NO LEGAL FUNDING HAS MOUNTIES WORRIED By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The staff association representing the RCMP’s 20,000 officers across Canada is concerned with Ottawa’s decision to deny legal funding for three Kamloops Mounties facing serious criminal charges. RCMP Cpl. Rick Brown, constables Stephen Zaharia and Evan Elgee, along with municipal jail guard David Tompkins, are each charged with breach of trust by a public officer, stemming from an alleged incident in the Kamloops RCMP’s cellblock
nearly two years ago. It is alleged the four men watched two female prisoners engage in a sex act via closed-circuit TV in the holding cells at the Kamloops RCMP’s Battle Street detachment on Aug. 18, 2010. The four accused had been slated to appear in Kamloops provincial court for a preliminary inquiry during two weeks in September but, at a brief hearing on Tuesday, July 24, those dates were set aside when the court was informed the three Mounties no longer had legal representation. No trial date has been set.
Lawyers representing the officers dropped the case when the RCMP decided it would not cover their legal fees. “We don’t have the written decision from the [RCMP] commissioner’s office yet, but that’s our understanding,” said Staff Sgt. Tom Almasi, E-Division Southeast District representative for the RCMP’s staff relations representative program. “It’s in his [RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson] authority to either support his members or not, and it appears he’s decided in this case he’s not.” Almasi said the decision is raising
red flags among officers in B.C. and across Canada. “It’s something that used to be extremely rare, but it’s becoming more and more common,” he said. “It’s concerning and potentially very damaging for our members.” Abe Townsend, at the RCMP staff relations representative program’s headquarters in Ottawa, said there is a process in place for Mounties to apply for legal-fee coverage when charged with a criminal offence. Lately, he said, more and more of those applications are being rejected. “It’s a trend that we’re seeing, that they’re being challenged more and
denied more frequently,” he said. “This has been something that’s been observed within this calendar year. It’s trending upward.” Almasi said he couldn’t get into specifics, but said there have been recent examples of similar denials on the part of the RCMP’s Ottawa headquarters across the country — in B.C., Alberta and Atlantic Canada. During a court appearance in June, Crown prosecutor Winston Sayson described surveillance footage of the alleged cellblock incident as “extremely, extremely explicit,” “pornographic” and “embarrassing.” X See QUARTET A10

Tournament Capital ready to bloom Communities in Bloom judges are coming to Kamloops from England and Belgium By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
With tough competition from Alberta, Singapore and Ireland, and just 48 hours to impress the 2012 Communities in Bloom judges, Kamloops organizers are cramming their schedules as full as they can. Judges for this year’s international challenge are in town on Monday, June 30, and Tuesday, 31, for a series of driving, walking and helicopter tours meant to showcase the best the city has to offer. “It’s two very long days,” said organizer Glenn Grant. On Monday, judges will hit
North Shore hotspots, including the showcase garden at MacDonald Park, the Tranquille Fresh Farm and MacArthur Island. They will tour the Kamloops Ranch slo-pitch park in Rayleigh via helicopter and stop in at the Kamloops Heritage Railway. And, that evening, they will be in Pioneer Park for the unveiling of a new sign commemorating the Red Bridge. “That’s Day 1 and we’ll have them just as busy on Day 2 with stuff on the South Shore,” Grant said. “Heritage homes, the museum and that kind of thing. They’ve got a really full two days of touring.” Kamloops has tradition-

ally done well in Communities in Bloom competitions, picking up a win in the international challenge in 2006. This year, Grant said, the group is feeling confident about its plans, in part because this year’s visiting judges, who hail from England and Belgium, have never visited the Kamloops area. “It is going to be really nice to take a couple judges from Europe and show them this is what a little desert town can do in our pretty dry climate and still make things very lush and attractive,” he said. Communities in Bloom will judge the city based on seven categories, including heritage conservation, tidiness and floral displays.
But, Grant said, the most important category is community participation. “When you’re doing floral displays, it’s not just about the city gardeners making things look nice, it’s about what are businesses doing to beautify their store fronts? What are residents doing to make their block the nicest block?” he said. “It’s such a whole gamut of stuff. It’s more than just flowers — way more than flowers.” For the international competition, the city is facing off against five other communities: Leduc, Alta.; Pembroke, Ont.; Ville de Rosemere, Que.; Killarney, Ireland and Singapore’s South West District.

Unlike a national competition, the size of the international community “kind of goes out the window” for the challenge, Grant said. Pembroke has a population of just over 14,000, while the South West District has about 730,000 residents. “It’s really nice to know how we stack up against European countries and those from all over the world,” Grant said. “It’s kind of a measuring stick to see how well we’re doing.” The route for this year’s judging is available for viewing on the city website at kamloops.ca/cib. This year’s winners will be announced on Oct. 13 at a ceremony in Edmonton.

The playground at Pacific Way elementary, and the playing field directly behind, has become a favoured spot for one Aberdeen man with a penchant for exposing himself. KTW file photo
Repeat ﬂasher has Mounties’ eyes wide open By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
Kamloops Mounties are hoping a tip from the public will shine a light on a man who has been exposing himself to kids at an Aberdeen school playground. RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said police were called to the playground at Pacific Way elementary at 7:45 a.m. on Tuesday, July 24,
after park users spotted a man drop his pants and underwear to his ankles and stand in a field facing the playground. He then pulled up his trousers and walked toward an area of picnic tables before disappearing from sight. The disturbing incident follows a similar circumstance last week, on the morning of Wednesday, July 18, when a man matching the same description dropped his pants
in the same area. That time, Learned said, the flasher was sitting at a picnic table. “Police are asking for public assistance in identifying this suspect, who they believe may reside in the Aberdeen area,” he said. “Investigators are also encouraging parents to accompany their children while they are playing in this location.” The suspect is described as
a dark-skinned male, possible native or South Asian, between 30 and 40 years of age. He is believed to have some facial hair. This week, he was reported to have been wearing white pants and a white hoodie. Last week, the clothing description included black sweatpants and a black baseball cap. Learned said the fact the manhas been gone by the time
officers arrived — both times — means he probably lives nearby. “It would suggest that he may be a resident in that vicinity,” Learned said. “If you see a person matching that description in that playground area, give us a call.” Anyone with information is asked to call Kamloops Mounties at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Tweaked Aberdeen plan still rankles some By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
It may have impressed Kamloops city council and staff, but the redesign of a proposed strata in Aberdeen isn’t winning points with residents living in the neighbourhood. About 25 people were at Aberdeen elementary on Monday, July 23, to raise concerns about the latest plan for 2171 Van Horne Dr., which developer Craftsman Ventures wants to rezone from church to multi-family use. The last rezoning application for the twohectare lot died at the public hearing stage in May, due to concerns about its effect on groundwater and stormwater in an already flood-prone area. But, when developers offered to tweak the design to use a more standard drainage system and reduce the number of buildings on site, council agreed to reconsider their decision without the usual sixmonth waiting period. A new rezoning hearing is set for Tuesday, July 31. The new design has a 24-unit apartment building and 34 units of duplexes and triplexes. Rob Gobelle of TRUE Consulting told residents the new drainage plan for the site will

see water redirected into a city gully east of the property, but also said the amount of water that will be added to the area because of the new development is “insignificant” compared to what is now draining into the neighbourhood from higher ground. Consultant Jane Mastin said because the development will intercept some of that water, it’s likely the strata would improve conditions for residents downhill. “We want you to realize it’s not all bad,” she told residents. “We are doing things to improve conditions for existing residents.” Mastin said the developer also plans to work with Aberdeen elementary to reduce the amount of moisture running off the property when its fields are watered. However, many at the meeting said the gully and culvert the
development plans to feed water into is already over-capacity and prone to backing up when it rains. “It’s a quarter-mile long and it’s not handling it well now,” said one man, noting he has had to clean out the culvert with his neighbours to keep things flowing during wet weather. Other residents also reported seeing overflows on their streets and worried directing more water into a stressed system would just make conditions worse on the hill. “It’s really bad,” one woman added. “We’re not just being alarmist. [When it rains] you’re standing out there with sandbags, just hoping. No kidding — sandbags.” But, Gobelle and
Mastin said, the city has assured them the gully can handle the extra flow and that their drainage system is designed to city standards. “I can’t make you happy with the city requirements,” Mastin said. Gordon Kermit, a Fleming Place resident who helped lead the charge against the development at the last public hearing, said the city should be doing more to allay the fears of those in the area. He suggested another public meeting — this one with city engineers. “Residents have concerns about stormwater and groundwater and there’s been no action by the city to try and help the residents understand what they’re
doing,” he said. “What we’re hearing is, ‘Don’t worry about it, because we’ve designed to the city standard,’ but, obviously, the city standard is inadequate.” Kermit, who collected more than 100 signatures on a petition against the project in May, said the Van Horne strata is still unpopular in the neighbourhood, but council’s decision to reconsider the project was a blow to morale. “It went down five to four last time,” he said of the council vote. “Three weeks later, the developer’s in with city council and they’ve got another public hearing. So, my confidence is not too high at all. “I think the animosity still exists, but I think people are giving up hope. The city wants this development, they want the infill, and it’s going to go through. That’s what I feel —
and my neighbours tell me the same thing.” The public hearing for 2171 Van Horne Dr. will take place on Tuesday, June 31, at 7 p.m. at the Kamloops Convention Centre.

