Parking rate hike could build parkade By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
PIG RIG HITS THE ROAD By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER
The taste of truck-side cuisine grows in Kamloops
T BEGAN WITH A POTLUCK AND A SMOKED PIG. Cathy Obertowich and Joe Thompson were casting around for a business idea when they were asked to bring a dish to a housewarming party. The couple, longtime fans of smoking their own meat, settled on a 10-pound pulled pork as their contribution — and other party guests went crazy for their dish. “Everyone was saying, ‘We have to get you to cater for us,” Obertowich said. While they toyed with opening a traditional restaurant, high upfront costs were a deterrent. Instead, they decided it was time to bring a big-city craze to the streets of the Tournament Capital and Cat and Joe’s Pig Rig — Kamloops’ first mobile food truck — was born. The truck will open for business at various locations around the city and on the Tk’emlups Indian Band reserve in March, offering pulled pork, burgers and bacon sandwiches, with an emphasis on local ingredients.
Pop some quarters in a parking meter and the cash supports a variety of city programs. But, if the city adopts a slate of new parking measures, more quarters it wants to add to the charge could go directly toward a parkade. City council got its first look at a plan to modernize parking in the downtown that swaps parking meters for digital pay stations and raises rates for the first time in 18 years. The plan is supported by downtown merchants and was originally pitched by the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association — but it comes with a condition. New revenue from the meter hike — up to $1 an hour from 50 cents as soon as the pay hubs arrive and rising to $1.50 by 2018 — must go into a reserve for parking improvements in the downtown. That has some councillors concerned. “I already hear it out there that there’s a big concern that people who live in Aberdeen or North Shore and they go downtown and pay for parking, all that money is going to stay downtown,” said Coun. Nelly Dever. She thinks the reserve should also
fund improvements that could take the pressure off the downtown, such as upgrading the Rivers Trail or running a shopping shuttle from Sahali. Councillors also quibbled over the naming of the fund, with Nancy Bepple suggesting the “transportation infrastructure fund,” which doesn’t tie it directly to projects downtown. Mayor Peter Milobar said the downtown business community wants the fund set up so a parkade gets built. “Let’s not kid ourselves. They’re not hoping this creates more bike paths somewhere else in the city,” he said. With the high cost of such a structure, Milobar said he doesn’t expect a future council would have a lot of extra cash to throw at other projects, should it commit to a parkade. But, council could leave the directions for the fund open, rather than committing to a specific type of project. Pat Wallace said council needs to be clear about where the extra parking cash is going and, in her opinion, it needs to fund a parkade. The public will get a chance to weigh in on the proposals on Tuesday, Feb. 6 at 7 p.m. at the Interior Savings Centre. Council will make a decision on the plans in March.

New plant key to Riversong success By Dale Bass
Mike Miltimore is pretty much running every day to keep up with the burgeoning success of his new Riversong guitar line â€” and is now looking at creating a production plant to keep up with orders that are coming from all corners of the world.
STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Mike Miltimore canâ€™t wait to get out of the basement. Itâ€™s been a fine location as he started production of his innovative Riversong guitar line, but itâ€™s time to move up â€” and out. Miltimore is working with consultants to finetune his guitar line and build a production plant following a successful presentation at the National Association of Music Merchants conference in Anaheim in January. â€œIt was pretty amazing,â€? Miltimore said of the visit, which saw him line up a few licensing deals and take a step toward a worldwide distribution opportunity. â€œI have to tell you, I sat back and went â€˜Oh gawd, what does all that mean now?â€™ â€? Thatâ€™s why heâ€™s hired some experts through the Business Development Bank of Canada â€” and theyâ€™ve already made some observations Miltimore said heâ€™s never thought about for the production line. â€œTo make the neck [of the guitar], they said weâ€™re taking like 1,000 steps to do it and theyâ€™d like to get us down to threeâ€? Miltimore said with a laugh. â€œThey asked us â€˜Arenâ€™t you tired at the end of the day?â€™ â€? Everything from the financial side to handling orders to designing a factory are being reviewed. With nothing more than some ideas in his head â€” which is also how his guitar design came about â€” Miltimore said heâ€™s envisioning an 8,000-square-foot plant either downtown or in
Valleyview, ideally a stand-alone building where he could move production and ramp up to meet the growing demand. Heâ€™s already got plenty of back-ordered requests to fill. There are many aspects to its construction that make the guitar unique but key is a neck that extends through the body, enhancing structural support. The neck is attached to the body at the top with
a pivot that can be adjusted with an Allen key, making setup easier and quicker than with a traditionally built guitar. One immediate change the lineâ€™s growth has caused is you wonâ€™t find Miltimore in his usual office at Leeâ€™s Music on Battle Street. Heâ€™s relocated into another area â€” and one of the first things he did there was to put up a map of the world on the wall to keep track of where his guitars are now going.
36 deaths identiďŹ ed at Kamloops Residential School By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
In the 49-year period reviewed by the Missing Childrenâ€™s Research group, 36 deaths were identified to have happened to students at the Kamloops Residential School. However, said research manager Alex Maas, her group expects that number is significantly higher than the true figure.
Backing this belief, Maas said, was the fact 153 deaths were identified to have happened at the Kuper Island Residential School in the South Gulf Islands during the same years. Across B.C., the project found 500 deaths in 18 residential schools during that timeframe, Maas said. Shane Gottfriedson, chief of the Tkâ€™emlups Indian Band, said that even if one child had died in a public
Can-Am* OUTLANDER 400 COURTESY OF:
school during that time period it would have led to calls for an investigation. Gottfriedson noted many of the deaths have been attributed to tuberculosis and yet no alarm bells ran during that timeframe about the health conditions of the schools. The group was established to find answers to questions raised in the House of Commons about deaths and disappearances in the resi-
Gottfriedson said he believes a deeper investigation is required into why children died or fled the schools. He added he welcomes the information being shared now because so many of the records kept at residential schools were incomplete or inaccurate. â€œWhatâ€™s being disclosed is something weâ€™ve been asking for for a long period of time,â€? he said.
dential schools. In the six years since it was established, the group has identified 3,000 student deaths across the country with ongoing research trying to determine more precise numbers. Gottfriedson said having the information become public now will further help Canadians understand the plight of the First Nations and the injustices that occurred in the schools.
Have your say on the arts centre Itâ€™s time to start drawing up the wishlist. The City of Kamloops is hosting a public input session on Saturday, Feb. 23, and is asking residents what they want to see in and around a new performing arts space. In January, Mayor Peter Milobar struck a committee to spearhead the project. While some plans were made for a performing-arts centre when the city drew up its cultural strategic plan about a decade ago, Milobar said the committee wants to make sure that work matches up with citizensâ€™ concerns today. â€œAt the time, there was talk around blackbox theatres, things like that,â€? he said. â€œIs that still a priority for the community or not? Itâ€™s trying to get a sense of the size and scope that people are looking for.â€? Milobar said people should think about what they look for in a concert venue when they visit other cities, so the Kamloopsâ€™ centre can attract tourists from out of town as well. The session runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Tournament Capital Centre, 910 McGill Rd.

Many in Motion is Back! Last year you ran, walked, rolled, swam and skated 40,000 kilometers in celebration of Rick Hansen’s journey around the world. Join us on February 25th as the City of Kamloops launches the 2nd Annual Many in Motion campaign, complete with giant dot-filled posters and bingo dabbers. Place your dots on the board for every kilometer you complete at the Tournament Capital Centre, Canada Games and Westsyde Pools, or at City ice rinks. The aim this year is 20,000 kilometers. Why did we choose this distance? Because 20,000 is the approximate number of people in the Thompson Nicola Regional District that live with some form of disability. The main goal of the 2013 Many in Motion campaign, along with encouraging people to keep moving, is to continue raising awareness about disabilities and accessibility in our community. Disabilities can be physical, cognitive, mental, sensory, emotional, and developmental, and may be present from birth, or occur during a person's lifetime. Throughout this year’s campaign, the City will highlight the efforts being made by the many wonderful organizations in Kamloops who work alongside those with a disability(ies). Information booths, posters and Did You Know? facts and figures will help tell the story of the progress being made and the challenges still being faced. Rick Hansen may not be coming to our city to finish the last lap of the 2013 Many in Motion campaign, but we will continue honoring his legacy by making sure that Kamloops is a leader in creating an ever more accessible and inclusive community for all.

