Fired school bus driver accused of ‘grooming’ girls By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
A 59-year-old school bus driver who was fired for engaging in a relationship with a 15-year-old girl on his bus route had been “grooming” other teens as well, according to the testimony of a social worker. Merv Hanson was in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, July 16, seeking to remove a ministry-imposed order barring him from seeing the 15-year-old, whose name KTW has chosen not to publish. MERV A one-time HANSON Kamloops city council candidate, Hanson was fired in March after the KamloopsThompson school district conducted an investigation into his relationship with the teen. Court has previously heard Hanson met the girl on his bus route. He told investigators he began offering her music lessons at his house. The girl’s parents called police,
who in turn contacted the Ministry of Children and Family Development, after her relationship with Hanson began to create problems in the family home. Police investigated, court heard, but could find no evidence of any sexual relationship. An officer told Hanson to stay away from the girl, but he kept in contact with her. In May, she moved into his house for a matter of days, prior to the nocontact order being put in place. In court, social worker Michelle Pearce said Hanson exhibited similar “grooming behaviour” with other students on his route. “He tells them that they’re special,” she said. “With [the 15-year-old girl], it’s her music — he tells her she can be the next Avril Lavigne.” Pearce brought up another incident involving a teen girl who has since moved out of province. She said Hanson carried on an involved online relationship with the girl.

A note to warn — for next while, avoid Lorne Drivers heading to Riverside Park over the next two weeks should expect slow going as the city shuts down several blocks of Lorne Street as part of its ongoing upgrades in the area. Until July 27, Lorne Street will be closed between the Red Bridge and Second Avenue. The city will also shut down Third Avenue between Lorne and Lansdowne streets, while closures on Second Avenue will remain in place. Local and business access, as well as access to Interior Savings Centre, will be available through the construction.
The parking lots at Heritage House and east of the park’s tennis courts will be accessible via First Avenue. About 4,000 visitors are expected to hit ISC during the construction period for the Watchtower Convention — a Jehovah’s Witnesses gathering that takes place over two weekends — which the city expects will cause further delays. Last fall, BC Hydro and cable lines were installed under Lorne Street between First and Third avenues as part of the overall plan to beautify the area. The project was budgeted at $725,000, with BC Hydro cov-
ering $145,000 and the city picking up the rest of the tab. In April, city crews began ripping up Lorne Street to replace sewer and water mains and the road top itself. A roundabout will eventually be installed at Lorne and Third, with a large cost coming from development cost charges to the tune of $800,000. The Sandman Hotel, which is being built on Lorne Street across from Riverside Park, is contributing $400,000. In 2013, the city is planning a complete realignment of the intersection at Lorne and Lansdowne streets and First Avenue. www.kamloopsdodge.com

Twenty-nine-year-old Jesse Seymour (seen above in a screenshot of a hip-hop video on YouTube in which he performs) was stabbed during a fight on Sunday, July 15, outside this home at 746 Columbia St. Seymour died shortly after at Royal Inland Hospital. Torbin Alec, 29, was arrested and has been charged with second-degree murder in connection to what Kamloops Mounties say was a consensual fight. Andrea Klassen/KTW
Stabbing leads to second-degree murder charge By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
As members of the Tk’emlups Indian Band come to grips with the death of a promising young band member, Kamloops police are still trying to work out what sparked the fight that left 29 year-old Jesse Seymour dead. Seymour, a TIB youth worker and father of one, died at Royal Inland Hospital just after 4 a.m. on Sunday, July 15, after being stabbed during what police have described as a “consensual fight” at a small house party at 746 Columbia Ave. RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said Seymour and 29-year-old Torbin Alec had been drinking
prior to the fight, and were both described by witnesses as “heavily intoxicated” when they began to argue. “In a residence, and even typically in a licensed premise, the first comment is ‘take it outside.’ “And, of course, that’s what ostensibly happened,” Learned said. Once the two were outside, police believe the argument escalated and a knife was produced. Learned said the type of weapon used was expected to be determined during an autopsy scheduled for Monday, July 16. Alec has been charged with second-degree murder and was to appear in court on Monday, July 16. Learned said the two men knew each other and were “good friends
who grew up together.” Both Alec and Seymour — known as Optikz behind the mic — were active in the Kamloops hip-hop scene and had performed with the local rap crew Sundown Stylistics in the past. Alec is also known to RCMP, Learned said, and has a history of violent and weapons-related offences. In 2006, Alec was sentenced to a six-month jail term after threatening a man with a sharpened screwdriver outside a local gas station. In 2009, he pleaded guilty to attempted robbery after he and a friend tried to rob a man in the Extra Foods parking lot. It’s unclear what the argument that led to Sunday’s stabbing was
about. Learned said police still have more witnesses to interview on the subject “before we have a really concrete idea about that.” Learned said the party doesn’t appear to have been a rowdy one, noting the Columbia Street house isn’t normally on the RCMP’s radar. A neighbour in the 700-block of Columbia Street said while the tenants host some get-togethers, they are typically not loud or disturbing to others on the block. Seymour is the son of Tk’emlups Indian Band Coun. Fred Seymour, nephew of former band chief Manny Jules, son-in-law of B.C. Lt.-Gov. Steven Point and the father of a three-year-old boy.

Shane Gottfriedson said the loss has shocked the community. “We’re only 1,250 members and, when we lose one person, our whole community grieves,” he said. “And, right now, there’s a lot of grieving going on and a lot of trying to understand why and how come. Such a young man with so much ahead of him — it’s hard to put the pieces together and find reason or rhyme.” Gottfriedson described Seymour as outgoing and personable, with a large group of friends. “All we can do at this time is pray for the family,” he added. “This is going to be a hard one for our community, for sure.” The homicide is Kamloops’ second of the year.

