Vipers clinch semifinal spot GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

DAUPHIN, MAN. – While the Vernon Vipers are still searching for their A game, it appears a trio of subpar performances have been good enough to earn them a berth in the semifinals of the 40th Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey championship. Curtis Gedig fired a pair of goals, including the winner at 13:25 of the second period, as the Vipers survived a third-period collapse to outlast the Oakville Blades of Ontario 5-3 Tuesday afternoon before 925 fans at Credit Union Place. The 0-3 Blades have a slim mathematical chance of staying in the fiveteam competition. Vernon will look to secure second place as they face the Brockville Braves of Ont. today (noon PT). Brockville ambushed Oakville 11-2 Sunday. The host Dauphin Kings (2-0) had a chance to lock up first place in the roundrobin when they faced the La Ronge Ice Wolves in the Tuesday night game. Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner chose not to reprimand his club for another third-period meltdown. “I could see our guys squeezing their sticks a little bit. You’d like to think at this time of the season that that’s not going to happen, but they’re kids. I could have went in there (locker room)

and gave them the ol’ what for, but it’s too late for that. I have to go the other way and let them know that we haven’t been at our best, and that’s fine.” Vernon – playing without injured leading scorer Connor Jones for the third straight game – took about half a period to really get going as back-toback penalties in the first five minutes caused their lines to be out of sync. The Blades hemmed Vernon in their own zone with some solid perimeter work on the powerplay, but only managed to generate four shots in the period. Once the Vipers settled in, they began working the puck down low and utilizing their pointmen to get shots on Oakville netminder Daniel Savelli (18 saves). Gedig, a smooth-skating blueliner, opened the scoring (scoresheet credits Sahir Gill) with a point shot that deflected off a Blade defender at 14:32 of the first period. The winner was a little more unique as he banked a hard dump-in off the glass which completely fooled Savelli. “I shot it in off the glass and the goalie lost it in the seats, I guess, and it just bounced between his legs,” grinned Gedig, who is second in Viper scoring at the RBC with 2+2.

Loved ones mourn tragic loss ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

ROGER KNOXT/MORNING STAR

Flowers and notes mark the area on Aberdeen Road where Keira-Leigh Carlson’s life came to an end Friday night.

It was not uncommon for Kiera-Leigh Carlson to walk from her Coldstream residence at night to her job at a downtown Vernon night club. It was uncommon, however, for the reliable Carlson not to make it to work. When she failed to show up for her shift Friday night, co-workers and friends became concerned. Police were called. Search and rescue was brought in. Now, friends, family and co-workers are trying to come to terms with Carlson’s tragic death at age 22, after her body was discovered Saturday morning just after 6 a.m. among rocks near the North Okanagan Regional District office.

Your participation makes a difference.

A memorial on the spot was covered with flowers, notes and a Teddy bear Monday. Carlson was the victim of what police are calling a pedestrian-motor vehicle incident. A Coldstream man made his first court appearance Monday, in connection with the incident, after being charged with dangerous operation of a motor vehicle causing death. “There are factors that would determine to be difficult to prove hit-and-run,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “There are certain grounds that must be followed to charge an individual with hit-and-run, and you must be able to prove all of those grounds.

News Armstrong man ready for Afghanistan ROGER KNOX

the year and spent summers doing military training in Gagetown, Ont., joining as an infantry officer. Hennessy returned to Victoria to work with the Canadian Scottish Regiment for two years before becoming a public affair officer in 2007. That same year, he married Robbins in Antigua, and the couple moved to Petawawa. Tara is no different than Andrew in that’s she’s excited and, of course, nervous for her husband’s tour in Kandahar (he’ll be stationed at Kandahar Airfield as second in command of the public affairs team). But her love and support is unquestionable. “Everybody has their apprehensions, but if he didn’t believe, he wouldn’t be going and I wouldn’t let him,� said Robbins. Hennessy will take a part of his North Okanagan roots with him to Kandahar. Home at Christmas with Robbins to visit both members’ families, Hennessy was presented with the flag of the City of Armstrong by city council. He’ll fly the banner along a “Hometown Flag Boulevard� in Kandahar, an area where flags of Canadian soldiers’ hometowns are raised. “Everybody around me knows I believe in what I do,� said Hennessy, who will be overseas for approximately seven months. “It’s not like I’m doing a job I’m not interested in. I fully believe in what I do, and in the men and women I’m going overseas with. I have lots of support from my family and Tara’s family.�

Andrew Hennessy is no different than any Canadian soldier set to deploy to Afghanistan. There’s a sense of adventure and excitement. And there’s trepidation. “I try not to focus or think about bad things that might happen,� said Hennessy, 28, a captain in the Canadian military from Armstrong who deploys for his first tour of duty this week. “Obviously, they’re in the back of your head, but I believe in what I do. I believe in the men and women that our country is sending, and believe in what they do. I wouldn’t go if I didn’t believe in the cause.� Hennessy’s role in Afghanistan is to inform Canadians about what’s happening in Kandahar. He’s a public affairs officer, stationed in Petawawa, Ont., about two hours northwest of Ottawa, and it’s his job to make sure the commander is communicating to Canadians, to Afghans, to whoever might be interested in the Canadian presence in Afghanistan. “Overseas, I’m the guy who works with the media, the embedded reporters, setting up phone interviews, TV interviews, working with Afghan journalists, making sure the story of what we’re doing over there is getting out, making sure people understand and get the facts,� said Hennessy. “We put out as much information out there for the public.� Hennessy has made the military his profession literally from the day he graduated from Pleasant Valley

Secondary in Armstrong in 2000. He missed his high school graduation ceremony, driving to Vancouver to take his oath of allegiance with the army, then returning to Armstrong to catch the tail end of the grad ceremonies. He has two cousins in the military, but there’s no real family history, unlike his high school sweetheart, now his wife, Tara Robbins, whose great-grandfather served with the Canadian military, and a grandfather who served with the

U.S. Air Force. “It was just one of those things,� said Hennessy. “I was of that age when I wanted to pick a career and surveyed what’s out there,� said Hennessy. “The program I joined the military under was going to give me all those. It was going to get me into university and give me an education, which was important to me, and it was a paying job, a chance to go see the world and the country, which was awesome.

“It was also a sense of being part of something bigger than myself as an individual, you know?� Hennessy enrolled in the Regular Officer Training Program, where, normally, a student is sent to military college in Kingston. Hennessy, however, was funded to go to the University of Victoria, where he earned a degree in political science. He stayed on at UVIC and earned a certificate in public relations, paid for by the military. He went to university during

We had nothing to lose so we just went out there and played our best and showed that we can play with the best of them,� he said. “That fourth goal kind of took the wind out of our sails, but we got it back.

Reservoirs higher, but still low RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There’s more water available to Greater Vernon residents, but not enough to ease restrictions. Reservoir levels on the Aberdeen plateau were 45 per cent of average Monday, whereas it was 32 per cent of average April 15. “That still places us in stage three restrictions,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager. “We aren’t out of the woods but we’re not farther into the woods.” The primary reason for the increased reservoir levels is rain during early May. The rain has also led to snow at higher elevations. “It may translate

“We aren’t out of the woods.” — Al Cotsworth into water. But if there’s a long, cold spring, it could just evaporate,” said Cotsworth. For the snow to melt and fill reservoirs, early heat is required or warm temperatures with rain. It’s not known how long water restrictions will continue or when the utility can ease off the rules. “It’s less likely we’ll be going into stage four (no irrigating) but that’s weather-dependent,” said Cotsworth of what may occur over the next

few months. Under stage three, residents can only use manual sprinklers 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.

Refilling of pools and garden ponds is not allowed at this time, but that policy will be revisited by the NORD board today. Hand-held sprinkling by residents is allowed at any time. The North Okanagan Regional District is also trying to address what it calls rumours that the lack of water is partially the result of gates being open on reservoirs during the winter. Cotsworth says it’s not unusual for gates to be open on some

reservoirs, and that is necessary to move water around. “The gates may be open but it has nothing to do with the loss of water.” Cotsworth says the water from the reservoirs drains into Duteau Creek and then it goes into a pond at head gates. “The important thing is did the water spill over the top at the intake and it hasn’t,” he said.

