Manslaughter charge in connection to St. Paul house fire By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

David Peter Gordon has been charged with manslaughter in the death of Cheryl William. The charge is in addition to arson charges related to a fire at a house at 927 St. Paul St. last month. Gordon, 32, appeared by videoconference in provincial court on Monday, May 6, to speak to the charges, but his lawyer, Chris Thompson, was not able to be there and the matter was adjourned to Thursday, May 9. William, 44, a cook at the Sk’elep School of Excellence, was found unconscious in the rear suite of the house just after 2 a.m. on April 25, when firefighters arrived to douse the fire. William was taken to Royal Inland Hospital in serious condition and was removed from life support on Monday, April 29. School principal Garry Gottfriedson said William’s smile was what most everyone spoke of when they met her. “She was an awesome woman, hard-working,” he said. “In the last five years she missed one day of work. She was very dedicated and will be missed for sure.” Police have said Gordon was a resident of the building, which had been divided into three suites. Two others in the house at the time of the blaze escaped unharmed. Gordon was arrested shortly after the fire was reported. Kamloops RCMP have said William and Gordon were not associated, although it is likely they had met in the past. Direct damage was limited to the suite although some of the roof was also scorched. The two other units had smoke and water damage.

GUILTY PLEA IN CELL SCANDAL The civilian jail guard charged with breach of public trust in connection with the Kamloops RCMP jail-cell sex scandal has pleaded guilty. David Tompkins entered his plea on Monday, May 6. Turn to page A7 for the story.

Councillors make less than their peers By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

As Kamloops councillors decide whether to re-open the debate on their pay for the first time in more than a decade, a quick survey by KTW shows the city’s elected officials are making less than their counterparts in similar-sized communities. Looking only at base pay rates for 2013 — which do not include expense accounts or salaries collected for sitting on boards such as the Thompson-Nicola Regional District — Kamloops’ council pay of just under $25,000 is at least $6,000 lower than what other councillors in municipalities of comparable size are making. In Prince George, councillors will make about $31,500 this year, after agreeing to a $7,000 raise in 2011. The pay hike came after a four-person

committee found city councillors were making less than the provincial average in relation to the mayor’s salary. According to a report prepared for council at the time, the average salary for a councillor outside of the Lower Mainland was $30,000. In Nanimo, councillors make $32,400. In Chiliwack, it’s just under $31,800. In Kelowna, where councillors SALARY SUFFICIENT A8 agreed in 2011 not to take a cost-of-living increase until 2014, the annual salary is $31,310. Looking at communities of a similar size one province over, the council wage gap remains. In Lethbridge (population 89,000), councillors make $32,200. In Red Deer (population 90,000), they make $53,160. Mayor Peter Milobar’s salary of $74,400 is

Remember! no vote, no voice!

also lower than that of his mayoral colleagues. Prince George leads the pack, with a mayoral salary of more than $94,500, while mayors in Kelowna and Chiliwack make more than $89,000. Nanimo’s mayor makes $87,500. Kamloops Coun. Nancy Bepple is set to bring forward a motion today (May 7), asking staff to prepare a report comparing Kamloops’ council salaries to others around the province, with an eye to increasing the city’s base wage for elected officials. In an interview with KTW last week, Bepple said the demands of sitting on council have increased and compensation should, as well. Unlike many B.C. communities, which revisit council and mayoral wages every three years or so, Kamloops councillors receive a yearly increase based on the Vancouver consumer-price index.

BRIAN ALEXANDER, INDEPENDENT, KAMLOOPS-SOUTH THOMPSON JOHN FORD, INDEPENDENT, KAMLOOPS-NORTH THOMPSON

Independent political streaks by Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

BRIAN ALEXANDER

Dave Eagles/KTW

It’s Friday afternoon and Brian Alexander’s campaign has hit a momentary skid. With 11 days left before general voting day, the Kamloops-South Thompson independent candidate’s van has started making strange noises, derailing plans for an afternoon of sign planting and, he quips, “kissing hands and shaking babies.� It’s Alexander’s third such campaign since 2008 — when the owner of Champion Chimney Services and the city’s best-known Freeman took his first crack at running for mayor. So far, that run for office (where he received more than five per cent of the vote) remains his most successful, but Alexander thinks this could be his time. “The more people see how I act and take me seriously, they understand that I’m not some wacko,� he said. “The government has labelled Freemen as terrorists.

“Now that’s about the same as calling every Frenchman FLQ because they’re French or every German guy Nazi.� As a Freeman, Alexander has in the past told Kamloops courts — where he has ended up periodically, mainly because of driving infractions — that Canada’s Criminal Code doesn’t apply to him. “The government law applies to public servants, not other people,� he tells KTW, again, on Friday. “Freeman is just a label. It means I’m free. “But, unfortunately, you’re not free and you’re not free and anybody else is not free because you’re stipulated to laws that say you can’t even have a beer because, if I smell beer on your breath, I’m going to convict you on the side of the road.� In running for MLA, Alexander wants to change the way the provincial government is held to account. How? “By producing legislation.� What legislation? “Legislation to make them accountable.� Alexander would also like to see resource industries in B.C. nationalized and more attention

paid to families struggling to get by.

JOHN FORD John Ford remains a mystery. The only candidate for X Party B.C. is a no-show at debates and absent from the thickets of roadside signs. On Twitter, Kamloops’ media personalities debate whether he is, in fact, real. While a voicemail from Ford to the KTW newsroom, left after-hours on the weekend, seems to confirm there is a candidate out there somewhere, follow-up calls and texts remained unanswered as of yesterday’s (May 6) press deadline. What little is known of Ford comes from a sparsely written website at xparty.ca. A short party platform includes “GMO farming ban� and ending the carbon tax and Pacific Carbon Trust as priorities. Ford’s biography on the site states he has been a resident of Kamloops for four years, has a background in “financial markets� and “has a diverse set of skills to serve the citizens of Kamloops-North Thompson.�

KTW Q&A: The lighter side of Brian Alexander and pony-chuckwagon racing KTW: What’s your favourite movie? ALEXANDER: “Lately, it’s Mr. Smith Goes to Washington. It’s a bit of an inspiration.�

KTW: What’s one interesting fact about you the average voter doesn’t know? ALEXANDER: “I grew up on a farm

and we used to pony chuckwagon race when I was a child.� KTW: What are your hobbies? ALEXANDER: “Outdoor things.

“Fishing, hiking. I work on cars, that kind of thing. I like my toys, dirt bikes, RC toys, things like that.�

Rotarians want to keep feeding meal program By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Six dinners, more than 750 meals served, a dedication to leave the kitchen cleaner than they found it — and the Rotary clubs in the city want to keep on cooking. Yes, it’s plural now as other Rotarians want to join the Kamloops Rotary Club in its pilot project to provide community dinners at NorKam secondary every two weeks during the school year. The project began on Feb. 13, said club president Christopher Sequin, with

Target opens today in Sahali Mall As voters go to the polls, Target will open its doors in Kamloops. The U.S. retailer will open the Kamloops store and 21 other Western Canada locations on Tuesday, May 7. Target has already opened 24 stores in Ontario and plans to have 124 stores open across Canada by the end of the year. Stores will be open Mondays to Saturdays from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 8 a.m. to 9 p.m. The Kamloops store will include a pharmacy and a Starbucks outlet. Minneapolis-based Target Corporation has 1,808 stores — 1,784 in the United States and 24 in Canada, the latter being former Zellers stores for which Target purchased the leases from the Hudson’s Bay Company, parent corporation of Zellers.

