From Cover the Night to trick-or-treat By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

As the Kony 2012 campaign’s day of international action draws nearer, it’s looking likely the Tournament Capital will be left uncovered. Kicked off by a YouTube video that went viral in early March, the campaign focuses on Ugandan warlord Joseph Kony, whose Lord’s Resistance Army abducts and enslaves children for use as soldiers. The initiative to “make Kony famous” — and increase pressure on world governments to have him arrested — is set to culminate on Friday, April 20, when thousands of people plaster posters of Kony throughout major cities. According by Facebook, more than

3,000 people are planning up to attend two Cover the Night rallies planned for Kamloops. In reality, one of the gatherings has shifted focus due to a lack of municipal support, while the other is being called off altogether. Though nearly 1,500 people are listed as “attending” her Cover the Night rally, high school student Sophia de Zeeuw said the number of people who still seem committed to the campaign has dwindled. “I put a message on Facebook two weeks ago and asked people to click ‘like’ on it if they were going to be attending and I only got about 11 people,” she said. “I decided a rally wasn’t really worth it, so people can just organize their own groups.” Thompson Rivers University student

Emma Whanstall, whose event is still proceeding, also expects to see fewer people than originally signed up. Right now, 20 people are committed to her event and she hopes to get at least 100 involved by Friday. Both point to a wealth of bad press and criticism Kony 2012 has received since the rallies were planned as the main reason for waning interest. Invisible Children, the charity behind the campaign, has been accused of oversimplifying the Kony story. Not long after the video’s launch, one of the charity’s cofounders, Jason Russell, was arrested in San Diego for vandalizing cars in the nude after suffering a breakdown. XSee PLIGHT A16

The house fire that gutted part of a North Kamloops duplex last week and left a family dog dead was set on purpose — and police have made an arrest of a teenage boy. Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said Mounties are recommending charges of break and enter, arson and breach of conditions against the teen, whose age Ward refused to disclose. Ward would not offer any further details about the suspect. However, the fact investigators are recommending a breach charge indicates the teen has been involved with police in the past. Ward also refused to comment on whether investigators believe the arson could be linked to dozens of suspicious fires in Kamloops in the last 12 months, other than to say police “feel he [the suspect] is a risk to the public.” “The Kamloops RCMP have been very concerned about arson problems,” Ward said. “At this point, we’re going to look at this individual.”

Ward refused to say if the alleged arson was a random act or if the suspect had any links to the home. He also would not elaborate on the circumstances of the incident or how the suspect is believed to have gained entry to the home. Kamloops Fire Rescue crews were called to the duplex, in the 600-block of Clearwater Avenue, at about 2:30 p.m. on April 12. Firefighters extinguished the blaze, which was confined to a room in the home’s basement. The suite was occupied by a single father and his two children. No people were home at the time, but the family’s dog, Buddy, died as a result of the fire. According to Ward, the incident should serve as a reminder to homeowners to take steps to prevent arson attacks. “We’ve actually implored people to take a look around the residence, take a look around the yard,” he said, noting combustible materials should be removed. Ward said the suspect was slated to appear in Kamloops provincial court yesterday (April 18).

Master Your Money

The New Wealth Secret A true story of an unlikely underdog who mastered the money game Have you ever felt an uncomfortable silence when someone starts getting too personal about money? Why is that? I find it odd that people share their most intimate details with friends and strangers on Facebook, yet completely clam up when the subject of money comes up. Like it or not, money is what makes our society click. Canadians enjoy one of the highest qualities of life in the world, and money is a big part of the reason why.

about money. But Rob did approach him - and Frank told him Money is ALL about leverage. Frank then went on and shared with Rob one of the greatest lessons he had ever learned. When your money makes more money for you than your job does... then you are well on your way to financial freedom. If you make $20 an hour at your job - true financial independence begins when the money you invest is making

My name is Darren Weeks and I am one of the fortunate few who LOVES to talk about money. More specifically, I love to talk about the fundamentals that help people create and protect their wealth. Real independence comes when you learn how to make money work for you. Money knowledge needs to be at your side in all situations... like a trusted friend who does nice things for you on a regular basis.

When you understand the rules of the game...the money will find you! My company, the Fast Track Group, has been ranked among Canada’s Fastest Growing Companies for two straight years now. Last year, we finished 40th on PROFIT Magazine’s list. In 10 years, I have taken it from 5 employees in one tiny office, to over 100 employees and 12 offices. More than 350,000 Canadians have now attended Fast Track events. All our success has enabled us to support people that inspire us. The Fast Track Group is the title sponsor of Canada’s Luge team and we support them to the tune of over $1 million. On top of providing FREE financial education to all Canadians, my company is able to offer better returns and tax savings to our investors thanks to our partnerships with multinational Companies. We are not some “fly-by-night corporation.” My greatest pride in all of this? Seeing my clients, students and peers succeeding and thriving in the current economy. Rob Chaulk came to one of my events in the Spring of 2008. He grew up in a family with a poor dad, and a rich dad (his uncle). So Rob had been given a good start on his money education. But it wasn’t enough. Rob was a hard worker that knew his job wasn’t going to make life any easier. He held careers in the energy and industrial sector. He dabbled in some businesses along the way in the restaurant and towing business. When Rob read Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki, he took it seriously and within 30 days he bought his first rental property. He was hooked. He put together a plan for 10 properties in 10 years... his key to retirement. Right around this same time he had lunch with his rich dad (his multi-millionaire uncle). Not exactly an easy guy to talk to, his uncle “Frank” was self-made and not easy to approach

Rob Met Darren Rob then came to a Get Rich in Canada event, hosted by myself... and was able to create a $4 million dollar property portfolio in just 24 months.

Vicci Vieira is preparing to take a Kamloops care home to court after she was barred last week from seeing her ailing father. Dave Eagles/KTW

91-year-old in middle of custody struggle By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Maple Ridge woman is preparing to take a Kamloops care home to court after she was barred last week from seeing her ailing father. Vicci Vieira’s 91-year-old dad, Jose, is a resident at Ridgeview Lodge in Brocklehurst. She has been ordered to stay away from the facility since April 14. Vieira said the ordeal leading to the ban began on March 26, when she received a call from from staff at the home saying her father was refusing food and water and “wanted to die.” She said she rushed to Kamloops

from the Lower Mainland and began to make arrangements for her dad’s passing. “I believed he was dying,” she said, describing Jose as “dead to the world” upon her arrival. “I called a priest to do his last rites.” After the priest left, Vieira said, her father woke up. “He started begging me for food and water,” she said. “I said, ‘Do you want to get better?’ He did. ‘Do you want to go to the hospital?’ Yes.” The next day, Vieira said, she convinced Ridgeview staff to let her take Jose to Royal Inland Hospital. According to Vieira, a doctor at RIH told her Jose had been sedated.

She claims staff at Ridgeview had assured her the opposite. They returned to Ridgeview. But, Vieira said, she wasn’t happy with the level of care he was receiving. On April 6, according to Vieira, she took Jose to Maple Ridge, where he saw different doctors. There, she said, Jose went through withdrawals associated with the sedative he had apparently been on in Kamloops. She said he was in excellent shape once he got over the withdrawals with the help of a different medication. Vieira said she and her dad stayed in Maple Ridge for more than a week, until a doctor there was

advised by a doctor in Kamloops that Vieira did not have the legal authority to remove Jose. According to Vieira, she has power of attorney for her father. But, she admitted, it’s been disputed by other family members. Vieira said Maple Ridge RCMP accused her of kidnapping her father. But, she said, police don’t appear to be following up on the allegation. Jose was shipped back to Kamloops on April 14. Vieira said she hasn’t been allowed to see him since. Repeated attempts by KTW to contact Ridgeview management were unsuccessful. Vieira said she was initially told her dad was being held under the

Adult Guardianship Act dealing with instances of elder abuse. “They forbid me to see my dad. I don’t know for how long,” she said. “I’m sitting here thinking my father’s going back to square one.” Vieira, who has spent the week in Kamloops, said she’s been in touch with various provincial agencies looking at her options to get back in to visit her father. As a last result, she said, she’ll launch a civil court action against Ridgeview to have the ban overturned.

Houses of the holy to . . . houses? By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s currently zoned for a house of worship, but a vacant lot next to Aberdeen elementary may soon simply hold houses. Kamloops city council has agreed to send to public hearing a rezoning application of the 2171 Van Horne Dr. property to permit a 64-unit strata development on the site. The development would include 11 two-storey duplexes, six three-storey triplexes and a 24-unit, four-storey apartment building. While the land is zoned for church use, city staff said the rezoning request is in line with Kamloops’ Official Community Plan. David Trawin, the city’s director of development and engineering, said staff are also proposing a restrictive covenant for the property that would limit the number of units to 64. Normally, 72 units would be allowed

on the 2.23-hectare lot. Homeowners near the development site have presented some opposition to the project, according to notes from a community meeting in January. Among the concerns are increased traffic, slope-stability issues and worries about the kind of residents the development would attract to a neighbourhood of single-family homes. “Many residents expressed frustration that they purchased their homes with the expectation the subject property would remain as a church,” the staff report reads. It also notes “concerns about properties being rented out, bringing crime and turning Aberdeen into another ‘Sahali.’” Trawin said staff don’t see the development having much effect on traffic and have asked council to put another covenant on the property requiring the developer to take preventive measures, including impermeable liners and subsurface under-drain in the northwest part of the property.

