Premier up for political challenges ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
From the high of hosting the world at the Vancouver Olympics to the low of dropping drastically in political polls. It’s been a challenging year for B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell, who took Thursday morning to visit the Sparkling Hill Resort at Predator Ridge in Vernon following a week-long cabinet strategy planning session in Kelowna, and met with community leaders to discuss local issues. “Our province is being seen by people as a launching pad for prosperity that will lead the country forward,” said Campbell, who called Sparkling Hill “a spectacular place that can’t be beat, and a huge attraction for Vernon and the North Okanagan,” in a 10-minute scrum with local media Thursday. “We are now one of Canada’s leading provinces and globally we are looked to as a place people want to invest. That’s good news for the Okanagan Valley.” The province garnered worldwide attention in February with the Olympics and Paralympics. However, the introduction of a controversial Harmonized Sales Tax (HST), which came into effect July 1, has seen Campbell’s and the Liberals’ popularity in B.C. plummet. An Angus Reid online public opinion poll released this week showed a 23-point drop in people who would vote for the B.C. Liberals in July. That’s down from 46 per cent of people who voted for the party in the May 2009 election. Support for the Liberals slipped to 35 per cent in March, 29 per cent in April and 26 per cent in June, all coming after the HST was announced. Campbell believes all the dire things people are predicting will happen because of the tax won’t happen, but admits his party did not do a good job of explaining to people that the only reason the HST was put in place in July was because Ontario spent months negotiating with the federal government
on what the transition to the HST would look like. “We had to do it by July or not do it for two years, and that would have put us behind the eight-ball in terms of the economy,” said the premier. “We now have one of the most competitive regimes in the world, and that’s according to others, not just ourselves. The HST will encourage forestry, investment in industry, in mining, in tourism, in agriculture, and small business will benefit. “We have a responsibility to go out and both explain and establish the trust with the people of British Columbia. We’re going to do the best we can to do what’s right for the province in the long-term.” The unpopular tax has led to a successful anti-HST petition campaign, launched by former B.C. Premier Bill Vander Zalm, and recall campaigns are being hinted at for MLAs who supported the HST, including Vernon-Monashee’s Eric Foster. “They (recall) may or may not be launched,” said Campbell. “People have tried to recall me on a number of occasions in the past. When you enter that kind of discussion, people have to decide do they want people to represent them who will tell the truth and do what they think is best in the long-term, or do they want to follow a path of expediency? “There isn’t a problem we’re facing, whether it’s environmental, economic or educational challenges, that don’t require us to make long-term decisions. “People want us to think in the long-term and that’s what we’re trying to do. Sometimes, it’s politically unpopular and I think the public responds to that.” Campbell said his morning meetings with local community leaders touched on such topics as the possibility of a correctional facility in Lumby and the shut down of the short-line railway between Armstrong and Sicamous that has impacted the local economy.

News Robbers hit gas bar
ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Vernon RCMP are searching for two suspects following an armed robbery at a local gas bar Thursday. Two men entered the Safeway gas bar on 32nd Street at around 10:30 p.m., produced weapons, including a can of bear spray, and demanded money from the two clerks. â€œThe two suspects made off with an undisclosed amount of money, some cigarettes and some food items,â€? said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. As the pair left the premises, one of the suspects shot the bear spray into the front of the store. The police service dog was able to track the suspects for a few blocks then it ran out. There is some indication that they got into a waiting vehi- Gord Molendyk cle, possibly a newer-model maroon Plymouth Voyager. Neither of the employees were physically injured in the incident. One of the suspects was wearing a black T-shirt, black pants and a bandana that covered part of his face. The other was a Caucasian male wearing a dark jeans, a blue hooded sweatshirt and a black hat. Anybody with any information on the suspects or the robbery is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS (8477). CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Assaults have police seeking suspects Two separate Friday morning attacks have Vernon RCMP searching for a pair of assailants. Police were called at around 8 a.m. to the 3700 block of 30th Avenue after a report of two men assaulting another man. Ambulance personnel were
to get to the bottom of both assaults. â€œThe possibility exists that both matters were drug related,â€? said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. In both cases the suspectsâ€™ descriptions were similar. One is a Caucasian man, about six-foot tall wearing a yellow shirt and tan or light brown shorts.
The second suspect is a large native man with a black T-shirt with white writing on the front and light plaid shorts. Police are continuing to follow up on these assaults, and are asking anyone with any information to contact them at the Vernon detachment at 250-545-7171, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Prison decision up to village ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A decision on a correctional facility for Lumby lies with the people of the village. And Premier Gordon Campbell said a prison is something the province would not impose on Lumby. The premier met with community leaders, including Lumby Mayor Kevin Acton, during a brief visit to Vernon Thursday morning following a week-long cabinet strategy planning session in Kelowna. “I think the decision is entirely up to the people of Lumby,” said Campbell. “I think it’s smart that Lumby council is going out and talking to people, laying out the information and they’ll make the decision if they want it or not. It’s not something we’d impose. If people want to work with us and they think it’s a good addition to their community, it’s certainly something we’ll work with them on.” Acton and Lumby council held a public meeting to gather input on the possibility of a correctional facility being located in the village. The meeting drew close to 400 people. Campbell said there is a need for a new correctional facility in the province and that Lumby could be a possible site. “It’s important to go out and talk with the people after what a correctional facility is and what it isn’t, what it looks like and what it doesn’t,” said the premier. “Talk about how it will have a positive impact on the community so people can make their own decision. I’m confident the people of Lumby will make a decision that’s best for Lumby. It would be wrong for me to suggest what’s best for Lumby.” Acton said council continues to gather information on a possible facility, and called the meeting with the premier encouraging. “Before any councillors or myself sign on a dotted line, we’d want some guarantees from the province,” said Acton. “Until we have some of that stuff somewhat hammered

I have to remember the hundreds and hundreds of conversations I’ve had, the floods of e-mails and phone calls, and try to wade through all of that and try to get a good sense of what Lumby thinks about this,” said Acton. Acton said a referendum on a correctional centre could be a possibility.

News Board gives offender day parole ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
A convicted North Okanagan sex offender has been granted day parole. Joseph Douglas Baker, 46, a former Big Brothers volunteer, was sentenced to three years in jail in Vernon Provincial Court in December 2008 for sex crimes against young boys. Baker, who pleaded guilty to charges of sexual assault, invitation to sexual touching, sexual exploitation and two counts of touching for sexual purposes involving a child from incidents in the North Okanagan and Langley between 1988 and 1994, was granted day parole following a hearing Tuesday in Abbotsford. â€œBoard members study all the available information and try to form an opinion on if heâ€™s a risk to reoffend,â€? explained Patrick Storey, spokesman for the National Parole Board. â€œAfter reading his file, and talking to him at the hearing, the board felt that under the terms of condition of day parole, which has a lot of structure, a lot of close supervision, his risk could be managed effectively in the community.â€? Baker has been granted day parole until his statutory release, which is slated for December 2011. Being on day parole entitles him to live in a halfway house with a nightly curfew, and heâ€™ll be able to go out into the community to work, volunteer or attend counselling programs. Baker completed a high intensity sex offender program while incarcerated, and is reported to have done well in the program. Baker has asked to go to a specific halfway house but itâ€™s believed the facility is not in the Okanagan, said Storey. Conditions for his day parole include that Baker

â€œHis risk could be managed in the community.â€? â€” Patrick Storey must attend individual or community-based sex offender programs. He has to report all relationships including friendships with women and with adults who have children under 16 to his parole supervisor. Baker canâ€™t own, possess or use a computer without prior written approval and must avoid all child pornography websites. He canâ€™t go to places where children under the age of 16 are likely to be, including but not limited to schools, parks, public playgrounds, video arcades and child care facilities and he is not to have contact with any person under 16 unless supervised by a responsible adult with pre-approval from his supervisor. A victim requested that Baker is not to visit the Okanagan community in which the victim resides, and Baker is to have no direct or indirect contact with his victims or their families. Tuesdayâ€™s ruling did not sit well with one of Bakerâ€™s victims, who can only be referred to as A because of a publication ban. â€œI was choked, I didnâ€™t think heâ€™d get it,â€? said A, of the day parole ruling. â€œIâ€™m frustrated.â€? Asked if he thought Baker was a risk to reoffend, A said â€œguaranteed.â€? â€œI donâ€™t think heâ€™ll change,â€? said A. Upon being sentenced in 2008, Baker addressed the complainants and apologized for his actions, and said he would co-operate with the prison people and anybody else to rehabilitate himself.

Councillor questions notice bylaw ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
One Vernon councillor has panned a city housekeeping measure in regards to the Okanagan Film Commission. Mary-Jo Oâ€™Keefe questioned the need of a city bylaw that states participants can withdraw from the Okanagan Film Commission by giving at least 16 months notice in writing to the North Okanagan Regional District board prior to Sept. 1 of a given year, thereby taking effect Dec. 31 the following year. On July 27, 2009, council advised NORD that it would be withdrawing from the function for the Okanagan Film Commission by Dec. 31, 2010. â€œI understand why weâ€™re doing this, as it gives
us some flexibility,â€? but I think it sends the wrong message,â€? said Oâ€™Keefe. â€œWhy would we withdraw? Weâ€™re starting to get some recognition in the industry, we have the ability to have films made here. â€œChief administrative officer Leon Gous explained the bylaw is just a housekeeping measure, and that the city has no plans to withdraw from the function. The city contributes $15,151 yearly to the film commission. â€œWe have been the main supporters of the Okanagan Film Commission, and I donâ€™t see that changing because they do a great a job,â€? said acting Mayor Patrick Nicol. Council â€“ including Oâ€™Keefe â€“ passed a motion to give notice to withdraw on Dec. 31, 2011.

