Blaze reinforces need for ban RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Not everyone is getting the message about the wildfire threat. It’s believed that a flare or fireworks may have started a grass fire in the 8200 block of Okanagan Landing Road just after 11 p.m. Sunday. “If the wind was blowing as it usually does, we would have been into a major evacuation of homes,” said Ed Forslund, Okanagan Landing fire chief. The City of Vernon has prohibited fires of any size, including campfires, industrial burning, fireworks, tiki torches and burning barrels.
“It was a little scary for a bit.” — Ed Forslund
The ban applies to all areas of Vernon, including the Foothills, the Blue Jay subdivision, Predator Ridge, Canadian Lakeview Estates and Okanagan Landing. “No one should be lighting fireworks or tiki torches. There should be no open flame,” said Forslund.
The grass fire — which got to about 50 metres in size — was in steep terrain and access for the firefighters was extremely difficult. “It was a little scary for a bit,” said Forslund of the potential for the blaze to spread. “We had 16 guys that
worked really hard. They did a great job.” Campfires are banned across the entire North Okanagan because of the dry conditions. “We had a lot of patrollers out (looking for campfires) and most people were in compliance,” said Jeff Moore, a protection officer with the B.C. Forest Service. Moore says Forest Service crews are receiving public assistance. “People are as concerned as much as we are about fires,” he said. “If someone had a fire going, we were notified of it in short order.”
Moore is urging people to follow the rules and to be very cautious with cigarette butts and sparks from vehicles as fine fuels, such as needles, continue to dry out. A brief rain storm on Sunday did little to change the situation. “We’ve never dropped below the high danger rating,” said Moore. As of Tuesday, there have been 1,198 wildfires to date in B.C., including 172 in the Kamloops region, which also encompasses the North Okanagan. Most of the Interior fires are in the Cariboo and Lillooet areas.

A North Okanagan woman who got separated from two friends while floating on the Shuswap River was found cold, but safe and sound, Monday morning. The 42-year-old woman from the Armstrong/ Enderby area set off for a float in the river with another woman and a man at around 5 p.m. Sunday. After the trio got separated on the river, and the woman failed to materialize at a pre-arranged meeting spot, police were alerted at 11 p.m. “Vernon Search and Rescue, along with the RCMP, searched for the woman until about 4 a.m.,” said RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “She was located near Belvidere Park at daybreak.” The woman had apparently got out of the water and was trying to make her way to a road when police say she got disoriented in the bush. Wearing only her bathing suit, the woman spent a cold night huddled under a tree, then headed back towards the river at daybreak, where she was found. Other than some slight hypothermia, the woman was fine. “She was very lucky because she hadn’t prepared for a night in the outdoors,” said Molendyk. “She did a couple of things right and we ended up with a happy ending.”

News Cramped quarters put history â€˜at riskâ€™ RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Towers of boxes climb towards the ceiling. Shelves overflow with everything from shoes to reams of paper. Hangers buckle from the weight of military uniforms. Dismembered mannequin parts delicately balance one on top of the other. This cluttered and chaotic scene may be reminiscent of the TV hit Hoarders, but itâ€™s the reality at the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives. â€œThe way we have things stored right now, there are objects at risk,â€? said Ron Candy, curator. â€œAnd the items donâ€™t belong to us, they belong to the community. Weâ€™re just a repository for them.â€? The museum is 13,000-squarefeet in size, including 6,500 for exhibitions, 2,160 for storage and the remainder for operations. A lack of storage has been an issue for years, but the situation has recently become critical as the back room and the second floor swell â€” often forcing collectibles past the doors and into the exhibition hall. â€œStorage is just spilling out,â€? said June Mitchell, artifact registrar. â€œI donâ€™t know where to put things. Itâ€™s not a case of just cramming things in. They need to be stored properly.â€? But the ability to safeguard the integrity of artifacts, including some in fragile condition, becomes increasing more challenging with every acquisition. â€œItâ€™s absolute frustration. Where am I going to put this?â€? said Mitchell, of the question she asks herself every time something new comes in. â€œI try to create space but there isnâ€™t any left.â€? Case in point was a recent donation of first-edition bottles created at the now defunct Lavington glass plant. The boxes now sit pushed off into a corner. And then there was the contribution of argillite â€” eight suitcases and two trunks of the Haida
carved slate. â€œItâ€™s world class,â€? said Candy. â€œThe donor is insistent that the collection stay in Vernon. He wants it to be here because itâ€™s his home.â€? The museum has stringent criteria as to what items it will accept into the permanent collection, but a lack of room in storage is not a factor. â€œIf the museum is to represent the people who live here, we need to represent the lives of the people who live here and that includes
their interests,â€? said Candy, referring to the argillite. â€œWe donâ€™t want to be in a position where thereâ€™s an object thatâ€™s significant and we have to turn it away. We wonâ€™t get a second chance for it.â€? Thereâ€™s also the fact that history is fluid and every day that passes becomes part of the communityâ€™s collective history. Items are already being collected from the 1970s, and the 1980s will soon be the next focus. Itâ€™s through compiling artifacts

and presenting evolving exhibits that the museum reflects the community, insists Candy. â€œMy job is to hang on to the history of Greater Vernon and the people that live here,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™m not collecting for today, Iâ€™m collecting for 50 and 100 years from now. History doesnâ€™t stop.â€? The short-term solution is to move some artifacts into off-site storage, but Candy considers that a last resort. â€œIt creates issues of temperature and humidity, and then thereâ€™s

security concerns,â€? he said. Long-term, the present building could be expanded, but the ultimate goal is a purpose-built structure that meets the modern requirements for a museum, including climate control which helps with the preservation of artifacts. Candy is convinced residents would benefit from larger premises. â€œWe want to have more lectures and workshops,â€? he said. â€œBut as it is now, we have to keep a large floor area open for programs and thatâ€™s also precious display space. A lot of our time is spent shuffling items around.â€? Discussions about a new museum have been held over the years with the City of Vernon and the North Okanagan Regional District, and Candy has his theories on why nothing has happened. â€œItâ€™s a question of political will combined with whatâ€™s important to the community. Itâ€™s all about priorities,â€? he said. Buffy Baumbrough, a Vernon councillor and Greater Vernon Advisory Committee member, says there have been no recent talks about the future of the museum. â€œI am very aware of their concerns and I sat on their board for a period of time,â€? she said. Baumbrough believes any action on the museum may be complicated by a proposed restructuring of the Greater Vernon parks, recreation and culture function. â€œItâ€™s difficult to see where things go for the museum,â€? she said.

