The goal is to have a new facility in place by 2015 when the gallery hosts the Okanagan Print Triennial. “We are pushing forward,” said Grant. Candy is confident a combined museum and art gallery can benefit the community’s economy. “It will become a destination site for visitors. We will be able to put on exhibits we couldn’t pull together before,” he said. Candy also says that cultural amenities help draw new residents and investors to a community, and meet the desire of residents to be creative. “A facility could have a bigger impact on our educational programming,” he said. “Culture is a huge part of our community. It’s like air and water — we need it.”

News Goldstein takes on the continent ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Picture yourself trying to ride a bicycle from Vernon to Vancouver, over the Coquihalla Highway, using only the white lines on the road as a guide. You canâ€™t lift your head up on the bike to see whatâ€™s coming ahead of you because your neck muscles are throbbing. And when the white lines end abruptly, you end up in a ditch. And you ride this distance every day, for 11 days, in 40 degree C heat because youâ€™re in a race. And itâ€™s a race you want to win so bad, you ride on. The hell with the pain in the neck. Oh, and you sleep an hour, maybe two, each night. Now you get an idea of what Vernon professional cyclist Leah Goldstein went through to win one of the most gruelling races on the planet. Goldstein, 42, a former commando in the Israeli army, a woman used to sleep deprivation and who says she doesnâ€™t sleep a lot on a regular basis, won the womenâ€™s solo division of the Race Across America â€“ RAAM. Itâ€™s one of the most respected and longest running endurance sports events in the world. Individuals and teams gathered in San Diego in June to compete in a 3,000mile cycle race across America to Annapolis, Md., home of the U.S. Navy. â€œThe experience was awesome,â€? said Goldstein,. â€œItâ€™s hard. More people successfully climb Mt. Everest than finish RAAM. People scared me big time for the race, saying the failure rate is quite high.â€? Only 15 women in the 29 previous years have completed RAAM. Goldstein, an ultra racer who retired from competitive road racing in 2010 after she was hit by a car during a race and broke both her arms, became the 16th. The former world bantamweight kickboxing and national junior taekwondo champion turned to ultra racing, completing three long distance events to qualify for RAAM, which is 3,000 miles across 12 states and climbs over 170,000-vertical-feet. Solo racers, such as Goldstein, have a maximum of 12 days to complete the race. Backed by a seven-member support crew â€“ Team Mad Dog â€“ which included Lori Moger and Janessa Neufeld, of BreakAway Fitness, where Goldstein conducts workshops, and mechanic Sean Cameron, of Olympia Cycle and Ski, Goldstein set out on June 15 from Oceanside Pier in San Diego.

Vernonâ€™s Leah Goldstein (above) competes in a stretch of the Race Across America cycling event, while (below) she speaks to the crowd after winning the womenâ€™s solo division of the gruelling 3,000-mile event.
For the first few days, Goldstein had no issues with her legs or her conditioning. Sheâ€™d stay on the bike for 23 hours, the support crew monitoring her, planning meals, encouraging her to get some sleep, planning support crew shifts. â€œI went down (to sleep) after two nights and slept an hour,â€? said Goldstein. â€œYou hallucinate. I didnâ€™t know if the animals I was seeing were real or not. There were, like, real pigs but I was seeing things. I didnâ€™t know if
they were real or not. When youâ€™re so sleep deprived, all you know is to pedal and go forward.â€? It was on day four that Goldsteinâ€™s neck muscles betrayed her. â€œIt was really hard,â€? she said. â€œMy legs wanted to go but I couldnâ€™t see the road. I stopped more than I wanted to, to rest the neck for a couple of minutes. I was riding according to the white line on the highway. The crew was telling me â€˜OK, youâ€™re going to go left, youâ€™re going to go right.â€™ It was like riding a bike with your eyes closed. I rode into the ditch a couple of times because the white lines all of a sudden ended.â€? It was Moger who came up with the idea to shave the back of Goldsteinâ€™s head, add some hair extensions and attach the extensions to the back of Goldsteinâ€™s heart rate monitor to help keep her neck up. Goldsteinâ€™s sore neck wasnâ€™t the only thing getting to her. She entered the race not only to win, but to set a womenâ€™s record. She won her division and now holds the 11-day record (she finished RAAM in 11 days) but thatâ€™s not good enough for the elite, ultra athlete. â€œIâ€™m not satisfied with that kind of win,â€? she said. â€œI want to win it in 10 days, I want a record no one can touch. Iâ€™m happy I won the race but itâ€™s the way I won the race that doesnâ€™t satisfy me. Normally when I finish a
race I canâ€™t walk and I felt a little too good when I crossed that finish line.â€? Goldstein, who had to have her neck held up by a race director when she was being interviewed after her victory, gave tons of credit to her support crew, which included some other mechanics and doctors. â€œWithout them, you canâ€™t do anything,â€? said Goldstein. â€œSuccess is based on how organized your crew is and mine was fantastic.â€? As soon as she gets back to Vernon, Goldstein will hop back on her bike. â€œI still have a couple of ultra races I want to do and Iâ€™m coming back (to RAAM) for sure,â€? she said. â€œIâ€™m going to break that record.â€?

Ceremony launches Highway 97 project CHRIS LAW Black Press
A long-anticipated highway project is underway. The politicians responsible for securing funding for the Highway 97 realignment between Oyama and Winfield met Friday afternoon at an official groundbreaking ceremony. “With increased capacity, mobility, and reliability comes a more fundamental improvement: safety,” said MLA Norm Letnick. “Visitors and commuters alike will appreciate a much faster and safer drive.” The realignment will tie into Highway 97 at Evans Road in Oyama and at Oceola Road in Winfield. Letnick went on to give credit to his political predecessors, Al Horning and John Weisbeck who first
brought the deadly stretch of highway to the attention of the Ministry of Transportation. Lake Country Mayor James Baker says the relocation of the highway is also beneficial to the protection of the Wood Lake fishery. The cost of the highway is $77.7 million, with the province paying for $44.3 million and the federal government covering the remainder. Windley Contracting has the project contract, with a completion date set for the summer of 2013. Upon completion, the existing highway along Wood Lake will be transferred from the ministry to the District of Lake Country. Preliminary planning discussions around the municipal council table suggest the road will be turned into a recreation corridor.

East Hill project raises concern RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A proposed development has some people concerned about the integrity of Vernon’s East Hill. The city will hold a public hearing Monday on an application to rezone 2602 25th Ave. from large lot residential to four-plex housing. The plan is for two, four-unit buildings on the 0.3-hectare property. “It will set a precedent for East Hill,” said neighbour James Nicholls. “It’s a unique place in Vernon and East Hill is about older character homes with large lots. If this goes through, others with large lots may put in apartment blocks.” Besides increasing the density of the neighbourhood, Nicholls is concerned the proposed development could lead to traffic problems. “The drawings suggest that the land owner will release a large section of his property to the city for a possible 27th Street expansion in the future which has left little room for parking for the eight units,” he said. “There are lots of places to build in Vernon and I’m not sure why it has to be there.” The strata develop-

This property on 25th Avenue is the subject of a public hearing on rezoning at Vernon city hall Monday. ment calls for townhouses and rancherstyle dwellings. “They would be high-end units and they will actually appreciate the values of surrounding properties,” said Bob Beckley, who owns and lives on the site. He added the units will be geared towards people over the age of 55 and they won’t be rentals. “One of the townhouses will be for ourselves.” Beckley hopes the project will attract people who want to live close to downtown. “It’s in conjunction
with what the city is proposing downtown. All of the services are right here,” he said. Each unit will have a double garage while there will also be visitor parking. East Hill’s architectural styles will be incorporated into the designs. “He (Beckley) wants to make it as nice as possible,” said Mark Budgen, a local architect involved in the project. City staff is recommending council support the rezoning application. However, staff wants a number of items addressed, includ-
ing road dedication to widen 27th Street, clarification of the parking design and elevation drawings to show the potential impact of the proposed development on the neighbourhood. “As well, the north side of the proposed buildings, facing 25th Avenue, should have windows, articulation and, if possible, one or more front doors, to better match the existing residential streetscape,” said Brooke Marshall, the city’s environmental planner, in a report. The public hearing begins at 5:30 p.m. at Vernon city hall.

