Job shortage not yet critical in Kamloops By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

WELL, HELLO THERE! British Columbia Lt.-Gov. Judith Guichon shakes the hand of Grade 4 student Rusky Fontanilla at Stuart Wood elementary on Wednesday, Jan. 30, following a school assembly. Guichon spent 45 minutes speaking and answering many questions from students. Also at the school were Kamloops-Thompson school district superintendant Terry Sullivan and Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar (behind Guichon in photo). Dave Eagles/KTW

As universities in the province sound an alarm about an impending job shortage, the head of Venture Kamloops said the situation isn’t critical in the Tournament Capital. Jim Anderson, who said he supports the universities in their quest for changes that will add to the work pool, said B.C. is not producing talented people fast enough to keep up with the need. Kamloops is not in a deficit position now, he said, thanks to a good labour pool. However, he added, there are some segments that are lacking. For example, one skill-set area that is falling behind in potential employees is in innovation, Anderson said. “And that’s not just equipment. It’s about managers, engineers, people in finance. People who can create new opportunities. “We’re not talking about someone inventing something new, but in advancing existing technologies for business.” Noting Kamloops tends to be an industry-based economy, Anderson said “attached to that is a certain way of life” that doesn’t always focus on innovation. “There is gap there we are attempting to breach.” Maurice Hindle, president of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, agreed all sectors that contribute to the economy “have to make sure we can support the growth that will be coming at us in the next five years.” He concurred with Anderson that the Kamloops economy is relatively

strong and expanding, noting he expects Domtar employees losing their jobs when one line is shut down will find opportunities in the community in other businesses that are expanding. The national chamber conducted a survey in 2012 to identify the top barriers to competitiveness and the No. 1 issue was a shortage of skilled trades, Hindle said. An update of the study is due to be released in February and Hindle said he expects that shortage will remain at the top of the list. Earlier this week, Thompson Rivers University joined with other post-secondary facilities in calling on the provincial government to enact three steps to fill what it says is a growing skills gap: • Fund a space for every qualified student to ensure 11,000 new student spaces in university, college and trades training in the next four years; • Guarantee students in need have resources to help finance their education, including grants, scholarships and improvements to student loans; • Commit to innovation and jobs by creating an Innovate BC initiative to bring government, business and post-secondary institutions together to build on the province’s research and innovation potential. TRU president Alan Shaver said the concern goes beyond simply skilled trades, noting research indicates more people are leaving the workforce in coming years than will be replaced. He said studies have shown demand for workers will exceed supply by 2016. X See KEEPING A12

THIS WEEK

ICE

CUBISTS By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T’S A QUESTION MOST KAMLOOPS residents have probably asked themselves at one point or another while crossing south on Overlanders Bridge into downtown Kamloops during the winter. “Who the heck does that?” The Guerin Creek waterfall on the rock face at the south end of the bridge is usually colourful when frozen, but no one seems to know why — or how, or who. Until now . . . Roy Rodrigues and his three kids — nine-year-old Hanna, 12-year-old Joel and 15-year-old Garren — have been colouring the hanging ice for six years. He won’t take credit for inventing the idea, but believes his kids have been the only ones brightening up the winter commute for North Shore residents in recent years. “To tell you the truth, I’d seen it done before,” he said. “But, I haven’t really seen it done since we’ve done it.” Rodrigues said the method by which his kids colour the ice has changed over the years. At first, they went at it with a mix of food colouring and water in spray bottles. Then they tried the same concoction in water balloons. Now, they put the mixture into high-powered water guns — something Rodrigues said his kids find more fun. The Rodrigues clan has only been out three times this winter, but the patriarch is hoping temperatures drop so they can resume their ice art. Rodrigues said it has to be about -10 C to make the colour stick. The artists don’t do their work under the cover of darkness. Rodrigues said the colouring is usually done in midmorning or mid-afternoon. “Sometimes people coming off the bridge will honk their horns or wave,” he said. “It’s fun.” Rodrigues said his kids are going to keep colouring the ice for the foreseeable future. “Absolutely,” he said. “They kind of consider it their waterfall now.”

More Than Just Games: Canada & the 1936 Olympics The Kamloops Museum and Archives is pleased to present a new temporary exhibit: More Than Just Games: Canada & the 1936 Olympics from February 5th to May 1st, 2013. The 1936 Olympic Games held in Berlin were an important milestone in the history of sport. They were the first Games to feature live broadcasts, a torch relay and an elaborate cultural program. However, the 1936 Olympics also presented the world and the athletic community with a dilemma: should they participate when the host nation was Nazi Germany? Adolf Hitler was initially opposed to hosting the Games. Olympic ideals of peaceful competition, co-operation and equality between athletes stood in direct opposition to the Nazi program of brute force, racism and violence. In the end, the Nazis decided the Olympics presented an opportunity to present a sanitized version of Germany to the world in a cynical effort to portray Nazi Germany as a respectable member of the community of nations. Many were not fooled. Athletes around the world pondered the decision to boycott the games or participate and perhaps lend validity to the Nazi regime. For Jewish athletes, the dilemma was personal. Nazi policies were brutally anti-Semitic and worsening with each passing week. More Than Just Games addresses Nazi policies, the boycott debate and the reactions of individual Canadian athletes. The exhibit examines how an apolitical sporting event can be manipulated to serve purely political ends. More Than Just Games addresses these issues from a unique Canadian perspective. More Than Just Games: Canada &the 1936 Olympics was produced by the Vancouver Holocaust Education Centre. For more information please call the museum at 250- 8283576.

Residents sniff out odour-control request as budget meetings continue By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Something smells rotten on Lorne Street and area residents were out in force at Kamloops’ second public-budget consultation meeting on Tuesday, Jan. 29. For several years, residents at Park Place have complained of a foul odour emanating from the Lorne Street sewer lift station, but the city’s efforts to deal with the issue have so far failed. An odour-control bed, which would fix the smell, is in this year’s budget as a supplemental item, which council must choose to approve or cut following its community-feedback period. It would cost $340,000. Of the approximately 60 people who entered Interior Savings Centre for the budget discussion, this time focused on public works, many appeared to have an interest in seeing the odourcontrol bed get approved. Park Place resident Debbie Taylor said the smell has become difficult to live alongside. “Without getting too graphic, the smell that comes from our system smells like very bad

plumbing and I ask you to consider the health effects for residents that live in this building,” she said. Another resident called the smell “truly embarrassing” for property owners and residents who come to the area to show off Riverside Park and the Rivers Trail to visitors. Taylor agreed. “We have the Rivers Trail, which is the perfect walking, jogging area for many people, and they cannot help but be taken by the smell that comes from the poor system we have in place at Lorne Street,” she said. Another supplemental item got a boost from Finlay Avenue resident Steve Garner. Garner asked the city to put at least one streetlight on the Juniper Heights road. Council has the option to approve up to two lights at a combined cost of $25,000. “We’re a dead-end street, we have no lights and we’re in the shadow of a hill that blocks the lights on the nearest street, Qu’Appelle [Boulevard],” he said. “We would be happy to have

just one light. One light, that’s all we ask for. We ask the council when you’re looking at this, if you can’t see it as a priority, can you give us some reasons why the flowers and all the nice-tohaves make it ahead of the safety brought on by streetlights?” Others questioned the city on the costs of the Valleyview bike overpass, a pesky pothole on Overlanders Bridge and whether it might be worth raising the Tranquille Road overpass to avoid another long shutdown if a truck runs into it, as one did last summer. Public-works staff said the pothole is on the list to patch as soon as weather conditions improve, while former public works director David Duckworth said the city is looking at adding more warning signs in advance of the overpass, but raising its height would likely lead to another “traffic nightmare.” The city’s final budget-discussion evening will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 5 at ISC and features presentations from development and engineering services and the corporate services and community safety departments.

