Council wants no suds sales in stands

ON THE CUP OF HISTORY NIchole Whitaker joins Garet Andrews for a photo with the Grey Cup at Rona’s Mount Paul Way store on Wednesday, Sept. 12. CFL football fans were treated to a breakfast tailgate party organized by the defending Grey Cup champion B.C. Lions and Rona store employees. The Cup is travelling across Canada, stopping in 100 communities as it makes its way east to Toronto, where, on Nov. 25, the 100th Grey Cup game will be played in Rogers Centre. As part of the centennial anniversary of the Grey Cup game, TSN will be airing eight documentaries on the CFL, beginning on Oct. 5. The Cup itself was commissioned in 1909 by then-Governor General Albert Grey, who originally wanted it awarded annually to the Canadian senior men’s hockey champions. Since the Allan Cup had been donated for that purpose, Grey’s Cup was instead directed to Canada’s national football champions — a decision that no doubt delights fans of the three-down league.

By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops city council says beerdrinking Kamloops Blazers fans should have to do a bit of work to get a beverage during games. Council has opted to not endorse a liquor-licence application that would allow hawkers to sell beer and wine in the stands at Interior Savings Centre. City parks, recreation and cultural services director Byron McCorkell said the Western Hockey League club asked for the change to bring ISC in line with other WHL venues, many of which already sell beer in the stands. “They feel that hawking is part of the experience of the rink,” McCorkell said. However, several councillors were concerned the hawkers would encourage hockey fans to drink too much and disrupt the family-friendly atmosphere at the rink. “I think to have it so readily available is to give a bad message to our children,” said Tina Lange. “I think for somebody to get up and burn off a few calories is not a bad thing.” Nancy Bepple said she sees the stands at ISC as a public space and believes asking fans to pass cups of beer down the rows to buyers isn’t fair to non-drinkers, who might be uncomfortable doing so. However, Pat Wallace and Ken Christian argued hawking is more efficient, removes some of the between-period pressure on ISC’s concession stands, and is probably less disruptive than fans going up and down to lounges.

“I hate getting up. No criticism of our recreation facilities, but those seats are not wide,” Wallace said. “Inevitably, someone wants to get by to get a beer and they tramp on your feet and you have to stand up or they’re in your lap. “The discussion sort of takes us back to prohibition in some ways,” Christian added. “We already have drinking in the stands. Do you want to have Mr. Spillycups with his box of popcorn trying to walk in front of you or do you want someone with lids on the containers coming to you?” Nelly Dever pointed out similar sales practices in the NBA, NHL and NFL. “I don’t think we’re promoting and saying that you should drink if you come to a game,” she said. “I don’t drink and I’m not going to start to just because it’s right there.” Donovan Cavers countered by saying that, just because hawking goes on in larger venues, doesn’t mean it’s right for Kamloops. “I think we have a very nice, family-friendly arena,” he said. “And, our hockey team is in the WHL, not the NHL. It’s like comparing apples to peaches.” Only Dever, Wallace and Christian voted to endorse the application. Mayor Peter Milobar, who owns a liquor store, recused himself from the debate. Council doesn’t have the power to veto the liquor-licence application. However, its stance on the issue is one of the factors taken into account by the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch.

LOCAL NEWS THE GOOD-LUCK BUG A ladybug enjoys the sunshine during a late summer day. The little creatures are favourites of children and, in many countries and cultures, considered good luck. Allen Douglas/KTW

Cavers says bylaw caters to big box A Kamloops city councillor says new changes to the city’s business-licensing program are a “free pass for mega-box stores.” Coun. Donovan Cavers was the only member of Kamloops council to vote this week against an update to the business-licence bylaw, which updates fees and introduces a new secondary-licence discount for some businesses. Under the change, a business with more than one licence — for example, a grocery store with a gas bar — would get a discount of about $35 on its second licence. The discount would also apply to contractors, who have to pay for separate licences to do commercial and residential work. Cavers said the change seems to give

large stores an advantage over smaller, centrally located businesses. “To me, it seems like a good way to promote big-box stores,” he said. “I’m certainly more of a supporter of small businesses like we find on Victoria Street and within the downtown core.” Don Garrish, city business licence and land co-ordinator, said the change will affect just over 100 of the city’s largest businesses already paying the highest fees on the scale, about $1,200. Other changes to the bylaw are meant to bring fees more in line with the actual cost of operating the licensing program, Garrish said. The update will also allow more businesses to electronically submit their information to the department.

Singh wants an early start to city’s budget talks Budget talks in Kamloops could start earlier than usual this year. Coun. Arjun Singh submitted a notice of motion this week, asking to set up a workshop to brainstorm ways to create a 2013 budget with no property-tax increase. Singh said he likes the idea of having a workshop because it allows council to get ideas on the table — and, yes, that could include cuts to services — without being beholden to any of them. “I don’t want to give anybody any unrealistic expectation that we’ll be able to hit any tax rate number or not,” he said. “It’s just a question of us sitting down and saying, ‘What ideas do we have?’”

Owner of derelict home gets 30-day extension from council By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A woman whose house was declared a nuisance by Kamloops city council in August has a few more weeks to try to complete a city-ordered inspection on her property. Lynda Watt’s house at 356 McGowan Ave. in North Kamloops was damaged by fire in 2008 and subsequently declared uninhabitable by Interior Health inspectors. Since then, the house has been standing vacant and has been the subject of a number of neighbourhood complaints. However, Watt told city council this week that a report on the state of her property delivered to council in August contains outdated information and doesn’t tell her side of the story. “The house was in bad shape. I am a hoarder, as are both of my parents, as was my sister,” Watt told council. But, she said, she’s

been working hard to clean the mess — up to three hours every night — and has thrown out the worst of the material. She said she has a plan to get the house back to a state in which it can be safely occupied and has already paid for new windows and siding. While she agreed with council that her property needs a professional inspection — which would identify any mould issues and determine whether the structure is able to be renovated and reoccupied — she said she won’t be able to pay for one in the original 30-day period allotted by the city, as she is waiting on money from her mother’s estate. While Coun. Marg Spina suggested council give Watt a six-month extension to complete the report, that was eventually whittled down to one month. If Watt doesn’t have the funds to have the inspection done by Oct. 11, the city will have the option of ordering

Director: Most behind party leader Cummins By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops’ regional director for the B.C. Conservative Party is downplaying reports of infighting within the party and throwing his weight behind leader John Cummins. Al Forseth is one of a halfdozen Conservative directors who have issued a public statement of support for the party leader under the name Friends of John Cummins. The move comes after several prominent party members have called for a review of Cummins’ leadership in advance of next year’s election. A leadership vote is proceeding, with results to be announced at the party’s Sept. 22 annual general meeting in Langley. Cummins must have the support of at least 50 per cent of the party membership to keep his position and Forseth expects him to do quite well in the vote. “There’s a couple of people within the party that, perhaps, are

seeking to have different direction or possibly have different ideas, and there’s nothing wrong with that within a party,” he said. “But, the majority of members are behind John Cummins and we’re moving forward.” Earlier this month, the Province reported on leaked minutes from an in-camera board of directors meeting showing the relationship between Cummins and John van Dongen — the party’s sole MLA, who defected from the B.C. Liberals in March — was deteriorating, with van Dongen feeling “marginalized and ignored.” Party vice-president Ben Besler has also called for a review of Cummins’ leadership, a move that resulted in a vitriolic email from Cummins’ daughter, Carolyn Cummins, who wrote: “A year ago you came across as young, inexperienced and incompetent. I now know my theory to be accurate.” Van Dongen hasn’t publicly spoken for or against Cummins since, but Forseth believes the vet-

eran Abbotsford-South MLA will remain with the party. “As far as I can tell, he’s committed to the B.C. Conservative Party,” Forseth said “He’s indicated, it appears anyway, he wants to stay out of the fray and not influence things in any one direction or the other, and there’s nothing wrong with that.” Forseth said reports of the controversy are “causing a few people to go, ‘Hey, what’s going on?’” in Kamloops. But, he doesn’t see questions about Cummins’ leadership disrupting the nomination process in the city or scaring off potential candidates — of which he said there are at least two for Kamloops-South Thompson and one in the Kamloops-North Thompson riding. The local nomination process is expected to continue through the fall in both ridings. “We’ve got two weeks to our AGM and I’m sure by that point everything will be sorted out and forward we go,” he said.

Preaching to the choir with a song of fearmongering, rhetoric

I

HAVEN’T MADE UP MY mind on the proposed Ajax mine. Maybe it’s a good thing — 400-plus jobs is nothing to ignore. Then again, maybe it’s a bad thing because, so far, I haven’t heard anything from the proponent that convinces me the environment is a priority for it. And, so, I’ve been trying to get information, but that’s been a bit difficult. Multiple emails to the Kamloops Area Preservation Association (KAPA) were ignored until, finally, someone replied and told me I can’t go to its meetings because I’m a reporter. I pointed out I also happen to be a person, a mom, a grandmother and a taxpaying member of the Kamloops community but, in this anonymous person’s mind, I’m only a reporter. I asked for the name of the person replying and that just led to no more replies. I’ve read a lot of the documentation available online, researched the company and even looked into that ominous assertion that KGHM has one of the worst records on environmentalism in Europe. I didn’t go to any of the earlier Ajax-sponsored forums because you had to register and that just really didn’t seem right to me. Other gatherings have been held at times that weren’t convenient for me. But, last Sunday, with the only other option for the day being laundry, I went to a forum hosted by Derek Cook, a professor of political science at Thompson Rivers University. Here are some of the things I heard

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL that made me sort of go, “What?”: First, Coun. Donovan Cavers said that, if the city was to hold a referendum on the mine, it will still likely pass because KGHM has lots of money and can win it. Unless KGHM is going to buy those votes, I really don’t see the linkage here. He then said the province’s mining regulations would supersede the city’s bylaws and that those same regulations come from the 1800s. And his point, if that is even true, is what? Cavers even threw out the idea that, if B.C. NDP election candidates Kathy Kendall and Tom Friedman don’t speak out against the mine, he and fellow councillor Tina Lange might run against them as independents or for the Green party. Coun. Arjun Singh, who was also in the audience, told me he was pretty sure Cavers was kidding. I’m not. People asked where the proof is that Kamloops needs a mine. That, frankly, isn’t the point. This isn’t about community need. It’s about

company need and profits. Don Barz, the head of KAPA, walked people through the steps to find information online about the mine and the proponent and then told the audience KGHM is involved in building a nuclear-power plant in Europe — and that those profits from Ajax will go to that plant. Companies can do what they want with their profits. One member of the audience asked, assuming they can’t stop the mine, how Kamloopsians can be assured the jobs won’t go to immigrants. By then, I was shaking my head and wondering when the mob was going to break out. Let me be clear — the intent of many of the people who are hosting these forums is to make sure information is shared. However, fearmongering and hypotheticals don’t accomplish that. I spoke with a member of KAPA earlier this year who explained to me the reason they don’t want reporters at their meetings is that people like me can’t be trusted to write what they want us to write. That’s one of the reasons I’m writing this column. Because, ignoring the fact I’m a reporter, as someone who went there looking for concrete information on why the group thinks the mine is bad, I was dismayed to see there was lots of rhetoric, simple exaggerations and a whole lot of preaching to the choir. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

