Deadly highway focus of upgrades RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR
Crews proceed with safety improvements to Bailey Road and Highway 97 Thursday. The first phase of upgrades should be completed by mid-September.
Improvements are being made to a deadly stretch of North Okanagan highway. The Ministry of Transportation is moving ahead with some immediate changes to Highway 97 and Bailey Road, south of Vernon, and more extensive work is expected in the spring. “I’m very pleased a citizen can write the minister and be well received,” said Bruce Roberts, a Predator Ridge resident who has been lobbying for safety upgrades. “I’m very pleased they responded and something is happening.” A ministry review indicates that 76 collisions occurred at the intersection between 2000 and 2009. This year, Kelowna resident Kim Todd died June 7 when she was struck by a southbound minivan as she tried to pull out on to the highway from Bailey Road. The work that should be completed by midSeptember includes: ■ An overhead flashing light to highlight the presence of the intersection. ■ Speed reader boards on Highway 97, north and south of the intersection, which will display vehicle speeds to make motorists aware if they are exceeding the speed limit. ■ Larger and more

Highway 97 at Bailey Road has been the site of numerous accidents, including fatalities. reflective warning and regulatory signs. ■ Stop Ahead warning signs and tactile warning strips on Bailey Road in advance of the intersection. Designs are also being drafted for other improvements that should be initiated in the spring. They include: ■ Construction of a new right-turn acceleration lane for traffic turning south from Bailey Road. ■ Extension of the right-turn lane for traffic turning on to Bailey Road to include additional deceleration length. ■ Extension of the northbound left-turn lane on Highway 97 to include additional deceleration length. The ministry con-
ducted an engineering safety review of the intersection in June. “The engineering safety work included a review and analysis of crash data at the intersection, a field survey of the intersection and approaches and analysis of the intersection, geometry, traffic speeds and traffic volumes,” said Murray Tekano, the ministry’s district manager, in a letter to Roberts. While Roberts welcomes the ministry’s actions to date, he believes they should only be considered a beginning and not the end of a process. “I hope they have their eye on a proper overpass there. I hope they are doing design work for an overpass,” he said.

News Crews keep fire from spreading BRENT MUTIS Morning Star Staff
A potentially disastrous situation was averted Tuesday as a fire near some dry brush and homes was quickly doused by firefighters. Crews from the Okanagan Landing and Vernon fire departments reported to the call which came in about 4:15 p.m. The fire was located behind the homes on Tronson Road facing Okanagan Lake. â€œWe hit it fairly quickly and got it knocked down right away,â€? said Okanagan Landing fire chief Ed Forslund. â€œWe were fortunate there were no strong winds because it had the potential to go up the hillside.â€? Because of the degree of slope of the nearby hillside and the type of growth there, Forslund says it would have been difficult to contain had flames travelled any farther. â€œWith the amount of fuel load on the hillside and the steep slope, it would have spread quickly if there had been winds.â€? The origin of the blaze appears to be a construction trailer and Forslund says it looks like it was human-caused though an investigation is ongoing. A small area of dry brush, about 50 metres by 50 metres, also burned but with 16 members from Okanagan Landing and another six from Vernon, the situation was quickly controlled. â€œEverything went really smooth,â€? said Forslund. â€œThere was a good complement of people there.â€? Forslund was also pleased the B.C. Forest Service responded to the scene but ultimately their presence was not required.

When the third officer is back from leave, all three officers designated to Falkland will continue to start their shifts there, as will two other rural officers. However, their duties could take them to other parts of the North Okanagan. Some residents want three officers permanently stationed in Falkland, but Burgess points to scheduling challenges including holidays, illness and training. The other issue is there is no guarantee the designated officers will live in Falkland and be able to respond at any time. â€œThey see it as losing an officer and not expanded coverage,â€? he said of publicâ€™s reaction the strategy. â€œWe have put it to them that if they can

Coldstream incidents draw RCMP scrutiny RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Parties and traffic are on the radar for police making the rounds in Coldstream. Council raised several issues of concern while meeting with senior RCMP officials Monday. “We’re still getting comments about public drinking and incidents causing disturbances at Kal Beach,” said Coun. Richard Enns. According to Supt. Reg Burgess, patrols are regularly scheduled during busy times of the year along Kalamalka Lake, including foot patrols. “We do focus on Kal Lake because it’s a hot spot, a popular spot and there are issues of traffic there,” he said. There have also been public complaints about speeding vehicles
“We’re trying to hit the area hard.” — Jim McNamara throughout the community, but primarily on Middleton Way. “We’re trying to hit the area hard,” said Insp. Jim McNamara referring to Middleton Mountain. In July, officers handed out 25 violation tickets and 15 warnings in Coldstream. Besides Middleton Way, Aberdeen and Kalamalka roads are also current areas of interest for the police. It was pointed out that the local RCMP detachment has an almost full complement of officers and
that led to some council members questioning whether that will lead to expanded resources for issues like speeding. “The more bodies we have, the more able we are to respond,” said Burgess. However, he added that many of the detachment’s officers are young and starting families and that means they are eligible for maternity/ paternity leave and that ultimately impacts total staffing levels. “A large number of our members are gone for six months to a year (because of leave).”
New website unveiled RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Residents of the North Okanagan and Shuswap will be able to report criminal activity with just the click of a mouse. North OkanaganShuswap Crime Stoppers has launched a new website at www. n o k s c r i m e s to p p e r s . com. “You can do a tip right from there and the tip is secure,” said spokesman Gord Molendyk, adding that he has no way of tracing the origins of the tip. “I have no way of connecting it back to you. It’s totally anonymous.” The website is just another way for law enforcement to keep in contact with the public. “A good portion of tips come from the Shuswap so we hope this will move us forward,” said Molendyk. Besides reporting information about crimes, the website will provide details about individuals wanted by the police and the Crime Stoppers program.
“It’s totally anonymous.” — Gord Molendyk
“We are going to start promoting that website,” said Molendyk. “Our website also has links to Facebook
and Twitter. When there are missing people or unsolved crimes, people can use this social media.”

Pickup hits logging truck RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Police are trying to determine why a vehicle smashed into a logging truck south of Vernon Thursday. At around 6:30 a.m., a logging truck was pulled over next to the northbound lane of Highway 97 — 1.5 kilometres south of Bailey Road — because of a flat tire. As it sat there, a Ford pickup struck it in the back end.
The 22-year-old Vernon man driving the pickup was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with minor injuries. “Police are still investigating,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesman. Molendyk would not speculate on why the incident occurred, but says the logging truck driver had followed all proper procedures when parking. “He pulled over off the highway and was well marked. He had cones out,” said Molendyk.
Grow-ops discovered in Lumby Morning Star Staff
Police have shut down two marijuana grow operations near Lumby. Last week, officers, with the assistance of a helicopter, found a small grow operation with 35 plants in the hills directly west of Lumby. “The second was much larger and more sophisticated,” said Cpl. Henry Proce. It was near the south end of Mabel Lake, off the Cascade Forest Service Road. “It appeared that the drug traffick-
ers had been growing pot on Crown land there for years,” said Proce. “The area was well hidden from the road and very swampy.” A total of 925 mature plants were destroyed at the scene. “No arrests have been made,” said Proce. “At this late time in the growing season, the priority was to destroy the plants before they could be harvested, sold and hundreds of thousands of dollars put into the pockets of criminals.”

“This is not out of the blue,” said Britton, noting that the proposal had actually been approved two years earlier by the previous council. “I’ve been to the lot a few times, and he (Huxely Homes) has built some really good buildings here in town.” “I understand the concern, especially about density,” said Councillor Shirley Fowler. “The developer has done his best to meet those concerns.” Huxely Homes will try to mitigate the privacy issue with things like fencing and shrubbery says Fowler, but council agreed that privacy will still be affected.

