Ajax: City opposition not applicable By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

In January 2012, former Ajax mine project manager Jim Whittaker effectively handed Kamloops city council a veto over the controversial proposed copper and gold mine. “If any one of the levels of government says no, this project will not go ahead,” Whittaker told media following a presentation at city council. The five levels Whittaker cited included the federal and provincial governments, the ThompsonNicola Regional District, First Nations bands in the area — and the City of Kamloops. However, in advertisements published last week, including in the March 26 edition of Kamloops This Week, KGHM Ajax is now claiming Whittaker, who is no longer with the company and who is not named in the ad, “misunderstood the process” by which the mine is granted approval. The ad points to the provincial and federal government ministers officially responsible for making the decision as the people who “have the final say on whether or not our project is approved.” That means the mine’s proponents would go ahead with their project with provincial and federal approval even if city council officially opposes it, KGHM Ajax spokesman Yves Lacasse confirmed to KTW. “The EAO (B.C. Environmental Assessment Office) and the CEAA (Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency) will be making recommendations to the provincial and federal ministries and these are the people that will have the final say in this process,” Lacasse said. “We certainly value mayor and council’s input and opinions, just like any member of the community. But, the process is what I just explained.” Whittaker left the role of project manager for Ajax when KGHM International took over mine operations from his company, Abacus Mineral Exploration, in September 2012. “I don’t know why Mr. Whittaker would have made those comments,” Lacasse said. “I cannot explain that.”

Shutdown to mean fewer stinky days? By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops will see fewer smelly air days now that Domtar’s A-line pulp machine has ceased production. Kristin Dangelmaier, environmental lead at the mill, said the line shutdown, which went into effect last week, will reduce emissions of sulphur dioxide by more than 90 per cent and will also cut down on the amount of particulate mat-

ter the mill pumps into the air. “Those are ongoing, sustained, permanent reductions,” she said. While the mill saw a rise in odour complaints last summer, Dangelmaier said that was due to unusual wind patterns that led to emissions from Domtar’s high stack being funneled directly into the city. “I would anticipate if we had those same winds this coming summer, we would not see the same type of response

from the community,” Dangelmaier said in reference to the A-line pulp machine shutdown. The mill’s closure will result in 125 job losses, which will come in phases throughout the spring. The company is closing the A-line, which produces pulp using sawdust, but will continue to produce pulp from wood chips on its B-line pulp machine, which it says it can sell more competitively.

Cardiac arrest in motel Kamloops RCMP are investigating after an unconscious 25-year-old man in full cardiac arrest was found in a room at the Desert Inn, 755 West Columbia St., on Monday, April 1. Ambulance and Kamloops Fire Rescue personnel restored a pulse and the man was taken to Royal Inland Hospital, where he was reported to be in critical condition. During that time, police discovered several people who had been in the room had left through a back door. A police tracking dog was brought in, but the people were not found. Mounties sealed the room and called in major-crime investigators, who will be searching the premises and canvassing the area looking for witnesses. A forensic-identification specialist has also been brought in to examine the scene.

SD73 to unveil budget tonight By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A fire at this rooming house on Seymour Street on the weekend is being treated as suspcious. There were no injuries reported. Andrea Klassen/KTW

FIERY WEEKEND IN CITY A fire at a rooming house on Seymour Street in downtown Kamloops on Saturday, March 30, is being treated as suspicious. The blaze at 331 Seymour St. was reported at about 11:15 p.m. When firefighters arrived, the upper units of the building were engulfed in flames and the roof was destroyed. Lower housing units were heavily damaged by smoke and water and are not inhabitable. Emergency social services staff helped

find accommodation for the building’s residents, none of whom were injured. Mounties say all such fires are treated as suspicious until a complete site examination is done. Meanwhile, the investigation continues into another weekend fire in Kamloops. A blaze at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday, March

31, in the Oak Dale Mobile Home Park in Westsyde damaged a trailer and sent its 59-year-old female resident running for safety. Police say the woman first noticed flames coming from the deck side of her trailer as she walked down a hallway inside the home. She said she had been on the telephone

and did not smell any smoke or hear any noise before seeing the flames. Mounties say interviews with residents of the mobile-home park, many of whom are seniors and retired people, revealed no information on anything suspicious. Kamloops Fire Rescue continues to probe both blazes.

Fifteen years ago, it wasn’t unusual to see 500 students registered in Clearwater schools. Today, that number has dropped to about 200, said Denise Harper, and it’s indicative of the ongoing reality faced by the KamloopsThompson school district. The board of education chairwoman said the budget being presented today (April 2) for the upcoming fiscal year should contain no surprises for anyone. Enrolment is down in secondary schools. It is also down from the numbers registered last year for kindergarten but, Harper said, 2012 had a “surprisingly high” enrolment in that first step of public education. “People are having smaller families,” Harper said, “and we will never return to the levels we had in the 1980s. “And that’s hitting the rural schools really hard.” Harper doesn’t anticipate any problems sticking to the mandatory balanced-budget format required by the provincial government, even though negotiations continue with the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which represents support staff in the district’s schools.