Only in the rigid mind of rookie Kamloops Coun. Donovan Cavers could a $35 break to a multi-milliondollar corporation be defined as a “free pass.” Cavers was referring to a city staff plan, which would see businesses with more than one licence — for example, a grocery store with a gas bar — receive a discount of about $35 on its second licence. That would mean companies such as Costco, Safeway and Real Canadian Superstore would get a bit of a break at city hall’s business-licence counter. Thankfully, Cavers was the lone city councillor to oppose this perfectly rational decision. The discount means absolutely little in a practical sense to any of the three stores, or to any other person or company with multiple business licences in Kamloops. What it does do is show existing businesses that city hall has staff that are proactive in doing what they can — however small that may be — to demonstrate Kamloops is cognizant of the cost of doing business. It’s the gesture that matters, to businesses already in Kamloops and to firms contemplating a move here. That is something Cavers does not understand when he takes the “shop local” mantra to annoying extremes. Cavers said the bylaw tweak appeared to him to be a way to “promote big-box stores.” He then reminded one and all that he is a “supporter of small businesses like we find on Victoria Street and within the downtown core.” To patronize independent stores anywhere in Kamloops is laudable, but one can do so without projecting hostility to large corporations that employ untold numbers of Kamloopsians, contribute mightily to this city’s tax base and offer those on the financial edge affordable goods. Cavers needs to be reminded he is a city councillor for all of Kamloops — not just non-corporate Kamloops. Walmart and Costco and Superstore are not evil, despite Cavers’ incessant insistence. They are important cogs in the local economy and can — indeed, do — exist in lockstep with those momand-pop stores our neophyte politician so loves to visit.

C&C helps through the grief Editor: I wish to offer arms full of roses and a thank you to the counsellors of C&C Resources for Life for their ongoing comfort and support through my grieving the death of my daughter. Initially, they helped through the one-on-one sessions with Mary Widmer, counsellor and owner of C&C Resources for Life, supported by the Kamloops Funeral Home. Mary continues to give me strength and guidance, followed up with group support by counsellors Brenda Tynan, Tennille Thomson and Sharen Michael. These counsellors are professional, with degrees in social work, but, just as important, they are very caring, kind and understanding. I encourage anyone who is dealing with the loss of a loved one to attend the drop-in groups at the Centre for Seniors Information at 25-700 Tranquille Rd. or request a reference through their local funeral home.

chased a large parcel of land (Sugarloaf Ranch), suggesting there is confidence the mine will go ahead in spite of public concerns. Like many others, I am not opposed to mining. I recognize the importance of job creation and economic development. I am also aware many steps can be taken to minimize the environmental impact of openpit mines. I also know — with absolute certainty — that having an open-pit mine that big and that close will, without a doubt, negatively affect the quality of life for all citizens of Kamloops now and for future generations. The fundamental questions are not so much about noise, dust, water, health and jobs. The real question is whether it is right for a few to enjoy economic benefits at the expense of many. If we endorse this way of thinking, when does it end? How great does the cost need to be before we collectively say, “Enough!”? If we say it is not right that a few should benefit at the expense of many, how can this message be communicated clearly before projects like this even get off the starting block? Our elected officials (at every level of government) have failed us miserably in this regard. How was the KGHM-Ajax project even allowed to get this far? Our elected officials must now come out from behind the bafflegab of political correctness and stop the KGHMAjax project from proceeding, regardless of what the environmental review says. I expect those in leadership to do the right thing. Then again, I also expected Norm Thompson to call me.

Editor: In my letter to the editor three months ago, I shared my opinion that the proponents of the KGHM Ajax mine have not adequately explained to the residents of Kamloops why the mine is needed and why it is needed now. I suggested ongoing debates about the advantages and disadvantages of the mine have only drawn attention away from these fundamental questions. Following the publication of my letter, I expected I might receive a call from KGHMAjax public-relations man Norm Thompson. I imagined Thompson would kindly explain to me the importance of proceeding with the project and that he would make some effort to convince me, a citizen, about the need to exploit the minerals as soon as possible. I did not receive a call and the questions I raised remain unanswered. In the spring, I participated in a telephone interview about “mining in B.C”. I found the wording of the questions bothersome because they did not allow me to respond with my true thoughts. I felt I could choose between admitting my ignorance of mining or enthusiastically supporting it. After objecting to the wording of the questions, I asked who had commissioned the survey and was told, at the end of the survey, it was commissioned by KGHM-Ajax. I did not receive any call to follow up and so the questions and concerns I raised remain unanswered. Others have pointed out “public hearings” have been renamed “workshops”. The not-so-subtle message seems to be that anyone with concerns simply needs to become better informed. KGHM-Ajax recently pur-

Strauss files lawsuit against Daily News, doctor

Kamloops company claims column was ‘malicious, defamatory’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A well-known local herbal supplement company is suing the Kamloops Daily News in connection to a column published in the newspaper earlier this year — a column described in court documents as including “false, malicious and defamatory” statements. Strauss Herb Company claims an April 2, 2012, column by Russ Reid, a retired doctor, was meant to make Kamloops Daily News readers think Strauss customers were being duped. A statement of claim filed by Strauss in B.C. Supreme Court states the column left the impression the herbal-supplement

company is “involved in a conspiracy to defraud gullible consumers by conning them into buying Strauss Heart Drops, a worthless health product which, to the knowledge of the plaintiffs [Strauss] has no medical benefit or therapeutic value.” The column was in response to a KTW front-page story nearly a month earlier — in the March 6, 2012 edition — titled Strauss claims victory, describing the fact Strauss Heart Drops had received natural-health designation from Health Canada. In its statement of claim, Strauss took particular issue with one paragraph of Reid’s column — which stated Strauss “has refused to reveal

its formula and put standard specific information about the ingredients on its product label.” Reid went on to compare Strauss to 19th-century snakeoil salesmen and New York Ponzi-scheme con man Bernie Madoff. The court document claims the column was intended to cause “hatred, ridicule and contempt” toward Strauss. The company states the Kamloops Daily News was asked to run a retraction and apology — something it claims was never published. There is no dollar amount included in Strauss’s statement of claim, but the company is seeking general damages, aggravated damages, exemplary

and punitive damages, special damages, interest and costs, in addition to a court order barring the Kamloops Daily News from “any further publication of the defamatory expression complained of.” The Kamloops Daily News responded, in documents filed last week, with a counterclaim against Strauss, alleging false advertising and seeking orders from the court that Strauss stop making exaggerated claims about its products. The newspaper also denied any malice in publishing Reid’s column and claimed it was a matter of public

interest — specifically citing reader comments under the column when it was published online, including a number of “intemperate remarks” from a user traced back to a Strauss computer. “Strauss Co. has thereby been provided with a voice on the matters of public interest by the defendants and with an opportunity to publicly rebut the facts and comments contained in the column,” the paper’s response reads. It’s not known if or when the matter may go before a judge. None of the claims have been proven in court.

Driver blows ďŹ ve times legal blood-alcohol limit A delivery-truck driver will likely face impaired-driving charges after a minor accident at a busy Sahali intersection on Tuesday, Sept. 11 — after which, police say, the man blew five times the legal blood-alcohol limit. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said police were investigating a possible drunk driver at about 3:45 p.m. in the 800-block of Notre Dame Drive after a witness reported seeing a five-ton delivery truck rolling through a parking lot and an apparently drunk man getting behind the wheel.

POLICE BEAT

While an officer was headed to that report, Learned said, he happened upon an accident at Notre Dame and Summit drives involving the same truck and an Acura Integra. Learned said the 42-year-old truck driver was arrested, with tests later showing he had five times the legal blood-alcohol limit in his system. The driver of the Acura, a 32-year-old woman, complained of stiff muscles following the collision.

Highway 5A wreck It looked catastrophic at first — dozens of smashed-up cars and a semi-trailer tipped onto its side on a windy stretch of Highway 5A south of Kamloops. But, according to Learned, the wreck at about 4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 11, turned out to be a fairly minor case of a

speeding trucker losing his load of crushed vehicles. “Some of the initial calls, they thought they were coming up to a major car crash,� Learned said. “The initial calls in to our 911 system were that there was a catastrophic crash.� Learned said the spilled load was blocking the highway, leaving 5A closed for two hours. In the end, the driver — a 32-year-old Abbotsford man — was given a ticket and treated for bumps and bruises. “It appeared that the truck was travelling too fast,� Learned said. “He was also taken to Royal Inland Hospital, where he was reported to have minor injuries.�

Bank threat A Kamloops man could face serious charges after allegedly threatening to blow up a bank after having his loan application turned down. Police were called to a North Shore bank on Tuesday, Sept. 11, to investigate a threat made by a disgruntled client. Learned said a 50-year-old man had been denied a loan earlier in the day at a downtown branch of the same bank. Following that, investigators believe, he told an employee he was going to burn his house down. Learned said the man then went to the North Shore branch and was denied the loan again. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that time, [the suspect] was alleged to have told an employee blood would be shed there,â&#x20AC;?

Digital signs OK — but not too flashy Digital signs with changeable displays will now be allowed in Kamloops, but the city isn’t planning on letting them get too flashy. Under new regulations passed by city council, signs will be able to change display copy once every 10 minutes, or as often as every 10 seconds if they’re on a lot with more than 75 metres of frontage. But animation effects, scrolling letters, colour changes and other types of motion aren’t permitted. City planner Blake Collins said that’s because the movement could distract drivers.

Green light for downtown hotel reno A $4 million renovation of a downtown Kamloops hotel is proceeding. Kamloops city council has agreed to a development permit for the former Canadian Inn at 339 St. Paul

Street that will see the existing five-storey building converted to a DoubleTree Hotel.

KFR is getting a bouncy castle Kamloops firefighters are adding another tool to their arsenal — and this time, it’s bouncy. Members of Kamloops Fire Rescue were at council Sept. 11 to get permission to purchase an inflatable house to teach children about fire safety. The house is similar to a bouncy castle, but with messages about fire safety printed on its walls and inflatable versions of common household hazards inside. It also contains a slide shaped like a fire truck. Both the bouncy house and a trailer to haul it in will be paid with about $30,000 the firefighters have raised from service groups in the city, including the YMCA/YWCA.

