Church proceeds with plans after fire ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Pastor Scott Hemenway is keeping the faith. So, too, is the congregation of 140 of the Enderby Evangelical Chapel, after the chapel’s future home, an existing office building in the 100 block of Meadow Crescent, was seriously damaged by a Monday fire. “It’s certainly not what our plans were,” said Hemenway, who has been the pastor at the chapel for the past 10 years. The chapel itself has been at its current location on Mill Avenue since 1972. “We began making our plans to move over there, then this happened. It’s put a wrinkle in our plans.” Members of the Enderby Fire Department were called to the fully involved fire shortly after 4 a.m. “The fire was burning through the roof, but the building was not totally destroyed,” said fire chief Gerard Doorn. “The fire stayed in the upper roof. It was challenging because it was in the attic, in a tight space.” The chapel was renovating the old office

building as a Christian education space. When renos were to be complete, the congregation would meet in the bottom floor for worship services. As time went on, the chapel would look at building another sanctuary. “We’ve had two buildings,” said Hemenway. “That piece of property (Meadow Crescent) is bigger, it would enable us to have more room to grow.” Once people get over the initial shock of the fire, the project will carry on. “From the very beginning of the project, and it’s a big project but we’re a small church, the project has always been bigger than us,” said Hemenway. “We’ve always been trusting in the Lord that he would provide and guide and lead. We started this in faith believing God would lead us.” Hemenway said he wasn’t sure if the building was a write-off, or whether it would be cleaned up and rebuilt. Doorn said, as of Monday, no cause of the fire had been determined, and that the blaze remains under investigation.

City hall records higher payroll costs in 2009 RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A Vernon politician fears taxpayers could go broke paying staff at city hall. The city’s new annual report indicates that $18.8 million was paid out in earnings, expenses and allowances to employees in 2009. Of that, there were 63 that took home more than $75,000 in earnings. “There’s a liability to sustaining staff salaries in the future,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. “The only way to sustain it is by increasing taxes and any time you increase taxes, that’s not a good thing.” The gross number of employees in 2009 was 299, compared to 267 in 2008 and 241 in 2007. The net

“I hope people will get a copy of the report.” — Bob Spiers cost of salaries, wages and benefits was $15.6 million in 2008. There were 41 employees who earned more than $75,000 a year in 2008. Spiers had sought a core review of all city services partly because of increasing staff costs, but a majority of council didn’t agree to that move. As a result, Spiers suggests the next step could be pressure from residents to examine city expenses.

“I hope people will get a copy of the report, look at it and express their feelings,” he said, adding there will be a public input meeting June 28 at 5 p.m. at city hall. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe points out that staffing levels grew last year partly because the city took on tourism and economic development. But she admits to having a concern about the upward movement in pay. “Council has to be conscious of

what the average wage in Vernon is,” she said. The highest paid employee was chief administrative officer Leon Gous at $157,402 — $145,202 in gross earnings, $7,629 in expenses and $4,571 in allowances. Next was fire chief Jeff Carlisle at $123,688 — $110,603 in wages, $9,085 in expenses and $4,000 in allowances. Rounding out the top five were deputy chief administrative officer Marg Bailey at $118,477 in earnings, expenses and allowances; engineering general manager Rob Dickinson at $113,614; and planning and building general manager Kim Flick at $113,614. Twenty-four members of the fire department earned more than $75,000, and officials say much of

that is attributed to over-time. Coun. Jack Gilroy believes the number of employees and their compensation is necessary to keep the city running. “I look at it and go, ‘Wow,’ but it’s the cost of doing business,” he said. “If we want the proper people in proper positions, we have to pay a certain level or you’ll lose them.” Mayor Wayne Lippert insists the city isn’t top-heavy with staff and council is being responsible with tax dollars. “There’s always a concern (about increases) but the city looks at services and the staff needed to provide those services,” he said. “To put services out there that people ask for or require needs staff.”

News Road project facing delay RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

SEAN CONNOR/BLACK PRESS

A southbound semi from Alberta ended up in Wood Lake Thursday after being hit head-on by a northbound Pontiac. The driver of the Pontiac, from Lake Country, was killed, while the Alberta driver of the rig was taken to Kelowna hospital with minor injuries.

Fatal crash closes highway A Lake Country man was killed after his Pontiac sedan collided head-on with a semitrailer unit on the twolane stretch of Highway 97 between Oyama and Oceola/ Woodsdale Roads in Lake

Country Tuesday afternoon. The highway was closed for a number of hours as the accident was investigated. Police confirm that the driver of the northbound Pontiac crossed the centre line and struck the south-

bound semi. As a result of the crash, the truck ended up partially submerged in Wood Lake. The driver was taken to Kelowna General Hospital in ambulance with minor injuries.

Both the driver and the truck are from Alberta. Speed does not appear to be a factor. The name of the victim had not been released prior to The Morning Star’s press time.

Motorists will have to endure congestion a little longer as improvements at one of Vernon’s busiest intersections have been stalled. The Ministry of Transportation was expected to begin construction of additional left-turn lanes at 32nd Street and 25th Avenue this month, but the work will now not get underway until early next spring. “I’m very disappointed they couldn’t get it together to get it done,� said Coun. Jack Gilroy. “I can’t believe they are going to stall it for eight months.� The $5 million project will see two left-turn lanes constructed on the west side of 25th Avenue and two left-turn lanes on the east side of 25th Avenue. According to the ministry, the planning process began a year ago and the delays are related to property acquisitions and design challenges involving under-ground utilities and commercial property. Design work should be completed in September. “We would then get into the fall and have to decide if we want to open the road up then,� said Reid Drummond, regional project manager. “We wouldn’t want to get in there and realize there’s cold temperatures and early winter.� Drummond believes that a spring 2010 start for the twomonth project will benefit motorists. “There will be a lot lower traffic volumes then. We won’t be dealing with tourism traffic,� he said. About 24,000 vehicles a day use the intersection. “It’s such a bottleneck for people coming through Vernon,� said Gilroy, referring to 32nd Street being part of Highway 97 and 25th Avenue linking to Highway 6. “We will have to go through another summer before it gets done.� The budget for the project has come from the provincial and federal governments, as well as the city. Drummond insists the delay doesn’t threaten the finances. “The funding is not limited to any drop-dead spent date,� he said.

Polson Park focus of mobility concerns RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Residents with mobility issues fear Polson Park redevelopment could leave them on the sidelines. Independent Living — which represents the disabled — has expressed concerns over changes to the park, and particularly closing the internal road which provides access Jack Gilroy to the ponds, gardens and waterpark. “We’re looking to be an active part of the community. There should be free access to all citizens and we can’t forget that,” said spokesman Norm Peters. “The average person who pays for the park will have difficulty getting in.” The city and the North Okanagan

Regional District are currently looking at possible redevelopment of the park, and one of the options includes shutting the road down to public traffic so the paved surface can be used by people walking and running. Peters is concerned that even gates across the road will create problems for the disabled. “If we close the road in the park, how will we get scooters in?” he said. Coun. Patrick Nicol believes any designs should take Independent Living’s concerns into account. “They should be seriously listened to. With the population going the way it is (aging), we will probably have more people like that,” he said. Coun. Jack Gilroy points out that even if it is closed to general traffic, the internal road will still be used by emergency vehicles and there should be ways of accommodating the disabled. “If we leave the road open for people with wheelchair stickers on their vehicles, we will look at it,” he said.

Biosolids upgrades pushed back RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Fertilizer plant upgrades are delayed, but there is confidence that foul odours will be extinguished. It was expected the work on the Commonage Road biosolids facility would be done by June 30, but it could now be July 15. The goal is to increase Patrick Nicol the plant’s capacity and reduce odours. “I’m more optimistic than I was earlier in the year,” said Coun. Bob Spiers. The facility takes waste from sewer plants in Kelowna, Vernon and Lake Country and turns it into Ogogrow fertilizer.

As a result of the facility not being able to handle all of the biosolids, some material has been diverted to the landfill until the upgrades can be completed. Once construction, which began in December 2009, is done, it will take some time to bring the plant fully on stream, and then the diverted biosolids will be phased back in starting in September. Part of the improvements includes $124,000 in technology that can track odour levels. Coun. Patrick Nicol says the computerized system will provide better control of the plant if odours are noticed. “It allows staff to shut it down from home if necessary,” he said. The upgrades cost $7 million, with Vernon contributing $1.9 million and the remainder coming from Kelowna.

