Traffic light stops suspect

SPLASH MOUNTAIN

ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

JENNIFER SMITH/MORNING STAR

Jonathan Chirkoff, 11, gets blasted with water by a fellow tuber while riding down the River Riot at Atlantis Water Slides Monday during a Coldstream Elementary field-trip to kick off summer.

After a dozen reports of one person driving erratically on Highway 97, Vernon RCMP were able to arrest a suspect because the man stopped for a red light in town. Kelowna RCMP received a number of complaints of a burgundy truck being driven erratically northbound on the highway. A total of 12 files were created on this truck. Vernon officers were contacted, as the truck was headed towards the city, and the suspect was arrested at the bottom of hospital hill. “He stopped at a red light at 32nd Street and 25th Avenue, so our police vehicles boxed him in so he couldn’t take off,” said Vernon RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. The man, 47, from West Kelowna, was arrested for dangerous operation of a motor vehicle. Police issued the driver a 24-hour suspension for impairment by drugs. Police are asking for the public’s help in this case. Anybody who may have seen the truck in question while it was being driven to call the RCMP. As well, if pictures or cell phone video were taken of the truck by anyone, they are asked to contact police.

Funtastic fanatics still in the game ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Shelley Bedard is a Pig. And very proud of it. Bedard, a Vernon resident, is a card-carrying member of the P.G. Pigs softball team, a Prince George squad that, in one form or another, has played in every Funtastic slopitch tournament since the event’s inception. “We actually were coming to Vernon to play in another ball tournament the same weekend, before Funtastic, and then Funtastic started and we’ve been playing every year,” said Bedard, a native of Williams Lake who moved to Prince George after high school. It was in Prince George that Bedard, a financial consultant, met her longtime partner, Darrel Rahier, and they played softball with, among others, Dan Currie who, like Bedard and Rahier, now lives in Vernon. It was at Funtastic 20 years ago that Currie met his wife, Jamie, also a Pig. “We picked her up (for the tournament) and brought her down,” chuckled Bedard at

the memory of how the Curries met. “(Team rep) Glen Lemon was instrumental in that. He’s the one who brought her for the tournament.” It was also Lemon who was responsible for the name change (the team has been together for so long that Bedard can’t remember what they were called when they first started playing) to Pigs. “Glen acquired an actual pig so we called ourselves the P.G. Pigs,” laughed Bedard. As time goes on, and teammates age, priorities change. Even though the invite goes out every year to original players from Prince George, the Pigs often fill out their roster with, ahem, “Pig-ups” from Vernon. “I think we have three or four players from Prince George playing this year,” said Bedard, herself having double-booked for the July long weekend. She goes back to Williams Lake for a high school reunion, and returns in time to take in the last day of Funtastic Sunday. Team founders Glen and Tracy Skelly are unavailable to play this year, as they are sail-

ing on a Mediterranean cruise. “Funtastic is such a great time, we always book our holidays around it and try to have a Prince George reunion,” said Bedard. “The fun is why we keep playing year after year.” The Pigs will be among the 216 teams competing in Vernon, where the tournament got underway Thursday night. A combination of 84 other teams are taking part in Funtastic games in Armstrong and Enderby. Canadian rock legends Glass Tiger hit the main stage at the Vernon Army Camp Thursday night to help kick off the always popular music festival portion of Funtastic. Great White will be the main act on stage tonight and Bon Jovi tribute group Blaze of Glory wraps things up Saturday night. A number of local bands will also be performing during the festival. The Funtastic Sports and Music Festival brings in millions of dollars to the North Okanagan region, and the Funtastic Sports Society gives back proceeds from the event to community groups and organizations.

Citizens want changes at Vernon Jubilee Hospital and that has the local MLA’s endorsement. Resident Peter Hill is organizing a rally in front of VJH’s new tower today at noon to call on the government to fund more acute care beds. “Good on Mr. Hill,” said Eric Foster, Vernon-Monashee MLA. “We have to find a way to get those beds open.” Foster has been lobbying the ministries of health and finance to convert the two shelled-in floors in the tower Eric Foster to beds, but he says the public could also have significant influence in moving the project ahead. “It’s democracy in action,” said Foster of today’s rally. “Mr. Hill cares about what goes on in the community.” Foster isn’t sure if he will appear at the rally. “I will make an effort to get there but there are also Canada Day events in Vernon and Lumby and they overlap,” he said. Conditions at the hospital were also the focus of a B.C. Nurses Union protest Tuesday. At that time, BCNU president Debra McPherson said, “Where is the MLA for this area? Why isn’t he in the Legislature pounding the floor for families?” Foster is upset with the perception that he is ignoring the issue. “While she was in front of the hospital, I was in Victoria meeting with the Ministry of Health,” he said. “If I pound much harder, my hands will be sore. I have been doing nothing but pounding for beds.”

Transportation plans under fire RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The City of Vernon is being accused of putting up roadblocks for business. Monday’s public hearing on the proposed city centre neighbourhood plan was dominated by transportation issues. “The impression of most businesses is you want to starve us right out of business,” said Gerry Sellars, owner of Vernon Town Cinema. Sellars is concerned that the neighbourhood plan and realignment of roads will lead to less on-street parking. “It’s wonderful to have an area where you can bicycle and walk but businesses will wither away as customers are driven away,” he said. “For business, it’s death if you can’t park your car. What ever you are trying to maintain downtown will be lost.”

Complaints also surfaced over a plan to reduce 43rd Avenue, from 32nd to 27th streets, from four to three traffic lanes. “Businesses on 43rd Avenue depend on traffic,” said Cliff Smith, with Clifford Automotive. If the plan proceeds, the three lanes would include one each way for traffic and a centre two-way, left-turn lane. The space gained by eliminating the fourth lane would be for cyclists. “There’s a lot of industrial traffic and it’s not an area with a lot of bicycle traffic,” said Smith. Gary Krieger, with Vernon Tireland, believes motorists will bypass the area if the number of lanes are reduced. “If there is a choice between a threelane road and a four-lane road, people will choose four lanes,” he said. Other issues were discussed during

the public hearing including the need for greenspace along Swan Lake (BX) and Vernon creeks. “Council would be missing a glorious opportunity if it didn’t increase access to the creeks downtown,” said resident Jim Bodkin. Barb McKechnie-Boschert expressed concerns that the city’s recent zoning change to residential prevents her from selling her business property in the 3900 block of 31st Street. “I am surrounded completely by commercial properties,” she said, adding that families will not want to live in that environment and strict limits on business activities have turned potential purchasers away. Council is expected to discuss the city centre neighbourhood plan at its July 11 meeting.