‘Poverty’ in Canada is on the decline, but nobody notices
OU PROBABLY DIDN’T hear this on TV, but the percentage of Canadians deemed “low income” went down slightly in 2010, according to the latest Statistics Canada analysis. This news was delivered in the recent Income of Canadians annual report. The share of people who fall below the federal Low-Income CutOff (LICO) went from 9.5 per cent to 9.0. The CBC couldn’t bring itself to admit any actual improvement, reporting on its website that the number of people with “low income” was about three million, “virtually unchanged from 2009.” Other media outlets followed the unwritten rule that nothing remotely positive must be presented as news, particularly if it reflects positively on a right-wing government. This information likely won’t have any effect on the political discussion about “poverty” in B.C. The LICO survey will continue to be used as a measure of absolute poverty, despite the fact it isn’t. It’s a relative measure that will always designate the same share of people at the low end of the scale. BC Stats, the provincial equivalent of the federal agency, explained this problem in a special report last year. “To illustrate,” the report said, “take a hypothetical future Canada where every citizen earns no less than $100,000 (and assume there has not been rampant inflation in the meantime, such that buying power is not dissimilar to what exists
TOM FLETCHER Our Man in
VICTORIA today) and millionaires are common. “In that kind of Canada, those at the low end of the income scale (that is, those earning ‘merely’ $100,000) would be considered poor if LICOs were used as a measure of poverty.” Math aside, that’s the alleged “poverty line” routinely cited by the usual media authorities, like B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair. Sinclair campaigned for years to get the B.C. government to raise the minimum wage to $10 an hour. It did, in three increments, and, on May 1, it increased to $10.25 an hour. As soon as the series of three increases was announced last November, Sinclair called a news conference to announce it’s not enough. To get to the LICO level, the minimum wage should be $11.50 an hour, Sinclair said. Of course, if B.C. businesses ponied up for that, the goalposts would shift again and the same proportion of “poverty” would magically still exist.
The B.C. NDP government-inwaiting continues to demand an “action plan” on poverty, with annual goals. All the progressive provinces have one, which I guess is why poverty is all but eradicated in enlightened places like Manitoba. There are signs of the reality behind this political smokescreen. Here’s one: For what may be the first time in history, we now have a North American society where one of the most reliable indicators of poverty is obesity. This often gets explained away with a popular theory that poor people are somehow forced to eat fast food and drink pop because they can’t afford healthy food. People who advance this theory presumably don’t do much grocery shopping. There are plenty of processed, sugary, fat-laden choices at the supermarket, too. But there is also whole wheat bread, rice and fresh or frozen vegetables that are as cheap as anywhere in the world. Given basic cooking skills and some effort, it’s easy to demonstrate which diet is cheaper, as well as healthier. Most immigrants know this. Which diet you choose isn’t a function of money, but rather one of education and self-discipline. There is genuine poverty in our society. One of the things that’s needed is a useful way to define it. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps Premier Christy Clark sees a battle with Alberta — over revenue from allowing the Enbridge pipeline to use B.C. to link Alberta oil with tankers on the Pacific Ocean — as the last hope to rally voters in time for the spring 2013 election campaign. It stands to reason, since the B.C. NDP has staked the opposed-topipeline position and the B.C. Conservatives have claimed the support-withconditions spot. However, by demanding that B.C. receive oil royalties from profits made from what flows through the pipeline, Clark is simply catering to those who already support the Enbridge proposal. Those opposed — and they include First Nations along the proposed route from Alberta to Kitimat — have said loud and clear it is not about money, but about inevitable environmental damage. Grand Chief Edward John of the First Nations Summit political executive summed it up in a scathing press release of July 24, when he said the Clark B.C. Liberal government has missed the mark, stressing “B.C. First Nations’ traditional territories and pristine environment are not for sale.” John reminded Clark of the Supreme Court of Canada’s stance that there is a legal requirement for governments to “consult and accommodate” First Nations regarding any and all land and resource development initiatives in their respective territories. If First Nations cannot be convinced to allow a pipeline to be constructed through their territories — with or without scads of cash — the pipeline simply will not come to be. With Clark’s demand having been rejected by Alberta Premier Alison Redford, with First Nations still on the sidelines and with strong opposition among the public, perhaps it would be wise for Clark to add a nonbinding referendum question to the May 14, 2013 general election ballot. A simple question — Are you in favour of the Enbridge pipeline proposal? — could produce results that tell the government of the day exactly which direction it should travel on this pipeline proposal.

Reworking Sturgis North Editor: We went to the Harley Davidson Sturgis North bike event in Vernon last weekend. They said there would be about 30,000 bikers there. If there were 5,000, I would be surprised. Saturday was a perfect bike-ride day. I did not see lineups at any of the vendors, although there was lots to see and buy. For a $10 entrance fee at one gate, you could go to shop at some of them. Then there was a second gate to the main stand, with a $100 entrance fee to see more vendors. Separating the vendors was not a good idea. I wanted an ice cream and had to get it from the vendor
through the second gate after paying $100 to get in. I don’t think so! They trusted me to go and buy the cone and come back out — nice people. Riding on the back of America’s very popular Sturgis Rally in South Dakota is not a good idea. Every year, 600,000 or more bikers go to Sturgis. It is a huge event in a very small town. There are no admission fees in the general area of the town or to visit the vendors. The camps have a fee for staying there and that includes all the events, including bike acts, races, burnouts and the wet T-shirt contest. The camps have bands playing, people dancing, hot-dog stands
and beer gardens. It works very much like Hot Nite in the City is operated in Kamloops. The town even has a Miss Sturgis event and a show-and-shine. My conclusion is Sturgis North did not work in 2011 in Salmon Arm and it did not work this year in Vernon. I would suggest a new name — perhaps Deer Rally or Bear Rally or Summer Rally (open it to the public for a name competition) — and bringing it to Kamloops next year. In South Africa, it is called the Buffalo Rally and thousands of people flock to every event. Such an event can be held in different towns to give various communities a financial boost.

Turn signals a novelty in Kamloops Editor: Invented in 1925 and used by all car manufacturers since 1939, the turn signal still doesn’t seem to have caught on yet in Kamloops. I would say that maybe one in five drivers even know what that switch is for. I don’t know if the driving test I took in Nova Scotia was different than those taken
in B.C., but that was one of the things, if not done, that would cause you to fail on the spot. Maybe the tests are too easy today in B.C. I know the boatlicence test I took last year and passed was much harder than the beginner’s driver’s test I took 39 years ago. It’s not younger drivers, either, contrary to belief.
I’m 54 and it seems to be drivers between 30 and 60 years of age who are having problems letting other drivers know they are turning before they jump on the brakes. I think maybe retesting every 20 years would be a good idea. If it saves one life, it is worth it. David Shaw Kamloops
Fireﬁghters are working with contract Editor: Re: (‘Battle over Kamloops firefighters’ contract heats up,’ July 18): Unless Kamloops firefighters are working for nothing, their current terms of salaries and benefits continue until new terms are agreed to. B.C. labour law stipulates that all
salaries and benefits continue. It is common practice by unions to use the ploy of working without a contract when, in fact, the opposite is true.

Water ﬁght continues in Robbins Range
YES 72% NO 28%
Editor: The diversion of Qahal Creek, to give more water to Larry Campbell, was the issue at a ministry meeting on June 18. Some time between 1991 and 1995, someone infilled about 100 feet of Qahal Creek to prevent it from flowing into Robbins Creek at Bogetti Meadow. So, the ministry apportioned $50,000 to divert Qahal Creek into an old channel about 1.25 miles upstream, instead of restoring the 100 feet that was filled in. There is so much water in Robbins Creek flowing past the Buse Creek diversion point that it floods Cowan Meadow all spring. In a statement to KTW regarding Buse Lake, Campbell said the lack of water has hurt wildlife in his area: “Without the water, a nearby lake is drying up,” he said. “There is no intention of hurting someone . . . We’re the ones that were hurt when this water was diverted and we just want to reconnect it and then we’re off and running.” It was surprising that no one from government — and there were at least six of them in the room at the June 18 meeting — corrected the claims. There is no water in Buse Creek because the diversion pipe (seet photo above) is not attached to Robbins Creek. And, 80 per cent of water that enters their diversion, when the pipe is attached, is lost in the porous ditch. Both the Ministry and the Buse Creek licensees knew these things long before. Why the deception? In the same KTW article, Campbell said the request isn’t malicious. But, it walks like a duck. Which person can tell the ministry to get Larry Campbell his water and the ministry bows in obedience? Michael Lindelauf Robbins Range

As a municipally employed jail guard, Tompkins is not an RCMP member. His lawyer quit the file as well, but Tompkins has since found new legal representation. The officers and Tompkins are due back in court on Aug. 23, at which time they are expected to report back about whether they have retained counsel. If they have, new dates might then be set for preliminary inquiry. If not, there will likely be another adjournment. The four had previously elected trial by a B.C. Supreme Court judge alone. A preliminary inquiry is a hearing at which a provincial court judge decides whether there is enough evidence for a particular case to proceed to trial. Four Kamloops Mounties and five City of Kamloops employees were initially implicated in the incident, but only four people were charged. The officers alleged to have been involved were each suspended from duty after the incident was reported. It is believed the four Mounties have all since been assigned to administrative duties. Brown, a 20-year RCMP veteran who was watch commander at the time of the incident, had been suspended with pay until recently. Tompkins’ employment status isn’t known. According to the Criminal Code of Canada, breach of trust by a public officer occurs when an official, “in connection with the duties of his office, commits fraud or a breach of trust.” It is punishable by a maximum of five years in jail.

