Firefighters from the Armstrong-Spallumcheen and Okanagan Indian Band departments battle a Friday afternoon blaze at the Coyote Crossing Villas Mobile Home Park on Westside Road. See video of the fire at www.vernonmorningstar.com.
Fire guts mobile homes BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
At least four homes burned to the ground and a number of surrounding residences were badly damaged in a fire Friday afternoon at the Coyote Crossing Villas Mobile Home Park. There were no injuries reported as the dying flames were being doused by volunteer firefighters from the Okanagan Indian Band and Armstrong-Spallumcheen Fire Departments. A cause is not yet known but witnesses say the fire originated in the garage of a home in the northwest corner of the park, which is located just off Westside Road near the junction with Highway 97. Neighbours said a retired couple lived in the home but were quickly notified by neighbours to get out. Pat Mick lived in the home beside where the fire started and said when he noticed smoke, he grabbed a garden hose but it was futile.
“It was too far gone,” said Mick. “I got my dogs and got out.” Mick said the only reason he was home to save his pets in the first place was his shift at Okanagan Spring Brewery was cancelled because of a hydraulic explosion there on Thursday. His home is insured and he took the fire’s destruction in stride. “I don’t have to clean that window this weekend,” he chuckled ruefully with neighbours as a firefighter took an axe to the glass at the front of his house. “It was a beautiful home, but no one was hurt. “That’s life; what can you do?” Mick, the father of former Vernon Vipers head coach and general manager Troy Mick, said he would lose all the hockey photos he had of his son. He said his wife had gone to another part of the park because she was too upset to take in the scene. North Westside Fire and Rescue firefighter Fritz Vant Hullenaar was the first person on scene trained to deal with fires. He happened to notice the column of smoke as he
was driving home from shopping and began moving residents once he assessed the fire. “All the people were standing around and I had to evacuate them,” said Vant Hullenaar, who has been with North Westside Fire and Rescue for nearly three years. “I had to make sure everyone was out; there was a possibility of a natural gas explosion and the smoke was deadly.” He estimated the fire began just before 3 p.m. Soon after that, the fumes rising into the sky were so thick and black, the sun was blotted out. Witnesses said firefighters didn’t report until about 25 minutes after the flames broke out. “The response is what it is,” said Vant Hullenaar, noting the vinyl siding on the homes acted like fuel once ignited. “But it would sure be nice if we would have an agreement (with local departments). “We should be able to respond.” Most of the homes in the park were six years old or less.

News Relatives leap at birthday skydive ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Over the past 10 years, Vernon grandmother Marguerite Hughes figures sheâ€™s put 25,000 miles on a motorcycle travelling with her husband, Gerry, across B.C., the Yukon and the United States. She figures sheâ€™s gone another 80 kilometres on ATVs and done a lot of snowmobiling, things sheâ€™s been able to cross off her bucket, or to do, list before she leaves this world. Now, approaching her 75th birthday on Aug. 5, Hughes has been able to scratch another item off the bucket list: Skydiving. Hughes and her granddaughter, Taralee Busslinger, made their inaugural jumps at the Vernon Airport courtesy of Okanagan Skydive Adventures. â€œIt was the thrill of a lifetime, I thoroughly enjoyed it,â€? said Hughes, a cancer survivor who was diagnosed with lymphona in February
â€œIt was the thrill of a lifetime.â€? â€” Hughes 2009, underwent chemotherapy and then was discovered to have bowel cancer for which she successfully underwent surgery in August â€˜09. â€œThe guys at Okanagan Skydive made it so much fun. They walked you through everything and they were so great.â€? The idea for the jump came from Busslinger who mentioned to her grandmother that she would be skydiving for her birthday and that it would be an awesome experience. â€œShe said no at first, then she called me back a couple of hours later and said, â€˜Yes, Iâ€™m going to do it. Itâ€™s on my bucket list,â€™â€? said Busslinger, an esthetician who turned 23 on July 22. â€œIt was awesome. I totally want to do
it again and she (Hughes) wants to do it again.â€? Busslinger and Hughes were joined by Busslingerâ€™s boyfriend, who bought Taralee the skydiving package for her birthday, and a girlfriend. After going through lessons on the ground, the four went up in the plane to 10,000 feet. â€œIt was really weird,â€? said Busslinger. â€œThe three of us were freaking out and she (Hughes) was the only one calm about it. She wanted me to jump first and I said, â€˜Okay, whatever,â€™ but one of the instructors said no, youâ€™re grandmaâ€™s going to go first and I was like, â€˜Oh, crap, if she goes obviously I have to go.â€™ â€œIt was awesome.â€? Hughes kept the skydiving jump a secret from her husband until the morning of the leap. â€œHis comment when I told him was â€˜Why didnâ€™t I marry a woman who would stay home and knit?â€™â€? laughed Hughes.

Brewery workers back after explosion
BRENT MUTIS/MORNING STAR
Workers were on cleanup duty rather than packaging beer following Thursdayâ€™s explosion at Okanagan Spring Brewery.
They may not be performing the tasks they normally do, but all workers are back on the job at Okanagan Spring brewery after an explosion closed the building Thursday afternoon. Brewery director of operations Larry Kerwin said Friday that after cancelling the afternoon shift following the explosion, workers reported back but many were on cleanup duty rather than packaging beer. â€œWe are kegging today but not canning or bottling,â€? said Kerwin. â€œThe bottling line is adjacent to that area (where the explosion occurred).â€? The only injury sustained was to a worker who was closest to the fermenting vat when it ruptured. He cut his hand when he was knocked to the floor.
Kerwin was unable to say whether the employee was scheduled to work Friday. He also said business will be back to normal next week with no staffing changes planned. â€œWe havenâ€™t had any (layoffs) and weâ€™re not contemplating any,â€? said Kerwin. â€œBasically, except for the shifts cancelled, thereâ€™s been a minimal effect on people working.â€? Kerwin did not want to speculate about the exact cause of the blast but did note carbon dioxide accumulates in the vats when fermenting takes place. He said more will be known next week once WorkSafe BC has concluded their investigation. Okanagan Spring employees are highly occupied in the summer as customers are in need of refreshment when the mercury climbs.
â€œThis is the time of year you sell beer,â€? said Kerwin. â€œWith the hot weather... weâ€™re busy and running full out.â€?

Enderby council has come up with a wish list of ministers they’d like to meet with at the upcoming Union of British Columbia Municipalities (UBCM) convention in September in Whistler. “We have requested to meet with the ministers of transportation, environment, community and rural development and solicitor general,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. Among the topics council would like to discuss with the respective ministers include a bypass route for the city, environmental rules inconsistencies and the closure of the Armstrong-Sicamous short-line railway. “If we get a meeting with the minister of transportation, we’d like to let her (Shirley Bond) know that if the railroad is not going to be operated as a rail line, we’d like to see it maintained as public ownership rather than private,” said Wejr, who will attend UBCM along with Couns.

How to Make a Good Living Selling Real Estate without Ever Prospecting Again
Signs are pointing that it’s time to replace parks and recreation signage in Enderby. City council received a 31-page parks and recreation signage audit conducted by the Enderby Chamber of Commerce, based on a 2009 report from Macleod Consulting with findings and recommendations regarding sports tourism in Enderby and regional district electoral area F. “Signage is limited and in most cases inconsistent with any form of brand image,” said the Macleod report which recommended focusing on increasing and upgrading area signage to highlight sports tourism opportunities. The chamber audit gave council an overview of current signage, evaluated its strength and weaknesses and made recommendations. One of the main strengths is that much of the infrastructure necessary for signs is already in place. “Many signs can be placed on facilities and fences,” said the auditor’s report. “As well, a number of sign posts are in place. The large information pullout at the north end of town is already available.” The report stated a good example of directional signage already in place is at Belvidere Park, and that these examples would prove useful when new signs are designed and installed. The chamber report, however, noted several major weaknesses. “Existing signage is limited. Facility identifiers, booking information and directional signs are lacking throughout the area. Signs are insufficient in number and size for most facilities,” said the report. Existing signage also lacks a consistent theme or brand, and signs suffer from severe visibility issues, being outdated or in disrepair and incomplete and inaccurate information. The audit recommends that the city design a brand for its signage, one that is consistent for Enderby and the surrounding area and present the image in all promotional material. It also recommends strengthening Enderby’s Internet presence. Mayor Dee Wejr said the auditor’s report will be referred to the Enderby Area F Commission, which handles sports and recreation and tourism matters.

Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert (left) talks to volunteer judges Dan Alberg and Lisa Dreves from B.C. Communities in Bloom at the Vernon Spirit Square on Tuesday.
City sparkles for Bloom judges JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
Judges from the B.C. Communities in Bloom were in Vernon on Tuesday to look at the progress Vernon has made in the last year. “It’s been a tremendous year,” said Councillor Buffy Baumbrough, part of Vernon’s Communities in Bloom committee. Vernon was assessed back in September, and since then various initiatives have been undertaken to spruce up the community. The largest of which was a massive tree-panting and landscaping project at the north end of town. This is the second year Vernon has participated in the program, and the judges were quite impressed with the progress made.
“It’s truly stunning,” said first-time volunteer judge Lisa Dreves from Langley. “I’ve been highlighting things in my notes here that I need to take back to my community,” said Dreves, who was especially interested in Vernon’s water reclamation and styrofoam recycling programs. Don Alberg, who has been judging for the program for the past four years, was also pleased with what he saw. “I’m really impressed with Vernon. There’s a focus here on pride in the community,” he said. Alberg and Dreves were on a tour through Vernon, visiting 14 locations along the way, as well as driving through residential areas to see what Vernon homeowners are doing. One of their stops was at the
Spirit Square by City Hall where they met with Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert. The Community in Bloom projects in Vernon were a joint effort with the City of Vernon, the North Okanagan Regional District, as well as various community groups. Alberg says he is happiest to see municipalities and the community work in partnership to improve their natural surroundings. “It works best if it’s done together.” “All these little groups doing little things really make a difference,” said Dreves. Communities in Bloom, which holds competitions at the provincial and national level, judges communities based on eight criteria: tidiness, environmental awareness, community
involvement, natural and cultural heritage conservation, tree/ urban forest management, landscaped areas, floral displays, and turf and groundcovers. “It’s not just about nice flowers,” said Alberg. “It’s about the livability of the community.” Alberg also says that the Communities in Bloom project is more than just a competition. It’s true value is that participating municipalities get motivated to make some changes, as well as receive some useful feedback as to how to make their community a better place. Baumbrough, and fellow committee member Isabel Prystawik, are grateful to the community for their dedication to the project. “And for making Vernon such a marvelous place to live,” said Prystawik.

