TRAGEDY IN CLEARWATER

Teachers killed when vehicle goes into river By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The body of 16-year-old CJ Fowler was found in a ravine in Guerin Creek on Dec. 5. The girl, whose full name is Summer Star Elizabeth Krista-Lee Fowler, has family from the Gitxsan First Nation village of Gitanmaax near Hazelton in northwestern B.C.

Who killed C.J.? And why? By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

When C.J. Fowler was murdered in Kamloops last week, the 16-yearold was hours away from returning to Terrace. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said investigators have learned Fowler, whose body was found on an embankment in Guerin Creek on Dec. 5, had purchased a bus ticket home for later that day. She had been in Kamloops since Dec. 1, police believe, spending time couch-surfing with friends in the Tournament Capital. Learned said investigators have

interviewed many of those acquaintances, as well as a male companion with whom Fowler is believed to have travelled to Kamloops. Eight detectives are working fulltime to find out what happened to Fowler. “It’s still very, very active,” Learned said. “The homicide investigators have characterized the investigation as proceeding favourably.” According to Learned, police are working more than 200 leads — the result of public tips and interviews. Investigators have narrowed their interest to the period between midnight and 8 a.m. on Dec. 5. X See POLICE A6

The tragic weekend deaths of a young married couple who taught in Clearwater have been amplified by the fact the wife was in the late stages of pregnancy. Clearwater and the Kamloops-Thompson school district are mourning the deaths of two members of their communities. Skye and Courtney Buck died on Sunday night (Dec. 10) when the vehicle in which they were travelling left Highway 5 at Wolf Corner and crashed into the North Thompson River. The two, described by friends as highschool sweethearts, taught in the community — Skye at Clearwater secondary, where he taught math and was a learningassistance teacher, and Courtney at Raft River elementary, where she taught kindergarten and Grade 1. Skye’s parents, Brent and Tracy, also teach at the secondary school. Skye graduated from Clearwater secondary

in 1999. Courtney graduated from the same high school in 2000. Skye would have marked his 31st birthday today (Dec. 11). His wife was 30 and was in the seventh or eighth month of pregnancy when the accident occurred, according to those who knew her. Clearwater RCMP said officers were called about the crash about 17 kilometres south of the community just before 7 p.m. Police said it was apparent at the scene a northbound vehicle had lost control, left

the highway and gone down a 30-metre embankment into the North Thompson River. Debris indicated the vehicle struck a tree at some point. Due to the lateness and poor lighting conditions, an initial attempt to find the vehicle was unsuccessful. Police resumed the search on Monday, Dec. 11. Skye and Courtney were graduates of Thompson Rivers University, where Skye was a star basketball player, named BCCAA Player of the Year in 2004, an all-star on the CCAA Tournament

Championship first team and a CCAA AllCanadian. He played professionally in the English Basketball League in 2005. The Bucks and Courtney’s family, the Dekelvers, have a long history in the Clearwater area. Premier Christy Clark was in the community of 5,000 last month for the opening of Ed Buck Manor, a $1.6-million home for seniors and people with disabilities. The facility was named after Ed Buck for his many works in the Clearwater area.

Trash-happy Kamloopsians will pay more By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Residents who aren’t producing much garbage will have a bit more cash in their pockets in 2013, compared to their trashhappy counterparts. At its meeting on Tuesday, Dec. 11, Kamloops city council will set garbage, sewer and water rates for the next year. Of the three, city staff are proposing hikes in two categories — but the extra solid-waste collection fee will apply only to those using the two largest cart sizes offered by the city. Sustainability and environmental services manager Jen Fretz said the increase will cover increasing labour, landfill fees and fuel costs. Fretz said staff chose to put the increase on the 245- and 360-litre bins, the largest of the four sizes offered, as a way of mak-

ing collection costs more equitable. “Currently, the larger bins are much cheaper than the smaller ones per volume,” she said. The increase will see homeowners with 245-litre bins charged an extra $6 a year. Those with 360-litre bins will pay $22 more annually. Those two sizes of carts cover more than half the homes in Kamloops. Of the 25,000 bins in the city, Fretz said about 11,000 are 245-litre and another 5,000 are 360-litre. She said by increasing fees only for the largest bins, the city is hoping some residents may feel encouraged to switch to the smaller-sized units. In its 2012 budget, council agreed to set aside $10,000 to allow residents to downsize their garbage cans for free, instead of paying the usual $50 fee to have their new container delivered and the old

one taken away. Fretz said fewer than 100 people have taken advantage of the free reduction, noting the program will continue into the new year. Sewer rates are also set to go up by five per cent in 2013, which will cost the average household an additional $12. The money will go to the city’s sewerreserve fund to help cover increased operational costs when a new wastewatertreatment plant comes online in 2014. A planned increase to water rates, however, isn’t proceeding. According to a staff report, the city had initially planned to increase the fee by five per cent — about $27 for an average household. However, a review of the water utility’s operating budget found some cost-cutting measures, which will offset the need for an increase.

BC Hydro ‘bully boards’ cause concern age of 14. So far, the “bully boards,” as Bouvier calls them, haven’t spread beyond a BC Hydro box in Aberdeen and another on Lansdowne Street downtown. But, in the two months she’s been aware of the practice, Bouvier said 22 names have been written on those boxes. “And, these are two major bus stops,” she said. “It’s very concerning.” Bouvier said she is only aware of one other B.C. community where the practice is popular — Vancouver. However, the messages there, Bouvier said, tend to be more drug-related and appear to be written by older teens. In the case of the Aberdeen hydro box, Bouvier said she’s been in touch with the neighbourhood association, which is now monitoring the area. Bylaw officers are keeping a close watch on the hydro box downtown. Bouvier is also planning to work with the Kamloops RCMP

STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s a new trend Kamloops graffiti task force executive director Ronnie Bouvier is desperately hoping won’t catch on. Over the past two months, two BC Hydro boxes near busy bus stops have become host to a series of bullying messages. However, unlike traditional nuisance graffiti, these messages go beyond bad words and racial slurs and directly target and name specific youths, Bouvier said. “It’s a message saying, ‘Ronnie is ugly, this is where Ronnie lives, this is Ronnie’s phone number.’ That’s what we’re seeing,” Bouvier said. The writing is also often sexually explicit. “It’s not graffiti, it’s nothing artistic,” Bouvier said. “It’s just messages and it’s so other kids read those messages. “So, you know it’s bullying.” Based on the grammar, writing style and wording of the messages, she believes they are being written by other youths under the

Bouvier said that once they’ve been spotted, the damage has already been done. “I’ve had one young girl who was one of the targets contact me and say, ‘There’s a bad thing about me on here and I’m trying to catch the bus,’” Bouvier said. “So, we went and took care of it right away. “But, I mean, she’d already read it.”

on a strategy to keep the bully boards from spreading to other areas of the city. Her organization is documenting the graffiti and passing the information to Mounties, while also remaining in contact with the Kamloops-Thompson school district. While the graffiti task force is making it a priority to clean up any bullying messages,

Police are asking public for help with tips X From A1

Police are asking anyone in the Guerin Creek area who saw or heard anything suspicious during those hours to contact them. Additionally, Learned said, Mounties are hoping someone in the Grandview Terrace and Dalgleish Drive areas with a home-security surveillance system might have caught useful evidence on tape. An autopsy was completed last week, but police are still waiting on toxicology results, which aren’t expected for a period of weeks. Describing Fowler as “a troubled youth,” Learned said she was known to have used drugs and investigators want to know if drugs played a role in her death. Mounties are not saying publicly how Fowler was killed. “There’s a lot of information that’s not being disclosed,” Learned said. “It’s very important to maintain the integrity of the investigation.” Kamloops Mounties have said Fowler was a missing person at the time of her death, but it’s not known from where she was missing. Terrace RCMP have said she was not the subject of a missingperson complaint there. Learned said Fowler let friends and family in Terrace know she was going to Kamloops. “It was to come down and see friends,” he said. “That was the reason she had given.” Gitsan First Nation hereditary Chief Simidiiks is Fowler’s great-uncle and told CTV her death may be connected to drugs. “If this is related to drugs, I would like to pass the message on to other drug users to try and find a way to get away from this drug business and become a person who would think safe and no longer get hooked on that stuff.” Police believe Fowler knew her killer.

