Fields aim for fall play


JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

Plans are on track to finally get Vernon Secondary fields back in the game. Although staff and students have been in the new school since January 2013, there’s been no outdoor space at the school for the Panthers to play. “It is a problem, and it is an eyesore,” said Bill Turanski, Vernon School District board chairperson. But the mounds of dirt surrounding the school are expected to be levelled out into playing fields in time for the new school year. Landscaping work is underway and the goal is to have the main football field and site work ready for use by school start up in September 2014. “We will be putting turf down so it’s not a matter of waiting for grass to grow,” said Turanski. The delay in completion of the fields is apparently due to weather and geothermal lines which weren’t placed deep enough. There are also a few other outstanding issues being addressed at the new school. The majority of the interior doors did not meet specifications, therefore the contractor is expected to replace them this summer. There is a hump in the gym floor which is also going to be fixed. School district staff are also working with the school to complete the remaining millwork items that were not included in the original building contract. There is also some electrical work and minor painting that needs addressing.

GVAC broadening vision for cultural plan RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Greater Vernon politicians want to ensure a cultural plan is something they can live with. A previous long-term vision for culture was developed but not endorsed officially and that’s something the current members of the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee want to avoid. “We want to look at whether there is room in the bylaw to encompass all potential uses,” said director Doug Dirk. “If we don’t look at the structure and just go with needs and wants, there will be

problems.” A cultural plan is currently being developed, but there is some concern that aspects of the plan, such as facilities or programs, may not fit with fiscal realities. “We need to get our house in order so we know what we can Doug Dirk serve instead of finding out the house isn’t big enough for the family,” said Dirk. Among the questions the committee

The New 2014

must determine is whether financial grants will only be provided to cultural groups or if facilities will also be made available. “The committee must be comfortable with the outer boundaries of what it wants to provide,” said Tannis Nelson, community development co-ordinator. However, Nelson is urging committee members not to restrict what the cultural plan may look like. “I would be worried if we pigeon-hole too much because some innovative ideas could come out of the plan.” Director Mike Macnabb wants funding options for cultural amenities considered.

“It shouldn’t necessarily be the taxpayer on the hook for needs and wants of every group,” he said. The process will include looking at what other communities do for arts. “Are we investing enough? Are we investing too much?” said Juliette Cunningham, chairperson. It has been decided that GVAC members will regularly be kept up to date on the development of the cultural plan. “There’s no point spending $100,000 (on a study) and dragging everyone along to an end, and no one likes it,” said Cunningham.

RID aims for safer roads Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Mothers Against Drunk Driving could be helping to RID North Okanagan roads of drunk drivers. MADD BC has shown an interest in implementing its RID 911 program in the area. Through signage, public awareness campaigns and education, the pro— Warren Smith gram encourages the public to call 911 to report suspected impaired drivers to police. Although calling 911 to report an impaired driver is not a new idea, it’s one that could be more widely used to save more lives. “Surveys have shown that 50 per cent of Canadians felt that calling 911 to report a suspected impaired driver was not an appropriate use for 911,” according to MADD’s fact sheet on the

A key partner is missing at the table. The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee will ask the Vernon School District to send a representative to regular meetings. “The school district does bring some expertise to the issues of arts, youth and culture,” said director Mike Macnabb. School district representatives have previously attended meetings, and while they did not have a vote, they could take part in

program. “Results to date have shown that a 911 program to report suspected impaired drivers is a low-cost community program which is effective at taking impaired drivers off the roads.” Along with making impaired drivers aware of the increased potential of being caught, the program has proven successful in other communities. The number of 911 calls to report suspected impaired drivers increased between 45 and 80 per cent in the first year of implementation. MADD will be contacting North Okanagan stakeholders in the area to see if there is interest in the program, which MADD covers the cost of. “It’s fantastic to see a program that you do see success from that there’s no cost to communities for,” said Warren Smith, Safe Communities Unit rural program co-ordinator. Coldstream and Enderby have recently expressed interest in such a program, particularly around area waterways. “The program also focuses on boating as well,” said Smith.

the discussion, particularly when school district properties were involved. However, a school trustee has not been at GVAC for some time, and Macnabb wants that to change. “What’s missing is a youth aspect,” said Macnabb, adding that view is particularly needed as GVAC develops a cultural plan. Macnabb’s call for school district representation gained support from most of his colleagues. “When we’re talking about the

science centre or other organizations, they depend on students,” said director Bob Fleming. “Without schools, attendance at some functions would plummet.” However, not everyone is enthusiastic about the school board being involved in discussions. “There’s a difference between being interested and contributing financially and the school district would be hard-pressed to contribute financially,” said director Gyula Kiss.

News roger knox/ morning star

Salmon Arm’s Sherri Funfer got to spend a day with Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP police service dog members Const. Matt Taylor (with Frieda) and Const. Marc Jones Tuesday, watching them put the canines through training.

Civilian earns day with K9 unit roger knox

“Any dog lover would love a chance to do this.”

Morning Star Staff

Sherri Funfer’s brother knows her well. When Ted Funfer and his wife, Julie, attended the Pooch Partners’ Raise the Woof fundraiser in Vernon in November for the Okanagan Humane Society and HugABull Rescue and Advocacy Society, they saw an auction item that was perfect for Sherri and gave it to her as a Christmas present: Spending the day with the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP police service dog squad. “It was a wonderful surprise,” said Funfer, a marketing administrator for the Salmon Arm Savings and Credit Union. “They knew I loved German shepherds and dogs so they thought I’d have an amazing time.” Funfer’s amazing time with Const. Marc Jones and his German shepherd, Traxx, was Tuesday in Vernon. She watched Jones training with Traxx and other members of the Vernon-North Okanagan police service dog squad – there are three handlers and canines that cover the North Okanagan, Shuswap and all the way to Revelstoke. Funfer watched Traxx go through some training drills, including tracking a hidden officer.

— Sherri Funfer

“We show all the different profiles the dog works on,” said Jones. “That includes criminal apprehension and drug searching. We have two puppies in training and we’ll show Sherri what we do to get these dogs up to a point where we can try to get them into training to become regular police dogs.” Dogs all start their training at eight weeks of age, and most of the canines come from the RCMP’s breeding program in Alberta. “We try to get the police dog out for any serious situation,” said Jones. “We like to try and use the dog wherever necessary.” A recent example would be the use of a police service dog and handler to help find a suicidal woman in a rural area of Vernon. The police dog was quickly able to establish a track leading away from the home. About 75 metres from the house, they located an area where the woman had stopped briefly. The track carried on for about another 500 metres across an open field and into a heavy bush area. The woman was located lying

near a tree. When she was found she was very weak from a selfinflicted injury. She was transported to hospital to recover. Her life was saved by a family member who made the original call, and by the police service dog who found her. Funfer, who looks after a 14-pound Jack Russell terrier named Ruby at her home, has been a fan of German shepherds since her family had one when she was a child. Her day with the police service dog was a Christmas present well enjoyed. “Getting to see what they do, spending time with the officers and the canines and just having a different experience is great,” said Funfer. “It’s a wonderful opportunity and a great fundraiser. Any dog lover would love a chance to do this. “The German shepherds are amazing, wonderful dogs, very friendly. I think people have a lot of misconceptions about them. They’re like big puppies. They love people.” Jones said the local detachment supports a lot of organizations like the Humane Society and SPCA and have previously provided a training day as an auction item so people can experience what the dog handlers do for training with the canines.

