Shriners give gift of mobility CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Riley McLean hasn’t stopped smiling since he got his Segway. “It’s so much fun. People are coming up to me and asking me about it. They all think it’s cool. Now I’ll be able to go on hikes with Scouts and I won’t get so tired all the time walking wherever I want to go. I say thank you so much to the Shriners for getting it for me,” said the 11-year-old Grade 5 Beairsto School student. He has arthrogyropsis, a congenital condition which does not allow him to bend his knees and elbows and causes him to have brittle bones. The Segway Personal Transporter is an electric battery-powered, twowheeled vehicle which was developed as a green alternative to cars. The user stands on it which suits Riley fine since he can’t sit down. Anne Ross, occupational therapist for the Vernon School District, did the research and determined that the Segway would be the best mobility device for Riley, who finds it difficult to walk. Purchasing the Segway

was turned down for provincial government funding because it is not a traditional mobility aid. “I was lucky enough to meet the Shriners and that they provided the Segway. This will save Riley’s joints from the impact of walking, his knees would get very sore, and allow him to keep up with his peers. He’s very happy with it,” she said. Riley was able to try out a Segway at the Spinal Cord Research Unit at Vancouver General Hospital last summer to make sure it was suitable for his needs. Riley’s classmates are also pleased to see their friend get the Segway. “It’s great how the Shriners help him so he can have a nicer life,” said Mason Christensen. There will be a presentation about Riley and his Segway for all of the students in the school so they can learn how to help him use it safely in school and on the grounds and to join in activities. He will be using the Segway to get to and from school. “All of the students and the teachers are happy to see him have it. Everyone wants to try it but we can’t

allow that. We want the students to understand that this is a needful tool, not a toy,” said principal Wendy Varley. Riley’s father Keith McLean tells what life has been like for his son up until now. “This is one more step for Riley, doors open for him, miracles are standard in his life,” he said. “Riley came to us (mother Odette) when he was 20-months-old as a foster child. We didn’t know if he would ever walk or talk. But he has learned to walk in his way and talks well and is very bright. He has been in Beairsto since kindergarten and has lots of friends and swims and skateboards, which was difficult to learn since he has only his hips to move to balance and control the board.” For his parents, there is one miracle which they will never forget. “As foster parents, we didn’t have the right to adopt but two weeks before we wanted to apply there was a court ruling that said it was unconstitutional to disallow foster parents to adopt. We were able to adopt him. He is an important part of our fam-

ily. He’s a treat,” said Keith. Riley has four older brothers and a sister, all adults and a large extended family with lots of cousins. His sister, a kinesiologist and coach, developed an individualized workout program for him. “What keeps him going is his drive. He really wants to do things and he fights for every little thing. He asked me about six months ago, ‘Dad, what does it mean to be handicapped?’ I said, ‘I think it’s something that happens to other people.’ We never focus on what he can’t do but what he can do,” said Keith. “He’s a typical boy. Every day he gets up and makes the most of every single moment.” The Segway cost $8,000, much less than a wheelchair and specialized van would cost, and has lower maintenance costs. The Segway can be easily transported in the family car. The Shriners of B.C. and Yukon Vernon Shrine Club #7 provided the entire cost of the Segway. There has now been an application made to see if Riley can have further treatment at

It makes it difficult for any party to get a majority,� he said. “I do believe that parliament is somewhat broken. What we are seeing is a big influence of the media on public policies. It’s been skewed as it’s been messaged out by the media. We’ve got to get the facts out. It’s important to try to work together.� Brown said, “The New Democrats have always worked with minority governments and we get things done, things like health care and pensions.� Francis said her party is not afraid of collaboration. “Politicians can be very uncivil to each other. We must agree to treat each other with respect and work toward cooperation in the House of Commons.� Crockett noted that the Harper government could have had the sup-

fuel prices which affects truckers who are going broke because of high fuel costs. The last chamber question asked candidates what they would do to reduce the federal deficit. Francis outlined the Liberal plan to reduce the deficit, lower tax rates and introduce spending discipline while Mayes explained the necessity of government spending to help the country recover from the recent recession. Brown focussed on the current government for spending wastefully and the lack of high-paying jobs. Crockett agreed that Canadian manufacturing jobs are being given away and that any increased tax burden should not fall on the middle classes. His party favours a carbon tax to decrease demand on fossil fuel, with relief for rural users. The first question from the floor was emotional: “I don’t think I can make a difference anymore. I’m tired of the dirt digging. We didn’t send you to do that. You all have good ideas. What would you do to co-

to oil we will have problems. The goal of the Green Party is to move us gradually off oil to renewable energy sources,� said Crockett. He added that this can be done as shown in Sweden where 44 per cent of the electricity is from the wind and in Germany where wind and solar power technology is creating hundreds of thousands of new jobs. Francis said: “We need cleaner oil sands development in the process of reducing dependence on fossil fuels, government regulations and incentives to invest in emerging technologies.� Mayes spoke about his government’s bill to provide penalties for gas price gouging and the goal to have 90 per cent of electric generation be carbon free by 2020. “The high price of oil is good in that it is forcing us to change our ways. We have to think about the oil brokers who look for excuses to drive prices up.� Brown talked about the carbon tax which is set to go up and increase

The last question allowed from the floor seemed to generate the most interest at the Lumby All Candidates Forum Wednesday. Neville O’Grady asked all the candidates what their parties would do about GMOs (genetically modified organisms), which are banned in several countries around the world, and how GMOs will affect Canadian farmers’ ability to sell their produce internationally. “This is a life and death struggle,� said O’Grady. All candidates, Greig Crockett of the Green Party; Janna Francis of the Liberals; Colin Mayes of the Conservatives; and Alice Brown, speaking for Nikki Inouye, the NDP candidate who could not be present because she is taking a short university course in Toronto, responded to the question. “The scientific community has researched and approved GMOs but it does need to be monitored,� said Mayes. An audience member commented, “How are you going to control it? You can’t stop the wind.� Crockett said simply, “The Green Party says no to GMOs.� Brown said that the NDP is against GMOs and is also concerned about increasing electromagnetic radiation in the environment. Francis admitted that she has heard science on both sides of the argument. “I would take a more active role in government in dealing with this.� The All Candidates Forum was hosted by the Lumby Chamber of Commerce and moderated by president Bill Maltman and director Dwayne Hackett. There were about 40 people in attendance. Each candidate had a chance to make an opening statement, then answered questions from the chamber and then the floor. A chamber question concerned the price of gas, which is much higher than in other oil-producing countries. The candidates recognized the seriousness of the issue as well as that of sustainability and the use of fossil fuel on the environment. “Fuel is the basis to our economy and so long as we are held hostage

port of parliament at the time of the budget and that no other government in Commonwealth history has been found in contempt of parliament, which means that the government was not providing sufficient information to parliament as seen by the other political parties. Crockett would like see some form of proportional representation in parliament which promotes cooperation. The candidates were also asked about how they would help solve local issues. Crockett said it was as simple as talking to people. Mayes stood on his government’s accomplishments and contact with local leaders. “Nikki has indicated to me that she intends to have an open-door policy,� said Brown. Francis said, “For me, it is about listening, it is about engagement.� There were still a number of people with questions when it was time for the candidates to sum up. “We’re in this election because the government was found in contempt of parliament. To me, that’s a very serious issue,� said Francis, citing a number of government services that were shut down without consultation, including the office of the Veterans’ Ombudsman. Crockett said, “ The big question is who are you going to trust with democracy?� Mayes asked voters to look at his government’s record. “Why isn’t parliament working? People are criticizing our leader. We have been getting the job done for Canadians. There was no reason to have this election. It could have waited for another 18 more months.� Brown re-iterated the NDP record of getting things done when in a balance of power in parliament.

Project manages irrigation use RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Farmers may be able to tap into new technology as a way of using water more efficiently. Greater Vernon’s water utility is one of three agencies participating in the Okanagan irrigation management program. “We’re ready to start with a few farmers in June,” said Arnold Badke, the North Okanagan Regional District’s engineering general manager, of implementation. The objective of the computerized program is to develop a model that calculates irrigation needs. As part of the process, water sources have been considered as have the needs of specific crops. Climate change has also been considered. “It allows the model to look into the future as to how much water we will need under different conditions,” said Ted van der Gulik, with the Ministry of Agriculture’s sustainable agriculture management branch. Farmers can log into the data base and look at their water meter readings and how much water allocation they have left for their property. “It helps guide how much water you should use,” said van der Gulik. Information can also be sent out during droughts. “All of these things are there to help people do a better job,” said van der Gulik of irrigating. Besides Greater Vernon, the other participants in the program are Summerland and the Glenmore Irrigation District in Kelowna. Involvement in the initiative has cost Greater Vernon $10,000 this year. Data monitoring stations are located in the BX, Coldstream and the Bella Vista area. Of the total water use in the entire Okanagan Valley, 65 per cent of

“We’re ready to start with a few farmers in June.” — Arnold Badke it goes to agriculture while another 20 per cent goes towards landscape irrigation, such as golf courses, parks and yards. “If we’re going to

use water better in the Okanagan, it’s about managing irrigation,” said van der Gulik. “In Greater Vernon, agriculture may be higher than 65 per cent

because you have a lot of agricultural use here.” There is broad support at the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee for the program but there are some

concerns about the dependence on computers to access information. “Not all users will be computer literate,” said director Ted Osborn. There are already plans for training seminars to familiarize people with the program. “It’s easy to use once you know it but the initial step could be overwhelming,” said director Tom Ouchi.

Whiplash Or Neck Injury? Ongoing Pain? Whiplash occurs when the muscles, ligaments, and tendons of the neck and upper back are damaged from a sudden impact that whips the head forward and then backward, or from side to side. The curve and alignment of the neck may be altered, causing pain and decreased neck movement. This type of injury can have many causes, from sports impacts to slips on icy surfaces, but by far the most common cause is a motor vehicle accident. Most people don’t realize that even low-speed, low-impact collisions can cause serious, long-term whiplash injuries. The most common symptoms for whiplash injuries are pain in the neck and upper back region. A headache can often be the main complaint, interfering with a person’s ability to work or go about their daily activities. Sometimes, when the damage irritates the delicate nerve roots of the spine, a person can experience pain, tingling, or weakness radiating into the shoulders, arms, and hands. It is important to keep in mind that sometimes these symptoms take days or even weeks to be experienced. The focus of spinal corrective care for whiplash involves re-establishing and strengthening the normal position of the vertebrae, muscles and ligaments of the neck. This allows the tissues to heal with proper alignment of the neck—the goal being to restore full range of motion and to limit any permanent damage from occurring. If whiplash damage is left uncorrected, it is possible that the natural curve of the neck can be lost, leading to wear-and-tear of the neck joints. Over time, this causes the disks in the neck to break down, and the movement-limiting bone growths of osteoarthritis to occur. If you have experienced a whiplash accident or suffer from any of the above symptoms, you might benefit from visiting qualified Doctor of Chiropractic for an evaluation. We would love it if we could help you!

