Pay raise for council

Vernon Vipers forward Sahir Gill (left) celebrates with teammates Adam Thompson and Kellen Jones after scoring what proved to be the series-clinching goal late in the third period Monday, as the Vipers beat the Powell River Kings 3-1 in the seventh and deciding game of the BCHL’s Fred Page Cup championship series at the Wesbild Centre. See B1, B3 and B4 for more coverage, and www.vernonmorningstar.com for video and reaction from the game.

Armstrong council has voted themselves a pay raise, but the mayor isn’t thrilled about it. Council voted on a pay hike Monday that will see councillor salaries rise 16 per cent from $10,287 a year to $11,935, while Mayor Chris Pieper’s salary will rise nearly 14 per cent to $20,974 from $18,448. Pieper was the only politician to vote against the wage hikes, which take effect immediately. “I was against it because of the economic reality we’re in right now,” said Pieper. “I recommended postponing the raises until Dec. 31 of this year.” Pieper will accept the raise, however. “I’m not sure what I’ll do with it yet,” he said. Council was following a Chris Pieper policy established a number of years ago where stipends are reviewed every two years to make sure the city doesn’t fall behind other likesized populations in B.C. when it comes to council wages. The policy came into place when it was discovered Armstrong had fallen severely behind other provincial municipal counterparts, and the council of the day voted on an approximate 30 per cent pay hike to get caught up. “The policy was adopted many years ago because Armstrong was notorious for not keeping up,” explained Coun. Kelly Rowe, chair of the city’s financial committee. Pieper said the review committee looked at council stipends in 10 similar-sized B.C. municipalities of Enderby, Sicamous, Oliver, Osoyoos, Rossland, Grand Forks, Vanderhoof, Creston, Golden and Sparwood. The highest and lowest salaries were tossed out, and the median of the remaining eight became the figures for Armstrong. Rowe said Armstrong is the lowest taxed of those like-sized communities. “We all think very highly of Armstrong,” she said. “We give a lot of our time because we want to. For most of the people around the table, it’s not the dollars that keep us coming back to the table, it’s to do a good job for our taxpayers in Armstrong. And we feel we do a good job for our taxpayers.” Coun. Ryan Nitchie said it’s tough to swallow to vote in favour of a pay raise for yourself. “However, there’s no other system in place to review stipends for council,” said Nitchie. “I think, for future councillors, the position deserves some fair compensation.”

News Attempted robbery sparks police search BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are investigating after an attempted robbery at the Super-Save Gas station on 25th Avenue and 43rd Street Tuesday afternoon. “We’re investigating a reported robbery,� said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk, who was at the scene of the incident to handle media inquiries. “It was a lone male, his face was covered and he demanded cash.� No weapon was produced and the clerk chose not to comply with the suspect’s demands, forcing him to flee on foot. “The suspect left without any cash in this incident and we had the dog unit called in to see if we could pick up any trail,� said Molendyk. A witness told police the suspect headed to 24th Street behind the gas station and fled in an easterly direction at that point. The dog team combed the area but did not locate a scent. The suspect in Tuesday’s incident is similar to the one described in an April 3 robbery at the Super-Save Gas on 27th Street and one at East Side Liquor Co. on April 6. “It’s an older male, in his mid-50s, soft spoken. So, some similarities to the two previous (incidents),� said Molendyk. RCMP continue to work on the incident with gas station staff, who are reportedly doing relatively well after the altercation.

A Vernon councillor wants every aspect of city operations scrutinized, but he won’t speculate on whether that could lead to layoffs. Coun. Bob Spiers put his colleagues on notice Monday that he wants a core service review done prior to 2011 budget discussions beginning later this year. “Every business should look at what they’re involved in, what services should be cancelled or what services should be expanded,� he said. A recent core services review in Penticton led to that city firing three top managers. Other recommendations to streamline opera-

Mayor Wayne Lippert. Lippert also believes there isn’t a need for Vernon to go through such an extensive process because Penticton has already gone through such an exercise. “We can learn a lot from their experience,� he said of looking at what steps Penticton has taken. “I’m not sure we need to spend a considerable amount of money on a core service review.� The core service review in Penticton cost $70,000, and Coun. Jack Gilroy says that would be a waste of Vernon’s money. “We do small ones every year and we have a great staff. Things are working well in the city,� he said.

Man injured during accident ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP continue to investigate an accident involving a truck and a pedestrian Sunday that sent a Vernon man to Vancouver General Hospital with serious injuries. Police and emergency vehicles were called to the intersection at 32nd Street and 43rd Avenue shortly before 1 p.m. “The investigation shows a 40-year-old male pedestrian was struck by a pontoon boat Gord Molendyk being towed by a Dodge truck,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “Indications are the male might have stepped

off the curb as the truck was making a right-hand turn.” Both the truck and pedestrian had the green light, according to police. The injured man was walking westbound with another male. The two had been coming from the Kin Race Track area. The second man was not injured. “We’ve spoken with a number of witnesses but very few people saw him step off,” said Molendyk. “Traffic parked on 32nd Street thought the boat was dragging something, then they realized it was a person.” The victim was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital and later transferred to Vancouver General. The driver of the truck, from Vernon, was not charged. The incident remains under police investigation.

Cursing draws attention of officer ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP call it a case of how not to draw attention to yourself. One officer was assisting another with a routine traffic stop in the downtown core at around 11 a.m. Friday when a green Sonoma pick-up’s driver rolled down his window and began yelling obscenities at the officers. “One of the officers left and located the vehicle in the 3300 block of 33rd Avenue,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “The driver was stopped but as he was coming to a stop, he put the truck in reverse and backed into the front of the police car.” There was no damage done to the police car because of a protective bumper on the front. While speaking to the driver, police discovered

open liquor in the truck. Police then discovered the driver, who was given a breath demand, was the subject of an impaired driving investigation three weeks prior on March 19. The individual, from Vernon, is 31 and facing a number of alcohol- and driving-related charges in Vernon Provincial Court at a later date.

Police investigators are looking into the possibility of two jewelry store robberies in Vernon and Kamloops being linked. Thieves smashed through the back door of the Village Green Mall Friday at 1:10 a.m., headed to a mall jewelry store, smashed their way in and made off with a number of watches and assorted other jewelry. In Kamloops, police report three people smashed their way into a jewelry store at the Sahali Centre Mall. The three suspects were caught on video surveillance just after 2 a.m. on Saturday, entering the mall by breaking a rear entrance door. The burglars made their way to a jewelry store where they broke through the store’s plate-glass window. The thieves were only in the store for 90 seconds, smashing glass cabinets before making off with $60,000 to $100,000 in gold and diamonds. Mall security and police were on scene less than five minutes after a motion alarm was triggered, but the bandits got away. Investigators are reviewing the surveillance tape, but are taking the unusual step of not releasing a description of the suspects. ---With a file from Kamloops This Week

New Polson Greenway on track RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Plans for a new north-south transportation corridor in Vernon are moving ahead. Council has given its blessing to the Polson Greenway project, which will connect Polson Park to the Village Green Mall along 29th and 30th streets. “Other cities have gone ahead with pathways,” said Ed Stranks, engineering development manager. The improvements will include curb and gutter, sidewalk and parking on the west side, a multi-use path on the east side, water and sewer works and a landscaped boulevard on the east side. Work will be phased in over five years and council has agreed to allocate fund-

“We’ve made revisions to the plans.” — Ed Stranks ing to complete one phase of the project each year starting in 2010 contingent on money being available in the budget. The goal is to get traffic off 32nd and 27th streets. Some merchants in the affected area have expressed concerns about the project, including a potential loss of parking and vehicle/pedestrian conflict. “We’ve made revisions to the plans based on their comments,” said Stranks. “Most of the businesses are

supportive but some businesses are not supportive. We’ve reduced the impact as much as we can.” Some merchants had also expressed concern that the project would start and ultimately not be completed because the city’s focus shifted elsewhere. However, Mayor Wayne Lippert says council’s endorsement of the five-year timeline should address those fears. “It’s wise to show it’s in there and it will be finished,”

he said. A total price tag for the greenway hasn’t been determined but there is $1.27 million allocated in the 2010 budget for phase one — 29th Street between 43rd and 46th avenues. Opposition came from Coun. Bob Spiers, who says infrastructure projects in other parts of Vernon may ultimately become a priority. “I don’t want to commit to a five-year plan. It (greenway) could eat up all of our budget dollars,” he said. However, Coun. Shawn Lee believes the city still has flexibility when it comes to infrastructure. “It’s all contingent on budget availability so we still have that ability to prioritize,” he said.

Downtown office tower gets council endorsement RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Another major development at the east end of downtown Vernon is a step closer to reality. On Monday, council gave third reading to a bylaw that would rezone 2706 30th Avenue and 2903 28th Street from street-oriented commercial to central business district so an office building can be built. “People are excited about this project,” said Coun. Buffy Baumbrough. Nixon Wenger Lawyers hopes to start construction on the building in August or September. The building will be at least four storeys and there would be commercial space, including the Blenz coffee house which is currently on the site. “It will be a real asset to that end of town,” said Coun. Shawn Lee. “A long-standing

“It will be a real asset to that end of town.” — Shawn Lee firm is showing a commitment to downtown.” During a public hearing on the rezoning Monday, only one person spoke — former councillor Barry Beardsell. “I’m not against the proposed change in general but I find it incredible that this would be coming forward without everything tied together, such as parking,” he said. Beardsell asked why the city has not worked out parking details already with the applicant and says other proposed developments, such as the new library, will put pressure on parking in that area.

But city staff indicates parking details will be dealt with during the development permit stage and Nixon Wenger is planning for underground parking on the site as well as surface parking on adjacent land. Beardsell also questioned how the office building will impact the city’s long-term plans to extend 25th Avenue to 27th Street. “The 25th Avenue extension affects this area in a very significant way,” he said. Nixon Wenger must dedicate up to 1,400-square-feet along 30th Avenue for road work, including the

extension. It’s expected that council will adopt the rezoning bylaw April 26. “I’ve had nothing

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block I am continuing with the subject of vehicle expenses for self employed persons. If you make loan payments on your work vehicle you can deduct the loan interest, with restrictions, as well as depreciation, in proportion to business use; similar to fuel and maintenance costs. Leasing costs are also deductible, however depreciation on leased vehicles is not allowed. Specific rules apply when an existing vehicle is turned into a business use vehicle; the fair market value at the time of conversion must be established. You should be keeping an auto log of total kms driven and those driven for business use. Come in and see our tax specialists for more information about this and other topics.