This year’s Funtastic slo-pitch tournament and A&W Music Festival was again a success, bringing in $145,000 that will go to various community endeavours.
Funtastic racks it up for recreation Funtastic 2010 has raised a fantastic amount of money. The Funtastic Sports Society announced the 26th annual slo-pitch tournament and A&W music festival on the July long weekend in Vernon, Armstrong and Enderby raised $145,000 for sports and recreation. “The 2010 Funtastic was a great success at all five venues with 22 regional non-profit groups able to raise more than $31,000 through Funtastic,” said society president Wilf Mulder. “These proceeds will be used to support sports and recreation initiatives in our respective communities.” Mulder praised the record number of volunteers for their efforts in helping to host one of the best tournaments in Funtastic’s history. “This 26th year saw a record 586 volunteers log more than 6,000 hours; 129 corporate partners and vendors, and key support from several city departments helped host this nationally recognized event,” said Mulder. More than 45 teams have already booked spots for the 2011 tournament. As a not-for-profit organization, proceeds raised at Funtastic will aid numerous sport and recreation initiatives.
The society sets aside $25,000 for its community grant program which helps area sporting organizations.

Life beyond Hope
ay back in 1986 I was a rookie reporter at The Hope Standard, straight out of journalism school and amazed that, as the only member of the news-gathering staff, the town was entrusting me to cover the news of the day that will eventually become the community’s history. Well, I guess it wasn’t so much the community that was putting their trust in me as it was the newspaper that hired such a raw rookie straight out of college for what I thought was an important role in the community. Looking back I think I did OK and I did have an experienced and wise editor to oversee my ramblings – “police don’t ‘report,’ we do,” is one of the things I remember him Glenn Mitchell telling me to this day. Anyway, the reason for all this navel-gazing is that I happened to stay near my old stomping grounds where all highways meet (I figure ‘Hope’ is on more traffic signs than any other community in the province) last weekend. And there’s been a few changes. The Standard office moved a couple blocks over, the old Overwaitea closed and a bright new Coopers opened up, and the site of the old A&W drive-in now boasts a spanking new Tim Hortons. There’s also a McDonald’s that never used to be there and the old Greyhound bus depot that everybody’s been to at least once in their lives moved somewhere, but I couldn’t find where. But it has been 24 years, things are going to change, even The Standard is now a tabloid and comes out Thursdays instead of Wednesdays. However, some things don’t change, either. The downtown core with the old-time theatre showing Tom Cruise’s latest, and then there’s the picturesque 9-hole, 18-tee golf course with the one-lane bridge entrance that may have too many trees and marmots for my liking but is friendly and economical and a great place to spend a day soaking up the mountainous scenery.
I also recognized a few familiar names in the newspaper after all these years, which was comforting. So, the community and the newspaper were doing fine without me, thank you very much, but I was kind of curious about the Fraser Canyon, or as some cruel, stuffy Lower Mainlanders called it, Beyond Hope (or is that what they call Interior people, I can’t remember, it’s their loss, anyway). So, after considering my options after a round of golf on Sunday, and having a couple hours to spare, I decided to go back via the Trans-Canada Highway. You see, back in ‘86 the Coquihalla had just opened and the stories emanating from Yale and Boston Bar, and even Spences Bridge and Cache Creek, let alone Spuzzum, were about how long could these communities last with the new superhighway tying into Kamloops and Vernon and eventually Kelowna and Penticton? Well? After a hot trip through the Canyon (it was 33 at Lytton as I passed by when, if I took the Coke, I might’ve been home already, heavy sigh), the Canyon is also doing OK thank you very much. That’s not to say there aren’t casualties. Spuzzum is gone as near as I can tell. There’s just a clearing where the Esso gas station and restaurant used to be and no more ‘Welcome’ and ‘Thanks for visiting’ signs that once were, oh, a football field or so apart. The Smitty’s in Yale is also closed as is a restaurant near Jackass Mountain that used to have a mural map on its side but, hey, Kanaka Bar is still there as are all the wonderful tunnels we enjoyed so much as a kid, some even with new pavement, and Boston Bar looks pretty much intact from what I can remember. But you know what? It was a wonderful trip down memory lane with still spectacular scenery and a charm that you don’t get to experience when you whiz down or up the Coquihalla at 120km an hour as you hurriedly get to your destination forgetting that sometimes life should be about the journey, not just the destination.
Located right in the midst of Highway 97A, the City of Enderby has plenty of attractions for locals and visitors. Hockey players rave about the ice at the Enderby Arena which is situated beside the Enderby Curling Club and Riverside Park. Tuey Park offers a perfect family outing in the summer on the banks of the Shuswap River. Barnes Park has a great swimming pool and playground. Belvidere Park offers concerts. The problem, sometimes, is that signs leading to the facilities are either hard to find or hard to read, so, unless you’re an Enderbyan (Enderbyte?), there’s a chance you could end up missing or having a hard time finding the facility. Which is why it was interesting to read an Enderby Chamber of Commerce auditor report on area signage. The 31-page report detailed the problems and weaknesses with current signage in the city. Five major weaknesses were identified, among them the lack of a brand or logo for the city, current signs suffering from visibility issues and that many of the signs directing visitors to a location are outdated and disrepair. The good news, according to the audit, is that infrastructure for signs is already in place, i.e., signs can be put on facilities and fences, a number of sign posts are already in place and a traffic pullout at the north end of the city is already available. The City of Enderby deferred the report to its Enderby Area F Commission, which examines sports, recreation and tourism matters. It would be wise for the commission to take a good, long look at the report and realize that changing and updating signs makes Enderby more attractive to locals, and will make visitors want to stop rather than driving straight through.

Funtastic hits another home run
ith slightly cooler temperatures than we have had in the past, 4,500 ball players still enjoyed a fabulous weekend making Funtastic 2010 another great success for all three locations. In addition to slo-pitch, the Funtastic Lawn Bowling tournament also enjoyed a phenomenally successful weekend. In 2010, Funtastic enjoyed record crowds for the evening entertainment and a sell-out for the slo-pitch tournament. Teams from across western Canada converge on our region to enjoy friendly competition and reunite with friends from previous years. Economic benefit to our community is very measurable - with more than 70 per cent of teams arriving from outside our region and spending approximately $4.5 million, Funtastic is by far the largest sport tourism event in the Okanagan. It is impossible to host an event of this scope without support. Funtastic would like to thank their sponsors and community

The stewardship of Cools Pond has been a responsibility of the North Okanagan Naturalist's Club for years. It was never meant for pond studies. Rose's Pond on the other hand is more accessible and could be used for walking trails, field studies and enjoying nature, especially if cattle are fenced out of the area and the biota is allowed to reproduce naturally and riparian growth is encouraged. It was a sad day in 1985 when the Vernon School District cut their Resource Centre Science and Field Studies Program and I couldn't point out to the 100's of Grade 3 children a giant water beetle or catch their excitement when they

Funtastic is fortunate to have more than 120 local businesses that consistently support the Funtastic event each year and our vision of improving sport and recreation in our community. The envy of several communities, Funtastic is literally run by people who volunteer their time. Thank you to the
saw "a little frog jump around." Pat Swift-McAllister CRYSTAL BALL? The City of Vernon is currently advertising for a “Crime Specialist” to work a three-day week. However this will not address the way municipal expenses have been increasing. I opened the old steamer trunk, dusted off my crystal ball and looked into the future. In about a year from now, I could see the mayor explaining how it was necessary to have the “Criminal Specialist” available five days a week so he/she could complete (elaborate and bulky) reports in a timely manner, attend important (but unnecessary) meetings with other city staff and travel (all expenses paid) to out-of-town Crime Prevention conferences. I was barely able to see through the smoke and mirrors in the corridors of City Hall, but it appeared that the Crime Specialist had a fancy office, a generous car/travel allowance and took up a lot of city resources, including other people’s time.
Funtastic board, led by Wilf Mulder, the 500 event volunteers of the Vernon Funtastic and the many volunteers of Armstrong and Enderby Funtastic, for their professionalism, dedication and hard work in making the long weekend a success. More than 6,000 hours was contributed by volunteers at the Vernon Funtastic alone. Thank you goes out to the many city departments and their staff who were read-
Some members of the staff were spending several hours a week reading the Criminal Specialist’s reports and e-mails. Most of the recommended spending initiatives to prevent crime seemed to be generated in an attempt to justify the job, rather than to realistically combat crime. Perhaps the most significant crime in Vernon is how Bob Spiers’ suggestion to have a “core review of city services” garnered no support from our council. Based on how reluctant the MPs in Ottawa were to have their expenses audited, this comes as no surprise. My suggestion is the following: Ask Tolko Industries to contract out one of their financial administrators for a month or two to oversee the cost-effectiveness of city spending … with a firm commitment that 50 per cent of the recommendations will be implemented. I can already imagine what position would be deemed unnecessary and foresee a significant reduction in the next municipal budget. Lloyd Atkins
ily available to help. To the personnel at the DND and the members of the RCMP who provided invaluable expertise and support. To host an event such as Funtastic requires our community to come together and to work together. Once again our community did just that. And last but certainly not least, thank you to our guests; the players who make Funtastic part of their travel plans to enjoy our region each year, registering from as far away as Whitehorse, enjoying social activities, our north Okanagan climate and friendliness. The reason our Funtastic is Canada’s largest slo-pitch tournament and music festival and longest running is because as a community we all work together in Building a Better Community. See you Canada Day 2011. Jim McEwan Executive Director Funtastic Sports Society
NO DOGS ALLOWED Once again, The Morning Star has seen fit to post pictures of dogs in Polson Park. Regardless of how "cute" the canines may appear to be, the fact remains... and the many signs around the park will attest to this... dogs are not allowed in Polson Park! The Morning Star should not be condoning the actions of those who choose to ignore local bylaws and rewarding the perpetrators with a photo-op. Polson Park is for those who enjoy a nice green space and the opportunity to stretch out on the green grass and not have to be disgusted by dog droppings left behind by dog owners who obviously care more about the dogs than the health and well-being of their neighbours. Polson Park is for the people of Vernon... let's not let it go to the dogs. And those dog owners who brought their dogs along to watch the fireworks at DND should be chastised as well. I'm sure the Funtastic teams
were appreciative of the little surprises to be found the next day that those dogs left behind in the dark. D. Adams

Thanks to our partnership with the — Phil Vernon Salvation Army, we can make energy efficiency more accessible to our lowincome customers in Vernon by making products available at no cost,” said Lisa Coltart, executive director of Power Smart and Customer Care for BC Hydro.

