Man accused of strangling his pet cat By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

THE HONEY AND THE BEE Two-year-old (almost three) Luella Harder shows she is very much at home in the garden as she takes an up-close look at a busy bee at work in the newly opened Carmel Public Produce Garden. The free garden (go ahead — pick some food!) is a combined effort of many groups within the city and has been relocated to Tranquille Road and Elm Street from its former home on Victoria Street in downtown Kamloops.

Here’s your chance to help decide councillors’ wages what its deadlines would be. Instead, they left that up to city staff, who have created a timeline that would have the committee reporting back by October. The city will begin recruiting committee members on Wednesday, June 26, according to the report, with an application deadline of July 12. Meetings will run through the summer and early fall. The goal is to have a recommendation on council pay ready by Sept. 30. According to the report, the committee will not only look at council salaries, but also members’ benefits, monthly allowances and a yearly adjustment scale. It will also look at how council pay should be re-examined in the future.

Want to have a say in what councillors should be paid? Get your applications ready. According to a report prepared for today’s (June 25) Kamloops city council meeting, the city will start this week to take applications for a citizen committee on council pay When councillors opted to give themselves a raise of slightly more than $1,000 earlier this month, they also agreed to set up a committee to study their pay further. At the suggestion of Coun. Donovan Cavers, councillors didn’t get involved in deciding how the committee would look or

The committee will have five members, all of whom must reside within city limits. “Representation shall include a diverse spectrum of age, economic status, work experience and activity in different sectors of the community,” according to the report. To apply, interested parties must submit resumes detailing their qualifications and experience, as well as cover letters explaining why they would like to sit on the committee. Kamloops has not always followed the advice of its task forces. The last time a committee reviewed council’s salary, in 2002, councillors balked at what would have been a substantial raise and voted instead to take yearly cost-of-living increases based on the consumer price index.

A Kamloops man is facing criminal charges after his cat was killed in a manner described by one investigator as “horrific.” Steven Seidel, 27, is facing one count of causing unnecessary pain and suffering to an animal and two counts of causing an animal to continue to be in distress. BCSPCA Const. Kent Kokoska said a tip from the public led investigators to a North Kamloops apartment building on March 14. The body of a cat, named Oreo, was found in a dumpster behind the building. Kokoska said Seidel, who lives in the building, was the cat’s owner — which makes the case unique. “Clearly, when you have a family pet that meets its demise at the hands of its caretaker, its last minutes knowing fear, that would be a horrific way to die,” he said. “Incidents, all ranges of neglect and abuse, these things happen. But, to die literally at the hands of your caregiver — it is very rare.” Investigators allege Seidel strangled the cat to death. If convicted, he faces up to two years in jail and $75,000 in fines, as well as a lifetime ban on owning animals. “In either case, we would be hoping the judiciary would be looking at a lifetime ban and counselling,” Kokoska said. Marcie Moriarty, chief prevention and enforcement officer for the BCSPCA, agreed with Kokoska. “It is so disturbing to think that an innocent animal would have suffered and died under such horrifying and unnecessary circumstances,” she said. “We hope the courts will take this case very seriously and that justice will be served for this poor animal.” Charges against Seidel were sworn earlier this month. A date has not yet been set for his first court appearance.

Royal Canadian Legion welcomes you to luncheon By Karla Karcioglu SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Royal Canadian Legion would like to see more support from community members marching through its doors. The Legion is suffering, according to Brenda Thompson, communications director for the Kamloops Legion Branch 52. “People are used to visiting on Remembrance Day, but they forget we are here 365 days a year,” Thompson said. She wants to remind people the building at 425 Lansdowne St. is open to everyone — not just veterans. The Legion hosts many community events throughout the year. Every Friday night, it hosts dances. The Legion also offers services to Kamloops’ many veterans.

The organization offers scholarships to veterans who are attending college and university and is currently helping several young Afghanistan veterans attending Thompson Rivers University. The Legion is always looking for volunteer support and welcomes anyone who is interested in veterans issues — or who simply wants to help. “The welfare of veterans is an important issue for everyone, not just the legion,” Thompson said. On Wednesday, June 26, Kamloops Legion Branch 52 will host its annual Free Veterans Luncheon from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. All Canadian veterans are invited and are welcome to bring a guest. Legion membership is not required. RSVP by calling the Legion at 250-374-1742. Service number is required. Non-veterans are welcome to attend the luncheon, but will be charged for meal.

Parkade possibility down to two sites By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The City of Kamloops will try once again this fall to nail down a location for a third parkade in the downtown core. City real-estate manger David Freeman said staff are looking at a shortlist of possible parkade sites. “We’re still in those discussions and we’re anticipating reporting to council this fall with a preferred location,” he said. Because discussions on the project have so far taken place only at in-camera city council meeting, Freeman would not say how many sites are being looked at or where a new parkade might go. The search for a new location is part of a larger package of parking strategies the city has been working on for about a year. Originally proposed by the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association, they include swapping out current parking meters for digital pay hubs, doubling on-street parking fees and upping the cost of parking tickets. Those changes would bring in an estimated $1.2 million in new

revenue each year. Most of that cash would go into a reserve fund dedicated to downtown parking improvements, which could include the third parkade. Freeman said the parkade would be a “intermediate-term” solution, something the city could accomplish in the next two to five years. When the city last tried to choose a parkade location in 2011, it selected a Lorne Street parking lot directly adjacent to Riverside Park. Had the project gone ahead, it would have added 350 stalls over two levels to the downtown parking stock at a cost of about $8 million. While city council of the day signed off on the plan, opponents of the project managed to gather more than 9,000 valid signatures on a petition as part of the alternative-approval process. That gave the city the choice of either taking the parkade to a referendum or killing the project. It opted for the latter. As for the new pay stations, community safety manager Jon Wilson said the city is still evaluating supplier proposals and won’t have an exact timeline for their installation until the contract is awarded.

Entering the weekend, the City of Kamloops had narrowed the list of wouldbe fire chiefs to five from 28. Corporate services and community safety director David Duckworth said the city will whittle that list down to two before conducting a second round of interviews this week or next week. So far, Duckworth said, the hiring process has run smoothly. “There are some very skilled people out there, so the interviews are going well,” he said. “It’s just a matter of finding, besides the experience and all the other things that you look for, finding the right fit. That’s going to be the biggest challenge, is finding the right fit.” KFR lost its top firefighter this past spring when chief Neill Moroz unexpectedly retired after taking a short leave of absence. The city called former chief Gary McCall out of retirement to oversee the fire service until it can hire a permanent replacement. Duckworth said he hopes to see a new chief in place by the end of the summer.

Court hears of lives ruined by rapist Froese By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

The life of a Kamloops woman was going great until Jack Froese walked into it and brought it crashing down. That’s what a Kamloops courtroom heard on Thursday, June 20, when the 41-year-old woman’s victim-impact statement was read at Froese’s dangerous-offender hearing. Her name is protected by a courtordered publication ban. After years of pursing a successful career within retail, the woman and her partner opened their own business in 2010. The North Shore business, Crystal Blush Adult Boutique, was booming. She loved her job, she was bringing in money and she was enjoying life. She liked working with people and took pride in the service she provided. Froese’s victim described herself as being a happy and fun-loving person who was incredibly independent and liked to socialize. That all ended the night Froese walked into her store. On Nov. 24, 2011, Froese kidnapped the woman and drove her

to the top of a hill in the Batchelor Heights area, where he drugged and sexually assaulted her for hours. Froese was arrested soon after the assault, but his victim’s suffering has continued long past that November night. A hand-written, victim-impact statement was presented in B.C. Supreme Court detailing how the woman who once had everything going for her is now struggling to make it through life. The once eager, outgoing and fun-loving woman can no longer enjoy even the most basic things in life without fear and anxiety taking over. She cannot sit through a movie at the theatre. She cannot go to a restaurant for a meal. She cannot go to the grocery store. She cannot sit in the waiting room at the doctor’s office. She cannot ride alone in an elevator with people she does not know. She cannot walk down even the most familiar street. She can’t go outside at night. She cannot sleep through the night, with the tiniest creeks awakening her in panic. She fears being left alone — even

