Tourism centre hits a roadblock

SPRING SKIING

Enjoying the sunny ski conditions at Sovereign Lake Nordic Centre are David Walker and Gareth Williams, from Westbank’s Telemark Ski Club. Sovereign Lake is open for its annual spring skiing season until Monday.

Vernon’s new visitor information centre remains in limbo. The facility, next to Civic Arena on 39th Av e n u e , was scheduled to open May 1, but a firm timeBob Spiers line is now unknown as the Ministry of Transportation has not approved property rezoning. “The local (ministry) office is waiting for a response from their regional traffic engineers on the matter,” states a city administration update to council. The ministry has a role to play because the property is 800 metres off of Highway 97. “Staff is hopeful that a response will be received shortly in order to bring the (rezoning) bylaw to the May 26 council meeting,” states the update. However, one council member isn’t sure the provincial government will sign off on rezoning.

“If it ever opens,” said Coun. Bob Spiers of the facility. “If they haven’t given approval by now, who knows. They’ve had it for a couple of months. I’m not sure how unusual that is.” The new location of the visitor information centre has fuelled considerable debate in the community, with many residents questioning the ability of tourists in RVs to access the site off the highway. Others have challenged the $292,215 cost to renovate the building. However, city officials have insisted that the new location is accessible and central for visitors to walk to services like restaurants and hotels. It has also stated that closing down the current tourism booths at the north and south ends of Vernon and centralizing services will save $70,000 annually. Until a decision is made by the Ministry of Transportation on rezoning, the lease at the south tourism booth, by the army camp, has been extended until the end of June. “It will reopen until such time as it’s relocated,” said Kim Flick, the city’s planning and building services manager.

Separate crashes claim lives on rural roads ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The B.C. coroners service is investigating two separate fatal North Okanagan motor vehicle accidents Sunday. Herman Gerrits, 64, of Enderby, died Sunday morning when the motorcycle he was operating collided head-on with a Ford F350 pickup truck shortly before 10:30 a.m. on Enderby-Grindod Road. A 25-year-old Lumby man was killed in a single-vehicle accident just before 2:30 a.m. on Whitevale Road in the village. His name had not been released by press time Tuesday. Two fatal accidents in one day in the local RCMP detachment area is rare.

“Words can’t describe it,” said VernonNorth Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gerry Kovacs on Monday. “They’re both sad stories. Having two in one day is a significant blow and it’s a significant strain on our resources. Police, emergency, in two jurisdictions, up through the night, get some sleep and get another call out.” The RCMP has been assisting the coroner with the investigations into the accidents. In Lumby, RCMP, Lumby Fire and Rescue, emergency services personnel and an RCMP accident reconstructionist received a report of a single vehicle rollover in the 1000 block of Whitevale Road. The vehicle, a Ford F350 truck, was

located overturned on the roadway. “The driver of the vehicle had been ejected; the passenger escaped from the vehicle and began CPR on the driver,” said Kovacs. The vehicle, Kovacs said, was occupied by two Lumby brothers, 25 and 23. The driver, the 25-year-old, died of his injuries at the scene. Kovacs said there is some indication the truck left the roadway for a bit, contacting the roadside ditch and ended up back on the road. He also said the brothers had received a call to “come over and help some friends out with a vehicle.” “We don’t know what was happening

before that,” said Kovacs. Police are asking that anyone who may have witnessed the accident or the vehicle prior to the crash, to contact Lumby RCMP at 250-547-2151. Kovacs said Gerrits, who, he said, “was relatively new to driving a motorcycle,” was northbound when he struck a southbound F350 pickup head-on. The four people in the truck reported no injuries. Police are asking that anyone who may have witnessed the collision or the vehicles prior to the crash, to contact Enderby RCMP at 250-838-6818. Both accidents are still in the early stages of investigation.

RBC Cup visitors loving region, hockey pictures. The scenery seems really beautiful.” Of course, while visitors are in awe of the scenery and climate, there is also a lot of love for Kal Tire Place. “This arena is nice. It’s the cleanest I’ve ever been in,” said Willett. “I looked at the (Okanagan Sports) hall of fame and it’s very informative. I think it’s really nice. It’s well-lit and not cold.” Said Sina: “It’s such a beautiful environment. The volunteers and staff have been great.” Naturally, most of the out-of-town fans are like the local hockey enthusiasts. They’re in Vernon to watch Canada’s top Junior A hockey squads. Some didn’t have to travel that far, like Roma Medves and her parents, John and Pat Robillard. Originally from Hudson Bay, Sask., about 120 kilometres north of Yorkton, the Robillards now live at Shuswap Lake Estates in Blind Bay, near Salmon Arm.

emo to North Okanagan real estate agents: Visitors to the area for the RBC Cup national Junior A hockey championship tournament at Kal Tire Place are, well, falling in love with the region. “My husband is already talking about retiring here,” joked Winnipeg’s Shelley Garrioch, sitting with several other Dauphin Kings parents and watching her son, Tyler, a forward, take on the Carleton Place Canadians Sunday night. “He was looking at the real estate news this morning.” Said Leanne Chapman, fellow Kings fan who lives in Killarney, Man., and whose son, Aubrey, plays for Dauphin: “I talked to my son and all he said was, ‘Mom, it’s unreal here.’ He’s never been to B.C. before.” And then there’s Chuck McGee, retired federal government fisheries communications employee, who lives in Kempville,

While a number of items were taken during a lateday break-and-enter in the Foothills Monday, one item stolen has left the victims devastated. Taken from the basement of a home in the 1400 block of Copper Mountain Court was a royal blue velour bag

It’s awesome. He’s 19, has been playing since he was five and had never been on a championship team before this year.” Each out-of-town team has its own cheering sections, made up mostly of parents and assorted relatives.

Blaze deemed suspicious Jennifer Smith

A former crematorium went up in smoke Sunday night. Firefighters were called to the one-storey commercial building blaze in the 1200 block of Kalamalka Lake Road Sunday at 11:15 p.m. “It was through the roof,” said Jack Blair, Vernon Fire Rescue deputy chief. “It was quite a large and destructive fire.” Crews contained the blaze, protecting businesses near the old brick structure which was once a crematorium, a garden centre and a car lot.

Council challenges changes to 25th Street richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Plans to divert traffic in a Vernon neighbourhood are getting a rough ride even before they go to the public. Council members questioned a proposal Monday that would see through traffic and left-hand turns limited at key intersections on 25th Street, from Pleasant Valley Road to 46th Avenue. “I’m getting calls and a lot of concerns,” said Coun. Brian Quiring. “There are a lot of

people who feel this is the wrong thing. It’s a good north/south connector so I’m not sure why we’re doing this.” The plan will be the focus of a public consultation session today from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Alliance Church’s Arbour room. Among the components of the proposal are a centre median at the intersection of 32nd Avenue and 25th Street, two intersections at 25th Street and 39th Avenue and a centre median at 43rd Avenue

and 25th Street. Amanda Watson, a municipal transportation technician, says the plan was developed because residents on 25th Street are upset about speed and the volume of vehicles trying to avoid 27th Street. “It’s classified as a local road and the requests have been to remove the through traffic,” she said. “Residents have requested we return it to a local road.” However, Coun. Juliette Cunningham

isn’t sure about the staff explanation. “We have numerous roads that could be challenged the same way (considered local) so where do we go?” she said. The proposal previously went before council, but Cunningham thought it just included sidewalks and slowing vehicles down and not preventing through traffic on 25th Street. “I didn’t realize we were looking at this,” she said. If the changes occur,

Fire causes damage at Lumby business Jennifer Smith Morning Star Staff

Lumby firefighters worked through the night to keep an industrial machine shop fire at bay Sunday evening. Crews were called out to a Shuswap Avenue blaze shortly after 9:30 p.m. “It was fairly extensive,” said fire chief Tony Clayton of the damage. “But it had the potential to be a $3 million fire because the owner had some expensive logging equipment. “It could have been a lot worse.” No one was inside the shop at the time and the cause remains under investigation. “The integrity of the ceiling was a concern,” said investigator Lawrie Skolrood. “Every time we moved, we were con-

cerned it would come down.” The ceiling has been removed and Skolrood was back on scene

Tuesday. Two trucks and 11 firefighters attended the blaze, which kept them away from their

beds until early Monday morning. “We finally got wrapped up around 2:30 a.m.,” said Clayton.