Rotary, district team up to help feed kids dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

As expected, the Kamloops-Thompson board of education approved a recommendation this week that will move a hungry-child initiative a step closer to implementation. The Rotary Club of Kamloops pitched the initiative to the school district in December. This week, the board adopted a recommendation from Karl deBruijn, assistant superintendent of education, that family dinners be scheduled for Feb. 13 and Feb. 27, March 13 and March 27 and April 10 and April 24. The dinners will be served in the NorKam secondary cafeteria at 7 p.m. Trustee Cara McKelvey questioned the timing, noting families often need to feed their children before 7 p.m. Rotary president Christopher Seguin said the challenge is to give volunteers enough time to get to the school after work, but he’s hoping they can start serving dinner by 5:30 p.m. Seguin said there will be board games and other activities available for families to take part in after eating. In response to questions about how the meals would be characterized and advertised, Seguin said they will be promoted as family meals that anyone can attend — although the motivation for creating them is to ensure hungry children get fed. Rotary is hoping to see 30 to 50 families take part and anticipates the program will grow from there. The school district will provide the venue for free and the service club will provide the food, volunteers to prepare and serve the meals and cleanup. NorKam chef Scott Roberts has offered to help with the first meal to familiarize volunteers with procedures. The report from deBruijn recommended a

second phase of the initiative that would see the school district work with the Kamloops Food Bank, Rotaract and other organizations to create a model that will enable schools to supply, store and distribute healthy breakfasts to

needy children. Distribution would involve confidentiality for the students. The Rotarians are looking for four schools to work with to develop and pilot a model program.

SULLIVAN HEADS B.C. ASSOCIATION Terry Sullivan has been elected president of the British Columbia School Superintendents Association. The organization represents school superintendents — Sullivan holds that position in the Kamloops-Thompson School District — as well as assistant superintendents, directors of instruction and other senior executives in the province’s 60 school districts. The association focuses on professional development, creating programs to address issues in education and new technologies.

NSBIA: No controversy in new hire By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA) denies any controversy surrounding the hiring of its new general manager. Lyn Hellyar will assume the top job at the NSBIA on Friday, Feb. 1, replacing Peter Mutrie, who parted ways with the organization in November of last year, citing “shifting human dynamics.” Hellyar, the former executive director of Vancouver’s West End Business Improvement Association, left that organization early last year. According to reports in Xtra News, her departure was subject to legal discussions and left the organization’s next director with a “fair bit of cleanup” to do. West End BIA board chairman John Nicholson told Xtra a governance review conducted

after Hellyar’s departure found 42 places the organization could improve its strategic planning and management. “Normally, you do a governance review, you have six or eight things you must change or review. We had 42,” he said. Hellyar had reportedly also clashed with the gay community in the area, most notably in 2008 when the West End BIA took down rainbow flags in the Davie Village so it could promote a triathlon championship it was co-hosting. NSBIA president Lynda Douglas said her organization’s hiring committee viewed Hellyar’s departure as a case of board priorities changing in Vancouver. “There was no controversy or perceived controversy from the hiring committee’s point of view,” she said. Douglas told KTW Hellyar’s references were all from past board members at the West End

Parked vehicles were the target at 1040 Talasa Ct. in Sun Rivers overnight on Monday, Jan. 28, with at least 10 vehicles broken into in an underground parkade and items stolen. In addition, a 2009 Vokswagen Rabbit with B.C. licence plate 346SMJ was stolen from a parking

BIA, noting all were positive. “I know there was a change of board and a change of presidency and it sounded like a change of direction,” she said. Douglas said the NSBIA looked at five candidates to fill the general manage position and interviewed two. Hellyar, who had helmed the West End BIA since its formation in 2007, got the job on enthusiasm and experience, Douglas said. “I definitely look forward to bringing back that vibrant energy that the North Shore deserves,” Douglas said. “She understands how to work with diverse groups of people. It’s fabulous.” Douglas said Hellyar was not available to speak to the media at this time. The NSBIA will hold a meetand-greet session with its new general manager on Tuesday, Feb. 12, from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., at the Holiday In, 675 Tranquille Rd., before its annual general meeting.

Baby, have we really come a long way?

I

WROTE A STORY ONCE about a woman who had been hired as a plumber. This was big news at the time — and that time was 1978. The predominantly male newsroom where I was working offered up some truly sexist remarks about the assignment, but I thought it was a cool reality that a woman had bucked the trend and was willing to talk about it. Note, however, that this happened 35 years ago, the same year the Canadian Human Rights Act came into effect and prohibited discrimination on the basis of gender in employment in the federal jurisdiction. So, it could rightly be seen that a female plumber was newsworthy. Now that it’s 2013, however, do we really need to celebrate a new female premier in the country? That’s what the CBC did on the night Kathleen Wynne won the leadership of the Ontario Liberals. It’s not like it’s a small group of politicians. Pauline Marois is head of Quebec. Alison Redford is the woman in charge of Alberta, who has been tussling with B.C. Premier Christy Clark the last several months about the environment. Kathy Dunderdale is premier at the opposite end of the country, in Newfoundland and Labrador. Eva Aariak is premier of Nunavut. There were plenty of women at the head of the political table in years past, from Rita Johnson in 1991 to Kim Campbell, who made it to that big head spot when — for however short her term was — she was prime minister in 1993.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL Sometimes I wonder if one of the reasons we celebrate the success of a woman is because we keep doing it. Rather than actually doing what we told ourselves decades ago we wanted as women — to be accepted for who we are and what we can do — we marvel when we are accepted for who we are and what we can do. There are times when we should say, “Wow. Look what just happened. Isn’t it wonderful?” I think most people knew there would be a black president in the U.S. one day, but seeing it happen was remarkable and worth taking a moment to focus on what a social statement it was. Do we need to do it if there’s another black president? I don’t think so. Do we need to do it should Hillary Clinton become the first female president? Of course we do, simply because she would be the first. But, after that, let it go. It’s not novel. It’s what we wanted. Years ago, in that same newsroom, I applied for a transfer to the editorialwriting area. Things had changed; there had been

More money is being earned by fewer people. According to Statistics Canada, 10.6 per cent of the country’s income is now earned by the top one per cent of those who filed tax returns in 2010. The median income for those top earners is almost 10 times higher than the median income for the remaining 99 per cent. This disparity between the haves and the rest of society was the fuel for last year’s Occupy movement that spread around the world from Wall Street. It is a component of the First Nations’ Idle No More protests to reclaim their portion of Canada’s enormous wealth of natural resources, pumped and excavated from lands that once belonged to them. The gap between rich and poor has fired protest and unrest for as long as there’s been currency. Just ask the French, who disposed their monarchy when the population could no longer afford bread because of onerous taxes. In fact, Canada’s not doing too badly when it comes to dispersing income, ranking somewhere in the middle of the rest of the world. According to the Gini Index, a measure of income dispersion developed by an Italian statistician and sociologist in which a coefficient of zero means everyone has exactly the same income and one means all the wealth within a country is held by one person, Canada’s coefficient is .688. That’s lower than countries like Brazil (.784), the United States (.801) and Switzerland (.803). But, it’s higher than the Netherlands (.650), Belgium (.662) and Germany (.667). The country with the most equal distribution of income in the world, according its Gini coefficient of .547, is Japan. Of course, all those statistics are meaningless the next time you check your bank statement. That’s the true measure of wealth distribution. Somehow, it’s never enough.

