Guilty plea expected By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A senior charged with driving into a young woman in a North Kamloops crosswalk, seriously injuring her, is expected to plead guilty today (March 21) in Kamloops provincial court. Merle Peter Michels, 85, is charged with driving a motor vehicle without due care and attention in connection to a Sept. 7, 2012, accident. On that day, 20-year-old Chloe Jasmine Demers — also known as Chloe Ardile — suffered lifethreatening injuries and spent several weeks in a medically induced coma after being hit by a car as she crossed Tranquille Road at Leigh Street while in a crosswalk. The driver of the vehicle allegedly ran a red light and struck Demers. On March 7, Michels’ lawyer, Rob Bruneau, requested the delay in Kamloops provincial court so he could confer with the Crown prosecutor assigned to the case. Late last month, Demers’ family filed a lawsuit in B.C. Supreme Court, seeking money to cover loss of income, loss of earning capacity, future care costs and general damages, among other claims. According to the notice of claim filed on the woman’s behalf, Demers suffered a severe traumatic brain injury, a broken tibia and fibula, multiple lacerations, abrasions and bruises to her entire body, a blown pupil and an ACL injury to her left knee. The document claims she has been left with scars on her head and body and now suffers seizures, pain, depression, sleep problems, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder and headaches. According to the document, Michels was speeding when he allegedly ran the red light and failed “to take reasonable steps to avoid a collision” with Demers. There is no dollar amount listed in the document. Michels has yet to file a response. Merle Michels returns to court today to answer to a charge in connection with a Sept. 7, 2012, accident that seriously injured 20-yearold Chloe Jasmine Demers. KTW file photo

A 66-year-old woman was injured when she jumped from a moving van after it started to roll across a parking lot on the weekend. On Saturday, March 16, the van’s owner had driven it to visit friends at a residential complex at 460 Dalgleish Dr. just off the Summit Connector. He opened the door and placed some items on the seat before walking around the vehicle

to buckle up his threeyear-old daughter and five-year-old son in the 2006 Dodge Caravan. A family friend was sitting in the front passenger seat. The driver’s mother was just starting to get into the van when it started to roll backward across the lot. She fell down a grassy embankment and was treated at Royal Inland Hospital for minor injuries. As the van rolled backward, it swiped

the rear passenger-side door and quarter-panel of a parked 1998 Nissan 200S before hitting a house. The building had moderate external damage, the value of which has not yet been determined. The driver told RCMP he had not started the engine and the gear was in park, with the park brake engaged. Police are waiting for a mechanical inspection of the vehicle.

Roundabout plan a bit too pricey By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

While it sounds simple in theory, city staff say one resident’s plan for a roundabout in front of city hall would be more difficult in practice. The city plans to reconfigure the intersection of First Avenue and Lorne and Lansdowne streets by adding traffic lights, prohibiting left turns off Victoria Street and removing two one-way exits. But, at a public meeting on the design last month, Lorne Street resident Horst Broscheit brought forward his own plan for the intersection, noting his roundabout design would improve traffic flows and would not require the same level of signals and signage. Because cars wouldn’t need to stop for lights, it would also reduce emissions from idling vehicles. Kristen Meersman, the city’s capital-projects manager, has seen Broscheit’s design schematics and thinks the type of installation he is proposing could be “very beautiful.� However, she said, the team working on the intersection did consider a roundabout and found the cons outweighed the pros. “One of the key considerations in a roundabout is, typically you see roundabouts when the movements are all relatively equal,� she said. “At Third Avenue and Lorne Street, we have three directions of traffic that are pretty equivalent in volumes, so roundabouts work pretty well.� At the city-hall intersection, however, traffic is far heavier going east and west, along Lansdowne. While the new configuration will allow more drivers to move north and south, going directly from First Avenue to Lorne Street, Meersman said traffic volumes are not expected to rival Lansdowne’s. Broscheit’s concept also has two or three lanes of traffic circling in some spots, which Meersman thinks Kamloops drivers might have a difficult time accepting and navigating. It also cuts into road space the city wants to reclaim and make into a small park, directly in front of city hall. Broscheit also proposed a pedestrian bridge over Lansdowne. But, Meersman said, that could add $1 million or more to the project’s cost. The city’s planned reconfiguration is pegged at just under $1 million in total. Other roadworks planned at the same time, including resurfacing work on Lansdowne, bring the total project costs to $1.8 million. Meersman said most comments at the February meeting were positive and the city plans to give its design some final tweaks and send it to tender. Construction is expected to start this summer, when the traffic load at the intersection it at its lightest.

Overlander Auxiliary members Lori Farmer (left) and Em Hammer examine a group photo presented to volunteers at an appreciation tea at the Overlander Residential Care Home on Tuesday, March 19. The Auxiliary has raised $1 million in its 36-year life. Andrea Klassen/KTW

Million-dollar milestone By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

F

OR THE MEMBERS OF THE OVERLANDER AUXILIARY, THERE WAS NEVER ONE BIG FUNDRAISER. An annual garage sale to buy Christmas presents for the residents of the Overlander Residential Care Home typically scores four figures in sales. Between that, there are smaller bake sales and craft tables and penny drives. But when a group of residents at the home held up signs bearing the amount of money the group has raised in its 36 years at an appreciation tea on Tuesday, March 19, it was clear those small fundraisers had added up. Since its inception in 1977, the auxiliary has donated $1 million to the care home, supplying it with specialized wheelchairs and mattresses, presents and entertainment for residents. Em Hammer, one of a handful of members around since the auxiliary’s earliest days, said it never felt like she was raising so much. “It was $500 at a time,” she says. Members of the auxiliary have different reasons for joining. Some are former staffers, others have had relatives stay in the home. In Hammer’s case, a former nursing co-worker called her up the first day Overlander opened, asking her to come lend a hand. It’s been a part of her life ever since.

She said the group has stuck together for nearly four our decades, even when membership numbers have dipped, because auxiliary members enjoy spending time in each other’s company. “We have such respect and enjoyment of each other. I think we just sort of all pulled together and wanted it to be OK, everything to be OK even when it was shaky,” she said. While they’ve managed to replace members who had left or passed on, Hammer said isn’t as easy to recruit as it was when she got the call in 1977. “They’re busy,” she said as she mimed texting on a cell phone. “They don’t do the same stuff they used to do.”