MP ‘reassured’ after oil-sands tour DEALS Kamloops Conservative MP Cathy McLeod: OF THE WEEK! ‘They’re making some very good strides’ Y 22
STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Kamloops-ThompsonCariboo MP Cathy McLeod said she has been “reassured” about the environmental sustainability of Alberta’s oil sands following a tour in Fort McMurray this week. McLeod wrapped up a twoday tour that included a helicopter survey of the Syncrude, Sunoco, Albian Sands and CNRL projects and a visit to the Syncrude Canada site — one of the largest in the northern Alberta oil sands. The Conservative MP said she was “quite amazed” struck by the scope of the projects, as well as by statistics showing how much cash the oil sands generate. “In some ways it seemed really big and, in others, if you look, it’s surrounded by thousands of kilometres of forested area,” McLeod said, adding she also took an interest in previously mined portions of the sands that are now being reclaimed. “They had brought it back to bison roaming, replanted and reintroduced natural species,” she said. “They’re making some very good strides in terms of technology and reducing. “They’re pretty focused on reducing emissions. I think
the industry recognizes that they have to continue to make advances.” McLeod said she was struck by figures showing just how much money is generated from mining and extraction. “This is eight to 10 per cent, depending on the figures you look at, of our GDP right now,” she said, noting the money isn’t just staying in Alberta. “It might be a manufacturer in Ontario, it might be someone it British Columbia, but the positive economic impacts are actually countrywide.” McLeod said she feels other federal politicians need to make a visit to the sands before they form an opinion about the controversial industry. “What [the tour] really did is, it reassured me there’s significant strides being made in terms of the environmental issues,” she said. McLeod said she’s still convinced oil pipelines are a good way to transport crude from the oil sands to B.C. and the U.S., provided they are held to high safety standards. Kinder Morgan of Texas is proposing a $4.1-billion Trans Mountain pipeline expansion to its Burrard Inlet terminal in Burnaby. The expansion would impact the pipeline as it passes through Kamloops. Federal NDP Leader Thomas
Mulcair, who has also been travelling through Alberta and B.C. during the past week, told media on June 11 that criticism of a Enbridge’s handling of a major oil pipeline leak in Michigan should spell the end of the proposed controversial Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline. A report by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board criticized the Calgary-based company for taking 17 hours to respond to a leak that dumped more than three-million litres of crude oil into a river and wetlands in Michigan. The Northern Gateway line would run from the Alberta oil sands to Kitimat, where oil could be shipped to the Asian market. McLeod said she is waiting for the results of an environmental assessment of the project before forming an opinion on the pipeline — but said these kind of projects are necessary to get product shipped. “We need to have pipelines that move the product to market,” she said, noting there needs to be strict standards for companies. “If it can be done safely, it needs to be done safely, and companies have to be held to a high standard of safety,” she said, adding the federal government included more funding to improve pipeline safety in its last budget.

Were Gaglardis offside during lakeCROP project? BC NEW
ON THE VINE TOMATOES By Tim Petruk
The Gaglardi family is in hot legal water after allegedly breaking federal laws while carrying out construction work on a lakefront property in Savona. Tom Gaglardi, his father Bob and Jim Parks, in addition to the Gaglardi-owned Northland Properties Corporation, are facing two charges under the federal Fisheries Act. According to court documents obtained by KTW, the charges allege the parties contravened federal legislation by first clearing and then filling land — actions “that resulted in the harmful alteration, disruption or destruction of fish habitat, the foreshore of Kamloops Lake.” The documents allege the offences took place between April 2010 and Jan. 25, 2011. The charges were laid on April 10, 2012. TNRD director Ronaye Elliott said the waterfront Gaglardi property is located east of the entry to the Savona Aspen Planers panel plant and is roughly the size of two city lots. She said the work so close to the water angered some area residents. “Well, yeah, because you’re not allowed to do work on the shore,” she said. “There’s people who live along the shore who aren’t even allowed to move logs on their property.” Elliott said the TNRD issued a stop-work order on the construction. Tom Gaglardi is the majority owner of the Kamloops Blazers and recently purchased the NHL’s Dallas Stars. His Vancouver-based Northland company is behind the Sandman Hotel construction project underway on Lorne Street in downtown Kamloops across from Riverside Park. The file is due back in court on Aug. 16, at which time it is expected the accused parties will enter a plea. Savona is 35 kilometres west of Kamloops on the Trans-Canada Highway.

Water usage is down, despite blistering temps By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Despite a recent wave of heat, water usage is down in the City of Kamloops. Utilities services manager Michael Firlotte said between 93 and 95 million litres of water are being used per day in the city this month, compared to between 125 and 130 million litres a day in past Julys. Though temperatures have hovered in the low-to-mid 30s during the past week, Firlotte
It appears as though Kamloopsians are retsricting unlimited water usage to water parks, such as the popular splash attraction in Riverside Park. KTW photo
said the dismal weather that preceded the heat wave probably has something to do with the drop in water usage. “Our weather had been miserable in June,
so people’s minds weren’t exactly on watering,” he said. However, Firlotte believes the city’s ongoing water-meter installation program likely
played a bigger role in getting residents to cut back. “We’ve seen reductions in flows over the last three years from where we were,” he said. When we first opened the plant, it would have been an easy 130, 135 [million litres] at this time of year, and every year you see it dwindle down a little bit more.” Though the city isn’t yet billing people based on the meters, Firlotte said their presence is likely enough to get people thinking about
responsible water use. “We’re hoping that’s the trend that will continue,” he said. “Even when we had the word out there for water meters, we did see a small drop.”

Father describes normal life pre-bus driver X From A1
Pearce read from one message, sent by Hanson to the girl: “So, why were you so quiet and not there for me when I said have a good long weekend, and sat in the middle of the bus? . . . Know this — do not play with what I can and wish to give to you.” Court heard police in another province are now investigating Hanson for harassment relating to his involvement with that teen. Pearce said Hanson’s actions as a bus driver were out of line. “He was in a position of authority and trust,” she said. “He abused that position, I believe, to try to form relationships with [students].” Pearce went on to testify about Hanson’s past, which includes allegations of sexual and physical abuse from his stepdaughter. He was never charged.
The 15-year-old girl’s father also took the stand, describing a fairly normal family life prior to the commencement of Hanson’s music lessons. “We had no problems with [her],” he said. “The problems seem to have started when there were the music lessons with Merv.” The distraught dad said his daughter and Hanson bought each other “matching necklaces” — and he believed Hanson had plied her with alcohol on at least one occasion. Court heard the girl’s parents waited to contact police because they had no evidence of any wrongdoing, other than thinking the situation was “odd.” The girl’s father said he later found a cellphone bill showing multiple, lengthy phone conversations between his daughter and Hanson, conducted in the middle
of the night. “As a parent, any man contacting her at two in the morning — 59, 39, bus driver, not a bus driver — none of those are acceptable in our society,” the father said. “He’s a bus driver. You think everything’s OK. You think these guys go through some kind of checks. “It was inconceivable.” Entered as evidence was an apparently threatening text message from Hanson to the girl’s parents, sent in May. “I’m going to fight you with all I know and the truth,” it read. “I hope you have deep pockets. . . . I’ve been in court with the ministry before and beat them with their B.S. Ask them.” The hearing continued past KTW press time. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for updates.

