Predator sign gets approval RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
ROGER KNOX/MORNING STAR
Cpl. Richard Gingras spends some time with his new partner, Maco, after having to retire his four-year partner Sultan (below), from the RCMP canine service because of an injury.
Police dog off the beat ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Only days into retirement, old habits die hard for RCMP member Badge 777. Sultan, a four-year-old German shepherd and part of the Vernon RCMP police dog services squad, was enjoying the long weekend and first days of retirement forced by injury, when he and his owner/handler, Cpl. Richard Gingras, were relaxing at the beach in Sicamous. “We were up their boating and I was walking the dog late at night when I noticed a guy by a vehicle,” said Gingras. “I noticed a broken window, and there were broken windows on some other cars. I thought the guy looked suspicious so I approached him. He saw my dog and decided to hang around, which is good because I didn’t want to have to run after him in my sandals.” Partners since the dog was eight-
weeks-old, Gingras and Sultan — the 777th RCMP dog, hence its badge number — have had their share of chases. Sultan has helped track down and nab some guys running after a growoperation was discovered, and the fourlegged member helped find a suicidal woman by sniffing out her track.
However, a degenerative disc in Sultan’s back required surgery, which Gingras was told could be about 50 to 60 per cent successful. Because the dog was relatively young, operating on Sultan was an easy decision to make. Unfortunately... “Last week I had to put him in the truck myself, and when he fell off the truck, that was it, it was time to retire him,” said Gingras, who will keep ownership of Sultan at his home. “I don’t want to ruin his entire life.” While Sultan settles into retirement – it won’t be easy as the dog’s ears perk up every time he hears a siren – Gingras is getting familiar with his new partner, Maco. The pair will be heading for training in Innisfail, Alta., site of the RCMP police dog training centre. “We’ll be going in September and we hope to be there for a month-anda-half,” said Gingras.
Any prospect that community divisions would reignite over a sign south of Vernon have fizzled. On Wednesday, a majority of the North Okanagan Regional District board approved proposed changes to the existing Predator Ridge sign at Bailey Road and Highway 97, and the addition of a new southbound identification sign. “They have done it tastefully,” said director Patrick Nicol. NORD’s response is a departure from 2000 when the sign was constructed without approval. The regional district, at the time, ordered that the sign be removed, and that led to widespread opposition from some politicians as well as residents. Ultimately, the sign was sanctioned by the Agricultural Land Commission and in November 2001, the board approved the sign if there were no lights, the Predator Ridge logo was not used and four rock cairns were Mike Gavinchuk removed. “The development variance permit was never issued presumably because the rock cairns removal or the lighting of the sign was not addressed,” states a current staff report. The ALC is being asked to allow lettering and symbol modifications to the existing sign, reconstruction of the cairns, construction of a new southbound sign and lighting on both signs. A development variance permit is also being sought from NORD to establish size requirements for both signs and to permit lighting. “All they want to do is rework the sign to reflect Sparkling Hill,” said director Wayne Lippert. Along with mentioning Predator Ridge Golf Resort, the signs would direct travellers to Sparkling Hill Resort, which opened recently. Director John Trainor believes the sign will bolster the local economy. “There’s been a significant addition to that area with Sparkling Hill. Let’s move forward for the economic development of the North Okanagan,” he said. Mike Gavinchuk, director for the Commonage, supports the proposal. “It’s a nice sign. Predator wants to bring the sign up to the standards it wanted in 2001,” he said. However, there was some opposition. “I’d hate for the lights to go up and the intensity is far greater than we anticipated,” said director Will Hansma, adding that lighting was a concern for some Commonage residents in 2001. Director Mike Macnabb is worried about precedent. “This is a large advertisement and it opens the door to others. I’m not against this, but why isn’t Silver Star asking for this?” he said.

News Public urged to give the gift of life JENNIFER SMITH Black Press
On Saturday afternoon, 24-yearold Kristin Subotin lost her husband. Cody Subotin was 29 years old. He had had cancer for 16 of those 29 years, but died because an ulcer ruptured in his stomach. Without Canadian Blood Services, and the blood products they provide, the former Vernon couple would never have gotten to say their goodbyes. â€œI want to do this because I want people to take it seriously,â€? said Kristin, who came down to the Kelowna blood donor clinic to tell her story just three days after her husbandâ€™s passing. She wants anyone who can to contribute to the 13th annual Interior Drive for Life blood donor challenge. The challenge officially launched Tuesday and, though sheâ€™s barely had time to process her loss, she was out to make sure everyone in the community knows about it. â€œThe blood is what gave us two more weeks with him,â€? she said. â€œI want people to know how important that was.â€? During those two weeks, Cody went through 25 units of blood, 30 units of platelets and 13 units of fresh frozen plasma. To put it in perspective, each

their doors in Kelowna each week just to handle the needs of one cancer patient. Until Sept. 30, this drive in Kelowna will hopefully generate
1,432 units worth of blood. Some 9,000 units are needed per year in this area and the clinic is currently behind. While people may associate
blood donation with traumatic accidents, the majority of blood products is actually used to support people with long-term serious illness. In 2009, for example, close to a third of the blood issued to Kelowna General Hospital went to cancer patients. â€œBlood products play a necessary role in supportive care of cancer treatment for some of our patients,â€? said Dr. Pamela Leco, a radiation oncologist with thew B.C. Cancer Agency. â€œI see the lifesaving benefits of blood donation in my everyday practice and hope that residents are motivated to donate blood this summer in support of cancer patients in need.â€? Vernon residents wanting to do donate can call 1-888-236-6283 to book an appointment for the Kelowna clinic. Donations are being accepted in Cody Subotinâ€™s honour in a blood drive organized specifically to show his family how many people care. To do so, simply say the donation is to be made in his honour. The next clinic in Vernon will be Sept. 8 to 10 at Trinity United Church, Call 1-888-236-6283 for an appointment, but donations in Vernon will not be considered part of the Interior Drive for Life challenge.

Instead, it was decided to seek a special occasion license so the beverage garden can be held at the main festival site down by the ball fields. â€œAlthough the Rarearth music festival does not currently have not-for-profit status, it has not taken a profit in the past two years,â€? said Nelson. Organizers also plan to get official notfor-profit status by next year. City of Vernon employees will staff the beverage garden this weekend to comply with the license, and the festival will compensate the city for the wages. NORD will also receive a corkage fee of 25 cents sold on every drink. Gilroy praises regional district staff for supporting an event that attracts local resi-
dents and tourists. He also doesnâ€™t believe NORD is condoning alcohol consumption. â€œItâ€™s a family-oriented event so the liquor isnâ€™t an important factor,â€? he said.

Vernon makes pitch for second UBC bus RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Vernon hopes to bring its regional partners financially onboard for transit expansion. The city has asked the North Okanagan Regional District to reconsider its decision not to fund a second bus to the University of B.C. campus in Kelowna. “It’s the most used, over-used, service B.C. Transit has put into effect in the province,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert. A motion to support a second bus was tabled during Wednesdays NORD meeting so information on finances and ridership could be obtained. “With more infor-

They don’t understand it makes other stops.” Besides UBC, Lippert says the second bus will stop at the Kelowna Airport and Lake Country, and Okanagan College’s Kalamalka campus. “It will be providing better service for kids that want to get their education here,” he said

of the local campus. But other communities aren’t convinced they should get involved. “This directly benefits, for the better part, residents of Vernon and that is supported by ridership figures,” said Will Hansma, Spallumcheen mayor.
The entire cost of all transit routes is a concern for John Trainor, an Armstrong councillor. “It’s simply unfair for the regional board to ask small communities to keep footing that bill,” he said. However, Enderby Mayor Dee Wejr is open to looking at the idea of a second bus to UBC because NORD could eventually fund transit between her community and Salmon Arm. “I probably don’t have anyone riding that (UBC) bus but it

NORD begins search for new administrator RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Greg Betts remains at the helm of the North Okanagan Regional District for another nine months, but the search for his successor is underway. The regional board has launched a process
to replace Betts once he retires next year. “His contract expires May 16 so we want to begin the search early,” said chairman Herman Halvorson. Halvorson says that by starting the search process now, he hopes the regional district can
go through a smooth transition. “We need to determine what kind of chief administrative officer we need with the changing structure of the regional district,” he said. The search process will be led by Patrick
Nicol, board vice-chairman. “There will be a workshop and the directors will examine what the best candidate’s qualities are,” said Nicol. Nicol believes that by beginning the search process now, stabil-
ity will be provided to the employees at the regional district. “Staff needs to know there’s a positive direction we’re heading in,” he said. Betts was named administrator at NORD in 2009 and he was the general manager of
electoral area services for three years before that. He was also administrator for Coldstream
for 15 years, and has more than 30 years experience in local government administration.