“We’re anticipating a CUPE settlement and we sincerely hope they receive a salary increase and that the ministry funds it,” Harper said. The budget addresses known coming expenses — payments for staff participation in pensions and the provincial medical program, for example. The board also knows another truth — at the end of the school year, some teachers will be declared surplus because of decreasing enrolment. Most teachers will receive their layoff notices knowing that, once school starts again in the fall and classes start to fill, they will be reinstated, although not always in the speciality they have been in previously or in which they want to teach. “It’s sad to see them go through that,” Harper said, noting teachers in the secondary system, which has seen ongoing declining enrolment, are most affected. The budget will be presented to the media tonight at 6:30 p.m. and then presented to the public at 7 p.m. at the school district office, 1383 Ninth Ave. The public session will be available to residents in Barriere, Chase, Clearwater and Logan Lake via videoconferencing at the same time.

Police probe musical burglary Police are looking for help from the public to find those responsible for burglarizing a house in the 600-block of Norbury Road on Thursday, March 28, between 8:30 a.m. and 9 a.m. The homeowner,

who had left the Westsyde residence for about half an hour, returned to discover the back door open, music playing and the master bedroom ransacked. Electronic equipment, including a flatscreen television, and

jewelry were taken. Police are hoping someone saw a suspicious vehicle in the area at that time or people carrying a flat-screen TV. Those with information are asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.

Regional science fair fascinates again By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s really just one way to describe the Cariboo Mainline Regional Science Fair in Jake Schmidt’s mind. Cool. Totally cool, if you need more descriptors. The gathering of would-be scientists — and students who are simply looking for the answer to a question — takes over the gymnasium at Thompson Rivers University from Wednesday, March 3, to Friday March 5. The first night, Schmidt said, is for setup, after which the doors open to the public to check out the research.

Schmidt, principal of Bert Edwards science and technology school, is also the head judge, a position he has held for six years. He works with a variety of volunteers who will review the 180 projects, talking with the students, reading their overviews and conclusions and, Schmidt said, getting a lot back from talking with the students. “We get a lot of return judges because of this,” he said. “And, when they’re done, there are huge smiles all around. It’s just so cool.” Older students taking part in the annual event tend to have their eye firmly planted on their future and are hoping to receive some of the

scholarships available for those who win at this level before moving to the national level. There, even larger monetary assistance is available for those who want to take their curiosity and learn more in a university or college setting. The fair is open to students from grades four to 12, said teacher and volunteer Tracy Poelzer. Within that body of study are categories both grade- and topic-related. Sometimes the projects are part of curriculum taught in class, she said, and other times they are the result of a question that popped into a student’s mind that had to be answered. In fact, Schmidt said,

in that pursuit of the answer “they sometimes don’t even realize they’re doing science.” Five students and their projects will be chosen from entrants in grades seven to 12 to move on to the national level, which will be held in Lethbridge from May 11 to May 18.

Claire Halston was in Grade 5 at Dallas elementary in 2008 when she wowed the science fair crowd with her What Kind of Bubble Gum Makes the Biggest Bubble? project. Five years later, the regional science fair continues to amaze, with this year’s edition taking over the gym at Thompson Rivers University from Wednesday, April 3, to Friday, April 5. KTW file photo

Daily News hands lot management to Impark

FEATURES

The parent company of the Kamloops Daily News is handing off management of the newspaper’s offstreet parking lot to Impark, but the paper’s publisher said staff will still have a place to park. Tim Shoults told KTW that Impark began managing the lot for Glacier Media on Monday, April 1. “They will sell parking on the lot and also do the patrolling,” he said. Shoults said the Impark agreement is more efficient for Glacier. “We’ve rented parking spaces to private parties and other local businesses on an ongoing basis since we’ve owned the lot, but it’s been on a more haphazard basis,” he said. Shoults wasn’t sure how many spaces would be added to Impark’s stock, though he said a “significant” portion of the lot would still be reserved for Daily News staff and visitors. Staff at the Impark offices were also unable to say how many paid spaces would be available to the public.

Donovan Cavers, one of two Kamloops councillors on record as opposing the mine, said he is disappointed to see the company back away from Whittaker’s comments. “I was hoping that when KGHM took over, they inherited the mine as well as all the commitments that had been made previously to the community,” Cavers said. “It was kind of a slap in the face to see that ad saying that’s not the case.”

Coun. Tina Lange said the ad tells her KGHM Ajax isn’t interested in listening to Kamloopsians. “They’re saying, ‘What you feel about our project is not going to affect the outcome.’ That’s what that message is to me,” Lange said. “I’m surprised, quite frankly, that they would say that.” John Schleiermacher of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association believes Whittaker was right. While the city may not officially have a veto, Schleiermacher said “if any level

of government is against this mine, it should not go ahead.” Though opposition from city council won’t stop the project, Schleiermacher said it is still important that the city take an official position. “I believe that council speaks for 90,000 people and, if 90,000 people, or the majority of those 90,000 people, are against this mine — and that’s my understanding, that the majority of people are against this mine — then city council should stand behind those people that put them in office,” he said.

