DOWNHILL CHASE

Vancouver’s Lain Jackhurst (left) stays ahead of Vernon’s Brendan Davidson while rounding a Middleton Mountain curve Sunday during the 10th anniversary of the Vernon Downhill. The popular boarding event featured participants from Canada, the U.S., Puerto Rico, New Zealand and Australia. Davidson ended up second in the small final and sixth overall in the Open division.

The outpouring of support for RCMP members in the wake of last week’s Moncton tragedy has been felt by the local detachment. Vernon-North Okanagan Supt. Reg Burgess, along with all members and staff of the detachment, would like to sincerely thank the many residents and businesses of the region that have stopped by to say thank you and express their condolences. “Many have left flowers and candles or sent well wishes in honour of our three fallen members and two that were injured last week in Moncton,” said Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk, who wore an RCMP Memorial Pin until after the funeral for the three slain Mounties Tuesday. “Your support of our members during this time is very much appreciated as we feel the support of the North Okanagan,” added Molendyk. Thousands of police officers from across Canada, including one member from Armstrong, a troop mate of one of the officers killed, were in Moncton Tuesday for an RCMP regimental funeral service for the three Mounties shot dead in the line of duty. Moncton Mayor George LeBlanc expected between 5,000 and 7,000 police officers to attend the funeral, which was to be preceded by an RCMP parade. More local officers were expected to attend services being held in Kelowna and Surrey on Tuesday.

Suspicious fires plague officials ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Two more suspicious fires on the weekend have Vernon Fire Rescue Services and RCMP frustrated. On Friday, shortly before midnight, fire and police were called to a report of a fire in an abandoned house in the 3800 block of 30th Avenue. “The rear of the building was totally engulfed when the fire department arrived,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk Monday morning. Just before midnight Sunday, the BX Swan Lake Fire Department received a report of a boat on fire in the 7000 block of Pleasant Valley Road at a locked compound. “The boat is approximately 22-feet long

and is totally destroyed,” said Molendyk. Similar to a boat fire the previous weekend at a compound in Spallumcheen, at the north end of Swan Lake, there was also minor heat damage to another larger boat that was parked next to it. Both fires this weekend were started around midnight, both are deemed suspicious and there are no suspects at this point. The total number of suspicious unsolved fires in the Greater Vernon and Spallumcheen area is in double digits. “It is frustrating,” said Vernon deputy fire chief Lawrie Skolrood. “It ties our crews up and officers in terms of investigation. It’s costly in terms of man-time.” Vernon RCMP have allocated added resources to the investigation. What’s equal-

ly frustrating for both sets of emergency personnel is there hasn’t been one solid clue linking the unsolved fires. “There are some similarities with some of the fires,” said Skolrood. “They’ve escalated, I think, more into crimes of opportunity, like the vacant buildings, vehicles and boats. “It just seems like it’s where they can cause the most trouble.” If there is one similiarity, it’s a majority of the fires have started between 11 p.m. and 1 a.m., and several of the fires have been at Vernon’s north end. “The best thing the public and businesses can do is protect their property, keep a lookout for suspicious activities and report it to police right away,” said Skolrood.

New tourism centre opens

In Favour

richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s contentious new visitors information centre is open. The facility’s doors opened Tuesday next to Civic Arena. “We’re off to the races. We’re excited to make the move,” said Kevin Poole, the city’s economic development manager. The centralization of visitor services from two locations at the north and south end of Vernon to one site caused extensive debate in the community. Some residents were concerned tourists in RVs would be unable to turn off the highway easily while others questioned the $292,215 cost for renovations. The city had originally hoped the centre would open May 1 but a delay occurred because the Ministry of Transportation had not approved property rezoning. Ministry support was needed because the property is 800 metres off of Highway 97. With the ministry signing off on the project, city council adopted the rezoning bylaw Monday. “It’s a great location because it’s downtown,” said Coun. Brian Quiring. “ Quiring is confident that the public complaints over the site will cease now that the centre is open. “When people see folks using it, they will realize it’s a good location,” he said. The lone opponent to the bylaw was Coun. Bob Spiers. “It’s a ridiculous location. There will be a decrease in the number of people who will use the booth,” said Spiers.

District in a pickle over sport richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Coldstream officials are trying to find middle ground between a neighbourhood and enthusiasts of a fast-growing sport. Council voted Monday to restrict when pickleball can be played at the tennis courts on Mt. Ida Drive because of neighbours’ protests over noise and traffic. “It’s a difficult issue because whose rights trump the other’s?” said Coun. Gyula Kiss. “I’m not sure how we resolve the issue.” For the remainder of the season, pickleball can only be played at the courts Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. The goal is to try and provide adjacent residents with some relief. “There’s a loud ping or pop noise when the paddle hits the ball. It can be heard inside the home when the windows and doors are shut,”

said Derek Watson, who spoke on behalf of Council also heard from a member of the some residents. Vernon Pickleball Club. Watson says the constant noise has led to “It does make a noise but we play it and we migraine headaches and anxiety for his wife. don’t want to damage our ears.

Homeless memorial proposed richard rolke Morning Star Staff

Efforts are underway to ensure that the North Okanagan’s homeless are never forgotten. Chuck Harper, a residential worker for the John Howard Society and a community chaplain, has proposed a permanent memorial in Polson Park to those homeless individuals who have died. “The issues of homelessness and poverty continue to affect the lives of our marginalized,” Harper told Vernon Chuck Harper city council Monday. “We want to do something that honours the lives of our street friends.” Fourteen homeless residents have died in Vernon in the past year. The memorial would be a place for friends and family to gather to reflect on their loved ones. It would also serve as a reminder of the impact of homelessness, addiction and mental illness. “We can remember lives lost and move forward and eliminate homelessness and poverty,” said Harper. The concept of a memorial arose after a home-

less resident Harper knew died. “This wrecked me to the point where I felt led to do something about it,” he said. Similar memorials exist in Santa Clara, Calif., London, Ont., Edmonton and Toronto. The memorial would be located next to the gazebo in Polson Park and a large rock has already been donated for the memorial. The John Howard Society will look after ongoing maintenance and repairs. Vernon council has not made an official decision yet on allowing the memorial in Polson Park, but there appears to be support for Harper’s plan. “He has brought forward an issue of no personal benefit and is thinking of the community,” said Mayor Rob Sawatzky. As a retired physician, Sawatzky is aware of the health challenges created by homelessness. “Issues like homelessness make you sick and weak and you die far sooner than the average age,” he said.

Greater Vernon residents can continue to access farm-fresh produce Friday afternoons although a new location has taken root. The Vernon Friday Night Market has ceased operations at the Village Green Centre and is now part of the Avenue Market, which takes place Fridays from 4 to 7 p.m. on 30th Avenue downtown. “Our vendors were moving one by one downtown and we were down to seven and some of them wanted to go as well,” said Eugene Rohrer, one of the Vernon Friday Night Market organizers. “We hope all of our customers will go downtown.” The Avenue Market began May 9. “Everything has been awesome,” said Lara Konkin, executive director of the Downtown Vernon Association, which organizes Avenue Market. “It’s the best thing we have done. Our businesses are more than thrilled and they are doing lots of business Friday nights.” Konkin is pleased with the participation of local farmers. “Having them join forces helps us create 10-times a better market,” she said. “I see it as a partnership with them.”

