News Divisions may soften village approach RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A prison is still on the radar in Lumby, but it may not be the priority it once was. Council has decided to keep investigating the prospect of a correctional facility after a public meeting Tuesday. But Mayor Kevin Acton admits significant opposition puts the concept in doubt. â€œThere wonâ€™t be a strong push to get this put into the ground but there will be a strong push for information,â€? he said. Close to 400 people jammed into the White Valley Community Centre to debate the merits of a prison as an economic development stimulus. Surveys were also filled out. â€œIt was so close â€” almost 50/50,â€? Acton. â€œWe wouldnâ€™t be doing our due diligence if we didnâ€™t get more information. It sort of puts us back to square one â€” unsure.â€? Acton says opposition to a prison canâ€™t be ignored, even if it means giving up jobs and a potential source of revenue for the village. â€œThe point that came across is people love the village and they donâ€™t care if there are potholes in the street. They donâ€™t want a prison,â€? he said. There was no shortage of speakers at the microphones during the two-and-a-halfhour session. â€œI never once felt insecure from living by those prisons,â€? said Phil Owen, who resided in Agassiz, which is home to two facilities. â€œIf a prison came to Lumby, I would not feel insecure.â€? Karen Bernard insisted there is a need to look at creating economic development
opportunities. â€œWhat this town needs to survive is a good business base. What council is trying to do is give us that base,â€? she said. â€œIf we donâ€™t build a base, taxes will go higher.â€? It was also suggested that a correctional facility would help extend sewer and water to the industrial park, which would attract other businesses to town. â€œItâ€™s really hard to find serviced industrial land,â€? said Harvey Downs. â€œThis is an opportunity for this community to have unbelievable growth.â€? Al Hobson said Lumby canâ€™t rely on its small town atmosphere and natural environment when there are no jobs and big-budget items like a new sewer plant are needed. â€œWe hear that itâ€™s a beautiful place but nobody wants to pay more taxes.â€? But other residents questioned why Lumby council initiated the concept of a jail. â€œThereâ€™s lots of things that bring economic benefits. Iâ€™ve never seen a community meeting called to bring a college campus to Lumby,â€? said Don Elzer. â€œThis is all about selling us on a prison.â€? That was also the view of Paul Fisher. â€œWeâ€™re hoping the prison will be our magic pill but maybe we should not look at Lumby as a prison town, but as a tourism town,â€? he said. Huguette Allen isnâ€™t convinced that the staff working at a prison would reside in Lumby or if they would live elsewhere. â€œItâ€™s not sure that the people of Lumby will get jobs,â€? she said.

Phil Owen speaks in favour of a correctional facility during a public meeting at the White Valley Community Centre Tuesday. There was also a focus on public safety, and resident Walter Oldenborger was upset with comments that a minimum security facility would primarily house inmates responsible for break and enter, robbery and theft under $5,000. â€œYou talk about break and enters and robberies as if they are misdemeanors. They are serious offences,â€? he said. Other residents expressed concern that inmates could be visited by associates who pursue crime while in Lumby, or that inmates would remain in the community once they are released. â€œI hate the idea of a prison being in the backyard of our schools,â€? said Dawne Kineshanko. There was also a concern that the provincial government could ultimately change the status of the facility so it housed dangerous offenders. â€œThis council needs to watch itself. Keep your eyes open,â€? said one man. Some residents left the meeting undecided. â€œI was for it, but now Iâ€™m on the fence,â€? said Dawn McLean.

â€œWe want a straight guarantee that things will work out for us.â€? Tuesdayâ€™s meeting was one of the largest gatherings ever in Lumby, and Acton was impressed with the willingness of residents to take an active role in their communityâ€™s future. â€œIâ€™m overwhelmed and proud to be part of Lumby,â€? he said.

Tolko curtails mill activities RICHARD ROLKE
“We regret the impact this will have on our employees and their families,” he said, adding that it’s not a result of anything the workers have done. “We acknowledge and thank our employees for their continuing hard work to improve productivity during this period of volatile product prices.” Beyond individual employees, Donnelly points out that the downtime has a negative impact on the company. “If you’re not running the facility, you have got a capital investment you’re not using,” he said. Tolko Industries is a private company with more than 3,500 employees in Western Canada, including in Armstrong, Lavington and Lumby. It’s a major producer and marketer of lumber, veneer, plywood, oriented strand board, and kraft papers, with manufacturing operations.
Morning Star Staff
Some workers at Tolko Industries’ Armstrong division are getting an unexpected summer break. The Vernon-based company has announced the division’s plywood operation will take market-related downtime for a minimum of one week starting July 5. That impacts 150 employees. “We’ve had a pretty good run for a couple of months but we’re now building volume and there’s no take away,” said Pat Donnelly, Armstrong division site manager, of a lack of sales. Much of the upheaval in the market is a result of trends south of the border. “U.S. housing starts are down,” said Donnelly, adding that Tolko must adjust its operations in response to customer demand. “With the economic period
Tolko’s plywood operation in Armstrong is initiating a minimum one-week closure starting July 5. we are going through, we will see significant ups and downs and we have to manage the best way we can.” Plywood production is scheduled to resume July 12 but that will depend on market conditions at the time. “It could be longer, defi-
nitely,” said Donnelly. “Customers can be conservative and then they can jump in and purchase a couple of blocks.” Donnelly admits that the decision to cease operations temporarily wasn’t an easy one to make.

Local police helping with security at Toronto summits ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
There’s a North Okanagan presence at the ongoing G8 and G20 summits in and near Toronto, featuring world leaders. A handful of Ve r n o n - N o r t h Okanagan RCMP officers are on hand as part of the $1 billion security team assigned to the events. “We have a total of eight officers assigned to the summits,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. Several of the officers are with the Kelowna-based Southeast District’s tactical team, which is trained in riot control and to do searches of areas for security purposes. A couple of offi-
cers are with an emergency response team, and a handful are there to cover static positions.
The sending of local officers to Toronto is similar to when the detachment shipped

Directors split over media duties RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A communications policy at the North Okanagan Regional District certainly has directors communicating. Rules surrounding media statements have been amended so general managers of various departments can issue press releases. However, some would like to see the number of spokespeople pared back. “It should be the administrator or the chair of the board doing it,” said director Will Hansma. “There shouldn’t
“If you’re going to the media, you need to have the facts.” — Mike Macnabb be all of these different people talking to the media. Whether it’s intentional or not, there can be a twist.” Director Dee Wejr is also concerned about oversight if employees go before reporters. “There’s a lot of people that could be going out and talking to the
media without checking with anyone,” she said. Wejr’s preference is that the administrator, who is currently Greg Betts, deal with media inquiries. “He can then refer the press to an expert but he should know what’s going on,” she said.
But other board members insist that general managers of specific departments, such as water or parks, should deal with the media so the proper technical information is provided to the community. “If you’re going to the media, you need to have the facts,” said director Mike Macnabb. That is also the view of director Chris Pieper. “The general manager can speak on their particular area,” he said. Under the old policy, only the board chairman or administrator were
authorized to approve press releases on behalf of the district. “The current policy does not reflect the increased level of responsibility and authority provided to the general managers within their functional area with respect to communications, nor does it give the administrator authority to appoint a media spokesperson on any matter which is not considered one of major significance,” said Betts in a written memo. With the new policy in place, media releases can still be authorized
by the chairman of the board or the administrator, but they can also now be issued by the general manager of the relevant function. Macnabb wants assurances that NORD employees will feel comfortable dealing with the media so the appropriate message gets out. “Unless a person has training, they can make a mess of things,” he said.
Information wanted on incinerator plans RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Enderby politicians want assurances that a proposed animal waste incinerator is safe. On Monday, council heard from Richard Yntema who is proposing to burn animal carcasses on his property in the adjacent rural electoral area, and from some residents who are against development of a facility. “We don’t get a vote on it (because it is outside of city boundaries) but it’s part of our com-

Environment to meet with us,” said Wejr. “They say it’s OK to put an incinerator in but there’s so much opposition.” Yntema has applied
of odour, contamination of livestock and increased traffic. Wejr hopes some middle ground can be found so Yntema can move ahead and the public’s concerns are addressed. “Maybe there is a safer way to do it,” she said. “If we get the ministry involved, perhaps there can be a win-win for everyone.”

