Barking dog alerts family to blaze ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Abbey the golden retriever is being hailed a golden hero. The pooch noticed flames rising on the porch roof of the McLeish Road rental property she shared with three adults and a cat Sunday night, and started barking. “When the dog started barking, a woman inside the home looked out the window and saw flames up on the roof of the porch,” said BX Swan Lake fire chief Bill Wacey Monday morning. “There was a man inside who had been lying down, but everybody was able to get out of the house.” The BX Swan Lake Volunteer Fire Department arrived at the scene shortly after getting the call at 8:40 p.m. Wacey was the second person on scene and stated by the time he got there, the fire had already burned through the roof, and the rental home was fully engulfed in flames. The home, built in the 1950s, along with its location, provided firefighters some tough challenges. “There were oxygen tanks and an oxygen-making machine in there, and propane bottles, we had challenges with that component as they exploded substantially three or four times,” said Wacey. “The fire spread out to a huge stand of cottonwood trees about 200 yards from the home, about 65 feet up and with the 50-kilometre an hour winds we had last night, we had fire spotting all throughout the pasture which was down below, along with hay barns and piles of hay. “We had a fire watch crew on all night watching for spot fires.” Susan Martinello owns the ranch property which housed the rental home. She and her partner, Doug Ackerman, were in their home when one of the tenants of the house came running up the

See related video at www.vernonmorningstar.com. driveway, screaming the house was on fire. Once they realized their tenants were out, Martinello and Ackerman turned their attention to their horses. “When you own horses, like we do, the first thing you think of is the barn,” said Martinello. “So we got two of our horses from the small barn, moved them up past the fire trucks and into the bigger barn.” All of the horses, plus the dog

and the cat, were uninjured by the fire. The man who was lying down in the home at the time of the fire, a man who had been battling some health issues, was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital, treated and released. According to Martinello, the three people inside the rental home were from the same family. “Our tenant lost her husband a couple of years ago, and her

mom and dad had just moved in with her temporarily a shorttime ago,” said Martinello. “She’s been in the house for about five years and she’s a great tenant.” While the rental house was insured, the contents, unfortunately, were not. “They’ve lost everything,” said Martinello. The three victims are members of Vernon’s Army Navy and Air Force Spitfire Unit #5, which is rallying behind its members.

The event is open to the public. Donations to the fund can be dropped off at the ANAF lounge. Wacey said Monday the cause of the fire has not been determined.

Vernon RCMP are investigating a major residential break-in. Police responded to a call on Sunday in the 2400 block of 45th Avenue after the owner discovered the two sheds in his backyard had been broken into, and more than $25,000 in equipment had been swiped, including a $21,000 ATV. “The owner reported that his 2009 CanAm Outlander 800RTX ATV, camouflage in colour, had been stolen along with all of the riding gear,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. Also taken were a Husqvarna chainsaw and a Honda generator. Police believe the theft occurred over the evening hours Saturday, and that more than one individual was involved. “There was likely a vehicle involved and they would have needed to carry everything to it,” said Molendyk. The file remains under investigation.

Surgeons share on-call duties ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Break a small bone in the North Okanagan and you could end up being treated in Kamloops. Vernon orthopaedic surgeons have sent a letter to emergency room physicians, stating as of April 1, call coverage for non-life-or-limb emergencies pertaining to orthopaedic patients will be shared between Vernon Jubilee Hospital and Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, and that switchboards at each of the hospitals will have the schedule of sites on-call. For life-and-limb emergencies, 24/7 coverage at both sites will continue. The matter is a dispute between the surgeons and the Interior Health Authority (IHA) over the Medical On-Call Availability Program (MOCAP). “Effective April 1, 2010, orthopaedic surgeons in IHA will no longer have a MOCAP agreement,” wrote the seven Vernon surgeons in their two-page letter. “IHA elected to cancel the Level 1 MOCAP agreement. Level II MOCAP coverage was offered and rejected by orthopaedic surgeons.” According to IHA background material, MOCAP is a provincial program between the BC Medical Association and the Ministry of Health that pays physicians for disruptions to their time off to make themselves available for potential consultation. This is in addition to their regular pay. IHA states that health authorities are provided funding from the ministry each year, and each year health authorities review MOCAP allocations. As part of that review, health authorities work closely with a MOCAP contract review committee to determine if current call groups remain appropriate to meet patient needs and operational goals. The Physician Master Agreement (PMA) has five designated levels of funding covered by the MOCAP contracts: ■ Level 1 – availability by telephone within 10 minutes, and available to be on-site within 45 minutes ■ Level 2 – availability by telephone within 15 minutes, and available to be on-site within 2 hours ■ Level 3 – availability by telephone within 15 minutes, and available to be on-site within 16 hours ■ Call Back – physician not on call, but is called in to provide a service ■ Doctor of the Day – provides hospital for a patient without a designated physician ($400/24 hours) Physicians are paid annual amounts for 24/7 coverage, according to IHA, as follows: Level one pays $225,000; Level two pays $165,000; Level three pays $70,000 per group; and call back pays $250 per call back.

For the Week of Apr 7th - Apr 12th, 2010 (or while quantities last)

“Level II MOCAP agreement implies assessment of patient within two hours of presentation in the emergency room,” wrote the Vernon surgeons. “This is not reflective of orthopaedic on-call responsibilities when dealing with life-or-limb emergencies.” The surgeons say the ER at VJH will be notified of dates of single-site coverage. During times when Vernon is “on-call only,” coverage for orthopaedic surgery for all patients from the North Okanagan, including the Williams Lake and Kamloops regions, will be transferred to VJH’s emergency room. “These patients will be triaged locally and admitted as required for their orthopaedic care,” write the surgeons. During times that it’s “Kamloops on-call only coverage for orthopaedic emergencies,” all orthopaedic patients arriving at VJH with non-life-orlimb-threatening injuries will be transferred to Kamloops. The letter does not say if the patients will be transferred by ambulance or need to make their own way to Kamloops. Life-and-limb emergencies include polytrauma patients, unreducable dislocations of major joints, knee dislocation, paediatric elbow fractures, femur fractures, compound fractures, fractures with associated neurovascula compromise, unstable pelvic fractures and pelvis fractures with vascular instability, and injuries associated with compartment syndrome. Attempts to reach both sides for comment prior to The Morning Star’s deadline were unsuccessful.

Produce Facts

Yes, that does say .99¢ each!

Curious about where your produce is coming from? In Canada retailers are regulated to label produce with country of origin, so how is it possible that a fruit or vegetable saying “BC Grown” could actually have been grown in a greenhouse countries away? In order to fuel the demand for seasonal produce in the cold Canadian months, some BC growers outsource greenhouses in warmer climates such as Mexico but still label the product as BC Grown. How can you tell the difference? Read the fine print! Look beneath the BC growers label for countries such as Mexico or China. If there’s no fine print, the product was grown at home!

News Snow readings show grim picture BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

Recent late-season snowfall gave a boost to the final weekends of some local ski hills but it isn’t doing much for the water supply in the Okanagan basin. Readings from April 1 indicated the snowpack is at 52 per cent of the average on data taken since 1970. That could mean harsh water restrictions for residents and potentially quite soon. “We’re looking at providing direction to the (North Okanagan Regional District) board,” said Al Cotsworth, manager of the Greater Vernon water utility. “It could go fairly quickly into stage two (two-daya-week) water restrictions.” The region needs a big favour from Mother Nature if the situation is to improve. “We did have, in the last week of March, some snow and our reading

The utility is also looking to experts for guidance on how to proceed. “This year, because of the low snow availability, we’re looking to hire some agriculturally knowledgeable people to look at what water is available and who is using what water they shouldn’t be.” Further water restrictions remain a possibility if precipitation doesn’t materialize. “If things don’t come through, we’ll have to go to one-day-a-week watering (stage three).”