Politicians split over filling pools RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Politicians are divided over letting Greater Vernon residents fill their pools. The North Okanagan Regional District board will debate today whether a ban on residents using the domestic water supply to fill and top up pools should be lifted after being in place for about a week. Mike Macnabb, BX-Silver Star director, says he hasn’t heard any complaints about the policy. “We’re going into a drought and there’s no certainty we’ll Mike Gavinchuk have water in our reservoirs,” he said. “Water for people and livestock is more important than water in swimming pools.” Mike Gavinchuk, BX-Swan Lake director, believes community interests must be a priority. “What’s more important, a pool or water for survival? A pool is not a necessity of life,” he said. Jack Gilroy, Vernon director, wants the ban lifted, and says opposition from residents has been strong. “People made a huge investment in their pools,” he said. Gilroy insists water is required to ensure the integrity of the pool, and he is concerned that the structures could become a breeding ground for

mosquitoes if they’re allowed to collect stagnant water. Patrick Nicol, Vernon director, wants the issue revisited. “We jumped a stage (of restrictions) without the ability for residents to have access to water,” he said. “We have to look at it. There are too many aspects that don’t make sense.” A representative from the pool industry will make a presentation to NORD today about the regulations. Lee Kazmar, with Pools, Ponds and Waterscapes, says people with pools want some control over the six hours of irrigation they’re allowed under stage three restrictions — either put it on the lawn or in the pool. “Our customers aren’t looking for more than their neighbour is allowed to put on their lawn,” he said. While stage three restrictions are in place Macnabb believes there may be a need to go to stage four, which means virtually no irrigating would be allowed. “We are in desperate straits,” he said. “If we run short, where do we get water from? We can’t make it.” Gilroy admits there must be a balance between the public’s immediate needs and ensuring a sustainable water supply. “We have to let people fill their pools but we need water to flush toilets in August,” he said.

Police recover stolen vehicles ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Four people are facing charges in connection with a pair of stolen vehicles. Vernon RCMP were given a call Saturday about four people seen leaving what turned out to be a stolen Dodge pick-up in the 200 block of North Aberdeen Road at around 7:30 a.m. A short time later, police received a call about a Pontiac Sunfire being stolen from the 4600 block of 34th Street.

“The Sunfire was found abandoned west of Lumby, but four people were seen leaving that vehicle,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. A police service dog was called in, and three of the four suspects were located a short distance away. They included a 16-year-old girl and two men in their 20s. The fourth suspect, a 20-year-old man, was arrested later in the date by Lumby RCMP. All four are facing two counts of possession of stolen property.

Thief avoids spike belt and capture Morning Star Staff

Vernon RCMP are continuing to investigate a truck theft Friday that resulted in police deploying a spike belt. The incident began mid-afternoon, when police received word of a stolen Ford pick-up. “The suspect led police around Vernon and the Tronson Road area, but we never did get into a chase with that vehicle,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “The truck tried to

ram one of our police vehicles, and a spike belt was deployed, but the suspect managed to avoid it.” Police set up containment of the area and were able to recover the stolen truck, but the driver and, possibly a passenger, avoided detection. “We had reports that a man and woman were in the truck,” said Molendyk. “A police service dog tracked the man to an apartment block but we were never able to apprehend the suspect.” The case remains under investigation.

Enderby ready for emergencies RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Enderby is counting on regional partnerships during disasters. Council has decided to join an emergency operations service provided by the City of Vernon. “Joining with Vernon makes sense,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. Vernon and Coldstream have a joint emergency preparedness function, but the service is now being offered to other local jurisdictions under contract. Wejr believes joining the program will simplify planning. “Armstrong, Enderby and Spallumcheen were in emergency services together and we couldn’t find anyone to hire to co-ordinate it,” she said. Wejr also points out that Vernon and Coldstream also have greater access to people during a disaster. “We have a small core of volunteers but if a big event happened,

we may not have room for evacuees,” she said. “Joining with Vernon means we’ll all work together and there’s a pool of resources to call on.” Joining Vernon’s program will cost Enderby $9,341 for 2010.

Officials rally behind growers RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Victoria is being told to put its money where its mouth is. Delegates to the recent Southern Interior Local Government Association conference at Sun Peaks voted to ask the provincial government to purchase local food products. “It does purchase food through its various agencies such as jails and for special events,” said Mike Macnabb, a North Okanagan Regional Mike Macnabb District director who put the resolution before his colleagues. The catalyst for Macnabb’s motion was the ongoing financial crisis facing Okanagan apple growers. “This is the time to do it,” said Macnabb of the government making B.C. food a priority.

The next step will be for SILGA to send the resolution to the Union of B.C. Municipalities for consideration. If UBCM supports the concept, the resolution would then be sent to the provincial government for action. UBCM doesn’t meet until September and Macnabb acknowledges that the timeline may not fit in with the immediate need to help farmers. “It takes time to do this stuff and there is a process to follow,” he said. Macnabb isn’t sure if the government will change its purchasing policies. “I’ve been told the government is already talking about this approach. I’m optimistic,” he said. One issue not discussed by SILGA is the tree fruit sector looking for financial assistance. The B.C. Fruit Growers Association has asked Agriculture Minister Steve Thomson to provide apple farmers with $10 million and to initiate a claim to a provincial/federal insurance program because of plummeting prices for the 2009 apple crop.

Lumby volunteers respond to house blaze RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Quick action kept fire from spreading through a rural Lumby home. Thirteen members of the Lumby Fire Department responded to a blaze on Trinity Valley Road Friday just before 11:30 p.m. “Smoke was coming out of the windows,” said chief Tony Clayton. “We got an attack team in there and they suppressed the fire right away.” The blaze was contained to the basement but there was smoke damage throughout the residence. The damage is estimated at about $30,000 and the occupants — who fled through a window — were insured.

The RCMP are involved in the case because rural Lumby is not part of a fire investigation function, and officers are trying to determine the cause of the fire. “It’s been ruled as not suspicious,” said Clayton. The volunteer firefighters were at the Trinity Valley Road residence until about 2:30 a.m. Saturday. But a few hours later — 7:28 a.m. — they received a report of a holiday trailer on fire on Dure Meadow Road. “It was minimal,” said Clayton, adding that the cause was accidental. And on Sunday, crews were called out to a brush fire right in Lumby. “We had a busy weekend,” said Clayton of the three incidents.

ou’re probably familiar with the TV ad where a sad-faced child walks into a restaurant looking for a job because his parents can’t afford to sign him up for sports. Well the young fellow’s going to have to roll up his sleeves even more thanks to B.C.’s Liberal government. Sports organizations across the North Okanagan are bracing for costs to skyrocket once the harmonized sales tax takes effect July 1. The biggest hit will come on facility rentals — whether it’s Vernon’s Civic Arena, Pat Duke Memorial Arena in Lumby or the fields socRichard Rolke cer and baseball depend on for their programs. The Greater Vernon Minor Hockey Association is expecting ice time costs in 2010/11 to climb a staggering 10 per cent as a result of the HST and higher regional district rental fees. Older players will fork out $480 for the coming season instead of the previous $440. Purchasing equipment will also become an even more expensive exercise after Canada Day. “We won’t be able to buy as much in terms of bats, balls, catcher’s equipment, helmets and face masks,” said Paulette Quibell, president of the Vernon Minor Fastball Association. All of these groups — as well as adult sports associations — are non-profit and their bank accounts aren’t rolling in anything. With no ability to eat the HST, there is going to be no choice but to pass the cost on to the users. Now the government continues to insist

that B.C. has turned the corner and the worst of the recession is behind us. But I’m not sure some North Okanagan families received the memo. Many people have lost their jobs in the last year-and-a-half, or they’ve had their wages frozen, which is like going backwards when the cost of living is taken into account. That means the focus is on the staples of life — housing, food and utilities. No matter how much a parent loves their child and wants to provide opportunities for them, that extra $40 could be what benches a hockey player altogether. And ultimately the ability of youth sports to grow and prosper could be negatively impacted. Already Lumby Minor Hockey is suggesting that the higher costs surrounding the HST could force it to scrap fees for firsttime players. The ironic part of all of this is the provincial government — the same bunch pushing the HST — is also encouraging British Columbians to be more active. “Participation in sport and physical activity is valued and embraced as a way of life in British Columbia, sustained by a provincewide balanced commitment to healthy, active lifestyles and the ethical pursuit of excellence,” states the Ministry of Healthy Living and Sports’ website. The Liberals have said over and over again that the harmonized sales tax will be good for business and an economic catalyst that creates jobs. And if that proves to be the case, that same little fellow who is pleading to wash dishes in a greasy spoon shouldn’t have any problem moonlighting to make sure he can lace up.

