Greater Vernon taps into tough water rules

TANDEM PADDLE

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Unprecedented measures are being taken to preserve Greater Vernon’s dwindling water supply. As of Thursday, all residents, businesses and farmers have been placed on stage three water restrictions — the earliest such action has ever been taken. “We’re totally in areas we’ve never been in before,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager. For residential users, manual sprinklers can Al Cotsworth only be used once a week between 6 and 10 a.m. or 7 p.m. and midnight. Automatic underground sprinklers are allowed between midnight and 6 a.m. Addresses ending in 0 can water on Saturday, 1 on Sunday, 2 on Monday, 3 or 4 on Tuesday, 5 on Wednesday, 6 or 7 on Thursday and 8 or 9 Friday. Washing driveways and sidewalks for aesthetic purposes is prohibited, and there’s no washing of vehicles except for safety (windows, lights and licenses only) using a bucket with a cloth. Refilling of pools and garden ponds is not allowed. Hand-held sprinkling is allowed at any time. The North Okanagan Regional District will hire staff to respond to complaints of infractions. Stage two restrictions had been antici-

pated this week, but the latest snowpack and reservoir readings forced stage three. Greater Vernon’s reservoirs currently have about 2,500-acre-feet of storage, while it’s usually 4,500-acre-feet at this time of the year. “This is the lowest we’ve ever been,” said Arnold Badke, NORD’s general manager of engineering, adding that low snowpack has forced reservoir levels down in recent years. Drought response planning was initiated in early March, and the measures have included looking at restrictions as well as other water sources that can be utilized if required. Meetings have also been held with agricultural users as about 70 per cent of Greater Vernon’s water goes to that sector. Under stage three restrictions, agricultural users will be asked to voluntary reduce up to 20 per cent of their water allocation for crop irrigation. Ted Osborn, the utility’s agriculture director, believes farmers will try to cut back on consumption, but points out that water is key to their financial livelihood. “A reduction will depend on the crop, what kind of irrigation system is used and the user’s knowledge of what their crops require for water,” he said. Officials will continue to monitor conditions throughout the spring and summer, and there is a possibility that all residential irrigating could be banned. “If we don’t see a significant reduction in use, stage four could be on the table,” said Cotsworth.

Suspect arrested after collision with police cruiser Morning Star Staff

He got away from police on three wheels, but couldn’t shake the four-legged police dog. One man was taken into custody after being captured following a pursuit involving a stolen vehicle Wednesday afternoon. At around 1:30 p.m., Vernon RCMP officers were doing surveillance in the area of 32nd Street and 23rd Avenue. They were watching a stolen RV trailer when a nonassociated – and stolen – truck pulled up. “A suspect male left the truck for a very short time, went to a house, then returned

and jumped into it and started to drive away,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. Officers in an unmarked police car with its emergency lights on attempted to block the truck from leaving the area. The suspect, according to police, intentionally rammed the police car, totalling it on the spot. “The suspect then narrowly missed a second police vehicle driven by one of our dog handlers that was coming to assist,” said Molendyk. The collision with the police cruiser was enough to knock the front right wheel com-

pletely off the truck, and the truck and suspect sped away on three wheels. Scrape marks and damage done to the road allowed police to determine the direction of travel, and the suspect truck was located in South Vernon, near the area of 15th Avenue and Willow Drive. When the police service dog team pulled up behind the truck, the suspect vehicle’s back-up lights came on. “Our officer felt his vehicle was going to be rammed as well,” said Molendyk. The driver jumped from the truck and took off running through Vernon Creek. The

dog handler ordered him to stop, and told the suspect he had a police dog. The man continued to run, and the dog was able to capture him a short distance away. The 38-year-old suspect was treated for injuries sustained during this ordeal. He also has five outstanding warrants for his arrest, and is expected to face charges, including two counts of assault with a weapon, flight from police, resisting arrest and possession of stolen property over $5,000. Molendyk said none of the officers were injured during the incident.

Petition organizer seeks names ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

The Okanagan organizer of a B.C.-wide petition aimed at forcing a vote on the harmonized sales tax is urging opponents who have not already done so to sign, regardless of what they hear about the number of signatures already collected. Daniel Thorburn, who is overseeing the petition drive in Vernon-Monashee, said he is concerned some people may not bother to sign if they feel canvassers have already been successful at gathering signatures. Under B.C.’s initiative law, a registered group has to collect the signatures of 10 per cent of all eligible voters in 85 B.C. ridings to have an initiative considered by the government. “We are doing very well but to gain success, we need (people) to get out and sign,” said Thorburn. “We don’t want to present the minimum number of signatures.” Earlier this week, leaders of the Fight The HST group said response in the first two weeks of the 90-day campaign has been strong, with several of the 49 ridings that have reported numbers already producing the mandatory 10 per cent of signatures. After a slow start, Vernon-Monashee is said to be catching up quickly but is still only about half way there. Despite that, Thorburn said response to the petition has been good. He is confident canvassers will collect much more than the required 10 per cent of signatures in the constituency. “I think we are doing really well,” he said.

Worker thwarts B&E

One of the major concerns for the group is that not all signatures will be accepted by Elections B.C., which has to approve each one for it to be valid. All the signatures will be submitted to Elections B.C. at the end of the 90-day campaign in early July, so there will not be time to go back and collect any rejected ones again. Thorburn said that is why he wants well in excess of the 10 per cent figure in each of the four ridings he is overseeing. Recent public opinion polls put opposition to combining the current seven per cent provincial sales tax and the five per cent federal goods and services tax in one 12 per cent harmonized sales tax at 85 per cent. Thorburn was quick to deflect the issue away from party politics, saying opposition to the HST is not about political party allegiance. While he admitted some people are using the HST as an issue to attack the Liberal government of Premier Gordon Campbell, his group is not political. Opposition to the HST is, however, being supported by the NDP and several other smaller political parties in B.C. The petition’s organizers have a local website — danthornburn.com — detailing where and when the petition will be available to sign locally.

For the record The Morning Star wishes to clarify an article in the April 21 edition. The anti-HST petition is not available at the Desert Cove community. We apologize for any inconvenience this error has caused.

The employee investigated the noise, which turned out to be the front door being smashed Thursday morning, and, in doing so, scared off the suspect. Police were alerted and a man well-known to police was arrested a short distance away. The suspect, 28, who was only released from jail on a previous matter less than a week before, was taken into custody. Robert Lapp was expected to appear in Vernon Provincial Court Thursday to face charges related to the incident. His parole has been revoked.

Pesticides to continue on school fields APRIL SPECIALS im Suit Sa Pesticide use on school grounds has dropped significantly since 1996, but it’s unlikely to be discontinued completely. “The review process will continue,” said chairman Bill Turanski at Tuesday’s Vernon School District board meeting. “The use of pesticides is a very emotional and sensitive issue and I would like to commend committee members to ensure everyone has access to accurate information before it drafts a recommendation to the board.” Maintenance supervisor John Tompson brought trustees up-to-date on site maintenance, explaining that a variety of methods are used in order to keep pesticide use to a minimum. “Turf/grass areas are one of the main areas where we continue to use horticultural practices

Crews are running behind on the Duteau Creek water treatment plant, but spending is on target. North Okanagan Regional District directors were told Wednesday that the $29 million project is three months behind schedule. “There have been delays with receiving equipment,” said Bill Di Pasquale, project manager. Construction started in early 2009, and it’s expected the plant will be commissioned in August. It would then come on line some time in September. But while scheduling difficulties have surfaced, Di Pasquale is pleased with the financial component of the project. “I’m confident it will be completed well within budget,” he said. Presently, 90 per cent of the reservoir is completed while 80 per cent of the clarification unit is done. “The work is coming along,” said Di Pasquale of the site on Whitevale Road in rural Lumby. Once the facility is operational, water from Duteau Creek will enter the plant and go through clarification. It’s hoped that will reduce frequent complaints in Greater Vernon about the colour and turbidity leading to boil water alerts.

to keep weeds down. School parking lots that are covered in gravel and not paved are more prone to weed infestations, and plans are in the works to upgrade those lots. School playing fields are sprayed in August, when students are not in class, but Tompson said there is sometimes spraying done in parking lots and sidewalk areas throughout the school year. Tompson said many of the schools’ playing fields were not well-done in the first place, with topsoil sitting on top of clay. “We want to keep the turf as healthy as possible while dealing with water restrictions. The big issue is that we should try to top-dress all our fields with sand, which seems to be a good medium and I think that would really help, but certainly there is a cost involved.”

Volunteer strives to make community safer ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Tired of seeing downtown Vernon being ruined by vandals and thieves in the mid-1990s, Lyle Duffield and a group of other local businessmen decided something had to be done. Following their meeting, and a subsequent follow-up get together with the RCMP, a number of crime prevention programs, such as Citizens On Patrol and Speed Watch, were formed. Duffield remains to this day, celebrating 17 years as a volunteer. “When I moved to Vernon, I started a business (Kelly’s Electronic World) and was broken into quite a few times. Saturday mornings, downtown Vernon was literally smashed windows, signs pulled down,” said Duffield, who, today, owns Hi Fi Attic. “A group of businessmen got together and said, ‘Look we need something to happen.’ We sat down with RCMP, said we needed some help, and they’re going, ‘We need help too.’ That was the beginning of Citizens On Patrol, Speed Watch, a whole bunch of initiatives came out of that group and I’ve just stuck with it all these years. I just believe in it.” Duffield and other volunteers are

being saluted by the local RCMP detachment in recognition of National Volunteer Week, which is on until Sunday. “The RCMP is proud to work with thousands of volunteers that dedicate countless hours to crime prevention programs across Canada,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “We salute the contributions provided by these committed volunteers, and the commitment they provide is helping us to achieve our goal of safe homes and safe communities.” The Vernon detachments works with more than 100 volunteers in various crime prevention programs. Duffield himself commits to one or two nights a month with Citizens On Patrol, a group that serves as extra sets of eyes and ears for the RCMP. He’s also president of the North Okanagan Shuswap Crime Stoppers Society. “I’m one of just a few volunteers that spend hours every week to make this a safer community,” he said. “I have a business, I have friends and I have family, and I want this to be a great community and I’m willing to work towards that. “I just make the time to do it. That’s my thing, how I give back to my community.”