Advisory remains for Duteau source Morning Star Staff

Some Greater Vernon residents should still be cautious about their drinking water over the long weekend. A water quality advisory remains in place for the Duteau Creek source although the Regional District of North Okanagan had expected to lift the alert Thursday. “The water distribution system sampling results have remained good but there has been some difficulty in maintaining a 24-hour average turbidity below 1.5 nephelometric turbidity unit,” said Renee Clark, water quality manager. “This level of turbidity is not visible but is a level

grew up in rural Georgia (where they serve gravy and biscuits, not the country that Russia invaded) and as of today I am a Canadian citizen. Like everyone else with an accent in this great country, I ended up here the usual way. I met a girl while travelling…blah,blah,blah, and the next thing you know you’re ice fishing and drinking beer with waaaaay more alcohol in it. Since moving to Canada, I am repeatedly asked how I think ‘we’ compare to the U.S. My first answer is, why Nathan Weathington compare? It is true that we are similar in a lot of ways. However, the U.S. population is 10 times greater than Canada’s, and they are squeezed into a country only slightly larger than Canada (just making sure you’re paying attention). This makes it tough to truly compare apples to apples. If we define ourselves as simply not being the U.S. we never truly define what it means to be Canadian. Canada rocks in unique ways that need no comparison. First, and most importantly in my mind, is space. If you must take an extra tank of gas and bag of beef jerky when you head down a dirt road, it’s a good day. Second, although it could always be better, our health care is pretty awesome from my experience. To immigrate, you must have a blood test. The nurse actually winced when she informed me she would need to charge me. “How

much?” I asked nervously. “Nine dollars and fifty cents,” she whispered. I laughed, gave her a twenty and told her to keep the change. Next, hockey, hockey and more hockey. It is football on ice with no game stoppage, smaller playing surface, weapons, a gladiator code of ethics and fans that would rival the craziest in the world (not including the idiots who rioted). It is true most Americans can’t appreciate hockey, but Canadians can’t grow pineapple either, so who cares. Lastly, like my southern cohorts, Canadians are funny as mess. (FYI: Yankee is a cuss word where I grew up.) Once my friends here in B.C. found out I was going for my citizenship test they made me nervous and prepared me for the worst. As I entered the unmarked room, I was ready for almost anything. If I had to clap out all the drum solos from the entire Rush catalogue, I was ready. If I had to differentiate between the three grades of maple syrup by taste, viscosity or tint, I was ready. My only fear was the skating time trial, but I was confident I would wow them with the leg-hold trap assignment. In the end, it was only a test that covered Canada’s history, political system and the rights and responsibilities of being a citizen. For the record, I doubled my Canadian wife’s score. We live in a land where we are fortunate enough to worry if our eggs are free range, shade grown and organic. I have the luxury to be irritated when my frappuccino latte is delayed five minutes as city workers bust their butts to deliver potable water to my house. These are high-class problems in a highclass country.

As the campaign for voters’ hearts and minds in the HST referendum reaches its final stage, most of us have heavy hearts. It can’t be doubted that some of the confusion comes from a chorus of raised voices who accost us daily. Do we trust Fight HST organizer Bill Vander Zalm? Do we believe his claim that going back to the GST/PST will balance the budget sooner, as well as save taxpayers $2 billion? Do we believe the NDP’s claim that going back to the GST/PST will balance the budget sooner, as well as save taxpayers $2 billion? Finance Minister Kevin Falcon has attacked NDP leader Adrian Dix for faulty math, saying the 10 per cent HST rate promised by the Liberals by 2014 is clearly less than the 12 per cent GST/ PST rate championed by Dix. Falcon also wonders where the money will come from to fix the $3 billion hole extinguishing the HST would create? In the current believability stakes, the Liberals come off as popular as a teen who — not content with taking the family car without permission and wrapping it around a tree — now presents us with the repair bill and a sanctimonious lecture on vehicle maintenance. Should we believe advertiserconscious media pundits — who say that what’s good for business is good for the rest of us? While businesses may get a break with the HST, how many have passed savings on to the public? They can’t survive on tax breaks alone. The key to business success must be consumers with enough disposable income to buy their goods. The average taxpayer might be forgiven for wondering if someone will give us a straightforward and honest answer. — Peace Arch News

Taxpayers shouldn't cough up

as anyone paid attention to one of our new premier's proposals? Ultimately, we the people will be subsidizing a program to help people stop smoking. Free gum and patches to stop smoking? Excuse me, isn't that just another crutch to prevent the original crutch? That's all a cigarette is — a crutch. Why should the province pay for someone's individual, destructive habit? It has also developed into an expensive one with the present price of tobacco. To all of the smokers who sincerely want to quit this deadly addiction, don't forget, inside that bony dome called a skull is a mass of grey matter that dictates every aspect of your activities. It is your responsibility to use it in the most positive manner. You and you alone must decide HOSPITAL SITUATION Open letter to the premier of B.C. and her health minister: You have heard from the administrators, the doctors, the nurses and the staff of Vernon Jubilee Hospital regarding the chronic, deplorable situation of the hospital bed shortage. I would like to tell you how this shortage of beds effects the people who have to use this hospital. My elderly wife, Dawn, was taken to the emergency ward March 10 seriously ill. On March 11, it was determined that she had a very short time left to live. At this stage, she would have been put in a ward, if not a private room. But there were no beds available. She was kept in emergency March 12 and 13 with all of the crowded hustle and bustle and noise which are part of the emergency environment. All the staff in the emergency department were extremely kind and efficient but understandably had to give priority to others. On March 14, a bed became available and she was moved to a four-person ward. Her condition had deteriorated and it was most uncomfortable for the other three patients who could see that she was dying. Her two sisters who died at VJH were given a private room as they neared the end so they could talk to

their family and friends in comfort and in private. Dawn was moved to Hospice House and died there. I have the highest admiration for all the staff, doctors and nurses at VJH and Hospice House. Can you explain to me why this treatment was not worth budgeting enough money for proper hospital care? Dawn would have wanted me to write this letter. Dale Elmer SAYING NO They say an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But as an orchard owner in Summerland, and the president of the B.C. Fruit Growers’ Association, I can tell you that the HST keeps the tax collector from bothering me. How can anyone vote against keeping the 10 per cent HST and bring the 12 per cent PST-GST back? It’s not just the fact that the PST we paid on any supplies we needed for our business was a hard cost. It’s not just that those costs had to be passed on to our customer or that each and every month there were two tax filings. It’s the fact that returning back to the old 12 per cent PST-GST system is bad for business, customers and families. The 12 per cent PST-GST will

cost all of us more. Why would anyone want a system that takes money away from our wallets and hurts our economy? I don’t, and that’s why I’m saying no to going back to the PST-GST. Joe Sardinha President, BC Fruit Grower’s Association HST WRONG I hold membership in the B.C. Liberal Party, however, I am completely fed up with the actions of our provincial government concerning the HST issue. When the HST was introduced, as Eric Foster stated, "we did a terrible job of introducing this." The government also misrepresented that the tax would be revenue neutral: but now we have learned it has brought into the provincial coffers an extra $50 million. Eric was just a rookie MLA and I don't think it is fair to lay all of the blame on him. With the additional revenue that as been generated, why can't the proposed tax reduction be implemented now rather than in the years 2012 and 2014? The argument that B.C. can't afford to go back to the former PST/ GST system doesn't hold water. Financially we got along just fine that system before. There is merit to a consumer

Consider your health, the taste that tobacco leaves in your mouth, what you breath on others, plus the second-hand smoke. From the standpoint of vanity alone, look at your image in the mirror. Eventually a smoker develops so many wrinkles even the wrinkles have wrinkles. By cutting off the menace at the source, why isn't is mandatory for tobacco farmers to convert to growing beneficial food crops? After all, bona fide farmers are constantly advised to switch from one crop to another. For the health of this province, Christy Clark has to examine top priorities more cautiously. Free gum and patches are a cosmetic facade. Alli M. Graham

taxation system administered by a single agency. Having said that, it is not fair that consumers of goods and services are expected to bear the burden of more and more taxation. I refer especially to middle income earners. The upcoming referendum will not solve this. Another tax grab is the carbon tax which is scheduled for an increase this summer. It discriminates against those of us who reside in small or rural communities where public transportation is either not available or is very limited. Most people residing in these communities have no choice but to resort to the automobile. B.L. Willows SAY YES I sense that a yes vote to extinguish the harmonized sales tax may produce much more positive, progressive results and that a no vote to keep this tax may produce much more harmful, negative results to our own evolving economic existence. A yes vote may make the rich minority richer by making the poor majority poorer and B.C. may do better if we make a real effort to balance our own federal and provincial taxes. I sense that a yes vote may go a long way towards returning our forceful federal/provincial governments to the bottom-to-top demo-

