Will city hall take on Big Sugar? New York’s move has councillor’s interest By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

ES, IT’S BEEN A WET start to June in Kamloops — but nothing out of the ordinary. That’s the word from Environment Canada meteorologist Jim Steele, who said the Tournament Capital is basically bone dry compared to some other B.C. communities. “Typically in the month of June,

we’ll get 35 millimetres of rain in Kamloops,” he told KTW. “It’s one of our more unsettled months, no doubt about that.” So far this month, Steele said, the city has seen nine millimetres of the wet stuff. That’s just over one-quarter of the monthly average in about a week — in other words, pretty much normal. Does it still seem like a lot? Steele offered some perspective. XSee RAIN A12

The recent heavy rainfall in Kamloops has caused a rapid rise in river levels, forcing joggers to find their own detour routes now that the pedestrian pathway under the train bridge in Riverside Park is flooded. According to Environment Canada, the rain will remain through the weekend, with the sun expected to return on Monday, June 11. Dave Eagles/KTW

While New York City is buzzing about its mayor’s push to ban the sale of large pops and sugary drinks, a Kamloops councillor is working on a motion of her own to get the Tournament Capital eating better. Coun. Nelly Dever hasn’t decided what shape her own motion will take, but told KTW she wants it to be focused on “improving the quality of food that is accessible out there.” In New York, the proposed ban would restrict the size of sugary beverages sold in restaurants, movie theatres and sports arenas to 473 milliletres or less. A typical bottled soda contains 591 milliletres. The ban would cover sweetened iced tea and energy drinks, but wouldn’t restrict the size of juices, diet soft drinks, alcoholic drinks or dairy-based concoctions such as milkshakes. It also wouldn’t apply in grocery or convenience stores. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg has said the ban is meant to help

counter obesity in the Big Apple. Dever, who owns Nelly’s Executive Fitness, said she sees the move as a good starting point. “It’s really nice to see that one of the larger North American cities is trying to take some sort of position,” she said, adding Canadian drink sizes also appear to be expanding rapidly. Dever is working on a survey of the city’s fast-food restaurants to find out what options exist right now. She said she has counted more than 300 — but trying to come up with a fast-food bylaw is complicated by the fact some restaurants do offer healthier choices than their dinein counterparts. She said the idea is inspired by the decline in health she has seen locally. “We’re having children come to us who have Type 2 diabetes, which was really unheard of 15 years ago,” she said. Dever hopes to draft a motion in the next several months, but wants it to be something the public can support that leaves the final choice of what

they eat and drink up to them. “It’s one of those things where you say, ‘Where can you help but not overstep?’” she said. “People can make up their own minds, but maybe with a little bit of direction.” Other councillors reached by KTW about the New York City plan were lukewarm on the idea of the ban. Donovan Cavers believes the best way to improve eating is to try to put healthy choices front and centre. “In the city facilities, there’s now healthy Lean Machine vending machines,” he said. “Putting them in more prominent locations rather than the straight-up pops is, I think, probably a better way of going about it.” Arjun Singh said he’d rather see government promote healthy options, rather than penalize people for unhealthy choices. “I favour carrot more than stick,” he said. Nancy Bepple called the big-drink prohibition an “interesting idea,” but said a restriction of that sort might be better left up to the province to debate.

Awareness breeds awards names to the provincial organization, which awards volunteers and awareness-raisers across the province annually. KTW reporter Dale Bass took home a printmedia award for her series on dialysis patients and features she’s written about a domino kidney transplant that involved two Brocklehurst neighbours and a Revelstoke man’s path to a heart transplant at 19. Shaw Cable reporter Kirk Baethke took home the organization’s provincial-media award for a transplant story about a four-year-old boy waiting for a match. The Kamloops Funeral Home was recognized for the years it has promoted kidney-related events on its sign. Maureen Thompson, a dialysis patient, received an award for her support of other kidney patients. Thompson, who spends 25 hours a week

on dialysis, volunteers at events like World Kidney Day each year and also helps educate other dialysis patients and their families. She said she got involved because other

volunteers like BonnerBrown were so dedicated and enthusiastic. “It’s benefitting me in the long run,” Thompson said. “And she’s just such a lovely lady that you want to help.”

REMEMBER THE SUNSHINE? It was less than a week ago that the sunshine for which Kamloops is known was soaking the city with its rays. It’s hard to believe amid the soggy gloom that has descended on the Tournament Capital, but only last week did Westmount elementary students take advantage of a glorious day to take their brainstorming session outside.

From prison Scrabble stabbing attack to trial By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

An Edmonton murder suspect accused of stabbing an undercover Mountie in Barriere last fall, before allegedly twice stabbing his cellmate at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre (KRCC) during a game of Scrabble, is slated to stand trial next week. Mark Lindsay, who is being held in custody in Alberta on an unrelated second-degree murder charge, is expected to appear in person in Kamloops Law Courts on Monday, June 11, to stand trial on a charge of aggravated assault relating to the KRCC incident. The son of a former Edmonton

police chief, the 25-year-old Lindsay is alleged to have stabbed his cellmate twice in the same eye — once with a pen and once with a pencil — last October. The cellmate, a 21-year-old Kelowna man, was left blinded in one eye. That incident took place about a month after Lindsay entered KRCC following his arrest north of Kamloops. He was apparently the subject of an RCMP Mr. Big undercover operation, in which officers pose as gangsters in an attempt to convince a suspect to confess to a crime. On Sept. 21 in Barriere, Lindsay is alleged to have stabbed an undercover Mountie with

whom he had been travelling from Edmonton to Kamloops. In a series of exclusive jailhouse interviews last year, Lindsay told KTW he and the officer were

hauling what Lindsay believed to be quads in a trailer being pulled by a pickup truck. Lindsay is alleged to have stolen the truck following the altercation. He was arrested by Kamloops Mounties near McLure a short time later. Lindsay said he did not know the man he was with was an undercover police officer. It is believed the Mr. Big investigation was launched after Lindsay’s ex-girlfriend, 31-year-old Dana Turner, vanished in Edmonton. Turner disappeared last August, days after Lindsay was released from an Alberta jail after serving 50 days for stabbing her in the head last June.

The mother of two’s body was found in a farmer’s field in central Alberta in October. In March, RCMP in Edmonton announced they had charged Lindsay with second-degree murder in relation to Turner’s death. Lindsay is slated to stand trial in Kamloops once again in August, on charges stemming from the alleged stabbing of the undercover officer in Barriere. His preliminary inquiry on the Alberta murder charge is expected to begin next year. Lindsay is the son of former Edmonton police chief John Lindsay, who is now a deacon in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Edmonton.

