Restrictions apply to all sources RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Water regulations apply to all Greater Vernon residents no matter what source they are on. While there had been some suggestion about applying restrictions differently between the Kalamalka Lake and Duteau Creek sources, North Okanagan Regional District officials say that hasn’t occurred. “It applies to the whole system,” said Arnold Badke, engineering general manager, of the current stage three status. “There has been no discussion amongst the board about (changing) that.” GVAC chairman Wayne Lippert has wanted recognition that Kal

“We are all in it together.” — Gyula Kiss Lake serves 75 per cent of the utility’s customers and it has adequate water supply. He says the utility has the ability to differentiate between Kal Lake and Duteau Creek, which has been impacted by low snowpack and reservoir levels. “One source can be put under restrictions when another is at a different level,” he said.

Reader’s Digest names

Director Gyula Kiss insists the water restrictions bylaw applies to all sources equally. “We are all in it together. We pay the same,” he said. “If it (equality) goes for payment then it should also go for the inconveniences.” Kiss is also concerned that supply in Kalamalka Lake won’t remain sustainable if the water it receives

from creeks and the ground is low. Recent rainfall has improved conditions in upland reservoirs, but it’s not known yet if restrictions will be downgraded from stage three to two. “We won’t get a reservoir reading until Tuesday,” said Badke, adding that there will have to be significant improvement before a change in stages is considered. “If there is any doubt, we will stay where we are.” Badke says the concern is about the remainder of the year and that a prolonged dry period could put significant strain on water resources. “Caution is still the word,” he said.

Any change on water restrictions now requires 36-hour public notice. Utility officials are also concerned about mudbogging and other activities in the Duteau watershed this long weekend. “It is a chargeable offence under the Forest and Range Act to do damage to the environment. Lakes, reservoirs, streams and wetlands are included,” said Renee Clark, NORD’s senior water quality technologist. “We encourage anyone that observes mud bogging or damage to the environment to call and report all poachers and polluters at 1-877-952-RAPP (7277) or *7277 on your cell.”

Morning Star Staff

A Vernon seniors residence is in the middle of a labour dispute. Members of the B.C. Government and Service Employees Union began picketing in front of Heritage Square on 27th Street Friday after 33 registered care aides were told to go home when they arrived for work. “They did not serve us any notice. They did not call us,” said Debra Critchley, BCGEU staff representative, of the actions taken by Kaigo Retirement Communities. “Why would our members be treated with such disrespect?” Kaigo officials say staff are being treated fairly. “They are at home with pay until the layoff notice takes effect,” said Laverne Bowe, managing director. About 40 care aids were notified in December and April that their jobs will be contracted out June 15 as Kaigo attempted to withdraw from the the Health Employers

Contracted care aids are now on site, although Bowman says there are still 17 BCGEU members in place until June 15. Critchley insists that being sent home before shift has been emotional for union members, some of whom have worked at Heritage Square for 20 years. “They haven’t even been given an opportunity to say goodbye to the residents. It’s heart-

breaking,” she said. “The workers are devastated not just because they are losing their jobs, but because they are worried about what the future holds for the seniors they have been caring for.” The BCGEU is looking at its legal options as a result of Kaigo’s decision to send the registered care aides home permanently. “We will make sure our members get paid until June 15,” said Critchley.

News Haslett named Woman of the Year CARA BRADY

Morning Star Staff

Surrounded by congratulations, cheers and tears, Woman of the Year 2010 Shelley Haslett made her way forward to accept the honour Thursday. “There are so many mixed emotions now,� she said of receiving the honour from Vernon Women in Business. “I must congratulate the other nominees. Just being nominated is honour enough and I thank Maureen Vincent for putting together the nomination package. One of the best things is to be able to thank all the important people in your life, including my parents, who have just moved here.� Haslett, who is described as courageous and contagious, is a Mary Kay senior director and former RCMP member. Her community involvement over many years includes Brownie leader, Relay for Life, the Hospice Christmas home tour, Bosom Buddies and Vernon Women in Business, to mention only some. “They suggested to us that we have an acceptance speech ready but I thought that was presumptuous. I’ve never been at a loss for words,� said Haslett, to laughter from supporters. “I don’t feel I’ve done anything big but I’ve done lots of little things. You just live once, so do the things

Gala was held at the Best Western Lodge with more than 250 people in attendance to support the 10 nominees, chosen for their outstanding community service and inspirational lives. The other nominees were Michelle Antonation, Daina Bull, Sharon MacKenzie, Cherie Montgomery, Samantha Plovie,

Kath Raeber, Cheryl Schmidt, Debbie Stoddard and Angela Yablonski. Past award recipients were present including Baritta Durward, who was recognized in 2009. Durward spoke about how being Woman of the Year changed her life. After an article about her appeared in a magazine, she

received an e-mail on her business website from the older brother she hadn’t seen in 30 years. “I had been told that he had been killed in a motorcycle accident but thanks to this wonderful award, I now have my brother back,� she said. Vernon Women in Business started in 1981 to provide women with an opportunity for business and social networking and now has more than 160 members of women in all types of business. The Woman of the Year Award has been presented since 1988 to honour a woman in the community, who is not necessarily a member of Vernon Women in Business, for her contributions. Haslett was presented with a City of Vernon parking pass, a diamond pendant by Gregory’s Fine Jewellery, flowers by Vernon Women in Business president Shannon MacNeill and the Woman of the Year trophy by Menza Bouwman. Betty Selin, emcee for the event, concluded the evening with something for each person to think about. “Next spring, look around you at your friends, family and coworkers and nominate someone for Woman of the Year,� she said. “We do need to recognize the people who make this community such an amazing place to live.�

Prison not a concern for neighbours RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Lumby’s most immediate neighbours aren’t worried about having a prison right next door. The village is investigating the possibility of becoming the site of a correctional facility, and that has generated interest among adjacent jurisdictions. “It could have a positive economic affect on the community,” said Rick Fairbairn, director for Whitevale, Trinity Valley and Mabel Lake. Fairbairn expects some of his constituents, and particularly those closest to Lumby, will wonder about security.

“I’d encourage anything to get jobs.” — Eugene Foisy “There will be questions but the village has provided opportunities to answer those questions. From the information they have received from other communities, facilities can have a positive affect,” he said. Eugene Foisy, Cherryville director, says some of his residents are just starting to consider the issue. “They’re hesitant

to say it’s a good thing until they know more about it,” he said. However, Foisy says Lumby’s proposal must be considered simply from an economic standpoint. “We’ve lost so much of the logging industry and young families are moving. Keeping the school becomes difficult,” he said. “I’d encourage anything to get jobs. I’m

glad Lumby brought it up so it can be looked at.” Communities to the west are also aware of Lumby lobbying the provincial government for a prison. “As long as the right (safety) procedures are put in place, it could benefit the North Okanagan. It would bring dollars in job-wise,” said Wayne Lippert, Vernon mayor. Lippert admits, though, that he would be concerned that inmates would relocate to Vernon once they had served their sentence. “It only takes one incident to make it tough on everyone.”

UBC bus route under review RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A possible expansion of a popular transit route is being examined further. The North Okanagan Regional District is being asked by B.C. Transit to add a second bus to the University of B.C. route. Financial information will be sent to the participating jurisdictions and board members will have a meeting to discuss the concept. “Right now, a lot of the information we have received from B.C. Transit is cursory,” Doug Dirk said director Doug Dirk. NORD was recently informed by B.C. Transit that there is interest in adding another bus that connects the North Okanagan with Kelowna. “This wasn’t included in our financial plan,” said David Sewell, the regional district’s finance general manager. “The challenge is to fund it this year and to commit to funding for the following year.” Sewell believes the cost for operating a second

bus could be $156,000 annually. “We don’t have that amount in reserves,” he said. During a recent presentation to the City of Vernon, B.C. Transit officials suggested the cost would be $112,000, the same as for the current vehicle on the road. The cost is split between the North Okanagan and Central Okanagan regional districts, with the city paying 10 per cent of the bill. Director Wayne Lippert isn’t sure why B.C. Transit’s request for funding for a second bus comes as a surprise. “The expectation always was we’d have to put on another bus,” he said, adding that the original goal for a new vehicle was 2009 and reserves would be considered. However, Sewell says that there isn’t a commitment from all of the function partners to fund such an initiative. “That strategic review hasn’t occurred yet,” he said. NORD is responsible for administering the bus to UBC but B.C. Transit has asked the City of Vernon to take on the function as a way of expediting decision-making.

Jim Garlick, Coldstream mayor, says he’s not opposed to a prison in Lumby. “The inmates won’t be just running around unattended,” he said. Garlick believes

employees at a facility could live in Coldstream, bolstering its tax base. “We haven’t had a lot of bright spots in job creation so that would help with that situation,” he said.

Party tunes into NORD support RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A private party had the blessing of the North Okanagan Regional District. Directors gave approval so a Whitevale resident could operate an outdoor public address system in his backyard Friday. “It was a one-off arrangement. It was not a commercial venture,” said Rick Fairbairn, rural Lumby director. Fairbairn also praised the Rick Fairbairn resident for going through the approval process, pointing out that many people would have just held a party and ignored noise bylaws. “He’s done all the right things,” said Fairbairn. NORD’s bylaw states that no one can operate an outdoor public address system without having

first obtained written permission from the regional district. The Whitevale resident was allowed to operate speaker systems on his half-an-acre property from 7 to 11 p.m. Friday. The private party featured two bands and was expected to attract about 75 people, including the musicians. “We couldn’t find a venue in town so I thought, let’s do it at my house,” said the applicant. He had to contact all neighbours within 200 metres of his property and receive written consent from them to host the music event. “Everyone on my stretch of road was in favour of it. There was no opposition,” he said. NORD also sought other assurances from the applicant. “There will be no admission to attend this event and no alcohol provided or sold at this event,” said John Friesen, bylaw enforcement officer, in a written report.

Student promotes tree planting KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

Jade Freeman is on a mission to have students plant trees at their schools. The Grade 4 student at Silver Star elementary school is the president of Trees Make a Difference, which is challenging all students in the Vernon School District to plant trees at their schools. At a recent trustees’ meeting, Jade explained to trustees why she wanted to see more trees planted at area schools. “I wanted to make a difference striving to care for trees in our community, to plant them in parks and schools,” she said. “I feel that planting trees at

schools means they will be cared for.” Jade started her nonprofit organization while still in Grade 2. She raised $300 to buy trees for planting at her school, but had difficulty with organizing the actual planting for a number of reasons. They were eventually planted at the community garden. She met with Silver Star maintenance department staff last year. And, while approval was given to let the planting go ahead, the actual planting space was not finalized. “I have found it difficult to plant trees at school because the maintenance depart-

Vernon RCMP believe they have made a dent in the drug trade. On Thursday, officers from the crime reduction unit executed a search warrant at a pawn shop for trafficking under the Controlled Drug and Substances Act. “This completed an investigation that officers had been working on for some time in relation to drug trafficking,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesman. Gord Molendyk The 50-year-old male suspect was arrested just after closing time Thursday, and has been released on a promise to appear. He is expected to face charges of trafficking and possession for the purpose of trafficking. “This type of enforcement action is part of the ongoing strategic priorities that have been set by the Vernon/North Okanagan Detachment in efforts to keep our communities safer,” said Molendyk. “These efforts are ongoing as our officers continue to deal with the issues that affect many of us relating to drugs and property crime.”

ment doesn’t want to rake leaves and there was a concern about the type of tree to be planted and the irrigation of the tree,” she said. “I’m hoping for approval to make it easier to make a difference by planting trees.” In 2008, Jade met with City of Vernon gardener Isabel Prystawik, who provided her with guidelines on the types of trees suitable for

planting, stressing that the trunk should be thick enough to avoid vandalism. “There is only a small window for planting trees, so if we don’t make decisions, the time for planting will have passed,” she said. “If this program is made possible, it could clear the way for challenging other schools in B.C. to plant trees.” Secretary-treasurer

Randy Hoffman said the district will follow the same processes they do for approving and installing playground equipment. “Jade’s work has begun — it’s not finished yet, but we’ve started the process,” he said. Chairman Bill Turanski said trustees will review her suggestions and make a recommendation.