From D-Day to 2012, battalion marches on By Frank Bucholtz SPECIAL TO KTW email@example.com
URVIVING members of Canada’s first parachute battalion that saw action at D-Day and in various parts of Europe during the Second World War, gathered to mark the 70th anniversary of its founding. The gathering took place on July 8 at Newlands Golf Club in Langley. The 11 members of the battalion who attended are Joe Pringle of Kamloops; Denis Labossiere of Vancouver; Monty Marsden of Mission; George Whatley of Abbotsford; Jim Kingsley of Parksville; Ray Ward of Mission; Darrel Harris of Delta; George Siggs of Vancouver; Knobby Clark of Mission; Peter Braidwood of Chilliwack and Herbie Harris of Comox. Retired Lieut.-Col. Wayne Dehnke of Chilliwack, the current president of the Canadian Airborne Forces Association, Branch 8 Bornewest of Chilliwack, said the 11 members who gathered are an amazing group, with a fascinating story of service. Bornewest has approximately 250 members within B.C., An association of retired military paratroopers, it meets regularly for social gatherings and commemorative military events.
Eight of the 11 original members of the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion gathered on July 8 to mark the 70th anniversary of the battalion’s founding. The battalion has an amazing Second World War record, including parachuting into Normandy on the first hour of D-Day. One battalion member received the Victoria Cross for his actions in treating a casualty in Germany in March, 1945. Miranda Gathercole photo
The 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion was created by an order of the Canadian War Cabinet on Canada Day (then known as Dominion Day) — July 1, 1942. In the first hour of D-Day, on June 6, 1944, the battalion parachuted into Normandy, France with the British 6th Airborne Division. Despite heavy casualties, the battalion survived its objectives and held off determined German attacks until the midAugust breakout from the area. The battalion advanced against German forces until it reached the Seine River. After returning to England in September to be reinforced, the battalion was ferried to Belgium on Christmas Day, 1944. There, it fought in the Ardennes Battle of the Bulge.
LAST MINUTE SPECIAL for Junior Golf Camps at The Dunes
By the end of January 1945, the battalion took over and held defensive positions along the Mass River in Holland until the end of February. On March 24, 1945, the battalion parachuted across the Rhine River near Wesel, Germany, in the largest concentrated airborne operation of the war. During that operation, battalion member Cpl. Frederick Topham tended to a wounded man in the field after two other orderlies were killed while tending to him. He later rescued three
occupants of a burning carrier. For this, he received the Victoria Cross. The battalion was then engaged in a six-week, 300-mile trek across Germany, and reached the town of Wismar on the Baltic Sea. As the division lead battalion, the Canadians entered Wismar on May 2, 1945, three hours ahead of the Russians. At the end of the war in Europe, the battalion returned to Canada in June and was disbanded on Sept. 30, 1945. It was the first
Canadian unit on the ground on D-Day; the only Canadian unit to fight in the Ardennes; the only Canadian unit to meet the Russian Army in Europe and the only unit in the British 6th Airborne Division to have a recipient of the Victoria Cross. The patron of the battalion association is retired Major-General Herb Pitts. “We had a very important celebration on the first of July when the regiment was born,” he said. “This was the first chance for this group on the West Coast to be able to come together and celebrate the 70th anniversary of military parachuting in Canada. “A long time ago, these fellows were the originals in the 1st Canadian Parachute Battalion. I’ve been honoured to have been their patron for about 30 years. “It’s too bad that age has caught up with most of their comrades, because
there’s not a lot of them left now.” The original members of the battalion who were present range in age from 88 to 94. “When they came back from the Second World War, in September, 1945, [the battalion] was disbanded. And, the disbandment was brought about because there was no clear role for it in the
peacetime setting,” Pitts said. “Three years after its disbandment, the army decided it did need parachute capability and the 1st Battalion of Princess Patricia’s infantry was the first major unit that was retrained to be a parachute unit. “That happened to be one of my regiments that I served in at that time.”

The Annual Mortgage Check-up For many Canadians, a mortgage is a once-every-ﬁve-year-chore. Fears about rates, costs and changes make this as enjoyable as paying taxes. However, a mortgage should be a tool to help you reach your goals, and that means planning. Life changes often dictate different mortgage strategies: are you starting or growing a family, starting a business, experiencing loss or interruption of income, planning home renovations, purchasing investment property or facing other major expenditures? A mortgage review can assess if your current mortgage’s interest rate, payments and options will help reach your goals. Low interest rates make it a good time for homeowners to give their mortgage a second look. Here are some common reasons to revisit your mortgage: •Paying down your mortgage faster: If you receive extra cash like an inheritance, tax refund or a work bonus, think about putting it toward your mortgage. For example, paying an extra $3,000 once every year toward the principal on a $250,000 mortgage can result in interest savings of $42,442 over the life of the mortgage, assuming a 25-year amortization and a ﬁxed rate of 4.19%. •Lowering monthly payments: Renegotiating for a lower interest rate or higher amortization can protect your ﬁnances from unforeseen expenses, reduced income, and allow you to save up a rainy day fund. •Debt consolidation: Boost your cash ﬂow or pay down your debt faster by taking high interest debt like a credit card balance and consolidating it into your mortgage. Your debt moves from multiple high payments, into one lower mortgage payment. Most lenders allow extra payments of 20% per year, so pay more when you have more! •Securing a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC): A HELOC can help you access lower-cost funds for investing, such as topping up your RRSP or TFSA contribution. It can also help you pay for home improvement projects or just be available for peace of mind. •Improving credit: A mortgage professional can discuss any credit concerns or issues and coach you on how to improve your credit score. Good credit advice can help you work toward cheaper future borrowing costs and better mortgage options. •Identifying concerns: Mortgages are supposed to work for you. If you are unsure about speciﬁc mortgage functions or beneﬁts, an annual check-up can be a great time to discuss concerns, learn how to set up extra payments, change your payment date and more. In the end, a yearly mortgage checkup could reveal that the best course of action is no change at all… there is satisfaction in knowing that as well! Whether you are a ﬁrst-time homebuyer, up for renewal or reﬁnancing, there are many unique and competitive products available on the market today. For more information about qualifying for a mortgage or if you have questions about your speciﬁc situation, please call 250 682 6077 or e-mail steve.bucher@ migroup.ca or check out my website at www.mortgagebuilder.ca
Acting Mayor Tina Lange was among those attending the official opening of the new Rotary Community Gardens on Tuesday, July 24, at the Wilson House on Tranquille Road. The City of Kamloops, in partnership with Interior Community Services, is undertaking an initiative to provide additional community gardens for Tournament Capital residents. With the completion of the Rotary Community Garden, their goal of reaching 268 community-garden plots by the year 2012 has been surpassed — a number now up to 327. Dave Eagles/KTW
New community garden described as ‘an oasis’

They come from Aberdeen, the South Shore and the North. They’re the gardeners in the city’s newest community garden — and they’re filling it up fast. Some use it for themselves, while others will donate their season’s produce to charities such as the Kamloops Food Bank. Tucked behind the Wilson Heritage House at 115 Tranquille Rd., the Rotary Community Garden officially opened on Tuesday, July 24. It’s the eighth such garden managed for the city by Interior
sun for everyone
Community Services (ICS). Karen Rosenke, ICS’s community development manager said its 28 plots are already three-quarters filled with gardeners, “And the gardens are growing immensely.” The Rotary garden brings the number of community plots in the city up to 327, and Rosenke said it’s not uncommon for more established sites to have waiting lists of hopeful gardeners. “It is just growing and growing,” she said. “And community gardens enable people to socialize. It’s healthy, active living, food security and just to enjoy the art of gardening.”
The new garden site was chosen partly because it’s convenient for gardeners coming from all parts of the city. “It’s easily accessible to people on the North Shore and the South Shore, it fits with the theme of the heritage house and it’s expanding a piece of land that is owned by the city to be useable for food security,” said Rosenke. “It’s like an oasis, hidden. It’s so cool.” Like the gardeners themselves, what’s grown on the site is diverse. XSee PLOTS A13

“There is a little bit of everything,” said Rosenke. “There’s squash, there’s cucumbers, there’s beets, there’s kohlrabi, there’s cabbage — the cabbages are beautiful.” To brighten up the space,
students from Brocklehurst Middle School pitched in to paint a mural, and Rosenke also credits the city, the Aurora and Kamloops Rotary Clubs and others businesses and service groups with helping get the project up and running. “It takes a whole community
to build a community garden,” she said. Securing a plot in one of the gardens costs $30 per year, along with a $30 deposit. Subsidies are also available for lower-income gardeners. To apply for a plot, call ICS at 250-554-3134.