VIEW

a directive from the executive offices to fast-track women into higher positions. I knew of it because my then-editor called me into his office, told me I had been identified as a female who could be promoted, but that I needed to start wearing more business attire. Becoming head of the employees’ association likely stifled that part of the promotion curve, since other female colleagues were promoted into senior positions and I continued as a reporter and copy editor. However, an opening occurred for an editorial writer/columnist and I was encouraged by others in the newsroom to apply. That application was greeted by a written “no thanks,” but a verbal “You’re not a good enough feminist” explanation. Apparently, being married and having children was enough to lose the label I thought my beliefs and actions had earned. Back then, there was a need to define feminism and women’s success and, now, decades later, that need seems to continue to exist in some fronts. The fact it became the driving point of the CBC coverage of Wynne’s election, however, is shameful. If anything, a newscast that features women in senior roles should realize there’s nothing strange about it. Yes, there are still areas where women are behind. Take a look at the service industry, for one. But let’s celebrate the victories there and recognize that, in so many more areas, it’s your ability that gets you ahead, rather than your business attire.

Editor: Every so often, it seems defeated NDP candidate Michael Crawford pops his head up and writes a letter to the editor, always bashing Prime Minister Stephen Harper or Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod. Here’s guy who has so much to say about what’s wrong with Canada under the Conservatives. Of course, in his position he has no solutions. Until Crawford can muster enough votes to send him to Ottawa, he has zero credibility. He shouldn’t give up his day job. Robert Alexander Kamloops

Re: Story: Liberal candidate Stone decries NDP ‘attack’ ad: “Todd Stone is a typical, self-entitled wannabe.” — posted by Gary Thiessen “The irony of Stone’s comment is that he said there was no content. “Another irony is his statement that advertising won’t work, yet his face is plastered all over buses and billboards.” — posted by Karl Koziura

Former NDP candidate Michael Crawford’s letter to the editor have compelled KTW reader Robert Alexander to weigh in with his thoughts.

City hall needs thorough audit, from top to bottom Editor: The city’s generous $100,000 loan/gift to Western Canada Theatre for upgrades to Pavilion Theatre is a slap in the face to struggling taxpayers who have endured cost increases on pretty much everything in the last couple years. A lot of people don’t have the luxury to enjoy even annual cost-of-living increases in their wages, as do city employees. When they say a dollar from each ticket will go to pay off the loan, I immediately wondered why the theatre

company didn’t have a dollar from every ticket saved up and how they can start now if they couldn’t afford to before. Will they raise the cost of a ticket by a dollar and then, when attendance drops due to cost to theatregoers, have an excuse as to why they cannot repay the money? Meanwhile, when local cadets asked council for a tiny loan for a new furnace, they were told to take a hike. Those youngsters could be the future military or police serving and protecting our nation. The city is bantering

about a three-plus per cent property-tax increase to make up for all the years when taxpayers did not receive big tax increases and to fund substantial increases in other fees and services provided by the city. Byron McCorkell, the city’s parks, recreation and cultural services director, claims he has no money in his budget to replace the roof on the Canada Games Aquatic Centre. Why didn’t he stash away surplus budget money to cover these types of expenses?

I would like to see the entire city get audited. If the audit proves money is being spent properly, city management can be proud and show us they are doing a good job. How are regular people living in this city on fixed incomes and employed by struggling businesses expected to feed the rich, who claim every year they cannot survive without cost-of-living increases? Kim Young Kamloops

Embrace fitnesscare and let us be idle no more! Editor: I follow with interest the many demands for governments to produce more doctors and nurses for our health-care system. May I suggest we focus more efforts on the root of the problem? We need fitnesscare! How? There are many options. Start by removing all taxes from bicycle purchases. From the simplest tricycle to the most expensive mountain bike, no matter what you do on a bike, some combination of heart, lungs and muscles get exercised. Allow tax credits for gym memberships and sports fees for more than just children. Put lottery money into improving urban trail networks. Others will have tons more ideas than me. Let’s get going. Be idle no more! Tom Rankin Kamloops

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Games will help city money numbers By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek,com

Kamloops’ event numbers will hold steady in 2013 with a little help from 4,000 participants at the B.C. Seniors Games, which will be held in August. Sean Smith, the city’s Tournament Capital program co-ordinator, said he expects this year’s numbers will be on track with 2012, when Kamloops hosted 110 events with 25,843 participants. Smith estimates the events had an $11.4-million economic impact on the city — based on the assumption each event participant spends about $125 per day while in Kamloops. That’s down slightly from 2011, when

the city hosted 109 events with 27,878 people and an estimated spin-off of $11.8 million. But, Smith noted, 2011 had a number of larger events that boosted attendance numbers, including the Western Canada Summer Games. The event number doesn’t include partial-day events, Kamloops Blazers and Kamloops Storm hockey games or regular league play in minor hockey and soccer. “We do look at when those groups host tournaments, but when they’re just hosting league games, we don’t count that,” Smith said. “I know my nephew plays hockey and he’ll play Prince George on Saturday and then again on Sunday, so, technically, they’ve been here for two days, but it’s not

really a tournament.” Smith’s economic-impact figure doesn’t take into account money event organizers spend planning or hosting their tournaments — and he believes the $125 per day figure may be somewhat low. “We’ve been using that figure for about nine years now and, about that long ago, they estimated that the average sport participant in the large cities was spending $165 per day in the Vancouvers and Torontos and the Calgarys,” he said. The city went with a slightly lower dollar figure as an acknowledgement of Kamloops’ smaller size. “We’re not wanting to inflate our numbers just to inflate them, but it probably is time we raised that average spending,” Smith said.

Ralph Bell elementary is one of several buildings in Kamloops that once housed students and are now being used by community businesses and groups. Ralph Bell was one of five city schools closed by the Kamloops-Thompson school district in recent years due to declining enrolment. Dave Eagles/KTW

EMPTIED — BUT NOT EMPTY Closed schools remain beehives of community activity By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The last two of five schools closed in Kamloops in recent years should soon be busy places. Kamloops-Thompson school district administrators and staff at the City of Kamloops have signed leases that will see the city rent the former Westsyde and John Tod elementary schools. The city is working with the Boys and Girls Club and YMCAYWCA to turn John Tod in North Kamloops into a community centre. Its plans for Westsyde aren’t known yet, said school district secretary-

treasurer Kelvin Stretch, but he knows all the space will be involved. Other schools closed when the school district went through its reconfiguration program to address declining enrolment have been in use for some time. Oak Hills in Westsyde has been home to Conseil Scholar Francophone, with students receiving their education in French. The district’s online KOOL program moved to the former Pineridge campus of Beattie School of the Arts in 2009, sharing the Sahali space with the international-student program. George Hilliard

elementary on the North Shore has a daycare provider, a music school and the Big Little Science Centre, which moved into the building in 2011. Ralph Bell elementary in Valleyview houses several day-care providers who were moved there when the district adopted full-day kindergarten and needed to relocate day cares in other schools in the city. They consolidated them at the Valleyview facility. Part of the Chase annex, also closed during reconfiguration, is being used by that community’s museum staff to provide space for res-

toration of artifacts damaged when the museum was hit by fire in 2011, Stretch said, and discussions are ongoing with the town council about use for the rest of the building. The rental agreements with the city are for $1 a year, but the municipal government then takes on all the operating costs for the structures. That amount can add up to between $35,000 and $50,00 a year, Stretch said, which is a saving to the school district. Having occupants also reduces vandalism and deterioration that naturally happens when buildings sit empty.

