Foster won’t follow colleague’s lead RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster says he won’t follow a former colleague’s lead and quit over the harmonized sales tax. Blair Lekstrom, Peace River South MLA, has quit as energy minister and left the Liberal caucus because of public opposition to the HST. “If I felt as strongly as Blair does, I would do what he did. But I believe we need to do it,” said Foster. An anti-HST petition has garnered 9,546 signatures (21.1 per cent of registered voters) in Vernon-Monashee — exceeding the 5,573 votes Foster got dur-
“I am disappointed Blair did this at this time.” — Eric Foster ing the 2009 election. But Foster insists that shouldn’t pressure him to resign caucus. “I still believe it’s good public policy and the public will understand that once it’s in place. I am disappointed Blair did this at this time,” he said. Shuswap MLA George Abbott also continues to stand behind the HST.
“I am surprised and disappointed to hear of his resignation,” Abbott said of Lekstrom. “Blair had spoken in support of the HST as good government policy in the Legislature.” In a written statement, Lekstrom says his first priority is his constituents. “My decision to resign from cabinet and the B.C. Liberal caucus
was very difficult, but I fundamentally disagree with the direction our government is headed on the HST,” he said. “When I was elected, I promised myself, my family and my constituents that I would not change who I am to do this job, and I have reached a point where my beliefs and values no longer align with my government.” Lekstrom says he still believes the HST will benefit the province, but there is a need to re-evaluate the tax based on public opinion. “It would be prudent to bring the move toward the HST to a halt and immediately engage British Columbians in a dialogue about our taxation policy,” he said.
Dan Thorburn, who is organizing the Fight HST petition in Vernon-Monashee, wasn’t surprised by Lekstrom’s decision. “This could be the beginning of people stepping away gracefully,” he said. “People (MLAs) in ridings that are weak are feeling the heat.” Thorburn believe’s Lekstrom’s resignation will bolster the petition campaign, which has until July 5 to collect the signatures of 10 per cent of eligible voters in all of B.C.’s 85 constituencies. “It shows what we’re doing is making some MLAs question if they should vote along party lines or listen to the people they represent,” said Thorburn.

Macnabb believes Teen Junction is social in nature, and churches should be asked to assist. “Is there any appetite to approach organizations like this and see if they are willing to support community activities,” he said. Gavinchuk called on his colleagues to recognize that GVAC’s budget is generated from taxpayers.
“We are too easy with giving out money,” he said.

News Schoolâ€™s longtime legacy celebrated
â€œIt was the first time that I was away from home during the day.â€? â€” Mariye Mori There was no bus when Ernie Palfrey entered Grade 1 in 1934 so he road a horse to class. â€œWe had lots of fun in the basement. In the winter, weâ€™d go down and toast sandwiches on the wood furnace,â€? he said. A skating rink also kept the children busy, but as the weather turned warm, other activities were pursued. â€œWe played marbles and got
into soccer. Weâ€™d often play against Mackie School,â€? said Palfrey. The closing of the current building isnâ€™t the only milestone facing Heather Klassen. She is also retiring after being the schoolâ€™s kindergarten teacher since 1977. â€œItâ€™s very emotional. There are ups and downs,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™m excited to retire but there are times where it gets sentimental.â€? Opportunities to move to other schools were always brushed aside. â€œThis was the nicest school with the people and community here,â€? said Klassen. â€œMy own kids went here. Itâ€™s like family.â€? Over the last 34 years, itâ€™s likely that Klassen has been the first teacher for more than 1,000 children and a fixture for some families. â€œI had a kindergarten orientation and a childâ€™s father said, â€˜You taught me,â€™â€? said Klassen. The original part of the school goes back to 1908 when a board of trustees was formed and a teacher

A second class was built in 1912, and subsequent wings were added right until the 1970s. The physical structure is falling apart, and the additions have created a footprint that is inefficient. Portables have been needed to house students for a number of years. As much as a new school is needed, Haines recognizes the emotional attachment many people have to the present building, and thatâ€™s why Thursdayâ€™s event was held. â€œSeniors were in conversation and students were connecting with former teachers,â€? she said. The Grade 6 class prepared for the celebration by interviewing a number of former students and posting their write-ups in the gym. â€œIt enriched their knowledge of who we are,â€? said Haines. Itâ€™s hoped students will move into the new $13.4 million school
by late September, and while the design will be completely different, Haines is confident that it will continue the proud tradition created by its predecessor. â€œThe reality is weâ€™re going into a new building and we will start new memories for children,â€? she said.

Eight decades may have slipped by, but that didnâ€™t stop former Coldstream Elementary students from wanting to reconnect with their roots. A steady flow of people toured through the classes and hallways one last time Thursday as the building will soon make way for a new school and be demolished. â€œColdstream school is at the heart of the community,â€? said principal Judi Haines. â€œSchools are places that create wonderful memories so getting a chance to wander around and relive those experiences was wonderful.â€? Among them was Flo Trumbley, who started Grade 1 there in 1926. â€œWhen I first started, there were just two rooms,â€? she said, adding that sports were always popular. â€œI did a lot of racing and running.â€? Also starting school in 1926 was Mariye Mori. â€œI walked from the Coldstream
Ranch (where she lived) every day. It was the first time that I was away from home during the day,â€? she said. â€œI didnâ€™t know a word of English when I started. I wasnâ€™t sure how I got into Grade 2.â€?

Neighbourhood furious over marmots RICHARD ROLKE

Marmots are creating numerous problems for residents on 35th Street. the city to hire a wildlife professional to remove the marmots. “This will prevent expensive legal action by the residents and owners of the properties on this street, which action would include costs of the damages done by these animals and be considerable more expensive for the city,” said Steernberg. Official City of Vernon policy is there is nothing it can do about the marmots. “There isn’t any responsibility on behalf of the city,” said Kim Flick, planning and building services manager. “It’s up to the residents to deal with it.” But Flick says the city is sympathetic towards the plight of the residents.

One Vernon neighbourhood is demanding the city crack down on a rodent infestation. Residents in the 3200 block of 35th Street say they are having an ongoing marmot problem. “My neighbours and I have had hundreds of dollars worth of damage to plants, and have had our patios, decks and sidewalks covered with marmot droppings,” said Cheryl-Lynn Steernberg in a letter she has sent on behalf of her neighbours to city council. “There is a very real concern about the animals carrying disease and, as our pets eat the droppings, the possible ensuing veterinary bills.” The residents say the marmot problem began when the city granted permits for a condominium complex behind the houses in 2005/06. They claim the blasting and construction forced the marmots that lived there to migrate. “Further, the city approved an open rock wall which is on my property line. This rock wall has now become the home of these adorable but filthy and destructive critters,” said Steernberg. “If this had been a solid retaining wall, we would not have the problem.” The residents want

Morning Star Staff
Elementary students will soon be rediscovering the walk to school thanks to the City of Vernon, Vernon School District and children’s performer Charlotte Diamond. An initiative that encourages getting to school on foot is taking shape. It would see parent volunteers escort students to school from a drop-off point where parents leave them. It’s called the School Travel Plan and, at Okanagan Landing Elementary where Diamond held a performance based on the theme recently, it could be up and walking as soon as this month. “What we’re working on at Okanagan Landing school is getting a safe point on Lakeshore Road so kids can (gather)... and have a parent supervisor walk them to school,” said City of Vernon transportation demand management co-ordinator Wendy Majewski. Along with Surrey, Vernon is one of only two communities in B.C. where the plan is being implemented. Majewski hopes to have the same plan in place at Harwood and Ellison Elementary and three other schools come September. “When children bike or walk to school, teachers find kids are more alert and not as hyper,” said Majewski. “They’re ready to learn.” Diamond and her husband have a home and live part of the year in the Vernon area. She wrote some songs while sitting near Okanagan Lake for a new album

Concerns arise over compacting RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
There’s concerns that building a new Vernon Secondary School could put nearby homes at risk. Randy Ingleby and other neighbours have been notified that earth compacting will be part of the $40 million project. Because of heavy clay in the area, Ingleby says vibration could undermine foundations. “We’re really put in jeopardy. This is a really sensitive area,” he said. “We have no protection from any damage we may suffer.” One of Ingleby’s concerns is most homes already have previous damage from clay, and that could make it diffi-

A white Chevrolet half-ton pickup was among the items stolen overnight Thursday from the District of Coldstream’s works yard. Police were alerted of the break-in just before 8 a.m. Friday. “Overnight, unknown person or persons broke in to the yard,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “They then cut a lock to the shop to gain entry.” From inside the shop, they stole the truck with licence plate 3552-JG and marked with the District of Coldstream logo. Before leaving, the
suspects also stole a generator, a Makita saw, a Makita hammer drill and two M-Scope line locators, used for locating underground lines.
The total value of the theft is about $55,000. The suspects then drove through a gate to get out of the yard. Anyone with any

It all started....
lthough it’s been denied as a non-starter and that talks never happened, apparently the Grit-NDP merger rumour all stems from a trip to the bar by a couple of disgruntled Liberal backbenchers and a couple of frustrated NDP backbenchers with stars in their eyes. And apparently it went something like the following: NDP MP #1: “Well, just another day at the office. I’m getting tired of being a nobody on the Hill. Heck, I’m hardly a somebody in my own riding. We’ll never form government and I’ll never be part of the ruling party.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Yeah, it sucks to be you. You’re probably a Leaf fan too.” Glenn Mitchell NDP MP #1: “Yeah, so.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Oh, never mind. Hey, we’re not much better off. Have you seen the polls lately? Our leader, Michael Alphabet, is leading us nowhere fast. And that’s against a hugely unpopular prime minister. Ever since that huge miscue of demanding an election that nobody wanted, we’ve been treading water at best, and drowning in our own bathwater at worst. We’ve been playing revolving leaders and now we may have to do it again. Heavy sigh.” NDP MP #1: “Oh suck it up sunshine. At least you’re No. 2. We’ve been No. 3 for decades and how is it ever going to change? There’s only so many left-wingers out there and too many right-wingers out west that think NDP stands for Never, Don’t and Politburo.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Oh, cry me a river. You know what our slogan is out west........No, no, we’re not the Communists, that’s the NDP.” NDP MP #1: “Gee, thanks.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Well, we’re thinking of changing it, it hasn’t been working that well.”
NDP MP #2: “You guys are giving me a headache with all your whining.” LIBERAL MP #2: “Yeah, I’ve heard it all before. Unless you’ve got some dramatic idea to solve all our problems why don’t you shutup and we’ll all go back to drowning our sorrows.” (They all take a drink) NDP MP #1: (whispering) “Well, there is one idea I’ve been hearing.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Go ahead, make my day.” NDP MP#1: “It’s a minority government right?

