MLA PROFILE

TODD STONE UNTURNED

By Andrea Klassen

“T

ODD STONE: A young Liberalcum-lawyer with his eyes on McGill and federal politics.” Like a fair share of predictions made at the age of 17, the summary in the Kam High yearbook — class of 19891990 — doesn’t quite resemble the man at 41. But, the two words that remain essential to Kamloops-South Thompson’s new MLA are there: Politics

and Liberal. In a provincial election filled with surprises, Stone’s 5,000-plus-vote margin of victory in longtime B.C. Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger’s old riding is pretty far down the list of shocks. To many of those close to Stone — friends, family and fellow politicos — it was as inevitable a step as teenaged Todd’s yearbook write-up makes it sound, even if the level of government to which he aspired has changed since the 1990s.

The eldest of three children, Stone moved to Kamloops at age nine when his father, Ken, took a job with the newly created Office of the Fire Commissioner. His mother, Bernadette, remembers him as a typical kid, playing soccer and softball and taking organ lessons at World of Music. But, by 16, the political bug had bitten Stone hard, thanks in part to his high school history teacher, Walter Trkla. X See POLITICS A4

From Kamloops High to the legislature in Victoria, Todd Stone has long had politics in his blood.

Mounties seeking witnesses to accident Kamloops RCMP are looking for witnesses to a incident on Highway 1 in Valleyview on Thursday, May 16, in which two people were hit by a vehicle. Police say a male was walking east along the westbound lane of Highway 1 at about 10 p.m., pushing a shopping cart and pulling another cart with a second male in it. An oncoming vehicle hit the carts, knocking the male in the cart into a nearby ditch. Both his legs were broken. The second male was knocked to the ground and suffered minor injuries. Anyone with information is asked to call the detachment at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

In December of that year, during an interview with KTW about his first eight months in his new role, O’Fee noted nothing is necessarily permanent. “You don’t know where the world is going to take you,” he said. “There’s a path there and it will present itself.” Prior to becoming TIB CEO, O’Fee served 11 years on

Patrick O’Neil, blind since birth, spent a year saving up enough money to buy the 24-speed bike — a two-wheeled beauty he will be riding with friend and navigator Marlin Brietzke. “You know, some people have always wanted a bike?” he said. “I was the same way.” Dave Eagles photos/KTW

At 65, ready to wheel into a new passion said. “I was the same way.” Growing up without any vision on busy Island of Vancouver did not leave many opportunities for O’Neil to hop on a bike. Now he can — with the help of Marlin Brietzke, who got to know O’Neil through their membership at the Centre For Seniors Information. When Brietzke heard of O’Neil’s dream to ride a bike around Kamloops, he decided to do what he could to help. After all, Brietzke has always been a fan of biking. In fact, many years ago, he biked for five-and-a-half hours, one way, to see his wife. Now, Brietzke has taken the role of lead driver on O’Neil’s tandem bike. He is not only O’Neil’s eyes, but a caretaker of sorts while they navigate through the city. “Communication is very important,” Brietzke said, “especially during the start-ups and stopping.” Brietzke coaches O’Neil when to pedal and when to glide as they make their way around.

He’s 65 and can’t wait to put some miles on the first bike he has ever bought. Cheers erupted from the small crowd that had gathered outside the Centre For Seniors Information as Patrick O’Neil rolled in on his brand new tandem bicycle. O’Neil, blind since birth, spent a year saving up enough money to buy the 24-speed bike — and he couldn’t be more proud. He spent a year making instalment payments on the $1,000 purchase price, saving whatever he could from his monthly cheques. Spoke ‘n Motion in Kamloops ordered the bike for O’Neil. Finally, just a few weeks ago, he was able to take home the shiny silver chariot for the first time. The smile never left his face as O’Neil explained just how special a simple bicycle can be. “You know, some people have always wanted a bike,” he

The biggest challenge, however, is not O’Neil’s vision — it is the drivers of passing vehicles. “They do not realize that he is blind,” Brietzke said. “He has had to tell a few people” O’Neil added. Brietzke is hoping to install a tall flag on the back of the bike to signify who they are in hopes passersby will be a little more understanding. O’Neil’s first bike ride was a few weeks ago, but it only lasted 10 minutes before his posterior got sore. A sheepskin seat cover has since been installed to help with the problem and the two are now clocking the hours. Brietzke said they hope to make their way up to threeand four-hour rides, but try to stay close to home in case they need to head back quickly. They are enjoying the freedom the bike has granted them and look forward to becoming closer friends through their trips. While O’Neil has always loved being outside and going for walks, biking offers him a little different experience. “I like the fresh air blowing on me,” he said.

Politics in his blood since teenage years X From A1

“They just started talking politics and Todd really just seemed to get into it,” mom Bernadette says. Soon, Stone and his friends were forming their own Young Liberals club and holding meetings in the family’s backyard. Depending on the day, the club sometimes drew more members than the back deck could handle, relegating some Young Liberals to the lawn. Trkla — who remains friends with his former pupil — remembers Stone as one of a group of World History 12 students more interested than normal in world affairs. When Paul Martin caught Stone’s interest after a particularly eventful federal election, he brought Trkla a poster of the federal Liberal MP for his classroom wall, already covered in world leaders. “He was involved where many others were not,” Trkla says. “Throughout his life, politics was in his blood.” University followed, with Stone choosing to study political science in Victoria. “I told him to take a break from politics when he started university,” dad Ken recalls. “This first time he comes back, he’s already organized a Young Liberals club.” Politics also had a way of making it into Stone’s personal life. It was federal-election day in 1997 and Stone, then working as an aide for Gordon Campbell, was helping Liberal candidate Clark Roberts get out the vote

when he crossed paths with Roberts’ niece, Chantelle. A veteran campaigner from the age of eight, Chantelle — whose grandfather, Stan Roberts, had once run for federal Reform party leadership against Preston Manning — was as well-versed in politics as Stone. “There was definitely some attraction there,” Chantelle recalls. Not long after, a mutual friend called her, saying Stone had expressed interest in her, but was too shy to call himself. “At the same time, she [the mutual friend] called Todd and said, ‘I hope you don’t mind, but Chantelle asked for your phone number, but she’s a little bit shy,’” Chantelle says. He called soon after. “It was a good match,” Chantelle says. “We had lots to talk about, we’re both Catholic and we both dislike peas. So, really, marriage was the only option.” When the family returned to Kamloops a few years later, in part to take advantage of the city’s cheaper office space for Stone’s fledgling tech company, iCompass, they remained active on the local political scene. “He moved back to Kamloops and started his business and we thought, ‘Oh, maybe he won’t,” says Bernadette. “Then he was Kevin Krueger’s campaign manager and I said to Ken, ‘Uh oh, here he goes again.’” Soon Stone was sitting on the board of governors at Cariboo College — or, as it was about to become known, Thompson Rivers University.