Workers help unload cases of Molson Canadian from a semi that overturned on Meadowlark Road Sunday night around 11 p.m. Vernon RCMP report the driver was trying to turn the rig around when the rear end wound up in the ditch and the truck flipped over on its side. The driver was uninjured. The goods were loaded onto another semi.

Campaign for electric vehicles sparks local debate The City of Vernon is reviewing whether it needs to authorize lowspeed electric vehicles on roads, but the mayor doesn’t believe so. Wayne Lippert points out that there are already such vehicles being used and they are insured through ICBC. “When the ability is already there, why does the city need a bylaw in place?” he said. The city has been asked by low-speed car advocates to endorse the vehicles. “We need better options for transportation. Our current options are killing us,” said Gerry Marcelos, who drives a low-speed vehicle, in a presentation to council. Marcelos says such

vehicles utilize a domestic energy source and they are environmentally friendly. “There are no emissions so everyone gets clean air,” he said. Lippert’s primary concern is with liability. “There is a process

we need to go through to make sure people are safe,” he said. Marcelos isn’t aware of any accidents with low-speed vehicles. “It has a perfectly clean rap-sheet,” he said. Vernon resident

LOOK WHAT’S NEW AT

Geoff Elliott operates an electric car and he wants the city to take a stand and become a leader. “It’s not like we’ll get a flood of them. We’re just wanting to provide the option to people,” he said.

Boil alert may be lifted RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Some Greater Vernon residents are waiting to hear if they can drink out of the tap again. The North Okanagan Regional District initiated a boil water advisory for 15,000 customers on the Duteau Creek source Saturday, and a decision on lifting the alert could come some time on Renee Clark Thursday. “We will move out of it if all goes well,” said Renee Clark, senior water quality technologist. The advisory was launched after recent rain increased levels in Duteau Creek and turbidity (or

cloudiness) spiked. On Saturday, quality was rated as poor. “We have to go through the distribution system and make sure nothing is impacted,” said Clark. “We are checking the bacterial levels and the turbidity levels.” Until the alert is lifted, all customers on the Duteau Creek source are urged to boil water for one minute for drinking, washing produce, making beverages or ice and brushing teeth. Customers can also choose to use bottled water or water that has been filtered through a wellmaintained treatment device. While the rain has created water quality concerns, it has helped alleviate another issue facing Greater Vernon — a lack of water. “Our lake reservoirs are almost at capacity at this time,” said Clark.

Impaired driving incidents spike in Vernon It’s not officially summer, but the RCMP’s busiest time for dealing with impaired drivers has already begun. Over the past week, Vernon RCMP arrested 10 people for impaired driving, and issued another six 24-hour suspensions. “Summer is the peak time for impaired drivers,” said spokesman Gord Molendyk. “Everyone thinks it’s Christmas time, and New Year’s, maybe that’s because of the CounterAttack program and awareness. But the summer months

are busy months.” Molendyk said people are now out playing softball and golf, going to the beach or camping, and the problem is that alcohol is usually involved with the activities. “Our officers are well aware that people are out in the great outdoors and they’re drinking,” he said. “People can’t forget that it is an offence to drive under the influence of alcohol.” RCMP will be making regular patrols this summer, both on the roads and on the water, targeting impaired drivers.

t’s quite possible Blair Lekstrom jumped from the sinking SS Liberal Party to escape the iceberg known as electoral defeat. But there is also a chance he’s being forthright when he explains why he abandoned the government and his cabinet post over the harmonized sales tax. “I believe that my first priority as an elected official is to the people that elect me and then to the political party I represent,” he said in a written statement. “It is clear to me that the residents of Peace River South are opposed to the HST and are unhappy with the way in which our government moved forward with this policy.” If Lekstrom is being Richard Rolke completely up front, then he did the right thing — putting his own personal views and interests behind those who sent him him to Victoria. So my question then is, why aren’t other members of the Liberal caucus following his lead? Why do they continue to ignore the groundswell of opposition to the HST? “I still believe it’s good public policy and the public will understand that once it’s in place,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA. It’s dangerous for politicians to think they know better than the people they represent. And while Foster has often said the public is being misled by the anti-HST forces, underestimating the intelligence of voters and their ability to make a decision comes across as arrogant. When asked about Lekstrom’s resignation, Shuswap MLA George Abbott expressed surprise and disappointment. “Blair had spoken in support of the HST

as good government policy in the Legislature,” said Abbott. If Abbott has read Lekstrom’s resignation statement, he’d realize that the former energy minister continues to say, “I firmly believe that government is making a decision they believe will help the province.” So he personally remains true to his own convictions. What has changed is a vast majority of people from his constituency have signed the anti-HST petition. And it wouldn’t hurt Foster to look at the numbers in his own backyard. While he received 9,015 votes in the 2009 election, a whopping 12,071 people have inked the petition. That’s 26 per cent of all voters in Vernon-Monashee. Things also don’t look good for Abbott. As of Thursday, 12,401 people had officially registered their opposition to the HST in Shuswap. That compares to the 10,764 votes Abbott got in the election. Voters frequently have short memories and there’s no guarantee that today’s furor will translate into defeat in the next election. But the Fight HST crowd has organized volunteers across the province who are now comfortable canvassing and arm-twisting. They can also taste victory every time another name goes on the petition. What this means during the 2013 general election, or a recall campaign, is anyone’s guess. But even if Foster, Abbott and the rest of the Liberal caucus aren’t interested in whether they keep their jobs, it must be hard to look at the petition numbers and not second-guess their actions as MLA or if they still have the confidence of voters. Shortly after being elected last year, Foster said, “I represent Vernon-Monashee and everyone who lives in it.” I wonder if he still truly believes that.

The numbers at Vernon city hall are staggering. A total of $18.8 million was paid out to 299 employees in 2009, up from $15.6 million for 267 in 2008. Of that, 63 individuals earned more than $75,000 last year, far outstripping the 41 in 2008. Now there will be some reasons for the new bodies, including taking over the economic development and tourism functions from the regional district and moving into areas like transportation demand management. Twenty-four members of the fire department took in more than $75,000 but much of that is directly related to over-time costs. Certainly the case can also be made that it takes a certain number of people to provide services that residents require or demand. And given competition from other municipalities and the private sector, wages must be competitive. But the growth in both jobs and salaries at city hall seems drastically out of touch with the reality facing taxpayers. Many residents have lost their jobs during the recession, or their cheques have been frozen. Many seniors took a financial hit with the stock market turmoil. Demand is up at almost every social agency in town, including the Upper Room Mission and the homeless shelter. Many of the people walking through the door at the food bank have never been there before and some of them are children. Obviously city employees should be compensated fairly, and the salaries they earn go right back into the local economy. Civic workers are known for generously supporting those charities who help the less fortunate. But at a time when many people are struggling financially and the overall tax burden keeps climbing, the perception coming out of Vernon city hall is not a good one.

Democracy is for all

I

n response to Wayne Bonsan's recent letter for his definition of "democracy." Mr. Bonsan suggests that Brian Bonney (Canadian Independent Federation of Business) does not get his facts straight when requesting the right of business to have a vote in their constituency. I would suggest that he review the following before suggesting that having fought in our various war efforts should preclude a business from having a right to vote on issues involving their own and their staff's very economic survival as well. I do not wish to offend Mr. Bonsan and he may have researched part of the definition of democracy before writing but his research was somewhat narrow in scope. So that he can appreciate it, Wikipedia (in part) has documented history and says that: "Even though there is no specific, universally accepted definition of democracy, there are two principles that any definition of democracy includes: equality and freedom." And further: "An essential process in representative democracies is competitive elections that are fair both substantively and procedurally." Currently, I own my own building and conduct business within this building. My 2009 commercial rate for tax purposes was $25.56 per $1,000 of assessed value including garbage and

recycling plus an additional commercial rate for water and sewer of $550 per quarter, resulting in a total of $31.53 per thousand...my residential rate was $6.51 plus a reasonable residential quarterly water assessment. I would ask Mr. Bonsan where the equity and democratic principle is in this typical Vernon business scenario. What our business has for this inequity is: ■ The ability for an unemployed 19 year old who has lived in Vernon for six months to vote on matters of residential and commercial matters that affect my operations; ■ An expectation from some of the public that business is responsible for sponsoring and funding all their needs; ■ Our collective business accepted moral and community obligation to do so, regardless of fairness and costs incurred by business; ■ Staff parking and security issues;