Making a mess

G

reater Vernon politicians are spending considerable time ripping apart the parks, recreation and culture function but taxpayers’ interests are being left on the sidelines. Through an ongoing service review, elected officials from Vernon, Coldstream and the two electoral areas have identified common bonds but, more significantly, so-called differences. In the case of the city, it wants complete control over the Vernon Recreation Complex, saying that is necessary for improvements to occur. But while Vernon holds title to the complex, taxpayers from the other jurisdictions have pumped considerable dollars into capital works and operations over the last 30 years. Based on that, the actual question of ownership is fuzzy. And not only does the city want control, it wants Richard Rolke the other jurisdictions to continue paying towards upkeep. There would be, however, no say from those areas on how the cash is spent. Shockingly, Coldstream and BX-Swan Lake representatives appear willing to accept taxation without representation. It’s unlikely many Coldstream residents will be happy just forking over their hard-earned dough without having any meaningful input on the pool or other activities? Why would the district want to bow out now when it’s been a full partner at the table for three decades? Under the guise of being concerned about the financial burden facing his constituents, BX-Silver Star director Mike Macnabb won’t commit to anything. He says he’s more likely to give annual grants to the recreation complex or cultural amenities rather than having a firm line item on the tax notice. But there’s nothing that will force Macnabb

or his successors to keep handing over those grants, so ultimately the purse could be closed. That means the other jurisdictions could be left subsidizing anyone from BX-Silver Star that walks through the door. It’s also been suggested by both electoral area directors that the museum, art gallery and other cultural facilities benefit the urban core more than their rural setting. Beyond being just insulting, such views are wrong. BX residents do access the programs offered by these groups. The service review also finds all of the member jurisdictions splitting up parks assets. A handful would remain regional in focus, while others would revert to local control only, including Polson Park. The reality is boundaries aren’t going to stop people from using their favourite park. Why would we create unnecessary divisions, particularly when Greater Vernon residents have been collectively funding parks for years? If there is a need for more individual input on greenspace, tinker with the system but don’t throw the baby out with the bath water. One other sticking point is the City of Vernon maintaining ownership of Kal Beach and the adjacent parking lot, which are both in Coldstream. There appears to be no reason for the city to continue with this historic anomaly (can you imagine the outcry if Coldstream owned a park site in Vernon), unless city hall wants to sell the parking lot for development. All issues surrounding the beach and parking lot, including traffic, specifically impact Coldstream. The easiest solution would be for Vernon to turn the land over to Coldstream, and based on the city selling a downtown lot to Okanagan Regional Library to $10, the precedent has been set. Ultimately, no one can actually explain why the parks and recreation function needs restructuring, but one thing is firm — Greater Vernon residents will be left wading through the mess.

They predicted it would happen and when it did, Tuesday, there was likely celebration in some parts of Canada and concern in others. On the surface, the fact that the loonie passed the American greenback in value feels good. Our inferiority complex allows us to take great comfort in beating our southern neighbours, whether it’s a gold-medal hockey game in the Olympics or the value of our money. Go, Canada, go. But aside from the bragging rights and another boost to our self-image, there is also the real benefit when one travels south of the border. To Canucks who used to deduct 30 to 40 per cent from their wallet’s contents when visiting the States, this is a huge and welcome boost to our purchasing power. Some experts say the surge in the loonie’s popularity may even keep the Bank of Canada from increasing the lending rate any higher. All good stuff. But, alas, the increase goes both ways and makes trips to Canada for Americans more expensive, hurting our tourism industry, and makes our already beleaguered forestry and manufacturing sectors that depend on U.S. markets even more vulnerable. In fact, the tourism industry may face a double whammy if more Canadians choose to go stateside this summer in light of the loonies’ high-flying status instead of staying home and enjoying all this country has to offer. However, it’s too early to know if the loonie has staying power and how much its status will affect the economy in the long run. For the short term, as in for several minutes on Tuesday, let’s celebrate the fact that our loonie, like our hockey team, is truly golden.

An excellent hospital and staff

C

ontrary to popular belief ER staffs are a special blend like fine coffee. From bed pans to belligerent drunks, they treat all the same. I have been in this room many times and seen none turned away to date. We take for granted the things we do not see, smell or touch. We put our lives in the hands of nurses and doctors who are overworked, underpaid, as well as underappreciated. When was the last time you said thank you to the nurse who came and got you after an hour's wait to be looked at? What we do not see is one doctor and nurses are working as we speak. Remember the ones you are trying to rush are most likely the ones who will be helping you. Help them by helping yourself, the more you waste of their time, the more of your time you have wasted. Hospitals deal with pains, not pains in the butt. That's not to say they cannot help you;

FATE OF THE VALLEY It never ceases to amaze me. When are we, as a so called intelligent race, going to wake up? Intelligent, that is a laugh. From the U.S. border to Vernon all we can see is money to whack up more concrete and development with absolutely no consideration to our most valuable limited resource. We only see dollar signs and every year water becomes a bigger and bigger concern. Who cares, as long as we can make a buck in the short run? Who cares what destruction we leave for future generations of humans and the wildlife, plants, flowers, etc. we share this part of the planet with? Oh, I hear those who only can see their limited view — development is an inevitable that cannot be stopped. That is where they are most likely wrong. We were given the right to vote. We could make a choice to say enough is enough and vote for those who are intelligent enough to realize that in order not to destroy this jewel we call the Okanagan, we can stop the development. We could allow people to move here only by purchasing pre-exist-

I know they are willing; they have helped me more than once. We have an excellent hospital here with one of the best staffs of doctors and nurses. I have been in a few hospitals in the past year; bar none Vernon is the cream. These

ing housing or subdivided lands and balance ourselves with nature. We can, by our choice, protect the water resources for every generation that follows. Or we can continue to destroy this jewel with no regard to the moment we have today or to the future, all in the name and justification of the almighty dollar. You would hope we would choose to be leaders of sustainability and protection of this valley. Rather, most of us choose to remain, like the majority of the human consciousness, followers watching irreparable destruction while we sit back and watch until it is too late, so we can then point fingers and blame someone or something else for a mess we helped create. Sound familiar? It is a habit man has had for thousands of years. We think if we do not get involved we are immune to any responsibility of what happens. It is called playing the role of the innocent victim. Yet there is no excuse. We are all responsible for the fate of this valley. Your decisions when you vote and your personal actions will ultimately decide the fate of this jewel we call

people would die to save you, would you do the same? To all those, including me, who complain of the wait, another tag, a green card, a form, a desk here and there, the wait, one hour to two hours, then finally a smiling face, "come

the Okanagan. The only thing that limits a person is that person's limited beliefs. Our power of choice is immense. We can continue to justify, living in this moment with no regard to the future of the watershed and lakes in this valley, or we can learn to live in balance with nature's limits. Or, quite simply, we just pave concrete over every possible square inch of ground and drain our water supply to the point where it cannot replenish itself and ultimately and permanently collapses. The good news if that happens, we will have hundreds of miles of lakeshore we can develop with new houses. The bad news is that those with lakefront property now will be cast to second or third row from the lake. Who cares? Do you know it might take a half an hour of your valuable time to write a letter to one of our local representatives voicing your concerns. But who has that kind of time to waste these days? So do we continue to base our decisions in the selfish greed of our egos, only caring about what's in it for us? Or do we truly open our eyes

with me, please." Vitals are taken, a bed is readied, just for you. Your anger subsides. I feel I came close to dying from a seizure recently, then an ambulance showed up with smiles, thank you, guys. The next thing I knew, I was in the hospital with all the full resources being used to help me, the complainer. These professional men and women did not see me as a pain, but as their job to find out what happened. Even the funky, redshoed nurse. It made me smile when it was needed. I cannot thank the staff of Vernon Jubilee Hospital enough for their heart-felt care, concern and dedication that they give day in and day out. Thank you for helping me and from all the ones who still cannot find the words. John Hawkins

and understanding to base our decisions on what would be in the best interest of the people, plants and animals and all the creations of life that inhabit the valley? Whether we take action or not, ultimately each one of us decides the fate of this jewel we call the Okanagan Valley. Mark Sandberg CO-EXISTING In response to the letter regarding people gobbling up all the land with our urban sprawl at the animals' expense........pass me a bucket! The next time you are on a plane get a window seat and take a gander at the vast expanse of unused wilderness and land out there. Now - compare it to the very small pockets the horrible humans are occupying with annoying things like houses and schools and places of business (the nerve). Anyone with an ounce of common sense will see that God has created lots and lots of space for us all to co exist. Yes, sometimes adjustments have to be made and yes usually that gives man the advantage. So be it. We dominate over them.........just like your little let-

ter points out about thousands of years of natural instinct. It goes both ways. I wish these greeny elites would give their heads a shake and get over themselves! Anne Ellis

EXPOSED! “Regular Joe” Plumber & Wife Speak Out and Reveal the Raw Truth About That Canadian “Multi-Millionaire,” Darren Weeks, and his How to Get Rich in BC Seminars.

