Demands grow for new launch

TRYING IT OUT

RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR

Caia Wilson, two, tries out the stair machine, which is part of the new exercise centre at Vernon’s Polson Park. The fitness equipment is located near the bandshell.

The primary boat launch on the Vernon end of Okanagan Lake can be overwhelmed during peak periods, and that is fuelling calls for another facility. The Okanagan Landing Community Association recommended Thursday that the Greater Vernon Advisory Committee pursue another high-capacity boat launch because of challenges at Paddlewheel Park. “We have a long-term problem here,” said president Victor Cumming of boats being near swimmers at Paddlewheel Park. “We have had no accidents so far and we’d be very unhappy if there was.” The launch, which is on land owned by the association, is also upwind, and Cumming says that creates challenges. “Fumes, gas and oil slide into the swimming area,” he said. Another concern is parking, and the association is opposed to a recent study conducted by GVAC that calls for more parking within Paddlewheel Park for tow vehicles and trailers. But to alleviate some of the current problems, the association is calling for medium-term actions like expanded vehicle parking along Okanagan Landing Road, a valet service to other sites and a new west entrance to the park specifically for trucks pulling trailers. While the association wants another launch constructed in Vernon, it has not discussed whether it would like to see the Paddlewheel Park facility ultimately closed. “The launch functions very effectively from February to June 15 and it’s used regularly for residential, commercial and industrial uses,” said Cumming. “This is an excellent deep water launch.”

Some residents are concerned with a proposal to expand the boat launch at Paddlewheel Park. Support for another boat launch on Okanagan Lake has the support of Mike Macnabb, a GVAC director. “Capacity is an issue. The number of people using boats has gone up and they’re not small boats,” he said. “We are already sitting on property we own.” GVAC owns several pieces of property along the lake at Lakeshore Road. Director Patrick Nicol would like to minimize the conflict between boaters and other recreational enthusiasts at Paddlewheel Park. “It’s really a swimming area and it has everything to do with what Okanagan Landing is about. It’s a neighbourhood area,” he said.

Mayor defends expenses ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Chris Pieper calls it commitment. Commitment to job and commitment to the taxpayers. Armstrong’s mayor is referring to the expenses he and his council submitted as part of their duties in 2010, which includes attending conferences and meetings on behalf of the city. The city’s annual report shows Pieper made a salary of $20,974 and submitted $2,333 in expenses. All six councillors made $11,935 in remuneration, with Shirley Fowler submitting the most expenses, $2,580. Coun. Paul Britton submitted just $200 in expenses while Coun.

“We’ve tried to keep expenses down.” — Chris Pieper Ron (Sully) O’ Sullivan didn’t claim any. In total, council earned just over $103,000 in remuneration and expenses. “Ever since I’ve been on council we’ve tried to keep expenses down,” said Pieper. “Our major expense, probably 80-to-85 per cent, is one event and that’s when we go to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention. If somebody doesn’t go to UBCM, expenses are usually

a couple of hundred bucks or less.” City administrator Patti Ferguson submitted the most staff expenses in 2010,

$4,855, but Pieper said that’s because Ferguson has a couple of extra meetings to attend. “They all strictly have to do with her job, 100 per cent,” said Pieper. According to the report, Ferguson is one of three city employees who make more than $75,000. Ferguson makes $110,820, public works manager Pat Hickerson is paid

Police have shut down a marijuana-grow operation in Mara. On Wednesday at about 9:30 a.m., officers executed a search warrant for the theft of Hydro and production of marihuana at a residence on Davy Road. “A total of 409 marijuana plants in various stages of growth, along with approximately five pounds of harvested bud packaged for distribution in half pound bags, and related growing equipment were seized during this Gord Molendyk search,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. When officers arrived on the rural property, they saw a man fleeing the property in a truck. “It took off out of the south end of the property on to a forest service road and then out to Highway 97A” said Molendyk. “The male driver was arrested when the truck he was driving became held up in a line of traffic caused by a motor vehicle accident on Highway 97B near Salmon Arm.” A 28-year-old man from Canoe was arrested and taken into. The suspect has since been released from custody he is expected to face charges of production of marijuana, production of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking and theft of telecommunication (B.C. Hydro) at a later date. Two other people were arrested as they arrived at the property while the search was being conducted. Both have been released without charge at this point, however, the investigation is continuing. “This is the second grow operation our Rural members have dismantled in the past week as our detachment continues move forward on our strategic priority of crime reduction,” said Molendyk.

GREATER VERNON WATER UTILITY - WATER QUALITY ADVISORY - UPDATE The Regional District of North Okanagan - Greater Vernon Water Utility (RDNO - GVWU) advises that the Water Quality Advisory will continue until further notice for customers on the Duteau Creek water source. GVWU has been actively monitoring the water quality and all bacterial tests have been clear, however, the Duteau Creek Water Treatment Plant has been unable to achieve turbidity under 1.5 NTU. As a result, the water quality rating remains as FAIR. Until color and turbidity return to normal, those with young children, the elderly, weakened immune systems or anyone requiring additional protection should boil their water for one (1) minute when using the water for drinking, washing fruit and vegetables, making beverages and brushing teeth. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the RDNO-GVWU at 250.550.3700. Please check the website for information and further updates at www.rdno.ca.

Fees frozen for swimming in Lumby RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Recreational users are getting a break in the Lumby area. The Regional District of North Okanagan board has adopted 2011/2012 fees for the White Valley Parks, Recreation and Culture Committee. It includes no increase in fees for public skating and swimming. Director Eugene Foisy says the decision was made not to hike public swimming and skating fees because of

“People are having a hard time.” — Eugene Foisy the negative impact the recession has had on families. “People are having a hard time and the mon-

ey’s just not there for them,” he said. There has been some concern that some residents are foregoing

recreational pursuits because of the cost. A recent staff report indicated that there was a decrease in revenue for the pool and arena from 2009 to 2010 even though fees went up last year. However, Lumby area residents will have to dig a little deeper for some recreational activities. Fees for rentals, such

as ice time and field use, will climb two per cent to cover utilities, materials and labour. The RDNO board has also given approval to fees for parks and recreation facilities in Greater Vernon. Fees for public skating and swimming will not increase but those for rental of fields and facilities will climb two per cent.

Fred hangs up his pen

I

’m not sure if there’s any kind of world record for working long past the traditional age of retirement. My dad is 77 and still working full-time, and I have no doubt it is what has kept him healthy of body and sharp of mind. But he doesn’t come close to Fred Lyall, who at almost 95 has decided to step down from writing his longtime column for The Morning Star, In the Garden. When Fred broke the Katherine Mortimer bad news to me, I jokingly told him how lazy he was that just because he was getting on in years, he thought he could start to take it easy. But knowing Fred, he isn’t likely to be relaxing in a La-Z-Boy, remote control in hand. Instead, he will no doubt tend to his beloved garden, which includes hanging baskets the likes of which I’ve rarely seen. In winter, he will probably be on the ice at the Vernon Curling Club. When I started working at the paper in 1995, one of my toughest assignments was learning to decipher the hieroglyphics that was and still is Fred’s handwriting. To this day, I’m certain that my colleague Cara Brady and myself are the only members of the newsroom staff who are able to competently typeset Fred’s columns. For Fred is the only columnist for whom I don’t insist on his work being e-mailed to me. So each week, like clockwork, and always well ahead of deadline, I receive three or four double-spaced, handwriting pages on three-hole loose-leaf paper. Over the years, Fred and I have enjoyed many conversations, with topics ranging from gardening to our favourite runs at Silver Star, to the latest news about his sons and grand-

sons. He has listened patiently to my endless questions about what to plant in shade, how to prune my roses and what type of food to use on my hostas. Born and raised on the Prairies, Fred is a veritable encyclopedia of gardening knowledge, which he willingly and happily shares. He has often published his home phone number in the paper, and encouraged gardeners — beginner and expert alike — to call him with their queries. He has never been shy about sharing his opinions on everything from rodeos to the provincial government’s latest faux pas. As well, Fred has shown his gift of empathy, expressing sorrow at losses I’ve suffered over the years. A veteran of the Second World War, he has no doubt experienced his share of loss, but has always been quick with a kind word, a joke, a story. He has shared his advice at the secret to a long and happy life, “Wine, women and whisky,” said of course with a twinkle in his eye. And he has given hours of his time, along with other members of the Okanagan Gardens and Roses Club, to the rose gardens at Hospice House, watering, deadheading blooms and ensuring they are beautiful for Hospice residents. Every year, he has invited me to the Okanagan Gardens and Roses Club Christmas party. One year, with no child care available, I took my young daughter. She of course took immediately to Fred, who scooped her up for a big hug and has never failed to tell me what a delight she is, music to all parents’ ears. And as Fred hangs up his pen, I want to say on behalf of everyone at The Morning Star that it has been an honour and a pleasure to have you as part of our team, Fred. I wish you and Margaret all the best in your retirement. But if you think I’m going to stop bugging you for gardening advice, think again: your phone number is not only in my Rolodex, I’ve actually committed it to memory.

