Accused says devil forced killing of dad By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
The way Josh Steel saw it, he had been presented a choice by “the devil.” Either the 19-year-old Kamloops man kill his dad — and, in the process, be given control of the world — or do nothing and watch as he and his entire family die slow, painful deaths. Such was the scenario presented on Wednesday, Nov. 7, during the B.C. Supreme Court murder trial of the 19-year-old Steel, who admits to beating his father, 63-year-old Phil Steel, to death with a fireplace tool on Sept. 12, 2011. Court was told Steel had been experiencing psychotic hallucinations for a period of months before the murder. He was put on medication after a visit to Royal Inland Hospital in February, but stopped taking his pills after a doctor in the Philippines told him they were not necessary. That was March 2011. After a period of improvement, Steel’s mental state began to deteriorate and he was experiencing halluciDave Eagles/KTW

nations and having conversations with the devil, even believing his television was sending him messages. Steel’s mother was concerned when, in late August, her son began spending hours on end in his bed, staring at the ceiling. He would not join her for bike rides or walks and refused to leave the house for work. Steel also spoke about receiving messages from the TV show Friends. In particular, he said a character on the show told him to turn a light switch on and off 11 times or risk seeing his family “get hurt.” On Sept. 10, 2011, two days before Steel killed his father, police were called to the family’s home for a reported family disturbance. Steel had apparently been fighting with his parents and eventually left the house and began smashing car windows in the neighbourhood. When police arrived, he tried to run away, but was arrested a short time later. Court heard Mounties were concerned about Steel’s mental health. Defence lawyer Jordan Watt said police made notes about “unusual verbal sounds” Steel was making while in custody.

Mayor: U.S. election turnout impressive Meanwhile, Liberal MLA calls for legalization of pot By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Perhaps one of the solutions to improving voter turnout in B.C. is to figure out why it works in the U.S. Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar noted Americans treat their right to vote in a different way than do many Canadians. “It is one of the most convoluted and difficult systems to track,” Milobar said, “yet their voter turnout is two or three times ours. “I go to vote and I can do it in 15 minutes. People in Florida stood in line for five, six hours, to vote.” Milobar said he believes the many options presented for voting in the U.S. may also encourage people to exercise the right, pointing out states control what goes on ballots and how the votes will be cast, ranging from the familiar ‘X’ on a paper ballot to smartphones, by mail or online, depending on where they live.
BARACK OBAMA: Secured second term in the White House.
MITT ROMNEY: Former Massachusetts governor fell short.
“They take it a lot more seriously,” the mayor said. “We should ask ourselves, why do they as a citizenry take it so seriously?” Kamloops-South Thompson Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger agreed with Milobar’s observation there is something about the American culture that drives people to vote. “People there [in the U.S.] have been absolutely committed to their vision of how their democracy will unfold,” Krueger said. “Their [voting] system was designed by people with great fore-
thought on how it should be done.” Another aspect of the U.S. election that should get some attention in B.C. is the decision in Colorado and the state of Washington to begin the process to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana production and sale. “I hope so,” Krueger said when asked if the proximity to a state whose populace has endorsed legalization should be studied by his government. “We have to stop playing into the hands of the Hells Angels and the other gangs and criminals who control it now.” Krueger said marijua-
na should be viewed by government as is alcohol and gambling, vices for many, entertainment for others, but a reality that needs to be addressed. “It is a huge agricultural industry,” Krueger said, “and it makes no sense to tie up our courts, police and jails with it.” In the adult population, people get to choose and a lot of people enjoy marijuana, Krueger said, noting the justice system often treats those charged with marijuana-related offences differently than they do those with alcohol-related charges, “giving them longer prison sentences. “It should be licensed and regulated and taxed as a revenue source,” he said. “There should be off-ramps for people to get out of it if they want to [due to addiction].” “When they say it’s a war on drugs, it’s not. It’s a war with organized crime,” Krueger said. “And, it’s time to stop giving them this gravy train.”

‘We’re not the charity, we’re not the bank.’ — Kamloops Coun.Tina Lange
Cadets gets cold shoulder from council By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com

Operation Red Nose revved up By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Had a few too many eggnogs at the annual Christmas party? Kamloops’ dedicated squad of volunteer drivers is once again preparing to help you get home. The Operation Red Nose program is back for another year and will run from 9 p.m. to 3 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights from Nov. 30 to Dec. 29, as well as on New Year’s Eve. The program aims to reduce drinking and driving over the holiday season, while raising money for athlete development in the region. Motorists can call the Operation Red Nose headquarters at 250-372-5110 and request a team of volunteers to drive them and their vehicles home.
Program co-ordinator Katie Klassen said she’s now accepting applications for volunteers, who will provide upwards of 1,000 rides in Kamloops this year — one of the highest totals in B.C. Of the 12 communities that participated in the program last year, Klassen said only Surrey and Langley, which run a joint program, had more rides. Donations received during the campaign will go to PacificSport Interior B.C., which provides travel and training support to athletes and coaches in the region. Last year’s Operation Red Nose raised $20,000 for the organization. Typically, about 200 people volunteer as drivers, navigators and escort drivers (those who follow volunteers as they drive vehicles to their homes) during the campaign, with many committing to multiple nights of driving.
“They drive countless kilometres, pick up some interesting people and come in at 3 a.m. with a smile on their face,” said Klassen. All volunteers receive training before their shift and must pass a background check. The program will continue to accept volunteers right up to New Year’s Eve. At the program’s official launch at Desert Gardens Community Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 7, Kamloops RCMP Const. George Buttuls praised the program for raising awareness about the hazards of drinking and driving. “The RCMP’s perspective on drinking and driving is that it’s an ongoing fight and it can’t be done alone,” he said. “There’s been a lot of lives affected by drinking and driving and Operation Red Nose goes a long way to giving us a hand.”
Kamloops cadet corps will have to look elsewhere as they attempt to replace a burnt-out furnace at their Briar Avenue hall, after city council rejected its request for a loan. The Kamloops Cadet Society needs to raise $8,000 to replace the furnace, which director Linda Ingalls said is beyond repair. The three cadet corps who use the hall are fundraising for a replacement but, in a letter to city council, Ingalls said the society was also looking to the city for help, given the rapid approach of winter. “If we cannot heat this building, then we will not be able to let the cadets use the building,” she wrote. “If they cannot use the building, then they will not have a place to use for the next training year.” The building is used nearly every day, she said, by 150 cadets between the ages of nine and 18. The society was seeking a $4,000 loan from the city, so it could qualify for a Community Infrastructure Improvement Fund grant, which requires groups to have half the funding for projects already committed. However, several councillors worried the loan, which would have come out of council’s contingency fund, would set a worrisome precedent. Coun. Nancy Bepple said handing out a grant, even a repayable one, for building maintenance could lead to other local organizations letting repairs slide, then coming to council for help. “This isn’t what we’re here for,” added Coun. Tina Lange. “We’re not the charity, we’re not the bank. It’s a no-interest loan that will be paid back, but there’s other places where they should be looking for that money.” Mayor Peter Milobar said the Kamloops Cadet Society is experiencing the kind of extenuating circumstances the contingency fund is meant to cover. “I don’t think you can plan for a furnace to catch on fire,” he said. “I understand the angst around it. I would be fully not supporting this had it been a longterm chronic problem that had been plaguing them. But, we’re heading into winter, it’s a furnace, and I don’t think they have the luxury of time to start channelling this into the service agreement committee.” Council decided not to grant the cadets a loan, with councillors Ken Christian, Pat Wallace, Nelly Dever, Bepple and Lange voting against the request.

IHA targets Vinsulla ‘sewage pit’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
The Interior Health Authority is taking legal action in an attempt to deal with a potentially stinky issue on a property north of Kamloops. According to documents filed last week at the Kamloops Law Courts, the IHA is looking for a judge’s help in forcing a Vinsulla woman to comply with a healthprotection order put in place in January after an inspection turned up an inadequate sewage system. An affidavit filed by Clare Audet, an environmental-health officer with the IHA, states Vinsulla resident Gloria Leone Pearson is putting herself and her neighbours at risk by having sewage from her home dumped into an open pit on her property. In the affidavit, Audet said she was first alerted to a potential issue on Pearson’s property — located about 25 kilometres north of Kamloops — in December 2011, when a neighbour raised concerns about the sewage system.
Audet said she visited Pearson’s property for an inspection and found an open pit, located not far from a home, in the final stages of construction. “I inspected the property and identified a pipe flowing into the pit that appeared to be for the discharge of sewage,” the affidavit states. “On further inspection, I found that the pipe that ran into the pit originated in the dwelling unit. “I made it clear to the respondent [Pearson] that the pit was not an authorized sewerage system and that it could not be used for the disposal of sewage from the dwelling unit.” According to her affidavit, Audet visited Pearson’s property again on Jan. 4, 2012. She said Pearson and her husband were by that time living in the home and disposing of their sewage in the pit. Audet said she returned to the property on Jan. 18 and issued a health-protection order requiring Pearson to fix the sewage situation. Additional visits
in February, June and September showed no change in the system, the affidavit states. “The sewerage system on the property has not been constructed and sewage continues to pool on the ground surface, contaminating the property and creating a health hazard for the inhabitants of the area,” Audet said in the affidavit. “I have received complaints from residents within the unincorporated community of Vinsulla regarding
concerns of the illegal discharge of sewage by the respondent.” Audet said the pit has the potential to make people sick, given its proximity to groundwater and homes. “The pit that receives the respondent’s sewage is close to a steep-sloping bank, above a floodplain,” the affidavit states. “I am concerned that if water were to rise in the floodplain, the sewage in the pit could break through, contaminating the
flood water and shallow wells downstream.” The IHA is seeking an injunction to have Pearson “cease the discharge of sewage” into the pit and an order from a judge requiring her to install a proper sewage system. Pearson has yet to file a response to the IHA’s claim and attempts by KTW to contact her were unsuccessful. None of the allegations have been proven in court.

