Orchard search initiated ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
An anthropologist and coroner from the Lower Mainland arrive in the North Okanagan today to assist RCMP following the discovery of human remains in a Vernon orchard. The remains were discovered April 1 shortly after 5:30 p.m. in the 6000 block of Pleasant Valley Road by a man doing excavation work for the property’s owner. “The area is protected, our general investigation section is taking the lead and working with the coroner,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “We’ll be doing a further search of the property to see if more remains can be found within the area.” Molendyk confirmed that one bone was found, and that the bone was part of the human skeletal system. However, at the request of investigators, Molendyk would not say what type of bone was found. “I’ve been asked not to give that information out and I will respect the wishes of the investigators,” he said. The bone was discovered in an orchard that’s been around the North Okanagan for

An anthropologist is en route to continue the investigation into the discovery of human remains at an orchard on Pleasant Valley Road. many years, and work was being done to add more trees to the property. The area where it was found, said Molendyk, is believed to be about an acre in size. “It’s definitely not fresh, that is it hasn’t been put there in the last month or probably even the last year,” said Molendyk of the bone. “It’s older than that but we need to have something like that dealt with by profes-
sionals.” The anthropologist will use his or her expertise and experience in dating bones to try and determine how long the bone has been in the ground. Molendyk stated it’s simply too early in the investigation to start searching through police missing person’s files. “The first thing we have to do is try and put an age to the bone and determine how long it’s been there,” he said.
“That’s done through scientific methods. After we determine the age, or how long it’s been there, we can start looking at missing files from around that time.” There is also the possibility the bone could be more than 100 years old. “The anthropologist will determine the origins,” said Molendyk. “This is going to take some time. It’s not going to happen overnight. There are many possibilities here.”
Politician makes pitch for sports facility RICHARD ROLKE
“It’s a bad decision,” said Foster, who also hopes to raise the issue Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric with Premier Christy Clark. Foster hopes high“He (McRae) sympathizes level support will keep with the situation. Whether a sports complex on he will get involved or not, I track. don’t know.” Foster met Monday Foster doesn’t want the with Agriculture government to overturn the Minister Don decision of the ALC, which is McRae to discuss the independent, but he believes Agricultural Land there is a need for the ruling Commission denying to be revisited.

“Give the proponent an opportunity to address the concerns.” As part of its ruling, the ALC stated the site has good agricultural capability. “The commission was concerned the use of the land for recreational purposes would signal to Agricultural Land Reserve landowners and the wider community that good capability farm land is not being protected for future farm uses,” says the report. However, Foster disagrees with the commission’s findings. “It’s not good agricultural land. It’s never been used for agriculture
and it’s been owned by the college for years so it was never intended for agriculture,” he said. Foster doesn’t believe that using the property for a sports complex would undermine the mandate of the Agricultural Land Reserve. “I want the ALC to protect agricultural land. I don’t want to eat food from other places if I don’t have to, but this is not agricultural land,” he said. “Beyond protecting land within an arbitrary line, the greater community good must be looked at. The soil conditions were not looked at. There is no science to it (deci-
sion).” The ALC also stated that without information on current facilities and future expansion areas, it was difficult to place the need for the sports complex in context. But Foster insists the need for a regulation-sized track and other facilities is well established in Greater Vernon. “The well-being of the broader community has to be taken into account in these decisions,” he said. “All of the opportunities for football, track, the college and drawing people to the area are all good for the community.”

News Fire forces temporary business closure RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Itâ€™s unknown when an Armstrong business could resume production after a fire and explosion. Pinnacle Pellet has ceased activities at its Pleasant Valley Road location so the impact of Saturdayâ€™s blaze on the equipment and building can be assessed. â€œIt looks like it could be at least a week,â€? said Jamie Collis, manager, when asked about reopening. â€œWeâ€™ve had contractors in already to look at what it will take (for repairs).â€? The plant, which manufactures wood pellets for a variety of uses, employs 20 people. â€œSome of the guys are in doing clean-up and fire watch,â€? said Collis. While much of the building is steel frame, the wood roof sustained significant damage. A torrent of water from firefightersâ€™ hoses got into electrical systems. Water flowed into the lower level, which contains a lot of equipment. â€œTens of thousands of gallons of water in the basement and the pumps ran all day Sunday,â€? said Gord Noble, a captain with the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Fire Department. Firefighters responded to reports of an explosion at about 9:35 p.m. Saturday. â€œIt lifted lots of heavy crates,â€? said Alastair Crick, deputy fire chief. Arriving on scene, crews found flames coming off the road and heavy smoke. â€œWe hit the fire with lines pretty quick,â€?

Pinnacle Pellet has ceased activities at its Pleasant Valley Road location while assessment of damage takes place following a fire that broke out Saturday in the building. said Noble. â€œWe felt that the roof was compromised so we didnâ€™t believe it was safe to have anyone in the building.â€? Firefighters from BX-Swan Lake and Enderby were brought in to provide assistance.
Determining the cause of the fire has been challenging. â€œThe roof structure above the mill is in bad shape so itâ€™s unsafe to occupy the building,â€? said Noble. â€œWe need a crane to come in to get the roof off.â€?
Once that occurs, investigators will be able to get a better look at machinery to try and pinpoint the cause. Two employees were in the plant at the time of the fire. â€œNo one was injured thank God,â€? said Collis.
Victim identified in fatal Swan Lake collision ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
The Vernon man who died in an accident on Highway 97 Sunday has been identified as Howard Nixon Horning, 82. Police report Horning was a passenger in the Ford minivan driven by his wife when she attempted to turn left onto Highland Road, near Swan Lake Nurseryland. The vehicle was struck by a southbound Mazda shortly before 10 a.m. Sunday. â€œThe incident is being investigated by a traffic analyst and members of the North Okanagan Traffic Services,â€? said Vernon

He was treated for his injuries and released from hospital. The accident closed a portion of the highway for several hours.

The tomato is the fruit of a vine native to South America where, historically, it was thought to be poisonous. Some tomato advocates, however, claimed the fruit had aphrodisiac powers and, in fact, the French called them pommes d’amour, meaning “love apples.” Tomatoes are rich in vitamins A,B & C, potassium and iron.

Concerns of erratic driving behaviour prompted Vernon RCMP to stop a tractor-trailer unit early Monday morning. Complaints about the unit were called in at around 1 a.m. from a resident who encountered the vehicle on Highway 97 near Bailey Road. RCMP were able to stop the truck at a cardlock outlet on 48th Avenue a short time later. Police discovered open liquor in the vehicle. The driver of the rig, a 46-year-old man from Nelson, which is where the tractor-trailer unit also originates from, was given a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition by police, and the company vehicle was impounded for 30 days. The trucking company can appeal to ICBC to have the vehicle released earlier. The driver was carrying an RCMP member’s personal affects to a new residence when he was stopped by police.

