Former gang leader granted day parole By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
His name is known across North America — but this horse whisperer made it clear during a recent visit to Kamloops that he is not in it for the money or fame. “If I can show someone how to do something and they are successful at it, well, it makes me feel really good,” Larry Nelles said. “If I can teach just one person everything I know, I can die happy.”
STORY, PAGE A13 Dave Eagles/KTW
A Kamloops gangster serving a sevenyear federal prison term for drug trafficking has been granted day parole. Jayme Russell was given that right by the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) in a decision dated July 11. A copy of the decision was made public on Monday, July 15. Russell, 32, will have to comply with a number of strict conditions, including orders he provide full financial disclosure to his parole officer, remain “gainfully employed or continue to actively search for employment” and not own or possess more than one “mobile communication device.” The written decision outlines discussions Russell had with PBC members, including him boasting about having “an income of well over $1 million” while running a “professional and reliable” drug ring in Kamloops. In 2009, Russell was convicted of drug trafficking after conspiring, alongside Thomas Crawford, to sell cocaine and guns to a pair of undercover police officers. Russell had previ-

ously been identified by Kamloops Mounties as the leader of the local chapter of the Independent Soldiers street gang. Russell has the words “Independent Soldier” tattooed on his forearms. Crawford was at one time believed to have been his second-incommand. While free on bail awaiting sentencing following that conviction, Russell was arrested on separate trafficking

charges. In March of 2009, a four-month investigation by Kamloops Mounties resulted in the seizure of three kilograms of cocaine, a loaded handgun, body armour and thousands of dollars in cash, as well as the arrest of Russell and three associates. He subsequently pleaded guilty and was handed a further fiveyear jail term.

COVER PAGE STORY
Russell involved in numerous incidents while locked up in prison X From A1
The PBC decision cites a number of incidents involving Russell at federal institutions since his incarceration began. In February 2012, Russell was segregated involuntarily after prison staff intercepted information indicating his safety might be in jeopardy. Last summer, he was implicated in two securityrelated incidents involving weapons, drugs, drug paraphernalia and pornography. In September 2012 Russell was segregated again after prison officials received information he was “involved in the institutional drug subculture.” Two months later, in November 2012, prison staff found “numerous unauthorized items” in Russell’s cell. Earlier this year, Russell became agitated after learning “a collateral contact may impose limits on [his] access to a close family member,” the decision states. Russell is quoted as saying he would “do something about it,” including fleeing the country with two family members and saying he intended to return to prison. Four months ago, a drug-sniffing dog focused on a woman who was visiting Russell in prison. The decision states Russell lashed out at staff after being told the visitor had been turned away. Russell’s previous institutional parole officer said he was an “unmanageable” risk in the community, but a new officer described him as having a “strong core” and being manageable on parole. Despite having a brief criminal record, Russell has been charged with a number of serious offences in Kamloops in recent years. In 2008, he was acquitted on an aggravatedassault charge after witnesses — including the alleged victim — refused to testify against him. The charge came following an altercation in which Russell was alleged to have held a gun to the neck of another man outside a Kamloops nightclub. Later the same year, an attempted-murder charge against Russell was dropped after the alleged victim in a violent stabbing incident — believed to be a member of a rival gang — claimed in court to have forgotten the attack. At a later hearing, the Crown said “civilian-witness intimidation” played a big part in both cases. In deciding parole applications, the PBC considers not only criminal convictions, but all past charges. The PBC has labelled Russell “a moderate risk to re-offend generally and violently.” While on day parole, Russell will have to return to a federal institution each night to sleep. There is no indication as to where Russell will be released on day parole, but a 2012 PBC decision denying the same request said he intended to live in the Lower Mainland. Russell’s statutory-release date — two thirds of his seven-year sentence — is Jan. 13, 2014.
Jayme Russell (at left in photo to the left and at right in photo to the right) was acquitted on charges of aggravated assault and attempted murder in Kamloops before being convicted and sentenced on drug-related charges. The erstwhile leader of the Kamloops chapter of the Independent Soldiers gang is now on day parole, with his statutory release set for Jan. 13, 2014.

