Rash of break-ins may be linked ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are investigating the possibility a string of commercial break-ins Wednesday and Thursday are related. Police report five businesses in Armstrong and Vernon were broken into. “It’s too early to tell but we’re looking into the possibility the crimes are related,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. The first report came in shortly before 11 p.m. Thursday in the 2300 block of Smith Drive in Armstrong, where a business had its front doors smashed – possibly by a vehicle. Cash was stolen from inside the business. At 12:38 a.m., an Armstrong business in the 3300 block of Smith Drive also had its doors smashed, and the suspect left with the cash register. An individual was seen leaving the area. He was described as a Caucasian male wearing dark cloth-

ing, and was approximately six-feet tall. RCMP in Vernon were alerted to a B&E in the 1800 block of Highway 6 just after 2 a.m. The glass door of the business was shattered, but it appears nothing was stolen. Less than an hour later, at 2:40 a.m., police were called to the 2200 block of 48th Avenue. Again, the front door was smashed and a cash register was stolen. Finally, at 5:40 a.m., police were called to a breakin at a business in the 2900 block of 27th Street. A white van was observed leaving the area by a witness, and a licence plate number was obtained. Upon investigation, police discovered that the van had been reported stolen earlier in the evening. Anybody with any information on any of the break-and-enters is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

An alleged road rage incident in a Vernon business lot has led to police recommending charges against a Shuswap man. The incident started on Highway 97 between Armstrong and Vernon, and ended in a parking lot on 27th Street. Police report two Ford F350 pickups – one a 2003 model, the other 2008 – were heading south towards Vernon at around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday when the 2008 truck began tailgating the 2003 model, then cut off the vehicle. Words were exchanged between the two drivers, said police. The older model truck pulled into the business lot, and the driver, a 29-year-old man from Lumby, started walking towards the business. This is when, police say, the 2008 Ford’s driver saw the man, revved his engine and struck the man with his truck. Three witnesses have been spoken to by police about the incident. The driver of the 2008 Ford, a 45-year-old man from Salmon Arm, was arrested at the scene and taken into custody. He was later released on a promise to appear in Vernon Provincial Court June 17. Police are contemplating charges of assault with a weapon and dangerous driving be recommended to Crown counsel against the Salmon Arm man. The Lumby man suffered minor injuries in the incident.

“We had a trucker call and he was telling us about who he’s passing on his route.” If a resident is found breaking the restrictions, NORD staff will visit and discuss the matter the first time. A second offence will lead to a letter and a third offence will lead to the resident’s water being turned off. “The Interior Health Authority has stated they have no problem with shutting water off if restrictions are not followed,” said Cotsworth. For residential users, manual sprinklers can 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 at this time, but that policy will be revisited by the NORD board Wednesday. Hand-held sprinkling by residents is allowed at any time. 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.

A Vernon politician believes an agency that promotes environmental education is getting the run-around. Coun. Buffy Baumbrough is concerned the city’s finance committee recommended a $10,000 grant request from the Allan Brooks Nature Centre be forwarded to the North Okanagan Regional District for consideration. “We’re consistently told at the regional district that it does not have a grants program,” she said. She is also concerned that indecision on the part of government will leave the centre without sufficient money to operate. “Time is of the essence for them in terms of making decisions for this season,” said Baumbrough. However, other councillors believe NORD is the suitable jurisdiction to consider the request. “It doesn’t benefit simply the City of Vernon,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. “It should be clear that the regional district has some obligation to things that are regional.” The finance committee has decided to take another look at the grant request, but any decision is on hold until NORD considers the matter. “I don’t want this to fall through the cracks,” said O’Keefe. “If the regional district won’t support it, I want it to come back to the city before we lose Allan Brooks.” Other organizations, though, have received firm answers on financial requests. A one-time grant of $1,000 will go to the Community-Based Youth Services Team while the

Tougher law garners support Morning Star Staff

B.C.’s tougher impaired driving rules have the full endorsement of Vernon’s top cop. Under proposed amendments to the Motor Vehicle Act, police will be able to impose an immediate penalty on anyone who fails a roadside breath test. Instead of issuing a 24-hour suspension, police will be able to impose a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impound the vehicle for 30 days. “We think it’s a great idea,” said Supt. Reg Burgess, with the Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP detachment. “We like the fact it’s a strong deterrent as impaired driving is still a major concern despite all the awareness we have put out. We’re very happy to see this new legislation.” Under the proposed legislation, the fee for reinstating a suspended licence will be increased from $100 to $250, and drivers will also be billed $700 for towing and 30 days of vehicle impoundment. Failing a roadside test will also mean mandatory participation in B.C.’s “responsible driver program” at a cost of $1,420. The changes mean one roadside test could cost a driver $3,750 before driving again, and that is before any criminal code charges and suspensions that may also result. The legislation also provides for a three-day driving ban and a $200

“We like the fact it’s a strong deterrent.” — Reg Burgess administrative penalty for someone who blows a “warn” reading between .05 and .08 on a roadside screening device. This usually results in a 24-hour suspension under current laws. Three “warn” ratings within five years could result in a 30-day ban

and $400 penalty. Mike de Jong, acting Public Safety Minister, calls the new penalties “swift, severe, and the toughest in the country.” Announcing the changes at the Legislature Tuesday, de Jong was flanked by police officers from

around the province, and a couple whose daughter was struck and killed two years ago by a driver charged with impaired driving. Four-year-old Alexa Middelaer was feeding horses at the roadside in Delta when she was killed in 2008. The driver in the incident is scheduled to go to trial in May. Her parents said they were grateful that the latest changes were dedicated to their daughter’s memory. “This does provide a real hope, and I have to say today has been

really inspiring,” Laurel Middelaer said. De Jong said 30 years of “counterattack” promotion and enforcement in B.C. has got the message through to most drivers, but about one in 30 still drinks and drives, and cases have begun to increase in recent years. — with files from Black Press reporter Tom Fletcher

Chess tradition moves students BRENT MUTIS

Morning Star Staff

A tradition approaching thirty years in existence continues to challenge the minds of many Vernon elementary school students. The annual Vernon School District chess championships were held April 22 and 23 at Harwood Elementary. It’s an event that drew 60 competitors from 10 schools in a huge tournament that sees student of various ages and skill levels pitted head to head. There were several tables set up in the Harwood gymnasium with three games and six players each. With parents gathered around the perimeter of the floor, the beginning of each round produced silence, though the noise level grew as games ended and players were free to chat. Lavington Elementary Grade 7 player Jacob Mayner took some time after his first-round victory to talk chess. “I like to think of it as a castle,” he said of the board game. “I like to defend it (and) I like to beat the people that are attacking me.” Mayner was introduced to the game as a sixth grader by teacher Paul Jeffery. He’s ascended the learning curve rapidly and the pupil has even toppled his teacher a couple of times. “He’s really good,” said Mayner. “I’ve beaten him a few times; when I beat him I feel really happy.” Playing a few times a week, Mayner has honed his skill at home against his mom too, though he says he has to give her pointers from time to time. “She’s OK, I’m a little better.” Hundreds of kids like Mayner have taken up the game over the years thanks to now-retired Lavington principal Wally Steinke, who began the event in 1983. “Each school (at the tourna-

BRENT MUTIS/MORNING STAR

Jennifer Adams of Harwood Elementary ponders her next move. ment) has a chess club and we take the top competitors and bring them out to tournament play,” said Hillview Elementary principal Tyler Galenzoski, who has taken over organizing duties since Steinke’s retirement. “This is like a wrap-up tournament.” Galenzoski says the clubs usually produce a three-to-one ratio of boys to girls and there is an assortment of skill levels. “We have a wide range; the kids that have that certain type of intelligence do a lot better,” he said, adding there isn’t necessarily a correlation between academic success and chess prowess. The demands of a game of chess appeal to Hillview Grade 5 student Jake Andrykew, who was playing in his second district tournament. “I think it’s just the way I am,” he said. “I like stuff that challenges me; sometimes you’re in a tough situation and I love wracking my brain to fix the situation.” This year’s winning team was Ellison Elementary followed by Lavington and Harwood. Individual winner and now three-time champion was Nicholas Stanhope, a Grade 7 student from Kidston Elementary.