Forecast: Retirement with a chance of golf STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

His retirement had been official for a few days, but one of the first things Jim Steele did on the phone with KTW was talk about the weather. “The weekend was nice. Well, part of it. Well, Friday,” the longtime Environment Canada meteorologist for Kamloops amended during the late-March discussion. “But it’s March. That’s what happens. Nobody said March is always nice.” His impression of this past weekend, and its summer-like glory, would have had Steele raving. Steele spoke with an eye to the rounds of golf he’s hoping to get in after more than 40 years of forecasting, which came to an end on March 15. During that time, the job he secured by answering an ad in the newspaper took him across Western Canada. He has worked at busy stations in Edmonton, Calgary and Victoria, manned the Yukon forecast centre in Whitehorse and experienced 24-hour days and nights in the high Arctic. Between that were

two stints forecasting at the Olympics — Calgary in 1988, Vancouver in 2010 — and one at the Commonwealth Games. In each place, there are memories of the weather. “I saw my first minus 50 in Whitehorse and that was an experience that you go, ‘Eh, that’s all very nice, but that’s enough,’” he said. “I don’t think I ever want to see that again. There’s nothing kind to say about minus 50 or lower.” In Alberta, there were hail storms that would strip leaves off trees and send construction materials flying through the air. “People in Kamloops would go. ‘Wow, you’ve got to be kidding,’” Steele said. In Inuvik and Cambridge Bay, it’s the blizzards he remembers, raging for days, where, he said, “you can hardly see your hand in front of your face.” Kamloops’ weather may be mild by comparison, but Steele said that doesn’t make forecasting in the Interior a breeze. “I don’t think there’s any place that’s easy to do weather forecasting that I’ve ever worked at,” Steele said. “They all have their own little tricks they’re

going to throw at you.” In Kamloops, it’s wind patterns that can make or break weather predictions. An unexpected southern wind, for instance, can bring rain or snow

that a southwestern current won’t. While computer modelling has improved vastly since Steele’s early forecasting days, when weather maps were plotted by hand, those little tricks are one reason he thinks a 3D model of the atmosphere will never completely replace meteorologists. “They’re still just a guide. You’ve got to put some human smarts into it too,” he said. Steele’s departure from Environment Canada also signals the end of a weather office in Kamloops.

Kelowna and Vancouver will pick up the slack. It’s a change that’s been coming ever since the government closed most of its weather stations in 1995, Steele said. The Kamloops station has operated as a satellite operation for most of his 19 years in the Tournament Capital. But, while he will no longer be doing the forecasting himself, Steele said he will still be watching the weather in Kamloops. After all, he’s got rounds of golf and fishing trips to schedule.

LOCAL NEWS She won’t quit her day job — which is fantastic news for pedestrians everywhere. KTW reporter Andrea Klassen took part in BC Transit’s annual roadeo, an event that gave non-transit drivers a chance to drive a bus. Needless to say, Klassen’s resume will not be finding its way to BC Transit offices any time soon.

ANDREA KLASSEN’S SHOCKING CONFESSION:

‘I AM THE WORST BUS DRIVER!’ By Andrea “Cone Killer” Klassen STAFF REPORTER/NON-BUS DRIVER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T BECOMES CLEAR THAT MY run through BC Transit’s “roadeo” obstacle course is not going to end well when, about two minutes into the ride, I am forced to stop my 40-foot bus so scorekeepers can fish a traffic cone I’ve been dragging along out from under my wheels. Make that two cones. The roadeo has only one event — an obstacle course using standard city buses. Competitors include Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA Terry Lake, Mayor Peter Milobar and Thompson Rivers Student Union president Dustin McIntyre — all of whom are, apparently, better qualified to drive a load of transit users than me. (At the time of this writing, only McIntyre’s run was complete, but I feel pretty solid predicting he will remain alone in that regard.)

The course, set up at the transit yard on Ord Road on a sunny Thursday afternoon (March 28), is simple enough. Take a left turn, pull up to a curb, drive through two lines of tennis balls without displacing any. After that, it’s a matter of executing another turn, backing up, gunning the motor for a run between another set of pylons, and coming to a sharp stop. Simple in theory, anyway. By the time my run, the fourth of eight in the roadeo, comes to an end, I have lost track of the number of cones I have

knocked over. A dozen? Maybe, if we’re being conservative. “I’ve never seen anyone do the backup like that,” BC Transit spokeswoman Meribeth Burton says in almost complimentary tones. “You somehow managed to hit the cones on both sides.” My driving coach for the run, the exceedingly calm Chris Cadarette, tries to offer encouragement. “You only took out more cones than everyone else,” he says. “That’s all.” Besides the exercise in humility, Burton says the roadeo helps illustrate the challenges transit drivers face on the road every day — though contestants get to miss out on the passenger aspect and don’t have to worry about being cut off by other drivers. “Everything out there [on the course] is something a driver would face in a week,” Burton says, “and under more extreme circumstances.” I opt to not hand in my resume.