Cherryville residence searched Morning Star Staff
At the request of an absentee landlord residing in Alberta, RCMP entered a vacant residence in the 100 block of Hammond Road in Cherryville and discovered the remnants of a large marijuana grow operation. No plants were located but all the associated grow equipment was still on site. “At any given time, this detachment has mul-
tiple marijuana grow investigations on the go,” said Lumby RCMP Cpl. Henry Proce. “We encourage whatever tips or information the public can provide to initiate or further an investigation. If you have information don’t hesitate to give us a call. “The information you provide may be the last piece of the puzzle that enables us to obtain a search warrant, seize the drugs and make arrests.”
Mushrooms, ecstasy and cocaine confiscated Morning Star Staff
Police found an assortment of drugs in a Vernon house Wednesday. Just before 11 p.m., officers, searched an apartment in the 3800 block of 28A Street. “Police seized quantities of psilocybin mushrooms and cocaine as well as what is believed to be amounts of methylenedioxymethamphetamine (ecstasy) and marijuana,” said Gord Molendyk, Gord Molendyk RCMP spokesperson. “Items associated with trafficking in the drug trade were also located in a bedroom along with the drugs.” A 31-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman are expected to appear in court at a later date to face drug-related charges. “A point of concern to our investigators is the fact a youth lives at the residence as well,” said
Molendyk. “The youth was not home at the time and is currently with other family members.”

aping TV shows has become a habit for me; I never watch anything live anymore. I use the word “taping,” but of course I use a DVR, and I should say I “record” TV shows. Compared to the bad old days (10 years ago), when I had to program my VCR to the time and the day I wanted to record a show, the DVR makes it so simple. Click on the program you want to record and, presto chango, you’re set. No mess, no fuss. And with the simple press of a button, the DVR jumps ahead 30 seconds so I no longer have to sit through commercials for medicines that will cure diseases I don’t have. Yet. By skipping commercials, I can watch the eveJim Mullen ning news in 22 minutes — usually less because I also skip through the heartwarming stories at the end of each broadcast. I’m not against heartwarming stories, but that’s not why I’m watching the news. If I wanted to watch heartwarming, uplifting, human-interest stories, I would watch a show called “Heartwarming, Uplifting, HumanInterest Stories,” not one called “the Evening News.” I used to think I would spend the time I saved watching commercials to clean the house or write the great American novel, but it turns out I really use it to watch more TV. I can zip through So You Think You Can Dance and The Voice in half the time it would take to watch them live. When the DVR came along, I put my VCR in the broom closet, thinking that someday I’d hook it up again and watch all the hand-labeled videotapes I’d never gotten around to watching. It has never happened. It sits in there with the old CD player that iPods made obsolete and the boxes of printer cables and connectors that wi-fi made obsolete and the giant speakers that earbuds and desktop

speakers made obsolete. When I add up all the money spent on electronics that are too old to use but not old enough to sell as antiques, I want to weep. There are boxes of 156KB floppy disks in there and expensive computer backup devices that can hold 20MB of data, or about 10 times less than the tiny card in my digital camera. That camera will end up in the broom closet of broken dreams soon, along with several first-generation cell phones because they are so hopelessly oldfashioned and out of date. It would cost me money to sell them on eBay. When I finally broke down and bought a big flat-screen TV, I was shocked by how heavy and awkward the old one was. It was heavier than an air conditioner and twice as clunky. It was, after all, 10 years old. How am I ever going to get rid of all this junk? I should ask the producers of Hoarders to come visit my house. I would promise to pretend to be very upset when they volunteered to clean out the place for me. Now that I’m all modern, miniature and up to date, I figured all my technological problems were a thing of the past. Then I read in the paper that my little DVR uses 10 percent more electricity than a modern refrigerator. It’s an energy hog that’s on 24 hours a day, even though it’s recording only two or three hours a day. You can’t really turn it off without unplugging it. Even though it doesn’t make ice cubes or keep my vegetables crisp, it is adding about $12 a month to my electric bill. It turns out that my TV is also on when I’m not watching it, and so is my computer. I went back and looked at the recordings of my evening news shows on TV. None of them mentioned it. I guess they zip through things they don’t want to hear about, just like I do. Jim Mullen’s latest book, Now in Paperback!, is now in paperback. You can reach him at jimmullenbooks.com.
It may be annoying, like the insect it’s named for, but at least it’s no longer discriminatory. Earlier this year, Salmon Arm city staff installed a gadget in the city’s downtown core, known as a mosquito device, which emits a highfrequency tone that is irritating to listeners and can produce headaches. At the time, the frequency was set at a level which could only be heard by people under 25 years of age, clearly making the assumption that it was primarily young people vandalizing downtown property. This is because the ability to hear high frequencies usually deteriorates with age, so older folk would be immune to the annoying effect. It was hoped this annoying tone would help curb damage to both public and private property by discouraging people from being in the downtown area at late hours. The gadget does have a feeling of Big Brother, as it is an irritant to law-abiding citizens and criminals alike. Taxpayers and business owners, however, do not want to constantly be on the hook for cleaning up the work of vandals. Salmon Arm council’s decision to continue using the mosquito device, but with the gadget’s frequency set to a level that is audible and disturbing to people of all ages, is a much better choice. Instead of tarring a specific group of society with the brush, it paints us all as potential criminals. It may be a sad comment on society, but at least we’re all being treated as equals. ---Salmon Arm Observer

Sports complex is needed
e: letter to the editor from Wayne Bennett June 6 regarding the proposed sports complex. I sometimes feel that many seniors (and I am one) in our community are against supporting anything that benefits the youth and younger families of this community. Having been on the committee to promote the Wesbild Centre, we were confronted many, many times by seniors saying, "We don't need any more sports facilities here," or, "Why should I support an arena when I don't have any family here to use it?" My thought on that statement is that maybe you have a family residing in another city and making use of the facilities offered there. So seniors there are paying taxes to support these facilities that your family can be enjoying. What goes around comes around. With the way our population of youngTAX GRAB Let's look at some facts about the HST. 1. Prior to the last election, the Liberals promised in writing that they would not impose the HST. 2. A person making $40 an hour pays the same HST as a person making the minimum wage. A minimum wage earner, after paying 12 per cent on $10 an hour has $8.80 left, whereas a person making $40 an hour, after paying 12 per cent, has $36.80 left. Tells us clearly who suffers under this tax grab. 3. The Liberal government tells us the HST is creating jobs. Our jobless rate has gone from 7.4 per cent to 8.8 per cent in one year under the HST. 4. The B.C. government's independent panel found out the B.C. government is earning $820 million extra every year and that amount probably will go even higher in the years to come. 5. None of the HST revenue goes to health care, education or social programs. For a person like myself with a Grade 8 education to figure out the above facts on HST clearly

After all, what could be better than not only improving one's health but, and at the same time, improving the environment upon which everyone's health ultimately depends. And, local governments everywhere are to be congratulated on trying to improve roadways so that cyclists can co-exist with the motoring public safely. And, speaking of cyclist safety (including my own), I find it simply amazing that a cyclist can approach Vernon on Highway 97 from either the south or the north travelling on a bike lane that simply disappears at the army camp on the south and at London Drugs on the north, forcing the cyclist to ride in the curb lane which is bordered by a sidewalk. Now, perhaps I am simply unaware of a cyclists bypass of this unsafe, congested roadway. But let me make myself clear:

To cycle through this busy traffic laden area without a bike lane is to advertise one's death wish! Especially if one is cycling south and has to climb the hill going past the hospital. So, come on, Vernon elected officials. Let's address this glaring inadequacy and safety issue for the cycling public and create a clearly marked, safe cycle route through Vernon that connects to Highway 97 both north and south. Robert (Bob) Hagman PRISON UNWANTED You probably know that the Village of Lumby has applied to become the site of the large criminal remand centre and provincial prison to be constructed somewhere in the Okanagan over the next couple of years. Lumby council continues to pursue acquiring this prison despite a couple of opinion polls held in late April, in which, although Lumby voted 56 per cent to do so, the adjacent surrounding RDNO Area D voted 66 per cent against it, for a combined community opinion of 56 per cent against.
grant deductions from my property taxes. Doesn't that compensate us? And then we can reverse the situation and remind you that younger families are paying taxes on venues that we seniors can enjoy and we don't hear many of them complaining. He also mentions the fact that he lives near the college, the proposed site for the sports complex and that parking and extra traffic in the area will be an issue. I am quite certain that parking and other issues will be addressed before the sod is turned, should that be the chosen site. While we seniors don't like to accept change and want to keep things as they are, we need to accept that we cannot stop progress, nor can we stop our city from growing and having the need to provide these facilities to provide a healthy lifestyle in our community. Beryl Nerling
Lumby's slogan is Simply the Best. I propose a change to this as follows: Democracy's process we trust To keep our communities just. But a fair vote said no; Yet the jail's still a go. So Lumby is Simply the Bust. Russ Collins SUPPORT TEACHERS That was a truly wonderful letter Kelly Winston wrote about Mr. Tyler's accusations against the BCTF. While Mr. Winston was at it, he should have told him to compare the teachers so-called holidays to what the post office people get. Plus, all the money they get paid and they were on strike for more money and for more holidays. Comparing jobs, I think the post office people are far too spoiled. If Mr. Tyler wanted to criticize anyone, it should have been them, not the teachers. I think teachers deserve all they get and more. I know I wouldn't like their job. It would be too demanding for me in my opinion and I was a

