Moo-ving experience for TSN crew ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff

Armstrong’s Kraft Celebration Tour launched in Spallumcheen Thursday. Literally launched. TSN Sportscentre anchors Dan O’Toole and Jay Onrait spent Thursday morning at Gerald Luttmerding’s Back Enderby Road farm catapulting pumpkins and milking cows. The duo met citizens at Askew’s in the afternoon and went for a skate at the Hassen Arena with the Raggedy Rollers roller derby squad, all part of the fun that will be shown on today’s 3 p.m. live Sportscentre broadcast from downtown Armstrong. “I have never in my life launched a pumpkin,” said the six-footfive Onrait, who joined the 1st Armstrong Scout Scoutinators’ pumpkin launch team. Wearing a harness at the front, Onrait, pulled by 10 members of the scout troop, launched three pumpkins (donated by Clarence Glaicar of the Pumpkin Patch in Spallumcheen) close to a target. O’Toole was with the RCMP Youth Catapult Team, whose first effort was, uh, well... “Lame-o,” yelled Onrait, after the pumpkin went considerably less distance than Onrait’s crew. Clad in orange T-shirts, sunglasses and hard hats, the duo were then introduced to the Pumpkinator, a hydraulic-aided cannon created by operators Glen Paull and Dan Hopkins. Each anchor loaded a pumpkin into the cannon, and tried to hit Michael Luttmerding and friends’ 1991 Mazda 323 Hatchback parked 1,000 feet off in the distance. “Hit that car, hit that car,” the anchors had the crowd of close to 50 people on hand chanting, and they did come close, launching one pumpkin to within about 100 feet of the car. O’Toole and Onrait were driven to Luttmerding’s farm from downtown Armstrong, accompanied by Mayor Chris Pieper, in Vic Douglas’

O’Toole, who grew up on a pig farm, and Onrait, a native of Athabasca, Alta., were both milking cows for the first time in their lives, and were introduced to Tyra and Bunni, Holsteins who aren’t used to being milked late in the morning. “Be gentle,” pleaded O’Toole as he and his partner were given brief milking instructions from Luttmerding. Clad in green gum boots, O’Toole was declared the milking champ as Tyra had all four teets going to easily defeat Bunni and Onrait. “I’ve got enough for coffee,” deadpanned Onrait, who ended up

taking a swig of his milk from his milking pail. The anchors will broadcast their 3 p.m. show today live from downtown Armstrong and the public is welcome to attend and be part of the crowd. Kraft Celebration Tour festivities kick off on Pleasant Valley Boulevard in downtown Armstrong at 1 p.m. with plenty of activities for all ages. The presentation of the $25,000 cheque from Kraft to the local organizing committee will take place on the main stage at 2:30 p.m. After the 3 p.m. show, there will be an opportunity to meet the anchors and get autographs in the TSN tent.

Man still missing near Cherryville RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

The search for a missing man near Cherryville will resume on the weekend. It’s anticipated members of Vernon Search and Rescue will be at Monashee Creek Saturday to look for a 20-year-old man who fell down an embankment Aug. 13 and was swept away by the creek’s current. “Our priority is the family,� said Leigh Pearson, search manager, of

trying to find the man. The man was hiking with Daniel Lovegrove, 21, of Peachland, one kilometre northwest of the Gold Panner Campground. Lovegrove also fell down the bank and he died from his injuries. Search and Rescue volunteers conducted a reconnaissance mission Thursday. “They were going to figure out Lovegrove a better way into the area,� said Pearson.

“There are a couple of areas we have searched but we want to search them again. It’s challenging to get into because of the steepness and fast moving water so we’re looking for another way so we don’t have to use the ropes.� This is the second time this year that Search and Rescue members have been focused on Monashee Creek. In May, a 31-year-old Vernon man went missing in virtually the same part of Monashee Creek after he apparently went into the creek to retrieve his dog. He has not been located.

Blaze roars through Enderby area barn RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A stubborn blaze became a full-time job for Enderby’s volunteer firefighters. An 11-person team spent more than eight hours tackling a fire that roared through a barn/workshop on Dunwoodie Road just after 1:30 a.m. Tuesday. “They put in 150 per cent,” said fire chief Kevin Alstad of the crew. “They didn’t stop

until it was done.” The structure was fully involved when the firefighters arrived at the site on Splats’in First Nation lands. “Shortly after we got there, the roof came down,” said Alstad. Water had to be trucked in but the biggest challenge was the amount of material inside the building. “There was a tractor, welders and household goods,” said Alstad. “Packed around it

was hay bales and we had to pull the bales out and they were all on fire. Some were green

inside so we had to peel them apart to get inside them to the fire.” Hot spots forced the

firefighters to visit the property a couple of times during the day. The cause of the

blaze is undetermined. “There is way too much damage and too much stuff there. It’s

too hard to tell,” said Alstad of trying to pinpoint the source of ignition.

A suspected thief with a hankering for sausage was arrested by Vernon RCMP Wednesday. Officers responded to an alarm at 2:30 a.m. from Ritters European House in the 4300 block of 31st Street. Upon arrival, police noticed a front window had been broken and entry gained to the business. “About three blocks away, one of our officers noticed a man carrying a blue plastic milk crate with numerous items in it,” said RCMP spokesperson Gord Molendyk. “When our officer checked the suspect, he noticed a large Gord Molendyk bulk sausage in the milk crate similar to what would be in the business from where the alarm was reported.” The suspect, a 23-year-old man, was arrested and taken into custody. He was slated to appear in court Wednesday to answer to charges of breakand-enter to several businesses in Vernon after items of food were also found in the container he was allegedly carrying.

Large goal within sight for foundation Morning Star Staff

A little bit more support is required to bring the North Okanagan largest-ever fundraiser to a successful conclusion. The Building a Tower of Care campaign at Vernon Jubilee Hospital is within $180,000 of its $7 million goal. “We hope there are generous people in the North Okanagan who will help us reach the $7 million,” said Sue Beaudry, director of development with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital

“It was an aggressive goal.” — Sue Beaudry Foundation. The campaign, which began three years ago, is raising funds for medical equipment for the new patient care tower. “We are very excited to be almost there,” said Beaudry, adding that the support of resi-

dents, businesses and service clubs has been overwhelming. “It was an aggressive goal so it’s rewarding to know the people of the North Okanagan agreed with us.” The campaign got a $200,000 boost dur-

ing the second annual Vernon Home Building Centre and Shepherd’s Home Hardware Charity Classic on the weekend. The event included a gala dinner and auction at the new tower Saturday and a golf tournament at Predator Ridge Golf Resort Sunday. During the gala, anonymous donations were received and then matched by philanthropist George Galbraith. That resulted in a total of $125,300.

The gala, which was held in the ambulance bay, was attended by 286 people. Interior Health Authority staff and family members volunteered their time to prepare and serve the

meal, which saved the foundation $10,000 in meal costs. CTV Vancouver anchor Mike Killeen was the master of ceremony for the evening. On Sunday, 128 golfers took part in the

tournament at Predator Ridge. The corporate challenge was won by Team Silver Star, including Michael Sherwood, Murray Smith, Norman Kruetz and Marty Steele.

