Did you see CJ Fowler on Dec. 5? Kamloops RCMP have released a surveillance photo of CJ Fowler, the 16-year-old girl was slain on Dec. 5. Police say the image of Fowler was taken before she left Royal Inland Hospital at 2:54 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 5. Her body was found near the end of Grandview Terrace, west of the hospital, at approximately 11:30 a.m. that same day. Based on evidence found in the investigation, police believe Fowler was murdered before dawn that same day. On that day, Fowler was wearing blue jeans, a bubble-gum pink tank top and a black and grey plaid jacket covered by a larger medium green jacket. She stood five-foot-three and weighed about 100 pounds. She had a slim build with straight black hair

The image on the right is one of Fowler captured by a video-surveillance system at Royal Inland Hospital hours before she was murdered on Wednesday, Dec. 5. The photos above are of family members taking part in a ceremony on Thursday, Dec. 13, in the area where Fowler’s body was found.

that extended slightly below her shoulders and brown eyes. On Thursday, Dec. 13, Fowler’s parents came to Kamloops, where they met with major-crime investigators and later visited the site where her body was discovered. They took part in a private prayer ceremony with family members, close friends, a spiritual counsellor, Tk’emlups Indian Band Chief Shane Gottfriedson and a representative of the Assembly of First Nations. Mounties want to hear from anyone who may have seen Fowler between the Royal Inland Hospital and where her body was found in the ravine at the end of Grandview Terrace. Anyone with information is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 or Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Council nixes garbage cash DEALS THE By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Organizers of a local garbage-busting event will have to look elsewhere for support after Kamloops city council turned down their $8,000 funding request. James Gordon and Marcia Dick were looking for sponsorship for their Zero Waste Challenge, which would allow them to run the event as paid co-ordinators rather than volunteers. The bulk of the funds — $6,250 — would have gone to wages, with $2,000 earmarked for advertising and $250 set aside for for the event. First held in 2011, the Zero Waste Challenge pitted six households against each other in a trash-reduction competition. For the first two weeks of the month, participants weighed their garbage to establish how much solid waste they were generating per week. Gordon and Dick then went to each home to help set up composting systems and offer tips on waste reduction.

During the following two weeks, contestants worked to put those tips into action. The first challenge was won by the van Vliet family of Rayleigh, who managed to reduce the weight of their household trash to that of an apple, despite having five young children. Gordon said goals for the next challenge, which would run in October 2013, are to bring more households on board and keep participants from dropping out. The initial challenge suffered from a high attrition rate, with nearly two-thirds of the competitors quitting because weighing garbage was “a hassle,” Gordon said. Coun. Arjun Singh lauded the campaign, noting the city’s goal to reduce the amount of trash headed to the landfill by 40 per cent by 2015. “I think this is worth trying and, to showcase it from not the city, but from a community-grassroots perspective, would be good,” he said. However, Coun. Nancy Bepple said the city typically hasn’t been the sole supporter of other environmental cam-

paigns, such as Bike to Work Week, and she would rather offer a smaller amount of support once Gordon and Dick have other community groups on board as sponsors. “At the moment, two individuals are asking us to pay for their project and, when other groups have come forward, even when it’s an individual that’s spearheading it, they’ve come with other groups supporting it,” she said. Coun. Nelly Dever expressed concern Dick and Gordon hadn’t presented a plan for how they would attract more participants and weren’t sure how many households they would be able to involve. “I listen to this proposal and the first thing that comes to mind for me is, are we or are we not an open-door bank?” she said. Coun. Donovan Cavers’ suggestion the city only pay for Gordon and Dick’s wages, with any other funding coming through in-kind donations, was rejected by council, with only councillors Singh, Cavers and Ken Christian voting to have the city fund the challenge.

School district reviews security By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops-Thompson school district is reviewing its security protocols in the wake of last week’s mass shooting at an elementary school in Connecticut. Superintendent Terry Sullivan has told all schools to lock all but the main doors during the day. “We’ve always had a policy of having all visitors sign in at the main office,” he said, noting that was sometimes tough to enforce, especially at some of the larger high schools. “So, not all the doors are locked, but the main doors are the only ones that will remain open during the day.” On Friday, Dec. 14, 27 people were killed in Newtown, Conn. Of those, 20 were young students at Sandy Hook Elementary.

The order to lock up Kamloopsarea schools came after Sullivan issued two statements to parents — one by phone, the other in the form of a letter sent home with students — about the shooting rampage. The statements, delivered the day of the shooting, was intended to let parents know school staff members are meeting to help develop a strategy to avoid any potential emotional trauma in students. To that end, Sullivan said, he encouraged parents to “protect children from disturbing media reports” about the shooting. He said he received multiple phone calls from parents after the statements, thanking him for re-assuring them. Sullivan said the security review will continue. “We’re looking at how we can make our schools more secure.”

Despite Cavers’ concerns, council will spend By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Spread out the pain or pay it now? That was the debate that arose at city hall this week as Kamloops council prepared to round out the year by borrowing $8.7 million for roadworks, wastewater mains and streetlights. At its final meeting of 2012, on Tuesday, Dec. 18, council agreed to start an alternative-approval process to borrow $2.4 million for lighting upgrades on Tranquille Road. It also agreed to borrow $2.9 million to twin a force main between the Domtar pulp mill and Mission Flats road and another $3.3 million to widen Highland Drive. However, the new debt load had Coun. Donovan Cavers alarmed and calling for the city to change its strategy when funding expensive capital projects. “I’m not comfortable with our current

philosophy with debt,” Cavers said. “To me, it’s kicking things down the road and it’s not a good way to operate.” Instead, Cavers said, the city should look at saving for its big-ticket projects, only building when most of the costs can be covered upfront. He proposed a workshop in 2013 to examine the idea in more detail. “I’m definitely not suggesting we throw the entire budget at any given capital item,” he said. “It would obviously be a very long, slow change of philosophy where we build up surpluses.” Other councillors, however, remain comfortable with the city’s current strategy, with the majority voting against Cavers’ proposed strategy session. “I don’t want to tax people today for big-ticket items,” Coun. Tina Lange said. “I want their kids to help pay for it as well.