A quirky side lurks beneath the surface “It was jut a number of things that came together that made the possibility of us becoming a university,” recalls Ron Olynyk, then board chairman. “And, when you look at the people that were on the board at the time, everybody had different roles and different opportunities to speak to different people, who would then move things along.” In Stone’s case, it was his connections to Liberal MLAs. “Because it is such a political decision, that does play a very big part in it,” says Olynyk, who went on to serve as Stone’s financial agent during his election campaign.

Behind the politics, however, there’s a hidden, goofy side to Stone. When he and Terry Lake, Kamloops-North Thompson’s Liberal MLA, discovered a line of men’s designer underwear called Todd and Terry, they tracked down a pair and brought it to a campaign event that also featured Premier Christy Clark. “He actually has a really good sense of humour,” says Chantelle, who describes her husband as the member of the household most likely to be singing along to Shania Twain. “He’s really quirky and he does a happy food dance when he’s got a big steak in front of him. He’s got a quirky side I don’t think people see all the time.”

It’s HIP to to be SQUARE dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

At one-square inch — not counting the connector post — Square Register is a tiny gizmo that has attracted attention from several Kamloops businesses. At its simplest, Square Register is a way of connecting an iPhone, iPad or Android to making a credit-card payment to the owner of the device. Plug it into the headphone jack, swipe the client’s credit card and the transfer is complete and in the appropriate bank account — usually within a day. Bill McQuarrie of RGB Image Masters, a Kamloops company specializing in printing large-format fine-art photographs and digital art, called the technology amazing “and moving closer to the cashless society.” He likes it because he doesn’t need to rent equipment from his bank, he can do the transaction wherever he is, there is no set-up fee, the reader is provided for free and

the transaction fee is just 2.75 per cent. Tim Weiss of The Sprinkler Guy agrees, noting he likes having the platform’s simplicity and having the ability to take payments “on the spot, thereby reducing waiting time to get paid.” Cameron Grant of Kamloops Hypnotherapy and Psychotherapy said a colleague brought her attention to the device at a trade show and she ordered one. Grant said the application interface is easy to use.

She could set up the receipt with her logo and email or print it for the client. “It allows me to do a creditcard transaction in my therapy room rather than in the front office, and also in the field.” Lindsay Wiese of Square, a San Francisco-based company created by Twitter co-creator Jack Dorsey, said the pointof-sale payment plan provides analytics with detailed information to help merchants. Since its introduction in the U.S. three years ago, the hardware is now used by about two-million customers and processes about $8 billion in transactions annually. The company expanded into Canada late last year. McQuarrie would like to see Square Register also accept debit cards, but likes that it sends an email to the client. “There is no wasted paper and the customer has a permanent digital record of the transaction,” McQuarrie said. “I mean, how cool is that?

Healing process a slow journey By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

He also called 911 several times asking for help to escape, she said, all the result of his brain trauma. Forry must wear protective headgear because there is only skin and brain on one side of his skull and any impact could have serious consequences. He also has some serious injuries to his left eye.

Ann praised RIH for saving his life. “Considering all the possible outcomes, he’s doing great,� she said. “He almost died so many times. There are so many people who helped him, from the doctors and nurses to the first responders to the witness who cared for him there until the responders got there.�

The healing process is slow — but there — for Michael Forry. The man who spent weeks in Royal Inland Hospital’s intensive care in a coma, hooked up to a tracheotomy tube, is up and walking a few steps in his room at Lions Gate Hospital in North Vancouver, to where he was transferred last week. His sister, Ann, said Forry’s health remains precarious, mainly because a large part of his skull is missing from the hit he took from a longboard during a confrontation on March 24 in Brocklehurst. Kamloops RCMP said the incident began when a group of teens jaywalked across Tranquille Road and a motorist honked at the group. Someone or something hit the Ford Expedition, in which Forry was a passenger. The driver parked his truck at the 7-Eleven store on Tranquille Road and Forry, 46, got out to speak with the teens

when he was hit. A 15-year-old male was detained and questioned by police, but no charges have been laid. RCMP have issued two requests for witnesses to come forward, including the most-recent plea, asking for help in finding Jason Flemming, who wrote a letter saying relatives were witnesses. Flemming said he lives in North Vancouver, but left no contact information and attempts to locate him have failed. The family was eager to have Forry moved to the Coast, Ann said, not because of the quality of care he was receiving in Kamloops, but because everyone else, including Forry’s 13-year-old daughter, is now living there. She said his hospital room door must remain locked because Forry gets confused as his short- and longterm memory abilities have been significantly affected. She noted he tried to leave Royal Inland, unsure why he was there at the time.

