Thousands crowd TSN broadcast ROGER KNOX Morning Star Staff
Dale and Joanne Onrait always thought their son, Jay, had a bit of a goofy side. And, of course, now, thousands across Canada get to see the Onrait’s pride and joy showing off that goofiness as one of the hilarious anchors on TSN’s Sportscentre. On Friday, Dale and Joanne ventured from their home in Kelowna to see their son do his schtick – and do it well – with partner Dan O’Toole. A crowd estimated at close to 4,000 jammed Pleasant Valley Boulevard in downtown Armstrong to watch a live broadcast of Sportscentre under scorching North Okanagan skies. The event marked the beginning of the TSN Kraft Celebration Tour. Armstrong won the B.C. portion. “It’s great to see Jay on TV, he’s doing well, but, yes, he’s a little silly sometimes,” smiled Dale, who, along with Joanne, moved to the Okanagan from Athabasca, Alta. “But he’s always been like that.” This is the third year of the TSN Kraft Celebration tour but the first time the event has come to the North Okanagan. “It’s neat to see it here in Armstrong, and it’s our first time to one of these events. The crowd here is amazing,” said Dale, whose son, along with O’Toole, engaged the overflowing crowd a half-hour before, and during the live show, by singing and dancing along with three members of the B.C. Lions’ Felions dance squad. Jay Onrait acknowledged his parents during the show, as mom and dad were given a couple of seconds on camera in the crowd. “They came for the sunshine and stayed for the wine,” joked Onrait about the folks’ move to the Okanagan. Prior to the 3 p.m., broadcast, North Okanagan Kraft representative Kate Colbeck presented the Armstrong Kraft tour organizing committee with a cheque for $25,000, their reward for winning the B.C. portion of the tour. The money will be used to upgrade Hassen Arena. “You rock, Armstrong,” said Colbeck to the noisy, appreciative crowd. “Thanks to (Coun.) Ryan Nitchie’s compelling essay and
Armstrong’s incredible community spirit and hometown pride, you have won $25,000 to upgrade the Hassen Arena.” Nitchie, joined on the TSN stage by his two daughters and the organizing committee, was overwhelmed by the large turnout. “What a day,” he smiled. “Look at this crowd. This is why we entered the contest. To engage the community and because we knew we’d get their support.” A crew of more than 30 organized the entire broadcast, complete with set construction. Floor manager Ellen Pfeffer, a native of Kitimat, is on her second Kraft tour. “On show day, we get to the event about five hours before the live broadcast and check to make sure everything is working fine,” said Pfeffer, who helped keep the crowd cheering during the show and commercial breaks by encouraging them to shake free boxes of Kraft Dinner. During the broadcast, Onrait and O’Toole played clips of some of their antics in their 48 hours in the North Okanagan, including a stint on roller skates on the floor of the Hassen Arena with the Raggedy Rollers roller derby squad. A feature on the Rollers was played during the live broadcast, and inspired Sportscentre’s daily top-10 feature of top-10 spills. Onrait and O’Toole, however, stayed upright during their stint on skates. The thousands who took part in Friday’s activities enjoyed free barbecue burgers and hot dogs from Kraft, Cheez Whiz samples, a Jello bouncy castle for the kids, and plenty more. O’Toole and Onrait threw hats and t-shirts into the large crowd during commercial breaks. “When we say we enjoy being in your town, we mean it and not because we want to get pelted with Kraft Dinner,” added O’Toole. “We say it from our heart. We love your town.” O’Toole made an impression on Deep Creek General Store employee Marissa Bruneau. She chased after O’Toole for an autograph after he left the store. “He bought some cough drops and I had him sign the receipt,” smiled Bruneau, 15. Her friend Julia Bargery met

An estimated crowd of 4,000 (below) enjoyed the pairs’ antics and broadcast. the pair at an autograph session Thursday at Askew’s Foods and was given a nickname by Onrait. “He called me ‘Zombie girl’ because my t-shirt said ‘Have you seen my pet zombie?’” laughed Bargery, 14. Both teens thought it was cool that TSN was in Armstrong, as did longtime resident Pat McGregor, 49, who had his son, Ryan, with him. “I think it’s absolutely great for the community and the attention it brings to our little corner of the world,” said McGregor, vice-president of a steelworkers union. “The arena can really use the money.” At the end of the show, Onrait and O’Toole donned Armstrong Shamrocks lacrosse jerseys and fell back off the stage and did some crowd surfing.

stewardship and agricultural committee has come up with a water supply strategy for council to peruse with the primary goal for the township to provide water to existing residents by creating cluster systems within the current water districts. The districts’ water pipes run very close to each other, according to the committee, and could be connected with little additional pipes to create such a cluster. Brew said there is no

Vernon-Monashee MLA Eric Foster isn’t concerned the departure of a high-profile politician will negatively impact a possible election call. Barry Penner has resigned as B.C.’s attorney general and he will not run as Chilliwack-Hope MLA in the next election. An election could possibly come as early as this fall according to media speculation and even comments from Premier Christy Clark. “I don’t know if it means a whole lot,” said Foster of Penner’s decision. “Nobody should read anything into this. People make these decisions all of the time.” Penner says he wants to spend more time with his wife and young daughter, and the decision to step down was partly triggered by Liberal Party documents asking him to identify his election campaign team. “I believe the premier and government would be better served having someone in cabinet who will be working with them, shoulder-to-shoulder, through to and after the next election,” Penner said. Under provincial legislation, there doesn’t have to be an election until 2013. Foster says he has not received any electionrelated documents and says the only ones really focused on a possible election is the media. “There’s talk about it everywhere but there’s more discussion about the fall agenda at the Legislature than anything else,” he said. The government is also awaiting the outcome of the referendum of the harmonized sales tax.

Empties bolster programs RICHARD ROLKE Morning Star Staff
Empty pop and beer cans may only be worth a few cents each, but when added up, they can make a difference for people opening a new chapter in their life. The Upper Room Mission is urging residents to drop off unwanted beverage containers so money can be raised for programs that provide residents with life skills and assistance with food and housing. “It gives money to the people who do the work sorting and it pays for cleaning supplies here and it helps with the outreach workers,” said Bobbe MacKenzie, a volunteer and mission board member. Bottles and cans will be collected year round at the mission at 3403 27th Ave. The hours for dropoff are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday, Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 9 a.m. to noon (ring main door on weekends). MacKenzie hopes the community will get behind the new fundraiser. “Please help us help others,” she said. Police cars are a common sight at the mission but MacKenzie says they are there as
part of improved relations with clients and their presence should not prevent residents from dropping bottles and cans off.
“The police cars are not because of trouble but because of the great co-operation we now have with the RCMP and the auxiliary
police,” she said. For more information about donating to the Upper Room Mission, call 250-5491231.