Medicine in early Kamloops Natives had healing rituals and treatments long before Europeans arrived in the Thompson Valley, using tree roots and bark, leaves and berries to treat ailments. When traders and settlers began arriving in the area in the 19th century, though, they brought with them â&#x20AC;&#x153;modern medicineâ&#x20AC;?. An 1877 supply list for Fort Kamloops included a number of medicinal ingredients. Among them were cod liver oil, stick and powdered sulphur, seidlitz powders, chlorodyne, bitter aloes, tartaric acid, powdered rhubarb, copaiba balsam and cherry pectoral â&#x20AC;&#x201D; all of which were recognized medicines of the time. Some of the more vague remedies on the list were Black Draught, Blue Pills, Seven Seals, Golden Wonder, Wrightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sugar-coated Pills, Mustang Liniment, Kennedyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medical Discovery, Abolition Oil, Cocklesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Pills and Perryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Painkiller. All of this was six years before there was even a doctor in the area.

Where pucks now ďŹ&#x201A;y, patients did lie

T

HIS MONTH MARKS THE 100TH anniversary of Royal Inland Hospital on its present site at Third Avenue and Columbia Street, but the institution is actually nearly 30 years older. What would become RIH started at the corner of Third Avenue and Lorne Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the land occupied today by Interior Savings Centre. The building â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first hospital in B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Interior â&#x20AC;&#x201D; came about only after a series of public meetings in 1884 at Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first courthouse, a log building on what is now West Victoria Street. Completed in November 1885 at a cost of $3,900 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than $1,000 under budget â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; original hospital was nothing more than a two-storey wood-frame house with wrap-around balconies on both levels, sitting on one acre of riverfront property. The first medical officer was Dr. Simon J. Tunstall, who had in 1883 been appointed the local Company Doctor by Canadian Pacific Railway. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hurt that he was, at the time, the only physician in town. Tunstallâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual salary in the first years of the hospitalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life was $400. He was forced to resign in 1887 after falling ill and choosing to focus on his private practice. He was replaced by Dr. Ed Furrer, who received a yearly salary of $800.

That was also the year the hospital employed its first female nurse, Matron Eleanor Potter. Renovations on the building began in 1891, creating a 15-bed hospital with five wards. In February 1896, Canadaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parliament passed a bill incorporating the institution as Royal Inland Hospital. In May of that year, work began on a womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ward â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a separate building just west of the main structure. However, 1896 also brought controversy for the newly named RIH. Complaints were common â&#x20AC;&#x201D; alleging delays in admissions and early discharge, as well as a lack of a palliative-care facility. Furrer â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who had by then become a popular figure in Kamloops society, serving as an alderman and school trustee in addition to his medical duties â&#x20AC;&#x201D; died in 1898. He was replaced by Dr. Arthur Procter, who earned a salary of $1,000 per year. Procter became the centre of another hospital controversy himself in 1904, when Kamloopsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; three other physicians appealed to the local health board for a â&#x20AC;&#x153;change in systemsâ&#x20AC;? to allow them greater access to RIHâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s facilities. The doctors felt Procter, as the only practitioner drawing a paycheque from the hospital, had an unfair advantage over other doctors. For two months, the controversy dominated local headlines. The liberal Kamloops Sentinel â&#x20AC;&#x201D; under

editor Dr. Mark Wade, one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s other physicians â&#x20AC;&#x201D; argued dirty politics on the part of the health board, while the conservative Kamloops Standard took Procterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s side. A ruling after a subsequent provincial investigation gave other local doctors more freedom to use RIH. Procter left Kamloops a short time later to start a clinic in Vancouver and was succeeded by his former assistant, Dr. J.S. Burris. Also in 1904, RIH constructed an isolation ward on Mission Flats, meant to house patients with infectious diseases. The building proved inadequate and would eventually be replaced by a larger brick structure on Columbia Street. The following year, 1905, saw the construction of the Trafalgar Wing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an expansion that doubled the number of beds at RIH. By then, a nurseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training school was up and running at the hospital. Amy Taylor, the first graduate, received her designation in 1907. But, the old building on Lorne Street, despite two decades of seemingly constant renovations, was in need of a replacement. Prior to 1910, a campaign had begun in Kamloops to erect a new RIH. It was completed at its present-day location in time for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s centennial celebrations of 1912.

Address from R.A. Bethune, chair of Kamloops hospital board, to the Duke and Duchess of Connaught at the grand opening of RIH, just before handing the Duke a gold key to open the hospital doors (Sept. 17, 1911): “To His Royal Highness the Duke of Connaught and Strathearn Knight of the most noble order of the Garter, Knight of the most illustrious order of St. Patrick: May it please Your Royal Highness. We the members of the board of directors of the Royal Inland Hospital desire to convey to Your Royal Highness our sincere appreciation of the great honour you have conferred upon the hospital by your presence at the opening of this building, erected to replace one which has become totally inadequate for the requirements of the district which it serves. We further desire to express a hope that the key now presented to Your Royal Highness may be accepted as a memento of the occasion; that under God’s providence the door which it unlocks may be always open to the afflicted and injured and that hope may enter with all who pass the portal of the house today dedicated by Your Royal Highness to the cause of humanity.”

Kamloops’ first doctor On Aug. 28, 1863, Kamloops welcomed its first trained physician — but he didn’t stay long. Dr. Walter Butler Cheadle travelled down the North Thompson with a group of friends one year after the Overlanders made the same journey. Cheadle wrote about the visit in his diary, describing a meeting with Jean Baptiste Lolo St. Paul. The European party was fed, treated to a dance and stayed overnight. The next day, they crossed the South Thompson and stayed in the abandoned Old Fort for 10 days. During that time, Cheadle treated St. Paul — referred to in his diary as “the old boy with a bad leg” — making their interaction, on Sept. 3, 1863, the first between a doctor and patient in Kamloops.

Remedies from the 19th century

Construction (left) and completion of Royal Inland Hospital resulted in Columbia Street and Third Avenue becoming home to a hospital for 100 years — and counting as the Interior Health Authority’s RIH Master Plan has secured $320-million in funding to greatly expand the facility in stages in the coming years.

AN RIH REGAL OPENING It was mid-afternoon on a Tuesday in September when all of the school children in Kamloops gathered outside the awe-inspiring new building atop a hill on Columbia Street. The girls in their white dresses and the boys in their lightcoloured dress shirts sang as the guests of honour stepped out onto a temporary stage. The date was Sept. 17, 1912, and the children had gathered — along with most of Kamloops’ population — to watch the Duke and Duchess of Connaught offi-

cially open Royal Inland Hospital. The royal couple had arrived in Kamloops about an hour earlier, at 3 p.m., aboard a specially outfitted train that came from the Rocky Mountains. They were in Kamloops to open RIH and to help the city celebrate its 100th birthday. Upon arrival at the Canadian Pacific Railway station on Lorne Street, the Duke and Duchess — along with their daughter, Princess Patricia — were met by local politicians, military officials and Tk’emlups

Indian Band Chief Louie. They were then taken on a brief tour of the city by car. “During the ride through the city with military escort, the members of the Royal party expressed surprise at the many evidences of modern improvements in the place, the fine lighting system, concrete sidewalks, and the general prosperous appearance of the whole community,” read a story in the Kamloops Standard.

“The reception given by the public was warm and cordial and all along the route were cheering crowds while even down in Chinatown the celestial welcome was every bit as hearty.” By the time the royal guests arrived at RIH, the throngs of residents who greeted them with cheers at the train station had made the hike up to Third Avenue and Columbia Street. The crowd gathered around the temporary stage outside the brand

new hospital building — blocking the view of the school children, who were singing Maple Leaf Forever. “Hardly had the first shrill soprano notes been raised when the Duke smilingly motioned aside the plug-hatted gentlemen and the handsomely gowned ladies and he and the Duchess and Princess Patricia walked over to the railing,” the Standard story read.

Have a cold? Hopefully you also have goose grease and turpentine. You’re going to want to mix the two together, rub the concoction on your chest — and you’re healed. For a cough and sore throat, why not try cooking salt pork in hot vinegar? Then, fasten the pork around your neck with a piece of red flannel. All out of salt pork and vinegar? Try wrapping a dirty sock around your neck. Need a painkiller? Try cocaine drops — marketed specifically for teething children in the 1880s — or heroin syrup. In addition to substances now illegal, other medicines of the time included dangerous ingredients like mercury and lead. Has a threshing accident left one of your limbs in rough shape? Don’t worry, the barber can help. In rural areas in the 1800s, before doctors were readily available, barbers routinely performed emergency amputations. The patient would be plied with alcohol, the affected limb sawed off and the veins and arteries cauterized with hot tar. Have a toothache? With no dentists in town until the 1900s, you would have been out of luck. But, don’t fret — barbers, butchers, blacksmiths and even farmers were allowed to advertise their tooth-pulling services, which involved cutting the gums around the tooth and using a tool called a “turnkey.”

Celebrating 100 years of RIH To learn more about the hospital’s history, patients and visitors are invited to peruse archived photos on display in the main hospital lobby. On Friday, Sept. 14, volunteers will serve cake to staff, visitors and patients, while at 7:30 p.m., a time-lapse photo project will be undertaken at the hospital.

“All three graciously acknowledged greeting of the singers and by the kindly and thoughtful act gave the little ones a view of their presence which would have been otherwise denied the children, who were as cosmopolitan as the crowds on the streets, there being Chinese and Japanese, fair-haired Scandinavians and negroes and Indians, representatives of nearly every racial characteristic on the globe, but everyone sang Canada’s national song with a vim that could not be excelled by the most enthusiastic of the native born.” The ceremony got underway with an address from city clerk J.J.

most westerly gate of the Empire.” “We are convinced that the present visit of Your Royal Highness in the most westerly of the provinces in the Dominion will make for increased interest in this outpost of the Empire, and lead to increased knowledge of its immense potentialities and boundless resources,” Carment said. “We desire to assure Your Royal Highness of our unmixed loyalty and devotion to the British crown and His Majesty’s person.” The Duke, in his reply, congratulated Kamloops on its 100th birthday. “I am very pleased that my visit comes at the moment you are celebrating the centenary of your foundation and it is more interesting to see what

has been achieved here since Kamloops was first settled by the fur traders a hundred years ago,” he said. “That you have drawn full profit from the various advantages conferred on you by nature is very evident and I wish you to accept my heartfelt wishes for the success of Kamloops and all its enterprises in the future.” After presentations of a fruit basket and bouquets to the royal visitors, R. A. Bethune, chair of the local hospital board, took to the podium. With a gold key in his hand — “made of British Columbia gold,” according to the Standard — Bethune thanked the Duke and Duchess for attending and expressed hope about the future of health care in Kamloops.