While City of Kamloops asks that smokers stay 10 metres from the doors to the Tournament Capital Centre, provincial law dictates a buffer of at least three metres outside public buildings. Kamloops Coun. Ken Christian wants his peers to press Victoria to increase that zone to 7.5 metres provincewide — and ban smoking in a number of areas. Dave Eagles/KTW

250.578.5474 www.SunPeaksResort.com

Bigger smoking ban proposed Christian wants council to lobby province By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

If Coun. Ken Christian has his way, lighting up on a patio or while watching a soccer game will soon be a thing of the past. Christian is asking city council to push for a provincewide ban on smoking in parks and playgrounds, beaches, during public events and on patios. He also wants to see the three-metre buffer zone around doors and windows expanded so smokers must be 7.5 metres from access points before taking a puff.

“The science is very clear that sidestream smoke affects people at a distance of 7.5 metres or less and that obviously affects the health of non-smokers,” said Christian, who is also Interior Health’s outgoing regional director of health protection. “I think it’s really a question of making smoke-free environments available to people that want to maintain clear air.” While some municipalities have bans on smoking in certain public places— and Kamloops council has had calls to do the same in recent months —

Christian isn’t suggesting a bylaw specifically for the city. He said having different bylaws for each city is confusing and it makes more sense for the province to impose a single standard for all, as it did last month when it banned children and teenagers from using tanning beds. “The track has been set now and it’s time for the province to step up and take that on,” he said. Christian said the plan isn’t so much to keep people from smoking on the streets as it is to create more smokefree zones.

“The intent is to make smoke-free patios so there isn’t sidestream smoke going into the faces of people who are enjoying a meal or a drink,” he said, noting a ban in parks and playgrounds would set a better example for children. “When you’ve got little kids out playing soccer and, on the side of the field, you’ve got a bunch of parents smoking, I don’t think it’s really good rolemodelling.” Council will decide whether to take on the cause at its next regular meeting on Tuesday, April 24.

No Rainbow in Ajax future Company says it has no immediate plans to mine other deposits near Aberdeen site By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A spokesman for the Ajax mine said there are no plans at this time to begin mining other known mineral deposits in the site south of Aberdeen. Maps of the project taken from a presentation for potential investors, created by Abacus Mining and Exploration Corp., show two other mineral sites — labelled as DM and Rainbow — within Ajax’s land base. That has some Ajax opponents concerned the open-pit copper and gold mine under review isn’t the last planned for the area. According to a feasibility study published earlier this year, Abacus conducted geophysical surveys and drilling at the two marked sites between 2002 and 2007. In the case of the Rainbow site, “visible gold has been observed on instance in quartz-carbonate veinlets,” the report notes. Ajax community relations co-ordinator Norm Thompson told KTW the sites aren’t in the picture right now — and there is no work underway to see them mined. “We’re only concentrating on the Ajax project at the moment, so all the investment is concentrated on developing that Ajax project,” he said. “If you look at any other deposits, you need to put in applications and get permits through the Mining Act and

we haven’t got anything in the works for anything else at this point.” According to the feasibility report, the other sites “do not currently meet reasonable prospects for economic extraction,” but could become more viable in the future through “further exploration or more favourable economics.” Thompson said if proponents wanted to expand into other portions of the site, they would need to go through the same review process the Ajax mine is undergoing and would

Katie has us shedding those wonderful happy tears

T

HERE ARE HAPPY tears and sad tears. Some of both were shed this week as we welcomed Katie to our family. She’s a nine-month-old border collie crossed with something unidentified — but which likely has led to her incredible long, curly hair. It’s been a long time since we’ve added a dog to our animal collection. The last time was when we adopted Austin, our amazing collie-shepherd cross who died in January. Hence the tears. Even now, three months after that horrible day with those amazing people at Valleyview Veterinary Clinic, I still find myself crying when I think about Austin. So many people responded to the column — in essence, a doggie obituary — about his life and sudden death. I probably got a dozen copies of The Rainbow Bridge, a poem about where our pets go when they die. I got letters and emails from other people who had lost a pet, photos of those dearly departed, stories about how important they were in each person’s life. They all helped ease the sadness. Shared grief, even with strangers, reminds us we’re not really alone in our experiences. When Max, our first border collie, died, my husband said that was it. No more dogs. He had adopted Max as a puppy and the bond those two had was huge. Just a few weeks after his death, we were at Thompson Rivers University’s animal-health technology building, scoping out the dogs up for adoption. Austin came home with us and, quickly, that bond happened again.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL This time, the grieving needed more time, not because we loved Austin any more than Max, but because he had a completely different personality and the suddenness of his illness and death were overwhelming. But, back to TRU we went, originally to meet Jack, a beautiful shepherd we had seen on the website. He was friendly and gorgeous, but just too big and strong. I didn’t see how I could handle him and was glad to find out later someone else had adopted him. We were going to leave when Alan asked about Katie, one we had looked at on the website, but dismissed because we just weren’t up to dealing with a young dog. Katie had a different idea and charmed her way into our hearts almost at first glance. Animals have such a wonderful way of doing that, don’t they? Her first night, she peed and pooped in the house, but looked properly sorry when I pointed to it and issued a firm, “No!” It had to be stressful for her, leaving the students who have been caring for her as they learn their craft and being plunked down in a new environment

with strange people. It took a bit of time for her to be comfortable with the boys, something we were warned about. Katie’s not comfortable around men immediately but, getting down to her level and taking their time to win her over, she and the boys are now fast friends. The cats aren’t too happy with us, but Katie’s been giving them a wide berth. I’m thinking she’ll win them over, too. She’s made Austin’s washed and aired-out big comfy bed her own — that’s when the happy tears started her first night. My husband said she looked like she was smiling as she snuggled in. The bond has started to happen again. It’s going to be an interesting time. Her breed is high-energy, can be demanding, but is also so smart. Within hours, with no prompting from us at all, when Katie was introduced to someone, she was putting up her paw to shake. Definitely a smart dog. My dear friend, Bernadette, called me the day after we brought Katie home, just to hear all the details. Her family is a dog family, too, and she also lost one of them at about the same time Austin left us. She said I sounded happier than I have for a while when I talked about Katie. That makes sense, I guess. I’m always happy when I talk about my family — and Katie’s part of it now. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

The federal government hopes that grossing out the 16.7 per cent of Canadians who still smoke will convince them to quit. New rules are in place requiring health-warning messages to cover 75 per cent of the covers of all cigarette and cigarillo packages, both front and back, by this June. The hope is that people will give up their habit if they see photos of other smokers dying of cancer or pictures of cancerous body parts. Quitting rates have slowed, although smoking numbers are at an all-time low, and the government is forced to do something. But, will ugly packaging make the difference? There are some who will argue diehard smokers who know the risks — and, seriously, who doesn’t? — will still ignore the graphic messages, while others argue for blank packaging. Repackaging is probably good on principle, but is not likely to make much tangible difference, because smoking is just one of those things people do even though they know better. But, it’s the intangible difference that could be most important. Experts note that successfully quitting smoking is as much about the individual’s mental preparedness to kick the habit as it is about the tools or method used to butt out. Diehard, longtime smokers might already know the risks, but anything that can add a little extra push and help bring them to a state of readiness to quit is worth the effort, particularly when the cost to the taxpayer is negligible. Such efforts could include Kamloops Coun. Ken Christian’s bid to have the province increase laws on where people can and cannot smoke, including an expansion of the three-metre buffer zones around public buildings. “I think it’s really a question of making smoke-free environments available to people that want to maintain clear air,” Christian said. Ultimately, the more people who can be encouraged and assisted to give up smoking the better, considering the health impacts for the individual, and the resulting health costs for the taxpayer.

Even Down Under, our Kamloops Blazers are hot Editor: I’m an Aussie and I want to share with the people of Kamloops my enjoyment of the Game 6 win by the Blazers I thought you might find it interesting that Monday night’s (April 16) game was listened to by people on the other side of the world. I will tell a small bit about how this came about. In 1995, I met two girls from Kamloops (Penny Bunz and Lisa Leroux) while travelling through Europe. Penny was later to become my wife and now lives with me in Australia with our two-year-old daughter, Lola. In 1999, I lived and worked in

Kamloops for just under two years and have been back to Canada and Kamloops twice since then. In fact, I am a former employee of Kamloops This Week, where I worked in the mail room and enjoyed every one’s company during this time. The Blazers introduced me to ice hockey and, from the very first game I attended, I knew I had found a new love. I have been an avid hockey fan ever since and now play hockey back here in Melbourne. I am in my fifth year of competing in a state that has only two rinks. Through this time, I have followed the Blazers and often have had memora-

bilia mailed to me in Australia. I now manage in a warehouse and we have Blazer games on Radio NL and Edmonton Oilers games (my other love) streamed from the Internet through our factory. So, all of that brings me to the point of this letter! I’m just so happy for everyone involved with the Blazers and, no matter what happened in last night’s (April 18) Game 7 in Portland, I couldn’t be more proud of the team. Even on the other side of the world, we are chanting, “Let’s go, Blazers! Let’s go!” Stuart Cowden Melbourne, Australia

Premier Clark and her cohorts lack ‘intestinal fortitude’ Editor: Re: The April 12 letter in Kamloops This Week from Hillary Rockvam (‘Let MLAs staffers cut back as others must do’): The letter writer is so right in her view. The only problem that

seems apparent is that Premier Christy Clark and her cohorts don’t have (to be politically correct) the intestinal fortitude to take such action. Instead of leading by example, they would rather sock it to us in whatever

way they can. There is no consideration for the average citizen, to say nothing of those struggling to get by in whatever way they can. Their only consideration is the reflection they see when looking in the mirror.

Dare we hope for any changes?