No surprise â€” Liberals dislike NDP Dix ad-restriction idea By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A private memberâ€™s bill from NDP leader Adrian Dix that would restrict government advertising is getting strong support from his partyâ€™s local candidates, but mixed reviews from their Liberal counterparts. â€œI donâ€™t know if itâ€™s really necessary,â€? said Todd Stone, who is running for the Liberals in Kamloops-South Thompson. The bill, which Dix introduced in the legislature earlier this week, calls for the provinceâ€™s auditor general to review government ads to make sure theyâ€™re nonpartisan. It would also ban â€œnon-essentialâ€? government advertising in the four months prior to an election. The NDP has criticized the Liberal government for a multi-million-dollar ad campaign it ran to promote its jobs plan, which included a series of prime-time TV spots featuring Premier Christy Clark. Dixâ€™s bill, based on
similar legislation in place in Ontario, would block the government from using the name, voice or image of any MLA in ads, unless the advertisements are intended to run outside the province. Stone said the issue isnâ€™t whether the premier or other MLAs appear in government ads, but whether the ads are factual. â€œI think the government has a responsibility and an obligation to let people know about its programs,â€? he said. NDP candidate for Kamloops-South Thompson Tom Friedman said the use of Clark in the governmentâ€™s ads is clearly partisan â€” and thatâ€™s a problem. â€œI would say if the premier wasnâ€™t in the ads, it certainly would help. If theyâ€™re presenting factual information about their jobs plan, that would be fine,â€? he said. â€œI have no objection to that and I donâ€™t think this private memberâ€™s bill is meant to stop that.â€?
Kathy Kendall, who is running for the NDP in Kamloops-North Thompson, said voters are turned off by government advertisements that look like campaign ads. â€œThereâ€™s no money for legal aid, thereâ€™s no money to keep seniors in their homes, thereâ€™s no money for community living,â€? she said. â€œBut, thereâ€™s $16.6 million for ads that everyone recognizes are partisan and pushing the Liberal government right before the election.â€? Terry Lake, Kamloops-North Thompsonâ€™s Liberal MLA, called the timing of Dixâ€™s bill a â€œpolitical ploy,â€? but said the idea might have some merit. â€œWeâ€™re in the silly season now and this is part of that. Itâ€™s interesting that he didnâ€™t come up with this sooner,â€? Lake said. â€œBut, I think once the electionâ€™s over and a new administration takes government itâ€™s something that will have some consideration at least.â€?

A dozen Kamloops celebrities will strap on their running shoes and hit the gym this month as the Kamloops YMCA-YWCA kicks off its annual Strong Kids fundraiser. The campaign raises money to send children to summer camp and provide swimming lessons and other fitness opportunities to kids and their families. Campaign co-ordinator Darcy Harris said more than 400 kids and 1,200 people applied for financial aid to take part in Y programming last year. “The Strong Kids fundraiser is our most important fundraiser to ensure access to everyone — and, often, it’s those families that are

Other events in this year’s campaign include the Fit for Fundz Zumbathon on March 2 at St. Ann’s Academy. Participants can take in a round of zumba at 10 a.m., 11:30 a.m. or 7 p.m. with a $10 donation.

B.C. gas boom is real, all right
HETHER CHRISTY CLARK’S GOVERNMENT SURVIVES THE MAY ELECTION OR NOT, THE NATURAL GAS “PROSPERITY FUND” IDEA FLOATED IN LAST WEEK’S THRONE SPEECH IS A USEFUL ONE. B.C. is poised to join Alberta in the upper rank of energy producing jurisdictions, with an expanding network of natural gas collection, refining and processing into liquid (LNG) for export. Clark’s pre-election throne speech proposed a resource fund similar to Alberta’s Heritage Fund that would be reserved for debt reduction and major projects, rather than spent on programs, which tends to happen under the political pressure of fouryear election cycles. Opposition politicians and media commentators have dismissed this as a pre-election stunt. They note the LNG industry in B.C. doesn’t exist yet and may never produce the hundreds of billions of dollars projected during the next 30 years. I returned for a visit to B.C.’s northeast earlier this month and I can tell you the gas boom is real. My parents homesteaded east of Dawson Creek near the Alberta border in 1962 and I recall when our farm was drilled for gas by Gulf Canada 40 years ago. Many more gas wells have been drilled since then and country roads have been widened and numbered for industrial traffic. Hydraulic fracturing, already in use when our farm was drilled, has
TOM FLETCHER Our Man in
VICTORIA been combined with directional drilling to open up huge new supplies. A farming community called Montney is the latest hot play, yielding not only shale gas but petroleum liquids, which are valuable for diluting heavy oil among other things. B.C. has never seen this kind of international-investment interest before. Initial projects have been joined by global players such as British Gas and Mitsubishi, a key player in Japan’s replacement of its devastated nuclear power program. Spectra Energy, which operates one of North America’s biggest gas processing plants at Fort Nelson and has another one under construction nearby, has begun work on a third plant near Dawson Creek. Spectra and British Gas have also proposed the latest of several pipelines, to move all this gas to an LNG terminal at Prince Rupert. The Kitimat-Prince Rupert region now has at least five proposed terminals, with investors including Shell, Chevron, ExxonMobil and state players from China and Korea. All this is happening as shale gas is developed across the United
States as well. As with oil, Canada is a captive of the U.S. market, and the flood of new gas supply has the North American price at rock bottom. At least B.C. hopes it’s the bottom. Gas royalties passed forest income to the B.C. treasury many years ago and now, as the forest industry struggles to recover, the province faces tumbling revenues from gas. Why would B.C.’s shale gas be seen as a priority for new global investment in LNG? For one thing, we’re a stable democratic country with a mature industry and competent regulation. Secondly, the shipping advantage of the Kitimat and Prince Rupert ports to the Pacific Rim has finally been recognized internationally, as coal, forest products, grain and container traffic has climbed in recent years. B.C. has another advantage that appears to be increasingly important. The shale-gas deposits are deep, under a kilometre or more of solid rock, and most are in remote, sparsely inhabited locations. That adds cost to the pipeline system, but it has a benefit. At the beginning of the year I predicted that the international protest movement that dishonestly targets Alberta oil would soon turn to demonizing natural gas. That pseudo-scientific attack has begun, right here in B.C. I’ll have more on that in a subsequent column. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com email@example.com
The B.C. Liberal government’s plans to boost income taxes on business and high-income earners takes a page out of the NDP opposition’s plans — and makes sense. The NDP plan had called for the corporate tax rate to go to 12 per cent, where it stood in 2008. The Liberals want to boost the corporate tax rate to 11 per cent on April 1. The provincial government will also impose a higher personal income-tax rate on individuals with incomes of $150,000 or more. Their provincial income taxes will rise 2.1 per cent to a rate of 16.8 per cent, as of Jan. 1, 2014. Both of these tax increases are necessary at this time, given the financial shackles the province is in. It has been running large deficits, at least partly because of much lower natural-gas prices, which have affected government revenues. The province is claiming it will balance the budget in 2013-2014, largely because it plans to sell $800-million in surplus property. Given the real-estate market has softened somewhat, that is probably an optimistic figure. There is nothing wrong with selling surplus properties, but there are probably too many properties on the list. The provincial government is also boosting MSP premiums again next year. This is completely unfair to moderate income earners, who do not get the exemption from paying the premiums that goes to low-income earners. This will be the fifth year in a row the premiums will increase and they will have jumped by 28 per cent since 2008. There should be no additional boost in MSP premiums. This budget is crafted with the May 14 election in mind and, while its revenue assumptions may be sound, as economist Tim O’Neill has asserted, it is very much a political document. It is designed to convince wavering voters that the Liberals are competent money managers. Over the course of the past 12 years, the Liberals have been sound money managers much of the time but, in recent years, their record has been more mixed. The Liberals were hoping for a big boost in revenue through the HST, but that was torpedoed by voters because of the bumbling way the government brought in the tax. That hurt their reputation as competent managers. By adopting part of the NDP platform, the Liberals may have unintentionally telegraphed that the NDP too has good fiscal ideas. — Langley Times

