Hope for Japan RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s cultural heritage will be celebrated as a way of helping victims of Japan’s earthquake. The City of Vernon, the Vernon Arts Centre and the Vernon Japanese Cultural Society are hosting two events April 21 for earthquake and tsunami relief. “The level of devastation and the impact of the earthquake and the tsunami has affected all of us, especially because we have a sister city there,” said Coun. Buffy Baumbrough of Tome, Japan. “A lot of people have visited there and want to help.” The Vernon Arts Centre will have a table at Earth Day celebrations at Spirit Square, by city hall, from 11:30 CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Keita Mizuno, one, enjoys a foray into a shrubbery forest Saturday with some ori“For a loonie, stugami paper while spending time at the Japanese Cultural Centre during the sushi dents can make an and bake sale/bottle drive fundraiser for Japan disaster relief. origami crane,” said Baumbrough. participate in the fund- assistance to earthquake with officials in Tome, “We hope that there raising can contact and tsunami victims, where some buildings will be 1,000 cranes.” Coun.

Spring signals Highway 97 work RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Crews will start tackling a multi-million-dollar transportation project this spring. Windley Contracting of Nanaimo has been awarded a $40.8 million contract for the new four-lane Highway 97 between Winfield and Oyama. “Sometime near the end of April we should be able to start construction,� said Reid Drummond, project manager for the Ministry of Transportation. The plan is to have the nine-kilometre, upland route completed in 2013. Drummond doesn’t believe there will be any major interruption for motorists once work does begin. “The bulk of the project is away from the existing alignment,� he said of the cur-

“This will solve a lot of safety issues.� — Guenther rent highway along Wood Lake. The $77.9 million project was announced in 2008 by the federal and provincial governments as a way of reducing the number of accidents in the area. It was decided to construct a new upland route because the existing narrow, two-lane highway would have been too challenging to expand because of Wood Lake on one side and rock cliffs on the other side.

The District of Lake Country had been demanding upgrades for years. “It’s very good news,� said Coun. Noreen Guenther of the construction contract being awarded. “This will solve a lot of safety issues. There are still a lot of accidents going on there.� Five people were killed in motor vehicle accidents on the existing narrow, two-lane highway between 2005 and 2008. Guenther believes that a new highway will improve commercial trade in the Okanagan by making it easier for goods and services to be transported. “The economic activity with the construction will also benefit the valley,� she said. It’s expected the project will create more than 250 jobs during construction.

A busy election scene has delayed a proposed attempt to recall MLA Eric Foster. Organizers of the recall effort against the VernonMonashee Liberal MLA say there was interest in proceeding with a petition campaign during a meeting Sunday, but the timing of an effort is unknown. Eric Foster “There are lots of issues involved like the HST referendum and the federal election,� said Rod Baziw, with the organizing group. “We could lose a lot of volunteers because of those.� It was originally suggested that a recall petition could begin in mid-March and June was recently considered. But Baziw says organizers need to know that the resources are in place to go doorto-door with petitions if a petition against Foster hopes to be successful. “The biggest concern is the number of volunteers required.� There are currently 45,206 registered voters in Vernon-Monashee and 18,082 signatures would be required to recall Foster. During a visit by former premier Bill Vander Zalm in January, it was announced that 300 volunteer canvassers had been signed up in the constituency. The recall committee will hold a meeting April 17 at 2 p.m. at the People Place to determine further effort in a campaign.

Vehicles pulled off road ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

A total of 15 commercial vehicles, out of 64 checked, were taken out of service following a three-day North Okanagan commercial vehicle inspection. Members of the Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP’s North Okanagan Traffic Services and Integrated Road Safety Unit conducted the inspection March 22-24 in partnership with provincial commercial vehicle inspectors and WorkSafe BC. The purpose behind the checks was to enforce B.C. driving laws and safety and WorkSafe BC regulations. The average of five commercial vehicles a day taken off the road is a bit alarming to the local RCMP. “We have these commercial vehicles out there that are not road-worthy, and five a day is a pretty big number when you consider that’s what is out there on a daily basis,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We’d like to see it down to none, of course, but there are always those individuals who are probably just trying to make it to the end of the month or inspection time. “With 15 of them out there, in those three days, out of 64, that’s a pretty high number.” Molendyk figured it would be items such as brakes, front-end damage or the wear of the vehi-

“We’d like to see it down to none.” — Gord Molendyk cle’s tires that resulted in the vehicles being taken off the road for repairs. During the check stops, police and inspectors also checked private vehicles. In the three-day campaign, officials wrote 68 violation tickets under the Motor Vehicle Act; eight seatbelt tickets were written; there were 38 written warnings for vehicle defects; police stopped three prohibited drivers and had their vehicles impounded, and police also made two small drug seizures. The road checks will continue, said Molendyk, to ensure area roadways are safe for all motorists. Vernon RCMP were also kept busy last week dealing with problem motorists. Police issued 10 24-hour prohibition, six for marijuana and four for alcohol. Three drivers were given three-day Immediate Roadside Prohibitions (IRPs) and one was given a 90-day IRP. Six vehicles were impounded for various infractions.

Vandals target Falkland Stampede grounds ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

The rash of recent vandalism at the Falkland Stampede grounds is resulting in lost sleep for Bob Carson. The man who looks after the grounds on a volunteer basis is befuddled by the acts of vandalism, including spray-painted graffiti and property damage, that have been happening for no rhyme or reason. “It’s happened in the past, keeps going on and on, then it goes for a lull, it’s good for awhile, then all of a sudden it starts over again,” said Carson. “It’s a frustrating situation. Everyday I only sleep about half-the-night, wondering what’s going on up there again. I just can’t keep up.” In recent weeks, vandals have spraypainted gold paint graffiti on the grandstands and some of the barrels on the grounds. They have also used some kind of metal implement to get into private property on the grounds. The roof has been torn off a souvenir booth as well as the area where the cowboys change. Barbecue glass was smashed over the entrance to the grandstand. Locks have been ripped off doors to some of the concessions where items inside the concession have been opened up and spread around. A two-inch door was ripped out of the wall of one booth, resulting in damage to the screws and boards. While Carson refers to it as “Mickey Mouse-style” vandalism, the damage does add up. Everything is repaired by volunteer labour but the monetary total for such damage would likely be into the thousands of dollars. “It drives me crazy,” said Stampede manager Jason Churchill of the vandalism. “Every single person on our committee is volunteering their time, nobody gets paid. We’re up there having work parties, working our butts off. And any money we raise goes back into the community. “It sure would be nice to find out who is doing this because it’s driving us insane.” Anybody with any information on the vandalism at the Falkland Stampede grounds is asked to

to restrict use of bottled water. “Water is becoming a commodity and it is only available to people who can afford it,” said student Justine Correia. Correia added that residents and farmers in some Third World nations are losing access to water because large corporations are directing the resource towards bottling for western consumers. It was also pointed out that energy is required to make the bottles and transport them to market. “A majority of plastic bottles are not being recycled,” said student Lauren Dixon.

“We need to be able to provide people with free sources of water and that can come in the form of fountains.” During their presentation, the students indicated that bottle water bans have occurred across Canada in cities, schools and universities.

Cultural shift into construction zone RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts is the highlight of the social calendar, but a new location is raising eyebrows. The Vernon Art Gallery has asked the City of Vernon for permission to hold the annual fundraiser in Cenotaph Park July 20. However, 31st Avenue could be torn up as part of proposed road construction. “It’s not the event I would think to put on in a construction zone,” said Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe. That is a concern shared by Coun. Shawn Lee, who believes construction could be disruptive. “Should they take a stroll to other works to see what’s going on?” he said. Vernon Art Gallery officials selected Cenotaph Park as a one-time only location for Midsummer’s Eve as a way of celebrating the 25th anniversary of the event. We’d like to do something spectacular,” said president Marion Morrison, adding that the location would increase the profile of the gallery and downtown. “We want to show all of the things we can do downtown.” Morrison believes the event can be

tion if the gallery is looking for another location. “Maybe Polson Park and the new pavilion would work better for them,” he said. The city’s finance committee is currently considering a request from the gallery for $2,000 for fencing Cenotaph Park.