RCMP, IHA team up on pedestrian safety Kamloops RCMP and the Interior Health Authority’s trauma-response team are forming a committee to look at pedestrian safety in the Tournament Capital. The move comes in the wake of a number of pedestrians being hit by vehicles, often while the pedestrians were in crosswalks. RCMP Insp. Jenny Latham said the committee will likely look at educational solutions to deal with the issue, though it’s not only school children who need to be reminded to be aware while driving on or crossing the road. “The offenders in this are all not youth,” she said. “It’s all over the map.”

26 in attendance. Two weeks later, the participation had grown to 120, including 90 children, Seguin said. He attended the recent meeting of the Kamloops-Thompson board of education to update trustees and ask that the program be continued monthly through the summer and continue bi-weekly when school returns in September. Trustees referred the report and recommendation to administration for review, but expressed delight at the program’s success. Seguin said it grew “through pure

word of mouth” and included time for people to relax and talk, with activities for children. “So, it didn’t feel like a soup kitchen. The kids just have a blast,” he said, noting he has yet to win the regular Simon Says competition held after dinner. Seguin told trustees the average cost per meal was about $2. “That included some great meals, everything from chili to ham,” he said. Any supplies used at the school kitchen have been replaced by the club. The program is operated in conjunction with the Kamloops Food Bank’s FoodShare program.

Ajax: Most queries remain unanswered City submitted list in 2011 By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It took nearly two years, but Kamloops city council is finally getting answers to a few of the 11 questions it posed to the proponents of the Ajax mine on July 11, 2011. KGHM Ajax has released a copy of a letter it sent to council, which includes information on the diversion of Peterson Creek, blasting at the site, traffic impacts and the mine’s impact on water flows in the Thompson rivers. But, about 75 per cent of the questions — which also concern dust, property values, health impacts and light pollution — are still unanswered, and will stay that way until the company submits its environmental-assessment (EA) review in September. “It is still early in the process,” KGHM’s vicepresident of environment Dan Ferriter told media at a press conference on Friday, May 3. “The thing we have to do in this process is honour the process.” Ferriter said much of the information council has asked for still isn’t available and won’t be until many of the highest-level studies required for the mine’s environmental assessment are complete. While most of the baseline studies for Ajax are complete, the air and water models that draw from that data are still in the works. Those models, too, feed into human health and ecological risk assessment that will answer questions about the effect of dust and emissions on the city, Ferriter said. “And, really, that’s the final piece of the EA.” Ferriter hopes the response, even incomplete, will help satisfy some community and council concerns. “What we’re trying to do is provide some satisfaction. We’re trying to

be transparent,” he said. “The norm would be that you would submit an EA and there would be a public-comment period and then we would sit down and hash it out together. “But, we know the community would like to get as much information as they can prior to that, so that’s what we’re trying to do by answering this letter.” Of the concerns raised by council, Ajax has said three are likely negligible. In its 18-page response, the company said a traffic study it has conducted and will submit to the city shows employee traffic to the mine will have little impact on city infrastructure, though the mine is interested in working with the city on “aspects of improvement to Lac Le June Road.” The company said its transport trucks will use the road briefly, for about 100 metres, before moving to either Inks Lake Road or the Coquihalla Highway. Ferriter said blasting impacts are expected to be minimal. The mine plans to run one blast per day, during daylight hours, and could adjust the size of the blast if slope-stability concerns arose. “What you have to realize with the blasting is we, too, have to build facilities that can withstand the blasts in that area,” he said. “Blasting is something we can definitely control. We can control the size of the blast.” The company also released calculations which it said show the volume of water the mine plans to draw from the Thompson rivers would have minimal impact on fish and wildlife. At the shallowest and widest points of the river, Ajax said in the letter, the mine’s draw would reduce the “wetted width” of the river by nine to 29 centimetres and maximum depth by two to five millimetres.

LOCAL NEWS Keeping impaired drivers off the road is a goal of all police officers. Four Kamloops Mounties did enough to be named to Alexa’s Team, created by the BCAA Road Safety Foundation, ICBC and the family of Alexa Middelaer, a four-year-old who was killed by a drunk driver on May 17, 2008. Black Press file photo

Alexa’s Team continues to crack down By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The messages are well known. Don’t drink and drive. Stay alive. Make the right choice. Friends don’t let friends drive drunk. Statistics show the campaigns against drinking alcohol and then putting the key into the ignition are working. However, through the first three months of 2013, Const. Guillaume Pelletier has already made seven drunkdriving arrests in Kamloops. That likely means he will reach an even dozen again this year and likely will once again be recognized by BCAA in its Alexa’s Team program. Pelletier is one of four officers in Kamloops — and 228 throughout the province — who received certificates from the program this year. Joining him were Cpl. Mike O’Flynn and constables Kathy Prentice and Martin Giguere. It’s Pelletier’s third consecutive year to be recognized in the program. To be nominated, an officer must have removed at least 12 impaired drivers from the roads in the previous calendar year through a formal Criminal-Code charge or a driving prohibition. Statistics show the number of impaired-

driving-related fatalities in the province have dropped to 73 in 2011 from 126 in 2010. Early data for 2012 indicates an historic low of 59 deaths. Data also shows the number of impaired drivers found on B.C. roads has been decreasing, although the 228 officers honoured this year account for 1,218 criminal charges laid, 300 90-day roadside prohibitions, 2,256 24-hour prohibitions (which do not carry with them any criminal record), 2,318 immediate roadside prohibitions (IRP) for failing a roadside test, 802 IRPs for refusing the roadside test and 1,989 roadside warnings. Pelletier has heard all the excuses in his brief policing career (four years in Burns Lake and in Kamloops since last summer). “Some don’t really even realize they are impaired,” he said. “Others will tell me they have just had two beers. But, it’s not a game. It’s not a challenge to see how much you can drink.” During his training, Pelletier had to drink enough mixed alcoholic drinks to put most people under the table — but he only blew the equivalent of .04, within the legal limit to drive. He said there are variables people must consider if they are drinking alcohol because everyone has a different tolerance level. For those who might be wondering, as they shuffle out of the local

bar, Pelletier said if they see an officer nearby not involved in something, they can ask them for a breathalyzer, to gauge if they really should head to their car in the parking lot or hail a cab. The lack of that option is one of the reasons Pelletier pulled over several drunk drivers during his stay in Burns Lake. “Sometimes the same person two or three times in a couple of months,” he said, noting everywhere in Burns Lake is within

walking distance. Alexa’s Team was created by the BCAA Road Safety Foundation, ICBC and the family of Alexa Middelaer, a four-yearold who was killed by a drunk driver on May 17, 2008. The driver, Carol Bener, was found guilty of impaired and dangerous driving charges in 2010 and sentenced to a two-and-a-half-year jail term. Her appeal was dismissed by the B.C. Court of Appeal in March.