Sick and tired of being...
here’s nothing like being sick in the summer that makes you feel, well, like the biggest loser this side of Loserville. And, don’t get me wrong I’m not looking for sympathy or anything, well maybe a little, a big part of the sick, loser thing is feeling sorry for yourself and us guys are pretty good at that, but I thought maybe I’d share my story in case anybody could relate (plus I’m still not 100 per cent and it’s virtually the only thing I did last week so it’s what you get this week). I think it started a week ago Thursday night when, not to get into too many details over your breakfast, but I spent as much time in the bathroom as the bedroom so by the morning I Glenn Mitchell was totally wasted and figured I wasn’t going to work so made the call with the pathetic voice to inform the office that I was going to be AWOL. I got over the guilt after awhile and attempted to get some shut-eye as the birds chirped outside and the sun shone down on the Okanagan to reveal all the abundance and spoils that the valley has to offer outside your window – spectacular scenery, refreshing lakes, bountiful fruit, recreational activities too numerous to count – unless you happen to be overwhelmingly consumed with your own well-being and whether you can risk another sip of apple juice in an attempt to stave off death, or, just give in to the inevitable and finally end the suffering. OK, maybe a little melodramatic but it’s the kind of stuff that goes through your head as you toss and turn and sweat and totally absorb yourself in the moment, which doesn’t feel so good. And it’s like time stands still when you’re sick and your mind has way too much time to think about, well, how sick you are. And every other stupid little, trivial thing that enters your mind and causes concern and the fact that you’re unable to do anything about it due to your present state of affairs keeps your mind racing like an Indy car that happens to have no wheels so it can’t get out of the pit. Arrgggghhhhhh. And how alone you are. Although when you’re
sick you can be in a house of 30 people and feel as if you are on a deserted island. One of my kids was at home so occasionally there was the offer of water and a check on my condition (even genuinely, instead of the usual monotone “how was your day, dad?” greeting I get from them and that’s only cause they know I give them heck if they don’t before they ask for something as soon as I get home from work) that I did appreciate, plus at least there was someone to dial 911 if things got even worse.... Plus my dear, sweet mother did call me later in the afternoon after she heard I’d taken a turn for the worse. Maybe I wasn’t alone. And maybe I would live after all as the illness subsided just enough to give some room for optimism. As in, death was no longer a viable option. After all, thanks to the PGA championship, yes it’s on for eight hours on Friday afternoon so it came in handy, between bouts of trying to sleep, and AMC (which has good movies on during the day, although the commercials, mostly for ambulance-chasing lawyers and so-called universities that will transform your so-called life, assuming of course you need a transformation from such a prestigious learning centre because, well, what are you doing home watching TV on a Friday afternoon anyway?), and I got through Day 1 OK. Of course my bounce back was slow and painful and Day 2 and Day 3 weren’t that much different from Friday, except it was the weekend on two fabulous, sunny days off in the Okanagan, and I was now officially a bigger loser than yesterday. Not to mention I was still watching AMC and golf, although mostly sitting up now, and seriously considering calling up a 1-800 lawyer on TV to see what I could get from the person who gave this damn thing to me. And then there was my family, who was starting to lose patience with my malady and I was now officially to blame for ruining a planned boating trip for Sunday....... Anyway, you’ll be relieved to know I’m feeling better, and I’m sure also happy that this column is finally coming to a close, and I no longer hate birds, the sun or anything else that happens to occur outside my bedroom window. I’m back. Or at least 80 per cent back. And we’re even going boating this afternoon. Isn’t life wonderful?
How to provide clean, affordable drinking water is increasingly an issue for all communities, so it’s no surprise that Spallumcheen officials are contemplating their next steps. Staff will investigate whether a well can be developed to meet the needs of all residents, replacing the current system of 14 independent water districts. The challenge is most of the utilities are small and may only serve a handful of properties. That means the customer base to proceed with any upgrades to the system, even replacing underground pipes, is extremely onerous. And the situation could only get worse. The Interior Health Authority is eventually looking to have all utilities meet certain standards when it comes to water quality. In Greater Vernon, the process has come with a significant price — $29 million for the Duteau Creek treatment plant and an anticipated $20 million for filtration. If the much larger population base of Greater Vernon has struggled with these expenses, small utilities in Spallumcheen are facing an uphill battle. Township council and staff deserve credit for investigating options because without a stable and cost-effective source of water, future development will be limited and that will have a negative impact on the economy and the tax base. However, there are implications if the proposal proceeds. Instead of the individual utilities being responsible for themselves, the township and all taxpayers will be on the hook for upgrades and addressing IHA’s demands. That may also require additional staff to be hired. There is no timeline for a new well, but there’s no question council will tap into major discussions among its residents.

Political decisions questioned
o you ever think, as you read, hear or watch various media reports, that politicians are increasingly making short-sighted decisions that carry with them an unintended (at least I hope it is unintended) consequence of undermining the basic fabric of our society? Thoughts like that occurred to me when I became aware of provincial decisions to cut back on the employment of judges, Crown prosecutors and sheriffs to the extent that criminal cases are so delayed that persons charged are getting off scotfree simply because too much time has elapsed between a charge and a trial. Similarly, I wonder about political decisions to defer adding hospital beds to a region such as the North Okanagan that is both growing and graying and expected to keep on doing so for the foreseeable future. It boggled my mind to learn that we now have, on a per capita basis, fewer hospital beds than we had several decades ago. I’m sure you can come up with other examples where financial cutbacks have led to an erosion of the common good. My worry is that too many politicians are too focused on dollars and their venality
ONE POCKET Taxes on all levels are complicated. Formulas for calculation are extensive and so they should be to prove need. By contrast, provision of the funds is simple. There is only one pocket that pays: each one of ours as taxpayers. Recent economic times have forced companies and businesses alike to streamline to save money and keep afloat. I suggest that it is now time for governments, particularly provincial and federal, to bear out the same prudence and reevaluate expenses. Millions of dollars every year are given over to retired individuals who who have served as MLAs, MPs and senators. Because this is a practice which has been in place for many years, does that mean it should continue? This pensioning is out of touch with the country's present economic structure, reality and difficulties. There are far too many critical issues needing serious attention across the country: medical care, child poverty, affordable education, native issues, unemployment, and the environment, to name but a few.
is a whip that keeps them slaves to the party line. They have lost sight of non-monetary values that are so essential to feed our souls and to maintain our quality of life; in fact, I worry that we have elected too many venal party hacks attracted by six figure salaries and much envied pension entitlements at the MP and MLA political levels. Even at the municipal level, remuneration is considerably more than we are led to believe. Take the case of Vernon. A councillor is paid about $20,000 but one-third of that is tax free so that equates to about $25,000 for what is essentially a part-time job. On
It seems to be that the time to show respect for the sacrifices made in running for public office is at the time the role is undertaken. The extent of the commitment required is considerable: time away from family and home, unending and challenging service to all constituents, long hours and health consequences caused by stress not only for the members but also for their families, as well as a lapse in their chosen career prior to running. That legislature member should receive commensurate salary and be compensated for expenses incurred in carrying out legitimate official duties goes without saying. However, once the term of service is complete, and the return to private life and careers is effected, that's when the responsibility needs to return to those individuals to be their own entity and self-supporting. I encourage everyone at election time to apprise yourselves of the issues and then wear with pride the democracy we are fortunate enough to have by exercising your right to vote. If a party or person other than the one you voted for wins, then