Traffic bogs down in Enderby ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Enderby Mayor Dee Wejr’s holiday Monday visit with her sister from Vernon should have been longer. Unfortunately, it took Wejr’s sister 45 minutes to arrive at her house from the Starlight Drive-In Theatre on Highway 97A, which is normally a five-minute trip. But unprecedented volumes of northbound traffic created lengthy delays and headaches for motorists. And there were no accidents that caused the waits. It was sheer traffic volume. “I also had a friend who stayed overnight, and she called me and
“Something needs to be done.” — Dee Wejr said heading home, the traffic was unbelievable. She’d never seen it like that,” said Wejr. “Something needs to be done or it’s going to be an ongoing problem.” The RCMP’s North Okanagan Traffic Services reported they had never seen traffic backed up to the drivein like that without an accident causing the delays.
Part of what leads to the traffic jam is people wanting to make lefthand turns off of the highway in the city. “With people turning left, there’s no way of getting out of traffic, and it’s been an issue for a long, long time,” said Wejr. “You get people lined up for the light and if that first car is turning left, nobody moves. The long weekend impacts
Change to Predator sign sought
us drastically.” Wejr believes ongoing four-laning of the roadway in Spallumcheen and Armstrong are contributing to the volume. “We’ve said for a long time, with all of the changes happening through Spallumcheen, and through Armstrong to Lansdowne Road, then what happens?
It becomes a bottleneck from Enderby to Sicamous,” said Wejr. Enderby’s traffic woes are one of the things Wejr and council members hope to talk over with Transportation Minister Shirley Bond during next month’s Union of B.C. Municipalities meeting in Whistler.
Predator Ridge and Sparkling Hill resorts want to improve signage at Bailey Road and Highway 97. Proposed are changes to the exist-
ing sign, reconstruction of four rock cairns and a new southbound sign. The North Okanagan Regional District board will consider the matter today.

RCMP are seeking public assistance after $40,000 in heavy machinery was stolen from an Oyama property. Between 1 p.m. July 29 and 9:30 a.m. July 30, a yellow 2003 John Deere excavator, valued at $33,000, was stole from a locked compound in the 15000 block of Oyama Lake Road. Also taken was a black 2007 PJ tandem axle trailer worth $7,000. “Both items were property of Burr Excavating,” said Cst.

Cucumbers $ 4/ 5.00 Fun Facts!
There’s nothing wrong with the common ﬁeld cucumber, but the English cucumber has it beat in several ways: It is generally sold wrapped in plastic to reduce water loss, and so is usually not waxed and therefore does not need peeling. Also, it is usually called seedless (which is an outright lie), but its seeds are much smaller and less prominent. It is the seeds in a cucumber that make it bitter, so a semi-seedless English cucumber is less likely to be bitter. It is more easily digested than the ﬁeld cucumber.

15 WATERFRONT LOTS! On Okanagan Lake, 15 minutes from Vernon
Inaugural patrol kept busy ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
The houseboat companies were right. The August long weekend is the busiest weekend for vessels in the Shuswap basin, which includes Mara Lake. The Shuswap Integrated Enforcement Unit will vouch for the statement. For the first time, the unit, made up of officials from the RCMP, conservation officers service, Department of Fisheries and Oceans and B.C. Parks, deployed 24-hour enforcement on Shuswap area lakes over the holiday weekend. Eight marked vessels and several unmarked boats patrolled the waters from 2 p.m. Friday to 2 p.m. Monday. “We checked 246 boats, and of those 246, only four vessels were totally compliant,” said North Okanagan con-
“We checked 246 boats.” — Josh Lockwood servation officer Josh Lockwood, who took part in the patrol. Over the long weekend, officers issued $16,400 worth of ticket violations, and issued warning that would have pocketed another $16,800, so, in essence, there was the potential for $33,200 in fines on Shuswap and Mara lakes. Lockwood released the enforcement unit’s statistics from the weekend on Tuesday. Among the numbers were 87 boats towed to shore for having safety deficiencies. There were 36 fishing violations, one drug paraphernalia seizure, two foreshore develop-
ment damage charges, two careless operators of vessels, several charges of towing without a spotter and a handful of no operator cards and no life jackets on board. A law enforcement vessel was set up at Cinnamousin Narrows in Sicamous for the weekend, operating 24 hours a day, and that vessel handled 11 calls for service. There were two missing boaters, both found safely, two campfire complaints, two noise complaints, two foreshore development damage calls and two impaired boater reports. One boater also needed assistance after
losing a finger between two boats. There were no accidents or fatalities during the patrol, something that may become more routine. “I think it well,” said Lockwood. “Depending on operational dollars and commitment from the agencies, we will probably explore the opportunity to do this more.” Traffic on the lakes was heavy. Lockwood reported there were 97 houseboats at Nielsen Beach, north of Cinnamousin Narrows. Three houseboats were evicted from a provincial park because of noise violations, and those houseboat operators will not get their deposits back due to the eviction. Four groups were spoken to for having started campfires. Three of the groups were given warnings
Police officers hand out 183 tickets ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Long weekends are supposed to be for relaxing. For many in the North Okanagan, it was a time to be in a hurry. The RCMP’s North Okanagan Traffic Services (NOTS) spent the long weekend patrolling area highways, with a big focus being on Highway 97 between the Kalamalka Lake lookout and Oyama. “We had two officers working Friday, three each on Saturday and Sunday and four on Monday,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk. “The officers wrote 183 violation tickets which were predominantly for speeding.” There were 20 seatbelt violations written up over the long weekend, and RCMP also arrested two impaired drivers. Both blew more than twice the legal limit. NOTS members also had a chance to work with CN Rail police, focusing on area train crossings for a couple of days last week. Police wrote 52 violation tickets and issued five warnings. The majority of tickets were for motor-
ists failing to stop at a crossing, along with seatbelt and cell phone violations.