Bethune handed the Duke the key and the ceremony came to an end. “The hospital was formally opened, after which the party inspected the building, which is one of the finest institutions of its kind in the whole West and equal in point of equipment, if not in size, to any similar institution anywhere,” the Standard story stated. The celebrations then moved on to Riverside Park, where the royal guests were treated to a parade and historical pageant before the Duke dropped the ceremonial ball on a lacrosse game. By nightfall, the Duke and Duchess of Connaught and Princess Patricia were back on the rails, headed west. And Kamloops, after its brief royal whirlwind, was finally home to a state-of-the-art hospital.

The Better Business Bureau is warning the public to be cautious about door-to-door heating contractors who may use misleading sales tactics to convince homeowners to buy a new furnace or hotwater tank. In one recent scenario, a consumer was sold a hot-water tank by a company that stated it was a 2011 model when, in reality, the tank was from 2003. This same contractor is operating around British Columbia, does not have proper safety licensing and is having residents issue cheques with no companycontact information for payments. In the past, the BBB has received reports of con artists who tried to frighten consumers into purchases with warnings their heating system were leaking dangerous gases that could explode or poison those inside the home. Before you choose a heating contractor, consider the following tips: • Start with the BBB. You can find out helpful information by visiting the company’s businessreview section online at mbc.bbb.org. • Hire heating contractors who are licensed with the BC Safety Authority (call 1-866-566-7233, employ certified gas fitter; are bonded and insured for liability and property damage.

Local financial planner to learn sentencing fate By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A disgraced Kamloops financial planner who admitted to scamming eight former clients out of more than $300,000 is expected to return to

court today (Sept. 13) to learn his fate. The Crown wants Ed Chieduch locked up for two years in a federal prison. The 58-year-old used forged investment documents to swindle clients in a Ponzi scheme during a five-year span dat-

ing back to 2005. At a hearing in June, court heard he told police he’d been suckered into a so-called Nigerian email scam and was covering his own losses with his clients’ cash. In 2010, Chieduch had his licence yanked

by the Insurance Council of B.C. — at about the same time a police investigation into his actions was getting off the ground. Chieduch pleaded guilty in May and was initially supposed to be sentenced on June 7. That hearing

was pushed back first to July and then to September. In addition to the criminal charges, a number of Chieduch’s victims have filed lawsuits against him. He was also sued by the company from which he used to

rent office space in a Victoria Street building. In previous court appearances, Chieduch’s victims have been identified as ranging from a recently divorced single mother to a small-business owner to a deceased woman’s estate.

ED CHIEDUCH: The Crown wants a two-year federal prison term.

ICBC claims centre to be picketed One-day strike set for Tuesday, Sept. 18

SE SA VI PT H SIT EMAL U S B IM A ER A T 15 LL –3 0

The Kamloops location on Battle Street will be among 55 ICBC claims centres expected to be behind picket lines next week. The Canadian Office and Professional Employees (COPE) Union Local 378 has announced that more than 1,500 members throughout B.C. will be taking strike action on Tuesday, Sept. 18. “These are employees who have been without a contract for over two years,” said COPE 378 ICBC president David Black. “Their wages are falling behind, while ICBC executives and business partners got massive salary increases and $1.2 billion of ICBC profits went into government revenues.” “Striking is never an easy decision and we sincerely hoped our strike action on Sept. 5, when we co-ordinated with the BCGEU and the PEA, would help ICBC focus on reaching a fair and reasonable

collective agreement. “But, ICBC’s attitude hasn’t changed.” Black said the newest job action is part of an escalating union strategy aimed at getting ICBC back to the bargaining table. ICBC’s last offer was a two percent wage increase over a fouryear contract. “Our members felt it was very important to take another day of action so they could talk to the public about how the government is mishandling ICBC, not just for the workers but also for drivers that haven’t seen a rate reduction in years,” Black said. Most of the locations that will be on strike on Sept. 18 were not part of last week’s joint strike with the PEA and BCGEU. Essential Service levels will be maintained at all striking locations. COPE 378 represents 4,600 workers at ICBC.

A great big Thank You to everyone who participated in the

Kamloops Kia Community Clean Up Day 2012 What a success! We had members from the Kamloops Storm, Kamloops Broncos, Kamloops Youth Soccer Association, Communities in Bloom, as well as the general public. This year we chose to tackle MacArthur Island Park, and when all the hard work was done, a barbecue was held at the BC Urban Grill for the volunteers. Kia Canada’s Drive Change campaign has had tremendous response since its inception.

Rogers, a veteran broadcast journalist and host of The Next Chapter on CBC Radio, and Aboriginal Healing Foundation executive director DeGagné are two of the editors of the volume, and will be in Kamloops to launch the book-club edition of the publication. They will be joined by one of the book’s contributors, SFU professor emeritus and cultural critic Miki, as well as by Secwepemc artist, curator and cultural organizer Willard, who will both discuss their work in the con-

text of the possibilities and problems of reconciliation. Edited by Rogers, DeGagné and Jonathan Dewar, the volume is distilled from the Aboriginal Healing Foundation’s three-volume series Truth and Reconciliation. The texts reflect upon the lived and living experiences and legacies of residential schools and, more

broadly, reconciliation in Canada. Speaking My Truth: Reflections on Reconciliation and Residential Schools is now available. English, French and Inuktitut versions can be ordered directly online at speakingmytruth.com — free of charge. Rogers’ CBC interview with DeGagné, broadcast on June 4 on The

Next Chapter, can be heard online at http:// podcast.cbc.ca/mp3/ podcasts/nextchapter_20120604_21838. mp3. Monday’s event at Thompson Rivers University is free and open to the public. It is sponsored by the Aboriginal Healing Foundation, the Centre for Innovation in Culture and the Arts in Canada and the Thompson Rivers University Office of Research and Graduate Studies. The Irving K.

Barber British Columbia Center is adjacent to the Brown

Family House of Learning. Parking in the eve-

ning on the Thompson Rivers University campus is free.

Blasphemy case sympton of caste system GWYNNE DYER World WATCH

“It’s a caste factor, because [the victims] belong to the poorest and most marginalized people. “Unfortunately, they are Christians and this caste system creates lots of problems.” Islam teaches the equality of all believers, but the caste system is alive and kicking in Pakistan. Go far enough back and almost all Pakistani Muslims are descended from Hindus — and, when communithose Hindu communi Islam, ties converted to Islam they retained their ideas and prejudices about caste. This was particularly disheartening for groups at the bottom of the caste pecking order, who had hoped thatt Islam th I l would ld free f them. When the British Empire arrived in the area, therefore, it was the poorest and most despised section of the population that converted to Christianity. So, everybody knows most Christians are really “untouchables.” The argument that got Bibi in trouble, for example, broke out when some of her Muslim fellow workers refused to drink the water she had fetched because Christians are “unclean.” The Hindu minority is mostly just as low-

Baill iis not normally ll granted in blasphemy cases but, on Sept. 8, Rimsa was freed on bail and a military helicopter lifted her out of the prison yard and into hiding. And Paul Bhatti, the minister for national harmony — whose brother and predecessor Shahbaz was murdered last year — broke a political taboo by explaining why ordinary Pakistanis are more hostile to the religious minorities in their midst than most Muslims elsewhere. “It is not just a religious problem,” Bhatti said.

caste as the Christians, and equally vulnerable. Together they are only six million out of 187-million Pakistanis, but they account for the vast majority of blasphemy accusations. In many cases, these accusations are merely a convenient weapon for Muslims engaged in land disputes and other quarrels with members of the minority groups.

“I began selling Student 1st chocolates 6 months ago. The youth program has helped me with better communication, being more confident with people in face to face scenarios. It has also helped me gain a grade point in school because of my new math skills. Since starting I have enjoyed spending money as well as learning to manage money. It felt great buying gifts for my family last Christmas without asking help with cash. Having a new laptop is awesome and I believe it will enhance my learning in school. I am very grateful for the job skills I have aquired selling Student 1st chocolate and I feel that the experience gained here will help me in life. Thanks for the opportunity and I am very gratefull for the awesome new laptop. I think Gary has been a great role model for young people.”

with this corrupt law and to protect its victims. The Rimsa Masih case is a hopeful sign — but Pakistan still has a long way to go before all of its citizens are really equal under the law.

STUDENTS OF THE MONTH

The bodyguard was tried for murder and convicted, but he was treated as a hero by many Pakistanis and the judge who sent him to prison had to flee the country. Two months later, the only Christian member of Pakistan’s cabinet, Shahbaz Bhatti, was also shot dead when he spoke out against the blasphemy laws. Since then, almost nobody has dared to criticize them. Bibi remains in prison awaiting execution. Her entire family, including her five children, live in hiding and cannot work or go to school. And, while the higher courts would once have thrown out her conviction — they have overturned hundreds of sentences for blasphemy imposed by lower courts that were too vulnerable to local pressures — she can no longer even be confident of that possibility.

So, the outlook seemed grim for Rimsa when she was arrested last month — but, then, the imam who had called the police, Hafiz Mohammad Khalid Chisti, was arrested for doctoring the evidence. His own deputy had seen him adding pages from the Quran to the young Christian’s bag. “I asked him what he was doing,” the deputy told a television station, “and he said this is the evidence against them [the local Christians] and this is how we can get them out from this area.” Two other witnesses came forward against Chisti and Hafiz Mohammad Ashrafi, the chairman of the All Pakistan Ulema Council, a body of senior Muslim clerics, declared that: “Our heads are bowed with shame for what Chisti did.” Ashrafi added Chisti was acting on behalf of a group that wanted to drive out the Christian minority in the area. “I have known for the last three months that some people in this area wanted the Christian community to leave so they could build a madrasa [on their land].” They have already succeeded: Some 300 Christian families have fled in fear for their lives and they probably won’t be back.

I

T WAS A WELCOME CHANGE FROM THE USUAL STORY: A Christian or a Hindu Pakistani accused of blasphemy on flimsy grounds, tried and sentenced to prison — or found innocent, set free and then murdered by some Muslim fanatic. This time was different. The victim was a 14-year-old Christian girl, Rimsa Masih, who is believed to have Down syndrome. She was stopped by a young Muslim man who found the halfburned remnants of a book in her carrier bag that allegedly included verses from the Quran. He told the local imam, who called the police, and she was arrested. This kind of story usually ends badly in Pakistan. Two years ago, for example, a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, was arrested for insulting the Prophet Mohammad while arguing with fellow farm workers. She was sentenced to death by hanging, but it was such a manifest injustice that the governor of Punjab province, Salman Taseer, publicly called for the repeal of the blasphemy law. He was assassinated by his own bodyguard in January 2011.

JIM CLEMONT 1944-2012

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

NORMAN ROBERT SYRETT Nov 12, 1923 – Sept 7, 2012 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our dad, grandpa and great-grandpa, Norm Syrett.

The world lost an amazing man on September 7, 2012 at 4:00 am.

The greatest gift Jim gave to his children and all who knew him ... was himself.