“In reality, there is someone who is responsible for her death that is still out and about

in the community,” Learned said. “But, the investigators don’t believe there

is a broader threat. If there was, we have a responsibility to communicate that to the

community.” Fowler’s death is Kamloops’ fourth murder of 2012.

Anyone with information, or area residents with video surveillance, is asked

to contact police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

City murder rate will rise in 2012 By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Tournament Capital was in line with national homicide trends last year, according to statistics released recently by Statistics Canada, but the numbers for 2012 will likely tell a different story. There were 598 reported homicides in Canada in 2011, up from 554 the previous year. That marked the first increase in national murder numbers in three years. In Kamloops, two homicides were reported in 2011 — the beating death of Archie Lepretre in a downtown schoolyard and the murder of Phil Steel in his Westmount home. Police said at the time that Lepretre’s murder was gang-related, but no arrests have been made. In Steel’s case, his son was charged with second-degree murder and ultimately found not criminally responsible by way of a men-

tal disorder. Canada’s murder rate in 2011 was 1.73 — meaning that’s how many people were killed for every 100,000. In Kamloops, the murder rate was 2.33, based on a population of 85,678. In 2012, Kamloops has recorded four homicides, not including the disappearance in April of Cassandra Wilson, who police believe met with foul play. Barring any further murders, that means Kamloops’ murder rate this year will be 4.67. If Mounties’ suspicion about Wilson’s disappearance is confirmed, the rate will jump to 5.84. Compared to 2011 numbers, that would give Kamloops a higher murder rate than last year’s murder capital, Winnipeg, which saw 5.08 people killed per 100,000. But, according to Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned, there’s no cause for alarm. “In a smaller location, where the numbers are smaller, one

DEATH BY GENDER Both of the murder victims in 2011 in Kamloops were men, and men are believed to have been responsible for both slayings as well. This year, two of the four people killed in Kamloops were men, as were all three of those so far charged in local homicides. That is not abnormal, considering national trends. According to Statistics Canada, seven in 10 homicide victims and nine in 10 accused killers nationally last year were male. or two incidents can reflect numerically as being more significant than they really are,” he said.

“The numbers are so small that to start using percents or a mathematical identifier to contextualize the numbers is woefully misleading.” And, Learned said, all the homicides in Kamloops this year — Wilson’s case not included — were believed to have been committed by someone close to the victim. In March, a North Shore man is alleged to have killed his father; in July, a fight between friends at a downtown house party ended in a death; in October, a man is alleged to have killed his common-law wife; and, last week, police believe someone who knew C.J. Fowler killed her before leaving the 16-year-old’s body in Guerin Creek. “A lot of the murders, as most of them are, are committed by people who know their victim,” Learned said.

“When the homicides are ultimately solved, statistically speaking, a profound number of victims knew their attackers.” According to Statistics Canada, 48 per cent of solved homicides in 2011 were committed by an acquaintance or friend of the victim and 33 per cent by a family member. Strangers, according to statistics, committed 15 per cent of murders in Canada last year. Kelowna recorded two murders in 2011, for a rate of 1.10. In Abbotsford, there was just one reported homicide last year, for a rate of 0.56. Provincially, there were 87 murders recorded in B.C. in 2011, four more than the previous year, but down significantly from 2008 and 2009, when tallies approached 120 per year.

Local lawmakers stands up to ‘bias’ among city media

H

E BEGAN HIS ROOKIE term at city hall by standing up for exercise. One year into his municipal political career, Donovan Cavers appears to be standing up the media. Cavers is known as the green city councillor, both in environmental practices and in political-party affiliation. He is a passionate advocate of transit use, a declared opponent of the car culture, a foe of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine and a booster of shopping and eating local. However, the young man who won a seat on council in the November 2011 civic election has gone from being mildly entertaining (earlier this year, he urged fellow councillors to stand while speaking, as a gesture to promote physical fitness) to becoming mercurial. Last week, Cavers told Jessica Wallace, a reporter with infotel.ca, that he has decided against speaking on a personal rezoning application, due to what he views as bias among local media in reporting on the issue. Cavers has an application before council to build a carriage suite on his mother’s South Kamloops property. The initial application was denied, but it is going back a second time after the original application was tweaked. Whether it succeeds depends on an upcoming public hearing, after which council will decide. According to Wallace, Cavers told her he doesn’t think his application to

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS build a carriage suite on his mother’s property would have garnered media attention if he wasn’t a city councillor. “I’ve decided that, unless the media starts covering every carriage suite, I don’t want to talk about it,” Cavers told Wallace. Cavers is right, of course. Coverage of his carriage-suite application likely wouldn’t have resulted in as much spilled ink had he been Joe Sixpack and not Coun. Donovan Cavers. And rightly so. Cavers is a lawmaker who is applying to gain approval under a law (bylaw) that was revised just last year. When a lawmaker at any level of government is an applicant under one of the laws over which he has sway, there will be (and should) be public scrutiny by way of media coverage. Reporters at city hall need to cover the issue and tell the public what is happening and whether there are conflicts of interest that compel elected representatives to recuse themselves from discussion.

Cavers’ fellow councillor, Marg Spina, also applied for permission to construct a carriage suite under the bylaw amendment. The media wrote stories on Spina’s application and subsequent approval — with nary a claim of bias and threat of silence from the councillor. In fact, according to city hall, there have been a grand total of six carriage-suite applications deal with since the March 2011 bylaw amendment. A full 33 per cent of those applications — two — came from members (city councillors) of the very body (city council) that created and amended the bylaw to allow the applications. And, reporting on this is seen as a bias? There have been many, many occasions during which a city council matter becomes more newsworthy simply because a city councillor is involved. Mayor Peter Milobar has had to step aside when an unrelated liquorlicence issue was discussed, simply because he owns a liquor store in town. The media, KTW included, has reported on that without a charge of bias or a threat of silence. To be the subject of a story concerning local laws when one is among the lawmakers should not surprise anybody — least of all the lawmaker who becomes the subject of the story. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

In this very edition of Kamloops This Week are two stories about bullying. One, on page A4, is disturbing in that it tells of yet another way youth are bullying each other — in this case, by writing horrible comments on BC Hydro boxes in Kamloops. The other story, on page A15, tells of Chase elementary teacher Jennifer Jones and her wonderful bucket and classroom dojo projects, where the idea is to improve the way children interact and view themselves. As one student noted, the proactive endeavours can go a long way to reducing bullying. Jones and her work deserve to be highlighted. She is obviously a passionate teacher who should be celebrated. If only all parents were as enthusiastic and involved in the kids’ lives. Granted, it is not possible to document every minute of your child’s life, to ensure your sweet little one is not mocking others, stealing lunch money or writing terrible things about fellow students on public property. But, there is a reason some kids do become bullies — be it the verbal, physical or emotional kind. And, much of that reason does indeed bloom at home. It is incumbent for parents to get involved with their children, to talk with them, spend time with them, ask questions of them and, most importantly, know when to be a parent and say no. Bullying has been in the news so often lately, it is becoming white noise among the various issues of the day that dominate conversation. Do not let the issue fade away. Do not let a publicized suicide become something that happened back then. As a parent, get involved with your kids and stay involved with your kids. Lives truly are at stake — get involved and stay involved lest the end of one is later traced to a careless and mean comment scrawled on a BC Hydro box.

SURVEY RESULTS

Kamloops: Terrible Driver Capital of Canada Editor: I’m 55. I am from Nova Scotia, now live in Kamloops and have lived all across Canada. The worst drivers I have ever seen are here in Kamloops. I have no idea why. They are way worse than drivers in Toronto, Montreal, Kelowna or Vancouver. There is far more traffic in those cities,

yet drivers there are more polite, use signals, drive fast on the highway and slow in parking lots and know how to merge. People in Kamloops seem polite, but put them behind a wheel and look out. Every time I leave the house and drive even five kilometres, I see at least one person who should not be driving.