PLEASE HELP I wish to acknowledge the health professionals, support staff and volunteers of Polson Multi-Level Extended Care Unit. My step-father, John Sherwood, was a resident with them for a year prior to his death in April. Each member of the team who cared for him and all the other residents on that unit were always cheerful, compassionate and professional. So often their work goes unnoticed and without the due thanks that they deserve. With limited dollars available from traditional sources of funding, the staff endeavour to provide fun activities for the residents by organizing crafts, outings, pot luck meals and visiting entertainers. They actively pursue donations of artwork in order to make the unit appear more like home Some residents require special mattresses, cush-

■ Employment of 23 wives, husbands, daughters, granddaughters etc., in their efforts to support their families, school and personal pursuits and the money they spend in the community; ■ Our sponsorship of over 29 various events and charitable causes last year alone, many of whom have had some or all of their funding cut back by the same various bureaucracies that continue to spend money as if they are printing it in the bowels of city hall. What our business does not have for this inequity: ■ Children attending school, playing on the sports fields, swimming in pools, playing in our parks and various other facilities; ■ Extra maintenance costs, insurances and requirements for sidewalks and lanes owned by the city; ■ Adequate customer parking downtown; ■ No impact on the lack of spend-

ions and chairs for their comfort. Some equipment has to be purchased by the resident, and many are unable to afford these as they can cost $3,000. John, a veteran of WW11, was fortunate to have the help from the Department of Veterans Affairs for the equipment he needed. The success of their efforts to support excellence in healthcare delivery by providing vitally important equipment for the resident depends more and more on the generosity of community members. Anyone choosing to donate to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation and wishing to help the residents of Polson Extended Care Unit please make sure you mark your donation specifically for the Residents Comfort Fund. The address for the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation is 2101 - 32nd Street, Vernon, B.C, V1T 5L2. P. Bayne

ing by the city for maintenance issues affecting our daily business operations; ■ And finally, we have no vote at all for those that are elected by the residential tax base but spend our money too! As far as businesses having votes in different constituencies, this should be mandated as well. One commercial vote for only one property in each voting area...if the owner wishes to assign this voting right to his tenant, then this is fine. This should be the case as different issues are prevalent in different areas of our province and country. Mr. Bonsan seems to fail to realize that, at any given time, the total residential vote far exceeds the commercial vote which, in fact, usually supports the residential tax base citizens' desires. Giving business a vote is tokenism at best but it is, at least, democratic. This is why councils can pander to the residential voter base time and time again but still hammer away at business with their budgets and unilateral assessment powers without any consequences whatsoever. At least Brian Bonney represents his members and exposes the inequities for what they are...a growing tax grab from those who are not allowed to even vote...some democracy. Jeff Wuolle

WORLD VIEW How would you compare your present view of the world with those once expressed by William Wordsworth (1770-1850) and Robert Louis Stevenson (1850-1894)? "The world is too much with us; late and soon, Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers: Little we see in Nature that is ours; We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!" (Wordsworth) "The world is so full of a number of things, I'm sure we should all be as happy as kings." (Stevenson) Perhaps your world view lies somewhere in between. Gordon Anderson

LASTING LEGACY I would like to send kudos to Swan Lake Nursery for the excellent job they designed and paid for to beautify the north approach to the city. I thought they deserved our thanks for taking this badly needed task on. I can imagine in a few years, a beautiful tree-shaded boulevard that will be enjoyed by all. Andy Langlois

Former councillor files formal complaint RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A former Vernon councillor has launched a process over questions he claims the city is dodging. Barry Beardsell has filed an electoral complaint with the City of Vernon under provincial legislation. That means an auditor will have to get involved. “These questions were first asked in early 2008 and despite repeated requests from me, I’ve received a pittance of information,” he said. “They call themselves an open and transparent city hall but they’re far from it.” The issues Beardsell has raised include a sewer levy for a specified area, sewer charges relating to Coldstream and grants from the Okanagan Basin Water Board. He is also seeking information on revenue from the city’s former fast-track approval process for developments. Mayor Wayne Lippert says Beardsell is within his right as a resident to launch an auditor’s review, but he believes city staff has treated Beardsell fairly. “All of his questions have been answered but he didn’t get the answers he liked,” said Lippert. “I don’t see anything jumping out from this.” It’s not known what the auditor’s review will cost the city, but a similar process a few years ago came with a $7,800 price tag. “There is a cost to this process. Whatever the cost, we’ll make sure it’s public,” said Lippert. Beardsell puts any responsibility for costs of the reviwew back on to the city. “It shouldn’t have been necessary if they were doing their job,” he said. “If I can’t get simple answers from when I was still a councillor, what hope does the average taxpayer have?” Coun. Bob Spiers,

who initiated the last electoral complaint

before he was elected to office, is calling on the

city to maintain open communications with

Beardsell. “I hope we make a

point of interviewing him to find out what

his real concerns are,” said Spiers.

Man carrying sword draws officer’s look ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Curiosity on an RCMP dog handler’s part helped lead to a weapons arrest. On patrol Friday during Lumby Days, the dog handler saw a man walking in an alley behind Charles Bloom Secondary with something in his hand. “The officer decided to investigate and it turns out the man was walking with a samurai sword,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. Police said the intoxicated man, 26, from Lumby, was searched and a second weapon – a homemade weapon made from a garden implement – was found on his person. The man was arrested for being drunk in a public place and was taken into custody. He is also facing a charge of possessing a weapon dangerous to the public peace. Lumby RCMP report

Truck owners in the North Okanagan should pay extra attention to their vehicles following a rash of thefts. Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk said there were seven thefts of vehicles over the weekend, and six of them were trucks. “Everything from F350s to half-tons, and they were stolen right throughout the detachment area,” he said. A stolen car was recovered in the Salmon Arm area, and two of the trucks taken were swiped from Armstrong and Enderby. “It would appear we had an individual or individuals who were targeting trucks,” said Molendyk. “The theft of vehicles number is higher than the usual number for vehicle thefts.”

The City of Vernon is escalating its demands for changes in B.C.’s liquor laws. Council will ask the Union of B.C.

Buffy Baumbrough. While a winery can sell directly to a liquor store, a

Director reveals land purchase In order to avoid a potential conflict of interest, Coldstream director of development services Craig Broderick has informed council his mother has purchased a property beside the Coldstream Women’s Institute hall. The property, 9913 Kalamalka Road, is in an area the district has been considering for commercial development. “Some municipalities do have policies preventing employees from owning properties for investment purposes,” noted chief administrative officer Michael Stamhuis. “But this is a relative so it’s impossible to govern. “I can understand the desire to purchase the property but the public perception could be that something’s not right.” It was agreed that should any land use applications, such as rezoning, be made for the property, Broderick would not be present for those discussions. Council recognized the possibility of the public forming a negative opinion on the situation. “I was deeply concerned when I saw this because of the perception,” said Coun. Maria Besso. “It can definitely be taken the wrong way.” Since Broderick himself submitted the report to council and the fact the group agreed he should be absent for discussions regarding the property, it is hoped a conflict will be avoided. Council also decided a third party will review any land use applications for the property.

recently lobbied provincial officials for amendments to the liquor regulations. The Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce has also played an active role on the issue, recently gaining the endorsement of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce. “We need everyone to help support moving this policy forward,” said Val Trevis, Greater Vernon chamber general manager. “We hope to see a resolution to this sooner than later.”

Thanks to a witness being alert, Lumby RCMP were able to arrest a suspected impaired driver before any damage was done. The witness reported that a westbound pickup was being driven erratically June 8 on Highway 6 around mid-day. Police were able to intercept the vehicle and, report police, the driver was indeed intoxicated. “He was arrested and subsequently supplied breath samples three times the legal limit,� said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. To make matters worse for the driver, there was no insurance on the truck, and he was not licensed to drive. “Evidence indicated he had been openly drinking in the vehicle while driving along the highway,� said Proce. “This was an accident waiting to happen but fortunately, a concerned citizen called it

News Restaurants a target in new scam Morning Star Staff

The Interior Health Authority is warning restaurants about fraudsters posing as health inspectors. Restaurants across IHA have reported receiving telephone calls from people alleging to be health authority inspectors and threatening fines for not scheduling inspections. “This appears to be part of an on-going North America-wide scam that has been reported in the media as an attempt to circumvent Craigslist’s security settings through identity fraud,” said Ken Christian, IHA’s regional director of health protection. Environmental health officers do not routinely call food service establishments to schedule inspections. In almost all cases, inspections are unannounced. Restaurants that

Suspects sought as tree limbs torn off

have received such calls should report them immediately to the police. “Interior Health environmental health officers carry official health authority photo ID,” said Christian. “Restaurant operators or restaurant staff

should always request to see this ID, especially when the environmental health officer who arrives at the restaurant isn’t known to staff.” Christian said that if a restaurant has unwittingly booked a fraudulent inspection over the phone, and some-

one posing as a health inspector shows up, the restaurant operator or staff should ask to see the inspector’s official IHA identification. “If none can be produced, refuse the person entry and immediately call the police through 911.”