We’ve heard of the politics of fear, but Premier Christy Clark is quickly defining the politics of the fearful. The politician-turned-talkshow-host-turned-politician continues to avoid defending her political beliefs in public with yet another refusal to debate her opponent. NDP leader Adrian Dix challenged Clark to a debate on the HST, a verbal tussle that would have been aired on Vancouver’s CKNW radio station. Not surprisingly, Clark declined the invitation. The premier’s decision to avoid debating Dix follows her avoidance of speaking to the HST in the Legislature when she invoked closure when it was her turn to speak to the issue. And, of course, Clark refused to attend all-candidates meetings during the Vancouver-Point Grey byelection campaign that saw her barely defeat NDP candidate David Eby. It is clear Clark is afraid to back up her style with substance, but why? If Clark truly believes the HST is good for B.C. and crucial to the future of this province’s economy, wouldn’t she be salivating at the opportunity to discredit HST opponents like Dix? In a statement in response to Dix’s challenge, Clark said the NDP is trying to politicize the issue — presumably unlike Clark and the B.C. Liberals politicizing the issue by running information ads that look and sound suspiciously like rabidly pro-HST promotional commercials. Critics have long accused Clark of being more style than substance. The fact she appears to be running from every challenge does nothing to counter that criticism. — Kamloops This Week

Postal workers state case

T

he recent contract negotiations between Canada Post and its largest union have been widely reported in the media, yet I don’t believe Canadians are getting all of the facts. Canada Post is demanding that the current sick leave benefits be replaced by a new short-term disability program. In order to understand the ramifications of this program, the public needs to be aware that more than 10% of postal workers were hurt on the job nationwide last year. In 2010, 5.75 per 100 postal workers suffered from a disabling injury as a result of working at Canada Post. The number of days lost due to an injury per employee (WCB approved) was 3.94 days in 2009. The severity of postal worker injuries is also much worse than aver-

age, yet Canada Post wants to introduce a program that would give their consultants the final say over a doctor’s decision, and would leave some workers unprotected. Canada Post has been profitable for the last 15 years. They say they can’t afford to negotiate a contract without rollbacks, yet

LONG-TERM CARE NEEDED I have been reading, with much interest, much that has been written recently about the bed shortage at the hospital and agree that something must be done. However, the plea for more acute care beds may be misguided. You recently had an article which stated that 20 or 30 acute care beds are always being used for long term elderly people. These beds costa bout $1,300 per day in the hospital. The cost for a bed in a care home is about one/ tenth of that. According to my calculations that amounts to about $25,000 a day in unnecessary costs. Taken out for a month it is about $750,000 , or in a year almost $10,000,000. I recently had a friend spend three months in the hospital when he should have been in a care home. We, as taxpayers, wasted more than $100,000 on this man because there was no proper accommodation for him. To make this even more of a crime, the hospital is ill equipped to handle this type of patient as there is no space and no staff to provide any kind of exercise or stimulation. As a result, he was very frustrated and as he became disruptive or hard to control he was often strapped to his bed or to a chair. The result was a rapid acceleration of dementia. Since the end of March he has been, perhaps temporarily, in a care home where he is happier, better cared for and not deteriorating so rapidly. This is not meant to be critical of the hospi-

they posted their highest profit ever (281 million) in 2009. They mislead Canadians by claiming lettermail volumes have declined , but the fact is overall mail volumes are about 10% higher now than 10 years ago. They also claim that the union’s demands would cost 1.4 billion dollars, yet refuse to explain how they

tal. It is merely a statement that the hospital is being required to provide a service that it is not equipped to provide. A much better argument could be made for the provision of more long-term care beds which would remove these patients from the hospital and free up the acute care beds for use as they are intended. In my mind, this makes much better economic sense while providing more appropriate care for those elderly who can no longer care for themselves. Denis Smith 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 prevent the HST from making 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 democratic grassroots government that is within our own Canadian constitution and they may think twice before risking trying to ram anything else down our own throats again.

justify this number. Canada Post provides universal, reliable service with one of the lowest standard postal rates in the industrialized world. Postal jobs provide workers with a decent wage, benefits and pension. Postal workers spend money in their communities, boosting the economy for all. They can maintain their families’ health and education, providing the next generation of Canadians contributing to our society. Retired workers do not live in poverty, draining our country’s social programs. Our struggle is for good jobs and better lives for all Canadians. There is nothing broken here; why does Canada Post want to ‘fix’ it? Cliff Vico, president CUPW local 848

I witnessed the tears of a nation when cancer returned and cut short his epic journey. I applauded his mother, Betty Fox, when she took up and continued his great hope of finding a cure for cancer.

Robert Thibeau CLIMATE CHANGE In the recent speech from the throne, there was not a word about climate change. No mention by our national government about this threat to our ability to live on this beautiful planet. The only words in support of our environment and future generations came from Senate page Michelle DePape who held up the sign reading Stop Harper. Congratulations to this courageous young woman who risked her position as a page, as well as criticism from those afraid of change. Michelle stands with Agnes McPhail, Greenpeace and other Canadians who refused to be silent about social and ecological injustice. She spoke truth to power. She set a fine example. She spoke for me.

HST VOTE Please read the question carefully when voting. It has been designed confuse the public. They have used reverse thing on us. I think it is in poor taste to use such wording just to confuse the public. So vote yes if you do not want HST. Every one that is against to HST must vote yes to kill the HST Harry Dixon

Puppies abandoned in crate

Now Open New Owners • Newly Renovated Store

Morning Star Staff

Residents are being asked to get involved in a case of puppy abandonment. Five four-week-old puppies were left beside a dumpster at the PetroCanada station at 27th Street and 48th Avenue Tuesday afternoon. “The Roti-cross pups were in a closed apple crate on a day when the temperature reached 33 Celsius,” said Corinne Ross, Vernon SPCA manager. “The puppies are injured, weak from lack of food and dehydrated. One has a festering neck wound and a scar on his nose and has been put on antibiotics. A second has head trauma, swelling, and can’t open his eyes. Yet another has an eye infection.” The situation has upset SPCA staff and volunteers. “These helpless little puppies don’t deserve

Their injuries, in addition to the way

they were abandoned, is highly suspect. We are asking the public to jog their memories and report anything to us that might help explain how the puppies came to be there.” The puppies were rescued when a Petro-

Canada employee was taking garbage to the dumpster and heard a sound coming from the crate. “A call was placed to dog control who immediately turned the puppies in to the SPCA shelter so the pups

could receive medical attention,” said Ross. “The pups, who are very frail, are currently in foster care with a shelter employee.” If you have any information about this case, call the Vernon SPCA at 250-549-7297.

Cadets arrive for summer training

Deb White

Morning Star Staff

With 638 youth making their way to the Vernon Army Cadet Summer Training Centre, staff are busy preparing for a new season. While those in the general training course will only stay for two weeks, and others enrolled in basic courses will be in Vernon for three weeks, most of the cadets will spend six weeks at the centre. And, although they all wear the same summer uniform, the cadets will receive instruction in a wide variety of skills, techniques and procedures depending on their age and previous Army Cadet experience. “The focus at VACSTC is to be a centre of excellence for cadet training,” said Lt-Col Lyle Johnson, commanding officer. “The aim of training is to provide the cadets with a positive life experience that builds skills and abilities which are transferable to all aspects of their lives. Every cadet should be challenged by aspects of their CSTC experience, making their experience positive, effective and worthwhile.” Although VACSTC is organized as an army battalion in respect to command and control, its mandate is similar to that of a school, with cadets assigned to specific courses based on their age and previous army cadet training. The youngest cadets, enrolled in the general training group, approximately 450 in total, are attending their first summer camp, and they will learn the skills necessary to successfully function in a summer training centre, including, for many, their first experience in commu-

They also take part in an overnight field training exercise, learn to fire the air rifle, take part in a summer biathlon, and challenge the mini-confidence course. The next stages of training for cadets are the three-week basic cadet courses, which prepare cadets for junior leadership positions at their home corps. In addition, basic cadets receive instruction is specific areas, including musicianship, fitness and sports, marksmanship and expedition. Older cadets are trained to fill the roles of senior leaders at the home units, and are presented with leadership opportunities. They are expected to provide guidance and direction to each other while filling leadership roles. This training is delivered through specific courses, including

drill and ceremonial, air rifle instructor and expedition instructor and intermediate band. Because fitness is one of the primary aims of the cadet organization, all cadets take part in team sports and the cadet fitness incentive program where their fitness levels are tested and they are encouraged to improve over the summer. The final parade and sunset ceremony will take place Aug. 18, when another summer comes to a close.

cent over last year to 73 units from 53. “The slight rebound and gradual improvement in June is promising,” said Rob Shaw, Okanagan Mainline Real Estate Board vice-president. “We hope to continue to see modest gains in sales if activity picks up with the warm weather and an influx of out-of-town buyers.” Shaw says it’s too soon to tell if there will be a slow down over the summer. “July will be a good indicator as to an ongoing trend,” he said. “Although inventory is on the decline, serious buyers enjoy an excellent selection of homes in the North Okanagan, and are taking advantage of good prices and wide choices while they are still available.”

Real estate activity remains a challenge in the North Okanagan. There were 131 overall property sales in June, a five per cent decrease compared to 138 during the same month in 2010. Sales volumes went from $48.9 to $43.2 million. However, sales improved 6.5 per cent over the 123 units sold during May.