We need a performing-arts centre with TCC attributes

A

FTER THE BIG SPLASH announcement in January about the committee charged with moving forward on a possible performing-arts centre in the city, not much has been heard. I’d like to think that’s because the committee members are out in the community, talking to people, asking them what they think, following up on what was a successful public-input session at the Tournament Capital Centre to get ideas from those of us who will plant our bums in the seats. Mayor Peter Milobar has always said this is a process that will take some time, that needs to be done right and that won’t happen overnight, notwithstanding the enthusiasm some of the committee members have privately expressed about getting something built somewhere sooner rather than later. Last year, while I was still covering entertainment for Kamloops This Week, I talked with some of the folks who might use such a facility and their visions were fascinating — but they had one common theme. Whatever is built, wherever it is constructed, it needs to be something that can adapt to the many needs of the arts and culture community in Kamloops. That means it can’t be just another big theatre, but needs to be able to accommodate the smaller audiences. It needs to have the facilities for travelling stage shows and the adaptability to scale down for the more intimate performances. It needs to be more than just a stage.

LEVEL experience what they’ve been missing. So, here’s my idea of what should happen. First, location. Here, I must go back to that ages-old report that was once talked about when the idea of a performing-arts centre was being mulled around — and that’s the site now occupied by the Henry Grube Education Centre. There are good reasons to build something there and one really bad reason to do it. The good? In my mind, I see a wonderful building set on the river with a restaurant overlooking the South Thompson, a venue that takes advantage of the incredible scenery available. The bad? Traffic would be a nightmare because the roads into the site aren’t really designed for a lot of vehicles. Even if that could be addressed, some signalling changes would be needed or folks would end up stuck trying to get out onto Fortune Drive. The solution? Forget about that site and build something where the Pavilion Theatre now sits. Relocate that skatepark across the road, build a riverfront restaurant there and put a walkway over River Street to connect the two venues.

The need for a restaurant should be obvious but, this is Kamloops, where the premier theatre venue doesn’t have a liquor licence — or even a lobby area large enough to accommodate a full house at intermission without people tripping over each other. The obvious reason to include it is financial — an operating restaurant would generate revenue. Attaching it to the centre might help draw people who might not attend and provide an reason for those who know they will be buying tickets to a show with a reason to go earlier and relax or head over after the final curtain for a snack or nightcap. In my hometown of London, Ont., the main performing-arts centre doesn’t have a restaurant because it’s located smack dab in the middle of downtown, surrounded by eateries offering every kind of food possible. London’s art gallery, however, is located off the more-beaten path and features a lovely little restaurant that overlooks the river. It always seemed to be pretty busy with people. There are so many other options available as Kamloops moves forward with this plan. Put in a classroom for an ongoing educational-program opportunity. Partner with the Kamloops Arts Council to add a retail component that will promote area artists. Work with the theatre-arts folks at Thompson Rivers University to bring that wonderful program more attention than it now receives. In short, be the artistic equivalent of the Tournament Capital Centre, something that has wide appeal, various components, world-class attributes and is accessible to everyone. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Provincial voters will go to the polls on May 14 to elect a new government. According to Elections BC, the election campaign will officially begin on April 16, which is writ day, the day the ordinary nomination period begins. According to everyone outside of Elections BC, the election campaign started long ago, right about the time Christy Clark was selected by B.C. Liberal Party members to replace Gordon Campbell. The campaign really has been in full swing since then. Over the course of two days — today (March 21) and tomorrow — Kamloops voters will have the rather unique opportunity to meet all three leaders of the province’s main trio of parties. Within a 27-hour period, Premier Christy Clark, B.C. Conservative Leader John Cummins and B.C. NDP Leader Adrian Dix will visit the city that has long served as the province’s bellwether riding. The MLA representing Kamloops (or a portion thereof during the dual-MLA era and when riding boundaries changed) has always been a government member. When the Socreds win in 1952, Kamloops was on board. When the NDP won in 1972, Kamloops leaned left. When Social Credit returned in 1975, Kamloops returned as well. Same thing happened with the NDP victory of 1991 and B.C. Liberal triumph of 2001. It is not surprising, then, to see all three leaders see fruitful possibilities in the Tournament Capital, with two seats up for grabs. Want to se what they have to say?

Ajax is busy buying its way into Kamloops Editor: Shortly after I started to attend this year’s Kamloops Film Festival — and I’ve never missed one in its 17 years — a friend pointed out to me KGHM is a sponsor of the festival. That ended my attendance at this year’s festival and it’s also going to lead me to not see Western Canada Theatre’s Fiddler on the Roof — because Europe’s premier polluter is, apparently, sponsoring the play. KGHM has further managed to buy its way, literally, into the ice at Interior Savings Centre. How can the directors and creators of these cultural/athletic events accept these sponsorships from a company that cares

Editor: I noticed the big advertisement KGHM bought in the March 5 edition of Kamloops This Week (‘Meet Jean-Paul and Ryan’), in which new Ajax employee Jean-Paul is quoted as saying, “I will work tirelessly to demonstrate how we can achieve zero harm with the Ajax project.” Zero harm? The complete destruction of 10 square miles of native grassland is a giant harm that cannot be undone. It is so near impossible to restore disturbed rare grasslands that I’m betting the mine and both levels of government are probably not even going to attempt it. Grasslands are also critical habitat for

30 per cent of B.C.’s species at risk. A 2004 provincial government publication, Grasslands of the Southern Interior, stated B.C.’s grasslands “are one of Canada’s most endangered ecosystems.” After 23 years, Ajax will leave a giant, 1,600-foot-deep contaminated hole in the ground and 10 square miles of contaminated wasteland full of invasive weeds. (Note the problems New Gold is experiencing with weeds.) Other examples of harm: • Air quality. • More dust, toxins and particulate matter in Kamloops. • More respiratory problems, more people hospitalized.

• More air-quality alert days. • Fewer doctors. • The likely disappearance of Jacko Lake and contamination of Peterson Creek. • The loss of habitat for species at risk and pollinators. • Daily blasting for 23 years so close to houses and schools over land that already experiences disturbances, owing to groundwater issues. • Loss of property values. • The carbon footprint of the mine. I’m all ears to learn how new Ajax employee Jean-Paul can convince us of zero harm. Paula Pick Knutsford

Skiing Sun Peaks on 230 centimetres of snow a true blessing Editor: Our family was blessed to ski Sun Peaks on Saturday, March 16, on 230 centimetres of snow. I was surprised to see the parking lot half-empty, especially since it was the first Saturday of our school district’s spring break. I am writing to encourage Kamloops to come out and support our local treasure. There is reasonably priced accommodation, delicious food, live music and great sales in the stores.

