Tyson Wicklund, three, stands up for the national anthem at the beginning of the first game in the Stanley Cup playoffs Wednesday as Kennedy, one, and Rebekka and Wayne Wicklund settle in to watch the action.

The North Okanagan is crazy over their Canucks. The proof is in the pictures, sent in from readers, of just how far fans will go to show their dedication to B.C.’s team. Armstrong residents Alistair and Sharon Bain might be the biggest Canuckleheads. They painted the original team logo right onto their lawn. “We’re huge fans,” confirms Sharon, whose husband transformed their front lawn into a 16’ x 22’ show of support, visible from the sky, before game one Wednesday night. “He cut it into the lawn first then thought, oh that wasn’t good enough, so he went ahead and painted it.” So far, their team hasn’t let them down, winning the first game in the finals against the Boston Bruins 1-0 – forward Raffi Torres scoring the winning goal with 18.5 seconds left in the third period.

The Canucks are trying to win their first ever Cup in their third finals appearance. Boston is trying to take the cup for the sixth time, since winning it

back in 1972. Game two is Saturday in Vancouver at 5 p.m. See page A6 for another local showing of Canuck pride.

News Man dies in lake accident

Woman robbed at knife point

Morning Star Staff

JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

A woman was robbed at knife point in broad daylight downtown Wednesday. The female victim reports she was approached outside the downtown Safeway around 11 a.m. and robbed of her purse, containing ID and other personal items, at knife point. “She was in the parking lot,� said Gordon Molendyk, spokesperson for the Vernon/North Okanagan RCMP detachment. She escaped the incident with only minor injuries to her arm and was a little shaken up. “It would be pretty scary for sure,� said Molendyk. RCMP and the police service dog searched the area but could not locate the suspect or the woman’s belongings. The suspect is described as a native male, between 30 and 38 years old, weighing approximately 165 pounds and standing 5’10� to sixfeet tall. He was wearing a red hoodie with the hood pulled over his head and dark pants. Police continue to investigate the incident and are asking anyone with any information about this robbery or anyone who may have seen it to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or the Vernon RCMP detachment at 250-545-7171.

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

A police services dog and handler try to sniff out a suspect behind the downtown Safeway Wednesday around 11:30 a.m. after a report of a citizen being robbed at knife point outside the grocery store. RCMP and ambulance crews (below) speak to the victim of the robbery.

You deserve it!

A Coldstream man lost his life in a boating accident on Sugar Lake Wednesday. Search and Rescue crews were called to the lake near Cherryville at 12:30 p.m. after a witness on shore reported seeing the lone male’s fishing boat capsize in the water. Thomas McCadden, 78, of Coldstream has been identified as the victim. RCMP report windy and rainy conditions caused choppy waters at the time of the capsizing. “We had a witness on the far shore from him and she actually saw him go over,� said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. Upon arrival, RCMP and Search and Rescue crews spotted an orange life-jacket near the boat and discovered the body. “It was confirmed, the deceased was wearing a life-jacket,� said Proce. This is the third water search crews have been called out to in as many weeks. Search and Rescue continues to scour Cherry Creek in Cherryville for a 31-year-old Vernon man (last seen May 20) and Shuswap River in Enderby for 17-year-old Daniel Linz of Enderby (last seen May 27). “They’ve been very diligent,� said Proce of Search and Rescue efforts, which included air crews scouring the two locations earlier this week. These incidents serve as a reminder for residents to put safety first in and around creeks, rivers and lakes. “The creeks and rivers are running extremely fast and the lake waters are very cold,� said Proce. “Everyone is reminded to exercise extreme caution around the water at this time of year.�

What started as a sad news story for a local event has turned full circle. Volunteers of the annual Do It For Dad Run/ Walk were shocked to discover that one of their event banners went missing and another was torn and ripped this past week. But following reports in the media for the return of the missing banner with a no-questions-asked policy, not one but two banners have resurfaced. “The good news is public works has one and one that was taken four years ago has resurfaced,” said Andrea Egan, development officer with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation, which the event supports. The largest banner, a 16-foot sign which was taken down from the McDonald Park fence, will be returned. And thanks to the recovery of the older banner, the one that is torn will be back up and the event will not be out any money to replace them. “It is vital to the success of our event to have these banners displayed to promote the event and to raise the necessary funds,” said race director Mike Smith. The Father’s Day event is in support of the local Prostate Cancer Support and Awareness Group. Proceeds supply free PSA tests to men in the community and purchase equipment used in the detection and treatment of prostate cancer. “Ours is a non-profit group and entirely run by volunteers to provide this vital service in our community,” said Smith, who estimates the replacement cost of the two banners would have been $1,400. That $1,400 will provide more than 56 men in the community with free PSA tests for early detection of prostate cancer. Do It For Dad takes place Sunday June 19 at Coldstream Ranch. Registration is at 8:30 a.m. and the run and walk starts at 9:30.

What a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, Arnold Badke, engineering general manager for the Regional District of North Okanagan, stood before the directors and announced that stage three water restrictions would be implemented early in the year due to low water levels in area reservoirs. On Wednesday, at a regular meeting of the board, Badke announced that five of the area reservoirs were full. “Water won’t be a problem this year,” he smiled. “We are on stage one restrictions now but, of course, we’ll be monitoring things over the summer.” The water levels were so low in 2010 that stage three restrictions were placed on residents as early as April, meaning that swimming pools could not be filled with water. Badke said Wednesday that the Grizzly, Haddo, Aberdeen Lake, Goose Lake and King Edward Lake reservoirs were all full. “It’s the second time in the last five years that we have filled our reservoirs,” said Badke. Regional district staff were heading up to the Vance Creek reservoir Thursday to check on levels there. Badke explained that normally the district is allowed to fill the reservoir between April 15 and June 15, but they have successfully applied for an

Armstrong and Vermont head-to-head in playoff bet RANDAL SMATHERS Rutland (Vt.) Herald

Editor’s note: The following is a story about a wager on the Stanley Cup final between the mayors of Armstrong and Rutland, Vermont, written by a former Armstrong resident. So the troublemaker who started this whole thing wants to remain anonymous, but somebody from Rutland (Vermont) who knows I am a hockey fan who grew up in British Columbia suggested that the mayor of my adopted hometown should challenge the mayor of my Canadian hometown to a friendly wager over the Stanley Cup playoffs. Chris Louras, being a Boston Bruins fan and a good sport, was happy to put a gallon of pure Vermont maple syrup on the New England team being better over seven games than the Vancouver Canucks. I’m not sure if I should apologize to Mayor Louras for getting him into this predicament or his wife Judy for publishing the picture. For non-hockey fans, the tape on his glasses is a reference to the Paul Newman movie, Slapshot. The challenge that makes the most sense would be B.C. cheddar or apples, both of which are pretty much symbolic of the North Okanagan valley, but: It’s kind of redundant to send either to Vermont, which is famous for apples and cheddar; Vermonters would shrink in horror at orange cheddar; and Mayor Chris Pieper of Armstrong, B.C., assures me he checked and there are regula-

CASSANDRA HOTALING/RUTLAND HERALD PHOTO

Rutland, Vermont Mayor Christopher Louras wears his Bruins hockey helmet and holds a gallon of Vermont maple syrup in Rutland on Tuesday, part of a bet he has with Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper (right) who will offer up some Armstrong Chocoliro chocolates and sweets to the mayor of Rutland, Vermont, if the Vancouver Canucks should lose the Stanley Cup final to the Boston Bruins. tions against mailing cheese and apples from there to here anyway. So a couple of phone calls and a few e-mails later, he was only too happy to put a large box of chocolates made by a local company, Chocoliro (www. chocoliro.com), on the Canucks. And as he said, “I should never have to worry about that, because the Canucks will win.” To sweeten the deal further, Mayor Pieper let it be known that while he is 100 per cent behind the Canucks in this series, he is really a Montreal Canadiens fan at heart, so Mayor Louras will be twice as happy to beat him. Pieper signed his message, “Love my Canucks (and Canadiens.)” In the interests of full disclosure, I have

cheered for the Canucks since they broke into the NHL in 1970 (western readers of a certain age will recall forcing their dads to gas up at Esso stations so they could collect the Andre Boudrias and Orland Kurtenbach Power Players stickers. I just kept getting Dunc Wilson over and over). Before the playoffs started, I picked the Canucks over the Bruins in six, so I’ll stick with it. In fact, I’m actually looking at this less as a bet and more of a way to find new markets for Vermont syrup, one mayor at a time. And for those B.C. readers who might be finding this online, and who are less confident of the Canucks’ superiority, that’s not Louras’ playoff beard. His last

public wager was that he would not shave for six months if Rutland was able to retake the New England record for a one-day Red Cross blood drive, which Boston held after the Red Sox hosted a drive at Fenway. Since Rutland collected 1,178 pints in December, the record is back in Rutland and the mayor hasn’t shaved since. The motto for the blood drive? “Beat Boston.” Hey, that’s got a ring to it. Rutland Herald editor Randal Smathers is a 1978 graduate of Pleasant Valley Senior Secondary in beautiful Armstrong. He met and married a Vermont woman.