Copper thieves no match for Kamloops coppers Two men were arrested on Tuesday, Jan. 29, after they were found at the scene of a copperwire theft at the BC Hydro yard on McGill Road at about 4:50 a.m. Security guards saw two men enter the yard and called Kamloops RCMP. The suspects used a ladder to climb a fence and then threw copper wire over it. The two were apprehended as they walked from the compound toward the Home Depot on Hillside Drive. Both men are known

to Kamloops Mounties. Police are recom-

Domtar workers set to vote on company layoff proposal By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Unionized workers at Domtar vote today (Jan. 31) on a plan the company says will minimize the impact of a coming line shutdown at the pulp mill. Domtar spokesperson Bonny Skene would not provide details of the adjustment agreement the company has proposed, but said it’s meant to alleviate some of the difficulties employees are facing. In December, Domtar announced it would permanently close its A-line mill. The line produces sawdust pulp, which the company says is less competitive than the pulp produced

from softwood on the mills B-line. The shutdown will see 125 workers laid off by March, 107 of them union members. Doug Cumming, interim president of Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada Local 10-B, also declined to provide details of the agreement, which goes to a vote this afternoon and evening. “I haven’t been able to speak to all the members myself yet. “We’re going through crew by crew and there’s a significant number of guys that are coming into work tomorrow that haven’t heard anything about it yet,” he said. “It’s better for them if they hear it from us.”

Cause of Knutsford barn fire may never be determined By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The cause of a barn fire in Knutsford earlier this month may never be determined, according to Kamloops Fire Rescue Insp. Dan Funk. The Jan. 2 fire on Running Horse Ranch Road destroyed a barn and a quantity of hay stored to feed horses

through the winter. Funk said he has looked at two potential causes — spontaneous combustion and an issue with the truck the rancher had just used to move bales of hay. The vehicle, a John Deere Gator, has not had any recalls based on issues with its exhaust, but similar models by other manufacturers have, Funk said. The recalls involve a situation in which wet hay clings to the exhaust and,

once dry, ignites. Funk said the rancher used the Gator for the hay, drove it to feed horses and then parked it at the barn and went into the house. A short time later, someone knocked at the door to tell him the barn was on fire. “So, I’m waiting for more information right now,” Funk said, “but, it may have to go down as undetermined.”

SPRING NOT ROBIN WINTER YET

250-851-9380 | 1-888-900-9380

Is spring just around the corner? While exploring the outdoors, KTW reader Ron Edwards came across this robin staying warm by catching some rays in sub-zero temperatures. The appearance of the bird is, alas, not a sign of spring coming as small numbers of robins will often overwinter in the Kamloops area. Twenty-one were counted in the recent Kamloops Christmas bird count.

Kamloops voters won’t notice much change in the latest update to B.C.’s federal electoral boundaries now under review by the House of Commons.

TRU student union adds two positions Two new positions will be on the ballot for the Thompson Rivers University Students Union (TRUSU) in March, thanks to a successful annual general meeting. TRUSU president Dustin McIntyre, himself a three-year veteran of executive positions with the union, said he was delighted to see 136 students attend the AGM on Thursday, Jan. 24.

McIntyre said he believes creating the two new representatives — one for graduate students and one for gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer and trans students — galvanized students to come out and ensure the positions were created. The meeting also approved long timelines for accepting nominations and voting for the various union positions.

Arlene Sharron ROSTRON

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

NICHOLAS Charles (Chuck) Nicholas born April 14, 1928 passed away January 24, 2013.

Arlene Sharron (Coutts) Rostron passed away Friday, January 25, 2013 in Kamloops, BC. She is survived by her children Janine McCurdy (Noel) of Calgary, and Ben Rostron (Catherine) of Edmonton, and grandchildren Nicole McCurdy, and Sarah and Alex Rostron, dear companion Kenneth Price of Dublin, California, nieces Gaylene Burkett (Tom), Jill Stangeland (Layne), Trisha Ledinski, Leanne Stote, former husband John Rostron (Linda), and cousin Larry Maloski. She is predeceased by her sister Lillian Price and brother Wally Coutts. Arlene was born July 2, 1940 in Regina, and was raised in Burnaby, BC. She moved with her family to Calgary, and later to Toronto, and then settled in Kamloops in 1992. Arlene took an active part in the community and organized events such as the Canada Summer Games and various national and international curling bonspiels. She was passionate about travel (including Africa and China), and in recent years she cruised with Ken to destinations such as Hawaii, Costa Rica, Panama, and Alaska. She was extraordinarily multi-talented and interesting, with many hobbies and many dear friends. Arlene loved animals, especially her cats. She was a crafter and cook, enjoyed lawn bowling and curling, undertook genealogical research on the Rostron and Coutts families, and knew the words to lots of songs. Arlene will be missed very much.

Chuck had a very fulfilling life doing a variety of things. From being raised on a dairy farm, to working at Associated Screen News in the movie industry, joining the RCAF, working at CPR, a firefighter and his favorite job - long haul trucking. He also worked on the construction of the Mica Dam and the Coquihalla Highway.

The family would like to especially thank Dr. James Howie, and Heather, for all of their help in the past months.

As per Chuck’s request, there will be no service.

A gathering of family and friends to celebrate Arlene will be held on Friday, February 1, 2013 from 1 pm until 3 pm in the Tea Room at Schoening Funeral Services, 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC.

He had many and varied hobbies from hunting and fishing to woodworking, leatherworking, gardening, gunsmithing, photography and the great talent of being able to fix and maintain anything electrical. Chuck is survived by Kerry, his loving wife of 42 years and their children Nanci (Darren) & Adam (Tiffany) and his children Shirley (Ted), Tony (Deb), Georgia (Bruno), Lincoln (Maureen), Mary, Margi, Michelle (Frank), Danielle, and 23 grandchildren and 4 great grandchildren. Chuck is predeceased by his children Sharron and Joe Nicholas and his ex-wife Zora. We would like to thank all the staff at Overlander Extended Care Hospital for all the excellent care given to Chuck as well as their kindness and support.

Should friends desire, donations in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Society, Box 277, Kamloops, BC V2C 5K6 would be appreciated. Cremation entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service, 250.374.1454.

NORDSTROM It is with deep regret that the family of Audrey Patricia Harwood Nordstrom announce her passing on January 13, 2013 after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Audrey, a loving, caring, and generous mother, teacher, and friend, passed peacefully surrounded by members of her immediate family. Audrey taught many students over the years in Revelstoke, Lytton, and Kamloops, retiring from the Kamloops school district in 1981. She filled her retirement enjoying golf at the Quilchena Golf Course, singing with the Kamloops Happy Choristers, attending the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, researching the family tree, gardening, and spoiling her children and grandchildren. Pre-deceased by her 2nd husband, Doug Haywood, in 1994, she is survived by son Laurie (Sandra); daughter Mavis, son Alan (Gwen), grandchildren Lauren, Mickayla, Brianna, and Caleb as well as many extended family members of the Haywood family. Audrey was known for her generosity, continually upbeat and caring manner and will be sorely missed by her family, friends, and many wayward youths she gave a home to in their time of need. Our world is a sadder place without her presence. Audrey had requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society which she supported her entire life. A service celebrating Audrey’s exemplary life will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home at 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, B.C. on February 2, 2013 at two o’clock in the afternoon.

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

GLOBAL VIEWS Silver & Gold

Have we seen victory in Mali?

