City sees nothing wrong with size of staff By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

An internal audit of the organizational practices that found Kamloops has more managers and staff than other B.C. communities of its size hasn’t led to a reduction in city workers. According to an in-house update released under the Freedom of Information Act last month, the city chose not to make “significant changes” to its organizational structure following the report by Born Consulting, a local-government management firm — an audit originally conducted in 2008.

But, city parks, recreation and culture director Byron McCorkell said, that’s because the larger number of staff identified didn’t represent that many positions. The original report showed the city has just under nine per cent more staff than other communities of a similar size — 659 employees, compared to an average of 607. It also has three per cent more people in management roles. “We’re talking about two positions,” said McCorkell. “So, really, you have to look at what services we’re providing in comparison with the other communities . . . and, overall, we feel our management group is in line.

“That’s what that number is saying to us. Statistically, we may have a couple more bodies, but overall we’re in pretty good shape.” McCorkell said it’s also worth noting the original report showed the city’s operating costs were seven per cent lower than average. “The bottom line in any conversation is how cost-effective are you? And, we feel we’re quite good in that regard. “So, we’re going to continue doing what we do.” According to the original report, the city is delivering “quality services to its residents on a similar cost basis as other similar-sized communities.”

CHEESEBURGER

However, it cautions the city against expanding much more than it has, calling any further staffing increases “not possible to justify.” McCorkell said that’s generally a recommendation the city has taken to heart. “We’re not going to go into a big hiring mode,” he said. “We’re going to continue to do what we do and fill vacancies. But, we’re not going to be expanding greatly.” According to an update looking at how the city has implemented the report during the last several years, all requests for new staff must now undergo a business-case analysis before they’re considered at budget time.

Boy inspired to keep helping By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Christian Beatty, 9, shows off some of the donations from his two-day food drive, which netted 1,127 pounds of food and $1,100 cash for the Kamloops Food Bank. Beatty said he’d like the food drive to become an annual event. Andrea Klassen/KTW

As the final donations from his weekend food drive were weighed and added up, Christian Beatty was beaming. Over two days, the nine-year-old Juniper Ridge resident collected 1,127 pounds of food, plus another $1,100 in cash. His reaction? “Ho-lee crap.” After hearing about a fire at the Kamloops Food Bank last week that destroyed most of the organization’s food supplies, Beatty initially set out to collect enough food to fill his parents’ truck at least once. His first day of colBASS A8 lection at the Juniper Market netted nearly 500 pounds of non-perishable goods. The rest came during a second collection day on Monday, Aug. 6, at the Real Canadian Superstore. “Lots and lots of people came,” said Christian, who said his final tally is well beyond what he had hoped. “I felt like people actually meant what they did. Like, they did it not just because [the food bank] burned down, but because they wanted to.” Bernadette Siracky, food bank executive director, praised the outpouring of community support that has followed the fire. “This is amazing,” she said. “We actually have food to put in hampers . . . this community supports us, always.” Beatty wasn’t the only person with a big donation to bring in Tuesday morning. Kevin Rains, branch manager at the Sahali Scotiabank also stopped by as the food was being weighed to drop off a cheque from all three local branches for $5,000. Rains said he and his co-workers heard about Beatty’s project on the news and wanted to pitch in. “I think this young man is pretty inspirational,” he said. Though he had never organized a food drive before this past weekend, Beatty said he’s now planning an event for next August and hopes to run one every year.

Charges possible after tubers-boater incident as being in their 40s and 50s. Ward said two of the women are from Kamloops, while one was visiting from Calgary. Mounties are continuing their investigation. Ward said tubes are not considered water craft and tubers are afforded the same right-ofway as swimmers — meaning a boat operator would always be at fault in any collision. “We’re going to investigate it,” he said. “If there’s charges that can be laid, we’ll be laying charges.”

powered boat had come too close or hit them.” The boater helped the women to shore, gave them his name and left the scene. He returned later and spoke with police. “The three females were taken to RIH and checked over,” Ward said. “They had some injuries, none serious in nature.” Ward said the boater is a 40-year-old Kamloops man who had not been drinking prior to the incident.

Beaten man put into induced coma By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Calgary man is clinging to life in a Kamloops hospital bed after a violent altercation on the North Shore over the long weekend. The age of the victim has not yet been made public, but police said they were called to Royal Inland Hospital early on Sunday, Aug. 5, after a man suffering serious head injuries was dropped off by friends at the emergency room. Doctors quickly placed the victim in a medically induced coma, so investigators have yet to speak with him. The man’s friends, however, told police they were walking down Wood Street in the area of Cherry Avenue apartment buildings at about 4 a.m. when they engaged in a back-and-forth conversation with a group of men on an apartment balcony. Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said the group from the balcony then left the building and made

Potential for collapse slows fire investigation By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

An investigation into an industrial fire at Kemp Concrete on the Tk’emlups reserve is on hold due to fears the damaged building could collapse. “It’s too dangerous to go in,” said Kamloops Fire Rescue investigator Dan Funk. Investigators are waiting for a structural-engineer’s report on the burned mechanical shop and, Funk said, it’s possible the structure will have to be propped up to make it safe to go back in. The fire started at about 8 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 5, at the Chief Louis Way site. At the time of the blaze, firefighters and Kamloops RCMP said the fire could have triggered an explosion, because it was in an area where flammable and compressed chemicals were stored.

Funk said that’s no longer a concern for the investigative team. “There were chemicals in there at the time and there was a lot of gasses too, compressed gasses that were a concern,” he said. “But, now that it’s cool, it should be better to go in, providing we can get the structural integrity.”

Man sought in food-bank fire Kamloops RCMP are still on the hunt for a man who may have been involved in the Aug. 2 fire at the Kamloops Food Bank. Const. Bernie Ward said investigators are making progress in their attempt to track down a man who was seen hanging around the agency for several hours before the fire broke out. “They’re definitely going after this with zeal,” said Ward. “There is a description in this par-

ticular instance which in the past we’ve lacked, so this is good.” The man was described by neighbours as non-white, with long hair and carrying a red backpack or sleeping bag. He was also riding a bicycle. “It’s a good description. And the other thing about it is the nature of this thing,” Ward said. “People call in more when you’re hitting the homeless and needy. “Harm the food bank or steal the Girl Guide money and stuff, and look out.” According to Kamloops Fire Rescue, the fire started in a lean-to shed next to the food bank’s storage area. Fire captain Kevin Hall said it’s not clear what started the fire, as there were no obvious accelerants found at the scene. While the blaze was contained to the storage space, it destroyed more than a month’s supply of food destined for food bank hampers.