Cash lacking for professional days KATHERINE MORTIMER

Students look at professional development days as a day off from school. For teachers, professional development is a chance to expand their knowledge, bringing it back to the classroom. But a lack of funding means teachers in the Vernon School District aren’t always able to attend an out-of-town conference. Robyn Ladner, the professional development chair for the Vernon Teachers’ Association, says most teachers receive on average, about $160 per year. “The professional development funding formula has not changed in this district for over 20 year,” she said. “This ($160) usually does not cover the cost

“We have about 500 teachers in the district.” — Bill Turanski of attending a conference, let alone the travel. Ladner said as a result, teachers are forced to save their professional development funds and may be in a position to attend a conference only once every two or three years. “It is in the board’s best interest to ensure that there is adequate funding for teachers to continue their professional growth,” she said. “These opportunities ensure that a quality education is being provided to students and provides opportunities for teachers to be exposed to new ideas,

vide the students with educational programs,” said Turanski. “We have about 500 teachers in the district. To provide them with $1,000 each for professional development would mean that we would have to take an additional half million dollars from educational funding. “The amount of money provided on a per-teacher basis is one of the local negotiated items currently being bargained. In addition to the professional development funding, each teacher may take two days’ paid time to attend professional development activities with the district covering the cost of the teacher on call to cover their respective classes,” said Turanski.

eases and equipment. “Teachers should receive no less, given the critical importance of education to children and to society,” she said. VTA president Bruce Cummings said there’s not much teachers can do for $160 per year, and that $1,000 would be far more adequate. The problem, says school district chairperson Bill Turanski, is that in order to increase ProD funding, cuts would need to be made elsewhere. “Teacher professional development funding comes out of our operating budget, the money we get from the per student funding that is used to operate the school district and all the educational components required to pro-

Pleasant Valley Secondary School graduates took the next step in their lives Tuesday evening in Armstrong. Wearing their gowns and caps and foot wear that ranged from stylish heels to flip flops, to running shoes, to no shoes at all, they waited for their big night. “It’s excitingly frightening,” said Kim Hewitt, as she and her

friends made last-minute adjustments to their caps while waiting for the ceremony to begin. “I want to get a job and save to go to university in Germany to study performing arts. I think the best thing about high school for me was coming from a very isolated small town in the north and being accepted so well here for three years.” Eryn Kados also has definite plans.

“We’re really going to miss all the people we have had to guide us over the past years, all the awesome teachers who made high school so great for us. I want to be an early childhood education teacher or work at Kindale,” she said. Their friend Rianne Weijs will be looking for work and making sure she keeps in touch with the people she’s met in high school.

The grads looked to the future with plans including becoming electricians, rodeo racers, singers and travelling, or just seeing what happens next. Andrew Nydam will be taking a year off to work in a financial institution and then continue his training to be a singer. “I think that a year of experience will do me good. I’m looking forward to it all with a

lot of open mindedness of what lies ahead,” he said. “I was invited to audition at Juilliard in New York City but didn’t get in this year. I hope I will be invited again. It was an incredible experience for a little-town boy to be in the biggest city. School has been an incredible ride and I’m never going to forget all my friends from the past years.” Nydam, Alicia Venables and Lindsay Wedel led the audience singing O Canada and he and Wedel also performed later in the ceremony. “I’m ready to get out into the world. I do rodeo and barrel racing and I want to travel and

make a career of that,” said Frances Herring, as she made a last-minute call to her mother on her cell phone. Harry Crick, Reece Graham and Raymond Odd kicked off their shoes as a symbol of their new freedom. “It’s done! We’re out of here! We’ve been living for the weekends and we’re still going to do that,” said Crick, who is heading off to Thompson Rivers University to become an electrician. Graham will also be at TRU studying accounting, while Odd has no particular plans. Alex Dahl and Emery Bardock took shelter from the sprinkling of rain under an umbrella

held by Dahl’s sister, Lauren Dahl, a PVSS 2010 grad. “I can’t believe it’s here. We’re standing in our gowns getting ready for grad,” said Alex Dahl, who is going to Okanagan College in Vernon to start her studies to become a pharmacist. “It’s finally happened,” Bardock agreed. “I’m going to Simon Fraser University in business. I would like to become a CEO of a big company but that will take a lot of work.” There were 150 students in the graduating class with valedictorians Elias Andrushko and Claire Macdonald. More than 70 awards, scholarships and bursaries were presented.

Company keeps pace with running kids LIBERTY HOUSE WATCH We Take Care When You·re Not There!

Morning Star Staff

Moved by personal experiences involving cancer and inspired by a Lavington family, a Vernon company is lending a hand with a charity run. Vernon Budget Car and Truck Rental has donated a lime green Ford Fiesta to the Gosselin-Preston family run from Lavington to Vancouver which begins this morning at 8:45 a.m. at Lavington’s Centennial Park. The car will serve as a pace vehicle for the six kids – Michael Preston, Faren Gosselin, Desiree Gosselin, Haylee Gosselin, Hailey Preston and Ty Preston – and two parents – Reg Gosselin and Natalie Preston – who hope to arrive in Vancouver on July 14. “We’ve had, in our own personal lives, quite a few cancer survivors and people who died from cancer,” said Clint Croteau, Budget manager. “It’s very important to us that we’re able

The kids are aged six to 15.

The family will stop at towns along the way to Stanley Park in Vancouver to bolster their fundraising goal of $20,000. “We really appreciate the safety aspect of a car with an amber light on

Vipers add elite prospects Hankey tourney Morning Star Staff

The hockey pedigree is undeniable, but Adam Tambellini isn’t about to ride the coattails of his family name. The son of Edmonton Oilers’ general manager Steve Tambellini, and younger brother of Vancouver Canucks’ forward Jeff, Adam is intent on forging his own identity as he pursues his dream of becoming a pro. “It’s kind of good to have sometimes, but I don’t like to use it to my advantage. I’m just like any other player in the league,” shrugged the 1994-born centre. Tambellini has already shown he can handle himself in bigpressure situations. He recorded a hat trick to help the Edmonton SSAC Athletics ground the Saskatoon Contacts 3-2 in the gold-medal game of the Mac’s Midget AAA Tournament in January. He finished the tourney with 4+5 in seven games. “I don’t think you can ask for any better situation than that. In the Mac’s tournament, that was probably the best game of my life and I’m glad I got to do it on that stage,” said Tambellini. The Vernon Vipers are hoping the 6-foot-1 centre (he is already two

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Mississauga’s Luke Juha, recently acquired from the OJHL Burlington Cougars, will patrol the Vernon Viper blueline this season. inches taller than Jeff) will bring some of that scoring savvy when he joins the organization for the coming season. “He wants to make his own name for himself. He played for a pretty good team, but he was instrumental in their success,” said Vipers’ assistant coach Jason Williamson. Tambellini, a cousin of fellow Viper Aaron Hadley, compiled 29 goals and 25 assists for

54 points in 34 games with the Athletics, and was a constant threat on their powerplay. Listed by the WHL Portland Winterhawks and sought after by several other junior clubs (Steve is close friends with Harvey Smyl of the Chilliwack Chiefs), Tambellini opted to follow the scholarship route. “I saw what my brother did in going to Michigan (NCAA