Cultural vision lacking
t was interesting to hear a report to Vernon council last week about the city’s tourism function. Among its priorities is strengthening the tourism product and enhancing the experience for visitors. The report also specified the importance of arts and culture in ensuring that people stop here and drop a few bucks. That was followed the next day by Greater Vernon officials discussing changes to the parks, recreation and culture service, and concerns were expressed that culture has taken a back seat in the talks. “We don’t want that part left as an orphan. We Richard Rolke want to make sure they’re funded,” said Maria Besso, a Coldstream councillor. But all of this is hollow rhetoric when reality is actually considered. Go to the museum and you will find a goat trail carved around exhibits stacked here, there and everywhere because space is limited. And behind the scenes, the situation is even worse as storage has gone beyond capacity. That means our heritage is being kept in less than ideal conditions and things will continue to escalate as the collection grows (and as the museum’s mandate is to reflect our past, new items will be acquired). A few blocks away, things aren’t any better at the public art gallery in the less than charming parkade building. Exhibition space is small and the amount of storage is appalling. Almost like a broken record, gallery officials have told the powers-that-be in Greater Vernon that the current 6,200-square-foot facility should be replaced by a 16,000-square-foot building with 16-foot-high ceilings. Climate control is not only needed to safeguard the integrity of the art, but federal policies require it for large, national travelling exhibits. The crunch could really come in 2015 when the gallery hosts the Okanagan Print Triennial.

In all likelihood, the present site won’t be able to accommodate the activities and spectators at the national exhibition on printmaking. The museum could also use about double the space, and climate control, but just as with the gallery, representatives from the museum have been ignored by the politicians and the bureaucrats. And that’s unfortunate when you consider what’s happening in other places like Grand Forks. Faced with the provincial government abandoning the community’s stately court house a few years ago, the City of Grand Forks acted decisively and turned the structure into an art gallery. There are four large exhibit spaces and a gift shop, as well as room for museum artifacts and the tourism information centre. Now of course Grand Forks had the building, but more importantly, it had the vision. Not only has the gallery fostered the arts in the Boundary country, but it has given visitors one more reason to stop. Back in Greater Vernon, it wouldn’t take much to get the cultural scene on track. There is land — the city-owned former Coldstream Hotel site — and numerous designs and plans have been done on a future art gallery and museum. All that’s really required is the money, but if the politicians were actually enthusiastic and sold the vision to the public, the finances would take care of themselves. If Greater Vernon is to truly become a destination people mark on their holiday schedules, and not just somewhere to stop for gas and a burger, then the product must be strengthened and the experience enhanced for visitors. Yes it will cost taxpayers money, but the returns could be significant, particularly since cultural tourism is high on the list of things to do among the growing and generally financially stable baby boomer crowd. Investors also look at amenities when considering communities to move to. The time for rhetoric is long past due, and our local politicians must finally step up to the plate.
Privacy is a growing concern for all Canadians, especially in the face of global terrorism worries, travel restrictions and new technology devices like the full body scanners that have been installed at several Canadian airports. As we make our way through daily lives that now include social media, smart phones and providing passwords for everything from banking to accessing our own voice mail — and heeding warnings to use caution when giving out private information — it’s no wonder we question the government’s regular census data collection. If you’ve ever had to fill out the long-form version of the census, you’ll know it not only takes a lot of time, but asks dozens of very personal questions, including work hours, income levels and marital status. There were 53 questions on the long form of the 2006 census. The short form had only eight questions. Mary Agnes Welch, Canadian Association of Journalists president, says journalists use census data to help Canadians understand their communities. And journalists are not alone in using census data for good reasons. We frequently see organizations, businesses and school boards using the numbers in order to plan for the future. As much as we value our privacy and do our best to protect our personal information from those who would use it for illegal or other nefarious reasons, let’s hope we can trust our federal government to protect census data, both previously and yet-to-be collected, from those who would abuse it. Clean up the long-form? Certainly. Throw it out altogether? Show us some data to back that decision up. — Black Press