Would somebody from an organization funded by KGHM feel free to speak out against the proposed mine? I doubt it. The doling out of, apparently, more than $100,000 to community organizations is also designed to give the impression KGHM is already here. If it was an established company in Kamloops, I wouldn’t be saying any of this. But, KGHM is not an established company and we shouldn’t give the company the feeling it is accepted. We will not be silenced. Does anyone want a ticket to Fiddler on the Roof? Bruce Stevens Kamloops

only about buying its way into acceptance before it even has permission to spew earth-, air- and water-borne toxins into and onto the people of Kamloops? Any company or organization accepting sponsorship from KGHM/Ajax has lost my support and is also risking the loss of business from thousands of other concerned Kamloops citizens — residents who rightly worry about their health if the copper and gold mine proposed for south of Aberdeen is approved. This sponsorship spending spree is an attempt by KGHM to look like a caring, corporate community citizen by using “silencing money” to try to muffle and muzzle those who might oppose its proposed project.

LOCAL NEWS Mayor Peter Milobar is leading the way in Kamloops’ battle with the city in which he played junior A hockey. Milobar, who played briefly for the Nanaimo Clippers in the 1989-1090 season, could don the orange Clippers sweater once more after he and Nanaimo Mayor John Ruttan agreed to bet on whose city can save more energy during Earth Hour. Milobar played for the Clippers under current Nanaimo Coun. Bill Bestwick, but was traded shortly after a five-game suspension late in the season. He played eight games, tallying three points and 20 penalty minutes. Milobar said the idea for a friendly challenge came from a discussion between two city councillors at a recent convention. “It was brought forward to me and we agreed to take up the challenge,” Milobar said. “We thought hockey jerseys would be the best way to identify each city.” If Nanaimo loses, Ruttan will have to wear a blue Kamloops Blazers jersey for the entire length of a council meeting. If Kamloops loses, Milobar will have to wear a Nanaimo Clippers jersey. BC Hydro tracks power usage during Earth Hour and posts the results the following day. In 2012, Kamloops finished 15th out of 91 B.C. cities, reducing power consumption by 3.6 per cent. Nanaimo finished 21st, reducing its consumption by 2.6 per cent. “The pressure is on,” Ruttan said. “We’ll need to make sure that Nanaimo comes through on this one.” The power play takes place on Saturday, March 23,

from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m., when cities across the globe reduce power as a symbolic gesture to show it is possible to take action on climate change. Milobar acknowledged Kamloops could do more to conserve energy use as both Nanaimo and Kamloops have actually seen power usage increase during Earth Hour at least once since participating. “I feel this is a good way to boost awareness,” Milobar said. “We’ve certainly had off-years here as well, I’m not going to lie. We’ve had less-than-stellar reductions so, hopefully, this can help put both cities right in the thick of things.” Last year, more than 15-million Canadians performed the simple act of turning out the lights for an hour, while others got more creative. Some restaurants promoted candlelight dining for patrons, families played board games or shared stories and municipalities hosted events like Kamloops’s Dim Swim, where lights are dimmed at the Tournament Capital Centre so residents can enjoy a swim in semidarkness. Provincewide, B.C. residents and businesses saved 121 megawatt hours of electricity and reduced the provincial electricity load by 1.67 per cent, the equivalent of turning off about nine-million 12.5-watt light bulbs. Earth Hour is a worldwide event organized by the World Wildlife Fund and held annually at the end of March. The first event took place in Sydney, Australia, in 2007 when that city’s residents turned out non-essential lights. Since then, it has grown to involve cities in more than 130 countries.

RTs plan to clear the air in Peru STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

With an asthma rate that has been called one of the highest in the world, the need exists for respiratory technologists (RT) in Peru. And, if all things go as planned, seven Thompson Rivers University students in that health discipline will spend two weeks in Peru, doing their part to make an impact on the breathing-related maladies that affect residents. The seven students, along with a professor and a clinical psychologist from B.C. Children’s Hospital, hope to head to the South American country in May. It’s the third time TRU has sent RT students there, said Les Matthews, an associate professor in the faculty of science and

the director of the university’s Centre for Respiratory Health and Sleep Science. Last year, the group that went took three continuous positiveairway pressure machines (CPAPs). This year, they will be travelling with about

They are developing a pamphlet on breathing diseases — chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder is also prevalent — and plan to have it translated to Spanish and distributed when they get to their destination. Right now, the group is working on funding, with only about half of the estimated $21,000 needed for the trip collected. Grewal is optimistic they will be successful and is looking forward to the trip. She was also on the 2012 expedition. Matthews said the students gain much during their time in Peru. They not only get to put into practice their studies and see tangible results, but they are exposed to another culture — and another health-care system. While many Peruvian hospitals are

well-equipped, he said, those in the rural areas are not. “It’s hard when you’re trying to work in an environment with such limited resources,” Matthews said.

20 machines. They plan to teach staff at hospitals how to use them, then leave them behind for treating Peruvians. Matthews said the machines are older-technology models that were donated by medical-supply companies. “People want the newest and the best, so these are older models they can’t do anything with,” he said. “And they’re usually brand new, just older technology.” Student Sue Grewal said the group will also do asthma clinics and work on sleep-apnea and other respiratory and ventilation issues with people.

Playoff edition

HINGS GOT UGLY LAST TIME THE KAMLOOPS BLAZERS AND VICTORIA ROYALS MET. There were 156 minutes in penalties doled out on March 5 at Interior Savings Centre, 93 of them assessed to Victoria in the third period. In addition, a pair of Royals — head coach Dave Lowry and forward Tim Traber — were suspended by

the Western Hockey League. Game 1 of the opening-round bestof-seven playoff series between the two teams will be played at Interior Savings Centre on Friday, March 22. Will the bad blood — which really started to flow in Round 1 of the playoffs last season, when the Blazers swept the Royals 4-0 — spill over when the puck drops at 7 p.m.? “I think we can use it as a little bit of fire,” Kamloops defenceman Tyler

