Mining for help can create controversy By Andrea Klassen
KGHM Ajax sponsorships
STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
The Kamloops Blazers, Western Canada Theatre, Communities in Bloom, the RCMP Ball — the list of sponsorships on the KGHM Ajax website goes on. In 2012, KGHM Ajax gave $115,000 in sponsorships and donations to non-profits, arts and sports groups in Kamloops. This quarter, it has given $40,000. But, organizations accepting money from the company hoping to build a copper and gold mine just south of Aberdeen may be facing a backlash from Ajax’s opponents. “My family, for one, will boycott any business sponsored by Ajax that we can,” Jody Neuls wrote on Facebook in response to a letter to KTW published in March, which accused KGHM Ajax of “bribing its way into acceptance” with sponsorship dollars. Neuls isn’t alone in expressing that sentiment as other residents have since made similar pledges online or in letters to the editor. Mark Wallin, chairman of the Kamloops Film Festival, said he received a few complaints about the com-

Aboriginal Mine Training Association pany’s sponsorship of this year’s event, but said it’s not his place to decide whether a legal organization with money to donate is good or bad. “I don’t really think anyone in the community wants me making political judgments
about what is an appropriate and inappropriate source of money,” he said in an email. “The only way for me to completely avoid being accused of having a political agenda is to accept money from whomever cares to donate it and use those funds to make something valuable and generative.” Mark McMillan, chairman of the Kamloops Cowboy Festival — of which KGHM Ajax is a silver sponsor — has a similar line of thought. “Just because Kal Tire sponsors us doesn’t mean I would necessarily go and buy my tires from there. I might support my sponsors, but there’s nothing saying I’m going to,” he said. “People know that we need sponsors and we need money to carry on or we wouldn’t be where we are. If somebody’s going to give us money, so be it. I’m sure the public understands that.” KGHM Ajax spokeswoman Robin Bartlett is aware of the criticism levelled at the company’s donations. But, she said, Kamloops is getting the same treatment as other communities where the company operates mines. X See AJAX A5

Plaza Hotel staff rally around co-worker By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When Bev Lloyd, night auditor at the Plaza Hotel, learned her 19 year-old son had been struck by a falling tree while working on Vancouver Island, her colleagues at the Victoria Street hotel began looking for ways to help. Shane Lloyd was on a job near Horne Lake when a tree he was felling with a friend came down on top of him, leaving him paralyzed. Two days of marathon surgeries followed in Vancouver — a seven-hour procedure to repair Shane’s severed aorta, another five hours to stabilize his spine. “It’s really incredible, actually, how this place came together when we heard about the accident,” said Plaza front-desk manager Robynn Smith. “Our pastry chef, Maggie, was the person that went with her to Vancouver when it happened, and our chef
Mike covered her shifts so she could go.” The rest of the Plaza staff set their sights on raising funds to keep Bev in Vancouver while Shane recovers. “That’s out goal, to keep her there and not having to worry about stuff here,” Smith said. “Also he’s going to need a custom wheelchair. He’s going to need new equipment. It’s a tough time for them.” Plaza staff will host a fundraising barbecue on Saturday, April 6, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the parking lot next to the hotel. They are also selling raffle tickets for $2, which will be available at the hotel’s front desk. Prizes, drawn at the end of April, include dinner and a night at the Plaza. While Shane remains in hospital in Vancouver, Smith said reports from Bev are encouraging. “The kid’s amazing. He’s already joking with nurses, eight days later, knowing he’s never going to walk again,” she said. “He’s got a pretty awesome spirit.”