Lakers hero recalls winner

C

algary’s Cam Sylven was probably not the player Vernon Lakers head coach Eddie Johnstone wanted to see with an overtime breakaway and a national championship on the line. It’s not that the likeable Sylven couldn’t score – he had 15 goals in 60 regular season games that year – but of the 15, only a few were scored on breakaways. “Yeh, I was in a bit of a breakaway drought, to put it bluntly,” laughed Roger Knox Sylven from his office in Calgary, where he works today as a sales rep for a land-based real estate investment firm. But there he was, almost 20 years ago, in alone on New Westminster Royals goalie Corey Cadden, four minutes into sudden death overtime of the 1990 Centennial Cup tournament final in front of an absolute sell-out, shoulder-to-shoulder crowd at the Vernon Civic Arena on May 12. After plucking the puck from Royals defenceman Darwin McClelland at centre ice, Sylven, the most sportsmanlike player of the 1989 Centennial Cup tournament in Summerside, P.E.I., was home free on Cadden. “I remember he gave me a ton of space top shelf on the glove side, and he kept backing into his net, I think that handcuffed him a bit,” said Sylven, whose shot beat Cadden cleanly and gave Vernon its first of two Centennials Cup titles as the Lakers (the franchise has won three Royal Bank Cup titles as the Vipers, and, of course, are now going after their sixth national championship in Dauphin, Man. starting Saturday). The Lakers were only in the Centennial Cup 20 years ago because they were the hosts. New West, easily the best team in the country, went 52-3-4 in the BCHL regular season, beat the Interior Conference champion Lakers (who were 33-20-5) 4-2 in the league final, then won 12 straight games (including a 5-3 decision

over Vernon in the round robin) to reach the Centennial Cup final. The Lakers, who had 28 days off before the tournament, went 3-1 in the round robin (the first year the tournament went to five teams), and eliminated the Nipiwin Hawks of Saskatchewan 11-5 in their semifinal, setting up a rematch with the Royals and a showdown of, arguably, Canada’s top-two junior A squads. In the last game, New West built up a 5-2 lead after 40 minutes, chasing Vernon starting goalie Dean Kuntz in favour of Murray Caton, and began the third period on a power play. However, Lakers forward Garth Geddes scored shorthanded early to make it 5-3. Midway through the period, Vernon native Duane Dennis made it 5-4, setting the stage for the Lakers’ version of Paul Henderson, Sylven, who scored the tying goal – not on a breakaway – with three minutes to go. “Garth (Geddes) drove wide and I cut to the middle of the net, he threw the puck on my stick and it went in,” said Sylven, whose two-year Lakers career ended with the overtime winner and the national championship. After a year in the Maritimes, Sylven returned home to Calgary, playing two years and winning an Alberta Colleges championship with Mt. Royal, then two more years at the University of Calgary. Married to Jennifer with one son, Jack, seven (who Cam coaches), Sylven plays hockey three times a week and keeps in touch with several of his Lakers’ teammates. “I’m in Duane’s (Dennis’s) hockey pool,” laughed Sylven, still a follower of Vernon junior hockey, thanks to newspaper scores, and guys he plays with whose kids play in places like Nanaimo and Penticton, telling him how tough Vernon is every year. “It’s quite a tradition they have,” he said. “I have such fond, amazing memories of Vernon. The billeting system, Mel Lis and his ownership was second to none. I look back on that 1990 team and the thing that sticks out is, everybody put their differences aside and we really gelled. “Everybody was like brothers.”

It would be easy to blame Vernon School District trustees for the local crisis in education. After all, it it was the board that raised its hands to eliminate 25 full-time equivalent jobs, with teachers taking the biggest hit, as a way of addressing a $2.1 million shortfall. As a result of the trustees’ decision, some programs could be eliminated entirely. However, such a response would be simplistic and not acknowledge the reality that our elected trustees are pawns. They do the dirty work and hand out the pink slips, but it is the Ministry of Education that has complete control over the purse strings. Yes enrolment continues to decline, but provincial funding has not kept up with the actual cost of doing business and it’s that mismanagement that’s to blame. The only other option trustees had was to break ministry rules and hand in a deficit budget that reflected the district’s financial needs. But that would have likely led to all of them being fired, and the ministry appointing its own hatchet man. Beyond sending a message, nothing would have changed. The cuts would still proceed, and local involvement in the process would disappear. Sympathy, if anything, should be directed towards our trustees. They are committed to our students and community, but they have been forced into a situation not of their making. They understand the challenges these unfortunate cuts will create for district staff and children. If the blame is to be directed anywhere, it’s towards the provincial government, and MLA Eric Foster needs to hear that loud and clear from the public.

Water message misses mark

"

They just aren't using that water elsewhere." Al Cotsworth in regards to why public pools will stay full of water while private ones remain empty. The city has committed to reducing irrigation so the water they were going to use can go into the pools. Seems like a good idea, how about extending that deal to everyone? We all have mandated water meters, tell us how much we get to use per person and let us decide where it goes. I must say that I really have taken exception to the totalitarian mentality of the 'Water Authority.' I don't mind reducing water usage; in fact I think it's the right thing to do even when the lakes are full. I do not, however, like being threatened. Spy planes...really?

WATER WOES Water problems affect half of humanity: Approximately 1.1 billion people in developing countries have inadequate access to water. Lack of clean water kills someone every eight seconds, every minute of every day of the year. Lack of clean water kills more people in the world than HIV/Aids, diabetes, and cancer combined. There are over five million deaths every year due to water borne diseases. Most are small children who are struck by virulent but preventable diarrheal diseases. The above numbers do not include mortality and morbidity due to water-related insect vector such as malaria, dengue and onchocercias. Nor does it include the more than six million cases of blindness or severe complications due to the water-borne parasite trachoma. Many millions of women spend up to 10 hours a day collecting water. To these human costs can be added the massive economic waste associated with water and sanitation deficit. Many Third World countries lose about five per cent of GDP due to water and sanitation issues. Canada uses more water per capita than any other country except the United States. We Canadians use twice as much as the average Frenchmen, three times as much as

Either there is a crisis and everyone needs to respond, or there isn't. The public pools and parks should be the first places to dry up – a signpost that we are serious about saving water.

the average German, four times the Swedes and eight times the Danes. Given the above statistics, I personally find it very difficult to weep tears of sympathy for those unfortunates who are unable to fill their swimming pools, or who have to cut their golf course watering by 20 per cent. One has to wonder about priorities. Michael Banfield HST OK Wake up people. Don’t let Mr. Vander Zalm and Ms. James talk you into doing something stupid (like signing the HST Petition). David Bond, retired chief economist with the HSBC Bank, in his article on the editorial page of a daily paper, explained the facts quite accurately and succinctly. The government needs the additional revenue, unless you want even greater cuts to services like medical care and education, and a consumption tax such as the HST distributes the burden more equitably than Income Tax. Although, as Mr. Bond points out in his article “..even the premier has not yet admitted that taxes will have to increase or there will be more massive across-theboard expenditure reductions.” Also, if we pass up on the more than $1.5 billion, offered by the federal government for implemen-

tation of the HST, (which the BC government also needs), where do you think it will come from? Do I have to tell you? From you and me, the taxpayer. Robert Beesley MLA RESPONDS I am writing in response to the concerns of all of those who wrote letters to me regarding the code purple situation at Vernon Jubilee Hospital after the article was released in The Morning Star on Feb. 21 by Pat Black. The comment regarding the number of care beds is incorrect. Under the NDP in the 1990s, there were 181 acute care beds. When the NDP left in 2001 the total number of acute beds was 140; they cut the number of beds by 23 per cent in the 1990s. There is approximately the same number of beds today as there was in 2001; however, in addition, the province is building two new floors for future in-patient beds as part of the $180 million expansion project now underway. The 181,500 square-foot tower will provide improved patient access to care for a growing population. The coordination of care for patients will be improved through the integration of outpatient and day-care services. It will also include a new, expanded and modernized emergency department, new oper-

WAGE HIKE NEEDED It's a great disappointment/poor excuse not to increase minimum wage, it's been long overdue and greatly needed. Many jobs pay min. wage that do not provide tips, that are not in the service sector. It's misleading to say that many employers pay more then required by law when many jobs provide low wages, insufficient hours and no benefits. Many jobs only hire on part-time hours since they are given allowable hours that are divided among the staff or are over staffed. Making eight dollars an hour for 40-hour weeks or less doesn't provide proper living funds, when the cost of living expenses is on the rise. There are many jobs that pay min. wage, it's a fact provided by the BC Federation of Labor. Retailers do not only hire the youth, but a variety of age groups. It's an excuse to

Airport project hits turbulence RICHARD ROLKE

Duelling bureaucracy is holding up a development at the Vernon Airport. B.C.’s Ministry of Environment wants trees along Vernon Creek as part of a hangar/residence project, but the federal Transport Canada is opposed to vegetation being planted at the airport. “We’re being asked to plant trees and shrubs and that will conflict with aviation safety,” said John Tigchelaar, president of the city-owned Captain Kim Flick Bailey Way Corporation, which is overseeing the development. A biologist suggested trees that could grow to

120-feet in height. Not only would that impact the airspace of planes, it would create wildlife habitat. “We don’t want any tall trees that could increase birds or animals at the airport,” said Tigchelaar. “We want to do something but we want to err on the side of safety.” The corporation has been trying to resolve the issue for a year, and that has led to delays when it comes to construction of the project. “We’re behind. We hope to be turning dirt this year but it all depends on this,” he said of landscaping. It’s hoped that a meeting will be held with the Ministry of Environment soon. We believe there is a medium ground that can be reached,” said Kim Flick, the city’s manager of planning and building services. The corporation wants to proceed with 10 residential units and hangars that would then be sold.

Winfield gas stations targeted by thieves Morning Star Staff

RCMP are investigating two break-ins at Lake Country businesses Thursday. At about 5 a.m., police received a report of a break and enter in progress at the Gas Depot on Highway 97 in Winfield. “An employee was in the wash bay area when he observed three males carrying the store safe to a grey Jeep Cherokee, which was parked near the front,” said Sgt.Rick McIsaac. “The employee yelled at the males who finished putting the safe in the Cherokee, before driving out of the parking lot, and were last seen heading westerly on Glenmore Road.” The investigation indicates the suspects broke into the main store area through the front door, before removing the safe as well as breaking into an ATM machine. A short time later, police were called to the Lake Country Shell on Highway 97. It was determined that a similar offence to the one at Gas Depot had occurred there. “Once again, the culprits gained entry through the front door of the business and removed the safe from the store,” said McIssac. “It is believed that the same persons are responsible for both instances, and that the same vehicle was used.” The suspects are described as approximately five-foot-10, 170 pounds and wearing heavy jackets or sweaters. The vehicle used was a 1994 grey or silver Jeep Cherokee, which was displaying Alberta licence

plate RBA-239 at the time. But McIsaac says it’s been subsequently learned that this plate had been recently stolen from a residence in Lake Country. Anyone with any information on these crimes is asked to call the Lake Country RCMP at 250-7662288 or Crime Stoppers.

