Swimmer drowns in lake
Morning Star Staff

Don Coultes treads lightly through the Bishop Wild Bird Sanctuary while following a fawn with his camera at the ready. The sanctuary, which is on Coldstream Creek Road in Coldstream, was open for public tours Sunday.
A 25-year-old man has drowned in Kalamalka Lake near Oyama. Lake Country police are investigating the incident which occurred shortly before noon Tuesday, near Kaloya Regional Park. “The investigation has determined that a man jumped into the water off a boat for a swim and never resurfaced,” said Sgt. Ann Morrison, with RCMP media relations. The man is from Kelowna and he had been boating with friends. “Alcohol is not a factor,” said Morrison. Access to the area continued to be restricted at The Morning Star’s press time so various agencies could conduct a thorough search. Among those involved in the search were the RCMP, Vernon Search and Rescue members and the Lake Country Fire Department. A police helicopter was also assisting with the search.

determine your skills and referrals to other services. “It’s available for people looking for work or looking at retraining,” said Wejr. “Often people can’t drive to Vernon for services and if it’s difficult to access, they may not do it.” Of the total number of clients registered at the Enderby office, 60 per cent found employment while the remainder returned to school or opened their own businesses. The province recently announced plans to reduce the number of service providers across
B.C. from 400 to 120 employment service centres. Centres will continue in Vernon and Lumby but those in Enderby and Armstrong are set to close. “It is anticipated these ESCs will provide satellite and/or itinerant services to nearby smaller communities and will also sub-contract with other agencies to provide specialized services to targeted groups of unemployed B.C. residents,” stated information from NOEES. “In addition to cutbacks to contracts, another barrier to the capacity of community-based ser-
vice providers to successfully bid on contracts is the proposed lack of cash advances to finance the start-up costs.” With the recession still having an impact on many people and limited job opportunities, Wejr insists the province must provide assistance to residents in rural areas. “Small communities often need it more because we don’t have all of the facilities,” she said. “You can’t just hop on the bus and go downtown to the employment office.”

Police seek suspect in assault RCMP are seeking a suspect after an assault and robbery in Okanagan Landing Friday. A 36-year-old local man had just put air in his tires at the Esso station at Okanagan Landing and Tronson roads at about 11 p.m. when he was attacked.
â€œHe was sitting in his vehicle and an individual grabbed him by the throat and robbed him of his wallet and cell phone,â€? said Gord Molendyk, Vernon RCMP detachment spokesman. The suspect is described as a Caucasian male, about six feet tall and thin. He was driving a small, white pickup truck.
The victim was not seriously injured during the incident. Officers are currently trying to determine if there was video surveillance cameras at the gas station. Anyone with any information on this crime is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

A conflict between the Village of Lumby and a business over industrial noise may be muffled. On Monday, council agreed to sign an agreement to establish hours of operation for Gudeit Bros. Contractingâ€™ wood chipping activities. â€œItâ€™s a compromise,â€? said Mayor Kevin Acton. â€œIt gives the business an ability to run while letting people get a good nightâ€™s sleep.â€? Last year, the village received complaints about wood chipKevin Acton ping machines running late in the evening and during early morning hours. Under the agreement, Gudeit Bros. will be allowed to chip wood from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m., but the chipper can be warmed up at 6:30 a.m. The village will withdraw all anti-noise bylaw violation notices against the company. Gudeit Bros. will also drop claims relating to the alleged use of its property by the village. Between Aug. 17 and Sept. 4, 2009, the fire department used a portion of Gudeit land for access while the Shuswap Avenue bridge was closed for upgrades. As part of the agreement, the village will not enforce its anti-noise bylaw against the wood chipping operation as long as the sound does not increase or vary, and Gudeit Bros. abides by the hours stipulated in the agreement. Gudeit Bros.â€™ lawyer is currently reviewing the agreement. â€œIt is our intention to work with the village to find a solution for the hours of operation that will be palatable for both the village and our business operation,â€? said Shelley Gudeit, who is with the company. â€œLumby has had a reduced level of industry in recent years and in order to maintain its current infrastructure, it needs to work closely with local business, industry and its citizens to come up with viable solutions for existing issues and for future prospects. â€œ

Impaired driving cases steady for officers RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Drinking and driving continues to be a problem on Vernon area roads. Last week, the RCMP recorded six cases of impaired driving and issued eight 24-hour driving prohibitions. It was four impaired and six 24-hour notices during the week before. “We don’t see a decline in impaireds over the summer,” said
Gord Molendyk, detachment spokesman. “In the summertime, there are a good number of people who go to the beaches or parties.” Summer has become a busier time for impaired driving for the North Okanagan RCMP than Christmas. Molendyk admits the RCMP are concerned about the ongoing trend because the public is placed Gord Molendyk at risk. “The attitude that, ‘It won’t
happen to me,’ or ‘I won’t get caught,’ is still prevalent,” he said. This fall, tough new impaired driving legislation will come into force across B.C. Instead of issuing a 24-hour suspension, police will be able to impose a 90-day driving ban, a $500 fine and impound the vehicle for 30 days. The fee for reinstating a suspended licence will be increased from $100 to $250, and drivers will also be billed $700 for towing and 30 days of vehicle impoundment. Failing a roadside test will also mean
mandatory participation in the province’s “responsible driver program” at a cost of $1,420. The changes mean one roadside test could cost a driver $3,750 before driving again, and that is before any criminal code charges and suspensions that may also result. Molendyk expects the new rules will lead to fewer cases of impaired driving on local roads. “I hope the awareness will come out that they can’t afford to drink and drive,” said Molendyk.
Swimmer struck by boat at beach Morning Star Staff
An arrest has been made after a swimmer was struck by a boat in Lake Country. On Sunday at 6:35 p.m., RCMP responded to a complaint of a Malibu boat hitting a swimmer near a beach on Okanagan Centre Road. “The victim who had been struck, declined emergency health services, and stated that the boat hit him in the shoulder after doing a 180-degree turn at a full throttle near the shore,”
said Sgt. Rick McIsaac, “The operator of the boat was subsequently identified by police and was arrested near the scene and taken to the Kelowna detachment for processing.” Charges of dangerous operation of a vessel are being recommended to Crown Counsel for a 35-year-old man from Pitt Meadows. The man was later released on a promise to appear in court in November.