Rash of thefts from vehicles leads to arrest ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Vernon RCMP were kept busy over the weekend dealing with a heavy rash of thefts from vehicles. They caught a break – and a suspect – Monday morning. “Since Saturday night, our officers responded to between 12 and 15 thefts from

Sometimes, an RCMP officer and his dog can be in the right place at just the right time. Which is bad news for a break-and-enter suspect. A Vernon member of the police dog unit and his canine were in their unmarked vehicle in the 3300 block of 32nd Avenue writing up another file at 3:35 a.m. Sunday when the officer heard a window break. “The officer got out with his police dog and found a broken window in a business,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The officer checked the building but couldn’t see anybody, so he sent the dog in. The canine immedi-

Kenneth Brian Ralston is now charged with breach of undertaking, alleged to have happened on Saturday, court records show. Ralson, 59, was initially arrested on the attempted murder charge the night of March 3, after police say they found a person bleeding from an apparent gunshot wound to his right leg in a home in the 10000 block of Highway 97 after receiving a call from another home in the area. The victim, a 44-year-old man, was taken to hospital and underwent surgery. Police have said the victim and suspect lived

Get in the game
t’s unfortunate that fingers are being pointed after the Agricultural Land Commission shot down plans for a Greater Vernon sports complex. The ALC claims the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee, which is responsible for parks and recreation, was not part of the application for non-farm status for the land next to Okanagan College. Vernon Mayor Wayne Lippert was quick to blame one of the partners for the situation. “Coldstream was clear it wanted to handle the matter and keep everyone Richard Rolke at arm’s length,” he said. Now that’s a bit of an exaggeration given that it was the North Okanagan Regional District, GVAC’s parent body, that hammered out an agreement to lease the land from Okanagan College. Al McNiven, NORD’s parks and recreation manager, was also the point man in putting the lease together, developing the sports complex design and bringing the various stakeholders, including sports groups, to the table. When plans for the complex were announced in November, NORD chairman Herman Halvorson presided over the proceedings, while the BX directors were also present to lend their support. In fact, all jurisdictions were represented except for Vernon. Lippert claimed his invitation was misplaced. As soon as the plans were unveiled, Lippert went out of his way to poke holes at the lease with Okanagan College although NORD — of which Vernon is the largest player at the table — had been working on the deal for years. It should also be pointed out that Lippert is chairperson of GVAC so he should have known
BEYOND THE HEADLINES
what was going on. Now in terms of the actual non-farm status application to the ALC, Coldstream and Okanagan College carried the ball and that made complete sense. After all, the college is the owner of the site while the ALC process requires applications to be forwarded from the local jurisdiction. In this case, that’s Coldstream, which would also be responsible for rezoning and any other land use issues. In radio reports, Lippert has slammed Coldstream for apparently not asking Vernon to meet with ALC officials when they were touring the college site. But Jim Garlick, Coldstream mayor, has a different interpretation of events. “Our invitation to attend the ALC site meeting came from John Lent (OC dean) to provide comment as the local jurisdiction responsible for the land in question,” said Garlick. “I had asked John Lent if he wanted me and staff present and requested he contact me if he did. Wayne Lippert could have done the same if he truly had an interest in seeing it succeed. If it had not been for Coldstream’s interest and persistence, this project would have been dead long ago. Our role in heading up this project is more by default than request.” Despite the ALC’s ruling, there is still a definite need for a regulation-sized track and other amenities to bolster the economy, long-term growth of the college and local athletes of all ages. That means going back to the drawing board and making the case that this field of weeds is the ideal location for a sports complex and changing the status does not undermine the integrity of the agricultural land base. However, convincing the ALC to accept Greater Vernon’s vision is going to be increasingly challenging if one of the partners continues to play games.
Stephen Harper is one scary, scary dude. His continued presence in the prime minister’s chair threatens our very Canuck-ness. We know this, because we’ve seen it several times in advertisements that have filled our flatscreens every evening since the election was triggered. And don’t get us started on that Michael Ignatieff guy. Plenty of commercials have let us know the man is barely even Canadian. He’s going to sell us down the river for sure. Frightening. (For those not feeling the tone of the above, insert sarcasm here). In reality, our prospective leaders are not quite as chilling as the lengths their parties will go to in their predictable bids to gain power by throwing heaping handfuls of mud at the other guy. As usual, the federal election campaign is taking the low road, launching an offensive blitz aimed at exploiting the public’s emotional hot buttons and pandering to lowest common denominators. And that is why it was a pleasant change of pace to watch the five men chasing the provincial NDP leadership in action in Ladysmith recently. Their lack of rancour was stunning. This should not be construed as any indication the NDP hopefuls are different. We’ve seen Horgan and Dix carve up the Campbell Liberals before. What it does indicate is civility and co-operation is possibile among even the most ambitious souls when those souls have similar goals. We’d like to believe even Ignatieff and Harper (and Layton and Duceppe and May) share a goal of a strong and healthy Canada. Next month, we could have yet another minority government. Wouldn’t our country be better served by individuals who have shown the ability, or at least the desire, to get along? — Cowichan NewsLeader

EDITOR: GLENN MITCHELL
In defence of cyclists
e: Barry Beardsell's comments about transportation demand management in The Morning Star March 16. True, we don’t need lycra cyclists on trails. What we do need is regular people, in their regular clothing, able to get around town safely on bike, on roads or paths that are direct and accessible. The former councillor always provides The Morning Star with something quotable, hardly ever positive, but that’s how he has always represented himself. I think he means well and I think his comments do get people to think. I’ve always thought of him more of a devil ’s advocate, who gives opportunities to prove him wrong, clarify misconceptions and promote items that are in the public’s interest. So, in this instance, Mr. Beardsell is suggesting that TDM has no value as evidenced by their dedication to PENSION PLAN Re: Mayes Defends Stance, Feb. 27 Morning Star It was my understanding that the OAS was a noncontributing pension plan with eligibility for the recipient of benefits based on age (65), citizenship, or legal residency, and having lived in Canada for at least 10 years since one's 18th birthday. A quick search of the government website, Old Age Security Program, produced the following, and I quote: "The amount of your basic OAS pension is based on how long you have lived in Canada. It is not necessary to have worked in Canada to qualify for the OAS pension." Contrarily, Mr, Mayes states in his letter and I quote: "The calculation for this eligible benefit is based on contributions and employment duration once the residency requirement is met." Mr. Mayes further states, and I quote: "This employment is considered in the pension calculation from the time of the person's landing, not from the time they receive permanent resident status." The government website information refers only to one being a "legal resident" to establish eligibility, and makes no mention of "landing." It would seem that either Mr.
spandex cyclists on trails. Great. He’s wrong about both the spandex and trails.
Mayes is misinformed about the OAS, a fundamental pension plan in Canada, or the government website is out of date, although it apparently was last updated 201011-17. I am inclined to believe the former rather than the latter. M.E. Tinck HST RISK I sent a letter to the federal government to let them know our concern about the new tax, the HST in B.C. This tax was introduced by our former prime minister, Jean Chretien, years ago after a promise that if he were elected, he would get rid of the GST. It was not his intention to get rid of the HST and he offered the provinces to go along with his plan 50/50 with the money collected by the federal government. The main concern with this tax is that we cannot trust our governments as we saw so many times, and as we saw again in B.C. when our provincial government implemented the HST with the idea that after it was officially a federal tax, the province cannot reverse it. Now we have to vote in regards to the HST so it is important to know what this tax is for and what it means for the poor and the rich and for the governments before we vote.
The HST is the best way for the federal and provincial governments to balance their budgets. We were told the HST will replace the PST and the GST and it will cost very little more than these taxes. PST seven percent plus GST five per cent equals 12 per cent HST. The fact is the HST is costing a lot more in the long-term. We already have PST seven per cent plus carbon tax five per cent plus GST five per cent equals 17 per cent HST. If the government in the longterm wants to balance their budget, they can add five per cent for hospital, six per cent for forest fires, three per cent for foreign aid, five per cent for school, etc, now we have HST 36 per cent. We have a balanced budget. So we can vote in favour of the HST and take the risk, or against it, and go back to seven per cent PST plus five per cent carbon tax equals 12 per cent PST and five per cent GST. The carbon tax is not that much of a necessity in Canada. This is why the federal government did not take this initiative so the new government in B.C. can eliminate it and go back to PST seven per cent instead of 12 per cent PST. If the risk is not real with the HST, how can we explain the fact that the federal government
He suggests there will be time later on in Vernon’s existence to plan for other forms of transportation. Seemingly ignoring the fact that the town centre is losing its shops and vibrancy because of lack of pedestrian accessibility, population density and tendency for people to shop for price, not service, when what they need/want is not within walking distance. I hope the city planners, TDM co-ordinator and engineers keep up the good work. I also hope they always keep in mind that the public can and will question everything they do, and that they should always be ready to illustrate that TDM projects are not flights of fancy or staff whims. They are projects meant to enhance the livability and sustainability of the city for the citizens. Bruce Mol, Chair of the Greater Vernon Cycling Advisory Committee
offered the B.C. government to make that deal with the HST and then will have to give to Quebec and the other governments that already have the HST in place a good bunch of money as they gave to B.C. This tax can be a very heavy load for the poor class of the society, 80 per cent of our population, good for business, acceptable for the rich that can afford it and very good for our government to finally a balanced budget. As Mr. Flaherty (from ministry of finance) let me know in his reply letter, it is up to the provinces to take the HST or not. Bernard Laroque SUPPORT MUSIC SCHOOL Recently, I had the pleasure of attending the benefit concert put on by the Vernon Community Music School. I was very impressed with the talent of all the music students, who obviously enjoyed every minute of their excellent performances. The music teachers show incredible dedication and ability, and all must be congratulated in putting together an evening of an amazing range of musical pieces. We in Vernon are fortunate to have such a dedicated group representing the music school, and with this in mind it shows how
important it is to keep their home, the historic Smith House, in good repair. I would encourage everyone to support their fundraising, and by all means attend their concerts in the future. You will not be disappointed. Jim Barr