Record check process changes Morning Star Staff
“It will be interesting, that’s for sure.” — Akbal Mund comes back flagged. “Say you’ve changed your name from Joe Smith to Joe Black, you’ve come to B.C. and applied for a criminal record check,” said Molendyk, citing an example. “The check comes back with the same age, date of birth or things very close you could get flagged and we’ll want your fingerprints because the date of birth matches and sex fields matches exactly with a person who possibly has a criminal record. “The province of B.C. wants to make sure Joe Smith and Joe Black are not one and the same. If they are we want Joe Smith’s record to go to
Joe Black because he’s changed his name.” Molendyk said police are seeing about 25 to 40 per cent of criminal record checks coming back flagged, requiring fingerprints. Anybody doing volunteer work with the vulnerable sector will need a letter from the organization they’re signing up, on the organization’s letterhead, advising of the function the volunteer will have with the vulnerable sector. If a criminal record check is for employment or a paid position, there will be a $25 fee to the City of Vernon for fingerprinting and $25 to Ottawa to conduct
Stolen painting back at gallery BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
A painting stolen July 5 from the ArmstrongSpallumcheen Art Gallery has been returned safe and sound. The six-by-eight inch oil painting of a forest scene by North Okanagan painter Jerry Markham was left on the shelves of the Armstrong library on July 27 but no one noticed who put it there. “No damage was done,” said Nicole Gobeil, who is a student working at the art gallery for the summer. “It had been bought before (it was stolen) and the gentleman (who bought the painting) was really excited; when he came in, he said it made his day.” The art gallery was closed at the time the painting was found. It was handed to Armstrong RCMP and Gobeil picked it up the next day. The artist, Markham, was also happy to hear the news about the painting which had been valued at
$550. “He was very excited to find out it was returned,” said Gobeil. It’s is assumed the person that took the artwork was local and saw how much attention the theft got. Gobeil believes the person may have been worried about being found out. “It was probably someone local who saw all the advertising and publicity,” said Gobeil. “I guess they decided they didn’t want someone to see it in their home and returned it.” Curator Sondra Haglund would like to thank the community for their support in response to this incident and for taking the responsibility for making sure the theft was well publicized.
“It’s something that we’ll deal with and we’ll talk with the B.C. Games Society and see how they want us to proceed on it,” said Akbal Mund, president of the local organizing committee, who only became aware of the new policies this week. “It will be interesting, that’s for sure.”

A national policy change regarding criminal record checks could affect many organizations who rely on volunteer help. The changes will require fingerprints to be obtained and forwarded to Ottawa for most people applying for a criminal record check to volunteer or work with people considered to be a part of what’s called the vulnerable sector. “The vulnerable sector is used to describe children, the elderly and people with disabilities,” said Vernon RCMP spokesman Gord Molendyk, who announced the changes to local media. For volunteer purposes, when fingerprints are taken, a $25 fee is charged to take the fingerprints. That would only happen if a criminal record check
the fingerprint search. Processing for the fingerprints in Ottawa will be treated as a priority but processing time is expected to take upwards of four months. “Somebody could apply for a volunteer position with, say, minor hockey, in September, the check comes back flagged, they need fingerprints so, technically, they would not be allowed to coach until possibly December,” said Molendyk. One organization that will require a number of volunteers will be Greater Vernon’s B.C. Winter Games committee. Vernon is hosting the 2012 B.C. Winter Games and could require between 1,000 and 1,500 volunteers. A number of those volunteers will be working with parts of the vulnerable sector during the Games.

Living in the moment
hen you graduate from high school, it’s easy to imagine that by the time you reach a certain age, you will have accomplished all of the goals you have set for yourself. And sometimes, it’s difficult not to compare your own accomplishments — or lack thereof — with others of the same age. Barack Obama and I are the same age. He’s president of the United States, and I spend a good chunk of my day taking calls from people wondering why their notice hasn’t yet made it into the Community Calendar. But life is what you make it. And life is fleetKatherine Mortimer ing. As those of us at The Morning Star mourn the loss of one of our friends and colleagues and grieve for his wife and their families, it once again hits home that sweating the small stuff really is a waste of time. My sister, who is the youngest of the three kids in our family, but has taken on the role of “sister/mom” since our mom died, offers wise and sensible advice. Often, my sister will say to me, “Now you know what Mom would say in this situation.” So when I lamented the fact that the 44th President of the United States and I share a birth year, she said, “Your life is your life,” and reminded me that we have to enjoy what we have. None of us has a perfect life. It’s easy to look at others and think their house is bigger, they take more vacations. But the life we have is the one we are given. And perhaps the true sign of a person who is truly happy is how they deal with the slings and arrows of life. At high school graduation, I imagined I’d have a fabulous career by 25, my first child by 30, own a house and pay off my mortgage by 40. Life doesn’t work like that, as it turns out. And wishing for what we don’t have is a futile
exercise. Having hopes, dreams and aspirations is important. But living each day in hope of winning the lottery, so you can pay off your mortgage isn’t really living. When my mom was first diagnosed with cancer, and in the two years of our family living with the disease, my dad and I became angry and frustrated. My sister, on the other hand, developed a kind of serenity. Not that she didn’t care, and not that she wasn’t devastated. She was, but in the face of my mom’s malignant, stage-four brain tumour, all the little things no longer seemed all that important. I spent years feeling resentful over some slight, real or otherwise. I spent my first 10 years living in Vernon wishing I lived back in Vancouver, instead of appreciating what I have here. Resentment and anger can poison your soul. Same thing goes for not speaking up and having your voice heard. In my 20s, I pursued a fabulous career in the film industry. And it was fun and glamorous. It was also stressful and at times demoralizing, not ever knowing when I would be getting my next pay cheque. Now, I’m blessed to have a job that I love, co-workers whose company I genuinely enjoy, who not only make me laugh on a daily basis, but have been there through some of the darkest days of my life. These are people who rally when someone needs it, who send flowers, raise money, make calls, give hugs, do what needs to be done. So I look back and realize that I’ve done and accomplished a lot. I have a beautiful child, something I thought I would never have. I have a husband who loves and supports me (even when I’m in my at-home peanut-butter stained T-shirt). I have a loving and close-knit family. I have genuine and true friends whose company I adore. I’ve travelled all over the world. I’ve had wonderful opportunities to give back to my community in many ways. I’m healthy. I have a nice home. This is my life, and I’m living it.
We often think that only superheroes save lives. But while you may not be Superman or Ironman, you can safe a life simply by rolling up your sleeve. By giving blood, you can make a difference in up to three lives in the hour that it takes to go through the donation process. And the demand for blood is high, particularly during the summer when people are involved in motor vehicle collisions or recreational accidents. Blood is also vital for those people with serious illness. For those of us at The Morning Star, we’re mourning the loss of former co-worker Cody Subotin, who died Saturday at age 29. He had been valiantly fighting cancer for 16 years. Wife Kristin is urging people to think of others in need. “Blood is what gave us two more weeks with him,” she said. “I want people to know how important that was.” Fifty-two per cent of Canadians say they, or a family member, have required blood or blood products for surgery or for medical treatment. And yet the number of donors remains critically low. Excuses for not donating abound — I hate needles, I bruise easily, I don’t have enough time to go to a clinic. But place yourself in the shoes of someone facing a health crisis. If it was your child or spouse on the surgical table, or needing a transfusion, you would hope that people would be willing to act. Call 1-888-236-6283 to make an appointment at the permanent Kelowna clinic or the mobile Vernon clinic when it arrives in September. Blood — it’s in you to give.