Few details are still being released on Vernon’s first homicide of 2010. Nathan Mayrhofer was found dead in a thirdfloor apartment at the Villacare Place Apartments on 33rd Avenue Aug. 5. “There won’t be any further details released,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesman. “They (officers) still continue to investigate and will for some time.” Molendyk would not Mayrhofer get into specifics about the 32-year-old Lumby man being dismembered. “We are not releasing information that may jeopardize a (court) case from being held here,” he said. Molendyk says it’s still not known why Mayrhofer was in the apartment of the homicide suspect. “They worked together several years prior,” he said. RCMP have had contact with Mayrhofer’s family. “They are coping reasonably well under the circumstances,” said Molendyk, adding the incident has also been traumatic for the suspect’s family. “Both families are affected by this tragedy. One was lost and another has to deal with the details around the case of the homicide.” The accused, Kenneth Barter, 37, is undergoing a 30-day psychiatric remand. Barter is expected to make his next court appearance on Sept. 9.

Drugs found in vehicle RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A Vernon police officer got more than he bargained for during a routine stop Sunday. The officer noticed a vehicle without valid insurance in the 3300 block of Okanagan Landing Road at 11 p.m. When he questioned the driver, the officer was told the license plates had been placed on the vehicle to make it look like there was insurance. “The stickers on the plate were a year or two old,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP detachment spokesman. And when the officer asked for a driver’s license, he was told that no such document existed. Drugs were also located inside the vehicle. “The suspected drugs are ecstasy and cocaine,” said Molendyk. It’s anticipated the suspect will face charges under the Motor Vehicle Act and the Controlled Substance Act. “I’m not 100 per cent sure if he owned the vehicle,” said Molendyk.

And the survey says...
kanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes didn’t stray from the party line when he was questioned about scrapping the mandatory long-form census. Reading from the Harper hymnal, Mayes indicated that Canadians were being muscled by the Stats Canada stormtroopers. “The issue for us is there are threatening messages on the forms. If you don’t fill them out, you could be jailed or fined,” he said. “We don’t want to make it compulsory.” I’ll have to remember that when income tax comes due next year — Richard Rolke just forget the threats of jail and penalties if I don’t send in the form by the deadline. And that required personal information like whether I am married or have children can be cast aside. Revenue Canada is full of pussycats — they’ll understand. But while the Conservatives refuse to budge, the opposition to replacing the mandatory long-form census with a voluntary version continues to grow. And the latest is that notorious hot bed of radicalism — the City of Vernon. “Without the long form, we don’t have access to labour force data. We also can’t get information on income levels,” said Kevin Poole, the city’s economic development officer. A lot of this information is scrutinized by companies shopping around for a town to invest in. “They want the data to be the same and the majority of the data comes from the long-form census,” said Poole. So the government that claims to be probusiness and to have led us out of the desolation known as recession is stripping away valuable information that businesses and economic development offices across the

country rely on. Municipalities, provinces and non-profit groups also depend on data from the census to ensure social programs are in place to meet the diverse needs of the public. Since no tangible reason has been given for the census changes, the actions of Ottawa can only be described as ideological. There is skepticism about the use of statistics, whether it’s over climate change, crime rates or the census, because they go directly against Conservative beliefs. But there’s absolutely no questioning numbers that show Harper and the gang in the lead over Canada’s other political parties. Some of the questions on the census form may also offend the more libertarian roots of the Conservative Party - those individuals who believe government has no place in the private lives of Canadians. But pandering to a fringe element just to preserve votes is not how a country should be run. Instead of repeating sound bites from the prime minister and Industry Minister Tony Clement, Mayes should consider why those supporting the government on this issue wouldn’t fill a phone booth and those opposed represent a vast cross-section of society. What other issue could galvanize the Canadian Medical Association Journal, the Fellowship of Christian Evangelicals, the Vancouver Board of Trade, the right-wing C.D. Howe Institute and the Canadian Labour Congress? As a former mayor of Salmon Arm, Mayes should understand the relevancy of statistics when it comes to cities determining what programs are required and where money should be spent. You don’t just move ahead if there’s nothing to back it up. Vernon council may only consist of seven people but they are the elected representatives for the largest community in Mayes’ riding. Their concerns deserve to be actually considered instead of just handing out more stale rhetoric.
Anyone who may think the provincial government is going overboard in its campaign against impaired drivers just needs to look at the local statistics to know that is not the case. Just last week the RCMP recorded six impaired driving cases and issued eight 24-hour driving prohibitions. The week before it was four impaireds and six 24-hour prohibitions. These numbers are upsetting enough but knowing that the unrecorded number is much more significant means people are not getting the message that impaired driving shouldn’t, and won’t, be tolerated on our roads. The summer period is now a bigger concern for police than the Christmas holidays. People seem to understand that they need to make arrangements to get home from the staff holiday party but not necessarily for the summer barbecue season. Therefore one has to agree that B.C.’s new tougher rules to deal with this serious infraction are warranted. To some it might have seemed initially like another Victoria money grab but what does one do when drivers continually ignore warning after warning and campaign after campaign? Hit ‘em where it hurts – in the pocketbook. The changes mean one failed roadside test could cost a driver $3,750 before driving again, and that’s before any criminal code charges and suspensions that may come into affect. It’s harsh, it’s a crackdown, and, apparently judging by the local situation, it’s needed to get the message across that none of us can afford to drink and drive, for the sake of all concerned.

