Judge issues jail time over seniors’ home arson ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The judge had some sympathy for the man convicted of arson but, in the end, he couldn’t have the man “running loose with lighters.” Judge Vincent Hogan sentenced Troy Ross Niehaus, 36, to three years in jail in Vernon Provincial Court Wednesday, after finding Niehaus guilty of arson in connection with a fire at the Orchard Valley Retirement Residence on Sept. 20, 2009. He credited the Vernon man with 18 months time served. “His life has been out of control since suffering a brain injury, and I fear for him and I fear for the future of the community,” said Hogan before imposing the

NAKED DECK EVENT

sentence. “Taking into account all of the factors, sad as they may be, I think three years in prison is appropriate. I’m sad for him, but I can’t have Mr. Niehaus running loose with lighters.” Niehaus was arrested on the same night as the fire, a short distance away from the retirement residence. The blaze forced evacuation of all the residents – some in their 80s and 90s – and staff, and caused approximately $78,000 in damage. Hogan found Niehaus guilty of the charge following a trial, stating he was particularly troubled by a Crown witness’ statement that Niehaus reportedly said “seniors make good firestarters.”

Niehaus, who was brain injured in a 1996 motor vehicle accident, claimed the fire was an accident, and reiterated that again when given the chance to address the court before sentencing, blaming a faulty lighter. “I’m sorry for lighting the fire, but it was an accident,” said Niehaus. Crown counsel Howard Pontious was seeking a jail term of two-to-three years, pointing out Niehaus was on probation for another matter when he started the Orchard Valley fire. Pontious referred to a pair of pre-sentence and psychological reports that painted a troubling picture of the accused. “He shows a remarkable lack

of insight, extreme impulsivity and is unresponsive to treatment,” said Pontious, reading from one of the reports. “There’s been a steady downward trajectory for Mr. Niehaus in the last 18 months. He’s a very high risk to re-offend.” Niehaus was also labelled a pyromaniac in one report. Defence lawyer Christine Wells told the court that her client spent a great deal of time caring for his elderly mother, disabled by a serious stroke, and that “doing time” has proved to be very difficult for Niehaus. “He’s been in the special needs section of KRCC (Kamloops Regional Correction Centre), and he won’t be very safe if put into the general population,” said Wells,

stating her concern for her client’s safety. “You talk about the community needing protection. Mr. Niehaus does as well.” While he expressed sympathy for Niehaus’s life – “he never asked for the brain injury” – and acknowledged he helped look after his ailing mom, Hogan took into account that the fire was started while Niehaus was on probation; that he had a history of offences while on probation; that he had substance abuse issues; and that he had resisted the hand of the community who tried to help him. Hogan also imposed a lifetime firearms prohibition on Niehaus, and ordered him to provide a DNA sample.

News Ministry reverses decision on land sale RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

An agency that assists special needs adults is one step closer to owning its home of almost 50 years. The Ministry of Education has reversed a previous decision and will now allow the Vernon School District to sell the Dorothy Alexander Centre to the Vernon and District Association for Community Living. “I know the society and the school district have been working on this for quite awhile,� said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA. “They can now get on with the business of the transfer. It’s a win for everybody.� VDACL and the school district actually reached a deal in February 2009 over the 8,500-square-foot building which is part of the former West Vernon Elementary site. However, the sale was stalled after the ministry indicated that surplus property owned by the school district could not be sold. Intense lobbying has been underway since that time. Foster says the ministry looked at the special circumstances surrounding the centre and decided that it could be sold. “It’s a piece of property that is separate from the other property. It won’t affect the West Vernon property,� he said. VDACL has been leasing the building

of the centre. The association’s goal is to relocate some of its programs to the centre from its Venture Training site. There is also the possibility of new skills programs like a coffee shop and art studio. Sports and theatre activities could also be expanded in the gym. “As our (clients’) population is aging, there is a need for different programs,� said Klaus Linemayr, VDACL president. Linemayr hopes the programs will continue to integrate the clients into the community. “That’s our goal all along,� he said. A price for the Dorothy Alexander Centre has not been determined yet, but the school district is looking forward to the infusion of money. “They are desperately needed funds,� said Bill Turanski, district chairman. He added hat a number of capital projects could benefit, including the board office which was built in 1972 and is overcrowded. “The ministry no longer provides funds for upgrading board offices.� CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR Turanski is pleased that the district and Bill Turanski, Vernon School District chairman, comments on the sale of the Dorothy Alexander VDACL can finally complete an arrangeCentre to the Vernon and District Association for Community Living. ment they began more than a year ago. “The community benefits and the school from the school district since 1961. and still think it’s theirs,� said Dorothy district benefits,� he said. “There’s a lot of students who went here Alexander, with VDACL and the namesake

Regional directors defend their annual pay RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan Regional District directors insist representing the public comes with a cost. Recently released financial documents show that $280,933 was paid out to 23 politicians who either sat on the regional district board or committees in 2009. That compares to $287,756 in remuneration and expenses for 28 elected officials in the previous year. “We’re being very prudent with our costs,� said Herman Halvorson, board chairman. Halvorson received $46,106 in salary and expenses in 2009 — $11,068 for being board chairman and $20,627 for representing rural Enderby. “I’m the lowest paid electoral area director here if my duties as

“We’re being very prudent with our costs.� — Herman Halvorson chairman are not included,� he said. Halvorson says the duties facing the five rural representative are considerable in terms of meetings, travelling and speaking with constituents. “The electoral area directors are the council and mayor for their area. Directors are busy.� Next highest was rural Lumby director Rick Fairbairn, who is also chairman of the White Valley parks committee and the Electoral

Area Advisory Committee. He had $31,665 in remuneration and expenses. “I’m down from 2008 and my expenses are consistent with attending functions for the regional district,� he said of representing NORD at meetings and conferences outside of the valley. Cherryville director Eugene Foisy reported $26,072 in 2009, while it was $30,407 for BX-Swan Lake director Mike Gavinchuk and $28,271 for BX-Silver Star director

Mike Macnabb. The highest paid municipal representative at the NORD table was Coldstream director Doug Dirk at $14,652. “It’s just straight meeting pay. I must have been more regular at meetings compared to other directors,� he said. In terms of the other municipal officials at NORD, remuneration and expenses were: Vernon director Jack Gilroy - $10,587, Spallumcheen director Will Hansma - $10,999, Vernon director Wayne Lippert $14,323, Vernon director Patrick Nicol - $11,591 and Armstrong director John Trainor - $12,579. Enderby was represented by Earl Shipmaker for much of 2009 and his remuneration and expenses were $11,147. But Dee Wejr took over that position late in the

year and her financials amount to $2,135. Lumby representation also varied in 2009. Kevin Acton received $5,314, while $3,228 went to Ben Winters.

Boil water alert continues RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

There is no change in a boil water advisory for thousands of Greater Vernon residents. The North Okanagan Regional District had hoped to lift a boil water alert for the Duteau Creek source Thursday, but that didn’t occur. “We had one positive test (for bacteria) so the chlorine is not doing its job,” said Arnold Badke, engineering general manager. Arnold Badke “There is some possibility of bacteria in a pipeline.” The advisory was placed on 15,000 customers Saturday after recent rain forced the creek to rise and turbidity (or cloudiness) increased. Another round of samples were taken late Thursday, but it could be some time before the results are back. “It could be in place through the weekend,” said Badke, of the boil water advisory.

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 quality is an issue, quantity increasingly isn’t for the Duteau Creek source. Upland reservoirs continue to fill because of the rain. “We are within 12,000 megalitres of being full,” said Badke. “This rain has been a God send.” NORD could move from stage two to stage one water restrictions based on reservoir levels, but Badke says a decision on that will not be made until the reservoirs are at capacity. He also points out that if the weather turns warm and consumption increases, demand for water will also climb. “We could enter stage two again quite quickly. We still need people to conserve water,” he said.

