South Kam’s BUCKET brigade By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A South Kamloops secondary school teacher has launched an innovative composting program aimed at getting students to be green — and he hopes to see the initiative spread across the district. Every school day for the last month-and-ahalf, Stu Wormsbecker’s fourth-period class has walked South Kam’s halls armed with buckets, gathering the contents of a handful of composting stations positioned throughout campus. The students take the composting material out to a pair of black steel drums — emblazoned with the South Kamloops secondary logo, of course — and let Mother Nature do the rest. “This is our sixth week and we’ve pretty much filled up almost two of these barrels already,” Wormsbecker told KTW, noting students collect an average of 10 pounds per day. “We’ve been working hard on it,” he said. “I’ve been teaching environmental ideas for a long time and I want

to see it put into action more. Learning through doing is a great thing.” The project — Wormsbecker calls it “Being Seen Being Green” — has operated on a shoestring budget. The buckets used to collect composting material and haul it out to the compost drums used to belong to the City of Kamloops, which used them at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. The drums were made by students in a South Kamloops secondary shop class. Wormsbecker said he spread the word about the program at a teachers’ in-service day in May and received a good response. “Now we’ve got six [composting bins] on back order in the metal shop,” he said. “Look at what we can do with zero dollars. Imagine if I got funding.” That, Wormsbecker said, is the goal — for the composting program to be adopted as a district-wide policy, and funded. “More and more people are starting to think we can do things differently,” he said. “And, we can.”

Life at Georgian Court a gas for one parolee A Kamloops parolee who beat up two other residents of a half-way house after someone farted in his face will spend the next six months in jail. Gary Trainor pleaded guilty on Wednesday, June 13, in Kamloops provincial court to two counts of assault, each dating back to February. The 53-year-old, who has

been designated a long-term offender, had been living at Georgian Court, in the 400block of Fortune Drive in North Kamloops, since last spring. Court heard that, in February, parolees at the facility had gathered in the kitchen to make homemade pizza. Tensions escalated between

Trainor and other residents, dating back to earlier “rudeness” perpetrated against him. Defence lawyer Frank Caputo said Trainor’s hostility dated back to an incident in the Georgian Court smoking area. “Someone passed gas in his face,” he said. Trainor was handed a sixmonth jail sentence.

Cats were killed by natural predator A pair of recent Kamloops cat killings believed to have been suspicious are likely the work of a natural predator, according to an expert brought in to help solve a rash of similar finds in the Lower Mainland. Melinda Merck, an Atlantabased forensic veterinary expert, reviewed evidence from both Kamloops discover-

ies — one in Valleyview and the other in Aberdeen. “Dr. Merck viewed photographs of the cats and the placement of the cat and, based on her expertise, she determined it was likely a predator,” said Marcie Moriarty, the BCSPCA’s general manager of cruelty investigations. Merck also determined

a rash of mutilated animal corpses — 20 cats, eight crows, one rabbit and one dog — discovered in recent weeks in Maple Ridge and Langley were also likely the work of natural predators. It was believed the cats had been killed by a person as the mutilated bodies of the animals gave the appearance of having been cut in half.

Dreamlift Day pioneer sells John Tietzen parts ways with Wendy’s franchises By Wade Paterson KELOWNA CAPITAL NEWS

wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

John Tietzen is parting ways with Wendy’s restaurants in Kamloops, Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kelowna, West Kelowna and Penticton. But, Dreamlift Day isn’t going anywhere. Tietzen has announced his decision to sell the franchises. “I just need a new challenge,” said Tietzen. “I’ve been in the foodservice industry since I was 15; it was my 24th year with Wendy’s in the Southern Interior.” Tietzen began thinking about selling the franchises last year; however, he wanted to stick around until the Wendy’s Dreamlift Day fundraiser, which he started in 1995, surpassed the $1-million mark. “Ten years ago, we set ourselves a goal of getting to $1 million. We wanted to reach that goal—that was really big for me.” Stepping into the former owner’s shoes is Ken Park, a man Tietzen is confident will be able to carry on his legacy. “He’s from Grande Prairie. He’s a very successful franchisee. He’s got four stores in Alberta. With this purchase, he will become the largest franchisee for Wendy’s in Canada,” Tietzen said. “I’m pretty comfortable because Ken wants to keep our legacies. He paid to keep the name Inland Restaurants. “In our office, we have a lot of historical

pictures — he wants copies of all of those to be kept on the wall. He’s keeping all the staff, managers, regional office staff and area partners. The only person that’s leaving is me. “I think he’s very respectful of what we’ve built here and who we are.” Most importantly, Park has promised to keep Wendy’s Dreamlift Day going. Park has even done his homework to ensure he knows what kind of promise he is making. “He came up here last year undercover and experienced Dreamlift himself without telling anybody,” Tietzen said. “He knows what it’s all about. “I think because of that I have a lot more confidence that Dreamlift Day will be successful and still grow every year.” Tietzen’s long-term future is still unclear, but he will look to lend his assistance with Wendy’s Dreamlift Days in the future.

“I hope that they will include me. Even if I’ve got to go clean tables that day, I would still like to be involved in some fashion.” Nancy Sutherland, national executive director of the Sunshine Foundation of Canada, said the way Tietzen managed to get com-

munities involved in the Dreamlift initiative has been “wonderful.” The Sunshine Foundation of Canada honoured Tietzen last November by awarding him with the Spirit of Service Award in recognition of his commitment and connection to the foundation’s cause.

If the Kamloops RCMP constables shot dead in Peterson Creek in 1962 were still alive today, the three men would be in their 70s. But, in the memories of the widows of Joe Keck, Donald Weisgerber and Gord Pedersen, the Mounties will forever remain young men. “When I think of Donald, I picture him how he was,” said Joan Turner, Weisgerber’s widow. “He would have been 73 this week but, then, he was 23.” Weisgerber was not scheduled to work on June 18, 1962. He was in the office finishing up some paperwork on his day off, about to go out for a round of golf. That’s when a call came in warning of a gun-toting man threatening provincial game wardens in downtown Kamloops. Keck and Pedersen were on shift and

responded — armed and in uniform. Weisgerber went along as backup, in plainclothes and unarmed. The trio of Mounties found the suspect — George Booth — heading on foot into Peterson Creek Park, armed with a rifle. Booth would not drop his weapon. When Pedersen attempted to cut him off, Booth opened fire and hit the 23-year-old constable twice. Pedersen returned fire, but was killed by Booth’s third shot. Keck began firing at Booth, who was by then posted up on a foot bridge running over Peterson Creek. One of the 28-yearold’s bullets hit the gunman in the stomach, causing him to drop his rifle. At that point, Weisgerber ran to grab Booth’s weapon. Booth regained control of the firearm and shot the unarmed Mountie three times, killing him as he

ran at Booth. Keck then attempted to peek out from under the bridge Booth was on to get a better shot. When he did, he was shot in the head and killed. Booth was killed hours later in a shootout with police, who had conducted a massive manhunt in the Peterson Creek Park area following the shooting spree. Turner, who was present alongside the widows of Keck and Pedersen at a memorial service in Kamloops on Monday, June 18, to mark the 50th anniversary of the shootings, said the wounds are still fresh five decades later. “It always seems like yesterday,” she said. “I’d gotten up and gone to work and he was going to go golfing. “You can’t imagine it would be something like that would happen to you. “It just seemed so unreal.” XSee WIDOW A7