School district studies its $125-million budget By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
The Kamloops-Thompson school district is used to declining enrollment. Itâ€™s been a fact of life for many years, although the indication is it is starting to show signs of levelling off, said superintendent Terry Sullivan. However, for the upcoming school year, the trend is expected to continue â€” and hit mainly the secondary-school level, Sullivan said during a media preview on Tuesday, April 2, of the proposed operating budget for the district for 2013-2014. Lower enrolment means teacher layoffs and implemenation of the seniority-bumping process that exists in the union contract. But, Sullivan said, â€œyou canâ€™t take a high-school physics teacher and put them into a kindergarten class.â€? That simple reality will make staffing difficult if the expected secondary enrollment comes in at 5,726 students in the district, Sullivan said, down from the 6,094 students in
grades 8 to 12 this school year. The goal is to avoid any staff layoffs. The decrease is expected across the board â€” rural and city schools alike â€” with one exception. A change in the catchment area a couple of years ago has resulted in increased enrollment at Valleyview secondary. The numbers arenâ€™t final yet, with the board inviting feedback and input, but the proposed budget has projected revenue for 2013-2014 at $125,521,237, down $320,565 from revenue received for the school year now in progress. To ensure the budget stays balanced, which it is required to do, the board will dip into its reserve fund for $250,000, board secretary-treasurer Kelvin Stretch said. It will take another $50,570 out of its First Nations reserve. Wages, benefits and expenses remain the most costly expense, with $59.395 million designated for teacher salaries, another $22 million for certified-education assistants (CEAs) â€” the new title for those previously known as student-support workers and, later, school-support workers. The board uses 1997 as a comparison year for many purposes because that was the date the Kamloops and
Clearwater boards amalgamated. At that time, there were 918.7 full-time equivalent teachers on staff, a number that has dropped to 745.7 today. A similar decrease in the number of principals and viceprincipals has occurred in the past 16 years, Stretch said, with 64.6 full-time equivalents in that category now, down from 79 at the time of amalgamation. There are more CEAs included in the budget for 20132014 compared to last year, with 55.7 full-time equivalents expected to be required. The current school year has 495.7 full-time equivalent positions in that group. Trustees and senior administrators met with the two unions representing board staff prior to the media presentation. A meeting for the district parent-advisory council and other interested members of the public was scheduled to follow, but no one showed up. Videoconferencing of the public session also saw only principals and vice-principals in Clearwater, Logan Lake and Barriere waiting for information. Sullivan said a final budget will go to the board for approval at its April 29 meeting.

Bartlett said it’s not as if the company is hunting down the groups to which it donates cash. “They usually come to us,” she said. “We don’t go out seeking opportunities to donate. We don’t go out asking where we can help out. They come to us.” Bartlett said the company plans to continue lending its financial support to community groups. While the film festival received criticism for accepting funds from Ajax, the B.C. Cowboy Festival hasn’t encountered a similar response. “I worried about that when we took the money on,” McMillan said, noting he never considered rejecting the donation. “We have not heard a single word about that from anybody.” Western Canada Theatre general manager Lori Marchand said she has had a handful of people email or call to express concerns about KGHM’s sponsorship. “The mine is a huge topic of debate, so I don’t think it was a surprise that people wanted
to understand and express their views. I think that’s all very healthy,” she said. But, Marchand doesn’t think it’s the theatre company’s place to decide whether the mine is good or bad. “The debate about the mine is within the community,” she said. “It isn’t within our mandate to have that debate. It’s to produce the best we can on the stage.” Kathy Humphreys, general manager of the Kamloops Symphony, said she hasn’t had any complaints about KGHM’s sponsorship of Fiddler on the Roof, which is a production of the symphony and Western Canada Theatre. “I’ve heard rumours, but I have not had anyone directly contact me and say there’s any action being taken or anything like that,” she said. Humphreys believes most people understand why non-profit groups would take KGHM’s money — noting a serious boycott of Ajax-sponsored events isn’t likely. “There’s very few things that
Silver & Gold
would be so controversial that you’d ever want to say, ‘No, we don’t want to take your money,’” she said. “If it was the proceeds of criminal activity or something like that, you might be saying, ‘No, thank you. We don’t want to be involved in that.’” Humphreys said. Thompson Rivers University vice-president of advancement Christopher Seguin said the university doesn’t take a position on Ajax, but has “a tradition of working closely with industry and having industry sponsorship.” The Highland Valley and New Gold mines are also frequent sponsors of TRU. For those pledging to boycott events receiving Ajax money, Wallin of the film festival suggests taking on bigger targets than a group of film enthusiasts. “Instead of going after the wealthy, multinational corporation, some would rather go after the non-profit, volunteer group that begs for money to survive,” he said. “Seems a bit backwards to me.”

Warning: Residential Natural Gas Banned In 10 Years People have this misconception that if you don't see smoke it must be good, when in fact fossil fuels are destroying mother earth with its invisible acidic arsenal. 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;

City employee charged in sex-cell scandal remains on payroll
Insanity: doing the same thing & expecting a different result.
- Rita Mae Brown
STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A city jail clerk charged in connection with the August 2010 sexcell scandal in Kamloops remains employed by the city — but he no longer works at the RCMP detachment. David Tompkins had his security clearance pulled by the RCMP following the alleged incident, according to City of Kamloops CAO David Trawin, who said Tompkins is employed as an “on-call labourer” and spent the winter months working as part of a snow-removal crew. Trawin said city staff will reevaluate Tompkins’ employment status once the criminal matters are concluded. As for the three Mounties charged with breach of trust, two — constables Evan Elgee and Stephen Zaharia — are back on the job, according to Sgt. Rob Vermeulen at RCMP E-Division headquarters. Vermeulen said Cpl. Rick Brown
remains “non-operational.” A preliminary inquiry into breach of trust charges against the quartet began in Kamloops on Tuesday, April 2, and is expected to last seven days. The four are accused of watching via video cameras in the cellblock area two female prisons in a cell engage in a sex act. Crown prosecutor Winston Sayson told Judge Chris Cleaveley that he and Crown prosecutor Jas Gahunia expect to call 12 witnesses. Sayson requested a ban on media coverage of the proceedings and the names of the two women involved, which Cleaveley imposed. However, much information is available to the public via a report into the incident by the Commission for Public Complaints Against the RCMP. That information can be read online at http://www.kamloopsthisweek.com/news/167881555.html and at http://www.cpc-cpp.gc.ca/cnt/ nrm/nr/2012/20120829-eng.aspx.