We drop our Liberal principles and heritage, which includes most of the prime ministers in our history, and join you just so we have some chance of ever getting elected again?” NDP MP#1: “Yup.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Ummm, interesting.” NDP MP#2: “Plus we’d have to abandon our principles of fighting for the little guy and the working stiff and move somewhere into the middle all in some vain and likely unsuccessful power grab.” NDP MP#1: “Yup.” NDP MP#2: “OK, I’m listening.” LIBERAL MP #1: “Well, we’ve already got Bob Rae with us. Didn’t he used to be an NDP premier of Ontario or something?” NDP MP#2: “Bob Rae left us?” LIBERAL MP #1: “You’ve got to get out more pal. OK, I’m sensing this idea might have some legs. And if we play it right we could get some momentum going here. Heck all we’ve got to do is call it the Non-Conservative Party and we’re halfway there. OK, let’s meet again next week and everybody bring a friend OK? This could be the start of something big, boys..........”
The images of oil-covered pelicans flopping around on deserted Louisiana beaches are heartbreaking. The numbers surrounding the oil rig disaster in the Gulf of Mexico are frightening; 5,000 barrels of crude gushing into fishing beds and holiday beaches, hundreds of thousands of metres of absorbent booms deployed to try to contain the slick, millions of litres of toxic dispersant chemicals poured to try to break up the viscous goo. While officials talk bravely about the amount of money they’re willing to spend to “make it right,” the toll of the disaster defies the debit column on a ledger sheet. How do you put a price on the death of a pelican? How do you quantify the tourists who won’t vacation on Gulf beaches? How do you accurately account for the lost livelihoods from fisheries that will likely be closed for years to come? It’s easy to blame British Petroleum, whose rig blew up. It’s easy to cast a stink eye to regulators who often succumb to industry pressure and assurances they can police themselves. It’s easy to denounce governments so hungry for huge tax revenues they ignore the warnings of environmentalists. But we must all shoulder some of the blame. North Americans are responsible for one quarter of the world’s daily oil consumption. And despite years of warnings that this finite resource is running out, our consumption continues to increase. Until we come to grips with those numbers, and work seriously to reverse them, we’ll continue to compel oil companies to put our environment at risk to sate our thirst for crude. — New Westminster News Leader

Lake is a possible solution
ake water for Vernon from the lake not the creek says W. Lighfoot in the letter published Wednesday, May 19. I agree. The lake is a natural storage area and it would eliminate all those dams and reservoirs on the creeks. Also, the impact of withdrawing water on the aquatic ecosystems is far less on a large body of water such as a lake than on small creeks. In addition, by changing the water withdrawals to the lake there is the added benefit for the Shuswap River. How you may ask? The Shuswap River isn’t near Vernon. It goes out of Mabel Lake past Enderby and into the Shuswap Lake. This is because one of the creeks that Vernon gets water from is Duteau Creek. This creek naturally flows into the Shuswap drainage. However, since the water licence of Sept. 1, 1906, number C32119, this water has been diverted from the Shuswap drainage into the Okanagan system via Vernon. This water would normally flow into Shuswap Lake and into the ocean at Vancouver via the Fraser River. But now this water cannot flow back to the natural system. It goes into Okanagan Lake and into the NOT RIGHT I think your readers should be aware of the current fines levied by the IHA's parking contractor, fines which are ridiculously high. I received one recently after taking my wife to the emergency department of the hospital at 7 a.m. I was in a hurry, needless to say, and admit to having forgotten to get a parking ticket from the idiot machine installed there. This machine must have been constructed by a company employing people whose job it is to design a contraption which causes headaches for every person who attempts to use it. It reads that the fine is $30 or $57 if not paid immediately. Such a sum is outrageous and I believe IHA should take steps to do two things: Remove the machine and replace it with one that the elderly and sick people can use with ease, and stop farming the parking job out to a mercenary Vancouver
ocean in the United States. This type of diversion of water into a different watershed was noted as a problem by the Okanagan Shuswap Land and Resource Management Plan. This plan for crown land, of which the city and regional district are aware, specifically recognizes this as being an unsustainable practice. How much water is diverted from Duteau Creek? The water licence is for 15,000 acre feet a year. This is enough to give every person in Vernon 68,000 gallons a year. That’s a lot of water. Imagine the effect on the Shuswap River system of the loss of this water. So when you water your lawns and pas-
company and institute a fee schedule which is fair and controlled locally. Alan Hill DOG PARK There are new regulations in place at the BX Dog Park. Signs have been erected to direct and inform its various users. This came as a complete surprise to dog walkers who had believed the recent efforts of putting in bridges and extending the trail to Haynes Rd. was on their behalf. These changes have many finding a problem dealing with “no dogs beyond the 1st bridge" and “no smoking”, etc. indicated on the signage. I am not saying roll over and play dead, however, the majority are mature enough to come to grips with these changes. Everyone still speaks highly of the incredible jewel we have where dogs can be 'off leash' and still access the creek to quench their thirst and have a quick swim.
tures, it is at the expense of the Shuswap River. In the summer high water temperatures kill fish. More water in the Shuswap River system would mean cooler water and better for the fish. Although a Federal Fisheries order of February 17, 1971 requires a minimum release of four to eight cubic feet per second, depending on the time of year, a report says that in a dry year there is “little or no flow to meet this requirement.” Too bad if you are a fish in the Shuswap River. This diversion scheme and water licence was done in a colonial period at a time when Europeans were new to this area. It
Most I have spoken with are still willing to care take the park and do whatever it takes to see even this (limited access) continue. Some have suggestions and those have been forwarded to the proper authorities. A few excellent compromises would be to extend the 'no dogs zone' to the 2nd bridge as many don't venture beyond it and/or consider 'on-leash' rules after the bridges up to Haynes. Please make any other suggestions to Al McNiven at Parks and Recreation or on Facebook - search BX Dog Park Dig Vernon Dig. In summary, a definition of 'civilization' includes~ ”a society in an advanced state of social development” and hopefully all parties can be civilized. G. Marrs SNAKES SALUTE I would like to thank the Vernon Vipers hockey team for making the Vernon fans extremely proud and
reflects a world view that sees nature as something to be dominated and manipulated for human use. This world view can be traced to the ideas of Frances Bacon, who, in 1620, promoted the idea of controlling nature and seeing it as a machine. He said we should take “command over things natural.” It is this world view of manipulation of nature that is the cause of our current planetary environmental problems. There is an opportunity to change our relationship with nature and begin to live sustainably within the limits of our ecosystem. Restore the water flows to the Shuswap River from Duteau Creek and get the water from the lake. Changes need to be made that take into account the natural world we live in and that gives us life. Making this change will be a powerful symbol of our understanding of the human role on this planet. Vernon, tell your officials to take your water from the lake and restore Duteau Creek flows to the Shuswap. Be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Barbara Westerman
for giving us something to cheer about and brag about for the second year in a row. Our Vernon Vipers are one of the most sportsmanlike teams I have had the pleasure of watching, and it is easy to be proud of our team. All of the players are very nice young men and they demonstrate qualities of true gentlemen, on and off the ice. You made me very proud to watch you this past season right up to the final game in Manitoba and bringing home the RBC Cup for the second year in a row. I love watching and cheering for our Vernon Viper players, (go Cole, Thunderstruck). Congratulations to all of our graduating team players that are moving on, and good luck in all your future endeavours, and to the rest of the boys returning for the next season, I can't wait to see what next year will bring.

Quantity of drugs found during search Morning Star Staff
Three people were arrested after RCMP executed a search warrant for drugs at a Vernon apartment Thursday. Members of the community response unit executed the warrant in the 3700 block of 28A Street. “The search of the residence found a quantity of cocaine, heroin, marijuana, cash, scales, as well as further drug paraphernalia,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. There were other suspected drugs located during the search that will need to be sent to an RCMP crime lab for analysis. Many of the drugs that were seized
in this investigation were already packaged for sale on the street. Two men, 22, both of Vernon, were arrested for possession for the purposes of trafficking. The third person, an 18-year-old woman, was arrested for possession of a controlled substance. The two men have been released on conditions by a justice of the peace to appear in court on June 24. The woman was released on a promise to appear June 24. The police are continuing their investigation into this drug operation. Further charges could result after the analysis has been completed and police are able to determine what the suspected drugs are.
Accused given probation Morning Star Staff
A Vernon man received no more jail time after pleading guilty in provincial court Thursday to charges including assault with a weapon causing bodily harm, injuring or endangering animals and utterting threats, along with a pair of probation breaches. Judge Al Betton sentenced Garett Lawrence, 20, to time already served in connection with a pair of incidents, and placed him on three years probation with strict conditions, including anger managementcounselling, and prohibited Lawrence from having any animals or birds in his home for two years. Lawrence was sentenced after admitting his guilt in an incident July 3, 2009, where a 17-year-old girl attended the Vernon RCMP office to say she had been repeatedly assaulted by
a former boyfriend who made threats against her, her pets and her family. After several days in custody, Lawrence was released on conditions, which included not to contact the woman, who said she later received a text message from the accused on July 17. In October 2009, the woman reported she had
been approached from behind by Lawrence while vacuuming her car, and she stated he made threats against her family members. Police report Lawrence turned himself into the Vernon detachment on Nov. 11. Lawrence was credited with 200 days in jail as time served between his cases.

Chief celebrates milestone mark BX-Swan Lake fire chief Bill Wacey thought it might be a bad sign that North Okanagan Regional District community protective services manager Ron Baker showed up to recent meeting. Baker, being Wacey’s boss, is sometimes the bearer of bad news but not this time around. He was in attendance to help recognize Wacey for his 25 years of service as fire chief. “I was only surprised because it was actually 25 years on March 27,” says Wacey. Not one for the limelight, he was shocked, but pleasantly so. Not too much else catches the fit 53-year-old off guard in the fire chief role he’s held since 1999. He’s the longest-serving chief the department has had and oversees the training and deployment of 30 men and women. The Swan Lake Nurseryland fire of 1993 and the contribution his department made in 1998 to a 5,000-hect-
are fire in Salmon Arm are the blazes that most affected him and he worries 2010 could be a bad year too. But he hopes nothing calls for the efforts he and his crews made on the front lines in 2003 when Kelowna was burning. “Seeing hundreds of houses go up in flames, it sunk in the potential for devastation by fire,” he recalls. “Whether it’s a mansion or a shack, everybody’s home is their castle. “The human drama is what stands out to me.” A native of Trenton, Ont., Wacey calls himself an“army-base brat” as his father was a search-andrescue technician. He moved to Comox at 16 when his dad was transferred and almost went in the Canadian Forces himself but when he came to the North Okanagan in the mid1980s, he found the fire department a good fit. Between his full-time job as department manager at Safeway, raising four boys and squeezing in volleyball, slo-pitch (he plays for two teams)

Even though he’s only expected to be at the fire hall on Silver Star Road twice a week, he winds up there almost every day after his Safeway shifts. He expects the same
kind of sacrifice from the paid-on-call firefighters he supervises and makes that abundantly clear during interviews. “When I do interviews with people now, I tell them they’re going to be expected to put in 600 to 800 hours the

first couple of years. Back then (1985) I did an interview, it was 10 minutes and they gave me a pager,” said Wacey. The demands on firefighters are necessary to instill confidence in those coping with emergency situations. “The key is the professionalism,” he says. “When people dial 9-1-1, they fully expect trained emergency services to respond.” His department’s fleet has grown to seven trucks from three and his firefighters are well equipped to handle a variety of fire situations. BX-Swan Lake has more experience in interface fires (forest fires) than any other in the region. “The team effort is phenomenal and we really push that,” he says. “We’ve managed to maintain a very professional fire department and it shines through in the public.”