Teen Junction a vital service
hen I came to Vernon as a teenager from Saskatchewan, I didn’t have much going for me. I was a 16-year-old kid who had just lost his mother and whose mind was spiralling out of control from all of the drinking and drugs. So with no family, mixed with not having anywhere to live,, I guess I was in pretty tough shape as a kid. For the most part, I ran with some pretty bad people who just managed to make a bad thing much worse. They gave me the idea that since I’d already lost so much, I didn’t really have anything else to lose so I should take risks for them. The only saving grace in that cesspool filled with kids being forced to be gangsters and the easy access to drugs was, and still is, Teen Junction. When I went there every weekend (or pretty much whenever it was open), it was like I had a place to forget for a little while about not having a family and not having a home because that place felt like my home and the people were like my family. It was the only thing I had to keep me going through my week. Every time that I thought maybe it was time to give up GREAT EVENT My husband and I came from Sidney on Vancouver Island to take part in the Mr. T's triathlon. When Brian Travelbea and Laura lived here in Victoria, they got us into marathons. Brian and Laura became the reason we are involved in this athletic lifestyle. It was a big loss for our community when they moved to Vernon five years ago. Brian has always been an inspirational leader and coach. We have missed our one-on-ones with him, however, e-mailing and getting coach tips were very helpful. It has been five years since we have been in an athletic event with Brian and Laura. As my husband and I took part in all the aspects of Mr. T's triathlon, from racing to volunteering, we watched Brian in his role of organizer and coach — all of the hats ones wears when dealing with all the issues of these events. We saw Brian's main role as one of inspiration. Not only to the people he coaches and the adults he meets with their children, he inspires parents

and that this world didn’t have a place for me seeing as how I had no family to care for me and no place to sleep, the other teens there and the staff would remind me why life was worth living. Whether it was by just hanging out and dancing with some friends or spending time with one of the staff, it helped me to be OK on the inside for a little bit.
to be the best role models they can be, as they have the greatest impact on their children's lives. Brian and Laura are passionate about promoting physical activity, healthy eating, as part of the Canadian children's everyday life. This weekend taught us many things The most important one is how Brian and Laura Travelbea are leaders by example. They empower children & families to be the best they can be. We experienced for ourselves at Mr. T's triathlon how a well run and organized, event should operate and how kind, thoughtful and understanding leaders inspire all of the athletes, young and old, as well as all of the volunteers. It is very true that "one can inspire many." That one is Brian Travelbea, along with his wife Laura. How blessed is the community of Vernon to have the Travelbeas' passion for this sport right at their doorstep. We will be back next year. Jim Martin and Peni Fitzpatrick
NO APPRECIATION The director who slammed nature park plans, as reported in The Morning Star July 9, could be one of those people who have no appreciation for anything out there that doesn't make money. Some people have no appreciation for the natural world, including flora, fauna or that of which the earth is made. We rape and pillage its soils, dramatically change the atmosphere with activities such as clear cut logging and other money oriented activities. Soon there will be no natural world, no wild animals, no rare plants or birds for those of us who respect the earth to see. Some of us do visit Rose's Pond. Trails suggested by the regional district would be a wonderful improvement, and much appreciated by many, who are not as vocal as those economically driven. Now there are just too many of us. In the earlier times, nature was an obstacle for the explorers. It was quite feasible for settlers to use one piece of land, then move on to the next, enabling where they had been to recover. We can
I know for a fact now that it is what kept me alive during what was one of the darkest parts of my life. I might not have grown up to become a doctor or a lawyer, but I did manage to grow up. Teen Junction gave me the strength to even just hold on in a world that really doesn’t care about the kids. Teen junction was there for me when I was 17 and the government couldn’t find any way to help me. A staff member went out of their way to make sure I had a roof over my head and food in my stomach and that is a hell of a lot more than anyone else out there can say. So to any of you who go about in the streets and see the homeless problem, understand Teen Junction helped to keep one more person out of there and actually have him be one of the people trying to prevent that from happening. I owe Teen Junction my life and as bad as things were when I was young, there are kids that have it way worse that need that place way worse than I did. Please keep that program going so that the world can have more children who, at least for a little while in their life, have good memories and not just a whole head full of bad ones. Anton Dodge

Wildfire smoke advisory continues for area Morning Star Staff
As of Thursday, the Ministry of Environment was continuing a smoke advisory for the North Okanagan because of forest fire smoke from elsewhere in the Interior. “Smoke concentrations will vary widely as winds, fire behaviour and temperatures change,” said Ralph Adams, an air quality meteorologist with the ministry. “This situation is expected to persist for the next 24 hours.” Avoid strenuous outdoor activities during smoke advisories. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms, contact your health care provider: difficulty in breathing, chest pain or discomfort, and sudden onset of cough or irritation of airways. Exposure is particularly a concern for infants, the elderly and those who have underlying medical conditions such as diabetes, and lung or heart disease. “Although air quality readings in Vernon have improved considerably, fire activity is ongoing and the potential remains for a return to smoky conditions,” said Adams.

Vandals cause damage at Armstrong park ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Vandals are creating headaches at Armstrong recreation spots. Damage to sprinklers, handrails and buildings in and around Memorial Park have meant labour costs of $1,300 for ArmstrongSpallumcheen’s parks and recreation commission to repair the damage.
“It’s almost sick what’s being done there,” said Dave Brew, a Spallumcheen councillor and chairman of
the parks and recreation commission. Brew said that 15 sprinkler heads were dismantled or broken
at the park. A handrail at the Nor-Val Sports Centre was cut with a hacksaw and nuts and bolts
were unscrewed from a number of items and just left on the ground. On a positive note,
Brew said ice will be going into the sports centre on Monday, a month earlier than usual.
The ice will be covered during the Interior Provincial Exhibition with covering from the City of Vernon.
Contract awarded BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
Coldstream has approved a tender from a Manitoba steel firm to build the structure that will span the two sides of the grid road project where it goes underneath the railroad track. Capital Steel offered the best price to build the structure and common law states the district has to accept the lowest price. “It came in at about $730,000, including HST,” said Coldstream chief administrative officer Michael Stamhuis. “The price we got from them was competitive, actually below the estimate.” But the structure will take longer to deliver than council had hoped. It won’t arrive until November so the finish date of the project is being pushed back to late May 2011. Originally, Coldstream had anticipated a March 31 finish date. GCL Contracting of Langley is the primary builder on the project and will construct all other phases of the road which will go from Kalamalka Road under the train tracks just north of Kal Lake Store up to College Way. “This will link the two abutments,” said Stamhuis. “The span will support the railway (at a) much higher load than we’ll ever see on that span.” Council accepted the tender at a brief meeting Tuesday evening.

Park proposal approved RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Planning for a new nature park in Greater Vernon has received official approval. On Wednesday, the North Okanagan Regional District board approved development of a park on 140 acres surrounding Rose’s Pond on Commonage Road. “It’s an opportunity to open up a little bit of greenspace,” said director Patrick Nicol. “It’s a really valuable piece of property.” Rose’s Pond has been designated as environmentally significant because it’s home to painted turtles and eared grebe. It is also a migratory stopping point for many bird species. The plan is to construct walking trails and signage informing the public about the natural surroundings. “There will be other properties in the Commonage that may benefit from similar attention,” said Nicol. However, before development of the park can begin, the
“It’s a really valuable piece of property.” — Patrick Nicol Department of National Defence must ensure the property is free of explosives that may have landed there during training exercises in the Second World War. It’s because of the possible unexploded devices that director
Wayne Lippert wants a park established instead of people wandering through the area on their own. “The idea is to have a trail so people can walk around safely,” he said. Opposition to the park has come from
Mike Gavinchuk, director for the rural parts of the Commonage. “What are we doing with that property?” he said. “I don’t feel the regional district should be involved at all.” Gavinchuk believes the property — which is leased by the City of Vernon from the government — should be left as is. “It’s not right to spend money on something that’s completely useless,” he said.

Funtastic honours groups Morning Star Staff
Two organizations have been honoured for their strong dedication to the community. The Vernon Lions and the Vernon chapter of the Junior Chamber International were recently inducted into the Funtastic Sports Society Hall of Fame. â€œThese two organizations exemplify the spirit of Funtastic,â€? says Funtastic president Wilf Mulder. â€œBoth of this yearâ€™s inductees have a long history not only in supporting Funtastic but also playing a significant role in the community.â€? In 2004, the Lions stepped in to help and according to Rod Gorsline of the Vernon Lions, looked at what was being done and how they can do it better. â€œThe Vernon Lions have an outstanding ability to attract volunteers and have fun,â€? said Gorsline.
Rod Gorsline (left), with the Vernon Lions, and Erin Doucette (right), with JCI Vernon, receive hall of fame recognition from Sandra Simao, Funtastic secretary, and Wilf Mulder, Funtastic president.
â€œThis is a great benefit for us and for Funtastic; all monies raised through Funtastic go back into the community through the Lions as well.â€? JCI Vernon also plays a vital role in hosting the slo-pitch tournament and music festival, by providing a team of volunteers. â€œWe couldnâ€™t have done this without the help of such a great group of dedicated volunteers,â€? said Erin Doucette, of JCI Vernon. The Funtastic Sports Society established the Hall of Fame to honour a tradition of volunteer spirit and excellence.