By all means, vote, but please do not believe all you hear
HE OFFICES ARE OPEN and the talking points are probably almost all memorized by now. For some of us, getting to May 14 has seemed to have taken a very long time, although it’s been a great ride for the folks in my business who cover politics. The stories have simply fallen into their laps as the province’s Liberals and New Democrats claw at each other — with the Conservatives trying to gather up whatever scraps are left from it all. Normally, I’d be writing a column telling you all to get out there and vote. I’d be saying you really don’t have any right to sit at home and complain if you do nothing to change the situation. It’s a mantra that was drilled into me as a child, long before I could ever cast a ballot, and it remains something I believe in all these decades later. I would also tell you that you owe it to every single one of those veterans — living and dead — who fought for you to have the right to complain, to have the right to simply put an X on a piece of paper. However, there’s a new side to this regular lecture and it’s one I really hadn’t ever expected to actually acknowledge, let alone write about. It’s simply this: Do not believe a single thing any of the candidates tell you when they say they will do something. They won’t. They will tell you they want to represent you, they want to do everything the can to make Kamloops better and they will be your voice in the legislature. What a pile of . . . well, you know. You’ve heard enough of it from them in the past four years.
DALE BASS Street
LEVEL No, do not buy that line they will spin out to hook you in. They will do absolutely nothing to make your life any better, to boost the city or region’s economy, to drive tourists and businesses here, to support our social sector, to strengthen that oh-sotattered social safety net — unless they are told to do it. Long gone are the days of independent thought by any politicians. We all know it, we all have seen it but, now, it’s time to actually let it guide us as we make our election decisions. Do not ask Terry Lake or Todd Stone what they will do for us. Don’t listen when Tom Friedman or Kathy Kendall talk about how they will fight for us. Don’t believe Peter Sharp or Ed Fehr when they tell you how they will make a difference. They will only do what their party leadership tells them to do. Party discipline has been ratcheted up so tightly in the past few years from what it was back when I was first working on election campaigns. Gone is any semblance of free speech or, heaven forbid, saying what they really think, if those thoughts might actually be — as they will tell
you in the next few weeks — their own honest, formed-by-their-own brain-cells ideas. Should you get the chance to talk to any of them, however, ask them this one question: Will you make the decision to sit as an independent if your party tells you to do something with which you disagree? If they dare answer that one, then ask them this: Will you actually think as a Kamloopsian first and not as a Liberal/NDP/Conservative Stepford politician? The Stepford Wives is about wives who are robotic yes-women who cater to every single whim, wish and demand of the husbands. Along comes one free spirit — she would be sitting as an independent if she was in the legislature — who challenges this existence-byrote reality. So, yes, honour your ancestors and get off your butt and vote on election day. Take your neighbour with you. It doesn’t take a lot of time and that X empowers you to complain for the next four years with a clear conscience. You did your part to help solve the mess that will be created, no matter who wins the election. But, don’t buy into the crap you will be hearing from the candidates. This is all about getting power and keeping power, so give some thought to which of the parties you think you can live with for the next four years as they do absolutely nothing but position themselves and spend money only where they think it will build their power base. firstname.lastname@example.org kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com
The HST is gone — finally. And, while Premier Christy Clark didn’t miss the opportunity to remind voters the harmonized sales tax had been beneficial to the film industry, manufacturers and other businesses that received input tax credits, the politicking rang a little hollow. The fact is the HST — good or bad — became more than a tax. Historically, it will be seen as a symbol of everything that went wrong with the B.C. Liberal government since being granted its last mandate in 2009. It’s fact that former premier Gordon Campbell went to the polls last election stating he was not considering adopting an HST. It’s also fact that, within weeks of being elected, the Liberals were rolling out plans for the HST. A significantly large segment of the electorate evidently didn’t believe the message — or the timeline. They concluded they had been deceived. And, while Liberal loyalists have muttered darkly ever since about “misinformation” spread by Bill Vander Zalm and the Stop HST movement, the latter clearly had their fingers closer to the pulse of public feeling. Even some of the staunchest Liberals were forced to admit they had done a horrible job of selling the HST, especially after opponents gathered sufficient votes to call for a referendum. There may have been many good reasons for an HST, but mishandling killed it — virtues, faults and all. The writing is on the wall for whichever party forms the next government, should it choose to read it. A mandate to govern is not a signal for hubris bordering on contempt for public opinion. It is not a blanket approval for anything a government decides to introduce. It is not an indication the democratic process is suspended, that questions won’t be asked, or that a docile public has gone to sleep for the next four years. Let’s hope future governments learn the lesson.