In search of spruce
t is a quest that began a year-and-a-half ago when Terryn and I first visited our friends Anne-Marie and Jean-Sébastien in Montreal. We had already checked off quite a few of the Quebecois/Eastern Canadian culinary favourites from our list of must-have items – poutine (with bacon, it was incredible), smoked meat sandwiches and maple syrup in a can. And then as we were touring through the boreal forest exhibit at the Biodome (right next to Olympic Stadium), J.S., probably triggered by the scent of conifer trees, says: “Do you guys know about spruce beer?” Graeme Corbett I thought he was kidding at first, but he insisted it was real. Anne-Marie groans, shaking her head: “It tastes like you’re drinking a Christmas tree.” Despite mental images of chugging back Pine-Sol, I’m intrigued. The quest for this magical, thirst-quenching liquid sap is on. “Allons-y!” J.S. warns us we aren’t likely find it on the shelf right next to the Coca-Cola, but he is fairly certain we can find it with relative ease. First stop – the local supermarket. No dice. Next, we try a health food store that sells a good range of organic/specialty beverages, but apparently not spruce beer. After visiting several other grocery stores and markets, we give up. Luck is not on our side. Fast forward 18 months and Terryn and I are back on holiday out east, spending several days with her sister in Ottawa, three days at a yoga retreat in the Laurentian Mountains, and of course spending an afternoon with our favourite Quebecer friends, who are expecting their first child any day now. J.S. is as determined as ever to find spruce beer. I’m a little hesitant given our abject failure last time around, but his optimism soon rubs off on me and we agree to rekindle the search party.

Grinning, J.S. whips out his laptop and, using the miracle that is the Internet, zeroes in on the spruce beer maker’s website and finds a list of local outlets that carry it. Why didn’t we think of this before? It’s brilliant. Foolproof you might say. “There are three places within 10 minutes of here. Let’s go,” he smiles. We hop in Terryn’s sister’s new Mini Cooper, (which she graciously lent us for our trek around the Quebec countryside), leaving the girls to catch up on old times. The first place on the list is a dilapidated corner store in a dodgy neighbourhood. As long as they have what we’ve been searching for, I don’t really care. They don’t have any. Neither does the next place. I’m ready to pack it in by this point. I’ve been up since 6 a.m., and we still have to drive back to Ottawa to catch our flight home the next day. J.S. says: “Just one last store. If we don’t find it, we quit.” We zip over to an IGA, quickly scan the aisles for the pop section and let out a collective sigh of despair - there is no spruce beer. Anywhere. Heads hung low, we shuffle towards the exit, passing a lone beverage cooler against the wall. “That’s it!” J.S. beams, pointing to a stopper-topped green bottle on the bottom shelf. And right next to it was a bonus item – maple beer, made by the same company. J.S. hadn’t even heard of that one. We each bought one of both varieties and bolted home, where Terryn and Anne-Marie razzed us for taking so long. J.S. busts out four glasses and, even with Anne-Marie’s earlier description, I am surprised to learn it does taste like a Christmas tree. Can’t say I would drink the stuff on a regular basis, but it is one more piece of Canadiana I am proud to say I’ve tried. Sadly, half my bottle of spruce beer leaked onto my clothes on the flight home, but at least my laundry smelled good. And I now know where I can buy more.
It’s heartening to see work being done to make the intersection of Highway 97 and Bailey Road, south of Vernon, a safer thoroughfare for all concerned. A ministry review discovered there have been 76 accidents at this infamous intersection in the past decade, the most notable of late in June when a young Kelowna woman lost her life. It’s sad that it appears to have taken this latest fatality to spark the review but maybe the changes going on right now will help avert any more tragedies at the intersection that is seeing more and more traffic as development in the area increases. Bruce Roberts, a Predator Ridge resident who made an impressive, behind-the-scenes presentation to the Ministry of Transportation in helping get these changes made, is pleased with what has transpired but hopes for more in the future, including an overpass. Whether the traffic count, and the financial cost, justifies or warrants such an outcome can be debated in the future. However, there’s no doubt that flashing lights, better signage and the eventual construction of turn lanes will go a long way in making the intersection safer and create less potential for accidents, fatal and otherwise. Once that is done we recommend the ministry look at the Birnie Road access to the disposal station (dump) off Highway 97 as an intersection in dire need of safety improvements. But one project at a time. And while the HST protest gets all the ink and the hoopla, it should be noted how a quiet but effective and well-researched lobbying campaign by one person can get the government moving in the right direction.

Pulse of the park
recent correspondent noted that leaving the road open in Polson Park makes the park more accessible for many seniors and those with disabilities, and the members of the Vernon Lawn Bowling Club, myself included, totally agree with this position. If the road is closed, you might as well tear out most of the picnic tables on the south side along the creek as they are not likely to be used anymore. The effect of closing the road will thus be to turn people away from the park rather than to attract them. The number of potential users of the proposed fitness area (which, incidentally, will cost thousands of dollars and use up green space), will be far outweighed by the number of picnickers and outof-town visitors turned away. With respect to cost, why must thousands of taxpayers' dollars be spent to "reconfigure" parking areas, to relocate the rose garden, and to create an artificial "natural" wetland (do I smell an oxymoron here) in an urban park? We all know that constant change is a constant in life, but these changes seem to be for the sake of change. A RESPONSE The letter to the paper and all of the North Okanagan for that matter, on “Bring back the Dragon Boats” was so poorly researched, I am finding myself having to correct it. As an observer, much less a member of the Dragon Riders, the writer should of got her facts straight. As a resident of the area near Kal Beach I was given the opportunity to voice my opinion on whether a permit should be given for the 2010 Dragon Boat festival. This is all public record and you can do some research on the Kalavista Committee to which I am a member. Although residents could have complained about the music not closing at the appointed time or the amount of garbage left, no one did. The recommendations that were made by residents, were that the cost of the event be paid fully by the organizers, and be contracted for a one year basis not a five, as requested. These were only recommendations. Due to a lack of research, you may not be aware that the event cost Coldstream taxpayers about $15,000 (estimate, at the time the exact numbers were not available but the committee had to give its opinion). Why did it cost that much was our question? Policing, garbage pick up, traffic safety as well as set up and other costs were the answers. All committee members were in favour of the event, we all agreed
The Vernon Lawn Bowling Club has been a constant user of the park for many years (we celebrated our 90th anniversary in 1998). We provide an easily accessible and affordable physical and social activity for many seniors in the pleasant park surroundings for which we are truly thankful and which we treasure and appreciate. In return, we use the mostly volunteer labour to maintain the buildings and grounds of
that two days out of the year of extra traffic is okay because it is a good event, however, I do not want my tax dollars going to fund the event. The organizers are running a business. If I went to the city and said I have a business however I want you to subsidize my event, what would you expect them to do? Here is the next kicker you may not be aware of; the event is not on Coldstream land. That’s right Coldstream was expected to pay for an event which is actually on Vernon City land. Vernon City has refused to put Kal Beach and the above parking lot into the parks and continues to hold Kal Beach as its own property. Coldstream does however, own all the land surrounding it, which means the onus for policing, cleanup, etc., is funded by Coldstream residents. Also, if you had done your research, you would know the tax dollars for tourism for meals, accommodations, etc. goes mainly to Vernon not Coldstream. What most likely happened is that Coldstream and Vernon decided that with all the budget cuts, funding an event for people to paddle around the lake is not the best method of spending important tax dollars, so when the event organizers were informed that they would need to supply their own traffic, policing and garbage services they raised the event prices to the point that very few boats registered.
By the way, I have attended both events and look forward to the organizer putting a sound business plan together to promote the activity on Kal Lake. Most of the people on the north end of Kal Lake are long-term residents, meaning they have lived here 30-plus years, some are family homes passed from generation to generation. And you are asking them to go away for a weekend, so you can do what you want? These are people that moved here when there were only cottages and the area was quiet. You are invading their space, while they are sharing theirs. Most love to watch the dragon boat races and respect your sport, it's too bad the residents don't get the respect back from some members of the public. Rob MacKay GOOD AND BAD Because I am physically challenged from arthritis (nothing to do with age!), I shop at a local store because of the availability of electric scooters there...what a boon they are for people like me that can't walk the big stores. I have lived in this city for many, many years and I have recently come to realize what friendly and gracious citizens we have here. Sometimes some items are out of reach while being seated on the scooter but there is usually someone who will ask if they can get something for me. This one morning, one
the club to keep them as neat and attractive as possible. We entertain many guests from other parts of the province for open houses and numerous tournaments such as Funtastic. For five months of the year we are present at the club and from our observations we have a greater sense of the pulse of the park and what goes on there than a consultant from a faroff office. We strongly believe that it makes sense to keep the road open. It should be noted, that as concerned stakeholders, club members constituted more than half the audience at the recent presentation of redevelopment options held at the Rec Centre. Yes, unfortunately we have to do away with the fountain, which would mean some relocation of the parking area by the bowling green, but this is the only reconfiguration required. Also, there is a need for some type of pavilion facing the oval, which should be used for school sports and other events such as Walk for the Cure, etc., and large, open-air ceremonies. In conclusion, I would say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it." Don Hull
kind man got me several items from the dairy freezer. I was tempted to hand him my shopping list. At the check out, there is usually someone that will offer to remove my purchases from the scooter to the counter and I have even been offered to have them taken out to my car. I once asked one of them if he could come home with me and take my groceries into the house but for some reason he didn't take me up on it. So, since riding a scooter, grocery shopping has become fun and enjoyable and I come home with warm feelings of people being so friendly and helpful. I wish I could say the same about how I feel when I see my sales slip and how much HST I had to pay. And speaking of HST, those warm feelings quickly disappeared when I recently read that Mr. Campbell and his cohort, Colin Hanson, are on a province-wide campaign to sell the HST to us. How frustrating. Why try to do damage control when we have already shown how we feel by the 700,000 signatures on the NO HST petition? So now they are using some of our tax dollars for a nice little summer vacation to try and mend fences. Why would they not have done this HST promotion trip before the HST was initiated? This is very similar to the proverbial putting the cart before the horse. And while the cart