Flightcraft issues 43 layoff notices A high Canadian dollar has put 43 Flightcraft employees out of work. “We had aircraft coming in for maintenance, but they went somewhere else —where the dollar is lower— and that left a hole in our schedule,” said Grant Stevens, human resources director. Stevens said that the bulk of layoffs, including some Vernon area residents, were in the maintenance department. The company, which is based at the Kelowna International Airport, still employs 567 locally, and managed to ride out the recession with little ado. Sustained by a number of larger, long-term projects and outstanding contract work, the expectation was that the business would continue to succeed as the economy improved.
But the loss of a couple of contracts delivered a significant blow to the company. “Aviation has been on a downward slope for a number of years, but we’ve managed to weather the storm very well,” said Stevens. “I think employees and staff had been on pins and needles over the last couple of weeks as they looked at the work schedule, in the hangars and saw there wasn’t a lot of work for the summer. We made the changes, to put people’s fears at bay.” Stevens said the company will continue to work on its operations to ensure global economic factors don’t further internal strife. “Our company is working to make sure we are one of the most efficient, high-quality maintenance organizations in North America, and that will continue to bring customers to the area.”

good-looking man with silver hair and beard, wearing a black leather jacket, showed up at my office to take me for a ride on his motorcycle. This is not a grandmother’s secret fantasy — it really happened to me, and it was wonderful. Some time ago, I mentioned in my column some of the things I still hoped to do in my life — the bucket list — although I had not heard that term at the time. One of them was to have a ride on a motorcycle, as Cara Brady my life had been deprived in never having had a boyfriend who had a motorcycle. Not such a big thing, but not likely to be part of my life at this point. But you can’t have everything and I have had lots of nice things in my life. Still, I would sometimes look enviously at women on the backs of motorcycles, their hair flying in the wind. Fate had a treat waiting for me. I was interviewing counselor Gwen Holt for an unrelated article and at the end of the interview, she told me that her husband, Jim Holt, would be happy to fulfill my wish for a motorcycle ride. Apparently this is not an uncommon wish for grandmothers to have, and her good man has made it come true for more than one grandmother, some older, if that’s possible, than this one. I was thrilled. We set up a time and I hoped it wouldn’t rain. My next thought was for what I would wear. I know a woman should be able to go to her closet at any time and be able to get dressed for any occasion but my wardrobe is sadly lacking in biker chick apparel — that is, the stereotype of black leather, chains and tattoos. Gwen said she wears leather only for long trips on the highway. In the end, I wore my regular work clothes, supplemented by my lucky amulet necklace. Jim showed up with his burgundy 1988 Yamaha Venture, buckled the helmet on my head and told me to sit back on the seat and hold on.

“If you sit back, you won’t even notice the corners,” he said. He was right, it has something to do with the equilibrium, of the bike, not the passenger. While I would have been happy with a ride out to the lake, Jim had a better idea. He headed out to Old Kamloops Road. I had expected to feel a little scared and had mentally allowed myself small shrieks if necessary but it wasn’t. After a few blocks, I unclenched my hands from the waist of his leather jacket. My hair was flying in the wind. I felt quite glamourous and devil-may-care. I hoped people I knew would see me and comment on how cool I looked. I felt much safer than I had thought I would and Jim’s professional driving made sure that there were no angry motorists around us. While I always enjoy driving in the countryside, this was a whole new experience. I could smell the new hay, the cattle in the field, the wood chips, the wild roses. I felt that I could reach out and pick a a few roses or touch the hills or dip a toe in Otter Lake. He indulged my uncharacteristic speed habit, within legal limits, of course, and the higher speed, strangely, seemed both faster and slower than it does in a car. The slower speed also had its charm, like being in a canoe but on land. Jim, who has been biking for 19 years, waved to other bikers. It seems people start biking at any age — he pointed out a good place to go if I wanted to buy a bike of my own — and that young bikers just become old bikers. “When the helmets come off, it’s grey hair now. They’re the ones who can afford it,” he said. He even stopped and let me have a photo of myself on the bike, something I will treasure. Jim and Gwen do mainly shorter day trips around the area but once a year they go to Vancouver Island, traveling light and taking two days to get there. Here’s to you, Jim and Gwen. Thank you for making my motorcycle dream come true. It was incredibly kind and generous of you. Now, the next item on the bucket list is....
The North Okanagan’s MLAs continue to keep their heads buried in the sand. Both Eric Foster and George Abbott acknowledge that there’s been significant numbers of constituents signing the anti-HST petition, but despite the numbers that surpass what it took to get them elected, they won’t budge from the Liberals’ taxation policy. “There’s a strong economic case for the HST,” said Abbott. And that may very well be the case, but more than 12,000 voters in Shuswap have said loud and clear that they don’t want it. Why isn’t their elected representative listening to them? Foster does nothing but mock those who oppose the tax and his support of it. “They are just media hounds and the are doing it for political advantage,” he said of the Fight HST group, which is now considering whether the VernonMonashee MLA should be the focus of a recall campaign. Certainly Bill Vander Zalm’s leadership of Fight HST adds a political element to to the mix, particularly because he was a controversial premier. But Foster ignores the fact that the anti-HST forces consist of people from all political backgrounds, including First Nations, labour, business and seniors. With the petition numbers that have been collected, it’s a given that many of the people upset with the HST voted for Foster. Foster and Abbott are both quick to point out that they were elected to represent the residents of their respective constituencies, but it’s increasingly apparent that they are out of touch. Now is the time for our two MLAs to do the right thing. Break ranks with the government and stand side-by-side with those that put them into office.

THANK YOU I have a chronic medical condition which unfortunately sends me to the hospital from time to time. Recently, I had to be rushed by ambulance to Vernon Jubilee. I have been through this event several times but I never wrote a thank you note until now. The ambulance EMTs were swift in coming and going and the "ladies" helped settle the situation quickly and with care. Even with all of the chaos that is the ER, nurses A.J. and Alexis took wonderful care of me. The doctors who took my case acted quickly which was greatly appreciated. Also, I thank Dr. L. Hayward and Dr. Hanely for the awesome, well-rounded care and attention. I also spent four days up on 3 North and I met some more wonderful nurses. Eunice, Alice and Lori, to name a few, were very professional and compassionate. Also, the janitorial staff and kitchen staff were cheerful and sweet. Finally, I'd like to thank my family and friends for caring the way they do. I hope I haven't forgotten anyone because you are all wonderful at what you do, thank you all.

I have become quite familiar with the hospital over many years and the care is top-notch. However, recently, I have come to the ER and there were no beds available. I had to sit in a chair in the hallway with many others. No fault of the doctors and staff. In fact, they rose to the occasion and made all of us patients as comfortable as possible even in that crazy situation. I realize that there is a new tower but we need beds and a bigger ER. Now when I go to the hospital, I wonder will they have a bed? And I'm sure I'm not the only sick person who has wondered the same thing. We all need to do what we can to support the doctors of this hospital and bring in more beds. The doctors are behind us, we need to be behind them.

Be sun safe while outside as sunburns and sun damage build up over time and have a cumulative effect on skin, making people more susceptible to skin cancer.

Follow these SunSense guidelines to protect yourself and your family from the harmful effects of the sun and ultraviolet (UV) radiation: Reduce exposure to the sun when its rays are the most intense between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. or when the UV Index is three or more. Seek out shade Slip on lightweight, tightly woven, loose-fitting clothing to cover your arms and legs. Slap on a wide-brimmed hat that covers your head, face, ears and neck. Wear sunglasses with UVA and UVB protection. Apply sunscreen generously with SPF #15 or higher. If you will be outside for most of the day, use SPF #30. Look for “broad spectrum” on the label. This means that the sunscreen offers protection against both UVA and UVB rays. Keep babies out of the direct sun Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in Canada, and exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun or artificial tanning equipment can increase your risk of developing skin cancer. In 2010, an estimated 80,800
Canadians will be diagnosed with skin cancer (5,300 of which are melanoma, the most serious form of skin cancer). Enjoy the sun safely.