School bus routes cut katherine MortiMer

Morning Star Staff

There will soon be a lot more kids walking to school, thanks to re-designed bus routes in the Vernon School District. Budget constraints means a cut to several bus routes and students who are within 2.4 km of their school will now be required to walk there, rather than ride the bus, with the majority of routes in the district undergoing changes. District superintendent Joe Rogers said the changes mean a savings of $125,000 for the district, with the new routes to be implemented June 19. “We want to implement the changes now to ensure that all changes are known and practised prior to September,” said Rogers. “And the other part is there could be mistakes — we’re changing thousands of kids’ routes, so we want to make sure there are no errors and if there are we can fix them.” The changes will be implemented as of June 19, with transportation provided to the catchment area students who live more than 2.4 km from their school, although some students may be required to walk up to 2.4 km to the nearest bus stop. Out of catchment courtesy riders are accommodated if there is space on the bus and if it works within the route schedules. “We’ve had the drivers drive the new routes as it’s better to try practising these routes now so they will be checking both the new and old bus routes to make sure no kids are left behind,” said Rogers. He added that Vernon has the shortest walk limit in the Okanagan, with both Salmon Arm and Penticton using 4 km walk limits. Busing changes were implemented last fall at

the Fulton family of schools which also includes Mission Hill, Okanagan Landing and Ellison elementary schools. “We are in a budget crunch — this is the formula that we’ve always had, but we’ve had the same busing money since 2000 and we are trying to get all of our budgets somewhere near the amount that we are allocated,” said Rogers. “Making cuts is always tough — we want to keep as many professionals in the classroom as possible, so where do we make the cuts, to CEAs, to teachers?” CUPE president Mark Olsen said the re-designed bus routes translates into five people losing their position and one losing hours from their bus run. “I guess they have decided there are some efficiencies they can get, but it’s a lot,” he said. “The drivers will still be working but will be in a different capacity and not have specific assigned routes.” These latest cuts to support staff have come at what has been a good week for members of CUPE, which reached a tentative provincial agreement. “For some of our drivers, this is a secondary income, but for some it’s their main source of income so that does affect them,” said Olsen, a district bus driver. Eligible students registered for transportation have received a route schedule with a memo confirming their new morning and afternoon bus stops. Students who are already registered to ride will automatically have their route information updated in the transportation system. They are not required to re-register unless their busing needs have changed, such as changing schools. Students changing schools or moving will need to re-register for busing by June 26, including those starting Grade 8 in the fall.

Cosmetic pesticide ban expanding richard rolke Morning Star Staff

The campaign to restrict pesticides is growing. The White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Advisory Committee is moving ahead with a ban on cosmetic pesticides in its parks in Lumby and Cherryville. “We support the idea,” said Rick Fairbairn, chairperson. The committee’s move comes after the Village of Lumby recently decided to ban chemicals for cosmetic pest control. To control weeds, WVPRCAC is proceeding with turf management practices such as aeration and over-seeding. However, there may be instances where chemicals are still used. “The policy still allows us to use it for the protection of infrastructure and for health and safety reasons,” said Tannis Nelson, community development coordinator. Fairbairn also agrees with that approach. “If there are ant hills in a playing field, that’s

not a cosmetic free zone and we need to deal with it,” he said. The move against pes-

ticides in Lumby comes after concerns were raised by a representative of the Canadian

Cancer Society and residents about the negative health effects of chemicals.

In a pickle

oldstream politicians were damned if they do, damned if they don’t right from the get-go. As Monday’s council meeting began, they were faced with a clear division — pickleball enthusiasts on one side of the room and residents fed up with pickleball on the other side. “It’s a difficult issue because whose rights trump the other’s?” said Coun. Gyula Kiss. “I’m not sure how we resolve the issue.” The issue at hand is the apparent noise the pickleball makes hitting the paddle at the tennis courts on Mt. Ida Drive. “We can’t deal with this all summer,” said resident Derek Watson, adding that the noise has resulted in migraine headaches and stress for his wife. “We are expelled from our home when pickleball is being played.” Many of the complaints are directed to the informal play that comes outside of scheduled matches. Richard Rolke “When you are outside and in the yard and the courts are utilized with that sound, it’s difficult to take out of the blue,” said neighbour Allan Budan. Traffic has also become an issue as the Vernon Pickleball Club meets three mornings a week. As the old saying goes, a man’s home is his castle. People invest a lot in their properties and neighbourhoods and when something possibly threatens that, they are going to push back. It’s natural. However, what’s also understandable is the passion many people are showing for pickleball, which is similar to badminton and tennis. One of the fastest growing sports in North America, the local club’s membership has soared from just a handful to more than 200. The goal has been to fund a permanent home, and it seemed like the Middleton Mountain tennis courts were the ideal spot. “It’s getting used a lot,” said Gerry Forcier, a club member.

Forcier admits some noise has been generated. “We want to be respectful of the neighbours and we’re grateful we can use it there. We don’t want to annoy people. We will do what we can,” he said. With two factions before them, Coldstream council struggled with what to do. Ultimately, it was decided to restrict pickleball at the courts Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. That will continue to allow the pickleball club to meet while preventing unscheduled, drop-in games, hopefully ensuring residents have some relief from the steady noise. However, installing signs isn’t enough. Will the municipality be prepared to enforce the rules when complaints come in about someone playing pickleball after hours? And the potential for conflict looms as limiting the game to 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. could be considered discriminatory. “We’re saying that any working person in the neighbourhood who wants to play the occasional pickleball can’t,” said Coun. Pat Cochrane. Also consider that the battle will spread beyond Middleton Mountain. Council has agreed to pickleball lines at the Kalview tennis courts so how will neighbours there react to the noise? There have been some suggestions about allowing the sport at the Lavington court, but homes are easily within ear-shot. One solution may be to construct a facility strictly for pickleball, but there will never be a place central enough for players to access but far enough away from residents to be sound-proof, unless it’s indoors. Coldstream staff and politicians will monitor the situation at the end of the season and determine if new policies are required for the coming year. However, there is no avoiding the competing pressures that will come from a group of sports enthusiasts and residents looking for some peace and quiet. And with no magic fix or simple solution, I actually feel sorry for the powers-that-be.

Fourteen — it’s a number that should shock all of us. That’s how many people died last year in Vernon because they were homeless and at risk from associated issues such as mental health and substance abuse. Society unfortunately often overlooks their passing because they were homeless, but consider that they were someone’s son, daughter, parent, friend or spouse. You may have not known their name but you might have walked by them on numerous occasions or come across them reading the paper in the library. They were part of our community. That’s why Chuck Harper’s concept of a homeless memorial is something the entire community should embrace. “We want to do something that honours the lives of our street friends,” said Harper, a community chaplain and residential worker for the John Howard Society. Harper wants to ensure these lives lived don’t go unnoticed, that their time here was as significant as the politicians, merchants, volunteers, labourers and others who call Vernon home. The memorial will be a place where those left behind will be able to reflect on their loved ones. But Harper’s vision is more influenced by the future than the past. “...We can move forward and eliminate homelessness and poverty,” he said. A memorial would be a call to arms to elected officials, social agencies and rank-and-file citizens that the root causes of homelessness must be addressed — that we must all extend a hand to a neighbour in need. Creating a memorial in Polson Park won’t solve all of the world’s problems, but it could motivate all of us to act and to be more compassionate. It’s a move towards ensuring there isn’t a number 15.

program dissed I wish to add my voice to those who dislike the newly mandated recycling program in the province. Every scrap of advance literature rammed home how many new items we would be able to recycle. Not once were the items we could no longer easily recycle mentioned. Under the old system, if we needed to put out six bags of recyclable items, we could. With just one box for this and one box for that, what happens to our leftovers? A clear plastic bagful of shred-

CBC unites our country

n regards to R.L. Shunter’s recent letter where the sentiment was to scrap the CBC and have the CRTC taken with it, we totally disagree. Have you really taken the time to listen - I mean really listen to the programming? Kathy Tomlinson does investigative reporting with her Go Public feature. If you have an issue, you can go public with her. All of her story ideas come from people who contact them with many of these people featured prominently in the stories themselves. Tonic on Sunday evening with jazz and blues makes you cooler. Chris Walker and crew give the Okanagan their early morning wake up call. David French (a Vernon guy) reads the local news at half-past the hour. Then we have The Vinyl Café on Sundays at noon. Stuart McLean weaves his masterful story telling and talks about Dave’s favourite restaurant, Wong’s Scottish Meatpies. For those of us who know all about Dave and Morley, who can forget the gastronomical event where Dave cooks the Christmas turkey and what Dave’s son says to the copper when they are pulled over after a party at Mary Turlington’s. You see, Mary Turlington is Dave's neighbour who... well, it seems you’re not much interested. The stories Stuart weaves are rich in human emotion and laughter.