Doubts linger on new police unit ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
One Nor th Okanagan rural community is showing little enthusiasm for the local RCMP’s newly created North Okanagan Rural Unit. Rene Talbot, Columbia Shuswap Regional District director for area D, FalklandSilver Creek-RancheroDeep Creek, said the unit, created by the RCMP July 5 to provide better policing services to rural communities, is a reactive solution, not proactive. “It’s not the person that’s doing the job in the car out on the street, it’s management,” said Talbot. “They’re telling us this new unit is going to be so much better for us. People out here are not happy. You don’t see any police presence. “I’ve had three meetings with the inspector, superintendent and sergeant but they’ve never answered any of my questions or concerns.
“You don’t see any police presence.” — Rene Talbot They listen to them but don’t answer them.” What troubles Talbot, among several issues, is response time. He states an accident on Highway 97 about a month ago in a construction zone saw a police officer arrive the better part of two hours after the accident was reported. And nearly two weeks ago, said Talbot, there was no police presence during a vandalism spree that saw vehicles, homes, the school and fire hall painted, items stolen from cars and a window broken at the school. “Members here spend most of their time going to Enderby and Armstrong,” said Talbot. “We’re paying for policing but most of
the policing is done in Enderby and Armstrong. One Enderby councillor recently complained about policing. Maybe they should send some money back to us seeing as how we’re paying for their policing.” Under the old system, three members were assigned to the Falkland detachment, though one is currently on maternity leave. A call for service may have depended on an RCMP member coming from Vernon or Kamloops. The new system, says Vernon North Okanagan detachment Supt. Reg Burgess who announced the creation of the rural unit, will see a member who is working available to take a call in Falkland.
“I can’t guarantee the calls will be answered any better, but it makes sense that a member already in a car working in the North Okanagan, if not in the detachment or in the vicinity, is still going to respond quicker than calling out another member to deal with it,” said Burgess. The rural unit includes 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. Burgess said he’s met with Talbot to discuss the area’s concerns, which also include highway speeding, drinking and driving and the roar

Position extended Vernon council has agreed to extend the existing agreements for the City of Vernon RCMP Safe Communities Unit’s rural program co-ordinators position for a five-month period. Warren Smith’s position, which is shared with the District of Coldstream, Village of Lumby, Township of Spallumcheen and Cities of Armstrong and Enderby, is extended until Dec. 31, 2010. City council also voted to refer the matter of the community policing rural program to the North Okanagan Mayor’s and Administrator’s meeting to discuss the possibility of an intermunicipal agreement between the parties.
The City of Vernon will be well represented at fall’s Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) annual convention.

Winter Games reveals board, sports Morning Star Staff
The BC Games Society is pleased to announce plans for the 2012 BC Winter Games in Greater Vernon are now getting underway. Two milestones have been met with the establishment of a host community board of directors, and the announcement of the participating sports for the event, taking place February 23 to 26. “Two significant volunteer groups are required to pool their collective resources in order for an event of this size to take place,” said BC Games Society President and CEO Kelly Mann. Locally, this 16-person board led by local businessmen Akbal Mund (president) and Jim McEwan (vice-president), will prepare to host B.C.’s best young athletes in 15 sports. “Jim and I are leading a team of very talented and motivated people,” said Mund.
“We will show what the people of Vernon can do.” — Akbal Mund “The experience and passion of our volunteer board will translate very well into a quality experience for the athletes in February 2012. We will show them what the people of Greater Vernon can do when it comes to hosting.” The second group of volunteers comes from provincial sport organizations. These organizations provide developmental opportunities for athletes, coaches, and officials, ensuring their plans are in keeping with the nationally recognized Canadian Sport for Life criteria, whereby age appropriate development techniques, skills and coaching are communicated to
the athletes. “Thousands of volunteer hours are given by sport agency volunteers across B.C. every year in support of our young athletes,” said Mann. “As we have seen in our recently held Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic Games, the opportunities for athletes from the BC Games to excel on the international stage are many.” Olympic and Paralympic athletes Maelle Ricker, Brent Seabrook, Denny Morrison, Josh Dueck and many others had their first multi-sport games experience with the BC Games.
The roster of sports for February 2012 includes archery, badminton, biathlon, curling, figure skating, gymnastics, hockey, judo, karate, netball, ringette, skiing-alpine (includes athletes with a disability), skiing-cross country (includes athletes with a disability), skiing-freestyle, and speed skating. The last time Greater Vernon hosted the BC Winter Games was in 1992. The rest of the board of directors are: Larry Grist (accomodations), Donna Mihalcheon (administration), Sandra Simao (ceremonies), Steve Jenkins (communications), Steve Coombes (food services), Sandi LaFleche (friends of the games), Terri Jones (promotions), Glenn Benischek (protocol), Garry Van Soest (registration), Gord Molendyk (security), Christine Kashuba (special events), Jack Yamaoka (sport), and Frank Rennick (transportation).

Coldstream Mayor Jim Garlick says the amount of feedback in itself is a hurdle, but acknowledges it all must be considered in a thorough fashion. “The growth in the area is going to be a main concern and we feel it needs to be addressed directly and not in rushed manner,” he said, adding the public should strive to keep up with what decisions are made as they will impact residents’ lives. “I think it’s pretty important for the public to be aware of this; it will have an effect on them.” Regional growth strategy details are available online at www.rdno.ca/rgs.

aul, the Genius German Octopus correctly picked the last eight winners of the recent World Cup soccer finals. I am hoping that my stockbrokers will offer the cephalopod a job. Paul certainly couldn’t do worse than their “experts,” and they wouldn’t have to pay him nearly so much. The only difference between Bernie Madoff and my broker is that Bernie Madoff was a crook. My guy loses the same amount of money; he just doesn’t steal it. I was planning on using that money for food and medicine during my declining years, which have already started, according to my friends. I know that they are my Jim Mullen friends because total strangers wouldn’t say such hurtful things. Paul the Octopus picked the winners by pulling food out of containers marked with the flags of one team or another. I have not figured out how my money managers pick the losers, but they have been on an uncanny streak for almost three years now. Maybe they hide random company logos in expensive Wall Street restaurants, and whichever one the stockbroker eats on his expensed lunch that day becomes his pick. It replaces the system they used before, which was racing cockroaches. For this they take a 2-percent management fee. It’s not just stocks; experts who predict all manner of things fill up huge hunks of TV time. Like my stockbroker, they are usually wrong. Paul the Octopus could replace them and the thousands of people who make a career out of picking things before they happen. Who will win the best actress Oscar? Who will the candidate pick for vice president? Who will win the World Series? Who will win the Super Bowl? Who will the Bachelorette pick? Who will win the Kentucky
Derby? Someone even prognosticated how many correct predictions Paul the Octopus would make. Can he do it one more time? Sure, we could just wait until these events happen and then we would know the results, but that seems to be out of fashion. For months people will debate who will win the Oscars. The day after we know for sure who won, the discussion is over. We hear the predictions ten times more than we hear the facts. It’s no wonder that some people probably still believe Barack Obama picked Hillary Clinton or Osama bin Laden to be his vice president, as it was often predicted that he would. It’s kind of odd that when a human predictor makes a mistake, he or she gets to keep predicting. Yet if Paul the Octopus missed his first two predictions, he’d be back in the tank where he came from, hiding in an ink cloud of shame. If an expert is always wrong, is he still an expert? Shouldn’t there be some minimum standard for predicting -- like getting something right every once in a while? Even a flipped coin can get things right five out of ten times, so if you’re an expert and you can’t get one out of ten things right, you lose your License to Predict and should stop making TV appearances. You should stop managing stock portfolios and stop talking about politics. If you have no track record, get off the track. When a politician does something unsavory, when an actor is taped making a racist phone rant, when an athlete is caught cheating, they pay a price. Don’t believe the old saying, because there is such a thing as bad publicity. Don’t take my word for it? Then talk to Tiger Woods’ accountant. But experts never pay a price for being wrong. Because who knows more about being wrong than the experts? They’re experts at it.

Gordon Campbell knew it was coming. B.C.’s premier, on a quick stop in Vernon to marvel at the new Sparking Hill Resort at Predator Ridge, and to meet with community leaders, granted local media a 10-minute scrum on any issues. After questions about what brought the premier to the North Okanagan, a possible correctional facility for Lumby and what was discussed with community leaders, Campbell was asked about those three little letters – HST, as in Harmonized Sales Tax – that has seen both his and the Liberals’ provincial popularity dwindle drastically since the unpopular tax came into effect July 1. With a shrug of the shoulder, Campbell admitted the party should have done a better job explaining why the HST was coming into effect so quickly, that waiting a couple of years would have put the province behind in terms of the economy. He still believes the HST will be a great thing for the province, and doesn’t think the dire predictions by opponents will happen. Since July 1, the Liberals have seen their support drop 23 points in people who would vote for them. That’s a decrease from 46 per cent of people who voted for them in the May 2009 election. Since the spring, Liberal support slipped by 35 per cent in March, 29 per cent in April and 26 per cent in June. Campbell knows the tax and the government are not sitting well with a lot of British Columbians, but he said he remembered what B.C. was like in the 1990s when there was a NDP government in power that didn’t drive an agenda that strengthened our economy, as he believes the HST will. The premier and his party are facing a tough climb selling the benefits of the HST to the masses. The drive is slow out of the gate.