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
On the wrong track
s a longtime resident of Vernon, I believe the citizens and council are once again showing myopia towards heritage values. When I think of the race track, I am struck by the similarity between it and the SS Sicamous. For those who may not be aware, the city had the opportunity to purchase the SS Sicamous from the CPR for $1 but could not see the long-term value. I don't pretend to know the financial value of the vessel to Penticton, but what a great addition the sternwheeler would be to Paddlewheel Park if the city then had the foresight to make the purchase. Vernon has long had a history of ignoring heritage values going as far back as the scout hall, the original Vernon Lodge, the Rolston House, Hochelaga — the Bank of Montreal manager's residence — and perhaps better known are the Bank of Montreal and the post office. As I understand it, we very nearly lost the courthouse. Neither the city nor NORD appeared to show much interest in the Polson Park grandstand until it was gone. I applaud the city for its efforts on behalf of O'Keefe TRAFFIC TALK In a recent issue, a concerned citizen talked about the problems with a bypass highway through the BX. I realize a bypass, no matter what, it is going to have a negative affect on some citizens no matter where the chosen location is. In the meantime is there a reason why the southbound traffic light at Highway 97 and 43rd Avenue does not have an extra seven to 10 seconds of green light? Why are the traffic lights on 27th Street and 32nd Avenue not timed to allow the traffic to move through town, eliminate left turns, accept at advanced arrows. I find it very frustrating to stop and smell the fumes three or more times simply to drive through Vernon. If Kamloops and Kelowna can do this, why can't Vernon? This may not be a long-term solution but it sure would help. Perhaps in the future, we can build a highway directly above 32nd Street to avoid the land purchases involved in a bypass. B. Thor WATER WOES Greater Vernon's water utility is spending millions on the Duteau
Ranch, but do not understand why they cannot see, a least, a similar value to the community in maintaining the race track. If we look at it from a different point of view — not just next year but perhaps 25 or even 50 years from now — then does it not seem to have greater merit than just needing a few more playing fields today? If I were a promoter, I could probably dream up all kinds of ideas to help preserve this piece of our heritage. Where is Anna Cail when we need her? It is not just the facility, but the facility in its present location that makes worth all the consideration we can give. I believe playing fields will come and go, but I do not believe the same can be said for this pioneer equestrian facility. A note of clarification on a recent article that indicated that Kin Track was the oldest in Canada. I have not checked, but I believe it is the second oldest, next to Woodbine in Toronto. But it is still a testament to the foresight of our forebears. Mel Garbutt
Creek treatment plant, which has a very limited water source. My question is; has any effort been spent towards expanding the source by diverting some of the creeks in the Bluenose Mountain area, which flow towards Mabel Lake, towards the Duteau Creek? Or building a canal from the Shuswap River: in the Sugar Lake area, towards Duteau Creek? I believe it was in the 1970s when a mayor suggested we build this canal. Apparently it could be done quite easily. We have all seen said creeks and the Shuswap River spring flooding causing damage to property in the Lumby area, as well as downstream in the Shuswap. This diversion may mitigate this damage. As you know, water diversion is not new technology. In times before Christ, the Greeks and Romans built aqueducts to bring water to their cities and farmland irrigation. One of the largest is from the Colorado River, feeding areas in Utah, Arizona, California and even L.A. By the time the Colorado reaches Mexico, it is but a trickle. Now some of the neighbouring countries of the African Nile are trying to tap into this source. I realize either of these diver-
sions would take statesmanship and long-term commitment, also the backing of the whole Okanagan area, which would all benefit, in the long run. Canadians are great protectors of their turf, proven by the fact we have free trade with many countries in the world but do not have free trade between our provinces. If this diversion was accomplished, maybe people would be able to fill their pools! Michael deTourdonnet ALL SMILES I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made donations to help me pay for my teeth. Everyone’s support has helped me enjoy life to the fullest. I can actually smile again without feeling embarrassed. The first person I would like to thank is Laine Lowe (community dental hygienist). If it wasn’t for Laine’s support throughout the past weeks, I would not have had my teeth pulled. I also want to give a huge thank you to Dr. Regehr for his kind heart for pulling out my teeth. Words cannot express how much his generosity means to me. Dr. Regehr gave me a better quality of life. I have no more pain, as
well, I feel much healthier, with a lot more energy. I want to thank all of my coworkers at Noric House for all their donations and time spent on fundraising activities. It means so much to me. I want to thank my best friend, Jennifer Smith, who also donated towards getting my dentures. Jennifer is the kindest, most supportive person I know. I also want to thank The Morning Star and Cara Brady, who wrote the article, and Alison Nicholls, who made the dentures. As well, I want to thank everybody from my hometown Lumby who donated and organized fundraisers to help myself and the lowincome dental clinic. Not only thanking people who helped me, I want to thank all the people who have made donations to the low-income dental clinic. All of the donations that have been received will help thousands of families who cannot afford regular dental care with lower dental fees. The dental clinic is going to be a brand new beginning for Vernon and surrounding areas. I also want to thank all of the people I don’t know who donated for the dental clinic and me. It means the world to me. I hope one day I will be able to give back a
favour to someone else in need of some kind of pain relief, because I know how much it has improved my life, and I would like to help improve someone else’s future. Thank you again for everyone’s support. Amber Peters

North Westside urged to conserve water Morning Star Staff
With the hot, dry conditions, the Central Okanagan Regional District is asking North Westside Road residents to conserve water. This will help to ensure adequate water is available for both domestic use and fire protection. By practicing good water conservation measures, reservoirs can be replenished ensuring there’s enough water for everyone. “Customers of the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates water systems are reminded that as of June 15 each year, stage two water restrictions are in effect,” said Bruce Smith, communications co-ordinator. “That restricts outdoor watering to two days each week.” CORD customers with even-numbered addresses may irrigate outdoors on Saturday and Tuesday while those with odd addresses may only water on Sunday and Wednesday. Under the regional district water bylaw, customers with an automated irrigation system may only water if needed on their allotted day between midnight and 6 a.m., while people with manual outdoor irrigation must restrict their watering if needed, to between 6 and 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. and midnight on their respective irrigation day. “If you don’t need to water outdoors on your allotted day or time period, please do not waste water,” said Smith. “Regional district water customers of
the Killiney Beach and Westshore Estates systems, along with private water utilities in the
boundary of the North Westside fire protection district, are reminded of the stage two water
restriction requirements to ensure that there is an adequate supply of water available for fire
protection needs.” For more tips on water conservation inside and outside their
home, North Westside residents can visit the regional district water system webpage at
regionaldistrict.com. Select Quick Links and go to the Water Systems menu options.