Tolko rallies behind quake relief RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A North Okanagan company with strong ties to Japan is playing a major role in earthquake relief. Tolko Industries has donated $100,000 to the Red Cross to help victims of the earthquake and tsunami that devastated a number of Japanese towns. “We have a pretty long history in Japan of selling to customers,” said John Langley, export sales general manager. “There are personal relationships there.” The Vernon company has four employees based in Tokyo who market a variety of products.

“There are personal relationships there.” — John Langley Tolko is among five B.C. forest firms that have contributed a total of $500,000 to Red Cross for medical supplies, blankets, food, water and other materials. “On a humanitarian basis, we wanted to do something to help,” said Langley. The corporate donations also leveraged the B.C, government to provide another $500,000 to relief efforts. The new funding brings the government’s Red Cross contribution

to $1 million. Tolko is also in discussions with Japan to provide reconstruction assistance. “We’ve been trying to hold the line on pricing and to expedite shipping of product to Japan,” said Langley. Negatively impacting reconstruction is the fact that some of Japan’s mills were wiped out by the tsunami. “There’s a big shortage of plywood in Japan,” said Langley. “At our mills in this area, including

Celebrating with you…

VJH tunes into $175,000 CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Turning on the television has provided a major boost to health care in the North Okanagan. Telus has donated $175,000 to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation’s Building a Tower of Care campaign for medical equipment. “The Telus team members are proud to enable important community infrastructure projects like the hospital expansion that benefit the communities where our staff lives, works and serves,” said Steve Jenkins, Telus general manager. “When I would ask the technicians what they were doing today, they would say, ‘I’m going to build a hospital today.’ It is important to us to give where we live.” Starting last March, Telus provided a $100 donation to the hospital

“It is important to us to give where we live.” — Steve Jenkins in the name of every new Telus TV customer in Vernon, Coldstream, Lavington and Lumby. “We are so appreciative that Telus is behind the campaign,” said Laurie Postill, Building a Tower of Care cochairperson. The donation will go towards equipping and naming the conference room on the ambulatory care floor and the Care by Parent room in the women’s and children’s health services department. “We are very happy and excited about having the Telus conference room,” said Penny Liao, manager of ambulatory care services at VJH. “It will give the nursing staff a place to dis-

cuss patient care issues and practices as well as a place for education and professional development.” The room will also be used for teleconferencing and may be used by medical students who are training at the hospital to connect with the UBCO medical school. M i c h e l l e Rotenburger, women’s and children’s health services manager, said the Care by Parent room will allow parents to remain at the hospital with sick children. Yolanda Short, who is project co-ordinator for the new tower and will return to the position as manager of women’s and children’s

health services, is also delighted with the new Care by Parent room. “We’re often in the position where parents want to be closer to their baby,” she said. “This will be a place with a bed, bathroom and somewhere they can leave their belongings. We have people who come from other areas who really need something like this to keep the connection of the family unit which is so healthy for compromised babies,” she said. Short said the Telus donation will have a lasting benefit. “Generations of families in Vernon have been born in the present building,” she said. “My three children were born there, and a lot of people have pleasant memories there but we will be able to create the same feeling with more efficient and effective care in the new building.”

Happy Easter, I think

I

f it seems like everything’s coming up late this year, that’s only because it is. As we wait for spring to show for real, six weeks after it appeared on the calendar, it sure seems like Easter took its sweet time to get here (especially seeing how our last statutory holiday was Jan. 1, are you listening Premier Christy Clark?). And after 15 seconds of research on the Web I’ve discovered that Easter Sunday is indeed only one day earlier than the last possible date it could be. Don’t ask what Website that was though, because that would’ve taken 16.5 seconds of research and I’m facing an early deadline due to the holiday, but I’m Glenn Mitchell pretty sure it’s right. According to this Website the following is true: “Easter Sunday is the Sunday immediately following the first full moon after the vernal (spring) equinox, unless that coincides with the Jewish Feast of Passover, in which case it is moved to the next Sunday. It can fall anywhere between March 22 and April 25.” OK, if you must know I think it’s About.com. There, don’t say I don’t do the research or give credit when credit is due. I think I’ve looked up this information before, and even shared it with readers before, but I keep forgetting because a revolving statutory holiday is a strange and wonderful thing. Plus I can just look at the calendar every year to find out when it is – it’s just the truly curious who want to know why, or those who need to fill a space in the paper for Easter Sunday. But then can you always trust your calendar? Or some Website you’ve never heard of before for that matter? I remember a few years ago I bought a calender off a fellow employee for one of his kid’s fundraisers. You know, I try to do my part and at least I can use a calendar, unlike many other fundraising purchases. Anyway I promptly put it on my wall, having no reason to think it wasn’t like any other calendar

that I’ve purchased and put blind faith in, including telling me when to tell the world when daylight saving time begins (which changed a couple years ago throwing my clock radio totally out of whack). Well, the calendar in question didn’t have any trouble with the sometimes tricky launch of daylight saving time (hello Saskatchewan) but when I turned the page to March there was definitely something amiss. According to this particular minor hockey calendar there were only 30 days in the great month of March. Now I hadn’t received any press releases informing me of this possible fact, plus I had a bit of an inside track seeing how my birthday was on March 31 (which if this new bit of information were true would make me an April fool for goodness sake, not that there’s anything wrong with such a birthday, ahem), so I was highly suspicious that my trusty calendar may have benefitted charity but was now of no value to yours truly. Sure enough I flipped ahead to see it also had only 30 days in July and August as well. I then confidently declared the calendar makers were either incompetent or Mayan, or both, neither of which helped my situation, and tossed it in the recycling and went back to my trusty realtor’s calendar, which was free by the way. And what information to trust is even more of a tricky situation these days, what with so many sources on the World Wide Web, plus a plethora of TV channels, apps, etc. etc. Not to mention if you’re actually following the federal political campaign, ahem. Possible coalitions, and even separatism and crime rates, seem like phoney issues to me, the parties’ stances will change if they happen to gain power and then try to hold onto it, once again. Who do you trust, indeed? And then just this week I read in the paper that John Steinbeck’s Travels with Charley travelogue has been debunked as mostly fiction, if not all fiction. Even his sons and a Steinbeck biographer tend to agree with this latest revelation about one of America’s greatest writers. Obviously he should’ve just stayed on the fiction side of the library. Heavy sigh. Oh well, try to have a happy Easter anyway. If it actually is Easter, that is.

There’s no shortage of hotbutton issues clamouring for government attention as a possible provincial election looms. But there’s an even bigger elephant in the room. B.C.’s legal system is in big trouble. Funding cuts dating back to 2003 have reduced the number of sitting judges, fuelling a trial backlog that increasingly lets criminals go free because of unconstitutional delays. The result? More than 2,100 cases are now at risk of being tossed out of court due to waits that threaten to violate the accused’s right to be tried within a reasonable time. Savvy defence lawyers are exploiting the dysfunction in the system to their advantage. Accused criminals – some charged with serious crimes – are getting away without having to face their victims or be accountable for their actions. The considerable efforts of police officers are being wasted, not to mention the taxpayer money used to pay them for investigations, forensic work and testimony that are all for naught once the suspect walks. But perhaps the hardest hit are the victims – regular people impacted by crime who have no choice but to rely on a deteriorating legal system for relief. The verdict on the possibility of a quick fix is grim. But aside from health care, one would be hard-pressed to identify an issue that cuts across all walks of life and has, directly or indirectly, affected nearly everyone. If Premier Christy Clark is serious about her “Putting Families First” platform, fixing B.C.’s debilitated justice system must be among her top priorities. —Surrey Leader/Black Press

Hospital beds needed now

I

t is shocking to learn that there is no plan to increase the total number of acute-care hospital beds at Vernon Jubilee Hospital, and that our provincial government and Interior Health Authority are unwilling to commit to a date to complete the two care floors and two operating rooms that are shelled in at the new patient care tower. The time to complete this work is now, not some vague time in the future. As are many other people in the Vernon area, I am in constant pain from arthritis while impatiently waiting out my turn on VJH’s list for joint replacement surgery. I was put on the list in August 2010 and told that there would be about a nine-month wait for surgery, which would bring the surgery month to May 2011. Now, I find out that my doctor was only able to perform two such surgeries last month because his already prepared patients were cancelled at the last minute due to overcrowding in the hospital, a shortage of staff, and/or no available acute-care beds. At present, he is attempting to operate on those who were booked in May and June 2010 and had their surger-

CURB CALL The city in its wisdom last fall installed asphalt curbs on Okanagan Landing Road. The first one at the entrance to the boat launch. This curb restricts making a lefthand turn with a boat and trailer from the Landing Road because you have to make a wide turn to enter and exit. The second curb with a crosswalk from Paddlewheel Park to Bench Road. which goes no where. The crosswalk would serve a better purpose if it was moved in front of Relic's store for pedestrians to use in the summer from the park. The third is an island curb in front of a residence where our mailboxes are. This curb serves no useful purpose. It took away the four parking spots we had to pick up our mail. It creates traffic congestion and poor visability for cars entering from Peters Road onto the Landing Road when residences are picking up mail. All the above mentioned curbs narrow the roadway and make it difficult for the snow plow to properly clear the road of snow, especially by our mail boxes. This leaves a pile of snow to cross to get our mail. All the curbs installed are a waste of our taxes. The pavement could have been put to better use by filling all the pot holes on Okanagan Landing Road and putting a road shoulder for a walkway.

ies cancelled last month. Heaven only knows when my turn will come up or if my finally scheduled surgery will be postponed at the last minute. I have had to forego my desire to fly to Europe to be with my only daughter who is expecting her first child. Nor will I be able to be there for the baptism in June. I’m sure many others on the waiting list have similar stories