Having a second beer with dinner might not seem like such a good idea, once new legislation aimed at taking drunk drivers off B.C. roads comes into effect. Acting Public Safety Minister Mike de Jong has announced new penalties for drivers caught imbibing before driving. Anyone who fails a roadside breath test will face a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and 30-day vehicle impoundment. Add in other fines and fees for towing and education and that second beer with dinner could end up costing more than $3,700. Higher fines are also in store for people who blow a “warn” — defined as a reading between 0.05 and 0.08 blood-alcohol content. This could lead to a three-day driving ban and a $200 administrative penalty. Previously, the punishment handed out by police for either infraction was a 24-hour roadside suspension. The legislation responds to an increase in drunk driving cases in the province, despite more than 30 years of education from Mothers Against Drunk Driving and Counterattack programs. Provincial stats show about one in 30 people have yet to get the message. Unfortunately, the legislation won’t do much to curtail chronic drunk drivers, the people who rack up dozens of charges, fines, car accidents and injuries — and yet still drive despite the loss of their driver’s licence. But the legislation gives police another tool to remove drivers from the road and puts the possibility of losing transportation, reputation and a significant amount of income in the front of people’s minds. So when the waitress asks if you’d like another glass of wine, ask for a glass of water instead. – Black Press

Restrictions raise questions

L

et us hope that something other than hasty, poorly considered responses to the unprecedented low water levels in our Aberdeen plateau reservoirs occurs. The Greater Vernon water utility has, thus far, only provided taxpayers with a partial picture of our overall water resources. Yet they are proposing harsh restrictions based upon that less than complete and hence skewed picture. Restrictions that impact the ability of some taxpayers to continue earning a livelihood and lower the quality of life of other taxpayers who are forbidden to operate water-dependent amenities have been imposed Chicken Little fashion without due diligence being done of the consequences thereof. We have water rights on Kalamalka Lake. Are they fully taken up or can they be used to supplement our shortfall from the Aberdeen plateau reservoirs? We have wells, some of which have been closed due to health concerns. Are those health concerns being addressed? Are we pumping all we can from other wells to make up the water shortfall as much as we can? Are plans in force to bring addi-

tional wells into production? Has the province been approached seeking additional water rights on Kalamalka Lake? These are simple questions. They are not rocket science. Imposing harsh measures without explaining to the public that everything has been done that can be done and that measures are underway to augment our water drawing rights from Kalamalka and Okanagan lakes and raise our dams on the Aberdeen plateau so we no longer spill water in plentiful years but maintain them for use during dry ones are simply common sense. The restrictions are being applied willy-nilly to everyone regardless of the source of their water. That

WATER WOES The new rate structure adopted by the Greater Vernon water utility seems to be designed to extract the maximum amount of money from each household rather than encourage consumers to use less water. Households using less than 20 cubic metres per quarter will still have to pay the $50.17 base rate. Where is the incentive to use less? The attitude is likely to be, "I've paid for 20 cubic metres so I'm going to use it." Martin Bailey SETTING PRIORITIES In a recent paper, a graph was published showing the water levels in our reservoirs for the last 10 years. At this point this year, we are at the lowest level of water ever in those reservoirs. With normal consumption, we would run out of water for drinking and flushing toilets before the fall, so stage three water restrictions are in place. It's common sense to impose these restrictions. Who among us wants to end up in a situation like the one we witnessed in

should be a political, not a bureaucratic, decision. Harsh measures require open public debate before being imposed. Surely it was either dereliction of duty or lack of reasonable foresight that resulted in such surprisingly harsh water restrictions being arbitrarily imposed upon us taxpayers without any notice whatsoever? Doing a flip-flop from "We might have a problem and may need to go to stage two restrictions in the near future," to, ‘Oh my God" is not acceptable. It is time for politicians to take charge and ensure that intelligent responses to an admittedly difficult water shortage are made and that actions are instituted to offset future reoccurrences.

Lavington earlier this year? They couldn't use their water because of a polluted well but it's the same result. No water for drinking or flushing toilets. The Okanagan Valley is a semi-arid or semi-desert area. According to statistics, we only get between 10 to 20 inches of rain per year. So we won't get enough rain to refill the reservoirs during the summer. We drain most of the water from our reservoirs every year with ordinary use even when they are full in the spring. It's very concerning to read about the disputes over the water restrictions imposed by the North Okanagan Regional District, especially the disagreements coming from people with swimming pools, car washes and golf courses. Especially concerning is to hear Mayor Lippert speak out in favor of filling swimming pools. I understand about the money invested in these ventures. I had a pool built in my yard years ago when my sons were young so I'm aware of the financial losses that could occur. Some jobs could be lost but what good are jobs if you can't live here because there's no potable water? Tourists

Obviously all the tax dollars spent on Duteau Creek water quality upgrades have been made to a water source that is not 100 per cent reliable in the drier years we have been told are likely to occur as our climate continues to change. Equally obvious, we need to increase our water licenses to obtain more water from our local lakes. Without more water our former housing boom becomes a bust complete with all the consequences that entails. This is not a one-year aberration. It is simply a taste of living in a semi arid climate that is in the midst of becoming more arid. The recent increase in our water rates is just a harbinger of what is to come. Greater Vernon water utility revenues will tank this year with all of the usage restrictions and they will be crying poverty to all of us taxpayers next year and demanding even higher water rates — a classic vicious circle of more for less. We will need to change our highway signs to read “Welcome to Greater Vernon: Home of the Okanagan's Highest and Most Restrictive Water Rates." Jim Bodkin

won't stop here if there's no potable water. Is it really more important to have full swimming pools, green golf courses and car washes than to have drinking water and water to irrigate the orchards? Have financial concerns and leisure activity become more important than life-sustaining water? Terry Sexsmith POOLING RESOURCES It is hard to believe the regional district is considering backtracking on the water issue in Vernon. Perhaps it is really the mayor and a couple of councillors who are the problem. Pool owners, if you can afford a pool, you can afford a water truck delivery. Pool companies, you might consider buying a water truck and making it part of your business. The non-pool owners in Vernon should not have to be cutting back on water while pools are continuing to be filled from regional district sources. There are not enough pool interests in Vernon to get the mayor re-elected - something to think about. Ellen Simpson

BUY APPLES I liked the look of the recipes in The Morning Star for asparagus and purchased some the next day. Meanwhile at the local store, I saw huge boxes of apples growers are still trying to sell. Can you remind people about the pleasures of apple sauce, pie etc. They are not just for Thanksgiving.

Have a hamburger or smokie and help benefit a national charity. On Saturday, visit the M&M Meat Shop at the Vernon Square Mall – to support the 22nd annual M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ Day benefiting the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC). M&M Meat Shops’ franchisees, staff and thousands of volunteers from coast-to-coast will grill hamburgers and hot dogs to meet the national fundraising goal of $2 million. Between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., North Okanagan residents will receive a hamburger or hot dog, a drink and a bag of chips for a minimum donation of $2.50. All food and time is donated, so every penny raised goes directly to the CCFC for its research programs. For an additional $2, supporters can cool down by purchasing a delicious M&M Meat Shops Strawberry Shortcake Bar or Crunchy Almond Bar and proceeds will be donated to the CCFC.

the wait. The new swimming pool will feature a beachstyle entrance, meaning swimmers can simply wade into the pool. At 25-metres, the pool will allow the local swim club in Armstrong to host official meets. Perhaps the highlighted feature for young swimmers will be a 103-foot water slide, which has yet to be installed. The pool area is larger than the old facility, including a tots pool, 10-inches in depth, on one side, and piping will be installed so that a hot tub can be placed on the pool deck. Unlike the City of Vernon, there are no issues with filling the pool due to water restrictions. The pool will be filled with water from the City of Armstrong, which is on level one restrictions. “Water is not a problem at this time,” said Brew.

Vernon author tackles space BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff

Author Hugh Rayment refuses to be pigeonholed. The 86-year-old veteran of the Second World War and father of six has come out with a fourth book and it’s a bit of a departure from his other fare. Outer Space and Beyond is the first science-fiction effort from the Viking, Alta. native who has lived in Vernon for the past 25 years. He’s also written a book about his own life growing up on a northern Alberta farmstead, a novel and an examination of Vernon’s military past. He’ll be at Schubert Centre from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday for a signing. Rayment was inspired to tackle the new genre based on what he’s observed increasingly in media reports and conversations with friends. “There’s so much talk about global warming and environmental issues,” said Rayment. “I thought, ‘You know, it’s a different take on things.’ “Lots of people are into science fiction these days. Where do our UFOs come from?” he laughed. “Who knows?” The book follows a team of scientists that discover a new planet and travel there to

discover an advanced race of people who have done away with the evils of war and economics. “I don’t think it’s an impossibility to have peace on Earth,” Rayment said. “Some of the answers are in this book.” Rayment himself is a survivor having battled shell shock and posttraumatic stress from his time in the Second World War. Last year, he endured a string of heart attacks. It wasn’t good for his writing. “It really buggered it up,” he said, but noted the fictional style freed him in a way his previous books had not. “When you write fiction, you can just let it go.” The third of seven children to parents who emigrated from London, England, Rayment has penned an autobiography called The House: The Cradle of Destiny, a novel called The House at the End of the Lane and a book called Camp Vernon: A Century of Canadian Military History. He’s looking forward to Saturday’s event because it gives him a chance to meet his readers and hopefully some new fans. “The contact with people (is what I like most), he says. “They come in and chat and hopefully buy a book or two.”