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Re: Editorial: Ajax’s about-face raises questions: “Honor is a rare commodity. “Apparently, it is in short supply at KGHM.” — posted by Kevin Cowan “This is the first article I’ve read about the proposed mine that actually states what is in (and out of) our control as citizens of this city. “It’s not what people want to hear, for sure, but it’s true. “I hope more people will read this and understand the process, then decide how they would like to move forward with their comments/actions.” — posted by Jennifer Jones “If the mine made a promise that it would heed the wishes of city council, then it has now said it is breaking that promise. “The truth will never change — putting a mine that close to our city will forever define us in a negative way.” — posted by Russ Cundari “Wow, this is insane. “So, what I’m hearing is that us, the residents of Kamloops, don’t matter? “It’s all about votes and approvals?” — posted by Rocko Martin

Time to have ebook elbow aside textbook cousin Editor: Are textbooks really more efficient? It’s no secret most university students aren’t crazy about textbooks. But, will switching required reading materials from textbook to an ebook format really change all that? Some textbooks can cost as much as $1,100 per year. For example, buying my textbook from the shelf cost me $112 I don’t have, whereas buying the ebook would have only cost me $32 dollars. So, as can be seen, it is physically and financially a burden on most students who, on an average day, carry between 15
Calling all war brides from city and beyond
and 20 pounds of textbooks. Some students have a hard time paying just their tuition and having to pay more for their textbooks can be stressful. Most students have a computer, tablet or smartphone that can support ebooks. (Not everyone has a computer, tablet or smartphone. Those without can still use textbooks if needed.) The cost of a hardcover textbook can be very expensive, whereas the cost of an ebook can be half the price — and sometimes less. Schools can save money by switching to ebooks while carrying a small number of textbooks.
Editor: We at the Canadian War Brides and Families Association are hosting our annual reunion in Victoria from April 12 to April 14. We have lots of fun events planned and encourage all war brides and family members to join us at the Fairmont Empress Hotel. There were 48,000 war brides and 22,000 children who crossed the Atlantic Ocean to join their Canadian husbands and fathers.
War-bride numbers have diminished, but we know there are thousands of war-bride children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren out there and we’d love to see you. For more information and reunion registration forms, call war bride Joan Reichardt at 250-352-7013 or email jreichardt@ netidea.com. Canadian War Brides and Families Association

Thank you for covering the election of our new pope Editor: A few days ago, I was in Northills Shopping Centre, waiting in line to be served at the bank. A fellow saw me and came over. He reached out his hand to greet me. “Congratulations on having a new pope,” he said. “He’ll do well!”
And they will stomp their feet, too Editor: Re: Christina Mader’s letter of April 2 (‘We pledge to no attend Ajaxsponsored events’): Mader’s actions to punish the arts community for accepting Ajax sponsorship seem very juvenile. Mader said she had four possible patrons of Western Canada Theatre’s Fiddler on the Roof, but they will not attend because WCT accepted Ajax sponsorship money. Because she is not getting her way, she is going to ignore something? It reminds me of high school. This passive-aggressive behaviour has some real collateral damage. Perhaps Mader should reconsider, What’s next? The four of them holding their breath until they get their way? Ray Jolicoeur Kamloops
Most textbooks are available as an ebook, so why aren’t we taking advantage of this? Costs can be reduced for students and schools. For most students, having to carry only one device that stores all their information and can be accessed anywhere, anytime is ideal. In this generation, everything is going digital, so why are schools stuck in the past? We will save money and we will be more likely to study with a lighter, ecofriendly load. Emily Pearson Kamloops

Because the case involves local police, prosecutors from the Surrey Crown counsel office have been brought in to handle it.