New Armstrong-Spallumcheen pool over-budget ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
An overrun of close to $69,000 on the new ArmstrongSpallumcheen Aquatic Centre will force the two communities to dip into reserve funds. Spallumcheen Coun. Dave Brew, chair of the ArmstrongSpallumcheen Parks and Recreation Commission, explained that a vast majority of the overrun came from an extremely low budgeted item. “A quantitative surveyor gave us an estimate of $18,500 for the fence and decking at the pool, and the actual cost was $83,696,” said Brew. “To say we were a little surprised by that would be an understatement.” The new facility’s budget for construction was $2.4 million, while the actual cost was just over $2.5 million. The pool has opened to rave reviews from the public, though the only complaint, said Brew, was the height requirement of four-feet to be able to use the water slide. “We’ll have to look at putting in a smaller slide when we get some more money,” he said.
The slide’s opening was delayed for a couple of weeks after the official opening of the cen-
tre because of staining work to be done around the slide. The pool’s hot tub
was the last piece of equipment to be officially opened. In one month,
according to a written report from parks and recreation general manager Bill Vos, the
aquatic centre brought in $37,000 in revenues. It’s estimated that the final pool revenue
for the season will be $68,222, well over the budgeted amount of $56,626.

Controls clip Eagle Homes crew Morning Star Staff
Starting the game with just 10 men against the thirdplace Eagle Homes NOD of Salmon Arm, things didn't look good for the young Turn-Key Controls squad Wednesday night at Marshall Field #2. Knowing they were down a man turned out to be a blessing in disguise as Turn-Key defeated Eagle Homes 3-0 in North Okanagan Men's Soccer League action. Turn-Key used a dominant possession game to make the ball do the work, controlling the play in the first half but coming a few big saves short of opening the scoring. Kevin Fresorger showed up late in the first half to bring Turn-Key even with 11 players. The Controls continued to use their ball-possession game in the second half, and opened the scoring early when after a beautiful effort by Nathan Tucker to free Cameron Egan, Egan's cross found an Eagle Homes defender for an own goal. Eagle Homes applied some pressure, but were shut down by the Turn-Key defence of Tucker, Rob McGloin, Sam Nolan, Greg Finch and Fresorger, and keeper Jeremy Kler, who will play the rest of the way after the Controls lost UBC O Heat keeper Spencer Brown to college summer practice. Egan created another chance after being in all alone against the Eagle Homes keeper and Evan Moore was there to follow up with the rebound to put Turn-Key ahead 2-0. A few minutes later, Preston Tucker found Kyle Goodgrove, who found Chris Jahnig on a long ball through the middle that Jahnig cheekily chipped over the keeper to put the game out of reach. Eagle Homes dipped to 8-2-2. Turn-Key (6-6-1) will join forces with some members of the Little Tex Outlaws and other Vernon women's teams to compete in the annual co-ed soccer tournament this weekend. The Revelstoke Stallions overtook the North Enderby Timber for first place with a 5-2 win Wednesday night at Marshall Field #3. The Stallions ran up a 4-2 lead at the break as they improved to 10-1-1. NET, who got goals from Kyle Halvorson and Johnny Orton, fell to 8-2-4. NET, who were missing a few starters on the back line, will finish out the regular season with two games against the Davidson & Co. Dynamite. The Dynamite went to to 5-7-1 with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over Monashee Surveying at Marshall #4. Rob Ross got his head on a free kick with 15 minutes left and Connor Lee converted. Ian Ross recorded the

Monashee keeper Colin McConell was also busy in a game which featured a lot of midfield play. Speedy right defender Sam Pantaleo was stellar for Monashee (4-10).
The playoff format will see the eighth- and ninth-place teams battle for the last berth. The regular-season champions will then meet the eighth-place team. It will also be 2 versus 7, 3 versus 6 and 4 versus 5 in the first round.

Sports U14s tank Mariners
Drillers upend Setters
Morning Star Staff
The Thompson Okanagan FC U14 Boys finished their Y-League season with a 3-0 victory over the Abbotsford Mariners Saturday at Marshall Field. The game started with end-to-end play as both teams fought for possession of the ball. Gradually, the Okanagan crew began passing and moving the ball up the field and pressuring the Mariners' defence. In the 10th minute, Thompson Okanagan's offensive pressure paid off as they were awarded a free kick just outside the 18-yard area. Midfielder Brody Osborne sent in a beautiful ball to forward Dan Schager who headed the ball into the back of the net. Osborne then had two great shots on net that just went wide of goal and Ayo Fashanu came close hitting the crossbar. Defender Walker Shanks also sent in two great balls off free kicks that were saved by the Mariner keeper. Midfielder Dom Haynes set up TOFC's second goal with a well-placed corner that was sent home by forward Jacob Dolinar (Vernon). The first half ended 2-0. TOFC maintained their offensive pressure throughout the second half. Schager assisted on the third goal, passing off to Osborne, who broke away from the Mariners' defence and beating the keeper to tap the ball into the left corner of the net. The Mariners were shut down by the strong defensive efforts of Chris Pires and fellow defenders Joe Overton, Walker Shanks, Ayden Ledding and Noah Varley (Vernon). Keeper Victor Gouchee (Vernon) played another great game, earning his third shutout of the season. In U13B action, the visiting Mariners stopped TOFC 1-0 in a spirited contest which went to extra time. The TOFC defence played solid with Finlay McPhie (Vernon), Tanner Farber, Andrew Henseleit and Kurtis Knuth holding off the Mariners.
The Goplen Drillers upset the first-place Salmon Arm Setter's Pub 3-0 in North Okanagan Women's Soccer Association Masters Division action Tuesday night at Marshall Field #5. The teams endured a torrential downpour right at kick off but the rain failed to damper the competitive spirit. With a great pass from defender Tracey Hill, Glenda Hatten dribbled it down the right side before scoring with a wonderful cross with her golden boot on an angle that was too difficult for the Setter's keeper to stop. In the second half, the rain stopped but the outstanding passing game for the Drillers continued and the second goal began with a pass from Vel Beaumont to Hatten, who created a great opportunity with a feed in front of the net where Nancy Nickoli was in the right place at the right time, scoring a beautiful one timer. Nickoli's second goal came when Garrison brought it up the middle with a great through pass to strikers Karen Zupp and Nickoli, who ran side by side creating confusion for the keeper as to who would shoot. It was Nickoli who lightly pushed the ball into the net. The game MVP for the 10-3-1 Drillers went to Garrison, who once again was tireless in the middle picking up any loose players. Goplen got another stellar performance

After enduring torrential winds and a monsoon downpour, Cindy Worth (left) of Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers and Krista Ference of the AF Blazers battle head-to-head for possession during women's Competitive Division soccer league play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #1. from keeper Shawn Nickoli, who challenged many attacks for the shutout. Setter's dipped to 12-2. In Competitive Division action, TED United of Salmon Arm shut down the first place Little Tex Outlaws 1-0 at Marshall Field #3. Gineil Ferrier had a great game in net, making some key saves to keep the 14-2-1 Outlaws in the game.
Jordan Mercer and Stacey Cover were strong at the back, cutting off many United scoring chances. Medan McGillis and Tania Ghattis both had enjoyed stellar showings in the middle, passing the ball well and creating loads of scoring opportunities. Kayla Palfrey and Monica Neilson ran well up front but could not capitalize against awesome Salmon
Arm keeper Alyssa Armstrong. Sue Doray scored for United (124-1). The AF Blazers brushed back Dr Lee's Dental/Checkers 2-1 at Marshall Field #1. Delinah Erbenich opened the scoring with a sensational header off a cross from Ally Cummings. Dr Lee's (11-5) equalized minutes later when Jacquie Hansen connected.
Erbenich notched the winner with five minutes remaining on another header. Dr Lee's pressed for the equalizer with three consecutive corners but were unable to capitalize. Katie Hatten was brilliant in net for the Blazers (10-6). Jane Higgins, Signi Macneill and Rhonda Catt were all-stars on defence shutting down the Dr. Lee's attack.
Adanacs storm Salmonbellies for series lead Morning Star Staff
Ben McIntosh and Robbie Campbell each fired 2+2 as Brodie MacDonald’s Coquitlam Adanancs outgunned the New Westminster Salmonbellies 11-8 in Game 3 of the B.C.