Watson believes 25th Street will be desirable walking and cycling route for Harwood and Beairsto elementary students. Sixty-six per cent of the residents within the specific area must

approve of the removal of the through and left-

turn movements at the three intersections.

It was a hot summer night on the last day in July and a blue moon (literally). It was also the night my amazing husband and I wed. Having only moved to Vernon a few short months before, we hosted our wedding in the back yard of what is still our home. With a 5 month old baby boy (we got the order a little wrong but it has turned out okay :) ) we didn’t have either time or money for a lavish wedding and honeymoon so instead we spent our first night away from our little one at the Vernon Lodge. After a decadent room service breakfast and refreshing swim in the garden surrounded pool my hubby offered up his wedding present to me ... skydiving!! It was almost a short marriage indeed, but that is a different story. Fast forward to July 2013, when we celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary with a stay in one of the Lodge’s amazing corporate rooms overlooking the pool and had likely the best meal we have had here in Vernon at the BX Creek Bar & Grill. It was great to get away from our now 4 kids (!!) for a night and reminisce about our first stay. Thanks Vernon Lodge for the memories, looking forward to many more.

Knee Arthritis and Knee Injuries Successfully Treated by Shockwave Therapy

W

hether you are an athlete, in your golden years of retirement, or the typical person on your feet all day at work, you know there’s nothing more debilitating than a knee injury. Knee injuries have many faces and causes and these three groups of people are susceptible to the same injuries but from different causes. Tendon injuries are the most common: Iliotibial band syndrome (pain on the outside of the knee); Patellar tendonitis (pain below the knee); and hamstring injuries (leading to pain in the back of the knee). As well, arthritis plagues many and often results in knee replacement surgery. And unfortunately, many knee surgery patients (due to ligament or cartilage tears) frequent our office.

tendon, binding the knee and often creating soft tissue pain. For the past five years I have been using Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) to treat these conditions, because shockwave therapy breaks down scar tissue and stimulates blood vessel growth to restore muscle function and promote healing. The Journal of Surgical Research 2012 showed ESWT is effective in preventing knee arthritis. In The American Journal Of Sports Medicine 2007, 90% showed significant improvement in patellar tendonitis. Furthermore, The Archives of Orthopedic Trauma Surgery 2007 showed significant reduction in the progression of knee arthritis (ESWT stimulates cells to produce cartilage). Results are often experienced within a couple of visits and the treatment is covered by many insurance companies.

The race to replace MP Colin Mayes has officially started. Mel Arnold, a Salmon Arm businessman, has announced his intention to seek the nomination for the Conservatives in OkanaganShuswap. With the news that Mayes won’t seek re-election in 2015, Arnold says the encouragement from his family, friends and associates to seek the Mel Arnold nomination “has been overwhelming.” Arnold has operated Complete Marine for 25 years. He is a past-president of the B.C. Wildlife

Federation and current chairperson of the Canadian Wildlife Federation’s governance committee. Arnold has also played a role in Rotary and the Salmon Arm Chamber of Commerce, and he is Shuswap Pro Development Association president. “My background in business and managing large organizations has helped me develop a deep respect for fiscal responsibility and efficient governance – core pillars of the Conservative Party of Canada,” he said. “There are a wide range of issues across the riding, ranging from highway improvements to economic development and job creation that will be foremost in my efforts for the people of the riding when I win the nomination.” The Conservatives have not established a process yet to select a candidate, but the party may try and have an individual in place by this fall.

Automobile use still dominates Trampoline richard rolke

Morning Star Staff

Vernon taxpayers have made a considerable investment in transit and bicycle paths, but vehicles aren’t being abandoned. The latest household travel survey shows the number of drivers in Vernon has gone from 69.4 per cent in 2007 to 70 per cent in 2013, while transit, school bus, walking, cycling and other forms of transportation have gone from 13.2 to 13.8 per cent. “The assumption was an increasing in walking and cycling would lead to a decrease in automobile traffic but that’s not happening,” said Coun. Catherine Lord. “If it stays at 70 per cent and growth rate remains the same, we will have to look at something else (for long-term traffic flow) and that could be a bypass.” However, not everyone is pessimistic about

A survey shows transit use is up slightly in Vernon but most residents still rely on private vehicles. the survey results. “I have seen more people cycling and riding the bus,” said Coun. Juliette Cunningham. “Investments don’t always translate into huge things, but incremental changes add up.” It’s believed the rise in alternate transportation modes is related to fewer vehicle passengers. The survey shows 16.2 per cent of people were vehicle passengers

in 2013, down from 17.4 per cent in 2007. There were 133,000 total trips in a typical 24-hour fall day in Vernon, up 12.6 per cent from 2007. “The increase is more than the increase of the population rate which was 4.7 per cent,” said Clark Lim, with Acuere Consulting, which conducted the survey. Seventy per cent of the vehicle trips were

less than five kilometres in length. “That’s within distance for walking and cycling so there are opportunities to increase active transportation,” said Lim. “It’s a very walkable city and there’s a great downtown core. You can get many places without the automobile.” City officials will now use the survey results to analyze trip patterns, greenhouse gas emissions, set future targets and update traffic growth models.

The recent Kingfisher landslide is creating challenges for boaters downstream. The slide that brought trees and debris down Cooke Creek May 2 has made its way through the Shuswap River water course and has deposited items into Mara Lake. “The deposit of tree limbs and slide debris into Mara Lake poses a potential hazard for boaters and lake users,”

states a release from the ColumbiaShuswap Regional District’s Shuswap Emergency Program. “The program would like to stress to all lake users and boaters to be aware of the increase of debris hazards. Logs that are floating in the water have a low-profile and are very hard to see with a slight bit of chop. Boaters are urged to slow down and be aware of their surroundings especially during inclement weather.”

In a pickle (jar)

wonder if anyone at Multi-Material B.C. looked at a map when they were developing the new recycling model? I ask that question because when the provincially mandated initiative begins May 19, depots will be established so residents can get rid of glass bottles, plastic foam packaging and plastic bags and overwrap (they won’t be accepted in the curbside blue boxes). For the North Okanagan, only two drop-off sites have been identified and they are both in Vernon (Venture Training and Interior Freight). While the former Regional District of North Okanagan program had dropoff locations for glass throughout the region, MMBC appears to be unaware that places like Armstrong, Enderby and Lumby exist. The expectation must be that residents from those communities will load up their glass and Richard Rolke plastic and simply head into Vernon to get rid of them. However, consider that not everyone from Enderby, Lumby and Armstrong comes into Vernon on a regular basis, and if they do, it may be for shopping at night when the two depots will be closed. Also, there are residents who don’t have vehicles and rely on transit so lugging a box of jars on the bus isn’t practical. Even under the existing RDNO program with drop-offs across the region, most residents have a stock-pile of jars in sheds, garages or cupboards waiting to be disposed of. What’s going to happen when there are even fewer opportunities to get rid of them in the North Okanagan? The answer, most likely, is those pickle and jam jars, as well as plastic bags, overwrap and plastic foam packaging, will be discarded into the trash because it will be far more convenient