RCMP, IHA team up to tackle mental-health issues By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Interior Health Authority and the Kamloops RCMP are partnering to ensure there is one officer available to assist with police calls involving mental-health issues. The officer will be part of a team that includes a psychiatric nurse who will respond to calls alongside the specially trained officer. The officer and nurse will be based out of the North Kamloops community-policing office. Among the goals of the

partnership are reducing the number of repeat calls for police intervention with people who have a mental illness, reducing the number of emergency-department visits to Royal Inland Hospital, freeing up other officers to deal with other calls and improving health services and outcomes for clients. Rae Sampson, the IHA’s mental-health and substanceuse manager for Kamloops, said the partnership will help ensure people are connected to the services they need. It’s an outgrowth of work that has been done at the IHA’s

King Street clinic that provides primary care to clients with mental-health issues and assists in connecting them with the appropriate services. The partnership will be reviewed and can be renewed annually. RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said the position will be paid for through internally allocated resources, noting that, despite city hall not deciding to include funding for a mental-health officer in its budget, the detachment can decide how to allocate its overall funding. “One initiative addressed the increased volume of calls

for police service where the underpinning cause of a person’s aberrant, dangerous or self-destructive behaviour is rooted in a mental-health crises as opposed to being criminally motivated,” Learned said. “The other initiative was to provide a higher capacity of oversight, maintenance and follow-up to the increasing number of calls for service relating to incidents of domestic violence. “We were granted funding for a position. With this position funding, we have internally allocated resources to address our needs.”

Is Pacific Carbon Trust a boon or bust for British Columbia?

I

S THE PACIFIC CARBON Trust (PCT) and the associated carbon tax a crucial way to reduce greenhouse gases or a complex, bogus arrangement that has seen scarce taxpayer cash in education and health care diverted to pay for millions of dollars of work done on facilities owned by multi-billion-dollar corporations? Critics would side with the latter, pointing to last week’s auditorgeneral’s report and the fact virtually no private businesses have done voluntarily what most public institutions must do by law — give money to the PCT for the carbon they produce. That money — millions of dollars from hospitals and school boards and the like — is paid to the PCT, which then gives it to private companies to undertake emissionsreduction projects. The B.C. Liberals, who created the tax in 2008 and the Pacific Carbon Trust two years later, would argue the entire scheme is worthwhile and have given reasons why in press releases that followed Auditor General John Doyle’s report on the PCT. Doyle came to the conclusion the province has not, contrary to B.C. Liberal claims, achieved carbon neutrality. Doyle cited two projects — energy-efficiency upgrades at an Encana plant and another dealing with preserving a section of forest from logging — as being not credible as examples of carbon offsets. Doyle’s report was at first

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS delayed after it was subject to a concerted effort by the PCT and allies in trying to discredit the AG’s report even before it was released. The PCT reportedly spent $100,000 of taxpayer’s money in this campaign. The fact many offset projects were, apparently, done outside the rules of the PCT (as documented by Vancouver Sun reporter Gordon Hoekstra in a series of articles) is one concern. Of more concern is the fact health and education dollars are being spent on emissions-control projects for companies worth billions of dollars. If climate change and the need to reduce greenhouse gases are of utmost importance, why are these companies not investing in cleaner technologies with their own money? Why is the Kamloops-Thompson school board — like all school boards perpetually strapped for cash — paying about $60,000 a year into a fund so private corporations can undertake such projects? Why is 99 per cent of the money

being paid into the Pacific Carbon Trust taxpayer dollars, its payment mandatory, not voluntary? Can the B.C. Liberals claim the province’s public-sector truly is carbon neutral when a number of polluters are not included in the carbon count, including the emissions from BC Ferries vessels, the emissions from all school buses and the emissions from all companies contracted by the provincial government? Can B.C. claim to be carbon neutral with each load of coal that leaves the province for coal-fired plants in China? After all, Mother Nature does not recognize borders when doling out carbon emissions. Even if the PCT has succeeded in achieving what its proponents claim it has achieved, where is the influx of other jurisdictions in North America joining the cause? The carbon tax is five years old and, according to the Carbon Tax Centre, no state or province has joined B.C. (In 2007, Quebec was, officially, the first jurisdiction in North America to introduce a carbon tax, although its rate of taxation is much smaller than that in British Columbia.) As many a critic has pointed out, buying offsets in carbon-trading programs like the PCT does much to reduce one’s greenhouse-emissions guilt, but may do little to actually reduce greenhouse gases. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

Scott Bailey is an executive project director at the BC Environmental Assessment Office. Earlier this year, Bailey gave a lengthy presentation at Thompson Rivers University, explaining how the process works when a mine application is received by the provincial government. During that presentation, Bailey made it clear those involved in the process, including himself, do not care — and cannot care — whether a mine is ultimately approved or rejected. Bailey and all others studying the data to form the information that will result in a report to be sent to Victoria and Ottawa only care that all information is gathered dispassionately. It will then be up to the provincial and federal environment ministers to give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down on any application — including the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen. An entity that does not have any thumbs to give on the Ajax proposal is the city into which part of the mine would operate and onto which it would impact. The City of Kamloops has no more input than Joe Sixpack. However, in January 2012, thenproject head Jim Whittaker explicitly told city council the mine would not proceed as envisioned without council’s support. At the time, the declaration was seen as a stand the company did not have to take, but did so as an important gesture to the community. Today, Whittaker is no longer part of the company as the Polish mining giant KGHM has taken full control. Part of that control has been to dismiss, in advertisements, the commitment made by Whittaker. The about-face has obviously distressed Ajax opponents who already did not trust the company and has elicited harsh words from councillors Donovan Cavers and Tina Lange. If city council ultimately opposes the Ajax proposal, yet the project as now envisioned is approved at the provincial and federal levels, can the company truly claim to be a community partner?