` Dear interested public,

KGHM Ajax Mining Inc. is committed to assessing, addressing and monitoring the environmental and social effects of its proposed Ajax Copper-Gold Project. In accordance with our Public Consultation Plan, we will continue to hold a series of community workshops. The purpose of these workshops is to provide specific project-related information to community members based on area of concern and to actively engage community members in the assessment process and project design. Workshop Details:

Widow: ‘It’s important we don’t forget’ XFrom A6

Ann Boyd, who was married to Keck and five months pregnant with the couple’s second child the day of the shooting, said the ceremony stirred up old emotions. “It brings it all back again,” she said. “It seems like it was today.” Boyd described Keck as a dedicated Mountie — one who wasn’t supposed to be working on June 18, 1962, but had taken a shift for a coworker. “He was a really good policeman,” she said. “He loved his work, he loved being a policeman and he loved being a dad.” Betty Barr was married to Pedersen and she wore to yesterday’s service an RCMP medal given to her to commemorate his death. “It seems like just a couple of days

[ago] — I went to work and Gord went to work,” she said. Barr, 21 at the time, was working at the Bank of Nova Scotia. She said she was called into her manager’s office moments after spotting another Mountie’s wife enter the branch. Pedersen had been married just six weeks before his death. And, Barr didn’t know it at the time, but she was pregnant with the couple’s first child when her husband died. “I named him after his father — Gordon Eric,” she said. “I’ve got pictures, pictures of the funeral and everything. But, I didn’t let him know until he was ready.” Barr said she appreciated the anniversary ceremony. “Ceremonies like this bring everything to a head,” she said. “But, it’s important we don’t forget. “I don’t forget.”

Is it truly better to force suffering to the inevitable end?

I

T WAS 13 YEARS AGO tomorrow that my mom died, the cancer that invaded her lungs six months earlier finally prevailing over the entire body of the woman who helped create life for seven children. My mom was lucky in that she was able to spend all her remaining moments at home, in the townhouse purchased in 1970 and in which we were all raised. From her diagnosis in the fall of 1998 to her death in the spring of 1999, mom was almost the picture of bedridden contentment. Her weight had dropped alarmingly and she was barely mobile enough to make to the washroom and back. But, she was intensely lucid right up to a week before she died. She had her plush bed, her beloved books and magazines and a TV straight ahead when she tired of reading. She had her Boost energy drinks and a parade of visitors every day. She also had regular visits from a nurse and am IV drip right next to her bed, filled with pain medication so the final weeks and months would not be as painful as she feared. We never had to think about the unthinkable, about whether it would be better to hasten death rather than watch mom endure wracking pain waiting for the inevitable. As far as I could recall, even during the final week when mom fell into a sudden comatose state, the pain was never that severe. However, I have sat next to the beds of people in agony, people who

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS were dying and whose inevitable death was to be a relief to family and friends — and to the person on the bed, filled with unbearable pain. For those people, last week’s B.C. Supreme Court ruling on physicianassisted suicide is encouraging. I have never understood the logic in waiting for death to take a person while that person is being tortured by a disease. I have never understood why suggesting mercy killing draws such passionate objection. It is better to force the endurance of suffering than to end the pain and deliver the person to their destination sooner? How is that better? Sheila Tucker, the lawyer who represented those seeking to strike down the law banning physicianassisted suicide, referred during court proceedings to a number of experts in jurisdictions that have allowed such deaths. According to expert affidavits, none of the jurisdictions — not Oregon, not Switzerland, not the

Netherlands, not Belgium and not Washington state — have experienced a flurry of such deaths; nor has there been any indication that the legality of the practice has led to other vulnerable people being killed; nor have suicides in general risen in those jurisdictions. Those are the three main areas of concern put forward by those opposed to physician-assisted suicide, including Euthanasia Prevention Coalition of B.C., and the Christian Legal Fellowship. However, as was noted in Justice Lynn Smith’s decision, there exists in Canada the right of patients to refuse to be resuscitated in a hospital if they stop breathing or if their heart stops. That decision is made by the patient when they are fully capable of making such a decision and the legal standard governing the practice is informed consent, which is precisely what would be used in the cases of assisted suicide. The issue truly can be approached in a simple and clear manner — the person who wishes to be euthanized if their medical condition reaches an intolerable point for them must be the only person to make that decision, and that decision must be made well before the disease incapacitates them. There are also arguments from those who believe in God, who contend that assisted suicide is a form of man playing God. Based on that argument, one could counter that we are playing God from the moment we take an Aspirin to battle a headache. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com Twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

The real-estate industry can breathe a sigh of relief, as can many homeowners. The Bank of Canada said last week interest-rate increases aren’t likely any time soon, given the economic uncertainty in Europe and many challenging economic situations across the world. In that environment, an interestrate increase would cause more trouble. Nonetheless, homeowners with large mortgages would be wise to try to lock in low rates for as long as possible and, at the same time, do all they can to reduce their total debt. Interest rates will not stay this low forever, just as they didn’t stay at 20 per cent in the early 1980s. Those high rates had a lot to do with the last significant housing price correction in B.C. At that time, some people simply walked away from their homes. It was a situation very similar to that in many U.S. cities in the past four years. Here, the housing market has been very stable since the late 1980s. Prices fluctuated in the 1990s, but for the most part they have been on a steady upward trajectory. In recent years, prices in the Lower Mainland have jumped to levels where many people are having difficulty buying a home. This is particularly true of single-family homes. Only low interest rates have kept many people in the market. Interest rates also have other effects on retired people on fixed incomes. Low interest rates cut deeply into their purchasing power, as they are dependent on investment income for at least part of their income. A long period of low interest rates, as we have seen, can wreak havoc on pension plans. It all makes for many challenging situations. Saving is of limited benefit, but so is borrowing too much. The best approach is to keep expenses under control and pay close attention to interest rates.

James Gordon Kamloops

City seems to be saying it cares little for seniors Editor: Re: Kamloops Coun. Nancy Bepple’s letter of June 12 regarding user rates at Heritage House (‘New heritage house rates not onerous’): Instead of clarifying misunderstandings, Bepple’s letter only obscures the issue. Her busy calculator offers a hypothetical example showing the increase is around 10 cents per hour, per week, per member. That, I agree, hardly seems onerous. However, look at the larger picture with the following factual example. The Kamloops floor curlers, who meet 12 hours a week, will be facing a rental

increase of about $1,800 a year, based on 10 meeting months, with tax included. That number should have more clout than the one Bepple so carefully crafted. The increased rental hit to the floor curlers is 68 per cent. Ouch! Having been a treasurer of several charitable societies, I think this increase would be daunting for any non-profit club. The larger issue, though, is that the city, in moving to charge seniors’ groups at Heritage House the going city-rental rates, has effectively gutted any incentive for increased use of the sole civic facility dedicated to recreational use by our seniors.

