Minister non-committal on beds at VJH RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Health Minister Michael de Jong insists resolving overcrowding at Vernon Jubilee Hospital is a priority but there’s no timeline for new beds. The ministry continues to review options to reduce capacity, including possibly opening acute care beds in two shelled-in floors in the new tower. “The number one priority is that patients in Vernon and the surrounding area receive the highest quality care possible. We understand there are pressures,” de Jong told The Morning Star. VJH is funded for 148 acute care beds but on average, there are 165 patients daily. As a result,

“We have to find the money to staff the beds.” — Michael de Jong

patients are placed in hallways and surgeries have been cancelled. De Jong, who was in Vernon in April, says that besides acute care beds, there is also a need to look at long-term and residential care. “I’m expecting a comprehensive list of options,” he said of the review being done by his staff. However, de Jong would not give a specific date as to when

a decision may be made and he points out that there are other factors besides construction costs. “We have to find the money to staff the beds.” It’s estimated that it could cost about $10 million to complete each of the shelled-in floors and then $10 million each annually to operate the floors (with 30 beds each).

De Jong is aware of the petitions and the recent public rally demanding the two floors be opened. “It’s exactly what you would expect from a community that has a history of being as connected as Vernon has been,” he said. “People care about their hospital.” De Jong also has praise for Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster’s lobbying efforts. “He’s been tenacious on a daily basis,” said de Jong. But while he admits there are challenges at VJH, de Jong points to the $180 million patient care tower. “It’s one of the largest capital investments in health care in the

province,” he said. “People acknowledge the government has taken efforts to address the pressure.” In May, NDP leader Adrian Dix visited Vernon and blasted the Liberal government over VJH. “The issues haven’t been addressed for a long time because the Liberals take the Okanagan for granted,” said Dix. “How does it make sense to cut taxes for large corporations but you can’t fund basic services?” De Jong is quick to dismiss Dix’s comments. “For Mr. Dix to suggest the government hasn’t been addressing the pressures within the financial pressures it faces is purely politicking,” he said.

News Pattison bullish on B.C.’s economy RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

One of B.C.’s best known business leaders believes the worst is over economically. Jim Pattison, chairman of Jim Pattison Group, says there are a number of factors that have helped Canada and B.C. cope with the recession. “Canada is really, relative to the rest of the world, in good shape,� said Pattison, who was in Vernon Thursday to tour the community and visit Kiss FM, which his company owns. “Our banks have been solid and with our debt load, while high, compared to other countries our government has done relatively well.� Pattison says global demand for natural resources places B.C. on a strong footing and he expects the province can capitalize on growth in Asian nations. “We’ll be right there at the front door,� he said. Like most British Columbians, Pattison is awaiting the outcome of the harmonized sales tax referendum and whether the levy will be extinguished or continue. “I’m on the side of what’s best for the long-term,� he said. “From everything I’ve learned, I think the HST is the right decision for the overall long-term benefit. Some businesses will benefit and others won’t. There will always be trade-offs.�

Pattison and his senior executive, including former premier Glen Clark, met with Kiss FM staff and officially opened recent renovations at the radio station. “We understand more when we meet everybody,� he said of travelling to his various divisions. Pattison also toured Vernon for an hour with Mayor Wayne Lippert and Kevin Poole, the city’s economic development manager. “It’s always important to have prominent businesspeople here, especially when they have investments here,� said Lippert. “It shows a real confidence in what’s been happening here and what can happen here in Vernon.� Among the sights were the downtown core, Predator Ridge, construction of the new Kal Tire headquarters and the local Coopers Foods store, which Pattison owns along with Save On Foods. “We wanted to showcase the development going on here and possibly some of the opportunities,� said Poole. “Hopefully we will see if he wants to invest further in the community.� Pattison wouldn’t speculate on whether he will expand his presence in Vernon. “It depends on the industry,� he said, adding, though, that he is fond of the region. “I don’t know if there is a nicer place to live than the Okanagan. It’s a wonderful part of the world.�

Fate of proposed incinerator left in limbo

Assault sends woman to VJH JENNIFER SMITH Morning Star Staff

An alleged domestic assault has landed a Vernon woman in hospital and a suspect behind bars. A 22-year-old woman, with injuries to her face, head and neck, was taken away on a stretcher from the 2900 block of 29th Street Wednesday at 8:30 a.m. RCMP later caught up with a suspect at a Vernon residence, but had to call a hostage negotiator in to get the suspect to come out of his home. “He just didn’t want to come out,” said Gord Molendyk, RCMP spokesperson. Molendyk added that while there was no hostage involved, officers were cautious due to concerns that the suspect could have a weapon. “That’s still a dangerous situation.” The situation was resolved peacefully and the suspect exited the residence brandishing a broom that mimicked a rifle. The suspect was arrested and transported to Vernon cells. Gerry Cobel, 53, of Vernon appeared in court Thursday and now faces charges of assault, aggressive assault, assault of a police officer, breach of undertaking and carrying/using/threatening to use a weapon.

Plane crash claims former Laker and family ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

On the ice, Corey Carlson was a hardworker with soft hands. Off the ice, the Alaska native was laid back to the point he could never be suspected of playing a practical joke. Carlson, 41, who helped lead the Vernon Lakers to the 1989 B.C. Hockey League championship, and the team’s first of four straight appearances in the Centennial Cup (now Royal Bank Cup) Canadian championship tournament, was killed, along with his wife, Hetty, 39, and daughters Ella, five, and Addie, three, in a midair float plane crash in Alaska on the weekend. “He was such a good player to start with and a class individual, very caring,” said Vernon’s Ernie Gare, the head coach of that Lakers’ 1988-89 squad, shaken by the news of Carlson’s death. “He got along well with his teammates. He was certainly a pleasure to coach and was just a great kid to be around.” According to the Anchorage Daily News (ADN), Carlson’s craft collided with another float plane about 2:15 p.m. Saturday near Amber Lake, about 20 kilometres southwest of Trapper Creek which is 125 kilometres north of Anchorage. The second plane, a Cessna 206, was flown by a 56-year-old man from Alaska, a veteran Alaska Airlines captain. Its floats were heavily damaged but the captain was able to get to Anchorage and safely land on a runway at Stevens International Airport, according to State troopers.

MORNING STAR FILE PHOTO

Vernon Lakers forward Corey Carlson (centre) hoists head coach Ernie Gare on his shoulders after the team won the 1989 Abbott Cup Western Canadian championship over the Humboldt Broncos, qualifying the Lakers for their first of four straight Centennial Cup (now Royal Bank Cup) appearances. Carlson, 41, his wife and two young daughters were killed in an Alaska plane crash on the weekend. Carlson was flying his Cessna 180, which crashed and burned on the ground. A National Transportation Safety Board investigator said the weather at the time of the accident was good, but it is hard for a pilot to spot another small plane in the sky. The captain told the investigator he saw Carlson’s aircraft at the last instant and tried to steer away from him, but couldn’t. Carlson worked as an Anchorage-based manager for a branch of General Electric, involved in oil and gas

production, his father, Don, told ADN. He immersed himself in the pursuits that draw so many to Alaska. “Hunting, fishing, catching shrimp, skiing down the mountains and doing all that young stuff,” said Don. “And when he got married, he decided to get an airplane. He always wanted to fly.” Hetty, a fourth-generation Alaskan, worked as a pharmaceutical company representative. She and Carlson married in Hawaii eight years ago, and when their girls were born,

she stayed home to take care of them. About six years ago, Carlson began flying. The couple and their girls loved going out in the plane, relatives said, referring to the plane as the family’s “minivan.” Carlson played just one season in Vernon, appearing in 59 of 60 regular-season games. He scored 23 goals and added 64 assists for 87 points, good for sixth in Interior Conference scoring, and was one of six Vernon players named to the Interior Conference squad for the league’s all-star game which the Lakers

thought enough of me that he used to look at me sitting in that little cubicle at the Civic Arena every time he was on the ice. “He was a first-class

hosted at Civic Arena that year (1989). The Lakers defeated the New Westminster Royals in five games for the Fred Page Cup BCHL title. “We were both rookies on that team and I remember Corey was always so laid back all of the time,” said Carlson’s Lakers roommate, Cam Sylven. “He had a lot of good jokes. He was a hard-working player and what always stuck in my mind was his attitude that good things happen to guys that work their tail off. He was just a super all-round guy.” On the way back from New Westminster, it was the quiet, laidback Carlson who put shaving cream on the head of an unsuspecting, sleeping newspaper reporter from the Vernon Daily News. Carlson and the Lakers would go on to defeat the Red Deer Rustlers and Humboldt Broncos to qualify for the Centennial Cup, where the team went 0-3. “He was a great kid, the son I never had,” said Mel Lis, the Lakers’ owner and general manager in 1989, and father of three daughters, who convinced Carlson to play in Vernon. “Corey was always asking questions. He

kid. This news is so tragic. It shouldn’t have happened.” Carlson’s play and attitude earned him a scholarship to the University of Denver.