Besides his family, Jim is survived by his 7 grandchildren; Clay, Grace, Katy, Odessa, Nathan, Kayden and Justin, his beloved dog, Dixie, and his darling cat, Annie ‘2’. They are his certainty for a better world. Jim leaves a legacy of a man who lived his life with integrity and an incredible ability to teach others. He lived his life on purpose. He was Uncle Jim to Carol, Eli, Gail, Victoria, Shiela, Brenda, Ken, Terri, Jeanne, Bobbie Marie, Cody. Jim is also survived by 3 sisters; Vernetta,Vivian and Hazel and one brother Mel. Jim has a brother-in-law Mal, married to Norma Jean and a sisterin-law Marlene. No formal services by request. No flowers. The family would be grateful for any donations to the Kamloops Hospice House. A huge thank you from the family to Jim’s medical team, Dr. Baker, Dr. Proctor, Missagh Manshardi and all the nurses who attended Jim at the Royal Inland Hospital. Also the family is extremely grateful for the help and support of the Kamloops Hospice team. Their dedicated care and support made Jim’s final moments bearable. Arrangements have been entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 All condolences can be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Norm was born in Toronto, Ontario. He enjoyed Àshing as a boy with his Dad and delivering hundreds of papers in downtown Toronto. Later, he worked in a government ofÀce and met his future wife, Muriel, while singing in the church choir at Waverly Road Baptist Church. They were married June 23, 1953. Sharon was born Aug 12, 1956 and Heather was adopted 6 years later into the family at 6 months of age. The family moved to Kamloops in 1966 where Norm worked in security at the Navy Depot and later as a BSW at Tranquille until his retirement in 1988. Norm greatly enjoyed Àshing, walking, biking, and playing tennis. He was a quiet man who enjoyed people one or two at a time. He was always appreciative when someone helped him or gave him words of encouragement. A huge thank you to the staff at Pinegrove Care Centre. You were like Dad’s second family. Special thanks to Trish, Angie, Paul, Anne, and John. Thanks to you and the rest of the staff who took such good care of Dad in his later years and a big support to our family.

Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

She touched many people and we all enjoyed her visits back to Kamloops.

Don’t cry for me now I’m gone For I am In the land of song There is no pain, there is no fear So dry away that silent tear Don’t think of me in the dark and cold For here I am, no longer old I’m in that place that’s filled with love Known to you all as “UP ABOVE”.

I found a penny today, Just laying on the ground But it’s not just a penny, This little coin I’ve found. “Found” pennies come from heaven, That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down; Oh, how I loved that story. He said when an angel misses you, They toss a penny down Sometimes just to cheer you ou up, Make a smile out of your frown own So don’t pass by that penny, When you’re feeling blue It may be a penny from heaven That an angel tossed to you.

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

Storm have big skates to fill By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

R

EPLACING 111 goals and 254 points is no small task. That’s one of the challenges facing Kamloops Storm general manager Barry Dewar and head coach Brad Priestlay this season. Those numbers were produced in the 2011-2012 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League campaign by graduated 1991-born forwards Colten DeFrias, Chase Edwards and Tyler Jackson. “They were three of the top scorers in the

league,” Dewar said. “But, in the long run, it probably works out. You can’t just shut down one line anymore.” Kamloops opens the 2012-2013 regular season against the Spokane Braves at 7 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 14, at McArthur Island Sports Centre. DeFrias and Jackson will suit up for the TRU WolfPack in the fall. The Storm will rely on a few new faces and some returning talent to fill the scoring void. Connor Fortems, a 17-year-old forward from Delta, is expected to inject some offence into the lineup. “We’re really excited

about this kid,” Dewar said. “There were several junior B teams after him. We saw him at camp with the [junior A] Victoria Grizzlies in May. “He’s just a big strong kid that likes to go to the net and I think he’s going to be very, very good. “I hope we keep him for a while.” Taylor Ward, a forward, and Spencer Schoech, a defenceman — both from south of the border — are among the new Storm recruits, along with Langley products Aaron Markin, a forward, and D-man Jason Anderson. Returning to the

fold are forwards Blake Culbert, Briar McNaney, Ryan Skinner and Josh Rasmussen, with Daniel Buchanan expected to provide scoring from the blue line. The Storm will not be without fresh local flavour, with forwards Ian Chrystal, a Kamloops player who featured in only 13 Storm games last season, and Brett Watkinson, from Lillooet, expected to contribute regularly. Kamloops will no doubt benefit from the return of 1992-born netminder Marcus Beesley. The Prince George product posted a 9-3

record and a .937 save percentage last season. Kamloops was beaten by the Sicamous Eagles in Game 7 of the Doug Birks Division final in March. Sicamous fell 4-1 in the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference-deciding series to the Kelowna Chiefs, who were swept 4-0 in the KIJHL championship by the Beaver Valley Nitehawks. Addressing the loss of three key veterans will be key if Kamloops is going to take the next step. “We’ll probably be scoring by committee this season,” Dewar said. “It will be a little different than last year.”

The TRU WolfPack will likely have a varsity swimming program by 2014, says the Kamloops university’s athletic director, Ken Olynyk. “We’re interested in moving swimming, cross-country and soccer to the Canada West,” Olynyk said. “That will be presented in February at [Canada West] winter meetings and at the annual general meeting (AGM) in May.” The Canada West is a member association of Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). There is a very slim chance the swimming program — run under the WolfPack name in conjunction with the Kamloops Classic Swimming club — could be a Canada West entity by next September, but that’s unlikely. “It would require a 100 per cent approval vote [from every member school at the May AGM] in order to start in September,” Olynyk said. “If one school says ‘No, we want to wait,’ then it’s automatic for the next year.” Olynyk said it’s uncommon to receive a unanimous vote because program administrators need time to adjust travel budgets and “sort out their financial situations.” Classics’ head coach Brad Dalke would take the WolfPack’s reins, with help from the local swim team’s new assistant coach, Patrick Waters. (Read more about Waters in the Tuesday, Sept. 18, edition of KTW.) “For us, a natural

extension of our program is to have this available for all our kids to continue swimming, rather than going from Kamloops to the University of Victoria or Simon Fraser University or the University of Calgary,” Dalke said. There is plenty of number crunching still to be done, but the Classics and WolfPack will each carry a portion of the financial burden. “Prior to this, we didn’t want to run [a varsity program] because we’d be pretty much fully funding it,” Dalke said. “But, [TRU is] coming to the table with enough funding to make it worthwhile.” Recruiting and travel costs will be among the dearest for the new program, coaches are paid and buying more pool time at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre will be on the to-do list. The Classics are coming off arguably their most successful season in club history. Kamloops had 18 swimmers qualify for the Canadian Age Group Championships (for boys 18 and under and girls 17 and under) this summer in Calgary. Many of those swimmers are already posting Canada Westcomparable times — and some of the Classics are recording times that might warrant qualification for the CIS championships. “We’re really starting to see some exciting stuff happen from this region,” Dalke said. “It’s like an avalanche.” Dylana Milobar, 16, of the Classics won rookie of the meet at the national summer swimming championships in Edmonton in July.

Injuries a painful part of the process

SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS time sitting on the sidelines with my notebook. On the plus side, injury serves a purpose. When we can’t do something for a period of time, we cherish it even more when it comes back into our lives. When I can actually get out on the trails again, I will think I’m the luckiest person alive. I will be in awe. It will really help offset the gasping breaths and screaming muscles because it will have been so long since I propelled myself forward on my own two feet. A friend of mine has also been dealing with injury lately. She said it no longer became about doing her events like Ironman and ultra-distance running. It became about wanting to be painfree to play with her daughter and walk to the park. Recently, after months of rehab, she completed another Ironman.

So many people have real issues and would give almost anything to be able to swim, bike and run. Her time became immaterial. Ah, rehab. I have such an amazing physiotherapist and we are spending a lot of time together lately. I have never been great at doing what she tells me, but this time I’m determined. I do my rehab exercises every day. Heel drops are my friend. Jumping and hopping, not so much. I made the mistake of running a few steps to my car the other day and was humbled back to a walk. It will take time and patience, but I admit I did it to myself and now I have to step up and pay the price. Funny how I can wrap my head around riding for three 19-hour days, but three sets of heel drops every day and a few stretches really cramp my style. Time to reboot my brain and take some time to heal and regenerate. Shawn Wenger is a BCRPA-registered personal trainer and weight-training and group-fitness instructor. She runs Fitness For Mortals.

Just when you reach the height of fitness, often you have setbacks. After working up to some ridiculous mileage on my bike this year and feeling like my aerobic engine was pretty much infallible, I am knocked back a few notches. Injury can be frustrating. It can make a person throw up their hands in frustration and stop exercising altogether when they can no longer do their preferred activity. The irony is, with my Achilles injury, the only thing I’m allowed to do is ride my bike. Well, that’s not totally true. I can swim and water-run and walk on flat ground, but what I really had on my list this fall was some lovely trail running, or even some hiking. It’s not that I don’t love my bike. I’m thankful I can still ride under the pain threshold. But, I’m a little pouty when I see all the running events this fall and I can’t do them. The point was driven home at a recent fitness conference when I could not participate in any workshops other than spinning because there was too much jumping around. It hurt my Achilles just to watch. So, I spent a lot of

Sloan fourth Roger Sloan of Merritt tied for fourth at the Great Waterway Classic, a Canadian Professional Golf Tour event that wrapped up in Gananoque, Ont., on Sunday, Sept. 9. Sloan finished at -13, five shots back of tournament winner Eugene Wong of North Vancouver. The Merritt golfer finished 10th on the

TOURNAMENT CAPITAL SPORTS tour’s order of merit. He played in eight events and won $22,261.25. Matt Hill of Sarnia, Ont., was first on the order of merit with just under $50,000 in earnings. Sloan led the tour in birdies this season with 140 in 32 rounds.

Road warriors Kamloops runners Rick Jenkner, Misty Palm and Bruce Butcher won their respective divisions at the final event of the Canadian Tire Road Race Series on Sunday, Sept. 9, in Kelowna. The 18-kilometre race was completed by 98 runners. Jenkner won the male 55- to 59-year old category with a time of 1:21:45, Palm won the female 35- to 39-year-old division with a time of 1:34:49 and Butcher finished in 2:12:57 to win the male 75- to 79-yearold race. Tournament Capital pavement pounders Melvin Doherty (1:36:09), Alan Stephenson (1:39:55), Linda Woodbury (2:08:31) and Kathryne Flannery (2:31:22) also finished the race. Trevor Haaheim was the overall winner, crossing the finish line in 1:05:49, while Cindy Rhodes was the top female,

finishing with a time of 1:18:34. Both Haaheim and Rhodes are from Kelowna.

