But, as Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod heads back to Ottawa for her second term, large pensions for federal politicians isn't an issue she wants to discuss. When asked by KTW if she thought the current MP pension scheme was fair, McLeod said she won't speak to pensions specifically. "We need to be looking across government in terms of what we're doing and where we're going and how we're going to get back to a balanced budget," she said. The current pension plan for MPs has taxpayers contributing $4 for every dollar contributed by an MP. MPs are eligible for their pensions after serving six years. Nine defeated or retiring MPs from B.C. are set to collect a combined $18.6 million in pension benefits now that they are out of office. All qualifying B.C. MPs can opt to start col- lecting their pensions immediately. The Canadian Taxpayers Federation (CTF) argued the pension system for federal politicians is too rich. It favours a dollar-for-dollar matching formula now used in Saskatchewan and Ontario. McLeod wouldn't tell KTW if she favoured the dollar-for-dollar formula, noting there hasn't been a discussion in her government to change the formula. CTF national research director Derek Fildebrandt said former MPs turfed by voters this week or who chose to retire "should find a nice soft landing with their golden parachute. "The vast majority of Canadians working in the private sector have no private pension plan of their own and those few who do normally have defined-contribution, RRSP-style plans," Fildebrandt said. "Most Canadians have to save for their retirements the old-fashion way. MPs, by contrast, are guaranteed a steady payout regardless of how investments and the market perform." The biggest payout will go to Liberal MP Keith Martin, who retired from his EsquimaltJuan de Fuca seat with a pension that adds up to $3.9 million.

Conservatives Jay Hill (Prince George-Peace River) and Chuck Strahl (Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon), both retired from federal politics with $3.3-million pensions. Tory MP John Cummins (Delta-Richmond East), who retired from federal politics to head the B.C. Conservative Party, now gets a pension worth $1.33 million. Conservative retiree Stockwell Day (Okanagan-Coquihalla) gets a package worth $1.67 million, Kootenay-Columbia Tory MP Jim Abbott retires with $1.36 million and the NDP's Bill Siksay (Burnaby-Douglas) takes away $732,000. Two MPs defeated in Monday's federal election -- Conservative Dona Cadman (Surrey North) and Liberal Sukh Dhaliwal (NewtonNorth Delta) -- did not serve the minimum six years to qualify for the MP pension. Instead, they will receive $79,000 in severance pay. ANNUAL PENSION PAYOUTS A sampling of what some ertswhile B.C.

Residential trash pickup in Kamloops is once a week, which means most residents leave their grey collection bin on the street four times a month. Whether they're full or not, that's quite a bit of garbage. In April, a local family set out to try to go the entire month without producing any garbage. They nearly succeeded. "There was a little bit," said Marcia Dick, who, along with husband Trevor and their 17-month-old daughter Elianna, tried to live trash-free for four weeks. "Dental floss is something we couldn't avoid. And, we went swimming a few times, so we had the wristbands." The Dick family's garbage for the month of April fits inside a banker's box. Items include the aforementioned floss, an empty pasta bag, BandAids and a wine foil. There is also a plastic grocery bag filled with other plastic bags. That, Marcia said, is from a cupboard purge in the second week of April. She got rid of all bags and wrappers, opting instead to keep kitchen ingredients in jars. T Other items in the box include an empty bag of frozen prawns, broken tongs, a piece of tape, an ice-cream carton and a small piece of gauze. Not a lot of garbage for a family of three. But, Marcia said, luck was also on her side in April. "I had a really clumsy month," she said. "I broke about seven dishes." Those shards would normally end up in the garbage. But, as luck would have it, the Dicks held a garage sale and one of the shoppers who showed up was a woman looking to build a birdhouse out of smashed plates and mugs. "I was like, `You're not going to believe what I've got for you,'" Marcia said. Marcia works as a waste consultant with the Thompson-Nicola Regional District. Marcia Dick, husband Trevor and 17-month-old daughter Elianna will continue in their attempt to live a waste-free life.

Landscapes suited to our semi-arid climate conserve water and have an advantage over pest problems. Apply these principles to any garden style and have a healthy, high quality landscape: 1. Planning and design: Group plants according to their water use. Slope hard surfaces to drain to planted areas. Avoid steep slopes � create terraces instead. Use groundcovers on gentle slopes. 2. Good soils: Organic matter is an excellent soil amendment. It improves moisture holding capacity in sandy soils and helps to loosen clay soils. 3. Appropriate plant selection: Drought tolerant plants thrive here. There are many beautiful trees, shrubs and flowers with low water needs. 4. Practical turf areas: Replace unused lawns with other plants. Use hardsurfacing for play courts, patios, and walkways. 5. Water wisely: Water deeply, but infrequently to encourage deep rooting and drought-tolerance. 6. Mulch: Apply a layer of organic matter to: protect roots from elements, enrich soil, and control weeds. 7. Lower maintenance: Your landscape will require less maintenance over time.

Yukon Community Newspaper Association's Ma Murray Awards in Richmond. LEADERSHIP AND CERTAINTY A CHOICE FOR CANADIANS Thank you very much for putting your faith in me to carry your wishes to Ottawa. You have my utmost commitment that I will represent everyone in this region to the best of my abilities. I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the other candidates for their efforts in bringing the issues of this riding to the forefront. It is truly an honour to serve this constituency and I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely Cathy McLeod MP-Elect Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo KTW wins national, provincial awards Kamloops This Week came away from last weekend's provincial and national newspaper awards conference with a national and provincial award and a pair of final-three placings. KTW's Dale Bass won the award for Horizon Publications Columnist of the Year the B.C. Yukon Community Newspaper Association's Ma Murray Awards. At the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards banquet, Kamloops This Week won the award for best headline writing and finished second nationally in the category of best holiday newspaper edition. KTW photographer Dave Eagles placed third nationally in the category of best spot news photo (right). At the Canadian Community Newspaper Awards level, judge Kelly Lapointe commented on dog named Danny became trapped in a pipe. The headline: "Oh Danny boy! The pipes, the pipes were calling." Remarking on Eagles' photo of a resident sent into the street by a fire in his Westsyde home, judge Lyonel Doherty wrote: "Looking at the photo really made me feel for the distraught homeowner. "When I first started poring over the 46 entries, this was the photo I immediately set aside, knowing it would likely make the top three. "Dave definitely caught the moment here; a second later and it may have been lost. "Photographers who want to win categories like this have to step out of their comfort zone and go where others are afraid to go. "Being there at the right time helps, too." KTW's headline-writing entries: "Kamloops This Week did a great job of showing creative flair while using the elements of the story given, without trying too hard and making too many leaps to tie everything together. "Great, accurate wordplay that leaves an impact -- just an overall impressive effort that stuck with me." One of the three headlines submitted was one for a story about a KIISS MY BUD! KISS MY BUD!

Dave Eagles/KTW A weekend to honour our war veterans By Jessica Wallace email@example.com STAFF REPORTER Flags and candles will adorn graves at the Pleasant Street and Hillside cemeteries on Sunday, May 8, in honour of those who have served and passed away. This is the 12th year of the candlelight-vigil ceremony organized by the Anavets in conjunction with Victory in Europe (VE) Day. Anavets, Rocky Mountain Rangers, scouts, cadets and cubs will spread the candles and flags, while Rev. Sandra Sudgen and Rev. Isabel Healy-Morrow conduct the services. "November 11 is for those who fought and died in service since World War I, while this is for those who came home and have since passed," said Mary Nelson, chairwoman of the Anavets in Kamloops. The candlelight vigil will honour the memory of Canadian veterans, who may or may not have served in war, and service people, including firefighters, peacekeepers, RCMP, paramedics and search and rescue personnel. "All of these people put their lives at risk for us at some point," Nelson said. Prayers will be said for each group of service. The candles will stay lit throughout the night in honour of those who have risked their lives. "If it wasn't for them, we wouldn't be here and we would have a lot of tough times," Nelson said. The Pleasant Street Cemetery service begins at 5 p.m. and the Hillside Cemetery service begins at 7 p.m. on Sunday, May 8. All are welcome to attend. Those wishing to have someone honoured, wishing to volunteer and/or wishing to make a donation can contact the Anavets at 250-5542455. c are ritter IT'S POND PREP TIME! Andrea � Supervisor � Spring is well underway in Kamloops and that means it's time for some preparations to get your backyard ponds ready for summer enjoyment! Heather,Andrea, and Trish, some of our pond experts at Petland, have put their heads together to come up with a few simple start-up tips for you. 1) Begin by scooping the decaying leaves and debris out of your pond. Drain some of the water with a siphon if needed and scrub down rocks and surfaces to loosen algae buildup. 2) Fill with fresh water and add Laguna Water Prep (whenever you add tap water) to the water at 50 ML to 265 US gallons of water. This product removes chlorine and chloramines, is safe for fish and plants and actually adds a protective coating to existing fish. 3) Prepare and start up filter. 4) Add Laguna Bio Booster to your water at the same ratio as the Water Prep. This product boosts the biological efficiency of ponds, reduces and controls toxic ammonia and nitrites, matures filter media and instantly activates your water. 5) A favourite product of Heather's is Tetra Pond Barley and Peat Extract. Adding it now will prevent algae buildup. Use 10ml per 50 U.S. Gallons every two weeks throughout pond season. 6) If your water is looking cloudy, simply treat with Laguna's Clear Fast at 50ml per 265 U.S. Gallons. It acts fast to clear water and clumps debris for easier removal. � Note: Calculating gallonage is as easy as measuring Length(Ft) times Width(Ft) times average Depth(Ft) = Cubic Feet. Cubic Feet multiplied by 7 equals Pond Gallons. .5 � It is too early yet to be introducing new fish to your pond. The water in your pond must be maintaining a steady 10 deg. C, even overnight, before adding fish. Please don't feed your existing fish until water maintains a steady 8 deg. C. and then feed Wheat Germ Spirulina food which is easier to digest in cooler temperatures. � Next week we'll talk about those new fish in that sparkly clear pond!