Cycling path complete By Andrea Klassen

Roger Parkes (left), Rick Poznikoff, Diana Hobbs, Wendy Bainbridge, Pat McEwen and Kathy Grieve attend the official opening of the pedestrian/cyclist bridge at the Valleyview interchange on Tuesday, June 5. The women are part of a cycling group, Cycling Chix, which is riding the new route in honour of member Maureen Laird, who succumbed to cancer in March. The women riders continue a tradition of cycling together that began five years ago. Dave Eagles/KTW

STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It wasn’t a perfect day for a bike ride, but that didn’t stop about a dozen members of the Cycling Chix from heading out on the Valleyview interchange. After more than two years of construction, the 1.1-kilometre path linking Valleyview Drive with Battle and Columbia streets officially opened with a ribbon cutting on Tuesday, June 5. Cycling Chix member Linda Kehoe said the group decided to use the event to honour Maureen Laird, a Valleyview member who died of cancer in March. “She used to ride to the downtown core almost daily, so we sort of incorporated this into a memorial ride,” she said, adding the new overpass would have “been vital for her [Laird] to get home.” The new stretch of path begins on East Valleyview Drive and runs west to the Columbia/ Battle interchange. A bridge to the north links it up with the Rivers Trail and Riverside Park. While the last of the construction on the path finished earlier this week, it’s been open to cyclists and pedestrians for about two months. “There were some wires across it for a while, but people needed it so badly they were cutting them — not our group, but some of the commuters,” said Kehoe, who estimated she has already ridden it 50 times. Valleyview is a favourite riding area for the Chix, but Kehoe said their old route from the

downtown included gravel patches, areas strewn with garbage and navigating around many large trucks backing onto the road. “Now we can go this way, which is so much nicer,” Kehoe said. “It’s a marked trail. Everyone feels safe.” City CAO David Trawin said the city plans install a counter to gauge the path’s popularity, but he’s already hearing good reports about its use. “I think some people internally and externally didn’t know how well it would be used but, even before the grand opening, one of the people came to me and said, ‘You know, I owe you an apology. It’s actually been used way more than I thought it would,’” he said. Getting the path to this point wasn’t easy for the city, however. Construction delays pushed back the project’s completion date several times. In 2010, the project stalled when a bin wall on the CP Rail right of way

next to the path needed replacing. The cost of the path also swelled from an original estimate of $4.2 million to $5.9 million, which was attributed partly to the amount of work needed to be done in the tight confines of Battle Street and the railroad tracks. Mayor Peter Milobar said the project has given the city more to work with when it comes to future bike-path projects. Because Kamloops has been socking money away for the Valleyview project since the early 2000s, Milobar said there’s now about $500,000 in reserves for bike paths and the same amount for sidewalk improvements, “where, 10 years ago, there was $100,000.” Of the $5.9 million spent on the project, just over $1 million came from city coffers and another $2 million came from the federal gas-tax fund. The remaining $2.7 million came from the province.

A first in B.C. at Tk’emlups Homebuilding loan project comes to Kamloops reserve By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

In the next two weeks, a member of the Tk’emlups Indian Band (TIB) will become the first person in B.C. to secure a homebuilding loan through a program designed to cut red tape for band members seeking mortgages. The program is part of the federal First Nation Market Housing Fund, aimed at increasing housing choices on reserves. While it has already been adopted by some bands in Eastern Canada, the TIB is the first in B.C. to roll out the program. Before the fund was developed, program consultant Scott Flamand said getting a bank loan to build or buy a home on reserve lands was a drawn-out hassle. Because reserve land can’t be seized by banks if a homebuyer defaults on a mortgage, Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada was originally responsible for guaranteeing band members’ loans. That wasn’t usually a speedy process. “You might have been already qualified at the bank and just needed a guarantee

from them, but the government would still have to approve it and it would still take six to eight months,” Flamand said. “There was one I heard of where it took over a year to get it.” Through the new program, the band negotiated with the Bank of Montreal to provide loans to its members, which the TIB guarantee themselves. Negotiations with other banks are also ongoing. Loans can be as high as $400,000 for a new build or home purchase. Renovation loans between $5,000 and $10,000 are also available. Flamand said interest rates are similar

and, in some cases lower, than what someone would pay to build or buy in the City of Kamloops. TIB housing manager Dan Rodgers said he hopes the program will encourage more band members to build and buy — and ultimately, stay — on the reserve. “There is a fairly long housing list for the band and the challenge would be to provide enough housing to meet the needs,” he said. To qualify for a loan under the program, a band member must be 19 or older, have access to a lot on the reserve, meet a lender’s approved minimum credit requirements and have no default with the band longer than 30 days.

While not all band members will qualify for a loan, Rodgers said bank staff plan to offer financial advice and mentorship to members who are aspiring to own a home in the future. He also hopes to set up workshops for high school-aged band members, which would explain credit ratings and the importance of savings plans and emphasize home ownership as a goal. Rodgers said it is not uncommon for several generations of one family to share a house on the reserve, noting making home ownership a viable option for adult children still living with their parents “would alleviate a lot of the pressures in our community.”

Memorial service planned for 1962 victims June 18 will mark 50 years since three Kamloops Mounties were shot and killed in city When the officers arrived at the building, the suspect — later identified as Booth — made a threatening gesture toward police with his rifle before fleeing on foot toward Peterson Creek. The Mounties followed Booth at 200 yards, yelling for him to drop the weapon. When the officers attempted to get closer to Booth to cut him off, the situation became more tense. Booth first fired at Pedersen, knocking him down with two shots. Pedersen returned fire, but was killed by a third shot from Booth, which struck the officer in the head. Weibsgerber, who was in plainclothes and unarmed, took cover behind a gravel box, while Keck opened fire from beneath the timber bridge Booth was standing on. Keck hit Booth once in the stomach, causing him to drop the rifle. Weisgerber attempted to run to the shooter and pick up the firearm, but Booth recovered and shot the constable three times in the stomach as he ran at him. Keck, still under the bridge, attempted to peek out to get another shot off at Booth. As he did, he was shot once in the head and died. Booth, who lived in Knutsford, then fled into the hills toward his home. He was killed in the upper Peterson Creek area during a firefight with police two hours later.

Kamloops Mounties plan to hold a “solemn memorial service” later this month to mark the 50th anniversary of a devastating shooting incident in Peterson Creek that left three constables dead. In 1962, constables Joe Keck, Donald Weisgerber and Gord Pedersen were shot and killed by George Booth. On Monday, June 18 — 50 years to the day the three Mounties were killed — the Kamloops RCMP detachment will hold an hour-long memorial service on Battle Street, between Fifth and Sixth avenues. “It rocked the community and the nation,” Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said. “Until Mayerthorpe . . . it was the singlelargest loss of life in RCMP history.” In 2005 in Mayerthorpe, Alta., four Mounties were shot and killed in an ambush. Learned said the memorial will include RCMP brass, government dignitaries, military representatives and family members of the three constables. Keck, Weisgerber and Pedersen were responding to a report of an armed man making threats at a government building in downtown Kamloops at about 9 a.m. on June 18, 1962.

On June 18, 1962, George Booth was standing on the this wooden bridge leading into Peterson Creek park when he shot and killed three Kamloops Mounties. Booth then ran into the rugged Peterson Creek terrain and, two hours later, was shot and killed by Mounties during a firefight. On June 18, the Kamloops RCMP will hold a memorial service in memory of fallen constables Joe Keck, Donald Weisgerber and Gord Pedersen.

The template from which all teachers should be created

M

Y SON GRADUATED last week and, while I could probably spend 600 words describing how awesome it was, how proud I was, how I wept when he got his graduation certificate and how amazed I was at how well kids at Beattie clean up, this isn’t about them. It’s about the teacher whose name was mentioned in almost every little précis about the grads, the response to the question about who they wanted to thank. That teacher is Steve Sorochan — and, if you’re ever looking for a model of a great teacher, talk to this man. This is a teacher who, when parents and students heard he might be leaving Beattie School of the Arts, sparked widespread concern that we might have to learn to exist without him. When he didn’t get the transfer he wanted that would have taken him closer to home, it led to us all telling him how sad we were for him — and then fistpumping for joy in the parking lot that we would not lose this man. This is a teacher who was thanked by a graduating student for helping her with her homework “even in the subjects he doesn’t teach.” What more can you ask for? For my family, Steve is the teacher who went to the powers-that-be at Beattie and told them our youngest, who lives with autism, could do it. Could handle regular classes, regular lessons, the homework, the projects, the requirements — all those things that will lead to graduation. Steve believed. Many have also believed in our

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL boy, but Steve was one of the few who also said: “He can do it and I’ll be there to help him.” Our second-youngest has also turned to Steve for help with assignments, not because Steve’s an easy teacher — he’s anything but. Rather, it’s because he listens to the kids, he believes in them, he helps them, he trusts them and, in doing that, he instils not just confidence, but something intangible, something that takes these kids a step beyond what they think they can accomplish. One year, I was trying to help my boy with his science homework but, the reality is, I dropped science after Grade 9 — and, even had I completed it, high school was a very long time ago for me. So, I’d go in early some mornings and Steve would teach me what he was teaching the kids — just enough that I could bluff it through helping with that night’s assignment. He never made me feel stupid, although, true to his own beliefs, he did wonder why anyone would drop science in Grade 9. He simply did what he had to do so that I could do what I had to do.