Claridge focus of tributes RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

An outspoken defender of his community and the tree fruit industry is being remembered fondly. Allan Claridge, a longtime Oyama orchardist, died Wednesday at age 87. “He’s a pioneer,” said Deb Butler, Oyama Community Club president. Born at sea in 1924, Claridge moved to Oyama with his family when he was five years old. His love for Oyama knew no bounds. “If you have love of a district, it’s not impossible to get more out of it than you give,” he said during a 1999 interview. He is a former member of the Oyama Community Club executive and he often chaired the club’s annual general meetings. He volunteered at Oyama Fun Day, and lobbied to keep Oyama Elementary School open. In the mid-1990s, Claridge was part of an unsuccessful bid to keep Oyama out of the new municipality of Lake Country. “He was a huge supporter of the community,” said Butler. Claridge was known for encouraging youth to pursue their dreams, and serving as an unofficial community arbitrator. “He was very eloquent and able to facilitate dialogue between residents,” said Noreen Guenther, the Oyama representative on Lake Country council. “He played a role of opening people up so they could discuss

Allan Claridge, who died Wednesday, was a force in the Okanagan tree fruit industry for decades.

“Our experience with Deb White/ White House Mortgages have been a pleasure. She focused on our individual needs in our mortgage financing. She made the transactions smooth and worry free. We have and would highly recommend her to look after anyone’s mortgage needs.” - N & D Follow me on twitter @WhiteHouseMtg

things.” Claridge’s connections to the tree fruit industry took root when his parents began farming. “There was a passion not just for this industry but agriculture in general,” said Joe Sardinha, B.C. Fruit Growers Association president. “He was a man who, no matter how the year was going, was always

upbeat and positive.” Claridge was a member of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association executive from 1957 to 1964, served as association president from 1966 to 1972 and was president of the Canadian Horticultural Council in 1970. He was named agriculturist of the year by the B.C. Agrologists Institute in 1971

and served with the Agricultural Land Commission. Working with him in the orchard were his wife Elsie, who died in 2010, son Don and daughter Alana (daughter Candice lives in Kamloops). “We’re able to work, live and enjoy it together, and we’re proud of what we do,” said Claridge in 1999.

A service will be held Aug. 11 at 2 p.m. at the Oyama cemetery, followed by a tea at the Oyama Community Hall.

The valley of my ancestry

G’day, g’day, and how are youse?” That was the greeting as I stepped into a store while on vacation in Ontario last month to pick up some mandatory bug spray and SPF 50 sunscreen. It was music to my ears, and much more welcoming than the buzz of those darn, chompyou-to-death deer flies. With the letter A enunciated as “Ah,” and their own unique brand of slang, those from my other favourite valley –– the Ottawa Valley –– sure have a funny way of speaking. No guff! It must be the “skeeters” or the “sauce” that makes ‘em talk so Kristin Froneman funny, and that ain’t some Calabogie nonsense. Located west of the nation’s capital along the Ottawa River, and bisected by the mighty Madawaska, where paddlers go to catch class one to four rapids, as well as the Opeongo Indian Trail, the valley is a unique part of this country. And it holds a special place in my heart as it is where my maternal ancestry comes from. In fact, the area of Brownley Township east of Eganville, is named Bulgers Corners after my grandfather’s family. A merchant, my great-grandfather Michael Bulger, whose parents hailed from Ireland (there are rumours that we may be related to the notorious Whitey Bulger, the second most wanted, and recently captured, man on the FBI’s most wanted list) and great-grandmother Mary Jane Breen opened one of the first general stores in the area. Ran for years by my great-auntie, who used to lead me lovingly by hand to the penny candy jar, the store closed over a decade ago, with all the antiques, including vintage 1920s Coca Cola posters, sold by auction. However, the building still stands, as does the old one-room schoolhouse across the road

that is still owned by my family and rented out. It was there, that my great-great grandfather Daniel Bulger served as one of the first school trustees from Ireland. In fact, my second cousin still has the 1855 school ledger in her possession. Then there’s the old gingerbread-style late19th century house on the property where my grandfather and his brothers and sisters grew up. To my delight, it still looks the same –– with the red brick exterior, side verandah, and attached carriage house, where my mom used to be taken by horse and buggy for rides around the county roads. Inside, it has been lovingly updated in Asian decor by my cousin, who has turned it into an artist and meditation retreat –– a haven surrounded by lush gardens and history. I remember spending time with all four of my great aunties, including Sister Irene, the oldest living Grey Sister of the Immaculate Conception, who later died in Pembroke at the ripe age of 102. A lovely lady, she was not shy to imbibe the occasional dram of whisky while playing a rousing game of euchre. Their spirit was certainly felt when there lying on the dining room table, where hours of those card games were played and fought over, stacks of old photos, ledgers, merchant bills, and all sorts of memorabilia left over from the store and house were waiting for me. “Help yourself,” said my cousin. Impossible to go through it all, I managed to sneak away with a few clippings from the now 109-year-old newspaper The Eganville Leader, some old music books, as well as pictures of the store, and one slightly sepia copy of my grandfather in his Christening gown. And that was just a visit to my grandfather’s side. My grandmother’s folk come from Deacon near Killaloe, with the mystifying Golden Lake, which actually gleams gold at sundown, as a backdrop. The stories from there are best left for another chapter, when hopefully I can say g’day to the valley again.

The message from Health Minister Michael de Jong hasn’t changed since he toured Vernon Jubilee Hospital in the spring. He insists that he is aware of the chronic overcrowding that’s forcing patients into hallways or any other space that may be free. He says he is aware of the situation that forces surgeries to be cancelled on an ongoing basis. Most of all, de Jong says he sympathizes with the plight of residents and health care professionals. “The number one priority is that patients in Vernon and the surrounding area receive the highest quality care possible. We understand there are pressures,” he said Wednesday. We have to take de Jong at his word, but if he is aware of what’s going on in the North Okanagan, why hasn’t something been done? Capacity issues are nothing new. It’s taken years to get to the point where the 165 patients on average daily are outstripping the 148 acute care beds. De Jong says there is a need to open more residential care beds as a way of getting people out of the hospital, but that is a long-term solution. Obviously completing the two shelled-in floors in the patient care tower isn’t cheap. Construction runs at $10 million per floor and then there’s $10 million annually for operations. And yes the provincial government, along with its municipal partners, pumped $180 million into the new tower. But using that as an excuse for inaction, is tiresome. If more needs to be done to provide quality care, just bite the bullet and do it. Until an announcement is made on acute care beds, de Jong’s comments ring hollow.

More staff needed at hospital

M

any people are saying that if only these two floors at the hospital were opened, the crisis of a lack of beds would end. This is patently untrue. If these floors are opened, Vernon Jubilee will not gain more beds. As no further staff would be hired to staff these floors, current wards in the existing hospital would be closed, and the staff of these wards merely transferred to the two new floors, thereby gaining no new beds. It is quite possible that beds would indeed be lost. While the patients would have nice new shiny rooms to be in, there would still likely be beds in the hallways, and an overall lack of beds.

LOCAL FRUIT On July 21, B.C. Tree Fruits celebrated its 75th anniversary. In a changing world, it is important that our values stay constant. This is a significant milestone in the organization’s history. It marks 75 years of tradition, challenges, opportunities, achievements and 75 years of marketing the finest tree fruits worldwide. The B.C. Tree Fruit “Leaf Brand” is one of the most recognized logos. An astounding 92 per cent of apple buyers in Western Canada are aware of the B.C. Leaf Brand. Awareness of the B.C. brand is actually higher in Saskatchewan than in B.C. The consumer perception of the brand is quality, trust, and availability. In 1936, BC tree fruit growers and industry leaders came together to create B.C. Tree Fruits Ltd. because they believed they could best address the issue of promoting and selling their fruits. This holds true today. As part of this co-operative system, growers operate

The hospital will still be holding long-term care patients, who have no where else to go, as there are very few new beds in existing facilities being opened, and no new long-term care facilities being built. The government has shown no commitment to hiring the required staff needed to expand beds at VJH. I do however, believe these floors will indeed be opened, just before the next provincial election, with all the PR photo-ops that go along with it, to tell us just how much our current government cares about health care. Just look at the shiny new tower. Bob Cail

orchards and join forces to pack, store, distribute and market their fruits. Together, we work for the greater good of local communities, farm families and B.C.’s tree fruit industry. As president of the B.C. Fruit Growers Association, I encourage everyone to show their support for the Okanagan fruit industry. The next time you’re in the produce section of your favorite grocery store, look at the label and look for the B.C. leaf. Buy B.C. tree fruits. Remember, you’re not just eating a healthy, nutritious fruit. You’re also supporting family farms and local jobs in the Okanagan. Join us in celebrating the 75th anniversary of B.C. Tree Fruits. Joe Sardinha, President B.C. Tree Fruit Growers Associaton CANADA DAY PARKING I would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who joined us at the Canada Day celebration in Polson Park. It was truly an awesome turnout and we appreciate