Exhibitions open at Vernon art gallery Morning Star Staff
Art abounds at the Vernon Public Art Gallery with the opening of four new exhibitions. David Alexander’s Moving Targets: In Flux, Scott Bertram’s Unfixed, Brian Monteith’s Unfinished Business and Sookinchoot Youth Centre’s Seeing Oneself all open at the gallery with a reception Thursday. Alexander, a Lake Country-based landscape artist, has earned national and international acclaim for his work. His exhibition, Moving Targets: In Flux, consists of four distinct bodies of paintings produced between 1994 and 2010. This selection offers the viewer an insight into the process of his image development, said VPAG curator Lubos Culen. “The exhibition features several large-scale paintings and drawings that exemplify Alexander’s iconic, painterly approach to landscape painting,” he said. Included are a number of small-scale drawings and paintings produced directly at various sites in Canada including the high Arctic, Newfoundland, the Rockies, and B.C. Bertram is an Okanagan-born artist and a former graduate from the bachelor of fine arts program at UBC Okanagan who recently received his master’s degree in visual arts from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Bertram’s exhibition of abstract paintings consists of selections from two bodies of work that are concerned with the questions of representation and abstraction. “His approach to painting is reciprocal and combines strategies
of a controlled process in the paint delivery while allowing the chance and accident to occur,” said Culen. “The finished painting compositions are open ended for interpretation by the viewers and their meaning is inherently unfixed.” Monteith is a Vernonbased artist and art educator who has inspired many young people to pursue the practice and study of fine arts. His exhibition, Unfinished Business, is conceptually tied to his personal experience with his friend and their mutual love for motorcycles. As Monteith points out in his artist statement, the exhibition is a “tribute” to his friend and
marks a departure from his previous work that was focused on realistic portrayals in general. The new paintings retain a realistic quality, but the combination of translucent and opaque layers, and subtle gestural brush strokes of paint application give them an expressionistic appearance, he said. Vernon’s Sookinchoot Youth Centre is part of the Native Friendship Centre program designed to improve the quality of life for aboriginal and Métis people in an urban environment. Under the guidance of mentors Lorna McFarlane, Wayne LaRiviere, Mariel Belanger and coordinator Lynn Phelan, the par-

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Some of your nobler inclinations could turn out to be lucky ones for you. There is something good in it for you whenever you put yourself out for the sake of another. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Trust that your evaluations are superior to those of your adversaries, and you’ll end up being the dominating force. All you have to do is believe in yourself and all that is good. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Enjoy yourself with friends and leave all of your serious issues or problems behind you. It’ll serve as a burst of power within you that will carry over into your entire life. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Lady Luck will do whatever she can to help you sort out what is troubling in your life, and to put you on a good path. However, make sure you’re still doing your part to try all that you can to make this happen. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) For productive results when working with others, be a bit laid back and let them take the lead. Your common sense and adaptability will still keep you on the right track. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Even if others are pointing out that somehow you got the short end of a deal, you’ll know that you’re on the road to benefits and advantages, and you’ll be right. Continue to follow your instincts.
ARIES (March 21-April 19) Involvements with others could be better than usual, mostly because people in general are likely to react harmoniously with one another. It’ll be easy to handle most things calmly and politely. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Do a bit more than that what is expected of you and watch how much cooperation you suddenly get. Your efforts will be appreciated and rewarded in ways you would never expect. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Lack Luck will show up the minute you start putting forth some extra effort, especially where joint endeavors are concerned. Both your undertakings and relationships will do a lot better with her around. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Impediments that have acted like a monkey wrench in your affairs can now be handled easily. Don’t think of them as being a nuisance and they’ll disappear.

Time for a NEW …
Bridge by Phillip Alder George Canning, an English statesman who died in 1827, only 119 days after being appointed as prime minister (still the shortest reign), said, “Indecision and delays are the parents of failure.” That can be true in bridge -- as in this deal. How should the defenders play to defeat three notrump? North has only nine high-card points. When partner shows a strong, balanced hand, North would normally raise to two no-trump. Here, though, bidding three notrump is justiﬁed for two reasons. First, a one-notrump overcall is half a point stronger than a oneno-trump opening: a good 15 to a bad 18 instead of
15-17. And knowing where the missing points lie -- in the opener’s hand -- makes the declarer-play more accurate. The critical play, as is so often the case, occurs at trick one. East must not signal with his spade 10, encouraging partner to lead the suit again. If he does that, declarer will duck the trick, and what will West do next? He will be forced to shift to another suit. Then South has the time to dislodge both of East’s aces and gets home with an overtrick. East must not be indecisive or delay. He must overtake the spade queen with his king. This gives him the tempo over declarer.
Let’s assume South ducks. East plays another spade, gets in with his diamond ace, and drives out declarer’s second spade stopper. South can take only eight tricks before being forced to play a heart. East grabs his second ace and cashes the rest of his spades to defeat the contract.

Steckly laps up Dub win ROY CLISSOLD For The Morning Star
Scott Steckly of Milverton, Ont. was forced to have a lot of patience and confidence in the crew of the #22 Canadian Tire MotoMaster Dodge as he drove to victory in the A&W Cruisin' The Dub 300 Saturday night at MotoPlex Speedway. Steckly broke the jinx of having finished second place three times previously at the race track. He made four pit stops to fix his ill-handling car, making suspension adjustments and adding spring rubbers before ever making a stop for tires. "For the first two hundred or so laps the car didn't handle well and I had to be content with chasing the leaders," said Steckly, who won $10,500. However, on lap 236 Steckly finally managed to pass DJ Kennington's #17 Castrol Edge Dodge and go on for the win in a thrilling green-white checkered flag finish that had most of the 7,500 NASCAR fans on their feet. It was Steckly's first win in the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series in a year. Kennington, of St.Thomas, Ont., set a new track record in qualifying with a lap of 18.168 seconds for an average speed of 99.075 miles per hour. Kennington ran away from the field in the early stages of the race until the first yellow caution flag went out for debris on the track on lap 107. That enabled Steckly to close the big gap between him and Kennington. When the green flag waved on waved on lap 119, Kennington took the lead again, and Steckly was quickly passed by Barrie, Ontario's Mark Dilley in the #9 Rheem Dodge, and then by Don Thomson Jr., who took over third spot piloting the #4 Home Hardware Chevrolet, relegating Steckly to fourth Two more yellow caution flags flew on laps 128 when Joey McColm of Ajax, Ont. spun his WatchIt! Dodge in turn two, and again on lap 154 when Jason Hathaway made contact with the wall in turn two in his Snap-on Tools/Vortex Brake Pads Dodge. Several cars in the top-five traded places between the two cautions, but Kennington retained the lead. The biggest collision of the night took place on lap 175 when Pierre Bourque of Ottawa made contact in turn two with Ron Beauchamp Jr. The result was that Beauchamp's #60 Mopar/Mobil 1 Dodge got spun around and Bourque’s #00 Aaron's Dream Machine drove up onto the hood of the #60, destroying all of the front body panels of the #60, and nearly causing a rollover. "I have never been up in the air in a race car before, it was scary," said Bourque, who retired with a broken radiator. Beauchamp finished the race without front-end bodywork. The night of carnage in turn two continued as Trevor Seibert of Williams Lake, attempting to avoid the Bourque/Beauchamp collision, went headfirst into the turn two wall, destroying the front end of his Lake Excavating/EMCO Waterworks Dodge, which had to be towed. With all the front runners making pit stops