City transit driver fails sobriety test By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A Kamloops transit driver is out of work for at least 90 days after failing an RCMP roadside-sobriety test on the weekend. “We can confirm that a Kamloops transit operator failed a roadside screening test on Saturday while on duty,” BC Transit corporate spokeswoman Maureen Sheehan told KTW. Kamloops RCMP responded to a complaint from a witness and pulled the bus over in Juniper Ridge at 10:45 a.m. on Saturday, July 13. “There was a report of actions by that bus and driver that brought it to our attention,” RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said. “We were operating on a tip from a member of the public.” There were no passengers or other
occupants on the bus at the time it was pulled over. The driver, whose name has not been made public, was handed a 90-day immediate roadside prohibition, meaning he can’t drive a bus — or any vehicle — for three months. “We’re very concerned about this incident,” Sheehan said, noting the driver is employed by First Canada, which operates the public bus system in Kamloops for BC Transit. “First Canada is responsible for completing the investigation and taking any actions they find appropriate.” Ward said it’s not uncommon for professional drivers to be caught behind the wheel while over the legal limit. “Has it happened before? Absolutely,” he said. “We’ve had professional drivers — Greyhound, truck drivers. It does happen.”
Proposed gravel pit raises ire By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Westsyders who banded together at the last minute to oppose a gravel pit application for Westsyde Road will have to wait about two months to find out if their concerns have been heard by the province. According to a spokesman for the provincial Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, it generally takes about 70 days for the chief inspector of mines to reach a decision on a regional gravel-pit application. A 30-day public-comment period on the pit, slated for 7461 Westsyde Rd., in the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, closed on Saturday, July 14. News of the application spread rapidly over social media last week after an eagle-eyed resident spotted a legally required public notice about the project

in a newspaper classified section. A widely shared Facebook post about the pit filled up with comments from Westsyde residents urging lastminute opposition to the project. According to a proposal filed with the chief inspector of mines by Deltabased Jamieson Creek Gravel — which is not affiliated with Jamieson Creek Sand and Gravel, an already extant operation in the same area — the pit could provide about 120,000 cubic metres of gravel per year during its five-year life span. Bob McLellan has perhaps the most obvious objection to the proposal — if the pit becomes operational, it will be 100 metres from his house. McLellan, a locomotive engineer for CP Rail, bought his Jamieson Creek lot in 1995 when he was looking for a place that would provide some peace and quiet.

Speeding truckers warned By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Todd Stone has a message for truckers on Highway 5A. “If you speed, you will get caught,” the Kamloops-South Thompson MLA and minister of transportation said a news conference on Friday, July 12. “And we will throw the book at you.” Stone announced the province plans to construct more safety features and send more enforcement officers to the stretch of highway between Kamloops and Merritt, but said he has — for now — ruled out any possibility of a ban on truck traffic along the route. A commercial truck ban was a pet project of Stone’s predecessor, Kevin Krueger.
In his last months as MLA, Krueger introduced a petition with more than 1,400 signatures collected from homeowners on the 5A, calling for a ban on non-local commercial trucks. He also suggested the province impose lower speed limits on those vehicles. Stone said he has made Highway 5A a top priority, but accident and traffic enforcement statistics don’t show a need for an outright ban, or lower speed limits, in the area. “If we were seeing fatalities and accidents around this corridor that were above the provincial average that were increasing incrementally, perhaps that would be an option to consider, but the exact opposite is happening
Pot talk back at council After months in stasis, the medical-marijuana debate returns to Kamloops council today (July 16). In November 2012, council agreed to hold a public hearing on a new set of regulations that would make it illegal to grow marijuana in a residential neighbourhood — or anywhere but industrial-zoned land. However, the city decided to hold off on the hearing until the federal government brought in a series of major changes to the way it runs its medical marijuana program. Those changes — which shift pot production from individual medical users to large, licensed facilities — were finalized earlier this summer. If approved, the new Kamloops rules would limit grow-ops to class two and three industrial lands that are at least 150 metres from schools, parks nd other centres aimed at children. The grow-ops would also be required to meet numerous environmental conditions.

on this corridor,” Stone said. Instead, according to a Ministry of Transportation report, the number of serious crashes has dropped since safety improvements — including speed-readar boards and new regulatory and warning signs — went in between 2010 and 2011. In the two years before the improvements were installed, there were eight serious crashes involving commercial trucks. In the two years following, there were four. The number of truck-speeding violations, meanwhile, dropped 70 per cent between 2010 and 2012. Stone said he has asked the ministry to increase the number of hours Commercial
Vehicle Safety Enforcement officers spend on the highway, to 20 days a month from 15. That change goes into effect immediately. More signage and resurfacing are also planned for the corridor. “We believe we’ve struck a balance here between recognizing that safety is the No. 1 priority as well as recognizing that movement of people and goods through this corridor, as with all of our highways around this province, is crucial,” Stone said. Mike Lorimer, the ministry’s regional director in the southern Interior, said staff are also planning a study this summer that will look at why truck drivers are taking the 5A instead of the Coquihalla Highway.
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.