No matter how tough the challenge...
Issues heat up again at boat launch BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
Summer started slowly this year which kept traffic light at the Kalavista boat launch but recent warm weather has people flocking back and the same problems are cropping up. That’s according to Kalavista Neighbourhood Committee chairman Norm Hladun who believes council and local officials are doing the best they can but also that more help is needed. “It’s a difficult area because it’s so small,” said Hladun. “There’s lots of users using the same limited infrastructure. “These are not easily solved problems; it’s a matter of enforcing the rules so people don’t flaunt the rules.” But rule enforcement is difficult to execute. The District of Coldstream uses the services of the Commissionaires at the boat launch but they are responsible to make circuits of the lake, checking out each site, meaning there are long periods of time when a given launch is unsupervised. The only other source of enforcement at the boat launch would be from the RCMP but as Coldstream bylaw officer Bob Bibby noted, it’s not realistic to expect an officer sitting there all day. “They can’t station an RCMP officer there full time,” he said. “We’re working with the resources we’ve got.” Hladun has other specific concerns including vehicles waiting to use the launch and stopping on Kalavista Road. This forces driv-
“There’s a jurisdictional thing as well,” said Bibby. “The Commissionaires are there to hand out parking tickets and that’s it. “As far as crossing traffic lines, that’s RCMP.” Bibby said he hasn’t had an increase in comp l a i n t s — Norm about the area and that the number of parking tickets issued has not gone up noticeably from last year. He says boating traffic is directly tied to the weather. “When the sun comes out and it’s hot, everyone heads to the boat launch,” he said. “May and June were slow but the July long weekend was busy. During busy times,
two Commissionaires patrol the area with one staying stationary and the other completing the boat launch circuit. “Their presence tends to keep people honest,” said Bibby. Yet for residents like Hladun, who says cars are frequently Hladun p a r k e d illegally in front of his home, more enforcement remains the goal. “It’s just as problematic as it has been in the past,” he said. “My own personal view is to keep (the launch) it open but properly managed. “We’ll get a solution eventually; I hope it’s not the closure of the launch. “People here are pretty patient but it gets to be a legal issue.”

CORRECT YOUR METABOLISM
Lake Country close to adopting plan Black Press
After more than a year and a half of consultations, the Lake Country official community plan (OCP) is just one reading from being adopted. Council gave third reading to the document last week making several changes, based on input from the May 27 public hearing. The policy to remove the remaining seven docks in Okanagan Centre greenspace was removed. The intended purpose of removing them was to ensure continued public use of the greenspace. “I’m not convinced that removal of the docks will actually improve access to the greenspace,” said Coun. Geoff Greenwell. Greenwell followed his comment up by putting forward a motion to develop a comprehensive plan for the greenspace before the current term of council comes to a close in 2011. After comments

to a minimum size of 0.6 acres while those without a sewer connection will be held to a one-acre minimum. Development Services Manager Mark Koch told council that staff believes those lot sizes are appropriate to the area and will maintain the rural character.

B.C. Conservative Party growing Morning Star Staff
The British Columbia Conservative Party has announced the date for its 2010 Annual General Meeting (AGM). “With unprecedented membership growth, it was necessary to secure a larger venue for the meeting” said Vernon’s Wayne McGrath, the party’s president. The AGM will be held on Oct. 16 at the University of B.C. in Gordon Campbell’s riding where larger facilities are available. “With fast growing membership, commitments from high-profile speakers and a public presentation of our board, tacti-
cal advisors, we have much momentum to celebrate” said McGrath. “Our tactical advisors of former politicians from all levels of government are very pleased to see a professional provincial board and the significant influx of new members.” Randy White, former MP and current Conservative Party advisory group chairman, says things are looking up for one of B.C.’s newest political organizations. “Much optimism exists within the party and by the time Oct. 16 rolls around, there will be plenty of good news to announce to British Columbians” said White.
McGrath says he is pleased to be able to offer a legitimate political threat to the governing Liberals. He noted at a recent meeting his party should be able to field candidates across the province. “The political landscape has changed in British Columbia and with most of the 85 ridings having more than enough members to formalize their constituency associations, we will have 85 credible and motivated candidates running in the next election,” he said. “Finally, B.C. voters have a real choice”
Enderby may annex road to the west ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Residents of a road in Enderby’s western sector want to annex into the city. Six property owners on Valecairn Road have requested to be included in the city boundary because, as resident Wil Richardson wrote in a letter to council, all indications and planning show expansion to the west. “We are already connected to Enderby city water, which is managed by the city, and Enderby can look forward to planning for western expansion with cooperative property owners,” wrote Richardson. “We relate to and communicate with the city
on social matters and for future use possibility and Enderby will have more input and guidelines for future planning of Valecairn Road.” Richardson said the owners would prefer to pay their taxes to the city – they are currently in North Okanagan Regional District electoral area F – and support the community’s activities and social structures. In a memo to council, Enderby chief administrative officer Barry Gagnon recommended council refer the matter to its western sector planning process so a proper needs assessment and cost and benefit analysis can occur. Council agreed to the recommendation.

ne has to re-think strategies when sales fall off like they have for this last month. If you are trying to sell just for profit, the timing may not be right for you. The market is saturated with listings. The competition is stiff. This puts downward pressure on prices. Best to pull your listing from the marketplace and try again on a better day, sometime in the future. But if you are planning to both sell and buy on this market, you’ll probably suffer little or no losses. Based on the principle of sell low, buy low you should be okay. We realtors are finding that most sellers would be buyers, if they could only sell. One strategy to consider would be trading. So, if you are a seller, it may help you to tell your realtor about anything you would consider buying. Your realtor may then be able to suggest trade ideas. We can do that through
our Multiple Listing System and through realtor to realtor communication. Sometimes even non-real estate trades can make it happen. For example, autos, motorhomes and the like. Most trades will not be straight across trades. Most people trade up or trade down, rather than exchanging equally valued properties. So, Jane Field it’s your own property plus some cash if you are trading up, or your property and receive cash if trading down. The other strategy, and it’s the all important one, is keep amending your price so that you are the most appealing buy in your price range. Buyers nearly always view homes, then create a shortlist of the homes they like and then offer where they see the best value. If they don’t do that, they do their research looking for the best prices and only view homes that they feel are well valued. Either way, if you are a seller asking too high a price, you get passed over.
A third strategy is to do everything you can to have your home show well. It needs to show at least as well as the competition. So fix, paint, clean, freshen, de-clutter, and brighten. Consider a professional home stager. Many realtors have enough experience and/or insight to give you some pointers on this subject, as well. No doubt you have read countless articles and viewed many TV shows on this subject. Now is the time to put that knowledge into action. Finally, align yourself with an active realtor. In addition, the Multiple Listing Service coverage is the most broad exposure possible. In this market, you have the best chance of selling with the MLS system and a professional realtor. The opinions expressed here are those of Jane Field. Jane Field is an experienced professional realtor working with RE/MAX Vernon. If you would like to suggest future topics for her articles you can e-mail her at jane@ janefield.com or phone her direct line at 250503-3755.

The second half of that title could well be “or join the Air Force and never see an aircraft.” Here’s what I mean. It took place in the days of National Service in Great Britain. This was when all males who were physically and mentally fit (although I have some doubts about the latter part) when they attained the age of 18 years had to do two years compulsory military service. Some people were exempt from this for an assortment of reasons but most lads looked on it as a period in life that had to be got through as quickly and painlessly as possible so that they could return to normal life and work in “Civvy Street.” A frequent chat was “Roll on Death, Demob is too far away.” (Demob was the end of one’s service period when one was demobilized.) Actually at the end of the two years one was expected to keep the majority of one’s uniform and personal equipment and be on Reserve Force duty for about five years, but luckily in Britain very few Reservists were ever recalled to duty. Technically the nation was at peace, but the war had only been over for 10 years and there were still a variety of wars and conflicts going on (as there regrettably still are) around the globe. So some National Servicemen died in combat, others did regular service work for the safety of the realm, and others did what was basically civilian work in a military environment. One did not always get to pick how one was to do the two years. Those qualified in occupations that could be used in the ser-
vices stood the best chance of continuing their chosen careers in the military. For most lads the best that they could do was to opt for a service or trade that sounded like a good idea. So it was for me and my best school friend, Alan Ayre. I chose the RAF as I had had an interest in aviation matters for as long as I could remember. Alan was not fussy and his dad had been in the army so Alan chose, or drifted into, the army Just about everyone in all services had to do “square bashing” (that is basic drill, weapons, and other training) for about eight weeks. During this period in the RAF one could have the choice of five trades to go in for. I was intending to pursue a technical/engineering career back in “Civvy Street” so I chose, in priority order, airframe fitter, engine fitter, wireless fitter, and radar fitter for the first four available trades. I had no idea what to select as the fifth choice. The sergeant in charge of the procedure suggested that I put down wireless operator. This sounded vaguely suitable to me, so I made it my fifth choice although it was indicated to me that it was unlikely that I would get a fifth selection made but I had to select something to make a total of five choices The whole choice process took less than five minutes and there was no attempt obvious to match anyone’s desires or abilities to a trade. During our last week of square-bashing the 100 or so of us in our recruit training flight were all paraded in to a large hall to be allocated our trades and postings for the next part of our service, either on
a trade training course or for on-the-job training. There was a collective muttered groan as the first airman was allocated as a cook to Singapore. But when my name was called out I was told that I had been given my fifth choice of wireless operator. I was told that the reason for this was that my colour vision was defective in the reds and greens zone. Off I went to do my trade training courses. At the end of them all I was posted to an ex-airfield in Lincolnshire in Eastern England as a fully-trained Wop D/F Op(A). for ground-based signals duties. There were no aircraft there nor was I ever going to see one during my two years service. Had I been allocated one of my other four trade choices I would have been working on some kind of aircraft and maintaining a lifelong interest in them. But the worst thing was that my friend Alan (who I still keep in touch with in Falkirk, Scotland) although he had joined the county regiment, the Durham Light Infantry, had been posted down to the School of Combined Warfare on Salisbury Plain in the south of England. Here he spent his service flying around in Auster army-cooperation aircraft! So join the infantry and fly, or join the air force and sit on the ground! A friend of mine had an older brother who, during World War Two, started in the army, transferred to the air force, and finished up in the navy. I’ve no doubt that other veterans have similar tales to tell because at the end of the day it is the military that decides your fate according to their needs, not yours.

Terry A. Muir,
Clive and Ann Porteous, married Aug. 6, 1960, celebrate their golden wedding anniversary this year.
Fifty years and still going strong It is with great pride and admiration that the family of Clive and Ann Porteous announce their 50th wedding anniversary. Clive, from Mabel Lake, met Ann Adams from Lumby at Charles Bloom secondary school. Both accomplished athletes, they fell in love and were married Aug. 6, 1960.Their deep love and commitment to each other remains as strong as ever today. Their first home was in Smithers, B.C. where their oldest, Katherine, was born. Being young and homesick, they made their way back to the Lumby area. They had three more children: Kelly, Kevin and Kieth, all born in Vernon. Tragically, Kieth passed away in 1965. Clive was offered a job with Procter Bros. Logging and they moved to Falkland where they raised their children. Ann was well-known as an accomplished seamstress. In the years to come they would see their children marry and have children of their own. Kathy married Barry Newman. Kelly married Doug Cumming and Kevin married Katherine Antony. Clive and Ann moved to Vernon in 1991 where they still live on East Hill. Clive has had many successes hunting and fishing and lots of â€œfish-talesâ€? to tell. Ann was and still is the best home-maker, creating delicious baking and canning and
the best Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter dinners ever. They both look forward to spending their summers at Mabel Lake where they have worked very hard to create their own little piece of paradise. They are the proud grandparents of four beautiful
granddaughters: Jessica, Jennifer, Jamie and Montana as well as four handsome grandsons: Travis, Chandler, Shelby and Domenik. You will often see Clive and Ann attending one of their sporting events, proudly cheering them on. Their active lifestyle and healthy atti-
tudes have kept them as young and vibrant as the day they were married. A gathering will be held Aug. 7 at 1 p.m. at Coldstream Park. â€œThank you for teaching us the importance of family, Mom and Dad. We are so proud of you. Congratulations from your family.â€?