Community tees it up for charity JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

The second annual Community Golf Day tournament is less than a week away, and it is shaping up to be even bigger than last year. “It’s just a fun event for the whole family,” said event chair Bruce Shepherd, adding that golfers of all skill levels are invited to come out. The charitable event, taking place on Sunday at the Vernon Golf and Country Club in partnership with the Kalamalka Rotary Club, is in support of the maternal child department in Vernon Jubilee Hospital’s new patient care tower. The golf itself is free, but there is a minimum $50 donation to the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation. Tax receipts

There are also several individual hole sponsors including Prospera Credit Union, Clarke Robinson, Edward Jones/Bruce Shepherd, Candeloro/May Wealth

will be issued for all donations. The tournament includes a full round of golf, golf carts at member prices, a bydonation barbeque, and complimentary range balls for those who want a bit of practice before they tee off. “Regular green fees (at Vernon Golf and Country Club) are $65,” said Shepherd. “So it’s still a great deal.” For a lucky few there will be some incredible hole-in-one prizes including a $10,000

Management, KPMG, Davidson Lawyers, Lett Agar, Royal LePage, National Bank Financial, Romei Plummer, and Andy Erickson/Investors Group. One hundred and fifty golfers have already signed up for the tournament, but there is room for 220. “Hopefully we can fill up,” said Shepherd. People can still sign up as late as Saturday, but the sooner the better as the good tee times are getting filled up. It should be a great event says Shepherd. “And it looks like the weather is going to cooperate, fingers crossed.”

JOHN HASSETT/QUINNIPIAC ATHLETICS GIL TALBOT/MERRIMACK ATHLETICS

Twin forwards Connor (above) and Kellen (middle) Jones of the Quinnipiac Bobcats, along with defenceman Kyle Bigos of the Merrimack Warrior, are showcasing their skills this week at the Edmonton Oilers’ prospects camp. The former Viper trio played major roles in helping Vernon record back-to-back Royal Bank Cup national junior A hockey titles in 2009 and ‘10.

Viper grads back in Oiler camp GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Twins Connor and Kellen Jones are trying to hold court with some of the best forward prospects in the NHL. Defenceman Kyle Bigos’ job is to shut them all down. Neither is an easy assignment, but the three Vernon Viper alumni wouldn’t trade this thrill ride for box seats at the Stanley Cup finals. The trio have been skating all week at the Edmonton Oilers prospects camp, which ends Saturday with a mini 3-on-3 tournament. “Last year was pretty exciting, just with Kellen getting drafted (seventh round, 202nd overall) and being out there with (Taylor) Hall and (Jordan) Eberle and those types of players. “I think we’re still in disbelief that we’re here, but this year we’re trying to make an impact and be some of the best players out there,” said Connor, a Montrose, B.C. native. The camp mainly comprises the Oilers’ younger prospects from the junior, college and AHL level, the top name being Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, selected first overall by the Oilers in last month’s NHL Entry Draft. “He’s pretty down-to-earth; he doesn’t act like a No. 1 pick. He’s just happy to be here,” said Connor, of RNH’s grounded demeanour. Added Kellen: “Everything is top of the line. They treat you like you’re a pro already; that’s a great part of it.

“Everyone has the same feeling – thrilled to have this chance and we want to make the most of this opportunity. We just want to make sure we’re developing. We both know what it takes and we just work as hard as we can.” For Bigos, a fourth-round draft selection (99th overall in 2009), the journey to becoming an elite prospect hasn’t been without its challenges. He has basically lived away from his home in Upland, Calif. since he was 15, heading to the Notre Dame Hounds program in Wilcox, Sask. before coming to the Vipers. He also lost his father, Walter Bigos, a former draft pick of the Boston Red Sox, last month to a heart attack. “I went through some hard times, but it’s worth it. I thank my family so much for helping me make that sacrifice,” said Bigos, a fan favourite during his time in Vernon. The 22-year-old blueliner added it has been great reconnecting with the twins in Edmonton. “I miss them so much. It’s really a joy to be around them. We had a skills contest (Wednesday) and they blew by some guys, which was good to see,” said Bigos, who got his first introduction to yoga this week at Oiler camp. “I felt tons better after that. I’m definitely going to continue that at home.” A gentle giant until he steps on the ice, Bigos helped the NCAA Division 1 Merrimack Warriors to an impressive 16-8-3 record (25-10-4 overall) in his sophomore year, good

enough for fourth in the Hockey East conference. He skated alongside former Viper Mike Collins, who Bigos says is starting to get a handle on NCAA hockey. Collins finished as Merrimack’s top freshman with 14-16-30 in 36 games. “He had a bit of a slow start, but the second half he just exploded onto the scene. It was just awesome watching him,” smile Bigos, who collected 2-6-8 and 45 penalty minutes in 32 games, and was one of 10 Warriors named to the Hockey East All-Academic team. After helping the Vipers win back-to-back Royal Bank Cup titles, the twins were brought back to earth somewhat in their freshman season with the Division Quinnipiac Bobcats, who went 6-9-7 in ECAC conference play (16-15-8 overall). “It was an eye-opener after being in Vernon for a while. It was a little frustrating to be at the lower part of the league. We don’t want to get used to losing, so next year we’re looking to change and turn things around,” said Connor, who finished second in team scoring (9-15-24) behind captain and former Viper Scott Zurevinski. Kellen, who ranked fourth with 8-14-22, credits Zurevinski for making their adjustment to college hockey a good one. “He’s just awesome. He’s great to everyone, no matter who you are. He’ll also tell you how it is. If you’re not doing well, he’ll tell you,” said Kellen.

“Our guys could have packed it in too, and mentally they didn’t. They showed a lot of heart in a pressure game. “But we’re at the point now where we’ve got to take advantage of our opportunities. We’ve got to be better against Kelowna; it’s the only way we’ll win. For Flames’ head coach Tony Ramsay, it was a disappointing way to end the season. “It’s frustrating to lose that way; to be put down a man and lose in overtime. That’s all I can say, nicely,” said Ramsay. “We’re a young team, committed and they’re playing for keeps. It’s all you can ask. Put your best on the floor and let the chips fall where they fall. “We lose a couple to age, but we have a young team so we should be strong next year with a few Midgets coming up.”

Tigers' Joey Klein (left) cuts around Flames' defender Ryan Harms in Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoff action Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre.

c “Ex

The South Okanagan Flames made them work for it, but the Vernon Re/Max Tigers are through to the second round of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoffs. The Cats outlasted the visiting Flames 9-8 in a controversial double-overtime thriller Wednesday night at Wesbild Centre, sweeping the best-of-three quarterfinal. In the second, sudden-death OT (the first OT was 10 minutes, non-sudden death), South Okanagan’s Nick Kapusty was assessed an unsportsmanlike minor moments after the Flames erupted over what they felt was a non-call on a crease violation in Vernon’s zone. On the ensuing powerplay, Craig Bigsby dished a pass down low to Mitch Steel, who recorded the winner at 7:48. “They were attacking us and trying to get back for defence, but we got it and I just passed one down to Mitch and he buried it. Going through two guys, I was kind of nervous throwing that one,” said Bigsby, who ended the night with two goals and an assist. Bigsby credited the Flames for not rolling over. “They wanted to win it to put it to three games so we had to come out here firing and they came out and did the exact same thing as us. It was pretty intense.” Vernon will visit the league-leading Kelowna Raiders in Game 1 of the bestof-three semifinal Saturday at Memorial Arena. The Raiders had a first-round playoff bye. In the other semi, the Armstrong Shamrocks, who also earned a first-round bye, host the Kamloops Venom for Game 1 Monday night (7:30) at Nor-Val Sports Centre. Wednesday’s game was a seesaw affair, with the two teams exchanging the lead

changing four times. Trailing by a goal in the first period, the Tigers’ Riley Soleway equalized with the first of his five-goal performance on a terrific solo effort. South Okanagan went ahead again, but Bigsby, on a nice feed from Nolan Frame, and Soleway, on the powerplay, made it 3-2 Vernon after the first period. The Flames surged ahead again in the second period on goals by Tyler Berkholtz and Kapusty, only to have Soleway reply with two of his own, the second set up nicely by roadrunner Jay Seaton to give Vernon a 5-4 lead after 40 minutes. Bigsby, on a strong second effort, extended Vernon’s lead in the third frame, but Berkholtz, intercepting a Tiger clearance attempt, and Derek Grimm fired singles to keep the visitors rolling. Vernon captain Brett Hanna had the Tigers’ other third period marker, while Chris Pond forced OT by spinning around a double team to go in on netminder Tyler Landry. Hanna had to be helped off the floor in the first OT after he took a hard check from Berkholtz at the side of the net. Vernon tallied first in the extra frame on a 4-on-3 powerplay. Landry made a stellar breakaway save on Quinn Ramsay and the Tigers’ transitioned into a 2-on-1 break, capped by Soleway. Just 28 seconds away from elimination, the Flames pushed it to sudden death on a Chris Johnson goal. “We did not give South Okanagan a lot of respect, and they made us pay for that. Fifteen runners and they just about beat us,” said assistant coach Dave McWhirter, who credited Tigers young guns Seaton, Braden Barr and Darryl Landels for stepping up their game. “My hat is off to South Okanagan, they could have packed it in and got ready for a summer holiday, and they gave it to us.