Joseph murder trial continues Chestnut Avenue, where a 62-year-old man had been struck by a 2002 Toyota Corolla. Investigators believe the victim and his 24-year-old son were crossing the street when the driver of the Corolla, a 31-year-old man, pulled out to make a right-hand turn onto Fortune. The driver, who attended to the victim until emergency crews arrived, told police he did not expect the pedestrians to enter the crosswalk. The 24-year-old was able to jump out of the way of the vehicle. The 62-year-old man’s injuries are not considered to be lifethreatening.

Woman hurt in train collision Police are working to figure out what happened on an uncontrolled railway crossing in Rayleigh on Tuesday, Nov. 6, when a van was struck by a train engine. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said emergency crews were called to a private crossing in the area just before 6 p.m. A van being driven by a 54-year-old woman had been hit by a CN locomotive after the van came to a stop on the tracks. The woman was
taken to hospital with serious injuries, including broken bones. The train sustained minor damage. Learned said investigators aren’t sure why the van was stopped on the tracks. “We’re not sure if there was maybe a preexisting medical condition,” he said. The investigation is ongoing.

A Kamloops man accused of killing his common-law wife last month is slated to appear in Kamloops provincial court on Friday, Nov. 9. Gerald Raymond Peters, 48, was charged with second-degree murder after 48-yearold Deborah Anne Joseph’s body was found at a house on East Shuswap Road on Oct. 20. Initial reports indicated she had been stabbed, but that has not been confirmed by police. Peters has a history of domestic violence, having been sentenced to an 18-month probation term just weeks before Joseph’s death. An autopsy was performed on Joseph’s body on Monday, Oct. 22.
Inland Hospital is expected to arrive in Kamloops later this week. Learned said the man’s family is “obviously distressed” and is in the process of travelling to Kamloops. The 28-year-old international student at Thompson Rivers University has been in critical condition at RIH since early Saturday, Nov. 3, when he was struck with a pool cue during an apparent fight with a friend inside a downtown Kamloops bar. Learned said the pool cue went through the man’s eye and into his brain, causing severe trauma. The 25-year-old suspect, also an international student from Saudi Arabia, has since been released on a $10,000 surety and ordered to hand over his passport.

Rather than count homeless, we should confront apathy
IRTUALLY ANY CODE of ethics of any journalistic organization will include something that says reporters do not comment on the subjects they cover. For example, the ethics guidelines of the Canadian Association of Journalists, for which I am chair, includes this: “We lose our credibility as fair observers if we write opinion pieces about subjects we also cover as reporters.” That means, for example, court reporters don’t write columns on the legal system and city hall reporters don’t file columns on municipal government. I point this out because this column is on a news article I wrote this week due to the absence of our news reporter and the need for the story to be covered. It’s the scourge of a newsroom with a small staff; sometimes it just happens. Ordinarily, I do not cover homelessness. I did that once, a decade ago, in a series of articles for KTW, but have left it to other reporters since then. Writing the story on the recent homeless count in Kamloops was frustrating. As I told Homeless Action Plan (HAP) co-ordinator Tangie Genshorek at the start of the interview, the annual count is now irrelevant. She knew that — we’ve had this conversation many times — but, as a reporter, it was appropriate to remind her of my bias. Hence this column. It is time to end the annual street-
DALE BASS Street
LEVEL and shelter-wandering event. As Genshorek said, when it was first done, it was as much to start a conversation on homelessness as it was to find out how many people live in that state in our city. That was seven years ago and, since then, every year except 2011 has shown there are about 100 homeless people the volunteers can find. It’s never a true number, but a bestguess snapshot only. Research, experience and other criteria esablished by agencies dictate that, to find the hidden homeless, you essentially triple the number of those counted. Mayor Peter Milobar has suggested, as has Genshorek, that to truly obtain a provincial view of the numbers of largely transient folks, homeless counts throughout B.C. should be done on the same day. They both said they plan to lobby for that change. They both said they also think the counts perhaps don’t need to be done annually. We know there are homeless people in Kamloops — lots of them.
That baseline has been established. Rather then spending money and manpower reinventing the wheel, as my mother would say, let’s acknowledge there is a baseline, an understanding of the size of the issue. And, let’s also accept that, despite everything that’s been done in the past years — more transitional housing, more shelter space, new programs, more affordable housing — it hasn’t been enough. Let’s skip the annual report to the community HAP must do. If you ever go to one, you’ll know it’s just telling the people who already know and care what they already know and care about. The series of articles in 2002 generated an overwhelming outpouring of donations, to the point the back area of our building was starting to look like a warehouse of clothes, sleeping bags and blankets. A recent poll in KTW asked if Kamloopsians have or plan to do anything to help the homeless. More than three-quarters who responded said no. That is stunning — and appalling. It is shameful. And, that fact is what HAP and the other social agencies should be addressing, rather than doing counts. The solution? I wish I knew. But it’s not spending hours and who knows how much money planning to do a count that really doesn’t ever change much and isn’t remotely accurate. firstname.lastname@example.org kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com
Very rarely can three simple words be so powerful and mean so much. Lest we forget. On Sunday, Nov. 11, Canadians will stop for a moment to remember the men and women who sacrificed their lives so we can enjoy the freedoms of today. In sombre Remembrance Day ceremonies across the country — including in Riverside Park — our veterans will parade and we will watch. The ranks of those who served in the Second World War and Korean War are thinning as time passes. Their stories of bravery and sacrifice are becoming fewer, too. The passing of time aids in forgetting. We must not — and, as can be seen on page B1 of today’s paper, we have soldiers of today to remind us of personal sacrifice for the common good. With every passing year, our responsibility grows — to observe the nationwide two minutes of silence that begins at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. It’s a way of showing that, after all these years, we remember. Two minutes. It isn’t much time. In fact, it’s nothing at all. Two minutes on one day could and should be extended to a daily remembrance and gratitude for what we have and for who we are because of sacrifice. But, the solidarity we show in those 120 seconds confirms to all Canadians that we remember. We will not forget. And, after that silence has passed, we pin our poppies, until then worn over our chest, on wreaths laid by the cenotaphs to honour those who have fallen. At the same time — while we are still lucky enough to have the chance — we turn and honour those who survived. We meet them at the Legions and shake their hands. We show them we haven’t forgotten. They’ve done their duty. Now, we must do ours.

I happen to know from experience there are licensed and regulated trappers who are legally retained to thin out coyote populations. “At our ranch, there are lots of coyotes and we rarely have problems with them. “But, last year, the deer population was wiped out because of the winter weather in our area and, this spring, coyotes started coming into the fields and pens to attack our cattle.” — posted by Melanie Alacantara
WHAT’S YOUR TAKE? Will you attend the Sunday, Nov. 11, Remembrance Day ceremony in Riverside Park?
On Remembrance Day and always — the Legion cares Editor: Once again. Remembrance Day will soon be upon us. It is a time for Canadians of all ages to remember the more than 100,000 fellow citizens who fought, bled and died protecting our freedoms, along with the countless others who have served our country. However, Remembrance Day should not only be reserved to remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. It should also be a practical remembrance of the living — the disabled veterans, RCMP members, widows, widowers, orphans and family members of those who served who are in need of a helping hand. Members of the Royal Canadian Legion are, as one of their core responsibilities, the Guardians of Remembrance. The Legion-organized Poppy Campaign and Remembrance Day ceremonies help alleviate suffering and address the needs of veterans and their families who may not have the financial

wherewithal for basic necessities. The Legion assists with purchasing medical equipment, awarding bursaries for needy students, providing support services such as meals-on-wheels and dropin centres and helping with some basic residential repairs, to name but a few. So much of the Legion’s work in our communities goes unnoticed. Every day, this organization of more than 330,000 people makes significant contributions, not only to enhance the lives of veterans, but also for seniors, cadets, scouts, guides and serving members of the Canadian Forces and RCMP and their families. The Legion remains fiercely proud to be Canada’s largest veterans’ services organization. Our advocacy work on behalf of all who have served in the Canadian Forces and RCMP ensures they receive life-long support and recognition for their service to this country. Thanks to their desire to give back, the Legion was created and continues to
this day to support our communities in countless ways. The Royal Canadian Legion’s Poppy Campaign (the Kamloops office is at 623 Victoria St.) provides everyone with the opportunity for practical remembrance and it is hoped this year — with the recent conflicts in Afghanistan and Libya, as with our aging Second World War and Korean War veterans — more Canadians will wear the poppy than ever before. There’s more to the Legion than you might think. We care! Find out today how you can get involved by visiting your local Legion branch — because you care, because you can. The Kamloops branch of the Royal Canadian Legion is located at 425 Lansdowne St. in the downtown core. Lest We Forget. Gordon Moore Dominion president Royal Canadian Legion

