Senior thwarts theft
ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Broken strap or not, the 81-year-old Vernon woman was not giving up her purse to a would-be robber without a battle. The woman was walking in the 3800 block of 33rd Street Saturday shortly before 10 a.m. when a man in his 20s with red hair, wearing a dark hoodie and blue jeans, approached and tried to take her purse. “During the struggle, the chain or strap from the purse broke but the victim held on,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “With the help of her walker, she was able to fight off the suspect, who gave up and ran away.” The suspect was not found by police. The woman was not injured in the incident. “It’s not one of the things we recommend doing in a case like this, however, this victim was able to hold on to her purse and not get hurt,” said Molendyk.

Ella Donaldson, six, enjoys the late afternoon sunshine by the fountain in Civic Square while taking part in the weekly free concert called Civic Sounds, which run on Thursdays.
The B.C. Coroners Service has confirmed the body pulled from the Shuswap River near Enderby July 13 is that of a missing Salmon Arm rafter. The victim has been identified through the use of dental records as Bradley Paul Foubert, 20, who went missing in the river near the Mabel Lake Resort while rafting with a friend on June 28. The official cause of Foubert’s death has not been released by the coroners office, which is continuing to investigate. Foubert’s body was found in a logjam by Vernon Search and Rescue personnel about 3.3-kilometres downstream from the Ashton Creek Bridge just before noon on July 13. Foubert and a friend had been out rafting and were making their second run on the river at around 3 p.m. June 28 when they were upset in the river’s fast-rushing current and knocked off their rafts. The friend was able to make it to shore while Foubert was last seen in the river calling for help. Neither rafter was wearing a life jacket.

News Concert grows funds for trees W JESSICA SCHWITEK
hen she realized she was unhappy about what was going on around her, eight-year-old Jade Freeman leapt into action. During a walk in a park, her mom told her that they had to cut down the pine tree in their front yard due to pine beetle infestation. It was at that moment, two years ago, that Freeman decided to devote her time to planting trees in her community. Now, at age 10, Freeman has planted countless trees in parks, community gardens and schools through her non-profit Trees Make a Difference. She has planted 600 trees this spring alone, 100 of which were at Fintry Provincial Park. She also finds other planting projects here and there. â€œMy dad works on a farm, and they had to cut trees down to make a reservoir,â€? said Freeman. So she decided to plant a new batch of trees around the edge of the reservoir. Freemanâ€™s tireless efforts to create a greener community were recognized by the city this year. She was the recipient of the 2010 Youth Sustainability Award presented by the City of Vernon. â€œWe didnâ€™t know anything about them, so it was quite a surprise,â€? said Freemanâ€™s mother, Jenny Freeman. The award is given out to the youth in the community who made an outstanding contribution, either with school or community programs, or through his or her own initiatives. And Freeman has excelled with her own initiative. Trees Make a Difference has been operating for two years now, and she plans to keep it going for as long as she can. â€œIâ€™m going to keep doing it until Iâ€™m too old to plant trees anymore,â€?
â€œIâ€™m going to keep doing it until Iâ€™m too old to plant trees anymore.â€? â€” Jade Freeman
she said. And when that happens she will find someone else to do it, said her mother. Trees Make a Difference is run entirely through donations and fundraisers. Freeman receives cash or trees from individuals or businesses. This summer, Freeman decided to put on a concert to raise money for her non-profit. The Cat and the Fiddle band will be entertaining at the charity concert Sunday, all the proceeds of which will go to the purchase of trees for Freeman to plant in the coming year. A partially grown tree, between three and four metres tall and with a base diameter of 10 centimetres, can cost between $300 and $400. And to prevent vandalism of newly planted trees, especially at schools, Freeman has to plant a tree of this size. Vandalism of trees is a problem for the organization, and it is an issue that Trees Make a Difference hopes to tackle soon. Freeman and her mother would like to start an initiative at local schools where they go in and talk about why it is important not to vandalize trees. It would be similar to anti-bullying programs, but would promote the idea â€œdonâ€™t bully trees.â€? They are hoping to start with that in the coming school year. Freemanâ€™s concert will be held at the Mackie Lake House on Sunday, at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10 for adults, free for kids five and under, and are available through Freeman at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ten-year-old Jade Freeman, winner of the City of Vernonâ€™s Youth Sustainability Award for 2010, is organizing a fundraising concert to support her nonprofit, Trees Make a Difference.

Grass fire sparks home evacuations ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Mother Nature is to blame for a handful of Spallumcheen residents being issued evacuation orders from their homes Sunday night. An intense storm that blew through the area around 9 p.m. sparked a grass fire near the Grandview Flats/ Page Road area. Winds gusting up to 35 knots caused the fire to begin to spread rapidly. “The storm front that came through picked up some debris that landed on the Hydro lines and caused a short on the lines,” said Township of Spallumcheen fire inspector Alastair Crick. “One of the Hydro lines did come down, we investigated with Hydro and we ended up with a chickenor-the-egg type situation: was it the burning debris on the Hydro lines which dropped down to start the grass fire, or was it the Hydro line? That remains under investigation.” The winds slowed down as quickly as they came, allowing fire crews from Armstrong-Spallumcheen and Coldstream to contain the fire to .2 hectares. An evacuation of approximately 10 residences were ordered, and an essential social services was opened at the Centennial Theatre in Armstrong, though only three people registered. The rest stayed on the periphery of the fire. “That’s their prerogative, we can’t force them to leave,” said Crick. Everybody was allowed back to their residences shortly after midnight. RCMP said that a mother and daughter had been reported to have been trapped in a shed when the fire started, but they were able to get out of the building and run to a neighbour’s home. Nobody was injured in the grass

Power lines were also reported down in Enderby, the BX and Lavington, and one woman was stuck in an elevator for more than an hour at Silver Star due to a power outage. She was uninjured. B.C. Forest Service crews, meanwhile, responded to 16 new lightningcaused fires since Sunday’s storm in the Kamloops Fire Centre, which includes the North Okanagan. Fast action by firefighters, supported by airtankers, heavy equipment and helicopters water-bucketing, helped keep all of the new fire starts at less than one hectare in size. The fire danger rating is currently high in the majority of the fire centre, with pockets of extreme in Vernon and Clearwater. All open burning is currently prohibited within the Kamloops Fire Centre, including fireworks or burning barrels of any size or description. This ban does not prohibit campfires that are a half-metre high by a halfmetre wide or smaller, or cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. People lighting a campfire must maintain a fireguard by removing flammable debris from the campfire area, and must have a hand tool or at least eight litres of water nearby to properly extinguish the campfire. Due to drought-like conditions, lightning fires may be burning underground for weeks and become visible with daytime heating. The general public can be of assistance by reporting any suspected wildfires by calling *5555 on your cell phone or toll free 1-800-663-5555.
Assault suspects released ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Two suspects wanted in connection with a pair of assaults Friday morning were in RCMP custody on the weekend. However, because both victims in the separate attack have been less than fully cooperative with RCMP, the suspects have been released. RCMP responded to assaults Friday before 9 a.m. in the 3700 block of 30th Avenue and 3300 block of Centennial Drive. “The two suspects wanted in connection with Friday’s assaults were arrested Saturday at a home in the 2200 block of 30th Avenue,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk, adding it was a tip from the public that led them to the
home. “The assaults are still under investigation, but because both of the victims are not co-operating with police, we have been unable to determine if charges will be laid.” Both victims were taken to hospital following the attacks. One had lacerations and a broken nose. “Assault causing bodily harm would be an appropriate charge in this case,” said Molendyk. “But until we get some co-operation, we’re unable to lay any charges.” The attack on 30th Avenue happened inside a residence while the assault on Centennial Drive took place on the street. Molendyk said there are strong indications that the assaults are drug related.