during the lap-175 collision, the leaders came out with Hathaway leading the pack followed by Kennington, Thomson Jr., Steckly and J.R. Fitzpatrick driving his Schick Hydro Chevrolet based out of Campbridge, Ont. Kennington was pressing Hathaway for the lead for several laps and got by to regain the lead on lap 218. Another caution flag was raised on lap 251 when John Gaunt got turned around in his North Carolina-based Rusty Wallace Racing Experience Dodge. This led to a restart with Kennington and Steckly side by side for the green flag, with Steckly taking the lead in turn two. Steckly and Kennington were bumper-tobumper and door-to-door lap after lap before Kennington eventually started losing ground. "I think it was my tires going away that allowed Scott to pull away and for Jason Hathaway to get by me," said Kennington. "It was pretty loose in the last session and wouldn't allow me to challenge Scott for the win." At the checkered flag in the $95,000 race, it was Steckly, Hathaway, Kennington, Thompson Jr. and Dilley rounding out the top five. Local favourites and brothers, Jim White of Kamloops and Jason White of Sun Peaks, had early retirements for mechanical problems in their A&W Chevrolets. In the NASCAR Canadian Tire Series championship standings after the Cruisin' The Dub 300, Fitzpatrick leads with 990 points followed by Kennington at 983, Steckly at 935 and Kerry Micks of Mt. Albert, Ont. with 890.

Sports Bradlee boosts West
Gators grab gold medal Morning Star Staff
Seven games in four days. Plenty of sore muscles and bumps and bruises. Smiles galore. The Vernon Whitehouse Mortgage Gators went hard and were rewarded with gold in the SPN National B Women's Slo-Pitch Championships Monday at Jaycee Park in Calgary. The Gators, who won the 2007 national D title on home turf, brushed back Cadman, Ont. 13-11 in a thrilling final Monday morning. Danielle Saddleman pitched a stellar seven innings for the Gators, who got three hits, including a home run, and three RBI from infielder Jodi McCall. Infielder Linda Castonguay went 3-for-4 with a triple and one RBI, while left fielder Paula Bifano was 4-for-4 and second baseman Andrea Smith was 2-for-3 and added four ribbies. "We got hard work and a solid team effort from everybody which contributed to the national title," said coach Mike Burke. Added coach Jerry Bifano: "Everyone battled as a team and competed at the top of their game with a positive attitude." In Sunday playoff action, the Gators stopped Cadman 17-12 and grounded the Abbotsford Commotion 13-5. Third baseman Pam Condie and infielder Lisa Payne each stroked dingers and finished with three RBI as the Whitehouse gang gonged Cadman. Payne had four hits on the day. McCall went 2-for-4 with a homer and two RBI, while Saddleman helped her own cause with three hits and two ribbies.
Morning Star Staff
Members of the Vernon White House Mortgage Gators celebrate their gold-medal performance at the SPN National B Women’s Slo-Pitch Championships last weekend at Jaycee Park in Calgary. Payne was 3-for-4 with a home run and three RBI as the Gators crushed the Commotion. Castonguay was 3-for-4, while McCall went 2-for-3 and knocked in two runs. In round-robin action in the five-team tournament, the Gators opened with a 12-8 victory over Cadman. Payne drove in three runs on three hits, while Betton brought in three runs on two hits and Condie went 3-for-4. Vernon then posted a 12-10 win over Alberta's Team 7 with Condie collecting three hits and three RBI and Castonguay supplying two hits and two RBI.
Smith provided three hits and two RBI as the Gators lost 19-13 to the Commotion. Outfielder Brandie Hunter went 2-for-3 with one RBI, while McCall, Condie and catcher/outfielder Nancy Lafreniere each drove in two runs. The Gators finished preliminary action by outlasting the Trail Express of Regina 12-9 with Denise Morrison going the distance on the hill. Catcher Jenn Thatcher went 3-for-4 with a triple, while left fielder Kelli Graham and Payne made excellent relays to Thatcher for close calls at home. Right fielder Michelle Embleton, who also served as the Gators' manager, and outfielder Vicki Hughes rounded out the Whitehouse roster.
Team West ended a five-year drought as they upended Team East on the final day of play to claim the Canadian Junior Golf Association Lipton Brisk Canada Cup at the Granite Golf Club in Stouffville, Ont. Amongst the eightperson Western squad was Vernon’s Bradlee Jones, who defeated Amin Ashkar of Guelph, Ont. on the 16th hole 4&2, picking up his second point of the week. Team East was leading the tournament 5-3 after the second round, and needed just three points to take their sixth straight title. However, the West swiped six of an available eight points to pull the comeback.