Brian Lauer a “Regular Joe” This guy, Darren Weeks, promises all sorts of things to us average Canadians about how we can get out of the “Canadian Rat Race” and on to the “Fast Track”. He claims that people can start from scratch and become “Rich” in 5 years or less. He talks about wrestling back control of your ¿nances from the Big Banks and Financial Planners. He says he teaches people how to buy Canadian Real Estate with “No Money Down”, and many other “creative” money making ideas and so on. Every time I used to read one of his ads, I thought, “Who could be dumb enough to fall for this guy’s smoke & mirrors?” Now, I’m going to tell you the raw truth about Darren Weeks and his “How to Get Rich in BC” stuff. My name is Brian Lauer. I live in Vernon, B.C. with my wife Donna and our 2 kids. I grew up in Saskatchewan, moved to B.C. in the early 70’s. After doing different jobs in the Alberta oil patch, and then in construction, I married Donna in 1991. A few years after getting married I was out of work for a few months and I decided to get into plumbing. It was pretty rough trying to make it on apprentice wages of only $9 bucks an hour back then – especially with a family to support. Once I got my Plumber’s ticket things were OK, but I always thought I could do better in life instead of just grinding it out 9 - 5. I was doing OK with my plumbing work. But at the end of the day I was always trading hours for dollars – and there always seemed to be more expenses than money in the bank. If I ever stopped working, the money stopped coming in. I had a $15,000 line of credit that I honestly thought I’d never pay off. Then in 2001 I saw an ad for one of these “Free Rich Dad” events. I had read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and I thought what the heck, maybe I should be a little more open minded – what can I lose at a ‘free’ seminar anyway? But in the back of my mind I was sure that they were going to try to get me all jazzed up and excited, and then try to sell me some $5,000.00 real estate course. I had told myself that I would only stay at the event until the “pitch” started, then I’d go home. What Donna and I discovered at Darren’s “How to Get Rich in Canada” seminar really shocked us. First of all, I was waiting the whole time for the “other shoe to fall” and wondering when I was going to get “pitched” the expensive Real Estate course. It never happened. The most expensive thing I could buy there was a book – and they weren’t hardly mentioned. What was mentioned

were rock solid ideas, tips and strategies that Darren himself has put to use in his own life to create millions of dollars in income and equity in his businesses, investments and Real Estate. The man doesn’t like the Big Banks or Financial Planning companies very much, and he showed us why not. He opened our eyes to a whole different way of thinking about money and wealth – and most importantly, he inspired us to take action and go for it! Within a week of attending that event we decided to make Real Estate investing our vehicle to wealth (but Real Estate is not the only subject covered at Darren’s events – he also goes in depth about Business and Investing). Over the next couple of months we got cracking and started buying our ¿rst investment properties. Now, just a few short years later, we have over 29 ‘doors’ (rental units) in B.C. and Alberta and we are looking for another apartment building to buy with our investors. The positive cashÀow from our properties is more than enough to replace my plumber’s wages. Now I work at plumbing because I want to, not because I have to. While others in my ¿eld are worried about the economy and impending work shortages – all I can see is opportunity! And I know that if anything ever happened to me, we would be just ¿ne with our Real Estate. Not only that, but we learned how to buy them right and at the right price, and our Net Worth now of¿cially makes us millionaires twice over! (Which is sweet revenge for all the snickers we got from friends and family when we ¿rst told them what we were up to). Now you might be asking yourself how such a thing could happen to a blue-collar guy like me. The answer is simple. It’s all about learning how real proven and effective wealth creation systems work. I’m not talking about the “late nite t.v.” crap that comes in from South of the border either. I’m talking about proven methods and strategies that work right here in Canada – our home and native land. In spite of everything you’ve heard about investing in Real Estate being ‘risky’ – or the failure rate of starting your own business – or how crappy investing can be (and it can be – if you do it the way the ‘establishment’ tells you to) you too can learn how to get rich sooner rather that later. So here is the raw truth about Darren Weeks: Unlike most of those ‘pretend’ experts out there, he actually teaches stuff that works. He not only teaches it – he does it! He walks his talk and has businesses, investments and lots of Real Estate. Just like me, you’ve seen his ads in this paper before. You’ve gotten postcards from him. Or maybe you’ve seen him on TV, or heard his ads on the radio. If you haven’t been to one of his “How to Get Rich in BC” events yet, I don’t know why. Maybe you think you’re too smart and know it all, or that it is going to be a rip off, like I did. But if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich and happy? Maybe you are doing well already – but you could do better (many of Darren’s students are ‘retired’ in their 30’s or 40’s). Maybe you just don’t want to be sold something that’ll be a waste of your hard-earned money. About that you can

relax. At this event there’s nothing for sale that’s more expensive than a book – so leave your cheque book at home! I’ve got over two million reasons why you ought to check out what Darren has to say. What reasons do you have NOT to look at this? There is an event coming to Vernon on Thursday, April 15. This is a FREE event if you pre-register (otherwise it is $39.95 at the door) and registration is super easy. Either go on-line to www.FastTrackinVernon.ca or call the 24 hr. live operator to register by phone at 1-877-RICH CDN (1-877-742-4236). By the way, I wasn’t paid even a penny or given anything to write this about Darren Weeks. I am a regular Joe just like you. I did this as my way of saying thanks to Darren for everything he’s done for me and my family. And I’m not the only person who feels this way. Darren has spoken to over 100,000 Canadians at his events since he started in 2001. Many, just like me, are now making more money than they ever did before and are reaching their own ¿nancial dreams. My wife Donna just says “Wow” about how much we have accomplished and how much more we are going to do and have. We continue to go to Darren’s events as often as we can, because we always learn something new, and meet great new people. All I can say is, “don’t envy us. Join us” BRIAN LAUER, Vernon, B.C.

Darren Weeks, Donna & Brian Lauer (after his make over!) P.S. Please don’t get my number and call me. The last thing I need is a zillion phone calls asking me about Darren Weeks. I’ve said what I have to say right here. What else could you possibly need to know? Go to his upcoming FREE Event and learn for yourself “How to Get Rich in BC”. This event is in Vernon on Thursday, April 15, 2010 and you can go either at 12 noon or 7 p.m. The event is FREE with pre-registration, so go online to www.FastTrackinVernon.ca or call 1-877-742-4236 to register with a live operator 24/7.

Each strata development may require different considerations. Some strata developments, such as apartment type complexes, concern the air space

above a plot of land, others include ownership of the land & common areas in addition to the living space, and others involve leasehold agreements. You will want to know about any financial commitments that you could assume as a new owner, the by-laws that govern the development, and how the strata development is managed. If you decide to make an offer on a stratum, your realtor will make your offer subject to the receipt and approval of these documents. You will then be able to review regular strata council meetings minutes along with AGM or any special meetings, financial reports etc. Some strata have age restrictions or animal restrictions.

People interested in a green future are invited to participate in a special fundraiser. The Armstrong Spallumcheen Environmental Trust (ASET) is holding a Green Fair Saturday, April 17, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Askew’s in Armstrong. “We invited people to come down and meet various businesses and non-profit organizations involved in promoting green activities in the North Okanagan,” said Dave Derbowka with ASET. The annual event is a fundraiser for ASET’s annual bursary awarded to a graduating Pleasant Valley Secondary School graduate that plans to enter post-secondary studies in an environmental sustainability-related field. Any businesses who want to participate in the fair can do so at a cost of $40. Non-profit societies can take part free of charge. To register, call Derbowka at 250-546-6377. ASET was established in 2002, when members felt that the earth’s resources were being consumed at an alarming rate, and increasing pollution was rapidly degrading the environment. “For us to meet our future environmental challenges it is crucial to support motivated young people in their education in fields related to the environment,” states the group’s website, www.asetbc.ca.

The North Okanagan Livestock Association (NOLA) is focusing on Okanagan water and drought issues and how they affect ranching at its annual education seminar. The free session is open to other agriculture sectors and to the general public. It will be today at 7 p.m. at the Best Western Hotel and Conference Center in Vernon. Keynote speaker Nelson Jatel, water stewardship director for Okanagan Basin Water Board, will provide an overview of the water challenges agriculture and society face in the Okanagan. The Okanagan Water Board is working towards long-term management of this valuable resource through a number of sustainable initiatives Rob Dinwoodie, district range officer for the Ministry of Forest and Range, will speak on recent works on local watersheds that address concerns of water purveyors around water quality and cattle access. Rob has been working to find management strategies that increase cattle grazing and reduce

conflict with fellow resource users. There will also be updates from the Ministry of Agriculture and Lands, Environmental Farm Plan, and the Farmland Riparian Interface Stewardship Program. The B.C. government is presently modernizing the province’s Water Act which will have implications for water license holders and for those doing business around streams or waterways. Changes will affect most, if not all, beef producers in the province. The provincial government is encouraging public comment and has launched a blog on its website dedicated to water smarts located at: http://blog. gov.bc.ca/livingwatersmart/. Ranchers are strongly encouraged to submit their comments. You can also go to the B.C. Cattlemen’s Association website at www.cattlemen.bc.ca to find their position statement and other government documents pertaining to the Water Act modernization process.

