Gertie Schmidt holds Kato Jr., a wallaroo, the smallest of the Greater Kangaroos, at Day Break Adult Day Centre. Gateby and Noric House residents, and children of staff members, also came to see the 11-monthold wallaroo who has been out of his mother’s pouch for only six weeks.

Suspect remanded in custody ROGER KNOX

A break-and-enter suspect facing multiple charges is staying in jail. The 48-year-old man made his first court appearance Tuesday to answer to seven counts of breakand-enter to commit an indictable

offence and one count of mischief. A man was arrested last week in the downtown core after Vernon RCMP received a report of a breakand-enter at a business in the 2900 block of 30th Avenue shortly after midnight. A window had been smashed to gain entry and liquor was taken from inside.

An hour later, police came across a man carrying a bag over his shoulder, and the suspect was found to be in possession of liquor. Michael John Tyson has been remanded in custody until his next scheduled court appearance July 28.

Kipp Waechter says marital woes and a cocaine problem led him to rob a Vernon business in November. And, because he pleaded guilty to the offence, expressed sincere remorse and had a minor criminal record, Waechter, 38, was sentenced to 18 months in prison for the crime by Judge Mark Takahashi in Vernon Provincial Court Wednesday. Takahashi gave Waechter credit for seven months already served in custody, meaning his total new jail time for the offence will be 11 months. Waechter pleaded guilty to robbing Bakers Dozen on Nov. 14, 2009. He went into the store, got the attention of a clerk, indicated to her he had a weapon under his shirt, which turned out to be only his hand, and demanded cash from both of the tills. The clerk complied and Waechter ran out of the store with the money. He ditched his clothes between some nearby dumpsters which were found by a police service dog. DNA on the clothes led police to Waechter. Given the chance to address the court at the end of the hour-long proceeding, Waechter explained his time in jail gave him the chance to reflect on the robbery and the impact it created on his life, and the life of the Bakers Dozen employees. “I realize the fallout of my actions from the owners of the store to the clerk to my own children and family,” said Waechter, appearing by video. “With respect to the people of Vernon, I made a terrible decision at a time in my life I never thought I’d be at. “I was using drugs to mask things.” Court heard how Waechter’s 18-year marriage, started to crumble in August of 2009, and how he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder, the result of witnessing an altercation in downtown Vernon between two men, telling the men he

was going to report it to police, and then was assaulted by the pair. Waechter had his head slammed into the vehicle and was put in the trunk of the car and driven around for five days by the unidentified men before he managed to escape. The incident led to an addiction of pain killers, which graduated into alcohol and cocaine abuse. Waechter had sought out mental health programs to help get better, but treatment programs for his mental health and his substance abuse were not made available to him while incarcerated. Crown counsel Murray Kaay and defence lawyer Joe Deuling both stated that a pre-sentence report and psychiatric report on Waechter showed the accused did show remorse for his actions. Kaay sought a sentence of two years while Deuling asked Takahashi to possibly consider a suspended sentence, which would have meant no additional jail time. While taking all of the submissions into account, Takahaski made it clear that the incident impacted the victims at the store. “It’s a frightening thing for someone who is making maybe minimum wage that they’re told they could be substantially harmed if they don’t do something,” said Takahaski, in reference to Waechter’s actions that day, prior to passing sentence. “It is not a small thing in the life of that person.” Besides the jail sentence, Waechter was also placed on two years probation upon his release, which will be served in the Cariboo, where he is moving to start a new job. Conditions of probation include not to go to Bakers Dozen or have any direct or indirect contact with the clerk. Waechter must get counselling and abstain from drug and alcohol use. He was also given a 10-year firearms prohibition and ordered to pay $1,200 restitution to the business.

North Okanagan rural communities will have more police presence. The Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP detachment has announced the creation of a North Okanagan rural unit which will police the west side of Okanagan Lake down to LaCasa Resort, Spallumcheen, Armstrong, Falkland, Enderby and the North Okanagan Regional District areas. “Collectively, we’ve combined these areas together to create an integrated approach to effective policing of the region as a whole,� said detachment Supt. Reg Burgess. The unit, which began July 5, will include 26 police resource positions, including two First Nations officers, two general investigative officers and two patrol supervisory sergeants. Members will continue to report to the actual departments they’re assigned to. ArmstrongSpallumcheen has eight assigned officers, Enderby has six and Falkland and the regional districts have three each. The creation of the unit does not affect the Vernon detachment, that is, no Vernon members are lost to the new unit. “Our goal is to provide the best possible police service to everyone in the North Okanagan with the number of police officers we have,� said Burgess. The unit was created in part after at least one community expressed frustration over what they perceived as a lack of police presence. Officials in Enderby felt their city was getting the short end of the stick when it came to police resources, stating they had problems with theft and vandalism. Coun. Greg McCune told The Morning Star there were

a number of incidents of theft at the community campground on the July long weekend, and he believed the need to patrol the Funtastic Slo-Pitch Festival in the city may have diverted officers. The rural unit is being seen as a good move by Enderby Mayor Dee Wejr. “I think the new unit is great, to tell you the truth, because I’ve already noticed a difference in police presence around Enderby,� said Wejr. “Whether that is because us verbalizing our unhappiness or not, I’m not sure, but I think it’s a step in the right direction. If it works, great. We do feel a little under policed in the community.� Wejr feels the new unit will make residents feel safer and help out the RCMP members as well. “It must be a struggle for them. It wasn’t the members we were complaining about, it was the fact that the system didn’t seem to be working,� she said. “It’ll be a matter of waiting to see how it goes but I think it’s a positive step.� Burgess said a new shift schedule will be introduced in September that he believes will further create efficiencies to the delivery of police service.

Greens elect new federal candidate Morning Star Staff

After two rallies this week, Erik Bjorgan won the federal candidacy of the local Green Party in an actively contested election Wednesday night. “I’m utterly humbled by the amount of support people have shown for this process and for me,” said Bjorgan, 32. “With such support I’m convinced I’ll be able to run a good and empowered campaign.” Party members gathered in Salmon Arm Tuesday night and in Vernon Wednesday evening to vote from among three candidates. Bjorgan was opposed by Paul Noble and Jade St. Onge, both from the Salmon Arm region. Bjorgan, who now begins the process of

He was married in 2005 to Marla, who works as a public health nurse at the Salmon Arm Health Unit. Former Green Party candidate Allen gave Bjorgan a hug and was pleased with the result. “Greens have made great progress in a short time,” she said. “The need to think, work and plan green becomes more immediate... with every oil spill, heat wave and job loss we witness. “Now we have the best candidate in Okanagan-Shuswap.”