than driving all over heck’s half acre. Of course there is another option and that is to take them to the local landfills, where the regional district will continue to accept glass bottles and jars. However, if most residents are anything like me, they only go to the dump a couple of times a year when the shed has become clogged with junk or bags of rotting leaves dot the yard like a relay course. Given the nature of the business, landfills are located in out-of-the-way places and not right downtown so just popping in is rather difficult, especially if you live in Enderby because the closest landfill is in Spallumcheen. And for anyone familiar with the Greater Vernon landfill, you will know what it’s like to try and get back on to Highway 97 as vehicles pass you at the speed of light. No one will risk their life to get rid of an empty relish jar. MMBC has made a lot out of the fact that the new industry-led recycling program will be more effective than the old regional district model and the list of items that can be recycled will grow. However, that argument is extremely flawed when you consider that plastic bags and overwrap can no longer just be left at the curb. Also, the former RDNO program had drop-off sites at businesses in Enderby and Armstrong, as well as two in Vernon. MMBC is only offering two in total, both within Vernon. What is bound to happen is many residents, and especially those outside of Greater Vernon, will be frustrated with the inability to get rid of glass and plastic products in an easy manner and they’ll pitch the items into the trash. Now such a move will go against bylaws that restrict what goes into landfills but black bags can hide a lot of evidence. And, ultimately, if we start to see quantities of glass bottles and plastic wrap mixed in with legitimate garbage, we will know that the MMBC experiment was a failure.

It appears the City of Vernon may have put the cart before the horse. Considerable effort went into turning the old Correale building on 39th Avenue into a new visitors information centre, including spending $292,215 on extensive renovations and landscaping so the facility is appealing to tourists. However, the original May 1 opening date has fallen by the wayside and there is no indication as to when the centre’s doors will open. The problem is the Ministry of Transportation has not signed off on the city’s rezoning process so a visitors centre is an appropriate land use there (the ministry gets involved with any development within 800 metres of a highway). City officials may have assumed the ministry would rubber stamp the rezoning, but that obviously wasn’t the case. After all, the ministry has to consider the potential impact a development may have on highway traffic. It’s also likely reviewing the city’s request for a left-turn signal at 32nd Street and 39th Avenue, and given that provincial coffers are tight, there’s no guarantee funding will be available. The other issue to consider is the wheels of bureaucracy grind slow so the expectation of a decision before May 1 was overly optimistic. Coun. Bob Spiers isn’t sure what Victoria’s ultimate decision will be. “If it (centre) ever opens. If they haven’t given approval by now, who knows. They’ve had it for a couple of months,” he said. And given the ongoing delay, the city must consider the prospect of the ministry not endorsing rezoning. Is there a plan B for tourism services?

Survey says something more

t is a rare thing for politicians to draw praise. They usually draw fire, so the recent letter to the editor praising the rural directors of Areas B and C certainly deserves attention. Directors Fleming and Macnabb received accolades for their decision not to look at the possible benefits of one municipal government for Greater Vernon. The writer, Chris Edwards, refers to study completed in 2008 that supports the area directors' action to ignore this issue. Edwards reported that incorporation was the preferred option. The possibility of another mayor and six councillors added to an already crowded political landscape sent shivers down my spine and was my motivation to obtain a copy of the study, which in fact was a mailout survey. From my experience, things are always more complicated than they first seem especially when it comes to politics. The survey was sent out by the RDNO to more than 5,000 households within the boundaries of electoral areas (B, C, D, E and F). The recipients were asked to respond by return mail to each of following two questions regarding governance. 1. Do you want to change the way your electoral area is governed, either by joining an angeLS in diSguiSe On average, most individuals who have come in contact with our local dog pound have a rather distasteful opinion. However, I am here to thank all at K-9 Dog Control. Before our border collie Gail took her journey away from home April 11, I may have had the same opinion as most, "Those darn people who lurk about trying to impound my pup." But after our experience, I feel much differently. Not once but twice in one day, we were saved from the possibility of never seeing our beautiful girl again. The second occurrence happened when a bolt of lightning and loud thunder boomed in Vernon and Gail was off with a vengeance. My daughter Jocelyn was watching her for the weekend so I could be with my mom who is battling leukemia in Vancouver. After some time, Jocelyn called the K-9 Dog Control angels and they found Gail on Hospital Hill. We live by the recreation complex so Gail had travelled a long distance in a short period of time. When I think of what could have been, my heart pains.

existing municipality or becoming a separate municipality. Yes or No. 2. If change happens, which option would you prefer? Join an existing municipality or create a new municipality? Of the 5,709 surveys that were delivered RDNO received 1,103 replies; 19 per cent. To the first question, 20 per cent responded yes and 80 per cent responded no. I will leave it to others to debate the ambiguous and dilemma-producing nature of the initial survey question. To my mind, the structure of the first question was likely to produce a negative response. Proceeding to the results of the second question, we discover that if change in gov-

ernance were to be somehow imposed, the respondents were split 49 per cent against joining an existing municipality and 51 per cent for creating a new municipality. Despite the almost even results to the second question, we do see the source of data that inspired Edwards' comment about the incorporation of electoral areas. So where does this all lead? Well for those who agree with the letter writer, it justifies the end of any consideration of governance changes here in the sunny North Okanagan, particularly when it comes to electoral areas. Well perhaps not. Remember that we know from experience that things often more

But instead, our angels in disguise not only rescued her twice that day, but only charged us once. Really people, when we change our perspective of thought, we can see the blessing in disguise. Thank you K-9 Dog Control and thank you to the anonymous person who saw Gail and made that call. We have our girl home safe and sound. Carrie O'neill

The articles dealt with economic, financial and storage problems arising from the newfangled recycling program. However, there are other issues involved which pertain to a large segment of our population, namely the senior citizens and all of those who depend on walking devices to remain ambulant. How will they be able to haul the heavy, restrictive and unwieldy boxes to the curb? How many falls, broken bones and worse will occur for the sake of a lame-brained scheme dreamt up by bureaucrats?

complicated than they appear. RDNO fortunately broke the results the down into logical groupings of EAs to illustrate some interesting variances. The variant results of most interest to residents of Greater Vernon are found in the EA grouping of B and C (Swan Lake and BX). To question one, 75 per cent were not favour of any change in governance. Results similar to the whole survey. To question two, however, which assumes a governance change: 56 per cent of who answered this question (70 per cent of respondents) preferred the option of joining an existing municipality over incorporating. The total survey results had initially masked the surprising preference to amalgamate by a small but clear majority of respondents in BX-Swan Lake to the second question in the 2008 RDNO survey. Interesting? This finding is uncomfortable for those who point to this RDNO survey and claim there is no support or interest for looking at governance in the EAs. Certainly in Areas B and C this may not be the case. Perhaps some of those 56 per cent signed a more recent survey on governance. That would make things really complicated. Shawn Lee

High snowpack fuels water levels Morning Star Staff

A large snowpack continues to bolster Greater Vernon’s prospects for sufficient water levels this summer.

According to the B.C. River Forecast Centre, the May 1 snow basin levels are at 128 per cent of normal, an increase from the 97 per cent recorded in April,

“The combined readings from Greater Vernon Water and the B.C. River Forecast Centre show a close to average year for snow pack and reservoir levels.” Due to cooler temperatures at the end of April, the B.C. River Forecast Centre notes there has been a delay

in snow melt. “The centre predicts above normal temperatures for May to July 2014 increasing the possibility of higher than normal run-off during this period,” said Miles. “Greater Vernon Water will continue to monitor climate trends and their impact on our water supplies.”