Parents concerned about pesticide use on school grounds can breathe a little easier this summer. On Tuesday, trustees voted to place a moratorium on the use of pesticides, which means no spraying on playing fields or surrounding areas throughout the Vernon School District. “We had a presentation last year asking us to do away with spraying, and we’ve had a number of letters asking us to review our policy,” said board chairman Bill Turanski. “We had started the process, but we were waiting for a recommendation from the community advisory committee for pesticide management, but they still haven’t got to a stage where they want to make a recommendation.” Instead, Turanski presented a number of options to trustees, who made the decision to vote on placing a moratorium on pesticide use until a recommendation is made by the committee. “It’s been a delicate thing, and it’s a contentious issue,” he said. “I was quite pleased the board went in that direction. So now we have a lot of time because we don’t have to make a decision until next year.”

Enderby RCMP continue to investigate a harassment case that led to the discover of a marijuana grow operation. Officers arrested a male suspect June 13 in connection with a criminal harassment investigation in the Mara Lake area. A warrant was obtained to search the suspect’s residence for evidence relating to the harassment allegations. While searching the home on June 14, police found the Gord Molendyk grow-op. “It is believed the accused was in the process of harvesting the marijuana bud from his plants,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. A total of 20 plants, yet to be harvested, and close to two pounds of harvested bud were seized along with the growing equipment. Police are continuing to investigate a possible theft of hydro services as well. The 54-year-old suspect was released on conditions for a future court date to face charges of criminal harassment, production of a controlled substance, and possession of a controlled substance

Adventures in the garden

I

f convenience foods such as TV dinners were the latest thing back in the ‘60s, the 21st century is all about food that is locally grown, fresh and preferably free of pesticides. Even back then, I thought TV dinners left something to be desired and smacked a little of food you’d find in an institution: prison or hospital, pick one. And I was lucky in that my stay-at-home mom prepared healthy food made from real ingredients. Although we were occasionally able to persuade her, for a special treat, to Katherine Mortimer buy that fabulous processed cheese that came in a tube and that you could squirt onto your cracker in a star-shaped pattern. It was probably a treat because it was so rare. Likewise, pop was something we would stock up on for birthday parties, not consumed on a daily basis. I used to love to visit my paternal grandparents, who lived in Victoria, in what was then a very rural part of Saanich. They had a small house with a huge backyard that, city kid that I was, seemed like a real farm to me, complete with vegetable garden. I loved to watch Gramps as he worked in his garden, lovingly tending it. And I loved to go out with Grandma and pick fresh peas off the vine, bringing them inside for shelling. Most of our supper (my grandparents were originally from the Prairies, so dinner was supper, and lunch was dinner) came from that garden. We knew exactly where our food came from, how it was grown, when it was planted and who picked it. So it was with a huge sense of nostalgia that I recently planted my first garden in many years. Assisted by my very enthusiastic five-year-old daughter, we planted strawberries, watermelon, peppers, tomatoes and herbs. Not only did she happily dig the hole for the plants (next year, we’ll start sooner and plant seeds indoors), she patted down the soil and stuck the little label in to remind us of what we

planted. She also said that now she could invite her friends over to pick vegetables, and that we wouldn’t need to buy them anymore. I love the idea of saving money as much as the next person, but my desire to plant produce was based more on a need to teach my daughter where her food comes from, to understand that if it doesn’t have to be shipped from thousands of kilometres away, it tastes better, is healthier, fresher and doesn’t require chemicals to keep it that way. It’s one of the reasons I love to shop at the farmers’ market, to be able to talk to the person who actually grew the chard, the carrots or the peaches I’m buying. It’s why we love to play at Davison Orchards in the summer, to take the train and check out what’s growing in the fields before buying some fresh fruit and veg to take home. Every year, as we are bombarded with more and more fabulous technology (iPad, anyone)? to make our lives easier, we seem to also have this longing for a return to simplicity, to do things the way our grandparents did them. I’m not about to give up my dishwasher and washing machine, but at the same time, as global warming rages on and our dependence on oil continues to explode (figuratively and literally), there is something a little immoral about buying fruit that required thousands of litres of jet fuel to get to our fridge. There’s a reason that community gardens are flourishing in cities and towns across the country. Having said that, I admit it’s hard to give up eating bananas and mangoes, and I haven’t found a way to grow them here. But who knows? For years, my parents have had fig trees in their Vancouver garden, transplanted from cuttings that originally came from Croatia. For now, though, my biggest dilemma will be to have my garden last until we’re ready to harvest our bounty. At our old house, we had cherry trees. We jokingly referred to our two dogs as members of the Canine Fruit Pickers Union, for their ability to jump up and bite cherries right off the branch. So with a dog completely motivated by all things vaguely edible, we have to find a way to get to the strawberries and tomatoes before he does.

The North Okanagan Regional District’s five electoral area directors are quick to defend their compensation, and that likely comes with the territory. After all, who likes to be questioned, particularly when it’s about income. But the bottom line is the directors’ annual remuneration come from the hard-earned dollars of taxpayers in their rural areas. Certainly the money going to municipal directors at NORD should also be scrutinized because they double-dip by getting paid for council duties in their individual jurisdictions. But in the case of the rural politicians, many of their constituents have been hit hard financially. Families dependent on forestry are still reeling from the turmoil that has struck that sector for years. Many small-scale farmers and meat processors have seen their income dry up because of provincial regulations. Like in the urban centres, residents of rural communities have lost their jobs due to the recession or have seen their retirement nest-egg shattered by unpredictable markets. There’s no question that being an elected official is time-consuming, particularly if you truly want to represent the interest of your constituents. There are meetings, and often that includes trips out of town. Any compensation should take into account the impact public life has on careers and families. Nobody wants our politicians to work for free. But when the electoral directors’ salaries get into the $30,000range, and higher if you are the chairman of a committee, one has to wonder how many constituents are making that these days? In the end, compensation must be fair, but instead of being defensive, the directors should recognize the perceptions out there, and extend some sympathy towards their bosses — the taxpayer.

On-the-job training is best

A

ccording to a Readers Digest survey, Mike Holmes is the second mosttrusted Canadian. Mike makes a very nice living out of exposing the work of bad contractors on his TV program. Mike started working with his father when he was six and before his was 21 had his own contracting firm. "Do It Right" is Mike's motto, even has it tattooed on his arm. "There are just too many people out there who don't know what they are doing," he says. Having been an apprentice some 60 years ago, I know what he is on about. Those five years were the most important five years of my life and on behalf of all our young people leaving school to enter the workplace, I'd like to ask a few questions: Why has the government allowed the five-year apprenticeship working in the communities with skilled tradespeople to be downgraded to a three-month, very costly, diploma course in a college (which won't guarantee a job, but it might help)? SIMPLE SOLUTIONS The allergies of some students and teachers are so severe that exposure could result in death. The schools have little defence when it comes to dealing with this issue, and the school board has yet to figure out a solution or course of action against this major health issue within our schools. Students with allergies and some members of the public are uneasy about stepping foot into A.L. Fortune School due to the possibilities of the presence of scents. This is upsetting to me. Shouldn't a school make everyone feel equal? Yes, I think they should. Everyone has the right to an education and the right to feel safe, so why do some students fear going to school? If this were your child, how would you feel? It is upsetting to be in a family with someone that has been taken to the hospital more than once due to a severe reaction. My heart dropped from my chest into my stomach and I felt so terrible because I couldn't help my loved one. Everyone can help family, friends, or even strangers, just by allowing them to have a scent-free environment, understanding that

Why, if I want to work on vehicles, do I have to travel to a town 40K away to take a course when there are at least a dozen 'state of the art' dealership/repair facilities with technicians within a few blocks of home? Why is the government spending hundreds of millions of dollars constructing colleges and duplicating the same facilities that are in existence in the local community? Also, anyone who knows anything about training knows that there is no substitute for on-the-job training. To be a good contractor,

people can die from the effects of perfume or cologne. People should be able to feel safe and not have to wonder, "If I go to school today, will I make it through the full day without having to use my puffer, Epi-pen or oxygen?" So why are kids still suffering? It doesn't have to be this way for people with allergies or sensitivities to scents. There is a very simple solution to save a person's life. Read the signs that are posted on every door of the school and listen to what they say. The signs apply to students, staff and the public that may walk through A.L. Fortune's doors. If a teacher and a first aid attendant, also with an allergy to scent, can risk her life to save another, then we as a community should be able to change one small aspect of our own lives to save the lives of others. The public, students and teachers all need to help out and make this issue well known. There are signs posted everywhere and reminders can be on websites and newsletters going out regularly. Remember that signs stating a scent-free environment apply to everyone; no one is excluded. The

a work ethic is vital. You can't buy it, or learn it in a classroom. You have to grow into it day by day. Why is it that not important anymore? We all know how valuable our youngsters are to us as families, but what about to the future and Canada? We often hear about our young people being our most precious resource. We educate them all to a good level at an estimated $100,000 each for the 10 years. That's quite an investment. Now with a good education and good work skills train-

signs do not mean that you are not allowed to smell good; they mean that in this building is a health issue to people if you do smell good. By working together, reading and obeying the signs that are posted, we can help save a life.

