News Veterans, rookies having Funtastic time BRENT MUTIS AND ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Chucks Norii third baseman Danica Howlett winds up for a throw to second as Tyler Hughes backs up the play during Funtastic slo-pitch tournament action Friday at the DND grounds. back to the basics.� For players like Kube and Howlett, slo-pitch is only half the attraction of Funtastic. “We’re definitely coming (to the entertainment area) tonight,� said Kube Friday morning. “Spirit of the West is playing tonight and I hear they’re pretty good.� Howlett has been living in Canada for just 18 months so is still getting to know the Interior. “It’s my second time only to the Okanagan,� she said. “It’s beautiful country out here and were just having a great long weekend.� Wes Whitely, of Fort

St. James, has been coming to Funtastic since the 1980s with various players from B.C.’s northcentral region. “I think that’s the last time we won a game, too, was in the 1980s,� joked the amiable Whitely, 48, a hotel/motel manager and mill employee in the Fort while dodging a foul ball hit at him and a reporter by Jo from Mission’s Green Scum team. This weekend,Whitely – known as the Lone Ranger on his Cowboys and Indians team – has brought with him players from the Fort, Prince George, and Burns Lake area, and supplemented

the roster with former Fort residents now residing in the Okanagan, including a newspaper reporter. “That’s why we’re down here, to see you,� said ageless shortstop Alec (Apache Kid) McKinnon, 37, to the reporter, teammates in Fort St. James in 1997 and ‘98. So what keeps bringing players like McKinnon and Whitely back to Funtastic, making the 11-hour trip from the north? “My 2004 Ford pickup, that’s what keeps bringing us down,� said Whitely, drawing laughs

from his teammates. “No, seriously, Funtastic is just that. It’s been Funtastic every year we’ve come. The beer garden is great, the social aspect is great and I get to see my

daughter who lives in Kelowna.� Funtastic is also being played in Enderby and Armstrong. Games wrap up in all three cities today.

The pings of bat meeting ball and lusty cheers erupting from the droves of quasi-serious athletes in all manner of regalia signifies that the 26th Funtastic slopitch tournament is well underway. Virtually every softball field in Vernon, and even some temporary diamonds, are continually hosting games for four straight days. It’s become one of the biggest tournaments of its kind in North America and that has teams returning year after year to get in on the fun. “We’ve been coming for four years,� said Calgary squad In The Band’s manager Wayne Kube. “We just have a great time and catch a little bit of sun and maybe win the odd ball game.� Kube, who pitched a complete game in his team’s 15-9 win Friday morning, says Funtastic is a family affair for his team with wives, husbands, children, in-laws and other friends coming out to cheer them on. “My wife’s probably the loudest one,� said Kube, who felt his team was rounding into form after an opening game loss. Kube’s group usually rents a house by the water during Funtastic and enjoys relaxing between games. “We usually sit at the house and drink a few pops,� he said. “You know, get us in game shape for next game.� First-time Funtastic participant Danica

The chairman of the North Okanagan Regional District believes the City of Vernon will have a tough time collecting bus fare from all of its directors. The city, at its last regular council meeting, agreed to fund expansion of B.C. Transit’s UBC Okanagan route, doubling the runs from four to eight and adding a second bus. All UBCO routes will also include stops at the Kelowna Airport. The cost of adding four runs and a second bus, without the regional district on board, would be approximately $100,400 for Vernon, and that could rise to $116,400 without a $16,000 contribution from the District of Lake Country. Had the regional district agreed to expansion, they would have contributed $88,400, the City of Vernon would chip in $12,000, Lake Country would likely make a donation of $16,000 and the District of Coldstream would add $3,600. While the city agreed to the expansion, several councillors felt that the regional district should also kick in some cash. “I can’t speak for all of the directors on this subject, only for electoral area F, but we all bellied up and supported the first bus,” said Grindrod’s Herman Halvorson, NORD chair. “As for the second bus, I don’t think I have any residents or have heard of any resident that even ride any bus or the first bus. “I would have trouble funding the second bus from my area F perspective.” The District of Coldstream believes the additional UBCO runs make sense, but wants some statistical verification. “We want to get back some information from B.C. Transit on what the ridership is,” said Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick. “It’s one thing to take word-of-mouth that it’s full all the time. We want to see some actual numbers, where the people riding the bus are coming from and how many are on there.” B.C. Transit said expanding the route was the top priority in the province due to significant demand. Garlick wants to see his district invited to transit conversations with the authority. “As a partner, we haven’t been included in B.C. Transit initiatives when they change things,” he said. “Just to send us the bills isn’t enough.” To justify the UBCO expansion, Garlick believes regional co-operation will be needed. Mike Gavinchuk, NORD area B BX-Swan Lake and Commonage director, plans to make a contribution. “I could see where people from Enderby and Lumby don’t want to chip in because anybody travelling from there, once they’re in the car it’s only

Star sports section scores silver ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Strong stories coupled with equally strong photography. Just two of the reasons why The Morning Star’s sports pages were named second-best in the country in the Canadian Community Newspaper Association’s 2010 Better Newspapers Competition. Sports editor Kevin Mitchell and reporter Graeme Corbett were honoured with the second-place finish in the best sports pages category for newspapers with a circulation of 12,500 and over. “This was a strong series of sports pages from The Morning Star,

“This was a strong series of sports pages.” — Terry Frey particularly with outstanding photography and an interesting mix of stories from a variety of sports,” wrote judge Terry Frey. The Morning Star was sandwiched in between two papers from Alberta, the winning Saint City News of St. Albert, and the Sherwood Park News, which placed third. The Morning Star was also the recipient of a prestigious Blue Ribbon award in general excellence for its circulation class of 25,000

and over, along with other Black Press papers from Abbotsford, South Surrey, Nanaimo and North Delta. Blue Ribbons are awarded by judges to all finalists in the general excellence category, as well as deserving of honourable mention. “This is a testament to all of the hard work by everybody at the paper,” said Morning Star managing editor Glenn Mitchell. “To be recognized as one of the top community papers in

the country is quite an accomplishment.” The best all-round paper in the category went to the Mississauga (Ont.) News, while B.C. papers North Shore News (North Vancouver) and Abbotsford News (Black Press) finished second and third, respectively. The Canadian Community Newspapers Association encourages excellence by sponsoring an annual national competition to celebrate the achievements of its member newspapers.

Newspapers compete against other newspapers of similar circulation for awards in such categories as editorial, photography, advertising and special promotion. In addition, newspapers compete in the general excellence competition, which recognizes newspapers for the best editorial page, best front page and best all-round newspaper. Newspapers in the top one-third of entries are awarded a Blue Ribbon.

No contact rules in place for suspect CHERYL WIERDA Black Press

Joelon Verma appeared baffled at times during his brief court appearance by video Friday morning, looking over to a sheriff sitting with him as a judge discussed the Crown’s application that the accused killer not have contact with nine people. The application had first been brought before the court on Tuesday but it was adjourned to Friday because Verma, accused of first degree murder and robbery of Brittney Irving, wanted to have a lawyer represent him on the application. However, Verma, 29, does not yet have a lawyer, and when asked about the Crown’s request that he not have contact with a number of individuals, he said: “Some of them being my family, I’ll

have to let my lawyer deal with it.” However, Judge Vincent Hogan put the no contact order in place until Verma’s next court appearance, at which point his lawyer can address the issue. Verma was arrested June 25, more than 11 weeks after 24-year-old Brittney Irving didn’t return from a meeting, allegedly with Verma, to sell a “large quantity” of marijuana. Her SUV was found

abandoned on Philpott Road the next day, April 7, after she had been reported missing. Police announced on May 25 that her body had been found, and

although they did not say where she had been found, they said later it was not near her vehicle. Verma is scheduled to return to court July 22.

“I’m a much different person than I was.”

The

The checkerboard stage, graffiti and black lights give Vernon’s Teen Junction Youth Centre the feel of an underground blues lounge but the life lessons gained there prove it’s something much more vital. All youth attend voluntarily and often come from an upbringing that included little in the way of family support so the centre feels like a new home. “We’re really close,” says Krissy Schoenknecht, who has been coming to the junction for three years. “It’s kind of like a big family.” Many of the kids have been homeless and battled addiction but have turned their lives in a positive direction since getting involved in the centre’s activities. Before she joined Junction, which offers extracurricular activities on a drop-in basis for at-risk youth aged 14 to 18, Schoenknecht didn’t have a home and was using drugs and alcohol as a way of coping. “I’m now in foster care, I’m back to school, I’m getting a summer job,” says the Clarence Fulton Grade 11 student. “I’m a much different person than I was three years ago by far.” School used to be an afterthought at one time but that has changed too. “I love school now, I used to hate it,” she admits. “I matured; I — Schoenknecht knew I had to change because I would have gone a totally different way. I don’t even know where I’d be.” Recently, Schoenknecht and some of her Junction friends got a chance to show what they’ve learned while completing examinations of homelessness and addiction in the area. An audience of people from several community groups took in the presentations. Schoenknecht and partner Jade Adie looked at what under-housed youth must overcome to secure shelter in Vernon. They pointed out that the public generally associate homelessness with adulthood. While there are many shelter options, not all provide the right fit for younger people, the girls discovered. Safe House currently has just five beds, they learned, Kekuli Centre’s waiting list is lengthy, Transition House is not meant for youth and landlords rarely rent to teenagers. “Some kids can’t get into school or work,” noted Schoenknecht. “And for income assistance you have to be 18 or older.” Seeing the kids spend time learning about their community’s challenges has been rewarding for Junction director Michelle Freebairn. “It’s nice to see them getting engaged in the community,” she said, adding they put a team in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay For Life for the second straight year. Freebairn believes the presentations represent significant growth for kids like Schoenknecht who may

