There is no joy in Canuckville ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
onnie Ellett didn’t stick around long enough to see how things played out in downtown Vancouver Wednesday. Ellett, a Vernon mother of two, and grandmother of three, attended Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final at Rogers Arena with her sister, Antonette Stone, and was able to avoid the riots that happened after the Canucks lost 4-0 to the Boston Bruins. “We were parked in a good spot and were able to get out with no problems,” said Ellett, 90 minutes after the Canucks loss. “They were not the real hockey fans, the real fans were inside the arena, gracious to the very end.” Prior to the game, the atmosphere in downtown Vancouver was electric. Ellett and her sister arrived at Rogers Arena at 3 p.m. for the 5 p.m. start. “There were lots of people,” she said. “There were free hot dogs, huge lineups for face painting, people getting pictures taken with a Don Cherry statue. There was a rock band there. Everybody was happy and calm. There were crowds everywhere downtown.” Once inside, Ellett and Stone sat in club seats in Section 107 – “Close enough to see Tim Thomas butt-end Jannik Hansen” – and said the noise inside the building at the beginning of the game was “absolutely deafening.” “People were just screaming, our ears were still ringing an hour after

Ellett refused to stop cheering. “We had a feeling like they were still going to win, we didn’t give up,” she said. “We screamed even louder after that. But, in the third period, when it was 3-0, it was pretty quiet inside the building.”
Ellett, who saw the Canucks lose to Chicago in game two in both 2010 and 2011, rated the experience of Game 7 “an eight.” “Being with my sister hoping to see the Canucks win the Stanley Cup in Game 7, that was great,” said Ellett. “It might not happen again for us. We were disappointed in the way the Canucks played. The crowd was gracious at the end and gave the Bruins a big cheer as well.
“The crowd waited until (Boston forward Milan) Lucic got the Cup, he’s from Vancouver and he was waving to his friends and family. Once he got the Cup, everybody left.” At Checkers Bar and Grill in the Best Western Vernon Lodge Shane Whitley and Heather Jenkins arrived at 4:30 p.m. to watch the game on the big screen TVs with friends Shelley Dove and Kaylon Fisher. Decked out in Canucks’ home blue
uniforms, Whitley and Jenkins both expressed trepidation about the upcoming game. “I’m nervous, anxious, can’t wait for it to start,” said Whitley, whose uniform was adorned with No. 1 and the name “Luongo” across the back. “This day has dragged on and taken forever.” Jenkins grew up in Vancouver and wished she was in her hometown for the big game. “I miss not being there, I missed the
Olympics as well,” said Jenkins, who moved to the North Okanagan three years ago. Belinda Payton and David Loker arrived even earlier at Checkers, finding bar stools just before 4 p.m. “It’s so nerve wracking and I’m so anxious, I don’t know why I’m anxious,” said Payton, draped in a Ryan Kesler Canucks jersey, who predicted the Canucks would win 3-2 in overtime with Kesler scoring the winner. “I mean, I
know why I’m anxious.” Decked out in a Bruins white sweater, Checkers server Bridget Armstrong was hoping her attire would not result in smaller tips. “I’m a big Boston fan, I mean, I’m about 55 per cent Boston, 45 per cent Vancouver,” smiled Armstrong. “I’ve been a Bruins fan for the last 25 years. It’s not the first time I’ve worn the sweater in here. People have been good, for the most part. They appreciate the team spirit.”

News Firefighters scramble with boat blaze RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Coldstream firefighters experienced a first when they were called to a blaze on Kalamalka Lake. Reports came in just after 2:30 p.m. Tuesday of a boat on fire near the Kalavista Drive boat launch and four people in the water. â€œThree of them were sent to hospital with minor burns and the owner had minor burns but he stuck around to help with the recovery,â€? said Dave Sturgeon, fire chief. The 18 to 20-foot-long boat with an inboard motor was about 50 to 100 metres offshore. â€œWe tried to hit it with water but the water (pressure) kept pushing it out into the lake,â€? said Sturgeon. A jet skier eventually took a firefighter out to the vessel and a pipe pole was used to gain control of it. â€œThey pulled it into Alexanderâ€™s and we extin-
guished it there,â€? said Sturgeon. The fire apparently began when the owner tried to get the boat running. It sputtered and then there was an explosion in the engine compartment. â€œThe fire consumed the whole boat,â€? said Sturgeon. The blaze may linked to a gas leak or fumes in the engine compartment mixing with oxygen. Itâ€™s believed this is the first time the department has ever fought a fire on Kalamalka Lake. â€œWeâ€™re not really prepared for it,â€? said Sturgeon. â€œAll we can do is use the docks and do the best we can. We also have resources like Search and Rescue (which has a boat).â€? As a result of the fire, the department is issuing an advisory to all boat owners. â€œCheck the mechanics of your boat and make sure it is running properly,â€? said Sturgeon.

Kittens crowd shelter Community support is being sought for kittens that have overwhelmed staff and volunteers at the Vernon SPCA. The Haney Road shelter currently has more than 60 kittens in its care. “Many are so young they require bottle feeding and a lot of one-on-one attention,” said Corinne Ross, shelter manager. “It is overwhelming for staff and volunteers to deal with so many kittens on top of the demands of an already full shelter.” The SPCA is in need of donations, foster families and permanent homes for the kittens. The influx of kittens is being blamed on pet owners not being responsible, “Each year we have the challenge of caring for, and finding homes for, hundreds of unwanted kittens because cat guardians refuse to spay and neuter their pet,” said Ross. “This is a basic step of responsible pet guardianship and easily prevents so many unwanted litters in our community.” Residents wanting to surrender animals are urged to meet with shelter staff to provide background information on the cats. “We want to provide the best care possible for these animals and having as much information as possible about their background and health is very important,” said Ross. “When animals are abandoned or just dumped at the shelter door, it puts the animals in jeopardy and we lose the opportunity to gather the informa-
tion we need.” In a case this week, Ross stepped outside the shelter door to find a box with three eight-week-old kittens inside. The white kittens – who have been named Sami, Kesler and Burrows in honour of the Vancouver Canucks – were suffering in the heat. “There were cars in the parking lot and someone in the office, yet someone just left the kittens in a box outside in the blazing sun,” said Ross. “We urge people who feel they must surrender their animals to please do so in a responsible way so we can all work together to give these animals the best possible chance.” To donate to the SPCA or to find out about adoptions, call 250-549-7297 or visit the shelter at 4800 Haney Rd.

Two men are in custody after a report of a stolen vehicle from Lake Country Wednesday. Police were alerted at 4 a.m. by a caller who phoned to say his 1988 Plymouth Reliant had been stolen from his yard on Carr’s Landing Road. The caller had been sleeping and was awakened by the noise from the engine starting. When he got up, he realized that his house had been entered as well as his car keys were missing. Just 10 minutes later, an RCMP officer patrolling the area observed and stopped the vehicle. The driver and the passenger were both arrested and transported to the Kelowna detachment. They were released from custody on a promise to appear with August court dates. They are facing theft of auto and break-and-enter charges. Both men are from Kelowna and are known to police and have related criminal histories. The Reliant was returned to the complainant.
Sami, Kesler and Burrows are among the 60 kittens in care at the Vernon SPCA.