Shining the light on perks afforded the public sector
HERE HAS BEEN MUCH debate over the provincial government’s net-zero mandate, the B.C. Liberals’ recent negotiating stance predicated on finding savings within existing provisions to fund any increases elsewhere. There has also been much complaining among public-sector unions. While net-zero was not an official mandate adopted at the municipal level, the annual one per cent to three per cent salary increases enjoyed by many city workers in B.C. in recent contracts are luxurious compared to what is happening in Scranton, Pa. The mayor of the city best known as the home of fictitious DunderMifflin Paper Company featured in the NBC comedy remake The Office has reduced wages of city employees to levels local paperboys and babysitters would reject. Mayor Christopher Doherty introduced the new hourly wage of $7.25 for police officers, firefighters, garbage collectors — and for himself. This is all part of the dilemma facing Scranton, which stares at a $16.8-million budget deficit. It’s either massive service cuts, a 78 per cent tax hike over three years or the pauper’s wage across the board. It’s ugly and the battle will eventually rage in the courts. Compared to Scranton, employees of Kamloops and other B.C. municipalities are living like royalty, according to a recent study conducted by the Independent Contractors and Businesses Association of B.C. (ICBA). The association looked at com-
CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom
MUSINGS pensation packages afforded city employees and found pay and benefits packages are an astonishing 30 to 40 per cent higher than that given workers doing identical jobs in the private sector. Take Kamloops, for example, where city workers enjoy dental, medical, extended-health and group lifeinsurance benefits courtesy of you, the taxpayer. Did you know Kamloops’ city workers don’t pay a dime toward their benefits package? It is funded 100 per cent by taxpayers. Why, when virtually every private company has an employee/employerpay structure? Did you know Kamloops workers are afforded 18 sick days a year and that, upon retirement, they can cash in up to 120 accumulated sick days? That’s six months’ pay for doing nothing but show up at work, as we are expected to do. It’s outrageous — all of it. When the contract expires at the end of 2013, it will be interesting to see if the powers-that-be at city hall
will acknowledge how out-of-control municipal pay-and-benefits packages have become. ICBA president Philip Hochstein is on the mark when he sums it up: “These gold-plated pay and perk packages are the main reason why city hall never turns around to tell you your taxes are going down. “What’s unfair about the situation is you’re being asked to send more money to the taxman off your paycheque to subsidize increases so civic workers can get pay and pension richer than yours.” The Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF) concurs when looking at the rising disparity in pay and benefits between the public and private sectors. The CTF notes that, in the past 10 years, the average government worker has seen their pay jump by 35 per cent to $1,023 a week. The average privatesector worker, meanwhile, has seen their pay increase by less than 30 per cent, to $777 a week. Nine out of 10 government employees have workplace pension plans, the CTF notes, while two out of 10 private sector workers have plans, with 81 per cent of government employees enjoying defined (guaranteed income regardless of investment performance) plans, compared to only 14 per cent of private-sector workers enjoying the more-expensive benefit. The structure is not sustainable and not fair to those funding it — taxpayers living on the fiscal edge more and more each year. email@example.com
We applaud the latest move by the provincial government to start the process of freeing up trade in wine between Canada’s provinces. It was, perhaps, naive to have thought that once the federal government eliminated its 1928 prohibition on shipping wines between the provinces, consumers would be able to freely ship their favourite wines between provinces. Instead, jealous of their prerogatives, many provinces responded to the eagerly awaited change, either with regulations nearly as restrictive as the nowdefunct prohibition-era law, or by setting up committees to study what they should do. Even B.C., where both the ruling B.C. Liberal Party and the opposition NDP had spoken out in favour of eliminating the federal prohibition, government responded to the news that Parliament had passed Bill C-311 with regulations limiting the quantity of wine a person could bring into the province, and outright forbidding Internet sales and shipping. That has changed with Rich Coleman, minister responsible for liquor, announcing B.C. was opening its borders to tariff-free direct shipping of wines for personal consumption, as long as they were grown and produced in the shipping province. The province can only regulate incoming shipments, so B.C. wineries are still unable to ship to other provinces; while it may have taken a few weeks — really, moving very quickly for government — B.C. has boldly stepped away from the pack. “We encourage other jurisdictions to take immediate steps to reciprocate by opening up their borders and allow all Canadians to order wine over the Internet,” Coleman said. “British Columbia is prepared to take the lead on opening up the Canadian marketplace for our world-renowned B.C. wineries.” We can only hope B.C.’s leadership in this area will encourage other provinces to recognize the realities and opportunities of living in an wired world and begin to lower the barriers on their sides of the border.