Dear Realtor Mike, We are thinking of selling our property and buying a smaller home in town. What are the various costs of selling and buying property?

Answer: Customary costs of selling typically are: lawyer/notary fees, costs of clearing title (discharge fees, prepayment penalties on mortgage), real estate commission and the GST associated with these

services (as of July 1st additional 7% HST). Customary costs of buying typically are: lawyer/notary fees, any due diligence costs (home inspection, survey, title investigation etc), cost of mortgage (Land Title fees, appraisal etc), Property Transfer Tax (1% of the 1st $200k & 2% of balance). In some cases GST may be applicable. Additionally there may be other costs – moving, utilities etc.

Whether you live in a house or an apartment, have a balcony or a yard (or even just a window), everyone can enjoy gardening. Space restrictions aren’t reason to abandon one’s gardening dreams. Just a little greenery can really brighten a space and there are gardening options available to everyone.

Great produce yield – deeper soil provides better root growth and more production per square foot of gardening. 3. Longer planting season – the soil is elevated and dries more quickly and also warms up faster, so you can plant earlier in spring and later into fall. 4. Maintenance – you can manage the quality and types of soils needed for different plants and herbs. If densely planted, the leaves will shade out weed growth. 5. Drainage – as the bed is raised, excess water drains and the soil doesn’t get over saturated. 6.

The Red Star Spike plant, with its rich colour and grand foliage, is a gardener’s favourite. In garden beds or containers, the dark red leaves that never fade create a focal point or backdrop for bright flowers. Red Star Spike can also create colour variations when planted with other green plants. This plant is easy to care for, responds in full sun or shady light, and grows to a height of 24” to 36”. Because of its hardiness and colour, it has become a preferred alternative to the traditional dracaena spike. - News Canada

Take measures to limit water use

T

he residents of VernonMonashee will not be surprised to hear that this summer is going to be a dry one. With level-three water restrictions already in place, it is now more important than ever to use water appropriately and sparingly. The water situation will become even more severe as we approach July and August. Whatever water we can save now will help stretch our reserves to see us through the summer months. A person living in the Okanagan uses an annual average of 675 litres of water per day. That is 335 litres per day more than the average Canadian. Water use varies seasonally and is much higher in the summer. Of the water used by Okanagan residents, 150 litres is used indoors and 525

litres is used outdoors. Most of the outdoor use likely occurs during the summer months and undoubtedly reflects our love of green lawns. This year, our lawns may be costing us more than they’re worth. Twenty-four per cent of the total water drawn from streams or lakes from Armstrong to Osoyoos is used for residential outdoor irrigation. In the North Okanagan, that water needs to be shifted to higher priority uses such as drinking water, farm land, hospitals and other vital services. If you are like me and enjoy a green lawn, there are many ways to achieve both a beautiful backyard and water conservation. To begin, if you

have an automatic irrigation system, make sure there are no leaks – leaks only result in wasted water. When it comes to watering your lawn, there is a right way and a wrong way to do it. Your lawn should be Eric Foster watered less often, but for a longer period of time. You should water your lawn approximately once every second week in the late spring and early fall and once every week during summer hot spells. When you water your lawn, you should water it for as long as it takes to deliver 1 inch of water. An easy way to measure this is to put an empty tuna can on the lawn and time how long it takes for it to fill.

MLA REPORT

This method of watering promotes drought resistant lawns. It forces the grass’s roots to ‘follow’ the water deeper into the earth. Instead of having the roots near the surface, they become well protected from heat and are able to use the water provided for a longer duration. Last year, I realized how much water my lawn was using and took measures to reduce it. I removed some of my lawn and replaced it with native, drought resistant plants. Removing lawn is a great way to reduce the amount of water needed in your garden while keeping your yard green. I encourage anyone interested in water friendly gardening and landscaping to contact our local Okanagan xeriscape organization. As we approach

another beautiful summer in Vernon, water conservation will continue to be one of our most important struggles. If each person reduces their water consumption a little, together we can make a big difference. For more information about water conservation visit the Ministry of Environment at http://www.env.gov. bc.ca/wsd/ and the Okanagan Basin Water Board at http://www. obwb.ca/.

Spots still open for popular charity golf tournament Morning Star Staff

A charity golf tournament is still hoping for a full roster. Participants are needed for the North Okanagan Community Life Society’s 19th annual Charity Golf Classic Friday at the Vernon Golf and Country Club. “There is still room available for golfers and we hope to see an influx of registrations,” said Garry Molitwenik, executive director. “The Classic is always a terrific event and we look forward to the continued support of the community.” Funds raised will go towards programs that support developmentally disabled adults. There is space for a total of 144 golfers and there is a chance to win more than $100,000 in prizes for teams and individuals. The Classic actually gets underway Thursday at 6 p.m. with a team draw, barbecue and caddy auction. “A number of celebrities and dignitaries from throughout the North Okanagan have volunteered their time to be caddies and we are appreciative of their support,” said Molitwenik. Caddies include MLA Eric Foster; RCMP Supt. Reg Burgess; the mayors of Vernon, Lumby, Spallumcheen, Armstrong and Enderby; North Okanagan Regional District chairman Herman Halvorson; Vernon deputy fire chief Lawrie Skolrood and representatives from Kiss FM, Sun FM and The Morning Star.

It takes two to make Quaternity Local composer teams up with his partner in life and music for Okanagan Symphony commission KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Rodgers and Hammerstein, Gilbert and Sullivan, Ahrens and Flaherty. Longtime musical collaborations between lyricists and composers have resulted in some of most hummed tunes of all time. Coldstream’s Imant Raminsh, known for his compositions that have been performed by choral groups and orchestras around the world, has a not-so secret partner in his wife, Becky Strube. The pair have written a number of commissioned compositions together, and this weekend the world premiere of their latest major work for orchestra and voice will be heard throughout the Okanagan. Quaternity: A Cantata of Seasons will be performed by the Okanagan Symphony at its season closer, Ode to Joy, Sunday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. The symphony will also perform Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, and will be joined by a 110-voice massed choir, including singers from throughout the Okanagan as well as a 35-voice group from the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus, along with guest soloists, to bring both masterworks to life. The commission to write Quaternity came two years ago, when OSO musical director Rosemary Thomson wanted to use the same large vocal and instrumental forces as Beethoven’s Ninth on stage to celebrate the symphony’s 50-year anniversary. The OSO along with partners, the Richard Eaton Singers of Edmonton, Montreal’s St. Lawrence Choir, the Winnipeg Philharmonic and the Niagara Chorus, hired Raminsh to do the job. Although he has received commissions worldwide, this premiere celebrates Raminsh’s first major Okanagan commission, as well as the first time he has received funding from the Canada Council for the Arts. “I stepped back to look at it and realized what an extraordinary project this was to create a work on the same program and paired with Beethoven’s Ninth,” said the composer, who has another one

heading Four Seasons Poetry Collection. “I know to some it may seem Imant pulled me out of the woodwork in advising the OSO to commission me for this major work, but previously I was published in anthologies in the U.S. and Canada and had published some books. The OSO could rest a bit easier knowing my submission had to be vetted by the Canada Council in order to get the grant.” Raminsh will be in the orchestra pit as second violinist with the symphony when Quaternity is premiered, while Strube will be in the audience with the couple’s daughter Lisa, who has just completed her studies at the University of Victoria, and Raminsh’s sisters, who are coming from Toronto to attend the event. “I’ve heard it during dress rehearsal and Rosemary (Thomson) has put her energy and exuberance into the piece. She’s getting the vocalists to stress all the lyrics and has commented how the words have matched perfectly with the music. It’s been enlivening to hear the singers perform it,” PHOTOS SUBMITTED said Raminsh.