Walking in officers’ shoes

I

t was a routine traffic stop. The police officer noticed the aging grey van did not have a back licence plate, a very valid reason to pull the van over. The officer slowly approached the driver’s side window, told the male driver why he was being stopped and asked to see his licence and registration. The driver complied, joking that this wife was supposed to have taken care of the plate and the insurance. The officer noticed that the man’s licence was also invalid. He told the driver he would be Roger Knox checking his licence through his computer and told the driver to stay in the car. As the officer approached his police cruiser, he sensed perhaps he shouldn’t turn his back to this van. It was an accurate hunch. The driver’s side door was opening and out stepped a man. Not tall in stature, but very muscular. The officer told the man right away, pointing his finger at him, to get back in the car. The man, shouting something about his wife, slammed both hands against the side of the van. “Get back in your car now, sir,” screamed the officer. The man returned to the van and pulled out a wooden baseball bat. He held it like he was professional slugger Albert Pujols with two hands down at the handle and over his head in a threatening position. He moved towards the officer, refusing to put down the bat and return to the vehicle. The officer, a rookie, had three weapons at his disposal: pepper spray, a baton and a gun. For some reason, he pulled the baton. The officer kept yelling at the driver to stop, put down the bat and return to the van. The man refused. The officer pulled out his pistol, hands trembling, sweat pouring profusely out of his chest

AT RANDOM

and pointed it at the man. “Please, sir, stop right now. Don’t make me fire my weapon.” The man kept coming, bat poised as if to swing at a fastball. The officer fired one shot. He was aiming for the chest, but hit him in the leg. The driver fell to the ground, dropping the bat. The officer felt horrible for having fired his weapon. The above scene happened on Aug. 4 in Chilliwack. I was the police officer. Const. Steve Henderson of the Chilliwackbased Pacific Regional Training Centre, where RCMP officers go once every three years for re-training, played the driver. I was one of three media given a chance to take part in this training, organized by the RCMP, as a chance to experience what real police officers go through on a regular basis. Led by Sgt. Tim Anctil, a 33-year RCMP veteran, we were given a 10-minute session on how to use the weapons. Anctil was behind each of us as the media played out different scenarios and would stop us when he could see things getting out of hand. “You really think that baton will work against the baseball bat?” he said to me, chuckling. I never realized during my five-minute scenario how close Henderson and I were to each other. Anctil suggested maybe I should retreat to find cover. Henderson was talking to me the whole time, but I never understood a word he said. All I saw was this well-built guy coming at me with a baseball bat and he wasn’t stopping or dropping the bat. My hands were shaking, I’m sure my legs were as well and I was sweating heavily because I was terrified. Anctil described firing the gun as a normal reaction to an abnormal situation. No argument from me. Even though it was only for one afternoon, I now believe I know how a lot of police officers feel on the job. I have more respect for what officers do, and I wouldn’t want to trade places with them for anything.

Energy Minister Rich Coleman has a new challenge. This time it’s BC Hydro, which has grown in size and cost with barely a glance from the Liberal government, which is charged with overseeing the Crown corporation. In its early days, it powered sawmills, pulp mills and other industrial establishments. However, in the last 25 years, Hydro has done little in the way of building. Most of its work has been upgrades to existing dams and generating facilities. The B.C. economy has changed dramatically in that time. Large industrial users are no longer the dominant force they once were. Hydro serves a wide range of customers, from large and small businesses to an ever-increasing number of residential customers. Under former premier Gordon Campbell, the government initially tried to break up Hydro, by separating the distribution and generating arms. While they have been rejoined, another aspect of government policy was to keep Hydro away from small run-of-river hydro projects, but commit it to buy their output at rates much higher than the electricity it produced itself. Hydro has proposed a 32 per cent rate increase, something that appalled new Premier Christy Clark. On appointing Coleman to the energy post, she asked him to review that plan. He appointed a committee and it came out with a report that recommends cutting the rate increase in half and reducing Hydro’s work force. Coleman will be looking over the report. He needs to recommend to cabinet a sound energy policy which will keep rates under control and keep low-cost and clean power key to B.C.’s economic development. — Langley Times

More beds needed at hospital

I

am writing this letter for people who like myself need health care in the City of Vernon and the North Okanagan. Many of those needing health care are those of retirement age. I feel that the government of British Columbia should commit to a date to complete the two acute care floors. I have seen personally the patients at Vernon Jubilee Hospital being forced to sleep in hallways because there are no beds for them. People who are dying are being forced into hallways. I find this disgusting, knowing that the B.C. government can ignore this but waste money on a new roof for a stadium, overpaid pensions, wages and bonuses, just to name a few, while the people of Vernon and the North Okanagan have to suffer. I personally am waiting for hip surgery. I am on anti-inflammatory medication and have been for quite awhile. CITY MUST FUNCTION Let's keep our roads wide and continue to improve traffic flow. Most people in our city use their personal vehicles to get all of their daily activities done. While biking may work in some instances, it doesn't work for groceries, picking up the kids from school, or even general trips into town. It is also a weather-based activity that can only be done comfortably a few months out of the year. Current demand in our city is for vehicle-based commuting. We should not be designing our roadways around the few that bike, but on the thousands that drive. Keeping our roads wide and increasing lanes where needed maintains good traffic flow, which is better for the environment and more efficient. Let's remember that the vehicles of today are not heavy polluters. Many are choosing to drive hybrid vehicles already and we are moving to other green technologies. We don't have to abandon the vehicle for future sustainability. I am not opposed to wider sidewalks, and practical bike lanes, provided that they don't

R

It is a proven fact that if these medications are taken for too long, they will cause all kinds of health issues. I have been told by a surgeon himself that he can do two or three hip replacement surgeries in one day. In the last while, two hip replacement surgeries have been performed in one month because there are not enough beds for the patients' recovery. I pay health care along with everyone else living in Vernon/North Okanagan every month so myself and the people who require health care are not getting what they pay for. To me, that is just not right. The government of B.C. should think a little about the people who live in Vernon and the North Okanagan and commit to opening the two shelled-in floors. It is not only the right thing to do, it has to be done now. Ron Taylor

remove parking areas or driving lanes. The path along 25th Avenue is a beautiful example of this. An example that I think doesn't work is 20th Street. Not only is there a multi-use path on both sides with poles in the middle of them, there is also a bike path on both sides narrowing the road. What does multi-use mean if there is a separate bike lane? Why not one multi-use path on one side for bikes and pedestrians and a wide two-lane road that allows parking? Let's not let all of our roads go the way of 20th. We need to speak up about this and make sure we make our city function well. Joel van der Molen

I appreciate how the City of Vernon evidently cares enough about all of its citizens to create an environment in which everyone can travel around town, regardless of their chosen mode of transport. Your assertion that "I think the bicycle lanes are more dangerous to the cyclist than using the regular road" is laughable. On July 23, I was riding along the bicycle-lane-free Old Kamloops Road when I was nearly hit by a truck pulling a fifth-wheel trailer. How close that driver was to taking away a year's worth of my training for Ironman Canada, or possibly my life, is not laughable. It was a frightening incident in which everything nearly changed for both me and that driver. Such a close call would not have happened if I were travelling in a bicycle lane. Thank you to the city for constructing bicycle lanes. I support the use of my taxpayers' money to build more in the future. Carol Davidson

CYCLISTS COUNT Re: L.M. Neufeld's letter "Road Projects Questioned" July 17. I wish to inform you and all of the other small-minded and intolerant citizens in this city who believe that those 'useless' bicycle lanes are a waste of taxpayers money that there is a large community of cyclists who are grateful for the construction of these lanes.

Floods force storm sewer review RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

A second storm has Enderby officials scrambling to prevent future flooding. Heavy rainfall descended on the community Aug. 10 and the storm sewers were unable to keep up with the amount of water. “It was pushing the manhole covers right off and boiling over,” said Mayor Dee Wejr. That led to water rolling into businesses and homes, similar to what occurred during a mid-July storm.

“We have to fix it. We owe it to the community.” — Howie Cyr “Some of the same people got flooded again,” said Wejr. Members of council met with city staff Monday to discuss the situation. “We will look at what we can do in the short-term and then look at the long-term,” said Wejr.