Genetically modified plants under exam RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
There may be a review of genetically modified organisms in the North Okanagan. The Electoral Area Advisory Committee is asking the Re g i o n a l D i s t r i c t of North Okanagan to form an ad hoc committee to investiRick Fairbairn gate genetically modified seeds and plants. “It’s quite a controversial topic and we should give it due consideration,” said Rick Fairbairn, EAAC chairperson. The issue has been promoted by Huguette Allen, an environmental
advocate. Allen has presented a sample resolution that urges the RDNO to strongly discourage the release into the environment, use or sale of live, self-reproducing, genetically engineered organisms within the area until the long-term consequences of such products and organisms are fully understood. Fairbairn supports a review moving ahead. “There is concern about GMOs and the potential affect on the population,” he said. “People have concerns about what they are eating.” Fairbairn admits, though, that there is some uncertainty as to whether RDNO and local municipalities have the authority to place restrictions on GMOs. “It’s proven difficult in other areas to deal with it,” he said.

Vote for Hassen starts Monday Morning Star Staff
Get those mouse clicking fingers ready. Monday is the day to help the City of Armstrong become the B.C. winner of the 2011 Kraft Celebration Tour. Residents have 24 hours, from 9 a.m. Monday to 9 a.m. Tuesday, to vote for Armstrong online as many times as they want at www.kraftcelebrationtour.ca. Armstrong is up against the Kootenay community of Creston. The winning community gets $25,000 towards facility upgrades, and TSN will broadcast its evening Sportscentre broadcast on a night in August from the winning town. Armstrong will use the money towards upgrades for the aging Hassen Arena at the IPE fairgrounds. Creston has earmarked the cash for fixing up its community centre. Bridge Street in Armstrong is being turned into a one-day celebration area Monday. The street beside Armstrong city hall and the Armstrong-Spallumcheen Chamber of Commerce will be closed Monday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and transformed into the Hassen Arena Celebration Zone. Computer banks will be set up for people to vote, and Askew’s Foods is hosting a free barbecue along Bridge Street from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Volunteers are required to help work the computer bank. If you’re interested in donating some time and clicking a mouse to help Armstrong win – you can vote as many times as you like – contact the chamber at 250-546-8155.
The celebration zone will move Monday night to the Nor-Val Sports Centre, where the Armstrong Shamrocks host the Kamloops Venom in game one of their Thompson-Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League semifinal series at 7:30 p.m. The computer bank will move to Nor-Val as will the barbecue, starting at around 7 p.m. and will continue throughout the game. Armstrong Mayor Chris Pieper has wagered 10 cases of Okanagan Spring beer with Creston Mayor Ron Toyota, who offered up 10 cases of Kokanee beer, brewed at the Columbia Brewing Company in Creston, if Armstrong wins the contest. The winner between Armstrong and Creston will be announced on Tuesday during TSN Sportscentre’s evening show.

Legion grill gets lifted ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
It’s pretty hard to hold weekly barbecues when your grill gets stolen. The Royal Canadian Legion branch in Vernon experienced that scenario when its Napoleon barbecue, used for holding weekly cook-outs on the patio at its 29th Street facility, was stolen, possibly on Canada Day. “We used it on July 1, shut it down at around 6:30 p.m., and discovered at 10 the next morning that it was gone,” said legion branch president Doug Weaving. The grill, valued at around $1,400, had been used a couple of times for weekly barbecues and at an open house at the legion the weekend before the theft. The local branch has since replaced the barbecue with a slightly less expensive model, but the bill takes a big chunk out of the legion’s budget. “It’s disappointing,” said Weaving of the theft. “It’s a pretty big hit for us. A lot of people don’t realize that funds from our poppy fund and funds we receive from gaming can’t be used for maintenance of the Legion. “We had to pay for it out of general funds and, like a lot of other legions in the country, we are not doing very well.” The local branch is well-known for giving back to the community, donating cash to a number of organizations and groups.’ Anybody with any information on the theft is asked to call the Vernon RCMP at 250-545-7171, Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477, or leave a tip on the Crime Stoppers’ website, www.nokscrimestoppers.com.

Air quality group ignored
RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
A valley-wide approach to air quality won’t involve the North Okanagan and that has some politicians fuming. A majority of the Regional District of North Okanagan board decided Wednesday not to join in the Okanagan-Similkameen Airshed Coalition. “The airshed we share with everyone and we should be at the table with the other regional districts,” said director Doug Dirk. Similar views came from director Rick Fairbairn. “Air quality is something we enjoy throughout the Okanagan,” he said. However, other board mermbers don’t believe the regional district would benefit from the coalition, which focuses on seeking government grants, planning, a wood stove exchange, farm chipping, anti-idling signs and dust control. “I see it as another level of government. We
“I see it as another level of government.” — Dee Wejr don’t need it,” said director Dee Wejr. Wejr insists local municipalities and the regional district are taking steps to reduce air pollution. “We have burning bylaws and dust control,” she said, adding that atmospheric conditions work against air quality initiatives. “There’s not much we can do about the Okanagan having an inversion that holds everything down.” RDNO ended its air quality function in 2010 after a number of jurisdictions dropped out, largely because of cost.

Rodeo duo ready for Wyoming KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
From L’il Britches to B.C. High School to Nationals in Wyoming. It’s been quite a ride for teenage rodeo sensations Justine Plecas and Joanna Fennell. The pair of 17-year-olds are with their horses almost daily in preparation for the National High School Rodeo Championships, July 17-25, in Gillette, Wyo. Plecas, who just graduated from VSS, is also competing in the Canadians, Aug. 10-12, in Virden, Man. Plecas rides Missy in barrell racing and pole bending, and qualified for nationals with a top-four finish in pole bending on the B.C. High School circuit this season. “I ran some 20s (seconds) which is pretty fast and I ended up second overall,” said Plecas. “I’ve been rodeoing for eight years. I’m a first-generation cow girl.” Hoping to hit the pro rodeo schedule next summer after a year of Bachelor of Science studies at University of Alberta in Edmonton, Plecas gave up hoops in Grade 9 to focus on horses. She plans to be a veterinarian. On Missy, who lives on Lavington turf, Plecas said: “She’s a bit crazy but she’s totally an athlete. She runs to win every time. She knows her job and she’s well conditioned.” Born and raised in Vernon, Plecas helps pay for her trips by working as a cashier at Superstore. She was in the High PHOTOS SUBMITTED Performance program at VSS, and gives teacher Clif Acob Vernon’s Joanna Fennell (above) and Justine Plecas, both 17, high props for helping her balance school and rodeos.

Tavares headlines charity Block Party at Wesbild Morning Star Staff
What started out as a block party has blossomed into a full-blown community event at Wesbild Centre. When Vernon’s Lisa Seltzer won the nation-wide Source for Sports John Tavares Block Party contest, it was originally going to be a simple meet-andgreet, followed by a ball hockey game. Since then, it has evolved into a charity event for Special Olympics Vernon,
with Tavares, the first overall pick of the New York Islanders in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, greeting fans, playing some shinny and maybe even flipping a few burgers, all for a good cause. The event, featuring a silent auction, draw prizes and a charity barbecue, goes Wednesday, 4 to 6 p.m., at Wesbild. Auction/draw items include four signed Tavares pro sticks, two signed Tavares Islander jerseys and a pair of
CCM Crazy Light skates (valued at $700). All proceeds will support local Special Olympics athletes. Tavares’ charity of choice is Special Olympics, so the ball hockey event has grown to include the local senior and junior hockey teams, Seltzer’s Pee Wee hockey team (Vernon 5-Star Awards Bulldogs), a handful of Vernon Vipers and a few other local figures. “This thing has evolved to a point

where Tavares has really shown a willingness to support our Special Olympic athletes,” said Mike Melbourne, owner of Vernon’s Sun Valley Source for Sports. “We’re trying to make this a fun event and be upbeat with it,” added Melbourne, noting the event is receiving great volunteer support. Melbourne thanked sponsors Grillers Meats & Eats, Sweet Caroline’s Bakery, Coopers Foods and Nor-Val Rentals.