Bring back the dragon boats
s a member of the Dragon Riders, a Vernon-based women's dragon boat team, I was extremely disappointed, (as were all my teammates), when I learned that this year's Dragon Boat festival at Kal Lake had been cancelled. This is an event that we all eagerly look forward to, and practise for months in advance, to participate in. Not only is it exciting to be a participant, it is also exciting to be the host community of this fun event. So I was greatly heartened when I read in The Morning Star that the GVAC is undertaking discussions with the festival organizing committee to resolve concerns in the hopes that the festival can return to Vernon in 2011 and am keeping my fingers crossed that these discussions will be successful. And kudos to Patrick Nicol (who has to be one of the most community-minded HIGH PAYROLL I for sure cannot speak for anyone else, however, I can speak how I feel about Richard Rolke's article, "City hall records higher payroll." No doubt people need compensation for jobs well performed. I served seven years as a Director on hospital/care board back in the late '80s and early 90s and most of those on this particular board were former government bureaucrats who when it came time to ante up more money for the CEO and top non union staff I would hear the same line pined as Councilor Jack Gilroy; "I look at it and go, Wow, but it's the cost of doing business. If we want the people in proper positions, we have to pay a certain level or you'll lose them." At that time the CEO of this particular facility was making $85,000 plus perks annually. I was the only person who voted annually against their pay raises. I maintained then and maintain today that most families if they live within their means can live nicely on an income of $7,000 a month. That goes for those earning $75,000 annually. If you can not support your family on $6,000 a month plus perks then you have a lifestyle problem. I for one do not buy into the philosophy more money gets you better
individuals this community has ever had) for his support of this great event, which draws hundreds of participants and spectators. Patrick is quite right when he says that the festival is a colourful addition to the tourism calendar, and I suspect it brings in a fair few tourism dollars to our community as most teams come from out of town
personnel. I'm sure there are hundreds of top, well-qualified professionals in the municipal "industry" that would gladly come to our city for less compensation. To hear Mayor Wayne Lippert chime in behind this comment that the city is not top heavy with staff and council is being responsible disappoints me as I know this man. Sometimes I think he has lost his business compass and is sipping the bureaucratic kool-aid and is following instead of leading. I appreciate Councillor Spiers efforts to keep us informed. As I said I do not speak for anyone else but that's my opinion. Joe O'Hearn PAY IT FORWARD I have a sad story to tell you about a recent Monday morning. I was driving to work this morning but first I drop my kids off at Fulton, I turn off the highway and go down Mission Hill. On my way I drive past the house of a sweet elderly gentleman that I have seen on many occasions watering his prized flowers. In the middle of the night on Sunday some punks came along and threw his plants all over the lawn and road, completely destroying his geraniums and green plastic pots. When
and purchase meals and accommodation while here. However, my blood fairly boiled when I read the comments from Gyula Kiss who is "not encouraging them to come back" because some residents have "issues with noise and traffic related to the event." I would suggest that if you can't handle the noise and traffic, you shouldn't be liv-
I saw this I started to cry. I drove my kids to school and was so upset, that I had to go back up there. I started to pick up the plants the best I could. Two of his neighbour ladies came out to help. They said he is probably in his 90s, so I assume he lives on a pension. I knocked on his door, but there was no answer as it was still very early. I left for work and promised to return later that afternoon. I arrived at work and was still quite sad. I put an e-mail out to some of my co-workers to see if anyone wanted to pitch in a dollar or two to restore the damage. I also called my daughter's best friend's mom, as she lives just down the street. She was able to put me in touch with another neighbour that keeps an eye out for him. She relayed what would need replacing, and on my lunch, I went to a nursery and purchased flowers, pots, and dirt. Hopefully this helps restore his faith in humanity, and show him that we are a community that cares. A big thank you to my co-workers who gave money to cover all the expenses and his neighbours for their kindness. Anyway, thanks for listening and my point is not to complain about the vandals, but to remind everyone, that we are all in this together so pay
ing so close to Kal Beach because in case you hadn't noticed, it is a major destination point for both locals and tourists during the summer months, and when you bought your property, you did not buy the rights to what activities can take place on the lake. The festival is one weekend out of the year and dragon boating is a fun and healthy activity that is open to people of all ages and abilities and as such should be encouraged. So to those residents that Mr. Kiss purports to speak on behalf of, I say get over yourselves folks, if you are really so bothered by these activities, go away for the weekend and leave the rest of us to enjoy the wealth of fun and rewarding activities we are able to partake of in our home town. Sandie Hoberg
it forward! Love thy neighbour! Janice Berehulke THANK YOU It's funny how the actions of a stranger can mean so much. Recently I was travelling from Grand Forks to Kamloops to meet up with my family for a family reunion. It was late. I was heading into Vernon and on my descent into the city I unfortunately ran over something that punctured my tire. Whatever it was, it was causing a noise and because of that and the quick deflation of the tire, I had to pull off the highway. I was travelling with three little boys (11, 7 and 7) They were pretty upset and wondering if we would ever make it. At 11 p.m. I pulled into the Town Pantry and got out to view the damage. It was bad and I was stuck with having to change the tire if I was going to continue on my way. I noticed a young man, Dylan Street, walking towards us. I thought he was just heading home but to my surprise he came out and went to work changing my tire, calming my boys and giving me many tire changing tips. Wow. I never expected someone to help me without being asked. I am so thankful for his help and I think that everyone in Vernon should be
so proud of him and all the young people that do selfless acts for strangers that travel your highway. Thank you again Dylan and I will always be grateful. Kim Bounds

News Citizens push against logging in Lumby area RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Residents in a rural area between Lumby and Cherryville are rallying together over the possible impact of logging. The Creighton Valley Residents and Resort Owners Association is asking for a five-year moratorium on logging in the Echo Lake/ Creighton Valley watershed so studies can be done on wildlife, esthetics, water quality and quantity and lake levels. “There is a concern that there is overlogging,” said Georges Boucher, owner of Echo
Lake Fishing Resort and an association member. The association claims the level of Echo Lake has dropped, while creeks have dried up and aquifers are disappearing. “We are finding there are water quality differences and also with water quantity,” said Boucher. “The lake is not as clear as it used to be.” In a letter to the Ministry of Forests, the association states that more logging could compromise the hydrological system of the valley. “Further logging may result in the devastation of the commercial
Breath tests reveal five times legal limit
resorts in the area,” says the group. “With a decline in water quality and quantity and the attendant loss of fish and wildlife populations, as well as the esthetic disasters from previous clear cutting in the valley, we feel that further cutting is irresponsible and potentially damaging to the local and provincial economy.” The group also claims that the entire ridge in the area could become
unstable. “Since new slides have been noted by residents in the cut areas, there is really worry about further erosion, sediment movement, landslide occurrence, loss of land and impacts to roads, bridges and other infrastructure,” it writes. The Ministry of Forests’ Vernon office is aware of the situation and a consultation session is planned. “With regards to the Creighton Valley resi-
dents, we’re aware of the file and the letter from the residents,” said Richard Toperczer, tenures officer for the ministry. “We’re taking the matter very seriously and we’re meeting with them within a week.” Toperczer added they will have a professional hydrologist at the meeting. “We make decisions based on science,” he said. “We’re very keenly interested in the scientific basis of the statements.”

An alert resident helped RCMP pull a suspected impaired driver off the road before 1 p.m. Thursday. The citizen told police the suspected impaired driver nearly caused an accident at the Monte Lake gas station on Highway 97 at around 12:30 p.m. The vehicle was described as a green Mazda with B.C. plates. A Falkland RCMP officer was on his way to Monte Lake when he noticed the vehicle drive past him on the highway, five kilometres south of Westwold. “Our officer turned his police vehicle around and activated emergency equipment,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “The vehicle was pulled over outside of Westwold. The driver said he was heading home and did not understand why he was pulled over. Our officer could smell an odour of liquor on the driver.” The suspect was given a breath test and blew five times the legal limit. He was arrested and is slated to appear in court Aug. 5. “Here is another example of the level of impairment that some individuals drive our roads, in the middle of the day, endangering all others using the highways,” said Molendyk. The vehicle was registered to a Salmon Arm resident.

A volunteer fire department fundraising calendar will feature some local talent this year. Both the Lavington and the BX Swan Lake fire departments will appear on the cover of The Fire Within’s 2011 volunteer firefighter calendar. “The calendar project is designed to bridge the gap between the needs of volunteer fire departments and the budgets provided by the municipalities they serve,” said Chad Sartison, chair of The Fire Within, a fundraising organization that supports volunteer fire departments across the country. “Funds raised during the project ensure firefighters have access to training and equipment that will help keep them and the public they serve safe.” Renowned photographer Charles Hope has been traveling across North America photographing the volunteer firefighters who will be featured in the upcoming calendars. This project is community based said Sartison, so every dollar raised will stay in the community that raised it. “Although the money raised by the project is essential to many fire departments, the purchase of a calendar is an important symbolic demonstration of support by the public to what we do as volunteers.” Last year, volunteer fire departments from Alberta, B.C., Ontario, Nova Scotia, and P.E.I. participated in the project and raised a total of more than $420,000 that stayed directly with the departments who raised it. Thanks to the generous help of industry sponsors, The Fire Within has also been able to award over $400,000 in equipment and training since inception, including organizing an annual trip for participating firefighters to the Fire Department Instructors Conference in Indianapolis, Indiana. The Fire Within also received a $50,000 grant this year from the Motorola Foundation in support of volunteer firefighters. “Many departments are coping with fewer volunteers and poorer funding resulting in departments quietly being forced to close their doors. Every time you leave the city limits you are in a volunteer firefighter’s hands and the health of the volunteer service as a whole should be of concern to all of us,” said Sartison.

Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake (SPrKL) past president Christine Cookson takes a secchi disk reading, for recording water clarity, on Kalamalka Lake.
PHASE I Priced from
Society still on Kal Lake campaign Morning Star Staff
The Society for the Protection of Kalamalka Lake (SPrKL) continues to promote education and awareness regarding their chosen body of water. Recently, SPrKL made a presentation (viewable at www.spkl.ca) to the North Okanagan Regional District (NORD) about possible contamination to Kalamalka Lake and Coldstream Creek by various sources and NORD agreed to the formation of an ad-hoc committee to address some of the listed concerns. The committee holds meetings open to the public on the last Tuesday of the month for the next five months from 3 to 4 p.m at the NORD office. In May, SPrKL members collected six bags of garbage and four bags of recycling during the Creekside Park Clean-Up as part of the North Okanagan Regional Districtâ€™s Adopt-A-Stream Program. Also, SPrKL summer students Sinead Murphy and Maureen Long,manned the SPrKL booth at the Vernon Sunshine Festival. The students created informative posters, answered questions, and provided Kal Lake beverage (water) to hot visitors. They have been key to the success of SPrKL. Upon hearing from the Okanagan Basin Water Board about an opportunity from EcoAction Community Funding Program, SPrKL was awarded $16,223.00 recently. This will go partly towards a planting workshop Sept. 18 at 10 a.m. at the Coldstream Municipal Hall. Anyone living along
any creeks in Coldstream is invited to attend. Riparian plants will be available to those residents living along Coldstream Creek between Kirkland Drive and McClounie Road. For more information contact Trina Koch (project manager) at 250-862-3026, extension 268. SPrKL was inspired by the vision of Christine Cookson who moved to Vernon from Switzerland and saw the need to protect Kalamalka Lake after seeing similar lakes in Switzerland fall victim to urbanization. Currently, there are seven SPrKL directors including Cookson, Maria Besso, Jennifer Sigalet, Louise Christie, Flo Ryan, Don King and Trina Koch. The groupâ€™s mission is to preserve and protect the quality and health of Kalamalka Lake watershed for all user groups in future generations. Student membership is $5/year, individual membership is $15/year and family memberships are $25/year. The membership includes over 200 paying members, 150 Facebook members and 100 Twitter members. Membership forms are available online at www. spkl.ca or at the Kalavida Surf Shop (near Kal Lake Store).