incurred,” said Lorne Pearson, a boater, in a letter to council.
The concept of paid parking at a busy boat launch has been put in neutral. Coldstream council will ask the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee to investigate the feasibility of paid parking at the Kalavista Drive boat launch. “We need to put it forward to GVAC and decide if we charge or not,” said Mayor Jim Garlick. Coldstream’s Kalavista neighbourhood advisory committee recommended that council pursue paid parking at the launch as a way of addressRichard Enns ing congestion and offsetting the cost of enforcement. GVAC will be asked to consider a fixed season pass for Greater Vernon residents, a parking meter that allows people to pay without having to go back to their vehicle with the ticket, meters that take credit cards and debit cards, the appropriate fee for parking and the present bylaw and policing costs for local jurisdictions. Council members insist that the present goal is only a fact-finding process, and no decision has been made on parking fees. “We are trying to put forward suggestions from the neighbourhood committee to the parks board,” said Coun. Richard Enns. However, opposition to parking fees is already starting to surface. “Now a person must launch their boat and then drive a block to park and run back to the launch to get their boat out of the way. Stopping to pay to park may add considerable time to this process if there is a line up to pay or a malfunction of the machines. We will see launch times increase and even more traffic backups and frustration

small lot — single and two-family dwelling to residential — medium density. Staff had recommended the application be denied because they believe it is contrary to the land use designation in the city’s official community plan. “Only 0.4 per cent of the lands within the municipal boundary are designated as residential small lot,” said Cleo Corbett, long range planner, in a written report. “This form and type of housing was identified as an important
component to meet the housing needs of families. Having smaller lots and smaller homes increases affordability without subsidies while still providing a traditional form of housing to meet the needs of families.” Presently, there is an old motel and three houses on the property, and the applicant defends the seniors-oriented proposal. “The statistics and statistical projections say that the percentage of population over 55 years of age will increase,” said lawyer
Tom Smithwick in a letter to council. “The proposed development will offer more housing options to this significant segment of the population. People who will move into the proposed development will sell their existing homes, most probably single-family dwellings. Additional supply of single-family houses will help keep prices affordable.” Coun. Patrick Nicol believes the proposed development should be considered. “The statistics indicate there’s a market for
it,” he said. Coun. Mary-Jo O’Keefe defends the decision to overrule the staff recommendation. “The advisory planning board voted in favour of it and that indicates there was some disconnect from what was being recommended (by staff),” she said. “I want to hear what the community has to say about this.”
Bacteria has forced the taps off at a rural Lumby community hall. A boil water notice has been issued for the Mabel Lake Community Hall on Shuswap Falls Road. “It’s an old system and there’s a concern that there may be contamination,” said Rick Fairbairn, rural Lumby director. Tests have indicated there is bacteria in the shallow well that serves the hall, which is owned by the Regional District of North Okanagan. “The source hasn’t been determined but bacteria is common in the environment,” said Al Cotsworth, RDNO utilities manager. Boil water signs have been posted inside and outside the facility. “There is rental of

Presently, solutions to the bacteria problem are being sought. “The alternatives may be drilling a new well or putting in a

purification system,” said Cotsworth. Accessing water from the adjacent Shuswap River is not considered an option.
“River water will also have bacteria from wildlife so we would still have to put a treatment plan in place,” said Cotsworth. A treatment system could cost upwards of $7,000. “It’s an issue we have to deal with and we just need additional information to determine the best way to resolve the situation,” said Al
McNiven, RDNO parks and recreation general manager. There is no timeline for upgrades and it’s not known when the boil water advisory could be lifted.

Not a brain among them
ot that any actual proof is needed to figure out that those involved in Wednesday’s Vancouver riots are brainless twits, but I present to you a gentleman named Brock. So proud was this man of apparently committing assault and arson in the wake of the Vancouver Canucks’ Game 7 Stanley Cup final loss to the Boston Bruins, he naturally posted his prowess on Facebook. “Maced in the face, hit with a Batton (sic), teargassed twice, six broken fingers, blood Roger Knox everywhere, punched a f----n’ cop in head with riot gear on knocked him to the ground, through the jersey on a burning cop car flipped some cars burnt some smart cars, burnt some cop cars, I’m on the news....One word....History :-) :-) :-),” wrote the genius, pictured on his Facebook profile with a friend, both wearing Canucks jerseys. Bad spelling and poor punctuation aside, he was so smitten with what he wrote he actually “liked” his own comment. His friend, Ashley – also clad in a Canucks shirt – commented on said post: “brockkkkk... take this down. it’s evidence!!!” Too late. Facebook has a page called “Vancouver Riot Pictures: Post Your Photos,” designed to help police and investigators identify those involved with setting cars on fire, smashing windows and looting downtown businesses. And this post is now part of that page and, as Ashley correctly pointed out, it’s now evidence. Have fun explaining your actions to the “f-----n’ cops” Brock. Of course, this isn’t a single case of stupidity. How about all those brave guys challenging the riot police? Didn’t you wish that one of the cops would actually club them into submission? Newspapers and TV stations, Internet sites, they’re all running photos and videos of

Wednesday’s perpetrators. Honestly, there isn’t much more I can add that hasn’t already been said. What happened Wednesday sickens me, and, as a native British Columbian, it shames me, it embarrasses me. Really, world, we’re not all like that. Remember our hospitality and spirit at the Vancouver Olympics? It’s my hope that those with cell phone cameras and video players snapping and filming away during the riots will do the right thing, turn their shots over to investigators or name people they know who are involved. It’s my hope that those who are identified are punished to the full extent of the law; that provincial court judges do not give those who are caught and found guilty a slap on the wrist; that defence lawyers get shut out at trial like the Canucks in Game 7. It’s my hope that some of those found guilty are put in front of media scrums, the way the Canucks and Bruins’ coaches and players were after each game, and have to answer questions about why they did what they did. I’d like to know. It’s also my hope that the police do not take the blame for what happened Wednesday. No way was it their fault. Mind you, one of the best lines I saw on Facebook in the riots’ aftermath was this: “VPD (Vancouver Police Department) should have called in (Bruins goalie) Tim Thomas: He stopped everything all night.” Unfortunately, the riots took away the spotlight from where it should have been, on Game 7. Thomas, of course, did stop everything as the Bruins won 4-0. Thomas deservedly won the Conn Smythe Trophy as playoff MVP. He was the best player on the ice for both teams. The way he played, you wonder how the Canucks managed to beat him eight times in seven games. The Bruins were, by far, the better team in the series and deserved to win their first Stanley Cup since 1972. Boston fans didn’t riot Wednesday. I shudder to think what might have happened in Vancouver had the Canucks actually won.
Barring slowdowns from the postal strike action, the harmonized sales tax mail-in referendum is underway across British Columbia. The packages include a ballot, instructions and three envelopes — and for those of you who generally toss out instruction manuals — don’t. In typical government fashion, though, the key thing to remember for the HST referendum is that yes means no and no means yes. Feel confused? You are not alone. The wording of the ballot reads: “Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (harmonized sales tax) and reinstating the PST (provincial sales tax) in conjunction with the GST (goods and services tax)? (Yes/No).” Remember the wise words of high school teachers everywhere and read the question thoroughly before marking your answer. Voting yes means you are in favour of scrapping the HST. Voting no means you’d like to keep it around. The cynic in us wonders if Premier Christy Clark’s government is counting on voter confusion as a way of boosting support for the tax at the ballot box. This is much like how the Liberals were planning an “education” campaign on the HST, which has since turned into an obviously partisan attempt to sway voter opinion in favour of the new tax. You may believe the Liberal’s change to a 10 per cent HST is the best choice. You may not. How you decide to vote is up to you. But be sure you are marking your ballot with your true intention, not out of confusion. - Salmon Arm Observer