A

S USUAL, A well-trained Western army has gone through a fierce-looking, but virtually untrained force of African rebels like a hot knife through butter. Two weeks ago, the northern half of Mali was under the control of Islamist militants, whose forces were starting to advance into southern Mali. So, France decided on very short notice to send troops and combat aircraft to its former colony in West Africa. Today, every town in the north of Mali is under French control and surviving rebels have fled into the desert. The easy part of the intervention is now over. It’s not surprising that the French military intervention was an instant success. The Islamist rebels, like most African paramilitaries (and quite a few African armies, too), did not even know the basic combat drills every infantryman in a Western army has practised until they are second nature. But, now come three tasks that are considerably more difficult. The first is to deploy an African Union-backed military force, made up of units from armies elsewhere in West Africa, to take over from the French. You can’t just hand the recaptured towns back to Mali’s own army, which is so incompetent and rotted by politics that it would promptly lose them back to the militants. This force, dubbed the International Support Mission to Mali, has the unanimous blessing of the United Nations Security Council. International donors met in Ethiopia and pledged $455.53 million to pay for this force. Mali’s many neighbours — it has open desert borders with seven other West African countries — have already identified the units they are going to send. But, it’s going to be weeks or months before those African units actually arrive because many of them aren’t very well trained either. French and British troops are being sent to train some of them before

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH they even set foot in Mali. In the meantime, the north of Mali will really be entirely under French military rule. This means there will be none of the looting, rape and murder that tends to follow the Malian army’s arrival in town, but the French troops are very foreign indeed. They are not even Muslims, in a country that is nine-tenths Muslim. They were welcomed as liberators when they rolled into the northern towns in the last few days, but if they stay for too long, they will become first unpopular, then

hated. That’s just the way things work. Once African troops replace the French, the next task is to rebuild the democratic government of Mali, which was destroyed last March by a military coup. The interim president, Dioncounda Traore, says he wants to hold elections in July but, behind the scenes, the greedy young officers who made the coup still hold real power. They will have to be sent back to their barracks before elections take place — and that will not be easy. The third task is to win the very different kind of war that now starts in Mali. Retaking occupied towns was easy. Now that the militants have scattered across the vast deserts of northern Mali, they will launch a different kind of war – a war of the shadows, conducted by raids, bomb attacks and assassinations.

Countries can survive for decades with that kind of low-intensity war happening in the background, but the only way to shrink it to a manageable level is to make a political deal. This is not impossible in Mali because the Islamist fanatics actually hijacked the revolution from their former allies, the Tuareg separatists. Most of the people in the north are Tuaregs, desert-dwelling people of Berber stock and nomadic heritage who are ethnically, culturally and linguistically distinct from the black African majority in southern Mali. Many of them support the separatist movement that wanted to create an independent Tuareg state in northern Mali, but few actually share the extreme religious views of Islamist militants. The two groups made an alliance to drive the Malian army out of the north, but the Islamists then turned on their allies

and seized absolute power for themselves. Their harsh rule was resented by most people, however, and so it should be possible to isolate the Islamists if the Malian government is willing to make a deal that gets the Tuareg separatists on its side. They won’t get independence, but they would probably settle for a large degree of autonomy for the north. It will be hard to get a new Malian government that is elected almost entirely by the votes of southerners (90 per cent of the population lives in the south) to make that concession, but the alternative is a long, draining guerilla war in the north. Was the French military intervention in Mali necessary? Yes, in the view of the United Nations, the African Union, and most Malians. Was it a success? That remains to be seen.

How we undermine our mental health

W

E HAD an interesting question the other day: Are there things we do routinely or by habit every day that undermine our mental health in the same way bad habits undermine our physical health? What a great question. We no longer take our physical health for granted. We know we need to watch our diet, our exercise, our drinking and smoking and there are countless other ways our knowledge and behaviour related to physical health has changed during the last 20 years or so. What about mental health? We have improved in this area, too, but not nearly to the degree or in the ways we have for physical well-being. So, what are the top 10 ways we undermine our own mental health? Here they are, in no particular order:

• Alcohol and drug use: Of course substances are mood -altering, but there is far more to mental-health impact. Addiction to anything can ruin relationships and cause immense stress in a person’s life. When health is negatively impacted, so is mental health. • Diet and exercise: The reverse is also true in that, when our health is positively impacted, so, too, is our mental health. If you can combine regular exercise with people you like to be with in a fun way, you are doing three positive things for your mental health. If we eat too many carbs, the sugar highs and low impact on mood in unhealthy ways — and

there are many more negative impacts than this. • Lack of sleep: Lack of sleep impacts our health and our brain in ways we are only now beginning to understand. The impact of sleep deprivation can be devastating to health in general and brain health in particular. This can never be good for mental health. • Too much stress: The key is “too much” stress because some stress is actually quite normal and healthy. How much is too much? When stress impacts your physical well-being (diet, sleep and so forth) and when it creates mental uneasiness for prolonged periods of time, it is too much. Each of us is different

and we need to pay attention to the little things our bodies are telling us. • Attitudes: People with a positive and cheerful outlook are happier and healthier. That’s a scientific fact. • Beliefs: If you have rigid rules about the way things “have to be” or “should be,” you could be setting yourself up for frustration and disappointment. ]Your beliefs about the world around you, and about yourself, need to be flexible, helpful and reassuring to help you live in a healthy way. Many people sort the world in terms of absolutes, such as “right or wrong” or “good and bad,” and, for most people, they do not differentiate between blame (which looks backward in time, where there is no control) and responsibility (which looks forward in time and where there is some control). • Coping skills: If

Unused or expired medications can be harmful to children of pets and can contaminate the environment if tossed in the trash or flushed down a toilet, said association president Ralph Lai.

you do not have the ability to handle stress, find ways to soothe your troubled mind when you are upset, handle anger or disappointment in healthy ways or juggle competing responsibilities, you may need to develop those skills. • Brain injuries and brain health: The brain is the organ of your intellect and mental health and needs particular types of nutrition, blood flow (exercise) and mental exercise (puzzles and games) to be healthy. • Relationships: We need relationships that are close and trustworthy in order to develop, grow and have meaning in our lives. It is not an accident that, when one person in a multi-decade relationship passes away, their spouse sometimes passes way relatively soon afterward. • Fun & laughter: Laughter releases endorphins and having fun

The TNRD is partnering with the association because of the positive environmental effects it will have, according to TNRD environmental-services director Peter Hughes.

T

HE TRU WOLFPACK women’s basketball team took a huge step last season in making the playoffs for the first time in program history. Now, head coach Scott Reeves has his team primed to leave that footprint in the dust. “We’ve raised the bar culturally at TRU for the women’s basketball program, so that playoffs are an expectation,” said Reeves, now in his sixth year in charge of the Pack. “How far we go in the playoffs, that’s something we have to learn.” TRU is 12-5 on the season — eclipsing the high-water mark of nine wins set in the 20112012 campaign — and has already clinched a playoff spot ahead of tonight’s (Jan. 31) home date with the Trinity Western University (TWU) Spartans (5-11). Game time tonight is 6 p.m., as it is on Friday, Feb. 1, for the rematch. Both tilts — the last regular-season home games on the 2012-2013 slate — will be played at the Tournament Capital Centre. The Pack still have an outside chance of earning a home playoff game, but “there are many mathematical scenarios that have to happen,” Reeves said, and his charges are focused instead on tonight’s matchup. “I’ve really done the old cliché thing with our team and got them to buy into the one game at a time thing,” the WolfPack bench boss said.