Safe and Secure Living… The Lodge:
How to clear out a classroom PETER KENDAL Special to The Morning Star
I blame it all on the architecture of the school, but really I must shoulder the blame. Of course after more than 50 years it doesn’t really matter where the fault lay. Indeed I now look back on it all with a certain perverse sense of pride and satisfaction! I was a pupil at the time at Johnston Grammar School, Durham, in the county of the same name in North-East England. It was my final year there in the Upper Sixth form and I was even a prefect, as befitted my position in the school. As a budding technically-inclined rather than an arts-inclined student one of the subjects that I took was applied chemistry. One day in our practical laboratory class I decided to try a little experiment of my own, and this is where the story really starts. In the course of my homework reading I had come across a substance called carbylamine, along with some basic information on how to produce it. I have no clear recollection why this was of any interest or potential use to me, nor of what process was used, but it had stuck in my mind. That day in the lab I decided, for some reason or another, to test the process. Even now I cannot recollect any warnings being given about the results of the process, but I found myself with the substances to hand that would allow for the test being done. So I did it! The initial reaction to me mixing a few drops of the reactive substances in a test tube seemed innocuous. So to see what really would happen I mixed more of the substances in the tube. At first nothing seemed to be happening and then it happened. There was a vile smell that seemed to be compounded of burning rubber
mixed with rotten eggs and overlaid with a smell reminiscent of the local landfill on a hot day plus something else that was not identifiable as other than awful. Being in a laboratory there were plenty of disposal points in the shape of sinks so I hurriedly jettisoned the tube contents down the nearest sink. This was, apart from creating the obnoxious odour, my big mistake. Our school was founded and built in 1826. It was built into the bank of the river Wear opposite Durham Castle and was four floors high. Our laboratory was in the middle on the second floor. This placed it in an excellent position to allow any smells to be distributed throughout the whole structure. Regardless of where that dreadful smell originated it was very quickly distributed to all classrooms. This was in the days before there was any likelihood of terrorist-inspired gas attacks, but our whole school was quickly evacuated into the fresh air of the schoolyard. As an evacuee I was unsure what steps were taken to get things back to normal, but after about half-an-hour we were all sent back inside and school resumed. The Upper Sixth chemistry class were identified as the overall source of the trouble and I confessed that it was my scientific experiment that was the specific source. A rather one-sided interview with the headmaster and the chemistry master in the head’s study was the next step. During this interview serious doubts were cast upon my sanity, my sense of responsibility, and many other aspects of my character. I expressed my regrets but had no excuses to offer, nor were any likely to have been accepted! I thought it best not to mention that my information source had never mentioned that carbylamine smelled at all,
let alone smelled so bad. Not even the fact that I had not done any harm, that the smell was not toxic or lasting, and it was done in the spirit of scientific enquiry was likely to mitigate my offence! In particular the fact that I was a prefect and expected to set an example for the younger boys merited special attention. I was returned to class suitably chastised and feeling lucky to have got away relatively lightly. I took little interest in chemistry as a subject thereafter! I doubt if it could all have happened today with access to the internet and its information. Out of curiousity I looked to see what it said about carbylamine. There were many entries but they were summed up in the entry that read “Carbylamine reaction. The treatment of a primary amine with chloroform and alcoholic potash produces carbylamine (isocyanide) which has a most offensive smell.” Even at very minimal quantities carbylamine does have “a most offensive smell,” in fact I have never smelled anything quite so vile, and I have smelled some awful stenches in my engineering career! So please, as some television shows ask us, “Don’t try this at home!” And don’t do it at school either!

Alternatives to healing
edical opinion has sure changed in the last 10 years. Recently the Mayo Clinic published a supplement to their newsletter praising the attributes of what they call “integrative medicine.” Their special report focuses on a combination of high tech cuttingedge treatment used in conjunction with nontraditional techniques and products that focus on the whole person – mind, body and spirit — to achieve optimal health and healing. One wonders what brought about this change in the medical profession’s attitude to any practice that was not scientifically based. Could it be the financial benefit of aligning themselves with millions of people who already use other methods to heal or promote health in an already existing market or have they finally acknowledged the benefits of looking at the whole picture rather than a body part? Whatever, it is a significant breakthrough from traditional medical attitudes
and gives credit to all of the existing therapies that can help people and it is about time. According to the report, 17.7 per cent of the population in the U.S.A. use natural products, 12.7 per cent do deep breathing, 9.4 per cent are participating in meditation and 8.6 per cent use chiropractic/ osteopathic services. with 8.3 per cent having massage therapy. Yoga, acupuncture, Qi gong, Reiki, diet-based therapies, progressive relaxation, guided imagery and homeopathic treatments are also listed with many participants. That’s a lot of people and while the special report points out that it isn’t endorsing any complementary treatment, it calls these practices a rapidly evolving area of medicine. The report also cautions that while the options to pick and choose among complementary, alternative and conventional treatment provides
great opportunities, it also makes health care more complicated. It is important to gather information when considering any product or treatment. Educate yourself about the therapy, talk to people who have used it, look Pat Black it up on the internet or use the library and ask your doctor if you are still not sure. Check the practitioner’s credentials making sure they are from a reliable organization and they have adequate training and experience. Most alternative therapies are not covered by our health plan and can be expensive. Find out exactly how much it will cost and how long it will last and lastly stay open-minded to various treatments but evaluate them carefully. I mentioned in a previous column that I was taking the Chronic Pain Self-Management Course to help me manage chronic arthri-
tis pain and that I would let you know how it went. This course is offered by the Centre on Aging at the University of Victoria and runs for six weeks, two hours each week, and attempts to teach participants to learn to manage pain so that we can live full and satisfying lives. I found it very helpful to review the many options and tools available and to set goals to help me function despite my disability. Some of the tools such as judicial exercising, relaxation techniques and better breathing, as well as pacing and planning time are very helpful in learning to live better lives and develop a healthy life style despite the discomfort of pain.

Venom sting Cats GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
The Kamloops Venom earned the win, but the Vernon Re/Max Tigers made sure it came with a hefty price tag. The Venom relied on dazzling speed and blitzing counterattacks to outgun the Cats 6-4 in Game 1 of the best-of-five Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League championship series Friday night at Wesbild Centre. Yet every time Kamloops went on the attack, the Tigers’ meat-grinder defence was there to welcome them to the hurt locker. “They hit hard and we just have to take it. We gotta pay the price and get bumps and bruises and scratches to get a goal. That’s what it’s about,” said Kamloops’ sniper Riley Donahue, who earned first star for his 2+3 showing. Added Tigers’ head coach Bryan Klein: “Their guys are feeling this game, I’m pretty sure. Our defence dropped them down pretty good.” Trailing 2-0 midway through the first period, the Tigers got on the board when captain Robbie Short scooped up a loose ball and barreled up the floor on a partial shorthanded breakaway to beat netminder Andrew Copeland. In the second period, Jimmy Latin beat Vernon keeper Josh Phillips with a perimeter shot seven seconds into a powerplay. Ben Saklofsky made it 4-1 Kamloops on a breakaway goal at 6:28, and things got worse as Short earned a double minor for a check from behind after the play.
Vernon’s short man went to work as burly Darren Kirby and lanky Matt Kolb repelled the smaller Kamloops players, chewing valuable seconds off the clock. This seemed to spark their teammates as the Cats then recorded three goals in a four-minute span to tie it 4-4 after 40 minutes. Ryan Landels, diving across the crease to bury a low shot, and Kirby, working the hidden ball routine with Short to perfection, scored less than 15 seconds apart. Brooks Christensen provided the equalizer at 18:50. Even Venom head coach Doug Clark was impressed by Kirby’s sleight of hand. “The hidden ball trick was great, it was classic,” beamed Clark. “Everybody on our bench knew where the ball was, but nobody on the floor knew. I’ve always had a lot of respect for Kirby, and it was nice to see him get that one.” Clark, who credits the Tigers for their gritty brand of play, knows his team’s best chance at success lies in their speed. “That’s what we have to do. We certainly don’t have the size they do, so we try to get their bigger guys moving and fill the holes and hopefully get some good chances out of it.” In a back-and-forth third period, Donahue sniped the winner at the five-minute mark with a blast from the top of the perimeter, assisted by Colten DeFrias. Rob Peterson added an empty-net insurance goal with 30 seconds to play. Despite the loss, Phillips didn’t think Kamloops were at there best Friday night. “I was actually expecting a tougher game.

The Re/Max Tigers’ Brett Hanna (facing) withstands a double team by the Venom’s Chase McLeod (right) and Jamie Forster in Game 1 of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League championship series Friday night at Wesbild Centre. I thought they were going to come out a lot harder, just from the last game we played, but they were a little bit softer than I thought they were going to come out,” he said. Vernon finally started getting players cutting through the middle in the final period, and Klein expects more of that in Game 2, which goes Monday night at Memorial Arena
in Kamloops. Game 3 goes Tuesday night (all games are 7:30) at Wesbild. “We didn’t take advantage of what they gave us on defence,” said Klein. “We should have been cutting to the middle because their defence was wide open. Our forwards were a little timid, but it’ll come.”