top of that, a Vernon councillor appointed to a Greater Vernon committee is entitled to between $10,000 and $15,000 more. That was news to me; I thought serving on regional district boards was an intrinsic part of a Vernon councillor’s job but, nope, they get to double dip. I mention these numbers so public spirited individuals who thought they couldn’t afford to run for council maybe have some second thoughts. Given all the bickering amongst our local politicians it seems obvious our North Okanagan political gene pool needs revitalizing so I hope to see significant changes after the November elections.
so be it. Have respect for that person, the extent of their sacrifice, and know that they are there to serve you too, and even though they may not be aligned with your ideology, they are duty bound to assist you with whatever issues you may have regardless of you political stripes and will either do their best with your problem or see the door come the next election. Finally, provincial and national politicians: when your term of office is over, let's get back to business as usual. As taxpayers, we are still trying to deal with all those causes and issues your ran for and worked on. Your term of office may now be over but the problems have not gone away. Audrey D. Maynard TRANSIT BLUES I have no clue on the complexity of the operations of, nor the costs of running, a bus on the Vernon bus system, but it is really difficult to climb up and down the buses' four steps, with a four-wheel walker, of this old bus I was introduced to on July 22.
A particular area of local concern is our ongoing water woes. We taxpayers are on the hook for $29 million for a water works that continues to issue boil water advisories because it cannot get the water sufficiently clean to meet mandated drinking water standards. So Interior Health is demanding that taxpayers cough up another $20 million to filter the water to enhance its clarity. Surprised? You shouldn’t be. That is inevitable when your water gurus decide to turn the former Grey Canal water source built for agricultural irrigation into a drinking water source. We need people to run for local office who use what’s between their ears for something other than rubber stamping staff demands for ill conceived pet projects that soak up mega tax dollars without actually doing what needs doing. Ideally, we will elect people who demand results and are not afraid to use a few F words such as, "Act frugally," "Don’t fiddle the facts," "Find a better way" and "You’re fired." Jim Bodkin
I started taking the bus into Vernon from Armstrong the first week of July, and was happy to roll my walker onto the low-rise bus. Wanting to be environmentally friendly, I took my truck off the road and bought a couple of months of multi-zone bus passes. I was liking the convenience of taking transit and the stressless driving. I have a permanent, mobile disability, and utilize my four-wheel walker constantly. If those big, long buses cost too much to do a run up to Enderby and back, how about then, using those smaller, ugly, lowrise buses that have no windows that open to let in air? If not, then I will re-insure my truck again and drive to Vernon for my daily appointments, and stop taking the bus completely. Can I get my money back on the August 2011 multi-zone bus pass that I bought, as well as the handyDart tickets I bought? I know I am only one small voice. There are mothers with small children and buggies and other seniors on this route. Jeannette Hee

A Vernon teen facing medical challenges has captured the support of the community. An auction raised $11,700 Thursday for the family of Ryan Wiebe, 14, who has been at B.C. Children’s Hospital for three months. He is suffering from seizures and can’t keep anything in his stomach. “I was shooting for $3,500,” said friend Myrika Schipfel, who organized the event at the Vernon Yacht Club. “I’ve done charity events before and this was the best. People were just dropping off money because they couldn’t be there and I was getting calls from Kelowna.” Dad Darryl, a teacher, has been in Vancouver the whole time with Ryan, while mom Kim, a hairstylist, is at home with Ryan’s twin brother Tyler. Kim makes the trip to Vancouver every weekend. The goal of the fundraiser was to provide assistance for travelling and food while at the coast. “It will help with anything that makes their life a little easier and less stressful,” said Schipfel. The auction included hockey gear and photographs signed by professional hockey players, as
“It will help with anything that makes their life a little easier.” — Myrika Schipfel well as jewelry and gift certificates. The highest bid was $1,100 for a jersey signed by Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby. There was also a chance to check out the 2008/09 Stanley Cup ring belonging to Vernonite Eric Godard, who was part of the the National Hockey League champion Pittsburgh Penguins. Also on hand was Sonja Gaudet and her gold medals in Paralympic curling. Kim Wiebe made a brief appearance at the auction. “It was so overwhelming for her. She was so appreciative of the support,” said Schipfel. Support for the family continues with a donation tin being set up at The Morning Star office, 4407 25th Ave. For information about donating, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org

Intersection safety has been deemed the top priority of an Okanagan-wide symposium on traffic. And that has Spallumcheen’s public works manager smiling. Ed Forslund represented the township at the symposium, held earlier this summer in Vernon, which was attended by stakeholders to discuss the highway corridor running from the border near Osoyoos through to Revelstoke. Communities had submitEd Forslund ted problem areas to symposium organizers and were made part of the agenda. Spallumcheen has expressed concerns about the intersections of Highway 97A and McLeod Road, and the highway and entrance to the Log Barn. “Intersection safety was made the top priority which addresses our concerns with McLeod Road and the Log Barn,” said Forslund. “The symposium couldn’t target individual preferences. The idea was to take an overall view of concerns that cover the whole valley. I’m pretty happy that our intersection concerns came to the top.” Another meeting on valley transportation will be held in Penticton Sept. 16 that will include politicians and workshop staff. Politicians will have their input on traffic concerns. After that, all input recorded by consultants will be brought back to the provincial government to see if there are ways to fund some of the ideas resulting from the traffic symposiums.

A Vernon family is in need of assistance after an ATV accident left their nine-year-old daughter requiring multiple visits down to B.C. Children’s Hospital, and some expensive orthodontic work. “She was out ATVing — she was a passenger — and they lost control and she was thrown on her face,” said Lynn Therrien about her daughter Emma’s accident. “She has a broken and dislocated jaw, and it took all the skin off her chin.” Emma was visiting relatives near Prince George when the incident occurred, and was flown to Vancouver right away for surgery at Children’s. Improper safety measures played a part in the severity of Emma’s injuries. She was not wearing a full-face helmet. “Obviously accidents do happen, but you can
better protect yourself,” said Therrien, who would like to spread awareness as much as possible about ATV safety. The surgeons are still unsure about how much work still needs to be done, so for the time being Emma has her jaw wired shut. “She’s been totally traumatized,” said Therrien, adding that she is nervous about going back to school in September given her appearance. “It’s going to be a very long process for her,” said Therrien. “We don’t have orthodontic coverage, and we don’t qualify for assistance.” A donation account at TD Canada Trust has been set up for anyone who wishes to help out. People can just go into the local branch and mention Emma’s name. “People have been really supportive so far, we really want to thank everyone,” said Therrien.

Dave Merklinger demonstrates the proper way to scrape the ice during an ice making course Wednesday at the Priest Valley Arena.
Merk puts chill on workshop His resumé includes the Vancouver Olympics, a handful of Tim Hortons Briers and Scotties Tournament of Hearts, along with world and international championships. So it is fair to say that Vernon Curling Club ice maker Dave Merklinger is among the best at making curling ice in the world. Or, as far as Norm Scott from the Royal City Curling Club in
Learn to Skate Vernon Skating Club is now registering for
Merklinger got the idea for the ice-making workshop when a friend talked about hosting a junior curling camp in the Okanagan over the summer, but couldn’t find any ice. Merklinger talked to the City of Vernon about using the Priest Valley Arena which, as of last weekend, was turned into a five-sheet curling club for the Curl BC Rockslide Summer camp, which began Thursday. “With the ice already
in, I could show the ice makers scraping and pebbling techniques which are all important to having good ice,” said Merklinger Wednesday on the ice at Priest Valley. “The purpose of the clinic was to talk about championship ice and how to get the best ice possible. With the junior camp coming here, I thought it was a good time to have an ice tech course. There hasn’t been one around here in a long time.”

New Westminster is concerned, the man they call Merk is alone at the top. “Dave’s the best in the world,” said Scott, one of 32 attendees at an ice-making session hosted this week by Merklinger at the Vernon Curling Club and Priest Valley Arena. “There are lots of guys at Dave’s level but as far as personality, he’s got the best. He’s the most down to earth and incredibly knowledgable.”

Experts highlight course Continued from A14 Dave Loverock discussed water quality and the benefits of having good water to help in ice making. Fred Veale, one the world’s foremost authorities on curling rocks, talked about how to maintain the stones. “It was definitely worth it,” said Josh Firman, ice maker at the Creston Curling Club and originally from London, Ont., of the three-day session. “It’s probably more advantageous than the day-to-day work at the club. Dave’s a fountain of knowledge. Any information I can get out of him is beneficial.” Firman will have a chance to put what he learned in Vernon to good use later this year, as the Creston club will host the women’s zone playdowns.