Sylvester sizzles for Sistas attack Speedy Kim Sylvester delivered a hat trick to help Season’s Sistas ground Salmon Arm Kaos 3-1 for their first North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division win Tuesday night at Marshall Field #2. Starting the game two girls short and battling the heat, the Sistas, now 1-9-1, got off to an ideal start as Andrea Zubot took possession off the opening kickoff and fed a gorgeous through ball to the roadrunner Sylvester, who made no mistake burying a shot past the Salmon Arm keeper. Sistas never slowed down and continued great passing, while Sherry Weibe, supported by Gizelle Duquette and hard-working Becky (Bubbles) Birbillis, controlled the back line. Strong, steady centre half play by Angela Otto formed the launching point of multiple Sistas’ attacks. Up front, Sylvester stole the show, streaking past the Kaos defenders on some great through balls by Zubot. Kaos (1-8-1) made it close in the second half, tying the game on an amazing corner kick that resulted in a blast over Sistas’ keeper Jaunita Garner. Less than a minute later, the Sistas recovered the lead and never looked back. Honourable mentions went to Sistas’ Coca Fair, playing some net and outside half while recovering from a calf injury. Deb Whitling made some outstanding moves and passes, and Sasha Schenker, playing with a heat-resistant ailment, managed to sub on every 10 minutes to help her shorthanded squad. Goplen Drillers ended a bad spell with a 4-3 win over Shuswap Merlot Tuesday at Marshall #1. Goplen Game MVP honours were shared by Kylah Bryde, who scored a pair of goals, and Lisa Lanaway, making her Driller debut (she played competitive with the former Celtics in the 90s). With no subs and no coach, the Drillers (3-5-3) beat the heat by playing with lots of communication and good passing. Karen Zupp scored the first goal on an excellent cross by Geri O’Brien. After supplying sister-in-law Shelley Zupp with three incredible crosses, Karen left one right on the goal crease that Shelley buried. Vel Beaumont kept the back line in check with her supportive chatter. Nancy Nickoli distributed the ball well, while sister-in-law Shaun Nickoli made some great

grabs, showing her confidence as a seasoned goalie. In the second half, Bryde scored with a hard shot after receiving a pass from Shelley Zupp. Her second goal, assisted by O’Brien, was a high rocket over the Merlot keeper’s head. Merlot are 5-5-1. The Vernon Controllers and Okanagan Impact were unable to break their thirdplace deadlock, and instead settled for a 2-2 tie Tuesday night. The Controllers’ Leslie Epp put a 35-yarder on to the foot of Jenny Currie, who deftly looped a shot over Impact keeper Wendy Ellis from 30 yards out to open the scoring. Impact, even with the Controllers at 7-32, drew equal 10 minutes later when the ball pin-balled in front of the Controllers’ net, with Shelinda Morin chipping it over Michele Wernicke. Wernicke responded by making a highlight-reel save in the second half, blocking an absolute rocket by an Impact striker from eight yards out, then corralling the loose ball. Both sides were in awe. Later in the second half, the Controllers’ Danielle Dunsmore sent a nifty pass to Deana Baker, who lofted a 25-yarder over Ellis for the go-ahead goal. But the Impact’s Jody Hawthorne replied with a well-placed shot underneath the bar with ten minutes later.

Phillips paces Outlaw offence In Competitive Division action, Lori Phillips collected a goal and an assist as Little Tex Outlaws blanked Dr. Lee’s Dental/ Checkers 2-0 Tuesday night at Marshall #3. Phillips opened the scoring, assisted by Lyndsay Lee, and then set up Monica Neilson for the insurance marker, pushing Little Tex to 6-3-1. Gineil Ferrier earned the shut out with many great saves, Stephanie Steward had great runs down the side, pushing the ball up-field with many great crosses, and Elaina Huisken had a great game on defensively, helping the Outlaws shut down repeated Dr. Lees attacks. The Checkers crew is 6-3. North Enderby Timber let their Celtic pride shine through, battling hard in a 3-1 loss to first-place TED United of Salmon Arm Tuesday on Marshall #4. The 1-9 Celtics played their hearts out in the first half, taking a 1-0 lead into the break on a Lisa Knauf strike. Knauf out-worked the defensive line,

She was one of the hardest working players on the field,” said Celtic coach Graham Ross. TED replied with three quick goals in

the second half, taking full advantage of the few scoring chances they generated. Taryn Lloyd was solid in the NET goal, shutting down many TED through balls. Tonia Ghattas controlled the midfield, physically dominating on every ball in her possession.

Vernon’s Conner Kozak is alone in fifth place after three rounds of the B.C. Junior Men’s Golf Championships at the Birchbank Golf Club in Trail. After opening with identical rounds of 75, Kozak, a member of the Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club, carded a sizzling 7-under par 65 to charge up the leaderboard to sit at one under. Defending champion Adam Svensson of Surrey (67-68-71) was 10-under after three rounds and had a seven-stroke lead over Pitt Meadows’ Kevin Kwon (67-72-74) and Coquitlam’s Brian Jung (72-75-67), who were tied for second. After shooting a pair of 73s, Spall’s Brady Stead fired an 80 in the third round to sit tied for 34th at plus-10. At the qualifier tournament at the Canoe Creek Golf Course in Salmon Arm, Stead recorded the lowest score of the competition, a 3-under par 69,

Brad Jones and Randy Todosychuk, both of Spall, did not make the cut. Stead, Kozak, Jones, Justin Wurz and David Szestopalow will all play in the B.C. Amateur Championships, which

start Tuesday at The Dunes in Kamloops. Meanwhile, Hillview pro Keith Vandenbrink carded a 67 in individual play to pocket a $315 fourth-place payday at the Gallagher’s Canyon Pro-Am Tuesday afternoon in Kelowna.

The event teamed Okanagan Valley pros in fivesomes with Gallagher’s ladies club members, and Vandenbrink’s group took second overall for an extra $150. He won another $100 in the long drive competition.

A total of 10 Vernon Kokanee Swim Club members collected a stash of medals and personal best times at the B.C. AA Long Course Championships at the H2O pool in Kelowna. More than 300 athletes from 36 clubs from B.C. and Yukon competed in the event, jointly hosted by Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna, Summerland and Penticton clubs. Competing in the Under 10 Swim Stars competition was eightyear-old Asia Minnes, who attained a bronze in the 50-metre breaststroke, setting a new Kokanee record in 43.64 seconds. She earned 12th overall in Swim Stars. Also in Swim Stars, Jordyn Ross took bronze in 100-m backstroke, fifth in 400-m freestyle and sixth in both 100-m free and 200-m IM, resulting in an impressive sixth place overall. Kaia Phillips, racing in the 13 girls division, struck gold in 100-m free, silver in 200-m back, 400-m free and 800-m free, bronze in 50-m free and 400-m IM, fourth in 100-m butterfly, and sixth in 200-m free. In the Open girls class, Alison Hughes pocketed double-gold in 200-m butterfly and 400-m IM,

Okanagan banks Masters bronze Morning Star Staff

The Leko Okanagan Grand Masters invaded the coast with just 14 runners and no goalies, and still managed to plunder a bronze medal from the Masters Box Lacrosse Championships in Burnaby. Said assistant manager Jeff Hanley: “We had a much larger commitment at the beginning of the season, but as the tournament date approached we had quite a few guys bow out. “Family commitments, burnout and nagging chaffing issues were cited as the main reasons for some backing out.” Luckily, the OK Masters were able to pick up a pair of goalies – Randy Clough and Tony Martin – from the coast. The teams youngest player, Ryan Nitchie, was confident in his ability to handle the team’s offence, but he was well aware of the unwritten rule that, if need be, he would be called upon to stand between the pipes. Leko’s first game was against long-time rival North Shore Indians, known for their tough brand of lacrosse. Veterans like Lance McGregor, Jock Worth, Adrien Lemaire and Mike Sigalet were up to the challenge, and with Martin

(a former Indian) in net, they earned a 7-4 win. Said first-year grand master Glen (Stumpy) Mitchell: “ I don’t know why everyone says these guys are so bad. I was talking to a lot of them on the floor and they all invited me out to the parking lot after the game for a chat.” Gord Roberts led the scoring with a pair, with singles coming from Steve Crossley, Lemaire, Pat Nelson, Mitchell and Nitchie. The Okanagan crew didn’t bother getting undressed after the game, as they went straight out for their next match against the Surrey Firefighters. Okanagan came out hard and quickly built a six-goal lead. The Firefighters then put their trade skills to use, hacking and chopping their way back to equalize at 10-10 late in the third period. With less than a minute to go, Nelson took a crosschecking minor and Leko went on the short man. With four seconds to go, Nitchie blocked a cannon shot from the top with his head, the loose ball going to Roberts, who fed a streaking Lemaire for the buzzer-beater winner. Nelson (2), Nitchie, Lemaire, Mitchell,

Kent Conners, Rob Seaton, McGregor and Roberts also scored. Said McGregor: “I am so excited I wish I could text somebody, but I don’t know how.” Playing on the new wood floor in Bill Copeland Arena Saturday, Leko fell 14-4 to the Ladner Pioneers. Nelson, Nitchie, Seaton and Crossley handled the Okanagan offence. The Okanagan team showed surprising restraint by not overindulging in the Canada Day weekend festivities and were rewarded with a 6-3 win over the Port Coquitlam Saints in the bronze-medal game Sunday. Nelson stayed out of the penalty box long enough to chalk up four goals, while Lemaire and Brian Blair each potted singles. North Okanagan hopes to send two teams (a 35+ and a 45+) to next year’s tourney in Port Coquitlam. For further information on getting involved in Master’s lacrosse, e-mail refnomha@gmail.com. Meanwhile, Armstrong Sr. Shamrocks’ No. 1 keeper Chad Pieper got called up to the Burnaby Coasters and helped them strike gold in the A division.

silver in the 100-m fly, fourth in 200-m free and seventh in 100-m free. Hannah Mehain grabbed bronze in the 13 girls 200-m breaststroke, and fifth in 800-m free. Dara Wasylik shaved 16 seconds off her 11 girls 200-m free time. On the boys side, Sean Manchester clocked personal best in each of his races, placing fourth in the 13 boys 200-m IM, fifth in 200-m breast, fifth in both 200-m back and 100-m breast, sixth in 100-m back, seventh in 200-m free and eighth in 100-m free. Quaid Ondzik ranked fifth in the 14 boys 200-m IM, sixth in 200-m free and seventh in 100-m breast, 200-m breast and 200-m back. In other 14 boys action, Kenyon Neumann took

bronze 200-m back, fifth in 100-m back, and eighth in both 200-m IM and 200-m breast. Jaylen Grant recorded gold in Open boys 100-m and 200-m breast to go along with a seventh in 100-m fly. The Kokanee boys medley relay team of Neumann, Manchester, Grant and Ondzik claimed silver in an exciting Open 200-m race. Said Kokanee head coach Marc Tremblay: “It was fantastic to see the Kokanee swimmers doing so well at the meet. For all of them, this meet was the coronation of a great year of swimming. We won over 14 individual medals and it was a great sight to see our kids on top of the podium.”