Emergency room a travesty
ecently, my wife, Heather, had to go to the emergency room at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. She spent four days in the ER and until one is unfortunate enough to land in there, you don't realize just what a crowded, terrible place it really is. The staff wonderful. They desperately try to make the best of a difficult situation. But to do so, they have to literally run to try and ease the pain and the ordeal of their patients. Most of the patients are the elderly and because many of the country hospitals have been closed, they arrive from the outlying districts. When we were there, there were 170 patients and only 130 beds. They were literally crammed and jammed into alleys, doorways and staff quarters on cots and beds of various sizes and shapes. Often when visiting, I had to stand as there was no NEW ECONOMY It would seem that the residents of Vernon may have found their niche in the new economy according to the mayor and our MLA who were privileged to attend a gala, by invitation only, pre-opening festivities for the dazzling new wellness centre resort that has been built high above Okanagan Lake. Words were plentiful from the numerous politicians present to describe the proposed “jobs, jobs, jobs” that are becoming available to local residents that are weary from an economy fraught with unemployment, food banks, waiting lines, school closures, new and improved taxes, and the rising costs for just about everything. Our salvation, our new niche, it is said, will come from specialization in catering to the super rich visitors from Europe and beyond. The premier recently added his voice to the accolades for this splendid display of capitalism in all of its glory. This new economy is really just another manifestation of the old economy that is based on the trickle-down economic system of helping the poor by first helping the rich. The road to Wellsville may be paved with gold for some, but for others, it is the same old path. The local peasants might rise up in protest over this determina-
There is very little privacy. I was standing near my wife while an elderly gentleman was defecating right next to me in a port-a-potty. It's embarrassing for him, me and everyone else who was lying nearby. Not to mention the gagging smell. This is more than a travesty, it's a crime. Forget the new tower that is being built. That has been designated for surgery, maternity and machines. These ER occupants have spent their lives paying for medical insurance that is now being siphoned off to help pay for the Olympics, the pockets of politicians, HST, ad infinitum. The poor are paying for the rich who can afford private health care. What can be done about this you may ask. Well, one day in four years, this beautiful country actually becomes a true democracy. We can vote. Bob Lanaway

tion of what opportunities should be possible except that they have been taught all of their lives to be good citizens, to lower their expectations, and to accept authority. David Giddings COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT As a representative of the City of Armstrong official community plan advisory committee, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all Armstrong residents who have already taken the time to complete the online survey, chat with us at the farmers market, and take part in the evening discussions on key local issues regarding the official community plan. The variety of ideas, suggestions and concerns expressed to date has been inspiring to us all. To quickly recap, an official community plan (OCP) is a vision developed by the community to manage the social, economic, environmental and physical future of an area by guiding land use, development and transportation issues. An official community plan articulates the goals and policies of the community on issues such as housing, transportation, parks, green space and community facilities. Som why is it so important that Armstrong residents get involved in the OCP process? Quite simply, it is the wants and
needs expressed by local residents during this planning process that will shape Armstrong's future. Your direct input will help in developing a visionary and inspirational official community plan that reflects the community's desired future. Basically, by being involved you can help determine the direction that we want our community to go. We need your assistance in answering key questions such as: Where do you think development should happen? What does "affordable housing" mean and what should it look like? What steps should we take to become more sustainable as a community? How can we become a more economically resilient community? It is my hope that all residents of Armstrong will take the opportunity to get involved by attending the various events taking place over the summer months that are displayed on posters around town and by filling out an online survey at www.cityofarmstrong.bc.ca. If you require a paper copy of the survey, they are available at Armstrong city hall and the legion in Armstrong. Jessie Anne Gamble A DISGRACE I would like to express my feelings about the oversight of whomever is responsible for the beauty
of this city. I have lived here for 52 years and have slowly seen the beauty of the city disintegrate. A friend and I walk through the city streets and and downtown area three times a week and see many things. My main complaint today is the Old Timers Monument on the corner of 30th Avenue and 35th Street. Oh, you didn't know it was there — perhaps if it weren't for so many tall weeds around it you would be able to see it. It's a disgrace in the upkeep of such an important monument, considering we just spent a great deal of money on the city hall grounds. Please, someone clean up the mess and show our old timers we really care. Ollie Tischik COOK LOCAL I was very disappointed in Cathi Litzenberger's column. First of all, she should be promoting local farmer's markets and not comparing them to stores that are open year round. Our local farmers have only a small window in which to make enough money to sustain them through the winter. Secondly, why is she printing desserts that are made with canned or frozen fruits when there
are so many beautiful fresh fruits available right here in our own backyard? Try some recipes with today's fruits and save the canned ones for the winter. Julie McLean

The City of Vernon is being accused of carving up an environmentally sensitive piece of property. Council is considering rezoning 3097 Davison Rd. from agricultural to rural small holdings so the city-owned site can be subdivided into two lots. “It’s the only greenspace left along Bella Vista Road and they want to cut it into half,” said resident Rose Pollock. The entire parcel of land is 23 acres in size and within the Agricultural Land Reserve. Dale Rintoul The eastern, nine-acre portion is largely agricultural while the remainder has steep rocky slopes. A staff report indicates the rocky area has high ecological values, including habitat for the rattlesnake. “If this area is to be considered as parkland, it should be a protected natural reserve with applicable fencing and signage to prevent people and domestic animals from accessing the park, damaging the natural environment on this site or creating areas for wildlife conflicts,” states the report. However, Pollock claims subdividing the land will
disrupt wildlife corridors and goes against previous pro-environmental comments made by some council members. “They are not keeping their promises to what they were elected to do,” she said. “Those are nine wonderful acres up there. It’s grassland and a buffer zone.” Pollock also points out that the public has rallied behind conservation of the site before. “They (city) promised us in 2005 they wouldn’t sell the property and now they are selling it,” she said. City officials admit that interest from private interests led to a review of the land. “Someone made an offer to council to purchase all of the property,” said planner Dale Rintoul. However, he said that instead of disposing of the entire site, a decision has been made to seek subdivision so part of it can be sold or leased for agricultural uses, while the rest remains as a public asset. Under the ALR, farm buildings would be allowed on most of the nine acres, but there could be a nobuild covenant on part of the western portion. “People on Bella Vista Road could still view the natural area,” said Rintoul. Even if council proceeds with rezoning, the Agricultural Land Commission must still authorize subdivision.