EDITOR: KEVIN MITCHELL
Godard getting ready for Big D KEVIN MITCHELL Sports Editor
As an elite enforcer in the NHL, Eric Godard wins most of his fights. Loses the odd one like last year when Matt Carkner of the Ottawa Senators broke his orbital bone. “He hit me in the right spot,” smiled Godard, after a sweat-till-ya-drop spin class at Excel Fitness Thursday morning. He’s healthy, newly engaged to former Morning Star sales rep Myrika Schipfel and ready to begin a new NHL gig with the Dallas Stars. Godard, who agreed to a two-year contract with the Stars in early July, had seven scraps last year with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He figures to be challenged even more in the Western Conference. “It seems pretty active. There’s (George) Parros, (Kevin) Westgarth, (Paul) Bissonette so I should be busy. I haven’t been too busy the past couple of years. Not too many games, so I’m excited to have a chance to get some more games.” The 31-year-old racked up 550 penalty minutes with the WHL Lethbridge Hurricanes and earned a free-agent deal with the Florida Panthers. He has the toughest job in hockey and defends his craft. “I don’t really ever see it going anywhere. I think it belongs in the game. There’s a lot of people who don’t and that’s their opinion, I guess. It (debate on fighting) kind of goes away and it’ll come back. It fluctuates like everything else.” The 6-foot-4, 214-pound heavyweight, who was a provincial team rugby player in his teens, got in just 19 games last year with the Pens. He pocketed three goals and 352 penalty minutes in three years in Pittsburgh, earning a Stanley Cup ring in 2009. “It was awesome,” said Godard. “We had a place there and good neighbours and we made a few real good friends so it sucks because it was starting to actually feel like home. “Playing with that team and meeting those guys, I kind of learned the roles teammates play and how a team comes together.” — Eric Getting up close and personal with superstar Sidney Crosby was of course a treat. Godard says No. 87 will be back soon from concussion issues. “He’s not too bad. It’s not like a deathwatch. He’s gonna be OK. It’s just what’s the point of pushing it in the summer?” On Crosby as a captain, Godard said: “He’s a quiet guy. He’ll say something when he feels the need for something to be said but he’s going to be out there showing more by example. In practice too. Sometimes, we’ve gotta wait to start practice because he’s down at the other end shooting pucks.” Godard and his fiancé organized a fundraiser Thursday at the Vernon Yacht
Club for a friend’s son who is ill at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Schipfel also made a difference in Pittsburgh. “They always had stuff with the girls, but she’s pretty active and went out on her own with Christopher’s Guests,” said Godard. “They help the families who come in for their kids with transplants if they’ve been waiting too long, just kind of get them everyday things. They have an apartment where families can stay. I think they raised $40,000 last year. She really took off with that. It was fun to watch her.” In Dallas, Godard is going to a team with a new coach – Saskatchewan product Glen Gulutzan – and a few players from his past. “I don’t know too much about Dallas. I know Alex Goligoski, who got traded there last year (from Pittsburgh), and I played with Adam Hardy in Calgary and Omaha.” He likes today’s NHL, where just making the playoffs turns a team into a Stanley Cup contender. “I watched Vancouver and Boston play, who are both good teams, but I feel we could have beat them. Anybody can do it. It’s exciting. I think what you’re starting to see is how the team dynamics work in these games. Teams are bringing in guys, more role players, to kind of complement, basically their core guys. You’re starting to see more good organizations, who build teams rather than buy teams, flourish.” To stay one right hook ahead of the younger tough guys in the league, Godard works like his dog, Tonka, with personal trainer Rhonda Catt. Catt says Godard and others, like Aaron Volpatti (Vancouver Canucks), Stefan Schneider (Canucks system) and Brady Brassart (Spokane Chiefs) take their training seriously. “They’ve got to train hard to keep their jobs,” said Catt, who used to train Red Wings’ retired goalie Chris Osgood. “Nowadays, if you’re not training, it’s going to be pretty hard pressed to keep that position in the league. Everybody trains now. You have to. He’s (Godard) frigging fast. He’s fast as hell and he’s Godard strong. “The shape these guys are already in when they come in just blows me away so it’s great because I’m able to push them at such an incredible hard level and they’re able to do it. I love the training because there’s so much that you can do with these guys. It’s so much fun.” The NHLers and prospects regularly do the hellish Stairway to Heaven on Okanagan Avenue. “I hold the overall record on the stairs,” beamed the likeable Godard. “Although (retired NHLer) Steve Kelly might have something to say about that.” In his spare time this summer, Godard has spent time visiting family, boating, hiking and camping.
“You’re starting to see more good organizations, who build teams rather than buy teams, flourish.”

Zone 5 (Okanagan) shut down defending champion Vancouver Island North 3-0 Friday in the gold-medal final of men’s soccer at the B.C. Senior (55+) Games in Castlegar. After a scoreless half, Wolfgang Bopp of Salmon Arm unleashed a quick shot to put the Okanagan entry ahead. Bopp then fed Joe Jamison of Kelowna, who found the short side for a 2-0 lead. Jenne Huberts of Vernon headed in the third goal. Allen Bensmiller of Vernon earned the shutout. Also representing the North Okanagan with the gold medalists were Mahmoud Abdel-Kader, Tim Penaluna, Denis Chabot, Harry Adam, Rich Zecchel, Erv Schuur and Mike Siemens. In 60+ action in Castlegar, the Zone 5 crew needed a shootout to clinch gold over Vancouver Island North. The Islanders went up 1-0 early in the game, but the Okanagan boys, featuring locals Boris Pasieka and Felix Heinrich, responded with two quick strikes on goal-mouth scrambles. The 60s held the lead until close to the end when North Island equalized to force a shootout, which Okanagan won 4-2.

Furious George grabs gold Morning Star Staff
Vancouver’s Furious George had never lost a game at the Canadian Ultimate Frisbee Championships. The three-time defending champions kept that record intact at the 25th annual tournament last weekend at Ultimate Park (UPI) and Carleton University in Ottawa. Vernon’s Andy Collins, a member of Furious George, knew Sunday’s goldmedal game would be a big challenge, and they needed a late comeback to upend GOAT, a combo team from TorontoOttawa, 14-13. “This year we would be in tough playing against GOAT, who had beaten us just two weeks early at the Colorado Cup,” said Collins. “After both teams rolled through pool play and the quarters and semis, the stage was set for a rematch of 2007 nationals finals.” The game was tight right from the start, with GOAT taking an 8-6 lead at halftime, “which set up the most exciting finish I have ever been a part of,” said Collins. Furious was able to bring it back to 11-11, but after two drops in the endzone, GOAT went ahead 12-11, and followed that with another break to make it 13-11. In order to win, Furious needed three straight scores, which they delivered, getting a pair of points from their defence. Collins was able to throw for each of the three scores. Playing in a 16-team, four-pool tourney, Furious George went undefeated in pool play, icing Team Q of Quebec 15-3, NADS of North Bay, Ont. 15-6 and Maverick of Kitchener-Waterloo 15-7. With the bottom four teams relegated, the Vancouver crew kept rolling in the first playoff round, stuffing Blackfish of Vancouver 15-2, Grand Trunk of Toronto 15-7 and Phoenix of Ottawa 15-4 to top their group. In the championship bracket, Furious brushed back Montreal’s Mephisto 15-9 in