District protects rail line RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Rail lines won’t be easily abandoned in Coldstream. Council has instructed staff to establish the train track through the district as a transportation corridor in the official community plan. “When a line is abandoned, the zoning changes to the adjacent zoning. If the adjacent land is residential, it could become residential,” said Coun. Doug Dirk. Doug Dirk “In order to protect the rail line, we need to protect it as a transportation corridor in the OCP. That makes the value of the land significantly less and less attractive for the railway to sell.” The issue arose after Canadian Pacific launched a process to abandon the line from Spallumcheen to Sicamous. Communities are now trying to keep the track in place because of the impact on local business. There’s no talk about Canadian National shutting down the Coldstream track, but Dirk insists
the community needs to be proactive in case the situation changes. “If the municipality takes action, it sends a message to the railway that we want the corridor protected and if they can’t run the rail line, then we want it for our own use,” he said. Dirk says the options could range from maintaining the line for rail service to a hiking trail or even a road. Staff hasn’t waisted any time in launching the changes to the official community plan. “We’ve asked our consultants who keep our maps up-to-date to draft in the rail lines,” said Craig Broderick, director of development services. A draft bylaw amending the OCP is expected to go before council by the end of September and then consultation with other agencies and the public will be required. It’s not known when amendment will receive final approval, but Broderick supports the direction council is taking in preserving the rail line. “Every property has to have a use so it’s good to have a reflection of what the uses are,” he said.

Motorists are being told to obey construction zones or face the consequences. Vernon RCMP have stepped up enforcement on 28th Avenue, between 34th and 35th streets, because some drivers have been ignoring road work being done. “The Do Not Enter large red signs have been in place for more than nine months,” said Sgt. Dan Wendland. “This is an accident waiting to happen, and if if does and your driving in the wrong direction, you will be at fault.” Violation tickets will be handed out to motorists not obeying construction signs. “The City of Vernon is very much aware as they have received complaints from the construction crews and this could turn into a WorkSafeBC incident should someone get hurt,” said Wendland. “Let’s follow the rules of the road for everyone’s safety.”

B.C. Liquor Stores customers can help support Red Cross relief efforts in Pakistan by making donations at any of the 197 government liquor stores in the province. Until Sept. 29, customers are able to make donations of $2 or $5 - or multiples thereof - at all B.C. Liquor Stores checkouts. All donations will go to the Canadian Red Cross’ Pakistani relief efforts. In early August, monsoon rains caused extensive flash flooding throughout Pakistan, killing more than 1,500 people and causing widespread damage. More than three million people have been affected, and the rains are expected to worsen this week. The Canadian Red Cross is mobilizing to support relief efforts in Pakistan - providing medical support, clean water, food and shelter. B.C. Liquor Stores are unable to issue tax receipts for donations. Customers who require tax receipts should donate directly to the Canadian Red Cross.

Council members have discussed the use of staff time for organizing the event, and decided that someone in the community should look after marketing and logistical issues like parking and tables. However, council will consider the cre-
acre Highway 6 property to the Agricultural Land Commission for consideration. “I would never support cutting a 10-acreplus parcel in half,” said Coun. Bill Firman. The land — between Highway 6 and Rendell Drive — is used for hay production and is surrounded by hay fields and rural residences. The applicant wanted to subdivide the property into two parcels. The director of development services recommended sending the application to the ALC, but the chief administrative officer was opposed, saying subdivision would not be consistent with the municipality’s agricultural plan.

With CP Rail having discontinued service along its rail line from Armstrong to Sicamous, the district is working closely with the provincial and federal governments, CP, as well as the Columbia-Shuswap and North Okanagan regional districts to acquire the Grindrod to Sicamous portion of the line for the creation of a walking/hiking/biking trail. At the same time, district council supports maintaining just the Armstrong to Grindrod portion for rail use. â€œSicamous would like to see this as a corridor for recreation use and walking and cycling, whereas, from Grindrod to Armstrong, from that point down thereâ€™s a different perspective,â€?
said MacLeod. â€œGroups to the south are hoping to keep the whole rail line as an operational rail line, and we absolutely do not support that. We support the idea from