There is at least one somewhat simple scenario that would see TRU host its first ever Canada West postseason showdown. If the WolfPack swept their remaining games — two against the Spartans, two against the Fraser Valley Cascades (133) and one against the UBC Okanagan Heat (5-12) — and Victoria swept UBC on the last weekend of the season, then TRU would clinch the Pacific Division and host a playoff game. (That’s assuming UBC is still atop the division heading into the final weekend after sweeping Mount Royal this weekend and UNBC next weekend). Again, the odds are against the aforementioned scenario coming to fruition, meaning the tilts against TWU will likely be the last Canada West games on home turf for three WolfPack fifth-year players — Diane Schuetze, Tracy Kocs and Jen Ju. “The fact I won’t play another league game in this gym is crazy to think after five years,” said Schuetze, who ranks among the nation’s best in rebounds, blocks and scoring. Reeves will be hardpressed to replace the departing trio. “Diane has worked extremely hard to get to where she is today,” Reeves said. “She is a great ambassador for TRU. Jen has developed into a pure scorer and is energetic leading for our team. Tracy always brings a competitive drive to every game. She has been very consistent in her scoring and

rebounding. All three of our fifth years have contributed greatly to the success we are having right now.” The graduating players will be honoured, along with their families, at the game on Friday. TRU boasts a 6-1 record on home court this season and two more wins in the Den would help the Pack climb up the Pacific Division ranks. “We used to talk about how we should have a chance at home because we’re sleeping in our own beds, and we did all these things that were all peripheral things,” Reeves said. “Now, we’re talking about how good teams — playoff teams, teams that compete day in and day out — always protect their home court.”

Pribilsky bids adieu Kevin Pribilsky, the lone fifth-year member of the WolfPack men’s basketball team, will play his last game in Kamloops on Friday. He followed head coach Scott Clark to TRU from Simon Fraser University before the 2009-2010 season. “I have always felt that coach Clark has always taken good care of his players,” Pribilsky said. “He cares about them. I think that is really important. He always tries to not only make you a better basketball player, but a better person and human being.” Clark could not say enough about what Pribilsky has meant to him and to the men’s basketball program. “He comes from

a great family,” said Clark, whose team tips off against the Spartans at 8 p.m. on Thursday and Friday at the TCC. “They did an unbelievable job of raising him. I think everyone in the athletic department — staff and other athletes — knows Kev as a person of character. “He is Kevin Pribilsky in the classroom, on the basketball floor and at home. His character doesn’t change. He is what he is and will always be that. People are attracted to quality people like that.” TRU (6-11) is still in the hunt for a postseason berth, but has no chance of hosting a playoff game. Pribilsky will be honoured before Friday’s game.

The Kamloops Long Blades spent the weekend racing at the B.C. Long Track Championships, held at the Pomeroy Centre in Fort St John. The event was a qualifier for the Canadian Age Class Long Track Championships, set to run on Feb. 9 and Feb. 10 in Winnipeg. In the T2T 11 category, Jessica McQueen won silver. Competing in the T2T 12 division, Alexander Demishkevich won gold, Holly Antifay won silver and Dana Coulter placed fifth. Yolaine Kampman had a strong performance in the T2T 13 division, placing fourth. Maria Demishkevich won bronze in the T2T 14 category. Sylvie Lloyd placed sixth in the junior ladies division. In the junior men’s division, Kris Pynten won bronze, Dominic Villeneuve was fifth and Rylan DeBeeld finished seventh. McQueen, Antifay, Coulter, Kampman, Lloyd, Pynten, Villeneuve, DeBeeld, Alexander Demishkevich and Maria Demishkevich qualified for nationals.

The record was formerly held by Sara’s older sister, Tori, who finished in 43.5 seconds in 2010. Eric, racing in the T2T 14 division, had two first-place and two second-place finishes. Sara qualified for the junior long-track nationals, to be held in Quebec from Friday, Feb. 1, to Sunday, Feb. 3, while Eric qualified for the Canadian Age Class Championships.

Nordic skiing,Viking style Don’t be alarmed, that’s just a bunch of Vikings on skis. The 14th annual Wells Gray Birchleg, a cross-country skiing event held this year on the Candle Creek trails near Clearwater, is set for Sunday, Feb. 3. Viking and Nordic warrior costumes are encouraged and there will be prizes for the best outfit. Participants will have three courses from which to choose, all with differing

degrees of difficulty. The Birchleg commemorates an incident that occurred during a civil war in Norway in 1204. Two Viking warriors on skis carried the son of their murdered king across two mountain ranges to safety. The Birchleg gets its name from the birch-bark leggings they wore.

MORTGAGE MATTERS

Titans host basketball weekend

Credit Score and Home Buying Part I Does living a debt-free lifestyle make you the best candidate for a mortgage? You manage your money well and you purchase only what you can pay cash for. You have no credit cards or loans of any kind! You must be what every lender dreams of when it comes to obtaining a mortgage, right? Well, not so fast… Let’s take a look at one of the key aspects of lending: your credit score. When applying for a mortgage, your credit score weighs heavily when it comes to the mortgage rates you will be offered, the lenders who will work with you or whether you will be denied in your search for a loan. In essence, it can make or break your mortgage application. By definition, a credit score is simply a measure of your proven habits of repaying debt. For that reason, you must repay something to have a positive score, like credit card payments, car payments and small bank loans to name a few. People who do not have or use credit cards and insist on paying cash for everything are often surprised when they are refused for a mortgage because they believe their habit of paying cash should reflect “good credit”. Credit scores are rated on a point system, ranging from 0 (no credit), to a maximum of 900 (perfect credit), with the general minimum credit needed for a mortgage sitting at around 600 points. A person who pays cash for all things will likely have a 0 credit score because they have zero history of repaying debt. So what does this mean to a first time homebuyer? Do your credit card repayment patterns reveal good things about you? As a rule of thumb, a person should use two credit cards regularly and pay them off each month to build a positive credit score. A repayment for a bill as little as $10 will build your score and produce a proven habit of repaying debt. There are two major credit score suppliers in Canada: Equifax and Transunion. Each has a credit education center for those who would like to do further reading: www.equifax.com/home/en ca • www.transunion.ca Equifax offers a free mailed copy of your credit report at www.equifax.com/contact_us/en_ca. Both these links are found under resources on my website www.mortgagebuilder.ca. Look for Mortgage Matters “Credit Score and Home Buying Part II” when I will examine several factors that lower credit score and boost credit score for those looking to maximize their score prior to a home purchase. For more specific information on credit scores and home buying, please contact me via phone at 250-682-6077 or by e-mail at steve.bucher@migroup.ca.

The senior girls South Kamloops Titans basketball team won three games on the weekend to move to 6-0 in Okanagan league play. The Titans downed Rutland of Kelowna 88-32 on Friday, Jan. 25, and followed the victory with wins over Mt. Boucherie of West Kelowna, 84-32, and Penticton, 87-29, on Saturday, Jan. 26. Emma Wolfram led the way against Rutland with 26 points and 17 rebounds. Emma Piggin, Daylynne Agarand and Liz Anderson each hit double figures in scoring, netting 15, 14 and 11 points, respectively. Piggin led the Titans with 18 points and nine rebounds against Mt. Boucherie, with Anna Frenkel — 15 points and seven steals — hot on her tail. Wolfram scored 14 points and Emily Vilac netted 10. Ashley Lamoureux dished out 11 assists in the game and added another nine helpers in the afternoon contest against Penticton. Frenkel led the charge of five players in double figures against Penticton, with 16 points and eight rebounds.