Oil talk gushing
t’s been a great week for our oceans. Just as Coast Salish tribal leaders from B.C. and Washington gathered here to celebrate the official naming of the Salish Sea, oilfield engineers succeeded in capping the offshore well blowout in the Gulf of Mexico. The three-month nightmare of the BP oil platform disaster has highlighted the ignorance and hypocrisy that accompanies debate about oil here in B.C. Superannuated hippies have controlled the urban discourse, just as they did the logging debate 20 years ago. They have long propagated the fantasy that there is no oil production or transport in B.C. and that a mythical “moratorium” has protected our fragile coastTom Fletcher line from oil-mad Texans and Albertans, ever since truly intelligent, sensitive human life evolved here in the 1960s. This received wisdom was illustrated in the legislature’s final days this spring, when the opposition seized on a tiny seeping fuel oil leak discovered at the Chevron refinery on Burrard Inlet at Burnaby, and played to the public horror over the BP disaster far to the south. “This is the premier who wants to end the 40-year moratorium on supertankers on our coast,” shouted NDP environment critic Rob Fleming. “That’s the kind of environmentalist he is.” This is nonsense refined to its purest form. There is a federal moratorium on offshore drilling along B.C.’s West Coast, as there is off California’s coast, but there is no moratorium on tanker traffic and there never has been. There is an exclusion agreement between the Canadian and U.S. federal governments that tankers carrying Alaska crude will not use the Inside Passage when they bring it down to a cluster of refineries in Washington State.

Shell and Tesoro Corp. share a refinery complex at March Point, just outside of Anacortes, Wash., a short ferry ride from B.C. Some of the tankers negotiate the Strait of Juan de Fuca around the tip of Vancouver Island and continue past Anacortes, up to Blaine, just south of the B.C. border. Here BP operates the Cherry Point refinery, Washington’s largest and the destination of the Exxon Valdez on that fateful night in 1989. On the way between the islands of southern B.C. and Washington, these tankers pass through Rosario Strait, a gap narrower than the Inside Passage, or anything encountered by tankers that already carry light petroleum products into Kitimat. Once the Gulf of Mexico blowout was the talk of Lotus Land coffee shops, it wasn’t long before Vancouver city council determined that there is in fact oil tanker traffic right into the city. First a refinery is discovered in Burnaby, and then it turns out Kinder Morgan’s pipeline is loading ships too! Council immediately launched a task force to assess the appalling risks of oil transport that has proceeded safely for decades while council studied things like a dead stump in Stanley Park. It turns out even “tar sands” oil is shipped out of Vancouver. No doubt the city’s latte-sippers would be happier if this unsightly business moved up to Kitimat. Enter Michael Ignatieff, the latest leader of the party that declared Canada a peacekeeping nation. (Again, this assumes history began in the 1960s.) Ignatieff’s nuanced position on oil exports is that no pipeline should be built to convey Alberta crude to Kitimat. Condensate can continue to go into Kitimat by ship and to Alberta by rail, where it is used to dilute heavy oil. The resulting crude can go by pipeline to Vancouver, where tankers weave through the island-dotted arteries of B.C.’s urban heart. Call it the “screw Kitimat” policy. Or just plain screwy. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. firstname.lastname@example.org
The final cost of the 2010 Winter Olympics is in. B.C. taxpayers shelled out $925 million for the opportunity to hold the international event here. As we’ve come to expect, that tally is considerably higher than the original government estimate of $600 million. Pushing up the total were $165 million in additional security costs, and another $160 million spent to “maximize the potential benefit” of hosting the Olympics. Predictably, the critics of the Games are howling. And the question that has been debated for years remains: Was it all worth it? There are some tangible benefits. Construction of nearly $500 million worth of Olympic venues created an estimated 8,500 to 10,000 jobs. Suppliers and service businesses also cashed in. And those facilities, such as the ice skating oval in Richmond, remain to serve the communities in which they were built. So do other major infrastructure projects fast-tracked for the Olympics, such as the Sea to Sky Highway, Canada Line and the Vancouver Convention Centre. They represented another $4 billion in public investment, with all the jobs and economic spin-offs associated with them. What is harder to gauge is the long-term impact. Do a few weeks on the world stage translate into increased tourism, and business investment years down the road? Several economic studies in cities that hosted previous Games suggest those projections are often over-optimistic, and in some cases, conclusive data is simply untraceable. It’s likely we will never know with certainty whether this mega-event will ever provide an appreciable return on the nearly $1 billion invested. But it was a great party... — Black Press

A vision for Polson Park
know that I have broached this subject before but I must add some new perspectives. I have walked Polson Park at different times for an hour over the last two summers, and believe that I have valuable insight into the dynamics and demographics of the area. So, the rose garden is a unique area off to the side for those who wish to enjoy the flowers in serenity and away from the general activity. The Japanese Garden only needs some sprucing up, and for sure leave the trails for the kids to play in, and the gazebo, where much to the chagrin of older adults, is a place for young lovers to meet. The adult gym should be located next to the kids playground where parents can HST PETITION This is just to thank all the fight-the-HST petition canvassers/signers for the creation of the best, biggest, brightest example of bottomto-top, grassroots, majority democracy in the history of this province. You have successfully achieved what was supposed to be unachievable by signing up 10 per cent of voters in every provincial riding. Another achievement is that in many areas you have surpassed the number of voters taken to even elect each of the representatives in the last election. All of this works towards making them really righteously ripe for any future recalls/resignations campaigns for their personal parts in all this bad politics.

The whole East Hill was clay from our house up to 18th. It seemed inappropriate to me to build any school there. When VSS was finally built there appeared cracks in the wall the very next year. H.D. (Bart) Bartholomew FISHING FOREVER The Lumby Wildlife and Vernon Fish and Game Club held their Fishing Forever event promoted by the B.C. Wildlife Federation recently at Mabel Lake. A 56-passenger bus was loaded to the brim with seniors and challenged people from Vernon and Lumby. Hamburgers and hotdogs were barbecued for approxi-
mately 80 people and seven big pots of coffee were drunk. The rain stopped for us and several fish were caught. A fun day was had by all and many thank yous expressed as the bus and vans were loaded up again at 3 p.m. A big thank-you goes out to the very accommodating B.C. Parks and a very nice bus driver, and all of the Mabel Lake residents who provided boat rides and all the members and volunteers who were there to help rig fishing lines and do the cooking. Pete Aussen MLA PRIORITIES The article that covered half of a recent front page of The Morning Star lets us know about two MLAs in B.C. One from Peace River South, Blair Lekstrom, and an energy minister no less, quit and left the Liberal cabinet saying, "My first priority is my constituents." He goes on to say that the HST would benefit the province but the people of B.C. which includes the Peace River South riding are
installed right away. The water park is often under utilized and is fine the way it is, save taxpayers money. The oval is really under used, so the against the HST. Here in Vernon Monashee riding we have an MLA, Eric Foster, who does not give a hoot about the 9,546 constituents who have signed the anti-HST petition, that's 21.1 per cent of the registered voters. The 9,546 people who have so far signed the antiHST petition are making a big statement of their displeasure about the tax that was not even mentioned during the 2009 election. So much for the transparency in Victoria's legislature building. So Mr. Eric Foster, as I mentioned during our halfhour meeting, your staff so graciously allowed for us to meet, the time will come when people who put you in office will again decide your worth to them. Yukon Eric Holopainen SNAKES BITTEN I am somewhat surprised that Vernon city council would spend taxpayers dollars on yet another ugly billboard at the entrance to our city advertising a commercial enterprise, namely the
runner/walkers can go on the 1.1km roadway. Speaking of the roadway, it must be left open, not only for the frail, but for the people who escape there to eat lunches or read in the shade in peace and quiet. Something that wouldn't happen in a hot parking lot. Also, and sorry Mr. Gilroy, ducks and pigeons are an integral part of any city park. Furthermore, the grandstand must be made of timbers in keeping with the aesthetics of the whole park. Last but not least, dismantle the tent city at the end of the park. It is a den of drug dealers and couriers that race through the park throughout the day. Barb Johnston
Vernon Vipers. Don't we have enough of that with the federal and provincial politicians and their signage all over the place advertising their spending of our money? Maybe they should spend the billboard money on cleaning up the entrance to the city, all the garbage on the side of the road and the weeds in the brick traffic dividers. Michael O'Fallon THANKS BUT... I would like to thank the police for their road stops. It is quite reassuring knowing that the police force is showing Vernonites that they are out there. I would like to suggest that they improve the way they talk to the public. It would be nice to see an occasional smile and polite greeting when stopping people. Most of us are law-abiding citizens and are more than glad to comply with law enforcement. Maybe you could work on friendly PR. Alice Summerland