I have taken many seniors and others with mobility issues to either sit in the car parked at the pond with an ice cream cone, enjoying the ducks, pigeons, flowers and activities. Others have walked short distances with a walker and sat on a bench for the same enjoyment. Myself, I've enjoyed many a quick lunch in my car in the shade or at a picnic table. So many would lose these pleasures if vehicles were not allowed. Judy Hawley THERE'S HOPE With life and death seemingly so close together, it was encour-

Within this process of the alternate approval, which states that if 10 per cent of the electorate pick up a form and sign it, that bylaw dies. If the board wishes to proceed further, a full referendum must take place. If the number of those opposing does not reach 10 per cent, the board may then proceed with this bylaw. It is my opinion that this is a very unsatisfactory way of obtaining a fair and democratic standard. All persons qualified must be given the full opportunity to express their wishes privately at the ballot box. If they wish not to, then they accept the ruling of the majority. I am not writing on the proposal, just the method being used to seek a result. Michael Fairbrass

Restoration of Greater Vernon’s natural environment is getting a significant boost. The federal government is providing $82,213 for two projects along Coldstream and BX creeks. “We have a habitat worth preserving,” said Ken Barton, Allan Brooks Nature Centre president. The centre will receive $65,990 for interpretive trail signs along BX Creek, from Swan Lake to 48th Avenue. “They will identify some species and habi-
“We have a habitat worth preserving.” — Ken Barton tat along the trail,” said Susan Latimer, with ABNC. Besides increasing public awareness, a wetland will be constructed during the second year of the project. “We want to get the community involved with planting the wetland,” said Latimer. A total of $16,223 will also go towards the Society for the
Protection of Kalamalka Lake. The society wants to restore a portion of Coldstream Creek between Kirkland Drive and McClounie Road by introducing riparian plants to adjacent property owners. “We want to teach them how to plant them and care for them,” said Trina Koch, society president.
“The plants provide a solid base for soils so there isn’t sedimentation.” Sedimentation, along with with pollution, have fuelled numerous concerns about water quality in Coldstream Creek, which eventually drains into Kalamalka Lake. “We have to get the public interested in Coldstream Creek and to be proud of the creek,” said Koch.
The $82,213 comes from Environment Canada’s EcoAction Community Program, and Colin Mayes, Okanagan-Shuswap MP, believes it makes sense for the government to partner with local organizations. “You know what is needed in your community,” he said of the Allan Brooks Nature Centre and the Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake.

Reconciliation about ‘hope’ JEREMY DEUTSCH Black Press
JEREMY DEUTSCH/BLACK PRESS
Chief Wayne Christian meets Gilda Bernath and one of her foster children during a reconciliation ceremony in Kamloops on Monday.
“I can see hope and that’s what this is about.” — Wayne Christian brother killed himself while in the care of the province, said he has seen the destruction years of misguided government policies have caused. “I think the time when we have our kids in the care of state is long past,” Christian said. “We have to move beyond that.” He said many Canadians don’t fully understand how critical the connection to families is among First Nations. Also taking part in the ceremony were Gilda Bernath and her

five foster children. The family drove to Kamloops from 108 Mile Ranch in the Cariboo. Bernath said it was important for her children, five young siblings from Canam Lake, to feel a part of a broader aboriginal community. She said she tries to keep the children as connected to their original community as much as possible, noting it’s part of her responsibility as a foster mom. “It’s really important,” Bernath said. “They’d be lost if they weren’t connected to their family and the
community.” The kids attend a school in Canam Lake and attend all cultural events in their community. Bernath, who only started fostering children last year, said she realized quickly how crucial it was to keep her children connected to their First Nation community. Mary Polak, minister of children and family development, who was in Kamloops for Monday’s reconciliation ceremony, said the eventual goal is to have aboriginal communities looking after aboriginal children. She said the ministry’s role is to support First Nations in developing children and family-care practices according to their own traditional laws and at their own pace.

Chief Wayne Christian was 12 years old when he was taken from his home and forced to live with foster parents. He remembers the day he came home to learn his brothers and sisters had been taken away — and that he would be next. It was misery dealt by the hands of the provincial government. More than 40 years later, the chief of the Splats’in First Nation near Enderby is leading a charge so it will never happen to another generation of aboriginal youth. “I’ve lived through this process. I’ve seen everything,” he said. Monday marked a big step forward for Christian and his fellow chiefs’ efforts to ensure aboriginal communities are given responsibility of taking care of their own children. At a reconciliation ceremony at the Kamloops Indian Band reserve, which drew political dignitaries along with foster parents and children in foster care, the provincial government started the process by recognizing the inherent jurisdiction First Nations have over their families. “I can see hope and that’s what this is about,” Christian said. “For us to say, ‘Enough of this. Let’s reassert our own authority with our traditions, our processes and let us look after our own.’” Christian, whose
Polak noted 53 per cent of children in the ministry’s care are aboriginal, yet they only make up six to eight per cent of the general population. She said there are currently 90 nationto-nation discussions within the ministry at various stages. Polak also praised First Nations communities for taking part in the reconciliation process and for continually coming to the table to work with government. “They are the ones truly bringing the power to this,” she said. The new direction by the ministry appears have support across party lines. NDP leader Carole James called the Kamloops ceremony “very moving” and “powerful.” James, a foster mother herself for 20 years, credited the B.C. Liberal government for taking the fist steps, but said there are many issues that need to be addressed, including poverty and housing on reserves. “Until you address those issues, you’re not going to address the child-welfare issue,” she said. But the day of reconciliation wasn’t about politics. In a true act of reconciliation, Christian honoured his own foster parents and the ones present at the ceremony, noting he wouldn’t be where he is today without them.

The turnout was humble but the message was clear at an antiHST rally Wednesday in Vernon. Annette Kazmar, with the Old Age Pensioners Organization, and Michelle Mungall, an NDP MLA from Nelson-Creston, claim B.C. seniors are going to get hit hard by the harmonized sales tax, and Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster should resign from the Liberal caucus. over it “What hit home for me is, in talking to Okanagan seniors, it’s going to cost more to be a grandparent,” said Mungall, who met with Kazmar in downtown Vernon Wednesday to make their views known. “Sending a card, going out to dinner, the things grandparents do (are going to cost more).” Kazmar, who calls herself a poverty-level senior, says seniors should be given more consideration because of their contributions to Canada. “We have not had a (pension) raise in I don’t know how many years,” she said. “We’re the ones who built this country, not the major corporations, but they get all the breaks. We get nothing.” Both women feel Foster is merely toeing the party line to protect his position within the provincial government. “The question

Rural property owners in the Central Okanagan West electoral area should have recently received tax notices from the provincial government. The Central Okanagan Regional District reminds North Westside residents that it doesnâ€™t issue property tax notices and is not able to collect taxes directly from residents or businesses or accept payment of property taxes. â€œUnder the existing system, taxes for regional district purposes are collected by the province,â€? said communications co-ordinator Bruce Smith. Payments for rural property taxes by North Westside property owners are payable to the Minister of Finance.

City of Vernon RCMP Safe Communities Unit Summer Safety Patrol members Alysha Hardy (from), Kasia Chase, Kylie Dillon and Becky Dodds, and anti-tag team members Rhian Williams and Emily Rice have begun their summer duties, acting as extra eyes and ears for the RCMP.
Patrol on the summer beat ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Just a few weeks into the job and it’s already been a busy summer for the City of Vernon RCMP Safe Community Unit’s anti-tag team. The duo of Emily Rice and Rhian Williams are responsible for identifying, documenting and removing unwanted tags and graffiti from Vernon businesses and buildings. “The girls have been working for a week-and-ahalf and they’ve already identified 292 instances of tagging and graffiti,” saidd Rachael Zubick of the Safe Communities Unit, who oversees the anti-tag team along with the Summer Safety Patrol. “Sixty of the tags have been removed, 32 by the anti-tag team, 20 by the City of Vernon and eight by businesses themselves.” Started last year as a pilot project, the anti-tag team was so successful that the Safe Communities Unit had no problems bringing it back in 2010. Same goes for the Summer Safety Patrol, a fourwoman crew who act as extra eyes and ears for the RCMP. The safety patrol has been a fixture in and around Vernon streets since 2001. “Both of are crews this year are phenomenal,” said Zubick. “They’re out on bike or on foot and it gives some comfort to the residents to see more uniforms out on the street.” Williams and Rice are decked out in white tops. The Summer Safety Patrol, clad in blue, consists of Kasia Chase, Alysha Hardy – a returnee from last year – Kylie Dillon, a sister of a former patrol member, and Becky Dodds. It’s also been a busy start to the season for the
“Sixty of the tags have been removed, 32 by the anti-tag team.”

patrol. “Since starting June 1, they have found 14 needles, six crack pipes and five cases of open liquor,” said Zubick. “They’ve made contacts with 901 adults, 103 youth and 202 children.” One of the things the summer patrol will be working on, and watching for, is making sure all people are wearing helmets when it comes to activities such as cycling and skateboarding. Especially adults. “What they’ve seen so far is that most youth are wearing helmets, but it’s the adults who are not,” said Zubick.