MacDonald backstops win Morning Star Staff
Langley Thunder head coach Rod Jensen knew netminder Brodie MacDonald’s character would be tested against the high-powered New Westminster Salmonbellies. After getting pulled in the second period of Game 1 of the best-of-seven Western Lacrosse Association playoff finals (an 8-3 loss), MacDonald, a Vernon Re/ Max Tiger grad, showed his mental toughness with a 45-save showing in Game 2, lifting his team to a 12-6 win Friday night at the Langley Events Centre. Tied 2-2 after the first period, Langley pushed ahead to take a 6-5 lead after 40 minutes before blowing the game wide open with six more strikes in a penalty-filled third frame.
A mini line brawl broke out with 56 seconds to play, with MacDonald and teammates Jamie Lincoln and Steve Hay earning fighting majors. Kyle Ross, Matt Roik and Matt Laustrup were New Westminster’s combatants. Roik earned an additional gross misconduct for physical abuse of an official, while Laustrup earned an extra penalty for leaving the bench. MacDonald collected second star, while the Thunder’s Athan Iannucci took first star for firing four goals and adding one assist. Third star Kevin Crowley had a hat trick for New Westminster. Game 3 goes tonight at Queen’s Park Arena in New Westminster, with Game 4 slated for Tuesday in Langley.

Study considers valley turtles
Whether itâ€™s soaking up the last days of summer on a road trip, or a quick jaunt across the border for groceries or gas, make sure your car insurance is ready for the trip too. Here are a couple of things you can do to be sure: Understand your coverage limits and deductibles. Know what coverages and deductibles you carry for your vehicle. Refer to your insurance documents and ensure you have the following coverages:
Proof of Insurance - Keeping your documents with you. Having adequate car insurance canâ€™t help unless you keep your documents with you. When crossing the border, you may be asked to produce your car registration to show proof of ownership. Itâ€™s also helpful to have on hand, your documents and a 24-hour e m e r g e n c y claim telephone number from your insurance company should you be involved in an accident.

If you see little turtles trapped on local ponds, donâ€™t be alarmed. The western painted turtle is the subject of a new UBCO research project headed by assistant professor Michael Russello and masters student Evelyn Jensen. The pair are looking at the threatened species DNA makeup to see how the local intermountain painted turtle differs from the Rocky Mountain painted turtle, found just east of here, and the one situated in the Lower Mainland. At the moment, only the western painted turtle on the coast is on the provincial blue list, considered vulnerable to habitat loss and human and natural disturbances. The local ones are considered a species of concern, but Russello says this research could determine whether there should be such a distinction between the two and whether the turtles are all in danger or only a portion are under threat. Eventually, this all helps determine the best conservation methods for the turtles. Central Okanagan Regional District parks planner Wayne Darlington says the study will amount to noticing some unusual nets and red buoys in the waterways of parks. The nets are open at the top and flow under water with plenty of room for the turtles to breath at the surface. Each turtle will be measured and have a DNA sample taken before being returned to its natural habitat.

Armstrong fair tickets still available Morning Star Staff
Heaton Place and the Interior Provincial Exhibition are releasing a further 100 discounted passes to the public. That became necessary after the original offering of $5 tickets was snapped up. “We’ve been totally overwhelmed by the demand for these passes,” said Kelly Brown with Heaton Place in Armstrong. “They have been selling even faster than last year. It’s terrific that we can release more tickets because the demand is there and the seniors in our community are certainly deserving.” Passes are good for any single day of the IPE, but may only be used by those 65 years old and better. They can be purchased at the Heaton Place show suite at 3093 Wright St. Monday, Wednesday or Saturday between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. “Due to the demand, passes are limited to

The Interior Provincial Exhibition, which draws large crowds, runs in Armstrong from Aug. 31 to Sept. 4. one per person,” said Brown. Three weeks ago, the IPE and Heaton Place announced the availability of a limited
number of discounted IPE passes for seniors. “While demand for the $5 passes was expected to be high, nobody expected the passes to
sell as quickly as they have,” said Brown. “As of the end of the day Aug. 17, there were only a handful of passes remaining. With
the grand opening of the show suite Aug. 20, Heaton staff members expected all remaining passes would sell out that day.”

The bells rang with joy, welcoming its members to St. Johnâ€™s Lutheran Church July 24. One would think they had stepped back in time as they watched the people dressed in 1911 attire hurrying across the parking lot. The ladies of all ages were decked out in hats, long sleeves, long skirts and shawls. The gentleman, men and boys wore hats, bow ties, suspenders, shirt sleeve bands and suites. Pastor Roy White and Vicar Greg Palmer were garbed in sombre black as they delivered the Sunday message. It

was a special service dedicated to Palmer his wife Marla and his children, Lushia, Seth, Manni, Ethan and Emi. Palmer has spent the past year in Vernon and returns to the seminary in Ontario to complete his training as a pastor. After the service, a matched pair of horses and a buggy driven by Joe Delisimunovic was waiting at the front of the church. Folks lined up to have a ride and to remember when â€œthoseâ€? were the days. For those younger people, the ride was just a fun thing to do. An old-fashioned church picnic took place, with kids of all ages playing games, the three legged race, the shoe
toss, the potato sack race and the wheel barrow race to name a few. A picnic would not be a picnic without food consisting of salads, hotdogs and deserts. Prizes for the best costumes were awarded to: Randy, Diane, Kristen and Mathew Forsyth as well as Jon and Katie Biel. Each was given a day pass to the Interior Provincial Exhibition which is held Aug. 31 to Sept. 4, in Armstrong. This jog in time is related to St. Johnâ€™s Lutheran Church being 100 years old. The celebratory weekend is Nov. 11, 12, and 13.

Freedom. It means something different to everyone and in the minds of those with special needs, it means everything. On Saturday, the Vernon Elks Lodge is hosting the Freedom to Enjoy Life’s Little Things fundraiser for the resource room at Clarence Fulton Secondary School, with a goal of generating enough funds to purchase a tandem excursion bike. “There are a dozen students with special needs at Fulton,” said event organizer Nina Kaufman. “This would give them an opportunity to explore the community and/or get from class to class with the sense of being inde-
pendent.” The modified bike has a high back with chest straps and a seatbelt for safety. An adult rides behind the student and is in control of steering. Saturday’s fundraiser will feature a performance by local band No Bad Days, with door prizes for every ticket purchased, said Kaufman, adding numerous sponsors have come on board with contributions. “The Elks is yet another community minded non-profit association, volunteering endless hours in support of community organizations needing assistance,” she said. Those who are unable to attend can drop off a donation at the Elks lounge

New school year is almost here
y mom was a pioneer because she went to a one room school house. Those were the words my youngest shared with delight with his Grade 3 class during Pioneer Week. It certainly brought me some interesting looks from his classmates. Hmmm, she must be really really old, they thought. As a farmer, I started school in a one room school house in Metcalf Township in southern Ontario. The boys went in one side, the girls the other. We had desks that joined, and one big open room, with high windows, tall ceilings, and a huge yard to play in. We often had our classes outdoors under a large maple tree, and we visited the farm next door on a regular basis. At the end of the school year we moved to the "big school," five classrooms, a gym, a library and an even bigger playground, as well as a pond, and a field bordering a forest. We studied frogs and plants at the pond, and skated on it in the winter. We made the forest our classroom, especially in the fall when we studied the changing seasons and the impact on the trees. It could never happen now.