I just drove to Ontario to visit my son and was driving back and forth from Hamilton to Toronto. That corridor has the heaviest traffic in Canada and, in two weeks, I came across fewer bad drivers than I see in Kamloops in one day. I’m not putting Kamloops down. I love the place but, for some reason, and I

don’t know why, this city is full of bad drivers. It’s so bad I now keep track of who’s the worst. Here’s roughly what I have found, with the worst drivers listed first: Men, 40 to 60 years of age; women, 30 to 50 years of age; newcomers to Canada; seniors. The best drivers I have seen are new driv-

ers and young drivers. I have no idea why this is happing, but be honest with yourself and just watch and see what you observe. One other thing — in most cities, taxi and bus drivers are bad, but not here. I have not once recorded anything negative on one of them. Dave Shaw Kamloops

Seeing red over Yellow Cab’s perplexing no-doubles policy Editor: On Nov. 13, my son travelled by Greyhound to Kamloops to resume his studies at Thompson Rivers University. After a lengthy bus ride, he arrived at the depot at night, intending, as usual, to take a taxi to the university. There happened to be two Yellow Cab cars at the depot. Two other people were also waiting for a cab to TRU. Great, my son he thought, we can share a cab. The first student agreed. Just when he was about to enter the cab, the driver told him, “No doubles.” Off went the taxi to TRU with one person inside. The second person was also going to

TRU. He hopped into the second cab and the driver sped away. No doubles. There were no more cabs waiting. There was no offer to call another taxi and no offer to come back and get him. My son’s cellphone was dead and, although he had paper bills, he had no coins to call a cab via the payphone. This left him no option but to walk in the dark, packing his suitcase, to the university. Had this been my daughter travelling alone, or had there been an incident along the way, one could only imagine. Since when are two individuals going to the same location unable to share the cab and the fare? Apparently, if you want to take a

Yellow Cab in Kamloops, you have to go as a single — or is that just the case if one is a student at TRU? I phoned the owner of the company twice to express my concerns and to perhaps ask that drivers to be aware of the safety issues identified. The dispatcher was sympathetic and took my information, but the owner never responded. I urge students and Kamloops citizens to use other taxi companies. Perhaps their policies are more student-friendly, ecologically sound and safer for the general public. Pam Storie Rock Creek

Kamloops — and B.C. — has seen a spike in the number of pedestrian/vehicle accidents in 2012. This map shows the locations and details of some of the more serious incidents in Kamloops this year. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com to view the map and information associated with each incident.

At one of the spots where Westsyde Road and Parkview Drive intersect, the pedestrian crossing has it all: Painted lines, overhead signage and flashing lights. To the south, where the two streets connect up again, it’s only the signs and lines — and it’s here that a vehicle struck a 20 year-old Kamloops man last week as he was crossing the road, sending him to hospital with serious injuries. The crosswalk is already slated for retrofitting, like its counterpart a few blocks up, city traffic and transportation engineer Chris Darwent told KTW. And, in the wake of a series of serious and sometimes fatal pedestrian collisions during the past few weeks, City of Kamloops staff are taking another look at their improvement priorities for the coming year. However, Darwent said, the onus is on

drivers and pedestrians to pay more attention to their surroundings. “Every chance we get, we want to send a reminder out to both drivers and pedestrians to use the skills you learned in school to cross the road,” he told KTW. For pedestrians, that means putting away cellphones and attempting to make eye contact with drivers before stepping into the street. Drivers, Darwent said, need to remember pedestrians are legally allowed to cross at any intersection, even if there are no painted lines on the road. “Even keep your eye open for inattentive pedestrians,” he said. “Even if they don’t look like they’re going to cross, they still might, so keep your eyes open for people walking by the road.” The pedestrian collisions won’t lead to any immediate action on the city’s part, Darwent said, though an accident history can bump an intersection up the priority list for curb extensions, flashing beacons and the like when the city decides how it will spend its yearly $125,000 on crosswalk improvement. Streets with high traffic and pedestrian volumes and intersections near schools and parks also take priority. While the city launched a pilot program this past summer aimed at getting drivers to slow down and follow posted speed

limits, it is on hold until spring. Darwent said the issue is that the “Hey Neighbour, Slow Down” program relied mainly on posted signs, urging motorists to reduce their speeds. “In the winter months, it’s a bit trickier for us to do that,” he said. Staff are also still working out whether the program, which ran on Valleyview Drive, Qu’appelle Boulevard, Rosehill Road and Fraser Street, was as effective as they would like. While Darwent said motorists who were often going 70 km/h in 50 km/hr zones tended to reduce their speeds while the signs were up, there doesn’t appear to have been a lasting change in driving patterns in any of the areas. “But, we did consistently see a drop with the signs up,” he said. “We want to keep trying it and see if we can get an effect when the signs are out.” Though the signs won’t be back for several months, Darwent suggested motorists can still take a lesson from the program at this time of year. “Pay attention to the speed limit. Even if you feel safer driving that way, take a step back and think about the driveways and corners,” he said. “The road’s 50 for a reason in an urban environment like this. There’s just a lot of action going on.”

Spike in pedestrian deaths hard to fathom By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

In 2012, four pedestrians have been killed on Kamloops roadways. The only cities in B.C. with more pedestrian fatalities this year are Surrey, with five, and Vancouver, with 11. According to Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned, only two pedestrians were killed in the Tournament Capital between 2007 and 2011. He said the spike in local fatalities in 2012 is tough to understand. “There’s no single corollary factor that uniformly links all of these,” he said. “We know that we’ve got people who are distracted pedestrians —

and you could say the same thing about some drivers.” On Nov. 21, a woman was killed while crossing Victoria Street at Sixth Avenue in downtown Kamloops. In July, a man was struck and killed by a vehicle near Cree Drive and Salish Road on the Tk’emlups Indian Band reserve. On April 28, a man was killed after being run over by what is believed to have been a tractor-trailer unit on the shoulder of the TransCanada Highway in Valleyview. And, in March, a woman crossing 12th Street at Tranquille Road died after being hit by an SUV. Add to that a string

of pedestrians left with serious injuries — most recently on Dec. 5, when a 20-year-old man was left in critical condition after being run down in a Westsyde crosswalk — and, Learned said, it’s time for everyone to be more careful. “Drivers and pedestrians,” he said. “We understand that drivers must yield to pedestrians — that’s not disputed. “But, the drivers have to be given a chance to see you and respond to your interest in crossing.” Kamloops is not alone in seeing a spike in pedestrian fatalities. According to a report released last week by the BC Coroners Service, the numbers are up

across the province. In 2011, 54 pedestrians were killed in B.C. — up slightly from 51 and 53 the previous two years. So far this year, there have been 63 pedestrian fatalities provincially. Of those, 13 have been in the Interior. Learned said it’s important for a pedestrian to know drivers in the area are aware of his or her intentions. “Make eye contact with the driver,” he said. “Make sure they know you’re there and you’re planning to step off the curb and into the lane of travel.”

Valerie Brook, 67, of Kamloops., died on Nov. 21 after she was struck by a 2002 Ford F-150 truck while she was crossing Victoria Street at Sixth Avenue in the crosswalk. A 62-year-old man was driving while prohibited from doing so. Allison Declercq-Matthas photo

Teens charged in fire By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Seven people have been charged under a municipal littering bylaw in connection with a large blaze in Westsyde in May. Kamloops Fire Rescue Capt. Sheldon Guertin said the accused — one 17-year-old and six 18-year-olds, all male — were ticketed after an investigation focused on a Facebook picture uploaded shortly after the fire. The image appeared to show a group of young men posing with

a large pile of wooden pallets. Guertin said investigators determined the pallets had been dropped off by the seven men now facing charges. There was not enough evidence to lay charges in relation to the fire itself, but Guertin said the littering charges — and the accompanying $1,000 fines — are the next-best thing. “If the pallets were never there, the chances of us having a fire there wasn’t likely,” he said. “The way we looked at it was cause and effect and we wanted

to send a clear message that this is not acceptable in our community.” The May 30 blaze in the Noble Creek area above Westsyde grew to 3.5 hectares before firefighters could extinguish it. Guertin said the exhaustive operation cost taxpayers about $70,000. He said two of the accused have made arrangements to pay their fines, while the remaining five will likely fight the charges in bylaw court.