Suspended officer stripped of wages CHERYL WIERDA Morning Star Staff

The Kelowna RCMP officer facing two criminal charges for assault causing bodily harm will no longer be collecting a pay cheque from the police force. Supt. Bill McKinnon announced Monday that Const. Geoff Mantler, of Armstrong, who has been suspended with pay since his highly publicized kick of Buddy Tavares in January, had been served with a stoppage of pay effective May 27. “Stoppage of pay and allowances was approved for Const. Mantler on the rationale that the allegations of misconduct against him are so serious that they require a greater response than the suspension alone,” said McKinnon. “I must clarify that suspensions, either with or without pay, are not forms of punishment. They are temporary measures to protect the integrity of the RCMP and its processes while we are awaiting the outcome of both the criminal investigations and the internal codes of conduct.” The decision, made by RCMP brass in Ottawa after the commanding officer of the RCMP in B.C. earlier recommended suspending the officer’s pay, came following public criticism about the officer remaining on the payroll after his suspension related to the

“The allegations of misconduct against him are so serious that they require a greater response than suspension alone.” — Supt. Bill McKinnon Tavares case. “I realize that this decision has been a long awaited one for Mr. Tavares and the general public and I appreciate your patience,” said McKinnon. “This incident and these past few months have been difficult and I recognize the impact it (has) had on this community.” “Despite this, I want to ensure you that the members and employees of Kelowna Detachment remain very much dedicated to their jobs and performing to the standards that the citizens of Kelowna, the management of the RCMP, and I expect.” McKinnon said this is the second time in his decade with the Kelowna RCMP that an officer has had his pay stopped. Mantler’s pay removal comes nearly five months after he was removed from active duty in Kelowna. The 28-year-old was suspended with pay shortly after the Jan. 7 arrest of Tavares, where Mantler was caught on video by Castanet kicking Tavares in the face while Tavares was on his hands and knees. Mantler was charged with assault causing

bodily harm in relation to that incident in March. A second assault causing bodily harm charge relates to an Aug. 30, 2010 incident involving Manjeet Bhatti, court records show.

While no longer being paid, Mantler is still receiving public funding for his legal defence, pending a review by the commanding officer of RCMP BC, Kelowna Mounties said Monday. In addition to the

criminal charges, Mantler is also subject to internal RCMP investigations. Those are complete and awaiting the commanding officer’s recommendations on the process, said McKinnon. It is expected a tribunal based on the internal investigations will be held in the future to determine any sanctions and Mantler’s employment status, McKinnon said.

Tiny dancer

I

n my fantasy, perfect life, I am an amazing dancer. From that old soft shoe, to ethereal ballet, to sultry tango, mesmerizing East Indian, and spirited tap, I excel in all. And I look gorgeous in all the gear – this is a fantasy after all. Of course, my reality involves nothing closer to dance than lifting my pen and notebook with what I like to think is a certain grace. I was delighted to attend the Accentz Dance Studio productions of Cara Brady The Enchanted Forest and Dreams last Saturday to see my god-daughter and granddaughter perform. From the tiniest baby ballerinas to the more mature students, all the dancers looked like they were having fun, danced well, and it was all a pleasure to watch them. I couldn’t help thinking about what it took to bring it all together – the teachers, the backstage people, the performers who work towards the performance all year, and the parents. No matter how much aptitude and enthusiasm a child has, nothing can happen without parents’ support and encouragement. While most of the children will not go on to be professional dancers, they are learning skills that will serve them well anywhere life takes them. Dancing helps anyone develop poise, confidence, discipline, music appreciation, how to keep their bodies healthy and fit, memorization and working together. I wondered how the students came to be in the classes. For the girls, the answer was obvious, most mothers want to see their daughters in sparkly costumes and most little girls love to wear them. Was it harder for the boys? Some of the classes had one or more boys. Sometimes they did a specific male role, other times they were just one of the dancers, which is what most of us are in the dance of life most of the time – not usually standing out but a necessary part of the whole production. Did fathers grumble and say no boy of mine is going to dance, I want him to do sports, when first approached with the idea? Did they, maybe without thinking about it, want to relive their own visions of success through their children? Did they think they were protecting their sons from being called sissies (does anyone use that

old-fashioned word)? Was the whole idea just uncomfortable for some reason they could not have named even to themselves? Good dancers are always admired for their strength, skill and ability. Where would dance in general be without male dancers? Dancing is a valuable social skill and impresses the girls of any age. Any father who won’t let his son try dance if he wants to should have seen the performances of the young men at the recital I attended, a teen in ballet and a younger dancer in jazz and hip hop. The dancer’s impression of a photographer would surely have made our Morning Star photographer laugh, or maybe it was right on. Not to say mothers don’t do the same thing, that is, trying to live out what they think they missed out through their daughters. The idea of little girls in beauty pageants comes to mind, young women making that choice when they are old enough is another thing entirely. Strangely enough, now when girls want to try a traditionally male endeavour, whether it is hockey or auto mechanics, they are usually encouraged. There’s another message girls and boys should not be getting – that the guy stuff is somehow better. I think the most important thing for parents is to treat each child as an individual and respect their interests and abilities. Child one might want to play soccer while child two can think about nothing but the guitar and singing. Child three could like nothing better than taking things apart and putting them back together and child four will paint and draw on anything. Child five just wants to ride, bike or horses. Parents need to listen to what their children are naturally drawn to and do what they can to help that flourish. It is also vital to provide exposure to a variety of experiences so that children know what is available and what they might like to pursue. There is nothing wrong with a child, or adult for that matter, taking classes or doing a sport for awhile before deciding that there is something else that calls out for the time and effort for excellence and enjoyment. Parents should be happy to provide these opportunities with the many great local instructors and coaches. I grew up in the country where there were no dance lessons or lessons of any kind available so I pirouette only in my dreams — it is too late for me to dance, but it is never too late to appreciate watching dance.

When it comes to civic pride, this year should be one for the history books. Vancouver reaching the Stanley Cup finals has made B.C. Canuck crazy. As Canadians, we are assumed born to love hockey. But in B.C. the passion for the game is arguably showing more passionately now than at any other time in the team’s 40-year history. People love their team and they’re not afraid to show it. There’s die-hard fans getting inked with the team crest, people taking out loans to get a seat at one of the playoff games, and you can’t go a block in any community without seeing Canuck colours waving in the wind off vehicles, and even some houses. Vancouver has made it to the finals three times now, but Lord Stanley’s cup has always managed to escape their grasp. If they happen to score the winning goal in the deciding game, one can only imagine what the streets of Vancouver will be like on that fateful day. Indeed, the entire province will celebrate the likes that hasn’t been seen since the day Sidney Crosby scored that overtime goal to secure gold for Canada at last year’s Olympic Games in, yes, Vancouver. Until then, those with a love for the boys in blue will continue to display their team pride every chance they get. Go, Canucks, go. Even if you aren’t a true-blue Canuck fan, whether you’re cheering on the big bad Bruins or moping since your team was shut out of the playoffs, you have to admit it feels good to see the support and the positive vibes all around. After all, that’s the beauty of sports and the power of a winning team’s influence on a community, a province and, indeed, an entire country.

Give Cenotaph Park a chance

I

’d like to respond to the letter on May 16, opposing the move of the bus exchange back to Cenotaph Park. My initial reaction to the change was similar but further investigation turned up other facts. Firstly, hats off to the courts for designating Cenotaph Park as a “no go zone” for those convicted of drug offences and secondly, kudos to city hall, social planning, and other local service agencies for providing support to the needy and homeless. This has changed the character of the park. In recognition of those to whom the Cenotaph is dedicated, we should be making far more use of this jewel in the centre of our city. I recommend that everyone take the time to actually go to the park and have a look, maybe buy a picnic lunch from one of the nearby merchants and spend some time there. The new pathway from city hall passes through the Spirit Plaza, past the museum and the “old” library across STREET SMARTS My family lives on 25th St near 32nd Ave. I recently phoned the city of Vernon requesting to speak with a city planner regarding the possibility of a sidewalk and some other traffic calming systems be placed on our street. I received a return call from the same secretary with whom I initially spoke stating that these items are part of the city plan, pending budget approval. I was already aware of this. I would like to see some action. I would like to know what I and my neighbors can do to show how important walking safety is for our children and all of those people attempting to walk or cycle down our street without being in danger – 25th St is commonly used as a second thoroughfare by vehicles attempting to avoid 27th St. I have two young daughters and there are many other young children on our street who are constantly put in danger by speeding traffic. We are unable to walk to town without having to constantly watch over our shoulders for traffic that is coming at us. When I pick my daughter up from pre-school we use other streets to get home so that she can ride her bike safely. I am an emergency room physician at the VJH and I am all too