EFLECTIONS

those who were polite to myself and staff while parking you accordingly. I'd also like to inform those who parked on the clearly marked, no parking yellow lines that we did not at any time instruct or encourage those to do so. As we moved to the fireworks display in the evening, I'm thinking that those of you who blamed us for the issued parking tickets in the park will also complain to the City of Vernon about instructing you to turn north against the several clearly marked signs. As this is the fourth consecutive year we've done these events, may I make some recommendations for next year? Ask those volunteers about parking procedures if you're not sure. Take the free shuttle bus that the city offers to such events so as not to have to worry about parking. Obey the signs. There is a bit of confusion for some and others just ignore us flag people regardless. Anyway, there's always going to be someone who

doesn't agree with the rules and recommendations but as we maintained our polite smiles for the duration, we were only doing our jobs. We look forward to seeing those that are going to greet us and appreciate what we do again next year. Traci Evans, Okanagan Traffic Control HELPING HAND With a very high number of aging population, physically disabled people and the amount of people on scooters and in wheelchairs, I was shocked to see the amount of businesses and restaurants in the downtown area that do not have handicap doors. How many of us have held doors open for these people who sit with puzzled looks wanting to go into a business and they can't unless someone notices them and holds a door open for them? Come on Vernon and have a heart. Increase your revenue and install these doors. Thank you to those businesses which already assist the handicapped. Sue Helsdon

GREAT DESIGN A big thank you to the principals of the Nixon Wenger law firm. We can now see the classic design elements of our court house reflected in the design of the new law offices going up on 30th Avenue. This corner of downtown will be visually anchored by the court house, Justice Park and the new office building. We can all hope that future builders will be as inspired. Hew Kidston CARTOON WRONG I was appalled by the cartoon that you included on the opinion page of The Morning Star July 29. I felt it showed incredibly poor taste. If you have made it to this point in your own lives without having to fight a serious illness, I would expect that you could, at the very least, show some sympathy to someone who hasn't. I believe you owe Mr. Layton and all of your readers an apology. If there is such a thing as karma in this world I would suggest that you each set to work immediately on some

good deeds. Linda Hoover

The Royal Bank at the Shops at Polson Park was robbed July 28.

RCMP locate heroin and cash Vernon RCMP got a bonus when they found a suspect wanted on an arrest warrant from a recent undercover operation. Officers from the community response unit were in the 3000 block of 34th Street Tuesday when they noticed the man, wanted for trafficking a controlled substance. The officers placed the suspect under arrest for the warrant and, during the booking procedure, officers discovered the suspect was in possession of numerous baggies of suspected heroin, a quantity of cash and cell phones.

Zakri Schaeffer, 21, of Vernon, now faces a second charge of possession for the purposes of trafficking. He made his first appearance in court Wednesday, and was expected to re-appear in provincial court Thursday. Undercover RCMP officers successfully purchased drugs (predominantly cocaine and heroin) from 21 different people during a May long sting. The operation took place across the city and resulted in 25 drug related charges. The investigation is ongoing.

Environment Network Society wants 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. “We don’t know how much GMO is in the area,” said director Mike Macnabb. “By setting up a committee, we can get information and have something to talk about.”

However, opposition came from directors Mike Gavinchuk and Wayne Lippert. “We have no control over what these people want us to do,” said Gavinchuk of SENS. For Lippert, he questioned the process. “It’s good to be informed but look at the groups already in the community that do this work already. They can give us the information,” he said. Director Buffy Baumbrough, though, said there is a need for

RDNO to establish its own committee so a fair and balanced approach

Sea-Doos collide on Kal Lake ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

One North Okanagan man suffered non-life-threatening injuries after two Sea-Doos collided on Kalamalka Lake Tuesday. The accident happened around 4:30 p.m. “One witness account said a man was unconscious, upside down in the water, but a boat had picked him up and brought him to shore,” said Dave Sturgeon, Coldstream fire chief. “The ambulance was already there (Kalavista boat launch) when we got there.” It’s believed the accident happened further up the lake, towards the mouth

“A man was unconscious, upside down in the water.” — Dave Sturgeon of Coldstream Creek, near Kirkland Drive. Sturgeon said witnesses told officials the pleasure crafts were being operated in a reckless manner. “One of the Sea-Doos was totalled on the top, the other one didn’t look to have any damage,” he said. The injured operator, a 19-year-old Coldstream man, was taken to Vernon Jubilee

Hospital for X-rays. The other operator, a 22-year-old Lumby man, was not injured. He received a violation ticket for operating a vessel without a license. Vernon-North Okanagan RCMP confirm that neither operator was intoxicated at the time of the accident. Both pleasure crafts are owned by a 56-year-old Coldstream resident.

NATALIA VIGNOLA/MORNING STAR

Mayor Wayne Lippert gets the first dig Tuesday with (from left) doctors Steve Friesen, Nicholas Half, Chris Cunningham and Greg Appelt at the site of the planned medical facility on 25th Avenue.

Access to health services builds RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Public access to medical services is being linked to the long-term health of Vernon’s economy. Construction will begin soon on the Sterling medical building, a $3.9 million project at 3210 25th Ave. It will include a range of medical professionals and a pharmacy. “There’s a real opportunity to attract health professionals,” said Kevin Poole, the city’s economic development manager, adding that physicians create employment opportunities through support staff. “We can attract different specialists in the community.” Poole also says that the presence of doctors, and particularly specialists, is something people consider when looking for a community to move to. “We’re focusing on attracting families but also seniors and they need to have those amenities in place.” The site — across from Real Canadian Wholesale Club — is

just on the boundary of downtown Vernon, which is a focus of revitalization. “This will be a significant improvement to this area,” said Mayor Wayne Lippert who participated in a groundbreaking ceremony Tuesday. “This shows confidence in what we’re doing here in Vernon.” It’s anticipated that the four-storey, 30,000-square-foot medical building will open in March 2012. “We looked at multiple sites but we kept coming back to this one,” said Dr. Greg

Appelt, with Appelt Medical Developments and a Kelowna immunologist. The main attraction to the property is its proximity to Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “Physicians’ lives are busy and they are always looking at efficiencies. To be practically across from the hospital is ideal,” said Appelt. Confirmed tenants include Dr. Chris Cunningham, Dr. Steve Friesen, Dr. Nick Half, Dr. Glenn Vaz and Dr. Christine Hatfield. “The location is perfect,” said Half, who

is a obstetrician and gynecologist. “If I’m called up for a baby, I can be there (hospital) in two seconds.” Negotiations are currently underway for a pharmacy to occupy 7,500-square-feet on the main floor. Appelt also anticipates the complex including professionals like audiologists, dentists and physiotherapists. “Having these associated uses under one roof improves communication amongst health care workers and benefits our patients

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. Due to increased irrigation demands, additional seasonal water sources have been brought online. These seasonal water sources are only chlorinated before entering the distribution system, resulting in turbidity that at times exceeds 1.0 NTU. GVWU has been actively monitoring the water quality and all bacterial tests have been clear, however 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.

‘Tis the season for West Nile Black Press

The irritating and increasingly common buzz of mosquitoes prompted the B.C Centre for Disease Control to issue a warning to Okanagan residents — August is West Nile virus season. “If you look at historical data, human cases take place at this time of year,” said Dan Ferguson, assistant director of health protection at the Interior Health Authority, explaining what prompted the alert. And this year the threat rose with flood waters that awakened eggs that were sitting dormant for what Ferguson said were two, three or four years. Cool temperatures stopped those newborns from breeding, but rising mercury is giving them a chance to catch up and some newborns may carry West Nile virus. “We measure the number of high degree days because that’s the timeframe that a mosquito can produce another generation,” according to Ferguson. “It needs to be warm and they need to be feeding.” That said, there’s been no cases of the virus showing up just yet, said Ferguson. “Across B.C., 116 human samples were tested for West Nile as of July 21, and they were all negative,” he said. “Also, 584 mosquito pools were tested and they too were all negative.” There have also been no positive test results from human, animal, or mosquito samplings in Oregon, or Washington State, which are among the key indicators for how this region will fare. Historically, there have only been eight cases of West Nile in B.C. This year, there’s only been one case reported, and that was a Canadian who had been travelling out of the country. “However, individuals still need to be vigilant and take precautions to avoid being bit,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry, physician epidemiologist with the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. “Simple things such as using repellents outdoors, particularly in the evening and early morning when mosquitoes are most active, is a good protective measure.” For more information about West Nile virus or tips to keep safe, check out www.bccdc.ca.