Deja vu all over again

I

know they say everything old is one day new again but lately I’ve been getting a real sense of deja vu on a regular basis. I mean I like time warps and retro days as much as the next guy but it’s starting to get spooky..... .....Smiling Bill Vander Zalm and his anti-HST campaign has been around for awhile now but seeing him in his glory delivering box after box of petitions to the Elections BC office in Victoria got me thinking I’ve seen this movie somewhere before. Clearly enjoying the attention of the media once again, the Zalm is truly leading the populous movement. And this time the former premier doesn’t have to bother with silly Glenn Mitchell things like running the government of the day, or representing actual constituents or answer any questions about some stupid scandal the damn media has dug up. Now I like Bill and he has more charisma than any leader on the British Columbian or Canadian political scene for the last decade, and there’s a reason why he’s become the face of this tax revolt (and not the NDP and Carole James), he’s good at this kind of stuff and very likable. Not to mention it’s much easier running a campaign against an unpopular tax (has anybody heard of a popular one?) that the Liberals and their out-of-touch leader tried to sneak in while we weren’t looking last summer. Gee, that strategy kind of backfired, eh backroom boys? I mean they likely knew it would spark protests but, hey, it’s the beginning of the term they’ll forget about it come election time, it’s summertime, who’s paying attention anyway, and who’s going to take us on, the NDP? Wrong, wrong and wrong. And then along came Bill. He did an amazing job. I’m just not sure what comes next. Hats off to him for tapping into the discontent and disconnect with the Liberals but the irony of

MITCHELL’S MUSINGS

all this shouldn’t be lost on everyone should it? I mean Vander Zalm, the former Socred premier who brought in the property purchase tax, aligned with the NDP, who normally never met a tax they didn’t like, to form the anti-tax side against the Liberals, who have consistently cut taxes since they came to office much to the chagrin of, well, the NDP and its supporters? But of course it’s all about perception in politics and what you’ve done lately, so it should be an interesting battle and who knows how it will all turn out..... .....maybe Vander Zalm could stage a HST protest rally at Empire Stadium. Yes, the same Empire Stadium they tore down shortly after the B.C. Lions moved to B.C. Place Stadium after the 1982 CFL season. Well, it’s been rebuilt, to a smaller scale, for the Lions while B.C. Place goes under massive reconstruction, including a retractable roof. Again, it’s ironic as I remember that one of the reasons that B.C. Place was built was because you couldn’t count on Vancouver weather. And now all these decades later they’re back at the Empire and people are raving about the view of the Lions and the open-air feel and tickets are being scooped up in excitement? Meanwhile the cold, concrete edifice that is B.C. Place has to go through an expensive renovation just so it is more open to the elements that supposedly we were trying to get away from in the first place all those years ago? What happens after they spend all that money and the Lions decide they have it too good at Empire? It could happen, the Alouettes abandoned Olympic Stadium in Montreal years ago for the friendly confines at McGill and have never looked back. Arrrrrrgggggghhhhhhh......... All of this retro activity, and its ironic overtones, could have one pulling out one’s hair in frustration (if one had any hair), but it’s better to laugh a little, keep smiling and wonder what possibly could be next in this trip we call life. Maybe Bill Bennett and the Pacific Coliseum?

As the 26th annual Funtastic slo-pitch tournament comes to another successful conclusion today, it’s worth noting what the festival has brought to the North Okanagan every Canada Day weekend for all these years. Of course there’s the fun on the field, in the beverage gardens and at the entertainment venues throughout the weekend as people gather together in the spirit of good times and enjoying an Okanagan summer with family and friends. The event brings in people from all over Western Canada and provides just one more reason why this is a great place to visit and an even better place to live. The dollars alone that Funtastic brings into the North Okanagan in the form of revenue for hotels, restaurants and gas stations is impressive enough. However then there’s the cash raised for non-profit groups that help staff the event through helping park cars, serve drinks and cater to all the participants’ needs. Not to mention the funds that Funtastic dishes out to sports organizations through their legacy fund and the money they have already spent on playing fields and committed to a future recreation area, possibly at the Kin Park site. And to think this is all accomplished by having fun every Canada Day weekend. A winwin for everyone if there ever was one. Of course it takes thousands of volunteer hours by a dedicated board to pull it off every year, so it’s only right to tip the baseball cap to all those involved and say congratulations on a job well done. It’s truly a Funtastic event.

Look at the broader picture

I

n The Morning Star a few weeks ago, a man wrote in with a brilliant (not) idea that would relieve the water shortage concerns in Vernon area. He wanted to divert an actual river so he could enjoy more water to fill his pool. Recently, another brilliant person has also requested that an entire natural watershed system be diverted to satisfy his needs. Neither of them has for one instant thought over the repercussions to the natural flora and fauna; salmon, wildlife or forestation that depends on having the ecosystem run the exact way nature intended

TAX WOES During the height of the recession in 2009, Armstrong city council raised property taxes 2.47 per cent. Along with regional and school tax increases, our property taxes rose a whopping 4.27 per cent. Then, through the back door, Armstrong city council snuck in a “New Recreation Parcel Tax.” Once again, during the height of the recession, and without public notification or consultation. In other words, without a mandate. Last December, Armstrong City Council publicly lambasted the huge, obscene wage increase the North Okanagan Regional Library Board voted in for its staff. This year, these defenders of the public purse....quietly voted themselves a 16 per cent wage increase. This year, with many residents still without jobs, EI benefits exhausted, and retirement income at an all time low, council has raised property taxes another 4.38 per cent. Along with regional and school tax increases, our property taxes rose a whopping 5.68 per cent in 2010, for a two year total of 9.95 per cent plus the sneaky “Recreation Parcel Tax.” Armstrong has a population of less than 5,000, with approximately 2,500 voters. In other words, we are a very small community. Now, this very same council wants to borrow $437,000 of an estimated $750,000 to install water meters in our homes. Once again, no public discus-

and that it is the human parasite who has to stop their nasty infestation of the area in order to alleviate the problem of water shortage. Can't you people get it through your heads that this planet is not yours. We are merely borrowing it from our grandchildren and their children. More importantly, it also belongs to the salmon, the bear, the crow, the deer, the trees; everything that inhales and exhales, as well as every animal you complain about every day who are trespassing on what you deem your property.

sion, consultation, or mandate. Here’s the real kicker: they haven’t the guts to put it to a public referendum! Instead, they want to use the so-called “Alternate Approval Process” whereby at least 10 per cent of residents would have to sign a petition to axe borrowing the money. Moreover, there isn’t a jurisdiction in this country where water metering hasn’t meant huge tax increases (just ask the citizens of Vernon). By employing this process, council hopes no one will take up the challenge of putting together the necessary petition drive. Once again this irresponsible council is out of touch with reality. I will take up the challenge and we, the over-burdened tax payers of Armstrong, will defeat the borrowing of almost a half million dollars, and we will defeat the expenditure of $750,000 for the water meters no one wants. Armstrong voters, when the time comes, if you wish to sign the Petition, please email me at: armstrongpetition@hotmail.com. Robert Thibeau PRISON BLUES My wife and I always dreamed of moving to the Okanagan. A great opportunity came our way two years ago and we took the plunge and bought our first home. It was in a small idyllic mountain town, Lumby. Fresh air, lakes, outdoor recreation of all types and best of all, as stated in the Chamber of Commerce pamphlet, a back

road to Silver Star Mountain. We would be 15 minutes from a great ski hill and all the amenities and jobs it provides. My in-laws, who are nearing a very comfortable retirement, began to immerse themselves into Lumby and looking for their retirement home, visiting open houses on their many weekend visits. With our first child on the way our future in Lumby looked bright. Then I read The Morning Star headline "Lumby Puts Prison on Economic Agenda." I felt like I had been kicked in the stomach. A back road to Silver Star would increase my property value, a prison in town, the opposite. I called my in-laws who were extremely disappointed and thankful they had not put in an offer on a Lumby home. My great uncle was the mayor of our hometown and the one golden rule of municipal politics always stuck with me. It is not the job of the council to create jobs; it is their job to create an environment where entrepreneurs can create jobs. A back road to Silver Star Mountain would give the residents of Lumby access to the many jobs the mountain, restaurants and rental properties create. It would also encourage real estate development and send property values soaring. People don`t build million dollar log homes in prison towns, but they do in ski villages and Lumby has three log home

building companies. A prison flies in the face of everything the Lumby chamber of commerce told us, which convinced us to buy in Lumby. Lumby is too small to absorb the rise in drug trafficking that inherently comes with a corrections facility, let alone the myriad of other problems associated with prisons. Let's get Lumby back involved with Funtastic, build a back road, a hotel and spa or seniors centres. Forget the prison and let’s get on with developing a Lumby that maximizes its amazing natural beauty and potential. Let's try and attract wealthy retirees and rich tourists. To put it succinctly, no prison means our family spends money on property and development. If a prison does come my family moves. Mike Mailloux A GREAT SCHOOL We are parents of two very active boys that have attended Alexis Park Elementary for almost four years. I wanted to take a moment to say a huge thank you to all the staff at Alexis Park. The staff 's dedication to teaching not only the curriculum but life skills, social skills, responsibility, consequences, hygiene, kindness and the best six steps of problem solving that we've have ever seen. Words can't say how grateful we are to all the extra time and effort

that enabled our boys to see such success on so many levels. We are moving and our hope is that our boys' next school will have at least half of the dedication and ability to handle all the challenges the government keeps piling on them. Many thanks with the biggest to Jennifer Gardner who is tireless. Sandra Kubbemus and Jack Ward

New road signs in Coldstream will encourage motorists to share the road but one councillor feels an opportunity was lost to market the district at the same time. Council approved a recommendation to increase the size of the signs reminding drivers of horse riders, joggers and cyclists. But Coun. Maria Besso believes the signs could have been more attractive and push the rural identity of Coldstream. “I had suggested sandblasted signs that were more decorative,” said Besso. “What had come back from engineering was like highway signs. “I would have preferred the more aesthetically pleasing sign that would have conveyed the message.” Such signs would have been costlier and Mayor Jim Garlick was glad to avoid the spending. “It does serve the purpose of other users of the roads,” said Garlick. “I’d suggest it would be a lot more money (though).” Besso had been picking up on a suggestion from the district’s agricultural advisory committee aimed at branding the community to visitors. But the majority of council felt simplicity was