One of the grads at commencement thanked Steve for helping her understand science. Another thanked him for helping her with “everything, even the subjects he doesn’t teach.” One of the adults taking part told a story about yet another grad sitting up on the stage at Calvary Community Church. She talked of how, on this girl’s birthday, her sister stole her Teenburger and, every year since, Steve has bought the girl a Teenburger for her lunch. He doesn’t have to do it. It’s not part of his job. He just does it. Steve won’t be happy I wrote this column. He doesn’t like attention, just the satisfaction of doing his job well and watching his students succeed. But, it needs to be written not only because so many of those grads acknowledged they owe him their thanks, but because teachers have had a rough ride in the past many months. They’ve been called lazy, greedy, out-of-touch and a lot of other adjectives. They’ve been told they’re overpaid and underworked. For me, Steve isn’t unique. He’s special, but he’s not alone in that category of a great teacher who cares and gives so much. There are many of them out there who also deserve our thanks. So, in thanking Steve here, I’d like you all to know this parent, at least, appreciates you for everything you do. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

If recent news is any indication, many Canadians are not happy with their federal government. Stories include weekend protests over Bill C-38, the omnibus budget legislation introduced in March. Similar protests were staged across the country, while campaigns against the bill are mounting through letter-writing and other forms of pressure on the government, such as wearing green on Canada Day instead of the traditional proud red of the Maple Leaf. The outcry arises from the fact the budget bill contains far more than the financial facts and figures officially presented by the Tories earlier this spring. Instead, the more people delve into the budget, the more they realize it’s an attempt to quietly gut many programs and services provided by the government. The budget quietly (sneakily, many argue, since they’re buried in a 400-plus page tome) makes changes to more than 70 laws with massive implications. Other recent stories outline cutbacks with severe implications for immigration services, community archives and environmental protection. Other affected sectors include employment insurance, Old Age Security and health care. For some sectors, such as immigration, the cuts will result in added pressure on programs and services provided by the nonprofit sector. Ironically, the budget also includes $8 million to fund Canada Revenue Agency audits of charities, considered by some as a move to silence advocacy and free speech on key environmental issues. The Conservatives can use their majority to ram everything through. And, by packaging it all in an omnibus bill, to defeat one portion means to defeat everything. Some argue that’s exactly what is needed.

Kamloops: Definitely not Canada’s Senior Capital Editor: By boosting Heritage House user rates, Kamloops city council has continued to dismiss seniors’ concerns while piling on some bullying for good measure. Heritage House opened in 1971 as a place for seniors’ activities. It was built with significant contributions from seniors’ groups and individual donations. Over the years, the number of groups using the facility has steadily declined, while the city has made little effort to investigate the reasons and come up with a plan to better utilize the space. Can you imagine, say, a theatre business deciding the sole cure for declining attendance is to drastically bump up the ticket fees? That would be a prescription for even fewer people showing up. Let’s say a group of choral singers meets weekly and has 70 members. With an increase of just 80 cents a week per member over 50 weeks, that tri-

fle amounts to a daunting $2,800 per year. The group will have to be singing outside city hall with cups in hand in order to keep on going. To add insult, Coun. Nancy Bepple tartly reminded the dismayed seniors that they get free parking. Well, how gratuitous and insulting is that rebuke, given that parking is free at all city recreation and activity buildings? What I think is behind council’s mean-spirited action is the gutting of any value in Heritage House as an important resource for our aging population. This may be the plan, given the hundreds of thousands of dollars being poured into the beautification of Lorne Street, the loss of parking spaces and the proposal to expand Interior Savings Centre meeting rooms for the benefit of businesses near the waterfront. Consider that the $200,000-plus wasted on the abandoned parkade plan is far more

Small school with big heart Editor: The Pinantan Parent Advisory Council would like to acknowledge the 50 students of Pinantan elementary on their outstanding results during the heart and stroke fundraiser. Our goal was to beat last year’s total of $1,000 and reach a new goal of $1,500. With the help of our generous community and the continuous dedication of our teachers, the students strived and exceeded their goal, raising $1,720 as of May 25. The teachers really encouraged the kids to make this a fun and memorable event by having the students choose some incentives that would help their fellow students in their fundraising efforts. In the end, some of the students dressed up in goofy attire and a few (by their own choice) ate a raw egg in an effort to keep things fun. When all was said and done, it was a great success and fun was had by all. The children were so excited to have raised so much and to have participated in such an important and worthwhile cause.

than the amount we are talking about here. It is ironic council’s decision to hike Heritage House rates occurred in a week when census figures show Kamloops has a rapidly aging population. Recalling that council has been less than charitable in dealing with the request of seniors on the North Shore to assist with a drop-in centre, it’s time seniors woke up to the fact Kamloops is hardly a senior-friendly city. By gosh, I’m going down to city hall and shake my cane. Let’s begin to change things at an arrogant, wasteful and meanspirited city hall. Frank Dwyer Kamloops

WHAT’S YOUR TAKE?

Editor: For several months, I have read Bill Ligertwood’s Rational Thoughts column regarding God, faith and religion. I have great admiration for the time and effort he puts into expressing his atheistic views. After reading many of his columns, I am reminded of Graham Greene’s character of Sarah in his novel The End of the Affair. An agnostic, she converts to Christianity. When asked why by her former atheist lover, she explains that, after reflecting on the time and effort he had put into denouncing a god he did not believe existed, she had become convinced of God’s reality. Surely one would not spend such exertion denouncing nothing. While I accept Ligertwood’s right to his opinion and expressing it, I find his knowledge of 20th-century history to be rather superficial. In his latest column (‘Ruled and fooled,’ May 31) reflecting on the relationship between the ruling class and faith, Ligertwood states “the combination of ruler and faith can be

seen in the quasi-religions of Adolf Hitler, Joseph Stalin and the dynastic Kims of North Korea.” Whether or not the Stalinist brand of Marxism is a quasi-religion (I do not accept that description of those thuggish states at all), I would remind Ligertwood the Soviet Union was the first official atheist state in world history. This atheist state was responsible for killing 20 million of its own people. Oh that we all could live in such an atheistic paradise. Paul Corcoran Kamloops

City builds new predictions By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A jump in residential construction, coupled with some bigticket projects on the horizon, has the city of Kamloops rethinking its building-permit estimates for 2012. In May, the city issued about $20 million in residential permits, more than double the $8.7 million it issued in 2011. The permits included 15 new single family dwellings and 115 new multi-family units. In May 2011, the number of multi-family units added was eight. Acting director of development services Kundan Bubbar said developers are rushing to fill a residential void left by several quiet construction years. “For the last couple years, we haven’t seen too many new residential houses being built,”

he said. “Now, the inventory is almost diminishing and builders are taking advantage of low rates and also the demand in the market.” Permits are being issued mainly in Aberdeen, Westsyde, Batchelor Heights and Juniper. To date, the city has issued more that $79 million in permits, up from $68 million at this time last year. While the city had expected to issue between $120 and $140 million in permits this year, Bubbar said it’s now looking like Kamloops will be on par with last year, when permits totalled just over $162 million. “It shows the city is not in the same position as the other Okanagan cities are, where things are slowing down,” he said. “We are still doing better than

the average.” Commercial construction is also up slightly over last year, with $2.8 million in permits, compared to 2011’s $1.5 million. Bubbar said there are also a few major projects coming which

should keep permit stats high, including the $30-million Telus Data Centre, which is expected to finish the permitting process later this year, and several seniors’ residences in the works for the North Shore.