Peak racers The North Face Dirty Feet Mountain Run was held at Sun Peaks Resort on Saturday, Sept. 8. Winning the men’s 16-kilometre race in 1:11:12 was Calum Neff of Cochrane, Alta., while Kelsey Robson of Vancouver won the women’s 16k with a time of 1:27:00. Jason Ladyman of Kamloops won the

men’s 5k in 21:36 and Chantel Jeffrey of Blind Bay won the women’s 5k in 24:36. The first man and women to reach the top of the 16k track were named king and queen of the race. Yvonne Timewell of Kamloops was named queen and Neff was crowned king.

Colin Gilbert and Megan Dalke were named this week to the Prospects West team, an elite squad for 13and 14-year old swimmers. Dalke said there were about 45 or 50 swimmers from Okanagan and Interior cities at age-group nationals in Calgary.

The Kamloops Blazers are running to raise money for the fight against cancer at the Terry Fox Run on Sunday, Sept. 16. Log on to blazerhockey.com to pledge. The team would like to raise $1,000. The run gets underway at 10 a.m. at the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park.

If the WolfPack can start attracting young River City talent — and elite swimmers from surrounding regions — it might not take long for varsity-level success to arrive in the Tournament Capital. “That snowball is at the top of the mountain and it’s started rolling and getting bigger and bigger,” Dalke said.

Pack stacked By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The voice of James Earl Jones and the TRU WolfPack women’s soccer team are similar in depth — baritone deep, then turn the bass up. “I’ve told them from the beginning, ‘You have to practise hard or you won’t play,’” WolfPack head coach Tom McManus said. “Because of our depth alone we are better than last year.” If the Pack are better this season than last — they’re pretty darn good. TRU posted five wins, one loss and five ties in regular-season play before winning the Pacific Western Athletic Association playoffs and finishing fourth at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) championship. Players, most of them friends, will be in direct competition each week for a place

on the pitch when points are on the line. McManus said there is a danger of competition breeding contempt, but animosity does not seem to be a problem with his current charges. “The girls so far are getting along great, even though they’re out there fighting for jobs,” he said. Laura Smylie and Sarah Gomes, both from Prince George, have been playing soccer with each other since they were about 12. The Duchess Park secondary graduates are friends, but they are also among the players pitted against each other in the struggle for playing time. “Our team is super close, so it’s always going against friends,” Smylie said. “You kind of just have to put your friendship aside. “Nothing gets carried off the field.” XSee TRU A37

Vikes tarnish Golds TRU perfect after opening weekend XFrom A35

The Valleyview Vikings used three quarterbacks and two last-minute interceptions to earn a 13-7 victory over the host Salmon Arm Golds on Saturday, Sept, 8. Valleyview scored on its first two drives to open up a 13-0 lead before starting quarterback Lliam Wishart, who rushed for more than 100 yards, and

his backup Morgan Motokado were both lost to lower-body injuries. Kaden Degen played under centre for the second half and turned in a gutsy performance, leading a makeshift backfield on several drives to preserve the lead. Salmon Arm was held scoreless until midway through the

fourth quarter, when Eric Borthistle plunged in from a yard out. The Golds had two possessions in the waning moments, but were intercepted by Mason Harding on both occasions, ending any hope of a go-ahead score. Up next for the Vikes is a date with hometown Rutland on Friday, Sept. 14, at the Apple Bowl.

Kamloops This Week 371-4949

The WolfPack opened the 2012 campaign with a pair of wins at Hillside Stadium on the weekend. TRU beat Douglas College 4-0 on Saturday, Sept. 8, and Kwantlen Polytechnic 4-1 on Sunday, Sept. 9. The CCAA’s weekly poll has the Pack ranked fourth in the nation. Bronwyn Crawford, Courtney Daly, Marlie Rittinger, Blair MacKay, Chloe McAuley, Kelsey Martin (2) and Alanna Bekkering scored for

the defending PWAA champions in support of goalkeeper Emily Edmundson. Rittinger, a WolfPack rookie from Ashcroft, is going to make earning game time tough on TRU’s veteran strikers. “Marlie Rittinger in my estimation is one of the best players in the Interior,”

McManus said. “She has experience and she can lead the team even as a rookie.” But, who does she unseat? In addition to the weekend’s goal scorers, Amanda Barrett, Taylor Miller, Katie Sparrow and Jaydene Radu know how to find the old onion bag, and Daly, a rookie, was brought in to do the same. “It’s going to be extremely tough to choose,” McManus said, noting it’s a good problem to have. Next up for TRU are matches with the Quest Kermodes in Squamish

on Saturday, Sept. 15, and Langara College in Vancouver on Sunday, Sept. 16. Last season’s accomplishments, McManus said, are in the rearview mirror, and he asked his team — in typical bench-boss fashion — to take things one game at a time. “Congratulations, but that is history,” he said. “If we come in with big heads, everyone is going to kick our backsides. “We have to prove every time out what we can do.” — with files from TRU

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES

archery By Sarah MacMillan

Kamloops will host the 2013 BC Seniors Games from Aug. 20 to Aug. 24, 2013. The city is expecting about 3,500 athletes, ages 55 and up, to attend the Games, which will feature more than 20 events, ranging from cribbage to ice hockey. KTW begins today a biweekly feature page, with each page focusing on one of the Games’ events.

SPECIAL TO KTW

In the past, it was a means of survival but, today, archery has become a popular recreational sport, one that Tim Kenning, BC Senior Games Zone 8 archery co-ordinator, fell in love with a quarter-century ago. “Twenty-five years ago, I went hunting on a farm in South Africa and the owner of the farm got me to try his bow,” Kenning said. “I shot it and it bit me. I went back to civilization and bought a bow.” Today, Kenning participates in local 3D archery competitions while also sharing his love of the sport with others through the archery shop he owns in Chase.

Three years ago, Kenning set up archery practice in Chase secondary. Since then, the number of people interested has grown. Though enjoyable, the sport is mentally demanding. “Archery is 90 per cent mental and 10 per cent mental,” Kenning quipped. Within the Games, there are six equipment categories using three different types of bows — compound, recurve and long. “It’s much of a modern thing” Kenning said of the compound bow, an energy-efficient stiff-limbed bow that uses cables and pulleys to bend the limb. The recurve bow is similar to what its name describes.

“The limbs of the recurve curve back and the ends curve back” Kenning said. The longbow is roughly the same height as the person who uses it. “The longbow is like what Robin Hood used,” Kenning said. With six equipment categories and a half-dozen age brackets, a maximum of 24 men and 24 women are able to compete. The competition will award gold, silver and bronze medals. For more information regarding archery, contact Tim Kenning by phone at 250-679-2304 or by email timsarchery@cablelan.net. Information regarding the B.C. Seniors Games can be found online at at bcseniorsgames.org.

The other St. Andrew’s celebrates a half-century

When St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church officially opened its North Kamloops doors, the Rolling Stones had just performed their first live show at a London rock club. Nelson Mandela sat in a South African jail cell, having been arrested weeks earlier, a new superhero — Spider-Man — had recently debuted in the pages of Marvel’s Amazing Fantasy No. 15 and the Cuban missile crisis was just taking shape. On Sept. 23, 1962, local Lutherans joined

church dignitaries at the new building on Renfrew Avenue for a special service. Nearly 50 years to the day later, St. Andrew’s Lutheran Church members have another date circled on their calendars. This weekend, the church is celebrating a half-century with two special events — a banquet on Saturday and a service on Sunday. Dennis Kujat, president of the church council, has been attending St. Andrew’s Lutheran since moving to Kamloops in 1975. “This neighbourhood, North Kamloops, was well-established here,”

Kujat told KTW, taking a break from painting the trim around the church’s front door in anticipation of the weekend events. “There was a drive-in theatre across the street, where the mall is now, and we could see the green hills to the south of us [in Sahali]. “There was nothing there, just about.” Kujat said the church congregation is excited about the 50th birthday party — just as they were for the 20th, 25th, 30th and 40th. “Everybody’s been pitching in, so it’s really good,” he said. “It’s almost like the old Prairie homecomings

that they have.” Kujat said Saturday’s banquet, at the North Shore Community Centre, 730 Cottonwood Ave., is already sold out — and organizers are expecting upwards of 150 people for Sunday’s service and the Lutheran potluck to follow. “We’ve got three former pastors coming back and we’ve invited all the past members that moved away,” Kujat said. “We have people coming from Arizona, Saskatchewan and all over B.C.”

WCT will Harvest laughs as season opens By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a line early in Harvest where the dad, telling the audience why he rents out the

family farm, notes that “the boy” would never be interested in it. Ken Cameron knows that line to be true. Not only did he write it but he’s the boy in question — as well

as the playwright of Harvest, based on a true story about the place where he grew up. Becamse, truth be told, Cameron never was interested in being a farmer, he said from

his Calgary office. He would play board games as a child and then try to invent his own. He would read

Mordechai Richler for fuelling that early creative bent when the famed Canadian novelist spoke at Cameron’s high school.

comic books and try to write his own. He would read novels as a student and then try to write stories. Cameron blames

Richler, Fraser inspired Audience gets in on the joke farmboy to write plays By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Seeing a university friend cast in the premier of the Brad Fraser play Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love made Cameron realize he could be a writer. Harvest, which kicks of Western Canada Theatre’s 2012-2013 season, tells the story of mom and dad who rent out the farm but keep the farmhouse to live in. The young man who buys the land looks acceptable but, in due course, the couple discover the land that once produced fruits and vegetables has been turned into a grow-op. “Yes, that really happened,” Cameron said, noting that, for the most part, the play is “rooted in assorted truths.” For example, there really was a mass murder of drug dealers just 20 minutes from his

farm and there was a convicted biker-drug dealer living just five minutes north of the farm. While the setting for the play is officially Ontario, where Cameron grew up in just between London and Sarnia, directions with the script allow theatre companies producing it to change the location. His only proviso is the locations must be real and must conform to the same distances as the Ontario locations. “This way, the audience feels like it’s their play,” Cameron said. Harvest premieres today (Sept. 13) and continues to Sept. 29 at Pavilion Theatre, 1025 Lorne St. Tickets are at the Kamloops Live box office at the theatre, 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

quite obvious what’s going on,” she said of the dozen characters she and actor Brian Linds will portray during the 90-minute play. And, once she knows “the audience is on board, it gives me a freedom to play the parts, knowing that they are in on the joke. “We can all have some fun with it.” The first time Bowen played Charlotte was in January, at the

TOYOTA

Chemanius Festival Theatre, her acting home. Bowen said the play is sweet and funny and she loves the idea of “these two people playing all the roles, telling the story. “Although it feels vulnerable sometimes up there, just the two of us.” This isn’t the first time Bowen’s worked with Western Canada Theatre; she designed

the costumes for The Price in 1984 and The Miracle Worker in 2010 and acted in The Foreigner in 1986 and in Midnight Madness in 1990. Bowen attributes her attraction to acting and costume design a bit to the fact she was adopted and found herself “socially awkward so playing characters was easier.” Brian Linds, who plays Bowen’s husband,