teachers' strike Forty-three years ago, I was elected as representative for the school board. My wife and I had five kids attending school so we thought we should do our bit. The teacher's rep and I met in the National Cafe, now long gone. We had a cup of coffee and decided the teachers should get a 25 cents raise in pay, which they accepted. Things have changed haven't they? Bart Bartholomew

ded paper will fill up one blue box, yet you will not recycle the plastic bag? We can continue to recycle phone books, but not paperback books. If a phone book isn't a paperback, I don't know what it is. Why not simply ask us to remove the covers of paperback books, if indeed they are an issue. We can no longer include chip or foil bags, liquid absorbing pads, kitchen plastic wrap or stretch wrap for meat, poultry, fish or cheese, or plastic bags. Snow and rain are normal weather features of the North Okanagan, yet these new boxes are open to the elements. We've been advised to have our boxes outside at 7 a.m. only on the morning of pick-up, but unless the program is like Santa Claus' Christmas morning parcel delivery, not every box will magically be picked up at 7 a.m. Mother Nature will have a field day with the paper items even if the second box is placed on top. Fortunately, a friend lives in Spallumcheen where the blue box program is not in use and she has happily agreed to take some of

these items. And Venture Training in Vernon will take other items. As long as I have and can drive a car, this will be my other back-up. For years, I have recycled glass, juice boxes and many other items at our local recycling depot. Thankfully Armstrong is a small community and this is no chore. If I don't accumulate too much, I can even cycle down to recycle these items. Frankly, I think we've been sold a flawed system. I will continue to recycle but more grudgingly and there's an election coming. e. suzie sims adapt to recycling A first in Vernon this morning, I recycled plant pots and seedling trays, milk cartons and gable-tops all in a blue box - wow. Previously, plant pots and trays had to be put in the garbage, and cartons collected separately and taken to a depot. Sure recycling takes a bit of effort as we must now collect plastic, styrofoam and glass separately to take to the depot, but at least that stuff is still accepted for recycling (and no

Terry O’Reilly and his show on Saturday mornings, Under the Influence, talks about advertising and marketing in a way you’ve probably never thought of. In a recent episode he talked about the art of the elevator pitch. The definition of an elevator pitch is being able to pitch an idea in the time it takes an elevator to go from the first floor to the second. Have you ever given it much thought? Probably not but Terry does it in a most unique way. Sheryl MacKay and her show, North by Northwest, helps us ease into our early weekend mornings. You’ll meet creative people from all around the province and hear about their passions and inspirations. Do my wife and I listen to all that CBC offers? Not a chance. But then again you most likely don’t watch every show that ABC, CBS and NBC have to offer either. With all due respect, that’s where the on/off button comes in handy. If you don’t like the program, turn the radio off or find another station. CBC is what unites our country coast to coast to coast. It keeps us in touch with home via the Internet or satellite radio when travelling or living outside of Canada. We rely on CBC for accurate local, regional, national and world news, weather and sports. Scrapping the CBC is like throwing the baby out with the bath water. Jay schappert

extra charge for styrofoam). Now that zip-lock bags and plastic wrap are not accepted, it is time to rethink my storage habits. Do we choose plastic convenience, or reusable storage containers so we don’t generate that garbage in the first place? What are you prepared to do to reduce your waste? Please take the time to educate yourself on the program details such as why plastic bags and overwrap aren’t collected so you can provide constructive comments to the agency most able to bring about change: MMBC. If you can't carry a blue box to the curb once every two weeks, ask a neighbour for help. I am adapting to the new program, recycling as much as possible and minimizing my waste, no matter what. I hope you will too. inge Friesen no more In response to the recent article on arena options, I think until the hospital is complete, no more projects should be undertaken.

Artist lets the image do the talking Michael Bjornson goes Beyond Narrative in new exhibition at Headbones Gallery Morning Star Staff

A lone and haunted looking figure stands at the side in one of Michael Bjornson’s paintings. It’s a regular theme in Bjornson’s work, which is said to be reminiscent of that of Norwegian painter Edvard Munch or Britain’s Francis Bacon. “It depicts man in a sociological framework that points to a potential for isolation despite the connected awareness of the age of social media,” said Julie Oakes, owner/ curator of Vernon’s Headbones Gallery, which is about to show Bjornson’s painting in the exhibition Beyond Narrative. An esteemed Vancouver artist, curator and award-winning film and theatre production designer, Bjornson’s paintings are said to evoke a sense of narrative discovery. “The lone figure in the landscape with the empty boat in Dark Sea or the ghostly white presence enclosed within an architectonic rectangle in Contained suggest a context for his figures, yet more often it is a solitary being, costumed, disguised, existing... that brings a sense of drama to his paintings,” said Oakes. In describing his methods, Bjornson says on his website that he has a great empathy with the following quote from Michael Ondaatje: “I don’t have a plan for a story when I sit down to write. I would get quite bored carrying it out... It’s a discovery of a story when I write a book, a case of inching ahead on each page and discovering what’s beyond in the darkness, beyond where you’re writing.” “It expresses my personal sense of

Vancouver artist Michael Bjornson shows his painting, Dark Sea, in the exhibition Beyond Narrative at Headbones Gallery in Vernon starting June 21. engagement as I endeavour to develop visual narratives,” said Bjornson. “I frequently move back and forth with images, ultimately reaching an edited and/or reconstructed version that suggests a time of acceptance, as opposed to competition.” Bjornson’s identification with story telling moves beyond the physical plane to evoke a more colourful and complex set of personalities, adds Oakes. “He creates a world peopled with characters who appear to have colourful foibles and in doing so he invites us into the picture as well. This is the engagement that he speaks of. It is an allowance, a gift of acceptance, that Bjornson passes over for our consideration.” Born in Vancouver, Bjornson attended

UBC, attaining degrees in art history and architecture before working as a practising architect for many years. He was also involved in the film industry, wining both a Leo and a Golden Sheaf award for production design of the 2001 film Mon Amour Mon Parapluie. As a curator, Bjornson opened Vancouver’s Third Street Gallery, which he directed for 10 years, and then joined forces with Sherri Kajawara in the Bjornson Kajawara Gallery. “Both galleries were renowned for contemporary and often edgy art works,” said Oakes, adding Bjornson subsequently attended and graduated from the Emily Carr School of Art and Design (now University.) When the Bjornson Kajawara Gallery

closed in 2010, Bjornson immersed himself in creating and collaborated on paintings, drawings and installations with other artists. For his solo work, Bjornson is said to bring a psychological presence into the picture that is as palpable as the portrait. “The feeling of psychosis is not an active, violent, or disturbed concentration, however, but a poignant and beautiful appreciation of melancholy. Like Goethe’s (The Sorrows of) Young Werther, the sentiment is drenched in perfumed romance,” said Oakes. Headbones is hosting a reception for Bjornson and his work at the gallery on Old Kamloops Road Saturday, June 21 from 6 to 8:30 p.m. More information is available at www.headbonesgallery.com or call (250) 5428987. The work will be up until July 26.

Guitar student performs an ode to her pet bearded dragon Morning Star Staff

Michelle Tobler, with Dakota, performs a song dedicated to her pet bearded dragon at the Caetani Capers music recital, Sunday at the Caetani Cultural Centre.

Most children know the song Puff the Magic Dragon, written by Leonard Lipton and Peter Yarrow and made famous by Yarrow’s folk group Peter, Paul and Mary. On Sunday, a young Vernon music student will premiere her very own “dragon” song, and it comes with a special story. Michelle Tobler, who has been taking guitar lessons for two years with Vernon music teacher Devon Muhlert, will perform Happy Lizard Blues, dedicated to her pet bearded dragon, at the Caetani Capers recital at the Caetani Cultural Centre. Allergic to cats and dogs, among other things, Tobler really wanted a pet. Just before last Christmas, her family found an ad online stating that a good home was needed for a bearded dragon. “They thought they’d give it a try and brought her home. Michelle named her new pet Dakota,” said Muhlert. The reptile, which is two-and-a-half years old, had not been looked after by its previous owner and had become aggressive. “A woman knowledgeable in the species took Dakota in to rehabilitate her, treating her with calm and kindness,” said Muhlert. “Because this dragon foster mom already had two other bearded

dragons, she couldn’t keep her – a fact that made Michelle very happy.” Tobler now plays and cuddles with a creature who might look a bit un-cuddly to others. Her song came about when Tobler spoke about her unusual pet to Muhlert, who set out to write lyrics for a song about Dakota. Set to the blues tune Worried Man Blues, Tobler insisted, “I want to write Happy Girl Blues instead.” Muhlert countered, “But blues are about being unhappy – maybe we have to change the name.” So they did, to Happy Lizard Blues, still somewhat of an oxymoron, said Muhlert. Visitors can hear the song at Muhlert’s annual Caetani Capers concert, which is being held this year on Father’s Day because one performer’s family is visiting from Korea. Students plan to showcase their accomplishments on guitar, flute, saxophone and clarinet, as well as therapeutic singing. “It is a mix of adult and child performers, and the concert is open to the public,” said Muhlert. Besides Tobler, another featured performer is Trista Bassett, a singer-songwriter who will also duet to Muhlert’s premiere of Homecoming Song. The concert will be held outside in the main courtyard at the Caetani Cultural Centre by the artist studios, rain or shine, Sunday at 2 p.m.