Firefighters watch from the one-kilometre mark of Noble Lake Road as Kamloops Fire Rescue crews, joined by the Forest Service crews, work on a fire on May 30, just past Dairy Road in Westsyde. Seven teens have been charged with littering in connection to the blaze after an investigation into a photograph posted on Facebook. The littering charges carry with them $1,000 fines. Two of the teens have agreed to pay the fines; the other five are expected to fight the charges in court. KTW file photo

So far, cab stands downtown dud of an idea It was meant to bring some order to the downtown bar flush. Thus far, however, the city’s late-night cab-stand program has brought more frustration than success. Unveiled in May, the cab stands located on Victoria and Lansdowne Street were supposed to get patrons away from closing bars and into orderly lineups as they

waited for transportation home. But, at a meeting of the city’s co-ordinated enforcement task force on Monday, Dec. 10, community safety manager Jon Wilson said the city hasn’t been able to get cab drivers from either of the two companies operating in the city to park at the stands. Instead, taxis are still picking up people

New dialysis unit on its way The Interior Health Authority has issued an invitation to tender for the renovation and light construction work required for the new community dialysis unit (CDU) in Kamloops. The new CDU, planned for a centrally located leased space on the North Shore, was announced this past summer. Funded by the BC Renal Agency and operated by the IHA, it will allow stable kidney patients access to renal services outside of Royal Inland Hospital. The unit will incorporate an “involved-care” patient selfmanagement model, which allows patients to gradually increase their level of independence within a

supportive environment, leading to improved quality of life and physical and mental well-being. The model offers an opportunity for patients to set individual goals, learn new skills and gain control over their health. “By offering patient centered care in the community setting, we are addressing the increasing need for dialysis services and ensuring those services are accessible,” said IHA board chairman Norman Embree. The invitation to tender is expected to close in mid-January and the contract will be awarded toward the end of the month. Construction will begin in February.

who flag them down after 10 p.m. — the time at which the cab stands are supposed to come into use. “The drivers really just aren’t co-operating with the request,” Wilson said. “They’re driving where they want to, picking up who they want to.” Right now, there’s nothing in the city bylaws to force cab drivers to

use the stands. Wilson said bylaw enforcement will look at the issue to determine whether the city needs to change that. But, if the city were to bring in a bylaw limiting taxi pickups to designated addresses and stands, Wilson said it would likely require stepped-up enforcement from bylaw officers downtown.

Filling buckets big in Chase By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Students in Jennifer Jones’ classroom at Chase elementary are carrying buckets around with them. They’re invisible containers — but, what they contain can be seen every day. Inspired by the award-winning book Have You Filled a Bucket Today? by Carol McCloud, the idea is to improve the way children interact and view themselves. Jones said the idea of having to fill a bucket “seems like the perfect metaphor for students to understand the behaviours they are exhibiting and others around them might be using.” Added to the bucket-list program is another one — classroom dojo — recommended to her by School District 73’s technology co-ordinator. It involves tracking behaviours of the Grade 4/5 class, with points given for good behaviours and taken away for bad. It’s all done online through anything from a computer to a smartphone. Jones said using the dojo program helps her students track their

progress online in a fun way with their avatar and a visual graft that shows what behaviours have led to the points. The information can be emailed to or used during conferences with parents to give a clearer picture of how their child is behaving at school. Teachers can choose what is graded — it can be anything from not doing your homework to showing leadership. The lessons are many, Jones said, and her students are having fun with the programs as they learn. Alyssa Becker said “using dogo, I’ve learned that you should always get a positive, not a negative.” Gianna Badesso sees the concept as something that could reduce bullying. “Bucket filling has gone a long way,” she said. “First, it was just our class but, now, the whole school knows about it. It’s spreading really fast. “If every school does it, then, in the world, there wouldn’t be as much bullying.” Chase Winning sees it as a way of doing good — and feeling good. “If you see a person who is

down, you can try to help them out,” he said. It will fill their bucket and your own.” Kamloops-Thompson school district superintendent Terry Sullivan said what Jones is doing in her classroom “is creative, innovative and leading edge. “We have many teachers like her who are engaging children and youth every day using a variety of methodologies.” Technology continues to transform the education system, Sullivan added. “We will have 4,000 students this year, predominantly secondary, who will be taking a portion of their program online,” he said. “TRU has 12,000 students on campus and 13,000 taking courses online. “The world is changing, which is why we have to look at structures like school calendars that have been in place for many decades. “In my view, nothing is as good as an excellent teacher engaging children in a classroom. “However, we are finding new ways to deepen that engagement, enrich curriculum and empower teachers. This is another example of that.”

BC Housing education awards for city residents Two Kamloops residents are recipients of BC Housing education awards that will help them further their education. At age 22, Heather Cameron was addicted to drugs and pregnant. She was able to get the help and guidance she needed through a recovery program in Vancouver specifically for expecting mothers. After returning to Kamloops and giving birth to her first daughter, Cameron began to build a non-profit grassroots agency in Kamloops to

serve expectant mothers with substance abuse. Cameron is the recipient of a $1,000 Kinloch Education Award and is enrolled in the nursing program at Thompson Rivers University. Tamara Duncan, a 38-year-old mother of four, is the recipient of a $750 bursary. Duncan started her practical nurse program at Sprott Shaw Community College in September. BC Housing launches the Education Awards Program in January of each year.

but there would be no cause or occasion where the doors would be closed when people are at the end of the line.” Burton said BC Transit first became aware of the issue when the driver filed an incident report about the confrontation at the end of his shift on Tuesday, Dec. 4, as is standard policy. However, Burton said, that report doesn’t mention the closed doors or other aspects of the incident that are clearly visible. “When we saw the video, it was very different from what the incident report read,” she said. The man behind the video also filed a formal complaint and has spoken with transit officials several times. While FirstCanada, the transit contractor which employs the driver, launched its own investigation shortly

after the incident was reported, a senior BC Transit staff member is also headed to Kamloops on Monday, Dec. 10, to conduct a second investigation. The results of that probe are expected today (Dec. 11) or on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Burton said she is not aware of any past incidents involving the driver. “I would say this is a very, highly unusual — I’ve never heard of an incident like this before,” she said. But, she noted, there is likely another side to the story that has not yet been heard. “It would be wonderful to hear from other people who were on the bus, because I’m sure there were other factors that led up to this incident,” Burton said. A manager for FirstCanada declined to comment on the incident, referring KTW to BC Transit.

A Kamloops bus driver accused through YouTube of holding passengers against their will has been suspended with pay as BC Transit and local contractor FirstCanada ULC mount internal investigations. A local man known online as TrueLiesCanada posted video of an incident between the driver, himself and a young woman to the popular streaming-video website two days ago, calling it “Kamloops BC Transit Driver Kidnaps Passengers.” According to the man, the driver “blew through” the woman’s stop and the one after that, then parked the bus at the Thompson Rivers University exchange and locked the doors. “He then comes to the back of the bus, and photographs her,” he

wrote in a commentary posted along with the video, “like WTF?” The video shows the driver out of his seat, talking to the woman — whose face is obscured by the angle of the camera. “You’re the worst bus driver,” the woman says, sounding upset. “All I wanted to do is get off at my stop.” BC Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton said there are several things that concern her about the video. Under the circumstances, BC Transit policy calls for the driver to stay seated and call a transit supervisor. Neither of those things happened, though Burton said the driver has been with the company nine years and would be aware of the policies. “The doors would never be closed at an exchange with passengers onboard,” Burton said. “There might not be the back door open,

Is the end of the world nigh?

BRRRRRRRRRRRRLESQUE!

Do we really have only 10 more days on this earth? Much has been written and discussed about the supposed end of the world on Dec. 21, due to the interpretation by some of the Mayan calendar. As the end-of-world frenzy ramps up, the Kamloops Astronomical Society is presenting End of the World Theories at its Wednesday, Dec. 12, meeting, which will take place in room 375 in the Science Building at

Thompson Rivers University. To coincide with the Mayan calendar’s “end of the era and beginning of the new long calendar”, various theories will be discussed at the Kamloops Astronomical Society’s monthly meeting. Included will be discussions on a collision with Nibiru, solar maximum, black holes, Mayan end of the long count calendar and interaction between Earth and Alcyone, the largest star of Pleiades cluster.

Adoption trust awards $20K to local group The Lex Reynolds Adoption and Permanency Trust Fund has awarded $95,000 for six projects to support adoption and permanency in B.C. — five of which are specifically directed towards assisting First Nations communities. Included is Lii

Michif Otipemisiwak Family and Community Services of Kamloops, which will receive $20,000 to promote adoption and permanency arrangements for Métis youth who have been in foster care for a significant part of their lives. The independent trust fund was

established in 2003 by the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) to help British Columbia’s children and youth who are awaiting adoption or other permanent connections. The trust fund is managed by the Victoria Foundation.