Off track

N

orth Okanagan Regional District directors were quick to fund a feasibility study into an equine centre, but they may be setting up false expectations. After all, if the consultant’s report actually indicates such a centre is viable, the next likely step for the Okanagan Equestrian Society will be to hit up all levels of government — including NORD — to help purchase a large enough tract of land and pump money into development of facilities. And it would be a logical move for the society to do so. After all, it could be said NORD has shown some interest in Richard Rolke the entire proposition by forking out $8,000 for the feasibility study? But the reality is the regional district’s actions are all a ploy. Many of the politicians are hoping that by spending the $8,000, the society will be pacified into dropping its ongoing legal dispute over use of Kin Race Track, and NORD will be able to bulldoze the grandstand and move ahead with sports fields or a Wesbild Centre expansion. There’s also the anticipation among some that a study will clearly prove that an equestrian centre isn’t feasible, and that morale among society members will be dealt a longterm blow. Realistically, there’s a snowball’s chance in you know where that the regional district and its member communities are going to open up the vault and hand over millions of dollars to purchase an enormous piece of land and con-

struct barns and facilities for racing, gaming and veterinary care. Besides, capital wouldn’t be the end of it. There’s always a chance that taxpayers would be asked to subsidize operations, particularly if the study was wrong about viability. The potential costs for any level of government could be endless. NORD directors should also be aware and that support for an equestrian centre isn’t a slam dunk. At a recent meeting, it was obvious that the major thrust for another site primarily comes from the Okanagan Equestrian Society executive while a lot of rank-and-file members suggest that relocation weakens the group’s legal case and any attempts to remain at the Kin track. “We only have one race track. Forget about moving the trace track. If we do that, we lose the strongest point — the history,” said one woman. For those who have raced, trained horses, volunteered or wagered at Kin Trace Track, there is a loyalty to the site which has been used continuously since 1885. Buy-in for a new location could be weak no matter what the final report says, and NORD directors have just found themselves caught between competing interests. Ultimately, though, it is the regional district that’s playing games. There is little desire in actively getting involved with development of an equestrian centre and officials are only interested in bringing the legal dispute at Kin Race Track to an end. And if that means spending $8,000 in taxpayers’ dollars, so be it.

It’s obvious that a majority of Armstrong city council members have challenges recalling recent events. It was only back in November that they blasted Okanagan Regional Library for hiking its executive director’s salary by 7.9 per cent. “That’s a complete disconnect and a sense of entitlement,” said Coun. John Trainor at the time. “The recession has had a devastating impact in the Okanagan and major employers are struggling. I’ve heard of families where both wage earners have lost their jobs.” But on Monday, council — except for Mayor Chris Pieper — voted to boost their remuneration. Pay for the mayor will jump 14 per cent, while it will increase 16 per cent for each of the six councillors. Obviously elected politicians should be compensated fairly, particularly because the time to commit to the community takes away from families and careers. However, the same comments that Trainor and his colleagues directed towards ORL late last year apply now. Is there not a sense of entitlement that politicians can just vote themselves a raise? Yes there is a procedural mechanism to do so, but that doesn’t mean they have to. Are council members oblivious to the fact that many residents are still struggling with the recession? How many of Armstrong’s taxpayers have lost their jobs or seen their own wages frozen? Had council opted to follow the cost of living, opposition over an increase would largely be muted. But hikes of 14 and 16 per cent are not justifiable. If anything, Armstrong council has proven that the previous defense of taxpayers’ funds was hollow.

Business benefits but...

I

've been hearing for months how the HST is going to be the wonderful tax which will be the saviour for all British Columbians with the emphasis on "all" in Friday March 12 Morning Star Page A15. Eric Foster, aka the mouthpiece puppet, undertook to explain how this tax will help us. Well, the magic formula goes something like this, and I quote: "The harmonized sales tax will cut the effective tax on new business investment in B.C. by 40 per cent. It will also remove $2 billion in costs for forestry, construction, mining, oil and gas, transportation and $30 million in administration costs and that will save B.C.ers $180 million annually."

Isn't it amazing that the benefits mentioned seem to be aimed at the corporate sector. How to go, Gordo. I'm sure the Liberal war chest

TRULY GOLDEN The 2010 winter Olympics will remain unforgettable, but in my opinion the most deserving team did not get the gold. My Olympic experience began like most other Canadians, tracking the Olympic flame as it travelled through the cities and towns of our great country. Over the past few weeks, my Olympic experience has taken a major turn. While going on walks, I started to get a burning sensation and pressure on my chest after a short distance. At first I attributed it to being overweight and out of shape. I decided to contact my family physician. He assured me this was angina pain and immediately set me up with a heart specialist. Within a week, he had me scheduled for a stress test at VJH. I failed the test, was admitted to the hospital and sent to Kelowna for an angiogram. The results showed that I needed open heart surgery with quadruple bypass. Within a week I was airlifted to the Vancouver General Hospital. I arrived on Sunday and had my surgery on Monday. Sunday night I was still able to watch the Olympic fireworks from the hospital window. I rejoiced with every Canadian who won a medal and am proud of Canada’s overall standing in the medal count. However, I feel that my medical team in Vernon and Vancouver truly deserve the gold medal. I would like to give a big bouquet to my family physician Dr. David Arnold, my specialist Dr. Glenn Vaz, my surgeon in Vancouver Dr. Virginia Gudas, the entire

will be gratefully acknowledged come election time. I would like at this time to remind the area folks of the Lavington glass plant and 20 or

so others across this great land which were bought up with foreign corporate dollars with encouragement of federal and provincial governments, only to have them do like the birds in the fall, head due south, but unlike the birds, they won't return. As a pensioner on a fixed income, I'd like to know what's in it for me and the poor, the mothers of single parent homes with children to feed? I'd like to venture a guess in closing that the true costs of putting on the Olympics will never be known until after the next provincial election with some great creative accounting. Bill Frohlick

SHUSWAP DRAINAGE Would you knowingly drink a glass of water that contained a cocktail of bacteria, fecal matter, unknown pharmaceuticals, hormones, and dish soap? I wouldn't. That is exactly what is expected of the citizens of the Shuswap watershed by allowing greywater discharge into the lake. These discharges not only affect humans but also disrupt the complex ecological web of life of which humans are only one strand. The laws are on the books and it is time to enforce them. Care of the environment trumps economics. Without the environment there would be no economy. The big issue seems to be who should pay for pumpout stations. It seems to me that the user and or the people who are making money from the boating industry should pay. If they don't have the dollars right now, the government should set up the stations and get paid back over time. I am working on a project, The Shuswap Watershed Project, encourage the citizens of the Shuswap preserve, protect, and restore our water-

PENSIONS NOT INCREASED I am writing concerning the Old Age Security Pension. As of October 2008, the pensioners have not had an increase in their pension. As we all know, prices of food and gas have gone up since the downturn in the economy, also with the new HST that will be implemented beginning in July 2010, will make it harder for us pensioners to manage. As you may be aware, in Jim Flaherty's budget he spoke about looking after our pensioners. My question to Mr. Mayes is, "Would you look into this very important matter. We cannot survive on the very small allowance that we are receiving at the moment. I have received information that there is a Bill C-428 before the House to amend the OAS Pension Act so that new immigrants only have to wait three years instead of 10 years to receive the OAS Pension. The first priority is for the government to look after the pensions of the pensioners that we have now, not the new ones at this time. I will be looking for a reply as to what the government will be doing about this very important matter of a delayed pay increase for our pensioners. Roy H. Burgess

RELOCATE TRACK Regarding the possible relocating of Kin Race Track to another location. A thought came to mind that may well resolve the issues for the city and Okanagan Equestrian Society. Why not move the site to O'Keefe Ranch? The city owns both these sites. O'Keefe Ranch must be subsidized each year to remain in operation. In that way, any monies spent to run Kin Race Track would also help prop up this historical site for the tourism value. It's called consolidation. Perhaps, such a move may even attract more tourists and locals to O'Keefe, which means more revenue for the restaurant, gift shop and paid events it could attract. Sounds to me like a win, win situation for everyone. Tony May

Bella Vista plan goes back to public for input RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It’s back to the drawing board for a controversial land use plan in a Vernon neighbourhood. City council has decided not to give third reading to the Bella Vista West neighbourhood plan. Instead, changes to the document are being sought, which means Wayne Lippert another public hearing will have to be held. “The decision allows council to get clarity,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert. Lippert believes residents and some council members didn’t fully understand the process specifically when it came to one property. “This is land designation and not rezoning. We want information back and more control over what happens there,” he said.

Some Tronson Road residents had expressed concern that the neighbourhood plan would allow for up to 123 apartment units on three acres of a 22.5-acre site (most of it is fairly steep). Current zoning could allow for up to 120 single-family residences. As part of the new public hearing and revised bylaw, council will consider changing the land use designation for that specific property from hillside residential apartment to residential low density. Coun. Jack Gilroy says there is sensitive ecosystem on the property and single-family residential development will have a larger footprint. “To protect that area, we should go with the apartment,” he said. Coun. Patrick Nicol supports hearing from the public again and taking another look at the plan. “We need to think this through very thoughtfully,” he said. “We’re not as clear as we should be.” Council will hold a second public hearing May 10.

and if we can have an improved entrance to the city, it will be much better.” But while the north end centre may reopen this year, that doesn’t preclude a proposal to centralize all tourist information services at one central location in Vernon. “It will take two, three or four years before something is done with that,” said Lippert.

Dear Realtor Mike, What is Dual Agency in Real Estate?

Answer: Dual Agency occurs when a Brokerage is representing both the Buyer and the Seller in the same transaction. Since the Brokerage has promised a duty of confidentiality, loyalty and full disclosure to both parties, it is necessary to limit these

duties if both parties consent. You will be asked to sign a Limited Dual Agency Agreement. The Brokerage will deal impartially with both sides. It will have a duty of disclosure to both except that it will not reveal motivation, price or personal information which is not otherwise necessary for the deal.

Local water projects get funds Morning Star Staff

Three North Okanagan projects that will help improve water quality conservation and quality have tapped into funding. The Okanagan Basin Water Board is providing support for water quality enhancement along Coldstream Creek, water source assessment and protection in Armstrong and bacterial source tacking at the Kalamalka lake intake. “It’s so gratifying to be able to support fantastic – and important – projects in this valley that may otherwise have sat idle or taken longer to complete,” said Genevieve Dunbar, grants administrator for the OBWB. The District of Coldstream will receive $15,500 to restore two high priority areas along Coldstream

Creek. The work will include livestock fencing, replanting of riparian areas, livestock crossings and bank regrading. The North Okanagan Regional District will receive $18,000 to identify probable sources of fecal pollution at each of the Kal Lake water intakes. Knowing the sources and concentration of each source will allow for more targeted control programs such as dog area restrictions or goose management. The City of Armstrong is being provided with $25,000 to complete a source protection plan for the Fortune Creek watershed. The city will also review the status of licenses on the creek in an effort to better understand demand and available supply.