Two Roots and Blues artists coming to Vernon this fall KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Brutally hot weather didn’t stop music fans from pouring into the gates for this past weekend’s 18th annual Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival. Although numbers were down just slightly from last year, the sights and sounds did not disappoint. Those who missed the weekend, or want to catch up with two of Canada’s most prophetic performers who were at the festival, have the chance when both Gord Downie and Shane Koyczan appear at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre, Sept. 26 and Oct. 22 respectively. Also known as the lead singer of The Tragically Hip, Downie will be joined by his other band, The Country of Miracles, featuring Josh Finlayson, Dave Clark, Julie Doiron, Dale Morningstar and John Press, who also played with him at Roots and Blues. Downie is touring on the release of his third solo album, The Grand Bounce, which features infectious first single, The East Wind, now playing on radio stations across the country. “The Grand Bounce means desertion,” said
JAMES MURRAY/SALMON ARM OBSERVER
Spoken word artist Shane Koyczan (left) and singer-songwriter Gord Downie of Tragically Hip fame are coming to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre to give respective concerts Oct. 22 and Sept. 26. Downie. “I came across it reading Son of the Morning Star, Evan S. Connell’s epic book about Custer and The Battle of the Little Bighorn.” The Grand Bounce was produced and mixed by Chris Walla, guitarist for American band Death Cab for Cutie, and was recorded
at the Bath House near Downie’s hometown of Kingston, Ont. “I thought that Chris might like working with the Miracles and they him,” said Downie. “I thought this would be the best way to serve the songs. These were some of the hunches that brought us together for two weeks last
August, me and Chris and The Country of Miracles.” A special presentation of the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Society, Koyzcan will be joined by band The Short Story Long for his show in Vernon. A former Okanagan University College student, who now lives in Penticton, Koyczan is a world champion slam poet, last seen internationally for his awe-inspiring spoken word piece at the opening ceremonies of the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver. As at Roots and Blues, Koyczan and trio The Short Story Long (Olivia Mennell, Maiya Robbie and Stefan Bienz) will breathe life into the new genre of talk-rock for their Vernon show. The spoken word artist may even sing a few numbers as he did so aptly at the festival. Tickets to see Downie and The Country of Miracles Sept. 26 go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. and cost $37 (all ages) at the Ticket Seller box office. Tickets to see Koyczan and The Short Story Long Oct. 22 are now on sale and cost $25 for adults, $22 for seniors and $20 for students, also at the Ticket Seller.

Guitarist plays for homeless FOR ADVANCE TICKETS GO TO cineplex.com

Morning Star Staff
Chris Madsen doesn’t mind asking for spare change, and he’s got his guitar case open to help those in need. The well-known guitarist, and former music school owner, is about to put on a concert to help the homeless in Vernon. Organized by Marty Kelly, who will open the show with a set of comedy, the concert takes place at the Powerhouse Theatre Friday. “This was Marty’s idea to do the show, and together we decided to direct the money to the homeless that are really ready for a change,” said Madsen. “We decided to approach it in a different way and thought the homeless shelter would probably be the best way to start.” Entry to the concert is by donation, and all are welcome to attend, however, Madsen is hoping people will open their pocketbooks to support those who are willing to re-start their lives. “I don’t want to support a person in a cycle of poverty, I want to support a person who wants a change and is willing to break that cycle,” he said. Madsen will perform two sets of his original material, some old and some new, at the concert. His last CD, Flight of the Seagull, released in 2006, is about to be followed by his newest release, Song of the Troubadour, which includes an accompanying book. “The book was channeled from me,” said Madsen. “I was writing some lyrics and then the lyrics turned into a page. It flowed from there.” Madsen hopes to have Song of the Troubadour ready for Friday’s concert, and those wanting a sneak peak, can visit his website (www.chrismadsen.com.) “I’ve been creating constantly.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your awareness of small details is extremely acute, which is well-and-good. Just don’t become so obsessed with what and how to do things that you become unproductive. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) When with a sensitive friend, weigh your words with considerable care. An off-thecuff, thoughtless remark could be so abrasive to him/ her that it leaves a scar no bandage could cover. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Being in the presence of a penny-pincher is likely to make you so uncomfortable that there will be no way to relax and have a good time. Select companions who are equally as generous as you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Be extra mindful of your behavior and remarks when in the presence of anyone who could influence your success or failure. Everything you say or do may be critically evaluated and catalogued. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A nosy person who doesn’t have anybody’s best interests at heart is likely to try to pry unflattering information about mutual acquaintances from you. Be on guard, because s/he is pretty tricky. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although they may be wellintentioned, friends with financial tips are likely to be unqualified to give any advice. Do not take anything at face value when it comes to investment information. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) For the sake of your reputation, be prepared to stand behind any commitment you make, especially if it is financial. If you advise
another and s/he loses, it needs to be on your back. ARIES (March 21-April 19) If someone asks you to perform a critical task, don’t pretend you can do it or think you can, even though you have no experience. You’ll be held accountable if you botch things up. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Little things that appear to be insignificant can actually turn out to be vitally important, so do not take even the smallest detail for granted, especially those that to your financial affairs. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) In order to succeed, you need to place great importance on praising people while avoiding criticism of others. If you desire to maintain harmony within your home or workplace, let tolerance set the tone. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Wishful thinking isn’t going to get anything done. If you want something to be accomplished, be prepared to roll up your sleeves and swing into action.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot ﬂashes and weight gain. What can I do? A: These are just a few symptoms of hormone dysfunction. You need hormone testing (saliva or blood tests) to identify imbalances. Treatment includes the use of bioidentical, plant based hormones that closely duplicate hormones your body produces. Natural hormones also slow the aging process.