Tourism Kamloops likes this Destination By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A new Crown corporation that will market B.C. to international tourists is getting positive reviews from Tourism Kamloops. Premier Christy Clark and Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell announced this week the creation of Destination BC, an industry-led, taxpayersupported organization dedicated to advertising the province abroad. Lee Morris, CEO of Tourism Kamloops, said the new organization is in some ways a return to the pre-Olympics status quo. Three years ago, the province disbanded the industry-led Tourism BC and took over marketing efforts itself. Morris said Tourism Kamloops
has been advocating for a return to a Tourism BC-style organization for some time, noting it’s “key” that those in the tourism industry drive marketing efforts for the province. Morris said she’s also happy to see a multi-year funding commitment for the Crown corporation and reporting standards that will make the organization more accountable. Destination BC will take over marketing efforts on April 1, 2013. For the first year, it will receive the funding the government has used for its own tourism promotion efforts. After that, it will receive a legislated percentage of sales-tax revenue. Bell said the new Crown corporation will have an increased focus on marketing to Asia, espe-
cially China and India. Morris said when it comes to international tourists, Kamloops is generally part of a larger travel itinerary that stretches across the province. “We’re a piece of the picture, which is a visitor coming to Western Canada and they want to see Vancouver, Victoria, then they’re off to the Interior and the Rockies,” she said, adding Kamloops will benefit from an increased push to international visitors. Tourism Sun Peaks is also applauding the move, with president Christopher Nicolson praising the province for listening to and responding to the tourism industry. — with files from Black Press

LOCAL NEWS NOTICE TO ELECTORS OF AN ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS CAMPBELL CREEK WATER CONNECTION This is the ﬁrst of two notices to advise electors in the City of Kamloops of the intention to adopt the "Campbell Creek Water Connection Loan Authorization By-law No. 14-1-168". The purpose of the by-law is to borrow an amount not to exceed $3,214,000 to ﬁnance the cost for the water connection that will be repaid over a period not to exceed 15 years. It is estimated that the borrowing will result in a water utility rate increase for the average residential property of $8 per year. A copy of By-law No. 14-1-168 and a summary of the proposal are available from the Legislative Services Division at City Hall during each business day of the week between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

Water world ﬁnally coming to Campbell Creek? An alternativeapproval process is underway as the City of Kamloops seeks to borrow more than $3.2 million to connect the Campbell Creek area to the Kamloops water-treatment plant. The project got received initial approval from city council in October, but can’t be fully adopted without permission from electors. Under the alterna-
CITY HALL tive-approval process, those who object to the borrowing can send in a signed elector response form by Dec. 14. Forms can be downloaded online at kamloops.ca. For the approval to fail, 6,732 people would need to send in written objections.
Cavers wants meter payment option Coun. Donovan Cavers is hoping to make it easier for Kamloops residents to cover the cost of having their water meters buried in their yards. Some homeowners have chosen to have their meters installed in pits, rather than in their homes, due to concerns about wireless technology or health issues — a choice that comes with
a $1,000 price tag. Cavers said he has received complaints that the price is a hardship for some residents. “A lot of people have tight budgets right now,” he said. While Cavers doesn’t want the fee reduced, he put forth a notice of motion at council’s Tuesday, Nov. 6, meeting that would allow residents to spread the cost of a pit installation over four monthly payments of $250.

The City of Kamloops proposes to borrow the money and connect the Campbell Creek area to the Kamloops Centre for Water Quality unless, by 4:30 pm on December 14, 2012, at least 10% of the electors in the whole of the City of Kamloops sign an elector response form opposing the implementation of the proposal unless the City of Kamloops holds a vote. The number of elector responses required to prevent the City of Kamloops from proceeding unless a vote is held is estimated to be 6,732. A report respecting the basis on which this determination was made is available upon request from the Legislative Services Division, City Hall. Alternative Approval Elector Response Forms Elector responses are required to be submitted to the City of Kamloops on forms that can be obtained during regular business hours from the Legislative Services Division at City Hall; the form may also be downloaded from the main page of the City of Kamloops website at www.kamloops.ca. The only elector response forms that will be accepted by the City of Kamloops are the ones provided by the City of Kamloops, or an accurate copy of the form. Only electors of the City of Kamloops are eligible to sign the elector response forms. There are two types of electors – resident electors and non-resident property electors. Resident elector – a person who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years of age or older, has resided in BC for the previous six months and has resided in the City of Kamloops for the previous 30 days prior to signing an elector response form.

City to close two recycling depots STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Kamloops will lose two of its recycling depots in March of 2013 and look at adding even more curbside disposal options, as fewer residents choose to drive their cardboard and glass to drop-off points around the city. City council has agreed to close recycling depots on Mission Flats Road and at the Valleyview Arena. Depots at Ord and Bunker roads will remain in service. David Duckworth, director of corporate services and community safety, said the amount of recycling coming to the depots has dropped by about 75 per cent since the city introduced curbside recycling and a similar program for multi-family housing. The depots used to receive 2,500 tonnes of recyclables a year. They are now getting about 600 tonnes — and staff are expecting that number to decline even further in the coming years. The shutdown should decrease the cost of collecting recyclables at the depots to $220 per tonne from $443 per tonne, Duckworth said. The curbside program, by comparison, costs the city $228 per tonne collected. Of the two depots that will remain open, Duckworth said the Ord Road site is the city’s
most-used recycling location, while the Bunker Road depot best serves businesses in Sahali and Aberdeen. However, Coun. Donovan Cavers worried about the effect the shutdown would have on business owners in Valleyview, who will now have to drive farther to dispose of recyclable waste. “All the businesses are trying to do the right thing, but they’re only going to go so far out of their way,” he said. After the motion to close the depots passed, Cavers proposed the city set up a pilot project, offering curbside recycling for businesses, to be included in the 2013 budget. Mayor Peter Milobar isn’t sure there is a demand from businesses for recycling services from the city. “With commercial haulers in place, it’s pretty tough to mandate they have to use our service,” he said. “If there was a demand for this, then either we or someone in the private sector would be doing this.” Coun. Ken Christian also opposed the idea, saying the city should give the business community time to react first. Coun. Tina Lange, however, said when she was operating smaller businesses in the city’s downtown, she would have happily paid for recycling pickup.

“It’s a lot of garbage that’s going into our landfills that doesn’t need to and it’s not like they’d be giving it away for free. “They’d be paying for it like everyone else,” she said.

City to keep close eye on grants By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Kamloops city council is calling for more oversight of the groups it funds through service agreements as it begins discussion of the 2013 municipal budget. That could include organizations like Venture Kamloops and the Kamloops Art Gallery, or other groups that receive large chunks of cash for operating expenses. In a budget workshop on Tuesday, Nov. 6, Coun. Nelly Dever said she wants to see those type of groups encouraged to build budgets from scratch, rather than rolling over numbers from previous years without examining whether those funds are still required. The suggestion comes after city CAO David Trawin told council city staff have changed some of their own policies for constructing the annual budget during the past two years and are now build-
ing the city’s capital-projects budget for Kamloops from zero. “What we’ve seen is better prioritization of projects. We also don’t bite off more than we can chew,” said Trawin of the budget building so far. It’s a process Dever would like to see other organizations getting city cash following. “We should review the amount of money we give them every year,” she said. “Not, ‘We gave you $50,000 last year, we’re going to give you $50,000 this year.’” While several other councillors offered some support for the idea, Mayor Peter Milobar urged council to make sure they were serious about a review, which he said could cause panic for some of the agencies getting grants from the city. “I just worry that if we’re not really serious about making those cuts, it’s a good conversation to have, but it’s going
to cause a whole bunch of unrest for a whole bunch of groups and organizations,” he said. Rather than launch a full-scale review, Coun. Ken Christian suggested the city randomly select a couple of organizations receiving larger grants from the city and take a look at their “fiscal accountability.” While agreements between the city and the organizations it funds are already overseen by Kamloops’ service-agreement committee, which, Christian said, does its own rigorous vetting, he thinks the extra review would provide better transparency for taxpayers. “We need to be able to show the public there is some degree of oversight and scrutiny,” he said. Coun. Marg Spina also backed the suggestion. “If we just pick two at random and go forward with that, that’s fair,” she said.