Good candidate, wrong party
An abused child will grow up to become an abuser TODD STONE: Seeking B.C. Liberal nod in Kamloops-South Thompson.
Editor: Re: (‘Candidate confident Libs won’t be Stone cold,’ July 12): Newcomer Todd Stone has an impressive resume, so I can understand why disheartened B.C. Liberal MLAs are happy to see him jump aboard as they desert the ship. The problem is he is not a good fit for the discredited B.C. Liberal Party. Concerning the proposed Ajax mine, Stone would like to “. . . get the facts . . . report back and make an informed decision . . .” This is an admirable plan, but I can foresee it being easily sidetracked by a party that has a history of not communicating with the voters. Instead, our government makes decisions in the interests of corporations in the hope any jobs created will result in the trickle-down effect, giving workers a piece of the pie. Unfortunately, this plan has not worked in North America for a very long time; rather, we see a growing gap between the rich and the people making them so. Stone should understand the B.C. Liberals are 100 per cent behind any endeavour that will increase the tax base after having cut corporate taxes by an additional two per cent to only 10 per cent this past year. They just have to find a way to sell it to the citizens or, failing that, they must appear as environmentally responsible as possible — even at the last minute, when all of the evidence is in and the decision becomes a no-brainer. Stone is mistaken, however, if he believes the NDP is anti-industry. It is not. The NDP is pro-industry, but is not as quick to damage the environment to make a buck as the so-called “free-enterprise” parties. Stone is a good candidate, but he will not be running for the right party. P. Nelson Kamloops
Editor: Re: (‘Court to decide whether this spanking was a criminal act,’ July 12): I am angry, angry because our species just doesn’t get it that abuse is abuse. We just don’t get it that children have rights and spanking a three-yearold is absolute crazy. I can still hear her screams as I write. I can still see her struggling to get a breath as the terror envelopes her. The child has no defence and certainly little understanding when extreme force is used to set “educational” boundaries. Leaving welts on a child that last for a week is criminal. Justifying the act of abuse and not taking any responsibility is criminal. Not being able to express compassion and empathy for a child embarking on a life filled with lots of expression and personality development is criminal. Such acts of abuse need to have a punishment set for the adult offender that sends a clear message. The Supreme Court of Canada refused to repeal Section 43 of the Criminal Code. Instead, it offered advice on parenting children. What it said was parents may spank within “reasonable limits” and take “corrective force” against children between the ages of two and 12. Study after study show abused children abuse. Think what it must be like for a child to receive punishment from an adult who towers above them. The child loses their voice to express feelings and emotions. The child buries those inside as trauma. The child learns no expression of self is what love must represent.
Leaving welts and handprints on a precious child is not “reasonable”; it is abusive and criminal. The court said it was unacceptable to hit a child with an object, like a belt or paddle. Blows and slaps to the child’s head would also be unacceptable. Is not the human hand striking a child with adult muscle and angered force behind it also an object? There are many, many other ways to conduct communication and consequences with our children. Education and materials are available. The smart, conscientious parent takes the time to grow and change. I hope the courts address this assault. The offender needs education if it is practical. For a time, he needs to have supervision. There may be cultural interferences to consider as well. We need to do everything we can to protect this child from further abuse. I solicit all of us to stand up for the end of abuse. We need to stop abusing our children, our wives, our husbands, our employees, our friends and our animals. Also, cloaking women in a burqas, restricting and cocooning them away from the full breath of light and life, simply isn’t justified in this free country. At times, our cultural control of women is also abusive. Think before you act. Put yourself in the position of the person receiving the action. We all deserve the opportunity to express our voice and develop our sense of self without having someone restrict our essence. Dennis Paget Kamloops
Mayor Peter Milobar should have said something Editor: Re: (‘Mayor taking heat from nurses’ union for comments he did not make,’ July 11): Your headline has nailed the issue at the heart of this debate. Mayor Peter Milobar was quoted in the Kamloops Daily News on July 9 as follows: “If you look at RIH, the No. 1 complaint is parking.” That article also cited Milobar saying improvements to Royal Inland Hospital
didn’t factor into last year’s civic election and that “there’s been very little from the public as far as rallying around that every time I mention it.” In the KTW article of July 11, Milobar is quoted as saying: “Nowhere in the article did I say anything about overcrowding in the hallways.” That is the point entirely. Despite many media stories that reflect the daily struggles of nurses who are trying to provide safe care for their patients
every day at RIH, often with too few staff and in hallways or other inappropriate spaces, the mayor said nothing. I would invite the mayor to come and speak directly with me and other nurses at RIH so, in the future, he can speak out effectively for safer patient care, as well as for parking needs at the facility.

Raising pay issue — again By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
Kamloops-Thompson school district trustees aren’t getting a raise — not yet, anyway. At the board of education’s regular meeting of July 9, trustees voted to table a motion proposing 8.6 per cent pay hikes for trustees. But, the issue — which also proposed raises of 7.7 per cent for vice-chair and 7.6 per cent for chair — is not over yet. Board chairwoman Denise Harper said she plans to add the motion to the agenda of a trustee workshop later this summer, but not because she’s looking for a raise.
Harper is worried stagnant salaries could create problems for the school district in the future — if other districts keep increasing their trustee remuneration. And, she’s not alone. Trustee Gerald Watson also expressed his concern with leaving trustee compensation as is. The Kamloops-Thompson school district has a policy on the books requiring an annual review — at the end of each school year — of pay rates for trustees in 10 comparable districts. From those numbers, the policy dictates, trustees should find the middle ground and adjust salaries as necessary.
Last year, because of ongoing education-sector labour issues and a lagging economy, the district broke from policy and chose not to increase salaries. This year, Watson said, it appears the same thing is going to happen again. “I’m comfortable with the pay rate I have right now,” he told KTW. “But, I’m uncomfortable just leaving it. “From a policy perspective, I don’t think it’s a great idea.” Watson said future boards could be left in the lurch. “The policy was set up in order to keep us out of the position of being out of step with the other school districts,” he said.
Local trustees sit mid-pack in remuneration By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
As it stands, Kamloops-Thompson school district trustees are in the middle of the pack among comparable B.C. boards when it comes to pay — fifth out of the 10 districts with enrolment numbers between 10,000 and 20,000. The Abbotsford school district tops the list, current as of July 1, 2012, paying its trustees $21,000 — still more than the proposed $20,027 proposed for KamloopsThompson trustees. (Abbotsford’s board chair is paid $26,000, while its vice-chair receives $23,500.) Even if the school district adopts the trustee pay hikes, the board would only move up one spot in the rankings of compa-
rable districts — from fifth to fourth. The Delta school district is second on the list, paying its trustees $20,933 per year, followed by Langley ($20,110) and North Vancouver ($19,776). KamloopsThompson comes in fifth at $18,445. The bottom five are Maple Ridge ($18,207), Chilliwack ($18,000), Greater Victoria ($17,424), Nanaimo-Ladysmith ($15,382) and Prince George ($14,000). The KamloopsThompson school district is sixth among the 10 comparable districts in full-time equivalent student enrollment, at 14,631. On a per-student basis, SD73 is tied for fourth of the 10 districts when it comes to trustee pay, with each

trustee earning $1.26 per student each year. North Vancouver trustees earn the same annual amount per student. Chilliwack’s board members make the most per student per year, at $1.37. That district’s FTE enrolment, 13,150, is also the smallest of the 10 comparables. Greater Victoria trustees make the least per student per year, at $0.91 — the only district of the 10 with a per-student figure under $1. Prince George is the next closest, at $1.02. If adopted, the trustee pay hike would cost the school district an additional $14,103 per year — money that has already been worked into the 2012-2013 operating budget.