Lindsay assault trial starts next week By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

An Edmonton murder suspect accused of stabbing an undercover Mountie in Barriere last fall before allegedly twice stabbing his cellmate at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre during a game of Scrabble is slated to stand trial next week. Mark Lindsay, who is being held in custody in Alberta on a seconddegree murder charge, is expected to appear in person at the Kamloops Law Courts on Monday, Aug. 13, to stand trial on two counts of aggravated assault. The son of a former Edmonton police chief, the 25-year-old is alleged to have stabbed his cellmate twice in the same eye — once with a pen and once with a pencil — last October. The cellmate, a 21-year-old Kelowna man, was left blinded in one eye. That incident took place about a month after Lindsay entered KRCC following his arrest north of Kamloops. He was apparently the subject of an RCMP Mr. Big undercover operation, in which officers pose as gangsters in an attempt to convince a suspect to confess to a crime.

MARK LINDSAY: Murder suspect charged after stabbing at KRCC.

On Sept. 21 in Barriere, Lindsay is alleged to have stabbed an undercover Mountie he’d been travelling with from Edmonton to Kamloops. In a series of exclusive jailhouse interviews last year, Lindsay told KTW he and the officer were hauling what he believed to be quads in

a trailer being pulled by a pickup truck. Lindsay is alleged to have stolen the truck following the altercation. He was arrested by Kamloops Mounties near McLure a short time later. Speaking with KTW, Lindsay said he had no idea the man he was with was an undercover police officer. It’s believed the Mr. Big investigation was launched after Lindsay’s ex-girlfriend, 31-yearold Dana Turner, went missing in Edmonton. Turner vanished in August 2011, days after Lindsay was released from an Alberta jail after serving 50 days for stabbing her in the head last June. The mother of two’s

body was found in a farmer’s field in central Alberta last October. In March, RCMP in Edmonton announced they’d charged Lindsay with second-degree murder in relation to Turner’s death. Lindsay was originally slated to stand trial in June on the KRCC stabbing charge, but the two trials were rolled into one. He had also initially requested trial by judge and jury on both charges, but later changed his election to B.C. Supreme Court judge alone. His preliminary inquiry on the Alberta murder charge is expected to begin next year. Lindsay is the son of former Edmonton

MORTGAGE MATTERS Renters!! Are you ready to buy? People rent for very good reasons, and you may have many of them...but have you ever wondered if you are ready to buy? Here are a few considerations to review when deciding if you are ready to buy. 1) The Rental Market – What are the rents projected to be in the near future, how much

are you paying compared to similar rental units, what could your rental dollar do if it was put toward a mortgage payment? 2) Employment – How safe is your employment, are you committed to the work force or considering school, is your income showing signs of stability/ increase/ or decrease, are you happy with your job? 3) Happiness – Is your current home meeting all your needs today, will your needs change in the near future, can your home suit your future needs? 4) Rate Trends – Low interest rates can mean your payment dollar can go further. Taking advantage of periods with low interest rates can put you in a higher value home for the same monthly payment as a less expensive house with a higher interest rate. What are the interest rates expected to do? 5) Inventory – Perhaps most importantly...what is available for sale in your price range, in the neighbourhood you prefer and in the style of home that you desire? A premature step into something that is only second best for you and your family begs a “for sale sign” in your future. Get it right the first time. Shop the market and be prepared to take a break if what you see doesn’t make you happy. 6) Down Payment – Down payment is not always an obstacle if you are ready to buy. Some lenders will provide the downpayment as well as the money for the house. However, in most cases, lenders like to see a 5% downpayment and 1.5% closing costs. This can come from a gift from family, savings, RRSP withdrawal etc. 7) Nobody Moves Nobody Gets Hurt – Staying exactly where you are involves the least amount of work, least amount of change and least amount of money out of your pocket...in the short term. Preparing yourself for home ownership is something that can start today and gets you set up for the long term. A trip to your mortgage broker is part of that plan.

One person’s act reveals again heart of the community

I

F KAMLOOPS IS EVER LOOKING TO FILL THE POSITION OF OFFICIAL CITY CHEERLEADER, LOOK NO FARTHER THAN BERNADETTE SIRACKY. You can’t have a conversation with her right now without hearing how absolutely wonderful the city is, in her view. And she’s had a pretty good opportunity to make that assessment in the past week since getting a phone call while on vacation in the U.S. that the food bank she oversees was on fire. I can just imagine how she felt because when I returned to the hotel in Lethbridge, where I was staying, and saw an email about the fire, I went into some sort of “oh-dear-what-canwe-do-what’s-happening-oh-dear!” mode. In fact, I didn’t even read my text to Bernadette that night, which led to a weird spell-check moment that left her wondering who was texting her and why were they asking about “his woman.” I thought I had typed “Heck, woman.” She is still making fun of it when we talk. The fact she can joke at a time like this speaks volumes about resilience. Within hours, it seems, Kamloops had started to rally as it learned an apparent arsonist had managed to burn the one area of the main Wilson Street building where food that was destined for hampers for the next two months was being stored. Volunteers were out every day emptying donation bins at local grocery stores, something that just

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL doesn’t happen. Volunteers, staff and a couple of board members were at the site on Monday — a statutory holiday when they could have been vegging out at a lake or hanging with friends at a cabin — to make sure hampers were ready to be given out this week. In fact, Bernadette said, there were more volunteers there this week than ever before. People were stopping to hand over donations, be they food or cash, on a regular basis. It continued through this week. That fact means that this list won’t be complete because, even as I sit here writing this column, there are people dropping off food or cash or cheques to help the food bank. There was the couple from Phase One Heating who brough more than 200 pounds of food they had bought. Their children have never known a day when there wasn’t enough food on the table, the wife said, so they wanted to help those who live with that reality. Some folks from Scotia Bank brought $5,000. Denis Peterson of Coopers Foods