aware of the effects that errant vehicles can have on those people who are attempting to get around town by bike or on foot. I am appalled at the lack of planning for foot and bicycle traffic in Vernon. In most cities a street like 25th would be perfect for bicycles, not to mention foot traffic. This is not the case here. Any response would be appreciated. We would like to be able to enjoy our street in safety. Mathew Hewitt NOT FUNNY May 6 at 2 p.m. I was riding my bike north of Vernon on Highway 97 about one kilometre shy of Swan Lake Nursery. I was well into the shoulder of the road when what felt like a piece of tire hit my left hip. It hit hard and it hurt. I looked back to see a slurpee cup rolling along the road and the white truck from which it was thrown accelerating away. All of this happened very fast and I was not able to get the licence plate number of the truck. What I was able to notice was the person in the passenger seat was laughing. I guess he thought it was funny. I had just started my 60 KM ride so I had some time to think about what

had just happened. What struck me, other than the slurpee cup, was that almost two weeks to the hour before, Byron Chatham was involved in a fatal biking accident. I am not suggesting that what happened to me is comparable but what if that cup had hit my spokes instead of my body? Obviously they did not think of this before or probably even after they threw the cup. I was traveling at about 30 kilometres and the truck was probably doing about 90-100km per hour and if it had gone in my spokes it could have taken me down. I could have broken my neck/ back on impact. Would that have been funny? I could have gone under the wheels of the next vehicle. I wonder if that would have been funny? I am married and have two children who are already a little worried about me when I go for a ride. There are so many things to look out for when cycling. Rocks, pot holes, glass to mention a few. Now I need to constantly look in my rear view mirror for windows rolled down because some idiot thinks it's funny to bean cyclists with drink cups. James Nicholls

The Vernon Public Art Gallery will be holding its 25th annual fundraiser “Midsummer’s Eve of the Arts” in Cenotaph Park this July 20 to support the progress that is being made to improve this area and to highlight the fact that the community needs a new art gallery somewhere within this area. Sveva will be watching over the event from the new mural. Let’s imagine a central bus exchange that is integrated into the cultural core of the community, where you can pop into the gallery or museum to stay warm in the winter if you need to wait. You can have a picnic in the park while you wait for your bus in the summer, maybe hear some live music. As the area grows and more buses are added it can become the hub of community activity. Let’s not abandon Cenotaph Park because of its less than perfect past, let’s enhance it and enjoy it. Marion Morrison President, Vernon Public Art Gallery Conservatives have authorized this type of election advertising, it shows that his party is clearly out of touch with the basic principles of democracy in Canada and in the world. Steve Gunner

ELECTION WOES I am compelled to take exception to the advertising campaign used by our incumbent MP Colin Mayes in the last few days of the federal election campaign. The last time I checked Canada is a democracy. In a democratic country elections are required to be held from time to time within a certain time period and the majority of parliament has a right to determine when that time is. In this case it's where a minority government has been found in contempt of Parliament (a first in a commonwealth country). The majority forced this election and it is completely within their right. Mr. Mayes and the Conservatives are saying in their ad campaign that “this election was not necessary,” in other words, that democracy is not necessary! At a time in our history when people in countries from Tunisia to Syria are taking to the streets every day (with the full expectation of being killed) to ask for the right to vote, I find Mr. Mayes and his team’s assertions that “this election was not necessary” to be extremely misleading, arrogant and divisive. Indeed, if Stephen Harper’s

Local officer honoured for boat safety efforts Morning Star Staff

A Vernon conservation officer has been honoured for his passion in boating safety. Sgt. Josh Lockwood, North Okanagan zone supervisor, was recently named National Marine Professional of the Year by the Canadian Safe Boating Council, a non-profit boating safety organization dedicated to reducing deaths on Canada’s waterways. “The community recommended me for the award so it feels very good,” said Lockwood. “It’s a team effort. I got the award but it’s a team effort with the Integrated Shuswap Enforcement Unit. I did the co-ordination and the planning. It’s nice to be recognized by the federal government for the work we do in boating policing.” With 31 years in law enforcement, Lockwood has an infectious passion for boating safety and works hard to educate boaters in his jurisdic-

tion about the perils of impaired boating. His jurisdiction includes some highly popular ‘party beaches,’ where fatalities are not uncommon every summer. Lockwood’s outreach efforts include public forums, education and compliance projects and nighttime lake patrols. He also launched ‘Help Kids Float’ last year, after learning that many of the First Nation’s youth in the Okanagan/Shuswap communities were at a high drowning risk because they often don’t have access to proper life-jackets. The program mobilized the public to donate unwanted PFDs (Personal Flotation Devices). Collection bins were scattered throughout the community in malls and conservation officer service offices. Thanks to these efforts, many more recreational boaters in Lockwood’s jurisdiction are enjoying boating responsibly and safely.

Suspects sought Morning Star Staff

Crime Stoppers is asking the public’s assistance in locating the following men who are wanted on province-wide warrants as of May 27. ■ Jesse James White is wanted for a breach of his probation order. White, 21, is described as Caucasian, six-foot-two and weighs 150-lbs with blond hair and blue eyes. Jesse White ■ Brian Keith Douma is wanted for fraud under $5,000. Douma, 42, is described as Caucasian, five-foot-nine and weighs 201-lbs, balding and has grey eyes. Crime Stoppers will pay cash for information leading to an arrest of these suspects. If you see them do not Brian Douma approach them. Call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or go to www.nokscrimestoppers.com.

Are you a Woman over 35? Need more energy? Want to look and feel better? Brad King, M.S., MFS

If you’re a woman over 35, you are probably already starting to feel the debilitating effects of what is now referred to as estrogendominance, a condition in which healthy estrogens are pushed out of the way by unhealthy estrogens. As we age, we notice a decline in the overall hormonal messages that used to give us abundant health and energy, and we fall victim to ever-increasing hormonal imbalances. The end result is diminished youth, energy, vitality, muscular size and strength, and an ever-increasing waistline. This is why although we may weigh the same as in our teenage years, things certainly don’t look or feel the same. As we lose our lean metabolically active tissues (muscle), our metabolism declines and we accumulate more and more body fat.

IF YOU: • • • • • • • • • •

Venues make the grade for Games ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Venues for the 2012 B.C. Winter Games in Greater Vernon are a go. Games society directors visited Vernon and the local organizing committee on May 28 for an update on the local progress, as well as a tour of the facilities that will be used during the event slated for Feb. 23-26, 2012. “Everything passed, there were no problems or concerns,” said Jack Yamaoka, director of sport for the local organizing committee. Provincial Games representatives were given an overview from each of the board chairs on the local committee, then taken on a tour of the venues. It’s expected an estimated 2,800 volunteers will be involved in the Winter Games, which will see athletes, coaches and officials involved in 18 sports. The only events taking place outside of Vernon will be held in Armstrong, including speed skating at the Nor-Val sports centre and karate at Pleasant Valley Secondary School. Sports in Vernon will include the likes of archery (Vernon Secondary), badminton (Fulton Secondary), girl’s hockey (Wesbild Centre), curling (Vernon Curling Club), gymnastics (Priest Valley Gymnasium), judo (Kalamalka

A local boater is questioning some of the waves being made in Coldstream over a regional boat launch report. Coldstream council recently challenged the draft Okanagan Lake and Kalamalka Lake boat launch study. The local politicians question the validity of the report and have requested that none of the report’s recommendations be implemented until there is further study. One point Coldstream raised concerns with was the fact that the report did not address Kalavista boat launch. “We spent $40,000 on a study and we didn’t answer any of the questions that it set out to,” Coun. Maria Besso said at the May 24 Coldstream council meeting. “The study was initiated because of the problems happening at the Kalavista boat launch.” But local boater Lorne Pearson questions how Coldstream could be caught off guard by the fact

that motorized boating at the Kalavista launch wasn’t included in the study. He claims when the study was in its early stages, requests to Coldstream and the North Okanagan Regional District to include this specific launch in the report were denied. “I had repeatedly asked them that motorized boating be looked at in the study,” said Pearson. “That was left out on purpose. “And now they’re complaining about it.” Pearson calls the study a waste of money. The Morning Star would also like to correct an error in the previous article outlining Coldstream’s concerns. The article should have stated that the boat carrying capacity calculations in the report are based on 15 acres per boat (not 15 boats per acre).

At the very least, Louise (did not want her last name used) would like the two barrels of methanol stolen along with her pickup returned. Failing that, she would like to warn others that the 45-gallon barrels stolen from her truck and dumped in a subsequent robbery are out there and could be on the re-sale market. “The methanol is used for race cars and my sons race, they need the methanol,� said Louise. She said she had the barrels securely tied up under a tarpaulin in the box of her 1994 GMC 3/4 ton heavy duty diesel truck which

was parked in a 30th Avenue apartment complex Sunday night. As police later discovered, the truck was taken to Kelowna where, according to Louise, a trailer was stolen from a sod farm and then some riding mowers were taken from a local John Deere dealership and loaded onto the trailer. The truck, trailer and mowers were reported to Kelowna RCMP, who alerted Lake Country officers. The truck and trailer were spotted going through Lake Country northbound on Highway 97, so Vernon RCMP officers were notified. The truck was seen turning off the highway and ended up on Commonage Road. There, officers set up a spike belt which the

truck drove over. The lone suspect in the vehicle fled on foot but was arrested a short time later by RCMP. According to Louise, the suspect told RCMP he dumped the barrels but they have not been recovered. Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk said there was no mention of the stolen methanol in any of the police files on the matter. Louise, who had been in Vernon for a funeral, has gotten her truck back but she would like to return to her Alberta home with the methanol. If anybody has any information they can contact Louise at 780-674-0731.