Pat McGillis (right) rips a shot past netminder Tyler Steel, a Vernon product, during a practice session on opening day of the Vernon Vipers’ main camp Wednesday morning at Wesbild Centre. The Snakes are in exhibition action tonight in Chase against the Trail Smoke Eaters.
Snakes welcome new faces GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
It was like the first day at a new school Wednesday at Wesbild Centre. The opening day of the Vernon Vipers’ training camp was as much about putting faces to names as it was about assembling a crew capable of defending the Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey title. The Snakes have just seven returning players on a 23-man roster, leaving plenty of opportunity for players to earn quality minutes when the 2010-11 B.C. Hockey League season opens Friday, Sept. 10. Coming back on defence are Stevie Weinstein, a speedy puck mover, and Adam Thompson, who should get more opportunity to use his booming point shot this season. Both are 1990-born players. Captain Dave Robinson (‘90), Bryce Kakoske (‘90), Pat McGillis (‘91) and Dylan Walchuk (‘92) round out the forward corps, while netminder Blake Voth (‘91) will look to build on the impressive 21-2 record he compiled in his rookie season. After that, the Vipers have more vacancies than a Louisiana hotel during hurricane season. With so many prime roles available,
Vipers’ assistant coach Jason Williamson believes it will fuel competition amongst the 40 players attending camp. “It’s good in some sense because they’re coming in and they’re eager and wanting to earn jobs here,” he said. “We’ve got to fill a lot of holes and there are some key opportunities for guys to step in and play huge minutes.” After just two days of practices and Blue vs White scrimmages, the Vipers jump right into exhibition action with games tonight and Saturday night against the Trail Smoke Eaters in Chase. The Vipers have one home exhibition tilt against the Salmon Arm SilverBacks on Friday, Sept. 3 at Wesbild. They visit the Gorillas the next night at Sunwave Centre. Once a team is selected, the Snakes will need to gel with their new teammates in a hurry as they open the season by hosting Salmon Arm on Sept. 10. With so many new faces, Robinson said he and the other veterans will need to give a crash course in Viper hockey tradition. “As leaders we have to be a bit more assertive. We’ve got a lot of new guys coming in so we’ve got to show them the ropes,” he said.
“As a team, it might take a couple weeks or so to gel, but Ferns (head coach Mark Ferner) and Willy (Williamson) are both great coaches so I’m sure they’ll get us going before the season starts.” Aaron Hadley, a 17-year-old Castlegar product who committed to the Vipers during last season’s playoff run, was thrilled to finally be at camp. “I’m excited. The team looks good, I’m coming to a great organization and I can’t wait to get the season underway,” said Hadley, a point-a-game player who amassed 94 penalty minutes with the KIJHL Beaver Valley Nitehawks as a 16-year-old. “There are a lot of good guys leaving – the Joneses and Pimmer (Braden Pimm) – so everyone’s going to have a new role this year. It’s going to be good.” Kakoske is coming into camp 20 pounds lighter than last season. Wanting to lead by example, the Vernon product trimmed the weight in the offseason by running lots and following a rigorous workout routine. “We might be a bit smaller this year, but the Jonesies (Connor and Kellen Jones) did OK in this league, so we’ll be OK. There’s kids from everywhere here and there looks to be a lot of talent.”
Vernon’s Sue Abbott isn’t your typical Ironman rookie. At 65 years of age, she could just as easily be collecting a pension instead of a race package. But after volunteering for the last 20 years at Ironman Canada in Penticton, of being on the outside looking in, supporting those super-fit athletes as they grind their way through the sun-baked course (3.86-kilometre swim, 180-km bike, 42.2km run), she figured why not her? “I’ve been looking at it for years,” said the Australian-born Abbott, who first began competing in shorter distance triathlons in 1984. “I’m not fast, but it’s a good group of people to be around and it’s good to challenge yourself. If you really want to do something in your life, you’ll figure out a way to do it.” Abbott, a semi-retired registered nurse who moved to Canada from Melbourne 30 years ago, has been training for the last year, dragging herself out of bed at 5 a.m. to run, bike and/or swim with a dedicated group of training partners. “One thing I’ve realized is you can’t do it on your own. You need the support of a lot of people,” said Abbott. “They’re all slightly nuts, but that’s what makes them so fun to be around. And if you get up early, it doesn’t interfere with the rest of your day.” Abbott is one of 20 Vernon-area athletes competing in Subaru Ironman Canada on Sunday.
Vernon’s Sue Abbott, 65, will compete in her first-ever Ironman Triathlon Sunday in Penticton.

NET advance to Gibson Cup final It will be No. 1 versus No. 2 as the Revelstoke Stallions tangle with North Enderby Timber for the Gibson Cup Championship Sunday night at Marshall Field. NET cut down Salmon Armâ€™s Courvas 5-4 in the North Okanagan Menâ€™s Soccer League semifinal Wednesday night to advance. Down a goal early, Brent Poulsen opened the NET offence after Brodie Couch banked a pass off off Sam Watson, which he buried in the bottom left corner. Courvas replied two minutes later, but Poulsen buryied his second to keep the timber men on pace. Kyle Halvorson made a phenomenal individual effort around several Courvasâ€™ defenders to set up the goal. With the Timber trailing 4-2, Corey Wallis blasted a shot to the top right corner after Devin Janke took control on the wing and danced up the sideline. Courvas generated several quality chances but were steadily denied by keeper Danny Stein, including a free kick from 25 yards out that squeezed through the defensive wall. Salmon Arm held a 4-3 lead until the final 15 minutes when the Timber offence
stepped up yet again. Johnny Orton controlled a perfectly placed Graham Ross chip pass and hammered a shot top right. Kyle Halvorson narrowly missed the go-ahead goal by cracking a shot that just missed the top corner. The winner came from yet another flawless pass from Ross to the foot of Wallis who controlled the ball, exposed the defence and buried a cross-net cannon that left the keeper with no chance. Ross McDonald played a stellar game on the NET backline. Man of the Match went to Halvorson, with honorable mentions to Chris Pisesky and Chris Ovens. In the other Wednesday semi, the Stallions cruised to a 6-0 win over the under-manned surveyors. â€œThey definitely were the better team, but shouldnâ€™t have beat us by that much,â€? said Monasheeâ€™s Jay Aarsen. â€œWe were missing some defenders so we moved some guys around and changed our formation, which was a bad idea. â€œWe are looking forward to playing for third place in Vernon on Sunday (against Courvas, 6 p.m. at Marshall) and are happy to have made it to the semifinals as our team was a totally new group of guys this year.â€?
Mick joins Dawgs GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
Sawyer Mickâ€™s troubled tenure with the Vernon Vipers is at an end. Vernon general manager/head coach Mark Ferner granted Mickâ€™s request for a release from the club. Mick, who turns 19 next month, found himself a healthy scratch after the Vipers brought in forwards Dave Robinson and Sahir Gill at the trade deadline last season. Feeling the Vipers werenâ€™t fulfilling a promise regarding playing time, he opted to leave the team and, ineligible to play elsewhere, sat out the remainder of the season. Sawyer Mick The Vernon product has since decided to resume his junior career and, after considering his options, is currently training with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. â€œI was contemplating all summer whether to keep going or not. I realized I have put too much effort into the sport just to throw it away,â€? said Mick, a forward who amassed 9-13-22 in 45 games with the Vipers. â€œIâ€™m looking forward to getting away from the Vernon scene and just focusing on hockey. I like it here, itâ€™s a good group of guys.â€? Ferner said he would prefer to have traded Mickâ€™s rights to the Bulldogs to get either a player or future considerations in return, but eventually agreed to simply release him. â€œI could have used him as an asset. I would have moved Sawyer wherever he wanted to go. As it turns out, they get a free player,â€? said Ferner. A late cut by the Vipers before the 2008-09 season, Mick started that year with the junior B Chase Chiefs before joining WHL Portland Winterhawks. Playing with his older brother Troyâ€™s former club, Mick collected 7-6-13 in 48 games before returning to his hometown team in 2009-10.

Sports REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN
Notice of Change of Water Service to Customers of Central Coldstream Due to the cooling weather trend there has been a slowdown in the demand to the water system. As a result, staff at the Regional District of North Okanagan are directing water system operators to alter system operation in central Coldstream. System changes will slow the Ă€ow of Duteau water into central Coldstream, and will allow Kalamalka Lake water to reach areas further east. SCOTT GRANT /SWIMMING CANADA
Vernonâ€™s Sarah Mehain competes in the butterly event at an international meet earlier this summer in Edmonton. Mehain reached the finals in each of her four events at the IPC Swimming LC World Championships last week in Eindhoven, The Netherlands.
Mehain shines in Holland Morning Star Staff
Vernon Kokanee Swim Clubâ€™s Sarah Mehain clocked countless personal bests as she competed at the IPC Swimming LC World Championships in Eindhoven, The Netherlands last week. After training with Team Canada at an eightday camp in Duisburg, Germany, Mehain arrived at Pieter van den Hoogenband Swimming Stadium where she opened with a personal best 37.12 seconds in the 50-metre freestyle. She bettered that in the final, grabbing eighth
overall with 36.57. Mehain then recorded two more personal bests, swimming the 100-m backstroke in 1:33.09, and the 200-m IM in 3:24.90, reaching the finals for both events. In the finals, she finished fifth in the 100-m back (1:31.60) and fourth in the 200-m IM (3:19.20). Mehain added a seventh-place finish in the 50-m butterfly (42.94). Canada finished the world championships with 21 medals â€“ seven gold, 11 silver and three bronze.
The above procedure is the reverse of the one that had to be implemented earlier this year when demands to the water system were increasing. Customers on Kalamalka Road located west of Aberdeen Road, and customers located west of McClounie Road, in the neighborhood of Tassie Drive, Cactus Drive, etc., may see changes to water quality on a daily basis for the next few weeks as demands change. This changeover will take place on or about August 25, 2010. During the shoulder season when water demands are variable the boundary between the various water sources will be constantly changing and customers will experience different water sources from time to time.