“For things that last a long time, that’s what we want. “We want future generations to share the pain.” Coun. Pat Wallace doubted citizens would embrace a plan to hike tax rates without any short-term gain. “I don’t know that taxpayers are quite prepared to say, ‘That’s OK. Add $500 a year onto my taxes.’” she said. “We did that in the ’80s. We tried to pay for everything we did. “And, we found out, you can’t do a lot.” Mayor Peter Milobar also rejected the idea. “We would need to jump taxes 10 per cent this year to do these three projects, which is a stretch of road, a sewer main and a strip of lights,” he said. “I don’t know if the citizens in this city would ever build anything again if they were seeing fluctuations like that.”

HIGHLAND DRIVE DEVELOPMENT Drivers entering and leaving Juniper Ridge will get some extra breathing room as a roadwidening project for Highland Drive forges ahead in 2013. The widening will see an extra lane for cars headed south, uphill, into the neighbourhood, as well as construction of a multi-use pathway for pedestrians and cyclists. The project will cost the city more than $5.8 million, with half the cash coming from development-cost charges and half through borrowing. City transportation engineer Chris Darwent said the single northbound downhill lane will be wider than average to accommodate cyclists who could reach speeds of 50 km/h or more. Darwent said the road, which is the main point of entry into the neighbourhood, is already used by 7,000 cars a day, noting Juniper Ridge still has room for around 650 additional homes.

Those suite deals may cost you dearly Kamloopsians who try, and fail, to sneak secondary suites into newly built homes without proper rezoning could face a greater financial hit in the new year. Coun. Pat Wallace plans to bring in a motion that would see those homeowners pay three or four times the usual fee for a rezone. At present, homeowners must pay twice as much for a rezoning application if the city building inspector discovers they’re building an illegal suite in their new home. That was the case for a home at 1258 Copperhead Dr. in Dufferin, which came to council after building inspectors discovered a suite during a final home inspection. “We seem to get more people building large houses and doing this because it’s easier to get permission after the fact,” Wallace said. Once council reconvenes in January after the holiday break, Wallace said she will move to see stiffer financial penalties put in place for homeowners who try to skirt zoning bylaws. “We get some very, very large houses. “Some of the neighbours are quite distressed when they see them going up, and they say they’re all family and then they’re back [at council for rezoning]” she said. Council agreed to move the rezoning for Copperhead Drive to public hearing. In addition to paying extra for that application, the homeowners will also have to pay double for a building permit for the secondary suite.

NOTICE TO ELECTORS OF AN ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS TRANQUILLE ROAD STREET LIGHTING UPGRADE This is the first of two notices to advise electors in the City of Kamloops of the intention to adopt the “Tranquille Road Street Lighting Upgrade Loan Authorization By-law No. 14-1-169”. The purpose of the by-law is to borrow an amount not to exceed $2,400,000 to finance the cost to upgrade the street lighting and signalization along a portion of Tranquille Road that will be repaid over a period not to exceed 15 years. It is estimated that the borrowing will result in a tax increase for the average residential property of $4.18 per year. A copy of By-law No. 14-1-169 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. The project will upgrade the street lighting and signalization along 1.8 km of Tranquille Road from Leigh Road to Sydney Avenue. For project details, please contact Jim McNeely, Streets and Internal Services Manager, at telephone: 250-828-3535 or email: jmcneely@kamloops.ca. The City of Kamloops proposes to borrow the money and upgrade the street lights and signalization along a portion of Tranquille Road unless, by 4:30 pm on January 28, 2013, 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.

LOCAL NEWS

Neighbour wants legal grow-op gone By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Deb Sharkey had lived in her Brocklehurst duplex for about a dozen years when things began to go downhill. On the other side of the duplex, her neighbours, also longtime residents, installed vents in their windows. Soon, a noxious smell was floating through the neighbourhood several days each month — “the most strongest skunk you’ve ever imagined,” Sharkey said. Sharkey, whose former partner was an RCMP officer, knew the signs and called Kamloops Mounties to have the grow-op next door investigated. But, when RCMP reported back, she was told nothing criminal was happening. Sharkey’s neighbours were growing medical marijuana with a licence from Health Canada. A call to the city got the property inspected, but privacy laws kept her from learning what was found. Sharkey went a step further and called the B.C. Safety Authority, which ordered her neighbours to upgrade their wiring. The agency could do nothing about the smell and other concerns. “It’s so bad,” said Sharkey. “We’ve got this lovely back deck and we can’t even go out

and enjoy it because the smell is so strong.” Now, Sharkey is cheering on efforts by the city to get growops like the one next to her out of residential areas. In the new year, city council will hold a public hearing to determine whether to move forward with bylaw changes that would restrict medical marijuana grows to industrial areas. The change would also require would-be growers to obtain a building permit, file a ventilation plan with city staff and meet several other environmental requirements. Because grow-ops on industrial land would already be permitted under new city zoning, they would not require council oversight and approval. Sharkey has been lobbying hard for the change and intends to speak in favour of it at the public hearing. She said residential grows in multi-family units like hers don’t make sense, in part because it’s difficult to keep the grow a secret in such close quarters. “You can’t miss it with the smell in the neighbourhood,” she said. “So, people who are looking for drugs are going to be coming here, down the street, looking for the home, maybe randomly doing breakins to try and find it.” Sharkey is also concerned