One is that this election, despite many predictions to the contrary at its start, energized many voters -- at least the 61 per cent of eligible voters who did cast a ballot. The second thing it clearly showed is that most Canadians see national issues from one of two major perspectives -- the less government/ lower taxes/law and order perspective of the Conservatives or the more activist government/expanding programs/ tax the rich perspective of the NDP. The Liberals, in trying to strike a balance between the two perspectives, found little traction. They will be less of a force in the next Parliament and leader Michael Ignatieff is finished. The third and most positive thing is the rejection of the Bloc Quebecois by the vast majority of Quebecers, relegating the party to four seats. For the first time since 1988, most MPs elected in Quebec support their province being part of Canada. This is an enormous step forward. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is now in power with a majority. He pledged to work with other parties and govern for all Canadians. That pledge will be tested many times. NDP Leader Jack Layton, who ran a positive and upbeat campaign, is now the leader of the Official Opposition. As such, although he might speak with more clout, he's not in a position of any greater power. Less, in fact, given the end to any coalition pressure. In articulating his vision of Canada, Layton will have to be more realistic about how the economy works and how jobs are created. However, his emphasis on preserving important social programs like health care and ensuring average families get decent tax breaks is needed, at a time when many people are struggling. The people of Canada, from many disparate regions of the country, have spoken. They want Parliament to get down to business, without any unnecessary drama or an election for at least four years.

Reproduction is expressly prohibited by the rightsholder. XACTLY ONE WEEK ago today, we published a newspaper -- the Friday, April 30 edition -- that was our last print edition before the Monday, May 2, federal election. The first six pages were dedicated to campaign coverage, including a front-page photo from the last and largest all-candidates debate that showed Conservative candidate Cathy McLeod and NDP candidate Michael Crawford, the only two candidates with a chance of being elected in Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo. The debate was largely uneventful, with the only real spark coming when McLeod or Crawford spoke and one or the other responded verbally or via a head shake, a wry smile or a look of incredulity. We had dozens and dozens of photos from which to choose, most being static, boring shots of all five candidates sitting at a long table. Our photographer, Dave Eagles, did get some close-up photos of various candidates and I decided to run a horizontal picture of the candidates and larger, square photos of the frontrunners: McLeod throwing Crawford an "are you kidding me?" look and Crawford with a clenched jaw as he decried Conservative policies. These two pics summed up, in my opinion, the debate and the campaign. It has been a Conservative-NDP race for the past seven years in Kamloops and it became a Conservative-NDP race nationally as election day neared. CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom MUSINGS On Monday, May 2, I walked into the office and checked my voicemail. A gentleman called to register an official complaint with respect to the photo of McLeod we ran on the front page. It did not look like her, he said, and requested we run another photo. What this reader and others need to understand is a newspaper is not a portrait studio. Our photographers are not tasked with going to news events to get pictures that show people in the best light. Our photographers are tasked with getting the best photos in connection to the event. Eagles' shot of McLeod tossing Crawford that look is a great pic. It is great because it is not staged. It is great because it is real. It is great because, in one frame, it sums up much of the debate: McLeod spent a lot of time making faces of doubt as Crawford spoke of NDP policies or attacked Conservative ones. Appearance is in the eye of the beholder. If the reader who called believes the photo of McLeod was unflattering, that is one subjective view. I see a photo of a passionate politician expressing many emotions via her countenance -- nothing more. It's odd, really. I received a call a few years ago from another McLeod supporter, arguing a photo we ran of her speaking was a "bad photo." Yet, it was a real photo, a snapshot in time that showed the MP engaging an audience -- something far more interesting than a politician flashing the pearly whites in a pixelized version of sanitized reality. Seems to me those who disagree with publication of these photos are more preoccupied with the superficial and should instead focus on the issues from which these photos are created. One can scroll through the photo rolls of myriad newspapers and find much to criticize: The 1972 photo showing Conservative leader Robert Stanfield dropping a football; the 1984 photo showing Liberal leader John Turner wearing shadow devil's horns; the 2005 photo of Conservative leader Stephen Harper wearing a leather vest and cowboy hat; the 1997 photo of Bloc Quebecois leader Gilles Duceppe wearing a hairnet. These are photos of reality, as was the photo in KTW of McLeod at the debate, and reality resonates. email@example.com chrisfoulds.blogspot.com www.kamloopsthisweek.com FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 A9 KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com YOUROPINION drive is deemed capable. The concern I have is the discouraging and perhaps unfair process used when singling out seniors to determine if they are still safe to drive. First, mom needed to pay $80 for a physical exam from her doctor. Next, there was a cognitive test administered. In order to re-activate her driver's licence (which was automatically cancelled), she was told the fee for the next test from DriveSafe BC would be $300, but they were kind enough to waive that fee for her first attempt. After waiting for nearly three months to hear from the DriveSafe BC office, mom took charge of the situation and, through her efforts, was able to unravel the reason for the lengthy delay. Apparently, when one office was communicating with the other office, someone used the wrong fax number to send the request for testing. An easy mistake that anyone could make, but it was my mom who had to step in and solve the problem for the "experts". Incompetence is perhaps a strong word to consider, but simply following up to ensure mom's needs were being taken care of would have been a thoughtful gesture. Next, the test to show competence may have been complicated enough to keep most of us safely off the road. I'm wondering if the test was designed to save ICBC money by simply reducing the numbers of seniors on the roads. I sometimes feel safer when I know a driver has demonstrated a lifetime worth of safe driving than some of the younger speed freaks out there. Yes, there is a need to monitor everyone's driving skills -- and seniors certainly need to be able to demonstrate their driving skills are still competent. Whether or not mom is granted permission to continue driving, one thing is certain -- I am proud to have such a great mom! Gordon Paul Leschyson Kamloops Appreciating mom on the weekend for mothers Editor: Our family recently celebrated my mom's 90th birthday. What an inspiration she is. She is filled with a glowing energy that is usually reserved only for angels. During our weekly walks together with the rest of the family, mom is still hard to keep up with as we climb the steep hills of Aberdeen and Sahali. In fact, she could be mistaken for a 60-year-old as she skitters from one garage sale to the next. She has been blessed with clarity of mind and is still clearly the leader during intellectual debates. Mom has maintained her independence by driving her own car and managing her own affairs. Recently, the government decided that, based on her age, she needed to take a driver's test. Fair enough. It is easy to understand it is everyone's right to feel safe on the road and we need to ensure everyone who has the privilege to A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online Q&A WHAT'S YOUR TAKE?

VOTE ONLINE kamloopsthisweek.com Celebrate Birthmother's Day at Pregnancy Centre Editor: When the Pregnancy Care Centre of Kamloops opened four years ago, I was excited to learn of this much-needed service in our community and I immediately wanted to get involved. Since then, I have volunteered as a peer counsellor at the centre, assisting clients with unplanned pregnancies. At the Pregnancy Care Centre, our hope is to honour birthparents as we move forward with offering a monthly birthparents support group and celebrate Birthmother's Day on Saturday, May 7. Our goal in hosting a monthly support group is to recognize birthparents in the adoption process and assist them with making an informed choice through education and to offer a place to share their grief openly. As I look back at my own teenage pregnancy and having to make a fear-based decision, I can honestly say that, in 1989, I wished for a service like this to support me through a life-altering decision. As I went through the course of my decision, I ultimately choose to place my child for adoption. Through the years, I continue to look back on that choice, not as one of selfishness but one of sacrifice. My hope in writing this is to give a voice to other birthmothers and fathers who have had to make a difficult choice, go through their loss and who are often not recognized for their gift. I believe adoption is a great life plan for a child and for couples waiting for placements. At the Pregnancy Care Centre, we want to keep in mind that a planned adoption does not negate the pain of the loss for the birth parents. The Pregnancy Care Centre of Kamloops will be hosting an afternoon event for Birthmother's Day on Saturday, May 7. For more information, call 250-376-4646 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.

City council has approved a rezoning and development permit application to turn the former Rendezvous Hotel strip bar into a men's and women's emergency shelter. The plan is to renovate the hotel into a shelter with 11 transitional housing units, which will be run by the local chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association. The application was approved with no opposition at a public hearing on Tuesday night (May 3). The former hotel on West Victoria Street will eventually replace 50 existing shelter beds at both Emerald House and the Kamloops Christian Hostel. The Rendezvous CITY HALL was purchased last year by the Ministry of Housing for $853,000. The original renovation estimate was pegged at roughly $1.3 million but, after a feasibility study was completed, the cost jumped to $2.5 million. The strip club was shut down in October 2008 after a damning report by liquor inspectors led to its licence being yanked. Are You Ready to Change the Shape of Your Body?

FALSETTA SHOE REPAIR 108 Vernon Ave, North Kamloops SINCE 1961 STAFF REPORTER Kamloops midwives led a walk in Valleyview on Thursday, May 5, to raise awareness about the importance of midwives and to demonstrate the demand for them in local rural communities. Midwives, mothers and advocates from across B.C. participated in similar walks in conjunction with B.C. Midwives Day and International Day of the Midwife. This was the first time Kamloops midwives participated in the walk. "Some rural communities have maternal and newborn care that is comparable to Third� World nations," said Joanna Nemrava, a registered midwife who is head of the Department of Midwifery at Royal Inland Hospital and vice-president of the Canadian Association of Midwives. Nemrava and two other Kamloops midwives -- Elaine Barnes and Rosalynd Curry -- led the walk from Ralph Bell elementary to the Valleyview Community Hall. "Kamloops midwives travel to Merritt, Barriere, Ashcroft and Falkland," Nemrava said. "We've had someone travel here from as far as Bella Coola to see a midwife." Nemrava explained how midwives produce better maternity health care. "We know their health-care history, their values and offer a personal approach," Nemrava said. "It's women-centred care." B.C. midwives are university-educated, publicly funded and regulated health-care providers who offer full prenatal, postpartum and newborn care, with the option of receiving care at home or at RIH. They also provide culturally versatile care to recent immigrants and First Nations mothers. There are 200 registered midwives in B.C. who deliver more than 10 per cent of the 40,000 babies born annually in the province. "A lot of people don't know that it's covered by B.C. Medical," Nemrava said. International Day of the Midwife is held in more than 50 countries. The walk will now be held annually on May 5. 778-470-5180 Across from Extra Foods ITALO FALSETTA Quality Craftsmanship for over 50 years THANK YOU KAMLOOPS FOR 50 GREAT YEARS! Get Ready For Spring!