Get outside and live

elcome to Unplug and Play Week in the North Okanagan. A great idea and a community project of the North Okanagan Optimist Club in partnership with the Early Years Council and the Vernon School District. Many community-minded businesses, including this one, are also contributing to the cause and in case you missed it there was a wonderful 12-page supplement in last week’s Morning Star that you can still get in many locales, including here at the newspaper. The main idea is, like the front page says, - Kids Having Fun!! I don’t know if two exclamation points were necessary but they are trying to get the point across that kids today need more Glenn Mitchell exercise, more outside everything, more unstructured activity and just generally more time away from the computers and smart phones and other electronic devices that dominate their lives with untold consequences for society down the road. Now I’m not going to get all self-righteous about kids these days being addicted to video games and such because, one, I understand the attraction, and two, it’s not like I spent all my youth doing constructive and healthy activities. I’d hate to add up the hours I spent playing Strat-O-Matic baseball, usually by myself, and then more countless hours figuring out batting averages and ERAs, of which I just found out one of my kids has no idea how to figure out so, ultimately, I’ve failed him. In fact I enjoyed working with baseball numbers so much, even my own from my minor baseball career, I once thought I might want to go into accounting. I actually tried studying it at school until I found out it wasn’t as much fun as baseball stats and bailed pretty quickly. I also spent way too many hours watching TV after school, which makes me an expert at Brady Bunch trivia (Marcia, Marcia, Marcia) and a bit of an expert on the long-gone soap opera Another World (why I watched that I’ll never know but I

guess because it was on at 4 p.m. and it was better than whatever was on the other channel...I wonder how Mac and Rachel are doing anyway?). However I also played minor baseball, minor football, a bit of minor hockey and a major amount of classical guitar lessons, although don’t ask me to play anything beyond Jingle Bells, although one day I will once again pick up my old Yamaki and play Camptown Ladies once again (a classic of a different kind). What we also did as kids was get together and play stuff. Like touch football at VSS, or road hockey at the Lakeview pool (of course in the off season without water and we had to climb the fence) and even kick the can on occasion. So we had to organize it (my big brother was pretty good at that), convince people to come, keep it clean (well most of the time, a few bloody noses along the way) and all with no parental input at all (we might have told them where we were and what we were doing but there was less anxiety back then and as long as we made it back in time for dinner...). My kids played minor sports and even read a few books, the old-fashioned way and with a lot of prompting by their old man on occasion, but they did spend too much time in front of a screen as well. However I understand the attraction of NHL 04 through NHL 14, and is it that much different than Strat-O-Matic Baseball, except it’s a screen instead of a board and the game figures out stats on its own? Still, I felt better when they actually went outside and shot hoops or even got 12 to 15 guys together for a roaring road hockey game in the cul-de-sac, just like the old days. I think our kids, for the most part, do an amazing job of balancing social media, school, sports, friends, peer pressure etc, and we fret about them way too much (likely like our parents did, as well). But having said that, they do have their heads down way too often looking at a screen that sometimes may seem like it’s bringing the world to you. Technology ironically expands our world and narrows it at the same time. The real world and all it offers at this time of year, and the real people that live in it, await you and all you have to offer. So get unplugged, lift your head up and have fun. You’ll be glad you did.

It’s not often a good news story turns out to be a bad news story. Such appears to be the case with the humpback whale. Earlier this week, the federal government announced it intended to downgrade the status of the humpback whale from threatened to species of concern. That’s good news. The north Pacific population of humpback whales was listed as threatened in 1985. Given the Conservative government’s apparent dislike for anything that contributes to the preservation of the natural world, the initial knee-jerk reaction was to view the downgrading of the humpback’s status with cynicism. But the government’s decision to downgrade the humpback whale’s status came on the recommendation of the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. COSEWIC, made up of experts, including university researchers and biologists from provincial and federal agencies, made the determination after considering evidence from extensive population monitoring over the last several decades. Downgrading the status of the humpback means time and money can be applied to helping other species recover. But interest groups, such as the Living Oceans Society, view the government’s decision as just another stone on the highway to giving the Northern Gateway pipeline the green light. A cynical view, but given the haste exhibited by the federal government in downgrading the humpback, the view has gained traction. That’s bad news. The only way the federal government can alleviate that cynicism is to exhibit similar haste when COSEWIC recommends the humpback whale should once again be placed on the list of threatened species. A penny saved isn’t always a penny earned. Black Press

A centennial to remember

have the pleasure of writing on behalf of the Courthouse Centennial Organizing Committee with the Vernon Bar Association. We want to sincerely thank all of those that came out the Vernon Courthouse's 100th anniversary event. We were truly floored to see the incredible interest and support the community gave to our stately building and the work that happens inside. We never expected so many people to visit. We originally thought two lawyers doing a tour on the hour would be more than enough. Instead, we had five lawyers leading as many tours as they could all day. We all enjoyed being able to share the inner workings of the courthouse and to talk about how the justice system works in smoking costs As an old, un-reformed smoker, I can say say that the statistics are conclusive. On average, you will live several years longer if you never smoke or give up smoking early. Here are some other statistics I garnered off the Internet: 1. Only about 15 per cent of B.C. residents smoke – or 690,000. 2. The total federal and provincial tax as of April 1, 2014 will be $6.88 per pack of 20 cigarettes. 3. My wild guess is that the average cigarette smoker smokes 15 cigarettes a day. If accurate, the contribution he/she makes to federal and provincial coffers is $1,883 a year. Multiply that by 690,000 and you get $13 million in tax dollars contributed by B.C. smokers each year. On the March 19 front page, there is a statement attributed to the Canadian Cancer Society that, “smoking kills about 6,000 British Columbians annually and costs the B.C. economy $2.3 billion a year.” I did the long division. Each smoking caused death cost our province $383,333 on average. Does that seem like a reasonable figure to health care professionals? How is the cost to the province figured? Does it include the taxes that smokers have paid over many years, which non-smokers have not? What makes sense to me is smokers die younger than non–smokers, smokers die faster than non-smokers and therefore, they are less costly than non-smokers in both medical care and long-term care. Smoking is dying out. This is not the bad

the courtroom. And many lawyers will tell you they cannot recall when the public gallery in courtroom 301 was so packed with people. old days when restaurants, bars and homes were filled with smoke. The few smokers I know step well away from the non-smokers outside of buildings to not offend them. We are addicts to a legal drug, but try not to offend. If you are a parent that smokes, you should quit to send a good example to your kids. It is not the occasional smoker on the street that will make this seem attractive. I don’t think Lumby is the only place to have this wrong. The negative health aspects of smoking are not disputable. I think many of the costs associated with smoking most definitely are. Doug sonju

ments in living walls (systems that compose various types of plants). The art work does not effectively contribute to environmental beauty. With a bit of love, plants are energetic and oxygen-producing, air-cleaning, vibrant, dynamic, cooling and natural. Art work that is seldom photographed has few of these qualities. Does living live in grim pain and suffering give us any benefit? Does the society wish us to co-create and spread some greenery and joy? Living walls are rewarding. Gardeners and enjoyers are usually happy healthy people. Once the murals paint is dry the benefits seem to decrease. Can we learn to accept a different point of view? Let’s make ourselves and our town happier. Would not living walls also bring more tourists to our lovely town? n. andy matysiak

Living waLLs One great day, I asked my young daughters their opinion on the Vernon murals. Quickly, they chimed in unison, “No one is smiling on them." Interesting and true. What is behind the sadness? Why? A reflection of history? People can and do smile in desperate times. Do we look to the past to learn or mimic? Money spent on murals does have benefits, however not compared to invest-