High-profile Liberal makes stop RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A senior Liberal is bringing the federal party’s message to Okanagan-Shuswap voters. Bob Rae, Toronto Centre candidate and the party’s foreign affairs critic, will be at Vernon’s Schubert Centre Sunday. “It will be a meetand-greet but we will ask
him to give his perspective on Canada’s role in the world and what is going on in Afghanistan,” said Janna Francis, the OkanaganShuswap Liberal candidate. “What’s going on in our country with democBob Rae racy is something he’s also
interested in.” Rae is the former NDP premier of Ontario and he was elected to the House of Commons as a Liberal MP in 2008. Francis believes Rae’s visit will increase her profile leading up to the May 2 election. “It’s a real boost for us as a campaign team,” she said. “It’s also telling the electorate that the people of this riding are important to the
Liberal Party.” The public is asked to be at the Schubert Centre at 10 a.m. Rae will arrive shortly after that and be there until 11:30 a.m. Besides Rae, Francis has asked that Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff visit Okanagan-Shuswap before the May 2 election. “He’s really busy and if he can, he will be here,” said Francis.
Magic mushrooms seized Morning Star Staff
A magic mushroom operation has been shut down. On Sunday, RCMP, officers searched an outbuilding on a residential property located in the 4500 block of Hallam Road in Spallumcheen. “They discovered an active psilocybin mushroom growing operation instead of the marijuana-type operation they normally see,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson.
The search resulted in the seizure of approximately 15 kilograms of mushrooms. A quantity of the mushrooms were being dried and a large quantity of others were still growing. The 71-year-old male resident of the property was detained while the officers conducted the investigation. “No charges have been laid yet and the file is still actively being investigated,” said Molendyk.

While the concert is underway, several youth groups are joining the fight against hunger by going 30 hours without any solid food – giving them a taste of what it is like for starving individuals in Third World countries.

concert is badly needed,” exclaimed Travis Rotenburger, marketing director for St. John’s Lutheran Church. Sczebel is equally excited to be doing his part to help. “When I first started working with World Vision, it was simply because I believed in the power of child sponsorship and World Vision was one of the most
prominent organizations facilitating it,” said Sczebel. “Over the past six years I’ve had the privilege of meeting the amazing people behind the scenes, and I’ve witnessed them caring for, not just the practical, but also the emotional needs of those affected by disease and poverty. “I know that the work they are doing is making the world a more beauti-
ful place and I am proud to get behind it.” Sczebel is a two-time Juno award-winning artist for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year as well as a 12-time Gospel Music Association award-winning artist. Along with the concert, the youth at St. John’s are also competing to raise funds in a special challenge.
“We’ve challenged the youth to raise $1,000 and whoever raises the most money is shaving my head bald and waxing a fellow member of the congregation’s legs,” said Rotenburger. All of the proceeds raised from the famine and concert will go directly to World Vision in the fight against hunger, poverty and injustice.
Vernon teens raised $7464.36 during last year’s famine towards the world total raised of $30 million. Across Vernon, there are more than 260 youth taking part in the famine this year with various fundraisers and events.

Beloved children’s tale comes to life KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
He may not have had thread whiskers, a button nose, or ears lined with pink sateen, but to me, my pet lion was real. Leo was a stuffed animal –– and I mean that literally as he had a pouch on his back where you could “stuff ” your pyjamas –– that I loved dearly. Many a dark night was comforted with my orange, woolly-maned friend by my side. And I’m not the only one whose childhood “stuffie” was dragged around everywhere. Decades later, as I’ve placed various stuffed toys by my children’s bedside, I’ve often thought of Margery Williams classic tale The Velveteen Rabbit. “When a child loves you for a long time, not just to play with, but really loves you, then you become REAL”, explains the Skin Horse in the story that speaks to the love between a child and his plush toy rabbit. On April 17, the Toronto-based Erewhon Theatre brings the beloved fable to the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. It’s a production the company has been performing for children and their families throughout Canada for more than a decade. Adapted from Williams’ book by Erewhon Theatre’s Santo Cervello, The Velveteen Rabbit is performed by the theatre’s co-founder Kathryn Popham, a B.C.-based actress and singer, who splits her time performing the show here and in Ontario. “I’ve found a lot of the success over the years is that adults like it because it is a fairly sophisticated story,” said Popham. “It’s more the subject matter that is for kids because it is about toys.” Erewhon’s staging of The Velveteen Rabbit is also unique in that it includes audience participation. Ten children from the community will be chosen at random before the performance to play various roles throughout the pro-