That is not the case for teenagers who were put through the paces this week at Westsyde elementary in the firstever Kamloops RCMP Youth Academy -- put on by the local police detachment and the Kamloops-Thompson School District. "We're looking to make it the first annual," said Greg Howard, SD73's district principal for trades and transitions. "It's going terrific." The long-closed school was transformed into a "mini Regina depot," Howard said, to give the troops a taste of what life as an RCMP recruit might be like. "They are enjoying every piece of it," Howard said. "Well, some parts of it they're happier with than other parts." Of the two dozen troops taking part, 17 are boys and seven are girls -- a combination of grades 11 and 12 and ranging in age from 16 to 18. Howard said they represent all high schools in SD73, plus St. Ann's Academy and schools in Merritt, Ashcroft, Williams Lake and 100 Mile House. The troops are loving the experience. "I thought it would be a really good opportunity and it would allow me to see what the real camp in Regina was like, and I think it has," said Kristen Lang, an 18-year-old Grade 12 student from NorKam. Travis Ormrod, a 17-year-old senior from St. Ann's, said he's always considered becoming an RCMP officer and thought the academy a great opportunity to pursue that. He said he's been surprised by how demanding it's been. "It's a lot harder than I thought," he said. "I thought I was in OK shape coming into this, but I guess I'm not." The students live in makeshift barracks in the elementary library. They shower in trailers outside the school and eat dormitory-style in an empty classroom. The police putting the camp on have high marks for the troops. "I'm very impressed with them," said Kamloops RCMP Const. Cheryl Bush. "They've pulled together and they've caught on very quickly with the team aspect." TD Waterhouse represents the products and services offered by TD Waterhouse Canada Inc.

The result? Many lending institutions are lowering interest rates like never before and are creating specialized niche products. Here are a few examples: 10 year mortgages � Looking for payment security over the long term? The 10 year mortgage is for people who find comfort in stable financial payments and want to limit their risk to potential high interest rates over the next decade. Zero down payment mortgages � Having trouble raising enough money for a down payment? The zero down mortgage offers buyers the chance to use only the lender's money to buy a home. The bank expects the borrower to have good credit and good employment to qualify. This type of product may allow you to buy now and stop paying high rents. 5% cash back mortgages � Can't afford that truck payment plus a mortgage? If you have a down payment, but can't afford to use it for both bill reduction and buying a home, then the cash back mortgage is an option. You can use the 5% for anything you want � home renovations, pay off bills, add to savings. Purchase plus improvements � Can't find anything in your price range you like? The purchase plus improvements mortgage allows you to increase your mortgage by up to 15% of your purchase price to renovate your home. This way, you can buy a less expensive home and renovate it the way you want � all included in your mortgage. This program does not cover pools and hot tubs, but roofs, walls, kitchens, bathrooms are fine. Purchase plus improvement mortgages are available at very competitive rates. Equity Mortgages � Has the bank said "no" because of your income, but you have strong equity in your home? There are lenders who will take into account the equity you have built up in your home and lend on that instead of income. 50% (50% ownership) and 65% (35% ownership) loan to value percentages are often acceptable to lenders. The lender will always ask for an appraisal and will expect the borrower to have excellent credit. Whether you are a first-time homebuyer, up for renewal or refinancing, there are many unique and competitive products available on the market today.

Directors of the Kamloops Voters Society (KVS), a group formed largely in opposition to the plan, said they remain opposed to the parkade and hinted they could start a counter-petition against the parkade when it comes time for the city to borrow the money to build the structure. "It's still in the park," said Bob Gamble, a KVS director, adding the group feels there are other parkade proposals city council should have considered. Though there will be a parkade built at Riverside Park, it will be smaller than first proposed. In a surprise move, Kamloops city council opted this week to proceed with a two-level, 350-stall parkade where the Lorne Street parking lot now sits, at an estimated cost of $7.5 million. The plan includes building 220 new stalls at a cost of $33,000 per stall and raising downtown parking-meter rates by 25 cents. The city still intends to borrow money to complete the project, which would then trigger what is called an alternative-approval process, in which residents opposed would have 30 days to gather 10 per cent of the electorate's signatures, thus forcing a referendum on the issue. The KVS said it will have to discuss whether it will want to lead a counter-petition. Council voted 6-2 on Tuesday, May 3, to go with the amended proposal, with Mayor Peter Milobar and councillors Nancy Bepple, John De Cicco, Tina Lange, Jim Harker and Pat Wallace in favour and councillors Denis Walsh and Marg Spina opposed. Milobar said the revised plan addresses the majority of the concerns from the public, especially when it comes to protecting the view of the park, while Lange called the new parkade a "great proposal" and a "good compromise. However, Walsh argued council needed more time to review the revised proposal and remained opposed because of its location. The next phase in the project is to begin the detailed design work, which is expected to be complete sometime this year. David Trawin, the city's direc- tor of development and engineering, noted the parkade is in the city's budget for 2013, but it will be up to council to decide when to proceed with construction. He said the scaled-down parkade will satisfy downtown parking needs for five years, noting the city must still look for space for additional parking in the future. Trawin said the revised parkade doesn't alter the improvement plans planned for Lorne Street. The parkade, with a top level in some parts that will be three feet below street level, will be situated on the current Lorne Street parking lot, which has 130 existing parking spots and which is situated on the south side of Riverside Park, directly in front of Heritage House and across from the under-construction Sandman Signature Hotel. The original parkade proposal called for a three-level, 493-stall parkade at a cost of $10 million that would have seen a 16-foot wall rise immediately south of the children's playground in the park, one of many areas of concern raised by the public during a lengthy public meeting last month. CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE "It always happens to someone else, right?" Wrong, a critical illness can strike anyone at any time. If this was to happen to you, how would you deal with it? � Would your life change if you were to suffer a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or life-threatening cancer? � Where would the money come from to cover additional and unexpected expenses that may be associated with medical treatment, time off work and recovery? � Would you have to withdraw from your saving account, your RRSP or borrow from your Line of Credit to pay the medical bills (more than 70% of the costs linked to cancer are not covered by the provincial health insurance plan) and every day expenses. A critical illness policy would provide you and your family with a lump-sum payment ($10,000 - $2,000,000) to look after your financial needs. Meanwhile, you can focus on what's really important - your recovery. Plus, if you don't use your coverage, you could get your money back.

M Recall campaign paid HST By Jeremy Deutsch firstname.lastname@example.org STAFF REPORTER If there is any solace for the group that was unsuccessful in recalling KamloopsNorth Thompson MLA Terry Lake, the effort didn't break the bank. According to financial statements released by Elections BC, the recall campaign led by proponent Chad Moats spent $9,550 on its failed bid. The campaign received $7,700 in individual contributions, most notably $4,400 from the FightHST group, $3,000 from Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) BC and $500 from federal NDP candidate Michael Crawford. The recall, which was in response to the introduction of the harmonized sales tax, raised another $631 through individual donations at various meetings. The recall campaign against Lake, Chad Moats spent $9,500 in the unsuccessful HST recall campaign. which ran for eight weeks between February and April, managed to get 10,087 signatures, but the number was well short of the total needed for Lake to become the first MLA in the province's history to be recalled. In Kamloops-North Thompson, registered canvassers had 60 days to obtain the signatures of at least 15,299 registered voters, 40 per cent of the 38,246 voters registered to vote in the last provincial election. The group needed to collect about 2,000 signatures a week to have been successful. A good portion of the campaign's expenses -- $2,888 -- went to media advertising and, ironically, another $889 went to paying HST. In the meantime, according to the statements, Lake spent nothing in the defence of his seat. The recall-spending limits begin with a base amount of $25,000, which is adjusted for the number of registered voters in the electoral district as of general voting day for the last election. The failure in Kamloops-North Thompson followed other failed recall bids of Liberal MLAs Ida Chong in Oak Bay, Don McRae in Comox Valley and Marc Dalton in Maple Ridge-Mission. 6OZ BACON WRAPPED FILET MIGNONS 4 STEAKS 170 G / 6 OZ.

THE MINING INDUSTRY MINING WEEK UNVEILS A RESOURCE-RICH MASTERPIECE T HERE'S A RENAISSANCE IN THE MINING INDUSTRY IN B.C. -- AND THE KAMLOOPS REGION IS THE DA VINCI. There was nearly $1 billion spent in new mine development last year, and a good portion of that in Kamloops. "What's happening here in Kamloops is tremendous," said Pierre Gratton, president and CEO of the Mining Association of B.C. The head of the association was in Kamloops this week to recognize B.C. Mining Week, which actually starts on Sunday, May 8. Though projects like New Gold's New Afton mine are driving the growth of mining around the region, Gratton said Kamloops is also leading the way when it comes to successful partnerships between First Nations, the province and the industry. He said the region has "winning conditions" for mines to be successful. These conditions include good mines supported by engaged local First Nations communities, partnerships with Thompson Rivers University and the B.C. Aboriginal Mine Training Association and revenue-sharing with bands and the province. "If we can take all of that and reproduce that in other regions of the province, we'll have a really successful mining industry," Gratton said. The Tk'emlups and Skeetchestn Indian bands signed a historic mining revenue-sharing agreement with the province. The Economic and Community Development Agreement, which was signed last August, will give the two bands 37.5 per cent of the mineraltax revenue collected by the province from the New Afton mine. It's predicted the agreement will bring the two bands $30 million in revenue during the life of the mine, which is expected to be about 12 years. Tk'emlups Chief Shane Gottfriedson said the band has worked hard to create partnerships with the industry, which he noted are starting to pay off. He said the mine-sharing agreement for New Afton will kick in when the mine is fully operational in 2012. Though Gottfriedson considers the mining industry to be important to the TIB, he cautioned the band will be closely watching a pair of potential mines in the area. The TIB has come out in opposition of a potential mine project in the Heffley Creek area because it's located on culturally sensitive Douglas Reserve land-claim area. Meantime, the TIB is working with Abacus Mining and Exploration Corp. as its Ajax mine proposal just south of Kamloops makes its way through the province's environmental process. A18 FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 www.kamloopsthisweek.com MINING WEEK A 25-year relationship with Highland Valley IGHLAND VALLEY Copper (HVC) is marking its 25th year of operation -- and what better time to announce an extension of the mine's life? In February, HVC announced the development of a mine plan prolonging the life of the mine into 2025. Six years longer than expected, the extension of the mine life involves a push back of the historic Lornex Open Pit and is dependent on the approval of an amendment to Highland Valley Copper's Mines Act permit. "We are going back and expanding that area to get at ore we can't get at with our current configuration," says Mark Freberg, Highland Valley Copper superintendent of environment and community affairs. "The mine must get H permits from the province for that work and we are working through that process now." Along with the extended mine life comes millions of dollars estimated to be injected into the local economy of Kamloops and the surrounding area. The natural resources being mined from Highland Valley provide wealth to the area, but part of that wealth is being shared with many community agencies. The mine employs more than 1,200 people -- and they never stop fundraising. "There area several initiatives at three different levels where Highland Valley Copper and its employees give back," explains Freberg. Through the Teck Community Partnership Initiative, Teck Resources and Highland Valley Copper in 2010 donated more than $270,000 to various charitable organizations in Kamloops, Logan Lake, Merritt and Ashcroft. Periodically, Highland Valley Copper gets access to this level of support and, recently, three Kamloops charitable organizations -- the Children's Art Festival, the Big Little Science Centre and the 2011 Western Canada Summer Games -- each received a donation of $25,000. Another level of support is one of the mine sites biggest fundraisers, the Thompson Nicola Cariboo United Way campaign. In 2010, employees raised approximately $282,000, with the company matching that amount, the 2010 HVC United Way contribution was $564,000. Through a series of presentation lunches offered at the mine, all employees have the opportunity to learn more about the United Way and their member agencies. The lunch-speaker series attracts everyone with its splendid array of foods, from barbecued chicken and ribs to chocolate treats for dessert. The food is provided by the company and the United Steelworkers Local 7619. "People come in and have a good lunch and watch a United Way video," Freberg says. "We have people from the United Way and member agencies come in and talk about where the money is going and then the employees sign pledge cards. "Employees either pledge a single amount or have a specific amount deducted off a set number of cheques." The third level of support is through fundraising events. In 2010 HVC continued to support Royal Inland Hospital Foundation by hosting its annual fly-fishing tournament on Trojan Pond, one of the mine's reclaimed tailing ponds, a family ice-fishing derby and an open house. Since 1990, through fishing derbies, openhouse events and the Mining for Miracles campaign in which employee contributions are matched by corporate donations, more than $580,000 has been donated toward patientcare equipment at Royal Inland Hospital. In addition to community fundraising, Highland Valley Copper will open its doors to the public with an openhouse celebrating 25 years of its operation. On Monday, Aug. 1, the public will have the opportunity to partake in the family day that showcases many aspects of mining, including a variety of tours, displays and entertainment. The day is also a fundraiser in support of the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation. HVC's family day provides its visitors with an educational experience learning more about one of the largest base metal mines in Canada.