Critical Illness Insurance... Is it Worth It? A critical illness can happen to anyone and everyone knows someone who has been diagnosed with a critical illness – cancer, heart attack or stroke. We all think that this won’t happen to us! The Canadian Cancer Society will tell you that one in four Canadians are expected to die from cancer and that cancer is the leading cause of premature death in this country. 3,075 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer every week, there are 70,000 heart attacks and between 40,000 to 50,000 strokes annually. These statistics are frightening, as are the costs related to these critical illnesses. In recent years, medical advances have led to increased life expectancy and the ability to recover from various illnesses. Thanks to these advances, you’re much more likely to suffer a critical illness and live, then you are to die suddenly – which means financial hardship is likely what will be left behind. So, critical illness insurance – is it worth it? If you find yourself diagnosed with any of the 25 critical illnesses covered, critical illness insurance gives you the ability to focus on your recovery by eliminating the financial stress that often accompanies many of these illnesses. Your critical illness insurance can be used to pay your mortgage; look after your family or pay for those medical costs incurred that may not be covered by the government or by your employment health benefits. Yes, it is definitely worth it!

City staffer pleads guilty in jail-cell sex scandal Tompkins has sentencing hearing set for next month; Mounties to stand trial in January By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The civilian jail guard charged with breach of public trust has pleaded guilty. David Tompkins entered his plea on Monday, May 6, during a hearing to set a date for a trial into charges connected to a 2010 jail-cell sex scandal in Kamloops.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on June 11. Tompkins and two RCMP officers, Corp. Rick Brown and Const. Stephen Zaharia, were charged after a probe by the RCMP into an incident on Aug. 18, 2010, in which the men are accused of watching via video cameras in the cellblock area two female prisons in a cell engage in

a sex act. A trial date for the two officers is expected in January. Four Kamloops Mounties and five city employees were originally implicated. Initial reports indicated one of the women was HIVpositive — a claim that hasn’t been confirmed by police. According to the

Criminal Code of Canada, breach of trust by a public officer occurs when an official, “in connection with the duties of his office, commits fraud or a breach of trust.” It is punishable by a maximum of five years in jail. Because the case involves local police, prosecutors from the Surrey Crown counsel office were brought

Never mind the salaries — how about term limits?

I

F WINNING A SEAT IN Parliament is akin to winning the jackpot (and it is), and if serving at least two terms is like winning the lottery (it is, as the shamefully gluttonous pension plan proves), what can be made of those who seek office at the civic level? Unlike their counterparts at senior levels of government, being a politician at the municipal level will not set up lifelong financial security along with the post-political perks of appointments to various private boards or gifts of posts across the ocean (see Day, Stockwell and Campbell, Gordon). It is accepted as fact that those who run for office at the local level do so because they have a burning desire to protect in their city what they consider worth protecting and because they feel they can help make the city even better than it already is. If that is the reason ordinary citizens become city councillors, it is indeed a laudable explanation. For this service, city councillors in smaller centres have historically received a token amount of pay. It has always been a part-time job with part-time pay, particularly in smaller cities and towns like Kamloops. So, when the issue of councillor pay becomes the topic of conversation, as it did last week with Coun. Nancy Bepple’s desire to review their compensation, it can create quite the controversy. Kamloops decided last decade to stop engaging in periodic reviews that resulted in eyebrow-raising raises every so often. Instead, councillor pay is adjusted

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS with cost-of-living increases. It was and is a fair way of addressing salaries. Today, the eight city councillors in Kamloops make $25,000 each — onethird of which is tax-free and all of which is on top of whatever it is they earn in their private lives. In addition, five councillors — including Bepple — make another $12,000 (one-third tax free) for being a Thompson-Nicola Regional District director. Every time this issue arises, those calling for a review always add a disclaimer that “it’s not about the money.” Yet, any time one utters “it’s not about the money,” they are making it about nothing but the money. City council may choose to once again ask staff to survey similar-sized communities (Chilliwack, Prince George, Nanaimo) and some regional neighbours (Kelowna, Vernon) to determine how much councillors in those cities earn. We here at KTW have done that. Anyone can. It takes but a few phone calls. What is found every time is that

there will always be cities that pay their councillors more, while some cities will pay their councillors less. The problem with perpetually doing the comparison game is we invariably end up in a race to the top, with the taxpayer, already stretched to the absolute maximum, paying more. If, by chance, we discovered Kamloops councillors were paid more than councillors in all of the above cities, could we then expect Bepple and company to call for a pay reduction? Of course not. That $25,000 councillors earn for part-time work is not an insignificant sum. According to Statistics Canada, the average salary in the nation as of December was $47,200. City councillors in Kamloops, therefore, are making more than half of the average annual salary in Canada — and, for most of them, it is money on top of their regular jobs. (Five councillors make $37,000 with their TNRD duties factored in.) If, as Bepple claims, she is spending up to 30 hours a week on city business and has lost thousands of dollars in her regular gig at Thompson Rivers University, the answer is not shovelling more taxpayer dollars at the position. The answer is to step aside and allow someone else to fill the position. On that note, how about term limits at city hall? Being a city councillor should not serve as a career. Serve two terms and leave. You have contributed. Now allow others to enter city hall and work with staff on new ideas.

Televised political debates in B.C. serve a few purposes. Viewers can see how party leaders engage in spirited discussion, how sincere they seem, how well they know the issues and how party policy relates to those issues. But, anyone can click on a political party website to find policy statements and reams of information can be found on news sites that offer a sense of where individuals stand on certain issues. In essence, then, the TV debate is primarily a chance for leaders to stand before the cameras, without their respective entourages, and prove they deserve to lead the province. Or, in the case of the Greens and Conservatives, that their party deserves your vote. The sad fact is, if one turned off the picture and listened only to the sound portion of last week’s highly scripted, made-for-TV debate, it could have been mistaken for question period in the B.C. legislature. Frontrunners Christy Clark of the Liberals and Adrian Dix of the NDP frequently spoke over each other’s answers and, on several occasions, avoided responding directly to public questions, if at all, choosing instead to repeat party slogans. While both provided moments of calm clarity in the debate, the leaders with no chance of forming government — Jane Sterk of the Green Party and John Cummins of the Conservatives — were merely spectators to the main verbal jousting between the others. Largely absent from debate around the overarching themes of “growing B.C.’s economy” (Clark) and “telling people how we’re going to pay for programs” (Dix) was talk of B.C.’s longtime top voter priorities — health care and education. They may not be the topics du jour for the leaders or their parties, but funding those areas remains a huge challenge and will affect all taxpayers. The bickering-filled program came off more as cheesy reality TV than meaningful discussion about our province’s future. While the debate likely failed to inspire fence-sitters to get out and vote on Tuesday, May 14, there is, thankfully, still time before election day to learn where candidates and their parties stand.