JACK FROESE: His dangerous-offender hearing winds down.

within the safety of her own home. Froese’s victim has been overcome with a mixture of fear and sadness on a daily basis and no longer finds joy in meeting new people, while pushing many close friends away. She has built barriers between her and the people she loves most and has watched in dismay as her relationship with her long-time boyfriend grows weaker with the stress laid upon it. In an attempt to regain some normalcy within her life, she decided to return to work a short time after the attack, but soon discovered the job she once loved was now a constant reminder of what was lost. The woman who had once greet-

ed customers with a smile and would strive to ensure they received only the best of service now panicked at he sight of a stranger. After two months, she realized she could no longer work in the public sector and was forced to close her beloved store — leaving her with a $70,000 debt. She got rid of her truck — in which the assault took place — immediately after the assault, explaining she could never keep it, knowing what happened in the front seat. She has since been diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and suffers from social anxiety; however, she doesn’t make enough money to seek proper help. She does attend weekly counselling, but the treatment she receives there is not as intensive as what she would receive from a proper psychologist. Froese victim has been left feeling as though she can no longer function within society. This is not the only life Froese has destroyed. His first victim, also from Kamloops, is still reporting major life issues 11 years after she was sexually assaulted by Froese. Just 16 years old at the time of

the attack, court heard how she spent the years following self-medicating with drugs and alcohol. She said she attempted suicide in 2003 and eventually moved to Alberta in hopes of a new life. She took multiple antidepressants in an attempt to overcome a lingering depression and was beginning to recover when Froese contacted her through Facebook. She described immediately breaking down into tears and once again becoming an uncontrollable, shaking, mess. After what she described as two mental breakdowns, each of which landed her in psychiatric wards of local hospitals, she is finally making slow progress. She has a child and a fiancee, but still has intimacy problems. She said the emotional scars are ever-lasting. Froese had served an 18-month sentence for the 2002 assault, with seven months’ probation. When released, Froese breached the terms of his probation and moved to Saskatoon, where he was subsequently charged with raping a hotel maid in 2003. The dangerous-offender hearing continued on Monday, June 24, with Crown submissions set to be made.

Kamloops Kidz Summer Camps! Offered at Valleyview & Pineview Campuses For 3-5 Year Olds & School Age Children

3 to 5 Year Olds Kamloops resident Rose Bourdin has resurrected her campaign to kill pay parking in the emergency department at Royal Inland Hospital. Allen Douglas/KTW

Peeved at ER pay parking By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Two years ago this month, Rose Bourdin took a petition to a Seniors Expo at Northills Shopping Centre and had almost 400 names on it by the end of the day. The issue? Paid parking at the lot designated for the emergency department at Royal Inland Hospital. Bourdin is back again this year with another petition about the same issue —and she’s finding the response even stronger than it was in 2011. The stories haven’t changed. Two years ago, they included tales of people being seen in the department over a longer period of time than they had expected — and leaving to find a fine — to a senior who paid for several hours as she went to have a test, only to learn it had been rescheduled. This year, Bourdin

has heard of parents waiting while their injured child was treated, eventually putting in enough money to top $30 as they waited. She has heard of a woman who needed attention who had no money in her wallet when she got to the ER. Bourdin said she was told the person in line behind the unfortunate woman paid for her parking. “It’s unreal. People are fed up,” Bourdin said. She took her petition to the site of the issue — the parking-payment machine at the RIH ER lot — on Saturday, June 22, for a rally. She also plans on having the document out for more signatures, likely at Walmart. Bourdin said she’s been told by administrators at the hospital that people who have been in the ER and have received a parking ticket can ask the fine be waived. But, Bourdin said,

she doesn’t see why they should need to do so. “Why? You know they’re in there for a reason. They’re sick and they need to be there? Why make them have to go through this, too?” The money collected in fines goes to Imperial Parking, the service provider, said Jon Acorn, manager of protection and parking services for the Interior Health Authority. He said that is a parking-services industry standard. Because it is a contracted service, Acorn said he cannot discuss what kind of money the fines generate. Acorn said parking has always been a problem at RIH, something he expects will be alleviated when the new services/parkade building is in place at the front of the hospital. He acknowledged even having a parking fee at the lot next to the ER doesn’t stop anyone from parking there, noting in the past, when

it was a free lot, even hospital staff would use it sometimes, as would people who expected to be at the hospital for many hours. It would violate privacy laws to have a guard on the lot asking if potential customers were using it to go to the ER, Acorn noted, although the hope is people realize it is next to the emergency area for a reason. Acorn said the hospital has been “extremely lenient” in voiding fines for anyone who asks — even if they were in another area of the hospital.

KGHM International Ajax Project

Guyana to gain from city brain By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

When Greg Fry started telling friends he was off to South America to spend six months volunteering, most people assumed he’d be building schools. The reality is a little different. “I have an office job, oddly enough,” Fry, a mortgage broker at Invis, told KTW a few days before he hopped a plane out of the country. For the next six months, Fry will be working behind a desk in Georgetown, Guyana, putting his skills in financial planning to work on behalf of a host of nonprofit organizations. He left Kamloops on Sunday, June 23, and won’t return north of the equator until December. Fry will officially work for

CUSO International, a volunteer organization that connects skilled professionals with charitable and community organizations around the globe. It’s those smaller organizations, the ones based in South America and the Caribbean, that Fry will be working with. “I’m trying to help out some of their partners who don’t have say the financial acumen to do some of their projects,” he said. Fry spent two years researching volunteer opportunities before settling on CUSO, noting his goal was always to give back in a way that made use of his own skills and education. “It’s not like whoever signs up will go build a school,” he said. “This is something altogether different. “This is specific jobs, specific

skills they’re looking for. “The key component is you should be leaving the skill behind, you should be training people so they don’t have to keep replacing you. That’s not helping people in any way.” While he has travelled to South America before, Fry said Guayana — which sits on Brazil’s northern border and has a population of less than 800,000 — is off the beaten path for the average traveller. “It’s exciting, but it’s also nerve-wracking a bit,” he said. Fry said his reasons for volunteering are pretty simple — he has skills he can offer others and a lot of good fortune. “I have the ability to take six months off and do something,” he said. “So, basically, I couldn’t find a reason not to go.”

What is Critical Illness Insurance? Simply put, it is insurance that pays out a lump sum, tax-free payment if you are diagnosed with a Critical Illness (25 critical illnesses covered, the major ones being cancer, heart attack or stroke). Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with a critical illness? Could they have benefited from a lump sum payment of $10,000 up to $2,000,000, so they could have devoted 100% of their energies to their recovery, without worrying about the financial impacts of the illness? A critical illness can happen to anyone at any time and can mean major changes to your lifestyle and serious financial challenges, if you are not prepared. Could this happen to you? Call me today for a quote.

Trying to keep our kids safe does not equal ‘victim-blaming’

I

N THE MINDS OF SOME, advising teenage girls to be careful in this sometimes-dangerous world is akin to blaming them if they become a victim of a crime or accident. Such a belief is nonsense and casts criticism on common-sense actions that should be taken by parents of all teens — boys and girls alike. On the weekend of June 15/16, 1,000 or so young people gathered at the Tree Flats site in Barnhartvale to take part in a massive bush party to celebrate the end of the school year. A 17-year-old girl told police she became separated from her friends in the huge crowd and was subsequently sexually assaulted by a male youth. Such an attack is abhorrent and shocking and was met with many comments from teens, parents, police and Kamloops-Thompson school district officials. Among those comments were some from parents and the school district that cautioned youth against putting themselves in situations that may harm them. To me, to most parents I know, to most rational-thinking people I know, such advice is warranted and necessary. To letter writer Caitlin Dick and to the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre, such advice constitutes victim-blaming. In a press release, the counselling centre said questioning how parents can keep their children safe “implies that girls can do something to stop rape and that if we give them a list of safety rules, they are in charge of preventing a sexualized assault.” In her letter to KTW (which can be read on the following page), Dick writes “. . . instead of telling our daughters how not to get raped, tell our sons not to rape.” If only such an absurd statement could be accomplished so easily. “Tell our sons not to rape.” That goes without saying. As the father of a son and daughter,

the need to treat women with respect is a lesson imparted constantly. I am sure fathers of sons across Canada are busy giving similar daily advice. Yet defective humans like Jack Froese continue to plague our society.