An 81-year-old Kelowna man got away with cuts to his head after rolling his vehicle down a 30-foot embankment off Westside Road Wednesday. Police and emergency crews responded to the incident at 9:30 a.m. after a burgundy Subaru stationwagon, that was travelling northbound on Browse Road, went over an embankment.

North Okanagan residents can take part in some old-fashioned fun Saturday. O’Keefe Ranch will host Family Fun Day from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. “Visitors can take in all of the old favourites,” said Alicia Kay, special events co-ordinator. “Tour the O’Keefe mansion, the Greenhow Museum, the North Okanagan Model Railway or get some heritage candy from the general store.” There will also be bocce ball, horseshoes, a colouring contest, mural painting and a chance for children to build their own scarecrow, which they can take home. “Kids can try their luck and throw their line into the fishing hole,” said Kay. “Also, the ranch has some new spring arrivals, so everyone can come say hello to the new lambs, and can come by and visit the animals.” There will be free tractor rides, Zumba, cloth dyeing demonstrations and more. “A day at the ranch would make for the perfect day out to celebrate the beginning of summer and the end of a busy school year,” said Kay. For more information, call 250-542-7868 or go to www.okeeferanch.ca.

Fraser saddles up for Kentucky GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
Armstrong’s Sylvie Fraser has got a brand new ride. She still has to tow it all the way to Kentucky though. That is where she and her new mount, Tango (aka World Star LHF), a seven-year-old Hanoverian gelding, will compete in the North American Junior Rider Dressage Championships, July 28-Aug. 1. This will be Fraser’s second stab at NorAms; competing in her international debut last year, she placed a respectable 19th out of 36 junior entries. “I was pretty well prepared because my coach (Janine Little) prepared me well. I was in a good mental frame of mind so I didn’t get nervous,” said Fraser. Added Little: “That experience will definitely help her. She knows what it’s all about now.” Having trotted away with youth champion titles from each of the three FEI (Fédération Equestre Internationale) competitions she entered this season (Red Deer, Edmonton and Kelowna), Fraser will go into this year’s competition armed with increased confidence. “I’m hoping for better results this year, both individually and as a (Canadian) team, because it’s my second year at it. “You never know with horses, but so far I have the highest qualifying average (66.4) out of the Canadian riders.” Although Tango, owned by Kelowna’s Susanne Berger, has very little show experience, Fraser is thrilled with the new partnership. “He’s got lots of potential and he’s got what judges are looking for in a junior horse,” she said. “He’s really rideable and we match really well size-wise, and he has a great personality.” The event will take place at the ultra-posh Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington. It’s kind of like Graceland for horses. In addition to the lavish show stadium, stables and training areas, there are also horse museums and memorials. The Horse Park is also hosting the illustrious Alltech SPRING PHOTOGRAPHY FEI World Equestrian Games shortly before NorAms. It will mark the first time the Games have been held outside Armstrong’s Sylvie Fraser gets in some ring time with her mount Tango during a training session in Kelowna.

Black Sox outgun Angels Morning Star Staff
The CUPE Black Sox held off the Cold Stone Creamery Angels 8-5 Wednesday night in the Vernon Minor Baseball Association Mosquito Division playoff final at Lakeview Park. The Sox, coached by Rick Leroux and Dan Bosquet, got first-inning runs from Riley Swiscoski, Zach Orchard and Jarod Leroux. The Angels, guided by Dan Currie and Tom Love, answered with two runs in the bottom of the first. Landon Currie's smash single highlighted the inning which saw Ty McCall and Thomas Love cross home plate. Singles by Josh Bridge, Ethan King, Dawson Chase and Swiscoski sparked a three-run second inning for the Sox. Chase struck out two batters to shut out the Angels. The Sox increased their lead in the third inning when Leroux tripled to right field to bring in Bryce Turner, who had singled. Carter Bosquet drove in Leroux. The Creamery crew put together a string of singles by Currie, Hayden Broderick and Jonas Ramsey but couldn't score in their half of the third.
Neither team scored n the fourth as Currie fanned a pair of Sox and King mowed down a pair of Angels. The CUPE gang got a single from Chase and walks from Owen Mottus and Swiscoski in the fifth (open inning), but Currie closed them down. The Angels, sporting rally caps, erupted for three runs in the fifth as Broderick smacked a two-run single and Currie stroked a run-scoring triple to right field. Bridge started on the mound for the Sox, while Austin Fairburn, Noah Schneider and Cole Martin also pitched for the Angels. The Sox took their trophy and celebrated with Frosty floats and sundaes at Wendy's, while the Angels headed to Dairy Queen since their sponsor doesn't open for ice cream business until next week. The Angels outlasted the Sox 12-10 in earlier round-robin playoff action, topping the seventeam table at 5-1. The Sox placed second at 4-1-1. The rest of the championship Sox roster is: Dallas Howard, Tristan Metz, Nick Mitchell and Nathan Nesbitt.
Full field for Kal RATS triathlon Morning Star Staff
There will be plenty of carbo-loading, electrolyte-sipping athletes on hand Sunday morning for the 16th annual Kal RATS (Running And Triathlon Sports) Sprint Triathlon at Kin Beach. Race director Kim Johaneson says registration is completely filled, with more than 230 athletes – both individuals and relay teams – entered. All the more reason for people to come out and cheer these competitors on, he adds. The race starts at 8:30 a.m. The course comprises a 750-metre swim, 18.5km bike and 5-km run, and offers a good challenge as both the bike and run portions have some hilly sections. Johaneson reminds drivers to watch for competing cyclists along Okanagan Landing Road during the race. Coldstream teen triathlon sensation, Joel Johnson, finished first overall at last year’s event, completing the course in 57 minutes and 53 seconds. Amongst the racers will be a group of more
than 40 first-timers that enrolled in the Learn to Tri course offered by the Greater Vernon Parks and Recreation. “Many will go onto other races and distances throughout the valley,” said Johaneson. “This race has served as many athletes’ first triathlon due to its size, affordability and generous draw prizes.” Kal RATS is a local club with more than 100 members who compete in and volunteer for local sporting events throughout the Okanagan Valley. The club hosts three events each year – Starting Block 10-km in February, Sprint Tri and the upcoming 9.5-km cross-country race on Oct. 31. It also provides organizational support for Interior Running Association events held in Vernon. The RATS have also created the Al Hubbard Scholarship for Youth, aimed at supporting youth in triathlon (and sport in general). A $500 bursary is awarded annually to a deserving youth in the school district. To learn more about the club, visit www.kalrats.com.

The Okanagan Impact grounded Monashee's Pub 6-1 in North Okanagan Women's Soccer Association Masters Division action Tuesday night at Marshall Field #4. The league-leading Impact grabbed a 2-1 lead after a very close first half. They settled into more control, ownership of the ball, and momentum, to register four unanswered second-half goals. Liz Thomson scored twice for the Impact, connecting once off a free kick just outside the 18-yard box. Minda Chittenden, Edeen Ramsey, on a gorgeous header, Shelinda Morin and Reena Leupin completed the Impact offence. Tori Haller responded for Monashee's with a looper over the keeper's head. The Vernon Square Liquor Store North Okanagan United tripped up the Tillicum Controllers 3-1 at Marshall #5. Tania Willett opened the scoring after her rocket shot created an air ball which Willett ran in off her stomach, her first goal in 15 years. Feeling the goal fever, Willett then connected on a penalty shot, burying a hard, low blast into the left corner of the net. NOU got their final goal after some great patience by Rita Tedesco. MJ Stapleton was welcomed back after being off for some weeks due to injury, and she marked her return by running up and down the defensive line. Shelley Henry was the keeper of the game. Danielle Dunsmore supplied the Tillicum goal with a chip over the keeper's head in the first half. Jacquie Nuyens drew the assist. The defensive line of Sena Bishop, Val Percy and Shawn Yargeau did a great job working the ball up to midfielders Krista Copeland, Angela Durfeld and Therese Weber. Forward Beth Boyd had some great chances while Amy Shupe and Emma Louie were consistent as always. The Shuswap Kaos brushed back the visiting Vernon Chick Kickers 2-0 with keeper Janet Norr using an aggressive style to thwart several Chick Kicker attacks. Jody Beagle scored in the first half, while Lisa Ashton netted her first goal of the season in the second half. In Competitive Division play, the Little Tex Outlaws ambushed Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers Pub 8-1 at Marshall #2. Lindsay Lee pulled the hat trick as Little Tex built up a 6-1 halftime lead. Emma Dolcetti (2), Monica Neilson, Anita Rae, off a beautiful cross by Neilson, and Jessa Joles rounded out the Little Tex scoring. Stephanie Gourlie had a strong game in the midfield, while Lee was a force in the middle, controlling the play with many through balls and good passing to create numerous scoring opportunities. Jordan Mercer was stellar as sweeper, shutting down Dr. Lee's speedy front line. Jacquie Hansen scored for Checkers to tie the game at 1-1 early in the first half. The AF Blazers downed the Vernon