Shamrocks roll third-period rally Morning Star Staff

The Cats had it in the bag, or so they thought. Up 5-1 heading into the third period, the Vernon Tigers were stunned as the host Armstrong Shamrocks earned a 7-6 comeback win in a series-deciding Game 3 of the Shaw Cup senior C men’s lacrosse semifinals in a sweltering Hassen Memorial Arena Wednesday night. “Their sticks lit up and our sticks went cold,” shrugged assistant coach/player Steve Latimer. “We played the same system all game and it worked out pretty well in the first period. I think we just started looking towards the end of the game instead of what was happening right in front of us.” Armstrong will now face the Kelowna Raiders, who stuffed the Kamloops Rattlers 10-6 in Game 3 of the other — Steve semifinal Tuesday night. Game 1 of the Shaw Cup final goes tonight at Memorial Arena in Kelowna. Armstrong will host Game 2 of the best-of-three affair Monday, 7:30 p.m. at Hassen. “We had some close games against Kelowna this year, but we know if we want to be successful we will have to be way more disciplined as Kelowna is very dangerous on the powerplay,” said Shamrocks’ keeper Chad Pieper. Fourty-three-year-old Tiger veteran Bryan Cope took a pass at the top of the crease and beat Shamrocks’ goalie Chad Pieper shorthanded to open the scoring Wednesday night. Singles by Kirk Krause, on the powerplay, and junior call-up Kasmer Boudreau, beating two Shamrocks defenders for another shorty, had Armstrong reeling. Vernon further stretched its lead and silenced the raucous Hassen crowd on consecutive man advantage goals by Rob Short and Latimer to end the first-period scoring. The Shamrock offence came to life in the second, but so did Vernon netminder Glen Clissold. “There were a lot of times he was mak-

ing saves he had no business making,” said Latimer. Added Clissold: “It was great playing in Hassen in front of a full crowd. Our fans really supported us.” The Rocks finally solved Clissold midway through the second when Logan Strohm buried a nice cross-crease pass for the only goal of the frame. With their season on the line, the Shamrocks held nothing back in the third period, striking early as call-up Milan Marcetta ripped a shot top shelf. The Rocks kept the pressure on with Strohm finding the net for his second, followed by Marcetta sneaking a long screen shot through traffic. With the Hassen crowd in a frenzy, the Shamrocks equalized on Stohm’s hat trick goal. Armstrong took its first lead on a delayed penalty call Latimer when Jarrett Medhurst solved Clissold with 10 minutes remaining. Suffering from heat exhaustion in the Hassen hot box, Clissold was forced to give way to backup Ivor Sandaker. The duo combined for 46 saves. Pieper recorded 27 stops. Cope, depositing a high rebound off Pieper, drew Vernon even on the powerplay goal with four minutes to play, but the Rocks’ Brett Logan buried the winner on a nice outside shot with less than two minutes to go. “We stuck to our game-plan and started to outwork Vernon in the second, and in the third, we were able to get on a roll and find the back of the net,” said player/coach Chad Pounder. “We had the fans worried for two periods, but they came to life in the third. It’s always fun playing in the old Hassen Arena. I really hope nobody left early, because they missed a great period of lacrosse.” Though disappointed with the Tigers’ collapse, Latimer noted this was Vernon’s first .500 season in three seasons. “People didn’t really give us much of a chance after the last couple years we’ve had,

“Their sticks lit up and our sticks went cold.”

It’s definitely something we can build on for next year,” he said. With Boudreau, Brennan Plante and a handful of other junior Tiger grads expected

to make the jump, next year looks good for the senior Cats. “We went through a couple lean years, but this year really turned the tide,” said Clissold.

Vipers trigger four-player deal to land TenVaanholt GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

Dane Muench

Phil Patenaude

Last year Jarryd TenVaanholt was a Vernon Viper killer. After a turbulent offseason, he is about to make his home in their den. The former Salmon Arm SilverBack was dealt to the SJHL Kindersley Klippers in late June, along with Josh McKissock and Justin Elliot, in exchange for defenceman Sean Flannagan. A little more than a month later, and TenVaanholt, a 1991-born forward, is headed back to the B.C. Hockey League. The Vipers acquired the 6-foot-1, 195-pound West Vancouver product, along with the rights to Elliot, in a four-player deal that will send ‘92 forward Dane Muench and ‘91 d-man Phil Patenaude to the Klippers. While he still has a lot of friends on the SilverBacks, TenVaanholt said he looks forward to facing his former team on opening night (Friday, Sept. 23 at

Wesbild Centre). “I’m really looking forward to that after everything that went down,” he said. “At the start it was kind of shocking, going from Salmon Arm to Kindersley. But as soon as I found out I was going from Kindersley to Vernon, it was a bestcase scenario. I’m ecstatic right now. “It’s really weird when you first think about it. Last year, I hated Vernon; this year, I’ll hate Salmon Arm. You can be friends (with old teammates) up until an hour-and-a-half before game time, but when you step on the ice it’s friends over (until after the game).” TenVaanholt, a former draft pick of the WHL Swift Current Broncos, posted a respectable 22-28-50 and 46 penalty minutes in 58 games with Salmon Arm last season. Against Vernon, however, he always seemed to find another gear, recording five goals and two helpers in seven regular-season tilts.

TenVaanholt came to Salmon Arm from the KIJHL Sicamous Eagles, who he led in scoring with 60 points in 47 games in the 2009-10 campaign. “I like to believe I’m a good two-way player, especially in my own end. I can play in any situation, and I like to chip in any way the team needs me,” said TenVaanholt, who turns 20 in October. Said Vipers’ head coach/GM Jason Williamson: “Any time you can acquire a guy like that who put up some numbers and is hard to play against, you have to look at it. But you have to give up something good to get it.” When the Vipers eliminated the SilverBacks from the playoffs last season, it opened up an opportunity for TenVaanholt and a handful of his teammates to travel to Russia to compete in a four-team Russian invitational tournament in Podolsk.

Dodds delivers for Dental Clinic Morning Star Staff

Dr. Lee Dental/Checkers spotted the Little Tex Outlaws an early 1-0 lead and then got serious, grounding the Outlaws 6-1 in North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Competitive Division play Tuesday night at Marshall Field #1. Christine Neilson, who ran miles all night, scored in the 10th to give Little Tex the lead. The 9-4 Floss crew then went to work with Kirsten Dodds, set up by Jacquie Hansen, at 20 minutes, equalizing. Just 10 minutes later, a shot by outside half Kimberly Teichman deflected off a Tex player and gave Anita Rea no chance in making the save to put Dr. Lee up 2-1. A hand ball in the box with six minutes to go in the half made it 3-1 as Dodds converted the penalty kick. Teichman, on a great header from an Irene Arrotta corner, made it 4-1, and then Madison Kaneda, on a lovely three-way passing play from Andi King and Dodds, made it 5-1. Leah Frye, from King, completed the offence with five minutes left. The defensive line of Loren Brunelle, Dana Reid, Bobbi Cormier and Cindy Worth shut down the 9-4-1 Little Tex offence, with Lisa Goodgrove running miles in the middle. Lisa Arrotta recorded the win in net. Keeper Anita Rae was solid for the Outlaws, who got a usual stellar showing from Jordan Mercer and a great game from from Lori Phillips.

Ghattas scores a beauty for NET TED United grounded the North Enderby Timber 7-2 in Salmon Arm, opening the scoring early with a dribbler. The Celtics went down 2-0 midway through the first half but didn’t stop working and got a goal from Heidi Holtmann, who snuck through United’s offside trap. United (10-2-2) scored five more as the Celtics (2-12) went down to nine players due to injuries. Gabby Ghattas scored possibly the goal of the year, men’s or women’s soccer. She beat several defenders, leaving her with one defender and the keeper to beat. The defender tried to play Ghattas hard with the body. Ghattas used the momentum to spin off the defender which left her turning onto her left foot before she hammered the ball top shelf, short side . “It was an amazing goal from an amazing player on what I would call arguably the best goalie in the league,” said NET coach Graham Ross. In Masters play, the Okanagan Impact extended their undefeated streak to 11 games by crushing the Shuswap Kaos 8-1 at Marshall #4. Edeen Ramsey pulled the hat trick for the 10-3-3 Impact, who got singles from Kim Wiebe, Heather Findlay and Shelinda Morin, Sue Herring and Janelle Smithson. The Impact received excellent support from Denise Connor, who displayed great hustle, passing and control all game. Findlay, who played up front and mid-

field, was terrific at being first to the ball with some great challenges. The Shuswap goal was a beautiful high shot, which keeper Kris Ponto, despite showing unbelievable athleticism, couldn’t stop. The heavily-favoured Controllers (9-4-3) and the upstart Seasons Sista’s (2-112) battled to a scoreless draw at Marshall #5. The Controllers, who bowed 1-0 to Calgary BMW in the B final of the 32nd Shuswap Soccer Tournament on the weekend, had players coming out of their cars on to the pitch looking totally disorganized for the 6:30 kickoff.

Jarryd Ten Vaanholt (right) of the Salmon Arm SilverBacks battles Vernon Viper defenceman Brett Corkey in B.C. Hockey League action last season.

Kozak’s 83 knocked him well out of the top-20 in the field of 156. He opened with a 72 Tuesday and followed up with a 75 on Day 2. The tournament ends today. Kozak, who will play for the UBC Thunderbirds this fall, is in the Canadian Amateur, Aug. 11-14, in Winnipeg. He went into the Canadian Junior on a high after scoring two aces in two weeks at Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club. Team B.C. teammate Kevin Kwon,

Vernon’s Conner Kozak was playing well in the Canadian Junior Boys Golf Championships until he ran into trouble on the seventh hole Thursday morning at Morgan Creek in South Surrey. The 18-year-old Seaton grad carded a 10 on the par-5 hole en route to a 46 on the front nine. He recovered on the back nine, scoring three birdies, two on the final two holes, for a 37.