Paintballs damage house, vehicles in Coldstream ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Every year, sighed Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk, police get reports of individuals going on a paintball spree. The spree started Saturday in Coldstream. A home in the 12000 block of Kalamalka Road, and two cars in the 8700 block of Aberdeen Road were paintballed with green paint. It’s believe the incidents happened between noon and 2 p.m. “It’s a senseless act

of wilful damage,” said Molendyk. “Police are asking anybody with any information about the individuals involved to contact us.” Police made enquiries around the neighbourhoods, but nobody reported seeing anyone shooting paintballs. The two incidents were the only ones reported to police and there does not appear to be a link between the two homes. Molendyk did not have a damage estimate available.

Democracy 101

I

t appears that some Lumby residents are wanting to have their cake and eat it too. Those opposed to a correctional facility setting up shop in the community have blasted village council’s handling of the issue. And rightly so. At times the process hasn’t seemed very transparent. Instead of simply just presenting information to the public, council has given the impression that a prison is a foregone conclusion. Mayor Kevin Acton’s comments certainly haven’t been impartial. But despite calls for democracy and openness to prevail, the opposition forces are now treading a very thin line. On CHBC March 24, Paul Fisher, Lumby Richard Rolke Concerned Citizens spokesman, was asked if his group would accept a yes vote for a prison during the April 30 referendum. His response was, “Even though we might lose the referendum, we’re not going to stop.” Now Fisher might have meant that his group may continue to express concerns about the potential impact of a prison on Lumby if a majority of Lumby residents endorse a facility, and they may lobby for changes to minimize those concerns if a building actually goes ahead. Such action would certainly be acceptable. However, it would be easy to read into Fisher’s comments that his group will not accept anything but a no vote April 30 and they will consider other options to prevent a jail from coming to town. If that is what is intended, then that would be extremely unfortunate, particularly from a group whose reputation has been partly based on being inclusive and having rank-and-file citizens listened to. Imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and a majority of Lumby residents (and in

BEYOND THE HEADLINES

our system, a majority is 50 per cent plus one) voted that they didn’t want a prison, but council and the yes side proceeded to ask the government for one. Heads would roll. There would be immediate demands for resignations. There would be threats of legal action. So if members of Lumby Concerned Citizens are going to hold village council to a certain moral and political standard, they must be willing to walk the talk themselves. If there is a yes vote April 30, Lumby Concerned Citizens won’t be happy, but they must accept the results. Obviously they should remain vigilant and ensure that government and council promises are fulfilled, but there must be no talk of overturning the referendum results no matter how questionable the process has been. Back in February, Fisher took a swing at his elected officials. “We are disappointed in the way council has handled this critical issue because we now have a community divided and becoming more divided,” he said. There is absolutely no question Lumby and area is divided, and the entire debate has got personal and nasty at times. But given Fisher’s comments that “we’re not going to stop” if there is a yes vote, the rift will get even worse if Lumby Concerned Citizens tries to relive the fight. It is one thing to stand up for what you believe is right, but it’s completely another to turn the screws when the majority has spoken. Also, by implying that they won’t abide by the referendum outcome, the Lumby Concerned Citizens are giving approval to those who want a prison to do the same if a majority of residents vote in the negative. It will become nothing but an endless, vicious cycle. Acton and the rest of council have indicated publicly that they will live with what ever happens April 30, and it is time for Lumby Concerned Citizens to do the same.

Obviously, it is within the mandate of Vernon council to question the location of a new transit bus terminus. Putting it next to Cenotaph Park and shutting down that portion of 31st Avenue to vehicles may not be the wisest choice. But instead of waiting until the 11th hour to raise those concerns Monday, where were these same council members last summer? On July 26, 2010, council authorized staff to work with B.C. Transit on the design of a transit terminus at the proposed location on 31st Avenue. Only Coun. Shawn Lee was absent from that meeting, and none of the politicians present opposed the motion. Since that time, city staff has been under the impression that they had the green light to proceed with designs of the $805,000 project. Agreements were hammered out to ensure B.C. Transit was picking up 47 per cent of the tab. And as part of the city centre neighbourhood plan, transportation strategies went before the public for input. Among the concepts was the transit terminus next to Cenotaph Park. The process has moved ahead unimpeded by council because tenders for construction were supposed to be issued next week. Things are now on hold until the April 11 council meeting, and while the project may still proceed, construction timelines may be delayed because of unexpected waffling. B.C. Transit funding could also be put at risk. But most importantly, council has sent staff a message that approval doesn’t really mean approval and countless hours of time, as well as money, can be wasted. Council members shouldn’t just rubber-stamp staff recommendations, but if they’re going to reverse course, don’t wait until the last minute.

Water rate hike doesn't add up

B

asic arithmetic proves conclusively that the proposed new water fee structure recommended by GVAC penalizes most those who do their utmost to conserve water. Often, these are people on low-wage or limitedpension incomes who least can afford an increase. GVAC proposes to sock the heftiest water rate increases to people who do not water lawns, wash cars or flush after every use and who minimize water used for washing clothes, dishes and themselves. Incredible as it seems, GVAC proposes the best water savers suffer the highest water rate increases. Duh! The amount of water included in the quarterly base fee is proposed to be cut in half from 20 to 10 cubic metres per quarter. As a result, people who cut back water usage substantially to save both water and dollars (think a single senior or young adult renter) so they could make do with the 20 cubic metres included in the old base rate will see an increase from $50.17 per quarter to $74. That works out to a 48 per cent increase for our most frugal water users!

WAY TO GO Thank you for your recent article on Richard Harrison, a Grade 5 student at Harwood School who won the Canspell regional championship and qualified for the national championships in Toronto. I am a board member of the Junction Literacy Society as well as the Coordinator for the North Okanagan Early Childhood Development Coalition. In the past year, we have had a Screen Smart public awareness campaign to alert children, parents, early childhood and classroom educators, and the community at large to the increasing challenges of screen time in relation to children’s healthy development. We know that there is a relationship between too much screen time and language development. Children who have poor vocabulary skills at age three are usually the same children who arrive at kindergarten vulnerable on one or more developmental scales. These are the same children who are struggling with reading at the end of Grade 3 and the same youths who fail to attain high school graduation. Poor literacy skills impact educational achievement, employment, physical and mental health, social inclusion and

It is possible to survive on only 10 cubic metres per quarter by flushing only when absolutely necessary and by reducing clothes washing and bathing to a minimum. That would result in a savings of $7.80 under the proposed new water rates and reduce the increase to only 32 per cent... but… that extra saving would involve a drop in one’s quality of life and probably comes with some health risks.

success in personal relationships. We know that 47 per cent of Canadian adults wrestle with functional literacy issues and that almost one in three children in the North Okanagan arrive at school without the skills they need for school success. We also know that 90% of brain development happens in the first five years! Richard Harrison’s parents have stated that they have no cable and very limited movie and computer time. They put a priority on reading and not only Richard, but also his younger brother have competed in spelling challenges. Screen time including TV, video games, computers and hand-held electronic devices can be “addictive” and keep children from doing what they really need to be doing in their early years – playing actively outdoors and with friends, reading, eating nutritious meals, and getting adequate sleep. On average, our children are viewing screens 7.5 hours per day. Often they have screens in their rooms which cannot be well-monitored by parents and can interfere with sleep. Commercials promote unhealthy food choices and children who spend too much time in front of screens are at risk for obesity and diabetes. Research also shows that too much screen time

can make children depressed and anxious. The Morning Star is to be commended for highlighting Richard’s excellent achievement and our community should be proud of this young man. I would also like to recognize Richard’s parents for their pivotal role in modelling and encouraging his interest in reading and his achievements with spelling. It is not easy in today’s society to take a stand as a parent and keep screen time to a minimum. I would like to put a challenge out there to all parents – turn off the screens, read, talk, play, sing and enjoy the outdoor activities that the North Okanagan has to offer. Lynne Reside THANK YOU No one wakes up thinking hmmm ... I think I'd like to spend some time in the hospital today. Unfortunately many of us don't have a choice and do end up in the hospital, with serious life-threatening health problems. My situation escalated and became very serious quite quickly several weeks ago. All I can say, is thank heavens for the well-trained and alert staff at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. I don't expect every one to understand