Down by a goal early, Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers stormed back with five first-half goals to upend NET Celtics 5-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Competitive Division play Thursday night at Marshall Field #4. Lady of the Match Kelsey Halvorson scored her first two goals of the season, and almost completed the hat trick on a solo effort in the second half, using her Bobby Orr-like moves to go around six defenders, only to shoot wide on the breakaway. Alana Rehman also scored twice, both blasts from 25 yards out, and Kim Teichman, on a great give-and-go with Jacquie Hansen, rounded out the scoring. Checkers keeper Lisa Arrotta stopped a late penalty kick. Little Tex Outlaws cruised to a 6-0 win over Vernon Venom Thursday night at Marshall #5. The Tex crew got goals from Lindsay Lee (2), Tonia Ghattis, Kayla Palfrey, Hannah Ross and Jenn Knopp. Christine Fraser, Anita Rea and Palfrey shared

Shamrocks wrap up title Morning Star Staff
Just three years ago, the Armstrong Shamrocks were on the verge of extinction. Facing a lack of players, team leaders Chad Pounder, Chad Pieper, Pat Nelson and Shaun Koenig called a meeting, urging their teammates to keep the Shamrock tradition alive. After a pair of roller-coaster seasons, the gut-check paid off Thursday night at Wesbild Centre, as the Irish returned to the top of the Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League, claiming their first pennant in seven years. Paced by a hat-trick performance from Jr. ‘Rocks graduate Logan Strohm, Armstrong doubled the Vernon Tigers 6-3 before a crowd of 500, primarily Shamrocks faithful, to finish at 8-4 and clinch the title. The Sr. ‘Rocks credit the junior program that graduated six players in 2009, and will see five more join their ranks in 2011. Grads Strohm and Delaney Halifax are already having a huge impact with the senior club this season. The Shamrocks, who fired 52 shots at the Vernon net, struck just 20 seconds into the game when Koenig picked up a rebound in front Tiger starter Ivor Sandaker and buried a shot over the goalie’s right shoulder. Nathan Strohm ripped a low bounce shot past Sandaker a few minutes later, and Ian Gowland, bulling his way to the front of the net, made it 3-0. The goal of the night came later in the first period when Logan Strohm passed to Halifax, then made a quick move around his defender, catching a bullet return pass from Halifax and burying a one-timer that Sandaker had no chance of saving. Despite controlling play in the second frame, the ‘Rocks were held scoreless. Shane Sargent put the Cats on the board with a hard offhand shot that beat Pieper (28
Tigers playing tough Continued from A22 Klein adds the longer this series goes, the more it will favour Vernon’s physical style of play. He knows they will have to pay closer attention to Donahue. “It took a couple games, but last year by the end he was a non-factor. He takes a while to wear down. He’s a very good player, he’s a big boy and he shoots from anywhere.” If necessary, Games 4 and 5 would go Thursday and Saturday night respectively in Kamloops and Vernon.

Armstrong outworked us, plain and simple.” Vernon’s frustration boiled over in the third period as they took several undisciplined penalties. Tiger enforcer Trevor McEachnie tried to engage several Shamrocks into fisticuffs, but got no takers. Sargent scored a dribbler midway through the period to cut the lead in half, but on the ensuing play Logan Strohm notched his second goal on a beautiful fast break with Rhys Parsons, beating Glen Clissold, who replaced Sandaker in the second period. The Tigers’ Steve Latimer buried a one-timer from the left side on a pass from Kirk Krause to make it 5-3.
A late double-minor to the Shamrocks’ Glenn Mitchell opened a window of opportunity for the Tigers, who attempted to pull their goalie for an extra attacker. The play backfired as the ageless Nelson picked up a loose ball and found a streaking Logan Strohm cutting through the middle to set up the emptynetter. “We were a very focused team tonight,” said Shamrocks’ assistant coach Doug Morrison. “We were moving well on offence, making clean passes and working as a team at both ends of the floor.” Added Armstrong head coach Ken McGregor: “We worked on some defensive strategies that seemed to work well tonight. We forced them to make plays out of their zone which took a lot of time off the 30-second clock and helped our defence not have to be on the floor as long.” The two teams will carry on their rivalry in Game 1 of
the best-of-three Shaw Cup Championship semifinal, which goes Monday night (7:30) at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. Game 2 goes Wednesday at Civic Arena, and, if necessary, Game 3 would be played Friday at Nor-Val. Hurst believes the Tigers have more to show than people might expect. “We just have to raise our effort level, and just being in the playoffs will help us do that,” said Hurst. “We’ve got something to prove. We’re a lot better than our (3-9) record indicates, things are coming together, and I think we’ll surprise some people.” Meanwhile, the host Kelowna Raiders fell 8-7 to the Kamloops Rattlers Friday night at the stifling hot Memorial Arena. The defending champion Raiders dipped to 7-5, settling for second place. The Rattlers finished in third at 6-6.

Urquhart sparks Driller offensive Continued from A22 Johnston capitalized by running the ball into the net as compassionate Drillers’ keeper Shaun Nickoli comforted the blinded Roddis. Playing in the scorching heat, the Drillers responded with some tic-tac-toe passing from Glenda Hatten to Lena Urquhart to Christine Castrucow, who evened the score. The Drillers, coached by Janeece Miller, got their second goal on a great through pass from Tina Garrison to Urquhart, who beat a defender and the keeper. Then, spotting Garrison in front, Urquhart delivered a great cross from the wing which Garrison calmly tucked into the low corner. NOU responded when the talented Andrea
Zubot fired a high beauty up and over the Drillers’ keeper to trail 3-2 at halftime. Shelley Zupp kept the Goplen girls rolling in the second half, burying a through ball from Garrison. Urquhart completed the Driller offensive with a great solo effort. Rhonda Underwood, who patrolled the back line and played a sound defensive game to keep NOU’s attack under control, was Goplen’s Player of the Game. Nickoli used her height and strong volleyball hands to make some great saves. NOU got great encouragement from standin coach Pam Powell, who ran the sidelines with finesse, shouting advice and urging United on in the relentless heat.

Kraus steers south
Dawson nets two
Speedy midfielder Dave Dawson scored two late breakaway goals as Vernon Kal Tire stuffed the Kelowna Kickers 4-0 in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League action Thursday night at Mission Sports Field. Defender Rich Zecchel netted the winner in the 12th minute, burying a hard 25-yard low shot which beat Kelowna keeper Kelly Biffard to the right side corner. Dawson, who earned the Cialis Man of the Match, fed a streaking Zecchel a 10-yard pass up the middle. Midfielder Jim Sparrow made it 2-0 on a stellar solo performance early in the second half. Ken James earned the shutout as Kal Tire went to 10-2-1. In other action, Rob Ross supplied two goals and took the Old Milwaukee Man of the Match as Vernon Silver Stars brushed back Penticton 4-1 at Constable Neil Bruce School in West Kelowna. Assisted by the wind in the opening half, the Stars took the lead early after a neat passing exchange found Keith Chancellor unmarked in front of goal. The game was tied 1-1 at the half. The Stars anticipated a Penticton onslaught in the second half, but it never came. The opposition tired, allowing Vernon to score three unanswered goals, two from Ross and a single by Colin Greveling. Vernon improved to 9-3-1.
“He’s not going to be that offensive guy, but when it came down to it, he was a guy that we leaned on and he was a big part of why we won (the RBC). “We’ve got a couple players in that situation,” added Ferner, referring to Viper veterans Robbie Short and netminder Graeme Gordon. Kraus, who is currently staying with his family near Everett, Wash., plans on coming back to Vernon to help Ferner with his hockey camps, and getting in some ice time with the Vipers before heading to Texas in late September. “It’s nice to be home with the family, but I do miss Vernon and I do miss Canada,” said Kraus, whose parents used to live in Texas. “They said I’ll love it. I’m excited for a new opportunity.” Kraus has yet to met his new head coach (Dan Wildfong), but says he got a good vibe from talking with him on the phone. “We talked and I got pretty comfortable with him and felt it was going to be a good fit. They haven’t seen me play, but in that league it’s a lot of word of mouth. “I’m more of a steady, stayat-home, physical defenceman, but I’m capable of adding some offence too. I’m going in there pretty confident having had two good years with the Vipers.” And if Kraus has any questions, he can get some sound advice from older brother, Tim, who plays in the East Coast Hockey League with California-

After three seasons with the Vernon Vipers, Kevin Kraus is headed home to the U.S. The Garden Grove, Calif. product, who captained the Vernon Vipers to their second straight RBC Cup national junior A hockey title in May, has signed a pro contract with the Texas Brahmas of the Central Hockey League. Kraus, who turns 21 in September, has spent the months following the national championship win mulling over his options. The 6-foot-2, 205pound blueliner would have loved a shot at playing European pro hockey, but admits he would have been a long shot to earn a contract. “It’s hard for us to come out of junior A without making a name for yourself first. There are guys from the Dub (WHL) that have a hard time getting over there,” said Kraus, who posted 50 points and 168 penalty minutes in 129 career games with the Snakes. As Vipers’ head coach Mark Ferner points out, playing in the CHL is far better than not playing at all. “It’s not so much where you’re playing, it’s continuing to play. It’s keeping your foot in the door,” said Ferner, who Kraus credits for helping him earn a shot with the Brahmas. “I’m just happy for Kevin. He kind of bounced around for a bit (in the WHL), but he found a home here.

Conditions were ideal for the second round of the Vernon junior inter-club golf Friday afternoon at Spallumcheen Golf and Country Club. There were plenty of good individual scores, including Spall’s Thomas Swales shooting a 73 to help his team to three points. It was a close call in match 3 as Sheldon Kubberness barely missed an eagle putt on 18 to half the match against Hillview’s Cole Cirnic and Brad Phillips. Both predator teams had good performances, collecting 5.5 out of a possible six points. The final inter-club round-robin goes Monday at Predator.