Century of Ukrainian dance, music and spirit celebrated

Morning Star Staff

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is about to present a musical theatre production in tribute to Canada’s many Ukrainian immigrants who overcame hardship to start a new life for themselves. The production, Free Land, is part of Sadok’s 15th annual Okanagan Ukrainian Festival, which takes place at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre May 25. It is based on the early immigration period of 1891 to 1914, where more than 170,000 Eastern Europeans of Ukrainian descent were invited to Canada to open up the west. The musical play explains the hardships of the early immigrants from clearing land with hand tools to surviving the cold Prairie winters, to those who faced persecution during the First World War when the War Measures Act was invoked, said Sadok’s artistic director Andrea Malysh. “This concert commemorates the centennial of Canada’s first national internment operations of 1914 to 1920,” said Malysh. “The story takes us back to a tragic time in Canada’s history but what comes next is the story of an ethnic group who flourishes in this country. Through perseverance and hard work these new immigrants carve out Canada’s breadbasket creating the Canadian Prairie landscape.” Free Land is the 22nd theatrical dance and music production choreographed by Malysh, who has 30 years experience in Ukrainian folk dance and ethnographic studies. The story behind the production goes back to Canada’s

what little wealth they had, and forced to do heavy labour in Canada’s hinterlands. They were also disenfranchised and subjected to other state sanctioned censures, not because of anything they had done, but only because of where they had come from, who they were,” she said. “Following release from work camps, Ukrainians and other Europeans were left with nothing to show for their forced labour.” Sadok will highlight the first Ukrainian immigrants to Canada who were from the region of Bukovyna near the Carpathian Mountains. “The costumes are traditional by design with our latest children’s costumes coming directly from Ukraine,” said Malysh. The newest addition to this year’s Ukrainian festival is Tsveet, an musical ensemble made up of young musicians, who will accompany Sadok to two dances, including a ladies lyrical called In the Wheatfield and the children’s circle dance, Kolomayka. After their hometown performance, Sadok will be guest performers at the cultural showcase at the Vegreville Ukrainian Pysanky Festival July 5. “This excitingly vibrant and colourful style of dance is always enjoyed by audiences of both Ukrainians and nonUkrainians alike,” said Malysh. The May 25 performance at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are now available at the Ticket Seller box office. Call 250-549-7469 or order at ticketseller.ca.

from across Europe, Asia and the U.S. Before the Royal show, Manet’s portraiture had never previously been explored in exhibition form. Through paintings of his family, friends and literary, political and artistic figures of the day, Manet gave life to his subjects and Parisian society. The Royal exhibit consisted of more than 50 works, including portraits of his most frequent sitter, his wife Suzanne Leenhoff, and luminaries of the period including Antonin Proust, Émile Zola and Stéphane Mallarmé. These portraits, along with scenes from everyday life, reveal Manet’s forward-thinking, modern approach to portraiture. Interwoven with a detailed and superbly crafted biography of Manet in 19th century Paris, host Tim Marlow and special guests examine the craft of this bold and influential artist. Manet: Portraying Life screens Saturday at 1 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults, $13 for students, and are available through the Ticket Seller box office at 250-549-SHOW (7469), or www.ticketseller.ca

tion as one of the most significant Spanish composers of the 20th century. And finally, the ensemble performed the traditional Sakura, Sakura (Cherry Blossom) – their recording of which inspired Thomson to book them. The highlight of the evening was Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto by Chen Gang and He Xhan Hao, played by Canadian violinist Yi-Jia Susanne Hou. Hou’s parents were both violinists in Shanghai, and she took her first standing ovation at the age of five. Raised in Mississauga, she’s had a glittering career after training at the Juilliard. The concerto has

two incredible stories attached. Based on a Chinese tale in the style of Romeo and Juliet, the tragic lovers die, to be replaced by two golden butterflies. But Hou’s real story is equally dramatic. Her father, a celebrated soloist in China, was scheduled to premiere the piece, but when it was banned during the Cultural Revolution, he was jailed and forced to confess his wrongful action. After the revolution, when asked by the Chinese government to perform it, he declined because he was waiting to emigrate to Canada. He’s never performed the piece in China, and now, for the first time, he heard his daughter play it just three days before her Vernon concert. The usual three movements were played without a break, and contrasted simple pastoral themes with dramatic story interludes. The solo violin was outspoken and challenging – depicting the passion

In the concert’s second half, the Yamabiko Taiko drummers played a single unaccompanied piece, remarkable for the musicians’ athletic choreography. The drummers also accompanied the orchestra for the last piece of the evening, Rhapsody for Orchestra by Yuzo Toyama, an exhilarating blend of Eastern and Western music, and truly ending the OSO’s season with a bang.

n Sunday, Okanagan Symphony’s musical director Rosemary Thomson pulled out all the stops for the season’s closing concert, in celebration of Asian Heritage month. In addition to several crossover pieces in the Western-Asian tradition, we heard classical pieces from China and Japan, with Japanese harp and flute by Ensemble Liberta, and Kelowna’s Yamabiko Taiko Drummers. The Japanese harp (koto) is the national instrument of Japan. The body is said to resemble that of a dragon, and has also been described as “a zither with bridges.” Played horizontally, it has up to 25 strings, using movable bridges to vary the pitch of each string. On Sunday, Ensemble Liberta’s Kazuko Takeda used two of these. Joined by bamboo flute player Tenzan Yamada, with double bass and keyboard providing a rich but gentle continuo background, they played two pieces with the orchestra, one of which was a koto rendition of Air on a G String from Bach’s Orchestral Suite No 3 in D. On their own, the ensemble played their adaptation of Concierto de Aranjuez, written for classical guitar and orchestra by the Spanish composer Joaquín Rodrigo. By far his best-known work, its success established his reputa-

Book fundraiser is expanding Sale of new and used books benefits Special Olympics BCVernon Morning Star Staff

Love reading, enjoying a variety of books and can’t get enough? The Book Warehouse in the Alpine Centre on Kalamalka Lake Road is the place to go for good quality used and new books at the lowest price in town. To book lovers it is known as the best kept secret to buy books and at the same time supporting local Special Olympics athletes. “We have thousands of used books in great shape, a large section of new books, soft and hardcover, from fiction to children’s books, ranging in price from 15 cents to $2,” said Lesley Hayes the newly appointed Book Warehouse coordinator. “And 100 per cent of the proceeds go to our local Special Olympics charity.” The Warehouse is open every Wednesday and Saturday from 9 a.m. until noon and is very well organized due to a group of dedicated volunteers.