“That was truly an eye opener, going to Russia and playing for Canada. (The kids) all see the Canadian flag and flock to you and ask for autographs. It was one of my better hockey moments, especially after we beat the Russian junior team.” Meanwhile, Williamson and former Viper head coach Mark Ferner wrapped up their second annual Sunvalley Showcase at Priest Valley Arena. A total of 70 players, including a handful of Vipers, practised and scrimmaged on four teams in preparation for their respective training camps. Watching the event were scouts from college and junior levels. “BCHL, WHL, NCAA – all levels of hockey were represented and the players got great exposure,” said Williamson, who is busy preparing for his weekend marriage to fiancee Kristin Jackson. He added the showcase offers a good benchmark for determining a player’s fitness level before main camps begin. “It’s a little wake-up call for some of the guys and lets them know they have to get to work.” Vipers main camp goes Sept. 1. SNAKE BITES: The Penticton Vees acquired netminder Michael Garteig from the Victoria Grizzlies. Garteig, who turns 20 Nov. 5, was part of a threeteam trade between the Vees, Powell River Kings and Grizzlies. Penticton got Garteig from Victoria for 20-year-old G Jamie Tucker. Garteig was traded to Victoria in a 3-for-1 early this week by the Kings. F Evan Richardson went to the Kings.

Fever cook up fourth place Morning Star Staff

The Okanagan Spring/Progressive Automotive Fever settled for fourth place in the Slo-Pitch National (SPN) Co-Ed C Championships in Leduc, Alta. Coached by Heather Savitsky, the Fever bowed 13-10 to the Abbotsford Rhinos in the bronzemedal game Sunday. “I am so proud of how each and every member of our team played over the four days at Nationals,� said Savitsky. “Next for our team is the 2011 provincials, Sept. 16-18, in Langley, where we will be not only playing for the provincial title, but also qualifying for the 2012 Nationals being held in Langley.� The Rhinos scored four runs in the first inning, but the Fever came back with a seven-run second to take the lead. Abbotsford counted three in the fourth, and the Fever responded with a deuce in the fifth. “Scoring one in the sixth kept our energy, spirit and drive going,� said Savitsky. “With the Rhinos still leading going into the seventh, we pulled no punches, and with runners on second and third, we just couldn’t bring them in.� In the double-knockout playoff round Sunday morning, the Fever lost 13-4 to the undefeated Saskatchewan Fuze. That loss moved Vernon into the single-knockout side, where they clipped the Damaged Leftovers of Manitoba 11-9. Wayne Larsson went 4-for-4 with a home run and three runs, while Mike Burke was 2-for-4 with a double, triple and two runs. Kelli Graham was 3-for-4 with two runs, while Brandie Hunter supplied two hits, one ribbie and two runs.

Monashee Surveying brushed back Davidson & Co. Dynamite 2-1 in North Okanagan Men’s Soccer League action Wednesday night at Marshall Field. The second-place Dynamite (7-5-2) had a few players hurt in a Kamloops tournament last weekend so played with just 10 men. They grabbed a 1-0 halftime lead on a penalty kick by Geoff Cox, awarded when Monashee keeper Ouen Ouch was whistled for a foul on a tackle. The Surveyors (5-7-2) failed to equalize in the opening half when Devon Marriott sailed a penalty shot over stalwart keeper Bryndon Buckham, and the net, after a hand-ball ruling. Darren Nobrega’s goal on a scramble in front tied things up and Marriott, on a similar play, netted the winner in the second half. Monashee veteran Mike Arding cited Kevin Knauf for outstanding play at central defender, while also praising outside defender Ryan Sharp for a solid showing. In other action, Turn-Key Controls of Vernon bowed 3-0 to the Eagle Homes Nation of Domination in Salmon Arm. Eagle Homes bounced out to an early 1-0 lead off a set piece that was curled around the wall, giving keeper Greg Douma no chance. Back and forth play continued in the first half with Eagle Homes capitalizing on the few chances they had for a 3-0 lead at the break. The second half saw a reinvigorated Turn-Key squad apply pressure from all fronts. Cam Egan had several chances but couldn’t solve the Eagle Homes’ keeper. Turn-Key received stellar play from midfielders Dan Metcalf and Rob McGloin in pushing the offence forward. Eagle Homes improved to 8-5 and sole possession

CALENDAR

After a rain-delayed start on Day 1, the Fever opened by outslugging the Rhinos 10-7 behind the pitching of Belinda Marks. Dave Cover went 2-for-3, scoring once and knocking in two runs. Graham, Troy Warner and Larsson each had one run-scoring hit and one run. The Spring crew then stopped the Surrey Krunch 11-10 in a battle of the only B.C. entries. Strong defence from Jenn Thatcher, Nancy Lafreniere, Gord Tung, Todd Doyle, and outstanding pitching from Ernie Cupello, helped the Fever take a three-run lead going into the bottom of the seventh. The Krunch fought back with two, and with the tying run on third, Cupello registered two strikes on a male batter and then tossed the perfect pitch to get the strikeout and the win. Vernon got strong bats from Michelle Embleton, who was 3-for-4, Thatcher, who was 3-for-4 with a RBI, Burke, 2-for-2 with a run and an RBI and Gord Tung, 3-for-4 and two runs. On Day 2, the Fever spotted the Fuze 10-2, second-inning lead before grabbing a 16-10 lead and eventually falling 18-16. Doyle delivered a pair of dingers, while Larsson also homered and Kurt Roberts was 3-for-3 with two runs and two ribbies. Lafreniere went 2-for 4 with two walks and one run, while Don Hunter supplied two hits and two runs. The Fever finished preliminary play with a 26-7 win over the fun-seeking Norman Wells entry from the Northwest Territories. Tung, Cover and Don Hunter each went 4-for5, while Brandie Hunter was 3-for-3 and Marks helped her cause with three hits.

Seidel savours stateside tour Rob

Dinwoodie

Morning Star Staff

Armstrong’s Cole Seidel has played in his share of stifling box lacrosse rinks, but not much could have prepared him for his latest tour with the Burnaby Mountain Selects senior Elite field team in Maryland. In the midst of an eastern continental heat wave, the Selects, the sole Canadian squad competing, played in temperatures reaching the low 50s (with humidity) at the 22nd annual Champ Camp in Baltimore. The city’s health department issued a state-wide code red heat alert for the entire tournament. “You had to be careful. You have to drink so much water. It’s almost scary; there was this one kid on another team who couldn’t walk. His legs just started cramping up,” said Seidel, a 17-year-old Pleasant Valley Secondary student. The four-day event featured more than 2,000 athletes on 72 teams representing 22 states and the District of Columbia. The Selects finished the four-game round-robin as the second seed behind five-time defending champion and eventual runners-up, Dukes Lacrosse Club. After opening with an 8-7 overtime loss to Select Lacrosse of Pennsylvania, Burnaby Mountain reeled off two straight wins, grounding Minnesota’s Lakeshore Lakers 9-8 and New Jersey’s Team Turnpike 5-1. They ended the round-robin at 2-2 when they fell 7-0 to Dukes of Pennsylvania, but became one of only four teams west of the Mississippi to qualify for the Top 32 championship bracket. The Selects didn’t fare so well in playoff action, losing 10-2 to FuZe Blue of Virginia, 7-3 to For The Love of The Game of New York, and 6-3 to Red and Black Elite of New Jersey. Seidel, a midfielder, said it was great to go up against top North American competition and meet some of college recruiters and coaches that scouted the event. “Seeing the universities and getting to talk to the coaches was great. And just playing against some of the top players; the players down there are in better shape. They’re so fast it’s ridiculous,” said Seidel. During their stay, the Selects took in an afternoon baseball game between the Baltimore Orioles and L.A. Angels, and wrapped up their trip with a day in New York City, touring Manhattan and visiting Battery Park, Ground Zero, Rockefeller Plaza, Macy’s, Trump Tower and Times Square.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You should be able to use to your advantage something beneficial that develops regarding an endeavor in which you’re presently involved. It will elevate your hopes and expectations. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Although it is not unusual for you, your qualities of kindness and consideration for others will be very much in evidence to all with whom you’re involved, making you extremely popular. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Any logical evaluations you get are likely to be seasoned with a bit of sensitivity, giving you added wisdom, not just good ideas. People won’t be able to help taking you seriously. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Most things you take on will work out extremely well for you because you’ll instinctively know how to utilize whatever resources you have at your disposal with great efficacy. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Things should go much smoother for you than usual and consequently get you the type of cooperation you want and desire from your mate, partner or special someone. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) This could be an interesting but unexpected day that will be productive, profitable and personally rewarding. Get down to business and don’t let frivolous interests distract you. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) If there is some kind of assignment or personal project you would like to reorganize and get off to a fresh start, you won’t

find a better day to do so. Take control instead of letting circumstances control you. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Finishing off the work week with the completion of a project on which you’ve toiled hard and long will bring you great satisfaction. Get out and celebrate, if you wish. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Because you’re endowed with some impressively strong powers of concentration, use them constructively to sort out a project that you’ve been finding confusing and difficult. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Although you’re better known for rolling the dice rather than for being practical, you won’t do anything that isn’t well thought out when it comes to your commercial interests. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It could be one of those rare days when you’ll be able to do most anything you want without too much outside interference. Why not focus your efforts on advancing a personal aim?