A group of motorcyclists is set to arrive in Kamloops on Sunday, July 29, as part of the fourth annual Military Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride. The charity ride aims to raise money for children in need, with all funds going to support the Children’s Wish Foundation and the Military Police Fund for Blind Children. George Robinson, chairman of the B.C. portion of the ride, said about 30 motorcyclists are set to travel on the mainland stretch of the trip. He said motorcycle enthusiasts participate in the event because they want to enjoy the freedom of riding their motorcycles while supporting children who cannot enjoy this type of freedom because of their dependence on others. “So, if we can give to them to make a difference in their lives, that’s why we do this,” said Robinson.
The relay riders will travel to Kamloops from Vancouver and are set to arrive on Sunday at about 4 p.m. They will be spending the night at the Coast Kamloops Hotel on Rogers Way and be at the Kamloops Royal Canadian Legion on Lansdowne Street at about 5 p.m. for dinner and presentations. They depart for Jasper the next morning to meet up with riders from Alberta and the Northwest Territories. They will then head back to Victoria, travelling through Golden and Penticton on their way back. Robinson said he has 45 riders who will travel along the Vancouver Island stretch of the ride. Participants do not need to start and finish the race, he said, as people can choose to drive for even just one day. Those wishing to join the trek are welcome to meet up with his group. There is a $25 riding fee per rider or people can ride for free with a $100 pledge.
Robinson said every cent will be split between the two charities. Riders are responsible for paying their own fuel, food and hotel, but noted many of the meals have been covered by various donations. They also have discounted hotel rates with companies along their route. There are regional rides taking place across Canada for the Military Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride, said Robinson. The goal this year is to raise $100,000 nationally. It was started by members of the Military Police four years ago as a cross-Canada ride during the first two years —from Comox to St. John’s. While this year’s event has consisted of regional routes, Robinson said the 5th annual Military Police National Motorcycle Relay Ride in 2013 will be a coast-to-coast journey. More information regarding the ride can be found online at mpnmrr.ca.
From England comes a pair of osteotherapy practitioners Kamloops is welcoming two manual osteotherapy practitioners from England. Imogen Wood and Paul Roberts will join Sabino Medspa after completing their studies and practicing in Great Britain. Sabino Medspa, located in the Tudor Village Square on Summit Drive in Sahali, is an interdisciplinary healthcare clinic promoting health and wellness Manual osteopathy is fairly new to the
Canadian health-care system, although it is widely used in Europe in the prevention of joint and muscle soreness, cramps, tightness, and injury, and to assist in quick recovery of athletes suffering from any of those conditions. Prenatal treatment also helps to relieve back pain for an expectant mother resulting from the extra weight of carrying the unborn child. Treatment is an alternative for certain
painkillers that could be damaging to the fetus. Manual osteopathy
is primarily used for the treatment of neuro-musculo-skeletal disorders, such as
back and neck pain, sciatica, sporting injuries and postural strain.

Beware of scams The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is warning consumers about a loan scheme targeting residents across Canada through online classified ads promising personal and business loans up to $100,000. “In a market where credit is tightening, consumers will look to these unregistered loan companies who are only interested in collecting fees,” said Danielle Primrose, president and CEO of Better Business Bureau of Mainland British Columbia. “Offers that practically guarantee loan approval are usually too good to be true.” Global Financial Services purports to have an office at 600-666 Burrard St. in Vancouver, but there is no licensed or incorporated company at that address. Consumers who found the Global Financial Services ad on the online classified vancouver. backpages.com (and other Canadian city backpages.com sites) believed they found a local company offering loans. The company conducts most of its business through email, including sending its contract for an advance fee loan. A consumer reported paying an advance fee of $216 to “cover transfer, insurance and underwriter’s fee” to Global Financial Services. The company pro-
vided a loan agreement, which offered to lend $10,600 to the consumer. The consumer was instructed to send the fee through wire-transfer services. The wiretransfer record shows the money may have been transferred to a Montreal address. The consumer did not receive the loan. The Better Business Bureau offers the following points to consider before responding to ads promising guaranteed loans: • Stay away from advance-fee loan companies. It is illegal for a company to charge a fee in advance to obtain a loan, even if that fee is disguised as the first or last month’s payment, security or insurance. Victims of advancefee loan schemes who have sent money to process a loan have not received the loan as promised. Although legitimate lenders may charge a fee, the fee is deducted from the loan amount. You should never have to pay a fee in order to obtain or apply for financing. • Be cautious about online loan offers. Bogus loan brokers are out there posing as legitimate ones and using online classifieds because these scammers can post anonymously. Legitimate loan brokers would not guarantee any qualification for a loan before reviewing

LeafSource Stops Pain Within Days! “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had ﬁnally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the
numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone - as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.”
Why is it so eﬀective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inﬂammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70-80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems—often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through
the aging process. With joint inﬂammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inﬂammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive antiinﬂammatory drugs that cause many more problems than they solve. It is safe to take up to six per day with absolutely no side-effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inﬂammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction of inﬂammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. LeafSource is endorsed by
This product get results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. But it’s what LeafSource users are saying that truly demonstrates the products effectiveness: I have had cronic pain for over 15 years and have been going to a chiropractor monthly for pain therapy. I started using LeafSource two months ago and I am amazed at the results. I no longer have tendinitis, carple tunnel or irritable bowel. My arthritis is manageable, all my joints are limber and I’m able to exercise again. My energy levels are up, my nails and hair are stronger and my skin is softer. ~ Debbie

I am pretty stunned what this has done for me in 8 days of taking LeafSource. For 18 years I have tried many many products ...most of them expensive. And most did not work at all. I had been on a mission to find a product that is doing exactly what LeafSource is doing.So here I am on day 9 with 90% of my pain gone. ~ N. W. - Toronto

Anxiety disorders common in teenagers
N THE PAST while, we have had a number of questions, comments and interest in the issue of anxiety in teenagers. Some of the questions have come from teens and many from parents of teenagers. It is a serious topic and worthy of a longer explanation, but today all we can do is raise the issue, give some helpful hints and quick pointers and trust you to seek the right help. Everybody experiences anxiety from time to time and teens experience it often. Teensâ€™ lives are filled with stresses and pressures but, unlike adults, they lack the experience to keep these worries or stresses in perspective. Teens have yet to create strategies for more effective coping or they may not have had time to create a pool of resource people to count on in times of stress.
â€œBut, what about parents?â€? you ask, as if this is a good question when you already know the answer: Parents and families are one of the largest sources of anxiety in the first place, so do you honestly expect your teen to approach you and tell you? The sad truth is that many teens do tell their parents about their anxieties, stresses and worries, only to be told that they will grow out of it or their feelings are being exaggerated. Parents often react poorly to their teensâ€™ anxieties because they see the signs of anxiety as â€œteens are already over-emotionalâ€? or â€œthis is a phaseâ€? or â€œtheyâ€™re trying to play me.â€? Sadly, many parents believe anxiety is a serious mental illness and they do not
want to face that possibility for their child. Denial is easier and emotionally safer. In truth, anxiety can be a serious mental illness and anxiety is often the first symptom of more serious mental illnesses â€” and anxiety in teenagers can lead to issues such as overeating, smoking, depression and drug use. If tackled and handled at this early stage of mental distress, more serious mental illness can be prevented. The prejudice against the very idea that our child may have psychological distress is seemingly too much to bear for some parents. â€œ People will think Iâ€™m a bad mother!â€? â€œI wonâ€™t be able to face my friends!â€? â€œMy know-it-all
The Judges are Coming
sister will be saying, â€˜I told you so!â€™â€? All of these â€” and their cousin excuses â€” are the wrong reasons to ignore your teenâ€™s anxiety or depression issues. Actually, anxiety is very, very common in teens. Anxiety disorders â€” when anxiety is prolonged, does not have a specific source cause and is debilitating â€” is becoming more common all the time. Some school professionals are saying as many as 80 per cent of high school students have high anxiety and there is reason to believe there are a high number of
anxiety disorders in the mix. So, what are the signs of anxiety in teens? Look for anger, depression, fatigue, extreme mood swings, substance abuse, secretive behavior, changes in sleeping and eating habits, bad hygiene or meticulous attention to appearance and obsessive behaviour. Good luck with this, because these are also fairly common reactions in healthy teens. The difference is in how long these symptoms last and how debilitating they are. Most importantly, if your teen is telling
you they feel anxious or upset, the most important first step is simply to listen. Keep your parental mouth shut, as the tendency is to reassure them and, in the process, you are dismissing their concerns as unimportant, even if that is not your goal. Check back with them and see if things are the same, better or worse. This removes the need for your teen to summon the courage to approach you twice about their feelings. Ask them what they would like to do about their worries and help them do it. Offer to go with
them to a physician or counsellor. Above all else, treat their anxiety as seriously as you would a physical ailment that is not going away. Your teens deserve it and it is the right thing to do.