about an hour before the show. “They play the parts of the boy who has the rabbit, and then eight of them play wind-up toys that live in the boy’s nursery, and one of them plays a rabbit –– not the
Velveteen Rabbit, but just a rabbit. “I show them what they’re going to do in the show and then they come in at the right times and they do it. It gives it a different quality depending on the age of the kids, but it’s always cute regardless.” The Velveteen Rabbit is also full of beautiful masks, puppets and props, which all fit into a trunk and help to illustrate the story, said Popham. “You’d be surprised how much you can fit into a trunk. It’s probably 100 pounds of equipment that I ship around with me,” she said, adding the play is a close adaptation of the original story, but does contain some differences for theatrical purposes. “There is a gardener who is referred to in the book that is actually a character in the play in my version.” Popham uses her training in speech arts and theatre in narrating the tale. “I started out taking speech art when I was eight years old and I used to go in the annual speech arts festival and recite poetry in competitions and do dramatic monologues,” she said. “I did that... right up till I was about 18 years old. And that was how I started out. I always used to do plays as a kid and it led to it from that.” Popham has also loaned her voice to an audio CD which contains an unabridged performance of The Velveteen Rabbit, along with a collection of her original songs inspired by the timeless children’s story with titles such as the rollicking Get Up, Something Mysterious, and the touching What Is Real?, among others. The CD won a Parents’ Choice Recommended Award, and will be available in the lobby at the Performing Arts Centre, allowing listeners –– both young and adult –– to take The Velveteen Rabbit home. The Velveteen Rabbit is the last in the Performing Arts Centre society’s 2010/2011 kids series. Shows takes place Sunday, April 17 at 2 and 4 p.m. and all seats are $12, available at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www. ticketseller.ca.

Again, not to mention the well-deserved encore, Danny Boy. Many pieces were arranged by choir members, most notably I Wanna Be Like You, which Chor Leoni includes in its children’s program; and many fine voices were given an opportunity to shine in solos. Thanks to this Choir of Lions, NOCCA’s 2010-2011 season definitely went out with a roar, with the audience eagerly signing up for the 2011-2012 one.

Duo sings and plays at café Morning Star Staff
CHBC CTV BC CBUT
She sings, he plays. It’s a pretty simple statement but that’s exactly what Toronto voiceguitar duo, Julie Michels and Kevin Barrett, do when they get together. They are in the Okanagan on the release of their new recording, She Sings He Plays, this week, and take the stage at Lorenzo’s Café in Ashton Creek Friday. “Experiencing the music of Kevin Barrett and Julie Michels live in concert is something you won’t forget. They might look like a duo but their music fills the room and commands attention,” said Jaymz Bee, with radio station JAZZ.FM91. Drawing broadly from pop, jazz and Latin standards, the duo’s new 10-song collection includes favourites by The Beatles, Paul Simon and Rickie Lee Jones, as well as Michels’ original composition, Fall from Grace (featured in a video which is included on the disc.) Building on the success of their 2003 release, Live at Statler’s, the album also features Michels’ “glorious holler” (as deemed by Mark Miller, music critic with The Globe & Mail) and Barrett’s intricate guitar work, enhanced by the judicious use of looping and overdubbing technology. Featured on the Toronto jazz scene for more than two decades, Michels studied with legendary bassist Richard Davis at the University of Wisconsin and spent time gigging across Europe and North America.

How do I decide on what options I should purchase for my kitchen?
Optional items in kitchen design these days are endless. Many are functionally useful and necessary to your needs, many are simply pretty and trendy. Either way they are all costly and add to the bottom line. You need to ask your self what do I need and what do I want? Is this for my personal use to add to the ease of use of my new kitchen or is this a re sale feature item? My opinion is this, if this kitchen is for your personal long term use then add what ever features you can comfortably afford and ﬁnd appealing. This is personal to you alone as very few of your friends, neighbors and relatives will ever see or use these custom features. Make yourself happy so that you will enjoy every moment in your new kitchen without breaking the bank, only add what you can afford. If however you are upgrading to sell then keep the upgrades to what can be seen. Buyers seldom open every door or drawer to see what is behind them and this is where the majority of these items exist. I personally experienced this once where I put every bell and whistle I could in one of my personal kitchens and when we sold the house I could not get any more mileage out of the real-estate team other than to have them say, “ Custom Maple Cabinets” All of the added value items which were quite extensive were never noticed by any of the potential buyers that visited our home.

I would like my office to be become more paperless?
A growing number of ofﬁce environments are making a conscience choice toward paperless and developing systems to save their documents electronically. The advantages of paperless: 1. Eliminates the need for physical storage space 2. Increases efﬁciency while minimizes cost 3. Electronic documents are stored safely and securely 4. Ease of access with electronic search engines to retrieve documents quickly 5. Tracking systems are created to compartmentalize with folder and subfolders It is essential to invest in an external hard drive to store all your valuable information. If you have a website, ask your web host to create electronic folders to store your documents safely and securely. Another option is to contact a business that specializes in electronic document management systems to store all your documentation. By developing the routine of a paperless ofﬁce you are another step closer to being more environmentally friendly.

Agency is explained in the “Working with a Realtor” brochure that your Realtor will go through in detail with you. By signing this brochure, you, the client is NOT bound to the realtor. It is a signed disclosure that the client has had their rights in the Agency Relationship explained to them as well as the Realtors obligations and responsibilities to the client in this relationship. The Agency Relationship between a Client and their Realtor is as follows: • Undivided loyalty. The brokerage must protect the principle negotiating position at all times, and disclose all known facts which may affect or inﬂuence the principal’s decision. • To obey all lawful instructions of the principal. • An obligation to keep the conﬁdences of the principal. • To exercise reasonable care and skill in performing all assigned duties. • To account for all money and property placed in a brokerage’s hands while acting for the principal.

Do I Need a Social Media Strategy?
Yes – if you want to be effective and efﬁcient in your efforts, you need a strategy, and yes, that means more than adding a “like” button to your website. The main purpose of social media is to provide a platform for you to interact with customers and prospects, so your strategy should address how you are targeting speciﬁc customers and even how you can be leveraging them for referrals and recommendations. According to iStrategy, in 2010 companies with dedicated social media activity boosted sales by over 18%. This goes to show that social media can be a very valuable tool and if you want it to be successful, you need to be committed to being active and more importantly – committed to being focused. Focused on what? – On your target audience, their needs and what you are doing to satisfy them.

Can you tell me how many calories I burn while walking?
If you weigh about 150 lbs, you’ll burn between 80-100 calories per mile. But, if you want to become ﬁtter and/or to lose weight, don’t focus only on the numbers. Add as much physical activity as possible in your day-to-day living. More importantly, become aware of your sitting times, and consciously work on decreasing those hours of inactivity. Walking 10,000 steps every day brings you closer to optimum health, ﬁtness, and longevity. Even just increasing from what you’re doing right now will help you start reaping huge rewards… with more happiness and vitality. Lace up your walking shoes and clip on your pedometer. Make today your day towards health and ﬁtness.
I am mid to high handicap (but some days I can barely break 100), how can I become a more consistent player?
Here is a tip for golfers of all skill levels, “Think Three Quarters”. What I mean by this is I want you to try to think about taking a ¾ backswing. Many golfers swing past parallel or over swing at the top of their backswing which can require you to re-grip on your downswing. To see this I want you to deliberately over swing and stop at the top of the backswing. Once you get past parallel you will notice that your grip becomes loose and in order to hit the ball you must re-grip on the way down. It is hard to imagine that a shorter more “compact” swing can actually produce more power for you but it can and it definitely will produce more control. Try to “think ¾” next time you go to the driving range to practice or to warm up try this drill and I am sure you will be surprised. Drop by Strictly Golf to see if we can help compact your swing or help you with anything golf related.

