Boots and bling at Wine Down support his fellow humans. Terra Restaurant will be catering the event with an awesome southwestern style menu. It was a perfect match to create a perfect local event. The night will begin with wine tastings and grazing foods. Next will be a short set by Chad followed by more tastings, hospitality and socializing. To end the evening will be a final set by Chad as well as autograph signing. “The concert is being held in the barn which has outstanding acoustics and atmosphere,” comments Lisa. “This is a great chance to have an intimate evening with Chad as well as Harper’s Trail.” This event is all in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, which mean 100 per cent of the money raised, will be given to the organization. “There has been tremendous community support for this event. People have been asking how they can be involved,” Lisa says. “Also the ticket sales are really picking up. The hope is that we can make this an annual event and bring in a different artist each year.” If you would like to be a part of this intimate evening of great eats, tasteful wine and great music, get your tickets at Harper’s Trail Winery at 2720 Shuswap Road, or the Heart and Stroke Foundation office at 729 Victoria Street. This is said to be one the major events of the summer. Ashley Demedeiros

In support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation, the night of Saturday, June 28 will be an evening of sipping and savouring, featuring an up close and personal performance by Canadian country superstar Chad Brownlee. Harper’s Trail Winery, located a 2720 Shuswap Road, is the host of the Heart and Stroke Foundation’s first annual Wine Down event. This event is set to start at 6:00pm and will offer a unique and fun night for all who attend. Lisa Verity, the Special Events coordinator at the Heart and Stroke Foundation, is thrilled about the fast approaching event. “This is a first time for this office and for Kamloops to host an event like this,” comments Lisa. “We have brainstormed about this all year and wanted to do something that would be around an entertainer.” They got the inspiration for a wine, dine and live music event based on the concert series in the Okanagan that are always popular and successful. Harper’s Trail was the perfect choice because they are a local winery, which uses their own grapes, plus it has a country feel with its horseshoe logo and the ranching area that they are located in. “It was natural to bring in a country singer,” adds Lisa. “They (Harper’s Trail) were super excited to work with the Heart and Stroke Foundation.” Also Chad Brownlee is a philanthropist who is always looking for ways to

Some useful camping tips When using a public campground, a tuba placed on your picnic table will keep the campsites on either side vacant. Get even with a bear who raided your food bag by kicking his favorite stump apart and eating all the ants. Old socks can be made into high fiber beef jerky by smoking them over an open fire. When smoking a fish, never inhale. The best backpacks are named for national parks or mountain ranges. Steer clear of those named for landfills.

You’ll never be lost if you remember that moss always grows on the north side of your compass. You can compress the diameter of your rolled up sleeping bag by running over it with your car. A two-man pup tent does not include two men or a pup. A potato baked in the coals for one hour makes an excellent side dish. A potato baked in the coals for three hours makes an excellent hockey puck. You can start a fire without matches by eating Mexican food, then breathing on a pile of dry sticks.

echo stargazer GEMINI (May 22-June 21) Something you thought resolved is doubling back on you again. Maybe you didn’t have all the facts in May when you set it aside.  Now new information is causing you to look at it again. CANCER (June 22-July 22) The Full Moon over the weekend may cause you to witness a snarl between your spouse/partner and a family member. Take a deep breath and walk away. If you attempt to help, someone may turn on you. Perhaps you can help clean the wounds afterward. LEO (July 23-Aug 22) You are in the flow of things now. There are few who would stand in your way. Friendships, partnerships and other social relationships are cooperative and even helpful to your goals if you need that. You will likely find yourself a leader of one or more groups of peers. VIRGO (Aug. 23 -Sept. 23) There is an upcoming shift of Mercury moving back into your tenth house of career and life direction. There may be a decision or a plan that you abandoned last month that is popping up all over again. You are called to reexamine the situation one more time. This could be as simple as a piece of paperwork that has been sent back for your review. LIBRA (Sept. 24 -Oct. 23)  This is not the best week for mechanical objects. Breakage or failures are highly possible. Your reflexes are strung too tightly so make an effort to relax muscles and concentrate on steady, but consistent forward motion. This is the advice whether driving the car or running. SCORPIO (Oct. 24 –Nov. 22) Necessary expenses (those not of the “fun” type) may develop this week. If not that, you could be just having a little blue mood. It is one of those times when we operate better in solitude. This is an existential dilemma that everyone encounters now and then. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23 -Dec. 21) You want to move forward, but something is holding you in place. You may be barely conscious of it or have trouble putting your finger on what it is exactly. One clue is that the problem holding you back is a secret that has been handed down through your family. 10pm Week • 259 Road CAPRICORN (Dec.Open 22.-‘til Jan. 20)7 Days Youraenergies are Tranquille high and you can complish a great deal of work now. Hold in mind that you are the one with the energy, so don’t critique others if they can’t or won’t match it. Avoid antagonizing those in power during this period or you may lose a battle, even if you deserve to win.  Walk away from critics who don’t know any better. AQUARIUS (Jan. 21 -Feb. 19) For any number of reasons, circumstances may leave you out of the social loop this week.  Astrologically this is a time for self-reflection and not self-condemnation.  Having a quiet week is appropriate at this time.  Don’t turn this into a negative belief about yourself. PISCES (Feb. 20-Mar. 20) Your intuition and creative energies are high right now.  But something keeps you from allowing the muse to manifest through you. Is it fear of being wrong? As long as you are not trying to prove yourself better than others, you can allow a pure expression of the muse. ARIES (Mar. 21- April 20) A project begun in the previous winter is now reaching a culmination point. If you have handled all the details along the way, the outcome will be supportive to your sense of self-esteem. It is possible your efforts have threatened the powers-that-be. TAURUS (Apr. 21- May 21) You may be taking a sober look at one or more relationships. Even the very closest friends cannot know each other from the inside. Sometimes our energy is too low to be there for one another.