Welcome to summer, sort of

W

elcome to the unofficial launch of summer as we pay tribute to that favourite of Canadian icons, Queen Victoria, with the first long weekend of the season. Of course it’s felt more like winter of late but the meteorologists have promised (so, you can take that to the bank) good weather, if a bit cooler than normal, for this weekend. So the brave will go camping, the braver will go boating and the old and lazy will try to get something done around the house as planned activities (that would be stuff for the kids) go on hiatus for three whole days. I’ll let you figure out which group I Glenn Mitchell fall into. Actually we’re going to try and have a little fun this weekend, that’s why I actually bothered to check the weather forecast, because you know what, in this country the unofficial start of summer is quickly followed by the unofficial end of summer, Labour Day. And we’re the lucky ones in Canada. On the Prairies the unofficial launch of summer is sometimes greeted by snow flurries. It’s short folks so better get on with it. I mean, let’s just do the math, shall we? If summer starts today, and let’s face it, that’s a stretch as it’s supposed to get down to 4 degrees at night, and June is always iffy and the kids are still in school, then there’s 15 weeks to actually enjoy the great outdoors under semi-decent weather. That’s 15 weeks out of 52, that’s 28 per cent of the year by the way, where we actually get to use all the stuff us Canadians think we need to have to truly enjoy all summer has to offer – the camping gear, the trailer or motorhome, boat, maybe a seadoo or two and a Coleman this or that. You know, all the stuff that clutters up our driveways

MITCHELL’S MUSINGS

and basements for 72 per cent of the year. But, of course, that’s not even reality. Most of us don’t hit the campsites or lakes until the frost is off the pumpernickel, which in these parts is more likely to be around Father’s Day, which this year coincides with the official launch of summer on June 20. Now I know the more adventurous and hardy, or less chicken&*#@, however you want to phrase it, enjoy longer summer seasons but like a good mathematician I’m trying to average things out here. So that brings us down to 11 weeks of summer, or 21 per cent of the year. Hold on a second however. Few of us get out before Canada Day, what with kids in school and everything, and that weekend everything’s jam-packed with tourists anyway, as is B.C. Day weekend in August, and the last week of August is get-ready-for-back-to-school stuff, so subtract, take away the two etc. etc. and you’re left with five or six weeks of summer, give or take bad weather. Average it out and that’s about 10 per cent of the year we Canadians actually get to enjoy the great outdoors in warm weather, and all the stuff we have to do that with. And, of course, most of us only get two weeks off in the summer so we’re really only talking about a couple weekends and maybe a week if the weather’s good and some other life-altering thing doesn’t happen along the way. We’re now talking single-digit percentages here folks. Maybe we should just call the whole thing off and get geared up for hockey season a little earlier this year......... ....Nah, it’s short and sweet and that’s why we go at it so hard and with so much stuff. It’s the Canadian way. However, fellow Canucks, you might want to start today, and try not to blink along the way because it will be over before you know it. But, of course, you already knew that......

If the harmonized sales tax is truly the “best thing we can do to stimulate the B.C. economy,” why didn’t the Liberals institute it in 2001? Back then, when the Liberals came into power, reducing taxes was the “best thing we can do to stimulate the B.C. economy.” Now, nine years later, increasing the taxes people pay is the “best thing we can do to stimulate the B.C. economy.” The benefits of the HST will go only to businesses and corporations. For the citizens of British Columbia, it will mean an increase in the cost of living. The idea of harmonizing the provincial sales tax with the federal goods and services tax has been around for a long time. It didn’t just pop out of the woodwork last summer. What did pop out of the woodwork last summer was a $1 billion bribe from Ottawa. The cash-starved Liberals, who claimed the recession was over, jumped at the opportunity to pocket a billion dollars and claim they know how to manage the province’s finances. Politicians forget they are the architects of things like the HST. Only a fool believes the HST wasn’t on the provincial government’s radar before last May’s election. Shortly after the election, there it is. The politicians showed even more disdain for the citizenry by invoking closure on debate in legislature so they could start charging you on some items May 1. The politicians even wanted to use your tax dollars to do a mail out to every household in the province decrying those opposed to the HST, contrary to the rules governing such petitions. And they wonder why people don’t trust politicians. — Kelowna Capital News

Cyclists getting dumped on

I

s there any hope for bicycle riders before someone gets killed riding them? Was riding south on 27th Street when someone deemed that I was in the way (riding a foot-and-a-half from the sidewalk, I guess, is in the way), therefore the passenger dumped a drink cup on me, while the driver was blaring his horn. hen I reported this to the police, I got the feeling that there isn't enough room for bicycles from 48th Avenue to 43rd Avenue. I have an idea: why don't you ban walking on that portion of 27th Street, as according to you, the city wants more people to use bicycles, even though you haven't come up with a safe way for anyone to ride them. That way we could ride on the sidewalk and anyone that wanted to walk could, oh, I don't know, take the bus! Thinking you laugh! Well then, how about putting a barricade up between the lanes so no one would be able to turn left in the suicide lane, anyone wanting to

A RESPONSE “I don’t think it’s wise for people to put out information that is incorrect.” This is the statement of Mayor Lippert to The Morning Star. Perhaps with this statement he is really referring to his statements, and those of Leon Gous, city administrator, when he said the land (given to the library) has been surplus land since the 1980s and Mr. Gous said the alignment (for 25th Avenue extension) has changed – "The city owns enough land in the area for a road extension if it proceeds.” The draft transportation plan for public circulation (Jan. 23, 2008) shows the alignment utilizing the land already owned by the city with no additional land needed. The original plan without purchasing any land, is far superior to the plan the city is now trying to create and justify. I repeat, they have given away close to $1 million of land and will now have to purchase land for probably $1.5 million to implement the 25th Avenue extension — all without detailed disclosure to council. The traffic flow in the western or the eastern directions in Vernon is very poor to say the least. When main street was reduced to one lane of traffic in each direction, part of the discussion included the need for improved roadworks for traffic to bypass the downtown, ie. 25th Avenue extension. The federal and provincial governments are contributing $5 million to improve intersections

go to that side of the street would have to put their cell phone, coffee, doughnut and/or cigarette down and actually think about how they could plan their trip better. Then you could put a dedicated bike lane in and have more people ride bikes as they may feel much safer. How come everyone is concerned about going green but no one at city hall is committed to do anything about it! on 25th Avenue, but our mayor and administrator just don’t seem to understand that the final improvement to 25th (eastern end) could have been completed without expensive land acquisition costs. The city, on account of its actions, now estimates the cost of the extension at $6.6 million – it was $3.7 million in 2008. Where is the financial accountability? Barry Beardsell WATER WOES In The Morning Star April 6, 2008, Al Cotsworth said snowpack was the highest in a decade. On April 7, 2010, its snow readings show a grim picture. We have gone from the highest to the lowest in two years. This tells me we are in serious trouble. All he can recommend is higher prices, and higher yet in the summer, watering once a week. If the water is so critical, where is the city in all of this. What are their plans to help? It is time to seriously look into future developments. Where is it written that we are obligated through economic greed, rezonings, property developments, more subdivisions, building permits, to provide "new" homes for people wanting to come to our great valley. Just stop, and think. It is not just Vernon, having a shortage of water, it is all up and down the valley. I have no problems with people moving to Vernon, but buy an existing home. With every new home using water, this means less for exist-

I received the water bill and the flyer advertising Bike To Work Week and noticed that someone forgot to put the phone number for the City of Vernon lawyers so that when you get creamed riding to work, you can have quick access for a lawsuit. Of course, that would be a moot point as all you'll be able to do is count the squares on the ceiling of your hospital room. Bob Johnston ing homes, and business. Next, the farmers will be cut back, more than they already have. When they don't have water, we don't eat. Think about it. Why should we be penalized by higher rates, and tougher restrictions? When hindsight finally kicks in, then we should have, could have, won't mean squat, and everybody, and I mean everybody, will end up with a lifestyle none of us had planned on. Rose Pollock TRAFFIC QUESTION Main (30th Avenue) and Alexis Park Drive: is a legal left-turn possible? The signs and lane marking paint at this recently changed intersection seem so configured that drivers must break one or more MVA regulations to enter the dedicated left-turn lane: changing lanes while in an intersection or over a crosswalk; crossing solid white lines; driving straight through over white paint turn arrows. Many drivers seem to be aware of this and are trying various anarchistic approaches to minimize lawbreaking. Most are changing lanes over the crosswalk — an accident waiting to happen. Pedestrians who particularly value themselves might avoid this mid-block crosswalk in the interim or lookout. With no legal options available, when someone is injured here, will the moth to a flame be liable? Robb Grant

WATER REGULATIONS I was outraged that we're influenced by some individuals when it comes to an important issue like water restrictions. Did I read "a ban on pool owners....could be on verge of collapsing?" Our water supply is the worst in 41 years. Wake up people. Would you rather have sufficient running water in your kitchen and flush the toilets, or watch your neighbour dip into a cool swimming pool? What's good for one is not good for the other? What impact will this low water level have during extreme dry summer months? I hope the Greater Vernon politicians reconsider this quick decision regarding lifting of the new water regulations, and stick to it. L. Kol

Vander Zalm slams ‘bogus’ list

FOOD MARKET

ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

A government list of goods and services that will be affected by the new harmonized sales tax when it comes into effect July 1 has been dubbed “garbage” and “bogus” by the man leading the anti-HST movement in B.C. Former B.C. premier Bill Vander Zalm has slammed the list as a deliberate attempt to mislead the public after reviewing it and finding between 50 services that will be impacted not on the list. “This all just points out the shenanigans they are playing. They are deceitful and incompetent,” said Vander Zalm of the Liberal government. “The B.C. government list is bogus. The finance minister is bogus and so is every MLA (who) supports this garbage.” Release of the long-awaited list comes as local organizers of the anti-HST petition announced they have collected the signatures of 9,518 eligible voters in Vernon-Monashee and 10,902 in Shuswap. Fight HST is trying to collect at least 10 per cent of all eligible voters’ signatures in all 85 B.C. provincial ridings in order to force the government to either table legislation abolishing the HST or holding a provincial referendum on the new tax. The HST will combine the five per cent GST and the current seven per cent provincial sales tax into one 12 per cent sales tax starting July 1. The new tax will apply to many goods and services currently not subject to the PST. Vander Zalm said many services have been left off the government’s list including catering, computer repair services, consulting services, commercial leases, fishing charters, home appraisals, investment counselling, limousine rentals, skiing and even parking fees. He said while the list includes 53 goods and services where the tax will increase under HST, his group knows of at least 100. “We spent some time reviewing the list and have

determined it is totally bogus. The government has once again deliberately tried to mislead the public when it comes to the HST,” said Vander Zalm. Airline tickets for destinations in the continental U.S., for instance will continue to only have a five per cent tax levy, equal to the current GST amount. Airline tickets for international destinations other than the continental U.S. will continue to have neither a GST nor PST tax, says the list. But airline tickets for destinations in Canada will have an extra seven per cent tax added. Other goods and service that will have the extra seven per cent tax added include taxi fares, camping sites, basic cable television, local residential phone services, dry cleaning, shoe repair, adult-sized clothing for children, residential smoke detectors, newspapers, restaurant meals and some school supplies. The full provincial list can be found at: http://hst. blog.gov.bc.ca/2010/05/14/hst-whats-taxable-andwhats-not/.