RECALL AND INITIATIVE ACT
This notice is published pursuant to section 4 of the Recall and Initiative Act. Approval in principle has been granted on an application for an initiative petition. The petition will be issued to proponent Dana Larsen on Monday, September 9, 2013 and signature sheets must be submitted to the Chief Electoral Officer by Monday, December 9, 2013. The Title of the Initiative is: An initiative to amend the Police Act. Summary of Initiative: The initiative draft Bill entitled, “Sensible Policing Act” proposes to amend the Police Act to no longer use provincial police resources on the enforcement of current laws in relation to simple possession and use of cannabis by adults. The draft law would prohibit the use of provincial police resources for this purpose, would require police to report in detail to the Minister of Justice any actual use of resources for this purpose and why it was necessary, and require the Minister to publish that report. The Bill also proposes that the province would call upon the Federal Government to repeal the federal prohibition on cannabis, or give British Columbia an exemption, such that British Columbia is able to tax and regulate cannabis similar to the regulation of alcohol and tobacco. As well it proposes that British Columbia shall establish a Provincial Commission to study the means and requirements necessary for the province to establish a legal and regulated model for the production and use of cannabis by adults. Last, the Bill would make non-lawful possession and use of cannabis by minors an offence similar to possession and use of alcohol.
Initiative Advertising: Individuals or organizations who sponsor initiative advertising, other than the proponent and registered opponents, must register with the Chief Electoral Officer before they conduct or publish initiative advertising. Registration applications are available from Elections BC. Who May Sign the Petition: Registered voters as of Monday, September 9, 2013 may sign the initiative petition.

The Association of BC Forest Professionals (ABCFP) is responsible for registering and regulating the 5,400 professional foresters and forest technologists who care for BC’s forests as well as advocating for good forest stewardship.

Focus is on aboriginal child health By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
A nationally recognized expert in aboriginal health will become the latest endowed chair at Thompson Rivers University. Dr. Rod McCormick, a psychologist specializing in First Nations mental health, will lead research teams at TRU focused on aboriginal early-childhood development and maternal and child health. McCormick’s work is being funded by $2.5-million from the B.C. government through its Leading Edge Endowment Fund, which sets up research chairs at colleges and universities throughout the province.
McCormick is the 27th and final chair appointed through the program. His work at TRU will involve several university faculties, including social work, human, social and educational development, arts and nursing. He will also partner with local First Nations organizations, such as the Secwepemc Cultural Education Society. McCorkmick, who is Mohawk, said First Nations children have higher rates of infectious disease, accidents and injuries and suicide than non-aboriginal children. They are also at least 10 times more likely to be seized by government organizations. He said he sees com-
munity and parental engagement as keys to decreasing those rates. “Unfortunately, due to our history of residential schools and so on, that ability to care for our children has been impacted,” he said. “So, I believe if we can get that back again, get the community involved, that would be our biggest impact.” His work at TRU will also involve looking at what resources aboriginal parents and children have at their disposal now and how and whether they are being accessed. That could include community support organizations or cultural knowledge from members of various bands in the region.
“To go forward and improve their health, we first need to gather energy and improve their resources, gather medicine,” McCormick said. “I believe a lot of that traditional knowledge of how to improve our help has always been there. “It’s just a question of gathering that energy so we can go forward more efficiently.” Before coming to TRU, McCormick was an associate professor of counselling psychology at UBC. Besides his research chair, he has another connection to the Kamloops area — his wife is Tk’emlups Indian Band Coun. Katy Gottfriedson’s first cousin.
‘I believe a lot of that traditional knowledge of how to improve our help has always been there. It’s just a question of gathering that energy so we can go forward more efficiently.’ — Dr. Rod McCormick