Country could go the way of Lebanon, Iraq X From A26
He still had the support of much of the population. The opposition was poorly armed and only loosely organized — and, as Napoleon also remarked, God is on the side with the best artillery. (If you want to be thought wise, contradict yourself frequently.) Perhaps “morale” is a better word than “moral”. The reason the regime seemed secure until last week was not its weapons, but the confidence of its supporters that their side was still able to win. That confidence has now been profoundly shaken. The fighting has reached the heart of the big cities and the rebels have struck even at the core of the regime, the national security building, to kill key members of Assad’s innermost circle. So, it is suddenly occurring to a lot of people who formerly saw the regime as the protector of their privileges that these guys could actually lose. If they are going to lose, you do not want to be in the last ditch with them. Maybe it’s time to change sides. About 10 minutes later, it will also occur to the same people that many others are undoubtedly having the same thoughts — and that means the collapse could
come quite quickly. This kind of thinking operates as a selffulfilling prophecy, so the regime’s final slide into defeat could be coming within days or weeks. That is by no means guaranteed, of course. In material terms, the regime is still vastly superior and morale is a volatile thing. If the uprisings in parts of Damascus and Aleppo are crushed quickly and decisively, the morale of the regime’s supporters could recover and the civil war might continue for months or years more. But, Syrians must now reckon with the possibility of an early collapse of the Baath Party’s 49-yearold monopoly of power. So the question is: What would happen then? The great fear is that it could go the same way as Iraq and Lebanon, two neighbouring countries that share about the same mix of ethnic and religious groups (in differing proportions) as Syria. Lebanon tore itself apart in a civil war among those groups between 1975 and 1990 and a quarter-million Lebanese died. Iraq tore itself apart between 2005 and 2009 and at least a half-million Iraqis died. Two-million people fled the country perma-
nently, including almost all of Iraq’s Christian minority, and the Sunni Muslims have almost all been driven out of mixed and Shia-majority areas. Any thinking Syrian, aware of these dreadful precedents, will be frightened by regime change no matter how much he or she loathes the existing regime. Indeed, the Assad regime’s principal means of garnering support has been to insist that only its tyrannical rule can “protect” the Shia, Druze, Alawite and Christian minorities from the 70 percent Sunni Muslim majority. It could easily go wrong. The original prodemocracy movement
was non-violent and emphatically non-sectarian. It was mostly Sunni Muslim, but it deliberately sought to attract the support of the various minorities as well. All the leaders understood that only a nonsectarian revolution could produce a democratic Syria. Unfortunately, the Assad regime drowned that non-violent movement in blood and, instead, Syria wound up with a violent revolt that has grown into a veritable civil war. What the rebels must do now is to end it without a massacre of the minorities. The price of failure is that the civil war won’t end at all. The most exposed
minority is the Alawites, because they have been the mainstay of the regime. The Assad family is Alawite, as are most senior figures in the military, intelligence and Baath Party elites. Their dominance has been based on close clan ties, not on their religion (they are a “heretical” Shia sect), and most Alawites have not benefited much from the regime, but they could

CruzelleMyram It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Bonnie Jean Cruzelle Myram on Saturday, July 21st. Bonnie is survived by her loving children, Jessie, Debbie (Craig), Cindy (Rodney), Jimmy (Tami) and Dean (Pam). In her heart forever are her grandchildren; Amber, Adrien, Darby, Jamie, Danielle, Sarah and great-grandchildren; Talisha and Phoenix. She is also survived by her sister Heather of Calgary. She is predeceased by her ﬁrst husband, Don Cruzelle, second husband, Jim Myram and parents, Hazel and Stan Mackenzie. Bonnie was born April 14, 1944 in Vancouver, BC where she met and married Don Cruzelle. The family then moved to Castlegar where she worked at the Hospital as a practical nurse. They then moved to Mclure BC. Don was killed in an industrial accident in 1974 and Bonnie started her career with the Barriere School District. Bonnie met Jim Myram in late 1975 and they started their new life together with lots of adventures along the way. Jim passed away in 2008 after a brave struggle with cancer. Bonnie’s accomplishments were many. She held several positions with the Barriere School District which she thoroughly enjoyed. After nearly 36 years she retired in June 2010 from her ﬁnal role as Library Assistant. She volunteered for various groups including; Yellowhead Children’s Society, various Elementary and High School groups, Clearwater Resource Center, Victim Services, North Thompson Hospice Society and the Thrift Store. Bonnie was a Justice of the Peace, Marriage Commissioner, Board member of the Yellowhead Pioneer Residence Society and the Barriere Cemetary Committee. She was in her third term with the TNRD as Director for the area. We will miss her unconditional love and support. Bonnie was deeply loved, respected and profoundly touched all who knew her and will be greatly missed by family and friends. While we have lost a very special person, we can take great comfort in the knowledge that the lessons that she taught us about how to lead a life full of laughter, love, adventure and family will live on within each of us. The family expresses a special thanks to the caregivers and staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home for their care and kindness. A memorial service will be held on Monday, July 30th at 1:00 p.m. at the Barriere Fall Fair Hall. Donations may be made in lieu of ﬂowers to North Thompson Valley Hospice House Society.

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
OT temperatures and clear skies are expected to return just in time for Wake2WakeFest, a pro-am wakeboarding tournament held at Riverside Park on Saturday, July 28, and Sunday, July 29. “We’ve ran this event for six years now and,
basically, it’s just a big fun shredfest for all of us,” said Chance Aldoff, who organizes the event with business partner Craig MacLeod. Riders in 13 divisions — from juniors to pros to a 40-andover veterans’ class — are set to embrace textbook wakeboarding conditions, sunny and 30 C both days, if Environment Canada is on the ball. “We try and run the
kids first to get them done,” Aldoff said. “That way, the parents, if they want to leave early Sunday, we can get them out of there for the drive back home.” Aldoff said elite riders usually take centrestage in the mid-afternoon and early evening both days. Riders from across the province have registered for the event, which will feature
plenty of activity away from the water. On the potential to-do list for those in attendance: Bouncy castles, a dunk tank, sandcastle contests, a bikini contest, live bands and DJs, raffle draws, tugof-war contests and a beer garden. There will also be a paddleboard race from Pioneer Park to Riverside Park. For a full schedule of events, log on to
wake2wake.net. Aldoff and MacLeod run Wake2Wake Surf/ Skate/Wake School. Lessons will be on offer this weekend for $20 per person. Registration for the tournament is still open. Register in person at Riverside on Saturday at 8:30 a.m. or Sunday at 9:30 a.m. “This is a family-fun event,” Aldoff said. “Everyone should come out.”
They weren’t drunk — they were just really, really into the game. That’s the word from Kamloops Mounties after a fight between players at a junior B lacrosse playoff game on Monday, July 23, erupted into a brawl between a handful of opposing fans in the stands at Memorial Arena. The Kamloops Venom were taking on the Vernon Tigers in Game 3 of their Thompson-Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League championship series. With less than three minutes left in the game, the host Venom sporting a commanding lead, things got physical on the floor. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said the Vernon goalie came out of his net to challenge a Kamloops player to a fight. “That started a fight on the playing surface, and that resulted in a scuffle between fans from Kamloops and fans from Vernon,” he said. An eyewitness said trouble was brewing before the fight started on the floor. He told KTW Vernon fans took issue with hecklers from Kamloops located behind the Tigers’ goal, who were said to be relentless in their verbal attacks on the netminder. Someone called police, but the fans had been separated by the time officers arrived. “Everyone was sober but, how do you say, deeply invested in the game,” Learned said. No arrests were made, but the bleacher brawlers — three or

four in total — were warned. The Venom earned a decisive 17-8 victory to take a 2-1 lead in the best-of-five series. Game 4 was played last night (July 25) in Vernon. Log on to kamloopsthisweek.com for the result. If Game 5 of the best-of-five series is necessary, it will be played at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, July 27, at Memorial. Tensions between the teams have been high all season. Kamloops was accused of forming a super-team this season when the Rattlers — the other junior B lacrosse squad in town — amalgamated with the Venom. “It was more a push from Vernon and Kelowna,” said Rob Smith, an assistant coach with the Venom. The B.C. Lacrosse Association cleared the Venom of wrongdoing in May, but the drama did not end there. “It’s been a lot of turmoil with all the politics behind the scenes and everybody’s comments about the super-team,” Smith said, noting games early in the season were cancelled in protest. “Kelowna won the league last year. They won the playoffs and they finished second in provincials, and yet no one said one iota about them winning. “We just wanted the same respect out of everybody and it went south in a hurry.”

ter and better year after year.” Award recipients are selected using a number of criteria, which extends beyond their playing ability. Such benchmarks include an applicant’s scholastic achievements, involvement in community activities, volunteer work, assisting with school projects and their contributions back to the game as coaches, game officials or helping with KYSA events and programs. “We feel we have acknowledged some pretty outstanding student soccer players once again this year,” Cope said. “The majority of our award recipients are heading to ThompsonRivers University, which bodes well for their soccer program. “But, there are also a number of other postsecondary institutes at which our 2012 award winners will be studying. They’ll be the benefactors of some great student athletes, too.”