Program extends helping hand to high schoolers For students at Charles Bloom secondary school who are struggling with their classes, there is no shortage of help. At Tuesday’s district board meeting, principal Ken Gatzke outlined the school’s Pyramid of Academic Interventions, subtitled “Failure is not an Acceptable Option,” which outlines the steps taken to ensure success. The Support Our Students (SOS) Program, has enabled the school to move closer to its goal: “To significantly improve the success rates of students in courses.” SOS takes students who are academically at risk and provides a number of strategies to insure their success. “I’ve been at the school for 10 years, and in the early years we worked hard to improve social behavior, and we learned an important goal that when we work together as a staff, we can make a difference,” said Gatzke. “People ask how we get our teachers to commit to the extra help they provide, well it’s rewarding seeing the success these kids are having, so we’re staying the course with our school goal.” Vice-principal Jason Corday said staff submit names of academically at risk students to him the first Friday of each month, although there is an expectation that the teacher has already used interventions at the

EFLECTIONS

ers say it works because giving a kid a zero does not motivate them. “People will say it doesn’t teach them about the real world, but it does teach them accountability and we’ve now got kids in SOS who are passing.” Learning assistance teacher Allison Sheffield said it isn’t about handing an assignment back without comment. “We offer comments, suggestions on how they can make it better,” she said. “Our teachers are fantastic at making contact with parents and letting them know where their son or daughter is at.” Students attend SOS sessions four days per week for three weeks. Students do not have to be failing to attend SOS. It is recommended that teachers refer students before they are failing. Students who have responded positively to SOS are capable of doing

the work, but are not submitting it. As well, students who need additional time to complete assignments have been successful. Students with learning difficulties will be referred to the SchoolBased Team or to Bohn, who is behavior support

and learning lab teacher. “The biggest piece for us is the monthly atrisk list that is submitted by teachers to administration,” said Bohn. “This helps us hold kids accountable, but it also keeps teachers accountable.”

Board chairman Bill Turanski praised the Bloom team for its efforts.

classroom level. Students whose names have been submitted are then discussed at the weekly School-Based Team meeting, where the best course of action is decided, taking into consideration interventions and supports deemed appropriate. From there, the team may decide that additional classroom interventions are required; the student needs a case manager assigned from Student Support Services; or the student will be assigned into the SOS program. “As just one example, we have a Grade 10 student who had moved here recently, with lots of gaps in his education,” said Corday. “He was failing three or four courses and SOS helped him to complete his assignments and he has passed two provincial exams. “We are getting amazing results from SOS, and have significantly reduced the number of students who are failing their courses. We still have 50 or 60 kids on our at-risk list, but we’re hoping by the end of June that will have changed.” In terms of schoolwide interventions, one of the most significant is using Assessment for Learning strategies. “A big part is not allowing students to get a zero,” said teacher Thomas Bohn. “We’ve had a lot of heated discussions among staff, but now a lot of the naysay-

ments.”

The familiar yellow school buses that take kids to and from school every day are kept in tiptop shape, but they don’t last forever. Ve r n o n School District transportation supervisor Alan Hemming has submitted his request for replacement of buses that surpass the age and mileage requirements. At Tuesday’s district board meeting, secretary-treasurer Randy Hoffman presented the request under the 2010/11 capital plan submission. Under Ministry of Education guidelines, buses are considered capital assets and any new or replacement buses are funded as part of a board’s capital plan submission. New buses will only be supported due to increased district enrolment, whereas buses required as part of school consolidations are expected to be funded from operating cost savings. “Funding criteria for the ministry is bus age greater than 12 years and more than 325,000 kilometres,” said Hoffman. “The 2010/2011 request is for seven buses that meet all the require-

capital planning priorities. “Government does not support financially the work to develop a long-range plan as they did in 2005, but as a district we need to do this planning in order to set our capital planning priorities for the future,” said Hoffman. According to ministry guidelines, eligible projects include the provision of new educational space required for enrolment growth; the replacement or renovation of existing school facilities with significant deficiencies. “Funding for board offices is not provided for in the provincial capital program,” said Hoffman. “Nonetheless these facilities require attention and must be included in a long-term planning process and as we know, our board office has been left to

Mega marina would consider residents, fish A proposal to triple the size of a marina on Westside Road is lacking input, according to the Central Okanagan Regional District. The board weighed in Monday night on Lake Okanagan Resort’s application to the Ministry of Environment to increase the size of its moorage facility from 58 berths to 158 slips. Before agreeing to conditionally support the application to the ministry, however, the board sought clarification on a few issues, including the size of the proposed expansion and opportunities for public and First Nations’ feedback. The board began by questioning why so many slips would be needed when the resort has only 79 rooms. Resort spokesman Doug Fry said that the larger marina was in keeping with an expansion plan for tourist and residential accommodation. “It contemplates up to 500 residential units on that land. Currently there are just in excess of 230 including two new buildings.” Resort expansion would be subject to market conditions, noted Fry, offering no firm timelines for full build out. Fry also noted that the marina expansion has been reduced in scope since the resort originally applied to the ministry in 2006. The initial application called for 296

slips, plus moorage for 10 houseboats, a storage house for water toys and fuel station on the lake. The size was reduced because of potential impacts on kokanee spawning grounds, regional district staff noted. Fry then mentioned that a fuel pump station and a small water toy and life jacket storage facility would still be included in the plans, but added at a later date. The provision for houseboat slips was removed, he said. Central Okanagan West electoral area director Jim Edgson said he had opportunity to speak with area residents at a recent meeting concerning the marina application. They’re pleased so far with what they see, according to the director. “They’re wildly ecstatic there won’t be any houseboats. That’s

not since. T h e board also wanted to ensure the marina was monitored full time and that environmental safeguards were

“They’re wildly ecstatic there won’t be any houseboats.” — Jim Edgson number one. Number two, is they welcome and support fully the reduction in the dock size,” said Edgson. “They would like to see the fuelling establishment there. They need a fueling facility.” However, board chairman Robert Hobson noted that residents should also be able to express their views, either for or against the marina, directly to the applicant. The regional board said it would support the marina expansion application, provided the environment ministry required the applicant to hold a public information session. It also wanted the ministry to ensure the Westbank First Nation and Okanagan Nation Alliance were consulted concerning the revised application, noting they were consulted at the time of the original application in 2006, but

Fire ban looming Morning Star Staff

Effective at noon June 1, medium- and largesized open fires will be prohibited within the North Okanagan to help prevent human-caused wildfires and limit the impact of smoke. Specifically, the B.C. Forest Service decision refers to: ■ Waste, slash or other burning, whether piled or unpiled, larger than one metre in height and one metre in width. ■ More than two piles of waste, slash or other burning, whether piled or unpiled, of any size. ■ Stubble or grass burning over any area. ■ Fireworks, including firecrackers. The ban covers all B.C. Parks, Crown and private lands, but does not apply within the boundaries of local governments that have forest fire prevention bylaws and are serviced by a fire department.

Faith Harding recognized Morning Star Staff

This year’s Paddy Mackie Memorial Heritage Award has been given to Faith Harding, a longtime member of the Vernon and District Heritage Society. A longtime member of the society, Harding is known throughout the community for her tireless efforts to serve. She has been a director to the Heritage Society for several years and it was noted during the presentation that she has never missed a meeting. Her contribution to heritage preservation includes research on heritage properties, planning heritage celebrations and events, calling the membership to remind them of meetings and the all-important management of coffee and refreshments at the monthly meetings. “Without Faith’s commitment to our meetings, there would be no cream for your coffee and no sugar for your tea,” said Deborah Stuart, society secretary, in her nomination of Harding. “Preserving heritage works in many different ways. Often important work is done without a lot of recognition.” In addition to her work with the society, Harding organizes the volunteers for Canadian Blood Services every six weeks when the blood donor clinic is in Vernon. Trinity United Church is also a big part of Harding’s life and the United Church Women’s Guild depends on her for her many efforts including a current project to provide supper for foster parents once a week. She always has a knitting project on the go and she finds time to teach knitting classes for local youth. “Perhaps fitting to receive this award, Faith would head up organizing dinners, tea or coffee and dessert meetings at Mackie’s lake house on Kidston Road in

Faith Harding receives the Paddy Mackie Award from Bob Wilson, president of the Vernon and District Heritage Society, at the group’s April meeting. Coldstream,” said Stuart. Mackie, a charter member of the Heritage Society, was the son of the pioneering family who owned and operated the Vernon Prep School in Coldstream. A respected teacher, artist and heritage crusader himself, he died in July of 1999. At the time of his death, Mackie had established a foundation to manage his estate, focusing on promoting the history of Coldstream and the role his family played in its development. The Mackie house remains today as a cultural centre for historical studies, artistic development and an educational centre for local students. The Heritage Society established the award to honour Mackie’s memory and as

a way to recognize outstanding contributions to the preservation and awareness of our history and physical heritage. “The scope of the award is broad in order to recognize all kinds of heritage achievement,” said Stuart. Some past winners include: Anna Cail, Danny and Deborah Stuart, Ken and Jan Waldon, Dave Richards, Sharon Lawrence and the Vernon Community Music School, Pat Bayliss, Peter and Marian Blundell, Ken Ellison, Ron Candy and Patrick Allen. The Vernon and District Heritage Society meets the third Thursday of the month (September to June) at Heritage Hall in Polson Park. For more information, please call Stuart at 250-549-3058.