Alan, has been more involved with WCT in the past in The Man Who Shot Chance Delaney, Roger Maris On Stage, Witness For The Prosecution, You’ll Get Used To It, Heat Wave, A Christmas Carol, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, The Hostage, Crimes of the Heart, Beauty and the Beast and Timestep. He did sound design for No Exit and The Miracle Worker.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Embrace literacy at home for best results Every day, we send our kids off to school hoping they will learn something — anything — and grow into knowledgeable, successful adults. But, while we deal with the daily details of that thing called life, we sometimes forget to encourage learning at home. Parents are a child’s first teacher. Even after they have started school, it’s important to ensure family learning continues at home every day. Kids look up to their parents and mimic many of their daily routines. Spending just 15 minutes a day with them can go a long way to help children develop a love of learning and improve their literacy skills. “Learning together as a family is vital to a child’s future education,” says Margaret Eaton, president of ABC Life Literacy Canada. “Doing family literacy activities not only helps develop children’s reading, writing and math skills, it also provides an opportunity for parents to learn something new.” Unfortunately, approximately nine-million adult Canadians suffer from low literacy and hundreds of thousands of these people have children. Several of these children end up falling behind in school because they are not given the same opportunity as their peers to read at home and engage in early learning activities. Research shows children raised in literate households are likely to enter Grade 1 with several thousand hours of one-to-one pre-reading

experience behind them, so it’s important to ensure learning takes place in the home and starts at an early age. It’s understandable that parents lead busy lives and may not have time to read a bedtime story to their children. Add to that parents who have low reading confidence and children almost never enjoy a bedtime story. Luckily, there are so many learning opportunities that happen in our day-to-day lives — fun, easy activities that are part of our daily routines and don’t feel like learning. September is Life Literacy Month, a month to celebrate literacy and lifelong learning.

In honour of the month, ABC Life Literacy Canada offers 10 fun and easy ways to make literacy part of your family’s daily life: 1) When making your grocery list, have your child write out the items you need to buy. 2) At the store, ask your child to count out the money to make the purchase. 3) Make it a habit to always read a story together at bedtime. 4) When cooking dinner, involve your children in measuring the ingredients. This helps them understand fractions and measurements. 5) Driving is the perfect opportunity to practise literacy. Read signs, billboards

and licence plates together and show your children the proper way to read a map. 6) While on the Internet, make time to research something new that your family is interested in. Researching skills are important and help with reading and comprehension. 7) In the car, sing along to songs on the radio. Singing encourages learning patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms, and is strongly connected to language skills. 8) When playing a board game, read the instructions aloud to each other or count how many spaces to travel around the board. 9) Involve your kids when you pay bills. This will teach them strong financial skills early on in life. 10) Children follow by example, so ensure learning is part of your daily life, too. For more information on literacy in Canada, go online to abclifeliteracy.ca.

BACK TO SCHOOL

KEEP THEM SAFE THIS SCHOOL YEAR As we near the end of the second week of the school year, here are some suggestions to ensure your child remains safe from September through June.

Elementary students: • Find a safe route to and from school and practise the route with your children. • Discuss traffic safety issues, such as crossing the street and safely boarding the school bus. • Identify safe places along the route, such as a friend’s house or a store your children can go to if they encounter trouble. • Discuss how to safely interact with strangers.

Intermediate/middle school students: • Help your children pack their backpacks and ensure they are no more than 10 to 20 per cent of the child’s bodyweight. • Make sure children always use both shoulder straps. Slinging a backpack over one shoulder can strain muscles and may increase curvature of the spine. • Talk to them about appropriate behaviour at school and what to do if they encounter an instance of bullying behaviour. • Discuss their route to school and note any changes in safe places as friends move to or from

the neighbourhood. • Ensure they always wear a helmet when riding a bicycle or scooter. • Help your kids understand how to safely surf the Internet and how

to protect their privacy.

Secondary students: • Encourage your teenagers to talk to you about issues that are important to them,

including peer pressure, alcohol, drugs and healthy sexual decisionmaking. • Give your teenagers a sense of confidence. This is the best defence

Sabrina

against peer pressure. • Talk about being a safe driver as well as a safe passenger. Let them know it’s OK to say no to getting into a car with someone they feel is unsafe.

• Insist that teenagers wear a helmet when cycling and appropriate protective gear when engaging in other sports or recreational activities such as skateboarding.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Le français Stay safe on those wheels au CSF, c’est bien plus when cycling to class

qu’une langue !

As students settle back into their routine, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) encourages parents to refresh on road safety tips with their kids and to consider incorporating cycling as a way to get to and from school. “Cycling is an active and economical way to get kids to and from school,” said Jeff Walker, the CAA’s vice-president of public affairs. “We encourage parents to talk to their children about proper bike safety, to demonstrate proper habits and to regularly check their cycling equipment.”

Some helpful tips for cyclists: • Ride on the right hand side of the road in single file. • When crossing the road at a crosswalk, remember to dismount your bike and walk it across. • Ride with your head up and be aware of cars, pedestrians, other cyclists and road hazards. • Be alert and don’t ride with ear phones in. • Be familiar with hand signals and always be sure to use them. • Know and obey road signs and, remember, we all have to share the road. • Make sure your bike is a proper fit. • Helmets do have expiration dates. It is important to check the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) sticker on the back for the expiry date. • Mandatory helmet legislation exists in B.C. • Have a bell or horn on your bike. • Regularly check the tires for air. • When at school lock the bike securely in a designated area.

CUISINE

Next year, maybe more than one plant in yard XFrom B17

When, in July, the sun finally came out and dried things off, then burned intensely for weeks on end, there was nothing to stop the plumping effect of such a healthy environment. Our orphan was a sun-sucker, thriving in her habitat. “Look! Lookit!” I said, now well into August, squinting into the heat haze, in which our girl had spent the day basking. “Is it time?” A moment later, a loaf of bread and a cutting board was on the kitchen counter, along with soft balls of mozzarella and freshly clipped basil leaves. Then, without so much as a moment’s hesitation, Chefhusband strode outside, did what needed doing and returned with a perfectly plump, ripe, red tomato in each hand. “I think she’ll give us at least four more,” he said. “After that, we’ll have to go to the Farmers’ Market.” Now that it’s September, our little tomato plant has long since given up her goods. Several green tomatoes remain but, in the shortening days, there’s little chance they’ll begin to blush. With farm tomatoes in full season, though — and until we’ve had our fill of every last sandwich, salsa, soup, sauce and salad — our cutting boards will continue to run red with juice. Meanwhile, we’re making plans for next year. I intend to see how two plants thrive on readings of Susan Musgrave’s Tomatoes in the Windowsill After Rain.

And then, of course, when they’re plump with sun and

words, I will nod to Chefhusband, who will lead the plants to

slaughter. Darcie Hossack is a

School’s started — what’s for lunch?

I

HAVE HEARD PEOPLE SAY THEY CONSIDER SEPTEMBER THE TRUE START OF A NEW YEAR. This is likely the case for students and parents of school-age kids. Along with all of the back-to-school excitement comes the task of packing lunches. Nutritious school lunches not only help form lifelong healthy eating habits, but balanced nutrition can help your child concentrate, retain knowledge and be more motivated to learn. Here are some lunch-box tips to help you transition back into the swing of the school routine. First, check your school’s allergy guidelines to see if there are any foods you should avoid sending in your child’s lunch. Often, schools restrict peanuts and sometimes other nuts and seeds. Save yourself time by keeping lunches simple and easy. Plan ahead and go to the grocery store prepared with a shopping list. The more healthy choices you have in the cupboards, the easier it is to make fast, nutritious lunches. Include foods from each of the four food groups: Fruit and vegetables, grains, milk and

SIMONE JENNINGS Healthy HELPINGS alternatives and meat and alternatives. Involve kids as much as possible when planning, preparing and packing lunches. Children are more likely to eat foods when they are involved in choosing and preparing them. Finally, mix it up! Variety keeps lunches interesting. Test out some of these quick and healthy lunch ideas: • Save time by cooking extra the night before and pack leftovers like cold chicken drumsticks, pizza, pasta, or a quesadilla. • You can also allow kids to create their own combos. In a container with multiple compartments, put whole-grain crackers or pita triangles, cheese chunks or slices, slices of leftover cooked meat, sliced cucumber, cherry tomatoes, pickles or any of their favourite cracker toppings. • Are your kids getting tired of sandwiches? Put their favourite filling into a small

whole-grain bagel or English muffin. • You can also make sandwiches more interesting by cutting them into different shapes. Little triangles or squares are easier for small hands to manage. Use a large cookie cutter to create a fun shape (keep in mind this may create some waste). Slice pita bread into small triangles and serve with hummus for dipping. • Try tortilla roll-ups: Whole-grain tortillas with fillings like tuna, egg salad, cheese and cucumber. Roll them up and slice them into two-inch pieces. • If lunches are still coming home uneaten, try packing some of

their favourite breakfast foods like whole-grain muffins, pancakes or waffles with a container of yogurt or cottage cheese and fruit. • Also, remember fruits and veggies make good snacks. Try carrot, cucumber or red-pepper sticks with a healthy dip or fresh fruit like bananas, strawberries, blueberries, grapes or cubed melon with yogurt for dipping. If you are a working parent, don’t forget to pack your own healthy lunch at the same time as you make your children’s. Have a happy New (school) Year!

LOCAL VIEWS We process ICBC glass claims

on military personnel and veterans, as well as young people. What is refreshingly good to see is this strategy integrates with general health care — a step that needs to be taken in Canada. People often fail to seek help because suicidal thoughts and depression — or mental illness in general — is too often seen as shameful rather than another health condition. Another report from the U.S. has identified younger adolescent girls are less likely to receive treatment for depression than older adolescent females.

Two-thirds of older adolescent girls (15 to 17) with serious depression received treatment compared with only one-third of younger girls (12 to 14). Of no surprise, it was reported this week exposure to graphic images showing violence has negative effects on mental health and on one’s general health. People who watch a great deal of graphic images on television show marked increases in diagnosis of mental illness and physical condition two to three years later. The growing economic crisis in Europe is causing an

epidemic of depression and suicide. Understandably, continuous stress, relationship breakdown and increased alcohol abuse would be predictable under these circumstances. It is not a large leap to expect an increase in suicides and mental illnesses — and that is what is being noted now. One of the keys to combatting the devastation left behind after suicide is to recognize the signs that someone is considering taking their own life: Suicidal thoughts, substance abuse, seeing no purpose in life, anxiety, feeling trapped, hopelessness or helplessness, withdrawal, anger, recklessness (for example in driving, sports, or unprotected sex) and mood changes (an unexplainable mood change from very low to very high can be as dangerous a sign as from very high to very low). If you or a family member is showing a difficulty coping and is showing any of these warning signs, insist they be assessed by their physician. First of all, burdens are reduced when shared, doctors see these kinds of symptoms often and are not judgemental about them and help may be easier than you first believe. The key is act as soon as possible — delays are not helpful.