Bella Vista plan gets unanimous approval ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

With a couple of amendments, the Bella Vista West Neighbourhood Plan moved one step closer to becoming part of Vernon’s official community plan (OCP). City council gave a unanimous third reading to a bylaw that would include the Bella Vista West plan in the OCP at its regular meeting Monday. Mayor Wayne Lippert and Coun. Jack Gilroy were absent from Monday’s meeting,

and Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe excused herself from the proceedings over a conflict of interest. The amendments, as initiated by Coun. Bob Spiers, would see a change in designation to allow apartment housing at a Tronson Road property, along with the construction of a community trail. A public hearing on the plan was held June 28, attended by close to 20 people, and there was one public submission opposed to the housing

designation change. The Bella Vista West Neighbourhood Plan area consists of 296 hectares located eight kilometres west of Vernon city centre. The area is defined by the shoreline of Okanagan Lake to the south and west, the city boundary with Okanagan Indian Band land to the north and property parcel boundaries on the east. It was in 1996 that council voted to include the Bella Vista West Neighbourhood Plan in the OCP, but since it was

adopted, the number of homes in the plan area has grown to 220 in 2009 from about 50 in 1996. During the OCP review process, a handful of property owners presented requests to review designations in the plan area in addition to expanding the plan area boundaries.. Council instructed staff to conduct a review of the Bella Vista plan. Final adoption of the bylaw is expected at the next regular meeting on July 26.

Officials work to ID body ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Dental records will be used to determine the identity of a man’s body found Tuesday in the Shuswap River. The identification process is now in the hands of the B.C. Coroners Service. Vernon Search and Rescue personnel were conducting a search on the river for a Salmon Arm rafter who went missing in the water June 28 when they discovered a body shortly before noon Tuesday in a logjam. The body was located 3.3-kilometres downstream from the Ashton Creek Bridge. The 20-year-old rafter from Salmon Arm went missing in the river on June 28 at around 3

p.m. while floating with a friend. The two friends were on their second run on the river, near the Mabel Lake Resort, when they were upset in the current and dumped off their rafts. One man made it to shore, the other was last

seen calling for help. Neither rafter was wearing a life jacket. Crews searched the water that evening and the next morning, but the search was hampered because of the fast, high condition of the water. No names have been released by police.

“Here we are spending billions on shortterm stimulus and yet a fraction of that amount is needed to protect and grow permanent, well-paying, established jobs.” “Local government and business recognize that restoring service to this line is of the utmost importance,” said Hansma. “The regional impact of a permanent loss will be massive. Without strategic action by the federal government, we will pay dearly in terms of our competitiveness and lost opportunities.” “The apparent absence of federal support is baffling,” said

Bengtson. “It goes directly against the Conservative Party’s stated principle to enhance competitiveness and productivity by improving the efficiency and integration of our transportation systems.” “It is time that the federal government becomes a partner in this. It has a role to play,” said Hansma. “This role is not out of line with its political philosophy nor the general commitments that it has made on paper. Our elected official, who sits as a member of the governing party, needs to fight for our interests and our future prosperity.”

Duties of the best man

W

edding season is upon us, and with it comes the most infamously fun and miserable tradition of all — the bachelor and bachelorette parties. As you can see by my photo, I am in fact a girl. But a close relationship with my brother, and his decision to have a small wedding with a small wedding party, has somehow put me on deck to be the best man at his August nuptials. Luckily for me his friends took it upon themselves to plan the bachelor party. Although in hindsight he might have preferred it if I had done it. My prestigious title of best man got me an invite to what I soon realized was more of a torture session than a party. First I should explain a bit about my big brother. Although at the prime partying age of 26, Kyle is Jessica Schwitek more of a cross between a 13-year-old boy and a 70-year-old man. He can play video games for hours, and never passes up an opportunity to do something that could break a bone, but tends to get cranky if he’s not in bed by 9:30 p.m. He never quite got the hang of drinking, and with the exception of a short stint of pyromania at age seven, he is completely unfamiliar with breaking the rules. All he wanted to do before tying the knot was go rock climbing with friends. I would have given it to him. Apparently I was unaware of what a bachelor party is really supposed to be. Gone are the days when a groom looks forward to his last night of freedom, drinking and hanging with the boys in comfort while his brideto-be worries about the trouble he might get into. Well, she still worries, but for different reasons. Before a groom got into trouble because it was the one night he got to do whatever he wanted to do. Now he gets into trouble because it is the one night he has to do whatever his friends make him do. I don’t know where this tradition started, but it was only made worse when a poor unsuspecting groom was abandoned on a Las Vegas rooftop in the hugely popular film The Hangover.

AT RANDOM

Whatever its origin, it’s now ingrained in men’s minds that bachelor parties equal pain and suffering. And that’s exactly what my brother got. The day began with a kidnapping from work. His thoughtful friends knew he wouldn’t want to spend the whole day in work clothes, so they brought him an outfit to wear. After putting on his hot pink mini-shorts, pink shirt, fish-net stockings and polka-dot visor that was surely stolen from someone’s grandmother, he was ready to go — or so he thought. Another friend of his is also getting married this summer, so they made it a dual bachelor party. After groom number two was dressed in an identical outfit, one surprise was left. A friend reached into his bag and pulled out a pair of pink handcuffs, bound the two together and then duct taped the keyholes so the locks couldn’t be picked. The “two ladies” as they were now referred to, were then paraded around to several public locations. Everywhere we went, people somehow knew what was going on. The waitress at lunch brought out two free shots. She dropped the glasses in front of my brother and his friend and said, “don’t worry, they’re not strong. We made girly ones for you.” Everyone was in on the joke — except for the two miserable grooms that is. Eventually my brother had enough and his friends eased up. The handcuffs were removed so the two didn’t have to walk into public washrooms hand in hand anymore. The next day his fiancee explained how lucky he was, and that his friends had gone relatively easy on him. And she was right. I’ve heard countless horror stories of painful rituals that men have gone through during bachelor parties that more closely resembled fraternity hazings than a celebration. The only smile that beamed across my brother’s face came when he imagined what sinister things I, who am planning the bachelorette party, plan to do to his bride. But girls just don’t think that way. Aside from making his traitorous Calgary Flames loving fiance wear my Pavel Bure jersey, I don’t intend to make her do anything other than what she wants at her own party. Girls believe this noble tradition is about making the bride happy, which I suspect is why the only girl typically allowed at the aforementioned bachelor party is the stripper.