New option for people not on EI seeking employment Morning Star Staff
A new program will target individuals looking for work who are not on Employment Insurance. The No r t h O k a n a g a n Employment Enha ncement Society will launch JobOptionsBC May 9, and the deadline to register is April 15. â€œThis eight-week employment program is for jobseekers over the age of 18 who are not eligible for Employment Insurance,â€? said Lynn Belsher, executive director. â€œThose receiving EI have a number of programs available to them. However, there is not much available for those that are unemployed and not eligible for EI. â€œ Belsher believes the need is great. â€œWe received nearly 40 applications for our first session of this program, but could only accept 12,â€? she said. The program teaches participants the skills to perform an effective job search including how to create a targeted resume, prepare for a job interview and how to network. Participants receive five weeks of paid classroom time based on attendance. Additional training is also provided which can include WHMIS, H2S Alive, ground disturbance, first aid, WorldHost customer service training, FoodSafe and Serving It Right. â€œOur participants are very employable, but may not have the knowledge of how to perform an effective job search,â€? said Belsher. â€œThey also may not have the means to take the required courses for the work they want.â€? For employers, the
program can provide a wage subsidy for participants during the 3 work placement. It gives the partici-
pant a chance to demonstrate their skills and abilities and if the placement is successful and a permanent posi-
tion opens up, employers have the opportunity to hire someone theyâ€™ve already trained.
â€œNOEES has already run one eight-week session and has had huge success,â€? said Carolyn Matyjanka, program
manager. â€œSeveral participants have found employment, and some are continuing on with
training and further job search.â€? For more information on JobOptionsBC, go to www.noees.com.

Down the road, Johnny Knisley can spin a yarn about how he dashed coast-to-coast for the biggest goal of his Junior A hockey career. For now, the New Yorker will have to settle on a lucky bounce that gave the Vernon Vipers a 4-3 win over the Powell River Kings before 2,139 fans Monday night at the Wesbild Centre. The Vipers took a 3-0 Fred Page Cup series strangehold into Game 4 Tuesday night. A fifth game in the B.C. Hockey League championship, if required, would go Thursday night on the Sunshine Coast. Vernon clipped the Kings 1-0 on a late goal by captain David Robinson in Game 2 Saturday night at Hap Parker Arena in Powell River. Knisley fired a shot from the right corner which bounced off Powell River towering defenceman Justin DaSilvaâ€™s leg and past a startled goalie Sean Maguire for Mondayâ€™s winner. â€œI was just doing the forecheck along the wall and just threw it in front and (Darren) Nowick was in front there and I was trying to give him a good look, and luckily, it went off DaSilva and in,â€? said Knisley, of his third playoff snipe. Knisley, named third star, feels the Vipers are bringing enough energy to claim a third straight league playoff crown. â€œOur whole team is just putting in a good effort for a full 60 minutes in each game. Theyâ€™re a good, hard-working team and we know that and we just have to win puck battles and races to the puck and good things will keep coming our way.â€? Powell River coach Kent Lewis was smiling and shaking his head as his players boarded the bus for their West Kelowna hotel. â€œIt was a weird fourth goal for sure,â€? said Lewis. â€œWe had a lot of chances but we just didnâ€™t convert and that goes in. You say, â€˜What the heckâ€™ sometimes but you keep your chin up and weâ€™ve got an opportunity to play tomorrow which not a lot of teams have and we look forward to getting a win.â€? Cohen Adair gave the Kings a 1-0 lead 2:49 into the game on a wrister from the slot on the powerplay. Michael Zalewski outworked a defender for a loose puck after some good corner work by Nowick and Knisley and beat starter Michael Garteig on a powerplay wrister. The Vipers led 2-1 after one period and were up 3-1 until midway through the second when the Kings starting taking over the play, especially down low. First star Malcolm Lyles scored once and set up Marcus Basara with a gorgeous one-hand pass after a spectacular rush to lead the Vipers, who won their seventh straight playoff tilt. â€œI saw two guys out of the corner of my eye, and I knew that they would actually stop at the net because weâ€™ve done that probably 20 times this season so Iâ€™m glad it paid off and Bas was there to bury it,â€? said Lyles, a natural-born thriller. The Vipers chased Garteig after Lyles fooled the Prince George all-star with a long, soft wrist shot from just inside

Viper captain David Robinson prepares to block a rocket point shot from the Kings' Jason Yee in Game 3 action of the Fred Page Cup championship series Monday night at Wesbild Centre. The Vipers won 4-3 to take a 3-0 series lead. Visit The Morning Star online at www.vernonmorningstar.com (click on the Vipers Central tab) for a photo slideshow from Game 3. the blueline with 4:50 gone in the second period. Maguire came in and saw his first minutes of the post-season. â€œI saw a little opening on the goalieâ€™s arm, a small opening,â€? said Lyles. â€œHe was waiting for me to try and go corner so I was fortunate enough that he did what he did.â€? Lyles figured the Kings did battle harder in the corners and while they enjoyed several screened scoring chances, the Vipers were there to block several shots in front of a solid Kirby Halcrow. Robinson scored from Basara and Corkey, with 5:19 remaining, as the Vipers won Game 2 before 1,129 fans in Powell River. Halcrow took first star with 24 stops. â€œItâ€™s been two games now where Iâ€™ve thought we should have won, but you canâ€™t say we were the better team because we didnâ€™t win,â€? said Lewis. â€œWe just gotta be better for 60 minutes and keep plugging. â€œWe need our goalie to be better, no question. Thatâ€™s the first time Iâ€™ve probably yanked him all year. He knows that. Our guys are pretty optimistic; theyâ€™re not hanging their heads. That was the best group Iâ€™ve seen for this challenge. Theyâ€™re in good shape and theyâ€™ve got a lot of gas so tomorrow, certainly, I expect Vernon to be better too and weâ€™ll be better as well.â€? The Kings pulled within one nine minutes after Lylesâ€™ goal when Steven Schmidt led an aggressive three-man rush and fed Chris Williams for a gorgeous bang-bang shorthanded tally. Powell River, who led the BCHL with 46 regular-season
wins, equalized at 5:50 of the third with 42 seconds left in a powerplay with Chad Niddery finishing a sweet play involving Andrew Pettitt and Jon Jutzi. The Kings outshot the Vipers 33-20, including a 17-6 margin in the second period. Halcrow, chosen Player of the Week, earned his 10th win of the playoffs, his biggest stop coming with 79 seconds left in the second when he did the splits to stone Brendan Forbes in tight. Niddery, who trash talked the Vipersâ€™ Dylan Walchuk all night, said the Kings were hardly ready to call it a year. â€œYou take the positives, as much as you can, out of it,â€? said Niddery, who along with Pettitt, is facing Vernon for a third straight year. â€œItâ€™s a bad feeling to actually dominate a team for the most part and come out empty-handed, but the bounces are gonna come our way one of these days and I mean, weâ€™ve been down in this position before so itâ€™s nothing new to our team. Itâ€™s not like we have our heads down or anything. Weâ€™re going to come out flying tomorrow.â€? Hits-of-the-night were a Brett Corkey smackdown of the Kingsâ€™ Chad Garbowsky in open ice, and a DaSilva crushing of the Vipersâ€™ Zach McPhee against the side boards.