City hall looks to team up to save money As Kamloops city staff look to cut costs with bulk discounts, city councillors are eyeing partnerships with Kelowna and other nearby communities to get even better deals on products ranging from road salt to toilet paper. At a budget workshop on Tuesday, Nov.
6, city CAO David Trawin presented a number of cost-saving measures being rolled into the 2013 budget, from prioritizing energy-saving projects to reviewing open management positions within the city to determine if they need to be filled.
Trawin estimates changes to how the city buys products could save just under $2 million a year, once they are fully implemented. In 2012, for instance, the city managed to reduce its road salt budget by $20,000 by buying it through a

ings brought out an unusually large number of people, in part due to a stepped-up public-consultation process by the city, Milobar is not sure if the 2013 budget is going to attract similar-sized crowds. He said 2012 may have been an anomaly, since the budget process so closely followed a municipal election. “I guess we’ll see if there’s still that interest.”

Pot votes pique interest in B.C. By Jeff Nagel BLACK PRESS firstname.lastname@example.org
B.C. pot reform advocates are celebrating Washington state’s historic vote this week to legalize and tax marijuana, saying it adds momentum to their campaign for change here. Initiative 502 passed with 55 per cent of voters in favour, making Washington the first U.S. state to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults, along with Colorado, where a similar vote also passed. “Tell everyone I’m elated. It’s the biggest day of our movement ever,” Marc Emery, B.C.’s imprisoned Prince of Pot, tweeted from his U.S. jail cell. His wife, Jodie Emery, celebrated the win in Seattle — where her husband was indicted for selling pot seeds — with Washington campaigners, including travel guru Rick Steves and the U.S. prosecutor-turnedreformer who put Marc behind bars. It’s still unclear if the U.S. federal government will allow the state to carry out the plan to license marijuana production and tax its sale in authorized stores. But, observers here say the implications are huge for both the existing B.C. bud industry and the intensifying debate on drug-policy
Washington state residents voted in favour of legalizing and taxing small amounts of marijuana. Marijuana-reform advocates in B.C. hope the results in Washington and Colorado (where voters also opted to legalize marijuana) will help the cause in Canada.
reform. “American voters are now ahead of Canadian governments on the cannabis file,” said former B.C. attorney general Geoff Plant, a high-profile reformer with the Stop the Violence coalition. “It helps advance the argument for legalization here in B.C..” Rob Gordon, director of SFU’s school of criminology, said it could spur a more serious consideration of legalization both in B.C. and in other U.S. states if “the sky doesn’t fall” in Washington and the state starts reaping a windfall of weed revenue. “The dominoes could start toppling,” he said. Washington estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a planned 25 per cent tax on the sale of licensed, regulated marijuana through authorized stores. “Whether or not their federal government is going to tolerate this remains to be seen,” Gordon said.
If pot possession and sales is allowed in Washington state, Gordon expects a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry as growers relocate their operations south of the border to avoid the need to smuggle. “The operations in B.C. would shrink considerably. They’d be focused entirely on patchy local consumption,” he said. “It’s a huge step forward,” said B.C. marijuana activist Dana Larsen, who heads the Sensible BC campaign to force a provincial referendum on pot decriminalization using the Recall and Initiative Act. As with the campaign to defeat the HST, volunteers will have 90 days in the fall of 2014 to get thousands of signatures from every riding of the province to trigger a referendum. If it passes, the legislature would vote on Larsen’s proposed Sensible Policing Act, which would order an
end to police enforcement of simple cannabis possession. Premier Christy Clark and B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix both say marijuana reform is up to the federal government and the prime minister has said the Conservatives won’t loosen Canada’s drug laws. But, Larsen argues Ottawa could, if pressured enough, exempt B.C. from federal narcotics laws to enable a regulated and taxed marijuana experiment here. He said legal pot in Washington helps end the argument the U.S. may “retaliate or freak out” if B.C. reforms its drug laws.
Plant said he prefers full marijuana legalization, rather than the halfstep of decriminalization, which doesn’t allow regulation and taxation. “Full legalization removes the economic incentive for the illegal manufacture and distribution,” Plant said. “People can get it safer from a retail outlet at a price that is reasonable. That should eliminate substantially all of the economic underpinnings for the organized crime control of the market. “I’m not saying we’re going to put an end to organized crime,” Plant said. “I’m saying let’s put an end to that part of organized crime, which is about gunfire in broad daylight in the streets of our cities for control of the cannabis market. “That would be progress, I think.” The Washington state vote comes two months after B.C. civic leaders voted to urge the province to decriminalize marijuana and explore methods to regulate and tax it.

COVER PAGE STORY
Doctor says pot use likely added to disorder Steel was checked out by a mental-health counsellor in jail, but eventually released on a promise to appear in court. In the brief period between his release from custody and his father’s murder, Steel spent most of his time at his aunt’s North Shore house. On Sept. 12, 2011, after sitting in silence for four hours inside his aunt’s home, Steel stood up at 4 p.m. and left. His mother phoned her husband to say Steel was likely coming home. Phil Steel was on the phone with his wife when his son walked up to the family house. That’s when Josh Steel attacked his father.
“He used a fireplace tool, sometimes referred to as an andiron, to deliver multiple blows to his father’s head,” said Crown prosecutor Joel Gold, reading from an agreed statement of facts. Phil Steel called 911. Gold said the operator on the other end could hear he was in distress. By the time police arrived, Josh Steel was running away. Officers caught up with him and placed him under arrest. “When he was caught by the police, Joshua told them that he killed his dad,” Gold said. Inside the house, first responders found Phil Steel lying on the floor of a basement living room, his head resting on a blood-soaked couch.

nia, but said it could prove to be schizoaffective disorder. He said Steel’s symptoms were likely intensified by marijuana use. Crown and defence are in agreement about Steel being found not criminally responsible by way of a mental disorder, but the final decision will rest with B.C. Supreme Court Justice Hope Hyslop. The trial is expected to continue today (Nov. 8).
“He had a large concave impression and partly open wound in the back of his head,” Gold said. Phil Steel was pronounced dead by paramedics at 5 p.m. Court heard testimony from psychiatrist Sam Iskander, who examined Josh Steel at a Lower Mainland forensic hospital after his arrest. Iskander said he has provisionally diagnosed Steel with schizophre-

E HAD A LARGE RESPONSE TO OUR COLUMN ON BULLYING A FEW WEEKS AGO IN THE WAKE OF AMANDA TODD’S SUICIDE. Amanda would have turned 16 this month. One reader was upset with us for appearing to blame victims and we are grateful for her comments because it is essential in the understanding, coping, preventing and stopping of bullying to understand the dynamics that are involved with bullies. We would never advocate that blaming the victim but, like any other situation in which one is the victim of a crime — make no mistake, bullying is a crime — there is a risk a person will be revictimized over and over again. This is true whether we are talking about house burglaries, thefts from cars, sexual assault — or bullying. Sometimes victims of crime are in the wrong place at the wrong time; sometimes they are carefully chosen by the cowards and opportunists who commit these wrongs. Instead of blame, we choose to teach our youths at the Canadian Mental Health Association the differences between blame and responsibility. Blame looks backward in time, finds fault and is critical of the person who was hurt.
Responsibility looks forward and tries to teach new approaches and behaviours to avoid re-victimization. Most victims of bullying report they are not a one-time target. Most are tormented again and again by the same bully — and sometimes re-targeted by other bullies. Bullies are cowards who pick on people who they believe are least likely to fight back. Adults who were bullied as children often say adults were unhelpful in stopping their torment. We hope this is changing as we learn more. Instead, these former victims said, their victimization ended when they stood up to their harassers through fighting back, turning the tables and humiliating the bully, or by enlisting the support of peers to undermine the bully’s necessary audience. This is the point: Each victim of a crime or bullying has to ask themselves: “What is it about me that makes me the target of this behaviour? What can I do differently?” That is accepting responsibility for the future rather than blame for the past.
We do not advocate victims literally fight back, as bullies pick younger, weaker and lessexperienced people to torment, with the hope they try to physically fight back, providing the bully the opportunity to humiliate them further. Adults can support a victim by encouraging them to report the bullying and take decisive steps. Adults can inform the bully they are aware of their behaviour and, if they continue to get enjoyment from hurting others, they will find their own environment becoming less friendly. Is this a threat? This is the natural outcome of a bully trying to use size and support to victimize a smaller or weaker person — be that in the schoolyard or the workplace. Next week, we will tackle the most insidious and pervasive type of bullying — cyberbullying. Until next time, remember to accept responsibility — and not blame — for the good and bad that happens to you. Put yourself in charge of what happens to you next and see how that improves your outlook, your fortunes — and your mental health!
Dr. Marita Schauch, BSc, ND Every month, millions of women struggle right before their period with premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and for many, it can last anywhere from a few days to the entire two weeks. That’s half a month of feeling unwell! Common PMS symptoms include: bloating, crabbiness, irritability, breast tenderness, cramping, headaches, mood swings, cravings, and breakouts. These symptoms can reﬂect hormonal imbalances, vitamin/mineral deﬁciencies and dietary/lifestyle choices. One of the ﬁrst steps in treating PMS may be to address liver function. If the liver is not processing excess estrogen properly it can accumulate in the body leading to an “estrogen dominant state” and symptoms of PMS! I recommend PMS Sense to patients in my practice. PMS Sense contains curcumin, chaste tree extract, vitamin B6, magnesium bisglycinate and essential fatty acids. These ingredients help support the liver and address the common symptoms. PMS Sense is an effective natural formula that helps to decrease and prevent unwanted PMS symptoms.