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com
A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Re: Story: Stone dismisses Dix’s Science World pledge: “Not promising what they cannot pay for, but Adrian Dix is talking Science World funding and Tom Friedman was talking provincial funds for a performing-arts center. “What do they think of Ajax? “Our community might be more interested in hearing them speak about a real local issue. “Friedman has spent the last few years sniping from the sideline without contributing anything of value to our community. “Why does he think he deserves to represent us?” — posted by Peter McKenna
Re: Story: Killer has day parole extended: “Great — sounds like he is going to be a model citizen.” “Got to love our legal system. “Kill someone, be involved in a few incidents in prison and then receive a get-out-of-jailearly card. “What crap!” — posted by Kevin Smith
Speaking out for clean air Roe decision shows Editor: A human embryo in the womb adds 250,000 brain cells a minute. Unfortunately, “thousands of toxic substances can cross the placenta and impair the process, leaving brain cells stressed, inflamed, less well-developed,” according to Dr. Brian Moench, president of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment. Moench links toxins, including lead and other heavy metals, with autism, attention-deficit disorder and behavioural problems in children. Sadly, such toxins would be released into the air by the open-pit copper-gold mine proposed for the south end of Kamloops.
The mining company, KGHM Ajax, promises to control the spread of toxin-laced dust, but all mines find this a challenge, even when using state-of-the-art technologies. To see evidence, all one needs to do is take a drive near Highland Valley Copper Mine on a windy day. Highland Valley and Ajax are similar in many ways. However, there’s one big difference — Highland Valley is located in a thinly populated area 75 kilometres from Kamloops. By contrast, the proposed Ajax mine would be halfway within city limits and only 1.5 kilometres from the nearest school and houses. The mine would be
upwind of the city, which means the southwest winds common here would carry mine-generated dust throughout Kamloops. The temperature inversions common here would trap it near the surface, where we and our children would be forced to breathe it. The mine promises economic benefits including 380 direct jobs during operation. Is the trade-off worth it? Moench will speak on Sunday, March 10, at 2 p.m. in the Parkside Lounge at Interior Savings Centre. Also speaking will be Cherise Udell, president of Utah Moms for Clean Air. Elma Schemenauer Kamloops
Kamloops Players not so young Editor: Re: (‘Love Letters takes unique approach,’ Feb. 14): The producer of the Kamloops Players’ current play, Betty Nelson, is quoted in the KTW article as stating the Kamloops Players Society is a “young” group, “starting to pump out a lot of plays and get our name out.” I’m not sure where Nelson got her informa-
tion, but nothing could be further from the truth. Your readers might be interested to know the Kamloops Players has been operating continuously since 1967 as a community theatre group and has produced at least two plays, and often more, each year. Furthermore, the last thing any theatre group would do is
“pump out” plays. Each production takes commitment, hard work, ability and time. Finally, Kamloops Players has always worked hard to keep Kamloops audiences up-to-date on what it is doing and most people would be surprised to learn that, according to Nelson, the group is just starting to do that. Marilyn Stephens Kamloops
Delicious Rotary dinner appreciated Editor: I would like to thank the Kamloops West Rotary Club for providing its 29th annual free dinner for seniors. I speak not only for myself, but for the other 269 guests who attended. The dinner was delicious, turkeys ably cooked by Chapters Viewpoinet and all served with many smiles by Rotarians and their families.
The desserts were so tasty — and home-cooked by the ladies. Following the dinner, we were entertained by Jesse Jones, who had us laughing and singing along with him. Altogether, it was a grand evening. Thank you. Alison M. Patton Kamloops
justice system broken Editor: Re: The KTW story of Feb. 14 detailing the fact convicted killer Stephen Roe has had his day parole extended (‘Killer has day parole extended’): Once again, the Canadian justice system has shown it cares little for the damage and suffering caused to victims and the families of the person murdered. I am truly amazed and disappointed that the Parole Board of Canada has seen fit to grant day parole to Roe, never mind extending it. This guy should spend the rest of his days behind bars. Just take a look at his crime and subsequent behaviour while in prison. Yeah, right — we are all sure he will be a model citizen in the future. After viewing his Feb. 21, 2006, attack on David Holditch on the courtroom video, it was very apparent this was a premeditated, vicious attack with the intent to maim or kill Holditch. I remember the judge asking the prosecutor at the preliminary hearing why this was not presented as a first-degree murder charge. I believe the prosecutor said, “We think we can better make a second-degree murder STEPHEN ROE charge stick.” Wow. What the most recent story did not mention was the fact Roe, during his hunt for Holditch, had stopped at another Esso gas station prior to jumping back in the taxi and carrying on to the Aberdeen Esso, where he finally found, cornered and killed Holditch. Seems to me that kind of action requires a little forethought. Until there is sincere, caring and solid action to help protect victims and families of such horrendous crimes, the Parole Board of Canada and the justice system might just as well pack up and go back to their respective cocoons because the way I and thousands of other Canadians see it, the systemic rot and leniency in Canada’s justice system will continue to get worse and people of the likes of Roe can, after a few years of so-called rehab, go merrily about their lives. Meanwhile, victims have been denied their right to a full life. I feel very bad for the family Holditch. They have to continually live with the loss of David. When will the rights of crime victims be recognized in a decent fashion? And, was it really necessary to bring up the girlfriend’s name again? The story was about day parole for Roe. Does it really make for a more juicy read if other names are also mentioned? She, too, as an innocent bystander, has to live with the memory of this obscene, vicious crime. L. P. Larkin Kamloops

Wine festival on the menu Cholesterol Clinic By Dale Bass
Fifteen years is a good age for a bottle of wine — and it’s also a fine time to celebrate the fruit of the vine and support the Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG). The 15th annual KAG Wine Festival runs from March 8 to Mary 16 and includes restaurant meal/wine pairings and the wrap-up consumer wine-tasting event at the Coast Hotel and Conference Centre. Other highlights include special dinner-wine groupings at Jack Sam’s and the Quaaout Lodge, the Black Iron Restaurant at Tobiano, the Fireside at the Plaza Hotel, the Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge and Terra Restaurant, which is holding its event on Thursday, March 21, outside the festival time span to accommodate the winery it wants to feature. The festival is one of the main KAG fundraisers, said gallery fundraising events coordinator Judy Basso, and the tasting at the Coast hotel is always one of the first to sell out. Tickets for it are $45 plus HST and the hotel is offering a reduced room rate for those who want to stay for the night. A highlight at the tasting will be a booth staffed by Discover Wines, a major retailer in B.C. that is about to open an outlet at Columbia Square

Third dog approved after city considers appeal She doesn’t have a third dog yet, but Tosha Moen will soon, and with the city’s blessing. Moen was at council on Feb. 19 to ask for permission to purchase a third dog, one more than allowed under city bylaws. It’s the second time the Elm Avenue resident has come forward with the request. Last year, council denied her request for a three-dog variance
CITY HALL but, on appeal, agreed to put Moen’s request out to the public. Moen said she wants a third dog because her oldest animal’s health is starting to fail and she feels unsafe hiking and skiing in the backcountry. Council passed the variance without discussion.
Rarebirds closer to roost A communal housing project in Kamloops is one step closer to reality. Council agreed to take a rezoning application from the Rarebirds Housing Co-Operative for 772 Battle St. to public hearing.
The applicants, who want to build a single-family home with six sleeping spaces, need the city to amend its definition of “single family” for their home. The city defines family as a maximum of three unrelated people or two or more people related by blood, marriage, adoption or a foster agreement. The Rarebirds’ co-op can house up to
12 unrelated people. Coun. Marg Spina called the project an innovative way of providing housing and said communal living could benefit older residents who can support each other and stay in their homes longer.

Workshop looks at respect The Kamloops Immigrant Services Society will host a Respect Network diversity workshop on Tuesday, Feb. 26, to address the issue. “We are working to promote respect for all and address discrimination issues,” said Annette Sharkey, one of the organizers. “We know there is racism and discrimination in the community.” The workshop — which is free and includes a lunch — is primarily directed toward non-profit societies, government agencies and businesses. “A participant could be someone working on the frontline or is a human resources officer,” said Sharkey.