E FOUND HIMSELF in Las Vegas, where he scored tickets to see Elton John, the Rolling Stones and Carlos Santana on three successive nights. So, befitting such a cornucopia of concert concentration, my brother posted the rock n’ roll news on his Facebook feed, which garnered much attention and many comments — most of the envious variety. However, the comment thread took an odd turn, as it often does on Facebook, and my sibling’s initial posting showing him at the Stones concert spawned a list of comments from friends and family that somehow went from thoughts on Mick Jagger and Keith Richards to ruminations on The Waltons TV show of the 1970s. Yes, Facebook can take one on a trip to destinations unimagined and, in this age of rapidly changing technology, I propose a word for the rapid change of topics on Facebook threads. Call it “fadebooking” — the act of a specific topic online going seriously off the rails for no discernible reason. Adding to the venerable Oxford English Dictionary happens all the time. In March of this year, the definitive decider of definitions added 98 words to its impressive roster, including “uplink,” “downlink” and, yes, “defriend.” So, why not “fadebooking”? If William Chestor Minor can claim an impressive number of Oxford submissions, surely those of us who are not Civil War-scarred physicians incarcerated in a late-19th century insane asylums can add one or two. Minor was a retired U.S. Army surgeon who lost his mind due to experiences in that most destructive war, found himself in England and murdered an innocent man who, in Minor’s delusional

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS mind, was an intruder. Minor wound up in the Broadmoor Criminal Lunatic Asylum, from where he corresponded with James Murray, who was compiling the Oxford English Dictionary. The tale is expertly told by Simon Winchester in The Professor and the Madman. If you love the story of words, read this book. Language evolves, which is why some words have their practical meanings change completely in the span of a few decades (“gay”), some words simply die (“snoutfair”) and some words stand the test of time — up to 20,000 years in some cases. Mark Pagel, a professor at Reading University in England, has tracked the ages of various words and has found that “who,” “two,” “three,” I” and “five” may be the oldest words still used in the English language, having likely been muttered by our Stone-Age ancestors. My interest was piqued yet again last week when my son mentioned he had created a new word — “theretical” — which he defined as the process of finding a better word for a word you already have. No, it’s not simply the act of finding a synonym, of finding another word; it’s the act of referring to a thesaurus (in

book or in mind) to find a better word to punch up your copy. “Theretical.” I like it. Which got me thinking, in honour of this election season, of a lexiconic refresher for our modern times: “Polled”: No, it’s not “pwned,” but the result is similar. To get “pwned” is to be defeated by a superior power. The word originated online and was a result of a misspelling. To get “polled” is to book a huge banquet hall, order copious amounts of food and drink and wax eloquent on the myriad legislative measures you will undertake — just before watching as the polls that foretold your landslide victory are replaced by the cold reality of harsh defeat. “Empeesculate”: The process in which naive, free-thinking members of Parliament actually speak their minds, only to be slapped mightily on the political wrist, after which all media questions are answered by the empeesculated MP simply reading answers to questions as crafted by the Prime Minister’s Office, all while denying they have been silenced by an overbearing and micromanaging prime minister and party structure. “Harpercrite”: Being a hypocrite in politics is easy. To reach “Harpercrite” heights, however, one must become prime minister and act as though a stunning amount of do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do does not signify a tattered character flaw. This would include, but not be limited to, vowing never to appoint senators, then appointing senators in record-setting speed; enacting fixed-election date legislation, then ignoring that law by calling an election on a whim; and calling out MPs with dubious expense claims — unless the spendthrifts are Conservative, in which case the silence is as deafening as Bev Oda’s arrogance. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Another election has come and gone and, once again, half of those eligible to vote in this province didn’t bother. And, really, who can blame them? In a political system in which candidates like the NDP’s Gary Holman (Saanich North and the Islands) can win a seat with just a third of the popular vote, is it any wonder the majority feel like their votes don’t count? When the B.C. Liberals can win a clear majority in the legislature with fewer than half the votes, and thus dictate legislation for the next four years unimpeded, is it any wonder why the other half feel completely disenfranchised? When the B.C. Conservatives can garner close to 80,000 votes and still have no representation in the legislature, is it any wonder why so many British Columbians feel like they don’t have a voice? Of course, representation means nothing in the provincial legislature if you are a member of a minority party. Because every vote in the legislature is whipped, there is no opportunity for meaningful debate and no chance for good ideas to be heard, should they come from a member of the opposition. When a majority government consistently votes in the legislature along party lines, as every ruling party in B.C. has done for more than 60 years, what we have is little more than a dictatorship dressed up to look like democracy. So, if every vote in the legislature is predetermined by the party in power, why have MLAs vote at all? If no meaningful debate takes place in the legislature — which is the reason it exists in the first place — and instead happens only behind closed doors by party insiders, why is the legislature even necessary? The provincial government could save millions in MLA salaries and pensions by doing away with this farce of an institution. Keep the building, of course. It could be turned into a museum, a monument to what democracy once was. Something is very wrong with our political system, and low voter turnout is symptomatic of this. The fact is, if you’re not with the winners, you’re a loser, and your voice doesn’t matter. — South Delta Leader

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Travel column: More to see in Arizona than Phoenix and a canyon: “This is an awesome article. “It’s nice to know there are people who make a point to come down in our direction. “It is very beautiful and interesting down here.” — posted by Melissa Cokely Gschwend

Re: Letter: On Ajax mine, believe science over corporate spin: “After seeing the proposed overview layout of the mine, I was aghast! “I felt sick to my stomach. “I realize jobs are important, but at what expense? “This city council has banned backyard fires, wants to eventually ban fireplaces and is eliminating residential use of caustic lawn/ garden chemicals — all in the name of creating cleaner air and a cleaner environment. “How can council let the city it represents be trampled and polluted by a proposed open-pit mine? “I would not have a problem at all with the mine if was farther away from the city. “Since that isn’t the case, I strongly believe the negatives far outweigh any positives.” — posted by Lori Hanson Quinton

Editor: Is a picture worth 1,000 words? I refer to the picture in the May 16 edition of KTW showing re-elected MLA Terry Lake and KGHM Ajax manager of external affairs Yves Lacasse in a warm embrace on election night. I comment on this not because this is about the Ajax proposal, or about the election, or about the effectiveness of Lake as MLA and environment minister. I comment because this photograph raises a major concern for me — impartiality in public office. Perception is everything in politics. Why, then, would we see the environment minister being congratulated so warmly by the proponent of a very controversial project which, as environment minister, MLA Lake plays such a major role in its outcome? I don’t know if these gentlemen are good friends, but that is not the point. However, if they are, Lake should have excluded himself from participating in the mine debate and approval process. If they are not, does this not suggest something rather alarming? Lacasse is clearly very happy to see Lake re-elected. What does that say? Ian McLean Kamloops

Q&A WE ASKED Have the political debates changed your mind as to who will receive your vote in the May 14 election?