News Riverwalk starts to crumble RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Enderby officials fear federal bureaucracy is placing a popular recreational asset at risk. The Shuswap River is eroding a portion of the bank near the chamber of commerce office, and it could soon undermine the Riverwalk trail. “We’ve already lost a picnic table and it’s right to the edge of the Riverwalk,” said Coun. Earl Shipmaker. The city wants to reverse the erosion by dumping rock at the site, but the Department of Fisheries and Oceans is unwilling to give its approval. “They want us to do an environmental study. They want us to spend $100,000 to $110,000 and they won’t talk to us until we have the study,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. “We can’t afford to do a study but we have a dangerous situation.” Wejr insists rock won’t harm the environment. “Actually, washing away the bank (from erosion) could be impacting fish habitat,” she said. Shipmaker believes DFO has become too bureaucratic and unresponsive to the needs of
The City of Enderby wants the federal government to allow work to stop erosion along the Shuswap River. the community. “There are less and less Fisheries staff so instead of coming out here and being practical, they just push it off and say they need a report,” he said. Shipmaker is also worried that someone could be hurt if the Riverwalk trail is allowed to collapse. “There is a safety issue there,” he said. The city will write its MLA, MP, the provincial Ministry of Environment and DFO to lobby for action. “It’s dangerous,” said Wejr. “The river keeps cutting away and it’s only going to get worse unless we do something.”

Report to the Community
Community Foundation surpasses $10,000,000 The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan endowment funds under management recently surpassed $10 million.
enable the Foundation to distribute approximately $750,000 per year within the North Okanagan community.
The Foundation was initially incorporated in 1975 by the Vernon Rotary Club under the name “Vernon Benevolent Society”, its purpose to hold charitable donations which would be used to better address the needs of the Vernon community. Over time and several name changes the society is now the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan and its sphere of interest has expanded to include the whole of the North Okanagan.
This strategy has proved successful. As the Foundation Health 27% has become better known its growth has continued to accelerate. In more recent years many of Vernon’s agencies and organizations have also entrusted the management of their funds to the Community Foundation. The Foundation holds and invests substantial sums on behalf of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, The Vernon & District Performing Arts Centre, The North Okanagan Hospice Society, The Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum & Arts Society, The Vernon Community Music School to name but a few.
Growth of the Community Foundation initially was slow, partly by reason that the Foundation has avoided direct aggressive fund raising in competition to the many other worthy charities operating in the North Okanagan. The Foundation’s fund raising strategy has been to encourage donations, particularly testamentary Youth Social Services 12% gifts by will, from citizens in the and Seniors 14% Community who have prospered in their businesses, have enjoyed the wonderful lifestyle in the Scholarships North Okanagan and who are Arts & Culture 17% 21% prepared to return a beneﬁt to their Community.

The Federal Budget of May 2006 eliminated capital gains on listed appreciated shares donated to a charity, providing donors with excellent tax savings for donations of publicly listed shares or mutual funds. David Ellis, FCSI, CFP, a Vernon investment advisor, has provided The Community Foundation with a new website that explains in detail the Donate Shares Gift Program which is designed for individuals, families or corporate donors wishing to support charitable causes in a meaningful way without the time and cost associated with establishing a private foundation. It’s an easy, convenient way to support charitable causes, today and in the future, while receiving important tax beneﬁts. Through this program you can make initial and ongoing contributions to a charitable gift fund managed in perpetuity by the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan. Please visit www.donateshares.com for additional detailed information.
Having achieved the $10 million milestone, the Foundation’s next goal is to raise an additional $5 million over the next ﬁve years which would

A Message from the President
Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum & Arts Society
The past two years have proved difficult for charities. Record low interest rates, negative investment returns and significantly declining donations – all have severely curtailed charitable activities in our community. The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan has shared in the hardship resulting from the recent recession and unfavourable investment climate.
The Armstrong Spallumcheen Museum & Art Society (ASMAS) has benefitted from the North Okanagan Community Foundation in two very distinct ways.
In 2008 donations received by the Community Foundation totalled $1.147 million. In 2009 donations declined to $139,000. As of March 31, 2010 (six months into our fiscal year) donations received or committed total $400,000. All endowment funds donated to the Community Foundation are held in perpetuity, invested and the investment returns used to fund Foundation goals. Through prudent investment strategies the Foundation strives to achieve an annual investment return of 8% of which 5% is paid out in grants, 1% is allocated to administrative costs and the remaining 2% is added back to each fund as a hedge against inflation. In 2008 the Community Foundation experienced a negative investment return of 14.21% as a result of which it was necessary to suspend distributions. In 2009 a positive investment return of 10.13% was achieved. To date seven months into the 2010 fiscal year the investment return stands at 14.86%. The Foundation has more than recovered its recent investment losses and is resuming distributions awarding over
$325,000 in grants in the current year. In early 2010 the Community Foundation reached a milestone in surpassing the $10 million mark in endowment funds under management. With the generous donations received from the Greater Vernon community and with an improving investment climate I am optimistic that the Foundation will be in a position to distribute upwards of $500,000 in the community in the coming year.
Mike Tindall, CFNO President
Over the past 35 years the Community Foundation has made distributions in excess of $3.5 million by way of grants and scholarships. The Foundation is grateful to the individuals, groups and organizations that choose to benefit their community by way of donations to the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan. Only through your generosity do you enable the Foundation to grow and better address the charitable needs of our Community. I would like to personally thank our Board of directors, our Executive Director, our volunteers and in particular our Investment Committee whose wise counsel contributed greatly to our recovery from the recession.
Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation Since its inception as a charitable society in 1981, Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation has worked with the Greater Vernon community to raise millions of dollars to help fund patient and resident care needs both in hospital and residential care facilities in the North Okanagan.
John Cullen, Manager of Emergency and Ambulatory Care
The Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation purchases include an ultrasound unit, mammography equipment, a CT scanner, birthing beds and fetal monitors, IV pumps, scopes for diagnosing and treating cancer, cardiac and vital signs monitors, bladder scanners, a tissue processor, microscopes, a vision machine
for the Armstrong Lions Vision Centre and bathing system tub for a residential care facility. Currently the Hospital Foundation is actively working with the community to raise $7 million dollars to assist in equipping the new Patient Care Tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan partners with the Hospital Foundation by investing and managing a substantial portion of their endowment funds thereby saving the Hospital Foundation management time and minimizing administration and other costs.
Vernon Women’s Transition House Society Vernon Women’s Transition House Society (VWTHS) has been providing services to the North Okanagan since 1980. Programs include transitional shelter and housing, counselling for women and children and support and housing for young parents. These services are provided through residential and community programs. The Vernon Women’s Transition House shelters and supports hundreds of women and children a year. While staying at the Transition House, they receive counselling and support. However, there is no capacity to provide support to women after they leave, or for women who don’t need or want to come to the transition house. Funding assistance for the Women’s Transition House has been supplied in part
by the Community Foundation and has been instrumental in ensuring the continuation of a number of programs according to Executive Director, Debby Hamilton. The Healthy Balance Program, with funding assistance from the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, will provide group and individual counselling to approximately 96 women who have about 200 children between them. These children will benefit from having a healthier, more stable mother. Of these 96 women, many will proceed to enrol in the Bridges Employment Program through Community Futures. Women will also go on to attend college or employment.
A number of years ago, ASMAS found itself in an unusual situation. The organization had received a substantial sum of money from a very supportive Armstrong resident. ASMAS was and still is a group comprised of volunteers and at the time they had little experience managing finances outside of their own personal business. The problem was how to manage this money with the community’s best interests in mind. At first the Society commandeered a couple of volunteers to manage the donation but very soon realized that professional help was needed at which point the Society
The Society reports that “ever since, CFNO has managed our money carefully and with good judgment and the Society takes great comfort in knowing that the money that was entrusted to us, is very well taken care of.” Secondly, ASMAS has been the recipient of grants offered by CFNO, the most recent in 2008. The grant funded a computer that enables the photo archives department to digitize photo archives enabling ASMAS to better preserve their historical information for the use of generations to come.
People In Need Crisis Line In 1975 the Crisis Line began serving the area of Vernon and District with a 24 hour/day, 7 day/week service operating without interruption of service for the entire 35 years. The Crisis Line and Referral Service provide confidential and non-judgmental emotional support to those in distress or despair. Providing callers with appropriate information and community referrals is a significant part of the service and when necessary a caller may be connected to Mental Health Emergency Services or 911 for a life-saving intervention. Volunteers answer calls after successfully completing in-depth training in all aspects related to crisis intervention work. This service is available at no cost to callers throughout the North Okanagan including Revelstoke and the Shuswap. The Crisis line has been the recipient of several grants from the Community Foundation and General Manager, Sharon Durant says,
“without the Community Foundation funding it’s unlikely the Crisis Line would have been able to provide as many services as it does.” The Good Morning Program has been running as long as the Crisis Line. It Sharon Durant, General is a phone-out service to individuals Manager and Kara Durant, who are isolated and/or have high risk Assistant health concerns. This service offers peace of mind; some social connection for Good Morning clients and enables them to live independently, longer. Other programs provided by PIN are the Suicide Prevention Program, Volunteer Training and Community Training.
Allan Brooks Nature Centre MacKenzie Camp The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan provided funds to the Allan Brooks Society in 2008 to assist with the preparation of a Strategic Plan. The Plan was required to assess and build upon the Society’s strengths and to identify areas where improvements were needed to make the organization more effective and responsive to the community. The Society also wanted Learning about nature can be fun. to identify potential partnerships and / or collaborative initiatives to stabilize their operations and further the cause of environmental education and conservation in the Okanagan. Thanks to the funding provided by the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, the Society has been able to improve programs for school groups and the general public. They’ve also provided valuable input to the local Community Plans by way of the Sensitive Ecosystem Inventories which they’ve spearheaded each of the last several years.

Over 1,275 students received age/grade appropriate lessons on the environment at the Centre in 2009 and many more classes received on-site lessons at Coldstream Creek Park learning about and watching Kokanee spawning in September and early October.
63 YEARS OF SERVICE ON MABEL LAKE In 1947 Guy MacKenzie, a United Church minister began taking children out to a camp on Mabel Lake. Since then the MacKenzie Camp has evolved from tents and a barn for rain shelter, to a camp which can accommodate one hundred campers at a time. MacKenzie Camp now includes seven cabins, a craft hall, and the new multi-use Alice Large Hall complete with a modern kitchen, a dining room and a dorm housing forty-eight campers in all seasons. The camp welcomes children from the North Okanagan, all of Western Canada, the USA and as far away as Korea and Japan. Two thirds of the campers are subsidized through fund raising events, grants and camperships making the experience available to all who wish to attend. Construction of the new Alice Large hall began in 2002, and has continued for the last seven years as funds became available. In the spring of 2010, with the help of a grant from the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan, the United Church of Canada, individual donors, and many hours of volunteer work, the siding on the new hall was completed.

Conversation with George Galbraith “If the last recession has shown us anything it’s that agencies that rely on government grants can no longer do so,” says Vernon philanthropist George Galbraith. “It’s critically important that these groups take a long-term view, start their own endowment funds, get into planned giving and begin generating their own earnings.” Galbraith built and operated Vercom Cable George Galbraith Services Ltd., Vernon’s cable system, which he sold in 1991 to Shaw Communications where he continues to sit on the Board of Directors. He is strongly in favor of letting existing foundations manage community endowments. “It’s less costly to operate that way,” he says, “and you’re sure that all of the detailed annual government and taxation paperwork is being taken care of in a timely manner.” A member of the Community Foundation Board from 1990 to 2000, Galbraith has three funds with the Foundation for management; the Galbraith Family Fund, the Caroline Galbraith Cancer Fund and the
Caroline Galbraith Endowment Fund. Earnings from these funds are distributed annually at the family’s direction. His family has been working with and making donations to Vernon and area charities for decades. “My family has a long history in Vernon,” says Galbraith. “My mother Lillian was always involved in charitable work and my wife Caroline was as well so I just naturally fell into it.” In fact in 1975 George’s uncle, Horace Galbraith, made the ﬁrst donation to the Vernon Benevolent Society, the predecessor of today’s Community Foundation. “When you’re younger and in business you donate your time to help manage charities,” says Galbraith, “then when you’re closer to retirement and not around as much you begin donating money.” Galbraith favors making donations where matching funds can be used to multiply the effect of the original donation through matching dollars from private sources, from government or from other foundations. And he always makes sure that a portion of his donations go toward education. “I really enjoy donating to scholarships and bursaries,” he says “and I’m always happy to hear from donation recipients about how they spent the money and how they’re doing now.”
Sincere Thanks to Our Donors The Community Foundation of the North Okanagan joins with the service groups, charities and organizations who have beneﬁtted from Foundation funding in thanking the individuals and groups who have so generously supported the Community Foundation. Without the generous participation of our many donors, an untold number of worthwhile community projects might never reach their goals. Our sincere thanks to each and every one of you.