In 2009, it was re-named after Lex Reynolds to honour the late lawyer and children’s advocate — and adoptive father — who was the fund’s founding co-chair. The permanent endowment generates money to support organizations and individuals in finding and help-

ing to maintain lifelong connections for BC’s children and youth. As of Aug. 31, the MCFD reported there were 8,133 children and youth in care in B.C. More than 1,000 of them are waiting for

a permanent family. Since 2003, $821,500 has been awarded to 156 projects across the province. These include 17 mini-grants of $1,500 each distributed earlier this year.

To make a donation or to learn more about the Lex Reynolds Adoption and Permanency Trust Fund, go online to connectingforlife.ca or call the Victoria Foundation at 250-381-5532.

Kamloops Visitor Centre to get a charge The Kamloops Visitor Centre across from Aberdeen Mall will become the site for a electricvehicle charging station. The City of Kamloops has received funding from the provincial government to install a Level II charging station at the home of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce. The station will be installed in early March 2013. The Level II stations will be able to fully recharge an electric-car battery within three to six hours, depending on the battery system in the specific electric vehicle. “Taking this initial step to make electric-vehicle charging more widely available to local and visiting drivers supports several of the Sustainable Kamloops Plan goals,” said Jen Fretz, sustainability

and environmental- services manager with the City of Kamloops. “It strategically positions Kamloops as part of BC’s new ‘green highway’.” Sustainable Kamloops Plan goals include reducing consumption of fossil fuels for transportation locally by 25 per cent by 2020; reducing transportation-related greenhouse-gas emissions to 2.4 tonnes per capita by 2020; and encouraging the use of alternate-fuelled motor vehicles in the community. The new charging station is one of 570 planned for across B.C. by March 31, at a cost of $2.74 million. In addition, two charging stations will be installed in Case, at Chase Equipment and Supply Ltd., 6252 Trans-Canada Hwy.

The City of Kamloops Community Safety department and the RCMP want the public to ensure their vehicle and valuables are not at risk. Their awareness campaign is underway in the downtown as information placards are being selectively placed upon vehicles showing evidence of the risk of theft of visible contents inside the vehicle. Dave Eagles/KTW

UP TO

side parking are all prime target areas for thieves. Community Safety is using stickers to convey the simple message of securing valuables. They are also asking Kamloops retailers to put the campaign stickers on their retail bags, demonstrating their commitment to community safety. Anyone who receives the sticker can go to the city’s website at kamloops. ca to enter to win a prize. Prizes will be drawn weekly during December.

while volunteers patrol parking lots and talk with shoppers. “We’ve seen huge success with this program and we are excited to see it back for a fourth year,” said crime-prevention co-ordinator Sandro Piroddi. “We couldn’t do it without our fantastic volunteer team.” Also part of the endeavour is the “Out of Sight” campaign for a second holiday season to remind the public to secure their valuables while shopping. The campaign is a lock-out auto crime initiative that has been developed by Kamloops Community Safety to teach shoppers about the potential risk of theft from vehicles.

Tips for shoppers to avoid being a victim: • Do not leave any of your holiday shopping in plain view (secure it in the trunk or cover it). • Do not leave your items unattended for

long periods of time (where possible, take things home between trips). • Do park in welllit areas, close to buildings with heavy foot traffic. • Do pay attention to your surroundings when you are placing items in your vehicle (make sure you are not being observed). • Do use a steeringwheel lock. • Do install an immobilizer or an alarm system. • If you do carry a purse, do not leave it unattended in your cart or turn your back on it. • Do not think “it won’t happen to me.” For more information, and to join the Community Safety Team, call 250-8283818 or go online to www.kamloops.ca/ communitysafety/ safefortheseason.

Bleed and feed for very good causes The Canadian Blood Services’ annual Bleed and Feed program is back for the third year in a row, with the goal of facilitating14,000 blood donations between Dec. 1 and Jan. 2 and having blood donors bring in non-perishable food items for local food banks. The next clinics in Kamloops will take place at the Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way, on Tuesday, Dec. 11 (noon to 7 p.m.) and Wednesday, Dec. 12 (10 a.m. to 3 p.m.). Residents can book a donation appointment by going online to blood.ca or by calling 1-888-2-DONATE.

Help the Mounties Stuff the Cruiser Kamloops Mounties are putting out the call for donations in preparation for the annual Stuff the Cruiser event, which

Celebrate a Life at Sahali Mall

will take place outside two Sahali businesses. Organizers are hoping people will drop off new clothing, blankets and toys, as well as nonperishable food items. Specifically, they’re looking for clothes for kids from newborn to 14 years, baby blankets, newborn, toddler and teen toys and grooming products for teenaged boys, in addition to food donations. On Saturday, Dec. 15, Stuff the Cruiser will be set up outside Walmart on Hillside Drive between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and outside Toys R Us on Notre Dame Drive between noon and 4 p.m. All donations go to Christmas Amalgamated, which expects to hand out some 2,000 hampers this year.

The Kamloops Hospice Association’s annual Celebrate A Life fundraiser is underway at Sahali Mall. Celebrate A Life is a way for Kamloops residents to remember deceased relatives

and friends during the holidays, while raising awareness and funding for the ongoing operations of the Kamloops Hospice Association. The event runs to Dec. 21, with visitors invited to decorate the Christmas tree with a memory card and a light.

Each token represents a loved one that has passed and whom their friends and family would like to remember. There will also be an arts and crafts fair, with items created by volunteers at the hospice and community. The annual Christmas raffle has a first prize of

a queen-size handmade quilt by the Cotton Pickers and a second prize of a handmade wooden cradle, complete with full layette. All proceeds from the sale will go toward the ongoing operation of the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.

H much of what you give How will w end up as garbage? In December alone, residents of Kamloops will generate over 7,000,000 kgs of garbage. The best way to reduce our garbage this holiday season is not to create it in the first place. Use reusable gift bags or wrap, look for items with little to no packaging, or consider giving experiences instead. And always be sure to recycle your Christmas waste.

Major-League ref By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

D

AVID BECKHAM is one of the best soccer players in the world. To Darren Clark, a 37-year-old assistant referee from Kamloops, the English footballing superstar was just No. 23 in white at the MLS Cup on Saturday, Dec. 1. “If somebody asks you, ‘How was that game from a fan’s perspective?’ and you can answer that question, you probably haven’t been concentrating,” said Clark, who patrolled the sidelines when the Los Angeles Galaxy downed the Houston Dynamo 3-1 at the Home Depot Centre in Carson, Calf. The entire on-field officiating group at the championship final was Canadian — a Major League Soccer first. Daniel Belleau of Quebec was the game’s other assistant referee, while Silviu Petrescu of Ontario was the match referee. “There’s that extra pressure,” said Clark, who found out minutes before the game it would be televised in 157 countries. “They’re looking at us and saying, ‘OK, we’ve decided to give you this game, now it’s up to you guys to perform.’ “We’re performing for ourselves, but also for the possibility of Canadians being appointed to a game like that in the future.” Most of the final’s critical decisions — including a pair of disallowed Robbie Keane goals and the two penalty kicks awarded — were not made by Clark. “They were made at

the other end,” he said. “It turned out to be a very clean game for our team. The new guy in charge of our referee organization called PRO [Professional Referee Organization] is Peter Walton. “He came to the room afterward and said, ‘That was an outstanding performance from all of you.’” Clark started refereeing in Kamloops when he was in junior-high school. He got serious about officiating in 1999, a year before he moved to Victoria for university. It was on Vancouver Island where he began moving up the refereeing ranks, earning praise for his work on the sidelines in a variety of different leagues and divisions. In 2006, Clark decided to take the assistantrefereeing path, feeling he was better suited to be a linesman than a referee. The Canadian Soccer Association nominated Clark to the FIFA list of international officials in 2007 and, by 2008, he was a FIFA-certified assistant referee. Clark said the Cup final — Beckham’s last MLS match — likely tops the list of highprofile games he has officiated. In 2010, Clark was on the pitch for a friendly between Mexico and New Zealand. The international was played in front of 90,500 fans at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, Calif. A year later, he worked a game between Costa Rica, the home side, and Spain. “There was basically the entire Spain team on the field that had won the World Cup in 2010,” said Clark, a teacher at Logan Lake secondary.