Turn-Key gains tie with NET
Morning Star Staff
The Kelowna Jays pounced on a one-inning lapse as they outgunned the Vernon ANAF Diamondbacks 12-4 in Okanagan Major Baseball League play Wednesday night at Marshall Field. The D-backs gave Jarred Sochan the ball for his first OMBL start, and he pitched well before being lifted in the fourth, allowing four runs. Trailing 3-0, the D-backs scored three runs in the third inning to equalize. C.J. Galozo, making his debut with the Diamondbacks, scored Vernonâ€™s first run on an RBI single by Ryan Boe. Oggie Ortman Josh Wade followed up with another single, before Oggie Ortman cleared the bags with a double. All three runs came with two outs. The Diamondbacksâ€™ downfall came in the top of the fourth, as the Jays cracked five runs to blow open a very close game. The D-backs responded with a single in the fifth, but the Jays stayed steady with their bats to earn the win. Mike Patitucci, John McInnis and Ashton Kodiak all saw time on the mound in the final innings. At the plate, Steve Daamen, Tyler Amiel and TJ Novakowski had singles. Wade finished at 2-for-4. The D-backs entertain the expansion Penticton Pirates in a doubleheader, Saturday at Marshall. Game times are 1 and 3:30 p.m. Visit www.vernondbacks.com for more information.

The older and more experienced North Enderby Timber settled for a 1-1 draw with the youthful Turn-Key Controls in a North Okanagan Men's Soccer Association derby match Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. Turn-Key used a strong start and finish for the point, while NET enjoyed possession advantage in the middle portion. The Controllers came within a Rob McGloin crossbar of opening the offence. Despite Turn-Key owning play in the early going, NET used a great effort by Brent Poulsen to take the lead and the momentum when Poulsen beat keeper Spencer Brown near the 23rd minute. The Timber carried the play for the rest of the half. Brown and NET keeper Danny Stein were solid throughout the second half, but Justin Phillips recorded the equalizer off a Chris Jahnig through ball in the 83rd minute. Brown was huge for Turn-Key (3-4-1) in the final minutes, turning aside a determined NET (5-1-2) attack. Salmon Arm's Nation of Domination Eagle Homes grounded Vernon's Concept Physio 6-1 at Marshall Field #3. Coverage breakdowns led to several good scoring chances for Eagle Homes. A superbly struck direct kick from just outside the box to the top corner rounded out the NOD (6-1) scoring. With strong games from Brock Reim, Edwin Cruz and goal scorer Alex MacDougall, Concept Physio (0-8) kept pressuring NOD right up to the final whistle. The Davidson & Co. Dynamite shelled the Kal Sports Bar 8-0 at Marshall Field #4. Carson Haywood-Farmer scored twice as the Dynamite improved to 3-4-1, while the expansion Kal crew fell to 1-7. In Revelstoke, the first-place Stallions brushed back Vernonâ€™s Monashee Surveying 2-1. Revelstoke scored early on a nice one-timer with

Monashee (3-6) only fielding nine players to start. The surveyors gained their form near the half with a full squad and equalized on a bizarre play. Keeper Colin McDonnell made a huge save with defender Matt Goldie sending the rebound down the sideline, where winger Cam Clary pressured a Stallion defender, who buried a 40-yard back pass with the keeper waiting, stunned, at the top of the 18-yard line. The Stallions (6-0-1) scored the late winner on a turnover deep inside the Monashee zone.

Calgary’s Ross Hunter was the top flying ace at the National Hang Gliding Championships, which wrapped up Monday in Lumby. Hosted by Lumby Air Force, a total of 18 competitors completed the week-long competition, and Hunter, with 1372 points, was the clear winner. After five rounds of racing around the Monashee valley, he finished nearly 300 points ahead of runner-up David Scott of the U.S. Lumby’s Garth Hemming, the lone local competitor, ended up in 13th place. Meet organizers Randy Rauck and Hemming, both Lumby Air Force directors, presented Hunter with the grand prize, a new Freedom 170 Hang Glider, manufactured by North Wing Designs of Washington State. The prize was made possible thanks to the generous donations of sponsors North Wing, Raven Aviation and Lumby Air Force. This is the 10th time the club has hosted nationals since the mid-1970s. Event organizers thanked all the volunteers and sponsors for their support. For more information and a complete list of sponsors, visit www.lumbyairforce.com.

The Sun Valley Source for Sports Lightning Bolts of the North Okanagan Minor Lacrosse Association ended their Tyke season Saturday with a pair of games in Merritt. The Bolts opened by earning a 6-6 tie with Penticton. Lucas Dyck went the distance in net for the Bolts, whose first goal was unassisted by Tye Krause. Owen McKill, who finished the game with two goals, ended the first period with a sweet goal assisted by Krause Nate Williamson scored from Kohl Killingbeck, and McKill also connected in the second period which ended 4-4. Michael Preston scored shorthanded just seconds after the Sun Valley penalty
started, the assist going to Nate Benn. With three minutes left, Preston got another shorthanded goal to make it 6-6. Ehan Vryenhoek-Frank drew the assist. The Bolts then bowed 11-8 to Kelowna, despite a five-goal showing by Preston. Mason Palmer was fantastic in goal for the Bolts, who got two goals from Vrynhoek-Frank and one from McKill. One of Vrynhoek-Frank's goals came off a sweet face-off win by Dyck. Krause pocketed a pair of helpers. Coaches Ryan Williamson, Kody Nitchie and Mel Frank were praised by manager Erika Jones "for turning our 'little guys' into mighty lacrosse players."

Hockey frolics slated Morning Star Staff
Theyâ€™re calling it Hockey Day in Vernon. Bring out your sticks, helmets and gloves and enjoy fun-filled hours of street hockey in the Vernon Alliance Church parking lot off 43rd Avenue. â€œWeâ€™re planning to have three games going on at a time,â€? said JC Colvin, a former Medicine Hat Tiger goalie, and a member of the church helping the youth group. â€˜Itâ€™s open to kids and adults of all ages. There will be teams of four with one member of the (national junior A champion) Vipers or Knights (North Okanagan junior B team) on each team.â€? Former Edmonton Oiler first-round draft choice and retired NHLer Steve Kelly, now a permanent Vernon resident, has agreed to play. Colvin said Dean McAmmond of the New Jersey Devils, a Vernon summer resident, has donated a stick, and other prizes will be awarded during the day. â€œThere is no registration fee.