Battle Royale Hansen said. “But, at the same time, we’re not going to do anything stupid.” In the March battle royale, Traber cinched up on Kale Kessy’s jersey, choking the Blazer forward unconscious. Kessy, who still bears marks on his neck from the incident, has no elaborate plans for retribution. “I’m not going to go looking to get even with him,” Kessy said. “I’m not going to

go looking to fight that guy. We need him on the ice. We’re just going to focus on our game and not let anything distract us.” Discipline will likely be key if Kamloops is to reach Round 2, with its Vancouver Island foes known for relying on toughness and physicality for much of their success, and head coach Dave Lowry saying the suspensions handed out by the league will not alter his team’s

approach to the series. “We’re not going to change the way that our team has to play,” he said. “We know we’ve had emotional games every time we play. They’re physical, they’re emotional and they’re intense. It’ll continue along that way.” The Royals will be without their MVP and leading scorer Alex Gogolev for the rest of the season. A deep leg cut suffered

on Feb. 5 ended the 20-year-old stud’s WHL career. Victoria does have a capable supporting cast up front — Brandon Magee, Jamie Crooks, Ben Walker and Steven Hodges, to name a few — and, if he is able to overcome a nagging lower-body injury, Patrik Polivka is capable between the pipes. The Royals’ breadand-butter, though, is a physical game, played by forwards

who forecheck aggressively and sizeable blueliners who play big in front of the net. “From our perspective, we’re going to have our hands full,” Kamloops associate coach Dave Hunchak said. “They [the Royals] are a year older, they’ve got some guys that went through it last year and have some guys who have a sour taste in their mouths.” X See HUNCHAK A14

brand of hockey that helped them reach the playoffs. The Blazers enter the post-season with a remarkably clean bill of health. Centre Matt Needham, who has been nursing an upperbody injury, is expected to play in Game 1. His return to the lineup presents Blazers’ head coach Guy Charron with a dilemma — with whom does Needham play? Before the injury, Needham was clicking on a line with Cole Ully and Chase Souto. In his absence, Ully found chemistry playing with Brendan Ranford and JC Lipon. KTW asked Charron about his line-combination plans. His answer, not surprisingly, was vague, but it offered an unexpected element of intrigue. “Fans will probably be surprised to see some of the changes that we may have made,” said Charron, who of late has gone with Smith, Kessy

If the plan is to batter the Blazers into submission, Hunchak said his players are not afraid to engage in a black-and-blue affair. “It won’t be an issue for us,” he said. “For the last two years, teams have taken runs at us. I feel we’re a bigger group this year. On our back end, we have five guys that are 6-foot-2-plus. “People think that coming to play us, they want to be physical. We can play that game, too, and we plan on doing that.” Victoria captain Tyler Stahl is known across the league and respected for playing a punishing brand of hockey. He is injured, supposedly out day-to-day with a lower-body injury, and it is not yet known how healthy he will be come Friday. Stahl’s presence in the lineup, or lack thereof, will affect the Royals’ ability to play the rough-and-tumble

and Tim Bozon as the Blazers’ first unit. “It’ll be experimented with this week in practice. We’re projecting to try to spread out our talent on various lines and see what happens early on.” Aspen Sterzer is still at home with his family, trying to recover from what many suspect are concussionrelated issues. He is not expected to return to the lineup. Forward Joe Kornelsen is the only other Blazer nursing an injury (lowerbody) and has not yet resumed skating with his teammates. The Blazers, it seems, are ready for the post-season to begin. “When I think about the Royals, I think about a team that’s big and physical and wants to intimidate us,” Hansen said. “We’re a skilled team. Hopefully, we can beat them that way and we know we have the tough guys and we can play that way, too.”

Blazer brain train Curling event forces change in venue

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Blazers strolled out of the Rivers Room Lounge at Interior Savings Centre, light chatter echoing off the walls and windows, with flurries of snow falling outside on Mark Recchi Way. They looked relaxed. Colin Smith chose to stay behind and carry boxes for the woman who had left the Blazers in a reflective state — Isabelle Hamptonstone, a certified neuro-linguistic programmer and hypnotherapist who has been working with the team since last season. “The mental-performance techniques that I use I can’t share with you right now but, essentially, in a nutshell, I was activating the part of their brain where they are the most personally powerful,” Hamptonstone told KTW minutes after the session — open only to players, with coaches and management left waiting in the office downstairs — came to an end. With the Western Hockey League’s pressure-packed playoffs just around the corner, Hamptonstone, who goes by Izzy, was brought in to provide the players with a mental edge.

ISABELLE HAMPTONSTONE: The brain behind the Blazers’ brains.

“It’s called hypnotherapy, I’m pretty sure,” Blazer forward Chase Souto said. “She just basically uses your subconscious to make you think positive.” Hamptonstone operates Brain Train International out of Kamloops and Sun Peaks, but works with athletes and professionals worldwide by phone and through Skype. She told KTW the Blazers need to act out of faith, not fear, to better deal with the boiling cauldron of nerves they are sure to be dunked in come post-season puck drop. X See YOU A20

Bear Mountain Arena has received praise for the warmth, intimacy and tastefulness of its design, according to the Westshore Parks and Recreation website. The Victoria Royals’ fans will no doubt be interested in the “intimacy” provided by the mid-size arena but, come Game 3 of a first-round WHL playoff series with the Kamloops Blazers, warmth and tastefulness will likely be thrown out the window. “We know that fans can be a seventh player,” Blazers’ head coach Guy Charron said. “I know the intensity or the noise will probably be a lot

raucous atmosphere, similar to that of a bantam or midget playoff game. Dave Hunchak, the Blazers’ associate coach, is not sure playing in Bear Mountain, located about 20 minutes from the Blazers’ hotel, will have any

impact on the series. “The ice is still 200 feet by 85 feet,” he said. “If it’s loud and boisterous, it’ll be no different than what we went through last year. “We’re used to it. For us, it’ll be more exciting than anything.”

You gotta have faith X From A19

“The problem with operating out of fear is that with any choice that you make in life, if you act out of fear, then you’re already on shady ground,” said Hamptonstone, a Welsh immigrant. “You’re not operating from a place of quiet confidence and courage. From that place, all things are possible. “When people can really see themselves as powerful, as they really are, then that in itself is a game changer.” Smith, the Blue and Orange’s top scorer, has been working one-on-one with the team’s mental trainer since 2011. He said Hamptonstone started by “easing” him into the different techniques she uses. “It was just kind of natural,” Smith said. “I didn’t really question it and just kind of trusted it. “Each session you try and identify one thing you want to try and improve and use different imagery and

try and overcome certain obstacles.” So, does it work? “Yeah,” Smith said. “In everyday life, you wouldn’t think outside the box like that. You go in a room like that for an hour and you come out refreshed and open-minded.” There is an element of mystery about Hamptonstone’s practices, but, judging by the testimonials on her website (btmvp.com) from athletes

such as local World Cup skier Elli Terwiel, the wand Hamptonstone is waving might have the magic touch. Blazer fans will be happy to read her diagnosis of the team’s mental state heading into Round 1 against the Victoria Royals. “What I’m seeing is a team that is congruent, that is powerful and that is open to finding more ways to improve,” Hamptonstone said. “I can’t ask for more.”