Bridge by Phillip Alder This deal is the same as yesterday’s. Then, when West led his singleton club against four spades, East erred by covering dummy’s six with his jack. West, reading this as a suit-preference signal for hearts, took the second trick and shifted to a heart, letting the contract make. East should have played his club three at trick one, signaling for diamonds. Then the contract would have failed. However, South could have made the contract without requiring the misdefense -- how? As I also mentioned yesterday, after opener rebids, it is a good idea to use some form of checkback. This is an
economical inquiry, two clubs or two diamonds, that allows responder to look for the best game (or slam) without being forced to leap like a lamb in springtime with his rebid. West’s club lead is surely a singleton. If so, and he has two or three low trumps, or three trumps to the ace or king, South has no chance. Declarer must assume that West has only honor-doubleton. But then South must stop East from gaining the lead while West still has a low spade in his hand. And East’s entry would have to be the diamond ace. At trick two, South cashes his heart ace. He then overtakes his heart queen with dummy’s king
and calls for the heart 10. When East plays a low heart, declarer discards his diamond queen -- a so-called dentist’s coup. West is welcome to that trick, but since East can no longer gain the lead while West still has the spade ﬁve in his hand, the contract makes.

Barbecue supports students JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
Back to school season is here, and several local organizations are doing what they can to make sure every child goes back with his head held high. Staples, on 32nd Street, is having a barbecue and bake sale, as well as a silent auction on Thursday to raise funds for the Back to School Project. This jointly organized program by the Family Resource Centre, the White Valley Community Resource Centre, the Armstrong Community Services Boys and Girls Club, and the North Okanagan Youth and Family Services Society, provides families in need with school supplies. “Last year we provided packages for about 400 students, and this year we’re hoping to do the same,” said Jan Shumay, director of services and
operations for NOYFSS. “And thanks to Staples, I think we’ll do it,” she said. Last year the barbecue raised $2,000, but this year Staples is setting their goal at $5,000. All the funds raised from the sale of hamburgers, hotdogs, pop and baked goods, and the items at the silent auction (donated by local businesses), will go directly to the Back to School Project. “We have also been accepting donations from customers at the till, and we have collection jars at other businesses,” said Deanna Schack, business support manager with Staples. “We want to ensure that these kids can walk into school with their heads up,” said Shumay. The barbecue will be held on Thursday in the Staples parking lot from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Kelowna’s Glenn Lear (38:34) and Enderby’s Jesse Heckrodt (39:41) rounded out the top three in a field of 130 runners, who tackled the hilly course under scorching heat. Coldstream’s Anthony Barber was seventh overall in 43:37, Rick Jenker
secured first in the men’s 55-59 in 45:22 and Vernon’s Dan Kunzelman rated first in the men’s 45-49 in 45:34. Jim Simms (46:33) and Lance Sweeney (47:02) finished in the top 20, while first-year racer Shanda Hill rated first in the women’s 20-29 division, finishing in 52:36. Second-place age group finishes went to Colleen Edgar (women’s 35-39) and Jill Devenish (women’s 60-64), who finished in 52:36 and 57:03 respectively. Bronze-medal performances were turned in by John Chisholm (men’s 50-54, 49:15), Coldstream’s John Arih (men’s 40-44, 52:35), Alanna Simms (women’s 35-39, 53:47),

goals for Bosman, who trailed 4-0 at the half. In a North Okanagan Men's Soccer League make-up game Sunday night, North Enderby Timber thumped Davidson & Co. Dynamite 9-1 behind Brent Poulsen's hat trick. Both teams played with 10 men with the Nitros going down to nine midway through the first half after an injury. Johnny Orton and Devin Janke each scored twice for NET, while Mike Watson and Danny Stein supplied singles. Stein was in net until switching positions with Poulsen after the Timber went up 7-0. The age-less Robert Ross placed one just out of reach of Poulsen for the Nitros' goal.
Vernon BMX Club rider Kevin Hill claimed first overall in the A Pro division at the ABA national series #7 and #8 last weekend in Prince George. A total of 22 Vernon racers went up against a field of 169 North American riders under scorching temperatures and sunny skies. Other Vernon racers collecting first-place finishes included Ian Knopf, Brenden Davies, Gavin Medema, Lennox Winslow and Shylo Orchard. After missing the first half of the racing season due to injury, comeback queen Brittany Luchene took home seconds all weekend, as did Chris Spence and the sister-brother duo of Faith and Jaydon Riddick. Dawson Luchene, Dean Botterill, Jake Spence, Jared Fitt, Jennifer Bitz, Ken Botterill and Porter Trevlyn all scored third-place finishes, while newcomer Hanya Riddick also made the podium with pro Mani Kawaguchi. Notable mention went to Aaron Botterill, Xavier Bitz and Landon Fitt.
Okanagan Spring Brewery spotted the Silver Stars a 1-0 lead before scoring three quick first-half goals on the way to a 3-1 Capri Insurance Men's 45+ Soccer League victory Monday night at Marshall Field #3. Mike Lloyd scored twice and Sleeman's Honey Brown Man of the Match Chris Reeves added a beauty, tucking one in the corner after beating two players. Mike Zuber got the win as the 12-6 Brew crew dedicated the game to teammate Doug Massie who remains in Kelowna hospital recovering from a brain aneurism. "The team's prayers go out to the Massie family, and we look forward to Doug's fast recovery so he can join us in cheers at the year end," said defender Akbal Mund. Ian Murphy and Kevin Cowley linked well with Murphy shooting home low and hard for the Stars, who dipped to 7-9-2. The Vernon Hi-Pro Sportswear Camels grounded Lake Country FC 5-1 at Marshall #1. Al Murphy, on a nifty deflection, Gord Howard on a penalty kick which went in off the right post, Ron Krause on a 30-yard corker with his new white cleats, Rob Hulstein with a long chip shot and Dan Zieske with a 20-yard rocket, handled the 16-1-1 Humpbacks' offence. Zieske ran miles in central
midfield and earned the CN Rail Man of the Match. Lake Country played the opening 15 minutes with just eight players but held off the hard-charging Camels before recruits arrived. Brian Dolman, who showed up for the final 20 minutes, buried a rebound off a hard, low Mike Ley shot that Dave Dutcher dove to tip, with about 10 minutes remaining. Salmon Arm Credit Union tripped up visiting Vernon Big O Tire Ogopogos 6-1. The hosts exploded to take an early 4-0 lead before Ruben Cerventez responded on a low drive from outside the 18-yard line. Forward Mark Wasylyk had numerous breakaways and was stoned by Salmon Arm's outstanding keeper. Vernon midfielder Paul Hunter drilled a blast from outside the 18 that just missed the far post. Salmon Arm (5-13) added two more goals in the second half on free kicks just ouside the box, catching Ogopogo keeper Yogi Kongsdorf off guard. Henry Czerwonka was the 3-11-4 Ogopogos' Aqua Man of the Match, playing a highintensity game, controlling and dominating in several situations. The North Country Appraisals Kickers stuffed Cantina's Pub 6-1 at Mission #61 Sportsfield. Wil Kruiper supplied four goals, one on a penalty kick, while singles came from Matt