Those who make do with only 40 cubic metres of water per quarter are not hit as hard. Their water bill will only increase by 31 per cent. It helps if you are a bit of a water hog and splurge by using 100 cubic metres per quarter. You get hit with a paltry increase of only 22 per cent. Your old water bill would go from a bit less than $500 per year to a bit more than $600. Of course, if you use even more than 100 cubic metres per quarter then your bill will be closer to the 20 per cent overall increase touted by the water gurus at GVAC. I urge you to write a letter, make a phone call or collar a politician or water board official eye ball to eye ball. Maybe we need to hire someone who knows how to manage costs and keep them within the bounds of our ability to pay. Sticking our most needy with water rate increases upwards of 50 per cent is not acceptable. Nor is letting non-food producers have the benefit of low agricultural water rates…they should be limited to food producers alone, shouldn’t they? Jim Bodkin

how traumatic and horrifying an exposure to this kind of situation can be on an individual. With all confidence I can assure everyone, that at the Vernon Jubilee Hospital they will be looked after by the most efficient, competent staff they or their family members could ever hope for. I was overwhelmed with stress, anxiety and fear. These well-trained professionals not only performed their jobs with stellar accuracy, but went the extra mile to comfort, calm, and soothe me. What probably impressed me the most though, was that for over a week as I was there recovering, they made me feel like family. Despite their heavy work loads, they still catered to my every need, right down to bringing me a portable telephone to speak with family members from out of province. So now as I continue to recover at home, I wish to thank everyone from the ambulance attendants who sprung into action and did an amazing job. As well as each and every staff member who went out of their way and well beyond their job descriptions and responsibilities to ensure my comfort and recovery. These amazing people saved my life and continued on about their daily routines as if they had done

community volunteers,” said Gord Molendyk, media spokesperson for the program. “Their duties involve patrolling streets, business areas, parks, hotels and shopping centre lots, as well as documenting suspicious activities.” Volunteers have undergone three interviews covering security and program interests. Training involves developing observation and patrol skills, taking notes, court procedures and working with outside agencies including the RCMP, bylaw and

ICBC. In 2010, COP volunteers recovered 15 stolen vehicles and one boat; were responsible for eight arrests; patrolled more than 24,200 kilometres in Vernon; worked 281 shifts and volunteered more than 3,000 hours. Managed by Regan Borisenko, the crime prevention co-ordinator with the safe communities unit, the COP program will hit the streets in April.

Artists sought to help Armstrong celebrate centennial ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Armstrong council has hit on a banner idea to help the city celebrate its 100th birthday in 2013. Council will be commissioning banners to hang throughout the city in 2012 and 2013. “We’ll be trying to design some new banners for the city,” said Mayor Chris Pieper. “We’ll ask local schools, art clubs and the museum if they want to participate in helping us design some decorative

“We’ll be trying to design some new banners for the city.” — Chris Pieper banners.” The banners hope to be finalized by June and then go to print.

The finished product will hang on the streets of Armstrong for two years, replacing the existing banners. Library party a hit More than 700 people stopped by the Armstrong-Spallumcheen branch to wish the Okanagan Regional Library a happy 75th birthday. The library hosted a day-long celebration on March 26. “The library averages about 200 people a day during regular times, so they had

about 500 more,” said Armstrong Coun. Sully O’Sullivan, the city’s representative on the ORL board. “It was very good.” The highlight of the day for O’Sullivan, and many of the attendees, was the local library history lesson given by former employee Ruth Bosomworth, 97. “She was unbelievable,” said O’Sullivan. “She remembered everything about the history of the library. She was so sharp. She worked for the library in the ‘60s. Everybody was astounded by her memory and recollections.”

Event pays off for seniors Morning Star Staff

Seniors’ organizations have received a financial boost. Seven charities split $2,250 during the Heaton Place Charity Challenge, which ended Sunday after seven weeks of voting. “The big winner of the Charity Challenge was Armstrong’s Senior’s Activity Centre, which received a total of 62 per cent of the vote to walk away with $1,395 to put towards their many programs that benefit local seniors,” said Meghan Kines, with Heaton Place in Armstrong. “The Armstrong Royal Canadian Legion received 25 per cent of the votes and received $562, while the Seniors’ Information and Resource Bureau of Vernon received five per cent to take home $112.” The remaining eight per cent of the votes were split among the Alzheimer’s Society, the Royal Canadian Legion in Enderby, the Halina Centre and the Schubert Centre. The other winner of the day was Stella Meger who won the draw for the LED television that she qualified for with her vote.

Okanagan conservation officers are being deluged with complaints about coyotes.

C HECK I T O UT AT B OOKLAND

“We create the ideal habitat in the city. No one chases them and there’s lots of garbage available for them to eat,� he said. Wise warned that it’s illegal for anyone to set a trap without a permit or to shoot in the city limits with either a firearm or a bow. “Leave it to the proper authorities,� he advised. The worst time to walk your dog is in the morning or evening, because coyotes will sleep during the day and become active overnight. Pets, however, are not their favourite food. A study in the Chicago-area indicated that mice and deer, mostly from roadkills, is tops on the list, while pets are in 10th or 11th place.

THE LAND OF PAINTED CAVES T highly anticipated sixth book of Jean The AAuel’s Earth’s Children series, The Land of Painted Caves, is the culmination fans hhave been waiting for. Continuing the sstory of Ayla and Jondalar, Auel combines hher brilliant narrative skills and appealing characters with a remarkable re-creation of the way life was lived more than 25,000 years ago. The Land of Painted Caves is an exquisite achievement by one of the world’s most beloved authors. “As with her other books, Auel spins her tale with credible dialogue, believable situations and considerable drama. More than that, she deftly creates a whole world, giving a sense of the origins of class, ethnic and cultural differences that alternately divide and fascinate us today. Among modern epic spinners, Auel has few peers.� — Kirkus Reviews (starred)

We have something for everybody! 

Vehicles are about the only enemies coyotes have in urban areas, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough to control their numbers, so coyote complaints are way up, according to conservation officer Ed Seitz. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been inundated by calls about coyotes. February is their breeding month so they are more active than usual,â&#x20AC;? Seitz explained. Because many municipalities prohibit the discharge of firearms within their boundaries, Seitz said coyotes in this area have lost their fear of man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They thrive where there are houses and farms, where they can take smaller pets and other animals. There are more than I can ever remember.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are just no controls on increasing populations of them. In the wilderness, there would be hunting pressure and predator pressure, but in the city collisions with vehicles are the only limiting factor.â&#x20AC;? In a few instances, Seitz said their behaviour has bordered on very aggressive to humans, for instance by taking a pet thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with a human. In the Vernon area, one was even taken off a leash, he noted. Another coyote was caught acting quite fearless, stalking a manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dog, and the man wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even aware of the danger the pet was in, related Seitz. Everyone out walking a pet should be sure to carry a stout walking stick at least, or an air horn. Even carry a pocket full of rocks, which can be tossed at a coyote if necessary, he advised. He warned you should never feed the animals, either accidentally or intentionally. Once a coyote expects food and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it, it can be quite aggressive, he said, although he isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t aware of anyone being bit yet. He warned people to take protection when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re out with their kids because coyotes are real opportunists. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re also clever and very difficult to get in to live traps, he said. Pete Wise, of Wise Wildlife Control Services agrees, noting it can take 1,000 trap hours to capture a coyote. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re highly adaptable and resilient. Traps have to be monitored, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very expensive to live trap them,â&#x20AC;? Wise said. Currently, he said coyotes would be undercover, but come April and May, they will have had their pups and become very protective of their den sites. Both mates go into feeding mode when the pups are born, he said. If a den is disturbed the mother will actually pick up her babies and move them, so if you locate a den in a residential area, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best to notify the CO Service, he advised.