If so, you might want to check out local Caterpillar dealer Finning. The company held an open house at its Kamloops operation recently, seeking to recruit heavy-duty mechanics. If you missed the event, no worries -- you can still apply online at the company's website, finning.ca. Founded in 1933 in Vancouver, Finning has a long history in Kamloops, with the first store opening in 1965 with just a handful of employees. Today, more than 100 employees work at the Kamloops operation. Finning sells and rents the most-advanced equipment and engines in the world to its customers -- from snow-clearing skid steers all the way up to the 400-ton haulers. "In addition to Cat equipment, it's our ability to provide product support and customer solutions that sets us apart," said Kamloops branch manager Dan Lockwood. "Our service technicians are the most knowledgeable, dedicated and well-equipped mechanics around." This service-focused business plan has seen Finning rise to become the world's largest Cat dealer, with nearly 4,000 employees working at more than 60 locations. WHOLE CREW. Finning recruiter Kerry Beaulieu said the company has plenty to offer new recruits. "When you work for us, you've got the technical support behind you to succeed and a wide variety of opportunities ahead of you. "We also place a high value on employee engagement, safety, continuous learning and career mobility." The cross-Canada recruiting drive is on primarily because mining activity is brisk not just in Kamloops, but throughout Finning's territory as commodity prices for oil, gold, coal and copper are strong. All told, the company is looking to hire 400 new team members. Most of the openings are for heavy-duty mechanics with journeyperson qualifications. Go online to finning.ca to learn more.

The agreement will give New Gold control of Richfield's flagship asset, the Blackwater Project, located about 160 kilometers southwest of Prince George. The Blackwater Project is a bulk-tonnage gold project with a property that covers 23,670 hectares. The acquisition will add about 3.8-million ounces of gold resources to New Gold's portfolio. "The acquisition of the Blackwater Project is an ideal fit, with our goal of continuing to enhance value in jurisdictions where we already have a strong presence," said New Gold executive chairman Randall Oliphant. "This is an exciting gold project that we anticipate could significantly increase our gold production base at competitive cash costs in the years ahead. "The Richfield team has done a tremendous job in advancing the project to this point, and we are excited to now move forward with it," he said. "With New Afton in British Columbia on track to begin production in mid-2012, we will be well positioned to deploy both the team and cash flow from New Afton to move the Blackwater Project through continued explorathe exploration and development expertise to continue to expand and, ultimately, develop the gold resources at Blackwater. "I am proud of the Richfield team's hard work in making this project into the success that it is today, and very excited going fortion its mine-building team from New Afton to Blackwater. Moreover, in a business in which the pedigree of a company's management team is almost as significant as the promise of its resource, New Gold's board of directors reads like a veritable who's who list of mining-industry heavyweights. Other board members alongside Oliphant include Pierre Lassonde, the former president of Newmont Mining (NEM.N) and current chairman of Franco Nevada (FNV.TO); Ian Telfer, the current chairman and former CEO of Goldcorp (G.TO); and Raymond Threlkeld, former CEO of Western Goldfields. Transaction Highlights for New Gold: � Adds a large gold asset in British Columbia, where New Gold is well advanced in bringing its New Afton Project into production. � Adds an established attributable gold-resource base of 1.8-million ounces of indicated mineral resources and two-million ounces of inferred mineral resources with significant exploration potential. � Timeline for development that matches availability of New Gold's proven mine building team. � Ability to fund development from internal cash flow. � Tax synergies with New Afton. � Minimal shareholder dilution of approximately 10 per cent. New Gold is an intermediate gold-mining company. The Mesquite Mine in the United States, the Cerro San Pedro Mine in Mexico and Peak Gold Mines in Australia are expected to produce between 380,000 and 400,000 ounces of gold in 2011. The fully funded New Afton project in Canada is scheduled to add further growth in 2012. In addition, New Gold owns 30 per cent of the world-class El Morro project in Chile.

"I am thrilled by this winwin transaction for both Richfield's shareholders and those of New Gold", said Bernier. "The Blackwater Project will be in excellent hands with New Gold, a proven mine builder and operator that has the financial capacity and ward for our shareholders to own a meaningful portion of New Gold. "This will allow us not only to participate in the continued advancement of Blackwater, but also to be part of New Gold's exciting growth portfolio."

The company is focused on high calcium and dolomitic lime, value added lime based products such as specialty hydrates and precipitated calcium carbonates, and in the aggregate and pulverized stone business. s Graymont has been in the lime business for over 50 years and is among the leaders in the industry in adding new efficient plants and equipment and operates some of the most modern facilities on the continent. Graymont is the third largest producer of lime in North America. In Canada, Graymont subsidiaries have operations from New Brunswick to British Columbia. In addition to Graymont's lime interests, Graymont Materials, located in upstate New York and the d province of Quebec, provides construction stone, sand and e gravel, asphalt products and ready mix concrete for the infrastructure and general construction needs of the area. Graymont's Pavilion Lime Plant located 35kms NW of Cache Creek on Hwy 99 has been in operation since 1974 and currently employ's 40 people at the site. The mine is situated on Ts'kw'aylaxw First Nation land on which they have a lease agreement. Graymonts Pavilion plant enjoys a strong relationship with Ts'kw'aylaxw First Nation that Graymont is proud of. Limestone is mined off of the mountain by drilling and blasting and is then loaded onto 40 ton haul trucks and hauled to a crusher where it is crushed into 2" stone. The stone is then fed into the pre-heater ( this is the cylinder shaped structure you see beside the steam stack as you drive by) and then into the kiln where it is cooked into quicklime for pulp mills, gold mines and even supplies Domtar to slake out impurities in their process.

The project will be an underground mine and concentrator which is expected to produce an annual average of 85,000 ounces of gold, and 75 million pounds of copper. During the first quarter of 2011, the New Afton underground development crews continued their advance, completing 1,580 metres of development. As development crews are now working at the base of the ore body, development ore continued to be transported to the surface stockpile which contained approximately 22,000 ore tonnes at the end of the first quarter of 2011. Highlights for the quarter included a record monthly underground advance of 571 metres for the month of March; continuation of conveyor transfer stations construction with anticipated conveyor start in Mid-2011; the pouring of over 1,000 cubic metres of concrete in reclaim and mill building; and completion of installations for buried services and overhead power poles in preparation for tie-in to 138kV power line. The company looks forward to production commencing by July 2012, as New Afton is expected to contribute significantly to New Gold's current portfolio of operating assets. The project remains fully-funded with the cash on New Gold's Balance Sheet exceeding the remaining targeted project capital costs. New Afton's recruitment needs in 2011 have an emphasis in the latter part of the year focusing on employees for the mill concentrator.