Caretenders Inc. is pleased to announce that it has concluded the purchase of the City of Armstrongâ€™s Haugen Avenue site and that it will proceed with the construction of Heaton Place. On-site construction activity should commence within the week. Heaton Place, a retirement residence for seniors, is a 77 unit strata lot development which will be comprised of 76 residential strata lots and one commercial strata lot. The residential strata lots will be a mix of 16 two bedroom suites (approximately 1,100 sq ft) and 60 one bedroom suites (approximately 685 sq ft) that will come equipped with window coverings, appliances, and carpeting. The residential strata lots will be available for purchase or rent. The commercial strata lot, which will be operated and managed by Caretenders Inc., will house the common areas and amenity space integral to this unique community. It will include such things as recreational and activity space, lounges, dining room, commercial kitchen, wellness center, salon; and administrative ofďŹ ces. Each strata owner (or renter) will enjoy a mandatory service package which includes: weekly housekeeping and the laundering of bed and bath linens; breakfast and dinner daily in our dining room; scheduled snacks and refreshments; planned activities and social events; twenty-four hour electronic wireless monitoring; and the security and safety stemming from an environment with twenty-four hour stafďŹ ng and the most current ďŹ re and safety systems. By purchasing a strata lot, residential owners at Heaton Place, preserve their wealth through real estate ownership, while at the same time saving approximately ďŹ fty percent (50%) of the monthly fees that they might otherwise have to pay in distant rental properties of a similar quality; and having a similar amenity and service package. Designed for independent seniors, facility occupants with stable health concerns will be able to avail themselves of limited assisted living services, if required. These services, available at an additional cost, could include the monitoring of medications; bathing; ambulation; and personal grooming assistance. The Wellness Center is intended to keep occupants educated and abreast of health issues common to an aging population; and is intended to serve as a location where area and local service providers might deliver their services on-site to the facility population. Such services might include routine medical examinations, podiatry services; or other home health services. â€œThus, we have adopted the slogan, Enhance Your Lifestyle, Preserve your Wealth,â€? states Alex Miller, Vice President, Caretenders Inc. The 18.8 million dollar project is anticipated to be completed in late 2011. With an extensive and expanding interest list, potential purchasers are encouraged to purchase at pre-construction pricing to avoid possible price increases; and to ensure the best suite selection. Visit our Presentation Center at 3430 Okanagan Street, or call 250-546-3353. The City of Armstrong will use the proceeds from the sale of their land to purchase six one-bedroom residential strata lots in the development upon the completion of construction. â€œAlthough speciďŹ c details have not been ďŹ nalized on how this program will work, it is the Cityâ€™s intention to make these suites available to qualifying residents of the City of Armstrong, who do not have the capital resources available to purchase a strata lot in the development, but who have the available monthly income to pay rent and the monthly service fees. The City of Armstrong is extremely pleased to see the Heaton Place project proceed; and to have 76 units of seniors housing made available to our communityâ€?, states Mayor Chris Pieper.

Emma Dolcetti continued her scoring tear, recording four goals to lead Little Tex Outlaws to an 8-3 win over the AF Blazers in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Competitive Division play Thursday night at Marshall Field #3. Dolcetti, a sophomore with the Gonzaga University Bulldogs, earned a hat trick against the Fusion Tuesday night. She had yet another strong game with many shots on net, creating many opportunities in the middle. Lyndsay Lee pocketed a pair of goals for the Tex girls, with singles from Jessa Joles and Tania Ghattis. Joles was a force in the middle, generating opportunities for the forwards with smart ball distribution. Jordan Mercer had a great game at the back, stifling the Blazer offence. The Blazers responded with goals

Venom tame Tigers for title Blois banks crown Morning Star Staff
It came down the final week of play, but Team Blois – skip Donna Blois, vice Loretta Monk and lead Barry Blois – claimed first place in the Vernon Competitive Mixed Lawn Bowling League. Although tied for points, Blois shaded runnersup Team Adamoski (skip Ken Adamoski, vice Bill Aldag and lead Christine Pilgrim) based on point differential. The league is hosted by the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club.
Sr. Shamrocks to tangle with Rattlers in final Morning Star Staff
In only their third season of existence, the Kamloops Venom have captured the Thompson-Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League title. The host Venom grounded the Vernon Re/Max Tigers 5-4 in overtime on Thursday night at Memorial Arena to win the best-of-five championship series 3-1. The Cats controlled most of the play throughout the game, peppering Venom star netminder Andrew Copeland with 52 shots. Tiger veteran Braidy Webb said Copeland, who was ejected from Game 3 for wearing illegal equipment (oversized shoulder pads), was the difference Thursday. “He played a great game. We got a lot of movement on offence, but we couldn’t get anything by him. He definitely knows how to stand between the posts,” said Webb, 21, one of four graduating Tigers. Captain Robbie Short, Blake Lewis and Russel MacLean are the other three. Added Tigers’ assistant coach and general manager Rich Zecchel: “We outshot them 52-42, we out-played them, we out-hit them, we punished them. We deserved that win, but their goalie stoned us. “We got no breaks, and they always seemed to score that late goal (in this series). We just couldn’t squeeze out a win.” The Venom now advance to the provincial junior B lacrosse championship, a fourteam affair that will take place, July 30-Aug. 3 at the George Preston Arena in Langley. Jamie Forster opened the scoring for Kamloops, but Vernon responded in the second period with goals from Joey Klein, Nolan Frame and Short. Goals by the Venom’s Rob Peterson and Cole Eustache had the game tied 3-3 going into the second intermission. There was just one penalty called the entire game, which Zecchel said is a good indica-

The Venom won 5-4 to claim the TOJLL playoff pennant. tion of how entertaining this matchup was. “It was a well-played game, well attended, the refs let us play. It was just good lacrosse,” he said. Brett Hanna had a glorious chance to pot the winner in the final minute of regulation. In a gutsy call, the Venom pulled Copeland in the final minute to try to earn the win, but it nearly backfired as Hanna worked through their press and unleashed a shot from centre that hit the post with three seconds left of the clock. Steve Bordon potted the winner in non-sudden death overtime, after regular-season scoring leader Quinn Smith and Webb traded goals earlier in the extra frame. While the Venom are more renowned for their runand-gun offence, Webb said Kamloops’ defence held its own. “They play really tight defence and it was difficult getting their guys to move in the crease.” The Venom finished second this season in the seven-team TOJLL at 11-2-1, two points
8828 STONINGTON ROAD, VERNON
behind the Tigers (12-1-1). Since the TOJLL was formed in 2000, Kamloops squads have won six of the 11 titles. The Kamloops Rattlers captured five straight crowns from 200408 before the Tigers claimed it last season. While Webb would have loved to have added a second straight TOJLL playoff pennant to the trophy case, he will think back on this season, and his career with the Tigers, fondly. “It was a good way to go out. We had a great season last year, and we only lost one game in the (regular) season this year. It was fun being around the guys. I’ll miss it,” he said. “We had our chance last year, and now they get their chance this year, and I wish them the best of luck and hope they come back with something.” Zecchel noted the Tigers are expected to be a contender again next year. “We’re getting half of the (North Okanagan Legends) Midget A2 gold-medal team, and Armstrong is getting the other half.
“They got mostly lefties, we got all righties,” added Zecchel, grinning. The Tigers thanked sponsors Re/Max, Boston Pizza, Coca-Cola and Canaccord Wealth Management. ■ For the first time in five years, the Shaw Cup will reside in a different barn. The four-time defending Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League playoff champion Kelowna Raiders fell 7-6 to the Kamloops Rattlers in a seriesdeciding Game 3 of the Shaw Cup semifinals Friday night at Memorial Arena. The Rattlers will face the regular-season champion Armstrong Shamrocks in Game 1 of the best-of-three championship series Monday night (8 p.m.) at the Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. Game 2 will go Wednesday in Kamloops, with Game 3, if necessary, returning to Nor-Val Friday. The Shamrocks swept the Vernon Tigers 2-0 in their semifinal series. The Rattlers won the regular-season series between the two teams 3-1.

Golf British Columbia
Surrey’s Adam Svensson is the youngest player ever to win a B.C. Amateur Men’s Golf Championship. The 16-year-old put together four solid rounds of 67-71-68-70 to claim the 2010 title at the Castlegar Golf Club Friday afternoon. Svensson carded an eagle on the par-5 16th hole and never looked back as he played to a five shot victory with 8-under-par 276. “I was hitting the ball great and I putted great,” said Svensson. “I was plus-one on the front, so pressure was on for the back. I was one-up on 15. Justin (Shin of Pitt Meadows) doubled and I eagled 16. That took the pressure off to par it in.” Shin finished in a three-way tie for second place with Darren Wallace and Adam Cornelson, both from Langley. A playoff saw Wallace nab the final spot on the Willingdon Cup team to join Nick Taylor of Abbotsford, Eugene Wong of North Vancouver, and Svensson at the Canadian Amateur Championship at London Hunt/Redtail Golf Course in London, Ont. Aug. 10-15. Cory Renfrew of Victoria, B.C. and Riley Wheeldon of Courtenay, B.C. tied for fifth at twounder par 282. Predator Ridge’s Justin Wurz was the top local amateur, shooting rounds of 75-70-72-80 to finish tied for 39th with a 13-over-par 297. Conner Kozak of the Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club stroked rounds of 78-70-75-80 for a four-round total of 303, finishing in 63rd.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) There is nothing wrong with expressing your independence when it is warranted. However, it should be done sparingly and only when you are truly being treaded upon.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Although you may not take any spur-of-the-moment commitment you make seriously today, others will. Once the words are out of your mouth, you must stand by them or suffer the consequences.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) If something truly nice happens for you today, try to include others or credit them for your good fortune if you can. Having no cheering section will diminish your happiness.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Developments that can contribute to your well-being will be handled well today, however, a number of other situations might not receive the same thoughtful treatment. You’ll pay the price.
Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once.
The year ahead could be one in which Lady Luck will play a far more active role in your affairs than she has in the past. A number of fortuitous interventions on her part will be responsible for altering what hasn’t been working well.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If you’re inviting a few people over to your place today to participate in a fun activity, have second thoughts about including someone who rubs the others wrong. S/he could be a spoiler. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Be as democratic as possible today when it comes to issues involving the family. Don’t take it upon yourself to make all the decisions without consulting with the others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You wouldn’t consciously bring up issues that have always generated dissention, but today you could do so without thinking if you’re not careful. Think before you open your mouth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Remember it is never wise to take anything of a commercial nature for granted, but if you ignore this wisdom today, events will show you why. It’ll be your loss if you get careless. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) An idea you think is pretty nifty might not appeal to your spouse or any of the others involved, so don’t take it upon yourself to set it in motion without first conferring with the clan. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) A good opportunity that could better things for you might present itself today, but it will count for nothing if you don’t take advantage of it. Don’t rest your feet when you should be dancing.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20) There’s an excellent chance that lots of good things will be happening for you today, but a couple of bum things could get interwoven. Don’t let them take away your upbeat spirit. CANCER (June 21-July 22) By keeping an even keel on the management of your funds today, you can offset the few losses you might experience. It’s important not to be prudent one minute and unduly extravagant the next.