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Editorial: $25,000 is fair pay for sitting on city council: “Exactly. You nailed it.” — posted by Chris Ortner

Re: Story: Bepple wants councillor pay review: “Most of the city’s councillors could be replaced with a ‘yes’ sign. Seems the only time they ever say no is when a citizen asks for something. “Boo-hoo, Bepple is losing pension. “Cry me a river. It’s your fault this city’s taxes are so outrageous.” — posted by Kim Young

Re: Letter: On Ajax, let’s relax and let experts do their jobs: “Open-pit copper/ gold mines are open-pit copper/gold mines and it is delusional to think there would be a substantial difference. “The problem with Ajax is it would be difficult to find a worse location. Strong prevailing winds will blow mine dust containing heavy metals associated with copper mineralization into a valley containing 90,000 people, a valley that has temperature inversions that would trap the dust. “Open-pit mines have a proper place. The Ajax location is not a proper place.” — posted by Hugh Jordan

City needs to fix island fiasco Boogie the Bridge Editor: Re: Mark O’Brien’s letter of April 30 (‘Kamloops fails with parking fiasco at McArthur’), in which he details being one of many to receive a parking ticket during a busy day on the island. An old adage comes to mind: “A satisfied customer tells one other person; an unsatisfied one will tell numerous.” I just hope the city pays attention to this matter. If there isn’t enough marked parking, the city should then open up

curb parking. Otherwise, the city should not rent the McArthur Island Sport and Event Centre to events that will attract immense crowds. I’m sure O’Brien is not the only disgruntled out-of-towners. The other negative letter came a couple months ago from a person who had to drive off-site to have a meal. Tsk, tsk to our parks, recreation and cultural services department. Elmer King Kamloops

More space to park needed Editor: I was at McArthur Island on the weekend of April 27/28 to attend my granddaughter’s soccer tournament. I noticed that all the ball diamonds and soccer fields were in use, while the gun show took place in the sports centre. When leaving a soccer game, I saw a female bylaws officer ticketing vehicles. If city staff looked at how many tickets that were issued during that weekend, they would know how many parking spaces they were short for an overbooked McArthur Island. I agree with letter writers who say the city should do something about opening up more parking during busy times. I don’t blame residents and visitors who are upset at being ticketed. Pat Munro Kamloops Editor: In reference to recent articles about cats: Cats, like as all animals, will follow nature. Cats will kill birds, but also rodents. I would much rather have a cat that kills rodents, especially one that keeps my house rid of them. I don’t like to see the birds killed, but I have my problems with birds. They eat my grapes and seeds out of my garden, Mother Nature is Mother Nature — let her take her course. Live and let live. Colleen Causton, Kamloops

must move — or die Editor: On Sunday, April 28, I hopped in my car at 9:30 a.m., leaving my home on Shoreline Place, next to the Henry Grube Education Centre. I was in a bit of a hurry because I had a volunteer work crew waiting for me at the Kamloops Sailing Association site on Nicola Lake in Quilchena. The 2,500 people in the Boogie the Bridge event were in full cry as they crossed Overlanders Bridge. When I arrived at Baker Street and Schubert Drive, hoping to get onto the bridge, my usual route up Fort Avenue was blocked. We were stopped by two of Kamloops’ finest auxiliary RCMP officers at Baker and Schubert. I was about five cars back from the stop point. Being curious as to for how long we were going to be stuck, I walked up to the officers. Being a bit of smart-ass, I walked up to them and asked whether I should pay for parking. Officer No. 1, a beer-barrel shaped male, told me to get back in my car or I would be going to jail. We exchanged pleasantries and he then repeated his warning, adding that the Boogie runners were more important than me. He then waved toward the portable jail — his patrol van — blinking on Schubert. I headed back to the car and officer No. 2, an slight female, began asking me why I did not know about the Boogie date as it had been advertised all week. The line of traffic eventually started moving and I left my car in creep gear. My vehicle bumped her leg, which she had put in front of my left front bumper. This got me another lecture, though no jail threats, as we were both in full-shout mode. Officer beer-barrel did not join in. If the residents of a North Shore Gulag must go to jail to escape their homes for the Boogie to work, then the Boogie must die or move elsewhere. As for whomever recruited and trained the two members of the community disguised as auxiliary RCMP officers, I suggest they get a new playbook. Al Knight Kamloops

Cats will simply be cats ‘Underpaid’ Bepple can always walk away from council Editor: Re: (‘Bepple wants councillor pay review,’ May 2): Kamloops Coun. Nancy Bepple claims the job costs her between $20,000 and $30,000 per year. I think Bepple should have sat down with her partner and both should have decided if it was in her best interest to run for office. There are members of families out

there making $12 an hour, which works out to $96 a day or $480 a week or $23,040 a year — before taxes. My condolences to Bepple if she is underpaid. But, if it’s too much for her to handle, she can always resign and let someone else take her place on council. Greg Fenrick Kamloops

If Coun. Nancy Bepple finds council duty too time-consuming and expensive, KTW reader Greg Fenrick has some advice for the two-term civic politician — resign and let someone else have her seat. KTW file photo

Different system, different outcome? Would a different system of voting make a difference to the result of B.C.’s election on May 14? Votes BC, a research project based out of UBC and Université Laval, is allowing people to find out by looking at how individuals vote under different systems. B.C. voters can participate in the study by voting online (votesbc.org) using three different voting systems: Firstpast-the-post, proportional representation and singletransferable vote. Voting is done anonymously and reflects the current B.C. election, with all candidates in each riding on the ballot. “Our goal is to get as many B.C. voters to cast their vote in the way many others already do around the world,” said Allan Craigie, member of the Votes BC team and a researcher at UBC. “We’ve chosen sys-

countries and in two other provincial elections — Quebec and Ontario. The Votes BC website uses the same ridings and the same official list of candidates that voters will see when they enter the booth on May 14. “B.C. failed to adopt the single-transferable vote on two different occasions,”

Craigie said. “However, we never actually got the chance to try it out, so wouldn’t it be interesting to see what effect it would have in 2013, even if there are no electoral consequences? “It will give voters an understanding of how all these systems would work.”

Elizabeth Fry to hold workshop on family law The impact new legislation will have on family law will be discussed on Friday, May 10, at a day-long workshop at the Plaza Heritage Hotel, 405 Victoria St. The event, sponsored by the Kamloops and District Elizabeth Fry Society, runs from 8:15 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A new act was introduced in March and includes changes in the language used, protection orders, child support and the impact of the child’s best interest in disputes.

TRU president wondering why his school omitted from research funds By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The province is giving $900,000 to students at universities involved in research — and the head of Thompson Rivers University wants to know why his institution was not included. TRU president Alan Shaver said he was curious and concerned when he learned of an April 15 announcement noting the money that is earmarked for scholarships. Six belong to the Research Universities Council of British Columbia (RUCBC), but only Simon Fraser University, the University of British Columbia, the

University of Northern British Columbia and the University of Victoria were earmarked for the program. TRU and Royal Rhodes University were not included. Shaver said he’s been told none of the universities were consulted or even knew they had been included in the program. He noted legislation creating Thompson Rivers University from what was then the University College of the Cariboo mandated that it was to provide master’s degrees and do research, something it does. Two years ago, TRU was accepted for membership in the RUCBC, a reflection of its work in research, he said. “We are just as serious about research as we are about education,” Shaver said, noting there are mas-

ter’s-degree students studying in forestry, agrifoods, mining and other forms of technology. “These certainly affect us locally, but they are global issues as well.” At the time of the announcement, a press release quoted Ralph Sultan, then minister of advanced education, innovation and technology as saying the scholarships “will support some of our best and brightest as they advance their graduate studies and apply their knowledge and skills to the benefit of their chosen research areas.” A ministry spokesman said the decision was made based on several criteria, including the proportion of graduate students at the institutions.

