Reserves used to cover city deficit RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

“No one could predict the interest market last year.” — Bob Spiers off the deficit would have been taxation, but that would have translated into a 3.5 per cent hike. “There’s no alternative,” said Spiers, of using the RCMP reserves. Other factors responsible for

the shortfall were casino revenues coming in under budget and the hotel room tax not being implemented last year. “We can’t operate in a deficit and we needed to cover it,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert, saying that Vernon isn’t in a unique

The financial markets weren’t good for the City of Vernon. Council has dipped into the police reserves fund to cover an $851,000 operating deficit primarily because of a lack of interest revenue in 2009. “No one could predict the interest market last year,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. lnterest revenues for 2009 were below budget by $1,017,496 due to low returns on governmental bonds and low rates of return on overnight bank deposits. The other option for paying

situation because of the recession. “All municipalities and regional districts have similar issues. When the economy slows down, extra revenue dries up.” Coun. Shawn Lee believes it was appropriate to tap into the police reserves to pay off the deficit. “We used money that we’d already received (through taxation),” he said. Lippert also supports use of the RCMP reserves, but suggests a specific fund should be established to cover any future deficits.

The call of nature is being added to the City of Vernon’s agenda. Council was told Monday that there is a considerable need for public toilets downtown. “People do need access to washrooms,” said Annette Sharkey, with the Partners In Action committee which has been researching the matter. “It’s part of a safety Sharkey plan and a health plan.” Currently, public washrooms are available at the library when it’s open and the Upper Room Mission has facilities for its clients. The committee has determined there’s a need for public washrooms to accommodate tourists and residents who are shopping. “The homeless/street population ideally requires access 24 hours to maintain health and avoid public defecation and urination,” states a report to council. Bar patrons have also been identified as a target group to avoid public urination. A number of other communities have been reviewed to see how they handle public washrooms. Kelowna has facilities near the waterfront but there is limited access during the winter, while Kamloops has public washrooms in its cultural centre/museum. New York City has introduced 20 pay toilets, while Grand Rapids, Michigan has installed portable toilets for the homeless in a parking lot. “There could be public washrooms in future downtown planning,” said Sharkey. “They would be for residents, tourists and people living on the street.” The committee is researching grants that could see people at risk involved in constructing the washrooms or decorating them. “If you make the washrooms a space of beauty, you are less likely to have vandalism,” said Sharkey. The cost of building washrooms is also being investigated. “We are looking for partnerships to keep costs down,” said Sharkey.

Armstrong man arrested in bust Morning Star Staff

A North Okanagan man is one of two people arrested following a cocaine seizure in Calgary last week. Members of the RCMP drug section made a three-kilogram seizure in the city on March 3 after executing search warrants on two vehicles and in a Calgary hotel room. Police speculate that if sold at the gram level, the seizure represents the removal of 3,000 units of cocaine that would supply 3,000 heavy cocaine users on the street for a day. Anthony Patrick Hudema, 36, of Armstrong, is charged with two counts of possession for the purpose of trafficking, and Trisha Kasawski, 26, of Calgary, is charged with one count of possession for the purpose of trafficking. Both have been released on bail and are due back in Calgary provincial court Monday.

Dear Realtor Mike, Why would I get a home inspection done if a property disclosure tells me what I need to know about the condition of the home and property? Answer: A property disclosure reveals the major changes made to, or current problems with the building and systems known to the present owners. A home and property inspection is more

detailed and goes beyond the knowledge of the owners. It can reveal areas of concern from the distant past and those that will need to be addressed in the future. The inspector may even suggest when repairs will need to be done and how much you can expect them to cost. With this information you can make a more informed decision about the value of a home. If excessive deficiencies are found you can re-negotiate your offer or walk away from it.

Clubhouse future debated RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Opinions are divided over the future of a highprofile piece of property in Okanagan Landing. On Monday, Vernon council endorsed two possible options for the city-owned Lakers Golf clubhouse on Cummins Road — sell the property for residential development or make it available to a non-profit organization as part of a land transaction. “Both of those options will go to the public for input,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert referring to the waterfront neighbourhood centre plan review. However, some council members have already decided what they want to see there. “I think there is public support for a non-profit group using that building,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. Coun. Bob Spiers, though, wants the site sold for development, and says use of the building by a service club would be a mistake. “We’ve gone through that before,” he said. The previous council attempted to turn the

clubhouse over to the Elks so the city could acquire the Elks hall downtown, but Cummins Road residents protested over noise and traffic and the plan was abandoned. “The residents of the day did not want that down there,” said Lippert. Coun. Patrick Nicol voted against both options put forward by staff because he wants the clubhouse demolished. “It’s been used as greenspace and it should be kept as that,” he said. “Forty or 50 years from now, people will thank those that did it.

Police issue private vehicle sales warning Morning Star Staff

Falkland RCMP are sending a reminder about private vehicle sales following an incident in the community over the weekend. Police were alerted by a Salmon River Road resident Sunday at 10 a.m. that a silver Ford Escort had crashed on the road edge of his property. The vehicle had no licence plates, and, upon investigation, police discovered the vehicle was uninsured and had been sold by the last registered owner in June of 2009. The vehicle had been rolled but was reasonably intact Cpl. Peter Dionne, of the Falkland detachment, said the investigation is continuing to locate the lawful owner of the vehicle, as it has physical indicators of being stolen. “We’d like to advise the public that when sell-

ing vehicles privately, the transfer document must be completed in its entirety, and signatures of the seller and purchaser, vehicle mileage and date are essential,” said Dionne. “There is a copy of the carbon forms for the seller to keep which acts as a bill of sale, and which you may require if the purchaser fails to register the vehicle.” If the vehicle was abandoned or found causing environmental damages (such as leaking fluids into the ground or a watercourse), the seller could be held liable for costs of removal, storage or remediation if unable to prove whom they sold the vehicle to. Dionne said the vehicle transaction should be completed at an insurance office, and the transfer completed as a condition of the sale of the vehicle.

A home in Lavington has been posted under the District of Coldstream’s drug bylaw following the dismantling of a marijuana grow operation Tuesday. North Okanagan RCMP executed a search warrant in the 5600 block of Highway 6, and located 393 marijuana plants in various stages of growth. One man and three women at the residence were arrested. Police are still investigating, and charges are expected at a later date. Because the house has been posted under the bylaw, it can’t be lived in or rented until it is brought up to standards.