Peonies in bloom at puppet museum Morning Star Staff

The peonies are starting to bloom as the Runaway Moon Theatre Arts Society prepares to host its annual Peony Tea fundraiser on Father’s Day Sunday. The 13th annual event takes place at the puppet museum at Curly Willow Farm in Grindrod from 1 to 4 p.m. “(It) will offer children and adults of all ages the opportunity to help felt flowers, chat with puppets, be a bee, dance around the June pole, pick an arm-load of peonies, and bid on silent auction items donated by local businesses,” said Lark Lindholm, with Runaway Moon Theatre. Afternoon entertainment will fea-

ture the talents of Mimi, Murray, the Balkan Choir, Zompopo Flores, Steve Fultz and the Twilight Gypsies Twirl. “There will also be lemonade, tea, and lots of home-baked goodies for sale and all attendees can head home with an armful of peonies,” said Lindholm. Curly Willow Farm is located off Highway 97A on Tompkinson Road (turn at SureCrop Feeds in Grindrod). Parking will be available along the road (look for signs.) Admission to the tea is $8 for adults, $3 for children over five, and $15 for a family. More information is available by e-mailing info@runawaymoon.org, or call 250-838-6751.

Writer explores syncretism Cara Brady Morning Star Staff

Religion is part of everybody’s life whether they acknowledge it or not. In Praise of Mixed Religion, The Syncretism Solution in a Multifaith World, a new book by The Reverend Dr. William Harrison of Vernon, explains why religion matters in the lives of individuals, societies and the world. “Even people who think they are non-religious are touched by religion. Understanding our own and other people’s religions opens up the world of classic and contemporary art, literature, music, history and current politics. Think of the present situations in Russia/ Ukraine and Israel. These and many others have aspects of religion.” After his first book, Frequently Asked Questions in Christian Theology, Harrison, an Anglican priest and principal of Kootenay School of Theology, expands his scope to consider how people can learn about and from other religions to build a better world. “We think of ourselves as living in our own religions but in fact we’re always learning from other people. I’ve learned a lot from people who are not Christians, one thing I can name is learning how to read and understand books and literature that are not written from a Christian perspective. “The basic idea of the book is syncretism, meaning mixing religions together. Scholars are

I

“If you don’t have an education about religion, you are dangerously ignorant.” — The Rev. Dr. William Harrison neutral about it but it happens.” Harrison said there are a number of approaches to syncretism: one that it is a good thing that helps people learn and grow; the traditional or subjective that it is not good; and the scholarly, objective approach that syncretism happens. He proposes what he calls the advocacy approach, with examples from various studies of different religions and where, when and how syncretism happened and still happens. “Information flows in and out of the intersections of religions. Syncretism can be a good thing when it helps us to learn and grow and not so good when it causes societies to act against the good of its citizens and others. An example of when syncretism should have happened is when Christianity and First Nations met, but there are many others,” he said. “We need to have, individually and collectively, what I call critical openness, to understand and accept the insights from others who may be very different from us, but not to accept everything. It is neces-

sary to make informed judgments. This is a complex mind set, always accepting that you might be wrong.” One section of In Praise of Mixed Religion is titled, The Last Taboo — Education and Religion. “Religion plays a big part in our intellectual heritage and if you don’t have an education about religion, you are dangerously ignorant. One way this shows up in our contemporary world is in our relationships with other religions, particularly with the many strands of Islam. We often default to false stereotypes which have the potential for tragic misunderstanding,” said Harrison. “We have taken religion out of formal education and we are raising children who have more access to information but without the knowledge of how to understand and judge what they hear and read, not only about religions but other aspects of education and life. This puts them at a disadvantage in the world in many ways. “An intellectual transformation (of society) may take a long time. We must recognize

that religions are solutions to questions and problems. The challenge is to recognize that we all bring resources and wisdom through our different points of view. We can start at a personal level with interreligious listening and conversation. The Interfaith Bridging Project is an excellent local example of this.” Harrison presents a seminar, Thinking About World Religions, Saturday at All Saints Anglican Church, Vernon. “I will be speaking about ways, including various theories, in which we can relate helpfully to people of different religions, with lots of time for questions, discussion and conversation. I prefer to be interrupted, if nobody’s interrupting, they’re not as engaged as I hope they would be. “People want to talk about this. There is a universal interest in other religions. People of other religions are our neighbours in ways we haven’t noticed before, whether it’s next door or half-way around the world.” In Praise of Mixed Religion, The Syncretism Solution in a Multifaith World was published by McGill-Queens University Press in May 2014 and is available at Amazon.com. The Thinking About World Religions seminar takes place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The cost is $30, lunch included. For more information or preregistration, please e-mail to rvs_rita@telus.net.

Garden time flies too quickly

f the saying “Time flies when you’re having fun” is true, I must have a lot because I just don’t see it going by. June is already going fast and all my good intentions of planting my garden early have faded. Some of my ground cover really took off when I was not looking and invading many of my beds. It takes time to remove it all in order to put something else. Jocelyne Sewell In the meantime, my compost pile is getting bigger and doing very well heating up to 130 C in less than three days. Maybe the cold winter we had took care of the earwigs. I transplanted marigolds and they are still there. I usually lose them within a couple of days to these critters. I noticed the flea beetles are back since I found holes in my bean seedlings. Adult flea beetles are very tiny. They’re black, brown, or bronze with enlarged hind

legs. They jump like fleas when they’re disturbed. The larvae live in the soil and are thin, white, legless grubs with brown heads. Adults emerge from the soil in spring to feed and lay eggs on the roots of plants. They die out by early July. The eggs hatch in about a week, and the larvae feed for two to three weeks. They pupate in the soil, and the next generation of adults emerges in two to three weeks. These pests produce up to four generations a year before the final generation of adults settles down for overwintering. Flea beetles attack most vegetables, particularly cabbage-family plants, potatoes and spinach. They also feed on flowers and weeds. You can recognize flea beetle damage by the small, round holes the adults chew through leaves. These beetles are most damaging in early spring, when heavy infestations can actually kill seedlings. Larger plants usually survive and outgrow the damage, unless they were infected with a plant virus spread by the beetles. Larvae feed on plant roots.

Organic damage control: Plant susceptible plants as late as possible to avoid the most damaging generation. Cover seedlings and potato shoots with floating row covers until adult beetles die off. Lightly cultivate the soil around plants before and after planting to destroy any flea beetle eggs and larvae in the soil. Flea beetles like to hide in cool, weedy areas. Confuse the beetles by mixing up your plantings. Surround their favourite food plants with flowers and herbs like Queen Anne’s lace, dill, and parsley, which attract beneficial insects. Dust your garden plants with food grade diatomaceous earth to get rid of flea beetles. This pulverized rock kills beetles by cutting and dehydrating them. You may have to reapply after the rain. I also squish them between my fingers. You have to be fast and put one finger under the leaf and the other one on top of the flea beetle and crush them up without wrecking the leaves. It takes practice but it works. Don’t forget the People Place garden tour on Saturday. I put in an order for a sunny day with a gentle breeze.