Kamloops beats PG — again The battle for animal-help supremacy is over and, just like in major-junior hockey, Kamloops beat Prince George again. As a result, the Tournament Capital won its SPCA City Challenge for the sixth time in a row. The final totals saw the Kamloops SPCA winning definitively by raising $40,140.38 in May, while the Prince George SPCA raised $21,406.02. Despite coming out as top dog, it was by no means a turkey-shoot for Kamloops. The River City trailed in the beginning, with Prince George tripling Kamloops’ total a few days into May — $12,000 to $4,500. After an incred-

SALES EVENT

as river levels rise. On the other side of that emergencymanagement coin is the B.C. Forest Service, which had been busy until rain started soaking much of the Interior last week. And, while the precipitation is good news for provincial firefighting crews, it won’t last forever. With that in mind, the Ministry of Forests announced this week a sweeping fire ban for the Kamloops Fire Centre, outlawing the burning of any waste or grass. The prohibition, which comes into effect on June 15, also bans all fireworks and burning barrels. It does not restrict cooking stoves or campfires measuring a halfmetre by a half-metre. The area covered by the ban stretches from Blue River to the U.S. border, and from west of Lillooet to east of Lumby. In Kamloops, Steele said, the rain clouds will likely stick around for the time being. “We’re not out of it yet,” he said. “There’s another disturbance coming through on Friday and into Saturday. “It looks like we’ll start to show improvements on Sunday, then Monday and Tuesday more sunshine and [temperatures] into the lowto-mid 20s.”

“In the Salmon Arm area, they’ve had 10 to 15 millimetres and, in the Kelowna area, about 10 millimetres,” Steele said of rain that has fallen. “But, when you go further, if you go up the North Thompson to Blue River, they’ve had 57 millimetres so far.” Steele also pointed to “incredible amounts of rain” in parts of the Kootenays and Northern B.C., where totals so far in June range between 30 and 70 millimetres. “In Kamloops, we’ve been just on the edge of the heavy precipitation,” he said, noting high-elevation mountain passes have even seen snow this week. According to Steele, this time of year is typically rainy in the Interior because of moist and cool weather systems that move across southern B.C. and northern Washington state in late May and June. The recent wave of wet weather prompted the B.C. River Forecast Centre — a provincial agency that collects and analyzes streamflow and snow-melt conditions — to issue a high streamflow advisory for a number of Interior tributaries. Included on that list is the South Thompson watershed and the North Thompson river system. It’s not a flood warning, but the advisory states “two-year flow levels” should be expected

FIRE EYES IN THE SKY Yes, it is as soggy as Vancouver this week, but the outdoor conditions can turn tinder-dry in a matter of days in the Kamloops Fire Centre region. Last week, the fire rating was high to extreme; this week, it is low. With more than 60 fires already having been doused this year, Conair fire service air tankers flying low as they leave from and return to Kamloops Airport will become a common sight in the skies above the Tournament Capital.

STAFF REPORTER

Saddle up, pardner, the third annual Scooter Rodeo is rolling into the Interior Savings Centre parking lot on Friday, June 8. The Western-themed workshop, which runs from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and is presented by the John Howard Society and Kamloops RCMP, focuses on educating scooter users on how to become better and safer drivers. Coreen DeCicco, Bedford Manor recreation co-ordinator, said safe scooter driving has become important as an aging population means more scooters on city sidewalks. “With the [Baby] Boomers aging and with the amount of aging people we have in Kamloops, it is becoming a concern,” DeCicco said. In addition to the workshop, there will be a barbecue where people can gather and socialize. DeCicco said the annual event is one that sees many familiar faces. “Some of the Bedford residents here, this will be their third year, and they’ve already come and said to me, rain or shine, they’re showing up.”

The main event is the obstacle course, which will be run by the RCMP. Putting their skills to the test, drivers will practise how to manoeuvre their scooter through drills such as steering, parking, turning and weaving. The course will be set up in the rear parking lot at ISC, with Const. George Buttles there to coach drivers on scooter safety and etiquette. For example, scooters must remain on sidewalks, operating as a pedestrian. Technicians from scooter shops Medichair and Mountain Medical will be at the rodeo to answer questions and supply scooters for test drives. They will also run maintenance pits, at which participants can have their scooters inspected. New this year is a scooter-washing station where participants can also have their rides shine. There will be giveaways and participants are encouraged to attend dressed in Western-themed outfits for a chance to win prizes. To register, call the City of Kamloops parks and recreation department at 250-828-3500 with the registration number 195532, or contact DeCicco at 250-371-0456. Drop-ins at the event are also welcome.

Labour council opposes LDB privatization The Kamloops and District Labour Council (KDLC) has unanimously passed a motion to condemn and oppose the provincial government’s decision to privatize the BC Liquor Distribution Branch (LDB). “The KDLC calls upon Premier Christy Clark and Minister Rich Coleman to immediately halt plans to sell off the Liquor Distribution Branch warehouse and distribution system,” said KDLC secretary-treasurer John Hall. “The warehouse is an integral part of an important public asset that generates almost a billion dollars a year in net

income that helps pay for public services like health, education and highways. “If these LDB operations are privatized, this will cost all of us — prices will go up, selection will go down, crime will go up and long-term revenue will go down,” Hall said. “The LDB is a profitable, socially responsible operation.” The KDLC will also be distributing a petition to save the LDB. “Once it [the LDB warehouse] is sold, there’s no going back,” Hall said. “Its sale would be an irredeemable loss for the people of British Columbia.”

BC NEWS

BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

The B.C. government is plugging a loophole that has prompted hundreds of people to claim they are giving away vehicles to friends or acquaintances, rather than pay sales tax on the transaction. When it adopted the harmonized sales tax in 2010, the B.C. government increased its separate tax on private sales of cars, boats and other vehicles to 12 per cent from seven per cent. The federal goods and services tax doesn’t apply to private sales and the B.C. government said it wanted to level the playing field between private sales and used cars purchased from dealers.

The jump in the tax rate appears to have made a chronic tax-evasion problem worse, as sales of even high-end cars have become popular to give away, at least on paper. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon said the new provincial sales-tax legislation specifies vehicle gifts can only be given to a genuine relative or a registered charity. “Clearly, we’ve had a situation in British Columbia where there has been an enormous effort underway for the public to avoid paying tax owing when they sell vehicles,” Falcon said. “Either you accept that explanation or you just believe that people have become extraordinarily generous in British Columbia in giving

away their high-end vehicles, including Mercedes, Porsches and BMWs, to individuals who they are not acquainted with, but they are describing as friends or best friends or acquaintances.” Falcon estimated the tax dodge has been costing the B.C. treasury tens of millions of dollars each year. An effort last year to tighten up the gift process by replacing a letter declaring the vehicle is a gift with a detailed form for buyers and sellers didn’t relieve the problem, Falcon said. The B.C. sales tax on privately sold vehicles is called the “tax on designated property” it applies to aircraft and boats, as well as cars and trucks.