Band to maintain logging blockade RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Immediate plans for logging Browns Creek are on hold, but a protest camp will remain in place. The Okanagan Indian Band insists a blockade will not end although Tolko Industries has delayed harvesting at the area on the west side of Okanagan Lake. “The camp isn’t going anywhere until we hear more from Fabian Alexis the courts and then we’ll go from there,” said Chief Fabian Alexis. Tolko claims operating plans have been pushed back because of the band’s actions. “The OKIB’s continuing blockade, in defiance of B.C. Supreme Court orders, has caused us to miss our operating win-

dow for winter harvesting operations on frozen snow conditions,” said Mark Tamas, woodlands regional manager. “We now do not expect to harvest in the area until the snow has melted.” The band established camps at Browns Creek in October to gather archeological evidence and prevent Tolko from logging. A judge ruled in January that the band can’t interfere with harvesting. But the camp was re-established three weeks ago because of concerns logging may negatively impact the community’s watershed. A judge has supported Tolko’s bid to have the protest removed, but the band will appeal that decision Friday. Tamas expects fieldwork outlined in Tolko’s archeological plan will proceed logging this spring. “In addition to the 50,000 cubic metres of timber currently covered by the court injunction, we will also provide to both government and the OKIB our specific

plans for 2010 operations,” he said. “This includes the next group of approved cutting permits and other volumes impacted by the mountain pine beetle epidemic in the Browns Creek area.” However, Alexis claims logging will destroy the band’s watershed as well as cultural and spiritual values. “It’s already over-logged. Tolko could go elsewhere,” he said. Tamas insists the conflict must be resolved, and meetings are required so both sides can explore broader and longer term issues. “Throughout this dispute we have followed the orders of the court and we expect the OKIB to do the same when we return to logging as soon as ground conditions are suitable.” However, Alexis isn’t sure if meaningful discussions are possible. “It will take a little while to meet with them. We’re quite angry,” he said of his community.

Council changes rules for burning BRENT MUTIS

Everybody’s outlet store.

Morning Star Staff

A choice will soon be available to Coldstream farmers about when they burn their garden refuse and prunings. On Monday, council amended the bylaw on burning permits and will now decide annually when people will be allowed to burn. Though it doesn’t take effect immediately, there will be a time permitted in spring and another in fall. “It doesn’t limit burning. It just gives people a choice,” said Coun. Maria Besso. Prior to the decision, burning was allowed only between March 15 and April 15 each year. That span will remain in effect for now and council will decide later if a fall burning time will be given. After that, council will decide from year to year when the respective spring and fall burning times will be. There was some discussion on how much time should be allowed during each burning period. Coun. Gyula Kiss favoured two two-week spans so the total duration of burning through the year wouldn’t exceed a month. That is the direction council took, athough there is an ability to extend it if weather is not favourable during the two weeks. “If both spring and fall are going to be designated, it should be only two weeks (each),” said Kiss. But chief adminis-

“It doesn’t limit burning.” — Maria Besso trative officer Michael Stamhuis noted optimal burning situations may not be attained in a 15-day window. “The problem if burning time is two weeks is you can have periods where you cannot achieve the conditions necessary,” he said. “You may create that problem if you limit to two 15-day windows.” Speaking to council Monday, Coldstream resident Ted Relph pointed out that springonly burning often leads to poor air quality as it creates too much smoke because trimmings may still be damp. He preferred a fall

burning following the dry summer season. Farmers will have to consult the North Okanagan District to find out when the venting index is sufficient for burning. Other residents wishing to burn refuse must go to the District of Coldstream office and apply for a permit.

The call of nature

E

ven the most serious face in Vernon council chambers couldn’t help themselves. As soon as the word toilet was raised Monday, non-stop amusement was overflowing. Eyes were rolled, jokes were cracked. One person was even heard to say, “This is quite a movement.” But toilet humour aside, what council was discussing is a serious matter for anyone who has felt the call of nature while downtown — and that is the lack of public washrooms. In fact, the only faciliRichard Rolke ties available to the public are in the library, but that’s only when it’s open. And they don’t do you much good if you’re at the other end of downtown. So when the need arises, people are generally forced to hold it or find a merchant who is understanding, particularly when it comes to small kids. But most businesses aren’t set up to deal with the public that way, and even if they are, the facilities are for paying customers only. How would you like to be a tourist who is exploring downtown and dropping a few bucks, only to find that you’re flush out of options? Of course there is also the reality that Vernon has homeless residents. I can’t imagine they like having to go behind a dumpster (oh, wait those have been removed) or a tree, but some things can’t be put off forever. As a result, a health hazard is created for them and anyone else frequenting the streets. Obviously this natural function is something Vernon and all communities should have considered when they were originally being planned. But the situation was ignored for

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

decades, that is until now. Praise must go to the Downtown Vernon Association and the Okanagan Regional Library, both of whom have been on the frontline of the issue, the Social Planning Council and other participants in the Partners In Action committee. Research has been done on the extent of the problem and actions taken by other communities, whether it’s pay toilets or portable devices. Time has also been spent on the negative aspects of public facilities — prostitution, drugs and vandalism — and how to minimize them. Building and maintaining washrooms will come with a price but committee members are hoping government grants and partnerships will go along way towards offsetting the cost. Countless tax dollars have been spent revitalizing downtown Vernon over the years, and more is expected in the future. But decorative bricks and fancy benches are completely meaningless if people don’t feel welcome and comfortable, particularly during those inopportune times. Downtown’s image could be quickly tarnished if a tourist has to watch where they step. Partners In Action presented its report to council Monday and now the onus is on the politicians and bureaucrats to move ahead. And the timing couldn’t be better as a review of the city centre plan is underway. If downtown is truly going to be vibrant and livable, and meet everyone’s needs, then any future redevelopment of downtown must take into account washrooms. If that occurs, residents and tourists alike will be able to quote Forrest Gump as he ran across America. “When I got tired, I slept. When I got hungry, I ate. When I had to go, you know, I went.”

The Paralympic torch run began last week, but you’d be hard-pressed to find the kind of wall-to-wall news coverage and public adoration that blanketed the Olympic torch relay as it made its way to Vancouver for the opening of the 2010 Winter Olympics. The Paralympics have come a long way since the first Games that began on the same day as the 1948 London Olympics with only 16 competitors. But they’re still largely an afterthought. Most of the attractions that brought so much life into downtown Vancouver during the 2010 Winter Games will have been dismantled by the time the Paralympics begin on Friday. Instead of saturation live TV coverage we enjoyed for the two weeks of the Vancouver Games, we’ll be lucky to see daily highlight packages. One of the International Olympic Committee charters is to “act against any form of discrimination affecting the Olympic movement.” But by sanctioning a parallel Games for athletes with disabilities, they are essentially excluding those athletes to compete in the shadow of the Olympic Games. Paralympians train and compete as hard as able-bodied athletes. The stories they have to tell are as compelling, if not more so. Perhaps it’s time to take the integration of the Paralympics and Olympics to the next level, to run Paralympic events concurrently with Olympic competitions, house all the athletes in the Olympic Village together so they can learn from and inspire each other. After all, they’re all athletes, they’re all there to compete to the best of their abilities. — Burnaby NewsLeader

Cap and trade a no go

A

s we enter the second decade of the 21st century, I’m perplexed about how polarized both sides of the climate change/warming debate have become. Obviously, a lot of money, power, prestige, agendas and egos are at play. How else to explain why so much disagreement on ‘facts’ occurs unless one subscribes to the fiction that one side is evil personified and the other is pure good? I find it hard to accept, on evidence generated by computer modeling algorithms, that apocalypse is just over the horizon and the world, as we know it, is coming to an end. I find it equally hard to believe that humankind has been an overall good shepherd of our planet’s natural resources. Too many instances of environmental damage exist for all who can hear thunder and see lightning to subscribe to that. Stupendous changes Canadians have made to the face of our country are easily seen from an airplane window. Vast forestry clear-cuts; even vaster tracts of neatly laid out farm fields that have transformed our prairies into a quilt of sown and plowed agricultural land. Some very well educated people are urging governments to impose carbon caps and set up a cap and trade carbon exchange. This, I find quite worrisome and fraught with peril. When I try to translate what it means to my life here in Vernon, I conclude that I would need to make major changes to my lifestyle.