“We really don’t have an idea of cost but we have an engineer looking at what we can do.” Coun. Howie Cyr believes there may also be some longtime residents with expertise about local drainage. “Clearly we have to engage the community in discussions about

drainage,” he said. Cyr admits any significant upgrades to the storm sewer system could place financial pressure on the city and its largely residential tax base. “My gut feeling is it will be expensive but we can’t bury our heads in the sand,” he said. “We have to fix it. We owe it to the community.” Wejr points out that other communities in the Okanagan have also experienced flooding this summer. “These were major

The approval process for seniors housing is moving ahead in Lumby. Council issued a development permit Monday for a 46-unit residential care facility on Glencaird Street. “This is a big positive for the community,” said Coun. Lori Mindnich. “Those seniors in critical care won’t have to leave the community now.” The Interior Health Authority recently authorized inSite, Housing, Hospitality and Health Services to construct and operate the Monashee Mews facility with publicly funded residential care beds. It’s expected that construction will begin in November 2011, with the facility completed in November 2012. The front entry will be on Norris Avenue and 16 parking spaces will be available on the east and south sides of the building. There will be outdoor courtyards for the residents, including walking loops, shade structures and seating areas. The property is currently zoned senior citizens assisted living. “This zone was specifically created in 2007 and revised in 2010 to accommodate the proposed care facility,” said Michael Rosen, planning consultant, in a written report to council. Beyond providing care for seniors, Mindich is confident the facility will bolster Lumby’s economy. “There is bound to be jobs from it. They will need cooks, janitorial and laundry staff,” she said.

Cookin’ Up SUMMER

Two groups are hoping to make horse racing fashionable. The Junior Chamber of Commerce and Okanagan Equestrian Society are teaming up to introduce a new feature for Vernon Racing Days in 2012 at Kin Race Track, the oldest operating track in Canada (since 1893). The feature is called Ladies Day at Kin, with the idea being to revitalize racing days and focus on a new market segment of the race goers to raise extra funds to sustain racing at Kin Race Track. The idea is to have a social and stylish day out, reminiscent of European style such as at Aintree in England, or events in Australia. And even though it’s called Ladies Day, men are encouraged to take part as well. Race goers would arrive in full formal dress following a dress code. Men would wear tuxedos and top hats, while women would be required to wear fulllength or cocktail dresses and the mandatory hats. Along with the dress code, there will be wineries and breweries featured with white hat and restauraunteurs serving appies under white tents while listening to orchestral chamber music. Advanced tickets would be sold and there will be prizes for the top fashion. In order to prepare for the 2012 event, an open invitation is being made for people to show up at Vernon Racing Days Sunday in full dress code to help generate recognition of the future events. Horse racing gets underway at the 43rd Avenue track Sunday at 11:30 a.m.

Spitfire welcomed back to club CARA BRADY Morning Star Staff

The Army, Navy Airforce Veteran’s club invites the community to help celebrate the return of the full-size replica Spitfire plane to the top of the club building. The ribbon-cutting ceremony with a flag-bearing colour party and local dignitaries will take place Sunday at 11 a.m. at at 2500-26 Ave. The ANAF tried to buy an actual Spitfire aircraft in the late 1980s but was discouraged by the $90,000 price tag. The members did not give up. They approached Glen Fletcher to put his knowledge of designing and constructing boats to making a replica of the Spitfire. He came through and the original Spitfire replica was put in place in October 1993 and was a local landmark until Sept. 2010 when it was discovered to be damaged by rockthrowing vandals. The damage was so extensive that repairs were impossible. The Spitfire was completely rebuilt, even the pilot and propellers. The process involved the

A ceremony will be held Sunday at 11 a.m. to mark the return of the Spitfire plan to the Army, Navy and Airforce club in Vernon. dismantling of the original plane to duplicate the design, reconstruction and re-assembly of each section. Fletcher, 74, contributed countless volunteer hours on the reconstruction during the past 11 months. He was one of the three co-ordinators of the original construction 19

years ago which involved 2,840 volunteer hours. The replica is a full-size model of the Spitfire measuring 31 feet, 10 inches from nose to tail, with a wingspan of 37 feet. The model pilot is named Jackson Glen to honour the contributions of Jack Brash

Vernon

and Glen Fletcher to the project. The mannequin pilot is so realistic that a utility worker spoke to him on the back porch of Fletcher’s home. The letters and numbers on the plane were taken from the logbook of the Spitfire flown by the late Second World War pilot Phillip Bodnarchuk.

Lake Country seeks infrastructure funding RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff

Lake Country officials are looking for help to address aging infrastructure. Mayor James Baker met with Community Development Minister Ida Chong in Victoria Tuesday to discuss the financial deficit for sidewalks, roads, sewer systems and water lines. “If we did everything we need to do, we’re looking at a $250 million bill,” he said.

Because such costs are too onerous for Lake Country taxpayers, Baker insists there’s a need for the provincial and federal governments to come to the table. “Now is the time to start thinking about where the money will come from,” he said. “Municipalities must be able to count on at least applying James Baker for funds. If we could get onethird federal, one-third provincial and one-third municipal,

...and they’re off!

we could get a lot of things moving in the community.” Baker also wants assurances that municipalities will be treated equal. “Any funding or senior government programs must not go to just the large communities. We need it to go to the small communities as well,” he said. Chong was apparently open to Baker’s suggestions. “She won’t commit her government to anything until she goes through the finance ministry and caucus but she recognizes the need,” said Baker.

ARTHRITIS

MAGIC MOMENTS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a byproduct of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:  Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions #1 suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CAI tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ONCancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QCOthers write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister.

Budget cuts don’t impact weather office ALISTAIR WATERS Black Press

The plan to slash hundreds of jobs at Environment Canada will not affect the agency’s small Kelowna office. The man in charge here, Kent Johnson, manager of public weather services, was told the recently announced plan to eliminate 300 positions and affect 700 employees, or 11 per cent of the agency’s national workforce, will not have any short-term impact here. But he said given Ottawa’s order for every government agency to look for ways to reduce their budgets to help Ottawa find $4 billion in savings by 2014-15, there are no guarantees the local office will be spared from future cuts. Those mandated budget reductions are to start next year. The Okanagan

Environment Canada office, located on the UBCO campus, has just 15 people working there now and does not do any specific weather forecasting, said Johnson. Those duties were moved to Vancouver and Edmonton in 2005 when the workforce here was cut in half and the forecasting jobs moved out of town. Johnson said with the exception of one weather warning preparedness meteorologist — part of whose duties include dealing with the media — and a handful of information technology technicians, his staff mainly works on programs for the weather service. One of those is how to better interact with the public. Johnson said by next spring, Environment Canada wants to have what it is calling a national client engagement strategy in place.

“There are lots of things to consider when we have choices to make.” — Kent Johnson That will help the weather office gauge what sort of programs the public wants from

Environment Canada, how best to get information out to the public and how it can be tai-

lored to specific needs. He said up to now it has tended to be a one-way street with the weather office providing weather forecasts without much input from the public. “The question is how do we hear the voices of the people? There are lots of things to consider

when we have choices to make (about the information provided for the public.)” As for the current round of cuts, Environment Canada has said many of the positions to be elimi-

nated are currently vacant and it also hopes to meet its goal, in part, through attrition. While some employees will likely lose their jobs, others could be moved within the federal civil service.

Paddlers fire up Dragon festival Morning Star Staff

Blue skies and calm water set a stunning backdrop for a great day of racing at the Vernon Dragon Boat Festival and pledge drive Saturday at Kalamalka Lake. With more than 500 paddlers, and a large and enthusiastic community of supporters on the beach, the day was set for success. Racing over 500 metres, the lead positions of the boats changed often and the beat of each team’s drummer could be clearly heard as teams were urged along the course. Five local teams, including the Buoyant Buddies (breast cancer survivors), Dragon Riders, Poseidon’s Fury, Stussi-Skyriders and Excel Fitness joined a total of 20 teams for 21 races. Teams progressed through heats and excitement quickly built for the final rounds of racing. After many battles for the lead and numerous tight finishes, the women’s team Dragon in the Drink, and mixed team Outta-My Wake, both from Kelowna, won the championship trophies. The festival is now in the hands of local non-profit operators, Vernon Rowing and Paddling