Obama and the second term Second-term president now has freedom to act boldy on climate change GWYNNE DYER World WATCH
T’S HARD TO know how much impact New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s comments about climate change after Hurricane Sandy had on the U.S. election. It’s easy to overestimate that sort of thing, but President Barack Obama’s victory in several states was so razorthin that Bloomberg’s last-minute intervention may have been decisive. What’s crystal clear is that Obama himself didn’t want to talk about it during the campaign. Bloomberg, responding to the devastation he saw in New York City, laid it on the line. “Our climate is changing. And, while the increase in extreme weather we have experienced in New York City and around the world may or may not have been the result of it, the risk that it may be . . . should be enough to compel all elected leaders to take immediate action.” The New York mayor, a former Republican, did not hesitate to assign praise and blame: “Over the past four years, President Barack Obama has taken major steps to reduce our carbon consumption, including setting higher fuel-efficiency standards for cars and trucks. Mitt Romney, too has a history of tackling climate change . . . He couldn’t have been more right. But, since then, he has reversed course.”
Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com
Bloomberg said this only five days before the election, in the immediate aftermath of a national calamity that may well have been climate-related. So, did Obama pick up the ball and run with it? Certainly not. Apart from a oneliner about how climate change “threatens the future of our children” in a single speech, he remained stubbornly silent. Rightly or wrongly, Obama and his team have been convinced for the past four years that talking about climate change is political suicide. Nor did he actually do all that much as higher fuel-efficiency standards for vehicles was his only major initiative. Romney, of course, said not a word about climate change as one cannot take this problem seriously and retain any credibility in today’s Republican Party. So, was all the instant speculation about how Hurricane Sandy might finally awaken Americans to the dangers of climate change just wishful thinking? Not necessarily. Obama faces a daunting array of problems as he begins his second term: Avoiding the “fiscal cliff”, restraining Israel from attacking Iran, tackling the huge budget deficit and getting U.S. troops out of Afghanistan. However, the biggest problem facing every country is climate change — and Obama knows it. Otherwise, he would never have appointed a man like John Holdren
to be his chief scientific adviser. Holdren, a former president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, is one of the leading proponents of action on climate change. He is also savvy enough politically to understand why Obama couldn’t do much about it during his first term and he didn’t flounce out in a rage when the president avoided that fight. Obama rarely starts fights he cannot win and it was clear from the day he took office in 2009 that he couldn’t get any climate-related legislation through Congress. That’s why his fuelefficiency initiative was his only first-term accomplishment on this front as that did not require legislation and was done as a regulatory initiative by the Environmental Protection Agency. To what extent has his re-election changed this equation? Second-term U.S. presidents, who no longer have to worry about re-election, often act more boldly than in their first term. The U.S. economy is clearly in recovery mode and Obama will (quite justly) get credit for that. That will give him more leeway to act on other issues and the environmental disasters of the past year may finally be pushing American public opinion towards a recognition that the threat of climate change is real. There is not yet any opinion-polling data on that, but it wouldn’t be surprising. This year has seen meltdown in the Arctic,
heat waves that killed more than 10 per cent of the main grain crops in the United States, big changes in the jet stream (which may be responsible for the prolonged high-pressure zone that steered Hurricane Sandy into New York) and the fury of the storm itself. It has long been argued that what is needed to penetrate the American public’s resistance to the bad news of climate change is a major climate-related disaster that hurts people in the United States. Even if Sandy may not have been a direct consequence of global warming, it fills that bill. It may get the donkey’s attention at last. There is no guarantee of that and each year the risk grows that the average global temperature will eventually rise by more than 2 C and topple into uncontrollable, runaway warming. Moreover, the Republicans still control the lower house of Congress. But, hope springs eternal — and, at last, there is some. The past two weeks have seen an unexpected and promising conjunction of events: A weather event that may shake the American public’s denial of climate change and the re-election of a president who gets it and who is now politically free to act on his convictions. As Businessweek (a magazine owned by Bloomberg) put it on last week’s cover: “It’s global warming, stupid.” Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries. gwynnedyer.com

Band’s guitars recovered
$ Three guitars reported stolen by a group of Montreal-area musicians while on tour in Kamloops have been found intact by the Kamloops RCMP. Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said a patrol officer found the three guitars near the North Shore policing office — at Fortune Drive and Tranquille Road — on the night of Saturday, Nov. 3, as part of a larger investigation being conducted. The guitars are original Godins, with one being a Fat Black Icon, another being an LG Signature and the

third a Red Line 3. The instruments were worth several thousand dollars and held a strong sentimental value to members of Endast as they were the original guitars used when the heavy-metal group was formed. The guitars were stolen after someone cut the locks off the band’s equipment trailer as it was parked at the Holiday Inn Express on Versatile Drive in Aberdeen while the group waited for mechanical repairs to be made to its van.

On November 6th, 2012 Mr. Giovanni Piccolo passed away peacefully with his children by his side in Vancouver at the age of 91 years. He is survived by his daughters Dialma Waite, Sandra (Stig) Lyren, and one son Rob (Maria) along with six beloved grandchildren Christopher (Tiffany), Cristina (Grayson), Stephanie, Stefan, Julianna and Katarina. He also leaves behind his sister Rosetta Bittante of Italy, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and close friends who will cherish his memory. Giovanni was predeceased by his loving wife and soul mate Virginia, his beloved daughter Esterina (Joseph) Valentinuzzi, his parents Vincenzo and Rosa Piccolo and brothers Danilo and Ido. Giovanni was born on August 25th, 1921 in Maser, Italy. He married the love of his life, his soul mate and best friend, Virginia, on January 8th, 1949. They worked side by side on the family farm, but wanting more opportunities for their children they decided to immigrate to Canada. In 1957 they arrived in Kamloops with their three young daughters to begin a new life. In 1966 their son Rob was born and he felt like a young proud dad again. Giovanni’s faith sustained him throughout his life, and saying the rosary was a daily routine.
In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still, In my heart you hold a place, No one can ever ﬁll. A million times I needed you, A million times I cried If love alone would have saved you, You would have never died. It broke my heart to lose you, But you did not go alone, A part of me went with you, The day God called you home. Your memory is my keepsake, With which I’ll never part, God has you in His keeping, I have you in my heart.
Your Loving Wife Forever Phyllis (Tish)
He was happiest when his children and grandchildren were gathered around him enjoying a wonderful home cooked Italian meal. Giovanni enjoyed gardening, canning, singing, watching hockey and cooking. He took pride in planting his tomato garden every year, and making incredible tomato sauce. He worked as a gardener for the parks department for the City of Kamloops for many years and was well respected by all for his dedication and hard work. His unwavering work ethic, strength and will power were passed along to his children. Although he was not a scholar, he understood the value of education. He always spoke of how incredibly proud he was of his eldest grandchildren for attending University and was excited to see what career paths his youngest grandchildren would choose. He always wanted the best for his family. Giovanni leaves behind a family who will always treasure him and will never forget him. Caro Papa resterai sempre nei nostri cuori e non serai mai dimenticato. The family wishes to extend their sincere thanks and gratitude to Dr. Leslie Sheldon for his care of dad. We also wish to extend our thanks to all the wonderful nurses, care givers and staff at Villa Carital for their care of our Nonno. Prayers will be recited on Sunday, November 11th at 7pm at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church. Father Peter Hoan Nguyen will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial at the church on Monday November 12th at 10am. Entombment will follow at Sage Valley Mausoleum. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations can be made to the Prostate Cancer Research Foundation of BC in Giovanni’s name.