Ranch hosts Do It For Dad Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents can join the fight against prostate cancer. The 11th annual Do It For Dad Run and Walk will be held Sunday at Coldstream Ranch. All proceeds raised at this event stay in the community to assist with the education, awareness, testing and treatment of prostate cancer. “The only cure for prostate cancer is early detection,” said Dr. April Sanders, honorary event chairwoman. “And PSA testing is the route to early detection”. Complimentary PSA coupons will be available to event participants who want them. Registration opens on Father’s Day at 8:30 a.m. and the walk and run starts at 9:30 am. Registration is $10 for youths and $20 for adults. If you raise $50 or more in pledges, your registration is waived. “The Kalamalka Highlanders Pipe Band will serenade participants from the hillsides of the ranch, adding to the festive spirit, and the Kalamalka Caring Klowns will entertain the crowd,” said Doreen Fisher, event co-ordinator. “A new addition this year is Kiki the Eco Elf, who

Police seize cocaine Morning Star Staff

A Lake Country resident is facing a drug-related charge after police allegedly observed the man selling drugs from his vehicle. Kelowna RCMP pulled over a black Volkswagen hatchback shortly after 7 p.m. June 8 on Dilworth Road after the 20-year-old driver was seen selling drugs from the vehicle. Police seized nearly half-an-ounce of crack cocaine, and close to $1,600 in cash, from the driver and the vehicle.

Volunteers are ‘priceless’ CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Interior Health North Okanagan Volunteer Services honoured its volunteer and auxiliary service volunteers at a tea at Schubert Centre recently. The dogs in the St. John’s Pet Therapy Program were represented by several of their members. “Dogs have a huge capacity for love and if that helps people, we’re happy to do it,” said Virginia Gooding, an Interior Health Board of Directors member and volunteer who visits local health care facilities with her dog, Molly. Pat Furey, acute area director North Okanagan, thanked the more than 800 volunteers who put in 40,000 hours in 30 programs in 2009. “Our volunteers are an essential part of our team of caregivers. Your gift is priceless,” she said. Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary president, Elaine Dubois, and Armstrong Spallumcheen Auxiliar y president, Sandra Borden, thanked their members.

Central Okanagan trustees given financial boost MIKE SIMMONS Black Press

As the school year drifts to a close, trustee compensation has been given a boost. The Central Okanagan School District board has voted to increase trustee indemnities by 1.2 per cent, or approximately $1,500 total for the board members combined. The increase will carry through until June of 2011. Currently, trustee indemnities sit at $17,658 per year. The board vice-chair receives $18,552 and the board chair receives $19,909 per year. The indemnity for trustees was frozen from Jan. 1 to June 30. Trustee Gail Given said the indemnity is set using a weighted average of the increase being given to all employees of the district. Effective in July 2010, district teachers will receive a two per cent pay increase, while other unionized school district employees will see no change. Given noted the alteration of trustee indemnities used to happen in December, and will now align with the school budget year. She added the trustee indemnity is equivalent to or lower than those of many school districts of a similar size, such as Abbotsford, Mission, Burnaby or Victoria. “Even with this indemnity increase, we still fall below most districts.” The Burnaby district currently pays its trustees $20,407, Greater Victoria district trustees receive $17,424 and a laptop offer, Abbotsford district gives its trustees $21,000 and the Mission school district trustee indemnity rests at $11,250. Trustee Jeff Watson urged trustees to rethink the increase. He pointed out that the district’s partner groups are not going to be able to enjoy increases over the next two years. “We need to lead by example.”

Trustee Moyra Baxter said she had been a board member

when increases had not occurred for a time and the board at the time

had to play catch-up. “It looks terrible.” She suggested the

board stick to the weighted average, which could mean a zero per

cent increase next year if the weighted average is zero.

“After six months of no increase, this is the right thing to do.”

Inner thoughts revealed to audience JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

Audiences will get the opportunity to be a fly on the wall at Prodigy Productions’ new play. “We call it environmental theatre,” said Robyn Shanks, an actor in the upcoming production at Gallery Vertigo entitled Say the Right Thing. The play will take place in several rooms, and the audience follows the actors from room to room after every scene. “It’s like watching a movie happen right in front of you,” said Alex Judd, another actor in the production. The play, which stemmed from a Prodigy Productions acting class taught by the company’s director Matt Brown, follows two characters played by Judd and Starling Taylor. What makes it especially unique is that the two characters‘ inner thoughts are being personified for the audience by actors Shanks and Jerry Graham. “It’s all about trying to say what you really want to say,” said Graham. “People will be intrigued and surprised by this work,” said Brown, who wrote and directed the play. The entire group got together at the end of their class and put together a “skeleton” for the play, and then Brown wrote in the dialogue.

“It’s been good to work with this group,” said Brown. He does productions like this with his classes every year. Vernon is a town full of potential said Brown, and he is committed to contributing to the art scene in a meaningful way. “We have the opportunity to have a voice here in our community,” he said. That is why it was decided that the play would use Gallery Vertigo as a venue. “It’s important to connect with people who are like-minded,” said Brown. “They support us and we support them.” Due to the size of the venue the production has become much more intimate than it would have been otherwise. Only 20 people can attend each performance. “There’s something special about a small venue,” said Brown. But the close quarters do not go unnoticed by the actors. “It’s just something you have to learn to ignore,” said Graham. But all of the actors agreed that it is nerve racking getting on stage under any circumstances. There are six opportunities to see the show which will be running at 7 p.m. on June 23, 24, 25, 30, and July 1 and 2. Tickets are $12.50, with part of the proceeds going to Gallery Vertigo. They an be purchased at the gallery at 503-2297.

Summer art season sizzles on the mountain top JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

The summer art season is about to begin at Gallery Odin at Silver Star Mountain Resort. In its eighth year of operation, Gallery Odin, owned by Kalman and Maria Molnar, has scheduled two opening receptions to display its summer collection which will be running until the end of the season. The gallery is featuring 25 Canadian artists, some of whom have been with them for years. Gallery Odin has also added two new artists to their collection. Anne Crook, an Ottawa artist currently residing in Vernon, specializes in Prismacolour pencil drawings. “She creates beautiful Okanagan scenes that are very light and fresh,”

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Peter Lawson, who painted Okanagan Memories, will be among the artists exhibited at Gallery Odin June 24 and 26. said Maria. And then there is Jean-Francois Racine, a Quebec artist who uses oil paintings to depict the Okanagan. “He paints very realistic oils of not only Okanagan scenes, but

people as well,” said Maria. “You don’t see that very often. It makes it very interesting and different.” The show will feature an abundance of art including oil and

acrylic paintings, alabaster and jade carvings, ceramic pieces, scrimshaw on fossilized mammoth tusks, all of which display a variety of styles and themes. “We never tell our artists what to paint,” said Maria. But much of the work tends to feature the Okanagan landscape “because the valley is just so beautiful,” said Kalman. Everything in Gallery Odin is a one-of-a-kind piece of artwork. “We don’t sell prints. There’s no T-shirts or coffee mugs,” said Kalman. Kalman has been dealing with art since the ‘60s, which is why he and his wife Maria decide to start what he calls a “full-time passion.” “Kal has such a passion and knowledge for art and artists,” said Maria.

Their two-room gallery will display more than 100 pieces of art, all of which can be seen and purchased online at www.galleryodin. com as well. The opening receptions are an opportunity guests to view the artwork, discuss it with the Molnars or maybe even some of the artists, and purchase if they feel so inclined. “It’s a very personal experience,” said Maria. There are no tickets required, and about 140 to 160 people are expected for each reception. The openings are on June 24 from 6 to 10 p.m., and June 26 from 2 to 6 p.m. at the gallery located at 215 Odin Rd. on Silver Star Mountain. For more information, call 5030822.