Q&A

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Bass column: Let’s petition to stop these petitions and get talking: “Hear! Hear! “Political parties and candidates during elections get hundreds of identical petition emails a day. “If you ever want to turn somebody off your cause, just sign an online petition and help to clog up their inbox. It’s completely ineffective. “I ashamedly admit that, out of sheer frustration, I sent one of these myself the other day, knowing full well it was a waste of electrons. In my nonprofit, patient work, I’m always urging people to write their personal, individual story to their representatives. “These start dialogue. These get action. I think sending the petition letter gives people a false sense of having done something.” — posted by Christine Clarke

Re: Story: Nice Road Trucker: They call him The Happy Christian: “I read the story at work. “It made me laugh out load. “Bible-thumpers never think about the ones their saviour didn’t save.” — posted by David Laibida

WE ASKED

We pledge to not attend Ajax-sponsored events Editor: Re: Bruce Stevens’ letter of March 21, in which he said he will not patronize businesses or groups that accept sponsorship from KHGM Ajax (‘Ajax is busy buying its way into Kamloops’): I think Western Canada Theatre’s Fiddler on the Roof would be a wonderful experience. But we (four of us) are not going.

Why? Because the proposed Ajax mine is a sponsor. The proposed Ajax mine cannot buy its way into my acceptance of a proposed destruction of our grasslands. Western Canada Theatre should have recognized that cheap trick and refused the proposed Ajax mine’s money. Christina Mader Kamloops

Premier shows neither candour nor accountability Editor: Well, it’s been more than two weeks since the release of John Dyble’s superficial report into the B.C. Liberals’ ethnic-voter quick-wins scandal. As yet, not one of his six recommendations have been acted on by Christy Clark’s beleaguered government. Despite the premier’s promise to take quick action

on Dyble’s report, she has since gone back to full-time campaigning, blithely ignoring its content. On a recent pre-election campaign visit to Kamloops, Clark avoided any mention of it at all. There are many reasons to believe Dyble’s report barely scratched the surface on this sorry episode in B.C. Liberal political trickery. Given Clark’s reluctance to

act on its recommendations, it appears she’s quite prepared to stonewall all attempts to widen the terms of reference of any related investigation, including questioning the four public-service outreach workers hired to do political work using taxpayers’ money. When she recently stated that B.C. Liberals would repay the $70,000 associated with salary payments made

to these individuals she flatly contradicted her previous assurance given in the legislature that no public funds had been expended in connection with this matter. Clearly, neither candour nor accountability from the premier will be a hallmark of the dying days of the B.C. Liberals’ reign of error. Peter Northcott Kamloops

A city public hearing where the public was not heard Editor: I learned something last week about the public-hearing process. A a home adjacent to our property was purchased recently. The new owner decided to take this property and request a rezoning so she could subdivide the property and construct a second home. We, and the neighbours in the immediate area, were very concerned about this as the new property would be considerably smaller than the surrounding lots. Also, the home being proposed for this property will be taller than anything else in the neighbourhood and will, therefore,

not integrate well. As a group, we were concerned enough to sign a petition and ask city council to deny the application. Twenty-seven residents of the homes immediately surrounding the property were opposed to the rezoning bid. Apparently, that was not enough opposition to convince council we did not wish to see this rezoning go through. Council’s response at the public hearing was to alter slightly the zoning requested (so the home cannot house a secondary suite) and to vote without consulting the residents who had

voiced their opposition. Who knew this was the correct and fair way to treat a group of concerned homeowners? Kudos to those councillors who spoke up, expressed concern for the 27 individuals who signed the petition, indicated there was enough opposition that the rezoning shouldn’t be forced into the neighbourhood and voted to deny the application.

COMMUNITY

Help your garden — and track and field club — grow A determined hammer-throw athlete will be out on the field, making those energydepleting swings most days of the week. They might throw that hammer up to 80 times during a week of practice, said Judy Armstrong, vice-president of the Kamloops Track and Field Club. Eventually, the equipment will break down and have to be replaced. “And,” Armstrong said, “track and field equipment isn’t cheap.” To help pay for new equipment for the programs the club runs and for all the other

work it does to promote track and field, exercise and community, the group has turned to manure for the past 14 years — and is taking orders this week for its 15th instalment of the sale. Two types are available: Aged mushroom manure at a cost of $8.99 a bag and horse manure for $7.99 a bag. Bags contain 60 pounds of the soil-enriching material, a fact to which Armstrong can attest because club members package up the equine contributions. Inmates at the Kamloops Regional

Order deadline for Kamloops residents is Friday, April 5, with deliveries — again by club volunteers — on Saturday, April 6. Mushroom manure is also available to gardeners in Barriere,

Chase, Logan Lake and Merritt. Residents of those communities have an order deadline of Wednesday, April 10, with delivery between Thursday, April 11, and Saturday, April 13. Armstrong said this is the only fundraising event for the club — and it’s one many are delighted exists. For example, she said, a woman in

Blazer Keys to Success

CATCHING UP

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

T

The Kamloops Blazers met goaltender Patrik Polivka and the Victoria Royals in Game 6 of a first-round WHL playoff series in the provincial capital on Monday, April 1, after KTW’s deadline. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for the result. The Blazers held a 3-1 series lead heading into a home tilt with the Royals on Saturday, March 30, but failed to strike the killer blow, losing 4-2 to the visitors from Vancouver Island. Should the Royals force Game 7, the seriesdeciding tilt will be held at Interior Savings Centre on Wednesday, April 3, with puck-drop slated for 7 p.m. Allen Douglas/KTW