Do the right thing
ell, let's see — there's Wyatt, Whetzell, DeJong, Giles, Aberdeen, Buchanan, Howe, Rendell, Postill, Kidston, Nash, Pope, Watson, Fitsmaurice, Wisbey, Tebo, Holtam, Jacques, Hofer, Kirkland, Grieve, Torrent, Webster, Ormsby, Cosens, Palfrey, Harper, Cunliffe, Sarsons, Husband, Waddington, Tassie, McClounie, Quirk, and others. These are all drives or roads in the Coldstream area that have been so designated to recognize families who have lived in our community since the early 1900s. Now we have a beautiful new park right on the lake that has been the Sovereign family property for many years. These wonderful people didn't just reside in Coldstream but over the years they have contributed significantly to the betterment of this whole area. Bishop Arthur Sovereign, along with his good friend, Carl Wylie, was a pioneer in the development of the Sovereign Lake Nordic
PRIORITIES ALL WRONG NDP leader Adrian Dix came to Vernon and said that if the NDP was in power, they would give the money to open up the necessary beds for Vernon Jubilee Hospital. This would be great news. Mr. Foster, lost without his dictator (Gordon Campbell) to tell him what to say, has said there is no money and it is easy for Dix to say these things, when he is not writing the cheque. Hmmm, no money, eh? The Liberals spent $2 billion on the useless Olympic Games. Useless for anyone outside of the Vancouver/Whistler area. But that is another story. But even if they can spend $600 million to fix the roof of BC Place they should be able to find the money for VJH. The BC Place only services Vancouver and immediate area. If they did not spend the money on BC Place (alone, how many other projects do we pay for, from the Interior, just for Vancouver) you could have paid for the money needed for the Vernon Jubilee. If you take just half the money for BC Place, $300 million here would be the breakdown. Mr. Foster said it would take $20 million to start up the two floors and $10 million per year to run. Well Mr. Foster, just by not spending frivolously on BC Place, to be home to two privately
Centre. A mural has been painted in downtown Vernon to recognize their part in our history. Bishop Sovereign was also honoured as Vernon's Good Citizen in 1957. Both Agnes and Art Sovereign gave tirelessly of their time and effort to so many charities and local organizations over the years. Agnes was honoured as the Good Citizen of the Year in 1991. Art founded the NONA Child owned, for-profit teams, by my calculations, you would be able to easily run those two floors for 28 years. Kind of easy to find the money if you look. But then Mr. Foster and his Liberals are the ones that like to close schools and make people lay in hospital corridors and Tim Hortons. Also maybe Mr. Foster needs to be reminded that Vernon Jubilee is inside his electoral jurisdiction. He should be fighting for the money, not just saying there is no money and then celebrating a new roof in Vancouver. Michael Olsen SAFE CROPS Re: Lumby digs into potential plant ban, The Morning Star, May 20. Contrary to Huguette Allen's belief, farmers choose to grow GM crops because they offer meaningful benefits such as increased yields and environmentally sustainable production methods. Farmers and consumers benefit from genetically modified crops and they're safe. GM crops are subject to Canada's strict regulatory standards which ensure that Canadians have access to one of the safest food supplies in the world. Extensive safety reviews are completed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Health Canada to ensure all products of plant biotechnology are safe for people, animals, plants
Development Centre which has helped countless children-at-risk and their families over the decades. Now through the generosity of the Sovereign family we have a new park in Coldstream that everyone can enjoy. Yet Coldstream council just can't bring themselves to name this beautiful family estate Sovereign Park, or even Sovereign Centennial Park, which would also be so meaningful. We citizens were asked to submit suitable names for the park. Could it be possible that no one thought to name it Sovereign Park? Seems highly unlikely! Many other family names have been recognized in Coldstream but these fine caring people. Seems as though we are missing out on a wonderful opportunity here. I would encourage others to contact Coldstream Council and encourage them to do the right thing. Gennie Vest and the environment. In fact, over a trillion meals containing plant biotechnology products have been consumed to date and there's been not one single report of any ill effect as a result. The reality is that biotech crops are a crucial component of agriculture today and they hold even greater promise for the future especially when you consider how they can bring health benefits to consumers by eliminating or reducing trans-fats; enhancing vitamin and antioxidant levels in fruits and vegetables and preventing blindness caused by nutritional deficiency in developing countries by increasing the amount of Vitamin A in rice. The fact of the matter is different regulations across Canada in various provinces and counties for genetically modified crops would make it even more difficult for farmers to market their products, especially when these same products have been deemed safe by our federal regulators who employ scientists whose expertise and jobs are to verify the safety of Canada's food system. Biotech crops are federally regulated and have been proven safe to eat. If consumers want to avoid foods derived from GM crops, buy foods that are labeled organic. However, they may miss out on the many benefits this technology has to offer. Lorne Hepworth President, CropLife Canada

VantageOne Credit Union has donated $5,000 to the event, now known as the VantageOne Canada Day Fireworks, set for around 10:15 p.m. July 1 at the army camp. “VantageOne’s generosity will provide us with additional funding to expand this year’s fireworks show by fiveto-10 minutes,” said Terry Schmauder of Vernon’s Canada Day fireworks committee. Schmauder was joined at the Vernon Fire Department Tuesday in making the announcement by VantageOne chief executive officer Glenn Benischek, Mayor Wayne Lippert, and area firefighters. Benischek said the donation will help enhance the fireworks display. “Thousands of our members watch the

On hand to accept the award were Topping and original Funtastic society member Mel Briggeman, current society president Brett Kirkpatrick and executive director Jim McEwan. “In those early days, the Funtastic society visualized the potential of using the DND’s (Department of National Defence) vast land and space,” said Topping. “It took 15 years and millions of dollars of investment to bring the softball fields into a reality.” When Funtastic started, there were only two softball diamonds at the army camp. Now, there are 13 and Topping said there was always plans for a 14th diamond to be built near the entrance off
Highway 97. “The development of these fields resulted in what many sports enthusiasts considered the finest softball complex in Canada,” said Topping. Kirkpatrick said Funtastic pumps more than $4 million into the North Okanagan economy through the event and subsequent spinoffs. “It’s good to be recognized,” said Kirkpatrick. “We have a great tradition that we are proud to carry on, and a great foundation in place to give back to the community.”

Chris Nelson has vivid memories of sitting in Nick’s Kandy Kitchen, on 30th Avenue, in the 1980s with owner Nick Alexis, John Topping, Frank Williamson and Stuart Fleming talking softball. Nelson, then the recreation director with the Regional District of North Okanagan, and the others would talk about the need for more diamonds for a burgeoning softball tournament called Funtastic. That tournament began with teams playing at Kin Race Track and on many high school and elementary school fields. Of course, the event, started in 1984, has now grown to feature more than 200 teams playing in Vernon, Armstrong and Enderby. In Vernon, a vast majority of the games, and the focal point for what is now known as the Funtastic Sports and Music Festival, is the army camp. Now a consultant based in Victoria, and a former member of the Recreation Facilities Association of B.C., Nelson was back in Vernon this week to award Funtastic the RFABC’s Gerry Morgan Memorial Award for outstanding service to a non-association individual or organization. “Funtastic just does great work in the community and shows its ongoing community support,” said Nelson. “What the society has done is all about adding facilities to the community.” The Gerry Morgan Memorial Award

Fire department celebrates RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR
Firefighters Matt Olsen (left), Chris Kulak and Brian Parsons join Sparky the fire dog in getting an engine all shined up for Saturday’s open house at the Vernon fire hall from 1 to 4 p.m. The event will include displays and an automobile extraction demonstration at 2 p.m.
Vernon’s fire department is celebrating a significant anniversary. A public open house will be held Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m. to mark the department’s 120th anniversary. “It’s a significant milestone for any organization to be involved in the community that long,” said Keith Green, fire chief. “The open house is an opportunity for the public to see what we do.” The event at the fire hall will include an automobile extraction demonstration at 2 p.m. while children will be able to visit with Sparky the fire dog. Special displays will feature the department’s history. “People will be able to see what firefighting was like 120 years ago,” said Green, adding that he is amazed at the efforts of his predecessors who relied on horse-drawn ladder trucks, ropes and buckets. “It’s amazing what these guys used to do on the job.” The department, which began in 1891, operated with volunteers until an individual was hired to drive the truck in the 1920s. Staffing has grown as the community’s population has increased. In 1950, there were six members and a chief and deputy chief. Currently, there are 53 volunteer firefighters at the downtown and Okanagan Landing halls while there are 25 career staff at the downtown hall. The Vernon hall also includes a chief, deputy
chief, training officer, fire inspector and administrative assistant. During Saturday’s open house, refreshments will be available by donation, with proceeds going to the North Okanagan Hospice Society. The fire hall, which has been used since 1965, is located at 3401 30th St., across from the RCMP detachment.