(RCMI) boasts more than 50 years of combined executive experience in rock excavation. It specializes in drilling & blasting applications such as road and highway construction, quarry and mine production, infrastructure foundations and hydro-electric development across Canada. President Peter Walker formed the company in 2002 after many years in the excavation industry, and brought along several other experienced people. The company was founded with the philosophy of providing safe, efficient and guaranteed service, always knowing project parameters before a bid and always meeting client expectations. Highland Valley Copper Celebrating 25 Years in the Community RCMI has ongoing projects in the Mining Industry that require new pit development, pit floor leveling, wall control and specialized drilling. The specialized drilling in pit is to facilitate sump development to allow active de-watering programs. Rock Construction & Mining Inc. has also been involved in the pit development needs for quarry operations across Canada. We utilize both production bench drills and pioneering machines needed for rough terrain, to meet the specific needs of the client. Our personnel are trained in the use of both bulk and packaged explosive products and all initiation systems to meet client production and cost requirements. RCMI has the professional experience to meet all safety and production parameters needed in today's competitive markets. Teck Highland Valley Copper is proud to be a part of the Kamloops region. For the past 25 years we have played a major role in the local economy and we will continue to do so for at least another decade. The mine employs over 1,200 people, with over half of them living in Kamloops. Actively supporting initiatives in the region is important to us, in 2010 Teck Highland Valley Copper donated in excess of $358,000 to local charitable organizations. We are proud to say that both the company and the employees are major contributors to the United Way, BC Children's Hospital, Royal Inland Hospital and other institutions. Our combined contributions to the United Way in 2010 totaled over $564,000. Teck Highland Valley Copper's employees recognize that these organizations provide critical services to our communities. We have been recognized by the local United Way as the "Largest Corporate" and "Largest Employee" contributions for 22 consecutive years. Teck Highland Valley Copper has an active environmental management program covering regulatory compliance, waste management, reclamation and site decommissioning. Land reclamation is carried out on areas of the property where no further activities are planned. Over 6,200 hectares of land have been disturbed by mining activity. By the end of 2010, over 2,235 hectares (35%) had been revegetated. What does this mean for the local economy? � Wages and benefits for the last year totaled $151 million. The spin-off benefit of that money goes towards local services, stores and businesses. It is estimated that for every job in mining, 1.7 other jobs are created. � If you add up the total numbers for the past 25 years, it works out to well over $1 billion dollars in wages paid into the local economy. � In addition, in 2010 the mine spent another $116 million for goods and services provided from 533 local vendors. Teck Highland Valley Copper's contributions to government services are also significant. The operation is BC Hydro's third largest customer. The mine pays about $57.7 million annually in taxes to various levels of government, including fuel, provincial, federal, hydro and property taxes. Mining sector praised for sustainability Pierre Gratton, president of the Mining Association of British Columbia (MABC), has commended B.C.'s mining sector for its steady progress in embracing responsible mining and sustainable development. "It is no longer enough to point to jobs and wealth creation and expect the public to support the mining industry," Gratton said. "For mining to succeed today, we have to embrace sustainable development." B.C.'s mining sector is in a period of renaissance. In fact, Gratton noted, B.C. is home to more new mining projects than any other jurisdiction in Canada and further expansion is underway. He said growth of this magnitude is possible only by earning the trust and confidence of British Columbians. To sustain this growth, Gratton said, the industry must continue to earn and maintain the public trust. He said efforts over the past several years show Logan Lake, BC promising results: Recent surveys conducted by the MABC in communities across the province show consistent and significant support for mining. In fact, Gratton said, the industry is considered an environmentally responsible, safe and vital part of communities in many regions. The president said several MABC members have demonstrated their commitment to sustainable development for many years through adherence to leading initiatives such as the Mining Association of Canada's Towards Sustainable Mining initiative, while others are moving in this direction. "Sustainable development means something a little different in our industry than in some others," Gratton said. "Though mines are finite, the industry's contribution to human capital is ongoing," he said. "By working closely with communities and First Nations, B.C.'s mining sector can play a major role in building stronger, more resilient communities that creates opportunities for their people." Restoration towards productive end land uses is an important aspect of the mining operation. Teck Highland Valley Copper, one of the largest copper-mining operations in the world will continue to be an intricate part of the community for years to come. www.kamloopsthisweek.com FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 A25 LOCAL NEWS Police warn users of `toxic heroin' The same batch of toxic heroin believed to have claimed two lives in Kelowna may be on the way to the Tournament Capital. That's the word from Kamloops Mounties this week as they caution local heroin users to be vigilant. "The key element here is to warn the street-level drug users," said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. "For the intravenous users here in town, they should be very cautious. There's a distinct possibility that some of this bad heroin could have come into the Kamloops area." Mounties in Kelowna are blaming a batch of "toxic heroin" for two sudden deaths in as many days earlier this week. On Monday, May 2, a 24-year-old man was found dead in a home. On Tuesday, May 3, a 21-year-old man died in his bed. Police in Kelowna said small amounts of heroin were found in both instances and the drugs have been sent off for analysis. Learned urged Kamloops drug users to take extra steps to ensure they know the origins of their drugs. Kitchen Impossible? Working in a "cave" & need out? WE HAVE THE ANSWERS!

Dubbed the Santa Claus Kidnapper by media, police say the suspect is believed to be a man in his 60s or 70s with neatly kept long white hair and a bushy white beard. On April 1, a 20-yearold Kamloops woman called police to say she was driving down Highland Road from Juniper Ridge at about 1:30 a.m. when she stopped to offer assistance to a truck parked on the shoulder with its hazard lights on.

A28 FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 www.kamloopsthisweek.com LOCAL NEWS Kamloops' home of the $3 cone! An election-day warning A complaint about road safety sparked city bylaw officers to issue warnings on election day (Monday, May 2) at the Cottonwood Avenue polling station in North Kamloops. Jon Wilson, the city's community safety and enforcement manager, said "there was a specific complaint the street was unsafe," noting parking is allowed on one side of Cottonwood, but vehicles were parked on both sides. Long lineups at the polling station meant cars were accumulating on the street, Wilson added. When the bylaw officer arrived and realized the cars likely belonged to people waiting to vote, he decided to issue warnings, rather than tickets, Wilson said. "Unfortunately, with an unsafe situation, we have to go out and create awareness," he said. Had there not been a complaint, Wilson noted, his department would have "steered clear" of the traffic pileup because it was election day.

One of Kamloops' best gymnasts will try and hang with the big boys at nationals By Marty Hastings email@example.com STAFF REPORTER Scott Nabata will face the toughest test of his young career at the Canadian Gymnastics Championships, which get underway in Prince Edward Island on May 23. "The people are a lot older, so it's a lot different," said Nabata, who's been a fixture at KATTS Gym on the North Shore since he was 2. "Last year, I was the oldest in the category and, this year, I'm the youngest. The competition is a lot harder." It's a good thing the 15-year-old Sa-Hali secondary student, who will be competing in the 16- to 18-year old junior division at nationals, has the ability and desire recquired to rise to the occasion. His technical skill is undeniable -- Nabata competed for the silvermedal winning Team B.C. at the Canada Winter Games in Halifax in February. He also won an allaround bronze medal in the tyro division (13- to 15-year olds) at last year's nationals, which were held at the Tournament Capital Centre. Evidence of Nabata's drive to succeed can be found in his speedy recovery from a broken back last summer. Doctors told him he would not be able to train for eight to 12 weeks after he fractured his T12, L1 and L2 vertebrae during a floor routine, but the determined high-flyer was back at KATTS four weeks later. If Nabata, who would like to be a dentist when he's done with gymnastics, is going to excel at the next level, he will have to overcome a fear of trying maneuvers that require him to put his body on the line. "The scariest thing on every event is dismount because you're all tired and you need to do a really big thing and stick it," he said. "It's hard to do when you're out of breath." It's not that Nabata isn't used to high-risk routines but, to win at the junior level, he will need to pull out all the stops. The dismount off the rings, for example, will see Nabata perform a doubletuck, full-twist 360 which, in laymen's terms, is two full flips with a 360-degree turn thrown into the mix. Nabata considers the floor and pommel horse his strongest events; the parallel bars his weakest, although he has been improving as of late. "At the competitions I've gone to lately, I've gotten first or second [on the parallel bars], but I feel like some of the skills are getting a little bit scarier and I need to work on them a little bit harder." Hisayoshi Takahashi, known affectionately as Mr. T at KATTS, might be ready for a break from one of his best students, Nabata, who practises five days a week, four hours a day. "He has been really important," Nabata said of his longtime gymnastics mentor, Mr. T. "He asked me before the summer last year what my goals were for this year and he's just been pushing me to reach my goals." Nabata is aiming for a top-five, all-around finish at nationals. His long-term gymnastics aspirations: "I hope to make the Olympics for 2016. That would be great. It's my dream."

Not your averagesize diamonds, though -- a pair of massive, six-foot-10 gemstones. That's what TRU WolfPack men's basketball coach Scott Clark might have found in the twin brothers Bozinovic, Blaz and Ivan. "They are big guys who run pretty well," Clark said. "They catch on quick. They need to improve their practice and playing habits, but they are diamonds in the rough." The Bozinovics were a big reason why St. Ann's finished fifth at the provincial A high school basketball championship in March. "They only played one year of junior basketball after being cut in Grade 9, but they have worked hard and went from very raw projects to vital players in our senior program," St. Ann's bench boss Robert Larson said. There were other university options for the twins, but they chose to stay at home and play for the Pack. elor of arts program. Finding a replacement for Greg Stewart, a 7-foot-2 forward who was named the Canadian Interuniversity Sports defensive player of the Pack's head coach said. "The key word here is "good." "I think a bigger man -- whether it be football, hockey or basketball -- has an advantage over someone that is smaller. "The key will be whether or not they can gain advantages in strength, skill and competitiveness." The Bozinovics' father, Ivica, played basketball in Croatia against Toni Kukoc, who went on to play in the NBA. Playing so close to home, Blaz and Ivan will be able to take advice from pops and, as they have for the past 18 years, they will be able to count on each other. "When I am doubleteamed, I always look for him," said Blaz, who averaged 25 points and 15 rebounds per game last season.

STAFF REPORTER What a treat it must be for the Kamloops Excel to start the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) men's premier season with a healthy roster after a 20092010 season filled with injury. "It seems like they're all healthy right now, so I think, in the end, we'll have one of those playoff berths and we'll challenge for the title," said Excel GM Frank Salituro, who stepped down as head coach after last season. Players who missed extended periods of time due to injury last season include Brynden Swint, Casey Cullen, Brett Nordin and Jason Burrows. "We should have made it last year, but we were decimated by injuries," Salituro said. "We've got a number of people back and it should be the strongest team that we've had yet." The Excel will be coached by committee this season, with Aaron Kidd and Jamie Spendlove, both of whom still play, and Todd Vass, a former player, joining forces to coach the squad. "Frank [Spada], Ralph [Carrier] and I thought it was time to bring the youth into the organization and give them the opportunity," Salituro said. Kamloops, which is entering its fifth year as a PCSL franchise, has never made the playoffs. The Excel came close in 2009, missing the post-season on a goal-differential tiebreaker. Four of the league's seven teams -- Kamloops, Khalsa Sporting Club, Mid Isle FC, Okanagan Challenge, Surrey United SC, Vancouver Thunderbirds and Victoria United -- qualify for the playoffs. Kamloops finished in sixth spot last season with a 4-6-6 record. Swint, Nordin, Spendlove, who's brother, Sean, is also on the squad, Kyle Bowman, Braeden Burrows, Peter Loncar, Kyle Fertile and Justin Smeaton are among the players expected to play big roles for the team this season. Kidd and Allan Connors are listed as the Excel's goalkeepers. Kamloops opens the 2011 campaign against Okanagan at Hillside Stadium on Saturday, May 14, at 3 p.m. "Our goal is to make the playoffs, as it always is, and I think we have a very good chance," Salituro said.