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS We can tell our sons not to rape until we are hoarse. We can, as Dick argues, “critically evaluate the societal influences that lead young boys to rape” and we will still have young boys raping their way to manhood. We will still face future Jack Froeses. Karl deBruijn, assistant superintendent with the Kamloops-Thompson school district, said all students receive frequent lessons and reminders about drinking and driving, using drugs and putting themselves into situations that could be harmful to them. As a parent, I am glad this is being done. When deBruijn refers to partying teens at a massive bush party as “prey,” he is correct. “They’re drinking, they’re vulnerable and they aren’t paying attention,” is how deBruijn described the party at which a young girl had her life irrevocably altered. Yes, the blame belongs to the cretin who attacked her, but it is patently ridiculous for Dick and the Kamloops Sexual Assault Counselling Centre to dismiss as “victim-blaming” advice that

could protect our youth. Remember, the sexual assault is only the latest in a list of bad things to happen at such parties. Last year, a similarly large bush party at the same site saw a teenage girl run down by a vehicle and suffer a broken spleen, while another girl had her head cracked open by a liquor bottle. And we as parents are not supposed to persuade our kids that such gatherings just might be dangerous? This world can be ugly at times, which is why we teach our kids how to cross the street safely, whom to call if they get lost, how not to be lured by a stranger and where not to walk after dark. It’s common sense — life is a series of decisions made based on the odds of something bad happening, which is why one would counsel against walking through Riverside Park at night, why kids were kept on a short leash during Clifford Olson’s reign of terror in the early 1980s and why it was wise to avoid certain Vancouver nightclubs during the gangland wars of the 1990s. No, it wouldn’t be your fault if you were mugged in the park at two in the morning, if your child was slain or if a bullet meant for Bindy Johal instead found you. But, you sure as hell had choices to minimize these possibilities. In her letter, Dick writes: “Rape happens when someone decides to rape. It happens when women (and men) are sober, home alone, at work or even drunk at a bush party.” That may be true, but the fact is, the odds of it and other mayhem happening in a frenzied atmosphere filled with teenagers and alcohol and drugs is a lot more likely. This is why talking to your kids about the dangers inherent in attending such gatherings is the prudent thing to do and has nothing whatsoever to do with victim-blaming. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

You can be forgiven if you read today’s edition of Kamloops This Week and experience a sense of deja vu. Included in today’s paper and online at kamloopsthisweek.com is a story about the City of Kamloops soliciting applications from residents wishing to be part of a new citizen committee on council pay. Five people will be chosen to form the committee, which will eye the end of September as the timeline for when it will recommend how council should be paid. Or, should we say, how much and how often council will get raises from the taxpayer. If this sounds familiar, consider the city went through the same exercise in 2002. Back then, a committee came back with recommendations that council receive hefty raises. The election representatives of the day essentially tossed aside the suggestion and voted instead to take yearly cost-of-living increases based on the consumer price index. When today’s council voted 5-4 earlier this month to give councillors a raise, the decision came after Coun. Nancy Bepple raised the issue. The ensuing discussion included calls for a committee to determine council pay hikes in the future. Yet there has been a formula to determine council pay hikes for 11 years — and it’s tied to the consumer price index. When the five people who are chosen ultimately deliver their recommendation this fall, it will be very interesting to see how each city councillor responds — especially if the recommendation includes substantial wage increases and the introduction of benefits. Based on how council voted in the recent pay-increase issue, it stands to reason at least five will welcome more pay. However, the report will be issued one year before the next election and many voters have vowed to not vote for those councillors who sought and received more money. Perhaps sticking with the consumer price index would have been preferable, politics-wise.

Re: Letter: An unfriendly shopping centre in a friendly city: “I’m surprised this isn’t hurting the downtown merchants. “After getting an Impark ticket when I ran into the post office (a lot previously without fees ), I decided I didn’t need to do my business where they charge for parking. “I hope enough people stay away from these shopping areas that the merchants speak up for their customers. “We also shouldn’t be paying parking fees at our hospital and emergency department. “We already pay taxes and this is just gouging.” — posted by Sean Bloddell

Get the scoop on our park poopers Editor: I would like to suggest a change to dog licensing in Kamloops. When a licence is purchased, a supply of numbered plastic bags should be issued. Why? I’ve noticed some people bag their dog’s poop and leave it beside the trail, but then either change their route or forget to come back and pick it up. With numbered bags, other walkers could report the number to city staff, who could call and remind dog owners of the plastic pollution they added to our parks. (Yes, this message is intended as a humorous poke at some people’s habits.) Tom Rankin Kamloops

government’s interpretation of what is “peaceful.” If the teens of Kamloops continue committing violent acts upon fellow revelers, defiling party sites like Tree Flats, it will be inevitable the law will shut the site down. In ancient times, graduation was also a rite of passage, signifying an event in a person’s life indicative of a transition from one stage to another — as from adolescence to adulthood. Much consideration must be given to the matter when parents release their precious children into the wilderness, where they may become prey to adolescent behaviour. After careful thought, society must ensure the safety of the revelers without infringing on their rights. In addition, if the legal authorities continue to ignore the growing list of violent acts committed at these bush parties, they should reconsider their interpretation of “lawful assembly.” The word “peace” is a common thread in all the laws that regulate street protest. These laws either give the police powers to preserve the “peace” at their discretion or ignore the peaceful nature of the protest for other, arguably higher goals. It’s time society gets its priorities right. Lennox Rawn Kamloops

Society needs to focus on telling our sons not to rape Editor: This is what rape culture looks like. Sexual assault and violence is an ingrained part of our culture. In one year in Canada, 427,000 women over the age of 15 reported being sexually assaulted. This number is only the 10 per cent of all cases that are even reported to the police. And why would they report? Women are taught that preventing being sexually assaulted is their responsibility. Victim-blaming, by suggesting the victim may have put herself in danger in any way, is another symptom of how pervasive

KAMLOOPS THIS WEEK 1988

Editor: When 2,000 peaceful protesters gather to object to important social matters, authorities label them hooligans and a danger to public peace. When thousands of drunken teens gather to practise the ritual of graduation debauchery, the authorities and society in general seem to accept it as part of an age-old tradition. Indeed, today’s leisurely shenanigans are just the latest incarnation of cultural customs quite old. Tree Flats on the Scuitto Lake Forest Service Road in Barnhartvale has become like the temple in Luxor, Egypt, where ancient Egyptians had an annual festival of drunkenness in which participants got wasted, had gratuitous sex and awoke the next day to blaring music. Both the protester and the party reveler have the right to freedom of peaceful assembly under Section 2 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Unfortunately, there is no such thing as absolute freedom of assembly in Canada. The Charter itself limits it by guaranteeing only “peaceful” assembly. That’s why the government can restrict certain kinds of assembly it considers not peaceful. Such restrictions do not infringe on the Charter’s freedom of assembly unless the courts disagree with the

rape culture has become. This is why, then, I find myself disappointed with the way Kamloops This Week chose to report on this horrific event. Instead of choosing to critically evaluate the societal influences that lead young boys to rape, the June 20 article (‘Teen sexually assaulted at bush party’) focuses on cautioning our youth against “putting themselves into situations that may be harmful to them.” The fact of the matter is this: Rape happens when someone decides to rape. It happens when women (and men) are sober, home alone, at work and even drunk at a bush party. It is the culture that allows rapists to

shift any responsibility away from themselves and onto the victim that perpetuates this systematic violence — and media coverage of events like this have a large part to play in how this culture is constructed. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank this young woman for her bravery in coming forward to the police. And to Kamloops This Week, I implore you, as a media source with influence over culture, instead of telling our daughters how not to get raped, tell our sons not to rape.