Book Warehouse coordinator Lesley Hayes (second from left) and volunteers Pat, Sue, Yvonne and Calvin take a moment while sorting through the thousands of books at the warehouse on Kalamalka Lake Road. “This is an amazing place with knowledgeable volunteers who will try and find any book you ask for, the selection is huge,” said Britta Gretzmacher, a member of the SOBCVernon board “Thanks to John Topping, our longtime fundraiser and Book Warehouse Coordinator who recently stepped down, announcing his retirement from Special

Olympics Vernon, the warehouse is in great shape and they were able to extend the variety of books and opening hours.” Special Olympics BCVernon provides sports programs for individuals of all ages with intellectual disabilities. The society strives to enrich lives, and celebrates personal achievement through

positive sport experiences. Without government funding, this charity depends on local fundraising events, sponsorships and donations. Donations of books are always welcome and more volunteers are needed to sort, sell and pick up books. For information on how to donate books or volunteer, please contact Hayes at 250-275-2676.

ooks like we’re in for some fantastic weather. After all the rain we had, the lawns are green everywhere and need cutting more often. I see a lot of grass clippings on the side of the road for garbage day. If the grass is cut once a week, it is sound practice to leave the clippings right on the lawn so that they may become natural humus as they would under field conditions. Sometimes the growth is heavy or rain prevents regular cutting, so that leaving a heavy crop of clippings would Jocelyne Sewell lead to wads of yellow hay covering parts of the lawn. In that case, bag it or rake the material up and add it to the compost heap as part of the green matter. Don’t remove all grass clippings. Some can and should be left as occasional replenishment for the lawn itself. Dried green grass has nitrogen, phosphorous and potash content. Grass clippings can play an important role in soil improvement. As a rich source of nitrogen, the clippings should be uti-

A GArdener’s diAry

lized to the utmost. There are three excellent ways in which they can be put to work in the garden and flower beds. They may be used as a mulch, they may be turned in as green manure and they may be used in the compost heap to create the heat necessary for good decomposition. As a mulch, lawn clippings surpass most materials. They are easy to handle, will remain in place nicely, will fit in the smallest spaces with no trouble, and when dried, will give your rows and beds a neat appearance. Of course you will not have enough mulch for your entire garden from the first cutting, but mulch as much as you can each week. Because they are so finely chopped, the clippings disappear completely into the soil by fall. Green mulch may temporarily rob the soil of available nitrogen, including both ammonia and nitrates. But this condition is so short-lived that it will not stunt the rapid growth of the plants. Late in the season, you may have a surplus of grass clippings on your hands. If you have empty space in the garden, scatter a few inches of green clippings over the entire area. Turn these in immediately as green manure along with the previously applied mulch. Work

a small plot at a time, depending upon the amount of excess clippings on hand. Later, you may remulch the entire area and allow it to remain until the following spring. When used as green manure, grass clippings greatly improve the physical condition of heavy-textured soils. They also provide much-needed humus and nitrogen. A third use of grass clippings is to incorporate them into the compost pile to give necessary heat for proper decomposition. This was taken from The Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening. If you are using grass clippings in your garden, make sure that they are not sprayed with pesticides and insecticides. In the spring, I cannot wait for the first mowing to go in the compost that has been sitting there all winter doing nothing. With some of the shredded leaves added and mixed with the old compost, I usually have my pile heating up within a couple of days to more than 135 F. Don’t leave a pile of clippings on the ground unless you spread it to dry. A pile will heat up in no time and will be smelly and slimy. Organic grass clippings should never go to the landfill as they are too valuable. For more information: 250-558-4556.

Local asparagus shines

he first long weekend of the warm season approaches. Victoria Day celebrates Queen Victoria’s birthday which is on the 24th. It is the first popular weekend for spring/summer travel. Lots of people open up their cottages or go camping; others plant gardens, enjoy barbecuing again, or just get away. For many in the Okanagan, it’s the first time for jumping in the lake and for getting the first really bad sunburn of the season. If you’ll be entertaining this weekend I have two easy, inseason recipes you may like to try. The first is a unique take on lasagna and is perfect as our local asparagus season is well under way. Using canned soup saves time in making a sauce and a blend of cheeses combines with the chicken and asparagus to make a delicious, rich, flavourful dish that will make any meal feel like a special occasion. It’s a perfect

make-ahead dish for any long weekend. Today’s salad recipe is a true celebration of spring. Fresh asparagus in season tastes even better raw than cooked as it’s full of flavour, colour and juice. Shave the stalks as thin as you can and mix a few simple salad ingredients and a creamy avocado dressing, and you have a very special treat. An added note: today is a significant birthday for my sister Colleen and I’d like to wish her a very happy birthday. Asparagus and Chicken Lasagna 1 tbsp. olive oil 1 clove garlic, minced 1 tsp. each chopped fresh thyme and finely grated lemon rind 1 can (284 mL)

condensed cream of asparagus soup 1/2 cup 1% milk 1 lb. (500 g) asparagus, trimmed and cut in small pieces 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts; grilled to just done, thinly sliced 1 pkg. (250 g) drypressed cottage cheese 8 sheets fresh lasagna noodles (or prepare according to pkg. instructions) 1/2 cup shredded Italian 4-cheese mix In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, thyme and lemon rind for 30 seconds. Stir in condensed soup, milk, asparagus and chicken; cook until asparagus is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in cottage cheese. Spread 1/4 cup of mixture in 8-inch (2 L) square oven-proof baking dish. Place 1 layer lasagna noodles, cut to fit, on top; Spread with one-third of the asparagus mixture. Repeat twice. Sprinkle with four-cheese mixture and cover with foil; bake in 425 F oven for 30 minutes. Uncover

and bake for 5 minutes. Tip: Spray foil with vegetable oil to prevent cheese from sticking to foil. Ribboned Asparagus Salad with Avocado Dressing 1-1/4 lbs asparagus 1 cucumber 16 cherry tomatoes 3/4 cup flat-leaf parsley 1/4 cup parmesan, freshly grated For the dressing 3 tbsp. olive oil 3 tbsp. lemon juice, freshly squeezed ½ ripe avocado, stone removed Salt and black pepper, to taste Wash and dry asparagus well. Snap off the tough ends of the asparagus. Using vegetable peeler and starting from bottom end of asparagus, shave upwards to create thin ribbons. Place all ribbons in large serving bowl. Slice the cucumber lengthways and cut into bite-size pieces. Cut the tomatoes in half and coarsely chop the parsley. Add these to the bowl.

T

he 25th Street Traffic Management Public Consultation takes place tonight, Wednesday, May 14, from 6 to 8 p.m. at Vernon Alliance Church, Arbour Room, 2601-43rd St. Please use the 27th Street entrance. The 2008 Transportation Plan identified 25th Street as a future bike route with sidewalks to be installed on the west side from Pleasant Valley Road to 46th Avenue. Concerns have been raised that vehicles are using 25th Street to avoid using 27th Street, which is a major arterial road designed for its main purpose of moving traffic across the city centre; 25th Street is a local road and its main purpose is to provide access to the residential properties on that street. The request has been made to have 25th Street returned back to its intended residential nature.

Campaign fighting diabetes Morning Star Staff

The Canadian Diabetes Association will be hitting the streets with a door to door campaign until May 31. Today, 9 million people in Canada are challenged with diabetes and an estimated 250 million people are affected globally. “Most people don’t realize that it is the world’s fourth

leading cause of death,” states a release. “In North America, an estimated one in three children born in 2000 or later will develop diabetes in their lifetime. Our mission is to lead the fight against diabetes by helping people with diabetes live healthy lives while we work to find a cure.” The funds from the cam-

paign will be used to provide residents with educational resources, research and advocacy. Proceeds will additionally be used to help send children with type one diabetes to the Canadian Diabetes Association’s D-Camp. For more information contact 1-888-628-9494 or cheryl. stone@diabetes.ca.

Gala raises $23,700 Morning Star Staff

A gala celebration will enhance health care. The fifth annual JCI Hospital Gala raised $23,700 for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Building a Tower of Care Campaign, Phase II. “We are very thankful for the amazing community support we have received for the gala,” said Nicola Dent, gala co-chairperson. “Without our many sponsors, committee members and volunteers this night just could not have happened.” Co-chairperson Sandra Simao acknowl-

edges the long-standing partnership between JCI and VJHF. “Thank you to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation for all of the support and confidence placed in us as a chapter over the years. Our relationship is one that we sincerely cherish in this community,” she said. Since 2002, JCI Vernon has raised $272,894 for the foundation. “We appreciate the enthusiasm and dedication from JCI in supporting our hospital’s needs. The hard work they do each year for the foundation is to be applauded,” said

Library hosts reopening Morning Star Staff

The public is invited to the grand reopening of the Vernon branch of Okanagan Regional Library. A celebration is being held Saturday to mark the end of restoration work after a flood damaged much of the main floor. “Everyone is invited to come down and join the festivities,” said Michele Rule, with ORL. The event will include story time at 10:30 a.m., the announcement of the winners of the Big Orange Story Tent and adult short story and poetry contests at 11 a.m., and a ribbon cutting at noon. “Refreshments will follow thanks to the Vernon Friends of the Library,” said Rule.