I was working in Borneo at the time (‘70s) for Shell and I was to go to Manila in the Philippines to interview people for jobs as mechanics in the Brunei oilfield. The travel arrangements involved a flight from Brunei to Singapore and a change of plane onwards to Manila. I left Brunei before midday expecting a total time of about five hours to reach Manila. I don’t remember what happened, but the plane was late leaving Singapore and reached Manila about three hours late and in the dark. Now I had been booked in at a good hotel on Roxas Boulevard, a main street in central Manila, But when I reached it I was told that, as I had not arrived when expected, my room had been given to someone else and they had no other room to offer me. The receptionist was sorry but the best that he could do was to suggest I try a hotel he knew of that

was quite nearby. Apparently there was some sort of convention in the city and all the main hotels were fully booked. Well I thought that I would still be all right so I took up my case and set off following his somewhat imprecise directions. Now it had started to rain and I knew that the curfew hour was approaching. The curfew was enforced to clear the local streets by 10 p.m. and I wanted to be off the streets as soon as possible. Otherwise I would spend the night as a guest of the police and probably in some rather dubious company. I am not sure whether I got the directions mixed up or whether the receptionist had misdirected me, deliberately or otherwise. But at almost 10 o’clock I saw the hotel neon sign so I went in. My first impression was that this hotel would be unlikely to manage even one star on the Michelin scale as it seemed to be not very well furnished although it looked reasonably clean. The first surprise came when the man behind the front desk asked me how many hours that I wanted a room for. While I was working out how to reply, the clock struck 10 so I knew that in spite of my doubts about this place I was stuck here until the next morning. I suppose that the long flight and delays plus the assorted mishaps had slowed my think-

ing. Only when the hotel man asked me where my partner was did the truth start to dawn on me. I was in what is euphemistically called “a house of ill repute” and I had no way of leaving until the morrow. So I made the best of things and paid, in advance, a reasonably moderate sum for a room. I declined the offer of other services offered! It was a small room barely furnished with just a bed, a bedside table and chair, with a washbasin and rudimentary toilet. Being very tired I just went to bed and ignored the assorted noises coming through the somewhat thin walls. I slept soundly and checked out about seven o’clock next morning, noting that this “hotel” did not offer a breakfast service! I remedied that when I got to the offices of Philippines Shell. Nothing else of any note happened during that visit and I avoided referring to my previous night’s sleeping arrangements until I got home. When I explained it to my wife she laughed heartily and said that it could only happen to me. It never happened again, thank goodness, and once she had accepted it I could see the funny side of it. But again it was a valuable lesson in something or other, although I am not sure what!

Seniors

Resources at your fingertips

I

t occurs to me that some of us seniors have a great gap in our communication highway when we are unable, or choose not to, learn computer skills and plug into all the information available through the internet. It can be a financial choice, with not enough money to buy a computer, although free use of computers is available at the library and other places. It may be that we think it is too complicated and that we are unable to learn at our advanced age, although I know many people well over 80 that are computer literate. Mostly, I think, it is a matter of choice and resistance to change. And that is a shame as more and more information is transmitted without paper and using websites and e-mail to access information. For instance www. seniors.gc.ca includes all sorts of information about pensions, health, retirement, etc. The Seniors’ Information and Resource Bureau’s Seniors’ Housing Guide (2010) is available at

www.socialplanning.ca or if you go to the Mayo Clinic website at www. mayoclinic.com there is abundant information on arthritis, stenosis, diabetes and other diseases that seem to come with age, and they also offer treatment suggestions and daily living advice. Information we all need to know to make good choices in life. There are many places to learn computer skills in Vernon such as Okanagan College, and Schubert Centre offers beginners and advanced courses. Their number is 250-549-4201. Speaking of Schubert Centre, manager Jack Gareb reported to the Seniors Action Network meeting that Schubert Centre’s housing proposal is proceeding with two towers planned on the site. One tower will be built in the current parking lot and the other behind the building, into the hill. Each building will be seven

stories high with parking. One will have two floors of commercial space with the remaining floors sold as condos or life lease apartments. The second tower will be affordable housing with assisted living options available. This will provide a total of 120 living spaces Pat Black for both towers. The affordable tower will probably be built first and they are looking at a start date sometime in the spring of 2011. The total cost is estimated to be $15 million. The Centre on Aging at University of Victoria will be holding a free six-week workshop for the Chronic Pain Self Management Program in Vernon. The workshop is for people experiencing a wide range of chronic pain conditions. Topics include debunking myths about pain, differences between acute and chronic pain, pacing activity and rest, managing fatigue/sleep, introducing physical activity and exer-

PERSONAL BEST

cise, medication usage for chronic pain, communicating effectively with health care providers, and more. The workshop starts Wednesday and others are planned for the fall. To register for this or future workshops please call, toll free, the Centre for Aging at 1-866- 9023767. Seniors in apartments, here is your chance to get out and do some gardening close to home and meet others at the same time. West Vernon Community Gardens still has spaces open with raised beds and resting areas for those that are not as physically able as others. If you are interested call Wendy at 250-542-6920 or e-mail her at wendyaasen@shaw.ca. The Seniors Information and Resource Bureau and the Falls Prevention Program is moving at the end of June from their present location at 3205-31st Ave., across from the Parkade, to the People Place at 3402 – 27th Ave. Their phone number, 250-545-8572, will remain the same

Aggression delivers fireworks GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Aggression – the name says it all. Friday night’s fightfilled mixed martial arts event, dubbed Aggression Trilogy, at Wesbild Centre had plenty of it. From stunning technical knockouts to stealthy submissions, the 10-fight card did not disappoint. The attendance, however, did. Even after sectioning off the south end of Wesbild, there were still plenty of empty seats, with perhaps 400 fight fans taking in the event. In the main event, Nanaimo’s Nick Hinchliffe (Impact MMA) recovered from a near knockout in the first round, and escaped an armbar joint lock in the second, to stop Ottawa’s Craig (The Farmer) Brown with a rear choke in the third round. Both 185-pounders came out slugging, and Hinchcliffe was the first to get tagged, taking a hard right to the jaw. Brown took advantage by taking his opponent to the ground, but didn’t administer any serious damage, which allowed Hinchliffe to recover. “As soon as I hit the mat I was like ‘What are you doing man? Don’t be stupid.’ We were both throwing haymakers, but that’s our style – we’re brawlers,” said Hinchliffe, 26. “I knew he was going to bring it, I knew he was a tough guy. I had a couple opponents pull out, and when I found out it was Farmer Brown I got real excited. He’s a banger and he brings it every time – he comes to fight.” Normally a light-heavyweight, this was Brown’s second time cutting to middleweight and Hinchliffe, who improved to 14-5, suspects it may have affected his stamina. “When he got on top of me in the first, I controlled his arms really well, so for him to land any strikes was a big exertion of energy... and that played a factor in his cardio.”

Baz Cunningham of Campbell River (right) comes over the top with a hard right cross on Brandon Frost of West Kelowna in what was easily Fight of the Night at Aggression MMA Trilogy Friday night at Wesbild Centre. Hinchliffe will next face former UFC fighter Kalib Starnes for the Armageddon Fighting Championship middleweight title at AFC 3, July 17 in Victoria. “That’ll be the biggest fight of my career, but I think I’ll be ready for it,” he said. In the co-main event, Toshido MMA’s Mike Adams used superior grappling skills and brute strength to stop Impact’s Graham Spencer in the second round. Both fighters held 5-0 records coming into the fight. Fight of the Night was a no-brainer – Campbell River’s Baz Cunningham and Iron Dragon’s Brandon Frost (West Kelowna) electrified the crowd with two rounds of punishing toe-to-toe action. Frost pushed the pace early, but faded as the fight wore on, and was unable to answer the bell for the final round. Submission specialist Clay Davidson (Toshido) pushed his win streak to six with a sweet Kimura submission of Lethbridge’s Devon Neis. He earned $500 for Submission of the Night. "I knew my guy, he wanted to stand and trade and in this sport you gotta take the fight to where you've got the best chance to win,” said Davidson, the son of former Salmon Arm SilverBacks’ owner Gary Davidson. "I do this for a living, so I need the paycheque too. It's for the love of the sport obviously first, but I'm trying to do this as a professional fighter so the pay matters and I gotta go out

and fight smart." The lone women’s fight proved to be one of the best as Impact’s Rachel Swatez collected a $500 bonus for TKO of the Night. After grappling with Prince George’s Lori Ann Hilland for much of the first round, Swatez used a hip toss to take the fight to the mat where she gained full mount and pummeled her opponent with a barrage of vicious rights. Edmonton’s Phil Wark opened the show with a unanimous decision over Impact’s Chris Leslie. Wark shows used his jiu-jitsu to control Leslie’s back for much of the fight, but wasn’t able to sink in a rear choke submission. Tofino’s Rob Bastone paid for a flying knee attempt early in the second round as Victoria’s Chris Jones immediately took him to the ground to earn a rear choke submission one minute into the round. Toshido’s Russel Davis earned a huge ovation with his TKO stoppage of Nanaimo’s Upneet Rai at 2:19 of the first round. Davis stunned Rai with a looping right and then kept on swinging to force the referee stoppage. Dia Grant of Kelowna’s Avatar Self Defence submitted Impact’s Darcy James in the first round with a rear choke. Richmond’s David Perron survived a power slam and a choke attempt before stopping Kamloops’ Nolan Clark with some punishing ground-and-pound late in the first round. All fights were sanctioned by the Vernon Athletic Committee.

Halak easy to hype

I

caught Jaroslav Halak’s act at the Vancouver Olympics. Nothing special. Just a neat and tidy 25-save showing in a 3-2 semifinal loss to Team Canada. Halak was beat by Patrick Marleau, Brenden Morrow and Ryan Getzlaf in what was somewhat of a yawner until the Slovaks got late goals four minutes apart from Lubomir Visnovsky and Michal Handzus. Until the Winter Games, I didn’t know Halak was a Slovakian. Just knew he had expressed a wish to be traded out of Montreal since Carey Kevin Mitchell Price appeared to be the No. 1 net detective. Guess we should have suspected Halak was in a zone after he stopped 36 of 37 shots in a preliminary round game victory against a strong Russian team. Halak and his Slovak teammates finished fourth overall in the Olympics after losing against Finland. Halak started all the games during the Winter Games. Following the Olympics, the Canadiens reached out to VP of Player Development Greg Kates to designate Halak their starting goaltender. Geez, wonder how long they discussed that game-plan? Patience has certainly paid off for Halak. He is now bigger than Celine Dion and poutine in Quebec as the Habs try to stop the Philly Flyers in their Drive for 25 Stanley Cups. Halak was drafted 271st overall by Montreal in the 2003 amateur lottery. Another Steve Penney perhaps? He then racked up 24 wins and 2.78 GAA with the Quebec Major Junior League Lewiston Maineiacs in the ‘04-05 season. The following season, Halak went 11-4-2 with a 2.05 GAA with the Long Beach Ice Dogs of the ECHL. Win or lose, Halak, who just turned 25, has been the feel-good story of the playoffs. The Canadiens have uncovered yet another nugget between the pipes and the guy is so likeable, it’s hard not to cheer for him. However, Chicago hasn’t won the Cup since the Berlin Wall was erected. Go Hawks Go! Meanwhile, Montreal Gazette sports columnist Pat Hickey wrote about encountering some problems when he came out of the Wachovia Centre in Philadelphia and found “my beloved 1999 Honda Accord had been vandalized and the culprit had taken my Quebec licence plate as a souvenir.” The Flyers and the Philly police are apparently questioning a suspect in the case. Wrote Hickey: “A picture of the culprit and the missing plate showed up on a Facebook page. The