Working the Coldstream

T

he Coldstream Ranch near Vernon controlled about 13,000 acres but, under the ownership of Lord Aberdeen, then Governor General of Canada, diversified and became heavily involved in growing apples as well as raising hogs and sheep alongside the traditional cattle. In the early 1900s the Coldstream employed about 100 hands in its various activities. As B. Eyre-Walker, who worked for the ranch in 1909, recounted in his book, Rolling On: The Log of a Land Rover (London: Seeley, Service & Co. Ltd., n.d.): There were nine beds in my bunk-house, an upper room in a two-storey building with one window and — being early summer Ken Mather — as hot as the proverbial place. All the beds were occupied in spite of the persistent attentions of bed bugs. That room had for long been disputed property of man and vermin … The weather grew warmer and … I shared a tent with one of the range riders. Many men went under the canvas every summer, so that an encampment of some 15 or 20 tents sprang up in the scrub that sheltered some of the buildings. Walker’s memories of riding for the Coldstream Ranch are also useful in providing insights into the daily life of the cowboy at the time. Although he was inexperienced, he had done some riding and was chosen to join the working cowboys instead of being placed in any of the other jobs that the Coldstream had to offer. In rounding up cattle on the range, a greenhorn invariably got the dirty work — that was part of his initiation. The full-blooded cowboy — the man who had spent a lifetime in perfecting his craft — considered himself among the elite of ranch hands. He had been through the school, yet seldom had the opportunity of bossing others, therefore why should he ride hard after the stragglers that had broken away from the bunch, or flank a herd on a rough hill-side when the valley bottom was smooth and the going easy? As a greenhorn, I soon found my best friend was my pony. He knew far better than I what a recalcitrant steer meant to do, and if normally clever, thwarted such efforts perfectly. Indeed, given a “cow wise” cayuse, and open country, little remained for the rider to do but

stick on. When, however, man and pony were engaged on close work, such as cutting out, roping, etc., the riders’ knowledge had to be no less, and every bit as swift in execution as that of his mount, otherwise the twain were soon parted. To expedite this, the methods perfected by riders to guide their mounts were reduced to the greatest simplicity and speed. To the Westerner the reins were not used as a check. To stop, the rider simply threw his weight back in the saddle; to go forward, the reverse. A deviation from the direct course was effected as easily; the swing of the reins meant more to a cayuse than hard pulling on the bit meant to an Old Country hack. Only those who have ridden and worked these clever brutes, can fully appreciate their knowledge of their duties. Ken Mather is curator at O’Keefe Ranch.

Directors unhappy with reply BARB BROUWER Black Press

Columbia-Shuswap Regional District directors got an answer, but it’s not the one they wanted. Directors had asked the Agricultural Land Commission to look at land within the Agricultural Land Reserve and advise what properties could be removed because they are unsuitable for farming. But in a reply to the board, commission chair Erik Karlsen advised that large-scale reviews were already undertaken in the late 1970s and ’80s with the most recent one taken place in 1997, leading to the removal of 14,000 hectares from the ALR. “In addition, OCP planning reviews completed in recent years in the Shuswap Region have been very supportive of the ALR and agriculture while not identifying areas which might warrant an ALR boundary review,” writes Karlsen. “For example, no mention was made of the necessity or desirability of reviewing ALR boundaries in Electoral Areas B, C, D, E or F during these recently completed or ongoing OCP reviews.” Karlsen notes as well that a large-scale ALR finetuning review tends to result in overly generalized assessments of agricultural capability, and are very costly in terms of resources and time. Director Kevin Flynn was the first to take offence to the letter, noting the city had not asked for a review in 1997 for a very good reason. “They say the OCP is the place to do that, but I don’t think so,” he said. “The commission has the ability to turn it down (request to remove agricultural land). I think they’re passing the buck.” Director Loni Parker was no happier with the letter. She says the board had not only contacted the ALC, a request was made for someone to give direction on a piece of property Area B wanted to remove from the ALR.

“They say the OCP is the place to do that, but I don’t think so.” — Kevin Flynn “It was very difficult to deal with them. They came an hour late and they weren’t even planning to see the land,” she said. “In my view they had made up their minds, it was a paper investigation.” Parker was also angry that commission members did not bring any equipment for examining soils and then gave an assessment on the wrong piece of land. “They’re telling us to go get an agrologist to do the work they’re supposed to be doing,” she said with frustration. Director Ted Bacigalupo said there have been some interesting discussions about the ALR at his OCP committee meetings. “We’re in year four of our OCP and I didn’t know the ALR has given us an opportunity to take properties out,” he said. “There are properties in the ALR that never should have been there.” Director Rhona Martin called the letter offensive. “My intention was for them to come out and look,” she says, noting that when agricultural land reserves were created sometime in the ’70s, properties that already had businesses operating on them were included. Martin also pointed out that the review mentioned in Karlsen’s letter was for individual blocks for specific applications in electoral areas. Her motion to send another letter to the commission to clarify the intent of the CSRD board’s first letter was supported unanimously.

It will no longer be easy for developers to walk away from water systems in the Columbia Shuswap Regional District. Fed up with inheriting water systems from developers who simply leave the scene, directors voted unanimously last week to amend the regional district’s water system acquisition strategy and water utility acquisition policy. A number of the proposed amendments have financial implications. One in particular specifies that a developer will provide a percentage of the total cost of the tangible assets of the system. This money will be deposited in a reserve fund for long-term capital replacement. “Staff has reviewed current and past costs for the construction of various systems and determined that 10 per cent of the cost (minimum of $50,000) as a sufficient amount for a reserve contribution once construction is complete,” wrote Gary Holte, manager of environment and engineering services, in a memo to the board. Another amendment, financial feasibility of treat-

Bands get the ball rolling at Funtastic Festival headliners and new sponsor announced for Vernon’s biggest party KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Slo-pitch players are not the only folks that will be throwing their hands in the air at the A&W Funtastic Music Festival Canada Day weekend. Celtic and classic rock fans will unite when Vancouver’s Spirit of the West and Scottish rockers Nazareth headline the festival July 2 and July 3, respectively. The four-day music festival, which correlates with the Funtastic slo-pitch tournament, starts off with a bang on Canada Day, which falls on a Thursday this year, with local bands Mace, The Goods, The Young’uns and others taking the stage at the Department of National Defence (DND) Army Camp. “This year our opener correlates with the fireworks at the Army Camp,” said Funtastic Sports Society president Wilf Mulder. “We work closely with the Canada Day fireworks committee every year, even when it doesn’t fall on Funtastic weekend, but this year makes it extra special.” Revelers will kick up their heels on the Friday when local acts Channel Eight, Orio and Cold Driven rev up the crowd before folk-rock legends Spirit of the West take to the stage. Known for such high energy anthems such as Home for a Rest, Save This House, Political and And If Venice is Sinking, SOTW have been around for more than two decades, with 12 albums under their belt. Members John Mann, Geoffrey Kelly, Hugh McMillan, Vince Ditrich, and Tobin Frank last went into the studio in 2004 after a seven-year hiatus, producing the CD, Star Trails, and also put out SOTW’s 25th anniversary compilation, Spirituality 1983-2008: The Consummate Compendium, in 2008. The band has continued to tour the festival circuit and opened for Great Big Sea on its national tour last year. It will be a tribute to the ‘70s on the Saturday when High Voltage (an AC/DC tribute) and Love Gun (a tribute to Kiss) open up for Nazareth. This year is an exciting time for the Scottish rockers and their fans with Salvo Records set to reissue all of the Nazareth’s albums, remastered on CD with extra bonus

Spirit of the West’s Geoffrey Kelly (left), Vince Ditrich, John Mann, Hugh McMillan and Tobin Frank get ready for happy hour when they headline the A&W Funtastic Music Festival in Vernon July 2. tracks. The first to be released is a new two-CD anthology collection as well as albums Loud ‘n’ Proud, Rampant and Hair Of The Dog, featuring such hits as Go Down Fighting, the Joni Mitchell-penned This Flight Tonight, and Nazareth’s most famed ballad of them all, Love Hurts, originally written by the Everly Brothers. Original members Dan McCafferty on lead vocals and bassist Pete Agnew will be joined by drummer Lee Agnew and guitarist Jimmy Murrison at Funtastic. The band tours Western Canada this summer, including a number of shows with The Headpins, featuring Vernon’s own Darby Mills. Besides the music lineup, which continues to grow, The Funtastic Sports Society is also excited to welcome its new festival sponsor.

“A&W is a supporter of a number of community events and have been for a number of years. It was a really good fit to have A&W join us as the music fest sponsor,” said Mulder. Another advantage, Mulder says, is A&Ws two locations on Anderson Way and the Fruit Union Plaza, where weekend passes to the music festival will go on sale June 1. Day passes will only be available at the gate, however, an early-bird deal for weekend passes will be available up to a certain date to be announced, he added. “We strive for value. We want to bring in bigger names, but also want to keep the tickets and weekend packages affordable,” said Mulder. Updates to the festival are expected to be announced in the near future. For more information, check out Funtastic’s website at www.funtastic.org.

Vernon writer shortlisted for national poetry award Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Laisha Rosnau has been shortlisted for the 2010 Pat Lowther Memorial Award for her latest book of poetry, Lousy Explorers, published by Nightwood Editions. The award is given to a Canadian woman who has published a book of poetry in the preceding year, and is in memory of the late Lowther, whose career was cut short by her untimely death in 1975.