MENTAL HEALTH WEEK

Moore is Feeling Good By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

A former resident is returning to Kamloops after a four-year singing hiatus to celebrate and motivate in honour of Mental Health Week. Tina Moore said she will be “joyfully” raising awareness through her Feeling Good event, which will take place on Thursday, May 9, at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, 1136 Sixth Ave. Moore will be walking the audience through her own struggles with depression, anxiety, panic attacks and performance anxiety through a number of songs, music and discussion. “I wanted to get across the message that a mental illness does not need to define you,” Moore said. She decided to get involved in mental-health issues after she had overcome many of her own struggles and recognized the stigma society holds toward mental health. Moore recently spoke to a physician regarding where society was with mental health. “He flat out said we are liv-

TINA MOORE: Will be ‘joyfully’ raising awareness on May 9.

ing in the Dark Ages and that it is not getting better,” Moore said. “It is getting worse. This is an issue that needs to be addressed.” Moore said the stigma behind mental health is a huge part of the issue, noting she felt embarrassed that she needed pills to make her happy. She felt as though she had failed in some way, that she was weak. “This is a big problem,” Moore said, explaining that taking medication for mental-health issues should not be viewed any differently than taking medication for arthritis. While she does not recommend children take in her pre-

sentation — due to the nature of some of her topics — Moore said it will be beneficial to anyone, even if only to hear some good music. Moore said the presentation also serves as a way for those who may not understand mental illness to learn what people go through. The Women of Worth nominee has been an entertainer for many years, performing two shows a night, three days a week on top of shows with her side bands, until she took a four-year break from the music business. Moore will be making a special comeback appearance in her old hometown for the Feeling Good presentation, however; performing a wide range of music and song, from pop to jazz and everything in between. The music, Moore said, will draw inspiration from different points in her life, mentally and musically. Tickets can be purchased in advance online for $12 at http://www.eventbrite.ca/ event/6353275819?ref=ebtn or at the door for $15. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the performance beginning at 7:30 p.m.

Police Week event coming to Aberdeen Mall Aberdeen Mall will be a mall of justice on Saturday, May 11, as it hosts a major Police Week event. From 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., there will be a variety of booths, displays and interactive events targeting children and families. Displays will include: • A police motorcycle and RCMP ATV (Gator).

• A police car and CN Police. • Department of Fisheries and Oceans with a boat and conservation officers with a quad and a bear trap. • ICBC and Kamloops Fire Rescue fire truck. • Police helicopter (unless required operationally). • Safety Bear and Community Safety members.

Wine

Down with Us Spring has Sprung! - Pair like a Pro By Lianne Milobar, Stag’s Head Liquor Crocuses, daffodils and magnolias have sprung, bursting with colour. Fruit trees have scattered their delicate blossoms. Spring is here and the time to ready our homes, plant our gardens and plan gathering with friends is now. Had you run enthusiastically to check what’s in your cellar to celebrate the season with, only to discover that all you’re left with are big winter reds like Syrah or Cabernet Sauvignon? Those do well for hearty winter dinners or summer’s grilled steaks, but they won’t quench your spring fever! So, what should you venture out to look for? Spring is for lighter fare like young asparagus, leafy dandelion greens and thinly sliced smoked salmon that call out for acidic Rieslings, dry Rosés and crisp Sauvignon Blancs. Baked ham begs for a chilled, strawberryflavoured Rosé or a young, fruity Beaujolais made from Gamay grapes. Prefer white? Try Chenin Blanc, as its crisp, fruity flavours will complement ham. Spring dishes of rosemary and garlic roasted leg of lamb with Pinot Noir, Pasta Primavera with Sauvignon Blanc and Sunday roast chicken with Riesling should all be staples, along with rhubarb crisp paired to a late-harvest Riesling for the ultimate spring dessert. In beautiful British Columbia and the United States of America, Sauvignon Blanc is labelled as such, but the U.S. will also sometimes label Sauvignon Blanc as Fumé Blanc. Sauvignon Blanc from the Bordeaux region in southwest France is also labelled Graves, Sauternes or Entre-Deux-Mers. Sauvignon Blanc is refreshingly crisp, high in acid and capable of producing fine dry or sweet wines.

Cooler or rainy spring days, when you still feel the need for slightly heartier foods to warm your soul, is the time to open up a light and fruity Bardolino to go with spicy sausage and tortellini, or a young Chianti (not a reserva) to pair with a bold and smoky Amatriciana sauce. As spring temperatures rise above 10 C, the vines awaken from their dormancy and unfurl delicate leafy shoots from their buds. This is known as ‘bud break’ and is fraught with danger for the vine as spring temperatures can suddenly drop, causing irreparable damage as the young growth has no protection from the cold or pests. Once the leafy shoots are able to continue basking in the warm glow of the sunlight, they will transform the energy into fuel for growth - the process know as photosynthesis. When temperatures reach about 20 C, the vine will bloom flowers that need fertilization to become the berries used in winemaking. The flowering stage is yet another critical period as sudden harsh winds, pelting rain, pests or spring frost could cause the tiny flowers to fall off, creating a potential loss of fruit. As a few more weeks pass, the small and hard berries are developed, yet still face the same potential dangers as during the flowering stage. Veraison is a French word that basically means ‘ripening’ and is the stage that the hard, green berries change colour - yellow-green for white grapes and black-purple for red grapes. Inside the berry, the sugar content starts to increase while the sour acid starts to decrease. Once the grapes are sweet enough, they are harvested either by hand or by machine. Whatever your taste or budget, there are numerous wines to choose from. Some of my favourite spring B.C. wines around the $20 and under range are: Harper’s Trail Rosé; Monster Vineyards Rosé; White Bear Riesling; Wild Goose Vineyards Riesling; Mission Hill Five Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc; Blue Mountain Vineyards and Cellars Sauvignon Blanc; Arrowleaf Cellars Pinot Noir; and Gray Monk Estate Winery Pinot Noir.

Rugby Raiders fly provincial banner By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders are provincial champions. Kamloops downed the Nanaimo Hornets 34-10 in Vancouver on Saturday, May 4, claiming the B.C. Rugby Union Big Kahuna Women’s Division One championship and the Karen Moore Cup. “We’ve had some great seasons and been in the final a few times now, but this is the first time that we’ve finally won the title,” Kamloops captain Kelsey Winter said. “It’s just so great for our club to have an undefeated season. “Nanaimo was a strong team and that was a great battle.” Kamloops, which posted a perfect 8-0 record en route to the title, exploded out of the gate and earned a commanding 24-0 lead by halftime.