"AND BRINGS SPIRITED FUN TO &UNTASTIC No rest for Spirit of the West which should hit a home run at A&W Funtastic Music Festival JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
The A&W Funtastic Music Festival is bringing some west coast spirit to its lineup. Vancouver rock band Spirit of the West will be hitting the stage, entertaining thousands of slo-pitch players and fans with their iconic drinking song Home For a Rest. â€œIt will be a good outdoor summer show,â€? said the bandâ€™s drummer, Vince Ditrich. â€œJust lots and lots of fun.â€? Spirit of the West has been around since the late â€˜80s, touring the world with their folk, rock sound. Even though quite a bit has changed since then, the band still remains close, and come together for about 10 to 20 shows a year. â€œAs long as people are interested, weâ€™ll keep on doing it,â€? said Ditrich. But over the last couple of decades things have changed a bit. â€œWhen we started off none of us had kids,â€? said Ditrich. â€œNow it wonâ€™t be long before
one of us is a grandpa. Hopefully it will be Geoffrey (Kelly) first, heâ€™s the oldest.â€? So the days of perpetual touring, travelling all night and sleeping in crummy hotel rooms are over. â€œItâ€™s more fun in some ways. We get to stay in nicer hotels in our elderly years.â€? All the members of the band have other projects on the go. Ditrich has his own management company based on Vancouver Island where he lives. He has also begun to expand his creative abilities into writing. â€œIâ€™ve been writing for years. It just feels like a natural extension,â€? he said. But no matter what they do they always come back to Spirit of the West. â€œI was born a musician,â€? said Ditrich. â€œI do other things, but it always centers around music.â€? You just canâ€™t keep doing the same thing over and over and stay interested and interesting, he said. But audiences are still finding

Ditrich admits that he doesnâ€™t really have a favourite song to per-
form, but the fan favourite is clear. â€œHome For a Rest is definitely our best-known song. Itâ€™s the one people are the most reactive to,â€? he said.
The fans in Vernon will get the chance to enjoy it at the A&W Funtastic Music Festival. Spirit of the West will be headlining on Friday, July 2 at the DND grounds.
.AZARETH LOCAL BANDS JOIN IN ON THE ACT AT FESTIVAL KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Funtastic wouldnâ€™t be, well, Funtastic without a big party. And the Funtastic Sports Society, which hosts the annual slo-pitch tournament, is pumped for the A&W Funtastic Music Festival, which will see major headliners Spirit of the West and Nazareth take the stage on July 2 and July 3 respectively. With Spirit of the West expected to kick things into high gear with their Celtic-edged anthems, Scotlandâ€™s Nazareth will add a nostalgic flavour to the festival. Known for their popular covers of The Everly Brothersâ€™ Love Hurts and Joni Mitchellâ€™s This Flight Tonight, the band has been going strong since the â€˜70s with original singer Dan McCafferty and bassist Pete Agnew.
â€œNazareth came up and were available, and the neat thing is I donâ€™t think theyâ€™ve been here in Vernon before. Theyâ€™re from Scotland but they really made their name in Canada and have had many successful tours here,â€? said Funtastic music festival director Tim Reardon. On board with the Funtastic crew the past 10 years, Reardon has the arduous task of picking out the musical entertainment for the festival. â€œItâ€™s hard given the budget constraints of who we can bring and to find acts that we havenâ€™t had before. Luckily bands from the â€˜90s are now considered classic rock bands.â€? Just as important to the success of the festival are the number of local and valleybased acts who will perform throughout the weekend, he added. â€œWe pretty much have all local acts on
the Thursday night,â€? said Reardon. â€œWe have enough local bands that can do the job and that need the work. We always seem to have enough bands to book for the festival... Lots send promo material to me, and I apologize to the bands that didnâ€™t make it this time.â€? New to the program this year are up-andcoming young rockers Lucy and the Lucky Four, who open the festivities on Thursday night (Canada Day) along with The Dirt, Mace, and The Goods. Reardonâ€™s own band, The Youngâ€˜uns, who have played at Funtastic on and off since they first put on a dance in Lumby in the mid-â€™90s, are geared to take the stage Thursday after the fireworks light up the sky at 10 p.m. â€œThat will be a busy night. People are asked to watch for information about the park and ride. There should be a shuttle bus leaving from the recreation centre to
the DND grounds,â€? said Funtastic executive director Jim McEwan, adding the long-range forecast looks good for the long weekend. Opening for Spirit of the West on the Friday night is Kelownaâ€™s SilveRoad, plus local acts Orio, Channel Eight and Cold Driven. Kelowna cover band Papa Wheely, classic rock four-piece Out of Eden, who are actually out of Kelowna, plus Kelownabased tribute acts Love Gun, who will be in full makeup and regalia as KISS, and AC/ DC emulators High Voltage will open for Nazareth on the Saturday. All music starts nightly at 6 p.m. at the DND army camp grounds. Day passes are $15 for Thursday and $25 for Friday or Saturday. A three-day weekend pass is $45. They are available at A&W locations in Vernon at the Fruit Union Plaza and Anderson Way and in Armstrong.

Artist enters rabbit hole with exhibit Morning Star Staff
Some see them as cute, fuzzy, wuzzy pets, others see them as a nuisance for their rather habitual breeding habits. In western folklore, rabbits have played a curious role. They represent rebirth, renewal and fertility, and the happy, hypoglycemic Easter bunny is a key mythological figure: heralding in the spring by distributing fertility symbols (eggs) and aphrodisiacs (candy), says Vernon artist Amber Powell, who is unleashing her latest art exhibition, entitled Rabbit, Rabbit, White Rabbit at Gallery Vertigo this week. “Many, if not most, people assume that rabbits are good omens and bring good luck: for instance, one widely held tradition holds that if a person can remember to say ‘rabbit, rabbit, white rabbit’ or simply ‘rabbit, rabbit, rabbit’ upon waking up on the first day of each month, then that person is bound to have good luck,” she said. “Despite these friendly modern associations, however, rabbits are traditionally strong omens of bad luck and ill-will. They are evil animals.” The white rabbit incantation is not meant to bring luck, but is rather a spell to banish them and their foul influences from your life, explains Powell. “Rabbits are portents of death, fear, and violent change: if you see a rabbit running down

Toy Story 3: ★★★★★
he unbelievable success of Pixar is no fluke. This is a studio that redefines hard work. Every subject they take on, be it critters (A Bug’s Life), superheroes (The Incredibles) or Nascar (Cars) carries with it extensive and exhausting research. The result, each and every time without fail, are laughs, tears and, more often than not, the best movie of the year. Routinely. In re-visiting Toy Story, the task is all the more hefty. The 1995 original, after all, was the gem that started it all. The visually ground breaking and emotionally overwhelming masterpiece that not only put Pixar on the map, but set the bar for animated fare. 1999’s Toy Story 2 was a rarity for a sequel, it too, was near perfect. Thus, Toy Story 3 is not only Pixar’s annual quest to out-do itself, it runs the risk of messing up our favourite, or, as someone fittingly mentioned to me this week, “everyone’s baby.

reflecting on how painful it can be to put away your toys and say goodbye to childhood altogether. How a movie can so quickly and effortlessly shift from a playful romp to such a sentimental wallop is astounding. Amazingly fitting, too. For the many, many things I love about Toy Story 3, the biggest compliment I could ever give it, is this: it’s necessary. And it ain’t every day you can say THAT about a sequel!

Grit thatâ€™s good
July 30 - August 1, 2010
ernon-raised singer/songwriter Steve Brockleyâ€™s self-titled album was recorded in Montreal, but if you didnâ€™t know otherwise, it couldâ€™ve been in a log cabin in the woods. But thatâ€™s not a bad thing. Itâ€™s because this disc is as lo-fi and sparse as can be. The musicians are choosing this gritty vibe for its own charms as theyâ€™ve recorded all the songs live â€œon the floor.â€? This approach works, and it adds an unburnished glow to the material. Brockleyâ€™s songs fall into the roots/acoustic folk style that lends itself well to the intimate recording style.

Agriculture experience lands new post for Bullock JUDIE STEEVES Black Press
Kelowna orchardist Richard Bullock has been appointed both chairman of the Agricultural Land Commission and its chief executive officer. Bullock has been in agriculture all his life and has served on a number of industry boards, most recently as chairman of the B.C. Farm Industry Review Board (FIRB), where he has been a member for 12 years. Bullock says he has favoured the Agricultural Land Reserve since it was created in 1973 and believes it is necessary in this province to protect land for agriculture. â€œGod knows where we would be without it today. It would be a different landscape in this province,â€? he said. â€œWithout land, nothing else matters in agriculture,â€? he added. â€œAnd the good stuff lies close to people who want it for other purposes. Thatâ€™s life in our tight valleys.â€? Whether on Vancouver Island, the Fraser Valley or the Okanagan, he said development desires have put huge pressure on prime agricultural land. In his new position he will oversee the work of 19 land commissioners and 20 staff, although six of those commissioner positions are vacant right now, including two of the three Okanagan panel positions. Appointing new commissioners will not have anything to do with him, but he expects announcements on those vacancies shortly. He says he already began work this week, spending several days at the office in Burnaby, but mainly he will work out of his home office in Kelowna, as well as travelling throughout the province. His first task will be to get to know the position, although he doesnâ€™t expect the work will be at all strange to him, after his time on the FIRB. Over the years, he says the issues havenâ€™t really changed all that much, although theyâ€™re much more complex. As well, he noted, peo-
ple have far more resources with which to argue their case today, with the internet as a resource. All in all, he says itâ€™s an
interesting position, with some complex issues and tough decisions to make. He says heâ€™s used to facing opposition, so the
fact the ALR has many opponents doesnâ€™t faze him. The ALC is an independent administrative
tribunal responsible for administering the provinceâ€™s ALR. The commissionâ€™s mission is to preserve agricultural
land and encourage and enable farm businesses throughout B.C. The ALR is the largest it has ever been in its his-
tory, with more than 4.7 million hectares set aside for farming. For more information, visit www. alc.gov.bc.ca.