A self-described Kamloops star gazer might soon see her dream of exploring outer space realized. The only catch? She won’t be returning. Raine Light is 29 years old, she is not an astronaut and she has never worked for the Canadian Space Agency. In fact, her only space travel-related education is a couple of astronomy courses she took in university. Yet Light is one of the 180,000 competing for a chance to not only visit the Red Planet, but to live and eventually die there. Mars One is a not-forprofit organization cofounded by an entrepreneur and a scientist from the Netherlands.

The goal of Mars One is to establish a settlement on Mars by taking some of the world’s top technologies and using them to cultivate food, habitats and other things needed to allow future colonization of Mars. If selected, Light will be one of the first people to inhabit the planet. To her, the competition is about much more than bragging rights, it is a way to expand mankind’s knowledge in a major way and open up new possibilities that otherwise might take years to develop. “We will be preparing it for future colonization, planting vegetation and developing Mars into something that will be habitable for future generations,” Light said. Before she blasts off, Light must prove she is one of the top 20 candidates.

The application process involves multiple steps, the first being the video application, viewable on the Mars One Project’s website at mars-one.com. Like typical astronauts, Mars One contenders are expected to be in good health, free of any disease and between five-foot-one and six-foot-two in height. One of the final levels of the weeding-out process includes what has been described as a Survivor-like reality television show in which viewers can choose who they want to see sent into space. Light suspects most viewer choices will be based on looks and character rather than ability, but she hopes they will use some discretion regarding usable skills, such as medical and engineering abilities.

Light already has 134,031 “likes” on her application portfolio. If she is ultimately chosen to head to Mars, she will begin training next year. All chosen applicants will be participating full time in an extensive training program that will act as their full-time, paid job. Those going to Mars will have limited contact with Earth. To train for the mission, astronauts will be immersed in a Mars simulation experience,

where they will take care of their water supply and keep life-support systems operating. They will also cultivate their own food, while communication with the outside world will be artificially delayed by 20 minutes. Light said that while she knows she will miss friends and family, she feels she would will bond with the other group members, making the move easier emotionally. The chosen teams are not expected to be fully trained and

prepared to leave for Mars until 2023, at which point not all group members will go. Instead, just a few select groups will be sent to Mars every two years. Light acknowledges that 10 years is a long time, noting a lot can happen between now and then. However, the only thing that could keep her on Earth, she said, is if she happens to get married and have a family. Light understands people are programmed

to fear what they do not understand and she has seen it among her own friends. “When I first told them about it, they thought I was crazy,” she said. “They are still a little skeptical, but they support me.” If chosen for the Mars trip, Light said she will spend her last years on Earth seeing as much of it as she can. She also wants to get her pilot’s license and write a book. But, mostly, she wants to enjoy simple things, like butterflies in

the garden and the feeling of wind on her face, things she will never again get to experience. The four levels of the application process, including the reality-show portion, are expected to be completed by next year. Participants will begin training immediately.

Choosing the right daycare for peace of mind Caregiving for the youngest members of society, babies and toddlers, is growing in scope and possibilities. In addition to a safe and nurturing environment, parents looking for daycare services may want much more for their child’s first crucial years of development. Once they decide what they want from a daycare, parents should shop around for the right place for their child. One of the best ways to find a daycare is by a referral from someone who is satisfied with their daycare provider. If that’s not possible, the community health unit may have lists of local daycare providers. Daycares can be public or privately owned. Parents should visit a daycare in person to see the facilities,

and ask about licences, daily routines, programs and activities for the children, snacks and meals, discipline and rewards policies, and how first aid and emergencies are handled. Is a trial period possible? Other parents who use a daycare can provide good feedback about the quality of services offered. If the daycare discourages such discussions between parents, this is a good sign to look elsewhere. Communication is an essential ingredient to monitoring the needs of the child. There should also be a good communications policy between parents and the child care provider.

future career goals, will help parents decide if they’ve found a partner in their child’s education. The ratio of children per caregiver is also important to determine the level of supervision. Other questions could centre on outdoor activities, educational activities, and social interaction between younger and older children.

Natural gas plans worth $20 billion? By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A B.C. Liberal election victory has the natural-gas industry smiling. Greg Staple, director of marketing and business development at Spectra Energy, told the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce he’s expecting the Liberals to go “pedal to the metal� on

its liquid natural-gas plans following their May election win. Staple was at a chamber luncheon on Friday, June 21, to paint a rosy picture of the effects the naturalgas industry will have on the province, should the government’s plans to export shale gas to the Asian market pay off. “It’s the future of the gas business in this

province,� he said. Staple said the gas industry is headed into a “major renaissance,� with nearly a dozen major gas projects in the planning stages, each with billion-dollar price tags. He said estimates the industry could be worth $20 billion provincially and create 800 new jobs may also be on the conservative side.

“I don’t think anyone’s got it figured out yet, the number of skilled trades and services and resources we’ll need to get this done,� Staple said, suggesting northern B.C.’s shale-gas deposits could become the next Fort McMurray. Spectra has a proposal in the works to build a new 850-kilometre pipeline of its own between Prince

Rupert and the northeastern gas fields. The pipe would range from 36 to 48 inches in diameter, which Staple said is an unusually large size for such a line. That project alone could be worth $10 to $12 billion, he said. By comparison, Kinder Morgan and Enbridge are both planning to use 36-inch pipes for their proposed

oil lines across B.C. If customers in Asia do agree to buy B.C. gas, Staple said Kamloops does stand to benefit, even though it’s outside of the deposits, because’ its situated on major transportation routes. That could make the city more attractive as a base of operations for companies that provide support services to the gas industry.

If you see this, do not touch it! Within the device is a capsule that contains radioactive material. Prior to being stolen, the device was considered tamperproof; however, if the device has become damaged or someone were to tamper with it, it could pose a serious risk to themselves and others. The device uses substances called americium and caesium, which emit gamma radiation and could result in burns to the skin. The device should have a warning sticker and the box that states it is radioactive. Anyone who finds the Troxler portable gauge is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000 and to not handle the device.

Kamloops RCMP are looking for a unique stolen item that could pose a public risk if mishandled. On the morning of Sunday, June 16, Mounties received a report that a brown 2011 Toyota Tacoma had been stolen sometime overnight from a residence on Pleasant Street in south Kamloops. Later that day, the vehicle was found in the downtown area and the registered owner went to get the truck. It was immediately noted that among items stolen from the truck was a Troxler portable gauge, model 3440. The device is used in geotechnical engineering to measure the density of asphalt, soil, aggregate or concrete.

Mounties receive photos taken at bush party By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Photographs taken at a large graduation party in Barnhartvale on the weekend of June 15/16 have been given to Kamloops RCMP. Cpl. Cheryl Bush said Mounties are pleased with the co-operation being given them by the community after a 17-yearold girl reported she had been at the bush party and was sexually assaulted there.

Bush implored the estimated 1,000 who were in the large field area between Barnhartvale and Campbell Creek to not post through social media anything they might have captured on their cellphones that would further victimize the victim. Bush said investigators are going through the photographs to determine if any provide evidence. She added police will consider charges if anyone posts anything through social media that shows the attack.

Anyone with information, photographs or videos from the party is asked to call the Kamloops Rural RCMP detachment at 250314-1800. A similar party last year saw a female student suffer a broken pelvis when run down by a vehicle, while another teenage girl was attacked with a liquor bottle, suffering lacerations to her head. In the past 18 months, a firearm was brandished at a bush party, a wildfire was sparked at another bash and a man died after he was accidentally shot during a

stag party and the vehicle racing him to hospital crashed. Karl deBruijn, an assistant superintendent with the Kamloops-Thompson school district, said all students receive frequent lessons and reminders about drinking and driving, using drugs and putting themselves into situations that could be harmful to them. Graduating students in particular are the focus of these messages, deBruijn said. “It’s almost socially acceptable at grad time to put all this aside.