Council rejects request for third-party Ajax review Councillors Cavers and Lange the only to support the idea By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A request to send another letter on the proposed Ajax mine to B.C.’s Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) pitted councillors who oppose the project against those who say they are still waiting for more information. The debate was kicked off by a letter from resident Dianne Kerr, who asked the city to get the EAO to fund a third-party critique of Ajax’s socio-economic review of the project that would measure the economic benefits of the mine, including its

effect on Aberdeen-area property values. City environmental services manager Jen Fretz has already sent a letter with some specific economic concerns to the EAO, but Coun. Donovan Cavers proposed council send a follow-up, asking for a “very robust� analysis done by an independent consultant. “It’s arguable the socio-economic aspects of the mine are the most subjective part of this process,� said Cavers, who opposes the project. Coun. Tina Lange, who is also against the mine, agreed. “What I’m hearing

from a lot of people in town is concern about how people are going to perceive Canada’s Tournament Capital if there’s an open-pit mine in the city,� she said “I think we need to put in a letter that this is a concern for our community and we want some answers back.� Other councillors questioned whether it made sense to send out another letter on the mine, when previous letters from council — including 11 pages of questions that went out last summer — have so far gone unanswered. “We’re starting to get letters stacked up like planes at O’Hare

Airport. I think if you’re going to keep an open mind, you ought to wait and get answers to the questions you’ve already asked,� said Coun. Ken Christian. “I have a problem with people who are already opposed to [Ajax] asking for expensive studies that aren’t going to change their minds.� Council is set to meet with representatives from the EAO next week and Coun. Pat Wallace preferred to wait to see what it has to say before sending more letters. “Six of us have publicly stated we’re undecided, we’re wait-

Dog owners get week reprieve Kamloops council is giving dog owners with three pets one week of amnesty as it re-examines its fees. While city bylaws allow two dogs per residence, pet owners with an extra dog can apply for a variance to keep the extra pooch for a $350 fee. However, Mayor Peter Milobar told council some people who have applied to keep a third dog can’t afford the amount because of limited incomes. “These people are coming forward because they’ve been flagged in our system for having three dog licences, not because they have had any complaints made against them,” he said. Council agreed to suspend enforcement of the two-dog bylaw until it sees a report on changing the fee structure, which will most likely arrive at its April 24 meeting.

CITY HALL surrounding the Owl Road landfill. Council agreed to send a letter about the privately operated dump after resident Christina Mader brought to city hall a bag of garbage she had collected near the landfill during a weekend hike. “I have seven more of these in the trunk of my car,” she said, adding she thinks the trash is blowing off the dump. Coun. Nancy Bepple said she has heard complaints about the landfill in the past and thinks it’s time for the province to take a closer look. “It’s great that people pick up garbage and make the whole community better but, at the end of the day, we do have certain regulations that everybody has to meet,” she said.

Will Victoria give a hoot about Owl dump? City will fund extra RCMP costs Kamloops council is asking the provincial government to look into community concerns

RCMP pay raises that took communities across the prov-

ince by surprise are now expected to cost Kamloops an extra $25,000 this year. Council agreed to fund the extra wages from its policing reserve and also voted to sign on to a new 20-year RCMP contract meant to give B.C. communities more control over the costs of policing. Coun. Donovan Cavers argued for hold-

ing off on the contract for a week and consulting with residents about whether they wanted a local police force instead. “I think that the RCMP are doing a wonderful job. For me, I think the issue is there hasn’t been any community discussion,” he said. “It’s a 20 year contract and, based on that, I think a week more is warranted. It’s a very

large decision for the community.” However, other councillors noted the city has the option to opt-out of the contract with two years’ notice at any time, and any discussions on creating a local police force would be too rushed since the RCMP contract needed to be signed or turned down by the end of the month.

School district wants vandals to pay up

RAM TOUGH ON ORD ROAD These Rocky Mountain bighorn sheep along Ord Road use their curled horns as weapons in a fight for dominance or mating rights. Each year, the time comes for the male sheep to prove to all the other males who is boss. The male bighorns’ double-layered skull serves as a shock absorber when they bang their heads together.

By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

The Kamloops-Thompson school district will seek court-ordered compensation for damage caused by vandals at a number of district buildings during an overnight crime spree last month. “I don’t know how much we’ll be able to get, but we will be seeking repayment through the courts,” school district assistant superintendent Karl deBruijn told KTW. In the early-morning hours of March 22, vandals damaged a number of buildings in Brocklehurst — including Kay Bingham elementary and Brock middle school. Kay Bingham was the hardest hit, with more than 40 windows smashed and an estimated price tag topping $20,000. DeBruijn said the damage has been repaired and the district has since increased its presence at night in and around certain schools. School district officials are still debating the installation of additional surveillance cameras. “We certainly have stepped up our security patrols,” deBruijn said. “But, the board hasn’t made any decision on increasing surveillance at this time.” Kamloops Mounties have arrested a number of youth suspects in relation to the vandalism spree, which also saw damage caused to the Kamloops Boys and Girls Club building near Kay Bingham and Brocklehurst Arena.

DON’T WAIT UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO YOU! CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE The Problem: Advances in medical technology mean we are living longer than ever, but not necessarily healthier; it simply means if something happens to us, we are kept alive much longer than would have been expected just 25 years ago! These advances are also changing the role of insurance.We all want to have a retirement and be able to enjoy that retirement as long as possible. However, there hasn’t been a product available to us that would protect our retirement nest egg completely – until now. What’s wrong with existing products? • Life Insurance – Pays beneficiaries only when we die. Life Insurance wasn’t designed to pay you if you live. • Health Insurance, although imperative, presents considerable gaps. In fact, fully 50% of all bankruptcies in 2000 were due to critical health problems! • Disability Insurance – Covers only 60% of income, a challenging proposition for survival for anyone, especially now. The Solution: Critical Illness Insurance – Simply put, this is a tax-free, lump-sum payout upon diagnosis of a covered illness.

NEVER HAD A CAR LOAN? NO CO-SIGNER?

Caza verdict in early May The fate of a notorious Kamloops pedophile arrested as part of an international crackdown on child pornography is now in the hands of a judge. David Caza’s trial ended in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on Tuesday, April 16. He is facing a lengthy list of charges, including allegations he possessed and distributed child pornography, as well as inviting a minor to sexual touching and luring a child via the Internet. Caza, 48, was arrested following a raid at his downtown Kamloops apartment in January 2010. Police said the search yielded 3,500 videos and 50,000 pictures, most of them verified to be depictions of children involved in sexual acts. In closing arguments this week, Crown prosecutor Bernie Caffaro said the lengths to which Caza went to maintain his alleged collection of child porn show his determination as a predator. “This need to categorize and organize and rationalize this collection is absolutely inherent in the effort,” he said. “It’s physical evidence and it’s also circumstantial evidence connecting Mr. Caza to that child pornography.” The physical evidence includes photos and videos — some of which were viewed at trial — as

said, noting one such video found on Caza’s computer shows a young boy being ordered around by someone with the username “Joyce” typing orders that appear on the screen. “We have no way of knowing if this is an actual recording of something the user of this computer did, or something done anywhere else in the world and redistributed.” Gustafson said Caza’s computer was routinely made available to guests who visited his apartment, meaning any number of people could have downloaded the child pornography files. The Crown alleges Caza’s main source of child pornography — and the place he distributed it — was a peer-to-peer file-sharing website called GigaTribe, where he went by the username “Paper123boy.” Kamloops Mounties were tipped off to Caza’s activities on the site by a Toronto detective who had gained access to another user’s account. That user, a man in Tennessee operating under the handle “Devthedude2008,” had been arrested by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Agents seized his computer equipment and uncovered his passwords, which were then provided to Canadian authorities. The Toronto detective, posing as

CALL DAWNA and drive a new car away TODAY!

Devthedude2008, began communicating with Caza’s Paper123boy account. Caza was convicted in 2001 of sexually assaulting three teenaged boys, and again in 2005 for possession of child pornography. Caza most recent trial began on Feb. 14. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Robert Powers is expected to return with his verdict in early May.

well as computers, hard drives and other digital equipment seized by police. The circumstantial evidence against Caza comes from witness statements — including a former roommate who said he saw the convicted sex offender engage in online webcam chat sessions during which he typed orders to what appeared to be children involved in sex acts, resulting in the charges of Internet luring and invitation to sexual touching. However, according to defence lawyer John Gustafson, that testimony shouldn’t carry much weight. In his closing submissions, Gustafson noted a number of files found by police on Caza’s computer appeared to be “screenshot” videos — captures depicting the entire frame of a computer’s monitor. The former roommate, an admitted drug user with mental-health issues, testified he saw Caza engaged in the chats on a living-room computer in the downtown apartment the men shared. Gustafson argued there’s a chance the roommate was actually witnessing Caza watch one of the screenshot videos. “That [video] could have literally been recorded 10 years before it ended up on Mr. Caza’s computer,” Gustafson

Plight of child soldier still the focus XFrom A1

“I think that all the propaganda causes people to back out or change their opinions,” de Zeeuw said. “I think it’s too bad that all this stuff has come out and distracted from the cause at hand . . . Even if you’re not thinking about Kony, I think we really need to focus on the child soldiers behind Kony and find a way to get help for them.” Whanstall said the Kony 2012 backlash cause her to question the campaign as well. “But, I never really wanted to get involved with the organization. It was more the awareness and the movement in

general,” she said. “It never really affected the plans. I always still wanted to go ahead with it.” For Whanstall, a bigger problem was encountered with the reality city bylaws could see participants fined $100 for hanging up posters — the central activity of Cover the Night. “We’re turning it into a trick-or-treat kind of thing,” she said. “Basically, we’re going to get everybody to go around to people’s houses and hand out posters and goo door-to-door and explain what the movement is to the community.” Whanstall is also encouraging participants to collect canned items for the

Kamloops Food Bank. A poster and T-shirt-making event at the university is also planned for today (April 19), though the time and location hadn’t been set as of KTW press deadline. While her rally won’t be going ahead, de Zeeuw is planning to put up posters at her school with some other students. “We talked about it at school and there are a lot of people that have decided not to do it any more, but there are still quite a few kids who are wanting to — maybe not so much focus on Kony — but wanting to bring attention to child soldiers,” she said. “There are quite a few of us who still want to do that.”