Asian insect threatens Okanagan Valley soft fruit JUDIE STEEVES Black Press
Soft fruit that you don’t eat should be bagged, buried or frozen rather than tossed out the window, into the garbage or in the compost. That’s the message from orchardists and grape growers facing the potential loss of an entire crop of fruit to a new insect pest which enters the valley in fruit such as cherries, plums, grapes, strawberries, raspberries and blueberries. The spotted wing drosophila is a vinegar fly, similar to a fruit fly, that feeds on rotting fruit but lays its eggs on ripening fruit, destroying it for market. Organic fruit grower and entomologist Linda Edwards says growers have concerns about fruit which is coming in from California now and berries coming from the Fraser Valley in the coming weeks. If you buy fruit which is bad and compost it, you could find your raspberry patch is infested with inedible fruit at harvest time, she warns. Similarly, you could cause the infestation of a commercial operation if you permit eggs in soft fruit that you don’t eat, to develop. Prevent that by freezing the fruit for two days, or securely bagging it in plastic before throwing it away. Discovery of this Asian pest for the first time last year in the Fraser Valley and in the Kelowna area is said by some people to have marked “the end of fruit growing as we know it,” because it has such potential for devastation, right in the last few days before harvest, when most conventional pesticides can’t be used against it. “It’s a very frightening pest,” commented Edwards. There can be eight to 13 generations in a year, compared to the most serious pest of cherries, the cherry fruit fly, which has only one. “We need to change how we handle fruit waste,” advised Edwards.
Cherry grower Christine Dendy says they are hopeful the new pest will not overwinter in the Okanagan, but it will in the warmer Fraser Valley, so now each spring growers here will have to monitor for it.
“It’s a very frightening pest.” — Linda Edwards “Public cooperation will be important, since drosophila will even
infest wild Saskatoon berries,” she noted. From there it can move on to
commercial farms. Monitoring traps have been placed around the valley, and so far this spring two flies have been caught, one in a Kelowna-area orchard and another in an Oyama orchard. Agriculture ministry
entomologist Susanna Acheampong says 300 monitoring traps have gone into orchards and some into back yards, while grocery stores and fruit stands are also being monitored. A weekly monitoring report will go
out to growers in the Okanagan. Brochures are available for growers as well as for homeowners and gardeners, and there are more details on the ministry website at: .agf.gov.bc.ca/cropprot/ swd_brochure.

Involve yourself in as many progressive, creative endeavors as you can in the year ahead, either in your vocation or in simply doing something for yourself. It could be one of the strongest ways to bring you recognition and praise.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Do not be too insistent about getting your way. Even if others give in to your wishes, chances are they wonâ€™t do things the way you want and you wonâ€™t like it one bit.
CANCER (June 21-July 22) Steer clear of any political conversations with those who are passionate about their views, if their opinions conflict with yours. What should be a debate will turn into a heated debacle.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Take things slowly because if you try to rush, working under such pressure, youâ€™ll end up being all thumbs and really mess things up. Critical tasks will quickly pile up.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Donâ€™t break down and dip into funds that are earmarked for paying off some old obligations. If you do, you will quickly find yourself in big financial trouble, which will be difficult to extricate yourself from. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Itâ€™s best not to be shy about making a decision, because there will always be someone who will quickly snatch that choice away from you. I guarantee you this person will feather his/her own nest. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Instead of doing the work you need to accomplish, you are likely to find every excuse in the book not to do so. Added delay will only enhance your lack of progress. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) This is not a good day to take chances when you know the odds are stacked against you. You could end up talking yourself into a very sticky situation. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be absolutely certain that what you go after is worthy of all the effort it will take for you to achieve it. You could put yourself out only to find winning holds no value. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Responding out of anger could cause much regret the moment the words are out of your mouth, especially if the target is someone you donâ€™t want to offend or cross. Bite your tongue. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your judgment is likely to be faulty in those very areas where you usually have keen evaluation. If it has anything to do with money, examine closely whatever it is you think you want.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If youâ€™re not careful, there is a good chance someone within your work circle will attempt to manipulate you to do something thatâ€™ll be to his/ her advantage. Forewarned is forearmed. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Running too tight a ship either at home or at work will create more headaches than it solves. Discipline has its place, provided it is carried with consideration and concern for others well-being.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ďŹ‚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.

DOMINION XTERIORS Ltd. Moderately Confused
Primrose Rooﬁng Ltd. Call Someone You Can Trust!
Bridge by Phillip Alder Margaret Drabble, an English novelist, biographer and critic, asked: “Why can’t people be both ﬂexible and efﬁcient?” In this week’s columns, we have been looking at defensive signaling requiring ﬂexibility of thought. Here is another example. How should the defenders card to defeat four spades after West guesses well to lead the heart ace? When South jumps to four spades, he ought to have at least a ﬁve-card suit, because North might have raised with threecard support. With only four spades, South should rebid three no-trump. Then, if North has four spades, he will correct to game in that suit.
East thinks he can see four defensive tricks: the ace-king of hearts and ace-king of spades. But, at trick one, because he does not have the heart queen, his natural reaction is to play the three. With this layout, though, that would probably let the contract through. West would likely shift to a diamond. (Readers of yesterday’s column saw a deal in which North had the identical hand, and a diamond switch at trick two was the only way to defeat the contract.) Here, East knows that a minor-suit shift will serve no purpose. He should encourage West to continue hearts, signaling enthusiastically with his nine.
East will be disappointed when West next leads the heart two, not the king, but his frustration will be shortlived. East will take the ﬁrst trump trick and give West a heart ruff. The defenders will take one heart, two spades and that ruff.

Fundraiser will be Chillin’ for Chile Morning Star Staff
A Vernon man with Chilean roots is using his expertise to help Chile after the earthquake there earlier this year. Jorge Sepulveda, a Canadian whose father is from Chile, is the owner of Andes EXP Services. The company has 20 years experience working in Northern B.C. and the Andes in backcountry construction for business, exploration and recreation activities. He has already taken a team of Vernon residents to help with reconstruction and his goal is to provide 1,000 emergency shelters. “This project is designed to help Chile in four ways,” wrote Sepulveda. “The introduction of a new technology and the sharing of knowledge and information and providing Chile with an alternative to their current emergency shelter design, as well as providing earthquake survivors with short- to

subsidy applications and finishes the construction of permanent homes,
which could take as long as five years, and restore and maintain dignity to those affected by the earthquake.” Chilean construction workers are being trained to use the technology for future building, giving them a valuable employment skill. The Feb. 27 earthquake is the fifth largest earthquake ever recorded, measuring 8.8 on the Richter scale. The damage caused by the earthquake was one thing, but for coastal settlements the ensuing 65-foot-plus tsunami wave that followed 20 minutes later was even more devastating. In some areas, the ocean flowed 12 K upriver. The Chillin’ for Chile fundraiser to help Sepulveda with his work will take place Sunday from noon to 6 p.m. at Polson Park.

Time to lock up those valuables
ear Annie: Last week, our 22-year-old grandson flew in for a visit from college. We celebrated with lots of barbecues and swimming. The entire family was here for the weekend — our older son, his live-in girlfriend and her 17-year-old daughter, along with our younger son, his wife and their three teenage girls. On the morning of my grandson’s departure, he noticed that a $100 bill from his wallet was missing. He also found a hair barrette on the floor near the dresser. The 17-year-old is the only child who wore barrettes. But our 16-year-old granddaughter has a history of lying. None of the bedroom doors has a lock, and with all the

Unless entered the you want this to bedroom become an issue and stolen every time you the money. see the family, We reimyou will have to bursed our let it go.