Tamara Clark EMS WEEK Recently we marked EMS Week, a time where EMS agencies all across Canada recognize the importance of your local EMS workers, and enhance the relationship between EMS workers and the community they proudly serve. To celebrate EMS Week in Vernon, we decided to organize a BBQ and open house at our ambulance station, located at 3011 35th Avenue. On behalf of all the paramedics working at station 337 Vernon, I wanted to express my sincere thanks to all the resi-

dents who came to our open house and made it a truly successful and enjoyable time. Despite Mother Nature being unable to make up her mind about what weather to throw at us, we had a very large turnout. People were given tours of our station and the ambulances, we were asked a myriad of questions about our profession, the equipment and medications we use, and the treatments we provide. There were children playing in the ambulance bay, balloons floating around, people sneaking just that tiny extra handful of tim bits, and countless different interactions going on between paramedics and the public. This is the first time we have organized such an event, and hopefully we can build on it in the future. I especially wish to thank all the businesses in the community that stepped up to make this event possible. It is always wonderful to have such generous support from our local businesses, which helped us to make sure that not only did people walk away happy, but with full stomachs too.

ing, they will be a potential cash cow for the government. The more highly skilled their job, the more money they will earn and the more taxes they will pay. That means even better schools, hospitals, pensions, etc. etc. Everything will be just fine! Except for the fact that our government or the business community does not have a comprehensive work training program. We could have, it's not rocket science, in fact it would be very easy to provide every school leaver with a paid job learning the career of their choice.

Lumby housing moves ahead Morning Star Staff

L o n g - a n t i c i p a te d seniors housing is moving ahead in Lumby. On Saturday, a ground-breaking ceremony was held to mark the start of construction of 16 low-income, rental housing units for seniors on Glencaird Street. “Lumby has a growing number of seniors, and these new homes will offer our seniors more access to muchneeded affordable housing options so that they can continue to live in the community they helped build,” said Mayor Kevin Acton. The federal and provincial governments are contributing $2.1 million to Monashee

opment cost charges for these homes and the Lumby and District Senior Citizens Housing Society and the Village of Lumby jointly provided the land, valued at about $300,000. LDSCHS will manage and operate the 16 apartments. “Our society values this initiative to enhance the quality of life for Lumby seniors through the construction of affordable rental homes,” said Judy Gibbs, society chairwoman. According to MP Colin Mayes, the federal government is helping people during tough economic times by providing funding for housing. “Here in Lumby, this

Vernon now has a blueprint for economic development. Council has unanimously endorsed a strategy to focus on enhancing the economy, including attracting and retaining business. “This is an excellent start, not only for Vernon, but for the regional district,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert. The focus of the document is to provide a framework for the economic development department and to identify strategic priorities and projects to proceed with. Lions Gate Consulting and city staff have been working on the strategy since last October. The report indicates that there will be a 40 per cent increase in Vernon’s population by 2028, and one in three residents will be over the age of 65. It also suggests a decline in the younger workforce and that could deter future development. Steve Nicol, with Lions Gate Consulting, says the region’s strengths include innovation and entrepre-

Board fights for rail track RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Officials hope to stall things long enough that a purchaser can be found for a rail line. The North Okanagan Regional District will write to CP Rail expressing interest in the track between Armstrong and Sicamous. “This will open the door to have the process slowed down,” said director Will Hansma. Okanagan Valley Railway stopped operating the 13-kiloWill Hansma metre, CP-owned line last summer. Hansma fears that if something isn’t done soon, time will run out and the track will be completely abandoned, negatively impacting local businesses. “The economic impact on Lumby and Vernon is just as severe as on Armstrong and Enderby,” he said. The intent of the regional district wouldn’t be to

acquire the rail line itself, but to provide the provincial government and prospective purchasers to get directly involved in trying to retain the track. “There’s no commitment of money. We’re buying ourselves time,” said director Dee Wejr. Support comes from director Mary-Jo O’Keefe. “Several businesses have stopped their expansions because of the line (not being used),” she said.

Speeding a concern Morning Star Staff

People appear to be in a hurry to get wherever there going first thing in the morning. Five RCMP officers were doing traffic enforcement on Highway 97, between Vernon and Lake Country, from 6:30 to 9:15 a.m. Wednesday, and during that time period they ticketed 47 drivers. Of the 47 tickets issued, five were for excessive speeding with the top speed being 141 km/h in the 90-kilometre/hour speed zone. “This type of enforcement, focusing on aggressive drivers along the Highway 97 corridor, will continue to be a priority for this unit,” said Sgt. Keith Ferguson, with the traffic unit. The police remind the motoring public to observe the posted speed limit, and observe all traffic laws.

“With summer holidays just around the corner the volume of traffic will increase again on our roads in the Okanagan, and we want everyone to be safe,” said Ferguson.

Residents get say on meters ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Armstrong residents opposed to having water meters installed have a chance to have their say. The city wants to borrow $437,109 of the estimated $750,000 universal water metering capital works project. The amount borrowed must be repaid within 20 years. “We now advertise the plan for two consecutive weeks, and the electorate has a month to reply,” said Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper Chris Pieper. “We would need 10 per cent of the electorate, which is 309 signatures, to register a complaint or comments, opposed to us borrowing the money.” The city’s goal is to install water meters in all remaining properties. Responses have to be in no later than 30 days after the last advertisement in The Morning Star, which is slated for June 23. Thus, the deadline day is no later than 4 p.m. July 24. To be eligible to sign against the motion, a person has to be an eligible voter in the City of Armstrong, and they must include their full name, residential address and signature. If signing as a property elector, a person must include full residential address of the Armstrong property, along with the person’s current residential address. Alternate approval forms are available at Armstrong city hall, or at www.cityofarmstrong. bc.ca.

Awards ease transition to trades JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

Ten students from Pleasant Valley Secondary School in Armstrong received scholarships to help with their Secondary School Apprenticeship (SSA) program. Each student was given $1,000 from the Industry Training Authority (ITA). The money helps students with further tuition costs as well as the purchase of equipment. Jordan Dykema, a cosmetology student who recently placed first in a skills competition at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, was among the scholarship recipients. She is currently completing her hours just outside of Ottawa. “I’m just getting some experience outside of B.C.,” said Dykema. Although she is loving her new profession, she was not always sure. “I changed my mind

every week,” she said. But in Grade 11 the Career Programs Co-ordinator from Pleasant Valley, Paul Britton, suggested she try out cosmetology through the SSA program. “It’s all Mr. Britton’s fault,” said Dykema. She is grateful to Britton and the program for steering her towards cosmetology. “I wouldn’t have even thought of it otherwise.” Dykema has 820.5 hours left to complete of her required 3600 before she heads back home. And she was pleasantly surprised to hear about the scholarship. “It was nice to see some money in my bank account,” she said. Most of it went to equipment and her car payment. The other nine students who received scholarships were Carlee England, Jacey-Lynn Findlater, Brittany Kyllo, Crystal Lesparence,

Ashley PaskiewichBanks, Eric Rindal, Danielle Stobbe, Stewart Sutherland, and Nicole Szakal. The SSA program is designed to help students transition from high school into a trade. It allows them to get work experience toward their apprenticeship as well as the high school credits they need to graduate. The criteria as well as application forms are available at www.itabc/ Page37.aspx.