New Foothills park receives cash RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A new park in a Vernon neighbourhood is getting a financial boost. The Greater Vernon Advisory Committee will direct $18,000 towards the city’s construction of a 1,800-square-foot tot lot on Copper Mountain Park. “Tot lots are valuable
and it’s a way to help that neighbourhood,” said Patrick Nicol, a GVAC director. “There are some young families up there and there will always be young families up there.” The developers of the Country Springs Estates subdivision had donated playground equipment in the late 1990s with the under-
standing that the equipment would be installed in a park there. But the subdivision’s population didn’t warrant a park at that time, so the equipment was installed at Alexis Park and $18,000, representing the value of the equipment, was put in reserves for a playground when a park was constructed at Country Springs.
GVAC, under North Okanagan Regional District policy, no longer constructs tot lots, so the matter is now a city responsibility. “The City of Vernon has had requests from area residents to develop a small park/ amenity area,” said Al
Scam hits phone company Morning Star Staff
Telus is alerting its customers to a phone scam making the rounds. In a 24-hour period last week, Telus officials say they received a significant number of customer calls about the scam. Customers reported picking up a phone call from a 905-395-XXXX exchange to hear a recorded message: “Hello, because you are a valued Telus customer you will receive 3,000 travel dollars. To accept press 1.” Any customers who press 1 are connected to a person who, Telus said, misrepresents themselves
as working for Telus and tries to extract personal information from them, likely for identity theft. One Morning Star employee received such a call Wednesday, and simply hung up. Telus media relations spokesman Shawn Hall said the calls are a scam, and are not coming from the phone company. Telus advises anyone who receives such a call to simply hang up. If you have received a call and given personal information, please contact your local police detachment, or call Telus’s fraud team at 1-877567-2062.

Township shelves financial support for book ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Andrew Casson loves the idea behind a local book, but doesn’t believe he and his fellow Spallumcheen councillors should use public money to contribute towards publication costs. A 3-3 vote resulted in the defeat of a motion that Spallumcheen council contribute $500 towards the publication costs of Real Food Real Health, a book about whole foods grown in the North OkanaganShuswap, written by local residents Kathryn Hettler and Dr. Maureen Clement. Casson, Mayor Will Hansma and Ralph Leyenhorst voted against the motion. Coun. Dave Brew excused himself from the deliberations and the vote because of a working relationship with one of the authors. “I’m 100 per cent behind the book, but I
don’t feel it’s our place to get involved with private business and enterprise,” said Casson. “I don’t feel we should use public funds to support the project.” Hansma backed Casson’s sentiment. “I can’t support this,” he said. “This is not what we’re here for, not to spend taxpayer money on a private venture for a couple of people. It’s outside our mandate.” Coun. Christine Fraser expressed several reasons why council should support the request. “Funds from the sale of the book will go to the Haugen (health care) Centre,” she said. “I realize it’s a private venture but it’s a project supporting our local farmers, supporting tourism and supporting our community.” Coun. Todd York said the very nature of the book draws the community closer.
“These folks have developed a book that’s how, where, when and why we should be supporting local farmers,” said York. The book is due out later this summer as a resource to inspire residents to return to some
of the basic principles around how a person eats in order to experience real health. On her website, www. pilgrimsproduce.com, Hettler, a local organic grower, describes the book as “a practical, usable guide to help you

Brian Jackson is honoured for his 60 years of involvement with Scouting by Margaret McGilvray (left) and Lisa Coley-Donohue.
Brian Jackson honoured by Scouts KEITH MCLEAN SR. Special to The Morning Star
Service is an integral part of the Scout promise and law; an indelible tradition etched into the fabric of scouting culture; an iconic image of the movement; a symbol of hope placed in its youth. Men and (in Canada) women from all walks of life have participated in the program, singing its praises as an inspirational and motivational factor in their lives. Behind the scenes work a nearly invisible family of volunteers who toil to ensure the success of Canadian youth. At the annual Honours and Awards banquet of the 6th Vernon Scout Group, held recently at Trinity United Church, some 83 volunteers were acknowledged for their efforts and assistance in enabling the success of the 2009-10 year. Performing yeoman service as taxi drivers, instructing workshops, providing professional service, raising funds, recruiting, enforcing policy, and providing materials or premises for programs — all gave service. Standing quietly among these and as a highlight of the ceremonies was the evening’s master of ceremonies, Brian Jackson, who has racked up an incredible 60 years of service to the scouting movement worldwide. Jackson was interviewed as he directed tables of scouts and their parents in an orderly fashion towards
SCOUT PROMISE: On my honour, I promise that I will do my best, to do my duty to God and the Queen To help other people at all time, and to carry out the spirit of the Scout Law. SCOUT LAW: A Scout is helpful and trustworthy, Kind and cheerful, Considerate and clean, Wise in the use of all resources. the buffet tables. Jackson’s earliest memories of Scouting come as a cub in Yorkshire, England. After an initial, invigorating, two years of Cubs, Scouting leadership in England was depleted as its leaders were “called up” to serve in the Second World War. “An old Scot (Scottish as opposed to Scoutish) stepped forward to run the entire program,” said Jackson. “I never forget his sacrifice and example.” During the war, cubs and scouts became the original environmentalists: recycling newspapers, string, tin cans, tin foil from cigarette packages and fund-raising for war bonds. Cubs and scouts were trained in dealing with incendiary bombs and spotting airplane bombers headed for Liverpool and Manchester — today we use specially trained military ops for this but in the Second World War you got a merit badge for it! More traditional scouting activities were also conducted. If Dan Brown wrote about Scouts he could use Jackson’s resume as a template: achieved
Scout first class 1948 — England; attended Jamboree de la Paix (Jamboree of Peace) 1947 — France; Scoutmaster 6th Holme Valley – England; immigrated to Calgary with his family, assisting with cubs and scouts — 1949; Bharat Scouts and Guides, 1953-58 — India; return to Calgary Scouts and guides — 1960-70; member of the National Advisory Committee on Scouting in the United Church — 1971-80; 6th Vernon Group Committee 1984-present; Chaplain 1987 — present. He has received medals of merit; medals of service, certificates of training and mastery, Red Cross, Food Safe, and thanks to our modern society, criminal record checks. His qualifications and training span 1938 — present! When asked for memorable scouting experiences the first that pops into his mind was finding a knife, gifted to him by scouts in England and then lost while camping in the Calgary area. The knife was recovered in true scouting fashion: by retracing his
steps on a trail. In a touching tale of the bond of Scouting Jackson recounts how a close friend willed his Gilwell beads to him. The coveted Gilwell beads are worn by Scouters who have completed Scouting’s Woodbadge Training and for his friend to pass them on in such a fashion was a great honour. Jackson’s related experiences include teaching vocational school in post-war India, pursuing his own vocation as a printer, entering the lay-ministry of the United Church, organizing and participating on a variety of committees, and promoting adult literacy. In response to the suggestion that this has been an incredible life of service, he comments, “Well, when you believe in a thing, you should do something about it.” Steve Kent, Chef Commissioner for Scouts Canada, wrote wishing Jackson “many more successful years of Scouting.” With the interview completed, our illustrious Scouter suggested that we should see if any food is left. There is — some. It’s cold of course. He hadn’t come for the food anyway. Badges, awards and certificates are presented; most stay to help with clean-up. Later, as I leave I notice a lone figure making one last sweep of the floor with a mop. Brian Jackson has started his next 60 years of service.

Training helps enhance communication skills Morning Star Staff
Give back to your community and enhance your communication skills, relationships and career at the same time. The PIN Crisis Intervention Society is now accepting applications and booking interviews for their summer Crisis Line Volunteer Training Session. This session is offered July 12 to 16 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Topics include human behaviours, isolation, mental illness, abuse and suicide among others. â€œYou will gain competence in crisis assessment, active listening techniques, and how to empower others to help themselves,â€? said Sharon Durant, with the society. â€œVolunteering provides you with practical crisis intervention and effective communication experience.â€? The Crisis Line offers callers short term emotional support and referrals for people in need;
of the carâ€™s other occupants seemed to be oblivious to the defects. The next problem arose when we were crossing Dartmoor and darkness started to set in. I switched the headlights on and found that one only worked when it felt like it, while the other pointed in a different direction every time we went over the slightest bump in the road. I could not deal with this so we pulled up at the roadside to see if we could fix the lights. The cause of the trouble was obvious. The headlights were mounted with clamps that went on to circularsection bars between the radiator grille and the fenders. The clips were loose. We managed to tighten them fairly well using an old screwdriver and some paper packing, but they could not be fully trusted not to move direction. I did not venture to look at the rear lights for fear of what I might find! We reached our destination late that night and I was given a spare bed that felt as if it was made of roughened concrete in a cramped attic where I finally got to sleep. There is little to say about the return trip two days later other than it was essentially the same as the first trip. I did learn two valuable lessons from that weekend. The first was to give any car that I was about to drive a thorough examination internally and externally before I moved it. The second was that life on a boring weekend in camp was less nerve-wracking, safer and more comfortable than a weekend trip away could be.
the service is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. If you would like more information or to book an interview, please call 250-545-8074.