Youth sought for Crusoe camp Morning Star Staff

Registration is now underway for the Robinson Crusoe Musical Theatre Camp. Registrations are open for local children ages six to 18 to be part of the 40 to 60-member cast conducted by Missoula Children’s Theatre. The camp starts on July 12, with auditions that will determine where all the participants will fit into this unique production. Four days of preparation follow and finally two performances of Robinson Crusoe are held July 17 at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. “For those who aren’t interested in being in the spotlight, there are also four backstage spots available that will teach important fundamentals of running a production from behind the scenes,” said Brian van Wensem, audience development co-ordinator with the performing arts centre. “No advanced preparation is necessary. Participants need only to arrive with the desire to join an onstage adventure, learning a unique adaptation to the classic story of Robinson

Local youth can sign up for the Robinson Crusoe Musical Theatre Camp, which starts July 12. Crusoe. It’s an experience that develops creativity, social skills, goal achievement and self esteem.” Registration is first-comefirst-served and there are a total

of 60 casting spots available: 13 for ages 6-7, 22 for ages 8-12, 20 for ages 13-18. An additional four spots are available for assistant directors (backstage) open to ages 12-18.

Festival has jammed schedule If they packed any more into the lineup, you’d need a second pair of ears plus eyes in the back of your head to take it all in. This year’s Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival takes place from Aug. 13 to 15 at the Salmon Arm Fairgrounds. For three days, the festival will present many of your favourite artists like Canadian traditional rock icon Gord Downie, three-time Grammy nominee Joan Armatrading, 2010 Juno Artist of the Year K’naan, and Martha Wainwright, who bears it all in an interpretation of Edith Piaf songs. But there’s a whole lot more than world renowned headliners to discover at at the Salmon Arm Roots and

Blues Festival. The rhythms of world music can be heard throughout the 18-acre site, filling the air with the sights and sounds of far-off lands as artists like Kinobe and Soul Beat Africa, Nomfusi, and the Jacky Essombe Dance Troupe share the traditions of African music and dance. Supergenerous serves up a cool cocktail of maritime, samba and country styles, and Non Stop Bhangra delivers a visual and sonic explosion of bhangra, hip hop, reggae and electronica. Advance weekend and day passes for the Roots and Blues Festival are now on sale. Purchase online at www.rootsandbues.ca or for information, call 250833-4096.

Door shuts on gifted classrooom MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

The gifted classroom at Ranchero school will close its doors at the end of June, to be replaced in September by a different method of delivering support for gifted students. The decision has left parents of the eight students in the class disappointed, while North Okanagan-Shuswap School District administration say it will be a more equitable way to deliver service in light of budget constraints. Morag Asquith, director of instructionspecial education, said the district has posted a job for an itinerant teacher who will be responsible for overseeing programs for gifted students and working directly with teachers. In the first year of a three-year plan, the four schools with the highest percentage of gifted students will be targeted. One day of the five-day week, the teacher will visit the other schools. She said which four schools will be targeted is still under review, because there are 100 students still being test-

ed, with the testing to be completed sometime mid-month. “Then we will have an idea of where the pockets are,” Asquith said. She said a team of individuals including parents and teachers has been meeting to look at options for supporting the 130 identified gifted students from grades four to eight in the district. The new option chosen will not be a costsaving, but it will spread resources further. Asquith said although school boards are being forced to cut budgets, this school district has decided to continue funding for gifted students. “We will be continuing services for 130 students instead of the select eight. It’s not necessarily ideal, we would love to have the itinerant teacher as well as the classroom. But we don’t receive any additional support for gifted.” She said it’s not known yet what methods the itinerant teacher will use to support gifted students, as they will depend on the school population and other

factors. “Some might be extra-curricular, some might be a morning class, some might be pull-in or pull-out programs... I think the itinerant will have to be very flexible.” Parent Karin Wilkie said she and the other parents are very disappointed with the decision to shut down the classroom, especially when a clause in the proposal they’ve seen says any children with social or behavioural problems would have to go to the alternate program. “The problem doesn’t lie with the child, it’s the environment that’s not right,” said Wilkie. “That was the most disappointing, that was frightening to us.” She also notes that the research available shows a gifted classroom is the best place for gifted students. She adds that it will be difficult for parents to plan when they don’t know what school will be the best option for their child. But she does see positives from the district’s decision. “I’m happy that the

district still feels funding has to be there for gifted, so there will be some services for gifted children – so the district understands that gifted students need support.” Asquith said the district had to make a decision based on how many students had been identified, as well as considering students in Armstrong, Enderby and Sicamous who might not be able to get transportation to

Ranchero. “We were forced to make a decision and it had to be made on the concrete numbers we had.” Superintendent Doug Pearson said this is one of the few districts in B.C. that takes money from general revenue to support the gifted program. “We know of many districts who’ve stopped direct support for gifted students.”

Expense accountability

T

he topic of discussion on the Hill recently was expenses for Members of Parliament. In a previous column, I reported how all MPs are given an operational budget to work within. Why was I the lowest spending MP in B.C. and one of the lowest in Canada? I am a little frugal but the real truth here is my costs are different from other MPs. First, our children are all married, making it easier for my wife, Jacquie, to accompany me to Ottawa. My wife is with me because we do not want this job to compromise our marriage (marriage fatalities amongst MPs are Colin Mayes very high). There is also a financial benefit for us being together – I don’t need to travel back to the constituency every week to be with her. This saves about $2,500 every return trip. My travel expenses are half the cost when compared to younger MPs with family back home. Another factor: rent for office space is lower in Vernon than say Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal or other tight markets. I have fewer staff as I use students or interns to complement my Ottawa office. Also, I have a smaller constituency area than many rural ridings in more remote regions of Canada. Although I would like to stick my chest out, the truth is the similarity is like comparing apples to oranges.

MP REPORT

Additionally, I need to give credit to my staff as they know that I am a stickler on the use of taxpayers’ money and therefore conduct themselves accordingly. All members’ operational budgets are audited by public accounts. Why, you may ask, does the auditor general want to review MP accounts? Auditor General Sheila Fraser said: “It was not a detailed audit of their expenses. What we would look at are the systems and the policies and procedures of the House administration, so largely the work of the clerk and her staff.” (She wanted to do an audit of “value for money “by looking at the way accounts are set up, to determine if there is a better and more efficient way to operate Members’ budgets.) Our government informed Canadians that if elected we would ensure that we didn’t have another “sponsorship scandal” or a “Shawinigate” (legacy of the previous Liberal government). Our government brought in the federal Accountability Act to ensure openness and transparency. The act also reformed election funding so unions and corporations couldn’t influence governments by funding election campaigns. Lobbyists are now compelled to register and government appointments are now based on ability and merit not political association. Yes, we all have biases but I am proud that our government has made significant steps to assure the public that we respect the public purse and conduct your affairs in an ethical and reasonable manner.

Children’s safety focus of government support With traffic crashes killing 20 child passengers every year, the provincial government is supporting the BCAA Traffic Safety Foundation’s June child passenger safety information blitz by reminding parents and caregivers of key laws aimed at keeping B.C.’s most precious cargo safe. More than 2,100 child

passengers are also injured in road crashes every year, and the province has brought in a number of measures to protect children at every stage of their development, while they are passengers in vehicles. ■ Infants must be in rearfacing infant seats that are not placed in front of an active frontal air bag, until

the baby is at least one year of age and nine kg (20 lbs.). ■ Children over one year old and between nine and 18 kg (20-40 lbs.) must be seated in a child car seat. ■ All children over nine kg (40 lbs.) need to be in a booster seat until they are 1.45 metres (4 ft., 9 in.) tall or nine years of age. Booster

seats reduce the risk of serious injury or death in a crash by more than two-thirds. This past spring, the government also introduced changes to the Motor Vehicle Act to protect children when they are passengers on motorcycles. When the new regulations come into effect later

this year, motorcycle operators will be responsible for ensuring passengers under the age of 16 are wearing an approved helmet. As well, all motorcycle passengers must be able to position their feet on foot pegs or floor boards. To further protect the health and safety of children,

smoking is banned in vehicles carrying anyone under the age of 16. More information about child restraint and booster seat requirements is available at www.tsfbcaa.com/child_ safety_seats online. Motorcycle helmet and safety information is at www. pssg.gov.bc.ca/osmv/ online.

sports B Bigsby goes large in Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; win EDITOR: Kevin MitchellssSPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM

Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Re/Max Tigers are so deep in talent, they really never know who's going to step up and be the first star come game nights. Second-year Craig Bigsby, 17, took a turn Saturday night, exploding with four goals and five assists as the Tigers ambushed the South Okanagan Flames 17-5 in Okanagan Thompson Junior Lacrosse League play at Wesbild Centre. The first-place Tigers are 10-0-1, while the last-place Flames dropped to 0-9-2. Vernon hosts he Rutland Raiders Saturday night. "Everyone was contributing and getting me the ball," said Bigsby, a Grade 12 VSS student. "I was shooting from outside the dots, high and low, mixing my shots up. Once I scored the first one, I felt I was in a groove." Five-year veteran Blake Lewis, an alternate captain with the 2009 provincial silvermedalist Tigers, wasn't surprised by Bigsby's outburst. "Biggs had a really good rookie campaign, and he hasn't missed a beat this season either," said Lewis, who counted 1+2. "He is the type of guy you want to have the ball when we are on offence because he has proved to score from any angle, under all sorts of pressure. His nine-point game is just a single example of how well he has played for us." Brooks Christensen supplied 3+4, while Braidy Webb earned 2+2 and Brennan Plante and Nolan Frame also scored twice for the Tigers, who held period leads of 3-2 and 10-5.