Raiders roll past Shamrocks Morning Star Staff
The Armstrong Shamrocks dropped their third straight one-goal game Friday night at Hassen Memorial Arena, bowing 8-7 to the Kelowna Raiders in Okanagan X-treme Lacrosse League play. The Raiders took the early lead on goals by Kyle MacLennan and Pho Heng, with Armstrong sniper Steve Clark replying for the Rocks. The first period was delayed for quite some time after a Raider was checked into the Shamrocks’ Shaun Strohm, who was taken to hospital and diagnosed with a broken tibia, requiring surgery. With the same 2-1 scoreline heading into the second period, Armstrong, now 5-6, came out firing, solving Kelowna keeper Graham Cousins five times. Stu Williamson and Clark, each with two, and Shaun Koenig, on a breakaway, were the scorers. Braden Renner and Luke Bailey responded for the 6-5 Raiders, who trailed 6-4 at the
second intermission. The Raiders opened the third-period scoring right off the faceoff. Deadly on draws, Jacob Illichmann fed Victor Wiens a quick pass to beat Armstrong netminder Chad Pieper, setting the stage for later goals by MacLennan, Heng and Renner. Braydon Sanders provided Armstrong’s goal in the third. The Shamrocks visit the Vernon Tigers Friday night at Wesbild Centre. Meanwile, the Tigers parlayed a four-goal performance from Rob Short into a 9-5 win over the host Kamloops Rattlers Friday night at Memorial Arena. Short, with a first-period hat trick, and Kirk Krause, with a single, got Vernon (5-5) off to an excellent road start. AJ Lockwood and Mark Jurista answered for Kamloops (5-5) in the first. Krause, Short and Tyler Plante kept the Cats’ offence clicking in the second frame, while Lee Black tallied once for

Dakota Campen of the North Okanagan Legends eyes the goal as he drives past Reyce Weir of the Coquitlam Adanacs in B.C. Pee Wee B Lacrosse Championship play Friday morning at Wesbild Centre.
The North Okanagan’s three main arenas were a hive of activity Friday with 28 teams competing in four divisions at the B.C. Pee Wee Box Lacrosse Championships. Tournament host North Okanagan Legends have three teams in action at Wesbild Centre, Civic Arena and NorVal Sports Centre in Armstrong. The A2 squad fell 9-4 to Richmond in its Friday opener, and 13-4 to Nanaimo later in the day. “We weren’t pumped up enough at the start and they got the first goal and we fell behind,” said Legends’ Jaxson Cummings, 12, who stripped a Richmond runner and hustled full-
court to record his team’s third goal. “It’s really challenging because you really want to win (at home).” Added A2 Legends’ head coach Harold Mann: “It’s three weeks between games here, so we were showing a little bit of rust today. Every team that’s here has earned its way to provincials, and rightfully so. Very talented kids.” In other Friday action, the C Legends got off to a solid start, icing Juan de Fuca 3-1 before falling 3-2 to Abbotsford. In the B division, North Okanagan bowed 8-1 to Coquitlam and 10-5 to North Shore. Medal and placement games go today at Wesbild and Civic.
Tiremen draw Kickers Morning Star Staff
Vernon Kal Tire salvaged a 1-1 draw with the Kelowna Kickers in Okanagan Oldtimers 50+ Soccer League action Thursday night at Rutland Sports Fields. Striker Matt McGraw gave the Kickers the lead in the 17th minute when he took a feed from Reed Freeman and beat keeper Gordie Campbell with a hard 20-yard blast. The Tiremen (5-6-2) equalized late in the first half when right winger Ted Sheehan unleashed a 30-yard drive after a feed by Dave Dawson. Kickers’ keeper Marty Bunce and defender Willie Babcock collided and the ball bounced free and over the line. The Kickers struck a couple of

crossbars in the second half and were awarded a penalty shot with nine minutes remaining after defender Sid Fulljames used a slide tackle near the goal line. Campbell went up high and tipped veteran Fred Molzahn’s shot over the bar. Harry Adam, Grant Badgero and Rob Parkin were solid on the Kal Tire back line. In other action, Tony Munoz scored twice, including once on a penalty shot, as Penticton United shut down the Vernon Stars 4-0 at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School in West Kelowna. Striker/midfielder Al Bensmiller and defender Bob Oldfield shared the Red Robin Man of the Match for the Stars, who dipped to 8-4-1.

Vernon Chick Kickers put on a scoring clinic in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division play Thursday night at Marshall Field #4. Their victims – Vernon Square Liquor Store North Okanagan United, who fell 6-1 under stormy skies. Jenny Garnett, with her first career hat trick, led the 9-2-1 Kicker onslaught. Bridget Grant connected on a fabulous strike from 30 yards out, and Kelly Chalen and Shauna Stenqest rounded out the scoring with singles. Colline Johnson delivered some brilliant setups, while the defensive line of Nadine Krywonos, Wendy Magnus, Marilyn Vanderdeen and Wendy Martens was impeccable. Keeper Dawn Tucker was solid. Heeson Domay was the Vernon Lodge Player of the Match. “As bad as it sounds, not the most horrible game known to man. We still put together some nice passes,” said NOU’s Shelly Johnston. Mel Jacobs, with NOU’s lone goal, and Lena Dean attacked the Kicker net, earning several breakaways as United dipped to 4-7-1. In a Thursday night Masters Division makeup game, Goplen Drillers grounded Seasons Sistas 5-2. Playing in poor field conditions and stormy conditions, the Sistas had plenty of scoring chances in the first half, but were unable to score. Deb Whitling

Jason Reich of Vernon United goes up on his toes to block a ball ahead of a Penticton Pinnacles player in B.C. Under 14 Boys Soccer Championship action Thursday at Kings Park in Penticton. Vernon iced the Pinnacles 4-3, tying the game with five minutes left and then winning on the last play of game off a corner. Vernon earned a 1-1 draw against Prince George Friday, playing most of the second half on the attack. They ended round-robin play Saturday against Terrace. The goldmedal game is today.
belted a shot off the crossbar from outside the 18. With none of their regular keepers available, Andy Zubot took the first shift in net. Shortly after the Drillers opened the scoring, the Sistas’ Kim Sylvester equalized after taking a beautiful through ball from Helene Clarke and blasting it over the Drilllers’ keeper. Second half was a bit scrambly for the Sistas. Defenders Giselle Duquette and Becky Birbilis each took a shift in net while Drillers got a few more goals. Sylvester pocketed her second goal, racing through the defence and beating the keeper for a tap-in. Newcomer Lisa Geary created many opportunities for the front line with her through balls and strong cross field passes from midfield.

After firing a tournament-low 7-under par 65 Thursday, Vernon’s Conner Kozak followed up with another low round 5-under 67 to finish third at the B.C. Junior Men’s Golf Championships Friday at Rossland-Trail Country Club. The Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club member finished with 75-75-65-67 for a 6-under 282 total, eight strokes back of defending champion Adam Svensson of Surrey (6768-71-68). Kozak, a Seaton grad, was one stroke back of runner-up Kevin Kwon of Pitt Meadows (67-72-74-68). He dropped his third eagle of the tourney with a 12-foot putt on the final hole, the 514-yrd par 5 on No. 18, Conner Kozak securing the last spot on Team B.C. for the Canadian Juniors, Aug. 1-5 at Surrey’s Morgan Creek. Spall’s Brady Stead finished tied for 58th at 22-over (73-73-80-84). Both Kozak and Stead will join locals Brad Jones, Justin Wurz and David Szestopalow at the B.C.