The award carries a $1,000 prize. Rosnau, who grew up in Vernon, recently moved back to town from Prince George with her young family. “In two years, I went from being a single girl living in downtown Vancouver to being married and a new mother in northern B.C. It was quite an adjustment,” she said. “Now, I’m back in Vernon, a place that is both very familiar and so different from when I grew up here, with two young children and my

own family. It will be interesting to explore the area from this new perspective.” An alumni of UBC’s masters of fine arts creative writing program, Rosnau’s work has been published in Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and Australia, and was recently anthologized in White Ink: Poems on Mothers and Motherhood and Rocksalt: An Anthology of Contemporary B.C. Poetry. Her collection of poetry, Notes on Leaving (Nightwood 2004), won the Acorn-Plantos

Poetry Award in 2005. Also a published author, her debut novel, The Sudden Weight of Snow (2002), was an honourable mention for the Amazon/ Books in Canada First Novel Award.

Melody has got rhythm DVOIRA YANOVSKY Vernon Jazz Society

The Vernon Jazz Club welcomes Melody Diachun, one of Canada’s finest contemporary jazz vocalists, to the stage Saturday night. Lauded in magazines and newspapers across the country, Juno nominee Diachun performs her own take on songs by artists such as Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Carole King, Thelonius Monk and Cole Porter. “The music we’ll be playing is something I call new groove jazz, which unites the freedom and excitement of jazz expression with a hip, groove-oriented rhythmic base,” said Diachun. “I tend to be drawn to music with a Brazilian and Latin flavour, and funky types of rhythms.” Diachun will also perform some original material, including new tune The Sheltering Sky, inspired by a monologue on the human condition in Bernardo Bertolucci’s film of the same name. A self-proclaimed jazz purist, Diachun says she loves the old standards, but is also influenced by the music from her early days. “The music I heard when I was very young –– the music of the ‘70s –– has gradually crept its way into the music I write,” said Diachun. “I still love to sing jazz standards, especially those by Cole Porter, the Gershwins, Rogers and Hart, Lerner and Lowe, Irving Berlin, Ray Noble. These are some of the most beautifully written songs I have ever heard and I’m ready to sing them.” Diachun cites a vari-

Diachun was nominated for Female Vocalist of the Year at

Canada’s 2009 National Jazz Awards and has released three CDs including 2008’s EQ. As part of the Olympic festivities, Diachun performed at the Sochi 2014 House and at a private party attended by the president of Sweden and International Olympic Committee president Jacques Rogge. She also hosts an online radio show on the brand new Just Jazz station for the Media on Tap Radio Network. Joining Diachun is Chris Andrew on piano, Doug Stephenson on bass and Ray Garraway on drums. Andrew is versatile in a variety of genres including jazz, funk, pop, Latin, and musical theatre. Based in Edmonton, he has studied in Cuba and toured across Canada many times. He’s performed with artists such as Joshua Redman, Sonny Fortune, Bud Shank and Joe La Barbera. In 2008, Andrew received the CBC Galaxie Rising Star Award. Stephenson has been an essential member of western Canada’s jazz

Chilean Maid served with awards JIM ELDERTON Vernon Film Society

For centuries maids have been stereotyped as objects of lust, jokes, and as resentful working class women oppressed by the rich. In the TV series Upstairs Downstairs, although servants were basically invisible upstairs, they emerged as real people below stairs. The Maid from Chilean director Sebastián Silva introduces a wealthy Santiago family who decide to acknowledge the 41st birthday of their sullen and withdrawn maid Raquel. After 23 years she has become part of the family, but when they persuade her to emerge from her kitchen for a brief celebration, her discomfort is even stronger than their awkward dependence on her, and she soon retreats to her room. Worried by Raquel’s

They hire one new maid after another, only to be defeated every time by her aggressive household tactics. But eventually she collapses while serving breakfast. Grudgingly she accepts a period of

bed rest and convalescence. When Raquel returns to work she discovers that a cheerful new maid, Lucy (about her own age), has effectively replaced her. But her household terror tactics prove no match for Lucy’s humour and resilience. And Lucy succeeds where the family failed, simply by treating her as an equal. As their mutual trust and

affection grows, Raquel begins to transform. Like numerous British and European films, The Maid successfully highlights the subtleties in the shifting power balance in the servant-employer relationship. At the Sundance Festival it won World Cinema Jury Prize Drama, and Catalina Saavedra won the World Cinema Special Jury Prize for Acting. Kenneth Turan of the Los Angeles Times reported: “The Maid will resonate with everyone savvy enough to seek out this perceptive film –– and make it their own.” The Maid is not to be confused with a 2005 horror film from Singapore, about a maid recently arrived from the Philippines, struggling with supernatural forces while acclimatizing herself to the customs of the Chinese Ghost Month. The Maid screens at the Vernon Towne

Moon is full with workshops The opportunities to get creative keep flowing with Runaway Moon Theatre’s Reflection Community Art Project. The Enderby-based theatre continues to celebrate water with free drop-in sessions in each of its four workshop series covering music, fabric design, ceramics and movement. On April 11, from 1 to 4 p.m. at Timbercreek Hall (behind SuperSave Gas in Enderby), Marion Lee and Uscher Eder will lead a workshop on decorating fabric with dye. A Japanese way of tie-dye, Shibori involves sewing, wrapping or clamping fabric before dyeing it. Participants will use the theme of water in their design, and will work together on lengths of

fabric which will become a part of Runaway’s upcoming summer show. Murray MacDonald’s music workshop series, Roar, Splash and Trickle, continues at the Enderby Museum with a session April 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. “If you haven’t been able to make any of the previous evenings, make time for this one. It may be your last chance to come and play around with making water music in a fun and engaging environment,” said Runaway Moon publicist Jaci Metivier. Workshops in movement with dancer Kristi Christian and a ceramics session with potter Stephen Plant are scheduled for April 17 and 18.

News Provincial movie industry gets tax breaks, but no subsidies TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government is increasing its tax credit for movie and television labour costs to 33 per cent, but it won’t match Ontario’s decision to subsidize the industry, Tourism Minister Kevin Krueger says. B.C. is increasing its tax credit from 25 to 33 per cent of labour costs effective this month, but will not extend the credit to a quarter of all spending by production companies, as Ontario has done. “Ontario will be losing taxpayers’ money for every dollar of tax credits they pay out,” Krueger said. Movie and television production is a lucrative and competitive business, where B.C. ranks third in North America behind Los Angeles and New York, thanks mainly to U.S. productions. The B.C. Film Commission reported Thursday that total annual spending in B.C. rose by $100 million in 2009, to $1.3 billion. The number of productions declined from 260 in 2008 to 239 last year, but large U.S. projects such as

Twilight Saga: New Moon and Eclipse to Stargate Universe pushed the total higher. Krueger acknowledged that around a dozen film and TV productions chose Ontario to take advantage of its generous tax breaks, but he said the B.C. industry remains busy. NDP finance critic Bruce Ralston said the tax credit for labour expenditures was an NDP initiative, and he’s pleased the government has maintained it. One area of the industry that hasn’t fared well is domestic film and television production, which he said has dropped significantly. B.C. producers have asked for a “seed fund” to help local shows get established, and the government should consider that, Ralston said. B.C. is also increasing tax credits for digital animation and visual effects work from 15 to 25 per cent, to attract an increasingly important specialty for productions like the movie blockbuster Avatar and kids’ TV series Thomas and Friends. A new credit of 17.5

per cent has also been created for video game developers. As with federal tax credits, the B.C. program is restricted to qualifying labour costs. In an effort to spread the wealth beyond the studios and locations in Metro Vancouver, B.C. has a regional credit of six per cent on labour expenditures for principal photography outside the designated Vancouver area.

Another six per cent credit can be earned for

Tax News

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block Many self-employed people use their vehicle for work related purposes and some of the cost of using and maintaining the vehicle may be deductible. Firstly, travel to and from your place of self employment is NOT deductible. Secondly, CRA requires that you keep a logbook of total distance traveled and distances traveled for business purposes. The percentage of distance for business is then used to apportion fuel, insurance, repair expenses etc. to the business statement. The percentage of business use must be reasonable compared to the type of self-employment. For example; a realtor will use his or her vehicle far more than a person who operates a daycare business from their home.