Knights ready for sophomore season Morning Star Staff
Young, fast and fit. That pretty much sums up the talent attending the North Okanagan Knights' main selection camp last weekend at the Nor-Val Sports Centre in Armstrong. New head coach Sylvain Leone, of Winfield, was highly impressed, choosing 35 players from a list of 65, to continue with the Knights in a conditioning camp this week. The Knights will hold regular practices Aug. 23-24 before hosting the defending league and Western Canadian champion Revelstoke Grizzlies Wednesday, Aug. 25. "It was a young camp in general, and a lot of '93s (17-year-olds) showed well," said Leone. "We're going to be a skating team and we'll have to score by committee." The Knights are a long ways from printing their Kootenay International Junior Hockey League program since many prospects will also be checking out junior A camps starting next week. "Most of our veterans are going off to junior A camps and we wish them well, and if we get them back, it's a bonus. It's our job to help them get to the next level." Leone said the Knights were pleasantly surprised at the poise and hustle showed by a few 16-year-olds (teams are allowed to carry two 16s). "We offered spots to two of them and Brendan Jost of Kelowna has accepted," said Leone. "He showed extremely well in camp. He worked hard on his conditioning and it
paid off. He's a head-ups defenceman." Jost racked up 2-6-8 and 50 penalty minutes with the Major Midget Kelowna Rockets last season. Leone said the Mulcahy brothers of Kelowna – Brett and Sean – were also "outstanding" all weekend. Sean, a d-man, has committed to the Knights, while Brett (2135-56 with the Quad Rockets last season) will try out with the B.C. Hockey League Westside Warriors. Another set of Kelowna brothers – Patrick and Eric Chor – also stood out in Armstrong, where Team White won the intra-squad game 8-3 Sunday morning. The Knights, who won 11 games to finish 15th in the 17-team KIJHL in their expansion year, must go with an experienced No. 1 goalie, but they aren't banking on any of their three returning net detectives. Christian Karl, Chris Hurry and Chris Solecki are all booked for junior A camps. Assistant coaches Kris Mallette of Kelowna and Shawn Webb of Armstrong, and Vernon's J.C. Colvin, trainer and strength and conditioning coach, all helped at the camp. The Knights, who visit Revelstoke Sept. 3 for a pre-season game, open their regular schedule Friday, Sept. 10 at home against the Sicamous Eagles. Fans wishing to serve as billets are urged to call general manager Chuck Gallacher at 250-979-8999. Leone, 40, guided the Kelowna-based Okanagan Rockets to the B.C. Midget AAA

Gloria Regier was low gross in the second flight (188) in front of Linda Bridgeman (192) and Ardene Howe (193).

Helen Jagow took second low net in the first flight at 144, while Ginger Jalonen carded 146 for third. Karen Mosure claimed the second flight low net at 142, followed by Sharen Kripps at 145 and Sheryll Bissell at 146.

Closest-to-the-pin shots were recorded Saturday by Cindy Hoffman, Kripps and Joyce Todd. Longest drives (No. 8) came from Zimmerman, Bissell, Ruth Hagen and Todd. On Sunday, Zimmerman, Marj Griffin and Lockert pocketed KPs, while long drives came from Allen, Howe, Lockert and Thorburn.