called and offered his company to do whatever it needed to do to help. Christian Beatty, a nine-year-old who has his own personal link with the food bank, collected hundreds of pounds of food and plenty of cash in a drive he decided on as soon as he heard about the fire. National Rent-A-Car called offering to help, as did Valley First Credit Union. An employee at the Delta Sun Peaks who had a load of scrap metal he was taking in brought the cash he received from it to add to the collection. Rotary Daybreak came to help, as did Graycon Computers. who look after equipment at the building. BDO Dunwoody called to help. Project X gave theatre-goers for its production of Romeo and Juliet a discount if they brought food. Folks at food banks in Vancouver, Surrey and Merritt called offering whatever they could send that would help. Some folks have wondered aloud why the food collection is happening, since the agency has insurance that will cover the losses. Anyone who has ever dealt with an insurance claim knows the answer to that question. Yes, the food will eventually be replaced by insurance — but people continue to need help feeding themselves and their families now. And — no surprise to Bernadette and her staff — Kamloops is making sure that happens. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It seems a shame that, with such a wealth of possibilities, the best Conservative leader John Cummins could do with a damning audit of legislature finances was to take a shot at Bill Barisoff. It’s clear from Auditor General John Doyle’s report some major reform is needed when it comes to finances at B.C.’s Legislature. And, in response to the report, which concluded financial practices at the Legislature were little short of a train wreck, there appears to be some needed change on the way. It’s a sad truth politicians and bureaucracies of every stripe play fast and loose with the public purse at times. In this case, it is dramatic how far out of whack things have gotten — Doyle’s report concluded a $1.3-billion adjustment is needed. Without a doubt, Doyle’s report is going to play against the Liberals with an election less than a year away. Surely Cummins could have found a better political target than Barisoff, questioning his conduct while calling for his resignation. True, as Speaker Barisoff holds overall responsibility for the finances, but there are factors that need to be considered. First, Barisoff does not stand alone. As Speaker, he is also chair of the nonpartisan legislative assembly management committee, where the true responsibility lies. Then too, the books didn’t get out of whack based on either a single man or even a single administration’s doing. It is against the system that allowed this mismanagement to go on for so long that Cummins should be directing his ire, not against a man or even a party. The province doesn’t need rhetoric. It needs real change, — Penticton Western News

Re: A TALE OF TWO TOURS

Radiation and a side of vaccine Editor: Forty years ago, I had a malignant cancer which had spread to my muscles and lymph nodes. A radical mastectomy ensued and was followed by 18 radiation treatments. What could I do to survive? I convinced myself that if I received the smallpox vaccination and all other

inoculations I could get, they would fight the cancer. So, I asked for them and got them. It might be why I am still alive. Not long ago, I read that a vaccine related to the smallpox vaccine helped rid a rat of brain cancer. There have been studies regarding the effects of this vaccine and it appears they

are favourable. This confirms my belief it may extend a cancer-patient’s survival by many years or perhaps even prevent cancer. Should it not follow that more research money be directed toward this incredible vaccine? Marcelle Leibel Kamloops

I would like to be able to add to this in a small way dealing with the articles regarding the mentioning of the five road bridges that remain today after the demolition of the Black Bridge back in 1972. I was born in Kamloops in 1938

and do remember crossing this bridge many times with my Grandfather on his way the the Kamloops Golf course. People think the Red Bridge is narrow but they would change their minds if they had to cross the old Black Bridge, at least it sure seemed awful narrow to me in the early 1950s. Sonny Zart Kamloops

Editor: The senior RCMP membersw leave much to be desired. For example, a dog died as a result of a cruel beating and the owner will be sentenced to the full extent of the law. We have discredited female police members who suffer from harassment by male members. Now, we have Monte Robinson, who killed a Polish immigrant and a cyclist and he walks with just a 12-month conditional sentence. To defend himself, he lawyered-up and lied. This low-life is an insult to our legal system and a disgrace to the RCMP and to his heritage. Senior RCMP members continue to sweep the wrongdoings of other members under the rug. Is this justice?

Prime Minister Stephen Harper has rejected suggestions his government is considering pushing through the proposed Northern Gateway oil pipeline across northern B.C. Harper was asked about Enbridge Inc.’s pipeline project at a stop in Vancouver on Tuesday, Aug. 7, and the frequent accusation he has already decided it is in the national interest for it to proceed. “I’ve been very clear that decisions on these kinds of projects are made through an independent evaluation conducted by scientists into the economic costs and risks that are associated with the project,” Harper said. “I think that’s the only way governments can handle controversial projects of this manner, to ensure that things are evaluated on an independent basis, scientifically, and not simply on political criteria.” Harper told reporters he has spoken with B.C. Premier Christy Clark and other premiers about pipelines,

but those conversations are private. It’s his first public comment since a dispute erupted between Clark and Alberta Premier Alison Redford in July over Clark’s demand for more revenues. “I’m not going to get into an argument or discussion about how we divide hypothetical revenues,” Harper said. He did emphasize that, in general, it is important for Canada to diversify its trade and open up new markets in Asia. The federal gov-

ernment is planning “huge investments” to improve environmental protection for shipping resource material, but it won’t favour any individual project, he said. Kinder Morgan hopes to twin its existing oil pipeline from Alberta to port and refinery facilities in Burnaby, to transport more heavy oil from the Athabasca oil sands. But, the company has not yet formally applied for federal environment assessment. Clark initially said her government would wait until the federal

assessment of Enbridge is concluded in 2013 before deciding whether to support it. Then, in late July, the B.C. government presented a list of five preconditions, including a positive recommendation from the federal review. The others are “world-leading” oilspill prevention and response capability on land and at sea, meeting legal requirements to consult and accommodate aboriginal groups along pipeline routes, and a “fair share” of oil revenues for B.C.

Toy drive underway for displaced kids By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s something altruistic Kamloops residents usually only think about in the weeks leading up to Christmas — donating toys to kids in need. But, a local women’s shelter is hoping to capitalize on some summer generosity with a toy drive aimed at helping displaced youth celebrate special occasions — and just be kids — yearround. Throughout August, the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter is running a program called The Empty Toy Box Project. “Basically, the idea is that every time a child comes to the

house [shelter] we try to put together something special for them,� said Jes Stanko, familysupport worker at the shelter. “We try to make it special for the kids because often they’re leaving situations that are out of their control, and they have to leave their toys behind. “We usually rely a lot on Christmas donations — but, what we get at Christmas goes out at Christmas.� Enter The Empty Toy Box Project. “We thought it would be a good idea to be able to provide that for the rest of the year,� Stanko said, noting many wouldbe donators are stretched thin in the winter months.

Celebrate with queen for a day By Michael Potestio STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tea will be served on Saturday, Aug. 11, to honour Queen Elizabeth’s 60th year on the throne. The Kamloops Multicultural Society and the Kamloops Heritage Railway have gotten together to celebrate the event with a royal tea party at the railway plaza starting at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Aug. 11. Kamloops Multicultural Society president Del Turner said it is an event aimed at seniors. “It’s mostly, when you think of it, it’s the seniors that are interested in the history of the monarchy

and so forth, so we tried to aim things at the seniors more than anybody else,” said Turner. English tea and biscuits will be served by seniors from the CSI Seniors Centre and a woman will dress up and act like the queen, said Turner. Tea-party guests will also be entertained by various performers, including dancers from the Kamloops JapaneseCanadian Cultural Centre. The “queen” will also board the heritage steam train for a trip up the North Thompson and eturn for tea with the guests in royal walkabout

Got Food? Petland does...

style — which will involve the queen greeting people and shaking hands. Guests are encouraged to dress up in 1952 attire or even 1852-era costumes, share memories of royal experiences and show others any royal mementos they have. People are invited to join the queen on the train ride if they want.