TALK BACK

This should be troubling. Many governments and health authorities have identified social isolation of the elderly as an emerging and growing issue, one with huge costs to us all. With this rental hit — and with the recent rejection by city council of the Centre for Seniors Information request for a one-time start-up grant — is city council and administration demonstrating the issue of senior-citizen social isolation and the recreation/information needs of seniors are of little or no consequence? That seems to be the message. Frank Dwyer Kamloops

Animals — even geese and spiders — deserve our respect Editor: My thanks to KTW’s Dale Bass for bringing forth the issue of the harassment of geese in Kamloops parks (‘Stepping in when a brood of brats harasses a gaggle of geese’) and special thanks to the woman who attempted to intervene in the inhumane treatment she witnessed. I have also been witness to

incidents in which children have engaged in the abuse of animals in a public place. Whether it was firing water guns at geese on Paul Lake, chasing marmots on a local school ground or stomping on spiders at a day care, what disturbed me even more than the kids’ unthinking behaviour was the fact that, so often, adult onlookers (parents or otherwise)

have been willing to ignore or even shrug off such events. Worse yet, on those occasions when I have attempted to intervene, more often than not I have been regarded as the problematic person, making a fuss about what is deemed to be “innocent fun” or “child’s play.” I have even found myself the object of verbal abuse. Empathy for animals in

childhood is a necessary precursor to a humane society. As biologist Marc Bekoff suggests: “Animals are not property or ‘things,’ but rather living organisms, subjects of a life, who are worthy of our compassion, respect, friendship and support.” S. Leigh Matthews Kamloops

Mine support boggles the mind and breaks the heart Editor: As I read the letters to the editor of Kamloops This Week from proAjax mine members of our community, my mind boggles and my heart breaks.

God has given us one of the most beautiful cities in Canada in which to live and these people are anxious to give it away for 30 pieces of gold/ copper. Yes, I’m a Christian — so shoot

me. And, just bury me deep in the open-pit mine, along with all the others this travesty will kill, one way or another. Betsy Arnott Kamloops

Cavers reworks ban plan By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A rookie councillor’s plan to ban all cosmetic-pesticide use in the city has been toned down before it returns to the council table later this month. Donovan Cavers had tabled a notice of motion calling for a ban on all non-essential pesticide use within city limits. City staff would have led the way on the ban, phasing out pesticide use on municipal property by September. A new version of the motion handed out at council on June 12 instead calls for a ban on “the use of cosmetic pesticides on all lawns” within city limits and asks for a new list of “allowable, less-hazardous” pesticides to be developed. If it’s successful, the new measure would come into effect on Jan. 1, 2013. Cavers told KTW he didn’t think his original motion had enough support to make it past a council vote. “It’s better to have something than nothing,” he said of the reason he has pared down the motion for a ban.

Cavers said Coun. Tina Lange — who has told KTW in the past she favours a homeowner-based ban, but not one that would impact city sports fields — helped him reshape the motion to give it broader appeal. Since the ban plan was announced, the city has received about a dozen letters on the issue, with slightly more people supporting than opposing the idea. A representative from the Canadian Cancer Society was also at council on June 12 to urge the city to ban the chemicals. Health promotion co-ordinator Jerilynn Maki told council there are more than 100 studies linking pesticides to childhood leukemia, non-Hodgkins lymphoma, brain, kidney, prostate and pancreatic cancer — and communities need to start taking precautions. “We do believe [a ban] would raise your profile as a community that is focused on health and being a safe and healthy place for kids to play, especially with the sports fields and being the Tournament Capital,” she said.

Local business owners Morris and Jacquie Doherty of Grassroots Choice Lawn Care Ltd. wrote in to argue there isn’t enough scientific evidence to justify a ban — pointing to a recent report from B.C.’s legislative committee on pesticides, which said there was “insufficient scientific evidence” to support a provincial ban. In a letter to council, resident Lydia Mills argued a total ban would bring down property values in the city because there would be no ability to chemically control weeds. “Esthetic sometimes matter to people,” she wrote. Other letter writers said they’re concerned about the effects of pesticides for both health and environmental reasons and more weeds are worth the reduced risk. “I value my family’s health, the environment and the health of our community more than I do about the appearance of residents’ lawns,” wrote Percy Folkard. The revised version of the motion will be up for debate at council’s next regular meeting on Tuesday, June 26.

More grad vandalism It’s another act of vandalism on another Kamloops school — but, this time, it’s pretty obvious who the culprits are. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said an officer patrolling in the area of South Kamloops secondary spotted graffiti on the front of the school at about 5 a.m. on Monday, June 18. “The front of the school had been spray-painted in black lettering, ‘Grad 2012 is the shit,’” he said. Also found on the school grounds were two toilets, lots of toilet paper and spray-painted images of male and female body parts, Learned said. Police are following up with KamloopsThompson school district officials.

River search An exhaustive air, ground and water search turned up nothing following a report of an empty boat and a person in the Thompson River near Rabbit Island on the weekend. Kamloops Mounties were called just after 8:30 p.m. on Friday, June 15, after someone apparently spotted a boat floating down the river, with a person nearby in the water. Police, fire and search and rescue crews scoured the river and banks on Friday night and the following morning, but found nothing. The RCMP helicopter as well as police and fire boats were used in the search.

Cool off NOW OPEN! and work out

ANAVETS

Need a break from the heat? Cool off this summer with public skating, stick-and-puck and drop-in hockey sessions. Skating has great aerobic and cardiovascular benefits but does not have the joint impact that other activities such as running or jogging have. Skating also tones muscles, promotes weight loss, increases mental control such as alertness and is terrific for building self-esteem and confidence. There are free public-skating events this summer at Brock arena on July 21 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and on Aug. 18 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. These events are sponsored by Tim Hortons and the City of Kamloops.

Reaching back to move forward‌

You never know where you’ll find some of the fowler side of the city downtown. Sometimes they’re overhead or perched in a tree — and, sometimes, they just blend into the scenery. Dave Eagles/KTW

City partners on centre By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

these multi-million-dollar assets sit empty,� he said. Colin Reid, Y CEO, said programming the community centre will offer is still being developed, but the emphasis will be on children, teens and young families in the neighbourhood. “We have more ideas than we have space,� he said. “It could be a wide range of everything from licensed childcare programs to youth activities to health and wellness programs to family events and neighbourhood special events.� Once the Y and club decide what they will do with the space, the school will undergo some renovations.