BETWEEN THE LINES

person who belongs to the page claims he’s innocent. He said he found the picture on the Internet and thought it was funny. He did say he knows the identity of the miscreant and he’s cooperating with the police. “I knew the culprit had to be a moron, but I didn’t think he was dumb enough to take pictures of the incident and put them on the Internet.” Hickey has received hundreds of e-mails from the true Philly fans who have expressed their outrage. There have been offers of dinner, tips on restaurants and art galleries, and even a message from a guy with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, who volunteered his services as a bodyguard. NOTES AND QUOTES: Vernon minor hockey grad Riley Spraggs will play for the BCHL Prince George Spruce Kings next season. Spraggs, an 18-year-old winger with good hands, recorded 25 goals and 53 points in his rookie season with the Western Canadian junior B champion Revelstoke Grizzlies, coached by Vernon’s Troy Mick...Ex-Viper head coach Mark Holick has been named head coach of the Syracuse Crunch of the American Hockey League. The Crunch are the top minor league club of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks. Holick, who earned Coach of the Year with the WHL’s Kootenay Ice this year, guided the 2006-07 Vipers to the BCHL final...Kevin MacKay will assume the title of associate head coach/ assistant GM with the Salmon Arm SilverBacks. MacKay spent the last several years coaching in the KIJHL, most recently as the head coach/GM of the Kimberley Dynamiters. “To add someone to our staff with Kevin’s credentials is outstanding for the organization and our players. I have known him personally for over 15 years. He knows the league and is a first-class person and coach,” said ‘Backs’ GM/head coach Rylan Ferster, a member of the 1990 Centennial Cup champion Vernon Lakers...The Vipers went back-to-back national champs with a dozen returnees and veteran Jonathan Milhouse of the 2009 Royal Bank Cup host Victoria Grizzlies. The Lakers, meanwhile, had just four returnees when they repeated in ‘91 in Sudbury: goalie Murray Caton, Jason Elders, Marcel Aubin and Lorne Kanigan... Goalie Chad Pieper and GM Ryan Nitchie of the Armstrong Shamrocks helped the National Lacrosse League’s top-seeded Washington Stealth celebrate their 15-11 final win over the Toronto Rock before 8,600 screaming fans last Saturday night. The Stealth, which plays out of the Comcast Arena in Everett, had to move an earlier playoff game to Seattle’s KeyArena because Comcast was booked by Sesame Street Live. As Dwight Perry of the Seattle Times wrote: “In other words, hometown fans, Saturday’s game is brought to you by the letters N, U, T and S.”

Maroons rule Valley rugby Morning Star Staff

The Fulton Maroons worked hard at practice this week adjusting their lineout, and it paid huge dividends at the Okanagan Valley Senior AA Boys Rugby Championships. Jumper, Jesse Lochhead, was able to secure all of the balls coming his way on offence, and was even able to steal most of the Kelowna Christian Knights lineout ball as the Maroons stuffed the Knights 20-10 in the gold-medal game. Fulton opened the scoring with some quick thinking by No. 8 Ben Olson who snapped up the ball on a quick tap penalty and took it in from the five-yard marker. The maroons were pressured a couple times in their half in the first quarter, but their defensive line withstood anything KCS threw at them.

Just before halftime, centre Dalton Anderson made a great heads-up play by chipping the ball to open space close to the goal line. He was able to outpace his opposition and scoop up the ball to give the Maroons a 10-0 halftime lead. “Nick Pantaleo gets a big credit for his efforts in making that play happen,” said Fulton head coach Rick Smith. “He did very well out on the wing defending, and was instrumental in getting turnover ball to give the opportunity for Anderson to make his play.” The Maroons continued their attack in the second half. Forwards Damon Souque and Cam Day led most of the pod ball, driving hard into the Knights’ defence.

Silhouettes show sizzle Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Silhouettes synchronized swimmers earned some top awards in the Jean Peters Provincial Meet last weekend in Kamloops. In the compulsory figure events, Kayley McNab placed 23rd out of 48 competitors in Tier 3 figures. In Tier 1 13 & Over figures, Shelby Kerr took home the silver medal, Michelle Shaver placed fourth and Daelyne Ponipal was ninth out of 20 competitors. In Tier 1 Under 12 figures, Josie Sexsmith placed fourth, Julia Palfreyman tied for fifth, Charlotte Barker was eighth, Taylor Sexsmith ninth and Kadia McNichold placed 17th out of 40 competitors. In routine events, all swimmers came home with awards. McNab received sixth in Tier 3 solo. Kerr and

Shaver brought home gold in Tier 1 13 & O duet, where the Tier 1 12 & U trio swam by Josie and Taylor Sexmith and Ponipal also brought home the gold. Kerr, Shaver, Palfreyman, Barker and McNichol swam in Tier 1 12 & U team and received bronze out of seven entries. This was the last competition of the year, however, the girls continue to train at the Vernon Rec Centre to better their skills for next year. The Silhouettes are hosting a Watershow on Saturday from 4-5 p.m. at the Vernon pool where anyone is welcome to come, watch and participate. “If you or your daughter is interested in trying synchro, you are more than welcome to bring a swimsuit and hop in the water to learn a few skills and have some fun,” said Vernon coach Katie Dick.

CITY OF ARMSTRONG

STAGE 2 WATER RESTRICTIONS EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY Due to spring run off and heavy rains, the City of Armstrong is having to switch water source from the Fortune Creek surface supply to groundwater wells. The creek water is temporarily too high in turbidity and color to be reliable. Some of the changes you may notice with the well water are - the water from the wells is slightly warmer, it may taste differently and require more soap for cleaning. However, it is entirely safe to use. As the well water is limited, it is necessary to implement Stage 2 Water Restrictions immediately. During Stage 2 Restrictions, no person shall: i) use a sprinkler or irrigation system to water a lawn, garden, trees or shrubs; or ii) wash driveways, sidewalks, parking lots or exterior building surfaces. During Stage 2 a person may: i) water trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering is done by hand, but only during the prescribed Stage 1 watering hours and days which are : - an even numbered address may water on even days of the calendar and an odd numbered address may water on odd days of the calendar - between the hours of 7 am to 11 am and 7 pm to 11 pm; and ii) Water newly planted trees, shrubs, flowers and vegetables if watering by hand during installation and for the following 24 hours. These restrictions apply to all residents of the City of Armstrong, Pleasant Valley and Round Prairie Specified Areas, Highland Park, Stardel, Silver Star and Lansdowne Water Districts and other residents of Spallumcheen receiving City of Armstrong water.

Sports Yankees gong Pirates Morning Star Staff

Sun Valley Sports Yankees used a strong pitching performance and savvy hitting to defeat the Kari Gare Pirates 7-5 in Mosquito baseball action Wednesday night at Lakeview Park. Alyssa Racine and Caden Doyle both threw two strong innings early in the game, while at the plate, Shelby Porteous and Riley Clark both went 2-for2 with huge doubles, Porteous finished the game with three runs scored. Kadyn Thomas pitched his way out of a basesloaded jam in the final inning against a strong Pirates lineup to preserve the win. In Pee Wee action, the Watkin Motor Rangers edged the Sun Dial Lighting Reds 12-11 at Creekside Park. The Reds made a valiant comeback by scoring three runs and loading the bases before Jacob Holland of the Rangers could get the third out. Braden Gilowski, Eddie Goodwater and Dusty Beckner all scored two runs each for the Reds. The Rangers' offence was handled by Joey Kohut, Sydnee Hughes, Seth Blundell and Jordan Graham. Taylor Scott, Dylan Oberle and Holland closed out the game pitching for the Ford crew. Pitching duties for the Sun Dial gang was Jackson Brownrigg, Jonah Anstey and Jake Emmons, with the workhorse Beckner catching the entire game.

This put KCS under a great deal of pressure which eventually led to some quick hands in the Maroons’ backs with centre Brad Sarazin earning a try. Kelowna got some momentum as the Maroons basically handed the ball to the sprinting opposition centre, who ran it in for a try. This was followed by some undisciplined penalties by the Maroons, which led to another KCS score from the five as an errant kick from the goal line landed in a charging forward’s hands. The maroon defence held up though, creating much needed turnover ball. Winger Kyle Richardson gained some great field position for the Maroons on a terrific power run to set up a few rucks close to the goal line. Day plowed through the KCS defence for the final score right at the whistle. Fulton’s first-place Valley finish places them ninth for the provincial seeding. They will face Surrey’s Southridge Storm in the first round of the B.C. championships, which goes Saturday in Kamloops. The second round starts June 2 in Abbotsford. In junior boys rugby action, outside centre Nathan Meyer earned a trio of tries as the Kalamalka Lakers toppled the Pen–Hi Lakers 24-10 in the Valley semifinals Thursday afternoon at Kal Secondary.

The Lakers will travel to Kamloops to face the South Kamloops Titans for the Valley title Wednesday. Loose-head prop Chase Ladyka counted Kal’s other try, while Derek Haishen and Nacho Fernandez shared convert duties. “It was an extremely physical and emotionally charged game. Keeping our emotions in check was half the battle,” said Kal head coach Brad Marsh, noting one of his team’s tries came when a Pen-Hi player was in the sin bin for excessive roughness. “It wasn’t an open ended thing, it was more crunching tackles.” While the visitors enjoyed the majority of ball possession, Kal’s defence was the story of the game. “We were unbelievable defensively. They had a lot of ball, but they just weren’t able to break us down defensively,” said Marsh, who estimates Kal was forced to make twice as many tackles as Pen-Hi. “We didn’t have a lot of ball, but we made the most of the possession we had.” Marsh was impressed with how quickly Kal was able to quash any comeback attempts. They built up a 12-0 lead and never really gave the visitors a chance to get back in it. “When they got back within striking distance, we responded right away,” he said. “I’m impressed with the effort of everybody. The guys that came in off the bench played well.”

The Vernon Re/Max Tigers looked to veteran Rob Short when they needed a big play Thursday night at Kelowna Memorial Arena. After allowing the host Warriors to score four unanswered goals and equalize at 7-7, Short connected on a breakaway with two minutes left to give the Tigers an 8-7 victory. It was Short's second goal of the night. The Tigers moved to 6-1 and five points up on the second-place Kamloops Venom in the seven-team Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League. "It was a good back and forth game and when they scored with 30 seconds left in the second period, I was a little concerned," said Tigers' co-coach Rich Zecchel. "Ryan Landels had a really strong game. He scored twice and had three goals called back for having a foot in the crease. Some referees call that really closely." Landels leads the Tigers in scoring with eight goals (12 points). Brooks Christensen also scored twice for Re/Max and is third in league points with 6-12-18. Craig Bigsby and Bayne Bosquet rounded out the Vernon scoring. Braidy Webb supplied two assists. The Tigers held league points king Brad DeShane (12-9-21) without a point. Tyler French, with 3+1, and Luke Bailey, with two goals, led Kelowna (3-2). Josh Phillips went the distance in the Vernon net, registering 41 saves. The Tigers led 4-1 after one period. Vernon visits the 2-4-1 Rutland Raiders Saturday night.

Meanwhile, the Venom improved to 4-2 by brushing back the host Armstrong Shamrocks 7-4 Wednesday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Dyllion Billanchuk, Cullen Rowan, Braydon Bridge and Logan Strohm scored for the 'Rocks (1-6), who host the Kamloops Rattlers (3-2) Friday night.

Grapes squash Gator crew Morning Star Staff

After a couple disappointing weeks, the Kal Hotel Naked Grapes got some power at the plate to brush back White House Mortage Gators 18-6 in Vernon Women’s Slo-Pitch League play Wednesday night at Kin Park #1. The Grapes got solid hitting and defence all the way through the lineup, culminating in an eight-run third inning. Game MVP Jody McCall went 4-for-4 at the plate and was steady on the mound. Lisa Payne and Linda

Castonguay also went 4-for-4, while Paula Bifano swung 3-for-3. In other Wednesday action, Sue Bru turned in a solid defensive showing as Dave’s Mobile Mechanic Devils iced Sundance Pool & Spa Blazers 12-5 at Kin #2. Game MVP Conni DaminiHayward smacked a triple and two singles and was walked once to lead the Devils’ attack. Nancy Lafreniere (4-for-4) and shortstop Kim Zimmerman (3-for-4) also brought heavy bats.