Division 1 Wolverines) and it seemed to work out pretty good. He’s been playing in the NHL for six years now so I thought that was a pretty good road for me.” Incidentally, Jeff, playing with the Chiefs, and Williamson, as captain of the Vipers, battled one another in the 2001-02 Fred Page Cup finals. Chilliwack won the best-of-seven series and advanced to

the Royal Bank Cup. More recently, Tambellini watched Jeff play for another cup... as in the Stanley Cup. “It was pretty surreal to watch (Canucks vs Bruins). We got to go down for Games 5 and 7. Game 7 was quite the experience. I’ve never seen anything like that before,” said Tambellini, who has always received pragmatic hockey advice from his big brother. “All the time he was developing, he was telling me to just get out there and play the game and don’t worry about anything else.” Tambellini, whose family owns a home on Christina Lake, will work out this summer in Castlegar at The Factory, a hockey training centre owned in part by Jeff. It operates five days a week out of Selkirk College. Meanwhile, the Vipers announced another move earlier this week to strengthen their blueline. With the departure of three key veteran d-men – Adam Thompson, Stevie Weinstein and Malcolm Lyles – the Royal Bank Cup finalists acquired 18-year old Luke Juha from the Burlington Cougars of the Ontario Junior Hockey League in exchange for future considerations.

The 85th Hankey Cup doubles tennis tournament opens this morning with men’s B play at the Kalamalka Country Club. Tournament director Ray Kimoto said there are more than 70 players from throughout the Okanagan entered in the three-day event. Former Hong Kong pro Murray Bennetto is not playing. He teamed with Leif Nordlund to stop Craig Tilander and Mike Knights 2-0 (6-2, 6-0) in the all-Vernon men’s A doubles final of the raindelayed tournament last year. Bennetto was paired with Eastern Washington Eagle star Dean Kimoto two years ago. In the ladies A doubles round-robin tournament, it was Vernon’s Hailey Crampton and Lyse Tremblay topping the ladder last year at 5-1. In the mixed A doubles, it was Ogden and Bob Langford of Salmon Arm defeating Cindy Akenclose and Dan Albrehct 2-0 (6-2, 6-0) in the final. The men’s and ladies finals go at 1:15 p.m. Saturday.

Impact on the ascent Morning Star Staff

The red-hot Okanagan Impact moved into a share of third place with a 2-1 victory over the Vernon Liquor Store North Okanagan United Tuesday night at Marshall Field #2. Jodi Hawthorne and Shelinda Morin scored for the Impact, who went to 7-3-1, tied with the Vernon Controllers in the Masters Division of the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association. Kate Colbeck and Kris Ponto split the goalkeeping and were sharp for the Impact, while Sue Herring provided wonderful work in the midfield. It was a a very tight and tough match game for the full 90 minutes with 4-6-1 NOU, playing their finest soccer of the season, taking the lead when Mel Jacobs buried her own rebound in front. Hawthorne tied the game 1-1 with 14 minutes left and the Impact kept on pressing and went ahead 2-1 after a great corner by Morin parachuted into the six-yard box, took a couple of bounces off defenders and slid past the keeper. “I was impressed with the team’s rally in the second half considering we only had one sub,” said Impact coach Mike Sandstra, whose club has won their last six games. After struggling all season with a lack of players, the Goplen Drillers finally fielded a whole lineup with subs and battled the second-place Chick Kickers to a 4-4 draw at Marshall Field #1. The Kickers opened the scoring in the second minute when Jenny Garnett converted after a couple of one-touch passes from Crystal Bergman and Jen Sorochuck. Bergman then erupted for two straight goals. The Drillers’ finest forward, Lena Urquhart, then connected on a header off a corner by Felicia O’Gorman. Tina Garrison of the Drillers then intercepted a pass and placed a hard shot from outside the 18-yard box. Urquhart scored her second goal of the night on a penalty shot and the Drillers went up 4-3 on another penalty kick by Felicia O’Gorman. Sorochuck, with just minutes left, headed in a dish by Bergman for the equalizer. Heeson Domay, playing outside her domain at wing, showed great ball-settling skills along with her

relentless hustle for the 8-2-1 Kickers, while Tania Sladen and Corrie Bauml were tireless forces. Bonnie Mann and Wendy Martens responded well as utility gems for the Kickers, playing a multitude of positions with great confidence,, while Bridgette Grant floated under the radar covering vast amounts of the field, leaving the opposition in check while proving an offensive threat. Super 8 league recruit Barb Schulz was a solid defender for the 2-5-3 Drillers until going down with an ankle injury. Exceptional play and vocal leadership on the back line was provided by Velvet Beaumont. Speedy defender Karen Zupp, as instructed by the coach, stuck so close to her check she knew her Victoria’s Secret sizes by the end of the game. Renee Cooke and Becky McLennan each scored twice as Monashee’s Pub shut down Season’s Okanagan Sistas 4-0 at Marshall #5. Gennie-Mae Daines recorded the shutout for Monashee’s (3-6-2) The Sistas dipped to 0-9-1. The Vernon Controllers fell 5-0 to the undefeated Setter’s Pub in Salmon Arm. Everything went right for the home team on the rainy night. Three balls went in just under the crossbar and a fourth off the fingertips of keeper Corinne McWhinney to finish the first half. Setter’s (8-0-3) added one more in the second half on a 30-yard blast just inside the post. Playing in only her second game of the season McWhinney, usually a forward, was asked to play goal as the 7-1-3 Controllers could only field 11 players. Tireless Ang Durfeld shone in the midfield and forwards Jacquie Nuyens and Deana Baker were dangerous when they had the ball. In Competitive Division play, the Little Tex Outlaws grounded the North Enderby Timber 6-1 at Marshall #4. Christine Fraser scored a deuce for the Outlaws (5-3-1), while singles were supplied by Jenn Kemper, Monica Neilson, Lori Phillips and Kate Welch. Gineil Ferrier was outstanding in net for Little Tex, while Jordan Mercer had a strong game and Welch was a force on defence. Lori Phillip was stellar in the middle, setting up numerous plays and scoring opportunities. NET dropped to 1-8.

Ross shows Midas touch Morning Star Staff

Everything Graham Ross touched turned into goals Wednesday night as North Enderby Timber rallied to stop Monashee Surveying 5-3 in an entertaining North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League game at Marshall Field #2. Ross, who earned the Sleeman’s Man of the Match, helped set up four of the Timber goals, while unfortunately touching a ball which enabled Devon Marriott to beat keeper Danny Stein with a high, topcorner rocket on a penalty kick. Monashee’s, wisely playing the wind advantage, grabbed a 2-0 halftime lead on a pair of left-footed goals by Cam Clary. NET (8-1-1) responded 10 minutes into the second half when Ross picked off an errant clearance and chipped a through ball to Brent Poulsen. Just three minutes later, Poulsen drew three defenders and a foul with Ross sending a free kick to Harminder Sandhu, who used two touches to convert off the far post. Ross then found Bryn Knauf for a 3-0 header goal before Ross curled in another free kick which was headed to Poulsen, who nailed a corker under the crossbar. Stein, using the wind, booted the ball to the 3-4-1 Monashee 18-yard line, where Poulsen chipped the ball over the keeper to close out the offence. The Davidson & Co. Dynamite ambushed the Concept Physio 10-0 at Marshall #5.