Junior Achievers of B.C. busy at TRU today The university campus may be quieter this week — it’s reading week there — but at least 20 classrooms will be busy today (Feb. 21) as Junior Achievement of British Columbia holds its Economics for Success program. Regional manager Gemma Gowling said several hundred students in grades 9 and 10 and about 40 business volunteers will take part in the program, which runs from 9 a.m. to 2:20 p.m. in various locations at Thompson Rivers University. The program focuses on key skills
students will need in the future: Budgeting, planning, understanding the cost of living on their own, finding an apartment and other life skills that have a business-related basis. Too often, students head out in search of a first job with the expectation they’ll be able to move out and pay for the life they envision in their head, Gowling said. “But, the reality is, if you’re working an entry-level job, that probably won’t happen. We talk about the realities they’ll face.”
The volunteers will tell their own stories and then guide the students through the exercise, Gowling said. The Daybreak Rotary Club of Kamloops is providing the learning materials and other community organizations are sponsoring other aspects of the event — including lunch for the students, which will see 100 pizzas delivered for what will undoubtedly be rapid consumption, Gowling said. It wraps up with a keynote address by Jo Berry in the Grand Hall of the Campus Activity Centre.
University village taking shape firstname.lastname@example.org
The next public step on the path to creation of a possible university village will come in April, when a morestructured presentation will be given on the idea. Cliff Neufeld, Thompson Rivers University’s vice-president of administration and finance, who is overseeing the project, said a preliminary public open house held earlier this month was not a highly structured event deliberately, “to avoid pre-conceived ideas.” Neufeld, who is due to retire on March 1, said the April session will have more structure and more opportunity for discussion. The proposed university village is part of the institution’s long-term strategic plan. The project involves looking at the campus open space and finding ways to use it to enhance campus life, teaching and research. The first session, attended by about 50 people, featured large display boards with some concepts. Participants were encouraged to discuss the ideas and their own visions for a village concept with the three representatives of consulting firm Stantec, who mingled with the group. Behind the public side is a committee guiding the process,
Neufeld said, with representatives from the student body, faculty, administration, the board of governors and the City of Kamloops. A broad-based com-
mittee was created, Neufeld said, because any village created needs to reflect and fit in with the surrounding community. The April meeting
will move the project forward after the committee considers the ideas provided at the first session. Another meeting is anticipated in the
fall, which will come close to a final proposal but still provide input before a draft is presented to the board of governors, Neufeld said.

BC NEWS Finance Minister Mike de Jong describes B.C. government efforts and projections to control the growth of spending and balance the budget. Tom Fletcher/Black Press
B.C. budget borrows NDP tax hikes 16.8 per cent for two years, starting next January. That increase is to be rolled back to the current rate of 14.7 per cent in 2015, de Jong said. Dix has indicated that if the NDP forms government, he would impose an incometax increase for those earning $150,000 or more a year, with specifics promised in the NDP election platform. De Jong stressed B.C.’s personal income-tax rates are still the lowest in Canada for those earning up to $122,000 a year. With a provincial election set for May 14, the budget will not be passed by the time the brief legislature session ends in late March. Its measures are part of a campaign platform for Premier Christy Clark’s government and

VICTORIA — The B.C. Liberals’ pre-election budget proposes to implement income-tax increases on business and higherincome individuals, similar to proposals from the NDP opposition. The corporate income-tax rate would rise one point to 11 per cent effective April 1, accelerating by a year an increase announced in 2012. NDP Leader Adrian Dix has repeatedly promised to increase the corporate rate to 12 per cent, where it was in 2008. In Finance Minister Mike de Jong’s budget, tabled Tuesday, Feb. 19, personal income taxes for those earning $150,000 or more would rise 2.1 per cent to

the winner of the election must pass a budget in the fall. Also proposed is a tobacco-tax hike of $2 per carton of cigarettes. De Jong said the effective date is held off until Oct. 1 to give people time to quit smoking, with 100,000 B.C. residents having taken advantage of a provincial program offering free nicotine patches, gum or approved prescription drugs. The last tobacco-tax increase was seven per cent when the harmonized sales tax was implemented in 2010, replacing the provincial sales tax that didn’t apply to tobacco. That tax is to be retained when the province reverts to the PST on April 1. De Jong’s budget also proposes to phase out school propertytax credits for light industry for the 2013 budget year.

“Fresh, Healthy, Local”
Province to sell city property Tranquille Road site among 16 Crown lands in B.C. to be sold to raise about $260 million By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS
VICTORIA — Finance Minister Mike de Jong unveiled his government’s promised balanced budget this week, bolstered by Crown property sales, increased income-tax rates and economic growth expected to continue for three years. De Jong’s projections call for spending to increase by 1.5 per cent overall in the coming three years, with health-care spending increases of 2.3, 2.7 and 2.2 per cent over the same period. “This is not enough even to maintain existing health-care services, given the cost of population growth and inflation, not to mention what’s needed to make needed improvements,” said Debra McPherson, president of the B.C. Nurses’ Union. “As a result, health authorities will be forced to continue jamming hospital patients into offices, lounges and other areas not designed for patient care, as
well as using hallways to take up the slack.” De Jong argued the government has already established a track record of containing the rise of health-care funding in recent years. His budget also adds a four per cent increase in Medical Services Plan premiums to take effect next January, the latest in a series of increases paid by individuals or their employers for basic medical care. Business organizations are concerned about a one per cent increase in corporate income tax, on top of the carbon tax on fossil fuels and the end of the harmonized sales tax that provided input tax credits. Rick Jeffery, president of the Coastal Forest Products Association, said the return of the provincial sales tax amounts to a $140-million tax increase to his members. The forest industry understands the financial pressure and the revolt against the HST, but
now needs regulatory reform and skills training from the government to keep it competitive, he said. The Canadian Restaurant and Food Services Association applauded the end to the HST, projecting a year of growth for B.C.’s 12,000 restaurants once the sales tax on prepared foods drops by seven per cent on April 1. Finance officials say 16 Crown properties to be put on the market this year are expected to produce a net return of $260 million. They include a vacant lot on Tranquille Road in Kamloops, a former hospital site and two vacant lots in Surrey, a vacant lot near Victoria General Hospital and the former location of North Saanich middle school. The government expects to finish the current fiscal year with a deficit of $1.2 billion, the fourth straight deficit since the global economic meltdown that unfolded before the 2009 election.
Education fund has $1,200 for kids under seven A children’s education fund set up by the B.C. government in 2007 is being distributed to parents, with a suggestion that they add to the fund for their kids’ education. Payouts of $1,200 will be made from the fund for each child as they turn six. To qualify, parents have to open a Registered Education Savings Plan and apply for the grant
before their child turns seven. Eligible children are those born on or after Jan. 1, 2007, resident in B.C. with an RESP account set up by Feb. 28, 2014. The budget also provides $32 million over three years for new child-care spaces and a new early childhood tax benefit for families with young children, to take effect in April 2015.

Education and Career Fair
Explore the possibilities As a parent, you are likely assisting your child with their plans to pursue post-secondary education. The decision will determine whether they find employment, the type of careers available to them and their chance of finding a career they are passionate about and can make a good living pursuing. One of the biggest perks of a diploma, degree or trade certification is that these credentials have been proven to guarantee a higher income.
In other words, a post-secondary education definitely pays off. Both of you are probably overwhelmed by the variety of education and training options available. Options include university, college, career-training institutes, trades training, apprenticeship, adult education, mature studies and distance education. This is where the Kamloops Education & Career Fair comes in. On Monday, Feb. 25, at the Kamloops Convention Centre,
you will have the opportunity to speak with representatives from throughout North America and destinations abroad. You and your teen will be able to discuss course offerings, admission requirements, school features and all of the important issues that are crucial to making a great choice. Go online to educationcareerfairs.com to see the full list of exhibitors and the seminar schedule. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

Education and Career Fair
Online studying growing While many post-secondary institutions are holding their own in online-learning registrations, Thompson Rivers University (TRU) has seen its numbers grow by seven per cent within B.C. and 15 per cent in other provinces. Gordon Tarzwell, vice-provost of the open-learning school, said the growth is “a positive indication of the growing national reputation of TRU” and reflects the value the institution is seen to be providing to students. Distance learning is a growing area in post-secondary education throughout North America, Tarzwell said. That expansion is likely the result of several realities students now face. Tuition is expensive, he said, and many students find they must work longer hours to pay for it. Distance learning provides flexibility for students to study according to their own schedule, Tarzwell said. Housing costs can also be a major expense that might deter a potential student from moving to live in a community with a university, making online study more appealing. And the simple reality that often students are working for lower wages and can’t afford to take a full course load might make distance learning attractive, he said. Many of the students studying in open learning are also working full-time, Tarzwell said. The average age is in the upper 20s and many are simply taking courses to add to their skillset or finish school they may have started before.