Camels boot Kickers Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels stopped the North Country Appraisals Kickers of Kelowna 3-1 in Capri Insurance Men's 45+ Soccer League action Monday night at Marshall Field #1. The Camels now share first place, at 14-1-1, with Penticton United, 2-0 winners over Salmon Arm at Parkinson 9 Field Monday night. The Kickers dipped to 13-2-1. Defender Jim Mottus moved up and converted a feed from Rob Hulstein with a super one-time volley from 20 yards out, for the Camels' first goal in the 20th minute. Hulstein, who hustled while also playing some midfield, earned the Heineken Man of the Match ahead of defender Neil McPhie. Midfielder Rod Trentini made it 2-0 seven minutes later, taking a pass from soon-to-be 50-yearold Al Murphy and going top shelf on Marty Vince from 18 yards out. Camels' star striker Gordie Howard sped around a defender down the left side and went low for his 21st goal of the year, just before the half. The Kickers, who sorely missed their leading scorer Greg Bevandick, battled back and got a nice early second-half tally from Chris Odermatt after some good build-up. In other action, Okanagan Spring Brewery clipped the Pushor Mitchell Advocates 1-0 at Mission 60 Sportsfield. The Wendy's Man of the Match for the Brewers
was Chris Nielsen, who had four great scoring chances only to be robbed by all-star Pushor goalie Chris Burkitt. Mattias Gohl scored for Spring (10-6) off a rebound five minutes into the second half. Mike Zuber recorded the shutout. Pushor dropped to 7-6-2. John Garner supplied two goals as the Vernon Silver Stars grounded the Rutland Spirit 5-0 at Mission 71. Dave Gould, on a sweet header, Tim Penaluna on a rocket toe punt, and Mark Hopkins also scored for the Stars (7-7-2). The Spirit are 0-16. Baxter's Pub Old Boys of Kelowna tripped up the Big O Tire Ogopogos 3-1 at Marshall Field #3. Playing without talented forwards Mark Wasylyk and Parm Kler, Big O filled one of the striker spots with Paul Hunter, who made a wise decision by blocking the Baxter's keeper shot and blasting it into the net to make it 1-1. Rob Ross had a few breakaways for the Ogopogos (3-9-4) but either the Baxter's keeper robbed him or his shots went just wide. Brad Conlin played his usual consistent wellplayed center half for Big O, whose keeper Yogi Kongsdorf made some key sprawling saves to keep the game tied for most of the game. Baxter's capitalized on a couple of penalty kicks and put the game away. Steve Frost, Lloyd Pendleton and Andy Walker supplied the offence for 5-9-2 Baxter's.

Blue Bombers pluck Green Morning Star Staff
Barely two seasons into his professional career, and James Green is already on his third home. The Winnipeg Blue Bombers added the defensive back to their practice roster Tuesday after he was released by the Edmonton Eskimos last month. Green, a former Canada West all-star with the University of Calgary Dinos, played high school football with the Fulton James Green
Maroons. The 27-year-old was drafted by the Toronto Argonauts in the third round (18th overall) of the 2009 CFL Canadian Draft. He appeared in every game for the Argos last season, primarily on special teams, and finished the year second on the team in special teams tackles with 19. He added a blocked punt. He was released by the Argos during this year’s training camp. He signed with Edmonton in July. The Bombers also added David McKoy, formerly of the Saskatchewan Roughriders. He was chosen ninth overall in the 2007 CFL Canadian Draft.

The Okanagan Sun used stingy defence to brush back the South Surrey Big Kahuna Rams 30-3 Saturday night in B.C. Football Conference action at the Kelowna Apple Bowl. The Sun (2-0) held the 0-2 Rams to 290 yards, including a meagre 51 yards on the ground. Cornerback Jesse Warawa jumpstarted the Sun when he picked off a pass and ran 30 yards for a touchdown. Warawa later in the half intercepted another pass from Surrey starter Marcus Fischer before he was pulled from the game before the first half ended. While the Okanagan defence dom-
inated, the offence again was plagued with inconsistency. Quarterback Bobby Davis managed to complete just 12 of 25 passes for 129 yards. He was also sacked three times. Davis led the Sun to a pair of first half touchdowns. Tore Tarcon capped off a drive with a two-yard TD run late in the opening quarter to put the Sun up 14-0. Tarcon then established a Sun record and tied a BCFC and CJFL record by scampering 109 yards on a quick hitter up the middle. He burst through a stacked front seven and outran the Rams’ secondary. The scamper came the first play after Warawa’s second interception.

John Penner, who celebrates his 101st birthday Aug. 4, loves his Lord, his family, his friends, community and has extended his help wherever it was needed over the years. Life wasn’t easy growing up in a small Mennonite village near the Dneiper River in what is now John Penner Ukraine. His family suffered religious persecution and was caught between opposing forces in the Russian Revolution. Penner was working on the farm driving four horses before he was in his teens. “For me being a little kid, it was kind of hard,” he said. “The Red Army came by our farm and we had to feed them. They ate all we had and there was nothing left when they were gone. Then the other army would come. My uncle and cousin were shot by soldiers while working in the field. I still remember my cousin’s face.” His brother was taken away by one of the armies, then released, and neighbours spied on each other with no one really knowing what was happening politically. When Penner was 14, the family took the desperate decision to come to Canada, leaving the village by ox cart to go to Latvia, then by boat to England and on to Quebec on the Empress of France. They settled near Winnipeg in 1923. Penner’s granddaughter, Pam Penner, has researched the family history and found out that while the family, like others, paid to come to Canada, they still owed money when they got here and the children who were old enough to work were sent to work to help pay the family debt. “My great-grandmother agreed to come to Canada to keep her children safe and to give them a better life but they were not able to be together as a family. Still, who knows what would have happened if they had stayed,” she said. Penner, who was one of a set of twins and had not been expected to live — his twin died before his second birthday — was always special to his mother, and he did his part to help the family. When he married in 1934, he did not want his wife, Kay, to have the hard life of a prairie farmer’s wife. They moved to Enderby — purchasing a house for $60 — in 1936 where he worked as a labourer and was on the crew that built the wooden Enderby bridge. He sometimes encountered discrimination and was called a Bolshevik because of his background but people who knew him came to trust and admire him. He was asked to keep working as a grader at a sawmill well into his 70s because there