When was the last time you borrowed a cup of sugar from your neighbour? Or poked your head over the fence to say hello or offer a friendly wave? Do you even know their names? If you’re a little more neighbourly than some, or have found yourself living in the same quiet neighbourhood for many years, the answer should be easy. However, for many of us in today’s world — chock full of high-density development, secondary suites and rental houses with a revolving cast of tenants — the answer will test the limits of our memory. It’s the world we live now, but it was not always thus in the Okanagan. It wasn’t too long ago where it seemed everyone knew everyone, and a friendly face was just one door away, should you need anything from a kitchen condiment to a borrowed tool to a last-minute babysitter for your kids. And remember Block Watch and Block Parents? These neighbour-helping-neighbour movements that were popular in the 1970s and ‘80s are still active now, but there seems to be fewer telltale signs posted in windows. And while such developments might be perceived as signs of the times more so than any conscious effort to ignore those around us, it is something of a shame, considering how beneficial such neighbourly relationships can be. At the very least, it helps to know neighbours’ names, and maybe have their phone numbers scribbled somewhere. It is simply nice to see a familiar face when you’re out washing the car, or know that if you go away for a week, there’s someone to water your plants and pick up your mail. Some say progress has made our world a lot smaller. Perhaps it’s time to make sure we don’t allow our neighbourhoods to lose that small-world feel. ---Kelowna Capital News

Recession? What recession?

egarding the recent article on the $3,000,000 increase in one year bringing the city hall payroll to $18, 800,000, and the addition of 58 people to the staffing level since 2007. Incredibly, this all happened while the private sector (read taxpayers), was going through a terrible recession with many cutbacks and job losses. In answer to your reporter's questions, Coun. Jack Gilroy and the mayor came up with the old bromide that you can't get good people unless you pay for them, etc., etc., etc. Nowhere was any mention made of trying to cut costs to stay in line with taxTRANSIT SERVICE I am encouraged that Vernon and possibly Coldstream municipalities appear willing to support expansion of the existing bus service to the University of British Columbia despite the lack of interest from their regional partners. I have been commuting to UBC on the #90 since it went into service and I look forward to an expanded service that will provide greater flexibility for people travelling along its route. The people responsible for launching the existing service should be commended for developing a good schedule with limited resources. The service however does not meet the needs of a large group of commuters – students with early and late classes, staff at UBC with work commitments outside 8:30 to 4:30, and people who work in Kelowna and live in the North Okanagan. Armstrong director, Mr. Pieper, needs to focus on the benefits of public transit and not the fact that he sees “some buses half-full.” Projected growth at UBC’s Okanagan campus together with improved service will

We had incredible live music provided by local youth bands. The support from The City of Vernon and numerous businesses and organizations was greatly appreciated. This was truly a community supported event for and by the youth. A huge thank you goes to all the teens, their parents and especially the school administrators and teachers who made this event a success.

The simple outcome of a reduction in single-vehicle traffic on Highway 97 that will result from an expansion to the current service should be sufficient to get the support of all local regional governments.

YAA Fest (Youth Achievement and Appreciation Festival) was spearheaded by members of the CBYST (Community Based Youth Services Team), a representative committee of youth serving programs and organizations that meet monthly to share information and identify and fix gaps in services to youth.

going on. Indeed, when Bob Spiers and Patrick Nicol suggested that we should follow The latest was the incredible two shows of the dance school SODA. It always amazes me of the energy projected by the youth starting at the age of two. The very young ones are so cute and of course they steal and captivate the hearts of everyone and the memory lasts a long time. Many relatives of the participants come with great anticipation and are not to be disappointed. Grandparents are invited to see their grandchildren perform. Close to two hours of wholesome entertainment in a setting of an auditorium that gives excellent comfortable seating, it certainly invites one to return the following year. After our second year, this indeed might become a yearly event to look forward to. The management of SODA is to be congratulated for these inspiring recitals. Some very brave mothers participated in the show as well, to their surprise they received rock star applause from an enthusiastic audience. Their performance is an inspiration to follow by their children, talking about being an example….WOW!

Hurry In!

Penticton's lead and have an efficiency expert check Vernon's bloated payroll, it was voted down by council, with the same two gentlemen shrugging it off and saying "It would send the wrong message!" If Penticton can reduce their staff by two senior supervisors and 10 other staff and still function, it is worth a look. Regarding Gilroy's remark of sending the wrong message, how right he is, only the message has gone out to the taxpayers, that another $3,000,000, or so, isn't worth getting excited about. I know the only two councilors that I'll be voting for in the next election! W. Crosby

Keep it up parents and we certainly will return. Ary & Charlette Sala OUR VIEWS Richard Rolke's article in a recent Morning Star was so bang on it incited me to write this letter. What Mr. Foster and the rest of our politicians don't get or are refusing to get is that we voted to have someone to represent our views - not yours! Mr. Foster, I don't care what you think regarding this tax. Your riding has let you know in no uncertain terms what they think, and that's all that should matter to you and your boss. I applaud Blair Lekstrom's intestinal fortitude for standing up for the wishes of those in his riding. I didn't think there was any politician left out there that could do that anymore. I envy the people in his riding. Kudos to you Mr. Lekstrom! It just seems to me that elected officials seem to be getting more and more arrogant as time goes by. Perhaps it is time to stand up and be counted i.e. fight the HST! And Mr. Foster - don't get too cozy in that chair of

yours in Victoria! William Mikoula

An RCMP officer inspects damage to a houseboat after a speedboat crashed into the larger vessel, killing its driver July 3. on Shuswap Lake. “Go hang out at Copper Island at the cliffs for 10 minutes. You’ll see irresponsible boating all over the place.” Seys would like to see a police presence on the lake, and more enforcement. But he said alcohol consumption when boating ranks low on his list of dangers. “I think most people are actually pretty responsible when it comes to that side of things.” What he does see are boaters driving dangerously. He gives examples. “Towing tubers through a crowd of 100 boats that have people swimming around,” he says. “We have people that will tow kids on their tube into our marina for fuel, at full rope length, 60 feet back.” Okangan Shuswap MP Colin Mayes, a licensed pleasure boat operator himself, says he feels the current regulations are satisfactory. “I have personally

taken the course and understand the regulations. What we need is for people to obey those rules.” Mayes notes more enforcement could help, but adds, “It’s a big lake. It is so difficult to cover that 24-hours a day.” Kevin Wonacott, owner of Captain’s Cove Marina in Canoe, also emphasizes the need for enforcement on the lake. “I think the boating licence is good, but I think the big thing is if there was more enforcement on the lake. I see them (police) out about once every two weeks on the lake.” He notes the boating licence doesn’t mean people can actually drive a boat, but it’s a good step – albeit one that won’t prevent people from boating dangerously if there’s no enforcement. “If people are going to do stupid stuff, they’re going to do stupid stuff.” Dave Hawker, an

instructor with Drive a Boat Canada, is, like Seys, in favour of a practical test. “Until you get out and do practical training, it’s not going to make a whole lot of difference.” Hawker, who lives in Scotch Creek, predicts there will come a day when a practical test will be mandatory for an operating card, but he cautions it will be difficult to set up and administer. At Transport Canada, which is responsible for transportation policies and programs, spokesperson Melanie Quesnel wrote in an e-mail that improvements to the pleasure craft operator competency test will be introduced in the fall. They include taking away the responsibility for designing test questions from private sector course providers and turning it over to Transport Canada. The new test will not include a practical exam.