For instance, I live in an older but well insulated energy-efficient, singlefamily home on a large lot. Like most of Vernon, my neighbourhood is not very well served by public transit. As an individual, to meet the carbon usage reductions being demanded it seems to me that I would have to sell and move into a condo much smaller than my house and much closer to shopping and services. But even that would not suffice to make the carbon cuts demanded by the Carbon 350 protagonists. I would need to give up the joy I find in birding throughout my North Okanagan milieu except on foot or on bike; likewise, playing in a slo-pitch league that requires a weekly round trip to a game in Kelowna. I carpool for both of those activities now but that just doesn’t appear to be enough to meet the essential carbon usage reductions being demanded of me by the Carbon 350 activists. Guess I need to ski less at my local Silver

WORLD COMMUNITY We send our soldiers into Haiti to save people, to care for them and eventually rebuild their homes and infrastructure. Yet we send these same soldiers to kill people and reduce their homes and country to ruins. Afghanistan and Iraq, whose people are just as precious as those in Haiti. We have gone into these countries and others like them, maiming and killing their women and children. In fact, 90 per cent of war casualties are civilians, causing untold suffering. The big lie is not that we're there to help these countries but to take from them. For example, we are in Afghanistan, which produces heroin, to supply the west's need for liquid cash, and in Iraq for their oil wells, to keep the western style of over

Star ski resort too and sell the power boat that gives me so much pleasure. Thankfully, I’m not into snowmobiling or ATVing because those would have to go as well along with the jobs of those who build, ship, sell and service them. But, for global thinkers, I guess that’s just a drop or two in the ocean of their altruistic idealism. I don’t know about you, but I’m reluctant to make such drastic changes to my lifestyle. Besides, what carbon savings actually occur if someone else moves into my home or takes my spot on the slo-pitch team or buys my boat? Would my personal carbon savings not simply go to someone else to exploit? I agree. We all need to do better at reducing our impact on this planet. The question is how. I have difficulty seeing a government imposed carbon cap and trade system, however we tweak and twaddle it, being the answer. In fact, I see it as favouring losers over winners.

consumption going as long as possible. We are not there to liberate these countries or ourselves from terrorism. We create the terrorism by taking from these people what is theirs and what they do not want to give away, their resources, their way of life, their religious traditions, which if they need changing, must be accomplished from within. We are quick to blame el Qaeda or the Taliban, trying to protect its people from U.S.-style capitalism and its inevitable arrival. The war on terror is a pretext for bringing about loss of liberties for the American people, and as it unfolds, the loss of Canadian rights to protect its sovereignty. We are sending our lovely young men, our

A business that shrinks because no one wants to buy its products or services and eventually goes bankrupt or gets taken over and then closed down gets rewarded for reducing its carbon cap as I understand the carbon cap and trade system to operate. Whereas, one that makes products in demand, is penalized by having to purchase extra carbon credits if it is unable to reduce its individual carbon cost per unit of product sufficiently; else-wise, by government edict, it is forbidden to grow! Does that make sense to you? I, for one, would not make willingly the drastic changes to my lifestyle that seems to be being asked of me under a carbon cap and trade regime. I would need to be forced and coerced to do so and I would be certain to express my displeasure at the ballot box. I think a lot of other Canadians would too. We need wiser heads to prevail and come up with solutions that are less draconian, that more directly address the environmental problems that are arising from our changing climate problems. Jumping on a poorly understood carbon cap and trade bandwagon and taking a damn-thetorpedoes approach whilst whipping up media hype doesn’t contribute to workable solutions. The magnitude of what we are facing will take many different steps to solve. Carbon cap and trade enthusiasts are putting all their eggs into a pie-in-the-sky panacea. Such naivety must be resisted.

beloved sons to wars, not to protect people, but to uphold the western empire, which, like all empires, is protecting its own agenda and has no thought for the suffering caused by the wars it has initiated. Thankfully, the world's people are waking up to the need to "Love thy brother (neighbour) as thyself." What we do to others, we do to ourselves. The outpouring of love and caring for Haiti is on an unprecedented scale and shows the world is now a community. And we will not go to war with each other but love and support each other in a way that will finally bring the love and connection with each other that is the essence of all authentic religions.

Armstrong draws fire from Hansma ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Spallumcheen’s mayor is upset over a letter sent by the City of Armstrong to the North Okanagan Regional District in regards to 911 fire dispatch service. In its letter, signed by Mayor Chris Pieper, the City of Armstrong advised NORD that it had no problems with the City of Vernon’s wish to withdraw from the service. Vernon has said it wishes to provide its own Will Hansma fire dispatch service, currently a function held by NORD. The letter states that Armstrong wishes to remain in a partnership with the remaining Chris Pieper participants in the service, and requested NORD investigate the best option on the city’s behalf, “keeping in mind that cost effectiveness is only one aspect of the review.” Armstrong also requested that a local service provider, such as the City of Vernon, be included in the review. However, Spall Mayor Will Hansma believes his council should have been consulted before Armstrong sent off the letter to NORD. “This should have gone to a joint council discussion on this topic,” said Hansma, his voice rising in anger. “Jointly, and collectively, we have one fire dispatch area and one fire department. For one partner to go out and do this without discussion, that’s what’s wrong.” The letter led to plenty of discussion at Spallumcheen’s regular monthly council meeting. Coun. Todd York said Armstrong’s letter was pretty clear, that all they wanted was to say it was OK for Vernon to withdraw and for NORD to provide options for all the remain-

ing partners. Hansma maintained he wanted flexibility to deal with the City of Vernon if they are allowed to withdraw from the service. Coun. Ralph Leyenhorst asked why he would want to be part of this service. “Why not contract it out on our own?” he said. A motion was made for the Township of Spallumcheen to write a letter similar to Armstrong’s, which passed by a margin of 4-3 with Hansma and Councillors Andrew Casson and Christine Fraser opposed. Told about Hansma’s opinion, Pieper said he was fine with the mayor’s statement. “We only have joint meetings once every three or four months, and this is how Armstrong felt. We were just giving direction, not going against Spall or anything like that,” said Pieper. “We we want to stay as a NORD fucntion so there’s not eight or so different contracts with the City of Vernon. “We all have to stay together on this. That’s what my letter tried to say.” The City of Vernon has written NORD and all local municipalities for permission to leave the fire dispatch service. Mayor Wayne Lippert has said the current regional function, which is contracted out to the city to provide, does not meet technological standards for large cities. Lippert feels a city function would be enhanced, and would not increase costs for the other communities. Pieper believes fire dispatch services shouldn’t be broken up between Lumby, Coldstream, Armstrong, Spallumcheen, Enderby and the regional district. “Armstrong and Spallumcheen, at the end of the day, have to be the same no matter what, whether it’s Vernon providing the service or someone else,” said Pieper. The topic of fire dispatch will be discussed at the next ArmstrongSpallumcheen joint committee meeting March 25.