you to be an advocate, and there are times I wish I could re-do that one. I wish I had been able to make a difference that would have benefited my children more effectively. I had some great meetings with teachers and some horrible ones. Find someone who sees the strengths with your child and work with them so you can make effective plans together. There were a couple of years in elementary where I was depressed, and I feel like I missed some opportunities during this time. I was still trying to be “super mom” on the outside, while in such pain on the inside. Eventually this spills over into your home life and I think “super mom” could have asked for help sooner. I had amazing support from friends with my children. They helped me to work though the depression, which I eventually did, but my regret is I didn't do it earlier. We often deny that we are depressed, feeling that it is just a slump, or thinking we have so much to be grateful for, so how can we feel down? Or, we compare ourselves to others and think, their lives are so tough, so I should be fine. In some ways I sup-
pose I saw it as a sign of weakness to not be completely healthy. Would people have thought less of me if I admitted my depression? And what I understand now is, not at all. Now the way I see it, there is no shame in asking for help. As well, what I learned in my grief group, is that grief, or depression, is not a contest to see whose pain is worse, or whose story is sadder. It is ours and our life. If you feel you need help and or medication, get it. And do it for your self. We do our best as parents when we are feeling our best on all levels. I was given the tools to help myself, which has been so beneficial. I'll miss the buying of new school supplies and new clothes, packing lunches, driving to school and other events, homework, wake-up calls, worrying about teachers and other kids, whether they ate or not, and on it goes. Ahhh we survived it. Maybe it’s time for me to take a new class at the college.

Eye-tuned to ArtWalk CHRIS LAW Black Press
CHRIS LAW/ LAKE COUNTRY CALENDAR
Lake Country artist Jim Hayes jazzes up old pianos with a splash of colour in preparation for this year’s ArtWalk.
An event that many Okanaganbased artists consider the art show of the year is less than a month away. The volunteers who organize Lake Country’s annual ArtWalk are in the midst of making the final preparations for the twoday show that will take place Sept. 10 and 11 at the Lake Country Community Complex. ArtWalk is put on as a themed event with this year’s motif being “Eye Tunes.” Sharon McCoubrey, chairwoman for the show, said the theme has challenged organizers with a creative exercise in contrasting the differences between art forms that are experienced visually versus aurally. In keeping with the theme, Greg Metz has been invited to attend the show as the featured artist. Much of Metz’s sculpture is inspired by music and represents visual interpretations of it. A sample of his work can be found in Creekside Park behind the IGA, where his metalwork sculpture of kokanee and herons sits. Local luthiers and piano manufacturers will also be onsite demonstrating their craft. Instruments in various stages of completion will be on display, while their creators will work in front of audiences to show the
intricacies that go into making an instrument. “We’ve found over the years that for a lot of people one of the most interesting things that ArtWalk offers is the chance for people to see the work that actually goes into creating a piece of art,” said McCoubrey. The instruments won’t be the only opportunity to see art in action. Painters will perform by listening to music and painting to it. McCoubrey says it’s going to be interesting to see how different painters portray the music. Even the decorations for ArtWalk will tie into the Eye Tunes theme. Large portraits of 24 of history’s most famous composers are in the midst of being painted, enormous banners depicting musical notation are being finished, and broken pianos are being given new life as pieces of decorated art. Each of the 300 artists with work featured in the juried show are also invited to create one additional piece of work to be displayed in a theme gallery. The gallery is displayed prominently at ArtWalk and after the weekend, it moves as a collection over to the Lake Country Art Gallery where it will stay for several weeks. However, not everything at
ArtWalk is necessarily themerelated. Some showcases and activities have been so well received in the past that they are back by popular demand once again. “The paint-off is always a big draw,” said McCoubrey. “A group of artists paints the same subject for a set time—15 minutes or so—and each painter interprets the subject in his or her own way.” The interactive part of ArtWalk has always attracted a large number of participants and there will be plenty of opportunities for individuals to exercise their artistic talents. Acrylic painting, stone carving and live model drawing are a few of the activities being planned, said McCoubrey, adding ArtWalk strives to generate public interest in the arts. Efforts are made to make the show accessible to everyone no matter their previous experience with art. Art is important for everyone because it helps to enable personal growth through creative thinking and diversifying interests. said McCoubrey. ArtWalk runs Sept. 10 and 11, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. Admission is $2 per person. Anyone interested in volunteering or donating unusable musical instruments for decorative purposes can contact McCoubrey at 250-766-4406.
Coldstream artist to have work appear in magazine Morning Star Staff
A Coldstream artist is about to have her work published on the cover on an international magazine in commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11. Becky Strube’s acrylic painting, entitled Crucible of Chaos, will be the cover artwork for the September issue of American Psychologist, a magazine that has been publishing since the 1940s with an international readership in the hundreds of thousands. Although, she has been to Ground Zero, while in New York in 2006 to sing with the Aura Chamber Choir in a concert at Carnegie Hall featuring works composed and conducted by her husband Imant Raminsh, Strube says Crucible of Chaos was not painted specifically for the 9/11 com-
memorative cover. “How that search led to my art being chosen involves a bit of serendipity as well as music and poetry, which is fitting given my other interests,” she said. Strube was given the commission after the magazine’s Torontobased art editor, psychologist Kate F. Hays, saw her work. Becky Strube Quaternity, a choralorchestral cantata composed by Raminsh, which Strube wrote the lyrics for, was premiered in May in Toronto by the Orpheus Choir after its rousing premiere a year ago in the Okanagan.
Hays, who just happened to be singing in the choir, noticed the art reproduced on the cover of the music. “The painting on the cover intrigued me. I had no idea who the artist was, yet the sheer energy, power and movement of the image drew my eye in,” she said. Even with her foot in the door, Strube had to submit additional artworks, alongside five international artists invited for consideration by the magazine’s arts editors for the auspicious 9/11 issue and cover. (A recent AP cover featured well-known Canadian artist Ted Harrison.) The U.S. editor made the final decision to feature Strube’s art. “We searched broadly for an image that would be appropriate for this issue of the journal. The intention was to choose a
painting that would be experienced a number of ways as befit the occasion, and the wide range of article topics,” said Hays. Although an architectural designer by profession, Strube studied visual arts at the former Banff School of Fine Arts, and has studied painting in Vernon with Holly Middleton, Charlene Woodbury, Barry Rafuse, Jude Clarke, Heidi Thompson, Maria Maryniak, among others. She has also participated in sculpture workshops with Deborah Wilson. Strube has exhibited and sold her art in the Okanagan, served on local and provincial arts boards, and has always been an ardent arts advocate. The September issue of American Psychologist will also include a background article both about Strube and on her art.

ing, burning, slicing... there’s really no end to how the poor young unknown actors (well, save for comedy vet David Koechner, who plays the idiot boss) get eliminated. Final Destination 5 is a little more over-thetop in its gore, which
is either good news or bad news, depending on your tolerance and/ or stomach. It’s probably the best entry in the series, but then, is that really a huge compliment? The feature is currently playing at Galaxy Cinemas in Vernon.

KYLE BREWER Got an itch … don’t scratch it. It’s easy to say but often difﬁcult to do. Scratching makes the itch worse. Try ice compresses for temporary relief. Even hot compresses can be helpful. The elderly and diabetics should use caution when using heat. Good oral hygiene requires brushing our teeth at least twice daily and ﬂossing at least once daily. Using a ﬂuoride toothpaste and a soft brush are important to keep gums healthy. Good brushing should take at least two minutes. The term “birth control” was ﬁrst used in 1914. In 1916, Margaret Sanger opened the ﬁrst birth control clinic in the U.S. It was promptly closed down by the police. It wasn’t until 1960 that the ﬁrst birth control pill came on the market. A.S.A. is a wonderful drug but some people shouldn’t take it for various reasons. Products like Pepto-Bismol and Alka-Selzer both contain forms of A.S.A. If you are unsure about these or any other medication, talk to our pharmacists. Besides knowing about the older products in pharmacy and medicine, we work hard to keep current on all the new medications and therapies. Use our knowledge to increase your knowledge.