The way the rules stand today, you don’t need to have ever stepped aboard a boat in order to be licensed to operate one. In the wake of the July 3 collision between a houseboat and a speedboat in Magna Bay on Shuswap Lake that killed one person and injured eight others, there have been calls for increased safety measures on the lake – including a more practical approach to licensing boat operators. Gareth Seys, general manager of Shuswap Marina in Blind Bay, would like to see more hands-on instruction for those planning to drive a boat. Written testing just isn’t enough. “I’m a strong believer there should be a practical side to it as well,” he said. When his marina rents boats, staff spend time on the water – showing renters how to park boats, showing them basic manoeuvering tips, and encouraging them to stay as far away from other boaters as possible. “In my eyes, for this lake in particular, demonstration is actually more useful than the government written test.” Having a pleasure craft operator certificate became mandatory in September 2009, but there are still an estimated three million Canadian boaters who don’t have one. Alternatively, a boater can show proof of having completed a boating safety course prior to April 1, 1999 or have completed a rental-boat safety checklist. Seys said dangerous boating is too common

News Houseboat driver remembered by loved ones MARTHA WICKETT Black Press

Family and friends of 53-year-old Ken (Kenny) William Brown gathered at the Chase Community Hall last Friday to remember this well-loved man. Brown was killed the night of Saturday, July 3 when an 18-foot Campion runabout speedboat collided with the 40-foot houseboat he was driving, lodging itself in the cabin of the houseboat. Brown was raised in Chase and the Shuswap, and worked for CP Rail for 22 years. His obituary notes that he loved boating, golfing, parasailing, travelling and spending time with family and friends. Leon Reinbrecht of Celista was driving the speedboat when it collided with Brown’s houseboat. Reinbrecht told

reporters he would like to explain what happened, but he has retained a lawyer who has advised him not to talk about the crash. He would say only: “I feel terrible about it and there’s not much I could have done. It’s something that happened and they’ll figure out everything in the investigation.” When the crash occurred in Magna Bay on Shuswap Lake about 11:20 p.m. that Saturday, boats were leaving the area after watching Canada Day weekend fireworks. Thirteen people, including a baby, were onboard the houseboat, and three were on the speedboat. All the people involved were local residents. It was miraculous, say some observers, that not more people were killed when the speedboat

embedded itself tightly inside the midsection of the houseboat. One witness suggested that a steel wakeboard tower on the speedboat might have slowed it down as it entered the houseboat, possibly saving lives. Eight people were taken to Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops. The baby was not injured. All but two people were released on Sunday, and the remaining man and

woman were discharged Wednesday. Sgt. Troy Beauregard of the Chase detachment said the investiga-

tion could take a month or more, because there are so many witnesses and so much evidence involved.

Award a surprise for GoGetter Morning Star Staff

Grace Urquhart said she was wondering why so many of her work colleagues were in the office. Then Krista Kay and Lynn Belsher handed her the trademark GO Award green and white balloons and gifts for being selected as the March 2010 Grand GO Getter and she realized what was happening. “Wow. Thank you everyone. This is really nice,” said Urquhart, who has been a realtor for 25 years. Kay read from the nomination: “Grace closed the purchase of a mobile home for my spouse and I. In September, my spouse of six years announced he was leaving me. Grace came by my place in September to see how the renovations were going and found me crying and painting walls. She asked what was going on and I told her I was trying to work, to move and keep plugging away to keep ahead of the contractors and was absolutely exhausted. “She said, ‘How can I help you?’ Grace, who had known me for exactly one-and-a-half hours as we had filled out our real estate papers, helped me move my belongings to my new home for six hours the following day. “She was more than a realtor, she became my new friend. I was invited to spend Christmas with

Okanagan Landing tradition hits the century mark JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

For the past 100 years, the community of Okanagan Landing has been celebrating the Okanagan Landing Regatta. This family-oriented event takes place on Sunday and has fun activities planned for the whole day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a great community event,â&#x20AC;? said Kate Cumming, one the regattaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s organizers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing it every year for, well, a really long time.â&#x20AC;? The regatta has been taking place in the same spot since 1910. There have been a few changes over the years, but they have maintained some of the classic crowd pleasers. Sunday will start off with a pancake breakfast at 8 a.m. And the fun will continue all day with events like the sandcastle building contest (9 to 11 a.m.), dinghy boat races (noon), a watermelon eating contest (1 p.m.) and an antique car show (all day). The kids will keep busy in the bounce-nplay from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., or with the mural wall and face painting happening all day. All activities are free, except the pancake breakfast (8 to 11 a.m.) which is $4 for adults and $2 for children. The event has grown over the last few years, bringing in not only Okanagan Landing residents, but people from Vernon as well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we had upwards of 400 people,â&#x20AC;?

said Cumming. Event organizers are

hoping for good weather, but they do have tents on

hand in the event of rain. Everyone is wel-

come, so head out to Paddlewheel Park, at

Impact outgun Chick Kickers Morning Star Staff

Shelinda Morin and Edeen Ramsey each potted a pair of goals as Okanagan Impact outgunned the Vernon Chick Kickers 5-3 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #1. Morin scored once off a corner, and was assisted by the lovely and talented Kris Ponto on her second strike. Ramsey netted her first goal on a breakaway and was assisted by Ponto on the other. The Impact’s Leanne Robertson opened the scoring on a stellar penalty kick after a Kickers’ foul inside the 18-yard box. Chick Kickers (5-5-2) quickly responded with a goal by Bonnie Mann, who kept her cool and played past the keeper to put the ball in the net. The Kickers’ Geri O’Brien picked up the rebound off Mann’s shot and tapped it past the keeper to trail 3-2 at halftime. The second half opened with another scoring drive by the Impact (8-1-4), who struck twice more. They were unable to push past the determined but tired Chick Kickers defence for more. Instead, O’Brien added her second tally with a clean shot past Impact keeper Lisa Wright in the dying seconds. The Impact got great aggressive goaltending from Wright, and solid efforts from Jodi Hawthorne and Lisa Boer. Tillicum Controllers made the most of their visit to Salmon Arm Tuesday night, earning a 4-1 decision over Shuswap Merlot. Jacquie Nuyens put Tillicum ahead early with a hard shot to the top right corner.

Minutes later, Corrine McWhinney delivered a wide corner kick to Val Percy, who lobbed it toward the net, allowing Krista Backer to make a diving header to the far left side. In the second half, McWhinney fed another corner to the net that resulted in a deflection past the Shuswap keeper. Sara Glen then fed a spectacular pass to McWhinney, who managed a perfect lob over the goalie to complete the Controller attack. The Controllers (5-5-2) maintained control with great passing and defensive plays by Jody Pope, Brandie Hunter and Val Percy. Midfielders Angela Durfeld and Shaun Yargeau were consistent in keeping the play moving forward while goalie Leslie Epp made some great saves. Merlot fell to 3-7-1. In Competitve Division play, Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers used a strong second half on their way to a 4-0 win over Fusion Tuesday at Marshall #4. Ally Dodds scored on a breakaway late in the first half to give Checkers the lead at the break. In the second half, Alana Rehman, Lisa Arrotta (penalty kick) and Kim Teichman, against her former teammates, on a great cross-field feed from Irene Arrotta, completed the scoring as the floss crew improved to 9-2. Fusion are 2-9. Lisa Arrotta earned the shutout with support from Woman of the Match Kelsey Halvorson, who was solid on the backline, keeping the Fusion forwards at bay. Delinah Erbenich put on a show as AF

Blazers pummeled NET Celtics 7-0 Tuesday night at Marshall Field #3. Erbenich earned the natural hat trick with Paula Brownlee assisting on her first two goals, and Ally Cummings on her third. Anita Csatho put the Blazers (7-4) up by four before the half with some help from the crossbar. Eileen Pelliccia scored a beautiful head-

er 15 minutes in to the second half, and Cummings notched the Blazers sixth before Erbenich rounded out the offence with her fourth of the game. Keeper Katie Hatten earned the shutout. Jane Higgins, Amanda Pecor, Signi MacNeill and Rhonda Catt all had stellar games on defence. Celtics dipped to 4-7.