HE KEY TO SUCCESS is handed out in the dressing room after every Kamloops Blazers’ win. “Every team in hockey does something since the hardhat started out and we wanted to come up with something unique and different,” Blazer trainer Colin (Toledo) Robinson said. “We came up with the Key to Success. “Guy [Blazer head coach Guy Charron] always talks about the key to tonight’s game, the key to success, and Hunch [associate coach Dave Hunchak] always follows up. “I said, ‘You two clowns are always talking about the key, so let’s hand out the key.’ “We started laughing and we ended up

going with it.” Coaches decide after each win which player deserves the award. The lucky Blazer fastens the key to a chain that hangs from a light fixture, assembled by Hunchak, an electrician by trade. “It could be a blocked shot, a fight to change momentum, a big goal or a big save,” Robinson said. “We have a sign by the fixture thingy that says ‘who wants it?’” The tradition caught on quickly and remains a staple of the Blazers’ post-win celebration. “We started doing it last season,” Robinson said. “It’s a good visual for the players. “They see it every time we win. We’ve had 40-plus wins, so there’s 40-plus keys on there. “They watch it grow.”

Pack dish out awards The TRU WolfPack’s annual year-end banquet was held last week at the university’s Grand Hall. Basketball players won the Sports Task Force athlete of the year awards, with Kevin Pribilsky picking up the men’s award and Diane Schuetze getting the nod on the women’s side. Pribilsky was a leader on and off the court for the men and Schuetze was a firstteam CIS all-Canadian. The Dr. Roger H.

Barnsley ScholarAthlete of the Year awards are given to the members of the Pack who combine athletic excellence with outstanding academic achievement. Men’s soccer player Justin Smeaton and women’s cross-country runner Rolena DeBruyn won the awards. Winning the Cliff Neufeld Leadership Awards were women’s soccer player Abbey McAuley and men’s volleyball player Spencer Reed.

Men’s soccer player Seb Gardner and men’s baseball player Kevin Cramer received Tyler Lowey awards, given to the comeback players of the year. Gardner returned to the field after being diagnosed with lymphoma, while Cramer made a comeback from a serious spinal cord injury. The WolfPack was sad to learn Gardner’s cancer has returned. He will undergo a second round of aggressive chemotherapy next month.

Hard work pays off for WCT staff Theatre company worked 18 months to land Les Mis By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Last month, during a press event offering a sneak peek at Western Canada Theatre’s production of Fiddler on the Roof, the company’s artistic director hinted at an ambitious future. Daryl Cloran said Kamloops theatre-lovers would see a high-reaching lineup for the 2013-2014 season. And, last week, he delivered. Cloran, alongside WCT general manager Lori Marchand, unveiled the schedule at Sagebrush Theatre on Thursday, March 28.

The most fanfare at the event was devoted to Les Miserables, a WCT production that will run at Sagebrush from Nov. 28 to Dec. 11. Marchand said it was a long process to land the rights to stage a production of the classic musical. “It has been tied up because of big productions down in the States and internationally,” she said, noting the process of securing rights and financing for Les Mis took about 18 months. “When it drops off those big international stages, a small window opens up for companies like us.” Up to this point, Fiddler on the Roof is the largest,

most-involved production WCT has staged. That will change when the curtain lifts on Les Mis later this year. “Les Mis, from a production standpoint, is even bigger,” Cloran said. “We’re doing it ourselves and it’s an even bigger cast than Fiddler is.”

Diverse lineup Marchand said she’s proud of the broad range of productions on WCT’s schedule for the 2013-2014 season. “There is a great diversity in the lineup,” she said. “There’s everything from a big Broadway musical to cutting edge First Nations work to the culturally relevant offerings at the Pavilion.” When trying to negotiate future production schedules, Marchand said,

TV psychic, author coming to Kamloops

Responsive, Reliable, Professional. The Industry Leader through Customer Choice

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

While she has claimed to channel the dead, diagnose ailments and foresee the future, Sylvia Browne is being asked more and more these days about something less specific — spirituality. And, if you’re asking about it, it lives somewhere within you, the author and self-described psychic said. Browne, 76, is heading to the Tournament Capital for the first time for a show on Wednesday, April 3, at the Kamloops Convention Centre. It will be her first time in Kamloops but, she said, she knows she will love it — because she feels that way about every Canadian community she visits. The trip is billed as her 50th Anniversary Tour but, she said, it’s really her 60th anniversary, having done her first professional reading when she was a teenager. People can expect a fastpaced show, Browne said. She starts by talking about spirituality and “how to protect yourself,” she said. “How to put a white light around yourself to keep evil out.” Then, she moves into discussion about meditation and, later in the evening, will take questions from the audience. Browne estimates she’ll handle from 200 to 300 questions. “I work very fast,” she said. Browne said she’s delighted when people want to talk about

their own spirituality and ask questions about it. “It makes me happy if people care if they are on track,” she said. “And you are if it dawns on you to wonder if you are. “Bad people wouldn’t care.” Browne has said her psychic ability appeared when she was three years old and she attributes it to genetics, noting her grandmother, great-uncle and son all have the same abilities. She had a long-running stint as a regular guest star on the Montel Williams Show and was a frequent guest of Larry King on his television talk show. She’s also been the source of controversy, with scientific skeptic James Randi claiming her

accuracy rate is no better than that of a person making an educated guess.