A blueprint for future growth in the North Okanagan is moving ahead. Regional District of North Okanagan directors are sending the proposed regional growth plan to member jurisdictions for feedback. “This document is important for all of our communities,” said BX-Silver Star director Mike Macnabb. The strategy – which is the culmination of a process that began in 2009 – provides a long-term vision to guide development and growth over the next 20 years. Among the issues it considers are rural lifestyles, agriculture, economic development, transportation, housing and energy. On Wednesday, the public had an opportunity to provide input on the plan. “How will we know if this is a success? Are there timelines set out with the process?” said Harold Sellers, with the North Okanagan Naturalists Club and one of three people to
speak during the hearing. “There needs to be a report card process implemented. That way we can report how we’ve done (with strategy initiatives). It would be very valuable for the public.” Sellers also questioned if the strategy’s language has sufficient

tion of groundwater. Protection of the surface water resource is as equally important,” he said. Once input is provided by the member jurisdictions, the RDNO board of directors will consider any possible changes to the growth strategy and then adoption.

North Okanagan communities are being asked to make public services more accessible to the disabled. Independent Living Vernon wants the Regional District of North Okanagan to make it easier for people with disabilities to use recreational facilities and transit. “These are citizens with various concerns,” said Laura Hockman, executive director. “Our goal is to be proactive and not reactive.” ILV is asking that attendants of people with various disabilities receive free admission to Greater Vernon’s pool and weight room when accompanying a person with a disability. Presently, there is a 75 per cent discount for the disabled to use these facilities but they must pay for their attendant to get in. “They really have to plan their visits to the pool. When you only receive $906 a month, there’s not a lot left for recreation,” said Hockman of the average disability pension that must also cover rent, food and utilities. She added that attendants are vital to ensure the safety and dignity of the disabled. ILV also wants the regional district to allow disabled residents to use their B.C. Government transit pass on the HandyDart service. RDNO staff will prepare a report looking into ILV’s requests and it will cover Greater Vernon,

Orchardists stay informed with meetings The Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative got together for an informal breakfast and discussion forum on Thursday morning at a Coldstream orchard. These monthly meetings are a way for the fruit-growing community and co-operative to keep up to date on issues facing the industry. “We’re in sort of a transition right now,” said Jim Elliot, a grower in Oyama. “The economy, the grower base, the Canadian dollar, the merging of co-ops — everything is changing.” Yet in the past 70 years since the co-operative has been in operation, many of the horticultural and economic problems remain the
same. But these monthly meetings are about more than just discussing problems. “It’s to keep the lines of communication open,” said Gary Schieck, CEO of Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative. “I suppose there is a social aspect as well.” About 40 members of the co-operative showed up at 8 a.m. for a pancake and sausage breakfast hosted by Gayle Krahn, of the Okanagan Tree Fruit Co-operative field service. Just like every other year the weather is always a topic of discussion, but contrary to popular belief the delayed beginning of summer is not neccessarily a cause for concern. “We’re about a

market. “For marketing purposes we’d like it to be as early as possible,” says Schieck about the harvest. But horticulturally speaking it may be better for some products. “We have strong looking fruit this year,” said Malcolm Mitchell,
Familiar name returns to resort Morning Star Staff
A familiar face is back at Silver Star Mountain Resort. Vernon’s Guy Paulsen will start Monday as the resort’s nordic manager. “Contributing towards building a strong and vibrant nordic business at Silver Star is a great opportunity and I am excited to get started,” he said. As a graduate of the ski resort operations and management program at Selkirk College in 1983, Paulsen started as a ski pro at Silver Star. He then became ski school director and finished his tenure as general manager in 2000. Guy Paulsen During a hiatus from the ski industry, Paulsen was the co-developer of an agri-tourism business and a draftsman and project manager with an an architectural firm. Recently, Paulsen has found time in the winter months to return to teaching both alpine and nordic skiing. Paulsen has increased his level of involvement with the Canadian Association of Nordic Instructors where he holds level three certification. He currently acts as a Pacific committee member and national technical committee advisor. “We are excited by Guy’s enthusiasm and are confident that he will assist Silver Star in continuing to
offer the superior nordic product we are famous for as well as grow our profile in the nordic community,” said said Michael Sherwood, resort general manager. Paulsen’s first task will be to take over control of the early-season cross-country camps. The camps run from Nov. 21 to Dec. 4.

The general outlook amongst the attendees was fairly positive, discussing how the industry’s troubles have gotten better in some ways over the last several years. “The support from the Canadian consumer has gotten stronger,” said Elliot. For the past five years he has noticed the trend moving towards buying local with fads like the 100-Mile Diet makeing an impact. “It’s the consumers that are really driving that.”

Guide supports seniors
TEACHERS ON TOUR
VICTORIA - B.C. businesses now have access to a comprehensive guide that provides information on how to create a business environment that is safe and comfortable for seniors. Creating an Age-friendly Business in B.C. is a collaborative release between the Ministry of Health and the BC Chamber of Commerce, designed to help new and prospective business owners ensure their businesses are age-friendly. It includes information on how businesses can provide an environment of safety, comfort, visibility and respect for older customers. The guide also includes examples of best practices from existing businesses and an assessment tool to help business operators determine if their business is age-friendly and learn how to make improvements. A number of B.C. communities have already taken action to make their communities age-friendly. Examples of age-friendly community changes include widening sidewalks, installing benches, maximizing green space, or making programs and services more accessible to the older population. The B.C. Seniors’ Guide can be accessed at: www.gov.bc.ca/seniors/guide.

Shaw hooks up with Shuswap cable firm To say things have been busy is an understatement since the transfer of ownership of Sun Country Cablevision to Shaw Communications on June 30. Hearing of the transaction but lacking any notification from the company, hundreds of customers from the Shuswap, Enderby and Armstrong have been attempting to contact the Sun Country office in Salmon Arm for information. Many are being met with a nearconstant busy signal. “I guess the main message is that there will be no interruption of service for any of our customers,” says Chris Kucharski, vicepresident of communications for Shaw. “We have had some difficulty with our phone capacity, but we are working to have that fixed right away. Very shortly, people can expect letters in the
mail welcoming them to the Shaw family and giving them more information about how they can make payments, new account numbers and numbers to call if they have questions.” Kucharski says some communications to clients may have been disrupted by the postal strike. Customers can also expect a phone call in the next few weeks to speak with a Shaw representative about their service and options. The office on Harbourfront Drive in Salmon Arm remains open, the only noticeable difference being the staff are now sporting Shaw Communications logos on their clothes. Kucharski says all 12 of Sun Country’s frontline customer staff and service technicians have joined Shaw. “We have not let anyone go,” Kucharski said, adding, “I know that before this deal was complete, Sun Country had made the
decision to cut back on their administrative and management positions.” Terms of the sale are not being disclosed. Sun Country began operations in 1984 and has expanded to provide television, phone and Internet service to its customers. “We are very pleased to join forces with Shaw,” said Michael Hall, managing director of Sun Country in a press release. “Shaw has a reputation of providing exceptional and innovative products and services to their customers.” Kucharski says while customers throughout the Salmon Arm, Enderby and Armstrong regions will not see immediate changes, there will be a transition period as the Sun Country systems are connected to the Shaw network.

The painting began as a way for Greta Rus to deal with pain after a car accident. â€œSometimes the spirit moves you. I bought cheap paper and water colours and started painting flowers,â€? she said. She started taking classes at the Canadian Mental Health Centre last fall. â€œI learned so much â€” techniques, how to look at stuff, how to mix colours and choose brushes and paper. And I really liked the teacher. When I paint, Iâ€™m in a different world and I focus â€” Greta Rus on what I am doing and forget everything else. I have a lot of peace, which is very helpful to me; it has helped my mental situation,â€? she said. Her first painting in the class, Tulip Delight, was selected to be on the posters and invitations for the Awakening the Spirit Art Show and Sale celebrating the creative talents of people living with mental illnesses like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder and schizophrenia. â€œItâ€™s very exciting to have my work in the show. Iâ€™m just a beginner and everything is new to me and I want to try all mediums. Iâ€™m just grateful that I had the opportunity to meet the people at CMHA and I want to take more classes,â€? said Rus. She will have four pieces in the show which will feature more than 50 paintings in a variety of mediums from 20 artists â€” professional artists, self-taught artists and those who have attended CMHA art classes. â€œOne in five people will have a mental illness during their lives.

Despite their disappointment that TRH The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are unable to accept an invitation to join them for tea on July 17, Lumby area seniors will nonetheless be lifting a cuppa to wish the newlyweds a long and happy life together. The tea, hosted by the volunteers of the Lumby Thrift Store is being held to honour the pioneers and seniors of the Village of Lumby, a scenic hamlet situated in British Columbia’s North Okanagan. It was hoped that the Duke and Duchess’ itinerary might find them in B.C. and allow for a short visit to the community. But despite the absence of royalty, organizers of the event expect it will be a

“royally” good time for all in attendance. Among the teas and savouries available at the event will be a tea custom blended for the occasion by Tea Desire of Vernon. The aptly named “Duchess of Cambridge” is a traditional English Breakfast tea combined with ingredients found in the Lumby area. For more information, contact Jean at the Thrift Store at 778-473-3003 or 250-547-6424.