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.

News Hansen likes Libs’ chances KATHY MICHAELS Black Press
Three years away from an election, B.C. finance minister Colin Hansen appeared to be on the stump when he arrived in this Liberal-laden region for a presentation entitled Building a Better B.C. “I’m very optimistic for 2013,” he said Tuesday afternoon, when asked whether the Liberals would survive to see another four years in the legislature. “Over the last nine years we’ve built a solid economy, there have been record highs of job creation and when you look at the nine-year track record, B.C. can be seen as an economic leader.” Regardless of his take, getting British Columbians on the same page may require some significant action because the party is contending with plummeting popularity that seems to be fuelled by dissent over the HST. An online Angus Reid public opinion poll of 801 British Columbians
released last week, shows a 23-point drop in B.C. Liberal support in July, compared to the 46 per cent of people who voted for the party in May 2009. Support dwindled as the HST implementation date neared. The party’s support sat at 35 per cent in March, 29 per cent in April and 26 per cent in June. The data collecting agency also found that 76 per cent of respondents are against the controversial new tax, and that 75 per cent would vote to abolish it if there was a referendum. All this dissent, Hansen explained, stems from poor communication. Hansen added that a big part of the problem was an Elections B.C. decision to block the party from advertising the benefits of the HST while a petition aimed at quashing it was circulating. The tax, he explained, will cost consumers a bit more from the get-go, but in the long run it

There was an error printed in the Wednesday, July 21 issue of The Morning Star regarding a charity concert tonight for 10-year-old Jade Freeman’s nonprofit, Trees Make a Difference. The story, which said that tickets for the show could be purchased by e-mailing Freeman, contained an incorrect email address. Freeman’s correct e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org. The concert, featuring the Cats and the Fiddle band, is tonight at 5 p.m. at the Mackie Lake House. Tickets are $10 for adults, and free for children five and under.
will streamline taxation and ultimately reduce the sticker price of most items. It’s proven to be the case in Atlantic provinces, he said, and British Columbians will eventually see the same impact. Above all else, the province is in good stead economically, he said, pointing to a deficit that’s $1.7 billion, as opposed to the projected $2.8 billion, and taxation on families that’s less than a decade ago.

Travelling each leg of the 3,000-kilometre bicycle journey around B.C., Tulani Ackerman has lots of time to think about the students she teaches back in Prince Rupert. She’s on a 43-day campaign for her StEps for Students program so British Columbians will think about students too as she raises awareness of the challenges faced by the province’s public schools. Stopping in Vernon Tuesday on the 20th day of her quest, the 30-year-old high school teacher says she’d like to see more co-operation between educators and politicians because it’s kids that suffer when blame is volleyed back and forth. “As a society, we need to find creative ways to educate our children,” said the Rossland native. “We need to figure out the challenges and find solutions so people have confidence to put their kids in the system.” Ackerman says the lack of one-on-one instruction due to increased class sizes and decreased support staff as well as a decline in learning outside the classroom bothers many young parents. “This is for awareness,” she said of her bike tour. “I’m just stating that we can create an education system that meets the needs of our kids and works for everyone, not just a select few.” Tuesday’s leg of the tour was a relatively easy one for Ackerman as she left Salmon Arm in the morning and was in Vernon by the early afternoon. Some days see her travel more than 100 kilometres. Her mother-in-law Barb Henderson drives alongside in a station wagon, plans accommodations and keeps the food and beverages stocked up on a $28-dollar-a-day budget. Heat and sore legs have been challenges but the pair will truck on through the Kootenays this week and will wind up in Victoria on Aug. 12. “We’re starting earlier in the morning which is helping,” said Ackerman. “Barb keeps me hydrated and fed. “Rain or shine, the only thing that comes to mind is how many kids I can help. I just think of my students and keep on biking.” Entering her fifth year as a teacher, Ackerman says an objective must be identified that all interest groups can work towards. “We need to put the same goal in mind and that’s how to put children first,” she said. You can follow Ackerman on her journey and donate to the effort via her website which is www.stepsforstudents.ca.

4HESE FLOWERS ARE MORE THAN DECORATIVE CATHI LITZENBERGER
Morning Star Columnist
Edible flowers are as delicious as they are beautiful and will add an elegant addition to any celebration plus itâ€™s an easy and exquisite way to impress family and friends. Be sure to choose flowers that are organically grown (no chemicals) and those that are safe to eat. Edible flowers are both nutritious and delicious, adding vitamins, minerals and low calories to any recipe, such as salads, casseroles and drinks. Try making flavoured sugars by layering flower petals such as rose, lavender or lemon balm in a jar with fine sugar; seal the jar and wait for two weeks before using. Another idea is to freeze a pansy into each ice cube for those special drinks. Flowers available this time of year include lavender, nasturtiums, pansies, day lilies, asters, hollyhocks, gardenia and violets. Todayâ€™s recipes include an appetizer salad, stuffed squash blossoms, a cookie recipe and a wonderful scone recipe that can be eaten with any fruit in season. Orange and Lavender Salad 4 ripe oranges 2 tsp. freshly chopped lavender blossoms 2 shallots, finely chopped 2 tbsp. sherry vinegar Lettuce leaves to serve Cut orange slices into quarters, then place all ingredients except for the salad leaves, in a large mixing bowl and mix gently but thoroughly. Arrange salad leaves on individual plates and top with the orange mixture. Serve as a first course or side salad. Stuffed Squash Blossoms 18 zucchini, acorn or pumpkin blossoms, stamen removed Cheese Filling: 3 oz. goat cheese (feta) 3 oz. cream cheese Â˝ tsp. red pepper flakes Â˝ tsp. dried oregano Âź tsp. dried basil 1 clove garlic, minced Salt and pepper to taste Beer batter: 2 tbsp. cornstarch Â˝ cup flour Â˝ tsp. salt Âź tsp. black pepper Âź tsp. celery salt Âź tsp. baking soda Â˝ tsp. baking powder 1 egg, beaten Â˝ cup cold, flat beer Vegetable oil for frying Salt and pepper to taste Grated Parmesan and sliced chives for garnish
Scones served with clotted cream and berries is a delicious tea time treat.
A salad with pansies tossed into the mix adds a burst of colour and a tasty complement to the greens. Gently swish the squash blossoms in cold water to clean. Carefully twirl to remove most of the water, then drain thoroughly on paper towels. Set aside. Beat goat cheese, cream cheese, red pepper flakes, oregano, basil, garlic, salt and pepper until blended. Gently fill each blossom with about 2 tsp. of the cheese filling. Refrigerate while making batter. In a heavy skillet, heat 2 inches of oil to 375 F over medium heat. While oil is heating, whisk together cornstarch, flour, salt, pepper, celery salt, baking soda, baking powder, egg and beer until combined. Carefully dip a stuffed blossom into the batter, covering the entire flower, and ease into the hot oil. Brown on one side, then turn to brown the other. Cook only a few at a time so they arenâ€™t crowded. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining squash blossoms. Sprinkle stuffed blossoms with salt and pepper to taste and garnish with a sprinkling of grated Parmesan cheese and chopped chives. Yield: 8-10 servings. Sweet Wine Lavender Cookies Lavender Sugar: 2 tbsp. fresh lavender flowers (or 1 tbsp. dried) 1 cup superfine white sugar. Cookies: 1 cup plus 1-1/2 tbsp. all-purpose flour 1/3 cup lavender sugar, divided Pinch of salt 4 tbsp. (Âź cup) cold butter, cut into pieces 2-1/2 tbsp. sweet white wine 12 leaves of fresh lavender, chopped finely
Lavender sugar: combine sugar and lavender in a glass jar, seal tightly, and store in a warm, dry spot for 2 weeks to infuse the sugar. Sift through a fine sieve to remove flowers before using. Cookies: Preheat oven to 375 F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper or lightly grease. Remove 1 tbsp. of measured 1/3 cup lavender sugar and set aside. Whisk together remaining sugar, flour, and salt until combined. Rub butter into flour using your fingertips or a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in wine and lavender leaves. Let mixture sit for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. It should bond together. Gather up dough and place on a floured board. Roll into a rectangle 1/8-inch thick. Use a pizza wheel or a sharp knife to cut strips 2-inches long by 1-inch wide. Twist each strip once in the centre to resemble a bow and place on prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 6-8 minutes until edges barely begin to turn brown. Cool on wire racks and dust with remaining lavender sugar. Makes about 36 cookies. Lemon Lavender Scones with Clotted Cream and Berries (rose petals/hips can be substituted for lavender, remove bitter, white part of petal first) 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 tsp. Kosher salt 1 tsp. baking powder 1 tsp. baking soda 1/3 cup granulated sugar plus 1 tsp. Finely grated zest of 2 lemons 2 tsp. finely chopped dried lavender, divided
4 tbsp. unsalted butter, chilled 1/2 cup non-fat yogurt Â˝ cup buttermilk plus 1 tbsp. Âž cup powdered sugar, sifted 2 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice Clotted (Devonshire) cream to accompany scones Assorted berries for serving Centre an oven rack and preheat oven to 400 F. Line baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone mat. Sift flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda into medium bowl. Add the 1/3 cup of the sugar, lemon zest and 1-1/2 tsp. dried lavender. Mix to combine. Cut the chilled butter into 1/2-inch pieces and drop into bowl of dry ingredients. Using a pastry blender or your fingers, cut the butter into the mixture until evenly distributed and no large pieces of butter are visible. Combine yogurt and Â˝ cup of the buttermilk in a glass measuring cup, whisk. Add to dry ingredients and stir until dough comes together. Coat your hands with flour and pull the dough from the bowl onto a floured surface. Knead dough lightly, folding and flattening it several times. Pat dough into a 6-inch circle, approximately 1-inch thick. Transfer dough onto prepared baking sheet. Brush the top with remaining 1 tbsp. of the buttermilk, sprinkle remaining 1 tsp. sugar over the top. Using blunt side of a large knife, score the circle into 8 wedges without cutting all the way through. Bake about 23 to 25 minutes, until golden brown. Cool scones on baking sheet for 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the remaining lavender, powdered sugar and lemon juice. Stir until smooth. Transfer scones onto a cutting board and cut into wedges using the scored lines as a guide. Place scones on the rack set over the baking sheet. Drizzle the icing over slightly warm scones. Serve with a generous dollop of clotted cream and fresh berries of your choice. Makes 8 scones. Note: Devonshire cream can be purchased in most local grocery and specialty stores, in the dairy section.