Moving expenses can be a big tax deduction. To qualify you must move at least 40kms closer to your new job or 40 kms closer to a new work location with an existing company. Your move must be considered to be a permanent move - not just a job that is a short contract and then you plan to return home. If your move qualifies here are some of the expenses you can claim: Moving van costs, travel & meal costs for yourself and family, cost of selling your home i.e. legal fees and real estate commission among others. You must have all receipts for hotels, moving vans and house sale etc. Receipts for meals and travel are not necessary as CRA provide a simplified calculation for this purpose. Most important is a letter from you employer stating that whether or not you were reimbursed for your move – if “yes” then the $ amount must be stated and also the date you started work. Moving expenses can also be allowed for selfemployed people. Moving expenses can only be deducted against income earned in the new work location, but can be carried forward to be applied to a future year if they cannot all be used in 2009. Come in and see our tax specialists and they can advise you on this and other deductions.

Settle in and enjoy the comforts of a beautiful lodge-styled home on Sakinaw Lake. This restful and peaceful setting is sure to provide a lasting getaway memory!

Falkland bridge set ablaze

Vernon Butcher Shop

Morning Star Staff

An alert resident with a keen eye prevented a North Okanagan bridge from going up in smoke. RCMP and the Falkand Fire Department were advised by a resident of a fire burning on the Falkland Road bridge over the Salmon River at around 8 a.m. Sunday morning. “A pile of papers had smouldered in place, apparently drawing air through the gap in the bridge decking, and charring the planks,” said Cpl. Peter Dionne, with the Falkland detachment. Dionne speculated that materials being transported for disposal may have fallen from a vehicle with some embers within, resulting in the fire on the bridge. No suspicious activity in the area had been reported. The fire department extinguished the fire, and

“A pile of papers had smouldered in place.” — Peter Dionne Argo Road Maintenance crews completed bridge repairs in short order. Falkland RCMP are requesting anyone with information on the matter to contact the detachment at 250-379-2311 to clarify the cause and resolve concerns raised as a result of the incident.

Okanagan artists recognized with awards Vernon painter Joan Heriot receives special tribute at presentation JIM ELDERTON Special to The Morning Star

T

wo months ago artists throughout the valley were nominated for an Okanagan Arts Award. Mounted by the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan, this is for many North Okanagan residents a little-known competition, due perhaps to the mistaken belief that only Kelowna residents are eligible. Now in its third year, the ceremony grows in importance as more people discover it, and the calibre of submissions increases. After reviewing 25 carefully compiled presentations, the selection process culminated in the awards ceremony Thursday in West Kelowna. Of the 10 categories originally planned, only eight were given. Four of the nominees were from the North Okanagan. Potter Bob Kingsmill was there for visual arts, Devon Muhlert was up for literary arts, while Vernon author and songwriter John Lent (now the Okanagan poet laureate) and painter Joan Heriot were both nominated for lifetime achievement. Preceded by a reception and silent auction, the ceremony was introduced by arts council president Sharon McCoubrey. The presentations were interspersed with performance and visual displays. Each award (to be retained by the winners) was the bronze sculpture Unity, designed by Jeanne Bates. Winners included Louise Sjoquist (theatre), Tanya Bakala (dance), Gary Pearson (visual arts), Leroy Wiens (arts educator),

Anna Jacyszyn (music), Judy La Fontaine (supporter of the arts), Nancy Holmes (literary arts), and Geert Maas (lifetime achievement). However, the only North Okanagan winner was Joan Heriot, who was given a special tribute award in recognition of her contribution to the arts. Joan Heriot Heriot, 99, was unable to make the ceremony. Instead she’ll receive her award at the Vernon Performing

Arts Centre April 26 at the next screening of the film Sveva, Prisoner of Vernon, hosted by the Caetani Cultural Society. An artist in her own right, Heriot was extremely important in Sveva Caetani’s later career. As an artist colleague living in an apartment at the Caetani House, she was Sveva’s greatest supporter, constantly on hand to assist, even while finding time to paint her own pictures. And in 2007, Heriot was one of 12 women artists selected for the Caetani calendar. Her medium was pastels, and her paintings were highly in demand. She maintained two waiting lists –– those who’d never managed

to acquire one, and the B-list for those who had already had. The Vernon Public Art Gallery holds 10 of her works in its permanent collection, and a retrospective exhibition was mounted in 2007, accompanied by a colour catalogue of the 33 works displayed. Her paintings are noted for their skies. “Clouds and cloud effects and the play of light on fields and hills, or surfaces generally, fascinate me,� said Heriot. Jude Clark, guest curator for the exhibition, added: “Many of the skies in Heriot’s landscapes are dramatically defined, epic in feeling. Strong contrast between light and dark further develops this sense of magnitude.� More recently, a nature centre has been established in Heriot’s name at the Mackie Lake House, in recognition of her 30 years in England as a lecturer in zoology and entomology for London University at Brighton Technical College. There, her excellent drawings became a natural prologue to her later career as an artist in Canada. The brief history of the Okanagan Arts Awards raised concern that, once Olympic sources of funding had ceased, the competition might disappear. However, organizers have said that its future is assured. Certainly its survival through the recession is cause for congratulation, and offering it to artists throughout the Okanagan vastly increases its status. The arts council chooses a different location each year for the awards ceremony. With news of the Heriot presentation in Vernon, let it be hoped that future nominations from the North Okanagan will increase, especially if the arts council can be persuaded to bring the event to the Performing Arts Centre.