There will also be a trivia contest for guests and colouring for children, said Turner. He said they’re supplying the tea and biscuits and will be asking for donations. Turner said they haven’t decided agency that will benefit from the donation money. For more information on the event,

The power of mockery

H

OW MUCH DO TYRANTS FEAR MOCKERY? Consider the case of Belarus, often called “the last dictatorship in the heart of Europe,” where President Alexander Lukashenko has just fired his airforce and border-security chiefs because they did not stop a Swedish light plane from dropping teddy bears into the country. The plane, chartered by a Swedish publicrelations firm called Studio Total, crossed into Belarusian air space from Lithuania on July 4 and dropped hundreds of teddy bears on little parachutes on the outskirts of the capital of Minsk. The teddies bore labels calling for freedom of speech and respect for human rights, which is only

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH what Lukashenko’s opponents within the country demand — before they are carted off to jail. Lukashenko, who has won every “election” in Belarus since 1994, was furious. “Why didn’t the commanders intercept that flight?” he raged last week. “Who did they sympathize with?” In reality, his commanders weren’t paying much attention to air defences because nobody is going to bomb Belarus, but he

couldn’t accept that explanation. His power rests on people believing he is too strong to resist and the teddy bears said the opposite, very loudly. Meanwhile, some hundreds of kilometres to the east, a trial opened last week in Moscow. Three young women, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich – Masha, Nadia and Katya to their friends – face a charge of hooliganism that could send them to jail for seven years for singing a song in church. Their real offence is that it was an antiVladimir Putin song. Masha, Nadia and Katya belong to a punk rock band called Pussy Riot. It’s a loose collective of about 10 young Moscow women, femi-

nists in a very macho country who dress in brightly coloured clothes and balaclavas and use music and performance art to criticize the repression and conformity they see around them. They are funny, brave and sometimes offensive. They are not criminals. In an action one band member later called an “ethical mistake,” five of them entered the Cathedral of Christ the Redeemer in Moscow last March, stepped onto the altar and delivered a cheeky, shrieky song begging the Virgin Mary to free Russia from Putin. A companion videotaped them and the performance lasted exactly 51 seconds before security guards intervened and the police were called. The cops came and took down three of the band members’s names (the other two escaped), but made no arrests, did not confiscate the videotape and did not open a case against anybody. Only nine people had seen the performance and most of them were guards. It just wasn’t worth pursuing — until the video appeared on YouTube two weeks later and went viral. This all happened during the election campaign that saw Putin return as Russia’s president after eight previous years in that job and four more as prime

minister (to get around the constitutional limit of two terms as president). XSee CHURCH A20

GLOBAL VIEWS

Church head claims song an eternal sin XFrom A19

Pussy Riot chose to make its protest in Moscow’s cathedral in response to its patriarch’s public statements it was “unChristian” to demonstrate and the Putin era is “a miracle of God.” It is alleged the patriarch called Putin demanding legal action against the blasphemers. He was certainly cross — his spokesman, Vsevolod Chaplin, declared that “God condemns what [Pussy Riot] have done. I’m convinced that this sin will be punished in this life and the next. God revealed this to me like he revealed the gospels to the Church.” But, the decision to make a horrible example of the young women was Putin’s, not the patriarch’s. People accused of non-violent crimes are hardly ever held in custody in Russia before their trials, but Masha, Nadia and Katya were refused bail and have already been in prison for five

months. Nobody has been allowed to visit them, though two of the three have small children. The state-controlled TV channels (that is, almost all of them) have waged an endless propaganda war against them, portraying them as foreign agents. The trial verges on the ridiculous. On Aug. 2, a lawyer for one of the cathedral guards (who has “suffered deeply” and lost sleep over the incident), described the punk band as “the tip of an iceberg of extremists, trying to break down the thousand-year edifice of the Russian Orthodox Church by . . . guiding the flock through trickery and cunning not to God, but to Satan.” And behind it all, of course, was the “world government” — the Satanic West. The girls of Pussy Riot — they deliberately call themselves girls (“devushki” in Russian) to emphasise their innocence and

powerlessness — have done more by mockery to unmask the authoritarian nature of the Putin regime than all their more earnest colleagues together. At a greater personal cost than they ever imagined, they have raised political consciousness in Russia and made the regime look both cruel and foolish. Putin is no fool. He realizes things have gone too far and, on a visit to London last week, he tried to throw the machine into reverse. “There is nothing good in what [Pussy Riot] did,” he told reporters, but “I don’t think they should be judged too severely.” The court, no doubt, will take this an order. But, the damage to the Putin regime is already done.

BRUMBAUGH (RITCHEY)

It is with deep sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Dell Brumbaugh on August 2, 2012 at the age of 69. Dell was predeceased by her husband Buzz in 1993. She will be lovingly remembered by her children Dean (Patty), Shelley, Lori, and Scott (Jen). Also left to cherish her memory are her grandchildren Brett, Tyson, Logan, Kelsey and Erin and her brother Don (Irene) Ritchey of Terrace. For Mom, summer was her time to shine. She spent many hours lovingly tending her beautiful flower garden which brought her great joy. Christmas won’t be the same without her homemade molasses bread and grape jelly. A special thank you to all the friends, family and neighbours who so thoughtfully cared for mom during her illness. A private service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Her Journey’s Just Begun

Born and raised in Northern Minnesota and spent many years in Canada. He lived his lifetime being all the things he loved: hunter, outfi tter, cowboy, woodsman, father, craftsman, explorer, philosopher, athlete & artist. He loved his family, and lived everyday to the fullest. His favourite place to be was hunting on horseback in the mountains. Remembered as an enigma of days gone by.

Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much. E. Brenneman

Pendrel set to take on the world By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Party late or get up early. Those are two ways to watch Catharine Pendrel — Kamloops’ last medal hope — go for gold on Saturday, Aug. 11, at the Olympic Summer Games. The women’s crosscountry mountain biking event gets underway at 4:30 a.m., B.C. time. It will be held on 550-acre Hadleigh Farm, a hilly outdoor course in the Essex countryside, about 60 kilometres outside London. Pendrel, ranked No. 1 in the world heading into the Games, is familiar with the course — she won the Olympic test event held at Hadleigh last July. “Racing and being successful on that course

tells me that I can be successful on that course again,” Pendrel told KTW. “I’ve shown myself to be top three in the world the last couple years. That definitely is my goal going in there.” The 32-year-old Harvey, N.B., product moved to Kamloops — world-renowned for its mountain-biking terrain — in 2006. Among her favourite places to ride are

Dufferin, on Schubert Drive and along the North Thompson River toward McLure. Pendrel won the world championship in 2011 and the International Cycling Union (ICU) Mountain Bike World Cup earlier this year. She placed fourth at the Games in Beijing four years ago, missing the podium by nine seconds. The course at

Hadleigh, which will take about an hour and a half to complete (setting your alarm for 5:30 a.m. might work . . .), has been altered since Pendrel won the test event in 2011. Organizers widened the usually narrow track to encourage more passing, according to cbc.ca. Hadleigh is also said to be TV-friendly, due to its lack of trees and open countryside. The five top-ranked female ICU crosscountry mountain bikers are, in order, Pendrel, Gunn-Rita Dahle Flesjaa of Norway, Julie Bresset of France, Maja Wloszczowska of Poland and Annie Last of Great Britain. “I know there are a lot of women with the same goal and a lot of women that can be top three on any given day,”

Frizell left wondering after measuring-system flaw By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Sultana Frizell was feeling hard done by after the women’s hammer-throw qualification round at the Olympic Summer Games in London on Wednesday, Aug. 8. The Kamloops-based Canadian athlete will not compete in the final, but she might have if there was not a problem

with the event’s computerized measuring system, which misfired on Frizell’s first effort — her best of the day. The distance of the throw was not recorded. Frizell was allowed a re-throw, but none of her official tosses matched the discounted heave. Her best recorded throw of 67.45 metres was well short of the qualifying mark.

“Unfortunately you’d like to double-check your [stuff] before you go ahead with an actual competition, so that was not within my expectations to have the measuring system not work,” Frizell told Brian McNair of Metroland Media Group. “It’s unfortunate and I did have three more throws, but I wasn’t able to execute on the three throws like my

It won’t be of the same ilk as an Andy Murray-Roger Federer final, but tennis action across Kamloops will be hot this weekend when the Sunshine Open returns. “It’s amazing how many out-of-town people are coming and I’ve been turning people away because it’s full,” tournament director Al

Lincoln said. “People love coming to it and it’s called the Sunshine Open for a reason.” The tournament will be played at Kamloops Tennis Centre (KTC) and Riverside and Charles Anderson parks in hot temperatures under sunny skies, if Environment Canada’s predictions come to fruition.

HEY COME BOUNCING OUT OF THE LETHBRIDGE LODGE HOTEL, LOOKING LIKE ANY GROUP OF YOUNG ADULTS. Backpacks slung over shoulders, earbuds firmly in place, many carrying Kindles or paperback books. They board the large bus waiting at the back of the hotel for them and look like any group heading out for a day at the beach or doing some touring. Not this group, though. They’re Cirque du Soleil performers headed to the city’s Enmax Centre for hours of training before the evening show. And, it’s while they work backstage that these young men and women, some of them still in their late teens, transform. Even without the makeup, the wigs and the colourful costumes, wearing just warm-up and exercise clothes, they become something else as they run through their parts of Quidam, the next Cirque show headed to Kamloops. Their bodies move in ways most of us would never attempt. They think nothing of soaring dozens of feet above the concrete floor of the facility, trusting their co-performers to catch them after they spiral and somersault and flip. Fifteen semi-trailers rolled into Lethbridge for the seven shows, accompanied by 52 performers representing 23 countries, 22 full-time technicians and the other specialists who ensure the two-hour show being taken through Western Canada goes

off nightly without a hitch. The cast gets Mondays and Tuesdays off, then starts in with traiing on Wednesdays, opening days in each location the troupe is visiting. They’ll go through their segments, do some exercising, stretching, head for the massage therapist, maybe take in a mixed-martial arts class Canadian performer JP Viens leads once a week. Later in the afternoon, before dinner and the 6 p.m. pre-show cast meeting, they’ll start to put on their makeup, get their costumes ready and relax before the 7:30 p.m. curtain. Quidam — the name comes from the Latin and means someone — draws its imspiration from “New York on a rainy day,” said public-relations spokesperson Jessica leboeuf. Franco Dragone, the man behind the 16-year-old show, wanted to take a look at connections and disconnections, at how people can seem busy but are really only thinking about themselves and about strangers in a crowd who, if you asked, would have a story to tell. The plot in essence revolves around Zoe (Alessandra Gonzalez, who is also one of the main singers). Her parents neglect her, lost in their own worlds — and she creates her own world of Quidam, where she meets unique characters. Quidam is considered “one of the classic shows that represents what has made the company famous,” leboeuf said. It’s headed to Kamloops next week, opening on Wednesday, Aug. 15 and continuing with shows through to Sunday, Aug. 19. While in Lethbridge, KTW spent a day with the cast and crew. Inside are stories on some of the people behind the magic of Quidam.

Thousands of details create Cirque shows the big-top feel; for Quidam, lights were strung from the centre of the ceiling down to mimic the folds of a tent. Abel’s excited to be bringing Quidam to his home province — and, in particular, to Kamloops, where he has family and friends. It’s a sentiment he’s found he shares with many Cirque performers who have been to the Tournament Capital. “People here don’t always like small,” he said, “but they really like Kamloops.”

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Like most young Canadian boys, Sheldon Abel played hockey. But, while the young Revelstoke native played left wing for teams in Vancouver, others in his extended family got involved in the film industry in the area. That might be one of the main reasons why Abel was determined to give up the ice rink — except when at those ice-rink venues that host Cirque du Soleil. He was so determined, he said, that, when he missed a job fair for the company in Vancouver, he bought a plane ticket for Toronto and flew there to apply for a job. His first show was Alegria, where he worked his way through props technician and carpentry. Eventually, his skills — and a marketing cirtificate from BCIT — led him to be the go-to guy for all the details that keep Quidam, his current show, organized. In essence, if it has to be moved, loaded, unloaded, stored or used, Abel has to make sure it happens and know where every piece carried in the 15 semi-trailers is at every venue the troupe performs in during the current tour. He’s handled logistics for both arena and bigtop shows and prefers the arena, simply because loading and unloading

Sheldon Abel missed the job fair when Cirque du Soleil was in his hometown of Vancouver several years ago — so he hopped a plane for Toronto to apply for a job. That was in 2008 and, since then, he’s worked his way up to be the production stage manager for Quidam. Lorne Kemmet photo

shows that happen under a tent “can take three days to load out.” With arenas, it’s a matter of hours to get everything out of the trucks and, at the end of the run, back into them again. Wherever they go, Abel hires up to 100 people to help with the loading and unloading and then keeps a tight rein because “it’s a nighmare if you don’t keep it organized.”