Nanaimo responded with a valiant effort in the second half. Kalea Nokleby and Danielle Plysiuk scored two tries apiece for Kamloops in the championship game, with Erin Connelly-Reed adding a single. Jess Oldenburger added one penalty kick and three conversions. Angela Buick had a strong game for the Hornets, scoring a pair of tries. “We brought champagne and some former Kamloops players who were there gave us some more,” said Connelly-Reed, noting the party continued at The Commodore on Saturday night. “Everybody who was there definitely took a nice big drink out of the Cup.” — with files from BCRU

The Jackal has his day By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Jackal slayed The Dragon and claimed the Canadian Sport Muay Thai title belt on Friday, May 3, at the Richmond Olympic Oval. “I knew the hard work was paying off as soon as the second round hit,� said Kamloops product Jason (The Jackal) Szakal, who earned a unanimousdecision victory over Victor (The Dragon) Wang of Vancouver in the five-round bout. “He was sitting down in the corner and I was standing.� Wang came out strong in the first round and tried to finish the fight with head kicks, but the Kamloops product, who trains out of LaRoche World Gung Fu and Kickboxing on the North Shore, weathered the storm.

Friday, May 24, 2013

Another LaRoche fighter — (Ruthless) Lucas Taylor — was victorious on Friday. Taylor moved his record to 3-1 with a unanimous-decision win over Tim Packer of Victoria in a three-round lightweight bout (130 pounds). LaRoche said the

victories will likely qualify both fighters for national-team trials, with Szakal expected to fight for another Muay Thai title in the coming months. “I had cousins, my mom and my dad at the fight,� Szakal said. “I was just ecstatic.�

town of Falkland is Pillar Lake, a favourite with local anglers. This popular family fishing lake may not be very big, but it has an excellent sport fishery and is not too heavily fished. Pillar Lake offers steep dropoffs and deep holes ideal for trolling. For fly-fishers, chironomids produce in the early season with damselfly and dragonfly imitations performing best toward the summer months. Most fly-anglers target the shoals at the north end of the lake. The lake is closed to ice fishing in the winter and has a motor-size restriction of no larger than 10 hp (7.5 kw) during the open water season. The ice typically comes off in early April April.

Blazers draft forward Benjafield 19th overall By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

Matt Recchi is always on the lookout for “winners.” That is what the Kamloops Blazers’ director of player personnel thinks he found in Quinn Benjafield, who the team picked 19th overall in the first round of the WHL Bantam Draft, held last week in Calgary. “The big factor is that he’s a winner,”

Recchi said. “He scored big goals. He was one of the leaders at the St. Albert Tournament. He was one of the leaders at Westerns. He was very good at provincials.” Benjafield, a sixfeet, 155-pound, 1998-born forward, racked up 132 points, 63 of them goals, in 70 games last season with North Vancouver’s North Shore Winter Club,

which won silver at the Western Canadian Championship after claiming provincial tier 1 gold. “There was no debate at the table when he was available for us,” Recchi said. The Blazers picked 10 players — F Benjafield, F Jermaine Loewen (Round 3, 48th overall), D Dawson Davidson (Round 3, 58th), F Phillip Knies (Round 4, 85th), D James Miller (Round 6,

129th), F Garrett Pilon (Round 7, 133rd), D Clint Coleburn (Round 7, 151st), G Dylan Ferguson (Round 8, 166th), F Keenan Roszko (Round 8, 173rd) and F Jordan Deyrmenjian (Round 10, 217th). The strategy behind taking six forwards: “We were basically looking for the best players available,” Recchi said. “The best players available, most of the time, we felt,

were forwards.” Grant Connell, a former professional tennis player, is Benjafield’s uncle. Connell won 22 ATP doubles championships. The Vancouver Giants picked Tyler Benson of Edmonton first overall. There were three Kamloops products drafted. Defenceman Cody Allen was picked by the Lethbridge Hurricanes in Round 3, forward Rob Johnson

2014 Brier: Fans, volunteers wanted By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

No surprise here. The organizing committees of the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier in Kamloops want fans to buy tickets. “I see that most of what I consider prime seats seem to be snapped up,” host committee chairman Norm Daley said.

“You should get out there and pick up your seats.” The Brier will be held from March 1 to March 9 at Interior Savings Centre (ISC). Daley said about 2,400 event passes have been sold since they went on sale in February. The capacity at ISC for the Brier will be about 5,000. Single-draw tickets will

likely go on sale about six weeks before the event. The host committee met last week in Kamloops with Canadian Curling Association officials. A press conference on Thursday, May 2, revealed the committees’ obvious desire for seats to be filled and a need for volunteers. “We’re a ways out from the

event, but we want these volunteers in place so that we can do some marketing initiatives to get out and promote the event,” Daley said. He would like to have 500 volunteers on board. There are about 220 spots left to be filled. To buy tickets or volunteer, go online to curling. ca/2014brier.

‘The world is a different place’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s 2013. In Canada and most of the Western world, we walk around with powerful supercomputers in our pockets, capable of accessing any information imaginable in seconds. Our television is high definition and we watch what we want when we want thanks to PVRs. Our cars know where we want to go and tell us how to get there. It’s not The Jetsons, but it’s close. In Tanzania, meanwhile, witch doctors pay bounties for limbs of albinos, claiming the body parts can be used to create magic potions. There are children who have had their arms lopped off with machetes and mothers missing hands and feet. Albinos, when they die, are buried encased in cement to prevent grave robbers from stealing their bones for mystical purposes. This is happening in 2013. That’s why eight Kamloops residents are going to Tanzania later this summer, hoping to lend a helping hand — and compassion — during their stay and leave some money behind to aid the cause. The group is working with a Surrey-based

Want to help? The group will hold a number of fundraising events prior to the trip, including a dessert-and-movie night this weekend. On Saturday, May 11, the film White and Black will air at Schoening Funeral Service, 513 Seymour St., with doors opening at 5:30 p.m. and the movie starting at 6 p.m. Ash will also be there to introduce the film. Admission is by donation, with a suggested amount of $10. Organizers ask that attendees RSVP to 250-374-1454. On June 8, the group is hosting a five-kilometre walk/run on McArthur Island to raise money. Registration is $30 per person or $50 per family. For more information, call 250-374-1454. To donate online, go to canadahelps. org/gp/26334. organization called Under the Same Sun, which works to stop the problems facing people with albinism in Tanzania. Rick McArthur, general manager of Schoening Funeral Service, learned about the foundation two years ago while working in the Lower Mainland. “I was working at a funeral home in Langley and one of the

ministers we’d phone to help out with services said he was going to Tanzania,” he said. “I said, ‘Oh, that would be a pretty interesting thing to do.’” McArthur and his wife, Diane, started looking into it, and they are now in the home stretch of preparations. The trip is slated for July 22 to Aug. 5. Diane said she was shocked to learn about what life is like for albi-

nos in Tanzania. “The world is a different place,” she said. “These children [with albinism], for the most part, don’t have any families or their families won’t claim them. “We just want to fill their days for them and show them that not everybody hates them.” The group will be spending a good portion of its time at an orphanage for albino children — a facility with armed guards on staff 24-seven to keep limb marauders at bay. And, because they’ll be travelling with an albino — Peter Ash, the founder of Under the Same Sun — they will be accompanied by security guards for the entirety of the trip. It’s hard to imagine the things taking place in Tanzania are happening now and not 200 years ago, Diane said. “The witch doctors tell people that albinos have magic powers, so you take their body parts and make potions out of them,” she said. “The witch doctors tell them that they’re not really human, so it’s not murder because they’re ghosts.” Ruth Juras is one of the six other Kamloops residents joining the McArthurs on the trip. “You’ve got to expect the unexpected,” said Juras, who went on a mission trip to

And SO MANY cool features! Double sunroof, power tilt/telescoping wheel, DVD player, USB dock, side blindspot alerts, hot/cold seat controls, and rear cargo area stereo controls. Also, the heads-up display projected right on the windshield was AMAZING!