Gerry M. Laarakker, Lawyer

Q: A:

What’s the new law about Common Law Marriages in BC? Recent legislation in British Columbia has codified just what a common law marriage is and what the ramifications of living in common law are.

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

Call us for a free, no-obligation appointment! 250-260-4273 Unit #1 4205 27th Street, Vernon

Richard Finn, VJHF vice-president. VJHF is currently raising $2.5 million to equip the sixth and seventh floors of the Polson Tower.

ommendation, and replaced it with the township recommending RDNO support. “If you go down Baker Hogg Road (in electoral area), you turn right to go down Greenhow Road, which is in the township, to go on to Highway 97A,” said Fraser. “If you live on the border, we’re going to be using each other’s roads.” While voting in favour of the recommendation, Coun. Todd York worried the township may appear confrontational. “I don’t want this to come across as fir-

ing a shot over someone’s bow over being displeased over what they’re putting in their OCP,” said York. “We’re almost arguing over something that’s neither ours nor theirs, and I worry it comes across as confrontational when it doesn’t need to be at this time.” Coun. Joe Van Tienhoven didn’t take Fraser’s motion as confrontational, just clearing up some issues over talk that Spallumcheen will have a future major development in its southeast sector, which borders the electoral areas.

Glass collection sites limited Morning Star Staff

The public is advised that the Regional District of North Okanagan is removing glass collection bins May 27. The bins will be removed from the Enderby Bottle Depot,

Armstrong Bottle Depot and Chasers Bottle Depot in Vernon. RDNO will continue to accept glass bottles and jars at each of its landfills and transfer stations. Under the new Multi Material B.C. program, glass can be

dropped off at Interior Freight and Bottle Depot and Venture Training Centre, both in Vernon. For more information about the new MMBC recycling programs go to www.recyclinginbc. ca.

“I think it clarifies that we’re not going to put in a whole new road for a few new editions

to that area,” he said. “If that area was being fully developed, of course we’d put in

our own roads.. This just clarifies that there won’t be a big development for awhile.”

“I look at Northern Gateway and see a project that will build families and communities for generations. That’s what I’m most proud of.” - Catherine Pennington, Senior Manager, Community Benefits & Sustainability

Meet the expert:

We at Northern Gateway are committed to ensuring that jobs and business opportunities will be available to people living near the Project’s right-of-way.

IT ALL ADDS UP TO COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT In Catherine’s experience, removing barriers to employment has a huge impact – not just on individual job seekers, but on their communities as well. When you connect someone to a job, you also build individual and social pride, enhanced connections, dignity and ultimately, stronger sustainable communities. “As a trained social worker with experience in community development, I have found it very rewarding to work in Industry. You have the opportunity to create really meaningful outcomes that are mutually beneficial. Our model of shared responsibility for working with communities is unique and is being emulated by other companies.”

DEDICATED TO MEANINGFUL ABORIGINAL INCLUSION Catherine connects willing job seekers with existing and emerging opportunities. She is focused on helping the Project meet its goal of having Aboriginal people comprise 15 per cent of the construction workforce. “Many Northern communities are experiencing or have experienced desperate cycles of poverty, in part due to a lack of the necessary skills for the existing employment opportunities. I believe people in Northern and North Western B.C. have yet to fully realize their enormous potential. By actively investing in better education and skills training, opportunities for advancement and connections to good, steady jobs, we know we can make a real difference.”

SUCCESS ACROSS THE NORTH We have held discussions with numerous training providers, colleges, universities and employment service providers in Northern B.C. to identify programming needs to help Aboriginal and local people take advantage of the surge in energy projects in the region. We have also worked to tailor programming to the needs of individual communities. “Fundamentally, there’s nothing more powerful than helping someone make that connection to employment, because it leads to a larger, more positive and healthier social outcome.” As a company and a neighbour, we want to see Northern residents get the best opportunities because that benefits us all. It’s how we will build more than a safer, better pipeline, we will help build a better B.C.

for the month of May.

As Bike to Work Week (May 25 to June 1) approaches, the City of Vernon has been supporting new team leaders who are taking part in the program that helps encourage alternate, more active methods of transportation. Kirbey Lockhart is one of the new team leaders and shared some of the reasons why he is participating in Bike to Work Week. “It takes me about six to eight minutes to drive to work and 11 minutes to cycle with about 15 minutes to ride home,” said Lockhart. “Pedaling allows me to unwind from the day’s tension.” Lockhart said he bikes to work in the morning from Middleton Mountain to get his “Zen moment” in Polson Park, as he pedals along the boardwalk through the park to his destination at RBC Dominion Securities. With rising fuel costs, Lockhart decided to buy a Canadianmade electric assist bicycle and plans to ride 100 days this year. Lockhart is now challenging his coworkers to sign up and participate in Bike to Work Week. “There is one less car on the road, and this is another way to improve my health and the community’s,” he added. A long w it h Lockhart’s co-captain, 29 other Bike to Work team leaders attended a workshop at Vernon city hall last to prepare for the event. Teams or individual cyclists can still register online at www. biketowork.ca/northokanagan, and all registered Vernon and North Okanagan team leaders can pick up a free T-shirt and promo pack at the Community Services Building (3001 32nd Ave.) from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information, call 250-550-3634 or e-mail csbreception@vernon.ca.

Sparrow on RBC gold hunt Vipers hold off Yorkton to even national tourney record after two games KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Play his final six games as a Vernon Viper and head to Alaska for college hockey with a Royal Bank Cup ring on his finger. It’s a mid-May bucket list that forward Colton Sparrow, the heart and soul of the Vipers, is determined to pull off. The 20-year-old winger, a work of art on the art of work, scored three times and used his unique shotblocking style on several clutch penalty kills as the Vipers built up a 5-0 lead and hung on for a 6-4 win over the Yorkton Terriers in Royal Bank Cup preliminary action Monday night before 2,500 noisy fans at Kal Tire Place. Sparrow was a rock star on the penalty kill and finished his checks all over the rink as the Vipers improved to 1-1 in the five-team national Junior A hockey championships.

Yorkton dropped to 0-2 and battle the Carleton Place Canadians of Ottawa this afternoon. “It’s my hometown and also getting a crack at this LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR tournament three, four years back, and coming short, it still to this day, stings,” said Sparrow, named Game Michael McNicholas of the Vernon Vipers stretches for the puck against defenceman Devon McMullen of the Yorkton Terriers in Royal Bank MVP in Vernon’s opening 3-2 loss Saturday to the Cup action Monday night at Kal Tire Place.

With Medves on the bench for a sixth attacker and the Terriers pressing, Sparrow took the puck to the Yorkton blueline, used a gorgeous toe drag to elude defenceman Devon McMullen along the boards, skated in and deposited the insurance tally. “Our energy kind of got snuffed out,” said Sparrow, on the third-period collapse. “We have to get better at closing games out. They got one and we started to panic. They got two and things were kind of hairy on the bench. We kind of got our composure back for a few shifts and got it done.” Williamson said panic mode set in again when the Terriers got within three. “It’s tough because our group’s been reeling. They’ve lost five in a row if you go back to that Coquitlam series, and I think that panic set in again. ‘Oh, no, here it comes again.’ But we hung on and we won and there are things to learn and positives to take from it. Get on the back of Colton Sparrow, obviously.” Yorkton head coach Trent Cassan will take an encouraging third period and use it for motivation as the Terriers, who struggled out of the gate at the Western Canada Cup before winning the title last week in Dauphin, meet the Canadians in a Wednesday matinee. “It was a real good push-back by our guys and we didn’t quit. You just can’t put yourself in a situation like that against the teams that are here and expect to come back from five.