Dental care is totally outside of the Canada Health Act which leaves many lowincome people with little or no means to get dental care. “I hope this gets used as a reference by people who want to change or inform policy. I don’t know of any other research on the program in the province.” Melanson still requires a number of people to interview.

ummertime can be smelly, in the nicest of ways. The smell of fresh-mowed grass, the mock orange flowers, sun tan lotion, the barbecue. There are certain scents that we associate with the hot summer days which I am grateful are here. Smell might be the under-rated sense yet is so important and can provide such pleasure, and save our lives, such as the scent of leaking gas. Well I suppose discomfort as well now with so many people with allergies. But who is allergic to the smell of barbecue? Hmm, in the evenings walking along the street at dinner time you can just enjoy the waft of barbecue smells drifting along going right to my brain and triggering a desire for some meat! Chicken, fish, veggie burgers, something cooked on a grill soaked with some tantalizing sauce. I have found that my darling’s cooking skills do exist and are great when it comes to outdoor cooking — they are just limited when he walks inside the house. Must be that cooking out in the open that brings out the flipper in a fella.

I love the feeling of bliss at the end of a summer’s day where you have really enjoyed yourself and then can relax into the evening, having sunlight into the later hours, perhaps a breeze, debriefing the day, relishing the moments. I lived in southern California for a couple of years and it was a great time with an extended summer and yet I missed our distinct Canadian seasons.

Arts Colin James has a new gig EDITOR: KRISTIN FRONEMAN
A familiar voice is hitting the airwaves and the local stage this week, and we’re not just talking about John Fogerty KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff
Colin James is known for being a mean guitar slinger with powerful pipes who has been bending the blues with rock and R&B for the last two decades. But lately he has been tuned into a whole new medium. Used to having his songs played over the airwaves, the Regina-born, longtime Vancouver resident is now on them. James is following in the footsteps of fellow musicians Randy Bachman, Jann Arden and Rich Terfry (aka Buck 65) who have turned to hosting their own radio shows on the CBC. His show, Behind the Beat, debuted on CBC Radio 2 Thursday night, a week before he takes the stage at Vernon’s MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park, opening for the legendary John Fogerty. “Over the years I have guest hosted on Iceberg and Sirius, and I enjoyed it. I’ve also enjoyed doing radio interviews over the years with the likes of (the late Peter) Gzowski and Vicky Gabereau. This was a great way for me to try something different,” he said. Not unlike putting a greatest hits package together –– something James has done twice in his career, most recently this past spring –– the radio show is all about planning out what to play, how long to play it and how it fits into a theme. “It’s harder than it looks. There’s actually a lot of paperwork,” he said. “I have to pick 12 to 13 songs to play in an hour and finding something thematic in that space is near impossible.” Unlike fellow guitarist, the late, great Jeff Healey, who was a ‘30s and ‘40s jazz aficionado with a giant record collection, James doesn’t own 20,000 blues albums, instead his collection is a little more diverse, and a tad smaller. For his first show, Celtic Heart, James highlighted music from the British Isles. Upcoming shows includes women guitarists, unsung sidemen, and soul crooners. “We have nine different themes that cover all kinds of ground, from the Black Keys to Adele, Ray LaMontagne and others,” he said, adding his personal favourites are artists as
Colin James returns to Vernon Thursday to open for legendary rocker John Fogerty at the MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park. diverse as Bob Dylan, Taj Mahal, The Sex Pistols, The Clash, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss. “Everyone expects me to just like the blues,” he said. “I like all kinds of music and the show reflects that.” Known for playing as a rock-blues artist, James has delved in acoustic roots and blues –– his last performance in Vernon was an acoustic set with fellow musician Craig Northey of Odds fame –– as well as R&B with his Little Big Band. His greatest hits collections –– the first one was released in ‘95 –– have reflected all angles of his career. Recently resigned with EMI, the record company released James’ Take It From The Top: The Best Of album earlier this year. The album featured such hits as Just Came
Back and Why’d You Lie, along with two new songs recorded with legendary producer Bob Rock (Bon Jovi, The Tragically Hip, Metallica, Michael Bublé). “The hardest part has been trying to remember what I did,” laughed James about going through his songbook for the greatest hits package. “It’s hard to pick what I perceive are people’s favourites... It depends on their personal experience with the songs.” James has more recently found the time to write some new songs, collaborating with the likes of Ron Sexsmith, Gordie Johnson of Big Sugar fame and Tom Wilson, and says he is planning on a new album to be out before Christmas. “It depends on how quick I can get it arranged,” said the busy artist. “My first thing has been trying to get
these radio shows done.” With performances at the Montreal Jazz Festival this summer, James is also looking forward to playing on the same stage as Fogerty, both here in Vernon as well as in Calgary. “I’ve never met him,” said James. “He has a really iconic voice and his songs are those I’ve heard all my life. I don’t know a lot about him, besides what I’ve heard on the radio, but I respect the guy’s style.” James and Fogerty will take the outdoor stage at the MotoPlex Speedway and Event Park in Vernon, Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available at all Ticketmaster outlets, online at ticketmaster.ca or charge by phone 1-855985-5000. Ticket prices are $55, $125 and $150 plus applicable service charges. The Motoplex Speedway and Event Park is located 10 minutes north on Highway 97.

MARCIA BELEY One of the “secret” ingredients for a long, healthy life is more of a psychological one. It is how meaningful and manageable you feel your life is. Retirees often face a void after a lifetime of work. Getting up in the morning with a plan for your day is an important part of this secret. Other secrets include not smoking, drinking alcohol moderately and daily physical activity. Photoaging is the premature aging of the skin caused by repeated exposure to sunlight. Signs of photoaging are brownish “liver” spots on the face, hands, chest and shoulders, leathery, sagging skin, wrinkles around the eyes and mouth which make people look older than they really are. Sun moderately and responsibly. The majority of people who quit smoking successfully do it cold turkey. If you do decide to do it this way, share this goal with everyone who knows you. It will add stimulus to your decision to quit and your friends’ encouragement and support will help you succeed. There is research in progress on an ultra-long-acting insulin which will work the same way as daily insulin but has to be given only three times weekly. This insulin is called degludec and is being tested on Type II diabetics in clinical trials. Whether you are wondering about a new drug that is coming on the market or an old one that has been around a while, you can depend on our pharmacists for good information.

his lack of education will mean permanent unemployment, it’s off to community college, where Larry signs up for a speech course, taught by the beautifulyet-hopelessly cranky Mercedes Tainot (Julia Roberts). Mrs. Tainot has problems of her own; her husband, author of a series of cheesy sci-fi novels (Bryan Cranston), is spending less and less time during the day pounding out alien adventures, opting to devote more hours to surfing bikini babes on the internet. While her relationship crumbles on the
home front, her star pupil could never really be considered a “third party.” Larry simply emerges as a life preserver for Mercedes. Every teacher needs to know they’re reaching and inspiring someone in a sea of blank faces, and for Mrs. Tainot, Larry is that guy. And, not to give away any big swerves, he becomes so much more. Aside from George Takei’s cameo as a deliciously dour economics
instructor, Larry Crowne isn’t drenched in outrageous wit. Rather, it’s a warm and very light offering in what’s becoming an increasingly loud and in-your-face summer season. Again, it’s not for every taste. For me, however, it was a very quiet, very welcome and, in a welcome turn, a very encouraging escape. The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

Shore hits these shores Morning Star Staff
Those who can’t make it to the Calgary Stampede this week may want to check out one of the Alberta city’s up-and-coming country/folk/ roots artists when he comes to these parts. Acclaimed singer/songwriter J.R. (Jarred) Shore is currently on his western Canada summer tour, and is visiting juke-joints and concert halls, including Ashton Creek’s Lorenzo’s Café Saturday. This is the multi-instrumentalist and vocalist’s first tour since he topped Edmonton’s University of Alberta radio charts in 2010. Last year was a banner year for Shore. Besides having his sophomore album, Talkin’ on a Bus, proclaimed the No. 3 recording of 2010 on CKUA Alberta radio, he won the Calgary Folk Festival songwriting competition for the unprecedented third time and was a featured performer at the festival. He also won the Rhyme n’ Lyric songwriting competition at Pincher Creek, Alberta’s cowboy gathering, and his single, A Tale of Two Yankees, was added into rotation at Mix 97.7 radio in Calgary. A master of his craft, Shore is currently creating the follow-up to Talkin’ On A Bus. “J.R. Shore is one the premier

His detailed and clever story sketches coupled with his superior vocals and outstanding arrangements combine for a listening experience that reminds one of the rooted mother lode that The Band’s Robbie Robertson and the Grateful Dead’s Robert Hunter drew their inspiration from,” said Peter North, with CKUA Radio Network Shore will perform both his new music and previously unrecorded gems at Lorenzo’s Saturday at 8 p.m. Call 250-838-6700 to reserve.