Impala earns style points By Jim Robinson METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

The longer wheelbase of the 2014 Impala is evident, resulting in more front and rear leg room and a bigger trunk than the outgoing model.

life, in this case to 120,000 km — double the life of rotors on the outgoing model. Larger 19- and 20-inch wheels are also available. Starting with GM’s Quiet Tuning — introduced on the Buick Verano — the Impala has upped its noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) game, resulting in some of the quietest cars on the road. On the Impala, you will find acoustic windshield and side glass, triple-sealed doors with an acoustic perimeter rain deflector, acoustic baffled baffles between the inner and outer body panels, cavities filled with foam and sound deadener on the cargo floor. Aiding all this is 12 per cent better aerodynamics through a number of things such as wind tunnel tuned side mirrors and wind blockers in front of the tires. The four-cylinder models also gets under body panels and a shuttered radiator grille. Safety begins with 10 standard airbags plus optional rear cross traffic alert, front and back collision warning, adaptive cruise control, side blind sport warning, lane department alert, and OnStar which is

still the best navigation/ emergency/connectivity system on the market in my estimation. The reason is live people are there to assist you, it never goes out of date and the turnby-turn route guidance has never, ever, been wrong when I have used it. Which brings me to MyLink, the latest version of Chevrolet’s infotainment system. Centred on an eightinch screen with natural voice recognition (a first for Chevrolet), icons depict various functions such as phone, audio, weather, satellite radio, map (navigation), settings, OnStar and video. The latter allows movies to be playing on the screen when the Impala is not moving. Basically, you can control this by touch but the idea is to use voice commands wherever possible, so both hands are on the wheel and your focus is straight ahead. With my usual driving companion, we were let loose in the Kawartha Lakes region of Ontario, headed for the town of Haliburton. I suggested going over to the village of Dwight, where there

Pricing for the 2.4litre engine with eAssist will be announced at a later date. Destination charge on all models is $1,550. Chevrolet notes the starting price of the 2014 LS is only $145 more than the 2013 model. Cargo volume is 532 litres (18.8 cubic feet), which is actually larger than the topline Cadillac XTS. Passenger volume is up over the outgoing model at 2,973 litres (105 cubic feet). To put that into perspective, the wheelbase on the 2014 Impala is 1.2 inches longer but that results in 3.5 inches more front legroom and 2.2 inches more rear legroom. Towing is allowed but only when properly equipped at 1,000 pounds. The Impala now comes with standard 18-inch wheels but the big story is the brakes. They use new technology to extend rotor

TOP ACHIEVER FOR THE MONTH OF APRIL

W

HILE Chevrolet’s full-size sedan has had a number of different names over the decades (Caprice, Lumina, Bel Air) Impala immediately sums up for many what the North American family car was and is. GM has excelled in making brand names household words. When it comes to Chevrolet, say Impala or Stingray and people know immediately what you are talking about. As this is being read, the 2014 Impala is rolling off the assembly lines in Oshawa and Detroit-Hamtramck in Michigan ready to go head-to-head with Ford Taurus and Dodge Charger in a competition triangle that has been going on for longer that many of us have been alive. What consumers will notice is Impala’s chic new styling with a long hood and sculptured flanks that mask the long wheelbase of what is, when you get inside, a truly large car. The Impala will come with three engines, all with direct injection and driving the front wheels through a six-speed automatic. There is no plan for an all-wheel-drive version. Available first is a 3.6-litre V6 with 303 horse power and 264 pound-feet of torque. By summer, there will also be a new, 2.5-litre four-cylinder with 195 horse power and 187 pound-feet of torque. And, by the end of the year, a 2.4-litre fourcylinder with battery eAssist will be available. Fuel-consumption rating for the V6 is 11.1/6.9/9.2L/100 km city/highway/combined and 9.9/6.3/8.3L/100 km for the 2.5-litre. Chevrolet will offer the Impala in LS, LT and LTZ trim levels. The 3.6-litre will

We learned later that day the Impala LTZ we drove had a glitch in the voice recognition. On the second day, we had a LT and the system worked as advertised. Call me a Luddite, but I still prefer turning knobs and pushing buttons. Suspension is MacPherson struts up front and a multi-link independent system at the rear with the front strut tower reinforced for 2014 with rebound springs in the coils to make the ride feel more solid. Throughout our drive over two days, we discussed just what could be said about the ride and handling to add some colour to the story. We concluded that Chevrolet had accomplished what it set up to do — and that is to offer a fullsize sedan that meets the expectations of people in the market. That means being smooth and predictable on the road, spacious, well equipped, easy to operate and maintain, good on fuel and with a strong resale value at the end of the owner experience. After all, that has been the cornerstone of the Chevrolet brand since GM acquired it in 1918 to compete against Ford’s Model T and those core values still hold true today.

Volvo Car Group has completed extensive testing of kinetic flywheel technology on public roads — and the results confirm that this is a light, financially viable and very ecoefficient solution. “The results show that this technology combined with a fourcylinder turbo engine has the potential to reduce fuel consumption by up to 25 per cent compared with a six-cylinder turbo engine at a comparable performance level,” said Derek Crabb, vice-president of powertrain engineering at Volvo. “Giving the driver an extra 80 horsepower, it makes a car with a four-cylinder engine accelerate like one with a six-cylinder unit.” The experimental system, known as Flywheel KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System), is fitted to the rear axle. During retardation, the braking energy causes the flywheel to spin at up to 60,000 revolutions per minute. When the car starts moving off again, the flywheel’s rotation is transferred to the rear wheels via a specially designed transmission. The combustion engine that drives the front wheels is switched off as soon as braking begins. The energy in the flywheel can then be used to accelerate the vehicle when it is time to move off again or to power the vehicle once it reaches cruising speed. Since the flywheel is activated by braking, and the duration of the energy storage — that is to say the length of time the flywheel spins — is limited, the technology is at its most effective during driving featuring repeated stops and starts. In other words, the fuel savings will be greatest when driving in busy urban traffic and during active driving.

LOCAL NEWS Finn, a beautiful Lab-cross, and Jake, a gentle tabby, are looking for homes after spending time being loved by students in the animal-health technology program at Thompson Rivers University.