Suspensions meted out in schoolyard brawl By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The case is closed on a bloody schoolyard fight at a Kamloops high school last month that made headlines across B.C. when a student posted a video of the brawl to YouTube. “We’ve pretty much completed everything to do with it,” KamloopsThompson school district assistant superintendent Karl deBruijn

Free Soup Bowl

told KTW. “The students who were in the fight were suspended and some of the others involved were given one-day suspensions.” DeBruijn said school-district policy is generally to refrain from disclosing the lengths of suspensions, but noted the combatants were dealt terms between three and five days. The fight took place near Westsyde second-

One of the students watching the brawl captured video on a cellphone camera and posted it to YouTube. It was removed from the site a short time later, but not before CFJC-TV7 pulled a

The Scotiabank MS Walk, which takes place in Kamloops on Sunday, May 6, is the largest national fundraising program for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. The annual fundraiser takes place in more than 160 communities across Canada. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family-oriented event that combines fundraising with fun and community spirit. The Scotiabank MS Walk is unique in the world of spring fundraisers because there is always a wheelchair-accessible route â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an important consideration especially for those with multiple sclerosis. The May 6 Kamloops Scotiabank MS Walk will start and end at Interior Savings Centre. Walkers can choose to follow routes of one, two, five or 10 kilometres. All routes take walkers into Riverside Park, while the five- and 10-kilometre routes continue along the South Thompson River through Pioneer Park, with a turnaround at the Kamloops Yacht Club. Two rest stops are available for the two longer routes. Back at the finish area, walkers can enjoy snacks, lunch and refreshments, music and familyfriendly activities. Wheelchairs, scooters or strollers are also welcome. More information on multiple sclerosis can be found online at mssociety.ca/kamloops or by calling 250.314.0773.

incidents or occupational diseases. While Canada has some of the best safety regulations in the world, an estimated 1,000 workers across the country die each year as a result of workplace accidents or disease. “Occupation health and safety is a core principle of the labour movement,” noted Mogens Jorgensen, a Kamloops and District Labour Council executive member.

“Fewer people are dying on the job, yet improvements in workplace health and safety could further reduce deaths and injuries,” he said. “Losing 1,000 Canadians a year to workplace accidents and occupational disease every year is still remarkably high.” In 2011, 142 workers in B.C. lost their lives to workplace injury and illness. “Employers and unions have a joint responsibility to make our workplaces as safe as possible,” Jorgensen said. During the Day of Mourning ceremony, a widow, whose husband died while he was working on a commercial construction site, will share her experiences. An injured youth worker will also contribute to the event, which will feature speakers from several work sectors in the province and conclude with a candlelight vigil. St. Andrew’s on the Square is located at 159 Seymour St., at the corner of Second Avenue and Seymour Street in downtown Kamloops.

Drive on a bad road? Nominate it as worst in B.C. Last year, Ospika Boulevard South in Prince George was voted the province’s worst road in the first B.C. Automobile Association Worst Roads Campaign. Since then, that road has been repaved. Submissions are now being accepted for the second annual campaign. If you travel on what you think is the worst road in B.C., BCAA wants to hear about it. Until April 23, drivers can vote for a road in their community or on their commute they feel is most in need of repair or redesign. Through the campaign, BCAA hopes to help voice concerns about congestion, potholes, road signs, traffic lights or pedestrian and cycling safety. The survey is open to

any B.C. resident. Nominations can be made online at bcaa. com/worstroads. “As a motorist, cyclist or pedestrian, roads that are deteriorating, inadequately maintained or poorly designed affect your pocketbook, stress level and personal safety,” said Ken Cousin, BCAA’s associate vicepresident of road assist. “By voting, you can draw some attention to rough, unsafe or inefficient roads in your community.” After voting closes, BCAA will share results with municipalities and the provincial Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure. Throughout the campaign, drivers can check the website to see where their road ranks and which roads are close to taking the title of B.C.’s

Worst Road in 2012. Once final results are tallied, a list of the Top 20 “worst roads” in B.C. will be published. “We recognize a great deal of road work is being done throughout the province,” Cousin said. “The intent of this campaign is not to criticize the state of B.C.’s roads generally, but to help British Columbians bring attention to those roads that may have been overlooked, and to help municipalities and the province in their plans for future road improvements.” In 2011, Falkland’s Westside Road finished eighth on the provincial list of “worst roads,” the highest rank of roads near Kamloops. In the Tournament Capital, no roads cracked the Top 20 worst list.

Social anxiety can be more than just shyness

S

OCIAL ANXIETY â&#x20AC;&#x201D; ISNâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;T THAT A FANCY WORD FOR SHYNESS? Yes, it is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and no, it is not. One psychiatrist tried to dumb down the distinction by saying: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Social anxiety is shyness on steroids.â&#x20AC;? That was a description we can all understand. The textbooks say social anxiety is a condition in which people avoid situations where they feel they may be embarrassed or judged. Imagine the life of a teen; it feels like every situation is judged â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and how far away can embarrassment be? Imagine starting a new job or being assigned a new task where your first efforts are so clumsy and horrible everyone at work laughs and teases you. The thing is, everyone taking on this challenge would likely fare the same way and, yet, all we are aware of is our own seeming incompetence. Social anxiety comes in two basic models: General, where every potential or actual social interaction produces worry or fear, and specific, where there is a specific type of social situation that makes you uncomfortable, like a snooty banquet or being the centre of attention by having to make a speech. People who have this condition â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and about 14 per cent of the population does â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will often admit they know their fear of humiliation is out of proportion

and not based on anything too rational, yet it is there and it is a powerful force to be overcome. Social anxiety is another one of those conditions family employers and friends believe you should be able to just â&#x20AC;&#x153;get overâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;tough outâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; easier said than done because, like most mental conditions, it is not a rational state. Comedian Jerry Seinfeld, when commenting on the fact that public speaking is the No. 1 fear in the population, with fear of death being second, observed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;That means at the average funeral, people would rather be in the casket than delivering the eulogy.â&#x20AC;? That is a better way of saying social anxiety is not a rational response. The key to coping with any form of anxiety is to understand and accept the condition and make baby steps toward learning to control it, rather than have it control you. There are a number of websites and places to go for information, but no one or no material can do the difficult work for you. Overcoming the impact of social anxiety takes a calm, slow, methodical approach â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we all have a different pace.

Remember your condition, be it social anxiety or any other condition, does not define who you are. You are not â&#x20AC;&#x153;Joe the socially anxious guyâ&#x20AC;? you are just Joe, and you are not alone. Former NFL great Ricky Williams was branded as strange and aloof because he did things like wear his football helmet for television interviews. It worked for him â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he managed to get through the interviews. A large number of sports heroes and celebrities admitted to social anxiety: Sir Laurence Olivier, Kim Basinger, Donny Osmond, Barbra Streisand and even Johnny Carson â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and yet they managed to find a method that worked for them to overcome the symptoms and succeed in their very public paths. In fact, one of CMHAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best and most valuable employees also admits to some social anxiety. Thank you for asking us about social anxiety and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be shy to ask about other conditions that affect your mental health and well-being by sending an email to Kamloops@cmha.bc.ca because we always love to hear from you.

Mortgage Matters

The Falklands — and all that

THE ANNUAL MORTGAGE CHECK-UP

I

NTERNATIONAL HUMAN-RIGHTS campaigner and occasional actor Sean Penn, whose well-deserved Nobel Peace Prize continues to be delayed for mysterious reasons, was the first famous foreigner to lend his support to the cause. “The world today is not going to tolerate any ludicrous and archaic commitment to colonialist ideology,” he told Cristina Kirchner, the president of Argentina. He was speaking, of course, of the Falkland Islands. This was music to the ears of Kirchner, who has marked the 30th anniversary of the Argentine invasion and British recapture of the GWYNNE DYER islands with a highprofile nationalist camWorld paign to “recover” the WATCH Falklands (or rather Las Malvinas, as Argentines call them). Penn then went home to California, but it wasn’t long before Fidel Castro weighed in, too. Unfortunately, Castro hadn’t read the script. Kirchner’s chief talking point was an accusation that Britain was “militarizing” the South Atlantic by sending an “ultra-modern destroyer” to patrol the waters around the islands. (It replaces an obsolete, leaky destroyer, we must suppose.) Castro unhelpfully mocked the British, claiming “the English only have one little boat left. All the English can do is send over a destroyer. They can’t even send an aircraft carrier.” One could make a meal of this silly quarrel — “The Falklands thing was a fight between two bald men over a comb,” as Argentine poet and essayist Jorge Luis Borges once said — but it wouldn’t be a nourishing meal. A more useful approach would be to consider why it is so fundamentally silly. It’s not that the history of the rival claims is silly (although it is: First French settlers in 1764, then British in 1765, then the French hand their share over to the Spanish in 1767, followed by half a dozen more changes of ownership or control until the islands finally fall under permanent British rule in 1833). Nor is it that the islands are now worth considerably more than a comb (though they are, with seabed oil and rich fisheries surrounding them). It’s just that you are no longer allowed to shift control of territories from one country to another by force. That was the way the world was run for thousands of years but, after the Second World War the nations of the world changed the rule and, in effect, froze all the borders where they were at that moment. They did that not because it was just, but because most wars were over territory — and wars had become too big and destructive to fight any more.