Oyama celebrates with old-fashioned day of fun RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

It’s a tradition that goes back decades, but Oyama Fun Day remains highly popular. Steady crowds are expected to turn out for the annual community celebration Sunday. “This is our big community day,” said Deb Butler, with the Oyama Community Club. “It’s an old-fashioned family day and it’s a great chance for neighbours to come together.” Most of the activities are located around the community hall (15710 Oyama Rd.) and the fun gets underway with a pancake breakfast from 8 to 10 a.m. At 10 a.m., the parade assembles beside the Oyama General Store and with no preregistration necessary, everyone is invited to

participate. “It’s getting pretty big. We usually have 70 or 80 entries,” said Butler. Little Women 4 Little Women will hold a children’s right march from the community hall to the parade assembly area at 10:45 a.m. And then the parade begins at 11 a.m. and travels east to the school. “It’s the only parade in Lake Country,” said Butler. At noon, the Lake Country Jumping Agility Mutts will put on a demonstration, while the concession area will also open. More fun takes place at 12:30 p.m., with the Lake Country Big Band taking to the stage and Adrian Empire’s medieval village offering up games and dancing. There will also be field events for all ages,

including tug-of-war, sack races, an egg throw, an ice cream eating contest and an ice block relay. The Lake Country Scouts will have a rope bridge. At 1 p.m., Oyama Traditional School will host children’s games while the District of Lake Country will sponsor bounce activities. “There are lots of kids’ activities,” said Butler. One of the most popular events during Fun Day is the Peep Peep Poop Coop contest. Participants purchase a square on a grid and then they wait to see if a chicken leaves its calling card in their square. The owner of the lucky square wins. “We feed the chickens all morning,” said Butler. “The contest is really

a big deal. People are in there buying their square first thing in the morning.”

Contest ticket sales begin at 8 a.m. Oyama Fun Day officially wraps up for

another year at 3 p.m. “The Oyama Community Club proudly hosts Fun Day

as our contribution to the quality of life in the jewel of the Okanagan,” said Butler.

Gowie lands spot in Dinos’ den KEVIN MITCHELL Morning Star Staff

Danielle Goyette and Gina Kingsbury won a pair of Olympic hockey gold medals together with Team Canada. Rebecca Russell played for Canada’s Under 22 women’s team and coached under Goyette with the University of Calgary Dinosaurs last year. Between them, the name Alex Gowie kept coming up in conversation, and the adjectives describing the Vernon product were all glowing. She is now property of the Dinos. Gowie sniped 31 goals and 56 points in 52 games with the Penticton-based Okanagan Hockey Academy Female Midget AAA team this season. Her head coach was Russell and the assistant was Kingsbury. Russell, a Newfoundland native who played university hockey at St. Lawrence in New York, said the 5-foot-8 Gowie strives tirelessly towards achieving her goals on and off the ice. “Alex is a great kid, a well-rounded kid and very mature for her age,” said Russell. “The skill she has, for the short time she has played, is amazing. She has speed, she is a great skater and over the last year, she’s learned the game. She could go north-south with her speed, but she’s developed her whole game. I think she’ll fit in nicely with the system Danielle has in Calgary.” Russell figures since the Academy players are on the ice every day and learn to juggle hockey and studies, Gowie will be a well prepared student-athlete at U of C. Gowie, an 18-year-old left winger who shoots right, got a late start at age 11 at the coast. Her

family moved to Vernon when she was 14 and she played Bantam for Paul Bourgeois. She helped the Okanagan Rockets win the provincial Midget AAAA title last year, her second with the team. “I had always dreamed of going to the States somewhere until this year,” said Gowie. “I had received an offer from Minnesota and I had looked at McGill (Montreal), but Calgary was a better fit for me. The school’s better for kinesiology. “They’re closer to home, the team’s getting better and I think I can help them become one of the best teams in the Conference.” The Dinos went 16-6-2 in CIS Canada West play last season, getting swept in two straight games by the Manitoba Bisons in the playoffs. Gowie, who promises to bring wheels, a strong work ethic and a relentless forecheck to Calgary, played with Team B.C. in an exhibition series with the UBC Thunderbirds and said the level of play “wasn’t huge.” Gowie was second in OHA scoring behind linemate Carling Chown (30-30-60), while serving as an alternate captain and seeing loads of powerplay ice. She will graduate from Pen-Hi this month. Goyette, who carried the Canadian flag in the 2006 Turin Olympics and retired two years later, at 42, also likes Gowie’s moxy. “She’s a really good kid. Being on the ice every day playing with better players has helped her improve so much. She’s a tall girl, an offensive player and she’s gifted. She just needs to learn how to play away from the puck. She has natural talent with raw skill. She’s a quality, good person so you know you have a good base.”

Dorey setting sights on Sochi Olympics GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Ski halfpipe is set to make history with its inclusion in the 2014 Winter Olympics, and Vernon’s Justin Dorey is right at the forefront. Following the announcement of the fastgrowing sport’s inauguration at the upcoming Games in Sochi, Russia, the Canadian

Freestyle Ski Association received funding from Own the Podium to form the country’s first National Ski Halfpipe Team. As the Canada’s top halfpipe skier, and ranked No. 2 in the world by the Association of Freeskiing Professionals (AFP), Dorey was a no-brainer to be picked for the squad. “I’ve been waiting for the official announcement for over five years. Now that

it is finally official, I have my eyes on the prize and I can go ahead and begin my three-year game-plan to go to Sochi and compete for Canada,” said the 22-year-old. Over the past three seasons, Dorey has assembled a highlight-package resume that includes three podium finishes at Winter X-Games, gold at both the AFP Championships and inaugural U.S. Grand Prix, and numerous Dew Tour medals. He is also the first skier to land a switch double cork in competition and has earned rock-star status in one of the world’s most exciting sports. “Coming from a small town like Vernon has really made me appreciate the lifestyle I get to live. Over the past few years, I’ve had the opportunity to travel the world and make friends all over the place – from Scandinavia to New Zealand,” said Dorey. “Without skiing, I wouldn’t have been able to see the world like I have, or meet the people I’ve met. I’m so fortunate to be in the position I’m in and definitely couldn’t have gotten here with the support of my friends and family.” Dorey, one of nine athletes on the Canadian team, recalls a time a few years back when he felt the sport’s increasingly difficult daredevil maneuvers might push him beyond his comfort level. As is the nature of ski halfpipe, athletes continually push one another to go a little bit higher, take a little more risk. It is the reason why Dorey cites his first

double flip as a career highlight. “A few years ago I swore that I would never do a double flip in the pipe and that if the sport ever got to the point where I had to do one to stay competitive, I would quit,” explained Dorey. “Since then I’ve learned seven different variations of double flips in the last couple years. I’ve learned to never say never.” Expectations are that ski halfpipe will be the hottest new sport at the Sochi Games. During the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, snowboard halfpipe earned a live audience of 30.1 million viewers, the highest rated sporting event of all time. Ski halfpipe already enjoys a large fan base because of competitions like the X Games and Winter Dew Tour, attaining more than 80 million viewers in 122 countries world wide. During his shortened off-season (midSeptember through mid-November), Dorey likes to stay active by mountain biking, jumping on trampolines, skateboarding, surfing and when possible, he comes back to enjoy life in the Okanagan. “Although I love travelling, there is nothing better than coming back home to Vernon in the summer, there is really nowhere better than the Okanagan at this time of year. “I think it’s really important to be a well rounded athlete instead of focusing only on one sport because they all complement each other, making us better athletes.”

The Sonics shined in Monday’s skills competition with Peterson finishing second in putting, Kozak third in sand shots, Lacasse fourth in chipping and Phillips sixth in long drive. “I’m really pleased with all the boys in their play and their representation of Seaton and our zone at provincials,” said Stevens. “It was a great experience for our younger players who look forward to advancing to provincials again in the near future. We expected a strong performance from Conner and got it. Matt came through big

time on both days playing his best golf of the season. Steady and unwavering under pressure, Christian delivered good scores that helped seal third spot.” Meanwhile, Randy Todosychuk of the VSS Panthers had a terrific provincial AAA tournament at The Dunes in Kamloops, shooting 73-75 to tie for 10th. “Randy annihilated the par 3s with the best individual average of 2.75,” said VSS coach Richard Spiller. The Panthers, who definitely drew some attention for their pink shirts, finished 19th (659) in the team portion. Brady Stead was solid with a pair of 76s, earning a KP on the 190-yard 13th hole Saturday, just four feet, two inches from the cup. The tournament was won by Gleneagles Talons of Coquitlam, at 7-over 583.