But, generally, itâ€™s sad but true: Coaches are hired to be fired. Coaches are generally necessary, but unimportant components of successful teams. â€œI couldnâ€™t have done it without the playersâ€? is a familiar joke among coaches who know that good players tend to make ordinary coaches good and good coaches great. Undoubtedly, the sports coach with the highest profile in North America today is not in the NFL, NHL, NBA or Major League Baseball. The coach faced with the glare of the brightest spotlight in sports today is a Canadian who steers the swing of the worldâ€™s most famous golfer, Tiger Woods. His name is Sean Foley, a Torontonian who uses some unique golf ideas and some unusual philosophical approaches to steer his stable of golfers, which also includes Hunter Mahan and Justin
BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW Rose, both of whom are ranked among the worldâ€™s Top 15, as is Woods. Coaching Woods is not easy. Foley has gone from the equivalent of behind the scenes on golf ranges to Hollywood, where Tigerâ€™s every swing tweak is analyzed, dissected and discussed by the golf industry. If Tiger plays well, Foley is a genius. If things go bad in Tigerland, the tabloids may be calling for his head. Rose says Foley is â€œtechnical without being mechanical,â€? according to a story on golfworld.com. Oddly, Foley attended Tennessee State, a predominately black college, on a golf scholarship, but always felt more comfortable on the range, working on his game and othersâ€™, than on the course.
The golfworld. com story quoted his TSU roommate saying Foley kept a black garbage bag in his room filled with clippings of instruction articles. His instruction dream led to a job at Glen Abbey, near Toronto, and he started helping Canadian Stephen Ames on the range one day. â€œ . . . He changed what Iâ€™d been trying to change for years,â€? Ames told golfworld. com. Through Ames, Foley got to the inside of the PGA Tour and, while Woods was going through coaches Butch Harmon and Hank Haney, Foley was on his way to reaching the low point in his golf career. Now that Foley has helped Woods get back on his game, the Canadian is getting much of the credit for the resurgence. While Foley stands only 5-foot-7, he is becoming a big, big man in the world of golf.

Westsyde Youth gearing up for Haiti trip firstname.lastname@example.org
For Jordy Orsetti and his team of 17 — the Westsyde Youth — soccer is more than a game, it’s a chance to make a difference in peoples’ lives. On Aug. 3, Orsetti, three adult chaperones and 13 youth will fly to Haiti to hold a soccer camp for impoverished children. Orsetti, youth pastor at Westsyde Fellowship Church, has held High Power Soccer Camp in Westsyde for the past eight years. “For our group, we’re excited about Haiti, but I’m even more excited [for] when these kids get back home,” Orsetti said. The trip will likely foster a greater appreciation among the teens for what they have, Orsetti said, while highlighting the importance of helping others. For the Haitians, Orsetti said, the camp will offer a chance to experience something new. Missionaries Rob and Debbie Wray invited the group to come to Haiti. Originally from Kamloops, the Wrays have a Sunday school program in a poor area of Haiti called Renault. They feed and clothe impoverished children from the area.
“As these feeding programs continue, there’s always a tremendous amount of aid heading down to them, so it’s just more kids to get connected with them to have the opportunity to have more than what they already have,” Orsetti said. They will arrive at Port-Au-Prince for the 10-day trip and stay at the Wrays’ camp, which is near Renault. The group will help out at the Wrays’ Sunday school by distributing meals and clothing during the two Sundays they are in Haiti. Orsetti’s group will take between 80 and 100 children from Renault to the soccer camp each day. The Wrays will have translators to help deal with the language barrier. The soccer camp will run Monday to Thursday between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Basic skills in areas such as passing, shooting and trapping will open camp each day. The Westsyde Youth team will also put on plays, sing songs, teach from the Bible and break into small discussion groups, Orsetti said. Then they’ll scrimmage for the rest of the camp and have lunch before each day is done.

In the evenings, Orsetti’s group will meet and play games with youth volleyball, basketball and soccer teams, which are sponsored by the Wrays. On Friday and Saturday, the group will tour an aids orphanage, marketplaces and a prison. “I think we’re going to get the opportunity to see a different side of Haiti,” Orsetti said. “It’s a really impoverished and troubled nation and I think it would be neat for us to see a lot of that.” Through various fundraisers and donations, the group has raised more than $30,000 since October. The kids posted a $500 commitment fee before raising another $1,200 to send themselves to Haiti, said Orsetti, who thanked those in the community who gave to the cause. The group was given sporting equipment to bring to the Haitians. Westsyde secondary donated basketball, volleyball and soccer jerseys, along with shorts. Hansport provided 50 pairs of cleats and

COCKTAILS IN KAMLOOPS It was a tough job, but somebody had to compare the city’s most inventive inebriates Ever wondered what the Kamloops gold rush might taste like or what the city’s most eligible 19th-century bachelor might serve his favourite gal pals were he alive today? This summer, a group of Kamloops bartenders has the answers.
Tourism Kamloops’ annual cocktail competition is back, with nine bars and restaurants around the city competing for top prize. This year, however, organizers have thrown in a twist. Using a maximum of six ingredients, each drink must draw its inspiration from Kamloops’
200-year history. While all nine drinks will be served throughout the summer, one cocktail will be eliminated from competition each week through an online vote at tourismkamloops.com/cocktail. (At press time, three have been eliminated: Embers’ Go
Green Martini, Black Iron’s Johnny O’Brien Mojito and Brownstone’s Ginsinger Martini.) Votes can be cast daily from now until Monday, July 30. Once there are only five drinks standing, they will be judged by an expert panel to chose this year’s grand champion.

COCKTAILS IN KAMLOOPS Frick and Frack Tap House 577 Victoria St. For its Cool as a Cucumber cocktail, the mixologists at Frick and Frack took their inspiration from Kamloops gardeners, looking at vegetable and herb staples grown in the city. “Kamloops is very hot and summers are dry, so we wanted something refreshing with ingredients most people grow in their gardens,” explains Oliver Verenca. What’s in it: Cucumber shavings and fresh mint are shaken together with lime juice, soda and “the magic ingredient” — cucumber flavoured vodka. To mix things up further, the drink also has a basil variation. How it tastes: While the first sips are heavy on the cucumber, lime and mint take centre stage if you sip too quickly, which is all too easy to do here. For a full range of flavours, you’re better off pausing every few sips.
Hoodoos at Sun Rivers 1000 Clubhouse Dr. “I remember Kamloops as being full of orchards,” says Carrie Kashluba. “Out in Brock there were peach trees, cherry trees as far as you could see.” That childhood memory formed the basis for Settler’s Punch, which uses a variety of local fruits. What’s in it: Local gooseberries, mint, peach puree and lemonade pair with gin (a nod to the juniper berries which also grow in the area) and a quarter ounce of absinthe. How it tastes: We at KTW were a bit worried when we agreed to test this drink at 10 a.m., but its fruit-heavy profile makes it a good choice for a morning tipple. While gooseberries have a somewhat citrusy flavour on their own, here they combine for a tropical taste that’s closer to passionfruit or guava.

Terra Restaurant 326 Victoria St. Seat Z24 at the Sagebrush Theatre is the permanent home of an unusual theatre patron, to put it mildly: The ghost of Albert. The ghost is thought to be a Revelstokearea bartender named Albert Mallott, who was the first man ever hanged in Kamloops. Heâ€™s also the inspiration K for fo Terraâ€™s Spirit of the Black Sage, which pays tribute through a stagw gering number of ingredient-based ge puns â€” the most KTW counted in the pu entire competition. ent Whatâ€™s in it: Sage takes centre stage here, explains Katherine Whitehead, with exp blackberry liquor and fresh berries blac rounding out the flavours. As a nod to roun Albert, the restaurant chose Spirit Bear Albe vodka, distilled in Kelowna. vodka How it tastes: Ho First off, itâ€™s worth noting this cockFir only comes as a double. tail on â€œItâ€™s the only way to go,â€?

Crush Saute and Grill 650 Victoria St. â€œWe were just trying to pick fruit trees that have been in Kamloops as long as anyone could remember,â€? says Jason Fulton of the inspiration behind the Cherry Apricot Crush. To keep things local, both fruits are sourced from fruit trees on the Tkâ€™emlĂşps Reserve. Whatâ€™s in it: Homemade apricot jam and fresh cherries mix with 7Up and soda, in a drink that perhaps intentionally matches the barâ€™s own decor. How it tastes: This is a jam-loverâ€™s drink. The apricot dominates the drink, with small bits of cherry pulp popping up occasionally to add a bit of texture and tang. â€œItâ€™s a drink you could have four or five of,â€? Fulton suggests with a grin. â€œThatâ€™s what we were going for.â€?

Ramada’s Rooftop Lounge 555 Columbia St. West B.C.’s gold rush was a game-changer for the Kamloops area, luring miners and fortune seekers from the U.S. and China and sparking a demand for fresh meat and vegetables that led too further settlement of the city. While you won’t find any nuggets in the Ramada’s Heffley’s Gold cocktail, the drink handily mimics the colour of the precious metal. What’s in it: “It’s a twist on a classic whiskey soda,” explains Michael Lowes, layering Fireball whiskey and butter ripple schnapps into a glass rimmed in gold-coloured sugar. Once the gold colour is created, the drink is topped upp with club soda. How it tastes: Any drink with a Fireball base is going to be one for cinnamon lovers only, and this is no exception. Club soda keeps the drink balanced and not too sweet, though drinking off the rim (against Lowes’ advice, admittedly) is only advised if you enjoy mouthfuls of sugar.