I went to city hall to inquire why these curbs were installed. I was given a phone number to call. I had to leave a voice mail and have not received a phone call to this date from the city. Al Kitzman HYDRO CONCERNS The recent article concerning Minister Coleman's plan to remove two old dams that require expensive upgrades sounds like a good idea. The cost of doing so would shed light on the decision but I applaud him for his efforts in reining in B.C. Hydro's rate increases. I hope this is not just a smoke screen to placate voters that are worried about the impact these rate increases will have. I understand that Minister Coleman has struck a panel to review these planned rate increases which are not affordable by many residents. The cost increases will push up prices of goods and services as well. The consumer is going to be hit for the full amount of these increases not just on his electricity usage. He needs to look at other places where he can cut the cost of electricity for British Columbians and I have two suggestions for him: Firstly, abandon the carbon tax. This tax is based on the assumption that we are causing the climate

to change by burning fossil fuels to generate electricity. There is no doubt we are experiencing climate change. Over the eons, the climate has changed. Sometimes it warms and sometimes it cools. Please, do not fool yourself that placing a tax on the use of electricity is going to affect the way the climate changes. The sun is doing that for us. Our ability to alter the climate is so infinitesimally small that it is ridiculous to try regardless of what Al Gore and opportunistic scientists proclaim. Please take the time to educate yourself as to what a group of scientists who have no vested interest in the AGW scare are saying. Read the website Friends of Science. Secondly, stop funding alternate energy projects. These projects cost as much as five times what traditional sources of electricity cost and, with the exception of geo-thermal, are environmentally damaging too. If a project is economically viable and competitive, it will be proposed by business and if the Environmental Review Board wills it, the project will go ahead at no extra cost to consumers. Once a subsidy is used to initiate a project, we will be stuck with it for ever. Now that Gordon Campbell has resigned, it is time for a fresh look at these initiatives. Let's hope Premier

of lives put on hold while enduring this interminable and painful waiting. This is not to mention the frustration surely experienced by doctors who are willing and able to perform such surgeries and continually face cancellations and delays. I feel strongly that the Ministry of Health must fund the Interior Health Authority to complete construction, provide the staff and open the new in-patient wards and operating rooms in the new tower at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Please, will all those concerned with this intolerable situation at Vernon Jubilee Hospital write a letter of protest to the following: Minister of Health Michael de Jong, Room 337, Parliament Building, Victoria, B.C., V8V 1X4 Vernon Monashee MLA Eric Foster, 3209 31st Ave., Vernon, B.C., V1T 2H2 Norm Embree, chairman of the board, Interior Health Authority, 220-1815 Kirschner Rd., Kelowna, B.C.

Christy Clark means it when she says she wants input from citizens. Bob Reid GRAVEL PIT As one of the residents referred to in the recent article, I would like to reply to the ongoing issue regarding the Rosebush gravel pit and Coldstream Ranch. It is true that the ranch is part of our history. However, that is not the only reason we as residents live in Coldstream. Coldstream is a beautiful place to live, with rural living being a big draw to the area. However, parts of the ranch are dug up so much that it is an ongoing, not only unsightly commercial mess, but also, a commercial venture that brings with it, noise and dust that goes from predawn to after dark most days. If this was not an apparent viable commercial venture because of the gravel deposits in this rural area, would the ranch still be digging up agriculture land? This is supposed to be an agriculture area, yet this gravel pit is being allowed to operate in spite of ALR orders /guidelines issued to the contrary? We keep asking why those in authority with the power to enforce the ongoing infractions apparently keep turning a blind eye? In Coldstream, the motto is Rural

Living at its Best. Nulli secundus — Second to none — is on the Coldstream logo. Think about it the next time you are standing in a ballot box. A. Ramsey

School projects await funding KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

With mechanical system upgrades planned for buildings throughout the Vernon School District, it still remains to be seen if the Ministry of Education will come through with capital funding for the projects. Mechanical systems are due to upgrade at Okanagan Landing elementary, Charles Bloom secondary and at the board office. As well, the district is still

waiting for approval for the replacement of school buses. “We submitted our plans a year ago and we still don’t know the status yet of our 2010/11 plan, but we have a list of projects in place,” said Randy Hoffman, at Tuesday’s district board meeting. “The government doesn’t know yet, so it’s wait a see season at the moment. “And we haven’t yet received instructions for our 2011/12 capital plans.”

Fish-Out ready to hook kids

On March 15, districts received word on their Annual Facilities Grant, with the Vernon School District allocated $1,676,604, close to last year’s grant. Projects under review for use of this money include: site and parking lot improvements at various locations; roof replacements as per schedule of recommendations; painting to maintain exterior and interior paint cycles along with exterior upgrades as

per the preventative maintenance program; flooring program; electrical and mechanical upgrades. At the May board meeting, trustees will be

required to pass a capital bylaw for some of these projects because some portions of the AFG funding has been deemed by the ministry as capital.

YOU AND THE LAW SPOUSE CAN GET RETROACTIVE SUPPORT By Janice Mucalov, LL.B.

Morning Star Staff

Over 10,000 sq.ft. of greenhouses to choose from

If you apply for child and/or spousal support, you might also get a lump sum as “retroactive” support for the previous months or years when you should have received support in the past. Consider the following recent case. Sofia and Stewart lived together for four years. After she moved out with their child, he voluntarily paid her $500 month as child support. About five months later, he started paying her another $500 month as spousal support. A year after they separated, she applied for a court order for child and spousal support. The BC Court of Appeal (which treated their common-law relationship like a marriage) upheld the trial judge’s decision. Stewart was ordered to pay Sofia $1,119 month in child support, plus retroactive child support of $26,567. He was also ordered to pay $2,169 month as spousal support for five years, plus retroactive spousal support of $68,429. The retroactive awards took into account what he had already previously paid.

The court determined that Sofia had a reasonable excuse for not formally claiming support until a year after she and Stewart separated. About five months after they split, they had specifically discussed the issue of going to court, and he convinced her not to do so. He also didn’t fully disclose his financial position to her and persuaded her that he was already meeting his support obligations. The court also decided that Stewart was guilty of “blameworthy conduct” of the sort described in the D.B.S. case. That case said that “a payor parent cannot intimidate a recipient parent in order to dissuade him/her from bringing an application for child support” nor “mislead a recipient parent into believing that his/her child support obligations are being met when (s)he knows that they are not.” As well, Sofia’s income was meagre and she had debts, so retroactive support would help their child, said the court. And finally there was no evidence that a retroactive order would cause any hardship for Stewart.

How far back should retroactive support reach? The Supreme The Court of Appeal said that E. Cristina Court of Canada in D.B.S. fawhile not exceptional, retroactive Cabulea voured the date at which “effecorders are also not automatic. It tive notice” is given, i.e., “any then referred to an earlier Supreme Court of Canada case known as D.B.S. indication by the recipient parent that child v.

The hardest part about taking part in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer cycling jaunt for Vernon’s Tim Fitzgerald isn’t the training, or the preparation. The hardest part for Fitzgerald, who will join a couple of thousand other cyclists in the twoday Vancouver-to-Seattle excursion June 18 and 19, is coming up with the $2,500 each rider must raise that benefits the B.C. Cancer Foundation. “The event stands to make $5 million, 2,000 riders at $2,500 each,” said Fitzgerald, 51, married and a father of three boys who runs his own electrical services company. “A lot of people are inundated with financial requests right now. There are a lot of things going on, and I’ve just been finding it difficult.” Since he turned 50, Fitzgerald has been about giving back to the community. Twice he has gone to Nicaragua and donated his time with a group called Fuente de Vida. The group does volunteer work in the northern part of the country, installing water systems and solar lighting at an orphanage. Now, Fitzgerald wants to continue giving back by taking part in the charity ride. Funds from the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer support cancer research at the B.C. Cancer Agency. His mother passed

Fitzgerald first heard about the ride on a TV commercial, and is undaunted by the 260-kilometre trip which will use side routes instead of travelling down I-5 in Washington. He’s been a recreational bike rider for a couple of years now, completing a couple of trips up to Silver Star. One day last summer he rode his bike 160-kilometres from Vernon to Oliver. “I ride a couple of thousand Ks in the summer, and train indoors on a bike trainer in the winter,” said Fitzgerald, who has yet to put his bike out on the road this spring, waiting for the roads to get a little clearer of all the winter debris. “I love cycling.

KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

While the Vernon School District is doing all it can to reduce its carbon footprint, it still ended up paying out more than $70,000 to offset the amount of carbon dioxide it produces. At Tuesday’s district board meeting, secretary-treasurer Randy Hoffman explained the process to trustees that is ensuring the district is compliant with legislative and regulatory responsibilities, including the Greenhouse Reduction Targets Act, The Carbon Tax Act, the Carbon Neutral Government Regulation and Climate Action Charter. “We do actually receive the carbon tax back for diesel fuel and gasoline that is used in the transportation of students, so even though we have to pay at the pump, we do recover some of it,” he said. The district filed its claim to recover the carbon tax for the 2010 calendar year of $51,224.54 for 145,489 litres of diesel and 35,474.5 litres of gasoline. On March 31, a carbon offset purchase order was issued to Pacific Carbon Trust for $73,283.29 including an HST value of $7,851.78, which is the cost to offset 2,617.24 tonnes of carbon dioxide. Hoffman said this calculation is prepared using the governmentmandated Smarttool program, which costs the district 48 cents per student annually. “The CO2 is calculated by the natural gas, propane and electric power used in our buildings, the amount of copy and print paper we consume — which was 203 tonnes; and mobile fuel combustion,” he said. Pacific Carbon Trust is a Crown corporation, created to deliver greenhouse gas offsets to help clients reduce their carbon footprint. It offers carbon offsets, measured as one metric tonne of carbon dioxide or equivalent that is reduced or removed from the atmosphere as a result of emission-reducing activities. A carbon offset represents a reduction of greenhouse gas emis-

sions generated by activities, such as improved energy efficiency, that can be used to balance the emissions from another source, such as a plane trip. “The significant area for us is our buildings: retrofitting and new buildings using current green technology,” said Hoffman. “We also use funding from the annual facilities grant to undertake mechanical retrofits and building exterior work to reduce heating and air conditioning requirements. Over the past few years, work has been done at Kidston, JW Inglis, Okanagan Landing, BX, Harwood and Mission Hill schools. As well, the district has received funding for a lighting upgrade at Fulton under the Public Sector Energy Conservation program between the provincial government and BC Hydro. “Other options would be a Ministry of Education proposal of funding mechanical upgrades by using AFG funds would be a welcome initiative and not sending money to PCT and using the money for additional conservation projects or having access to the funds collected by PCT for projects,” said Hoffman. The district has received recognition from BC Hydro for its commitment to energy conservation. “Trustees are aware that various school districts have addressed concerns to the ministry respecting use of student funding to offset the costs of not achiev-

ing a zero carbon footprint without funding to address carbon costs and the mandate of Pacific Carbon Trust versus the ability of school districts to access funding from

them to reduce our carbon footprint. “My recommendation is to do what other districts have done and talk to the ministry about why this has to be done.”