or the majority of people, athletic performance and general fitness don’t match up in the same category. In actual fact, an athlete and general fitness enthusiast can be in the exact same category when it comes to dysfunction and training. Do not fool yourself into thinking that your training should be any different if you do not consider yourself an athlete. The human body is athletic in every movement we make. When it comes to fitness conditioning it’s important to get a clear understanding of what category you fall into so any program you follow will address your needs. There are three main components to think about. Movement which means you have optimal functional movement. Performance which shows adequate power and coordinated movement. And skill that shows you have optimal sports-specific or activity-specific skill. For many people there is an imbalance between these areas. There can be an overpowered or underpowered or underskilled
athlete/individual. Take someone who is highly powered but unstable. This individual may seem strong but lacks appropriate stability to reduce injuries and transfer even more power. Or take an athlete who is highly skilled in their sport but is actually lacking strength, power or consistency and fizzles out early in the game. There needs to be a reason why you are training the way you do. Even basic fat loss programs need to
address limitations. Many training programs now have become far too specialized and fancy. You must keep it simple. True success lies in the individual who can move with appropriate range of motion, has an increased sense of body awareness and an appropriate amount of power production. You need to have enough stability, mobility and proper movement to handle loads and forces during training, life and game play. You
will then feel like you are in control of your surroundings and any chance of injuries is greatly reduced. So what does this all mean for you? It means don’t exercise blindly. Do not follow generic programs. Think about your weaknesses and limitations when you move and find out how to reduce them. Education is the key to fitness success. Strong Points is written by Rhonda Catt, a certified personal trainer in the North Okanagan.
Regional District of North Okanagan
The Vernon & District Animal Care Society hopes that rural property owners will save the lives of eight adult cats who lost their home when their rescuer fell seriously ill and could no longer care for them. Society president Heather Pettit hopes that the felines can be placed in barns. “These shy cats are not adoptable as family pets,” says Pettit, “but they will make excellent mousers. They are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. They’ll work seven days a week for a little food, water and shelter and never produce unwanted kittens.” Anyone willing to give one or more of these cats a second chance at life is urged to call Pettit at 250-542-7203. “These animals, and hundreds of others like them, do not deserve to die. They are the innocent victims of human irresponsibility.” In the last two years VDACS has trapped, spayed/ neutered and returned 519 feral (unsocialized) cats in the North Okanagan. “Unfortunately, the problem of abandoned cats and their feral offspring remains huge. If you have homeless cats in your area, call VDACS for help.
“They are the innocent victims of human irresponsibility.” — Heather Pettit “Female cats can have two to three litters a year with four to five kittens in an average litter, so don’t delay making a phone call. If you can’t afford the total cost of “fixing” your own cat or dog the society will help too. Call Pettit or visit www.
vernonanimalcare. com, fill out an assistance application form online, and e-mail it to email@example.com. “Please reduce homelessness and suffering by taking advantage of our programs today,” said Pettit.

Enjoy, but play it safe
he smell of chlorine triggers happy childhood memories for me of hours and hours spent in my hometown, at Strathroy’s outdoor community pool. Or perhaps even earlier memories of Melwood Park in Metcalf Township. I love swimming and as a result of having a pool for the summer am rekindling that joy. And my skin and hair are grateful that it is a salt water one and not a chlorine pool! Michele Blais At the town pool I took lessons, swam on the swim team, diving club and synchronized teams. When I got older I helped teach lessons. My social life as a kid was around the pool and it was cheap entertainment for my family, as a pass was probably at the time $30. Locally families in Armstrong and Lavington can enjoy their outdoor pools. When the lads were shorter we made many a day trip out to these communities to enjoy their park and pool, even taking our bikes so we could explore the area to make it a full adventure. Swimming can be joyful and dangerous. Water is described as gentle, calm, and wild, and wicked. I was fortunate to take to swimming easily and was like a fish, diving, holding my breath under water for ages to go great distances. I also like to float. There is something so peaceful about lounging on a floatie or floating on your back, sculling the water gently with your hands, legs together, still, eyes closed or open to watch the clouds. No one disturbs you in that moment of silence with just the gentle lulling of the water against your body. My mother could float for ages and be so still, sometimes so still that people would approach her to see if she was OK.
THE WAY I SEE IT
I say dangerous because if you can’t swim, water can be a scary place. We are never too old to learn, and basic dog paddling can allow you to enjoy the water and provide comfort, as can treading water. Four hundred people a year will die from water-related accidents, most while boating, and so it is important to be aware, wear lifejackets and use common sense. When the boys were younger our good friend Lyle would not let them on to his dock without a lifejacket. It was a good rule, kids move quickly and can be hurt in an instant. He knew this firsthand from a friend’s young son dying when trying to help tie up a boat in a storm. One minute he was on the dock, the next he was gone. Teach your children to swim: it is a great skill that can be free, enjoyed in so many different places and enjoyed for a lifetime. With the world being 75 per cent water, it makes sense. Life experience will teach us many lessons and a few months spent on a sailboat in the Caribbean taught me to appreciate the force of the ocean. The wind seemed to change in a flash, although as time went on I would learn to watch for the ripple on the top as the beginning of change. My first night on a solo watch the winds changed from 12 knots to 36 and my peaceful enjoyment became action. Thank goodness the other crew were light sleepers and heard my cry for help, and it was amazing to see the wind pick up, the boat respond and the adrenaline levels rise. I must admit I do like the fast wind, the boat moving with the rise and fall of the waves, cutting through, sails capturing the wind, and then eventually peace again like it never happened. It was a beautiful trip and one I revisit in my memory bank often, dolphins swimming beside us, no other sailboat or ship, or land in sight, the sounds of the waves lulling us into this feeling of
To place a classified ad call:
tranquility, monotony or charging us to have all senses on alert. And then into a safe harbour, sharing stories of adventure, listening to other tales and planning the next outing. I am very grateful for that time. With three lakes in our community we have many opportunities to enjoy the water. As a parent on a budget I was always glad to have those days of free recreation at one of our local parks. Paddlewheel Park was a favourite as it has a shaded beach area, playground, and easy parking, so it is not to far too walk with all the stuff we needed for a day at the beach. Same as Kin Beach with its playground, shade, bigger beach and parking area. As they got taller and didn’t need strollers, Kal Park and Kal Beach were also regulars spots, especially on volleyball night. The Peanut Pool was another favourite in the early years. Another favourite activity of mine in the summer is floating down the river in Enderby, in those moments of laziness, content in my tube, or rubber dinghy I think of Mark Twain and his characters Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn and their river antics. My brother Paul lives in downtown Toronto and loves the city, and all its trimmings. However, a float down the lazy river is an enjoyable contrast to his noisy world, as is sleeping on our floating dock at the cabin — another must do during summer visits. Rowing on Swan Lake has also been a very enjoyable activity, the rhythm of the paddlers, the oars dipping in together, pull out and in. Beautiful and one that I want to do more. Living here we are fortunate that we have so many water sources that are safe, clean and accessible. We have at times not been concerned and we should be. “We will never know the worth of water till the well is dry.” Enjoy this precious resource, be aware and be careful.

EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
Heavenly creatures ride into Everyone
’ve never met a vice I liked, until now. But then I’ve never been asked to take my moral compass for a spin by the devil in disguise himself like the poor family in Everyone does. A modern morality play that takes its audience to the pearly gates of Caravan Farm Theatre, Everyone, directed by the farm’s artistic director Estelle Shook, is for anyone who wants to laugh until they cry. For its opus with the “mostest,” Caravan took on the overwhelming task of inviting six independent B.C.-based theatre companies to help them create a piece of a whole puzzle based on a Middle Age morality text. What they came up with will knock your knickers off, a moral dilemma in itself that is tackled in the play. And despite a few bumps in the road on opening night Thursday, such as the errant child who came wandering into one scene, the loud, Kristin Froneman but very timely whinnies of some of the equine crew, and one human in the audience who couldn’t help shout out her thoughts –– maybe it was the wine, maybe she was excited, who knows?–– Everyone managed to flow, despite its seven very different scenes. Each brings on a flood of emotion, and some very colourful characters. It all starts in the darkness where a mother and father from long ago are given an impossible decision to get into heaven. And let’s just say it’s a hard choice to digest. But just when you think Everyone is about to sink into a pit of despair, with the pearly gates closed for all eternity, we leave the Middle Ages and are introduced to an everyday modern family. Mother, father, son and daughter are plucked out of the audience by the wickedly delightful Vice and his gorgeous adversary Virtue, and after many interruptions caused by a cell phone (one of the character’s, not an audience member’s, luckily), they are presented with a map that will lead them to heaven... which begs the question: where’s Dora the Explorer when you really need her?! Accompanied by a band of instrument-wielding bandits who play the fantastic score by composer/musical director David Rhymer, each scene that follows comes in the form of a set pulled by the farm’s horses and their handlers –– a glorious sight. The anticipation of what’s going to happen as the caravans (talk about a magical touch by set designer Catherine Hahn, her painters and crew) pull into place is like dinner followed by dark chocolate, a glass of red vino, and, well, you know. It’s that satisfying. And it just wouldn’t be an entertaining enough story without the allegorical characters –– greed, shame, procreation, lust and the hilariously evil host of a game show called Killing Conundrum (you have to see it to believe it) –– along the road that test the family. Everyone would be nothing without its cast of six pri-

Playing silver-tongued devil Vice is Martin Julien, a Caravan Farm alumnus who’s played crazy beautifully before: think Pinchbeck from The Apple Orchard or Cyrano from Cyrano of the Northwest. Part Jack Nicholson from Witches of Eastwick mixed with Iggy Pop, with his whisky-soaked voice and penchant for wearing his shirt wide open, he serves up the writers’ delicious one-liners and soliloquies. Julien re-teams with his Cyrano castmate, Caravan alum Courtenay Dobbie (Joan Henry), who plays Virtue as part Joni Mitchell, part Lady Gaga, with her strong voice, wry humour, and a spot-on sense of timing. Paul Braunstein, as dad Richard, is a rarity: a male multi-tasker who can wield a cell phone as well as a drum kit (yep, that’s him getting up there with the band to play) while making some memorable cameos as a murderer and a doctor. If that’s not a conundrum, I don’t know what is. The delightful Deborah Williams (of Mom’s The Word fame) plays mother Jane, whose dealings with her family
deliver one of the play’s most heartfelt moral dilemmas in the form of her howling, Alzheimer’s-ridden father, otherwise known as Grandpa “Pep Pep.” Scene stealer David Petersen, who is so funny you will need a bedpan, goes along for most of the ride in a wheelbarrow, pushed by his lovable and clueless Gameboy and caterpillar loving grandson William (Kyle Cameron). He’s a nerd with a cause who becomes a hero to cheer for. Meanwhile, his sister Sally, played by the energetic Evelyn Chew, has her own path to follow that sees her mixed up with some strange bedfellows, quite literally. And it would be remiss not to mention the true stars of this show, the farm’s equine crew: Luke and Jason, Nip and Tuck, Bjorgie, Nissa and Breezy, Shotgun and a beautiful white horse named Suzie who makes a rather celestial appearance as a unicorn ridden by an angel near the end of the play. Heaven can’t wait. Everyone runs nightly, except Monday, until Aug. 22 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller box office, at 549-7469, www.ticketseller.ca.