News Investigation clears police in Tavares matter R G OL F S W I NG ! YOU

KATHY MICHAELS Black Press

An investigation into the way Kelowna Mounties dispersed information about the now-infamous Buddy Tavares case, has come up in favour of the police, but the human rights watchdog that lodged a complaint isn’t letting go just yet. “We heard a couple weeks ago that the investigation by the RCMP was complete, but it still has to be reviewed by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP,” said David Eby, with the B.C.

There’s no reason for the RCMP to release information, other than to say they’re investigating.” Eby said even if they are doing their best to be even handed, something could go awry and then they’ve potentially tainted a case. “That’s a no-win situation, and gives them no option except to do damage control and that shouldn’t be their first responsibility,” he said. “As soon as there’s

Flying club serves up tasty fundraiser Pi Day cooks up funds for Japan Morning Star Staff

Raising funds for earthquake and tsunami relief is as easy as pi. The Vernon Flying Club recently celebrated Pi Day — which recognizes the ϖ symbol for mathematical pi. The $1,450 raised at the event will go to Japan. “The party began with pizza pie, and finished up with a bounty of pies prepared and contributed by the members,” said Alison Crerar, with the club. “In appreciation for the feast, members made contributions to the Canadian Red Cross for Japan earthquake relief.” According to the Pi Day website, Pi, the Greek letter ϖ, is the symbol for the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter. Pi Day is celebrated by math enthusiasts March 14. Pi = 3.1415926535. Three, one and four are key to the decimal form of the symbol. The club will celebrate Pi Approximation Day, June 22. “We will find another worthy cause at that time,” said Crerar.

Annie Linteau said the finding was that the allegations were unsupported. “The allegations were that comments made by Supt. McKinnon and Const.

Musician lends support Morning Star Staff

As a full-time student at UBC Okanagan and an accomplished musician, Lauren Treleaven rarely finds herself with much free time on her hands. But even with her full schedule, the classical flutist has still managed to organize, for the second time, the Gala for Cancer, a fundraiser for the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, taking place Saturday. “I originally chose the McMurtry-Baerg Cancer Centre because cancer quickly became a disease close to my heart after my father passed away in 2002 from lung and brain cancer,” said Treleaven. “The previous

event was two years ago and featured several local artists, and we raised $1,600. “This year will feature myself on classical flute, accompanied by Kelowna’s Elizabeth Wocks, and I hope to match $1,600 if not exceed it.” The concert features Bach’s Sonata V in e minor, Mozart’s Concerto No. 1 in G [K. 313], Image by Bozza, and Fantaisie Pastorale Hongroise by Doppler. Treleaven will graduate this year from UBCO in Kelowna with a bachelor of science, majoring in microbiology. She will then go on to study for her master’s in public health with a focus in education.

“With this degree I hope to continue to raise awareness to local communities regarding their health in order to prevent the problem before it arises,” she said. “Part of this education entails promoting regular cancer screening as well as preventative measures.” The Gala for Cancer takes place this Saturday at Emmanuel Fellowship Baptist Church, 3412-15th Ave., Vernon, at 7 p.m. Tickets are available at Nolan’s Pharmacy and the VJH Foundation office, $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Children 12 and under are free. For more information, phone 250-5453772 or send an e-mail to galaforcancer@ gmail.com.

Get ready to dance with David Morning Star Staff

Last seen in the Okanagan when he performed Vivaldi’s Four Seasons in 2006, David Greenberg is returning to Vernon to perform with the Okanagan Symphony, Sunday. Conducted by OSO musical director Rosemary Thomson, Greenberg and the symphony will serve up a toe-tapping mix of music: from Renaissance to modern times, Monteverdi to Vivaldi to Mozetich, from 16th century Venice to modern Maritime Canada. “David will be joined by local violin phenoms Alicia Venables, Colleen Venables and Rebecca Ruthven in Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins in B minor, a fitting showcase for the wonderful talent we have in the valley,” said the symphony’s general manager Scott Wilson. Renowned for both his inspiring interpretations and his Cape Breton and 18th century Scottish-style fiddling, Greenberg has also been praised as one of the best baroque violin soloists in Canada.

Oig begins tour Morning Star Staff

Musician Dan Oig is gearing up for his firstever cross-Canada tour this summer, beginning in June. To warm up for the tour, Oig, originally from Kamloops but now based in Kelowna, brings his energetic and highly interactive show to Vernon Friday night. Oig will appear at the Talkin Donkey on 32nd Street beginning at 8 p.m. “I’m super excited about the tour,” said Oig. “I live for music. Dan Oig It’s what gets everybody through the toughest times, and the happiest times. How much better is a drive in the summer time with your windows down when you’ve got your favorite tune to sing along to?” Fans can expect more interaction at Oig’s gig compared to an average acoustic show. “I like it to be an experience. It’s all about having a good time while listening to some great music,” said Oig. “I do a lot of cover songs and a lot of original songs.” Tickets for Oig’s performance are $10 and 50 per cent of the proceeds from Friday’s show will go towards stopping human trafficking.

bubble over into body language,” he said. Along with a performance with Armstrong’s Venables sisters, and Kelowna’s Ruthven, Greenberg plans to perform what he calls, “strange and wonderful composers you’ve never heard of from hundreds of years ago: Oswald, Rebel, Mackintosh, Merula, Gow. And perhaps a few you have heard of: Monteverdi, Purcell, Vivaldi.” Originally from Maryland, Greenberg studied baroque violin at Indiana University’s Early Music Institute and moved to Canada in 1988 to join the Toronto-based baroque orchestra Tafelmusik. He became a Canadian citizen in the 1990s and has lived in Halifax since 2000. Greenberg has cofounded several music ensembles, including the Medieval Quintet, Puirt A Baroque, Ferintosh, Tempest Baroque Ensemble, and Vortex 3. Currently, he performs mainly with

R&B favourites return DVOIRA YANOVSKY Special to The Morning Star

High octane R&B favourites The Salmon Armenians return to the Vernon Jazz Club Saturday. Winner of the Okanagan Music Awards Best Blues Band for 2007, the nine-member group can’t wait to unleash their energetic music on the fans. “We will be playing our usual mix of R&B, funk, and soul from our favourite music era – the ‘60s and ‘70s,” said band leader Lody Kieken. “We all love the Motown, Memphis, New Orleans sound with horns and a tight rhythm section.” The gig will also feature new originals from just released CD Snow Country Sessions, including reggae flavoured Rhythm of the World by drummer Larry Keats, and trombone player Rich Thorne’s tune In the Mirror, dealing with our consumer society. With at least nine appearances at the club, the band keeps coming back for more. “The principal thing that appeals to us is the attentive and supportive audience. It’s a magical cooperative between band and audience which makes VJC events so special to us,” explained Kieken. Hammond organist Kieken, owner of Acorn Music in Salmon Arm, formed the band in 1997. Chair of the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival, Kieken loves playing R&B. “R&B has such a special place in most people’s hearts and I believe it’s due to the

good feelings it evokes,” said Kieken. The centrepiece of any Salmon Armenian performance is their signature horn section, including Doug Sonju and Mike Scharf on saxophones, and Rich Thorne on trombone and trumpet. Since the early ‘70s, Sonju has been the principal clarinettist with the Okanagan Symphony, also playing jazz and commercial rock before adding blues to his repertoire. Sonju has also performed with his own band at the VJC. Hometown boy Scharf grew up in Salmon Arm, playing sax in jazz bands, combos, and fusion groups, including Electric Lady Land and Liquid Chicken. He works part time as a firefighter for BC Forest Service. Thorne started playing trombone in Grade 5, joined his first jazz combo in Grade 9, and was the principal trombone in the prestigious University of Idaho Symphony. Retired from teaching, Thorne took on the challenging job of arranging and writing the band’s horn charts. Debbie Reid, one of the band’s two vocalists, has sung in various groups, including Summer Wages

and Lilies of the West. Reid is best known for her work with The Phantoms, Salmon Arm’s most versatile party band. Vocalist Del Hunter has been singing professionally since 1973. She’s performed for the past 17 years with husband Keith Hunter in the duo Steppin’ Out. Drummer “Slammin’ Salmon” Keats is an original member of The Salmon Armenians. Keats shares his music as a music therapist, promoting wellness for children and adults facing challenges. Bassist Murray Holmes played professionally in Vancouver for eight years with groups like Duster and Ambush. He also played for 11 years in the Thompson-Okanagan area with Blacksmith. Guitarist Peter Clark has performed professionally for the last 35 years, performing in country, jazz, pop, and Celtic genres.