Arts Neighbouring artists dig up treasures Morning Star Staff
They’ve been acquaintances, associated by their artistic talents, for years, and now Armstrong neighbours Jamie Frazer and Frances Hatfield are pooling their talents –– and treasures. The women are hosting an art show and sale they are calling Yart, as it takes place in their respective yards, Sunday, Aug. 28. Formerly based in Enderby, Frazer moved to Armstrong more than a year ago, moving down the street from Hatfield. “It was a happy coincidence,” said Frazer, who paints impressionist-style acrylics on canvasses from walls and signs to windows and furniture. Also an instructor, who has conducted classes at her studio, Frazer will have painted furniture, functional art pieces, paintings, art cards and more on display and for sale in her garden and studio.

Glennon goes in a different direction GRAEME CORBETT Morning Star Staff
A familiar face is about to leave Vernon’s downtown business core. Lucy Glennon, owner of Interior Gift Gallery and supporter of the Vernon Downtown Association (DVA) for the last 25 years, is handing the business over to long-time employee Carol Owen and her sister Debbie Kowalchuk. Glennon plans to join husband John Glennon, who works with Sandler Training, a business management and sales development firm. The move will allow her to work from home and be closer to her two boys, Liam and Connor, ages nine and 12 respectively. In 1986, Glennon was going to school in Alberta when her mother, Siegrid Wagner, became too ill to run the store. She decided to return to Vernon and slowly began to take over the business reigns. One of her first priorities was to get involved with the downtown business community, and quickly became a member of the DVA. “I always found it was really important to be involved with what’s going on down here. It’s pretty hard to have an opinion about something when you’re not involved with it. You have to do your part to make change,” said Glennon, who credits Chris Roland, former co-ordinator of the business improvement area (BIA), for instigating many of the changes and revitalization of the downtown area that took place in the mid-90s. Following the newly implemented BIA design guidelines, Interior Gift Gallery, opened by Wagner in 1983, became the first building to undergo a facelift. “We took our building and stripped off all the layers and we created what it is now. It looks exactly like it used to (in 1894),” she said, noting the contractor sourced photos from the Greater Vernon Museum and Archives to ensure accuracy. “That was really important to me, keeping the design guidelines and the heritage look of downtown. That’s what kind of sets us apart. “My only regret is that we didn’t vote on it all at once; to do the whole downtown, versus doing it in stages. I guess hindsight is 20/20.” Over the years, Glennon has watched DVA initiatives such as the mural program and Sunshine Festival transform from fledgling projects into key visitor attractions. “It (Sunshine Festival) just used to be a street sale with a few merchants out on the street with a few tables. Now it’s a festival with all the bands and the vendors. It just grew into a much bigger thing,” said Glennon, who eventually stepped back her DVA duties when she had children.
GRAEME CORBETT/MORNING STAR
Lucy Glennon is leaving Interior Gift Gallery after 25 years as owner. A driving force behind the downtown revitalization project in the mid-1990s, she is moving on to work with husband John Glennon. Pat Cochrane, owner of Vernon Lock & Safe and former DVA vice-president, recalled Glennon’s efforts in supporting the downtown business core during her time as president. He also credited her as being one of the driving forces behind the downtown revitalization project in its infancy. “She was certainly a strong advocate on behalf of the downtown merchants. She put a lot of effort into the DVA,” said Cochrane, a Coldstream councillor and former Vernon councillor. “She will be missed; she was a strong presence.” Glennon can leave Interior Gift Gallery with the knowl-
edge it will remain in caring hands. “I’m happy it’s Carol that’s taking over the business. She’s been working for me for 24 years. We joke that most people think she owns the store,” smiled Glennon. “Since I had children, I don’t work here full time. She’s basically the face of Interior Gift Gallery.” Over the years, Glennon estimates the company has donated $40,000 to various local charities – hospice, food bank, hospital foundation, diabetes – through its gift wrapping program. She is also involved in the Pamper Your Palate charity silent auction.

strategic knowledge is not capable of making good decisions in a changing environment. A senior manager without knowledge of the organization’s vision and values lacks the most basic tools to take the right risk at the right time. It is that simple. In an environment that can only be described as a strategic vacuum, silos evolve naturally; there is no broad interdepartmental co-operation – the production of value through synergy – because there is no sense of context. Your business will not anticipate change, let alone learn from it. Avoid silos by talking with your senior managers about how changes to the external environment affect what your organization is trying to achieve: the wheat of the matter. At the individual level, lifelong learning requires a voluntary and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge over the course of one's life. At the business level, lifelong learning needs an organizational structure that treats every node in your value network – including customers and senior managers - as coproducers of value. Tate Bengtson is the executive director of the Enderby & District Chamber of Commerce.

Business Trailer company competes
Morning Star Staff
Vernon’s Wolf Trailer Company has reached the third round of the 11th annual BCIC-New Ventures Competition, one of North America’s largest technology business idea competitions. On Aug. 31, the top10 contestants of the current 25 will advance to the final round, with the opportunity to pitch their business to a panel of experts for a chance at a share of more than $360,000 in prizes. Wolf Trailer is addressing the fact that B.C. has the highest fatality rates in Canada resulting from accidents between cars and trucks. One of the
reasons is that many of these vehicles cannot comply with basic safety standards when carrying full loads. Wolf Trailer has developed and tested a roll-coupling technology that enables commercial trucks and trailers to comply with safety standards in order to improve safety without reducing productivity. Trailers typically have a very high center of gravity and roll over very easily because hitches do not transmit roll stability between vehicles. Roll-coupling technology provides roll stability and enables the truck driver to feel how unstable the trailer unit

The MV Northern Expedition provides a 22-hour cruise through the Inside Passage to Prince Rupert.
From coast to canyon CHERIE THIESSEN Special To The Morning Star
B.C. - The snowcloaked Coast Mountains elbow the Skeena River, dripping long, silvery waterfalls, and thereâ€™s a tang of cottonwood wafting through the van window as we dawdle down Highway 16 from Prince Rupert to Prince George. Also known as the Yellowhead Highway, the narrow road invites a slower pace. We pull over to gawk and guzzle tea in our snug little RV. Weâ€™re giddy with endless choices and wideopen spaces. Day one took us 500 kilometres up Vancouver Island from Victoria to Port Hardy, and if that wasnâ€™t scenic enough, we then indulged in a spectacular 22-hour Inside Passage cruise to Prince Rupert, aboard the MV Northern Expedition. Soon after, we squeezed into Grenville Channel, rubbing shoulders with forest and rock. And then came the killer whales. Chief steward Lorne Campbell says theyâ€™re the star attraction. â€œWe often see them, especially around Bella Bella and the southern section, mostly humpbacks, sometimes orcas, and grey whales during migrations.â€? Day three started with a detour to the North Pacific Cannery Museum at Port Edward. Established in 1889, itâ€™s the oldest remaining fish cannery on North Americaâ€™s west coast.
CHERIE THIESSEN PHOTO
The North Pacific Cannery in Port Edward is a national historic site. Each building, perched on wood pilings along the banks of the Inverness Passage, tells a story about the lost industry and the workers who lived here. On this trip, we meet raucous rivers, but while the scenery is a big attraction, so is First Nations culture. This afternoon weâ€™re heading to Old Hazelton and â€˜Ksan, a historical Gitksan village at the confluence of the Bulkley and Skeena rivers. Camping at â€˜Ksan after wandering among the totems and lodges allows us to absorb the spirit of this culture. After a sleep interlaced with the sound of frogs, weâ€™re off to join Highway 97 at Prince George, taking time out for lakeside camping at Fort Fraser. Day five catches us climbing the 81 kilometres to Barkerville, where Billy Barker struck it rich in 1862 but wound up dying in a pauperâ€™s grave. Snow still squats on each side of the muddy street as dainty damsels in period costume lift their sweeping petticoats, going about
their 19th century business in this historic gold rush town. We eat doughnuts from the bakery, watch the blacksmith at work, take in a performance at the Theatre Royal. Day six. We cruise alongside grasslands with the ubiquitous
Coast Mountains a smudge in the sky. Ponderosa pine and sagebrush appear, and we join the TransCanada Highway at Cache Creek. Just before Lytton, is Kumsheen, a tiny but glorious strip of campsites, tents, tepees and adventure,
sandwiched between the Thompson and the road. The sunâ€™s out and Kumsheen is famous for white water rafting. We spend an extra day here. Day eight and we`re smack dab in the Fraser Canyon, swaying high over Hellâ€™s Gate on the airtram. As you dangle over that boiling stew, just imagine how Simon Fraser felt approaching in his flimsy canoe. Our last day is spent in Vancouver. The circle is complete. B.C.â€™s scenery, history, attractions, and recreation keep pulling us back on the road. Cherie Thiessen is with Travel Writersâ€™ Tales, an independent travel article syndicate.