NOTICE TO ELECTORS OF ALTERNATIVE APPROVAL PROCESS PULP MILL SANITARY FORCE MAIN This is the ﬁrst of two notices to advise electors in the City of Kamloops of the intention to adopt the “Pulp Mill Sanitary Force Main Loan Authorization Bylaw No. 14-1-170”. The purpose of the by-law is to borrow an amount not to exceed $2,979,500 to ﬁnance the cost to install 3 km of 750 mm diameter PVC sanitary force main along a portion of Mission Flats Road to convey sewage from the entire south shore of Kamloops to the Kamloops Sewage Treatment Centre 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 $6.69 per year. A copy of By-law No. 14-1-170 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.
Obertowich and Thompson don’t expect to be alone on the roads for long. “I think it could be the start of something really big,” said Thompson, pointing to Vancouver, where more than 100 trucks are permitted to serve food streetside. The couple plans to set up in Valleyview Square and (with permission) in front of various businesses on the reserve and in the city. For now, though, there’s one place hungry customers won’t find them — in downtown Kamloops. While city regulations permit some outdoor food vendors to operate in the central business district, the zoning category that covers most of the downtown core between First and Sixth avenues, only trailers without motors and pushcarts are welcome. Motorized food trucks are limited to four zones, while pushcart vendors get more than twice that number. Randy Lambright, manager of planning and development for the city, said he’s not sure why the city initially imposed stricter restrictions on food trucks, but suggested it may be because they tend to be so much larger than a hot-dog cart, which can sit on the sidewalk. There’s also the parking issue — always a hot one in downtown Kamloops. Food trucks take up parking spots, whether

on the street or in parking lots, which can hurt brick-and-mortar businesses in the area. For their part, Obertowich and Thompson don’t think their 24-foot truck should take up spots on Victoria Street either, but they’d like to be able to get closer to the downtown than the outer reaches of Lorne or Battle streets. “Some rules are going to have to be looked at,” Thompson said. Lambright said the city plans to do just that this year. While the increasing popularity of food trucks is part of the drive to update city rules, he said they aren’t the only mobile businesses interested in setting up shop in Kamloops. “We’ve had other mobile businesses who want to, for example, erect a tent in the middle of a parking lot and start repairing windshields,” he said. The city plans to talk with the businessimprovement associations on both shores and may also hold public input sessions as it revamps its policy. “It raises a whole range of issues that existing businesses would want to have input on,” Lambright said. “For example, those
businesses that are already in existing buildings, that have paid their taxes and put in landscaping and built a building and things of that nature, only to have a competitor come by and be able to put up a tent next door and siphon off some of their customers.” Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association general manager Gay Pooler is not sure what members will think of food trucks, but agreed it’s a conversation the city needs to have before too many more pour into town. “Mobile vendors do add vibrancy to the street, but you’ve got to make sure it doesn’t impact your bricks-and-mortar stores,” she said. Pooler said discussions with her counterpart in downtown Vancouver led her to believe food trucks can co-exist with other downtown businesses. “It can work, yes, because it’s a different experience,” she said. “If you want to sit down and have a beer with your lunch. you have to go to a restaurant. If you want to have a business lunch. you’re not going to go to a mobile cart.” On the North Shore, Morgan Smith thinks
more food trucks could also help her. While her Holy Crepe trailer doesn’t move from its Fortune Drive location unless she’s working a festival, Smith bills her operation as Kamloops’ first food truck. And like any first, Holy Crepe took some people by surprise when it opened in 2011. “I think people were hesitant in the beginning, like not sure if it’s safe or how it works or how long it’s going to take or where to order,” she said. “Just the little things that make people feel comfortable interacting with a business.” Since then, the glutenfree creperie has built up a loyal following, but Smith said having more food trucks in the city, and getting more Kamloopsians familiar with that style of dining, could also boost her business. “It’s just a matter of getting more food trucks and more time. People say all the time, ‘You should be on Eat Street,’” she said, referencing the Food Network’s popular reality TV show focused on food trucks. “I think it’ll happen. It just needs a little more time.”
The City of Kamloops proposes to borrow the money and install the sanitary pulp main along a portion of Mission Flats Road unless, by 4:30 pm on April 2, 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 6,886. 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. Non-resident property 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 owned property in the City of Kamloops for the previous 30 days prior to signing an elector response form. Note that only one non-resident property elector may sign an elector response form per property, regardless of how many people own the property. Resident electors signing the elector response form must provide their full name and address. Non-resident property electors must provide their full name, residential address and the address of the property in relation to which they are entitled to register as a non-resident property elector. The City of Kamloops will not share the information on the form with anyone other than the Corporate Ofﬁcer, or other person designated by the Corporate Ofﬁcer.

Budget pressures affect WolfPack By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
HE THOMPSON RIVERS UNIVERSITY WolfPack will tighten their collective belt and hunt for money in the next two years, with school-wide budget pressures continuing to affect the athletic department. “We have two choices: Either cut spending or increase revenue,” TRU athletic director Ken Olynyk said. “Obviously, we’re looking at areas that we think we can save money, but also areas that we feel we can raise money and increase our revenue size.” The Kamloops university is targeting
about five per cent savings over a three-year term, which started in 2012. There are no plans in place for any drastic measures in athletics, such as eradicating teams or programs, but budget trimming has already begun. No longer, for example, do WolfPack teams fly to Calgary to play the Dinos. Instead, they take the bus. Other travel costs are also taken into more careful consideration. On in-province road trips, “instead of going the night before, which is common practice throughout the league, we’ll go the day of,” Olynyk said. “You’re saving some money on meals, accommodation, bus
costs, et cetera.” Flying to Calgary to avoid a lengthy bus trip has its obvious advantages and surely arriving in Prince George a day before playing the University of Northern British Columbia Timberwolves would be preferred to traversing Highway 97 on game day. Those are the types of sacrifices WolfPack players and coaches are dealing with — and the same types of concessions are being made university-wide. “I don’t think many of the directors and deans revel in it at all,” Olynyk said. “There’s always frustrations in that you want to give everybody the greatest opportunity to be successful. “Often, that seems
to be tied to budget, but it’s not necessarily the case at all. “We have great facilities here. We have one of the best training centres and we have great support staff. “There are lots of other factors that come into offering quality programs.” There has been no change in what athletics programs at TRU can offer for scholarships, Olynyk said — at least not yet. “Once the new fiscal comes in next September, it could affect what programs can offer scholarshipwise but, if we’re good in our fundraising aspects, that means we’ve got an opportunity to keep it at a level that we want or even increase it.”
There have, however, been changes in the amount of money tied to academic-excellence awards. “We’ve limited that a little more than we have in the past,” Olynyk said. In 2012, TRU expanded its team of development officers, who are charged with the task of doubling fundraising within 2.5 years, going from $3 million to $6 million. The athletic department stands to benefit from the creation of those new positions down the road. “Right now, we’re in kind of a holding pattern,” Olynyk said. “We try and make it as fair and even for everyone that’s involved in our programs.”