There was no room for error for Armstrongâ€™s Sylvie Fraser at the North American Junior Young Rider Dressage Championships recently in Lexington, Ky. Competing with a three-woman team against other squads that had four members, Fraserâ€™s Team B.C. overcame the odds to claim the Junior Rider team division title. They won the 10-team event with 201 points, three clear of the runners-up. â€œBecause we only had three riders we couldnâ€™t drop our low score, so that made it more exciting,â€? said Fraser, who competed with Esmee Ingham and Monica Houweling, both of Vancouver. Fraserâ€™s coach, Janine Little, cannot recall an event where a three-person team pulled off a win. â€œItâ€™s pretty cool. Everyone wants to see your medal.

Keyes collects winner
Coquitlam banks berth to finals Brodie MacDonald’s Coquitlam Adanacs have booked their ticket to the finals of the Minto Cup national junior A lacrosse championships. The A’s outgunned two-time defending champion Orangeville Northmen of Ontario 15-12 Tuesday night to finish atop the four-team roundrobin at 3-0. Orangeville rebounded by trimming the New Westminster Salmonbellies 6-4 in Wednesday-night semifinal action. The Adanacs and Northmen will tangle in a best-of-three championship series, which goes tonight, Saturday and, if necessary, Sunday night at Coquitlam Sports Centre.
Martial artists merit black belts A handful of martial arts practitioners collected prestigious black belt honours with Vernon’s Jungshin Tae Kwon-Do this summer. Gail Thomas and Mike Rozankoski each earned their third degree belts. Achieving second degree belts were Keith Cox and the Willison boys, Evan and Kenny. Randy Megjesi was promoted to first degree. Applicants had to meet a minimum criteria in demonstrating patterns, free sparring and board breaking. Third degree aspirants were additionally required to speak on the philosophy of Tae KwonDo. Testing was overseen by ninth degree black belt J.J. Lee. Jungshin, an affiliate of the International Tae Kwon-Do Federation (ITF), is celebrating its 40th anniversary. It is the oldest Tae Kwon-Do school in Western Canada.

Sovereign strokes title Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Sheila Sovereign combined a little luck with a lot of skill to get a stellar result in the final race of the Kalavida Summer Stand-Up Paddling (SUP) Series last week at Kalamalka Beach. Not only did Sovereign win both her races to claim the overall series title, she was the lucky winner of a C4 River SUP package when her name was drawn at the awards ceremony. The final twopart race included an iSUP dual elimination race, where Sovereign defeated Pam Young of Penticton in a close heat. She then won the short course to capture the overall title. Vernon’s Mike Hainault outlasted Cory Ferguson in the men’s iSUP final, but Ferguson earned the season’s title. Greg Taylor of Vernon won the men’s
short course in only his second race event. Kevin O’Brien, who owns Kalavida Surf Shop and organized the event, is impressed with the progression of paddle boarding in the Okanagan. “Who would have expected that the SUP scene would come this far in one year? The sport has been growing by leaps and bounds in the U.S. and around the world but was slow to finally reach Canada,” said O’Brien. Vernon’s Regena Seminutin and Coldstream’s Lisette Smid rounded out the top-three women. Hainault was runner-up behind Ferguson, with Wade (Woody) Anderson completing the topthree. More than 50 paddlers competed in the series, and the final race included racers from as far as Chilliwack and Grande Prairie, Alta.

CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR
Stompinâ€™ Tom Connors is singing and stomping his way through the western half of his 2010 Canadian tour as he thrills a lively Vernon audience Tuesday night at Wesbild Centre with one of his hits Bud The Spud.
Following a terse and lacklustre government press release about her resignation, former B.C. Arts Council chair Jane Danzo has issued a release of her own, describing her reasons in detail and including a copy of the resignation letter. Danzoâ€™s letter describes the lack of consultation around the creation of the Arts Legacy Fund, the governmentâ€™s rejection of the recommendation of its own standing committee on finance and government services that arts funding be restored to 2008/2009 levels, and the lack of a real arms-length relationship with the government as evidence that the B.C. Arts Council board does not â€œhave a voice independent of government.â€? â€œAll these and other factors led to my conviction that I had to step down in order to effectively speak up,â€? said Danzo. The B.C. Arts Council is intended to support arts and arts organization across the province and is governed by a 15-member council. Paul Crawford, curator at the Penticton Art Gallery, said the resignation didnâ€™t come as a complete surprise, that he had heard word that the councilâ€™s hands were tied. â€œIt is a frustrating situation and they havenâ€™t had the opportunity to be advocates to the extent they were supposed
to,â€? said Crawford. â€œItâ€™s really difficult, when you are hobbled like they are. It is a frustrating situation.â€? Danzoâ€™s decision to step down and speak out will help in terms of keeping the public aware of the cuts being made to arts funding, Crawford said, but adds the provincial Liberals might not pay much attention. â€œThey will just appoint another oneâ€Ś theyâ€™re going to stack the deck to suit their needs,â€? he said. The provincial government has already appointed an interim chair, Dr. Stanley Hamilton. Previously vice-chair of the B.C. Arts Council, Hamilton is professor emeritus at UBCâ€™s Sauder School of Business, specializing in real estate and pension portfolio investments. â€œIt would be nice if they could be out there advocating more on our behalf, but it seems the Liberal government has them on a short leash,â€? said Crawford. â€œThe only way that their public servants can speak out is if they remove themselves from their position. People are more than happy to talk on their way out the door.â€? Crawford hopes that news of Danzoâ€™s resignation and the reasons behind it will help keep up momentum for the protest against the massive cuts the liberal government has made to arts funding over the past two years.
4RY YOUR HAND AT PIPING OR DRUMMING Morning Star Staff
The Scottish highlands may be a long way from the Okanagan, but the strain of the bagpipes and the rat-a-tat of the drums can still be heard reverberating off the semi-arid hills of Vernon. Since June, the Kalamalka Pipe Band and the Arran Campbell Memorial Youth Pipe Band have been practising in Polson Park most Monday and Thursday nights to the enjoyment of many passersby, said Kalamalka Highlanders president Norm Crerar. The final Monday practice for this summer takes place next week, and everyone is invited to come down to the park and enjoy the pipes and drums of Vernonâ€™s two pipe bands. â€œWe know there are pipers and drummers in the area that are not associated with our bands, and we would especially like to invite them all to come
down with their instruments and join in,â€? said Crerar. â€œAs well, we know there are folks who have pipes and drums hidden away in closets and under beds that have not been played in some time. The invitation goes out to them also.â€? Locals young and old who are interested in trying pipes or drums will also be able to try out some of the Highlandersâ€™ instruments and will have their questions answered by pipe band members, added Crerar. The practice takes place in the west corner of Polson Park, opposite the bandshell, Monday from 7 to 8 p.m. The bands are also gearing up for the new season that goes from September to June. Registration for the coming season will take place Sept. 15 at 7 p.m. for the youth band at the House of Dwarfs daycare, 4701 29th St., and Sept. 16 at 7 p.m. at the Vernon Recreation Complex for the adult band.
Members of the Kalamalka Highlanders Pipe Band entertain residents at Vernon Restholm Monday evening. The band is inviting anyone interested in joining them to their practice at Polson Park this coming Monday.