Lake Country debates orchard camps RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Lake Country residents who turn their orchards into campsites may face some tough rules. Council members spent considerable time Tuesday discussing concerns associated with recreational vehicles and tents being located on farm land. “We will look at some kind of regulations,” said Mayor James Baker. Under the provincial Agricultural Land Commission, up to 10 campsites are permitted per orchard. However, the municipality has received complaints from Oyama residents about campfires and vehicles. There is also a concern that some of the roads leading to the orchards don’t meet standards to accommodate heavy traffic. “We want to support people making a

tions on ALR will be forwarded to Council for consideration. After a waiting period of seven days, council can withhold further applications for a period of 30 days. During those 30 days, council must consider the application and decide whether to withhold the permit for a further 60 days or issue the permit with conditions that are in keeping with public interest and the bylaw that is under preparation. By implementing some regulations, Baker hopes the district can reduce some of the conflict surrounding campgrounds. Baker isn’t convinced commercial campgrounds are making it more viable for residents to operate farms. “A lot of the people putting in RV parks are not necessarily relying on agriculture for living,” he said.

Water use charges questioned

RICHARD ROLKE

“Commercial and domestic customers are subsidizing the use of this water.”

Morning Star Staff

There are demands for all water users to be billed equally. Director Gyula Kiss is opposed to the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee charging six businesses a lower rate for water than other businesses and residences. “Commercial and domestic customers are subsidizing the use of this water,” he said. “It’s incumbent on us to bring these people up to the appropriate rate and they can pass the cost on to their customers. The domestic user has no place to transfer the cost.” The six businesses are billed about onethird of the cost the public is levied. Of the six businesses, two are golf courses, two are nurseries, one uses water for its cooling system and another is a tourist attraction. The operations depend on large volumes of water. “They don’t need treated water,” said Al Cotsworth, utility manager, of why these businesses are billed differently than other merchants or residents. GVAC has instructed staff to provide information on various classes of water use. “We need to develop a policy on different uses, look at what we have done before and how do we bring them together,” said director Doug Dirk. “We need policies on

Students showcase their talents Morning Star Staff

Students of art, drama, music, dance, trades, media, culinary arts, photography and physical education are showcasing their talents and hard work as they each compete for $1,000 at the Vernon school district scholarship competition. Students will make their presentations at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre and Vernon Recreation Complex over three days, Wednesday to Friday. “The event has grown better each year and this year we are again very excited to showcase the hard work and talents of our graduating students,” said district scholarship chairman Joe Rogers. The public is welcome to watch as performing students showcase their talents at the Performing Arts Centre Wednesday from 6 p.m. to 9:15 p.m. “The students have been working on their projects for a good portion of the year, with

some of the projects spanning multiple years,” said Rogers. “They have been working with dedicated sponsor teachers who offer them ongoing support, advice and guidance.” Aside from the performances, all participants assemble a display that shows their work and completed projects. This part of the competition takes place at the Vernon Recreation Complex and is open to the public Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. The district project scholarships are open to all Grade 12 students at the five secondary schools in the Vernon school district. The Ministry of Education provides each winning recipient with an award of $500 upon wining the scholarship competition and another $500 when the student enrolls at a post secondary institution. Each of the participants will be judged by local three judges, each

of whom has expertise in the specific projects. In addition, there are two secondary judges, and this year each of the participants will serve as a secondary judge for one other participant. “We rely so much on the high level of community expertise to serve as our judging panel. Our community experts have provided this service each year and have provided wonderful feedback to our students,” said Rogers. “We would like to publicly acknowledge their contributions to this event.” The district also continues to focus on the assessment for learning, a process of engaging students more in their learning. The showcase is a perfect time to use this process with high performing students, said Rogers. “We used this process last year and the participants found it to be very valuable to talk with other students about their scholarship project,” he

said. “Each year the participants receive feedback from their three judges and wait to see the tally of scores to determine the winners. This year they will have an opportunity to directly interact and provide feedback to another participant in what we believe will be a rich and meaningful experience.” Judging of the displays will take place at the Rec Complex Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. and Friday from 9 to 2 p.m. Judging of the performances will take place at the Performing Arts Centre Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. All sessions are open to the public and admission is free. “Please join us in celebrating the skills and talents of our Grade 12 students. We are very proud of each of them and we hope to see you there,” said Rogers.

Trail ‘Gingerly’ begins to take shape Morning Star Staff

TheMorningStar www.vernonmorningstar.com

A passion for cycling also means a lot of hard work. Fifty members of the North Okanagan Cycling Society recently put in 286-man hours into the Cosens Creek trail system at Kalamalka Lake Provincial Park. “The intermittent sunshine made the chilly rain, snow and wind easier to endure while the trails were cleared of fallen logs, brushed, raked and trimmed during the event organized by Brian Hamel, trail maintenance director,” said Darcy Trevelyan, a director. The first leg of the first mountain bike trail ever officially sanctioned by B.C. Parks in the North Okanagan was cut in. “It is a green trail called Gingerly and it was designed and applied for by Peter Dorey of Olympia Cycle and Ski,” said Trevelyan. “Once completed, it will take cyclists off Cosens Bay Road and the main multi-use trail on their way into the forest trails from the Cosens Bay parking lot.” A kiosk was installed at the bottom of Crosstown Traffic upon which the Cosens Creek trail map will soon be posted. “It will create a nice place to relax and enjoy the views after a hard ride before the climb back to Cosens Bay parking lot or up the switchbacks to red

Vipers seek series clincher GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

SPRUCE GROVE – A trio of one-minute wonders Thursday night at Grant Fuhr Arena had the Vernon Vipers on the brink of a third-straight berth in the Royal Bank Cup national Junior A hockey championships. Each of their goals – two from game MVP Dylan Walchuk and the overtime winner by Bryce Kakoske – all came near the first minute of a period as the Snakes outlasted the Spruce Grove Saints 3-2 in Game 5 of the Doyle Cup regional championships. The BCHL champion Vipers led the best-of-seven series 3-2 heading into Saturday night’s Game 6 where a win would allow them to defend their twotime national crown in Camrose, starting April 30. After Vernon gained the Spruce Grove zone on its first overtime possession, defenceman Max Mowat fired from the point and the rebound went right to Kakoske who scored 35 seconds into the extra frame. “Dave (Robinson) and Murph (Kyle Murphy) got after the puck right away and it squirted back to Mowat and the shot hit someone and I just happened to have a wide open net. It was like a nine iron, I just had a chop at it and it worked out well,” said a thick-bearded Kakoske. “That was a good way to finish it – right at the start of overtime. We didn’t want to go too far into it. We’ve played the last two nights so it’s good to get it over with quick.” Vernon needed just 66 seconds to hush 1,300 fans as Walchuk worked off the sidewall and, using a Saints’ defender as a screen, beat Vince Marozzi five-hole with a quick snapshot.

WolfPack lock up Ondrik For The Morning Star

KAMLOOPS – The Thompson Rivers University (TRU) WolfPack men’s basketball team has added another piece in their rebuilding program for next season by signing 18-year-old guard/forward Will Ondrik of Vernon. Ondrik played this past season with the B.C. AAA High School White Rock Christian Academy Warriors, where he averaged 18 points, seven rebounds and four assists. He played his senior year at WRCA after transferring from Vernon Secondary. “He is a 6-foot-7 kid who is very skilled,” said WolfPack head coach Scott Clark. “He can play facing the basket and do lots of things. He can shoot, he can bounce it, pass it and is a guy who has a big upside. I think he can get some minutes early in his career. ” Both Ondrik and Clark agree on what he should work on: getting stronger. “I have to get into the weight room for sure,” said Ondrik. Added Clark: “He has a decent frame and body right now but he can add to that. If he does that, he can really add to our basketball program.” Clark says the winning tradition of White Rock Christian can only rub off on Ondrik. “Their coach, John Dykstra, has done a great job with the high school program. That is one of the factors we are looking for: guys who come from winning programs who have a chip on their shoulder with something to prove. Ondrik is one of those players.” Dykstra has high praise for Ondrik. “Will was our go to guy this season depending on the team we were playing and our preferred matchups. Will played all five positions at different times throughout the season for us. “He is very skilled at beating his defender from the perimeter in oneon-one isolation situations, so we, of course looked for these opportunities as much as possible. This season, Will also worked on developing the ability to post up in the paint. Taking advantage of his size, jumping ability and touch around the rim.” “If this were the NBA draft, we

would have gotten a sleeper,” added Clark, who first noticed Ondrik at the B.C. Under 17 tryouts last season. “He might have been 6-4 or 6-5 at the time. Then I saw him late this year and was impressed with his size.” Dykstra believes he will have a fairly easy transition to CIS. “Will has been competing with CIS players in scrimmage settings the last two years. With all the WRCA alumni in the CIS or NCAA, the open gym runs are always packed with talent. I believe Will has the potential to one day be a CIS all-star calibre player. One on one, he’s as good a player you’ll find in the CIS. I anticipate Will being a CIS Rookie of the Year candidate next season.” Dykstra knows talent too, playing NCAA Division I basketball at Tennessee Tech University and Division II University of AlaskaAnchorage. Ondrik played junior high basketball against current WolfPack players Brett Rouault and Travis Beck, both Fulton Maroons grads. “They were very excited to find out that Will committed to our program,” said Clark. “It is great for us to get a local product to stay home. That is one of our mandates – to have the talented local kids not go somewhere else to play.” Clark doesn’t like to compare new players to current ones, but he is going out on a limb with Ondrik. “He could be a lot like Chas (Kok, fourth year, Lynden, Wa.). Chas is a guy who can do a little bit of everything. Sometimes he brings the ball up the court, sometimes he is the guy we are running the offence through or getting other kids open. Will is that type of a guy. He has a lot of flexibility to play forward or guard but is not a firm definition of both. Will is simply a basketball player.” Ondrik was considering UBCO, UBC, Trinity Western, University of Fraser Valley and Grant McEwen but decided to take Natural Resource Science at TRU instead. “It’s close to home, it has great facilities and a great coach.” Ondrik is the fourth new hoop face at TRU. The other three are from Las Vegas and the Lower Mainland.

Ian Dorval of the Vernon Kokanee Swim Club drives to the finish Sunday at the Kokanee Invitational which attracted more than 200 athletes from seven teams.