Miss Kamloops seeking B.C. crown By Michael Potestio
Acacia Schmietenknop (centre) was Miss Kamloops in 2008-2009. Next month, she is seeking a provincial crown. KTW file photo
The B.C. Ambassador Program will have three new representatives come August — and local candidate Acacia Schmietenknop wants to make sure the Tournament Capital makes the grade. Schmietenknop, 20, was Miss Kamloops in 2008-2009 and wants to build on her experience, represent the River City and serve as a role model for youth at a provincial level through this program. She said a big part of being selected includes going to community events — both locally and provincially — to promote one’s community and the province. Schmietenknop said she enjoyed her time as Miss Kamloops and feels she has matured a lot since then. Win or lose, she
said the opportunity to gain more experience as an ambassador and represent Kamloops is one she won’t pass up. “Just the opportunity to represent Kamloops again is really important to me because I love Kamloops,” Schmietenknop said. The B.C. Ambassador Program is open to those who have previously been an ambassador or held a title of royalty and are between the ages of 17 and 23. The program aims to help promote youth and foster leadership skills through its mandate of education,
motivation and selfesteem. Schmietenknop is entering her third year of business administration at Thompson Rivers University. She hopes to one day start her own business and become an entrepreneur. The ambassador programs teach people how to be independent and network themselves, Schmietenknop said, noting the skills she has learned will be beneficial to her and her career goals. They also help to build on strengths and improve on weaknesses, she said. “It’s so much about
personal development and really nurturing young leaders,” Schmietenknop said, noting she used much of what she learned as Miss Kamloops when she ran for a school-trustee seat in the November 2011 municipal election., Without being involved in that program, Schmietenknop said she would never have sought public office. The B.C. Ambassador Program pageant takes place on Aug. 17 and Aug. 18 in Merritt. Candidates will be judged on their knowledge of B.C., on their public speaking, on their presentation skills, on a talent and on a personal interview with judges.
Introducing Kamloops’ new royalty . . . Kamloops has a new trio of royalty as the 2012 Miss Kamloops and princesses have been crowned. On the weekend, Alyssa Redmile was crowned Miss Kamloops, while Mikayla Russell and Kennedie Maidment were crowned princesses. Program vicepresident Acacia Schmientenknop said the three girls put in a lot of hard work during their candidacies and have
certainly raised the bar for the program. “These three girls, their dedication to the program throughout their candidacy was amazing, so I feel like they’re going to bring that dedication into their reign,” Schmietenknop said. The newly crowned Miss Kamloops said the feeling of being selected is one that’s almost indescribable. “There was such a great group of candidates,” Redmile said. “All the girls were
amazing. It really could have been anyone and, when they called my name, it was amazing. “I was so happy. You can’t even describe the feeling of how excited you are, that your jour-
ney gets to continue. You don’t just end your candidacy; you get to go on a full year. It’s amazing.” This weekend, they travel to Quesnel to take in that pageant as it will crown Miss Quesnel.

Arrests part of fraud ring? By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
The trio of men arrested in downtown Kamloops this month was cruising the Interior with 45 fraudulent credit cards and a list of B.C. electronics stores, a judge heard during a July 13 court appearance. Sergey Kaspirovych, 23, Artyum Pasternak, 24, and 29-year-old Dennis Ranuk are each charged with counts of fraud over $5,000, possession of stolen property over $5,000, identity theft, obstructing a peace officer and dealing with an identity document without excuse. Kamloops Mounties referred to them as “Russians: following their arrest, but two of the men — Kaspirovych and Ranuk — are actually Ukrainian. Pasternak is originally from St. Petersburg, Russia. They appeared in Kamloops provincial court for a bail hearing, during which time the Crown outlined its case. The men were arrested on Thursday, July 5, after staff at
the Lansdowne Village London Drugs called Mounties to report suspicious activity. Crown prosecutor Chris Balison said London Drugs’ regional security team flagged the men after two incidents at other stores earlier in the day — one in Kelowna and one in Vernon. When officers entered the downtown Kamloops store, court heard, Pasternak took off on foot inside the store. He was eventually subdued by police. Kaspirovych was also inside the store, Balison said, and he took off running outside. He is alleged to have dropped a handful of phoney credit cards down a sewer grate as he fled. He was arrested moments later. Mounties found Ranuk in the parking lot, court heard — along with a grocery bag full of credit cards, that list of B.C. electronics stores and a stolen laptop and camera. “Inside the vehicle, there were some 45 credit cards — Visa, MasterCard and American Express — in

names other than the accused,” Balison said. “These three individuals seem fairly organized in how they were going about this. “It appears they were going from town to town in what I’ll call a criminal enterprise, buying high-end electronics for their own personal gain.” Court heard a search of the car, registered in Ranuk’s name, linked the men to a similar fraud at a Vision’s Electronics store in Kelowna. Balison asked Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame to detain the trio, given the fact none of them live in B.C. Each of the men has been in Canada for a number of years, court heard. Kaspirovych, who lives in Quebec, even became a Canadian citizen in 2004. Ranuk is a landed immigrant, and told court he is going into his second year in the University of Calgary’s engineering faculty. Pasternak, meanwhile, was ordered
deported in 2008 due to “criminality,” court heard. Balison said that deportation was stayed for a five-year period to give the Montreal resident a chance to “rehabilitate.” He has a criminal record dating back to 2005, including convictions for robbery and assault causing bodily harm. Frame agreed to release Ranuk and Kaspirovych on $2,000 cash bail, but ordered Pasternak be detained. Defence lawyer Sheldon Tate told court it will likely take days for Ranuk and Kaspirovych to come up with the cash to secure their release. They will be bound by conditions barring them from possessing any credit cards in names other than their own and forbidden from entering any London Drugs or Vision’s Electronics stores in B.C., in addition to a strict curfew. All three are due back in court on Aug. 7, at which time it’s expected they will enter pleas.