Clark, who started working MLS games in 2008, did 13 matches last season, including two playoff games and seven tilts featuring the Vancouver Whitecaps. An assistant referee of his calibre in MLS is paid $720 per game. Travel and accommodation costs are also taken care of and a per diem is provided. Clark’s Logan Lake students are aware of his activities away from school and occasionally find photos of their teacher online. The Kamloops High School graduate posed for a picture at the Cup final alongside movie star Gerard Butler and Galaxy captain Landon Donovan, among others. Clark might see that one pop up in class in the near future. “The ultimate goal is working a World Cup final or a FIFA tournament, but you need a lot of luck and a lot of people advocating for you,” Clark said. Working high-profile matches is good for the resumé, no doubt, but that alone is not enough to earn the right to referee the world’s most prestigious tournaments. “You also have to have a game that presents you with difficult decisions to get correct,” said Clark, president of the Kamloops Soccer Referees’ Association during the 2006-2007 campaign. “You could have a game with no mistakes but, if there wasn’t a lot in it for you in terms of really, really difficult decisions, it’s hard to separate yourself from the rest.” Perhaps Clark is just a few controversial calls away from reaching his goal. Stay tuned.

Darren Clark of Kamloops watches closely as David Beckham bursts up the sideline during an exhibition match between the Los Angeles Galaxy and Vancouver Whitecaps at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton in 2008. Clark, an assistant referee, again patrolled the sidelines in a game featuring the English icon — the Major League Soccer Cup on Saturday, Dec. 1. Walter Tychnowicz photo

Big deal for big D-man, Edmundson By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s a trade that screams, “We want to win now!” The Kamloops Blazers acquired 19-yearold defenceman Joel Edmundson from the Moose Jaw Warriors in exchange for Tyler Bell, 18, and Jayden Halbgewachs, 15, the Blazers’ first-round pick in the 2012 WHL bantam draft. The teams also exchanged draft picks, with the Blazers giving up a first-round selection in 2015 in return for a fourth-rounder in the same draft. “We feel like we have as good a chance as anybody to have success this year,” Blazer GM Craig Bonner told KTW. “When we found out [injured Columbus Blue Jackets’ blue-liner Austin Madaisky] wasn’t coming back, we knew we needed to add a defenceman. “We felt Joel was the best guy available in the market and we went after him. “He’s a big, tough, physical defenceman who plays both sides of

the puck really good.” Edmundson was drafted by the St. Louis Blues in the second round of the 2011 NHL draft. The 6-foot-4, 208pound rearguard has three goals, nine points and 75 penalty minutes this season, including one goal and five sin-bin minutes in two games with the Blazers. He was minus-11 after 31 games with the Warriors, who are tied for second in the East Division with a 12-14-34 record. Kamloops had to give up a lot to get what it wanted. Halbgewachs registered 55 goals and 89 points in 24 games with the Prairie Storm of the Saskatchewan Bantam AA Hockey League before the Blue and Orange drafted him 19th overall earlier this year.

“You never want to give up your firstround pick, but with the emergence of Jesse Shynkaruk [Saskatoon Contacts, Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League], Mitchell Lipon [Regina Pat Canadians, SMHL], JC’s younger brother, and Tyson McLellan [under-16 San Jose], we felt we have enough undersize forwards that could come in and play,” Bonner said. “Did we want to move Halbgewachs? No, but that was the price we had to pay to get the deal done.” In Bell, the Blazers traded away one of their brightest young defencemen. He was the piece of the puzzle other teams could not offer Moose Jaw, Bonner said. “Moving Bell is probably what enabled us to get the deal done.” On Oct. 31, the Vancouver Giants traded defenceman David Musil, 19, to the Edmonton Oil Kings in exchange for 17-yearold blueliner Mason Geertsen and a 2013 first-round bantam selection. “The price was set in

the Musil deal,” Bonner said. “And, bringing in another D-man, we were going to have to move a defenceman out.” The Blazers have 24 players on their roster — two goaltenders, eight defencemen and 14 forwards. Kamloops (24-7-1-2) sits tied with the Portland Winterhawks (25-5-1-0) atop the WHL standings. The Calgary Hitmen are hosting the Blazers tonight (Dec. 11) at the Saddledome.

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES

darts By D. Mark Crown SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Garry Hogg loves playing darts and is looking forward to competing in the 2013 B.C. Seniors Games in Kamloops. “You get to see a lot of people, you get to see a lot of places and you meet a lot of really nice people that run the events,” he said. “I like the camaraderie and the competition; it is just a good event.” The darts competition at the Games will feature men’s and women’s singles and doubles. There will also be a mixed doubles event and a team event made up of four players. In darts, each player starts the game with a set number of points —Games’ competitors start at 501. The object of the game is to be the first player to get to zero. This is done by throwing darts at different areas on the board. The bull’s-eye, for example, is worth 50 points.

On each turn, a player throws three darts. If a player was to hit three bull’seyes, she would count 150 points off of her score on that turn. The two players alternate turn’s until one player reaches the exact score of zero. Competing in a large number of matches at B.C. Seniors Games can be draining, which is why, Hogg said, one must work hard to keep focused. “You can get very tired. A lot of people don’t think you do” he said. “It can get demanding. Some people can bow under the pressure, but I don’t.” Hogg is also quick to give credit to the accomplishments of others. “My wife’s done quite well in it; she’s got two gold medals, a bronze and a silver. I have only managed to get a bronze.” To find out more about playing darts in Kamloops, or for more information about competing in the darts event at the B.C. Seniors Games, contact Hogg at 250-578-7501.

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 continues its biweekly feature page, with each page focusing on one of the Games’ events.

Willick gets the ‘C’ By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Blazers finally have a captain — albeit an injured one. Dylan Willick — who will likely be out of the lineup recovering from a broken ankle until the new year — was named captain in a team meeting before practice on Wednesday, Dec. 5. “It’s an honour for me and it’s something I don’t take lightly,” Willick said. “I want to do the best I can with the role.” Blazer head coach Guy Charron talked about the decision in a club press release. “Dylan represents what a captain is by his on-ice work ethic and off-ice maturity. “He is surrounded by three strong individu-

als who have only been Blazers and understand the Blazer way.” Charron is referring to Colin Smith, Tyler Hansen and Brendan Ranford, the Blazer alternate captains. Kamloops was waiting to find out the fate of Columbus Blue Jacket D-man Austin Madaisky before naming a captain. A team vote was taken last week, when it became clear Madaisky — who recently underwent wrist surgery — won’t play again until at least March. “With the kind of guys we have in the dressing room, it really could have gone to anybody,” Willick said. The 20-year-old Prince George product said he doesn’t plan on making any drastic changes to how he goes about his business. “I’ve seen people in

stops customers pain within days! “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away.“ She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone - as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.”

By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops through the aging process. With joint infl ammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-infl ammatory drugs that cause

Best Superfood with multiple health 2010 Bes t in Canada Award

more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent antiinflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-infl ammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function. To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take

for granted, until it’s gone! Ian adds, “I often recommend that LeafSource be taken with other natural joint products in order to help them work better and provide even faster relief. One of the things I hear most often from people who have tried LeafSource is they just plain feel better, have more energy and less pain. We’re so confi dent, we guarantee LeafSource 100%! That alone should be enough to try this incredible product.”

Karla Pearce The Creative EDGE

ITH THE KIDS AT HOME during the holidays, it’s great to spend some quality creative time together in the kitchen that doesn’t involve calories. Every year, I make decorations for our tree and, this year, we discovered a simple recipe to make beautiful crystal snowflakes over night. You will need: • White pipe cleaners; • An empty ice-cream pail or wide-mouth jar; • Borax (found at grocery stores in the

laundry-soap section); • Boiling water; • Thread or string; • A small stick or pencil; • Food colouring (optional). Start by twisting the pipe cleaner together in different ways. I made a star by folding the pipe cleaner into two triangles and weaving them together. You can also twist three pipe cleaners together to make a six-point star. I created the flower by modifying the sixpoint star into petals.