Question

Governments chip in fruit funding Morning Star Staff

Federal and provincial governments have teamed up to invest $5 million in support of the tree fruit industry. This funding aims to deliver results for farmers by helping to develop new marketing opportunities, infrastructure, and further improve orchard pest management. “Canada’s Economic Action Plan is putting farmers first, by helping to increase production and sales, and creating more opportunities for farmers to get their product to market,” said Stockwell Day, President of the Treasury Board and Minister for the Asia-Pacific Gateway, on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz. “This investment will allow the tree fruit industry to find new technologies that will help them stay ahead of the curve in the global market.” The province announced $2 million in funding, and the federal government will provide an investment of $3 million more. This combined funding will be used for new environmentally friendly packing and storage infrastructure, marketing opportunities that raise the profile of fresh and processed apples, and to build on work accomplished by the sterile insect release program in the Okanagan and Kootenay regions. “This is a significant investment that will give tree fruit growers in this province the innovative edge they need to strongly promote B.C. grown fruit and compete with producers in other regions,” said Minister of Agriculture and Lands Steve

 

Thomson. “In our discussions, the industry identified some areas, such as marketing and infrastructure, where they wanted to focus efforts and make further improvements.” Canada’s Economic Action Plan continues to help farmers with its focus on strengthening the economy and creating jobs. “Everyone benefits from a healthy and prosperous fruit industry,” said B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association president Joe Sardinha. “There are approximately 800 orchard operators in B.C., and together they generate $900 million in economic activity that creates jobs and delivers high quality products to markets in B.C. and around the world.” The federal funding investment is made through the AgriFlexibility Fund, a five-year, $500-million fund created to help reduce costs of production and improve environmental sustainability for the sector; promote value-chain innovation and sectoral adaptation; and respond to emerging opportunities and market challenges for the sector. The governments of Canada and B.C. also offer a suite of jointly funded Business Risk Management programs under Growing Forward. AgriInvest, AgriStability and AgriInsurance (crop insurance) work together to provide farmers with support against farm income and production losses beyond their control. For more information on this program go to www.agr.gc.ca/agriflexibility.

Morning Star Staff

A longtime advocate of the developmentally disabled has received special recognition. Ed Columbus, director of operations for the Vernon and District Association for Community Living, has won this year’s vocational service award from the Kalamalka Rotary Club. “Ed is always tirelessly seeking opportunities to provide his developmentally disabled participants with more employment both at the Venture sites as well as in the community,” said Rob Bauml, with the club. “One of our Rotarians who has worked with Ed has said that he is always looking for an opportunity to set up a new program.” Columbus has worked for VDACL for 20 years, and has been the director of operations for 10 years. He oversees all of the therapeutic programs which include supported work, E-waste, recycling and the lunch program. “Ed has spearheaded many recycling initiatives in Vernon and the most recent achievements include the fluorescent bulb recycling machine and the styrofoam compacting program,” said Bauml. “Ed saw these opportunities and approached the regional district to see if his clients could make a difference.

Special To The Morning Star

ALBERTA - Look up. Turn a 360°. You are totally surrounded by majestic, craggy, high mountain peaks. You might be seeing them unclothed, stark and defined against a vivid blue sky in summer, or covered with sparkling, pristine snow in winter. If you are here in the fall, look down to the tree line to see the vibrant yellows and oranges of the autumn leaves dotted among the dark greens of the firs and pines. Maybe you’ll hear the rushing and roaring of streams and rivers swollen with snow melt in the spring. The mountains show infinite variety throughout the seasons, and whenever you come there is always lots to see and plenty to do. When you think of Alberta’s Rocky Mountains you usually think of Banff, Lake Louise and Jasper National Parks. But no more than 10 minutes from Banff (45 minutes west of Calgary) there’s a small valley community called Canmore. In the shadow of world-famous Banff, Canmore is often overlooked, but those who discover this sleepy little town consider it just as beautiful — it’s definitely more peaceful — providing access to all the activities you’ll find in nearby Banff and Lake Louise. Canmore is nestled in the Bow Valley corridor along the banks of the Bow River, surrounded by Three Sisters, Lawrence Grassi, Ha Ling, Lady Macdonald and other peaks, each with its own history and legend. The waters of the Bow run clear, cold, and sparkling through the town. You’ll notice the deep teal-turquoise blue of the water caused by the glacial silt minerals created by the Bow Glacier. High up in the mountains, this icy giant grinds its way ever-so-slowly into Bow Lake, the

Elk are a common sight for anyone exploring Canmore and the surrounding mountainsides. headwaters of its namesake river. Because of the surrounding mountains and the long, narrow valley, Canmore has its own mini-ecological system, and the daily temperature and snowfall can be quite different from nearby Banff and

Calgary. So whenever you visit, bring a variety of clothing — it’s been known to snow in July — though you could also encounter a heat wave.

Travel If you do come in winter be prepared for “weather.” It’s a beautiful time to be in the mountains and, yes, it’s cold, but dressed in the latest lightweight insulated clothing, you are cozy-warm. Layers are best in all seasons, so plan to add or remove garments according to the conditions. Year round, there are activities for everyone — every age, every interest, and every level of fitness. Walk, hike, bike; ski, skate, curl; play golf, explore the local caves, or glide with the sled dogs. This year of the Winter Olympics, plan to visit the Canmore Nordic Centre (built for the 1988 Winter Olympics), the major training site, and home, of the Canadian cross country ski team. You may be able to spot some of the team out training — look out for life-long Canmorian Chandra Crawford; she won a Gold Medal in the 2006 Torino Games. When you want to slow down, you can shop — there are lots of shops! And when it comes to eating, choose from fine dining, vegetarian, oriental, pasta, soup (oh, those legendary Canmore soups!) fast food, and bagel, coffee and tea shops. Be ready to loosen your belt a notch — unless you have plans for some energetic

exercise. Whatever you decide to do, be aware of the other residents: wild animals that were here long before humans came. The Bow Valley is a major wildlife corridor, and bears, coyotes, cougars, deer, wolf, and elk herds roam free and share the neighbourhood. You may meet a grizzly bear and her cubs while you are hiking, or spot a coyote strolling down the middle of the deserted main street when you leave your restaurant in the evening. (It’s true! We saw it.) These animals are not out to spoil your holiday; they are not really interested in you at all unless you get between a mother and her young, or find their food cache. Obey the “Trail Closed” signs, and check out the “Bow Valley Wildsmart” brochures, found around town, to learn about the ways of these other Bow Valley inhabitants. And never, ever, think you can’t come in winter — if you do, you would miss out on a huge window with a whole variety of activities and experiences that are fun and exhilarating. Face winter head-on and you won’t even notice it — well, not much, anyway! Ann Jordan Mills is with Travel Writers’ Tales, an independent travel article syndicate.

A side street in Beijing, China reveals bicycles, automobiles, pedestrians and small restaurants — selling everything from dumplings and noodles to traditional Beijing duck — and offers a glimpse into today’s China that combines the modern conveniences of the 21st century with the ancient traditions of the Middle Kingdom.

Go ‘Behind the Scenes’ VICTORIA —The Royal B.C. Museum reveals all things natural in a new exhibition. Royal B.C. Museum: Behind the Scenes is a multiyear project that includes an original exhibition, special events program, interactive website and tours to the museum collections areas. Designed to give visitors an insider’s look at the museum’s 124-year-history of scientific research, part one of Behind the Scenes runs until fall 2011 and showcases the work of the natural history department. “Since 1886, the Royal B.C. Museum has been collecting specimens relating to B.C.’s natural history,” said RBCM CEO Pauline Rafferty. “The specimens you see in our galleries are a small fraction of what’s actually in our collections. The goal of this exhibition is to show visitors a side of their museum they’ve probably never seen before, and give a sense of how exciting – and varied – this province’s biodiversity really is.” The 10,000-square-foot exhibition features thousands of natural history specimens, ranging from preserved sea cucumbers, clawed frogs and pythons, to a 225-million-year-old fossilized Saurichthys (reptile fish). As an approved 2010 UNESCO International Year of Biodiversity project, Behind the Scenes features an extensive special events program that includes summer camps for kids, adult and family workshops and discussion events. To visit the online interactive exhibition, visit www.royalbcmuseum.bc.ca/bts/bts.html. For more information on the latest activities, and exhibitions at the Royal B.C.

Sports Stallions charge win

Vernon high on draft daze

W

hen the Dallas Stars chose American goalie Jack Campbell in the NHL Entry Draft last Friday, both Dennis Holland and Joe Oliver of Vernon were smiling at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Holland is a fulltime scout with the Stars, while Oliver, a former Vipers' head coach, works for agent Kurt Overhardt of KO Sports Inc. "At the end of the day, we got the best goaltender in the draft, and anytime you can get the best player at his position, you can walk away happy," said Holland, who feels the Stars met their agenda by bolstering their defence as well. Campbell, who went 11th overall, starred for Kevin Mitchell the U.S. Under 18 team, helping the Americans upset Canada in the World Junior gold-medal game. He is one of several players represented by Overhardt. Oliver was beaming earlier in the round when Ryan Johansen of Surrey (Portland Winterhawks) was chosen fourth overall by the Columbus Blue Jackets. "He's steadily moved up the charts," said Oliver, from poolside in Las Vegas Friday afternoon. "He played in Penticton two years ago but was basically used on the fourth line. He got more ice time when (Denver) Manderson got hurt in the playoffs. He had a great year in Portland and you're always looking for guys who can keep on raising their standard." Oliver's company also represent Mark McMillan of the Alberni Bulldogs, who went to Montreal in round four, and Isaac MacLeod of the Vees, who was plucked in the fifth round by San Jose. Penticton head coach/GM Fred Harbinson, who watched Vees' centre Beau Bennett go 20th overall to the Penguins, enjoyed being around the draft buzz. “To be here and be part of it with