Centre (VRPC) at Swan Lake and Go Rowing and Paddling Association of Canada. These organizations are also committed to giving back to other local charities through the events they produce and have teamed up with the Vernon Jubilee Hospital Foundation through the addition of a pledge drive. “To provide quality rowing and paddling programs in Vernon is so rewarding, but it doesn’t get any better when you can also leave a substantial legacy in our community,” said Lisa George, manager of VRPC. “This year’s festival has raised over $8,000 which will purchase four biopsy guns for Vernon Jubilee Hospital. “The Stussi-Skyride team were hands down the winners of the title of Top Fund Raising Team, raising $6,000 of the total and we are so proud of their efforts.” Steve Frisch, executive director of Go Row, said: “We have operated our centre on Swan Lake for 13 years and it is so exciting to see Vernon embrace the programs and events we provide. Our organization provides events which serve in excess of 14,000 people each year. To produce the Vernon Dragon

Allen faces tough test in Battlefield Fight League showdown DARREN HANDSCHUH For the Morning Star

for the North Okanagan’s Ryan Allen – he wanted whoever was the tougher opponent available. When contacted by BFL to compete on the mixed martial arts (MMA) card, Allen was given the choice of two opponents, and he chose the one who looked to give him the greatest challenge. This is Allen’s second fight with BFL. He won his amateur debut in January in a matter of seconds with a flurry of strikes. Allen, who is on the verge of receiving his purple belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu from Gracie Barra Vernon, will meet Seattle’s Hunter Orgill (2-2) on the Wesbild Centre card. The two will meet in the 205-pound amateur card. Orgill is stepping up in weight, having fought previously at 185. “I feel confident in my ground game

for sure,” said Allen, who has been training with Gracie Barra Vernon blackbelts Mario Deveault and Dave Rothwell. “I’ll start standing up, but they (coaches) want me to take it too the ground a little quicker. They have confidence in my ground game.” That confidence got a boost in February when Allen won the B.C. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Championships in his division and the open class. “The competition is why I’m doing it,” said Allen, who is mulling the possibility of a professional career in cage fighting. “I would like to go pro because the competition is harder.” It was that drive to compete that prompted Allen to choose the tougher opponent. “I have played lots of team sports, but with MMA, it is one-on-one. In the end, it

is just you and one other guy,” he said. Both Deveault and Rothwell have plenty of international BJJ competition experience and while Gracie Barra Vernon is not an MMA club, both stepped up to help Allen get ready for the fight. “He’ll be tough for anybody on the ground right now,” said Deveault. “His stand-up has improved since his last fight, which he won by TKO. If Ryan wants to take it to the ground, it will go the ground.” Allen, who earned the nickname Rhino because of his raw power, will be among three amateur bouts and eight professional scraps. The main event features Matt Baker (6-2) vs. Marcus Vinicios (5-6). Tickets are available through Ticketseller, (www.ticketseller.ca) and at the Vernon Performing Arts Centre box office.

Vipers high on Hetnik GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff

The winning team consisted of Jay Schultz, Warnes and Andrea Litz. Second spot went to Chris Grout, Kim Reid and Chris Densmore. There were 13 teams on Aug. 13, Cam’s favourite number.

Word of mouth can sometimes be as persuasive as anything a hockey scout can say. That was the case for defenceman Marc Hetnik Jr., the newest member of the Vernon Vipers. Hetnik, 19, is good friends with former Vipers Mike Collins and Garrett Noonan; the trio played high school hockey together with the Catholic Memorial Knights, a preparatory school in West Roxbury, near Boston. After listening to them talk about Vernon’s junior A program, and seeing them move on to play NCAA Division 1 – Collins is with the Merrimack Warriors and Noonan with the Boston University Terriers, and was drafted by the Nashville Predators in this year’s NHL Marc Hetnik Jr. Entry Draft – he started giving the B.C. Hockey League some serious thought. “They couldn’t say enough about how much they enjoyed themselves out there, how good the hockey was and how good the overall experience was. Just hearing that over and over again, I was anxious just to get the opportunity,” said Hetnik, a Brookline, Mass. product committed to the Terriers for the 2012-13 season. His father, also Marc, played with BU’s 1978 national championship team that went 30-2 and beat arch-rival Boston College Eagles in the championship game, the only time the two schools have met in an NCAA final. “I got some good genes, I guess,” grinned Hetnik, who was pretty much glued to the television during the Bruins’ run to the Stanley Cup this spring. “It was unbelievable. Everyone watched every minute of every game. You got 10 or 12 phone calls every night, people asking ‘Where are you watching the game?’ “Once they did win, the parade was unbelievable. It was a great series.” A natural athlete, the 6-foot-2, 180-pound Hetnik was captain of three different sports teams at Catholic Memorial – hockey, golf and lacrosse. “Hockey was always my passion,” said Hetnik, a point-per-game blueliner for the Knights, earning Catholic Conference all-star honours. “I like to have the puck on my stick. I like to

get the puck moving and make plays... just playing overall smart hockey and making everything easier on everyone else. “I’m looking forward to making my presence known out there. I want to get crackin’.” Vipers’ head coach Jason Williamson has yet to see Hetnik play, but likes what he’s heard. “He comes highly recommended from a number of different people we trust out east. He’s supposed to be one of the higher end guys in Massachusetts, and our program has a good reputation out there.” Hetnik will continue to work at Dexter Southfield School in Brookline before flying to Vernon at the end of August to report for main camp.

Controls draw Courvas crew Morning Star Staff

The Vernon Turn-Key Controls appear primed for the playoffs after earning a 2-2 draw against Courvas Wednesday night at the Salmon Arm Savings & Credit Union Sports Field. Turn-Key ended the regular season at 4-6-4, while Courvas went to 7-4-3. Turn-Key came out sizzling, but Courvas opened the scoring off of a highlight reel goal. Nearing the end of the first 45 minutes, TurnKey keeper Greg Douma stoned a Courvas player on a penalty shot. On the ensuing corner, TurnKey created a turnover and moved the ball smartly up the left wing before centre midfielder Nathan Tucker beat a defender and fed it to streaking NOU Co-Ed tournament MVP Pat Egan. Egan made no mistake and buried a shot in the bottom corner to equalize. Tucker, setting up a stellar play with a free kick from 40 yards out, led to a hard-working rebound goal by Brendan Love. The Salmon Arm squad fought back to tie it up, and both keepers played tough the rest of the way. Tucker and Douma shared the Red Robin Restaurant Man of the Match honours. The Davidson & Co. Dynamite FC sealed second place behind idle North Enderby Timber by shelling Nation of Domination Eagle Homes 5-0 in Salmon Arm. The Dynamite played with only 11 players and no subs with Seb Leck pulling the hat trick and Moe Singogo adding two goals. The 8-4-2 Nitros’ defenders put up a powerful wall to shut down the 7-6 NOD offence. Monashee Surveying brushed back Concept Physio 3-2 at Marshall #5 to leapfrog Turn-Key into seventh place in the nine-team loop. Matt KcKeown, Chandler Marsh and Darren Nobrega, on a nice volley in tight after a Jay Aarsen corner, handled the scoring for the 5-7-2 Surveyors, who got golden play from sweeper Ryan Sharp and defender Mike Aarding, obviously inspired by the birth of his son, Ashler. Enzo Paal replied for the Concept crew, who dipped to 6-8. The Gibson Cup quarterfinals go next Wednesday night.

Zone goes for gold Morning Star Staff

Okanagan Zone men’s soccer teams are playing for gold today at the B.C. Seniors (55+) Games in the Kootenays. The 55s were scheduled to meet Vancouver Island North in round-robin play Thursday in Casltegar. Both teams went into the game having already clinched gold-medal match berths. Wolfgang Bopp of Salmon Arm scored twice as the 55s opened the Games Wednesday morning with a 6-0 victory over the Kootenays. Vernon’s Jenne Huberts and Mahmoud AbdelKader, along with Kelowna’s Joe Jamison and Ken Wither, also scored in support of Allen Bensmiller. The 55s then shut down defending champion Vancouver Island South 3-0 on goals by Jamison (2) and Bopp, who helped set up Jamison’s markers. Bensmiller was busy in recording the shutout. Representatives from the North Okanagan also include Tim Penaluna, Denis Chabot, Harry Adam, Rich Zecchel, Erv Schuur and Mike Siemens. The 60s Okanagan team won both of its preliminary games – 1-0 over Kamloops and 3-0 over Vancouver Island South. They play in a gold-medal game against the zone they faced in round-robin action Thursday. Vernon’s Boris Pasieka and Felix Heinrich play on the 60s team.