After building up a 14-13 halftime lead against the Totems, head coach Rick Smith said the Maroons “fell apart in the second half.” Down early, the Maroons rallied on a long run for a try by Greg Hyde, who

fended off Aldergrove defenders with some wicked straight arms. Chris Saunders, who plays on the wing, added the other first-half score, both converted by hard-tackling Dalton Anderson. Fulton scrum-half Nick Pantaleo supplied a late try with the game already out of reach. Brad Sarazin and Anderson handled Fulton’s offence against the Hurricanes.

Lynda Palahniuk of Kelowna carded a 5-over 76 Wednesday to win the low gross portion of the Spallumcheen Golf Club’s Ladies Amateur Open. Palahniuk, 59, won the B.C. Senior Women’s title in 2002 before taking the ‘03 national crown. She was runner-up at the ‘07 Canadian tournament. She moved to Kelowna in 1996 from Winnipeg. Palahniuk was inducted into the Manitoba Golf Hall of Fame in 2009. She recorded one long drive in the Spall Open. Joan Widdifeld of Shuswap Lake Estates claimed the low net title at 62. Renata Zimmerman of Spall, at 77, won the first flight low gross ahead of Heather Dutchman, at 82, and Doris Tower and Eileen Sallis, both at 85. Low gross winners in the other flights were Marg Griffin, at 91, Gloria Teunion, at 92 and Tammy McBride, at 97. Maureen Turner of Vernon topped the first flight low net with a 68, while other flight champions were Gloria Regier, at 69, Sharon Ballinger, at 71, and Pat English, at 69. Ronnie Cook of Vernon was second low net in the first flight at 70, while Carolyn Berube of Spallumcheen was

Dave Ingram claimed the overall low net title at 69, while flight low net winners were Don Helm, at 71, Thomas Dendy, at 81, Larry Doyle, at 83 and Mike Evanishen, at 90.

Grant, Payne and Sarazin, with Thomson completing the scoring with an emptynetter. In a rematch against Coquitlam, the Legends started off with Orr exploding for four goals and Sarazin adding one, but Coquitlam answered with a pair to end the first. Coquitlam went on the attack in the second frame, scoring four times. Payne and Sarazin answered for North Okanagan. Tied 8-8 at the end of regulation, the two teams wearily battled into a second 10-minute overtime period where Coquitlam netted the winner. Coaches Jeff Connauton and Kent Connors were proud of the Legends’ performance. “They gave everything they had but the penalties ended up being their demise,” said Connauton, who noted Sean Connors, Mike Hanley and Chelsea Wiesgerber for playing a crucial shutdown role. Netminder Tyler Landry was instrumental in making some amazing saves. Devan Pipke was unable to play due to a broken hand, but was on the bench every game working the gate, filling water bottles and supporting his team.

The North Okanagan Butcher Boys Legends settled for silver at a Midget A2 lacrosse tournament last weekend in Chilliwack. Jordan Orr opened the scoring four minutes into the game, Chris Inscho supplied a deuce and Connor Payne and Liam Drabiuk each added singles as the Legends opened the tourney with a 5-4 win against host Chilliwack. Assists were supplied by Payne (2), Liam MacPhee, Jake Thomson and Orr. After a 4-0 shutout loss to Coquitlam Saturday, the Legends rebounded by doubling Ridge Meadows 4-2. Goals were scored by Payne, Jonathan Grant, Ryan Sarazin and MacPhee, with assists from Orr, Dustin Copeland, Mitchell Anderson and Thomson. Facing a Nanaimo team that had shut the Legends out 6-0 two weeks earlier, the Legends exacted some revenge with a 5-3 win to advance to the gold-medal game. With North Okanagan trailing by two goals, Payne got his team on the board with five minutes remaining in the first. Down 3-1 early in the second, the Legends answered with three straight goals by

Unity crew hauls MMA medals

Morning Star Staff

Morning Star Staff

Unity Martial Arts members claimed 17 medals at the 32nd annual Can-Am International Championships this last weekend at the Olympic Oval in Richmond. Mia Robinson, six, took silver in grappling and bronze in pankration, which is like mixed martial arts (MMA), but with no striking on the ground. Kobi Marchand and Clack Lejeune, both seven, recorded gold and silver respectively in grappling. Taylor Robinson, nine, collected gold in pankration, while Rylie Marchand, nine, took silver in both san shou (kick boxing with takedowns) and pankration. Ross Lejeune won gold in san shou and silver in pankration, and Trevor Feeney, 14, won gold in san shou and pankration. In adult action, Cara Funke earned bronze in grappling and gold in pankration, Corey Killborn struck silver in san shou, Brody Raffan took gold in pankration, Eric Sundquist won silver in both san shou and pankration, and Jake Elliot won silver in grappling. “In all, I think our team did very well and we showed that even with a smaller team we

In fact, a few of our members fought in weight classes above there own to get a better feel for it,” said Unity MMA head instructor Raja Lee. Aside from a few injuries, Unity members will resume preparation for their next tournament in the fall. “Now we are back to the drawing boards just retooling for the next event and sharpening our skills for what’s to come,” said Lee, who welcomes newcomers to the sport. Meanwhile, Taylor Robinson and Rylie Marchand will compete at the MMA Expo in Vancouver for UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) 131, June 11-12. They will then head to Las Vegas to compete at the U.S. Pankration Championships at Xtreme Couture Gym, owned by UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture, on June 25.

The Armstrong Shamrocks extended their win streak to three games with a 6-5 Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League win over the Kamloops Rattlers Wednesday night at Nor-Val Sports Centre. With the game tied 5-5, Willy Hanley cut out of the right side, received a nice pass and buried a low shot for the winner. Owen Barker lead the Shamrock attack with a hat trick. Armstrong, now 5-3-1, jumped out to a 4-1 first period lead, however, the Rattlers rallied with five unanswered goals to take a 5-4 lead midway through the third period. Barker equalized with his third of the night on a laser shot from the point that found the top left corner. “It was an ugly win tonight, but we’ll take it,” said Shamrocks’ head coach Pat Nelson. “We didn’t seem mentally prepared and were a step behind tonight but fortunately we came out on top.” The baby Rocks are back in action tonight (6:30) as they open the annual Lacrosse Night in Lacrossville doubleheader against the Vernon Re/Max Tigers (2-5-1) at Nor-Val. The senior Shamrocks (4-2) and Tigers (2-3) will square off immediately after (roughly 8 p.m.) in an Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League tilt. Shamrocks’ GM Chad Pieper says the Lacrosseville event is meant to honour a century-long rivalry between the two

communities. “We’ve been playing lacrosse against each other in one form or another other since 1904,” said Pieper. “Lacrosse truly is our community’s official sport and it’s always fun to honour that tradition with a great night of entertaining lacrosse action in front of a full house.” Adding to the festivities is the Shamrocks’ partnership with Askew’s Foods and Kraft in the Kraft Celebration Tour 10-in-10 promotion. Armstrong has nominated the Hassen Memorial Arena for a chance to win one of 10 $25,000 community awards from Kraft and a live TSN SportsCentre broadcast from the town. The hope is their nomination will garner enough support through online voting and community engagement to help win the prize and complete some much needed renovations to the building, including a heating system for the winter months. “Askews is really excited to lead this promotion and work with the Shamrocks teams. This contest fits perfectly with our company’s philosophy of giving back to the community,” said Ryan Nitchie, the baby Rocks assistant coach and Askew’s employee. Following the game, as is tradition, the junior Shamrock rookies will be donning their most flamboyant frocks and selling 50/50 tickets in the stands during the senior game.

Cole meets Captain Kurt Tucker boys lift Turn-Key Editor’s Note: Cole Strilchuk is a 10-year-old aspiring sports writer in Grade 4 at Kidston School. He is a hockey fanatic who had his Q&A interview with former Vancouver Canuck captain Orland Kurtenbach published in Insider’s Edge. Here are some excerpts... Cole: What kind of leader did you try to be? Orland: A leader? I would try to be someone that led on the ice and in the dressing room, when required, and to be tactful with my teammates and make sure that if I could be helpful in any way to them Cole Strilchuk or their families and also it’s important to have, and continue to have a good image, when you’re out in public. Cole: You’ve played with and against a lot of hockey Hall of Famers, and a lot more amazing players. Who do you think was the hardest to play against? Orland: Well, when I played in the old six-team league there was six teams times say 16, 17 hockey players so there was only roughly 100 hockey players in all the league as compared to 30 teams now with 25 players or more signed and playing. So there was basically three lines and five defencemen, and you had to be a good hockey player to make it in the old six-team league, and if I look at all the players that I played against in junior, semi-pro, when I played in the minors, and the NHL I would say that Bobby Orr was the most talented and would still be. Bobby Hull was the most exciting. Cole: Who was the toughest goalie to score on? Orland: I found them all tough. Because going back to the six-team league you had six goaltenders. Glenn Hall. Terry Sawchuk. Johnny Bower. It went on. And you only had six teams so you only had six goaltenders and they played all 70 games because basically you were as good as your last game and if you didn’t play, somebody else would be in there so they had tremendous, tremendous goaltenders. Cole: How did you feel about presenting Henrik Sedin with his captain’s jersey? Orland: Well I felt very honoured. In terms of who was going to be captain. They sort of kept it under wraps very well and they were very good in keeping it secret and come the opening game I had a bit of an inkling who it might be, but in any case for them to appoint Henrik as captain I thought was very apropos in that he was the Hart Trophy winner, the scoring leader, and he’s paid his dues here in Vancouver. Cole: What was the highlight of your career? Orland: The highlight was meeting my wife. Now you see, that’s called showbiz. That might come on the air sometime and I want to make sure she gets that first. The highlight of my professional hockey was the day I stepped on the ice at Madison Square Gardens with the New York Rangers. I was getting over the boards, I was playing with, I can’t remember maybe (Dean) Prentice and (Andy) Bathgate and I was waiting for a centre man to come off and Bobby Hull lost his stick, buzzed by and he took the stick out of my hands. Can you imagine that? Thief! Madison Square Gardens. I chased him. Give me back my stick! Cole: How do you feel being the first Canuck into the Ring of Honour? Orland: Again, I felt as honoured being the first captain as being the first inductee into the ring of honour. There are only two jerseys hanging and rightfully so to an extent. (Stan) Smyl and Trevor Linden. And Markus Naslund’s is going up in December. I think he’s coming back for that and it’ll be very nice to see. But to have only three jerseys up there after 40 years is just a little disappointing to me. There’s so many good players that have been here. Kirk McLean’s jersey, I feel should be up there. But in any case I’m very happy to be