LOCAL VIEWS

Of delusions and hallucinations

W

HAT IS the difference between delusions and hallucinations? Today’s question — and topic — comes from a high school student and both of these situations are commonly misunderstood in the general public, largely because we tend to get our information about mental illness from movies and television crime dramas. No, these are not reliable sources of information nor, more importantly, sources of understanding about mental illness or conditions often found in mentally ill people. At the risk of oversimplifying these conditions, a hallucination is an event in which one or more of a person’s senses receive information not experienced by others. A person hears voices, sees a person or object that is not really there, feels the sensations of something touching them or smells odours that others cannot detect. That is different from just seeing something that is not there, such as a mirage, because a mirage can be seen by an entire group of people, yet it’s still not there. In the most general terms, a delusion is not so much related to our sensory awareness, but to our belief system. A person who is delusional will hold a very strong conviction about something even in the face of strong evidence that belief is untrue. If you are convinced a supermodel you have never met is in love with you, then you are likely delusional. With both hallucinations and delusions, the “reality” being perceived by a person experiencing them is convincing and very real. It is not a rational belief as trying to convince or prove a delusional or hallucinating person is wrong never works.

If you think about it, you also may be like that about anything about which you believe strongly. People who hold strong beliefs about their favourite political party or religion are not easily swayed with argument, either. When we ask a person who is hallucinating or who is delusional to just take our word that they cannot see, hear, taste or touch the thing they say is there, or that their belief is completely out to lunch and that no one else believes it, we are asking that person to ignore their own experience or senses. Ignoring our senses can be deadly, so survival instincts alone make it very difficult for someone to simply

agree they are not experiencing reality. What can you do to assist someone who is experiencing hallucinations or delusions? Find out more about what the person is experiencing. Often, people who experience these symptoms can be paranoid — and that makes your motives and actions appear highly suspicious or dangerous to the person you may be trying to help. They might lash out in you in self-defence with the firm belief you are trying to do them harm, rather than help them. Keep a respectful safe distance, remain calm, do not try to convince people their delusions or hallucinations

are wrong and arrange for an appropriate response from paramedics. If it appears a person is capable of self-harm or harming others because of the nature of their hallucinations or delusions, police should also be called. Some hallucinations and delusions are side effects of drug or alcohol use or withdrawal from a substance. Never approach someone in crisis, with the belief your calmness, your personality or your reassurance will be enough to settle someone down. Rather, stay safe and call for help. Their experience is irrational, but very, very real to them. You can learn more about how to deal with this or other mentalhealth crisis situations in our two-day mentalhealth first-aid course. Even if you know

how to respond to a bad cut or how to help someone who has stopped breathing, most people freeze when they witness a person in a mental-illness crisis. Mental-health first aid can help, so contact us for more information about this course.

‘HAMER’ HAMER-JACKSON

MARION JEAN FAURHOLT

January 6, 1935 – June 1, 2012

(nee McMILLAN)

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, Dad, Papa and Great Grandpa.

It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Jean Faurholt on May 31, 2012 at home with loved ones by her side.

Hamer was born in Vancouver, BC to Vi and Roland Chasney. After the passing of his father at the age of 4 years old, his mother remarried a short time later and Dad was consequently adopted by Roy Hamer-Jackson.

She is survived by her daughters JoAnn Koester (Jim), Sandy Sirianni (Ralph), Cindy Davidson (Paul), grandchildren Brett Koester (Shelley), Danett Koester (Brian), Ryan Sirianni (Brooke), Melissa Sirianni (Troy), Kaitlyn Davidson (Brandon) and Wesley Davidson; greatgrandchildren Tyanne Koester, Mia Lust, Bronwyn Koester, Danilo Sirianni, Danika Sirianni ... and one more on the way. Also survived by sister Rowna Weys (Fred), brothers John McMillan and Bernard McMillan (Georgina), sisters-in-law Winnie McMillan and Winnie Faurholt. Predeceased by her loving husband of 62 years John Faurholt on March 4 2012, sister Lynn, brothers Ted and Kenneth.

He spent all of his years growing up in North Vancouver where he attended school at North Star Elementary, Kingsley Private School and North Van High. Dad had a wide variety of jobs, was never without work and as he would say, “There is no replacement for W-O-R-K”. After courting Mom for 5 years Dad proposed and lucky for him, she accepted. They were married in 1956 and spent a colourful, happy life together for over 56 years. They welcomed their first child, Vicki, into the world in 1957, next a son, Reid in 1958, then Randy in 1959, Lorne in 1961, Loni in 1962 and then after a 3 year break had their 6th child, Calvin in 1965. To care for his family Dad worked 2 jobs driving for BC Electric Bus as well as driving taxi for North Shore Taxi which he later purchased his own fleet and ran a successful business until deciding to move his family to the interior. Dad along with a partner purchased the Central Hotel in Kamloops in 1972 until 1980. He then took his Real Estate course and began selling Real Estate in 1981, a career that he had a true passion for. Through this he created many friendships with his charismatic personality and strong work ethic. As his advertising slogan said, “He Loved to Sell Real Estate”! In 1989, Mom and Dad purchased their dream property at Reedman’s Point on Shuswap Lake. In 1996, they had son Randy build their dream home in order to accommodate their growing family and find a peaceful place to retire to. We all loved the many summer days we spent tubing on the lake and laying on the wharf as well as the hours spent in Dad’s Boat House reminiscing and creating years of memories. Christmas was always a special occasion for Dad and he spent days stringing up hundreds of multi coloured lights around the property. In 2007 Mom and Dad made the decision to move back into Kamloops to be closer to health care, which Dad needed on a regular basis due to his heart condition. Dad was a big believer in working hard but playing even harder, so with that, he and Mom spent many years travelling to various parts of the world, enjoying life to the fullest. Dad was so proud of his family and loved our Sunday Night dinners to share in all our stories. We will miss him dearly every day and every moment and will always leave his place setting at the table. Hamer is survived by his devoted wife Diane; daughter Vicki (Wayne); son Reid (Lori); son Randy (Leandra); son Lorne (Fran); daughter Loni (Cliff); son Calvin (Karen); grandchildren: Tina (Todd), Dustin, Dallas (Kevin), Karlee, Kale, Ashley, Hailey, Tyrell, Melissa, Kayla, Amanda, Spencer, Brooke, Tanner, Jaclyn, Courtney, Taylor, Jordann and Rylee; great grandchildren: Bailey, Matthew, Mikayla and Hudson; as well as his brother Ron HamerJackson (Victoria) and many other extended relatives. He was predeceased by his dad Roland; mother Vi; grandchildren Nikki and Colton; and uncle Ted. The family cannot express enough gratitude to Dr. Jacobus Steyn and his assistant Sheila for their excellent care and commitment to Dads health, and we truly believe that you provided us extra time to have Dad in our lives. Also to Dr. Terry Simpson, Dr. Lennard Pretorius, all of the Care Teams on 7 North at RIH, and the many ‘angels’ that attended to Dad in the emergency ward over the years. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, June 9th, 2012 at 1:00pm at the Calvary Community Church – 1205 Rogers Way, Kamloops, BC. The family would also like you to join them for a reception at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre – 1250 Rogers Way, Kamloops following the Celebration. Should friends desire, donations to the Royal Inland Hospital, the Heart and Stroke Foundation, or BC Children’s Hospital in memory of Hamer would be appreciated.