mould possibly produced by the grow could be filtering into her connected property. Geoff Shellard, a Coquitlambased mould-remediation contractor who has worked on residential grow-ops, said Sharkey’s worries are well-founded. “[Grow-ops] use a lot of water and you use a lot of heat. And, those things combined create a lot of mould. So. that’s the biggest issue.” Shellard said it doesn’t take long for mould to take hold in an indoor grow-op and issues can arise before any plants are in place. “The problem is, if you just brought everything in day one, you’re bringing in fertilizers and pesticides, so those are hazardous in and of themselves,” he said. “If they’re bringing in a whole bunch of potting soil, you don’t even have to grow any plants for there to be an issue.” Sharkey, whose husband is a paraplegic, said she has invested too much money improving her home’s accessibility to just pick up and move if the issue doesn’t resolve itself. “We’ve got grants we don’t have to pay back as long as we don’t move,” she said. “And, besides that, it’s so apparent they have a licensed grow-op. “Who on earth is going to buy a place right next door?”

In this fight, I definitely do not side with the little guy

N

ORMALLY IN THE week before Christmas, this column would be filled with warm thoughts about all the good things we’ve done in the city in the past year. Comments about all you caring people who have helped out a charity, a school, a child — those little moments that maybe no one notices, but which make our hearts feel warm. ‘Tis the season, after all. However, I’m just not in a festive mood at all these days. In fact, as I write this, not a single present have I bought — although, I must confess, my husband does all the gift shopping and I just have to get him something. Were it not for the youngest, I don’t think the tree would be up, decorated and illuminated every night as the sun goes down. I’ve done no Christmas baking, no decorating — nothing at all. One might call me a Grinch and be pretty close to accurate right now. The reason? A microcosmic speck of evil that has apparently moved into my lungs and taken up residence. This nasty bug moved into town with all his cousins, it appears, because I have yet to find anyone who is not sick right now. Everyone I meet or talk with on the phone has had to put up with the congestion, the coughing, the aching, the never-freaking-ending fatigue this critter packs. You’d think by now, having weathered colds for almost six decades, I’d be immune to it all. It’s the same thing every time, isn’t it? You get the sniffles.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL Then you get that telltale tickling in your throat. You find yourself feeling the sides of your neck as if you really can tell if your nodes are swollen. If you’re like my husband and me, you debate with each other about when you are going to give in and see the doctor, knowing full well that, once you get there — sharing the waiting area with others equally as sniffly and congested — he’ll tell you to rest in bed, drink plenty of fluids and wait it out. The impasse was broken when I gave in first and went, only to be told I had a cold. So, every night for the last couple of weeks, there we have been, sitting in our recliners, hubby huddling under his orange blanket alternately shivering and cooking, me under a red one doing the same, fast-forwarding through commercials in whatever we have recorded on the PVR and trying to figure out ways to get all our shopping done without ever leaving those chairs. It seems like everyone has an idea on how to cure this thing. Cold F/X has been suggested, as has loads of vitamin C, some strange herbal-tea concoction, inhaling steam, going

gluten-free to boost the immune system, leaving bowls of cut onions lying around the house, gargling with salt water (my mother believed in that — even if it worked, I will never do that again), listening to jazz music (apparently, it stimulates something inside your body that fights evil), wearing cold and wet socks, drinking coconut milk, eating chocolate (might give that one a try) and, my personal favourite, staying home and resting in bed. Right — with Christmas just days away and nothing done. There’s some solace in knowing I’m not alone. A quick Google search of statistics for the common cold in Canada revealed this data. One-third of Canadian adults will have a sore throat, cold or flu in any given month. Women are more likely than men to get sick, but we’re also more likely to treat the illness and go to the doctor. Twenty per cent of Canadian adults ignore their symptoms altogether — how I envy that ability. Cough and cold remedies are the second-most commonly used medications in Canada and we apparently spend, collectively, more than $300 million annually on them. My favourite part of this particular link is the following: Despite spending that enormous amount, we’re buying medicines that, “for the most part, neither ameliorate symptoms nor change the course of the illnesses.” Normally, I root for the little guy. Right now, I’d like him to just move on. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The B.C. Liberal government has been taking heat — (rightly so) for wasting $15 million of your tax dollars on a variety of ads that amount to little more than pre-election boasting. You’ve seen them. They serve only to proclaim all the wonderful things the B.C. Liberals have done. They are partisan and wasteful and offer fodder for debate on just how much real good that $15 million could have done in various areas of the province. In Kamloops yesterday (Dec. 19), we witnessed another PR spin that should make taxpayers take note of yet more waste of their precious dollars. Education Minister Don McRae, Jobs Minister Pat Bell and Environment Minister Terry Lake were at NorKam secondary (which sits in Lake’s Kamloops-North Thompson riding) to announce in person exactly what was announced and reported on back on Oct. 4. That would be Victoria’s decision to fund $6.3 million of the $7.4-million trades and technology centre at the school, all the details of which were reported two-and-ahalf-months ago by KTW and other Kamloops media outlets. Yesterday’s re-announcement offered nothing new, save for a hazy timeline concerning construction, which only adds fuel to the argument by many that this government is in full election-campaign mode, doing a poor job at masking publicrelations propaganda as real news. KTW attended yesterday’s reannouncement as the press release announcing the event did not note it was indeed a re-announcement. It soon became apparent the NorKam press conference was simply a chance for politicians to engage in silly photo-ops with tools as they tried to milk more ink from a stale announcement. We know how much the blatant ad-propaganda campaign is costing us. We wonder how many tax dollars it cost to arrange to have the education and jobs ministers travel with his ample staff to Kamloops to announce something that was announced quite fully nearly a quarter-year ago.