Ginger Pearce displays some of the snowflake ornaments she and her mother, KTW art columnist Karla Pearce, have been making for their Christmas Tree. A few simple steps, some easy-to-find ingredients and supplies, and the crystallized flakes are ready to hang. Karla Peace photos XSee MOLECULES B1

Molecules move, crystals are created

XFrom B1

The combinations are endless. Through trial and error, I have discovered the smaller snowflakes work better than the large ones. Next, boil water on the stove in a big pot. Slowly add the Borax to the boiling water on the stove and stir. I gradually poured in half a box and the mixture was very saturated. Carefully spoon (I used a ladle) or pour the Borax mixture into your bucket or jar. At this point, you can add food colouring to the mixture if you want to colour your snowflake. Tie a thread joining your snowflake to your stick or pencil. The stick must be

long enough to go across your bucket or jar. Submerge and suspend your snowflake in the bucket. It is important your snowflake does not touch the sides or bottom of the container, as

it will stick to it. Set the bucket in a safe place and let it cool overnight. Borax is a solid with flat sides and a symmetrical shape because its molecules are arranged in a unique, repeating

pattern. This is why it can become a crystal. The hot water will hold more Borax crystals than cold water. That’s because heated-water molecules move farther apart, making room for more of the crystals to dissolve. When no more of the solution can be dissolved, you have reached saturation. As this solution cools, the water molecules move closer together again. This is when beautiful crystals begin to form, building on each other as the water evaporates. The next morning, you can remove your and check them out. They are ready to hang in your window on or your tree!

Blues guitarist mourned

s l a i c e Sp SPECIAL PRICES AVAILABLE

Dec. 12 - Dec. 17

The garlic farm Tony Robertson called home will be the site of a memorial gathering for the longtime Kamloops guitarist on the Victoria Day long weekend in May. Robertson, 62, died in Vancouver on Friday, Dec. 7, while being treated for a blood disease. Robertson was one of the driving forces behind the Blues Underground Network that called the Blue Grotto home for years. He worked alongside Keith Guthrie at The Yale in Vancouver and played for years with Long John Baldry. Local music fans would recognize Robertson from his band The Vaqueros, but he could also be TONY ROBERTSON seen on stage with just about any other band in the city. Robertson recently recorded on a new CD project with the Henry Small Band, even as his health condition worsened. Rod Duncan was a longtime friend of Robertson, meeting him while the two were in high school and bonding over their shared love of music. Duncan, in fact, said he once fired Robertson from a band when his friend wanted to be lead singer. “I said ‘Look, man, your voice just isn’t strong enough to sing lead. You need to play that guitar’,” Duncan said. “We were as close as brothers,” he said. “We’ve been close forever. When I got the message at 7:40 — ‘He’s gone’ — I sat there and wanted to text someone, but couldn’t see through the tears.” The Fan Club in Vancouver will hold a memorial benefit on Thursday, Dec. 27, at 6 p.m., but local musicians plan to celebrate their friend on the May long weekend.

VW Beetle Convertible makes its bow

W

HAT BETTER PLACE TO STAGE THE WORLD PREMIERE OF THE 2013 VW BEETLE CONVERTIBLE THAN IN THE DROP-TOP CAPITAL OF THE WORLD? One of the highlights of this year’s LA Auto Show was the new Beetle Convertible with selected international autojournalists getting behind the wheel the day after the show and driving one of the great roads on the planet — the Pacific Coast Highway through Santa Monica, Malibu and Zuma Beach. It has always JIM ROBINSON amazed me cars in L.A. never First seem to rot. DRIVE Finding vintage Bugs in daily use over the decades by the same owner is normal. Rust, despite the onshore winds from the Pacific Ocean, is never a problem. With a year-round climate more like the Mediterranean, you learn quickly La-La Land is actually a way of life not just an expression. In Canada, we will start to get this taste of L.A. when the first Convertibles start arriving this month as 2013 models. At first there will be one engine, a gasoline 2.5-litre inline DOHC five-cylinder producing 170 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque driving the front wheels through a six-speed automatic transmission. There is no manual. By the summer, we will start getting a

2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder, again with the automatic and, at that time, both engine variants will start being badged as 2014 models. In the U.S. and most other countries, there will also be a direct injection turbo diesel TDI. If Canada sees a demand for this third model, officials will make a decision to import it from the plant in Mexico, where

all North American Beetles are built. While it shares the same platform and drive train, the convertible is more than a coupe with the roof lopped off. Extensive reinforcing and use of highstrength steel is used making the chassis 18 per cent stiffer than the previous model. In a rollover, the frame around the windshield acts as a rollover bar and is strong enough to support the car even upside down. In that event, there are two pyrotechnic roll bars behind the backseat that deploy in an emergency for protection of passengers in the backseat. Cargo volume remains the same at 70 litres, while the 50/50-split back seat folds for additional storage. Like the sedan, the dashboard of the convertible has body-colour inserts and that colour coordination continues throughout the cabin. On the higher of the two trim levels, there is a technology package that includes a dash insert colour to match a Fender guitar in brown with a yellowish swath along the centerline. It reflects the partnership with VW that sees Fender supplying the audio system. The reason why cargo volume is the same as the sedan is the convertible top was designed not to intrude into the trunk space.

Volkswagen Beetle Convertible 2013 at a glance Body style: Four-seat convertible. Drive method: Front-engine, frontwheel-drive. Engine: 2.5-litre inline DOHC fivecylinder (170 hp, 177 lb/ft). Fuel economy: (Regular) 9.9/7.3L/100 km city/highway. Cargo capacity: 70 litres. Tow rating: Not recommended. Price: Comfortline $27,775; Highline $31,740. It goes up in about 11 seconds and down in a claimed 9.5 seconds. I got plenty of time to test the top as it rained cats and dogs the day I drove it in and around Malibu. So much for sunny California! I would be driving along the Pacific Coast Highway looking for a beach for a photo-op. Every once and a while, there was a let-up in the rain, so I would hit the beach, drop the top and, just as I started to aim the camera, down the rain came in again. XSee THIS B14

This Beetle’s rally meant to go cruising XFrom B13

It’s a good thing the top goes up and down at speeds up to 50 km/h because I had to do it more than once. With the top up, it’s quite warm and cozy with Sirius/XM on the 1960s channel for any possible Beach Boys or Jan and Dean songs. With the top down, there was a large, foldable wind blocker that did the trick. There was some buffeting and road noise at highway speeds but the radio sound quality was hardly affected. A nice touch is a tonneau cover for the top that slips on to give it a 1960s Beetle Convertible look. The five-cylinder engine is a proven quantity and always pulls strongly and that’s good because the Convertible weighs

in at 1,454 kilograms (3,206 pounds). At times riding in the front passenger seat, I was struck with a width of my side of the cabin. I always like to ride the seat all the way to the rear but that resulted in the door pull resting against my kneecap.

Of course, moving up a notch eliminated it, but I still would have preferred fully back. Besides the harder steels and rollover bars, the convertible is loaded with safety features, starting with Volkswagen’s intelligent crash response system (ICRS), which unlocks the doors, turns on the hazard lights and shuts down the fuel system in certain types of collisions. Suspension is coil-over-struts at the front and independent links at the rear for a smooth ride. While it does handle well, this car was meant for cruising, not the racetrack. While Malibu has some of the most challenging canyon roads in the road, I didn’t try them, preferring to drive the car in the environment it was made for — along a coastal highway.

Pricing starts at $27,775 for the Comfortline trim model and $31,740 for the Highline. For Canada, the base Trendline is not being imported. On hand at the press introduction were other trim levels, the most fun of which were the “generational� models. These took design cues such as paint combinations and wheels for the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. The coffee-brown 1970s model with the retro full-chrome wheels looking like wheel covers was my favourite. VW Canada says it has no plans to import these but, if the demand is there — as there is for the diesel as well — we may see them here someday. Until then, I’ll just keep California Dreamin’.

Volt tops satisfaction survey again in Consumer Reports study Would you get the same vehicle if you had to do it all over again? That’s the single, revealing question the Consumer Reports National Research Centre asked subscribers in its annual ownersatisfaction survey. And, the answer for Chevrolet Volt owners was a resounding “yes.”