Tennis instructor Birgit Gruner, a former German amateur champion, talks with students Wednesday at her Swan Lake court.

Gruner growing top tennis talent KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor

Blue balloons adorned the entrance to Birgit Gruner’s picturesque tennis camp court a few hundred feet from Swan Lake on Wednesday morning. Parents stopped in to pick up their kids, while others returned balls hit by Trevor Billows, a 20-year-old former student helping out his former coach and neighbour. The balloons, put up by her husband, Bob, celebrated the 15th year Gruner, a former German amateur champion, has been instructing in Vernon. She’s 58, looking fit and still getting a charge out of teaching the basics of the game. “It’s a great family sport,” said Gruner, a former kindergarten teacher blessed with the patience to teach a seven-year-old how to deliver a backhand volley winner. “The parents see their kids having fun and they may have played in high school so they start playing again. Sometimes, they jump in and play here.” Billows, a Fulton grad now studying to be an engineer, says Gruner was a major mentor. “She taught me tons, not just about tennis, but on how to be a better person, how to respect and treat people.” Gruner regularly plays some funfilled mixed doubles on Fridays with the likes of Ray Kimoto, Meryl Ogden and Gary Schimpl. She’s teaching close to 40 kids this summer, including five kids from one

nine-member Calgary family who bought a place on Kalamalka Lake. Nicholas Peloso, a strapping 15-year-old, showed some decent skill as he and three of his brothers played some doubles after a series of drills. His father James, who played some college tennis, urged his boys to take the lessons. “I’ve been doing it two weeks and it’s a fun sport,” said Nicholas, a 6-foot-2 all-around athlete. “I pick it up because I like badminton. She (Gruner) does a good job. I’m this good after just two weeks. I like that she doesn’t yell at you; she’s gentle.” Gruner has a scrapbook of photos and newspaper clippings which she treasures. “What I really like is when kids like Trevor, who are still involved in tennis, come by and play. I coached Hailey Crampton (on a scholarship with the Saginaw Valley State University Cardinals, an NCAA Division 2 school in Michigan) and Rose Brzostowski. She just got her teaching licence so she’s an instructor at the rec centre.” Gruner says she is careful not to put too much pressure on the younger kids since they can be intimidated by the size of the court. “You don’t want to push because that doesn’t get the kids anywhere.” At the end of camp, Gruner presents each player with a report card, complete with colourful graphics, showing they have been taught forehand, backhand shots, volleys and serves.

Kickers rule Masters North Okanagan soccer playoffs up next The Vernon Chick Kickers clinched first place in the North Okanagan Women’s Soccer Association Masters Division Tuesday night with a 6-1 stuffing of the Controllers at Marshall Field #5. The Masters Division playoff tournament goes Aug. 25-27. There are no playoffs for the Competitive Division. Tania Sladen jumpstarted the 13-3-2 Kickers’ attack with a great heads-up shot from 25 yards out, while Colline Johnson took a great feed from Jen Sorochuk and put a nice diagonal ball over keeper Michele Wernicke’s head for a second tally. Sorochuck then dished a superb through ball to Jenny Garnett, who danced her way in to close out the first-half scoring. Kelly Challen struck first in the second half on a nice give and go with Garnett before she stuffed it in the lower corner. Garnett and Challen rounded out the scoring. Midfielders Shuana Stenquist Monica Holbowski and Corrie Bauml were in top form with great ball distribution and pursuit. Kickers’ coach Mike Johnson received stellar showings from the dynamic defending trio of Marilynn Vanderdeen, Wendy Martens and Bridget Grant as they played with heart and soul keeping Controller striking chances on keeper Dawn Tucker to a minimum. The 9-5-4 Controllers scored two minutes into the final half with Jacquie Nuyens’ gorgeous header going top corner as she finished a 25-yard cross from Danielle Dunsmore. Michelle Embleton took over in goal in the second half, and made some great saves early before the Kickers counted three more goals. Said Controllers’ defender Brandie Hunter: “We’ll get our game back for the final league tourney. I just know it, I can feel it.” The Kickers finished ahead of the Salmon Arm Setter’s Pub with the Okanagan Impact third. The Impact (10-4-4) bowed 1-0 to the Shuswap Merlot with Reena Leupin scoring for the Impact.

United hold off Seasons Sista’s The Vernon Liquor Store North Okanagan United held back the stubborn Seasons Sista’s 3-2 to end the regular season at Marshall Field #4. Sista’s took the early lead with roadrunner Kim Sylvester capitalizing on a breakaway. The heat and lack of subs took its toll on the Sista’s and near the end of the half, Teresa Collins twice took advantage of the sun-blinded keeper Nicole Langner with balls over her head for a 2-1 lead at the break. Shelley Henry’s high-placed ball that ricocheted off the cross bar into the back of Langner’s head, ended up being the winner. The Sista’s made it close with another goal by Sylvester later in the half, on a hard, low blast off the post that went in off NOU keeper Sarah Kwantes’ hand. The Sista’s pressed hard for the equalizer, enjoying close calls as Gizelle Duquette just missed the top corner from outside the 18 when Kwantes made a great hand save. A corner by Andrea Zubot caused a goal-mouth scramble and a through ball to the far post just failed at the last second by Helen Clarke, while Sylvester missed on a breakaway after great feeds by Becky (Bubbles) Birbilis and Tarla Price. NOU (9-7-2) received great play from Tania Willett, who was an unstoppable force. Newlywed Rita Tedesco, now a calmer and stronger player, created many scoring changes and provided umpteen sweet ground passes for scoring chances.

Stellar runs were put in by Lena Dean, Carla Gibson and Mel Jacobs.

Drillers make most of full lineup With almost their entire team showing up, the Goplen Drillers made up for their lack of scoring last week with a 6-0 win over Monashee’s Pub at Marshall #3. Shawn Nickoli earned her third shutout of the season behind a solid defensive line of Vel Beaumont, Kulwinder Smith, Tracey Hill, Jodi Peshko and Nancy Nickoli. Lena Urquhart began the scoring spree off a nice pass from Kylah Bryde. Bryde then scored from a cross by Tina Garrison. The 6-8-3 Drillers’ third goal came from Garrison’s corner to forward Shelley Zupp, who headed the ball which deflected off the crossbar and landed in front of the net for a waiting Bryde, who buried in a hurry. In the second half, Garrison delivered a nicelyplaced through ball for Zupp who carried it in and converted low into the corner. Kelly Megyesi registered the best goal of her season when she stole the ball from a Monashee defender and blasted it in the net to make it 5-0. It was a solid team win with fabulous play from Chris Castrucow, Stephanie Curtis, Chrissy Gillespie and Karen Zupp and a perfect combination of solid defence, outstanding midfield and forwards finishing. The last goal of the night was the result of Garrison and Bryde working well together in the midfield, Bryde assisting Garrison’s goal. Lisa Lanaway was unstoppable with her competitive play and effective checking skills.