Kamloops MP learns fine art of wagging the dog Editor: Kudos to KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod, who recently voted against Bill C-398. Kudos not for her vote that helped prevent Canada’s generic-drug manufacturers from providing inexpensive generic medicines to Africans suffering from AIDS and other curable diseases, but for learning the art of “wagging the dog” and finally learning her party’s policies. McLeod’s Dec. 6 response (‘MP defends her government’s stance on Bill C-398’)

BERT GATIEN 250-319-0227 1.888.374-3022 bgatien@telus.net

to Michael Crawford’s letter of Dec. 4 (‘MP McLeod sides with Big Pharma’) was filled with typical political double-talk addressing everything good the Conservative government of Stephen Harper is doing in developing countries. But, McLeod avoided Crawford’s claim her government caters to the will of pharmaceutical lobbyists. According to the non-partisan Washington, D.C.based Center for Responsive Politics, pharmaceutical companies spent $900 million on lobbying between

1998 and 2005, more than any other industry in the U.S. The Conservative government in Canada is no less corruptible than American politicians. The combined worth of the world’s top five drug companies is twice the combined GNP of all sub-Saharan Africa and their influence on the rules of world trade is many times stronger because they can bring their wealth to bear directly on the levers of Western power. Citing the importance of transparency, McLeod said she supported a private mem-

ber’s bill, Bill C-377, that would force unions to open their books to the public. Unfortunately, government transparency concerning Bill C-398 is more like a smoke screen that hides the potential loss of profit pharmaceutical companies would have endured had this bill passed. The Canadian federal budget, delivered in March 2007, provided an additional tax incentive to Canadian pharmaceutical companies to provide drugs to certain Canadian registered charities as long as the drugs are used

outside of Canada. Drug companies are allowed to send more expensive drugs that may be close to expiry dates. Other concerns lost in the political fog are the possibility of reselling drugs, inflated revenue reporting, double counting revenues, diversion of funds from good medicine to bad, acceptance of inappropriate, short-dated and poorly labelled drugs and lack of regulation. This last concern is where transparency gets lost in translation.

LOCAL NEWS

Snow angels needed As snow piles up around the city, the Kamloops Seniors Outreach Society is looking for angels. Specifically, angels with snow shovels. The society’s Snow Angel program, which provides snow-shovelling services to seniors, is in full swing for the winter. However, volunteer co-ordinator Harjeet Dhaliwal noted, the program has run short of volunteers, leaving more than 30 seniors without help. “These seniors that aren’t receiving Snow Angel services, a lot of them are really wanting the service,” she said. “But, without the volunteers, I can’t really provide them the service.” Most of the seniors live in Brocklehurst, on the South Shore or in Sahali and Aberdeen, Dhaliwal said, though there are a few in Juniper ONLINE You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com

Ridge and Dallas who also need volunteer help. Volunteers are typically paired with seniors living nearby and can choose to shovel snow for one or many households in their neighbourhood. Dhaliwal said the goal of the program is to keep seniors living independently in their homes for as long as possible. Many clients have mobility issues or problems with arthritis, which prevent them from doing their own shovelling. “If they’re unable to shovel their driveways, it makes it harder for them to go out and get in their vehicles to do their quick shopping, or even just go outside,” she said. “And, with home and community care — sometimes some of them have nurses coming in and going out. So if they don’t have their driveways shovelled, those

people can’t come in and do the work that they need to do.” Introduced last year, the Snow Angel program has already become one of the society’s largest projects in terms of the number of clients and volunteers. “The number of seniors that are wanting the service has bumped up quite a lot,” Dhaliwal said. “We went from a little under 70 to now we have 124 — and I’m getting more and more calls every day.” To become a volunteer Snow Angel, call Dhaliwal at 250-8280600. Volunteers must provide two character references before being paired with a senior.

I LOVE WINTER!

COMMUNITY

Cedric can be an entertainer Cedric is looking for a home — and the folks at the animal-health technology program at Thompson Rivers University are hoping he finds one for Christmas. The one-year-old border colliecross is the last dog left in the program from the past term. Sonia Walczak, an instruction in the program, said there’s nothing wrong with Cedric — he just got overlooked during the last batch of adoptions of the dogs and cats the students use to learn with during the term. True to his dominant breed, Cedric is smart and energetic and would work best in a family with older children and even another dog or cats. He needs some direction when meeting other dogs because he’s still pretty young and learning, Walczak said, noting the students have been

working with him on proper etiquette at the dog park. “But, he learns quickly,” she said. Cedric came to the program through the Kamloops branch of the SPCA, where he was surrendered by a family that said it didn’t have the time to put into raising the then-pup. As with all animals in the program, Cedric is neutered, has a microchip and is tattoo, vaccinated and dewormed. He can be adopted for $75. For those interested in cats, there are three left looking for homes, as well. For more information, call the program at 250-828-5174. Because the term is over, leave a message; students will be going in daily to care for Cedric and the cats and will clear any voice messages.