SURVEY RESULTS

YES 4% NO 96% Yves Lacassse, manager of external affairs for KGHM Ajax, gives Terry Lake a congratulatory hug on election night. Lake was re-elected in a landslide and, as environment minister, will ultimately decide the fate of the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine. Dave Eagles/KTW

Story, pic of text Where, oh where, is all the money? was irresponsible Editor: The photo and article online showing Kamloops-South Thompson NDP candidate Tom Friedman’s congratulatory text to Liberal MLA-elect Todd Stone was irresponsible. There is the privacy issue of Friedman’s phone number being shown. Furthermore, the article shows unnecessary slander and political bias. The article shows little discretion and I do not know why a text message can be considered a worthy story. Considering this was published after the election, and therefore making attacks to promote another party is unnecessary, the article overlook ethics as well. This article has no place in any sort of publication and more noteworthy stories related to the election should be published in the future. Martin McFarlane Kamloops

Editor: The irrationality of British Columbia’s electorate has once again reared its ugly head. After the election, it is hard to remain positive and optimistic. It is dreadful that the ugly and nasty personal-attack campaign of untruthfulness has won thanks, in no small part, to the mainstream media’s unwillingness to tell the truth. Voter apathy also won and that is truly heartbreaking. It is at times really hard to believe fully grown adults still believe an NDP government would eliminate free enterprise and run the province into a black hole of debt. That is just fear-mongering. Plenty of incontestable data is available to help form a rational, educated opinion on a government’s past performance. For example, the Business Council of BC has available on its website a document titled called A Decade by Decade Review of British Columbia’s Economic Performance. It is free of charge and, especially the summary, very easy to read and

understand. UBC’s business school has done something similar. Using real data, we get facts — not emotional, dishonest ramblings about a questionable economic prosperity plan, all without concrete, long-term environmental oversight. Truly, who are we kidding? Even a layman’s look at our province should make one wonder. The last several years have seen strong demand for commodities, despite the dramatic economic slowdown in 2008 and 2009. Meanwhile, funding for many government programs and ministries has decreased, including the all-too-important, but always overlooked, Ministry of Environment. So, may I ask: Where is the money? Does the mainstream media have an answer for that one? We do walk the Earth with our feet; however, we must choose our paths with our heads! Pierre Filisetti Kamloops

r Privatization concerns at TRU ‘unfounded’ e y l F t o H University provost says policy reviews are routine matters By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Thompson Rivers University is taking issue with claims by its faculty union that the spectre of privatization looms. In an email to KTW, Uli Scheck, the university’s provost and vice-president academic, took issue with several points in a story published in KTW on May 16 (‘TRU faculty union fears privatization’). In that story, based on a letter from TRU Faculty Association president Jason Brown to union members, faculty were advised to attend an upcoming university senate meeting to protest a proposed policy change that would make some non-credit courses given recognition — made transcriptable — for graduation purposes. The union does not have any say on who teaches those courses and Brown’s letter said the changes “could pave the way for the university’s administration to shift delivery of courses and programs to the private sector.” In his email, Scheck said decisions about academic programs fall under the university’s academic planning and priorities committee (APPC). “APPC’s due diligence includes encouraging and collecting feedback

from as many TRU members as possible, particularly from TRU individuals who may be affected by any policies. “Only then does APPC conduct its own in-depth analysis, which may result in recommendations to the senate. Senate proceedings, in turn, afford further opportunity for public discourse and debate, prior to voting on any recommended changes,” Scheck wrote.” “The APPC is currently in the midst of this work and is nowhere near completing it (never mind submitting related recommendations to senate) by May 27 — a date noted in the article.” Scheck’s email went on to state anyone with concerns should bring them to the “comprehensive governance process already in place at TRU,” adding any concerns about privatizing academic programs “are unfounded and have no relevance or connection to the academic policy in question.” Requests to speak with Brown were unanswered; however, Scheck told KTW he was confused about the TRUFA letter because the policy will not go to the senate, which decides these matters, until later in the year. Scheck noted the policy review is not secret and can be found on the senate website.

He noted policy reviews are routine matters that must be done regularly. Earlier, TRU administration had told KTW in an email the proposed change “would clarify the definition of an academic credit for students so that they understand when they take a course whether or not the credits will satisfy academic requirements at TRU or at any other university they might apply to in the future.” The email said the university’s student union “has taken the lead in creating the ‘co-curricular record’ in partnership with the university. This project enables TRU to create a transcript that records learning outcomes obtained through student leadership and service outside of the classroom. This provides students with a meaningful, official record of their service to their community — a record that they can attach to resumés or show to prospective employers.” Scheck said he does not know why that would have been the first response from the university on the story, noting he first learned of the TRUFA letter when he saw the article in KTW. TRUFA and the university are engaged in the bargaining process for a new collective agreement.

Westsyde ready for science fair By Karla Karcioglu SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

The second annual Westsyde secondary science fair will be held at the school on Friday May 24, and will be open to the community from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. This year’s science fair is said to be bigger and better than last year’s event. All 162 Grade 11 students will be participating, as well as any other interested Westsyde secondary students. The fair will cover all science disciplines — biology, chemistry, physics and psychology. “It’s 21st-century learning,” said Jenn Filek, a science teacher at Westyde secondary, noting the fair will blend education and teach students that learning stretches across all disciplines. Students will learn various skills in research, writing, presentation, problem solving and innovation. Filek said the science

fair gives the community a rare chance to see some of the amazing things students are doing. Westsyde science teacher Jim Beeds said the fair is a great opportunity for students as it allows them to choose their own projects based on their interests instead of being told what to do by teachers.