Prolific offender picked up Morning Star Staff

One of the strategic priorities for the Vernon RCMP detachment’s policing initiatives in 2010 is crime reduction, which includes monitoring the activities of prolific offenders. Sometimes, it helps the RCMP’s initiatives when the prolific offenders draw attention to themselves. Two members of the community response unit were conducting an investigation on Silver Star Road Tuesday in relation to property offences when they noticed a blue

pick-up truck weaving back and forth over the centre line. “The officers noticed right away that the vehicle was improperly licensed,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. The driver was a 49-year-old man police consider a prolific offender with over 60 entries on the police system. He had four outstanding warrants for his arrest for breach of probation, theft under, and failure to attend court. The vehicle he was driving was impounded

anadian Passport renewal – $87. Various vaccinations, malaria tablets and other prescriptions – $200. New Nikon camera body to take stunning documentary photos – $900. Watching your trip to Africa go up in smoke (or in this particular case, a plume of volcanic ash) – priceless. What are the chances that an Icelandic volcano erupting 11,000 kilometres away from my final destination in Johannesburg (it’s not even in the same hemisphere) would thwart a two-week freelance gig I had planned to South Africa, Lesotho and Graeme Corbett Swaziland? I’ve been looking forward to this trip to the dark continent for months, so to watch it fizzle out because of a random act of nature is more than a little disappointing. Seriously, if I can’t laugh about it, someone will have to take any and all sharp, pointy objects away from me. I’ve been to Egypt, but it has more of a connection with the Middle East, so it just doesn’t seem quite the same. I vaguely remember waking up the morning news broke about the volcano, and listening to some obscure brief about an eruption in Iceland. “Not my concern,” is what I thought at the time... how wrong was I? My problem stemmed from my flight connection at Heathrow Airport in London, which as you probably know was shut down for nearly a week, along with most other major airports in Western Europe (Heathrow reopened Tuesday night apparently). Hence, no air travel and no opportunity to tell the stories of people living in some fairly impoverished places, and the things Canadian organizations are doing to help them. I’m a firm believer in things happening for a reason, and many people said as much when I told them the news. Call it kismet, call

AT RANDOM

it karma, call it whatever you like, I have witnessed serendipity work in my life before and I have to believe this is no exception. Given the curve ball this little volcano just threw at my life, I also have to believe it will have some fairly major ramifications on what lies ahead. Maybe I should run down to Timmys and redouble my efforts to roll up the rim to win, or start a lava rock landscaping business. Who knows what the effect will be with these things? On the bright side, my schedule is now clear to go to the tourist haven that is Dauphin, Man. for the Royal Bank Cup, providing the Vernon Vipers brush back the Spruce Grove Saints in the Doyle Cup Championship. While a trip to the Prairies isn’t exactly on my bucket list (I lie – I’ve got to take in a Riders’ game at Taylor Field in Regina), Morning Star crime reporter Roger Knox graciously pointed out, with only a hint of mockery, that Dauphin is the honeymoon capital of that province. Things could definitely be worse... 1) I could have started my two-day journey to Africa just as European airspace was shut down, becoming one of more than a million people stranded daily by Eyjafjallajoekull (that’s the volcano’s name in Icelandic). 2) I could have been on a plane that flew right through a volcanic ash cloud, kind of like what retired British Airways captain Eric Moody did in 1982. He unknowingly piloted his Boeing 747 through an ash cloud over Jakarta, Indonesia, lost all four engines and was forced to turn that giant hunk of metal into a glider for 13 minutes before the engines restarted. I like an adventure, but I have my limits. 3) I could be living in Iceland. Interesting place to visit and the geothermal tourist attractions are great, but man is it cold there. I’m sure there will be other opportunities to do freelance work in South Africa and other developing nations in the future. If there was ever need of a reminder that the world faces a constant challenge, this volcano was it.

If people weren’t getting the message about the scarcity of the local water supply before, they certainly should now. It’s not even the end of April yet and Greater Vernon has announced stage three water restrictions. That means households can only use sprinklers once a week. Normally at this time of year residences would be on the standard stage one regulations, which calls for alternate-day watering. However, authorities last week were talking about adopting stage two restrictions, twice a week, before deciding on skipping that stage and going to stage three due to the seriousness of the situation. “We’re totally in areas we’ve never been before,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager. A continuously low snowpack over the last several years and a lack of precipitation have taken a beating on Greater Vernon’s water supply. The reservoirs are just over half what they should be at this time of year. Agriculture users, who use the bulk of the water for their livelihood, will be asked to voluntarily reduce up to 20 per cent of their water use. Obviously the water supply situation is serious and we encourage all concerned to follow the stage three restrictions. We also ask everyone to think first before using water as we all can do more to cut back on our use of this precious resource. It’s ironic that stage three restrictions were announced on Earth Day, once again forcing us to think twice about our environment and what we take for granted on a daily basis. Practising conservation of water shouldn’t be an option, it should be how we live our life.

S

o once again, an MLA has denied the need to increase the minimum wage. Eric Foster is by no means the first to do this. Numerous times MLAs have argued in favour of maintaining that rate, even though they see no problem with increasing their own salaries. The MLA base salary is now $101,859 per year (a 34 per cent increase from the previous 2007 base), which comes to over $32.50 an hour even if you assume a 60-hour week. By comparison the B.C. minimum wage is $8.00 an hour, unchanged since November 2001. Foster also says (Morning Star, April 4th): “To say that there are hundreds of thousands of people on minimum wage is misleading.” Is he so out of touch with reality, or is he simply repeating what his government A REAL MESS I am a resident near Deer Park, Dixon Dam area. There are probably many of you out there that would be interested to know what kind of things are going on in the dam these days. On a regular basis, we are faced with loitering, garbage and latenight music coming from vehicles hanging around the area. I just want to say that if you live in town and drive your garbage to our neighborhood, you spent more on gas than you would have at the dump. If you live near the area, shame on you, you just dumped in your own backyard! It is a disgusting example for future generations. On a continuous basis...people are having pallet fires, and burning garbage. In the heat of the summer, I assure you, very few of us sleep through the night wondering if the Friday or Saturday night “bonfire” has been put out ....not likely. And we think last year was dry! Unfortunately, I haven't even told the worst of it yet! The dam itself is absolutely disgusting. There are at least 20 burnt cars (most likely stolen), garbage and other abandoned things. If

tells him to say? Statistics Canada reported that in 2008, 751,400 Canadians worked at or below the minimum wage, representing 5.2 per cent of employees in the country. That’s a significant percentage. One person in 20. With a Vernon working

I owned land that was used as a dumping ground...I would be concerned! Without legal action, we are encouraging this activity to happen over and over again. This is completely unacceptable. There are still natural water ways running through there that drain into BX Creek and our well water. They are currently being fed by oil, antifreeze, gas, diesel, and grease – we should all be concerned! Deer Park Residents RIGHT TAX, WRONG RATE For months now I've been reading various letters and opinions regarding the HST, plus I've attended several seminars to become more educated on how the tax will effect both business and the individual consumer. As a professional accountant working in industry, I have a vested interest on the effects to both. Recently, Brenda Giesbrecht wrote in to explain the transparency of a 'point of sale' tax system [GST/HST] and she is spot on that the move to the HST will remove many hidden layers of taxation businesses are currently forced to absorb, and push theses taxes out

population of 19,000 this means 1,000 are below the poverty level. The Canadian Labour Congress said in 2005 that a single person working fulltime in Canada needed an hourly rate of at least $10 to reach a poverty-line income. And the CLC estimates that a quarter of all

to the end consumer. Through the Input Tax Credit, businesses will receive a refund or credit for all HST they pay on goods and supplies, which will reduce their cost of business. Will we see a drop in prices? The Campbell government believes the free market will adjust accordingly through natural competition, we'll see. Is it the right tax system, yes! Much simpler to administer and pushes the tax out to the end consumer to see and understand how much they are paying. Don't want to pay taxes, consume less! Should consumers want to rally and fight a winnable fight, then go after the tax rate. Adding the current PST of 7 per cent straight on top of the current GST of 5 per cent for a new HST rate of 12 per cent is a crock, and akin to robbery since they claim tax neutrality; the tax base has suddenly enlarged to include services not taxed before under PST. Want to fight a fight you can win -- give up on stopping the HST and rally for a lower rate (10 per cent?). Example: A barber shop with annual sales of $100,000 will now collect $7,000 extra in taxes; their costs being mostly

workers make less than that. The Vanier Institute of the Family, in its 2005 submission to the Federal Labour Standards Review, said the minimum wage is now "not even close" to being a living wage. “No longer can a minimum wage employee hope to provide for a family,” it said. “Even two minimum wages in a household will not protect its children from the short-term and long-term consequences of poverty.” But what Stats Canada won't — and can't — determine is a poverty rate. And that's because the politicians haven't agreed on exactly what poverty is. It's no coincidence that the lowest paid jobs are typically non-union. Unlike MLAs, most people earning low wages have neither collective bargaining power nor political support. Jim Elderton

labour, let's estimate their products to be $15,000 for the year for which the government won't get PST on these product purchases of $1,050; so the government has bagged $5,950 from hair cuts it would not have had under the old PST method - tax neutral? My last gripe, and this is a big one, real estate: new homes will now have 12 per cent HST, the old GST rebates still applies for the federal 5 per cent, for the provincial 7 per cent there is a rebate of 5 per cent given so that the new tax is effectively 2 per cent. This makes sense as the builder will no longer be paying PST on the supplies used to build the house, so his price should drop accordingly. Here is the kick, they built in a luxury tax: at a price of $525,000 the rebate on the 5 per cent ceases, and every dollar paid above $525,000 you will pay the full 7 per cent without a rebate – i.e. on a home with a price of $700,000 as of July 1, you will pay an additional $8,750 in luxury taxes (taxes beyond the 2 per cent the home builder did not pay, or 5 per cent). Combine this with the federal GST rebate being zero over $450,000 and the B.C. land trans-

fer tax and you have the makings of an economy killer. I hope we all took some enjoyment from the Olympics as it is now time to pay, and Mr. Campbell has a way! Brad Hansen

Compassion, dignity for crime victims ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Regardless of who they are, where they live or the way they were victimized, everyone who is a victim of crime should be treated with compassion and respect for their dignity. “Every Victim Matters” is the theme chosen for the fifth annual National Victims of Crime Awareness Week, which began Sunday and runs to Saturday. “Victims of crime have a role in Canada’s justice system, and there are laws, policies and programs which give them an opportunity to participate and have their voices heard at different stages in the criminal justice process,” explained Stacy BirbanLauman, assistant co-ordinator of the North Okanagan RCMP Victims Assistance Program. According to 2004 Stats Canada numbers, there were

“Victims of crime have a role in Canada’s justice system...” — Stacy Birban-Lauman more than two million violent incidents in Canada against people 15 years of age and older, crimes that impacted victims emotionally, physically, financially and psychologically. In the North Okanagan, there are two victim services programs which provide support to crime victims. North Okanagan RCMP Victims Assistance responds to 32 different types of crime and/ or trauma, and works to provide emotional and practical support to victims. SpecializedVictimsAssistance offers support and information to women, men and children who have been victimized as a

result of a sexual assault, violence in an intimate relationship, child sexual abuse (recent or historical), elder abuse and criminal harassment or stalking. Both programs can also assist victims by providing court updates and support, as well as assistance in completing victim impact statements. “We respond in person or by phone to files referred to us by the RCMP, and we’re available 24 hours a day,” said Birban-Lauman, whose office is aided by eight volunteers with five more currently being trained. “Volunteers or staff would respond on scene, at a home, the hospital or the

detachment to provide support to the victims, their family members or witnesses of crime. “It’s like crisis intervention. We offer emotional support, act as a liaison between police, coroner, fire departments if necessary, and we provide any information we can to the victims of crime.” A victims assistance volunteer must put in 75 hours of training. Anybody interested in becoming a volunteer, or for more information about victims assistance programs, can call the local office at 260-7171. The number for Specialized Victims Assistance is 250-542-3322, and there’s also a Victim Link 24-hour support and information line for crime victims, 1-800-5630808.