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour 1/2 tsp. flaked kosher salt 2 1/4 tsp. active dry yeast 3 tbsps. granulated sugar 1 2/3 cups lukewarm milk 1 egg, beaten In a small bowl, proof the yeast in the milk, along with a teaspoon of the sugar. In a separate bowl, combine flour, remaining sugar and salt. Add yeast mixture and egg and whisk to combine. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow to rise for an hour. Oil a poffertjes pan set over medium-low heat. Fill divots with batter (we used a plastic squeeze bottle with a wide nib--trim to widen if necessary). Using two bamboo skewers, turn the poffertjes over as soon as the bottom is golden and has set (this happens quickly). Serve with butter and generous siftings of confectioners’ sugar. For pans, shop online at poffertjes.ca.

watch as batter is ladled into rows of perfectly shaped dimples that, we are about to discover, make up the traditional moulding of an (industrial) Poffertjes pan. Seasoned from tens of thousands of uses, the cast-iron griddle mesmerizes. And, when the cook neatly flips each little pancake to turn golden on the other side, we step inside, wait as she plates and mounds an order of poffertjes with butter and confectioners’ sugar, then hands them to an ear-to-ear-grinning customer. Eagerly, we mangle the pronunciation (poff-er-chuz) and place two orders of our own. “Maybe we should have shared a plate,” I say when I see just how much butter is slathered before the icing sugar is dusted. It’s a suggestion which solicits a glower from Chefhusband — and another of the same two nights later, when we return for seconds. Poffertjes, we learn as we tuck in, are traditional Dutch treats. The slathers of butter and heaps of powdered sugar are also traditional but, already, I’m thinking of Christmas Eve or morning

or a family brunch during the holidays and serving these with drizzles of Summerland Sweets syrups. Or maple. On top of, of course, daubs of soft butter. Fortunately, for our plans, the shop sells poffertjes pans. And, once home, we discover the packaging the pan came in has a recipe printed in both German and Dutch. After translating the Dutch (thank you Internet), I get out the flour and yeast and improvise a little. Once the batter has risen, we heat up the pan. Five months after discovering poffertjes in Charlottetown, we soften some butter, sift a snowfall of powdered sugar, and enjoy a preview of the Christmas that, for us, began back in July.

YVONNE DOREEN FELLER

If I Knew ...

1918~2012 It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Yvonne Doreen (Billie) Feller on December 16, 2012. Billie was predeceased by her husband August Feller in 1983, daughter Sharon Brewer in 1989, daughter Betty Flewin in 1998 and grandson Randy Flewin. She is survived by her son August (Budge) Feller (Cheryl) of Heffley Creek, seven grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren, sisters Marjorie Grant of Quebec and Lee Finkle of Chicago. Billie was born in Medicine Hat, Alberta on May 22, 1918, moved to Nelson, BC in 1943 and then Kamloops in 2005. She was a life member of the Women’s Institute, Royal Purple and Willow Haven Hospital Association in Nelson. The family would like to offer special thanks to the staff of the Overlander Extended Care Facility for all their kindness and support. A Memorial will be held for Billie in the spring of 2013. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577 Condolences may be emailed to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Bruce Mertz

Born in Penticton, BC, August 21, 1950 Married Diane Hannas, April 28, 1973 Proud Dad of Steven, June 20, 1976 Passed away peacefully, from coronary disease, in his sleep in his favorite chair, December 13, 2012 at the age of 62. Those left devastated, his best friend and wife of 39 years, Diane; son Steven and his fiancée Lori Dangelewicz (the only person brave enough to ever challenge Bruce for his chocolates); his two sisters Maureen (Don) and their family, and Joan. Also left devastated are his 2 best friends from high school, Jim and Harry and their wives, Donna and Barb, endless relatives and many friends. Everyone loved, admired, respected and depended on him for his strength, advice, guidance and especially his sense of humor. His railroad job started January 1973 and continued until his retirement at the age of 56. A clip from a CN Magazine read: On the job Bruce was renown in his inventiveness. Among his 8 suggestion award-winning ideas for CN is the “automatic ruler 42 flags,” a signaling device for track workers… This device has saved time thus increasing productivity by removing the chore of installing and removing manual flags morning and evening. Same magazine clip on a personal note: Bruce and Diane have a “special retirement project.” In 1992 they saw a real estate agent pounding his sign in on a lot, right on the lake, in beautiful Red Lake, BC, 40km from Kamloops. They spent 20 happy years building a cottage and landscaping their property while still living in town. The best part is Bruce and Diane did it all together with their own hands, every nail, and every blister. The cottage was almost finished when Bruce had his first heart attack and Bruce decided play was as important as productivity. He bought an ATV and then Bruce and Diane quit work everyday, if they worked at all. Together they explored every back road they could find, fished, and spent time enjoying special friends. He will be cremated and in August along with friends and family he will be free to roam Red Lake forever. Flowers are declined in favor of charitable donations.

If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right. There will always be another day to say “I love you,” And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do?” But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

Since you’ve been working so hard lately, it’s actually a good opportunity to do something to let loose.

SNOW POW Andrew Armstrong knifes through powder this week at Sun Peaks Resort, where 97 centimetres of new snow fell between Dec. 10 and Dec. 17. The white stuff has been coming down at a recordsetting pace this month. The all-time mark for new snow in the month of December was set in 2006, when 247 centimetres fell from the sky. As of Tuesday, Dec. 18, there were 138 centimetres of new snow on the ground, with 12 days left until the new year. Sam Eagan photo

Second-half schedule offers respite for Blazers By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE KAMLOOPS BLAZERS’ resident travel agent, media co-ordinator Tim O’Donovan, has it easy in the second half of the Western Hockey League’s regular season. After spending 23 nights in hotels in the first half, the Blazers will find accommodation on the road only nine times after the Christmas break. “We had a tough first half, playing 20 of our road games, with two big trips into