Tigers ready for championship rematch with Venom GRAEME CORBETT

want to repeat as champions. “They’re a good team – they work hard and they have a well-coached offence,” said Short. “With an offensive team like that, you can’t take any stupid penalties.” In recent years, Short admits maintaining team discipline hasn’t exactly been the Tigers’ forte. Far from it. He credits last year’s trip to provincials, where Vernon earned a silver medal, as an incentive for the change in play. “Everybody’s buying in. We’ve got a lot of our guys back from last year and we’re realizing it’s a lot easier to play at even strength than being a man down all the time.” The Cats are fully aware that Kamloops will be seeking redemption for last year’s final. The Tigers battled back from

Morning Star Staff

There isn’t a lot to choose between the Vernon Re/ Max Tigers and Kamloops Venom heading into Game 1 of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League championship series tonight at Wesbild Centre. The defending champion Tigers finished just two points ahead of Kamloops in the regular season, netting one more goal (126) than the Venom to boast the league’s best offence. Kamloops, meanwhile, allowed the fewest goals (71), but that’s only three less than Vernon gave up. The only real statistical difference between the two teams is discipline, as the Tigers earned 114 fewer penalty minutes than Kamloops. It is one trend Vernon captain Robbie Short knows his team will need to continue if they

a 2-0 series deficit against the Venom to win the title. Venom head coach Doug Clark said he doesn’t want to see that happen again. “We do feel like we want to get back at them after last year,” he said. “We feel like maybe we have something to prove.” Having won the most recent meeting between the two teams, handing the Tigers their only loss of the season on June 20 at Memorial Arena, the Venom feel they have a bit of momentum in their favour. “That’s pretty big,” Clark said. “It showed us that if we play within ourselves and stick to our system, we can handle them.” In the Venom, the Tigers will face three of the top-four TOJLL scorers. Rookie sniper Quinn Smith led the Venom with 26-30-56, and veteran Riley Donahue pocketed 27-17-44.

Lil’ Fruck shines at show JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

The sun glistened off the cherryred paint on J.R. Muncaster’s pride and joy, a little pick-up truck aptly name Lil’ Fruck. For the past eight years Muncaster, owner of Freedom Motorsports, has been working away, slowly making the changes and modifications that made his 1977 Datsun King Cab Pick-up the award-winner it is today. “I was pretty surprised,” said Muncaster about taking second place in the modified truck category at the very prestigious Peach City Beach Cruise Car Show in Penticton on June 27. “It’s pretty special because it’s arguably the most prestigious show in the valley, and it is the largest show of its kind in the Interior,” said Muncaster. There were 749 entrants in the car show, 58 of whom entered themselves in the modified truck category. A modest Muncaster reluctantly spoke about how special it was to win in a show that uses peer votes to determine the winners. It was the 749 par-

Cats think defence Continued from A23 The Tigers answer Kamloops’ big guns with Craig Bigsby (22-16-38), Brooks Christensen (15-20-15) and Short (12-17-29). “They’re more of a run-and-gun type team where we’re more defensive minded. Our styles usually cancel each other out so they’re pretty close games,” said Short. Added Tigers’ head coach Bryan Klein: “The attitude is there. They’re really pumped and they really like playing this team. Our defence likes the challenge of playing their big shooters. It will be interesting to see which one prevails.” Clark added the Venom will have to avoid falling into the Tigers’ trap of chippy play. “We’ll have to focus on pushing the ball up the floor and trying not to engage in the extra-curricular activities they’re going to try to engage us in,” he said. “They’re a big, strong team and they do whatever it takes to win. We know that. “We’ll expect them to try to break us down from the bottom like they have all year. They’ll be very physical in their end and we know they have very good goaltending.” Game 2 goes Monday night (all games 7:30 p.m.) at Memorial Arena in Kamloops, with Game 3 returning to Wesbild on Tuesday. If necessary, Games 4 and 5 would go Thursday and Saturday night respectively in Kamloops and Vernon (Civic Arena).

J.R. Muncaster, co-owner of Freedom Motorsports, stands with his modified 1977 Datsun King Cab Pick-up which took second place in its category at Penticton's prestigious Peach City Beach Cruise car show.

“...it’s arguably the most prestigious show in the valley...” — J.R. Muncaster ticipants, not viewers or judges, who were the ones voting in each category to award top spot for hot rods coming from all over North America.

“There was a car there all the way from the TexasLouisiana border,” said Muncaster. This is the first time Muncaster and Lil’ Fruck have won a competition, and Muncaster couldn’t be happier that it was this one. If he were to start over today, Muncaster couldn’t build the Datsun for less than $60,000 to $70,000. “I haven’t put quite

that much into it, but I’m getting there,” he said. Even though the hot rod is completely different “from bumper to bumper” than it was when he bought it, Muncaster says he is always working on Lil’ Fruck. There is always something else that can be made better. But somewhere down the line Muncaster will find a new project. He has visions of a

1941 Willys Coupe, but says that he could put $150,000 into a car like that, so it may just be a dream. “They’re fun though. One of them even took first place in a different category at the beach cruise,” said Muncaster. But even if he starts a new project, Lil’ Fruck will still have a place in his garage. “Oh, I think I’ll keep it,” he said.

UBC Okanagan midfielder Justin Phillips connected with three first-half goals to lead Turn-Key Controls to a 7-1 rout over Concept Physio in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League play Wednesday nightat Marshall #4. The West Kelowna product completed the natural hat trick before Concept, who battled hard in the half, scored late on a Mac Campbell goal to leave the game 3-1 at halftime. Turn-Key, who improved to 5-6-1, continued to roll the offence in the second half. Preston Tucker was stopped by Concept keeper Riley Spraggs numerous times early in the half before he finally got on the scoresheet off a Kyle Goodgrove feed. Tucker added another goal, burying a beautiful header from a Phillips corner kick. He then sprung Goodgrove

Concept Physio's Alex Macdougall goes up against Turn-Key Controls' Kyle Goodgrove in a bid for the ball in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League action Wednesday night at Marshall Field. The Turn-Key crew won 7-1. with a through ball that Goodgrove converted to make it 6-1. Chris Harris completed the Turn-Key scoring in the dying minutes, fooling Spraggs with a perfect shot from 30 yards out. The Concept crew dipped to 0-11. The host Nation of Domination Eagle Homes salvaged a

2-2 draw with North Enderby Timber Monday night in Salmon Arm. Trailing 2-1 at halftime, NOD equalized 25 minutes into the second half. NET’s Brent Poulsen, deftly corralling an Andy Stein free kick, opened the scoring with a shot to the corner.