West Nile virus concerns directors RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There is growing concern the North Okanagan isn’t prepared for a West Nile virus outbreak. The No r t h Okanagan Regional District board is demanding that the Ministry of Healthy Living take action over reducing mosquito infestations in the region because the insect can pass the virus on to people. “If we have an outbreak, how will the government handle it?” said chairman Herman Halvorson. Halvorson believes the ministry’s priorities have been elsewhere. “They got funding in the OkanaganSimilkameen and Central Okanagan (for mosquito control) and we got nothing,” he said. “In the North Okanagan, we’re being treated differently than other regional districts.” A NORD staff report indicates that only four regional districts in B.C. are eligible for West Nilerelated funding as of February. “These areas were designated by the ministry to ensure sufficient funds are available to meet the requests from areas that have the highest priority from a health perspective,” said Nicole Kohnert, manager of environmental services. However, officials insist the North Okanagan should be on the list. “Culex pipiens and culex tarsalis, the West Nile virus-carrying mosquotes exist in large numbers in the North Okanagan,” said Kohnert in her report. “Mosquitoes have been treated manually by applying larvacide in the North Okanagan for the last four years using provincial funding to protect against West Nile virus.” And most mosquitoes are concentrated right in Halvorson’s backyard.

“ The biggest amount of mosquitoes that carry the virus are in Area F,” said Halvorson, director for

rural Enderby. While the regional district has a West Nile response plan, there are no known provin-

cial government protocols that indicate what type of treatment will be used of the virus spreads rapidly.

“If we do have to spray, it will affect tourism, organic farming and it will affect us all,” said Halvorson.

City rejects suite proposal

TimLimi e O ted ffe r!!

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Normally, Armstrong council is pro-affordable housing. However, when a neighbourhood community turns out en masse to speak against a plan to allow basement suites in homes, council listens. After more than 20 people showed up for a public hearing to speak against one couple’s desire to build a home with a basement suite, council denied the couple’s bid for a zoning amendment that would have allowed the property in the 3800 block of Atkinson Place go from R1 low density single family to R1B residential secondary suite. “The whole community showed up, said they didn’t want it and we listened to them,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. A petition was signed by the residents of the subdivision, stating their opposition to the zoning change application. Among the signees was resident Klia Cawston, who felt that basement suites didn’t fit into the neighbourhood, where homes go anywhere from $460,000 to half-a-million. “I bought my lot and built a house in hopes of retiring there, and all the decisions I’ve made are about being there long-term,” said Cawston. “It’s not that I don’t want families, I don’t want duplexes or basement suites. “I’d like to see it stay single family zoning like when I first bought it.” Council’s response was not what Clint and Holly Martin hoped for, as they were the ones requesting the zoning change for their lot in the subdivision. “It’s tough,” said Holly. “We don’t fully understand because there are suites in the area, so we don’t know why this one would get denied “If the community doesn’t want it, they don’t want it, but it sounded like that’s the way Armstrong wanted to go, being able to put in suites to make more affordable housing for young families.” “We have passed that zoning in phase two of the subdivision and some people spoke against it at that time,” admitted Pieper. “Legalizing suites is an affordable housing initiative that generally this council supports. But when the whole community shows up and says they don’t want it in their particular area, we sided with the community.”

A renal program has received $750,000 in new equipment to better serve the approximately 100 Central and North Okanagan patients who receive dialysis each year through community dialysis. Through this funding, seven hemodialysis machines will be located in Vernon, while another 18 will be in Kelowna. “This equipment is the lifeline for patients with kidney disease, so these are important upgrades for our program,” said Dr. Gerry Karr, medical director of the Interior Health Authority’s kidney services. In addition to treatment, the renal program provides nutritional information, education and social supports for approximately 650 patients in the North and Central Okanagan with chronic kidney disease and for those at risk of reaching that stage. “We have a multi-disciplinary team consisting of dieticians, nurses and social workers who work together with the patient to slow the progression of the disease by assisting with lifestyle changes and providing proper care,” said Teri Pentland, manager of renal services.

Once again has been voted one of the Best Kitchen Companies by Okanagan Life Magazine 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008 & 2009

After the demonstrations, the club will hold their annual general meeting, which is for club members only, to discuss a new leadership group after the passing of Bill Lewis. “He was instrumental in having (iaido) here,” said long-time student Manfred Harter. “I think I was one of his first students and when he was dying, I kept the class going.” The AGM will educate members about Lewis’ life and contributions to iaido as well as laying out goals for the future of the club. Anyone who wishes to watch the seminars should call Harter ahead of time at 250-549-1260. Saturday’s sessions will be at 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. with a Sunday session as well at 9 a.m. Harter says iaido follows a tradition that goes back almost 500 years to Japan. It involves the drawing and sheathing of a samurai sword so it is not taught to those who have yet to reach adulthood. “It’s about physical training and awareness,” said Harter. “It’s a series of complicated and painful moves that are hard on your feet.” A calm mind, physical and mental harmony and serenity are emphasized through iaido. Two sixth-ranked senseis, Peter Gunstone and Hiro Inoue, will attend to help guide the students through their program. More iaido information is on the Canadian Iaido Association website at www.iaido.ca.

Program launches diabetes education Morning Star Staff

A new program will help improve health conditions among some Vernon residents. The Interior Health Authority and the Public Health Agency of Canada are launching a fivemonth initiative to make diabetes education and self management information more accessible to marginalized people. “Ultimately, this program increases the capacity of this population to manage their ill-

ness and to educate each other,” said James Kuecks, the project co-ordinator. “It is a very empowering and inclusive approach.” Type 2 Diabetes is one of the fastest growing diseases in Canada with more than 60,000 new cases each year. “The unfortunate reality is that homeless and low income Canadians are a high risk group for developing diabetes and they face numerous social and

financial obstacles that prevent them from accessing health services,” said Kuecks. The program involves creating community groups for those who are interested in working with health care providers to address their diabetes. These group members then go on to mentor others. “One of the objectives of the project is to create partnerships between urban health centres, local aboriginal friendship cen-

Ottawa chips in for joint green project Morning Star Staff

The federal government has kicked in $500,000 in Asia-Pacific Partnership program funding for a project led by the Okanagan Science and Technology Council, in partnership with Okanagan College. The project will build on existing national and international networks to share research on green building design, and is aimed at reducing 75 per cent of GHG emissions from the heating, cooling and construction of Ron Cannan buildings. “Developing next generation green buildings that generate more energy than they consume, and absorb more greenhouse gases than they emit is a very exciting Jim Hamilton project which the government of Canada is pleased to support,” said Ron Cannan, Lake Country MP. “Investing in research and the development and demonstration of transformational clean energy technologies is one of Canada’s key commitments under the Copenhagen Accord.” Canada’s APP funding of $500,000

for this project represents 50 per cent of the total cost. The remaining half of the funding will be contributed by Okanagan College and its partners. Funding for this project is part of an $8.4 million investment in APP projects announced by Prime Minister Stephen Harper last December in Shanghai, China. “The government’s investment in this project is welcome,” said Jason Richards, OSTEC president. “High tech and green buildings go hand in hand, and this project will enhance our understanding and capacity in this area. We’re pleased to work with Environment Canada and with Okanagan College, which is demonstrating leadership on this front already.” “Taking a different, more sustainable approach to building is critical to developing a changed economy,” added Jim Hamilton, president of Okanagan College. “We’ve recognized that as an institution, and welcome the support from OSTEC and the federal government in developing the information and skills base that will facilitate change in Canada and across the Asia Pacific region,” Canada’s participation in the APP supports its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 17 per cent from 2005 levels by 2020, a target Canada recently inscribed in the Copenhagen Accord.

Snakes snipe Saints in Game 4 GRAEME CORBETT/KEVIN MITCHELL Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Vipers used a high-octane blend of nimble playmaking and lethal straightaway speed to swamp the Spruce Grove Saints 6-3 in Game 4 of the Doyle Cup Junior A Hockey Championship Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre. The Snakes, with their 66th win of the season, now lead the best-of-seven series 3-1. A win in Game 5, which went Thursday night at Wesbild, would earn the Snakes a return to the Royal Bank Cup national championships, May 1-9 in Dauphin, Man. Viper forward Connor Jones, with backto-back goals in the second period, including the winner late in the frame, earned first star. He picked off Joshua Lazowski’s centering pass to earn a shorthanded breakaway for his first goal, electrifying the 2,072 fans. The speedy Kootenay product sniped the top corner over sprawled Saints’ keeper Vincenzo Marozzi from a sharp angle for the second. That goal chased Marozzi (19 saves on 23 shots), who didn’t get a lot of help from his team. Travis Rolheiser recorded 15 stops in relief. The line of Connor, twin brother Kellen and Sahir Gill have accounted for half of Vernon’s 14 goals in this series. “Guys like Connor can bring it every single night,” said the Snakes’ Mike Collins, who busted out of a 12-game goal drought with a two-goal showing. “I was in a bit of a slump there, so I just come out every night and work as hard as I can. If the chances are there, great, but if not, work harder.” Collins, sporting a three-inch welt on his neck from a high stick he took after salting the game with an empty-netter in the final minute, says the experience from last year’s RBC has helped keep the playoffs in perspective. “You’ve got to look at the big picture, and whatever the outcome is, win or lose, you’ve got to stay positive. “We’re just ready to go, we know what we have to — Mike do.” The Saints’ Wes McLeod, the most coveted player in the nation at the January trading deadline, and the rest of Saints’ defensive core had

McLeod, a former Prince George Spruce King, was a teammate of the Jones twins at the World Junior A Challenge last November in PEI. Asked if he gets tired of going up against Connor and Kellen, the Kamloops product replied: “It gets a little frustrating at times, but no, they’re great guys off the ice so it works out good.” Collins Vernon’s David Robinson, sneaking a weak backhand over Marozzi’s right pad, and Spruce Grove’s Bryce Van Brabant, converting a quick passing play between

Liam Darragh and Scott Allen after a turnover in the slot, had the two clubs deadlocked after 20 minutes. Despite the tight score, the Vipers were easily the harder working team, outshooting the Saints 19-7 in the first period, and 40-28 overall. On Spruce Grove’s lone powerplay in the first frame, the Snakes earned two shorthanded breakaways, the best one when Braden Pimm muscled in towards the net but couldn’t beat Marozzi five-hole. Spruce Grove head coach Steve Hamilton said the Vipers played their same up-tempo style on the bigger Wesbild Centre ice surface. “Their high-end guys make things happen off the rush. They’re just real dynamic.