When classes let out at John Tod elementary in June 2010, the North Shore school shut its doors for good. But, by 2013, the empty building will have a new purpose: A new North Shore community centre. While the plan is still in early stages, city and school district officials gathered at the McGowan Avenue site on Monday, June 18, to announce they have reached an agreement that will see the city lease the space, then sub-lease it to the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops and the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA. Mayor Peter Milobar said costs of the agreement are still

being worked out, but using John Tod should be les expensive than continuing to house the club in its current space. That MacArthur Island building is due for some costly renovations, including new roofing and a ventilation system — but also doesn’t have enough space for the club’s activities, Milobar said. “It’s getting to the point where the age of the building and the deficiencies in it are very expensive to try to fix and you’d still have space deficiencies. “This was a way to try to look at how we could move into a more cost-effective space,� he said. SD73 superintendent Terry Sullivan said he’s pleased to see John Tod given new life. “It really compounds our frustrations when, after the closure,

B.C. drivers tested for booze and drugs By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Roadside surveys are set to begin around B.C. this month to continue a research project that tests for marijuana, cocaine and other drugs, as well as alcohol use, by drivers. The B.C. government is spending up to $250,000 for the seventh survey of its kind in the province, part of a national program run by the Canadian Centre on Substance Abuse. Previous surveys have shown that in random samples, about 10 per cent of drivers test positive for alcohol and seven to eight per cent have a detectable level of drugs in their systems. This year’s survey is being done in the same communities as the last one in 2010: Vancouver, Saanich, Abbotsford, Prince George and Kelowna. The roadside surveys are supervised by police and use handheld breathalyzers, but they are for information only and won’t result in charges or suspensions. Drivers are asked

to voluntarily and confidentially answer questions, provide a breath sample and also a saliva sample using a plastic stick with an absorbent pad on the end. Saliva samples are sent for lab analysis to detect marijuana, cocaine, heroin and other opiates, amphetamines and common sedatives. The test doesn’t determine if the driver was impaired by drugs, but only if there is a level detectable by the lab test. Ottawa passed legislation in 2008 to give police authority to demand physical sobriety tests and collect blood, urine or saliva samples for drug testing, but no roadside test or legal limits currently exist for drug impairment. B.C. Justice Minister Shirley Bond said police do have options. “Police can issue a 24-hour prohibition at the roadside if they suspect drug impairment,” Bond said. “They can also take the driver into custody, so trained, certified police officers can conduct a

George and Kelowna for the first time in 2010, and the survey company found drivers more likely to agree to the interview and samples than those in the Lower Mainland. Of the 2,480 vehicles selected for testing in 2010, 86 per cent of drivers provided a breath sample and 71 per cent agreed to give a sample of oral fluid.

YOUR

Local DPAC neither for nor against wi-fi use By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Officials with the Kamloops-Thompson school district aren’t buying the latest claim that wireless Internet in the classroom is harmful to students. Last month, the B.C. Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils (BCCPAC) spoke out publicly about wi-fi in schools, calling on all school districts in the province to create at least one school each in which wireless waves don’t fill the air. “If it’s truly unsafe, you wouldn’t have it in most schools and not have it in one,” Karl de Bruijn, School District No. 73’s assistant superintendent, told KTW. “If it’s truly unsafe, you would have it in no schools.” The BCCPAC cited health concerns — including headaches, dizziness and trouble concentrating — in its request to B.C.’s school districts. But, de Bruijn said, studies have shown there is no link between wi-fi and health problems in students. “We take our direction on health issues from the chief medical health officer,” he said. “At this point in time, they have not issued any warnings.” Last week, the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s DPAC chair provided KTW a copy of the local association’s stance on the issue. “At this time, the

DPAC executive does not feel that we can promote the use of wi-fi in schools, especially at an elementary level, but, without more

information, we are not comfortable endorsing a ban on the use of wi-fi either,” reads the statement, signed by association chair Willemyn

Lonquist. “We can continue to nurture discussion, within our own level and during our meetings with [superintendent]

Dr. [Terry] Sullivan, the school board, teachers and our MLAs, and trust that everyone will continue to do the same within their schools.”

Reaching out to seniors By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

E

IGHTEEN months ago, there were just two staff members working for the Seniors Outreach Society — one full-time and one part-time. Today, the agency based out of several offices in the Desert Gardens Community Centre has grown to eight staff as it tackles some of the many issues faced by seniors in Kamloops. Among them is a new emergency housing program that is shining a light on a reality often overlooked by society — seniors at risk of or actually becoming homeless. Agency executive director Suzanne Goguen said the outreach program, kickstarted by a federal grant earlier this year, aims to keep seniors in their own homes, if that’s what they want, providing supports they might need. Others might need assistance finding lowincome housing that allows seniors to remain independent without draining pensions. Some, however, don’t have that option and may not have family or friends who can help them, Goguen said, and the program can provide emergency housing through two suites it operates. “At any given time, we may have 30 clients looking for low-income housing,” she said, “and some we can help quickly and some it takes more time.” The furnished suites are in a seniors building “so there’s a very supportive community,” she said. Other needed supports are also provided, either through the agency or by working with other social groups in Kamloops. “Seniors want to stay in their homes if they can,” Goguen said, “so we try to help with that. A lot of the work is service co-ordination, connecting them with meal services, using our Friendly Visitor program

Helping out with the recent 25th anniversary celebration of the Seniors Outreach Services is Marguerite Beesley. The society has announced the launch of a new program, At Home Outreach Project, that will not only provide temporary emergency accommodations to seniors, but also a range of support services to help them maintain their independence in the community. Dave Eagles/KTW

to provide them with some company.” Volunteers are essential to the work of the society. The visitor program pairs them with seniors for home visits, while its Snow Angel program has volunteers heading out in the winter, shovels in hand, to clear sidewalks and driveways for seniors. Volunteers can be any age, depending on the program. The visitor’s program has young adults up to other seniors involved,

while the snow-clearing often sees families heading out to help, the parents using the program to teach their children the value of giving back, Goguen said. The housing component has become key. “We don’t set them up for failure,” Goguen said, “but do as much as we can to keep them at home. The important thing is to make sure seniors are in safe accommodation.” Sometimes it is less expensive to hire a housekeeper than to

move to assisted living, she said, while there are other times when just having someone check in is sufficient for seniors to stay in their homes. Society client-services supervisor Lynn Burrows said her nine months with the agency has shown her the huge need the seniors’ sector has in Kamloops. Every one of the 3,200 seniors the society sees on average every year is unique in their needs — and that makes every day “crazy. There is no typical day,” Burrows said. She might follow a home visit with a trip to Royal Inland Hospital to help a senior about to head back home. That might be followed by a visit with a senior to a bank to reclaim control of their finances, a reminder that seniors can also be victims of abuse — physical, emotional and financial. The day KTW visited, Burrows said the week had been “crisis after crisis after crisis” and, while that may seem

depressing, she said it was good for new staff to see how they were succeeding in addressing each issue. “We’re not BandAiding them,” she said. “We help seniors to be realistic about what is affordable. We’re always looking at creative ways so they are not set up for failure.” Abuse is a reality the society deals with on a regular basis. Often, the abuser is a family member, Burrows said, and much of it involves those who handle the senior’s money. Staff will do what they have to do to help seniors being abused, be it meeting with the bank, helping seniors change account passwords, explaining what their family member is really doing to them, involving a public trustee — or calling in the police. “Helping the seniors population, I think that is going to be a growing need a demanding need,” Goguen said. “But, when we do it, it feels like we’re helping our own grandmothers and grandfathers.”