“I don’t know why we would think they’re immune to danger this one time of the year.” Beyond that, there is little the school district can do, he said, because parties like these happen outside of school hours. “You would hope parents would exercise authority,” deBruijn said, acknowledging that, as teens get older, it’s more difficult to convince them to stay home. “But, they’re prey up there. They’re drinking, they’re vulnerable and they aren’t paying attention.”

City to repair lane in which trustee was hurt By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The hole in the laneway where KamloopsThompson board of education chairwoman Denise Harper fell and seriously injured herself will be fixed once the rainy weather subsides Kristen Meersman, the city’s capital-projects manager, said some preliminary work was done after the board-office staff advised the city of Harper’s accident, with left her with broken bones in her face, a concussion, bumps and bruises. She fell as she was returning to her car on the evening of June 7 after a school function. Meersman said there is no regular maintenance plan for laneways in the city, noting repairs are done when complaints are received. The laneway behind the Ninth Avenue office in South Kamloops has had four complaints registered since 2008, Meersman said, noting one a year for a laneway is not unusual. Damp, cool weather is not helpful when doing these kinds of patches and repairs, she said, but as soon as the weather clears, workers will be out. Harper has indicated she won’t sue the city, even though her injuries came on city-owned property. Meersman said not following a regular maintenance schedule would not necessarily leave the city open to liability, explaining the defence would be to point to the level of service traditionally given to lanes. Harper has been unable to do any of her boardrelated work since the accident, but hopes to be back on the job by the July 8 board meeting. Harper, recovering at her home in Chase, said a maxillary sinus bone, located below the eye socket, and a lateral orbital bone located just above it broke when she tripped and fell in the alley behind the school-district office. Harper said she and her grandson had been attending the district elementary-schools strings performance and were walking to her car in the dusk when she fell after tripping on a pothole. She said she was unconscious for about 30 seconds, but was taken to the hospital by ambulance for treatment of the fractures, concussion, a black eye and bumps and bruises. “I really do hope it gets fixed for the sake of employees who have to walk there,” she said. “And I really don’t know what happened. “I was standing and then I was flying through the air thinking I’m not going to stop,” she said with a laugh.

Red Deer suspects collared in Kamloops Alberta trio facing slew of charges — including one count of murder Three people arrested in Kamloops in connection with robberies in Red Deer related to online Internet escort services have been returned to the central-Alberta city. One of those arrested is now facing a separate first-degree murder charge. The trio faces a combined 48 other charges. They were arrested in a Kamloops hotel on June 13. Lindsey Rae Mazzei, 30, of Red Deer, has been charged with numerous offences. Florian Edward Poitra, 31, of no fixed address, also faces a raft of charges. Mark William Bitterman, 30, of no fixed address, faces numerous charges. Bitterman is also charged separately with first-degree murder in the death of 43-year-old Curtis Leroy Rangen of Red Deer. Rangen’s body was found in a Red Deer home on May 3.

All three face charges of robbery with a firearm, extortion with a firearm, kidnapping with a firearm, forcible confinement, uttering threats, theft over $5,000, unauthorized possession of a firearm, use of an imitation firearm in the commission of an indictable offence and use of a firearm while committing an indictable offence. Police allege that in two instances, men contacted a female from an online website and set up a location and time to meet. Once the men arrived at the meeting place, two male suspects brandishing a knife or firearm would steal money, credit cards and, in one instance, a vehicle from the victims. Police said during one of those robberies, a male was held against his will for an extended period of time before escaping capture and contacting police.

Thrive Festival focuses on flooding On its closing night on Sunday, June 23, the Kamloops Thrive Festival collected non-perishable food items, supplies and cash donations to help those impacted by the flooding in Alberta. The impact of Alberta’s floods reached as far as the weekend festi-

val in Kamloops, with numerous artists, friends and families feeling firsthand the effects of the disaster. The festival’s first call came in from photographer Paul Zizka in Banff, who decided to stay home to help with sandbagging and community support.

Dr. Bruce Tucker is pleased to welcome

Dr. Marcio Barros to his dental practice. Dr.Barros was born in Sao Paulo, Brasil, the middle child of three brothers. His passion for dentistry began at an early age, when he spent much of his learning about the profession from his mother’s dental practice. It was there that he began to learn the traits of compassion, dedication and self discipline which would aid him in his own efforts to become a dentist.

Upon graduation from the University of San Paulo in 1991, Dr. Barros completed a three year orthodontic programme. In 2006 he moved to Canada to continue his studies and in 2011 completed the International Dental Degree Completion Programme at the University of British Columbia. Dr. Barros recently graduated from UBC with a Doctorate in Dental Medicine. Although he worked as an orthodontic specialist for over 15 years, he was grateful for the additional training he received UBC’s state-of –the-art clinic. Dr. Barros will continue to practice orthodontics as well as general dentistry in his new office in Kamloops.

Fire training exercise east of Sun Rivers A number of local and regional agencies will take part in a mock interface fire scenario on Wednesday, June 26, near the Spiyu7ullucw Ranch east of Sun Rivers. Seven groups, including the Tk’emlups Indian Band, City of Kamloops, Kamloops Fire Rescue and Thompson-Nicola Regional District, will take part in the training exercise. The scenario will be based on a fake interface wildfire near the ranch and will involve the actual deployment of structural and wildland firefighters, RCMP and emergency social services to simulate the incident. Residents in the area of the East Shuswap Road location are not required to evacuate, but are welcome to participate and learn how to prepare for a real emergency. According to Nacoma George, communications and events co-ordinator for the Tk’emlups Indian Band, objectives of the training exercise are: • To continue to build interagency relationships and demonstrate the importance of preparedness; • To initiate Tk’emlups’ emergency preparedness plan in partnership with interagency involvement; • To discuss evacuation of people and livestock during an event and what must be done to obtain authority; • To review the procedure for implementing the evacuation; • To gain knowledge of how the Wildfire Management Branch operates and to improve the working relationships between first nations, the fire centre, municipal governments, regional districts and the general public. For more information about the training exercise, call Rochelle Leonard at 250-314-1570.

Two weekend wins on the road have boosted the Kamloops Heat women’s chances of reaching the Pacific Coast Soccer League Premier Division playoffs. “It was an awesome weekend for us in pursuing a playoff spot,” Heat head coach Kelly Shantz said. “We won two road games in convincing

fashion against good teams to put us right back in the mix. I am really proud of the team. They are playing very enjoyable soccer and working hard as a team.” Kamloops doubled TSS Academy 4-2 at the Minoru Oval in Richmond on Sunday, June 23, a day after thumping the North Shore Girls Soccer Club Eagles 5-1 at Capilano University in North Vancouver.

Scoring for Kamloops on the weekend were Taylor Miller, Heather Lloyd, Marlie Rittinger, Katie Sparrow, Courtney Daly, Bronwyn Crawford, Sarah Seebach and Kelsey Martin (2). Taylor Shantz was between the pipes for the Heat. Kamloops sits third in the league with a 5-3-5 record heading into their next match, a tilt with Okanagan FC of Kelowna at Hillside

Stadium on July 3. Game time is 7 p.m. Kamloops’ men were given three points after Estrella De Chile forfeited a match that was meant to be held in the River City on Saturday, June 22. The Heat are second in the men’s Premier Division with a 7-2-1 record. Kamloops is hosting Khalsa Sporting Club of Coquitlam at Hillside on Saturday, June 29. Game time is 2 p.m.