Kokanee show speed INGRID NEUMANN For The Morning Star

The Kokanee started their spring and summer racing at top speed last weekend at their annual Spring Invitational. There were seven teams in attendance with more than 200 swimmers. Said head coach Marc Tremblay: “The Kokanee swimmers were ready to go and if this meet is a prelude to the rest of the season, we will see more fast swimming from our swimmers. There were many new best times, and I believe that all the swimmers had at least one personal best time.” Swimmers Isabelle Waltar-Sacray, Asia Minnes and Sean Manchester achieved their respective Swim BC AA qualifying standard. Isbelle and Asia both qualified in the 200 breast while Sean qualified in the 200 free, 200 back and the 100 breast. This is the first step towards provincial championships and they are now eligible to compete in Kelowna at the B.C. AA meet in June. Kieran Grant, Taylor Kelly and Asia Minnes showed improvement in all of their races as Vernon finished third behind the Kamloops Classic and Kelowna’s Liquid Lightning. The Kokanee coaches were very pleased with the improvement shown by the swimmers, by their display of underwater kicking, and by some great turns. The Sunday Jamboree also saw some fast swimming by the Kokanee with coaches Renate Terpstra and Krysta Hauer ecstatic with the results. The following swimmers exhibited 100 per cent improvement in all of their events: Kaitlyn

Any bike will work Editor’s Note This is fourth in a series of how to run a triathlon leading up to the June 10 Mr. T’s Kids of Steel event. BY BRIAN TRAVELBEA For The Morning Star

You may think that you have to own an expensive triathlon bike to do a triathlon. Wrong! As long as your bike is in good running order you can enter any triathlon. Mountain bikes, BMX and single speed are acceptable. Yes, you can use your training wheels. The easiest way to make sure that all is well with your bike is to clean it. You can see if anything is broken or needs to be replaced. Tires should be pumped to the desired pressure and everything secure. It is a good idea to take your bike for a safety check at your local bike shop. The most important part of the equipment is your helmet. It must be CSA approved. Has it been dropped? It could be cracked and need to be replaced. It will be a very fine hairline crack on the inside of the helmet. Racing pedals with clip shoes are optional for adults only. By now you will have ridden your bike enough to toughen up your butt or at least make it tolerable for sitting on the seat for 30 minutes. The longest bike training session will be in Weeks 10 and 11. You will be riding for 75 minutes at that time. I also encourage all athletes to ride the bike course for Mr. T’s Triathlon from Week 8 on. This will give you a good indication on what to expect on race day. Check out

the maps on the website. vernonkostri.ws Technique: Pedalling is done pulling up with your hamstrings with one leg while the other leg is pressing down using the quad muscle and therefore making circles. Try doing this technique with one leg on a flat area. 16yrs & Adults: Swim - 1x week - 3x25m (breaststroke/backstroke/freestyle) 25m/each 4x50m - Rest /30sec after each 50m 1x100m Cool down 2x25m breaststroke & backstroke.

With two road wins in a row, Vernon had all the momentum heading into Saturday, but head coach Mark Ferner was taking nothing for granted. “This is a tough building to play in and they’ve proved it all year long. We just need to make sure we’re focussed and disciplined in our systems,” he said. “You just got to stay on course. Both teams play a similar style and you don’t want to give up a lot and you have to work for everything that you’re going to get. “(The difference between) winning and losing is very small. Just look at the game winner tonight. It was a shot that he couldn’t control the rebound and it could have landed on their stick, but it landed on ours.”

Skiers successful Morning Star Staff

Some local skiers have finished their season on the podium. The Silver Star Adaptive Snow Sports race team had a successful showing at the 2011 B.C.

Chelaine McInroy placed first in all three races in the women’s sitting division, and Les Ebl earned fourth and seventh in the men’s sitting division. In the giant slalom, standing category David McInroy took home the silver medal and a fourth place, while Justin Sigal claimed fourth in all three

events. Steven Linemayr and Colby Bell took 10th and 11th place. Darrell Koscielny and Dominique Borgeaud had some great runs but were unable to place. The McInroy siblings also took home the prestigious award for best junior male and adult female skier overall. “Our racers have trained very hard since the beginning of the season, and it showed in these races that the commitment and passion for the sport of the athletes and coaches have been rewarded,” said Colette Laplante, a SSASS coach.

Singing the songs of Ireland Morning Star Staff

With the lilting tunes of Ireland, Sally “O’Malley” Evans and Molly “Malone” Boyd are hoping to steal your heart away when they perform their Songs of the Emerald Isle show May 6 at Schubert Centre in Vernon. Evans and Boyd are well known throughout the Okanagan for their musical tribute to the songs of the Second World War. When they performed that show last November at the Schubert Centre to a full house they asked the audience if a spring show would be well-received and were met with resounding applause. So the two local musicians put their heads together and came up with a theme that features songs so beautiful that they will warm the cockles of your hearts and songs so full of the blarney they will have your “Irish eyes” smiling! According to Evans, being Irish is more than a nationality. “Being Irish is a state of mind — there is a little Irish in the best of us and not enough Irish in the worst of us,” she said. “Tickets to the performance would make a wonderful gift for your dear, sweet ‘Mither,’ in celebration of Mother’s Day.” This concert is a fundraiser for the Arthritis Society and there will be an

Royal Purple honours its members Morning Star Staff

The Order of Royal Purple Lodge #123 Vernon celebrated its 61st birthday March 16 with a celebration at the Elks Hall. In attendance were 13 Ladies from the Vernon branch and 23 from the Salmon Arm and Kelowna branches. “There was a wonderful homemade luncheon, jokes and games for everyone,” said Brenda Paul, the group’s historian. As well, Vernon Lodge’s Lady Teenie Humphrey was presented with her 50-year Jewelled Bar. “Congratulations, Lady Humphrey, and thank you for all the years of contribution to our Lodge,” said Paul. “Lady Humphrey turned 90 years young on March 2, 2011.” Earlier this month, Lady Peggy Read was presented with her 45-year membership bar. “This is a wonderful honour and shows what commitment Lady Peggy has to our Lodge,” said Paul. “Congratulations, Lady Peggy.”

Celebrate Drinking Water Week TOBY PIKE Special to the Morning Star

May 1 to 7 is Drinking Water Week in B.C. In recognition of this week, the Okanagan Basin Water Board has proclaimed Drinking Water Week in the Okanagan, encouraging people to “Get to know your H2O.” As citizens of the beautiful Okanagan, it’s important we recognize its beauty and value, and help conserve and protect it. We all share the same water in the Okanagan. All the waters of the Okanagan Basin – from the creeks and lakes, to the hidden waters underground – are connected, from Armstrong to Osoyoos. Unlike Vancouver and Victoria, the Okanagan doesn’t close off areas around its drinking water supplies. Instead, we are allowed to use the areas for recreation, this includes our big lakes in the valley bottom and the small ones up in the hills. So it’s important to understand that anytime we’re near water in the Okanagan, we are near someone’s drinking water and we need to be careful. One of the biggest problems facing our drinking water is recreation, whether it’s motor boats, houseboats, or other motorized vehicles. The waters are vulnerable to gas spills and leaks, and sewage spills. Smaller, shallower lakes are even more sensitive, because there is less water to dilute any

pollution. Cattle, horses, and even pets that relieve themselves in or near our water sources can also cause harmful bacteria growth that gets into our drinking waters. Motorized trail riding through creeks and streams and on the shores of small lakes stirs up dirt, and can take animal waste into the water which, again, affects the quality of someone’s drinking water. Another issue in the large lakes is stormwater pollution. Almost everything that enters storm sewers, including chemicals, dirt, cigarette butts, and other debris, goes directly into our creeks and lakes. This can hurt fish and other creatures that call these waters home, as well as our drinking water. There is only one water in the Okanagan. We swim in it, we play in it, we depend on it for our food production, and we drink it. Protecting our lakes and streams is good for our environment, but it also reduces the cost of treating our drinking water. We all share “One Valley. One Water.” It is up to each of us to do our part to protect this most precious resource, today and for future generations. A number of

Okanagan communities are holding Drinking Water Week events, including open houses at their water treatment plants. Celebrate with us! Learn more at www. okwaterwise.ca. O k a n a g a n WaterWise Tips to keep our water clean: In nature... When enjoying the back country, by foot, on horseback or ATV, stick to maintained trails in approved areas, and avoid going near or through streams and creeks. Avoid using soap in the backcountry (even biodegradable ones). The chemicals can harm fish and aquatic plants and cause algae blooms. If you use soap

for camping dishes, dump the soapy water far from any waterway. The ground will filter the soap before the dishwater makes its way back into our water system. Keep pets away from streams to prevent animal waste and silt from polluting the water. Leave no trace behind. Take out what you take in. In your yard... Wash vehicles at a car wash that recycles its water. If you must wash at home, use a trigger nozzle to not waste water and wash the car over grass. Your lawn will remove most chemicals before the water makes its way back to our lakes and streams. Sweep your sidewalk and driveway. Hosing washes pollutants into storm drains and streams. Reduce or eliminate use of fertilizers and pesticides on your lawn

and garden. In your home... Reduce use of household hazardous products and use less harmful alternatives. Medications and chemicals should not be flushed down the toilet or washed down the drain. Instead, take unused medications to any pharmacy. Check with your local regional district Waste Reduction Office to find appropriate disposal locations for paints and other chemicals. For more WaterWise tips, visit www.okwaterwise.ca. Okanagan WaterWise is an initiative of the Okanagan Basin Water Board. Toby Pike is a director with the Okanagan Basin Water Board.