Becca Peters also netted 14 points for the Titans on the weekend. The Titans were without Maya Olynyk and Mieke Dumont, both of whom are out with injuries. Dumont is expected to return from a sprained ankle in time for the Okanagan Championship in May, while Olynyk is recovering from a hip strain and is expected to play this weekend at the Heritage Classic in Mission. In senior boys play, South Kam posted a 2-1 weekend record — losing 65-62 to Penticton before bouncing back with wins over Mt. Boucherie, 74-72, and Rutland, 81-76. NorKam secondary

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Victor Micallef remembers the moment he realized how powerful the human voice can be. He was just a teenager, sitting in the audience for a performance of Les Miserables in Toronto with friends, when the music touched him to the point he felt tears welling up in his eyes. “It was therapeutic,” the member of The Tenors said. “It was just so powerful.” He has seen the same reaction at concerts he, Fraser Walters, Clifton Murray and Remegio Pereira have performed,

when the combination of four tenor voices creates musical magic. While the Torontoborn son of Maltese immigrants started playing piano at the age of four, Micallef wasn’t sure about singing. “I love to sing,” he said, “but I used to get so nervous performing when I was younger.

“My dad gave me the big kick, though, and had me singing at church.” Music studies followed at two universities in Ontario, where he focused on vocal performance. From there, it was off to Florence, Italy, in 1998, where he planned to spend no more than six months studying with renowned tenor Franco

Paligazzi. Two years later, opera was his life and Europe was his home base. In 2004, Micallef joined the Ensemble Studio of the Canadian Opera Company and, eventually, the decision to join what was originally known as The Canadian Tenors. The renamed Tenors will be in Kamloops on Friday, Feb. 8, for a concert at Interior Savings Centre. Micallef said his group does more than sing opera; concerts include pop songs as well, albeit with the group’s own arranging. “We love to arrange,” Micallef said, “and we

all write and we all play instruments. “We like to explore how an arrangement is created and put our fingerprint on it.” This is the first time the group has recorded songs each of them wrote, Micallef said — and that led to its own nerve-wracking experience. “We had [record producer] David Foster come to listen because we needed a fresh ear,” Micallef said. “And he warned us that we’re friends, but that was when he was wearing his performing hat. When he was in recording mode, he told us it’s a different hat and he would

be dead honest.” Foster listened to the 16 songs being considered for an album. “For two hours, he said nothing. For the first five songs, he was making notes,” Micallef said, “and, at the end, he said, ‘I love it’. “He has a keen ear and a very critical ear and this was a huge step for us. We knew this was make or break time.” Fans range in age from the young — “we have had four-year-olds in the audience singing along” — to seniors. While they are each a tenor, they are also unique. “In the palette of tenor voices, there are so

many different colours of tenor,” Micallef said. “Sting is a tenor. Freddy Mercury was a tenor. “Just because tenor has been sold always geared to the classical tenor, people can expect that, but we like to show the pop side of the tenor, as well.” That’s why the show will have something for everyone, Micallef said, “and there’s never a dull moment. “You know, when we started, the audience was older. But, the next time we would go to a place, they were bringing their sons and daughters and now, if we go back, their grandchildren are there, too.”

Little Love Song needs your votes Jodi Doidge is looking for some online love. Just enough to push her Little Love Song onto the stage at this year’s Variety’s Got Talent competition. The Kamloops singer-songwriter entered the contest, which has already chosen nine entrants to head to the finals. The 10th spot will be decided by an online vote and Doidge is one of 11 performers vying for that spot. It’s the first time she has entered, although she’s been singing and writing songs since she was a teenager. Doidge took her music to the public about a decade ago when she started to perform, although music isn’t her day job. It’s her passion. Doidge describes her music as a mix of pop and folk, but others have told her there is also a strong country influence. Once the 10th finalist is identified, the next step is to the stage at River Rock Theatre in Richmond on Feb. 9, where they will perform in front of a panel of music experts. Voting continues to Sunday, Feb. 3. To vote, go online to variety.bc.ca/talent.htm.

A&E The button to go to the voting link is at the bottom of the page.

Book on Broncos will be turned into film Veteran Kamloops sports reporter Gregg Drinnan’s book on the Swift Current Broncos hockey team will be made into a movie. Sudden Death: The Incredible Saga of the 1986 Swift Current Broncos is the true story of the team that, in a game-day bus accident, saw four of its players die. The team rebounded and won the Memorial Cup two years later. Drinnan’s book came together with the help of Bronco defenceman Bob Wildie and Lessa Culp, the only female witness to the crash. Trilight Entertainment will produce the film, with writer-director Rob King (Corner Gas) adapting the book into a screenplay.

Festival is coming to Kamloops as part of the Kamloops Film Society’s series. The presentation is designed to promote the Kamloops Art Gallery’s current exhibitions, Western and Sonia Cornwall: Roundup. Three films will be shown at the

Paramount Theatre, 503 Victoria St., on Thursday, Feb. 7, starting at 7 p.m.: The People of the Kattawapiskad River, directed by Alanis Obomsawin; Smoke Traders; and Savage, directed by Lisa Jackson. Admission is $8 at the door.

TRAVEL

Taking to the hills of India in a ‘toy’ train By Margaret Deefholts STAFF REPORTER travelwriterstales.com

“Aaay, col’ drrrinks, fofcorn, chiffsss...” A vendor grins at me through the window bars of our “toy” train as it pants resolutely over a winding narrowgauge track. Snack tray slung over his neck, he is swinging adroitly from one carriage to the next along the footboards. My son Glenn and daughter Susan are with me as we chug our way to Matheran, a tranquil hill station that lies about 90 kilometres out of Mumbai. For the past week, we have been in the grip of the city, with its crowds, humidity and unrelenting clamour. Matheran, India’s smallest, but no less charming, hill station, with its sylvan glades and rustic trails, will be a welcome change. Founded in the mid1800s, Matheran, which translates loosely as “large forest on top,” has no paved streets or cars and, therefore, no traffic intersections or gasoline fumes. The only motor road from Mumbai halts at a parking lot on the outskirts of the town; from there, one travels either by hand-pulled rickshaws, on horse-back or on foot. The entire journey from Mumbai by train takes about five hours and, having switched from the main MumbaiPune railway line to the Matheran Hill Railway at Neral, we are now in

a tiny carriage sitting shoulder-to-shoulder with a young couple and their two children. The boy who appears to be about 10, peppers his father with questions, while his younger sister croons a little tune to herself as she gazes out of the window. At this initial stage of our ascent, the terrain is bare rock, interspersed with scrub and weary, stunted trees, their leaves ashen with dust. We pass a signboard alongside the track that gasps, “Ah What A Sharp Curve” and the train then dives briefly into One Kiss tunnel. The vendor has moved on and another face peers through the window. It belongs to Mike, a blonde-bearded American. He, too, is hitching a ride on the footboard, clinging limpet-like to the window bars. If our compartment wasn’t so cramped, he could have joined us, but he shrugs: “Aw, no prob! Train’s moving slower than a Sunday sermon anyways.” The miniature train sighs to a halt at a small station, Jummapatti, halfway up the hillside, and passengers get out to stretch their legs. The platform swarms with hawkers selling trinkets, bottled drinks, tea, coffee and snacks. A wrinkled old woman whines at the window and I drop a few coins into her palms. Her smile is toothless and ingratiating. On the final stage of its ascent, the train

snakes along a narrow shelf hewn into the hillside. Mike, no longer nonchalant about riding the footboard, squeezes his eyes shut. “Sheeit!” he says feelingly, “nobody told me about this!” Gripping the window bars, his knuckles like bleached pebbles, he is suspended over a sheer 1,500-foot drop of unforgiving rock face. The plains below are a quilt of green paddy fields stitched by thin, meandering streams that glint silver in the strong sunlight. The train takes a turn and, ahead of us, about a

Curve ahead! The entire journey to Matheran from Mumbai by train takes about five hours. Margaret Deefholts photo

hundred feet up, I catch a glimpse of the wooded plateau that is Matheran — looking for all the world like a head of broccoli sprouting on a stem of fissured rock. Soft breezes set the trees whispering, and the air feels cool and fresh. As groups of holidaymakers pause to wave and shout greetings, the train, in a burst of confidence, puts on a terrific show of speed. We steam into Matheran station with aplomb.