Even then, problems can arise. Abel recalls a show he worked in Korea in the winter, when eightfoot-long steel stakes snapped as they were being pulled out of the ground. A sand storm in Dubai hit one of the tent shows and, months later “we opened a socket set and there was still sand in it.”

Abel’s a cheerleader for Cirque the company, praising it for the work it did to ensure it didn’t have to lay off employees as the economy slowed in recent years. That’s one of the reasons it started doing the arena shows, he said, as is the reality Cirque can take its performers to smaller communities. They still try to keep

Gymnast knows when to clown around By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When he started in acrobatics at age 8, Andrii Lytvak had no idea he’d end up a clown. In fact, as his sports career continued and the Ukrainian athlete started winning championships, he had no thoughts of anything else, he said. And then, Cirque du Soleil came calling. “They always looking for people,” Lytvak said. “Every serious competition, there’s always some guy from Cirque who comes.” In 2009, that travelling guy asked Lytvakm Andrii Bilozor and Roman Urazbakiyev if they’d like to join Quidam — and take on the final act of the show, the Banquine. Banquine, which was created in the Middle Ages in Italy, involves 15 artists performing a continuous series of acrobatics, human pyramids and synchronized movements. In fact, of all the acts in Quidam, the Banquine is the one when general stage manager Gabriel Dube-Dupuis often finds himself holding his breath, even though he has seen it

Montrealer learned to work the Cyr Wheel from the master By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

To watch Eric Saintonge manipulate his Cyr wheel, you’d wonder how he manages to do it. He must be using every single muscle in his body to spin and twirl the hoop during his act, the opening acrobatic scene, in Quidam. Not so, says the veteran Montreal athlete. “This, this is like a vacation,” he said of the work he does with the wheel. “In gymnastics, you have to do all the apparatus,” Saintonge said. “In the circus, you do what you like to do.” The 37-year-old has only been with the show for three weeks, filling in for the usual opening German wheel act, whose athlete is taking a break for a bit. The German wheel involves two hoops joined by joined together at various spots around the circles. The Cyr wheel, created by Quebecer Daniel Cyr — who taught Saintonge the discipline — is a single hoop, which

makes its movements more fluid. “I was the third or fourth person Daniel Cyr taught so I’ve been taught by the master,” he said. Saintonge has been performing with the Cyr for eight years as a freelance artist. This isn’t Saintonge’s first Cirque show, however. He started with it in 1996 as a consultant, trying out new apparatus. Eventually, Saintonge decided he also wanted to be on its stage and was one of the athletes to perform on the power track in Alegria, its own unique display of physicality and strength. His opening is one of 10 athletic acts in the two-hour show. Others include Chinese yo-yos — but not like the ones you remember from childhood — aerial contortion in silk, skipping ropes — see above re: your childhood memories — aerial hoops, hand balancing, Spanish webs, statue — you have to see it to believe it — duplex trapeze and the Banquine. Quidam is at Interior Savings Centre, 300 Lorne St., from Aug. 15 to Aug. 19. There are several shows and a variety of ticket prices. Tickets are at ticketmaster.ca.

More news about mental-health

T

HE ONLY WAY YOU CAN HEAR ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH NEWS FASTER THAN IN KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK IS IF YOU ARE A DOCTOR — AND MANY WILL BE HEARING THIS NEWS FOR THE FIRST TIME, RIGHT ALONG WITH YOU. Exciting news has been reported in the fight against cognitive loss and conditions like Alzheimer’s disease. Although the study is too small to make wild conclusions (only 156 people were tested), the University of Washington in Seattle reported daily hormone shots dramatically improved cognitive functioning of all but one test subject. A mini-chain reaction of hormone releases causes the body to produce more insulin and other hormones that decrease with age. Although not a cure for conditions like Alzheimer’s, this could bring us closer to developing treatments to prevent or delay onset of them. Another study from the busy Seattle university reported findings for a study every parent already knows: If kids watch violent media, their sleep will be disturbed. Before you say, “Duh!” just yet, of course everybody “knows” this, but it has not been scientifically studied until now. Violent media includes graphic video games, television and movies; sleep disturbance can be anything from nightmares to restless sleep. All people — and children, in particular — need adequate amounts of sleep to develop and to remain healthy, both physically and mentally. If you are an employer, help your bottom line by making your workplace mentally healthy. According to research from Stanford, depression is the single biggest reason for sick days taken from work. And, in a ground-breaking study out of Norway that followed more than 13,000 participants for six years, anxiety is a much more important risk factor for prolonged and frequent sick leave than previously thought. In fact, anxiety caused more prolonged loss of work time than did depression.

Naturally, people suffering with both conditions had the highest risk of absenteeism. Depression alone costs the American workplace $44 billion a year in sick days. According to the British Medical Journal, even mild psychological stress increases the death rate in otherwise-healthy people. The higher the psychological distress, the higher the death rates. Researchers reported stress often leads to hormone dysfunction; this can create some dramatic health declines. To the British researchers involved, this hormonal link between stress and health is what causes otherwise healthy people to die prematurely. Interestingly enough, the World Health Organization reported families with a lower income had an earlier onset of mental disorders. Looking at almost 40,000 people from 22 countries, a study from the University of Tokyo also found links between mental illness and earlier death. More news about football brain, a phrase coined by the media to describe the brain damage caused by repeated blows to the head when playing sports. Former Atlanta Falcon star Ray Easterling only played NFL football for eight years, but had significant signs of chronic traumatic encephalopathy — brain and neurological damage — as the result of his football injuries and head traumas. Our knowledge about this poorly understood area of brain health has exploded in the last few years and we are now beginning to see the effects of very small blows, repeated over time in sports, add up to major brain and mentalhealth impairment. If your child or youth plays soccer, be concerned about heading the soccer ball. It is almost unconscionable a sport that promotes use of the head to drive a ball travelling at high speeds does not promote use of helmets. Professional sports leagues are starting to take these research reports seriously — and so should athletes and parents of athletes. If you have a comment or question for us, write to us at Kamloops@cmha.bc.ca because we love to hear from you.