Transit bike lockers half empty By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Just over half of the city’s transit exchange bike lockers are standing empty a year after the rental program began. Transit planner Erin Felker said four of the eight lockers at the Lansdowne Village exchange are being rented.
At the North Shore transit exchange, only one of the four lockers available is in use. Felker said the city still hopes to grow the rental program. “If we had them all rented, we would know there’s a big demand out there and need to expand,” she said. “But, right now, we have capacity within the system.”
The city rolled out the locker-rental program last summer, offering the storage space for $10 a month plus HST and a $50 deposit. Felker said the lockers can be used by cyclists in flat areas of the city who ride their bike to the transit exchanges. “You could leave your bike there and take the bus up the hill if you’re travel-
ling to TRU or another less-friendly cycling destination,” she said. Cyclists riding to transit exchanges also have the option of putting their bikes on racks on the bus. “Many people may be choosing to take their bikes on the bus once they get to that point, instead of leaving it at the exchange and then just taking the bus up
the hill,” Felker said. She believes the North Shore lockers may be less popular because that exchange isn’t an end point for many transit users. The lockers cost about $20,000 to install. Felker said they cost “virtually nothing” to maintain.
CITY HALL $100,000. To offset the extra costs, the city plans to pull $150,000 out of its gambling reserve. It will also postpone planned sidewalk installations on McGill Road and the 900 block of Summit Drive to make up the rest of the difference.

All aboard an entertaining journey to our wireless youth
N THE END, MR. BODY WAS bludgeoned to death in the salon with a candlestick wielded by Mrs. White, the cold-blooded killer who looks no more dangerous than a kindly librarian. The savage act was deduced by my 12-year-old son, who joined me and his big sister in that night’s detective hall of fame. Three rounds of the board game Clue and three different Sherlock Holmes solving the mystery. In this age of heads tilted and eyes fixated and thumbs tap-tap-tapping on smartphones and iPods, unplugging from the video addiction and tossing the dice on a good old-fashioned board game offers a refreshing reprieve. But, as video-game violence and associated mayhem on the Internet gets much press, I took a look at the board game on the table and the stacks of board games in the closet — and realized we have always been tied to real-life scenarios, even when trying to escape the same in games, be they board or video. Take Clue, for example. It’s a fantastic game that forces players to draw on their powers of deduction, but the central theme is murder — in various violent ways. Hangings, shootings and bluntforce trauma take the life of hapless Mr. Body again and again and again. The carnage litters various elegant rooms in a grand mansion frequented by an assortment of wealthy and high-ranking people. There’s a professor and a colonel among the killers.

MUSINGS Clue is not alone in board games that replicate the uglier side of real life. Risk mimics that which we all profess to wish would be eradicated from the face of the earth — war. The goal is to have your troops kill all the other troops in battle and conquer the territories of your opponent, invading and, presumably, enslaving the populace, Monopoly is the most popular board game of all time and the goal is to become filthy rich while bankrupting all others. In Monopoly, as in real life, the rich get richer, the poor get poorer and the middle class doesn’t have a chance. Sorry is a simple game in which you race others to the finish line while doing everything you can to thwart their success, each time saying you are sorry despite not meaning it — not unlike the recent provincial election campaign. Even the venerable Game of Life, which was unveiled in 1860, the very year the U.S. Civil War began, has managed to stay relevant with soci-
ety’s ever-changing values. The game I remember from my childhood had players choosing to go to college or get a job, the latter being a decision that would likely land a player in the “poor farm;” the former being a choice that would likely see the player retire in “Millionaire Acres.” In the 1990s, the game was updated with recycling and helping the homeless added to the play. The latest version of The Game of Life, which we purchased a few years ago, had me baffled as I studied the board. On a spot just over the second bridge was a commendation for helping African orphans — something definitely foreign to The Game of Life of my youth. Of course, the next updated version I buy will likely have us landing on spaces that gift us 20 per cent pay hikes as city administrators, or spaces giving us 100 per cent medical and dental coverage, courtesy of taxpayers in The Game of Life. Hey, it happens in Real Life, so why not in The Game of Life? Video games and 3D movies do not have exclusive domain over virtual reality. It’s right there, in our closets, on boards carrying memories of your youth. Do yourself a favour — drop the Wii remotes and dust off Battleship. It will feel good. firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds chrisfoulds.blogspot.com
We were heartened recently upon hearing Canadian veterans of the Korean War were finally to be recognized with their own day of remembrance. The Year of the Korean War Veteran was proclaimed by the federal government in January, to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the armistice signed in 1953. But, the enactment of a special day, July 27 — to be marked in perpetuity to honour the sacrifices and efforts of Canadian soldiers, sailors and air force personnel — has more long-term significance. In all, 516 Canadians died and another 1,558 were wounded in the three-year conflict — a battle between the Soviet and Chinasupported north, and the south Koreans, supported by the United Nations, some of the member countries of which waged war against the Nazis just a handful of years previous. Stories of surviving family members receiving little in the way of acknowledgement of their sons and daughters’ sacrifices from the Canadian government have been shocking and embarrassing. Media of the day largely ignored the conflict, to the point where many Canadians back home didn’t realize their country was playing a combat role in the wartorn region. Luckily, things have changed in 50 years, including the treatment of veterans and the value we place on their role in maintaining peace and reducing chaos in the world. Most wars in which Canada has been involved have aimed to achieve a political end for the greater good. The people on the front lines working to accomplish that aim — some of whom paid the ultimate price — deserve to be recognized for their efforts, which in the vast majority of cases are honest, true and patriotic. Regardless how one feels about war, the Canadians who have fought them have, at the end of the day, worked to protect the rights and freedoms we should never take for granted. For that, they deserve our thanks. On July 27, they will get it.