Local artist debuting exhibit at KAG this week Tournament Capital artist Tara Bauer will be exhibiting her work at the Kamloops Art Gallery beginning this weekend. The exhibit, entitled Tara Bauer: Place in Memory, will open with a reception on Saturday, April 6 at 6:30 p.m. at The Cube in the KAG. Place in Memory explores the relationship between people and place, revealing the common ground found in memories of significant spaces.

Bauer interviewed elderly people and asked them to describe important places to which they felt connected. She then created

paintings of the memories based on the interviewees’ descriptions. The paintings are overlaid with text taken from the interviews and memory maps

drawn by the subjects accompany some of the works. Place in Memory runs from April 6 to April 15 at The Cube in the KAG.

Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row, column, and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle.

THE XL EXCELS Hundai’s Santa Fe XL is a force to be reckoned with in the increasingly competitive CUV class STORY/A16

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 NISSAN TITAN SL. There was so much interior space, the most I’ve ever seen in a truck! I used the USB plugin for my iPhone to listen to my music and make calls using the dashboard controls. I was also impressed with the Rockford 10-speaker stereo and the automatic rear window. It even had an outlet in the bed and a secret storage compartment! It was a really smooth and fun truck to drive!

Thank you River City Nissan!

Hyundai goes extra large with new Santa Fe badge wheelstalk.com

W

ith five AJAC category wins over the last two years and numerous other accolades, Hyundai continues to ride high in many segments. Except where the Veracruz plays. Hyundai launched this vehicle in 2007 as a stylish alternative to the minivan, which they could see in its decline as buyers became less and less enamoured with these dreary domestic haulers. The Veracruz joined a growing segment that included Chrysler Pacifica, GMC Acadia/ Saturn Outlook/Buick Enclave, and Mazda CX-9. All offered three rows of seating; all were pricey. Unfortunately for the Veracruz, it came along at a time when Hyundai was still perceived as the builder of cheap and reliable vehicles, and a $40K crossover just didn’t fit in with the rest of the lineup — which was evident then and continues to show in lukewarm sales that last year managed a paltry 1,600 or so units. The Santa Fe nameplate, on the other hand, continues to move in huge numbers, topping 200,000 sold in Canada since its launch here in the 2000 model year. Indeed, among mid-size CUVs, the Santa Fe ranks No. 1 in nameplate awareness, sitting above key competitor Toyota Highlander. The Veracruz struggles at No. 16. So, in selecting a name for this all-new, six-to-seven-passenger intermediate CUV, Hyundai wisely steered away from “the all-new Veracruz” and instead chose the Santa Fe XL. And, no, this isn’t a nod to the ill-fated Excel compact sedan and hatchback from 20-plus years ago. At first glance, the new XL and the recently launched fivepassenger Santa Fe Sport look like twins, except for a noticeable increase in length. But, there are some key differences.

From the B-pillar back, the XL has its own bodyside character lines, unique side windows and different alloy wheels. In back are dual exhaust outlets and a flush-mounted tow hitch. Did Hyundai get it right? According to company research, exterior styling was the No. 18 reason for purchasing the previous generation Santa Fe. More importantly, it delivers a sizeable increase in interior volume. By adding 215 millimetres to overall length and 100 millimetres to the wheelbase, Hyundai was able to carve out another cubic metre of passenger volume and 240 litres of cargo space. All of that allowed them to add a real third row. Yes, the Santa Fe did once have a backbench, in the 2006 model. The problem was only the agility — and size — of a spider monkey would allow you in and out. So, the company wisely punted it the next year. In the 2013 XL, a full-sized adult can ride comfortably in the third row, with enough head and leg room for most. There are even separate HVAC controls on all trim levels except base. The standard 40/20/40 second row also benefits from the XL’s longer wheelbase, offering more legroom than the Sport. All seats, as you’d expect with today’s CUVs, fold to a flat cargo floor. Interior fit and finish, like the Sport, is a step up from its predecessor. There’s an abundance of softtouch materials and, depending on trim level, double-stitched leathers and faux leathers, metallic accents and available woodgrain. I like that there are leather choices other than black, such as the attractive saddle leather upgrade for top-trim Limited models. As you’d expect with Hyundai, even the base frontdrive model at $29,999 comes well equipped. Starting with the exterior, this includes 18-inch alloys, heated power mirrors, wiper de-icer, roof rails, fog

lights, and trailer prewiring. Premium ($34,999) adds some key features like all-wheeldrive, power tailgate, automatic climate control and rear parking assist, along with such niceties as heated steering wheel, heated rear seats, rear door blinds and HVAC in the third row. Luxury ($39,199) is expected to be the volume seller, and at nearly $40K, Hyundai notes that buyers expect premium content. In this trim, you get leather seating, power passenger seat, panoramic sunroof, rearview camera and upgraded touchscreen audio system. I spent a day in the Luxury model and, having driven many vehicles in this price range, will admit that Hyundai has checked all the boxes in terms of fit and finish, and for content as well. You do get a lot of vehicle for the money. Buyers feeling flush can opt for the Limited at $42,899 ($43,199 with saddle leather), but lose a seat as captain’s chairs replace the three-passenger 40/20/40 second row. There’s much more to say about the new XL and I have one booked for a longer test this spring. With this kind of vehicle, you really must take a week with the family to truly measure its daily comfort and utility. The 2013 Santa Fe XL is arriving at dealer showrooms now.