“So there you have the unvarnished truth. My hat is permanently off to the Strauss Herb Company.” In 2005 my husband suffered a colossal heart attack that went on for 1 ½ hours. His heart was oversized and after the attack was sloppy and a heart transplant was spoken of. 25% of his heart died off. So he had the usual; a 6 bypass operation and 2 angioplasties thrown in for good measure. After 2 weeks he was discharged and I brought home a barely living corpse. Month after month went by with no great improvement and at 8 months, he suffered severe heart failure, requiring hospitalization to remove the Àuids. His legs swelled to the size of elephant’s legs. He looked miserable and felt life had nothing more to offer him than a slow excruciating death. His legs were ice cold to the knees as well. It was at this time a friend came to the rescue. She sized up the situation and showed me this miracle. I went out the next day a bought a bottle of Heartdrops. I marked on the calendar when we started and lo and behold, day 14 was THE day of improvement!

Over time, we threw away 7 prescription medications that did nothing for him but made things worse. Today he takes 1 pill a day to slow down the heart and his good health comes from Strauss Heartdrops®! I’m not stupid either, I take them everyday to PREVENT these problems. I tell everyone who will stand still about this miracle.

COVER PAGE STORY

Briana Vaillancourt learns how to use the baton at the Kamloops Youth Academy, held this spring-break week at Brock middle school. Students began preparing for the academy in October with reference letters and essays submitted. Dave Eagles/KTW

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The students are sitting at tables in the library, their attention captivated by the slideshow at the front of the room. The instructor is narrating, pointing out the scene in which the bad guys are there just to cause trouble. He points out police in the crowd, trying to control the anger that had spilled into downtown Vancouver streets in June 1994 after the Vancouver Canucks lost to the New York Rangers in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final. The instructor moves on to other slides of a similar riot in Vancouver in June 2010 — again after the Canucks lost the deciding game of the Stanley Cup championship. This is not typical classroom discussion, but these students at Brock middle school aren’t average Kamloops teens taking advantage of freedom during spring break. They are 22 young people with their eyes on graduation in the next year or two — and they are taking part in the annual Kamloops Youth Academy, organized by the Kamloops RCMP and the Kamloops-Thompson school district. The academy is giving them

a taste of the careers in law enforcement they plan to pursue. That’s why, when walking through the halls where bunk beds are in place — boys one side of the school, girls on the other — one notices some mattresses have been tossed off the frames.

The students, however, have been planning for it since October, when registration opened, making sure they had reference letters from teachers submitted, ensuring their school records are spotless — no bullying, fighting or other “stuff we don’t like,” Meinke said — and polishing off their essays on why they are interested in policing. Once they had that documentation approved, usually by Christmas, they faced passing the physical test, which required them to run 1.5 miles in less than 15 minutes and do at least 30 pushups and sit-ups in a minute each. “Then, they’re in,” Meinke said, “and we give them a reallife experience of what policing is all about.” Six officers are with the students for the week, with others coming to teach classes and share their own experiences. The officer giving the talk about the riots, for example, is Kamloops Rural RCMP Const. Jason Epp, a veteran who specializes in tactical operations and has been involved in five riots. There are also hands-on sessions as instructors put the kids through routines that range from self-defence to making an arrest. Watching it all is Greg Howard, SD73’s district principal for trades and technologies.

young guns Something wasn’t done right. Maybe the sleeping bags weren’t folded properly or the T-shirts weren’t on their hangers. Whatever it was, the bed was tossed and the students have to fix it. “Day one was a little bit worse,” Const. Rupert Meinke said of the condition of the “barracks” on Tuesday, March 19, the day KTW visited the five-day, 24-hour-a-day RCMP camp for students in grades 11 and 12. This is the third year the camp has been held, but the first time it has coincided with spring break.

Howard brought the camp to the attention of Const. Cheryl Bush several years ago when he accompanied some Kamloops students to a similar camp in Vernon. From there, Bush took it to then-superintendent Yves Lacasse and it became a reality. Howard, who will retire at the end of the school year, said he simply told Bush “we need to do this here,” a belief he said was fostered not only by the educational opportunities it provides students, but because it gives the youth a chance to see officers as human beings. He is delighted one of the graduates of the first camp has recently applied for a policing job and expects many more who have gone through the program will do likewise. Meinke agrees, noting that,

each year, one student usually drops out, yet all students remained after Day 2. Parents aren’t allowed to visit and can only attend the Friday, March 22, graduation ceremony. Each student pays $250 for the camp but, Meinke noted, the cost per student is more than that. Three meals a day for five days is about $200 each, he said. Students also receive track suits, a T-shirt and a cap, a combined $100 value. The school board provides the building, while the catering company Linda and Lynda, which also has the contract for the kitchen at Westsyde secondary, does the cooking. Other supporters make sure the camp is a success. Northern Trailer pays for the track suits, Kamloops Crime Stoppers donates money, Panago

Pizza contributes some meals, Tim Hortons caters the graduation ceremony, the Kamloops Sports Council donates the beds and Don’s Towing provides a car that can be used for a demonstration of a jaws-of-life rescue. Kamloops Fire Rescue and B.C. Ambulance also lend expertise to ensure students get a complete first-response experience. Meinke agreed with Howard that one of the best side effects of the camp is the opportunity the students get to see real police officers and hear their stories. “We had one student tell us he had seen Police Academy and that’s how he knew about policing,” Meinke said. “He was joking, of course — except he really was just halfjoking because that’s all he knew. “Well, it’s not like Police Academy.”

Extra! Extra! Here’s mental-health news

I

T HAS BEEN some time since we told you about new developments in mental health. This is important to report because, did you know our column is read by people all over North America — and sometimes by people in countries overseas? We have found links to Kamloops This Week’s online edition of our column tweeted and re-tweeted to places as far away as South Africa. Our last column on the benefits of dark chocolate was picked up by a tweeter in Ontario. The link was then re-tweeted by a reader in Courtenay. It went across the country and back again. That is one of the reasons we love receiving your questions and comments. They make our information relevant to readers from Parliament Hill to Washington, D.C. and to people all over North America. Keep those questions coming! For those of you who remember the stand-up comedian and Saturday Night Live writerturned U.S. Sen. Al Franken, you will be happy to hear he has introduced legislation in the U.S. Senate that would support the creation of mentalhealth services in U.S. schools. Local groups (just like ours) would be able to make proposals to access funds to increase access of services for students. By the way, voters in California chose counsellors over armed policeman in their schools as the No. 1 way to reduce school violence. Surveys show attitudes about people with mental illness

have changed a little, but still have a long way to go. According to the New England Journal of Medicine, the general population supports more spending on mental illness, but mainly because fear and suspicion about those with mental illness has increased. About half the polled population feels people with mental illness are “by far more dangerous” than the general population — in spite of the fact only four per cent of violent crimes are committed by people with mental illness and people with mental illness are 11 times more likely to be the victim of violence than the general population. Last month, all seven of the Canadian-based National Hockey League franchises announced an initiative to increase awareness and discussion about mental health and treatments. One game in each of the seven cities will be dedicated to “Hockey Talks,” where teams will speak up to encourage a national conversation about a topic related to mental illness. What a great form of leadership from athletes who are so admired by young people. And, finally — but certainly not the last of the stories making news about mental health — it seems the hour of sleep we lose when we “spring forward” can have rippling negative effects and can take some people several days to recover from them. Loss of sleep is a particular threat to mental health.