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Re: Story: ‘He’s going to get away with murder’: “I think that if a person is in the back of a police car, they should automatically assume they have the right to remain silent. “Maybe that should be a new rule so a police officer that may be seriously stressed out at an incident doesn’t forget to read someone their rights. “If we all knew the moment we were in a cop car that we had the right to remain silent and to seek counsel without delay, then people wouldn’t get away with stuff like this and other crimes because a simple mistake was made by an officer. “Even a white sticker covering various languages could be stuck on the back of the driver’s seat, telling people of their rights right then and there. “This person is clearly guilty of causing the deaths of these two individuals and should have to pay the maximum penalty. “Prayers to all involved.” — posted by Tim Martindale

Let the kiddies wade in peace in Prince Charles Editor: It’s been a lovely summer so far and I am quite enjoying the fact my 11-month-old daughter is now old enough to enjoy the wading pool at Prince Charles Park, upgraded and opened not too long ago. Upon taking her to the park on a busy Saturday afternoon, it feels like older kids are taking over the pool. This pool is clearly meant for young children, not for pre-teens and teenagers to go motoring through from the playground area. There are plenty of other pools, playgrounds and water-
Parents of pre-teens and teenagers need to teach their kids to be careful around the little ones in the wading pool at Prince Charles Park, according to KTW reader Brianna Munro. Allen Douglas/KTW
parks in Kamloops designed for older children. Sitting poolside with my extended
family, I saw a threeor four-year-old get knocked down, flat on their face, on a concrete surface by a pre-
teen boy. How is that fair to the younger children who wish to enjoy the knee-deep pool?
I’m not saying parents should not allow their older kids in the wading pool, but perhaps they should educate them to be careful around kids who are younger than them. We all need to play it safe wherever we are. Brianna Munro Kamloops
Ajax trolling city for ideas on convincing residents Editor: The recent KGHM Ajax survey (‘Yes, that phone poll was from KGHM Ajax,’ July 11) appears to be aimed at trolling the public for ideas on how the company can convince Kamloops residents its proposed open-pit copper and gold mine could be environmentally friendly. At least, that’s the impression when the company’s pollsters terminate the survey if respondents don’t agree that mining is an “essential part of the Kamloops economy” and only bother interviewing potential allies. In fact, KGHM Ajax admits the survey wasn’t designed to find any statistical
information or quantitative results. It’s just casting a wide net in the hopes of getting “an overall perspective and understanding of the [mining-friendly] residents’ opinion towards mining.” The in-house team at KGHM Ajax doesn’t seem to be doing a credible job of informing or persuading a decent majority of the public that the mine’s a good idea — and good PR firms are expensive. So, while we’re all forced to wait patiently and asked to withhold judgment until KGHM Ajax releases its meters-high stack of information and intentions this fall, the company keeps throwing money at community organizations and conduct-
ing surveys of the converted. Expect another such survey to follow soon. After so many local doctors recently came out likening Kamloops’ air quality to low-level smoking if the mine goes ahead, KGHM Ajax must be scrambling to figure out how to convince people the proposed operation won’t be a health hazard to everyone in the community. Maybe they could pinpoint their allies with a first question like, “Is it OK for kids to smoke a couple of cigarettes a day?” — then let the ideas flow. Bronwen Scott Kamloops
Yes, mining can be done right — away from Kamloops Editor: I read with great interest the July 11 story on the KGHM Ajax phone poll (‘Yes, that phone poll was from KGHM Ajax’) that reported the company is conducting a poll with regard to residents’ opinions toward mining. No one has called me yet, but my answers are ready. When I am asked if mining is an essential part of the Kamloops community, I will respond with enthusiasm, “Absolutely.” We would still be riding bicycles without mining.
When I am asked if mining can be done in an environmentally friendly, I will say again, “Absolutely.” Mining can be done in a better than environmentally friendly way. It can be done in a lung-friendly, ear-friendly, brain-friendly, health-friendly, child-friendly way quite easily — at least 15 kilometres from the rim of the Kamloops valley and the schoolchildren growing up in this (or any other) B.C. city.