The Vernon aerie of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles is starting a fundraising campaign for a Disaster Relief Trailer, similar to this one, operated by the Chemainus-Crofton and Ladysmith branches.
Eagles to begin trailer campaign Morning Star Staff
The Vernon aerie of the Fraternal Order of the Eagles is starting a fundraising campaign for a Disaster Relief Trailer, beginning with a barbecue, Sunday, Aug. 8 at the Eagles Hall at 5101 25th Avenue. The aerie has a fundraising goal of $20,000, which will be used to outfit a 53-foot trailer with enough relief items to provide for 2,000 people in cases of disaster, such as earthquakes, floods and hurricanes. “It will go anywhere there is a disaster,” said the Eagles’ Rodrick Baziw, adding it could potentially be used to help out anywhere in North America. Typical equipment stocked on the trailer would include food, water, personal hygiene items, empty sandbags, a 6,600-Watt generator, first aid equipment, blankets, shovels, axes and other emergencyrelief tools. The Eagles are looking for sponsorship for the project. Baziw says participating sponsors would have their company logos added to the trailer. Phone the Eagles at (250) 542-3003, or e-mail them at FOE3557@shaw.ca. Visit www.bcfoe.com for more information.

‘Cool adventure’ set for local grad
Morning Star Staff
Seaton grad Kayla MacGillivray is about to embark on the adventure of a lifetime. Every year about 3,000 youth aged 17 to 24 apply to go on a Canada World Youth Exchange program, and every year about 600 of them are chosen. MacGillivray is one of those 600. “I really want to explore but I want it to be safe too,” said MacGillivray. The Canada World Youth Exchange program has been around for almost three decades, and has sent more than 31,000 young people from 67 countries all over the world. There was a presentation given at MacGillivray’s high school, Seaton, about the program, and in years past a few of her friends have participated. “That’s what really got me into it,” she said. In December she filled out a pre-selection application form on the internet, and by April, after several rounds of required applications, she knew she was chosen. “The process of finding out was really long,” said MacGillivray. But the wait was definitely worth it. “It will be a really interesting experience for sure,” she said. MacGillivray’s sixmonth volunteer trip will consist of three months in Truro, Nova Scotia, and then three months in the town of Sei Gohong in the Central Kalimantan province of Indonesia. “I would never have even thought about going to Indonesia,” she said. But since learning of her destination she has done extensive research on the country and is very happy with the program’s decision to send her there. But right from the start she knew she wanted to go East. “I was so happy about Nova Scotia,” she said. The theme of her
JESSICA SCHWITEK/MORNING STAR
Seaton Secondary grad Kayla MacGillivray is going on a six-month Canada World Youth Exchange program in September. She will spend three months volunteering in Nova Scotia, then three months in Indonesia. trip is “health.” So much of the volunteer work she does in both Canada and Indonesia will be centred around health. The issue that MacGillivray wants to explore and help with is water quality and treatment. “The water treatment there (Indonesia)
is so poor. It causes so many diseases and health problems,” she said. The prospect of having an adventure and getting the opportunity to help people at the same time is what really hooked MacGillivray on the trip. A l t h o u g h MacGillivray plans on
attending university in the fall of 2011 after she gets back, she isn’t sure what she wants to study, and right now all she can think about is the trip. “I’m just all over the place,” she said. Canada World Youth Exchange recommends that their participants raise the entire $2,800 for the trip, and MacGillivray is almost there. “People have been really generous,” she said. Friends, family and even distant relatives have given her almost $2,000 so far. She has $820 to go, and right now she is going around to local businesses requesting donations. Gold’N Time Jewellery has already contributed. But on Sept. 27, one way or another, MacGillivray will be leaving home for six months for the first time in her life. “We’re going to celebrate Christmas and my birthday before I leave,” said MacGillivray. She wants to make sure all the big events are covered before she goes because the communication situation in Indonesia is unknown. She doesn’t even know if she will have Internet access, so it will be quite
a change for 18-yearold MacGillivray. “It’ll be kinda weird,” she said. But she is excited about the idea of writing letters. “I just think letters are so cute.” MacGillivray has not done a lot of international travel in her life. “I’ve just been to Ohio and Michigan,” she said. So she is very excited about traveling to the other side of the world. “It will just be a really cool adventure.”

EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Embracing the earth through song KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Kermit the Frog once sang how it’s not easy being green. The Sesame Street and Muppet Show icon may have been referring to his melancholy mood at the time, but being green has a whole new meaning now. On her new CD, local entertainer Kiki the Eco Elf sings how it is now time for everyone to go green, just like her hair. As Kiki explains it, going green is not when you have eaten a bizarre, strange fruit and your skin is turning green, or that you feel really sick to your stomach and all the colour is draining from your face. “Go green simply means making decisions based on what is best for the environment and the planet,” she explains. The musician behind the neon shock of green hair, deep purple dress, rainbow stockings and big grin (who prefers to go by her character’s name for this article) is a new arrival to Vernon and has since been entertaining children and their families while raising awareness for environmental issues and ecological sustainability. A busy little elf, not only is Kiki performing to children at schools, libraries, community events, festivals, fairs and birthday parties, she is the local organizer of the only Canadian Green Power Rally being held throughout the U.S. July 31 by the Environmental Media Northwest and eco-hero Captain Ozone. “This is a rally promoting renewable energy, which is happening across North America,” she said. “We are promoting the mes-
sage to use sun, wind, water and geothermal to meet our needs.” Part clown, part educator, Kiki has created numerous songs, rhymes, puppet plays, games and stories about the environment. “My big mission is to be in the school system. Kids are our future. I don’t think adults always get it. Kids can teach their parents. It’s a neat approach and they feel empowered,” she said.
“Nature is the best way to rip kids away from the screen.” — Kiki the Eco Elf With her new self-titled CD, recorded in Vernon and released June 26, Kiki has evolved over the past two and a half years. “She came to me as a dream. I’ve had such a passion for the environment and am also a musician who has worked with kids all my life. I thought of how to create a job between the three things I love: kids, environment and music. I thought why not make a character out of that.” With her earthy voice that transcends genres including jazz, blues, folk and hip hop, Kiki sings about alternative energy sources, protecting valuable resources, sustainable living and the importance of protecting disappearing species, but in a catchy manner that kids can relate to. “Kids react to shock value and I am competing with the TV generation, so it doesn’t hurt to be bright,
flashy, and loud,” she said. “Nature is the best way to rip kids away from the screen. If kids are not exposed to nature, they are unable to relate to the environment. It needs to be protected and I like to use a simple, powerful, innovative, fresh and clear objective through my songs.” On her CD, Kiki explains the word environment and what it means (on the song What is the Environment), singing about the earth, water, air, plants and animals. “They are all connected and that’s the big message,” she said, explaining how each “category” receives its own song. “I talk about how it’s important to be organic with gardening. For example I talk about earth in the sense that everything comes from dirt (On the Organic Farm), and then I hit the three Rs (Go Green), which I want to change to reduce, reduce, reduce as recycling still takes energy, power and time. Although it’s better than going to the landfill, it’s still better if we reduce.” Conserving energy is tackled in the song, Let’s Treat the Earth Like A Friend, where Kiki encourages all to turn off the lights, and the tap. “I ask how would you treat your friend. Would you pour gasoline and oil on them?” she said. Her live show also features a recycling game and help from some of her animal friends –– Ollie the orca, Trixie the Siberian tiger and Edward the elephant –– and although she is mainly focused on her musical performance, she can also be found face painting or clowning at various events. “I love clowning, but this is not
Green warrior Kiki the Eco Elf is teaching children to care about their planet. just about clowning. Clowning is a sideline,” she said. “I also love face painting and as a visual artist, I love skin as a canvas. It’s very challenging.” Kiki performs at the Vernon library Friday at 10:30 a.m., the Lumby library July 29 at 10 a.m. and the Enderby library Aug. 11 at 10:30 a.m. She is also scheduled to perform as part of the KidZone stage at the Komasket Music Festival, July
30 to Aug. 1, and the Rarearth Music Festival, Aug. 6 to 8, where she will host the family entertainment and conduct workshops such as dumpster diving drumming. The local Green Power Rally July 31 starts at 2 p.m. in front of the Vernon library with a parade through town. More information is available at www.greenpowerrally.org or call Kiki at 250-549-1234.
Lumby festival to bring awareness about local wild salmon Morning Star Staff
A tasty salmon barbecue, live music and local arts and crafts are just some of the highlights of a music festival planned this weekend at the Freedom Flight Park in Lumby. All proceeds from the 2010 festival, which is expected to become an annual event, will go to support local salmon spawning habitat renewal efforts. The festival was founded and designed to bring awareness to local issues and create opportunities for community enhancement and tourism, said event organizer and founder Randy Rauck of Viva Promotions.
Let’s Make Cancer History! Please give generously. Canadian Cancer Society Société canadienne du cancer
“This year, we’re paying tribute to the salmon that spawn in the streams surrounding Lumby and are increasingly being threatened,” he said. “For more than 80 years, the lack of a fish ladder at the Wilsey Dam near Lumby has prevented chinook, sockeye, and coho stocks from using at least 45 kilometres of former excellent spawning and rearing habitats on the middle of Shuswap and Cherry Creek. “The village’s salmon river walk is one example of what can be done locally to protect and benefit the wild salmon.” In addition to the Saturday night wild
salmon feast, the community music festival will feature a variety of bands and vendors primarily from within a 100-mile local area. Friday night entertainment includes The Young’Uns, Ranger Kaine Band, Honeyslide and The Mabel Lickers. Saturday features Cat Wells and her smokin’ hot blues band, Jodi Pederson, Cross Fire, Modern Folk, Orry’s Road and others. Sunday is a family day by donation and features Lani, LiLi and Rose and a bluegrass/ country/folk jam An outdoor movie is also planned for later in the evening. The Lumby chamber of commerce will

Weâ€™ve met some great new friends. Maybe weâ€™ve even fallen in love. But being the proud music junkies we are, weâ€™ve found that we can have exactly what we want, whenever we want, and anywhere we want it. We, the hounds that follow those gas guzzling V8s, filled with some old equipment and some banged-up guitars, and even a few banged-up musicians, will sleep 10 to a tent if we have to, wait five hours for a ferry, but will follow that music. We love the music. Itâ€™s all about the music and itâ€™s definitely all about the fun. From the beginning of time, festivals create the environment for feasts and celebrations, and we definitely eat, drink and be merry every time we go to one. But have you stopped to think about what just saying the word does to you? Itâ€™s almost an emotional thing which can unlock hidden memories; where a song youâ€™ve heard or a lingering scent can take you directly back in time to that vivid memory. I can remember as a kid driving to Vancouver (in a van, of course; being a hippy was just way too much fun then) heading off to a Led Zeppelin concert â€“â€“ to this day, the smell of patchouli makes me want to break out in song with Ramble On or Whole Lotta Love â€“â€“ but the best thing of all, those songs or that scent bring back a flood of memories that makes me smile and gets me

Exposing guilt-ridden New Yorkers JIM ELDERTON Vernon Film Society
Please Give, writer/director Nicole Holofcener’s latest film, deals with the dilemma of having money and feeling guilty about it. During a time of economic hardship this timely slice-of-life comedy reflects and satirizes the comfortablyoff middle class. It’s about a group of New Yorkers and the acquisition of their socalled needs: the right jeans, a bigger apartment, a younger woman, a meaningful friendship. And like most of Holofcener’s movies, it’s a combination of comedy and tragedy. Kate (Catherine Keener) and her husband Alex (Oliver Platt) run a vintage furniture store in a trendy Manhattan neighbourhood. Much of their stock comes from the homes of dead people. They buy old furniture from the impatient adult children who see their parents’ hoard-
ed belongings as trash. Kate feels doubly guilty –– first for buying the furniture for next to nothing, then for re-selling it at high prices. In fact, Kate’s a bundle of guilt. She’s forever giving cash to homeless people, and she endlessly searches for just the right volunteer position. Her need to do good provides some of the blackest humour in this very dark comedy. As someone who can always see the tragic side of things, Kate thrives on empathy. Alas, her good intentions frequently misfire. Outside a restaurant she hands a black man $20, when in fact he’s merely waiting for a table. She gives her Chanel lipstick to the transvestite on the corner. Mentally handicapped people upset her so much they end up comforting her instead. Living next to Kate is a cranky old lady (Ann Guilbert from The Dick Van Dyke Show) cared for by her granddaughters (Amanda Peet and
Rebecca Hall). But the two families have a pretty bizarre relationship: Kate had earlier managed to purchase the old woman’s apartment, thus in the event of her death, Kate can expand her living space. Holofcener is one of the few writer/directors who cares deeply about modern women’s hectic lives and the daily trials they face. Please Give is the fourth in her series of funnytragic movies that dissect complex social dynamics and everyday neuroses. She learned this from a master when entering the film industry –– as the apprentice editor on Woody Allen’s Hannah and Her Sisters. “It sounds like a better job than it was,” said Holofcener. “All I did was synchronize the dailies and hold screenings for Woody Allen and some of the cast. The editor fired me before she met me! (My stepdad was the producer on the film and she resented being told who to hire.)
“I also realized this was about a female character making her apartment bigger. I guess these are issues that are very permanent in my life –– not that I dwell on them –– but I see a disparity between my friends’ income and mine, and it’s hard for me to go with the flow.” Please Give shows Monday at the Vernon Towne Cinema at 6 and 8:30 p.m. Advance tickets are at the Towne and the Bean Scene.
I was really unhappy that it happened, but I was the first person to see all the footage and that was thrilling.” Asked about writing neurotic characters, she said: “I’ll never write an un-neurotic character! These are the people that come out of my head, or the people that I know and am inspired by. If I’m writing about someone who’s afraid to go get a job interview... then she is neurotic and messed up. “These are women that are dealing with life’s smaller hurdles –– not necessarily life-or-death hurdles –– and that’s when you get into someone’s personality. I never really think about whether they’re neurotic.” And on writing about money and guilt: “After I finished the script I realized what the film was about! That’s when I said, ‘Oh, I guess this is still interesting to me.’ I don’t plan what I’m going to write about. I write about what’s important to me, and then I see it later.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) It might take far greater discipline than usual to finish what you start today. If you don’t want to leave a mess in your wake, you had better stay on top of whatever you take on.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Generally you are one who nearly always thinks for yourself, but today this splendid quality won’t be visible. Although you rarely do so, you will let bias influence your opinions at this time.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Generally, you’re pretty careful about what you say about others, but today some flippant negative comments could be taken more seriously than usual. Mean what you say and say only what you mean.
Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once.
PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Success in a collective situation will not be enhanced by a large number of participants today. Only people with talent and know-how will be able to pull off what everybody is hoping.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Although there are plenty of substantial material opportunities hovering about you today, you will need a sharp eye to detect them. Unless you are seriously looking for them, you could easily miss them. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Those in your charge will easily be able to discern whether you are being tough or just pretending when you give them orders today. You’ll have to really mean it for your dictates are to be followed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Overhearing a disclosure that is meant to be confidential could put you on track to something quite beneficial if you are sharp enough to pick up on it and know how to constructively use it. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Prompting from an acquaintance could cause you to behave in an abrasive manner to someone who doesn’t really deserve it. Don’t be hoodwinked into believing what isn’t true.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Check to see if it is a selfish reason that is causing you to step out of character. Don’t make one set of rules for yourself, while making an entirely different set for everybody else. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Generally speaking you are noticed wherever you go, regardless of what you are doing or who you are with, so make sure the impression you make today isn’t a negative one.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ﬂashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) If an ambitious plan you’ve been contemplating is prematurely exposed today, it could easily weaken your position. Guard your important intentions more carefully.