Arts Shakespeare gets Seuss-style spin Morning Star Staff

Take the silliness of Seussical the Musical and mix it with one of the Bard’s most tragic of tales, and you have just a taste of 27th Street Theatre Company’s Actors Showcase 2010. W.L. Seaton Secondary School drama students from Grades 9 to 12 are showcasing their talents in the evening of three one-act plays next week. The show’s headliner is The Seussification of Romeo and Juliet, which is Seaton’s entry into this week’s Summerland Good Will Shakespeare Festival. Directed and produced by Seaton drama teacher Brittany McMillan and performed by Seaton’s senior acting class, the play is a reinvention of Shakespeare’s story on the starcrossed lovers and their entourage who pontificate with a Dr. Seuss rhyming scheme. Written by Peter Bloedel, the play makes Shakespeare more accessible for all audiences, said McMillan. “When I found this script, I was very excited. It is a combination of classic Shakespeare and contemporary Dr. Seuss,” she said. “I find this play makes Shakespeare more accessible for the general public whether you are seven or 97. I presented it to my senior acting class and they loved it. We have been working on this for the past couple months and we really strived to keep it fun and cartoonish.” Brooke Haberstock and Alex Hayes keep things lively throughout as the play’s narrators. They are the equivalent to (Cat in the Hat’s) Thing 1 and Thing 2, said McMillan. “The play is Romeo and Juliet for your inner child,” said

Haberstock. “My favourite part of this show has been the fact that I could work so closely with Brooke and put our ridiculous sense of humour to use. It was a lot of fun to be silly and rambunctious,” added Hayes. Opening the evening of one acts is the comedy Sure Thing, which examines how relationships between men and women begin, and how the simple ring of a bell can mean a fresh start. Written by David Ives, the mature-themed play features Grade 10 acting students Paige Haberstock and Fraser Hamilton, who co-direct and take on the lead roles. Second on the roster is Cotton

The Actors Showcase runs Monday and Tuesday, May 10 and 11 in Seaton’s 27th Street Theatre. Doors open at 7 p.m. and the show begins at 7:30 p.m. Admission is $6 per student/ senior and $8 per adult.

Westside gallery opens with new exhibit Morning Star Staff

With the Terrace Mountain forest fire now a distant memory, artist Carolina Sanchez de Bustamante has re-opened the doors to her Ashpa Naira Gallery for its fourth season. Closed abruptly after last summer’s fire spread, the gallery, located north of Fintry on the west side of Okanagan Lake, is currently presenting the exhibition 3 Artistas, featuring three females artists with three different perspectives.

Yael Krakowski is showing her hand-made jewelry that goes beyond ornamental, while Carin Covin has her contemplative paintings on display. Showcasing her sculptures with a feminine strength is Petronella van der Berg, who says, “the work has a depth to it that goes beyond its physical presence.” The exhibition continues to June 27. Ashpa Naira is open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday to Sunday. Admission is free. For directions and more information, visit www.ashpanairagallery.com.

Vernon Jazz Society

With more than 12 musicians on stage, the Vernon Jazz Club presents an incredible evening of great music with Doug Grant’s G-Force, Jamm, Inc. and The Silhouettes Saturday night. Doug Grant Sr. plans an evening of “up-tempo, toe-tapping tunes.” “The theme for the evening will be a cruise ship tour with music from ports around the world,” he said. “Most music will be hit songs and standards from the ‘50s like Sweet Georgia Brown, Cherokee, and Caravan, as well as Andrews Sisters’ favourites such as BoogieWoogie Bugle Boy, Oh Johnny, and South American Way.” The three groups’ musical styles vary from the jazz standards of G-Force, to the vocal harmonies of The Silhouettes, to the swing, blues, rock, and pop of Jamm, Inc. Yet all these styles trace their roots to the early blues and jazz musicians. Grant Sr. is definitely a force to be reckoned with on the jazz scene, with more than 60 years of performing experience. “I grew up during the era of the big bands, listening to the music of Benny Goodman, Woody Herman, Duke Ellington, Gene Krupa, and Harry James,” he recalled. “By 1948 I was playing drums in various jazz and blues groups in and around Montreal.” Grant Sr. passed on passion for the drums to his children.

The Grant family, Carolyn, Doug Jr., Doug Sr., Tunie, Bob and Ian, bring musical guests to a drum-heavy night at the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. “I have always been a collector of jazz and blues records, and our four children all learned to play drums to the music from my collection.” Doug Jr. was the drummer for the popular group Doug and the Slugs for many years and currently plays with the Vancouver-based Big Radio, and is busy in the recording studio. This gig will feature three generations of Grant family drummers with Grant Sr.’s other sons, Ian and Bob, and grandson, Taylor, joining him on stage. Ian is currently featured with two Calgarybased bands, The Remones and God Boy. Bob is just completing his second year of playing on cruise ships, with tours of the Mediterranean and Caribbean, from Spain to South America, and Alaska to the Antarctic. Twenty years ago daughter Carolyn formed The Silhouettes highlighting Andrew

Sisters’ hits. She’s created a special version of The Silhouettes for this gig featuring her daughter Mallory and friend Laura Davison. Special guest, mother Tunie Grant, will join Carolyn and Mallory to sing Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree. Jamm, Inc. is led by baritone saxophonist Colin Perry, with Bob Grant on drums and trumpet, Rob Moore on guitar, and Gerrit Swartz on electric bass, with the entire band on vocals. They have been entertaining on cruise ships for several years. Jazz club favourites bassist Bernie Addington and saxophonist Sandy Cameron will also be featured for the evening. Naturally, with six drummers on stage there will be several drum features including a “drum battle.” “The reason that we have so much fun is that we all share the joy of playing any and all styles of music, and the excitement of spon-

A bike ride in Armstrong and Spallumcheen will not only kick off a special week, but will include the opening of a new recreational facility. A dock for boating, bird watching and picnics will officially open on Otter Lake at Scott Park at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday. As a prelude, and a kick-off to Bike To Work and School week in the two communities, two bike trains leading to the dock will be held. One departs the Township of Spallumcheen office, the other leave from Armstrong city hall – both at 10:30 a.m. – and both arrive at the dock. Both trains are open to all and following the opening ceremonies, people can enjoy snacks and water, and canoes have been borrowed from Pleasant Valley Secondary School if people want to go for a paddle on the lake. The event is being put on by the Armstrong/ Spallumcheen Active Communities group. Lifejackets will be provided. The Scott family donated the park to the community just for recreational purposes.

It’s time to celebrate the arrival of spring in local orchards. The third annual Apple Blossom Fest will be held Saturday at Davison Orchards. “We should be in full bloom by mid week which will make a great show of blossoms for the orchard tours,” said Tamra Davison, with Davison Orchards. “Grandpa Bob will be driving the Johnny Popper Apple train out to the orchard to show off the orchard in bloom and do a little educating along the way.” The farm will also be hosting a tasting of local produce and food. Eleanor Deines will be selling quilted items and crafts, with a portion of proceeds going to the North Okanagan Hospice Society. The Apple Blossom Fest runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Robinson gets Vipers going BY GRAEME CORBETT Staff Writer

DAUPHIN, MAN. – It wasn’t pretty, but the Vernon Vipers found a way to post their first win at the Royal Bank Cup Junior A Hockey Championship Sunday night at Credit Union Place. A day after a disappointing 6-5 overtime loss to the host Kings in their opener, the Snakes got a gritty two-goal performance from veteran forward David Robinson to double the La Ronge Ice Wolves 4-2 before 1,300 fans. With the two clubs deadlocked 1-1 after 20 minutes, Robinson netted goals three minutes apart in the second period, including the winner on a powerplay, to put Vernon in full control The feisty Vernon forward also did his best to get under the Saskatchewan champions’ skin. A three-year veteran with the WHL Chilliwack Bruins before joining his hometown Vipers in January, Robinson is at his best when he plays the antagonist. It is a role he relishes. “That’s just the way I play. They probably don’t like me too much over there, but that’s when I play my best is when I’m in all those scrums and going to the net hard and getting in guys’ faces,� grinned the tenacious 170-pounder, adding it felt good to get on the scoresheet. “It’s good for the confidence to get producing a little bit. I haven’t produced the way I wanted to throughout the playoffs so to get a couple on the board tonight and one yesterday (against Dauphin), it helps the confidence.� The Ice Wolves tried to slow the game down by unleashing their physical style of play, while the Vipers turned to their skill game to push the pace and stay a step ahead. Jonathan Milhouse opened the scoring when he tipped defenceman Curtis Gedig’s point shot past Joel Danyluk at 3:56 of the first period. Just 28 seconds later, La Ronge’s Doug Lindensmith equalized, beating Graeme Gordon with a backhand wraparound, bouncing his shot off the Viper netminder’s leg. Aaron Enns, a former Nanaimo Clipper, earned an assist. Vernon has developed a worrisome habit of not being able to protect a lead lately. They squandered a pair of two-goal leads against Dauphin, and have had similar slipups earlier in the playoffs. Robinson, named Vernon’s game MVP, says it’s just a matter of