If you are one of those people who are impacted every spring, start adjusting your sleeping patterns a little ahead of anticipated change and take care of your mental health. Thank you again for reading and tweeting about our column and for all your questions sent to us a Kamloops@cmha. bc.ca. We have been hearing from youth lately, so stay tuned for some of the mental-health issues on the minds of young people.

For the devil is in the details; PH levels are one of the most important building blocks in Mother Nature's arsenal; volcano's and forest fires are of natures building blocks as life flourishes in their alkaline PH. In contrast, fossil fuels have extreme acidic PH emissions, devouring and destroying life; from ozone depletion, acid rain and cancers [our health] to the acidification of the oceans; all under corporate subrogated government because it creates jobs, profits and tax revenue for which government is hooked on like a crack addict. So what we have is government and corporations ignoring laws of nature, leading the masses down a destructive future; home builders/owners installing gas appliances ignorant to reality. Reality is today's technology does not require natural gas to be used in residential and should be outlawed, but because it generates profit, royalties and looks cool, the truth is to bold to be told. Likewise, there is no shortage of ignorant sheople jumping on the green propaganda bandwagon with loud cheers and jeers, brow beating those who don't blindly follow gov/corp propaganda. Government taxed and corporate waxed; on the flip side there's greed, its getting so many can't afford corporate costs to keep warm as Mother Earth has acid thrown on its face because women have no rights in ignorance. For those who are builders/ing, or renovating; know that each time a gas appliance is turned on, it slowly festers cancers and death. Learn to lead instead of follow, force yourselves to think outside of the box corporate society puts us in, learn to look at reality and question what you and others are doing to future generations [your children] and Mother Earth; Ignorance of the law is no excuse, the laws of nature are superior to all man made legislation/education. Never mind what history will say, at this rate, man will be lucking to have any history at all if gov/corp have their way. Reality is @ championchimneyservices.com, by Sovereign Brian Alexander;

Snakes without head By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

The Kamloops Rattlers need a coach for the 2013 ThompsonOkanagan Senior Lacrosse League (TOSLL) campaign. “We need to find somebody and it seems like there is nobody out there,” said Mark Jurista, the Rattlers’ captain. “We want a coach, instead of having a player-coach.” The last year Kamloops had a full-time coach was 2011, when John Aldred was behind the bench. In 2012, several team leaders acted as playercoaches. The coach would be required to attend one

practice and one game a week, with practices on Tuesdays and games usually on Fridays. Kamloops kicks its season off with a tilt at Memorial Arena on April 12. The team’s first practice is slated for 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, at Memorial. Any players wishing to try out are invited. Vernon was forced to fold this season due to a

lack of numbers, leaving Kamloops, Armstong and Kelowna to compete for the TOSLL title. The Rattlers are also looking for sponsors — which can advertise in programs handed out at home games — to help out with equipment and travel costs. Call Jurista at 250682-5949 to apply for the coaching position or inquire about sponsorship opportunities.

City fields looking good By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Marching toward glory Kelly Olynyk of Kamloops and the Gonzaga Bulldogs made the front cover of Sports Illustrated. Next up, the No.

1 ranked Bulldogs begin their quest for an NCAA Divison One championship. Gonzaga of Spokane will square

off today (March 21) with the Southern Jaguars — seeded, 16th in the West bracket — in Salt Lake City. The first-round

matchup gets underway at 1:10 p.m. TSN will televise the game. Southern University is located in Baton Rouge, LA.

No late-season blizzards. No torrential downpours resulting in floods. No frost. Shawn Cook must be pinching himself. The city’s parks and operations supervisor was happy to report that Kamloops’ sports fields are “probably in the best shape they’ve been in at this time of year in quite some time.” Cook said user groups will benefit from a mild winter. “It wasn’t incredibly cold over the winter,” he said. “We had little, if any, frost on the ground of our sports fields. “It’s been good for us with the snow

cover, too. It limited the amount of geese on the fields. They chew and they eat all winter if there’s no snow cover.” Last year was a different story. “We had a massive melt,” Cook said. “It was really quick, and we had some field damage and we had the flooding as well on McArthur Island.” With Easter tournaments just around the corner and minor sports leagues set to kick into full swing in April, Cook is thrilled with the work maintenance crews have done. “It’s good not to see a huge amount of turf damage and being able to tell the user groups we can start on time, and maybe early,” he said. “We’re the Tournament Capital, so we try and boast about our fields when teams come out here from out of town.”

Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH  Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS  For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since #23 taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.  Lost my husband because of sleep apnea in 2011. I had sleep apnea, too. I was scared to go to bed and have an heart attack like my husband. After taking Bell #23 I can now sleep for 5-6 hours peacefully without gasping for air. A blessing. Suzie Weigel, 60, Chattanooga, TN.

Although it is important for us to get the necessary data for the Application, public safety is our foremost priority. We are currently running drill programs in the project area, making it an active work site. Risk is minimal but, as with any work site, there is potential for personal injury. We are aware that a lot of recreational activities take place in the surrounding areas, and although KGHM International and our contractors keep safeguards in place, we ask members of the community to be cautious and remain out of the work area. We anticipate an increase in drilling activities in the spring and will advise the community as we near the start dates.

Project Et3rnity taking advantage of technology editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

At first, it was a simple matter of format — acetate records, eighttrack, cassette tapes and compact discs. Then came methods of distribution, beginning with the radio and then moving on to television in the form of music videos which tantalized a whole generation of listeners. Today, it has become increasingly rare to possess hard copies of your favorite artist’s album. The digitalization of music has moved access to it almost exclusively online, where downloading albums and watching singles on YouTube has changed the industry’s dynamic. We remember the lawsuits initially filed by the more-popular, established groups who felt it unfair their music be distributed royaltyfree on the Internet, but what about the up-andcoming musician?