Blazers brush back Outlaws 2-0 In Competitive Division play, the AF Blazers pulled off a 2-0 win over the Little Tex Outlaws to end the season in a hard-fought battle Tuesday night at Marshall #2. The Blazers opened the scoring when Krista Ference blasted through the Little Tex defense. Shortly after, Ginger Nickoli feathered a pass through to Ali Clarke who denied Little Tex keeper Lori Phillips, who was playing injured. Jane Higgins and Amber Maltman were outstanding on the 3-9-3 Blazer defence, while Katie Hatten, making a debut appearance, Ally Cummings, Chelsea Ricketts and Jenny Hatten held the midfield. Eileen Pellicca was phenomenal and made several key saves in net for the Blazers. The back line of Stacey Cover, Kristy Anderson, Erica Francis and Christine Neilson had their work cut out for them with the Outlaws down a player, but did a great job of keeping Blazer scoring chances to a minimum. Anita Rea had a handful of close calls and set up several other offensive thrusts. Jasmine Whitling was amazing in the middle, moving the ball up the field and feeding it out wide to create opportunity. Sam Knight and Stephanie Stewart had great games up front but just couldn’t capitalize. Phillips was outstanding in net as the Outlaws finished at 9-6-1. Dr. Lee Dental Clinic/Checkers and the North Enderby Timber played to a scoreless draw at Marshall #2. Lisa Arrotta earned the shutout for the 10-4-2 Floss crew. Cary Smith and Taryn Lloyd shared the shutout for NET (2-14-1). “Everyone played amazing; it was above and beyond their best game of the season,” said NET coach Graham Ross. “Jackie Morneau played the best game I have ever seen her play. Not a single weak spot on the pitch for the Celtics.”

Riders hunt jumping honours Morning Star Staff

A quartet of riders from Abigail Equestrian in Vernon competed in the recent Milner Downs Hunter/Jumper horse show in Langley and achieved great success. Milner Downs is rated as an A circuit Equine Canada Gold horse show, featuring competitors were from all over B.C., Alberta and Washington State. The riders are coached by Erica Van Meenen, an Equine Canada certified coach who also competed. Highlights of the two weeks included Reserve Championship of the 2-foot-3 Hunter Division by 15-year-old Hailey Correale. Correale, riding her Leopard Appaloosa pony Spot the Difference, also placed regularly in the top ribbons in every class they entered, including many first-place wins in Equitation and Hunter Under Saddle classes. Julia Knopp, 16, aboard her Warmblood mare Cadence, received Championship of the 2-foot-3 Hunter Division, winning every class in that division. In addition, Knopp and Cadence competed in the 2-foot-6 Division with many strong showings both over fences and under saddle, placing in the top ribbons in all classes, including a first.

The host New Westminster Salmonbellies fired five unanswered goals then coasted to an 8-3 win over the Langley Thunder in Game 1 of Western Lacrosse Association playoff finals Wednesday at Queen’s Park Arena. The Salmonbellies’ Kevin Crowley and Tyler Crompton launched the onslaught with goals 23 seconds apart. Before the period was over, Crowley would have a hat trick while Corbyn Tao scored the other goal. New Westminster clamped down defensively for the remaining 40 minutes, as the teams each scored twice in the second period and once in the third. Salmonbellies’ netminder Tyler Richards celebrated his Leo Nicholson Award as the league’s outstanding goalie with a 32-save performance. New West fired 36 shots at Langley keepers Brodie MacDonald and Joe Bell. MacDonald, a Vernon native, was pulled 6:29 into the second period when New West scored its seventh straight goal. The best-of-seven series continues with Game 2 tonight at the Langley Events Centre. Game 3 goes Sunday in New Westminster.

While it is no secret that the Okanagan is a magnet for retirees, an unexplored issue is where the future lies for the younger generation, particularly university graduates. Do they stay after finishing their postsecondary schooling? Can they find work related to their studies? How many graduate and move on to seek employment? These are a few of the questions Emma Talbott hopes to answer. The UBC Okanagan campus graduate student, who is pursuing a master’s degree in interdisciplinary graduate studies, is embarking on a thesis that will identify the rate of student retention in the valley. “‘When I graduate, I have to leave the city,’ is what a lot of (my classmates) tell me,” said Talbott. “I want to find out if they actually left. I suspect more people are sticking around, but not necessarily in their field of education.” Talbott has sent questionnaires to recent graduates and alumni to find out where they are and what they are doing. Talbot, who graduated in 2010, wants to explore who stayed, who left and whether those who remained found work in their area of study, or took alternate employment to stay in the Okanagan. Talbott is working with Carlos Teixeira, an associate professor of human geography in the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences at UBC Okanagan. “We will know for the first time what their feelings are,” said Teixeira. “Why did they leave the valley, why did they stay? We have to do research in order to understand the challenges. We need to look forward. We need to start discussing (challenges) now,” said Teixeira.

.C.’s job market held steady in July, with unemployment at 7.3 per cent. The latest Statistics Canada job data were released as global financial markets teetered on the edge of another recession. B.C. was last reminded of its vulnerability to world events in late 2008 and early 2009, when financial markets froze up and governments around the world started frantically borrowing to bail out major industries. There are still idle construction cranes around B.C., although the vital commodity markets have recovered. It was the sickening skid in provincial revenues, which began to reveal itself during the 2009 election campaign, that triggered the B.C. government’s panicked grab for the harmonized sales tax and its transition fund. If blame is important to you, blame Stephen Harper for the HST, but please don’t believe Bill Vander Zalm and the NDP when they claim it was merely a political plot covered up with lies. Tom Fletcher The truth is much scarier than the scare tactics of these political opportunists. Globalization isn’t optional, and there are lots of countries out there ready to beat us up and take our lunch money if we give them half a chance. The Canadian and U.S. central banks have held interest rates near zero since the crisis. If something more goes wrong, they are “out of bullets,” as economists say. Here’s another economic fact about the year 2011. For the first time in Canadian history, the majority of people with employer-supported pensions now work for government or its agencies, rather than the private sector. There has been lots of bleating about HST on adult-sized clothing for children. Claiming your hubby’s clothes are actually for a bulky child may be the oldest scam in sales tax evasion. This is an example of what economists call the paradox of public finance. Economists like consumption taxes because they’re difficult to avoid. Many taxpayers dislike them for the same reason. This is the road that leads to Greece, where tax evasion is considered a civil right along with fat pay and pensions. The same population expects to go to university at little or no cost until they’re 30, and then retire at 55, with the whole apparatus somehow held up by the dwindling band of workers in between. The latest contract demands of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation give a sense of their Greece-like isolation from reality. Lengthy paid leaves, yet more paid professional development days, oh, and a double-digit wage increase after the rest of the public service has accepted zero. I attended the recent BCTF convention in Victoria, where this entitlement culture was on display. During a news conference about the BCTF’s many demands, someone stood behind Education Minister George Abbott and held up a sign for TV cameras that demanded “No Tankers.” This was no campus radical slipped in from the street. It was a middle-aged BCTF delegate, one of many decrying the industrial economy we need to pay for their pensions. B.C. aspires to be a ship-building economy but it can’t do shipping? According to our public sector union elites, we’re too precious to allow oil tankers in B.C.? Apparently some have still failed to notice that oil tankers have been going up and down the coast for decades, and back and forth under the Lion’s Gate Bridge for years.

federal funds for Kelowna’s 16-member anti-gang squad would continue beyond this fall. A similar unit was also set up in Prince George after a string of gang-related shootings in B.C., with a three-year commitment shared by the federal and provincial governments. “Over 200 organized crime

B.C.’s two-year-old “gangs and guns� strategy is working, and the province will continue to do its share to maintain it, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond says. Bond issued a statement Tuesday after community leaders questioned whether

4HEARTOFCUISINEFROMROOTTOPLATE Caetani Art Market offers up fare for those hungering for culinary culture KRISTIN FRONEMAN Morning Star Staff

Ah the lowly zucchini â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; so unloved in the garden, with its tendency to grow in leaps and bounds and in all sorts of weird shapes, but so beloved once itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s picked and sauteed in a little garlic and olive oil. The zucchini is just one of the edible delights that will be discussed, and enjoyed, at Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Caetani Art Market which is dedicated to the culinary arts. Those who love the abundance of fresh fruits and vegetable found in this neck of woods this time of year will want to head to the Caetani Cultural Centre, and bring your appetite for the flavours and colours of the season, says Judy Katalinic, Caetani centre executive director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The market will play host to a number of guests who will guide visitors through the art of growing your own food, eating for health, and transforming the bland to the delicious,â&#x20AC;? she said. Those who have ever wondered what to do with those surplus of

zucchini will want to take in a talk by local storyteller (Ghost Tours of Vernon) and social arts practitioner Gabriel Newman. A firm believer in the practice of combining food and story telling, as seen at his recent Social Potluck gatherings, Newman will exchange stories and recipes at an open forum heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s calling the Zucchini Support Group at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. in the Caetani centreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Courtyard CafĂŠ. People will be able to share their own experiences of growing and surviving the prolific results of harvesting zucchini, said Newman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Any surplus zucchini collected at the market will be donated to the local food bank.â&#x20AC;? The art of plating â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; using colourful foods with design for plate dressing â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; will also be discussed by Antje Schirwinsky in the Courtyard CafĂŠ at 11:30 a.m. The owner/chef of Vernonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crush Bistro, Schirwinsky will be giving talks at the market to demonstrate how a little bit of twist in preparation and presentation can make simple, everyday foods more