Pictured (left to right): Rob Robertson, Lisa Denis, Greg "Spike" Wallace Heat to boast strong lineup By Marty Hastings email@example.com STAFF REPORTER It's a crapshoot, really. What kind of team the Kamloops Heat will field for any given Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) women's reserve season is not usually known until a week or two before opening day. "It's a little bit like university," said Excel head coach Kelly Shantz, who assists TRU WolfPack women's soccer head coach Tom McManus during Pack soccer season. "The faces change from year to year, with kids graduating and moving on and you never really know how it's going to turnout." Luckily for Shantz and the rest of the Heat, this year's crop of players looks like a dandy. "We've got a great list of players," Shantz said. "I'm very excited." Expected to be the Heat's backbone this season are TRU standouts defender Blair MacKay and midfielder Maddy Reid. "They've both been consistent, strong performers ever since their youth days and will be leading this team as well," Shantz said. Bolstering Kamloops' lineup will be forward Frankee Bencher, a Kamloops product who plays for the Victoria Vikes. Kamloops is entering its fourth year in the PCSL's women's reserve division, which consists of under-21 teams. Each team is allowed to have five over-age players on its roster. The Heat have always been a force in the eight-team league (Chilliwack FC, Fraser Valley Action, Kelowna United, North Shore Girls Soccer Club Stars, TSS Academy, Vancouver FC and West Van FC), but have yet to win a championship. A top-four finish will see the Heat into the playoffs this season. Shantz is interested more in the development of his players than he is in wins, losses and championships. "As long as we're playing well, the kids are having fun and we're improving, that's our first goal," said Shantz, noting the Heat act as a development squad for the WolfPack. "If that translates into wins and a championship, great, but we are here to develop players and have a great time doing it." The Heat kick off their season on Saturday, May 7, in West Van and play away games at North Shore and Kelowna before their home opener against North Shore on May 28 at Hillside Stadium. 250-314-2325 www.rihfoundation.ca Thank you to our newest SILVER SPONSOR McDonald's� Mascots Sponsor Voted Kamloops' Best Dentist Dr. Glenn Vandepeear Hillside Drive Call 250-374-2646 We Welcome New Smiles!

"We have been very successful in Kamloops because we're very competitive," said Kamloops branch manager Charleen Holloway. For the past eight years, shelters have fundraised while competing for bragging rights. Last year, Kamloops beat Prince George, raising $48,000. This year, Kamloops is taking on Nanaimo in what is being called "land versus sea." "The money raised supports homeless ani- mals," Holloway said. The money will be put toward the costs of vaccinations, spaying and neutering, medicine and general animal care. "It costs $435 to care for an average cat and $475 to care for an average dog," Holloway said. The Kamloops SPCA will start its events on Saturday, May 7 with a barbecue and bottle drive at the shelter from noon to 2 p.m. A dinner, auction, 50/50 and games will take place the same day at the Rock'n Firkin Sports Pub and Grill, starting at 5 p.m. Tickets are $13 and available at the shelter. The first annual Balls and Bats for Dogs and Cats Slow-pitch Tournament will be held from May 13 to May 15. The shelter will host an open house on May 14 that will include a barbecue, pet photos, nail trimming, informational booths and children's activities, all by donation. Holloway said this year's goal is to raise more than last year -- and, of course, beat Nanaimo.

A38 FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 www.kamloopsthisweek.com LOCAL NEWS A sign of council approval It will soon be easier to find the Kamloops Surgical Centre, much to the chagrin of some residents living near the building. City council has approved a variance permit for the centre to erect a six-metre tall freestanding sign on the property. Representatives for the surgical centre, which is located on Columbia Street in Sahali, said patients, especially those from outside Kamloops, have had trouble finding the centre. The centre said it was careful to choose a sign it feels is pleasing to the eye. The surgical centre handles between 38 and 68 surgeries during an average week. Residents living in a nearby apartment argued the sign will block their view and impact the office building's quality. Be a part of this great Publication! If you want to be in... The City of Kamloops Parks & Recreation Guide SPR ING 2011 CITY HALL He can hear that train a-idling One can only imagine how hard it can be to have a train idling right outside your house as you raise a young family. Sean Tantrum is a Dallas resident who knows exactly how it feels -- and he's hoping a future meeting between the city and CP Rail will help solve the problem. Since last fall, CP Rail has used the area near Tantrum's home as a staging area for its trains. The resident said since the staging area moved, idling trains have been a noise problem for him, his wife and their young baby. This week, Tantrum asked city council if there was any way the city could help him out. Though the city has no legislative power over the rail company, a sympathetic council has agreed to ask representatives from CP to come to a meeting at a later date to discuss the issue.

She would watch artisans take "a pile of mud" and make something beautiful out of it. Emary found herself drawn to the many possibilities the potter's wheel offered her -- but her first several attempts just didn't go the way she wanted them to when she worked up the courage to try to create the magic herself. Undaunted, Emary kept studying -- and discovered a side to pottery that doesn't require a wheel. Now, she works in slabs, rolling the clay into flat sheets and using them to create her own wonders. It's as painstaking a process as using the wheel because, to create her art she needs templates, each of which she designs herself. That means visualizing the end result in her mind and translating it into those guides, something she calls "a very individual thing." In her home studio, she's made works that range from the artistic to the functional, from sculptures to bowls and tea pots. Her personal signature is the textures she uses, creating works "that invite you to feel them." Emary will join fellow members of the Thompson Valley Potters Guild for its spring sale on Saturday, May 7, at Desert Gardens Community Centre, 540 Seymour St. The sale runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and will feature a range of creations. Emary is a relatively recent addition to the guild, joining it two years ago. When it was created in 1969, there were just seven potters; now, membership tops 40, some of whom have belonged for decades. A returning feature at the sale is the charity bowl, something guild members created a few years ago to give back to Tara Emary finds her creative muse in her home studio, where she creates works of art through slab pottery. She'll be taking part in the Thompson Valley Potters Guild spring sale on Saturday, May 7 at the Desert Gardens Community Centre. Dave Eagles/KTW the community. Members create and sell soup bowls -- a purchase also gets you a bowl of soup and a bun -- and the money raised goes to a charity. This year, the guild is supporting the Marjorie Willougby Snowden Memorial Hospice. For Emary, the sale is not only a chance to make some money but to put her art on display to the public. Each piece she'll have at her booth will be unique, not only because of the design but because she doesn't use glaz- es but, rather, handpaints each one. "For me, I can't compete with people who thrown on a wheel," she said. "So what I have is my designs and the fact each one is different. "If I had to sacrifice that for the money, I couldn't do it."

Food, fun -- and working to end cancer It's a lofty goal, ending women's cancer, and it requires equally determined support. Seven Kamloops women are stepping up to the challenge -- and will be stepping out on Aug. 13 and Aug. 14 as they try to do a 60-kilometre walk in the Weekend to End Women's Cancer in Vancouver. Terri Haggerty, Vessy Mochikas, Margaret Huff, Bev Moody, Tanya Alkerton, Connie Lacey and Teresa Foreman need to raise $2,000 each to take part -- all the money raised goes to the cause -- and they've been busy with a lot of fundraisers in recent months. The next one is June 11, when the team hosts Breastfest, an evening of food and entertainment at Flavours of India, 550 West Columbia St. Supporting the team are Perry Tucker, Ben Neilson, Emily Jones, the Kamloops Glee Club, Juanita McIntyre, Chris Hum, Taryn Iadarola, Michelle Botel -- and there will likely be more before the first course is served. Tickets are $40 if bought before May 15 and increase to $50 after then. The event starts with Emily Jones performing at 4:30 p.m., with a different entertainer every half hour to 45 minutes. Dinner is served from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and, during the meal, Tucker performs. The evening tentatively raps up with the glee club, McIntyre and Botel.

Previous to today, my only experience with coconut as an ingredient involved slitting open a fresh bag and measuring b shreds of fancy sweetened nutmeat into my cookies, pies and m cakes. And, if I needed coconut milk for a Thai Red Curry or tropical R smoothie? the wonderful stuff. No hammering, gouging, shredding, soaking or squeezing involved. Last week, though, as some of you will remember from the column that preceded this one, saw me in the kitchen with a whole coconut, shredding it for jam. See GRATING B7 on vitamin D By Laura Hsu email@example.com SPECIAL TO KTW ITAMIN D HAS BEEN GETTING A lot of attention in the press in recent years -- and you've likely been told at some time that you should be getting a regular dose of this "sunshine vitamin." Why is it so important? Vitamin D is a compound bodies are capable of making if exposed to adequate sunlight. It promotes the uptake of calcium in the gut and plays an important role in building and strengthening bones. Adequate vitamin D and calcium intake is essential for preventing osteoporosis, which can reduce bonefracture risk, especially in older adults. Research suggests vitamin D may also play a role in fighting infections, normalizing blood pressure and preventing autoimmune diseases. As with other vitamins, a certain level is needed to get the maximal benefits. For adults between 19 and 70, the established recommended dietary allowance (RDA) level is 600 IU per day. The RDA for adults over the age of 70 is 800 IU per day. The RDA for women who are pregnant or lactating is 600 IU per day. The level increases with age because kidneys become less able to convert vitamin D to its active form, so more is needed to get the same results. Certain segments of the population are at higher risk for vitamin D deficiency and should take extra care to make sure that they are getting enough. These include: Older adults: The skin's ability to make vitamin D becomes less effective with age; People with limited sun exposure: Those who live in northern climates, spend most of the day indoors or consistently wear sunblock when outdoors; People with darker skin: The higher amounts of pigment in skin reduces skin's ability to produce vitamin D People with certain medical conditions: Conditions that impair fat absorption (e.g. Crohn's, cystic fibrosis) will affect vitamin D uptake as it is a fatsoluble vitamin Where is vitamin D found? Good sources include fatty fish such as salmon, tuna, mackerel and sardines, milk, and fortified soy or rice beverage. In addition, vitamin D is widely available in supplement form, either alone or as part of a multivitamin. Laura Hsu is a dietetic intern in Kamloops. V www.kamloopsthisweek.com FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 B7 CUISINE Grating coconut sounds so easy -- but isn't From B6 Some of you even tried making the recipe, which likely means I have a few people who'd like to give me a piece of their mind. Except, that jam -- whatever it may have cost in terms of time, frustration and grated knuckles -- is very, very good. A stiffer, Caribbean version of that decadent filling that usually tops a German Chocolate Cake. The jam goes well with scones or, as intended, a filling for the Trinidadian "Torments of Love" tarts from Ann Vanderhoof's travel/food memoir, The Spice Necklace -- the book that inspired the column. To get to that jam, however, took nothing less than a hammer, five knives (to find the right two for scoring and levering), a carrot peeler (in an attempt to carve away the layer of shell that remains, before switching to a turning knife) and a box grater. As it happens, though, once a half-inch shard of coconut has been grated down to one-quarter-inch nub, there's nothing left to hold onto. Not even if you try to pincer it between a strawberry huller or pair of tongs. And the author wrote of box graters, not a much sharper microplaner, although the ultra-fine shavings would, I think, make for an elegantly textured jam. I suspect grating coconut is like a lot of other skills. Practice not only makes perfect, it makes efficient -- though efficiency with this item is not now something I aim towards. Especially since, notably, Vanderhoof is oft snickered at by her island friends for stocking powdered coconut milk on her sailboat, Receta, instead of spending her mornings with the world's most frustrating food. I understand her willingness to be mocked. Sparing knuckles is sometimes more important than saving face. Factory shreds and canned coconut milk is decidedly the stuff for me. In the meantime, though, that jam I already made wants to fill a batch of tarts. Darcie Hossack is a food writer and author of Mennonites Don't Dance (Thistledown Press).