DUNLOP, MARJORIE HELEN REAUGH
JOHN (JACK) WILLIAM
November 2,1926 - October 20, 2012 Mom passed away peacefully Saturday October 20 just short of her 86th birthday. She was the fourth of six children born to Archibald and LaVerne Reaugh. Her younger years were spent in Prince George until at fourteen, on a brave whim, she and a girlfriend lied about their age to join the army. They were excited to be shipped to Vernon then Vancouver. Working her way home she took a job in Kamloops and the majority of her life was spent here in Westsyde where she and Dad raised their seven children. She was a wonderful mother and friend and is greatly missed by all her family. She was predeceased by our Dad (E. Ray) Shorty, July 16,1991, her parents, brothers Bernard and Howard (Knick), and sister Doris. She is survived by her sister Lola, brother Ivor (Barbara), sister-in-law Beulah, and her children Judy, Gail, Donna, Barry, Bob (Denise), Sandra and Dan, as well as her special niece Shirley. Ten grandchildren, ﬁfteen great grandchildren, and six great-great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces and nephews and their families. Mom really was an exceptional woman. The ﬁrst four children were tended to without beneﬁt of indoor plumbing other than the kitchen sink. Many winter months were spent hanging clothes on the line to freeze and then bringing them in to hang on a drying rack. She always warmed our towels on the wood stove oven door for our baths in the galvanized tub. Mom didn't drive so she needed to be a person of all knowledge when we were ill. By the time the last three children were born we had bus service in Westsyde so she had more mobility. The last three were very ill as babies and Mom would take the bus into town and tend to them at the hospital each day, then go home and tend to the rest of the family. Mom never complained of any of the hardships or difﬁculties she endured, she seemed to just take life in stride. She was always cheerful, singing or whistling or yodelling as she worked, and often when she was doing laundry on the porch, her yodel could be heard echoing up the river. Many evening hours would be spent knitting, helping with homework, reading to us, or laughing as she taught us Scrabble. To our delight, Dad would often grab her and waltz her grandly around our tiny living room. We are all very proud of her and grateful for having had such a gracious, patient, and loving Mother. As we became less dependent Mom took up hunting with Dad and began horseback riding again. Once Mom ﬁnished raising her family she worked at Woodwards and Ponderosa. She enjoyed league bowling and her hilarious trips to Reno with her sisters-in-law. Mom spent the past several years contentedly in Pinegrove Care Centre where she received exceptional care. Our thanks to the wonderful staff! A graveside service will be held in the spring in Prince George where her ashes will be interred with her Mother and sister. We are truly blessed to have had this wonderful lady in our lives for as long as we did and she and Dad have left us with many fond and loving memories.

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

The powder and the glory
I worked my ass off for it, so it’s not something I feel lucky for, but I feel very fortunate to be in this position . . .
By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
ELEN SCHETTINI is shredding her way into the mainstream backcountry snowboarding scene. Her big break came in the fall of 2011, when YES. Snowboards — a company sponsoring Schettini— released a film featuring elitelevel backcountry boarders, including the 28-year-old Kamloops product who cut her teeth at Sun Peaks Resort. “They were making a movie and said they might bring me out a few times,” Schettini told KTW. “They said they might put me in and they might not.” Turns out she did make the film — and her life has been a whirlwind ever since. “I feel very blessed,” said the powder-seeking rider who grew up in Rayleigh. “I worked my ass off for it, so it’s not something I feel lucky for, but I feel very fortunate to be in this position.” The appearance showcased her fearless approach to riding and
the snowboarding world has taken notice. Schettini is on the cover of, and featured inside, the recently released 2013 women’s annual edition of Snowboard Canada. It’s on newsstands now. The former member of Kamloopsbased West Tech Snowboarding Club is also featured inside the November issue of Snowboard Magazine, a Colorado-based publication. “I’m definitely getting a lot more known now in the U.S., which is the market you need to be known in if you want to be successful
in the sport,” Schettini said. The marketable thrill-seeker is sponsored by YES., Adidas, Billabong and VIVO Headwear, to name a few — and, yes, her buddies do accept leftover swag. “I always give my friends free stuff,” Schettini said. “It’s like promoting me, too, because there are signature products.” Up until this year, Schettini, who moved to Whistler when she was 17, had been working at an Italian restaurant in the off-season and chasing powder when the white stuff arrived.
From the bunnyhills at Sun Peaks Resort to the backcountry of Whistler to photo shoots in Chile — Helen Schettini of Kamloops is moving steadily toward the top of her profession. Rube Goldberg

Living the dream X From A30
Last summer, however, she was able to ditch the restaurant gig in favour of travelling across the globe with sponsors and friends. “I haven’t had to work a normal day job in a little over a year now,” she said. “It’s been amazing to be able to do what I love for a job.” She augmented three trips to California this summer with a photo shoot in Chile and a three-week venture through Europe. Living her dream would not be possible without her upbringing in Kamloops and the time she spent at Sun Peaks, Schettini said. She remembers her roots and credits West Tech — and her brother, who introduced her to snowboarding when she was 14 — for much of her success. “That was a big part of it because it got me right into competing the first year,” Schettini said. “I got really serious right away. I almost didn’t even have that recreational level of snowboarding, which is a good thing, I think.” Backcountry snowboarding was not her first love. Schettini competed in a variety of disciplines — including boardercross and half-pipe — before she
found a home among the trees and featherlight flakes. “It got to a point where I wasn’t enjoying myself anymore and I was getting injured a lot,” she said. “And, just being in Whistler, the powder is everywhere and it’s so good. It was just a natural progression. “I stopped competing after a while, got a snowmobile and got into backcountry more.” The life span of a backcountry snowboarder tends to be longer than that of competitive rider. “It’s more about experience and knowledge,” Schettini said. “If you stay in shape and healthy, you can go to almost 35 or 40. On the contest scene, you’re usually on your last legs at 28 or 29.” Whistler is Schettini’s favourite mountain and the city itself will likely want to claim her as its own, but the Tournament Capital and Sun Peaks will have something to say about that. “There’s always going to be a place in my heart with Sun Peaks,” she said. “Every Christmas, I go home and I shred the mountain and it’s unbelievable there. It’s fun going back to see what it is and what it’s become.”

Wildcats move on The Kamloops Wildcats blanked the Kelowna Dragons 26-0 at Hillside Stadium in Southern Interior Football Conference (SIFC) peewee playoff action on Sunday, Nov. 4. Kamloops will meet either Vernon or Kelowna in a semifinal tilt this weekend. Solid play from offensive linemen Preston Jenkins, Bryce Welz, Mateo Viani, Brennan Ettinger and Jagger Reid paved the way for Ben Prokopetz to run for 211 yards and three touchdowns, with Mike MacDonald adding a one-yard TD scamper to complete the scoring. Quarterback Carsen Day passed for 43 yards. A kickoff recovery by Mathew Stanhope in the third quarter sparked the Wildcats’ offensive surge. Sean Smit led the defence with seven solo tackles with Nick Berry, Rorik Munson, Colby Griffiths, Dayton Tomlin and Denzel Marican contributing 14 more. Quarterback sacks

REMEMBRANCE DAY IN KAMLOOPS
Rocky Mountain Rangers Lt.-Col. Kevin Tyler (left) and Capt. Rod Dearing both served in Afghanistan, among other theatres around the world. There is, they concede, a difference in how the public responds to Afghan veterans as opposed to veterans of the Second World War or Korean War. “You don’t need that celebration,” Dearing said. “You just need people to be respectful.” Dave Eagles photos/KTW
IN UNIFORM By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
N THE DESK OF Capt. Rod Dearing in his second-floor office inside the McGill Road headquarters of the Rocky Mountain Rangers sits a baseball cap with two words embroidered on the front. “Afghan Veteran.” Dearing is proud of the hat. It was a gift for local soldiers who served in Afghanistan, given by the Kamloops branch of the Royal Canadian Legion. He often wears it while out and about in the community — a display of the service he didn’t think twice about providing his country in 2008 while serving in Afghanistan, or during his other overseas deployments in the 1990s in Cypress, Croatia and Kosovo. But, Dearing said, that baseball cap will sometimes bring about
weird looks from people. “I walk around with that hat on, like I’ll be in the mall or something, and people just don’t know what to make of it,” he told KTW. “It’s like, ‘I don’t understand, so I don’t want to deal with it.’ “I think it just doesn’t affect them personally, so they don’t know how to deal with it.” It’s a far cry from the ticker-tape parades for soldiers returning home from the Second World War. It’s not disdain, Dearing said, but it’s not adoration. It’s neutrality. “You don’t need that celebration,” he said. “You just need people to be respectful.” That communitywide outward showing of respect will be on display, if only for a day, at Remembrance Day celebrations on Sunday, Nov. 11.