Emergency personnel respond to a three-vehicle accident at Highway 97 and Bailey Road Wednesday.
MVA sends one to hospital ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
An Alberta motorcyclist was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital Wednesday following an accident that occurred on Highway 97 south of Vernon in a construction area being designed to make the highway safer. The accident, which saw the motorcyclist sandwiched between two pickups, occurred at the intersection on Bailey Road just after 3 p.m.
Sunshine Festival on tap Morning Star Staff
Performers, clowns, entertainment and fun for all ages in downtown Vernon. The 17th annual Sunshine Festival is set to sparkle Saturday on 30th Avenue from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The event will feature many vendors for the sidewalk sale, including many downtown businesses. There will also be three entertainment stages including the main stage, the arts and entertainment stage and the Wentworth Music Education Centre stage. The children’s activities range from bouncy houses and face painting to an inflatable obstacle course, pony rides and a climbing wall. Dignitaries such as fire chief Keith Green (10 a.m.), school principals (Morris Vardabasso, VSS, 1:30 p.m., Malcolm Reid, Fulton, 2 p.m.) and Kiki the Eco Elf (3 p.m.) will volunteer in the dunk tank.
Vernon RCMP report that a Dodge pickup truck had stopped for a flag person in the construction zone, and that driver of a Kawasaki motorcycle followed suit. The driver of a 1990 Nissan pickup, from Kelowna, did not stop in time and hit the motorcyclist, pushing him and the bike into the back of the Dodge. The speed was reported to be under 40 kilometres an hour. The motorcylist, a 50-year-
old man from Canmore, Alta., was taken to Vernon Jubilee Hospital with soft leg tissue injuries. The Kelowna driver, 45, was charged under the Motor Vehicle Act with following too closely. Both he and the driver or the Dodge truck, from Vernon, were not injured. The highway was closed for a short time before being reopened to single lane traffic.

Students building pedestrian walkway RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Some Vernon students are wanting to provide a lasting legacy to the community. The global education class at Clarence Fulton Secondary School is constructing a pedestrian path from the school’s parking lot to a nearby wetland boardwalk. “We’ve been wanting to put a pathway in for a long time,” said student Jennifer Borchert. It’s expected that the trail, which could be done this month, would benefit local residents as well as students from Fulton and Ellison Elementary School. “They will be able to see the wildlife around them and see the beauty,” said Borchert. Praise for the students is coming from Vernon city hall. “It’s great to see the global education class taking the initiative to build a trail and young people showing an interest,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert.
“Adding another path in Vernon is awesome.” — Jack Gilroy An agreement is being sought with the Vernon School District and the City of Vernon to ensure that the trail is maintained. Council will consid-
er the request but Coun. Jack Gilroy is confident the students’ project will be supported. “Adding another path in Vernon is awesome,” he said.

T-Wolves bag Barton Resumes hoop career after year up north working on pipeline GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
Charles Barton needed a little time to sort out his life and get his head straight. He achieved that and then some when he took a year off from basketball and his studies at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops to work on the pipelines up north in Fort St. John. A year up there was all it took reaffirm some things he probably already knew – basketball is his passion and an athletic scholarship is his best bet to keep playing it. “It (Fort St. John) was different, just the lifestyle in general. I don’t think it’s for me, but I made some cash, enough for next year,” said Barton, a 6-foot4 Fulton grad who played two seasons at forward with the TRU WolfPack before his hiatus. “I needed a break from school and basketball. I just wasn’t sure what I wanted to study, and I also had some loans to pay off. My mind-set was ‘I’m here to make some money and I want to get back to school as soon as possible and get my degree.’” But instead of returning to Kamloops, the 21-year-old wanted “a chance for a fresh start” so he signed with the UNBC Timberwolves of Prince George. Despite being a tier lower than Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), Barton is happy to resume his court career in the B.C. Colleges Athletic Association (BCCAA). “It’s still very competitive, it’s just a lower level.” Barton kept his foot on the court by playing in a men’s rec league twice a week up north. It may not have been collegiate-calibre ball, but it was enough to fuel Barton’s desire to return to school. “The competition wasn’t that strong but it gave me the idea that I wanted to keep playing. I really missed basketball,” he explained. Since deciding to come back, Barton has spent the last four months sponging floor time wherever he can find it – namely Fulton, Priest Valley and
Dogwood gyms – to work on individual skills and shake off some of the rust. He has even found a few pickup games. “There are enough talented players around the area where I can get a good 3-on-3 workout now and then,” said Barton, adding he plans to head to Prince George soon for some workouts with head coach Todd Jordan and the T-Wolves. “It’ll take some time, but I still have three months to get myself ready, and I think I have the drive to do it.” Jordan believes Barton, with his sky-high leaping ability, will have little trouble rediscovering the form that allowed him to develop into a dynamic two-way player at TRU. “Charles will be a great addition for us. Personality-wise he will be a good fit with the guys and he has experience playing at the CIS level. He is a tremendous athlete and I think his abilities will complement our up-tempo style of play,” said Jordan, on the T-Wolves’ website. Another perk of playing with the Timberwolves will be a reunion with fellow Fulton star Joel Rybachuk, a terrier-like point guard who set up Barton for countless drives to the rim in their days with the Maroons. “You can’t base your decision on friendship where you’re going to go to school, but it was a factor,” said Barton. “We were both excited about that.” The Timberwolves went 16-2 last season, advancing to their third straight national championships. They won their first-ever CCAA title in 2010, and ranked fourth when they hosted the tournament in 2009. “They’ve been a winning team the last four years Joel has been there. He’s always bragging about it,” grinned Barton. “I’m pretty excited about the program and it’ll be nice to get some wins.” After studying education at TRU, Barton has decided to transfer into business at UNBC and will specialize in human resources. Barton is the fourth major commitment Jordan has received for next season. His recruiting class also includes 6-foot-10 local product Kevan Madsen, 6-foot-6 Gabe Aubertin of Kettle Falls, Wash. and 5-foot-7 point guard Billy Cheng of Richmond.

Kozak claims record third straight Zone 2 golf crown Morning Star Staff
Conner Kozak of Vernon carded a scorching 6-under 66 Sunday to claim his third straight Zone 2 Junior Golf Tour at the Revelstoke Golf Club. Kozak, a Seaton Grade 12 student with a UBC Thunderbird scholarship in his backpocket, shot a 73 Saturday to win by seven strokes. Tour convenors Larry Yamaguchi and Eric Breitkreuz announced that it was the first time in Zone 2 history a player had won
three consecutive Okanagan titles. Kozak was tied for second place with three others in the field of 50 after the opening round. Ayrton Mantha of Penticton was alone in the lead scoring an even-par 72 Saturday. Kozak and Spallumcheen Golf and Country clubmate Randy Todosychuk, along with Steven Lee and Nic Corno, both of Kamloops, were all one shot back. After the first hole in Sunday’s second round, Kozak and Todoyschuk took the lead
and never looked back. It was a two-man battle from there on in. After three birdies, Kozak finished the front nine at 3-under with Todosychuk at 1-under. Kozak reeled off four more birdies and one bogey to finish at 66 – his new personal best in tournament play down from a 68 in Future Links Pacific Championship action. Todosychuk finished at one-over for the day and second overall at 73-73-146. Mantha fashioned a 78 Sunday to finish
in a three-way for fourth at 150. Kozak, along with Kelowna’s Charlie Lewthwaite (77-72-149), Brett Moore of West Kelowna (74-76-150) and Lionel Taylor of Kelowna (76-83-159) were selected to the Zone 2 team that will represent the Okanagan at the B.C. Junior Championships, July 5-8, at the Rossland-Trail Golf Club. Kowan O’Keefe of Blind Bay shot 75-74149 to share third. Brad Jones (79-78-157) and Matt McEachran-Law (81-79-160) of Vernon will also compete at the B.C Junior.