United U14s bounce Blaze Morning Star Staff

Vernon United bounced the host Kamloops Blaze 4-1 for their first Thompson Okanagan Under 14 Boys Soccer League win Sunday at Hillside Stadium. Inspired by new head coach Yogi Kongsdorf, United dominated early and got a goal from hard-working Jarrod Latta in the fifth minute. Vernon kept pressing and scored another goal, a header by Perez Vermeulen off a gorgeous free kick deep in the Kamloops zone by Xander Sladen. The second half had Vernon coming back fired up and still in control, giving up an unlucky goal by Kamloops before rallying with two more goals. Latta made it 3-1, while Ben Purvis completed the offence with a seeing-eye, lazerbeam. “The boys all looked strong and worked well as a team with our defence running miles,” said Kongsdorf, who takes his crew to the Kamloops Slurpee Cup this weekend. Ian Oliphant stood strong in goal as United improved to 1-5. In U13 boys action, Kamloops edged visiting Vernon 2-1 Sunday at Valleyview Centennial Park. The Blaze opened the scoring at seven minutes. The teams applied equal pressure at both ends and a corner by Cole Johnson to Nick Purvis almost worked for United just before the half.

United received bold defence by Ty Ogasawara and Jaidyn Gordon-Mason and plenty of offensive chances from Lee Christensen, Noah Podolski, Johnson and Purvis. Keeper Jared Jameson was stellar in the first half. Some sweet passes and moves by Kristian Newell, Bryce Tkachuk and Jacob Baycroft jumpstarted Vernon in the second half. Johnson’s free kick went just over the net 11 minutes into the half, but he buried a shot four minutes later. Kamloops netted the winner a minute later. Hunter Housego, Christopher McIntosh, Zack Laranjo and Baycroft set up some nice plays deep in the Blaze sone, while Shaun Boucher was strong on the back line. Johnson’s corner went to Purvis, who held the ball before being checked. Vernon defender Joseph Neufeld recovered the ball and chipped it over several players but it was saved by the Kamloops keeper. Podolski recorded a great save in the final minutes. Vernon is 1-3-1. Rolf Hirschkorn’s United U15s drew 2-2 with Kamloops Sunday in Valleyview. Vernon was awarded a free kick just inside the Kamloops half at 10 minutes. Peter Hirschkorn’s shot was bobbled by the keeper and Gavin Mason was Johnny on the spot and put the loose ball home. Kamloops pressed hard but their only quality opportunity was parried away nicely by Harvey Pawsey.

Kamloops looped a high ball that was misjudged and found its way into the back of the net at 22 minutes. Vernon came out with more resolve and pressed the play in the second half of a scrappy game with a number of fouls and three yellow cards. In the 60th minute, Joshua Gray struck the ball low and hard under the jumping Kamloops wall allowing the ball to go clear through into the near post. With 10 minutes remaining, Kamloops forced for the equalizer which they got off a corner that was poorly defended in the box. Things almost got worse a minute later when a penalty was given for a hand ball. The attempt missed high. United U12 #1 boys swept a pair of Kamloops teams 5-0 and 9-0 at Kings Park in Penticton.

Hassard rocks Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks overcame another slow start as they doubled the South Okanagan Flames 10-5 in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League action Sunday afternoon at Memorial Arena in Penticton. “We took them for granted, we are having trouble with our starts right now,” said Shamrocks’ coach Brett Logan. The Flames (1-0-3) lost 15-6 to the Kamloops Venom Saturday night. The Flames led 3-2 after the first off Connor Walton’s two goals. “We had some guys come out and it looked like they were working on different things,” said Logan. “We realized in the first intermission that we needed to pull up our socks.” Armstrong (3-0-2) hasn’t been operating with a full roster and was dealt a serious blow in the second period. Colby Erickson slammed a Flame into the boards in the restricted area by the bench. The hit resulted in a game misconduct and a three-game suspension. “Colby was doing what he has been taught.

Colby was just a little too close and too strong. He is such a strong guy, any other kid it would have been an interference penalty,” said Logan. Despite the infraction, the Rocks rallied for five goals, leading 7-5 after two. Drew Hassard carried the Shamrocks with four goals in the final 40 minutes and finished with ROGER KNOX/MORNING STAR five. “Our second North Okanagan Legends’ forward Devin Jameson (left) looks to make a pass and third periods while being hounded by Kamloops Rattlers’ defender Thomas Kenzie in Thompson were much better.

United U12 #2 boys split their games, edging the Penticton Pinnacles 3-2 before bowing 5-0 to Kelowna United Black. Liam Glennon finished off a great feed from Keegan Carmichael at five minutes in the victory. The Pinnacles tied it quickly before Ben Lesyk converted a great ball from Luke Jones before the break. Liam Reid provided a great ball to Glennon to put the lads up 3-1 early in the final half. Penticton rallied late to close the gap, but Tysen Fairweather, Dawson Martian and Ben Morgan were dynamic to close them down. The boys came out very flat in the second game and fell behind 3-0 at the half. Both Vernon teams are in the Slurpee Cup. United U12 #1 girls ran to a 1-1 draw with Kelowna White Sunday at Marshall Field #1. “The girls are really embracing the idea of passing and showing for the ball which leads to more ball control,” said head coach Mike Bertram. “They had the majority of the play and chances in this game. Anne Cherkowski and Tori Hauptman did an excellent job of controlling the midfield, creating lots of chances. “Taylor Francks did a good job of showing for the ball on the forward line and attacking the net.” Kelowna scored first off a long shot that squeezed by keeper Kenzie Koshure. Vernon equalized when Emma Lockwood intercepted a ball and slipped it into the corner of the net. Sarah Troidl showed some good individual moves and was tireless in the midfield. Defenders Callie Bertam, Emma Eggert and Sarah Beka nicely slowed down the Kelowna attack. Beka and Lockwood were sharp in splitting secondhalf goalie duties.

Dave Dawson’s cross was booted in for an own goal in the 42nd minute. Paul Morgan made it 2-0 after taking a throw-in by Rick Raber. The Humpbacks (2-2-1) added insurance at 65 minutes when Raber buried a cross by Red Robin

Rookie Duane Dennis supplied four goals as the Big O Tire-Turn-Key Controls Ogopogos ambushed Rutland Spirit 6-0 at Parkinson #19. Parm Kler, returning from running the Vancouver Marathon, scored on a brilliantly-placed 30-yard free kick, while John Garner also converted as the Ogopogos improved to 2-3.

Marrs’ deuce halts Kal Tire winning streak Morning Star Staff

Alves Brothers stopped Kal Tire FC’s winning streak at four with a 4-2 Kelowna Men’s 35+ Soccer League victory Monday night in Rutland. Geoff Straight found open space and finished with a beauty shot for a 1-0 Tiremen lead. Alves Bros. responded when left winger Kyle Bilinski broke through on a free kick and beat a defender to get a clear shot which Kal Tire keeper Chris Bader had no chance on. Bader was The Branding Iron Pub Man of the Match. Kal Tire went up 2-1 when Tim Mcgowan took a free kick and hit the low corner with a beautiful curling ball around the wall. Alves came back hard and Morgan Marrs scored their next two. He got a rebound and then one-timed a cross with a

Bridge by Phillip Alder TO REPEAT A FINESSE, WHICH CARD TO LEAD? Rex Stout, an author of detective fiction whose most famous character is Nero Wolfe, said, “To read of a detective’s daring finesse or ingenious stratagem is a rare joy.” Bridge players sometimes take a daring finesse that involves an ingenious stratagem. The finesse in today’s deal isn’t daring, though. The key point is how to take that finesse. South is in three no-trump. West leads the spade queen. How should South plan the play? If you and your partner use two no-trump as a transfer response, responder must start with two clubs and rebid two no-trump to invite game.