HEREâ€™S HOW TO GET DINNER ON THE TABLE after you take... Jenny to soccer, Billy to baseball, Ashley to music lessons and yourself to yoga!!!
Even my two years of National Service in the mid-â€™50s had its lighter moments, although this was not one of them. However it started well enough. I was doing my trade training as a wireless operator at RAF Compton Bassett, Wiltshire, in Englandâ€™s southwest. One Thursday I was spending time sweeping up around the squadron offices along with my friend Willie Payton, another trainee. A sergeant came out and called Willie over to him. He asked Willie to go to find someone that he thought had a driving licence, which were not so common in Britain in those days. Willie was quick on the uptake and, probably to save himself a longish walk, told the sergeant that I had a driving licence. This started the chain of events. The sergeant, I canâ€™t remember his name, told me that he needed somebody that weekend to drive he and his family through Devon, down to Cornwall and return. He had just acquired a car but had only a learner driverâ€™s licence so he needed somebody with a full licence to accompany him. I said that I did not have permission to be off camp, travel warrant, food allowance, and similar necessary documents. The sergeant waved all this aside and said that he would fix it all. As a lowly Aircraftsman Second-class who was I to argue with a sergeant? So I was ready at 5 p.m. Friday ready to
go. I had no idea what kind of car it was but when I saw it I began to have some doubts about the idea. It was a Morris sedan of mid-â€™30s vintage and externally it appeared to have seen better days. However the sergeant was enthusiastic about what a great bargain he had got so I kept my doubts to myself. We all piled in with me at the driving wheel and set off. I found within the first mile of our approximately 150-mile journey there that the Morris had a major layout change from the cars that I had ever driven. This car instead of the usual arrangement of Accelerator, Brake, Clutch (ABC), had a BAC arrangement. This meant that the normal reaction in an emergency of stamping on the Brake would result in stamping on the Accelerator instead, producing exactly the opposite result to what the driver wanted. This was less of a disadvantage than it might have been because the brakes did not work very well anyway. We pulled into a garage to check the level of brake fluid and discovered it was very low with a leak in the system somewhere that necessitated fairly frequent top-ups. I was not engaged as a car mechanic so I went along with the temporary solution of carrying a spare tin of brake fluid. I also went along with the fact that the steering was somewhat imprecise and inconsistent, but careful and constant attention could deal with that. The rest

Rattlers brush back ‘Rocks Morning Star Staff
Paced by a three-goal performance by Trent Evans, the Kamloops Rattlers rolled into Lacrosseville Friday night and upset the first-place Armstrong Shamrocks 8-7 before 250 adoring fans at the Nor-Val Sports Centre. The Shamrocks (6-2) were coming off a three-game Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League win streak which ended abruptly as the Rattlers played with speed and intensity on defence and got a stellar 34-save showing from first star Mike Smith. In Thursday night action, the Kelowna Warriors ambushed the Vernon Tigers 15-2 at Wesbild Centre. The Rattlers (4-4) opened the scoring early when Evans found the fivehole on starting goalie Chad Pieper. The Shamrocks equalized when Brett Logan rolled out of the corner around a pick and fired a low bounce shot past Smith. Devin (Big Country) Rodger was assessed a match penalty for charging
when he clipped a Kamloops forward with a big hit which was deemed by the referee to be excessive. The Rattlers used the five-minute power play well when Mark Jurista potted his first of two on the night. The ‘Rocks managed to kill off the remainder of the penalty and Kamloops was then assessed a minor penalty of their own when Marc Wagner found Chad Pounder alone on the crease. Pounder quickly one timed his shot into the back of the net to tie the game at two heading into the first intermission. Jurista clicked again on the powerplay in the second period. Shortly after, the Rattlers took a two-goal lead when Jared Emery scored on a screen shot. Nathan Strohm answered back for the Shamrocks only to have the momentum stolen when Evans scored his second of the game as Wagner had lost his stick and was trying to defend, however, Evans lifted a shot up and over Pieper to restore a two-goal lead. Ryan Hildebrand slipped through
the Shamrocks power play unit and scored shorthanded goal to make the score 6-3. The Shamrocks then began to rally, scoring on a delayed penalty when Pounder netted his second of the night, and then Pat Nelson scored a beautiful one timer on the crease, on the power play. In the third, Wagner, playing the pivot position, picked up a rebound off a shot that went off the back boards and scored the highlight-reel goal of the night on a beautiful backhanded shot into the lower corner to tie it 6-6. Evans and Jared Emery responded for Kamloops. The Irish got a goal from Nathan Strohm with an extra attacker. “We seemed to be playing catch up all night long, whenever we would get some momentum, our defence would make a small mistake and the Rattlers would capitalize,” said ‘Rocks coach Ken McGregor. Former WLA sniper Rhys Parsons made his debut with Armstrong, who visit Vernon (1-7) Thursday night.
Some say he plays much like Sahir Gill. And while Mark Ferner hasn’t seen Marcus Basara play, he knows the Vernon Vipers are getting a top-six forward in Marcus Basara of Coquitlam. “We’ve heard different reports, but I had a long talk with him and his family, and he’s a very smart kid,” said Ferner. “We know he has good speed and is gifted offensively. He loves to scores goals.” Listed by the Western Hockey League’s Prince Albert Raiders after being bypassed in the Bantam Draft, the 5-foot-10, 162-pounder led the Notre Dame Hounds of the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League with 37 goal and 65 points in 43 games last season. The Hounds successfully defender their national championship Telus Cup, in April, in Quebec. Basara actually approached the Vipers so Ferner’s job to sell the Vipers’ program was made easier. “I think one of the reasons we got him (over Prince Albert) is he spent three years in Saskatchewan and he had had enough. We didn’t know if we had a chance at signing him. He should be a two-year player for us.” The Vipers lose the core of their two-time defending Royal Bank Cup roster and Ferner has a handful of other elite recruits to announce in the next two weeks. Vernon’s training camp opens Aug. 23 at Wesbild Centre. Meanwhile, Rylan Ferster is the new head coach/ GM of the Revelstoke Grizzlies. Ferster earlier this week left the Salmon Arm SilverBacks of the B.C. Hockey League as head coach/GM. He replaces Vernon’s Troy Mick, who recently joined the Pursuit of Excellence academy in Kelowna. “We are extremely excited as an ownership group to have Rylan join our hockey club,” said Mick, who helped the Kootenay International League champion Grizzlies with the hiring process. “This will help us continue our goals of developing hockey players to the next level and produce a team that all of Revelstoke can be proud of, and continue the winning tradition. Said Ferster: “I`m extremely excited to be part of the Revelstoke Grizzlies This will be a huge task of course with the team coming off a championship season. One that I and the rest of the staff will embrace and work hard to duplicate.” Mick said Ferster, who helped the Vernon Lakers win the 1990 Centennial Cup on home ice, “has seven years of junior A coaching experience and brings a ton of knowledge and leadership skills that we were looking for. He has coached at the junior A level his whole career and also has coached teams at the international level with Team Canada West.”

Sports SPORTS BRIEFS
Hydeâ€™s double powers Midget Jays
Greg Hydeâ€™s bases-loaded walk-off double in the bottom of the seventh inning gave the Vernon Kenneth P. Friesen Inc. Jays a 14-13 Midget baseball win over the Salmon Arm Bucks Thursday at Marshall Field. Salmon Arm seemed to be in control early on, building a 13-3 lead going into the bottom of the fourth but the Jays chipped away, starting the comeback with a two-run double off the bat of Kyle Banks in the fifth inning. Vernon left the bases loaded in the sixth but maintained focus and filled the sacks again in their last bats, pushing two runs home before Hyde stepped to the plate. The centre fielder delivered a huge blast that one hopped the left-field wall and cleared the bases, snapping the Jaysâ€™ three-game losing streak. Riley Mottus scored three runs for Vernon while Perry Klymchuk, Dustin Hastings, Carter Schindel and Banks crossed the plate twice each. Kelly Zoethout earned the win, throwing three innings of scoreless relief.

Vernon soccer teams settle for draws Vernon teams were fit to be tied in the Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League Thursday night. Ken James converted a first-half penalty kick as Kal Tire came from behind to draw 1-1 with Kelowna at MacDonald Park. Mark DeVolder was pulled down to warrant the kick. James later shot wide on a second-half penalty shot after DeVolder was fouled. Central defender Rich Zecchel was Man of the Match for Kal Tire, who improved to 6-2-1. JC Baretti scored for Kelowna. The Silver Stars got a goal from Rob Ross in a 1-1 tie with Lake Country at Beasley Park. Ross was called on a hand ball off a Lake Country corner and the hosts equalized. The Stars went to 5-3-1.
Jones runner-up in Alberta golf tourney Brad Jones of Vernon shot rounds of 76-76152 to finish second in the Canadian Junior Golf Association Collicutt Siding Open last weekend in Crossfield, Alta. Jones, who was 4-over-par, placed one stroke back of Calgary Steven Scheidt (72-79-151). Thirdplace Emmett Oh of Calgary carded 73-80-153. There was a field of 40. The tournament was part of the PUMA Challenge/Euro Junior Golf Cup/U.S. Tees/Lipton Brisk Qualifer.
Gagnon scores in Starsâ€™ 2-1 loss Alexandre Giroux extended an AHL record with his fifth career playoff overtime goal, scoring at 13:28 of the first extra session to give Hershey a 2-1 road win over Texas on Friday and a 3-2 series lead in the Calder Cup Finals. Giroux collected a bouncing puck in the right slot and sent a wrist shot through the five hole of Stars netminder Matt Climie for his 14th goal of the postseason (14-11-25), tied with Texasâ€™ Jamie Benn (14-12-26) for the AHL lead. Texas grabbed a 1-0 lead when Aaron Gagnon of Armstrong potted a power play goal at 8:03 of the opening period. Defenceman Dan Jancevski took a wrist shot from the point which was redirected in front by Gagnon and past Bears goaltender Michal Neuvirth for his eighth goal of the postseason.
Quotable... â€œSouth Africa against Mexico is hardly a marquee game. But the home team made a lot of fans in their opener, fans who couldnâ€™t have cared less two hours earlier what the outcome would be. It was proof yet again of the power of this sport. One canâ€™t help but share in the emotion that is generated when a nation comes together to follow a dream.â€? â€“ Morris Dalla Costa, QMI Agency.

World Cup fearless forecast...
ooking for something to watch in your spare time the next month. Your best bet will be checking out the FIFA World Cup in South Africa. The final goes July 11 on CBC. The beautiful game of soccer is on now on display with names like Lionel Messi, Wayne Rooney, Kaka, Cristiano Ronaldo, Didjer Drogba (broken arm and Kevin Mitchell all), Andres Iniesta and Arjen Robben just some of the superstars to watch on the world stage at Soccer City. Brazil and Spain are the top-ranked countries, but there are plenty of teams capable of knocking them off. Cameroon, at No. 8, and the Ivory Coast, at No. 15, are worthy underdogs. Enjoy and please read on for some predictions: Taylor Horsting: “NetherlandsSneijder, Robben, van Persie, Van Bommel..... if Robben is healthy the Oranje finally lift the title as the best nation to never lift the World Cup.” Andi King: “Brazil vs Spain in the final. Spain, with so many superstars and so much depth, is going to be unstoppable in 2010. I predict a close final, with Spain prevailing, becoming the first European team to win the World Cup on non European soil.” Bob Oldfield: “I think it could be Spain’s turn. They have a great chance and have been on a roll since Euro ‘08 with a successful squad that has been together for a couple of years now. They have a great self-belief and with goalscorers like Villa and Torres (if he can stay fit) along with a dynamic midfield of Fabregas, Silva, Xavi and Xabi Alonso they’re going to be hard to beat.” Stephanie Wilson: “I would have to go with Brazil. They’re always strong, have lots of talent, and they know how to win this tournament, having won it the most times. And, well, Brazil is one of my favorite teams so I always hope they win.” Al Bensmiller: “I predict Spain will come out on top against Brazil 3-2 in the final. Spain has the strongest squad and they are healthy, plus a few great players on the bench. Brazil have a lot to prove and have the team to get to the final. It will be Germany over France in the consolation final.”
BETWEEN THE LINES
Soccer stars Didjer Drogba of the Ivory Coast (left) and Cristiano Ronaldo of Portugal grace the cover of Vanity Fair. Wendy Lumby: “I‘m hoping Portugal can come through for the win! Brazil and Argentina are always so strong and can be counted on in the big games. However, It would be nice for the incredibly talented Cristiano Ronaldo to be able to showcase his skills in the final game of the World Cup for Portugal. While they do lack depth, they have youth and vigor on their side. It’s time for a different country to break through and come out on top.” Alistair Duncan: “It has to be Holland. They play well and have perennially under-performed. They have great strikers and solid midfield, and if Robben is fit, will be interesting to watch. And plus, they wear orange like us (Vernon Camels)! They don’t fall to the ground like mommy’s boys...aka the Italians, and other Mediterranean Nations!” Ron Krause: “Although my heart says Germany, (they have too many injuries) I am going to go with England over Argentina in the final (yes, my father has disowned me). I believe that England will get their revenge from Mexico ’86 and Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ goal (I was at the game). I also would not be surprised to see the Netherlands as the winner.” Jim McEwan: Spain – they are due to win the 2010 World Cup having been the European champion and they also won all 10 matches in their qualifying group. Plus they are the odds makers favourite.” Shelly Johnston: “I’m choosing Brazil to win. I know they are the fan fave but
yellow being my favourite color, they have my vote. Don’t rule out Spain. I hope host South Africa makes a good showing and there are some upsets. Although most of my soccer jerseys are Manchester United, basically it’s just so my English soccer friends talk to me!” Rob Hulstein: “I would like to see Holland win the World Cup because they play a very exciting style of soccer and they deserve to eventually be rewarded for it. Also, my family is from Holland and teams with orange jerseys, including the Vernon Camels, deserve to win.” Erv Schur: “I pick Germany as #1, with strong defence and good midfield play giving them the right opportunities to score up front. It will not be easy, needing a lot of hard work and some luck to go all the way. Deutchland uber Alles!! Spain #2, Portugal #3 and maybe England #4.” Dave Gould: “I predict either USA or Germany. The reason is that I am the world’s worst gambler and whoever I pick has absolutely no chance of winning a thing!” Jim Wilson: “I’m liking Spain, European champions, with one of the best strikers in the world in Torres, David Villa up front, great midfield with Iniesta, Alonso to mention a couple, Puyol and Ramos in the back along with Cassillas in goal, they’ll be tough to beat...” Suzy Andrews: “I predict Argentina and Italy in the final and Spain and England for third and fourth.” Akbal Mund: “Spain, lots of firepower in every position, Brazil and England (my favourite) a close second.” Dave Dutcher: “I usually go for Sweden, but they’re not in. Be nice to see an African winner for a change…at least they are offensive-minded.” Irene Arrotta: “My World Cup pick is Italy because if I didn’t, my dad would not be happy with me!” Erick Burnet: “Netherlands of course. Because of the very strong offensive quartet: Wesley Sneijder, Rafael van der Vaart, Robin van Persie (from Rotterdam!) and Arjan Robben. These guys showed in Euro Cup 2008 in the group stages what they can do (beat France and Italy both with three-goal difference) and they matured and are even stronger now.” Marty Stein: “The final four will be: Germany, Brazil, Argentina, Spain. Spain will defeat Brazil in final.”