Armstrong comes home By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

Dylan Armstrong is one fatigued shot putter. The 31-year-old from Kamloops is back home after competing across Europe, North America and Asia these last few months en route to the Olympic Summer Games in London, which get underway on July 27. “It’s really good to be home,” the 6-foot-4, 345-pound athlete told KTW on Monday, June 18. “We know we’ve got a hard training block in front of us.” Armstrong and coach Anatoliy Bondarchuk will be practising twice daily in the throws pit at Hillside Stadium until the Canadian Olympic

trials, which run from June 27 to June 30 in Calgary. The hulking shot putter was in good form on the weekend, placing first at the Donovan Bailey Invitational on Saturday, June 16, with a throw of 21.02 metres. His personal best on the season is 21.50 metres, still well shy of his all-time mark of 22.21 metres, set at the Canadian championships in 2011. Armstrong will be joined later this month at the trials by National Throws Centre teammates Sultana Frizell, Kibwe Johnson and Megann and Justin Rodhe.

shots hit, but is the least practiced aspect of golf. Second, most golfers add loft to their putter at impact. A Harvard study of over 100 tour professionals revealed that 87 percent of missed putts were caused by too much loft at impact, while 13 per cent of missed putts were caused by a poor swing path or stroke. Fix: First of all, getting better at golf, or anything for that matter, requires practice. Start by dedicating at least 50 per cent of your practice time to putting. Of that time, dedicate 80 per cent to putts within 10 feet of the hole. Next, we need a swing station to work on your stoke. All you need are four golf tees, some practice balls and two golf clubs. Set one tee in the ground on the top edge of the back of the cup. Focusing here will help narrow your focus on a smaller target rather than the cup itself.

Set two tees in the ground, just wider than the width of your putter head, about 10 feet from the cup. Next, set two clubs about five inches apart, halfway between your two tees and the cup. Take the final tee and stick it about a quarter inch inside the little hole on the end of your putter grip. Now you are ready to practice your stroke. Take a ball and set it just in front of your two tees 10 feet from the hole. When you set up to hit this putt, you should be looking down the target line with the two clubs you placed looking like rails. As you continue your eyes to the target you will see the tee you placed at the back of the hole. When you make a stroke you have two goals. The first is to ensure the path of the putter does not hit either tee in the ground. Secondly, the tee

you placed in the end of your putter should actually be a little closer to your front forearm at impact than it was at address. Your shoulders should control the stroke, the arms swinging in sync, and the wrists alive and free to respond naturally. All good putters have lag in their stroke and the putter head will come through impact with a little less loft than was set at address. You should see your ball roll true and your putting will improve with consistent practice.

Heat cooking up TRU talent in PCSL ranks By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The recent success of the Kamloops Heat in the under-21 men’s reserve Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) is a good sign for the TRU WolfPack. Well over 80 per cent of the Heat’s roster will suit up for the WolfPack men’s team in Pacific Western Athletic Association play this fall. TRU co-head coaches Sean Wallace and John Antulov took the Heat’s reins this season and are undefeated through six games, with four wins and two ties. “For us, having that continuity with Sean and myself, the players are familiar with us and each other,” Antulov said. The Heat are playing under the umbrella of the Kamloops Excel, the PCSL men’s premier club that could not field a team this season. “The PCSL called us and asked if we could put a team in,” Antulov said. “We try and use the under-21 program to look at recruits and

look at players that are coming into the [TRU] program.” Darren Dinsdale, who red-shirted for the Pack last season, scored the Heat’s only goal in a 1-1 draw with West Van FC on McArthur Island on Saturday, June 16. Also in the lineup for Kamloops was Seb Gardner, who is attempting to make an inspirational comeback to the WolfPack lineup this fall. “He was diagnosed with lymphoma recently and he’s been going through his cancer treatment and going through chemo,” Antulov said. “He’s got his last chemo treatment this coming week. “Hopefully, he gets a scan after that and everything goes well.” Next up for Kamloops is a tilt with the Total Soccer Systems Academy Stars of Richmond at 7 p.m. on Friday, June 29, at Hillside Stadium. The women’s premier Kamloops Heat of the PCSL suffered a 5-1 defeat to Vancouver Whitecaps FC on McArthur on Saturday before being handed a

Wenger:A rocky ride to glory

I

T HAS BEEN DONE. Against better judgement. Against the forces of headwind. Against all messages sent by muscles, heart and lungs — I have qualified for the B.C. Randonneurs Rocky Mountain 1,200-kilometre race on July 22. After last year’s unsuccessful attempt at the 600-kilometre race, I went into this year with trepidation. Even after completing the 200-metre and 300-metre races and almost cracking the women’s B.C. Randonneurs’ record in the 400-kilometre, I was worried. The 400-kilometre race can be done in one day without sleep and without darkness. The 600-kilometre requires an overnight, making it a whole different challenge. And, as if that wasn’t enough to worry about, we started the day with the threat of rain and wind. Thankfully, the only rain occurred in the first two hours, but the wind persisted. The first 118 kilometres to Cache Creek took eight hours when the trip should have taken four or five hours. It is in that first 100 kilometres when the mental games threaten

SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS to make you give up and stop the forward struggle against the never-ending wind. I was a little concerned when my husband Chris broke into the Red Bull so early on, but it turned out to be just what we needed to lift our energy and spirits for the long uphill ride through my childhood memories. Cache Creek, where I went to elementary school, 20 Mile, where I turned off every day on the school bus home, and Clinton, where I had my first summer job. As we climbed toward 100 Mile, the sun came out, but the wind never ceased. We climbed on, arriving in 100 Mile at 6 p.m. and checking into the hotel. But, it wasn’t time to stop. The headwind continued toward Williams Lake and I began to fantasize about the tailwind on the way back. We finally rolled

into Williams Lake at 10 p.m., just in time to load up with chocolate and Coke, turn on our bike lights and turn back for 100 Mile. Riding in the dark is surreal. Perspective disappears, leaving you unsure if you are climbing or riding on the flats. Only your gears give you a clue. The temperature dropped to 2 C as we rode back into 100 Mile at 2:30 a.m. and pulled into Tim Hortons. A hot meal never tasted so good. I have mixed feelings about whether it would have been better to keep riding since getting on the bike seat again at 6:30 a.m. was excruciating. In the morning, the sun was out and Horse Lake Road was quiet. We had our only tailwind, but the enjoyment was short-lived when we began to ascend McDonald Summit. Thankfully, we began our descent into Little Fort, dropping 10 kilometres on an eight per cent grade with seven runaway lanes. From Little Fort back to Kamloops became a bit of a sufferfest. I would have expected nothing less. The final 20 kilometres were crazy. The headwind came