Vernon Jackals’ Garth Cooke (centre) breaks through for a try with Merritt Barbarians’ Brian Walmsley, from left, Max Hepner and Garrett Grimshire on his heels in Okanagan Rugby Union action Sunday at Grahame Park.
Jackals jump Barbarians Morning Star Staff
The Vernon Jackals took the expansion Merritt Barbarians to school in their men’s Division 3 Okanagan Rugby Union season opener Sunday at Grahame Park. Adam Morad led the Jackal attack with a pair of tries, and was named Foward of the Game, as the Jackals grounded the Barbarians 29-5. “Overall it was a very nice opening victory for our club. It is always good to open the season with a win, and for the first game of the year we played well,” said Jackals’ player-coach Mike Scheller. “Merritt has a young team, and credit to them, they fought hard all game. We just had more experience and size on our side, which helped.” The Jackal forwards had a great game in controlling the ball and winning numerous rucks which allowed them many phases on attack. “It is an easy game when you control possession of the ball and our forwards did a great job of keeping possession,” said Scheller. The Jackal pack also controlled most of the scrums, with hooker Erik Grottenrod stealing some opposition put-ins as well. “Our lineouts are still a work in progress,” added Scheller.
Standoff Rob Miles deftly controlled Vernon’s attack, distributing the ball for multiple attacks up the wings. “He put our players in positions to attack and retain possession very well,” said Scheller. Josh Cooper crashed the ball effectively from his inside centre spot, and dished out some punishing tackles. Centre Garth Cooke had some great offensive runs, and scored a long try early in the second half. Tanner Nordstrom-Young was confident at fullback, making some nice attacking runs. Lock Geoff Cranton, one of the hardest working Jackals, earned a great try early in the first half, while Fulton Maroon grad Jesse Lochhead scored in his Jackal debut. Pearse Wylie was 2-for-5 on conversions. In other league action, West Kelowna upset the Penticton Harlequins 27-15.
It wasn’t the colour they were hoping for, but Team Okanagan collected a medal at the Under 16 girls B.C. Cup hockey action last weekend at the South Cariboo Recreation Centre in 100 Mile House. Lavington’s Lisa Campeau collected a goal as Okanagan, the defending champions, stuffed Vancouver Island 4-1 in the bronze-medal game, Sunday. Vernon’s Jenna Lazar and Lavington’s Ali Roine both pocketed singles as Okanagan opened the tourney with a 6-5 win over the Kootenays. The game was tied 2-2 until Okanagan scored back-to-back goals to take a two-goal lead.

Erban up for downhill Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Mischo Erban is a bona fide star in a fringe sport. Downhill skateboarding, which falls under the category of gravity sports, might receive slightly more attention than the Unicycle Hockey World Championships or the World Footbag Association – both real entities – but it is still a ways off the beaten sporting path. Many people wouldn’t know this, but Erban is the world record holder for the fastest speed (130 km/h) on a downhill skateboard, a record he set last September in Colorado. His feat was featured on the Discovery Channel’s Daily Planet, and in an ESPN online article. He is also the driving force behind the Vernon DH, a downhill skateboarding event held every year on Middleton Mountain. The seventh annual Vernon DH goes June 11 and 12. After finishing runner-up in his first two seasons on the International Gravity Sports Association (IGSA) downhill skateboarding world cup circuit, Erban, now 27, became the world champion in 2009. He managed eighth place on the IGSA circuit last season after he made the switch to all-new equipment. Despite these accolades, Erban, now heading into his fifth world cup season, is getting no love from the corporate sponsorship world. He approached Red Bull, makers of the popular caffeinated energy drink. From cliff diving to crashed ice – which is basically downhill skiing on hockey skates – they seem to sponsor pretty much every extreme sport there is. But Erban says they weren’t interested. Erban estimates it will cost about $50,000 to cover expenses for his upcoming season. He studied

mechanical engineering at Okanagan College, but the travel requirements of his sport make it pretty much impossible for him to hold down a steady job. Instead, he picks up odd jobs, usually manual labour, to help make ends meet. Frustrated with continually being turned down by corporate sponsors, he has decided to take a divide-and-conquer approach to his fundraising. After doing a Google search of “How to make $50,000?” Erban found an intriguing solution. Amongst all the “make $50,000 in two weeks” bogus scams, there was one forum where someone posted a simple suggestion – get $50 from 1,000 people and you will have $50,000. “The light bulb went on,” said Erban. “This simple idea of a number game intrigued me to craft the idea that if Vernon has roughly 50,000 people and I get one-50th to help me out (1,000) then that’s $50,000.” “Even a 50 per cent fail rate of that itself is $25,000!” Erban, who was born in Prague, plans to go door-to-door in Vernon, asking for $50 from everyone until he reaches 1,000 people. For their support he will send a postcard from one of nine world cup locations, which include the Czech Republic, Germany, Italy, Brasil, Peru, Australia and South Africa. Donators’ names will also be posted on a sponsor list on Erban’s website (www.mischo. com). “I’m trying to take it in my own hands with the help of Vernon. I wasn’t going to wait for someone to just up and offer me something,” he said. To contact Erban, or for more information about the sport of downhill skateboarding, visit www.mischo.com.

Leah Mulvihill scored twice and Patti Hansen was solid in net as the Buy-Low Vixens shut down the Kamloops Valleyview Lions 3-0 in the women’s division 2 final of the Checkers Rec Hockey Tournament Sunday at Priest Valley Arena. Derri-Anne Cooper also scored for the Vixens, who got two assists from Nichole Oakden. The Lions left the ice with three minutes left after each team was assessed a major penalty during a melee. “We had amazing play by all the girls and strong goaltending by Patti Hansen,” said Oakden. “A huge thank you goes to our wonderful sponsor Buy-Low Foods.” The Vixens earlier grounded the Armstrong Farmers 4-2 Friday afternoon at PV, getting goals from Bernie Dwan, Edeen Ramsey, Cooper and Mulvihill. Nat Daniels scored for the Farmers. Veteran blueliner Christine Bosworth exploded with 3+2 as Buy-Low stuffed the RTS Rocket Stars 8-1 Saturday morning at PV.

The president of The Vernon MS Society is ordering good weather for the 11th annual Walk/Run/Ride for MS April 17 in Polson Park. “We’ve had the event in snow and had not many people out and we’ve had it in good weather and had more than 200 participants, so we want good weather so everyone can enjoy the walk,” he said. The Walk/Run/Ride is the main fundraiser for the society, which has an office in The People Place providing information and education, peer counseling, social events and transportation to appointments. “People who are newly diagnosed or at any point in MS are welcome to come in and talk. It can take a couple of years for people to get a diagnosis and it can be shocking and overwhelming at first, but it’s not a death sentence, you manage,” said Gendron, who was diagnosed at 28. The average age for diagnosis is 26 with two out of three people who have MS being women. The Walk/Run/Ride takes place April 17 at Polson Park starting at 11 a.m. Teams and individuals are welcome. Other groups can take part in the 50/50, keeping half of the money they raise and donating half to the MS Society.