BETWEEN THE LINES

(Bennett’s) family was great,” Harbinson told Black Press. “Beau has been a lowkey kid throughout the whole process. It was funny when I looked at it. The day that he was drafted, a year to the day he called me and committed to Penticton. Throughout the whole process of coming to Penticton, all the attention he had and then getting drafted, he’s kept a real low-key persona. He has always deflected a lot of his accomplishments to his teammates. He has a bright future ahead of him. As does Isaac MacLeod and Ryan Johansen.” Harbinson found time to complete a deal in principle with the Winnipeg South Blues for sniper Brendan O’Donnell, who was selected in round six by the Tampa Bay Lightning. Holland, meanwhile, took his mom, Lee, and his own family to the draft. His son, Jake, a Grade 5 Silver Star Elementary School student, was the runner at the Dallas table, getting autographs from the likes of Paul Coffey and Mark Messier during the gig of his life. Jake's fantasy vacation resumed after the draft with trips to Sea World in San Diego and Disneyland in Anaheim. No word if Jake tried to talk his uncle Ken, GM of the Red Wings, into making a trade. Over at the Wings' table, Vernon's Marty Stein and Vernon minor hockey product Jeff Finley, now of Kelowna, had a say in Detroit's sixth-round choice, Brooks Macek of the Tri-City Americans, via Winnipeg. Stein also made the draft a family affair by taking his 20-something son, Andrew, with him. Andrew enjoyed Malibu Beach, where Detroit's Jiri Hudler has a summer place, and watched the draft from the Wings' suite with assistant coaches Paul MacLean and Brad McCrimmon. Andrew hitched a ride into town with Ken's son Brad Holland, who writes for NHL.com. Greg's sister Rachel, was also in the rink. "We were joking that we had the most family members at the draft," said Dennis. Stein, meanwhile, was impressed with

Vancouver's free agent signings Keith Ballard and Dan Hamhuis. "Vancouver did well," he said. "They're going to be tough on the back line." Stein says most of the moves are "all cap-based" and he figures "there will be a lot of players still available in August after teams go through negotiations with their own players and see how much money is left." Vernon's Craig Demetrick, a former Flames' scout who like most people, is bewildered Calgary went back to the future and signed Ollie Jokinen and Alex Tanguay, worked harder than his local cohorts since the Florida Panthers had a zillion picks. Dimmer was in meetings until 1 a.m. Saturday after a four-hour round one. The Panthers, on the strength of recommendations by Demetrick of Aaron Ginnell of Calgary, chose Alberta Junior Hockey League players Sam Brittain (Canmore Eagles) and Ben Gallacher (Camrose Kodiaks) with the first two selections in the fourth round. "Brittain's a big goalie who is going to Denver (NCAA Pioneers) next year since we signed Marc Cheverie (Denver and Nanaimo Clipper grad). Gallacher is a d-man who will spend one more year in Canmore and then go to Ohio State." Demetrick was ecstatic when Florida took monster Red Deer Rebels' d-man Alexander Petrovic in round two. Demetrick has been high on the Edmonton product since he was an under-ager. Vernon's George Fargher was drinking bottled water and doing lots of golf stretches at the Ottawa Senators' table. The Sens didn't have a choice until the third round, but they made headlines by inking Pittsburgh all-star blueliner Sergei Gonchar on Canada Day. "He's a great offensive player who can really help our powerplay," said Fargher. "He wanted to come to Ottawa. His agent called us so we got him right off the bat. We had an agreement 15 minutes into free agency. He wants to play in Canada so that's encouraging to hear."

Agassiz earns volleyball honour Morning Star Staff

It all started with an officials clinic. Six years later, Nancy Agassiz is one of the biggest behind-the-scenes players on the Vernon volleyball scene. She has the mind-taxing job of allocating games for high school, club and Greater Vernon volleyball rec leagues, and by all accounts, she is very good at it. “I took the course and enjoyed doing it. We needed a new allocator, so I just stepped into it,” shrugged Agassiz, who also serves as a referee. She was formally recognized for her contributions at the recent Volleyball B.C. AGM and Awards night in Burnaby, earning Provincial Official of the Year. “It was quite surprising, quite honourable when you think

about it,” said Agassiz, a letter carrier for Canada Post and mother of daughters Carling, 25, and Siona, 21. Humble about the role she plays, Agassiz explained: “I don’t make the schedule, I schedule who goes to what games. “Every school, whether it’s ‘A,’ ‘AA’ or ‘AAA,’ has its own schedule. It’s a challenge to fill the slots. The more I do it, the more I learn how the systems work.” Joan Rowan nominated Agassiz for the award, and says her dedication and attention to the small details are what make her so effective. “With Nancy in charge of allocating, things have been running smoothly and efficiently,” said Rowan. “She even anticipates possible errors in the league

The host Revelstoke Stallions toppled TurnKey Controls 3-1 in North Okanagan Men's Soccer League action Wednesday night. Turn-Key, who started and ended with 11 players after two injuries, came out hard from the beginning and dominated possession, putting together passing play after passing play. Taylor Horsting put Turn-Key up 1-0 early in the first half, sneaking a shot by the Revelstoke keeper from an unlikely goal-line angle. Revelstoke equalized late in the second half, on a well-placed shot off a through ball that beat back-up keeper Jeremy Kler. In what could be described as the TSN Turning Point, and an act of some weird magic, Matt Wylie beat the Revelstoke keeper late in the first half only to have the ball take a mysterious bounce in the dirt right on the goal line and bounce over top of the net. Revelstoke scored two quick goals midway through the second half and were able to hold off the young Turn-Key squad who missed numerous chances. In other action, North Enderby Timber grounded Monashee Surveying 2-0 at Marshall Field #2. Brent Poulsen opened the NET offence early in the second half, converting a juicy rebound of a low, dipping 25-yard shot by Andrew Stein. Seb Gardner added an insurance tally with 15 minutes to, going on a great solo run before getting stopped by the keeper. Gardner corralled the rebound and looped the ball by Monashee keeper Colin McDonnell. Danny Stein recorded the shutout. The Davidson & Co. Dynamite shut down Concept Physio 4-0 at Marshall #4. Geoff Cox, Devin Haywood-Farmer and Tommy Li were among the snipers for the Dynamite. Bryndon Buckham and Ean Ross shared the shutout.

CITY OF ARMSTRONG The City of Armstrong has recently advertised its intention to borrow funds to implement the Residential Water Meter Program. The community was advised what the costs for the program would be and how it would be paid for. We are now in the process of waiting for the Alternative Voting Opportunity to complete on July 24th, 2010 before proceeding. Armstrong City Council is ensuring that an information mail out is being sent to every home in their regular mail during the week of July 5th to 9th. Citizens are urged to review the information and to phone City Hall if they have any questions. It is important to note: • The City of Armstrong is committed to the Residential Water Meter Program for financial and future water planning needs. PHOTO SUBMITTED

• The question before the community is not whether water meters will be installed, but rather: • Will we borrow the additional funds to complete the entire community at once, or • Will it be a phased installation throughout town, as funds allow. Please don’t hesitate to call City Hall should you have any questions about the Alternative Voting Opportunity process or the Water Meter Program. 250-546-3023 Patti Ferguson, CMC Administrator

Rocks fall in double OT Morning Star Staff

It was the Armstrong Jr. Shamrocks’ best game of the season. Unfortunately, it was also their last. The ‘Rocks bowed 6-5 to the Kamloops Rattlers in a doubleovertime thriller in Game 2 of the best-of-three Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League quarterfinals Friday night at Nor-Val Centre in Armstrong. Trailing late in the third period, the Rattlers went to their go-to guy, sniper JJ Woldum (4G), who scored with 10 seconds left to force overtime. Kamloops scored first in the 10-minute, non-sudden death OT period, but shortly after a Shamrocks’ timeout, Dalaney Halifax (2G) equalized with less than a minute remaining to push the game to sudden death. “They just set a great pick and Halifax came around, got the pass and found the net,” said Armstrong head coach Pat Nelson. “Our guys left it all out on the floor. We couldn’t be more proud of them. It wasn’t high scoring, but it was truly a great game of lacrosse; both teams played well. It was back and forth all game.” Stephen Ringdal, Cory DeBoer, Brayden Bridge and Jarrett Medhurst

There was just one Okanagan team left in medal contention after preliminary play at the B.C. Masters Lacrosse Championships in Vernon. The Okanagan MASS Consulting Masters played in the C division gold-medal game Saturday afternoon. They faced the winner of the Surrey Stickmen-Northshore Cowboys semifinal match that went earlier that morning. The consulting crew went undefeated in roundrobin play, starting with a 5-2 win over the Stickmen Thursday night at Hassen Arena in Armstrong. John Ziola led the Okanagan scoring with a pair of goals. Armstrong Shamrocks’ veteran Chad Pounder had a single. The MASS posse then outgunned Northshore 8-3 on Friday at Civic Arena. Ziola and Stu Williamson paced the Okanagan attack with two goals each. Trinity Johnson and Pat Nelson each supplied singles. In Grandmasters 45+ action, Okanagan Leko went 1-3 in round-robin play. After close losses to the Northshore Indians (8-7), Burnaby Coasters (3-2) and Nanaimo Timbermen

They followed that with a 9-6 win over Port Coquitlam later that day at Wesbild. The Spring crew suffered their only loss Friday afternoon, bowing 6-5 to the Ladner Pioneers. The Pioneers and Coasters met in the A final Saturday at Wesbild.

also scored for Armstrong. Logan Strohm figured in every single Shamrocks’ goal, collecting five assists. Russ McIntosh and Brett Fleming had the other Rattler goals. Strohm, Medhurst, Halifax, Mike Belanger and Dustin Heitman are all graduating from the Armstrong junior program. “It was a great season with those guys, and it was a pleasure to coach the whole team,” said Nelson. “I don’t want to look past this season yet, but we’ve got some great players graduating out of Midget. We’re going to build off of this season.” The Shamrocks are sponsored by Askew’s Foods, Shepherd’s Home Hardware, Brown Derby Cafe, Brown International Services and Nor-Val Rentals.

NET PRESENCE

Morning Star Staff

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Harry Rempel makes a quick return at the net in a doubles tennis match Friday afternoon at the Kalamalka Country Club.