We looked at times just to be fumbling around. We can’t afford to get behind early and not have a response early. “I liked our third period but it’s like putting lipstick on a pig at that point.” Collins fired a puck through Marozzi on an early powerplay to restore Vernon’s lead in the second period. Just when Spruce Grove looked like they might generate some momentum midway through the second, hemming Vernon in their own end, Jonathan Milhouse and rookies Dylan Walchuk and Pat McGillis responded with a solid shift to seize it back. McGillis has filled in admirably for an injured Bryce Kakoske the last few games.

From a healthy scratch as a rookie, to earning quality minutes as power forward with one of the best junior A hockey clubs in Canada, Cole Ikkala has made the most of his opportunity with the Vernon Vipers.

It felt great,â&#x20AC;? smiled McGillis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was tough the first game. After a 30-, 45-second shift I was really tired, but now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m starting to get my legs back. During my time off I spent a lot of time in the gym so I was in alright shape.â&#x20AC;? F o r Milhouse, who played with the host Victoria Grizzlies at last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s RBC, the chance to experience a playoff run has been a treat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone gels together and you have to be at your best going through playoffs,â&#x20AC;? said the Yorba Linda, Calif. native. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were fortunate to be hosting it, but going through all this (playoffs) is a lot of fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to take the route that we did (early exit in B.C. Hockey League playoffs). We wanted to prove that just because we were hosting it we did deserve to be there.â&#x20AC;? Robinson, with his second of the night at 5:54 of the third period made it 5-1 Vernon, but Spruce Grove looked to make a game of it with goals by Kodie Curran and

Josh Keizer just over a minute apart midway through the period. Vipersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; head coach Mark Ferner wisely used his timeout to settle things down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good lesson for us; when momentum starts changing the other way we just need to simplify and make sure weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re on the right side of pucks,â&#x20AC;? said Ferner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not going to roll over just because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a couple-goal lead. You have to give them credit for that, but we werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t as sound as we needed to be.â&#x20AC;? Hamilton challenged his players to show some moxy in Game 5. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My question to the guys is to ask themselves how much longer do they want to keep playing? We have obviously painted ourselves into quite a corner. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually wanna hear the answer, I wanna see the answer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a dynamic team and they create offence far more easily than we do. We have to grind and chip away and when we give up easy goals against, it makes the climb that much steeper.â&#x20AC;? There are 131 teams in the Canadian Junior A Hockey League. The Saints and Vipers were ranked one-two this season.

Vernon skiers had an excellent showing at the prestigious Whistler Cup. Having completed its 17th year, the Whistler Cup has grown to become the largest and most important ski race in North America, and internationally, for athletes aged 11-14 years. The races are held under the auspice of FIS, the international governing body for alpine skiing. With hundreds of young athletes from 23 countries, the Whistler Cup brings together children from many different cultures around the world. Emile Tremblay and Alex Kreutz represented the Vernon Ski Club with some impressive results. Tremblay bolted to a tie for fourth place in Slalom – second Canadian to cross the finish line. She was named to the B.C. Team

said NET’s Andrew Stein. Turn-Key’s regular keepers were both writing final college exams. In other opening night action, the Davidson & Co. Dynamite brushed back the Kal Sports Bar 2-1 at Marshall #3. In a slow starting game, both teams looked as if they were trying to find some skills and get their soccer legs back. Dynamite forward Sebastian Leck opened the scoring midway through the first half by breaking down the side and firing a low sharp angled shot to beat the Kal keeper. Play went back and forth until late in the second half when Dynamite midfielder Jesse (Moses) Knight seemed to walk through a couple of defenders and score the winner. No details from the Monashee’s Pub-Revelstoke Stallions and Concept Physio-Nation of Domination Eagle Homes games were reported.

The North Enderby Timber clipped Turn-Key Controls 2-1 as the North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League season started Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. The Timber opened the scoring in the first half with ageless veteran John Orton cracking a shot far post to beat third-string keeper Preston Tucker. Turn-Key replied in the second half with Chris Jahnig sending a leftfoot volley past keeper Danny Stein. Graham Ross put the Timber ahead shortly after, playing a dipping shot over a crowd. Turn-Key had a great chance to tie it back up but Stein made a phenomenal dive and was able to get one hand on the ball and re-direct it over the goal. “Being the start of the year, we looked quite rusty, and we really need to work on positioning in order to have a successful season,”

Volume sound off for Spike U win Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Volume cranked things up at the Spike University Volleyball Spring Classic Saturday at Seaquam Secondary in Delta. The Under 14 girls, coached by Keith Becker and Chris August, received a late invite to the tournament, and with an eight-player roster, struck gold with a 2-1 (23-25, 25-23, 15-9) final victory over the White Rock Volleyball Club Blacks. The Volume proved to be worthy road warriors, winning six matches in Delta and then rushing home to win the Okanagan Valley title by sweeping the host Kelowna teams Sunday to earn a provincial berth. Hannah Nesbitt, one of the team's off-the-hook setters, provided precision sets as the Volume rebounded in game two of the final. Nesbitt was called on to play power in the deciding game and she played

the position like she was born for the job, crushing ball after ball with tactical expertise. Becker credits the incredible depth of the Volume for success. "To be able to have an athlete play multiple positions on the court at this age is extremely fortunate," he said. "To have every girl on the team have that level of ability is unheard of." Added August: "Watching our athletes dig in, draw from that inner strength and pushing through exhaustion of a sixgame, third set, is sure to be a season highlight." The Volume swept the Sunshine Coast Volleyball Club of Powell River in their opening match, getting killer spikes from the ever-smiling Vicki Schley whose aggressive play shook the opposition all day. Led by the superior net guarding of Emily Thorlakson, the Volume then took

out the Vancouver Geckos in straight sets. Match three saw speedy Megan Squairs provide sharp setting as Vernon brushed back White VC Red. Squairs often sprung above the net for a surprising kill to keep White Rock off balance. The Volume began a "Click, click boom" chant during the match and it was heard loud and often the rest of the classic. Avery Bridge enjoyed a season-best match as the Volume then stopped Big Kahuna 2-0. Bridge was fearless as she dove for balls and converted a high errant set into a monster spike. Bridge supplied awesome blocks and Kayla Marritt was on fire with setting and service. In match five, Searra Becker dominated at the net playing power hitter instead of her normal middle position. Scrappy Kim Nadeau helped at the net and also displayed a stellar service game.

Rugby sevens starting grassroots programs Morning Star Staff

You don’t have to know the difference between a ruck and a scrum. Just show up with some cleats and be ready to go. Boys and girls, aged 11 to 16, are urged to attend a free rugby clinic Sunday from 10 a.m. through 2 p.m. at Kalamalka Secondary School. With 7-aside rugby being included

in the 2016 Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, there are now province-wide grassroots programs underway. “They don’t have to have any experience,” said longtime high school coach Ian Busfield. “It’s actually better they don’t because then they don’t have any bad habits.” New and former coaches are encouraged to attend coaching clinics Friday

(6-9 p.m.) and Saturday (9 a.m.-noon) at Kal. Busfield said there are plans to form a provincial Under 16 team which would play tournaments in Las Vegas and Hong Kong. The head instructor for the clinics is Team Canada 7s coach Shane Thompson. Call Busfield at 558-4590 for further information.

Rocks rally for cause Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Shamrocks will be working hard on and off the floor tonight at the Nor-Val Sports Centre when they tangle with the Vernon Tigers as a part of a doubleheader of lacrosse action dubbed Lacrosse Night in Lacrosseville. The Junior Shamrocks open things at 6 p.m. as they entertain the Vernon Junior Tigers, followed immediately after when the big Rocks take on the Big Cats at approximately 8 p.m. The Shamrocks are taking the opportunity to raise some awareness for the Run to Finish Huntington’s a debilitating genetic brain disorder Lori Pounder that is quite close to the heart of the Shamrocks organization. Former Armstrong Shamrocks Fred and Harry Bongers both have contracted the disorder and some of the other Bongers family members also suffer from the disease. “The Bongers family has long been associated with the Armstrong Shamrocks team. Hugo Bongers, Harry and Fred all played lacrosse and Ellie was the team’s secretary in the 1970s,” said Shamrocks’ GM Ryan Nitchie. “Lori Pounder (Bongers) has acted as our team’s general manager and has volunteered with the team for many years. Now the next generation of Bongers are playing with Braydon Bridge playing with the Junior Shamrocks and Cohen Pounder likely to follow in the family footsteps. As a community organization, we are really happy to support the Bongers family with this awareness campaign and we hope to raise some money for research.” Both the Junior and Senior Shamrocks will donate the proceeds of the 50/50 draw to the Run to the Finish campaign. Askew’s Foods is jumping on board as the game-night sponsor, and has agreed to match whatever funds are raised in the 50-50 draws.

Dauphin takes 3-1 series lead over Ice Wolves The Dauphin Kings appear to be over a bad bout of food poisoning. The Manitoba Junior Hockey League regularseason champions, who had several players vomiting on a 800-kilometre bus trip home from La Ronge, Sask. Saturday night, inched a step closer to capturing their second ANAVET Cup with a 5-3 victory Wednesday night over the La Ronge Ice Wolves before 1,528 fans in Dauphin. The Kings, who set a franchise-high 50 wins this season, now hold a 3-1 lead in the best-ofseven series. Game 5 went Thursday night at Dauphin’s Credit Union Place. “We got it done tonight,” Kings’ GM and head coach Marlin Murray told CKDM-Dauphin. “It was a good effort by our guys. We were a bit mentally tired, I suppose, from everything we’ve been through over the last couple of days, but that was no excuse. We battled through that.” The last time the Kings won the ANAVET was back in 1983 when Barry Trotz was their captain. These days Trotz is behind the bench of the Nashville Predators, spending his summers in Vernon. Dauphin, as host, and the Ice Wolves, will both play in the Royal Bank Cup nationals, May 1-9.

The Pirates enter the league, 20 years after the last time they had senior men’s baseball in the Peach City. “The Diamondbacks will be pitching by committee on Saturday, as work commitments will limit the options,” said Kyle Anderson. “John McInnis is expected to get the ball in Game 1.” On Sunday, the D-Backs host the Pirates for a doubleheader, starting at 1 p.m. at Marshall Field. “Last year’s team Cy Young, Peter Ortman, will get the start in the home opener,” added Anderson. The Diamondbacks encourage the public to check out the ANAF D-Backs. Admission is free and there will be a concession. Joining Vernon and Penticton in the OMBL are the Kelowna Jays and Kamloops Sun Devils, which are both extensions of the college baseball programs at Okanagan College and Thompson Rivers University respectively.