Arts centre stirs up support with handmade bowls of Irish stew Vernon Morning Star

The Vernon Community Arts Centre is feeling the luck of the Irish with its Empty Bowl fundraiser on St. Patrick’s Day. The event features a selection of hand-made clay bowls, that were spun on a pottery wheel and/or hand-built by local artists, personalities and celebrities. At last count, there were 189 bowls that will be filled with homemade Irish stew (meat and meatless) and sold at the inaugural fundraiser to help the arts centre with its studio programs. “Due to recent cut-backs to

arts funding in B.C., the Vernon Community Arts Centre is being proactive in attaining alternative funding from untapped sources,� said VCAC program director Christine Kashuba. “The idea is that patrons can pick out their favourite bowl, have lunch, and then take their new bowl home.� Bowls will not be for sale prior to the event and tickets will not be available ahead of time. This is a first-come, firstserve event and is open to everyone. “Special thanks to everyone who made a bowl and to our volunteers who are helping to make the event happen,� said VCAC assistant adminis-

Arts

Club gets a dose of Jazz Café DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society

If you love fabulous jazz vocals, be sure to catch Anna Jacyszyn and the Jazz Café Band Saturday at the Vernon Jazz Club. A winner of a 2010 Okanagan Arts Award in the music category, Jacyszyn describes herself as “a true jazz chanteuse whose songs echo the likes of Billy Holiday, Sarah Vaughn, and Julie London.” “We perform jazz music: cool contemporary takes on classic jazz music like Duke Ellington, Cole Porter, and Billy Strayhorn,” she said. Jacyszyn’s recent sizzling CD Lush Life reflects this repertoire, including standards such as the Strayhorn-composed title track and Ellington’s I Got It Bad (and That Ain’t Good). Her own original tunes also fall within the genre, like Sprinkle of Hope, a witty, Cole Porter inspired reflection on romantic relationships. Jacyszyn began her career in England singing backup for dance music artists such as Yazz, Marshall Jefferson, and Cher, but her true love has always been jazz. As a jazz soloist, she has toured the world, performing for VIPs at two FIFA World Cups, the 2005 British Oscars (BAFTA) after-show party, and a birthday party for the Sultan of Oman’s nephew. Closer to home, Jacyszyn founded the Jazz Café, a monthly speakeasy at the Black Box in Kelowna voted Best of the Best in Okanagan Life Magazine.

Anna Jacyszyn The Café, featuring the Bernie Addington Quintet and guest artists, is a huge hit, with full membership and soldout shows. Jacyszyn was recently honoured by Kelowna Mayor Sharon Shepherd with the Spirit of Kelowna Award for her contributions to music and charity work in the Okanagan. The Jazz Café Band is drawn from the cream of the Okanagan’s jazz crop, including Neville Bowman on piano and vocals, Bernie Addington on double bass, Craig Thomson on the sax, and drummer Martin Lord. With more than 20 years experience, freelance jazz musician

and recording artist Addington has played with everyone from Michael Bublé to Harry Connick, Jr. to Rita Chiarelli. He keeps busy writing his own original jazz tunes, accompanying many local talents around the Okanagan, and acting as musical director of the Jazz Café. Bowman is an accomplished jazz musician based in the Okanagan. He plays regularly with award-winning groups such as the Michael Garding Big Band, jazz trio Just in Time, and rock group Ten2Nine. Busy as a producer, musical director, and programmer, Bowman plays the title role in the upcoming Kelowna Actors Studio presentation of Sweeney Todd. He also orchestrated the music. A music educator, Thomson teaches jazz and concert band at Mount Boucherie Secondary School. He is also coordinator of the B.C. Interior Jazz Festival, and an active gig and session musician, playing funk, jazz, blues, R&B, and everything in between. Lord has 30 years

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) You love joint activities, and this day could be filled with more than a few of them. However, one in particular will hold special advantages for you and another party. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Be flexible if you can because a good friend will want to partner with you at this time for a brief but unique purpose. Your pal will be one in whom you place considerable trust. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) There are some strong possibilities that you will use your ingenuity and resourcefulness to generate income from some rather unusual sources. It could be a rare opportunity. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) This could be an exciting day for many unattached Virgos, and you could be introduced to someone with whom you’ll instantly click. You’ll find much to like in each other. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) You may finally put to rest a certain difficult task or assignment that has been giving you fits. It will be a big load off your back, but more important, it’ll be a big success. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) Your first inclinations are likely to be your best ones, especially with regard to social situations. Go along with any unusual ideas for a get-together. It’ll be fun.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) It’s your nature to be happier with unstructured endeavors that allow greater flexibility. Something of this nature will take place with regard to your financial situation. CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Don’t be reluctant to discard an old, unproductive concept if something better pops into your head. The new idea will be an ingenious improvement. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) Although you might generate the desired returns, they might not come through the outlined route. However, who cares? All that matters is that the results are good. YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY In the year ahead, you are likely to become involved in two different kinds of interests or enterprises. Each might deal with things about which you’re familiar, but each will develop into far more than you ever dreamed possible.

Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes and weight gain. What can I do?

The Township of Spallumcheen wishes to advise residents that spring sweeping of winter sand will occur between March 15th and 19th, 2010 in the following areas:

A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

To facilitate the removal of winter sand please ensure that all parked vehicles are removed form the roadway.

Week recognizes importance of pharmacists Morning Star Staff

Pharmacists are available to help you manage your health, and can do much more than simply fill your prescriptions, says Health Services Minister Kevin Falcon during Pharmacist Awareness Week. “Pharmacists are a very valuable component of our health-care system, and can provide assistance from helping you manage a chronic illness like diabetes to giving advice on changing your lifestyle to prevent heart disease,” said Falcon. “With their recently expanded scope of practice, they can even give you your seasonal flu shot and renew your routine prescription.” This year, B.C.’s Pharmacist Awareness Week runs until Saturday, and British Columbians across the province are being encouraged to visit their local pharmacy and talk to their pharmacist to find out some other ways pharmacists can help them manage their health and prevent illness. Many pharmacies offer community clinics to help people suffering with chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes. “Each year the B.C. Pharmacy Association joins forces with our members to raise awareness about pharmacy in B.C.,” said Marnie Mitchell, chief executive officer of the B.C. Pharmacy Association. “Our aim this year is to let British Columbians know about the many ways pharmacists can make a difference to people’s health.” In October 2009, the province expanded the scope of practice of pharmacists to allow them – with additional training – to give injections for vaccines. To avoid unnecessary interruptions in drug therapy, they are also now able to renew most routine prescriptions for chronic conditions. These changes were made to increase patient

access and choice. Pharmacists can also play a role in helping to prevent illness. They are

able to provide advice and counselling on adopting and maintaining a healthy lifestyle

and give advice on safely taking multiple prescriptions. Many offer in-store blood-pressure

monitoring. For more information on how your pharmacist can help you

manage your health, or to find a local diabetes or asthma clinic, talk to your local pharmacist.

For more information on Pharmacist Awareness Week, go to www.bcpharmacy.ca/.

GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

For someone who has encountered so much success in the last year, Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Josh Dueck shows an incredible knack for staying grounded. A freeskier at heart, one of Dueckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s greatest strengths is his ability to not get caught up in the hubbub of competition. Instead, he maintains a firm grip on what drew him to the slopes as a youngster. Over the Christmas holidays, the 29-yearold could have easily taken a break from his hectic para-alpine ski training schedule, but instead he headed out for a back-country powder shredding session with friends. For Dueck, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not work, it is bliss. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a pretty loyal freeskier. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s equally important to me in terms of training and growth. You never want to forget about your roots,â&#x20AC;? he said. The last year and a bit have pretty much been of the storybook variety for Dueck, starting with his marriage to Lacey Munger, who he calls his â&#x20AC;&#x153;best friend and number one supporter.â&#x20AC;? Shortly after that, he claimed the 2009 IPC (International Paralympic Committee) downhill world championship for the sitting category last February in Korea. He went on to win the IPC world cup downhill event at Whistler, and then defended his Canadian downhill title, which he has held for three straight years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a pretty amazing couple of weeks,â&#x20AC;? he grinned. In 2004, Dueck, then 23, suffered a devastating injury in a skiing accident while he was testing a jump for a national freestyle compeACA / PENTAPHOTO tition up at Silver Star.

Wagner boosts Bulls Morning Star Staff

Brock Wagner scored twice as the DCT Red Bulls bounced the ScotiaBank Blazers 5-3 in the North Okanagan Bantam Hockey Super League playoff final Monday night at Civic Arena. Russell Day, Josh Gosselin and Chad Lindenbach also scored for the Bulls, who won the regular-season title at 17-2-1. Krister Work, Brianna Wilson and Aaron Keryluke replied for the third-place Blazers, who were without top scorers Parker Gray and Kristian Currie. Justin Hiscoe contributed a pair of helpers.The teams were tied 2-2 after two periods. The Red Bulls took the tourist route to the final after bowing 3-2 to the North Okanagan Knights Friday night at Civic. Lindenbach and Day handled the DCT offence. Lindenbach pulled the hat-trick Saturday afternoon as the Bulls iced Denny’s Flyers 4-1. Day also scored, while Liam Curran, on a nifty tip of a Travis Webster pass, replied for the fifth-place Flyers. The Bulls got another Lindenbach hat trick as they gonged the Knights B.C.

Zone 2 rink nets gold B.C. Winter Games

Tyler Van Den Berghe is following in his father’s curling slider. The 14-year-old Coldstream skip led his Zone 2 Thompson-Okanagan rink to gold, upending the Zone 3 Styba rink of Langley 9-5 in an extra end at the B.C. Winter Games Sunday in Terrace. “After they tied it we just tried to stay calm and focus on another end to play,” said Van Den Berghe, backed by third Chad Kyllo, second Colby Nowlin and lead Tyler Young. “I was really nervous on the last shot (in the extra end), but just tried to keep my composure and stay concentrated.” Van Den Berghe is the son of Garry, who curled with Jeff Stoughton’s rink for 16 years, earning one world championship, two Briers and five B.C. titles. “We like to mix it up with lots of stones in play,” said Van Den Berghe. “We know we can make good shots and if we do, we believe we will do well.” Vernon’s Scott and Heather Kyllo also helped coach the Zone 2 girls to gold as well. Vernon area girls continued their domination in weekend biathlon action. Adding to a gold she picked up on Friday, Lumby’s Brittany Hammerl collected two more in senior girls super sprint and sprint events. Hammerl, 16, said she feels her strength is in shooting, and in shooting well, she reduces the amount of running (not enough snow for skiing) required. Her near flawless shooting boosted her above the pack. She hit 14 of 20 targets in the individual, and eight of 10 targets in the sprint. “I want to do good for myself… show myself that I can do it,” said Hammerl, whose parents coach at Sovereign Lake Nordic Ski Club. After earning bronze on Friday, Vernon’s Kate Curtis completed her medal set with silver in the junior super sprint and gold in the sprint. Thompson-Okanagan athletes put on a Nordic skiing clinic Saturday, taking eight of a possible 12 medals in the 400m free technique sprints on Saturday. Vernon’s Eric Byram earned two bronze medals,

grabbing third in both the Midget boys individual start classic and free technique disciplines. Marin Carruthers was seventh in the Midget girls free technique and helped Zone 2 girls team to silver in the 4 x 2-km relay. First time was a charm for Vernon rhythmic gymnast Megan Hamilton, whose expectations at her first-ever Winter Games was a fourth. Instead, the 10-year-old went out and pocketed a trio of gold medals, finishing first in provincial stream free individual, all around and individual rope competitions. She added a fourth in ball. “No, I didn’t expect to medal,” said Hamilton, who has been competing for only four years. Coldstream’s Samantha Scott hauled in gold in the rope event and was fifth in the provincial all around, while Vernon’s Kaitlyn Casperson and Jordan Pattinson were 14th and 16th respectively. Coldstream’s Isabel Wiseman was 21st. In the group 2-3 national stream event, Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics Club claimed gold. Vernon’s Noah Morrison earned gold in the boys slopestyle competition, while Logan Dobson was eighth. Dobson added a fifth-place finish in moguls. In short track speed skating, Enderby’s Alyssa Skaalid earned seventh in the 777-m juvenile girls event. She competed in three other events. In K1 alpine ski action, Vernon’s Matthew Kreutz was fifth in boys slalom and sixth in the GS. Amelia Smart was fifth in girls slalom, while Scout McWilliams was ninth. Armstrong’s Ravi Vliet ranked 19th in the girls slalom and 20th in GS. A pair of Coldstream girls, Mackenzie Barrie and Lisa Campeau, helped Thompson-Okanagan collect silver in girls hockey action. In ringette action, Melanie Wakutz and Megan Weatherill, both of Vernon, and Alanna Fox (Coldstream) and Alexis Fraser (Enderby) battled to a fifth-place finish. The Thompson-Okanagan finished second overall in the medal hunt total with 89 medals (33 gold, 23 silver, 30 bronze). Zone 3 Fraser Valley led the province with 103 medals (33 gold, 39 silver and 31 bronze).

8-1 Sunday. Brett Shaigec (2), Josh Gosselin, Connor Smidt and Day rounded out the offence. ScotiaBank shut down Salmon Arm Fuinch & Co. 9-0 Sunday at Wesbild Centre with Brenden Zupp scoring seven goals. Kenny Batke and Work added singles, while Gavin Opp earned three assists. Rodger Sewell made 24 saves for the win. The North Okanagan Knights Atom Development Team grounded the Port Moody Panthers 6-2 in Sunday’s consolation final of the South Okanagan Atom Fiesta Tournament in Osoyoos. Niklas Luttmerding and Brady Marzocco each earned 2+2, while Matthew Dolinar had 1+2. Dawson Boyce added the final goal. The Knights lost 1-0 to the Vancouver Thunderbirds in one of the best games of the tournament Saturday. The T-Birds scored with 1:40 left to send them to the final. Both goaltenders faced a lot of shots as Jayden Hunter was outstanding in goal for the Knights making numerous sensational saves.