Students have the opportunity to win scholarships from the Science Fair Foundation of BC. Last year’s top projects won $4,000 each toward post-secondary eduction. Judges will consist of Westsyde secondary teachers, faculty from Thompson Rivers University and community members.

Pro-Ajax petition collects 1,624 names Kamloops city council will have another Ajax petition to consider when it eventually weighs in on the proposed copper and gold mine. Caroline King has submitted a petition in support of the “responsible development of the Ajax mine.” Posted on change.org, it garnered 1,624 signatures in 27 days — the same amount of time an anti-Ajax petition that collected 2,500 names was posted online.

As with the anti-petition, which was submitted last month, councillors agreed to keep the signatures on file until mine proponents KGHM Ajax file their environmental-application assessment with the provincial government. Once that happens, the city plans to hold an open house and council will debate what stance to take on the controversial project. Both petitions will be includ-

ed in the information packages prepared at that time. Coun. Nelly Dever said the two petitions contain the names of many local businesspeople, developers and her friends. “It’s really important we give them both the same amount of consideration,” she said. An amendment by Coun. Donovan Cavers to refer to King’s petition specifically as a “counter-petition” did not find a seconder and did not proceed.

Council mum (for now) on centre closure Kamloops city council will not yet express its displeasure at the closure of Kamloops’ federal agricultural-research station. Coun. Nancy Bepple asked council to agree to send a letter to Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod and Kamloops’ two Liberal MLAs about the closure — which will see 14 people lose their jobs. “With the closure of the agri-

cultural centre, it’s just another nail in the coffin for the cattle producers in our region,” Bepple said, adding she wanted the letter to ask politicians “what they’re going to be doing to keep our cattle production.” Although the research station is the federal government’s, Bepple said MLAs should also get the letter because agriculture is a provincial responsibility. “At the end of the day, it’s up to the province to make sure we

have a healthy cattle industry,” she said. Coun. Nelly Dever, however, suggested the city hold off on sending a letter because she has been working with McLeod to have someone make a presentation about the centre’s closure to the city’s agricultural committee. That will happen in June, at which point Dever said council will have better information about the closure’s effect on Kamloops and area.

No Best Job in World for Kamloops native

Water levels prompt closure of boat launch

Hospital expansion plan takes another step

Former Kamloops resident Chris Henschel did not land the Best Job in the World, but he did gain a few new skills. Henschel made it to the 28-member short list for the Australia Tourism contest, but that is where his journey ended. Despite not landing the photography gig of a lifetime, Henschel said the self-advertising skills he learned throughout the competition will be invaluable to his career.

Due to high water levels, swift currents and heavy debris in the North and South Thompson rivers, a safety advisory has been issued for all users of the waterways. Boating is not recommended in any area where there is direct current flow. Due to unobservable underwater hazards at the Valleyview boat launch, the boat launch has been closed to public use until further notice.

Royal Inland Hospital administration has issued a request for qualifications, the first step in the tendering process that will see companies expressing interest in the $80-million clinical-services building project. After this step, a shortlist of qualified companies will be identified and invited to submit proposals to design and build the new facility. It’s expected someone will be hired early next year, with construction to start soon after.

LIFEIN THE For love of the game LOOPS By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a rhythm on the court, the constant whack, whack of tennis balls flying over the net and back again. On this day, the Kamloops Tennis Club courts are replete with athletic types working on their backhands, volleys and drop shots — and then the grey-haired set arrives, gym bags are plonked onto the benches, water bottles brought out and sneakers put on. The women, all but one retired and that exception says she’s semi-retired, hit the courts several times a week for some exercise, fun and socializing. They have the one male interloper — Chris Sladden joins them regularly. The only numbers relevant are the scores — and they’re not even all that important. Yes, they’re all in their Golden Years, some farther into them and others, but it’s all about the game. Ethel Middleton, who’s been playing since the 1980s, has been a court

regular since she retired in 2004. Carell Ladner didn’t take it up until four years ago. Her sport was always figure skating but, she notes, “I can’t do that anymore.� Debbie Honey’s reason for taking up tennis is much more practical — she lives across the road from the Front Street site. “Since I have to look at the bubble all winter, I figured I might as well use it.� Clara Leaman, Eman Yeung, Patricia Piletik and Adrienne Holmgren round out the group, each agreeing they head to the tennis centre up to four times a week as much for the laughs as for the exercise they get from their morning games. Sladden is the reason KTW is there on this day, having talked about how much he enjoys their games and competitiveness. They keep him going with their shots and laughing at their jokes. “They’re inspirational,� Sladden says of his tennis buddies, “and crafty.�

TO ALL PARENTS ... By Edgar Guest

Dominic Angelo Ippolito April 29, 1957 – May 13, 2013

“I’ll lend you for a little time A child of Mine� He said, “For you to love while he lives, And mourn when he is dead.

Dominic Ippolito passed away Monday May 13, 2013 at the Royal Inland Hospital surrounded by the love of his family. Dominic was born April 29th, 1957 in Castrolibero, Cosenza, Italy and came to Kamloops with his parents at age 3.

It may be six or seven years, Or twenty-two or three, But will you, till I call him back Take care of him for Me?