Sports Sun Old Boys entertain German tour OK bolster KEVIN MITCHELL
Back in the day, Felix Heinrich and Dieter Usemann faced one another in World Cup Masters soccer tournaments in Argentina and New Zealand. The two 60-somethings enjoyed a reunion Tuesday night in Vernon. They joined together on a touring German team from Köpenick and then hoisted a few Okanagan Spring Brewery glasses of beer, munched on smokies and spuds, and sang songs in the MacDonald Park clubhouse. "We played in the World Cup in Argentina about 12 years ago," said Heinrich, a Swiss product now living in Vernon. "I was with a Calgary team and he was with Germany. We played in New Zealand about five years ago." The Köpenick team played a friendly in Calgary on the weekend before busing to Vernon. They spent Tuesday night in Kelowna before heading to Vancouver for another game and barbecue. Köpenick is a historic town and region (Ortsteil) that is situated at the confluence of the rivers Dahme and Spree in the south-east of the German capital city of Berlin. Jurgen Vintzelberg, at the three-minute mark on a long run, Wolfgang Von Schwdier and guest player Chris Reeves scored as Köpenick tripped up the Vernon Old Boys 3-1 at Marshall Field #1. Locals Ron Krause (of German descent), Dave Gould, Akbal Mund, Don Eyers, George Weihar and Alistair Duncan also donned the yellow German jerseys. The visitors had eight players among a mixed traveling group of 15. Heinrich, who organized the friendly along with Harry Adam and Erv Schur, served as interpreter for Usemann. "He said it was a very friendly get together," said Heinrich. "It was a very fun game and all the players were very happy. Both teams were equally strong. We had some strong players from your team." Al Bensmiller gave up the three goals while making a handful of glorious saves. Ray Tims took over in net in the second half and was fabulous. The two keepers robbed the talented Krause at least six times, while Krause sent a few shots wide or over the net. The twin towers – Bill Graham and Jan Hubert – took a feed from midfielder Steve Coombs and ran a nifty give-and-go with Graham beating keeper Peter Paulsen, who also enjoyed a stellar showing. Schur, Huberts, a Dutch product, and Vernon defender Mike Siemens spoke fluent German at the joyous clubhouse table as the teams drank a shot of Okanagan Spirit before saying goodbye. The teams exchanged pins and pennants before the game, which was refereed by Wayne Aasen. Torrential rain hit the field just moments after the teams shook hands. The Vernon Old Boys are trying to line up a weekend trip to Calgary, Aug. 28-29 for two friendlies.

Bos earns black belt at Shotokan seminar Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Yuri Bos is the latest member of the Vernon Shotokan Karate Club to earn a black belt. Training under the guidance of sensei Mike Ciurka, Bos was promoted to first degree black belt at the annual Hiroyoshi Okazaki training seminar held at the International Shotokan Karate Federation (ISKF) regional headquarters in Port Moody. Okazaki, 49, is a seventh degree black belt, instructor and examiner based out of Philadelphia. He pushed participants to a higher level in karate with his dynamic instructing style. The weekend seminar ended with individuals from all over B.C. demonstrating their skills in hope of passing the black belt grading. Many did not pass, but Bos’s excellent demonstration of karate techniques, kata (traditional forms) and kumite (sparring) satisfied Okazaki and the other attending ISKF officials. The Vernon club trains Tuesday and Thursday nights, and Saturday mornings, at the St. James Elementary. For more information contact Ciurka at 307-7210 or visit www.vernonshotokan.ca.
The Okanagan Sun have added defensive back Hayden Bell to the secondary. While he is new to the Sun, the 20-year-old St. Francis High School (Calgary) grad is not new to the BCFC. Bell, who arrived in Kelowna last weekend, was a finalist for Rookie of the Year in 2008 while playing for the Victoria Rebels, an honour that went to Sun receiver Danny Turek. Bell had 15 tackles, three batted balls and four interceptions in his lone BCFC season. He spent last season with the University of Alberta Golden Bears. The 6-foot-1, 180pound Bell on why he chose the Okanagan Sun for his return to the BCFC and playing at the Apple Bowl: “I love the city, and the team opened its doors to me. Everything I know about the Sun this year is that it can be a championship team. “The 13th man (Apple Bowl fans), I knew about that when I was in Victoria. It’s really exciting to be on that side of the ball.” Bell should be in uniform as the Sun host the two-time defending national champion Vancouver Island Raiders Saturday, 7 p.m., at the Apple Bowl.

Sports SPORTS BRIEFS Letawsky spirit lives on in tourney Co-ed teams of three will hit the grass at Grahame Park Saturday in the 12th annual Cam Letawsky Memorial Volleyball Tournament. The highly popular Letawsky, who wore No. 13 in his high school and college career, was killed in a car accident on the Coquihalla Highway in September, 1998. He was 24. Organizer Brad Kowalski said a dozen teams have registered, and late entries are welcome by calling Brad at 250-542-8412. Action goes from 8:30 a.m. until about 4 p.m. A Fulton grad, Letawsky ran and coached beach volleyball programs for parks and rec. His parents – Ellie and Len – will use proceeds from the tournament to help provide scholarships to those in need of financial help with hopes of furthering their post-secondary education. The basis for the Cam Letawsky Memorial Scholarship is post-secondary education. The student should be of C status or B-minus, and not normally be considered by universities for scholarship qualification.
Schon ready to bring the Heat Second-year power hitter Myrte Schon is transferring to the UBC O Heat from Abbotsford’s Columbia Bible College after a year of starring for the fifth-place Bearcats where she finished first in the league in aces. The 5-foot-11 Schon also finished among the BCCAA league leaders in kills and digs, making the All-Rookie team. She’s expected to be an immediate impact player for the volleyball Heat. Schon joins the Heat after a stellar high school career at Langley Christian where she was named Senior Female Athlete of the Year. She also played for the Team B.C. 18-under team and for the provincial champion Fraser Valley Blitz. When asked why she chose to transfer to UBC, Schon replied “I chose UBC Okanagan because I wanted a change... I have heard only good things about both the classes and the campus at UBC Okanagan.” When asked how she feels about joining the Heat, she replied “I’m really excited to be part of the team. I think that I’ll fit right in with the girls and the coaches, and I’m sure I will love the time that I get to spend with them both on and off the court. The girls that I have met were really friendly and made me feel welcome right away. I’m pumped to see how the season turns out.”
Howe surprised by national selection Volleyball Canada has announced that 6-foot-7 UBC Okanagan Heat freshman Chris Howe is among the 14 players selected to participate at the 11-country 2010 NORCECA Junior Men’s Continental Championship, Aug. 16-21, in Gatineau, Que. The roster was finalized after the Challenge Cup tournament in Toronto. The athletes will train at the Team Canada Training Center in Gatineau from July 26 through Aug. 14. “Being chosen to play on the junior national team came as a bit of a shock,” said Howe, a middle blocker out of Salt Spring Island. “I don’t feel like I deserve to represent Canada yet, but I hope to before the end of the program. I’m also very excited to be here and learn from the best.”
Quotable... Red Wing GM Ken Holland on signing Mike Modano: “I’ve been patient, I guess, because it’s not like we’re saying, ‘We need a player and if it’s not Mike Modano we’re sitting on the sidelines and players are moving,’” Holland said. “We’re probably going to go with (Darren) Helm and (Justin) Abdelkader anyway. I just thought that when Mike Modano hit the market on July 1 that it was a unique situation, because he’s a local Little Caesars’ player that is one of the greatest American-born players ever, and he can still skate.”
Paddlers storm Kin Morning Star Staff
A total of 236 outrigger canoe paddlers descended on Vernon last weekend to compete in the 12th annual North American Freshwater Challenge at Kin Beach.