South starts with six top tricks: four hearts, one diamond and one club. The spade lead is annoying, but South must cover with dummy’s king and hope for the best. Here, East wins with his ace and returns a spade, and the defenders collect the first four tricks. Declarer discards two diamonds from the board, but what does he throw from his hand? South must realize that if the club finesse is losing, he is going down. But if it is winning, he can take four hearts, one diamond and four clubs. So, although it risks several undertricks, declarer must ditch his diamond queen. Let’s assume West shifts to the diamond jack. South wins with his ace and plays a heart to the ace. He is in

the dummy for the only time and might need to take the club finesse three times. The normal strategy is first to lead the lowest card that can hold the trick, assuming the finesse is winning. Declarer must run the club nine. Then he finesses the club queen, plays a club to his jack, and claims.

Milenko Michael Birkich

Joe will be lovingly remembered by his wife, Kathleen, to whom he was married for 56 years; three sons; seven grandchildren; four greatgrandchildren; and his canine best friend, Pepper. /n respecƟng Joe͛s wishes, he was cremated and a private family gathering was held to celebrate his life. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donaƟons in memory of Joe to the Vernon SPCA, 4800 Haney Road, Vernon, B.C. V1H 1P6.

Michael was a “Jack of all Trades”. He would meet any challenge bestowed upon him and where most would give up, he would succeed because of his paƟence. zou never had to fear or worry about anything when Michael was around, no maƩer the circumstance. It was like having an angel by your side. Throughout his whole life, both in Calgary and in Falkland, his commitment to family, to people who became dear friends, to work and to the farm, cannot be measured in the simplest of terms. People who knew him loved him, because Michael was a quiet, humble, honest and simple man. He respected life and nature to the point he would not put anything to waste. The saying “One man’s junk is another man’s treasure”… holds so very true when it came to Michael. There was always a use for something. He was a philosopher of sorts. He would tell young and old “think what you do, don’t do what you think”…”buy what you need and not what you want” and when someone was at their wits end…he would say “be calm, cool and collecƟve…hmmmmm”. There were other messages but these are best to be leŌ between Michael and to the people he relayed them to. The only one thing we could not get him to do is change his response to how his day was. It was always 50/50! We would tease and say why not 70/30 but it was always 50/50. As Michael knew how precious life was and one who never took advantage of it, especially when life had its Ɵmes of trial and tribulaƟons, 50/50 was probably the best way to respond. He touched so many hearts and now the world will be one less true teacher of kindness, paƟence and love. The powers that be decided to take Michael, though he fought so hard to stay. In the end, we will miss his humble presence on this earth, however, it is his spirit, the memories of so many wonderful, goofy moments we had with him and how it impacted all of us, which will forever remain within us. Michael, you were loved by so many and we hope you are now at peace, as your life did see more of its share of hard Ɵmes. It is also our hope you have met up with Tata (Joso), along with your dogs: Sophie, Duchess and Chico. Though we can never take your place, we will be there for Mom. One day we will see you again and know your mother, your sisters and brothers, their husbands, wives & children, along with so many friends & neighbors, will miss asking our Mikey, “How was your day, today….50/50?. A Memorial Tea celebraƟng Michael’s life will be held on Thursday, May 15th, 2014 at 12:00 PM from the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home. Those friends wishing to make memorial contribuƟons in memory of Michael may do so to the Canadian Wildlife FederaƟon- 350 Michael Cowpland Drive, Kanata, Ontario K2M 2W1 or email trudyfΛcwf-fcf.org . Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Pleasant Valley Dignity Funeral Home (250) 542-4333.

was born on September 15th, 1937 in Gibraltar and passed away on May 7th, 2014 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 76 years.

Born in Calgary, Alberta and second eldest of seven children, son of Pina & Joso Birkich, took his last breath in Vernon B.C. at 9:15 am. Michael was an extraordinary person who never hesitated to help those in need. Like everyone in this world, he had dreams but simple ones. One of these dreams was to be a gold prospector. One of his other dreams was to Įnd a piece of land away from the hustle and bustle, where he could take his family and friends Įshing, while playing his harmonica. Twenty seven years ago, his dreams had to be placed on hold when his father passed at the same age of 54. He was a son who cared for his mother. So much so, he moved to BC, as his heart knew he had to be there for her. In 1992, Michael and Mom bought a piece of farmland in Falkland. They both worked the land, built a house and over Ɵme made great friends with their neighbors. When a harvest came in or the snow had to be ploughed, they were there for each other.

SETTING THE RECORD STRAIGHT

CANADIAN JOBS AT RISK WITHOUT TEMPORARY FOREIGN WORKER ACCESS The restaurant industry employs 1.2 million Canadians and is one of the largest sectors and job creators in the Canadian economy. In select markets there are critical labour shortages and restaurant owners don’t have enough applicants for available jobs. The Temporary Foreign Worker Program allows restaurants to fully staff their operations. In some markets, restaurant owners would have to scale back their business and even close their doors without these workers.

Only when restaurant owners exhaust efforts to hire Canadians, are they allowed to hire temporary foreign workers. Temporary foreign workers help us protect ALL restaurant jobs. The restaurant industry is committed to working with the government to ensure the integrity and responsible use of the program while protecting Canadian jobs. Right now there is a ban on our use of the Temporary Foreign Worker Program. It’s time to lift the ban.

Protect jobs and service in your community. Ask your Member of Parliament to lift the ban.

Repair Cafe serves support Morning Star Staff

Hundreds of people of all ages attended Vernon’s second annual Repair Cafe. People came with dull knives and tools, broken books and bicycles, children’s

toys, clothing, musical instruments, small appliances and computers. Some of the things people said were: “Most people I know don’t really like throwing things away - there is a sense of defeat when you can’t figure out how to fix something that should still have useful life” This event was organized by Vernon in Transition, with support from the Okanagan Science Centre and the Regional District of the North Okanagan.

Advertised pricing and product selection (flavour, colour, patterns, style) may vary by store location. We reserve the right to limit quantities to reasonable family requirements. We are not obligated to sell items based on errors or misprints in typography or photography. Coupons must be presented and redeemed at time of purchase. Applicable taxes, deposits, or environmental surcharges are extra. No sales to retail outlets. Some items may have “plus deposit and environmental charge” where applicable. ®/™ The trademarks, service marks and logos displayed in this flyer are trademarks of Loblaws Inc. and others. All rights reserved. © 2014 Loblaws Inc. * we match prices! Applies only to our major supermarket competitors’ flyer items. Major supermarket competitors are determined solely by us based on a number of factors which can vary by store location. We will match the competitor’s advertised price only during the effective date of the competitor’s flyer advertisement. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and in the case of fresh produce, meat, seafood and bakery, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us). We will not match competitors’ “multi-buys” (eg. 2 for $4), “spend x get x”, “Free”, “clearance”, discounts obtained through loyalty programs, or offers related to our third party operations (post office, gas bars, dry cleaners etc.). We reserve the right to cancel or change the terms of this program at any time. Customer Relations: 1-866-999-9890.