News Hero award goes to Mulder again Morning Star Staff

The Armstrong Lions Club thinks Charla Mulder is a hero. Mulder, who raised a grand total of $1,643.97 in pledges for the annual Kindale Heart of Country Walk-A-Thon, was presented with the Kindale Hero award for the second year in a row. Making the presentation was Linda Werner, vice president of the Armstrong Lions Club.

They are currently getting ready for their biggest fundraiser of the year – the annual Armstrong Funtastic Ball Tournament.

Protect yourself from West Nile Morning Star Staff

North Okanagan residents are being reminded to take extra precautions against mosquito bites and West Nile virus. West Nile virus infection is a disease that primarily resides in birds, and can be spread from birds to humans by infected mosquitoes. About 20 per cent of infected people may experience mild to severe flu-like symptoms, and a small number of people (less than one per cent of those infected) may develop a serious neurological disease. The best protection against West Nile virus is to avoid mosquito bites, and reduce mosquito breeding areas. ■ Here are some things you can do to protect yourself from West Nile virus: ■ Use mosquito repellent - Apply mosquito repellent to areas of exposed skin. Check the product label for

instructions on proper use. ■ Repellents containing DEET are safe if the label precautions are followed. DEET-free products are available, but may not provide as long-lasting protection. View the HealthFile on DEET (link below) for guidelines on how frequently you should apply repellant, as recommendations change depending on age. ■ Wear protective clothing - Avoid dark clothing, as it tends to attract mosquitoes. If you are in an area with lots of mosquitoes, wear loose fitting, full-length pants and a long-sleeved shirt to keep mosquitoes from biting. ■ Mosquitoes that can carry WNv are most active at dusk and at dawn. Avoid using floral fragrances such as perfumes, soaps, hair care products, and lotions. ■ Install mosquito screens on windows - Consider staying

indoors between dusk and dawn and in the early evening. ■ Prevent mosquito breeding around your home -Anything that can hold water is a likely mosquito breeding area. Try to identify and remove these areas on your property. ■ A few things to do include: empty saucers under flowerpots; change water in bird baths twice a week; unclog rain gutters; drain tarps, tires, and other debris where rain water may collect; and install a pump in ornamental ponds or stock them with fish. ■ Stagnant backyard pools can be a big source of mosquitoes and should be maintained regularly to prevent mosquito growth. The B.C. Centre for Disease Control conducts a surveillance program for West Nile virus which includes testing of dead birds in the corvid family: crows, ravens, magpies and jays.

These birds are more likely than others to die from West Nile virus. It also includes trapping and testing of mosquitoes from numerous sites in the province. For more information, go to www.interiorhealth.ca or www. bccdc.ca/westnile.

Rouault smart choice for Pack KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Giant wingspan. Studies the game like he's doing a thesis. Scores and rebounds in clutch situations. Brett Rouault brings the whole package and a little more to the basketball court. The Thompson Rivers University (TRU) WolfPack will welcome his hoop show next year. The 6-foot-4 forward, who guided the Fulton Maroons to the bronze medal at the B.C. Senior AA Boys Basketball Championships in Kamloops last March, follows Brett Parker of Langley's Walnut Grove Gators as a major high school recruit for TRU (3-15 last year). “I’m very excited to be part of a CIS program and to have the opportunity to improve as an athlete as well as student,” said Rouault, who will enter the Bachelor of Science program. “Hopefully, I can play for them right away.” Rouault played just one season for Fulton after his family moved from Edmonton, where he starred for the Jasper Place Rebels and Team Alberta. Fulton head coach Dale Olson loved what he got from the 17-year-

old, who led the Maroons with 22.5 points and seven rebounds a game. "He's got good athleticism and his basketball IQ is huge," said Olson. "He's sixfour, but he plays six-six, six-seven because he deflects passes on defence all the time. His hands are always moving. He's a player and he's made for the CIS." Rouault drained the first 17 points in his school's semifinal game at the provincials and made the tournament all-star team, with TRU officials watching. “He scored some big points when I scouted him at the 2010 B.C. AA High School Championships,” said WolfPack head coach Scott Clark. "He is an outstanding individual. Not only is he athletic but an 'A' student. He is the type of person we want to attract in our efforts to build a successful program.” The 190-pound Rouault becomes the third Maroon to join the WolfPack: following in the footsteps of Travis Beck (2009-10) and Charles Barton (2008-09). “I am a strong shooter, who has had no problems with taking the ball inside,” Rouault said about his play. “I believe if that I work hard enough, I can give almost

everyone problems with my defensive play.” Rouault is excited about playing for new WolfPack coach Clark, who coached the SFU Clansmen for 15 years, making the playoffs 10 times. “It’s exciting to play for a coach who has had so much success in the CIS already. I am looking forward to learning from him and improving my game.” Added Clark: “He has nothing but upside. He scores from a variety of different areas. Once he matures physically, he should be an integral part of our future. First though, he’ll need to learn our system.” Rouault, who turns 18 Aug. 27, was also looking at both Alberta and UBC-O. “TRU is close to my family and they showed the most interest in me as a player. And I love the almost brand new facilities.” Olson expects Rouault to succeed in both hoops and life. "He's extremely smart. He wants to be a doctor so he'll get in five years there and then go to med school. I think he's going to have a good CIS career." Rouault, an NBA Lakers fan, will spend the summer training and working for the family business (Lakeside Docks & Lifts).

Lazar rates top B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame honours KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Curtis Lazar wrote his math final Thursday to close out his Grade 9 year at George Elliot Secondary School. The rest of his summer will entail meeting with the Edmonton Oil Kings’ training staff and following their orders, going to a dryland camp in Los Angeles and then attending a basic hockey fantasy weekend in Penticton. Lazar, a Vernon resident, is the 2010 winner of the Hockey Now/B.C. Hockey Hall of Fame Minor Hockey Player Achievement PHOTO SUBMITTED Award. The honour is handed out Vernon’s Curtis Lazar (right) plays in the Edmonton Oil Kings’ spring camp. annually to a B.C. Amateur Hockey Association player who best exem- Seabrook and Shea Weber.

Events Centre, and then play the charity game with some NHLers,” The Oil Kings selected Lazar next day in a summer classic with said Lazar, 15. “That’s probably with the second overall pick in NHLers like Duncan Keith, Brent what I’m most excited about.” the Western Hockey League

Bantam Draft. Lazar led POE to six tournament titles. At two of the most prestigious Bantam tournaments in Canada – the Kamloops International Bantam Tournament and St. Albert’s John Reid Memorial Tournament – he was named top forward and tournament MVP. Lazar grew up playing for the Vernon Minor Hockey Association before playing his two Bantam seasons with Pursuit. He maintained a 4.0 GPA at George Elliot. Along with his teammates, Lazar has volunteered in the community by doing yard work, preparing food to be sent to third-world countries, and teaching young children to skate. His coaches and teachers characterize him as having extraordinary character, humility, and work ethic. “It’s nice to be recognized for my off-ice achievements,” said Lazar. “My coaches in Salmon Arm, Vernon and at Pursuit have all taught me about values, and

my family (Dave and Karen Lazar) have been huge. Without them, none of this would be possible. Them shelling out the money so I could play for Pursuit was huge. My grandparents have also supported my hockey financially.” Next season, Lazar will play for Penticton’s Okanagan Hockey Academy on the Major Midget prep team, coached by former NHLers Robert Dirk and Dixon Ward. Lazar turns 16 on Feb. 2. The 5-foot-10, 170-pounder played in the Oil Kings’ spring camp a few weeks ago. “It was a lot of fun. I thought I was pretty big in Bantam, but when I played against all those Dub (WHL) kids, I was small. I’ll be working on improving my speed and upper-body strength so when the bigger guys hit me, I can stay on my feet.” The Hall of Fame inductees are Trevor Linden, Dallas Drake, Bruce Hamilton, and Frank Lento.