Guitar camps strike a chord
KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
It takes more than slinging a guitar strap across your shoulder and whacking at the strings to become a guitar hero. Those wanting to slide up the frets like Eric Clapton, shred like Slash, or finger pick like Paco de Lucia need to start somewhere, and playing an actual instrument, instead of a computer animated game in your home rec room, can really help. Lance Carr, known also as Gitano Lanza, the flamenco guitarist at Vernon’s Los Huesos restaurant, is all for placing guitars in people’s hands and allowing them to create music in all its forms. Having just wrapped up a beginner guitar camp for all ages last week, he starts up a flamenco guitar class this week, where students will gather at the Music Shoppe Education Centre to live, breathe and play their guitars. Basic technique and some experience is helpful for those guitarists in the flamenco group, says Carr, who played in a classical guitar quartet at university, but is mostly self-taught in the Spanish style that involves finger picking, fast strumming techniques and open tuning. “When I was taking lessons in Vernon, I asked people to show me what they could (about flamenco.) At university, not many knew much about it, so I mostly learned from DVDs and books such

The flamenco guitar group takes place Wednesday to Friday from 9 a.m. to noon at the Music Shoppe Education Centre in Vernon. The next beginner guitar camp is Aug. 23, 24 and 25 from 9 a.m. to noon, also at the Music Shoppe. “They are learning basic technique, and how to read guitar music, tablature and reading chords,” said Carr about the camp. “They get a good dose in nine hours on how to figure it out and play guitar.” Once the basics are covered, Carr also
brings in music for his students to play, from the power chords of a Green Day song, to some easy jazz and blues, to AC/DC. “I try to keep it modern,” said Carr. “They do the different guitar parts, from lead to modern, and they learn to jam with each other. “One of the cool things about the beginner’s camp is that they study from the RGT Grade 1 exam, which is from the U.K. They can take the exams, which are more rock based, that are endorsed by musicians such as David Gilmour and Paul McCartney.” Space is still available in both the flamenco and beginner groups. To register or for more information, contact Carr at 250-309-4098, or e-mail gitanolanza@ gmail.com.

t the Performing Arts Centre, we’re midway through a block of maintenance and repairs with any number of things from light bulbs to carpeting being changed out, storage closets being overhauled and new equipment being installed. In a season where most of us love spending time outdoors, it’s great to see work being done that will continue to make the centre a Brian van Wensem beautiful facility to attend throughout the year. The doors will once again be open to the public Aug. 5 when you’ll have a chance to see one of Canada’s finest choirs. The Toronto Welsh Male Voice Choir performs at 7:30 p.m. with a repertoire that dates back to the centuries-old Welsh traditional choral music. Their cross-country tour marks the choir’s 15th anniversary and tickets can be purchased through the Ticket Seller by calling 549SHOW (7469). Until then, there are all sorts of outdoor events happening around the valley. While I don’t have space to include a comprehensive calendar, make sure to check out at least these three top-notch outdoor events: Caravan Farm Theatre’s
Adams hits the road KELOWNA —Bryan Adams brings his tour, The Road To The PNE, to Kelowna’s Prospera Place Aug. 19. As one of Canada’s best-known musical ambassadors, Adams has spent the last three decades making history. He has sold over 65 million records, toured six continents and achieved number one status in over 40 countries around the world. With hits such as Run to You, Cuts Like A Knife, Summer of ‘69, Kids Wanna Rock, Can’t Stop This Thing We’ve Started, (Everything I Do) I Do It For You, Open Road and Thought I’d Seen Everything, Adams’ status as one of the great songwriters of our time has been solidified. Tickets are now on sale from LiveNation.com, the Prospera box office or call 250-762-5050.

This night of theatre takes your moral compass for a spin as you’re whisked through the scenes in a truly unique and beautiful setting. Tickets and show times are available at the Ticket Seller by calling 549-SHOW (7469) or online at www.ticketseller.ca. The Komasket Music Festival starts up Friday, and what could be a better way to spend a long weekend than swimming, camping and listening to the more than 50 exciting acts coming to this year’s event. Tickets are still available for this family-friendly festival from the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). Check out the Komasket Music Festival’s website at www.komasketmusicfestival.com for directions and more information.

Day and weekend Passes can be purchased through the Ticket Seller at 549-SHOW (7469). Enjoy the shows!
Capsule Comments with
MARCIA BELEY A new therapy to treat stroke and cardiac arrest victims is currently being studied. It’s called therapeutic cooling where the body is cooled to 34˚ C as soon as possible after the attack. Survival rates are increased and fuller recovery after the stroke is also increased. It looks encouraging! Gout affects certain joints in the body causing almost unbearable pain. It primarily affects men and is not caused by excessive eating, drinking and obesity. Gout is caused by too much uric acid circulating in the blood stream and being deposited in the joints and forms crystals. Some foods contain high purine content however only 10% of all uric acid in our bodies comes from diet. Purines are precursors of uric acid. There are good drugs available to prevent attacks. As of March 31, 2010, most Natural Health Products (NHP) will have an identiﬁcation number on the label. This label is provided by Health Canada to indicate that the product is safe and the manufacturer is not making any claims on the label that haven’t been scientiﬁcally proven. This identiﬁcation program is designed to protect the public and not to restrict access to natural products. If you are pregnant, you can still use DEET-containing insect repellents. There is no evidence that using DEET will harm the fetus. If you are breast feeding, it is also safe. There are so many products on the market to treat or prevent summer maladies. Let our pharmacists help you make the right choice.

what happens when the troops burrow into the subconsciousness of business hotshot Cillian Murphy (Batman Begins). Dreams get piled on top of dreams, each level darker, weirder and more dangerous than the rest. And with Cobb battling a few demons (his wife, played by Marion Cotillard, keeps showing up to seemingly sabotage the proceedings), there’s a lot of emotional weight to this ride as well. Inception is a very beautiful, very elaborate and very heavy piece of work. And while elements of projects like The Matrix, Nolan’s own Memento, and even DiCaprio’s last picture, the underrated Shutter Island, seem evident, it’s safe to say that this is a completely original film.

Silver Star hitting the old dusty trail Morning Star Staff
If the success of the winter sleigh ride season is any indication, then summer should be a breeze for Silver Star Trail Rides. Owners Jadranka Delisimunovic and her husband, Joe, have been entertaining passengers with their quaint sleigh rides around Silver Star village and to the Wild Horseman’s Cabin. It’s hard not to fall in love with winter when you’re being drawn in a sleigh through the snow-covered trees at the resort. Inside the cabin, hot chocolate, cookies, and delicious home-cooked meals fill the senses with visions of days gone by. So the leap to bring trail rides to Silver Star in the summer seemed like a natural fit. “We’re horse people and just love to ride,” said Jadranka, while she took a moment from her busy schedule to feed the stable’s latest edition to the fold, Star. The brown and white foal is just a couple weeks old, and it will be a year before it can join the other 10 horses at Silver Star Trail Rides. “All the horses we use have a great disposition and are fantastic for trail rides. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never ridden before, we can guide you through the basic steps you need to get out and have fun on the trails,” said Jadranka. Silver Star Trail Rides offers one-hour and two-hour rides, as well as group rides that include a barbecue at the Wild Horseman’s Cabin. All tours are booked through Ski Dazzle, located in the village of Silver Star. All tours leave parking lot E, just a few minutes west of the village near the Ridge sub-divsion. Jadranka ensures her guides make rid-

Once out into the forest, it’s through the woods and over to The Wild Horseman’s Cabin and beyond. The adventures take place on what serves as the cross country ski trails in the winter. Alex Dyck, a true cowboy in every sense
of the word, helps lead some of the tours. “It’s quite a nice place to ride. There’s great views of the valley below and the temperature is quite cool in the trees,” said Dyck. “We meet a lot of deer out here.” Dyck also brings his dog Butch, a boarder collie, on the trip, for added safety.
“He’s always the happiest one on the trail rides. I think he loves to work more than I do ride, and that’s saying something.” Silver Star Trail Rides is open seven days a week until September 19. One-hour rides are $45, and two-hour rides are $80.
New retirement facility underway in Armstrong Morning Star Staff
The ground has broken on a new retirement home in Armstrong. Caretenders Inc. has announced it concluded the purchase of the City of Armstrong’s Haugen Avenue site, and that it will proceed with the construction of Heaton Place. “The City of Armstrong is extremely pleased to see the Heaton Place project proceed, and to have 76 units of seniors housing made available to our community,” said Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper. Heaton Place, a retirement residence for seniors, will be a 77-unit strata-lot development which will be comprised of 76 residential lots and one commercial lot. The residential lots will be a mix of 16 two-bedroom suites (approximately 1,100 square-feet) and 60 onebedroom suites (approximately 685 square-feet) that will come equipped with window coverings, appliances, and carpeting. These lots will be available for purchase or rent. The commercial strata lot, which will be operated and managed by Caretenders Inc., will house the common areas and amenity space integral to this unique community. It will include such things as recreational and activity space, lounges, a dining room, a commercial kitchen, a wellness centre, a salon, as well as administrative offices.
Each strata owner or renter will enjoy a mandatory service package which includes: weekly housekeeping, laundering of bed and bath linens, breakfast and dinner daily in the dining room, scheduled snacks and refreshments, planned activities and social events, 24-hour electronic wireless monitoring, and the security stemming from an environment with 24-hour staffing and the most current
“The city of Armstrong is extremely pleased” — Chris Pieper fire and safety systems. By purchasing a strata lot, residential owners at Heaton Place preserve their wealth through real estate ownership, while at the same time, save approximately 50 per cent of the monthly fees they might otherwise pay in rental properties of a similar quality. The facility is designed for independent seniors, but occupants with stable health concerns will be able to avail themselves of limited assisted living services, if required. These services, available at an additional cost, could include the monitoring of medications, bathing, ambula-
tion, and personal grooming assistance. The wellness centre is intended to keep occupants educated and abreast of health issues common to an aging population, and is intended to serve as a location where area and local service providers can deliver their services on-site to the facility population. Such services might include routine medical examinations, podiatry services, or other home health services. “Thus, we have adopted the slogan, enhance your lifestyle, preserve your wealth,” said Alex Miller, vice president of Caretenders Inc. The City of Armstrong will use the proceeds from the sale of their land to purchase six one-bedroom residential strata lots in the development upon the completion of construction. “Although specific details have not been finalized on how this program will work, it is the city’s intention to make these suites available to qualifying residents of the City of Armstrong, who do not have the capital resources available to purchase a strata lot in the development, but who have the available monthly income to pay rent and the monthly service fees,” said Pieper. The $18.8-million project is anticipated to be completed in late 2011. With an extensive and expanding interest list, potential buyers are encouraged to purchase at preconstruction pricing to avoid possible price increases, and to ensure the best suite selection.