John Orton, with an easy tap-in off a Graham Ross corner, completed the timbermen attack. NET surged in the final 10 minutes, but couldn’t bury the goahead goal. The Wednesdaynight match between Monashee Surveying and Kal Sports Bar was postponed.

Louis boys earn Vegas berth Morning Star Staff

Christmas could come early for father-and-son rodeo duo Cecil and Bobby Louis when they compete at the World Series of Team Roping, Dec. 7-11 in Las Vegas. Having qualified for the event, held at the South Point Hotel and Casino’s equestrian centre, Cecil and Bobby will be competing for the $200,000 firstplace prize. Cecil, a rodeo veteran of more than 35 years, qualified at an event earlier this year in Arizona. Bobby earned his entry to the Vegas showdown with a third-place finish at a rodeo last weekend in Claresholm, Alta. Bobby has been roping with his father since he was 10-years-old, and he says they connection they’ve developed over the years helps keep them in sync. “It’s not any different than being (Vancouver Canuck twins) Daniel and Henrik Sedin. You always know where he’s going to go and what he’s going to

do,” said Bobby. “We’ve just got to draw the right animal.” Meanwhile, Louis Estates is hosting their inaugural Truck Roping competition, Saturday, July 24 at their arena on Westside Road. More than $45,000 in prizes will be up for grabs, including a 2010 Ford F-150 (based on enough entries) to the hi-point roper of the day, and a $2,000 bonus for the fastest time in the first round. Admission is free for spectators, and there will be concessions, a raffle ($1,000 for first place, $500 for second) and a Loonie auction. Raffle tickets can be purchased at Westside Pro Hardware, the Neehoot Grocery at Newport Beach and Little Kingdom Gas Service. Deadline for entries is Thursday, July 22.

The Expos used a well-balanced attack, highlighted by a tworun dinger by Dylan Emmons, who ended the game with four RBI. Other Vernon pitchers were Kaden Black, Arron Fairbairn and Quinn Kashiwara. Vernon turned in another solid exhibition effort Saturday morning, grounding West Kelowna 8-6. Kyle Ciurka tossed three good innings, giving up two runs on two hits. In a tight defensive game, Vernon took a 2-1 first-inning lead and never gave it up. Michael Lenoury led the offence, scoring three times on three at-bats. Vernon’s other hurlers were Jacob Holland, giving up three runs over two innings work, and Droder, who earned the save. In their afternoon affair, the Expos first zone playdown game saw Vernon overpower Chase 15-10. Vernon jumped out with six runs in the first inning, but Chase answered with four runs in the bottom half of the inning. Lenoury scored three times, while Emmons and Ty Wellman both went 3-for-3. Vernon used Ciurka,

Wellman and Emmons on the mound to keep hard-hitting Chase off balance. Lenoury retired the last two batters to earn the save. Sunday morning saw the Pee Wees crew fall 13-4 to Summerland in five innings of play. Summerland jumped out to a 7-1 lead, and the Expos couldn’t muster enough hits to make a game of

it. Vernon left the bases loaded in the third inning. Ciurka got the start and Lenoury and Emmons both pitched two innings in relief.

Patti Hansen batted 5-for-5 as the Kal Hotel Naked Grapes stopped the White House Mortgage Gators 14-5 to win the Vernon Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Slo-Pitch Playoff Tournament Saturday at DND Fields. Playing in 35-degree heat, the Grapes were solid from the start, building a 10-0 lead after three innings. The Kal crew got other great bats from Jody McCall (4-for-5), Shelly Ouellette (4-for5), Jacquie Hansen (3-for-4) and Shannon Guenther (3-for-4). The Gators put four runs on the board in the fourth inning, but the Grapes added one more in the fifth and three more in the sixth to put the game out of reach. Playing their fifth game of the day, the Gators got three hits apiece from Pam Condie and Tanya Saddleman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A strong showing for the Kal Hotel Naked Grapes on a day where everybody in the line-up contributed with their bats, and the defence was so solid that in three games, only six runs were scored against them,â&#x20AC;? said the Grapesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Krista Kelly. The Grapes started the day with a 14-0 win over the Sundance Pool & Spa Blazers. McCall was 3-for4 with a triple, and Lisa Payne and Linda Castonguay were both 3-for-3. The Grapes then outlasted regular-season champion Daveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mobile Mechanic Devils 4-1 in an all-out defensive semifinal battle. Hansen and Pam Betton went 3-for-4 for Kal. The Gators, coached by Michelle Embleton, opened the tourney with a 5-4 loss to Lumbyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ted Luszcz Bulldozers Dozers in a

The White House squad rebounded with a 19-6 in over the Blazers.

Rebecca Warnes was 3-for-4 for the Dozers. The Gators advanced to the final by upending the Devils 18-14. Doyle kept her hot bat going, highlighting a nine-run first inning with a grand slam. Supporting her at the plate were Hunter (4-for-4), Disher (3-for-4) and Kelli Graham (3-for-4). The Devils responded with heavy bats from Rickie Leveille (4-for-4), Iva Wiens (3-for-4), Sheri McDougall (3-for-4) and Kim Zimmerman (3-for-4).

Pair of officers perform heroic rescue during fire KATHY MICHAELS Black Press

point is that fire should be pushing towards the lake rather than the

 

highway. Fire crews, water tankers and helicop-

ters are still working to douse hot spots, and the evacuation order, as

well as states of emergency for Peachland and West Kelowna remain in

effect, but will likely be re-evaluated later in the day on Thursday.

Through a veil of smoke and waves of flames all around them, two local Mounties ensured an elderly woman was able to escape from the Seclusion Bay fire, Monday. Const. Ryan Routley and Auxiliary Const. Greg Barnard were patrolling the region when they saw a plume of smoke rising from the Seclusion Bay area. With one call to home base, they confirmed there was a forest fire in its early stages, so they headed down to the neighbourhood at risk to assist with an evacuation, said Const. Routley. “At the first house we went to we knocked on the door... and we saw an elderly female asleep on the couch,” he said. “We kept knocking on the door and she wouldn’t wake up.” No matter how much noise they made they couldn’t rouse her, so they pushed into the house, nudged her awake and explained she had to evacuate. While the 85-yearold woman readied herself to leave, Barnard stayed behind and Routley drove away to evacuate the next house, but it wasn’t long until he had to double back because the smoke was coming on too fast to stay put. One attempt to drive away in the truck was thwarted, so the duo part carried, part escorted the woman over the awkward terrain and started toward the dock. And they made it just in the nick of time. “When we left the residence the trees were candling and the fire was within 15 yards of the house,” said Routley, adding that much of the plant life in the area was dry, dead and very risky. The 30-hectare blaze is considered contained. Crews have been bolstered around the fire,

to surround and continue its containment. The expectation at this

Singer Koolant spreads the message of One Love just like his predecessor KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