Dominic was a devoted and dedicated family man whose world revolved around his love of his wife Evelyn and daughter Angela as well as his immediate and extended family. He was an admirable son, father, husband, brother, uncle and friend. Dominic was predeceased by his father Francesco Ippolito and grandparents Eugenio and Saletta Beltrano. He loved his family deeply and his memories will be lovingly cherished by his family; wife Evelyn, daughter Angela, mother Ida, sister Gina (Victor) Mann and family Maria (Tyler)Cartier, Gena Caputo (Craig), Randy Caputo (Danielle) , brother Pat and family Nikko, Matteo and Josh Ippolito and brother Joey Ippolito (Lindsay), numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends. Family commitment started early for Dominic. As the oldest child he cared for his baby brother Joey while his mother and father worked. His life centered on family, so much so that his ďŹ rst date with Evelyn was to introduce his mother and family. Dominic and Evelyn were married on Dominic’s birthday - April 29th, 1995 and the real joy of their life, Angela, arrived October 20, 1997. Fatherhood deďŹ ned Dominic’s passion for life as he nurtured and supported his wonderful and talented daughter Angela of whom he was so loving and proud. Dominic worked as a summer student at CN Rail and joined the company full time at age 20 until his retirement in 2013. His colleagues at CN fondly nicknamed him “Pitbull’ no doubt because of his relentless pursuit of ideas and tasks. His locker was so full of pictures and mementos of his daughter Angela that one of his colleagues commented, ‘Dominic acted like he was the only person there with a child’. Dominic loved music and sang, played the organ, accordion and drums, and at age 11 started his ďŹ rst band, ‘Summer Fantasy’. He loved motorcycles, cars, gardening and everything organized - a place for everything and everything in its’ place! Fixing things was Dominic’s specialty and pastime – Even if they didn’t need ďŹ xing. Prayers recited by Bishop Munroe and Father Andrew at Sacred Heart Cathedral Tuesday, May 21st at 7:00pm. Mass to celebrate the life of Dominic will be held Wednesday, May 22nd at 11:00 am at the Sacred Heart Cathedral. The family wishes to thank the doctors and nurses in ICU at Royal Inland Hospital for the exceptional care and compassion. In lieu of owers donations to Royal Inland Hospital would be appreciated. Arrangements in care of Schoenings Funeral Home. On-line condolences can be offered at www.schoenings.com

He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, And should his stay be brief, You’ll have his lovely memories As solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay Since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn. I’ve looked the wide world over In my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, Nor think the labour vain, Not hate Me when I come To call and take him back again? I fancied that I heard them say Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joy this child shall bring, The risk of grief we’ll run. We’ll shelter him with tenderness. We’ll love him while we may, And for the happiness we’ve known Forever grateful stay. And should the angels call for him Much sooner than we’d planned, We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes And try to understand.

It’s like riding a bike Bike to Work Week 2013 is coming up quick By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Whether they dislike the look of helmets or worry they’ll look silly trying to put their bike on a bus rack, Kamloops’ reluctant cyclists are James Gordon’s target in the days leading up to this year’s Bike to Work Week. Gordon is compiling a list of common excuses for not commuting on two wheels, and solutions — sometimes offbeat — to all of them. For helmet haters, Gordon points to a Scandinavian company called Hovding. “They’ve made basically an airbag helmet that kind of fits like a scarf around your neck,” he said. “Somehow they’ve come up with a way to design it so that, if you’re falling over, it senses that and initiates the airbag, which flies up in the shape of a bike helmet around your head.” For those who live at a much higher elevation than their place of work, Gordon suggests bicycling downhill to work, then putting the bike on a bus rack and getting home via public transit. “Or drive your car halfway with your bike, park it, ride the rest of the half and then do it that way,” he said. “At least you’re burning less fuel, you’re getting some exercise. “Even if you can’t do the entire distance, it all adds up. It’s all important.” First-time cyclists don’t have to commit to riding every day, Gordon said. “We’re really trying to impress upon people that you

There’s always money in the lemonade stand Organizers of Kamloops Bike to Work Week are helping young entrepreneurs make a stand next week — a lemonade stand — to help cash in on cycling commuters. Would-be lemonade peddlers are asked to contact Trevor Dinn at 250-682-1185 or trevor.dinn@ gmail.com to register.

In return, they’ll get $5 worth of lemonade crystals, 40 paper cups, a green Bike to Work Week T-shirt and a poster to help promote their stand. All vendors have to do is agree to put up their stand any time during Bike to Work Week — and let organizers know where, so they can tell people about it.

Raising money, spreading awareness, and sharing some laughs is all in a nights work for the Boob Tour Comedy Show. The world-class comedians will be rolling back into Kamloops May 25, for a third time thanks to popular demand, and they promise to impress. Lisa Somogyi, Kamloops Boob Tour event co-ordinator, said this hilarious group is sure to make you laugh while using their own brand of humour to raise awareness, as well as some much-needed funds for breast cancer. All proceeds from the show will be donated to cancer causes — all within the Kamloops area. In the past two years, money from the event has gone to The

Royal Inland Hospital Auxiliary who used the funds to purchase wigs, scarves and hats. among other items, for the cancer clinic. Money was also given to the Run for the Cure which raises money each year for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. Finally, the Spirit Warriors dragon-boat team, which is comprised of cancer survivors, also received some money from the past years’ shows. The comedy group hopes to keep the money coming and Kamloops residents laughing through their next event. The Boob tour will begin at 8 p.m. at the Kamloops Convention Centre, and is not recommended

for minors. For more information, go online to theboobtour.com.

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the 2012 DODGE RAM 3500 LONGHORN. This truck is massive and powerful, yet the diesel engine is impressively quiet. The tires, lift, and flares make it an eye-catching ride and the inside is just as nice, with a beautiful interior and Longhorn western-style trim and leather. It also has all the bells and whistles, like heated and cooled seats, a premium Alpine sound system and rear TV screen.

Now it’s your turn! Come test drive it yourself!

“We got cops! Cops! Cops! Cops! Cops!”

Dodge living its life a quarter-mile at a time on the silver screen The Dodge and SRT (street and racing technology) brands have partnered with Universal Pictures on the upcoming film, Fast & Furious 6, opening in theatres on Friday, May 24. The partnership supports Universal’s latest installment in the Fast & Furious franchise with multitier marketing initiatives — including co-branded national, local and multicultural advertising campaigns — events, gaming, social media and merchandising. The SRT brand supplied a 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8 as the vehicle driven by

the film’s hero, Dom Toretto — played by Vin Diesel — in various chase scenes throughout the movie. Toretto also drives a 2012 Dodge Charger SRT8 and a vintage 1969 Dodge Daytona. The production used 10 Charger SRT8 vehicles powered by stock 6.4-litre Hemi V8 engines. Dodge has created three new television commercials to promote Fast & Furious 6, including national, dealer and multicultural spots. All ads feature clips from the movie interspersed with new vehicle footage.