For the past four days, we had been in Colorado, exploring Rocky Mountain National Park, where 768 kilometres (359 miles) of hiking trails scroll its 265,770 heavenly acres. A quarter of these routes snake above the tree line and 60 peaks are higher than 3,700 metres (12,000 feet) -- this being one of them. Step by step, I plodded through the alpine tundra, a region where only the hearty survive. A marmot told me I was too close by giving me his highpitched bark. A pika scurried off to seek refuge in his nearby craggy homestead. Flanking my route were 200 species of scruffy ground-huggers that will bloom briefly in summer. As I slowly ascended, my head felt light, my breathing became short and I wondered if I would be able to acclimatize. It had worked on the other hikes. On our first day, we had started off with an easy stroll through Moraine Park, once the melting basin of the Thompson Glacier, now a grassy plain, backed by a forested ridge and craggy peaks. The trail crosses a river and passes lodgings that share a piece of the past. In the 1920s, this area was home to three hotels, a post office and, eventually, a nine-hole golf course. Over recent years, it's been restored back to its natural state. I Now, instead of luring golfers, it was a hot spot where the elk like to roam. The second day, we checked out the various options at Bear Lake. This hub is a bustling place, especially in summer and on weekends, when the Denver crowd arrives. A free shuttle service transported us from our trailer site to the trailhead, where a wheelchair-accessible loop provides a taste of wilderness to those who aren't able to hike. "We've broken in our boots now," Brent said. "Let's head for higher ground." A paved pathway that led to lily-pad Nymph Lake still felt like Grand Central and was not much more than a walk in the park, but the crowd and air thinned out as we took the skyward stairway 200 vertical feet higher to the trout-filled treasure of Dream Lake. For the grand finale, we hoofed upward to Emerald, a crystalclear jewel that shimmers in the shadow of Hallet Peak -- and, in the silence we sat, mesmerized by the beauty. Although a tad stiff by our third day, we had our hiking legs and the craving to see more. The Rockies seem to have that effect on visitors, whether they come to check out the abundant wildlife or those omnipresent granite giants. There are lots of options for every ability level, from slow saunters to the challenging 4,346 metres (14,259 feet) that makes up Longs Peak. Mills Lake and The Loch Fall are two hikes that fit somewhere in the middle and, after being dropped off by the shuttle at Glacier Gorge, we hiked them both. Thirteen kilometres in length, 1,200 feet in elevation and an entire day of spectacular sights: Cascading falls, forested moraines, Ice Age glaciers -- and all backed by those impressive peaks. An easier way to view these beauties is to drive the Trail Ridge Road, a main artery that bridges the east to the west side of the park and links up the five campgrounds and visitors centers. Within an hour, this scenic route rises from the lush riparian grasslands to the alpine tundra where you're given sweeping panoramas. At this road's apex is the rooftop of the Rockies -- and The Tundra Communities Trail. "It's called the land of fierce extreme for good reason," Brent said as the blustery wind cut through our jackets and the temperature plummetted to a frigid low. Although this paved trek is only a kilometre-long roundtrip, with every step, I felt a little dizzier and weaker. But, in this case, the pain was worth the gain. Even before cresting this summit, we had a 360-degree vista of the forever unfolding peaks. Many are topped with snow, some are pocketed with lakes and all rise majestical- Brent and Jane Cassie stop in front of the cascading falls on their way to the top of the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. ly from lush meadows and valleys below. "This is absolutely breathtaking," I gaspws, implying both literally and figuratively. "Without a doubt, it's another Rocky Mountain high."

Reg. #3015-5 www.kamloopsthisweek.com FRIDAY, May 6, 2011 B9 MOTHER'S DAY � MAY 5-9 Garden Centre A lifetime of being mom For a woman, starting a family at the age of 20 entails becoming a mother and becoming a woman at pretty much the same time. It isn't easy to take on these two roles simultaneously, so early in life. Learning to be more independent while looking after a newborn baby is a heavy responsibility. Fortunately, many young mothers can count on their own mothers to give them invaluable advice and support. Regardless of the children's age, motherhood at 30 means, for many, juggling motherhood and career. Time is compartmentalized, with little of it to spare for leisure and rest. Every moment has to be skillfully managed and distributed fairly between children, spouse, friends and family. At the same time, there is a sweet joy in seeing the future take shape. By 40, mothers are more experienced, stronger and flexible. They have already lived nearly half their lives! Understanding, patience and humour are key words for these moms who are no longer trying to be perfect. With their maturity, mothers in their 40s know their own depths and how to draw on their inner strength. At 50, moms blossom. Their children have grown into teenagers or young adults, and the empty nest means being pushed to address their own needs as women, not just as mothers. It is a time to discover the excitement of stimulating challenges. At 60, still overflowing with love to give, mom makes the most of her new life by choosing how much of herself to give her adult children, this time as a grandmother. It's a new role, freer and more permissive, one in which she will reap all the rewards of a lifetime of hard parenting work.

The first artisans of humanity and its history, they make up the most important social group on this planet, with their large number as well as with their fundamental role as educator and caregiver. Unfortunately, all these mothers will not receive their well-deserved birthday wishes, a breakfast in bed or flowers on this day of celebration. Many will have to continue their fight for the survival of their children as well as their own. Many are neglected and ignored within their own family and within their society despite their essential role and importance. All these reasons brought about the creation of the World Movement of Mothers (WMM) whose mission is to emphasize women's importance for the future of humanity, support and assist women in their fight for equal rights and for universal recognition and respect. It is of the utmost importance that women, throughout the world, have access to resources to provide education to their children as well as the needed resources to grow and blossom within their respective family and society. Many smaller organizations throughout the world continue to fight, on a smaller scale. It is important to recognize their work and thank them for their effort and the protection they provide to these women as they carry and cradle humanity. On this Mother's Day, let us celebrate our mothers but remember that they also need our gratitude, respect and support throughout the year. 4 sittings to choose from: 4-5:30pm / 5:30-7pm / 7-8:30pm / 8:30-10pm Sunday, May 8 ~ Please RSVP Mother's Day SMORGARSBORD BACK BY POPULAR REQUEST 17 ITEMS Kids 6 & under � FREE only 7-12 � 1/2 PRICE $ SHANGHAI MANDARIN RESTAURANT 14A-1315 SUMMIT DRIVE � 250-828-0571 19 95 /person Photo Credit to Macco Photo "It's Happening" Mother's Day Specials Real Food, Real Value.

Whether she lives next door or across the country, send mom a beautiful fresh flower arrangement to celebrate her special day! Your local florist can design and deliver the perfect gift to Mom this year. A vase or basket of mom's favourite flowers will be a welcome surprise. Lilies, roses and orchids are especially popular for Mother's Day. With spring in full swing, tulips and daisies are abundant as well. Ask your local florist for creative suggestions based on your mom's favourite floral variety and/or colours. You may also find that they have some unique/specialty vases or containers available to showcase mom's blooms. A green or blooming plant can be delivered with your Mother's Day message. A decorative bow can be added for that special touch. Fresh-cut flowers can also be added to a planted gift for an extra splash of colour. A floral centerpiece can be created just for mom to highlight her table of homecooked meals, for which she is so famous. Centerpieces can even be designed with a candle as an extra keepsake for Mother's Day. Fruit/gourmet baskets offer Mom some delicious treats in a decorative basket. Consider sending Mom some special teas, coffees, cookies, chocolates or any gourmet treats. Ask your local florist about the many delicious options available for gift baskets. For an extra-special touch, add some balloons or a plush animal to mom's flowers, plant or gift basket. It will give mom's gift a real "wow" effect. A simple "Happy Mother's Day" or detailed sentiment can be included with your floral gift on a message card. Some florists also have full size greeting cards available. Consider sending your grandmother a floral gift on Mother's Day as well. Mother's Day is a perfect day to celebrate any woman in your life that you honour and respect -- your wife, your grandmother, your stepmother, your mother-in-law and your daughter-in-law.

These are great ways to show mom she is important, but wouldn't it be nice to put a bit more thought into the occasion? After all, this is the woman who brought you into the world or who raised you as best she could. Mother's Day is the perfect occasion to give your mother the gift of your time. She is sure to take more notice of your thoughtfulness than of the money you spend on her. By the time we become adults, most of us don't really think to share with her our thanks and tender words, so why not find a way to offer her that this year? A thoughtfully chosen gift certificate, such as for a massage or a day at the spa, is one way to remind her that her efforts are appreciated. If you give her a card, choose it carefully and add a short personal message. Taking the time to write about the love or gratitude you feel for her turns the card into a precious memento.

If you have been meaning to shore up the railing on your stairs or screw in your smoke alarm after your last round with burnt toast, get at it. The Home Safety Council (HSC) reports about 55 people die and some 58,000 people are injured every day in their homes because of mostly avoidable accidents. With the Hands-on Home campaign, the non-profit HSC reminds us to go through our homes with an eagle's eye for possible dangers. Here are a few items you might want to add to your to-do list. � To prevent falls: Install handrails on both sides of the stairs; ensure that stairways and landings are properly lit; and use a stepladder instead of a chair or stool to reach for things up high. � To prevent poisoning: Keep cleaning products in their original containers and avoid mixing them together; use medications only as advised by your doctor or pharmacist; install carbon monoxide detectors; and keep the poison-control line handy (1-800-222-1222). � To prevent fires and burns: Make sure your smoke alarms are working; keep space heaters at least three feet away from walls and furniture; extinguish candles when you leave the room; and, if you smoke, do so outside and fill your ashtray with water before disposing of the butts. � To prevent accidents with water: Install a high fence around your pool or spa; keep your hot water heater set to 120 F or lower; empty wading pools and even buckets of water after use and store them upside down. The Home Security Council has many other resources for families, including tips for childproofing the home and disaster preparedness strategies.