GUEST SHOT

honoured to be their first inductee. Cole: Do you have any of your old hockey gear? Orland: No. I do not. Because when I retired, I went coaching in Seattle for the Canucks and in those days the collectors bought those. They bought ‘em from trainers and we never did see them. So, that was it. Cole: What advice would you give to someone my age? Orland: If you’re playing hockey just enjoy it. What happens now is that when you get to be 12 years old there’s going to be all kinds of, I hope your parents don’t get this way, but parents think at 12 and 13 that their kids are going to be NHLers and they put all kinds of pressure on these kids. Alright? Now you just took my soul right out of me. I’ve never said that before. You got out the best in me.

The Tucker brothers took TurnKey Controls to a 2-0 win over Eagle Homes in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League action Wednesday night at Marshall Field #3. Older brother Nathan Tucker scored first goal with a well-placed, left-footed strike from just outside the 18-yard box. In the second half, younger brother Preston Tucker used a clever flick on to himself from a Chris Harris cross to help beat a defender and bury Turn-Key’s second goal. Eagle Homes had their chances, but keeper Greg Douma was sharp and earned his first shutout of the

year in front of a solid defensive line. The midfield core of Evan Moore, Jeremy Kler, Jordan Bell and the Tucker brothers had a great possession game as Turn-Key won its first game of the season. Monashee Surveying got two goals from striker Alberto Lopez in a 4-1 victory over Davidson & Co. Dynamite at Marshall Field #5. Chandler Marsh and Darren Nobrega, on a one-time striker off a Mike Arding corner, completed the Monashee offence. Dom Oshanek scored for the Dynamite. North Enderby Timber got a rocket free kick goal off the post and in by Devin Janke to tie Revelstoke 1-1.

Make way for two musical cyclists when they bring The Wheely Slow Cooking Tour to the North Okanagan KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Any cyclist who has had to swerve angry cars in a desperate attempt to get to work on time will relate to Shera Kelly’s A Bicycle Commuters Anthem. The theme song heard on local radio for Bike to Work Week all this week, Kelly lives by her words and her wheels. She’s survived ghastly helmet hair and her share of close encounters with those motored road machines while making her daily commute from her home in Vancouver’s Kitsilano Beach to Granville Island, where she works at a hammock store. It was after one of those encounters that Kelly, who actually grew up in Armstrong, decided to write her “anthem.� “I’ve been big into bikes since I graduated (from Pleasant Valley Secondary School). They’ve been my main mode of transport, so I wrote a song about it.� It was actually a hit and run accident that really instigated the song. Kelly was left lying in the middle of a downtown Vancouver street, but luckily wasn’t badly injured. “Someone wrote the licence plate down and let’s say justice was done,� she said. However, it was when Kelly’s friend also suffered a hit and run soon after that she decided to do something about it. “I thought, ‘that’s it!’ and I wrote the song,� she said, adding A Bicycle Commuters Anthem, also the name of her CD released back in February, has received quite a bit of attention since. Not only was she able to give proceeds from her sold-out CD release show in Vancouver’s Media Club to the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition and Better Environmentally Sound Transportation, the cycling advocate and former bike courier was featured in the international pro-cycling mag Momentum. The album received even more attention when one Vancouver critic wrote, “Even if you’ve always dreamed of bringing a bazooka to a Critical Mass gathering, that won’t stop you from loving Shera Kelly’s outrageously charming ode to two-wheeling through Vancouver.�

Singer-songwriters Julia Spitale, left, and Shera Kelly bike, eat and perform their way through Western Canada on their new tour that brings them to Vernon and Armstrong June 11 and 12. “I had to respond to that one,� said Kelly, adding the bazooka line had a few of the city’s cyclists angry at the reviewer’s poor choice of words –– especially since a driver in Brazil had recently mowed over a group of cyclists.

Let’s hope Okanagan drivers, and critics, are a little more sensitive when Kelly pedals her way, with fellow indie-folk artist Julia Spitale, to her old stomping grounds. She and Spitale are bringing their Western Canada tour, entitled The Wheely Slow

Cooking Tour, to the valley June 11 to 13. The tour, which stops in Vernon and Armstrong, combines the passions of both artists –– music, cycling and food. “I am so stoked to come back,� said Kelly, who lived in Armstrong from when she was eight years old up to graduating high school. “My parents moved from Armstrong a year ago, but my dad is in Vernon and my mom is in Kelowna and I have lots of friends in the valley.� It’s Spitale, who owns her own business, Cottage Cooking, where she goes into someone’s house and prepares a meal from the ingredients they already have, who will provide the fuel on the journey. The women will be staying with family members, friends and some strangers, visiting a farm in Alberta and performing at another farm on Salt Spring Island, while on their commute. And to thank them, Spitale will prepare a meal from scratch, using the ingredients she finds in the fridge, at each residence where the women stay. “There is no specific menu and I usually cook with only four ingredients, depending on what people have. In other words, I don’t buy stuff,� said Spitale who learned to cook from her grandma and mother and left her job in community development a year ago to explore her passions. A singer-songwriter in her own right, Spitale released her album, Songs from the Cottage, in 2009 and she just released the single, Women or Man #4. “I plan to keep releasing singles,� she said. With Spitale and Kelly set to start their tour at the Velopalooza in Vancouver June 10, which includes a quick bike ride through the city before ending with a backyard concert at Kelly’s house, the women will be driving on the longer parts of their journey across Western Canada. However, they will be renting bikes in each of the communities they visit. “We are looking forward to the rides in each town,� said Kelly. “We would love to go on a bike tour where we ride from one organic farm to another organic farm.� “That will be our next tour,� added Spitale. Shera Kelly and Julia Spitale bring The Wheely Slow Cooking Tour to Vernon’s Talkin’ Donkey June 11 at 7 p.m., and to The Armstrong Inn June 12 at 8 p.m..

An Idol alum to remember Jennifer Hudson: I Remember Me

T

hybrid created by Hudson’s predecessors, Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey and Tina Turner, hasn’t been changed drastically by Hudson. Her take on the style is subtle; her singing is less acrobatic and her songs more solid. As Hudson has proven her abilities and talents, she’s attracted the likes of R. Kelly, Alicia Keys and Dianne Warren to write songs for her and these propel the album on a sure course.

Hudson’s voice is a modern throwback to times when simple talent was enough for a successful career. The album has lulls in very few places and when they happen, they’re quickly pushed aside by some smooth sounds. The soulful Hudson has too much passion and creativity to allow much downtime. On I Remember Me Hudson behaves, delivers and performs like an old-school classic vocal queen.

I Got This is vocal he best thing to come out of the diamond dust, with a stunner callmorass and-response of American chorus that Idol is moves back Chicago-born decades in R&B vocalinspiration ist Jennifer to create a Hudson. new R&B/ She proved soul style that the show can work, Dean Gordon-Smith that hasn’t been heard if you sit in many a through the finishing school of tal- long year.