We also wish to congratulate the law students of Vernon Secondary School on their masterful performances at the mock trials. The time and effort you gave in preparing for your mock trials showed and we loved hearing the many compliments from those watching in the gallery. Finally, we wish to express our gratitude to the judges and masters of the Provincial and Supreme courts for their support and participation in the celebration. And we hope the registrar and staff of the courthouse will forgive us for turning their normally orderly building into such a party. Dustin griffin, on behalf of the courthouse centennial committee skied to the lodge to alert the rescue team and the two sisters who stood by and offered moral support. One of you took my skis off. Thank you to the two doctors who stopped for assistance, and to anyone else who stopped, thank you. I am very grateful to live in such a caring community. georgette elrick

Postal service a priority richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Ottawa is being told to keep its hands off the postal service in Lumby. The village has written Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes insisting that potential federal cuts to post offices would not be appreciated. “Our post office is an integral part of the community,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. Lori Mindnich “It serves all of the way out to Mabel Lake and people pick up parcels there. If we didn’t have this, people would have to drive to Vernon

Friday May 2, 2014

and a lot of people don’t have vehicles.” While there is no indication that the Lumby post office is at risk, Mindnich says there is a need for council to take a stance given what has occurred to service levels in other communities. “We want to be proactive instead of reactive.” The issue of postal service arose recently when council had a presentation from the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association. “Council is concerned with the current proposal to replace home mail delivery service with community mail boxes and would like Canada Post to engage in a comprehensive and meaningful public consultation with municipalities in order to review all options,” said Mayor Kevin Acton in the letter to Mayes.

Logging a concern richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Cherryville residents continue to take a stand over logging. About 55 people attended a public meeting Thursday to discuss concerns that they may lose access to an area deemed sensitive environmentally and economically. “We want to keep up the pressure,” said Eugene Foisy, regional district director. B.C. Timber Sales, a government agency, is proposing to allow 209 hectares in the North Fork area to be sold off for timber harvesting. If the process proceeds, the site could include eight new cutblocks, as well as a 6.5-kilometre road to allow for harvesting. However, residents want the 209 hectares preserved for future addition to the community forest, which provides local access to timber. “We want it to be selectively logged like the rest of Cherry Ridge,” said Foisy. “We’re concerned about the watershed.” Another major concern is the possibility of landslides. “We want a hydrologic assessment,” said Foisy. “There are pretty steep slopes there, slides are occurring and there are people living below. The area can be logged but not in that manner (clearcuts).” Community representatives have met with B.C.’s chief forester and they hope to meet the forests minister.

Lumby vigilant about doctors richard rolke Morning Star Staff

There isn’t a doctor shortage in Lumby, but officials aren’t wanting to take a chance. Village council has been invited to a May 7 seminar in Kamloops that focuses on doctor recruitment in communities. “Lumby is not having an issue but we want to ensure we provide support for the community,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. There are currently three doctors in Lumby, and Acton admits that ongoing access can Kevin Acton change based on a physician’s individual needs and family commitments. “If a person wants to live in your area and work in your area, they will and if they don’t, they won’t,” he said. There is also a concern that any increase in the population of Lumby, Cherryville and the rural area could put significant pressure on the existing physicians. “Our guys are already busy,” said Acton. Besides ensuring the health care of current residents, the village considers access to physicians as a critical part of long-term economic development for the community. “We wouldn’t have got the seniors’ residence without the support of our doctors,” said Acton. “Young families or anyone moving into a community will check for two things first, a school and doctor.” The Kamloops session is being organized by the Southern Interior Local Government Association. “This is a dynamic seminar that addresses what communities need to develop a solid recruitment tool kit,” said Alison Slater, SILGA executive director, in a newsletter. “Learn who the go-to people are and what steps communities can take to be recruitment ready. The session will address funding, incentives and how to keep the long game in mind.” The session will be facilitated by Marilin States, a professional recruitment consultant who helped bring four physicians to Creston.

of $47.18 which is for municipal tax collection only,” said township chief financial officer Brian Freeman-Marsh. Capital expenditures would cost $2.1 million, which is down from a $2.6 million projection in March, and the township’s public works budget is pencilled in for 2014 at $1.332 million. Final adoption is expected May 5. Couns. Ed Hanoski and Andrew Casson were absent from Tuesday’s regular council meeting.

changes to the city’s elections procedure bylaw. “We talked about things like voting day registration rules and nomination deposits,” said Coun. John Trainor, committee chairperson. “But what we’re saying is, we want to stay with the bylaw as written.” Things like voting day registration, advance voting chances, special voting opportunities (available to residents or patients of a health care facility) and mail ballot voting. In the event of a tie vote after a judicial recount is held, the city bylaw states the vote is determined “by lot.” The city then has two options. “You take the people who are tied, put their names in a hat and draw a name, or you have a run-off election,” said

administrator Melinda Stickney. If a run-off election was to be held to determine a winner, it would include all of the candidates, and not just the people who are tied. No new candidates would be allowed to enter. The committee also considered a deposit of not more than $100 be required to accompany nomination submissions, and also debated changing the order of names on the ballot, which, currently are listed alphabetically. However, neither will be implemented for this year’s municipal vote which is slated for Saturday, Nov. 15. Deputy corporate officer Natalie Garbay was appointed chief election officer while Stickney and Wendy Wallin were named deputy chief officers for the election.

News City hosts housing forum

Morning Star Staff

Do you want to build attainable housing in Vernon? Are you interested in creating a secondary suite in your home? Would you like to know the results of a local housing needs assessment? A forum to provide information, ideas and networking opportunities for people interested in affordable and attainable housing takes place Thursday from 3 to 6:30 p.m. at the Schubert Centre. “We want the community to be up to date on

the programs and policies that exist to encourage attainable housing but also discuss the challenges to reaching our housing goals,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham, chairperson of Vernon’s affordable housing committee. The forum is broken down into three main sessions and participants are welcome to pick and choose which sessions to attend. First on the agenda at 3 p.m. is B.C. Housing and the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation to talk about provincial and federal programs. The

next session begins at 4 p.m. and includes a panel of speakers on the results of the Regional District of North Okanagan quality of life survey, universal design guidelines for aging in place and an overview of a local housing needs assessment. The final session at 5 p.m. will be an interactive workshop to review the current municipal policies on attainable housing and provide participants a chance to give feedback to the City of Vernon.

‘MIRACLE MOLECULE’ SUPERCHARGES CIRCULATION, PROMISING BETTER BLOOD FLOW, BLOOD PRESSURE AND INCREASED MENTAL CLARITY & STAMINA! Are you concerned with high blood pressure or cholesterol, a lack of stamina and energy, a dip in libido and physical performance,or the increase of “senior moments?” The answer to living without these health concerns has been discovered in what scientists are calling the most important health breakthrough of our time. The discovery starts with nitric oxide (N-O)! OVER 40 LOSING CRUCIAL RESERVES N-O is a natural substance produced by the body that has amazing effects on health and circulation. The American Heart Association published one of many studies showing that many people over 40 don’t produce enough N-O. In fact, your body produces less than half of what it did at 20. NOBEL PRIZE WINNING DISCOVERY Three researchers received the prestigious Nobel Prize for this discovery. One of the winners says, “There may be no disease process where this miracle molecule does not have a protective role”.

with energy levels, blood pressure, cholesterol, joint discomfort, and assisted in strengthening the immune system. 90-SECOND CIRCULATION BOOSTER Based on the research of Dr. Nathan S. Bryan, PhD, who lectures to doctors around the world about Nitric Oxide, Neogenis® Labs has created a revolutionary lozenge, called Neo 40 daily, that makes it easy to restore N-O levels. This “fast-dissolve” lozenge restores your N-O to youthful levels by dissolving within 90 seconds and begins to work immediately, which leads to better circulation, for many in as little as 20 minutes. BETTER CIRCULATION TO WHOLE BODY Better circulation helps increase stamina, maximizes metabolism, helps manage stress and maintains healthy sexual function. Healthy N-O levels also promote better blood pressure and cholesterol as a result of improved circulation to all major organs.