LOCAL NEWS NOW PLAYING Families relax under the sky to watch The Lorax, the first of three free movies being shown at Riverside Park throughout the summer. Next up is E.T. on Thursday, July 19, with the series wrapping up on Thursday, Aug. 16, with Shrek. The screenings are free, but a donation of $3 per person or $10 for a family of 4 is suggested. Money raised goes to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Kamloops and Region. This is the second year the moviesin-the-park event has been sponsored by Interior Savings for the agency. A three-storey inflatable screen is used. Before the movies begin at dusk, there are family-oriented activities. Nearby at the west end of the park, there’s also Music in the Park, with a different performer taking the stage at the Rotary Bandshell nightly at 7 p.m. On the E.T. night, country-rock band Cold Creek Boys performs. On the Shrek night, it’s the Maritime funk of Cod Gone Wild. Christopher Foulds/KTW

Local, Buy Local! Zack’s Coffee
“It’s very exciting,” says Andrew Blackwell, who along with his family, recently took ownership of Zack’s coffee. “When Zack’s started, it was ahead of its time. It really established itself in the community as the place to go, to get your coffee and tea.” Starting in 1993, Zack’s began roasting its high-end blends of coffee on-site, at the 4th and Victoria location. Over the years, the beans have developed a loyal following, which Blackwell attributes to the freshness of the product. “The ability to roast in the morning and then get it to the shelves is an undeniable advantage. It’s the advantage of being local. “Cooper’s understands the importance of local food,” says Blackwell. “Their support is very important to Zack’s and it’s been that way from the start.” He adds, “We are proud to carry our products in Coopers stores and we look forward to working together in the community with them.”

All the world’s a stage And Prince Charles Park is about to become one, too By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
For her first professional gig directing a play, Melissa Thomas has some unique challenges. She has to make a giant peach roll. She needs to make sure the ants get squished and the earthworm’s tail moves. She’s got to stage an underwater scene and have seagulls flying by. All this in Prince Charles Park. “Things are coming together,” the longtime member of Project X Theatre of rehearsals for James and the Giant Peach, one of two plays being performed this year during X Fest. The other is Romeo and Juliet. “It’s been interesting,” Thomas said of coming up with creative ways of ensuring some of the more fanciful scenes occur without destroying the illusion of theatre for the audience — but she’s confident the magic will be there when the play opens o Wednesday, July 18. The two plays alternate nights to Saturday, Aug. 11. There’s also a matinee performance of James at 1 p.m. that day. The production reflects Project X’s decision to offer family theatre at its annual event, in addition to the traditional Shakespeare. XSee CREATING A19

Creating the magic a challenge XFrom A17
And, itâ€™s worked, said costume designer Marian Truscott. Last year, Munsch Ado About Nothing, based on the stories of Robert Munsch, saw a younger demographic heading to the park at the corner of Columbia Street and 11th Avenue. Adding the Roald Dahl classic this year will likely see more young teens coming out, Truscott said â€” but their parents, who have likely read the book, will want to be there, too. Thomas praised
set designer Mark Anderson for coming up with innovative ways to ensure the more difficult scenes happen. â€œHe sees me coming and he just gets this look on his face,â€? she said, â€œbut he makes it happen.â€? One of Andersonâ€™s innovations this year is building part of the set to revolve. Thomas said the costumes alone are worth the price of admission to James. Itâ€™s kept her busy, Truscott said, creating costumes for a grasshopper, a spider, a centipede, a ladybug,
an earthworm, as well as James, Aunt Sponge and Aunt Spiker. Some puppetry is involved as well â€” after all, the centipede has 38 legs and most of them have to move independently. And, those seagulls are going to need a bit of help, too. The same set of actors performs both plays â€” which sees Curtis Tweedie going from young James to the evil Tybalt in Romeo and Juliet. â€œOne night, Iâ€™m an innocent young boy with high hopes and dreams and a huge

imagination,â€? Tweedie said â€œand then, Iâ€™m this knife-wielding guy.â€? This is Tweedieâ€™s first time with X Fest â€” he discovered producer Derek Rein was in Vancouver doing auditions and headed over. Heâ€™s never acted outdoors in a setting like the tents and bleachers at the park, â€œbut I love it. Itâ€™s back to the roots of theatre, like the Globe.â€? The Globe Theatre was home to many of Shakespeareâ€™s plays and was also an openair, amphitheatre-style venue. The repertory theatre has grown since its beginnings nine years ago, Truscott said, but this year is unique because itâ€™s â€œthe first time Project X has done two really big shows.â€? Itâ€™s a natural growth, Rein said, just as expanding the target market to include families simply made sense. In addition to increasing the demographics, it helps expose young people to theatre, something Rein believes is a key goal for Project X. Tweedie is excited to see his first open-air audience when James kicks off the festival. â€œYou know, with video games and cellphones and all that stuff, itâ€™s good to get out and have our imaginations challenged once in a while,â€? he said. â€œAnd, this play hugely lends itself to the imagine of the audience.â€?