Working on pensions

C

anadians are concerned over the solvency of their pensions and retirement income. With the downturn in the economy last year it became obvious to our government that work needs to be done on pension and securities reform to assure all Canadians that have worked hard and saved will be able to enjoy their retirement. On March 24, the Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, and Parliamentary Secretary Ted Menzies, announced the launch of cross-Canada consultations to gather input from Canadians on ensurColin Mayes ing the ongoing strength of Canada’s retirement income system. The consultations will inform discussions at the next meeting of federal, provincial and territorial Ministers of Finance in May, where the retirement income system will be a key agenda item. Canadians work hard to realize retirement dreams. Our government will be giving Canadians an unprecedented opportunity to provide direct input on the future security and soundness of Canada’s retirement income system. In British Columbia a town hall meeting will be held in Richmond. Canadians not able to attend town hall meetings are encouraged to participate in the online consultations by visiting the Department of Finance’s website: HYPERLINK “http://www.fin.gc.ca/activty/consult/retirementeng.asp” www.fin.gc.ca/activty/consult/retirementeng.asp. The equity markets have recovered and the light is getting brighter at the end of this economic tunnel, but we all know the market and economy cycles. I believe setting regulations and good policy decisions on retirement income will help minimize the risk financial markets have on pension solvency. The Government of Canada only regulates around 10 per cent of the pension funds. The other 90 per cent are regulated by the provinces. Knowing this, it is imperative that we work with the provinces on this issue.

,IGHTSGETTOSHINEONBELOVEDMUSICAL Music school brings the Austrian Alps to life with The Sound of Music KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Anyone who has been breathing for the past 45 years knows the opening lines to one of the most famous musicals of all time. And the hills are about to come alive on stage, quite literally, when the Vernon Community Music Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Lights of Broadway presents The Sound of Music at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre for four shows May 6 to 8. The troupe of 60, which includes 25 young students ages six and up who study musical theatre with VCMS vocal instructor Charity Van Gameren, have been working since September on putting on the iconic production. And anyone who saw Lights of Broadwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat last year knows this group puts on a near professional performance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My motto is go big, or go home,â&#x20AC;? said Van Gameren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sound of Music is so important in peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s minds that if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to do it, I have to do it all the way.â&#x20AC;? Based on the true story of the Von Trapp family, who escaped their homeland of Austria during the Nazi occupation of the Second World War, The Sound of Music is best known for the 1965 film that starred Julie Andrews as nun-to-be-turned-nanny Maria, traipsing around the Austrian alps with her ward of children led by their stern father Capt. George Von Trapp. With such classic songs such as Do-ReMi, Edelweiss, The Sound of Music, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen going on Seventeen and many others, the theatre version of the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical is virtually the same as the film except it contains one extra song: a duet between characters Max Detweiler and the Baroness Elsa Schraeder. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The song is about how they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree on the political situation, and it ties together on why she leaves,â&#x20AC;? said Van Gameren, who when asked how she is solving a problem like Maria, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to look too far for the answer. For the first time since she started producing and directing musicals locally, the Lights of Broadway head is starring in the

I have my degree in vocal performance, so to come out from behind the directorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chair and into the role of Maria felt amazing and natural. She loves music, she lives her life to sing, and loves to teach others to sing as well.â&#x20AC;? Returning from his stand-out role as the lead in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dream Coat is Stephen Friesen as Capt. Von Trapp. A busy family physician who has three children of his own, Friesen says it has been challenging to take on such an iconic role played by the great Christopher Plummer in the film. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a bit of a step back from last year, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more than I thought it was going to

be. These are tough boots to fill and although he comes off an unemotional character at first â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he is very staunch and tries to cover everything up â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting to see what he becomes,â&#x20AC;? said Friesen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This show is very emotional. It brings back memories of other times. When they leave the concert in Austria (to escape the Nazis), it always takes me by surprise. I get quite verklempt when he stops in the middle of singing Edelweiss. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interesting how the emotions take you over.â&#x20AC;? Van Gameren reiterates, saying Friesenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance of Edelweiss has brought tears to her eyes, whereas, the duoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance of the German folk dance, the Laendler, has brought on a different kind of pain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of laughter,â&#x20AC;? said Van Gameren, adding the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s assistant director/choreographer Karina Hettler has been

Blackcomb Way in Vernon Foothills

working with the actors to perfect their steps. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it would be a breeze to pick up, but I now have a whole new respect for Dancing with the Stars,â&#x20AC;? laughed Friesen. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Luckily, we havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stepped on each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feet... much.â&#x20AC;? The younger cast members also get their due. The showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening scene features 20 female cast members chanting in Latin, while others play Austrians. Some of the Von Trapp children are double cast so they all get the opportunity to perform, said Van Gameren, whose daughter Jenae plays Liesl Von Trapp, while longtime Lights member Lisa Stewart plays Mother Abbess. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I sing Doe a Deer right after Sixteen Going on Seventeen, so will be madly changing for the scene back stage,â&#x20AC;? said Jenae, while classically-trained singer Stewart is looking forward putting her own spin on the operatic piece Climb Every Mountain. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of fun,â&#x20AC;? said Trinity Routley, taking on the youngest Von Trapp sibling, Gretl, who gets the final goodbye in the performance of So Long, Farewell. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My other favourite song is The Lonely Goatherd.â&#x20AC;? Van Gameren hints of a big surprise for the famed number involving puppets and billy goats, saying it will be even more wild than the mechanical sheep that zipped across the stage in last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Joseph thanks to the behind-the-scenes work of lighting and technical designer Dave Brotsky. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the last scene where the Von Trapps are in the abbey with the Austrian alps behind them, they literally climb them,â&#x20AC;? said Van Gameren. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dave has an incredible eye for detail and it is obvious in all he does.â&#x20AC;? Detail also comes in the form of costumes, and Van Gameren and her team of parents have been busy sewing, while Jaci Lynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bridal and Formal Wear has helped create the wedding scene and dress Maria wears. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production is also accompanied by live musicians in the form of the Carriage House Orchestra, led by Kelowna Neta Petkau and VCMS instructors Bev Martens and Morna Howie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The North Okanagan has such a wealth of talent. To be able to come together for the purpose of The Sound of Music is so exciting,â&#x20AC;? said Van Gameren, The Sound of Music takes the stage at the Performing Arts Centre May 6 and 7 at 7 p.m. and May 8 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults, and $20 for students and seniors, available at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www. ticketseller.ca.

Aarom Johnson stars as a teen that fights bad guys. suit, hits the street and...yeah, gets the living daylights beat out of him. But the pummelling Dave takes leaves his nerves so fried, so they’re suddenly able to absorb a massive amount of punishment, and the steel braces underneath his skin don’t exactly hurt his prerequisites to fight injustice either. So, under the guise of “Kick Ass,” he teams up (sort of) with Cage, who talks like Adam West and masquerades as “Big Daddy,” and his (cough) 11-year-old daughter “Hit Girl” (Chloe Grace Moretz) to take on crime

lord Frank D’Amico (Mark Strong), whose 18-year- old son (Christoper MintzPlasse) is also a superhero, “Red Mist” — and if you think that moniker sounds an awful lot like a soft drink, his costume actually has him looking a lot like a spokesman for some kind of cherry Mountain Dew. For a movie that overstays its welcome, Kick Ass is never boring. It’s also remarkably perceptive — Johnson and his friends talk and act like genuine high school friends, their exchanges are quirky and fun. Unfortunately, Kick Ass is a very, very mean movie, causing a huge

Time warp tunes Broken Bells: Broken Bells

A

hh, the golden sounds of psychedelia and space-rock are returning, drawn forth Broken

by Bells. The dynamic duo responsible for the groovy incense and peppermints are James Mercer (The Shins) on Dean Gordon-Smith vocals, guitar and bass, and producer Danger Mouse (Gnarls Barkley) on drums, organ and everything else. The band and album is a heady atmospheric collaboration with all the emphasis on expression and creativity. Mercer and Mouse conjure the powerful effect of a lush time warp of psych-rock; swirling keyboards, bleeping sound effects and soft explosions in the distance. Mercer’s voice is tonally matched in spacey bliss, and his clear tenor floats through like a guiding light. Speaking of light, levity prevails throughout the music, always aiming for distant heights in the ether. If blacklights and strobes are tucked away in your basement, set them up, burn incense and turn on Broken Bells.

0HPEHURI7KHDWUH%&

STREET SOUNDS

If that’s not possible, just open your curtains wide, and like the 5th Dimension, let the sun shine in while cranking this album up loud! This music achieves the best of psychedelic intentions, and the atmosphere works and flourishes in all environments. Mercer and Mouse have added another layer on the upcoming wave of space rock that is gaining momentum, and the album has the flowing pace of a soundtrack. The phantasmagoric tone is well anchored by Mercer’s acoustic guitar and Danger Mouse’s drumkit. Their material is melodically strong, and given over to wide swaths of classic organ and reverbladen sounds that induce comfort and uplift. The duo sounds driven by the muse, and although the mood never abates, some key songs break through for notice: The Ghost Inside, Trap Doors, October and the spiraling epic The Mall and Misery. Broken Bells is an album that sounds like it was recorded in an old Victorian house with stained glass windows, beads in doorways, and throw rugs on wooden floors. But no, that’s all part of the illusion, Broken Bells runs on its own time/space continuum.

Farmers branch out with social media campaign Okanagan tree fruit growers have moved from their orchards onto Facebook where they already have thousands of “friends” who post encouraging comments on the wall and pledge to support local farmers. Fred Steele, a member of the executive of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, says just since April 3, more than 2,300 people have signed onto the Facebook page called I support Okanagan Valley Tree Fruit Growers!. He says the site was started by farmers concerned about the low prices they’re receiving for their apples. Growers are receiving just 12 cents a pound, although it costs an average of 22 cents a pound in direct costs to grow the apples. As a protest, they recently sold thousands of low-priced, high-quality apples at the farmers’ market in Kelowna as a way to meet face-to-face with consumers and let them know

about the fix farmers are in. Proceeds went to the local food bank. They’re expanding that action to Abbotsford this weekend, where they’ll be selling 12-cent-a-pound apples in five-pound bags, at the farmers market Saturday. They will also be giving out pamphlets and asking people to contact their MLA and advocate for Okanagan orchardists, said Steele. “We seek public support for both assistance and for cooperation in our quest for a long-term solution for positive pricing of apples.” The BCFGA has met with provincial Agriculture Minister Steve Thomson to request emergency assistance for the industry to allow farmers to continue to nurture their orchards until prices improve. Growers are asking that people go to the online support site and sign up as a way of showing their support for farmers, he said. Just google “I support Okanagan Valley tree fruit growers.”

Aboriginal trades training served Morning Star Staff

New funding of up to $1 million will build skills and success for First Nations, with the Industry Training Authority offering trades training for heavy equipment operator, building maintenance and an aboriginal women in trades program. “This is a great example of how government and First Nations can collaborate to create new opportunities in skilled, well-paying jobs,” said Advanced Education Minister Moira Stilwell. ITA programs build on existing trades training programs, with a focus on the aboriginal learner. Since 2008, more than $2 million has been invested through the Canada-B.C. Labour Market Agreement for skills training programs, developed with the assistance of the Aboriginal Advisory Council. “The Industry Training Authority is delivering on the objectives outlined in our 2008 aboriginal trades and apprenticeship report,” said Kevin Evans, ITA’s CEO. “With 121 trainees in 2008-09, growing to an anticipated over 180 trainees in 2009-10, the Industry Training Authority and our partners in industry and the First Nations community are building new opportunities in the skilled trades for Aboriginal people.” For more information about the Industry

Training Authority’s aboriginal trades training initiatives, go to www.itabc.ca/.