special for all soldiers — even those still in the midst of their military careers. “What it means to me is I remember the guys I served with who got injured, maimed or killed,” he said. “I have a lot of friends that have died, so I think of them. “Like Erin Doyle. The guy was a hero.”
Doyle, a master-corporal with the Canadian Forces, was killed on Aug. 11, 2008, while defending a combat outpost in Afghanistan. Born and raised in Kamloops, Doyle was on his third tour of duty in Afghanistan when he died. His name was added to the Kamloops Cenotaph in May — the first addition to the local
monument in 65 years. Dearing knew Doyle personally and saw him weeks before his death. “People don’t understand what he did,” Dearing said. “He’s a real hero.” On Sunday, Dearing will be thinking about Doyle and the other “brothers” he’s seen killed in action. “I don’t have any brothers, but any brothers I do have are here [in the military],” he said. “You’re brothers — you’re friends forever. It doesn’t matter what goes on. “That’s the reason why I’m here in Kamloops today with my arms and legs — because of the loyalty of my men.” Lt.-Col. Kevin Tyler, the commanding officer of the Rocky Mountain Rangers, said Remembrance Day is emotional on a number of levels. “On a family level, I have an uncle who is alive who is a World War II veteran,” said
Tyler, whose 33 years of service have taken him from Australia to Bosnia to Yellowknife and a lot of places in between. “I’ve spent a couple of Remembrance Days where I’ve gone to Calgary and spent time with him. “There’s also the personal aspect of some friends I’ve served with who have been killed in action.” Tyler spent 13 months in Afghanistan in 2008 and 2009, leading an effort to build that country’s national police force. He said it’s tough to compare Canadians’ reactions to Afghanistan to what happened after the Second World War and the Korean War. “Afghanistan, being an insurgency, it’s not really as intense — as in the death rates or the casualty rates — as World War II or Korea,” he said. “And, after a while, people do become immune to what’s going on over there.”
The 2012 Remembrance Day ceremony in Kamloops will be held in Riverside Park on Sunday, Nov. 11, beginning at 10:30 a.m. The ceremony will be held at the Veterans Memorial Cairn and will include the first wreath being laid by Silver Cross Mother Kathy Mitchell. Mitchell’s son, Master-Cpl. Erin Doyle of Kamloops, was killed while serving in Afghanistan in August 2008. In May, a ceremony was held to add Doyle’s name to the Kamloops Cenotaph on Battle Street. Sunday’s ceremony will include mounting of the guard of honour; a service conducted by reverends Sandra and Tom Sugden; the singing of O Canada; the playing of the Last Post; two-minute silence at 11 a.m.; the playing of Lament; a fly-past by 410 Squadron of Cold Lake, Alta.; the playing of Reveille; and prayers. The Remembrance Day Parade will then leave Riverside Park, go west on Lorne Street, south on First Avenue and east on Victoria Street, where it will end in the 400-block. Veterans and parade participants will then retire to a variety of locations, including the Royal Canadian Legion at 425 Lansdowne St.

Tank sergeant, bombed in Bay of Biscay, put out fire in ship’s hold, full of aircraft bombs. Our untold hero survived.
Being with the construction branch of the Engineers, Glenn did not technically see combat in the Korean Conflict. By accident, though, one day he and a North Korean soldier encountered each other across a small creek. Both dived for cover and lay there, looking at each other across the water. The North Korean moved first and Glenn shot and killed him. He always said that looking into that man’s eyes and then having to kill him was the biggest regret of his life. He last told me that story in 2009, a year before he died, and it still brought him to tears all those years later.

THE CONTENDERS RETURN
Valdy (left) and longtime collaborator Gary Fjellgaard are bringing their annual The Contenders B.C. Interior tour to Sagebrush Theatre on Saturday, Nov. 10 — and the event is bittersweet for the pair. They have been singing every year to help support the George Ryga Centre, Valdy told KTW, but the board of directors has voted to sell the Summerland facility named for the playwright of, among other works, The Ecstasy of Rita Joe. “I don’t like it,” Valdy said. “We’ve spent 11 years supporting it and it was 11 good years for us. But, we’ll keep donating to the bursary” that supports writers. Valdy’s also touring to promote his new album, Read Between the Lines, released in April and designed to promote literacy. The show will feature the two artists alone and together, with “chestnuts people know, some new material and some old material,” Valdy said. Tickets for the concert, which starts at 8 p.m., are $23.50 and available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

Break an egg and save those yolks
AVING BROKEN THE EGGS, YOU MUST MAKE THE OMELETTE. Or the angel food cake. Or the dulce de leche flan. Or, so the saying goes. In my kitchen, I might, however, prefer to cry (pointlessly) as over spilt milk, then mop up and return to the store for more eggs. Or, I might declare my kitchen an egg-free zone. Or, I might leave the mess where it falls — until a clearer head
DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT comes home from work. However, in the hands of Winnipeg poet Sally Ito, a crate of broken eggs turned out to be opportunity knocking. That and a cushion of organic bubble wrap.
rtugese-is h ta
12 tart shells 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1 tbsp. all-purpose flour 1 1/4 cups whipping cream 4 large egg yolks Pinch salt 1/2 tsp. pure vanilla extract 2 tsp. confectioners’ sugar 1/2 tsp. cinnamon Partially thaw and prick bottoms of tart shells. Place on a baking sheet and par-bake according to package or recipe directions, about 10 minutes. Whisk together sugar and flour in a medium, heavy-bottomed pot. Whisk together cream, yolks, salt and vanilla. Whisk into sugar mixture and cook over medium heat, whisking constantly, until mixture boils and thickens (about eight minutes). Transfer to a bowl and cool, whisking frequently, until just warm (about 15 minutes). Spoon about 2 Tbs of the custard into each. Bake in a 400 F oven for 12 minutes. Set tarts on a cooling rack. Sift confectioners’ sugar, then cinnamon, over tops. Serve warm or at room temperature.
“So, the husband buys a new flat screen TV at Costco, along with a flat of eggs,” began Sally’s latest Facebook update. “On the way home, the TV falls on top of the eggs. An opportunity, of course, to make angel food cake from scratch — but what to do with all that yolk?” Sally, it seems, is a fellow food fanatic. Clearly, though, she is of the glass-half-full persuasion, whereas I tend to see nothing but broken egg shells. Nevertheless, I can’t help but wonder whether Sally’s havin married into a ing M Mennonite family might ha caused her to have ac acquire that particular tw of waste-not-wanttwist no not-guilt that compels on to salvage, always one sa salvage. The same twist of gu that causes me guilt to freeze leftover egg yo in sandwich yolks ba baggies after every m meringue, macaroon or pa pavlova. When asked, Sally co confirms she indeed ha no backyard hog has to claim a share in the sp spoils. So, soon enough, th follows a chorus there of friendly recipe offerin ings. “Creme brulee or a Filipino leche flan,” su suggests one friend. “Or Caesar salad dr dressing,” another. “Lemon curd!” say I. “Portuguese custard tarts ta with puff pastry.” “Hollandaise.”
While Sally goes off to count her yolks and consider her options, I begin to take notes. To be perfectly honest, I had no idea there were so many recipes that call for only yolks. Leche flan? Portugese tarts? Where have these been all my life? Meanwhile, back in Manitoba, Sally decides that, since it’s suppertime, she’ll whisk up a pan of ultra-rich scram-
bled eggs with cheddar and chives. I close my computer, cup my chin in my hands and ponder. After a long while, I decide on the tarts — but my frozen yolks, when I inspect them closely, look suspiciously freezer burnt. When they thaw, I’m not convinced they’re tart worthy. Not convinced at all. So, I do the only thing I can.
I crack and separate four fresh eggs. I whisk the yolks into a vanilla custard. And, when I’m left with four egg whites and no immediate use for them, I look over my shoulder for the salvage police, then glop them into the sink, let loose a healthy swish of water and watch them go swirling down the drain. As it turns out, while I’m the type to
skip going to the store for puff pastry when I already have 120 tart shells in the freezer, I’m not really the salvaging type, after all.

Gallantry at Gallipoli By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them. — Lawrence Binyon UR SMALL GROUP OF Canadians are on a boat, crossing the Dardanelles from the town of Canakkale to the Gallipoli peninsula. The dawn sky is washed flamingo pink as we dismount at dockside and board a private bus. It is hard to imagine that, almost a century ago, in April 1915, this placid green countryside, dotted with pine and olive trees, was a maelstrom of whining bullets and booming gunfire, the soil blood-soaked and the slopes littered with the broken bodies of more than 130,780 soldiers — Turks, French, Gurkhas, British, Newfoundlanders, Australians and New Zealanders. British prime minister Winston Churchill’s plan was to push a passage through to the Ottoman Empire’s capital of Constantinople (now Istanbul) in order to open supply lines to Russia through the Black Sea. It was a tragic miscalculation: Tactical blunders, the hellish terrain up steep scrubby hillsides, blazing summer heat, freezing winter storms, dysentery, exhaustion — and ferocious resistance from the Turks — drove the forces to abandon Gallipoli to the triumphant Ottomans in December 1915. Despite the Allied defeat, Gallipoli was more than just a series of military battles. The Turks fought fiercely, but they were not without compassion. The Allies respond-