Turn-Key Controls pulled the upset Wednesday night at Marshall Field #5, icing second-place Davidson Dynamite FC 4-1 in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League play. Turn-Key’s Jeremy Kler was taken down in the box after a determined run, and Evan Moore made no mistake as he buried a blistering penalty strike into the right corner past a diving Dynamite keeper to make it 2-0. Continued pressure from the 4-5-1 Controls led to Chris Harris connecting on an unstoppable volley for their third goal. Davidson, now 6-3-2, made it interesting as they squeaked one by keeper Greg Douma. The Controls soon regrouped and midfielder Marco Arnold streaked down the left wing and lofted a shot up and over the keeper to restore the two-goal lead. Harris continued his hot streak as he completed the scoring off a rebound from another Arnold shot. The Turn-Key backline of Alex and Sam Nolan, Sean Bonnett and Greg Finch held the Davidson attack in check. First-place North Enderby Timber cruised to a 4-0 win over Concept Physio Monday at Marshall #3. NET (9-1-1) opened the scoring after a Concept midfielder took an unnecessary foul 23 yards out midway through the first half. Devin Janke made him pay by firing a blast top right, just under the bar. Man of the Match Jobie Waughman fooled the Concept defence, the NET offence and even himself with a misshit cross that chipped the goalie for a 2-0 lead heading into the half. NET’s go-to goal getter Brent Poulsen cleaned up the timbermen

attack by taking a clean pass from Waughman up the right wing, deking around two defenders and firing a rocket top right. Poulsen capped the scoring with a volley from 10 yards out. Graham Ross supplied him with a long chip pass to set up the strike. Brodie Couch nearly worked a fifth goal for NET, but was “slightly” off target. The Timber defensive line made life easy for keeper Danny Stein, who was hardly tested throughout the match. Concept dipped to 3-7. Meanwhile, in an Okanagan Oldtimers 45+ League makeup game Wednesday, the Pushor Mitchell Advocates fell 5-0 to host Salmon Arm. Solid goalkeeping from Pushor’s Chris Turbett kept his team in the game as Lorne McNeily’s goal in the 21st minute was the only goal of the first half. Second-half goals by Jeff Abbott, Nick Wood and a pair by Dave Howes completed the Salmon Arm offence. Keeper John Damon barely broke a sweat for the shutout.

Parks group hits milestone Morning Star Staff

The North Okanagan Parks and Natural Areas Trust is celebrating its 10th year in operation in 2011. Many people may not be familiar with how a conservation land trust works, but it is a service works on behalf of the

community. A conservation land trust is a non-profit organization that actively works to conserve the ecological integrity of land, either by acquiring it (through cash donations or individual/estate land donations), or by committing to the pro-

tection and stewardship of it through a legal contract. Through this contract, know as a conservation covenant, the protection of that piece of property lasts forever even through changes in ownership. NOPNAT has a board

of volunteers, as well as receiving support from the North Okanagan Naturalists Club and the Land Conservancy. If you have a piece of property that you feel is worth protecting, visit www.nopnat.com, or call Hew Kidston at 250-5428959.

Student test results improve B.C. students are taking the Foundation Skills Assessment in greater numbers and their results show improvement over last year.

Harmonized tax makes sense

B

y the time you read this, most registered voters in B.C. will have received their HST referendum ballot packages. It probably won’t come as a surprise to learn I’ll be voting no. I don’t believe there’s any benefit to going back to the old GST/ PST combination and higher taxes. But the referendum allows British Columbians the chance to make up their own minds. As you take the time to research the two options, I’d like to explain why I will be voting “no, thanks” to returning to the old 12 per cent GST/PST. I believe the harmonized sales tax is good for the North Okanagan. Consider two of the largest and most significant industries in the local economy – agriculture and logging. Despite what you may have heard from

Fight HST and the NDP, both industries are staunch supporters of retaining the 10 per cent HST. Just ask them. The B.C. Agriculture Council and B.C. Cattlemen say farmers benefit greatly from the HST. Eric Foster B.C. Fruit Growers Association president Joe Sardinha has urged B.C. to keep the HST. Why is this? It’s more efficient and cost effective. For example, they are able to recover tax paid on any and all purchases on farm equipment. That may not sound significant to you, but consider all that additional and extra expense on equipment – before you’ve sold a single item and made any profit. Simplicity and being more cost effective aren’t just ways to save money, but put B.C.’s farmers and ranch-

MLA REPORT

ers on a more equal footing with their counterparts in Alberta and provinces with the HST, such as Ontario. The HST affords those in the agriculture industry the chance to invest more into their farms and ranches, modernize and purchase new equipment – and hire more workers. Many of these same arguments for the HST apply equally well for the logging industry.

It’s estimated a harmonized, more efficient tax will save the forestry industry about $140 million per year – about $40 million for forestry and logging, and $100 million for forestry-related manufacturing. The logging industry is arguably even more competitive than agriculture – these are not insignificant savings – and that translates to jobs for forestry and

logging workers. To my mind, those are convincing enough reasons to retain the HST. But this is one of the most significant decisions British Columbians will ever make. I encourage everyone to gather as much information as possible before making their choice. Visit www.ericfostermla.bc.ca

Xerindipity Garden hosting workshop Morning Star Staff

Head over to Polson Park’s Xerindipity Garden Saturday for a free workshop on waterwise gardening. The Regional District of North Okanagan will host a 1 p.m. event showcasing ways to maximize a garden’s productivity while minimizing water bill. “We constantly hear from North Okanagan residents looking for ways to reduce their water consumption,” said Jennifer Miles, water — Miles sustainability coordinator. “There are many techniques and tools that can help put the resident back in control of their water use. One of the best ways is to set up an automatic irrigation system with a timer. It saves both time and money, and ensures your plants are watered even when you’re away from home.” RDNO staff will also be available for questions about the drought management plan that is currently under review.

“There are many techniques that can help put the resident back in control.”

CSRD doesn’t want full focus on Highway 97 BARB BROUWER

ing where the agenda included an invitation to attend the Okanagan Valley Transportation Symposium, one-day workshops taking place July 18-22 and again in September, to develop a unified vision for transportation improvements along highways 97, 97A and 97B. While the board unanimously approved the attendance of Falkland director RenĂŠ Talbot

Black Press

They support improvements to the Highway 97 transportation corridor, but Columbia Shuswap Regional District directors don’t want the Ministry of Transportation to forget about the need to improve the Trans-Canada Highway. The issue arose at the regional district’s June 15 board meet-

MacLeod

and rural Sicamous director Rhona Martin, directors expressed their concerns about the Trans-Canada and directed staff to write a letter to the ministry. “Without a doubt the highway from Salmon Arm east needs to be upgraded,� said Sicamous director Malcolm MacLeod. “There are numerous bridges I find to be very narrow – there have been a number of accidents – these are some of the things that should be replaced.�

MacLeod says he is hopeful four-laning will be continued to the Alberta border, and while wholeheartedly approving the upcoming symposium on the Highway 97 system and CSRD’s invitation to take part in it, he wants the same opportunity to air local concerns. “I think what they do is take a look, they pick the lowest hanging fruit,â€? he says of Ministry of Transportation funding of less difficult terrain.