Bail yourself out, flood victims told BARB BROUWER Black Press

If you are up to your knees in floodwater, don’t look to the Columbia-Shuswap Regional District for help. It is not the agency’s mandate to provide assistance in response to an actual or pending flood, and that is now clearly stated in the CSRD’s operations manual. The issue arose earlier in the year when the regional district received a call from a property owner requesting assistance to mitigate flooding on their property. The flooding was caused by snow melt and rain flowing over frozen ground from the property above. Gary Holte, manager of environment and engineering services manager Gary Holte, said there have been similar requests in the past throughout the CSRD, including from a resident who had built in a flood plain. “In the event CSRD staff becomes involved in flooding issues that are not in its mandate, the corporation is exposing itself to risk,” Holte wrote in a memo to the board, noting the new policy would be valuable for staff, who get ‘in-your-face’ calls from residents. “The CSRD does not have a function established for flood protective service, nor does the CSRD tax for such a service.” The policy makes clear that property owners are responsible for protective works on their properties and for developing a protective flood plan for their properties. And, while the CSRD will not respond to flooding incidents, staff will provide agency contact information so those who need assistance for a flood or pending flood can request assistance. In flooding incidents that involve the road drainage system; typically an open ditch adjacent to the road, associated culverts and downstream drainage systems, the Ministry of Transportation and

Infrastructure is the correct agency to contact. Ministr y of Environment is responsible when a flooding incident involves an established drainage course, stream, creek, river or lake, and when flooding impacts adversely on fisheries habitat, its the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans. A flooding incident that involves an application for funding

assistance to the disaster financial assistance fund is in the Provincial Emergency Program’s (PEP) bailiwick. Director Ted Bacigalupo noted that with the Shuswap Emergency Program, CSRD does become involved if an emergency is declared. While he agreed, chief administrative officer Charles Hamilton was quick to point out the basis of the regional dis-

trict’s involvement. “The CSRD takes on a co-ordinating role,” he said.

NOW PICKING!

“We would not get into any mitigative action: that’s up to the other agencies.”

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Someone who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t part of your normal peer group might ask you to participate in something s/he has created. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to join in if you think you would enjoy it; it could as expand your circle of friends. LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Desire is a strong motivator in getting what you want. If it is important enough to you, you will figure out a way to acquire what you crave without making things more complicated than they should be. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t assume others will realize that if you do something for them, they should automatically do something for you in return. If you want a favor from them, make an agreement up front. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) Early indicators may only be straws in the wind, and not likely to give you clues as to whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to come. Make sure things go as you want by pressing forward at all times to achieve the end results you desire.

CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) What makes you more popular than usual with your peers is that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll instinctively be looking for the virtues in your friends, not picking on their faults or the things they do wrong.

For more info call : SHAYNE @ 250-550-3671 Email: swright@vernon.ca www.vernonvolleyball.ca

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) Although it might not be evident to you until later on in the day, you will be lucky before midnight strikes. Hang in there. PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) Because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to be such an attentive listener to a progressive friend who is starting a new endeavor, there may be a way for you to fit into the picture if you want to. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Keep your work-related plans to yourself today. You might be tempted to discuss them with a co-worker, but that could end up working against you if they become known before you can implement them. YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY There are strong indications in your chart that you could make a marked improvement in your financial affairs in the year ahead. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to start thinking about ways to make money instead of merely wishing for it.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ďŹ&#x201A;ashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) If an important matter needs to be taken care of properly today, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t delegate the job to another. There will be no one more effective in handling it than you would be. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) At the moment your sign is very much in tune with some strong financial trends, so although it is important that you use good judgment, you can still be a bit bold, resourceful and imaginative.

4607 34th Street Vernon • 250-542-1975 Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder You can get a button at the Computer Museum in Boston that says, “Usenet (an Internet discussion system) isn’t a right. It’s a right, a left, and a swift uppercut to the jaw.” We have an uppercut in bridge. It occurs when a defender ruffs a trick and after either declarer or dummy overruffs, it promotes a trump trick for the ruffer’s partner. When this deal was originally played, West led the spade ace against four hearts. He continued with the spade king and a third spade, which East ruffed with his heart three. South happily overruffed with the heart six, drew trumps, and claimed, conceding a trick to the club ace.

West was unhappy that his partner had not ruffed with the heart queen, uppercutting South. But East claimed it was not his fault that the contract made. Who was right? If East had ruffed with the heart queen and South had overruffed with his heart king, it would have promoted a trump trick for West and defeated the contract. However, declarer, instead of overruffing, would have discarded his singleton club: a classic loser-on-loser maneuver. Then he would have lost only the first three tricks. The guilty party was West. Knowing that the uppercut was the best chance to defeat the contract, West should have cashed his

club ace before continuing with the third spade. Then it shouldn’t have been too difficult for East to ruff with the heart queen. Remember to take every side-suit trick before trying for an uppercut; otherwise, declarer might be able to make a loser-on-loser play.

Various community organizations are calling on the provincial and federal governments for a moratorium on development on Mara Lake. Waves of concern have recently risen over two marina developments proposed for the 20-squarekilometre lake south-east of Shuswap Lake: Wiseman Creek and Waterway’s Beachbay Village, which together will add about 585 boat slips to Mara. This, says one activist, Joyce Balestra, would result in more traffic on a lake that is already congested in the summer. “In our opinion, there are too many boats on Mara Lake – too much congestion, too much confusion, too much pollution, and this has got to stop,” says Balestra. Accompanied by residents representing various organizations focused on protecting the lake, Balestra met recently with Shuswap MLA George Abbott, and will be having another meeting with Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes to relay concerns and make a request.

“What we’re asking for, with the support of all these other people, we’re asking for a moratorium issued by the federal government and the province on any and all developments involving Mara Lake until they can get together and study it,” she said. In particular, says resident Jack Andrews, the desire is to put a hold on all marina permits until there is funding in place for the Shuswap Lake Integrated Planning Process. Shuswap Environmental Action Society president Jim Cooperman says that Mara is too small and already too impacted from existing development to accommodate the proposed marinas. “We need to have full implementation of SLIPP through the proposed Shuswap Watershed Council, so that decisions like these are vetted by biologists instead of politicians,” says Cooperman. The B.C. government, in Aug. 2007, issued a stoppage on accepting new or amendment applications for commercial docks, commercial marinas or strata moorage on Shuswap and Mara lakes, so as to accommodate SLIPP.

SPRING ONLINE AUCTION

Morning Star Staff

Janie Crockett and Grace Takagi remember growing up with Japanese toys, games, food and crafts. They and other members of the Vernon Japanese Cultural Society bring their traditions to Haru Matsuri, the spring festival associated with cherry blossoms in Japan. “We want this to be a family event where parents and grandparents will take part with their children. The children’s games and toys are fun for everyone and they can make some to take home,” said Takagi. Families can also try Taiko drumming, Wii version, learn origami, try calligraphy and watch a performance by the Chidori-Kai Japanese Dancers. There will be displays of advanced origami, ikebana and bonsai. There will be a display of furoshiki, cloth wrapping. “I remember my grandmother doing this when I was a child,” said Crockett, deftly folding a piece of fabric into a bag. “In Japan, gifts are wrapped this way or you can make a carrier for anything you need. All of this is our heritage and we’ve had it with us all this time and we want the younger generation to remember and to share it with the community.” The Buddhist Church will have a display and there will be gyoza (meat dumplings) for sale. This is a chance to sample the J-Dogs made famous at the Olympics. They’re made with teriyaki wieners and a choice of toppings including fried onions, grated daikon, wasabi mayo and nori, as well as regular condiments. People can register in advance for the special sushi making sessions (11 a.m., 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m.) to learn how to make three kinds of sushi to take home. The cost is $20, including admission and ingredients. Space is limited so pre-registration is encouraged by email jan.mori@shaw.ca or Agnes at 250-545-2165. Haru Matsuri takes place Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Vernon Japanese Cultural Centre at 4895 Bella Vista Rd, Vernon. Admission is $10 per family or $5 for adults and $2 for children. Proceeds will go to the roof replacement fund.

Why you can’t lose weight

T

he statistics on weight loss are grim. Research shows that 95 per cent of people who lose weight eventually gain it back within three years. If you are one of the millions who exercises regularly, eats well and still has problems losing weight, there is something you should know. No diet, fitness program or special pill can counteract the medical reasons interfering with your ability to lose weight and keep it off. Until they are addressed, your probability of successful weight loss is limited. Low Thyroid Rampant Your thyroid gland controls metabolism. It is like the gas pedal in your vehicle. Dr. Denise De Monte When you step on it, your vehicle speeds up. When your thyroid gland is working properly, it keeps your metabolism running at a good clip. But when your thyroid malfunctions, your metabolism slows down and you put on weight. About 50 per cent of people have low thyroid function that is not identified with the standard thyroid blood test. Treatment with natural medicines or natural thyroid hormone is critical to re-establish thyroid function. Too Much Insulin Makes You Fat The food you eat is digested and converted into sugar that is carried by the blood. When your blood sugar levels go up, a signal is sent to the pancreas to release insulin. This important hormone prevents your blood sugar levels from rising too high. Instead of burning sugars as fuel, insulin works to convert and store them as fat in your cells. Too much insulin results in too much fat storage. Avoiding processed foods and refined carbohydrates, restricting sugar intake and exercising can reduce insulin levels. For many people, however, it is more complex and there are other factors that need to be considered. Stress Increases Cortisol There are all kinds of stress including weddings and births, finances, funerals, relationships and work. Whether it’s good or bad stress, the overall effect is the same. Your adrenal glands respond by pumping out cortisol hormone. Stressed out people have high levels of cortisol. This elevates blood pressure, raises blood sugar and suppresses the immune system. Cortisol increases your appetite, glucose production and insulin, resulting in weight gain. Most patients want immediate stress

NATURAL MEDICINE

relief and find it in a series of vitamin and mineral injections that target their nervous systems to calm them down. Hormonal Havoc A couple of glaring examples are men’s bulging bellies due to low testosterone and the estrogen tummies in women of child-bearing age caused by too much estrogen. Women are particularly vulnerable due to fluctuating hormone levels throughout life’s cycles. Many women put on weight during their reproductive years and can’t get it off. An excess or deficiency of hormones can result in weight gain. For example, low levels of progesterone increase insulin levels, resulting in weight gain. Hormones that need to be addressed are identified through saliva and blood testing. Dark Side of Drugs Weight gain and the inability to lose weight are side effects for many drugs. Prescription medications interfere with liver function and your hormonal system, resulting in excess weight. While some drugs are absolutely necessary, others can be replaced with natural medicines. Our World is Toxic Pollution, pesticides, heavy metals, pharmaceuticals and chemicals are absorbed by our bodies from the air, water and food. Your body tries to eliminate these toxins through the liver and other metabolic pathways. But if your liver function is compromised or the toxic burden is too great, these toxins are stored in your fat cells. It’s your body’s way of keeping itself safe from the toxins. The removal of toxins through detoxification treatments and therapies is often necessary before your body can begin to shed excess weight. These are some of the more common explanations of why you can’t lose weight. Until they are corrected, it’s like trying to run a marathon with a broken leg. Despite all your best efforts, you won’t lose weight because your body just can’t. Fortunately, natural medicines and therapies are available to resolve these conditions and put you into fat-burning mode. Dr. Denise De Monte is a naturopathic physician in Vernon at the De Monte Centre Natural Medicine.