ed with courage and tenacity. In a rare display of war-time camaraderie, it was duty first, glory in the face of defeat and generosity in the eye of victory. A moving memorial to this spirit of brotherhood in the midst of battle is a statue of a Turkish soldier carrying a wounded Australian. The soldier lay wounded and defenceless in no-man’s land and a tense standoff ensued. Then, a Turkish soldier emerged from a trench, a white rag tied to the barrel of his rifle, which he held high above his head. The guns went silent on both sides. The Turk lifted the stricken soldier and carried him to the safety of his comrades. There were other generosities too: Gifts chucked across noman’s land during periods of ceasefire, including sweets and dates from the Turks, packets of tobacco and tins of bully beef from the Allies. The Ari Burnu cemetery, our second stop, overlooks the Aegean Sea, its trimmed green lawns punctuated by rows of small tombstones. It is quiet here this morning, with only the sound of the wind and the distant lap of waves against the
shore. Twenty-year-old Australian Private Frank Hubert Evans’ epitaph reads: “They Never Fail Who Die In A Great Cause.” It’s ironic, for this was a senseless, futile campaign that accomplished nothing. The most poignant monument of all is the large stone monolith inscribed with army officer Mustafa Kemal Ataturk’s message to the mothers of the fallen soldiers: “Those heroes that shed their blood, “And lost their lives, “You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. “Therefore rest in peace. “There is no difference between the Johnnies, “And the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side, “Here in this country of ours, “You, the mothers, “Who sent their sons from far away countries, “Wipe away your tears, “Your sons are now lying in our bosom, “And are in peace, “After having lost their lives on this land, “They have become our sons as well.” By the time we get to Chanuk Bair, a knoll at the top of a cliff overlooking Suvla Bay, the sun is
up and Ataturk’s towering statue measures its length in shadow across the ground. The commander faces the memorial to the New Zealand regiments, as though in tribute to the brave men slaughtered in one of the most brutal engagements of the entire campaign. I feel a shiver down my spine as I look at the Turkish trenches along the lip of the ridge, where the Ottomans were poised to fire at almost pointblank range. It was madness — the New Zealanders, Australians and British soldiers emerged over the edge of the cliff into a murderous fusillade of bullets. Although this was one of Ataturk’s mostdecisive victories, he was shot in the chest but, fortuitously, the shrapnel only smashed the watch in his pocket, leaving him virtually unscathed. A war hero and popular political figure after the end of the First World War, he went on to become the first president of the new Republic of Turkey. No military units, from what was Canada back then, made it to the Dardanelles. However, in September 1915, the Newfoundland regiment arrived at Suvla Bay — although by then Gallipoli was all but a lost cause. Despite freezing weather, storms, short supplies of food and medicines, the 1,076 members of the regiment valiantly held the defence line against the Turks until Dec. 20, when orders arrived to withdraw from the peninsula. The surviving 170 Newfoundlanders were among the last to leave the Dardenelles.

Over 16 years ago Jim was in a motorcycle accident. He has had to relearn how to walk, talk and sit up. In 1997, Jim was introduced to the Kamloops Brain Injury Association, which United Way supports through organizational funding. “The KBIA has helped me engage with people again. It is very easy to become isolated after suffering such an injury,” Jim said. Today Jim speaks at high schools, educating people about brain injuries and safe driving.

Union at ICBC to vote on proposed deal The union representing approximately 4,600 workers at the Insurance Corporation of B.C. has announced it has reached a tentative four-year agreement with the corporation. The Canadian Office and Professional Employees Union, local 378 (COPE 378) is recommending ratification of the agreement, which includes wage and benefit improvements. The agreement is tentative until it is voted on by COPE 378’s members at ICBC. “This agreement secures some important foundational elements we will build on in future negotiations,” said COPE 378 president David Black in a press release. “The wage increases will keep our members from falling further behind and they will, at long last, get maternity and parental leave top-up.” The previous agreement expired on March 31, 2010. The new agreement will cover June 1, 2010 to June 30, 2014.
Wage increases are staggered and will take effect as follows: • July 1, 2012 (fully retroactive): one per cent. • Jan. 1, 2013: one per cent. • July 1, 2013: one per cent. • Oct. 1, 2013: one per cent. Maternity and parental leave topup will take effect on July 1, 2013, Black said, noting ICBC has also committed to a new workload study, while the union and the corporation have renewed gain-sharing language and have signed-off new provisions for working from home. Job action at ICBC ended on Sunday, Nov. 4. Job action has included overtime and training bans, working to levels set out in the last ICBC workload study and three days of strike action. Union spokesperson Sage Aaron said members will vote within the next month, though dates have not yet been set. Ratification requires a simply 50 per cent, plus one, vote.
Grant for TRU law professor Richard Frimpong Oppong, a leading expert on private international law and one of the founding faculty at the Thompson Rivers University Faculty of Law, has been awarded a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) grant of $42,750 to promote individual rights to international justice. The SSHRC grant will support Oppong’s research into what happens when, after years
of expensive, emotionally challenging, and prolonged litigation before an international court, an individual wins a judgment in their favour, but must then face the often disempowering process to have that judgment enforced. The two-year project, Access to International Justice at the Post-adjudication Phase of International Dispute Settlement: the Role of National Courts, will investigate
the extent to which the lack of effective enforcement mechanisms for international judgments undermine individual rights to international justice, and examine the extent to which national courts may be important sites to overcome this challenge. Oppong’s grant will enable him to hire two research assistants from the first cohort of students in TRU’s Faculty of Law, entering their second year this fall.

Natural disasters teach some sombre lessons
AST WEEK, WE WERE overwhelmed as the TV screens scrolled news about natural disasters on several fronts, including in B.C. and in the northeastern area of the U.S. I wish I could distance myself from the questions raised by natural disaster. In some ways, it is easier for me to address human needs than to process such disaster theologically — to find the reasons for suffering and death. Questions that NARAYAN MITRA gnaw at my soul include: “Why all You Gotta Have this meaningless FAITH madness of epic proportion? Is God telling us, our country, our world something specific? Is this the beginning of the end?” I wish I knew final and definite answers, but that requires me to be God Himself. Having been relieved of that privilege and responsibility, my next-best option is to seek answers in His final and definite revelation in the Bible. Nature can be wobbly, infected and
terrorized by Satan. He has been thrown down from heaven in eternity and toppled on earth in history. Natural disasters are not acts of God, like the insurance industry would describe nature’s fury. They could just as easily be “acts of Satan.” We can underestimate Satan’s power, but anything he does is under the determinative control of God. God’s common grace keeps the earth from complete destruction. The triumph of the Lord Jesus over all principalities and powers at the cross (Col. 2:15) prevents it from obliteration. Satan, through natural disaster and other activities, attempts to tear into the earth. Humanity’s only eternal security and earthly sustenance at the present is the Triune God. One day, after sin refills God’s nostrils and He removes His people, this earth will destruct. Satan’s present version of natural disasters is an “approved-for-all-audiences” preview of what will happen when divine mercy is removed. Until then, planet Earth is suspended between the poles in cosmic warfare. Satan persists in evil activity, having obtained, like in Job’s case, clearance from God to afflict the earth. During the specialized period of divine ter-
ror, however, God’s wrath will be unleashed on human sin. When God’s plans for this worm earth are done, the Sovereign Creator will create the new earth — one totally attached to Him. What does natural evil tell us about humanity? • Natural disaster highlights man’s inability to predict and control. The quest of the secular (i.e., without reference to God) humanist enterprise is deficient at its very premise. Man is not the measure or foundation of anything. He is small, weak and at the mercy of the elements. Natural disasters call for humility before God and remind believers to find their security in Him (Ps. 46:1-3). • Natural disasters may bring out the best in compassion and community. The whole world unites for search and rescue, recovery and aid and for relief and development. Christians, with their special obligation to love their neighbour and especially to do good to the husehold of faith (Gal. 6:10) ought to serve in the forefront of aid and relief efforts with unselfish abandon and generosity. • Natural disaster also provokes mankind’s resistance and defiance of God. Unable to predict and without hope, humanity rebels against the God who could
have exercised control of the elements. In Rev. 16:21, “gigantic hailstones, weighing about 100 pounds each, fell from heaven on people, but they blasphemed God because of the plague of hail, since it was so horrendous.” Christians can function as watchmen warning people of future disaster and respectfully pleading for the apathetic to awaken and the defiant to become compliant to God’s terms for human salvation (Ezek. 33:1-6). • Yet, natural disasters can showcase human resilience and perseverance. In fulfillment of the God-given mandate to rule nature (Gen. 1:26,27; Ps. 8), we can flourish precisely where we have endured calamity. • At other times, natural disaster induces reflection and repentance. At the face of disaster, whether man-made (Lk. 13:1-3) or by natural causes (Lk. 13:4) — the tower fell probably due to an earthquake — we must repent and evidence fruit (Lk. 13:6-9). Let us then repent, for eternity is infinitely more important than earth, relationships are finitely more so than tasks and life definitely more than raiment. firstname.lastname@example.org KTW welcomes submissions to its Faith page.