Vernon's Andrew Ebbett will play in the desert next NHL season. The 27-year-old centre signed a one-year contract Friday with the Phoenix Coyotes. As per club policy, terms of the deals were not disclosed. Ebbett recorded 9-6-15 and eight penalty minutes in 61 games last season with the Anaheim Ducks, Chicago Blackhawks and Minnesota Wild. Ebbett appeared in two games with Anaheim to begin the season before being claimed off waivers by Chicago on Oct. 17. After scoring one goal in 10 games with the Blackhawks, Ebbett joined the Wild as a waiver wire pickup. He remained with Minnesota for the rest of the season, recording 8-6-14 in 49 games with the Wild. In 2008-09, the 5-foot-9, 174-pound Ebbett set career-highs in assists (24) and points (32) while appearing in 48 games with Anaheim. He also collected 1-2-3 in 13 playoff games for the Ducks. In addition, Ebbett tallied 10-19-29 in 28 games with Iowa of the American Hockey League. In 112 career NHL games, Ebbett has registered 17-30-47. Prior to his professional career, Ebbett played four years of collegiate hockey at the University of Michigan, recording 38-105-143 in 167 games while serving as team captain his senior year. He played one season with the BCHL Salmon Arm SilverBacks, earning 45 goals and 84 points.

Rockets nab Norway centre WARREN HENDERSON Black Press Sports

KELOWNA – With Mitch Callahan, Cody Ito and Cody Chikie as the team's 19-year-old forwards, the Kelowna Rockets have a relatively small group up front. The Western Hockey League club addressed that need for size by selecting Norwegian forward Andreas Stene 25th overall in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft. Stene is a 6-foot-3, 200-pound centre who played last season with Vålerenga of Norway's senior men's league. "We just don't have enough size there with our 19s, so this helps us in that we shouldn't have to make a trade," said Rockets’ president and GM Bruce Hamilton. "He's played some good hockey and he can help us now, rather than us picking a young guy. We're deep in 1993 and 1994 kids; it was a 1991 guy we needed." With the Vålerenga Division II team, Stene had eight goals and 15 assists in 14 games. With the elite squad, he played in 13 games registering no points. Stene has played at all national junior team levels in Norway, from U16 to U20. Last season, he attended the training camp of the NHL's Chicago Blackhawks. "It's interesting to me that he's been to Chicago's camp, they've seen something in him," added Hamilton. "He needs to play more than he's been playing and he'll help us address some real needs we have."

The Kelowna Rockets selected Norwegian forward Andreas Stene 25th overall in the Canadian Hockey League Import Draft. The Rockets also had the 85th pick overall in the import draft and selected Slovenian native Gal Koren. A 6-foot-1 191 pound centre/left wing, Koren had 41 points in 32 games for Jungadler Mannheim playing in Germany last season. He has also played for the Slovenian Under-20, Under-18 and Under-17 national teams and was rated 69th on the international skaters ranking for the 2010 NHL draft.

"Besides the players, the event will attract parents, siblings and coaches," said Jodi Rolke, association vice-president. "The economic impact on Greater Vernon will be significant as they will utilize our local hotels and motels, restaurants

and shops. "Considerable planning has been underway for months, and a dedicated group of volunteers will be working hard behind the scenes during the event. We are preparing to show the province what Greater Vernon hospitality is all about." The opening ceremony will be held Friday, July 9 at noon at Grahame Park and representatives from the City of Vernon, the District of Coldstream and the North Okanagan Regional District, as well as MLA Eric Foster and MP Colin Mayes, will be in attendance.

My dog, especially in summer, really smells terrible despite bathing regularly. Why? Dogs with thick, longish hair will often develop what I call wet mop syndrome. The more they swim or bathe the worse

they smell. This is due to a proliferation of yeast and bacteria at the base of the haircoat where the skin is too often dark, warm, and moist. A close haircut will solve the problem immediately. Both you and your dog will enjoy a better summer. You can do this with any breed of dog; my Shephard cross looked a bit odd the first time I tried this with her, but quickly learned to enjoy her cleaner, shorter coat, as did I. The coat will regrow in about 60 days. Two haircuts per summer worked well. — Dr. Lemiski

CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Care aide Amber Peters always remembers to brush residentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; teeth. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I tell them theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky to still have their teeth and they have to take care of them. I make sure to clean their dentures if they have them,â&#x20AC;? she said. Peters, a soft-spoken 25-year-old mother of two has just had all her teeth removed after a lifetime of dental problems and pain. She received some care until she was nine because her family lived in Ontario which has a dental plan for lowincome families. Then the family moved to B.C. and lost the dental coverage. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I always had lots of decay and fillings. I remember when I was three and they had to hold me down for a filling. Things just got worse and it wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t brush my teeth, I loved brushing my teeth,â&#x20AC;? she said. She thinks there is some hereditary role as she was told she had soft teeth, many members of her family have dental problems and her father had all his teeth removed before he was 30. Community dental hygienist Laine Lowe said there are several factors besides lack of regular dental care that may have contributed to Petersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; condition: she lived in an area where there was no fluoride in the water which would have â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Amber helped make the enamel harder; she might have had an inadequate diet while growing up; and the bacteria in her mouth that causes decay could be particularly strong. Children get the bacteria in their mouths from their parents in the first year of their lives. Because of this, Peters is advised not to kiss her children. Peters confirmed that her family had struggled to get enough to eat and would sometimes go two days without food and there was simply not enough money for dental care. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It really affected my life. I would miss time from school from the pain and people would laugh at me because of my teeth. There is never a picture of me smiling. My mouth was always swollen and I felt sick and nauseated, like I had the flu. I had no energy and got strep throat a lot,â&#x20AC;? said Peters. Lowe explained, â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the teeth and gums are infected, the infection gets in the bloodstream and the toxins can form infections and inflammation in other parts of the body.â&#x20AC;? Peters managed somehow to finish school and go to college to qualify as a care aide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had to hide my mouth to get into college or I would never have been accepted but I love my work and I always wanted to work with seniors,â&#x20AC;? she said. She now works on call as a care aide and has no benefits and her husband also works part-time with no benefits. After they have paid for rent, basic utilities and food, they have $80 to $100 per month left over for everything else for a family of four. She had been told a few years ago that it would cost $7,000 to have all her teeth removed but it was impossible to even start to save for the procedure.

Peters did the best she could but things kept getting worse. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sometimes I was in so much pain that I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take care of the kids and my husband would have to take time off to take care of them. I would put my sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cold bottles from the fridge on my face. It was so painful. I would rather have 10 babies than have that pain all the time.â&#x20AC;? Her doctor tried to get some emergency help for her but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t find anything. When she went to the hospital for pain, she was able to get one tooth (they were all abscessed and draining) extracted through the Community Dental Access Centre bursary fund. Lowe is founding member of the Community Dental Access Centre committee and arranged for Peters to have photos taken of her mouth with the inter-oral camera in Dr. David Regehrâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in the hopes of asking for community donations to have the 31 teeth extracted. When Regehr saw Petersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; mouth, he said the infection was so bad that he would take the teeth out immediately. It took two sessions over two days. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When he was doing it, he kept saying, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, my goodness.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; The second time, I was sedated but it took 24 hours for the freezing to come out,â&#x20AC;? she said, expressing her deep gratitude to Regehr for his help, which possibly saved her life which would have been in danger if the infection had got any worse. Peters â&#x20AC;&#x153;I felt so much better even a couple of days after. The pressure in my head is gone. I can sleep all night and I wake up with energy. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been pain-free for so long that I had forgotten what it was like. I was always taking Tylenol just to keep going. Now I will be able to go on with my goal of becoming a registered nurse.â&#x20AC;? She is thrilled with the idea of a low-cost dental clinic for the North Okanagan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say thank you enough to everyone who helped me. I know my parents feel bad about this but they did the best they could for me at the time. And my husband feels horrible because he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m glad the clinic is coming here and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to volunteer for anything they want,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I should go down on my knees to say thank you. I was never expecting to get rid of the pain, because I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford it.â&#x20AC;? Now Lowe is asking the community to help Peters get dentures. The cost will be $2,000 plus $658 in a few months to get the dentures re-lined when the swelling in her mouth has gone down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m getting more and more cases that are very severe because of the recession and people losing jobs or working at low-paying jobs. Even though dental health affects the whole body, it is not covered by medical insurance and we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do much to help them until we have the clinic open. All donations are welcome and any amount will make a difference,â&#x20AC;? she said. The Community Dental Access Centre committee has been working for four years to set up the centre. The com-

Life

The people have spoken

M

y earliest memories of discussions around the value of people who choose to work in the trades was from my mom singing the praises of her mechanic. When we lived on the farm in Metcalf township money was always tight. Mom worked at the hospital which was about 20 miles away so her car was very important to her. She found a mechanic in Strathroy who kept the vehicle going for her Michele Blais long past the time it should have. He was grumpy, but she adored him and always told him so and her charm won him over. She would explain the various clunky, twanging noises, he would cuss, drive her to work, have her picked up at the end of the day and off she would go in her car smoothly and quietly once again. As I write this I am watching Ray the Fall Guy and his partner Mark take down a dead tree in our yard. This tree should have been cut down years ago and certainly before the new house below it went in but for some reason it didn’t. It is a very delicate procedure to take down a large dead tree that hangs over a house, and it is the skill of Ray and Mark that it is making it work. Now my darling wanted to cut down that tree, and common sense prevailed. I gave him a chainsaw for Christmas when we lived on Sunnyview, and by the new year three cedars had been turned into firewood. There is something about giving a man a chainsaw that puts a kind of scary gleeful look in their eyes. There are times when we need the pros. My maternal grandpa was a carpenter, and then a developer. When he was retired he would load us up in the old Pontiac and drive us around Huron County showing us his various projects and telling great stories about each one. He was proud of his role in building the community. On this Canada Day weekend I celebrate all the people that have built and continue to make this country thrive. It takes a great deal of services to keep us moving, whether it is the person I buy my coffee from in the morning, the gas attendant, mechanic, grocery clerks, farmers, distribution services, druggist, doctors, nurses, maintenance, carpenters, etc. — you get the picture. We are all important in our roles, we all serve. Which leads me to our MLA Eric Foster, who is supposedly here to represent the people of this region and what I see of his view on the numbers game. It seems voter numbers are only important to him sometimes. If the Liberals hadn’t had so many good candidates come forward to spread the vote for the nomination would he have been the winner? If this riding wasn’t a shoe-in (at this time) for anyone representing the Liberal party in a provincial election, those numbers might have been different. As it was, those numbers were important to him then because those last two got him a new job. I find his arrogance and dismissiveness of the number of people who came out and signed a petition that goes against current government policy amazing. Not to acknowledge their efforts and concerns because he doesn’t agree is disturbing. Yes you may believe that the HST is the right decision, however it’s the people who are speaking. This whole process of the immediacy of the introduction of it right after the election and the denial that it was in the planning stages, the lack of information has raised many questions and concerns. Remember this is Canada, where we do get to elect our government, where we have the right to peaceful protest, to sign petitions, to speak out, to keep an eye and careful watch on our elected officials. Yes it’s a tough job and so are many other jobs that keep this country going. It reminds