Local proves she has pipes Tanya Lipscomb: Sing Your Song
recent transplant from Ontario and Alberta, singer/songwriter Tanya Lipscomb displays some deep vocal cuts and old-time sounds on Sing Your Song; a bluesy and blunt roots-vibed recording that puts her agesold sounding voice front and centre in your face. That’s not to dismiss subtlety, but this record sounds like one which was developed Dean Gordon-Smith as a showcase for Lipscomb’s rich and expressive voice –– a good idea! As indicated by several of the song titles, Sing Your Song is a jazzy recording, and it comes across most effectively in sparse moments. Wonderful World works beautifully in the lean and moody environment induced by Vernon producer/instrumentalist Henry Piovesan’s chilled piano cut; Lipscomb’s smoky phrasing matches that in a muted, smoky take. The recording offers some understated treasures: Lipscomb drops some ear-opening headsups in I Feel Alive. This track rocks with an atmosphere redolent of times and places long past. Inspiration cuts through, and one can wonder, “Where did that come from?” On some tracks (Don’t Call Me Baby), Lipscomb’s voice exceeds the song; her vocal character needing a worthier vehicle. Chilly material like the shuffly Move On has a relaxed pace that

In a low-light scene, Be the Difference has a Burt Bacharach/Dionne Warwick mood that hasn’t been heard and referenced in recent years, and are original sounds to explore. Lipscomb has a strong sense of the past, and a bold pull to the present.

Singer spreads a smile with tour Morning Star Staff
With this week’s release of Jodi King’s debut album, Little Smile, it’s only natural she would accompany it with a tour across western Canada. And that’s exactly what she is doing this month and next. A former backup singer for former Winnipegger, now Vernonite Jon Buller, the Winnipeg-born singersongwriter stops at Vernon’s Talkin’ Donkey Sept. 9. “I had such a great experience on the road with my first two EPs,” said King, who released The Acoustic EP in 2007 and Street Lights in 2009. “I love being on the road, connecting with fans who have supported me so much over the years. I’m so proud of this new project and can’t wait to share my songs with Canada.” Though Little Smile is King’s first full-length album, the musician is no newcomer to the world of music. Raised in a musical home where she sang in her local church choir, King began playing piano and writing her own compositions at the tender age of four. Over the past two years, she has toured tirelessly across Canada, building grass-roots awareness. The word-of-mouth buzz culminated in a 2009 Covenant Award for Inspirational Song of the Year for the track Breathing In / Breathing Out, featured on the Street Lights EP. Intense writing sessions for Little Smile were scheduled in Toronto, Winnipeg, Los Angeles and Nashville in between tour dates. The album showcases an uplifting, feel-good vibe reminiscent of a young Sheryl Crow, Jewel or Taylor Swift. Producers Colin Munroe (Lights, Sia Travis McCoy) and Adrian Bradford (Meiko, Mat Kearney) collaborated with seasoned engineers Joe Friday, August 27 6:00 TSN CHBC CTV BC

There’s no shortage of talented writers who are grappling with the social issues of the day, as the judges for the eighth annual George Ryga Award for Social Awareness in B.C. writing and publishing have learned. A group of readers have now whittled this year’s entries down to three books for this year’s award, and the decision wasn’t an easy one, said Okanagan College regional dean John Lent. Lent was joined by Armstrong sculptor Reg Kienast, Ryga Centre manager/playwright Ken Smedley and Vernon English teachers Jane Maskell and Liz Wallberg in assessing this year’s submissions. “Once again, we received a large field of well-written submissions this year,” said Lent. “It’s maybe a sign of these times that this award draws such strength from the writing community, so many strong responses.” Presented by the George Ryga Centre, BC BookWorld, CBC Radio One and Okanagan College, this year’s top three books are God Of Missed Connections by Elizabeth Bachinsky (Nightwood Editions), A Thousand Dreams by Larry Campbell, Neil Boyd and Lori Culbert (Greystone), and Where The Blood Mixes by Kevin Loring (Talonbooks). “If anyone ever thought writers weren’t engaging in the issues of our times, the books submitted for this award would convince them
pleted another volume of poetry and a volume of humorous columns from his career as a journalist. The victor will be announced at the Centre Stage Theatre in Summerland at a gala celebration Nov. 6, the last day of George Ryga Week in B.C.

Wildfires char more land than 2003 blazes TOM FLETCHER
Some of the fires currently burning are twice as large as the 2003 Okanagan Mountain Park fire, and parts of the Interior have been so obscured by smoke that the size and number of fires can only be estimated. The smoke from B.C. fires has spread eastward as far as Manitoba, another indication of the swath of destruction that has swept across mainly remote areas of the province this summer. Despite the pall of smoke that has hung
The 2010 wildfire season won’t be over for weeks, but it has already charred more than 300,000 hectares of B.C. forest, an area larger than Metro Vancouver. That’s more forest burned than any year since 1998, including the 2003 season that saw 33,000 people evacuated in the Okanagan and Thompson regions and 238 homes damaged or destroyed.
over much of the province this summer, human carelessness continues. Two new human-caused fires were identified on the weekend, bringing the total fires for this season to more than 1,500. While most of the major fires have been in the Cariboo and Northwest regions, a fire was discovered on the weekend in the Stave Lake region of the Fraser Valley. Several fires continued to burn on Vancouver Island, with crews in action near
Port Alice and Port Renfrew as well as Bella Coola and Powell River on the adjacent coast. Highway 20 between the Cariboo and Bella Coola was reopened to traffic on Monday. Fire hazard conditions remained high or extreme across much of the province, with northern B.C. experiencing severe drought and some of the lowest river levels ever recorded.

Sockeye ready to return to the Shuswap BARB BROUWER Black Press
Despite dire warnings from some environmentalists that lice from West Coast fish farms will decimate Fraser River sockeye runs, an estimated 16 million late-run salmon are gathered in Johnstone Strait or on their way home to the Shuswap. This is great news, not only for the salmon, but for the thousands of visitors who will flock to the Adams River from around the world to see this yearâ€™s dominant run, as well as the groups that host the celebration. These laterun sockeye normally gather in Johnstone or Juan de Fuca straits in late August and enter the Adams River, their arrival peaking in mid October. Early sockeye runs have been a happy surprise as well. â€œWeâ€™re finding more fish than expected pre-season in the Thompson-Shuswap, and the Seymour run is doing very well this year,â€? said Barry Rosenberger, Department of Fisheries and Oceans area director. As of Aug. 23, some 226,000 summer sockeye had already passed through the Scotch Creek fish fence operated by the Little Shuswap Lake Indian Bandâ€™s fishery department. And, says a delighted Rosenberger, between 30,000 to 70,000 are going through daily. These salmon are also arriving now to Seymour, Eagle and Anstey rivers and 30 other little area creeks, with peak spawn taking place in early to mid September. In total, the Fraser River run is estimated to be 25 million this year, the highest return since 1913. B.C. Wildlife Federation rep Phil Hallinan says local fishermen are also reporting large numbers of chinook in Mabel Lake and the Shuswap River. â€œIf fish farms are causing a problem, itâ€™s not severely impacting this yearâ€™s runs,â€? he says, noting many factors impact salmon survival, including habitat loss,
water temperatures, ocean survival, climate change and more. â€œThe difficulty is that a large number of
people have put their eggs in the basket of sea farms and thatâ€™s only one of the issues.â€? Hallinan points to
a recent Kelowna fire, where chemicals from a burned-out building were washed into storm drains and hence into a
stream and Okanagan Lake, forcing closure of a popular beach and raising deep concern about the welfare of
resident wildlife. â€œ The Lower Mainland is virtually the same; chemicals, water squeezed from
garbage trucks, pulp mill effluent, everything is sweeping down storm drains into the river,â€? he said.