South Okanagan Flamesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Derek Grimm (left) takes a swat at the Vernon Tigersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brennan Plante (right) in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League play Saturday at Wesbild Centre. They scored two of their seven third-period goals on the powerplay. Matt Kolb, with 1+2, captain Rob Short and Riley Soleway rounded out the Re/Max scoring in front of Josh Point, who collected two assists while making 21 saves. Bayne Bosquet also bagged two assists. Brent Fougiere, Derek Grimm, Su Watts,

Quinn Ramsay and Niko Sopow replied for the Flames. Lewis says the Tigers possess so many offensive threats, they never worry about where the goals are going to come from. Vernon averages almost nine goals a game. "A good example is Nolan (Frame). He didn't play that much last season, but this

year he has way more confidence with the ball. He got more playing time this season and took advantage of it, producing consistently every game for us. We have so much potential on offense that some really good players can't crack the lineup." Bigsby, whose previous single game-high was 2+3, said the Tigers tightened things up as they shut out the Flames in the third period. "The whole team just started playing better defence and we starting working harder. We're playing more of a team game than last year." The Tigers moved four points ahead of the second-place Kamloops Venom, who beat the Raiders 12-9 Saturday night. Lewis said the Cats are gunning for a second shot at a gold medal. "We know how well we can play. We feel we are better then we were last year, and anything short of another provincial berth will be disappointing. As long as we stick to the coach's systems, and guys are accountable and know their roles, there is no reason that we can't make another push for that provincial title." Garrett Burton provided 4+2 as the Kamloops Rattlers downed the visiting Armstrong Shamrocks 12-5 Sunday. Devon Larsen chipped in with 3+1 for the Rattlers (5-5), while Dalaney Halifax pulled the hat trick and Logan Strohm scored twice for the 4-8 Shamrocks. Armstrong hosts the Kelowna Warriors Friday night.

Eat, sleep, play. That has pretty much been Cassandra Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily routine for the last week as she trains with Team Canada in preparation for the FIBA Americas U18 Basketball Championships. But for a girl who sweet-talked Fulton Secondary janitors into allowing her after-hours hoop sessions in the school gym, she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mind the heavy workload. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been two-a-day every day, probably two or three hours each, so it is a lot of basketball,â&#x20AC;? said Brown, a lithe, 6-foot-2 shooting ace who led the Maroons to silver at the senior AA girls provincials this spring in Kamloops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve crammed tons and tons of plays in the last week, probably more than we did in five years at Fulton. A lot of different sets, different offences and defences.â&#x20AC;? Brown, who will miss her Fulton Secondary graduation as she trains with the U18 squad this week in Toronto, leaves for the eight-team

tourney on Saturday. Canada will warm up for the event with exhibition games against the U.S. and Brazil. The tournament goes June 23-27 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It does suck to not be there with my friends, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be sad when I see all the grad photos on Facebook and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not in any of them, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d much rather be where I am right now,â&#x20AC;? said Brown, who was named Top AA Female at the B.C. High School Basketball Awards following provincials. If anyone knows Brownâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commitment to the sport, it is Fulton head coach Jim Inglis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t begin to express how proud I am at the moment,â&#x20AC;? said Inglis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will miss grad to represent our country at an international tournament in Colorado which is unfortunate but it is just part of her dream... she is disappointed to not be with her friends, but elated to have been selected.â&#x20AC;?

The U.S, Puerto Rico, Argentina and Brazil will battle in Pool B, with the top two teams from the round-robin advancing to the medal round semifinals and play for the top four seeds. Teams that finish third and fourth in each preliminary round group will advance to the consolation semifinals and play for the fifth to eighth spots. The top four teams overall will qualify for the FIBA U19 World Championship in Chile. Said head coach Rich Chambers: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am extremely pleased with our final roster as we have selected a very athletic group that can play more than one position as they all possess a multi-faceted skill set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our expectations are that we continue to improve as a team and hopefully will be playing our best basketball when the tournament begins.â&#x20AC;?

Vipers sign prospects

Trail clips D’backs

Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

The Trail Orioles swiped a pair of games from the Vernon ANAF Diamondbacks in senior men’s inter-league baseball play Saturday at Marshall Field. The Orioles opened with a 9-2 win and followed that with a 6-1 decision. In the opener, the Orioles jumped all over a trio of Vernon errors in the first inning to take a 4-0 lead. The Diamondbacks got a run back in the second as Steve Daamen singled with one out, then scored on a bases-loaded single by Tyler Amiel. The Orioles, who will host the 2010 B.C. Senior Men’s Baseball Championships, responded in the fifth with three more runs, before the D-backs got another run back. Amiel was moved to second on a sacrifice bunt by Kyle Anderson, before Josh Wade (2-for-3) drove him in. Trail pitcher Kellen Jones (Vernon Viper grad) shut the Diamondbacks down after that, tossing a complete game four-hitter. Geoff Cleavely ripped a line

Game 2 saw Trail score three times in the first inning. D-backs’ starter John McInnis settled down and put up a couple zeroes until the fifth, where Anderson inherited a first-and-second situation. Anderson struggled with his command, walking five in one-and-athird innings, somehow managing to only give up two runs.

The only run the D-backs scored came on a wild pitch. Daamen, Wade, Amiel, Anderson and Bryce Whitehouse all had singles. Next up for the Diamondbacks is a mid-week Okanagan Major Baseball League showdown with the Kelowna Jays, Wednesday, June 23 at Marshall. For more information, including statistics, visit www.vernondbacks.com.

They won’t be booking a ticket to the Royal Bank Cup just yet, but the Vernon Vipers are certainly restocking the cupboard with some quality players. Shortly after signing Thunder Bay’s Todd Skirving and Vancouver’s Marcus Basara (Notre Dame Hounds), the Vipers have committed to Los Angeles Jr. Kings forward Darren Nowick, and Calgary Northwest Flames defenceman Brett Corkey for the 2010-11 B.C. Hockey League season. Nowick played last season in the Mid West Elite Hockey league. In 48 games he scored 25 goals and 22 assists for 47 points. Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner calls Nowick a skilled two-way centreman who was one of the top players at a recent prospects camp he attended in California. “He’s a player that I really, really like. He’s got a tremendous work ethic and he’s very dedicated to being a hockey player,” said Ferner. “I’m going to put some pressure on him here and say he has a work ethic like the Jonesies (Connor and Kellen). There’s not a lot of holes in his game. He’s

an endless worker and a skilled guy.” Corkey is a smooth skating blueliner who has shown an ability to contribute offensively. Last season he scored six goals and nine assists for 15 points in 29 games. “He’s not overly big, but he’s a puck-moving guy,” said Ferner. “He’s going to be put right in the fire because we don’t have a lot of guys coming back.” Corkey got into some Alberta Junior Hockey League action as a call-up with the Calgary Canucks. Meanwhile, the Vipers have sent defenceman Darrin Robak to the Cowichan Valley Capitals to complete the future considerations portion of the deal that brought d-man Curtis Gedig to the Vernon at the January trade deadline. The Vipers had already dealt defenceman Nick Amies and forward Drew George to Cowichan as part of the deal. Robak, who also played forward last season, had two goals for seven points in 17 games. Ferner thanked him for his time with the Vipers and wished him the best of luck with the Capitals.