Venom sneak into TOJLL playoffs The Kamloops Venom left it to the last period of the regular season to claim a spot in the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League playoffs. Down 8-7 to the South Okanagan Flames after two periods of play in Penticton on Sunday,

June 23, the Venom scored four unanswered goals in the third frame to win 11-8 and clinch the fourth and final TOJLL post-season berth. The loss left South Okanagan on the outside of the playoffs looking in, with Kamloops, Vernon, Armstrong and

Kelowna set to duel for the championship. Leading the way for the Venom on Sunday was Blaine Boomer, who tallied two goals and four points. Rob Peterson chipped in with a goal and four helpers. Rounding out the Venom scoring was

Chris Case, with two goals and three points; Kyle Pauwels and Brady Jorgensen, each of whom scored twice; Kyle Mclellan, with a goal and a helper; Riley Polacik, who racked up a goal and an assist; and Brett DeFrias, Marc DuMont, Riley Peterson, and Riley Wilson-

Springing into art

Karla Pearce art students — from left, Pamala Bourgeois, Linda Vandyke, Reg Pointer, Kathy Rollheiser, Helene St. Belle, Gudrun Meyer and Al Kenord — show off their floral works. The painting pictured on Page B1 was created by Pearce.

F

you don’t finish the painting before the flower changes. Remember — nature is evolving and changing all the time and so are we. Each piece we do is affected by the light, our moods and the subject matter. • Be kind to yourself and have fun: Often, we can be too hard on ourselves in what we think we can achieve. Remember

OR MANY ARTISTS, THE SPRING CAN BE A VERY BUSY AND CREATIVE TIME. I enjoy gardening. To me, planting flowers is like creating a living piece of art. I enjoy all kinds of flowers and, with a little planning, you can set up your garden to bloom all spring and summer long. Like an evolving pallet, the colours and smells change from day to day and month to month. As an artist, I can not help myself and usually get lured into painting my own flowers. They are like my little garden babies — I planted them, often from seed or bulb, watered and nurtured them and, when they bloom, I just want to capture that little moment in their life. Here are some tips to create the perfect floral painting. • Decide what you want to say: Look at the flower

Karla Pearce The Creative EDGE and understand what draws you in. Is it the shape? The colour? Or, perhaps, it’s a collection of flowers that create a pattern that have caught your eye. Whatever the reason, let the flower speak to you so you can share its message with your viewers. • Create a simple composition: I like doing close ups of flowers. It transforms them from the realm of the small to the world of big paintings. I have seen many successful paintings of gardens, but I find them a lot of work to paint. Why paint 50 flowers when you can paint three — or one? • Decide on a colour scheme and stick to it: Too many

colours wreck a painting. Have a look at a colour wheel or colour chart and find colour combinations that complement and contrast each other. Some good combinations are green and magenta, blue and orange and violet and yellow. I’ve been attracted to violet and green lately. Decide on your dominant colours and allow your painting to evolve based on your colour choices. • Allow the paint to flow: It doesn’t matter if you are using watercolour or acrylic; don’t be afraid to pour the paint on. Artists do not copy life — we interpret it. Follow all those wonderful shapes and organic curves and don’t worry about getting it perfect. We have cameras for that. • Be open to possibilities: Don’t like your first painting? Do another one. Ideally, it’s nice to paint flowers from life, but take a quick digital photo of your flower just in case

that whatever you do or create is perfect because it comes from you. Take a moment and enjoy that special time in your garden. Karla Pearce is owner of the Karla Pearce Art Gallery, 607 Victoria St. For more information, go online to karlapearcegallery.com.

taking Nissan is on the road to subcompact success with the 2014 Versa Note STORY/B8

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the new 2014 JEEP GRAND CHEROKEE. What a luxury Jeep! It had alot of cool features that caught my eye. The dashboard display was large, the back-up camera made reversing painless and the bluetooth was easy to set-up! The double sunroof let in lots of light and there is a huge amount of storage space. I loved the option of heated or cooled seats in the front & back rows. The door unlocked the moment I came near with the key in my hand! Very smooth and fun to drive!

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

Although it is marginally shorter than the outgoing Versa Hatchback, the 2014 Versa Note is actually bigger inside, with seating for five adults.

HITTING A HIGHER NOTE Nissan’s latest subcompact is an instant contender By Jim Robinson METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

A

would allow. Nissan says the Xtronic CVT in the Versa Note still connects the two pulleys with a metallic belt by changing their diameter under hydraulic pressure. However, this is aided by an integrated auxiliary gearbox using planetary gearing. The result is a transmission ratio of 7.3:1 that is broader than those of conventional CVTs and atypical of sevenspeed automatic transmissions as well. On the wonderful highways and byways around San Diego, where the press launch was staged, the CVT was surprisingly sharp on city streets. Joining the freeway, it was adequate but really not bad when you consider torque is just 107 pound-feet. Much credit is due to a weight reduction of 107 kilograms over the outgoing Versa Hatch. A lot of work went into noise reduction like acoustic glass, underbody shielding of the gas tank and double rubber baffles on the doors. It is far better when the first Versa I drove in 2006 which

remains the noisiest car I have ever encountered. But, with the rear seats folded flat, you have basically a 606-litre cavern behind you that does amplify road noise on more granular pavement abetted by the harder low rolling resistance tires on the CVT version I drove. Suspension is MacPherson struts with a stabilizer bar at the front and twist beam with stabilizer bar at the rear. Braking is by power-assisted front disc/rear drum brakes with standard anti-lock braking system (ABS) with electronic brake force distribution (EBD) and brake assist. The Versa Note rides on standard 15-inch steel wheels with full wheel covers and 185/65HR15 all-season tires, while 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels with 195/55HR16 allseason tires are optional. Low-rolling resistance tires are standard on CVT-equipped models. It will be offered in three model trims levels — 1.6 S manual/CVT, 1.6 SV manual/ CVT and 1.6 SL manual/CVT. X See PLENTY B9

FFORDABILITY AND TONS OF SPACE ARE THE TWO MUSTHAVES FOR SUBCOMPACT BUYERS — AND NISSAN BELIEVES IT HAS HIT THAT DOUBLE SWEET SPOT WITH THE 2014 VERSA NOTE. The Versa Note, at 606 litres (21.4 cu ft), has the largest cargo area in the segment, while Nissan also claims it has the best fuel economy at 5.5L/100 km combined. In terms of price, the Versa Note starts at $13,348. The most you can spend is $19,018 and that includes an industryfirst 360-degree parking system with four external cameras. There is one engine — a 1.6-litre twincam inline fourcylinder with dual fuel injection and Twin CVTC (continuously variable timing control) producing 109 horses and 107 poundfeet of torque. All versions are equipped with a standard five-speed manual or optional ($1,300) next-generation Nissan Xtronic CVT transmission. As for fuel consumption, the Versa Note gets 6.1/4.8/5.5L/100 km city/highway/combined with the CVT. Nissan was an early adopter of CVTs and remains the biggest proponent in the auto industry. In the early days, CVTs were loud and sluggish in reaction time especially under full throttle situations where the engine would peg at the redline as the engine tried to catch up as much the CVT pulleys

bulky items. But the floor-board cover can be lifted to reveal a hidden storage area for valuables or it can be lowered to make a deeper cargo well for tall items. The long list of features starts with the standard cloth seating, four-way adjustable front bucket seats (S) with six-way seats available (SV, SL), fine-vision instrumentation, AM/FM/CD/ Aux-in audio system with four speakers, 12-volt power outlet, front door pockets with bottle holders, dual front and rear cupholders and many more amenities. In Canada, heated outside mirrors are standard. Heated front seats with upgraded seat cloth and stitching are also available, along with leather-wrapped steering wheel, chrome/silver accents, USB input with iPod control and steering wheel-mounted audio and Bluetooth controls. Charcoal and Wheat Stone are the two interior colours.

The Note slots in above the Versa Sedan that starts at $11,898. Where the Versa has always excelled is in passenger and cargo volume, helped in large part by being based on Nissan’s global “V” platform with a 102.4-inch wheelbase. By scooping out the cabin, the Versa Note boasts 3,370.6 litres (115.5 cubic feet) of cabin volume, with the aforementioned 606 litres (21.4 cubic feet) of cargo room. That compares to the 479 litres (16.9 cu ft) in the Versa hatchback I drove back in 2006 when it first came out, which was considered gigantic at the time for a sub-compact. It’s also more than 100 litres larger than the Sentra compact sedan. Cargo volume can be increased with Nissan’s optional Divide-N-Hide adjustable floor. With the 60/40 rear seat folded, it creates a flat floor for long/

The interior of the 2014 Nissan Versa Note is straightforward, with all controls within easy reach of the driver.