Alberta,” said Dave Hunchak, the Blazers’ associate coach. “If we can spread our schedule in the second half, that lends to us being healthier, No. 1, and being fresher, whether it’s at home or on the road.” The Blazers have 16 road games in the second half — 12 of them are against B.C. Division opponents and none of them are against Eastern Conference teams. For Kamloops, the toughest road stretch will run from Jan. 11 to Jan. 18, during which the Blazers play twice in Prince George,

twice in Victoria and once in Kennewick, Wash. The Blazers stumbled into the holidays, losing three straight, once in overtime, to cap a four-game Alberta road swing. After taking the league by storm in September and October, the Blue and Orange cooled off in November and December, allowing the Portland Winterhawks to enter the break atop the Western Conference. The Blazers, at 25-9-2-2, are in second place with 54 points. Portland, at 28-5-1,

has played four fewer games than Kamloops. Perhaps fatigue caught up with the River City club as it coasted to the end of the first half. The home stretch of the second half is much less taxing. The Blazers play five of their last seven regular-season games at Interior Savings Centre. Away from the ice, the players can use the lighter second-half schedule to catch up on schoolwork, while the team’s travelling staff is looking forward to becoming re-acquainted with family, friends

and significant others. “I’m very fortunate to have married a very good woman who puts up with a lot of stuff,” said Hunchak, whose team returns to action in Kelowna against the Rockets on Dec. 27. “Any time you can spend time at home, whether you’re watching your kids do sport or school activities, or just being around the house, it’s real important.”

in scoring this season is Daniel Buchanan, with 14 goals and 36 points. Josh Rasmussen, who has played three fewer games than Buchanan, is just one point back, with 10 goals and 35 points. Marcus Beesley has done the lion’s share of the goaltending, posting a 10-18-2 record, with a 3.32 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.

Update on Red Bridge Project The Kamloops Communities in Bloom Bicentennial project of enhancing the Red Bridge with improved entrances, informational kiosks and eventually solar spot lighting is progressing. Fundraising for the project continues. Kiosks recycled from a previous life on Victoria Street are nearing completion and will provide a description of the history of the three Red Bridges on Lorne Street and in Pioneer Park on three panels and sponsors on the fourth side. Personalized bricks with names of current residents and in memoriams will form a walkway around the kiosks. Six inscribed benches made from the second Red Bridge timbers will be installed around the kiosks. The bricks make a great Christmas gift. As one young man said, “What a great idea for my grandparents!� A named brick is also a great gift for others who have lived here a long time, are current residents or for groups or clubs. Use the donation form in this paper, at the donation sites or on the website: http://www.kamloops.ca/cib/redbridgeproject.shtml. Larger sponsorships are very welcome. For packages, call 250-372-3242. This is a one time project that will make the bridge an iconic landmark visible from the air, highways and walkways, many homes and restaurants, as well as from the hospital and Hospice. Let’s light up the bridge!

As 2012 draws to a close, we would like to take the time to thank the Kamloops community for your patience as we prepare our Environmental Assessment Application for submission. Moving into 2013, our work will continue to focus on finalizing the baseline studies that form the foundation of our application; the application which will answer the questions you’ve been asking. We want to assure you that the consultation process is integral and relevant to the outcome of our Environmental Assessment Application. We are mindful of our responsibility to keep you apprised of our ongoing activities and developments and, as such, we feel it is important to inform you that we are planning to conduct drilling and ground surveying throughout the Project area. The information collected will be used as support for our Environmental Assessment Application. We will have staff and equipment working in the area and have notified the affected land-owners of where and how this work will be done. We are also coordinating our efforts with Kinder Morgan to ensure that the integrity of the local pipeline is maintained as we do this work. Drilling and surveying is expected to commence before year end and be completed in the spring of 2013. KGHM International is looking forward to further engaging local residents and other stakeholder groups in order to advance the Ajax Project in a way that will ensure we are making a positive contribution to the City of Kamloops and the Thompson Nicola Regional District. From all of us at KGHM International, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season and a joyful new year. We look forward to talking with you u ssoon. oon. Sincerely, KGHM International Ltd.

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

Simply put, it is insurance that pays out a lump sum, tax-free payment if you are diagnosed with a Critical Illness.There is more than 25 critical illness covered (cancer, heart attack, stroke, etc.)

Megan Dalke touches the wall to claim gold in the 14-and-under girls’ 400m freestyle event at the Kamloops Classic Swimming club’s MJB Law Classic Invitational, which wrapped up on Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. Allen Douglas/KTW

Classics swim to first-place finish The Kamloops Classic Swimming club hosted and won the 20th annual MJB Law Classic Invitational, which wrapped up on Sunday, Dec. 16, at the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. Highlighting the Classics’ results was Colin Gilbert, who set five new club records — in the 200m fly, 50m fly, 1,500m freestyle, 100m fly and 400m freestyle. Gilbert won every event he entered except the 1,500m free. In the 14-and-under boys’ division, Carel Ackermann set three new club records and won the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke events. His times were good enough to qualify for the Speedo Western Canadian Championships in February in Saskatoon. Three Kamloops swimmers — Megan

Dalke, Gabrielle Dagasso and Makena Sutherland — fared well in the 14-andunder girls’ division. Dalke set club records in the 800m freestyle and 200m individual medley. She also won the 200m and 400m freestyle and individual medley events. Dagasso won the 50m fly and 100m fly events, setting club records in the process. She achieved the qualifying standard required to compete at Westerns. Sutherland set a new club record in the 50m backstroke event. Dylana Milobar set new club records in the 50m and 100m backstroke in the 15-andover girls’ division, but just missed the qualifying standards required to reach the 2013 senior national championships —

which double as a qualification meet for the 2013 world championships. She won the 50m, 100m and 200m breaststroke events on the weekend. Cohen Freeze, competing in the 10-andunder boys’ division, won the 50m, 100m and 200m freestyle events. He qualified for the provincial AA championships in Surrey in February. In the 15-and-over boys’ division, Ben Branchflower won the 50m fly category and achieved the qualifying time required for the 2013 Canadian Age Group Championships in July in Montreal. In total, the Classics won 58 medals at the meet, which was attended by 560 swimmers from clubs across B.C. and Alberta. For more results, log on to kamloopsthisweek.com.