Stem Cell Activator
Helps to activate naturally millions of stem cells from our own bone marrow. The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of self-repair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. It does not contain live human stem cells as these can only be transplanted by surgery and are subject to immuno-suppressant drugs to avoid graft rejection. Naturopathic Doctor #63 summarized his experience in writing after using this Stem Cell Activator: Used for all organ and tissue damage, heart attack damage, osteo-arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, traumatic brain injury, muscular dystrophy, Crohnâ€™s disease, diabetes, lupus, spinal injuries, and other diseases and tissue damage. The results have been very satisfactory to us and to the patients and the time varies with different patients depending on the extremity of the damage. Women witnessing the effects of Bell Stem Cell Activator: ďż˝Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging.

WolfPack women conﬁdent heading into playoffs STAFF REPORTER
The logical next step for the TRU WolfPack women’s basketball team is a first-round Canada West playoff victory, which can be accomplished this weekend in Calgary against the Dinos. “Last year, we were just happy to be there. This season, we are happy, but we think we can push through and get to the next round,” said Jorri Duxbury, a third-year guard. “That is our goal.” TRU’s basketball women snuck into the playoffs for the first time in program history last season with a 9-9 record and were swept in a first-round bestof-three series by the Saskatchewan Huskies. The WolfPack, who this season posted a 15-7 mark under head coach Scott Reeves, have every reason to believe they can get past the Dinos. In the only meeting between the teams this season, TRU topped Calgary 69-60 in
Kamloops on Jan. 12. It was one of only three losses on the season for the Dinos (19-3). Game 1 of the bestof-three quarter-final series will be played on Friday, Feb. 22, with games two and three set for Saturday, Feb. 23, and Sunday, Feb. 24, respectively. Calgary is known for pressuring on defence and forcing turnovers, which TRU must avoid if advancing to the next round is in the cards. “We have to play with composure,” Reeves said. “We can’t get caught up in the tempo that they want to play at, where they are stealing basketballs and pressing us and getting us to turn it over. We want to have a stable, emotional state in the game.” Keeping emotions in check will be a tall
far. We are so motivated right now.”
task for the Pack’s fifthyear players — Diane Schuetze, Tracy Kocs and Jen Ju, each of whom would love nothing more than to reach the Canada West semifinal in their last kick at the can. “Being a fifth-year player is always tough,” Ju said. “There is that whole emotional part of if.

Downtown gallery planning juried show for emerging artists A downtown Kamloops art gallery is asking upcoming artists to put their work forward for a show this spring. The Karla Pearce Art Gallery is slated to host its first Emerging Artist Art Show in April. The call is open to the entire community and artists do not need any previous experience showing their work. Organizers are mainly interested in submissions of paintings, but will be accepting threedimensional artwork as well. There will be over $1,000 in prizes and awards given out to first-, second- and thirdplace winners. A jury made up of members of the community will individually critique the work in a positive way and will decide on the show’s winners. A People’s Choice Award will also go to
the artist who receives the most votes from visitors to the gallery. The jury is slated to include local art enthusiast Jean Chertkow, CFJC-TV personality Susan Edgell, Shaw TV producer Sam Numsen, Kamloops-Thompson school district fine-arts co-ordinator Lorie Jane Froese and KTW associate editor Dale Bass. Karla Pearce, who owns the gallery, said it’s her mission to create a space that facilitates community involvement in art while providing an opportunity for quality learning experience for all of its students. The Karla Pearce Art Gallery opened in December 2011. It showcases the paintings of Pearce, as well as other local artists, offering 950 square feet of exhibit, teaching and studio space, including a moveable wall.

Mischa Barton. The workshop, titled Getting Started in the Arts, is for aspiring teen dancers, singers and actors and their parents. Sklar said a career in the arts is dependent on two things — self-image and health. “If you don’t feel good mentally and physically, you won’t open up and show us who you really are,” he said. “When that happens — no matter how good you are, how pretty or who you know — we’ve already lost interest.” Getting Started in the Arts is slated to be held at The Academy of Dance, 910 Camosun Cresc., at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 23. It is open to teenagers, young adults, older children and parents. No one under seven will be admitted, and no one under 18 will be admitted without a parent or legal guardian. There is no cost to attend, but reservations are required by calling 250-314-9974.

Corruption crack down hits city hall!
It was music to my ears, I couldn't believe it when I heard "Quebec corruption crackdown hits Montreal city hall"... after years of being battered with "you can't fight city hall" [which is slang for; the city can get away with anything], the city of Montreal is finally admitting there is indeed corruption at city hall, including evidence of embezzling contractors, politicians-bureaucrats and even Mafia. I asked myself; could there be light at the end of the tunnel after all? Montreal needs to be give more credit, although the Quebec government's incompetence is seemingly infinite, more so than the average municipality as evidenced by its share of Federal debt, though the people seem to be immune to whatever crap "they" are putting in the food/water/air and in media that makes the masses so apathetic. Indeed 2012 was a year of awakening in Quebec; between the student/pots and pans movement and the crack down on corruption at city hall, Montreal is becoming quite a poster child for action. To many of us, the government corruption is so obvious, you don't need to be a certified accountant to figure out that prices municipalities dole out taxpayers cash for goods and services are criminal. But its been that way since the inception of the corporate soul municipality scheme; the high jacking of a community by bureaucrats "for the good of the people". make no doubt...it is a scheme, and like all schemes, the house always wins. Most people don't realize the difference between a community and a municipality, its not something they teach in government schools. Understand a community is a group of people, united for the common good; each man is 100% responsible for his or her actions. As a result people are more aware of themselves and others in the community; the people come together, working to solve problems, dealing with issues, plan social events and deciding how to spend resources within the community. The biggest motivation in a community is love and concern for each other much like a family, focusing on those most in need as a team without ego, without bragging, without personal gain. In contrast a municipality is a corporation, it in it's self; legally is a person, just like you and me for all intents and purposes even though the municipality is obviously a fiction, [man made corporate soul]. Just like any flesh and blood person, the municipality, [in theory] is responsible for its actions as well. But instead of the body of a corporate person being made up of one single flesh and bone man, the artificial corporate person is made up of the flesh and bone of many people who act under limited liability, protected, allowing them not to be “personably” accountable for their actions; think of it of as a giant Frankenstein-Godzilla. An example is the child who was tazered by RCMP after Government child services failed him, actually putting him in a nightmare where the child was literally tortured for years because of policy incompetence; incompetence of the people who are so called professionals that we trust to mold our society, yet are not held accountable, which begs the question; who is really above the law? Everyone who works for the municipality becomes part of the corporate body of the fictional Frankenstein person stitched together. Different classes of people make up different parts of corporate person's body. the vital organs[heart, liver, kidneys, brain] of the corporate body are made up of people acting as CEO.s, administrators, executive directors and the like. The officers/bullies who enforce unconstitutional legislation using fear under threat and duress represent the muscle of the body, strung out on steroids. The colon proudly represented by the politicians; full of gas and BS, while the corporate dick, [lacking morals] represents the lawyers and bureaucrats who screw everyone for pure pleasure and self gratification as the entire body explodes in orgasm and ego when a “plan comes together” and they get their way. We mustn't forget the lowly citizen, he too makes up part of this corporate soul person municipality, believe it or not, every single living flesh and blood natural "person" [man/wombman] who lives within the geographical area, is claimed by the municipality as part of the corporate body person. Your ignorance is not your fault, the system is intentionally designed to keep mortal people preoccupied with life and material crap; so much so that the average "person" is plagued by apathy like a disease; removing the initiative to fight the Godzilla-Frankenstein monster. At the same time, they keep drilling it into you; "you can't fight city hall, you can't fight government" Reality; you are registered to pay taxes if you own property within the municipal region; you submit to their by-laws, building codes...or else. Taxpayers make up the heel and the back of the municipal body, including the anus as taxpayers constantly get screwed with high taxes and dwindling services. When the municipality has a wish list, your taxes [life energy] are the ones that get raised, you are the one they tread on to provide the means for the municipality's/person's desires and addictions such as "the tournament capital" theme park. Who wouldn't like to wake up in Disney land everyday...but can you afford the inflated costs, what are the priorities of a sane individual? Is it not your back, and your spouse's back that have to get up at 6 am, your heels trudging to a mindless job just to survive in reality? The lowly "citizen" could also be described as the blood/life-force, for it is your energy that provides the life-force for the rest of the corporate body, without your taxes, indeed the corporate body would shrivel and die. You don't' even realize, you are acting in a play...in a fiction...in a nightmare! Oh buts its no nightmare if you are one of the lucky vital organs of the body...just living off the fat of citizens taxes. Just look at all that money flowing into the hands of the municipal person, mmm, millions; and the power that come with it. Lord Acton stated, "Power tends to corrupt and absolute power corrupts absolutely." So when one “person” holds all the power such as a municipality, Stalinization creates a superiority complex that in their mind, can do no wrong, or make no mistakes. Its natural for men of flesh and blood to make mistakes, we admit we are not perfect; yet a person of fictional proportions such as a municipality is infallible in its own mind, in every way, because it is a fiction. Fictions pretend everything is great; fairytales always have a happy ending. To admit to a mistake would be a Municipality's Achilles’ Heel, for a corporate soul can not ever admit to a mistake, fore to admit a mistake would bring the whole scheme down, leaving it liable. Why is it private individuals can get the same work done at a fraction of the costs of public, you or I couldn't justify those kind of inflated costs. Locally, taxpayers are getting screwed by government spending 3 million on a brand new Hotel to create the gaudy Emerald House, 100 meters of bike path costing tax payers 6 million, and $43 000 spent on replacing bus schedules that, in six months, will be flawed themselves. As a man who grew up poor I feel to spend $250 000 to bring a tennis court surface up to Olympic standards is crazy. I would love to have a $100 000 sports car, I have the assets, though is it wise to invest that much priority into such a trivial trinket when I can take one fifth of that budget to accomplish the same thing? Truly, if a corporation were a natural “person”, it would be diagnosed as a psychopath; the incapacity to experience guilt the incapacity to experience guilt Guilt (emotion)” or remorse, lacking morals, the failure to conform to social Norm_(sociology)” norms, and can not admit wrong doing or respect the [true] law/oath. Callous disregard for the feelings of other people, no allegiance to anyone or thing other than its own purpose/profit, reckless disregard for the safety of others, deceitfulness (continual lying to deceive for profit/personal gain). A Corporation’s only defense; not criminally responsible, [insanity]. Perhaps the question taxpayers should be asking at these fluffy public propaganda budget meetings is; where is an exact accounting of every penny spent? After all, an inflamed back or heel produces much pain and discomfort for the rest of the body, though it is going to take more than a few cells to complain people. Unfortunately I don't hold my breath corruption investigations will go any further than Montreal anytime soon; the actions in Montreal are only a result of cause and effect, similar if you put your finger on a hot stove, you would instinctively remove it; Something had to be done after bridges and buildings started falling down and killing people all over the city. Self evident, not only did the criminals inflate the prices of goods and services, but they also skimped out on materials so much that it lead to several incidences of collapsing structures. Indeed, every municipality has the same infestation of vermin; locally the Halston bride is an example; every year since is was built, sections need to be torn up and re-welded so it too doesn't fall into the river, a bridge that was suppose to cost 5 million has now cost taxpayers 10 million...and counting. Another example is my mom lives in a small community called Vavenby, in the last year the corporate "person" know as TNRD has taken control of the community ‘for the good of the people”. Previously the community use to hold all sorts of events and social gatherings weekly at the “community” hall. Now anytime members wants to use the community hall, they have to purchase limited liability insurance that dictates extremely strict by-laws, so as a result, the community does not have half the activities it use to due to the bureaucracy and extra costs forced upon them “for the good of the people”. Somewhere I read: that every person is equal under the law, that government is created by the people for the people, and that government is accountable to the people, though there's very little evidence of that today. In fact corporate government acts the opposite, as if they were god. And critics wonder why people all over the world are peacefully revolting, refusing to comply with corruption…. Ignorant to the fact that it is our duty; our forefathers did not get slaughtered for an idea of freedom and liberty only to have such subrogated. “I swear to protect our nation from enemies…both foreign and DOMESTIC!” BRIAN ALEXANDER