back with a vengeance. It’s a good thing we were so close, or it would have been easy to sit on the side of the road and cry. But, we rolled into the Halston Husky and dismounted at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon. Out of the nine people who started on Saturday morning at 6 a.m., we were two of the four who finished. I am proud to have persevered. I am excited to have ridden my bike with my awesome husband for 600 kilometres in 33 hours with 16,000 vertical feet of climbing and 340 kilometres of headwind. The end result — qualifying for the Rocky Mountain 1200, which takes 120 riders from Kamloops to Jasper to Lake Louise and back to Kamloops in between 84 to 90 hours. I am terrified, exhilarated, exhausted and excited. Did I mention I was terrified? Shawn Wenger is a BCRPA registered personal trainer and weight training and group fitness instructor.

First-rounder Halbgewachs signs on the dotted line

CANADA HAS NEEDS Matt Needham of the Kamloops Blazers will attend a Hockey Canada under-18 selection camp this summer. A 22-player Team Canada roster will be named after the four-day camp — Aug. 3 to Aug. 6 in Toronto — for the Memorial of Ivan Hlinka tournament, which runs from Aug. 13 to Aug. 18 in Piestany, Slovakia, and Breclav, Czech Republic. Players born in 1995 and 1996 are eligible for the tournament. The Ontario Hockey League will send 17 players to the camp, with the Western Hockey League (WHL) and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League each sending 13. If Needham does make the team, it won’t be the first time he’s cracked a Hockey Canada Program of Excellence roster. He placed fifth with Team Pacific at the U17 World Hockey Challenge in Windsor, Ont., last season and won gold with Team B.C. at the 2011 Canada Winter Games in Halifax. Marty Hastings/KTW

Jayden Halbgewachs signed with the Kamloops Blazers on Friday, June 15. The 5-foot-7 forward was the WHL club’s first pick, 19th overall, at the league’s bantam draft in May. He recorded 89

points, 55 of them goals, in 24 games last season with the Prairie Storm of the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League. “We are excited to announce that Jayden and his family have committed to our pro-

Uncle Chris the Clown leads runners at the Peter’s Pennies for Prostate cancer fundraiser, which was co-sponsored by Radio NL and CIBC and wrapped up with the annual Safeway Father’s Day Walk-Run for Prostate Cancer at the B.C. Wildlife Park on Sunday, June 17. The weeks-long penny drive raised $16,592.89, while the run added $3,225 to the cause. Taking part in the weekend run were red-clad Safeway employees (left to right) Stephanie Goldenthal and Jasmine Elgazzar (both from the Salmon Arm Safeway store) and Landon Whitmore, Greg Frederick and Darren Dinsdale from Kamloops.

PENNY WISE FOR PROSTATE RESEARCH

In seven weeks, more than $15,500 in pennies and over 10,616 pounds of the copper coin. That’s the total donated to the Prostate Cancer Foundation of BC through the Peter’s Pennies for Prostate fundraising campaign. On April 23, NL Broadcasting Ltd. and CIBC branches in Kamloops and the area launched a seven-week penny drive, with a goal of raising awareness about prostate cancer and money for research into the disease. On Sunday, June 17, at the Safeway Father’s Day Walk/Run for Prostate Cancer at the B.C. Wildlife Park, Radio NL’s Peter Olsen — himself a prostate-cancer survivor — presented the cheque on behalf of everyone who donated. CIBC donated an additional $1,000 to the campaign, bringing the total for Peter’s Pennies for Prostate to more than $16,500. “It’s been both an amazing and humbling personal experience,” Olsen said. “Complete strangers opening up their wallets and their hearts to help another person. It’s truly heart-warming.”

Decadence at Wilson House There is but one day left to take in Decadence, Theresa Leigh Tahara’s impressive exhibit of fine-art photography at the Wilson House Gallery, 115 Tranquille Rd. Decadence is on display until 4 p.m. on Wednesday, June 20. “I decided to use the word ‘decadence’ as the title of my exhibition in the sense of a transition between Romanticism and Modernism,” Tahara says. Theresa is a self-taught fine art photographer who won three Jurors’ Choice Awards in her first juried art show last year. This exhibition is a cross-section of her different styles of fine art photography.

No doubt about it, Bryan Adams is still waking up the neighbours. Having scooted out of his almost-three-hourlong concert on Sunday, June 17, the singalong going on in Interior Savings Centre could still be heard a couple of blocks away. To call it a concert is wrong — it was a big love-in, with Adams soaking up the adulation and singing along with the sold-out audience that seemed to know every word to every song. The B.C. rocker admonished security at the arena to let people stand up and dance — “and don’t be shining your flashlights in their faces” — all helping to build the party atmosphere. This wasn’t about a new release or songs he’s just written — this was a celebration of the music that has made Adams the international star he has become. It was also to mark, albeit a year too late, the 20th anniversary of Waking Up The Neighbours, perhaps the recording that most clearly defines his music. All the hits were there: House Arrest, Somebody, Straight From the Heart, Do I Have to Say the Words — which was accompanied by a truly poignant video of a younger Adams — I’m Ready and Everything I Do, among so many more. Best musical moment of the night? It had to be drummer Michael Curry banging on buckets, a wok and other kitchen utensils to create a pounding solo for If You Wanna Leave Me. Next-best moment? It had to be how Adams shared the stage with his longtime bandmates, guitarist Keith Scott, bassist Norm Fisher and keyboardist Gary Breit. This is the first tour they’ve done together in 20 years — and the magic is still there. He may be middle-aged, but Adams still knows how to wake up the neighbours — and get them to rock out.

No sour notes from Sweet By Don Levasseur SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.om

I

WAS FIRST INTRODUCED TO SWEET (A.K.A. THE SWEET) IN THE MID-1980S, A DECADE AFTER THE RELEASE OF ITS NORTH AMERICAN ALBUM, DESOLATION BOULEVARD. I remember zipping around East Vancouver in a little Chevrolet Chevette, delivering pizzas while listening to its songs on the cassette car stereo. When I heard Sweet would be performing at the Kamloops Convention Centre, my mind instantly returned to those days, when my hair was long, the aroma of freshly baked pizza filled the car and the stereo system (worth more then the car itself) blasted out great songs like Ballroom Blitz, Set Me Free and Fox on the Run, to name a few. It’s great to remi-

nisce but sometimes, the past should stay the past. I have been to a few concerts lately and left with the feeling the band I watched should have hung up its guitars and spandex years ago. Was this going to be one of those nights? The show started with a popular local band, Fastlane. This is the second time I have seen it play. The first time was when it opened for Blue Oyster Cult — and, both times, it rocked the house with its Queensryche, Dokken and Iron Maiden music styling. Guitarists Todd Flodstrom and Bret Koroll (who also handles vocals) burned up the place with great riffs and an impressive rendition of Van Halen’s Hot For Teacher. Todd Clack, lead vocalist, was belting out cover tunes and original songs like