Penticton pluck MacMillan from Bulldogs EMANUEL SEQUEIRA Black Press
PENTICTON – Getting Mark MacMillan was just too good to pass up. Just as getting a home-cooked meal and sleeping at home is for the 18-year-old. The Rookie of the Year for the Coastal Conference tapped his skates, made a wish to be sent home, and his request was granted. When Penticton Vees coach-GM Fred Harbinson got the call from the Alberni Valley Bulldogs, he was able to pull a deal to get the skilled centre into a Vees jersey. "The opportunity to add a playmaker of Mark's ability is exciting for our program,” said Harbinson. “The fact that Mark is a local product is also great for our organization and the community. We are excited to get the season started with Mark as a member of the Vees." And MacMillan, a Montreal Canadiens draft pick (113th overall in 2010 Entry Draft), shares that excitement. “I think it’s going to be a good opportunity for me to come play my last year at home,” he said while visiting family friends in Toronto. “Penticton has a great winning tradition. Every kid kind of thinks it would be cool to play at home.” Having lost Denver Manderson (113 points), who is resuming his career with EC Red Bull Salzburg in Austria for the 20102011 season, and Beau Bennett (120 points), who will play for the Denver University Pioneers in the fall, the Vees needed to find a replacement for that offence. Harbinson had been talking with Powell River in regards to acquiring Jordan Grant, which he did for future considerations, when he received word that MacMillan asked for a trade that would send him closer to home. “When Alberni Valley contacted us we were obviously interested,” said Harbinson,

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) If a disagreement should arise between you and your mate while out in public, wait until you are alone to air it out. Doing so in front of others would add fuel to the fire in the way of further embarrassment and humiliation. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Strive to be a positive thinker, or you will adopt a negative attitude and generate all types of ways and means to fulfill your belief that life is a bummer. You’ll have no one to blame but yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Unless you are careful, a gossipy friend will probe into your affairs in order to unearth something you want kept secret. Be careful this skillful investigator doesn’t catch you off-guard. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You and your mate are likely to be in accord when it comes to major issues. However, those little differences over trivial things can easily generate an angry exchange if you’re not careful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Upon occasion we all can treat life more indifferently than we should. If you’re not careful, playing things too loose could get carried to extremes, and would cause you to miss something important. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Having strong desires for personal gain could cause you to take some chances
or risks that you normally wouldn’t. Keep in mind all the reasons why a long shot is so precarious and dangerous. ARIES (March 21-April 19) It’s one of those days when the people you try to please the most are likely to be the least appreciative of your gestures. You can’t be all things to all people, so don’t even try. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) When racing around town, keep your eye on your fellow athletes. One could give you a run you never intended to take, with both of you fighting for the same space. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Be careful not to jump to conclusions and get into a squabble with another who is just as off-course as you. To rectify any misunderstanding you must maintain your composure. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Appropriate self-esteem is essential, as you know, but not to the point of thinking you are superior to everybody else. It usually takes a large dose of humility to keep us thinking straight.

Bridge by Phillip Alder An anonymous person said, â€œA stitch in time would have confused Einstein.â€? In todayâ€™s deal, if you spend your time stitching, not concentrating on the game, it will cost you nine -- the number of tricks declarer needs to make his contract. How can the defenders defeat three no-trump after West leads the spade queen? The drawback of Stayman is that if you do not ďŹ nd a 4-4 majorsuit ďŹ t, you have given free information about declarerâ€™s hand to the defenders. My policy these days is to use Stayman with minimum values for game and a low doubleton. With either honor-doubleton or
extra values (so we have at least 29 points between us), I just jump to three notrump. South has seven top tricks: two spades, two hearts and three clubs. He must play on diamonds. And following the reliable rule that when you have two stoppers in the suit they lead and two high cards to dislodge, declarer ducks the ďŹ rst trick, wins the second with dummyâ€™s spade ace, and calls for the diamond four. Now the spotlight turns to East. He must remember that when his partnerâ€™s suit is one lead from being established, he should try to win the next defensive trick. Here, East must throw his diamond king â€œto the wolves.â€?
If declarer could take the king with his ace, Eastâ€™s play will not have cost the defense a trick; that king was dead anyway. But when East wins the trick, he returns his last spade, setting up Westâ€™s suit while he, West, still has the diamond ace as an entry.

Crystal Salewski is only 20 but she’s already known for several years what she wants to do with her life. The 2007 Clarence Fulton graduate has been working towards her teaching degree at UBC-Okanagan for the last three years but it was a memorable excursion in 2005 that inspired her. As a 15-year-old, Salewski was part of a youth group in the Clean Water for Haiti effort run by Vernon native Leslie Rolling and her husband Chris. That experience planted a seed in her head and when she leaves on Aug. 12, she’ll be on the way to realizing her dream. “I’ve been thinking about this for quite some time,” said Salewski. “Something I want to eventually do with my life is start my own school there. “This is a great opportunity that came up.” Salewski will spend the school year teaching at El Sheddai Learning Centre, a missionaryrun school of about 70 students. She’ll have a Grade 1 class with about six kids and is looking forward to what she hears is an enthusiastic collection of learners. “The kids down there want to go to school, they don’t have the opportunity as much,” she said, adding the small class size is something she’s looking forward to. “There will be more one-on-one and I’ll be

Vernon resident Crystal Salewski is headed to Haiti to spend a year teaching Grade 1 students before returning to complete her education degree. able to concentrate on them more.” There are other bonuses once she lands in Haiti. First, she’ll be close to where friends Leslie and Chris Rolling live. Second, she’ll be able to use her French, which she studied in high school and university. But there are aspects of Canadian life she will miss though. “My family is a big one that I’ll miss and the ease and convenience of everything here.” Salewski works at
Baker’s Dozen bakery and the store has set up a donation box for her school and classroom. Anyone wishing to donate can also contact Salewski at home at 250-558-1509. There is a great need for teachers in Haiti and the country is still reeling from the Jan. 12 earthquake that killed more than 200,000 people. The Haiti trip in 2005 was an eye opener for Salewski just because of how much hardship Haitians have to cope with.
“The amount of poverty, there’s garbage everywhere,” she said. “Kids play in it, they don’t know any different.” Salewski will join a teaching staff made up mainly of Americans and some Haitians. She plans to return to UBCO in 2011 to complete her teaching studies but says saying goodbye to her students will be tough. “The hardest part for me will be leaving the kids at the end of the school year,” she said.

The Downtown Show and Shine is back. On Saturday from 5 to 10 p.m., downtown Vernon will be lined with street rods, classics, customs, vintage cars. “The Show and Shine is certainly a Vernon favourite and it’s only getting better this year” said Holly Schmidt, events and marketing co-ordinator with the Downtown Vernon Association. “Car lovers will feel the rock with live music by Mace and a tribute to Elvis by Clay Stenberg.” The ‘50s mood will be enhanced by the return of the A&W Malt Shoppe, where Silver Star royalty will be selling floats by donation, and roller derby girls will be serv-
ing free appies courtesy of KT’s Heritage Restaurant. Between entertainment, there will be a number of contests. Sprott-Shaw Community College is offering three $1,000 scholarships to the winners of the hula hoop, limbo and twist dance competitions. “Make sure you come out and show your stuff for a chance at the incredible top prize,” said Schmidt. “Don’t miss this great event. Bring the family, or bring a friend.

4ALENT SHOW WINNERS ENTER STUDIO ALEX BROWNE
They just finished their first full-length album, recorded in Nashville under the aegis of performer/ producer Colin Linden, whoâ€™s worked with many major artists the likes of Colin James, Bruce Cockburn and Lucinda Williams. But the opening line in Sam and Luke Remediosâ€™ song Hittinâ€™ The Road â€“â€“ from the new album, Standing In A Room â€“â€“ shows theyâ€™re not about to disown the town where they grew up. â€œWe started on this journey from White Rock...â€? the brothers sing, in a musical recounting of their trip to Nashville. And theyâ€™d be as likely to deep-six their trademark ties as miss the chance to join the talent line-up at this weekendâ€™s Rarearth Music Festival at Kin Race Track in Vernon. Joined by regular bandmates, drummer Jade Derrett and bassist Graham Scott, the brothers won the opportunity to play the festival main stage after topping the 2010 Our Kids Have Talent Contest in January, which also earned them $5,000. Staying in touch with audiences continues to be important for U.S. born-B.C. raised Sam (19) and Luke (who turned 16 Sunday). And itâ€™s worth noting the soft spoken and unfailingly polite brothers have literally won their connections by dint of hard work and sustained effort. Their 2008 win in the White Rock Blues Societyâ€™s Roots and Blues Talent Search took them from promising garage band and coffee house busker status to a whole new level of incipient professionalism. Travelling to Nanaimo, they won the chance to appear in a show there with legendary Downchild Blues Band â€“ which led to them being chosen by SHORE 104 FM to appear again with the veteran performers at a subsequent Vancouver performance. â€œIt just so happened that Colin Linden was opening for them,â€? said Luke. â€œAfter that, we kept in contact by phone, and everything started to fall into place.â€? The idea of recording an album with Linden wasnâ€™t even discussed at first, added Sam. â€œWe started out with just general musical talk and what influences we had,â€? he said. â€œIt was our first time talking backstage at a theatre with another artist, which was really great. â€œEverybody whoâ€™s worked with Colin said heâ€™s the nicest and best guy to work with â€“â€“ and itâ€™s absolutely true.â€? Recording the album itself was a two-and-a-half month process, including the brothersâ€™ first experience collaborating with other songwriters including two time Grammy-winner Gary Nicolson, drummer Tom Hambridge (who plays on all the tracks in the album) and young Canadian songwriter Liam Titcomb. â€œWe were amazed at how well and fast that went,â€? said Sam. â€œWeâ€™d work on that for two hours a day and some days weâ€™d come away with two new songs.â€? It was also a great family bonding experience, the