The Sun (4-1) will look to get their house back in order on Saturday night when they visit the winless Chilliwack Huskers (0-4). In Nanaimo, the Sun lacked intensity and focus, at times, on both sides of the ball. The running game failed to gain traction against a revamped Raiders defensive front, while quarterback Bobby Davis was sacked five times. The defence – which yielded an 80-yard run by Jordan Botel on the first play from scrimmage – had its fair share of missed tackles and blown assignments. Still, McCall credited his Sun for battling to the finish and very nearly rallying for the victory in the final

The upside of the four-point loss is that the Sun has clinched the season series (4642) between the teams and any tiebreaker with the Raiders would go Okanagan's way – meaning a first-place finish remains entirely in the Sun's hands. "Of course, that's in the back of your mind, it's good to know that we still have our own destiny in our hands," McCall said. "We don't want to look too far down the road, but if we win out, first is ours. I'm biased, but I think we have the best group of athletes in the league and we can only beat ourselves. "Sometimes a loss is a blessing," he added. "We were humbled, and next time we meet

Editor’s note: Following is the second in a series to promote the 2010 Kidney Walk. LINDA WAGENSVELD Special to The Morning Star
Grace MacDougall celebrated 61 years of marriage to her husband Mac by going on an Alaskan cruise. Despite the increasing dangers of kidney renal failure, they embarked July 20 for a seven-day adventure together. Medical advice had recommended Mac begin dialysis immediately to support his life. He declined, wishing to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity with his wife. He maintained that he would begin dialysis as soon as they returned to their home in Vernon. “Several days into the cruise, he felt ill during a cocktail party, so I attended alone,” said Grace. “When I went back to our room later to ask him to join me for supper, he declined again, instead asking me for help in washing up. Afraid of falling in the shower, he proceeded to sponge bath. “Mac dressed himself in trousers and a T-shirt. Then in a very uncharacteristic manner, he placed personal belongings aside. He took off his watch and removed his wallet from his pocket, two items he seldom parted with.” He sat on the side of his bed, feeling increasingly weak. The couple made the decision to call an ambulance, and he was taken on the long drive to Fort Neilson. Here, three nurses attended him as his life failed. Grace held his hand in the final moments. She felt even then the return of his hand pressed to hers. This became their final farewell. “I had a long, lonely bus trip back to Vernon accompanied by my cruise companions, whose support and kindness helped me endure this time,” she said. Back at their apartment, a phone message awaited, urging Mac to begin dialysis at once. Mac had been diagnosed with kidney disease during heart surgery 10 years ago when it was discovered his creatine levels were high, indicating toxins in his blood. For the following years the indomitable Mac controlled his disease with diet-restriction monitored by a dietician’s advise every three months as well as medications.
Grace feels strongly they had no regrets on their decision to delay dialysis for an anniversary vacation. “When I look back to see how things could have been at the last…looking forward to assisted living and dialysis,” she said. “I can’t bring him back.” The 2010 Kidney Walk is dedicated to Malcolm (Mac) MacDougall. Sponsored by the Kidney Foundation of Canada, the walk takes place Aug. 29 at the DND grounds (army camp) in Vernon, starting at 10 a.m. This year’s walk co-ordinator is Susan Mills of Enderby. She’s looking forward to the big day and encourages participants to pre-register online at www.kidney.ca/bcwalk for the 2.5 K walk or the 5 K fun run. Registration on the day of the event starts at 9 a.m. “The whole purpose of the walk is to raise money for research into kidney disease and to promote awareness of the kidney donor program,” said Mills. “A big mandate is to promote awareness of the kidney donor program upon death — thus the slogan, recycle for life.” Vernon’s own Paul Cousins will be master of ceremonies. A pre-walk dance performance will be led by Argyll School of Celtic Arts owner Janet Hackman and a group of dancers from her studio. Janet will also lead some interactive dancing following the walk/ run. The walk will be preceded with stretches by yoga instructor Carla Chernencoff with the Argyll School. Refreshments, entertainment and surprises for the whole family will follow the walk. “Bring lawn chairs and/or umbrellas — rain or shine, the events will go,” said Mills. Entry fees to the event are a donation to the Kidney Foundation of Canada; pledges of $50 or more will receive a commemorative T-shirt. Mills would like to thank all the sponsors of the event, but said some help is still needed. “I still need volunteers for a variety of duties, just prior to and on the day of the event for errands, set-up, tear-down, and clean-up,” she said. “As well, I am looking for sponsors to purchase kites, which Teeter Totter Toys has been kind enough to co-sponsor. “Kites are an excellent sym-

And there is still a need for tents if anyone can contribute. Grace MacDougall will attend the walk to honour her late husband.

Community impresses the judges Editor’s note: This week, the Communities in Bloom Committee fills in for Fred Lyall. fter much hard work and anticipation, the Communities in Bloom (CiB) Committee welcomed our CiB judges to Vernon July 19. The committee kept the judges busy during their day-and-a-half stay in Vernon, as there are so many things that make our community a wonderful place to live. CiB is much more than flowers and landscaping. This program is about celebrating our community’s efforts in the areas of environmental awareness, heritage conservation and beautification. The friendly competition encourages people to get involved, and makes
the process more fun. Don and Lisa, our judges, are passionate about CiB, and their enthusiasm showed through in their many questions. Shortly after their arrival and check-in at the Best Western Vernon Lodge, Don and Lisa were whisked away to see the winners of the first Greater Vernon Garden and Landscape Contest, sponsored by the City of Vernon, Art Knapp Plantland and Swan Lake Nurseryland. The committee treated the judges to a cruise of Okanagan Lake, and a picnic dinner at Ellison Park.
The judges’ second day in Vernon was jam-packed with activities. First up was breakfast with Jade Freeman, winner of the Fred Lyall 2010 Youth Sustainability Award presented by the City of Vernon and representatives from the Landed Learning Project, an intergenerational gardening project held at the Xerendipity gardens in Polson Park. Tour stops included a meeting with the mayor in Vernon’s new Spirit Square, the Community Music School, Vernon’s Water Reclamation Centre and the cemetery. The judges thought the cemetery had been decorated especially for their