Viper forward Sahir Gill keeps his eye on the puck while being double-teamed by La Ronge’ Ice Wolves’ Taylor Piller (left) and Dan Conacher during Royal Bank Cup hockey action Sunday night at Credit Union Place in Dauphin, Man. paying attention to detail. “We’ve just been harping on one another that when we get up by one or two we’ve got to play solid defensively and play that simple game. We’re not used to giving up six goals in a night and Ferns (Vernon coach Mark Ferner) was pretty disappointed in us and so were we.� Added Ferner: “The first period, I think our guys were tentative to go out and play. They tried to be very physical with us and when that happens you need to make the puck do all the work. Even though it wasn’t what we felt was our typical game, we just needed to find a way to win tonight and we did that.� The Vipers had more than a minute of 5-on-3 hockey late in the first period after Wolves’ captain Dustin Stevenson took an interference call with teammate Robert

Monfore already off for holding. But the Vipers managed little in the way of offence. Stevenson, a smooth skating defenceman who recently inked a three-year entry level contract with the Washington Capitals, delivered a crushing open-ice hit on the Vipers’ Pat McGillis early in the second period. McGillis left the ice to get stitches to his face, but returned later. There was a trio of disputable goals in the game – referee Jeff Hopkins awarded two in Vernon’s favour, including Robinson’s second goal as he crashed the net in a goalmouth scramble. The other came at 7:48 of the third period when Viper defenceman Adam Thompson tapped in a loose puck to netminder Adam Bartko’s right (Danyluk left the game with an apparent leg injury at the end of the second period). Hopkins discussed the call with his linesmen before

awarding the goal, earning a solid rebuke from the boisterous Ice Wolves’ cheering section. Hopkins also waved off what might have been a possible La Ronge goal, as a pack of players jammed Gordon’s crease. While probably frustrated by the calls, Ice Wolves’ head coach Bob Beatty didn’t dwell on the happenings. “That’s kind of like closing the gate after the cows get out. We could dispute it for a long time but I don’t think there’s any profit in that. We’ll take our lumps. Some games you get breaks and some games you don’t and hopefully we’re due for some.� Beatty praised his squad, who finished just eight games over .500 during the regular season, for staying focused and for pressing the action in the third period.

Vernon United’s Khiran O’Neil takes on Kelowna #2’s Spencer Loyd in a one on one battle for the ball during U16 Rep Boys soccer action Sunday at Marshall Field.

Dodds finds the net Morning Star Staff

Vernon United battled Kelowna’s A team to a 1-1 draw in Thompson Okanagan Rep Soccer League Under 16/17 girls action Sunday in Kelowna. Vernon came out flying right off the opening whistle, applying great pressure on the Kelowna defence. At 10 minutes, a string of great passing starting at the back resulted in a well-placed shot by Kirsten Dodds to give Vernon a 1-0 lead. However, Vernon relaxed after the goal and Kelowna took over the play, applying constant pressure but failing to penetrate the rock-solid defence of Summer Jespersen, Mary Bennett, Shelby Price, Cayla Brown and Katelyn Dyck. Dayna Epp stood out by making her physical presence known. Kelowna scored with 10 minutes remaining as a result of poor marking by Vernon. Kirman Nijjar and Alex Gowie were standouts for United.

The Vernon United U13 girls lost 2-0 Sunday to the Penticton Pinnacles on a blustery Marshall Field. Penticton opened the scoring in the fifth minute when a wind-swept cross ended in the Vernon net. Penticton doubled their lead at 10 minutes on a 15-yard strike. With the wind at their backs in the second half, Vernon tried in vain to respond, but with Penticton defending with 10 girls behind the ball every attempt to penetrate the Penticton half of the field was stifled. Vernon again dominated the outside flanks with outside midfielders Aryanna Jacura, Erin Sakamoto and Riley Martian frequently making forays deep into Penticton territory. The match featured physical play on all sides, resulting in numerous injury timeouts. It was Vernon’s first loss in league play.

Vernon United shut down host Kamloops 2-0 in U13 boys Rep soccer play Sunday. Vernon’s first goal featured a beauty three-way passing play, with Zack Kronbauer playing it wide to Liam Ross who undressed a Kamloops defender and slid a soft pass through for player-of-the-match Cameron Hitch for a one timer. Vernon’s second goal came from strong work in the corner by Matt Kruetz, who crossed the ball far post to Sam Bozak to finish with a nice left foot shot. Cole Shoemaker posted his fourth shutout of the year. In U18 girls house action, Parnell’s TV & Appliance tripped up Smart & Associates 6-0. Player of the game Lindsey Krause got things started for Parnell’s on a free kick from far outside the 18 with a magnificent blast up and over the keeper’s head. Jennie Lipski kept it going from there on a solo effort to make it 2-0. Carol Ann Bourdon (Cab) then buried a hard bullet into the left side. Leyenda Pettit took a shot but was stopped by the goalie with Lipski there to pick up the rebound. Birthday girl Dana Lazar created the fifth goal on a free kick, sending it up and past a wall of defenders. Silken Smart, from Lazar, completed the Parnell scoring.

Kings rally for OT win Continued from B1 “We probably outplayed them in the third period and the first period was give or take. We slowed our pace a little bit at times in the second and you can’t do that against a club that’s that explosive. But overall I’m pretty happy with the effort.” Lindensmith added a consolation goal late in the third period, but the Vipers were solid defensively to close out the game. “We gave it a 40-minute effort, but facing the RBC champs you’ve got to give it a full 60 all game,” said Lindensmith, a Michigan product. After an average game against Dauphin, Gordon rebounded with a solid 24-save showing against the Ice Wolves. The Kings served notice Saturday night they are a serious contender to be the eighth host team to win the national title. Dauphin erased a pair of two-goal deficits to upend the Vipers in an overtime thriller before a packed house (2,135 fans) in their tournament opener. Kings’ defenceman Mathew Backhouse fired the winner 42 seconds into the first overtime period, beating Gordon with a point shot through traffic. The loss halted the Vipers’ nine-game win streak at the RBC, dating back to 1999 when Vernon won in Yorkton, Sask. The Snakes silenced the home crowd in the first period with goals five minutes apart by Kellen Jones and Braden Pimm, who redirected Curtis Gedig’s powerplay point shot at 15:06.

Colton Graf answered for Dauphin a minute later to reignite the crowd, and Cody Esposito, on an early second-period powerplay, made it 2-2. Milhouse, who filled in admirably for injured Connor Jones on a line with Kellen and Sahir Gill, says the Vipers have struggled with holding onto leads lately. “We gotta look deep. It’s gut-check time. We need to bear down and win battles, win races and score goals,” said Milhouse. Milhouse set up Kellen in the slot with a quick pass from the corner for the first goal. Kellen struck again from the slot to make it 3-2 Vernon 7:27 into the second period, completing a sweet triangle tic-tac-toe play started by Milhouse behind the net. “I’ve watched them play all year. They’re both really good players and it’s easy to play with them,” said Milhouse. “I’ve just got to find open spots and they give me the puck pretty easily. It’s a real treat playing with them.” Mike Collins gave Vernon another twogoal lead midway through the second frame when he tapped home the rebound off Cole Ikkala’s shot on a 3-on-2 rush. But the Kings just wouldn’t go away. Their so-called checking line of Troy Hunter, exVancouver Giant Mitch Czibere and Esposito – they figured in each of the Kings’ regulation goals – pulled Dauphin even with a pair of goals early in the third frame. Hunter had a couple whacks at a loose puck in front of Gordon, who struggled with his rebound control all night, before finally burying one

Viper defenceman Garrett Noonan closes in on the Dauphin Kings’ Ryan Dreger in Vernon’s Royal Bank Cup opener Saturday night at Credit Union Place. on the first shift of the period. Esposito, with his second goal, made it 4-4 when he beat Gordon (29 saves) low glove side. “It’s a huge confidence booster for us. It’s a huge team win to go down two goals twice and come back to win,” said Hunter, in his second year with the Kings. “We were going to the net a lot, a lot of guys were going to

the paint and getting those tough rebound goals.” Hunter, a 19-year-old Virden, Man. product, says playing with a couple WHL veterans makes his job a lot easier. “They’ve (Czibere and Esposito) played at the next level and they know how to win these big games. It’s pretty simple playing with those two players.”

Tigers settle for 6-6 draw Morning Star Staff

ROGER TEPPER PHOTO

Armstrong Shamrocks’ goalie Jeremy Chard gets a piece of Vernon Re/Max Tiger Ryan Landels’ shot as Landels goes through the goalie crease untouched during junior lacrosse action Saturday night at the Wesbild Centre.