Rhubarb recalls sweet childhood summers

W

hen I was a youngster, rhubarb was the first real treat of the spring season for us kids. Mom would sit us around the kitchen table, which was covered in a plastic tablecloth, and give us each a freshly picked stalk of rhubarb. She then put a large bowl of sugar in the centre into which we would proceed to dip our stalk and chew the end a little before returning to the bowl for more sweetness. By the time the half a dozen or so of us were finished, there were thick, sticky trails of pink sugar pinwheeling between each of our places and the sugar bowl. Double-dipping was a joy and I’m sure it built up our

immune systems as well. I always loved that sweet and sour combination. Since I started picking a few strawberries last week and was gifted a bunch of rhubarb (mine was a dismal failure this year, producing a mere three stalks), I’m enjoying the combination of these two spring delights. There’s nothing like the special taste of sour rhubarb with sweet strawberries, especially when the strawberries are locally grown. Today’s recipes include a trifle and a delicious Family Friendly Pub and Cathi Litzenberger crumble that would the largest "Waterfront" patio be perfect for Father’s Day. on the shores of beautiful Strawberry Rhubarb Trifle Okanagan Lake 1/2 cup sugar 1/4 cup cornstarch 3 cups whole milk 5 egg yolks, beaten 1 teaspoon vanilla extract Filling: 4 cups chopped fresh or frozen rhubarb 1/4 to 1/2 cup sugar Join us for Father’s Day!! 1/4 cup water th 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream 1 prepared angel food cake (8 to 10 ounces), cut into 1-inch cubes 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries Served all day Whipped cream, optional In a heavy saucepan, combine the sugar, $ 99 Only pp cornstarch and milk until smooth.

Get a great photo dressing in some of the ranch's cowboy digs. The Ranch will be cooking up some burgers and hot dogs at the concession. 

Stir a small amount of hot mixture into egg yolks; return all to the pan, stirring constantly. Bring to a gentle boil; cook and stir 2 minutes longer. Remove from the heat. Gently stir in vanilla. Transfer to a large bowl. Cool to room temperature without stirring. Meanwhile, in a saucepan, bring the rhubarb, sugar and water to a boil. Reduce heat; cook and stir for 5-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender and mixture is thickened. Cool completely. In a bowl, beat the cream until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold a fourth of the whipped cream into the custard. Fold in remaining whipped cream. Place half of the cake cubes in a 2-1/2-qt. trifle bowl. Spread with half of the rhubarb mixture; top with 1 cup of strawberries and half of the custard. Repeat layers. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Add a dollop of whipped cream if desired Rhubarb Strawberry Crunch 1 cup white sugar 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour 3 cups sliced fresh strawberries 3 cups diced rhubarb 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 1 cup packed brown sugar 1 cup butter 1 cup rolled oats Ice cream, optional for serving Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a large bowl, mix white sugar, flour, strawberries and rhubarb. Place the mixture in a 9x13 inch baking dish. Mix 1-1/2 cups flour, brown sugar, butter and oats until crumbly. You may want to use a pastry blender for this. Crumble on top of the rhubarb and strawberry mixture. Bake 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until crisp and lightly browned. Serve warm with a scoop of ice cream if desired.

Gardening is part of a healthy lifestyle Editor’s note: The following is from TOPS Club Inc. (Take Off Pounds Sensibly), a nonprofit weight loss support organization. Many gardeners know what scientists have only recently discovered: gardening reduces stress. Getting your hands dirty can provide a variety of other health benefits, too. Gardening may improve fitness levels, promote weight loss, and lead to better eating. A 2011 study from the Journal of Health Psychology gave participants a stressful task and then randomly

assigned them either 30 minutes of outdoor gardening or indoor reading. Both led to decreases in the stress hormone cortisol, but the decreases were “significantly stronger” for the gardeners. New exercisers tend to focus on dedicated aerobic activities like walking, running, cycling or dance. According to Swedish researchers, gardening and other household activities can be just as good as formal aerobic exercise for reducing the risk of heart attack and stroke. In

fact, the U.S. National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute considers gardening for 30 to 45 minutes moderate physical activity. Without realizing it, you could burn around 300 calories an hour just by mowing, digging and weeding. Cathleen D. Zick and colleagues at the University of Utah studied community gardeners and found that they had a lower body mass index than their nongardening neighbors. According to the report, published in the American Journal of Public Health in 2013,

gardeners were also less likely to be overweight or obese. Gardeners may also register lower weights because they eat the fruits of their labour. Try planting a small garden at first. If you don’t have a yard, think about container gardening. Slowly increase your gardening time over several sessions to reduce the chance of muscle soreness. Pay attention to your body. Many gardening tasks favour the dominant hand and that side of the body. Maximize the health benefits by trying some tasks, like digging and watering, with your nondominant hand.

Tentative deal for school staff jeff nagel Black Press

The province has struck a tentative deal with 34,000 school support staff. The five-year agreement provides wage increases totaling 5.5 per cent, with potential for more tied to the performance of the B.C. economy – in line with the standard settlements reached with other public sector unions. It covers education assistants, school secretaries, caretakers, bus drivers and other education support staff, mostly represented by the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE). The union and provincial negotiators with the B.C. Public School Employers Association hammered the deal out in just five days. “We built some momentum very quickly,” said Rob Hewitt, CUPE B.C. spokesman. “The government came our direction enough to meet in the middle and we found a solution.” He said the union also secured increased hours for education assistants and standardization gains to extended health benefit plans. Also included is an Employee Support Grant covering any wages CUPE members lose by refusing to cross legal picket lines. The deal running through to the summer of 2019 must still be ratified by union members. Education Minister Peter Fassbender called the deal “wonderful news” and said both sides were “realistic, flexible and willing to find solutions at the table.” As with other agreements, school support staff get further wage increases in the final four years of

YOUR HEALTH President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch

Frequent BATHROOM TRIPS?

Women: Incontinence, bladder infections, UTI’s can be controlled within days with Bladder Control Tea for Women available in all health food stores. Stop wearing pads and diapers. Has helped tens of thousands of women. 3 million women in Canada suffer needlessly, because the World Health Organization says antibiotics lost most of their effectiveness years ago. Yes, women can go shopping and travelling without fear of wetting or odours. Free yourself from this outdated thinking. Relief guaranteed.æThe tea #4b worked and there were no side effects. After antibiotics and unsuccessful surgery I was skeptical that a tea could help. The testimonials made me try it and to my delight they were true. Angela Romualdi, 46, Maple, ON æNo more wetting accidents. Within a week I was in complete control. Deborah Haight, 49, Collingwood, ON æ After trying every medication in the last 5 years tea #4b worked better than I hoped for. Had relief in 6 days. Thank you for this great product, and above all, for truth in advertising. Marina Rosa, 57, Las Vegas, NV

Albert E. Blain, 74, Schumacher, ON æEven after TURP prostate surgery and microwave therapy had to get up many times. Now down to 1-2 times. Tea is 100% better than drugs. Robert G. Stocker, Eustasis, FL æAfter 1st year drinking tea my PSA went down to 4.5; after 2nd year to 2.9; after 3rd year to 2.3. I highly recommend the tea. A real life saver. Thomas M.

ARTHRITIS Calming Stress

Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis. Guaranteed also for rheumatoid and sciatica, (My own affliction). Truthful actual experiences from real people: < For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON <My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA<I tried another brand and pain came #1 NPN 80042283 back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON<I suffered for years. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. <Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night” Rheumatoid arthritis in joints down 90%, same for my sister…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

Helps to promote healthy mood balance, relaxation, use as a sleep aid and mental stress. Stress is one of the main causes of high blood pressure. Truthful experience by people: < I am calm now in stressful situations! In the past 10 years I had a very short fuse, because my job is quite unpredictable. After I started Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 the difference was amazing. My reactions to stressful situations are totally changed. I also have more energy, too. I don’t yell at others. I have more patience and I am much happier as well. Thank you. Mary-Anne Thompson, 61, Lasalle, ON < I suffered greatly from anxiety. #66 NPN 80041855 Standard treatments did not make me feel good. So my mother bought Bell Calming Chronic Stress #66 and it has been helping me a lot. I am on my 3rd bottle. Remington Fletcher, 19, Ponty Pool, ON < I have a very high stress career in the film industry. There was no time for relaxation or meditation as you are on demand for 12-15 hours a day with no breaks. Since using Bell #66I am able to focus on the tasks at hand with more patience. Thank you for your help! Christina Ollson, 36, Burnaby, BC <It’s exactly one year since we began using Bell Calming Chronix Stress #66 for our two sons. Our local health food store recommended it. Both of our sons suffer from anxiety disorders. Our older son (14) was going through puberty and had become quite unmanageable, because he is much larger than I am. We are delighted with the immediate results. Our older son became his former sweet self and our younger son’s (12) anxiety is dramatically reduced. Thank you so much.