SURPRISE BENEFITS FOR MEN & WOMEN “Adequate amounts of Nitric Oxide insure sufficient amounts of blood to flow to the extremities, especially the penis, resulting in an erection. The same applies to women; without proper blood flow to the clitoris, GOOD NEWS FOR BOOMERS! Researchers reported that N-O helps orgasms are difficult,” says Dr. Bryan.

Kozak tees up for Canada at world event TYLER LOWEY Morning Star Staff

Vernon golfer Conner Kozak will get a European stamp on his passport this summer. Kozak has been selected to represent Team Canada at the World University Golf Championships, June 23-27, in Crans-Montana, Switzerland. “This is a very well known tournament and I am looking forward to see how I stack up internationally,” said Kozak. “I am very excited, I have never been to Europe.” Team Canada will consist of six golfers. The University of British Columbia Thunderbird will be accompanied by teammate and close friend Scott Secord of Calgary. “We went with the six best golfers in Canada. It just so happens that two of them are friends and teammates,” said Team Canada coach Robin Stewart, the head golf coach at the University of Alberta and president of the Golf Coaches Association of Canada. “Conner is a terrific player who is just coming into his own on the golf course. This will be excellent for him,” said Thunderbirds’ head coach

Chris MacDonald. Golfers from 25 countries will try their luck at the Crans-sur-Sierre golf course, the same site that hosts the Omega European Masters. The course is situated on the elegant HautPlateau resort. Kozak is working through his junior season at UBC and is team captain. “We got a good, young team here with a good future. The guys call me ‘Grandpa’ even though I’m only in my third year,” said Kozak, who contacted Stewart at the beginning of the year expressing his interest in representing his country. “He is going to have a huge role on this team. We are looking for him to be one of our top golfers,” said Stewart. It has been Kozak’s performance this season that solidified his spot on the roster. In his first tournament of 2014, Kozak placed 11th at the Folino Men’s Invitational in mid-February, in Industry, Calif. He led UBC to fourth place. From Industry, the Thunderbirds travelled north along I-5 for the Sacramento State Invitational.


Vernon’s Conner Kozak, a third-year player with the UBC Thunderbirds men’s golf team, will represent Canada this summer at the World University Golf Championships in Switzerland. Once again Kozak led his team, this time to ninth place. He ended the tournament tied for 20th. “My ball striking is a lot more consistent this year. My tees and approach shots have been pretty good too,” said Kozak. His best personal finish came at the Embry-Riddle University Bash at the

Beach, earlier this month in Daytona Beach, Fla. Kozak shot even par both rounds, finishing in a tie for ninth. UBC finished third. “I didn’t make many mistakes that tournament,” said Kozak. Added MacDonald: “He works hard at his game and goes about his business quietly. He has a calming pres-

ence out there.” The Thunderbirds won the Western Washington Invitational last September, in Bellingham. “That really got the ball rolling for our season. It gave us confidence early,” said Kozak. Before Kozak and Team Canada hop on a jet for the Swiss Alps, he has a

few major tournaments to attend. The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics Championship goes May 20-23, in Daytona Beach, Fla. The Golf Canada University/ College Championship goes June 3-6, in Winnipeg, Man. The 5-foot-11 Seaton Sonics grad is studying third-year kinesiology.

Last-minute goal lifts Raiders past Shamrocks Morning Star Staff

Veteran Pho Heng’s bounce shot found the net inside the post with 40 seconds left to give the hometown Kelowna Raiders a 6-5 win over the Armstrong Shamrocks in the season-opening Okanagan Senior C Lacrosse League game for both teams Friday at Kelowna Memorial Arena. The Shamrocks played their home opener in the three-team loop Saturday night against the Kamloops Rattlers.

“I saw a lot of good things out there tonight, and a few things we need to work on,” said Armstrong coach Glenn Mitchell, whose team took 94 penalty minutes Friday to Kelowna’s 35, and were out-shot 45-40. “All in all, I liked what I saw from a lot of our players out there tonight. We have a lot of new faces and it takes a bit of playing time together to work out all the kinks.” Jarrett Medhurst scored twice in the opening period for Armstrong, including a bit of a fluke goal after

his original shot missed the net, the ball caromed off the end boards and hit Kelowna goalie Grahame Cousins in the back of the leg and bounced into the net. Rob Rintoul tied the game 3-3 in the second period before Jamie Cockerill gave the Shamrocks their only lead of the night. The teams were tied 4-4 after two. Kyle Versteeg scored in the third for Armstrong. n The Armstrong Junior Shamrocks fell 8-7 to the Kamloops

Venom in their Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League home opener Friday night at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Irish scored four times in the third after trailing 6-3 after 40 minutes. Drew Hassard and Cam Nelson each had 2+2 for the Shamrocks while Joel Castle, Sam Hanley and Austin Williamson added singles. The junior Shamrocks kicked off the regular season in Kelowna Thursday, pounding the hometown

Raiders 11-3 at Memorial Arena. Nelson had 3+2 to lead Armstrong, who out-scored the Raiders 9-1 over the final 40 minutes. Williamson added a deuce and Austin Pugh chipped in 2+1. Single goals went to Hanley (2A), Keith Minnis, Hassard and Ben Pointer. Goalie Cole MacFarlane also got in on the offence, picking up two helpers as did Marlon Forrest. The defending champion Vernon Tigers began their season Saturday night in Kamloops.

Teams begin quest for RBC berth Morning Star Staff

The four squads that will join the host Vernon Vipers in the RBC Cup Canadian Junior A hockey championship May 10-18 at Kal Tire Place are about to be determined. The five-team Crescent Point Energy Western Canada Cup started Saturday in Dauphin, Man. featuring the host Kings, BCHL champion Coquitlam Express, Alberta champs Spruce Grove Saints, the Yorkton Terriers from Saskatchewan and the Manitoba winners, Winnipeg South Blues. The top two teams advance to Vernon. The Express begin play in the round-robin event this afternoon against Spruce Grove. The Vipers open the RBC Cup May 10 against the East champions. Four teams are contesting the East region’s Fred Page Cup in Sainte-Jerome, Que., including the host Panthers. They are joined by the Central Canada Hockey

League champion Carleton Place (Ont.) Canadians and the Maritime champion Truro (NS) Bobcats. The Quebec League’s championship final between Granby and Sherbrooke went to Game 7 Saturday. The winner advances to the Fred Page Cup, which begins Wednesday, with the winner of the tournament advancing to Vernon. The Central representative will be one of four teams competing for the Dudley Hewitt Cup in Wellington, Ont., including the host Wellington Dukes. Joining them in the tournament, which starts Tuesday, are the Ontario champion Toronto Lakeshore Patriots; the Northern Ontario Junior League champion Kirkland Lake Gold Miners; and the winners of the Superior International Hockey League, the Fort Frances Lakers. The tournament winner advances to the RBC Cup.