Jean was born in Kamloops, BC on September 22, 1929 and worked for BC Telephone for 38 years. She was a member of the Telephone Pioneers for a number of years. Jean was always putting others first, and was the first to offer help in any way she could. Jean had something on the go at all times, whether it be a quilt, afghan or a special project for someone. There were many a fortunate person who received one of her special gifts. Jean suffered a stroke in 1995 and lost the use of her right side of her body. She learned to be left-handed very quickly and that didn’t stop her from her many projects, even up to the time of her passing she was working on a quilt. Mom would like nothing better than having someone stop in and have a visit. The grandkids and great-grandkids were fortunate to know her; they made her day whenever they came around or called. I think if Mom could have had them first, she would have. Mom and Dad travelled to Alaska two years ago for their 60th Anniversary, which was enjoyed by their three daughters and their spouses. The picture of her was taken with her 2-week-old great-granddaughter Danika, who she sang to just two weeks before she passed. A very special thank you to Dr. Bill Stinson and staff, support staff from Interior Health and a very special thank you to Gail, who was always there for the family. To the the palliative care doctors and hospice, thank you. To know her was to love her and we were very fortunate to have her in our lives. Donations can be made to the Canadian Cancer Society or Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home.

ROGER JAMES MATKOVICH April 12, 1938 ~ May, 24 2012

It is with immense sadness that we announce the passing of Roger James Matkovich on May 24th, 2012 at 74 years of age. Roger lost his fight with cancer surrounded by his loving family. He is lovingly remembered by his wife of 50 years, Gloria, son Glen (Lena), brothers Gary (Lucille), Gerald (Bev), sister Wendy (Ron), granddaughter Tyanna (Phil) as well as three nieces and five nephews.

Mom,

Roger was predeceased by his parents, Helen and Wencel.

Sometimes I feel you so close I can feel your touch, see your smile, smell your perfume, hear your voice. At times I think you’re out shopping or maybe you’re on an outing with the Renaissance bus. You loved your music and I shed tears remembering music was a great part of your life.

Roger was a devoted husband and friend. He will be remembered for his witty sense of humor and willingness to always help others. Roger spent 42 years in the trucking industry, mostly hauling heavy equipment for Robo Transport and Darlen Transport. Roger always said he was like Hank Snow, “I’ve been everywhere, man.” When he wasn’t trucking he was hooked up to his trailer and off camping or exploring the country. Roger will always be loved and missed by all who knew him.

It’s been a year since you have left us, but it feels so long. The pain of not having your hugs and kisses is so great. I miss hearing your answering machine saying “I’m not able to get to the phone right now, but if it’s one of my kids, I love you to bits!” Moms, it’s the memories I cherish and also to know you’re in Heaven with Jesus, waiting for us. Love you greatly, Your kids

A Tea to honor Roger will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home on Saturday, June 9, 2012, at 2:00pm. A special thank you to all the ladies at the Kamloops Hospice House, Dr. Van Heerden and Ardith. Memorial donations in Roger’s memory may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Cr. S, Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9, if friends so desire.

The Angel On Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

Remembering Mom with a smile today And smiling through my tears ReÁecting on the many memories Of all those happy years. Recalling to mind the way she spoke And all the things she said Her strength, her stance, the way she walked Remember these instead. The good advice she gave to us Her eyes that shone with laughter So much of Mom that never dies Mom lives on, ever after. Mom was a woman of integrity and pride Important, then, the way she lived Not the way she died. If a tear should fall today Perhaps it shall be shed For the many years without mom here That still lie ahead. Miss you so much Mom and love you more Your daughter “ Melrose”

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder.

Munro siblings set for motocross nationals By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE MUNROS are hoping to make some noise this weekend at Whispering Pines Raceway. Both Jamie, 17, and her brother Kody, 14, will be in action at the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals, held Saturday, June 9, and Sunday, June 10, at the Westsyde Road track. “My goal is to try and win every one of my classes, have fun and go to intermediate next year,” said Kody, who, along with his sister, will be racing in the amateur portion of the event in the junior division on Sunday. The professionals will take to the track on Saturday. Races get underway at 10 a.m. each day and tickets can be bought at the gate. Performing well this year at the western stops on the Nationals series will help Kody achieve his goal of moving from the junior division to the intermediate ranks. He placed first in the MX2 race and third in the MX3 race last weekend at the first stop of the series in Nanaimo. British Columbia Motocross Association

Jamie and Kody Munro are ready to tear up the track during the Monster Energy Motocross Nationals series stop at Whispering Pines Raceway in Kamloops. Dave Eagles/KTW

and Canadian Motorsport Racing Corporation officials will be watching Kody throughout the Nationals races and at the Western Canadian Amateur Motorsports Championships (WCAMC), held from June 27 to June 30 in Raymond, Alta. Should he get the nod to move into the intermediate division

next season, he will be one step closer to his ultimate dream of competing professionally. “I’d definitely want to go down to the States as a professional rider and try to win the AMA championship,” said Kody, a Sa-Hali secondary student. After Kamloops this weekend, the western series moves to Calgary on June 17 and June 18

before wrapping up in Edmonton on June 23 and June 24. Other local riders competing on the weekend include Greg Small, Brock Hoyer (Williams Lake) and Jaromir Romancik. Jamie, who attends Valleyview secondary, will be competing for points that go toward the overall western series ladies’ title.

There is no cash prize for finishing atop the standings, but there is plenty of pride on the line. “It’s pretty much just for bragging rights,” said Jamie, noting she is gunning for a top-five finish on the women’s circuit. “As a lady, it would be awesome to race in the States but, right now, there is no such

thing as a pro lady. “To be known as one of the fastest ladies in Canada would be pretty awesome.” Jamie will also be competing at the WCAMC, widely considered the most important event for amateur Western Canadian motocross riders. The Munros will have an advantage over their competitors before

Stick-swingin’ Geroy Simon

Light rain won’t keep Geroy Simon from hitting the links in Kamloops. No. 81 is looking forward to spending a day off from training camp on the course. KTW file photo

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Geroy Simon is always on the hunt for a new golf experience, as long as it’s not pouring rain out. “I was just thinking I need to get my golf clubs out,” the B.C. Lions’ wide receiver told KTW during another damp-but-not-drenched day of training camp at Hillside Stadium on Wednesday, June 6. “I’d easily golf in this weather, no problem.” The Lions brought the wet stuff with them from the coast, but a little bit of drizzle won’t stop No. 81 and his teammates from hitting the links. “We have a good group of guys that get out,” Simon said. “We’re always looking for good courses.” The Lions’ wideout has played both The Dunes at Kamloops and Tobiano Golf Course since B.C. brought train-

ing camp back to the River City in 2010. Kicker Paul McCallum, wide receiver Marco Iannuzzi and quarterbacks Travis Lulay and Mike Reilly are among the Lions’ best golfers. Simon, who pegged himself as a 12 or 13 handicap, said he might just be the best of the bunch. “I pretty much can beat them all,” said Simon, who led the Lions in catches, 84, and receiving yards, 1,350, last season. “Paul and me kind of battle, but he’s taken a bit of time off golf, and that’s the only reason I’ve been beating him

the last few years.” Simon has played courses across the U.S. and Mexico, but hasn’t yet ventured overseas to swing the sticks. He said playing tracks like St. Andrews in Scotland is on his to-do list, but Simon will

likely have to finish his football career before heading to the home of golf. “I’m still new to the game, a golf baby, but, as I get a little older, I’ll be moving around a little more,” he said. The proven catcher of the long ball, now an aspiring hitter of the long ball, plans to test more of Kamloops’ golf terrain in the near future. “I’m looking forward to a day off, so I can get out and play,” Simon said. “As long as it’s not raining on us, and it usually doesn’t rain here.”

Has tennis girlfriend sidetracked Rory?