Mail-in ballots chosen to determine fate of HST TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. government has chosen the quickest, cheapest way of deciding whether to scrap the harmonized sales tax, says Attorney General Barry Penner. Penner said the Liberal cabinet is moving ahead with a mail-in vote on the HST with a target date of June 24. Premier Christy Clark campaigned for the leadership on an early vote, and the government expects to save more than half of the $30 million cost of an in-person vote. “Moving to a mailin ballot is expected to save taxpayers $18 million and address potential voter fatigue” with a federal election now expected in May, Penner said.

PUZZLE NO. 203

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Something close to your heart that you want badly but feel will never be yours could inch a bit closer. Whatever it is, this may be the first hope that it could be yours.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Listen attentively when in a conversation with someone whose ideas and thoughts you admire. You could learn about some new ways to achieve an objective you strongly desire. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You should take care not to commit yourself to thinking that has proven to be unproductive. Start experimenting with some new techniques or methods to unlock a project that you’ve been barred from. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) A frustrating condition concerning your work is likely to transform in a way that could be extremely favorable to you. Hang in there, even if you don’t see hope right away. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Taking the time to get in touch with some old friends could prove to be very rewarding. Information that you share with chums will renew your camaraderie and greatly help everyone.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Just because something was too tough for another to acquire doesn’t mean that you are destined to fail as well. Believe that you can succeed in ways that they couldn’t, and you’ll win.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A new item you purchase for your home is likely to

provide you with longlasting joy. Because you’ll not tire of it, it is destined to become a centerpiece. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) A new idea that you already feel strongly about is likely to take on even more significance. It will be enough to draw a number of supporters to your cause.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It is likely that your inner feelings of self-worth will provide you with strong impetus to strive for even grander goals. Go ahead -- load, lock and fire your best shot. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Your nobler qualities will be quite prominent and are likely to bring much admiration from your peers. You’ll find that when you give of yourself, they’ll automatically give back in return. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) There is little reason to be satisfied with your present earnings when you know you can do better. Take measures as soon as you can to find ways to improve your lot in life.

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.

Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Sherlock Holmes said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I never guess. It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data.â&#x20AC;? Bridge players try not to guess, but there are deals in which you just have to guess well to make your contract. This is one of them. How would you plan the play in three notrump and in four spades? Against either contract, West leads the club ďŹ ve, East winning with his ace and returning the jack. In the auction, North used a transfer bid, then jumped to three no-trump to indicate exactly ďŹ ve spades with game values. It was tempting for you to pass because both spades and no-trump might have won only nine tricks. But it was â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? to correct

to four spades. In three no-trump, you should duck the second club. West will overtake with his queen and return a club to your king, East discarding a heart. With only eight top tricks (ďŹ ve spades, two hearts and one club), you have to guess whether to play a diamond, which works perfectly when East has the ace, but is a disaster here; or to take the heart ďŹ nesse. In four spades, you must win the second club and really guess well. If West has the diamond jack and East the heart queen, you can afford to draw one round of trumps, but then must play a diamond to dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 10. In contrast, if those red-suit honors are

Dr. Kevin Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Shea

the other way around, you can draw trumps, take the winning heart ďŹ nesse, and concede only one diamond and two clubs. There really is no way to know which route to take. Even Sherlock Holmes would have had to guess.

Sports B Old foes reacquainted in final EDITOR: Kevin MitchellssSPORTS VERNONMORNINGSTARCOM

GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

They face each other just twice in a regular season, yet the Vernon Vipers and Powell River Kings probably know one another better than most siblings. Battling one another in the Fred Page Cup finals for the last two years tends to have that effect. It will happen all over again as the two-time defending national champion Vipers and regular-season champion Kings tangle in the best-of-seven championship series, with Games 1 and 2 going Friday and Saturday night respectively at Hap Parker Arena on the Sunshine Coast. Vernon, who won the last two Fred Page series 4-2 and 4-3 respectively, will host Games 3 and 4, Monday and Tuesday night at Wesbild Centre. Having won the league with a shining 46-9-3-2 record, 12 points ahead of the second-place Vipers (36-11-4-9), the more experienced Kings could arguably be the favourites in this series. Head coach Kent Lewis has assembled a big, physical squad, backstopped by Michael Garteig, who led the league with seven shutouts and helped his team set a new BCHL record for fewest goals against (115). The Prince George product leads the post-season with a 1.97 goals against average, and his .923 save percentage is second overall. Powell Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bruising blueline, led by 6-foot-5, 215pound Justin Dasilva, is surprisingly mobile, while their forward corps, headlined by gritty captain Chad Niddery and play-making Matt Garbowsky, will be a handful for the Vernon defence. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very good hockey team. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been the cream of the crop in the league, ranked No. 2 in the country and for good reason,â&#x20AC;? Vernon head coach Mark Ferner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got big, strong defence and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to penetrate that. They got good goaltending...and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got guys that can hurt you offensively.â&#x20AC;? The Kings are also a much older team than the Vipers, with just one 1993-born player to Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s six. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think, before the season started, many people thought we would be in this situation. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be an uphill battle, no question, but letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just hope history repeats itself,â&#x20AC;? said Ferner. Yet every year, Ferner and assistant coach Jason Williamson stir the Kool-Aid, and every year his players drink it, then ask for a second helping. While they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t possess the offensive punch they exhibited last season, the Snakes do have depth in scoring, with eight players firing 10 or more goals in the regular season. Captain David Robinson topped the list with 32 strikes. In the playoffs, second-year forward Pat McGillis leads the Snakes with 5-8-13 in 12 games, and Dylan Walchuk, who led the Vipers with 56 regular-season points, has 8-4-12. Walchukâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensational four-goal performance Friday night helped Vernon eliminate the Salmon Arm SilverBacks in Game 6 of the Interior finals and earned him BCHL Player of the Week honours. The Vipers are also getting some timely secondary scoring from rookies Marcus Basara (3-6-9) and Trevor

Walchuk has been around for Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last two championship drives and says the culture set by the coaching staff, combined with veteran leadership, is what gives them success. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family in there. We work together and get through adversity. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not negative, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re positive in the room and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what gets us through,â&#x20AC;? said Walchuk. Added Ferner: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The credit has to be given to the players, in particular the veteran players and older players. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been here, they understand what the expectations are and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made the young players right off the hop. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got two 20-year-olds in Malcolm Lyles and Kyle Murphy and they came in and just accepted how we were going to play.â&#x20AC;? With Max Mowat and Philip Patenaude both on the injured reserve, the Vipers have rolled with just five d-men since Game 2 of the Interior finals. Netminder Kirby Halcrow has been Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s starter since taking over from Blake Voth in Game 2 of the first round, posting a 2.51 goals against and .890 save percentage.

First time was a charm for the Osoyoos Coyotes. The expansion Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club claimed its first playoff championship banner in its first attempt with a 7-1 win over the host Castlegar Rebels in Game 6 Saturday night. Steve Sasyniuk scored 35 seconds into the game on a breakaway, giving the Coyotes a lead they would never relinquish. Thierry Martine, Brock Anderson and Shane Hanna added first-period tallies, the latter coming with 10 seconds remaining in the frame. Hanna, C.J. Kort and Mark Miller also tallied for Osoyoos in front of 1,100 fans. Arthur Andrews answered for Castlegar in the third period, breaking netminder Kyle Lasloâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shutout bid. The Coyotes scored four powerplay goals against a frustrated Rebels squad, while Laslo made 27 saves to collect the win. Alex Ross and Cole Buckley shared duties in goal for the Rebels.