visit, and were impressed to hear that our cemetery is always so beautiful. The Vernon Arts Centre hosted a special multi-media exhibition in honour of CiB. The judges enjoyed tea and goodies while they looked at floraland nature-themed photography, painting, glass-work, pottery and fabric arts. After a tour of the Biosolids Facility, the judges were pleased to explore the new community garden at West Vernon school. The real highlights were to be found between official tour stops. Committee members took pride in pointing out the new tree planting at Beairsto school, Case Furniture’s heritage building renovation, new residential and commercial xeri-
Going hungry in the face of abundance Morning Star Staff
Local fields, gardens and orchards are full of vegetables and fruit but there are still people in the community going hungry. While the Pregnancy Outreach Program sees many expectant mothers who need help with nutritious food, they are not the only ones who find it difficult to get enough food to eat. “It is important to have healthy food when pregnant to have a healthy baby but everyone needs healthy food,” said Caroline Huisken, coordinator of the Pregnancy Outreach Program, funded by the Public Health Agency of Canada and run through the First Nations Friendship Centre for everyone in the community who wants to take part. “The stress we have here is that we are funded for 90 families to help them through pregnancy until the baby is six months old. Now we are serving more than double that many families and when we refer them to other agencies, it is the same thing, they have more demands as well.” The program provides drop-in full meals twice a week, as well as free vitamins and certificates to buy groceries. The
program used to help with food hampers over the winter but now cannot supply enough for everyone. There is also a Community Kitchen for expectant mothers to help them with budgeting and nutrition. Last year, the program provided coupons to be used at the Vernon Farmers Market but there was no funding to continue this year. “We hope that all the agencies and the public
who has extra produce can work together to share it,” said Huisken. “Clients notice the difference in how they feel when they have good food. I find people in the program who have the skills and knowledge to prepare nutritious food but can’t afford to buy it. The number of people and how often they come in for help is increasing. Some people come in every day looking for something to eat.
“And it’s not only food people are struggling with. They need help with formula for babies, and diapers, and transportation is always an issue. It’s harder to get out in the heat and families can get isolated. Right now, we are just kind of managing day to day.” Huisken encourages anyone who can donate produce or help with other donations to call her at 250-542-7578.
scape gardens, sites where community cleanup projects happen, the beautiful building of the Under One Roof project, and the many strides made by the Partners in Action Committee. As a fitting end to their last day in Vernon, judges enjoyed a guided tour of O’Keefe Ranch, followed by dinner and fantastic entertainment by Rob Dinwoodie. Congratulations to the winners of the Garden and Landscape Contest, who received their awards that evening. Our judges were very generous with their praise of Vernon. They were impressed with our obvious community spirit and the many and varied initiatives of local government, business, and residents.
Vernon’s CiB committee extends a heartfelt thanks and congratulations to everyone in
this community who contributes to making Vernon such a great place to live.

Dealing with all that zucchini
ere I sit on a strange computer after dropping mine off for repair. It’s Murphy’s Law after all, that if a computer is going to crash, it will do so when I’m on deadline. Same goes in the cooking world: I’ve had a stove burn out in the middle of Christmas cooking; I’ve cooked fruit up for jam, only to discover I had the wrong pectin for the recipe; mixed up numerous batches of cookies, then discovered that the chocolate chips or raisins had been eaten by young munchkins, and on it goes. ‘Tis the season for an abundance of zucchini and many are asking what to do with them besides the stirfry dishes, etc. If your garden is producing more than you can use

MILDRED FRANCES KIPP (nee WiddiÂżeld)
Nov 09 1950 - Aug 12 2010
April 18, 1927 - August 11, 2010
It is with great sadness we regret to announce that after a year long courageous battle with cancer ,Greg, also known as ABE, passed away in the Queen Charlotte Hospital on 12 Aug 2010, Greg was born in Kelowna on 09 Nov 1950 He leaves to mourn his Wife, Debbie, his Mother, Gladys Mason, Father, Richard Abraham, Son, Abe Brown, Daughter, Brandie Hill [Edward], 6 Grandchildren, Brothers Keith and Brian [Liliana], and extended family members. Greg lived most of his adult life on Haida Gwaii. He had a passion for the Haida Culture, learning the way of life, and making many friends among the artists. His Haida Family including Robert and Jenny Cross were an important part of his adopted life. The Family wish to extend their deep appreciation to the Doctors, Nurses and staff at the Queen Charlotte Hospital during the past year.
Though his smile is gone forever And his hand we cannot touch We still have so many memories Of the one we love so much His memory is a keepsake With which weâ€™ll never part God has him in his keeping We have him in our hearts Miss me but let me go When I come to the end of the road And the sun has set me free I want no cries from a gloom ďŹ lled room Why cry for a soul set free Miss me a little, but not for long Service will be held at a later date in Skidegate.
The family regrets to announce the sudden passing of Mildred on Wednesday August 11, 2010. Mildred is survived by her loving husband George of 64 years; three daughters Marlene, Maxine (Bob), Valerie (Bert); one son Larry (Michelle); six grandsons Daryl (MaryAnn), Doug (Patty), Dale (Heather), Damon, Braden, and Joel; seven great-grandchildren Garret, Brianna, Ashton, Trinity, Ellysa, Gregory, Jesse; two brothers Earl (Stella), Frank (Elsie); and many other loving family members. Mildred was born in Glenavon SK, one of eleven children. She and George raised their family here in the Valley, where she enjoyed varied work interests until Âżnally becoming known as the â€œmail ladyâ€? until retiring. During their retirement Mildred & George spent many enjoyable hours at their cabin at Downie Creek â€œÂżshing Âżshing Âżshingâ€? and spending time with many great friends. Mildred was the familyâ€™s strong foundation and control, and make a difference - â€œshe didâ€?. In Georgeâ€™s loving eyes she was â€œTHE BOSSâ€?. No service as requested by Mildred. A private family memorial to follow.
When I come to the end of the road, and the sun has set for me. I want no rites in a gloom ďŹ lled room. Why cry for a soul set free? For this is a journey we all must take, and each must go alone. Itâ€™s all a part of the Masterâ€™s plan, a step on the road to home. Arrangements entrusted to PERSONAL ALTERNATIVE FUNERAL SERVICES Armstrong 250-546-7237 & Vernon 250-558-0866