I

T’S NOT A shock to say Rory McIlroy has a lot in common with Tiger Woods. But, some of those similarities aren’t the kind McIlroy’s fans want to see. They like the part about being No. 1 in the world. They like the title of defending U.S. Open champ. They like the millions of dollars he makes on and off the golf course. They like the fact he’s likely the most popular golfer in the world, as Tiger once was. What similarity to Woods that McIlroy fans aren’t too keen about is the one about his career being sidetracked by women. The jury is still out on that one, but . . . Woods’s fall from grace has been well chronicled — his dalliances with dozens of women cost him his wife, his reputation and, coincidentally or not, his golf game for a couple of years. McIlroy, as far as we know, is a one-woman man, but his romantic relationship with tennis star Caroline Wozniacki is the reason, some say, that the Northern Ireland superstar is falling into pro golf’s ordinary atmosphere. Golf’s superstar ped-

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW estal, once the domain of Woods, is currently unoccupied. When he was 22, McIlroy led the 2011 Masters through three rounds before imploding on the back nine Sunday and finishing 15th. But, he rebounded beautifully, winning his next major, the U.S. Open, by a remarkable eight strokes. McIlroy’s life was perfect — and he had the gorgeous No. 1-ranked Wozniacki on his arm as he ascended to the No. 1 spot in the world ranking. He was a rock star. Would Tiger catch Nicklaus with 18 majors? To heck with that hypothesis . . . would Rory win 20? Lately, though, McIlroy has faltered badly. He missed the cut at the Players Championship in May — and then immediately jetted to Rome to watch his girlfriend play in a tournament. He missed the cut later that month at the BMW Championship

in England — and then zipped over to Paris to see Caroline. He missed the cut at the Memorial, one of two U.S. Open tuneups he put on his schedule. Maybe it’s Caroline’s fault; maybe it’s not. Maybe it’s just because McIlroy is 23 and is enjoying the rock-star life for the first time. Maybe marriage and maturity will eventually reign and McIlroy will eventually wear the superstar tag. Some answers may be forthcoming next week at the U.S. Open in San Francisco. He’ll be taking on 155 other golfers in the field, not to mention millions of critics.

The Kamloops Heat were not exactly smouldering on McArthur Island on Sunday, June 3. After conceding two first-half goals, Kamloops (1-2-1) went on to drop a 3-0 decision to the Vancouver Thunderbirds in women’s premier Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) play. “[The] bottom line is we were not very good today,” Heat head coach

Kelly Shantz said. “We were not as mentally focused or physically ready to play today as we have been all year. “I think the girls are learning this the hard way and are ready to make changes to improve.” The Heat are in action next against the PCSL Vancouver Whitecaps women at Hillside Stadium on Saturday, June 16.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

The art of time

Earle definitely satisfies By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

E

VERY SO OFTEN, you’ll head to a concert expecting to experience something amazing — and then be stunned at how much your expectations were wrong. I knew a solo acoustic show by Steve Earle would be great, but had no idea how fantastic it really would be. The reason is simple. Earle doesn’t need flash, a light show or any of the affectations you see in a lot of musicians these days. He needs a microphone, his many musical instruments and, his most powerful tool of all, his amazing songs. In his brown chinos and a plaid shirt, Earle — a man who has captured the everyman image in so many of his works — looked like any ordinary guy when he walked out on the Sagebrush Theatre stage on Monday, June 4. No opening act, no backing band — although he did note it’s one of the few times he’s performed without his wife, Allison Moorer — just a man who has been nominated 14 times for Grammy awards and won three. A man now up for album and song of the year from the American Music Association. A man who may be

Steve Earle performed to a sold-out audience on Monday, June 4.

as well known for his political stances as he is for his music. In fact, it led to one comical moment as he explained to the soldout audience one of the instruments he was playing was a bouzouki. “That’s not what we call it when we go through the airport security,” he told the crowd. “Especially in my country. “Especially if you’re me.” It was that kind of banter, the homey, selfdeprecating, occasionally militant (at least when he referenced George Dubya, for example), but perfect for the crowd. The two hours included such vintage classics as City of Immigrants, I Ain’t Ever Satisfied, Jerusalem, The Galway Girl and Devil’s Right Hand — a song that led to one of

the longer, more personal stories. Before launching into what he called a gun-control song, he told of how, less than five months sober and out of jail, he ended up living with his teenage son in a trailer filled with guns. “I didn’t see at the time the problem with being a peacenik living in a trailer full of guns,” he said. His son took a gun and refused to tell him where it was, leading Earle to decide to take his boy to one of those wilderness camps for wayward teens. “It’s not easy parenting when you’re just four-and-a-half months sober,” Earle said of his decision. “They slept in tents. Now, it was January. I got a call at 4:30 the following morning from him telling me where

the gun was. “So, this is a guncontrol song,” Concerts at Sagebrush tend to have a code of etiquette, with people applauding, sometimes clapping along This time, it was more raucous, more like a big family barbecue where the favourite uncle has taken the stage. It was intimate, personal, fun, amazing and, when he launched into perhaps the one song most people know from his discography — Copperhead Road — deeply satisfying. The crowd didn’t just give Earle a standing ovation. It roared, it screamed, it cheered not so much for the encore everyone always does but because everyone there knew they had witnessed something special.

TRAVEL

Festivals and family fun on Cortes Island leave our oceanfront retreat, our temporary family is soon combing the beach for agates, turning over rocks in search of life, and gathering wood for a large group of young locals who have invited us to share their fire. The sun goes down in orange splendour, accompanied by guitar strumming and punctuated by charred marshmallows.

KLAHOOSE ELDER TENDS HUNKS OF SIZZLING SALMON, SLOWLY ACHIEVING PERFECTION OVER AN OPEN BEACH FIRE. A growing lineup snakes down from the vendors’ stalls and the tables, where cooks reign supreme, their cuisine’s redolent aromas twisting through the amazingly patient queue. Locals know there will be lots to go around, but our hungry niece and nephew aren’t so certain. They need distraction and, fortunately, there’s lots of that. My partner, David, leads them over to a somber youth dressed totally in black, who, on cue, rises solemnly from his box perch and begins meticulously to twist a rainbow spectrum of balloons into fantastic animals. Kristen ScholfieldSweet is this year’s organizer. “This originally started about 20 years ago as a fundraising event to create public awareness and support for stopping the toxic discharge from area pulp mills into our local waters,” she says. “John and I are oyster growers. Our way of farming the sea is dying. We love what we do and want to share not just the good food we grow, but our island way of life. Her partner, John Shook, adds: “The main reason for having a shellfish festival is to bring the growers and the larger community closer together.” The locals behind us cheerfully make room for the return of David, both children and their balloon pets and, soon, we’re eyeball-to-eyeball with the oysters, cooked five ways, from Oyster Rockefeller to Mexicanstyle Pico de Gallo. There are more than oysters to slurp, too: Creamy clam chowder,

Early Monday morning, we roll home, pronouncing the weekend perfect.