Unity fighters uncover medals Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Unity Martial Arts shined at the West Coast Can-Am Games in Vancvouver, taking 17 medals, including a dozen gold. “We trained very hard for the tournament and wanted to show that our small team from Vernon was a force at the event,” said Unity instructor Raja Lee. “We were able to do so with our team winning 12 golds, four silver and one bronze.” Rylie Marchand, eight, earned two golds in San Shou (kickboxing with takedowns) and kickboxing. Taylor Robinson, eight, struck gold in San Shou and Pankration (amateur mixed martial arts). “The two girls Rylie and Taylor fought in the finals for gold in San Shou and did so good they gave them both golds which
has never happened before,” said. Lee. Levi Barnett, 12, managed a silver medal in San Shou and bronze in kickboxing. Cale Bouchard, 13, produced gold in San Shou, Pankration and grappling, leading the team with three golds. Theo Wagner, 17, collected silver in San Shou and gold in Pankration in the weight class above his. In his debut, Phil Baker won gold in San Shou at 150 pounds and Pankration at 152 pounds. Eric Sundquist swept both divisions he fought in, taking gold in San Shou 190 pounds and in Pankration at 200 pounds and under. Shelby Bouchard, 17, took silver in Pankration and Corey Brown earned silver at 160 pounds in San Shou although he was unable to compete in the finals
after sustaining an unfortunate knee in his semifinal match. “This tournament went really well for our team and other then a few injuries to overcome we did our very best and hope to continue to improve and show good results for Vernon and our club,” said Lee. Lee praised Braiden Edwards for helping the competitors to get in good condition for the tournament.

Speeders were sent a strong message in Lake Country Thursday. Between 8 a.m. and noon, speed reader boards were strategically located on municipal roads as well as four different spots on Highway 97. “At each location, approaching motorists could see their speed prominently displayed on the readers boards, along with the legally posted speed limit,” said Sgt. Rick McIsaac, with the Lake Country RCMP. Of the 1,872 vehicles that passed by the reader boards, only nine were stopped and issued tickets for speeding and two were given written warnings.

That long distance feeling still applies to parts of Spallumcheen. The township’s latest application to Telus to have free local calling for land lines for all of its residents was rebuffed by the phone company, based on a ruling by the Canadian Radio-television Telecommunications Commission (CRTC). Residents of Stepping Stones, who have Vernon exchanges, plus those with the 546 exchange, are charged long distance fees for calling Spall residents who have 838 exchanges, but it’s free for those with 838 to call the other numbers. Steve Jenkins, Telus’s general manager for the Interior South B.C. region, told council that competition and technology were behind the CRTC’s ruling that local calling areas have become less relevant for some of Telus’s customers. “...The commission considers the Internet, wireless and voice-over Internet protocol services have reduced or eliminated distance barriers, and have redefined the way customers communicate among themselves and within their communities,” explained Jenkins. “Telus is satisfied with the CRTC’s decision as our residential and business customers enjoy a much broader array of communications that include low-cost long distance plans, expanded mobile service at lower rates, e-mail and instant messaging to connect with areas outside of their existing local calling area.” While Telus may be satisfied with the CRTC’s ruling, Spallumcheen Mayor Will Hansma is not. “We should all just give up our land lines then and buy cell phones,” said Hansma. Spallumcheen has been making applications to Telus for free local calling for its residents since 2005.

Telus officials hope to stage a one-day town hall-style meeting in Armstrong to provide information to area residents on high-speed Internet. Telus Interior South B.C. general manager Steve Jenkins told Spallumcheen council the idea is to provide as many residents with new information on how to get high-speed Internet. “I think that’s a great idea,” said Spallumcheen Mayor Will Hansma. “It would enhance things for people and businesses in the City of Armstrong and the township.” The planned townhall style meeting is slated for Thursday, July 15, from noon to 8 p.m. at a venue yet to be determined. Jenkins, who will also pitch the idea to Armstrong council, said he has received a 380-signature petition from Grindrod residents, asking for highspeed Internet.

Community Sustainability at the garden at the Okanagan Science Centre.
Gardening spans generations CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
Fresh from the garden tastes so good that the students are asking for seconds of salad. The Intergenerational Landed Learning Program for Community Sustainability at the Okanagan Science Centre brings volunteer master gardeners and future gardeners together to learn about plants and local food production and eat what they grow. â€œI like eating the things best. I learned lots about what you have to do to grow good vegetables. We planted black-eyed peas today,â€? said Nicolas Allan, a nine-year-old Grade 4 student at St. James School which is taking part in the program. Bill Hickey is a volunteer who calls himself a compulsive gardener. â€œI enjoy anything to do with gardening and I like to show other people how to benefit from growing their own food. I hope that what the students are learning now will stick for life,â€? he said. The Intergenerational Landed Learning Project was started by Linda Peterat and Jolie Mayer-Smith, professors at the Faculty of Education at the University of British Columbia eight years ago to help teach children to care about their environment by growing their own food and share the knowledge of older adults. Peterat, now a Vernon resident, introduced the Landed Learning Project to the Okanagan Science Centre using the beds in the Xerindipity Garden. â€œMany of the children donâ€™t garden at home so this is an opportunity for them to learn about food sources and food systems and what it takes to nurture plants,â€? said Peterat.
Stephane Foster, 10, tucks into the salad with goat cheese. â€œThe volunteers contribute so much to the program and we always share a nutrition lesson and tasting at the end of each day. The children are also learning about

She would like to see the program used as a model for other schools which have their own gardens, and in community gardens. Parents appreciate the opportunity for their children to take part in the program. â€œSheâ€™s so excited, the visit to the garden becomes a highlight of her week,â€? said Stephanie Lockwood, whose daughter, Alexandra Lockwood, nine, is in the program. â€œShe is much more aware of what she is eating and where her food comes from. She brought home mixed salad greens last time and said, â€˜you have to try this Russian kale.â€™ She was proud to help prepare the salad for supper and brings home the recipes.â€? At a recent gardening session, the students picked vegetables and volunteer dietitian Jan Hillis prepared a salad of lettuce, roasted beets, toasted pumpkin seeds and goat cheese, as well as a kale, snow pea, garlic and red pepper stir fry. The Intergenerational Landed Learning Program for Community Sustainability was nominated for a City of Vernon Sustainability Award to recognize contributions to creating and strengthening a culture of sustainability in Vernon. Petrat and Mayer-Smith have recently released a book, Get Growing! Activities for Food and Garden Learning, which includes information on cross-curricular and fieldbased learning, activities, references and recipes for teachers, home schoolers, parents and community educators. The book is available at the Okanagan Science Centre.

Fundraiser honours a friend Father, husband, lawyer, volunteer: Philip Pool was an inspiration to all those who knew him Morning Star Staff
For many families, it will be a sad time: the first Father’s Day without their father. One family has decided to honour the memory of their father with a fundraiser for the Vernon Cancer Clinic. Philip Pool was father to 33 children, four with his wife, Debra, and 29 foster children over the past 15 years. Pool died at 52 of pancreatic cancer on March 15 of this year. “Philip loved kids and was an amazing father with all the patience in the world,” said Debra. The Father’s Day Fundraiser and silent auction takes place June 20 at Ricardo’s Mediterranean Kitchen in Winfield, with 25 per cent of the food sales of the day and 100 per cent of the silent auction proceeds going to the Vernon Cancer Clinic. “Philip Pool touched so many lives in
Philip Pool in one of his many roles: as a volunteer with the ski patrol at Silver Star. our community as was evidenced by the crowd of over 600 people who attend-
ed his funeral this spring,” said Ricardo Scebba, a family friend and co-owner of Ricardo’s with his wife, Sue Miller. “Philip was an inspiration to us all and we hope this fundraiser will be a way for the community to honour his memory.” Pool was a lawyer (Crown counsel), volunteer ski patrol member at Silver Star Mountain and supporter of BC Freestyle Kids. The president of the BC Freestyle Ski Association said Pool was active in the sport for more than 12 years. “Philip continually demonstrated integrity, fairness, humour and fun for all,” said Diane Vaykovich. “He and Debra have raised great children with good values.” Ricardo’s is well-known for the many fundraisers it holds throughout the year, but this one holds particular meaning for both Scebba and Miller. “I have really not met anyone who lived such a life of giving back as Philip. He was the kind of man who inspired so many people in this town,” said Miller. “I know that he inspired Ricardo and me all the time. We were proud to be called his friends and we miss him so much.” For more information, call Ricardo’s at 1-250-766-6810.

250-308-1965 “Helping you make sense of your options”
JJust Ask Teresa … Your Cosmetician
People are always asking what is a good sun care product? It must have at least a 15 SPF UVA and UVB protection. I would recommend getting a higher SPF for longer, better protection. Avéne compacts have a SPF 50 and come in two tints. When you use this product you do not need to wear a foundation. It gives your skin a slight tint and evens your skin tone. Your skin will have a lovely, fresh glow while being protected. If you would like some colour without the damage to your skin which you get from the sun, a self tanner is a great option. I like the color of the Avéne self tanner as it looks very natural. It is not too dark and works quickly with no strong smell. It can be used on your face, arms and legs … anywhere. If you want a darker colour, just re-apply the next day. It gradually wears away as your skin cells slough off naturally. The secret to getting a nice colour is taking the time to exfoliate ﬁrst and apply a moisturizer lightly ﬁrst. Be careful of your knees, elbows or dry area. Don’t forget a bronzer is a great way to get a little color and glow to the skin. They can be used all year round. Apply with a fat brush for a natural look Have a great summer! Happy Father’s Day - June 20 to all you Dads!

EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Hayride stirs up musical memories JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
The classic sounds of Louisiana are coming to town on a hayride. Lori and Gil Risling of Salmon Arm have put together a re-creation of the old live radio show, the Louisiana Hayride. The original production, also known as the Cradle of the Stars, ran successfully from 1948 to 1960, and featured the up and coming artists of the day such as Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash. “It’s a trip down memory lane,” said Andrea Anderson, a Vernon singer with the show. “It totally brought me back to my childhood.” This local production, called the Music of the Louisiana Hayride in Story and Song, will feature the classic music of Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, Marty Robbins, and Roy Orbison among others. Anderson will be playing the role of Patsy Cline. “I’m a walking, breathing, modern version of Patsy Cline,” she said. A true country singer, Anderson was born and raised on a cattle ranch in Alberta. She travelled around North America pursuing a singing career before finally settling in Vernon in 2002.
Patrick Ryley (left) as Hank Williams, Vernon’s Andrea Anderson as Patsy Cline, and Gil Risling as Roy Orbison will be performing with the Louisiana Hayride coming to town Friday and July 9. Anderson was given the opportunity to sing at the Canada Summer Games in Kamloops in 1993 before moving to Nashville in her early 20s.
“After that, I ended up in Phoenix and sang for a lot of sporting events like the Phoenix Coyotes and the Arizona Diamondbacks.” Since moving to Vernon, Anderson won
an Okanagan Idol contest in 2004, and then hit the stage at the Merrit Mountain Music Festival. “I’m excited to be playing in Vernon,” said Anderson, who hasn’t had the opportunity to sing in many local shows. “Gil and Lori heard me singing at a party,” she said. It was then, on the spot, that they asked her to be Patsy Cline in the Louisiana Hayride. “Singing Patsy Cline feels very natural to me,” said Anderson, who already had some of her music in her repertoire before joining the show. But the experience of the Louisiana Hayride goes beyond just listening to music. Lori Risling, the emcee for the evening, will be regaling the audience with stories and little known facts about all of the legendary artists. They have already sold out four shows in Salmon Arm, and decided to add an extra date in Vernon after selling out the first show with more than 85 people on the wait list. Anderson hopes that this momentum the show is gaining will continue. “Ideally I’ll be travelling with the show across Canada soon,” she said. The Louisiana Hayride will be at the Powerhouse Theatre Friday, and July 9. Tickets for the second show are available through Ticket Seller at 549-7469.
School celebrates 30th anniversary The Okanagan School of Ballet is celebrating three decades of passion for dance with a 30th anniversary recital Saturday at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre.

Performance says the right thing Morning Star Staff
Social commentary is coming to Vernon’s Gallery Vertigo. Say the Right Thing, which is written, directed and acted by Prodigy One, will be at the downtown gallery June 16 to 18 and June 23 to 25. Say the Right Thing is intended to deal with the divide between what we wish to say and what it is we are expected to say within the confines
of our societal parameters. “Our goal with this piece is to expose the shocking distinction between the nature of our true thoughts and our actual outward projections within different everyday life situations, and how this discrepancy shapes our relationships and identities,” states a release. The story takes on the format of “girl meets boy” and has a life like
journey that most of us can relate to on one or more levels. The difference here is there are actors playing the voices of the inner thoughts of the two main characters. “So, not only are we as an audience able to be there for the beginning of the story as a ‘fly on the wall’, we are able to be a part of and witness the characters’ inner thought processes,” states the release
Show time is 7 p.m. at Gallery Vertigo on 31st Street (across from Nolan’s Pharmasave).
Tickets are $12.50 per person. For information, call 503-2297.

ANAF hall hooks into Cod Gone Wild Morning Star Staff
Cod Gone Wild, a rambunctious Celtic rock, Maritime party band, will hit the stage at Vernonâ€™s Army, Navy and Airforce Club Friday and Saturday. Based in Vernon, the Cods have melded five veteran musicians
from diverse musical backgrounds to create an edgy version of traditional and non-traditional Celtic, Irish and Newfoundland music. â€œOur original arrangements, rich harmonies, driving rhythms and up-beat stage presence create a
powerful genre of music that is positively infectious â€” think Santanaâ€™ meets Great Big Sea,â€? said Chuck Nelson, with the band. â€œItâ€™s like your whole body is having a party, and suddenly without warning, youâ€™re hoppin,â€™ skippin,â€™ jumpinâ€™ and
flippinâ€™ like a cod gone wild.â€? Cod Gone Wild takes to the stage Friday and Saturday at 8 p.m. at the
Capsule Comments with
ANAF hall. On Saturday, there is a lobster buffet at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $30 per plate. Call 542-3277 or 545-8246.
CHRIS SHIDELER The banning of smoking in public and work places has resulted in a 36% drop in the incidences of heart attacks in communities where the ban was instituted. This is proof of the dangers of ďŹ rst, second and thirdhand smoke. Third-hand smoke is the residue from tobacco smoke that clings to walls, carpets and furniture. Itâ€™s always interesting to read Top Ten lists. As of October 2009, the top ten drugs prescribed in Canada were: Two cholesterol-reducing drugs, one thyroid supplement, one diabetes drug, four cardiac and blood pressure drugs, one antidepressant, and one sedative â€œtranquilizerâ€?-type drug. What topped the list? It was Atorvastatin (Lipitor), a cholesterol-lowering drug. This list does highlight societyâ€™s biggest medical problems: Heart, diabetes, cholesterol and depression. Bladder infections are more common in women than men. Here are some ways to prevent them. Drink more water. It helps ďŹ‚ush the urinary tract. Add cranberry juice to your daily diet. Empty the bladder often especially after intercourse. This can prevent bacteria from taking hold. For chronic cases, a daily low dose of antibiotic can also discourage bladder infections. During pregnancy, proper nutrition is of vital importance. If you are pregnant, be sure you are taking at lease 0.6 mg of folic acid and 27 mg of iron daily. There are speciďŹ c prenatal supplements that contain a balance of ingredients to ensure a healthy baby. Whether itâ€™s a prenatal vitamin or other speciďŹ c vitamin and mineral products, our pharmacists can advise you on the proper choice. Let us help you soon.

New surf shop hopes to make waves BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
Going with the flow is what Kevin O’Brien and Michelle Mitchell are all about. It’s a philosophy that’s allowed them to open a new business in Coldstream that could be the first of its kind in Canada. Kalavida Surf Shop, located right beside the Kal Lake Store, opened in early May. It offers anybody the chance to learn a sport – stand-up paddleboarding (SUP)– that’s just in its infancy, especially outside of the United States. “It’s great for people that have been out of the sport scene for a while,” says Mitchell, who explains the store name comes form Kala (Hawaiian for hang loose) and vida (life). “It’s out on the water, it’s relaxing, it’s social. I think it’s really appealing.” SUP involves a piece of equipment that looks like a surf board but is wider, thicker and longer for greater stability. As the name suggests, you stand up once on board and use a paddle to propel yourself forward. It can be done on a lake, river or the ocean. “The boards are super buoyant,” says Mitchell, adding the learning curve is short and most folks are successful early in their first lesson. “You can be up and paddling within five minutes and feel really comfortable.” Those that have tried it seem to agree. First-timers as young as five and as old as 75 have been out on the water recently. Some folks even take their dogs along for the ride. O’Brien, a Kamloops native, and Mitchell, from North Vancouver, have always been active types, with O’Brien being heavily involved in BMX racing and even providing colour commentary on the sport for CBC at the Beijing Olympics. Kalavida is their first business venture together but, as both are Pisces, moving to a water-based sport has proven a good fit.
O’Brien has been into surf culture for years now and wanted to bring the prototypical surf shop to B.C.’s Interior. With strains of Bob Marley and The Ventures emanating from behind the tiki hut-styled counter, he’s pulled it off. “We just wanted to recreate that feel like when you go to the beach, that funky surf shop,” he says. “No one is this close to the beach and it’s good for people that want to try it out because they don’t have to use the car to get to the beach.” With the help of some friends and plenty of elbow grease, the pair have made a storefront Frankie Avalon would be proud of with flip-flops, tee-shirts, hoodies, tiki wear, board wax and of course stand-up paddleboards are all for sale. They even created a storage loft that doubles as a play area for their son Bowen, 7. Renters can merely grab a board and walk a few short steps to find themselves on the sand. “The people of Coldstream have been really great,” said Mitchell. “ “People have said, ‘Finally, there’s something to do at the beach.’ We’re starting to get a regular community of people that come and hang out.” Wednesdays are for women at Kalavida with Wahine (Hawaiian for woman) Wednesdays where Mitchell takes ladies out for a casual paddle from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., which works well with most participants’ after-work schedule. O’Brien and Mitchell are also organizing the Kalamalka Classic June 19 and 20. It will be the first major SUP race in Canada and will attract competitors from Washington, Oregon, California and Vancouver. All proceeds from the event will go to the Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake (SPRKL).

Kevin O’Brien and Michelle Mitchell are ready to introduce the surf culture to the North Okanagan through their new Coldstream business.
Vernon housing activity increases during May Morning Star Staff
Housing construction remains steady in Vernon. There were 24 housing starts in May, a 14 per cent increase from the 21 starts during the same month in 2009. “Lower construction costs have allowed builders to target value conscious buyers, boosting demand for new homes,” said Paul Fabri, a market analyst with the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation.
“Favourable interest rates have also been a key factor contributing to increased demand,” Of the 24 starts, 20 were single-detached units and four were multiple units. Year-to-date, there have been 100 housing starts in Vernon, compared to 102 during the same five months in 2009. So far in 2010, there have been 87 single-detached units

and 13 multiple units constructed in Vernon. Kelowna’s housing starts were up 116 per cent in May, while Kamloops saw a 275 per cent hike and starts were down 11 per cent in Penticton. Nationally, housing starts moved lower in May to 189,100 units. In urban B.C., housing starts followed suit, edging down to 22,100 units.