Numerous changes on the exterior make the all-new Hyundai Santa Fe look significantly more upscale than its predecessor. The seven-passenger XL, however, differs from the Sport not only in length (215 millimetres longer), but also in its unique character lines, side windows and alloy wheels. Like the Sport, the Santa Fe XL’s interior fit and finish (above) is much improved, with an abundance of softtouch materials and, depending on trim level, double-stitched leathers and faux leathers, metallic accents and available woodgrain.

AUTO MARKET

Chevy’s clean turbo-diesel Cruze is coming to Canada Chevrolet is entering the Canadian and U.S. diesel-car markets this summer with a 2.0-litre turbo-diesel version of its hottest-selling sedan, the Cruze — featuring the cleanest diesel passenger car engine General Motors has ever produced. Clean diesels generate at least 90 per cent less nitrogen oxide (NOx) and particulate emissions when compared to previous-generation diesels. Built in Lordstown, Ohio, the 2014 Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel delivers a combination of segmentleading features and efficiency. Based on GM testing, the Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel is expected to get as low as 4.6L/100 km highway fuel consumption. The compact sedan’s new 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine produces an estimated 148 horse power and 258 pound-feet torque wwith a zero-to-96 km/h time of 8.6 seconds — better than the Volkswagen Jetta TDI automatic and comparable to German diesel cars that domainate the North American market. Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel’s emissions will meet U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) stringent Tier 2 Bin 5 emissions standards. With a starting price at $24,945, plus a $1,550 destination charge (excludes tax, title, license, and dealer fees) Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel comes with a six-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel antilock disc brakes, 3.20 final drive ratio, 140-amp alternator, 800-cold-cranking-amps battery, 17-inch alloy wheels, ultra-low-rolling resistance all-season tires, rear spoiler, Aero Performance Package and leather-appointed seating. Other standard features include Chevrolet’s infotainment system MyLink, and a five-year/160,000kilometre powertrain warranty.

Sneezing? Try a Ford As spring arrives and more Canadians prepare to face allergies, the 2013 Ford Fusion can help combat common airborne and touchbased allergens while monitoring possible irritants in areas where customers are driving or planning to visit. Ford engineers tested more than 100 materials and components on the new Fusion and other Ford vehicles for allergy issues. Engineers avoid — or minimize — materials such as natural latex, hexavalent chromium and nickel, which can produce an allergic reaction in some people. Components requiring allergen testing include common hightouch areas such as the seats, steering wheel, armrests, door handles and shifters. Ford tries to reduce the irritation of allergens — associated with seasonal weather and possibly rash-inducing

materials — by testing its vehicles and installing cabin air filters that prevent airborne particles such as dust, spores, fungus and pollen from entering the vehicle. Cabin air filters improve driving comfort by reducing particle concentration, improve cleanliness and protect climate control components from particle deposits. These filters also capture soot, smog and tobacco smoke. Because of the seamless way in which it works, many customers may not realize they have a cabin air filter. In most cases, the filter is accessed through the glove box. Ford dealers change the filters as part of the recommended maintenance for all vehicles.

Turbocharging helps the Chevrolet Cruze Diesel provide a claimed segment-leading 148 horse power (estimated) and 258 pound-feet of torque (estimated) while managing an estimated 4.6L/100 km highway fuel consumption.

If I Knew If I knew it would be the last time That I’d see you fall asleep, I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord, your soul to keep. If I knew it would be the last time that I see you walk out the door, I would give you a hug and kiss and call you back for one more. If I knew it would be the last time I’d hear your voice lifted up in praise, I would video tape each action and word, so I could play them back day after day. If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare an extra minute to stop and say “I love you,” instead of assuming you would KNOW I do. If I knew it would be the last time I would be there to share your day, Well I’m sure you’ll have so many more, so I can let just this one slip away. For surely there’s always tomorrow to make up for an oversight, and we always get a second chance to make everything just right. There will always be another day to say “I love you,” And certainly there’s another chance to say our “Anything I can do?”

But just in case I might be wrong, and today is all I get, I’d like to say how much I love you and I hope we never forget. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike, And today may be the last chance you get to hold your loved one tight. So if you’re waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today? For if tomorrow never comes, you’ll surely regret the day, That you didn’t take that extra time for a smile, a hug, or a kiss and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out to be their one last wish. So hold your loved ones close today, and whisper in their ear, Tell them how much you love them and that you’ll always hold them dear Take time to say “I’m sorry,” “Please forgive me,” “Thank you,” or “It’s okay.” And if tomorrow never comes, you’ll have no regrets about today.

Sex and the Kitty A single unspayed cat can produce 470,000 offspring in just seven years. Sadly, most of them end up abandoned at BC SPCA shelters or condemned to a grim life on the streets. Be responsible - don’t litter.