CATHI LITZENBERGER Morning Star Columnist

This week is Holy Week in the Christian calendar. It’s the last week of Lent and is always the week before Easter. Holy week includes religious holidays of Palm Sunday, Maundy Thursday and Good Friday, and goes until, but not including Easter Sunday. It commemorates the last week of the earthly life of Jesus Christ according to canonical gospels. In the Jewish calendar, it is also the time of Passover, an eight-day holiday and festival that commemorates the story of Exodus in which the ancient Israelites were freed from slavery in Egypt. Together with Shavuot (Pentecost) and Sukkot (Tabernacles), Passover is one of the three pilgrimage festivals during which entire Jewish populaces historically make a pilgrimage to the Temple in Jerusalem. It is sometimes called the festival of unleavened bread. Breads are a big part of both Passover and Easter but Christians aren’t restricted to unleavened breads as Jewish people are. Today I have two recipes for the Jewish holiday of Passover; the first is a delicious prime rib and the second is a sweet matzo treat. For Easter celebrations, we have a wonderful braided Easter bread and a prize-winning baked ham which is sure to be a hit. Winning Holiday Baked Ham 1 cup maple syrup 1 cup orange juice 1 cup ginger ale 1/2 cup brown sugar 1/2 cup honey 1 (10 oz.) jar maraschino cherries, halved 1 (12 lb.) fully-cooked, bone-in ham 1 (15.25 oz) can pineapple slices in juice, drained 1 box round wooden toothpicks 1 large oven baking bag Preheat oven to 350 F. In a medium bowl, mix together the maple syrup, orange juice, ginger ale, brown sugar and honey. Stir in the juice from the maraschino cherries, and half of the cherries. Score the outer edge of the ham with a sharp knife in a diamond pattern. Cuts should be about 1/4-inch deep. This will allow the ham to soak up the juice. Place ham into an oven bag, and carefully pour the juice mixture over it, keeping all of the juice in the bag. It may look like there is too much juice, but the ham will soak it up while baking. Place the pineapple rings all over the top of the ham and secure with toothpicks; place cherries into centres of pineapple slices and secure with toothpicks also. Tie the top end of the bag closed with the ties provided, place in a large roasting pan, and cut a few small slits in the top of the oven bag. Bake ham for 2 hours in preheated oven. Internal temperature should be 160 F. Remove from bag to a serving plate, and let stand for 10 minutes before carving. Bread Machine Braided Easter Bread 1/4 cup warm water 1/4 cup butter, melted 1/2 (3.4 oz) pkg. instant vanilla pudding mix 1 cup warm milk 1 egg at room temperature, lightly beaten 1 tbsp. white sugar

Delicious food is an essential part of both religious and secular celebrations in cultures throughout the world. 1/2 tsp. salt 4 cups bread flour 1 (.25oz) pkg. active dry yeast 5 raw eggs, coloured if desired In the pan of your bread machine, combine water, melted butter, vanilla pudding, warm milk, egg, 1 tbsp. sugar, salt, bread flour and yeast. Set machine to Dough cycle; press start. When dough cycle is finished, turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and divide into 3 equal portions. Roll each piece into a long roll, about 36 inches long and 1-1/2 inches thick. Braid loosely, leaving spaces for the 5 coloured eggs. Seal the ends of the ring together and use your fingers to slip the eggs between the braids of dough. Preheat oven to 350 F. (175 C). Place loaf on a buttered baking sheet and cover loosely with a damp towel. Place in a warm place and let rise until double in bulk, about 45 minutes. Brush risen braid with melted butter. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until golden brown. Passover Garlic Prime Rib 1 (10 lb.) prime rib roast 10 cloves garlic, minced 2 tbsp. olive oil 2 tsp. salt 2 tsp. pepper 2 tsp. dried thyme Place the roast in a roasting pan with the fatty-side up. In a small bowl, mix together the garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and thyme. Spread the mixture over the fatty layer of the roast (or all over if you wish), and let the roast sit out until it is at room temperature, no longer than an hour. Preheat

oven to 500 F (260 C). Bake the roast for 20 minutes in the hot oven, then reduce the temperature to 325 F (165 C), and continue roasting for an additional 60 to 70 minutes. The internal temperature should be at 145 F (53 C) for medium rare. Allow the roast to rest for 10 to 15 minutes before carving so the meat can retain its juices. Recipe can be halved. Amazing Passover Chocolate Toffee Matzo 6 whole matzos 1 cup salted butter 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed, 20 oz. semisweet chocolate chips 1/2 cup chopped pecans Preheat oven to 325 F. Line baking sheets with foil or parchment paper; pinch edges into a lip to contain drips. Place the matzos onto the baking sheets, breaking them in half if needed. Melt the butter in a saucepan with the brown sugar over medium heat; bring to a boil and reduce heat. Simmer the mixture until thickened, about 5 minutes. Ladle the hot sugar mixture over the matzos, spreading with a rubber spatula. Bake in the preheated oven until the sugar mixture is bubbling and thick, about 20 minutes. Set aside to cool until the toffee coating is firm, about 15 minutes. Place the chocolate chips into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on low until the chips are just melted (do not let them overheat or scorch). Spread melted chocolate over the toffee-coated matzos; sprinkle chopped pecans on top. Place baking sheets into the refrigerator until treats are cold, about 30 minutes. Remove from the foil, break into pieces, and store in an airtight container in fridge or freezer. Yum!

The members of the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Auxiliary said merci, danke, xie xie, grazie, dykoyou and thank you to the volunteers and community organizations that help make the Garden Fair a success each year. “You made it possible for us to reach our goal of $165,000 to furnish a room in the new IC Unit. Thank you for your donations and support,” said Wendy Christensen, auxiliary past president. Colleen McEwan, director of the IC and emergency units, came to Vernon about a year ago and has been pleased to watch the new tower being built. “It’s going to be wonderful to move to the new space. Thank you from hospital management to the auxiliary for its big donation and for all the things it does all year, like the comfort funds for the patients,” she said. Natalie Moore, from the Auxiliary Knitting Group, and Betty Dingman, of the Auxiliary Craft Group, reminded people to come out to the Garden Fair to see what the groups have been working on all year. The Chilly Creakers Band, which will be playing at the Garden Fair, The Lavington Ladies Group, The Ukrainian Catholic Women’s League and the Ukrainian Women’s Association of the Orthodox Church and the Edelweiss Association brought donations.

Then it was expanded and I thought that would be good forever. I’m happy to see that we are keeping up to the need,” he said. The Garden Fair Committee members, Connie Lang, Yvonne Freedham, Sharon Rohner and Gerry Barker, are looking forward to a good event which usually raises

more than $10,000 for the auxiliary. New this year are independent vendors, along with the traditional favourites — baking, books, white elephant, crafts, jewelry, knitting, plants, kids’ entertainment, music by the Chilly Creakers and Second Wind Community Band and concessions. “Don’t forget to attend the Garden Fair on May 7, the day before Mother’s Day, from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at Polson Park.

Workshop help families cope with dementia Morning Star Staff

Planning is important in life, and especially for families dealing with the impact of Alzheimer’s disease. Caregivers may have to make health, financial and other personal decisions on behalf of their family members. That’s why the Alzheimer Society of B.C. recommends creating a representation agreement — a legal document covering these issues. Vernon families can get the information they need to get started, during the society’s free teleworkshop on Thursday at 7 p.m.

Q: A:

Is Tetanus still a problem?

Dr. Herbert Mehl

— A new session of beginner classes will start Date:

There are records that go back centuries describing the neurologic disease commonly referred to as tetanus. Due to the development of efficacious vaccines it is something we hardly ever see anymore. Recently the Vernon Vet Clinic saw a case in a horse. Tetanus is caused by a bacterium called Clostridium tetani. This organism is found in the soil worldwide and is able to form a spore in unfavourable conditions that is resistant to boiling water and most disinfectants. When soil containing these spores enters wounds or is carried on a needle into horse the conditions can become favourable and the bacteria grow. The toxins released by the bacteria cause the classic symptoms of muscle spasms and rigidity, “lockjaw” and protruding third eyelids. Treatment needs to be implemented quickly and is costly, labour intensive and very prolonged. The best treatment of course is prevention so don’t forget to update your horse’s tetanus vaccine if it is overdue! — Lily Miller, DVM

Dr. Lily Miller

Understanding Representation Agreements is a tele-workshop features guest speaker Joanne Taylor, executive director of Nidus Personal Planning, Resource Centre and Registry. She will talk about the importance of future planning, explain what a representation agreement is and how to make one, and answer questions. Pre-registration is required by Monday.

Lights meet their match with Millie Young cast get to dance and sing their way through the Roaring ‘20s KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Some thought it was chic and adorable, others thought it was odd and Sodom and Gomorrahble, or so goes the title song from the musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. The Roaring ‘20s was the decade of bobbed hair, jazz music, and going against societal norms. It was about sneaking a quick drink in the speakeasy, and smoking cigarettes out of those long filters. After the long-battled suffragette movement, and the First World War, women were starting to liberate themselves in a different manner –– raising their skirts and their fists at the establishment. Set in 1922 New York, Thoroughly Modern Millie, which will be presented by the Vernon Community Music School’s Lights of Broadway at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre May 6 and 7, captures those times in song, costume and story. It first saw life as a 1967 film starring Julie Andrews, and was translated to the stage as a Broadway musical in 2002, winning six Tony awards, including Best Musical. “I’ve always loved movies and theatrical productions that make me happy and am always looking for things the cast will connect with, and make the audience feel happy during and after they leave the show,” said Lights of Broadway’s director Charity Van Gameren, whose presentation of The Sound of Music last year was a resounding success and sold out all four of its performances. Describing Millie’s music as jazz, jazz, and more jazz, Van Gameren says she’s excited to present a musical set during the time when women were coming out and rebelling against what was normal

Brandon Dorsey (below) plays Millie’s paramour, Jimmy. in society. “They were throwing off their corsets,” she explained. “In the first 25 seconds of the play we see Millie go from long red hair in a frumpy farm dress to this sparkling outfit.” For Jenae Van Gameren, the young actress about to take on the role of the young Kansas girl who moves to New York City to find a husband, transforming herself from a farm girl into a flapper in the process, the ‘20s in New York is a little more exciting, and dangerous, if you will, than the hills of Austria circa 1930s. “Millie Dillworth is quite different from Liesl,” said Van Gameren about the character she played last year. “The Sound of Music brought us to our peak, but it’s exciting not to have to do the same thing two years in a row. We’ve gone from nuns to flappers, from singing requiems to Goodbye, Goody-Goody Girl! It really is quite the opposite.”

“These are show stoppers, the audience will love them,” said Charity. Providing a love diversion comes in the form of charming handyman Jimmy Smith (Brandon Dorsey). “She has her eyes set on the goal, but then Jimmy stumbles upon

Once Millie arrives in New York, she gets a job as a stenographer, and sets her sights on her new boss, Trevor Graydon III (played by Steve Braun, last seen as Danny in Powerhouse Theatre’s production of Grease), who here has to sing the mile-a-minute number The Speed Test. “It’s nice to sing in my voice register,” said Braun, referring to the higher pitched doo-wop songs he had to perform in Grease. “There’s a bit of everything in this show, romance, comedy and dancing.” With 15 songs in the mix, everyone in the cast gets their turn to shine –– there’s solos, quartets, duets, and ensemble jazz harmonies. In addition, Accentz Dance Studio, led by school owner Becky Martselos with Karina Hettler (Lights of Broadway’s choreographer), are leading a troupe of 15 tap dancers to perform in The Speed Test as well as the number, Forget About the Boy.