Argentina can claim the brief presence of Argentine colonists in the island at one point before 1833 gives it an eternal right to the islands, and Britain can insist the wishes of the present, English-speaking residents, who want to remain British, must be respected, but neither is really relevant. The Falklands will remain British because we now define any attempt to change borders by force as aggression. This is the point at which the frantic protests about British “colonialism” usually erupt. They come from Argentina, where the European settlers dispossessed the aboriginal inhabitants. They come from Penn, whose house sits on land that was part of Mexico until the United States conquered it in 1846. They come from everybody who wants to draw a line under history just after the situation that favours their interests came to pass. But, the line was actually drawn in 1945 and it has proved remarkably robust. When new African countries got their independence, they got it within the existing borders, even though those were originally drawn by the imperial powers with little heed to ethnic realities. When the old Soviet Union fell apart, all 15 successor states accepted the administrative divisions of that empire as their new national borders. And, whenever somebody who hadn’t got the message tried to change their borders by force, pleading historical justice, ethnic similarity or geographical tidiness, they were firmly rebuffed by almost everybody else. Indonesia seized and annexed East Timor in 1975, but eventually had to give it its freedom. Saddam Hussein’s Iraq invaded and annexed Kuwait in 1990, but was driven out by an international army after only a few months. And, Argentina invaded the Falklands in 1982. It was driven out by a British force, not an international one, but the United Kingdom would never have fought such a difficult war over islands then seen as almost valueless if it had not had international law on its side. Argentina’s action was privately seen as inexcusable by almost every other government, even if its Latin American neighbours did not say so in public. The generals who ordered the invasion were ignorant men who didn’t understand the world had changed — and they lost power in Argentina as a result of the war. More importantly, the law was upheld. That is why Alsace-Lorraine, after changing hands a dozen times in its history, will remain French. California, similarly, will remain American however much the Mexicans dislike it. As for Kashmir and the West Bank — that’s a subject for another day.

As life changes, a regular once-over helps keep finances in shape For many Canadians, a mortgage is a necessary, once-every-five-year-chore where the bank tells you what to do. Fears about rates, costs and changes make this as enjoyable as paying taxes. However, the current low interest rate environment makes it a good time for homeowners to give their mortgage a second look and for you to decide what’s best for your mortgage. Life changes often dictate different mortgage strategies: are you starting or growing a family, starting a business, experiencing loss or interruption of income, planning home renovations, purchasing investment property or facing other major expenditures? A mortgage review can assess if your current mortgage’s interest rate, payments and options will help reach your goals. Some common reasons to revisit your mortgage: Paying down your mortgage faster: If you receive extra cash like an inheritance, tax refund or a work bonus, think about putting it toward your mortgage. For example, paying an extra $3,000 once every year toward the principal on a $250,000 mortgage can result in interest savings of $42,442 over the life of the mortgage, assuming a 25-year amortization and a fixed rate of 4.19%. Lowering monthly payments: Renegotiating for a lower interest rate or higher amortization can protect your finances from unforeseen factors like reduced income, and allow you to save up a rainy day fund. Debt consolidation: Transferring high-cost consumer debt like a credit card balance to a lower interest rate by consolidating it into your mortgage can help you boost your cash flow or pay down your debt faster. High credit card usage is a sign you are starting to flounder financially. Securing a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): A HELOC can help you access lower-cost funds for investing, such as topping up your RRSP or TFSA contribution for the year. It can also help you pay for home improvement projects. Improving credit: A mortgage professional can coach you on how to improve your credit score, which can help you work toward cheaper borrowing costs and better mortgage options. In some cases, a mortgage checkup may suggest refinancing or switching to a different lender will save you money. However, its good to be prepared as most mortgages require the borrower to pay a penalty if they pay off their mortgage in full before the maturity date. A mortgage professional can provide advice on what penalties you may incur and if refinancing is indeed your best option. In the end, a yearly mortgage checkup could reveal that the best course of action is no change at all… there is satisfaction in knowing that as well!

COLIN W. DAY

JUSTIN TREVOR DYCK

WILLIAM KENNETH DOAK

September 4th, 1941 – April 13th, 2012

(October 31, 1976 - April 11, 2012)

January 12, 1929 – April 6, 2012

It is with great sadness the family announces the passing of Colin Day, of Kamloops BC. Colin passed away peacefully with his family by his side. He is survived by his devoted, loving wife Bev of 48 years, his children Sheri-Lynn (Glen), and Craig (Sharla) and his grandsons; Gavin, Carsen and Jackson, as well as nieces, nephews and too many friends to mention. Colin is predeceased by his parents Cyril and Margaret Day and his brother Bert. Colin was born in Kamloops, and graduated from KSS in 1959. He married Bev and they raised two wonderful children he was very proud of. Colin worked in the family business, Kamloops Bottling Works for over 30 years and later had other business ventures. Over his lifetime, he was devoted to many charities and organizations, “Mr. Community Service”, active in the Rube band, president of the Wildlife Park for 25 years, active member of the Jaycees for over 20 years, TRU sports taskforce for 30 years, and volunteer president of the Kamloops Blazers for 15 years. He loved reading, movies, hockey, golf, skiing and travelling. Colin was a man of honor and integrity, who always put his family first. Anyone who knew him knew he had a wonderful way of making people laugh with his witty sense of humor and practical jokes. He was at his happiest in the backyard, entertaining by the pool. He touched many lives and will be greatly missed by his family and friends. Our sincere thanks to the wonderful nursing care that was given to him in ICU and 7-North. At Colin’s request there will be no formal service, but a celebration of his life. Please join his family on Friday April 20th at 3pm. TRU: Grand Hall. In lieu of flowers donations in memory of Colin can be made to the RIH foundation or the TRU foundation.

Justin’s favorites memories and dreams were of the years after graduating when he worked in silvaculture in the bush with his brother and his buddies at his side having worked in the Queen Charlottes, BC, Alberta, and even Montreal and Quebec and where his school years in French Immersion in Winnipeg were quite helpful. After being diagnosed with brain cancer 10 years ago he couldn’t work as physically hard but loved his part-time job in “shoes” at Winners in Kelowna. He fought his battle with cancer bravely and was our ‘hero’, living life to the fullest. There were difÀcult times but he handled his life with dignity and a smile. He loved the outdoors and camping, his computer, his herbal remedies. He loved to travel and spent wonderful family vacations in Mexico, LA and his favorite, Vancouver Island. Over the past few years Justin obtained his motorcycle license, his Àrearms license and boat license and enjoyed driving his little old boat around the beautiful Okanagan lakes last summer. The family wishes to express their thanks to Dr. Sauciuc, Justin’s oncologist and the staff at CSI (Kelowna Cancer Centre), Dr. Chamberlain, Dyck’s Pharmacy and everyone involved in his care and which without we wouldn’t have had these past 10 precious years with him.

You will always be with us Justin, never forgotten, always loved; rest in peace our dear Justin.

Rise Up Slowly . . . Rise up slowly, Angel. Do not leave me here, alone, Where the warmth of mortal essence Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Wrap me in a downy cape Of sunshine, warm with love, And kiss a tear-stained mother’s face With moonlight from above.

Rise up slowly, Angel. I cannot let you go. Just drift softly ‘midst the faces, In sorrow now bent low.

Speak to me in breezes, Whispered through the drying leaves, And caress my brow with raindrops Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Then, wait for me at sunset, Beside the lily pond, And guide me safely homeward To your world, which lies beyond.

Ease the searing anger, . . . Born in harsh, unyielding truth That Death could steal my loved one From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel, For I cannot hear the song Which calls you through the shadows Into the light beyond.

Just spread your arms to take me In reunion’s sweet embrace, And we shall soar, together, To a different time and place.

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Tournament City Derby Dolls (TCDD) will go to any length to crush their opponents when on the flat track. But, after the bout is over, the foes become fast friends and share stories over a couple of beverages. “We all get together and talk about how awesome it was and compliment each other on the good hits and the awesome bruises that we’re going to have,” said Jayne (Lucky 13) Allen, a Derby Doll. “The competition stays on the track. The Dolls’ first bout of the season — against

the Anarchy Angels of Cloverdale — is scheduled for 7 p.m. on Saturday, April 21, at Memorial Arena. Tickets are $10, if bought in advance at The Ruby Room downtown, or $15 at the door. Two former Dolls — the Princess of Pain and Big Wang Theory — are now Angels. Allen does not expect things to get testy, but their presence on the floor might make things a little bit awkward. “It will be interesting,” Allen said, “That’s for sure.” The Dolls experienced growth last season, thanks in large part to great support from Kamloops residents,

and now have about 50 members. More than 700 people attended a bout last May at Memorial — the Dolls beat the Lumby Redneck Daisies 144-125. The growing size of the team has made life a little tougher for the local roller-derby gals, who don’t have a permanent home. “The thing that’s tough is the facilites,” Allen said. “The [Kamloops Indian Band] gym is only so big and right now it’s closed for renovations.” McArthur Island Curling Club is where the Dolls often practice. An ideal location for a permanent home would be an open ware-

house with a smooth concrete floor. Anyone in the city who might be able to help can contact the Dolls through their website, tcdd.ca. The last thing on the ladies’ minds on Saturday, however, will be off-floor issues. They will be focused on the task at hand — bringing some order to the Anarchy. “The girls have been training extremely hard, working on strategy and perfecting their gameplay,” Allen said. “Everybody is learning in leaps and strides.”

Season Tickets The Dolls will be selling season tickets at

the bout on Saturday. They cost $40, which buys four nights — including Saturday’s bout — of roller-derby viewing.