YUMMY SPARERIBS! Less expensive than back ribs, side ribs (or spareribs) have a great flavour, but are generally less tender, and so need a longer cooking time. But the money you save can buy you that special dessert instead! The trick wtih spareribs is to cook them long and slow. A slow cooker is the perfect way to cook these in the summer - it helps to keep the house cool and dinner is ready when you get home! There are many slow cooker rib recipes out there depending on what type of sauce you like. Try one tonight!

Green pursues Tory nomination richard rolke Morning Star Staff

A Lumby resident wants to be OkanaganShuswap’s representative in Ottawa. Janet Green announced Tuesday that she will seek the Conservative nomination for the 2015 federal election. “People need a voice. Ottawa is a long way away and they need someone they can approach,” she said. Green joins Salmon Arm businessperson Mel Arnold in the race to replace Colin Mayes, who will retire as MP once his term is over. Green moved to Lumby in 2005 after 35 years in administrative positions with Vancouver General Hospital and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority. She has been active with both the federal and provincial Conservative parties and served a term on Lumby council. She is also a member of Vernon’s Silver Star Rotary and a former Allan Brooks Nature Centre director and has been involved with the Lumby Thrift Store Society and the Lumby Health Services Society. “I’ve been a part of the community and know my community,” she said. Green says she supports the government of Prime Minister Stephen

Harper. ““I’d like to see a Conservative government elected again and an MP with conservative values represent the riding again,” she said. “I will represent the residents of this region and speak loudly on their behalf.” It’s expected a candidate will be selected Oct. 4, and beyond Green and Arnold, at least three other individuals could put their names forward. Even with a crowded ballot, Green is

hopeful she will rise to the top among local Conservative members. “I have a lot of support in Lumby and Vernon,” she said.

You should have Powers of Attorney once you have any protect-able assets, for instance, you own a house or a business or even a bank account. Should you be in an accident, ill or out of the country, someone can attend to your financial affairs on your behalf. The person you give a Power of Attorney should be a trusted person. You should also understand that abuse of Powers of Attorney is one of the most common ways of elder abuse. We often see cases where children abuse these Powers of Attorney, so don’t assume you will be immune to this. There are many different types of Powers of Attorney, they can be custom tailored to fit your particular circumstances. At Laarakker Law, Wills and Estate Planning is not just something we do; it is something we specialize in. After all, the legacy you leave behind is more important than what you leave behind.

Pleasant Valley Secondary School students spread wood chips along a trail in Armstrong.

PVSS chips in to resurface trail Morning Star Staff

Pleasant Valley Secondary students and staff have been busy resurfacing the chip trail behind the Armstrong school. Three years ago, members of the leadership class conducted an environmental impact assessment and it identified the need to resurface the trail to prevent erosion and regain control of the weeds. Math classes measured the trail and calculated the volume of mulch needed to cover it. “When the calculations revealed that we would

need about 200 cubic yards of material, I think the reality hit us just as to how large this project was going to be,” said teacher Steve Drapala. Tolko donated all of the bark mulch, while DCT Chambers delivered four transport trucks to the school. Noble Tractor donated the use of a tractor and the fuel for two days, local farmer Ian Mckechnie provided his time and one-ton truck for two days to drive the mulch to the trail, and Dan McGladdery spent about five hours with his tractor hauling mulch to the trail and spreading mulch. Gord Lane used his bobcat to help smooth the trail and staff and students spread most of the mulch using rakes, shovels and wheel barrows. “This project would not have been possible without the great support of community members,” said Drapala. “It was great to see the students working to improve their school and community and the sense of pride it created.” Along with using the trail, residents can check out the ethno-botanical garden the school planted last year.

Invasive Species Week is currently underway and there’s an opportunity for North Okanagan residents to learn more about how to prevent the spread of invasive species. The programs and stewardship actions lead by the Okanagan and Similkameen Invasive Species Society are on the front lines of preventing the arrival of new species, slowing their spread, and addressing the enormous collateral damage of invasive species. “Protecting our region from the threat of invasive species is a top priority,” said Lisa Scott, OASISS co-ordinator. “Our society has focused on invasive plants for nearly two decades, but the scope of our efforts is expanding every year, to now include zebra and quagga mussels, European fire ants, American bullfrogs and eastern gray squirrel, just to name a few. We need the public’s engagement to address these biological invaders.” Among the events open to the public this week: Today - There will be an information booth on aquatic invasive species at the Vernon Canadian Tire from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday - There will be an information booth on aquatic invasive species at the Vernon Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday - There will be an information booth on aquatic invasive species at the Paddlewheel Park boat launch from 2 to 6 p.m. Saturday - There will be an information booth on aquatic invasive species at Kona Watersports in Oyama from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday - There will be an information booth on aquatic invasive species at Lumby Days from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The booth will also be there Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Prevention of harmful new invasions is the first priority, as it is the most cost-effective way to deal with the problem,” said Scott. “Once species are

Vipers sign 5 KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Regional playoffs up next for Vernon Rep squads Morning Star Staff

Vernon United Under 14 boys are stoked for the Thompson Okanagan Rep Soccer League playoffs this weekend in Salmon Arm. Yogi Kongsdorf ’s crew finished the regular season with a confidence-boosting 2-1 victory over the Kamloops Blaze Sunday at MacDonald Park. United opened the offence at 15 minutes when Perez Vermeulen and Ben Purvis deftly danced the ball past the Blaze back line, allowing Purvis to bury a bullet. Bryce Turner set up the play 12 minutes later with a cross deep from the right wing to Xander Sladen, who easily converted. Kamloops responded off a scramble after a corner in the dying seconds of the first half. United dominated the second half, feeding the ball confidently down the flanks and getting numerous shots from Purvis, Sladen, Turner, Jarrod Latta, Blake Leupin, and Finn Plummer. Winners of the regional playdowns move to the Provincial B Cup, in Richmond, in early July. Vernon U13s split their weekend games, stopping the Revelstoke Stallions 3-1 before falling 2-1 to Kelowna United. Cole Johnson connected on Vernon’s opening shot Saturday versus Revelstoke, who kept United’s defence hopping all half. Johnson then delivered a free kick which was put in by Lee Christensen, at 30 minutes. Defender Shaun Boucher created a couple of breakaway attempts with some bold play at Mac Park. Revelstoke applied pressure early in the second half and both teams were feeling the intensity of the heat. The Stallions worked in tight, but were denied by keeper Jared Jameson. United enjoyed several scoring chances before Christensen added insurance a dozen minutes into the final half. Revelstoke replied soon after. Kelowna grabbed an early lead Sunday at Beasley Park in Lake Country with a rebound after keeper Noah Podolski made the initial save, at 14 minutes. Vernon failed to equalize with good pressure and Kelowna scored again in the 23rd minute. Bryce Tkachuk just missed connecting off a corner by Johnson early in the second half. Podolski moved upfield and knocked in a Johnson corner for

United U15s bowed 2-1 to Kelowna United Sunday at Beasley Park and placed third. The same teams open the playoffs Saturday in Salmon Arm. Malcolm Wiens scored for United. Mees Geelkerken almost beat the keeper for the equalizer in the dying minutes, but the keeper just got a foot to the ball. James Huntington and Gavin Mason played well as holding mids and Josh Gray and Charis Ondrik were solid on defence. In U12 boys play, Vernon United #2 had a great showing by ambushing Kamloops White 7-0 and then drawing 1-1 in a friendly versus the visiting Kootenay B.C. Summer Games team Sunday. Dawson Martian and Keegan Carmichael put the boys up 2-0 early on Kamloops before ‘The Liam and Ben Show’ (Liam Glennon with two, Liam Reid with a single, and goals from Ben Imrich and Ben Lesyk) took control. “The boys came out strong in the game after a disappointing weekend in Penticton last week and it was a true team effort of incredible ball distribution and finish” said coach John Glennon. Man of the Match was Ben Lesyk, and Logan Quibel was once again stellar in net to earn the

clean sheet. Against the Kootenays ,Vernon came out a little tentative early on, however Imrich, Man of the Match Carmichael and Reid pressed for chances. Luke Jones, Kaden Funk, Ben Morgan and Glennon were solid at the back, however the boys were caught on an counter attack to allow the Kootenays a 1-0 lead at half. In the second half, United came out dictating the pace of play with great high ball pressure and shut down the Kootenay counter. With multiple scoring chances, Vernon tied things up when Glennon was rewarded for his hard work with a deflected shot. Vernon United #1 faced similar competition, winning 4-1 over a tough Kamloops team before falling 3-1 to the Kootenays. Isaiah (The Hair) Ondrik went all-world with a great hat trick, with a single supplied by an excellent Man of the match James Meeks. Kevin Morgan turned back all shots except one breakaway goal and Josh Mckeown and Hayden Catt had strong games shutting down the Kamloops wingers, with Saajan Klair providing good support at numerous different positions.