Offered for the first time in its segment is the around-view monitor system. Using four small super-wideangle cameras mounted on the front, sides and rear of the vehicle the system projects a virtual 360-degree view of objects around the vehicle, helping the driver maneuver the car into tight spots. The around-view monitor is part of the SL Tech Package, which also features NissanConnect with with

NavTraffic. For the latter, a SiriusXM subscription is required and is sold separately. The system includes a 5.8inch (14.73 cm) colour touchscreen display, hands-free text messaging assistant, streaming audio via Bluetooth, real time local fuel prices, weather forecasts, flight information, POIs powered by Google and Google Send-to-Car. Standard safety and security systems include the Nissan

advanced airbag system, front seat-mounted side-impact supplemental air bags for chest protection, roof-mounted curtain sideimpact supplemental air bags, Vehicle Dynamic Control and Traction Control System. The Versa is the top-selling entry-level car in the U.S., but in Canada, it’s another story. Nissan knows it has stiff competition, but with the Note joining the Sedan, it feels Versa is on the right road to subcompact success.

BOPPRE, JAY October 31, 1953 – June 14, 2013 Jay Boppre, aka J-Bird, a Shuswap Lake local legend, flew the coop early on Friday June 14, 2013. Jay will be remembered always for his wild laughter, crispy deep tan, his 70’s style summer shorts and his immaculately clean pick up truck.

DEREK GALBRAITH September 23, 1988 – June 24, 2008

He was predeceased by his beloved Mother and Father, Leonard (Tyke) and Lucille Boppre and his 2nd Mom Joy Neilly. Jay was born in Calgary but raised in the Shuswap Lake area where he remained and built a life surrounded by family, friends, community and sunshine. Along with his love, Michelle Neilly, Jay raised his two active children, Kyle and Danielle, to love and respect Shuswap Lake and the mountains surrounding it as much as he did. Jay often took them snowmobiling up Crowfoot Mountain and summertime was spent navigating the Shuswap waters in “Dad’s” boat. Jay worked many years managing the Shuswap Provincial Campground in Scotch Creek and took great pride in making the large lawns greener than green, while working on his fabulous tan. He was an avid scuba diver and eventually turned this passion into his local “Swimmin’ the Shuswap” business, which he also took great pride in. Jay accumulated many work rags in his years at Captain’s Village Marina. “The Bird” dedicated much of his free time to his community earning himself the award of Citizen of the Year for the North Shuswap Community Association! Jay was one of the founding members of the Crowfoot Mountain Snowmobile Club and was also Chief of the Scotch Creek/Lee Creek Volunteer Fire Department for many years. Jay was a playful and energetic man with a mischievous sense of humour. He loved a good joke and when he laughed, people couldn’t help but laugh with him. He had a quiet gentle side that was appreciated by his 4-legged critters. He was often accompanied by a furry companion or had one waiting for him to return home to fire up the BBQ! Jay’s love of family and friends was profound. He loved life. He loved a good party and a great BBQ. Jay Bird, Cranky Pants, JAY! The Bird Man, Father Time, ‘ol Man Winter, and Papa Jay were a few of his endeared nicknames. He will be forever missed by his Shuswap Lake friends. He will be deeply missed by Kyle (son), his 3 “Little Ladies”, Danielle (Dan), Jaelynn (grand daughter), Taylor (daughter), and, Rya (grandson), Mark (brother), his true love Michelle, Debbie (Taylor’s Mom), his many in-laws: Lynda (Greg), Mark (Carin), Keenan (Mo), Ed, and his closest nieces and nephews, Alysha, Tarah, Karla, Eric, Jennifer, and Mason. Jay’s best furry friend Thor will never howl the same without him. We would like to extend a huge thank you to, Dora MacQuarrie, Mark and Angie Lagore, the staff at Overlander, Ponderosa, and Polsen extended care facilities and the hospice staff for their kind support and hard work taking care of Jay. Jay was gently assisted in his last days by the professional and compassionate staff at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice in Kamloops, BC.

We miss you Derek! We’re changed now. Not because he left us….. But because he touched us. Forever in our hearts.

In loving memory of Jay Boppre a sun loving shrub will be planted in the gardens at Marjorie Willoughby Hospice. A Celebration of Jay’s life will be held on July 6th 2013 at 2pm at the North Shuswap Community Hall. All friends and family are welcome to a reception at the hall after the service.

Love Mom, Dad, Brent and all your family and friends!

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Crowfoot Mountain Snowmobile Club for future club projects. Contact Julie or Martin at crowfootsledding@gmail.com

TITCOMB Margaret ‘Peggy’ Titcomb (nee Tomkins) died peacefully on Friday, June 21, 2013 at Royal Inland Hospital in Kamloops following a brief illness. She was 91. Peggy was born in Rugby, Warwickshire, England in June of 1922. She married the love of her life, Geoff Titcomb in 1945 and they were together for nearly 60 years until his death in 2005. Through Geoff’s work as an educator they lived all over the United Kingdom. After retirement Peggy and Geoff immigrated to Canada in 1988 to be near their daughter Jill and her family in Winnipeg. Ten years later they relocated to Kamloops. Peggy and Geoff were active members at Kamloops United Church and in particular the choirs. Peggy also made friends as a member of the White Cane Club as a Mall Walker at Aberdeen Mall and during her two very happy years living at the Ridgepointe. Peggy volunteered with various charities and churches in England and continued as a volunteer in Canada, most recently at the Kamloops Seniors Village. She enjoyed knitting, reading, letter writing, sewing and loved listening to books on tape. Extremely proud of her three children, Jill (Gillian), Patricia and Paul, Peggy was also a beloved grandmother and greatgrandmother. She will be greatly missed. A memorial service was held on Saturday, June 22 at 2:00 pm at Kamloops United Church. The family wishes to thank the amazing staff at Royal Inland Hospital, particularly those on ward 5 North, for taking such good care of Peggy in her Ànal days. In lieu of Áowers, it is requested that donations be made in Peggy’s name to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation (www.rihfoundation.ca) Schoenings Funeral Service 250-374-1454 schoeningsfuneralservice.com

One Final Gift Scatter me not to restless winds, Nor toss my ashes to the sea. Remember now those years gone by When loving gifts I gave to thee. Remember now the happy times The family ties we shared. Don’t leave my resting place unmarked As though you never cared. Deny me not one final gift For all who come to see A single lasting proof that says I loved... and you loved me. Author Unknown

GRANT LARSON Her Journey’s Just Begun

Grant passed peacefully June 17, 2013 from cancer in his 72nd year. He will be greatly missed by his loving wife Sharon of 51 years, daughters Dawn (Bob) and Vicky (Len), grandchildren Rob (Tomomi), Mike (Stephanie), Payton, Reece and great grandchildren Emily and Greyor. He is survived by sisters Janice (Dick), Grace (Pete) and Bernice (Jim). He and Sharon were married June 30, 1962 and moved to Kamloops in 1969 where they raised their daughters. Grant worked for BC Tel for 35 years as mechanic, mobile radio and electronics technician. He loved riding his dirt bike in the mountains, camping and enjoying the outdoors or touring on his GoldWing. As a hobby he fixed cars and motorcycles. After retiring, Grant & Sharon hauled their trailer and dirt bike to Mexico and Arizona in the winter. They toured all Provinces and States on their GoldWing. He volunteered at the BC Wildlife Park. Thanks to the staff at Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice, Dr. Koochin and Nurse Glen Cannon at RIH. An informal Celebration of Life will be held outside the Larson home July 13, 2013 1:00-4:00 pm. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice

Don’t think of her as gone away, Her journey’s just begun. Life holds so many facets, This earth is only one. Just think of her as resting, From the sorrows and the tears, In a place of warmth and comfort, Where there are no days and years. Think how she must be wishing, That we could know today, How nothing but our sadness, Can really pass away. And think of her as living, In the hearts of those she touched, For nothing loved is ever lost; And she was loved so much. E. Brenneman

on a Mission There’s room for all kinds of buyers at Mission Hill. The luxury condo development on the Summit Connector has attracted a diverse crop of buyers since Phase 1 went on the market — from young professionals and Thompson Rivers University personnel to more established buyers looking for the right place to downsize. “It’s pretty broad,” says realtor Bert Gatien. The realty team, which also includes Phil Dabner and Chris and Matt Town, have nearly sold out the one-bedroom units in the current phase of the development, but still have plenty of two-bedroom options available. The two-bedroom homes, the majority of which are over 1,000

square feet, range in price from $258,000 to $332,000. Each two bedroom home is available for immediate possession and comes move-in ready with blinds, stainless steel appliances, stacking washer and dryer, two bathrooms and walk-in or walk-through closets. In the kitchen home buyers can enjoy granite countertops and hand-set ceramic tile floors. The main feature for most of the units are the stunning views of North Kamloops and the Thompson River which can be enjoyed from covered concrete decks and balconies. “The Mission Hill development is Kamloops only concrete and steel constructed condo thereby providing purchasers a

noise-proofing advantage over wood frame developments”, adds realtor Matt Town. “It’s much, much quieter between floors,” he says. “If you live in a wood frame condo, you can hear people above or below

you.” The project also features central air conditioning, outdoor amenities, underground parking and storage lockers. While the development is currently accessible at the Summit Connector’s hairpin turn, Mission Hill

is paving the way for better access. A second road into the development that links up with Hudson’s Bay Trail is being planned, which will make it easier for residents to head back up Summit Drive to school or work in Sahali.

Construction on the roadway is set to begin as soon as the City of Kamloops provides a building permit for the project. Site supervisor Chris Metzner advised that the road will be completed by the end of the summer.

Deck the season with fresh summer start As the nice weather approaches, we all start to explore one of our favourite entertaining and relaxing areas — the great outdoor living space. As we look at this space, we begin to notice that it may be a little dirty or that the surface of our deck is a little tired looking. The first thing to think about is how to protect the investment and prolong its life. The two main causes of damage to any exterior wood surface is water and ultra violet rays. Although some outdoor woods might have preservatives, insect repellents and naturally long life in outdoor constructions, they are still susceptible to damage from water and UV rays. You can do a simple splash test by pouring water on to the surface and if the water penetrates into the wood it needs to be protected. If the wood is starting to look grey, the surface may be showing signs of aging from the sun and black mould and mildew could be growing on the surface. The best way to protect your deck is to make sure you clean the surface prior to applying a water repellent product. Using a deck cleaner on the surface is key to removing oxidation, dirt, mould, mildew

and dead wood fibers. Cleaners with brighteners in them can also restore the natural colour of cedar. Some believe that using a pressure washer by itself will clean the surface. Although a great tool in the right application, it does not remove all the mould or mildew and can damage the wood surface by removing wood fibers. Once the deck has been cleaned and has had time to dry you will want to protect against water damage and ultra violet rays. You may also like to add a little colour back into the wood. With the improvement of new products these days, you can clean your deck in the morning and protect it later in the day, say the research and development team at Thompson’s. Here are a few ways to do this effortlessly: Clean the surface with their brand line called Thompson’s WaterSeal Deck Wash or with the Heavy Duty Cleaner. Protect it with their formula WaterSeal Advanced. It will protect your deck for years to come. newscanada.com

Gazebo dreams can easily become reality Do you dream of a peaceful gazebo for your backyard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an attractive little pavilion where you can relax, hide from the sunâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midday heat or dine with friends, al fresco? Whether you imagine it to be circular, square or hexagonal, nothing is stopping you from creating the gazebo youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to have. Just head out to your closest book store or renovation centre for some plans and get out your saws and hammers! A gazebo is relatively easy to build, as there are no walls involved, and straightforward plans and gazebo kits are readily available in stores. If you decide to go for a personalized design, your biggest challenge will be in cutting the framework to size. However you approach this project, you should always check Kamloops building regulations before getting down to work. Once you have obtained a construction

WHY HALSON MODULAR HOMES?

permit, prepare the ground with a layer of limestone gravel compacted with a roller. There are many architectural styles from which to choose, ranging from simple to extremely complicated. Four, six or eight sides, closed or open â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it all depends on what you will use it for. To guide you in your choice of style, remember that a gazebo can be enjoyed as much by the children as by their parents. You might want to make it big enough to include a play area, a place for family meals or a relaxing corner for reading. Think about adding trellises or mosquito screens on the sides, as well as double doors or an up-and-over opening to ensure your gazebo is as user-friendly as possible. Landscaping around the gazebo is also an important element of this project. Once it is covered in vegetation, the gazebo will blend beautifully into your backyard.

Average house price in B.C. pegged at $534K The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) reports that a total of 7,664 residential sales were recorded by the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in B.C. in May, down 0.7 per cent from May of 2012. However, total sales dollar volume was two per cent higher, at $4.1 billion. The average MLS residential price in the province was $534,013, up 2.7 per cent from a year ago. “B.C. home sales continued to trend higher in May,” said Cameron Muir, the BCREA’s chief economist. “In contrast to slowing demand and moderating prices in 2012, the B.C. housing market is turning around.” Rising consumer demand combined with inventory levels that remain in check has moved the province’s largest markets into balanced territory.

HOUSING STARTS RISING IN KAMLOOPS Kamloops-area housing starts were up compared to levels recorded in May 2012. Higher levels of multiplefamily starts accounted for the increase, with 143 recorded compared to 43 started in May 2012. Through the first five months of the year, Kamloops has recorded a total of 167 housing starts, compared to 65 housing starts through the same time period last year. Vernon-area new home construction has maintained a steady pace in 2013. Both May and year-to-date starts were similar to levels reported in 2012.

“Home prices have edged higher over the past three months in B.C.’s large Lower Mainland market,” added Muir. The MLS Home Price Composite Index for the Lower Mainland was

up 0.2 per cent over the past month and 1.4 per cent over the past three months. Year-to-date, B.C. residential-sales dollar volume was down 12.2 per cent to $14.9 billion, com-

pared to the same period last year. Residential unit sales were down 10.7 per cent to 28,140 units, while the average MLS residential price was down 1.7 per cent at $530,936.

Planning a home purchase? Know the five C’s

P

URCHASING A home is a major deci-

sion.

It represents the single-largest purchase a family will ever make. So, when it comes to qualifying for home financing, what should you know? Here are the five C’s important to the bank: • Capital: How much do you have to put down for the purchase of your new home? The larger the down payment, the less risk you present to the lender. Five per cent is the minimum down payment required to purchase a home in Canada. • Capacity: Will your income be sufficient?

Lenders allow about 40 per cent of your income for housing costs and debt. This includes property taxes, strata, mortgage, car payments, credit-card

payments and other debt payments. Your income is a key part of how much a bank will lend to you, so be prepared to prove it with a job letter, a pay stub

and even NOAs. • Credit: Are you a good credit risk? Credit is the evaluation of your habits when it comes to borrowing. If you have never

taken out a loan or used a credit card, you may be surprised to find out you have no credit rating at all! A bank likes to see a good history of borrowing and repaying your debts, with no missed or late payments — even phone bills can count! • Collateral: Will the real-estate purchase offer suitable collateral to the lender? Lenders will do their homework to ensure your purchase is in good condition, with good resale value. Where lenders disagree with your purchase price or have concerns about condition, an appraisal may be required. • Character: What kind of impression will you give?

Character is your reputation and reliability. The bank may not have had prior dealings with you, so they will be looking for signs of your character ,including: ■ Assets/ debt/ net worth — How have you spent your earnings? What do you have to show for it? ■ Educational background and work experience — People with a transient job or address history are seen as less reliable than someone who has been in a home or job for 20 years.