Schenker shines for Camels Morning Star Staff

Bryan Schenker scored twice as the Vernon Liquor Store Camels shut down Kelowna Scotiabank 3-0 in Okanagan Men's 35+ Soccer League play Monday night at Marshall Field #2. Rick Danyluk opened the offence in the sixth minute when he sped down the wing and converted a feed low off the post after the Camels had connected with a handful of nice passes. At 20 minutes, Schenker went far corner after taking a nifty through ball from John Burns. Schenker completed the humpbacks' scoring in the 35th minute when he made a crafty solo run against an offside trap, deked the keeper and finished. Mike Moorlag recorded the shutout, making several clutch second-half saves with Scotiabank pressing. The Camels improved to 5-3. In other 35+ league action, Vernon Toyota brushed back Lake Country 3-1 at Beasley Park in Winfield. Vernon Toyota had their strongest outing of the year as they went to 5-1-2. Eric Ladner ripped the ball around the Lake Country wall and off the crossbar into the net to

open the scoring. Vernon kept up the pressure and Mike Sandstra was rewarded with a breakaway goal. Don Balcombe rounded out the Toyota offence on a great individual effort midway through the second half. Balcombe turned several defenders inside out and tucked the ball into the corner of the net, beating a confused Lake Country keeper. Lake Country scored with 20 minutes to play but the Toyota defensive unit cranked up their play the rest of the way. Penticton F.C. smothered Vernon Bosman Accounting 6-0 at Mission 73 Park in Kelowna. In Capri Insurance Men's 45+ League action, Chris Reeves and Matthias Gohl scored twice as Okanagan Spring Brewery bounced Baxter's Pub 5-0 Monday night at Marshall Field #3. Mike Lloyd also scored for the brewers (5-4), who got a shutout from 50+ league call-up Mike Zuber. Gordie Howard pulled the hat trick as the Hi-Pro Sports Camels grounded Pushor Mitchell of Kelowna 4-0 at Rutland Sports Fields. Rob Hulstein, who earned honourable mention behind Howard for Man of the Match, also scored,

going crossbar and in after a pass from Howard. Ron Krause subbed for suspended keeper Dave Dutcher and made a diving save off Pushing’s John Pratch on a first-half penalty kick, awarded after Jim Mottus was called for a foul inside the 18. The Camels lead the league at 9-0 with only one goal against. Kelowna Cantina's Pub clipped the Big O Tire Ogopogos 2-1 in Rutland. Big O opened the scoring against the run of play in the first half when Rob Ross capitalized on a series of Cantina's defensive errors. In the second half, however, it was all one-way traffic as Cantina's dominated offensively. Ray Heathcote equalized with an off-speed daisycutter from the left side to the far post. Greg Hofmann finally located the net after a variety of exploratory efforts when his looping shot crept in at the back post and gave Cantina's their third victory of the year. Paul Hunter and Steve McPhate supplied several good through balls as the Ogopogos enjoyed some sustained pressure. Speedy tireman Parm Kler received a yellow birthday card for dissent from Irish referee Mike Kelly. Penticton tripped up the Silver

U11s bounce Penticton

for the boys and the coaching staff. It was not only wonderful to win, but also see the progress of the entire U11 development players over the last few months. It was a great effort by all involved.” Vernon United played their finest game of the Thompson Okanagan Under 14 Boys Rep Soccer League season by drawing 1-1 with Penticton at Beasley Park in Winfield. The first match between these teams ended with a 7-1 Penticton victory.

Vernon United Under 11 boys development teams enjoyed solid youth soccer weekends. Team #1 swept two Penticton teams, winning the opener 7-3 behind Mathew Kowalski's hat trick. Jason Shaigec, Morgan Nichols, Langdon Kersey and Liam Hennig provided singles. Connor London, Shane Pelkey and Mitchell Alexander were strong on defence. In the second game, Vernon ran to a 9-0 swamping of Pentiction #2 with Kowalski supplying four goals. Singles came from Hennig, Shaigec, Nichols, Kersey and Pelkey. Pelkey and Alexander shared in the shutout. Coach Steve Pelkey praised Charis Ondrik for being "a pillar of strength in the sweeper position. He controlled the back line beautifully and he helped set up many of his teammates' goals." Vernon United Team #3 posted a 5-0 victory over Penticton #3. Kenzel Aarts Roman opened the scoring with a 20-yarder to the left corner. Aarts Roman then scored again on a cross by defender Joshua Hyer. Vernon scored a third just before half time when right back Christopher Moore send Aarts Roman deep on the right wing. Aarts Roman gave a precise cross high in front while left winger Mees Geelkerken flew in with a high kick, finishing in the top left corner. "A perfect Vernon attack finished off with a beautiful goal," said coach Erick Burnet. Vernon continued the second half with attacking. Centre midfielder Malcolm Wiens went on a solo run, passed four Penticton defenders and easily went low left corner. Another Wiens goal followed after he received the ball from Tilon (TJ) Ward and hit the ball from long distance. Aaron Botterill and Wyatt Carter earned the shutout. Vernon 3# suffered a 3-2 loss in their second game of the day against the Kamloops Blaze. Wiens again scored two goals, one of them being a smart header. Vernon United Team #2 ended their U11 development season with two victories over Penticton #2 and #1 by margins of 4-3 and 3-1 respectively. In their first match, Elias Jensen opened the scoring on a great run after being sprung by Reed Cashato. Jensen deked around the Penticton keeper and cooly hammered the ball into the back of the net. Jared Quibell added to the Vernon total after he pounced on a loose ball at the goal mouth, after the Penticton defenders failed to clear a Christopher Richardson cross. Cashato then made it 3-0 after collecting a failed Penticton clearance about eight yards out and struck the ball into the left side of the net. In the second half, Penticton scored three unanswered goals to equalize. Vernon finally replied after Jensen flicked a Quibell corner just inside of the far post to give United the lead. Riley Davis parried a lastminute penalty shot to preserve the win. “A great effort overall”, said Vernon #2 coach Rolf Hirschkorn. “We had only one sub and the boys lost some of their steam in the second half, but they never gave up.” In game 2, Connor Marritt scored the lone goal of the first half after he rocketed a penalty shot into the top right corner. Vernon #2 doubled their lead in the second half after Richardson gathered a cheeky Jensen back heel at the top left of the box and chipped the ball over the Penticton keeper. After the hosts scored, Vernon #2 sealed the deal after Peter Hirschkorn fought off a Penticton defender and passed the ball to Quibell who wired the shot left side. “It was a great way to finish off the season

Rangers hold back Stealers in thriller Morning Star Staff

The Watkin Motor Rangers outlasted the Five Star Award Stealers 9-7 in a thrilling Pee Wee baseball game Monday night at Creekside Park. The Rangers jumped out to a 8-3 lead after two innings and then needed some spectacular defence to stop the Stealers in the final regular-season game of the season. Kyle Dennis’ center field catch in the third inning was a big highlight. The Rangers scored four runs in each of the first two innings, getting a two-run double by Jacob Holland in the second inning. The Stealers settled down after that and, behind quality pitching, made things interesting. The Stealers bats woke up in the fourth inning with big hits from Tyler Liefke, Jon McIntyre and Jordy Griffiths touching off a four-run outburst. Garner Chudyk pitched the last two innings for Five Star, getting six straight outs to give his team a chance. With the Stealers threatening, the Rangers closed out the game on a nice doubleplay. The Rangers sent Seth Blundell, Holland, Tanner Graham and Jarett Campbell to the mound with Dennis recording the save. For the Stealers, Liefke, Brett Lambert, Carson Gray and Chudyk pitched well, keeping the Rangers off balanced. Pee Wee playoff action starts Friday

Legends fall in tourney Morning Star Staff

Nor-Val/Hub Barton Pee Wee A2 Legends dropped four games in the North Okanagan Minor Lacrosse Tournament last weekend. The Legends opened with a 10-8 loss to the Langley Thunder with goals coming from Jordan Barr (3), Mykl Drabiuk (2), Darien Ottesen, Conor Webb and Chase Wirth. The player of the game was Steele Pelletier for his solid goaltending. “We started off slower than what we wanted to with this game and were outshot and outchanced by Langley,” said Nor-Val coach Harold Mann. “We are looking forward to our Calgary tournament in July as we will have our chance with a re-match with Langley there.” The Legends then bowed 7-5 to the Burnaby Lakers. “We completely dominated this game and outshot them and won the

loose balls but just could not beat their goaltender enough for the win. It was a tough loss to take.” Drabiuk (2), Barr (2) and Cole Martin handled the offence. Game MVP was Jayden Hunter for his ballwinning battles at both ends of the floor. The Legends then lost 14-7 to eventual tournament winning Surrey A1. The Legends led 5-3 after the first before penalty troubles hit. Goals came from Drabiuk (3), Barr (2), game MVP Webb and Stephane Richard. The Legends closed with a 13-7 loss to Chilliwack. “Chilliwack was a much bigger team than us and had little trouble driving the lane knocking over anything in their path,” said Mann. Barr (3), Drabiuk (2), Webb, Ottesen and Wirth scored. Richard took MVP for his physical play.