Public prefer choices for gravestones BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

People in Coldstream will continue to have a choice at the cemetery when it comes to honouring loved ones who have passed away. Council had been considering amending a bylaw to ban upright grave markers in the cemetery’s new section because of the extra maintenance costs associated with them. But after collect-

ing feedback from the public over a two-week period, council opted to leave the choice up to individuals. “Obviously, this is important to families and those that use the cemetery,” noted Coun. Doug Dirk. “The benefit to maintenance (from flat markers) isn’t significant that we would change how we deal with the new section (of the cemetery).” Mayor Jim Garlick

explained the history of the issue, pointing out a land exchange gave the previous term’s council the option to expand the cemetery which they did. The proposed amendment would have banned upright markers in the new part of the cemetery, reducing maintenance costs currently subsidized with tax dollars. He also said several deceased members of his family are interred

Hospice hike set for Sunday Morning Star Staff

Join the North Okanagan Hospice Society Sunday morning at Polson Park. The society will hold the Hike for Hospice, which kicks off National Palliative Care Week. “Hike in memory of a loved one and support hospice palliative care in the North Okanagan,” said Tracy Austin, event co-ordinator. Teams from businesses, corporations, friends and families are gathering five or more people to join together in support of hospice. “For every one person admitted to Hospice House, five more lives are positively affected,” said Austin. “We encourage you to meet or beat those teams around you.” Prizes will be awarded to the top team and individual fundraisers, while there will also be entertainment, a barbeque sponsored by the Armstrong Lions Club and the Kalamalka

Caring Klowns. Funds from a new online memorial garden will also go towards Hike proceeds. Visit www.nohs.ca and purchase a flower online in memory of a loved one and support palliative care. Printed registration and pledge

forms are available at Hospice House, Nolan’s Pharmasave, Sun FM, VantageOne Credit Union, Wayside Printers, Protocol Technologies or online at nohs.ca. Registration begins at 9:15 a.m., with the hike starting at 10 a.m.

Westside OCP changes on tap RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The North Westside Road area is trying to keep up with future development. The Central Okanagan Regional District board has given first reading to proposed revisions to the official community plan for the area on the west side of Okanagan Lake. “It’s heading in the right direction,” said director Jim Edgson. “We had to go through all of this because there’s been a fair bit of development pressure and we have to make sure the environmental considerations are brought up to date.” The land use document includes new sensitive terrestrial, hillside and wildfire environmental development permit guidelines and ensures existing aquatic development permit guidelines are consistent with other official community plans in the regional district. The next step is for CORD staff to complete a greenhouse gas emission strategy and receive feedback from various government agencies. After that, there will be a public hearing scheduled.

“With every step we will get input,” said Edgson. This is the first major overhaul of the OCP since 1999, and Edgson says it should be done every five years to ensure community needs are being met. He also points out that even once the OCP is finalized, there is nothing stopping amendments from occurring. “They are very much living documents,” he said. “If someone requests a variance and it’s approved, we are changing the bylaw.” It’s anticipated the CORD board could adopt the new official community plan by June or July.

Douglas fir, spruce and pine trees will be up for grabs at Coldstream municipal hall Saturday. Mayor Jim Garlick is trying to unload about 2,000 trees left over from Earth Day festivities and is allowing anyone who wants to plant some trees to come and take as many as they’d like. “I’ll start early in the morning near the municipal hall and fire hall,” said Garlick. The honour system will be in place with the public trusted to come and help themselves to the free seedlings. There were about 4,000 trees in total that remained after Earth Day and Garlick gave half of them to Lavington for folks there to plant.

The seedlings were grown at the Ministry of Forests research station in Vernon and donated by researcher Mike Carlson.

Bird is the word at the Allan Brooks Nature Centre these days as staff are thrilled to introduce a birds of prey exhibit that shows guests some of the best winged hunters in existence. The exhibit opens Saturday and visitors will be able to see stuffed specimens including the snowy owl, red-tailed hawk, peregrine falcon and several examples of feathered predators observed in the Okanagan. Education co-ordinator Elizabeth Brown says the new exhibit is appropriate for the centre since many types of birds of prey, also called raptors, are common in the area. “The Okanagan is famous for birds of prey,” said Brown. “And the Okanagan is the most endangered raptor habitat in Canada.” Centre manager Mary Jong hopes the exhibit helps people comprehend the reach of human activity. “We want people to learn about the environment and be more aware that what they do impacts the environment,” said Jong. Brown says the centre is hoping to bring in lots of school groups this year. As an accredited teacher, she is able to create programs for students from kindergarten to Grade 7. From their perch high above the Commonage, Allan Brooks’ staff have a view of Kalamalka Lake, Okanagan Lake, Swan Lake and everything in between. It offers a chance to see birds of prey in the wild too. “We do (see them) all the time,” said Jong. “Redtailed hawks, ospreys, eagles, harriers — they hunt a lot here.”

The expansive fields below the centre are prime feeding areas for birds as they’re home to mice, voles and other small rodents. Jong says the family of marmots that live near the centre have to be wary as well because the birds like to scoop up their vulnerable young newborns. The centre is also celebrating its 10th anniversary this year and tree seedlings will be handed out to the first 100 visitors. Besides the birds of prey exhibit, guests may want to trek Sky Hunters’ Trail and see Marmot City. A non-profit group, Allan Brooks Nature Centre relies on donations to continue providing exhibits for families and programs for school visits. It will have a garage sale at the end of May, and if you have items you wish to donate, phone 250-260-4227 or e-mail info@abnc.ca.

Annual Fish-Out geared towards local youth BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

Come cast a line and see if a fish rises to the bait. That’s what the Kalamalka Fly Fishers Club is hoping youngsters will do Saturday and Sunday during the Kids Fish-Out at the Polson Park pond. The pond, near the water park, will be stocked with 1,000 rainbow trout from the Summerland Trout Hatchery, so the odds of landing a fish are good. The event is meant for kids aged four to 14 to perhaps catch a fish for the first time. “It’s actually to introduce kids to fishing in general,” said club member and event organizer Wayne Vicic. Fishing rods will be provided if participants don’t have their own. Vicic and other club members will have cleaned debris from the pond that accumulated over the winter. Then, three partitions will be installed to divide the pond up. “The chances (of catching a fish) are equal throughout the pond,” said Vicic, adding the trout being added are catchable size at around 500 to 600 grams. Participants will be allowed to keep two fish per day. It’s the ninth annual Fish-Out put on by the club, and hot dogs and refreshments will be on sale. “I think the members have as much fun as the

kids do,” said Vicic. “We want this to be a

family thing.” Kids are encour-

aged to bring a fishing rod, worms and barb-

less hooks. Fishing will be from 9 a.m. to

4 p.m. both days and those under 12 must

Snakes set to defend RBC title GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Whether they are staying at the ultraluxurious Westin Bear Mountain Resort in Victoria, or a Super 8 on the Manitoba Prairies, the goal remains the same for the Vernon Vipers. Sure, they were probably spoiled a bit by the swanky surroundings at the Royal Bank Cup last May on Vancouver Island, but the Snakes were full credit for going undefeated at 6-0 to earn a record-setting fifth national Junior A hockey championship. The Vipers are now ‘in the mix for six’ as they launch their RBC title defence Saturday night (5 p.m. PT) against the host Dauphin Kings. Vernon is looking to become the first team to repeat as national champions since the Vernon Lakers did it in 1990 and ‘91. “Obviously last year the room was pretty nice, and it’s Victoria in May, which is pretty nice, but it doesn’t matter whether we’re going to Dauphin, Manitoba, or Victoria, we’re there for one thing and that’s to win the tournament,” said Vipers’ assistant coach Jason Williamson. “We want them to enjoy every part of this. There’s only five teams in all of Canada left playing. Being able to get this far we have to make sure we’re focussed on the task at hand, and make sure that each and every game we bring our best effort.” Vernon is the only returning team in the five-team tournament. The other teams include the Fred Page Cup champion Brockville Braves (eastern), AVANET Cup runners-up La Ronge Ice Wolves (western), and Dudley Hewitt Cup champion Oakville Blades (central). As the highest remaining seed out of 131 Canadian Junior Hockey League clubs, the No. 2 Vipers know they will be the team to beat. As second-year

GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR

Rookie netminder Blake Voth comes cross-crease to deny veteran forward David Robinson from in close during the Vernon Vipers' practice Wednesday afternoon at Priest Valley Arena. The team leaves this morning for the Royal Bank Cup Championship, starting Saturday in Dauphin, Man. forward Sahir Gill points out, that’s nothing new. “Everyone’s going to be gunning for us, just like it was all year. I guess you amplify the stage a bit more with it being the RBC, but we’ve just got to bring our game and we’ll be fine,” said Gill, a Terrace product who rejoined the club midway through the season after a stint with the USHL Chicago Steel. Gill, who turned 18 last month, is one of 13 returning RBC veterans, and he believes they have been able to draw on that experience. “We don’t get as nervous. If things start running around, we can settle it down a bit more. That’s where the experience comes

in to help,” said Gill, whose line of Connor and Kellen Jones is 1-2-3 in Vernon playoff scoring. “You can’t take things for granted, especially now that things are in a Game 7 situation. Either you’re in, or you’re out. There’s round-robin play, but you know you’re trying to get that No. 1 seed so every game is do or die pretty much.” Added Williamson: “It’s (experience) pretty important with most of our guys knowing what to expect, maybe being a little more business like right away when we get there.” A look at individual scoring statistics at last year’s nationals illustrates Vernon’s ability to get balanced scoring. That lineup

featured nine point-a-game players, with each regular posting at least two points in six games. Mike Collins led tournament scoring with four goals and six assists. “If you look at tournament scoring last year... anyone can lead the charge offensively, so it makes it difficult for other teams to line match,” said Gill. “Other teams haven’t seen us play before, so it gives us that advantage where we can roll four lines of the same type of hockey.” For Viper rookie Dylan Walchuk, the road to the RBC has been a thrill ride, albeit an exhausting one. The 18-year-old McBride native, who rooms with linemate Jonathan Milhouse, helped the Nelson Leafs win a Kootenay International Junior Hockey League title last season, but the 82 games he has played with Vernon go beyond that. “It’s definitely a lot longer, but I’m enjoying it,” said Walchuk, who skated in the CJHL Prospects Game in Winkler, Man. last December. “Everyone has come together as a team this playoffs, and we’re working really hard and doing everything we have to do to succeed.” All 10 round-robin games, along with both semifinals on Saturday, May 8, will be available via webcast through FASTHockey at hockeycanada.fasthockey.com. All games are available on a pay-per-view basis for $6.99 each. SNAKE BITES: Brockville Braves owner/ coach/GM Todd Gill is a former NHL defenceman, playing with seven clubs over a 17-year career, mainly with the Toronto Maple Leafs in the late ‘80s and early ‘90s... The KIJHL North Okanagan Knights have announced the appointment of Bill Burr as the club’s new president. He replaces Bill Greene, who served as president in the Knights’ expansion season.

Talent-laden Kings entertain Vipers in Royal Bank Cup opener DOUG ZYWINA Dauphin Herald

DAUPHIN, MAN. – As hosts of the Royal Bank Cup, the Dauphin Kings have been able to assemble some of the best Junior A hockey talent in North America. While they are obviously a highly skilled unit, Kings’ head coach Marlin Murray cites three keys to the team’s success – work ethic, attention to detail and structure. “For us to have a real skilled hockey team with individuals who are real good Shane Luke players, sometimes their ice times could

be cut and sometimes they have to adapt to another role,” said Murray, citing the team’s checking line of Mitch Czibere, Cody Esposito and Troy Hunter as an example. All three would likely earn top-line minutes on another team. “But they’re happy to be on our checking line,” said Murray. “They know their role and they’re hard to play against. They shut down the opposition’s line while they still put the puck in the net, as well.” Murray says the line matching throughout the playoffs has also been a key to the team’s success. “Our attention to detail with matching lines was excellent. Once their match up comes off the ice, our players come off, as well. They change and they buy into that,”

he said. “And the last thing would be our team chemistry and the way we like each other, the way we stick up for each other and the way we go to bat for each other. It’s a real likable group. There’s not one or two cliques in that room. It’s 22 individuals with one common cause. And that common cause is to come to the rink every day, work your butts off and we’ll be successful because our skill level will take over.” The Kings, who open the RBC against the defending champion Vernon Vipers Saturday night, have one goal in mind.

Cats up for defence KEVIN MITCHELL Morning Star Staff

Their leading scorer and captain is in Manitoba with the defending Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey champion Vernon Vipers. The Re/Max Tigers, however, appear to have enough depth to win while waiting for Robbie Short’s return to their junior B lacrosse den. Vernon lost just three players – Steven Clark, Pat Quigley and Jordan Jarvis – from last year’s provincial silver medalist roster. The Tigers went 3-1 in the round-robin before falling 9-5 to the Port Moody Panthers in the gold-medal game in Esquimalt. Fifth-year monster-hitter and alternate captain Braidy Webb was dripping with sweat after another high-tempo Tiger practice Tuesday night at Civic Arena. He likes the make-up of this year’s team. “It’s looking good,” said Webb, an apprentice electrician. “We got a lot of new guys so we’re gonna work together. Defence is key this year. We still got our strong goalie (MVP Josh Phillips) from last year. We got some new guys on offence and the powerplay’s been looking good so far. We just gotta stay out of the penalty box and we have a good team. Everybody’s dedicated this year. We’re focused.” The Tigers battle the Armstrong Shamrocks Saturday night at Wesbild Centre in their Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League home opener. Vernon went 8-4-2 and finished third a year ago, one point out of first. They swept the Rutland Raiders and South Okanagan Flames before taking out the Kamloops Venom in a thrilling five-game championship series. “Every season’s a new season,” said Webb,

one of the league’s toughest dudes. “You gotta start from square one again. We did great last year, but it’s a whole new season and every team gets better.” Co-coaches Rich Zecchel and Bryan Klein run pro-like practices with loads of running. A 24-man roster creates healthy competition for floor time. “We really got a lot of guys,” added Webb, named the Tigers’ Unsung Hero last season. “Anybody could be sitting. We gotta be focused, you gotta be dedicated. There’s no screwing around. It takes something to play on this team. We did do really good last year so we’re not backing down at all. We have to be even more focused than we were last year.” Blake Lewis, a fifth-year vet who won the Best Defensive Player with the Cats in 2009, figures the provincial tournament gig was a worthy education in a few ways. “I think it taught us how to become a better team and what it means. Being a better team will take you to the next level, having that chemistry. It’s more than just a bunch of skilled players. We came together as one down the stretch and it paid off.” The Tigers, who won back-to-back league titles eight years ago, are building a Viper-like legacy where class and honour are associated with their jersey. “A guy like Robbie, playing for the Vipers, it’s nice to have him on the team because he brings that competitive aspect. The Tigers is that second level for him and we’re building up.” As an alternate captain, Lewis says he will ensure guys know their roles and are held accountable. He says the Tigers will be prepared for a track meet any night of the week. “I think our platoon system really helps,” said Lewis, a third-year business

But, obviously, we can’t get sidetracked. “Our work ethic is going to have to be key. Our structured systems is going to have to be key in what we want to do on a day-to-day basis. And if we get those two ingredients, I think our skill level will take over at some point.” The Kings ran away with the Manitoba league title this season finishing at 50-11-1-

Outlaws smoke Blazers Morning Star Staff

The Little Tex Outlaws shut down the Vernon Blazers 6-0 in North Okanagan Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soccer Association Competitive Division action Tuesday night at Marshall Field #1. The Outlawsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defence, led by Jordan Mercer, shut down the Blazersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offence. Little Tex used the Blazersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; keeper for shooting practice with Kayla Palfrey scoring five goals and Jen Knopf scoring off a beautiful shot outside the 18-yard line. The whole team showed good hustle to the ball and some nice passing. Host Salmon Arm United grounded the Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers 3-0 in other Competitive play. Sue Nakazawa scored in a fairly even first half, while Sue Doray and Natalie Smith added late second-half goals. There were no results turned in from the Vernon Venom-NET Celtics game. In Masters play, the North Okanagan Impact brushed back the North Okanagan United 2-1 at Marshall #4. The Impact broke through and scored the first goal of the game when Wendy Ellis converted on a scramble with her never-give-up attitude. NOU responded late in the second half on a cross from Char McNaught to Teresa Collins, who blasted at the net only to be stymied by an Impact player. Kim Cooper grabbed the rebound and one-timed a high loft into the net above the Impact keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s head.

WATER HAULING NEED WATER? WE DELIVER!

Ellis recorded the winner on a rocket from just inside the 18-yard box. Impact keeper Lisa Wright made a handful of one-on-one challenges and exceptional dives. Edeen Ramsey and Denise Connor showed splendid versatility in several positions in a tough game. There was end-to-end play with two wellmatched teams â&#x20AC;&#x201C; age- and skill-wise. Keeper Shelley Henry was stellar for NOU, who sorely missed injured veterans Shelly Johnston and Wendy Stevens. United received great play from Carla Gibson with constant attacks at the net creating several scoring opportunites. The Chick Kickers gonged Goplenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Drillers 3-1 at Marshall #3. The Chicks took the lead in the second minute with a sweet goal by Jen Sorochuk, and extended their lead when a random cross was picked up by Chick Kickersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; newest recruit, Kelly Challen, who wove her way through the defence and placed a shot past the hands of the Drillersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; keeper. The Drillers pulled to within a goal of the Chick Kickers, who continued to press hard on the Drillersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defensive line. Midway through the second half, the Chicks again succeeded in breaking through the Drillersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense, with a pass by Sorochuk to Jenny Garnett, who lobbed the ball past the Drillersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; keeper to regain a two-goal lead. There was no score reported from the Tillicum Controllers-Salmon Arm Setters Pub game.

in round seven, to the Portland Winter Hawks. Mackenzie Ferner of the Vernon Tier 1 Bantams, the son of Viper head coach Mark Ferner, was chosen in round eight, 162nd overall, by the Kamloops Blazers, his former hometown. The Prince George Cougars selected Alex Forsberg of Waldheim, Sask. with the first overall pick. Forsberg, a 5-foot9, 170-pound centre,

played for Beardyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Blackhawks of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA League, finishing tied for third in league scoring with 26 goals for 72 points in 44 games. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really exciting to be picked first by the Cougars,â&#x20AC;? said Forsberg. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great to be joining my brother (Jesse) in Prince George. Being the first pick happens to only one player every year and to be one of those players is really special.â&#x20AC;?