Winterhawks end Rockets’ WHL season Morning Star Staff

It was a disappointing end to a great Western Hockey League year for the Kelowna Rockets. The Portland Winterhawks scored twice in the first period and rolled to a 7-3 win over the Rockets in Game 5 of the Western Conference final in front of a soldout crowd of 6,331 Friday night at Prospera Place. The Rockets, who set a regular-season club record with 57 wins, won the opening game of


Thin Lizzy’s Phillip Lynott sang it best: “The boys are back in town.” After a forgetful Fred Page Cup loss in the B.C. Hockey League final against the Coquitlam Express, the Vernon Vipers have returned from a week of relaxation. “It felt so good to go home again,” said Liam Coughlin, a Boston native. “I haven’t been home since Christmas.” Head coach/GM Jason Williamson and his coaching staff elected to give the team some much needed time off to charge the batteries and enjoy the holidays before the RBC Cup, May 10-18 at Kal Tire Place. “Today (Friday) was our second practice. I skated them pretty hard last night. Today we are going to spend some time on small area skill stuff and worry about our systems later on,” said Williamson. Fellow American Kenny Citron spent Easter in his hometown of Hartsdale, N.Y. He got the chance to take in Game 1 of the Philadelphia Flyers-New York Rangers series. “It was so awesome. Rangers are my team; Madison Square Garden was sweet,”

the series, but couldn’t maintain the momentum against the highpowered Winterhawks who won the next four games and are now off to the WHL final for the fourth consecutive season. Rockets head coach Ryan Huska said his team didn’t match the Winterhawks’ will to win. “I hate to say it, but we got out-competed,” said Huska. “You can stomach being out-skilled, hey, that’s the way it is sometimes, some guys are blessed with more skill.

The hard part that we’re more disappointed about is that we didn’t have enough compete in a lot of the games.” The Winterhawks will move on to meet the winner of the Edmonton Oil Kings-Medicine Hat Tigers series in the WHL final. Vernon’s Curtis Lazar and the Oil Kings looked to wrap up the series Saturday night at home, while Vernon’s Cole Sanford and the Tigers try to claw back from a 3-1 series deficit.

Canadians earn diamond split Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Canadians Pee Wee AA baseball team managed a split on Easter Monday against Kelowna at Lombardy Field. Game 1 saw Kelowna slide past the Canadians 3-1. Chase Batchelor pitched five innings, striking out five batters. Jack Janzen singled home Chris McIntosh for Vernon’s only run. Vernon salvaged the road trip with a 11-6 win in the second game. Matthew Hansen cashed in two Vernon RBIs, scoring Koll Cherkowski and Janzen. Hansen would come around to score on Carter Morris’s single. The Canadians kept the offence coming in the third. Eric Foufoulas’ single scored Brayden Beacom and McIntosh drove in Batchelor. There was some excellent executional hitting done by the Canadians in the fifth.

Batchelor picked up an RBI in the fifth when he doubled to left. He would later score on a sacrifice fly off the bat of McIntosh. Ryan Vandesande singled in Janzen in the sixth inning. Carter Morris started the game on the bump for Vernon. He went three innings, striking out two. McIntosh was on fire from the plate and the mound. He came on in relief to pitch the final four innings, as he struck out six Kelowna hitters. The C’s defence was stellar in the nightcap. Foufoulas, catching, recovered a dropped third strike, making the throw to Batchelor at first for an out. McIntosh snagged a grounder, throwing to a stretched-out Ryan Gamage at first for an out, and Gamage ran down an infield grounder and tagged first for an unassisted put-out. Beacom and Cherkowski knocked down line drives off the bats of Kelowna hitters and threw them out at first base.

Kalamalka W.L. Seaton School Rotary Club For the past 5 years, Kalamalka Rotary Club has provided guidance to students at W.L Seaton School in fostering the Students’ Rotary Club. In the 2013/14 school year, the school’s Rotary Club has and continues to organize numerous events. Here are some of the highlights. Hallowe’en for Hunger: Classes competed to collect the largest amount of canned goods, instead of candy on Halloween night. The winning class was treated to a pizza lunch, which was funded by the school’s Rotary Club. Bake Sale for Abbeyfield House: Select Rotary Club members assisted in the preparation for the annual bake sale held to raise funds for this Vernon Seniors Residence. Christmas Basket: The Rotary Club canvassed a number of local businesses to donated products in order to fill a Christmas basket for a single mother and her two young daughters. Coldest Night of the Year: W.L. Seaton Rotary Club members participated alongside Seaton Leadership students in this fundraiser for the Upper Room Mission. Dream Auction: W.L. Seaton Rotary students assisted at the Kalamalka Rotary Club Dream Auction. Recycling: As a fundraiser for projects, the Rotary Club has taken charge of recycling cans and bottles every other Friday. Without the club, there would not be a recycling program at Seaton. Earth Day: The Rotary Club conducted recycling in the common area of Seaton during lunch hour on Earth Day to raise awareness about proper recycling protocols as well as the positive environmental impact of recycling. UPCOMING EVENTS Tides of Change: The Rotary Club is currently running a coin drive at the school. Classes are competing to fundraise the most, loose change. Proceeds will go to typhoon relief in the Philippines. Seaton Indie Fest: The Rotary Club has arranged an Indie Fest, taking place on April 24, with all proceeds going to the Upper Room Mission. Music will be performed by Seaton and VSS students. Music Marathon: In June, the Rotary club will be staging their annual Music Marathon, where students will volunteer to perform for an entire day of music. Spectators will be invited to make donations for their admission. Proceeds will go to War Child, an organization providing humanitarian assistance and longterm rehabilitation for youth who have experienced the trauma of war, to help them overcome that trauma and rebuild their lives. Rotary North Okanagan Youth Athletic Awards: Wednesday, June 11 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. 15 awards will be handed out ot the most outstanding female and male athletes and the most academic female and male athletes.

Hana’s Adventures in France Every year, the Kalamalka Rotary Club sends a local student on an exchange for a one-year stay in another country. For 2013-14 we selected Hana Ouchi, who is currently in Lyon, France. The Rotary world is divided into districts, and some districts will host 40 to 50 students. Districts arrange get-togethers when students gather to share their experiences. Hana has been great at updating her blog. Following are some edited excerpts of her story.

like our pride and joy. And oh the PINS! Pins are every exchanger’s most favourite thing. My blazer is getting heavier and heavier. The soirée’s entertainment consisted of ‘exchangers’ from each country singing their national anthem (37 in total) followed by dinner! Soooo yummy. Then we performed our dances. Everyone absolutely killed theirs and then the time came for our ‘troupe’ to go up on stage … and the DJ played the wrong music. SO AWKWARD. But hey, even with that, our district had by far the best performance of the night. After dinner the party began and everyone got on the dance floor. We all danced together, screaming out the music, making (Spring 2014) Our district exchange students all met up for a memories that we will never forget. Such an amazing night. bus trip to Paris. We were eager to see friends we hadn’t seen in months. The bus was filled with singing and food, like every road trip, and the 8 hrs on the bus just flew by. We did a little tour of Paris by bus, then headed off to our hostel where some students from other districts were also staying. I met heaps of fellow Canadians. We didn’t get to spend too much time with all the ‘exchangers’ though, because our district was rather behind on a presentation about our nationality which we were to perform at a soirée the next night. We decided to represent our nationality with a dance. We had a Bollywood dance, the Asians dancing Gangnam Style, the Latinos doing the Limbo, some Brazilian samba, and my ‘troupe’ of Canadians/Americans/Polish/Australians attempting a creative dance we hoped would not be too juvenile. Next morning the wakeup call was at 7 am, down Then came the good byes. Some of the good byes that really for breakfast and on the mean good bye.