The Sneezing Season: Allergies and Your Health Dr. Shelby Entner, ND The end of winter brings the first signs of spring: flowers, grasses and trees blooming. For millions of Canadians it is the beginning of their battle with seasonal allergies, or allergic rhinitis. The Canadian Allergy, Asthma and Immunology Foundation estimates that 20-25% of Canadians have hay fever and with the mild winter we’ve experienced this year in the Okanagan, it may be shaping up to be a tough year for those folks. A mild winter means that we are in for a dryer and warmer spring and summer, increasing pollen counts and creating a longer allergy season. Those who experience seasonal allergies are well aware of how frustrating their symptoms can be. Runny noses, itchy and watery eyes and sneezing are just some of the unpleasant symptoms that have the greatest impact on sufferers. Being prepared ahead of the explosion of pollens and grasses can be a huge benefit for those prone to allergies. Allergies happen when your immune system is exposed to an allergen and your body releases histamine from the mast cells. The response leads to swelling of the mucous membranes, an increased production of mucous and tears and an itchy throat. The body attempts to “capture” the allergen and remove it from the system. Why some people are more prone to allergies and over produce histamine is a complicated matter and may be related to genetics, food sensitivities, stress and general immune health. A survey commissioned by pharmaceutical giant Johnson & Johnson suggests as many as 10 million Canadians may suffer allergy symptoms. The survey also found that 55 per cent of Canadians claim their allergies cut into their productivity and more than a quarter say they’ll limit their outdoor time to prevent the onset of symptoms. Most people experience fatigue and daytime sleepiness, impaired sleep, a decrease in cognitive functioning and an overall sense of unhappiness.

Internal Arts of Health

Treatment options for allergic rhinitis often include reducing your exposure. Certain times of the day, especially in the early morning hours, have the highest pollen counts. Checking the pollen counts on a weather station or website may help to decrease your exposures. Keeping your home clean by washing sheets and towels frequently will help to keep the mucous membranes less irritated. Using a good quality HEPA filter vacuum is also very beneficial.

Pharmacological medications are plentiful but many people dislike the side effects or the dependency they feel having to take something to control a symptom for half of the year. There are numerous clinical studies showing that natural medicines such as Vitamin C, quercetin, butterbur and other nutrients can be as effective as antihistamines but do not create the side effects. Another treatment option that many allergy sufferers have tried is immunotherapy, or allergy shots. Allergy shots can be painful and require many trips to a physician’s office to be administered. For those who fear needles or for children, alternatives are available. In other parts of the world, especially in Europe, sublingual (under the tongue) treatment has become increasingly commonplace. In 1998, the World Health Organization referred to it as a “viable alternative” to injection therapy. We currently treat airborne allergens with the sublingual drops and have high rates of success. It is a gradual desensitization that results in a patient being able to handle pollen, dust, grass or animal dander and not require allergy medications. Many people have been thrilled to realize that they don’t need to get rid of their cat for the sake of their partner’s allergies! Finding safe, effective, and individualized ways to treat allergies allows people to enjoy the spring and summer weather and to get out and celebrate the fantastic outdoor activities we have here in the Okanagan.

He worked for a few years, but didn’t like it and decided to go back into business for himself. He said if it didn’t work out, he would find employment elsewhere. Needless to say, his business is failing, and we are getting behind with our bills. I can only work part time due to health reasons. Archie has sent out a couple of job applications, but hasn’t heard anything yet. I want him to be more aggressive, whether it’s promoting his own business or making followup calls to places where he applied for jobs, but he won’t do it. In this economy, any job would be better than the little he’s doing now. Archie is a bit of a procrastinator, and things are not going to just fall into his lap.

Wood-frame buildings lead new provincial trend TOM FLETCHER Black Press

There are already three six-storey buildings under construction in B.C. that are mainly wood-frame, with 17 more in the planning stages, and Forests Minister Pat Bell says that’s just the beginning of a trend to larger structures built out of wood. One is Library Square in Kamloops, with five floors of wood condos on top of a concrete library and commercial space on the city’s North Shore. Bell said foundation work is underway on another one in Richmond, and the third has begun but hasn’t been formally announced by its builder. All were made possible by recent changes to the B.C. building code to allow up to six floors completely in wood, up from four. As with a recent six-storey apartment demonstration project Bell announced in Beijing at the end of March, the early B.C. buildings are mainly residential. Commercial and institutional buildings are another big potential growth area for wood, Bell emphasized Tuesday as he announced a $1.75 million provincial grant to fund a new Wood Enterprise Coalition. The coalition is a partnership of three existing organizations: WoodWORKS!, a federally led educational group with programs in B.C., Alberta and Ontario; B.C. Wood Specialties Group, a marketing arm for value-added manufacturers with representatives in Europe, Japan, Korea, China and the U.S.; and FPInnovations, a federally-led research project that is now the world’s largest not-for-profit forest research institute. “In British Columbia we manufacture firstrate wood products, from elaborate millwork to First Nations carvings to pre-built homes and large engineered beams that were seen by the world at the Richmond Olympic oval,” said Grant McKinnon, chair of B.C. Wood Specialites

Group. “However, very little commercial construction in North America is wood-based con-

struction. “By educating those who influence the specification of wood in construction, we will be able

to show that wood is the better environmental option, more esthetically pleasing than steel or concrete, and if wood

is part of the planning process at the beginning, it can be a cost-effective alternative.” Bell estimates that

wood products now account for 19 per cent of commercial and institutional construction in North America.

That could potentially be increased to 85 per cent, creating a huge new demand for B.C. wood products, he said.

News Immunization Awareness Week a good reminder to update shots April 24 to May 1 is National Immunization Awareness Week, and the Interior Health Authority is reminding residents about the importance of making sure everyone is up-todate with immunizations. Recent outbreaks of whooping cough (pertussis) and measles in B.C. have highlighted the importance of the need to keep immunization rates high. When immunization rates fall, diseases have the opportunity to make a come back. Apart from smallpox, which has been eradicated, all of the other vaccine–preventable diseases continue to circulate in many parts of the world. With global travel, many of these diseases are only a plane ride away. In B.C., childhood immunizations are given at two, four, six, 12 and 18 months, with a booster shot at school entry. These shots provide protection from diphtheria, whooping cough ( pertussis), tetanus, polio, measles, mumps, hepatitis B, German measles (rubella), Haemophilus influenza b (Hib), meningitis (meningococcal C), pneumococcal disease, influenza and chickenpox (varicella). As children get older, the immunity provided by childhood vaccines can wear off, and as they enter their preteen years, there is also a risk of new diseases. That’s why school-aged immunizations are also important. Routine school-aged immunizations are free and easy to get. Public health nurses provide immunization at school to students who have returned a completed and signed consent card. Some immunizations given in childhood, such as tetanus, need a booster to maintain protection in later life. Maintaining tetanus protection as an adult means getting a tetanus booster once every ten years. Tetanus is a very serious disease that kills up to one in five people who get it. It is caused

by a bacteria mostly found in soil that enters the skin through a cut

or scrape. The bacteria then produce a poison that can cause painful

tightening of muscles all over the body. Tetanus is also known as lockjaw,

because often the first muscles affected are those of the jaw. That’s

why before you head out into the garden this spring, it’s important to

make sure you are up to date with your tetanus immunization.

Helping People Help Themselves Stenberg College offers students an innovative route to psychiatric nursing by Amy Juschka

D

uring the most difficult time of her life, Jamie Greenslade chose to empower herself in the face of adversity; she chose to pursue a career in psychiatric nursing. “My mom, who recently passed away, has been ill pretty much my entire adult life,” says Greenslade. “It came to a point that she was so ill, I was really at a loss for what to do.” A lung transplant left Greenslade’s mother susceptible to a wide range of medical complications—and a shortened life span. “Physicians, specialists and ICU doctors … use terminology that you really need to understand [if you’re going] to ask the right questions,” says Greenslade. “Leaving that up to my father was too much for him and my mom.” Overwhelmed by her mother’s deteriorating condition, Greenslade decided to take her mom’s health into her own hands. “What I thought at that time was, ‘yeah, I could become an RN and that would be great,’” explains Greenslade. “But I was attracted to a more holistic approach to nursing. “In psychiatric nursing we look at a person’s mind, body and soul versus just fixing and tuning up their body. With my mom’s illness I couldn’t help but think how this was affecting her psychologically and I thought, ‘if I train to become a Registered Psychiatric Nurse I can help others, and I can learn to help my mom as well.’” Though she eventually succumbed to her illness, Greenslade was able to make her mother’s last years as comfortable as possible. “I was her only daughter and I’m proud that even though she’s gone, I was able to do everything in my power to ensure that I cared for her and advocated for her to the very end.” Today, with nine years of psychiatric nursing experience ranging from acute to hospice care, Greenslade shares her industry expertise and genuine passion for healing with tomorrow’s registered psychiatric nurses (RPNs)—as a clinical instructor and coordinator with the Regional Diploma in Psychiatric Nursing (RDPN) program at Stenberg College. A private health care and human services college based in Surrey, B.C., Stenberg equips its students with a strong combination of specialized knowledge and practical and critical thinking that employers want. By utilizing the most current industry techniques and placing its students in first-rate preceptorships, Stenberg’s superior, career-oriented programs ensure graduates are thoroughly prepared for the workforce.

A unique learning opportunity When it comes to excellence in education combined with relevant learning that meets industry demands, Stenberg’s RDPN program

hits the mark. For the first time in British Columbia it is possible to pursue an education in psychiatric nursing without relocating to the Lower Mainland. Stenberg’s RDPN program offers students a unique opportunity. A combination of educational delivery methods combined with clinical placements in the student’s local health authority means prospective RPNs can undertake psychiatric nursing education from remote cities and communities across the province. “I used to get phone calls all the time from people not wanting to have to move,” says Dr. Jacqollyne Keath, Stenberg’s new Dean of Psychiatric Nursing who, after an impressive career encompassing everything from front line nursing to administration to teaching, joined the Stenberg team in October 2009. Those who are familiar with Keath’s work as a psychiatric nurse or, like Greenslade, who can count her as a former teacher and mentor, would be surprised to learn that Keath has a passion outside of nursing. For Keath, who has a bachelor’s degree in music, unwinding after a busy day means performing with Opera Appassionata, a Vancouver-based non-profit organization that stages operas and opera-related events in the community.