I am ready to take whatever action is necessary to get the magazines out of my home, even if it means I have to do it without his knowledge. I know more will take their place. — Hate the Trash Dear Hate: It’s possible these magazines may someday be worth money, but probably not as much as your husband believes. Suggest he check out their value online, and if he still plans to sell them, they need to be in good condition, not scattered around the house. Tell him to rent storage space elsewhere, or you will throw them out. Then he can decide how much they are worth to him. Dear Annie: Your
response to “Concerned Grandparent” really aggravated me. She asked whether a 7-yearold girl was right to tell Dad that she saw her mom kissing another man. I agree that a 7-year-old couldn’t possibly know what sort of response is appropriate. However, you blamed Dad for not controlling his emotional outburst, which was directed at the child. At no point did you address the cheating wife. She is the only guilty party in the entire mess. The father’s reaction was understandable. But it’s the mother who caused the problem. Quit covering for the bad behavior of cheating wives. — Lafayette, Ind. Dear Lafayette: No one’s covering for anybody. The question was how to help the child.
After three years, Dad still cannot control his reaction in front of his daughter, which makes her feel responsible. The entire family needs help.
Biodanza is a form of expression through music, dance and exercises from South America in which healthy bodies, minds, relationships and aesthetic satisfaction for all may be achieved. The Biodanza group meets Mondays at 7:30 p.m. at the Okanagan Centre for Spiritual Living, and facilitator Marian Starkenbrug said more people are needed who can be trained to lead classes. “In the Netherlands, I was introduced to Biodanza, a practice that is not only good exercise, but also has very therapeutic properties and really leaves you feeling renewed and empowered,” she said. “It is similar to mindfulness meditation and yoga in its philosophy, but easier to practise in that it does not involve sitting still for prolonged periods nor the contortion of the body into impossible poses.” Starkenbrug introduced the practice to Vernon last year and said it is used around the world in a variety of settings for people of all ages and all body types seeking ways to nurture happiness and wellbeing. Biodanza was developed in the 1960s by Rolando Toro Araneda, a Chilean clinical psychologist and anthropologist. In an effort to humanize psychiatric practice, he began investigating the effect of music and dance on psychiatric patients at the Psychiatric Hospital of Santiago, and found that certain movements and exercises accompanied by music not only improved mood and negative symptoms, but also positive symptoms. If you are involved in the dance community and want to bring more meaning to motion, if you work with groups of people in health care or schools or are generally interested in wellness practices, Biodanza can be used independently or as a com-

A dream begins to come true Kevin Leask credits his local teachers for their devotion to the joy of performing Morning Star Staff
Kevin Leask was just eight years old when he began readying, studying and performing the works of William Shakespeare. So when he performs at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre next year, it’s safe to say it’s a dream come true for the graduate of Pleasant Valley secondary school. Now in his last term at Randolph Academy of Performing Arts (RAPA) in Toronto, Leask has just been accepted into the Masters of Classical and Contemporary Text (Acting) program at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama, where he will begin his studies in September. Following the ninemonth program in Glasgow, Leask will spend three months in London, where he will study and perform at Shakespeare’s Globe. “When you’re young, Cinderella tells us that a dream is a wish our heart makes. Now that we’re older of course, we know that she was talking about the lucid dream...a place where anything is possible,” said Leask. “But what of the waking world where our society finds itself as much assaulted as convenienced by the sense of regularity and ease we have attained? “Here, fine art is the one refuge where anything is still possible. It remains to be the one place where fun
Kevin Leask as Mr. Gardiner in Pride and Prejudice. is unbridled and, yet, where an individual can still make a difference in the lives of the populous.” In addition to his own talent and hard work, Leask’s journey has been made possible through the support of a number of individuals in the community who have supported and encouraged him along the way. In illustrating his appreciation for his teachers, Leask offers a quote by Oro Silverati: “If by chance you find yourself oppressed in some employ, we pray you’ll not forget the gift that no bully can destroy. For play is more than a childhood game, much more than a fancy’s toy. It is a way to find a way, to heal, release, bring joy.” The Twins is Italian playwright Silverati’s rebellion against those who seek to oppress the artists of tomorrow by bringing significance to performing art, said Leask. “He strives to denounce those that attempt to encour-

age those same young adults to settle for less than they are capable by
countering with love, freedom and knowledge,” he said. “Janet Gillis and Jim Howie of PVSS, the staff of Accentz Dance Studio, Sarah Mori, and Paul and Melina Moore were to me what Oro Silverati was to the theatrical community of Italy. “I use this comparison not simply because these people are extremely talented at what they do — which they are — but because, like Silverati, they are forging new ground. Outside of high schools in the east specifically devoted to musical theatre, their devotion to the joy of performing and the integration of technique remain completely unparalleled.”
At Randolph Academy, Leask is completing a diploma in performing arts: singing, dancing and acting for film, TV and stage. Meanwhile, before heading to his new life in Scotland, Leask is in rehearsals for RAPA’s upcoming production of My Favourite Year. “All of this is a direct result of both hard work and talented instructors,” he said. “Dreams do come true. Enable them. “Support the artists of tomorrow by aiding the students and teachers of today.”

Denis George Hardy was born May 19th, 1930 in Cowansville, Quebec and died peacefully on June 16th, 2010 in Vernon, B.C. with his family members by his side. Denis will be lovingly remembered by his family and friends. He is survived by Freeda, his wife of 52 years and children; Elizabeth Anne (Don), Paul (Cathy), Jennifer (Andrew) and Janet. “Doodie” will be greatly missed by his grandchildren Alistair, Jocelyn, Theo, Clara, Nate, Camille, Pippa, Sebastian, Julian and Owen. Denis lived for many years in Deep River, Ontario, working as an engineer for Atomic Energy of Canada. In retirement he lived in Calgary, Alberta and Vernon, British Columbia. Denis loved the outdoors. He was passionate about nordic skiing, mountain biking and paddling. He was an avid bird and wildlife watcher as well as a keen history and aviation buff. His greatest love however, was family. He spent countless hours over the years captivating his children and grandchildren with stories and reading, and always had time for one more chapter. “What doin’ Doodie?” We miss you so much. Those wishing to honour Denis’ memory by way of donation may do so to the Heart and Stroke foundation.

He loved to read Louie L’Amour books and was an avid crossword solver.

KAMINSKI We regret to announce the death at Polson North Care Unit of Vernon Jubilee Hospital, on June 12, 2010, of Alfred Kaminski, at the age of 80 years. Fred was born in Vernon, and was a well known businessman in the Okanagan area for many years. He started Town and Country Tree Service Ltd. in 1955 and operated it until 1995. In his youth, Fred was a member of the British Columbia Dragoons for some years, and more recently became a member of the Vernon Flying Club, in addition to volunteering at the Schubert Centre. Fred will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by his children; son, Alan of Vernon and grandchildren Aaronn and Richard (Kim); daughter, Bev (Les) Ross of Kamloops and grandchildren Lisa and Lila; and daughter, Barb Field (Dave Morrison) of Kamloops and granddaughter Kaleigh Field. He is also survived by brother Ed (Wilma); sisters Winnie, Millie (Bill), Jean (Norm), Joan (Bill) and Ena (Chuck), and his good friend and companion Mary Wetherill, and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Saturday, June 26, at 2:00 p.m., in the chapel of Pleasant Valley Funeral Home, with Mr. Lloyd Klein ofÀciating.

WILSON-JIMMY, Maria (nee Saddleman) It is with great sorrow that the Saddleman and Wilson families announce the passing of their beloved “Mama” on Monday, June 21, 2010, after many years of struggling with Lupus. She is survived by her husband Stephen and her sisters Lucy and Josephine and her brothers Emery and Ranger. Her children Veronica (Roger), Nadine, Debbie and David. Her Grandchildren, Nicole, Laura, Holly, Lindsey, Brittany, Natalie, Lloyd, Rosie, Rosalie, Michael, Morgan and Chenoa. Her great-grandchildren, Cameron, Jacob, Dante, Shia, Kianna and Keenan. She was predeceased by her brother Albert Saddleman. She was born on Oct 21, 1937 in Vernon, B.C. to Albert and Della Saddleman (nee Armstrong). Our mama loved to care for people and it inspired her to become a Registered Nurse after she ﬁnished raising her children. She worked in Kamloops for many years at the Phoenix Centre before moving back home to Vernon. There she was able to be with and help nurture her many grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. She loved them all in her own way and it was evident by the countless photographs she has of them all. Wake to be held at the Head of the Lake Hall, Friday June25, 2010 and Service to be held at St. Benedicts at 2:00 pm on Saturday June 26, 2010.