Government opens new learning centre Morning Star Staff

New opportunities are available for young learners and their families in Lake Country. A StrongStart BC early learning centre has opened at George Elliot Secondary School. “Investing in early learning helps to ensure our students will be successful throughout their school years,” said MLA Norm Rolli Cacchioni Letnick. S t ro n g S t a r t BC is a provincial program for preschool-aged children accompanied by a parent or caregiver. A qualified early childhood educator leads activities, including stories, music, and arts, to help children grow linguistically, emotionally and socially, and become comfortable in a school-like setting.

The Central Okanagan School District has received $50,000 for the George Elliot Secondary StrongStart BC centre. This includes $20,000 to prepare in-school space, including renovations and the purchase of new equipment and learning materials and $30,000 to fund this year’s operating costs, including staff, professional development, supplies and healthy snacks. “Our district is pleased to partner with the Ministry of Education to increase the opportunities for parents, grandparents and caregivers to interact with their children in a playbased learning environment,” said Rolli Cacchioni, district chairman. “We are extremely pleased to have opened this centre in the district of Lake Country, which enables parents to make connections to other families, community resources and helps to facilitate a smooth transition to the school-aged program.”

Without the generous support from local and national companies, the many volunteer hours that were invested and of course, the people of our community who attended the sale and purchased items, this would not have been possible. We raised $3500 from the garage sale, of which 100% stays in our community!

Let June Evans loose in a building supplies store and she’s as happy as can be. “My daughter, Jan, and I are the only two women I know whose hearts beat faster when we walk into a hardware store,” she said, laughing. “I was always kind of a tomboy and I was raised with three brothers on a farm and all my life I was fixing things.” Evans couldn’t have been more pleased when her family arranged to have her 80th birthday, April 11, at Home Depot, one of her favourite places. “My daughter thought that since I’m always building things and I’m at Home Depot a lot, she would ask to have the party there and they let us have the little cabin there. The family sent a limo for me and I had no idea where we were going. It was so much fun and really a shock and wonderful surprise when Trent Appell of Home Depot presented me with a reciprocating saw. Now I can really rip things apart,” she said. Evans always has several projects on the go around her home and yard. She used to help her late husband and now she has figured out how to do most things on her own. She built and painted a deck and

The fence she made, including pouring concrete for the posts, was just what she wanted but it was in the wrong place so she moved it. “I just enjoy doing this sort of thing. I’m not really good at it but it gives me a great deal of pleasure. I’d say my biggest project was the arbour,” she said. “I can do most household repairs, I put a new window in my studio, and I’m always painting. My friends tell

me my house must be held up by paint.” While Evans likes wielding a paint brush around the house, she is also an accomplished artist who paints with the group at the Vernon Community Arts Centre every Friday and has work in the show at the Coat Check Gallery at the Performing Arts Centre. Her latest projects

include cutting down a picnic table and painting decorative finish on a chest. “You can do it yourself. Don’t be afraid to try. I learned a lot on my own. I go to a neighbour or to Home Dept when I need to know more about something and now I get power tools for gifts and I use them. You just have to wear protective clothing and safety glasses. I really enjoy it.”

“My spouse doesn’t appreciate me.” “I need more money.” “My kids are driving me crazy.” Thoughts like these may run through our minds many times a day, fostering fear, anger, stress and depression. How different would your life be if these thoughts never bothered you again? “The Work” of Byron Katie is a method that allows you to question these thoughts in such a way that they are cleared from your mind. Anyone with a willingness to experience change can do it. This process works. It’s radical, and life changing. Learn to use this simple yet powerful process for yourself during this full day interactive workshop facilitated by Lisa Webster, MA, of Vernon Counselling & Therapy.

Spending a summer at Sylvan will do more than just keep your child busy. A personalized summer learning plan can build the skills, habits and attitudes your child needs for lifelong success.

Haugen Day brings the Armstrong/ Spallumcheen community together to have fun and support its local health care centre. The community started working to create the Haugen Community Health Centre when tax dollars no longer provided the level of health care needed and doctors were leaving the area. The Haugen Community Healthcare Society, in partnership with the Kindale Developmental Association, raised money to renovate a suitable site for a group practice and recruited doctors.

Q: A:

Why is my dog destroying the house when I’m not at home?

This may be a case of separation anxiety. To reduce or ease separation anxiety, homecomings should be keep low key with minimal stimulation and excitation towards your pet. Increased exercise and play time can help keep your pet emotionally and physically satisfied. Obedience training, more frequent walks away from home, and increased interaction with other people and dogs can reduce your dog’s dependence on you Your veterinarian can recommend additional ways to alleviate separation anxiety, if these methods are unsuccessful.

Everyone is on board at Caravan

Mystery unfolds at ranch

JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

An old medieval morality play is getting new life breathed into it for this year’s Caravan Farm Theatre summer production. Medieval plays used allegorical characters to express and personify complex issues and that will be the essence of the play entitled Everyone, said the company’s artistic director Estelle Shook. “What would shame look like if it were a real person? What would anger or fear look like?” she asked. Loosely based on the play, Everyman, which follows a man who is trying to get into heaven, Everyone looks at the struggles of each member of an entire family including the two parents, two children and the grandfather. “Morality plays were meant to educate and entertain because the population back then was largely illiterate,” said Shook. “That’s not an issue now. Our primary goal will be to entertain.” For years, Caravan Farm Theatre has been taking on new and interesting challenges, and this year is no different. Everyone will feature seven acts, each one staged from a separate horse-drawn wagon. Incorporating horses into the stage-show is nothing new to Caravan Farm, but it is new to the companies that came up from the coast to help put on the show. “We have six different companies each writing a different act,” said Shook. And with that will come six different perspectives and six different methods of storytelling. “The main thing is to maintain a sense of a unified story.” Although it may be the production’s biggest struggle, it will also be its biggest strength.

Morning Star Staff

JESSICA SCHWITEK/MORNING STAR

The entire creative team from Caravan Farm Theatre’s summer show, Everyone, gathers around the replica of the production’s outdoor theatre. “Team members were chosen for their unique storytelling and their unique take on the world,” said Shook. There is no unified moral code in the world today, so with each scene having a different take on the situation, it makes it more realistic, she added. “It almost has a reality TV feel to it.” In terms of keeping a similar tone throughout the play despite the variety of sources, Shook says

she is not worried. The creative team is not having difficulties agreeing, and in the end “a good story is a good story,” she said. And don’t let the seriousness of the moral issues fool you. Shook promises that Everyone will be as comical as it is emotionally stirring. Everyone runs from July 20 to Aug. 22, and tickets are already on sale at the Ticket Seller in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. Call 250-549-7469, or order online at www.ticketseller.ca.

The Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble is about to shake The Golden Tambourine with its 11th anniversary theatrical dance production at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. On stage Sunday, May 30, The Golden Tambourine is a fairytale set in Ukraine featuring the mystical forest nymphs called Mavky. “According to folklore, the biggest danger in Ukrainian forests was from woodland nymphs called Mavky, which lured their victims with beautiful songs, then tickled them to death,” said Sadok’s artistic director Andrea Malysh, who has choreographed the presentation. Sadok’s story begins in the region of Transcarpathia in the southwest flanks of the Carpathian Mountains of

Ukraine, where a young shepherd has lost his sheep and is chasing around the rolling hills looking for them. He comes across the magical Golden Tambourine in which the Mavky forest nymphs are playing a trick on him and his sheep. “This is just the start of the Mavky, their trickery and travels throughout Ukraine,” said Malysh, who has studied and practised Ukrainian folk dance and ethnography for the past 25 years. Malysh has had the privilege to work with other professional instructors and regional experts in Canada, Australia and Ukraine. In 2006, she was awarded a diploma from the school of choreography at the Virsky National University of Arts and Culture in Kyiv, Ukraine. Her Sadok Ukrainian Dance Ensemble has continually pushed the

boundaries of the art form by entertaining and educating their audience about their Ukrainian heritage. They have performed throughout the Okanagan, Vancouver, Alberta and Los Angeles. In March of 2008, the troupe performed at Disneyland, California where they shared their culture with the world. “This excitingly vibrant and colourful dance is always enjoyed by audiences of both Ukrainians and nonUkrainians alike,” said Malysh. “We invite you all to join in an afternoon of dance, drama and Ukrainian spirit.” The performance starts at 2 p.m. Tickets are $17 for adults, $15 for students 18 and under and seniors 60-plus, and $10 for pre-schoolers at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

A gruesome murder is about to take place aboard the B.C. Express Stagecoach at O’Keefe Ranch, and it’s up to the public to find out whodunit. The ranch has announced the return of its popular murder mystery dinner theatre as part of its special event line up for 2010. The mystery takes place next weekend, Friday and Saturday, with another show expected in the fall. “The murder mystery is entertainment and good food in one package,” said O’Keefe’s general manager Catherine Lord. “It’s something a bit different, and gives people a great night out with a few laughs.” Those who attend will be entertained by a cast of suspicious characters, one of whom is responsible for the murder on the historic B.C. Express. The play has been written by Ken Mather, who will also act as the stern sheriff, helping guests solve the mystery. Attendees can be as involved as they want, and will have an opportunity to question suspects, and become involved with solving the mystery. A tantalizing meal by the Cattlemen’s Club Restaurant will be served up for the show. Tickets are $39.95 (plus taxes) for the dinner theatre, which starts at 6 p.m., or $45.95, which includes an O’Keefe Ranch tour prior to the event, starting at 5 p.m. Call 250-542-7878 to book, or visit okeeferanch. ca for more information.

Capsule Comments with

TOM NOLAN Myopia is an eye condition in which the eye is unable to focus on distant objects. It’s also called short or near-sightedness. Today, there are 1.6 billion people worldwide who have this condition and the numbers are steadily increasing. Some of the blame for this increase is due to kids viewing more things close up (video games, television) and less time outdoors. From the U.K. comes the 4 secrets of a long and healthy life. We’ve mentioned these in various ways in this column in the past but they stand the test of time. Here they are: Don’t smoke; restrict alcohol intake to two drinks per day (one for women); eat at least five servings of fruit and veggies daily; daily exercise. A fifth one is called “coherence”. How manageable and meaningful you feel your life is. Just a quick note on exercise: If you walk briskly for 30 minutes daily, you can burn 850 calories per week. A 15-minute jog will do the same thing. The positive side effects to mental well-being are not measurable but you will feel better. With all the sources of health information today, it is very important to read them critically. Does a particular story about a new drug apply to you? You have to dig a bit deeper than the headlines and see what group of people the drug was tested on. What were the ages, gender and general health of the participants? Once you check these points, it’s also important to check the credibility of the sources. As pharmacists, we keep in touch with new information from the worlds of pharmacy and medicine. We can help check on a story for you. Information is our stock in trade. We can certainly use our knowledge to increase your knowledge.

bat of an eyelash which, if both this film and Dear John are any indication, are the prime goods that Seyfried has in her arsenal. (Though, to be fair, she was awfully spunky in Mamma Mia.) But other than a lazy, predictable script and some equally sloppy execution, Letters To Juliet is a harmless charmer that, if your patience holds out long enough, hits the right notes eventually. And, might I say, this thing’s so beautiful looking that it’s inevitably going to do wonders for the Italian tourism industry.