A dessert fit for a ballerina
he first time I enjoyed a Pavlova was for my niece’s birthday a few years ago. Being sensitive to gluten, she needed a cake that used no flour and so a Pavola was the perfect choice. Basically a Pavlova is a meringue crust filled with whipped cream and fresh fruit. It originated in New Zealand (and/ or Australia) following the world tour of the famous ballerina Anna Pavlova in 1926 when she visited that area. It’s said that a chef at a hotel in Wellington invented the dessert inspired by Pavlova’s tutu which was draped in green silk and cabbage roses. The basic shape of the tutu, was providCathi Litzenberger ed by the meringue bowl, and the froth of the skirt’s tulle was suggested by the whipped cream. The chef achieved the effect of roses by using slices of kiwi fruit. Both countries claim Pavlova as their national dessert, although the name has more to do with the fact that the dessert was described as being as light as the ballerina’s dance. Any fresh fruit can be used in this dessert and it would be a perfect fit for an Easter dessert. A Queen’s Pavlova 6 egg whites 1 pinch salt 2 cups castor sugar or superfine sugar 1-1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
KITCHEN WIT & WISDOM
1-1/2 tsp. vinegar 1/2 cup unsweetened flaked coconut, optional but recommended 2 cups sweetened whipped cream 2 kiwi fruit, peeled, halved lengthwise, and sliced 1 cup fresh strawberries, sliced 1 fresh peach, peeled, pitted and sliced 1 cup fresh blueberries Sugar for sweetening cream as desired Preheat oven to 450 F (220 C). You will be turning the temperature down to 300 F (150 C) when you put this in to bake. Line a 9 or 10-inch round glass dish with parchment paper. Combine the egg whites and salt in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until able to form soft peaks. Sprinkle in the sugar 1 tbsp. at a time while continuing to whip to stiff peaks. Stir in the vanilla and vinegar, and fold in coconut if using. Spread evenly into the prepared glass dish, making sure to spread out to all of the edges. Place the Pavlova into the preheated oven, and immediately reduce the temperature to 300 F. Bake for 40 to 50 minutes, or until the top is crisp and a pale straw colour. Leave in the oven, and turn off the heat. Let it stay in the oven until the oven has cooled completely. Once the Pavlova has cooled, remove the parchment paper, place on nice serving dish and top generously with sweetened whipped cream. Arrange the kiwi, strawberries, peaches, and blueberries in beautiful concentric circles on top. Slice with a sharp knife into serving size pieces.
Chocolate Pavlova 6 egg whites 1/4 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. cream of tartar 1-1/2 cups granulated sugar 3 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder 2 tsp. cornstarch 1 tbsp. vinegar 2 tsp. vanilla extract 2 (1 oz.) squares bittersweet chocolate, melted 3 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and halved 1-1/2 cups whipping cream 2 tsp. granulated sugar 1 (1 oz.) square bittersweet chocolate, melted Beat together egg whites, salt and cream of tartar to soft peaks in a large bowl. Beat in sugar, about 3 tbsp. at a time, until stiff peaks form. Sift cocoa and cornstarch over egg whites, and gently fold in. Gently fold in vinegar, vanilla and melted chocolate. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, and spread the meringue into an 8-inch circle, with upward edges. Bake in the centre of the oven for 1-1/2 hours or until the outside is crisp and the centre is soft. Using a metal spatula, loosen the meringue from the parchment paper, and move to a wire rack. Allow to cool completely, about an hour. Whip cream with the 2 tsp. of sugar and spread over the meringue. Arrange strawberries decoratively over the top and drizzle with the last square of melted chocolate.

I’m a Grade 10 student at Pleasant Valley secondary school, and an active member of the community of Armstrong. I am a member of Girl Guides of Canada and a cadet in the Rocky Mountain Rangers Enderby Cadet Corps. I am also a youth member of Zion United Church. I volunteer in many different areas; I am a Sunday School helper at Zion, a youth healthcare volunteer at Pleasant Valley Manor, and a member of the PVSS Leadership class, which participates in numerous activities around Armstrong and Vernon, such as working at the soup kitchen and organizing community clean-ups. Recently, I learned that there is an opportunity this summer to travel on a trip through Girl Guides of Canada and Me to We: Free the Children to Maasai Mara, Kenya. Me to We: Free the Children is a global leadership group working to improve living conditions for children around the world. The trip involves working with community members and assisting with projects, such as building a classroom for a school that is under construction nearby and planting trees at a local tree nursery.

Beware of April frost t the time of writing this article, warm weather has returned. The crocus are in bloom, tulips and daffodils are coming up and will give us a good display. The peonies are also showing signs of growth. There is still a chance of night time frost and any tenFred Lyall der plants you might want to plant in your yard should be protected until midMay. We are very lucky to be so well served by garden centres such as Swan Lake, Art Knapp and the Flower Spot: they all offer a wide variety of plants. If you have a greenhouse, you can start plants

from seed. Many gardeners find it a lot more convenient to buy plants. If you have a chance, look for a hybrid petunia called Surfinia. They produce a lot of blooms — I like one called Bright Pink. In reply to a fellow who called and was planning a new yard, I would add a few things that I know produce very well. Norland potatos will do well in most soils, as will Black Satin blackberries and Tulameen raspberries. I am not a grape grower, but there are several varieties that will do well: just be sure they are hardy varieties. Okanagan Gardens and Roses meets April 11 at 7:30 p.m. at the Schubert Centre.

Hummingbirds banded for preservation BARB HARRIS Special to The Morning Star
Are you interested in hummingbirds? Did you know that the smallest hummingbird, the bee hummingbird, is only five cm long? Did you also know that hummingbirds can not only stop in mid air and hover, but can actually fly backward, the only group of birds able to do so? And did you know that hummingbirds, which can fly at speeds in excess of 34 miles per hour, migrate by themselves, as far as 4,000 kilometres? If you find these facts interesting, and would like to help scientists learn more about hummingbirds, then read on. Gail Loughridge, the local head bander, moved here in 2002. She started banding in Vernon immediately. “I was asked by Cam Finlay, a master bander
from Victoria, to start banding here,” she said. “He really wanted an Interior location. He came and helped me band around Vernon, and in two days I banded over 75 birds.” Initially, Gail banded two species, Rufous and Calliope, but there is a new kid on the block – the Blackchinned hummingbird. Alarmingly, the Rufous population, the most common species in Western Canada, has been declining for more than 40 years. This pattern is disturbing to ornithologists, as extinction of bird spe-
cies is occurring at an alarming rate. Fossil records show that, on average, just one species of birds was lost every century. Today, between one and 10 species of birds are thought to become extinct every year. Banding in the North Okanagan gathers information for two different scientific studies, the Hummingbird Project of BC, and the Hummingbird Monitoring Network. The Hummingbird Project of BC (HPBC) is committed to the preservation of hummingbird species and their habitats throughout Western Canada. It also supplies information to the Canadian Wildlife Service, which keeps track of hummingbird locations, populations, and species decline throughout Canada. The Hummingbird
Monitoring Network surveys hummingbird populations every two weeks, according to a set protocol. Both the network and the project are working to determine population trends, and to increase public knowledge about hummingbirds, so that people will promote and assist with habitat protection. Gail feels strongly about the need to collect data for both of these groups. “One never knows which bird will be the one that gives the golden information; or is caught at a very distant site; or returns to the same spot for many years. Therefore it is important to band as many hummingbirds as possible.” The hummingbird banding group, an offshoot of the North Okanagan Naturalists’
Club, is looking for more participants. Banding takes place on Saturday and Sunday mornings, as well as on occasional week nights, from early May to the end of July. New members would help with catching the birds, as well as recording information about them, and would be asked to come and help twice a month. A workshop on banding and related
activities will be held in late April. Please contact Gail Loughridge at
email@example.com, or at 250-545-7455 for more information.