Is the natural landscape, public access to the lake, as well as fish and wildlife habitat important to you? We need public support at a meeting to be held at:

THE PRESTIGE INN SUNDAY AUGUST 7TH AT 9AM

Would you like to leave a gift to your community which goes on giving forever?

The Outback Development had agreed in its original development proposal to restrict access in South Bay to motorized craft, leaving the bay for swimmers and non-motorized boat traffic only; they are now committed to an application for a 72 slip marina and 300 foot Log Boom Breakwater secured across the opening of South Bay on Okanagan Lake. This proposal is contrary to their existing agreement with the city, which council reaffirmed earlier this month. In a recent Canadian Geographic Magazine article, it was said that 87% of the shoreline of Okanagan Lake that is able to be developed has already been developed. The Okanagan Basin Water Board followed this report with only 43% of the natural landscape remaining and development growing at a rate of 2% every year.

CALL US AT 250.542.8677

How does this affect you? This and other similar developments will degrade public access to the shore of Okanagan Lake, and potentially other B.C. lakes.

We’ll show you how!

In addition, the shoreline kokanee spawning beds which have traditionally existed in South Bay for millennia have been and will continue to be degraded by any intensive waterfront shoreline development, especially in this particular case, by that of a substantial powerboat marina. Should we be allowing high density residential developments to take over whole portions of the lake for their exclusive use? Many of their occupants are only here for two or three weeks annually, and such development would deny year round access to lakeshore neighbours and the general public. Please come and join us at the Prestige Inn on Sunday August 7th at 9AM.

“We’re having a baby!” Moderately Confused

Bridge by Phillip Alder Settle for nine; do not be greedy A.N. Other’s latest drop of wisdom is, “One of the weaknesses of our age is our apparent inability to distinguish our need from our greed.” At the bridge table, we know our need: the number of tricks required to make or break the contract. But sometimes greed, especially the desire for overtricks, causes us to lose sight of our need. This deal catches out the greedy. South is in three notrump. West leads the heart six. What should declarer do? With a singleton, North wondered if four spades or five diamonds would be better than three no-trump. However, when South

denied a four-card major, North sensibly settled for three no-trump. It is usually easier to win nine tricks in the no-trump game than 11 in five diamonds. South starts with only four top tricks: three spades and one heart. There are other winners available: a second in hearts, four in diamonds and one in clubs. Matters do not look so testing, and since West has apparently led from the heart king, there is a natural reaction to play low from the dummy at trick one. However, if East is psychic, that is fatal. He wins with his king and shifts to the club jack. Suddenly South loses one heart, one diamond and three clubs to go down one. Instead, suppose declarer wins with dummy’s heart

ace and plays on diamonds. That would get him up to eight winners, and he must collect a ninth in either hearts or clubs. Also, for experts, an overtrick can be found by squeezing East in the majors. Carefully count your winners and plan the play.

50 PROUD YEARS IN VERNON Bring your family to enjoy a free event complete with kid’s activities, free snacks and a host of experts to answer your BC Hydro questions. Saturday, August 13, 11:00 am – 2:00 pm BC Hydro Regional Office 1401 Kalamalka Lake Rd, Vernon Join the conversation as we reflect on the past 50 years in our community and look forward to a clean energy future with projects like Smart Meters and improvements to Hugh Keenleyside Dam.

Tree removal costs trimmed Black Press

In order to help private property owners with the mitigation of wildfire threatened areas caused by pine beetle, the District of Lake Country will be subsidizing the costs of tree removal and disposal. The multi-year pine beetle mitigation project will begin in Carr’s Landing with interested property owners completing an application form and undergoing a site inspection of their property to determine the amount of work required. Once site inspections are complete owners will receive a cost estimate and can then decide if they wish to continue with the mitigation work. Application forms are available on the district’s website (www.lakecountry.bc.ca) and at the Lake Country municipal office. For more information, call the Lake Country Fire Department at 250-766-2327.

BC Hydro has been working on behalf of British Columbians for generations. We’ve been a part of your community, created job opportunities, and kept the lights on for fifty years. Many of our facilities were built decades ago—like Hugh Keenleyside Dam in 1968—and they have helped to usher in an era of abundant, clean, reliable energy for our entire province. Current BC Hydro Regeneration projects, such as spillway gate improvements at Hugh Keenleyside Dam, will update and expand our aging infrastructure, introduce new technologies, support conservation and also set the stage for increased industrial development and economic opportunities throughout B.C.

For 50 years, BC Hydro has been providing clean, reliable electricity to our customers. B.C. continues to grow and so has our need for power. Today, we are planning for the next 50 years by investing in new projects, upgrading existing facilities and working with our customers to conserve energy through Power Smart.

#HERRYVILLEARTISANSARESTILLINBUSINESS Submitted to The Morning Star

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Helen Kovacs, left, and Debbee Werner work on the little shack behind Frank’s General Store, which is now the Cherryville Artisans Shop.

In the winter of 2000-2001, Debbee Werner was talking with Rick Fairbairn, then owner of Frank’s General Store in Cherryville, pondering somewhere to sell locally handcrafted wares that coming summer. “Why not use the cabin?� was Fairbairn’s response. The 20-by-12-foot cabin, built on the same property as Frank’s General Store more than 40 years prior, had housed a number of families and hunting parties over the years, but had been sitting vacant for many more and was very run down. Over to the little building Fairbairn and Werner went, and not daunted by the icicles hanging from the ceiling inside, Werner was inspired. After convincing fellow local artisans, Greg Baker, Shiel Mooney and Helen Kovacs, that this was a good idea, the Cherryville Artisans’ Shop was conceived. And after four months of extensive and intensive repairs, building, landscaping, painting, promotion and marketing, the shop held its grand opening May 19, 2001. More than 600 people crossed the threshold on that May long weekend, despite the inclement weather. “That little shop and all the special events were my whole life for six years; then in the

seventh year, I found true love and a new life,� said Werner, who left the business in 2008, making Kovacs the sole proprietor. “I got to share much magic and goodwill with thousands of people during that time, as well as sell mountains of local art and crafts. It meant the world to me, and I am still blessed to sell my work from there, thanks to Helen.�

“The quotes in the guest book over the years say it all for me — so many great comments from people from so many different places.� — Shiel Mooney As well as being astounded by the variety and quality of the arts and crafts inside the little shop, visitors have loved the grounds: the mural celebrating the four seasons painted on the shop’s outside walls, the pond made out of a bathtub, and the funky flower umbrella, actually a repainted satellite dish used as a flying saucer in a parade promoting the opening of the shop.

It was later joined by the two giant mushrooms. “The Cherryville Artisans’ Shop quickly became quite famous. It was featured on TV and in local newspapers and the response was gratifying knowing that it was drawing people from out of town to little ol’ Cherryville,� said Werner. Special events regularly started seeing attendance of around 1,200 to 1,500 people. “The quotes in the guest book over the years say it all for me — so many great comments from people from so many different places, including Cherryville and all over the world,� said Mooney. Kovacs continues to keep the shop open for business — currently on summer hours, seven days a week, from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. –– and the Cherryville Farmers Market can be found there every Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. “Ten years in business; I want to thank all of you for your support and patronage,� said Kovacs. The Cherryville Artisans Shop celebrates its 10th anniversary during the Cherryville Farmers’ Market Roots & Beets Festival, Saturday, Aug. 13 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, contact Helen Kovacs at (250) 5470020, or visit the website at www. cherryvilleartisans.com.

Exactly why The Smurfs was missing that nostalgic feelgood vibe was lost on me for a while, that is, until I took note of the film’s director –– a guy by the name of Raja Gosnell. He’s the man behind Scooby Doo, Beverly Hills Chihuahua and a handful of other family flicks that mash talking animals with unfunny jokes to make less-thaninspiring tales. Gosnell doesn’t adapt cartoons into live action features, he simply makes live action features nothing more than cartoons. With this guy around, suddenly Gargamel isn’t the biggest problem on the block. Not that, quality filmmaking aside, The Smurfs doesn’t give it the old Smurf try. Famous voices are brought in (I really thought Jonathan Winters was a sweet choice for Papa Smurf, George Lopez makes for an animated Grouchy Smurf, and Katy Perry scores probably the most borderline gag of the flick, admitting that she “kissed a Smurf and liked it...” Get it?), and Hank Azaria goes typically over-

Neil Patrick Harris jams with those little blues dudes known as The Smurfs in the new film of the same name. the-top as the bad guy. Still, for a movie that takes pride in being blue all over, the concept is 100 per cent bland vanilla. The plot has a few of the Smurfs, while (as usual) being chased by Gargamel (Azaria), getting sucked through a magic portal into New York’s Central Park. Through a series of misadventures, they wind up in the apartment of a frenzied Manhattan ad executive (Neil Patrick Harris) and his pregnant wife (Jayma Mays). Gargamel and his devious cat hunt for them, find them, chase them, lose them, find them again, chase them again, lose

them again, look for them once more, find them, chase them... See a trend here? Any effort for The Smurfs to be genuinely charming is lost in the film’s obvious efforts to sell Happy Meals. The story, the script and the execution is uncreative and, quite frankly, pretty lazy. That said, your kids will inevitably dig it. It has a relatively short running time, and the pace, seeing as every second scene is a tiny blue creature running away from a cat, is obviously swift. But as a kid who once loved The Smurfs, I’m more than a bit disappointed. Better put, I’m blue.