Graduating forward Erik Wentzel had one assist in his junior hockey finale, while Darren Tarasoff and Northern Michigan-bound Ryan Aynsley also saw their Rebels careers come to a close. The Coyotes became the fourth KIJHL expansion team to win a championship in their inaugural season. Castlegar was the first, in 1977. For the Rebels, it was their first trip to a league final in 15 years. Osoyoos, who lost only twice in regulation during the KIJHLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 50-game regular season, advances to the B.C. Junior B championship, the Cyclone Taylor Cup, which begins this Thursday in Fernie. They face the PIJHL Richmond Sockeyes in their opener, followed by a Friday tilt against the host Fernie Ghostriders. Osoyoos ends the fourteam round-robin Saturday against the VIJHL Peninsula Panthers.

Sports Genoway into Frozen Four Morning Star Staff

Vernon Viper grad Chay Genoway has made it to the Frozen Four of the NCAA Division 1 Men’s Hockey Tournament. The North Dakota Fighting Sioux captain recorded five assists in a pair of regional Chay Genoway showdowns last weekend. He had three helpers as the Sioux pummeled the Denver Pioneers 6-1 in a Midwest Regional playoff Sunday in Green Bay, Wis.

Carol Skidmore shows her 400-game form at Lincoln Lanes. She rolled a 401 in the Tuesday 7-9 League.

Skidmore pockets 401 KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Vernon’s Carol Skidmore literally did the shake, rattle and roll for a career-first 400 bowling game at Lincoln Lanes. The fun-loving great grandmother needed to knock down the left corner pin with her final ball to get past 399 in the Tuesday 7-9 league. It took her a while to actually throw the ball, but she nailed the shot and finished at 401, bringing the house down in the process. “Seven strikes in a row and a 300, that’s all I wanted,” smiled Skidmore, a former Youth Bowling Council coach. “I looked up and saw the 399 and I was shaking so bad, and everybody was quiet, you could hear a pin drop. “I said to my son, Lyle, ‘I can’t throw this ball. I’m shaking so bad. I need a drink of water.’ He said, ‘You can do it mom.’ I got up there and everything was kind of blurry, and I hit my spot and got it and everybody started cheering. It was pretty exciting. It took me 50 years go get it.” Skidmore bowled 10 years in Medicine Hat before moving to Vernon, where she has rolled fivepin the last 40 years, scoring lots of 300 games and

800 series but never venturing too close to 400. A mother of three who has 10 grandchildren and seven great grandchildren, Skidmore opened her series with a 222 and finished with a 325, for a sizzling 948. “After it (401) was all over, I got congratulations from everybody. It was the most hugs I’ve ever got.” Her Lincoln Loonies teammates, including her son Lyle, Donna Desmarais, Ernie Mykituik and Rick Ganzeveld, witnessed the big game. “I love my bowling,” said Skidmore, who worked several years at the Vernon Veterinary Clinic and the old Vernon Daily News before her retirement. “It’s good exercise and I love to socialize.” Skidmore, who also plays in the Wednesday Golden Age Club league, took a 191 average into her 401 game which earned her gift certificates from several businesses in town. Carol, who also enjoys knitting and playing cards, is the first woman to join the Lincoln 400 Club this year. She joins Keith Hoggard, Kyle Beadman, Drew Soroka and Kane Ackeral, all of whom qualify for the provincial 400 tournament next fall in Vancouver.

Symonds king of Okanagan Campus Morning Star Staff

Wet, snowy weather wasn’t enough to stop Penticton’s Jeff Symonds from claiming first overall at the ninth annual Okanagan College Campusto-Campus Half Marathon Sunday morning in Kelowna. Symonds finished the 21.1-kilometre course in one hour, 15 minutes and 42 seconds, more than a minute ahead of runner-up Graham Hood of Kelowna. Rossland’s Dallas Cain was third overall. Taking the women’s title, and placing fifth overall, was Kelowna’s Keddi-Anne Sherbino (1:21:41). The top local finisher was Coldstream’s Cameron Egan, who was sixth in 1:24:05. Vernon’s Peter Baumeister (1:24:23) finished seventh, Bill Mah (1:30:53) was 11th, Philip Caruthers (1:32:32) was 16th and Mary Edgar, the top local female finisher, rounded out the top-20 in 1:34:11. Vernon’s Jennifer Bond (1:35:46), 24th overall, was the third woman to cross the line. In the 10-km race, Kelowna runners swept the podium in the men’s and women’s divisions. Jonathan Little (37:12), Yannick Letailleur (38:10)

6-0 in first-round play Saturday night. The Sioux, who topped the WCHA Conference at 21-6-1, will meet the Michigan Wolverines in national semifinal play April 7 in St. Paul, Minn. The Minnesota-Duluth Bulldogs and Notre Dame Fighting Irish will tangle in the other semi. The championship game goes April 9 in St. Paul. Other Viper alumni didn’t fair so well in the NCAA tourney. Kyle Bigos and Mike Collins, both with the Merrimack Warriors, bowed 4-3 in overtime to the Fighting Irish Saturday night in Manchester, N.H. Cole Ikkala’s Union Dutchmen fell 2-0 to the Bulldogs in their firstround game in Bridgeport, Conn.

Baryla swings for charity Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Chris Baryla had already pledged $1,000 to the Canadian Red Cross in support of the relief efforts in Japan. He nearly doubled his charitable donation after he finished tied for 44th with a 2-under par 282 (68-71-76-67) at the Nationwide Tour’s Chitimacha Louisiana Open Sunday. Baryla, who jumped more than 20 places up the leaderboard in the final round, added half his winnings to his original donation. “I believe it’s important to use my position as a professional athlete to give back,” Baryla told Canadian Press. “While we might be thousands of miles away, this terrible tragedy has affected us all and I encourage everyone to do what

they can to support the people of Japan.” The 28-year-old, who holds a PGA Tour card, was relegated to the Nationwide Tour after

missing the cut in all six events he’s entered this season. Baryla, a twotime B.C. junior champion, has been a pro since 2003.

Thompson takes RBC award Morning Star Staff

It will barely put a dent in his tuition fees when he joins the Yale Bulldogs next season, but Adam Thompson is happy just to be noticed for his scholastic endevours. The veteran Vernon Viper blueliner was selected as the B.C. Hockey League’s recipient of the $1,000 RBC Junior A Scholarship. This also makes him eligible for RBC’s national $5,000 scholarship, which will be handed out to a player from one of Canada’s 10 junior A hockey leagues. “Anything I can get, I’ll be happy with it,” grinned Thompson, who, along with Stevie Weinstein, is the longest-tenured Viper on the current roster. Thompson graduated high school with a 3.95 GPA and scored a 1,960 on his SAT exam, well above the 1,800 Ivy League schools require for entrance. He also took several courses at Okanagan College during his stint with the Vipers. “I was pretty happy to get that kind of recognition for the effort I put in,” said Thompson, 20. “I worked hard in those college classes; it’s nice to see that the time put into those essays has paid off in more ways than one.” Said Vipers’ owner Duncan Wray: “When I heard of Adam’s scholarship award, I couldn’t have been happier. He’s a great kid who works hard. “Going to a school like Yale shows that he’s applied himself to his academics and just completing and submitting the extensive application shows his level of commitment. To be the sole BCHL player to win this award is a real feather in his cap.” Thompson will not only get a top-flight education at Yale, the hockey program is also proving successful. The Bulldogs finished atop the ECAC Conference this season, but were knocked out of the NCAA Division 1 Tournament in the regional finals on Saturday. Bulldogs’ head coach Keith Allain was the bench boss for the U.S. team at the world juniors in Buffalo.