The Vernon Expos outlasted West Kelowna 14-11 in Pee Wee A minor baseball action Tuesday night at Creekside Park. Vernon got strong pitching from starter Brayden Damini, who went twoand-a-third innings before giving way to workhorse Dylan Emmons, who held the mound for three-and-two-third innings of relief, fanning six West Kelowna batters. Vernon punished the opposing pitcher early, scoring four of the first five batters sent to the plate. West Kelowna responded in the top of the third inning, scoring five times to take a 7-6 lead. The Expos stormed back with six runs in the bottom of the third, highlighted by a bases-loaded double by Jacob Holland, who earned two RBI on the play. But West Kelowna wouldn’t go away, bringing the tying run to the plate at the top of the sixth inning, but Dylan Emmons hung tough, striking out the last batter to preserve the victory. Vernon was led at the dish by Ty Wellman and Noah Alleyne, both going 2-for-3. Vernon 2-1 were in zone play heading into the Valley of the Champs Tournament this weekend in Kelowna.

! PLACE FOR COMMUNITY CARA BRADY
Morning Star Staff
It has been almost 110 years since St. James Anglican Church moved from its original location in Lansdowne to its permanent home on Patterson Avenue in Armstrong. The 1891 moving day must have been quite an event with one team of horses pulling the 1885 building and another team behind to make sure it didnâ€™t slide downhill too fast. The church is still moving forward, in a different way this time with renovations to the building to fit it to serve the congregation and community at least until it celebrates its 200th anniversary in 2085. When the work is all done at the end of July the building will have an up-dated parish hall and kitchen, disability access and landscaped courtyard. â€œThe church has been a wonderful part of the community in the past and we look forward to the future,â€? said Pastor Cory Rundell. With a crew that fittingly includes Matthew, John, James and Paul, all named for New Testament writers, the work is going well. â€œWeâ€™ve really enjoyed working with the congregation. Itâ€™s an honour to work on a historic building â€” they built well in those days, the original building is a work of art â€” and retain its character and recycle as much as possible while updating it to modern standards,â€? said Don Purdon of D&P Design and Construction. The renovations to the building are funded by the Friends of St. James (congregation) with a
matching $50,000 donation in honour of Marion Hope by her daughter and son-in-law, Margaret Hope and Karl Vanderspeak of Burnaby. There was also a $10,000 donation from the Community Foundation of the North Okanagan as the church is used by community groups. One group, Community Kitchens, donated a new stove. â€œThe church has always been a place for community gathering to celebrate the joys of life, like weddings, baptisms and anniversaries, and the sorrows, to say good-bye at a funeral. We had one couple who was married here 50 years ago come back to celebrate their anniversary here,â€? said Rundell. â€œThatâ€™s what churches do best, help people honour what it is to be a human being. The faith community respects, supports and cares for people in whatever way is needed.â€? The church has always had worship services, choirs, youth activities and for many years was famous for the IPE dinners. â€œThe thing that has touched me most about this project is that all the people we have come in contact with have been so supportive and helpful. There is a sense of valuing the history, heritage and values of the community in which they live. The older people have to pass this on to the younger and to the people who choose to move here. We are here to value and support people in their lives.â€? There will be an open house for St. James Anglican Church in September with the 125th anniversary celebration in October.

ernon is full of runners. Young, old, fast, slow, 10 K runners, marathoners, half marathoners, ultra marathoners and triathletes. The spectrum is wide. So why can’t the training be? We have become slaves to the roads, to the distance. Logging that we ran 10.2 miles in one hour 20 minutes and two seconds. Our heart rate monitors and garmins are what we focus on more than the run itself. We run fartleks, intervals, hill repeats. These forms and techniques of training are excellent, and needed. Don’t get me wrong. But runners: spice it up! All you road runners who run on the roads, with supplemental speed workouts on the track need to hit the trails occasionally. Get off the beaten path. Discover Kal Park trails, Grey Canal or BX trail. You will love the variety and what it adds to your running. The variability in terrain makes trail running uniquely challenging. Hills and descents are typically steeper; the ground is uneven and can frequently change in consistency. Trails are often complicated with roots, rocks and narrow twisting turns.

safe transition to trail running is to recognize that although it is running. It is not the same as road running. You may want to invest in trail shoes. These give you greater support and stability than road shoes. And they have better outsole tread patterns that increase traction. It should be treated like a new activity. Start with shorter runs to give your body time to adapt to the new demands you are placing on it. Your leg stabilizers and core muscles need time to adjust. Be sure to slow your trail run down. Your pace should be at least 10-25 per cent slower on the trail than it is on the road. Keep your eyes open. Scan the immediate two to three meters ahead of your feet to identify hazards. If you start gazing into the woods too much you will be eating dirt. And lastly, shorten your stride.
This will give you more ground contact time and enable you to negotiate technical terrain more safely. Integrating trails into a portion of your program can give your running an edge without compromising your mileage or speed. If you are looking to reinvigorate your running try the trails. Kal Park can keep you running, anywhere from an hour to three hours. The change in scenery may do your joints, muscles and mind some good. Hope to see you out there!

Riding for a trip to remember LIAM WACEY Special to The Morning Star
When a long journey brings you to your destination, you can not help but reflect on the good times you were blessed with, and the bad times you endured. My cross-Canada ride has been at times so difficult I thought of nothing more than giving up and going home, and at others I knew there was no place in the world I would rather be than right where I was. For instance, I was lucky enough to start in British Columbia, which means that I was forced to move at a slower pace as my legs and mind became accustomed to the challenges of the road. This gave me the opportunity to really take in the majesty of the Monashees, the tranquil alpine lakes of the Kootenays and the surprisingly green Rockies. If a complete trip must contain both good and bad, then my travels across the prairies would be that to a “T.” In Alberta I sailed across the province in two days with a tailwind that just never let up. I was at the height of joy, sometimes going whole minutes without pedaling at all and losing no speed. It was awesome. Once I hit Saskatchewan, however, the winds shifted, and they brought with them rain — pouring rain that was made all the worse by the way it blew right into my jacket. Saskatchewan was the worst of the trip
Vernon resident Liam Lacey pauses on Parliament Hill in Ottawa, during his cross-Canada ride to raise funds and awareness for the Sierra Club. for me, I think. And like I have said before, the thing that is so frustrating about the prairies is that they have moments of incredibly sublime beauty, and yet have the audacity to be so terrible the rest of the time. Manitoba was better, the rain at least stopped, if not the head wind. It felt good to be back amongst forest as well. Once I crossed into Ontario (and saw a “Ski Silver Star” sticker on the welcome sign, which made my day) it was as though the terrain immediately changed to reflect the new province. The land became hilly, and dotted with lakes, large and small. These lakes were unlike the clear blue of Okanagan lake, or the shifting greens of Kal. Minerals

Is it safe to give bones to my dogs?
Sometimes. Cooked bones tend to be more brittle and thus splinter easily. This may result in injuries to gums, esophagus, or the lining of intestines. Intestinal inﬂammation may occur, leading to digestive upset with vomiting and/or diarrhea. If big pieces are swallowed they may cause an obstruction, hollow soup bone pieces occasionally slip over and then get caught on the lower jaw. Occasionally, teeth will break and may have to be removed. Raw bones may cause the same problems as above, in addition to contaminating your ﬂoor or yard with such dangerous bacteria as Salmonella or E.coli. Dogs with compromised health may themselves develop infection with those same pathogens. Even commercially offered dog bones may break teeth or cause enteritis due to chemicals used to prepare them. There is no dispute that chewing is good exercise for your dog but consider the risks. Even if a bone is not raw, is strong enough not to splinter, and is big enough not to be swallowed whole, an aggressive chewer may still suffer tooth damage. — Dr. Herbert Mehl, DVM

in the rocks gave the water a rust brown look, although the water itself was clear and cool. Ontario was my favourite province of the trip. The sun shined and the trees and hills made me feel like I was in the wilderness of Canada, instead of just riding along a farmers field as I had been so far. I was excited to have made it to Ottawa for Canada Day, and to meet everyone from the Sierra Club head office. Quebec is
like France; lots of small towns dotted around a ton of fields and every one of these small towns has a big church with steeples. In Quebec City, I was lucky enough to take in a free Cirque du soleil show. the perfect complement to being in the oldest French settlement in North America. The Maritimes were so much more hilly than I had expected, and the heat was oppressive, mostly due to the humidity. I had more good days than bad at this point, feeling always that no matter how hard things were, I was so close to the end. I made it to Halifax July 13, exactly seven weeks after my departure. Not that my trip is over. I am flying into Vancouver, and plan to finish off the last chunk of Canada I did not get due to my late departure caused by a knee injury. I will be arriving in Vernon between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Tuesday, and I plan to ride straight to Kal Beach, where friends and family will be waiting to greet me, and I encourage any one who wants to to come out and say hi!

Sunday, July 18, 2010 - The Morning Star B5
EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Enderby is the place to be next weekend KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Known for its picturesque setting along the Shuswap River, its quaint downtown, and caring community, Enderby also has a deep-rooted artistic core. Not only do a number of artists live there, they take pride in their city as seen with endeavours such as community plays, mural projects, ongoing events and a very active arts council. The city is about to celebrate its artistic side in all its forms with the inaugural Enderby Arts Festival. Presented by the Enderby and District Arts Council, the festival takes place Saturday, July 24 and Sunday, July 25 with visual and aural delights to please every palate. “2010 is the first Enderby Arts Festival and we plan to build this into an exciting annual event,” said arts council president Neil Fidler. “Our aim is to establish a good foundation for trying out some of our more exotic ideas next year.” The fun kicks off with an artisans market and entertainment stage, which will take place along Maud Street, downtown, Saturday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “This is the arts council’s fifth outdoor market and it’s shaping up to be the best yet,” said Fidler. “We have vendors coming from Winfield and Vernon through to Blind Bay and Chase, and even
Lethbridge, Alberta.” Entries into Enderby’s Snapshots and Shutterbug photo contest will be displayed in the Masonic Hall, at the corner of Mill Avenue and Maud Street, while the entertainment stage, located in the Maud Street parking lot, will feature live music by a number of emerging artists all day long. A medieval fair will also take place Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Enderby’s Belvidere Park. The Vernon chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, known as the Shire of Krakenfjord, will take onlookers back to the 10th century with medieval games, group dancing, rapier sword play, armoured warrior combat, wheat threshing, spinning and weaving, and more. Maud Avenue will later be transformed as people take to the street for a party Saturday starting at 5 p.m. with kids activities, demos, Polynesian dancing, as well as a family dance with live music from 7 to 9 p.m. More live music comes when the Evans Sisters and their band play country, folk and soft rock by the river at Belvidere Park, Sunday at 7 p.m. In addition to events put on by the arts council, visitors may want to take in the exhibition, Grindrod, Celebrating 100 Years as a Village, at the Enderby and District Museum,