Round 2 is here The Seattle Thunderbirds and Kelowna Rockets played Game 7 of their first-round WHL playoff series in the Little Apple on Wednesday, April 3, after KTW’s press deadline. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for the result. If the Rockets won, it would mean the Kamloops Blazers meet their Interior rivals in the second round. Games 1 and 2 would be played in Kelowna, likely on Saturday, April 6, and Sunday, April 7, respectively.
Games 3 and 4 would likely be played at Interior Savings Centre on Tuesday, April 9, and Wednesday, April 10, respectively. A Seattle win would mean the Blazers open Round 2 against the Spokane Chiefs at ISC on Friday, April 5, with game time slated for 7 p.m. Kamloops and Kelowna played 10 times this season, with the Blazers posting a 6-4 record. The Blazers and Chiefs split their fourgame regular-season series. Spokane has been
idle since Saturday, March 30, when it disposed of the Tri-City Americans in Game 5 of their first-round series. Many fans who attend the first two home games of the Blazers’ second-round series will come away with swag. White rally towels, 5,000 of them, will be provided by Pratt’s Pharmacy for the first game. For the second home game, CSC Electric is sponsoring the giveaway of 3,000 white T-shirts. The Blazers are again asking fans to wear white to ISC.

DAILY INTEREST % Kelly Olynyk cracked two of college basketball’s most revered teams. Torrey Vail photo
Kamloops kid in rare air Kelly Olynyk of Kamloops was named this week to two prestigious teams. He cracked the AP All-America team, becoming only the third Gonzaga Bulldog in program history to accomplish the feat. Olynyk was also named to the John R. Wooden All-American team, the fifth player to earn the honour in school history. “Obviously, you
believe in yourself, but I didn’t expect to explode on the scene with this much attention,” Olynyk told the Associated Press. “My teammates and coaches believed in me and put me in a position to succeed.” Both teams are chosen by media covering college basketball. Olynyk, a South Kamloops secondary graduate, averaged 17.5 points, 7.2
rebounds and shot 65.2 per cent from the field this season, helping Gonzaga reach No. 1 for the first time in school history. The seven-footer joins Dan Dickau and Adam Morrison as the only Gonzaga players to make the AllAmerica team. Morrison, Dickau, Blake Stepp and Casey Calvary are the other Wooden AllAmericans.
Pack hosting soccer tryout The TRU WolfPack men’s soccer team is welcoming new players to its annual spring evaluation camp on Saturday, April 6. “If there are some very good players that are interested, then there will be challenges for spots,” WolfPack co-head coach John Antulov said. “But, we hope that everyone who is eligible will come back.” TRU lost only one player to graduation last season. The evaluation will run from 9 a.m. to
4:30 p.m. at Hillside Stadium. The morning session will consist of skills evaluation and smallsided games, with a full scrimmage slated for the afternoon. Those interested in trying out can email firstname.lastname@example.org. “We will be looking forward to seeing new players that are interested in playing for us in the fall and the talent level that is out there,” Antulov said. Sean Wallace is the Pack’s other co-head coach.

Kicking in to help Promo realize a dream By Dave Eagles STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Promo’s dream is to ski at the 2014 Paralympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. Like others living with disabilities, he faces challenges in reaching his goals. Pramod Thapa — who most refer to as Promo — lives with cerebral palsy. Recently, his Paralympic plans became more plausible when a local women’s
kickboxing facility — Kix 4 Chix Fitness Kamloops — made a $5,000 donation in support of his efforts to train for the Games. The funds were raised by selling the 2013 calendar — Beyond Boundaries. Kix 4 Chix owner Angela Veltri said it seemed a natural fit to make Promo this year’s beneficiary. “The goal of this year’s calendar was designed to highlight the lives of the women who come to the studio
and, like Pramod, continually push the limits of their bodies and minds to go far beyond what other people felt they ever could have achieved,” Veltri said. Promo competed at the ParaAlpine Canadian Championships at Sun Peaks Resort on the weekend. Participating in events like that, he hopes, will inspire others living with disabilities to challenge the perceived limitations of their bodies and
push toward reaching a dream they never thought possible.
Promotional calendar To help Promo’s
cause, go online to kix4chixkamloops.com and buy a calendar for $20. Women who train at the kickboxing club are featured.