Master striker Rob Ross was explosive with two goals, the first on a breakaway where he put the ball between the keeper’s legs. The second was a header into the top corner from a blazing cross from Albert Goldnik, the Nitros’ regular keeper who played out the second half, scoring once and setting up several others. Geoff Cox, Brad DeBoice, Sean Kelman, Jesse Knight, Tyler Loose, Landon Osborne and Nathan Whitling also scored for the 6-2-2 Nitros, who got several brilliant stops from Ean Ross in the second half, including two dazzlers on breakaways. Turn-Key Controls had a short bench but parlayed a stellar team system into a 3-0 Sunday upset of the host Revelstoke Stallions. With both their starting and backup keepers unable to make the trip, super athlete Alex Nolan won the job by default as he forgot his jersey at home. After a scoreless first half, Turn-Key pushed for the first goal, and a smart bank pass off the Revelstoke crossbar from Marco Arnold to Cam Egan opened up the scoring. Egan continued his strong play as he fed a wide open Evan Moore in the 18-yard box and Moore made it 2-0. Turn-Key (3-5-1) kept pressing and after some smart ball movement down the right side, they converted on a low, blistering shot from Chris Harris. The Turn-Key defence stepped up its game for the final few minutes to preserve Nolan’s shutout.

The Kal Tire Lightning brushed back the Global West Mortgages Red Sox 15-2 in the Vernon Mosquito baseball playoff final Monday night at Lakeview Park. Kalvin Blaeser went 4-for-4 with four runs for the Lightning, who went undefeated in the seven-team playoffs. Chase Batchelor stroked two hits and drove in four runs, while Stevie Schols tripled and had four RBI and Carter Morris supplied two hits and reached base four times. Eric Colwell singled and scored once for the Red Sox. Caden Colmorgen pitched two strikeout innings to jumpstart the Bolts, while Batchelor only allowed one run while fanning three batters in the third and fourth innings. Blaeser only threw 18 pitches in the fifth with 2 strikeouts. The Red Sox’ Kamrin Lubbers and Maguire Lauridsen pitched the first four innings, allowing just five runs with seven combined

strikeouts. Sheldon Wells had a strong defensive game at second base for the Lightning. It was a pitcher’s duel after four innings with the Bolts ahead 5-1. A two-out rally in the top of the fifth by Kal Tire was started by a Mattias Isobe walk and finished with a bases-clearing hit by Shaughnessy Barker. In the sixth, Matthew Hansen led off with a single, Kolton Maloney followed with another base hit and Hudson Bird walked. All three runners scored later in the inning when the Lightning scored six to take home the 2011 championship. The Bolts were coached by Mark Batchelor, while the Sox were guided by Ross Parsons. Global West Mortgages clipped the Five Star Awards Tigers 9-8 and edged the Gladiators by the same count to reach the final. Jaden Parsons and Ryan Gamage pitched for the Red Sox versus the Tigers.

Juha ready for Okanagan return Continued from A19 The Mississauga native posted 9-39-48 in 44 games and helped the Cougars win the OJHL regular-season title with 39 wins for 81 points. Juha (pronounced Yu-ha), a puck-moving defenceman and powerplay quarterback, was a member of the silvermedalist Team Canada East at the World Junior A Challenge in Penticton. Apparently he liked what he saw during his short trip to the Okanagan. “I’m totally looking forward to it. I’ve only heard good things about the coaches in Vernon and their record speaks for itself. I’ve heard it’s a great league and I just want to contribute with the Vipers,” said the well-spoken defender. Juha is one of the first players to commit to the new-

MONDAY JUNIOR B LACROSSE – Firstround best-of-three playoffs, South Okanagan Flames @ Vernon Tigers, 7:30 p.m., Wesbild Centre.

ENTER TO WIN!!



The weather warmed up just in time to let the sixth annual Scorched Sole Ultra live up to its name Sunday in Kelowna. Starting at Bertram Provincial Park, the course, covering a vertical gain of 9,337 feet, wound through Wild Horse Canyon and up to Divide Lake. Runners while battling temperatures in the mid-20s. Racers had the option of competing in one of three distances – 25 kilometres, 52 km and a 50 miler. This year’s course (it is one of the few ultras to change the route every year) was deemed by the organizers and runners to be one of the toughest yet. Of the 13 competitors in the 50 miler, Prince George’s Jeff Hunter rated first overall in 11 hours, 23 minutes and 45 seconds. Pocketing first in the men’s 50-59 and top local finisher was Brian Hill, who clocked a 15:52:37. Lori Alexander was first in the women’s 50-59 with a 16:05:00. Kelowna’s Justin Nicholas, finishing in 6:56:05, took first out of 58 runners in the 52-km distance. Warren Bell, placing third in the men’s 35-39, finished in 8:26:24. Kerry Bokenfohr won the women’s 45-49 age group with an 8:41:28, Susan Sinclaire ruled the women’s 40-44 with 10:00:50 and Barry

Hopkins claimed second in the men’s 50-59 with 10:16:50. Shanda Hill, who prepared for the event by going for a rigourous 10-km run sometime in the spring, topped the women’s 20-29 class with 9:47:12. Angelo Comazetto (fourth, men’s 30-34), Trish Marshall (fourth, women’s 45-49), Kathryn Giorio and Randy Delisimmunovic also braved the course. Vernon’s Aaron Heidt and Krys Pick started racing the 50-miler, but dropped to the 52-km event, which caused confusion with their times. Heidt rated second in the men’s 35-39 with an unofficial 6:03:11, and Pick recorded first in the women’s 30-34 with 9:54:10. In the 25-km distance, the fastest time went to Victoria’s Shane Ruljancich in 2:13:48. Bill Mah was the top local, finishing fifth overall in 3:10:56. Tammy Buick (fourth, women’s 25-29) and Nicole Heffner (third, women’s 35-39) crossed the line together in 4:21:13. Susan Falkenholt (fifth, women’s 45-49), Suzanne Evans (fifth, women’s 40-44) and Julie May (sixth, women’s 45-49) and Dave Langois (sixth, men’s 50-59) also competed. Some racers were on the course for nearly 20 hours, coming to the finish line at 3 a.m. Monday morning. For complete results, visit www. scorchedsole.com.

#OURSEOFTRUELOVELEADSTOTHEFARM Caravan’s former artistic director is back to head up Midsummer Night’s Dream KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

It’s the sound that most who have ever lived and/or worked at Caravan Farm Theatre anticipate with bated breath –– the clang of the triangle coming from the Cookshack. Like clockwork, everyone emerges from their workstations –– the woods, the fields, The Designery and other buildings around the property –– for food, glorious, food. Plates, bowls, cups, cutlery are gathered for the delectable spread, then everyone sits down at the giant picnic table in the middle of the room to break bread, discuss the morning’s activities, or ruminate about other pressing matters. It’s one of those daily routines that director Jennifer Brewin has missed, and is now relishing as she finishes eating to sit down to chat –– even though it is her turn to do the dishes. (This is a communal workplace after all, it’s all hands on deck.) Motioning to her friend, and current Caravan artistic director Courtenay Dobbie (who many will remember from last year’s summer production of Everyone) to join in on the conversation, Brewin is back to direct Caravan’s summer production of A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream. “It’s great to have Jennifer back,� said Dobbie, who took over the reigns as artistic director at Caravan from Estelle Shook in September. “Estelle, Jennifer and I were friends before we worked on a bunch of shows together.� It’s been a while since the two women joined forces at the farm –– Brewin directed Dobbie in 2004’s Cyrano of the Northwest, and both worked on The Man from the Capital, Brewin as director and

KRISTIN FRONEMAN /MORNING STAR

Caravan Farm Theatre’s current artistic director Courtenay Dobbie and former artistic director Jennifer Brewin, back to helm this summer’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, look out from the verandah of one of the farm’s new cabins. Dobbie as choreographer. Brewin left the farm in 2005, after serving as Caravan’s coartistic director, with Shook, from 1998. She went on to work at the National Arts Theatre in Ottawa, and has since directed numerous productions in the nation’s capital as well as in her hometown of Toronto. Two of those shows were originally done at Caravan, East o’ the Sun, West o’ the Moon, as well as The Man from the Capital. She returned to Caravan in 2009 to direct the winter sleigh ride production of The Story. “Caravan’s reach has gone all over the place,� said Brewin. “There’s something about the esthetic here –– it’s one of the many shifts in theatre.� “We’re good for creating shows that are new that move on,� added Dobbie. It was actually Shook who laid

out the plans to stage Midsummer, knowing she could use Caravan’s forest to full advantage. She had already lined up Brewin to direct the show before leaving as artistic director last year, making the way for Dobbie.