Five-year-old learns lesson about dialing 911 Black Press
A sibling squabble over computer access is not a reason to call 911, a young Kelowna boy learned earlier this week. On Monday, the five-year-old apparently became upset when his six-year-old sister would not let him spend time on the family computer. “After threatening to call police on his sister, the boy dialed 911 and told the operator he needed police help,” said Const. Steve Holmes, spokesman for the Kelowna RCMP detachment. “He then hung up, prompting a quick response from police officers, who converged on his residence in the Glenmore area.” Arriving officers were relieved to find no emergency, Holmes notes. An officer then took the time to find out from the boy when he thought it was appropriate to call 911 dispatch. “The youngster stated that 911 should be called when there’s a fire, when someone is hurt, or if a stranger wants to hurt them,” said Holmes. “After recognizing his error, the lad also made it clear that 911 shouldn’t be called when your sister won’t let you on the computer.” Police say adults also need to be reminded that 911 is just for emergencies. Operators receive numerous non-emergency complaints, some as trivial as asking for sports scores or calling for a taxi. “A lot of the calls, however, involve incidents that are historical and are no longer in progress, and therefore not emergencies,” he said. “These kinds of calls can interfere with those who are trying to call in with legitimate emergencies.”
When a 911 operator receives a call, they
ask the caller if it is life or death or a crime in
progress. If it is neither of
those, tell the operator and then hang up and
call the non emergency number listed at the
front of the phone book, according to Holmes.

Parents need to know rules for driving teens The weather is hot, school is out and now your teenager wants to hit the road â€“ in your car. In 2009, more than 50,000 teens got their first B.C. driverâ€™s licence. Once your teen has passed a knowledge exam and vision test, however, not only are new drivers more prone to crash, but one in four of their crashes result in an injury or fatality. Here are ICBCâ€™s top five tips to help teach your teen how to drive smart: 1 â€” Set the right example: Your children will observe your actions and attitude from a very young age. Remember that most driving slip-ups result from lapses of attention, so stay away from anything that takes your mind from the road like food, coffee or makeup. And remember, itâ€™s not only dangerous but itâ€™s now against the law to use a handheld electronic device while driving. When your teenâ€™s in the learner stage, youâ€™ll get a copy of ICBCâ€™s Tuning up for Drivers guide with their licence. Review it with them. This is a good time for parents to brush up on the rules of the road and work on any bad habits. 2 â€” Get in the experts: Consider giving your teen the opportunity to take some lessons with a professional driving instructor. Many driving school courses include classroom time and road safety theory. More importantly, a driving school instructor can be objective without the emotion involved in many parent-teen relationships. If you do choose this route, remember to stay involved and discuss what theyâ€™re learning. 3 â€” Remember the restrictions: B.C.â€™s Graduated Licensing Program (GLP) has helped lower the crash rate of new drivers by ensuring they gain the driving experience they need in a more controlled, lower-risk environment, and then expanding their privileges as they become safer on the road.
As a parent, you should know the restrictions of the GLP and ensure that your teen sticks to them. The new-
est restriction bans GLP drivers from using cell phones and all electronic devices while driving, including hands-free.
4 â€” Put it in writing: You may want to consider creating a family contract and set of house rules that are
in line with the GLP restrictions. Go to icbc.com and create your own family contract that sets out your
expectations of your teen, the responsibilities you want them to show on the road, and the consequences for break-
ing those rules. For more tips, and a complete list of restrictions regarding the GLP, go to icbc.com.

life C !CHIEVING HARMONY WITH FENG SHUI %$)4/2 +ATHERINE -ORTIMER s s LIFESTYLES VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM
Morning Star Staff
A fresh coat of paint, a shift of a sofa and a strategically placed calabash are ways in which feng shui can change a homeâ€™s energy. As a feng shui practitioner, Samantha Plovie can walk into a house and figure out what works and what doesnâ€™t. â€œThe house will talk to me. But feng shui cannot change your lifeâ€™s destiny, it cannot produce money from a tree in the back garden, but it can give you inspiration,â€? said Plovie, who runs Chi Solutions Feng Shui Foundations in Vernon. â€œIt can give you a foundation from which to build upon.â€? Feng shui is an ancient Chinese practice that is thousands of years old. It is the art of placing and arranging matter and space in the correct manner to achieve harmony with the environment. This harmony can refer to the harmony in the home, in relationships, in wealth and many other aspects. By the time Plovie signed up to study with Teresa Hwang, a Vernon-based feng shui master and lecturer with the Feng Shui Research Centre, she had been through one of the worst years of her life. â€œI kept bumping into Teresa over the last few years,â€? said Plovie. â€œWhen I next crossed paths with her, lots of things had happened. My husband lost his job in 2008 because the economy had turned, my mom died in 2009. Things piled up and I contacted Teresa. â€œI felt lost and I didnâ€™t know where I should be but Teresa looked at my destiny chart and said â€˜youâ€™re where you should be.â€™ And it made me feel very calm. She said everything will change in 2010. I thought Iâ€™d done something to create this in the universe that came out of my husband losing his job, but itâ€™s the best thing that happened to us. He got a new job, and I realized the time was right to start my studies in feng shui. â€œI told Teresa three years ago that I was interested, but the timing wasnâ€™t right. The timing is very key in feng shui. She knew... she is a huge inspiration in my life. She quietly sits there and brings clarity.â€? Plovie and Hwang practise the Flying Star School of Feng Shui, which many consider the most powerful form. It has nothing to do with astrology, but is an analysis of the five elements and star combinations that occupy a building. â€œThis is the most vibrant, it moves. Chi is lifeâ€™s breath, it rides the wind and the water catches it,â€? said Plovie, who trained with Hwang, along with one other student, doing four modules in eight days, an intense,
multi-layered course. For Plovie, it felt like a good fit right from the start. â€œI had always thought that colours and shapes meant something,â€? she said. â€œIn my life Iâ€™ve always wanted to improve things around me, which can be both a blessing and a curse. Iâ€™m someone that cannot turn away when I see that something could be done more effectively, easier, and I think this is how I ended up here. I strive for excellence in all I do, and my goal is always to help.â€? Plovie and Hwang first met a number of years ago while both were working out at Kal Fitness. Plovie introduced herself and expressed interest in learning more about feng shui. From there, Plovie began attending Hwangâ€™s public feng shui lectures and began to study the practice. â€œShe is keen on putting her knowledge to practice right away,â€? said Hwang, who has mentored Plovie on various projects. â€œHer career is blossoming greatly under my tutelage. With her honest and outgoing personality, great integrity, keen sense of the environment, great appreciation of balance and harmony in decor, her attention to detail and lightningquick mind, her clients will benefit greatly with her involvement in improving their lives with her feng shui knowledge. â€œI am proud to have Samantha as one of my students, and look forward to having her as a colleague.â€? Plovie said classic feng shui is concise, with deep roots and a clear path. It is not something that changes with home trends. â€œIt remains true to its innate form and has a tremendous amount of common sense,â€? said Plovie. â€œAs practitioners of feng shui, we donâ€™t try to teach our clients the art itself, we teach how to become more aware of your environment and use it to your advantage. â€œThere are a lot of misconceptions out there, the biggest is not taking in the fact that feng shui moves. Every house has an innate character, but the earth moves, itâ€™s forever changing.â€? When Plovie made the decision to study feng shui, she said a key component was the support of her family: husband Rick and kids Mackenzie, 15, and Spencer, 11. â€œMy husband chuckled when I first told him, but heâ€™s always watched me changing things in our house, so he thinks Iâ€™m a perfect fit for this. And my kids have been great, especially since Iâ€™ve set up their bedrooms according to feng shui principles.â€? A client will often tell Plovie that they have never felt relaxed in a certain room or theyâ€™ve never slept well in their house.
Samantha Plovie uses her Luopan compass to take a reading of a clientâ€™s home or business. â€œFeng shui has the answers, but it is only part of the picture: human luck comes into play also, but if you have an open mind and can see that things could be better, then feng shui is in your future.â€? Plovie will help clients to make adjustments by changing a paint colour or shifting the location of the bed in the master bedroom. A calabash is used frequently and, while decorative, is also an important tool. â€œWe use them frequently, to collect the chi.â€? Traditionally made from the calabash fruit, they are now made of other materials, while retaining the bottle shape of the original. When a person has a disease, feng shui recommends hanging a calabash, near
the door or by the personâ€™s bed to absorb the bad energy away from the person. â€œWe are using colour and shape to create a better balance for the family. Form can be the shape of a table or sofa. We use colours and forms to support the beneficial stars.â€? Plovie will ask a client which room they are drawn to, the room where they take their cup of coffee in the morning, because thatâ€™s where they feel good. When Plovie goes through a home the first time, she takes photos. Back at her office, she spends hours going over her findings to come up with a written report for a client along with a â€œcheat sheetâ€? for quick reference.