RITA ANNE EVELYN
MICHAEL DEAN EPP
October 1,1975 - March 29, 2013
On March 29th, Good Friday morning, Michael passed into heaven peacefully in his sleep. God gave us this special person for a short time to love and enjoy. Michael joyously shared his love of music with everyone - singing and playing guitar. He had a mischievous laugh, loved to tell jokes and enjoyed a good pun. He sang in several choirs and enjoyed being involved in music worship at Kamloops Alliance Church. Michael worked at World of Music with his parents until the store was sold. Then he applied his talents to webpage design and CD production. In 2003 Michael co-wrote the song “Share the Vision.” Along with the ‘Summit Drive Band’ he performed it for the opening ceremonies of the BC Special Olympics 2003 and it was used as their theme song throughout that year. He wrote many songs and performed in concerts, family events and other productions. We will all miss him, however we know that he can now see, he can jump and run, and all his pain is healed. He is probably learning to drive car, but most of all he will be singing joyously in God’s choir. His last posting on facebook was “All Glory Belongs to my Savior. All glory belongs to Him!” He is survived by his parents, Wilfred and Jane Epp, one grandmother, many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. The celebration of his life will be held on Saturday, April 6 at 11:00 AM at Kamloops Alliance Church, 233 Fortune Drive. Everyone is welcome.
Menkis is associate professor of history and classical, near-Eastern and religious studies at the University of British Columbia.
Penny-wise at SPCA Animal lovers can put the big jar of pennies they’ve been collecting to good use this spring to help animals in need. The Kamloops SPCA is collecting donations (pre-rolled pennies preferred) until May 31. “Many people have a jar of coins sitting in a closet or drawer in their home,” said Lorie Chortyk, general manager of community relations for the BC SPCA. Since the Royal Canadian Mint stopped distributing pennies on Feb. 4, the BC SPCA is hoping the phased-out coin can make a big difference to dogs, cats, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters and more. “Every penny
counts,” Chortyk said. “We rely solely on donations to improve the welfare of animals.”
Anchoring a lecture Business News Network anchor Frances Horodelski is the next speaker in the President’s Lecture Series at Thompson Rivers University.

The ‘modellers’ are coming
Report Animal Cruelty
Kamloops is playing host to a conference slated to attract model-railway enthusiasts from far and wide By Tim Petruk
Brian Kelly is not a “modeller” — a fact he’s quick to point out. He is a collector. But, his store, Kelly’s Kaboose, is the go-to place for Kamloops modellers. (The term “modeller,” Kelly said, refers to builders of model railways.) This weekend, the Tournament Capital will become the go-to place for modellers, collectors and other railway enthusiasts, as host of the 2013 National Model Railway Pacific Northwest Region spring meet — also known as Kamloops Model Railway Days. “We have a big conference usually once a year, held somewhere in the area, and that attracts guys from all over the region,” Kelly told KTW. “This year, Kamloops is hosting it.”
~ MELISSA As one of the event’s organizers, Kelly said he expects about 100 delegates from across the region for the event, which begins on Friday, April 5, and runs through Saturday, April 6. Delegates will take part in clinics during the day on Friday, learning more about things like airbrushing, painting backgrounds and super-detailing. They are also slated to take a short trip aboard the Rocky Mountaineer and go on a tour of some homes of Kamloops-area modellers. Kelly said the event will be open to the public from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday. A number of model railways will be on display and visitors
will be able to take in talks and slideshow presentations. Kelly said commercial booths will also be up and running and visitors will be eligible for door prizes. “We’ve been working on this for months,” he said. “We had to arrange people to do the clinics, hotels, the Rocky Mountaineer, the local modellers in town here.” Kamloops Model Railway Days takes place at the Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way. Public admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children and seniors. A family pass (up to four) is $15. For more information, call Kelly at 250-377-8510.

Qui Xia was born in China and had a career as a performer and teacher in her home country before moving to Canada, where she is now a musician, composer, producer and teacher. Thibault was born in a working-class Montreal neighbourhood to a family with Acadian roots, and he brings a Western influence to Silk Road. Admission is $20, and goes directly to the musicians.

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.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPE ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, sit down with a calculator and get a better handle on your ﬁnances, especially what you’re bringing into the house each month and what is going out.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, expect others to turn to you for the next good idea or advice. It can be taxing being the reliable one, but it also an honor to be respected like this.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 It may be time to take a relationship to another level, Taurus. Look for inspiration from another couple you admire and enjoy the ride.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, when you want to get yourself heard, there is no point sugar-coating what you have to say. Most people appreciate honesty, even if it’s abrupt.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, with so much to do, you’re barely squeaking by this week. So avoid taking on any additional projects. Don’t dig yourself into a hole that you can’t get out of.
CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, some decisions you make may not be the right decisions. A wise person learns from his or her mistakes but also tries new things.
CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, ﬁnancial issues are certainly keeping you on your toes, although you are hoping for a respite. Go with the ﬂow for now and ﬁnd a better way to organize.