Our Kids Have Talent winners Sam and Luke Remedios are back from Nashville where they recorded their new album Standing In A Room. They play the Rarearth Music Festival Saturday. brothers said, as dad Ken and mom Jude joined them at the same extended stay hotel through the end of March to the beginning of June.
â€œThe one thing I learned from this experience of recording is that I have to work very hard â€“ itâ€™s not all rock nâ€™ roll.â€? â€” Luke Remedios Scariest aspect, they admit, was not the recording sessions but being in Nashville during hurricane season. Numerous tornado and flood warnings kept them confined to the hotel for several days, the brothers said. Fortunately, their hotel was only seconds away from a general store so the family didnâ€™t suffer too much for material needs. And they discovered, travelling to and from the studio for seven-hour daily recording stints that what locals say is true â€“â€“ everything is 15 minutes away from everything else in Nashville. â€œIt was great fun â€“â€“ Colin really knows how to keep everyone energized,â€? said Luke. Another great thrill, they recounted, was working with such legendary session sidemen as bassist Bob Babbit of the Funk Brothers (Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Gladys Knight and the Pips and Jimi Hendrix)
who appears on eight of the tracks. â€œHe was incredibly respectful of us,â€? marvelled Sam, noting the contribution such an experienced talent made to the title track Standing In A Room. â€œThe bass line he did on that chorus was pure genius. When we heard it we started laughing because only he could come up with a bass line like that. He did our session and then flew down to L.A. to record with Phil Collins. â€œAll the guys we worked with down there, no matter how many awards they have, are all very down to earth and all really open,â€? added Luke. It seems like an exponential advance for them in just three scant years of performing together, but the brothers find it hard to assess the growth they have experienced as musicians. â€œIâ€™m still at a loss for words about it,â€? said Sam. â€œWe have grown as musicians, but it happened so gradually from our perspective, we didnâ€™t notice it that much when it actually happened.â€? Still, he reflected, â€œitâ€™s a long way to go from playing in coffee shops to recording in Nashville.â€? â€œIt seems fast for others,â€? said Luke. â€œBut for us it feels really slow, because weâ€™re doing it every day. The one thing I learned from this experience of recording is that I have to work very hard â€“ itâ€™s not all rock nâ€™ roll.â€? For more information on Sam and Luke, visit www. samandluke.com. The brothers take the main stage with their band at the Rarearth Music Festival Saturday at 12:15 p.m.
The stages are built, spotlights readied, and sounds systems plugged in. All that is needed now is the sweet sounds of music wafting through the air, and audiences to enjoy it all. More than 100 musicians, 200 volunteers, numerous local businesses and many more music fans are raring up for this weekendâ€™s Rarearth Music Festival, which kick-starts today and wraps up Sunday at Vernonâ€™s Kin Race Track. All the activity has Rarearth founder and artistic director Kath Raeber hoping that Vernon will come out to support the grassroots festival with its greenleaning, anti-plastic mantra, which is also a showcase for local, young talent. â€œWeâ€™ve had calls from as far as Ontario and Alberta who are interested in coming to the festival,â€? said Raeber. â€œThis is the hump year. We really need (locals) to support what we have here.â€? With last minute details being ironed out, Raeber has been working until the wee hours to make sure this yearâ€™s festival is a success. â€œThereâ€™s so much work involved, so many schedules, bylaws and hoops that have to be jumped over to get the festival doors open and everyone smiling,â€? she said.

Arts Foo doesn’t fight with Dead Peasants Chris Shiflett and the Dead Peasants
he endless summering of the Foo Fighters doesn’t mean its members are on holiday. Guitarist Chris Shiflett and drummer Tyler Hawkins have both released records: Shiflett’s is a band situation, Dean Gordon-Smith while Hawkins’ was a guest star sit-in gig. While Hawkins’ recording was a skillfully executed, ’70’s FM rock tribute that
was heavy on flash, Shiflett’s self-titled album has the ring of sincerity –– a simple southern California, country-rock sound. While Shiflett and the Dead Peasants have little in common with the Foos, there’s a slight link to that band’s acoustic work. This album is mellow. It’s highway music if you’re driving way under speed, down a wrong turnoff or a lost byway. Shiflett and the DPs made a turn off to Bakersfield, and picked up a pedal steel guitar and put that prominently in their songs, and this proves a logical match with Shiflett’s relaxed, melodic voice and flowing chords. It’s campfire music with twangy guitars and acoustics – music to not get excited about. If this can be possible, it
“Where Health & Honey Meet”
bears a resemblance to Shawn Mullins’ easy-paced songs, minus the travelogue lyrics. Nashville it’s not. It’s more western swing music, without the swing (Death March). The placid groove is interrupted by An Atheist’s Prayer long enough to suggest a darker shade of the California sunshine. The track sounds like a forgotten recording in some dead producer’s vault, stashed behind some moldy, homegrown and dummy dust. It’s a welcome bump in the laid-back road. The Dead Peasants disc is peacefully unassuming music: a sympathetic sound to have playing while waiting around for something to happen.

Arts Wells swells to Ashton Creek Morning Star Staff
Edmonton prairie balladeer Scott Cook, along with roots duo Jesse Dee and Jacquie B, perform an intimate show at Lorenzo’s Cafe Saturday as part of what they’re calling a “mini tour” of southern B.C. The trio often play together as part of Cook’s five-piece band, The Long Weekends, but they travel the folkways in smaller numbers and decibels in between big shows and festivals. Known for backing each other up on three-part harmonies, light percussion, sweet electric licks and triple the stage banter, the musicians just performed at B.C.’s secret gem of a festival, Arts Wells. “(It’s a) meeting place of incredible musicianship, talent, art, and friends,” said Jacqueline Boisvert (Jacquie B), who, with Jesse Dee, have recently laid their hats in Wells as new residents. Together, the duo’s musical landscape ranges from funky jazz and
hard-hitting rock to delicate folk, and their unique harmonies and rhythmic shifts defy any expectation listeners may have. Sharing stories about life and love on the road and at home, the duo is steadily becoming a favourite on Canada’s independent music scene. Cook is a tirelessly traveling songwriter with his heart forever on his sleeve. “A lifelong wanderer, he brings honesty, humour, a wealth of experience and a deep love of humanity to his songwriting and storytelling,” said Boisvert. Live, he accompanies himself with acoustic guitar, banjo, ukulele, harmonica and foot percussion, or the backing of The Long Weekends. Cook, Jesse Dee and Jacquie B will be joined by bassist Moses Gregg at Lorenzo’s Cafe, 901 Mabel Lake Rd., east of Enderby, Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 and tables can be reserved by calling (250) 838-6700.

Teena Boruch, one, came to the awards day of the Vernon School District Summer Reading Program with her sister, Emma Tysick, six, and their mother, Sandra Desjarlais.
The joy of reading CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff
The children may not remember the titles of the books they read this summer — what will stay with them is the enjoyment of reading for pleasure. “It was fun,” said Nitah Hunter, eight, shyly examining the medal she received for taking part in the School District 22 Summer Reading Program at Alexis Park School. Her father, Todd Hunter, a single father of two who is on a disability pension and volunteers at the school, appreciates the opportunity to come to the program. “We went to the Strong Start program here. This is a great school with so many great opportunities. Nitah was in the program last