SPCA warns about dogs in hot vehicles Morning Star Staff

You may love to have your best friend with you at all times, but dogs and cars are not a good mix come summertime. That’s the message from the B.C. SPCA’s Vernon branch as it ramps up efforts to raise awareness about the danger and potentially fatal consequences of leaving a dog inside a hot car. “People think they’re doing their pet a favour by taking them along to run an errand, but the reality is the temperature inside a parked car at this time of year — even one that’s in the shade — Ross — can climb well above 38 Celsius,” said Corinne Ross, branch manager. Dogs can withstand high temperatures for only a very short time — usually just 10 minutes — before suffering irreparable brain damage or death. Every year, SPCA cruelty officers respond to hundreds of complaints about dogs in hot cars around the province. This doesn’t include complaints made to police in areas where the SPCA doesn’t have a local presence. “If you see a dog languishing in a hot car, call your local SPCA or police,” said Ross. “Before the authorities arrive, mem-

bers of the public can help prevent a tragedy by attempting to find the animal’s guardian. If the car is in a mall or grocery store parking lot, for example, ask to have the owner paged over the building’s PA system. If a window on the vehicle is cracked open, try to increase the airflow inside by fanning the pet with a portable fan.” Signs of heatstroke in pets: ■ Exaggerated panting (or the sudden stopping of panting); ■ Rapid or erratic pulse; ■ Salivation; ■ Weakness and muscle tremors; ■ Lack of coordination; ■ Convulsions or vomiting; ■ Collapse. If your dog shows symptoms of heatstroke, you should: ■ Immediately move the animal to a cool, shady place; ■ Wet the dog with cool water; give the dog water. If no water is available let the dog lick ice cream; ■ Fan vigorously to promote evaporation. Do not apply ice, which conNATALIA VIGNOLA / MORNING STAR stricts blood flow; Toby has a dish of water with her during an outing around Vernon. The SPCA is urging residents not to leave ■ Take the dog to a veterinarian. dogs in vehicles during hot weather. Visit spca.bc.ca for more information and a downloadable brochure.

LISA VANDERVELDE/MORNING STAR

Aleah Greenall, far left, Katy Giffen and Abby Sundquist, with Stuart Kopy lying down on the chairs, participate in the Missoula Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre camp at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre Wednesday. Leah Kopy (above, left), and Brady Davidson work on their improvising skills.

(I HO ITSOFFTOWORKFORTHESECAMPERS Missoula Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre is back in town to stage Snow White with local kids KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Brand new passport in hand, Indiana native Eric Doades has never crossed the border before, let alone in a truck filled with props, costumes, and lots of laundry detergent. At least custom officials were kind when he and fellow American Dana Vincent entered Canada from Washington State last weekend. Here to conduct a performing arts camp put on by the Montana-based Missoula Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Theatre, Vernon is the only Canadian stop for the two actor/directors who have been crisscrossing the Pacific Northwest to help children learn all the inner-workings of the theatre. About to stage Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs at the Performing Arts Centre

Saturday, their work is cut out for them since Doades and Vincent just met their cast of kids â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 58 children ages five to 16 â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The day of auditions is usually pretty quiet,â&#x20AC;? said Vincent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They usually want to know what makeup and costumes they will be wearing.â&#x20AC;? By Wednesday, the Missoula leaders were already running through the songs and lines with the kids. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have all of Thursday, Friday and half of Saturday to get the show ready,â&#x20AC;? said Vincent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Somehow it all comes together.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a puzzle getting all the pieces to fit. We havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t had to stop at all, we just keep going,â&#x20AC;? added Doades. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think if we tried this with a group of adults, they would all be lost.â&#x20AC;? The two thespians have had a lot of practise working in the theatre, and now they are improving their skills while working with children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exciting to see the kids, experience a new culture and visit new places,â&#x20AC;? said Vincent, who is a native of San Diego, Calif. and received her theatre degree at Bostonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Emerson College.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really good mix of theatre and education,â&#x20AC;? added Doades who is originally from Washington, Ind. and studied music education at Western Kentucky University and theatre at Oklahoma City University. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It involves everything I like about teaching, without everything I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like, especially all the paperwork.â&#x20AC;? The camp involves a lot of show and tell, role playing and games to get the children comfortable in their roles. And the directors have found their own formula when dealing with fresh, eager faces every time they set up in a new town. Doades tends to work with the older kids, while Vincent takes the younger ones under her wing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I love kids and love to work with kids,â&#x20AC;? said Vincent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was introduced to theatre when I was five. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a huge part of my life and I love to share what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned plus instill the values of the performing arts. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun and projects confidence. We get the kids to work as a group.â&#x20AC;? All that hard work ends up on the stage, and this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staging of Snow White will see the kids playing everything from the evil queen, to a talking mirror to those short

little dudes singing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hi-ho.â&#x20AC;? But donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect the Disney version of the story. For example, the seven dwarfs have different names than the ones the kids are accustomed to; something that is often brought up by the young actors, laughs Vincent, who will play the woodsman in the show. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do take some liberties,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And the kids usually pick up on it.â&#x20AC;? No matter, the buzz is still palpable with the young cast anticipating the day they can finally put on their respective costumes and douse their faces in makeup. It all happens Saturday morning before the show goes on. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everything stays at the theatre; all the props and costumes need to be kept safe until we get to the next town, where we usually have loads of laundry to do,â&#x20AC;? said Vincent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always something new.â&#x20AC;? Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs takes the stage at the Performing Arts Centre Saturday for two performances starting at 3:30 and 5:30 p.m. Tickets for the public are $12 each, and are available at the Ticket Seller box office.

Arts

Garden lends itself to art KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

The colour is the first thing that grabs your attention as you step through the gate into the small pocket of paradise. Orange tiger lilies are offset by bunch grasses and fragrant lavender while a water feature gently trickles into a pond full of koi. Part xeriscape, part English garden, the setting lends itself to art, which is fitting as it will soon be the site of an exhibition featuring four prominent North Okanagan artists. Three of the artists have known each other for years and they have more recently come to know their host, Michael Jell, who has generously loaned his property, located in between Vernon’s Harwood area and BX Ranch Park, for the second annual Art in the Garden, July 16. “Its a quiet, intimate, tranquil garden space,” says Angelika Jaeger, while sipping ice tea and looking at the surroundings. “Let’s hope the weather is good. Last year, it was perfect,” adds Jell. Cherryville artist Gary Whitley joins in the conversation that flits between discussing the weather, the beauty of nature, the business of art and latest projects. As the president of the North Okanagan chapter of the Canadian Federation of Artists (FCA),

Whitley is planning to show a number of his vivid floral paintings at the garden show “for obvious reasons,” as well as some of his representational landscape work. Whitely and Jell recently partook in the Triptych exhibition in Penticton, juried by internationally known and prolific artist Robert Genn, which involved all three FCA chapters in the Okanagan. Out of the 10 artists from the North Okanagan chapter who showed their work, both men took home prize honours along with four other local artists. Jell, who was raised in Zimbabwe, Southern Africa, was also recently named Artist of the Year 2012 by the B.C. Wildlife Federation for his Great Grey Owl painting. His work often features the bounty of wildlife that exists in the Okanagan. The garden show will also feature three dimensional pieces, including hand forged metallic sculptures, designed and built by local blacksmith Doug Alcock. The Commonage-based artist’s work has been exhibited locally and internationally, and includes the public piece in front of the Vernon Performing Arts Centre. His work can also currently be seen at Vernon’s Headbones Gallery in the show Okanagan Eyes, Okanagan Wise, Okanagan-ise.

En Karma

“I’ll have some new work from my western series,” said Alcock, showing one of his latest that features a finely detailed quiver full of arrows complete with a cowboy’s spur and leather belt. “I have some new pieces and some from my artifacts’ series as well.” Vernon collage and mixed media artist Angelika Jaeger, who has been completing her bachelor of fine arts degree at UBC Okanagan, has shown her work in her native Germany as well as all over Canada, and just recently wrapped a solo exhibition at Ashpa Naira Gallery on the west side of Okanagan Lake. “My new work is quite different,” said Jaeger. “It’s still collage work, but in a different medium... it’s sculptural using steel and copper wire.” Jaeger will show some of her “nests” and other artifacts at the garden show, which coincidently takes place the same day as the next Art Mart in the gardens of the Caetani Cultural Centre. “They are located just up the road on Pleasant Valley Road, so people can make a day of it to see some art by local artisans and artists in an idyllic setting,” she said. Art in the Garden happens Saturday, July 16 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 1701-46th Ave. (Look for the signs across from Hunter’s Store.)

Chernobyl that has Optimus Prime and his gang of good Autobots racing against the evil Decepticons to track down an old pal that could make the difference in their age-old war. Shia LaBeouf has said that Dark Of the Moon is his last tour of duty in the Transformers franchise, and after watching him here, the news should be met with an overwhelming shrug. It’s not that LaBeouf doesn’t carry himself well; he runs, romances babes (Megan Fox is replaced in this sequel by Victoria’s Secret model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, which would now make the score, Eye Candy 2: Performing Arts 0) and makes his eyes go really wide with the best of ‘em, it’s just that there isn’t a whole lot more for the character of Sam Witwicky to do here.

The latest music is reviewed every Friday in Street Sounds

Country artist Brad Paisley wears his signature white cowboy hat on the cover of his new CD, This is Country Music.

Arts department at

that alone makes the song. As an instrumentalist, Paisley is contributing to the cause. As a vocalist, he’s melodic and clear; easy on the ears. Remind Me (with Carrie Underwood) is a contender for a single you don’t want to admit liking. It’s a guilty pleasure; perfect for wistful singing on a long drive. Add Old Alabama (featuring Alabama, of course) to that. This is Country Music is a good album that demonstrates Paisley’s command of the slick country genre circa 2011 –– there’s a lot of beer, ol’ red, white and blue, God, redneck girls, cancer, more beer and layoffs –– just keepin’ it real and twangy.