Educating Rita ‘a delicious treat’ for director Two-person show takes stage at Sagebrush By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
ORGIVE SARAH RODGERS FOR THE EAR-TO-EAR GRIN ON HER FACE. But, she’s very happy. And the Vancouver-based theatre veteran who is in Kamloops to direct the Western Canada Theatre’s production of Educating Rita — beginning today (Feb. 21) at the Sagebrush Theatre — has no problem explaining why. Educating Rita, you see, is a two-person play. “I direct a lot of musicals in Vancouver, and often I’m moving 40 people around the stage,” Rodgers told KTW. “So, this is a gift — two actors in one room and it doesn’t move. “It is a delicious treat for me.” Rodgers said the unique directorial characteristics of Educating Rita have allowed her to spend more time on details that might otherwise become afterthoughts. “As a director, it means I get to focus more on things,” she said. “I can spend more time on the relationships, the work of the characters and their journey.” And, of course, it means more time can be devoted to the actors — Scott Bellis playing Frank and Holly Lewis in the role of Rita.

Educating Rita is set entirely in the office of Frank Bryant, a literature professor at a British university. Dave Eagles/KTW
Lewis began work on Rita accent in November XFrom B5
She began working on the accent with a dialogue coach in November, spending hours on the phone essentially trying to sound like a member of The Beatles. “My son didn’t like it,” Lewis joked. “He kept telling me, ‘Mommy, stop talking like that.’” Lewis said the accent would have made it tough to understand what she was saying on stage. “It’s like talking with a mouth full of marbles,” she said. “We decided to go with a Manchester dialect and sprinkle in a bit of Liverpool.” The result sounds almost Scottish. But, the blue-collar effect definitely shines through in Rita’s voice. “She’s a working class hairdresser who’s hungry for something more, and she’s trying to
find it in literature,” Lewis said. “It’s really fun.” Rita enrolls in a university English class, where she meets Frank — a professor and her tutor. The two come from very different backgrounds, but teach each other a lot throughout the course of the play. Written by British playwright Willy Russell, Educating Rita made its debut in London in 1980. Three years later, it was adapted to the big screen in an award-winning film starring Michael Caine and Julie Walters. Lewis said Rita was a fun character to get into. “For her to take this step and come in here and risk looking stupid is terrifying and so brave,” she said. “The core of this is change. “It’s so much easier to continue your life the way you’re going
than to do something different. “And it’s a comedy, so it’s very fun. “If I could spend my entire life doing spit-takes, I would.” Rita is Lewis’ first role “out West.” She is originally from Toronto but now lives in the Tournament Capital with husband Daryl Cloran, WCT’s artistic director. “This is my first time actually working here at all,” she said. “In Toronto, every time I go into a room, I know all the actors and I know all the directors. “When I found out I got this part, I was so excited because it’s new people.” Educating Rita runs through March 2 at the Sagebrush Theatre. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Monday and Tuesday and 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday with a pay-whatyou-can matinee at 2 p.m. on Saturday, March 2.
Please bring your child’s original birth certiﬁcate and Care Card with you when registering for Kindergarten. Please note: If registering for Montessori (Grades K-6 at Aberdeen Elementary), French Immersion (Kindergarten & Grade 1), Beattie School of the Arts (Grades K-12) or Bert Edwards Science and Technology School (Grades K-6), please bring your child’s most recent report card with you. Registration will be limited to students residing in the school/program catchment area. Please bring proof of residential address.