If you participate, you will be the one who ends up looking like the perpetrator.

Bridge by Phillip Alder David Lloyd George, the only Welshman to become prime minister of Great Britain, said, “Don’t be afraid to take a big step if one is indicated. You can’t cross a chasm in two small jumps.” We are looking at preemptive jump overcalls. With a decent seven-card suit and 5-10 high-card points, you usually make a double-jump overcall. (However, if your suit is a minor and the double-jump would carry you past three no-trump, it might be better to make a single jump. Try to sense if the responder has a strong hand.) In this deal, North overcalls one club with three diamonds. This gives South a problem. He ought to bid
ﬁve diamonds, because if North has king-queenjack-seventh of diamonds and out, that hand will be worth one trick in no-trump and six tricks in diamonds. Here, though, that would unluckily fail. Let’s assume South converts to three notrump. How should South plan the play after West leads the club queen? South has six top tricks: one spade, one heart, two diamonds and two clubs. It looks easy to take the ﬁrst trick and to play a diamond to dummy’s jack. Since there are only 15 high-card points missing, the ﬁnesse will probably work. And even if it loses, declarer still gets six diamond tricks. Here, though, this
play costs the contract. Instead, South should play a diamond to dummy’s eight. That guarantees the contract (unless East has all four diamonds). Here, when the ﬁnesse wins, declarer can play diamonds without loss and take 12 tricks if he endplays West at the end.

Lottery’s online gambling site busts due to traffic TOM FLETCHER Black Press
Website glitches rather than windfall revenues marked the first day of B.C.’s venture into regulated online gambling. The B.C. Lottery Corporation’s new portal PlayNow.com crashed on opening day of the experiment and remained offline
overnight and into Friday morning. A BCLC spokesperson said the outage was related to high traffic generated by the newly expanded betting limit and games. With new casino games and a limit bumped up to $9,999, the site racked up 150 new registrants and a surge of interest from the 135,000
people already registered to play BCLC lotteries and games online. Technicians added new hardware Friday to handle the traffic. The B.C. government caused an uproar when it revealed this spring that it would be the first jurisdiction in North America to offer an authorized alternative to
unregulated Internet casinos. Registered B.C. residents can bet up to $9,999 on casino games at the B.C. Lottery Corp. website, which also provides online access to lottery games and numbers. Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman says B.C. residents are now spending $100 mil-
lion a year on Internet gambling sites, and he makes no apologies for letting the lottery corporation invest $325 million this year to protect its $1 billion revenue stream from lotteries and casinos. The government has seen gambling in B.C. transform in recent years, with bingo halls giving way to Las Vegas-
style slots and table games to televised poker tournaments and now to online casinos. NDP social development critic Shane Simpson noted the government’s sudden entry into online gambling came in the same budget that cuts gambling enforcement and addiction treatment by 10 per cent.

It was special teams night for the Armstrong Shamrocks Monday at Nor-Val Sport Centre. The Irish fired three powerplay goals, and added one shorthanded as they doubled the Vernon Tigers 8-4 before 300 fans in Game 1 of the Shaw Cup Senior C Lacrosse Championship semifinals. All three of the Shamrocksâ€™ man-advantage goals came in the first period, the first coming from Brett Logan who rifled in a point shot. Delaney Halifax then popped out from behind the net and scored a one-timer, and the Strohm boys, Nathan and Logan, connected on a fast break. Nathan, who earned second star, used his speed to generate numerous scoring chances. Tanner Skolrood answered for the Tigers on the powerplay, firing a hard shot under netminder Chad Pieperâ€™s arm. â€œWe were moving well on offence and creating a lot of havoc for their defenders,â€? said Shamrocksâ€™ head coach Ken McGregor. The Irish went 3-for-6 on the powerplay, while Vernon was 3-for-8. The Shamrocksâ€™ offence exploded in the second period, as first star Steven Clark notched two beautiful goals, the first coming on a hard under-handed bounce shot that found the top corner behind keeper Glen Clissold in the first minute. He picked up a rebound and fired a gorgeous behindthe-back shot five minutes later for the second. With the â€˜Rocks shorthanded, third star Rhys Parsons (3A) found a streaking Braydon Sanders coming off the bench, and Sanders buried his shot top corner to make it 6-1 â€˜Rocks after 40 minutes. â€œWe played a really strong first period, but fell apart in the second,â€? said Tigersâ€™ head coach James Hurst. â€œWe gave up those three powerplay goals and we just lost our focus, and we started to try and force things in the second.â€? After two periods, Armstrong was outshooting Vernon 38-14, and Clissold was

Armstrong Shamrocks forward Brett Logan (left) shields the ball from defender Casey Sherriff of the Vernon Tigers in Game 1 of the best-of-three Shaw Cup Senior C Lacrosse semifinals Monday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. The Shamrocks took the game 8-4. keeping his team somewhat close. Clissold finished with 38 saves, while Pieper made 18 as Armstrong outshot Vernon 45-22 overall. In the third period, the Tigers capitalized on a couple poor Armstrong penalties, with Shane Sargent and Kirk Krause each potting powerplay goals. Shamrocksâ€™ super pest Hans VanDeursen scored his first of the year on a rebound to stifle the Tigers rally. Parsons then delivered a beautiful pass to Thomas Belanger who completed the offence with a one-timer. â€œWe played really well tonight, we had some discipline problems in the third which we will have to take care... but our powerplay and short man played excellent tonight,â€? said McGregor. â€œOur offence was moving and causing all kinds of troubles for their defence which is what we like to do.â€? Considering the two teams, and despite all the powerplay goals, Hurst noted it was a relatively clean game, with no fights. The Tigers will look to avoid elimination in Game 2 tonight (7:30) at the Civic Arena. Game 3, if necessary would go Friday night (7:30) at the Nor-Val. â€œWeâ€™re under the gun and we know what we have to do. We just have to play our game for 60 minutes and weâ€™ll be fine,â€? said Hurst.

McGregor wants to see his team move the ball quicker in transition. â€œWe were wearing them down after the second period and we need to capitalize on that. We have the speed and skills, we just need to apply it. â€œI thought that defensively we played great tonight. Rhys Parsons played a great game, as did Devin Rodger and (Chad) Pounder. Those guys played hard, physical lacrosse tonight which is what we need from our veterans.â€? Meanwhile, in the other Shaw Cup semi, the host Kelowna Raiders brushed back the Kamloops Rattlers 9-6 in Game 1 Monday night at Memorial Arena. The Raiders took an early lead and the Rattlers were not able to solve the combination of Kelownaâ€™s stingy defence and outstanding goaltending by Cam Needham. League-leading scorer Jarrett Neigum pocketed 4+2 in the first two periods to lead the Raiders. Other Raider goals came from Jared MacLennan, Ryan Spring, Deryk McPhail, Braden Renner and Kyle MacLennan. Kamloops was led by a pair of goals from sniper Curtis McIntosh, with singles from Chris Phillips, Trent Evans, Brandon Morphy and Nathan Woldum. Game 2 of that series goes tonight in Kamloops.