Newman hosts the Zucchini Support Group, where people can bring in unwanted zucchinis and share stories of growing the abundant vegetable. appetizing and fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colour can influence the appetite (and) meals from breakfast, through dinner and dessert can be an artful, pleasurable experience,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Taste buds play the most important part in helping to enjoy the many flavours of food, but much of it lies in the art of presenting a plate.â&#x20AC;? Schirwinsky will also talk about on the art of blending herbs and spices for maximum flavour and effect at 2 p.m., also in the Courtyard CafĂŠ. Organics versus non-organics, local versus non-local will also be discussed â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and tasted â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; when local cookbook author and local farmer Kathryn Hettler gives a presentation at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at the Trellis Patio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will challenge visitors to taste the difference between locally

grown, organic produce compared to the same shop-bought produce,â&#x20AC;? said Katalinic. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She will also be talking about her book with great tips on eating for good health.â&#x20AC;? Hettler runs Pilgrim Produce, an organic fruit and vegetable farm in Spallumcheen, with her husband, Robert, using sustainable methods to preserve the land. She co-wrote Real Food Real Health with Dr. Maureen Clement, a book with recipes and serving tips provided by many local growers, and a guide to the farms and farmers markets in the North Okanagan/Shuswap region. Those still hungry will want to head over to the Trellis Patio at 10 a.m. and at noon for tips and treats, with nourishing drinks and divine treasured eats, prepared by Mirranda Maxson, an artist/resident at the Caetani house.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Artistic expression manifests itself in anything you have a passion for,â&#x20AC;? said Maxson, who has cultivated a plot on the east side of the Caetani property, where she grows her own vegetables and herbs. Fellow green thumb resident Christine Pilgrim will welcome visitors to her front porch for bunches of the fresh, aromatic, and prolific mint she grows in her own garden at the house. An actress known for her enactments of historical figures, visitors just may find themselves served by Emily Carr, said Katalinic. For those who donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the space to grow in their own backyard, the Community Food Action Group will have a booth at the market to provide information on how and where to grow locally.

“There will, of course, be live music and kids crafts, not to mention more paintings, sculpture, jewelry, clothing and skin care products on sale than any other Caetani Art Market this year,” said Katalinic. “Artists will share how they create their work in their on-site studios, while Crush Bistro’s catering will add a little more flair to the Courtyard Café, with toonie tapas, soup and gourmet sandwiches.” In addition, visitors inspired by the guest speakers may find them-

selves tempted by unique drinking glasses hand crafted by Angela Broad in the Ninfa studio or Laurel Freden’s pottery range on the front deck. Kids will not be disappointed with junior apprentice wand makers Lucas and Ella Newman, who will have a small display of handcrafted wands for sale in the courtyard and will lead demonstrations on how to make your own wand, added Katalinic. The make-your-own-wand kits and demonstrations are by donation. For more information, visit www. caetaniculturalcentre.org.

id Jessie Eisenberg lose a bet? 30 Minutes or Less isn’t an awful film. An ‘80s-style caper comedy with a penchant for sailor talk, it’s passable if you’re in the mood for such an animal. But don’t forget, Eisenberg was up for an Oscar mere months ago. Love it or hate it, you’ve gotta admit that 30 Minutes or Less isn’t just a step down from where this guy’s been, it’s like he tumbled down a whole flight of stairs, landing on his head at the bottom. However, the dude’s presence is good news for the film, ‘cause he’s great in it –– miscast, maybe –– but great nonetheless.

The drive within and (most apparent the songs, coupled with here) releasing sponthe exuberant wailing of taneous feel-based Lukasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; axe, makes them recordings. appealing on a straight Lukas sets up ahead level.

Al Lukas brings his gritty, yet honed voice to new CD, In My Soul.

Life coach guides through divorce JESSICA SCHWITEK Morning Star Staff

From one of the most painful experiences of her life, she was able to grow into the person she wanted to be. “As difficult as it was, it was also a tremendous opportunity,” said Jodi Seery, life coach with Shift Life Design. “I myself had an intense divorce about five years ago. I had been going through a period of change. I lost a family member, moved, separated, lost another family member, then moved again. So, I needed help.” She decided to hire a life coach and it changed her life. Now Seery helps other women get through the same experience that she needed help with, half a decade ago. She coaches women and couples through difficult times in their relationship, as well as coaches women through divorce. She describes her work as “helping women who are experiencing divorce make peace with the change and rebuild their lives.” It is a philosophy and strategy that she picked up, in part, from a woman who is making quite a name for herself lately. If you have ever opened O The Oprah Magazine, you may have heard of her. Bestselling author Martha Beck, PhD, is a columnist for the magazine. “I wanted to train with the best, and I discovered Martha Beck,” said Seery. After making it through her divorce with the help of her life coach, Seery found that people would approach her, commend her on her growth, and ask for her advice. “I was doing it unofficially anyway, so I decided to get the training and do it for real,” she said. Through online courses and some time spent in Arizona, Seery soaked up all the knowledge she could from Beck, and started her own business, Shift Life Design. The training was very enlightening said Seery, but it is her personal experience that helps her connect with her clients who are going through divorces themselves. “The basic experience of divorce is the same even though the details are different,” she said. “We all go through the same life-changing cycle.” And despite the painful road it took to get there, Seery now finds herself in a very fulfilling place. “It’s so rewarding to see people who start out in tremendous pain, and come out of it transformed,” she said. “Divorce is a cycle of change,” said Seery. “And I try to help people move through that cycle.” Everyone heals at their own rate, but often a 12 week program is enough to get people through the cycle once, said Seery. “Sometimes people need to go back and repeat steps.” Life coaching is a fairly new profession, but it is gaining momentum, says Seery. Although it has the same ultimate goal as other forms of therapy, it differs in its approach. “Life coaching deals with the present, and moves forward from there,” said Seery. “It doesn’t involve the past.”

Life coach Jodi Seery holds up a copy of O The Oprah Magazine featuring a column from her former teacher, Martha Beck, PhD, called Let Your Intuition Be Your Guide. More traditional forms of therapy tend to focus a lot of time on analysing one’s childhood, which Seery says is not always necessary. “If we deal with how issues present themselves in the present, it tends to release the problem in the past,” she said.

As a primarily phone and internet based company, Seery has clients from all over the world. She offers oneon-one coaching, telecourses and workshops. For more information about Seery and her services go to www. shiftlifedesign.com.

Brothers raise funds for MS Morning Star Staff

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Ten-year-old Kody Kongsdorf, left, and his brother Joel, eight, are organizing a garage sale to raise funds for Rennie Sinopli to receive a "liberation" treatment to suppress his multiple sclerosis symptoms. They raised $2,700 last year for their mother to get the same treatment.