The truth can be told, I’m a knife nerd

T

HE PHONE RINGS ON A THURSDAY AFTERNOON, RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE OF A THOUGHT. Pop goes that thought, never to be had again. But, it’s Chefhusband and, while I am known for ignoring calls at all times of the day and night, for muttering hexes on Alexander Graham Bell and his dratted contraption, I am always glad to hear from Chefhusband, who works long hours. Right away, I can tell he’s been bit by a bug of news. In the ambient noise behind his voice, I can hear his entire kitchen staff has been infected, too. “Guess what’s come to Kelowna?” he says, pausing to give me time. (Tick tock. Tick tock.) Now, while he’s wait-

DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT ing for me to guess, let me take you back to October of 2010. It’s a beautiful autumn afternoon in Calgary and I’m with a friend, browsing the shops and food boutiques in the newly trendy area of Inglewood. Back when I lived in Calgary, Inglewood was a shambletown, an area of the city known for drugs and, well, drugs. Now, the smirch has been all but washed away and, in its place is a chocolate shop that

imports its own cocoa beans. There’s a thrummingly busy deli the size of a warehouse. A bakery wafting the scent of sourdough at nose level. And there’s Knifewear, a Japanese knife shop, from which I emerge with a new chef’s knife, a ceramic steel and a t-shirt that illustrates various cuts of horse. (We are not horse eaters, but any anatomist will tell you we, and all animals, are made of roughly the same cuts. The grim irony made me snicker.) The knife, made in Japan and bearing the river patterns of its forging, was for Chefhusband. Since giving it, I’ve not seen it more than twice. Very little, it seems, is worthy of its edge and, since I am not Samurai

(AKA a certified chef), I am not permitted to use it. Now, back to last Thursday, where we’ll skip straight to the answer. “Knifewear opened a shop on Pandosy!” exclaims Chefhusband. We are there before the weekend ends. At first, I pop into a shop next door to see about a chair for the desk I use when hiding upstairs from the phone. With one in mind, I then wander two doors down and find just about every chef in the valley getting teary at what they behold. Every chef, including mine. Up and down the display cases, they pick up blades with the sort of reverence not seen since Indiana Jones lifted the Holy Grail. They are philatelists at a stamp convention. Lepidopterists in a

butterfly museum. Nerds in a comic book store. “Knife nerds,” I say to myself, smiling at their goofy expressions. On a butcher block in the centre of the display cases is a potato and a soft tomato and, when no one else is busy, I’m given a knife (girly, but fierce) to try. It is a thing of glory. “Knives should be sexy,” I’m told as I grasp the handle, which settles into my hand with perfect balance and slices through the tomato with the force of nothing but its own weight. I lift the knife and look into its surface — and then I see it. Through the smear of tomato juice, through the flowers embossed in the steel I see a goofy grin. I see the same look as on the faces of the chefs around me. I see a knife nerd. And she is me.

TRAVEL

Bamfield — on the edge By Cherie Thiessen SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

T

HE FRANCES BARKLEY NUDGES THE PIER ON BAMFIELD’S WEST SIDE, IN CLOSE PROXIMITY TO THE GLEAMING RED AND WHITE BUILDINGS OF THE PROVINCE’S OLDEST COAST GUARD STATION. A boardwalk twists along the inlet with cottages sprouting docks perching alongside. The proprietor of the tiny general store is hanging out a sign: “Closed for Freight Receiving.” Our binoculars have never been far from our eyes during this threehour voyage down wilderness-fringed Alberni Inlet from Port Alberni to Barkley Sound. We’ve spotted eagles, inched by rainbows and chugged in and out of rainstorms and occasional splatters of sun. The passenger freighter’s crew of five is casual and friendly and the captain, John Adams, has pointed out interesting spots along

the way. Kildonan, for example, was a thriving cannery village of 500 in 1914, but now is home to only a few summer cottagers and fewer still full-timers. In summer, the Frances Barkley also stops at the old Sechart whaling station, now a lodge catering to kayakers. This Norwegianbuilt ship, which can carry 200 passengers and 100 tons of cargo, docks wherever it’s needed — at fish farms, small settlements like Kildonan, and even float homes. Don Kapalka from the Imperial Eagle Lodge meets us in his cherry red ATV and we jolt along the steep and rocky track. The Kapalkas bought the property in October 2010, adding kitchenettes to their five cottages, improving their one-acre garden and enlarging the dock to accommodate guests arriving by boat. This is starting to remind me of the Long Beach I used to know 35 years ago, with its rough dirt road snaking from Port Alberni through to the Pacific

What is W C Critical Illness Insurance? ce? e?

Simply put, it is insurance that pays out a lump sum, tax-free payment if you are diagnosed with a Critical Illness.There is more than 25 critical illness covered (cancer, heart attack, stroke, etc.) The statistics reveal the fact that more and more Canadians, at even younger ages, will be confronted by a critical illness in their lifetime. Fortunately, statistics also show that progress in medical science and improvements in our lifestyle have helped people to survive these illnesses, and to live longer.

Rim and that feeling of being at the very edge of the world, before the area got tamed. Bamfield, after all, is close to Long Beach’s southern extremity at Ucluelet, as crows fly and boats bounce. It’s also the northern terminus of the West

Coast Trail. We arrive at the lodge and — eager to explore — stow our luggage in our immaculate accommodation, soon slogging along the rocky track in search of Brady’s Beach, a scenic and popular public beach and cove. XSee LIFE B11

Wine

Down with Us Free Our Grapes By Jake Ootes, Celista Estate Winery

Cheers are emanating from the House of Commons in Ottawa over the passage of the bill that amends the Importation of Intoxicating Liquor Act. Ottawa now says it is no longer a criminal offence to ship or receive wine from another provincial jurisdiction. The amendment now allows the importation of wine from one province into another “by an individual for his/her personal consumption.” Ottawa has downloaded the issue to the provinces. While the federal restriction has been removed, the amendment to the Act provides authority to the provinces to set limits on personal importations of wine as well as limits to direct consumer sales by internet and telephone, etc. But the amendment to the Act did not address the issue “for resale or other commercial use.” As an example what this law has done is change a rule which allows Joe and Jane Public to take wine across the provincial border from British Columbia to Alberta (which we all know has been happening anyway) and that it is no longer a criminal offence. This action removes one barrier, but for B.C.’s small wineries there are additional issues. The wineries are still held hostage to provincial policy makers and their liquor control boards. Perhaps even more so now! The federal amendment is only one of many barriers facing small winery businesses in British Columbia. Comments by Miles Prodan, Executive Director of the B.C. Wine Institute, are published in an article by Gordon Hamilton in the Vancouver Sun. Prodan says he believes the liquor boards are going to drag their feet on meaningful change because to them it is the start of an erosion of their control. In other words the liquor board may see a vintner ship a bottle to an individual today, tomorrow it sees a case of wine shipped to a restaurant, or a bar -- hence an erosion of their monopoly and their income. That would hurt the liquor board revenues, which by the way in B.C. reached the following astronomical figures as published in the Financial Post publication Canada’s