Trail society gets OK for new paths BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

A local hiking group will be able to create trails that would introduce a complete circuit of walking paths around Middleton Mountain. The Ribbons of Green Trail Society had been seeking approval from Coldstream council to go ahead with the proposal submitted to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee in October of last year. They were given the OK on Monday evening. “We’re really heading in the right direction,” said society member Brad Smith. Trails already in place have proved popular with outdoor

“What we’re trying to do is complete that circle trail.” — Ingrid Neumann enthusiasts. “People are hiking them everyday,” noted society member Ingrid Neumann. “What we’re trying to do is complete that circle trail.” New trails will be marked off by members of the trail society. “We’d like to offer to provide volunteers to stake those trails under supervision of the District of Coldstream,” said Neumann, adding that her

talks with parks and recreation and district staff indicate that shouldn’t be difficult. “That would complete the first stage of our proposal.” Council was pleased with the offer and were assured their staff won’t have to do the physical work. The only guidance the society needs is on jurisdictional boundaries and risks associated with trails on steep slopes. Currently, there are popular

trails along the south end of Middleton Mountain above the train tracks and the Hydroline Trail between Mt. Ida Drive and Sarsons Road. Proposed paths include one on Husband Road to Middleton Way behind Orchard Ridge Drive, one connecting Kalamalka Road to Middleton way just south of Sawicki Park and trails through Middleton Mountain’s reservoir and park on Mt. Tod Drive. Neumann checked with parks and recreation to determine there is $79,000 earmarked for trail development this year and she hopes to get started with her volunteers right away.

They have a sixth sense about stolen vehicles. Two Vernon Citizens on Patrol volunteers, who have been responsible for the recovery of more than 50 stolen vehicles, added to their number on the weekend, helping local police recover a Ford van stolen out of Williams Lake. “All stolen vehicles in B.C. are downloaded onto a Palm Pilot which the volunteers carry, and that’s how they have access to the licence plate numbers,” explained Vernon RCMP spokes-

man Gord Molendyk. “These two volunteers have been amazing in helping police recover stolen vehicles.” On Saturday, shortly before 10:30 p.m., the pair ran the number of the van parked at the 7-Eleven on 32nd Street and 39th Avenue, discovered it was stolen and called police. When the police vehicle pulled into 7-Eleven, the van pulled out. In a hurry. “The van took off at a high rate of speed, and tried to make the corner at 39th Avenue and 33rd Street,” said Molendyk. “However, the van lost

control and plowed into the Interior Logging Association building.” Three people inside the van were arrested and taken into custody. Two of the suspects were also treated for injuries. A male suspect was treated for minor head injuries, and a female suspected was treated for leg injuries. One man and the woman are both 27 and from Alberta. The third person in the van was a 29-year-old Vernon man. The two men were held in custody pending a Monday appearance in Vernon Provincial Court

on charges of possession of stolen property and driving-related charges. The woman was released from custody. Nobody was inside the ILA building, which received significant damage as a result of the crash. The van was also badly damaged.

News Committee to investigate Kal Lake

PERFECT FIT

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan Regional Directors want to know how good the quality of water is in Kal Lake and the surrounding watersheds. Directors voted to form an ad-hoc committee to look into Kal Lake following presentations from two groups concerned about a number of problems. “The idea is to form a committee and find out just how bad the problem is,” said Lumby director Kevin Acton. “We need to get all of the information and make some informed decisions.” Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake spokesman Trina Koch presented a list of 14 concerns to NORD directors, including perceived effluent from Silver Star flowing into the lake, a concern echoed in a same-day presentation by Citizen’s Coalition to Save Silver Star Provincial Park spokes-

man Randy Schellenberg. Other concerns expressed by Koch were failing septic tanks, development, landfill groundwater flowing into the lake, composting, spray irrigation, and cattle feedlots.

Providing respect, comfort and compassion in life’s final journey since 1984.

One Family’s Voice We first met with Philip Pool and his family in late January 2010, while Philip was a Hospice House resident. Philip’s wife Debra and three of their six children, Gillian 17, Thomas 14 and Matthew 12 were present to share their Hospice experiences with us. Their eldest child, Andrew 19, was competing in Lake Placid, New York as part of the Can West Provincial Mogul Team and he participated in this article via email.

until the end. The time spent with Philip at Hospice is quality time. The kids can come and visit, do puzzles and even stay overnight in Philip’s room.” “We can visit him without having to deal with the hard parts,” explains Gillian. “Hospice has really helped my peace of mind in knowing that my dad has everything he needs at his disposal to comfortably spend each day that I cannot be with him,” says Andrew.

The Pools have hosted dinner parties and maintained date nights while at Hospice. Philip and Debra’s 11 yearold daughter, Elizabeth, has learning disabilities, but the Pools have never had to worry about her while visiting Hospice. She has helped volunteers Philip on ski patrol at Silver Star at mealtime and in folding laundry. Mountain Resort “This just reinforces the whole family environment,” explains Debra. “We were switching the medication so that we could make our last Christmas together the best Christmas “Hospice House is equipped to allow you to maintain ever,” states Debra. “We were surprised when our as much independence and dignity you can handle,” family physician suggested that Philip apply for a says Philip. “The amount of staff and volunteer day pass at Christmas, instead of coming home to support at Hospice is outstanding and the facility is stay. We were going to nurse him at home, but once always immaculate. There are always choices at mealwe saw how comfortable the kids were at Hospice time, they try and accommodate you in any way House, it made sense for him to stay.” possible. You don’t feel like you’re in an institution. I like that I can have a bath when it’s convenient for Philip’s whole family has been part of his care plan. me and the staff, not just because Monday night is They are relieved at how open and individualized bath night.” it is. Philip was able to go home for Christmas, New Year’s, as well as additional days when he could. “Hospice House is a gift to the community,” remarks “Hospice is a house that’s open with the thought of Debra, “our friends have been so moved when regular life,” states Debra. they come and see how lovely it is. There may be apprehension for some before they walk through the “I am able to be his wife and not have to be his doors, but once you are at Hospice there is a peace caregiver. There is so much peace for me at night that only exists at Hospice. I believe that my kids will when I leave, I don’t have to worry about him,” says have the best memories possible, while watching Debra. “Hospice House is your home. It’s a place their father pass away.” where you can treat your days as normal as possible Philip was originally at Hospice for a five day respite admission to monitor a change in his cancer medication. Although the Pools had some prior contact with hospice palliative care through family and friends, this was their first experience with Hospice House.

Debra and Gillian are touched by the compassion of both staff and volunteers. Gillian smiles as she remembers coming in one day to see a nurse rubbing Philip’s feet with cream to help his circulation. Debra is interested in taking the volunteer training at some point and is aware of the integral part volunteers play in all programs and services at Hospice and in the community. “I was so moved when I attended one of the volunteer-run memorial services that take place here every two months.” Grief and bereavement counseling services are available at Hospice. Debra took advantage of the anticipatory grief counselling services when she first received the news that Philip wasn’t going to be going home. The kids haven’t accessed Hospice counseling services yet, as they have been supported by family, friends, McMurtry Baerg Cancer Center and school counsellors. Philip’s journey was made complete with Debra and Andrew by his side on March 15. Gillian was on her way from work and Thomas was arriving from Ontario at 7:30 pm. At Debra’s request, Hospice staff kept Philip at Hospice until Thomas could come and say good-bye. “There’s a beautiful continuity with Hospice,” explains Debra, “there’s the same compassion and dignity for everyone who experiences it.” The Pool family has donated to Hospice in the past and will continue to do so through memorial giving on Philip’s behalf. Hospice relies on the generosity of the community to ensure the delivery of quality programs and services. “Hospice allows you to live life to the fullest, until the end, whether it’s 3 or 20 weeks. Everyone at Hospice works together to achieve the same goal,” reflected Philip, “to provide quality end of life care.”

Let’s Talk About Hospice

Palliative Care

History Bytes and Fast Facts about your Hospice From its humble beginnings working out of a room in Vernon Jubilee Hospital, to the current program of comprehensive hospice palliative care services, North Okanagan Hospice Society has always had the same vision of offering respect, comfort and compassion in life’s final journey.

1.

In 1983, a small interest group forms with the assistance of Dennis Chalifoux, Director of Social Services at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, with the purpose of visiting those with a palliative diagnosis.

2.

On October 16, 1984 Vernon and District Hospice Society incorporates with an elected Board of Directors. The objective of the Society is to “support the rights of dying individuals and their families to death with dignity”. The Society offers supportive services to those with a palliative diagnosis and their loved ones in Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington, Lumby, Cherryville Armstrong, Enderby and Spallumcheen.

3.

4.

Vernon and District Hospice Society is a founding member of the British Columbia Hospice Palliative Care Association, formed to represent and advocate for Hospice in our province. Trained volunteers provide social, emotional and spiritual support in home, hospital or residential facilities. To the present day, trained volunteer support forms the foundation of hospice palliative care services in our country.

5.

Early in the Society’s history, the Board of Directors set goals around building public awareness and understanding of hospice palliative care — an important commitment that continues today.

6.

By 1990 the Society offers a number of grief and bereavement services including individual counseling and group support programs. New programs are developed in response to community need; the newest program for Pregnancy Loss was initiated in 2009.

7.

By 1996, palliative clients in the North Okanagan want an alternative to hospital admission when care at home becomes too difficult. In response to this need, Vernon and District Hospice Society starts planning for a freestanding Hospice House. The North Okanagan Regional Health Authority turns down a proposal to provide operating funds.

8.

Share the Vision, Build the Dream is launched in 1999 with the goal of raising $1.3 million to build a six-bed Hospice House and provide for the first year of operations.

9.

On March 12, 2001 the first residential client is admitted to Hospice House. More than 100 clients receive care annually in the residential program. It is estimated that for every person in care, five loved ones also receive care and support. Outreach volunteer and grief services continue to be offered in the community wherever the client resides.

10. In 2001, the Society establishes an endowment

fund with the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan and launches a planned giving program as part of its strategy for long-term sustainability of quality programs.

11. By 2004 it is evident that more beds are required

to meet the need for residential hospice palliative care services in the North Okanagan. Vernon and District Hospice Society successfully enters into negotiations with Interior Health Authority for operational funding to support twelve hospice beds.

12. On November 30, 2006, our volunteer fundraising cabinet, under the leadership of the Board of Directors, launches Share the Vision, Grow the Dream to raise $3.2 million to expand Hospice House to twelve beds. The project is completed on time and under budget, with all twelve beds operational by July 15, 2008.

13. Vernon and District Hospice Society changes

14. Hospice programs and services are provided by an interdisciplinary team of registered nurses, resident care aides, social worker, grief counselor, physicians, pharmacists, support staff and trained volunteers.

15. Referrals for Hospice residential and

community services come from self, family, friends, doctors, hospital and community care nurses. Everyone is eligible for admission to Hospice House and for service in the community.

16. Admission criteria for Hospice House is based on the following:

• Palliative diagnosis is confirmed by the physician • Individuals are in the final six months of life and may be admitted for up to a three month period • Respite care is also available for 1-2 weeks for pain and symptom management or caregiver support • Clients or their designate agrees to sign the No CPR form

17. Fees for Hospice House clients are

mandated by BC Ministry of Health and are equal to the minimum daily residential rate; in 2010 that rate is $29.40. No-one is turned away from Hospice House due to an inability to pay.

The progress made by North Okanagan Hospice Society over the last 25 years is the result of strong community engagement. Residents of the North Okanagan are committed to quality end-of-life care and demonstrate that commitment through providing generous gifts of time, talent and financial resources. There is tremendous power in this partnership of many! Let us celebrate how far we have come since 1984 on the journey toward respect, comfort and compassion in life’s final journey.