Krause rolls national silver Morning Star Staff

Vernon’s Ashley Krause was determined to medal at the National Youth Challenge Fivepin Bowling Tournament last weekend in Regina. And she did. The 18-year-old Lincoln Lanes bowler helped Team B.C. claim silver at the scratch tournament, falling 1,148-1,109 to Manitoba in the goldmedal game. B.C. led by 10 pins after the ninth frame, but several punched headpins allowed the Manitoba team to pull the comeback. Krause, who rolled near to her 219 average throughout the tournament, was the first competitor to roll a 300-game, counting a 306 against Alberta on opening day. Teammate Brittany Dacosta of Langley led the tournament with a stellar 260 average and was awarded a $1,000 scholarship as a result. Team B.C. finished second after the 11-team round-robin, and advanced to the final with a win over third-place Saskatchewan in a stepladder format playoff. They then beat Manitoba, who, as the first-place team, had to lose twice to be eliminated. Krause will follow up the thrill of the bowling nationals by going to Europe on a soccer tour in July. Her dad, Ron, coaches the U18 girls team. She is a striker.

Rockets stake early series lead Morning Star Staff

The Kelowna Rockets looked to put a stranglehold on the host Prince George Cougars in Game 3 of their best-of-seven WHL Western Conference quarterfinal series Tuesday night at the CN Centre. The Rockets raced out to a 2-0 series lead after Saturday’s 7-4 win in Game 2 at Prospera Place. The game, however, was closer than the score indicated as the Cougars led 4-3 heading into the third period. Vernon’s James Dobrowolski fired the opening goal for Prince George. A four-goal rally by the Rockets sealed the win, with Cody Chikie earning the winner on a powerplay 7:04 into the final frame. Shane McColgan chipped in with three assists. The Rockets left for Prince George on Sunday and practiced on Monday in preparation for the two northern games, with Game 4 tonight at the CN Centre. "It's going to be a tough task," said Rockets’ assistant coach Dan Lambert. "They have a good hockey team." If necessary, Game 5 would go Friday in Kelowna, followedy by Game 6 Sunday in Prince George and a potential Game 7 Tuesday at Prospera.

Trust at top of federal election campaign JEFF NAGEL Black Press

Trust will be the dominant theme of the federal election campaign now underway, predicts a veteran B.C. political observer. SFU political scientist Patrick Smith said the Conservatives will argue only they can be counted on to carefully steer the economy through a still-fragile recovery and assure stability. Opposition parties, meanwhile, will contend Canadians shouldn’t trust the Tories – particularly so far as to give them a majority – because they tried to hide the full costs of the government’s crime-fighting agenda and F-35 fighter jet purchases. The minority government fell on a nonconfidence motion Friday when MPs voted 156-145 to find the Tories in contempt of Parliament. Election day will be May 2. “We will hear a lot about U.S.-style megaprisons and the whole

idea that you can’t trust their numbers,” Smith said. “Lines like ‘Do you want fighter jets to fly around the Arctic or get all seniors out of poverty in Canada?’” Conservatives will play the economic card, he said, painting New Democrats and Liberals as blocking a budget that was poised to aid seniors in order to spark an election. Smith said he believes Prime Minister Stephen Harper decided to trigger the election by tabling a budget carefully calculated so other parties couldn’t support it. “More than any party, the Conservatives wanted this election,” he said. “I think they looked at the polls and said ‘We’re at 39 per cent – we can grow to 42 per cent and get a majority.’” Fears will be stoked about what Harper would do with a majority, he said, and, conversely, the spectre of the other parties form-

Province dims lights for Earth JEFF NAGEL Black Press

B.C. cut electricity consumption by 1.8 per cent during Earth Hour Saturday night. B.C. Hydro officials said they were pleased by the response to the hour of conservation for climate change awareness, now in its fourth year here. Province-wide, 117 megawatt hours of electricity were saved as many residents switched off lights, TVs and other appliances and instead lit candles or went for a walk. The reduction was nearly twice as much as in 2010, when a 1.04 per cent cut was measured, and equivalent to turning off 7.8 million 15-watt compact fluorescent bulbs. “We encourage our customers to think about how to live a little bit of Earth Hour every day,” said Lisa Coltart, B.C. Hydro’s executive director of Power Smart and customer care. Residents in various cities took to Twitter to complain of “dismal” Earth Hour participation in their neighbourhoods. Others argued the exercise is misguided, particularly in B.C., because burning candles releases more carbon that hydroelectric power. Power conservation is important for the province, as it’s a key plank in B.C. Hydro’s plan to keep pace with rising demand. Even so, the Crown corporation has applied for rate increases of as much as 50 per cent over the three years to fund $6 billion worth of infrastructure upgrades and expand its green energy supply. Sixty minutes of Earth Hour-style conservation every day would save enough electricity to power 4,000 homes for an entire year, Coltart said.

Smith said Tory MP Nina Grewal (Fleetwood-Port Kells) is “pretty low profile” and and Dona Cadman (Surrey North) could also be vulnerable. “Just as the Conservatives are thinking we can pick up Esquimalt, there will be people in the New Democrat and Liberal war rooms thinking, ‘We can take this from the Conservatives.’” Some seats will likely change hands in B.C., but Smith said at this point he’d have to bet

on another minority government. “The Conservatives have a shot at the majority,” he said. “It’s doable. But everything has to break their way.”

Since opening in 2000, the Allan Brooks Nature Centre has been the place to go to learn about the environment, to enjoy nature, spot the resident marmots, see bees at work and explore a “bear’s den.” But in 1996, the former Vernon Upper Air Weather Station was derelict and heavily vandalized. Thanks to a small group of visionary residents, the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Society was founded to promote the enjoyment, understanding and stewardship of the North Okanagan’s diverse natural environment. Named for famed local wildlife artist Allan Brooks, the centre is open May through October, welcoming school groups, tourists and locals who come up to take advantage of the 360-degree view of the valley, check out the displays and perhaps enjoy an al fresco meal on the picnic tables dotted around the property. “We have a valley-wide reputation as a leader in environmental education and the promotion of sustainable resource management,” said Mel Maglio, volunteer and fundraising chairman at the centre. “In all its programs and undertakings, the Allan Brooks Nature Centre strives to educate and inform individuals that we need to change our way of life to minimize our impact on the natural world and to use our resources wisely.” Centre manager Mary Jong said preparations are under way for this year’s opening. “We’re busy getting ready and have set up our birds of prey display and developed a new display with the Cottonwood Riparian System,” she said. “It’s such a fun place to work, and we love getting the little kids up here, as they’re always so excited to check everything out. “And we couldn’t do it without volunteers: last year, we probably had more than 5,000 volunteer hours.” As a non-profit society, fundraising is crucial to the centre’s operations.

A resident marmot enjoys the spring sunshine at the Allan Brooks Nature Centre, which holds its annual fundraising dinner and auction April 8 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge. its biggest event of the year is the Allan Brooks Nature Centre Annual Fundraising Dinner and Auction April 8 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge, with all proceeds benefiting the centre. “This is our major fundraiser and a significant portion of our annual revenue is raised at this event,” said Maglio. “Funds raised help with our school programs, interpretive displays and day-to-day operations. “We receive no government funding and the centre is supported by its members, volunteers, donors and admission fees.” Maglio said the event promises to be an elegant evening that includes a buffet dinner, live and silent auctions, with local auctioneer Kevin Rothwell, live entertainment, and the whole thing running smoothly thanks to master of ceremonies Mike Roberts, with CHBC. “And we’re thrilled that Don Kassa and Priscilla have donated Okanagan wines for each table,” he said. Organizers are still in the process of rounding up items for the auctions: the silent auction will consist of items valued from $25, while the live auction will be those with a higher profile. Some of the items

available for bidding on include an original Robert Bateman print, a Tonny Moser print, golf passes and packages, three nights’ accommodation at Silver Star or four at Galiano Island, a Joan Heriot print, a gourmet three-course dinner prepared in your home by personal chef David Colombe, jewellery from Hagemann Jewellers, and dinner at Ricardo’s Mediterranean Kitchen. “Anyone who would like to donate an auction item is welcome to,” said Jong, adding that donors are always acknowledged unless they wish to remain anonymous. “We get a lot of the same businesses every year donating, and they are always very generous.” Tickets to the dinner and auction are $65 per person, with a $25 charitable donation receipt provided for each ticket purchased. “We want to encourage people to buy tables of eight for $520 per table, which would provide a $200 tax receipt for the table,” said Maglio. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller at 250-549-SHOW (7469) or online at www.ticketseller.ca. For more information about the centre, see www.abnc.ca.