The Vernon Re/Max Tigers settled for a 6-6 draw with the South Okanagan Flames in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League action Monday night in Summerland. The Tigers surrendered three goals in the final seven minutes of the penalty-filled affair. Miles Jespersen paced Re/Max with 2+1, while Craig Bigsby also scored twice and singles came from Riley Soleway and Steve Kolasko. Flames’ captain Tyler Prentice supplied 2+2, while singles went to Cody Cervo, Quinn Ramsay, Mitch Warton and Ben Whiles. “We played OK,� said Tigers’ co-coach Rich Zecchel. “Josh Point got his first start (in goal) and was real solid. We have to get better at everything in general and the Kamloops Venom will be a good test for us Saturday night. We have a group of good kids who listen

well. We have good skill and good speed and we’re only going to get better.� The Tigers (2-0-1) took 33 penalty minutes, while the 0-1-1 Flames were assessed 45 minutes. Ryan Oliverius of the Tigers won a close decision over Jason Stead in a late scrap. Vernon outshot South Okanagan 46-35 while enjoying period leads of 3-1 and 5-2. The Tigers iced the Armstrong Shamrocks 10-6 in their home opener Saturday night at Wesbild Centre. Last year’s MVP, Josh Phillips, earned the win. Brooks Christensen leads the Tigers with five goals and eight points.

Dutcher a treat for Camels Morning Star Staff

Just barely old enough to play in the Capri Insurance Okanagan Menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Over 45 Soccer League, Dave Dutcher is already pretty much a lock to win Rookie of the Year honours. The slim, aggressive, acrobatic keeper made a handful of super stops, including tipping two balls off the bar and out of harmâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way, as the Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels grounded Okanagan Spring Brewery 2-0 Monday night at blustery, rainy and cold Marshall Field #3. Dutcher, who earned Man of the Match just ahead of midfielder Rob Hulstein, has recorded four straight shutouts for the undefeated humpbacks. Midfielder Al Betton fooled Spring keeper John Peale with a high 27-yard shot early in the second half. Winger Rick Raber added an insurance goal on a great solo run with two minutes remaining. Spring, whose Man of the Match was defender Darrell Buckham, fell to 2-2. At Marshall Field #1, Lake Country toppled the shortstaffed Big O Tire Ogopogos 2-0. Forward Leo Nadeau, betrayed by a pulled hamstring, played goal and did quite well, consistently catching shots by the high-powered Lake Country offence, facing at least 20 shots or more in the first half. Lake Country scored with 10 minutes left in the second half, with a high cross from the right side of the field headed in by a Big O defender. They added a late insurance goal. Big O regular keeper Yogi Kongsdorf played forward and created a few great scoring opportunities with teammate Rob Ross, who pulled his hamstring in the second half and left his team shorthanded for

the rest of the game. Big O dropped to 1-2-1. In Salmon Arm, the Silver Stars brushed back the hosts 2-1 to improve to 3-1. Glen Verdurmen, playing in midfield, found himself all alone in front of goal some 18 yards out and hoofed the ball over the Stars keeper. The 3-1 Stars struggled in the first half and lost striker John Garner with a pulled groin. With the wind at their backs in the second, the Stars played more disciplined and equalized when Brian Eso volleyed from 18 yards to the keeperâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high left. Mark Hopkins just missed on a strong header for the Stars, who went ahead when Kenny Rathâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cross from the left side was met with a superb, twisting header from Ian Murphy. North Country Appraisals Kickers shut down Pushor Mitchell 4-0 in a battle of top Kelowna teams. Greg Bevandick (2), Will Kruiper and Matt Cherrille scored for the Kickers. Both teams are 3-1. In 35+ menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s action, veteran sniper John Orton scored twice as Vernon Toyota grounded the Kelowna Rented Mules 4-0 at Rutland #3. Edmund Lee and John Davies also scored as Toyota went to 3-1 and the Mules fell to 0-5. Fountain Tire of Kelowna clipped the Vernon Liquor Store Camels 3-2 at Marshall #2. The tiremen gained their first win of the season by taking a 2-0 lead by the seven-minute mark and adding a third goal, on a penalty kick, at 15 minutes. Mike Daly scored both Camel goals in the second half, one on a penalty kick and the other on a feed from Dan Ondzik. The Fountain Tire keeper got his fist on a Rod Valdivieso penalty shot.

CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR

Christine Lishman, Whitevalley Community Resource Centre volunteer program co-ordinator, says local agencies are working together to use their strengths for the community.

Centre brings groups together CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Whitevalley Community Resource Centre is providing a way for local groups to meet and work together and the organizations are saying it’s just what they need. “When the groups get together they are glad to hear that they aren’t the only ones and that they have the same challenges,” said Christine Lishman, volunteer program co-ordinator, Whitevalley Community Resource Centre. The centre has organized workshops to help community groups with organization, volunteer management and service delivery. “We see real value in supporting other community entities to make the whole community stronger,” said Gay Jewitt, executive director, Whitevalley Community Resource Centre.

One of the workshops was on how to run a successful meeting, including executive positions and their responsibilities. “We’re all trying to make a difference and when we can link better and share our expertise and know what the other groups are doing we can all do a better job,” said Jewitt. The Strategic Planning workshop was also well-attended with representatives from local government, service groups and churches from Lumby and Cherryville. “In a small community there are only so many resources and we all have to work together to recognize the resources we have and the best way to use them,” said Lishman. The Community Volunteer Program grew out of the workshops as a way to gather information on local volunteer opportunities and needs. Each organization that wants volunteers has filled out

a form about the organization and what is expected from each volunteer position as well as any training provided and other information. People who want to do volunteer work can come in to the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre and look through the book to find the opportunities that interest them. There are short- and long-term volunteer opportunities available. The centre has also hosted a breakfast for Chamber of Commerce and Village of Lumby staff to talk about goals and ways to work together. “Everyone is a lot more aware and we are starting to see partnerships formed and groups sharing expertise and resources,” said Lishman. For more information about the Whitevalley Community Resource Centre call 250-547-8866.

Falun Dafa takes to Polson Park Morning Star Staff

May 13, 2010 is the 18th anniversary of the introduction of Falun Dafa (also known as Falun Gong) to the public. “Falun Dafa is an advanced exercise and meditation practice of mind, body and spirit that has brought health and well-being to people across Canada,” said Joy Wang, with the B.C. Falun Dafa Association. Based on ancient Chinese values, Falun Dafa emphasizes the principles of Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance in practitioners’ lives. The practice comprises a set of five gentle tranquil exercises, similar to Tai Chi, in order to attain a healthy body, mind and spirit. “More than 100 million practitioners all over the world have benefited tremendously through Falun Dafa,” said Wang.

Since its introduction to the public May 13, 1992 by its founder, Li Hongzhi, Falun Dafa has received worldwide recognition for its efforts to promote harmony, tolerance and compassion in society. Falun Dafa Month has received thousands of awards, proclamations and congratulatory letters for the benefits, both spiritual and physical, that it has provided to its practitioners. “Even though persecution against Falun Dafa was launched in China July 20, 1999 by the former Chinese president Jiang Zemin, its popularity has not only remained undiminished but has instead popularized worldwide,” said Wang. Kelowna practitioners are offering free classes in Vernon so people who are interested in this ancient practice can experience Falun Dafa, in Polson Park on Saturday and again on May 15, near the pavilion, from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Life Now Is The Time To Treat Your ALLERGIES!

Columbine adds colour

W

hen I visited the farmers’ market recently, I saw something that many fruit producers should be putting to work. It is a starling trap. The bird enters and a mechanical device prevents him from leaving. If another species such as a woodpecker or a wren should enter, it can be let go. The right time of year to use this trap is early in the season,

before many of the birds have returned. Starlings are always looking for nesting spots even early in the season. When Okanagan Gardens and Roses meets May 10, a very interesting guest speaker will fill us in on the pollution that is entering Kal Lake and where most of it origi-

nates. Since much of our drinking water comes from Kal Lake, it is very important to keep the lake free of as many pollutants as Fred Lyall possible. There has been a real good display in many spots around town of tulips and daffodils. As soon as the petals fall, be sure to remove the seed pods. The energy that

IN THE GARDEN

would go into producing seed is taken up by the rest of the plant, which helps the bulb regain its vigor for the next season. Among those earlyblooming plants are the great variety of colours in the Aquilegia group, more commonly known as Columbine. They grow in the forest, mostly a dark blue short-spurred one that can be grown in your garden. Many of the newer hybrids are

Dental clinic will provide needed service Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Community Dental Access Clinic is getting closer to reality with board members looking at possible locations downtown. “We have seen some spaces that might be suitable with renovations. Once we have a space, we can draw up our plans and apply for the larger grants for the funding that will be used to do the renovations,” said Laine Lowe, executive director of the board of the Community Dental Access committee which has been working for four years to provide low-cost dental services for low-income people. “The hard part now is the several calls we get each day from people with dental problems and having to tell them there is nothing we can do for them.” The Dental Access Program had been providing emergency assessments and referrals of urgent cases to dentists. That program had to stop in April 2009 when the grant ran out and there were more clients than dentists taking part in the program could help. Lowe would like to hear now from anyone who would like to volunteer services like carpentry, electrical and plumbing skills for the renovation to take place this fall. Evidence of this kind of community support for the clinic will help with the grant applications. The clinic will serve people who are working at low-income jobs and have no dental insurance as well as seniors and children not covered by the provincial Healthy