Two young brothers have decided to continue their tradition of helping others, even though their mother doesn’t need it anymore. Joel Kongsdorf, eight years old, and his brother Kody, age 10, decided last year to have a garage sale to raise money for their mom to send her for the chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI), commonly known as “liberation” treatment to relieve her progressing multiple sclerosis symptoms. The boys raised over $2,700, and their mom went to have treatment in Bulgaria in December, 2010. She is doing much better, and believes she would be in a wheelchair had

she not had the treatment. Now she plays soccer with her sons, and even put in a garden that all three of them enjoy together. This past spring, Kody asked if they could do the garage sale again, yet their mom, Lisa Kongsdorf, wasn’t sure who they should help. It was right after that she met Rennie Sinopli, a 36-yearold man who was just planning his wedding. Sinopli was diagnosed with relapsing and remitting MS after university at age 25, and has never been able to work. His wife has a job, but is still having difficulty supporting two people. Once married, Sinopli no longer qualifies for

Walmart helping out Red Cross Morning Star Staff

Everyone likes to think, "it won't happen to me," but thousands of Canadians needed disaster assistance from the Canadian Red Cross last year. From an extreme heat wave that impacts individuals to a flood that suddenly forces a community to evacuate with few possessions, the impact of a disaster can be devastating. The Red Cross is there to help but it can't do it alone. That's why fundraisers like the annual Walmart campaign are so important. The Walmart Canada coast-to-coast campaign raises much-needed funds for local Canadian Red Cross disaster response activities. The campaign runs in Walmart stores until Aug. 31 with

a national goal of $2.8 million and a combined goal of $308,200 for B.C. and Yukon. "Funds raised will help the Canadian Red Cross to be prepared to provide assistance within hours of a disaster," said David Magnuson-Ford, B.C. fund development manager of the Canadian Red Cross. "We're very excited to work with Walmart during this annual fundraising campaign, and know that Walmart shoppers will get behind the Canadian Red Cross." Walmart shoppers can make donations at the checkout to support the work of the Canadian Red Cross in their community. The Canadian Red Cross is a member

Lumby has a great history of memorable characters and when the local old timers get together, they often have a laugh about their exploits. Lumby writer Katharine Kroeker and Beryl Nerling of Vernon have decided to bring these stories together in a book and they are asking Lumby residents to help. They are inviting submissions of stories focusing on amusing and interesting tales. They can be any length, but they cannot repeat what has already been published in local histories. People of any age can submit local stories they know person-

ally or have heard from parents, grand-parents or other community members. Photographs (one per story) are welcome and will be returned if a self-addressed and

stamped envelope is included. Kroeker will help with editing the stories and she and Nerling will help people with recording the stories or taking them down

in writing. Stories and photos may also be emailed. For more information, contact Kroeker at 250-547-9434 or Nerling at 250-5491546.

Sinopli would like to be able to work, and start his marriage off where he feels he can contribute financially.

BIBLE BASICS

“Will a lion roar:” Amos 3:4: God’s judgement against Israel. The ominous roar of the lion means the lion has sprung upon his prey, for the hunting lion is silent till his quarry is in sight. Amos’ voice is a sign that Yahweh’s judgement has come upon Israel. Amos 3:8: “The lion hath roared:” A Àgure: hypocatastasis: an implied representation. Amos’ appearance as a prophet in Israel came because God had spoken.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Your judgment is pretty good currently, so now is the time to review past mistakes to discover what you did wrong. Doing so could serve as a preventive measure for you in the future. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Stop and take the time to figure out how to eliminate any continuing obligations you would like to get rid of. The means to do so can be found without causing any problems. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) Extra care needs to be given to a development that requires some skillful handling. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow yourself to be pressured into making a hasty judgment call, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll come out okay.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) Whether or not youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been pretty good lately at handling your funds, continue to be extra careful. You might not be as skillful at fiscal prudence as you think.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) You might have trouble finding ways to further another personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests, because you may not be able to figure out what she or he wants, but not so with your own endeavors. Get working on both. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) It is quite possible that your ideas are far superior to those of your peers, but convincing them of that is

250-542-6068

TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Although you prefer to work alone, a partnership arrangement might work out okay for you, provided that you, not your counterpart, is the one playing the leading role. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Do what you can to assist your co-workers without making a big deal over it. Your deeds will have greater impact if they are carried out unobtrusively, without any fanfare. CANCER (June 21-July 22) It is generally pretty easy to get your way with friends, but every once in a while some might protest. It could be one of those days, so tread softly, without being demanding.

   

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) Give priority to matters that could increase your earnings, because financial indicators are trending in your favor right now. There is one situation in particular that can be bountiful. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) Do what you can to reassure a friend that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re truly his or her true chum. It shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be difficult to find ways to express your loyalty, but making the time to do so might be.

overcall was awful ... but well-timed! If South had, say, A-J-10-x of diamonds, two diamonds doubled could easily have cost 1,100 or 1,400. After South made his automatic two-spade response, West did brilliantly, producing the aggressive pre-emptive jump to four diamonds. This painted his opponents into a corner. They would have done best to double. South would have led the spade ace and shifted to the heart five. East would have won with his ace and played a high diamond, but North would have taken the trick, cashed the heart king, and given South a heart ruff. Doubling four diamonds, though, was far from easy. North, knowing

If there’s not, then you need to live life more aggressively.” In today’s column, I am writing about an interesting auction. What do you think of the calls chosen?

Professor studies language from Avatar Black Press

Na’vi, the invented language spoken by alien characters in the top-grossing Hollywood blockbuster Avatar, is getting scholarly scrutiny by a University of B.C. anthropology professor. Christine Schreyer, an assistant professor of anthropology in community, culture and global Studies at UBC’s Okanagan campus, is surveying the popularity of the Na’vi language around the globe. The survey, which began June 14 and wrapped up at the end of July, is intended to discover the ages, genders and nationalities of the global community who uses the created language made popular by the 2009 movie. “Within the field of linguistic anthropology, few studies have focused on the speakers of created languages,” said Schreyer. “In particular, the identities of speakers of media-driven created languages such as Klingon, used in Star Trek, and Na’vi in the movie Avatar, have not been considered.” The response to date has been well beyond Schreyer’s expectations. “The support and enthusiasm from the Na’vi speaking community has been outstanding and overwhelming,” said Schreyer. She has received more than 120 responses in just over a month. Volunteers even offered to translate the survey into other languages such as Russian, Ukrainian, German, French, Hungarian, and Na-vi itself, since there are individuals learning Na’vi who do not speak

English. Among early discoveries, Schreyer has found there are those around the world who speak different root languages and converse in Na’vi to communicate with one other. Schreyer says the popularity of Na’vi is poised to surpass that of Klingon, the invent-

“Na’vi’s growth has been exponentially faster than Klingon.” — Christine Schreyer ed language used in the Star Trek movies and multiple TV series. Schreyer has also

examined the popularity of Klingon, created in 1984 by Mark Okrand for the Star Trek fran-

chise, via other scholarly works. “Due to the fact that Klingon has been

around for decades, more attention has been provided to this language and its speakers than the newly created language of Na’vi,” said Schreyer, “But Na’vi’s growth has been exponentially faster than Klingon. For instance, there are translations of the Na’vi/ English dictionary in

eight other languages.” Paul Frommer, the retired California linguist and creator of Na’vi, has e-mailed Schreyer with his support for the survey and a request to see the results of the research when it is done, as he too wonders just why this language has become so popular, so quickly.

Social service workers reach tentative deal Morning Star Staff

The Community Social Services Employers’ Association has reached a tentative agreement with the Community Social Services Bargaining Association. The tentative agreement covers approximately 14,000 employees, working for more than 200 contracted agencies. Bargaining association members are expected to vote on the agreement in the coming weeks. “Cong r atulations to the negotiators for reaching a tentative agreement within the province’s negotiating framework during these challenging financial times,” said Finance Minister Kevin Falcon. “Reaching this agreement will help the Province meet its budget commitments while we continue to deliver the care needed by some of British Columbia’s most vulnerable citizens.” Children and Family Development Minister Mary McNeil is also pleased that an agreement has been reached. “This tentative agreement demonstrates the desire of the women and men who provide essential services to our vulnerable citizens

to continue providing those services,” she said. “On behalf of British Columbians, I thank

the negotiators for their positive collaboration.” There are approximately 306,000 union-

ized workers in occupations throughout the province’s public sector, the great majority of

More than twothirds of those employees have now renegotiated agreements that were

set to expire in 2010, including agreements covering 99 per cent of health care workers.