DISTRICT OF COLDSTREAM NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR

Salvation Army food bank representatives Helen Ratch (left), Anna Lee, David MacBain and Brenda Betts (right) accept $1,681 from CIBC Wood Gundy representative Ken Gaskell. The money will help fund the monthly Moms and Tots program.
Pursuant To Sections 26 and 40 of the Community Charter, the Municipal Council of the District of Coldstream intends to close, remove the dedication, and dispose of a portion of the Road dedicated by Plan 37599. These lands are surplus to the District of Coldstream based on the design and construction of the new College Way. That portion of the Road is shown on the plan below, in bold outline and identi¿ed as “CLOSE ROAD”. It is approximately 0.205 hectares in size and located adjacent to the new College Way alignment and the Kalamalka Seed Orchards. The District of Coldstream will subsequently receive 2.33 hectares as part of the new College Way construction project. As part of the College Way project, this portion of the Road will be disposed of to the Province of British Columbia - Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and consolidated with their land to the north. The Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations has provided a statutory right-of-way over their lands to the District of Coldstream to allow construction and access to the new College Way. In exchange, the District of Coldstream intends to close a portion of right-ofway not required for transportation and to consolidate it with the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations lands.
Election possible HANNAH SUTHERLAND Black Press
In addition to heading to federal and municipal polls this year, Surrey-White Rock MLA Gordon Hogg says he wouldn’t be surprised if the local electorate faces a provincial election in between. Hogg speculates Premier Christy Clark might hold a general election in the fall – just months after casting votes May 2 for national leaders, and prior to the Nov. 19 civic election. With the date for a provincial election previously set for 2013, a byelection to fill former premier Gordon Campbell’s vacant seat has to be called six months from his March 14 resignation date. A general election called beforehand, however, would negate the need for a byelection. “I think clearly one would want to consult the polls and see how we’re doing, but if we’re doing well, Christy has made a commitment during her leadership campaign she would hold an election earlier,” he said.

and some neo-Marxist claptrap that all power projects are evil unless they’re shackled to a unionized government monopoly. The NDP candidates’ recent health care debate featured promises to roll back the contracted-out health care support jobs, reconstructing the small portion of the unionized health monopoly broken up by the Campbell gov-
ernment. NDP front-runner Mike Farnworth also scorned the “rethermed” hospital food that is part of the desperate effort to rein in health care costs. Candidates mused about bringing in fresh local food for hospital patients, which sounds nice but can only add costs.

Horgan garners support TOM FLETCHER
Licensed • Bonded • Insured
NDP leadership contender John Horgan has been endorsed by key figures from the party’s decade in government, including former premier Dan Miller. Miller and former NDP finance ministers Paul Ramsey and Elizabeth Cull are supporting Horgan as the NDP leadership contest leads up to its membership vote on April 17. Horgan also announced the support of Anne Edwards, a two-term MLA from the Kootenays who was energy minister during Mike Harcourt’s years as B.C. premier. Horgan was an assistant to Miller when he became energy minister during the late 1990s and then served as chief of staff during Miller’s brief stint as premier after Glen Clark resigned. Horgan is now MLA for Juan de Fuca on southern Vancouver Island and has served as the NDP’s energy critic since 2005. Miller now serves as a director of the B.C. Ferry Authority. He remains an NDP member, and when former leader Carole

Former NDP finance ministers Paul Ramsey and Elizabeth Cull, along with former premier Dan Miller have pledged their support to leadership candidate John Horgan.
“Who do you think is the best next premier?” — Paul Ramsey James stepped down in December, he called Horgan to urge him to run. “John and I don’t agree on everything,” Miller said. “Quite frankly, he’s much greener than I am. “We may have disagreements on issues, but in terms of the overall person who’s got the strengths and ability to lead the party, I think he’s the right guy.” Cull, a former
Victoria-area MLA and NDP finance minister, now runs a small chain of garden stores. She said Horgan is the candidate who is best able to reach beyond the party’s traditional base and appeal to small business people. “I’m a business person and I’m a New Democrat, and a lot of people think that’s a contradiction in terms,” Cull said. “It’s not.” Ramsey served as
Prince George MLA, education and finance minister during the 1990s and has since taught political science at the University of Northern B.C. He said NDP members are focused on two things, uniting the party after the rift that forced former leader Carole James out last year, and winning the next election. “I would ask party members to consider one other thing. Who do you think is the best next premier? Who is going to be able to run a consistent, principled and effective government? And for my money, that’s John Horgan.”

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Some kind of information from a confidential source is likely to work to your benefit, but you’ll have to act promptly on it. It won’t sit around waiting for you to make up your mind. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Make it a point to mingle either through e-mail, telephone or by dropping in at your favorite gathering place. Lucky things could happen for you through people you know socially. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Conditions in general are more favorable for you than usual, especially in matters pertaining to your popularity. It can be an interesting day for you, if you make the most of it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Just about everything should work out to your ultimate benefit right now, even if that isn’t so for your colleagues. Lady Luck has singled you out for her special attention. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) An individual to whom you’ve been especially helpful in the past hasn’t forgotten your kindness. It is quite possible that this person will reciprocate in a lavish way. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) A group of your associates might ask you to represent them in a matter that concerns you as well as them, because they believe you to be a skillful negotiator. You won’t let them down.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You won’t have to ask, yet the appropriate help will be there for you when you find yourself involved in something that needs more than one person to handle. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s not generally advisable to take gambles on people or things about which you know little, yet that’s exactly what you’re likely to do, and you’ll fare quite well.

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

Bridge by Phillip Alder You have a big balanced hand, but suddenly the opponent on your right opens the bidding with one of a suit. How do you show the strength of your hand? An overcall of one notrump shows a good 15 to a poor 18 points -- about half a point more than a one-no-trump opening bid. (That means that you would not overcall with a poor 15, but will make the bid with a â€œweakâ€? 18. Remember that this overcall is dangerous because your left-hand opponent, the responder, is in a good position to double for penalty if he has a decent hand.) If you make a takeout double and rebid a minimum number of
no-trump, it shows 1820 points. And a double followed by a jump in no-trump is 21-22 (if you can bid two no-trump, but might be stronger if you have to bid three notrump). In this deal, South doubles, then rebids one no-trump with 19 points. North, with a six-count and a ďŹ ve-card suit, should have no reservation in bidding three notrump. Remember, it pays to be aggressive in these situations because declarer will know where the missing high cards are concentrated -- in the openerâ€™s hand. After West leads the club queen, the play should be straightforward. South needs to take four
diamond tricks. But if East started with at least three diamonds and knows to hold up his ace until the third round of the suit, declarer will need a dummy entry. So, he must take the ďŹ rst trick in his hand with the club ace. Then he drives out the diamond ace and cruises home.

In Loving Memory of
Dennis Wayne Henry
Dennis, you were very special, right from the start, A wonderful Son with a generous heart. You carried yourself with humility and pride, with a beautiful smile you could never hide. We miss you dearly and wish you were here, but then realize you will always be near. For you are the sun that shines above, you are the rainbows that we all love. You are the breeze that gently blows past, that beautiful butterﬂy we can almost grasp. Thank you for the lessons you taught us all, to always be brave and always stand tall. Remember we love you and always will, we only wish time could have stood still. Forever missed and always in our hearts, Mom and Dad, sister Joanne, wife Jennifer