Folk legend keeps it in the family Shari Ulrich finds son and records songs in the process Morning Star Staff

She’s had a taste of the Pied Pumkin, hung out with Valdy’s Hometown Band and joined in the harmonies of UHF, and now B.C. Entertainment Hall of Fame inductee Shari Ulrich is finding her way back to the North Okanagan with a brand new CD and tour. Ulrich will be at Lumby’s Charles Bloom Theatre (in Charles Bloom Secondary School) Thursday, and Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Saturday, and is bringing along a few special guests with her, including her 19-yearold daughter Julia Graff, long-time partner, jazz artist Bill Runge, and Jane Mortifee on vocals. The tour is in support of Ulrich’s seventh solo CD, Found Our Way, which features some deepfelt songs with a personal story behind them. In August, 2007, Ulrich spontaneously signed up for one of those websites that helps reunite adopted children with their birth parents. Within 48 hours, she was talking on the phone with the son she had handed over 39 years earlier when she was 16. “He was born in the unwed mothers’ home I was sent to in San Francisco and, thanks to my mother’s wise influence, gave him up for adoption,” said Ulrich, who has always been generous about sharing

B.C. music legend Shari Ulrich, with daughter Julia Graff, tours on the release of her new CD, Found Our Way. She stops at the Charles Bloom Theatre in Lumby Thursday and Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Saturday. her personal joys and sorrows with her fans on her web blog. “I have never been secretive about this part of my past, and even wrote a song about him in the late ‘70s called Mysterious Child.” The joyful reunion is chronicled on the song By the Grace of Goodbye on Find Our Way, which Ulrich actually got to perform with her son, Mike Magee, who, it turns out, plays percussion. The family gathering took place at the CD release party at Vancouver’s Rogue Folk Club May 7. “I saw and heard his talent a mere few days after we met when he accompanied me to the Canmore Folk Festival and we grazed by the drum booth in the craft area. I was blown away by his time and feel on those drums,” said Ulrich. “So when I was pondering a percussionist for the concert, I had a classic

light bulb moment. It seemed too perfect an opportunity, bringing all these pieces together for the concert. Fortunately he was totally keen.” Also joining Ulrich at the release party was her daughter, Julia, who has been studying at McGill University in Montreal. In fact, the new album contains a song, (Now You’re) Gone, that is inspired by Julia leaving home to go to university. A multi-instrumentalist, Ulrich plays guitar, mandolin, fiddle, piano, cello and accordion on the album, while her daughter fills in on violin. Bass and piano is provided by Runge with additional contributions from Barney Bentall (harmonica), Karen Savoca (percussion) and David Celia (guitars). Transplanted from San Rafael, Calif., during the height of the flower child era, Ulrich made a name for herself

Choir sings for the love of Glee Morning Star Staff

Gleeks are in for a treat when a local allfemale choir performs many of the tunes made popular on a certain Fox TV show, and we’re not talking about American Idol. On Tuesday, the Cadence Youth Chorus will be putting on its year-end concert, A

Modern Day Romance. All the music is contemporary pop featuring many songs from the TV show Glee. “The progression of music is such that it takes you through some of the highs and lows of falling in and out of love,” said Cadence leader Kimberley van Wensem.

“I am striving to create shows that are unique and interesting, so we aren’t your typical choir.” Some of the music to be performed includes Somebody to Love by Freddie Mercury, Keep Holding On by Avril Lavigne, Halo by Beyonce, Make You Feel My Love by Bob Dylan

and many others. “The girls will be moving and dancing and even out trying to get the audience involved,” said van Wensem. Tuesday’s show starts at 7:30 p.m. at Peace Lutheran Church (1204 30th Ave.) Admission is $10 at the door.

The latest music is reviewed every Friday in Street Sounds

Understanding MLS

A

ny of us who have ever read real estate ads have seen the abbreviation MLS. However, even though the term is very familiar, few know what it stands for and what itsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; history is. MLS stands for Multiple Listing Service. It is a member-based service. The concept was birthed by realtors in an effort to have an organized system developed to better serve both realtors and consumers. In many countries this system of co-operation does not exist and the consumer still has to go from one real Jane Field estate company to another in order to gain knowledge of all available properties. Not to mention how difficult it is for sellers in those countries to clearly establish what their properties are worth with the sold data scattered everywhere. But, this is not true here in Canada. We have an absolutely wonderful system which realtors have evolved over several decades. In Canada, you can select a realtor that you know and trust or one that has been recommended to you. That selected realtor can research the entire MLS system (meaning check the listings of all real estate board members) and produce a very complete shortlist of available properties that best suit a clientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s requirements. How convenient is that, versus going to 10 or 12 real estate companies and talking to 10 or 12 realtors you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know. MLS is much more than a database. It was conceived as a method of realtors fully co-operating with one another to develop a system that gives buyers and sellers access to the most complete information possible. It is operated by the individual real estate

REAL ESTATE

boards and solely paid for by individual realtors. In our case, it is operated by the Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board and its realtor membership. Through www.realtor.ca, also known as www. mls.ca, you can obtain considerable detail on all listed properties. This would include both interior and exterior pictures, square footages, exterior finishes, number of bedrooms and baths, locations, prices, zoning, property size, taxes and much more. Realtors source even more information out of this system. That would include sold histories on each property, tax assessments, market activity data etc. This sort of information is very thorough and reliable because the vast majority of property transactions are MLS based. Data fed to the MLS system from licensed realtors and their administrative support is monitored for accuracy. We realtors are both proud and grateful for this great machine called the MLS system. It works so very well for both realtors and their clients and customers. I think it is more than worth every penny it has ever cost our realtors. Jane Field works with Re/Max Vernon. Jane has 35 years experience in the real estate business. To suggest topics for future articles or to ask Jane questions, e-mail her at jane@janefield.com or call 5033755.

Woodwork opens new opportunities PATCH HUTCHINSON Special To The Morning Star

Adversity became opportunity and launched a new career for Donald Fortin. The owner of DWF Hardwood Designs in Lumby began making wooden boxes began in 2000. “My daughter wanted me to make a box for her. Then I made a few more and they started to get more and more elaborate,” said Fortin. He was a supervisor at the Lavington glass plant. When the glass plant closed, he decided to go full time. He sells through the Vernon Art Gallery and at Northwest Fine Woodworking and La Conner Gallery in Washington State. For the last eight years, his Internet site has generated much of his business and he has shipped hardwood boxes to the U.S., Australia, England and Ireland. He competed with artisans from around the world to get the $1,800 order from Steamboat Colorado for a poker box that would hold 300 poker chips custom-made from jade and ivory with inlaid detail. “Poker is big right now and some people will not go outside of their comfort zone. I asked for a chip to measure and the rest was up to me,” said Fortin who received only a scale-model chip, as the originals were too valuable. “I am the little man from Lumby making this. I often tell people that I am one of Lumby’s best kept secrets.”

PATCH HUTCHINSON PHOTO

Donald Fortin, of DWF Designs in Lumby, has sold hardwood boxes to the U.S., Australia, England and Ireland. Other boxes have travelled around the world on romantic

adventures. “You meet some interesting

people,” said Fortin, who was asked by a man in Ireland to custom-

make a box for an engagement ring. “He bought a ring in New York and then flew to Spain and proposed to (his lady.) He e-mailed me back and told me, ‘She said yes.’ It was an amazing story.” His target market is corporate gifts. In addition to his specialty DWF box, selection includes highend jewellery boxes and ring boxes that were sometimes lined with silver trim, pens and pen sets with gold plated trim, clocks, business cards display cases and tea lights holders. His selection of wood includes oak, curly maple, ebony, beetlewood and cedar and every piece was numbered and signed. He has constructed some items from rare petrified ironwood he found in his uncle’s basement. “It is really hard on the equipment,” said Fortin. Fortin is president of the North Thompson Woodworking Guild in Kamloops. He was also a director and exhibitor of the Wood Co-op Gallery on Granville Island in Vancouver. Unfortunately the gallery closed at the end of March. “They had a roof collapse and did not recover from that day forward,” said Fortin, explaining that relocation to a small temporary space was not successful. “That is going to be a tremendous blow to the artistic community.” Fortin will be Creative Chaos from June 4 to 6 at the Vernon Recreation Complex.

Vernon identified as expensive city for recreational property Morning Star Staff

Vernon has some of the costliest recreational land in Canada, according to a new survey. The 2010 Re/Max Recreational Property Report has identified the most expensive sites in Canada, including $1.15 million in Vernon. The report, highlighting sales, prices, trends and developments in close to 50

markets from coast-to-coast, found that 79 per cent of recreational areas reported an upswing in the number of properties sold during the first three months of the year. Starting prices for recreational product were also on the move, with 43 per cent posting a nominal increase. Inventory levels, with the exception of the coveted entry-level price point, were healthy and balanced market conditions prevailed in most areas.

“Stronger than expected economic recovery, combined with additional incentives such as rising interest rates, stricter lending criteria, and a new sales tax, have served to kick-start activity in recreational property markets from coast-to-coast,” said Elton Ash, regional executive vice-president. “Entry-level product is experiencing the greatest demand this year, as value-driven purchasers look to stretch their dollar as far

This is especially true in Western Canada, where values have softened considerably year-over-year, but are now starting to firm up.” The other most expensive recreational property markets included Sylvan Lake, Alta. at $1.2 million, Tofino, B.C. at $875,000, Cultus Lake/Harrison Lake, B.C. at $800,000, Whistler, B.C. at $799,000 and Salt Spring Island, B.C. at $750,000.

Shanghai office promotes trade Morning Star Staff

Western Canada will have a stronger presence in China. Alberta, British Columbia and Saskatchewan have opened the Shanghai-based Western Canada Trade and Investment Office. The goal is to promote the provinces’ green technology, natural resources and agricultural sector. It will also promote other sectors, including Campbell education, tourism and investment attraction. “British Columbia is pleased to partner with Saskatchewan and Alberta in promoting Western

Canada’s advantages to Chinese investors and partners,” said Premier Gordon Campbell. “British Columbia already operates three of its own trade and investments offices in China and the new Shanghai office will help build on our position as Canada’s Pacific Gateway.” The joint office is part of the recently forged New West Partnership agreement between Alberta, B.C. and Saskatchewan. A key element of the partnership is a commitment to collaborate on international initiatives, including sharing resources in international markets. “We are making it as easy as possible for investors to do business in the West, and to pursue opportunities which only exist here,” said Brad Wall, Saskatchewan premier.

YOU AND THE LAW “CRUMBLING SKULL” REDUCES DAMAGES By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. Bawn Booth hiked and took long walks with her dog before she was hit in a car crash (the defendant went through a red light and struck her right front fender). After the accident, she suffered ongoing back pain, especially when sitting for a long time, walking up stairs and going on longer walks. She moved to a smaller acreage and needed help with chores. It turned out that Booth had degenerative arthritis before the accident (even though she had no symptoms), which the accident hastened and aggravated. However, even without the accident, the arthritis would most likely have started to soon cause her pain and stiffness anyway. Is the defendant (and ICBC) still responsible for her injuries?

better position. Typically, the court deducts a percentage off the total damages to reflect the “contingency” (probability) that the pain and limited movement would show up regardless of the accident. In Booth’s case, the judge decided that a large deduction was appropriate because her degenerative condition was “severe.” Damages for her pain and suffering, which were assessed at $55,000, were reduced by 25%; her total compensation amounted to some $93,000.