Get Off My Mind, Far From Home, Holiday and Fastlane Love, all of which are getting airplay on local radio stations. If you haven’t had the opportunity to hear Fastlane perform, here’s your chance. The band will take centre stage at the Canada Day celebration at Riverside Park just prior to the evening’s fireworks. Let’s hope this time Richard Graham, the band’s drummer, will show up on time. During the intermission, I started to visualize what The Sweet might look like now. A group of old Brits with big beer

bellies, bad teeth and extreme hair loss edging to the stage and, God forbid, wearing spandex — that image alone almost had me dry-heaving in my seat. I was aware all the original band members from 1968 had long departed and Andy Scott, guitar /vocals, would be the only member from 1973 performing. I prepared myself to have my memories of this 1980s glam-rock band possibly ruined and leaving the venue feeling nauseous. As the lights dimmed and the stage lights went up, out from stage left came a group of guys ready to

rock — and did they ever. These Brits know how to put on a great show and had the place rocking. I was impressed and glad to hear The Sweet live for the first time. Joe Retta, frontman and vocalist, held nothing back and knew how to keep the audience entertained. Scott, at the age of 62 — along with Stevie Stewart on keyboards — truly kept the unique sound and style of The Sweet alive. Thank you for keeping my memory of Sweet intact— and my stomach thanks you, as well.

FORD GIVES DRIVERS POWER OF CHOICE By Rob Beintema SPECIAL TO KTW WheelsTalk.com

S

OMETIMES IT SEEMS LIKE adding more alternatives just makes choosing more difficult. New technologies and solutions seem to raise more questions than answers. New engines? Hybrid cars? Plug-in hybrids? Electric vehicles? Consumers get inundated with so much new information that sometimes the message gets muddled. Which is why Ford Canada launched a 2012 Power of Choice Tour that started in May and visited eight cities across the country — Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Ottawa, Montreal and Toronto, where the tour ended at the Allstream Centre on the Canadian National Exhibition grounds. Focused on telling Ford’s electrification and sustainability story through media, the tour featured Ford experts and offered behind the wheel experiences, designed to answer current questions and illustrate a wider range of consumer choices. “By offering a range of technologies — everything from fuel-efficient gasoline engines, hybrid, plug-in hybrid and full electric — we are truly giving our customers the power of choice,” said Steve Ross, Ford’s manager, product marketing, sustainability and electrification. “We’re giving Canadians the flexibility to do what they need to do while getting great fuel economy.” Some of those new vehicle and technology choices highlighted on the tour included Ford EcoBoost engines. Ford’s EcoBoost lineup blends gasoline direct injection with turbocharging to make big engine power in a smaller engine size. Ecoboost engines can deliver up to 20 per cent better fuel economy and can reduce CO2 emissions by up to 15 per cent on regular octane fuel. Ford is offering EcoBoost engines in 11 vehicles in 2012, up from seven in 2011, tripling the production capacity of EcoBoostequipped Ford vehicles (1.5-million engines globally). Ford customers have taken to the EcoBoost solution, illustrated by the sales numbers of the company’s most popular product — the top-selling F-150 pickup. In 2010, all F-150 trucks sold featured a V8 engine. Just one year later, more than half of 2011 F-150 customers bought pickups with a fuel-saving V6 — either the base 305-hp 3.7-litre or the 365-hp 3.5-litre EcoBoost version.

TOP: A lineup of some of Ford’s latest vehicles, with the 2012 Ford Focus Electric in front followed by 2013 Ford Escape and 2012 Ford Fusion models. LEFT: The Ford Focus Electric can be recharged in 3.5 to four hours through a 240V unit, half the time of the Nissan Leaf. ABOVE: The 2012 Focus Electric boasts a fully loaded interior with SmartGuages and EcoGuide that uses a butterfly display. Rob Bientema photos

The Power of Choice Tour demonstrated some of the latest EcoBoost additions with the new 2013 Ford Escape that offers two engine options — a 240-hp 2.0-litre EcoBoost or a 178-hp 1.6-litre EcoBoost engine that has earned the Escape Transport Canada’s certification as the most fuelefficient small SUV with an automatic transmission. The 2013 Escape lineup does not offer

a hybrid version, a model made redundant by the advance of the new fuel-efficient engines and the debut of the North American C-MAX model. Since its latest generation introduction in late 2010, the Ford C-MAX has doubled it sales numbers to more than 135,000 units sold across Europe. Two North American-built five-seater hybrid versions from the C-MAX lineup will

be coming to Canadian dealers this fall. The 2013 C-MAX Hybrid is a standard hybrid, combining a lithium-ion battery with a smaller four-cylinder 2.0-litre Atkinson gasoline engine. The battery is recharged when the gasoline engine is in operation and by a regenerative braking system that recaptures more than 95 per cent of the braking energy. XSee HYBRIDS A9

Hybrids, electrics fuel Ford The 2013 C-MAX Energi is a plug-in hybrid. It is charged by connecting the vehicle’s external charge port to either a standard 120volt outlet or available 240-volt charging station. Virtually all C-MAX Energi components are the same as the regular C-MAX Hybrid but, with a bigger battery, it will benefit from a longer electric-only range at the cost of some cargo room and 150 kilograms in more curb weight. Both models are aimed squarely at Prius competitors in their respective classes. More info and specs will be available closer to vehicle launch. The 2012 Fusion Hybrid earned very respectable fuel economy numbers of 5.7/6.5L/100km (city/ hwy). The new 2013 Fusion Hybrid should do even better, replacing the nickel-metal hydride battery with a lighter lithium-ion version and using the new, more efficient 2.0-litre Atkinson-cycle fourcylinder gasoline engine instead of the previous 2.5-litre version. As in the C-MAX lineup, Fusion will also offer a plug-in Energi version to compete with the Chevy Volt. Both versions will be available by fall. Ford’s increased sense of sustainability actually covers the entire Fusion lineup,

using recaptured products. Every vehicle includes the equivalent of 39 pop bottles for seat fabric, two pairs of jeans for soundabsorption filler and 30,000 soy beans for seat foam, along with other recycled plastics and tire rubber. New vehicle ingredients in future may include materials made from dandelions, coconuts, corn, and even shredded U.S. currency is being looked at. Finally, Ford Canada’s Power of Choice Tour offered a test drive of the 2012 Focus Electric, a pure electric vehicle As with most electric vehicles, there’s little in the way of

drama, even with such a radical departure from the norm. Yes, the battery and components add more than 300 kilograms of extra curb weight but, aside from some discreet badging, the electric version looks like any other Focus. Hit the start button, push the go pedal and the Focus Electric accelerates from a standstill with all the silent subtlety of a golf cart. The electric motor boasts 143-hp and 184 lb/ft of torque, offering a 160-kilomere range. That’s depending, of course, on your driving style and conditions, nicely monitored by a SmartGauge system

with EcoGuide that uses blue butterfly graphics to show surplus range beyond your recharging point, earned through careful driving and regenerative brake use. The Focus Electric can be plugged in for charging through a port on the front fender. A full charge takes about 20 hours with a 120-volt plug or just under four hours using a 240-volt portable charging system offered by Ford and BestBuy. The 2012 Focus Electric is now being built on the same line as the Focus. It lists for $41,499, although provincial grants reduce that price to a low- or mid$30,000 range.