*INDICATES GUARANTEED DEPARTURE.

As you may have heard, RIH is currently recruiting physicians in our Anesthesiology Department. We’ve had two anesthetists recently leave Kamloops and another take a leave of absence last month, however we have 14 anesthetists remaining to support surgery and acute and chronic pain management. The Department is working diligently to secure additional coverage among their members and with locum physicians to mitigate the impact on patients as much as possible. Their efforts have been successful so far and are much appreciated by us all. Physician recruitment is a challenge not only in B.C. but across the country. We’ve been recruiting aggressively, including postings on betterhere.ca, our recruitment website – ads which I’m pleased to say have attracted a lot of interest. Interior Health has stepped up its recruiting support, policies and structure over the last few years. And of course,

RIH and Kamloops have a lot to offer prospective physicians. In fact, in the last year and a half, RIH has successfully recruited close to 30 physicians from a variety of specialties, with several more currently giving Kamloops serious consideration. Our role with UBC’s Southern Medical School program continues to expand which also serves to aid in recruitment. I’m excited about plans for UBC to place eight Family Practice Residents in Kamloops next year. These success stories speak to the quality of care at RIH and the quality of life here in the Thompson. And of course there are exciting changes to look forward to as planning moves forward for the $80 million clinical services building at RIH. On another note, I’m pleased to announce the RIH Foundation is launching a series of MiniMED information sessions for the public. The Àrst will be held at RIH on February 21st and will focus on Building Self Esteem in Children. These are free sessions and I encourage anyone interested to call the Foundation OfÀce at (250) 3142325 for more information - these are bound to be highly informative and engaging sessions with local medical professionals.

FAITH

Bringing down roofs to raise up needy lives

H

OW FAR would someone go to help his friend in dire need or a crisis in life? The Gospel of Mark relates an incident in which four friends engaged in a challenging act that rehabilitated a buddy of theirs from a life of uselessness to one of all-round productivity. While Jesus was speaking in a crowded home one day, a listener jumped to his feet and interrupted him in the middle of his sermon. He pointed an angry finger at a wooden stick poking through the ceiling of the crowded home. Other leaders rose angrily to watch the drama taking place in front of their eyes.

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH The sticks of the roof were breaking and an ever-widening hole appeared in the ceiling, spraying chips of clay and dust over the people below as they moved for cover. Within minutes, the onlookers watched four pairs of hands come through the opening, removing roof tiles. Soon those hands lowered into the room a stretcher bearing a man who lay motionless. The man was hurt-

ing in more ways than one. He was suffering from severe paralysis resulting from damage to the brain or spinal cord. He was incapable of doing anything for himself and utterly depended upon the help of the friends. But, his need for wholeness went beyond his physical problem. The story reveals he was also hurting spiritually and was a sinner in need of forgiveness. A closer look at the four men who brought their friend to Jesus reveals they were just ordinary men who had a friend in need of help from Jesus. How can these men help us in the work of bringing our friends to Jesus? First, these friends

had high-visibility faith. They really believed Jesus would do something for their invalid friend. And, Jesus began ministering to the sick man when he saw his friends’ faith. Their faith didn’t have any halo or a large “F” written on their foreheads. It was much more down-to-earth than that. Jesus looked at the hole in the ceiling, the chunks of clay and dust covering the floor, four sweat-stained faces staring down at Him and a man in need of wholeness at His feet. Now, that’s faith. Jesus associated faith with doing something, not just sitting still and mouthing sweet-sounding prom-

ises. We find the same idea in James 2:14-26, which states “faith without action is dead.” Secondly, we learn from these four men that their love for the sick friend cost them something. It cost them personal time and, perhaps, money to repair the damage to the roof. They also ran a high risk of being ridiculed for their actions. Busting the ceiling in middle of a high-level religious discourse is not generally acceptable behaviour. In spite of the costs involved, the men viewed their friend with compassion and said, “It’s worth it to get him to Jesus.” Finally, notice that Jesus rewarded their faith and love by minis-

tering to him. To the astonishment of the self-righteous scribes, Jesus pronounced the invalid’s sins forgiven. Then, Jesus underscored his words of forgiveness by restoring the man’s physical health. Faith and love, which paid the price, resulted in wholeness for a man with four faithful friends. All of us have at least one friend who needs Jesus. Maybe our friend is not paralyzed or living a life of gross sin, but even people in best of health, living moral lives, need wholeness only Jesus can give. As we think about our desire to bring our friends or family members to Jesus, let’s ask ourselves two ques-

tions: • Do we really believe Jesus can make our friends whole? • Am I willing to pay the cost to bring my friend to Jesus? Wouldn’t it be great if Jesus could see our active faith and minister to our friends as he did for the four men? Let us stand ready to bust a hole in any roof to make it happen. narayanmitra@ hotmail.com

In a small bowl, whisk bran and germ together with flour, baking soda and baking powder. Whisk together buttermilk and half & half. In a large bowl, cream butter using an electric beater until butter is very light. Add brown sugar and mix on medium-low for 2 minutes, until fluffy. Scrape down bowl. Add vanilla, egg, honey and molasses and beat until just combined. Working by hand, using a rubber spatula, stir in half of the flour mixture, followed by half of the buttermilk mixture. Repeat until combined. Fold in raisins and pumpkin seeds, then gently fold in chopped plums. Divide between 12 paper-lined regular-sized muffin cups. Place in oven and immediately reduce heat to 325F. Bake for 28 minutes, or until a tester comes out clean. Remove from tins and set on a baking rack to cool completely.

WEEKLY CROSSWORD

Skill-training help for TRU Thompson Rivers University has received $1.39 million in skills-training equipment from the provincial government. The type of equipment slated for new purchase or replacement at Thompson Rivers University — unless otherwise donated from industry partners — includes equipment such as a skidder, an excavator, a metal shear, a steam boiler and a backhoe. John Yap, the province’s minister of advanced education, innovation and technology, Terry Lake, MLA for Kamloops-North Kamloops, and Kevin Krueger, MLA for Kamloops-South Thompson, were at the univer-

sity on Friday, Jan. 25, for the announcement. “The ministry’s commitment towards the purchase of much-needed equipment for our skilled trades programs is very much appreciated,” said TRU president and vice-chancellor Alan Shaver. “Our programs have a long history of preparing youth and adult learners for career success in British Columbia. “This investment will help ensure our instructors and students have up-to-date learning tools so we can continue to meet the demands of industry with excellent graduates.”

AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, unwind from pressures at the office with a little respite. A long weekend and some time spent at a nearby resort are just what you need to recharge the batteries.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, sweating the small stuff could cause you to miss the bigger picture. Don’t worry too much about minor inconveniences, and you’ll be happier for it.

PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, it has been an uphill battle, but you are finally at the crest of that tall mountain. Now you can coast for a little while.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, you might not be able to please everyone all of the time, but that doesn’t mean you can’t try. Friends, family members and coworkers will appreciate the effort. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, confidence when making tough decisions will inspire loyalty in those around you. Make these decisions carefully and explain them clearly to others.