Roller-derby basics Two teams of five players — one jammer (scorer), three blockers (defence) and a pivot — race counter-clockwise on a flat-surface circuit track. Rounds, or jams, last up to two minutes. Jammers must first pass the opposing team’s entire pack. After doing so, jammers earn single points every time they pass an opposing team member. The TCDD are part of the Roller Derby Association of Canada.

TCC fee a cash grab

Kamloops Target Sports Association

29th Annual Kamloops

This cheap Scotsman has a bone to pick

I

’VE BEEN getting passed by seven-year-olds in the slow lane at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre for more than a year now. I tend to throw up a couple of bricks on the basketball court and then hammer out a few breaststrokes before hitting the showers. Usually, I leave the Tournament Capital Centre feeling refreshed, despite the embarrassment. Last week, though, I left with my Speedo in a knot. A $15 administrative fee for a missed payment had me puffing furiously on my post-swim cigarette. I lost my Visa in Vancouver a few weeks back. I was at a bar and left it behind the counter (we’re being transparent here, right?). It took me about a week to receive my new credit card — my automatic gym-membership payment to the City of Kamloops did not go through and my account was frozen. No problem, I thought. I’ll just pay the 30-something dollars I owe the city this month with my new Visa, then polish my aggressive butterfly stroke and go home. When the kind lady at the front desk threw out a dollar number in the 50s, that’s when

MARTY HASTINGS The Reporter’s RAMBLINGS my 1970s swimming goggles started to fog up. Maybe I’m just a cheap Scotsman. That might be true — but it’s also about the principle. I’ve been a loyal TCC member for more than a year. I’ve never missed a payment. It seemed a harsh penalty for an honest mistake, so I took my grievance up with the city. The very-accomodating city employee I spoke with said the $15 penalty is a credit-card administration fee. What does that mean? It’s a manhours thing, I was told. I said the fee might be a turn-off to customers — because it was to me — and asked if the city employee agreed. The response: “I do but, equally, we have a responsibility to the taxpayers, of which you are one, and so is this as a business.” To me, it seems like a cash grab. Does it really cost

$15-worth of man hours for someone to smash a few buttons on the keyboard, or run my new Visa through the debit machine? I doubt it. Surely the task can be accomplished during a TCC employee’s regular shift hours. Granted, I should have called the TCC when I lost my Visa — that was my mistake. But, it was the first time it happened and it was an innocent error. I simply forgot. Let’s make one thing clear — I don’t want my money back. (Shortly after I finished writing this column, I received an email saying I would be refunded the $15 because the contract I signed — an older contract — never mentioned the fee. I sincerely appreciate the gesture, all jokes aside.) Getting my money back is not what this is about, though. It’s not about me proving to the great citizens of Kamloops what a humanitarian I

am, either. I think most people can relate to the feeling of knowing you’re being ripped off and not being able to do anything about it — that’s what it’s about. If there is a new contract that does mention the discredited credit-card penalty, it should be amended. The TCC powersthat-be should devise a system in which members receive a phone call or an email asking them to pay their regular dues now or pay extra later. Or, if that’s not doable, what about a one-time grace clause? That way, we could save city staff from the supposedly painstaking duty of the dreaded credit-card administration-fee task — and consequently save gymgoers $15. I know the city values its TCC patrons. The facility is awesome and I don’t plan on nixing my membership just yet. That being said, I think the fee is ridiculous and something should be done about it.

WolfPack stay close to home with new recruits By Marty Hastings SPORTS REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The TRU WolfPack athletics’ program has added some more local flavour to its ranks. Tyler Jackson, a Westsyde secondary graduate, will play for TRU’s hockey team next season, and Spencer Jaroszuk, who will graduate from South Kamloops secondary in June, will play for the WolfPack men’s basketball squad.

Jackson, 20, played forward for the junior B Kamloops Storm of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League for four seasons. He was the team’s captain in the 20112012 campaign. “He is a smaller player and reminds me a lot of Steve Yzerman,” Storm head coach Geoff Smith said. “He is a great skater, plays well defensively and on the power play. “Tyler is a well-

rounded player and was a pleasure to coach.” Last season, Jackson racked up 76 points in 46 regular-season games and 20 points, 10 of them goals, in 13 playoff games. “Tyler had an exceptional junior career with the Storm and we are looking forward to adding his skill-set to our lineup. It is great when we can bring a player with his character to our program.” Don Schulz, the

Pack’s bench boss, coached Jackson in the Kamloops Minor Hockey Association peewee AAA ranks. Jackson is studying the sciences at TRU and would like to become a chiropractor. Jaroszuk is a 6-foot9 forward who will bring much-needed size to the WolfPack. “He is big and he can shoot,” said Scott Clark, TRU’s head coach. “From that perspec-

tive, he has some skills. “The big thing is that he is going to have to learn to rebound and defend his position. If he can do that, he will find himself with some playing time.” Jaroszuk said his main strength is shooting. “My size and versatility will also be an advantage,” he said. He averaged 26 points, three blocks and 15 rebounds per game game last season with

the South Kamloops Titans, which finished the season 9-3. Jaroszuk will be taking courses in the bachelor of science program with future plans for a master’s degree in physiotherapy. Former TRU basketball and soccer player Tim Unaegbu coached Jaroszuk last season.

“Spenny can score from anywhere on the floor,” Unaegbu said. “He was arguably the best shooter in the province for his size. We relied on him a lot for the offence of our team. He is a big body and is more than confident on the offensive side of the court. — With files from TRU

Pack baseball team to benefit from havoc in Calgary By Marty Hastings SPORTS REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Inclement weather in Cow Town has paved the way for four TRU WolfPack baseball games in the River City later this month. “They had a huge windstorm a few

weeks ago which left signs from the outfield all over the park,” WolfPack head coach Ray Chadwick said. “It will not be ready by that weekend, so we’ve been asked to host.” The WolfPack will host four games, two against the Calgary

Dinos and two against the Vancouver Baseball Institue Mariners, over a three-day span, from Friday, April 27, to Sunday, April 29. TRU is hosting Calgary at 6 p.m. on Friday. On Saturday, the Wolfpack will play the

Dinos at 1 p.m. and the Mariners at 7 p.m. The Pack will close the weekend with a tilt against the Mariners at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Norbrock Stadium is the Pack’s home diamond. TRU will be in Lethbridge this weekend to play the home-

town Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs and the Dinos. The WolfPack are hosting the Canadian Baseball Conference Championships from May 11 to May 13 at Norbrock. — With files from TRU

Glass-wielding man arrested after Juniper store robbed By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A 22-year-old man is in police custody after an armed robbery at the convenience store in Juniper Ridge on Wednesday, April 18. Kamloops Mounties were called to the Juniper Market, located at 2049 Highland Dr., at about 10:40 a.m. for a reported robbery. RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said the suspect entered the store and ordered everyone to get on the ground. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had a piece of glass in his hand at the time and also started to throw some things around,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He grabbed the money from the cash register and then fled from the store on foot.â&#x20AC;?

Officers responding to the incident spotted a man matching the suspectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s description walking down a path toward Valleyview, just off Highland Drive. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was taken in to custody at that point,â&#x20AC;? Ward said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He had used the glass he had to cut himself in the neck area, causing minor injuries to himself.â&#x20AC;? Ward said the suspect was taken to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The male is known to the police and with a history of mental illness problems in the past,â&#x20AC;? he said. Police are expected to recommend an armed-robbery charge against the suspect. Ward said the investigation is ongoing.

Shuffling off on a humourous note By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

With a script written by David Bottrell — who also penned Steel Magnolias — Dearly Departed is rife with clever dialogue. Consider this line: “When I die, don’t tell nobody. Just bury me in the backyard and tell everybody I left you.” The speaker, Ray-Bud, is coping with ever-increasing bills from his father’s funeral — which hasn’t even happened yet. “It’s just such clever dialogue,” said Pat Zogar, who is directing the Kamloops Players in its production of Dearly Departed. “And, the characters are so well drawn.” The plot is simple — RayBud’s dad drops dead in the first scene and the rest of the action involves getting him buried, something that includes Ray-Bud’s mom wanting “Mean and surly” inscribed on the tombstone. An ensemble piece, the play has 16 in its cast, Zogar said, a size not usually associated with the Players. “But, I didn’t know that, so I

The end result, Zogar said, is a smart, funny play that will

Fraser Valley band Pardon My Striptease (pardonmystriptease.com) shares the stage on Friday, April 20, with Kamloops band The Counter Culprits (thecounterculprits.tk) at the Dirty Jersey. Pardon My Striptease hit No. 1 on iTunes Canada with Pray for LJ, written for lead singer Andrew Putt’s young daughter, Lilee Jean, who has brain cancer. The band said it would donate the money it makes from the song to the B.C. Children’s Hospital and challenged Nickelback — which had the No. 1 spot until bumped by Striptease — to match that donation. The band, along with the Vancouver Province and Sun newspapers, matched the amount, with Nickelback lead singer Chad Kroeger donating $50,000 to the hospital. The total raised came to more than $100,000.

Spelling Bee buzzing with student quirks By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ashlie Corcoran has never competed in a spelling bee — although she did manage to take in one recently for about a half hour during a lunch break last month. It was brief — too brief, Corcoran said — but also gave her a bit of insight into the whole process of young students taking to a stage and having to meet a high standard to win a trophy. The observations she took away with her from that competition in Vancouver will help her as she directs the last play in the 2011-2012 Western Canada Theatre season, The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. “It was totally captivating,” Corcoran said of the half-hour of watching. The spellers ranged in age from 10 to about 15, she said, and ran the gamut in other ways, too.