Creating a functional workshop, built with the right materials, could be the single renovation project that guarantees the success of all your future projects. The ideal workshop should include a workbench with a good work surface, storage space for tools, an efficient ventilation system, functional lighting, as well as a large garbage can and a comfortable seat that can be adjusted in height. Will you be working with wood? Doing handicrafts, renovations, or car repairs? Define what your needs will be so you can plan adequate dimensions for the work surface as well as sufficient storage (shelves, drawers, tool racks) and accessories (vices, buffer stops, run- ning water). Whether it's built in the garage, basement, or garden shed, or even if you transform an unused bedroom, the workshop should be large enough to work in comfort and large enough to leave unfinished projects without cluttering up the rest of the home. The ideal top for a workbench could easily be made from a solid exterior door, which offers tough surface resistance to hammer strokes. Or, you could build a counter using sheets of plywood glued together and covered with a solid wood panel. When space is restricted, wheels can be added to the workbench so that it can be moved around more easily. If you do this, make sure there's a locking mechanism on the wheels so that the it doesn't move around when in use.

Screen me in! One of my best childhood memories is of visiting my grandmother. She had a wonderful summer kitchen, where it was always cool and breezy. It was comfy and peaceful, protected from direct sunshine and bad weather. The screen door creaked and closed with a bang, its tightly coiled spring a sound of pure country. When I close my eyes, I can still hear that door, and the murmur of adults chatting on the porch, making the most of summer evenings. Summer kitchens seem a thing of the past, but home renovators can recreate the unique feel of an oldfashioned veranda with a screened-in porch. In addition to enhancing the value of your home, partially enclosing a porch will prolong its life manyfold. An enclosed porch gives the impression of being outside while being protected from rain, wind, and mosquitoes. It's a patio transformed into an extra room in the home, with the additional advantage of comfort and dryness. In other words, it captures summer at its best! This can be a very affordable project, as screens are a lot less expensive than the large windows required for three- and fourseason porches. Do-it-yourselfers can build their own porches, with some guidance from a building materials or renovators store. For a few dollars, you can even obtain plans for this type of construction. With just a little bit of effort, and a springed screen door, summer living at your home can be just like it was in the good old days! 834 Laval Crescent | Kamloops, BC V2C 5P3 250.372.8141 The greatest little Garden Centre that you have ever seen!

If it's well organized, it will be an indispensable place for relaxing and entertaining friends. If you're feeling creative and are good with your hands, you can create your own deck. Be organized: establish a budget and make a list of the different steps involved in the project, including the purchase of building materials and plants and flowers. You might consider hiring a landscape architect or a landscape gardener to do the design or planting work for you. These specialists will know how to design and bring to life your dream deck! Think about how you want to use the space. For relaxation, choose a banquette with big cushions, attractive chairs, a hammock, or a hanging seat. A small table will add functionality to this space. If you're more interested in creating a dining area, choose a versatile table and opt for long benches rather than chairs. You'll maximize the available space and be able to entertain more people. For a deck with a country look, choose traditional materials, such as wrought iron, wood, or bamboo, combined with accessories in soft, natural colours. For a more contemporary decor, choose furnishings in teak or composite and be daring with colours, opting for dark tones such as black or brown accompanied by brightly coloured accessories. For the finishing touch, place hanging plants, potted plants, or even climbing plants in strategic positions. You could even grow fresh herbs as well as flowers in colours that harmonize with your decor.

It's titled I Owe You. In the song, a man is looking through his wallet and comes across a number of long-standing "I owe yous" to his mother, which he names, one by one. Borrowing that idea, it might be good for many of us, who have NARAYAN MITRA been guilty of presumption, You Gotta Have to unfold some FAITH our own "I owe yous" that might have turned yellow with age. If we would only consider the priceless value of the one woman who made our life possible -- our mother -- it would help us avoid many a trips to the psychiatrists and the rehab centres. And, if there's one attitude families are guilty of more than any other when it comes to mothers, it's presumption -- taking them for granted, being nearly blind on occasion to the load moms carry. Think about her example, her support, her counsel, her humour, her humility, her hospitality, her insight, her patience and her sacrifices.

U.S. president Abraham Lincoln was right when he said: "He is not poor who had a godly mother." Yes, indebted, but not poor. The spiritual value of women's work has been given little credence in Western Christianity. As in ancient Greece, men are still often seen as more capable of sustained philosophical and theological reflection, while women are tied to earth in the messy physical work of childbearing and raising. But, mothering is not only about folding hands and closing eyes. As the daily life of a mother is more physical and immediate, so is her experience of God. Crankiness can murture quick forgiveness; exhaustion calls for humility and community. And, best of all, children themselves provide unlimited chances to live in gratitude and joy. Practising conventional disciplines, when she is able, prepares her to simply practise the presence of God in seasons of life filled with disorder. Many great men of past, including biblical characters like Moses, Samuel and Timothy, have been richly blessed by what they learned at their mothers' knees. In Proverbs 31, the Bible devotes a section entirely in praise of women, probably because men see to their own plaudits sufficiently well. The person described in this passage is at once a woman, a wife, and a working mother. Her personal worth, practical works, prudent words, and her profound wealth set her apart from the rest of the society. Some principles that apply from the said scripture passage are: He is most manly who treats a woman with profound respect. She is most womanly who inspires and enforces it. The Word of God castigates a battle of the sexes as sheer nonsense. Though acknowledging the reality of working mothers, the passage idealizes the woman's commitment to raising a family. Most of all, it declares that motherly virtues are chiefly rooted in the fear of God (Prov.31:30). All other virtues of womanhood rest on this worth that God places. Susanna Wesley, mother of Charles and John Wesley, used one hour daily in prayer, praying for her 19 children. Besides that, she took each child separately for a full hour each week to discuss spiritual matters with him or her. No wonder the two Wesley brothers were used of God to bring blessing to all of England and much of America. The yearnings of a godly mother's heart left rich legacies indeed. Her motto: Subdue self-will in a child and work together with God to save his soul, teach a child to pray as soon as he or she can speak, never allow a rebellious, sinful act to go unnoticed, but punish no fault which is freely confessed. This would prevent lying. In our times, long hours, undefined pay, and guilt-ridden retirement years seem to be the givens for what is known as "the second oldest profession" that is motherhood. But, about 85 years ago, Anne Jarvis campaigned for the observance of Mother's Day. Now it is the day when most phone calls are made and most flowers and gifts sold and bought for mothers. On a day dedicated to her, it is easy to idealize a wonder mother in such a way as to make real mothers stagger under the weight of such expectations. The monastics of yore developed many spiritual disciplines which valued regularity and solitude. Words like rule and order describe them. Family life, while no less holy than monastic life, makes consistent order impossible. In reality, the wild rhythm of parenting cannot provide the only model for spiritual discipline. Though the spirituality of a mother with children might look little like that of a monk, the same grace can be sought by her by drawing on the same grace of God available to anyone seeking it.

She leaves her two daughters Lynia MacDonald (nee Danielson) (Rob) and Georgina Lestander (nee Danielson) (Larry), grandchildren Jared Boyd, Erin Cooper (Chris), Noeleane Boyd, Candice Suecroft (Brent), Chelsea Lestander and two great grandchildren Ryder and Finn Cooper. Gramma to Corry Selishia & Astraea. Thank you to her good friend Shirley Woytula and wonderful long time friend Marie Bird for being there especially during her final days. Kay was born in Spalding Saskatchewan and moved to McBride BC at the age of 15. In McBride she attended the CGIT which stood for either the cutest or the craziest girls in town. She made teen friends there who she stayed in touch with throughout the years. Kay worked at Tranquille School for several years as a hairdresser to the residents in the late 70's and early 80's. Kay was a gypsy at heart living in several places from Chase to Pritchard to Logan Lake. She always felt Kamloops was home and enjoyed living close to her family here. She loved to garden, create unique crafts and recently enjoyed the wonder of facebook. Kay had a generous giving heart and her door was always open to anyone in need. She loved animals and was most content sitting in her comfy chair with "squeak" purring on her lap. Kay met her friend Shirley in her last year of life, their companionship was like the sister neither one of them had had. They enjoyed lunches, laughs and finding treasures at the local thrift stores. Kay always had an ear to listen and arms to hug, she will be dearly missed by all who knew her. Thank you to Ralph and M.J. Finch and the rest of the Finch family for being there for Mom whenever needed. Thank you also to Dr. Hollman and the staff at the Kamloops Hospice House. There will be an informal gathering for family and friends at Cottonwood Manor 730 Cottonwood (North Shore) in the Dogwood room on Sunday May 8 2011 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the Kamloops Hospice House.

His parents died when he was 5 years old and he was raised by older sister Katy in Blue Sky, Alberta. Adam set out at the age of 15 armed with hard work and determination. He worked various jobs until he found his niche building homes. Adam and Lee married in 1956, moved around the prairies and lower mainland building homes and having kids. Adam fell in love with the Kamloops area and made it home for his family in 1970. Adam earned a well deserved reputation for making quality homes. He took pride in all aspects of home building, from the footings to the cabinets and finishing work. He 'retired' to Scotch Creek, BC, which really meant his shop moved. A day of working and fishing followed by a glass of wine on the deck at 4 was how life was lived, except for those darn jet skis. The Shuswap is where he felt comfortable. It was his home; it was part of who he was. Travelling meant being away from the lake, and if it was snowing on the Coq, even more reason to go home. Adam loved yellow labs, children, Dubya, Fox news, Young & Restless, real country music, crusin' in the Grew. He suffered a stroke January 6th and fought the fight until April 27th. Adam was predeceased by 5 sisters and 2 brothers, and survived by his brother Joe & Mary. Also mourning is his family he was so proud of and who meant so much to him. His wife and best friend Lee, daughter Debra & John, grandsons Jared, Joel and Delaney, son Clayton & Cathy, granddaughters Rene and Andrea, son Kelly & Debi, grandchildren Hailey and Spencer, son Randy & Kelley, granddaughter Gabrielle. Service will be held at the Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church in Chase, May7th at 1:00PM, and reception at Creek side Centre. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Arthritis Society (www.arthritis.ca) are appreciated.

There she met and married Fred Langton in 2002. In her later years she went back to school and received her Care Aide Certification where she found her greatest passion working with the seniors at Cariboo Manor. She was very proud of her job there. Dolores was a very kind caring person and was loved by all who knew her. She never turned her back on anyone in need, always being there to help in anyway she could. She was strong willed and very talented. She loved finding a new craft to make and then sharing it with everyone. Mostly she was a mother and a friend to all that knew her, she will be deeply missed.