Don’t fight off these warm fuzzies Kung Fu Panda 2: ★★★★ out of 5

N

ot too often does the chance come along to praise a sequel as a better product than its predecessor. So let’s seize the opportunity: Kung Fu Panda 2 kicks the original’s big fuzzy keester. And really, the first film was pretty good. But Kung Fu Jason Armstrong Panda 2 is energetic, it’s funny, and above all else –– here comes the biggie –– it’s

AISLE SEAT

endearing. Jack Black couldn’t find a smidgen of a connection with his audience in the live action Gulliver’s Travels, but boy, does he hit ‘er out of the park as a bear. In this adventure, we find out why Po (Black), a roly-poly panda bear, was raised by a goose (it IS a good question), and introduces a new villain, a peacock known as Lord Shen (Gary Oldman), who was told a prophecy that he would one day die at the hands of “a black and white warrior.” Now, if that concept doesn’t give you a pretty good hint at Po’s heritage, well then, you’re really here ONLY for the jokes and fisticuffs, aren’t you? The movie, like the first film, makes effective use of its famous voices (a

rather impressive gathering that includes Angelina Jolie, Dustin Hoffman, Seth Rogen and Jackie Chan.) Like the recent winning animated flick Rio, the vocal performances aren’t flashy, but they fit. All of them. And while the picture itself is definitely amusing, Kung Fu Panda 2 isn’t overly silly. (Well, OK, save for the dragon costume devouring wolf thugs, then, uh, “digesting” them. Trust me, it might not translate well on paper, but it’s hilarious.) When a movie gels as beautifully as this one, both visually and emotionally, it’s easy to gush over. Pixar, you finally have a little competition. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

All-star cast leads Sondheim’s Company to theatre TORONTO –– Stephen Sondheim fans can enter Broadway via the big screen when musical Company is presented in high-definition at Cineplex theatres across the country, including Vernon’s Galaxy Cinemas, June 15 at 7 p.m. local time. A special encore presentation will be offered July 9 at 1 p.m. local time. Backed by the New York Philharmonic, Company stars Neil Patrick Harris, Stephen Colbert, Jon Cryer,

Christina Hendricks, Craig Bierko and Broadway legend Patti LuPone. “Captured live from the Broadway stage in New York City for this limited engagement, Company is a production rich with history that our guests can enjoy in high-definition on the big screen,” said Pat Marshall, vice president of communications and investor relations at Cineplex Entertainment. “Having the New York Philharmonic back

this stellar cast truly makes this production a must-see!” Originally produced on Broadway in 1970 and produced for cinemas by Ellen M. Krass Productions, Company is a concept musical composed of short vignettes, presented in no particular chronological order, that are

linked by a 35th birthday celebration for Bobby, a dedicated bachelor. Unable to fully commit to a steady relationship let alone marriage, Company follows Bobby, his three girlfriends and the five married couples who are his best friends. Tickets are on sale now at participat-

ing theatre box offices, through the Cineplex Mobile Apps and online at www.cineplex.com/ events or the mobile site m.cineplex.com. A special rate is available for larger groups of 20 or more. Contact Cineplex corporate sales at 1-800313-4461 or via email at corporatesales@cineplex. com.

Sound-Splash! members Neil Graham, Orion Miller, Marina Durham and Connor Johnston are home to release their new CD, Free Yourself, at the Talkin’ Donkey in Vernon Saturday.

Locals make a splash with new CD Morning Star Staff

They’ve been making waves in the Kootenays and now some local musicians are back home and ready to make a splash with their new CD. Consisting of four W.L. Seaton Secondary School graduates, Sound-Splash! has returned to Vernon to release its debut album, Free Yourself, at the Talkin’ Donkey Saturday. “Locals may remember the popular jam band Strawberry Jam from their frequent dances at the Donkey over the past few

summers. Strawberry Jam has morphed into Sound-Splash! with many of the same members,” said Orion Miller, SoundSplash! guitarist, who with bassist Neil Graham just graduated from Selkirk College’s contemporary music program in Nelson. Connor Johnston, who is about to enter his second year at Selkirk, and keyboardist Marina Durham, who has studied classical music for many years, round out the band. Sound-Splash! is touring its new album this summer playing at various venues around B.C.,

including Vernon’s Komasket Music Festival at the end of July. “Free Yourself is a funky blend of high energy, get-up-on-thedance-floor reggae, rock and hiphop,” said Miller, adding, “The party doubles as a fundraiser to aid the Talkin’ Donkey’s campaign to help victims of human trafficking.” Sound-Splash’s Free Yourself CD release party happens at the Talkin’ Donkey Saturday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. and cover is $5. Album is $8. More information is at www.soundsplashmusic.com.

Taking a walk for a cure CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

Type 1 diabetes is the most severe form of diabetes. It is a non-preventable autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. It happened that way to Baylee Cooney. She was five in the fall of 2008 and enjoying being in kindergarten at Falkland elementary school. She was getting over the flu when her mother noticed that she was urinating excessively and eating more than usual. “I thought she had a bladder infection and took her to the clinic,” said Jodie Gilman, who was surprised that Baylee was sent to the hospital immediately and stayed for four days while tests were done. “She was diagnosed within a couple of hours after we got to the hospital. It was a shock when they told me she had diabetes. I thought, where did I go wrong? She had always been healthy and never ate candy. All I knew about diabetes then was I thought it was from eating too much sugar.” Baylee’s father, Ron Cooney, who works as a commercial diver for off-shore oil companies, was on his way to Singapore for a new job when he heard the news. “I was afraid. I felt helpless. My little girl was in the hospital I just kept waiting for the phone calls and e-mails to hear how she was,” he said. Gilman said that type 1 diabetes was explained to her well, that the possibility of developing it (insulin insufficiency or no insulin at all) is in some people’s bodies at birth and is thought to be triggered in some way, in Baylee’s case, possibly by the flu she had had. Gilman learned quickly how to do the blood tests and the insulin injections, how to watch for signs of insulin imbalance, how to correct it, and how to make the family’s already healthy diet more suitable for Baylee. She is grateful for the help from hospital staff. Cooney learned the routine when he returned to Canada. “It’s a huge thing. You have to be diligent to have meals on time and give the injections. The first time I had to give her an injection it was the hardest thing I ever had to do as a parent,” he said. When Baylee was stabilized and returned to kindergarten, Gilman did a presentation for her class to help the students understand diabetes. Baylee understands that she has diabetes because her pancreas is not working and so do her sisters, Hannah Cooney, six, and Jaelynn Gilman, three. They have even tried the blood sugar tests so they know what Baylee feels like when she has to do it. “I have to check my blood sugar before I do gym or other things. When it is low,

Type 1 Diabetes ■ Type 1 diabetes is a non-preventable autoimmune disease that strikes children and adults suddenly. ■ Canada has the sixth highest incidence rate of type 1 diabetes in children in the world. ■ Type 1 diabetes affects more than 300,000 Canadians. ■ The number of Canadian children living with type 1 diabetes is increasing by three to five per cent annually — the greatest rise being in children aged five to nine years. ■ Complications can include blindness, nerve damage, end-stage kidney disease, heart attack, stroke, amputation and even death. below four, I feel like I’m very tired and maybe I need an injection,” she said. She also has to do blood tests at 2:30 a.m., 7 a.m., 10 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 5 p.m. and 7 p.m. and for any other activities, like bike riding. She needs five or more insulin injections each day, which she says sting. Cooney has taken Baylee traveling, to Hawaii, three hours back in time, and Florida, three hours ahead. He was apprehensive at first. “I didn’t know how she’d react but

I was very careful and we were able to make the adjustments. She’s very resilient. She gets her days when she doesn’t want to have diabetes anymore but she’s not ashamed and she will tell people about it when they ask, especially other kids.” Baylee has an insulin pump and will be using it by the end of the month after her parents can take the training. “It will be good to have the pump. The insulin injection will be more accurate and it will take the edge off, you’re always focused on knowing the tests have to be done. She will be able to sleep better,” said Cooney. Baylee is looking forward to being able to do more sports — she loves hockey and won two ribbons in cross country this year. And there will be no more injections. She and her parents will be at the TELUS Walk to Cure Diabetes June 12 at Mission Creek Park in Kelowna. The walk, now in its 17th year, raises money for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Canada, founded in 1974 by the parents of children with type 1 diabetes. Baylee will also be at the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation Family Fun Day fundraiser in Vernon June 11 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. at Polson Park. The event includes hot dogs, a bouncy castle, face painting and more. For more information, to join the walk or to make a pledge, see www.jdrf.ca/walk

Writer strikes the right note CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

A chance happening at a family outing to the beach turned into Hélène Clarke’s first published children’s book, Why Did the Osprey Poop on my Head? “That happened to my husband and he said it would make a good title so I decided to write the book for it,” said Clarke, who has been writing puppet scripts with her husband, Tim, for years. She always loved imaginative children’s books like Winnie the Pooh and the Narnia series and had taken a course from the Children’s Institute of Writing. “I had gone through seven years of rejection letters and when I sent this story out, it was with another book to a Tate Publishing in Oklahoma. They liked this one.” The book was selected for publication in January 2010 and published in March 2011. “It was quite emotional when I found out it had been accepted and then when I saw the actual book. The publisher chose the illustra-

tor and I got to work with him. I think the characters are great,” said Clarke. The picture book for children ages four to eight, tells about Timmy and his pet gecko, Joe, who know that God is good but wonder why bad things happen sometimes. “I enjoy writing for that age group and I know that if I’m enjoying what I’m writing then the kids will enjoy it, too. I have 20 nieces and nephews so I read it to them to see what they thought. The best compliment was when one nephew asked me to read it again. I like to see the kids laugh and see their excitement and their eyes light up.” Clarke has done readings at Vernon Christian School and will be reading at schools in Kelowna. She has written two more books with the same characters and has several other books ready for publication. “I would say to anyone who is writing to keep trying, to develop a thick skin to rejections and keep putting yourself out there,” said Clarke, who lives in Coldstream.