Program fills skills gap It’s estimated that by 2019, over three-quarters of all jobs will require some post-secondary education. To give low-skilled employees a chance to move up and fill these jobs, B.C.’s new $3-million Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program will help local businesses and non-profit organizations train current staff to better meet the demands of a changing labour market. The pilot program is designed to help low-skilled employees who lack post-secondary training work towards a degree or other credentials, gain new skills to improve productivity, take on new responsibilities and advance their careers. The program targets four high-growth sectors where the demand for skilled workers over the next decade will be strong: transportation and warehousing, manufacturing, health care and social assistance, and professional, scientific and technical services. This program focuses on businesses or nonprofit organizations with less than 100 employees. Through the pilot, up to $1,500 per employee or $7,500 per employer is available to pay for tuition fees and purchase training services, books, manuals and other study materials. The program is expected to serve at least 1,200 employees around the province. This program is one of many funded through the Canada-B.C. Labour Market Agreement, designed to help meet the current and future labour demands of our economy. Learn more by visiting the Targeted Skills Shortage Pilot Program website.
Province encourages hiring youth Youth Skills B.C. is offering a new program which provides B.C. employers with a $2,000 hiring incentive to hire eligible youth. An employer may hire up to three employees under this program. The program, funded by the Ministry of Regional Economic and Skills Development, has been designed to be easy-touse for employers and employees. To qualify, the potential employee must be between the ages of 15 and 29, must not be currently receiving EI and must not have received EI within the past 36 months or 60 months for a parental claim, must not be a full-time student or returning to school, must be a resident of B.C. and legally entitled to work in Canada, and must not be participating in any other government funded program. Potential employers must have been in business for a minimum of one year and must be in good standing with WCB. To learn more about the program, which is available until March 2012, visit http://www.bowmanemployment.com/ysbc/.
A doe looks at a new add-on deer fence on a residential property designed to keep deer out at a reasonable cost.
Stop deer in their tracks JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff
It’s cheap, it’s practically invisible, and it actually keeps the deer out. Fifteen thousand feet of add-on deer fencing has already been sold, and it’s proven to be 99 per cent effective. “Deer are really destructive,” said Duane Derouin, sales representative for the addon deer fence manufactured by H&G Metal Works. “They eat shrubbery, gardens, whatever, and cause hundreds, even thousands of dollars worth of damage.” Derouin met a homeowner whose pool lining was eaten by a deer and had to be replaced. It is a problem many Vernonites are far too familiar with, and until now there has been no easy solution. Deerstop is an add-on deer fence that goes on top of an already existing metal or wood fence. It consists of three lines of nylon yellow filament, which forms a 30-inch vertical extention over the existing fence.
Inventor of the patent-pending add-on deer fence, Hans Wuggenig, says that there are two things that set this product apart from the other deer-stopping solutions. First, the add-on fence costs a fraction of what people pay for high-post or chainlink fencing. And secondly, it’s virtually invisible. “There should be no complaints from the neighbors,” said Derouin. “It’s really not obtrusive.” The yellow lining creates a visual barrier that deer can see quite clearly, as yellow is one of the colours their vision performs best in. Yet the human eye tends to look right past it. The cost will be a big selling point as well says Derouin. A chain link fence for a normal sized yard can run into the four figures, whereas the add-on deer fence is $1.50 per foot. Also, the simplicity of the product makes it a do-it-youself project for those inclined to do so. “We can come and install it, or people can do it themselves if
they like,” said Wuggenig. All you need is a hammer, a utility knife or some scissors, and a few hours. The fence takes on average one hour per 200 linear feet. The deer problem can be a frustrating situation, says Derouin, but the weatherresistant add-on deer fence is a practical solution that repels deer without harming them. Wuggenig invented the product three years ago and then put it through two years of testing to get it ready for consumers. They have officially been installing fences since the fall, and have gotten some very good feedback. “The saddest thing is that some people have actually stopped growing gardens because the deer just keep eating them,” said Derouin. “There was one customer who said she had been growing for two years and had never actually seen her flowers. The deer would eat the buds before they had a chance to bloom every time.”

Claudia Gohl (right) and her daughter Ulrike started Liberty House Watch five years ago.
There's a lot to think about when going away and one concern is always finding someone to take care of things at home. Claudia Gohl and her daughter Ulrike started Liberty House Watch after assisting friends and neighbours, and this year they celebrate the fifth anniversary of the business. "Our business is built on reliability and quick resolution of any situation that might arise in our customers' homes. We have encountered leaking water pipes, false alarms, broken heaters, and many more potential home disasters. These could have amounted to
large damages in the house without insurance coverage," said Claudia. The business has grown to include security checks of all aspects of the property, watering plants, picking up mail and newspapers, caring for small indoor pets, paying bills on the owners' behalf, arranging for yard and pool maintenance, putting out the garbage, light snow removal, and basic grocery shopping before the owners' return. Services are personalized to clients' needs. A comprehensive record of inspection, including digital photos, is maintained. Liberty House Watch serves Vernon and area for times ranging from a few days to several months.

CHAMBER NEWS Tate Bengtson the long-term relationship? You walked away from that last networking event without scoring a single business card. Did you waste your time? If your only goal was an immediate customer, then yes, you did; you invested in something that has a poor chance of achieving your goal. Invest elsewhere or revise your goal. Networking is about cultivating relationships that pay off over the long term. Much like a road trip, take pleasure in the journey and you will arrive at your destination enriched. Are you following up? You hit it off with a potential new colleague at last night’s networking event. New project ideas flowed fast and furious. The next day, you sat by the telephone awaiting the promised call and... nothing. Did you misread the conversation? Probably not. Typically, a call or email to initiate an actionable next step will carry the momentum forward. Are your referrals self-identifying? When you network, you expand the number of people who refer customers to your business, and vice
versa. When you refer a customer to another business, your chance of getting the favour returned increases. Of course, the other business needs to know that a referral occurred! It is vital that you ask a referred customer to mention your role in the referral process. Customers will mention the fact that they were referred less than five per cent of the time if not specifically asked to do so. That figure rises to over 70 per cent if politely asked.

hambers of commerce are recognized as providers of first-rate networking events. As membership-driven business organizations, a chamber naturally possesses a network of high value potential relationships.

ALASKA RAILROAD PHOTO
A great way to check out the mountain peaks and wildlife is by riding the rails on the Alaska Railroad-Coastal Classic:.
A wilderness excursion CHRIS MCBEATH Special To The Morning Star
ALASKA - Barely one per cent of visitors to Denali National Park make it this far into central Alaska. Most stop at the Eielson Visitor Center, take pictures of Mount McKinley, then turn back. But with a few extra hours, you can become one of the rarefied few and find yourself at an early 1900s pioneer cabin at the end of the dirt ‘road’. Literally. Next stop? Siberia — 500 miles to the east. Clamber up Eagle Point nearby, and you start to comprehend the impossibility of getting there, at least by land. The wilderness stretches to infinity in all directions and underscores the notion that Alaska, in all its glory, is almost too big for the imagination. Whether it’s calving glaciers, grizzlies plunging into salmon-filled waters, moose hidden in marshy thickets, or Dall sheep clinging to the vertical side of a mountain, these iconic images barely touch the magnificence of the place. But at least the Alaska Railroad will let you try. Other than bush-pilot taxi service, the historic railroad runs through the heart of the state as Alaska’s main transit system. As North America’s last flag-down train service, the Alaska Railroad remains the lifeline to many self-sufficient homesteaders who live within trudging distance of the rails; it’s not uncommon for the train to stop in the middle of nowhere to drop off supplies at the side of the line, particularly in mid winter when homes are virtually snowbound. From start to finish, the railroad runs through country that is a full-on, sensory experience. The almost 500-mile run from Seward in the south to Fairbanks up north takes about 17 hours, plus an overnight stop in Anchorage to change trains, but even then, the extravagance of views is best savoured when the trip is taken in parts. Only then can you take time to smell the Labrador tea on the wind, feel the crisp air cut through the sunshine, and collapse onto a pillow of brush tundra filled with wild blueberries.