Pregnant with her third child, Tammy Anderson had every reason to expect that at the end of nine months she would be cradling her new baby in her arms. But at 37 1/2 weeks, she found herself saying goodbye instead of hello to her daughter when Emily was stillborn, the result of a nuchal cord accident. “When she was born, the doctor said the cord was wrapped tightly around the neck and there was a rashy patch on the cheek, but she said we’ll probably never know the real reason she died,” said Tammy Anderson Anderson. After spending time with her daughter, Anderson faced the unimaginable: leaving the hospital without her new baby. And instead of finding support and the chance to connect with other parents, Anderson experienced isolation and loneliness along with her overwhelming grief. “I went to the local health unit and was told there is no support group in the community because we are such a small town and the occurrence of it happening is so few and far between,” said Anderson, who lives in Jasper, Alta. “So I grieved in silence until I was offered the gift of a connection to another woman in town who had lost her own baby a few days after birth. I had never realized the power of a bond like this, of being able to completely relate on every level and be able to talk openly to someone who has been there and can share their struggles as well. “This was when I was truly able to begin to heal as I had someone with whom I could talk, about whatever I needed to, no matter how awful, she completely understood.” Anderson said she has learned that it is vital for parents to be able to feel that their feelings of loss are valid and to make a connection to another grieving parent who understands. “Memories are often all that grieving parents have to hold on to, and parents must find a way to get through, not get over their grief.” Since Emily’s stillbirth May 10, 2006, Anderson found herself with a need to offer the gift of a connection to other parents who have experienced the devastation of losing a child. Losing Emily is that gift. Subtitled A Journey Through Stillbirth to Finding Peace and Embracing New Hope, the book is a way of reaching out to bereaved parents as they embark on their journey of healing by offering words of comfort and peace, from someone who has been there and understands the struggles and depth of the unimaginable pain of losing a baby. “Whether your loss be from a miscarriage, stillbirth or early infant death, there is no greater heartbreak than losing your much loved and wanted child.” Anderson said for those who have not

Tammy Anderson hopes her book, Losing Emily, will be a support for other bereaved parents. experienced such a loss it is her hope that the book may shed some awareness and understanding on the subject of stillbirth and pregnancy loss. “It is a subject that is largely taboo in society today, it is too awful to think about or talk about, but the hard, sad reality is it happens, it happens too often and it is very real. People don’t talk about it because it is so awful and people will tiptoe around the subject, which leaves a grieving parent alone and confused in their mourning. “It is my dream and hope that in sharing our story, no parent will ever feel like they are alone as they travel their own journey of healing. “I came to realize that as bereaved parents, we will never get over our grief, but we do get through it somehow. My dream is that our little Emily’s legacy will reach out and offer others a connection, an outlet for their grief and the feeling of a hand to hold through the devastation around them. I hope they are able to find some measure of comfort and peace from reading our story.” Anderson wrote the book last summer and published it in February, through Oregon-based Inkwater Press, and she’s pleased at the response to her story.

Copies of the book have been purchased by health units, funeral homes, NICU’s, libraries and people in the medical field. “I have been told that they felt it will allow them to gain a better understanding of what parents are going through and felt that it will help them to enhance the care they can give the next patient.” Anderson can now think about Emily without the feeling of raw, intense pain. “Now I can think about her and it’s not that raw pain, I have happy memories of when she kicked. She’s still a part of our family. She’s still in all of our hearts, and it’s important that you don’t try to forget,” said Anderson, who experienced the joy of welcoming her fourth child, son Brennan, two years ago. “Through Emily’s tragic death, her legacy lives on by sharing a message of new hope to help bereaved parents as they move through the difficult and lonely process of healing while finding new strength to carry on without your child.” Losing Emily is available online at inkwaterbooks.com as well as Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The books is $18.95 (GST included) plus $2.10 shipping and handling and can also be ordered directly through Anderson by e-mailing tamfam@telus.net

trawberries not only appeal to us for their wonderful aroma, taste and bright red colour, but also for their nutritional value. They contain many antioxidants and vitamins. In fact, one cup of fresh strawberries will give 140 per cent of our daily allowance of vitamin C. Strawberries are packed with flavonoids which help keep bad (LDL) cholesterol from oxidizing and damaging artery walls. Another plus for adding strawberries to our diets is that they contain ellagic acid which binds cancercausing chemicals, making them inactive. Strawberry season has arrived in our area and besides enjoying them right out of the garden, perhaps with sugar,

The judges are coming Editor’s note: This week, the Communities in Bloom Committee fills in for regular columnist Fred Lyall. t has been a busy year for the Communities in Bloom Committee and it is hard to believe that the Communities in Bloom judges will be Fred Lyall here again in a very short time. On July 20, the committee will play host to the judges on a tour of our city, so it’s time to pull out those weeds, prune up those hedges and generally tidy up. The judges will be looking at specific places that the committee has organized for them, but

IN THE GARDEN

along the way they will see many nooks and crannies of our community. Although tidy boulevards, pretty flower displays and overall cleanliness are important, what they will really be looking for is our sense of community pride. People caring for and being involved in their community. Highlights for this year’s tour will include the planting of the median at the north end, the refurbishing of the flag at the north end tourist information booth, back alley gardens planted in the 3000 block of 30th Avenue, the community plantings on the new roundabout, and the latest community gardens at West Vernon school. These are just a few of the projects that have happened this past year, which help to make our community an amazing place to live. In addition to preparing for the judges’

visit, the committee has also initiated a garden contest, sponsored by Art Knapp, Swan Lake and the City of Vernon. Look for details at any of these locations, or on our new website: www.vernon.ca/cib. Also watch for sunflowers blooming around our community; with the help of members from two local garden clubs, the committee prepared 5,000 packages of sunflower seeds, which were distributed on Earth Day, at the Farmers’ Market, and will also be available at the Sunshine Festival on Saturday. Photos of your sunflowers can be sent to us on our new facebook page, www.facebook. comVernonCommunitiesInBloom. The making of a great community doesn’t happen in just one day but grows from the involvement of many people over time. July 20 gives us an opportunity to let Vernon shine.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Just because there might be a number of people collectively working on a project doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you should leave everything up to them. The more hands on the job, the lighter the tasks.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Just because things donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go perfectly, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think your initial assessment is completely erroneous. Instead of scrapping everything altogether, try to find the bugs in it that can be eliminated.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If you underestimate the value of the work you do in order to produce a great product, someone who appreciates your abilities could easily take advantage of you.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) You shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to avoid anything financial that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look completely kosher. If you think something is wrong, pass on it altogether.

Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once.

1

The year ahead is likely to produce a burst of new activities and a multitude of fresh social involvements that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy immensely. Additionally, the contacts you make will also function as door openers and bridges for other aspects of your life.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Someone to whom youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re attracted who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know you too well will judge you by the quality of your companions. To make a good impression, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hang out with those who have questionable reputations. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Get a priority out of the way as early as possible, because the longer you hem and haw and let the day wear on, the more things are likely to get tangled up and give you trouble. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Believing that wishing can make things happen can be a pleasant diversion, but actually bringing things into being takes knowledge and effort on your part. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t waste your time daydreaming. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Today brings much potential for success, but if you let selfdoubts stop you from capitalizing on your possibilities, nothing can be accomplished. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be fearful of trying. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Usually youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re an upfront person who isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to tell things like they are. It would be a mistake to hold back on telling someone the painful truth if it could be helpful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Your excellent earning abilities could be wiped out today if you allow poor spending usage to waste your funds. Have as much control over your wallet as you do your work ethics.

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

Bridge by Phillip Alder Comedian Bill Cosby said, “Men and women belong to different species, and communication between them is a science still in its infancy.” Bridge communication is a science not in its infancy; it has been recognized since the birth of the game. However, it is still overlooked by the inexperienced, whether men or women. Try this one on for size. You are in three notrump. West leads the spade seven. What would be your plan? The South hand is well worth a two-no-trump opening because 18 of its points are in aces and kings. You apparently start with nine top tricks: two spades (given the lead), one heart, five diamonds and one club. But the diamond suit

is blocked. After playing off your ace and king, you need some way to get to the board for the other three diamond winners. What are the possible entries to the board? Either black queen might do the job. Now analyze the opening lead. Assuming it is fourthhighest from West’s longest and strongest, you can apply the Rule of Eleven. Subtract seven (the value of the card led) from 11. The answer, four, tells you that there are four spades higher than the seven in the North, East and South hands combined. And you can see all four: dummy’s queen and your trio. East cannot have a high spade. This means that you can get to the dummy with the spade queen if you are

careful to take trick one with your king. Then unblock your two diamond honors and lead a spade toward the board. West cannot stop you. Note that if you win the first trick cheaply in your hand, West can keep you off the board.