It may be miles that separate me from the man on the other side of the line, but his message is clear, especially when he starts to sing. The newest voice of The Wailers, the iconic band that once backed Bob Marley, is on the phone, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been pre-warned by his publicist that I might not understand his thick Jamaican accent. I assure her Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m cool with talking to Koolant (thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s his name) without an â&#x20AC;&#x153;interpreter,â&#x20AC;? having grown up in Toronto. (I once worked with a number of Jamaican-born Canadians, and also attended my fair share of Caribana parades as part of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s famed Caribbean carnival. Mind you that was more than 20 years ago.) Nevertheless, I find myself writing down a few question marks in my note pad as he talks about his background, meeting with The Wailers, and so forth, wondering, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What exactly did he say?â&#x20AC;? Then I ask him what all this has meant to him: Koolant sums it up by singing Bob Marley and The Wailersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; hit from the 1978 hit album Kaya. Is this Love. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no longer distance, but an understanding. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the message Marley spread throughout the world before his death in 1981. It may sound soppy in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s world of texting and Facebooking, but love and music is universal. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bring us together with a roof right over our heads. That message will ring true when Koolant and The Wailers play their only Canadian date at the Komasket Music Festival July 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel great about myself knowing that this music Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been doing, and knowing itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of what Bob Marley left off, is still important today,â&#x20AC;? said Koolant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great duty. Bob was a prophet, a legend... I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel intimidated when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m on the stage. The music hits me.â&#x20AC;? Koolant was a solo artist performing his own material in Jamaica when he received a call from The Wailers back in February this year.

WILLIAM RICHARDS PHOTO

The Wailers, with singer Koolant (front), play their only Canadian date at the Komasket Music Festival in Vernon July 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This meeting with the band members, it was new. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know them before. I had heard of Chizzy (Wailersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; guitarist, Audley Chisholm) who used to play with Maxi Priest,â&#x20AC;? said Koolant. And he had also heard about one of the originators of The Wailersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; sound, Aston â&#x20AC;&#x153;Familymanâ&#x20AC;? Barrett, now the bandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leader and musical director. The right-hand man for former band leader Marley, Familyman helped forge the template for reggae with his booming, thunderous bass and also played a large part in arranging Marleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs and co-produced a number of the late iconâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s albums. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Familyman is legend,â&#x20AC;? said Koolant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyday I learn new stuff from him, knowing that he was part of this legend band.... He is the bass.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Being with them, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like family.â&#x20AC;? Koolant says he is thrilled he can spread the message Familyman, Marley and The Wailers began more than 40 years ago.

As a boy growing up in the St. Thomas region on the south east part of Jamaica, Koolant listened to reggae, with its roots steeped in the Rastafari movement, and especially its guru, Marley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rasta always preach to love and respect one another. The righteousness and teaching has gone around the world, to love another,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love reggae music, and music overall. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the beat of the people. When people listen to one kind of music itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s usually when they are troubled or depressed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve listened to Marleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music since I was a little boy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just the message I look for in the music. We should all go to school to work in songs. Children learn more that way... Overall, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a subject we can all learn from. I learn from good music.â&#x20AC;? Besides tours to the U.K., and now the U.S. and soon Europe, Koolant and The Wailers have also entered the studio to record the song, A Step for Mankind, for the compilation, Solutions for Dreamers: Season

3. The album was recorded in Jamaica, and is set for release this summer. All proceeds from album sales will benefit the United Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; world food program. The Wailers are also recording new songs for their own album expected for release in the near future. In the meantime, Koolant is looking forward to seeing our little part of the world when the band plays the Komasket Music Festival on the Syilx Nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sacred land. And he has a message for everyone: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love it when the people feel good about what we are doing. When I see the people jumping, it makes me feel good. To all the people: man, woman and child, stay true to yourselves.â&#x20AC;? Just like Marley did. The Wailers take the Komasket stage Saturday, July 31 at 9:30 p.m. Festival passes are available at the Ticket Seller. Call 549-7469 or visit www.ticketseller.ca.

This creates the effect of listening to two different recordings, although the excess of the first half derails the stronger material that follows it.

News Civic terms extended

CASTLEGAR Zibin Innovations 1402 Columbia Avenue 250-365-2355

TOM FLETCHER

CRANBROOK

Black Press

The B.C. Liberal cabinet approved an overhaul of local election laws that will see terms of office extended to four years and new spending limits imposed on candidates in time for civic elections in 2011. Community and Rural Development Minister Ben Stewart said Wednesday he expects new legislation to be drafted in time for debate in the spring 2011 session of the legislature. The spending limits are to be worked out after discussions at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention this fall. The biggest difficulty is setting spending limits that work for big communities, where developers and municipal unions finance campaigns, and small towns where there are few donations and sometimes few candidates for local councils and school boards. Municipal leaders and B.C. Liberal MLAs sat on a task force that made the recommendations. They rejected the call for limits to be placed on the amount of contributions. NDP critic Scott Fraser, a former mayor of Tofino, said the task force heard calls for a cap on contributions from the public. The NDP has been calling on the B.C. Liberals for years to ban union and corporate donations to provincial parties, but the governing party is in no hurry to end a system where corporate money puts them millions ahead of the NDP each year. The B.C. Liberals wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t impose limits on municipalities that they are unwilling to face themselves, Fraser said.

Of those, 19 fatalities – or 68 per cent – were the result of drowning during activities such as swimming, power boating, diving and white-water rafting, among others. Most deaths occurred in the Island region (23 deaths or 35 per cent) and the Interior region (22 deaths or 33 per cent). The statistics do not include deaths resulting from motor vehicle or aircraft crashes into water, or other non-water-related issues while on watercraft. The Canadian Red Cross offers the following safety tips to prevent water-related injuries

With temperatures soaring across the province, the B.C. Coroner’s Service is cautioning British Columbians who are heading to lakes and rivers to be careful when participating in water-related recreation. While data for this year is still unavailable, last year in B.C., 66 people died as a result of activities in and around water, with males accounting for 86 per cent of those deaths. The most common cause of water-related deaths in 2009 was drowning, at 69 per cent. A large proportion of the deaths, a total of

■ Ensure children are supervised, whether at home or on vacation. Adult supervision is the best protection for children – even for those who can swim. ■ Ensure that your backyard pool is fully fenced with a self-closing, self-latching gate. ■ When not using your home pool, clear all toys out of the water and away from the edge. These can often tempt children to the water’s edge. ■ Ensure you have emergency equipment including a first aid kit and a phone in the immediate pool area.

and deaths: ■ When boating, ensure everyone in the boat has their properly fitted life jacket on and fastened. ■ Do not consume alcohol before or during swimming or boating activities. ■ Be cautious about swimming in currents, and know what to do if you get into trouble. ■ Get trained through swimming and water safety lessons. Get your Pleasure Craft Operator Card if you operate a boat. Know how to respond in an emergency by taking first-aid lessons.