“People are sometimes scared of Shakespeare, but this comes from a place that encourages it.� — Jennifer Brewin “When Courtenay got the job, I said, ‘you can fire us if you want,’� said Brewin. “I obviously didn’t fire them. I was glad it was already planned

out,� laughed Dobbie, who has been involved with the casting of the show and has also arranged and composed the music. A Midsummer Night’s Dream isn’t the first time Caravan has done Shakespeare (Macbeth was produced in 2006 as well as King Lear, As You Like It and Romeo and Juliet previously), however, as in all its shows, Caravan puts its own spin on the classic while retaining the language and flavour. “People are sometimes scared of Shakespeare, but this comes from a place that encourages it,� said Brewin. “We didn’t want to set it in Elizabethan times. The language is onto itself and we want to show that off, but this is loosely contemporary. It has the energy and flavour of Caravan.� The farm’s forest is also a huge inspiration, with most of the set, designed by Catherine Hahn and Yvan Morissette, taking place in

the woods around the farm’s riding ring. “The play is set in the depth and breadth of the forest. It’s a universal connection of the Canadian forest, about walking through the woods at midnight,� said Brewin. With its history of horses being part of the production, Dobbie says some animals will be used in the show, and for those who know the storyline of the play, expect a foolish donkey. The cast of characters, including king of the fairies Oberon, queen Titania, mischief maker Puck, and the young lovers, are being played by both familiar and new faces, including two from Stratford, Ont., one from the Shaw Festival, and even a cirque clown. (Farm alumni Manon Beaudoin and Dawn Petten are some of those returning.) “We have a great cast who embody the essence of each character. They have the dignity and power and command the space,� said Brewin. “Plus, our female Puck is such a brat,� added Dobbie. The cast and crew also have new digs to call home while at the farm. Caravan partnered with the residential construction program at Okanagan College’s Salmon Arm campus, and the North OkanaganShuswap school district, to build four permanent cabins at the farm. The cabins were built onsite at the Salmon Arm campus in the spring, and were then loaded onto flatbeds for an early-morning back-road drive to the farm. Caravan is in the process of fundraising $17,000 to cover the cost of the building supplies. A Midsummer Night’s Dream opens at Caravan Farm Theatre July 19 and runs to Aug. 21 with shows nightly except Mondays (rain or shine) at 7:30 p.m. For tickets, call or visit the Ticket Seller in the Vernon Performing Arts Centre at 250-549-7469 (toll-free 1-866311-1011) or purchase online at www.ticketseller.ca. Those wishing to donate to the cabin project can visit the farm’s website at www. caravanfarmtheatre.com.

Wish singer luck as she competes to perform in Ottawa Morning Star Staff

It may sound ironic, but Vernon-based singer/songwriter Pauline Kyllonen has recently had some luck with her song Unlucky. Currently in the semifinals for a top 10 spot on the Ourstage Capital Hoedown Showdown, an online contest where songs are voted on by fans, Kyllonen is hoping for a top three position for her Unlucky entry. If she places, she will be chosen to audition in front of live judges for a chance to win a performance spot at Ottawa’s Capital Hoedown, Aug. 13. “Having your song chosen to be in the top 40 or top 10 of the Ourstage Country Hoedown competition is great publicity for any musical artist,” she said. “People from all around the world come to the site and are exposed to your music. If people like your music, they become fans. Fans buy your music and help to spread the word, and that’s what it’s all about, getting your music out there for the people to hear.” Already scheduled to perform at next weekend’s Merritt Mountain Music Festival, Kyllonen could soon find herself on the same stage as country superstars Kenny Chesney, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Doc Walker, Sara Evans, among other big names at the Capital Hoedown, the largest country music festival in North America. With plans to go in the studio later this summer to record her next CD, as well as release a new single to Canadian radio, Kyllonen says having this experience would be a feather in her cap, make that cowboy hat. Being chosen in the top 10 will give her the chance to be in direct contact with music industry people representatives, concert promoters, and others. “To actually win the contest, and be on the same bill as Kenny Chesney, Miranda Lambert would be the ultimate experience and opportunity,” she said. “It would totally

for any emerging art-

ist –– a chance to play your music for a crowd of 50,000 in the capital city of Canada. Who wouldn’t want to do that? I certainly do!” Those who wish to help Kyllonen get into the top 10 can visit www. ourstage.com and follow the links. (Facebook users can also sign up to the Hoedown Showdown through their accounts.) Participants will be shown two songs. They can listen or watch both songs for at least 15 seconds (sometime during the judging rounds, Kyllonen’s song should come up.) Participants can then choose which song they like the most

and by how much. Kyllonen warns that voting can take a little time to do, however, supporters can vote as much as they wish until the contest closes July 11 at midnight (EST). All registered voters in the contest will be entered to win a pair of tickets to the Capital Hoedown. Kyllonen is first looking forward to returning to Merritt’s Mountainfest, which was cancelled last year, and is performing as part of the songwriter’s circle in the activity tent, July 7 and 8 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. She will also be seeing a little of the countryside this month, with a

performance at Chances Casino in Kamloops July 8 at 7 p.m. and Kelowna’s Parks Alive in Kerry Park,

giving the animators a chance to go absolutely nuts with some of their most vivid work yet. It’s just too bad the story in front of the landscape isn’t as winsome. Again, Cars 2 is cute, branching off into an espionage sub-plot with Michael Caine and Emily Mortimer providing the voices of British spy cars, Finn McMissle and Holley Shiftwell, but the proceedings don’t cruise along with that usual Pixar magic. Par for the course, the message is a pretty decent one, that you should accept friends as they are, but here, the bells and whistles overpower the moral. Now, unless this studio proves otherwise, it’s pretty much impossible to dislike a Pixar movie, and Cars 2 is far from unlikable, in fact, kids will undoubtedly love it. But it is okay to be slightly disappointed, which, on this track, is new territory. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

STORK REPORT

KATHERINE MORTIMER/MORNING STAR

Sid Bell looks over copies of his book, Home on the Big Salmon. Just published by Xlibris in the United States, it can be purchased online.

A rewarding journey to publication KATHERINE MORTIMER Morning Star Staff

Sid Bell sits at his dining room table, surrounded by stacks of books in hardcover and paperback, bookmarks and a glossy poster, all evidence of the work he began in 1982. Home on the Big Salmon is Bell’s first book, and while it’s been a long journey since he began writing the story almost 30 years ago, he said nothing beats the thrill of seeing his book in published form. “(My wife) Darlene’s dad lived in the Yukon and every summer he took a job on a lake camp and we used to go and visit often and spent time on Big Salmon River and so it just appealed to me.” But the story is all fiction, said Bell, who began writing the book before the advent of the Internet, so he couldn’t rely on the Web for online research. “I was going to publish it after I wrote it, but things were very different then. I approached a publisher in Edmonton, but at 90 pages, she said it was too short. “So I went back to the drawing board and the original book is now part two, and part one is the newest section.” Home on the Big Salmon follows a young man’s life as he starts over after the end of the Second World War. It was October

This is Teresa...