Dr. Lee’s move closer to first Morning Star Staff
Dr. Lee’s Dental/Checkers shut down TED United of Salmon Arm 2-0 in a North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Competitive Division showdown Tuesday night at Marshall Field #2. It was a very defensive game in the first half with both teams having great scoring chances only to be stopped by good goalkeeping. The best chance came off the foot of Dr. Lee’s scoring ace Madison Kaneda from just outside the 18-yard box, only to have TED United keeper Alyssa Wilbur make a great diving safe. Kaneda was not denied in the first five minutes of the second half with a 20-yard rocket shot to the corner of the net. The play started from a quick throw-in from Becky Dodds to the sprinting Kaneda. TED United pressed for the equalizer, but great all-around defence from the entire Dental crew turned away their attacks. Lisa Arrotta came up big in net for 5-2 Dr. Lee’s Dental, stopping any offensive attack made by the 5-1-2 United crew. Andi King put the game in the bag for the Dental crew with eight minutes remaining, taking a great through ball from Dodds. The play began from the Dental crew’s side of the field with Kim Teichman finding an open Irene Arrotta through the middle, then Arrotta finding a streaking Dodds on the opposite side of the field. Stellar defensive play came from the entire Dental crew after losing sweeper Bobbi Cormier midway through the second half with a knee injury. Cindy Worth, Dana Reid, Teichman, Dodds, Jill Rintoul, Steph Wilson and Jacquie Hansen did a great job stopping TED United.
Blazers shut down Timber In other Competitive play, Eileen Pelliccia recorded her second shutout of the season as the AF Blazers toppled the North Enderby Celtics 2-0 at Marshall Field #1. Ally Cummings opened the scoring midway through the first, assisted from Bettina Berger. Goal of the match came in the second half with an amazing pass from all-star Angie Mendes to Carissa Morneau for insurance. Signi MacNeill & Jenny Hatten enjoyed many scoring chances for the Blazers (1-42), who are sponsored by Andrew Ference of the Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins. His wife, Krista, plays for the Blazers. Jane Higgins and Amber Maltman
were solid on defence. Paula Brownlee, Carley Major, Janna Cummings and Chelsea Ricketts sparkled in the midfield. In Masters Division play, the Controllers were reeling after a quick strike by Rene Cooke of Monashee’s before Jacquie Nuyens settled things down as she drew keeper Peggy Warnes out of position and made a clever pass back to Krista Backer for the tying goal 10 minutes later. Late in the first half, Sue Ghattas was denied in close, but minutes later, Nuyens cut one back and Leslie Epp put it in from close range to make it CORY BIALECKI/MORNING STAR a 2-1 final Controllers.

Orchardist families hurting JUDIE STEEVES
While Premier Christy Clark’s focus has been on families, that message isn’t resonating with local fruit growers. Joe Sardinha, president of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, says local orchardists have families too — and they’re hurting right now. Sardinha is urging consumers to be farm families’ allies and purchase locally-grown products when they shop for food for their families. It’s part of a promotion the BCFGA has launched to remind the general public of what makes this valley’s economy tick, and what it might look like without agriculture. Significant losses in the past three years have left apple growers in a very difficult position. Many have mortgages on their orchards, but with global apple prices so low, they’re not making enough income to keep up the payments. Sardinha points out there are 15 orchards up for sale in Kelowna alone right now, and two of those are bank-forced sales as a result of losses in the marketplace and an inability to meet their mortgage commitments. “Basically, it’s a lack of income,” he said. Newcomers to the industry are generally in the worst situation because they hold larger mortgages, he added. He said he knows of one grower who is looking at cashing in his RRSPs to keep his farm operating, even though that will leave him without a pension income in the coming years. “It’s negative net farming income.” As well, those who have given up farming and leased out the orchard, are finding those lessees are simply dropping the leases because they’re not making any money and that leaves them with the farm again. In the case of absentee owners, that means the orchard could become derelict. In the coming weeks, growers will be appealing to the community to support them by both purchasing local fruit, and by lobbying the provincial government to help develop solutions to the recent challenges faced by the orchard industry. That campaign includes a Facebook page called the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association where users can learn more about agriculture and the tree fruit industry, and provide feedback. Growers are locked into an Agricultural Land Reserve which they are required to maintain for the benefit of all, yet they are not currently making a living doing so, he pointed out. Sardinha said they are in discussions with the province for long-term support for the industry, which he estimates has an economic impact of
“Basically, it’s a lack of income.” — Joe Sardinha $300 million in the province, not including that of Sun-Rype Products Ltd. The association will request assistance with production insurance as well as with orchard replant or deer fencing. “The past three years has left the industry at serious risk,” said Sardinha. There are an estimated 850 growers remaining in the industry.

Relay helps organizations
Call us at 250.542-8677
Morning Star Staff
Two organizations will benefit greatly from a 24-hour marathon. The sixth annual Okanagan Money Mart 24 Hour Relay for the Kids raised more than $96,000 in cash donations for the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs’ Camp ArrowFlight in Spallumcheen and the B.C. Lions Society’ Easter Seals Camp Winfield. With additional in-kind support, the relay raised a total of $171,286. Runners and walkers circled the Apple Bowl Stadium in Kelowna relay-style for 24 hours, logging more than 3,400 kilometres, including 120 laps by eight-year-old participant Jonathon Welsh. Welsh surpassed his goal of 110 laps by 10:30 p.m. Saturday night in support of his older brother who has attended Camp Winfield for several summers. The top fundraising team was the Century 21 Assurance Realty Centurions raising $18,225 followed by WestJet with $5,260 and Site 360 MMM Hometown Heros with $4,932. Thank you to all the teams and volunteers who participated and raised funds to send kids to camp. Donations go to support the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs’ Camp ArrowFlight, situated on 82 acres in Spallumcheen. Camp ArrowFlight provides children and youth in the Okanagan with the opportunity to learn about the environment, the importance of being part of a team and about themselves through programming based on recreation, adventure and experiential learning. Like all Boys and Girls Clubs, Camp ArrowFlight creates a safe, supportive environment where children and youth experience new opportunities, overcome barriers, build positive relationships and develop confidence and skills for life. One-in-three campers receive financial support through the campership program to attend camp. Funds raised also go to the Easter Seals Camping Program which sends Okanagan children with disabilities to Camp Winfield for one-week camping experiences at no cost to their families. Easter Seals Camps give children an opportunity to build their confidence and independence, to spend time with other children with similar challenges, and gives them a sense of freedom and success not possible anywhere else. For more information, contact the Okanagan Boys and Girls Clubs at 250-762-3914 or go to www.24hourrelay.com.

Air races soar over village Morning Star Staff
Hang gliders again graced the skies over the White Valley during the annual Lumby Air Races at Freedom Flight Park. The event was held in conjunction with Lumby Days. “The weather was not great for all days, however, Saturday was good and most of the competitors from Alberta, B.C. and the U.S. raced around the village’s 10and 20-kilometre triangles,” said Randy Rauck, organizer. “Some of the foot launched gliders were in the air for more than three hours on course. Hang glider and paraglider pilots launched from Coopers Launch overlooking Lumby. They all carry GPS navigation equipment to mark their scores and computers calculate the top speeds after the race is complete.” Prize money was awarded in each category through the support of sponsors: Regional District of North Okanagan, the Lumby Days Society, Sheardown’s Super A Foods, Sun Dog Sun Glasses, Raven Aviation, Gilbert’s Auto Parts, the Blue Ox Pub, Irly Building Supplies, Northwing Design, Muller Kites and Deimos. “Special thanks also to Area D representative Rick Fairbairn, who joined the 55 out-ofarea visitors for dinner Saturday night, and Xanders catering for doing a fine job of feeding the hungry pilots,” said Rauck.

Marisa Vest watches as young dancers from all corners of the earth, decked in colourful regalia, take their cue on the giant stage. She dashes forth to help them to their respective spaces, and brushes an errant feather that has been blown out of place. As the music rises from the pit, Vest can only relax for a moment before the next scene change. Sheâ€™s been in this moment already 50 times before, and knows each cue, each part of the whole, like it was her destiny. She stands at the very precipice, helping dragons roar across the stage, and muscled acrobats and gymnasts perform incredible human feats. The W.L. Seaton Secondary graduate has come a long way from acting and hammering nails for Powerhouse Theatre productions to traveling from city to city with a cast of 52 professional clowns, acrobats, PHOTO SUBMITTED/ FACUNDO GIMENEZ gymnasts, actors and musicians, as well as the behind-the-scenes crew, as the stage Vernon-born stage manager Marisa Vest, below, and a cast of 52 international performers bring manager to one of the greatest shows on the critically acclaimed, Cirque du Soleil production of Dralion to the Okanagan this summer. earth: Cirque du Soleil.

stages its shows off the grid. It was while at Two Planks last summer that Vest received the phone call from Cirque. â€œI had applied over a year before, but at the time, they didnâ€™t have a space for me, but this time when I got the call, I went right through to the interview process and had a job with them within two weeks,â€? she said, adding that going to Cirqueâ€™s Montreal training facility was an experience she will never forget. â€œThe training space was huge. It had a wall of clowns and productions shots from all of its shows, as well as photos of all the artistic directors.â€? Now on the road since October, Vest has visited almost every major city in the U.S. as Dralion has travelled from coast to coast. And she never gets bored of watching the show night after night. A colourful blend of east meets west, Dralion follows the dragon and the lion in which the four elements of air, water, fire and earth come together in an elaborately staged interaction of movement and story telling. Vest has especially enjoyed working with Dralionâ€™s Chinese troupe of just more than 20 artists. â€œThey are incredible. They came to us in Montreal in August hardly knowing any English, and now theyâ€™ve learned English in addition to doing the acrobatics. Iâ€™ve even learned a few words in Chinese,â€? she said. â€œMost of the athletes have been doing this for years. The talent that it takes to do any of those things on any night is amazing. I see the hard work. They still stick to the humour with the clowns, but there is also the grace and artistry that Cirque is famed for all over the world.â€? Vest is also looking forward to her former teacher Brotsky, and her parents, who still live in Vernon, coming to see the show in Penticton. â€œItâ€™ll be lovely to be back in B.C. I havenâ€™t worked on any shows here since I graduated from UVic. I am pleased to get to bring a great show to my home province and almost to my home town. Itâ€™s a big feather in my cap.â€? Eight performances of Dralion are scheduled for the South Okanagan Events Centre beginning June 29 and running until July 3.