Discovering Your Voice: Let’s Talk About

Advance Care Planning Throughout our life we make important personal choices about where we live, our home, what kind of career we aspire to, and so on. And yet, one of the most important personal choices we face is our choice for future medical care when we are no longer able to communicate our wishes. The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association (CHPCA), the Canadian Society of Palliative Care Physicians and North Okanagan Hospice Society believe in the right to have high quality hospice palliative care for all Canadians at end of life. Hospice palliative care aims to relieve suffering and improve the quality of living and dying for clients and their loved ones by addressing physical, emotional, social, spiritual and practical needs at end of life. Many Canadians are unsure of what to expect at the end of life. To ensure quality end of life for ourselves and our loved ones, it is imperative that we begin to engage in Advance Care Planning dialogue. Advance care planning is a process of reflection and communication in which a person

who is capable, makes decisions about future health and personal care in the event that they become incapable of giving informed consent. It is important to be able to communicate wishes and values to loved ones or substitute decision makers, and document those choices, so that health care providers are fully aware of our personal choices at a time of life, when it may not be easy for us to understand and communicate those choices. Advance Care Planning involves: •

Thinking about what gives life meaning

Talking to health care providers, family and friends about future health care wishes

Thinking about who a person would like to speak for them, when they cannot speak for themselves

Recording goals and wishes

So, let’s talk about Advance Care Planning and give voice to our choices for future medical care. Let’s talk about hospice palliative care in our community. Let’s talk about quality end of life care for all residents of the North Okanagan.

Full-body scanners return to airport ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

The full-body scanner is back at Kelowna International Airport. After serving as the site for a pilot project for the scanner in 2008 and 2009 and not making the announced cut for the first 44 machines — which were to be installed at the eight largest airports in the country earlier this year — it turns out Kelowna is not only among the first airports in Canada to get one but it is the first level two airport to have one. According to airport spokeswoman Jenelle Hynes, the $250,000 machine was installed by the Canadian Air Transport Security Authority in the general pre-board screening area last month — during the pilot project it was in a segregated area — and is only being used for U.S.-bound passengers selected for secondary screening. Even then, the passenger has the choice of a physical pat down instead. The scanners take a full-body, 360-degree negative picture of the person who stands inside a circular, clear Plexiglas chamber. Metal items under clothing can be seen in the image. During the pilot project here, 32,000 people were scanned and surveys showed 95

per cent preferred the scanner to a normal metal detector. The survey also found 93 per cent would use it again and 90 per cent had no privacy concerns about the scanner despite the revealing image it produced. The machines did, however, prove slower than regular metal detector scans and there were blank spots left over heads and at the top of feet in the images. Shor tly after announcing the fullbody scanners would be installed at large airports such as Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver, Ottawa, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg and Halifax, federal Minister of State for Transport Rob Merrifield told the Capital News that despite Kelowna hosting the pilot project and not being on the list, he expected a scanner to be located here “sooner rather than later.” The scanners were announced for Canadian and the U.S. airports following a failed attempt by a lone terrorist to blow up a U.S. flight bound for Detroit on Christmas Day. At Ke l ow n a International, all passengers will still have to pass through a metal detector in the preboard screening area

and only if they are selected for secondary search will they be given the option of the full body scanner or a physical pat down. CATSA officials will view the images of the person being scanned in another room so they cannot physically

see the person being scanned and records of the scans will not be kept. According to CATSA, of the 44 machines slated for the first round of installations, 14 have already been placed in airports in Kelowna, Toronto,

High-potential class at risk of being cut

www.vernonmorningstar.com

TAMMY THIELMAN Black Press

Dynamic teacher Herb Latchko enjoys watching students thrive. In Latchko’s multi-grade elementary class, keen students may explore internal combustion motors, or how electricity is created, or read Grade 10-level literature. They might study the mathematical concept Pi, or take apart a lawn mower and discuss alternate energy. Latchko teaches the high potential or gifted class at Ranchero Elementary. However, school district budget cuts are threatening this unique learning environment. Salmon Arm trustee and school board chair Bobbi Johnson is uncertain about the future of the high-potential class and the format in which services will be delivered. “There are over 200 gifted students in the district. We are looking at how we can get all the kids some extra help. We have some wonderful people attached to the gifted program and whatever they do will be the best for the kids.” But rumours of proposed shut downs for the Ranchero program has parents of gifted learners worried. “Giftedness crosses all social and economic levels,” explained Salmon Arm parent Karin Wilkie. “The class is not elitist.” Some gifted children struggle with behaviour issues, Wilkie continued. Her son Dominik, 11, has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). While he thrives in the high-potential class, he had trouble coping in a regular classroom. “Many gifted kids have such strong minds and opinions. They sometimes don’t understand social rules. In the high potential class, the teacher is equipped to deal with this well.” Wilkie points out that without the class, some gifted children have such trouble coping that they sometimes end up in the alternate program. “Their academic development may be ahead, but emotionally they may be a few years behind. This class addresses their social needs. It teaches them life and coping skills for the years ahead. They can feel like outcasts. For some kids, this is the first time they’ve had a friend.”

“There are over 200 gifted students...” — Bobbi Johnson Wilkie’s oldest daughter Natalie, 9, has Asperger’s syndrome – a type of high functioning autism – and will likely be going into the high potential class next year, if it still exists. Part of teaching the class is communicating with children who are “twice exceptional.” “They are gifted but also have another challenge, like ADD, or a sensory processing disorder.” Wilkie points out that not all gifted children have behavioural issues. “The class is wonderful for any gifted child, or for children who are gifted in one area and are challenged in others.” Wilkie is part of a small, determined group of parents hoping to keep the class going. “It’s been a fairly well-kept secret that’s about to disappear. Parents had to work hard to get this in the first place. If it’s gone, it’ll be hard to get back.” Latchko is hopeful the class will continue. Nine students from Blind Bay, Armstrong, and around Salmon Arm currently attend the class. However, there is room for more, from grades four to seven. “It’d be great to have 12, 15 or 18 students,” said Latchko. “Transportation is the number one barrier preventing more students from attending.” Wilkie would like parents of in-town students to know there is a connecting bus from Shuswap Middle School to Ranchero. Latchko’s own struggles with dyslexia drew him to working with those who have different learning styles. In the high potential class, he helps eager students recognize their strengths. “In my heart, I hope there will be a program next year. Most parents are really happy with it. Most students who come to visit, they like it, they stay. Often they feel like they are on the fringe. They form a bond here.” Wilkie can be reached at 832-9959.

Artists alternative is still here Morning Star Staff

Members of the North Okanagan Artists Alternative have reason to celebrate. This year is the 10th anniversary of their home, Gallery Vertigo. The landmark is being recognized with NOAA’s ninth annual juried exhibition, entitled Still Here. “Surviving and prospering in a difficult economic climate is no small feat,” said Gallery Vertigo director Judith Jurica. “The fact that we are still here is largely due to those people who work on the front lines, the volunteers.” The NOAA started as a small group of artists looking for alternate venues to exhibit their challenging and experimental works. After Vertigo was opened in the summer of 2000, the NOAA made it its permanent home and has since grown to include more than 140 members. “The longevity of the organization and the continued existence of this venue is clear testament to the fact that much needed services and opportunities are being provided here and that an alternative gallery continues to be relevant in this community,” said Jurica. The works in this year’s exhibition represent a wide variety of mediums and different approaches to art making. Close to 50 artists are represented in the show with examples of stone carving, assemblage, woodcut and lino prints, bronze sculpture, assemblage, and drawing and painting. “It is a strong group of works that clearly displays the depth of talent we enjoy in the North Okanagan region,” said Jurica. More than 100 works of art were submitted, with juror Wanda Lock making the final decision of what the public will see. A resident of Lake Country, Lock graduated from Emily Carr College of Art and Design in 1992. Her recent exhibitions include Pitching Tents at the Vernon Public Art Gallery in 2009 and Stacks and Piles at the

Kelowna Art Gallery in 2008. “(Lock) has succeeded in creating an exciting and unified exhibition from the diverse works put forth for selection,” said Jurica. “She has graciously consented to attend the opening reception and will present a short talk about the jurying process.” Besides the NOAA juried exhibition, Vertigo will also host Jaime Seward’s Enlightenment Series on the NOAA’s featured members wall. “My personal journey (having a kidney removed due to a genetic disorder, dialysis, and waiting a transplant) and my awareness of the needs of our human

and animal family, combined with the need for awareness of Mother Earth and her needs, has led me deeper down my path of meditation to the love and light that is available to us all. This series is testament to that journey,” said Seward in her artist’s statement. Vertigo’s street level window gallery is featuring Kevin Michael Witzke’s Time Machine, Earth and Water. Witzke’s current series of work looks directly at the concepts and devices involved in time. “With Time Machine I have created a device to investigate time and to document its markings. When observing the

work I encourage you to become an archaeologist, a scientist, and student of the past. The markings reveal a history you read on the canvas document,” he said. An opening reception for all exhibitions happens Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. Master of ceremonies will be local actor Matt Brown, who will introduce local writers and performers throughout the reception. Complimentary coffee and cake will be served. Everyone is welcome, and admission is by donation. All exhibitions continue to May 16 at Vertigo, located upstairs at 3001-31st St., downtown Vernon.

Dance for Tanzania helps those at risk

Holding a live entertainment/arts event? Get listed.

Morning Star Staff

E-mail MorningStar’s

The Mark Rose Big Band hosts a benefit dance for humanitarian efforts in Tanzania Friday at Paddlewheel Park Hall. The event is in support of Vernon resident Nicole Reim, currently a student at the University of Minnesota, who travels with the school’s student volunteer organization Biology Without Borders in June to help children and others at risk in the East African country. Besides working with patients in an AIDS clinic, Reim will volunteer at Tanzania’s Mugeza boarding school for disabled and albino children, and will help build a rainwater collection system for the Bukoba Girls’ Secondary School. Biology Without Borders have organized clothing drives on the University of Minnesota campus for Mugeza’s albino children, as they need long-sleeved shirts, hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen to protect their skin and eyes from the sun. Albino children live with the daily fear they will be persecuted because of their condition, writes a Biology Without Borders member, who helped at the

school last year. “Tanzania and Kenya are not safe places for albino Africans. This is because some people think they are magical and that if they were to take a bone, limb, tooth, etc. from these albino children they are going to find gold or strike it rich,” said the student. Mugeza school serves as a safe haven for these children and they now have a 24-hour guard to watch over the school. More than 100 disabled (both mentally and physically) children and albino children live at the school full time, with only two adults to take care of them. “In an attempt to improve the health of these children, our job at Mugeza was to just clean up and help with some upkeep and maintenance. The children’s beds had bugs in the wood of their frames, and with only two adults in charge, the living conditions were almost unbearable,” said the student. Last year, Biology Without Borders also built a garden for students at Bukoba Girls’ Secondary School. “There are about 50 girls that attend this school and they had been eating the same

Get inspired by water Morning Star Staff

“Water is life” is an often quoted truth, but water can also be art. Runaway Moon Theatre’s Reflection Community Art Project is a celebration of water through making music, dance, ceramics, fabric design, and theatre. Everyone is invited to bring out their inner artist and join in on the fun in a series of free drop-in art-making workshops. Murray MacDonald has been offering a music workshop series through the spring at the Enderby museum, and will be holding another session Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. “He offers a playful, relaxed environment where making music inspired by water just flows,” said Runaway Moon publicist Jaci Metivier. On the weekend, two more workshops continue the fun with different

art forms. Dancer and teacher Kristi Christian will be leading a movement and dance workshop Saturday from 3 to 4 p.m. at the Anglican Hall in Enderby. “She’s exploring ideas for water movement and is looking for eager movers and shakers of any age, experience or mobility level,” said Metivier. Potter Stephen Plant will be sharing his skills with clay on Sunday from 11:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Participants will spend the day shaping clay into water-bearing vessels and then firing them in a pit. The workshop will be held in a residential backyard at 311 Regent Ave. (turn east off Highway 97A at Regent Ave., two blocks north of downtown Enderby.) Bring a bag lunch. For more information, visit www. runawaymoon.org or call 250-306-3935.