Sports Cory street smart

Checkers avenge lone loss

ROY CLISSOLD For the Morning Star

If the old saying “rubbing is racing” is true, then there was a lot of racing at MotoPlex Speedway Saturday night. The biggest rubber of the night had to be the 60-lap A&W street stocks, with Cory MacGivern of Keremeos, in his #14 Lordco Monte Carlo, taking the checkered flag. The start of the race was an inverted field, with the faster cars at the back of the pack. Right at the start, the #99 Aaron’s Dream Machine, driven by Summerland’s Sarah Cornett-Ching, came together with Lumby’s Dustin Smith in his #54 Monte Carlo. It didn’t take long for the faster cars to start bumping their way to the front. Within a few laps, last year’s A&W street stock champion, (Super) Dave Haworth of Winfield, came together with Smith in turn three and the contact sent Haworth’s #89 Monte Carlo into the infield grass. Haworth recovered and began charging his way to the front. Cole Langlois, a former cart driver from Vernon, had his #2 Door Doctor Monte Carlo forced into the wall in turn two, retiring him for the night.

Morning Star Staff

Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers got revenge for their only loss of the season Tuesday night, scoring in the 42nd minute to defeat Salmon Arm TED United 2-1 at Marshall Field #3. The pub crew improved to 7-1 for a share of first place with the Little Tex Outlaws in the North Okanagan Women's Soccer Association Competitive Division. United dropped to 4-3. Stephanie Wilson opened the scoring in the first half on a 20-yard blast from the top of the box, only to have Salmon Arm equalize 10 minutes later. Leah Frye then dropped the ball back to Jacquie Hansen whose cross was headed by Kim Teichman over Alyssa Armstrong two minutes into the half. Salmon Arm had numerous chances to tie it, but Lisa Arrotta shut the door. The defensive line of Bobbi Cormier, Dana Reid, Cindy Worth and Irene Arrotta held strong. Both keepers made a series of tremendous saves as the Checkers gang sent Maddie Kaneda off to Ottawa with a win. Lady of the Match Ally Dodds ran miles keeping Jill Flockhart under check all game. Little Tex used a hat trick from University of Gonzaga Bulldog Emma Dolcetti in an 8-2 shelling of the AF Blazers at Marshall #1. Monica Neilson (2), University of Alabama-Huntsville Charger Lindsay Lee, Christine Fraser and Kayla Palfrey rounded out the Little Tex offence. Jessa Joles was her usual strong presence in the middle. Dolcetti unleashed several shots on goal and went hard to the net. Neilson set up the forwards for many scoring opportunities with beautiful crosses from the outside. Jordan Mercer was strong at the back with support from Kelsey Krahn, Jenn Knopp, Hannah Ross and Stacey Cover. Gineil Ferrier was solid in net. Delinah Erbenich opened the scoring for the Blazers with Ally Cummings earning the assist. Carissa Morneau put the Blazers up 2-1 after collecting a fumble by Ferrier. Blazers keeper Katie Hatten stopped a penalty shot before Little Tex scored to equalize before the half. In Masters play, the Tillicum Controllers brushed back Monashee's 3-1 at Marshall Field #4. Corrine McWhinney started the scoring early with a breakaway from centre in the first half. New recruit Amy Shupe followed up with a beautiful one-touch to the back of the net off of a corner from McWhinney. In the second half, McWhinney netted her second goal assisted by Shaun Yargeau and Shupe. Midfielders Sara Glen and Sena Bishop were relentless in advancing the ball towards Monashee's end. The Vernon Square Liquor Store United bottled up the host Salmon Arm Merlot 2-1. Char McNaught (playing through illness while on antibiotics) found the ball and sent in a dilly of a shot that fooled the keeper. Andrea Zubot supplied the second

Holly Flinkman was on fire working both sides of the midfield creating solid crosses with lots of chatter. In her last game of the 2010 season due to upcoming back surgery, Karen Benn played with heart and soul keeping the midfield defence zone neat and clean. "We will miss her play, her humour and her appies," said United veteran Shelly Johnston. United got stellar defensive play from Kim Cooper, Penney Crebo-Dolman, Teresa Collins and Pat Neilson. Injured Lena Dean did what she could speeding up and down the forward line with midfield help from Shelley Henry and Carla Gibson. Goplen’s Drillers won their fifth game of the season, beating the host Shuswap Kaos 4-1 in Salmon Arm. The 5-0-2 Drillers got two goals from Tina Garrison, her first the result of a sweet through pass from midfielder Kelly Megyesi. Harrison calmly took the pass and beat a few defenders and then the keeper. Tralee Mazu, moving up from her normal fullback spot to midfield, put the Drillers up 2-0 with her first goal of the season. Mazu picked up a Kaos defender clearing attempt at the top of the 18-yard line and volleyed it over the keeper’s outstretched hands. Kaos made the game close just before half with a goal, however, only a few minutes into the second half, Garrison took a World Cup-throw from Glenda Hatten on the wing. Garrison first-timed the ball into the back of Kaos’ net. Hatten then rounded out the Drillers’ scoring with one of her strong crosses from the wing. Driller keeper Shawn Phillips enjoyed a strong game, coming out to challenge the aggressive Kaos players on numerous occasions. The Okanagan Impact, not ones to sit on

Reimer rolls downhill gold Morning Star Staff

Vancouver’s Kevin Reimer was simply unstoppable as he stormed to victory at the Vernon DH/ IGSA North American Championships Sunday on Middleton Mountain. The reigning IGSA (International Gravity Sports) downhill skateboard world champion was never seriously pressured as he rolled win after win in each of his five qualifying heats. In the final, he was followed to the line by Brazilian Douglas Silva. Vernon’s Zen Shikaze and Max Erwin rounded out the final, finishing

in third and fourth respectively. Event organizer Mischo Erban ranked sixth, and Matt Rae, also of Vernon, was 11th. In the first semifinal, Reimer and Erwin simply rode away from Erban and Australian Jackson Shapiera to advance to the final. Silva and Shikaze finished ahead of Nick Breton and George Mackenzie, both of Calgary, in the second semi. There were 78 downhill competitors racing in front of nearly 2,000 spectators under sunny weekend weather.

A field of nearly 500 North American BMXers from made for a great show at the Cactus Classic ABA BMX National Series last weekend at the McArthur Island facility in Kamloops. Among them was a cohort of 32 Vernon BMX Club riders, competing in the 32 degree heat. Racing in 8 Novice, Beck Corkle claimed his first-ever national win. Ian Knopf also scored big, picking up sponsorship from Team Extreme and taking home a combined total of five gold medals in two classes. Also scoring firsts over the weekend were Dawson Luchene (8 Intermediate), Arleigh Hill, Gavin Medema, Shylo Orchard, Tanner Brown and Xavier Bitz. Riding to second-place finishes were Chris Spence, Tyler Riva, Richard Wood, Erik Urquhart and Nathan Martin. Jennifer Bitz wowed the crowd after crashing Saturday and still managing to take home a solid

With only a few laps remaining, Thor Gorseth of Merritt also hit the turn two wall and had to be removed from the track. MacGivern was followed by Tim Comeau of Calgary, who always manages to keep his nose clean in his #50 Chevy. Comeau started racing just two years ago, competing in the popular King of the Hill series at the Motoplex. Another former A&W street stock champion, Les Hein placed third in his Vernon-based black Sun FM Monte Carlo. Kyle Day of Kelowna and Dustin Smith rounded out the top five finishers. In the Praxair Okanagan Dwarf Car series, Vernon’s Janice Juell led the first six laps of the fifteen-lap final which was eventually won by Ron Brewer of Kelowna. Brewer was followed by Rick Taylor of Penticton and Jeff Miller of Lavington in second and third respectively. Two of the dwarf cars were taken out of action in an earlier heat race in a multi-car pileup at corner two. Matt Stephenson, riding his #1 Ridge Racing Impala SS, took the

checkered flag in the 50-lap feature event, the West Coast Sportsman Series cars. The Kaledon native was followed closely by the #12 Denny’s/Accent Homes Impala SS of Kalvin Loudon of Kelowna. Another Kelowna driver, Don Nickel, placed third driving his Polar Spas Impala. Dustin Lengert of Penticton and Kevin Van Kalkeren of Osoyoos rounded out the top five finishers. The Sportsman race featured another inverted start, and CornettChing, driving her #99 Cadillac CTS Aaron’s Dream Machine, raced out front from the pole position and opened up a sizeable five-car lead before her Cadillac developed handling problems. She managed to hang onto a sixth-place finish. The King of the Hill competition was won by Matt Lloyd of Salmon Arm, driving a Split Decision Motorsports Nissan Pulsar. A ‘75 Buick Skylark equipped with fat tires and nitrous for drag racing made it to the semifinal race, but exited turn four out of control and smacked into the infield wall along the front straight.