Sword fighters from the Vernon chapter of the Society for Creative Anachronism, the Shire of Krakenfjord, perform for the Medieval Fair, part of the Enderby Arts Festival, Saturday in Belvidere Park. Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The exhibition celebrates the approach of Grindrod’s centenary, Aug. 7. Mara is also getting on board with the heritage tea and duck
race, featuring live music, an oldfashioned cake walk and more at the Mara Community Hall, Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. There is also Runaway Moon Theatre’s two-night presentation
of its community play, Sawllkwa, at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre. (See story below.) For more information about the Enderby Arts Festival, contact Alyson Witts at 250-838-2274.
Runaway Moon brings water to life Morning Star Staff

Constance Christian makes a coyote mask for Sawllkwa, Runaway Moon Theatre’s outdoor community play at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre.
Visitors will be able to splash in Splats’in culture, and shower themselves in the wonder of water when Runaway Moon Theatre presents Sawllkwa. Meaning water in the Splats’in language, the community outdoor play takes place along the banks of the Shuswap River at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre next weekend. All the preparations for the grand-scale production have kicked into high gear with the arrival of director Varrick Grimes from Stratford, Ont. “This event has been made in the incredible Kingfisher location with all the woods, trails, river, beaches and building,” said Grimes. “Audiences should prepare to move and be moved, as the action takes place in a number of different locations. Rosalind Williams, Splats’in cultural historian, has been working with us on theme, concept
and stories, guiding our exploration of water, right here in the Shuswap watershed.” Rehearsal for the community collaboration has been in development since last fall. Enderby’s Drill Hall is now overflowing with beaver, grizzly and coyote, a selkie, children, adults, puppets, stiltwalkers and music makers. Hundreds of locals have been involved in the monumental undertaking and have been inspired to explore their creative sides, making ceramic vessels, music and movement inspired by water, and decorating fabric with dyeing and printing techniques. See their efforts when Sawllkwa takes place at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, rain or shine, at the Kingfisher Interpretive Centre, located at 2550 Mabel Lake Rd., 25 kilometers east of Enderby. Entrance is by donation. More information is available at 250306-3935 or visit www.runawaymoon.org.

Veteran honoured in song Morning Star Staff
Armstrong veteran Vern Flatekval’s remarkable story will once again be honoured in Vernon at the Tuesday in the Trees lunchtime event. John Spearn, a Canadiana-folkroots-celtic songwriter, is returning to Vernon and has dedicated one of his songs to Flatekval and his Memorial Mountain Project. The song, Memorial Mountain, is part of Spearn’s Songs for Canada, which the Alberta-based former teacher has been performing around the country. “We are extremely pleased to have John Spearn back to perform at Tuesdays in the Trees this year” said Holly Schmidt, DVA events and marketing coordinator. “We are also very excited to have Vern Flatekval joining us in the park on Tuesday and encourage all to come down and join John in honouring Vern and the Memorial Mountain Project.” Flatekval, a 90-year-old veteran, is one of only living Second World War tailgunners.
He survived 36 missions in the rear gun turret of a Lancaster bomber over Germany. According to documents, over the peak years of allied bomber command activities, these men survived an average of seven missions. Flatekval has spent his latter years working towards the development of a hiking trail to Memorial Mountain in Armstrong. “What I want to do is have a hiking trail called The Trail of Heroes. There is currently no public access to Memorial Mountain, but I remember that we used to go up there and pick berries as boys. A lot of us thought about it when we were overseas. We all need to remember the wars because war must never happen again,” Flatekval told The Morning Star recently. Spearn’s performance begins at 11 a.m. in Vernon’s Cenotaph Park. For more information on the Tuesdays in the Trees entertainment program, contact the DVA at 250-542-5851 or visit www.downtownvernon.com.

CHRIS SHIDELER One of the symptoms of allergies is red, itchy and runny eyes. Often, these symptoms can be controlled by taking an antihistamine tablet but sometimes eye drops can bring more immediate relief. Products like Visine-A and Naphcon-A contain an antihistamine and decongestant to “get the red out” and reduce itching. As we age, we often lose a bit of height. This is because the little cushions or disks between our vertebrae often dry out and thin with age. We can slow this process down by doing regular exercise which actually exercises the disks as well by compressing and relaxing them. Another plus for regular exercise! Obesity is a major health problem in the developed world. It is so prevalent that you can be sure that much research is going on to develop medications that can encourage weight loss. New products will come on the market within the next decade that will work by slowing stomach emptying making people feel full sooner. Since fat consumption is responsible for much of the weight-gain, some drugs will reduce fat absorption or perhaps increase metabolism. But why wait? Use the advice from the comment above and start exercising (and eating less). The cold turkey method of quitting smoking is often underrated. But many people quit just this way and are successful. It is the most common method of unassisted cessation around but requires persistence and willpower. But it can be done. If cold turkey doesn’t work for you, our pharmacists can help. We would be happy to help you on the road to better health. Have Your Prescriptions Filled With Us

Strings fellow back with new CD Continued from page B8 Since his last CD, Brass and Gold, released in 2008, Ashby has been touring relentlessly, performing more than 200 shows across Canada, including a visit to Armstrong last year, and somehow squeezing in two tours with Delirium as well. “I am working at building an audience for my music, playing shows and improving as a songwriter and performer,” he said. McLachlan’s guitarist since 1996, Ashby has been featured on a number of the singer’s hit albums and has appeared on the Grammy Awards twice, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno five times, Saturday Night Live and David Letterman three times.
Also the leader of band Jack Tripper, Ashby’s guitar playing has appeared on CDs with sales in excess of 10 million copies worldwide... so far. His new album, 24 Hours of Daylight, showcases his guitar skills and earthy vocals on a
new set of strong tunes with a rootsy bent. The record also features his deft technique on lap steel guitar, a highlight of his live shows. Ashby takes the stage at the Armstrong Inn, 3400 Smith Dr., Wednesday at 8 p.m. No cover.

Tim Hortons fills afternoon ‘void’ JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
Sugar-holics of the North Okanagan unite. Vernon’s latest dieting nemesis, the Cold Stone Creamery, has opened its doors. The ice cream store, which set up shop inside the 32nd Street Tim Hortons, has been open since Canada Day, but will have its official grand opening on Saturday. Since Tim Hortons bought the Canadian rights to the American chain, 40 stores have opened across the country. “We’re expecting 100 locations by the end of the year, and 300 by the end of next year,” said Dan Currie, owner of all four Tim Hortons locations in Vernon, and now the new Cold Stone Creamery. Cold Stone is not the first ice cream store to open in Vernon, but Currie says it brings something a little different to the consumer. “It’s the ultimate ice cream experience,” he said. The staff will throw ice cream up in the air and sing for tips. They even have a banana song. “It’s just a really fun atmosphere.” This business within a business adds a variety of new products to the Tim Hortons location. Aside from the countless possible ice cream creations (there are tried and tested Cold Stone signatures, or custom creations using almost any ingredient you can think of), there are also cakes with ice cream filling, cupcakes, and a variety of smoothies. The ice cream is made fresh in the back with Canadian dairy, and is served in either a waffle cone or a bowl in three different sizes: Like It, Love It, and Gotta Have It.
“Anything goes really. There’s no ‘you can’t do this,’” said Currie. People can request anything be put in their ice cream or cake. “You can even put a doughnut in there if you want.” And one customer actually did. It may be too early to determine a best seller, but their signature Peanut Butter Cup Perfection has been selling like crazy. The decadent treat includes chocolate ice cream (which is super premium hard ice cream), peanut butter, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, and fudge. Tim Hortons, famous nationwide for its large doubledouble, is busiest during the morning and around lunch time. What Currie is hoping Cold Stone will do is keep the customers coming in during the slower hours from 3 to 11 p.m. “It really rounds it out for us. We’re already busy, this will just help fill that void,” said Currie. The renovations to accommodate the Cold Stone Creamery side of the store took only two days, and it has created about 20 part-time jobs. The store is already attracting business. Currie requested that Cold Stone go into that location specifically because it is right on the highway. “And we got some good weather finally,” said Currie. As of now, there are no plans to expand Cold Stone Creamery into the other three Vernon locations. “We’ll just see how this goes first.” In the meantime Currie is happy about one perk in particular. “Now I don’t have to go somewhere else for my ice cream.”

After a few stressful years, government officials have a hopeful outlook on the current state of small business in British Columbia. Minister of Small Business, Technology and Economic Development Iain Black stopped in Vernon on Wednesday for a Small Business Roundtable at the Best Western Vernon Lodge and Conference Centre. These province-wide roundtables became a permanent fixture of the B.C. government back in 2005, and since then the small business ministers have gone on 42 tours. The purpose of these casual meetings is to “gather input and direction as to how government can help,” said Black. Suggestions and concerns that are raised at the roundtables provide the input for a report that will later be pre-

“I go where there is a high level of interest,” said Black. Almost all of the 40 registered participants in Vernon showed up for the roundtable. Black said all of B.C. should have a vested interest in the state of the small business sector. We depend on them as much as they depend on us. B.C. has the highest percentage of workers employed by small businesses in the country at 54 per cent, and one third of the province’s GDP comes from small businesses. B.C. also has one of the highest per capita rates of small business owners. Eightyeight out of 1,000 British Columbians own a small business. The national average is 70. The B.C. Liberals want to make B.C. the most competitive market in North America. And the Small Business Roundtables, which Black described as a “B.C. phenomenon,” are a means to that end.

China is now B.C.’s fastest growing market for lumber products and recently passed Japan to become the second-largest market by volume after the United States. Lumber exports in 2009 hit a record high of 1.6 billion board feet valued at more than $327 million, and the equivalent production of six large Interior sawmills.