Driving with Mercedes-Benz Formula 1 legend and DTM driver David Coulthard and professional golfer Jake Shepherd set a Guinness World Record on May 30 at Dunsfold Aerodrome, Surrey, England as part of a viral film for Mercedes-Benz. Coulthard, who was driving a 571-hp MercedesBenz SLS AMG Roadster at 193 km/h, caught a golf ball in the cockpit of the moving car, which was 275 metres from the tee and hit by Shepherd at an astonishing 286 km/h. This amazing achievement secured the world record for the furthest golf shot caught in a moving car in only the second attempt of the day. The outstanding feat of skill was captured on film and will be launched in early July to celebrate the power of the SLS AMG Roadster which, due to its AMG hand-assembled M 159 V8 engine, rockets to 100 km/h in just 3.8 seconds. “This world record attempt is definitely one of the most unusual things I’ve ever been asked to do with a car,” David Coulthard said. “Jake Shepherd was great to work with and the performance of the SLS AMG Roadster made driving to catch a mid-air golf ball even more exciting.” Former FI driver David Coulthard, driving a Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG, was able to catch, in mid-air, the golf ball hit by pro golfer Jake Shepherd to set a new Guinness World Record.

NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY

Perseverance led to national day of recognition

W

hile Kamloops and the rest of Canada celebrates National Aboriginal Day on Thursday, June 21, it is important to note the roots of the day can be traced back almost three decades and include countless years of lobbying and pursuing the issue with the federal government. The first call for a day to recognize the culture and contributions of the many First Nations, Inuit and Métis people of Canada goes back to 1982. It was then that the National Indian Brotherhood, which is now the Assembly of First Nations,

called for the creation of a National Aboriginal Day. Even then there was no question as to when the event should be observed, with the Brotherhood

calling for the celebrations to be observed on June 21 — the summer solstice. Showing the speed, or lack thereof, with which the request was

handled, the formal process wasn’t begun until 1995, when the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples recommended the observance of such a day.

In December 1995, Elijah Harper hosted a Sacred Assembly in Hull, Que., at which a national day to recognize Aboriginal peoples and their contribution to Canada

was discussed. Following consultations with aboriginal groups, the federal government selected June 21. The date was chosen because the

summer solstice holds special significance for many aboriginal groups who already celebrate their cultures and heritage on that day. On June 13 of the following year, just eight days before it was to be celebrated, then-Governor General Romeo LeBlanc declared June 21 as National Aboriginal Day across the country. One-hundred-andninety-two hours later, the first National Aboriginal Day events are held. Today, National Aboriginal Day is part of the fabric of Canada and leads the celebration of the country as June 21 flows into Canada Day 10 days later.

NATIONAL ABORIGINAL DAY

Plenty of celebrations set There are two placed in Kamloops at which to celebrate National Aboriginal Day on Thursday, June 21. The Tk’emlups Indian Band is hosting a daylong extravaganza at its Powwow grounds on East Shuswap Road. The opening ceremony begins at 11 a.m., followed by special presentations until noon.

COMMUNITY HURRY ALONG, DEER A mama deer and her baby take a stroll through a field near Rayleigh. The very wet June has turned the normally brown Kamloops landscape into shades of green. Allen Douglas photo

ESTHER KATE KETSA April 18, 1960 – June 2, 2012 It is with heavy hearts and great sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Esther Kate Ketsa on June 2, 2012. She was born April 18, 1960 in Vernon, BC where she grew up. She is survived by her loving husband and best friend, Shaun Jennings; Mother Irene Ketsa; brother Ken (Cheryl) Ketsa; sisters Lorraine (Mike) Sorba, Elaine Grevenitis; Nan Jean Jennings; father in-law and mother in-law Dave and Helen Jennings; sister inlaw Karen (Rick) Clarke; brother in-law Gary (Leanne) Jennings and special friends Wayne and Marsha. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces and friends who loved her dearly. Esther had a passion for the outdoors and enjoyed life to the fullest. Whether fishing or feeding the pelicans at her favourite lake, Tzenzaicut Lake, you could also find her quadding or motor biking. Gardening and cooking were other passions she had. If she could bring every stray animal into her home she would as she was a very loving and caring person. Family and friends were dear to her heart. She was a vibrant, positive person who will never be forgotten, always loved and greatly missed. A Celebration of Life will be held on Sunday, June 24 at the Ukrainian Orthodox Hall between 1 pm and 4 pm, 725 York Ave Kamloops, BC. All those who knew her are welcome. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St Paul’s Hospital Heart Transplant Clinic 5C Providence Wing 1081 Burrard St, Vancouver BC V5J 1L6, or the Kamloops SPCA.

“If Tears Could Build A Stairway, And Memories A Lane, I’d Walk Right Up To Heaven And Bring You Home Again”.

We’re going to miss you Bill, and good luck in your new ventures. From Charlie, Nadine, Tammy and their families. Also a special thanks to Hilda and all her family for being there for us. Thanks to all our neighbors and good friends who supplied meals for us at the hospital and at home. It was much appreciated.

Diana Vallaster- Foltan. It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dear Diana on the 7th of June 2012. Diana was a pioneer of the health industry in Kamloops. She worked alongside her sister Adelle, and together they were known as “the sisters”. She has touched and healed many lives, to know her was to love her. She was a beautiful soul who saw the goodness and beauty in all things. Her smile and grace will be deeply missed, but always remembered in our hearts. She is survived by her loving family- her son Eric Foltan (Louise) and granddaughter Amy, her daughter Marnie Foltan (Malcolm), sisters Adelle Vallaster, Gale Hill, brother Robert Vallaster (Vange) and Don Vallaster (Sandy), as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles. Her celebration of life will be held in the beautiful gardens at TRU’s Horticulture Dept. on June 24th, from 11 to 3. Welcome to those who have been touched by Diana’s kindness. In lieu of flowers, if there are any donation wishes, please donate to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice or the SPCA. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoenings.com

One Final Gift Scatter me not to restless winds, Nor toss my ashes to the sea. Remember now those years gone by When loving gifts I gave to thee. Remember now the happy times The family ties we shared. Don’t leave my resting place unmarked As though you never cared. Deny me not one final gift For all who come to see A single lasting proof that says I loved... and you loved me. Author Unknown