VERNON FILM SOCIETY Summer film season continues August 15 with Beginners. The film imaginatively explores the hilarity, confusion, and surprises of love through the evolving consciousness of Oliver (Ewan McGregor). Oliver meets the irreverent and unpredictable Anna (Mélanie Laurent) only months after his father Hal (Christopher Plummer) has passed away. This new love floods Oliver with memories of his father who – following 44 years of marriage – came out of the closet at age 75 to live a full, energized, and wonderfully tumultuous life. The upheavals of Hal’s new honesty, by turns funny and moving, brought father and son closer than they’d ever been able to be. Now Oliver endeavours to love Anna with all the bravery, humour, and hope that his father taught him. All films screen at the Vernon Towne Cinema at 5:45 and 8 p.m. Advance tickets ($7) are on sale one week in advance at the theatre and The Bean Scene.

Artists trailblaze through area as part of Routes and Blues Enderby/Kingfisher area hosts stop on new outreach project Morning Star Staff

An outreach project from the Salmon Arm Roots and Blues festival is taking trails, tunes and culture and uniting them in rural Shuswap communities. This year something new and exciting is taking place in the Shuswap region that will give the world the chance to experience some of the best and most beautiful features of the area. The unique event called Routes and Blues runs from Aug. 11 to 16, and will be comprised of a series of satellite concerts as the final element in a daily itinerary of activities located en route to the rural community. “The idea is to introduce guests and locals alike to the wondrous elements of the Shuswap and bring them together under a common passion: music,” said Routes and Blues coordinator Kate Beauchamp. “This is the first year that the Shuswap will host such a festival and it’s already promising to set the bar high for future events throughout the province.” Without missing a beat, Routes and Blues has arranged a lineup of acts that will be a feast for the senses. Up-and-coming artists such as Aaron Nazrul and the Boom Booms, multiple Juno Award winning Alpha Yaya Diallo as well check out

“For those that like digging their hands into the Earth’s fertile soil, there will be numerous animal and agricultural activities,” said Beauchamp. Thrill seekers will also find activities in-store for their tastes including zip-lining and various aquatic adventures. The Shuswap Trail Alliance has followed suit by arranging daily hikes each afternoon that will feature epic sights such as the waterfalls at Albas Falls Provincial Park and amazing avian predators that call the Enderby Cliffs home. “Each of the local groups will fire up their grills and ovens to offer a pre-concert meal as a great source of fuel for the hungry hikers and as a fundraising opportunity for the community,” said Beauchamp. Routes and Blues comes into the Enderby area Aug. 12. A hike up the Enderby Cliffs will take place at 1 p.m. (Call Beauchamp at 250833-4096 to book a spot.) A community meal featuring pulled pork, and a concert by Rumba Calzada, will take place that evening at the Kingfisher Hall (33 kilometres east of Enderby where the Shuswap River meets Mabel Lake.) The meal starts at 5 p.m. and cost is $12. (Tickets must be purchased in advance at Ashton Creek General Store or call 250838-2122 or 250-838-6200 to make reservations.) The concert starts at 7 p.m. and tickets are $20 (cash) at the door. More information on Routes and Blues is available at www.routesandblues.ca.

VCAC honours instructor of the month AMANDA NEMETH Special to The Morning Star

Each month, the staff of the Vernon Community Arts Centre gets together to pick an instructor who we are super excited about, and we feature them and their work in our centre gallery. The instructor must have taught within a six month Buck Striegel time-frame (either before or upcoming) and perform outstandingly in their classes or in their work for the Arts Centre. We are so thrilled to announce our very first Instructor of the Month for the month of August. For this new and exciting initiative, who better than a new and

exciting instructor? Buck Striegel moved here from California, and has 28 years of experience as a potter. Gearing up for his first class, Beginner’s Pottery I earlier in July, we were all really excited to see what his unique eye for functional but beautiful pottery would bring to the classroom, and the results were outstanding. Buck’s class was a mix between beginners and experienced potters looking for extra direction and tips — and by day two, each and every student was firmly addicted to clay, and confidently throwing gorgeous bowls, plates, pots and more. Buck took a lot of time with each student in order to make sure that they are given the knowledge and experience needed to continue creating pieces. Buck continues to be a great help to his students and other studio users, taking

up his own working time to help show others proper techniques and easier ways to complete their projects. He offers such great and unique insights and is very passionate about art. Congratulations, Buck! We are so very lucky to have you as an instructor here. Buck will be teaching another Beginner’s Pottery class from Aug. 8 to 12. If you would like more information or have any questions about Buck, his classes, or any other classes offered by the Vernon Community Arts Centre, we would love to hear from you! We are at 704A Highway 6 in Polson Park.

Time to ‘rescue’ step-daughter

D

ear Annie: I married my wife, “Debbie,” more than a decade ago. I genuinely believe we were brought together by divine providence. The only thing that troubles me is our kids — Debbie’s children from her first marriage. They didn’t get off to a great start — the biological father is a deadbeat dad, philanderer, alcoholic and a repeat-offender criminal. I wish I had been there from the start, but that’s the way it goes. I’ve had a lot of catching up to do. Kathy Mitchell & Marcy Sugar Debbie’s son is terrific — smart, friendly, talented and putting himself through college. The daughter, however, is a walking soap opera. She’s had two kids (one at age 16), several abortions, multiple divorces and broken relationships, and she’s usually strung out on pills and pot. Her current boyfriend is a married man. The oldest granddaughter lives with her father, who married someone else and has built a solid family. The younger granddaughter (age 11) lives with her mother. The kid does all the cooking, housekeeping and grocery shopping. My stepdaughter even tried to get the girl to fake a urine sample for a drug test. My wife and I are at the end of our rope. We cannot endure anymore of this

woman’s drama. We know we can’t fix her, so right now, all we want to do is rescue our granddaughter before her life is ruined. I feel like I’m aiming a squirt gun at a forest fire. How can I help my family? — Stepfather of a Train Wreck Dear Stepfather: Is the father of this child capable of caring for her? If so, you should encourage him to ask for custody. Barring that, you and your wife ought to consider petitioning for guardianship of your granddaughter. The best way to “rescue” this child is to get her out of her mother’s home and into a stable, loving environment. Please make every effort to do so. Dear Annie: My husband and I have been together for 25 years, and the entire marriage has consisted of his continuous lies about money, gambling and drinking. The latest adventure is his obsession with Internet porn and singles websites. We attended counseling individually and as a couple. He knew these things were ruining our marriage and vowed over and over to change. Instead, he played me. He would change just long enough for me to forgive him. But I have stopped playing his game. We share a house, and that’s about it. Years ago, girly magazines were just pictures. Today, there is streaming video of real people who call you by name and can even contact you. After I read the conversations my husband had with other women, any intimacy went out the

window. He wonders now why I had a hard time showing him affection. Guys need to stop and think with their hearts and not their computers, and realize the permanent damage these things can do to a marriage. — Over and Out Dear Over: We agree that Internet porn is a huge problem these days, creating intimacy and trust issues in relationships. Your husband also has other problems and seems unwilling to work on them. So we have to ask — why are you still with him? Please give some serious thought to your alternatives. They might be more attainable than you think. Dear Annie: This is for “At the End of my Tether in South Dakota,” who is frustrated with her daughter’s filthy room. The easiest way to deal with this is to tell the daughter that her room is her own business, but she may not have anything in there that can bring vermin into the house. This means no food in her room, and the trash needs to be emptied regularly. Mom should keep the door closed and let the daughter be a slob, but draw a line where it affects the sanitation of the house. It is not about the daughter. It is about health and safety. — Ventura, Calif. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Dogs invited to join the Cat Patrol Union KATHERINE MORTIMER

“There’s a whole section on how we as bloggers can be animal advocates.” Conference participants will learn things such as how to be better bloggers, how to create better pictures and videos, how to use e-mail marketing, and learning about tools for increasing traffic. “And, while you’re learning all of this, you’ll network, laugh, win prizes, meet new friends, meet sponsors you always wondered about, have a lot of fun, and eat cheesecake,” according to the BlogPaws website. “And, in the midst of it all, you’ll be part of the BlogPaws’ Be the Change for Pets movement — adding your voice and your participation to helping deserving shelters. “No other social media conference does what BlogPaws does. No other social media conference combines education with giving back,