Looking for beauty in Suzuki’s beast
HAD A DATE WITH A MONSTER. OK, maybe not a fair characterization of Suzuki’s M109R. Frankly, I’d booked this bike simply to fill a gap between other tests. When it comes to heavyweight cruisers, well, I’ve been there and done that. I’ve wrestled their unnecessary mass through city streets and country corners, fought the weight in parking lots and have zero interest in peeing contests over “mine is bigger than yours.” To be fair, my attitude might also have been based on a little twinge of unease, remembering my last ride on an M109R — the power, the roar, an ignorant twist of the wrist and the way the bike tried to leave without me. So, this motorcycle deserved at least an unbiased opportunity to prove itself. ROB BEINTEMA The “M” doesn’t really First stand for “monDRIVE ster,” anyway. It stands for “muscle” and the unabashed power this bike promises within the Boulevard cruiser lineup. The “109” signifies engine size — 109 cubic inches or 1,783 cc. And the “R” hints at GSX-R influences because, despite the vast differences between Gixxers and cruisers, the M109R reaps some of the fuel-injected performance benefits and braking lessons from race-derived sportbike technology. The M109R has an over-the-top style all its own — the hunkered-down stance, distinctive shrouded headlamp, wide tank, fat quarters and huge rear tire. This particular 2012 M109R Limited Edition model came in the new metallic triton blue, contrasted by a glass splash white stripe running the length of the bike. Limited Edition models bump the price up by $500 and also add blacked-out wheels and white lenses on the signal lamps and LED taillight. It’s not hard to find beauty in this beast and the bike looks impressive from any quarter, although the white stripe almost disappears in a side view, shifting to a black and blue profile. Which led to the wild thought that, hmm, white wheels might make a nice match to this colour combo. The Limited Edition is also available in glass sparkle black, striped with candy max orange.
Throw a leg over and you slide into a seat that is low (705 millimetres) and wide. The seat itself is easy to take over the long haul, but I’m not sure I can say the same about the riding posture. With feet forward and arms stretched straight out, it feels more like the position for giving birth, which I hear can also be somewhat of an uncomfortable experience. Seating is OK on smoother stretches but, over frost heaves and railroad crossings, your spine becomes part of the suspension. But, I’m getting ahead of myself. Slip the key into the traditional enginemounted ignition, thumb the starter and the motor explodes into life. Huge 112-millimetre forged aluminumalloy pistons, two of the largest engine pistons
being used in any production passenger car or motorcycle, start banging up and down with glee. At idle, the mechanical, almost locomotivelike “chuff-a-chuff” comes up and into your helmet. But, if the thought of one-litre paint cansized pistons exploding under your nether parts gives you pause, all is soon forgotten when you twist the throttle and ride. Motorcycle companies don’t tend to hand out power stats but other sources have quoted 127 horsepower and torque ratings that vary from 90 to 110 pound-feet. I might have been a little tentative remembering my earlier experience but fear evaporates with familiarity. Suzuki spent a lot of time and effort opti-
mizing power and sound with the digitally controlled SET (Suzuki exhaust tuning) system that blasts a bellow through a two-intoone-into-two stainless-steel chromed pipes, occasionally setting off a chorus of car alarms. Stomping the lever into first thunks the bike forward with impatience. Accelerate away and it pulls easily up to 80 k/ph before redlining at 7,500 r.p.m. Second gear blips to highway speed and beyond before you work into the higher cogs. When you’re working through the gears, the sound out of the back rips, snorts and occasionally burbles like it’s submerged under water. In fifth gear, the engine settles into easy cruising mode at around 3,000 r.p.m. XSee M109R A23

With this kind of torque, fifth will handle anything from 70 km/h and up and gear selection becomes almost optional. Clutch pull is relatively light, but I would often skip-shift and toot around town in just second and fourth. Cockpit instrumentation is well laid-out in retro style. A digital tachometer with the gear-selection readout and assorted idiot lights sits atop the headlight cowl. A tank-mounted analogue speedo has the fuel

Bonus points for two features that should be on every bike — gear-selection indicator and fuel gauge, although the fuel readout was not exactly linear, showing full five bars until 180 kilometres. I refuelled at 250 kilometres with two bars showing, for a potential range of 325 kilometres.

about the M109R, but its brazen muscularity, honest power and boisterous exuberance can’t help but win you over. The current muscle bike trend started with the turn of the millennium. Critics might say the segment has shot its bolt, with the recent demise of Honda’s VTX1800 series and, like the muscle-car era, it is probably just a recurring blip on the evolutionary radar screen. But, bikes like these are still desired by “bigger is better” fans. And, they are almost

Time in the water equals time on the podium for Classics
PICKS OF THE WEEK!
By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
Pruney fingers and bloodshot eyes are symptoms of success for the Kamloops Classic Swimming club. Three years ago, head coach Brad Dalke and the Classics decided to demand more from themselves — and it’s paying off. “It didn’t really ever have anything to do with being more competitive or winning more,” Dalke said of the programming changes, which increased the number of hours the Classics spent in the water. “It was all about having a lifestyle that’s conducive to being an athlete.” As it turns out, the Classics — by design or not — are reaching new heights and they have the numbers to prove it. Eighteen Kamloops swimmers — the most in club history — qualified for the Canadian Age Group Championships (for boys 18 and under and girls 17 and under), which run from from July 25 to July 30 in Calgary. In comparison, Dalke expects Nanaimo — a city with a population and swim-club size similar to Kamloops — to send “six or seven kids” to age-group nationals. “When you look at our numbers, we’re

starting to get into the same area as a lot of the Lower Mainland clubs and Calgary and Edmonton clubs.” The Classics will send nine swimmers to the B.C. Summer Games, July 19 to July 22 in Surrey, and one member to senior national championships (open age category), July 19 to July 22 in Edmonton. Perhaps there is no one more qualified to speak about the advancement of the club than 16-yearold Shaina Kloska, a Classic since she was seven. “We started training more and we started doing more things out of the water,” said Kloska, who hopes to qualify for senior nationals next year. “It really encouraged kids because they started getting faster
Schmidt contends at Canada Cup Kamloops Gymnastics Trampoline Centre athlete Emily Schmidt competed at the Canada Cup from Thursday, July 12, to Sunday, July 15, at the Langley Events Centre.
She placed seventh on the trampoline and fourth on the doublemini in the Novice division, comprised of 11to 14-year-old girls. It was Schmidt’s first national-level event.
because they were stronger.” Dalke began enforcing a minimum 75 per cent attendance rate and started incorporating dryland workouts — with strength and conditioning coach David Stride — into the training regime. Most of the Classics easily eclipse the 75 per
cent mark and attend more than 90 per cent of practices. “For example, our 14-year-olds are training 13 to 15 hours in the water per week and another couple hours of dryland,” Dalke said. “We’re in the middle of summer holidays and I’ve got 25 kids training with me.
That’s exceptional.” The Classics will get some time off in August, but are encouraged to continue training in the off-season. “The commitment level of the kids has increased significantly,” Dalke said. “I think the fruits of our labour are finally starting to pan out.”