Before we married, I thought Sherwin was perfect for me. We enjoyed everything together, and he made me feel special. Once we said “I do,� however, I saw a different side. He spent most evenings on his computer or watching TV, no longer helped around the house and only wanted to pay onefourth of the bills since my two children and I also live here. I own my home. Sherwin threatened to leave me if I didn’t put his name on the deed. I refused since our marriage had been so rocky. So a month ago, he left, taking our savings and all my jewelry with him. I have not let him back into the house. He has apologized over and over and returned the money and jewelry. I am not mad at him, Annie. I just don’t trust him.

Activity BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL More than one opportunity may present itself to you of which you’ll want to take advantage in coming months. However, approach each one individually; that’s the only way you can make you way through them all.

PUZZLE NO. 203

GEMINI (May 21-June 20) No one knows better than you how vital it is to keep your financial affairs in good order. If you let your expenditures exceed your earnings, you’ll only have yourself to blame.

ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 100609

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Guard against inclinations to ignore a scheduled routine. If you decide to run your life in a helterskelter manner, it isn’t likely you’ll accomplish a thing. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Avoid injecting additional negative factors into something that may already be going badly. Getting angry and losing your temper won’t help, but it will pour more fuel on the fire. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Ignoring the request for a favor from someone who has helped you out many times in the past will reflect badly on you. Suggest another time if it is impossible for you to help out right now. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Don’t fret over the work at hand. Begin from where you are and see where it takes you. To do nothing at all will leave you in a worse state of affairs. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Usually you have the courage of your convictions, but if you allow self-doubts to plague you, you won’t be able to see beyond the impediments. Get back in character. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Don’t put yourself in a position where the only way you’ll be able to complete what you’re doing is to ask for help. People can’t always stop what they’re doing in order to comply. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Avoid teaming up with someone whose goals and objectives are totally different from yours. All

you’re apt to accomplish is the loss of your temper and a good ally with it. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) If you think you can breeze through an assignment unscathed where others have tried and failed, give it a go, but don’t be unduly disappointed if it proves to be too much for you as well. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It is good to think in positive tones, but resist a temptation to take on a troublesome assignment unless you have a totally new way of approaching it. Even then, tread lightly. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Bend a bit, if it will appease someone who is important in your life, as long as you’re not violating your conscience. Hopefully, this person will do the same for you when you are in need. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Even though a co-worker might tax your patience and good temperament, try to be tolerant and understanding of his or her behavior, especially if it’s unusual for this person.

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.

Voting packages will be sent out the week of June 13 to Vancouver Island and B.C. Interior locations, Elections BC officials said in a media briefing Monday.

A binding motion passed in the B.C. legislature is a firm commitment to all British Columbians that this government will keep its promise to reduce the HST to 10 per cent, Minister of Finance Kevin Falcon announced. As a result of the motion being passed, British Columbia’s minister of finance must immediately advise the Minister of Finance for the Government of Canada to reduce B.C.’s portion of the HST to six per cent on July 1, 2012 and a further reduction to five per cent on July 1, 2014, subject to a “no” vote in the HST referendum. Under the terms of the binding motion, the province will also provide one-time transition cheques of $175 per child that will be issued to families with children under 18 years old. In addition, lowand modest-income seniors will receive a one-time transition cheque of $175. These proposed changes to the HST, including transition cheques, will take effect only if British Columbians vote to keep the HST. “This binding motion makes it crystal clear to all British Columbians

Elbows up as legislature winds down TOM FLETCHER Black Press

The B.C. Liberal government has rejected an NDP request to extend the spring legislative session past this week, and pushed through its plan to offer a reduced rate for the harmonized sales tax. B.C. Liberal house leader Rich Coleman said the provincial budget and remaining legislation will be completed and passed by Thursday afternoon. That includes endorsement of the Yale First Nation treaty, limits to ferry fare increases, creation of a new police investigation unit and dozens of minor amendments to legislation. Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson said Tuesday he plans to vote against the Yale treaty, partly because the government is pushing the disputed

settlement of Fraser Canyon fishing territory through with only a few hours of debate. And the NDP says the B.C. Liberal government is using its majority to ram through the HST changes with inadequate debate. NDP leader Adrian Dix said the government closed off debate on the HST plan in less than a day, and switched debate on Premier Christy Clark’s office budget to coincide with game one of the Stanley Cup finals Wednesday, to distract the public from criticism. Coleman continued the hockey theme, accusing the NDP of “ragging the puck” after agreeing to debate all current legislative measures by the scheduled adjournment on Thursday. NDP house leader John Horgan said the

Speaker Bill Barisoff and Premier Christy Clark raise the Vancouver Canucks flag outside the B.C. legislature Tuesday. government’s reduction of legislature time is an affront to the citizens who elected MLAs to represent them. “We sat for four days the previous 10 months,” Horgan said. “We have a fourweek session to deal with a $40 billion budget and a handful of bills at the start that turned into 15 bills, one of which is a treaty.” Under the NDP government in 2000, the Nisga’a treaty debate took 147 days, and the same year hundreds of hours were spent debating ministry budgets, Horgan said.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Robert Byrne, an author and expert on pool and billiards, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are two kinds of people, those who ďŹ nish what they start and so on.â&#x20AC;? Sometimes a deal will have two different lines of play, depending upon the opening lead. In this example, how should South play in three no-trump after West leads either the heart eight (East putting in the jack if declarer plays low from the dummy) or the club three (East contributing the 10)? South reasonably opened one no-trump, showing 15-17 points. He added one point for his respectable ďŹ ve-card suit, and he had good intermediates: one 10, two nines and an eight. Declarer starts with six

top tricks: one spade, two hearts and three diamonds. After a heart lead, he should take the ďŹ rst trick in his hand with the king and run the spade nine. Assuming that ďŹ nesse loses, he takes the heart return with dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace, plays a diamond to his ace, and runs the spade jack. He hopes to take two spades, two hearts and ďŹ ve diamonds. However, after a club lead to the 10 and king, South does not need to rely on ďŹ nesses or suit breaks. He just returns a club. At the table, West won with his queen, so declarer carefully unblocked dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jack. South took the heart shift with dummyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ace, overtook the club eight with his nine, and drove out the ace. He had one

spade, two hearts, three diamonds and three clubs, and when the diamonds broke, he took 11 tricks, losing only two clubs. What would experts lead from the West hand? Most would pick the heart eight -- itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a major, and South rates to have the club king.

Maclean Helen Dorothy

Helen Dorothy (Dot) Maclean, (nee Goode), passed away peacefully on May 20th, 2011 at the Valleyhaven Retirement Community, Chilliwack, B.C. Born in Manville, Alberta on July 8, 1919, our mother lived the majority of her childhood and teen years in Bowmanville, Ontario with her mother, step father and seven siblings. She travelled to B.C. with a girl friend to find work and adventure. She succeeded in this goal by working on the steamship lines that travelled between Victoria, Vancouver and Seattle where she met her husband and the love of her life, Allan Maclean. After a long courtship they married and had two daughters. Our mother loved life, had a generous nature and was a consummate shopper having an eye for quality and a good bargain. After retirement, Mom (and Dad) moved to Vernon to enjoy the weather and lifestyle. She enjoyed many afternoons sitting on her patio on the shores of Lake Okanagan. Our mother enjoyed cooking, photography, shopping, reading, tai chi and the company of friends and family. She is predeceased by her parents, two brothers and her husband. She is greatly missed by her daughters, Denise (Rheal) and Crystal, Granddaughters Abbey and Ashley, Grandsons Brig (Trina), Kyle (Melissa) and great grandsons Morgan and Myer. Many thanks to the staff of Valleyhaven Retirement Community who cared for our mother when she could not. There is a celebration of life on June 5, 2011 in Vernon, B.C. at our mother’s home. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C.

In Memoriam

August 14, 1947 - June 3, 2010 All too soon our world turned dark, the sun gave up its’ shine, When God called down to me and said, “Donna, Bob is Mine.” It’s been a year since you’ve been gone, “Keep busy,” they do say, I try my best to carry on, every darkened day, But memories of you overwhelm each step along the way, And you’re not here to hold me tight and whisper, “All’s okay.” Since you’ve been gone the days are long, the nights are lonely too. Time stands still. I force my will to live life without you. I miss your face, your warm embrace, your presence by my side, And many times throughout the day, my tears I cannot hide. We miss the one who walked with us through life for all these years, Who laughed and cried, who loved and tried to wipe away our tears. A chapter in our lives has closed and new ones God must write, But you’ll be in our every thought from morning until night. Our family’s sad without you Bob, we’re doing all we can, But there is nothing in the world like the love of One Good Man!

Thank you Bob for sharing 42 years with me What an amazing journey! Love Donna

In lieu of flowers, friends wishing to do so may make donations in memory of Mary to North Okanagan Hospice Society, 3506 – 27 Avenue, Vernon, BC V1T 1S4, or to the charity of their choice. The family wish to thank Dr. Meyer, the staff at Polson Extended Care, Interior Health Care Aides and Hospice House. Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250-542-0155.