Home, home on the (free) range
OWN ON my hands and knees on the kitchen planking, as I pick up the contents of a spilled tray of fresh veggies, I think about my wedding day. The same thing happened then, too, although I didn’t know about it until later. There, in the church kitchen, as guests began to arrive and mingle in the day-lit event hall, the kitchen helpers were experiencing a minor disaster. In what was the first time in decades the Mennonite side of my family would meet
DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT with the Seventh-day Adventist side, and the first time most would be introduced to my soon-to-be husband’s also-Adventist multitude, there were any number of things that could go wrong. The mostly vegetar-
Bu r ge r s
1-398 ml. can black beans, drained 1-199 ml. corn nibblets, drained 1-127 ml. can chopped green chillies, with liquid 1 1/2 cups fresh bread crumbs 1/2 cup coarsely chopped “squeaky cheese” curds 1 large egg 1 tbsp. chilli powder 1 tbsp. cumin 2 tsp. onion powder 1/2 tsp. garlic powder Flaked kosher salt/fresh ground pepper 1/4 cup cornmeal Canola oil for frying In the bowl of a food processor, pulse beans until coarsely mashed. Transfer to a mixing bowl. Add corn, chillies, crumbs, cheese, egg and spices. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Season to taste. Form into about twelve 1/2 cup patties. Coat with cornmeal. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add a few patties at a time and cook 10-15 minutes, turning once, until crisp and cooked on both sides. Drain on paper towels.
ian Adventists might take umbrage over the meats presented, while the Mennonites might grow faint from so little sausage. Perhaps an argument concerning Sabbath doctrine would break out around the luncheon tables. Thankfully, however, both groups are traditional pacifists. And it wasn’t until my sister’s wedding a few months later, when Lutherans sat next to Wiccans, that things got out of sorts. Meanwhile, back on the day after the ceremony itself, I bustled m myself and my dress into t church following an the afternoon of being phot tographed. It was July 31, the m mercury was at 38 C and m crinolines had begun my t trap heat like a garden to cloche. But, unaware fresh vegetables were, at that m moment, being hosed off and re-trayed, ignorance was bliss. Now, fast forward 17 y years and my brother-inlaw was getting married in N Zealand last spring. New Vegans both, Todd and Donna were determ mined that their recept would include no tion foods that had ever interfered with an animal of any beak, hoof or fin. Unable to attend b because it was halfway around the planet, and we had lately made a covenant that yoked us t together with a mortgage u death (or repayuntil m ment) do we part, we
missed blessing our brother and new sister as they began their new life together. We also missed the live chicken that showed up to be featured in the wedding album. And we missed the good-hearted attempt of the bride and groom to convert at least a few meat-and-egg-eaters, and dairy-consumers, to veganism. All known accounts suggest the effort was for
naught, although some wedding guests were reported as saying, while they were still hungry after the lentil loaf, that some of the food was, in fact, OK. “Not bad!” came some very high praise. Then, as happens after weddings the world over, the guests waved off the new couple, the chicken dove for cover and the crowd scattered and drove off to find something more to eat.
Chef David Tombs takes the freshest local, organic & sustainable ingredients and crafts something truly remarkable.
Meanwhile, back home, we’ve decided to add a few more vegetarian (though not vegan) meals to our list of favourite things. We begin with black bean burgers, served on dinner buns, with mayo, avocado and red onion. The patties are easily the best case we’ve made for setting a tray of ground beef to roam free. Admittedly, the squeaky cheese came from an unknown cow.
But, the egg we used to bind the ingredients together was free-range from a backyard coop. In fact, because of Todd and Donna, I’m on the lookout for other free-range products when we shop. It doesn’t make up for not being there, but we have a feeling Todd and Donna will appreciate this more than the chef’s knife we sent. dandelionwine @shaw.ca

BANGKOK’S BEST BETS FOR YOUR BAHT By Lauren Kramer SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com
The city of Bangkok teems with relentless activity, from traffic jams that make the Lower Mainland’s rush-hour roads look like a breeze, to street vendors making dentures and repairing clothing. Feel like having a fried pomfret fish or a plate of pad thai? The street is the place to find it, for next to nothing in price. On every corner, Thai culture is palpable — you see it, inhale it and feel its frenetic activity all around you. It can get overwhelming, so here’s our list of top activities in the city. • Feed your feet to the fish: Chances are you’ve
eaten many a fish. In this experience, the tables, for once, are turned as the fish get a good meal at your expense. Fish spas consist of large tanks occupied by hundreds of hungry garra rufa and honey fish imported from Turkey. The foot treatment involves dipping your feet and legs into the tank and watching as the fish swarm and nibble on your dead skin cells, leaving your skin smoother and healthier in the process. It’s daunting at first, ticklish next and a very cool experience once the sensitivity wears off! Cost: $5 for 15 minutes’ immersion. • Surrender to a Thai massage: The many massage parlors that dot the city are visitors’ favourite