year and I’ve noticed that she is more interested in reading and her self confidence has come up. She reads to her brother now.” The Summer Reading Program is for all students Grades 1 to 3 in the district. It runs for four weeks, five mornings a week and parents, grandparents and caregivers attend with the children. The students set their own reading goals and all in the program met their goals and received medals and certificates from Vernon library librarian Monica Gaucher. “I think it’s really enriching for the children and families to be able to come and make friends with families from other schools while they continue to develop their literacy skills. We also do literacy games and activities and the children and parents read at home together,” said Rebecca Thompson, a
teacher who was program facilitator. Michael Cozby is another parent who brought his child, Samantha Williams, seven, to the program. “She enjoyed it a lot and brought home new books every night. The teachers were really understanding. Programs like this help the kids keep learning over the summer,” he said. The volunteers who worked in the program also enjoyed sharing their own love of reading with others. “It has been great to see the excitement and the smiles on the kids’ faces when they find a book they like,” said Rebekah Dueck, a Grade 10 Seaton school student. For more information about the Summer Reading Program contact Cullie Dueck at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Book brings together a history of B.C. Morning Star Staff
Myra DeBeck, the daughter of Vernon pioneers Price and Sophie Ellison, is one of the people who remembers early life in the province in a new book, Voices of B.C. The book, edited by Robert (Lucky) Budd, is based on transcripts of interviews with the province’s pioneers made between 1959 and 1966 by CBC Radio journalist Imbert Orchard. Orchard and recording engineer Ian Stephen interviewed almost 1,000 early settlers, resulting in 2,700 hours of audiotape describing everyday experience and extraordinary events. Budd worked restoring and preserving the tapes, believed to be the largest collection of oral history in the world. “I was able to hear my great-grandfather on one of the tapes. I realized that what I was accessing was unbeliev-
ably important and that what I was getting was a slant on the history of the province that no one had heard before. It’s amazing the way these people were communicating with future generations,” he said. Budd did his 2003 master’s degree at the University of Victoria on how oral history can be used to teach history. The book used only four hours of the tapes with a selection of people from around the province. The chapter on Myra DeBeck, titled This Country Was A Dream, recalls her mother’s rustic life as the first teacher in the area in the 1880s. DeBeck was born in Vernon in 1890 and was educated at Havergal College in Toronto in 1906 and went on to earn her BA from McGill University in Montreal and two years later, her MA in economics, also from McGill. She came back
Robert (Lucky) Budd is editor of Voices of B.C. to Vernon to teach physical education before marrying Howard DeBeck in 1920. DeBeck was active in the community as a member of the Vernon and District Women’s Canadian Club, the Alpine Club of Canada, the University Women’s Club and the Girl Guides of Canada, as well as other local organizations. She and her father helped establish the first provincial park in British Columbia, Strathcona Park on Vancouver island.
DeBeck died in Victoria in 1979 and is buried in the Vernon Cemetery. There are interviews with other early Vernon residents on the tapes but they are not included in the book. “The book really speaks to me,” said Budd. “One of the stories is about the first woman, Sarah Glassey, to own land in B.C., in the Kispiox Valley, in 1911. At the time, people could pre-empt property and if they could clear it and do some building, they could own it.
“Hearing history this way captures the climate of the day and gives a real feeling for the atmosphere. The shortest interview is one hour and the longest is 23 hours but they all contribute something important.” Budd, who said he lives up to his nickname, Lucky, in being able to work with this material, worked on the book for 10 years and hopes he can do more books. “I really am one of the luckiest people to have access to this material and to make it work. This province has such varied landscape with so
many different types of people and experiences and most of them came here in a short period of time from many different backgrounds. I want to make people more aware of our history,” he said. Voices of British Columbia Stories from
Our Frontier, published by Douglas & McIntyre, includes 75 black and white photos, one map, and three CDs. It is available at Amazon and some bookstores around the province. For more information, see www.DOUGLASMCINTYRE.COM.

he B.C. government continues to innovate. First on the continent with an emission-based carbon tax, first in Western Canada to embrace the European-style value added tax, and now, first to plunge into high-stakes Internet casino gambling. Housing and Social Development Minister Rich Coleman did the big rollout for the Vancouver TV cameras recently, but the plan has been known since March. Tom Fletcher A sleepy little website where people can save a trip to the corner store to buy their Lotto Max tickets is given a sudden dose of corporate steroids: online slots, Texas hold ’em poker later this year, and a betting limit jacked up to $10,000 a week. Coleman defended this latest quantum leap in government gambling with a lurid scenario: kids borrowing Mom’s credit card from her purse and logging on for a nolimit spree at a casino site in the Cayman Islands. He claims B.C. gamblers are spending $100 million a year at unregulated sites that siphon profits offshore, and might be crooked to boot. Then there were two more hits to the reputation of B.C. Lottery Corp., already dented by the casual oversight of lottery ticket sales revealed a couple of years ago. Its high-stakes PlayNow.com site was pulled offline a few hours after Coleman’s photo op. The initial explanation was a surge of traffic. Days later BCLC admitted that registered players’ gambling and banking information had been compromised. At about the same time, a leaked document revealed that BCLC was facing $670,000 in fines for paperwork errors in its reporting of large cash transactions to a federal agency known as FINTRAC. This Ottawa bureaucracy was set up to track terrorist financing in the
frantic days after 9/11, and in my considered opinion it is every bit as useful as the long gun registry or taking your shoes off at the airport. The same can be said of B.C.’s own paper tiger, the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch. But let’s leave that aside. The theory here is that organized criminals will bring their pimp and pusher profits into the local B.C. casino to “launder” the money. I’m trying to imagine how this would work. Here’s another “leaked” document to illustrate the situation: To: email@example.com From: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: B.C. casinos Hey Luigi, nice woik getting the laundromat running on the West Coast. Just one problem. Our guys go in there for a week, I give ’em two full hockey bags to wash, they come back with one bag. Don’t get me wrong, it’s nice and clean, but let’s not forget these are the competition’s casinos. And these West Coast guys ain’t playing tiddly winks. I’m gonna take a meeting next week with Big Rich. He seems like a reasonable guy, says there’s room in the market. We’ll see. At least it’ll give me a chance to tell him off about the freakin’ HST. Be careful out there. Big Julie But seriously, one question really matters here: is this an appropriate role for government? Coleman’s answer is that B.C. Lottery Corp. is a business. It exists for one reason, to make money for its four million shareholders. The board of directors decided to spend $325 million to upgrade its network and games, and once they get it working it should be fine. This is the same logic that led to lawyers for that other Crown corporation, BC Ferries, grinding out a chintzy settlement of a thousand bucks or so for passengers who fled the sinking Queen of the North. As Big Julie might say, nothing personal. It’s just business. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. email@example.com

IHA extends health care service into rural areas Morning Star Staff
The Interior Health Authority is launching a new program for transporting patients this fall. High acuity response teams (HART) will consist of critical care nurses responding with B.C. Ambulance staff to transport acutely ill patients from outlying rural areas to higher levels of care. â€œInterior Health serves a large geographic area with a multitude of rural and remote health sites,â€? said Robert Halpenny, IHA president. â€œThis new service supports patient care at those sites and will ensure acutely ill patients who need a higher level of care are transported to the appropriate sites with highly-trained clinicians looking after them.â€? In more complex cases, a respiratory therapist will be called in to assist. HART nurses and respiratory therapists will be based at larger referral hospitals where they will support emergency departments and intensive care units when not involved in the transport of patients. The team is expected to reduce the number of times nurses and physicians from rural communities are required to assist in transport of acutely ill patients. â€œWe know the loss of a nurse or physician for an extended period of time has a significant impact on the ability to maintain service when these nurses and physicians may be the only clinicians on duty serv-
ing the local community,â€? said Kelly Murphy,
IHAâ€™s corporate director of medical affairs.
Teams will start operating initially in the
Thompson, Cariboo, Shuswap and Kootenay
regions this fall, and additional teams will
be based at other sites in the future.

Witnesses say drowned man appeared in distress BARB BROUWER Black Press
A 26-year-old man who drowned in the water of Magna Bay in the North Shuswap has been identified as Darrell Bradley Johnson of Aden, Alta. Witnesses saw Johnson fall into the lake from the back of his boat shortly before 9 a.m. Friday, July 30. RCMP report Johnson was working on his boat, a 20-ft. Tige pleasure craft, which was attached to a buoy about 30 feet offshore and was not wearing a lifejacket.
“The male was positioned near the rear swim deck, with the boat running, and engine idling,” says RCMP Cpl Dan Moskaluk. “Witnesses on scene stated the male appeared to be in medical distress moments before he fell into the water and sunk beneath the surface” Bystanders reacted immediately, with attempts at a free dive rescue; however Johnson could not be located in the deep water. Search and rescue, fire rescue, ambulance, the Chase RCMP patrol vessel and the Kamloops RCMP helicopter were called out.
KIA SUMMER SALE
Some nine members of Shuswap Search & Rescue responded but were stood down when a diver found the body in 45 feet of water a little more than an hour later. Johnson was pronounced deceased at the scene. An autopsy was scheduled for Thursday to determine the exact cause of death. RCMP do not believe drugs and/or alcohol were contributing factors. The Chase RCMP investigators and Victim Assistance worker assisted members of the immediate family who witnessed the tragic and sudden incident.

Honey, it has been nine years since the Lord came for you and I miss you every day. I think of you when I go to bed and think of you as soon as I get up. The reason why I still feel this way is when I met you many years ago, you opened a door for me, and when I walked through that door, you changed my life forever; and I believe that is why. I have such a hard time to let go. I will never forget you. That is why I love you so much and always will. I miss you and some day you will be there to open that door for me again.