The Vernon Storm went 1-2 at the Shooting Stars Club Basketball Tournament last weekend in Calgary. In their opener, the Storm fell 58-55 to the Edmonton Grads in a back-and-forth game. Edmonton made a push to go ahead by 14 points early in the third quarter, but Vernon kept chipping away until they took a 55-51 lead with two minutes to go. The Grads then went on a 7-0 run to pull out the win. Top scorers were Emily Kanester (25 points) and Kailee Streichert (10 points), both of Vernon Secondary. The Storm rebounded by shading the Calgary Storm 53-52. Down by five at the break, Vernon rallied in the third with Brittney Walton canning a clutch threepointer to give the Storm a seven-point lead going into the final quarter. Calgary surged late to take a four-point lead with three minutes to go, but Streichert hit a jump shot from the corner with 15 seconds left to tie the game at 52-52. Kanester was then fouled collecting a defensive rebound and she went 1-for-2 on the charity stripe to ice the game. “This was a very exciting game to be a part of,” said Storm coach Bobby Mitchell. “Mental toughness was the key as we played at 8:30 a.m. after the late game the night before. We came out quite strong and used our press to create the tempo we wanted.” A trio of VSS Panthers led the attack – Bobbie Jones (13 points), Walton (11 points, four rebounds) and Kanester (11 points, five rebounds). The Storm bowed 76-46 to the Calgary Locomotives in their final game. Top scorers were Kanester (11 points) and Walton (10 points and four rebounds).

Third Annual Chris Huculak Benefit

Musical interests abound Morning Star Staff

An intrepid explorer, Shane Philip has discovered a style of music without borders. And, although he loosely refers to his style as west coast island rhythms, it is by no means isolated in a sea of genres. The self-taught musician, plays seven instruments - usually at the same time, including the Australian didgeridoo, African djembe and Hawaiian Weissenborn guitar. “I have no limitations and that’s what keeps it really exciting for me,” he said. Philip will be at Lorenzo’s Cafe in Ashton Creek June 25. Sometimes described as a mixture between folk, reggae and even electronica, the solo artist’s music is, impossible to pigeonhole. “I have a collaboration of global fusion, if you will, within my set and with the gear I use,” he said. Philip’s music captures the spirit of his culturally and artistically diverse style and when played live has the power to possess, with which he himself is so taken. “When people are moving I can watch them and they influence me to make certain sounds

Dinwoodie rounds up new CD Morning Star Staff

With a brand new CD of original songs, Rob Dinwoodie is ready for another exciting summer season of entertainment at the popular Cowboy Dinner Show at O’Keefe Ranch. Playing to a soldout audience in the pavilion every Friday night last year became the norm for the local singer/songwriter who has become passionate about sharing the history of the B.C. west through the songs that he writes. Hot off the press is his new CD Hands Up - Ballad of Billy Miner, a compilation of songs that Dinwoodie has written this past year. Working with historian, author and cowboy poet Ken Mather, Rob, his wife Jocelyne and multi-talented musician Dixon Zalit, will once again provide an exciting, fun filled evening of music, song, storytelling and cowboy poetry. “Ken and I have this passion to share a bit of the history that many folks don’t know and yet has been instrumental in developing the fabric of the community and province we call home,” said Dinwoodie. Notorious characters like Billy Miner who coined the term

Rob Dinwoodie (left) and Dixon Zalit are preparing for the return of the Cowboy Dinner Show at O’Keefe Ranch. “Hands Up,” Catherine Schubert who had the first white baby born in the Interior and the BX Express, which brought most of the gold out of the Cariboo, are all songs and stories that folks can enjoy this summer. Starting July 2 and running every Friday until the end of August, the Cowboy Dinner Show promises to be an entertaining evening for the entire family. The CD Hands Up was produced at The Groove studio in Vernon and has a mix of ballads and songs like Queen of Diamonds, Home, and

Coyote Moon, a song that Dinwoodie calls cowboy jazz. The CD showcases the talent of Zalit who plays mandolin on songs like Hands Up, and swing guitar on Coyote Moon, and Dancing on a Saturday Night. “Jimmy McDonnell is a song I wrote to honour a local cutting horse trainer who has since crossed the Great Divide,” said Dinwoodie.

“I had a lot of fun writing the songs and recording the album. Jon Buller, worship pastor from Vernon Alliance Church produced the album and provided some amazing harmonies and ideas for the recording.” During the Cowboy Dinner Show, Mather provides ranching history and the humour of cowboy poetry.

At a glance, it may appear that McLachlan is staying in her comfort zone on Laws of Illusion with her wistful love-lorn songs but there’s nothing trite being expressed here and no clichés being exploited either in subject matter or recording techniques. If the record sounds like easy listening, it’s in a style that McLachlan invented or perfected and she expresses herself honestly and clearly.

Land sale sparks history JENNIFER SMITH Black Press

Land sold to UBC Okanagan to form a giant endowment territory for the Kelowna campus is part of the once-controversial plot owned by the Tutt family, known as the Tutt Ranch. In the late 90s, the city threatened to expropriate a portion of the university’s new playground to make room for expansion needs of the dump. The Tutt family and the City of Kelowna waged a public battle over the valley, its grassy meadows and wetlands. It took over a decade for the city to finally secure ownership. Asked about the purchase this week, city real estate director Doug Gilchrist confirmed the municipality eventually did shake hands on an arrangement — though only after the family put the property up for sale. “We bought the land at market value through an amicable purchase and sold it the same way,” said Gilchrist. City manager Ron Mattiussi explained a rancher had come to the city in the meantime looking to revive an old subdivision on the property but the deal didn’t go through. The Mission Group development company assembled a plan to build a new semi-rural neighbourhood in the north Glenmore area, adjacent to the Yaletown development and kitty-corner to the city landfill. Their success was contingent on the Agricultural Land Commission agreeing to release the land from the Agricultural Land Reserve. When the plans came before the ALC, the commissioners disagreed that the residential development was the best use of the farmland, nixing the neighbourhood and leaving the developer with a vast expanse of unusable land. The city was offered a chance to purchase it and opted to buy the 420-acre parcel for $12,302,000 in an effort to secure a road corridor through to Glenmore and try and protect the sensitive environment around

Robert Lake, a rare alkaline riparian area. The deal went through in October 2006 and the land sat vacant. A couple of years later, UBCO Board of Governors chairman Brad Bennett was out walking his dog when he bumped into Mayor Sharon Shepherd, and he began nudging her towards creating an endowment area similar to UBC Vancouver’s forested expanse. Last week, as one of his

last acts as board chairman, Bennett announced the municipality had sold the university 256 acres to allow for expansion of the young campus at some undefined point in the future; the municipality itself kept 156 acres to use for the city’s own future expansion needs. The land sold to UBCO includes 256 acres on 19 lots sold to the university for $8.78 million or roughly $34,296 an acre.

again. The instructors have been fabulous. Once it was observed (in the first course) that I had that ‘deer-in-theheadlight-look’ of raw fear and panic, they worked with me to alleviate the angst. With their encouragement, I learned some helpful techniques. To say that I have been humbled and enriched by the experience would be an understatement. My brain was stretched and the rhythm of learning and I became one. It’s never too late to begin your dream journey. Chase after your joy

in whatever situation you might be in. Don’t settle for anything that does not create this positive state. Bliss.