WEEKLY PRIZE DRAW!

Vernon's Curtis Lazar will spend the weekend checking out the Edmonton Oil Kings' headquarters. Lazar, 15, was the second overall selection in the 2010 Western Hockey League Bantam Draft Thursday morning at the Fantasyland Hotel in Edmonton. The high-scoring forward, who played for Pursuit of Excellence in Kelowna last season, flies to Alberta tonight. "It's indescribable," the 5-foot-10, 156-pound Lazar told The Morning Star. "I was hanging out at the rink (Winfield) before practice and we checked out the draft on Cole Sanford's iPod. "Edmonton was the place I wanted to go because it's a young franchise, they have a new coach coming in and they're going in the right direction. They play at Rexall Place so it will be a bonus seeing the Oilers around." Sanford, who was Lazar's linemate with POE, was taken in the sixth round, 117th overall, by the Medicine Hat Tigers. "Some guys told me I was going to go earlier, but I think I fell because of my size," said Sanford, who is listed at 5-foot-5, 123 pounds. "I'm happy to get picked by Medicine Hat. It didn't matter to me which team took me." Dylan Bowen of Lumby, a 5-foot-9, 141pound defenceman with POE, went 141st,

Ross leads Nitros Morning Star Staff

The Davidson & Co. Dynamite brushed off Concept Physio 2-1 in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League action Wednesday night at Marshall Field #3. In a slow first half where both teams really seemed to be working on some form of cohesion, Davidson ageless striker Robert Ross scored on a one-timer to beat Physio keeper Rob Spraggs. Midway through the second half, Robert Ross was again able to touch a ball into the net to make it a 2-0 game. Concept Physio’s Alex MacDougall broke through a scrambling Dynamite defence and beat keeper Ean Ross with a low shot in the late going. In other play, the Revelstoke Stallions clipped Turk-Key Controls 2-1 at Marshall #4. In a lacklustre opening 20 minutes, Turn-Key fell behind 2-0 early on communication miscues inside the 18-yard area. Turn-Key had an advantage in play throughout the game but were unable to capitalize until Taylor Horsting stripped a Revelstoke defender late in the second half and fed Chris Jahnig, who converted Revelstoke was able to maintain the Turn-Key pressure late in the half and avoid giving up a late equalizer. Corey Wallis and Brent Poulsen each scored twice as the North Enderby Timber grounded Monashee Surveying 6-0 at Marshall #2. Jon Orton and Brodie Couch completed the NET offence in support of Danny Stein. Kal Sports Bar had the bye, and face Nation of Domination Eagles Homes next Wednesday.

Wiens’ cycle paces Devils Morning Star Staff

Iva Wiens hit for the cycle in five at bats as the Dave’s Mobile Mechanic Devils bounced the Blazers 20-5 in Vernon Women’s Slo-Pitch League season opening play at Kin Park. Wiens stroked a pair of singles, a double, triple and home run to spark the Devils. The Devils also buried the Ted Luszcz Bulldozers 18-3 game. Pitcher Krista Horton led the Devils’ defence. The Devils fired up their game with a 10-run, third inning. Rickie Leveille, Nancy Lafreniere and Leanne Wickenheiser each went 3-for-4. The Whitehouse Mortgage Gators brushed back the stubborn Kal Hotel Naked Grapes 13-8 with Jody McCall and Pam Betton each collecting five hits. The Naked Grapes used a seven-run, third inning to make things interesting. The Kal Hotel broke open a close game with a 13-run, third inning and grounded the shorthanded Blazers 22-3. McCall supplied five hits, including a dinger, while Betton – just back from a grueling hike of the Grand Canyon – pitched a gem and helped her cause by going 5-for-5. Shelley Ouellette was 4-for-4 with a home run and Paula Bifano also went 4-for-4. Sherie Peter rapped a triple and three other hits while Lisa Payne went 3-for-4.

The Vernon Volume placed fourth in the 51-team B.C. U14 Tier 1 Girls Club Volleyball Championships in Kelowna. Coached by Keith Becker and Chris August, the Volume lost 2-0 (27-25, 25-22) to Club Forca of Surrey. Vernon got tough serving and good setting from Kim Nadeau, and solid passing and hitting from Cassidy Lidstone. The No. 1 ranked Club Gecko of Vancouver stopped the Volume 2-0 (27-25, 25-22) in the semis. The Volume lost two straight to the No. 4 Coquitlam Ducks Green 23-25 before rebounding to ice the Fraser Valley Black 2-0 (25-18, 25-20). Megan Squair supplied solid serving and Vicki Schley flashed some stellar digging and passing from the power position. Vernon ended pool play by sweeping the BCO Red of North Vancouver 2-0 (25-20, 25-21), then earned a bye into the Tier 1 top-eight quarterfinals Sunday morning, where they brushed back White Rock 2-1 (25-23, 18-25, 15-12), getting two big kills from middle Karley Fugel and some clutch passing from powers Cassy and Alex Lukey in set one. White Rock built up a 9-3 lead in the middle set before Avery Bridge entered the game and ignited a nice comeback. The Vernon Tornadoes U14 boys team placed seventh at the 19-team provincials in Surrey. Coached by Dan Currie and Rod Dubland, the Tornadoes played three playoff games Saturday, and advanced to the A division. In Sunday action, the Tornadoes lost 2-0 (28-26, 25-21) to Kelowna #1 before bowing 2-0 (26-24, 25-15) to the Fraser Valley VC. The Tornadoes then brushed off the Victoria Chargers 2-1 (24-26, 25-18,15-13).

Chiara Costa watches the scene in front of her intently. Placing her camera to her eye, she captures the graceful movements of a dancer: the precise position of the hands, the muscular definition of the legs, the rough-hewn soles of their slippers, and the glint of the eyes. A former ballet dancer, Costa, 34, can no longer dance due to a leg injury, but she still lives vicariously through those who do â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; by painting. The Brazilian-born artist has become known throughout the Okanagan for her true-to-life figurative portraits of dancers, as well as others whose face and features capture her attention. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a deep connection, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My painting is where my mind lives. My artwork is realist, but when you take a good look you see more than reality,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I take my work from real life, mostly females living out a fantasy life whether as ballerinas, or something else.â&#x20AC;? Costa opens her new exhibition, Passionate Performers, tonight in lieu with Ballet Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presentation of its new show, Master Play, in the Kelowna Community Theatre. The two-month long exhibit, in the theatre lobby, features 15 paintings and drawings that feature mostly female performers, as well as three portraits of Costaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cousin, who died in an accident last August in Brazil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am dedicating the show to her,â&#x20AC;? said the artist who spent two years photographing, researching and painting performers from Vernon (mostly young athletes from the Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics Club) as well as Kelowna and Vancouver. Rather than showing perfectly polished dancers in pink tutus and brand new slippers, Costa says she is more fascinated with the visceral image of a dancer or performer â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; those who sweat rather than just perspire. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I enjoy painting large and amplifying details making my artwork feel more intimate,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the same reason I feel it matters to also portray the subjects in stu-

Brazilian-born artist Chiara Costa shows some of the paintings she has done of Okanagan rhythmic gymnasts in her Silver Star studio. Costaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance-driven portraits are on exhibition in the Kelowna Community Theatre for the month of May and June, with an opening reception tonight. dio with their practice suits and wornout slippers. The kind of performing art I am interested in usually takes hard work and discipline more than just beauty and grace. Performers take pride in that.â&#x20AC;? A former model, Costa grew up in the wind-swept town of Valadares (Iron Valley) in southeastern Brazil, known for its paragliding (the town was the site of the Brazilian paragliding world cup last year.) Growing up in an artistic family â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Costaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father is a musician, and her mother is an English teacher who initially taught her daughter how to paint â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Costa met her future husband, Mike Nelson, when he visited Valadares to sail the wind currents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was there for two weeks, and then came back to see me. He stayed for four months, and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring his paraglider that time,â&#x20AC;? said Costa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was four years ago.â&#x20AC;? A Salmon Arm native and for-

cities in Brazil, and frozen food and McDonaldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s are very expensive in Brazil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love Canada and have many good things to say about it: the main one is safety.â&#x20AC;? After getting used to her surroundings, Costa soon got to work painting. Nelson also got to work converting the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8,000 square-foot warehouse on Silver Star into a modern residence complete with an artistâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My husband has always been supportive. He loves art and helps me with my framing. When I first showed him my portraits, he was blown away,â&#x20AC;? said Costa, who also started to make numerous connections through local arts organizations. She became a volunteer board member with the Vernon Public Art Gallery, joined the Okanagan Artists League (now the Okanagan Artists of Canada) and started instructing at the Vernon Community Arts

The two reunited in Oct., 2007, when Costa arrived in Vernon to start her new life. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It took me a while to adapt,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For example, Walmart and other big box stores are only in big

Centre. She has also participated in group shows, and has been accepted into the Okanaganâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest juried art show, the Lake Country ArtWalk, for two years running. It was at ArtWalk where Costa made a connection to join Artscape, a program offered by the Arts Council of the Central Okanagan that gives emerging artists space to display their artwork. In February, she showed her portraits at the Kelowna Mission library in the Capital News Centre, and is now gearing for this current show in the Kelowna Community Theatre. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I came here with a plan in mind. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a go-getter and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit still,â&#x20AC;? she smiled. Besides being a celebration of performance, the theatre show is a fundraiser, entitled Face Africa - 200 bids for Uganda, to help Glenmore Elementary Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Governor General award winning music teacher Rhonda Draper and her two children with their humanitarian mission to Africa this summer. Costa is auctioning off three of her portraits of African children to help Draper on her quest with the Niteo organization to work with teachers and students in orphan schools as well as the Sanyu Babies Orphanage in Uganda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s essential for me to dedicate a part of my work to charity,â&#x20AC;? said Costa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I came to Canada, I saw so much advertising for World Vision. Most of the population of Brazil is African, and I wanted to do something to help.â&#x20AC;? Costa has donated three of her pieces towards Draperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cause. The highest bidder/donor will take home the large portrait, entitled Vulnerable, while the other two artworks, Mango and Dennis, will be raffled in a random draw. Visitors can learn more at tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s reception in the Kelowna Community Theatre, which features a wine and cheese tasting at 7 p.m., prior to Ballet Kelownaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s performance at 8 p.m. To watch videos of Costa in her art-making process or for more information, visit her website at www.alexisarts.com/CostaHomePage.htm.