Morning Star Staff

A quick Google search of pet blogs turns up more than 70 million listings. Yes, million. So it would seem that Lisa Taron is on to something. Known as The Pet Book Lady, Taron started blogging a few years ago, detailing the antics of her beloved dog, Oscar while promoting her online scrapbooking business. In a few weeks, she heads off to BlogPaws, the annual pet bloggers conference in the U.S. “I’ve been blogging for years after a friend told me about it. I’m not a computer savvy person, but I got a how-to book and just started,” said Taron, an illustrator whose artwork can be seen throughout her blog, which currently has about 3,000 readers. “Pet blogging is huge — some people write about their pets, some write on their pets’ behalf.” Taron said the power of social media is enormous but a strong underlying commitment for many of the bloggers is animal welfare and pet rescue. “We blog because we want to spread awareness on pet ownership and responsibility, on rescue animals,” she said. “We are all such pet fanatics.” To help raise the funds she needs to attend the BlogPaws conference, Taron has come up with something she calls The Cat Patrol Union. Membership in the Cat Patrol Union is free, but those living in the U.S. and Canada can purchase a Membership Pack for only $5, for which they will receive an official union card, an ID tag, a fridge magnet and a welcome card from the head of the CPU, Oscar Taron. “It started because I’ve always joked that Oscar was head of the Cat Patrol Union. Taron’s goal is to sell 300 memberships, which will give her the ability to sell ad space on her blog, with all

Lisa Taron, with Oscar, otherwise known as head of the Cat Patrol Union, which Taron said is all in fun and “...by no means do we wish any ill will to cats. In fact, Oscar likes cats. Just won’t admit it publicly.”

“There’s a whole section on how we as bloggers can be animal advocates.” — Lisa Taron proceeds going to animal rescue. Taron has supported Furever After Small Dog Rescue based in Qualicum Beach and is also planning on help-

BIBLE BASICS

NAIL Isa. 22:23: “Eliakim, fastened by God as a nail (stout peg to display article of great glory) in a sure place” is a beautiful Àgure of Christ. “The words of the wise are as goads, or as a nail fastened by the masters of assemblies,“ Eccl. 12:11. The word of the only wise Deity when incarnated is therefore Àtly represented by a nail fastened in a sure place. The ‘sure place’ is Yahweh’s holy place in Jerusalem, a peaceable, quiet and established habitation.

B.C. loses residents to Alberta TOM FLETCHER Black Press

B.C. recorded a slight net loss of people migrating to other provinces in the first quarter of 2011, according to preliminary data compiled by Statistics Canada. B.C.’s total population continues to grow, reaching more than 4.5 million as of April 1. But for the first quarterly period since 2003, the number of people moving to other provinces exceeded those moving from other provinces into B.C. The net loss was only 98 people, with 12,598 people moving to B.C. and 12,696 moving out in the first three months of the year. B.C. experienced consistent net loss through interprovincial migration from 1997 to 2003, an oftencited statistic in B.C. political debates about the effect of NDP government policies in the province during the

1990s. B.C. saw its largest net loss of 893 people to Alberta, with 6,704 people going east and 5,811 moving west in the first three months of 2011. B.C. recorded net gains of 372 people from Saskatchewan and 442

from Manitoba from January to March. BC Stats, which tracks the figures, warns that preliminary figures are estimates and won’t be finalized until September. International immigration continues to add to B.C.’s popula-

tion, with a net 7,328 immigrants arriving in B.C. in the first quarter of this year. That’s 15 per cent of the total immigration to Canada during that time, with B.C. holding its third-place position behind Ontario and Quebec.

B.C.’s population grew by 47,814 people during the 12 months prior to April 1, with a quarter of the growth due to natural increase – births minus deaths – and most of the remainder moving here from other provinces.

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Russell Lee Anderson, a beloved and devoted husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend peacefully on July 30th, 2011 with his family by his side. He is survived by his wife Margaret (Buddy), daughter Deborah Lee, sons Russell Jr. (Donna), David (Jody) and Mark (Julie), and grandchildren Katherine, Eric and Sophia and his sister Eileen. Born in New Westminster, Russell was the fourth son of a large family of 9 children. In 1941 at the age of nineteen he joined the Royal Canadian Navy and was sent to Halifax, the first time away from his family and hometown. He saw active duty during WWII as a signal coder on several ships; he became an officer and an officer trainer during his service. On February 14th 1947 he married Margaret (Buddy) Hoskin; his loving wife and friend of 64 years. Russ received a BA and B.Ed from UBC and a MA from the University of Western Washington and became a secondary school teacher and counsellor in Surrey/White Rock. He also completed the Radiological Defence Officer program with the Department of National Defence. Russ was an enthusiastic seeker of knowledge in many subjects. He loved music, played several instruments and his singing virtuosity was well recognized by all who new him. A “Science Guy” at heart as well as an astute business man... he built the Rodeo Drive-in and started the first Christmas tree farm in the Lower Mainland along with numerous business enterprises. In the early 80’s Russ and Buddy “retired” to living in Desert Hot Springs and “ the Lake” at the Lawrence Beach in Vernon, B.C where they had been summering at their place for over 40 years. They enjoyed their time in both places making great life long friends. Russ will be sorely missed; our many fond memories will live on forever in our minds and hearts. His spot at the head of the table will be always! Thank you for the food we eat Thank you for the birds that sing Thank you God for everything.

A reflection of Russ’s life will be held at “the cabin” @ 61 Lawrence Lane, Vernon, B.C. on Saturday, August 13th from 1pm to 3pm. A Lower Mainland celebration will be held at a later date. Notes may be sent to deblee.anderson@gmail.com or mjanderson0623@gmail.com Arrangements are in the care of Vernon Funeral Home 250542-0155.

Emil Ludwig Klinger

Robert John Tilbert passed away peacefully on July 31st, 2011 in Vernon Jubilee Hospital at the age of 86 years. Robert was born and raised in Saskatchewan. Most of his working life was spent in sawmills and in the bush. On May 4th, 1944, he joined the army where he participated in a variety of specialized training opportunities. During February of 1945, he boarded ship at Halifax, Nova Scotia and arrived in Aldershot, England two weeks later where he continued to take specialized tank operations training. Robert was then off to Belgium and Holland. In Germany he served eleven months as occupation force (police patrol). Robertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s return to Canada during May of 1946 once again found him working in a sawmill and the bush and then later as a mechanic. Due to ill health, Robert and Bernetta relocated to Lumby during 1980. The retirement years afforded travel opportunities to Holland, Belgium, England, parts of BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan and the USA. Robert is lovingly remembered by his beloved family: wife, Bernetta (nee: (Rex); grandsons: Lance, Boen); sons, Vernon (Juli) and Lee; daughter, Lorna (Len); Lee and Cole (Jen), Leet and Cavan; Cavan; granddaughters: granddaughters: Nancy (Cory), Kim, Vanessa, and Ruby; great granddaughter, Kess; great grandsons, Jaden, Colby, Austin and Slayde; sisters: Eileen McMillan (Bill), Freda Hilliad, Edith Boen, Laura Scheller, and Bernice Langdon (Lenard); brother, Emerson (Johanna); extended family and friends. There will be a Graveside Service held at the Lumby Cemetery on Saturday, August 6th, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. A reception will follow in the Lumby Legion Hall. In lieu of ďŹ&#x201A;owers, those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Robert may do so to the Royal Canadian Legion, 2016 Miller Street, Lumby, BC V0E 2G0.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of an amazing woman, our mother, Kaija. She died Thursday June 21 at 2:08 pm of complications due to a fall at the age of 84. Kaija was the 3rd of 6 children born in Kemi, Finland. At the age of 30 she immigrated to Canada with her surviving husband, Gosta B Richt, of 63 years and the Âżrst two of their Âżve children. We will remember our mother most for being a tough, stubborn, fussy, loving mom with a twinkle in her eye. She loved a good laugh and enjoyed anyone that would join in on one with her. She was a devoted, wife and friend and fought tirelessly to defend her children. She enjoyed traveling, spoke three languages and was an amazing all around â&#x20AC;&#x153;Super Momâ&#x20AC;?. She and our father ran a successful business, managed to keep an immaculate house and still have time to volunteer at her church. Her love was gardening, knitting, baking, chocolate, being with her children and bragging about them. Her greatest legacy is connected to experiences while running the family business, Sidney Personal Care Home with dad in Sidney, BC. She was a progressive business woman that stood strong to insure the quality of care was unsurpassed. She will be remembered best by her former employees as a tough woman who loved to keep the facility clean, the residents walking and everybody laughing, especially herself. She is survived by her husband Gosta, their 5 children; Daughter Rita Bechthold of Hegansburg, BC her husband Denis and their children Christine and Dion; Son Christer Richt in Sidney, BC, his wife Virginia and his kids Shauna Mae, Bjorn and Rusti; Daughter Anita Black in Coldstream, BC, her husband Colin and their children Ryan and Clint: Daughter Lena Brion in Vista California her husband Burton and their children Andrew and Zachary; and son Roy Richt in Fort St John, BC and his wife Shelley and their newborn. She also leaves behind 5 great grand children. We will greatly miss her laughter. We love you MOM!! A Memorial Service will be held at the Vernon Seventh-Day Adventist Church Saturday August 6, 2011 at 5pm.