A main project of the Kamloops Communities in Bloom Committee is to enhance the Red Bridge as it symbolizes the history being celebrated during this Bicentennial year, Two Peoples, Two Rivers, 200 Years. The Lorne Street entrance now has a xeriscape garden, and both a heritage recognition plaque provided by the City of Kamloops Heritage Commission and a bench donated by Kamloops KIA are installed. Improved signage and kiosks with the 125 year history of the ﬁrst Kamloops bridge are being prepared for the Lorne St. entrance and Pioneer Park. A ﬁnal goal is to illuminate the bridge at night with red solar powered LED lights enhancing the panoramic view of Kamloops from the ground and the air. The Committee is now seeking public donations to complete the Red Bridge Enhancement Project. The Heritage Legacy Fund of British Columbia provided a grant for panels on two kiosks describing the bridge’s history. Another grant from the Canada Heritage: Building Communities through Arts and Heritage will partially fund one kiosk but more funds are needed to build another kiosk and light the Red Bridge. The project is supported by City Council, Parks Department, Kamloops Museum and the Tk’emlúps te Secwepémc Band. Consultation with the Area Bridge Manager is ongoing as the bridge is owned and maintained by the Province. The Red Bridge is a vital part of Kamloops’ history. Before the ﬁrst Red Bridge was built in 1887, ranchers transported their cattle and grain on a dangerous raft pulled by a canoe. Why was it necessary to build a second bridge in 1912 and the third and current bridge in 1936? Why is it called the Red Bridge? Why was the bridge saved from demolition in 1968? These and other questions will be answered on the kiosks attracting both locals and tourists to the downtown area.
Everyone can help by becoming a Friend of the Red Bridge.

When Connie DeCaire first moved to the city, Kamloops was still home to a ginseng farm that was one of the world’s largest producers of the herbal remedy. Though the farm is now closed, its legacy provided the inspiration for the Ginsinger Martini. DeCaire said picking ginseng ffor her inspiration did make ccoming up with a well-balanced ddrink fairly challenging, thanks to its bitterness. But, she adds, “it’s great flavou vour. It’s very floral and unique to wo work with.” W What’s in it: G Ginseng and green tea is brewed with simple syrup, then mixed with strawberry puree and house-infused strawberry gin. How it tastes: One of the most complex drinks in the competition, the Ginsinger benefits from contemplative sipping. The taste isn’t easy to describe, but would be familiar to anyone who has sucked the nectar from a honeysuckle blossom, with a strawberry finish.

COCKTAILS IN KAMLOOPS
The Black Iron at Tobiano 38 Holloway Dr. To find inspiration for her cocktail, Janice Harrison hit the history books and stumbled across the story of Johhny O’Brien, Kamloops’ most popular bachelor circa 1886. As the proprietor of the Pioneer Salon, O’Brien was known for greeting ladies in the street with trays of beer, since laws at the time barred him from inviting them into his establishment. “I just love those day-to-day stories that you never hear now,” Harrison says. What’s in it: Green tea with lemon forms the basis of the Johnny O’Brien Mojito, which also includes gin, mint and lime juice. How it tastes: An iced tea with a kick. Mint and green tea are a great pairing, while the lemon and lime keep the drink refreshing and not too heavy.
Ora Restaurant Lounge 1250 Rogers Way “We wanted to do something different,” says Nicole St. Godard of ORA’s entry, The Double Century. After kicking around several options, the crew got to work on creating a birthday cake in a glass for the city, complete with a lit candle and a white frosting and sprinkle trim. What’s in it: In addition to the frosting, the drink brings the sweetness with vanilla and peach-infused vodka, creme de cacao, cream and a tower of vanilla- and tea-infused whipped cream. How it tastes: Despite the ingredient list, the drink isn’t overpoweringly sweet — though the chances of ending up with a whipped cream and sprinkle mustache are pretty high. Like its cakey inspiration, however, it’s definitely a dessert.

COCKTAILS IN KAMLOOPS
Keep voting online! All nine drinks will be served throughout the summer, with one cocktail eliminated from competition each week through an online vote at tourismkamloops.com/ cocktail. As of this publication, three cocktails have been eliminated via voting — Embers’ Go Green Martini, Black Iron’s Johnny O’Brien Mojito and Brownstone’s Ginsinger Martini. Which will be the next to flow down the throat of defeat? Which five will make it to the lips of the judges? Which drink will be crowned champion? Keep checking the website to see if your favourite concoction has the flavour of success.
Embers 540 Victoria St. “It’s not Kamloops history, but I feel like we’re making history,” says Stephanie Coder of the inspiration behind the Go Green Martini. Hotel 540, the bar’s home base, is one of only 53 hotels worldwide — and the only one in Kamloops — to hold the highest possible Green Key Eco Rating. The rating measures hotels’ efforts to become more sustainable and environmentally friendly. What’s in it: A medley of coconut rum, melon and banana liquor and lime and pineapple juices give this drink its electric green colour. How it tastes: Like its inspiration, the Go Green is thoroughly modern. Think a tart pina colada and you’ll have a pretty good sense of what you’re getting.
Liquid Gold: Sun Peaks salutes beer and whisky in inaugural festival Sun Peaks Resort will welcome two experts to share their knowledge and passion for whisky distilling and beer brewing this weekend at the first annual Liquid Gold: Beer and Whisky Festival this weekend (July 27 and July 28). Village restaurants will partner with the experts and with live music to create a new event. Jim Murray, an internationally recognized whisky commentator and creator of Jim Murray’s Whisky Bible, will hold a whisky seminar on Friday night (July 27). For the novice and the connoisseur alike, Murray will offer an interactive tasting experience. David Beardsell is owner and brwemaster of the popular Noble Pig in downtown Kamloops. He trained in Germany and England before returning to Kamloops to start Bear Brewing (now Kamloops Brewery). Beardsell then opened the Noble Pig, the first and only brewpub in the city. He will take centre stage at Sun Peaks during the Noble Pig Brewhouse Tasting Seminar on Saturday afternoon (July 28) and profile four different, classic beers by explaining the inimitable properties in each brew, as well as how each one is carefully and individually made.

Tripe, chicken necks and tea in the crypt Announcing the winner of our holiday-food story contest
DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT
AD IT BEEN A recipe contest, tripe might be a hard winner to swallow. But, when holidayfood stories began to come in for chance to win a copy of the Caribbean-set murder mystery, Island in the Clouds, I soon found myself with a literary feast that included, you guessed it, thymus gland. “ . . . my husband and I have fairly eclectic and adventurous palates,” wrote Alice Gro. “In fact, my husband has stated that the only food he will not try is tripe. “Some years ago, we were traveling by car through Germany to Provence, France. “Along the way, we were enjoying the local foods and wines of the regions we passed through. “With my Mennonite background, I found my German was good enough to make pretty good choices in the restaurants. “We entered France from Strasbourg and our first stop was the lovely city of Dijon. “It was mid-afternoon, so we decided to stop for a snack and our first French wine at a lovely sun-
dappled restaurant patio. “‘Leave it to me,’ I said when we were handed an all-French menu. After all, I had one year of college French. “With some confidence, I selected a couple of ‘small plates’ that I thought would go nicely with the red wine my husband ordered. “When the first dish arrived — you guessed it! — it was a plate of tripe, beautifully napped in a golden Dijon sauce. Oh my! “What a dilemma for the husband: Abandon this incredibly delicious-smelling tripe dish or abandon his aversion? “Well, we are foodies after all and, yes, we did hold our breaths and dip into this amazingly redolent dish. “And, yes, it was amazing! “We tucked right in and then cleaned up the sauce with our crusty bread so there was nary a smear left on the plate.” For its beautiful telling, and for convincing me to consider tripe if ever I’m in France, Alice has won the prize. There were, however, also some deliciously good stories that take the cake as runners-up. “We were sitting at a rustic picnic table enjoying first of the season radishes,” wrote Marion S. “I went to take a second bite of my radish and half (yes, half) a worm was wiggling back at me.” Marion, I wish I couldn’t relate.
Meanwhile, Alice recalled a second vacation story, “a month-long sail along the fragrant Windward Islands of the Caribbean [where we] found anchorage for the night in the stunning little harbour of Bequia. “I can recall the brightly painted cottages along the shore, the warm humid tropical air and steel drums easing the soft evening breezes. “As it turned out, our boat had some mechanical issues and we were obligated to spend several days at this anchorage. “Taking our little dinghy ashore . . . we all converged at the roti stand . . . [and] discovered three types of rotis: 1. Local (with bones — chicken
necks, backs and bits of dark meat). 2. Goat 3. Boneless (for the “softies,” i.e. tourists). Chicken necks? Yes, chicken necks. Tripe, however, still wins the prize, while honorary mention belongs to Kay Mori, who inspired this week’s recipe when she wrote: “Recently I was in London, where my granddaughter treated us to English Tea at St. Paul’s Cathedral. “It was a wonderful experience and I laughingly say that we had tea in the crypt because that is where the tearoom is.” From the crypt, Kay gathered secrets of an English Tea and now treats friends to “cucumber, salmon and egg-salad sand-
wiches (with the crusts removed), scones with strawberry jam and double Devon cream [available at Safeway] and meringues and cupcakes.” Thank you so much to everyone who entered!