Sex and teens lecture draws parents MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

If you think your teenager knows way too much about sex, you’re probably wrong. Cathi Johnston, North Okanagan-Shuswap School District family life teacher, gave a talk to parents on March 31 entitled ‘Youth and sexuality in our fast-changing world.’ She said the Internet and other media are exposing young people to much more than they once were, but that doesn’t mean they’re learning what they need to. “The assumptions adults have about teen sexuality are usually wrong,” she said. “Teens have lots of information, but they don’t have basic knowledge.” Johnston has a ‘question bag’ where students can place questions they would like to have answered. She said she has been getting more concerned over the past two to three years about the questions being asked, particularly by the younger grades six and seven. “Questions totally inappropriate for the age of the children,” she said. However, she recently attended a workshop with other professionals from across Canada and found they are all experiencing the same phenomenon. Media and technology, she said, are having an impact. Johnston noted that advertising and movies include much more sexual content these days such as open-mouthed kissing, even intercourse. She said some disturbing questions have arisen because young people are watching cartoon shows that are intended for adult audiences such as Family Guy and South Park. She said students have asked her, for instance, what happens if you have ear sex. That, she discovered, is a term they heard on Family Guy. A lot of the content on such cartoon shows centres around dysfunctional families, with the humour based on putdowns and abuse, she said.

“One kid thought it should be illegal for anyone over 30 to have sex.” — Cathi Johnston “Kids don’t understand it’s dysfunctional.” She also pointed to reality shows such as Jersey Shore which contain explicit sex as well as violence directed against females. “The message young people get from the media is that everybody’s having sex. Kids think, ‘well, what’s wrong with me?’” She said students in Grades 6 and 7 have asked her about oral and anal sex. Some students have expressed the belief that if it’s not intercourse, it’s not really sex. She tells them that it’s possible to get pregnant with anal sex, and that sexually transmitted diseases are still a serious danger with these types of activity. Johnston said she has been asked at what age you should start having sex. She said she tells students it’s not an age, it’s a responsibility. She tells them you shouldn’t have sex until you’re ready to become a parent. She tells them they shouldn’t have sex unless they can talk about sex with their partner – something she says that often repulses the questioner. She tells them about the risks of sexually transmitted diseases, noting that the rate is higher for teens. She asks them, what if their parents found out? What if their friends found out? Johnston said the highest rate of sexually transmitted diseases is for teens and the next highest, surprising though it may seem, is seniors. “That grosses out kids. One kid thought it should be illegal for anyone over 30 to have sex.” She notes studies from Health Canada and the McCreary Centre which show that while information about sex may be widespread, a small percentage of students in B.C. are actually having sex. Johnston says a lot

of students don’t know what a good relationship is – one that features such qualities as respect and honesty. More young people are stalking their partners, keeping tabs on their every movement via cell phone. She said girls are

maturing earlier than boys. “That’s why boys at the middle school want to sit down and talk.” In fact, talking is what parents need to do, because most students, boys and girls, are hungry for basic knowledge. Johnston emphasized that parents should talk with their children, not to them. They don’t want a lecture, but they do want knowledge. “They need help to sort out the information.

They need someone to talk with.” She noted that parents shouldn’t be intimidated if they feel they don’t know enough. “It’s okay not to know everything,” she said, adding that young people whose parents talk with them about issues such as sexually transmitted diseases and birth control tend to wait longer to have sex. Johnston says a helpful website for both parents and teens is: www.

EDITOR: Kevin MitchellssSPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM

GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR

The Vernon Vipers mob netminder Graeme Gordon to celebrate their successful defence of the BCHL Fred Page Cup Championship Monday night at Wesbild Centre. The Vipers stopped the Powell River Kings 3-1 in a Game 7 thriller to advance to the Doyle Cup Championship. Check out www.vernonmorningstar.com for video coverage of Game 7, including player interviews.

SNAKES IN SEVENTH HEAVEN It was everything a Game 7 of a Fred Page Cup Championship should be. Plenty of hits, heart-on-your sleeve hustle, game-saving stops and last-minute heroics, all fuelled by two teams running on fumes. And, of course, there was the elation for the Vernon Vipers as they successfully defended their B.C. Hockey League championship before a packed house Monday night at Wesbild Centre. Sahir Gill collected the winner on an oddman rush with linemates Connor and Kellen Jones with five minutes remaining as the Snakes iced the Powell River Kings 3-1. Before the goal was allowed, 3,000 Wesbild fans held their collective breath as referee Trevor Hanson consulted with linesmen Matt Thurston and Nathan Vanoosten to see if Gill had kicked the puck in (Connorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centring pass deflected in off the Terrace productâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skate). Jonathan Milhouse, taking an unselfish

centering feed from Kellen, fired an emptynetter in the final minute to seal the win. The last time a cup final went to seven games was in 2001 when the Victoria Salsa outlasted the Merritt Centennials. Incidentally, that was the last year the Vipers failed to make the playoffs. Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Mark Ferner praised his squad for bouncing back after a forgettable 5-2 loss in Game 6 two days earlier on the Sunshine Coast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After Game 6, I was mad. Mad that we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come out with the effort that we needed. The madness turned into disappointment because we had an opportunity (to win the series),â&#x20AC;? said Ferner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But then the next day on the bus, now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m jealous of these guys because they get to play in a Game 7. Not too many hockey players can say that they got to play in a Game 7 at home for a league championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m extremely proud of our guys for refocusing. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a target on our back all year long in this league. Our guys persevered and

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sign of great character.â&#x20AC;? Both netminders â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Josh Watson and Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Graeme Gordon â&#x20AC;&#x201C; were stellar in keeping the first period scoreless. Watson (27 saves) stood tall as Viper rookie Dylan Walchuk crashed the net and tried to tuck the puck far side on the Powell River keeper. Gordon (26 saves) flashed a great kick save to stop Brenden Forbes, and added a few more clutch stops on Chad Niddery. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just try to keep the guys in it for as long as I can,â&#x20AC;? said Gordon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It could have been the last game of my career if I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play my best game. Obviously thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to motivate me and I just put it all out there.â&#x20AC;? Gordon (first star) saved his best for last as he absolutely robbed Niddery by diving across his crease to deny the Powell River forward an empty net late in the game. Powell River momentarily silenced the raucous Wesbild crowd early in the second period as Niddery, a thorn in the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side all series, deflected defenceman Reid Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s point shot at 3:26 to open the scoring.

Vernon responded five minutes later as Milhouse (second star) fired a harmless looking shot from the sidewall that deflected off d-man Justin Dasilvaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s skate at 8:06. As the game wore on, the Kings looked more like a team that was playing not to lose, instead of playing to win. The Vipers, meanwhile, stayed on the offensive, holding the Kings to just one shot in the first half of the third period. The Snakes also held the physical edge. Curtis Gedig, stapling Forbes to the boards as he rushed up ice late in the second period, and Kevin Kraus, hammering Niddery in front of the Viper bench early in the third frame, threw two of the more devastating checks. A key member of the Vernon defence last year, Kraus says it is that much more rewarding to captain a team to a title. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I know what Crow (Chris Crowell) went through last year now. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be able to lead these guys to a league championship. It feels great.

days with his hometown Nelson Leafs. He was with the Penticton Vees when they won the BCHL title in 2007-08. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the most devastating loss Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever been part of. I think, two years ago, in Penticton, when we won it and we went all the way, it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like this,â&#x20AC;? said Labreche, in a teary Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dressing room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Had we gone all the way today, I mean some guys played 80-something games in a row. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought there was a pretty good vibe around the room and at the hotel. Everything was on. We played a great game and we didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quit, and I guess thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the way things go unfortunately.â&#x20AC;? Powell River captain Mat Bodie led the Kings from the back end in scoring with 31 points in 23 playoff games. As one of the returnees, he has felt this anguish before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was the exact same feeling,â&#x20AC;? said a red-eyed Bodie seconds after hugging Lewis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year I was playing with my brother (Kyle) and we couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it done. This year, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Game 7, one bounce right off their skate, off our skate â&#x20AC;&#x201C; one bounce and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s things.â&#x20AC;? Bodie, a Manitoba product who has a NCAA scholarship to Union Dutchmen in New York for next year, had a blast in the rollercoaster final. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what hockeyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s all about, just giving everything youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what a playoff series should be, seven games decided in the last 10 minutes of the seventh game, and like I said, one bounce.â&#x20AC;? Added Bodie: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best of luck to Vernon. Back-to-back champions. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happened in quite a few years in the BCHL, and a chance for a back-to-back national championships. I wish them all the best.â&#x20AC;? A distraught Campbell, a 20-year-old Yukon product in his fourth full season with Powell River, was consoled by teammates on the ice and in the dressing room after the loss. Labreche, who plans to get a â&#x20AC;&#x153;hardworking job and try and stay in shapeâ&#x20AC;? back