An old arrangement in which you were once involved could be resurrected in the year ahead. Although you might not have been able to keep it together previously, you will have learned things that could make it work this time around.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Don’t expect to benefit from anything another gets, because that may only disappoint you. Even if you manage to wiggle into his/ her arrangement, you aren’t likely to get much from it.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Although there are likely to be a number of disruptions in your domestic affairs, if you keep your wits about you, you should be able to handle them well. If you don’t, it could mean trouble.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Having an open mind and a nonjudgmental attitude will help you a lot in getting along with others. Conversely, being harsh or dictatorial can drive the same people away. Choose wisely.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) An arrangement you recently established might not have all the potential you thought it did. However, that does not mean it is dead in the water. Use your head and make it work.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) The larger the game plan, the better you usually like it. However, at this time it behooves you to move slowly, taking only one step at a time. You’re going to need time to readjust each undertaking.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Those larger than usual returns you hoped for won’t happen simply by wiggling your nose. If you study the matter carefully and move cautiously forward, there’s a good chance you can realize some gains. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) That social contact you thought would do you some good might not be of much help. Depend on yourself, as always, and you can make things come out okay. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It’s not that you aren’t willing to work hard for what you get, it’s just that you could use a bit of help from time to time from Lady Luck. Fortunately, you still can reap well from doing excellent work. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It might be easy to be negative about something you’d like to do that circumstances are preventing you from doing, but that won’t help. Keep plugging forward and your hopes will be realized. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Continue to keep your eyes peeled for any unique developments that could have a beneficial effect on your work, because they are out there. However, vigilance is essential. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do not settle for or expect things to be handed to you on a silver platter. A healthy dose of happiness is waiting from the work you do and the effort you put into things that are important to you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Your rabbit’s foot isn’t thumping out too many good vibes today, so just because you think you are lucky, it doesn’t necessarily make you so. When all else fails, use logic.

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

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Og Mandino, an author born in Italy but who lived most of his life in the United States, said, “Failure will never overtake me if my determination to succeed is strong enough.” That is a good thought for everyone to keep in mind. In this deal, though, declarer is doomed to failure if a defender’s determination is strong enough. How can East-West overtake declarer in the race to the finish line in three no-trump? Remember, do not worry about a weak suit when contemplating no-trump (unless an opponent has bid that suit). Your partner is supposed to have you covered. Yes, occasionally he won’t and you will go

down, but that will be a rare occurrence. You would lose many more points than you would gain if, for example, with a hand like North’s, you steer your partnership into a club contract. (Note that five clubs has no chance and it takes careful defense to defeat three no-trump.) West leads the diamond five, fourth-highest from his longest and strongest. East wins with his ace (third hand high) and returns the queen. Now is West’s big moment. He must overtake with his king; otherwise, failure will overtake him. Notice that with dummy’s nine and 10 falling, West can use his eight-seven combination to drive out South’s jack. Then,

when West gets back in with his club ace, he can cash the rest of his diamonds. The defenders take four diamonds and one club. But if West plays low on the second diamond, greedily hoping that East has a third diamond, the contract can no longer be overtaken.

Don and Dianne Underhill with the 1957 Ford Fairlane like the one they had when they eloped in 1962. The car will be in the Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Car Show Sunday at the Village Green Mall parking lot.

Vintage cars driving up for show CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Don and Dianne Underhill smile at each other as they talk about the 1957 Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner they restored together. The car is like the one they had when they eloped to Coeur dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Alene, Idaho, in 1962. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The car was drivable when I bought it but it was the wrong colour. We put everything back together to the original specs or reproduction, including the upholstery and rechroming and I did all the mechanical work,â&#x20AC;? said Don, who likes the fact that the car has a rare, retractable roof and was made only in 1957, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;58 and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;59. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I saw the Fairlane at a wedding and asked to buy it. I chased that car for two years, arguing about the price. Then I heard it was in Falkland and I just stopped my logging truck with a load of logs by the side of the road and went and bought the car. My son drove it home,â&#x20AC;? said Don. The car will be in the Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Car Show sponsored by the North Okanagan Chapter of the Vintage Car Club of Canada along with a variety of vintage and classic cars from clubs around the area, including a 1929 Ford Model A and a 1958 Edsel. The difference between vintage and collector cars is in the licensing. A vintage licence means the car can be driven only to car shows, while the collector plates (25 years or older) allow the car to be driven for pleasure. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The shows are so much fun. We enjoy the people we meet and seeing what they have done with their cars. You never know what you are going to see at a show. It takes you back to your childhood or what you were doing when the car

Rear view of the classic car restored by the Underhills was new. People really like to reminisce,â&#x20AC;? said Dianne. Don has also restored a 1962 Oldsmobile convertible and is working on a 1972 Pontiac. And heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still hoping to find another retractible-roof Ford Fairlane. The 16th Annual Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Car Show takes place Sunday at the Village Green Mall parking lot from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. with registration from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The show features antique, vintage and classic cars, as well as trucks and custom vehicles. There will be music and food available. Admission is by donation. For more information, call Don at 250-549-8469 or Gary at 250-558-5304.

Time for parents to stop helping

D

ear Annie: I am 32 and the youngest of three children. My parents have always been generous — refinancing our homes, sending each of us to the college of our choice, as well as graduate schools, and offering financial help. All of us are now married with children of our own, and my parents still help us out. Mom and Dad have no hope of retiring anytime soon. While we are all extremely grateful, where does it end? I don’t begrudge my parents how they spend their money, but I worry that they are burdening themselves too much and can’t say “no.” There also seems to be some sibling rivalry developing. Does one child deserve more because she has more children and a lower salary? How about when my wife lost her job? Or when my nephew needed a car? We are all extremely close, and I hate to

He says he doesn’t inhale so he can’t get addicted or develop gum cancer. How can I get him to stop? Can he get some sort of cancer by smoking pipes? — Concerned Kid in Kansas Dear Kansas:

According to the American Cancer Society, pipe smokers have an increased risk of heart disease, stroke and chronic lung disease, along with dying from cancers of the lung, throat, esophagus, larynx, pancreas, and colon and rectum. However, you cannot stop your father from puffing away if he refuses. Give him the information, tell him you love him, and then try to steer clear when he’s smoking.

Working to make a difference CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Caring comes naturally to Angela Yablonski; she helped her mother raise her two younger brothers and was always the one who was there when friends needed her. She worked teaching music to children then bought Curves, a women’s exercise club, first in Mackenzie, then in Vernon. “I like being able to help women reach their goals and the confidence they gain and where that confidence takes them,” she said. She gives the women in her clubs a chance to get involved in the community in a variety of charities but there is one that is especially dear to her heart. “I heard a pastor speaking about building an orphanage in Africa and I knew that it was something we could take on to make a difference in the world. We started raising money for a feeding centre in Musana, a village in Zimbabwe. In 2007, I took a team of 12 women and two men to build the centre. The people there are not used to seeing women taking charge but they were very appreciative

ents died of AIDS or malaria. Many are working at whatever they can do from the time they are young. She started to raise money again and in April and May of this year went with two others from Vernon

to build a dormitory for 32 children. “We helped mix the mortar and lay the bricks. The good ladies here raised that money so the children can have a safe place to live, have

Haugen Day raises $31,500 Morning Star Staff

The combined efforts of the Healthcare Auxiliary, Shepherd’s Hardware, Askew’s, Valley Auction, local artists, Edna Luxton, and Haugen Society members and volunteers combined to beat the miserable weather May 29. All participants gave a great show of support for keeping primary healthcare in Armstrong and Spallumcheen and keeping the community healthy in both spirit

and business. Society secretary-treasurer Tom Nordstrom felt confident in announcing the amount raised, with some bills still to pay. “We also had three additional pledges of $1,000 each from the Oddfellows, the Legion, and a private individual, and these are not included in the above total,” he said. Society spokesman Nick Watkins said the society is most pleased with the increasing

adequate meals and go to school and all it costs is $500 a month,” she said. “We had a birthday party for the children when we were there — the first for them — and had cake and presents. They loved the soccer balls. We are working directly with people in the village to maintain the project and we hope to go back.” When Yablonski does go back, it will be with funds for another project — to buy text books and library books for a school. “This is all so doable. It’s not a lot of money. We raised $24,000 for the orphanage and it was mostly by small donations. We can get books for the school for $500. I hope that some school classes and businesses might take this amazing opportunity. “It’s so rewarding for us here at Curves to know we’re making a difference. We talk about it every day. If we step through the doors that are open to us then we allow amazing things to happen.” For more information see www.zimbabweproject.com.