Explorer Sport a worthy top-trim addition wheelstalk.com

T

HE FORD EXPLORER SPORT IS THE first-ever performance version of the Explorer and it joins the lineup for 2013 with added twin-turbo power, sportsuspension handling, bigger brakes and plenty of distinctive designer sporting cues inside and out. This is just the latest in a series of twists and turns that have marked Ford Explorer history since the sport ute debuted as a Ranger pickup-based SUV back in 1990. At the time, it was a gutsy gamble by Ford. The Explorer replaced the Bronco II, a compact derivative of Ford’s original and venerable workhorse. And, since that day more than 20 years ago, the Explorer has evolved through five generations of model changes and milestones. One of the more recent bold steps was the shift from traditional truck-based ladder-and-frame construction to a new unibody version for 2011, a crossover change designed to renew the lineup’s fortunes with reduced weight, tamed ride and handling and significant improvements to fuel economy. The Explorer lineup starts simply enough with a front-wheel drive base model ($29,999) powered by a 290 horse power, 3.5-litre twin independent variable-camshaft timing V6 engine. This modern V6 is a capable engine with a fuel economy rating of 12.2/8.2L/100km (city/hwy). The base Explorer version also comes fairly well-equipped with a standard six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission and a long list of included features, a content level that swells accordingly as one progresses up the trim level ladder to XLT ($36,099), Limited ($41,399) and Sport ($48,299) models. Customers exploring some of those trim levels have other choices to make, as well. They can also opt for an intelligent four-wheel drive system ($3,000) that offers a terrain-management system operated through a console-mounted dial with four driving settings — mud/rut, snow/ gravel/grass, sand and normal modes with the added feature of hill-descent control ontrol that regulates your speed down steep inclines. The Explorer lineup also offers an econo engine choice, a 2.0-litre 240 horse power Turbocharged Direct Injection EcoBoost four-cylinder engine ($1,000) with roughly equivalent power compared to the base V6 (less horsepower but more torque), making its muscle honestly on regular octane fuel and probably saving customers a couple of litres of gas per 100 klicks. The 2.0-litre EcoBoost is rated at 10.4/7.0L/100km (city/highway) and is only available in four-wheel drive configuration. But, tested here, however, the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport comes standard with a third engine choice in the lineup, a more powerful and trim-exclusive 3.5-litre, twin-turbocharged direct-injection EcoBoost V6 engine that puts out 365 horses at 5,500 r.p.m. and 350 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 r.p.m. Ford claims a two-second reduction in zero to 100 km/h times, somewhere in the six-second range, and they have aimed the Explorer Sport squarely at performance SUV rivals like the Dodge Durango R/T and Range Rover Sport. Ford has also done a fair bit of EcoBoost boasting about making that extra power with negligible impact on fuel economy, citing 13.2/8.8L/100km (city/highway) Transport Canada numbers. Well, your mileage may vary, as they say. The EPA rating in the USA is slightly more

down to earth, at 14.7/10.7L/100km (city/highway) and, when I picked up the Explorer Sport, I noted a 14.6L/100km average for the previous driver. After limited testing and only 200 kilometres of admittedly mostly city driving, I refilled the tank with 31.5 litres of fuel for a 15.8L/100km (combined) average. I might need a rematch with more highway miles to investigate Ford’s mileage claims further. But, there are no doubts about the power levels, with the twin-turbo EcoBoost engine pulling the Explorer’s nearly 5,000-pound curb weight up to speed handily. X See EXPLORER A20

New for the 2013 model year, the Explorer Sport, Ford’s first high-performance addition to the Explorer lineup boasts Ecoboost twin-turbo power and a full suite of top-of-the-lineup luxuries.

Explorer Sport comes loaded with features X From A19

Balancing the extra power, the chassis also has been specially reinforced, making Explorer Sport stiffer and improving its handling while bigger brakes make for shorter stopping distances and better performance while towing. Complementing the handling package, the Explorer Sport’s electric power-assisted steering has been tweaked for improved feel. Paddle-shifters have been added to the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The Sport also comes complete with the Intelligent 4WD with terrain-management system. And, not surprising considering its position as the top trim of the Explorer line, the Sport’s all-

inclusive list of other standard features includes dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control, heated front-row seats including a 10-way power driver’s seat with power recline and lumbar, six-way power passenger seat with recline and lumbar, a rear-view camera, SYNC with MyFord Touch driverconnect technology, a 12-speaker Sony premium audio system with HD radio and more items — too many to list here. Upscale options include secondrow bucket seats, a dual head restraint DVD entertainment system, voice-activated navigation, a dual-panel moonroof and Ford’s award-winning, industry-first inflatable rear seatbelts. All of that content is complimented by three-row seating

dressed sharply in charcoal-black leather trim. Customers can choose to add contrasting Sienna inserts that mirror the two-tones seen in leather accessories from design houses Balenciaga and Prada. And, in keeping with that highsociety fashion sense, Explorer Sport separates itself from the herd further with unique steering-wheel stitching, “technical-styled” instrument and door panel appliqués, unique Sport-logo floor mats and illuminated scuff plates. Outside, you’ll find more styling cues to differentiate it from other models in the lineup. The Explorer Sport stands on unique 20-inch painted and machined wheels. The bodywork features

Inside a roomy cabin offers three-row seating appointed in charcoal Black leather trim. A full suite of equipment comes standard at this premium trim level. Other sport cues include steering wheel stitching, “technical-styled” instrument and door panel appliqués, unique Sport-logo floor mats and illuminated scuff plates.

blacked-out headlamp and tail lamp treatments, black roof-rack rails, sideview mirror skullcaps and a special liftgate appliqué. A low-gloss sterling grey mesh grille sets a background for ebony high-gloss bars. The black front lower fascia features a functional opening for additional cooling. And Explorer logo-type in billet-like black on the leading edge of the hood adds a bold identity statement while more subtle Sport and EcoBoost badges at the rear finish the liftgate. The Explorer Sport comes in a limited palette of metallic paint