For example, there was a little girl whose feet didn’t touch the floor as she sat in her chair, waiting for her turn. Next to her was an obviously older teen who, Corcoran said, had to be at least six feet tall and had the beginnings of a moustache visible. The WCT play also has a range of characters, including the A-student who never gets anything wrong, the nerd, the shy student and the show-off. A one-act musical, Spelling Bee is based on an improvisational play, C-R-E-P-U-S-C-U-L-E, performed in New York. It includes an emcee who also won an earlier bee, the official word reader — who has been missing in action for five years — a comfort counsellor ordered to get involved as part of his community-service sentence and the six spellers. One of them, William Barfee (do not pronounce it the way it is spelled, he will ensure everyone knows), spells his words

out with his foot on the floor first. Another got to the finals when a winner and a runner-up could not take part. Another is incapable of concentrating because he’s too busy staring at a beautiful girl. It’s the first time Corcoran has directed the play or been involved with WCT. A friend and colleague of Daryl Cloran, WCT’s artistic director, Corcoran said she loves the play because it is so much fun. “I can’t even pick a favourite character,” she said. “I take turns. “Whoever is onstage is my favourite.” Corcoran comes to Kamloops with an extensive theatrical background, including the Stratford Festival, the Canadian Opera Company, Tarragon Theatre, the Shaw Festival, the Toronto Fringe Festival and Theatre Smash. She studied drama in Kingston at Queen’s

University, did a master’s degree in directing in London, England, and has won several awards. When asked why she was drawn to the theatre, Corcoran paused. “I’m curious about all types of theatre,” she said, noting she didn’t move into the field until university, having studied music in high school. “That left me feeling really behind, but then I realized it’s ridiculous to think you’re behind when you’re only 18.” One of the first plays she saw was Les Miserables at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver. Corcoran said she made her parents stay long after the final curtain call and marvelled at all she could see behind the stage, right back to the concrete walls. “And, before I came here for Spelling Bee,” she said, “I was working at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre and to see those cement walls again was so cool.”

April shines spotlight on Autism Spectrum Disorder Did you know that Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects about one in every 110 children and youth in B.C. and is one of the most prevalent developmental disorders in the world? That’s why it’s so important to work in collaboration with families, service providers and community organizations, to build community awareness and continue to focus collective efforts to help support and enrich the lives of those living with ASD. Every year in April, the B.C. government, families, service providers, community organizations, and municipalities unite for Autism Awareness Month to recognize and honour children, youth and their families who are living

COMMUNITY with autism. The month kicked off in B.C. with the annual Autism Awareness Walk, which was hosted by the Canucks Autism Network.

A culinary Mecca in City of Roses By Hans Tammemagi SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

S

INCE MY WIFE, ALLYSON, IS a formidable cook, we decided to visit Portland, Ore., so she could chomp on the culinary scene and see if it was truly worthy of its burgeoning reputation. We were encouraged by friends, who enthused about exoticfood carts, generous happy hours — an unknown entity in Canada — and talented chefs with a fierce locavore bent. Reasonable prices and the lack of a sales tax also drew us. First-timers in Portland, we decided to take a walking tour — the Epicurean Excursion, of course. We meandered through the trendy Pearl District, which, as the guide explained, was the city’s first green redevelopment of an industrial area. At Pearl Bakery, we sampled croissants, baguettes and bouchons. The chef is so exacting he re-calibrates his recipes with each new batch of flour. We sipped an incredibly rich chocolate drink at Cacao, made from 72 per cent chocolate (chocolate bars typically use about 13 per cent). At the In Good Taste Cooking School, we sampled savoury condiments chased by a local pinot noir aged in oak. Ally declared the Madras curry mustard her favourite. We entered the garish Ringlers Pub, with a long, colourful history. Upstairs are the

McMenamins Brewery and the Crystal Ballroom with a floating floor. The guide described Portland’s Beervana reputation (most breweries per capita in the world) as we savoured handcrafted Sunflower India Pale Ale, Terminator Stout and Hammerhead Ale. Our next stop, Hot Lips, proved to not only cook tasty pizzas, but was also at the cutting edge of green. All ingredients are local and fresh, leftovers are composted, extra warmth from the oven is used to heat the building and even their delivery car is electric. The guide continuously lobbed food factoids at us and regaled us with anecdotes about the city’s history. Feeling more knowledgeable, we wandered to the Saturday Farmers’ Market. Buskers played, children ran and everyone was carrying bags and baskets laden with fresh produce. The yeast that got Portland’s culinary cake rising, we learned, is the vigorous agricultural community, an outcome of the progressive policy to preserve farmland by halting urban sprawl. As we could see, everyone can easily get fresh local ingredients. The next day, we sampled the food-cart scene, which Portland has raised to a new level. There are approximately 600 carts located in pods throughout the city. We headed to the city-centre pod and were immediately intimidated by the incredible choice. It seemed every nationality in the world

was represented. We drooled at Thai curries, Indian Tandoori chicken, German bratwurst, stirfried pumpkin, Polish sausage, Korean barbecue and much, much more. After circling the block several times, Ally finally bit into a southern barbecuedchicken burger from Touchdown’s cart, while I chose chicken dumplings from the Dumptruck cart. Yum! That evening, we headed back to the Pearl District and the Bluehour Restaurant, little knowing what a gastronomic epic awaited us. L’Heure Bleue, as its also known, sits in an elegant, tallceilinged ex-warehouse and is arguably Portland’s top eatery, having enticed chef Thomas Boyce away from Wolfgang Puck’s renowned Spago Restaurant in Los Angeles. We proceeded to sample our way through an eight-course meal with paired wines that convinced us this is one eatery we’d want to revisit often. A sparkling Argyle brut from Oregon accompanied our starter, a crispy bruschetta with shrimp, chorizo on a white bean puree. The second course, hamachi sashimi on grilled seasonal mushrooms, was elegant and exceedingly tender with a bite of pickled ginger. The subtle flavours intermingled perfectly with the 2009 New Zealand sauvignon blanc. Our server explained each course and the sommelier told us why he had selected each accompanying wine.

As one delicious course followed another, Ally urged: “Don’t eat so much, there’s lots more to come.” “Impossible,” I declared, raising my glass. How could I turn down even a small fraction of the delicacies that confronted us: Fois gras coated with riesling jelly, octopus terrine with a chili lime vinaigrette, sweet-corn tortellini, Dungeness crab risotto, leg of lamb with olive tapenade and pan-seared salmon? The presentation was superb and each course a sculpted work of art. Sipping a late-harvest riesling, the Kaffir lime custard and coconut ice cream melting in my mouth, I emitted a tiny burp. It was one of the most memorable dinners ever. As we waddled

toward our hotel, I asked if Ally had enjoyed the visit to Portland. “ Absolutely,” she responded, gently patting my ample midsection. “Portland is definitely a superb place to enjoy good food.”

Spring down to city hall for tree coupons The City of Kamloops will once again hand out tree coupons to residents, and for the fourth year running the $20 discount will also apply to fruit trees. Parks operations supervisor Shawn Cook says fruit trees were added to the program at the request of some residents, but still only account for about 10 per cent of the trees purchased using the coupons. While the trees can attract bears if untended, Cook says the fruit trees planted using city coupons have been put in specifically to grow food for their owners. “They actually use the fruit,” he says. “They’re growing food and using the fruit. They weren’t just letting it drop on the ground, and that’s when bears become a problem.” Of the 1,000 coupons handed out annually, Cook says about 100 are used to plant fruit trees. Shade trees are the more popular option. The coupons are available on a first come, first serve basis starting Monday, April 16. Pick them up at City Hall or the Public Works Centre at 955 Concordia Way from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

FAITH

Reconstituted and re-moulded young widow Remember — He is the potter with all rights to make us His vessel

N

OT TOO LONG AGO, ONE OF MY YOUNG FRIENDS, ALSO IN CHRISTIAN MINISTRY, LEFT FOR HIS HEAVENLY ABODE, LEAVING BEHIND HIS 29-YEAR-OLD WIFE. While it is hard to imagine a life without one’s life partner at such a young age, life throws a curve at all of us — young or old. In order to counsel the deceased wife, I looked up the story of another young widow in the Bible, the story of Ruth in the Old Testament. Ruth was torn apart by the choice she had to make when she lost her husband. She loved her country and her parents and relatives. How could she

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH choose between them and her mother-inlaw? No doubt they all had told her what decision to make at this time. But, now, standing on the road together, even her mother-inlaw advised her to turn back to her own relatives and forget those years when she had learned to love the God of Israel — the God whom her husband had taught her to love. Her mind instantly

replayed the happy years with her nowdeceased husband and his family. She had overcome many differences she had faced because he was a foreigner. He worshipped a different God. His ways were different. He held different ideals, rules, attitudes and morals. One by one, she made decisions to go his way, not hers. She decided to embrace his God as her own and not just as his God. She recalled the hurting, the unreality of those early days when she and her sister-in-law and mother-in-law all suffered together. How they helped and encouraged each other in their sorrow. She loved her hus-

band’s mother, Naomi, even more than that she loved her God. Now, her motherin-law wanted her to return to her own country. Ruth had to choose between her blood relatives and the God in whom she had come to trust. Unknown to her, her choice decided whether she would become an ancestor of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. We seldom even know at the time what will be the results of our choices in life. If we choose in obedience to God, we need never say later: “If only I had known what the result would be.” What enables us to make hard decisions in life? First, we practise the small, day-by-day

ones we know we ought to carry out. Through these experiences, our character is moulded. Each hard choice makes it easier to make the next one right. She came through this latest period of indecision feeling wrung out but happy. She chose to go with Naomi, not just because Naomi had been a good mother to her, not just because she and Naomi had been through hard experiences together, but because she had learned God is trustworthy. Without Him, she could not face life. God controls our circumstances in order to mould our character as a potter moulds the clay in his hands. Ruth spoke some of the most sublime

words found in the scripture: “Where you go I will go. Your people will be my God. Where you live, I will live. Where you die, I will die and be buried.” As she put her unknown future into the hands of God, she had no idea her name would be recorded in the Bible as the great-grandmother of the greatest King of Israel, and as an ancestor of Jesus Himself — she, an outsider, a foreigner, a young helpless widow. Our circumstances may be horrific or ordinary. The Lord knows what is needed in our life and perfectly fits our experiences to mould in us the character He wants. We have the choice to co-operate with God or to resent Him

and His plans. Remember — He is the potter with all rights to make us the kind of vessel that He can use. He is using His hands to personally create the circumstances that will perfectly fit us for His use. Co-operate with Him, don’t become bitter. Become a vessel fit for the Master’s use.