Valley First appoints new manager Morning Star Staff
Valley First president Paulette Rennie has announced that Ken Britton has been appointed branch manager of Valley First’s Armstrong branch. “Ken is a welcome addition to the Valley First team and brings with him over 30 years experience in the financial services industry,” says Rennie. “He has the skills needed to lead our Armstrong branch and with his member focus, Ken is a great fit for the branch as well as an excellent addition to our management team.” The Armstrong branch, located at 2575 Patterson Ave., has served the residents of Armstrong and its surrounding areas as part of Valley First since Valley First’s 2001 amalgamation with the Armstrong Spallumcheen Savings and Credit Union.

Starbucks pledges to go green Morning Star Staff
Starbucks Canada is asking Canadians to join them to pledge to do some green this summer as part of the company’s support for Evergreen’s stewardship and restoration program. The program brings people together with nature to restore, protect and steward public green spaces across the country. Consumers who make a formal pledge at www.facebook.com/starbuckscanada to devote time to green their community and inspire others to do the same will receive a free tall cup of Pike’s Place roast at participating Starbucks locations across Canada. The pledge to do some green initiative is part of a new level of partnership between Starbucks and Evergreen building on a sevenyear relationship that has included Starbucks support for Evergreen’s Vancouver Earth Day event. Starbucks also directly supported many of Evergreen’s stewardship and restoration projects and provided them with a Youth Action Grant to assist in helping young people from low income groups in Toronto and Vancouver to develop green-related training and employment skills. “This partnership complements the ongoing efforts of Starbucks to do business responsibly and to take care
of the communities where we do business,” said Colette Bennett, marketing manager with Starbucks Coffee Canada. “We are proud to be partnering with Evergreen as an extension of this commitment and in support of the work they are doing to green communities across Canada.” This year’s partnership also includes a
commitment by 600 Starbucks partners (employees) to contribute at least 2,000 hours at six launch events across the country to get their hands dirty and assist Evergreen in a variety of stewardship and restoration activities, including planting and grounds maintenance. “One of our goals as an organization is to create a sustainable society where people and

businesses can live in harmony with, and contribute meaningfully, to their local environment,” said Stewart Chisholm, Common Grounds program director for Evergreen. “Partnerships such as this are integral to the continued success of Evergreen and our ability to support community-driven efforts that make our communities more livable.” During your lunch break, grab a brown bag lunch and hurry over to enjoy the fun!

Special To The Morning Star
ALBERTA — “I can’t believe I’m doing this.” My husband is grimacing as he tries to empty the sewage, known in RV terminology as “black water,” into a dumping station at an Albertan RV camp. I’m marveling at the fact that he’s hardly complained, even after driving our rented RV for hours along Alberta’s highways, a process he likens to pushing a bathtub uphill. The RV is our proposed solution to the economic recession: a relatively cheap way to take a family of six out west to experience the Canadian Badlands, home to the greatest number of dinosaur fossils on earth. Our goal is to encourage the kids’ interest in dinosaurs with an educational vacation, and on an economic level, to try a more luxurious version of camping without breaking the budget. But try squeezing six people into a space not much larger than an average bathroom and you’re bound to feel a little claustrophobic. Now add bad directions that accumulate unwanted hours on a long journey and a torrential downpour once you reach your destination, and what you get easily approaches the definition of a vacation gone wrong. But it’s how you look at the situation that defines your interpretation, and early evening in the Dinosaur Provincial Park in eastern Alberta, this is what I was mulling over. We’d arrived with frayed nerves after a seemingly never-ending drive, coming just in time for a quick dinner of grilled cheese at the park concession, the only eatery for miles. A two-hour bus tour of the park had ended just as the rain drenched this dusty

Still, we were in a pretty unique spot, camping in a park that protects the remains of 75 million-year-old dinosaur
bones, and boasts 38 different dinosaur species, making it one of the largest collections of fossilized dinosaur remains in the world.

The Badlands are magnificent Continued from previous page
Out on tour with park rangers, it was clear that with every step we were treading on history, an ancient world carved into the majestic Badlands. And despite their unfortunate name, those Badlands are quite magnificent. Etched with the colours of time, these stratified mountains descend to the ground with cracked, dry thighs, embracing each other like a community of tightly knit giants. Time and wind have given many of their peaks the appearance of faces, and in the dusky grey of a summer thunderstorm, it is easy to see the silhouettes of prehistoric creatures staring straight at you. Add the rumbling thunder and you half expect to see a dinosaur round the corner. Today the land is a semi-arid desert, but back in the dinosaur heyday it was a beach on the cusp of the Bearpaw Sea, a lush landscape that was a clear favorite among Hadrosaurids, or duck-billed dino-

At Horsethief Canyon, on the outskirts of Drumheller, the Badlands are laid bare from a high precipice. saurs, whose fossils are now found here in abundance. “This one was the size of our bus,” our guide says as she points to the virtually intact fossil of one. Excavated in the late 1960s, this Hadrosaurid is curled up in an embryonic pose, leading scientists to hypothesize that it drowned by falling in a river, its remains quickly
protected by the layers of sandstone and mudstone that accumulated on top of it. Dinosaur Provincial Park is a veritable bonebed, an 80-square-kilometer stretch of remote Albertan soil that’s richer in dino bone than anywhere else in the world. To truly understand its significance we drive 90 minutes northwest to
Drumheller, home to the Royal Tyrrell Museum. The crown jewel of this town of 10,000, the Royal Tyrrell is the only Canadian museum devoted exclusively to paleontology and its exhibits are riveting. There are the recreated figures of the dinosaurs that testify to their immensity, and the opportunity to peek into the laborato-
ries of technicians who are patiently chipping away at rock surrounding newly found fossils. Hands-on displays help kids understand concepts like continental drift and how fossils form. And a movie introduces visitors to the museum’s scientists, who describe their passion for the work and its relevance today. Tucked away in an RV park a few minutes from the town of Drumheller, we sit around a camp fire roasting marshmallows while the kids find instant playmates in the community of RVers around us. It’s one of those rare moments of family beauty, when the whining has stopped and everyone is happily engaged. Yes, this is a far cry from a luxury cruise. But sometimes the road less traveled yields unexpected adventure. This RV road trip is one of those times. Lauren Kramer is with Travel Writers’ Tales, an independent travel article syndicate.

A visitor to the Bulloch House in Warm Springs, Ga. gets ready to tuck into a home-cooked meal. Built in 1893, the Queen Anne style home is typical of those built for middle to upper middle income Georigans between 1859 and the ‘20s. The Bulloch House is the place to go for fried green tomatoes, pulleybones, butter roles and “the best caramel cake in the South.” For more details, see www.thebullochhouse.com

The heart of Montreal QUEBEC — Unabashedly forward, delectable and hip, it keeps the Sabbath, eats Greek, dances Salsa and shouts Forza Azzurri. Boulevard SaintLaurent, known as “the Main” to aficionados, is a city within a city. Numerous communities — Jewish, Italian, Greek and Portuguese, to name the principal ones — are found in this true cradle of diversity in Montréal. Boulevard Saint-Laurent has been the gateway to Québec for thousands of immigrants searching for a better future. In 1996, the federal government designated this grand boulevard as a national historic site, thereby commemorating it as a sign of hope and an essential passage for newcomers. Eleven kilometres long, the Main crosses practically every important street, avenue and boulevard in Québec’s largest city. Running north-south and dividing the city into East and West, Montréal’s principal thoroughfare draws droves of people in search of its intense cultural life, hip restaurants, and friendly urban lifestyle. Also treasured by the artistic community, it has inspired such major writers as Mordecai Richler and Michel Tremblay, in The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz and Sainte-Carmen de la Main, respectively. Warm and welcoming, it is home both to essential services and to entertainment venues. In bygone days, it boasted a large concentration of places for a good time. From loose women to impossible love stories, the Main has always had a libertine reputation. As a part of town known for vice, where erotic shows, houses of debauchery, clandestine gam-
Morales is one of the fashion hot spots on the Main. ing houses and places to smoke all sorts of illegal products were established, it earned Montréal the nickname of “Sin City.” Today, the Main is also a delightful dance floor and outdoor market. When summer comes, it is a sure sign that great rejoicing and revelry are just around the corner. With the Grand Prix on the “Main,” Club “Main” and Mix’Arts, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate the uniqueness of Montréal’s queen of thoroughfares. Every year, from Rue Sherbrooke to Avenue du Mont-Royal, streets are blocked off to make way for “unmotorized” traffic. For all Montrealers, it is a true celebration! Music, food from all corners of the world, happy people and united colours — worthy of a Benetton commercial. The stage is set! Now for the merchants, giving their sales pitches like Romeo crying out his love for Juliette. There’s the soundtrack. For more information, go to www.bonjourquebec.com.

Bridge by Phillip Alder We have been looking at pre-emptive jump overcalls. Obviously, sometimes these bids backﬁre. You might push the opponents into a high-scoring contract that they would have missed in an uncontested auction. Or you might suffer a large penalty. But as you should win more on the roundabouts than you lose on the swings, keep preempting. In each example so far this week, the jump overcall has occurred directly over a one-level opening bid. However, you may also leap when both opponents have bid -- as in this deal. Discuss the bidding with your partner, including what you would do if South were the dealer.
South responded two hearts, a strong jump shift. Then West, despite being vulnerable, bid to the maximum because he knew his opponents could make at least a game. Live on the wild side when you have a good chance to disrupt your opponents. After four spades came back to South, he bid what he hoped he could make. He might have control-bid (cuebid) ﬁve spades to try to get to seven hearts opposite the heart ace and club ace-king. Against six hearts, West leads the club two to dummy’s queen. How should South continue? Because West preempted, then attacked in a side suit, he has led a singleton. (This should be
doubly clear because North bid clubs.) So, if declarer immediately plays a trump, East will win with his ace and give West a club ruff to defeat the contract. Instead, South must ﬁrst discard his second club on dummy’s spade ace. Then, with everything under control, he can lead a trump.

Weâ€™re happy to announce that DignityTM Memorial funeral homes are extending the pre-HST savings - but only for a limited time.