YOU AND THE LAW FIGURING OUT SPOUSAL SUPPORT By Janice Mucalov, LL.B. Eugene and Marlene Yemchuk were married for 35 years and had one grown child when they divorced. He was 63, retired, and earned $37,600 from investment and other income. She was 61, worked with the federal government, and earned $75,000 a year. They divided their assets, and he applied for spousal support until his wife retired at age 65. How much support should he get? When a couple divorces, one spouse often seeks maintenance or support from the other. However, unlike child support, spousal support isn’t automatic. Whether you’re entitled to support depends on several factors. These include the length of your marriage, the difference between your income and your spouse’s, your ability to make a living, and whether you gave up your career to stay home and look after the children. Husbands are also eligible for support.
port can go on indeﬁnitely. Support is also for an indeﬁnite term for marriages of 5 years or more, where the number of years of marriage plus the age of the spouse receiving support totals 65 or more (e.g., if a 12-year marriage ends when the support recipient is 55, the duration will be indeﬁnite because 12 years of marriage plus the age of 55 equals 67). Let’s look at an example. Say John and Julie have been married 10 years and have no children. John, 43, earns $75,000 gross as a pharmaceutical salesman and Julie, 38, makes $35,000 as a dance teacher. Multiplying 1.5 to 2% by the number of years of their marriage (10) yields a percentage of 15 to 20%. Multiplying those two ﬁgures by the difference in their gross incomes ($40,000) results in a range of spousal support that John should pay Julie of $6,000 year ($500 month) to $8,000 year ($667 month). The duration is .5 to 1 multiplied by 10 years of marriage – or 5 to 10 years of support.

Business Community gets their say
t isn’t everyday that our provincial government officials come to the Greater Vernon area to listen to the various voices of our community, but this past week, the business community had that opportunity. The Small Business Roundtable discussion was in Vernon on July 14. In speaking with organizers of this event, I was pleased to hear that our area produced a record attendance, and the level of participation supplied some of the best Val Trevis content they have heard throughout these sessions to date. Good news for our area and kudos to our business community for showing up and speaking out. Here to listen to our business owners was Minister of Small Business, Technology and Economic Development Iain Black, who chairs the roundtable committee and receives the findings from the 22 members of the board for this committee. I can assure you that Greater Vernon business had a lot on their minds and plenty to say. The agenda was designed to solicit specific, yet very pertinent information from our business sector. What is the regulatory requirement that creates the biggest difficulty for your business? What types of small business training opportunities are priorities for you? Is this training available in your area? What are some of the innovative approaches that local businesses have adopted to enhance small business in your community? Are there any other important local opportunities you would like to raise? With 40 businesses participating, you can imagine the extent of the diversity in the responses provided. Participation was exceptional with every single business representative engaging in the process. Everyone had something to say that they felt
would improve the ability for business owners to streamline their operations and function more effectively overall. Looking at this session though the eyes of the Chamber of Commerce, the final question was very intriguing and most certainly provided a broad spectrum of responses. The roundtable asked: “If there was one action that could be taken to enhance small business in your community, what would it be?” Some of the answers were expected and anticipated while others were interesting, impassioned, creative, varied and maybe surprising to a few people. Our business community said: Find ways to create opportunity in our community that keeps our children here. Create a mentoring program for high school students. Showcase small business success to the outside world. Establish long term infrastructure planning. Support the local rail systems to promote stable investment in our communities. Continue to invest in the small business community in both good and bad times. Liaise between schools and the business community. And provide training opportunities for both employees and employers. Vernon was recently named the most entrepreneurial city in B.C., and sitting in that room, listening to the voices of business owners who represent all walks of life, it was easy to understand why we earned that title. These individuals are dedicated, committed and willing to go the extra mile to invest in our community, supporting our economic viability both now and in the future. Our community is comprised of small, medium and some larger businesses, but our economy is driven by a makeup of approximately 80 per cent small business. They support your community so please support them. Val Trevis is the general manager of the Greater Vernon Chamber of Commerce.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Bridge is a strange game in that sometimes two wrongs can produce a right. Two partners err, but they counterbalance each other, resulting in the correct contract. This deal, also from the social game I kibitzed earlier this year, is an example. What do you think of the auction? How should South plan the play in four spades after West leads the diamond queen? North’s takeout double, with only two low diamonds, is not textbook. And South’s jump to two spades was an underbid. By an unpassed hand, a jump advance promises 9-11 points and a cue-bid of opener’s suit shows 12-
plus. But by a passed hand, these ranges are lowered by a couple of points. South should have cue-bid two hearts. Then North should have passed out two spades -- but four spades had good play. South should see three top losers: one spade, one diamond and one club. The trick is to avoid a second club loser. But the opening lead marks East with the diamond king. So West must have the club ace. It is time to lead toward honors. After South wins with the diamond ace and plays a trump, let’s assume West takes the second spade and continues with another diamond. East will win this trick and shift to his heart,
hoping to get a heart ruff. However, his luck is out. Declarer wins on the board, plays a trump to his hand, and leads a club. When the ace appears, South can claim. He takes two spades, three hearts, one diamond, two clubs, one heart ruff in the dummy and one club ruff in his hand.

Canoe the Canadian wild CHRIS MCBEATH Special To The Morning Star
ONTARIO — The tent foundered between two spindly jack pines, looking more like a failed IKEA challenge than a domicile. It wouldn’t have passed Boy Scouts’ muster but as we scrambled beneath its crumpled green sheets, our rakish habitat provided dry refuge from a sudden torrential downpour. It wasn’t quite what I had imagined when embarking on our quintessential Canadian adventure but if there’s one thing to learn in the outback, it’s to stay dry. Although my companion and I could have chosen a resortstyled eco-adventure, they seemed tame in comparison to pursuing our inner pioneer: that no-holds-barred wilderness experience that Davey Crockett, (and Pierre Trudeau for that matter) immortalized in their buckskins and coonskin fur hats. Besides, the process of pitching a tent, building a fire, and listening to the loons call you to sleep can be one of the most romantic, enriching and family-bonding experiences available. So it was with intrepid heart that I ditched the stilettos and joined my outdoorsy partner for a week in the northwestern Ontario wilderness. First off was to hook up with Canoe Canada, a knowledgeable outfitter who custom-tailor packages to ability, preference and budget whether it’s a three day excursion down river (ideal for novices) or flying to a wilderness cabin and paddling your way back to civilization. We chose the latter, and as the float plane left us at a cabin at some indistinct pinpoint in the Atkikokan region, the raw stillness of our decision was palpable. Surrounded by a tangled network of bassfilled waters, woodlands and marshy meadows cut with moose trails,

A visitor navigates her canoe into a wilderness channel located in northwestern Ontario.
After a day of canoeing and exploring, there’s nothing better than cooking over a campfire. our mission was to navigate these routes for some 85 miles to another indistinct pinpoint on the map. In the Ojibwe language, Atikokan means “caribou bones,” and as I looked out across the three-mile lake — the start of our paddling journey — I mused as to whose bones they might have found at the end of the trip! We were wellequipped. The canoe was fully stocked with a tent and tarpaulins, pots and scouring pads, and more than enough food packs, chocolate bars and treats to survive our itinerary.
With an eye on a couple of portages, our personal gear was minimal and with the prospect of catching lake trout and wall eye en route, we left half our supplies behind. Travelling at the speed of your oar, route maps are easy to follow and paddling becomes intuitive after a few hours. Most of the recommended campsites are on rocky outcrops or islands the size of a postage stamp, so bears aren’t an issue. And the call of wolves is as distant as the stars. Seeing another person is such a rarity that when the soft
drone of a bush pilot crisscrosses the area, there’s an imagined assurance that periodically at least, someone is “up there” checking up on your progress. Priorities shift in the wilderness. Rising at daybreak is rewarded with soft, easy waters, and the energy of nature awakening — the memory of which still quiets my soul. The all important morning latte is traded for the art of simply boiling water; salads give way to pan fried, just-caught smallmouth bass which not only trumps trout in taste but is mouth-wateringly
delicious after a day of paddling. And standing buck-naked on a rock to wash is welcome relief from clothes that cling to your body through the sheer exertion of digging deep against windblown waters. Whoever said: “to paddle 100 miles in a canoe, you are a child of nature,” got it right. Yes, there were times when the winds ambushed the waves, whipping up whitecaps into such a frenzy that every armaching reach into the water was tenacity personified. Mostly, though, the majesty of this inaccessible landscape left us so awestruck, our paddles froze in mid stroke: drifting down reededged, crystal clear rivers, crossing pools laden with lilies, inhaling the sweet scent of fallen pine needles baking in the sun, or becoming one with the silent flight of a bald eagle as it cast its long shadow across the granite bluff. Such are the bragging rights of adventurous spirits and the rewards of discovering a part of Canada that still resonates with such raw beauty it will forever inspire the heart of your inner pioneer.

NEW ZEALAND — New Zealand has been given a big “thumbs up” by two of Bollywood’s hottest stars. Sonam Kapoor and Imran Khan feature in Bollywood’s latest big budget production, I Hate Luv Storys, which was partly shot in Queenstown and premieres this week. The ty pical Bollywood movie is full of dance sequences, music and love, and both stars have said that their New Zealand experience was one they would never forget. “I’ve travelled the world but I’d never been to New Zealand before,” Kapoor says in the publicity. “The landscape is spectacular and very diverse. We drive short distances and the dramatic scenery changes from steep mountains and lakes to green fields and river canyons. The people are extremely warm and friendly. And I love the food.” Director Punit

EXTENDED The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) came into effect on July 1, increasing the cost of funerals by 7%. In many cases, this amounts to an increase of $500 or more. While we assisted hundreds of families with their prearrangements prior to the July 1 deadline, many others were unable to complete their plans before the HST became effective. We’re happy to announce that DignityTM Memorial funeral homes are extending the pre-HST savings - but only for a limited time. By planning ahead you will: • Relieve your family of the emotional and financial burden an unplanned funeral can cause • Prevent emotional overspending • Lock in prices at today’s rate Full payment is not required to qualify for the savings.