Kyle Clark started the Legend offence period. Ryan Sarazin netted the lone goal in with a goal, assisted by Jay Seaton.

The Legends got other second-period offence from Barr and Barker, while North Delta managed a single goal. Willy Hanley, Cam Nelson and Hawrys handled the Legends’ third-period assault. But the win came at a cost as the Legends’ Daniel Peterson broke his collar bone in the game. Peterson showed tremendous grit just to make it to provincials as he spent weeks rehabbing a knee injury so he could play. Saturday morning, the Legends swamped Delta 10-2. North Okanagan rang up a 3-0 lead on goals by Orr, Sarazin and Barker. Goals by Barr (2), Sarazin, Hawrys and Orr made it 8-0 after 40 minutes. Barr, with his hat trick goal, and Hawrys completed the Legends’ attack.

Goals by Barker (Game MVP) and Seaton staked the Legends to a 2-1 lead going into the intermission. Hawrys, Barker, Colton Hanley and Barr scored in the second period. Hawrys netted three more goals in the third period, the first two assisted by Barker and Colton Hanley. The Legends, who finished the season at 11-1 overall, also won gold at both tournaments they entered earlier in the season. Cope thanked the commitment of the parents for getting kids to practice, and Lolly for her endless effort.
The Vernon Re/Max Tigers must be experiencing deja vu, and not in a good way. For the second straight year, the Cats fell into a 2-0 deficit in their best-of-five Thompson-Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League championship series with the Kamloops Venom. Last year, Vernon was able to orchestrate a threegame run to stun the Venom and advance to the B.C. championships. It would be a remarkable repeat, especially after the Cats’ 8-7 loss to the host Venom in double-overtime Monday night in a sauna-like Memorial Arena. Despite the loss, Tigers’ general manager Rich Zecchel liked the way Vernon battled. “Overall our team played well, our defence played exceptional. It was back-and-forth all game,” he said. “We started to break down their zone defence, we started cutting in like we were supposed to in Game 1, and we started getting quality shots.” Zecchel especially like the Tigers’ start, something that has lacked any sense of real urgency in recent games. “We showed our guts finally, and we finally got a good start. We normally start slow, but our guys came out flying. It was a good sign.” Venom head coach Doug Clark is hoping for a different outcome in 2010. "It feels a lot like it did last year at this time," he said. "We just try to keep them (players) composed and keep reminding them to believe in themselves and believe in the system." The Tigers opened the scoring with two minutes left in the first period of the second game, but Kamloops' Quinn Smith put the home team on the board with 26 seconds remaining to make it 1-1 after the first period. Vernon went up 2-1 five minutes into the middle frame, but Kamloops rookie Ben Saklofsky evened the score on the power play a short time later. The Venom then took their first lead of the night with Rob Peterson finding the back of the Vernon net to make it 3-2. The Tigers then scored two unanswered goals to take a 4-3 lead into the locker room for the second intermission.

Race fans up the stakes at Kin track Morning Star Staff
The betting was brisk Sunday afternoon at Kin Racetrack, with around 1,200 race fans generating a $24,402 handle for five horse races in week two. It was an increase of about $6,000 from the previous week. Tyler Walker started the day with a victory on Cool Shename in a four-furlong race. Carolyn
Stinn ended the day with a 6.5-furlong win aboard Polar Blue. Long shots were the flavour of the day with the triactor for the fourth race paying $789.30 for a $2 bet. The third week of race action goes Sunday at Kin, highlighted by the 117th running of the Vernon Cup. Gates open at noon, with Parade to the Post set for 1:15 p.m.
The Vernon Expos narrowly missed a berth in the gold-medal game, and settled for bronze in Pee Wee A baseball action at the Valley of the Champions Tournament last weekend in Kelowna. In the third-place game, Vernon nearly blew a 6-1 lead, but kept there best for last, scoring five runs in the fifth inning to outlast the Richmond Chuckers 12-9. Dylan Emmons tossed five solid inning for the Expos. Kyle Cuirka, making a long run to track down a ball in centre field, highlighted the Expo defence. Vernon came into the game with just eight healthy bodies – and Arron Fairbairn played admirably on a hurt leg – but they gritted out the win. “This is one of the best team efforts I have seen in a long time, getting key plays from everyone in the lineup,” said team manager Dennis Holland. The Expos came out fast Friday morning, downing the Chuckers 18-10 behind strong hitting from the entire lineup. Starter Brayden Damini pitched three good innings, and chipped in offensively with a pair doubles before giving way to relievers Tyler Droder and Noah Alleyne. Emmons and Jacob Holland also stroked doubles. Alleyne drove in the winning run as the Expos stunned the Kelowna Halos 8-7 in their second round-robin later
that day. After spotting the determined Halos a 6-1 lead after two innings, the Vernon boys clawed their way back with runs in each of the last three innings. With two out, the Expos’ Quinn Kashiwara legged out a infield single to score Holland from second base on a overthrow to first, and then Alleyne brought in Kashiwara, who had reached third on a stolen base. Fairbairn, making an all world catch in left field in the top of the last inning, ended the Halos’ chance at salvaging a win. Damini tossed all four innings as Vernon mercied the Kelowna Cubs 15-5 Saturday morning. Ty Wellman led the offence with three runs scored, and Tyler Leifke showed off his blazing speed with multiple stolen bases. In the semis, Vernon was once again forced to play catch-up, but couldn’t recover this time, falling 6-5 to Cloverdale. Trailing 5-0, the Expos staged a late rally but stranded Emmons, who represented the tying run, in their last at bat. Wellman got the start and gave way to Emmons. Vernon scored three runs in the bottom of the third inning, which highlighted this tight defensive battle. The Expos are 8-2 overall in summer ball action.

Sports Saklofsky stars in OT Continued from B2 A pair of quick goals by Kamloops to start the third put the Venom up 5-4, but Vernon answered right back with a marker of their own to make it 5-5. Saklofsky's second of the night then made it 6-5 for Kamloops, but Vernon's Craig Bigsby responded for the Tigers to keep the score tied 6-6. Regulation time settled nothing, so the two teams headed to overtime tied at six. Vernon's Ryan Landels put the Tigers up 7-6 midway through the 10-minute extra frame, and Kamloops was forced to pull its goalie with just over a minute to play. With the extra attacker on the floor, Saklofsky scored his third of the night to force another overtime period – this time sudden death. Five minutes into the second OT, Saklofsky scored a breakaway goal to give Kamloops the win. "I was just hoping it would go in the net because I was pretty tired," Saklofsky joked after the game. "We just came out to a rough start, but we really bounced back. That's what our team's all about." Game 3 went Tuesday night at Wesbild Centre. If necessary, the fourth game would be played at Memorial Arena on Thursday, with Game 5 returning to Vernon Saturday night at Civic Arena (7:30). CHRIS BORCHERT/MORNING STAR

Bosman send Mules packing In a battle of cellar dwellers, Bosman Accounting outlasted the host Rented Mules 2-1 in Okanagan Men’s 35+ Soccer League action Monday night in Rutland. The Accountants started with a strong first 10 minutes but were then surprised by a sudden goal from the Mules. Halfway through the first half, Bosman right back Greg Sol came up the right wing and delivered a cross that central midfielder Tim Walters buried in the net. The Mules (1-13) were strong in the remainder of the first half, but keeper Guy Paulsen had some good saves. The Bosman boys, who improved to 2-11-1, focused on staying organized in the second half and it paid off 15 minutes when Wes Vanderveen noticed the Mules’ keeper was out of position and curled a ball into the top right corner from 20 yards out. Shorty after, Vanderveen received his second yellow card of the night and was sent off, leaving the accountants with 10 men for the last quarter of the game. Paulsen bailed out his team with a great save, deflecting a point-blank Mules shot. Bosman got stellar performances by defenders Mike Gilman and Ben Goulard and Man of the Match Paulsen.