Pam Penner remembers her grandparents growing a big garden which they would share with neighbours, helping anyone at church who needed help, always giving a ride to hitch hikers and sometimes bringing them home for a meal. “He played the guitar, mandolin and harmonica and he used to whistle hymns while he was working. He grew yellow roses for Grandma even though he didn’t care that much about flowers himself,” she said. “He says he isn’t smart because he doesn’t have a lot of education but he could calculate faster in his head than I could with a calculator. He speaks five languages, German, Low German, Russian, Ukrainian and English. He is always there to talk to us. There is so much about him that is pure, true, honest, humble, funny, strong, loving and faithful. I am so proud of him and so lucky to still have him here. We love him dearly.” Penner was known for his woodwork — making his own tools — and for being one of the founding members of Sunnybrae Bible Camp at Tappen. Many of his tools are now in the Enderby Museum. “Living this long,” said Penner thoughtfully, “you’re now friends with the children of your friends who are gone now. I always like to see them.” Penner cared for his wife when she had dementia, endearingly calling her his “little girlfriend.” He lived on his own until recently, gardening, working his workshop, reading his Bible daily, as well as keeping up his music. He has two children, five grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.

Keeping plants fed
great big thank-you to the Communities in Bloom group, which has done a fantastic job. At the time of writing this article, it has been very warm. I am not too comfortable at 35 degrees Celsius — I prefer about 25 degrees C. I am surprised to see the corn crop coming in so late, as in most years, Fred Lyall corn on the cob is ready by mid-July. I was told at the farmers’ market that Aug. 8 to 10 will be the earliest. I have had some calls from gardeners who are disappointed with their sweet pea crop. This is one crop that likes cooler weather, that you plant very early without fear of light frost; as soon as the blossoms are finished, remove the seed pods so you can stimulate more blossoms at a later date. I am asked by many new gardeners what to grow in shaded areas. In hanging baskets, try trailing begonias or fuchsias. I have had good success with trailing geraniums. Morning sun is OK for geraniums, but that

hot afternoon sun is not kind to many plants. In planters in shade, try the upright type of begonia or coleus. There are so many colours of coleus available and they can put out a great display. They are grown for the foliage as they do not have very attractive flowers. The most important thing about growing plants in baskets or planters is good growing medium. There are good planter mixes for sale at many garden centres. Get yourself a watersoluble fertilizer such as 15-30-15 and about twice a month, feed them with this material. People often ask me how much they should feed each plant. I add two heaped tablespoons to a sevenlitre watering can. That is enough to feed about eight hanging baskets, or 10 at the most. Once the foliage takes on a nice dark green colour after about three applications, that is probably all you need. Just remember that while some plant food is good, excess is not better. If you use a pH meter, a reading of about 6.3 to 6.5 is very good. I use 12-inch diameter baskets, as they hold almost double as much soil as a 10-inch basket. Be sure to water them regularly — do not let them dry out.

Fish suits the grill
ince my husband left earlier this week for his big fishing trip on the coast, I’ve had visions of mouth-watering dishes of salmon and halibut rolling through my brain (and they’d best be bringing me home some). Fish are a good change from barbecuing the more traditional meats; they’re extremely nutritious, and there are countless ways to prepare them. Salmon on the barbecue can be cooked whole, as fillets, steaks, kebabs, or even cut into longer strips and Cathi Litzenberger threaded onto wooden skewers. Everything from mayo, sour cream, lemon, garlic, onion, dill, curries, brown sugar, soy sauce, teriyaki, to mustards can be used in endless combinations to enhance its wonderful flavour. Because of its delicate flavour, halibut is best cooked with only a light mixture of enhancing substances; things like salt and pepper, lemon and a little garlic is nice, or top with a thin coating of sour cream or mayo, dill and a sprinkle of garlic powder; your choices are endless. Halibut is very versatile and can be substituted for chicken in many recipes. Today’s recipes include salmon fillets grilled with a light touch of curry and caraway seeds. The flavour is uniquely different and finishes with a fragrant golden crust. The halibut recipe can be used on steaks, fillets, or on a whole piece of fish. Enjoy.

Pagan pride celebrated Morning Star Staff
Okanagan Wiccans, Druids, Pagans, Witches, Heathens, Shamen, and members of many other earth-based faiths will gather to celebrate their Pagan pride Aug. 21. More than 100 gatherings around the world will join together in the world-wide celebration of Pagan and earth-based faiths. The Congregationalist Wiccan Association of BC and The Threads That Bind Us invite you to come and enjoy informative speakers and workshops, a Wiccan harvest ritual, live entertainment, and Pagan, metaphysical and “green” vendors. Bring a non-perishable food item to support the Vernon Food Bank, and get your Tarot cards read for your donation to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation’s Run for the Cure. Throughout the time of the harvest (August to October), people will join other Pagan pride celebrations in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, Campbell River, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto, Durham, Hamilton, Kingston, Kitchener and Waterloo, Sault Ste. Marie, Sudbury, London, 39 U.S. states, Germany, Italy, the U.K., the Czech Republic, Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Paraguay, Mexico and the Philippines. Sable Aradia, local coordinator and Witch, expects that the Okanagan event will draw somewhere between 50 to 150 participants between local Pagans and the curious. “The Pagan Pride Project was started in the U.S. in 1997 by Cecylyna Dewr and the Pagan Awareness League with a primary purpose of fighting the discrimination that often faces those who follow earth-based religions through education, charity and public awareness,” she said. Pagan Pride events include a public ritual in a Pagan tradition that is open to the public, a food drive in the spirit of thanksgiving and gratitude that is a part of most Pagan Autumn Equinox celebrations, and an invitation to the public and the media to speak to representatives in the Pagan community about what Pagan faiths are all about. The celebration and “food-raiser” takes place 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Cenotaph Park in Vernon. For more information, see http://paganprideokanagan.webs.com.