Country Music ashville based megastar, Brad Paisley’s got it all: talent, image, looks. What else is needed? On his eighth album, This is Country Music, Paisley lays it on the table Dean Gordon-Smith with the title and then proceeds to open a grab bag. Paisley is good enough to buck the Nashville music machine and his expressive chops and articulate guitar are all over the 15 songs herein. His Telecaster talks in the grand tradition of Roy Clarke and Glen Campbell and Paisley is the new face of guitar-based slick country music. But unlike Campbell, Paisley doesn’t have any really cool, fringe-type songs. Yeah,

Team work helps living with ALS CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

“It’s not easy to have to ask for help, but I have to, and I thank all the people who help me. They’re wonderful people,” said Gladys Bentlage, who was diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis) two years ago. With the help of her team — Kerry Bokenfohr, physiotherapist; Verginia Van Calsteren, occupational therapist; Michelle Dallyn, rehab assistant; Kristy Patrick, respiratory therapist; Judy Kistner, homecare worker; and other care aides, as well as medical care professionals — Bentlage can live in her own apartment at Carrington Place. Originally from Bathurst, N.B., Bentlage, 69, worked at Canadian Tire for 36 years, retiring as store manager in Langley three years ago, then going back to work in retail after six months because she missed working with people. She also enjoyed golf, reading, embroidery and her computer. Two years ago, she noticed that she was getting out of breath going up stairs and her sister noticed that her voice was getting softer. “My voice just kept getting worse so I went for tests,” she said in a pleasant, wispy whisper. There is no specific test for ALS and diagnosis is made by ruling out other possibilities, and by the doctors’ observations. “He did a few things, looked at my tongue and said, ‘You have ALS.’ I didn’t even know what that was. I asked him how long I had had it and he shrugged and walked away. I was in shock,” said Bentlage. “I was scared when I looked it up but I accepted it. When I was diagnosed I had just retired a second time, moved to Vernon to be near family, bought a new car and condo and was planning some trips. The walking was the worst, I was weak and would trip and fall. What really made me realize it was true was when I was baking bread and had no strength to punch it.” She had an evaluation at G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver where she spent time with a team of specialists which helped determine the equipment and care she would need when she got home. The home team of professionals visits on a regular basis to help and evaluate her changing needs. She also has the help of a dietitian and speech therapist.

CARA BRADY/MORNING STAR

Gladys Bentlage with her daughter, Tina-Marie Bentlage, shares her story about living with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis). The first ALS Walk in Vernon takes place Saturday. The ALS Society of B.C., which fundraises to provide equipment, information and support for people with ALS and their families, has helped with a power tilt chair, a special mattress and bed, and bathroom equipment. Bentlage has also received a speech and head movement controlled computer although she still uses her computer with the mouse pointing out letters on the screen so she can

keep up with friends through e-mail. “The equipment is very expensive but it’s important to helping Gladys stay as independent as possible. My job is to see what she needs, arrange to get it from the ALS Society and help her learn to use it. I don’t know where people with ALS would be without the society,” said Van Calsteren. Bokenfohr has designed an exercise pro-

gram for Bentlage and Dallyn helps her with the exercises regularly. North Okanagan Hospice Society volunteers come to do massage. Patrick checks Bentlage’s oxygen levels so that there will not be a build up of carbon dioxide which would affect the muscles. “It was so hard at first but you take it one day at time and make the best of it. If you’re bawling, you’re not enjoying yourself,” said Bentlage. “The worst is when you can’t blow your nose or pluck your eyebrows or put your earrings in, you just can’t. You have to accept help, otherwise you would go crazy. I just try to enjoy each day. I have the computer, I can still read, I can go downstairs and talk to the ladies and watch soap operas and there are activities here.” Bentlage has visited Hospice House and Noric House, where she might have to move when she needs more care, and has made her funeral arrangements. “Mom was such a wonderful caregiver for me and always cared about other people. Now I’m happy to see her getting help when she needs it. I’m so grateful to the people who help her. Mom is independent and does everything she can. She’s a great role model and a great mother,” said Tina-Marie Bentlage. Bentlage is hoping to be selected for a trial of a new medication for ALS. “At least it’s something. I want to do this to help, if not myself, then other people,” she said. There are currently seven people with ALS in the Vernon area. The first ALS Walk in Vernon takes place Saturday at 10 a.m. in Polson Park. The money raised will go to help people with ALS locally.To register or to make pledges call Nichoel Crawford at 250503-4741 or see www.vernonwalk@alsbc.ca.

ear Annie: I’m 22 years old and recently needed an operation in the only hospital in our area. I am an extremely shy and modest female and would never go to a male doctor except in an emergency. Luckily, I was able to arrange for a female surgeon and an all-female surgery team. However, while I was in the recovery room, a young Kathy Mitchell & Marcy Sugar male nurse — a guy with whom I had gone to high school — came into the room and told me he was there to remove my catheter. I was stunned. I told him there was no way I would allow him to do that. He tried to convince me, saying, “I’m a nurse. It’s OK,” but I wouldn’t back down. He finally found a female nurse after I threatened to sue him if he came any closer. Am I wrong to feel that a young male my age, especially someone I know, should not have access to the most intimate and private parts of my body, especially since removing a catheter is not an emergency? I made a pact with my boyfriend that no male will see me undressed until I marry, and then only my husband. When I told my boyfriend about this nurse, he was ready to knock the guy’s block off. The idea that this nurse believes he has the right to violate me in such a way is keeping me from going back in for a follow-up operation. Do I have the right to forbid a male nurse from attending me? I was told that since female nurses can examine male patients, a male nurse should be able to do the same with females. The anxiety is killing me just thinking about it. What should I do? — Modest in Iowa Dear Modest: Most health professionals have no prurient interest in their patients. A nurse, male or female, who removes a catheter is acting solely in a medical capacity. He was not “violating” you. However, you are entitled to request only female nurses if the hospital can provide them. Please don’t let your anxiety keep you from follow-up treatment. Talk to your doctor about your concerns. Dear Annie: My husband is in the hospital. When I called his daughter in another state, she became upset that I hadn’t phoned as soon as

ANNIE'S MAILBOX

he was admitted instead of waiting 36 hours. I explained that I’d asked her father whether I should call his adult children, but he said he’d rather wait until he knew his diagnosis. She reminded me that the last time he was ill, I had promised to let her know. Frankly, I had forgotten. I was also exhausted and feel my first loyalty is to my spouse. But I apologized. She followed up with a long e-mail detailing her future notification requirements. I’ve been married to her dad for three years. Both of his daughters have been kind and welcoming, and I do not want to create a rift. At the same time, I do not want to go against my husband’s wishes. Please help me keep peace in the family and do what is right for all those I love. — Sleepless in Syosset Dear Syosset: Your stepdaughters worry about their father and don’t want anyone withholding information. It frightens them. Talk to your husband. Ask his permission to keep his girls up-todate in a timely manner. It will reassure them. Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar are longtime editors of the Ann Landers column. Please e-mail your questions to anniesmailbox@comcast.net.

Mary Magdalene: Mark 16:9. Magdela was a little town in a little valley with little caves that riddled the cliff face. We are told she was cured of 7 devils demons. “Out of whom he (Jesus) had cast 7 devils.” Luke 8:2: “certain women which had been healed of evil spirits.” 7 indicating completeness, and demons denoting mental illness. She was apparently completely insane. Would we have chosen one like that to be with us in the Kingdom of God on earth when Christ comes?

Tina Pokorny and Justin Hickling with their two sons, Hunter and Leland. Born and raised in Enderby, the couple is facing extra expenses due to complications with Tina’s pregnancy. Now at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, Tina is on bedrest, with the baby due in September.

14. On June 23, she was released to the care of her mother-in-law, who lives in Langley, provided she was able to get to a hospital quickly. Three days later, she was flown to Royal Columbian, where she’s been ever since. Now almost seven months pregnant, Tina is looking at bedrest for the next two months. “The boys are doing great, but they don’t want to talk about Mommy right now,” said Dave. “She’s definitely in everyone’s prayers.” Donations for the family can be made at the Enderby District Credit Union to the Hickling Fund, account number 9142-1.

When Tina Pokorny discovered she was pregnant with her third child, she was thrilled to be adding to her family. And with two healthy pregnancies before her, she didn’t anticipate any problems. But after she began bleeding, doctors found amniotic fluid in the blood and she was rushed to hospital in Victoria. Now at Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster and on complete bed rest, the Enderby woman is doing what she can to ensure a healthy baby. Meanwhile, her husband, Justin Hickling, 28, is struggling to care for the couple’s young boys, Leland, four, and Hunter, two, while worrying about his wife and son on the way. Justin’s dad, Dave Hickling, is asking for assistance from the community to help cover travel expenses and childcare. “I’m disabled and on a pension and I’m happy to do what I can to help, but Justin really needs help with childcare so he can get to work,” he said. “He’s making ends meet, but because he doesn’t

How to keep your kids safe and drug-free DOUG ROGERS Special to the Morning Star

Research studies show that more teens start using drugs during the summer months than during the rest of the year. The combination of extra free time, boredom, easy access, and lack of supervision greatly increases the risk of drug abuse for young adults. This summer, it is important to stay involved in the lives of your children and set boundaries. As a concerned parent, what can you do to keep your child safe and drug-free during the carefree days of summer? Parents are the most powerful influence

on their kids when it comes to drug use. Here are five tips from TheAntiDrug.com to help parents keep their teens safe, healthy and drug-free: ■ Communicate. Keep communication channels open with your teen. ■ Be Firm in Setting Rules and Consequences. Clearly state to your teens that drugs are not acceptable and that you would be disappointed if they started using drugs. ■ Check In. Ask your teen about their plans, activities and whereabouts. ■ Have Open Dialogue. By engaging teens in an open conversation, parents are given the opportunity to express their

concerns about their teen’s behavior and discuss the risks involved with drug and alcohol use. Parents also need to listen to their children’s concerns! ■ Be Engaged. Get involved with your teen’s summer activities. ■ Be Observant. Monitor changes in your teen’s physical appearance, attitudes, behaviors or other warning signs like new friends or poor grades. ■ Encourage teens to get a summer job or do community service: These activities give teens the opportunity to gain real-world experience and independence, while keeping them away from drugs and alcohol.