Kings shut down Vipers in Game 3 Morning Star Staff

If it were November or December, Mark Ferner says he could possibly understand it. But to have more passengers than a Westjet seat sale in the midst of an April playoff run, the Vernon Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach is baffled. The Snakes dropped back-to-back games for just the second time all season as they fell 4-0 to the Powell River Kings in Game 3 of the B.C. Hockey League Fred Page Cup final Monday night at Hap Parker Arena in Powell River. Following Saturday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3-1 loss in Game 2 at Wesbild Centre, the Vipers trailed the Kings 2-1 in the best-of-seven series heading into Game 4 Tuesday night on the Sunshine Coast. Game 5 goes Thursday night at Wesbild. If necessary, Game 6 would go Saturday at Hap Parker (7:30 p.m. start), with Game 7 returning to Wesbild Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t question some guysâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; effort,â&#x20AC;? said Ferner, referring to the lead-by-example play of twins Connor and Kellen Jones, Dave Robinson, Garrett Noonan, Kevin Kraus, Stevie Weinstein, Robbie Short and a handful of others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we need more guys to be better, and how we get better is by getting better efforts, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough thing to swallow because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a team that prides ourselves on our work ethic, and right now weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not getting it. Right now, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just being out-competed.â&#x20AC;? The Vipers have prided themselves on their ability to get production from all four lines this season, but that hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been the case so far in this series. If Ferner canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t rely on his depth, he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to juggle ice time to get results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we have to run with two-and-a-half lines and four dee, we will,â&#x20AC;? he said. Chad Niddery buried a loose puck as a posse of Kings crashed the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; net on a late first-period powerplay. Mat Bodie made a dynamic rush into the Vernon zone and drew the lone assist on Nidderyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eighth of the post-season. The Kings made it 2-0 at 5:17 of the second period as Cody Rainaldi unleashed a wicked snapshot from the right wing to beat Vernon goalie Graeme Gordon under the crossbar. The Vipers, who havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t scored since the first period of Game 2, enjoyed several scoring chances from in tight and the mid slot, but the likes of Cory Kane, Short and Connor failed to hit the net. Powell River cashed in another powerplay 48 seconds into the third period as Drew Pettitt counted his first goal of the playoffs with a hard, low one-timer to Gordonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s glove side. Bodie earned the assist.

The Kings slammed the Snakes 4-0 to take a 2-1 series lead. Game 4 went Tuesday night on the Sunshine Coast. The Kings completed their offence with 6:38 left on a five-on-three powerplay when Bodie went top shelf, stick side, with Gordon screened. Kellen, for goaltender interference, and Adam Thompson, for high sticking, took minor penalties 22 seconds apart to give the Kings the two-man advantage. Bodie, a smooth skating East St. Paul, Man. product, leads the post-season scoring race with 7-19-26 in 19 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been waiting for this all year,â&#x20AC;? said Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Kent Lewis, of the Powell River captain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He played great as captain at the World Junior (A) Challenge and he elevates his play in big games. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s such a good leader in the dressing room. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a 30-year-old in a 19-year-oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body.â&#x20AC;? Lewis credits his squad for shutting down the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; skill game with a gritty brand of hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We did what we had to and I think they got frustrated,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a pretty dialedin group and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a hungry team right now. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having a ball out there, and we know

weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re playing a good team.â&#x20AC;? Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; netminder Josh Watson turned in 28 saves for his fourth shutout of the post-season. Gordon made 26 stops for Vernon. Said Viper captain Kraus: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Emotions got the best of us and we let it get out of hand.â&#x20AC;? Aside for the first-place battle with the Penticton Vees in the regular season, Vernon hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faced a ton of adversity this year. Kraus says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The reason we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have adversity is because we always played as a team and we kind of got away from that. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had everyone giving their best effort. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had guys just sitting there eating up ice time.â&#x20AC;? In Game 2 Saturday night, Rainaldi collected the winner 3:05 into the third period and Mitch Labreche added an empty-net insurance goal with 24 seconds remaining. Despite being outshot 9-5 in the first period, Vernon got off to a solid start when Connor took a feed from Sahir Gill just inside the Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blueline then danced around a pair of Powell River defenders before sliding the

puck five-hole on Watson on the powerplay. Special teams played a role again in the second period, this time in Powell Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favour. After killing off Jason Yeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tripping minor midway through the period, the Kings went on the powerplay shortly after, with Matt Garbowsky tapping home the rebound off Justin Dasilvaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point shot, deflating the 2,200 fans. The towering Dasilva set up the winner with a gorgeous stretch pass to Rainaldi, who cut around defenceman Curtis Gedig and tucked the puck behind Gordon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came out with a lot of speed, a lot of grit... thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what we base our whole hockey club on,â&#x20AC;? said Dasilva. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a speedy team and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to keep that up for the entire series.â&#x20AC;? Watson recorded 30 saves to earn second star, while Gordon made 23 stops. Meanwhile, the Spruce Grove Saints hammered the Fort McMurray Oil Barons 6-2 to take a 2-1 series lead in the AJHL Enerflex Cup final.

Sanford deuce paces POE attack Morning Star Staff

The Vernon connection was huge as the Kelowna Pursuit of Excellence upended the Spruce Grove Saints 5-2 Sunday night in the 42nd Tim Hortons Kamloops International Bantam Ice Hockey Tournament final at MacArthur Island Arena. Cole Sanford scored twice and his linemate Curtis Lazar had two assists. The Vernon duo were joined by Lumby defenceman Dylan Bowen on the gold-medalist winners. Lazar, who compiled three goals and nine points, was named the Top Forward and chosen to the first all-star team. Sanford finished with 5+2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Spruce Grove was definitely up there as one of the better teams weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve played,â&#x20AC;? said Lazar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They are a big team, but they couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match our speed.â&#x20AC;? Christo Koukis, a Los Angeles product, garnered 1+1 while playing on the LazarSanford line. Fraser Bulbuc and Gavin Broadhead also scored for POE. The teams were scoreless through one period, while POE went up 2-0 after 40 minutes. Sanford made it 2-0 with a goal with three seconds left in the second period.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was at the top of the circle, spun and got a good shot away,â&#x20AC;? said Sanford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hurried the shot because I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to run out of time.â&#x20AC;? Nelson Gadoury and Thomas Foster replied for Spruce Grove. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a close game until the third period when we pulled away,â&#x20AC;? said Sanford. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That team went to double overtime the night before against Calgary so they were exhausted.â&#x20AC;? Sanford praised Lazar for a stellar tournament. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He played really good. He was shooting the puck, passing and using his speed, and playing physical.â&#x20AC;? Bowen enjoyed a solid game on the blueline, getting a few strong shots on net. Both teams took just three minor penalties. The Vernon Royal LePage Renegades bowed 7-2 to the Notre Dame Hounds of Saskatchewan in Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s B final of the 16-team affair. Alex Gillies and Richard Meaney scored for the Renegades, whose game MVP was goalie Devon Pearson. Cory Millette pulled the hat trick for the Hounds.

United girls bank bronze at Beasley Morning Star Staff

The Vernon United U15B girls earned the bronze medal at the season-opening Icebreaker Soccer Tournament last weekend at Beasley Park in Lake Country.

United, coached by Glen Coulthard and Tom Ouchi, got three shootout goals to defeat Kelowna U14A 1-0 in a bronze-medal match that showcased skilled and aggressive play

from both teams. Vernon held Kelowna to limited scoring chances and a scoreless result after two halves. In the ensuing shootout, solid goalkeeping by Candice

Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; keeper. In the same tourney, the Vernon U14 boys 1-2, shutting down Kelowna 1-0 in their opener. With 30 seconds remaining in the first half, Noa Acri worked on the right side before placing a shot over the Kelowna keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head. Kelowna controlled the second-half play, but the defensive corps and keeper Victor Gouchee put up the wall. Acri was Man-of-the-Match. Vernon then bowed 1-0 to Squamish, who got their goal off a corner kick one minute into the second-half. Vernon finished play by bowing 1-0 to Calgary, who clicked on a header off a corner in the first half. Man-of-the-Match was Dylan Towns.

In their opener, Vernon trailed Kelowna United U15B by one goal for most of the game, but the defensive pairing of Berg and Danika Damini held the game within reach for striker Sam Ferrier to connect and give United a 2-1 victory. United came out strong against Salmon Arm-Shuswap, and dominated play in the midfield for a 2-0 win. After goals from Emma Byskov and Ferrier, Lipski took over and shut out the competition. In bone-chilling conditions, Vernon then experienced their first loss, 3-0, to Kelowna United U14A, who scored two goals on well-placed corner kicks, and another on a free kick. Vernon left their hearts and lungs on the field against the Kamloops Blaze U15A team, but fell 2-1.