Here in B.C., where the number of retiring nurses is exceeding the number of graduates, Stenberg offers its students a shorter route to a career in psychiatric nursing. While other programs in Canada typically range from three to four years in length, Stenberg students complete their theory and clinical practice in less than two years. “My first love is the stage, and nursing itself is looked at as an art and a science so in that sense, nursing has always been a great fit.” Having previously served as Executive Director with the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of British Columbia (CRPNBC), as well as on several college committees, Keath understands first-hand the need for online nursing education in British Columbia. “It’s different from other programs because in essence they’re schooling from home, which saves students having to be uprooted.” Apart from a two-day orientation on the Stenberg campus, all theory courses offered during the 23-month diploma program are online, meaning that students can train from home and often complete their 1,400 hours of clinical practice (400 hours more than the stipulated requirement) in their own local areas. With just two per cent of RPNs practicing

in what are termed ‘rural and remote’ areas of B.C. (Canadian Institute for Health Information, 2007), Stenberg’s RDPN program seeks to address the considerable nursing shortage in regions outside the Lower Mainland. “There are a lot of nurses in northern communities, but not a lot of psychiatric nurses so you end up with a situation where it’s not always the best practitioner working with our clients,” says Keath. “Because all the diploma programs were located in the [Lower] Mainland, students would come from rural B.C. to study, and then would stay and work here,” explains Tracey Purvis, Stenberg’s RDPN program manager and coordinator. “So they weren’t necessarily addressing the nursing shortage in rural B.C.” Registered Psychiatric Nurses represent the single largest group of health care providers in the mental health field. They often work on the front lines—as members of an interdisciplinary team of health care professionals that includes doctors, psychiatrists, psychologists and other registered nurses. Registered psychiatric nurses can typically expect entry-level earnings to start at about $29 per hour, capping off at just over $38 per hour— which, according to BC Work Futures, falls above the provincial average. Some RPNs, such as forensic psychiatric nurses, earn even more. A diploma in psychiatric nursing imparts graduates with specialized knowledge and the skills to provide care in a variety of mental health settings, including forensic psychiatry, addiction facilities, acute care, hospice care, medical clinics and home care agencies. “Psychiatric nursing specializes only in mental health,” explains Greenslade. “But with that said, [RDPN] students have to do a medical and surgical rotation in their training, both theory and clinical, because we are registered nurses

so there is an expectation that we are capable of critical decision making utilizing a holistic approach to nursing, as opposed to just a medical or psychiatric approach.”

Addressing the nursing shortage Stenberg’s RDPN program curriculum includes lab, online courses, tutorial and clinical experience, taught and supervised by qualified psychiatric nursing instructors who, like Greenslade, have extensive experience in the field. “This program is really a blessing and a gift because with the nursing shortage, this is exactly the direction that we need to go,” she says. According to the Canadian Nurses Association (2007), the average registered nurse employed in the mental health field is over 46 years old. Canada can expect a shortage of 78,000 registered nurses by 2011 and up to 113,000 by 2016—a shortage that includes registered psychiatric nurses. Here in B.C., where the number of retiring nurses is exceeding the number of graduates, Stenberg offers its students a shorter route to a career in psychiatric nursing. While other programs in Canada typically range from three to four years in length, Stenberg students complete their theory and clinical practice in less than two years. Another unique feature of the RDPN program, offered only at Stenberg, is its special access for Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs). Experienced LPNs are encouraged to apply for advanced standing in the program through Stenberg’s Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition process, which enables eligible LPNs to shed 240 hours off their clinical training. “A program like this makes it so much easier

Become a Psychiatric Nurse in your own community There is an urgent need for more Registered Psychiatric Nurses (RPN), particularly outside the urban areas of the province. And with the workforce aging – the average age of a Registered Psychiatric Nurse in BC is 47 years – the number of retirees from the profession is exceeding the number of graduates. Entry-level earnings start at $29/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is recognized by the CRPNBC. Government funding may be available.

for students to enter the field, which means we help fill that gap faster and put people in a profession that helps others,” says Greenslade.

“Leaders on their feet” It was Stenberg’s shorter route to psychiatric nursing that initially attracted Daisy Martinez to the program. “I always wanted to work in health care facilities, but didn’t have the money,” explains Martinez, who immigrated to Surrey from the Philippines in 2002. “A lot of my friends are in health care and they used to see me volunteer at the church—if ever there was someone who was depressed or needed help I would always be there for them,” says Martinez. “My friends would always tell me that I should become a nurse, but I didn’t have four years to become an RN. “But then my friend told me she had heard about a program that could be completed online in two years. She asked me if I had ever heard of psychiatric nursing and I had.” Today, Martinez has completed her theory and clinical hours and is about to sit her national registration exams. “It’s funny,” she says, “what I liked most about the program is exactly what was so challenging about it. At Stenberg, because school is mostly online, you learn time management very quickly. “It’s what can be so hard, but also what prepares you for life after school.” “This program in a lot of ways is much more challenging than when I went to school,” says Greenslade, who teaches her students remotely from Kamloops. “With online learning, these guys are really required to take initiative and to critically think on their feet from day one.” Having been both a distance education student and an online instructor, Keath understands the unique opportunities and challenges online learning presents. “It’s interesting having taught online because you tend to get a more enriching dialogue than you might in a classroom,” says Keath. “And because you’re online it forces

you to manage your time better so leadership skills are sort of inherent in online learners. “It’s a different mode of learning, not everybody can learn that way, but those who can come out a stronger nurse because they’re leaders on their feet already,” she adds. Purvis, who is currently completing her Master of Nursing degree, and who has also studied online, says that Stenberg’s program can still take people by surprise. “Sometimes nurses can’t believe that there’s a program online; it even took me some time to wrap my head around it, but our numbers definitely don’t lie!”

“Listening is a real gift,” says Martinez. “It’s true in every job, but in nursing it’s especially important.”

With a 100 per cent pass rate in their psychiatric nursing registration exams, and with 96 per cent of Stenberg graduates securing employment in their field within four weeks of graduation, Stenberg’s innovative online program has certainly been a success.

A rewarding career After moving to Kelowna from Prince George, Mike Gill wanted a new start, but wasn’t interested in a traditional classroom setting. “I was looking for a new direction in life, a new path,” he explains. “I have a business degree from UNBC and I worked in that field for about five years, but I wanted to do something different.” For Gill, online learning was a perfect fit. “You have to be an independent kind of person, but that lends itself to the field of psychiatric nursing anyway because what I’m discovering now is that you have to be able to figure stuff out and use your

deductive skills,” he says. Within one month of graduating, Gill began working as a casual RPN at Kelowna General Hospital (KGH) and the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. He credits his preceptorships at both hospitals for paving the way to employment. “I applied for a job at KGH and had an interview the same week I wrote my registration exam. That’s something I never imagined would happen; getting a job so quickly.” Today, he is enjoying the fast-paced nature of psychiatric nursing in a hospital setting, but hopes to one day pursue community nursing. “One of my instructors at Stenberg—one of my mentors really—painted the picture early on in our schooling that, yes there is a community aspect of psychiatric nursing, but in that setting you’re basically flying solo in the community, so I’ve been focusing on the acute side of things to develop my skills and learn a bit more,” says Gill. “Eventually I would like to work in the community, but for the time being I’m pretty content just learning and working with a team.” As for the rewards of psychiatric nursing, both Gill and Martinez say the best thing about the job is helping their clients.

“Our clients are usually at a time in their lives where they’re hurting,” explains Gill. “You have to be genuinely caring and empathetic to their situation.” “Listening is a real gift,” says Martinez. “It’s true in every job, but in nursing it’s especially important.” “There are times that you don’t need to speak—sometimes just being there and being available to a client is therapeutic in itself.” Greenslade, who dreams of one day winning the lottery and opening a hospice care facility, is proud of the genuine empathy and understanding Stenberg-educated RPNs demonstrate in the field. “They just keep going in the right direction in terms of professionalism and reputation,” says Greenslade. “Stenberg genuinely cares about the type of nurses we want working in the field.” For more information on Stenberg College’s Regional Diploma in Psychiatric Nursing program visit www.StenbergCollege.com or call Toll-Free: 1-87-STENBERG.

New pest causing concern in Okanagan forests JENNIFER SMITH Black Press

KELOWNA - It appears the crispy red trees of the infamous pine beetle scourge will take a back seat to a new environmental blight this year. A new pest is moving into Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forests and threatening a whole host of

THE

tree species. Not only that, the Douglas fir tussock moth also leaves people in the areas it invades a little red and itchy, as about 20 per cent of the population has an allergic reaction to the insect, called tussockosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re quite a menace to your health,â&#x20AC;? said Ministry

of Forests entomologist Lorraine Maclauchlan. The hairy creatures can cause a rash and serious respiratory problems in those who have the allergic reaction, which affects pets, horses and livestock at roughly the same rate. While not quite as pervasive as the pine beetle, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

already in several Kelowna neighbourhoods; though only the caterpillars can move about to expand the region the insect infects, as the female moth cannot fly. As such, city council has set the ball in motion to spend as much as $50,000 to spray non-toxic, naturally occurring pathogens

on areas in Glenmore, Knox Mountain and along Clifton Road this spring in an effort to hasten the infestation. Rather than wait through the naturally occurring fouryear invasion cycle, the sprays are meant to knock the cycle back to one year. The B.C. outbreak began in 2008 and by last year there

were spots in Princeton, Hedley and surrounding Kelowna among the 17,500 hectares infected within the province. As the beetle thrives in dry, low-lying regions where cities develop, it often inhabits large chunks of private land, making it very difficult for officials to stop.

Hilbert ‘Bert’ Schmidt June 18, 1945 - April 19, 2010 After a two year battle with diabetic related illnesses, Bert was called home to be with his Lord in the early hours of April 19 with family by his side. Bert was predeceased by his father, August, his mother Nadina and his sister, Ruth. Bert is survived by his loving and dedicated wife, Mary, daughter Jennifer Warawa (Shane), and his brothers, Herman (Inez) of Edmonton, Ruben (Lorraine) of Calgary and Norman (Rose) of New Sarepta, as well as many nieces, nephews, family and friends. Bert was well known throughout the Okanagan Valley for his business ventures, including Bert’s Bobcat, Okanagan Skid Steer and British Columbia Trailer, as well as his frequent coffee breaks all over Kelowna with friends. He had a very entrepreneurial spirit and came up with a new business idea on an almost weekly basis, and those who knew him well knew his favorite hobby was working. Bert’s family would like to sincerely thank everyone who supported and encouraged him right until the end and believed in him regardless of the circumstances. Bert will be missed dearly by those who knew him, but we also have peace knowing that there will be no more suffering. The family would also like to thank the many Nurses, Doctors and staff at Kelowna General Hospital who cared for Bert over the last two years, and for the excellent care and attention he received while he was briefly in his new home at the Village at Mill Creek. Should family and friends so desire, donations can be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, which Bert supported in the past, #150-6450 Roberts Street, Burnaby, BC, V5G 4E1. Bert’s celebration of life will be held at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC on Saturday, April 24, 2010 at 11:00 am. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.springfieldfuneralhome.com, 250-860-7077.