A long and rocky Randonneurs’ ride By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
Ultra-distance cyclists from across the globe will use the Kamloops Curling Club as a starting and finishing point for the Rocky Mountain 1,200 Kilometre. The B.C. Randonneurs Cycling Club-hosted race gets underway in the Tournament Capital at 10 p.m. on Sunday, July 22, for those who choose to ride the distance in 90 hours or less. Cyclists who opt to complete the race in 84 hours or less leave the
River City at 4 a.m. on Monday, July 23. “The inspiring thing about Randonneur events is there are riders of all ages,” said Shawn Wenger, a first-time Rocky Mountain 1,200 rider. “Many of the veterans have done these distances multiple times and are a wealth of knowledge and inspiration.” Riders from across the globe — including Germany, Japan, Austria, Brazil, Italy, the United Kingdom, Denmark, Belgium and the Netherlands, as well as the U.S. and Canada — will pedal to Jasper
and down the Icefields Parkway to Lake Louise before returning west to Golden, Revelstoke, Armstrong, Salmon Arm, Westwold and back to Kamloops. The race — which happens once every four years — will be complete by 4 p.m. on Thursday, July 26. Riders are exposed to some of the most beautiful scenery and wildlife in Western Canada, according to a Rocky Mountain press release. “Just qualifying has been a challenge for me,” said Wenger, who completed 200-, 300-, 400- and 600-kilometre treks en route
to qualification. “Now, the 1,200 is going to require completely different strategy, planning, sleep and nutrition over three-plus days of riding. I am equal parts excited and terrified.” Registration for the event is closed, with 115 riders set to compete, but race organizer Ali Holt said emailed entry requests will
be considered. Email Holt at email@example.com to inquire about registration. Richard Blair, Ian Fillinger and Bud MacRae, along with Chris Wenger, Shawn’s husband, are the participating Kamloops riders. Bob Goodison from Sorrento and Randy Benz from Vernon are also riding.

He set a new junior world record with an 85.57-metre throw. The second-place finisher was Bence Pasztor of Hungary. He threw 76.74 metres.

GRANDE, (SPINA) VINCENZA
On July 13, 2012, Eleanor Giddens (nee Bordignon) passed away peacefully at Ridgeview Lodge with her family by her side. Eleanor was born on June 20, 1921 in Kamloops. She was predeceased by her loving husband Dennis in February 2006, her parents, Amalia and Antonio Bordignon, brother Vincent and sisters Elsie, Emma and Evelyn.

She was also very active in her church and as a volunteer in her community, including Past President of the Catholic Women’s League. Her most important devotion was to her family. She especially enjoyed the summers spent with her children at the family cabin at Shuswap Lake. The family wishes to thank the caring staff at Ponderosa and Ridgeview Lodges and Dr. Mike Wilson.
She was born December 17, 1930 in Casteselano, Italy and went to be with the Lord on July 12, 2012. She was a resident of Kamloops since 1960 and her passion was family.

Deeply Missed Forever Loved
I found a penny today, Just laying on the ground But it’s not just a penny, This little coin I’ve found. “Found” pennies come from heaven, That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down; Oh, how I loved that story. He said when an angel misses you, They toss a penny down Sometimes just to cheer you up, Make a smile out of your frown So don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue It may be a penny from heaven That an angel tossed to you..
The Little Unicorn by Peggy Kociscin,Albuquerque, New Mexico
passed July 18, 2011
But, as he grew and learned of life, The sparkle in his eye Grew misty as he realized Just what it means to cry.
The unicorn tried tirelessly, And gave the climb his best; But he felt it was not good enough, He felt he’d failed the test.
He learned that there are shadows In spite of shining sun. The more he grew, he found that life Was never always fun.
He could not understand it When he felt himself rejected – When all his gentle being asked Was but to be accepted.
For now he’d learn of feelings That come from deep within; No longer in the “dream world” Where (for so long) he’d been.
All this was just too much for him, He knew not what to do. That he was special as himself, Somehow, he never knew.
His gentle heart desired But to know the pleasure of To give and to receive The very precious gift of love.
He laughed and played with rainbows, So happy all day through, He loved to kiss the flowers As their petals shone with dew.
His spirit crushed, he felt defeated, And lonely tears would start. Not understanding how to love, It simply broke his heart.
To love meant to be happy, And yet it also brought him pain; For those he loved could hurt him Again.. and yet again.
He wandered through the meadows In the moon’s soft, silver light. He loved to gaze at all the stars That lightened up the night.
His mother held him lovingly And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... The lonely, bitter tears.
But now he’s in a loving place Where all his pain has ceased, Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace.
He listened to the music Of the birds that graced the trees. He frolicked with the butterflies And raced the gentle breeze.
She said, “Life is like a mountain, (And surely this is true) That we must climb as best we can. There’s no ‘around or ‘through.’”
There lived a little unicorn (From when the earth was new), His coat so white it glistened, His eyes a sparkling blue.
MICHAEL J. KITTO
Pennies From Heaven
Dad, Papa It has been a year since you’ve been gone, and we still miss your big smile, kind spirit and unconditional love you gave to us all. You will be in our hearts forever, always adored and never forgotten. Dianne & Ernie Connlley and Family Lorna & Morris Prokop and Family
John H. Wiersema May 8, 1949-July 18, 2011
Death leaves a heart ache no one can heal. Love leaves a memory no one can steal.
Breakthrough by Nel de Keijzer, Santa Barbara, California The tears of grief have washed away The clouds of sorrow, aAnd vision now is clarified I miss you still, but see you new in light of joy And smile at your remembrance. The love we shared still here to give And to experience The joy that comes from that, IS YOU!!
In innocence and beauty, He danced through woods and streams. The animals danced with him, His heart aglow with dreams.
A loving Being tells him, “You’re delightful as you are.” His spirit free, his brilliance now Outshines the brightest star!