Bantam girls roll berth to Stardom

Venom come up short

Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

They received medals and flowers after striking gold at the Youth Bowling Provincials Saturday at Lincoln Lanes. They did, however, have difficulty standing still as they were sized for shirts to wear at the National 4 Steps To Stardom Finals, May 1-3, in Gatineau, Que. “You couldn’t get them off the ceiling,” chuckled coach Len Egely, who guided the Vernon Bantam Girls (8-10-year-olds) entry of Megan Teagle, Raylee Bergen, Tess Nuyens and Jaelyn Cotter. The golden girls recorded a fourgame scratch total 2,242. Teagle rolled a 583, Bergen bagged a 566, Cotter earned a 552 and Cotter had a 541. Bergen rolled a sizzling 183 in the final game. “It was teamwork,” said Egely. “Nobody had a huge game and ran away with things. We built up more points each game. We were in third place going into the last game.” Egely, who spent the last six weeks guiding the girls, gave them all the credit. “People are asking me how I did it, but all I did was ask them to do certain things and they did them. They are a

great team.” Maple Ridge took the silver, 75 pins back of Vernon. Brechin Lanes of Nanaimo was third. In Junior Girls singles play, held in Kelowna, Erin Sakamoto won a silver medal with a five-game scratch total 1,004 (201 average). Vernon’s Junior Boys entry of Matt McCann, Kevyn Hoggard, Jonathan Grant and Matthew Christie won a bronze medal in Kelowna with a fourgame scratch score of 2,755. McCann was high man with 791, followed by Hoggard with 767, Grant with 624 and Christie at 573. Peggy Hoggard coached the boys. Lukas Erickson of Vernon just missed the medals in Senior Boys singles in Kelowna, rolling a five-game scratch score of 1,155 (231 average). Lincoln’s Combo Girls team of Amy Edwards, Kaylea Egldey and Dominique Dufault placed fourth with 280 points over their team average. They were coached by Barb Christie. Lincoln’s Senior Girls team of Tyra Hoggard, Lindsey Krause, Calyn Buresh and Kaitlyn Milsted placed fifth at 3,298 over four games. They were coached by Bill Blair.

A pair of early goals by Hailey Quiring and Colton Schaper-Kotter weren’t enough as the North Enderby Timber Venom bowed 9-4 to the Vernon Rebels in Novice ringette action Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Netminder Caenan Wisse worked tirelessly to stop the Rebel attack, however the shortbenched Venom ran out of steam. A pair of goals by Evan Koshure completed the NET attack. Ana Manton took a great cross-crease pass from Shelby Munk to supply the lone goal as the A. Jacura Trucking Junior B Vikings fell 6-1 to host Salmon Arm Sunday. The game stayed close for the first half, with Vernon trailing 2-1 at the break, but Salmon Arm stormed back with four unanswered goals in the second half.

Orphans ride upset streak Morning Star Staff

The R.E. Postill & Sons Orphans are playing like one big happy family in the Interior Hockey League playoffs. After placing ninth in the regular season, the Oprhans have advanced to the third round after surprising the fourth-place Re/ Max Rangers 6-2 Saturday night at Priest Valley Arena. The Orphans earlier in the playoffs stunned the first-place Teale Utility Canucks. Ryan Kurbis set the tone with relentless skating and scored twice on rebounds to give the Orphans an early 2-0 lead. Jamie Johannson and Chris Bradford each supplied shorthanded goals and finished with two assists apiece, while Grady Gare, with 1+2, and Joe Dolling completed the Orphan offence in front of sensational Jason Silzer (34 saves).

Rob Bauml added two assists for the Postill gang, who lost gritty forward Brad Sindlinger with a match penalty for spearing Rich Haldane during an altercation in the final period. Sindlinger will be suspended for at least three games. Tim Proctor and Shawn Bourgeois, on a penalty shot, replied for the Rangers, who will now try and come through the back door. In other action, Steve Ensing scored four times as the Alexanderâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Beach Pub Blackhawks knocked out the M&K Ready-Mix Bruins 7-4 Monday night at Priest Valley Arena. Liam Springinotic added 1+2 for the Hawks, while Brendon Caron and Brian Caron also scored. Corey Webb had two assists. Chris Church (2), Dave Schneider and Justin Baillargeon replied for the Bruins, who got

two helpers from Les Butler. The Blue Jay Concrete Hornets eliminated the Kal Tire Knights 7-4 Sunday night at Wesbild Centre. Trevor Keenan provided 2+2 for the Buzz, who got 1+3 from Darren Cecchini, 1+2 from Brandon Beday ans singles from Jesse Reed, Brent Bond and Blair Fernley. Deryck Irmen, with 1+3, Tyler Summerfelt, Steve Richter and Cody Watson scored for Kal Tire. The Knights had stayed alive with a 6-3 win over the Aquatico Bay Bar & Grill Sharks Saturday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. Irmen and Richter each earned 2+2, while Justin Myrhe added 2+1 for the Knights. Kyle Kinsman, Chris Fulgham and Ryan Robertson replied for the Sharks, who got two assists from Taylor Zoethout.

Stars clip Clearwater Continued from B2 Earlier in the day, the Knights played the Abbotsford Hawks to a 2-2 draw with Dolinar and Marzocco scoring for the Knights. The Lumby Stars were 3-0 heading into a Tuesday afternoon game versus Burns Lake at the B.C. Pee Wee Tier 4 Championships in Clearwater. Jayden Pedersen and Nick Stanhope each counted 3+1 as the Stars stuffed Clearwater Hawks 8-4 Sunday. Jagger Williamson and Dean Whitcomb each earned 1+2. Assists also going to Shale Williamson, Tyler Yule, and Keenan McDonald. Lumbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solid defence of Cody Bauml, Shale Williamson, Reid Hackett and Jagger Williamson kept the circling Hawks to the outside. In an early-morning opener, the Stars beat the Kelowna Rockets 6-2 in a penalty-infested game. Lumby capitalized on their power plays with Keenan McDonald and Logan Meier each getting a pair. Nicholas Stanhope and Dean Whitcomb each recorded 1+2. Goalie Jake Desilets made a timley save on a penalty shot in the win.

McDonald scored both goals as the Stars edged Windermere Valley Eagles 2-1 Monday night. Lumby meets the Arbutus Avalanche of Vancouver this morning. The final goes tonight. The Vancouver East Chiefs swept the Okanagan Rockets 2-0 in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League quarterfinal series. The Chiefs took the opener 6-3 Friday night at the Port Coquitlam Rec Complex. Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Colton Sparrow scored in the first, from Brett Mulcahy and Brandon Bruce, and Mulcahy scored in the second, from Richard Sabourin and Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Max Mowat. Bruce added a goal in the third period. On Saturday at Cam Neely Arena in Maple Ridge, the Rockets trailed 5-2 shortly after the start of the third period, but clawed their way back into the game on goals by Travis Blanleil and Mowat. An empty-netter with 34 seconds to play gave the Chiefs a 6-4 victory, and a ticket to the semifinals against the Prince George Cougars.