in Ontario, where his mom lives, summed up the positive side of graduation from Junior A hockey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m gonna be there one day. If it can go wrong as a 20-year-old, I mean, this is probably the best way it could go.â&#x20AC;? Lewis, 43, has now lost the BCHL final series five times. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just gotta keep working hard, and the harder you work you get the breaks, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a little old getting this far and not getting it done,â&#x20AC;? said Lewis, who played for the Nanaimo Clippers and WHL Victoria Cougars back in the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My brother (a policeman) has tagged me with Marv Levy (Buffalo Bills coach who lost four Super Bowls). We intend to be back next year. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have more than eight coming back who I think learned a lot coming through this way.â&#x20AC;? Lewis lightly kicked the Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; dressing room door and headed to an adjacent room where he sat by himself, pondering the loss with his hands on his face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got new comfy shoes because sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a long walk tonight.â&#x20AC;? Said Connor Jones, after embracing his father, Terry, who won the 1983 Memorial Cup with Ray Ferraro, Cam Neely and the Portland Winter Hawks: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It feels the exact same if not better. It was just as great with a new bunch of guys and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so happy for everybody who wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t with the team last year. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great feeling. Powell River, that was the hardest series anybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ever been in, and holy cow, I think we gave it our all in that last game.â&#x20AC;? After a few days rest, the Vipers will leave today for Alberta, where they will face either the Spruce Grove Saints or Fort McMurray Oil Barons in the Doyle Cup Championship. Those two clubs met in Game 7 of the AJHL Enerflex Cup Championship Tuesday night in Spruce Grove. Games 1 and 2 of the Doyle Cup go Friday and Saturday night respectively in Alberta. If the teams split those two games, Game 3 remains in Alberta.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It brought tears to my eyesâ&#x20AC;Ś unbelievable. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted this ever since the season started and that series was unbelievable.â&#x20AC;? For the Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; David Robinson, a Vernon product, winning a title in front of a home crowd was bliss. Especially considering he had no idea he would end up in Vernon at the start of the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get any better,â&#x20AC;? smiled Robinson, who came to Vernon from the WHL Chilliwack Bruins in January. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had a bunch of family in the stands tonight and I wanted to win for them and I wanted to win for the guys in the room. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coming in halfway through the year I was new to the team, but right when I got here I knew this was a close-knit group with so many leaders. We faced a lot of adversity in this series, even against Quesnel and Penticton, and our leadership put us over the top, and our young guys stepped up as well. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good mix in there.â&#x20AC;? The Kings, who faced elimination four other times in the playoffs, showed tremendous character in the final. The respect between the two sides shone through during the handshakes, as players swapped hacks and hits for hugs and congratulations. Said Kingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Kent Lewis: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I told them that sometimes sports is cruel. We probably had, in the third, two of the best chances we just didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bury.â&#x20AC;? Lewis adds it was tough to see the series winner go in off a skate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You want to lose off a stick in Game 7, so thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tough. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sour grapes; Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not bitching about the call. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just tough not to have it go in off a stick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of the group. We returned eight guys from last year and we got here for a lot of reasons and we were a whisker away from going a lot farther, but Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good hockey club and we knew that so weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll go out with our heads held up.â&#x20AC;?

Sports Shamrocks hold on to stop Stylers

Camels erase accountants Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

They gathered to make sure they could still run, shoot and hit after winter hibernation. The results were pretty good as six teams competed in the Armstrong Shamrocks Ice Breaker Senior Lacrosse Tournament at Nor-Val Sports Centre. The most exciting game of the tourney was the Saturday night marquee match between the Shamrocks and the Vancouver/ Prince George Burrard Stylers, won 8-7 by the Shamrocks. After spotting the Stylers an early three-goal lead, the Rocks rallied in the second to score six goals led by captain Chad Pounder and Braydon Sanders with two apiece. The Stylers equalized late in the third at 7-7, but Pounder, who has senior A WLA experience, took a beautiful cross-crease pass and one-timed it into the back of the net to give Armstrong a one-goal lead with about three minutes to play. “There were some nervous moments with about a minute and

Earlier Saturday, the Kamloops Rattlers doubled Armstrong 4-2,

the Spruce Grove Slash grounded the Vernon Royals 17-5, the Kelowna Raiders bounced the Burrard Stylers 14-2, Spruce Grove toppled Kamloops 8-3 and Kelowna bounced Vernon 8-4. The Shamrocks visit the Raiders Saturday night in their Okanagan X-League opener.

The Vernon Liquor Store Camels went to 2-0 with a sloppy 3-1 win over Bosman Accounting (formerly De Dutch) in Okanagan Oldtimers Soccer League action Monday night at Beasley Park in Winfield. The Dutch crew opened the scoring about 20 minutes in on a beauty own goal in the Camels net scored from about 35 yards out. Minutes later, Perter Kamp of the Dutchmen broke his leg. The humpbacks equalized about five minutes later when Brian Williamson headed in a Rick Danyluk cross on the far post. The Camels took the lead on a penalty kick by Rod (Chili) Valdivieso just before half when a Dutch defender was red carded for a handball on the goal line. The Camels scored their last goal on a wild scramble with about 12 minutes left in the second half when Valdivieso corralled the ball and touched it into the corner of the net. The Camels had the bulk of the play and an overwhelming shot advantage. Mike Moorlag was left to only make a couple of saves in net. Strong players for Bosman were left defender Mike Gilman, central midfielder Wes Vanderveen and keeper Arno Compas.

In 45+ action at Marshall Field #2, the Vernon Silver Stars stopped the defending champion Okanagan Spring Brewery 2-0. Down to 10 men after Kevin Cowley was red carded by referee Shannon Smart at 20 minutes, the Stars managed two breakaway goals in the second half, into the wind. The first came from John Garner after a Mark Hopkins’ through ball to the unmarked player with acres of room. The second goal came from Kenny Rath after Georg Weiher hit the crossbar and the ball rebounded to Rath on the six-yard line. In other 45+ play, the Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels shut down Winfield 2-0 at Beasley Park. Al Murphy, who missed training camp due to golf commitments, converted a feed from Brad Hansen to open the Camels’ scoring midway through the second half. Vernon Big O Tire made a successful debut at the 45+ level with a 1-0 win over Salmon Arm at Marshall #4. Leo Nadeau used Rob Ross as a decoy and buried a low shot to the corner past a diving Al Bensmiller in the first half. Central midfielders Rueben Cervantes and Mark Wasylyk enjoyed monster games for Big O, who had Yogi Kongsdorf in net.

United snuff Blaze, again Morning Star Staff

The Vernon United stopped the Kamloops Blaze for the third time in a week, 2-1, in Thompson-Okanagan Under 18 Boys Rep Soccer League play Sunday at Marshall Field. Vernon controlled the game right from the start when Connor Lee fed a pass down the line to Derek Huisken, who put a long looping left-footed shot into the back of the net over the Kamloops keeper. Vernon’s hard work paid off with a second goal late in the first half when midfielder Go Hariuchi led Ryo Tanaka with a long ball to the corner. Tanaka controlled the ball and made some excellent moves, and sent a near-post cross to streaking defender Nick Pantaleo, who slid the ball past the charging keeper. United kept the game well under control until the dying minutes when Kamloops took advantage of a communication error to move within one goal. “I was pleased with how we limited Kamloops’ scoring chances,” said coach John Farina. “Everyone on the team is contributing.” Farina made mention of a strong showing by midfielder Nathan Whitling for his physical play, and the energy provided by Huisken. United takes their undefeated record to Salmon Arm this Sunday. In U13 Boys Rep play, Vernon shut down Revelstoke 6-0 on Sunday. Zach Kronbauer (2), Kody Glinsbockel, Sam Bozak, Isaiah Wenger and Sean Bradbury handled the Vernon offence. Vernon United settled for a scoreless draw with Kelowna in U14 Rep action Sunday at Beasley Park in Lake Country. The boys brought their two-touch, warm-up drills straight into the first half and controlled the play for close to 70 per cent of the half. The Kelowna defence was up to the challenge, keeping the Vernon squad to the outside and only allowing them opportunities for difficult shots on goal. Kelowna had a couple of offensive surges but the speed of the Vernon defence and great communication with keeper Victor Gouchee kept the game scoreless. The game opened up and it became back and forth offensive attacks with both teams having opportunities, but the

In the last two minutes, Noa Acri crossed to Menno Burnet, who headed the ball just over the reach of the Kelowna keeper, and just over the cross bar. Man-of-the-Match went to Burnet with honorable mention to Ben Aspenleider, Mike Bennett and Acri. The Vernon United U12s Team 1 started off their season by defeating Kelowna #1 2-1 Sunday morning. The game started off slowly, but Daniel Aspenlieder had an excellent game as keeper, making some key saves. Defender Bryn Bedard got the opening goal from 30 yards out, a lofting kick that went over the Kelowna keeper’s head. Nick Berg then got the second goal less than a minute

later with a similar type of goal. After half time, Kelowna got back one of the goals, but United played solid to hold their lead. Later against Kelowna #3, United lost 3-1. They were getting tired legs with only two subs, but did not give up. Just before the half, Nick Klymchyk got a goal off a rebound from the Kelowna keeper to make it 1-1. Kelowna scored two late goals in the final half. Vernon #2 won their first game 3-2 against the Kamloops Orange team, with goals scored by Cole Benjaminsen, Jeremy Purvis and Liam McGrath. They then bowed 3-1 to the Kamloops Blue with David Weir connecting for Vernon.

Storm set to host Keystone When Barry Dewar’s Osoyoos Storm won the Keystone Cup in 2005, Jim Leibel was the head coach. Fast-forward five years and the Storm, now representing Kamloops, are back in the tournament that will crown a champion of junior B hockey in Western Canada, and another Leibel – Tyler, Jim’s son – is at the helm. The Keystone Cup begins Thursday at the McArthur Island Sports Centre and runs through Sunday. Dewar brought in the younger Leibel as co-coach in February to man the bench alongside Greg Hawgood. Leibel said the team is anxious to get going after spending nearly two months away from the ice following a first-round Kootenay International Junior Hockey League playoff exit at the hands of the Chase Chiefs. “I think we’re ready to go,” he said. “We did three weeks of dry-land training and then got back on the ice.” Dewar is cautiously optimistic and ready to admit he has no idea what to expect from most squads in the field, which includes the host Storm, the Revelstoke Grizzlies, the Beaumont (Alta.) Chiefs, the Tri-Town (Sask.)

Thunder, the Selkirk (Man.) Fishermen and the Northern (Ont.) Hawks. “There’s not much you can do,” he said, of tournament preparation. “We do have a little bit of video of Revelstoke, but that’s it.” Other than the Grizz, Dewar said only one name really rings a bell. “Wade Waters, the goalie for Beaumont, he was the goalie in Creston a few years ago,” he said. “Other than that, there’s a few names that I recognize, but I don’t know where from.” Dewar said the differing junior B rules across the country could also affect what happens this weekend. “There are a couple of teams that have lots of guys that are (born in) ’88 and ’89,” he said. “In all the provinces but B.C. you can have 21-year-olds, and there’s no limit on 20-year-olds. “We have a 15-year-old that will be playing for us.” Dewar said he’s glad the Storm will be taking on Revelstoke to start the tournament. “We’ll get a good feel the first day,” he said. “We’ll be able to see the other teams play that we have no knowledge of probably once or twice before we meet them.”