It’s hardly surprising that Taylor recognizes this nefarious ideology, since she espoused it for four years in the Campbell government. One of her last moves as finance minister was to phase out the corporate capital tax.

Lekstrom wrote. Right you are, Blair. Taylor couldn’t have said it better. This must be why you supported the HST in the cabinet, the B.C. Liberal caucus and then in a series of votes in the house. Alas, Lekstrom writes, “I have reached the point where my beliefs and values no longer align with my government.” Which beliefs would those be, Blair? The ones on the record or the ones recently developed in the coffee shops and car dealerships of Dawson Creek? It’s no secret that the HST is daunting for regions near Alberta. It’s no coincidence that East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett was quickly promoted to the suddenly vacant energy portfolio.

in the HST saga. Asked about another new party rising in B.C., he noted that anti-HST organizer Chris Delaney has had three runs at that. The most recent was the B.C. Conservatives, the only party in 2009 to endorse the HST. Lekstrom’s latest brainwave, presented at last week’s cabinet meeting as his price for staying on, was a six-month time-out for the HST. Again, duh. The federal deal is done. The PST is gone. Where would we find the billion dollars, Blair? One Vancouver paper played up Lekstrom’s maverick image, with the obligatory Harley photo and a headline proclaiming him “Rebel With a Cause.” I think Tom Petty was closer. A rebel without a clue.

Premier Gordon Campbell and Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid unveiled details of the all-day kindergarten program Monday with plans to include 133 modular classrooms that can be dismantled and moved as needed. The first phase of the program will provide space for 40,000 students, about half of the five-year-old children in the province. The $144 million budget for this year includes additions to 21 schools in the Lower Mainland, Capital Regional District, Campbell River and Central Okanagan. With enrolment falling in most districts, there is pressure to reduce costs. The expansion of kindergarten is expected to be completed for the 2011 school year, resulting in the reopening of at least one closed primary school and conversion of vacant classrooms to play-based kindergarten spaces. The expansion includes the following: s#ENTRAL/KANAGANMODULARSATNINESCHOOLS eight additional classrooms at one school, and reopening of Anne McClymont Primary. s#HILLIWACKTHREEMODULARSATTHREESCHOOLS s!BBOTSOFRDTHREEMODULARSATTHREESCHOOLS s,ANGLEYONEMODULAR ONENEWSCHOOLWITH classrooms s 3URREY  MODULARS AT  SCHOOLS SIX SCHOOL additions totalling 32 permanent classrooms s2ICHMONDMODULARSATSEVENSCHOOLS ONE school expansion with four permanent classrooms s6ANCOUVERFIVEMODULARSATFIVESCHOOLS THREE expansions adding six permanent classrooms s .EW 7ESTMINSTER NINE MODULARS AT FIVE schools s "URNABY FIVE MODULARS AT FOUR SCHOOLS ONE expansion adding eight permanent classrooms s -APLE 2IDGE 0ITT -EADOWS TWO MODULARS AT two schools s #OQUITLAM  MODULARS AT NINE SCHOOLS TWO expansions adding eight permanent classrooms s 0EACE 2IVER .ORTH TWO MODULARS AT TWO schools, eight classrooms included in new Enerplex IN&ORT3T*OHN s 3OOKE EIGHT MODULARS AT SIX SCHOOLS FOUR expansions adding 19 permanent classrooms s /KANAGAN 3KAHA THREE MODULARS AT TWO schools s#OMOX6ALLEYEIGHTMODULARSATFIVESCHOOLS s#AMPBELL2IVERNINEMODULARSATFIVESCHOOLS one expansion adding two permanent classrooms s#OWICHAN6ALLEYSIXMODULARSATFIVESCHOOLS

P

The lines are drawn, but for the life of me I cannot fathom the logic of those opposing the elimination of this costly long-gun registry.

The long-gun registry has proven to be a costly, ineffective way to reduce guns on our streets. I believe that law enforcement is the way to reduce guns and gangs. Police can still know who has a firearm license and access where that person lives. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people.

With the money saved by eliminating the long-gun registry more focus can be spent on investigating people with mental health issues or criminal records. These people should not be allowed to hold a firearm license. Our government will continue to forward Bill C-391 to eliminate the long-gun registry. We will commit the money saved for hiring more front-line police officers so that our streets will be safer for all Canadian citizens. The real question for those wanting to

Task force checks species protection Morning Star Staff

A task force has been formed to look at continued protection and recovery of species at risk in British Columbia. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are seeking advice on whether changes to the existing regulatory framework in B.C. are required to meet ecological and socio-economic objectives,â&#x20AC;? said Environment Minister Barry Penner. The provincial government committed in the August 2009 speech from the throne to form a species at risk task force to provide recommendations to the government on defining a new vision with an overarching measurable outcome that British Columbians can work together to achieve within the next decade, including: â&#x2013; Defining Vision, Principles and Outcomes: Where should our conservation efforts be focused, what principles should guide future development of a species at risk program in B.C., and what are the measurable outcomes that best address the fundamental threats to biodiversity in B.C. and help us achieve our vision? â&#x2013;  Environmental Management: In light of climate change and multiple development demands, what management methods need to be advanced to meet our conservation targets? â&#x2013;  Private Land Stewardship: How do we advance private land stewardship and conserve species and ecosystems at risk on private land in B.C. while respecting the interests of taxpayers? The 10 members of the task force were selected to reflect a range of regions, backgrounds and sectors. They will be led by Bruce Fraser, past chair of the B.C. Forest Practices Board. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our job as a task force is to formulate advice on how to advance our provincial effectiveness in dealing with species at risk,â&#x20AC;? said Fraser. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is hardly a

more complex environmental task than to weave our human economy into the ecosystems of the province

without damaging our biodiversity or increasing the toll on our rich species endowment. I hope the work of the

group will provide some practical ideas for consideration by government.â&#x20AC;? The task force will

make recommendations to the cabinet committee on environment and land use by the end of December.

Beefing up ranch sector

J

une 2 was declared the first ever B.C. Beef Day, a celebration of the cattlemen and cattlewomen who have been breeding and raising some of the finest animals in the world for more than 100 years. It would be hard to imagine British Columbia’s history without ranching. For decades, ranching gave life to entire communities in rural B.C. Today these cities and towns continue to reflect the values all British Columbians share: hard work, integrity and innovation. Ranching is a vital part of rural agriculture in our communities and we need to support our producers and pay tribute to the hard work done in this important sector of the economy. Ranching is also a

large contributor to the provincial economy. The cattle industry in B.C. not only supports many rural communities, it provides jobs for workers in related industries, such as veterinary medicine, equipment sales and feed businesses. More than 4,000 B.C. ranches contribute more than $250 million to the provincial economy. I commend the thousands of ranchers in B.C. who adapt well to a constantly changing marketplace. Proclaiming B.C. Beef Day was a recommendation made by the 12-member Ranching Task Force (RTF). At the request

of Premier Gordon Campbell, the beef industry and the province teamed up to identify government and industry actions to support the ranching industry’s recovery from the challenging economic times they have experienced since 2003. The task force was challenged to idenEric Foster tify innovative ways of raising the profile of ranching and beef in B.C. A large part of B.C. Beef Day is to raise awareness and encourage buying local. In B.C. we are lucky enough that our agriculture sector can provide just about everything we require for everyday nourishment. In addition to proclaiming B.C. Beef Day, the province will