ARTHRITIS

Pain free in 2 weeks!

Free Soup Bowl

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

Heartburn Reflux

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, noodles, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box.  Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC  Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA Very happy with #39 acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking anti-acid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt. Prospect, IL  Suffered with reflux, choking and coughing. After starting Bell #39 I feel great. Amazed about the complete relief. Thanks from the bottom of my heart. Katarina Tusa, 63, North York, ON Was sleeping sitting up to avoid reflux. I thought I had this health problem for life like my other family members. Bell #39 brought quick relief. Can sleep now normally, have more energy, feel great. Bell products are quite different. Virginia Grant, 67, Markham, ON No need to make claims. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL  My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON  I finally found the right approach to losing weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar #40 is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN  Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

E WERE ALL SET. My mom and sister and I had just received our copy of the Let’s Go Band! fundraiser cookbook and found the first recipe we wanted to try. “Butter, milk, eggs, flour, water. Should be easy enough,” mom said, glancing to the pot on the stove. We were making cream puffs, just like the ones from the bakery downtown. The first step was to cook the ingredients for choux pastry in a pot on the stove, stirring like mad until it formed a glossy mass. Altogether, the method didn’t seem any more difficult than making play dough, a thing we had long since mastered. The difference here, though, was this paste was meant to puff into perfect little shells, into which we would spoon sweetened clouds of whipped cream. Even before measuring the flour, the three of us were anticipating the final result, dusted with a snowfall of icing sugar. Step One: Into the pot went the milk, water, butter and a pinch of salt. Step Two: Bring to a boil and then, having scorched the milk, change pots. Step Three: Add flour and stir, stir, stir! Step Three: Beat in eggs, then drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Step Four: Bake. We were all set. My mom and sister

and I had just received our copy of the Let’s Go Band! fundraiser cookbook and found the first recipe we wanted to try. “Butter, milk, eggs, flour, water.

The first step was to cook the ingredients for choux pastry in a pot on the stove, stirring like mad until it formed a glossy mass. Altogether, the method didn’t seem any more difficult than making play dough, a thing we had long since mastered.

Step Two: Bring to a boil and then, having scorched the milk, change pots. Step Three: Add flour and stir, stir, stir! Step Three: Beat in eggs, then drop by heaping tablespoonfuls onto a cookie sheet. Step Four: Bake. Now, perhaps it was all of our peering into the oven, when steam was meant to be building inside the pastry. Perhaps it was a failure of the recipe to note exactly how the baking and drying should be accomplished. Or, perhaps it was because, the moment the oven timer dinged, we removed the puffs from the oven, split them in half and, into the still hot, still goo-ish centres, dolloped our whipped cream. It was cream that,

naturally, puddled back into our hands. Suffice to say, our cream puffs were nothing like the pastry-shop cream puffs from downtown. Over the years, other kitchen disasters have taken their place alongside the cream puffs. There was my sister’s runny fudge, which my niece’s kindergarten teacher stealthily disposed of. And, then, there was

my own very first ever angel food cake. I believe I was 10 and the cake, a Betty Crocker, was meant as a surprise for my mother, after she had spent the evening coffee-ing with friends. It all seemed to be going so well. Even after peeking several times during baking, the cake stayed near the top of the pan, and hardly fell more than an inch.

And, so, while I waited, I imagined easing the cake from its pan and having it stand tall upon a plate. I imagined slathering it with pudding icing and leaving it on the table for mom to find. I imagined how proud she would be to discover a baker in the family. I imagined becoming a baker and someday baking a cake that did not come from a box. And, then, well, I

unmoulded the cake and re-learned an important lesson about oven doors and steam.

Make every breakfast a flavourful family affair We all know breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but it isn’t just

because of the food you eat. According to child psychologist Dr. Tony

Volk, breakfast is a great opportunity to fit important family time into a child’s busy day.

right foot for the rest of the day. Making it happen is not an easy task of

By gathering around the breakfast table as a family you can start your child off on the

course, so take a look at these helpful tips to get you started:

Set realistic goals

A p r i l

December 22– January 19

January 20– February 18

February 19– March 20

The home improvement bug hits, and the to-do list grows. A little windfall helps with the budget. Debate continues at work. Where do you stand, Capricorn? The joke’s on you this time, Aquarius, when a young friend turns the tables. Laugh it off and compliment them on their bravado. A deadline draws near.

You’ll get only one chance, Pisces. Don’t blow it. Attention to detail is everything. Experimentation in the kitchen makes for exciting mealtimes.

Wise up, Aries. All is not as it seems at home. Something is up, and the sooner you find out what it is, the sooner you can join the fun.

Money troubles come to an end with some strategic planning. A million opportunities are in store. Enjoy your time in the sun, Taurus.

You receive rave reviews for a job well done. Celebrate with a few close friends. A design plan nears completion. One final push, Gemini.

Affairs of the heart move front and center, and passion burns bright. A review of your finances confirms you’re on the up and up. Congrats, Cancer.

June 22– July 22

You can spin it anyway you want, Libra, but what’s done is done. You can’t go back, so you might as well go forward and that might involve September 23– making amends.

October 22 Waste not, want not, Leo. The need to go green becomes clear and you must get all hands on deck for the ultimate impact. A secret is revealed.

July 23– August 22

Traipsing down memory lane inspires you to make a big change. Don’t keep your family guessing, Virgo. Spill the beans and prepare for a joyful reaction.

August 23– September 22

October 23– November 21

November 22– December 21

Support for an idea mounts, and you must be prepared to act, Scorpio, should the green light be given. Health woes ease for a family member with some trusted advice.

The debate at home begins. Stay on the fence for as long as you need to, Sagittarius. Rush and you could end up in a bit of a pickle.

It is important to set goals that are attainable. If you never have family breakfasts, start by making the effort to do it once or twice a week. As it becomes more routine for everyone, increase it to four or five times a week.

Involve the whole family Engage kids in the preparation process to get quality family time while helping them develop their own healthy breakfast habits. “Teaching children the importance of a balanced breakfast while they are young is the best way to ensure they stick to it later in life,” Volk said. An easy dish for kids to prepare is a breakfast pizza: Start with a whole-grain

pita and while one child spreads on the Nutella, another can prepare the fruit toppings.

Mix it up on weekends Make weekend breakfasts special by incorporating quality family time. It could be a themed breakfast, you could invite the grandparents over or even have breakfast in bed. By incorporating a balanced family breakfast into your child’s day, you are helping to set them up for success from the moment they wake up. To help make breakfast fun for the whole family, Nutella is giving away bread cutters.

Eating with knowledge

W

OULD YOU BE surprised to hear a salad can contain more calories than a burger? Would it influence your choice if you knew the nutrition information of your food before you ordered? Eating out can provide a nice break from the kitchen but, if you don’t choose your menu item wisely, you will likely end up taking in way more calories and salt than you expected. To address this issue, the provincial government is working with the restaurant industry to implement the Informed Dining program. Participating restaurants provide consumers with easy-to-understand nutrition information, with menus or menu boards displaying the program logo and a statement directing the customer to nutrition information for menu items.

SIMONE JENNINGS Healthy HELPINGS Nutrition information may be provided in menu inserts or will be available upon request. Standard menu items will have information about the calories and 13 core nutrients found on Canadian food-nutrition labels (total fat, saturated fat, trans-fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, dietary fibre, sugar, protein, vitamin A, vitamin C, iron and calcium). This is a voluntary program, so it is not guaranteed your favourite restaurants will be providing easy access to nutrition information. As well, the program

is new, so it may take some time to catch on — but it’s a step in the right direction to keep consumers informed and influence the restaurant industry to provide healthy choices. For more information, go online to healthyfamiliesbc.ca/home/informeddining. For the many times when you do not have access to the nutrition information, here are some tips for making healthier choices when eating out: • Start right: Avoid high-calorie appetizers like creamy dips, breaded chicken wings and anything deep-fried. Opt for lower-calorie starters like a brothbased soup or a side salad (no bacon, cheese or croutons). Keep your meal light; decline bread baskets. • Opt for water: Sugary drinks and alcohol are liquid calories. A typical 16-ounce

Celebratin g 25 Years wit h Ex cl

usive

serving of regular pop, iced tea or fruit juice will add roughly 200 calories and 11 teaspoons of sugar to your meal. • Salads should be a healthy choice: Salad entrees that have lots of cheese, bacon and dressing can have more fat and calories than an alldressed burger. Some pasta, taco or Asian-noodle salads contain few vegetables and lots of calories. Opt for a leafy green salad that contains nuts, eggs, legumes, or grilled chicken or fish. Ask for the dressing on the side. • Limit the portion size: Most restaurant portion sizes are too big. Ask to have half the meal plated and half wrapped to take home. An appetizer and a salad can be a good alternative to a large entree.