The Vernon Vipers have re-stocked their depleted roster with the commitment of five players for next B.C. Hockey League season. Local 17-year-old products Linden Hora and Ryley Booth, along with Americans Johnny Coughlin and Thomas Aldworth, and Ontario’s Kyle Tanev signed Monday. Booth, a defenceman from Armstrong, posted five goals and 22 points with the North Okanagan Knights of the KIJHL. He played one game for Vernon in the Fred Page Cup final series and a few regular-season games. “Ryley got better and better as the season progressed,” said Viper head coach/GM Jason Williamson. “He has good patience with the puck and also has good size. We’re excited about the tremendous potential in Ryley.” Booth, who turns 18 in July, attended the Camrose Kodiaks’ spring camp a year ago but is stoked to be a Viper. “It will be nice to stay home and play,” said the Grade 12 Pleasant Valley student. “I try to stay calm and not panic with the puck. I’m usually pretty defensive, depending on how comfortable I am. I pick my spots on offence.”

CALENDAR

WEDNESDAY

Continued from A24

Booth loves Drew Doughty of the Kings and cheers for the Calgary Flames. He played two years of Midget Tier 1 in Vernon. Hora, a forward from Kelowna who started his career in Vernon, played last season with the Okanagan Major Midget Rockets. He pocketed 18 goals and 27 points with the national bronzemedalist Rockets. Hora is a two-way right winger. “Linden played a few games for us and we think he can step in and contribute right away,” said Williamson. “He plays the game the right way and will be a fan favourite.” Said Hora, who was born in Vernon and played four years of minor hockey here: “I’m going to bring physical play and put some pucks in the net. It’s my hometown and I’ve always wanted to play for the Vipers.” Coughlin, a defenceman from Massachusetts who turns 19 in July, rang up 10 goals and 26 points in 25 games with Trinity-Pawlings Lions last season. He was the co-captain of his Prep school team and recently committed to the Holy Cross Crusaders of NCAA Division 1. He is no relation to former Viper Liam Coughlin. “Coughlin is an offensive-minded defenceman we have been after for a while. He has great size at 6-foot-3 and skates very well. We will lean on John to be a key contributor to our back end right away.” Tanev, a 19-year-old forward from Ontario, pocketed 18 goals and 45 points in 41 games with the Thorold Blackhawks in the Greater Ontario Junior League. He is the younger brother of Vancouver Canuck Chris Tanev. “Kyle is a very smart player,” said Williamson. “He sees the ice very well and is very mature. He’s the type of player we were looking for, a player we can play in all situations.” Aldworth, a 19-year-old forward from Texas, split last season between the Tri-City Storm of the USHL and the Lone Star Brahmas of the NAHL, getting six goals and 10 points in 42 games. “Thomas has elite level speed and offensive abilities. He will be a player that will be hard on the forecheck and will be able to create offence.” Vernon now has nine forwards, five d-men and a goalie signed for next season. Meanwhile, Williamson completed a few trades from last year. Ben Butcher’s rights were acquired from the Chilliwack Chiefs in exchange for future considerations. Butcher’s rights, along with Demico Hannoun’s, were then traded to the Surrey Eagles for future considerations, to finalize the deal which brought Surrey captain Brett Mulcahy to Vernon. Winger Matt Saharchuk’s rights were traded to the Battleford North Stars of the SJHL in exchange for futures, finishing a trade for Josh Betinol. The Salmon Arm Silverbacks signed winger Karl El-Mir from the Selects Academy U18 team in St. Lambert, Que. El-Mir, 18, was voted MVP and Offensive Player of the Year in the USPHL U18 Division last season with 17 goals and 48 points. He has a scholarship to the University of Connecticut.

Buick big wheel as Tigers ice Flames Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Source for Sports Tigers scorched the South Okanagan Flames 20-9 in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League action Saturday night at Kal Tire Place. “We were very pleased with our performance. That was our best game from start to finish this year,” said Tigers’ coach Myles Brumpton. It was the 7-2 Tigers’ largest offensive outburst as Connor Buick sniped five goals, Ryan Sarazin bagged four and Darryl Landels and Mitchell Anderson pulled hat tricks. Sarazin Connor Buick has 11 goals and 15 points in three games since returning from Marquette University. The production was spread throughout the lineup as 15 different Tigers found their way onto the scoresheet. Quinton Harrish added a pair, Bayne Bosquet had a goal and three helpers, Jordan Orr supplied 1+2 and Kyle Dennis also scored single. Jay Seaton and Brett Hanna recorded three helpers each. “It all starts with our great defensive play which turns into our transition game, which led to a great offensive game. Everything was working the way it was supposed to,” said Brumpton. The Tigers have allowed a league low 49 goals, 27 fewer than the first-place Kamloops Venom. Thomas Bella made his first start of the season for the Cats and made 24 saves, he was relieved by Dylan Hiemstra five minutes into the third period. “I was very proud of our team, they showed great class on the bench. We didn’t get involved with talking trash and we didn’t over-celebrate on goals. We have developed into a classy group,” said Brumpton.

The Flames (2-6) were led by Chris Pond’s four goals and three assists. Liam Kircher added a pair and singles came from Tanner Thompson, Connor Walton and Kaid McLeod. The Tigers battle the Armstrong Shamrocks (3-6) tonight at Kal Tire Place. Vernon trails Kamloops (10-0) by six points. The Venom will face off with the Kelowna Raiders (1-9) Thursday night.

Novice Legends fall short

The Shuswap Outlaws edged the R Xtra Storage Novice 2 Legends 7-3 Saturday in minor lacrosse play. Jesse Godwin, Devin Jameson and Bradley Scarbar supplied singles while goaltender Riley Kimble was named game MVP. The Penticton Heat burned the Legends 12-3 Sunday at Kal Tire Place.

Wurteles one-two Morning Star Staff

They were at opposite ends of the country, but Vernon’s Heather and Trevor Wurtele both found the podium in Iroman events last weekend. Heather claimed the Ironman 70.3 Eagleman Sunday in Cambridge, Mass. to give her a hat trick of wins so far this season. She earlier won Ironman 70.3 Mexico and Ironman 70.3 California. Along with being one of the strongest cyclists in long distance triathlon, Heather has added a powerful run to her arsenal. Wurtele rode her way into second at the bike/run transition and soon took the lead setting a mile run pace of minutes and 18 seconds. Wurtele’s winning time was 4:11:03. Trevor, meanwhile, finished runner-up in Saturday’s Ironman 70.3 Boise, Idaho. He exited the swim in eighth spot and once on the bike, moved rapidly through the field of Pro Elite men. Posting the day’s fastest bike split of 2:09:28 for the 113-k ride, Wurtele battled two multiple Ironman champs – Aussie Luke Bell and Canada’s Brent McMahon.