The 32nd annual Terry Fox Run will take place on Sunday, Sept. 16 in Riverside Park. Registration is at 9 a.m., with the run starting at 10 a.m. Distances are 3.5 kilometres, seven kilometres and 10.5 kilometres. The Terry Fox Run is suitable for bikes, wheelchairs, strollers and inline skates. However, dogs are not permitted.

THE TERRY FOX LEGACY July 28, 1958: Terrance Stanley Fox is born in Winnipeg. March 9, 1977: Terry discovers he has a malignant tumour in his right leg. The leg is amputated 15 centimetres (six inches) above the knee. The night before his amputation, he reads about an amputee runner and dreams of running.

April 12, 1980: In St John’s, Terry dips his artificial leg into the Atlantic Ocean and begins his odyssey. He runs an average of 42 kilometres (26 miles) a day through six provinces. Sept. 1, 1980: After 143 days and 5,373 kilometres (3,339 miles), Terry stops running outside of Thunder Bay as his primary cancer has spread to his lungs. Before returning to B.C. for treatment, Terry says, “I’m gonna do my very best. I’ll fight. I promise I won’t give up.” Sept. 2, 1980: Isadore Sharp, chairman and CEO of Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, telegrams the Fox family with a commitment to organize a fundraising run that will be held every year in Terry’s name. He writes: “You started it. We will not rest until your dream to find a cure for cancer is realized.”

Fox on the run again in Kamloops More than 30 years after the run named after him began, Terry Fox’s legacy is still holding strong. The 32nd annual Terry Fox Run takes place in Kamloops on Sunday, Sept. 16, and organizer April Buder is expecting plenty of young children and families in the 400-strong crowd that typically comes out for the event. “That keeps the whole legacy going,” she said. “Because we’re going to rely on those younger people to keep it going down the road — unless, of course, we do find that cure for cancer.” Though Fox, who lost a leg to cancer, embarked on his crosscountry run to raise money for cancer research well before the run’s youngest participants were born, Buder said most of the kids she meets are aware of his story. “The schools do a phenomenal job at the elementary level of teaching about the legacy of Terry Fox and what he’s done for cancer research,” she said. “It was amazing.

Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope started on April 12, 1980, in St. John’s and ended just outside of Thunder Bay, Ont., on Sept. 1, 1980. He ran 5,373 kilometres in 143 days.

“We were set up at the mall on the weekend and even the young ones, they already know.” In Kamloops, the run raises between $15,000 and $18,000 for the Terry Fox Foundation, which funds cure-oriented cancer research nationally and internationally. This year, Buder said, she’s hoping to see participants push that number higher. “A lot of what we receive is personal donations at the site. “We don’t get a lot of people taking the pledge forms and collecting donations beforehand,” she said. “So, if we could just get one extra donation from everyone, our numbers would grow tremendously.”

The run’s starting point is also on the move this year, to the Rotary Bandshell in Riverside Park, though most of the route will remain the same as in previous years. Participants have the option of running a 3.5-, 7- or 10.5-kilometre route. While the run is open to cyclists, inline skaters and wheelchair users, dogs are not allowed on the route. Registration begins at 9 a.m. on the morning of the event, with the run itself beginning at 10 a.m. A by-donation pancake breakfast precedes the run and Buder said face painting, balloons and musical entertainment will also be on offer.

TRAVEL

Goa — India’s splashy playground By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

“Goa is famous for three things: Powder beaches, all-night parties and susegadho, meaning taking life e-ea-s-y!” So says Salvador (Sonny) Carvalho. He pauses and adds, “Also Feni, Sorpatel and Vindaloo.” Sonny and his wife, Deena, are old friends and I’m lolling on the veranda of the family’s sprawling hacienda, sipping pre-lunch drinks. Sonny is right on all counts. Feni is a potent country liquor made from coconut-palm sap or from fermented cashew juice and Sorpatel and Vindaloo are Goan specialty dishes served on festive occasions. All three grace our lunch table this afternoon but, after one sip of the fiery “caju” (cashew) Feni, I opt for a Shandy (Indian Kingfisher beer and lemonade) instead. After the main course, the family’s chef beams as he presents a traditional dessert — Bebinca, a sevenlayer cake that takes several hours to prepare. The Carvalho family’s lifestyle is typical of Goa’s affluent middle class. Their Roman Catholic faith and culture derive from their Portuguese heritage and, like many of their 40-plus generation, they are gregarious and funloving. During the next few days, I’m invited to lively shindigs where everyone grooves, the music ramps up several decibels and booze flows freely. As the evening progresses, guitarists strum pop songs and guests break into vigorous renditions of Goan folksongs, accompanied by rhythmic clapping. Parties rarely shut down before 3 a.m. But, if Goan joie de vivre hasn’t changed, much else has. On my first visit

This carved wooden alterpiece dominated the interior of St. Cajetan’s Church in Goa, India. Margaret Deffholts photo

25 years ago, Goa was a little tropical paradise — miles of sundrenched beaches, palm groves, paddy fields and small residential communities. Country roads wound past whitewashed homes with colonial Portuguese style balconies, where folks would sit out in the cool of an evening and chat to neighbours passing by or invite them in for a nip of Feni. Neighbourhoods like these are rapidly vanishing in North Goa, giving way to concrete apartments, multistoried hotels and timeshare enclaves. Panjim, the capital, is a-buzz with shops, commercial buildings, cafes and bars. South Goa, for the most part, still retains its bucolic tranquility. The open-air market at Mapusa, is a mustsee and, when I arrive mid-morning, everything is at full throttle: Bright colours, seething crowds and the sun beating down from a brazen sky. The smell of overripe fruit lies on the

dust-laden air and the roar of traffic and incessant beeping of horns are like hammer blows. Urchins offer me gaudy trinkets, bony cows chew cud dream-

fruit vendors. Later in the afternoon, I stroll from my B&B to nearby Baga beach. Families frolic at the edge of the rolling waves, fleshy bikiniclad blonde Russian women, smirked at by teenage youths, broil under the blazing sun. Bollywood film music playing at top decibel level wafts across the sands. And, as the evening closes in, parasailers glide across a purple and crimson sunset sky. No visit to Goa would be complete without seeing Old Goa. This is where the Portuguese held sway from 1505 until India forcibly took over in 1961. A dock at the water’s edge, where a succession of Viceroys would have arrived to great fanfare, opens to a wide road leading under a triumphal archway —

now mossy and worn by the passage of five centuries. Today, the road is empty except for myself and a couple of school kids sauntering homewards. Colonial mansions once occupied by court grandees have crumbled into ruin and stand ghost-like amid tangled creepers. What has endured, however, are Goa’s splendid Roman Catholic churches, modelled after the style of European cathedrals. The most renowned is the Bom Jesu Basilica, with its dazzling gilt altarpiece and majestic statues. Completed in 1605, its main claim to fame is the “uncorrupted” body of St. Francis Xavier, a deeply venerated Jesuit missionary who died five centuries ago. Remarkably, despite Goa’s intensely humid

heat, the body (never embalmed or mummified) hasn’t decomposed over the centuries. A lesser-known gem is the 17thcentury Church of St. Cajetan, with its white Corinthian-pillared facade and a dome fashioned after that of St. Peter’s in Rome. The three altars, the pulpit and paintings are exquisite and, unlike the crowded aisles of the Bom Jesu Basilica, this is a haven of serenity. I bid Goa a reluctant farewell. It has been a memorable visit and I’ll be back someday to party again with newly found friends — and maybe even down a peg or two of Feni.

FAITH

Religion always prevails — even in face of communism

I

READ WITH INTEREST READERS’ RESPONSES TO VARIED EVENTS. It seems there are many frustrated, disappointed and upset people out there. Lashing criticism and angry reactions give short-term relief. Many feel there’s nobody who listens or cares. It is interesting how an increasing number of people react to religion, especially when religious individuals or groups do something wrong, dishonest, stupid KAREL SAMEK or use political shrewdness for You Gotta Have selfish gain. FAITH One such issue is brewing in the Czech Republic, where I was born. It has to do with government’s restitution of church properties confiscated by the communist government. There are churches that built things from their own resources and by sacrifice of their members. First, the communist government seized the businesses and properties of merchants,

manufacturers — even homeowners. Churches were next on its agenda. When communism fell in 1989, people who could legally prove ownership of nationalized confiscated properties could claim them back. The same principle should be applied to churches, right? This is where the problem comes in. There is an organization whose historical record indicates a good number of its properties were acquired by rather questionable means. A huge part of the pie is portioned out to this one entity. This includes large financial amounts plus large real-estate properties. All of this in times when the country is in deep economic problems with deficit budgets. The brunt of economy’s downturn is paid for by excessive taxation of common people, pensioners — people already struggling just to make it. People today are well-informed and sense politicians and the church are in cahoots. History teaches us church and government make for rather bad bedfellows. So, the angry and frustrated voices cry, “Get rid of all this religion and most of our problems will be solved — ours will be a better world!”

I lived 21 years in a system that promised to solve these problems and create an ideal society. Atheism believed it, practised it and enforced it. Religion was the opium of masses and had to be discarded. This experiment lasted 41 years and ran aground. North Korea promotes the same philosophy and I wonder how many critics who put all religion into one heap to sweep it from the table would like to migrate to that paradise. Historians tell us the French Revolution, with its rise of atheism, dethroned God and the Bible. In its place it enthroned “the goddess of reason” and the results were terrible. The French Revolution was a frustrated reaction and revolt against abuses of a powerful, corrupt church and clergy and selfindulgent nobility and ruling classes. They were in cahoots and forgot their God-given place to serve, protect, care and rule with justice. The angry France did not distinguish between what was true in Christian faith and what was counterfeit — and France and Europe were thrown into a terrible bloodbath and trouble. Jesus and the apostles had much to say

about corruption of genuine Christian faith. Just as the declension and corruption of the Hebrew faith had preceded the first coming of Jesus, so it will be prior to His second coming that many believe cannot be too far. For example Christ’s words in Matthew 24:4.5.11.12: “Be careful not to let anyone deceive you. Many will come using my name. They will say, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many people. Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. And because there will be more and more lawlessness, most people’s love will grow cold.” Are you rejecting the true because of those who misrepresent Christ and twist His teachings? Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be. Instead of jettisoning God and the Bible overboard, take it and study it prayerfully for yourself. Let your life be the best argument to disappointed sceptics. Karel Samek is pastor of Seventh-Day Adventist churches in Logan Lake and Merritt. KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page. Columns should be between 600 and 800 words in length and include a headshot of the author, along with a short bio on the writer. Submissions can be sent via email to editor@kamloopsthisweek.com