Homeboy is already there Morning Star Staff
Ve r n o n - b o r n , Vancouver-based hiphop artist, SonReal (Aaron Hoffman) is playing for his hometown fans Saturday upon the release of his hit single, Already There. SonReal debuted his first budget music video for Already There, featuring Rich Kid, on MuchMusic earlier this year. The single, originally off The Lightyear Mixtape, received nationwide recognition immediately and the video was added to the MuchMusic Top 30 Countdown in its second week, solidifying SonReal as the first solo urban artist from Vancouver to do so. Already There later went on to be nominated for Canadian
SonReal Hip-Hop Single of the Year at the 2011 Stylus Awards in Toronto. After a recent live performance on MuchMusic as well as attending the 2011 Stylus awards, SonReal has returned to Vancouver to get back to recording. With a Western Canada tour scheduled for the summer, as well as multiple video shoots, SonReal will be providing his fans with
new music and visuals to further build his fanbase and solidify himself as the next artist to blow from this side of the border. SonReal takes the stage at The Rockhouse (formerly Moe Joes Night Club) in Vernon alongside longtime friend and fellow artist, TassNata (Justin Nerling), as well as DJ Rich-A Saturday. This will be SonReal’s first performance in his hometown since the release of his most recent project, Where’s Waldo? Doors to the show open at 9 p.m. and cover is $5.

THE HANGOVER PART 2
★ PLUS ★
uper 8 is a movie produced by Steven Spielberg, a fact that becomes very apparent, very quickly. His fingerprints are all over this thing, and that’s a good thing. The initial suspense and overall nostalgia more than makes an impact before writer/director J.J. Abrams goes crazy with both boyish enthusiasm and a biggie size budget. Jason Armstrong A tale about small-town adolescence and mysterious space aliens, which, in this case, is an awfully good fit, Super 8 carries the vibe of projects ranging from Stand By Me to Close Encounters of the Third Kind. True, Abrams dabbles in Independence Day on the home stretch, but by that point, this is a likable enough flick that it’s easy to forgive such atrocities. Such a young cast carrying the weight of a rather hefty blockbuster is a rarity, and in one of the more refreshing happenings so far this summer, they carry it extremely well. Joel Courtney plays a shy kid who just lost his mom and whose dad, the local deputy (Kyle Chandler of Friday Night Lights), is ill prepared emotionally to play the role of single parent. So Courtney escapes reality by filming zombie movies with his buddies (Ryan Lee, Zach Mills, Gabriel Basso and Riley Griffiths). One hush-hush night shoot at an outof-the-way train station requires a “fresh

Oh, speaking of crush, when a speeding locomotive meets a truck on the tracks, the train station is pretty much flattened by the horrific wreck that follows. The kids narrowly escape meeting the same fate. But it’s what happens in the aftermath of the disaster that fuels the rest of Super 8. Something escapes from the demolished cars. And unlike previous Spielberg-inspired creatures, this one is sucking up more than Reese’s Pieces – it has a thirst for pets, car batteries and a few unlucky townsfolk.

I’ll give credit to Abrams. Yes, he slightly taints Super 8 with an unoriginal cop-out of a wrap up, but before it gets to that, he takes a lesson from his producer. Much like Spielberg’s Jaws, the monster in Super 8 is largely in the shadows for much of the film’s run. And that’s when a beauty like this works best; when our imagination is permitted to frighten us more than any director ever could. Why, so effective is Super 8 at drawing us in on the suspense front, you could even file it under the “they-don’t-make‘em-like-this-anymore” category. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Recorded in Trucks’ the mega-band. The group (all 11 Jacksonville studio, the debut is rich, grainy and of them), knows how relaxed, with songs and to mix as an ensemble, performances that go there’s no stepping on for inspiration without toes, so that the music
is a pulsing wave of sound that’s naturally textured and has the illusion of movement. Slide master Trucks, who should be nominated as the new “Hardest Working Man in Show Business,” acts as a featured accompanist, taking his solo turns in vocal bursts of expressive phrasing. The TTB uses its numbers to maximum strength in Bound For Glory, where they summon up a Baptist church gospel feel, which sits in the background of much of this recording. On a quick listen, one gets a good hit of molasses and mellow

Just in time for things to warm up seasonally is a new tour and album by B.C. one-man band Shane Philip, who makes his way to the North Okanagan next week. The new album, Life. Love.Music, is Philip’s fourth production, concentrating on themes of environmentalism, family life and love. “When a musician puts Shane Philip out an album, it’s part of themselves they’re putting out to the world,” Philip told The Comox Valley Record recently. “It’s exciting because it’s celebrating what’s going on in my life. I have a two-year-old boy, and a lot of it was written when he was young, at a time in my life that was very uplifting.” A Quadra Island native, Philip blends together an album of soft ballads and upbeat tribal sounds, including a heavier take on Bob Marley’s Exodus.
His signature didgeridoo is present on nearly every track. Produced by Victoria’s Joby Baker, who’s collaborated with Philip on previous albums and also plays bass and drums on the album, Love.Music.Life was recorded in only eight days. Said to have a very clear, polished sound, songs such as Lies feature Philip’s prowess on didgeridoo, while another track, Best Friends, showcases his trademark Weissenborn-style slide guitar. Philip combines both instruments with electronic drums, percussion and accompaniments, often played all at once, in his live show. He will be touring both the Canadian festival circuit and will be at a number of outdoor shows in the B.C. Interior this summer. Some of those include the Revelstoke Music Festival June 25, Riverside Park in Kamloops July 29, and nearby Sun Peaks Resort July 30 and 31. Philip hits up the wilds of Ashton Creek with an intimate show at Lorenzo’s Café, east of Enderby at 901 Mabel Lake Rd., Thursday at 8 p.m. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $10.

EDITOR: KATHERINE MORTIMER
Young writer becomes part of the story KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff
On a recent family vacation, Julia Palfreyman had the chance to visit Craigellachie, site of the last spike that completed the Canadian Pacific Railroad. It’s a popular tourist destination in British Columbia, but it’s one that has special meaning for the Grade 5 student at BX elementary school. Julia, 11, and her classmates in Tanya Kaempf ’s Grade 5/6 class recently learned about the history of the CPR and the thousands of Chinese workers who built the railroad, under often appalling conditions. “Mrs. Kaempf taught us about the CPR and the Chinese workers that came in and the way they were treated, and that they got paid less than the Canadians,” she said. As part of the lesson, Kaempf read Spirits of the Railway, by Chinese-Canadian author Paul Yee. It’s a tale that tells of the first Chinese peasants to leave south China for the New World. In this story, Chu embarks on a two-month long voyage to Canada in search of his father, a poor farmer who left his family months ago to find work. Chu finds work in Canada on a work gang, building the railroad. But there he encounters the bitterness of the Chinese men that were there before him, who experienced mistreatment and prejudice of the white overseers. For their assignment, students were asked to write their own short story, and were given about three weeks to work on it. “We had to write a story as if we were there with Chu,” said Julia, who has agreed to share her story, Silent Railway Deaths, with The Morning Star. Kaempf said the lesson put into practice a teaching strategy called Smart Learning, a framework that focuses on developing a higher understanding and lasting learning where students mindfully apply skills and tools to complex tasks. “So what you do is you break up text into chunks and make use of description to bring it to life,” she said. “Students had to be a reporter who had stepped into the situation, so they could become Chu or another worker, whatever they chose.” Kaempf contacted Yee, who lives in Toronto, to ask per-