After winning just three games last year, Bosman Accounting matched that digit Monday night by holding back Big O Tire-Turn-Key Control Ogopogos 5-4 in Capri Insurance 45+ Soccer League play at Marshall Field #5. Team sponsor Henk Bosman scored a deuce, including one on a penalty kick, as the new and improved accountants moved to 3-5. It was 5-1 Bosman at the half, but the speedy Ogopogos used a heavy 12-minute wind to record two quick goals and apply constant pressure. Bosman keeper Yogi Kongsdorf denied his former club several times in the final 45. Ian Murphy, Mark Sladen and Rob Ross also scored for Bosman, while Mark Wasylyk (2), John Garner and Henry Czerwonka answered for the Ogopogos (3-4). Big O keeper Paul Hunter giftwrapped a pass to Bosman for the opening goal in the third minute. Czerwonka replied a minute later, going crossbar and in from gimme range. Central midfielder Remco Wijnhorst and outside fullback Gerry Geelkeerken enjoyed stellar showings for Bosman. Central defender Ruben Cervantes won several air balls and just missed on a few chances for Big O, who also got bold play from defender Shawn Wiebe. The Okanagan Spring Brewery Camels rode into a share of fifth place by shutting down the Rented Mules 3-0 at Marshall #1. Rick Raber was the On The Roxx Show Lounge Man of the Match, scoring once and drawing two assists as the Humpbacks went to 4-3-1. Central midfielder Paul Morgan finished a sweet give-and-go breakaway with Raber for the first goal, while Raber’s hard corner was redirected by Zane Klym off Gord Howard’s ribs for the 2-0 tally. Raber and Morgan pulled off another give-and-go for insurance. Keeper Dave Dutcher stretched big time for a superb save off a Mule penalty kick in the final half. Midfielder Chris Reeves – sporting a styling

new $10 haircut – ran miles for the Camels. The Mules dipped to 3-4-1. First-place Penticton Dental Centre United cruised to a 5-0 ambushing of the Vernon Liquor Store Stallions at Marshall #2. Despite a strong start and relentless pressure for much of the first half, the Stallions (4-3-1) were unable to create many chances and found themselves down 2-0 at the half on goals by Steve Grant and Darren Schimpf. In the second half, and with the wind in their favour, Penticton took control. Even after losing midfielder Derek Webb for his second yellow card, Penticton (8-0) managed three goals, two more by Grant, and a single by Ken Horncastle, who was the recipient of a pretty pass from Grant for an easy tap in. In other action, Lake Country and Pushor Mitchell drew 2-2, North Country Kickers edged RPM Automotive 3-2 and Brown Benefits bounced Cantinas 5-1. In Kelowna Men’s 35+ Soccer League action, Vernon Kal Tire lost 2-1 to Freeport Industries of Kelowna at Marshall #4. Kal Tire (6-2-1) controlled the first half but only got one goal off a great run by Jesse Knight, who beat two defenders and hit a low shot under the Freeport keeper. Knight leads the league with 14 goals. The Tiremen had a couple of chances but Freeport capitalized on two chances, improving to 5-2-1. Kal Tire hosts Select Your Tickets of Kelowna next Monday night at Marshall #1. All five Vernon oldtimers teams got together for a post-game barbecue organized by Akbal Mund. They raised $1,500 for Seb Gardner, a 25-year-old Vernon product going through his third bout of cancer. Gardner, a Fulton grad and the son of retired Camels’ defender John Gardner, played university soccer for the Thompson Rivers WolfPack in Kamloops.

U13 girls stop Kamloops Continued from A24

Vernon completely dominated the opening half versus the Kootenays, only to be down 1-0 on a breakaway goal just before half. “We were just like Sweden: no Finnish,” deadpanned assistant coach James Cotter. Man of the Match Ondrik dominated the midfield, and the backline of Aiden Skinner, Jack Cotter and Max Chirkoff was solid. That lack of finish proved costly as the Kootenays gathered steam and scored two more second-half goals, offset only by a beauty from Cotter. William Oordt-Bosman was solid all day and Nate Paskiewich offered good runs up front. United U13 girls blanked Kamloops Blaze 5-0 to finish their regular season. Vernon’s first goal came off a Kamloops’ shirt

via a great corner by Mira Szudek, a result of great work along the right side by Jayden Strachan. Megan Sherwood provided an all-round great midfield effort for the 2-0 goal, assisted by Danica Ariano. United turned on the heat in the second half with the defence hemming Kamloops in their own end. Carly Southam, Talia Quiring, Gabby Triggs and Makena Kersey snuffed out any chance of a shot on keeper Hailey Yablonski. Elena Gaskell scored on a great passing series from Szudek and Kelsey Falk and Vernon’s fourth goal came from Brianna Bobbitt, off a short feed from Paige Noakes. Kelsey Carriere buried one left corner to complete the offence as United clinched third heading to Penctiton for this weekend’s playdowns.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder A CRAZY DEAL FOR TRUMP CONTROL A.J. Kitt, who used to be a top downhill skier, said, “You have no control over what the other guy does. You only have control over what you do.” That is usually true at the bridge table, but sometimes you can control your opponent by leaving him with no winning option -- as in this deal. South is in seven spades. West leads the club ace. South ruffs and cashes the spade ace, expecting to claim one nanosecond later. But when East discards a club, suddenly West seems to have a certain trump trick. Is there any chance? North’s rebid was a double negative, showing

a very bad hand, either the traditional two no-trump or the modern three clubs, according to partnership preference. Then South, confident that North could not have an ace, jumped to seven hearts to offer a choice of grand slams. North gave preference to spades, never having expected to make three bids in the auction. The only way to bring home the contract is to lead sidesuit winners through West. When he ruffs one, dummy overruffs, and declarer draws trumps, then having the same number of spades (three) as West. However, West will only ruff if he has no alternative. He will discard as often as possible. Here, if South

immediately runs his hearts, West will pitch his diamond and later ruff the diamond ace. As declarer can throw only four of dummy’s five diamonds on the hearts, he must cash one diamond trick first. Then he plays his hearts. Eventually, West will concede.

POSTMA, NICOLAAS HERONIMUS “NICK” Nov. 24, 1941 – June 3, 2014

We are saddened to announce the passing of Nicolaas (Klaas) Heronimus Postma on June 0ϯ, 2014. He leŌ us peacefully in his home surrounded ďy his family. He fought a ďrief ďut courageous ďaƩle with cancer. This ďaƩle, howeǀer, was not to ďe won and he accepted his path with great dignity. NicŬ was ďorn in oniaga, &rysland, The Netherlands on Noǀemďer 24, 1941, numďer 9 of 12 children ďorn to &rans and 'rietũe Postma. He emigrated to Canada when he was 2ϯ and although he maintained strong Ɵes to his family and naƟǀe land, Canada ďecame his true home. He grew up on a dairy farm at a Ɵme when you used horses to plough the Įeld and milŬed your cows ďy hand - worŬing hard was second nature to him. He was a talented and meƟculous ďuilder of homes and farms, ďut also, at heart, a farmer and a gardener. Easy testament to this is the stunning home he ďuilt and liǀed in with his wife Nancy, the arƞully landscaped property, his ridiculously aďundant garden and his ďeloǀed &riesian horses. He was an enthusiasƟc and animated teller of tales, and loǀed a good pracƟcal ũoŬe. /n his younger years he was an accomplished athlete, excelling in running and soccer. When he moǀed up to the Shuswap he earned the nicŬname ͞Hot-foot Postma͟ ďy running circles around his opponents and proliĮc goal scoring. He remained acƟǀe, Įt and ďusy right up unƟl the onset of his cancer. He ďrought his family to 'ardom >aŬe in 1976. Here, he helped create the same strong community Ɵes that deĮned his youth. He was always willing to help any in need, a generosity of spirit that was paid ďacŬ tenfold ďy his friends and neighďours during his long months of treatment in Vancouǀer. His life was too ďig and colourful to summarinje in these few sentences. Howeǀer his legacy of hard worŬ, easy play and generosity to family and friends will ďe long rememďered ďy all the many liǀes he touched. He was ďeloǀed ďy all of his siďlings. He is pre-deceased ďy his ďrothers Theo and Jappy, and oldest sister DieŬe. He is surǀiǀed ďy sisters ŬŬe, Jantsũe, 'eertũe, Sippy (Cecile) and Ņe, and ďrothers Huite (Harry), EpŬe and Zon. He will ďe deeply missed ďy his wife Nancy, stepdaughters shley and Tiīany, and his children Zoss, >ora and Kristy as well as his 7 grandchildren. Dass of ChrisƟan Burial will ďe held on Saturday June 21st at 10͗00 a.m. at St. Joseph͛s Catholic Church in Salmon rm with &ather 'eorge >a'range KD/ Celeďrant.  recepƟon will ďe held at noon at their ďeauƟful home that he ďuilt at η800 'ardom >aŬe Zoad. ll who Ŭnew and loǀed NicŬ are welcome. /n lieu of Ňowers, memorial donaƟons in NicŬ͛s name may ďe made to the BC Cancer gency or SalǀaƟon rmy.