THE WAY I SEE IT

VERNON FLOWER SHOP

me of the “Mommy knows best” argument which this mommy knows isn’t always so. Like many of us in service know, if we don’t continue to provide great service we lose the opportunity, and that doesn’t always mean that you always say yes, it does mean paying attention and listening to concerns. If I may borrow from Shane Koyczan, “we are more than a nation of whale watchers, and lumberjacks, more than backpacks and hiking trails, we are hammers and nails building bridges towards those who are willing to walk across. We are first-rate greasy spoon diners and healthy living cafes. A land that can give you variety because we are choices. We are the true north strong and free and what’s more is that we didn’t just say it we made it be.” We made it be. Not I.

Life

S

everal years ago, four-year-old Conor Clapton fell to his death in New York City. After the tragedy his father, rock guitarist Eric Clapton, said, “I turned to stone. Then I went off the edge of the world for a while.” The agony of grief. What is grief? Basically, grief is about coming to terms with the fact that things will never be the same again. Something is lost and is never coming back, ever. It may be something more obvious or tragic like the death of a family member or friend, or divorce or disability; or it may be the more “natural” loss of youth, or beauty, or having kids in the house, or the shattering of a lifelong dream or of retirement. What do we do with grief? For the most part, it seems, we have no idea. Many are told to “get over” their grief, and the sooner the bet-

that was lost. How? Good Friday is God’s response to grief — His as well as ours. On the cross, although he “bore our griefs and carried our sorrows,” and felt his own sorrow, Jesus also caused great sorrow. In fact, the cross is the greatest grief-causing event in history, since it is when and where the most was lost: God lost his Son! Three days later Jesus rose again, and a day is coming when he will wipe every tear from the believers’ eyes, says the Apostle John in Revelation. “There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain.” All they will know throughout eternity is health, love, peace, satisfaction, joy and astonishment. Heaven is the place where nothing will be lost, ever. In time, Clapton put his tortured feelings into a song: “Time can bring you down, time can bend

Healing to open the heart and mind MARY STEBBINS Special to The Morning Star

Under the African sky, where the Milky Way is a river so bright you could pluck the stars from the heavens, the Tara Rokpa Centre lies nestled in a quiet valley near the northwestern border of South Africa. The manager and heart of this centre is in the form of a small woman. She is ageless, a face creased by the African sun, with energy that leaves many of the younger guests panting behind as she leads them through the creeks and up the hills of the place she has come to know intimately, eyes of deep compassion for the many who come to her with their problems. Gogo, those in the nearby African settlement call her — grandmother — and she is that to them, both loving and compassionate yet able to be stern when the need arises. The woman is Pippa Cope, born and raised in South Africa, moving to England where she did her university training, but called back to Africa to work first in Zimbabwe as an occupational therapist and a community developer, and later returning to her homeland. Pippa is a highly practical, resourceful, and deeply spiritual human being. If you came to visit the centre you might have difficulty tracking her down as she’s always on the move. You might encounter her supervising a mudbrick building project, catching a puff adder that had slipped into the dining area, sitting on a committee for environmental protection of the valley, holding a child on her lap, standing on her head in a yoga pose, or sitting in meditation. However once found, you can be assured you’ll be served a cup of tea and have a chance to sit and chat under the

spreading tree that stands guard over the centre. She is Akong Rinpoche’s right-hand woman at the Tara Rokpa Centre where, for 15 years, she has been involved with Tara Rokpa Therapy (TRT). It is in this regard she is travelling to British Columbia to present a healing relaxation workshop in Vernon Aug. 28 and 29. TRT is a fusion of Tibetan and Western wisdom, based on the principle that the human mind’s innate healing capacity can never be permanently damaged or destroyed. TRT has been developed over the past 30 years by Dr. Akong Tulku Rinpoche, renowned physician of traditional Tibetan medicine and meditation master. In 1959 he fled to India from Tibet, beginning the trek with a group of more than 300 people. He was one of only 13 who survived the harrowing journey. This experience became a pivotal point, leading him to dedicate his life to finding relief for those who suffer — physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. His contact over many years with the Western world led him to see that generally westerners have strong intellectual and cognitive skills, but often their emotional and social development is fragile. TRT developed out of his wish to share his knowledge and insights with Westerners in a form what would be accessible to all, whatever their belief. Blending the wisdom and training from his own tradition he collaborated with a small team of western mental health practitioners to create a program based in compassion as a key healing agent. Pippa’s connection to Akong Rinpoche and TRT goes back many years. Here in B.C. we have the benefit of her years of

experience in this opportunity to participate in an experiential and fun workshop. The healing relaxation workshop is about opening and relaxing the heart and mind. Everyone experiences peace and tranquility from time to time. Yet often our bodies and minds tighten and freeze in response to life’s challenges and stresses, and even tough creative solutions and expansive ideas are most likely to arise from a relaxed state. This simple, yet profound program is designed to help people repair the tensions resulting from conditions of modern life, as well as to help prevent them from developing in the first place. Participants will explore the benefits of developing calmer states of mind where creative solutions have a chance to arise, learn relaxation, breathing, and visualization techniques, practise simple massage, and explore the use of art materials as a pathway to unearthing feelings. Mary Stebbins, a longtime resident of Vernon, recently spent six months in Africa, much of it volunteering at the Tara Rokpa Centre where she came to know Pippa Cope well. Her interest in Tara Rokpa Therapy grew as she witnessed its benefits to the people practising it. The healing relaxation workshop takes place Aug. 28 and 29 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., both days. The $160 cost includes lunch and snacks. A nonrefundable deposit of $50 is due by July 30. The workshop takes place at 8578 Greenaway Rd., Vernon. For more information, or to register, call Stebbins at 250542-2439 or e-mail marystebb@hotmail. com. Registration cost covers the travel, accommodation, and meals of the presenter, as well as a donation to a Rokpa International project.

SIRB is on the move

reaking up is hard to do, and moving is even worse. The Social Planning Council, located for many years across from the parkade on 31st Avenue, is moving and will have moved by the time this column is published. That means that the programs located at this address and under their direction are moving as well. The Social Planning Council’s new office will be located at Community Futures at 3105-33rd. St. and Annette Sharkey, executive director, can be found at Pat Black 250-540-8572 where she will continue her good work with City Council and this community addressing such issues as affordable housing, homelessness and opportunities for sustainable growth, among others. The Volunteer Bureau has moved to the North Okanagan Employment Enhancement Society’s location at #102, 3201-30th St. and will continue to be available to people who want to offer their time and efforts to help others. You can reach Twylla Genest, coordinator, at 250-545-0585, if you want to volunteer. The Seniors Information and Resource Centre (SIRB) along with the Falls Prevention program will be located at People Place, 3402 27th Ave. SIRB will continue to assist seniors who need help with a wide range of issues and the office is open Monday to Thursday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and drop-in visitors are welcome. Dayle Drury is the coordinator and she can be reached at 250-545-8572. The Falls Prevention Program will also be located in the same office at People Place and offers advice to seniors about preventing falls, identifying city hazards, and performing home safety checks.

Planning, whether volunteer or paid employee, it has always felt like a large loose-knit family. We are going to miss the camaraderie and the sense of purpose that we shared through community services. Mostly, we will miss our own particular and personal community, which offered shared experiences, laughs and supports for one another. Breaking up is hard to do and we all feel a sense of loss and sadness as we move on. But our work continues and change is a challenge of life that we can either choose to endure or embrace. The Social Planning family members are all embracers. It will be business as usual for these organizations, just at different locations, after July 5. A head’s up for anyone who loves Polson Park, drives a car and has mobility issues. The idea of closing the road through the park to general traffic has some merit, I’m sure, except if you have problems and can’t walk far, which I suspect a great number of people do, especially seniors, given the abundance of handicap signs in car windows in this city. Personally, I am unable to walk any distance and I love this park and enjoy driving and parking near the pond to have lunch and watch the kids and ducks play or just to park in a quiet place and feel the peace. As I understand it, this property was sold to Samuel Polson by Price Ellison around 1907, with the condition that he donate it to the city for the free access of all citizens. Now, one of the proposed plans for the park will remove this road and prevent accessing the park to people with mobility issues. If you, or someone you care about, has a disability and feels the removal of this access to the park is discrimination, call the mayor or any council member. In my experience while they may not always agree, they do listen. The number for City Hall is 250-545-1361 or go online to www. rdno.ca.