The hunt is still on Morning Star Staff

The Enderby and District Arts Council (EDAC) continues to celebrate local art and artists with the Great Art Treasure Hunt. Participants have been hunting down local strategically placed treasures –– art objects, architecture or artists themselves –– around Enderby and area to kick off last month’s Arts and Culture Week in B.C. Sculptures, murals and artistic signs (marked by a bee hive) have appeared outside and inside local businesses and other establishments. The object is to answer as many questions as possible about the artistic treasures around the area, said EDAC secretary Alyson Witts. “This is a fun way to increase the curiosity of young people and get them and yourself involved in earning good prizes,” she said. “A whole family or a group of friends can share clues to compete.” Clue sheets can be picked up from the Enderby chamber of commerce, library, museum and other sites, or download one at enderbyartscouncil.

com (open the grants tab and click on the bee.) The hunt closes Thursday and ends with the Big Wind Up Event, a free concert at the Enderby Evangelical Chapel, May 14 at 7 p.m. “That’s when all the answers will be displayed and the prizes awarded to the entrants who have the most correct answers,” said Witts. For more information, contact the EDAC at 250-838-2274.

Met season concludes Saturday

It’s been quite the year of opera and on Saturday, The Met: Live in HD season concludes at Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas with Rossini’s Armida. The mythical story of a sorceress who enthralls men in her island prison, Armida has inspired operatic settings by a multitude of composers, including Gluck, Haydn, and Dvorák. Renée Fleming stars in the title role of Rossini’s version, opposite no fewer than six tenors. Tony Award winner Mary Zimmerman returns to direct this new production of a work she describes as “a buried treasure, a box of jewels.” The fanciful and magical tale, Zimmerman says, “has an epic, enchanted quality and a tremendous visual element.” Now in its fourth season, The Met: Live in HD series is transmitted live from New York’s Metropolitan Opera House via satellite in high definition into more than 90 Cineplex Entertainment theatres across the country. The transmission starts at Galaxy Cinemas in The Shops in Polson Park, Saturday at 10 a.m. General admission is $23.05, senior is $19.90, and a child is $13.60 at the box office or at www.cineplex.com/events.

Hear the Music has everyone listening Morning Star Staff

Since releasing his 10th CD, Light Up The Sky, in January, Vernon’s Jon Buller has hit the road, and crossed an ocean, to share his music and its inspiring message with others. Buller and his band just returned home from touring Turkey, and says he and his team are ready to show their appreciation to their hometown fans the best way they know how. Buller is about to host another rockin’ worship event, Hear the Music, Sunday at Vernon Alliance Church, where he serves as a worship pastor. Buller has hosted the free will and often sold-out concert numerous times since arriving in Vernon with his family from his native Winnipeg five years ago. Not only does this event promise to be another high energy evening of Christian rock, but an opportunity for Buller and his talented group of musicians to treat locals who continue to support their efforts. “What’s so important to me and the whole team is to say thank you to everyone who prayed for us and supported us,” said Buller. “We need people to know that, through their support, lives and hearts were changed.” In addition to sharing stories and images from their incredible trip, Buller

of enjoyment to pass on for years to come. On May 15 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., local ceramicist Lynda Doyle conducts a demonstration on clay slab and handbuilding techniques. Doyle has been playing with mud for more than 30 years.

It became a serious hobby in 1990 when she moved from Ontario to Medicine Hat, the clay mecca of Alberta. Doyle has continued to grow and learn over the years by taking numerous workshops and courses, and was an active member of the Medicine Hat Potters Association for more than 18 years. Her pieces include animal characters, figurines and functional work decorated with themes from nature. Now working out of her home studio in Vernon, Doyle says she finds pottery to be a great catharsis for dealing with life’s ups and downs. She also volunteers for the Creative Chaos Society. Both events are free. The VPAG is located at 3228 31st Ave. Call 250-545-3173 for more information.

David Bowie: A Reality Tour

A

t opposite ends of the rock spectrum are two fascinating changelings: Neil Young and David Bowie. It’s a drag, and a shame that the two musicians haven’t worked together as they’re both uncompromising and long-lasting rockers. That’s a notion that occurred while listening to the seemingly ageless David Bowie’s new live album A Reality Tour. There are co-writes with Iggy Pop and Brian Eno, but Young could find a place Dean Gordon-Smith within this comfortably alienated soundscape. This electric double disc recorded in Dublin in ‘03 is exciting not for the hits and star power, but for the many lesser-known songs presented live with Bowie’s great band, made up of decades-old vets and newer recording partners. But this isn’t a hits-driven album, and Bowie sounds like a man who steps over decades easily while singing his songs. He’s as vital as Ziggy Stardust or the Thin White Duke, and more potent because he’s summing them up. Bowie’s newest material can stand up to his own classics, and that’s the real secret of this album –– it’s not a revue or variety show. Bowie takes tangents that turn into exciting choices on the stage. A Reality Tour checks into many of these moments, and Bowie and his band’s vast and evolving catalogue are proof that rock and roll will never die.

SATURDAY, MAY 1 - ‘Grass Mountain Hobos’ This award winning East Coast Bluegrass band is on tour in Western Canada after playing the opening ceremonies at the 2010 Winter Olympics. Nominated for best bluegrass album of the year at the East Coast Music Awards.

PHOTO SUBMITTED

David Bowie brought his Reality tour to the Okanagan in April, 2004. Speaking of which, war horses like Rebel Rebel, Fame, and Under Pressure get slightly altered treatments from the restless Bowie and band, who give it all up to dynamics. Yeah, having great songs and a classic rock voice helps, but Bowie is visceral still. Some of the strange magic on Reality Tour lies in lesser-known tracks like the weird and nasty Sister Midnight and Be My Wife from Bowie’s Berlinera collaborations with Pop and Eno. They’re still heavyweights, as are newer songs New Killer Star, Reality and Bring Me the Disco King. Bowie’s material retains that urban futuristic edge that hints of different societies and technological sorrows (Ashes to Ashes, Heroes, The Man Who Sold the World) even if it was originally recorded 30 years ago. Hearing his music live gives it a surprising context –– it still sounds from the future –– and renews the original vision. It’s music that seems removed, but feels deeply connected, and demands the decibels that the stage provides. Bowie proves that age doesn’t matter, passion does.

WOW goes online in Lumby CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Lumby and area women have a new way to get in touch online with www.wowlumby.com. The WOW (Women of Wellness) website lets women do everything from find a ride, meet a walking buddy, share produce, barter or sell things, discuss health resources and to get information on community resources. The website grew out of a 2005 research project investigating women’s employability and health sponsored by the Coalition for Women’s Economic Advancement. The project, with principal investigator Dr. Colleen Reid had funding from Status of Women Canada, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research and other sources. The community researchers were Robin LeDrew, Irene Deleenheer, Jeannie Fox and Nina Westaway. They interviewed many local women about their work and family responsibilities and how that affected their health. One of the findings was that women would like more ways to communicate with others and that led to setting up the website. “We found that women are juggling paid work and unpaid work in the family, often to the detriment of their health. They felt that a huge part of women’s work is not recognized or valued and that it would help if they could connect more with each other,” said LeDrew. The website has now become a Whitevalley Community Resource project and LeDrew likes to think of it as an online quilting bee with women chatting and sharing everything from their own news to trading garden plants. “I see this as part of the initiative for communities to move towards more sustainable lifestyles where we are able to meet more of our needs locally,” said LeDrew, who added that she has seen a positive effect on her health from the project by meeting women to walk with regularly. Ileana Merritt, practicum student, is available to help with computer access Wednesdays from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Whitevalley Community Resource Centre. The information gathered by the Women’s Employability and Health Research Project in all areas of the province is now CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR being used in text books for university courses. For more information see www.wowlumby.com or call Ileana Merritt (left) practicum student at Whitevalley Community Resource Centre, and Robin LeDrew, project coordinator of WOW 250-547-8866 or come in to the centre at 2114 Shuswap Ave. (Women on Wellness) Lumby, check the new website which will help local women connect for information and networking.