And he also agreed to take a look at some of the pieces written by the students. “The curriculum is to learn about the development and significance of the CPR,” she said. “This was my first time teaching the topic, and when I started doing my own research, I came across the atrocities and I just didn’t feel I could gloss over it. “The other part of the story was about immigration.” For her part, Julia said she was surprised to learn of the poor treatment of the Chinese people by Canadians. “I always thought we were nice to everyone, but one thing I learned that shocked me was that if the workers died, they were just thrown in the river, instead of getting a proper burial.”
Born in the Yukon, Julia moved here two years ago and, although she misses her friends back home, she has quickly settled into her new home, making new friends and being made to feel welcome. BX school was recently the site of a ceremony for new Canadian citizens, so it was a chance for students to discuss immigration and why someone might choose to come here. “It’s nice here, Canada is a beautiful country and everyone is treated with respect.” While most of Julia’s writing involves keeping a journal, she hopes her future includes a career as a writer. “I would like to write scary stories with ghosts because that’s what I really enjoy,” she said.
Silent Railway Deaths takes a look inside the building of the CPR JULIA PALFREYMAN Special to The Morning Star
They died. Lots of them. They died in the tunnels. In the winter. They are gone now. Forever. I saw some of their dead bodies lying there. I felt helpless. I wish I could have helped them. It all started like this. I had an offer to go record what happened as the CPR was being built. It was when I arrived at the railway, where I met Chu. He was a lonely man. He had come from China, where heavy floodwaters had come and ruined their crops and drowned their animals. His father had come to Canada to work for money because their family was now poor. Chu’s father was gone for a long time and his family grew worried so they sent Chu to look for him. Soon we arrived at a camp. We pitched our tents and started to work. I felt beads of sweat rolling quickly down my face and back, creating wet spots on my shirt. I turned to glance at Chu, tears are sliding down his face and landing with a quiet “drip” on the ground. I look up and I see the raw rock of the mountains covering the sky and sun. We kept doing the same work routine for months. We get up, we pound spikes and then go to bed. Day in and day out,
This is Kseniya...
same thing every day. It was tiring. We traveled from one camp to another, working our way up the railway. Each time we saw a new work gang, Chu would run up and shout out his father’s name with hope of seeing him. I felt badly for him. He must have felt so sad and lonely. I can’t do anything to make him feel better. Winter came, halting all work. I was a little grateful. My whole body ached and my muscles burned with exhaustion. I was sad because mail couldn’t reach us due to the snow, and it was cold, it was very cold. Spring finally arrived and we dug graves for the two men that had succumbed to sickness. I watched as their dead bodies were placed in the graves and I was horrified. Late one evening, we arrived at a half finished tunnel. Before we had the chance to set up camp, men came running out of the tunnel yelling, “It’s haunted, there are ghosts inside!” After hearing that, everyone refused to go inside, Chu spoke up and said, “I will spend the night in the tunnel and prove that it is not haunted.” He packed his things and bravely trudged into the dark tunnel. It was late. I was worried about Chu. Suddenly Chu
rushed into the tent. He looked spooked. He had woken up with the feeling of something pressing on his chest. It was his father’s spirit who was talking to him. His father said, “Many Chinese and white men have died. The white men where placed in graves but the Chinese men were thrown in the river. They need a final resting place. Chu, use chopsticks for bones and straw matting for our flesh.” His father then disappeared into the night. I helped Chu make the bundles and then I watched him climb the mountain, bundles in one hand and the other hand gripping the rope. He dug graves and buried the bundles and then climbed down with tears in his eyes. I gave Chu a hug and we turned toward the mountain in time to see the rope transform into a snake which would guard the graves. After a year of hard work, Chu and I decided to go home. I gave Chu money so he could go back to China and I returned to my little house in Ontario. Life was never the same. Years later, I got a package in the mail from Chu. Inside was a picture of Chu with his family and a letter thanking me for being his friend. Little did he know that I was truly the lucky one for having met Chu and experiencing his strength.

Teen brings home the crown KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff
Kathy Emery wants all girls to know that dreams do come true. As Miss Teen North Okanagan-World 2011, Emery is fulfilling her dream of modeling and competing in pageants. “As well as this dream of mine, I thought was a great opportunity for a small town girl to represent her hometown,” said Emery, a Grade 12 student at Pleasant Valley secondary school in Armstrong. “I also saw an opportunity to be a role model for other girls all across the province.” Earlier this year, Emery earned her title when she participated in Miss Teen B.C.World 2011 in Richmond. There, she qualified for the National Miss Teen Canada-World pageant to be held July 16 in Toronto. “I am looking forward to being able to be a role model for younger girls, I hope to travel with my title, and I also hope to gain better people skills and more confidence,” she said. “Also from this experience I’m really hoping it can further me into runway modeling or even more pageants.” Emery said she appreciates the support she has had from family along the way, as well as from local businesses that have sponsored her participation. “First and foremost I would like to thank my mother for all her support and everything she has done to help me in this large adventure I have chosen to take,” she said.
“Also a large thank-you to Heather and her staff at Jaci Lynn’s for all the assistance with my dresses. Then another thank you to the staff at Big Sun for all the help with choosing and buying my bathing suit.” While Emery is looking forward to her trip to Toronto, she still enjoys all of the things most high school students enjoy: basketball, dance, working on the year book and participation in Me to We. She has also completed the cosmetology course at PVSS and is hoping to use her hair dressing course to help further her future plans. She also enjoys travelling and staying in touch with her friends. “After graduation, I plan on staying in the area and promoting my title as much as possible, and maybe just continue working where I currently work at the Deep Creek General Store,” she said. When her reign ends in March 2012, she hopes to do some travelling before moving to Vancouver or Calgary to pursue her hairdressing career. “So far, the highlight of this experience was being able to make an appearance at Cherryville Days and being able to talk with the young candidates who were running for Little Miss and Miss Cherryville. “It was amazing to see these beautiful young ladies all had a dream. A dream to be like me, their dream was to be a role model, to volunteer, and to be a great ambassador for the community.”

Ex-girlfriend still in the picture ear Annie: I have known “Tony” for 17 years, and we’ve dated for the past seven. He has one ex-girlfriend who has remained in his life. When “Mara” became pregnant (by another man), she asked Tony to be godfather. At first he told her no, because he thought it would make me uncomfortable, but after she pleaded with him that there was no one else, he agreed to do it. He told me he was only doing a favor for her and it didn’t mean he would be involved in the child’s life. I accepted the situation as best I could. Since then, we have all been together a couple of times, and Mara is so self-absorbed, it makes me uncomfortable. She never includes me in the conversation. A year ago, Mara called about getting together so Tony could see his godchild. I was going to be out of town that weekend, so Tony turned her down. But that same weekend, she somehow arranged some kind of drama and called Tony to come over and help