Future cirque stars strut their stuff at week-long camp Morning Star Staff

With Cirque du Soleil’s long-standing show Alegria coming to the Okanagan in August, local youth can get in on the act with the Cirque Theatre Camp being held in Vernon July 12 to 16. Hosted by Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics, the camp features a variety of cirque-style feats and fun, and is being directed by former Olympian Camille Martens. “I wanted to facilitate/run this camp to offer something new and different to kids in Vernon,” said Martens, who runs the Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics club in Vernon. “Circus arts are fun, challenging and

creative and within the circus arts there is enough diversity that there really is something for everyone.” Geared towards boys and girls ages eight to 12, participants will get a handle on acrobatics, tumbling and juggling, using spinning plates, diabolos and flags. There will also be masks, clowning, stilt walking, face painting, drama and games to make the week as fun as possible, said Martens. The camp will culminate in a special show for parents at the end of the week. “In this camp, kids will get to work with a dynamic team of experts including artists and specialists that have worked with Cirque

du Soleil and École Nationale de Cirque, and coaches of both rhythmic and artistic gymnastics national teams of Canada,” said Martens. “Kids will learn about the history of modern circus and get to try a vast array of activities under top-notch supervision.” An artist, certified rhythmic coach and choreographer, Brie-Anne MacPherson will run several sessions/workshops, while Tammy Andreotti, an artistic gymnastics specialist, will focus on tumbling and acrobatic skills. Brianna Darwin, who started her training at Okanagan Rhythmic Gymnastics, is coming from the prestigious École Nationale de Cirque in Montreal to share her expertise in

a variety of circus arts. “We’ve got the special aerial hoops installed so that she can teach all campers aerial hoops. Brianna is also going to be leading plate spinning and diabolo work,” said Martens. Also returning to her home turf is Vernon native Rachel Martens, an alumnus of Cirque du Soleil and École Nationale de Cirque, who brings a broad background in circus arts, including clowning, yoga, theatre, dance and music.

Salma Hayek, who plays Sandler’s fashion designer wife, has never been saddled with a character so unlikable, and poor Maria Bello, Eric’s wife, still breast feeding the couple’s four-year-old son, ultimately suffers through more juvenile boob gags than should be permitted. Again, everyone involved does seem to be enjoying the experience –– they’re cracking jokes left and right and grinning earto-ear. Unfortunately, we, the audience, are completely left out of the fun. With dialogue so wooden it borders on awkward and a whoreally-cares attitude, these Grown Ups are way too immature to be around.

Sax man shuffles home BARB BROUWER Black Press

The heat will be on when Junoaward winner Richard Underhill returns home to the Shuswap this weekend. The talented jazz alto-sax man will perform today at Lorenzo’s Café. On a cross-Canada tour with his long-awaited fourth album, The Free Spirit, a CD and DVD recorded live at Toronto’s Lula Lounge last fall, Underhill is taking the opportunity to catch up with family and friends. Originally from Salmon Arm, Underhill is an alumnus of The Shuffle Demons, a Toronto jazz force that called it quits in 1997. The band reformed for a reunion tour in 2004 and another in 2009, which included a stop at Vernon’s Komasket Music Festival. Underhill’s new album features outstanding performances from trombonist Ron Westray, former Shuffle Demon guitarist Eric St-Laurent, pianist Dave Restivo and bassist Artie Roth, and was shot with a five-camera video crew. Between the studio album and the DVD, there are 13 new and old Underhill originals performed by this “amazing” band, said Underhill. “It’s a bunch of new songs with a quintet featuring trombone this time,” he said enthusiastically, referring to Westray, a Lincoln Centre Jazz Orchestra alumnus, who went to Toronto as the new Oscar Peterson jazz chair at York University. The two met at Toronto’s Reservoir Lounge where Underhill plays every

Thursday, and Westray readily agreed to do a CD together. “He has booked some wild tours like the Zacatecas Cultural Festival in Mexico,” said Underhill. “If all goes according to plan, we’ll be going to Mongolia, Thailand, Korea, New Zealand, Australia, possibly China, most of them jazz festivals.” Underhill says his mom was a big influence on his love of jazz, introducing him to the music of Dave Brubeck and Fraser McPherson. “There’s something about jazz that combines the freedom of improvising, with structure of the form of the song,” he said, noting he likes the duality where the musician is playing things that are structured and melodic, and then breaks free of that. “Playing jazz is like five people jumping off a plane together, making a parachute together on the way down and landing safely. And that’s what we try to do, start together, inspire each other, take chances and hopefully arrive together at the same time.” But he’s not stuck in one genre, playing many other styles when the mood strikes, including blues and Klezmer. A Toronto resident for 28 years, Underhill plays his alto-sax on this current tour with Restivo on piano, Roth on bass, William Carn on trombone, and Morgan Childs on drums. Catch the quintet live at 8 p.m. tonight at Lorenzo’s Cafe, 901 Mabel Lake Road, east of Enderby. Call 250838-6700 for reservations.

Local toy shop makes the grade GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Two decades in operation, a recent business award and more room to play – Vernon Teach and Learn are acing the test on Business 101. Owned by Lynella and Trevor Henke, Teach and Learn celebrated its 20th anniversary in May, and coupled with an expansion that has doubled their floor space to 5,000 square feet, 2010 is shaping up to be an exciting year. Oh, and they also won Small Business of the Year at this year’s Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce Awards Gala, an honour they collected in 2007. “We were excited because one you’ve won it once, I thought that was it,” said Lynella, who started Teach and Learn in 1990 with her mother, Mavis Jackson. “They told us we were nominated for it this year but we thought we had no hope because we were tearing down walls and we had sawdust flying everywhere when they came to do the interview. So we both died of shock when we won it.” The shop has a wide range of educational toys, teaching aids, arts and crafts supplies, books and reading material, and other educational essentials. Their learning-specific items draw a steady clientele from the school district, schools and teachers. As owners of their building, the Henkes were able to shift Carousel Consignments one door down to complete the renovations. The extra space has allowed them to stock more mainstream toy lines like Thomas the Tank Engine, Lego, Webkinz, Zhu Zhu Pets and Melissa and Doug. Lynella says the next craze will be rubber band bracelets shaped like animals, which she says is great because they are affordable.

“Now we’re the largest toy store (in Vernon)... we needed more room to carry the toy lines we wanted and more teacher stuff,” said Lynella, noting they also offer a special order service. “We’re seeing more parents because we carry such a large selection of toys now.” For daughters Janessa, 4, and Lynza, 15 months, the store is like the world’s best play area. And while Lynza is still a bit young to provide feedback on the latest gadgets and toys, Janessa is more than happy to make sure everything is kid approved. “She’ll let us know which one she likes the best and they’re probably the ones that sell the best,” grinned Trevor, who left his engineering job four years ago to help with the company. “As it’s coming out of the box, she’ll be looking.” The Henkes are advocates of the downtown experience, so much so that they bought their building four years ago. Having their own shop on 30th Avenue allows them the freedom to have their children in the store, and puts them in the core of what is going on. They are members of the Vernon Downtown Association. “We love the downtown. It’s a little different clientele. We’ve got dedicated customers that will only shop independent stores and want to shop downtown,” said Lynella. “We try to provide stuff you’re not going to find in a big box store. We try to give you service you won’t find in a big box store. “Any gift we’ll wrap it, whether it’s a Christmas present, birthday present. Parents love that. They’re on their way to a birthday party, they stop, they wrap their gift and keep on going. “We wrap hundreds of gifts at Christmas time.”

Chamber seeks transportation strategy for Southern Interior Morning Star Staff

At the 2010 annual general meeting of the B.C. Chamber of Commerce a policy was unanimously passed asking the provincial government to develop a long term strategic approach to transportation in the Southern Interior. The Okanagan Wide Transportation Committee was instrumental in writing the policy, and in ensuring it got to the floor of the AGM Policy session. The Okanagan Transportation Committee consists of chambers from Sicamous to Osoyoos representing more than 4,000 businesses. This Committee has been meeting regularly for several years now as they strongly believe in the need for the Ministry of Transportation to develop an integrated, multi-modal transportation vision for the Southern Interior region. “A focused, long-term plan for our region is critical to

the economic viability of our community and the North Okanagan”, said Greater Vernon chamber president Jonathan Jones. “The investment in planning must be a priority as we continue to experience growth throughout the Okanagan Valley.” The chambers believe there are many opportunities for innovative projects and initiatives that should be looked at directly and indirectly related to transportation issues, which are critical to the future economic success of the province. The need for transportation infrastructure that encourages and supports economic growth is a fundamental element of a prosperous economy. However, the infrastructure that exists in many parts of the province does not support economic growth, and in many areas, results in a deterrent to the prosperity of the surrounding communities.

“As our region grows, successful navigation of the challenges this growth will present to the transportation network and infrastructure will become increasingly important to our economic prosperity,” said Okanagan Transportation Committee chair Norm LeCavalier. “This issue is not going to disappear and we need to start working on this immediately.” The viability of the local and regional economy is directly linked with the transportation network that serves it. This network includes provincial highways, rail systems, local roads, transit service, cycling and pedestrian corridors. The Okanagan chambers, backed by their parent organization, are recommending to the provincial government that it is time to take immediate action to work with municipalities and regional districts to develop a vision for the Okanagan Valley transportation corridor.

A seat at the Roundtable

S

mall Business in Greater Vernon will have their say. B.C.’s Small Business Roundtable will be coming here on Wednesday, July 14. The Small Business Roundtable was established in October, 2005 with a mandate to engage small business owners in dialogue to identify the key issues and opportunities facing small businesses in B.C. Additionally, the roundtable discussions were designed to develop recommendations for small business and government on strategies to enhance small business growth and success. The goals of the Roundtable discussions are to: – Identify, consult, summarize and prioritize in a timely manner the key issues facing small business in B.C. – Provide feedback and advice to government on specific proposals that affect small business. – Summarize findings and recommend actions to be undertaken by the small business sector. – Undertake selected initiatives to improve competitiveness in the small business sector. The last visit to our region was in 2007 where opportunities were identified, such as taking advantage of 2010 Olympics, marketing and education around climate action opportunities, and the

idea to develop a business mentorship program. The issues that were highlighted were recruitment and retention of foreign workers, accreditation of immigrants’ qualifications, training for employees and owner/operators, and PST simplification and streamlining. The website for the Small Business Roundtable touts B.C. as being “the most optimistic small business sector in the country that continues to produce more new small businesses and the fastest pace of small business job growth in Canada.” The assurance from

the Small Business Roundtable is that they are “committed to making B.C. the most small business-friendly jurisdiction in Canada by cutting red tape and making it easier and less expensive to do business in our province. Yet we know we can do more.” That is a direct quote from their website that I believe our business community needs to engage in. The Small Business Roundtable wants to connect with the small business community around the province in a continuing dialogue to identify opportunities and actions to make B.C. the most small business-friendly jurisdiction in Canada.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Thinking it is the fates urging you to take greater risks than you know you should be making is just plain foolish. Wishful thinking will generate faulty judgment and a possible accident.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you come on too strong in your involvements with others, you could quickly find yourself being relegated to the rear ranks. Relax and follow the lead of the group.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Although you won’t put up with anyone attempting to boss you around, this could be your mode of behavior in dealing with others. Stop yourself the minute you sense this happening.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) It’s wonderful to take an interest in others, as long as those interests don’t involve getting some dirt on them. If you should stumble on some juicy information, keep it under your hat.