The statistics reveal the fact that more and more Canadians, at even younger ages, will be confronted by a critical illness in their lifetime. Fortunately, statistics also show that progress in medical science and improvements in our lifestyle have helped people to survive these illnesses, and to live longer.

Kamloops at 200: Your history In June and August, Kamloops This Week published two special editions to mark the 200th anniversary of the founding of our community. Whether you come from a family that

settled here a century ago or if you arrived last month, everyone has some kind of history with Kamloops. As part of KTW’s 200-year special publications, we asked readers for their history with

the city where the rivers meet. Today, we continue Your History, based on submissions we received. Future editions of KTW will include more Your History stories.

Some families followed the urge to Go West My grandparents’ hometowns stretch all across the country and, so, it has always fascinated me how and why people end up where they do. My grandfather Ken Terry was born in Barrie, Ont., while my grandmother, Evelyn (Blondie) Shep, was born in Spruce Grove, Alta. During the 1940s, they met and fell in love while he was stationed in Edmonton with the military. He was fortunate enough to travel across Canada and the United States playing professional baseball and hockey and often wrote love letters home to grandma, expressing interest in one day owning their own business. In the late 1940s, my grandparents moved to Kamloops after my grandfather was approached to play hockey for the Kamloops Elks. Their dream of being business owners was realized when they built and opened Terry’s Billiards at 57 Tranquille Rd. The opening ad read: “Another place of business added to the rapidly

expanding Village of North Kamloops.” I remember my grandfather saying he thought Kamloops would be a nice place to live because he thought it would always remain small due to being surrounded by all the mountains. My mom Ryvonne has said: “They weren’t here very long when dad said he wanted to stay and raise a family. “Kamloops must have left a huge impact on him, because he had been to so many places in Canada and the U.S. and could have lived anywhere. “He made some really good friends quickly and often said how much the climate influenced his decision. “I’m so glad they chose Kamloops.” Around 1960, Ken and Blondie owned and operated the first Dairy Queen in Kamloops, while Blondie became the Girl Guide commissioner. With such heavy community involvement, they forged friendships that would last decades. Sports has always been important in Kamloops — and is the reason Desiray Fenrick’s family moved to the River City. Kamloops Museum and Archives photo

COMMUNITY

It was during this time my paternal grandfather, Mark Fenrick, who had been here for a visit in 1958 from Saskatchewan, packed up my grandma Marcella and the youngest nine of their 12 kids and moved to Kamloops in 1963, when my dad Greg was 11. My dad says: “From what I understand, Wilkie was a typical small town and they maybe wanted a fresh start.” When they arrived, my grandfather worked as a millwright by Douglas Lake Ranch at a portable sawmill that used to bring lumber into town. My dad recalls he would sometimes accompany him to help fix equipment on the weekends.

They eventually ended up settling just north of Kamloops in Barriere — this is where all of my childhood memories were made with them. Due to fate, luck or circumstance, Kamloops is the place my parents met, married and decided to stay, surrounded by loving family and good friends. My husband and I were born a day apart at Royal Inland Hospital, have known each other our entire lives and have purchased a home in the same neighbourhood where he was raised. For more than 60 years, Kamloops has created wonderful lasting memories for my family — and, no matter where time takes us, it will always be home. — Desiray Fenrick

TRAVEL

Spending Christmas at Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria takes a person back to another time (above). Nearby Hatley Castle is another edifice from another era that sparkles with signs of Christmas. Margaret Deefholts photos

Celebrating a true Victorian Christmas By Margaret Deefholts SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

I

AM STANDING at the entrance to a splendid castle, its fireplace decorated with boughs of mistletoe, its hallway aglow with lights and its grand staircase banisters wreathed in garlands of holly. In the dining room, distinguished guests converse across an elegantly set dining table. The women wear silk gowns, their diamond necklaces winking in the light of candelabra centrepieces. The men sport mutton-chop moustaches and sideburns. A child’s laughter echoes faintly from one of the upstairs rooms. The ghosts of Christmases past still linger in the rooms of Craigdarroch Castle in Victoria and, although these guests at their Christmas banquet are figments of my imagination, the castle still celebrates this most joyous of all seasons by donning a mantle of dazzling Yuletide finery. Craigdarroch Castle was completed in 1890 by coal baron Robert Dunsmuir, who spared no

expense in furnishing his stately mansion with stained-glass windows, oil paintings and lavish Victorian furnishings. The family history, depicted in photos, memorabilia and information panels in the exhibit room on the second floor, traces the lives of Robert and Joan Dunsmuir, their 10 children and some of their grandchildren. Today, in the drawing room on the entrance floor, I watch a small girl looking round-eyed at a Christmas tree surrounded by antique toys, its branches arrayed in red ribbons, bows and silver ornaments. In Joan Dunsmuir’s first-floor sitting room, the mantelpiece adorned with pine cones and boughs of holly draws an admiring “ah” from a group of Japanese visitors. Hatley Castle, built by James Dunsmuir — the sole surviving son of Robert and Joan — is also in festive Christmas attire and the entrance hall is cheery, with twin Christmas trees flanking a fireplace. Festoons of evergreen boughs intertwined with poinsettias and twinkling