Evidence tossed, but trial will proceed in 2014 A judge has thrown out three key pieces of Crown evidence against a Kamloops man charged in connection to a double-fatal crash in 2010 — but the man’s trial will proceed. Wayne Fedan is facing two counts each of impaired driving causing death, causing an accident resulting in death and dangerous driving causing death in relation to a single-vehicle wreck in North Kamloops on March 20, 2010.
Court has heard Fedan was driving a black pickup truck at the time of the crash, which killed both occupants — 20-year-old Brittany Plotnikoff and 38-yearold Kenneth Craigdaillie. In a lengthy oral decision on Thursday, July 11, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Deborah Kloegman ruled Fedan’s Charter rights were breached in the hours following the crash. As a result, she excluded three
pieces of evidence — an admission Fedan was driving, an admission he had been drinking and evidence of the smell of liquor on his breath — from the lead investigator, Kamloops RCMP Const. Mike Penman. However, she also said the case against Fedan will not be “gutted” by the exclusion of the statements. Go to kamloopsthisweek.com and click on “News” to read the full story.

Dust, trafﬁc are concerns X From A3
“It was bare land surrounded by land in the [Agricultural Land Reserve],” he said. “We were thinking it was going to be a quiet place to build a house and raise a family and grow old in.” That a gravel pit would be next door never crossed his mind. While there are other pits in the area, McLellan said they have been more of an issue for his neighbours than for him. Until now, he’s been lucky enough to be upwind of dust kicked up by the other operations and the nearest pit is about a mile away. If the pit goes through, that will no longer be the case. “I could throw a rock from my bedroom window to where it would be,” McLellan said, noting he is also concerned about the effect the operation will have on his hay fields and his family’s horseboarding operation. “Horses are prey. They’re startled very easy,” he said. “Their instinct is to run and flee from danger and noise, like a deer. “If you’re training a young horse, you’re riding it and, all of a sudden, they dump a lot of rocks into a screener, that horse is going to jump sideways. Somebody’s going to get hurt. “There’s just an allaround danger being developed alongside my property.” Ted Schrauwen, owner of Jamieson Creek Sand and Gravel and McLelland’s neighbour, said the volume of gravel the new pit’s owner wants to extract is more than 12 times the volume that his own company did all last year. In their busiest season, Schrauwen’s company moves eight to 10 trucks a day. If the new company is permitted to extract the volume of gravel it wants to, it could fill 50 trucks a day, five days a week. While he admits the
new pit is a potential competitor, Schrauwen said he’s more concerned about its effects on his property, which is also within a kilometre of the new pit. With a high number of large pits already in the area and much of the natural vegetation felled because of pine beetles, he said there’s little cover to keep the dust from blowing. Schrauwen said some dust is inevitable — it’s the nature of the industry, and the region’s high temperatures don’t help — but bigger operations whose owners don’t live in the area typically don’t worry about managing their debris, and there’s little industry regulation. “They close the gates at 4 and the dust is still blowing and we have to deal with it,” he said. As the owner of a house near Arthur Stevenson elementary within city limits in Westsyde, Tanya Spahmann doesn’t have to worry about dust and noise. Instead, the Westsyde Road resident is concerned about the pit’s effect on traffic. “Traffic on the road is already heavy,” said Spahmann, who heard about the pit from a Facebook post about the gravel pit that is rapidly going viral. “You add 50 to 70 more trucks and it’s going to be insane. “It rattles our house. We’re worried about damage to our road and our house and decreased property values.” She thinks the effect on traffic will be even worse where the road narrows to two lanes. At both ends of Westsyde Road, residents are also questioning the notification required for the project. McLellan said he heard about the pit from his mother-in-law, who spotted a notice in the paper in late June. Comment threads about the project on Facebook, posted on Tuesday, July 9, are
filled with surprised comments from Westsyders hearing about the project for the first time and trying to figure out what action they could take before the deadline for public commenting. Documents from the Agricultural Land Commission show that body gave its approval for a gravel pit in March of this year. In a telephone interview, Jamieson Creek Gravel owner Bruce Bried told KTW the project has been in the works for about a year. Bried said he isn’t
sure how many new trucks the operation would send down Westsyde Road. But, he said, 50 to 70 is likely a high estimate. “It wouldn’t make that much difference to what’s already going on,” he said. The company plans to do its gravel crushing and screening once per year, operating 10 hours a day, seven days a week during that period. Bried hasn’t yet decided how long the yearly crushing would take.