Millie, and a love triangle/polygon starts going on,” said Dorsey, whose deep baritone resonates when singing in the mostly female 18-member chorus. “Jimmy and Millie lead to romance, but their love story has some friction, and they don’t like each other off the bat, but you can tell there is this chemistry.” An even zanier side story ensues where Millie sets up residence, where she befriends Dorothy (Zoë Robinson), who moves from her glamorous, rich lifestyle in California, to try and make it in New York, and ends up at the Hotel Priscilla, a boarding house for aspiring actresses. There, their dreams are dashed by the villainous hotel proprietress Mrs. Meers (Brittney Wernicke.) “Everyone loves to hate her,” said Wernicke about her character. “The things she does are dreadful. She’s like Cruella de Vil, but it’s a lot fun to play her and let go.” Adding to the comic relief is New York socialite Muzzy Van Hossmere (Melissa Cochrane), whom Millie meets at a party. “She’s more of a superstar, a diva, who hangs out with the elite of New York,” said Cochrane. “(However,) she’s not originally from New York and has a rags to riches story. She’s more like a mother figure to Millie.” With sets that include an office, hotel, and a Manhattan apartment, set designer Dave Brotsky has been like Woody Allen trying to recreate 1920s’ New York architecture, studying about Art Deco, while his partner in life and design, Lorraine Johnson Brotsky, has created costumes that are the “bee’s knees,” said Charity. “I can’t wait for audiences to see the effort that has been put into this show. It’s upbeat and so much fun. Anyone who comes will be glad they did.” Thoroughly Modern Millie takes the stage at the Performing Arts Centre May 6 at 7 p.m. and May 7 at 2 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $25 for adults and $22 for students/seniors at the Ticket Seller, 549-7469, www. ticketseller.ca.

CHRIS SHIDELER The pace of medical research is astounding. We’ve heard much about stem cells over the past few years. Much controversy surrounded the subject initially because the stem cell sources was from fetuses. Now, stem cells taken from a 4x3 cm patch of a patient’s skin can be used to make blood identical to the patient’s own blood. This will open up all sorts of treatment opportunities. Exciting! It’s a few months into the New Year and some of our sincerely-made plans to exercise may have not stuck. Since walking is an easy exercise and beneficial to our health, buy a pedometer and wear it daily. Get an ideal of how many steps you take in a normal day and then increase that by 3,000 steps. Pedometers can give us a visual viewpoint on how much walking we are actually doing. Diabetics are looking forward to the day that blood glucose can be measured without pricking the skin. For years, this idea has been in development but so far hasn’t made it to the market. It looks promising during the next few years. If you are over 50, you can experience pain in your knees. There are many causes of knee pain but being overweight or obese can contribute to the problem. Dieting and doing exercises that can strengthen the quadricep muscles (those on the front of the thigh) will help reduce knee pain. Physiotherapists can help. As we age, there are many problems that can start to nag at us. You can certainly feel comfortable talking to our pharmacist staff about health problems. We can listen and certainly help guide you in the right direction.

But I ended up laughing, a few times, and not from discomfort.

grief at losing her son, Danny, to a car accident, is buried deep within her, but it surfaces every once a while, and not in the way you would expect. She deals with things in her own way –– endless baking of sweet treats, depriving her husband of sexual relations for eight months, refusing to attend therapy group, badgering her sister for her wily ways, and banning the family dog from the house –– that help you understand her suffering without banging you over the head with it. Then there’s her husband Howie (a subtle performance by Zyan Panagopolos) who is the complete

At least one hanky is required Continued from page B8 Nothing ever bogs down in the depths of despair because of this “realness” and secondary characters also help to lighten the load. There’s Izzy (in a great performance by newcomer Beckie Turner), Becca’s feisty sister, who gets into a bar fight and later informs everyone she is pregnant (hence the eating of all those tortes, crème caramels, etc.) Her scenes with Becca are just as poignant as the ones with Howie, making her a more sympathetic character than is first alluded. Then there’s Nat (the perfectly cast Joanne Feenstra) whose wine consumption and loose lips often irritate her eldest daughter, especially when she compares the loss of her 30-year-old son, who died of a heroin overdose, to that of Becca’s loss. We all know she means well, and the reconciliation between mother and daughter near the end of the play, again in its subtle way, is the most heartfelt.

The latest music is reviewed every Friday in Street Sounds

Not to give too much away, but Rabbit Hole’s saddest scene comes when young Jason (the even younger seeming, and sweet Ross Freeman-Marsh) visits the family. He’s the boy that was driving the car that killed Danny, when he swerved to miss the dog. At first, he is not welcomed by Howie, when he walks in unexpected during an open house, but Becca later meets with him. His innocence is so credible, and Becca’s grief finally comes to the surface, that you’d be inhuman not to shed at least one tear.

Audiences should not be afraid to enter the Rabbit Hole. And they should see this play before grabbing the DVD of the film version, starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. There’s something about the immediacy of the stage that makes this story fraught with emotion –– both happy and sad. And at least one hanky is required. Rabbit Hole continues at Powerhouse Theatre today at 2 p.m., and Tuesday through Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the Ticket Seller box office, 549-7469, www. ticketseller.ca.

Arts Intensive ESL Immersion for English as a Second Language

More cat than mouse Hanna: ★★★★ out of 5

H

anna is a rarity; an art film that will play well with action fans. In other words, it’s an adrenaline kick without that guilty feeling the next morning. The concept actually sounds pretty familiar: Reluctant government agent who wants to walk away, lab-created superhuman who only wants to be normal. Yet, Hanna is a unique picture – very ruthless, very focused, and as cool and cold as the titular character. The movie stars Saoirse Ronan, who also appeared in director Joe Wright’s Atonement. Ronan is very good, mostly because in much of her work, she has the ability to haunt. Her pale blue eyes can earn sympathy or just as easily burn holes right through you. She definitely has a presence, and it’s one that fits Hanna perfectly. As Hanna, Ronan is the daughter of a widower and former spy (Eric Bana), raised in solitude in remote Finland.

GETTING READY

include yoga, rigorous exercise, getting a massage, travelling and reading a book. The smart thing to do is to find what works for you and do it – regularly. Like happiness, you are responsible for your own health. Be proactive. Improve your overall health by reducing low-value interactions, maintaining perspective, accepting change, laughing often, and learning how to calm yourself. Invest in your future The wise investor pays herself first. It is imperative that you discipline yourself to start funding your future now. Think short term pain, long term gain. You will need 50 to 70 per cent of your pres-

ent income at retirement so load up your RRSPs with long-term investments, make effective use of the TFSA, the RESP for education and the new RDSP for people with disabilities. These types of registered accounts are set up by the federal government to reward Canadians for saving now for future needs. Contributing monthly works well for most people, after a few months you don’t even miss the money, plus you participate in dollar-cost-averaging, a proven and effective way to invest long term. A few more sagacious financial strategies include paying off all credit card debt ASAP, setting up a contingency fund, procuring the proper amount PHOTO SUBMITTED

Special To The Morning Star

ISRAEL - We are standing at a lookout point on the Mount of Olives in Jerusalem, and our guide, Carmela, with a theatrical sweep of her hand, announces, “Folks, I give you the Old City of Jerusalem!” A wag among our group says, “Really? You sure you don’t want it any more?” In the June heat-shimmer, the distant buildings within the crenelated old city wall, are a jumble of toy-sized blocks, but the one building that stands out is the glittering golden Dome of the Rock shrine on Temple Mount. Sacred to both the Jews and Muslims, the foundation stone is reputedly where Abraham prepared to sacrifice his son Isaac; it is also the place from whence, legend says, the Prophet Mohammed ascended into heaven. Jerusalem is also at the core of JudeoChristian tradition and, standing here looking at the Holy City, I find myself shedding adult scepticism and being drawn back into childhood’s simplicity of faith. Below our lookout and partly hidden by trees is the Basilica of Agony where Jesus once prayed: “O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me.” He was a sorrowful human being then, not the transcendent “Christ” figure he would later become. A little further down the hill is the Garden of Gethsemane marking the scene of Judas’ kiss of betrayal. We visit the “upper room” where Jesus and his disciples celebrated their last Passover meal together. Located over the ancient tomb of King David, this room, built at the time of the Crusaders has replaced the original chamber. It is almost stark in its simplicity: a Gothic vaulted ceiling, stairs leading to an inner room, a carved marble niche, and a symbolic bronze olive tree on a raised platform. It is here that Jesus instituted what endures as the most reverential of all Christian rituals — the offering of bread and wine as a symbol of His body and

Even in biblical times it was, just as it is today, a thriving market place. It is a swirl of movement and colour: tourists and touts, and the whole sad spill of tawdry religious debris — stained-glass images of the Virgin and the Last Supper, vials of holy

For every cynic who calls it a tale of “crucifixion,” there are millions more who are deeply moved by the terrible yet humbling drama they believe took place here in the heart of Jerusalem 2,000 years ago — an event which changed the course of western civilization forever.

NO HST on U.S. Tours!

Yet in the midst of this seething commercialism, suddenly for me — not a particularly devout Anglican — the story of this tragic Man of Sorrows takes on reality. I see him, scourged, crowned with thorns, staggering up the hill to Golgotha, thin and emaciated, his face streaked with blood and sweat, his back striped with welts while carrying the cross — a heavy wooden implement to which he would be nailed to die. I am impelled to place my hand in the print of Christ’s hand in the rock — worn smooth now by others before me — and to lean against the rock where he would have stood as Simon of Cyrene helped him to carry the cross. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre is unpretentious when compared to the grandeur of St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican, but it is unequivocally the most emotionally moving site in all Christendom. I climb the spiral stone staircase leading to the chapel of the Rock of Calvary. A glittering altar covers the actual spot where the crucifixion took place, and a woman kneels to touch the sacred Rock through a small aperture at the base of the altar. She rises and wipes her eyes she turns to leave. To the left of the main entrance, is the Rotunda, and leading off this is a small entrance into the holiest of shrines — the Chapel of the Holy Sepulchre containing Jesus’ tomb and a marble slab which marks the spot where the risen Christ emerged triumphantly three days after he was crucified. The line up of pilgrims, many with their eyes closed in prayer as they wait to enter the

Boat launch closed

Morning Star Staff

The Bear Creek boat launch, at Bear Creek Provincial Park, on Westside Road is now permanently closed. The Central Okanagan Regional District, which has maintained and operated the facility for many years, has initiated the closure in advance of the upcoming marine season.