1945. The war was over and the boys were coming home. Bob Walker was one of those boys. He had signed up a few days after the bombing of Pearl Harbour and from then on, he changed from the carefree individual that he once was. His youth was gone, lost somewhere along the way as he struggled to stay alive during the war. “When I was first turned down for publication, I put it on the shelf for awhile until I retired.” Sid worked as a diesel electric locomotive engineer for B.C. Rail for 30 years, spending long periods of time on the road, with little free time for writing. He retired in 2004, and last year, he and Darlene moved to Vernon from Williams Lake. It was time to pick up the pen again. “I write longhand — my computer skills aren’t that good,” he said, laughing. “Writing is something I’ve always wanted to do and in high school, essays were what got me through.” Darlene Bell acts as her husband’s publicist, secretary and computer technician. “He’s always had the gift of gab,” she said. “He wrote, and I typed it up on the computer.” When it was time to look for a publisher, Sid and Darlene went online, and decided on Xlibris, a publishing company

based in Bloomington, Indiana that gives authors control over their work. “They have been really good to deal with,” said Darlene. “It was a little daunting to begin with, but they walked us through it. The great thing is that they do most of the marketing.” Sid and Darlene looked at the packages available and selected one to suit their needs. “Nothing is done without your approval — even the press releases they send out, they write up and send back to you and make sure it’s OK,” said Sid. “I told them what I wanted on the cover — a cabin on the shore, a dock out front, a few fishing boats, and I was very happy to see the cover when it came out and very impressed with what they did,” said Sid. Meanwhile, the author is about 3/4 of the way through his next book, which he said will be of a more spiritual nature. “I read a lot — a variety of things, mostly commentary and history and how it’s tied in with the Bible’s teachings.” Home on the Big Salmon is available online at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble. com or Xlibris.com or by asking local bookstores to order it. The book can also be ordered by calling 1-888-795-4274, extension 7879.

We do it the light way.

Looking to create the perfect mood? A good table or floor lamp can make all the difference and Teresa can help you make the right choice.

Still friendly with ex-in-laws

ear Annie: In no uncertain terms, my son and his second wife have told me that it is wrong to be in contact with my son’s ex-wife. They’ve said my ex-daughter-in-law should not be invited to my home or to family functions, and that including her shows a total lack of support for my son. I am not close to my ex-daughter-inlaw, although I hold no animosity toward her. But, Annie, I’ve known her for 30 Kathy Mitchell & Marcy Sugar years, and she is the mother of my grandchildren. Shutting her out does not seem reasonable, nor is it a good example for my grandchildren. I see my son and his current wife very rarely. They do not invite me to their home. They do not bother with my other children and have a limited interest in family gatherings. I am not part of their lives. They say it’s because I still see the ex, but even when I don’t include her, they still don’t come around. My son refuses to talk about any of this, and his wife seems only too happy to attack me. What is the best way to handle this situation? — Danged if I Do and Danged if I Don’t Dear Danged: Of course it is wrong for your son and his wife to tell you who you can and cannot contact, but that

ANNIE'S MAILBOX

won’t change their response. We don’t recommend inviting your ex-daughterin-law to any function where your son or his wife might be present. That is simply asking for trouble and will be interpreted as a deliberate slap in the face. We suggest less blatant ways to stay in touch with your ex-daughter-in-law, such as e-mail and phone calls. Visits should be saved for those occasions involving the grandchildren where your presence together would be expected. Dear Annie: That letter from “Dutiful Daughter” described my mother perfectly. She said her mother, now in her late 80s, was becoming increasingly difficult and rude. You suggested an evaluation to check for dementia. We did that with our mother, and the doctor says she is mentally fine. She has just become rude. And apparently, because of her advanced age, she thinks she has earned the right to be as nasty as she likes. My siblings and I dread taking her anywhere. So now that we know it’s not dementia, how do we handle her? — Not Dutiful for Much Longer Dear Not Dutiful: With honesty, boundaries, consistency and some behavior modification. When Mom is rude, point it out to her, nicely, and say that you don’t like to be around her when she cannot treat you decently. If she continues, get up and leave. There is no reason to subject yourself to constant nastiness. Although it will probably take a little

while, either she will learn to behave more politely, or you will see her less often. Win-win. Dear Annie: I want to respond to “Heartbroken in Canada,” whose children ignored her on Mother’s Day. That was my eighth Mother’s Day after the sudden, tragic death of my only child at age 14. Every breath I take is a struggle without her. How does one celebrate Mother’s Day after the death of a child? Gratitude. I am grateful for having the opportunity to be a mom, even for only 14 years. I am grateful the last words I said to her were “I love you.” I am grateful she did not suffer. I am grateful to “The Compassionate Friends,” an organization that supports bereaved family members. I am grateful when a friend remembers to say “happy Mother’s Day” instead of nothing. If your children are alive and breathing, celebrate. Until you have suffered a mother’s worst nightmare, be grateful. You may someday become a grandmother. I lost that gift when my only child died. — An Angel’s Mom Dear Mom: Our deepest condolences on the loss of your daughter. Thank you for reminding our readers to appreciate the blessings they have. Please e-mail your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net, or write to: Annie’s Mailbox, c/o Creators Syndicate, 5777 W. Century Blvd., Ste. 700, Los Angeles, CA

Davison Orchards celebrates Canada Day Morning Star Staff

Home-baked apple pie with ice cream followed by an ice-cold Applelanche are both on the menu today as Davison Orchards celebrates Canada’s 144th birthday. The farm’s Canada Day celebrations are highlighted by an oldfashioned barbecue from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. with chicken or beef on a bun, accompanied by salad and dessert. All of the farm’s usual fun activities will be open, including family games at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. in the Crazy Cow Kids Corral — admission is $4 for children, parents free. Check out the huge sandbox, complete with a half-buried farm truck and ride-on lawnmowers. This area is covered with a shade cloth for safe fun all summer long. Make your way through the maze or explore the Farm Jail, complete with an escape hatch. Get the best view on the farm by climbing up to the tree house, then take the slide back down. The duck races are a highlight — using old fash-

ioned hand pumps to race plastic duckies ($2 each) through the water chutes. Don’t forget to try milking Bessie the cow, driving the John Deere trikes around the track, and of course the corn bins offer loads of fun. There are also farm facts to learn all around the Kids Corral, as well as corn tippees, straw jumps, and more. It’s good clean, farm fun – with great family picture opportunities. Over at the Critter Corral, don’t forget your quarters to get a handful of goat feed and watch

the goats as they run up and over the goat walk, eager to munch on your gift. Check out the chickens, say hello to Salsa the 25-year-old donkey, and peek at the bunnies, happy in

the shade of their hut. There is no admission charge for the Critter Corral. Davison Orchards is at 3111 Davison Rd., off Bella Vista Road in Vernon.

Lawyer practises a different craft Morning Star Staff

“It was the native people and the ranchers who inspired me.”