Beautification is taking root in Enderby. The city has received a $4,300 grant from the B.C. Hydro-Tree Canada Community Regreening Program, which has a goal of planting trees. “Receiving the grant is a great opportunity for Enderby to beautify

parts of the city that have had recent infrastructure work,” said Coun.

Finally, there are signs of new growth in the valley, with fields turning golden and trees budding out and with the promise of tasty new foods, including maple blossoms and dandelions. Very soon, there will be asparagus, fresh salad greens, and rhubarb too. Did you know that maple flowers from local trees are quite sweet and edible and can be used in a variety of recipes? Like squash blossoms, the racemes of big leaf maple trees can be transformed into a surprising culinary confections from salads to casseroles and especially, into delightful fritters. The taste of maple blossoms is subtle: slightly nutty with a hint of sweetness. The recipe below is very tempura-like; thin, drippy, and puffs up around the blossom upon hitting the hot oil. This makes for a light, chewy, beignet-like fritter that’s perfect for breakfast, as a dessert course, or as an adornment to pudding or crème brûlée. It’s best to serve right away while hot and crispy, but I know some people even enjoy them cold. My dandelion recipe today uses tender new greens, cooked with chopped onion, minced garlic, chile pepper, then topped with grated parmesan cheese. Be sure to pick dandelions that haven’t been sprayed with chemicals. Now, is also the time to check our deep freezers for fruits and rhubarb not used during the winter so we can use it up before the new crop arrives. I have a tasty recipe that will make up two bumbleberry pies that will suit this cause well. Enjoy. Maple blossom fritters 2 - 4 cups blossoms 2 cups flour 2 tsp baking powder 2 tbsp corn starch 2 cups ice water Vegetable oil Powdered sugar Maple syrup, optional Check blossoms for insects. Dunk in sink full of water and swish rines well but carefully as they are delicate. Sift together flour, baking powder, and corn starch in a large bowl. Stir in ice water. Heat one inch of vegetable oil in a large saucepan on mediumhigh until a drop of water crackles and pops. Dredge blossoms in batter, allow excess to drip off, and carefully place in hot oil. Don’t

Add two cups of the hot chicken stock, cover the pan and turn off the heat. Go off and do something else as It can now sit there until roughly 10 to 15 minutes before dinner is served. While back preparinf dinner, reheat the broth and crank up the heat on the rice. Stir, stir, stir, adding a cup of hot broth every time it starts to look a bit dry.

Life is a highway and the public is invited to see and hear two new presenters take us on fascinating roads-less-travelled. Presented by Grannies à Gogo, Silk Road Adventures: Across China will be featured May 2 while Cycles of Life: Cycling Vienna to Budapest takes place May 9. Both power-point presentations are scheduled for 7 p.m. at the People Place (room 006). Givonna De Bruin follows in the footsteps of Marco Polo along the modern day Silk Road across China, taking in ancient sights of Beijing, Turpan, Urumqi and other historic venues. Along the way, we will see through her eyes the exquisite Karakul Lake in the Pamir Mountains en route to Pakistan, contrasted with the desert oasis of Dunhuang. Her journey passes through the walled city of Xi’an with its terra cotta warriors, and through the crossroads where various Silk Roads came together in Kashgar. Geographically and culturally, we will encounter something

Battle at Beaver Creek takes to big screen Morning Star Staff

Three years ago, the pre-production began — scripting, casting and location scouting. During the summers of 2012 and 2013, the action was captured on digital video, and early in 2014, the film wrapped and all of the special effects were completed, along with music and sound. Now on Saturday, area residents will have the opportunity to take part in the screening of a locally made feature film, Brian Taylor’s Battle at Beaver Creek. “I should start by thanking The Morning Star for its support throughout this entire process. If it wasn’t for arts editor Kristin Froneman letting us run that tiny article in May 2012, Indie filmmaker seeks battle location, we may never have found a place to make our movie,” said Taylor. “That article brought forward some awesome people that offered up their properties in Lumby, Lavington, Vernon and Armstrong. It really got the ball rolling.” Coming in at 82 minutes, the film is slightly shorter than Taylor had originally planned. “We had to cut some scenes, mostly because of scheduling problems, but also because I ran out of money,” said Taylor. With a budget of $9,000, Battle at Beaver Creek is the most expensive production offered so far by Taylor’s all-volunteer company, En Queue Film. The expenses went into costuming, props, makeup, insurance and mostly food.

brandon moeller photo

Randy Kirk (left), Sheldon Graham, Corky McMechan and Brian Taylor work on the Armstrong set of Battle at Beaver Creek. “Our volunteers don’t get paid unless the film makes money, but we have to at least keep them in food and water. Most of those volunteers were inexperienced cast and crew but we did have some experienced talent as well, both in front and behind the camera,” he said.

Matt Brown, local actor and director, operates the Hub Arts collective in Vernon. Brown portrays Terran, the main character, a man who feels it’s a better idea to go to the front and fight with everybody else, rather than wait for the possibility of the invading force making it to his sister’s home.

Lindsay, his sister, is portrayed by W.L. Seaton drama teacher Lana O’Brien. “Lana has only one scene in the film but it’s an important and powerful scene, and it shows off the talents of these two actors,” said Taylor. As Terran makes his way to Beaver Creek, an actual town on the Yukon/ Alaska border, he meets up with a teenager named Newman, portrayed by the 27th Street Theatre’s Sheldon Graham, a senior at Seaton. “Newman is the character that delivers our understanding of the world in which Canadians now find themselves. He is a gregarious kid who talks and talks,” said Taylor. “Sheldon had to memorize the most dialogue in the film as Newman, but it’s the subtle things that make his performance stick out. “If you are lucky enough to see the film, watch his expressions and body language, they speaks volumes.” What happens at the Battle at Beaver Creek? You can find out for yourself Saturday at 8 p.m. at the Towne Theatre in Vernon. En Queue Film will also be showing some other shorter films it’s made at 7:30 p.m. Plus, meet with the cast and crew. Tickets are $10 and can be purchased at Dulux Paints in Vernon or the Towne Cinema. For more information or to see the trailer, visit

Okanagan Symphony Youth Orchestra celebrates its 25th anniversary Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Symphony Youth Orchestra is celebrating its 25th anniversary with concerts in Penticton, Kelowna and Vernon during the first weekend of May. Founded by world-renowned composer Imant Raminsh, the orchestra is comprised of 75 youth ages 10 to 20-plus from all parts of the Okanagan Valley. They attend weekly rehearsals in Kelowna from September through May. The orchestra came under the Denton umbrella of the OSO two years ago and is now co-directed by Rosemary Thomson, music director of the OSO, and retired teacher Dennis Colpitts, conductor of Kelowna City Band, Kelowna International Choir and performer in many musical groups, including the OSO. Their shared pas-

sion is to promote the importance of music education at the highest level, especially to our youth, and raise the awareness of all artistic groups in our community. A component of the OSYO program is the inclusion of a composition element guided by Raminsh, which gives students an opportunity to compose a work and have it performed by the orchestra. “We are also able to enhance our students’ musical growth by providing workshops and sectionals with OSO professionals, as well as master classes with guest soloists” said Thomson. “A side-by-side concert series with the OSO is a highlight for our young players, many of whom take private instruction from our professionals.” Alumni have been invited to perform Wagner’s Dei Meistersinger Overture during the last concert of the weekend. “There have been many excellent musicians that have

gone through the OSYO these last 25 years, and we are looking forward to having them join us on the stage,” said Colpitts. Among them is Nicholas Denton, a cellist currently completing the first year of his bachelor’s degree at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. Originally from Kelowna, Denton began his studies at age seven at the Vernon Community Music School. The OSYO concert will include In Cymbalis Benesonatibus, a commissioned work for the 25th anniversary by Raminsh, Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, student compositions and Saint-Saens’ Cello Concerto No. 1 in A Minor. The concert in Vernon takes place May 4 at 7:30p.m. at Trinity United Church. Tickets available from OSYO Musicians, at the door and the Okanagan Symphony Office, 865 Bernard Ave., Kelowna. Adults are $15, seniors, alumni and students are $10.00 and children 12 and under are $5.