McHappy Day is here

Star-struck at university Joanne Rosvick, Thompson Rivers University’s associate professor in the department of physical sciences, will be guest presenter of the Kamloops Astronomical Society at its monthly meeting this week. The society will meet on Wednesday, May 8, at 7:30 p.m. in room S375 of the TRU Science Building . Rosvick will talk about star formation near the young, open cluster Berkeley 59. She will explain how infrared images are used to determine which objects were actually newly forming stars in the dark dust clouds near the cluster. Rosvick will also explain what new data from the giant James Clerk Maxwell Telescope in Hawaii can tell us about the conditions required for forming stars and what role Berkeley 59 might have played in triggering the stars to form.

Calling all animal lovers Finn wants a home. He’d really like one that doesn’t have any cats, not for any allergic reasons but, because, well, Finn is still learning to be around his feline counterparts. And, as a three-yearold Lab cross, Finn also would love to share his new home with someone who is confident handling dogs and understands they need a lot of exercise. Finn is the last of the canines calling the animal-health technology program at Thompson Rivers University home, where students have worked with him and

the other animals in the program. This means, among other things, that Finn has been trained to a degree, neutered, vaccinated, dewormed, tattooed and fitted with an identification microchip. Sonia Walczak, an instructor in the program, said Finn can sometimes be possessive of food or toys if other dogs are around, but he is smart and loves to learn new things. Finn is sharing his home with five cats that also remain up for adoption from the pro-

Art + Volunteer Auction

gram — but one stands out for Walczak. Jake is an adult grey tabby, gentle once he’s familiar with someone, great around other cats and OK with calm dogs. It would be best to adopt Finn and Jake together. Jake likes quiet, so he is better with older children or in an adultonly home and comes with the same neutering, shots and identifications. Adoption fees are $75. To make an appointment to meet Finn, Jake or the other cats, call 250-828-5174.

TRU’s Enactus club working for the greater good

MEANWHILE, A HALF-CENTURY LATER . . . Preparations are in full swing for the Kam High 50th Grad Reunion, to be held from Sept. 13 to Sept. 15 at the Plaza Hotel. Organizing committee members Kats Kitamura (left), Sharon Mulder, Anne Cavazzi, Darlene DeCicco, Louise DeMarni and Arlene Minosky pored over historic photographs and school yearbooks recently at the Kamloops Museum and Archives. Ninety-two students in the class of 1963 graduated. Anyone who was a member of the class and is interested in attending the reunion can send an e-mail with contact information to kamhigh1963@ gmail.com. Dave Eagles/KTW

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Picture a business student at Thompson Rivers University. Does the image imagined include planting trees or painting children’s faces? If the student belongs to Enactus, the largest social club on campus, the image would be accurate. The group — not restricted to business and economics students, but containing a large contingent of them — grew from the former Students in Free Enterprise (SIFE) branch. The international SIFE organization didn’t find the name particularly reflective of what its members do, said Enactus incoming president Acacia Schmientenkop, so the new name — which stands for Entrepreneurs in Activities for the Greater Good — was chosen. The group’s membership continues to grow, with 93 members who, in the past year, have put in 14,000 volunteer hours in the community. Only executive members get course credit for their involvement, Schmientenkop said, largely because they meet weekly and keep everything moving forward. Outgoing president Mitesh Patel said projects members have taken on include working with four schools, teaching 269 students about the environment and the economics of protecting it; working with the City of Kamloops in Aberdeen by going door-to-door with an education program on how to reduce water consumption; and working with organizations that deal with at-risk and special-needs youth, new mothers and others to increase their understanding of the day-to-day realities of the financial world. They have also planted trees at the Tournament Capital Ranch in Rayleigh and put their face-painting artistic skills to work during a recent fundraiser for the Kamloops Food Bank at grocery stores in Kamloops. They also provide consulting services through senior students to small businesses, non-profits and student entrepreneurs, all overseen by faculty to ensure the information shared is consistent and relevant. As they have helped others and shared their expertise and knowledge, they have furthered skills as socially responsible business leaders, Schmietenkop said — and it’s led to some recognition. In March, a team of Enactus members competed against 18 other Western Canadian universities in a financial-literacy competition and came out on top. The team was runner-up in eco-living and entrepreneurship categories in the same competition and is in Toronto until May 8 for the national competition. Before they left, team members joined faculty and other club members for An Evening with Enactus Thompson Rivers, a celebration at Colombo Hall on May 2 that brought the group’s many supporters together for hors d’oeuvres, a silent auction and networking as the students showcased their work. Patel and Schmientenkop are clear on what they get from their involvement and how it will help them in the future. Patel said there was never any doubt he would join; siblings who already attended TRU were members of SIFE and entrepreneurship is a strong belief in his family. The skills he is learning, Patel said, will help him when he starts his own business, even though he’s not sure if he plans to enter the hotel business, as have other family members, or strike out in another direction. Schmientenkop had considered a law career, but business has won out and she’s hoping to take the skills with her into a career in public relations and community development.

COMMUNITY FIDDLIN’ AROUND IN WESTSYDE Gary Hill of Vernon warms up the fiddle while waiting to compete in the Kamloops Old Time Fiddle Contest and Provincial Championships, which were held on Saturday, May 4, at St. John Vianney Catholic Church in Westsyde. For results from the competition, turn to page B3. George Wycherley/KTW

LOWTHER MELVIN MONTAGUE Melvin Montague Lowther passed away on April 29, 2013 in Kamloops, BC at the age of 92 years. He is survived by his loving wife Thelma; son Wayne (Diana), daughters Pam, Brenda (Ivan); grandchildren Jeremy (Dawn), Rebecca (Trevor), Jessica ca (Dan); great grandchildren Quinton,, Kai, Corbin, Max, Dex; and sister Lillian as well as numerous extended family and friends. Mel was born on the family homestead eight miles east of Assiniboia, Saskatchewan. He moved with his family to Readlyn, Saskatchewan in 1929 where he met his true love, Thelma Falt, whom he married in 1943. In his youth Mel was an avid sportsman...playing baseball, hockey, tennis and curling. Mel and Thelma continued to live in Readlyn until 1952 when they moved to Calgary, Alberta. Mel served in the RCAF in Iceland during WWII and upon returning from the war he operated the drugstore/post office in Readlyn. During his years in Calgary from 1952 until 1973 he worked for Western Supplies and Westburne Industries. In 1973 he and his family moved to Kamloops, BC where he continued working for Westburne until his retirement in 1985. He spent his retirement years in Kamloops where he remained very active, spending much of his time compiling the family history using a computer and the internet for research and contacting relatives from Canada and overseas. He also continued to do his own yard work and home maintenance right up until his passing. Mel sadly passed away only 4 months prior to celebrating their 70th Wedding Anniversary, an event that he was so looking forward to. Mel was a kind, compassionate and loving husband, father, grandfather and great grandfather and will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends. No service by request.

Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Daniel Kleefeld

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the Àelds of ripening grain.

July 1, 1950 ~ October 9, 2012

Please join us for a Celebration of Life. It will be held on Friday May 10, 2013 12:30 pm at St. Andrews on the Square, 159 Seymour St. Kamloops

I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling Áight. I am the start-shine of the night. I am in the Áowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there – I did not die.