I didn’t see him online as usual. After three days, I grew worried and contacted some mutual friends. A week later, he sent me an explosive, angry e-mail, blaming me for “destroying his life.” He listed some specific accusations that made little sense. I became so upset that I canceled some of our scheduled engagements. A few months later, James had two “mild” strokes, and I realized the change in his personality was undoubtedly the result of a previous stroke that had gone unrecognized. If anyone had known, he might have been medically helped and his personality saved. Meanwhile, his anger at me has never abated. I

Vernon student speaks on law Morning Star Staff

Vernon secondary school student Bianca Coad was among 45 B.C. students who took part in the annual Barry Sullivan Cup Public Speaking Contest in Vancouver April 8. Now in its 20th year, the contest is an annual event among B.C. high schools. The contest is traditionally held around the period of the Canadian Bar Association’s annual hosting of Law Day, which celebrates the signing of the Canadian constitution. This year, the contest drew a record 45 Grades 10-12 participants from all over the province. Each had to deliver a five-minute speech that pertained to

this year’s theme “Legal Representation: A Right or a Privilege?” The final competition was judged by The Honourable Mr. Justice Mark McEwan of the Supreme Court of British Columbia, The Honourable Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree of the Provincial Court of British Columbia, UBC Law Professor Elizabeth Edinger and Vancouver Sun columnist Peter McKnight. Law Day is a national event to celebrate the signing of Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Originated by the Canadian Bar Association, Law Day provides an opportunity for the profession to educate the public about the role that lawyers and the judi-

simple sentence. Are the words slurred? Can he or she repeat the sentence correctly? — TIME: If the person shows any of these symptoms, time is important. Call 911 or get to the hospital fast. Dear Annie: My husband’s older brother was married last year, and we have since discovered that his wife is a compulsive liar. My brother-in-law is oblivious, but it hurts us to see him being treated this way by a woman he loves. Should we tell him his wife is constantly lying to him, or should we just butt out and mind our own business? — Nebraska Dear Nebraska: If the lies are specific and damaging to his relationship with the family (e.g., she says

your husband stole her purse), you may correct the misimpression. If she is lying about how much money she spent on an outfit, that’s not your business. Pick your battles carefully, or you will lose all of them. Dear Annie: Perhaps “Life’s a Beach” might consider my surefire way to get rid of unwanted guests. After dinner, I put all the dishes on the floor so the dog can lick them clean. I then pick them up and put them directly into the cupboards. You will never see those guests again. — Lick ‘Em Clean Dear Lick: We sure hope you pull all those dishes out of the cupboards and wash them as soon as the guests leave. Yuck.

Rogers extends helping hand Morning Star Staff

A donation of flour is making things easier for some people in Haiti. Rogers Foods president Vic Bell approved the donation of flour with the first shipment arriving in the country in the summer of 2008, with the latest donation going to the earthquake victims. “It’s been pretty gratifying for us all and we’re proud to be part of a company that goes out of their way to help. It’s the culture of the company,” said John Apperloo, maintenance superintendent at the Rogers Foods Chilliwack plant, which worked with Heart to Heart Ministries of Abbotsford Vineyard Church, which was already working in Haiti. “I’m just one of the workers here and I was able to connect a few people. We’re pleased that we can do this.”

Increasing access to dental care All Canadians need access to timely, effective dental care,” states Dr, Don Friedlander, president of the Canadian Dental Association in an article that ran in The Globe and Mail in April 2009. Dental insurance and tax incentives help the majority of Canadians get good dental care, but there are many individuals and families in the lowest income brackets who need more assistance. In fact, in developed countries like Canada, 20 per cent of the population has approximately 80 per cent of the cavities. Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is an aggressive form of cavity that occurs

MIDDLE EASTERN AND CANADIAN CUISINE

in children before age five. Many children with severe ECC end up being treated under general anesthetic in hospital settings, which is expensive for the medical system and for parents. The provincial Healthy Kids Dental Program used to cover low-income children for $700 of dental care per year but was recently changed so that a child is covered up to $1,400 over a two-year period, as the cost of treatment for severe Early Childhood Cavities can be as much as double that amount. In my 18 years as a Community Dental

Hygienist, I have received hundreds of phone calls from adults in pain who have no money to pay for the dental Laine Lowe treatment they need. At least eight communities in B.C. are trying to address these problems by starting non-profit dental clinics. Why have these low-cost and volunteer dental clinics opened? Health Canada’s Chief Dental Officer points out that, “dental decay is the most prevalent chronic disease...there are about five times the number of kids with a history of dental decay than asthma and about

HEALTH MATTERS

seven times more than hay fever.” Yet as Sharon Melanson, Community Dental Hygienist with Interior Health, explains in an article describing the need for the Kelowna Gospel Mission Dental Clinic, “emergency rooms and walk-in clinics are staffed by physicians without the knowledge, skills or tools to provide dental treatment. They (patients) are forced into a revolving door of prescriptions for treatment of pain or infection, but not the cause. This puts a financial burden onto the medical system with no satisfactory resolution.” Support is needed to help B.C. communities address this serious issue and

Legislation focuses on gunshot wounds

TOM FLETCHER Black Press

B.C. is one of the last provinces in Canada to make it mandatory for medical facilities to report gunshot wounds to police. Attorney General Mike de Jong introduced the legislation Monday, more than a year after it was promised by Premier Gordon Campbell’s preelection crime strategy. The B.C. legislation is similar to that of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, leaving the reporting of stab wounds to the discretion of health care facilities. Ontario, Nova Scotia and Quebec have laws requiring only the reporting of gunshot wounds. De Jong said B.C. hospitals have long had protocols with local police agencies, to report the treatment of any wounds that suggest criminal activity. The law formalizes that requirement, and also is designed to “spread the net” beyond hospitals to clinics, doctors’ offices and even their homes if they receive patients there. “Situations would arise where police would find out some time after the fact about an individual coming in with a gunshot wound, and (there was]) uncertainty on the part of health care facilities about just what their obligations are,” de Jong said. NDP public safety critic Mike Farnworth said the opposition supports the legislation in principle. But he’s suspicious about the timing. “This is something we’ve called for in the past, it’s something the government announced 14 months ago, and I just have to ask why it’s taken so long,” Farnworth said. “And maybe it’s one of those things they thought they’d trot out to divert attention away from accidentally shooting themselves in the foot over the HST.”

Public reminded about bears Following an unusually warm winter, bears are about to leave their dens in search of the nearest food source and B.C. residents are being reminded it’s up to them to remove items that can attract bears. “The most effective and natural way to prevent conflicts with bears in urban areas is to put away any food attractants, such as garbage, bird seed, compost and fruit,” said Environment Minister Barry Penner. Designed by the Ministry of Environment in partnership with the B.C. Conservation Foundation and the Union of B.C. Municipalities, the Bear Smart Community Program is a voluntary preventative conservation program. The goal of the program is to address the root causes of bearhuman conflicts, reduce the risks to human safety and private property, and reduce the number of bears that have to be destroyed each year. The ministry’s Conservation Officer Service received more than 12,000 reports of bear sightings between April 1, 2009 and March 31, 2010. During that time, conservation officers attended more than 1,300 incidents when bears were acting aggressively or public safety was an issue. As a result, 175 bears were relocated while 265 others were destroyed. British Columbians are encouraged to prevent bear-human conflicts by adopting the following practices: ■ Keep garbage secured in the house, garage or shed until pick-up day and return the containers to the secure site once they are emptied. ■ Pick ripe and fallen fruit daily and remove any unused fruit trees. ■ Use bird feeders only in winter. ■ Keep the ground free of seeds and nuts. ■ Clean the barbecue grill after each use, and store it a secure area. ■ Bring pet food dishes inside, and store the pet food inside.

■ Don’t add meat products or uncooked food to compost, turn it regularly and keep it covered. ■ Work with your neighbours and municipal government to create a Bear Smart Community. If residents spot a

bear, they are advised to remain calm, keep away from the bear and bring children and pets indoors, if possible. People should never approach a bear and should not run from it, as bears can move very quickly. Once a bear has left the area, residents

should check their yards to ensure there are no attractants available. The public is encouraged to report humanwildlife conflicts that threaten public safety or result in significant property damage by calling the Report All Poachers and Polluters

(RAPP) line toll-free at 1-877 952-7277 (RAPP) or visit www.rapp.bc.ca. For more information on bears, bearhuman conflicts, and the criteria necessary to reach Bear Smart status, visit www.env.gov. bc.ca/wld/bearsmart/ bearsmintro.html.

Animal Lovers! Don’t miss the Vernon & District Animal Care Society

Garage & Garden Sale Friday, May 14 and Saturday, May 15 • 8 AM - 2 PM at 3205 - 22nd Street, Vernon Shop ‘til you drop while helping VDACS to reduce pet overpopulation humanely. Do you have too much stuff? Clean out your cupboards, closets and garage and let us turn your unwanted items into cash for needy cats and dogs. Drop your donations at the sale location or phone Heather at 250-542-7203 to arrange for pickup. Let’s work together towards a future where every kitten and puppy can find a loving home. All garage sale proceeds will fund the following life saving animal welfare programs: ★ Spay / Neuter Assistance Program for cats and dogs from low income families ★Emergency Vet Care Assistance Program for cats and dogs from needy families ★Feral Cat Trap / Neuter / Return Program for humane population control of the unsocialized offspring of abandoned pet cats ★Rescue, Rehabilitation and Adoption Program for homeless and abandoned pets

P.S. We’re looking for families to love us forever! Meet us at Crescent Falls Vet Hospital or phone Sue at 250-545-7535. Momma Gee and Kiwi - These little beauties have been waiting for a home for months now. Their mother had to go into a care facility and these girls found themselves homeless. Momma Gee has been declawed so they have always been indoor only cats. We would really love to keep these two kitties together, as they love to groom each other and they like to sleep together. Their are very affectionate and great to have around.

Lady Abigail

was dumped off out in the country in desperate need of eyelid surgery. Things were looking pretty bleak for him until someone brought him to us. He has had surgery on his eyelids and he is healing up nicely, and now he just needs to find his new home. Everytime someone comes to visit, Magoo thinks “This is it! This is my person!” and he will try to get your attention with his loud purr and magnetic personality! Magoo makes him own fun around here, but would love to find his forever home.