they shared. TAYLOR: The film made me laugh a couple times, mostly at Bubbles, who has some funny lines. I wasn’t expecting much from the film, but I’m happy to report that it didn’t annoy me. I am a little disappointed that $2.5 million of the $10 million budget came from our tax dollars, but I guess Canadian movie-goers can vote with their admissions. If you’ve never seen the boys before but are amused by raunchy ridiculousness, go check it out. HOWE: I chuckled twice, both scenes contained Jim Lahey (John Dunsworth) other than that I don’t recall even cracking a smile. Yet, saying that, I will be looking online to watch some older episodes. Howe gives it 3 filled test tubes out of 5. Taylor gives it 2.5 million tax dollars out of 5. The film is currently playing at the Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Live Well

HEALTH TIP brought to you by your Pharmasave Pharmacist TOM NOLAN

Generic medications are biologically identical to their brand name counterparts but they may differ in appearance at times. Even though the colour or size of the generic is different they are designed to give the same results as the brand name drug. We use many generics in Canada today. We will let you know when there is a change in brand. Let us know if you experience a change in effect. As summer approaches, many people look at diets to lose weight. Some of these diets concentrate on certain foods in greater abundance than one would eat normally. Let your doctor and pharmacist know you are trying one of these diets, especially if you are taking drugs like the “blood thinner” warfarin. Some foods can interfere with warfarin’s action and may alter regular blood tests. For many people, eating liver isn’t high on their preferred food list. However, prior to 1948, people diagnosed with pernicious anemia were prescribed a diet of raw liver. In that year, vitamin B-12 was first discovered as a chemical entity and a supplement was developed to treat the anemia. Much easier to take! The pituitary gland is the size of a pea but it is a powerhouse of activity. Located mid-brain behind the bridge of the nose, it produces hormones that affect many body systems as well as stimulating other glands to produce hormones. Our pharmacists are busy people but answering your questions about medication is one of our main jobs. We are never too busy for that.

Nothing beats live


ive performances have this funny way of building up nervous energy before the show. Whether it’s the performers or crew reciting lines or going over finishing touches, facility staff making sure everything is tidy on the business end of things, or the audience anticipating the show, this energy multiplies 10-fold in that last hour before Brian van Wensem show time. That’s the exhilaration of live performance and for most artists, a tangible part of the creative process. Experience the energy for yourself at the live events reaching their moment in weeks to come. Powerhouse Theatre’s last production of the season sends them out with a bang - the classic bedroom farce of mistaken identities - A Flea in Her Ear. Long married to her husband and suspecting him of having a wandering eye, a wife conjures a plot to trap him in the act. She entangles the innocent and guilty alike in a whirlwind of mistaken intentions. Throw in a jealous Spaniard shooting at anything that moves, and you have a hilarious end to a terrific Powerhouse season. There are 7:30 p.m. performances most evenings from Wednesday until

Centre Point

May 10, and matinees at 2 p.m. May 4 and 10. Coming up Saturday at the Performing Arts Centre, Canadian funny-man Ron James will be ranting his way through his latest oneman show, Take No Prisoners! The hilarity starts at 7:30 p.m. and you can call the Ticket Seller box office at 549-SHOW (7469) for your tickets. Also Saturday, Bonnie Kilroe is at the Schubert Centre for An Evening With Patsy Cline. Kilroe has a long list of impersonations under her belt including Cher, Barbra Streisand and Lady Gaga, and aims to honour the life of this country music pioneer using her unique vocal talents and flamboyant fashion. Showtime is 7:30 p.m. and you can save a few dollars by purchasing your tickets in advance through the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). And Vernon Community Music School’s Lights of Broadway is back at the Performing Arts Centre on May 9 and 10 for its production of the hit musical Footloose. With an epic soundtrack featuring the famous title song Footloose and other ‘80s classics, this upbeat musical is packed full of catchy fast-paced dance numbers. Choose from two evening performances starting at 7 p.m. May 9 and 10 or catch the May 10 matinee at 2 p.m. Buy your tickets through the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). Enjoy the shows.

Kal Tire backs skills training Morning Star Staff


Vernon-based Kal Tire has partnered with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada to offer a Skilled 4 Success program for youth.

With a national shortage in skilled trades forecasted, Vernon-headquartered Kal Tire is rolling out a new program with the Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada. The partnership has created a national youth program called Skilled 4 Success, to provide essential pre-employment exploration opportunities, job skills training and job shadowing experiences for youth across Canada and specifically in the communities of West Kelowna and Kelowna. Through a combination of inclub programs and off-site field trips, Skilled 4 Success offers both traditional and hands-on learning. Teens between the ages 13 and 18 are provided with networking and job-shadow opportunities with skilled professionals at Kal Tire stores or other

work environments. “It is a privilege to be working with Kal Tire to offer such an amazing program to the youth in our community,” said Jen Carter, Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs Empowerment through Employment program co-ordinator. “This opportunity will go a long way to giving them the skills and confidence they need to be successful in their careers in the future.” There is a focus on skilled

trades but teens are encouraged to explore a range of career options and identify their special talents. Skilled 4 Success teaches job search strategies, resume writing and general skills that can be applied in a range of careers. After a successful launch of Skilled 4 Success last year, the Okanagan Boys and Girls Club wanted to ensure that this opportunity was made available again for the youth in the community. The past program saw 22 young people participate and it is hoped that similar numbers will occur during the program offering this spring. Anyone youth interested in participating in future Skilled 4 Success Programs can contact Jen Carter (778-214-0331, or Brianne Gale (778-214-4134,

Bitumen in tankers poses a risk


y name is David Black. I am the majority owner of Black Press, the company that owns this newspaper. This is the first of two columns addressing what I see as the greatest threat to the B.C. environment in our lifetime. I am a reasonably sensible and conservative business-

man, not an alarmist. All of the information in this column can be confirmed from public sources. The oil industry wants to export Alberta bitumen to Asia via tankers. Under no circumstances should we allow that to happen. A bitumen spill at sea could destroy our coastline, together with the fish and wildlife that depend on it, for hun-

dreds of years. Bitumen, even if it is diluted, does not float in sea water if there is sediment present. This has been proven many times, most recently in a thorough Environment Canada study published Nov. 30 2013. Page 51 of the study provides graphic David Black evidence of sunken bitumen. Given that there is an abundance of sediment along the B.C. coast, the bitumen will

sink rapidly and there will be little chance of recovering any of it if there is a spill. By Northern Gateway’s own admission the likelihood of a bitumen spill at sea is more than 10 per cent over the next 50 years.  Others say that it is much higher. We are in agreement with the position taken by the coastal First Nations that even the slightest risk of a spill of bitumen at sea is unacceptable.   The grounding of the Exxon Valdez in Alaska in 1989 is often held up as an example of how bad an oil spill at sea can be. However, a spill of bitumen at sea would be much worse. The Exxon Valdez carried light crude and lost 250,000 barrels, one-eighth of a tanker load. The light oil floated and could be removed from the beaches. Even so, after four years of work with up to 11,000 workers and 1,400 boats involved, less than 10 per cent