Activity Horoscope BY BERNICE BEDE OSOL There is a strong possibility that you could find yourself involved in an endeavor that is a total departure from your usual interests. You’ll be involving yourself with new people, equipment and systems, and you’ll have a great time.
PUZZLE NO. 203
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) This is one of those days when it pays to operate as independently as you possibly can. Noncontributors could muddle things up so badly that you might have to throw in the towel on what you’re doing.
ANSWER TO PUZZLE NO. 203
HOW TO PLAY: Fill-in the grid so that every row, every column and every 3x3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. Each 3x3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3x3 box. 101227

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Don’t waste your time talking about your intentions. Spend all your time and energy on first laying out your plan of attack and then performing whatever it is you want to accomplish. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Usually you’re the type of person who doesn’t impose your will upon others. However, without realizing it, you could step out of character and become very demanding of your companions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 22) If your mate isn’t around and you haven’t conferred with him or her about an important matter, hold off on making a decision on your own. A collective vision will be far superior. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 23-Dec. 21) It is extremely important to make sure your attention is totally focused on the task at hand. A huge mistake is likely to be made the moment your mind begins to wander. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) It’s always imperative to manage your resources wisely, but not doing now so could cause larger than usual penalties. Think twice before jumping into a speculative involvement. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 19) Although you won’t hesitate to champion an unpopular cause, think twice before you do so. Fighting for something that’s being blocked by the majority could put you in a bad light. PISCES (Feb. 20-March 20) Unless you are methodical and purposeful, you are
likely to make even little jobs tougher on yourself than they need be. If you do take on anything, look before you leap. ARIES (March 21-April 19) Be careful about the companions you select, because they’re likely to govern how much you’ll spend. Those who have no respect for what things cost could wipe you out. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) It’s okay to want to accomplish a lot, but if you take on more than you can handle, you might end up spreading your forces too thin and doing a mediocre job on everything. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) If your ego causes you to try to bluff your way through on what you truly cannot do, the results are likely to turn out to be embarrassing. Be honest about your experience and abilities. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Be careful about butting into situations that don’t directly concern you, because you might be sticking your snoot into something that carries dire consequences.

Contest seeks best walks KOLBY SOLINSKY Black Press
If you have a favourite trail, trot spot, or walking route – whatever you want to call it – here’s your chance to show it off. The government of B.C. has started the Healthy Families B.C. Walking Challenge. Anyone and everyone is encouraged to go online and submit photos, videos or stories for their respective communities. So far, several people have flocked online to www. healthyFamiliesBCWalkingChallenge.ca and there are maps setup for each submission that provide directions, length, and the difficulty of each trail. For added motivation, each person who submits a walk will be entered into a draw to win one of 200 prizes (30 winners each week), as well as six weekend getaways and a grand prize of $50,000 that will go to one winning community. “It’s a pretty fun challenge and it sounds like a great way to win some prizes,” said 2010 Olympic gold medallist Maelle Ricker at the Walking Challenge’s opening announcement. There have been tons of submissions so far, and routes include everything from hightempo power hikes to casual strolls. Whether you like to get out by yourself, with a friend, or with your whole family, everything is welcome. The government is hoping that the Walking Challenge gets people outside and promotes a healthy, active lifestyle. “I believe in exercise and getting outside with your family, your friends, with your dog, your pets, whoever it might be to get exercise and not only for the exercise component but just to enjoy the environment,” said Ricker. “Enjoy your province.” The contest runs until Sept. 19 when winners will be chosen from a host of hundreds of routes. “Stay active and stay

By Earl Hansen Here in the early stages of the 21st Century one of the most common complaints about contemporary living is that there just isn’t enough time to do things anymore. Time demands at work, time demands at home and deadlines at school, social organizations, etc., etc.
Need a new “do”? … talented stylists
There just doesn’t seem to be time to have a haircut, shop for a dress, have a tall-cool-one at the pub, or get that relaxing massage that you have been longing for for months.

WELCOME TO YOUR CALM OASIS
“Sorry I am late dear, I looked at the clock tower and I thought I had plenty of time.” Try that on for size the next time you need an excuse. So If you want to get away from the kitchen then it’s time to come Downtown to try one of our 50 or more dining establishments featuring a wide range of Canadian and ethnic cuisine. Have a drink. Have a desert. Remember you have that extra time now.
Catherine Christensen RMT
If you are tired of all the items in your clothes closet come to Downtown Time Free Zone and pick out a colourful dress or a comfortable pair of shorts to wear during that great late summer weather that still lies ahead. Take your time trying on various different items. Remember it is any time you want it to be.
If you just need a short break to have a haircut or a styling, drive, bicycle or walk Downtown where the line-ups are short and the service is friendly.
Grand Opening Celebration!
The Downtown core is sort of a Time Freeze Zone anyway with all those historic characters on the murals depicting a more relaxed era when horses and bicycles were the main means of transportation.

Bridge by Phillip Alder Another well-timed aggressive raise Yesterday’s and today’s deals occurred during a social game and have an identical theme -- one player, who requested anonymity, made a welltimed raise of his partner’s suit. With which of the chosen calls do you disagree? The ﬁrst three calls, East’s pass, South’s weak two-bid, and West’s takeout double, were “normal.” Now North would have been expected to pass because he had just two hearts, and the Law of Total Tricks advises bidding to the three-level only with nine combined hearts. However, his three-heart raise trapped his opponents. Their best
contract was three notrump, but who could bid that? East should have made a responsive double, showing the values to act but with nothing better to do. Then West might have gambled on three notrump. Or he might have passed, which would have been all right with best defense. Or he would have bid four clubs and gone down one, losing one heart and three diamonds. When three hearts was passed out, West led the club king and continued with a low club to East’s ace. East shifted to a low trump, South putting in his 10 and West ducking. Declarer played a diamond to dummy’s jack and a heart to his nine. Now West should have switched to a spade, East
being marked with at least one high honor there. But West led the club queen, so South ruffed, drew the last trump, and ran the diamonds to make his contract, losing two clubs, one heart and one spade. Just in case you are wondering, I was not North -- I was South.