The best of both worlds could be yours in the year ahead, in that some persons at work could turn out to be wonderful companions with whom to do things socially. It should be a pleasant period for you.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Be content with the hand that is dealt you and you should do reasonably well for yourself. If your expectations are too high, you will be courting disappointment.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you’re unduly concerned about trying to impress others in order to feed your ego, it could cause you to end up boasting, exaggerating or behaving in some kind of unbecoming manner.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) All agreements should be clearly thought out, regardless of their importance, but even more so now. There are strong signs that any little bug that isn’t thrown out will come home to bite.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) By following a policy of always being forthright in your dealings with others, even if it is painful, you won’t have to worry about what you said to whom and why. Tell it like it is.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It shouldn’t need to be said, that if you fail to follow through on a project the way you envisioned it to be, it won’t live up to your expectations. See things to completion, or the end result won’t be what you want.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Take extra care to exercise your best judgment when it comes to handling your funds, so that you can hang onto some of what you’ve recently acquired. Material conditions could be tricky at this juncture. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Someone might make you an important promise that you’ll want to take to heart. However, be careful because it is likely to be done simply to placate you for the time being. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Do be protective of your interests, but also share fairly what has been acquired through a joint endeavor. Behaving selfishly could generate some problems difficult to resolve. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Wasting time by allowing yourself to be sidetracked from your responsibilities in order to engage in a frivolous interest will double your workload later, with less time to do it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It doesn’t take much brainpower to know that if you’re not as strong a finisher as needed, success is likely to be denied you. Be determined and consistent in all you do. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Those who work at your side might have more faith in your abilities than you do yourself. If you allow negative thinking to establish your pace, your chances of success are small.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Even if you don’t mean it, playing down to others or treating friends indifferently won’t win you any fans. Be extra mindful of your social decorum when you’re out and about.

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

Bridge by Phillip Alder It can be instructive to watch inexperienced players. And, yes, it can also be frustrating. This is another deal from the social game of Chicago that I kibitzed earlier this year. After North opened one diamond, East might have made a light takeout double. Then, after South passed, West also should have passed. He had no reason to expect his side to make game, the diamonds were splitting badly, and maybe North-South had a much better fit in a major that they would locate if given a second chance. When West overcalled two clubs, North made a takeout double. East raised cautiously to three clubs, for which he could have had a much weaker hand.

(A two-diamond cuebid is best.) Now South, incorrectly thinking that the vulnerability was favorable, bravely entered the fray with three spades. West should have passed, but competed again. Then North bid four spades, hoping East would sacrifice in five clubs. Against four spades, West led the heart five, a strange choice. Declarer won on the board and called for the spade jack. This tempted East to cover with the queen, which cost a trump trick. West shifted to the club king and East erred again, letting his partner take the trick. East should have overtaken, cashed the spade ace, and played a third spade. South ruffed West’s

club continuation in the dummy, played a heart to his jack, ruffed the club jack, and led dummy’s last trump. East won and shifted to a diamond, but South won with dummy’s ace and cashed the two hearts, discarding his diamond loser. He lost only two spades and one club.

#OMMUNITYGIVES!MBERBACKHERSMILE Community Dental Access Program is close to opening its clinic in Vernon CARA BRADY Morning Star

Amber Petersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; smile shows her gratitude. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the end of a lifetime of dental problems and, thanks to the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s donations for dentures, at the start of a new life. The 25-year-old mother of two and her husband had both been working at several part-time jobs but could not afford dental care. When pain and dental infection were at the point of threatening her life, she went to the hospital and through the Community Dental Access Program referrals had all her teeth pulled. She received her dentures only a few days ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I had forgotten how to smile. Now I smile all the time. My gums are almost healed and I feel great and I have so much more energy. My husband and my mother tell me how beautiful I look with the teeth. Now I look forward to getting up in the morning and to eating with the family, not just cooking for them,â&#x20AC;? she said, her eyes sparkling and her complexion clearer and brighter as she recovers from the infection. She had not been eating well as she could not chew and sweets and even salt bothered her teeth. She was happy to be able to eat pork chops and have a piece of her sonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first birthday cake. Laine Lowe, community dental hygienist, and a founding member of the board of directors of the Community Dental Access Centre, was delighted with the response from the community wanting to help Peters and the centre, which will provide a full range of dental services for low-income people, with payment based on income. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone was touched by Amberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story and many people did not realize that there was such a need for this service. Everyone I talked to since we reached the goal for Amber said they wanted to make a donation to the clinic. We have also received a lot of calls from people who need dental care so we want to get the clinic open as soon as possible,â&#x20AC;? she said. The board of directors, which has been working towards starting a clinic for four years, has found a location for the clinic and has already fundraised $250,000 for

The host agency for the Dental Access Clinic is the First Nations Friendship Centre, and the clinic will be open to everyone in the community, not only First Nations. Donations to the clinic can be made by cheque made out to the First Nations Friendship Centre with a note that the donation is for the Dental Access Clinic. Tax receipts will be issued.

Young dad feels trapped

D

ear Annie: My girlfriend got pregnant during our senior year, so I married her to do the right thing. At first, it was great living together, even with the baby. But now, five years later, we have two kids and she’s pregnant again. I know it takes both of us to make a baby, but she is the one responsible for birth control, and I didn’t want any more kids. The only fun I have is playing league baseball, and once in a while, I get out with the guys. Annie, I’m only 23 and want more out of life. We both work, but after paying the bills, we don’t have a dime left. Sex is rare. I work around hot women all the time. My wife is going to take two months off of work before the baby is born, and life at home will be miserable. With another child, she will be grumpier than ever. I feel trapped. My friends, single and married, have a lot more fun than I do. Sometimes after a few drinks, I feel a rage inside and have to walk

have no problem sitting through a prayer at family gatherings. I deal with it by silently thanking The Goddess when God is mentioned and My Lady when our Lord is thanked. Part of the philosophy of Wicca is “and harm none,” and she is harming herself by stressing over this. We can’t change how others view the world. We can only change how we respond. I would encourage her to live her life by example and learn to be tolerant of others. Oregon: I’m also the only Witch in a Christian family. In order to receive respect from other family members, I not only show respect for their rituals in their own homes, but welcome their mealtime prayers at mine. I don’t recite them, but remain, as you say, respectfully silent while I inwardly thank my own deities. If I were to be verbally attacked or had some truly objectionable ritual thrust on me, I would stand my ground. But I don’t consider mealtime

Provincial deficit is a good news, bad news story TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government’s operating deficit for 2009-10 came in almost $1 billion lower than expected in its post-election forecast, thanks

mostly to spending cuts in areas other than health care and education. Finance Minister Colin Hansen said the deficit ended up $996 million smaller than expected, and he is sticking to his plan that the province will be back in

surplus again by 2013-14. That would mean the government tables its first balanced budget in four years, just before the scheduled election in the spring of 2013. The government’s February budget projects

another deficit of $1.7 billion for the current year however. Hansen said “a lot of belt-tightening” allowed the government to cut spending by $833 million from September 2009 estimates.