If you go: • B.C. Ferries: For schedules, go to bcferries.com. Reservations are recommended. • Where to Stay: Huckleberry Cottage is perfect for small families, or stay at Cedar Moon Beachfront Cottage (cedar-moon.

com). • Hollyhock Retreat Centre is located on Cortes, so be sure to check its website for events. Its buffet lunch and dinners are also open to the public (hollyhock.ca). • Don’t forget you need a licence to harvest oysters. Buy it online at discoverfishingbc.ca/buyalicence or at the Squirrel Cove General Store.

steamed mussels and prawns in a sweet red chili sauce, accompanied with rolls and salad also await. Folk guitar and vocalist entertainment by Andy Vine and his wife add to the festival’s atmosphere. Is that Brian Robertson’s When the tide goes out, the table is set I’m hearing? How appropriate. Most families might think twice before tackling remote Cortes Island on the May long weekend. From the Lower Mainland, that’s three ferry trips, as well as a 284-kilometre drive up Vancouver Island from Sidney to the Quadra ferry terminal at Campbell River, or 153 kilometres from Nanaimo — but, lured by rumours of a succulent seafood festival secreted away on this oyster-fringed Discovery Island, we had to go. Scooping up my brother’s seafoodaddicted children, we chanced it and were well rewarded. If you love seafood, especially oysters, follow our oyster shells. Held on the Saturday of the Victoria Day weekend, the festival usually hums late into the evening, with ale and poetry at the Cove, the popular nearby cafe, but, with 10- and 12-year-olds to entertain, we have other fish to fry. We’re meeting the amiable Lynne Jordan at low tide at Manson’s Lagoon. A local resident who used to work at the

Vancouver Aquarium, she volunteers to give guided tours of the lagoon, in return for donations to the local museum — money well spent. What she knows keeps us enthralled for hours. We hunt for moon snails, watch a feeding frenzy of local critters, study clams and eat seaweed. Give her a call at the museum (250-9356340.) Returning to our halcyon waterfront cottage, with the forest breathing behind us and the sea and mountains of Desolation Sound stretching ahead, we learn our hosts, Sandra

and Philip Wood, have kayaks to offer. On Sunday, we opt to watch a little of the Ultimate Frisbee Tournament at the local school, laughing at the contestants’ wild outfits and antics. Later, an excellent, nearby skateboard park provides an hour of fun for our charges, both of whom, having heard about Cortes’s park, have hauled along their boards and helmets. While David and I nervously watch, they chug, roll and fly with the locals. That night, our last, we head down to Smelt Bay to see the muchlauded sunset. Initially reluctant to

Interior Whitewater Expeditions (IWE) has been accepted into the Canadian Tourism Commission’s prestigious Signature Experiences Collection.

GLOBAL VIEWS

Why did they do it?

W

HAT IF China, flush with its new wealth, opened its doors to mass immigration? It would make sense from an economic and social point of view, because its one-child-perfamily policy has produced a young generation far smaller than the one that now does most of the work. China’s average age is rising faster than any other country in history and it could certainly do with more young people. If it had an immigration policy like that of the United States, it could fill all the gaping holes in the workforce that will open when the present adult generation retires — and there would be enough people working and paying taxes to support that older generation in its golden years. Otherwise, there will be barely one worker for each retiree and their post-retirement years will be far from golden. So, let’s suppose China opens the gates. The immigrants would come from all over the world. Probably most would be from south and southeast Asia (India, Pakistan, Burma, Indonesia, the Philippines), but plenty of Russians would come, too.

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH So would Arabs from the slums of Cairo and Congolese from the slums of Kinshasa and Mexicans fleeing the bloody war on drugs. There would be young Europeans fleeing the 25-to-50 per cent youth unemployment rates of Spain, Italy and Greece. Some Americans would also come, like former automobile workers from Rust Belt states, hoping their skills would find employment in what is now the world’s biggest car-maker. China’s politics wouldn’t deter them — they have already tried being free and poor and some of them would be willing to trade. They would all come and China would be transformed. In 50 or 60 years, it would be one of the world’s most diverse societies. Almost all the new immigrants would learn to speak some Chinese,

of course, but their children would be fluent in the language. Indeed, they would think of themselves as Chinese, even though their skins were white, brown or black and their religions Muslim, Christian, Buddhist or Hindu. I know, it’s never going to happen because the Chinese would never let it happen. But, that’s precisely the point. The Americans have let it happen. Why? I’m not saying it is a bad thing. Personally, I like it. But, it is an extraordinary thing. Sixty years ago, the U.S. was a country whose population was overwhelmingly of white European descent. The only really big minority was the black and mixed-race descendants of African slaves, who accounted for about oneeighth of the population. Then the United States opened the gates very wide. Last month, the U.S. Census Bureau revealed non-white births in the country narrowly exceeded the number of births to white Americans for the first time. There are some curious kinks in the statistics, such as the fact Spanish-speaking whites are not counted as white, but the message is clear:

The next adult generation in the U.S. will not be majority white. So, why did the last two generations of Americans, who were still mostly of European descent, let it happen? Did they welcome and encourage it as a good thing for the country’s future? Or were they just asleep at the wheel? Some Americans certainly did encourage it, arguing that turning the United States into a microcosm of the whole world was fulfilling its destiny and that the sheer diversity of its future population would give it a huge competitive advantage in the world. But, there were not many people who made that argument, and there is actually little evidence to show that ethnic diversity makes a country more competitive. Maybe the last two generations of Americans were a lot less racist than many people — including many Americans — thought. Or, perhaps they were all silently aware that only five hundred years ago, none of the births in North America were white.

FAITH

Learning from a powerful ex-con

C

HARLES COLSON, THE HATCHET MAN OF NIXON’S INFAMOUS WATERGATE SCANDAL, DIED ON APRIL

21. More than becoming a prisoner at the height of his worldwide influence, he would perhaps be best remembered as a converted ex-con for Christ who went on to found the largest prison ministry, Prison Fellowship, again with a NARAYAN MITRA worldwide influence. You Gotta Have Among those FAITH who left indelible marks on his born-again life were larger-than-life heroes of faith in the persons of William Wilberforce, Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Abraham Kuyper and, perhaps to a lesser extent, Francis Schaeffer. These and other Christian reformers set a pathway which, in his middle and later life, Colson was only too glad to tread, following his fall from height of power.

He demonstrated that only a reform backed by the power of the Spirit of God would change lives in and outside the prisons permanently, requiring no (or very little) remission to pre-convicted lives. In his incessant fight for the real truth, which is convincingly found only in Jesus, Colson spent his even-more- hectic postWhite House years to vindicate the biblical message. “Some say today that the church should take a sabbatical from speaking to the culture at large,” wrote Colson in one of his columns. “That would be a grave mistake. The alternative to winsomely engaging the culture isn’t blissful withdrawal: it is further subjugation to . . . the dictatorship of relativism.” The gift of a sharp intellect that he was endowed with, coupled with being a stickler of a post-conversion pungent morality, reminds many of another changed slave of God in the person of King Solomon. The Old Testament hero made tremendous good use of rightness of God’s wisdom, freely available to those who ask for it, in hundreds of his simple but profoundly life-changing proverbs. Following one of his puzzling sayings, “Wisdom is more precious than rubies, and

nothing you desire can compare with her,” Solomon expounded the rightness of wisdom as a way of life. It contrasts starkly with the life of wickedness as shown all through his proverbs. Those who had found the true way of life testify to the difference between them. This means that, when a person takes God’s wisdom as his own way of life, it will characterize what is wholesome and good in him. This is what Jesus promised when He said He had come to give people life — and that meant a more abundant life. He is the embodiment of wisdom and truth. This is an all-important fact to remember when we realize that a message based on falsehood, lies and error, as Watergate signalled, is deadly and of no value at all. At the same time, a message based on truth does little good if no one hears it. Upon repenting of his devious ways, Colson made sure people heard and saw the other message through his ministries and oratory. Solomon compared wisdom to valuable material things, but there is really no comparison. Colson’s earlier life testifies that the power and the prestige of the White House

was not enough prophylactic to his fall from grace. Both the Old and the New Testament ring with the message of forgiveness, salvation, and hope. Apostle Peter could well draw back from Solomon’s and Colson’s past when he assured his readers: “The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” So have done Colson, John Newton (the slave trader) and millions of others from their moral perversion. God’s wisdom puts danger signs all around us. The prudent thing to do is to proceed with caution. In his later years, Schaeffer taught Colson how to swim against the current, contra mundum (against the world), as he puts it. “But, Schaeffer swam against the world in order to be for the world, the world God made and for which Christ died,” wrote Colson just before he passed away. Like Colson’s earthly heroes, we too can hardly celebrate his legacy in any other way. narayanmitra@hotmail.com