Journey to Successful Employment is an Aboriginal Alternative Learning Program that takes a different approach. Project coordinators Lorraine Denommee and Marilyn Evans, who both have extensive training and experience in education, spent five years developing the program, which addresses all ways of learning workplace skills. “The program takes a holistic approach and recognizes that everyone has a different learning style and some of these differences are barriers to employment,” said Denommee. The process starts with each participant doing an assessment to identify areas they need to work on, including literacy, communication, strengths and interests. The assessment tool used is the Structure of Intellect (SOI), which assesses 26 separate learning abilities. A plan is made for each participant to improve comprehension, memory, problem solving, evaluation and creativity skills. What makes the program different is the use of Integrated Practice Protocol (IPP) which involves visual, auditory and other sensory exercises to help develop skills like focusing and concentration. Participants also use Brian Gym movements to reduce stress and improve learning as well as working to improve literacy. An example of how the sensory training helps is a person who is having trouble reading because of the way they move their eyes across the page. This can be corrected by the training. A college placement assessment also helps identify gaps in learning. “Many of the participants are pleasantly surprised at how well they do with the assessments and it improves their self-confidence and self-esteem. They may

“All of the participants have a strong interest in their culture.” — Lorraine Denommee “They identify their strengths and goals and get a feeling of hope for the future. The Guiding Circles technique helps them find career paths.” Denommee said people who have not been able to learn in traditional ways have often developed strong coping systems,

problem-solving abilities and creativity to make their way in the world. “It’s amazing and uplifting to see them realize that they do have a lot to contribute. They feel empowered,” she said. The program is based on the Medicine Wheel, which has traditions that vary around the country but with some common themes of emphasis on the importance of the whole person, the family, community and spirituality. “All of the participants have a strong interest in their culture and the traditions of the Medicine Wheel. As you live the Medicine Wheel, it helps you to learn the tools you need,” said Denommee. Program participants are men and women ranging in age from 18 to 45 who

Club helps roses to bloom Editor’s note: Julius Topf fills in for regular columnist Fred Lyall this week. he landscape design for the original Vernon Hospice House in 2000 included a sizable garden bed along the south side of the main building. Our group, the Okanagan Gardens and Roses Club, Fred Lyall decided to undertake the placement of a rose display garden on that location. The project was largely spearheaded by club executives Fred Lyall and Bonnie Semeniuk who planned the planting layout and the selection of rose varieties. There was a problem at first with planting success due to hidden heavy soil compaction incurred during construction. (Vernon Swan Lake Nursery Land graciously donated necessary replacement plants.) The garden has turned out extremely well and is a pleasure for patients, staff

and visitors to view and enjoy the sea of beautiful blossoms conveniently from the wide sidewalk alongside the garden. Maintenance of the garden is performed by club volunteers on an ongoing basis during the seasonal calendar. At the end of March the frost covering is removed from the roses and spread out as surface mulch. Each plant is checked for possible frost damage as indicated by discoloured bark on the canes. The canes are cut off below the lowest frost burn above the next outward-facing bud. Also removed are weak, spindly growth and any crossing canes. The ideal end result is a plant with about six or seven well-spaced healthy canes. On the other hand, in the case of severe frost damage, the plant may need to be cut virtually to ground level, in which case new growth will readily come from the graft bud. Developing growth and proper structure is routinely checked at future visits and corrected as necessary. At about the middle of April a granular fertilizer is applied to the perimeter of each rose (above the feeder roots). The fertilizer formula used is 14-16-10, with a

total amount required of about 10-15 lbs. for the whole bed. (Okanagan Fertilizer of Enderby has generously donated the fertilizer.) Throughout the blooming period spent and faded, over-developed blossoms are removed (dead-heading) about twice weekly for neatness of appearance and to promote re-blooming. Cuts are made above the next major outwardfacing leaf or further down to correct the overall plant structure. Also monitored is the possible appearance of mildew on the foliage requiring an application of a fungicide spray. At the end of October the garden is prepared for winter rest and protection. All growth is cut down to about knee height and a heavy covering of fir bark is applied on and around each plant. (The fir bark mulch has been freely donated by Pryce Landscaping Products of Vernon.) Our club was pleased to receive mention by the Vernon Communities in Bloom Committee in their 2009 judging: “The judges found the (Hospice House) rose garden section especially attractive, with more than 70 varieties.”

hy is it that every time I head out of town with a full tank of gas I find gas prices lower in the neighbouring communities? For decades now, gas companies have targeted Vernonites to pay the highest prices in the valley, often even more than at the coast. Sunday we headed to Salmon Arm with a full gas tank only to find out that gas at their pumps was a full 9.9 cents cheaper than in Vernon! What is it with this continual gouging of Vernon users? Enough of my complaining. Today’s recipes have spring in mind because new spring produce is arriving in our supermarkets, albeit imported; and if that’s a problem for some, just save the recipes and use them in a month or so when our farmers’ markets will have ample supplies of local produce.

These include people who are doing manual labour and want a change as they get older, those who do seasonal work and want more security and those who have to work at two or more jobs to get by. Other participants want to get more education or do an apprenticeship in areas of specific aptitude and interest. Funding for the program comes from the Okanagan Training and Development Council, funded by Service Canada, which pays living, transportation, childcare and other expenses for participants while they are in the program, which consists of three months of classroom work and a three-month job placement. Duane Forrest and Randy Jones, employer outreach representatives, are working with employers in the community to develop the job placements. “The potential employers are excited about this program and they’re asking questions. They see this as a way to get employees who are ready to work,” said Forrest. The participants get an orientation of the work place and on-going support until they are settled in. The employee’s wages are paid for by the work placement and there may be a wage-subsidy after that period. “There is a match of skills and inter-

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder There is a French proverb that goes: Greedy eaters dig their graves with their teeth. Greedy bridge players dig their graves with their cards -- the wrong ones. This deal provides an example. How should South play in four spades after West leads the diamond queen? South might have rebid three no-trump to offer a choice of contracts, but he was worried North would pass with weak clubs. Here North probably would pass, and the successful play is the same as in four spades. The original declarer, after winning the first trick with his diamond king, cashed the spade

ace, dropping West’s queen. This should have sounded a warning bell, but South felt confident that West had played the queen from the doubleton queen-jack -- or had maybe even falsecarded from Q-J-x. Declarer continued with the spade king. When West discarded a low heart, South suddenly saw the error of his avaricious ways. He had to lose four tricks: two spades, one diamond and one club. South should have ensured his contract by leading a low spade from his hand at trick three. Here, East would win dummy’s 10 with his jack and return a diamond. Declarer would win on

MLS®

the board and play a spade to his eight. South would draw East’s last trump and concede only three tricks. Don’t overlook a safetyplay that will cement your contract.

GOT PAIN? Q: I’m in a lot of pain. How do I get rid of it and back to the things I like to do? A: Therapeutic doses of natural medicines are taken orally for pain relief and they are also injected at the site of pain. Medical laser therapy focused directly where it hurts delivers outstanding results. Back pain sufferers are ecstatic about our revolutionary treatments and gentle approach. Our pain program has a success rate of over 90%. You can experience major relief. Dr. Denise De Monte N.D. Dr. Tara Spearman, D.C. De Monte Centre Natural Medicine