“Signs have been posted and the boat launch is no longer accessible,” said Bruce Smith, communications co-ordinator. “Later this year, the infrastructure will be removed and the site will be restored to its natural condition.” Smith said the closure is necessary because the shallow water level, continuing sedimentation and

the topography of the lake bed have combined to make the boat launch unsuitable for continued use. North Westsiude Road residents that require a boat launch can use the community boat launches at the end of Fintry Delta Road or in Killiney Beach Community Park on Hodges Road, or in Fintry Provincial Park.

WANT TO RECYCLE YOUR UNWANTED ELECTRONICS? Here’s where you can recycle them safely and free of charge in Armstrong and Vernon:

Armstrong Bottle Depot 3730 Pleasant Valley Boulevard, Armstrong (250) 546-2466

Interior Freight & Bottle Depot 4205 – 24th Avenue, Vernon (250) 545-5706

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS STEWARDSHIP ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (ESABC) PROGRAM? ESABC is a not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia to provide a province wide recycling system for unwanted electronics.

WHAT ARE THE ACCEPTABLE ELECTRONIC ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM? Effective July 1, 2010, the following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics™ Collection Site: display devices, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, computer scanners, printers and fax machines, non-cellular phones and answering machines, vehicle audio and video systems (aftermarket), home audio and video systems, and personal or portable audio and video systems.

Venture Training Centre 4240 Alexis Park Drive, Vernon (250) 542-2374

ISN’T IT IMPORTANT TO REUSE BEFORE RECYCLING? While the program is designed to manage unwanted electronic products that have exhausted their reuse potential, we strongly encourage users to first reuse their products. If you choose to donate to a charity, make sure you have backed up your data and wiped your drives clean prior to donation.

HOW ARE ELECTRONICS RECYCLED? Electronics collected for recycling are sent to approved primary recyclers in North America. They are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products.

Rotary Club of Vernon Youth Exchange Student off to Brazil Local student Stephanie Jones was heavily involved in the Global Education program at Clarence Fulton Secondary last year, and now she is about to get one of her own. Stephanie is this year’s Rotary Club of Vernon Youth Exchange Student and is off to Brazil for her final year of high school. Rotary Youth Exchange students spend up to a year living with host families and attending school in a foreign country. As a result, they return home with a greater sense of the world and a deeper understanding of themselves and their own culture. “I expect to reap many rewards from an exchange experience, including serving as an ambassador for my country and community, benefiting from immersion in another culture while adapting to a new way of life, and making lifelong Rina Wheeldon, Rotary Club of Vernon President friends with other students from around the and exchange student Stephanie Jones world”, said Stephanie. More than 80 countries and over 8,000 students participate in the 75 year old program each year, which is administered at the local level by Rotary clubs. “The Rotary International Exchange Student program is the perfect opportunity to further my education in a dramatic way”, she added.

Rotary Club of Vernon Members Roll Up Sleeves at O’Keefe Ranch for Annual Work Day The annual Rotarians at Work Day for the Rotary Club of Vernon took place on Saturday, April 9th. The vision of the program is to have every Rotarian around the world participating in a service project of some kind. This year, the Rotary Club of Vernon once again descended upon the historic O’Keefe Ranch to help assemble some playground equipment, also donated by the Club. Rotarian at Work Day started in 2006 by the late Bob Watson, past governor of Rotary District 5340 in California, USA and takes place every April. The challenge is for Rotary clubs around the world to carry out hands-on grass-roots service efforts in their community. Watson’s vision was that by 2014, every club and every Rotarian would participate.

Rotary Club of Vernon Scholarships Pave Way for Higher Education The Rotary Club of Vernon continues to provide strong support for students who wish to pursue a higher education with a total of $11,000 in annual scholarship funding. The Club sponsors $1,000 scholarships at each of the local high schools that are awarded based on academic achievement and financial need. The Kalamalka Campus of Okanagan College receives two similar $1,000 academic awards, two more for trades training and one for Aircraft Maintenance training. The winners of the scholarships are chosen not by Rotary Club, but by the respective institutions. The Rotary Club of Vernon Silver Star also funds scholarships totalling $6,000 and the Rotary Club of Kalamalka (Vernon) $4,000. This brings the total commitment of Vernon-area Rotary Clubs to over $21,000 to support the pursuit of post-secondary education by local area students.

“Service Above Self”

Rotarians around the world embody the Rotary Motto “Service Above Self” demonstrating exemplary humanitarian service through personal volunteer efforts in active involvement in helping others through Rotary. The four Rotary Clubs in the Greater Vernon area demonstrate this every day through their countless community and international projects.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) You have a wonderful imagination, but it can work against you as easily as it works for you. Something you envision as being quite difficult is likely to be just a paper dragon. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Someone with whom you’ll spend your day might not want to take part in everything you’d like to do. Take care not to dwell only on your wants, and consider this person’s desires as well. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) In order to get along with your companions, you might have to make some rather large concessions. It’s up to you to make sure it is not merely a one-man show by being cooperative. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) If it takes accepting responsibility for the mistakes of others in order to get things rolling, then you should do so. It’s better than having everything come to a halt or a standstill. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Some kind of deal that you’ve made with others that presently looks like a bummer can be constructively adjusted. You might not get all that you want, but you’ll still come out OK. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Unless you are cognizant of the needs of everybody with whom you’re involved, you could be accused of being selfish. Don’t focus on just yourself. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Should you unintentionally say something that a friend finds offensive, don’t try to get off with an excuse.

Need sewing help? Try Open Sewing for help with these and other sewing issues.

Correct the infraction with a sincere apology instead of debate.

Tuesday 1 - 3 pm Thursday 6 - 8 pm Saturday 10 am - 12 pm

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Although this might be a day of rest for most, it behooves you to use your time constructively. Either get caught up on old, neglected chores or get a head start on next week’s duties. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Be flexible when dealing with others, or adverse results could easily be the order of the day. Your wit and resourcefulness can turn any negative situation into a positive one. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Even though you’ll have your share of ups and downs, in the final analysis things in general should work out rather well for you. Remain optimistic regardless of what is going on. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Something fun to do might pop up that you’ll want to be part of. The only problem is the activity could be more expensive than what you want to pay. The choice might be difficult.

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.

Tax News

from Dean Chapple at H&R Block April 30th is just around the corner. If you are self-employed or commission sales etc. with lots of receipts it is time to either sort them yourself into categories or make sure your tax specialist has them to sort for you so that your return can be completed in time. Although, technically, self employed persons have until June 15th to file, any taxes owing must be paid by April 30th to avoid interest, so it makes sense to file the return by this deadline. If you are using a bookkeeper, then all postings should be up to date by now with your financial statements ready for tax preparation. Remember that debit receipts cannot be used alone, you must have the invoice or till receipt showing what was purchased. Receipts including any personal items on them need to be highlighted and the personal items removed. Come in and see our tax specialists for speedy, accurate service . They will advise you of any other deductions you may qualify for and/or if it is time to think about incorporating?

Bridge by Phillip Alder Stephen Hawking, during an interview by Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine, said, “We are just an advanced breed of monkeys on a minor planet of a very average star. But we can understand the Universe. That makes us something very special.” In today’s deal, South has two minor suits at his disposal in three no-trump. Which should he attack first and how? West leads the spade seven: three, 10, queen. North added one point for his good five-card suit; hence, his immediate jump to three no-trump. South had six top tricks: two spades (given the first trick), one heart, two diamonds and one club. It looked normal to cash the

diamond king and run the diamond nine. But East won with his queen and returned the spade six (the higher of two remaining cards) to declarer’s ace. Then South ran the club queen, but East took the trick with his king and led his last spade: down one. North muttered about East’s being more likely to have the diamond queen, but playing a diamond to dummy’s king, then running the jack, risked West’s producing the queen, when South would have needed the club finesse to work. There was an even better approach. Suppose, at trick two, South leads a club to dummy’s ace and returns the club three toward his hand. Here, if

beside Tim Horton’s drive-thru

East goes up with his king, declarer has nine tricks via two spades, one heart, two diamonds and four clubs. And if East ducks his king, South shifts to diamonds. At the worst, West could take the club queen with his king and lead another spade. Then declarer needs either clubs to be 3-3 or to run the diamonds.

Glenn Nelson Dale Newman It is with great sadness, heavy hearts and millions of tears that we announce the very sudden passing of Glenn Nelson Dale Newman on April 15, 2011. Glenn leaves behind to cherish his memory his life partner Angela Killen; his son Cody (Rozanna) Newman; his daughter Monica (Neil) Penner of Calgary; and his grandchildren Asia, Silas and Aeran Penner of Calgary. He will also be missed by his siblings Nancy (Harry/Herman) Zielke of Winnipeg, Jim (Alma) Newman of Duggald MB, Kathleen Schoenberger of Vernon, Gaylord (Liz) Newman of Beausejour MB, and Lorelei (Ron) Buss of Beausejour MB and several nieces, nephews, extended family members, coworkers, and friends. Glenn was predeceased by his parents, two brothers Tim and Searle and brother-in-law Hans Schoenberger. Glenn was born on September 23, 1944 in Winnipeg MB to Annie and William David Newman. He grew up and spent an adventurous childhood with his dog Trigger. He then went to Prince Rupert, Houston, back to Manitoba and in 1980 returned back to the Enderby - Armstrong area. He moved to Enderby in December 2002. Glenn worked in construction, logging, farming, and the past 30 years for Banah Blasting. The most important thing in Glenn’s life was family and friends, and he enjoyed spending time with them all. He loved the outdoors, hunting, fishing, reading and travelling. As an expression of sympathy, those who wish to do so may send a donation in Glenn’s memory to the Shuswap Hospital Foundation (Box 265, Salmon Arm BC V1E 4N3). Funeral Service will take place at noon on Tuesday, April 26, 2011 at Shuswap Community Church (3151 - 6th Avenue NE, Salmon Arm BC).

We thought of you today but that is nothing new We thought of you yesterday and will tomorrow too. We think of you in silence and make no outward show For what it’s meant to lose you, only those who love you know. Remembering you is easy, we do it every day But the heartache of losing you will never go away. We will always remember the yesterdays you ďŹ lled with love and care The peace and comfort we felt of knowing you were there. As time goes by without you and the days turn into years It holds a lot of sadness and no end of silent tears. To us you were so special, in our hearts a special place These memories will be with us always, no time can erase.