Province warned sheriff cuts could hinder courts JEFF NAGEL

houses and the people in them remains our paramount objective.” He said most government ministries remain under pressure

Black Press

The provincial government had advance warning from a senior official several weeks ago that cuts to the number of sheriffs guarding court houses could spark trouble in the justice system. In a May 31 letter to B.C.’s chief justices, copied to the deputy attorney general, assistant deputy minister Rob Wood noted full-time staff levels in the court services branch had already been cut nine per cent since 2008/09. “These fiscal changes have made it progressively more difficult to maintain operational service levels in both court security and court administration,” Wood said. Deeper cuts took effect at the beginning of June and Wood’s letter set out minimum service levels for court registries and sheriffs, including a system of roving sheriffs to spread staff further. Wood’s letter indicated the number of court clerks has also been cut and the ministry would respond by reassigning court registry staff to act as clerks as needed. He cautioned those levels would not be sustainable for very long. Wood also noted it would be up to judges to gauge the security risk and decide if they can operate without a dedicated sheriff using the rover system. “The safety of all court participants is of paramount concern,” he said. “We will do everything we can, in consultation with the judiciary, to ensure the most important matters go forward and that the safety and security of the courts and court users is maintained.” The elimination of the equivalent of 34 full-time deputy sheriffs caused delays in several trials last month when some judges refused to let their trials proceed without a sheriff pres-

to cut costs and streamline processes as a result of health and education spending that has risen faster than government revenues.

Attorney General Barry Penner agreed to reverse cuts to sheriffs after concerns were raised by judges.

“These fiscal changes have made it progressively more difficult to maintain operational service levels.” — Rob Wood ent. By late June, Attorney General Barry Penner – after hearing directly from judges about their security concerns – pledged to reverse the cuts to sheriffs’ hours. But the cut hours have not been permanently restored and are only being scheduled a week at a time so far, said Dean Purdy, spokesman for the union representing sheriffs. “We’re concerned that they’re so keyed into the budgetary side of things they’re going to let the court system slide rather than truly fund the system,” he said. Purdy said two of the most senior managers in the system are currently filling in for sheriffs in Victoria because of the lack of deputy sheriffs. “You can’t do justice on the cheap,” he said, adding the province needs to hire more sheriffs to reverse some

of the loss of more than 100 positions in recent years. The NDP lashed the province for allowing

“chaos” in the courts to continue and failing to find a solution. “It appears that when making this announcement, the Liberals were primarily interested in temporary damage control, not returning security to our courts so they can function again,” NDP Attorney General critic Leonard Krog said. Penner said he doesn’t want the short-

age of sheriffs to result in trial delays and added his ministry is working to find more money to support staffing levels on an ongoing basis. He said the auxiliary and part-time sheriffs whose hours were cut had always been called out as required. “They will be utilized as required,” Penner said. “The safety and security of our court-

A decade on, treaty no panacea Metis with a background in journalism, said he was welcomed on his initial visit and was even invited to attend a Nisga’a Lisims executive meeting. But he said Stevens and other officials “stopped responding” as the project progressed. In his statement, Stevens described the code of conduct for Nisga’a officials and the complaint pro-

cess people can use to hold them accountable for decisions. The president dismissed the “colourful commentary” of a few “key informants” who didn’t expect to be quoted. Quesnel says that despite the slow progress, he remains convinced the Nisga’a treaty is a positive step. Now investors have only one government to deal with, and the

region has electricity, mining and gas development on the drawing board. And there are lessons to be learned by other aboriginal communities, such as tackling dependency and addiction problems before a treaty is signed, and bringing in outside experts to set up businesses. “Mitchell Stevens, when I spoke to him,

Nisga’a Lisims president Mitchell Stevens issued a statement rejecting the report’s findings, citing two factual errors and denying that he had participated. Quesnel, a Quebec

Research found that more people trust the Nisga’a government compared to the old Indian Act regime. But divisions remain, particularly over giving up aboriginal tax exemptions. Quesnel said he met people who have left the Nisga’a villages for nearby Tsimshian communities, before sales Tom Fletcher and income taxes take effect in 2013. According to the study, a culture of dependency that grew up during a century of colonial-style rule remains pervasive. The authors report many of the same problems that plague Indian Act reserves, such as willful damage to housing, accusations of nepotism and failed business investment. “More than one key informant observed that old attitudes and mentalities persist regarding public services,” the report states. “Expectations at the local level that the village government will provide everything are still rampant.” Quesnel said the Nisga’a Nation’s recent move to allow feesimple ownership of municipal-style lots is a key step towards self-sufficiency. But the land title system is still in development and it’s too soon to see results. The study notes that economic conditions in Nisga’a territory have become worse since the

here were high hopes and harsh words in 2000 when the provincial and federal governments signed Canada’s first modern-day treaty with the Nisga’a people of northwestern B.C. The four villages are now governed by the Nisga’a Lisims government, which holds broad authority transferred from the federal and provincial governments. While Canada’s financial support continues to flow, the Nisga’a Nation is nearing the stage where it must begin to collect taxes and become selfsustaining. A new study by the Winnipeg-based Frontier Centre for Public Policy offers a unique look behind the scenes of this remote experiment. Judging by the hostile response of the Nisga’a government to the findings, it may be the last one for some time. Is the Nisga’a Nation ready to support itself? The short answer is no, according to polling data and extensive interviews with “key informants” who are not identified. Co-author Joseph Quesnel told me he interviewed 15 influential people, both supporters and critics of the treaty, since he first visited the region last fall. A larger phone survey by COMPAS

Summer Sale

Activity Horoscope BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL A strong desire for greater gratification could fire up your ambitious aims in the year ahead. Motivation is likely to be all that it takes to spur you to acquire some of the good things the world has to offer.

PUZZLE NO. 203

CANCER (June 21-July 22) If you get involved in some sort of friendly competition with friends, make sure that you don’t take the game too seriously, and be willing to play whatever role is needed. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Unless you schedule your time well, by the end of the day you might find too many duties left undone. Make a good game plan and religiously stick to it. ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203

HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 100626

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Try to use the same discretion in your social and commercial situations that you do in matters that are important to your security. Your instincts will help you do and say all the right things. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) It’s more your tendency to be a giving and considerate person than to step out of character and display stinginess toward your companions. You’ll feel better about yourself if you do the right thing. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Regardless of how good you think your ideas are, avoid orchestrating grand, disruptive plans, especially if things are functioning smoothly as is. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Guard against a tendency to misread the intentions of those with whom you are associating. People could say and mean one thing, but you’ll interpret it differently. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You have a tendency at times to let pride be your Achilles’ heel, causing you to look for a scapegoat when things don’t go your way. That’s not the way to make you look good. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) It isn’t that you won’t know the right course of action to follow, it’s rather that you’ll want to do something that you know you shouldn’t. Don’t trip over your own stubbornness.

PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) When you get the chance, be sure to reciprocate to pals who have gone out of their way to be helpful. A failure to do so when they know you had the opportunity will leave a bad impression.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Regardless of how badly you might like to do something for a friend, if you’re not sure that you can, it is better to let him or her know that up front rather than disappoint your pal later on. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You’ll get more accomplished and like yourself much better if you do what needs doing without being asked or told. Be in charge of yourself rather than having others boss you. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) It’s fine and dandy that you know how to take charge and give orders, but before others will follow your lead, you must first show them that you’re willing to do what you ask of them.

Newspapers reach educated, highincome earners better than other media, which makes advertising in the newspaper an awfully smart choice. NEWSPAPERS. THE MOST TRUSTED MEDIUM.

HORMONES Q: I am having problems with sleep, sex drive, hot flashes and weight gain. What can I do?

We will never walk on the moon.

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.

Sex and the Kitty Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Henri Bergson, a renowned French philosopher who died in 1941, said, “Action on the move creates its own route; creates to a very great extent the conditions under which it is to be fulfilled, and thus baffles all calculation.” When we are a declarer, our actions on the move create the tricks won and lost en route to the contract. And we hope that calculating that route is not baffling. Occasionally, though, an unusual path is required -- as in this deal. South is in four spades. West leads the heart ace, then shifts to the club king. How should declarer step? West, after one textbook takeout double, might have

passed over four spades, but he chose to hope that his side would either defeat four spades or have a cheap sacrifice at the five-level. East, with such a balanced hand, passed with a mental shrug of the shoulders. Expecting all to be easy, South won with dummy’s club ace and played a spade to his ace. When West discarded, suddenly the contract had to fail. Declarer had to lose one spade, two hearts and one diamond. At trick three, South should have played a spade to his jack, taking a strangelooking finesse despite missing only three trumps. Here, the finesse wins and declarer takes seven spades,

two diamonds and one club. But even if West could win with the queen and continue with, say, the club queen, South would ruff, cash the spade ace, and lead his heart jack. Dummy’s queen would be established for a diamond discard, with dummy’s spade eight as the entry card.

A single unspayed cat can produce 470,000 offspring in just seven years.