Special to The Morning Star

Nicaragua is a Third World country in Central America, and the second poorest country in the Americas, with 80 per cent of its population living on less than two dollars a day. This spring break I traveled to Nicaragua with my friend Cayla Brown and my dad, Dr. Chris Cunningham. Cayla and I are currently Grade 11 students at Clarence Fulton secondary, and we went to do medical clinics with my dad’s partner Dr. Bill Charlton and his wife, Kristy, in a remote part of the country called Potosi. We left Vancouver March 7 and traveled 48 hours before arriving in the country’s capital, Managua. Bill and Kristy were there to greet us and we then began our journey. We piled into a van and drove three hours to Chinandega. There we rented a truck that would carry us and our supplies to Potosi. It took a long day of traveling in the heat, but we finally arrived at our destination. Potosi is a place of severe poverty. The homes are made from any scraps that can be found and the people rely on the land for food, which is usually scarce. It is a whole other world down there; children struggle to get an education and young girls usually have two children by the age of 16. The area that we visited had not seen medical attention since a Vernon crew was there two years ago. In our first day we saw

Dr. Chris Cunningham (left) examines a patient while Dr. Bill Charlton and his translator, Ana, greet their next patient at a clinic the Vernon doctors set up in Nicaragua. 75 people; the second we saw more than 150. Dr. Charlton and my dad, along with two translators, assessed each patient that came through. From there, they sent the patient with a prescription form to Cayla, Kristy, and I. Cayla and I were in charge of making sure that every child was given deworming medicine. Kristy was in charge of our make-shift pharmacy and spent endless hours counting pills. It was the best set-up we could do in the area that we were given, which was luckily under the shade of a huge tree! Before we left on our trip, Cayla and I decided that we would like to do a special project while we were there. We thought that it would be easier to raise money here and buy everything we needed down in Nicaragua. That way we didn’t have to pack much and we also helped the local economy. With the help of a few of our friends, and the Fulton leadership class, we did a

bottle drive near the school. Many people donated their bottles and cash to our cause and with that we raised $200. We also had a generous donation from Cheryl Tomiak at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and Cayla and I each put some of our own money towards the project. Once down in Nicaragua we bought school supplies for three schools near Potosi; this included pens, pencils, sharpeners, chalk, notebooks, erasers, coloured paper, scissors, and glue. We boxed this all up and presented it to the schools while they were in session. The kids had the widest smiles on their faces and we will never forget how grateful they were. We still had money left over so we decided to buy 40 pairs of flip flops for a remote town called La Salbia; it is so poor and removed from society that they do not have access to fresh water, so they drink diluted salt water. We did a medical clinic and at the end

Life

Reducing water use Editor’s note: This week the Communities in Bloom committee fills in for Fred Lyall. arch 26 marked the launch of Phase 2 of the Okanagan Water Supply and Demand Study. One of the key findings of this study was that the amount of water used by Okanagan residents is higher than the B.C. and Canadian averages. Much of this water goes to the irrigation of our outdoor landscapes. While this information may lead us to think that we should replace our lawns with rocks or asphalt, there is another water-wise landscapFred Lyall ing option that also happens to be beautiful, xeriscaping. Xeriscaping is a method of landscaping that uses a few basic principles to create beautiful landscapes that use less water and fewer pesticides, are attractive to birds and butterflies, and are low-maintenance compared to a conventional landscape. A surprising number of plants have low water needs, which makes it easy to create a sustainable, colourful landscape throughout the growing season. Fall-planted bulbs are extremely well-suited to xeriscaping. They have very low water requirements, need little maintenance, and can provide continuous interest in the garden from early spring into mid summer, depending on the varieties chosen. Snowdrops (Galanthus) are very early bloomers and can, in some years, push their way through the snow to provide us with our first sign that spring is on its way. A dwarf iris known as iris reticulata also blooms in early spring. It is very easy to grow, is wonderfully fragrant, and comes in several shades of blue and purple. A similar dwarf iris, iris danfordiae, blooms a vibrant canary yellow. There are many other smaller blooming bulbs that are perfect for rock gardens, but are also suitable for edging or within a perennial bed. While we are probably most familiar with crocuses and grape hyacinths (muscari), there are several others, including chionodoxa, puschkinia, and scilla, which are well suited to the Okanagan. Consider planting your bulbs in a mixed bunch‚ the bright

M

IN THE GARDEN

blue scilla planted with a miniature daffodil (such as Tete a Tete) is a particularly pleasing combination. If you have issues with deer grazing in your garden, daffodils (narcissus) are a great option since the deer will leave them alone — all parts of the plant contain bitter chemicals that can be toxic if eaten in large quantities. The most commonly known daffodil is the tall, bright yellow King Alfred‚ though these easy-to-grow bulbs come in many colours, from golds and yellows, to pure white with pink or orange cups, or yellow with orange or red cups. Also deer resistant, ornamental onions (Allium) provide colour in the garden after many of the more commonly used bulbs have finished blooming. The flower heads of ornamental onions range in size from one inch to one foot and are attractive to butterflies. If cut early, they will last up to three weeks in water. If left on the plants, the dried seed heads look attractive in the garden and can also be used in cut flower arrangements. With such a great variety in colours, sizes and bloom times, combined with their low water and maintenance needs, fall-planted bulbs are a worthy addition to any xeriscaped yard. Vernon’s Communities in Bloom (CiB) committee would like to know about your environmental, xeriscaping and tidiness efforts. Have you tidied your yard, business or place of worship? Has your family participated in a community clean-up project? Vernon CiB will be participating in the April 22 Earth Day celebrations at the new Spirit Square outside City Hall. The event will feature information about city and regional district environmental initiatives, as well as composting demonstrations, giveaways, entertainment and a youth rally. Vernon CiB will be giving away packets of sunflower seeds. April 22 will also mark the launch date of the Vernon Communities in Bloom website at www. vernon.ca/cib. The website contains information about Vernon’s CiB initiatives, judging criteria and ways to get involved. Also visit our Facebook page. Search Vernon Communities in Bloom, become a fan and be sure to post a picture of your growing sunflower, or tell us about your accomplishments by writing on our wall.

Returning with a newfound appreciation Continued from page B8 of the day, with the help of some locals, handed out the shoes to every child. After all that, we still had money left over so we traveled down to Granada where we met two girls from the United States, Zoey and Kay. They are college soccer players who have been living in Granada setting up a soccer program called Soccer without Borders. They run practices and games for street kids who want to play organized soccer. We had the opportunity to participate and help coach one of the practices; it was a lot of fun, but we were running around at three in the afternoon with the 37 degree sun beat-

ing down on us! Overall, our trip was very successful and we were able to help many people. This trip changed our lives and with the help of the Vernon community, we were able to change the lives of many people in Nicaragua. Cayla and I are very thankful to the people who donated to our project and would like them to know that every dollar was able to put a smile on a child’s face. Cayla and I came back from this trip with a newfound appreciation for the lifestyles we have. Even though the country is poor and its people have nothing, they have wider smiles than most people more fortunate than them.

Rhubarb returns for the season

I

t’s rhubarb season. I’ve loved this sweet and sour delight since I was a small child when my mom would sit us around the table, each clutching a long stalk of rhubarb to be dipped into a central bowl of sugar. That first crunch really got the juices flowing. By the time we were done, there were trails of sugary juice and saliva reaching from each child to the sugar bowl and back. What about double-dipping, you ask? Well, back then families shared everything: Cathi Litzenberger viruses, bacteria, germs, measles, chicken pox, so double-dipping was no big deal. In fact, when all was said and done, there were always a couple of kids who would would linger to scrape off the drips of sugar left from the journey to the sugar bowl. By the time we left to wash up, there would be a perfect wagon wheel imprinted on the table in sticky pink sugars where each child reached for the sugar bowl. It seems kind of

KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM

gross now, but back then it was the original sweet and sour treat. Today’s rhubarb recipes are sure to delight. Rhubarb Dessert with Gelatin 1 cup all-purposr flour 3 tbsp. sugar 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder 1/4 tsp. salt 6 tbsp. butter or margarine 1 egg, beaten 2 tbsp. milk 1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 pkg. (3 oz.) strawberry gelatin 1/4 cup sugar 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour 4 cups sliced rhubarb about 1-1/4 lbs.) 2/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup all purpose flour Combine first 4 ingredients. Cut in 3 tbsp. butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Combine egg, milk and vanilla. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. With floured hands, pat dough into the bottom and about

1-inch up the sides of a 9-inch square pan. Combine gelatin, 1/4 cup sugar, and 3 tbsp. flour. Add rhubarb slices and mix well. Pour into the crust. Combine 2/3 cup sugar with 1/3 cup flour. Cut in remaining 3 tbsp. butter until mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle crumbs over rhubarb mixture. Bake at 350 F for about 55 to 65 minutes, or until rhubarb is tender and top is nicely browned. Serve with whipped topping or serve warm with ice cream. Rhubarb Pie 2 eggs, well-beaten 1-1/2 cups sugar 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. nutmeg 4 cups chopped rhubarb 9-inch pie shell, unbaked In a large mixing bowl, mix eggs, sugar, flour, salt and nutmeg. Beat until light and fluffy. Stir in rhubarb. Pour into unbaked pie shell. Bake at 450 F for 10 minutes; reduce heat and bake 40 to 50 minutes longer. Serve warm with ice cream.

Caring for the caregiver: avoiding burnout BY MECHAL CORBETT Special to The Morning Star

As our population continues to age, more and more individuals are thrust into caregiving roles. The majority of these caregivers are also employed outside the home and have children of their own, further increasing their stress levels. Balancing commitments to work and aging loved ones can be an extremely trying ordeal and in many situations leads to what is known as caregiver burnout, a condition involving fatigue, stress, anxiety and depression. While these caregivers are doing their best to take care of their aging loved ones, many tend to forget to care for themselves. “Most caregivers who struggle with the stresses of their duties tend to feel guilty even for simply complaining,” says Cathy Bilton, owner and care designer for the Nurse Next Door Vernon franchise. “But as a caregiver you owe it to yourself to be happy and healthy. A caregiver suffering from burnout may actually be doing a disservice to both themselves and the loved one they are taking care of.” To help caregivers better handle the stresses of their roles and to avoid suffering a burnout, Bilton outlines a few suggestions: Enjoy yourself While this may sound like an obvious

suggestion, Bilton said this is the most often over-looked suggestion. She encourages caregivers to make time for the activities they enjoy. Whatever it may be — listening to music, watching a movie, reading a book — Bilton points out that it is imperative for caregivers to treat themselves. “If you’re caring for your mom or dad, it’s really easy to feel like your time would be better spent caring for them, but it is important to realize that caring for yourself is just as important,” she says. Stay healthy

The happiest people are usually the healthiest and those who eat well and exercise tend to handle stress the best. With that in mind, Bilton suggests that caregivers make it a point to develop a healthy diet and a regular exercise schedule to ensure they maintain a good quality of life. “Eating right and exercising regularly go a long ways in helping to balance the stresses a caregiver faces.” Socialize One of the most common symptoms of caregiver burnout is a withdrawal from friends

and family. Make time for outings with friends or family. If this isn’t possible, invite them over to spend time at your house.” Bilton says sharing the caregiving load with close friends or other family members can not only ease the burden but can make the experience more enjoyable. Get help According to Bilton, it is common for caregivers to feel that they should be the only ones shouldering the caregiving responsibilities, yet it is crucial for them to utilize the resources available to them.

“Caregivers should try to include fellow family members to share in the duties as much as possible. When someone offers help, take it and be specific in how they can help. ‘Here is the grocery list or can you take Mom to her appointment on Friday’ are examples. This can offer the primary caregiver a much needed rest. Many caregivers also take advantage of companies that provide more assistance, respite care or transportation.” Mechal Corbett is director, Vernon, Nurse Next Door Home Referral Services.

Horoscope BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) A project upon which you may have placed little significance may gain much appeal today. Consequently, you’ll now be more willing to spend some quality time and effort on it.