Kids Program. The cost of services would be based on income. Many seniors do not have any dental coverage. Cathy is one. She goes to the dentist only when something is really hurting and puts off the regular cleaning and check-ups she knows she should have as preventive measures. “I called to see if there was something for people on low or fixed incomes like pensions,” she said

in a phone interview. “I’m retired and even though I don’t have all my teeth I know I should get them cleaned. I have a chipped tooth now that should be looked at but I know it will be expensive. I would just like to see something low cost that I could afford. Just because you are retired, you still need to take care of your teeth. It doesn’t seem fair that there should not be access across the board for something this

important to your health. That’s why we need this low-cost clinic.” Lowe said there are low-cost dental access clinics operating in eight other communities in the province. She and the other board members are hopeful that there can be a clinic in Vernon by this fall or early winter. For more information, to volunteer or to make a donation to the clinic, call Lowe at 250549-5742.

Chicken soup soothes

W

hen making chicken soups, consider these tips. Always start with cold water. When tasting or adjusting the flavours, a stainless steel spoon is best, as wood or silver skew the taste. Chicken soup needs salt so if that’s a problem for you, the soup will be rather bland. When making from scratch, use fresh chicken and don’t boil it, but rather simmer gently, as boiling will toughen the meat and cloud the broth. And lastly, cool the broth or soup completely (set pot in ice water) before storing in refrigerator or freezer. The following soup recipe is a cheater, starting with a preroasted chicken and a box of chicken broth; even so, it’s a good one. And who doesn’t like chicken and dumplings? My recipe today uses a few different ingredients but they make the dish superb, so try not to substitute. Hearty Chicken Soup 1 whole supermarket roasted chicken 2 tbsp. oil 1 medium onion, cut into medium dice 1 large carrot, peeled and sliced 1/4-inch thick 1 celery stalk, sliced 1/4-inch thick 1 litre chicken broth 1 litre cold water Salt 2 bay leaves 1/2 tsp. dried thyme 2 cups (3 ounces) hearty egg noodles Ground black pepper 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley leaves Remove chicken meat from bones and skin. Shred chicken into bite-size pieces and set aside. Discard skin, cartilage and bones. In large stock pot at medium heat, add oil, chopped onion, carrot and celery. Sauté, stirring constantly, until onions are translucent not brown. Add chicken broth and water and bring to boil on high heat. Add 1 tsp. salt and bay leaves. Lower heat to medium; add thyme and shredded chicken. Simmer until vegetables are tender and flavours meld, about 15 to 20 minutes. Add noodles and cook until tender; check package direc-

Slip skins scrubbed off and press through 2 tsp. salt 1/8 tsp. grated nutmeg potato ricer into large 2 large boneless, skinless bowl.

Stir in thyme and sage, then stock and bay leaf. Let sauce come to simmer, then add chicken breasts and thighs along with accumulated juices. Cover, reduce heat to low, and cook 20 to 25 minutes, or until thighs are cooked through. Meanwhile, gently stir 1/3 cup flour and cornstarch into potatoes with wooden spoon, just until smooth. Do not beat. Discard bay leaf from stew. Scoop up scant 1/4 cups of potato mixture and lay them on top of chicken mixture. Do not cover the stew completely with dumplings, rather let them sit like clouds on its surface. Cover and steam dumplings 10 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes, then serve. Yield: 4 servings.

Activity

A fully-funded program for small business and not-for-profits

Horoscope BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) If you walk around with a chip on your shoulder today, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take much to get someone to knock it off. Remember, temperament sets the tone that others will respond to.

PUZZLE NO. 203

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Giving someone a piece of your mind will give you momentary appeasement. However, it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long before the damage you incur will have to be addressed. CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Some days are worse than others, and today youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll need to be doubly careful about protecting your prized possessions. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t leave anything lying around tempting others to be dishonest.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 091123

AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) The company you keep could be responsible for you having either a peaceful or strife-ridden day. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let the behavior of another cause you to speak out in a manner that would tarnish your image. PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) Be time-conscious and try to maintain a sensible schedule, because if you leave important tasks until the last minute, your nervous system could have quite a breakdown. ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Everything might look good, but nevertheless still guard against inclinations to take risks. The odds can stack up against you before you know it.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) Independence can be an admirable quality, but not when it is carried to extremes. It could cause you to be overly insistent about having your way, resulting in all kinds of hostile responses.

YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY Provided you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take on more than you can handle, your chances for success in the year ahead look better than usual. You can achieve whatever it is that you want if you do things one at a time and never get overloaded.

VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) There are two conditions that could negatively affect your work today. The first one is concentrating on the clock instead of your duties, and the second one is not watching what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing at all.

HORMONES

LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) If you find yourself at odds with a friend and do not let the issue drop, it is likely to develop into something far greater than either intended. Be the bigger person and let him/her have the last word. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) Do whatever you can to put a stop to any disturbing influence that disrupts the tranquility of the household, even if this means barring the door to a troublemaker. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) Watch your tongue, so that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say anything that could put you on a collision course with another. When up against a strongly opinionated person, simply close your mouth. CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Clear up all old obligations before assuming any new ones. If you monitor your resources realistically, you should be able to keep your budget intact and very healthy.

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

Bridge by Phillip Alder Albert Einstein said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The grand aim of all science is to cover the greatest number of empirical facts by logical deduction from the smallest number of hypotheses or axioms.â&#x20AC;? The aim in a bridge grand is to use logical deduction to win all of the tricks with the smallest number of risks. How should South play in seven spades after West leads the heart king? Many of us would open that North hand with one diamond. Having passed, though, he described his hand well on the second round with a passedhand jump-shift. Three diamonds was ďŹ t-showing, promising at least fourcard spade support, ďŹ veplus respectable diamonds and a maximum pass.

South might have leapt straight to seven spades because real bridge players do not need Blackwood. But he decided to check that partner had the diamond ace. (If North had shown one ace, South was going to assume it was in diamonds.) South could have impulsively discarded his club loser on dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace. However, before leaping, declarer deduced the danger -- a 4-0 diamond break. He had two other choices at trick one. He could discard a diamond on the heart ace. Then he could establish a long diamond for a club discard. Or, the line that I prefer, he could play low from the dummy and ruff in hand,

Buy any bag of

draw trumps, and start on diamonds. When South sees the 4-0 split, he will understand the necessity for a diamond discard on the heart ace. Note that pitching the club nine at trick one costs the contract.

Joyce Aileen Gould March 10, 1925 - April 27, 2010 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our Mom (Nana Jo) at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, Vernon, BC. Joyce was born and raised in Vancouver, B.C. and lived in several northern communities before settling in Golden with her family in 1964. Joyce was the granddaughter of Golden settlers John McHattie and Ida May (Goode) and Armstrong settlers William and Minnie Horrex. She is predeceased by her husband Roy Gould and her sisters Shirley and Dell. Joyce is survived by her three children: Leslie van der Meer (Homme), Tom Batten, and Barb Sandberg (Carl); four grandsons and ďŹ ve great grandchildren; six nieces, one nephew; and many friends. Joyce travelled extensively throughout her lifetime and always had many tales to tell of her adventures. She enjoyed family times, lunches with friends, curling and good conversation. She was a member of the Eastern Star, Worthy Matron of Golden Chapter #25 in 1970-71 and a member of Lansdowne Chapter 72 in Enderby. In 2001, Joyce retired to live at AbbeyďŹ eld House in Armstrong, BC. The family wishes to thank all the people of AbbeyďŹ eld House who provided Mom with support and care. A special thanks to Esther Webb for being our â&#x20AC;&#x153;Momâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Momâ&#x20AC;?. We also wish to thank Dr. M McKnight of Enderby and the staff at the Vernon Hospital 3 West for their care and compassion towards Mom and our family during a difďŹ cult time. Thank you to Interior Health for everything. Thank you to the Order of the Eastern Star for their love and support. Gone from us to her loved ones gone before, but Mom, you will be forever in our hearts. A Celebration of Life Tea will be held May 15, 2010 at 2 pm at AbbeyďŹ eld House (3725 Wood Ave, Armstrong, BC). In lieu o f ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations may be made to AbbeyďŹ eld House, Box 715, Armstrong, BC V0E 1B0