Lake. The abundance of insects and aquatic invertebrates provide enough food to support big populations of trout. With lots of trout up to 0.7 kilograms (1.5 pounds) and several reports of 1.5 kg to 2 kg (3 lb to 4 lb) trophies, even serious anglers will be interested in this lake. Another explanation p for such large g fish could be the population of shiners. The Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC stocks Pinantan Lake with fish-eating Blackwater rainbow trout to help control the small minnows that were illegally introduced decades ago. Some of these

trout may capitalize on their food source, which would explain their decent sizes. Fly-fishers should take their cues from the abundant hatches of chironomids, mayflies, caddisflies, damselflies and dragonflies as imitations should prove successful. Cast to the shoals and dropoffs at the lake’s edges or around the islands. The deep hole in the middle of the lake is popular with trollers. Use Flatfish, inline spinners, gang trolls and willow leaves, or try small silver spoons or Rapalas to lure one of the Blackwaters. During the cold season, this lake is popular with ice-fishermen. Bring your auger and lawn chair for a day on the ice.

Terwiel cracks Canadian squad Sun Peaks skier Elli Terwiel has been named to the 20132014 Canadian Alpine Ski Team for the third consecutive year. The upcoming season includes a World Cup racing season leading to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia. Terwiel was selected with 22 other Canadians who Alpine Canada describes as having podium potential. “I’ve watched as Elli grew up skiing and racing on the slopes of Sun Peaks,” said Nancy Greene Raine, former

Olympic champion, Canadian senator and Sun Peaks Resort’s director of skiing. “She has faced many challenges and always moved ahead, determined to reach her goals.” Coming off a racing season that included two 17th place and personal-best World Cup race finishes in Flachau, Austria, and in Maribor, Germany, Terwiel is gearing up for another challenging winter. Terwiel’s schedule includes balancing life as an engineering student at the University of Vermont with the travel

and demands of being a national-level athlete. “Elli is excelling both on and off the slopes,” said Raine. “She is a credit to her family, her ski club and to the University of Vermont. “Her generosity as she shares her experiences with younger club athletes is most appreciated and we will all be pulling for Elli as she continues her path to the podium.” Terwiel updates her life as a student and athlete on her blog, which can be read by going online to elliterwiel.blogspot.ca.

Penton: Golf industry promoting shorter game The golf industry is facing a 250-yard par-3. Yeah, that’s hard. Golf is struggling because the number of people playing the game has been on the decline for the past few years and that means — what else? — a decline in revenue. Golf courses sell fewer green fees and memberships; sales of golf balls and clubs go down. Golf resorts attract fewer tourists. Myriad reasons abound for golf falling on hard times but one refrain heard often is that the game takes too long and young people aren’t taking up the game because . . . well, they just don’t have the time in this go-go world we live in. But, rather than just throwing up their hands and saying “there’s no way I can get to this 250-yard par-3 in one shot,” the golf industry is coming up with what it hopes are solutions. One is encouraging a return to the nine-hole round. And, why not? A baseball game takes a little over two hours; a curling game is two hours or so; a night out at a hockey game is maybe three hours, by the time you take travel time into account. A supper at a nice restaurant with that special someone takes around two hours. But, golf is four hours — or more — and that is the obstacle the golf industry is facing as it tries to entice newcomers to the game. Golf Digest magazine is leading the charge on the nine-hole round. “We’re not trying to get everyone who plays 18 holes to play nine holes instead,” said Jerry Tarde, Golf

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW Digest’s chairman and editor in chief. “We’re after the people who aren’t playing because they think golf is a half-day proposition, which it isn’t.” As courses get longer and new equipment is helping golfers hit the ball farther, the sport might seem to be a marathon to non-golfers who might consider taking up the game. That’s why the nine-hole initiative, and the “play-it-forward” approach (where golfers are encouraged to play from forward tees to make the game easier and, ergo, more enjoyable) are giving hope to those in the golf industry that the game will not only survive, but thrive in the future. As for that 250-yard par-3? Bang a driver, make a four and consider it a par. It’s only a game.

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES

pickleball By D. Mark Crown STAFF REPORTER editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Combine tennis and badminton together and what do you get? Pickleball. This sport has long been a staple of high school gym class, but it is also played recreationally in Kamloops by seniors and will be an official event at the BC Seniors Games, which comes to Kamloops in August. “It’s like tennis, but it is played on a badminton court and the net is lowered,� said Ron Telford, Zone 8 event co-ordinator for the Games. “It is played with a whiffle ball and a bat that is shorter than a tennis racket.� The bat looks very similar to a ping-pong paddle, but it is usually plastic and has some holes drilled in it to allow air to move through more easily. At the BC Seniors Games, there will be four age categories. There will also be men’s and women’s singles, doubles and mixed-doubles categories. Each game is played to 11

Kamloops will host the 2013 BC Seniors Games from Aug. 20 to Aug. 24, 2013.The city is expecting more than 3,500 athletes, ages 55 and up, to attend the Games, which will feature 25 events, ranging from cribbage to ice hockey. The BC Seniors Games Society is a volunteer non-profit society funded by the provincial government and in co-operation with the BC Games Society, which event manages the Games. Kamloops can expect an economic impact from the Games of more than $2 million. KTW continues its biweekly feature page, with each page focusing on one of the Games’ events.

points and is scored in the same way as points are earned in tennis. Medals will be awarded to the participants with the best overall record based on a complete round-robin format. If you are considering a racket sport, Telford said you shouldn’t discount pickleball. “If you have played tennis before, you develop into the game quite quickly,� he said. “It is definitely a game for seniors because you don’t have to be as fast. “Tennis requires you to run a lot more,� Telford said. “The exercise part is good and camaraderie, socializing with other people your age and just enjoying the game. “Strategies are quite important,� he said. “You don’t just try and get the ball back; you try to put it where no one is standing.� For more information about pickleball in Kamloops and about the BC Senior Games, contact Telford at 250-376-2427 and visit the Games’ website at bcseniorsgames.org.