You can take the lawyer out of the Chilcotin but the Chilcotin remains an important part of Bruce Fraser’s life. He spent years there in his law practice, owns a ranch near Lac La Hache and returns to the beloved country in his book, On Potato Mountain A Chilcotin Mystery. “I have a good feeling for the country and its people and taking part in the Homathko River survey for a dam site for the B.C. Power Commission cemented my relationship to it,” said Fraser, who recently retired in Vancouver after practising law for 45 years. “The Chilcotin is a land protected by the mountains and its people. The Chilcotin are not a large tribe, they’re the furthest reach of the Cree Indians in B.C. It was the native people and the ranchers who inspired me. They’re fantastic, bigger than life.” The mystery in the book centres on people who are for and against the hydro dam to supply power to Vancouver Island, and how it affects their personal lives. The main character, Noah Hanlon, is a young native

— Bruce Fraser artist who was adopted and raised by a white family and is going to take over running the family ranch. He is charged with the murder of his adoptive father and escapes custody before he is convicted by the white court. Noah tells his story to the tribal elders who help him solve the mystery. Fraser bases the mystery on his own legal experiences, as well as how the family members react to the changes the dam might bring and Noah’s struggle to prove his innocence. He tells some of the stories of the native people and evokes a sense of

the land and life there. Potato Mountain is a real place where wild potatoes grow and the Chilcotin people gather for games and ceremonies. “The novel is set in the 1950s, when the natives didn’t have much of a say and I felt this was a story that had to be told. I think the reader will get a good sense of historical perspective as well as a good mystery. People of all ages and backgrounds have told me how much they enjoyed the story,” said Fraser. He’s at work on another book, a mystery set in the Chilcotin 20 years after On Potato Mountain. He has recently stepped down as chairman of the Access Pro Bono Society which provides free legal advice through 87 clinics across the province. He will donate 10 per cent of the royalties from On Potato Mountain to the Access Pro Bono Society. Fraser, who is also the author of a number of published short stories, will be in Vernon for a book signing at Bookland Wednesday from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Salmon Arm Children’s Festival promises fun for all ages Morning Star Staff

Close to 5,000 people turned up for last year’s Salmon Arm Children’s Festival, drawn by the games, music and delicious food. This year’s event takes place today — Canada Day — from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Salmon Arm North Fairgrounds. “The festival organizers have mandated that this festival be a free event so that all children and families in the area may enjoy a celebration

of Canadian heritage,” said Karen Bubola, one of the chairpersons of the festival. Included in the 2011 festivities is a Main Stage featuring local musician Jeanetti Spaghetti, children’s entertainers The Kerplunks from Vancouver Island, Tickles and Family Clowns from the Lower Mainland and winding up the music at the end of the day will be Cod Gone Wild, a rambunctious modern Celtic rock band, based

out of the Okanagan. The “cods” have melded four veteran musicians from diverse musical backgrounds to create an edgy version of traditional, contemporary and original Celtic, Irish and Newfoundland music. Other free activities include several inflatable bouncey houses, a dance exhibition by local dance studios, stories by James Murray, a 4H small animal display, plus lots of arts and activity tents.

The 50-cent games will also be on-site including the ever popular fish pond, tattoo parlour and wacky hair salon! Every child gets one free ticket on entry, and if they are wearing red, they get a bonus ticket. “We have lots of food vendors lined up to offer a variety of choices for all ages,” said Bubola. “Hot dogs, hamburgers, pizza, samosas, ice cream and more will be available.

Something of enormous importance could develop in the near future that could cause you to revise both your social considerations and your commercial outlook. The changes you make will enable you to operate more effectively.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Guard against inclinations to change things that are presently running smoothly. All your wellmeaning adjustments are likely to do is penalize you for your efforts.

CANCER (June 21-July 22) Only if you have the necessary stick-toitiveness to work things out can you achieve the success you’re looking for. However, you might first have to experience a test of wills in order to be a victor.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) In order to reach an agreement, it might be up to you to make a sensible concession, but do so only if your counterpart will reciprocate. Hopefully he or she will act on your cues.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You could do yourself a grave disfavor by putting more stock in the opinions of others than you do in your own thinking. It’s not necessary to penalize yourself in order to get along with colleagues. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) It might be safer to refuse someone who wants to borrow something that you consider precious. You could be risking ever seeing it again. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) You aren’t likely to escape experiencing some frustrations at this juncture. By keeping a cool head as well as your humor intact, you can achieve your objectives and minimize the negatives. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Do what you can to be helpful to others, but not to the point of allowing them to overload you with their chores and burdens. Let them fend for themselves. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Take care not to absentmindedly jump into new involvements without first considering all the ramifications. Operating in haste is a surefire way to trip over your own feet. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s one of those days when you can operate with greater efficacy if you’re able to perform your tasks at arm’s length from others. Even some wellintentioned people can be disruptive. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) All that negative thoughts will do is put a cloud over your mind and entice you to quit at the first sign of trouble instead of getting tough and asserting yourself.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Beware of a disgruntled co-worker trying to involve you in a problem she or he created in order to take some of the blame off him or herself. Don’t let this person get away with it. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) A companion might have something that could turn out to be a good deal, but not necessarily in the form it’s being presented. Be sure to check it out first before agreeing to go along with it.

REGIONAL GROWTH STRATEGY ‘One Region, One Future”

Notice of Public Hearing

Pursuant to the provisions of Section 855.2.1 of the Local Government Act, a Public Hearing will be held at the Regional District of North Okanagan Board Room, located at 9848 Aberdeen Road, Coldstream, BC on July 6, 2011 at 3:00 pm to hear representation on the following matter: REGIONAL DISTRICT OF NORTH OKANAGAN REGIONAL GROWTH STRATEGY BYLAW NO. 2500,2011

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.

The Regional Growth Strategy, when adopted by the Regional Board and accepted by member municipalities, will establish economic, social and environmental goals that promote sustainable compact complete communities. The Regional Growth Strategy expresses how communities have agreed to work together to enhance our regional quality of life and represent a collective sustainable vision for managing and benefiting from growth in the North Okanagan. The Regional Growth Strategy has been developed after three years of extensive consultation, public participation and negotiated general agreement. The Regional District of North Okanagan welcomes the public to take to opportunity to provide comments regarding this strategic level plan. Written comments may be submitted prior to July 6, 2011, 2:00 pm using the following methods: In Person/By Mail: Regional District of North Okanagan, 9848 Aberdeen Road, Coldstream, BC, V1B 2K9, or By Email: publichearing@rdno.ca, or By Fax: 250-550-3701, ATTN: RGS Public Hearing

4607 34th Street Vernon • 250-542-1975 Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder The leads made life trickier Alfred North Whitehead, an English mathematician and philosopher who died in 1947, said, “It requires a very unusual mind to make an analysis of the obvious.” At the bridge table, though, what is obvious to some players requires analysis for others. In today’s deal, follow the defense against three no-trump and decide how many errors were made. West led his fourthhighest club, the three. South played low from the board and won East’s jack with his queen. Declarer cashed the diamond king, overtook his diamond jack with dummy’s queen, and ran the heart 10. West

won with his king and led back the club two. East captured dummy’s king with his ace and continued with the club seven. South won with his 10 and claimed three hearts, five diamonds and two clubs for an overtrick. What is your error count? North added one point for his good five-card suit, making his hand worth the jump to three no-trump. First, West should have led the club six, secondhighest from an honorless suit when the top two cards are not touching. Fourth-highest ought to guarantee an honor in the suit. Second, at trick five, West, who knew South had the club 10 (East would have played the 10 at trick one if he had had both the 10 and jack), should have

led the club nine to deny the 10. Then it should have been easy for East to win with his ace and shift to spades. However, third, East could have found the right play because if South had begun with Q-9-x of clubs, he surely would have played dummy’s king at trick one.