lights lie across the mantelpiece. Hatley Castle is haunted by ghosts of its past. The family was cursed with tragedy: James Dunsmuir’s second son was killed in the First World War and his daughters were a strange and wild lot. There are reports of eerie supernatural occurrences for which there are no straightforward explanations. I wonder whether one of the unhappy spirits inhabiting Hatley is the alcoholic Dola, (James’ youngest daughter), whose brief, unsuccessful marriage gave way to an intimate, lifelong relationship with actress Tallulah Bankhead. Leaving Victoria’s past and returning to its present, I stroll the corridors of the Empress Hotel to admire a display of 60 or more exquisitely decorated Christmas trees which are part of their annual Festival of Trees celebration. Sponsored by local businesses and organizations the Festival raises funds for the B.C. Children’s Hospital — a fitting way to commemorate the birth of a Child born over two millennia ago, whose

message of love and compassion lives on today. No trip to Victoria at Christmas time would be complete without an after-dark visit to the Butchart Gardens, decked out in shimmering Christmas splendour. Visitors gaze at silver-spangled trees, will-o’-the-wisp lights flickering through the bushes, avenues of lighted archways, ginger-bread type houses, and dancing “snow flakes” powdering the trees. The Butchart’s theme of the Twelve Days of Christmas, is an entry into an enchanted world. First up is the partridge in a pear tree, followed shortly after by two turtle doves nestling together and so on. Particularly charming, however, are three French hens cavorting under a lighted Eiffel Tower and five golden rings floating on a lake and eight graceful maids a-milking. Around a corner, a carousel with nursery rhyme and storybook heroines twirls to the strains of music from the Nutcracker Suite and I pause to watch three children gleefully identifying their favourite Mother

Goose characters. At the end of my tour through fantasyland, I listen to a hearty rendition of Christmas favourites by a four-piece brass band. But, the evening isn’t over yet. Under the gaze of 12 drummers marching overhead — courtesy of the Inn at Laurel Point, which has hosted my visit to the Butchart Gardens — I lift a mug of steaming hot, satiny-smooth eggnog, laced with an out-ofthis-world combination of run and spices and drink a toast to Victoria’s ghosts of Christmases past and to its magical spirit of Christmas present.

The Precious Gift of Faith

These churches would like to invite you to join them in celebrating the reason for the season

The Christmas child-son nexus By Narayan Mitra SPECIAL TO KTW

narayanmitra@hotmail.com

For many of us who have travelled the road to Bethlehem through reading or ‘seeing’ the narrative, it is a familiar journey. But, we can never exhaust meaning. There is a familiarity that breeds contempt. Never is this true of the Christmas story. This is a familiarity that awakens interest, heightens hope and strengthens faith. The prophetic words of Isaiah, “Unto us a child is born,” have been fulfilled in the birth of Christ. The divine significance of His birth has inspired not only the theology of the church, but its most deeply moving music. We are always thrilled with Handel’s Messiah as the chorus sings exultantly, “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given.” This was an unusual child. The stories of His birth, marked by singing angels, adoring shepherds, wise men who came to worship Him guided by a star, are the most beautiful and haunting ever told about the birth of anyone. We know that He was an unusual child because He went on to become an unusual man. No life ever lived on this planet has been so influential in the affairs of men. The continuing influence of His life comes from the fact that through Him God has given us the fullest revelation of His nature, His will, His purpose for mankind. At least two truths grow out of the revelation of His birth: Such an extraordinary life could have come to us in such an ordinary fashion! What seems more ordinary or commonplace than the birth of a baby? Thousands of babies are born daily in all parts of the world. Yet, God must have used some extraordinary means to produce so extraordinary a person. If it is so, did God want us to see that there is something potentially extraordinary about things we take for granted? Be that as it may, there can be no doubt that God came in One who was made “in all things . . . like unto His brethren” (Heb. 2:17). He had to be made like His ‘brothers’ in every way in order that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God. The second truth suggested by the birth of this Child is the unpredictable possibilities that may be hidden in the most unpromising circumstances. Jesus’ birth was an event which prophets had foretold and for which people had looked expectantly. Now they came to “see the thing which is come to pass” (Luke 2:15). And what did they see?

CHRISTMAS EVE • 5PM CANDLELIGHT SERVICE

Join us as we celebrate the birth of our Saviour!

SUNDAY SERVICE DEC. 26TH • 10AM www.kamloopsefree.com

“A baby wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.” The prophet had said, “His name shall be called wonderful, counselor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the prince of peace” (Isaiah 9:6). But, there was nothing in what the adoring shepherds or the wise men saw to give the slightest hint of all these. They saw a little baby — no different from any other Hebrew children. What an unimpressive discovery! What an unpromising fulfillment to man’s long cherished hopes!! Ah, but this child was born to remind us how much can come from how little and what unpredictable possibilities may lie in most unlikely places or people. This should help us correct our judgments. Too often we are impressed by earthquake, wind, and fire — the noisy and the big and the bizarre. But, we miss the still small voice, the sound of gentle stillness. Yet, more often than not, events which have seemed too trivial to be mentioned have been full with world-shaking possibilities of which we never dreamed. Christmas reminds us that we may be misled if we evaluate life by its size, its noise, its pomp. Meanwhile, there may be some movement, some idea, some vision that stirs men’s souls, unnoticed and unpublicized, that will live on and do its creative work when the tumult and the shouting dies. May our Christmas journey this year be guided by the prophetic words, “Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given.” It is to such a faith in God, who moves in mysterious way His wonders to perform, that Christmas 2012 is calling us.