A popular activity for tourists is to have their photo taken in front of the Iditarod Mile Zero sign in Seward. Allow a month for your visit although when time is tight, these four regions will still get the wonder of Alaska into your bones in half that time. Any extra days could include traditional towns like Talkeetna, a trip to the Arctic Circle, or
the hinterlands surrounding Denali’s Back Country Lodge — and the authentic, mythical treasures of Fannie Quigley’s cabin.

Seeing is believing in Alaska Continued from previous page Anchorage-Whittier: Stay in Anchorage as base-camp and take a day trip to Whittier. The train goes through one of North America’s longest tunnels, and beside Turnagain Arm where bore tides change water levels by as much as 30 feet. Pass by marshlands created by earthquakes, glacial valleys, and terncovered mountains. In Whittier, hop aboard the Klondike Express for an up close and personal cruise to the edge of no less than 26-glaciers. Expect to see whales, porpoises and seals floating on chunks of freshly-calved ice. Seward-Kenai Fjords: Unlike many towns on the Inside Passage cruise ship routes, Seward remains unspoiled by visitor invasions. As gateway to Kenai Fjords National Park, it offers fabulous ecoadventures for the entire

Denali National Park is located almost at the geographic centre of Alaska. It includes Mt. McKinley. family as well as Alaska’s only public aquarium, the very impressive Alaska SeaLife Center. Have your picture taken at the Mile Zero sign of the famous Iditarod Sled Dog Race, and watch for playful sea otters within yards of the shoreline. Fairbanks: In the last decade, this town has become an urban metropolis complete with quality museum, a geophysical institute that studies the aurora borealis, and the world’s northernmost botanical gardens.
Sitting atop a plateau, Fairbanks’ temperatures can swing 165 degrees through the year, from as low as -57F degrees to +108F degrees. So pack accordingly! Fly up to the Arctic Circle and visit an Inuit village – crossing over the Alaska Pipeline makes for an extraordinary sight.
Denali National Park: Located almost at Alaska’s geographic centre, Denali’s geological make-up is diverse and intriguing. Watch for enormous glacial erratics, boulders the sizes of houses, scattered like lost peas across moonscape terrain, expanses of boreal forest (the largest in the
world), and Alaska’s crowning jewel, Mt. McKinley. When measured from base to summit, it is the tallest mountain on earth – 6,000 feet higher than Everest which climbs further only because it rises from a more elevated plateau. Stay at the Denali Backcountry Lodge in late August and you’ll witness fall transform vistas into gold, red and shimmering yellow just as if an unseen artist were painting a canvas before your eyes. It happens that quickly. But as with so many things Alaskan, seeing really is believing. Chris McBeath is with Travel Writers’ Tales, an independent travel article syndicate.

The economic impact for the airport, and it’s associated businesses on site accounted directly for 1,400 of those jobs, generating $70 million in wages and benefits. Some 83 per cent of the jobs at the airport are full-time positions. “The report shows the airport is a significant economic player,” said YLW director Sam Samaddar. Unlike many other major airports in Canada, the Kelowna airport is owned by the city. It is currently the 10th busiest in the country and last year saw just under 1.4 million passengers pass through its terminal. Samaddar noted that while the airport is technically a city department, it remains financially self-supporting and does not rely on taxpayer money to operate. Currently it is embarking on a multi-phase 10-year expansion plan, with the immediate emphasis on the next five years as it hopes

The report, the first time an overall economic impact of the airport has been measured, shows the facility not only stands on its own and generates an significant economic output, it also helps other industries here particularly trade and tourism.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) In your own quiet way, you could have a strong influence over someone with whom you are close. You might be the one who is able to steer him or her in a more positive direction. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You could be unusually lucky in having everything go your way, so why not focus your efforts on something new that has caught your fancy lately? If you don’t try, you’ll never know. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Even if this isn’t a workday for you, you might still be able to make some extra money taking an educated gamble on something financial. It’s what you know that’ll make you a winner. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Concern yourself with things that could have a favorable effect on your future, rather than concentrating merely on the immediate. It’s a good time to plan for what you want. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) You could be invited to take part in something new that another has going for him or herself. If you know what’s being offered, you won’t look a gift horse in the mouth. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) A couple of friends whom you’ve been closely involved with lately are grateful for the way you’ve treated them, and may have something very nice in mind for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You’re in a very good achievement cycle, so engage yourself in something that can make
you a winner. Know that you can attain anything to which you set your mind. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Because conditions are exceptionally favorable for you, you should be able to successfully advance a particularly important personal interest. At least give it a try. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Don’t get upset over some change of plans triggered by shifting conditions that might occur today, because you’ll tend to benefit from them. Ride the tide all the way. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) As long as you don’t split hairs over trivialities, you and all the other parties involved should benefit from some kind of verbal agreement into which you enter. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If you understand that free rides aren’t being given away and you are prepared to work hard for something you want badly, your potential for getting it is pretty good.

CITY OF ARMSTRONG STAGE 1 WATERING RESTRICTIONS Moderately Confused
Bridge by Phillip Alder Richard M. DeVos, the owner of the Orlando Magic basketball team, said, “Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A word of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.” This week’s deals have been tough -- except for someone used to working everything out at trick one before playing from the dummy. Many players would go down in today’s deal, complain about bad luck, and not even realize that they had erred. South is in four spades. West leads the heart queen. What is the right line of play? North responded with a
transfer bid. South jumped to four spades to show a maximum with at least fourcard spade support. There seem to be at most three losers: two diamonds and one club. But if South takes the ﬁrst trick, he should go down with this layout. The key is to allow West to win trick one, trading a club loser for a heart loser and keeping East off play so that he cannot lead the diamond queen. Suppose West continues hearts. Declarer wins with his ace, draws two rounds of trumps, cashes the heart king (discarding a club from the board), takes dummy’s club king and his club ace, ruffs his last club on the board, and leads a trump to West.
What can he do? West is endplayed, forced either to lead away from the diamond ace or to concede a ruff-and-sluff (declarer trumps in the dummy and discards a diamond from his hand). If you found the right play, smile unashamedly.
Armstrong residents and businesses should take note that the following Stage 1 watering restrictions are now in effect year round: • Above-ground watering – watering is permitted for even numbered addresses on even days and odd numbered addresses on odd days during the hours of 6:00 am to 10:00 am and 7:00 pm to midnight only. • Automatic in-ground watering systems – watering is permitted for even numbered addresses on even days and odd numbered addresses on odd days between the hours of midnight and 5:00 am only. For more information on allowable watering including newly established lawns, the City’s updated Water Use and Conservation Bylaw is posted on the front page of the City’s website: www.cityofarmstrong.bc.ca.

Laura Winifred Mary Scott
was born on April 12th, 1921 in Edmonton, Alberta and passed away peacefully on June 17th, 2011 in Vernon, B.C. at the age of 90 years. Laura will be lovingly remembered by her three children; Norma (Steve) Schaffer of Salmon Arm, B.C., Win Burge of Vernon, B.C. and Andy Scott of Jade City, B.C., her grandchildren; Christine (Bryan) Desnoyer and Michael (Hillary) Burge, her great-grandchildren; Olivia, Abigail and Tobias Burge, her sister; Iris Cousineau of Kelowna, B.C. as well as numerous extended family members and friends. Laura was preceded in death by her husband; Andrew in 1992. Laura lived most of her life in Vancouver, moving to Vernon in her later years to be close to her family. Mom will be remembered with love for her courage and quiet faith. Her life was not always easy but she rarely complained; she adapted and continued to “carry on”. As long as she was able, her hands were busy with knitting, crocheting and crafts. Her favorite game was Scrabble, and many an afternoon was spent over the board with a cup of tea in hand. Cremation preceded a Celebration of Laura’s Life which will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel on Tuesday, July 12th, 2011 at 2:00 P.M. A Reception will follow in the Tea Room at Bethel Funeral Chapel. Laura will be interred beside her husband in Vancouver, B.C. at a later date.