Chloe is a 12 year old collie / setter

Love Bug was dumped out on Westside road and was in pretty sad shape when we first met him. A kind person took the time to bring him in to us, and things are looking up! He had quite a few scratches and wounds and was pretty matted. We partially shaved him and his fur is now looking great. Love Bug is pretty serious about cuddling so if your looking for a Big Love Bug, come and meet him.

Rosie

- If you look up affectionate in the dictionary, there’s a photo of our Rosie. Rosie is our very friendly manx kitty. Rosie’s mother was ill and couldn’t care for her anymore, so she surrendered her to us. She was badly matted and had to have a little fur cut, but it’s almost all grown in again. Rosie would do best in a quiet home where she is the only pet as she doesn’t seem to like other cats, dogs, or kids. So if you have room in your home for a real purrer and cuddler, Rosie is your girl!

Mr. B (aka Buster) has been with us for a few months now and is waiting patiently for his forever home. His sister has already been adopted and Buster can’t figure out what is wrong with him! We assure him that there’s nothing wrong with him and he will have his new home soon too. Buster is very friendly, and likes to be brushed and petted. Buster has lived peacefully with other cats, but doesn’t seem too sure about dogs.

Mr. Magoo

was found as a stray and was badly matted so we gave her a nice little lion cut! Her fur is growing back long and beautiful. Abigail is quite the character and is very entertaining. She doesn’t seem to mind other cats and is unsure about dogs. If you would like to have a kitty love muffin, our Lady Abigail would love to come and live with you.

cross who finds herself looking for a new home. Her family is moving out of the country and feel that the long trip and quarantine would be too much for her. She’s pretty laid back, and loves to go for walks and car rides. She is very well behaved and never wonders away from her home. She’s good with other dogs and is a little unsure of cats. This girl still has a lot of living to do!

Holly

- Let’s make friends nice and slow ... Holly is our very shy, and scared little tuxedo kitty. She came as a stray and was pretty frightened. She is getting used to her warm bed, her food, and of course all the attention. She will need a patient person with a quiet home for her to feel safe. We are sure with a little time she will make a very nice friend for someone.

Coco loves people and just wants to be around them. Coco loves attention, loves to cuddle and he doesn’t seem to mind other cats and some dogs. Coco has lived as an indoor/ outdoor kitty. Coco would make a great addition to any home.

Construction to begin on KGH’s new laboratory ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

Work will start this week on the next phase of development at Kelowna General Hospital. Ground preparation of the land across from KGH on Pandosy Street was set to start this week for construction of the hospital’s new clinical support building. The buildings will house KGH’s new laboratory and clinical support departments, which will be moved from their locations in the hospital. The building is being constructed in preparation for the new Interior Heart and Surgical Centre. That building will be built on the site of the oldest part of KGH, a section that will be demolished to make room for the heart centre. Preliminary drawings suggest overhead walkways from the new

clinical support building will connect it to the new tower currently under construction at KGH. Peter Bros. Construction of Kelowna was awarded the contract to pre-load the clinical support centre site. “The awarding of this contract represents an important milestone on a project that will bring full cardiac services, a comprehensive surgical centre and a range of support services to patients throughout the Southern Interior,” said Norman Embree, Interior Health Authority chairman. The contract for the design and construction of the clinical support building will be awarded later this year. IHA says, like many construction projects in Kelowna, it is important to pre-load the site with dirt in order to prepare the ground to withstand

the added weight of the building. No construction will take place until building plans are approved by the City of Kelowna. “As we prepare the site for construction, we will work with our neighbours, the City of Kelowna and the many clinical stakeholders to ensure their needs are addressed, within our over-arching goal of improving patient care for everyone in the B.C. Interior,” said Joanne Konnert, with IHA. The support building is the first step in the construction of the $448 million heart centre project, announced by Premier Gordon Campbell here in January. The project will include the cardiac centre, a new cardiac catheterization lab, new inpatient units and extensive clinical support services.

Tourism crew cleans up creek Morning Star Staff

For the second year in a row, Tourism Vernon has cleaned up the stretch of creek that runs between the Wesbild Centre and Vernon Square Mall. This year the group removed over a dozen bags of garbage from the creek. The Regional District of North Okanagan is supporting groups like these through the Greater Vernon Adopta-Stream Program. In honour of Earth Day, and of this group’s efforts, the first sign for the Adopt-a-Stream program has been erected. The Adopt-a-Stream program encourages community involvement and awareness of our local water resources. This program is a way for the regional district to recognize groups for their efforts to improve water quality and stream habitat, as well as to provide the program participants with access to watershed-based environmental education

Anti-HST petition closing in on goal, campaigners JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Canvassers aiming to defeat the harmonized sales tax now say they’ve gathered more than 175,000 signatures and are well on their way to victory. Fight HST campaign organizer Chris Delaney said Monday 20 constituencies have more than the required 10 per cent of registered voters signed up. Seven of those ridings are at 15 per cent or more, he said. “This is a phenomenal achievement in only two weeks of steady campaigning for signatures,” Delaney said. The biggest totals so far are in CaribooChilcotin, Cariboo North, ParksvilleQualicum, Peace River North, Shuswap, Skeena, Fort Langley-Aldergrove, Langley, Abbotsford South, and ChilliwackHope. The 90-day citizens’ initiative campaign needs to get the signatures of 10 per cent of registered voters in all 85 constituencies for Elections BC to declare it successful. That’s expected to translate into 3,000 to 4,500 signatures in most urban ridings. Delaney said the signatures collected to date amount to 48 per cent of the total that will be required with nine weeks still to go before the July 5 deadline. He said organizers are getting strong numbers across B.C. The campaign wants a sizable buffer in each district to offset signatures that may be ruled invalid. “We will keep going until we reach the 15 per cent threshold we have set for ourselves in every riding, or until Premier Gordon Campbell cries ‘uncle’ and agrees to withdraw the HST, whichever comes first,” said ex-premier Bill Vander Zalm, who heads the campaign. Success does not ensure the HST will be repealed. The right number of signatures would only force the provincial government to introduce – but not necessarily pass – legislation dismantling the tax or else face a referendum on the issue.

Ottawa would also be required to cooperate. Vander Zalm’s strategy includes targeting various government MLAs for

recall campaigns if they refuse to dismantle the HST. He predicts people power will force the Liberals to back down or

be obliterated. At least half of NDP MLAs have joined as canvassers, but anger over the HST crosses politi-

It’s simple

cal lines – large numbers of people are signing in constituencies that are traditional B.C. Liberal strongholds.

The tax is expected to benefit most industries, but will raise the cost of many previously PSTexempt products and ser-

vices by seven per cent. The campaign has a list of active sign-up locations posted at www. fighthst.com.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Being open and friendly to all is well and good, but make sure you are extremely cautious about whom you take into your confidence. Someone you would least expect could be an adversary. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) You have a natural talent of taking that which is old and worn-out and transforming it into something that is functional and useful. Instead of throwing anything out today, use this gift. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) Far more impressive achievements can be made today if the goals of you and your mate are in harmony. Beautiful music can be made when you both sing off the same sheet. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) Things can be far harder to achieve when you have to depend upon others to get them. You’ll realize today that when you stand on your own two feet, things happen more quickly and easily. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) You shouldn’t be afraid to take a chance on what you want as long as you don’t bet a dollar to make a dime. Be realistic about your gambles and you can come out a winner. CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Although at times today you might find it hard to believe, conditions in general are actually rather good. Don’t let anything negative that happens screen out any of the opportunities surrounding you. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) Having preconceived ideas about how to handle things of a commercial nature could be more detrimental than constructive. Keep an open mind and wait for things to unfold before acting.

PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) Be optimistic, but not to the point of ignoring good common sense. Be absolutely certain you know what you are doing before embarking on a risky venture. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) As long as you acknowledge and consider the viewpoints of others, you shouldn’t be afraid to strongly defend your beliefs. Speak up and vigorously make your points. TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) No matter how astute your investigative skills today, if you’re too negative about your abilities to take advantage of them, they’ll do you little good. Use what you have to the fullest.

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

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder To play bridge well requires some mathematical ability. When you are in four hearts, it is beneficial to be able to count to 10, the number of tricks you need for your contract. Well, in this deal, which 10 tricks will you take? West leads the spade ace: three, nine, eight. West cashes the spade king: five, four, jack. West continues with the spade queen, on which East discards his club 10. How would you play from there? North made a negative double after West’s onespade overcall. This promised four hearts (or perhaps five or six in a hand too weak to respond two hearts). Then, when South showed four-card heart support, North leapt to game, not mentioning

his club support. (Note that even four clubs can be defeated with good defense. West starts with three rounds of spades, East ruffing the last with his club 10 to effect an uppercut.) You have eight top tricks: four hearts, one diamond and three clubs. Two spade ruffs in your hand will bring the total to 10. So, after ruffing the third spade, play a trump to the board, ruff the last spade with your heart ace, overtake your last trump with dummy’s king, draw trumps, and claim. Notice the necessity to ruff the third spade with the heart ace. If you ruff lower and cash your heart ace, you will be stuck in your hand. If you play a club to dummy’s ace, East ruffs. And if you cash the

diamond ace, then ruff a diamond, East scores a long trump. The curious may work out what opening lead defeats four hearts, and why a shift to that suit after cashing the spade ace is too late.