500 Largest Corporations. British Columbia Liquor Distribution Branch ranked 140th with revenue of over $2.6 billion and profit of $890 million, representing a return on their asset value of 528.9 per cent., the biggest return of any of Canada’s largest Merchandisers. Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission, owned the Government of Alberta, by comparison, had revenues of over $4 billion and profit of over $2 billion. You can bet the Alberta government does not want an erosion of their profiteering enterprise. However for the good of free enterprise, wineries should be allowed to ship wine across provincial borders without restriction and without financial penalties to commercial outlets. Wineries will add value to the local and provincial economies of British Columbia and create jobs for B.C. residents. It seems perverse that the large wineries of France, Italy, Germany, the U.S., etc. dominate our wine markets. They have the resources of large scale enterprises, their own supportive governments to challenge and brake down our trade barriers, and huge production volumes around the world. I do know, and understand, B.C. is committed to free trade. Within hours of the “Free my Grapes” bill being passed by the federal government the B.C. minister responsible, Rich Coleman, whose department is responsible for the liquor file, had his agency issue a press release stating B.C. has adopted new regulations on inter-provincial trade and that it is ok for an individual to take wine across the provincial border. The big issue is to allow the direct shipment of wine into the commercial sector of another province. Provinces such as Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, who have no winery industries, will no doubt restrict BC wineries the ability to sell direct to a wine merchant, bars and restaurants in their jurisdictions. This is where Rich Coleman can, and should, play a pro-active role – arrange a sit-down with his provincial counterparts with the message “drop the barrier.” Coleman needs to make this legal. The issue should not be left to the small wineries of British Columbia to take the initiative.

TRAVEL

Life on the Coast its own experience XFrom B10

Twenty minutes later, we emerge onto an expansive beach, with tidal pools to explore and huge stacks to clamber on, while monster rollers toss up spray and mallards play hide and seek. We wander until weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beachcombed out and ready to explore Bamfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more-developed side. East and West Bamfield are split by the inlet, connected only by boat. With twice the population and most of the amenities, East Bamfield is home to the well-known Bamfield Marine Sciences Centre, dedicated to education and research. Here is also where the pub hangs out, along with a motel, restaurant, marine shop and much of the population of 250. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not always easy to find a skipper to ferry you across the inlet but, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re at the Imperial Eagle, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in luck. Don operates several boats and water taxi operator is one of the many hats he wears, along with fishing guide and proprietor. We wind up the day with a provisioning trip to the tiny general store and head home to cook dinner in our snug cottage. The next day, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

meeting Sheryl and John Mass, operators of Broken Islands Adventure Tours. The day dawns brightly and we head into Barkley Sound aboard their 27-foot vessel to explore the Broken Islands and to look for bears, whales and sea lions. Our three-hour tour stretches into four as we linger to watch two humpback whales feeding, snap photos of sea lions and study two beachcombing black bears.

FAITH

An Olympic-size egalitarian step

I

T’S BEEN HEARTENING TO SEE two Saudi Arabian women participating in the Summer Olympic Games, a first for women from the conservative kingdom. Olympic organizers and the media have hailed it as an important step toward full gender parity for the movement, hoping this would open doors for more sportswomen from Muslim nations to compete in future Games. The theological debate around male-female equality and distinctive has gone on for centuries. Starting with NARAYAN MITRA the blame game You Gotta Have in the Garden of FAITH Eden, modern feminists and misogynists have been waging wars not worth the salt. The reality of gender discrimination is rooted within a complex set of circumstances that affect women’s lives. These include division of labour, cultural and social expectations and secondary status in household and public life. These issues are couched within the con-

flicting and competing value systems. Some of the changes are attempts to remedy injustice or right the wrongs of groups that have been historically subjected to oppression. Today, it is the extreme and persistent forms of discrimination that have resulted in problems girls and women face in many parts of the world. Many problems are rooted in the patriarchal approach in child-rearing and child-care practices. These partisan methods have become so entrenched in the psyche of the masses that there seems to be no clear-cut method for tackling the issue at individual, familial and societal levels. The Genesis account of Adam-Eve missteps still continues as the butt of jokes in living rooms, as well as from many pulpits. But, of the two, who is really to be blamed for the fall, if any? Traditional Jewish and Christian interpretations in the early chapters of Genesis have led to the heaviest blame falling on Eve for the entrance of sin and death into the world. But, what does the Bible really say about Eve’s participation in the fall? A close reading of the account indicates the difference in God’s dealing with Adam and with Eve. This, plus other related New Testament pas-

sages and Job 31:33 have given sharp focus to the account of the fall. In Genesis 1, God called the creation “very good.” Both man and woman were created in His image and were instructed to multiply, fill the earth and subdue it and to have dominion over living creatures. Adam was to tend the garden prepared for him and keep or guard it. This implies some evil power was seeking to enter the garden. He had the task of looking after a beautiful park and he had fellowship with God. Yet, God saw that it was “not good” for him to be alone and formed woman — a mate, his equal partner and counterpart, of the same essence but different. The woman was to be a strong help. But, of the two, incessant debate has gone on to cross-examine who, is to be blamed for going against God’s decree and lead the rest of humanity into degeneration and ultimate death. Some consider the early chapters of Genesis like parables. We can look at them as the listeners to Jesus and the Apostle Paul must have received them. Jesus, in his reply to the Pharisees, who were testing him on the issue of divorce (Matt. 19:3ff) stated God’s law of marriage as found in Gen. 2:24.

Paul refers to the creation of Adam and Eve in 1 Cor. 11:8-12 and the forming of both and their involvement in the fall in 1 Tim. 2:13-14. He also stated Adam’s guilt in Romans, chapter five. The early chapters of Genesis are presented as the account of our first parents, but they also tell the reader human beings, meant to live for the glory of God by obedience to and in dependence upon Him, have freedom to choose. If they choose wrongly, there can be forgiveness and reinstatement with the CreatorGod through repentance. The worldwide abuse of women and girls in our day is enormous and tragic. Satan is still the archenemy of women (also of man in different ways). Through Christ’s disciple-servants, marked change in attitude and conduct has and is continuing to take place in many cultures. narayanmitra@hotmail.com KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page.