respite from the constant stimulation of the street. For less than $10, any number of blissful, hour-long treatments are possible, from back massages to scalp, foot and leg treatments. The Thai masseuses we encountered were experts at delivering therapeutic relaxation. Given the affordability of the treatments, it’s easy to justify succumbing to their hands on a daily basis for a series of treatments that rejuvenate, comfort and energize road-weary limbs. Average Cost: $8
• Shop Chatuchak: Chatuchak Market is Thailand’s largest weekend market, a 35-acre warren densely populated with some 8,000 vendors. The goods are diverse and include Thai handicrafts, silk table runners, fresh coconuts and live animals Every price is highly negotiable, so arrive with patience, comfortable walking shoes and a sense of fun. Come also with the awareness that, at the prices you’ll pay here, the goods you’ll return home with will not be the
highest of quality. We purchased wooden spoons, kids’ watches, pashminas, wallets and flip flops. With a few exceptions, most of the items broke after their first few uses. Still, the fun is in the shopping! The heat in Bangkok is searing, so break frequently, drink lots of water, indulge in the freshly sliced fruit and juices and haggle with a sweet smile.

Will the European Union stick together?
N THE beginning, the effort to foment the European Union’s unity and prosperity looked so promising. Building Europe into a powerful global empire-like entity has been a dream of many political, military and religious leaders. When the Roman Empire disintegrated toward the end of fifth century, it ended an era of four consecutive empires that dominated much of the world — namely Babylon, MedoPersia, Greece and Rome. The vacuum of divided Europe was filled by a religio-political system that tried uniting large segments of mankind under the authority of “the one and only true religion.” Looking back, we know this human effort, however well-meaning at
KAREL SAMEK You Gotta Have FAITH first, ushered in an era of intolerance and oppression called the Dark Ages. Historians’ modest estimate of 100 million lost lives (some go as high as 200 million) were the cost of military conflicts, religious holy (and unholy) wars and persecutions. Behind it lay an obsession and conviction that mankind needed central rule in political and religious matters to rule its conscience and secure
its submission. Europe’s history shows major key individuals who attempted to unite Europe under one central rule and, from Europe, control world affairs. To mention few: Charlemagne tried in the eighth century; Charles V in the 16th; Napoleon in the 18th and 19th; Kaiser Wilhelm, Hitler and the Soviets in the 20th. Some combined it with corrupted religion, others with atheism or other philosophies. The EU started as a revival of the same old dream. Will it succeed? In the 1940s, after Hitler’s great victories in Europe and the defeat of the French at Dunkirk, when England feared for its survival, a British Christian pastor kept confidently writing that, based on biblical proph-
ecy, Hitler’s cause could not prevail. He referred to Daniel 2 as the source of his confidence. A German pastor who was drafted into Hitler’s army was asked by a high military officer for his opinion of Hitler’s success in the war with the USSR. After being promised that whatever he said would not endanger his life, he gave the officer a lesson on Daniel 2. He was asked to repeat the same lesson to another group of highranking military officers. Some historians claim Napoleon, Kaiser Wilhelm and Hitler were told of this Bible prophecy. Hitler responded: “Let God keep to His own business and I will keep to mine.” Napoleon, after his defeat, was recorded as
saying, “I could not win against God, He is stronger than I.” Daniel 2 depicts the rise and fall of four great world empires, starting with that of Babylon. Historians have no problem tracing them down through MedoPersia, Greece and Rome. Yet, illogically, after them no such strong fifth world empire was to appear in Europe. Rome had disintegrated from its inner corruptions, moral vices and attacks from Germanic tribes. It divided into 10 original segments, just like the 10 toes of the Daniel’s 2 statue indicate. By the word of Prophet Daniel and in spite of their determined attempts “they will be [stay] divided, shall be partly strong and partly weak and shall not cleave [adhere] one to another.” (Daniel 2:41-43).
Actually, they further fragmented. Today, we hear much about the new world order. Presidents, politicians, bankers and religious leaders push hard to accomplish it using religious, military, political, economic and industrial ties. Will it succeed? According to Bible prophecy, only for a short time. It will then fall apart. Daniel 2 predicts a “big rock,” cut without human hands, smashing this final human attempt to dominate world affairs. This rock is none other than Jesus Christ in his Second Coming. Most people don’t listen to God’s word. Instead, they look to other spiritual rocks — astrology, silly predictions, occultism, ambitious politicians or confused theologians
and self-serving religious leaders promising peace and prosperity. In Daniel 2:45, Prophet Daniel interprets King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream with these words: “The dream is certain and its interpretation is sure.” Will the EU, the new world order or a oneworld government succeed? Maybe for a very short time. God in His love for the human family told us some 2,500 years in advance what will and won’t happen. Isn’t it time start looking to Him for answers and build our confidence on His word, rather than on stars, soothsayers and the promises and prognosis of men? Karel Samek is pastor of Merritt, Ashcroft and Lillooet Seventh-day Adventist churches.