Ninety-two per cent of respondents who own the Volt said they would definitely buy it again, earning the car the distinction of being the top-scoring model in the Consumer Reports survey for the second year in a row. “The Volt’s twoyear reign at the top of our satisfaction survey

points to the continuing trend of owners’ enthusiasm for cars that are fuel-efficient cars, especially as we see more and more hybrid and electric models hitting the market,” said Rik Paul, Consumer Reports’ auto editor. In addition to the Volt, other fuel-efficient models that scored

among the best were the Toyota Camry Hybrid, Prius and Prius C, and Nissan Leaf. The Chevrolet Corvette, Porsche 911, the V8 Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang topped the sporty car category, while the Audi A7, Lexus GS and Audi A6 were the leading

luxury cars. On the other end of the spectrum, the redesigned subcompact Nissan Versa Sedan came in with the lowest score in the survey, with fewer than half its owners saying they would

definitely buy it again. Other low scorers include the V6 versions of the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups and the Nissan Armada, Suzuki SX4 and Mitsubishi Outlander SUVs.

One of the features that didn’t seem to have a strong effect on owner satisfaction was brand nationality. The 44 top-rated models include 16 American, 14 Asian and 14 European vehicles.

Advancing the Micro Commuter Concept that was first introduced at the Tokyo Motor Show 2011, this prototype model developed a cabin space to seat one driver and two children in the micro-sized body.

Japan names Mazda car of the year At the recent Japan Car of the Year awards ceremony, Mazda’s new CX-5 posted 363 votes to win the country’s coveted Car of the Year prize. Surprisingly, the expected close battle between this year’s two most highly anticipated cars — Mazda’s CX-5 and the Toyota GT86/Subaru BRZ — did not happen as the SUV from Hiroshima pulled away from the jointly developed GT86/ BRZ sports car to triumph by 45 votes. While the Toyota-Subaru sports car picked up 318 votes for its thrilling rear-wheel drive handling, high-revving boxer engine and reasonable price, it was the Mazda CX-5’s revolutionary Skyactiv

technology, great handling and economical clean-diesel engine that most impressed the 60 jurors. In accepting the Japan trophy, Kiyoshy Fujiwara, Mazda’s “Godfather” of Skyactiv technology, said: “It was a long road. In the early days of Skyactiv development, I had a lot of opposition from colleagues suggesting this technology was not the answer. “But, we stayed true to our goals and, here we are today, fully recognized by the COTY jurors.” The BMW 3-Series — with 282 votes — snatched the Import Car of the Year award away from a strong-finishing Range Rover Evoque, polling 218 votes.

TRU’s Paterson among Top 100 women in Canada Marking a decade of celebrating female leaders, the Women’s Executive Network has included Dr. Barbara Paterson, dean of Thompson Rivers University’s TRU School of Nursing, among its Canada’s Most Powerful Women: Top 100 Award. Each year, the

awards celebrate the professional achievements of women across the country in the private, public and not-forprofit sectors. “I am very pleased to be recognized in this way, but I am very aware that my achievements are due in no small way to the many people who have

encouraged and supported me throughout my career,” Paterson said. “I have been a very fortunate person in the family, friends, colleagues and students who have believed in me.” Paterson joins 653 women who have received the Top 100 Award in the last decade, an award that recognizes the highestachieving female lead-

ers in the private, public and not-for-profit sectors in Canada. Winners are selected based on their strategic vision and leadership, their organization’s financial performance and their commitment to their communities. “Being recognized for her outstanding leadership, mentorship of students and colleagues, as well as her innovative research, is

a wonderful and highly deserved achievement for Dr. Paterson” said Ulrich Scheck, TRU’s vice-president academic and provost. “Her contributions to significant advances in the education of nurses across Canada and beyond, and to the wellbeing of all Canadians, are well known and should be celebrated. “We at TRU are all very proud of Barbara.”

Paterson is a leading researcher in chronic illness. The complete list of the Women’s Executive Network 2012 Top 100 Award winners can be found online at top100women.ca. Paterson and her fellow recipients were honoured on Dec. 5 at the Sheraton Centre Toronto, where they led the Women’s Executive Network afternoon lead-

ership summit. Award winners were then celebrated at the Top 100 Awards 10th annual gala dinner, at which featured Laureen Harper, wife of the prime minister, presenting the Public Sector Leaders Award category, and speeches from Jeanne Beker, entrepreneur and TV personality, and Bonnie Brooks, Hudson’s Bay Company president and CEO.

A November to remember on forecast front It was a November to remember weather-wise for the Tournament Capital. Higher-than-average temperatures and just one dump of snow likely saved some wear and tear on Kamloopsians’ winter coats. According to Environment Canada, the average daily high in Kamloops last month was 7.1 C — just about two degrees above normal. Even the average daily low stayed above the freezing mark, just under

GREGORY (GREG) FRESNOY PALMER

1 C, compared to the normal -1.7 C. The warmest day was Nov. 5, when the mercury soared to 16.8 C. Remembrance Day saw the coldest temperatures of the month, with overnight lows dipping to -9 C. Kamloops saw 11.4 millimetres of rain in November, shy of the 13.7-millimetre norm. As for the white stuff, just 9.6 centimetres fell last month — nearly all of it in one day, on Nov. 12.

DORIS MILLER

May 28,1947 ~ November 15, 2012 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of a beloved husband, step-father, grandfather and best friend, Greg Palmer. Greg passed away peacefully in Kamloops, BC after a short battle with cancer. Greg is survived by his wife of 17years, Lynne; step-children Barry (Shauna) Fewster and Georgia Oldfield; grandchildren Jayden, Candace Oldfield, Tanner Lind and Brooklyn Fewster, all residing in Nanaimo, BC; mother-in-law Yvonne Smith, sisters-in-law Gail (Frank) Murray-Rowe, Lesley (Peter) Dawe, all of Parksville, BC and Sue Smith of Abbotsford, BC; nephew Kevin Murray of Kamloops, BC; nieces Andrea (Eric) Niholas and Christian Thomson of Ladner, BC, Ronda (Rob) Bailey and Joe Mills of Mission, BC, and Robyn (Karrie) and Gavin Donnelly of Abbotsford, BC. Greg spent his formative years in the eastern part of Canada, moving to British Columbia in 1969, where he worked at Nanaimo Golf Course and in 1971 played on the Canadian Professional Golf tour. Greg then joined George Weston Industries in October of 1971, where he worked until his death in November, 2012. We wish to thank all the nurses and support staff of 6-South at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops for all the care, support, warmth, friendliness, and the way they made us feel like family. At no time did they make us feel that anything we needed or requested was too much. There are no words to express how much all of you will be remembered in my heart for all that you did for Greg and I. To Dr. Hanks and Carrie, you are the best. Thank you is not adequate for the above and beyond care, support and help that both Dr. Hanks and Carrie gave both Greg and me through this tough and short battle. You are both in my heart forever. To all the friends, both on and off the links, thank you for your support and help. Greg requested no funeral; however, a Celebration of Life will be held on December 16, 2012, from 1 pm to 3 pm at the Kamloops Golf & Country Club, 3125 Tranquille Road, out past the airport. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation or the Canadian Cancer Society for cancer research.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Doris Miller. She passed away peacefully on December 5, 2012 at the age of 84 surrounded by her family. Doris is lovingly remembered by her daughter Diane Miller, son Glen Miller, daughter in-law Tracey Miller and brother AlÀe McKnight, as well as many other relatives and friends. Doris is predeceased by her loving husband Tom. They were married in April 1951 and spent the Àrst few years living in various small communities in B.C. Doris and Tom made Kamloops their home in 1964. Earlier in her life, Doris taught at George Hilliard School and worked as a realtor. She was active with the Daughters of the Nile and St. Paul’s Church and stayed busy playing bridge. She and Tom purchased and developed a property on Shuswap Lake and this became a favourite place for her to spend time with her family. Please join us in celebrating Doris’ life at St. Paul’s Cathedral, 360 Nicola St. on Saturday December 15 at 11am. In lieu of Áowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.

Kamloops usually records about 12.2 centimetres of snow in November. The above-normal temperatures carried into December, but dropped recently, bringing snow to Kamloops this past weekend. According to the Weather Network’s winter outlook, B.C. will see a return to normal temperatures and precipitation lasting through December, January and February.

A Vanished Friend Around the corner I have a friend In this great city that has no end; Yet days go by, and weeks rush on, And before I know it a year has gone, And I never see my old friend’s face, For life is a swift and terrible race. He knows I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell, And he rang mine. We were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men, Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired with trying to make a name. “Tomorrow, I will call on Jim, Just to show that I am thinking of him.” But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And the distance between us grows and grows, Around the corner, yet miles away “Here’s a telegram, sir,” “Jim died today!” And that’s what we get, and deserve in the end, Around the corner a vanished friend!