Doucette’s got the blues Musician Sherman still hanging on for dear life By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
When Sherman Doucette was just a little boy, he’d climb up on his grandpa’s knee — “and hang on for dear life.” Grandpa was French and played harmonica so, when he’d start to blow on the harp, his knee would get moving and young Sherman loved it. Grandpa also played fiddle, dad played guitar and banjo, mom and his siblings all sang — so it’s not surprising Doucette grew up to be a musician, too. And, his music is the blues. Also a harmonica player, Doucette will be performing at Music in the Park on Monday, July 30. It’s his first time at the annual summer music event at Riverside Park and Doucette is hoping to see his audience up and moving. He’ll be bringing his band, the Tankful of Blues, which includes Cole Leaver on guitar, Grant Jones on bass and John Modder on drums. Although he has lived in Kelowna for many years now, the Saskatchewan-born musician hit the road
Down with Us Chardonnay: From the Vine to the Glass
By Lianne Milobar, Stag’s Head Liquor Store
Chardonnay is a white grape variety from the Burgundy and Champagne regions of France — thriving in chalky limestone soils — and grows in almost every country around the world. According to Jancis Robinson, OBE and Master of Wine, the Chardonnay name was at one time known only to grape growers, since French wineries label their bottles according to geographical regions. Once varietal labelling began, Chardonnay became like a brand.
Sherman Doucette brings his Tankful of Blues to Music in the Park on Monday, July 30.
for Vancouver when he was just 15. It was natural, Doucette said; he didn’t much like school and would rather be sitting at the teacher’s desk with an elastic and a ruler, a makeshift guitar imitation he held as he sang Beatles songs. “I was excited to get out into the world,” he said of leaving his North Battleford home and heading west, where he busked in Gastown. “The ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s were vibrant
in Vancouver and I worked every night for 30 years. “I started out in some of the small bars and worked my way up.” The move to Kelowna was a family decision. With his daughter about to enter kindergarten, Doucette wasn’t sure he wanted to raise her in Vancouver. On a trip to Rutland to visit his father, he
and his wife decided Kelowna was a better location for them. It worked out professionally, too, because “if I’ve got a gig in Calgary or Edmonton, I’m already halfway there.” As for his Kamloops show, Doucette said people can expect to want to move their feet and maybe get up and dance. The concert starts at 7 p.m.

In France, you wouldn’t ask for a Chardonnay at a restaurant — you would ask for a White Burgundy. In the U.S., when you ask for a white wine, you will most likely receive a Chardonnay. That’s how popular Chardonnay is in North America. The famous Paris Wine Tasting of 1976 changed how North American wines were viewed. A 1973 Chateau Montelena Chardonnay from California won the competition in a blind tasting against French wines. The tasters were stunned when the wines were revealed to them, and thus the gold rush on California wines began. After the 1990s, Chardonnay suffered from the Anything But Chardonnay — ABC — movement. It wasn’t because of the grape itself, but because of the big hit-youin-the-face with an oak baseball bat style of some Chardonnays. Many Californian and Australian Chardonnays are a very manipulated style with super fruitiness, high alcohol, over-the-top use of oak barrels and other techniques. American oak gives a stronger flavour to wine than European oak and is widely used by wineries in Australia, Spain, and North and South America. Oak imparts a vanilla flavour, and toasting the oak barrel imparts a coconut and butterscotch flavour. Chardonnay is an easily manipulated grape that allows the winemaker to imprint his or her own distinct style. Winemakers working with cool climate Chardonnays may add sugar
before fermentation in order to increase the potential alcohol level, while those working with warm climate Chardonnays may need to add acid to keep the wine from tasting flabby. The cool-climate vineyards, like those in Chablis or Champagne, produce medium- to high-acid Chardonnays with medium body and alcohol — refreshingly crisp, full of minerality and with subtle flavours of apple and pear. Warm-climate Chardonnays are voluptuous in your mouth with low to medium acidity and medium to high alcohol — boasting apricot, melon and tropical fruit flavours like mango or pineapple. Oak-barrel fermented Chardonnays are a rich, full bodied style smelling of butterscotch, honey, nuts, smoke, toast, and vanilla, while giving flavours of baked apple pie, butterscotch, coconut, oak, pineapple, smoke, and vanilla. Try this style of wine with chicken, duck, lobster, corn chowder, creamsauced pastas, pork and seafood. Unoaked Chardonnays will give notes of apples, citrus, hazelnuts, papaya, melon, minerals, nectarines, and tropical fruits on both the nose and palate. Try these wines with chicken, eggs, fish, guacamole-based Mexican food, pork, macaroni and cheese, shellfish, pesto pasta and turkey. Wines that have undergone malolactic fermentation to soften Chardonnay’s acidity will have buttery aromas, while wines made sur lie — a process where the fermented juice maintains contact with the yeast after fermentation — impart a yeasty aroma. Serve Chardonnay chilled at about 10 to 13 degrees celcius for the most enjoyable results. Easy to grow, make and drink, Chardonnay is capable of producing some of the finest wines in the world. Many barrel-oaked Chardonnays are capable of long-term cellaring for up to a decade, but most unoaked Chardonnays are best enjoyed while young. These are suggestions of what flavors you may find, and some foods to try with Chardonnay. Hopefully this will enhance your wine enjoyment. Cheers!

INDIAâ€™S MOGHUL MAGNIFICENCE By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com
India and the Taj Mahal are synonymous in the minds of most visitors to the sub-continent. But, there is a group of lesser known, but no less dramatic Moghul monuments that lie a mere 35 miles from Agra, (the site of the Taj) in the little village of Fatehpur Sikri. The story goes that in the mid-1600s, the Moghul Emperor Akbar the Great, desperate for a son and heir, sought an audience with the reclusive Muslim saint Salim Chisti. The saint blessed the Emperor and, the following year, the birth of Akbarâ€™s firstborn son occasioned tumultuous rejoicing throughout the land. Akbar decided that, as a mark of honour to Salim Chisti, he would move his capital from Agra to Fatehpur Sikri, and he proceeded to build a wondrous city with buildings of glowing red sandstone, splendid courtyards and airy pavilions. Along with a couple of friends, Iâ€™m in a rather ramshackle, (read cheap), public bus rattling through one of the huge entrance archways to the walled city. We dismount, only to be assailed by a small army of wannabe guides. Eventually, we succumb to the most Velcrolike of the lot â€” a young man with an engaging grin. His name is Mahmood. Despite his fractured English, Mahmood turns out to be a good investment. He also has a flair for
the dramatic. â€œPrisoners killed here on courtyardâ€? he says, throwing himself on the grass beside the stoneflagged entrance pathway. I am a little dubious about this: Akbar, by all accounts, was a humane Emperor and it seems unlikely he would be capable of such savagery. The large rust-red palace buildings flank an open courtyard. â€œThis is Parcheesi board,â€? says Mahmood, pointing to an inlaid chequer-like design in one area of the courtyard. â€œEmperor sit here,â€? pointing to one side, â€œand opponent, he sit there. Pieces are all beautiful slave girls or sometimes bad traitors. If traitors killed in game â€”then killed afterwards, too. But, slave girls not killed â€” they only given to winner for enjoy.â€? We nod, bemused. The extraordinary Diwan-I-Khas has four sandstone balconies situated high above our heads, representing the Moslem, Christian, Hindu and Buddhist faiths â€” and they are all linked by bridges to a central column, symbolic of spiritual unity. The Emperor sat on a throne above this central column and held debating sessions with philosophers and intellectuals. Akbar tried to establish a universal religion incorporating the truths common to all faiths, which he labelled â€œDin Iâ€™lahiâ€?. But, after his death, this idealistic notion faded into obscurity. The Ankh Micholi palace has colonades around which, Mahmood
says, the Emperor â€œdid peek-a- booâ€? with the beauties in his harem. It is also easy to imagine the Emperor and his court sitting on the terrace of the Panch Mahal (five-tiered palace) listening to Urdu poetry or the plaintive notes of a sitar. Or perhaps looking on appreciatively as nautch girls thrummed their anklets to the beat of tablas, their silhouettes dipping and whirling against a flaming sunset sky. A little later, we stand before the main entrance, subdued by the sheer bulk of a 54-metre high archway called the Buland Darwaza. And then, Fatehpur Sikri lays its final treasure before us: The exquisite shrine of Salim Chishti. Fashioned out of white marble, sunlight filters through its intricately carved marble latticework screen. The tomb
itself lies under a canopy inlaid with shimmering mother of pearl. Yet all this splendour was short-lived. The furnace of summer and years of drought reduced the city to a wasteland. The court reluctantly moved to Delhi. And, Fatehpur Sikri lay empty and deserted through the succeeding centuries. Today the village of Fatehpur Sikri is a huddle of poor hutments below the Buland Darwaza and visitors now flock
through the once grand entrance archway not to find an audience at the court of Akbar, but to marvel instead at his legacy of palaces and pavilions that have endured through time. The shrine of Salim Chisti continues to draw devotees: childless women of all faiths still come in pilgrimage, seeking the same blessing that a mighty Emperor craved more than four hundred years ago: the gift of a son.