Predator Ridge’s Chris McEachran-Law took full advantage of his home-course knowledge and fired a solid 1-under-par 71 to lead the Predator Team to an impressive 16 overall points in the inaugural Vernon City Junior Inter-club Monday afternoon. Played under blue skies and premium course conditions at all Vernon-area golf courses, junior golfers from Vernon, Hillview, Spallumcheen and Predator showcased some fine play. For McEachran-Law, 15, his steady inter-club play will serve as a great warm-up as he heads to the B.C. Summer Games, starting Thursday in Langley. There was a tight race for second place coming into the final round-robin, with the Vernon Team
holding a one-point lead on Spall. Strong play by Spall's Sheldon Kubbernus, with a 76, helped his team to a 3.5 point total Monday to share second place. Hillview was fourth with two points. “Shannon Glenesk, head professional at the Vernon Golf & Country Club, spearheaded the Inter-club junior golf initiative, and by all accounts the inaugural event was a huge success,” said Predator head pro Scott Allan. “Junior golfers in the Okanagan region are very active on the local and regional golf scene, and events such as this provide some fantastic opportunities for juniors to enjoy some competitive golf and interact with other local juniors from the area.”

Twenty of the Harwood school student students went on Cameron Fraser-Monroe with his to the Okanagan winning project, Fact or Fiction? Regional Heritage Fair in Kelowna and four projects from Vernon students were selected for the prize of a trip to the Provincial Heritage Fair in Barkerville June 30 to July 4. Corey Anderson, 10, did his project on Juno Beach. The Grade 6 student at Silver Star elementary school did a presentation showing a model of how the area would have looked just before the June 6, 1944 D-Day attack where Canadians played a major part in the battle that was the beginning of defeating the German army and ending the Second World War in Europe. He and his partner in the project, Liam Wyatt-Scott, also made a display of information and photographs and an audio commentary. “I learned a lot about history. It’s so fascinating how the Canadians fought so that we could all be here today,” he said. Gavin Donald, 11, also a Grade 6 Silver Star student, did his project on Larry Kwong, a Vernon native who was the first person of Asian descent to play in the NHL. Kwong, who was born in Vernon in 1923, played for the Vernon Hydrophones 193941. He played for the New York Rangers 1946-48 but due to alleged prejudice played only one minute in a game in 1948. “Many people in Canada were racist then but he never gave up on his dream. He was a good player. We have to learn from history. It’s sickening that someone would not have a chance because of their race. That should not happen anymore,” said Gavin, whose great-uncle, John Baumborough, played hockey with Kwong in Vernon. Kwong, who now lives in Calgary, is coming to the Okanagan to visit the Sports Hall of Fame in Penticton this summer and has asked to meet Gavin. In the plans is a documentary on Kwong and Gavin’s project. Andie Kaneda of Okanagan Landing school with her project Jarome Iginla, and Cameron Fraser-Munroe of Harwood school with his project Fact or Fiction were also chosen to show their projects at Barkerville. “All of the students in the fair worked hard and did a great job. Some worked on their own time and some teachers did it as a classroom project. It’s successful because of the kids and the support and encouragement of the parents and teachers,” said Pat Simmons, one of the organizers of the Vernon and District Heritage Fair, and education coordinator for the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives. The Fourth Vernon and District Heritage Fair, a project of the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives, take place April 15, 2011.

All smiles as they Lap the Lake Morning Star Staff
A record number of entries participated in this season’s combined Lap the Lake and Corporate Challenge event at Vernon Rowing and Paddling Centre last month at Swan Lake. “This weekend is the major fundraiser for a free rowing program, Dynamic Opportunities for Youth, provided to at-risk youth in Vernon,” said Lisa George, with the centre. “Proceeds from the event, combined with generous funding support provided by the Hamber Foundation, will allow VRPC to be able to create valuable opportunities for youth in our community. “Everyone who participated in the event will certainly agree that participation in team sports is extremely valuable. To be able to provide the opportunity to for local youth to experience a positive and alternative environment is extremely rewarding.” The Community Corporate Team Challenge is an important part of this event. Teams from Kal Tire and Davidson Lawyers raced the four km course after

Rowers take part in Lap the Lake and Corporate Challenge at Vernon Rowing and Paddling Centre at Swan Lake: Jean Guy Doyon (front), Fran Charlebois, Rhonda Rabuck, Joanne Beach, Laura Bot, Lyse Doyon, Trish Bennett and Will Van Osch. three short weeks of training together. “Both teams looked very strong crossing the finish line and had huge smiles back at the dock,” said George. “While the team from Davidson were a shade faster and won the Challenge trophy, both teams should be
very proud of their results.” A total of 66 entries enjoyed perfect Okanagan weather and incredibly exciting racing. Visiting crews from Salmon Arm, Kamloops, 100 Mile House, Delta Deas, Nicomekl and Mazama Rowing Clubs joined Vernon’s enthu-
siastic rowing community to make this fundraiser so successful. “Many thanks to all to all the amazing volunteers who made the day run so smoothly, as well as Go Rowing and Paddling Association for their continued support of events and programs in Vernon.
Fruits beckon for baking
ere in the Okanagan, we’re smack in the middle of fruit season: nearing the end for rhubarb and strawberries, while welcoming raspberries, cherries and apricots. Yesterday my dad brought me a bucket of apricots fresh from his tree, and they are so good eating just as they are, but if you have a few extra, try the following recipes. The first is a lovely fruit torte which you can make with any seasonal fruit; the Cathi Litzenberger second a warm and delicious apricot muffin which goes well with breakfast or coffee time. Apricot Fruit Torte 2 cups graham wafer crumbs ½ cup melted butter 5 cups cut up apricots ¾ cup sugar 4 tbsp. cornstarch 1 cup water ½ pint whipping cream (1 cup) 1-1/2 cups mini marshmallows 1 large package instant vanilla pudding mix
KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM

soft and thickened. Spread over crust and cool. Whip cream, add marshmallows and spoon over cooled fruit in pan. Prepare pudding as per package instructions, and spread over top and sprinkle with reserved crumbs. Chill well before serving. Makes 12 servings. Apricot Muffins 1 cup finely diced fresh apricots 1 tsp. lemon juice ¼ cup butter or margarine ¾ cup sugar ½ tsp. vanilla 1 egg 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour 2 tsp. baking powder 1/2 tsp. salt ¼ tsp. nutmeg ¼ cup milk ¼ cup chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans) Granulated sugar for sprinkling Combine apricot pieces and lemon juice, set aside.

Tournament gets ready to tee off for the cure Morning Star Staff
Gary Cooper, Debbie Heale and Scott Boyd of RBC Dominion Securities - The Cooper Boyd Wealth Management Group present a cheque for $1,000 to the Wine Women & Woods Tee off for the Cure Committee: chairman Dee Paterson (left) and Deanna Molgove (right) at the Vernon Golf and Country Club as part of their continued support to finding a cure for breast cancer. The eighth annual Wine Women and Woods golf tournament takes place Sept. 10 and 11.