Hill on top Morning Star Staff

As little as one month ago, Kevin Hill was the guy on the outside looking in at the Vancouver Winter Olympics. An alternate for the Canadian men’s snowboard cross team, the 23-year-old Vernon native watched as teammates carved up the Cypress Mountain course. Fast-forward three weeks, and Hill grounded those same riders to claim gold at the 13th annual Canada Snowboard Cross Nationals last weekend at Mount-Tremblant. “It feels awesome to end the season in first place... knowing you can beat some of the best riders in the world,” said Hill. “It’s a big confidence booster and it takes off a lot of the stress. “My time trials went really well and I qualified a second or so in front of everyone which was pretty satisfying.” Jake Holden (Caledon, Ont.) finished second, while Americans Robert Minghini and J.J. Tomlinson were third and fourth respectively. Canadian team member Rob Fagan claimed seventh place, Francois Boivin was eighth, Mike Robertson crashed in the quarterfinals and Drew Neilson did not start. Hill, who turns 24 in June, has parlayed a successful pro BMX career into stellar results in snowboard cross, a sport he has competed in for less than four years. At first glance, the two sports might not have much in common, but Hill says the cross-training experiment has really paid off. “It’s pretty much the same idea, so it’s the best,” said Hill, of the two sports. “Going from eight guys in BMX trials to four on a snowboard, it’s a little less stressful.” Hill’s previous best on the FIS World Cup circuit was a sixth-place finish at Stoneham, Que. in January. He told Canada Snowboard: “I just want to climb up the ladder as high as I can in my sport and do the best I can,” Hill says the $1,500 first-place purse will help to offset the $17,000 it costs to travel to competitions during the

I want to make a small living out of it and be able to pay my bills.” Hill has just two weeks to hang up the board and dust off the bike as the Canadian ABA Nationals series starts in Chilliwack, April 16-18.

Hill thanked B.C. Snowboard Association coach Chris Nakonechny, his parents, Don and Arleigh Hill, and girlfriend Katie Patterson for supporting him on this adventure. He also thanked sponsors Dunas Skate & Snow and Balcaen Consolidated Contracting of Lavington. In women’s action, Maelle Ricker of Squamish added a national championship to her Olympic and World Cup titles to complete a perfect season. Better Business Bureau

McMillan’s moxy magical WARREN HENDERSON Black Press Sports

KELOWNA – From both the personal and team perspectives, Brandon McMillan’s career with the Kelowna Rockets didn’t exactly begin with a bang. The speedy grad of the B.C. Major Midget League’s Vancouver Rangers managed a paltry two goals in 55 games in his rookie season, while the Rockets finished last in the Western Hockey League’s B.C. division with just 22 wins. Four seasons later, McMillan is happy to report that life is good in the land of Ogopogo. “I remember that first year was tough and pretty frustrating,” said McMillan, whose family moved with him to Kelowna from Tsawwassen during his rookie season in the WHL. “But I think everybody knew that wouldn’t last, and it’s been a pretty good ride here ever since. We were a lot better the next year, we went to the Memorial Cup a year after that, and now we’re back in the race again. I can say it’s really been a great four years here for me.” McMillan hasn’t allowed himself much time to reflect on his major junior career which, in all likelihood, will end within the next several weeks. The NHL’s Anaheim Ducks are expected to promote the 5-foot-11, 190 pound forward to

the pro ranks next season. If he doesn’t make the jump straight to the big club, McMillan will most likely suit up for the Ducks’ new AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch. The Ducks liked both his speed and work ethic when they drafted McMillan in the third round – 85th overall – in the 2008 entry draft. As a bonus, the NHL club saw McMillan excel as a forward with Team Canada at the 2010 world junior championship, then watched him display his versatility by playing defence for the Rockets during last spring’s WHL championship run. Kelowna head coach Ryan Huska said McMillan has evolved into one of the organization’s most dependable players. “The one thing about having a tough first year as a team is that Brandon and our young players, the 16and 17-year-olds, had the chance to play a lot, so he’s really benefitted from that over the course of four years,” said Huska. “He’s become a very good two-way player and was very important in our run to the Memorial Cup last year. He works very hard off the ice and has made himself an even more explosive skater because of the work he puts in. (In the playoffs) this year he’s been doing everything we’ve asked of him.” Through 11

Weatherill opened the scoring shorthanded, 4:05 into the Under 16 division game. She later added an assist. Moore, a defenceman, pocketed two assists. Emily Jude, with 2+2, and Leigh Maxwell-Smith, with 1+3, led B.C., who faced Nova Scotia later Tuesday and will battle Quebec and Ontario today. In Monday opening action, B.C. iced host Saskatoon 9-2 with Jude and Maxwell-Smith each netting hat-tricks and Moore recording one assist. B.C. then fell 4-3 to Alberta with Maxwell-Smith earning two goals.

Four-year vet Brandon McMillan is a huge part of the Rockets’ playoff success. post-season games, McMillan had two goals and nine assists and, playing on a line with Geordie Wudrick and Lucas Bloodoff, played a vital role in Kelowna’s first-round upset of the Everett Silvertips. Because Kelowna lost so much veteran talent from last year’s

club – 10 players, including Jamie Benn, Tyler Myers and Colin Long – few gave the Rockets much of a chance of contending this season. But based on what the Rockets have shown thus far in the playoffs, McMillan said there’s every reason to believe the club can have another

prosperous run though April and, just maybe, beyond. “Before the playoffs, I think a lot of people had written us off,” said McMillan, who had 25 goals and 42 assists in the regular season. “We showed a lot of resilience against Everett and that we can play with anybody.”

Many of these hazards would be relatively insignificant on their own but together they pose more serious threats. Heather Larratt of Larratt Aquatic, which did the intake study, proposed an intake protection zone around each intake to keep development out of the surrounding areas.

Bob walks with purpose CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Bob Shephard kept hearing about cutbacks to community programs and decided that he was going to do what he could to help. “I read in the paper that funding was down for the United Way and I already walk for exercise so I thought I would put my walking to good use,” he said. He wants to raise $1,000 for the United Way which supports a variety of programs and services for all people in — Bob the community. “We’re so happy that Bob is doing this. We’re calling it Bob’s Big Walk for United Way and we’re taking pledges of any amount right up to the day of the walk. One person can make a difference,” said Linda Yule, executive director of United Way of North Okanagan Columbia

Shuswap. Shephard, 64, who works washing windows at downtown businesses, has got up to 25 laps (.25 kilometres each lap) of Wesbild Centre and is aiming for 70 laps (about 10 miles) for his walk. He estimates this will take about eight hours with rest stops. Shephard would also like people to join him for as many laps as they want. “I just want to do something to help all these good programs keep going in the community,” he said. Shephard Bob’s Big Walk for United Way takes place April 15 at Wesbild Centre with Mayor Wayne Lippert joining Shephard for his first lap at 8 a.m. For more information and to make pledges, call Yule at 250-549-1346 or e-mail lmyule@shaw.ca.

Daffodils blooming in April for Cancer Society Morning Star Staff

Everyone is reminded to wear a daffodil pin on the Canadian Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day Friday. “This is an important thing that people can do to support those they know who have cancer or who have been lost to cancer,” said Canadian Cancer Society honourary chairman Patrick Nicol. “Everyone who campaigns is a volunteer and it is a physical and emotional effort for them

to do this but they know why they are doing it. “They find that they are always welcome and that the door that they knock on will have a story of some connection to cancer. These are stories from the heart and people want to help with donations of any amount. Each one is significant.” He added that people like to take the opportunity to ask the volunteer canvass-

ers questions about the society and its services. “Jackie George (campaign chairman) and all the volunteers are exceptional. We know it’s going to be a good campaign,” he said. New this year, the pins are available around town and are a way to support the Canadian Cancer Society and a reminder that the door-to-door campaign is on now and throughout April.

aster weekend has passed, leaving many of us with left-over turkey, ham and hard-cooked eggs which need to be made into something interesting and edible. I plan to make mine into a few quick meals for the coming hockey play-off nights. Go Vipers, go! As of this writing, I’ve not come up with anything suitable for all the chocolate, but eating it is still a good idea from where I sit. Today’s recipes are designed for quick preparation, are freezable, and taste delicious as well. Enjoy! Ham-stuffed Manicotti Cathi Litzenberger 14 manicotti pasta shells 1 onion, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped 1/4 cup butter or olive oil 1-2 cups cooked, cubed ham 4 hard-cooked eggs, chopped Salt and pepper, to taste 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese 6 tbsp. butter or olive oil 6 tbsp. flour 3 cups milk 2 cups shredded Swiss cheese (can substitute your favourite cheese if you like) 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese Cook manicotti as directed on package. Drain, rinse in cool water and set aside. Meanwhile, cook onion, garlic and green pepper in 4 tbsp. of oil or butter until tender. Add ham, eggs, salt and pepper to taste, and set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Stir in 1/3 cup Parmesan cheese. In another heavy saucepan, cook 6 tbsp. oil or butter until foamy. Stir in flour and cook, stirring constantly, until mixture bubbles, about 3 minutes. Add milk, and cook, whisking constantly, until sauce thickens. Stir in cheese. Mix 1/4 of cheese sauce with ham mixture. Fill manicotti shells with ham mixture (your fingers work best for this; it’s messy but most efficient). Spread about 1/2 cup cheese sauce in greased 13x9-inch glass baking dish and arrange filled shells over sauce. If there is any left-over stuffing, just sprinkle it over the filled

Still too early to plant

A

s March came to a close, we had some real good rain. All plants come to life quickly after a good rain. Those small shrubs such as flowering plum, forsythia, smoke bush and that type of shrub really come to life. It is a little too early to get too active in the garden. We can still get some cold nights that will cause real damage. The garden centres are really loading up great stacks of small plants. I see small Fred Lyall geraniums grown from seed for a very low price. There are some really nice small pansies that will come in to bloom very quickly. I much prefer surfinia if I can find them. They are a hybrid petunia that does not produce seed. One variety that I use is called dark pink. I also like one that is almost white with pale pink edges. One of the most aggressive petunia supertunias is a dark blue one that likes to spread and put out a lot of blooms.