PUZZLE NO. 203

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Someone who is sincerely interested in your financial well-being may take some constructive steps to help you develop skills that could put you at the higher end of the earning scale. Be responsive.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) If Cupid has been far too lax about shooting arrows at someone on your behalf, there is a good chance he might do so now. Don’t be surprised if your heart starts to twitter today.

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 091112

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Be alert and on your toes today, because there are indications that improvements might occur that could benefit you careerwise. You wouldn’t want to miss out on anything that may benefit you. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Most partnership arrangements into which you enter at this point in time would have excellent chances of being successful, so don’t hesitate to team up with someone if asked to join up. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Lady Luck is willing to apply her magic on anything that has to do with a collective endeavor, so it behooves you to become a team player. It doesn’t matter if it’s with a softball team or a business group. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) Several exciting new friends you’ll be meeting will want to play some major roles in your life if you’re open to making room for them. It behooves you to do so. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) Don’t take lightly any new bright idea you get at this point in time, especially if it should have anything to do with making your work more productive. It’ll pay off handsomely for you. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) You could be on the verge of an exciting change in your life that would increase your popularity in the process. It won’t mean changing your friendships, only increasing them.

CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Don’t be surprised if Lady Luck starts doing what she can to improve your financial lot in life. Some new ingenious, positive thinking on your part may make this a strong probability. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) An old unproductive perspective you’ve hung onto for far too long might finally be on its last legs. Its demise will be replaced with some innovative new thinking that will increase your opportunities for success. PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) By analyzing your economic picture today, you should be able to discover some new ways to generate more income and enhance your overall financial position. Don’t be afraid to try something fresh. YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY In the year ahead some old, unproductive habits will quietly be fazed out of your life and be replaced with captivating new interests. As a result you might start seeing less of some of your old friends as you move into a new social world.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes 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.

Bridge by Phillip Alder James Callaghan, who was England’s prime minister from 1976 to 1979, said, “A leader must have the courage to act against an expert’s advice.” That might be true in politics, but not in bridge. A leader should follow the advice of the experts. It is the opening leader’s partner who occasionally needs courage -- as in this deal. How should East plan the defense against three notrump after West leads the spade queen? Note North’s response. With no singleton, no void and no major-suit length, he was right just to go with notrump. Everyone will admire his minor suit when he puts it down in the dummy. If North had six diamonds and

one black-suit card fewer, he should still raise to three no-trump. A six-card suit is one more potential trick than a five-card suit, which is the name of the game. When West leads the spade queen, he guarantees a suit headed by the Q-J-9 or Q-J-10 (or A-Q-J). East, hoping it is not the first (or that South has the doubleton A-10), must courageously play his king to unblock the suit. He must get out of his partner’s way. Declarer will duck this trick, hoping the king is a singleton. But East will return his second spade. How should South continue? He should duck this trick and win the third spade, to confirm that West started with five spades. Then

declarer should cash the diamond ace. He should not take the diamond finesse, in case West has the singleton king. If the diamond finesse is winning, South does not need it. He can get home with an overtrick, taking one spade, two hearts, four diamonds and three clubs.

News Telus committed to communications growth in Vernon area Morning Star Staff

Advanced wireline and wireless broadband services are being enhanced in Vernon thanks to Telus’ $8.5 million investment in this community for 2010. “This year, as part of our $650 million investment across British Columbia, we are focusing $8.5 million on bringing the benefits of one of the world’s most advanced wireless networks, high speed internet and high definition Telus TV to our customers right here in Vernon,” said Michael Lloyd, Telus field support manager for Vernon Specifically, health care, environment and First Nations initiatives are benefitting from Telus’ investment in B.C. Improved patient outcomes and more efficient care result when communications are made easier says Darren Enwistle, Telus president and chief executive officer. Further, electronic document transfer decreases dependence on natural resources. “We are also helping our clients reduce their impact on the environment by providing the latest telecommuting, conferencing and data management solutions enabling the movement of ideas and information instead of people, vehicles and paper,” said Entwistle. “Advanced broadband services are also enabling new education and commerce opportunities for dozens of Aboriginal communities in British Columbia,” he said. This year Telus will also continue to expand its wireless broadband network in Vernon, building on the November 2009 launch of the fastest and biggest wireless network in British Columbia and Canada* “Since 2000, Telus, our 33 team members and many retirees in Vernon have contributed $650,000 to charitable and community organizations in Vernon,” said Lloyd. Telus is donating

$100 for every new Telus TV client in Vernon who signs up before March 2, 2011 to the Building a Tower

News UBCO student hub opens

UNITED WAY ONLINE AUCTION

Black Press

PHOTO SUBMITTED

These are just some of the more than 200 items up for grabs at the third annual United Way Spring Online Auction. The auction runs until April 30 at 4 p.m. Go to www.unitedwaynocs.com to bid on items including a 2010 Ford Mustang convertible, electric bike, jewelry, spa and fitness packages and gift certificates worth hundreds of dollars.

The new hub of student services and campus life on UBC’s Okanagan campus is officially open. University Centre, a $33-million, 7,300-square-metre building, was completed in time for the start of classes last fall and is home to a host of student- and university-delivered services for students. The recent opening ceremony included the formal dedication of the first floor as the J. Peter Meekison Student Centre. The J. Peter Meekison Student Centre is a place for students to meet, eat, study and access a wide range of services and amenities including UBC Students’ Union Okanagan offices, the UBCSUO used bookstore, a 100-seat cinema, The Well pub, a branch of Valley First Credit Union, many clubs and The Phoenix student newspaper. The UBC Students’ Union Okanagan’s contribution to the new facility included $3 million presented to the university in February. “From the establishment of British Columbia’s first university at Fairview in 1908 to the Great Trek to Point Grey in 1922 and from the call for an Okanagan campus early in this new millennium to the support of these facilities by the UBC Students’ Union Okanagan, students have powerfully supported and shaped the university we know today as UBC,” said UBC

president Stephen Toope. In recognizing the university’s other major funding partners, Brad Bennett, chair of UBC’s board of governors, also thanked Jim Meekison for honouring his brother Peter in naming the student centre and Robert and Barbara Atkinson and Stephen and Kathy Bellringer, who joined with Jim Meekison in contributing $2 million to the facility. Peter Meekison was the public administrator appointed by the B.C. government to oversee the transition from the former Okanagan University College into two new institutions: Okanagan College and UBC Okanagan in 2005. Doug Owram, deputy vice-chancellor and principal of the Okanagan campus, noted when the new UBC campus opened five years ago, there were only about 3,000 students. “Today, we have more than 6,200 students and over the next couple of years we will grow to 7,500 students,” he said. “This building, with the services it accommodates, the spaces it provides for our students, is a crucial component of our overall campus master plan and is a vital part of our campus life.” University Centre was developed by UBC Properties Trust, with construction management by Sawchuk Developments Co. Ltd. and design by Stantec Architecture Inc.

Ernie McConomy

Nancy Annie Goudge (nee Ball)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ernest (Ernie) Warren McConomy at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital, on April 8, 2010.

was born on May 9th, 1914 in Newcastle, England and was called Home to be with her Lord and her husband Charles on April 1st, 2010 at the age of 95 years. She was a resident of Noric House in Vernon, B.C. at the time of her death.

Ernie will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his wife Joan (Jo) and his children Carol Hill, Lynne Brockway(Gordon), Elaine Swan, Bruce McConomy (Janet) and Judy Vogel(Ken); grandchildren Aaron, Merilee (Travis), Jaimie, Brendon, Jordan, Jeffrey, Derek, and Steven; and great grandchildren, Brock and Quinn. He will also be fondly remembered by Warren & Dolores Bahen, Sheldon Swan & family, and his many nieces, nephews and friends. Ernie was born on February 4th, 1924, in Montreal, Quebec. In 1950, he married Joan Brown and they were happily married for nearly sixty years. Ernie and Joan spent many rewarding years raising their family in Montreal, Pointe Claire, and Lac Echo before moving to Ottawa in 1979. They retired to Vernon in 1990, where they enjoyed many active retirement years together. Ernie was a talented athlete who played hockey, tennis, softball, and especially golf. He spent many great days on the Spallumcheen golf course with his golf partner, Joan, and friends, Glenn and Ron. Ernie considered his greatest accomplishment to be his family. He took great pride in the greatest and smallest accomplishments of his children, grand-children, and great-grandchildren. Some of his fondest times were spent gol¿ng and playing cards(particularly cribbage), with his children and grandchildren. Ernie had wonderful times at family reunions and was very proud of the McConomy trophy awarded at family golf and bocce ball tournaments. In recent years, despite being legally blind and in failing health, Ernie still remained positive and never lost his sense of humour, continuing to enjoy his family, friends, and his special canine friend, Honey. A Memorial Mass led by Father Dale Normandeau was held on Monday, April 12, 2010, at 10:00 A.M. at St James Catholic Church in Vernon. Donations in Ernie’s memory may be contributed to the C.N.I.B. 1929 Bayview Ave, Toronto, Ontario, M4G 3E8. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.

Obituaries

Nancy will be lovingly remembered by her son, Gerry (Jill) of Vernon, B.C.; her daughter, Barbara (Bill) Paquette of Montreal, Quebec; seven grandchildren, Diane, Sandra, Wendy, Bradley, Michael, Jenelle and Greg; thirteen great-grandchildren; one great-great-granddaughter; and numerous extended family members. She was preceded in death by her husband, Cyril (Charles) Goudge.

Roberts, Fanny Noel December 25, 1918 - March 31, 2010 We regret to announce the passing of our dear aunt Fanny (Copey) at Pleasant Valley Manor in Armstrong. Fanny lived the majority of her 91 years in Vernon. During the war years she was a sales clerk at the Hudson’s Bay Company. After the war she left the Bay to take a secretarial course at the McEwen Wilkie Secretarial College in Vernon, graduating with honours in 1953. Upon graduation Fanny worked as a secretary at W.L. Seaton Jr. Secondary School, retiring in 1980. Fanny was an avid gardener and roses were her passion, especially her yellow rose tree in her front yard. During her retirement Fanny was busy looking after her great nieces and nephews, baking (she was the butter tart queen), and enjoying time at the cabin on Kalamalka Lake. Fanny will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her five nieces, Barb Cockerill (Kirk) of Armstrong, Gail Gair (Andrew) of Toronto, Donna Roberts of Seattle Wash, Susan Griffin (Jonathon) of Duncan, Linda Poggemoeller (Larry) of Vernon, as well as many great nieces and nephews and extended family members in England. She was predeceased by her three sisters, Rose, Nellie and Ruth; brothers John and Art, and a niece Janice Hollins. Funeral Services were held on Saturday, April 3rd, 2010 in the Chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with Brian Jackson officiating. Friends wishing to do so may make a donation in memory of Fanny to Hospice House, 3506 - 27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C., V1T 1S4, or to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of B.C.& Yukon, 200 - 1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, B.C, V3H 3V2

With great sadness we announce the passing of Dorothy White in VJH at the age of 88. Dorothy was born in Edmonton and spent most of her life in Vernon.