Get ready to shift directions
might sound like a broken record when I say this, but it’s a true statement. “One of the best investments business owners can make is in the education of their employees.” Most would agree but I always wonder about the investment the business owner is making in themselves. They often get left behind in the education and training in their own business. The most common reasons business owners are the last to be trained is time and money — not enough of both so the investment they make first is in their employees in an effort to keep them on board. The type of education and training business owners are looking for often involves days away from their business because the training seminars are taking places in locations like Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton or even as far away as Toronto. The need to bring the training home to the Greater Vernon
region is critical if we want our business owners to stay up to date and on the leading edge of change. Community Futures North Okanagan understands this need and is doing just that, bringing the training to Greater Vernon in September of this year. The Shifting Directions Val Trevis conference is scheduled for Sept. 27 to 28 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge and it will focus on “Preparing for the Next Workplace.” Over the last 18 months, we have witnessed a dramatic shift in our provincial, national and global labour markets. This shift has left many employers uncertain of future staffing, skill development and training requirements for their existing workers to successfully compete going forward. Employment counsellors also need relevant information for the many clients seeking training that will match the new job opportunities of the
future. Community Futures has lined up some excellent speakers with timely topics. Sean Aiken will kick-start the event Sept. 27 at the wine and cheese reception as he shares the knowledge he has gained about youth employment and how businesses and organizations can help prevent a “lost generation.” The following day will feature speakers such as: Economist Linda Nazareth, who will offer an understanding of what the “next economy’ will look like by discussing key trends and economic shifts that will not only shape business but also society and life in the future. Dr. Tom Keenan will provide a very clear message that essential skill development is an economic imperative, an employment imperative and a social responsibility if Canada is to remain competitive and prosper in the future that is unfolding. A panel of experts will discuss training budgets and how to do more with less.
Two Vernon chartered accountant students have been recognized by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of B.C. Christiane Maygard, with KPMG, and Dustin Stadnyk, with Sladen Moore, graduated from the CA School of Business program. They are now eligible for ICABC membership. “These students have earned their CA designation by successfully completing an unparalleled and rigorous academic program, focused on business and accounting competencies,” said Richard Rees, chief executive officer. To qualify as a CA, students must have a university degree or
equivalent, 30 months of practical work experience in a chartered accountancy firm, and complete courses through the CA qualification program.
future will engage and maintain their employee base and what steps can be taken now to respond to the changing nature of work. The caliber of speakers and knowledge that this conference will bring to the Greater Vernon business community and beyond is of enormous value and benefit.

Riding the rails of luxury LAUREN KRAMER Special To The Morning Star
ALBERTA - Calgary is sleeping soundly in the pitch black of an early fall morning when the Rocky Mountaineer train pulls out of Union Station. It’s 6:15 a.m. and most passengers are bleary eyed but for the jumpstart of coffee, lulled into inertia by the fast movement of the train as we zip through the darkness en route to Banff. When the morning light creeps in there are towering mountains on either side of us, the sun breaking gently over their sheer, rocky slopes. Around us there’s a hum of chatter with accents hailing from Germany, England and Australia. Many of these travelers have come vast distances, lured by the prospect of seeing the day break over the snowcapped Rocky Mountains. It’s the mountains that steal the show, their silhouettes highlighted by the blue sky of a perfectly clear morning. Some have smooth, snow-topped foreheads, while others, like Castle and Cathedral Mountains, have jagged spears and ridges protruding from them, evidence of meticulous sculpting by glaciers millions of years ago. And what a place to experience them. Rocky Mountaineer Railtours offers a Banff-to-Vancouver circuit, one of its most highly sought-after trips. As I curl up and gaze out of my window from the Gold Leaf dome carriage, it’s easy to understand why. Gold leaf means raspberry scones and quiches to take the edge off any hunger before the formal breakfast, and champagne and orange juice to toast the voyage. It means white table clothes and exquisitely presented gourmet meals cooked in

Crossing the divide
~ September 21 - October 1 ~
Continued from previous page Here, we reach the continental divide, the point of highest altitude in our journey and the rooftop of the provinces of Alberta and British Columbia. The divide marks the place of separation where snowmelt flows into the Atlantic Ocean on the one side and the Pacific on the other. But on this day, the waterfalls are frozen into stillness and the initial dusting of powder gives way to large expanses of snow that cake the mountain’s layers of dolomite and limestone rock. Most people know them as the Rockies, but in fact the Rockies are only one of a number of mountain ranges we will traverse. On the first day, we move steadily through the Ottertail, Van Horne and Beaverfoot ranges, with brief glimpses at the Kicking Horse River as it tumbles over the sloping rocks. Apart from glaciers and mountains, it’s wildlife we’re watching for. Elk, moose, grizzly and black bear, bighorn sheep, mountain goats, wolves, coyotes and even cougars and lynx might cross the train’s path and bears are a frequent sighting. On this journey, we pass two of them, both a dark flash in the window before they disappear. The next day, the scenery changes dramatically. Gone are the snowcapped mountains and layers of forest, and in their place we travel through desert country alongside the Thompson River canyon. The salmon are in their dying throes in October, and sightings of bear and bald eagles become more frequent along the riverbank as they feast on the wasting bodies of the salmon. Within a few hours, the scenery changes again and the barren desert yields to the maples and Douglas fir forests of the Fraser River canyon. We’re in a temperate rainforest, the trees turning that magical

appreciation of living in so beautiful a region of the world. Stone bridges sail by, crucifixes adorn longunused cemeteries and magnificent expanses of land stretch forever, a reminder of how small and insignificant our cities really are. These are moun-

Ikcc[hia_bbiehikcc[hiY^eeb5 Your son comes home with a less than stellar report card. It’s no surprise to you because you’ve been on his case all year. He’s failed English and Social Studies, but he’s got an “A” in PE! Well, now your summer vacation plans have to be changed and he’s off to summer school. But is summer school really the best long-term solution for your child’s poor marks? “For many students, summer school can be a complete waste of time,” says Kathleen Casprowitz of Sylvan Learning. “The problem is that summer school is a repeat of the curriculum and often does not correct the real causes of poor school performance,” according to Casprowitz. Parents need to become educational detectives; they need to fully understand all the reasons their child has passed or failed a course. After 23 years in the business, Casprowitz maintains there is absolutely no reason for a student to fail English. “If a student has these three skills, they should be successful,” she asserts: • Reading Skills: A student needs to be able to “get the information in”. In other words, he or she needs to have good comprehension and vocabulary and the appropriate reading speed for the current grade.
Many students need individualized instruction to hone in on their particular weaknesses.
• Writing Skills: A student needs to be able to communicate well on paper. Your child is marked on what he or she produces, such as term papers, essays and lab reports. If these are poorly written, marks go down. • Study Skills: If things such as note-taking, outlining, listening skills, study strategies and time-management skills are weak, homework often isn’t done or it’s done poorly and the report card will reflect this. “If your child failed because of weaknesses in one or more of the above skill areas, repeating the course has the obvious benefit of picking up a credit, but the underlying problem won’t go away. That means next summer, too, can be spent in the classroom!” A multifaceted approach may be a better strategy. Addressing reading, writing, or study-skills issues may better serve your child in the long run in addition to — or in lieu of — summer school. However, for most students needing extra help, more group instruction is often not the answer. Many students need individualized instruction to hone in on their particular weaknesses, not just more time in the classroom. So how do you find out your child’s skill levels? The Sylvan Skills Assessment is one of the best ways to broaden your knowledge of your child’s skill levels and help you determine what is the best help for your son or daughter. Sylvan’s assessments are based on nationally recognized tests and are extremely thorough, covering all
the components that go into the particular skill area. Each Sylvan assessment, whether in reading, writing, math, or study skills takes approximately two hours each. A full written report is then prepared for the parents and the details are explained in a follow-up parent conference. If your child’s foundation skills are strong, then summer school is the right place for him or her. But if any of the three skill areas are weak, you may need to enroll your child in Sylvan this summer for better grades next fall. Sylvan Summer School Benefits • Sylvan starts with a diagnostic assessment to pinpoint your child’s strengths and weaknesses. • A customized program is designed just for your child, allowing us to focus on his/her problem areas. • Sylvan starts with a student’s current capabilities and from there builds the foundational skills needed to cope with the curriculum rather than only exposing them (again) to the same curriculum they couldn’t master in the first place. • Our program provides for in-depth learning and mastery of material before a student moves on. The group does not set the pace. • The schedule is flexible because it is designed around the student, not tied to a set calendar. Thus, family vacations need not be interrupted.
Sylvan this summer... better grades next fall.

News Access denied for abortion data A bid by B.C. antiabortionists to have the number of abortions conducted at Kelowna General Hospital and Vancouver General Hospital each year made public has failed. B.C.â€™s Information and Privacy Office has told Campaign For Life Coalition British Columbia, it will not hold an inquiry into the matter. The ruling effectively kills the coalitionâ€™s attempt to force pubic release of the numbers, which are protected by law under the provinceâ€™s Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. â€œThe office never even wanted to look into it,â€? said coalition spokesman Ted Gerk.
â€œThe office never even wanted to look into it.â€? â€” Ted Gerk Gerk was critical of the two hospitals for arguing earlier this month, just as an inquiry was scheduled to proceed, that the number should be kept under wraps as a matter of public safety. The hospitals argued successfully that an inquiry should not be held. Gerk said that only gave his group four days to respond. But he said his group will not give up on its quest and will try to â€œeducateâ€? MLAs about the need to be open with the numbers. He said he hopes the next time the Freedom
of Information and Protection of Privacy legislation is changed, the number of abortions conducted at the 34 hospitals in B.C. where it is offered will be excluded from protection. While the exact number at KGH remains secret, earlier this year a top-level administrator with Interior Health has said about 700 abortions are conducted at the hospital each year. Mary Jane Cullen, community administrator for the Central Okanagan told the now-defunct Kelowna. com Internet news site

Vernonâ€™s Jubilee Hospital, Kimberley and District Hospital, Kootenay Lake DIstrict Hospital, Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops, Trail Regional Hospital, and Golden and District General Hospital are all listed by the government as facilities mandated to provide the service.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You have a natural gift for being able to quickly remedy sticky situations that arise out of nowhere. Companions will be most appreciative of this asset you possess. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Pay close attention to those natural-born insights you often get, especially those that are persistent. Your intuitive faculties are trying to tell you something that your logic is failing to perceive. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Strive to maintain high standards within your full range of involvements, even with the little things that no one tends to notice. Applying good principles will put you in the winner’s circle. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Without even trying, you’ll have an aura of authority that will automatically make others follow your lead. Don’t be surprised that when you look back, a crowd will be following you. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Being nonjudgmental is what will make your involvements with others so successful. Neither their shortcomings or mistakes will disturb you, nor will you be awed by their great attributes. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Changes brought about by outside factors won’t necessarily be disturbing to you or appear to be too exciting. However, by day’s end you’re likely to feel like you’ve had quite a time. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Diplomacy and tact are two of the greatest tools
you can use to ward off or minimize any complications that might otherwise develop. Use them freely. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Simply by settling down to business when called for, and not letting frivolous involvements sidetrack you from what needs doing, you will have a very productive day.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) The quality of your companionship will be of far greater significance to you than being surrounded by a quantity of friends.

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

Bridge by Phillip Alder Aristotle Onassis, who died in 1975, said, “Don’t sleep too much. If you sleep three hours less each night for a year, you will have an extra month and a half to succeed in.” I am not sure that the medical profession would agree with sleeping less, but at the bridge table, try to ﬁnd extra chances to succeed in your contracts. And if you ﬁnd a “swindle” that works, you will give your opponent some sleepless nights. How would you plan in four spades here? West cashes three top hearts, then shifts to a club to your ace. North’s hand is like a jigsaw piece that does not ﬁt. It has 12 points and four-card support for at
least a ﬁve-card suit, which suggest forcing to game. But it has nine losers (three spades, three hearts, one diamond and two clubs), which suggests making a single raise! In this type of situation, plow a middle furrow, responding three spades, a game-invitational limit raise. You raise to game in your sleep. If trumps are 2-1, there are no problems. If, though, they are 3-0, do you have any chance? You are dead if West has all three spades. But if East has them, you can give him a chance to go wrong by playing a diamond to the board and calling for the spade jack. If East plays low smoothly, win in your hand, assuming a 2-1 split. However, if East
covers and West shows out, you will have engineered a nice coup. If declarer leads an unsupported honor from the dummy, you have that card surrounded, and you hold at least one more low card, it is (almost always) wrong to cover.