IN THE GARDEN

One of my favourite basket items for a shaded area is trailing begonias. You should start the tubers in early March. In June, July and August, they will really put out some nice blooms, such as reds, yellows and apricot shades. They need good fertilization: 15-30-15 water-soluble is real good. As I listened to Kiss-FM recently, I was pleased to hear they were having a garbage clean-up day. The part that bothers me is the people who throw their garbage along the roadside. I suggest, especially if you own a business, to clean up the frontage of your property. If you have planted shrubs, be sure to pull the weeds that pop up between them. An example of well-kept boulevards is the frontage by Vernon Credit Union. Another is in front of the Best Western Vernon Lodge. There are others who do not do too well. Communities in Bloom will appreciate your efforts. Okanagan Gardens and Roses meets April 12 at 7:30 p.m. at Schubert Centre. A very good program is assured. If you are gardening in a smaller space, this is your chance to get some good advice. Visitors are always welcome at our meetings.

Pink Shirt Day moves to stop bullying Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs join the provincial and national movements to celebrate Pink Shirt Day — Bullying Stops Here April 14. Boys and Girls Clubs across the Okanagan will be participating in planned activities that provide education, awareness and teach skills to encourage empathy-building. Organizers encourage the community to wear pink on April 14 to show that bullying will no longer be tolerated. Pink Shirt Day originated in Nova Scotia when two young men stood up to bullying in their high school. A new student was being bullied when he came to school wearing a pink T-shirt. The other students bought 50 pink T-shirts and got other students to wear them to school to show

Pancake Breakfast AND FLEA MARKET at Schubert Centre

support for the new student who was being bullied. Since this powerful act of solidarity, Pink Shirt Day has made its way across Canada. Last year the call to make a statement against bullying by wearing pink was

met with an overwhelming response from schools, employers and politicians. Thousands of people wore pink to school and work. Everyone is encouraged to wear pink April 14 to show support against bullying. Pink

T-shirts are available for $5 at London Drugs stores or by contacting Miriam King at 250762-3914 or mking@ boysandgirlsclub.ca. All proceeds will go to help support the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs.

Saturday April 24 9:30am-Noon Admission 50¢

RecreaĆ&#x;on Centre Auditorium

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Be careful that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come off as being too insistent about having your own way, especially in social involvements with friends. You wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be labeled as being selfish.

CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Financial carelessness on your behalf today could cause added expenditures or a big loss of some kind. When making a purchase, pay special attention to details and hang onto all receipts.

Tables are available for rent to sell your â&#x20AC;&#x153;treasuresâ&#x20AC;?! Register at the RecreaĆ&#x;on Centre. 250-550-3672 for informaĆ&#x;on.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be smart not to react to someone who has been unfriendly toward you in a spiteful manner, even if that person deserves retaliation. Sadly, you could be labeled as the one who is rude and haughty.

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) Someone may either make a commitment or speak out on your behalf without your permission, authorizing something you would have to make good on. If this occurs, try to set things straight immediately.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Aggressiveness is a sure way to draw fire, so be careful about coming off as too forceful when acting as an authority to those who need guidance. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lose support, not gain cooperation.

PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) Be extra careful when doing anything that calls for working with unfamiliar tools, materials or methods. Refuse to do so without first getting acquainted with all the dos and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ts.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Try to avoid teaming up with someone less experienced than you, thereby placing the greater burden on yourself. Inequality could invite more regret than expected and cause a rueful outburst. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Independence can be an enviable quality, but if it is carried too far today it could make you seem to be acting in a self-serving manner during an arrangement with others that calls for cooperation. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not likely to perform well when under pressure today, so try not to leave important things to the last minute. Set a strict schedule and adhere to it, and all will come to the good. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) Arrange your social involvements beforehand today to make sure they jibe with being able to join friends. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, you could find yourself left behind with persons who need tending. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) Keep outsiders out of family problems that must be resolved by kin alone, today. Friends might mean well, but their input could create some serious complications and problems. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) Unfortunately, you might have to deal with someone today who has a bit of a chip on his/her shoulder and could be even too much for you. Back off if you can, because you could get drawn into combat.

YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY Your financial picture looks rather encouraging in the year ahead, but money isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t likely to be handed to you on a silver platter. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind working extra hard for it, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have a chance of getting what you want.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ďŹ&#x201A;ashes and weight gain. What can I do? 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.

HST debate shifts into high gear

P

oliticians are wringing their hands, saying they have no choice but to extend sales taxes to services from haircuts to home repairs to funerals. They know people don’t like it. “It’s hard enough doing what we do,” plumber John Luke said last week, as he faced the prospect of presenting customers with a new tax on his services. Luke doesn’t fix pipes in B.C., or Ontario. He lives in Philadelphia, and was interviewed by the New York Times. Pennsylvania and Michigan have seen drastic drops in their income tax revenues and are looking to join states such as Washington, Hawaii, Delaware, New Mexico and South Dakota, where most services are already subject to state sales taxes. “The basic thing is that we need to update our tax structure,” said Robert Kleine, treasurer for Michigan. “We’ve got a 20th-century tax structure based on a different sort of economy. The tax base doesn’t grow as the economy grows.” As Detroit and Oshawa have shed jobs in car plants, B.C. has seen its own decline in steady paycheques – notably in the forest industry – that deduct a big slice for federal and provincial income tax. The B.C. Liberal government has cut income taxes repeatedly, and is on its way to eliminating income tax for small business. Now the other shoe is dropping. The B.C. legislature will be dominated in the coming days by debate over harmonized sales tax legislation. This battle is largely moot, since the federal government has already passed the legislation to combine provincial taxes with the GST in B.C. and Ontario. The contract with Ottawa is signed, and all that’s left for B.C. to do is repeal its provincial sales tax law to make way for the new system.

care and education, despite the fact spending for both continues to rise. Health spending is up $2 billion in the last year, and total provincial spending will reach an unprecedented $42.5 billion in the coming year. NDP leader Carole James and former Social Credit premier Bill Vander Zalm are on separate barnstorming tours to fan opposition to the HST. Last week

B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher It puts the NDP opposition in an awkward place. They’ve been hammering the government over its drastic “cuts” to health

in Kamloops, Vander Zalm said the government is in the red because it built projects such as the Golden Ears Bridge, highways and the Vancouver convention centre during good times. Vander Zalm didn’t know what he was doing when he was premier, and clearly things have not improved. He doesn’t say how he would have altered the timing of the Olympics

or the U.S.-triggered global recession. For her part, James wants to cancel income tax reductions for “big business” as well as the HST. That would be the big business that has shed all those salaried jobs, and particularly a forest industry being bled white by excessive municipal taxation. Employment figures for B.C. show the recession drove more people to self-employment,

increasing a long-term trend. The elephant in the room that nobody talks about is what I’ll politely call tax avoidance. That plumber in Philadelphia, or his counterpart in Prince George, is almost certainly familiar with the concept of working for cash. Self-employment gives people the ability to declare their income in a somewhat more creative way than get-

ting a pay stub every two weeks. The beauty of consumption taxes is that everyone pays them. Even the dope dealer buying his girlfriend two sports cars in different colours has to pay. Scrap the HST? Sounds great, but then what? Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca.

Bridge by Phillip Alder When I play in a social game with friends, I sometimes see some strange bidding and play. In particular, the inexperienced have difficulty in competitive auctions. Yet they have all heard about the Law of Total Tricks (LTT), which tells them to go as high as the number of trumps in their best fit. (True, there are adjustments one might make in the up or down direction, but it is a reliable guideline.) Look at this deal. With which calls do you disagree? East’s takeout double with 4-3-3-3 distribution and a four-card minor would not appeal to everyone, especially because opposite a passed partner, game is

unlikely. Pass seems wiser. I am not fond of South’s one-spade response on such a poor four-card suit, but a raise to two clubs also has drawbacks. I suppose one should look for a majorsuit fit, horrendous though it might prove to be. West bid three diamonds because he expected his side to have a double fit. Then South unwisely bid three spades. He had nothing extra in suit length or hand strength. He should have passed. Three diamonds was destined to go down one, losing one spade, three hearts and one club. Against three spades, West led the heart 10. In the fullness of time, South lost two spades, two diamonds and two clubs for down two.

When thinking of bidding higher without the number of trumps recommended by the LTT, do so only with a “pure” hand. Have decent trumps, a singleton or void somewhere, aces and kings, and no slow tricks in the opponents’ suit(s).