Meet Project Et3rnity’s Al Bettz and Winston Smith, founders of Honey Pot Studio West. The Kamloops group formed last summer — the culmination of the previous acts The Tyme Travellers and The Bare Fringe — recording their first album in a traditional live manner, but with contemporary recording software. The software brings with it “a huge levelling of the playing field,” Smith said, explaining that, in the past, paying for studio time was far too expensive for most bands to afford. Using modern technology doesn’t necessarily mean compromising classic sounds for stock electronic filler. Project Et3rnity does not use synthetic beats in the form of drum machines, but prefers using digital software to “capture an organic experience,” Smith said. Once an album is recorded, the next step

chart isn’t good enough for Project Et3rnity, the true litmus test rests with live performances. Bettz and Smith are organizing the first official Freedom Fest, where they and a handful of other bands will perform on April 20 at Riverside Park. “There are a lot of unknown artists in this area,” Bettz said. Freedom Fest will be an excellent opportunity to see them perform live.

What is behind the artist’s creative process?

T

HE OTHER DAY, ONE OF MY STUDENTS asked me why I make art. It got me thinking — why does anyone make art? What are the driving factors in creativity? Is it something we are born with? Or, is creativity forged out of necessity? Speaking from my experience, I started painting out of a need to get out what was going on inside of me. It later became a form of art therapy which lasted until my late 30s. Now, I paint mainly because I am curious. I ask lots of questions, explore ideas and record thoughts, feelings and emotions. I enjoy the process of interpreting the world around me. These days, a great deal of my creative energy is focused elsewhere — but painting will continue to be my first and best creative joy. I asked the same question — why do you make art? — to a few local artists and this is what they said.

September Kuromi I drew horses when I could first make out forms at three or four years old. All my people had belly buttons and the horses had a ‘rein’ around their neck. Something about the form, the strength and the variety of horses makes it possible to endlessly depict in them artwork. Even in my career of 15 years in information technology, every notebook, textbook and handout was filled with drawing and doodles. At some point, I decided to get out there

and display and sell my artwork. I love to do commissions — the challenge of capturing the personality in a drawing is something I find rewarding. To me, making art is like walking . . . I could lie on the couch one day and still survive, but when I am creating and producing something I am pleased with it makes me feel alive. September Kuromi’s favorite medium is drawing with graphite, but she is also a painter and a sculptor. Her art can be found at septembersart.wordpress.com.

Karla Pearce The Creative EDGE

Ben Eastabrook There are numerous reasons why I make art — to relax, to exhibit, to express, to kill time, to give, to get, to enjoy, to imagine, to tell a story, to make a point. But, originally, and probably most important of all, it is to feel purpose. As far back as I can remember, I have created art with no real reason. As a child, I drew and doodled — which continued into high school, when I also began to make a few sculptures and paintings in art class. It wasn’t until after graduating and working less-than-desirable jobs for six years that I considered art to be a viable career option. I remember very clearly one particular night looking at my reflection in the win-

dow at work and seeing myself stare back from behind the counter — in an unflattering brightred uniform. It was the look in that reflection’s visage that caused me to quit my job and enrol in university. I make art because it gives me a sense of purpose. Ben Eastabrook graduated from Thompson Rivers University with a BFA in 2011. While working primarily in sculpture and print-making, he will utilize the medium that he feels will best translate his idea and/or vision.

Lance Weisser I have been painting exclusively in watercolour for nearly 50 years. I was 17 when my teacher told me to choose a medium and stay with it for my lifetime. He wisely said that, if it was to be watercolour, it would likely take my lifetime to understand it. And, I have never regretted the choice I made — watercolour is my teacher and leader and I enjoy following what it wants me to do.

‘I make art because I have to — I get grumpy and confused if I don’t’ XFrom B4

Because of watercolour, I am given its gift of seeing the world through its eyes. It is such a lively medium that rather than me making watercolours, watercolours make me. My job is to follow its lead and read what it wants me to do next. Lance Weisser has been a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, has a BFA from Stephens College, Columbia, Missouri, and is one of 11 artists in the co-op of The Old Courthouse Gallery. His website is weisserwatercolours.com.

Blue Ridge Mountain (left), is one of Lance Weisser’s works, while the sculpted creature above, O2, was made by Ben Eastabrook. The piece shown on Page B1 is called Storm, by Karla Pearce.

Una Connor Just give me a medium and I will create something from it. I am OK with trying, experimenting, making mistakes, finding beauty everywhere and accepting. I’m no longer seeking outside approval. If I did not make art, I would not be. When I need to be comforted and nurtured, I turn inward to my beautiful creative self and indulge in a place where time stands still — in the moments of creation. I find insight and clarity in these timeless places, and I fall into a sort of knowing. Before I know it, something profound has come out of this process. That could mean answers from within or an amazing piece of art — or both. I make art because I have to. I get grumpy and confused if I don’t. Una Connor is a self-taught multi-medium artist. Her website is unacreations.ca.

Street Sweeping - Parking Restrictions

Spring Cleaning Street Sweeping Notice Starting mid-March, weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the city. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete. In an effort to reduce sweeping time and costs, signs will be posted in the areas that are being swept advising the public not to park on the street. Some high density areas will have parking restrictions posted and/or notices delivered in advance of sweeping, for example, downtown east. Residents who wish to sweep the area in front of their property are advised to remove the pile of sand accumulated as these piles can damage a sweeper, and operators are instructed to swerve around such piles. Your cooperation is appreciated. Inquiries can be made by calling 250-828-3461.

In order to accommodate the City with annual spring street cleaning, residents on the following streets are advised of temporary No Parking Restrictions.

WEEKLY CROSSWORD

Spring into Wellness at this fair Healthy living is an issue for everyone — but, when you live with a developmental disability, it can sometimes be an issue difficult to address. Things like remembering portion sizes or making sure your blood pressure is good can often get overlooked when every day brings with it challenges and hurdles most people don’t face. The staff of the health services for community living department of the Interior Health Authority have taken that reality as a goal to address with Spring Into Wellness, a health fair designed for disabled adults. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday, March 25, various health-care providers and other agencies will be at Kamloops United Church, 421 St. Paul St., to talk about issues such as blood pressure,

Thompson Rivers University nursing student Shea Hrycan and Becky Rugolo with the Interior Health Authority’s health services for community living are ready for the Monday, March 25, health fair aimed at disabled adults.

dental health, disease prevention, healthy lifestyles, immunizations and hand hygiene, with each display or discussion geared to the population the staff work with most often. Becky Rugolo, a nurse with the unit, said the fair is designed for adults living with disabilities, their families, their friends, their caregivers and other health-care professionals with whom they might interact.

It’s open to youth as well, Rugolo said, since they, too, will some day be adults living with developmental challenges. The fair is being staged with the support of third-year nursing students at Thompson Rivers University and in partnership with the City of Kamloops. It’s free and every visitor will receive a welcome package of information.