Rachel Boult has written Sleepy Lion Lullaby for her nephew, Everett.
Writing a lullaby for Everett Morning Star Staff
Rachel Boult is convinced there’s a little magic in her children’s book, Sleepy Lion Lullaby. “It started with a great idea to paint animals in space. I started with six animals and as I painted each one, they began to tell me, or rather whisper, a story of blissful, dreamy sleepiness to me and I realized it could be a book,” she said. “Animals, space and dreams are three of my favourite things and with that as my inspiration, I wrote some verses, painted a few more pictures and put it all together.” Boult did everything for the book herself and her sister, Roxanne Brierley persuaded her to have 2,000 copies printed. “The book was made with love, trust and reverence for this beautiful world and the expansive universe to which it belongs. I hope people will enjoy reading it
and, most importantly, the children they read it to will also enjoy it and sleep well and have sweet, sweet dreams.” Sleepy Lion Lullaby has soothing verses and illustrations, animals connected to the reader in delicate descriptions of shared dream space and collective reverence for the magic in the universe. Boult has studied creative writing, painting and has has a B.Ed from the University of British Columbia. She
lives in Victoria where she works as a substitute teacher and camp leader and has an art studio teaching children’s art classes. She also does readings, hosts writers’ workshops and directs writing and art projects in elementary schools. Boult will be reading from her book and signing copies at Chicken Little in Vernon Tuesday at 11 a.m. For more information, see the website at www.shynessandbloom. com.

Not ready to forgive her sister
ear Annie: I have three sisters, but the one who was my best friend in the whole world was “Michele.” Nine years ago, I found Michele and my husband of 19 years in bed together. They both said, “It’s not what you think,” but really, Annie, they were both naked in the bed. There was no mistaking what they were doing. I lost both my sister and my husband in one day, and I haven’t spoken to either of them since. My exhusband moved out of state, but I cannot look at Michele without feeling betrayed. For nine years, my mother has been after me to forgive and forget. Am I wrong for still holding a grudge? Michele sees my daughters and tells them she misses me, and my kids are friendly with her children. They say she gets drunk and cries all the time. But I sim-

Please remind your readers that it’s never OK to comment on a woman’s weight, especially when she’s pregnant. — Not Fat Dear Not: We marvel at the audacity of people who think they are entitled to voice their opinion about anyone’s size, particularly that of a pregnant woman. The polite response is, “Thank you for your opinion. I’m happy to give you my doctor’s phone number if you want to discuss it with him.” Dear Annie: You printed a letter from “Washington,” whose boyfriend has two sisters who are overweight and have odor problems. When people become obese, they discover they can no longer reach certain body parts. For many, this is the cause of bad
Balancing the energy with an ancient art continued from C1 For client Johane Andrews, owner of Trim ‘n Fit Exclusive Personal Training Studio, hiring Plovie was a chance to provide her clients with a more welcoming workout environment with a stronger vitality. It’s an environment where the trainers not only support individuals with fitness and nutrition, but they are often key to the well-being of the individual. Andrews was searching for a way to shape the workout environment to benefit both happiness and well-being. “The changes Samantha recommended are being done in stages, with moving the office as the first change,” she said. “It’s made a huge difference. There’s more of a connected, welcoming feel. “Feng shui helps reduce stress, improves health, and provides vigor and optimism, all ingredients that help people reach their fitness goals.” For Plovie, who has lived in Vernon for 10 years, she is exactly where she needs to be. Her children are at an age where they’re more independent, and she is able to devote the time required to her new career. “I love what I’m doing, it’s all fallen into place. I’m not motivated by money. By doing the right thing, you are going to be successful, and the money will come.

She could also offer to help them with their bathing. When a person is obese, it is refreshing to be able to get clean, and it can be nearly impossible to clean yourself. Hope this helps. — Been Heavy in Florida Dear Florida: We cannot imagine anyone giving her boyfriend’s sisters such a gift, nor offering to help with their bathing.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Collective effort has its rewards. While working in close conjunction with one or two other people, your team could end up making a big impact on something important. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) It isnâ€™t likely that you will feel fulfilled unless you work on something you believe to be of importance. Devote as much time as you can possibly spare to do so. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Although it generally isnâ€™t always a good policy to mix business with pleasure, it might be one of those rare times when you should if you can. Close your deal while playing golf or tennis. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Proceed on the path youâ€™re on by handling one step at a time, and there is every reason to believe that youâ€™ll be able to close out a critical assignment that has given others fits. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) This is a better than usual time to take care of neglected e-mails or important correspondence you havenâ€™t had time to handle. Once you put your personal affairs in good working order, you can relax. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Financial matters are likely to turn out to be more in your favor than they might at another time, so get right on them. Try to resolve and/or conclude all financial deals. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Avoid involvements with anybody who makes demands on your time. It will be important that
youâ€™re able to operate at your own discretion and able to do what you want. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The things you do for those you love and not what you do for yourself will provide you with the greatest gratification. You wonâ€™t wait to be asked, but will jump right in when needed.

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 Whenever I run a deal like this one, I wonder about the percentages and whether it really is worth worrying about bad breaks. In the real world they happen less often than in newspaper columns. West leads the spade queen against three notrump. How can South guarantee his contract? Although I believe a twono-trump opening should show 21 or 22 points, good 20s count. And that South hand is a good 20 because of the four aces and one king. If you count two points for an ace and one for a king, a two-no-trump opening will normally have seven points. This hand has nine. The only drawbacks are no intermediates (10s and 9s) and the 4-3-3-3 distribution.
Declarer has six top tricks: two spades, one heart, one diamond and two clubs. He can easily get three more from the diamonds, but it looks tempting to try for an overtrick. Assume he plays a club to dummy’s king, planning to run the diamond eight. East’s discard will be a body blow. West will duck this diamond trick and the next. Then South will get only three diamond tricks and eight in all. However, suppose at trick two declarer cashes his diamond ace, then continues diamonds. West may hold up his king until the fourth round of the suit, but the club king is in the dummy as an entry to reach the last diamond, and the contract makes.
West will have all four diamonds only 4.8 percent of the time. And when South starts with his diamond ace, he will drop the singleton king 12.4 percent of the time. Over 100 deals South would be a little more than 1,000 points better off by taking the diamond-ace safetyplay.