June Cleaver would love it

’ve spent time this week sewing fancy bib aprons for my daughter and granddaughters. Who would have thought something as old-fashioned as aprons would make a comeback, not that they’re not useful or anything; it’s just that when I was requested to make them, it Cathi Litzenberger came as a surprise to me. I mean, since my mother and grandmother’s day, when aprons were always worn, they seem to be almost extinct from everyday use, except maybe for an occasional barbecue apron. So here we are again with a generation of young women who value their clothes and see the usefulness of using an apron when cooking or baking. I am impressed! Since it’s still spring break in our school

30 including

district, I decided to offer a couple of easy recipes for the kids to make this week. The first is a cookie bar, the second a pizza cookie and both use sweetened condensed milk. Kids may need a little help with the oven, so put on your aprons and get cracking making these delicious sweet treats. Double the Magic Cookie Bars 2 cups graham wafer crumbs 3/4 cup butter, melted 2 cans (300 ml each) regular or low fat sweetened condensed milk 1-1/3 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1-1/3 cups butterscotch chips 1-1/3 cups toffee bits 1-1/3 cups sweetened flaked coconut 1-1/3 cups miniature marshmallows 1-1/3 cups chopped nuts of choice Combine graham crumbs with butter; press evenly onto parchment-lined 13 x 9-inch baking pan. Pour 1 can sweetened condensed milk evenly over crumbs. Sprinkle with toppings; press down firmly.

Pour second can of condensed milk overtop. Bake in preheated oven at 350 F (180 C) for 40 to 45 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool thoroughly and cut into bars. Note: for glass dish, bake at 325 F. Cookie Pizza 1 roll (18 oz.) refrigerated sugarcookie dough 2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips 1 can (300 ml) sweetened condensed milk 2 cups M&M’s or Smarties 2 cups miniature marshmallows 1/2 cup peanuts Press cookie dough into 2 ungreased 12-inch pizza pans. Bake as per pkg. directions, 10 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven. Melt chocolate chips with condensed milk. Spread over crusts. Sprinkle with M&M’s (or Smarties), marshmallows and nuts. Bake in preheated oven at 375 F (190 C) oven 4 minutes or until marshmallows are lightly toasted. Cool. Cut into wedges.

Tax News

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block The Disability tax credit is an amount which partially compensates disabled taxpayers for the extra expenses incurred as a result of their disability. For 2010 the amount is $7239 for an adult and is a non-refundable tax credit which is used to reduce tax payable. A larger credit is available for a dependant child under 18. A tip about this credit is that it can be transferred to a parent, grandparent, spouse or anyone else that has claimed the disabled person on their tax return as a dependant. You must have a T2201 (Disability Tax Credit Certificate) completed by your doctor. The Canada Revenue Agency will use this completed form to determine if you qualify for the credit. This credit can be retroactive to the date the doctor states the disability began within a tenyear period. If you think you qualify or have a dependant who qualifies then come in and see our tax specialists who will go over the form and explain things.

Collecting rain for a lush garden This week’s column is written by Judy Baumbrough on behalf of the Communities in Bloom Committee. esidents of the Okanagan Valley are increasingly aware that we can no longer view our water supply as an unlimited, cheap resource that we take for granted. As well, recent flooding events in Australia and elsewhere have forced us to recognize that water can have a destructive force. However, there are environmentally-friendly and positive approaches that can be implemented by individual homeowners to help reduce and treat storm-water runoff, increase wildlife habitat and beautify yards. One of these approaches is the rain garden. The idea of rain gardens started Fred Lyall in the state of Maryland in the late ‘80s and has expanded into one of the fastest growing areas of interest in home landscape. Rain gardens provide the homeowner with the opportunity to have a beautiful, low-maintenance landscape that helps manage runoff as well as increase biodiversity. By collecting and using the rainwater and snow melt that would otherwise run off one’s yard, rain gardens allow the homeowner to have a beautiful landscape with less watering. The rain garden is a planted depression that is designed to use excess rainwater run-off from impervious surfaces (such as your roof and driveway). Rain gardens optimize the value of any rain that falls and reduce peak storm flows, which helps to reduce stream bank erosion and lower the risk for local flooding. Mown turf or grass areas are not as effective at soaking up and trapping excess run-off or in dealing with pollutants or contaminants in the water. Rain gardens are largely composed of flowering perennials and grasses, together with scattered shrubs – an ideal mix for increasing the wildlife and habitat value of your

The construction of a rain garden is relatively straightforward and simply involves lowering the level of the ground so that a rain-collecting basin is formed. Typically, the depth of a rain garden is 10-20 cm with gently sloping sides. The size of the rain garden is determined by the size of the drainage area and your soil type. The soil in the rain garden is ideally 50-60 per cent sand, 20-30 per cent topsoil, and 20-30 per cent compost. This mix Safety is our highest priority.

Paddlers get ready to take to the water Morning Star Staff

An exciting season of paddling awaits the local dragon boat community. Vernon Rowing and Paddling Centre has been offering programs on Swan Lake for 13 years, and 2011 promises huge growth for its dragon boat program. VRPC manager Lisa George said thanks to the generous support of the City of Vernon, and Go Rowing and Paddling Association of Canada, an additional dragon boat and new lifejackets and paddles will be arriving at the centre in the spring. “The timing for the arrival of this new equipment is perfect, demand for our programs are at a record high, and this allows me to build on the enormous paddling potential of our centre,” she said. “The local community has certainly discovered that rowing and paddling on Swan Lake is the perfect fit for water lovers. Rich in bird life, tranquil, breathtakingly beautiful and serene, Swan Lake is a little jewel in Vernon.” Dragon boating

is perfectly suited to all ages and abilities. Each team consists of up to 25 paddlers and the sport is renowned for creating teams with strong spirit and a sense of fun. It is ideal for school paddling sessions that can be themed to include the environment and history, competitive teams can focus towards training for festivals, and corporate teams have access to team building. Also, for the first time, Vernon is putting together a mixed dragon boat team to participate in the 2011 BC Seniors Games in Nelson in August. “We paddle from May to mid-September, all equipment and coaching is provided and have a centre that offers perfect access to the water,” said George. Breast cancer survivor teams have become synonymous with dragon boating. Groundbreaking research by Dr. Don McKenzie, a sports medicine physician at UBC, proved that breast cancer survivors avoided associated medical complications through the repetitive upperbody exercise of dragon

boat paddling. Survivor teams are now established in communities world-wide, including the Buoyant Buddies in Vernon. Formed in 2003, the team has competed at three International Dragon Boat Festivals and numerous local events. “Being a breast cancer survivor and taking up a sport like paddling can feel like a very daunting idea at first, but you soon learn that the sport is extremely good exercise and fun,” said team manager Jennifer Drozda. “There is a great feeling of camaraderie within the team and we’re always there for each other.” Suzann Worth, coach of Vernon’s Dragon Riders, said her team is looking forward to the new season. “Dragon Riders has an incredible team who has been competing for over five years and look forward to the coming season. Dragon boating is a great sport for all skill levels. It gets people out and having fun while getting a great workout. Each season brings new opportunities and challenges

and we are always looking for new faces. For more information, see www.vernonrow ingandpaddling. com or come to the free open house May 14 from 10 a.m. to noon and see what all the fun is about.