of it was recovered. Roughly 200,000 birds and many kinds of other wildlife were killed. About 1,300 miles of shoreline were affected and the fishery has yet to fully recover. Bitumen is very different. It would harden up on shore and much of it would sink to the bottom, making it unrecoverable and killing virtually everything with which it came in contact. Imagine if we lost a full tanker load. Some say that with GPS-based navigation and double hulls, spills such as Exxon Valdez are not possible today. They are wrong. Double hulls do not prevent hull fracture if there is a collision at speed, only if there is a gentle scrape. As for the GPS claim, most marine accidents are caused by human inattention, not by a lack of knowledge about position. All ships carried systems to indicate their location before GPS came along. The Exxon Valdez crew could have

glanced at their instruments to determine their location but they didn’t, neither did the crew on the Queen of the North. Marine disasters regularly occur and a quick search of the Internet shows human error is most often the problem. Undoubtedly, there will be many more marine accidents in future. Our grandchildren will not thank us if we willingly risk the destruction of the B.C. coast on our watch. Fortunately there is a solution that is beneficial for all concerned. All we have to do is build a refinery at Kitimat. The refinery will convert the bitumen to gasoline, diesel and jet fuel which float and evaporate if they are spilled. Often little or no spill remediation is required. These refined fuels simply do not cause the habitat destruction of conventional or synthetic crude oil, or anywhere near the devastation caused by bitumen.

Harassment focus of upcoming session Morning Star Staff

The second part of this op-ed will run in the next issue. It will discuss the enormous value-add benefits and environmental advantages of a modern, green refinery. The pipeline from Alberta and the tanker fleet to export the refined fuels will also be considered. Let me declare my biases. I am for creating thousands of good permanent jobs in B.C. I am for creating billions of new tax dollars for government coffers. I am for reducing the planet’s greenhouse gas emissions. I am for building an oil pipeline that will never leak. I am for building a modern tanker fleet that carries only refined fuels that float and evaporate if spilled. I am against shipping bitumen in tankers. If you agree that we should not put bitumen in tankers please contact your local MP and say so. The Canadian government makes a decision on this next month.

All around the Gulf Islands hans tammemagi Special To The Morning Star

B.C. - As the Queen of Nanaimo chugged into Georgia Strait, the sun sparkled on the waves, fishing boats trolled the waters, a powerful tug pulled a barge on a long line and sailboats floated like butterflies. Soon we were in the Gulf Islands archipelago, a maze of more than 220 rocky masses ranging from small deathlydangerous-when-foggy reefs to large isles. Only Salt Spring, Pender, Mayne, Galiano and Saturna Islands receive B.C. Ferry service. At Galiano Island, a few cars clunked off the ferry and a few thumped on. Gulls soared and black cormorants dried their outstretched wings on the mooring posts like preachers blessing their flock. We entered Active Pass and watched our ferry make sharp turns in the narrow, twisting channel that separates Galiano and Mayne Islands. At Pender Island, my wife and I drove off the ferry. Day after sunny day followed, for the Gulf Islands lie in the rain shadow of the Olympic Mountains and have a warm Mediterranean climate. Staying at a cabin for a week, we discovered the islands have three very different personal-

In the forest we felt tiny amongst the enormous Douglas firs and western cedars all standing ram-rod straight. Here and there slouching arbutus trees with their peeling, rust-coloured trunks look like hippies lost amongst a cadre of soldiers. Surrounded by delicate ferns, sombre light, towering trees and bright green moss clinging to logs and rocks it felt primordial. We walked close together expecting a raptor or other Mesozoic beast to suddenly burst through the foliage. One day, we went kayaking to Portland Island, part of the Gulf Islands National Park Reserve, which sprawls over 15 islands and numerous islets. On the shore an oystercatcher

and a long-legged blue heron patrolled the beach for dinner. The tour leader found a large red crab hiding inside a soft moon-snail shell. Purple starfish were attached like glue to rocks. A regal eagle sat high in a fir tree. Thirty seals basked on a small islet their watery, large eyes nervously watching our progress. Our guide described the black and white orcas, or killer whales. Three pods of about 90 orcas live here and the ultimate thrill, he explained, is to kayak amongst them, their tall dorsal fins towering over you. Our next exploration was to neighbouring Salt Spring Island, the largest and most populated of the Islands and a Mecca for artists and authors. Ganges, the main town, is full of artisan shops, cafes, and restaurants serving fresh seafood. That afternoon we hiked a sea-side trail and watched ferries float regally past; then we tippled at one of the three island wineries. To explore the nautical character of the islands, which offer some of the best boating in the world, we visited Poets Cove on south Pender Island. We walked the beach toward the lighthouse

peering into tidal pools and admiring the artful necklaces of weathered driftwood logs that mark the high-tide line. Saturna, the smallest and most isolated of the main Gulf Islands, has narrow winding roads and little nightlife and is a little paradise lost in a time warp. Sheep graze in tiny meadows and feral goats scamper on hillsides. The isle is achingly beautiful with numerous beach accesses and forest trails that often lead to beautiful secret

glades or viewpoints. We found a small cove with an ancient native midden. We studied the layers of broken white clamshells and pondered how the coastal Salish natives lived here for 6,000 years. At day end, my wife and I hiked to a viewpoint and as the islands turned a misty blue-grey, we raised our glasses to this delightful feast of islands. Hans Tammemagi is with Travel Writers’ Tales.

gered hospitalizations and deaths among younger patients motivated a late-season surge in demand for flu shots after Christmas, resulting in temporary shortages of vaccine in some areas. Changes in policy also contributed to better protection against seasonal flu, said provincial health officer Dr. Perry Kendall. Health care workers and visitors were required to get the vaccine or wear masks in patient care areas, to protect patients with underlying conditions that make influenza more serious. After the health care worker immunization rate had drifted as low as 50 per cent, the new policy prompted 80 per cent of health care employees to be vaccinated and the remainder used masks, said Kendall. One health care aide in Grand Forks was fired after repeatedly refusing to wear a mask when working around patients. Health Minister Terry Lake said the total was increased by extending free flu shots to anyone who was considering visiting a relative in a health care facility during the winter.

Bridge by Phillip Alder GOOD BOOKS RETURN TO THE MARKETPLACE Happy Thanksgiving to my American readers. Each year, several good bridge books are republished, and 2013 was no exception. Four came from England: “Bridge for the Connoisseur” by Hugh Kelsey, “The Rabbi and the Weaker Sex” by David Bird and Ron Klinger (originally titled “Kosher Bridge 2”), “Playing to Win at Bridge” by Ron Klinger (all Weidenfeld & Nicolson), and “Card Play Technique” by Victor Mollo and Nico Gardener (Master Point Press). Kelsey discusses 58 interesting deals. The rabbi book is humorous and instructive. Klinger gives 90 problems, moving from elementary to intermediate

and on to advanced. The Mollo and Gardener book covers all aspects of declarer play and defense, with quizzes at the end of each chapter. Originally published in 1955, this edition has been modernized by Mark Horton, editor of Bridge Magazine. Here is a deal from this book. South is in three no-trump. West leads a low spade and East puts up the queen. What should declarer do? South has seven top tricks: one spade (given the lead), three hearts, one diamond and two clubs. He can get the other winners from diamonds, but if that finesse is losing, East will return a spade. Here, as you can see, if South takes the first trick, he goes down, losing one

diamond and four spades. But as long as declarer ducks the first trick, which the authors say requires willpower, the contract is safe. East returns his second spade and West wins, but he has no entry. And if spades were 4-3, South would lose at most one diamond and three spades.