Daylilies are versatile Editor’s note: This week’s column comes from Gail and Allen Morgan, who run BX Creek Daylilies in Vernon. aylilies, the perfect perennial. They are drought-tolerant when necessary, which make them perfect for the Okanagan. They are able to survive with very little care, and come in a rainbow of colours, shapes and sizes. They adapt to various soil and Fred Lyall light conditions, and will do fine with a minimum of four hours of sun, some of the darkest will fade in the afternoon so we try to plant them so they can get a little afternoon shade. The lighter colours can endure our scorching sun all day long. While many other plants have suffered over the last two winters, daylilies will be putting on their best show ever. They range in height from 12 inches to well over four feet, with bloom from an inch to 10 inches across. Not all daylilies bloom at the same time; there are early, mid, late and very late varieties. The extra earlies started the first week of July, and the lates will go to the end of August or early September. It is thrilling to go out each morning with my camera, to see what is new.
IN THE GARDEN
You just never know what the outcome will be when you cross two different plants; you can get five to 10 seeds in a pod and all the siblings will be different, some just slightly, and some extremely so. Just look at your children or your siblings! For those who have visited us before, you will be amazed how the wet and cool spring really filled in the garden. We now have more than 900 registered cultivars in our collection, and just as many of our own hybridized seedlings. This year we had to make room for the new crop of seedlings. A few we kept, to evaluate and breed with, and the rest of the 2006 babies are potted, most in two gallon pots. They are genetically unique, just like people. We will be selling them and donating 75 per cent of the proceeds to the North Okanagan Hospice Society. You can give it a “Garden Name,”as an unregistered cultivar, to share with family and friends as the plant multiplies. This is the fifth year that we would like to invite you to enjoy our display garden on July 24 and 25 and the B.C. Day long weekend. We are at 4617 Pleasant Valley Rd. We only have one parking spot, so please park on Pleasant Valley, and walk down the alley. Please bring your camera. This year our hours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., but if you would like to come during the week, just call Gail at 250309-0528.
the tournament is extremely important, as it is the major fundraiser for this event. “Be a part of making this fundraiser a success by bringing a friend or two as well as your generous spirit for an evening out to support our fight against breast cancer.” To become involved by either participat-
ing in the golf event, donation of prizes, volunteering or sponsorship, go to www.winewomenandwoods.com. You can also make an online donation through the web site. For more information please contact Paterson at 250-545-2701 or e-mail email@example.com
OKANAGAN LAKE SUBMARINE CABLE REPLACEMENT AND OKANAGAN CENTRE SAFE HARBOUR BOAT LAUNCH CLOSURE BC Hydro is improving reliability to customers in the Central Okanagan Regional District by replacing the aging submarine cables crossing Okanagan Lake from Lake Country to Westside Road. Civil shoreline construction work will commence the week of June 28, 2010 and is expected to be completed by July 19, 2010. Minor trafﬁc delays may be experienced at the cable termination points at Okanagan Centre Road West and 4th Street in Lake Country and along Westside Road. Onshore and offshore work using barges and specialized cable laying equipment will be taking place between July 19 and August 6, 2010. To complete this work safely, it will be necessary to temporarily close the secondary outer gravel boat launch at Okanagan Centre Safe Harbour for extended periods between July 19 and August 6, 2010. The inner main Safe Harbour concrete boat launch will remain open. Please be advised that during this construction period the Safe Harbour area will be congested and parking may be limited. The work will take place within the approved Department of Fisheries and Oceans and Ministry of Environment work window for the construction activities on or adjacent to Okanagan Lake. BC Hydro recognizes that these construction activities may be an inconvenience and we will complete the work as quickly as possible.
The Wine Women and Woods committee is compassionate about finding a cure for breast cancer. They are even more pleased to announce that the funds raised are being kept locally in Vernon this year. Funds raised will be sent to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation and specifically towards a Faxitron digital scanner, a state-of-the-art X-ray machine that is a compact stand-alone unit and allows small pieces of breast tissue to be X-rayed independently of the mammography procedure. “This piece of equipment would be invaluable within Vernon Jubilee,” said Dee Paterson, committee chairman. “It will be used to diagnose in the Mammography Unit and in the operating rooms. The Faxitron will allow almost immediate assessment of whether microcalcifications have been adequately sampled.” To help the committee move closer to their goal, RBC Dominion Securities - The Cooper Boyd Wealth Management Group recently presented a cheque for $1,000. The RBC Foundation has been actively participating and donating to the Wine Women and Woods Golf Tournament since it began eight years ago. Wine Women and Woods Tee Off for the Cure takes place Sept. 10 and 11 at Vernon Golf and Country Club. Registration is $160 per player, which includes 18 holes of golf in a Texas Scramble format, a power cart for each twosome, lunch to go, 19th hole reception, buffet dinner, goodie bags and prizes. Included as part of registration is the Jazz it Up for Wine Women and Woods Sept. 10, with entertainment by the Neil Fraser

Gladys E. Weber June 10, 1915 - July 17, 2010
Evelyn Elizabeth Margaret Canty was born on March 15th, 1922 in Oak Lake, Manitoba and passed away on July 17th, 2010 in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 88 years. She will be lovingly remembered and greatly missed by her family.
Gladys Weber (née Perschbacher) passed away peacefully on July 17, 2010 after a brief stay in the Vernon Jubilee Hospital. She was 95 years old. Gladys was predeceased by Norman Weber, her dear husband of 47 years, who died in 1990; and by her sisters: Evelyn Sturm, Ruth Caldwell, Ethel Case and Lillian Hallman. She will be sadly missed by her two daughters, Joan Burton of Newmarket, Ontario, and Kathryn and her husband Robert Hettler of Armstrong, BC. She leaves six grandchildren: Scott and Jamie (Heidi) Burton; and Jeremy, Paul (Ruth), Karina, and Steven (Loralie) Hettler; as well as ¿ve great-grandchildren: Kyra, Emmitt, Halia, Dalia and Micah.
In respecting Evelyn’s wishes, she was cremated and a Graveside Service will be held in Calgary, Alberta at a later date. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send donations in memory of Evelyn to the Alzheimer Society Of B.C., #102-3402-27th Avenue, Vernon, B.C.

A new pacemaker implant saved Max’s life. Now he can spend more time with his grandfather.
As a young woman, Gladys left school after Grade 11 to contribute ¿nancially to her widowed mother and 4 sisters by working as Secretary to the Medical Director at Dominion Life in Waterloo. She was also the church organist at Emmanuel Evangelical Church in Waterloo for 5 years. After marrying Norman Weber in 1943, she devoted herself to being a fulltime wife and mother. In 1950, she and Norman moved to Calgary, Alberta, where they spent the rest of their lives together until his death. She was involved in the United Church as secretary, choir member and more, and was recognized for her leadership there in 1966. During those years she was also a backup organist for two churches, and an active participant in the Rotary Anns of Calgary, PEO, and two bridge clubs. She loved traveling; in addition to frequent trips to Ontario to see relatives, she and Norman travelled to Hawaii, Europe and China. In 1999, she moved to Vernon to be closer to her daughter, Kathryn, and joined Trinity United Church here.
Max underwent surgery to implant a new kind of pacemaker, one with technological advancements unavailable just 5 years ago. Every time you give to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, you fund research that leads to medical breakthroughs, like the one that saved Max’s life.
Throughout her life, Gladys was consistently generous with her time, her energy, her ¿nancial resources, and her love. Her family always knew they were loved without question. She lived a good life, and she will be missed. A special thanks to the staff at Carrington Place for their loving care of Gladys and to the Friendship Unit at Trinity. A memorial service to celebrate Gladys’ life will be held at Trinity United Church Chapel in Vernon at 3 pm on Wednesday, August 4, 2010. In lieu of Àowers, donations may be made in her name to Trinity United Church, PO Box 93, Vernon, B.C. V1T 6M1 and designate it for Camp Hurlburt, either Child Sponsorship or Rebuilding Campaign.