Life Old clothes given new life for Haiti Morning Star Staff
Jeff Lloyd, Will Johnston and Corey Boult are biking from Vancouver to Winnipeg in Wheel to Heal 2011 in memory of Boult’s father and to raise money for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada. They stopped in Vernon recently to camp at the home of Mike and Donna McGrath.
Cycling towards understanding Morning Star Staff
Three young Winnipeg men are on a 2,300 km bike ride from Vancouver to their home town to raise money for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada. Corey Boult, his friends, Will Johnston and Jeff Lloyd, had little biking experience when they undertook the ride in memory of Boult’s father, who recently died after having long-term depression. They want to raise money for the Mood Disorders Society of Canada and help prevent other families
from experiencing the pain of depression. They see this ride, Wheel to Heal 2011, Let’s Ride Above Depression, as an opportunity to challenge themselves and assist those who deal with the challenges of depression every day. They also want to remind people of the proved importance of exercise, friendship and support as key elements in promoting well-being. For more information see www.mooddisorderscanada.ca. Follow the trip on Facebook.com/ MoodDisordersSociety Canada “Wheel to Heal”.
May 25 was a busy day at the Curves Fitness Club in Coldstream. The club hosted a pre-loved clothing sale, where members donated clothing to be sold to other members. “One of the unique things that happens at a fitness centre like ours is that members are always changing size and upgrading their wardrobes — kind of out with the old and in with the new,” said owner Margaret Penner. The donated clothing could be purchased for a nominal fee and all funds generated were donated to Judy Douglas, a longtime Vernon nurse who also does volunteer work at a children’s orphanage in Haiti. “The money raised will go a long way in providing food and medicine for the kids in
The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge is situated on 80 acres of serene land next to Phillips Lake. Living at the refuge are 20 donkeys that were all seeking a safe and secure home when they arrived. Some of the donkeys have experienced abuse and neglect and some of the donkeys just needed a permanent home because their owners were unable to care for them any longer. Donkeys have a long life span and can live to be more than 40 years of age which increases their chances of being bounced from home to home or being abused and neglected. Donkeys are a very misunderstood animal throughout the world and because they can suffer from the lack of human respect they are easily forgotten and abused. Rob Miller and Shirley Mainpize had been looking after donkeys for more than 12 years when they decided to open the refuge to the public in 2009. They are the founding directors of the Refuge Society which is currently awaiting registration of their charity status. Miller and Mainpize have been overwhelmed by the increasing need for the donkey refuge and as a result they are in the middle of their third expansion for the donkeys arriving in June and in the future. The Turtle Valley Donkey Refuge is the only sanctuary in Western Canada that provides a permanent home for the donkeys, with the country’s only other sanctuary in Guelph, Ont. To help raise the necessary funds for the cost of care, feed, farrier and veterinary expenses, the refuge is hosting a Donkey Day Celebration Saturday at the farm. The fundraising event gives the public a chance to meet and learn about the donkeys, enjoy

Postal lockout stops HST ballots
TOM FLETCHER Black Press
Holly DeLeenheer (from left), Ila Armitage, Lani McCulloch, Caliah Prentice, Tina Gatacre and Phoebe Gerbrandt recently raised more than $2,000 for WaterCan Canada, an organization that puts clean water wells for clean water into villages in Africa, and are hosting a cut-a-thon and barbecue fundraiser Wednesday, June 22, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. at O’Haira’s The Salon and Spa. Proceeds from this event will go towards the Canadian Cancer Society.
Thousands of ballots for B.C.’s harmonized sales tax referendum were being stored in post offices after Canada Post locked out its urban employees across the country Wednesday. Elections B.C. has prepared a contingency plan for post office disruptions, as officials try to get more than three million ballots delivered to homes across the province by June 24. Federal Labour Minister Lisa Raitt told CTV Wednesday that since Canada Post moved from rotating strikes to a complete shutdown, the government will consider introducing back-to-work legislation. Craig James, B.C.’s acting chief electoral officer at Elections B.C., said Wednesday that no changes to the referendum timetable were being contemplated “at this time.” If the post office dispute drags into next week, Elections B.C. has the option to push back the deadline for returning completed ballots beyond the current date of July 22. Elections B.C. officials said they
will adjust their schedule if necessary to give voters the same amount of time to consider how they will vote. Ballot packages went in the mail on Monday to regions outside Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. They were scheduled to go out to those areas starting June 20. Voters who receive their ballots can return them to one of 60 Service B.C. (formerly government agent) offices around the province instead of putting them in the mail. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon urged people to vote “no” to the referendum question, which asks whether voters want to “extinguish” the HST and go back to the 12-per-cent federal and provincial sales tax. Former premier and Fight HST organizer Bill Vander Zalm is running an advertising campaign urging people to vote yes, reminding people of the additional seven per cent tax extended to restaurant meals and a long list of services. Faced with a strong public backlash against the HST, the B.C. and federal governments have committed to lower the rate to 11 per cent in 2012, and to 10 per cent in 2014.

Farmers drafting water reserve principles demographics. Efficiencies achieved should remain in the reserve and groundwater should be included. The province should continue to be the agency for allocations and licensing, although planning should be
local. Council members questioned whether ecosystem needs were adequately considered in the draft principles and who pays for water to satisfy the needs of fish. Water stewardship
director for the OBWB, Nelson Jatel, emphasized that environmental needs and drinking water and sanitation would have to be considered top priorities. But he noted the sub-committeeâ€™s technical exercise regarding
water for agriculture will likely move on to a model of the impact these principles would have on this basin, or on a particular utilityâ€™s area within the basin, using the water supply and demand study completed last year.
Following that modelling, a position paper for the water board will be written, approved by the stewardship council and forwarded to the board, which is made up of board members from each of the regional districts in the basin.

A recent workshop showcased the latest free online technology to help make irrigation planning easier for farmers. Staff from the Ministry of Agriculture presented information on the Okanagan Irrigation Management program, a tool available to agri-
District of North Okanagan. â€œThis information is used by the website to estimate the amount of water needed annually to maximize crop productivity.â€? OKIM uses real-time climate data from the www. farmwest.com website, a useful resource for farmers with a range of information from
weather forecasts to manure management. Another useful tool available via the OKIM website is the agricultural irrigation scheduling calculator, which calculates irrigation needs based on crop type, soils, and the five-day weather forecast for the region. â€œThe tool uses this information to create an irrigation
schedule based on the farmâ€™s particular irrigation system,â€? said Miles. â€œA similar site is also available to homeowners, the landscape irrigation scheduling calculator, which calculates watering times for residential gardeners,â€? said Miles. â€˜Both calculators are free for anyone to use and will help

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Don’t be surprised to hear from several people who think of you as a good friend. You have more pals out there than you realize, who want to share some quality time with you. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Whether you know it or not, you’ve done your fair share of what others call good deeds. More than one person will remember this, and will put you on the receiving end for a change. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Don’t go anywhere without leaving word as to where you’ll be and how you can be reached. A couple of pals will have some exceptionally good information to share with you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) For those of you who have been putting forth a lot of effort on behalf of others, rewards will begin to roll in. It could turn out to be quite an impressive cavalcade. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Don’t discard any ideas you get, even if some of them are grandiose and totally different from what others concoct. This kind of thinking is what produces big things. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Instead of following guidelines put out by the establishment, follow your own perceptions on certain commercial matters of interest. You may spot what the bigwigs fail to see. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) This could be quite a day for you, with several pleasant surprises in the
making. You and your companions will each in their own way be lucky for one another. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It behooves you to focus on only the most important things when it comes to choosing which assignments confronting you are the most important at this time. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Regardless of how many assignments you have to do or which ones you think will generate the most good for the majority, you’ll handle all of your work quite well, because you’ll do your best. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Before the day is over, something extremely nice is likely to happen, which will please you very much. Chances are it will have to do with adding to your financial well-being. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) The busier you are, the more effectively you’ll perform. When you start to accelerate, the more focused you’ll become, making both your mind and body operate at high efficiency.

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.

3TOP A HEART ATTACK BEFORE IT STARTS
Bridge by Phillip Alder Alice Kahn, an author, said, â€œFor a list of all the ways technology has failed to improve the quality of life, please press three.â€? Things are reputed to go in threes in some quarters (or should that be thirds?). Well, in this deal, you are in three no-trump, and West leads his diamond three. What would be your plan? North used Stayman to try to ďŹ nd a 4-4 heart ďŹ t. (After responder uses Stayman, opener should rebid in hearts when 4-4 in the majors.) First, you have seven top tricks: three spades, three hearts and one club. Second, you must call for dummyâ€™s diamond king. Only an East who
learned the game three minutes ago would put up the ace if you played dummyâ€™s six. Third, when the king holds, you are up to eight tricks. But you should resist the temptation to take an immediate club ďŹ nesse. If you ďŹ nesse here, you will go down, losing one club and four diamonds. (Remember, diamonds 5-3 is more likely than diamonds 4-4.) There are two other chances to gain a ninth winner: spades 3-3 or the heart jack singleton, doubleton or tripleton. Start with hearts, the suit visible on the board. When the jack does not drop, cash three rounds of spades, ending with
dummyâ€™s king. When they break 3-3, lead the club jack, planning to win with your ace and to cash the 13th spade. (Note, though, that it does not hurt to tempt East to cover if he has the club king.) If, though, the spades are not 3-3, try the club ďŹ nesse.