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

1

A couple of big objectives you are very anxious to achieve are reachable in the year ahead, but only if you’ve prepared yourself well. You must be patient about having everything in place or else you could guarantee yourself a loss.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) When purchasing the goods for today’s celebration, you could tend to act prudently when it comes to essentials, but very wastefully where all the nonessentials are concerned.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Bite your tongue rather than say anything unflattering about another. Remember none of us is perfect, and the next time it could be you about which someone has something negative to say. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If something should challenge the structure of your plans, don’t get all unnerved. The sooner you deal with it, the sooner you can get on with doing things your way.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Make sure your counterpart has the needed qualities, talent or knowledge you lack for competition in a partnership arrangement today. If both are weak in one particular area, you’ll lose. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Be careful about making thoughtless comments that might be offensive to others, even if made in jest, especially when dealing with family or in-laws who tend to be more sensitive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Don’t attempt to accuse another for the reason why you made a mistake, because trying to shift the blame onto someone else is a surefire way of making a bad situation even worse.

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.

New Patients Welcome

Bridge by Phillip Alder Bill Cosby said, “Every closed eye is not sleeping, and every open eye is not seeing.” That is true for many players at the bridge table. Many years ago, a world champion, so sure that declarer was about to take a losing finesse, played her king, not seeing that declarer had gone up with his ace instead of playing his queen. Always keep both eyes open. In this deal, you are in seven hearts. West leads the spade jack. Where would you win the first trick? Some pairs play that a two-heart response to a two-club opening shows 0-5 points without an ace or king. When responder has more points, he usually

bids two diamonds. (A two-no-trump response guarantees five-plus hearts and positive values.) I do not like this style. Look what would happen here. After two clubs - two diamonds, South would rebid two hearts, and North would raise to three hearts. Yes, South would try for a slam, but if North has a king, he might have only four or five points. South would feel much more comfortable if North had responded two no-trump, showing eight-plus points and a balanced hand. And, yes, bidding seven hearts is a gamble when a king is missing. You have 13 tricks: two spades, six hearts, four diamonds and one

club. But to get four diamond tricks, you must draw trumps, unblock your diamond ace-queen, then cross to the board to cash the king and jack, on which you will discard your low clubs. The only entry is in spades, so take the first trick with your ace.

Clyde Burgess

Lt. Col. Otto Henry Hack (Ret)

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Clyde Burgess announce his passing in Victoria BC on June 9th. Clyde was the founder of Valley Fiberbath/Bigfoot Industries in Vernon. Clyde was born in New Osgood Sask, in 1938. He moved his family to Hawaii in 1967 where so many precious memories were made. He packed his family into a Landrover every week-end for an adventure from Kona to Hilo. He often made side trips to the volcano Kilauea or the green or black sand beaches. We always stopped to pick and chew sugar cane along the way. Sometimes we would take the longer way to Hilo via Saddle Road...a sacred Hawaiian road. Dad would tell us amazing stories about this route. We were all consumed...enchanted. We were a happy family and our childhood was awesome. Clyde spent 10 years in the navy and was a Golden Gloves boxer...he taught us how to defend ourselves. Clyde is survived by our wonderful mother, Patricia of Arizona, son David Burgess (Mel) of California, daughters Jean Pearse of Oregon, Linda Jaeger of Vernon and 5 grandchildren. We scattered our father’s ashes along with the ashes of his beloved Schnauzer, Pheobe in Campbell River during low tide. The tide came in and took them to a better place. Ships away dad, smooth seas, smooth sailing.

May 03, 1920 - June 25, 2010 Born in Poland; son of Jacob and Elizabeth Hack. He emigrated to Canada at the age of 3 and became a proud naturalized Canadian citizen on December 29, 1932. He passed away peacefully in Enderby, BC in the comforting arms of his two loving daughters. Otto was predeceased by his daughter Cynthia Elizabeth in 1989 and son-in-law Lawrence Thomas Schaufele in 1973. Otto is survived by his wife of 68 years Matilda (Munk), children; Douglas (Starr), Marlene (Peter) Weintrager, Roger (Marsha), Ken (Amber) and Melanie (Wayne) Klenk; 16 grandchildren and 7 great-grandchildren. Otto enjoyed a distinguished 30 year Canadian military career as an education officer including 5 years with NATO(Metz, France), retiring in 1975. Afterwards he moved to the Okanagan and began a successful real estate career, including owning his own company, DAK Realty. He also dabbled in politics at the federal level and worked for the housing Board of Assessment. A world traveller and an avid outdoor enthusiast, his hobbies included hunting, fishing and camping. A private family viewing and cremation was held at Bowers Funeral Home on June 28, 2010 in Salmon Arm, BC. A memorial service and interment will take place at a later date in Surrey, BC. If so desired, contribution in memory of Otto may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Online condolences may be sent through Otto’s obituary at www.bowersfuneralservice.com

GANZEVELD, Verna May

Jacob (Jake) Neufeld

March 31, 1916 – June 28, 2010 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Verna or Grandma ‘G’ as she was lovingly called by most. Our grandma was a truly remarkable woman, as many of you know. She was one of those women who had an inner strength that helped her to survive through many hardships and losses and still come out a “winner”. She had a great love and respect for the outdoors and wildlife, except for the large rattlesnake that decided to call her flowerbed home at Adventure Bay and was quickly ‘taken care of’ by grandma. She has been a great role model for all of us. Her greatest love was children – she truly loved them as they loved her. Her greatest passion in later years has been her cooking and baking. Hundreds of bags of cookies as well as cakes & pies made there way home with all who came to visit her. She would have been quilting, sewing, crocheting, knitting and reading if her eyes had not failed her in recent years. At the age of 94 she was still very proud of her vegetable garden and flower baskets. Even as ill as she was the past few weeks, Grandma was still looking forward to getting strawberries at the Farmer’s Market and going home to make jam and homemade bread for the grandchildren. Verna was born to Clarence & Irma Price on March 30, 1916 in Ramsey, Alberta. Her parents had come to Alberta from Wyoming with horses and wagon shortly before she was born. She had two younger brothers who predeceased her, Fay and Richard (Dick). The family came to Vernon when she was very young and homesteaded on the West Side of Okanagan Lake, the Commonage, and then at Silver Star. Grandma married Fernando (Ferd) Cover when she was a young girl in the ‘dirty thirties’ and they homesteaded near Bardolph Lake, & Silver Star and later moved to Lumby and finally Vernon which became their home. They had four children, Darwin, Raymond, Marjorie and Jerry. Jerry passed away when he was a little boy. The grandchildren have many fond memories of staying with grandma and grandpa at there home on 29th Street. Ferd died suddenly when he was in his early fifties. Grandma later married Engel Ganzeveld and they lived at Adventure Bay on Okanagan Lake and then moved to Husband Drive overlooking Kalamalka Lake. Engel also had a great love and respect for the outdoors and the two of them spent many happy hours traveling the backtrails of the Okanagan cutting firewood, picking huckleberries, and just enjoying being in the great outdoors. Her extended family too was included in a great many of these adventures. Engel, as well, was taken from her too quickly. Grandma is survived by her sons Darwin (Fuji), Raymond (Dawn), Marjorie (Ted) and by 11 grandchildren, 19 great grandchildren, and 3 great, great grandchildren. As per her request, there will be no services. Happy trails Grandma ‘G’– we are all going to miss you!

It is with deep sadness and a profound sense of loss that the family of Darin Michael Brierly Cunliffe announce his tragic and sudden passing in Vernon, BC at the tender age of 15.

He sadly leaves behind his parents Kim Cunliffe, Russell Cunliffe (Brenda Jennings), brothers Dylan and Brennan and his little sister Ciara.

On June 30, 2010, Ray Gale passed away at his home in Coldstream, BC. Ray was born on July 4, 1935 in Calgary, AB. He will be missed by his wife, Marion; two sons; Rodney (Heather) Gale, Spruce Grove, AB and Rick (Sharon) Gale, Lacombe, AB; two daughters, Theresa (Tim) Dykes, Stony Plain, AB and Kelly (Stuart) Maxwell, Devon, AB; eight step-children, David (Doris) Dykes, Darwell, AB, Tim (Theresa) Dykes, Stony Plain, AB, Chris (Barb) Dykes, Onoway, AB, Kevin Dykes, Edmonton, AB, Karen MacDonald and Allan Bakay, both, Vernon, BC, Kevin (Heather) Bakay of Kelowna, BC and Kim Stobbe, Vernon, BC; twenty-one grandchildren; one great-grandson; one brother, Ron (Olwyn) Gale, Sundre, AB; one sister, Dorothy (Jack) Horne, Carbon, AB and numerous extended family members and friends. Ray was preceded in death by his first wife, Selma; and one brother, Gordon. Ray loved his Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ in whom he had a deep and strong faith and his next greatest love was family, keeping up to date with their lives while spending as much time as possible with them. He never forgot his military days, joining the Navy in 1953 but later returning to his farm and ranching roots where he took great joy in teaching his grandchildren to ride. Moving to Coldstream he then enjoyed operating his saddle shop at O’Keefe Ranch for the past five years. Ray had a great love for all sports and was a staunch Oiler’s fan. Those wishing to pay their last respects to Ray may do so at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Sunday, July 4th, 2010 from 7:00-8:00 P.M. The Funeral Service will be held at Grace Bible Church, 5661 Silver Star Road, on Monday, July 5th, 2010 at 11:00 A.M. with Reverend Larry Woelke officiating. Another funeral service and interment will follow in Darwell, AB later in the week. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Ray to the Canadian Cancer Society, #104-3402-27th Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S1