Sweet But ter R lls o From The Shoofly Project 3 1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 cup cool water 2 1/4 tsp. instant yeast 3/4 tbs. salt 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/2 cup milk powder 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature 1 egg (for eggwash) In the bowl of a stand mixer, fitted with the dough hook, combine first seven ingredients. Turn mixer on lowest speed and mix for three minutes. Let dough rest for five minutes, then mix again on low for another two to three minutes, or until dough passes the windowpane test. (Windowpane test: Pinch a small piece of dough and spread it apart with your fingertips to try and create a translucent pane. If the dough tears, mix it again for another minute and then retest. If the dough stays intact and creates the translucent pane, it’s ready to go!) Transfer dough to a lightly-oiled mixing bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Let rise for one hour, then punch down. Let rise for another hour. Transfer to lightly floured surface. Divide into 12 portions. Shape into balls and let them rise again, on parchment-lined baking sheet, for another 30 to 60 minutes (until, when touched lightly they don’t spring back). Preheat oven to 375 F. Bake rolls 15 minutes, brush with eggwash, rotate, and bake about 15 minutes. (For eggwash, beat egg with a Tablespoon of water. Brush a bit onto each roll for a shiny surface.) Let cool on a wire rack.

A cyclist’s dream in Quebec By Cherie Thiessen

TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES

HE CYCLE TRAIL, FRINGED WITH wildflowers, licked by lakes and crossed by languid rivers, dawdles in Quebec’s Laurentians under sun-speckled sylvan canopies and lakes. Although there’s one stretch that climbs 221 metres, we hardly notice. Once a humming railway line, the route — fondly known by its moniker, Le P’tit Train du Nord — is the longest linear park in Canada at just over 200 kilometres. Quebec did it right from the get-go. Once the train made its last journey on November 15, 1981, the rail bed was one of the first in Canada to be converted into a park. By 1996, the rails disappeared, the tracks became a trail and the route was immediately enjoyed by a new generation with re-designed vacation ideas. For us, “soft adventure” has just been re-designed too. Never has it been so plush. Over two thirds paved, even the route’s rougher southern section is easily traversed by thin tires. The odyssey begins at bustling Saint-Jérôme, only a half-hour’s drive from Montreal’s airport. There we join the battalion of bikers at the Comfort Inn, close to the southern terminus of what was once the Canadian Pacific Railway’s short but sweet northern line. The next morning, the historic station hums with colour and energy as vivid lycra-sporting cyclists of all ages begin their cycle north or wait along with us for the increasingly busy shuttle started by Aline and Maxime Raymond 16 years ago. Operating out of a railway icon — an old red caboose — they offer bike rentals, luggage transport, and a bike and passenger shuttle service to the northern terminus of Mont-Laurier with stops en route as requested. This morning, 12 of us crowd into the bus — 10 going to Mont-Laurier and two hardy cousins exiting at Mont-Tremblant Tourist Village, for the 91-kilometre return. Two hours later, our coterie is in Mont-Laurier buying food from the adjacent supermarket, checking out the old station and obtaining information from the volunteer patrol — two of 40 cyclists who regularly cover the route to offer assistance.

There are many ways to experience Le P’tit Train, and Jean-Claude Lancup from Voyageur B & B in Mont-Tremblant has come up with a great way to package them all. He organizes tours lasting from two to six days, booking small quality inns (auberges) along the route, arranging for dinners, and co-ordinating daily luggage pickup and delivery to each venue so that cyclists can concentrate solely on the trail and leave the pleasures at the end of each day to gently unfold.

FAITH

Escaping death by experiencing the rapture

[JESUS] WAS taken up before their very eyes and a cloud hid him from their sight.” After the resurrection, Jesus visibly ascended into heaven. It is a cornerstone of the Christian faith that the physical remains of Jesus are nowhere on earth and that he went straight to heaven. Indeed, some argue the empty tomb is a much more meaningful symbol of our faith than the instrument of Roman execution, the cross, because it emphasizes the power of God over death. Given our society’s pre-occupation with youth and avoiding the ravages of old age, the idea that it is possible to escape physical death is an intriguing one. The bodily ascension of Jesus into heaven has

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH been a popular subject in religious art for centuries (check out Google images for a wide sampling). The Bible tells of two other individuals who went straight to heaven without dying. The first one mentioned is Enoch (Genesis 5). We don’t know much about Enoch, but the most important thing about him is that he “walked with God.” In other words, he had a very intimate relationship with God.

The writer of Hebrews says: “By faith Enoch was taken from this life, so that he did not experience death . . .” I’m reminded of the story of a saintly old man, who, when asked what he knew about God, replied, “I don’t know very much, but I do know that He is very fond of me.” God was especially fond of Enoch and, as a reward, “. . . God took him away.” The “death” of the great prophet Elijah was much more dramatic. Elijah was with his disciple, Elisha, when his time came. “As they were walking along and talking together, suddenly a chariot of fire and horses of fire appeared and separated the two of them and Elijah went up to heaven in a whirlwind.”

(2 Kings 2:11). Elijah’s stature as a great man of God is emphasized in his reappearance with Jesus at his transfiguration (Matthew 17). In Catholic tradition, Mary, the mother of Jesus, was assumed into heaven, which is why there is no “tomb of Mary” with bones inside recognized by the Christian Church. In the tradition of the Eastern Church, Mary did die, but was resurrected after three days (i.e. they do recognize a tomb of Mary, but it does not contain any remains). The Roman Catholic catechism says, “when the course of her earthly life was finished, [Mary] was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory . . .” The question of Mary’s actual physical death is not made clear,

only that she was taken bodily into heaven. You may have seen those bumper stickers that say, “In case of rapture, this car will be unmanned.” This is a reference to the concept believers who are alive during the second coming of Christ will be bodily taken straight to heaven (rapture comes from the Latin word “raptus,” to take or seize). “For the Lord Himself will come down from heaven, with a loud command, with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet call of God, and the dead in Christ will rise first. After that, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up [raptured] together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.” (1 Thessalonians 4:16, 17). In 1985, a psychol-

ogy professor at the University of Victoria once ridiculed me in front of the class because I said I was a Christian. Later, in an exercise where we had to state how we thought we would die, I said I wasn’t going to die, but be raptured (yes, I was getting a little revenge). I don’t know if that will be the way I’ll go. The point I am making is heaven is a choice all of us can make — and it depends entirely on our

walk with God, who has shown special favour to a handful of individuals by allowing them to escape death altogether. He has also promised his faithful ones will not have to wait for death to be with him when he comes again—they will be raptured immediately into heaven. And that is a blessing for which we can all hope. Email Faith submissions to kamloopsthisweek.com. Write between 600 and 800 words.