If you’re anything like KTW cuisine columnist Darcie Hossack, some days all you can think about is olive bread. Darcie Hossack photo
Some days are for olive bread All day, I’d dreamed about olive bread. I dreamed about it in the morning, when Chefhusband brought home a sample container of artisanal olives from his restaurant supplier. I dreamed about it while I’d kneaded the dough and set it aside to rise. I continued to dream about it even after the dough didn’t rise much, and I slid it, anyway, in the oven to bake. And, when it ended up being more of a flatbread than the loaf I’d anticipated, I ate it and dreamed of trying again. Thing is, every loaf of bread is an exercise in both science and faith. Sometimes loaves just fail. Sometimes there seems no reason at all. Sometimes it’s the baker. Sometimes it’s just the yeast. It’s at this point when there’s nothing for it except to
DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT go back to basics. Step 1: Proof the yeast. Step 2: Peer into Pyrex measuring cup and dip a finger into beige slurry to see if there are any signs of life beneath the surface. Step Three: Discard beige slurry. And so today, with a new batch of olives, I also break the vacuum seal on a fresh package of yeast. A gasp of air rushes in and the aroma of brewery wafts out, an aroma that hints at one
of the baking world’s most magical acts of microbiology — the fermentation of sugar into alcohol and carbon dioxide. Fermentation is a beautiful thing. In bread, it inflates the dough so it’s light and airy. It changes the flavour profile of the loaf. It alters the protein structure to make the bread soft. And, this time, when I dissolve a level tablespoon in a cup of warm, sugared water and set it in a warm place, I return 10 minutes later to a pillowing froth. I can practically hear the yeast cells multiplying as they elbow each other for space by blowing tiny bubbles. Perfect bread is a baker’s version of searching for the holy grail. It is where intuition meets the Arrhenius Equation (a formula for the temperature dependence of reaction rates).
It is where chemistry lab meets kitchen. Without a proper bakery, however, with its controlled temperatures and perfectly calibrated steam ovens, I feel like I’ll always be at a disadvantage. Partly, though, it’s that I have nowhere near the skill with flour that I’d like. Partly it’s that I’ll never get enough practice unless I open a black-market bakery out my back door. Nevertheless, while there are bakeries in town that sell loaves lovely enough to make baking my own bread entirely unnecessary, there are days when nothing will do except the feel of dough in my hands, followed by the aroma of bread in the oven. Today is one of those days. And, as I slide an olivetopped pan of well-risen dough in to bake, all that’s left to do now is wait.
Chef David Tombs takes the freshest local, organic & sustainable ingredients and crafts something truly remarkable.

Journey to Jane Eyre’s era in the Costwolds By Glenna Turnbull TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES travelwriterstales.com
Did you ever wish you could travel back in time, back to the days of Jane Eyre, Pride & Prejudice or Downton Abbey? Well, you don’t need Michael J. Fox’s Delorean — just a regular plane, train or automobile can take you to a world that will make you think you’ve walked into a Jane Austen novel. Located just over two hours by train or car northwest from London, Cheltenham is one of the best places to start on your trip back through time, crossing through an English countryside where sheep dot the hills, penned in by fences built from stone. Situated in an area referred to as the Cotswolds, it has been designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Britain and a conservation board established in 2004 ensures it will stay that way. The result is small villages that look they’ve come straight off the pages of a Jane Austen book. The Ellenborough Park is a prime example. Located in just 10 minutes outside Cheltenham, this luxury Cotswolds destination hotel’s main house dates back to the 1500s. Refurbished in 2011, it won the U.K.’s Leading Country House Hotel and Leading Spa Hotel awards at the World Travel Awards. Inside, the 62 rooms and suites have all been individually designed by Nina Campbell and the spa has seven different treatment rooms, as well as a sauna, steam room and whirlpool. I opt for the aromatherapy back, neck and shoulder massage and am pleasantly surprised by the professional training of my masseuse. Dinner in downtown Cheltenham that night was at The Daffodil, a
This mill in the Costwolds is typical of the area, and offers a glimpse back in time.
refurbished old movie theatre with dishes that reflect the local provenance. Unlike the Ellenborough, their ability to cater to vegan diets isn’t quite as good but they do win points for the great décor and fun ambiance. Driving through the Cotswolds the next day, we stop in small villages with names like Lower Slaughter, Stow-in-the-Wold, and Bourton-on-the-Hill. With sites to see such as the Sudeley Castle, the Stanway House and the old mill at Lower Slaughter, it really does feel like we’ve slipped through time to land in a world of cobblestone streets, stone mason crafted shops, pubs and the kind of houses you could imagine Jane Austen may have been writing about. Our trip was timed to catch the Cheltenham Literary Festival, where guest speakers included Roger Moore and J.K. Rowling. The literary festival is the longest running of its kind, formed in 1949. Other cultural activities in the area include the Cheltenham Concert Series, which features such delights as the Philharmonic Orchestra, BBC National Orchestra of Wales and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra during the upcoming season. Sitting inside the beautiful Cheltenham Town Hall listening to the music of Mozart, Beethoven and Bach, you might just believe you did indeed fall through time.

Ever heard the one about the circumcision war trick?
YPE “LAUGHING Jesus” into Google Images and you’ll find a whole array of artists’ conceptions of what Jesus might have looked like enjoying a good joke or a humorous situation. The ability to laugh is the one distinction of being human and the man Jesus would certainly have been no exception to the rule. Unfortunately, there are absolutely no examples in the New Testament of Jesus in a lighter moment. But, that doesn’t mean there is no humour at all in the Bible. In all my years of attending church, I don’t recall ever hearing a sermon about Biblical humour, probably because the majority of humour is black humour. Black humour is not appreciated by everyone because it has a dark side and fairly unpleasant consequences for the victims of the situation. It’s what my wife would call “guy humour” — the kind she rolls her eyes at when I’m giggling away. Take the poor Philistines, for example. In Samuel 1:5, they have just defeated the Israelites in battle
the wretched thing to and captured the Ark Israel. of the Covenant (you I would have liked to know, the same one have seen the expression the Nazis purloined on the face of the goldin Raiders of the Lost smith — “You want me Ark). to make five what?” They came to rue I’m sorry, but that is the day they took it, funny. though, because the CHRIS KEMPLING Another episode of Lord “smote them with You Gotta Have black humour takes hemorrhoids” (some place in Genesis 34, in translations of the Bible FAITH the story of Dinah. use the more delicate Dinah was a comely lass, the word “tumours”). daughter of Jacob, who caught the The men of the city of Ashdod eye of Shechem, a young Hivite quickly figured out the problem, man. and decided to send their war Shechem had his way with trophy to the neighbouring city of Dinah, then had the gall to ask his Gath. father Hamor to approach Jacob Well, soon all the men of Gath were screaming for Preparation H. and Dinah’s brothers with a marriage proposal.

Verse 12 says, “And the insisted that it was unthinkable to men of the city who did not die marry off Hebrew women to those were smitten with hemorrhoids who were uncircumcised. and the cry of the city went up to They said, “The only condition heaven.” on which we can talk business is So, they decided to consult the priests of their god Dagon to figure if all your men become circumcised like us. Then we will freely out how to solve their dilemma. exchange our daughters in marTheir advice? Make five golden hemorrhoids as a gift and return riage.”
So, Hamor and Shechem persuaded the whole Hivite clan to get circumcised, basically playing on their greed, for the Hebrews had huge herds of livestock. Shortly after the mass circumcision, two of Dinah’s brothers, Simeon and Levi, walked into the Hivite town “while all the men were still very sore,” put them all to the sword and rescued their sister. In the whole history of human warfare, there never was a victory strategy like that one. But, the funniest story in the Bible is the story of Jacob, Rachel and Leah in Genesis 29. Jacob journeys to his uncle Laban, looking for a wife. Laban has two daughters — the younger, Rachel (“beautiful of form and face”), and the eldest, Leah, who had “weak eyes.” Basically, Rachel was hot and Leah was as homely as a crosseyed warthog. So, Jacob strikes a deal with Uncle Laban to work seven years for him in exchange for Rachel’s hand in marriage. After seven years of hard labour, Jacob comes to claim his
beautiful bride. But, on the wedding night, Uncle Laban pulls a fast one and sends in Leah under her veils into the marriage bed. Funniest line in the whole Bible? “So it came about in the morning that, behold, it was Leah!” Needless to say, Jacob is incensed. Laban is unashamed of his bald-faced deception, saying, “Look, we can’t marry off the younger daughter before the older one. So, work for me for seven more years and I’ll give you both of them.” Jacob reluctantly agrees. But, I can’t help but chuckle at the thought of Jacob’s face on the morning after. “Good morning, my darl — what the heck?” The Bible is a holy book and full of great stories. But, without a doubt, God has a sense of humour. KTW welcomes Faith page submissions. Email columns, 600 to 800 words in length, to email@example.com.