With Cheri-Lynne Gohringer, however, the BC Supreme Court deducted only 10%. Hit head-on by a street sweeper, she suffered injuries to her ribs and left shoulder plus a sprain to her neck and back.

Outback garners recognition Morning Star Staff

A Vernon resort has been recognized for its use of wood. The Outback and Kevin Ryan, with Coast Architectural Group, won the multiunit residential wood design award during the recent Wood Works B.C. Wood Design Awards â&#x20AC;&#x153;The awareness and appreciation for wood is growing at an unprecedented rate,â&#x20AC;? said Mary Tracey, Wood Works B.C. executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As world attention focuses on our environment, wood continues to gain momentum as its environmental attributes are recognized.â&#x20AC;? It was noted that environmental responsiveness was integrated with cultural heritage and sensitivity into The Outback. There were more than 100 nominations in 12 categories for the 2010 awards from all over B.C. and one from the Yukon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing wood used in unique and innovative ways both architecturally and structurally which showcase its beauty, strength, versatility and cost effectiveness,â&#x20AC;? said Tracey. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The increasing variety, diversity and sheer number of projects using wood is without a doubt building the already burgeoning wood culture in B.C.â&#x20AC;? Wood Works is a national industry-led initiative of the Canadian Wood Council, with a goal to support innovation and provide leadership on the use of wood and wood products. It provides education, training and technical expertise to building and design

Special To The Morning Star

ARIZONA - As Nevada’s scorching desert sun soaked into my shoulders and back, I tingled all over at the prospect of plunging into the cool Mohave waters. And with only desert hills, the scent of sagebrush and a family of big-horn sheep for company, I inched forward until swoosh, giggle, splash, the heat of my naked body met its chill factor. But within minutes, I was back on board the houseboat, sitting atop the slide, and ready for the next descent. After a few days in the ever-morphing, sensory-overloaded Las Vegas, this was antithesis absolute. And getting here had been half the fun. The adventure began on the Colorado River at the foot of the monolithic Hoover Dam. A Black Canyon rafting trip is the only way to view the dam’s aweinspiring 247-squaremile surface from such a humbling perspective, and as the 30-passenger motorized craft started its journey down river, the vivacious crowd had grown quiet, obviously pondering the enormity of the dam’s structural engineering. And what lay behind it; Lake Mead is the largest man-made lake in the United States, extending 110 miles and holding some 28.5-million-acre-feet of water. Within minutes, though, the vistas changed. Reinforced concrete walls gave way to nature’s own – canyons that towered some 2,000 feet up into the sky; rock crevices steaming with near-boiling spring waters and an array of anomalous, tropical vegetation. Along the rock faces were petroglyphs left by the Southern Paiute and Anasazi Indians who once settled here, as well as large brass rings embedded into

Early European settlers had used them to winch paddle wheelers through the river’s turbulent waters. Then there are the osprey nests, great blue herons, eagles and big horn sheep which scramble effortlessly over the stunning volcanic rock formations that drop without remorse into the water. The rafting trip through Black Canyon ends at Willow Beach Harbor. Once the transfer point for workers on the Hoover Dam, today it is a backwater marina for fisherman as well as the transfer point to buses back to Las Vegas. However, with a little planning, the best of your desert vacation is yet to come. This is where to catch a boat-connector to Lake Mohave and an even more exhilarating ride down the Colorado River as it opens up to reveal rolling desert hills West across Nevada and East into Arizona, and the crystal blue waters of Lake Mohave just 30 minutes later.

Luxury boats await at Mohave Continued from previous page Our 50-foot houseboat had already been moved from its home base at Cottonwood Cove Marina, and was anchored at a secluded bay beach alongside a zippy 18-foot ski boat and various water-toys such as skis and a towable donut. A hot tub and water slide were part of the houseboat package as were all the comforts of a modern, floating home. Even the fridge had been stocked to order. The contrast of where we had been just hours before, to where we were now, was startling. First was the space â&#x20AC;&#x201C; vast expanses of water, sand and sky. And nothing else. Then there was the silence. Not even a soft buzz of an insect. And then came the clarity of a star-filled sky â&#x20AC;&#x201C; brighter and inkier than we had ever seen. From sensory overload, we had come to a place of sensorial perception. And as we

GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20) Be extremely careful of crossing the line and becoming much too possessive of someone you love. If you attempt to tighten the reins, you could squeeze all the love out of the relationship.

PISCES (FEB. 20-MARCH 20) The action of your peers might unintentionally challenge your feelings of self-worth, and make you feel worthless. If you have enough faith in yourself and your good intentions, you’ll get over it.

CANCER (JUNE 21-JULY 22) Don’t waste your time attempting to cater to someone who you think can do you some good, careerwise. This individual is all talk, and has nothing to offer but humiliation.

ARIES (MARCH 21-APRIL 19) Even if it inconveniences you, go out of your way to assist someone who could be of vast help to your career prospects. It would be a major mistake not to do so when you get the chance.

LEO (JULY 23-AUG. 22) There is a strong possibility that your laxity on following good health procedures could catch up with you at this time. If you have let yourself go, something important could stop working today. VIRGO (AUG. 23-SEPT. 22) If you haven’t shown any proper appreciation to someone who has gone out of his/her way to help you in the past, you might experience a snub today. It’ll be a big, needless loss for you. LIBRA (SEPT. 23-OCT. 23) It’s best not to bring up an issue on which you and your special someone are diametrically opposed. It won’t be resolved, but rehashing it can do more damage to your relationship. SCORPIO (OCT. 24-NOV. 22) If you’re going to do something for another today, don’t make that person feel uncomfortable about what you undertake on his/her behalf. Do so without fanfare or obligation. SAGITTARIUS (NOV. 23-DEC. 21) Being more impressed by what people have than who they are won’t make you too popular, but more importantly, it could cause you to ignore people who have wonderful friendships to offer. CAPRICORN DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Don’t collect any guilt or loss if you t fail to please certain people. As long as you did your best, you will have nothing to berate yourself over or feel guilty about. AQUARIUS (JAN. 20-FEB. 19) Even though no ill will is intended, if you are careless in your speech, and thoughtlessly say something that could be offensive to your listeners, you’ll need to apologize.

TAURUS (APRIL 20-MAY 20) Find a way to communicate with someone who means a lot to you but is not around at the moment. A failure to find a way to do so could mean a permanent loss of ever getting closer to that person. YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY There is a strong possibility that you might celebrate your birthday this year many unfinished projects in your wake. In the months ahead make it a point to give each one the attention it deserves before starting any new undertakings.

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

gotpaindoctor.com

Bridge by Phillip Alder When declarer does not recognize the danger to his contract, he will often fall to defeat. But when he sees the risk, he will usually find a solution -- if there is one. What is the danger in this four-heart contract after West leads the spade queen? How can declarer survive? West opened with a weak two-bid. North made a takeout double, then converted South’s three-club advance to three diamonds. In this way, he kept hearts in the picture and showed extra values. South went from three diamonds to three hearts, and North raised, playing his partner for six or seven high-card points (the standard tactic for the intervenor after an opposing

pre-emptive opening). Given that East has the spade ace (West would not lead a spade from the A-Q-J), South has three top losers: two spades and one club. So, he has to assume that West holds the heart king. That, though, is not the end of the story. Suppose declarer calls for the spade king at the first trick, wondering if West is being sneaky. East takes his ace, cashes the club ace, and returns his second spade. When West wins that trick and leads another spade, it promotes a trump trick for the defense. Either East overruffs the dummy or West scores his king. If South sees the danger, he will play low from the

dummy at trick one. Give West that trick, East the next spade and the top club, but West has no entry for the lethal third-spade play. Try to consider the various scenarios based on your play at trick one. Then the danger should become apparent.

HENRI ETIENNE GAUTHIER Henri Etienne Gauthier of Vernon passed away peacefully, at the age of 89 years, with his loving wife by his side at Gateby Care Facility May 17, 2010. Henri was born at Tisdale, SK, December 27, 1920. He farmed in Tisdale and played hockey with their home team winning many tournaments with his dad cheering them on. In 1949 he married Rosemarie Nagel and in 1957 they moved to Kelowna, BC and his work took him to Armstrong and later to Vernon in 1973. Curling was his second sport winning trophies at Kelowna and Armstrong. His faith always came ďŹ rst and he was an alter boy until the age of twenty-six years and a Knight of Columbus 4949 Council for over ďŹ fty years. In 1987 he retired from Crown Zellerback and this gave him freedom for ďŹ shing, travelling, spending winters in Arizona and California and taking up golďŹ ng, playing horse shoes and dancing as long as he was able. He will be forever loved and remembered by his wife, Rosemarie, to whom he was married for sixty years; ďŹ ve children Dennis (Donna) of Red Deer, Roseanne (Ron) Nawosad of Salmon Arm, Lea (Sig) Dreher of Trail, Richard (Louise) of Westbank and David (Rita) of Calgary. Further cherishing his memory are seven grandchildren, one great-grandchild, many nieces, nephews and sisters-in-law. Predeceased by his parents and brothers: Al, Fernand, Edgar and Omar Gauthier. The family would like to thank Drs. Meyer, Kadar and Barnard and staff at Gateby for their excellent care during his illness. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, those wishing to do so may make a memorial donation in Henriâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s memory to the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Society, 865 Bernard Avenue, Kelowna, BC V1Y 6P6. Cremation will precede a Celebration of Remembrance for family and friends which will be held at 11:00 a.m. Saturday, June 5, 2010 at the Chapel of Personal Alternative Funeral Services, 4417 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 29th Street, Vernon, BC. Expressions of sympathy may be forwarded to the family via email: vernon@pafs.net

Duff (Adolf Wilfred) Goodbye GranDuff, we miss your humour and love. On May 15, 2010, Duff (Adolf Wilfred) Plato of Vernon, B.C. passed away suddenly at his home in Vernon, British Columbia. Duff will be lovingly missed by his wife of 53 years, Susan, his children Deborah (Immo), Brenda (David) and Jeffrey (Cheryl). He will also be fondly missed by his 2 granddaughters; Natalie and Tess and his 3 grandsons; Ethan, Jarad and Sawyer. Duff was born in Leader, Saskatchewan on November 14, 1931 to Ewald and Bertha Plato. He grew up on a large family farm outside Ponoka, Alberta with his sisters, Erma (Arthur), Ruth, Shirley (Jim) and Bernie (Al) and his brother Charlie. Duff attended Concordia high school in Edmonton and continued his education at the University of Alberta earning his Bachelor of Electrical Engineering. He enjoyed many successful years with McGregor Construction and retired as President in 2001 after 32 years. Duff married Susan in 1956 and had three children. He loved golďŹ ng with his foursome and skiing with family and friends while squeezing in time to work on his home and yard. His subtle and warm sense of humour made people feel comfortable and welcome at all times. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation would be appreciated.