Mounties save boaters Kamloops Mounties patrolling the South Thompson River managed to save two people on a boat that had been stranded in Kamloops Lake during an intense storm on the weekend. Just after 6 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, Mounties responded to a call of a stranded boat on the lake east of Savona. A boat encountered engine problems after being caught in a sudden storm. One person reportedly swam to shore to call for help, while two other occupants remained with the disabled boat. RCMP officers were on the river conducting routine boat patrols at the time of the incident and were able to respond to the call for help. The stranded boaters were found and taken to the Tobiano Marina by the Kamloops Police boat. There were no injuries reported.
Taxi driver mugged by two men Kamloops RCMP are looking for two men who robbed a taxi driver on the weekend. On Sunday, July 14, at about 10:30 p.m., a Kamloops Yellow Cab taxi driver picked up two men in the downtown core, near Third Avenue and St. Paul Street. The taxi was driving east on St. Paul Street when one of the men assaulted and mugged the driver. The men ran from the taxi in the area of Seventh Avenue and St. Paul Street and are described as being between 25 and 30 years old, of medium height and of East Indian descent. Anybody with information on the robbery is asked to call Kamloops RCMP at 250-828-3000.
POLICE BEAT man having his arm slashed with a knife. Cpl. Cheryl Bush said officers were called to the Fortune Drive restaurant, where they received conflicting reports about what had occurred. Bush said the incident began as a verbal dispute between a family of five with their dogs and a father and son. “At some point, things became physical and one male ended up with a cut on his arm,” Bush said. “The male, in his early 30s, was taken to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment on his arm.” Bush said both groups claimed the other group pulled out a knife.
Attempted truck thefts related? Police are searching for two men who tried to steal a truck on the North Shore on the weekend — with
another attempt to steal a vehicle 90 minutes later possibly linked. At 10:25 p.m. on Sunday, July 14, Kamloops Mounties were called to an attempted theft of vehicle in progress on Fairview Avenue. Two men were seen trying to steal a Ford F250 pickup truck. They ran away before police arrived. One of the suspects stands just over six feet tall and was wearing a bright blue hoodie, jeans and backpack. The second suspect was wearing a dark hoodie and pants, along with a back pack. Only 90 minutes later, just past midnight, police responded to an attempted theft of vehicle near 11th Street and Lethbridge Avenue. A witness saw a man trying to steal a Ford F250 pickup truck. The suspect is described as standing six feet tall. He is in his 20s and was wearing a sky blue hoodie, a backpack and jeans. He ran away before Mounties arrived.

the eQuine expert By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER
His name is known across North America — but this horse whisperer made it clear during a recent visit to Kamloops that he is not in it for the money or fame. When he was just 11, Larry Nelles moved from home to begin his first job working at a ranch in Alberta. There, the ranch owner tried to show Nelles his techniques. “I was 11 years old and knew everything,” Nelles said while taking a break from teaching at the Circle Creek Ranch. “Now I am 75 and I have realized I know nothing.” After being bucked off one of the horses every day he worked at the ranch, the ranch owner took away Nelles reins and gave him a cotton string. “He told me if I pulled on it, it would break and I would need to ride without reins of any kind,” Nelles recalled. This forced him at a young age to learn how to use light hands, something he didn’t realize the importance of until many years later. Such methods and hard lessons gave Nelles the knowledge that has made him who and what he is today. It becomes obvious to anyone watching Nelles at work that he is there to train the riders, not the horses. He does his best during the short time with the group to explain things from the horse’s perspective. One of the biggest problems in horse training today, he said, is that everyone is in too much of a hurry. “They flick a switch and a light turns on. They turn a tap and water comes out. They turn the key in their car and it starts,” Nelles said. “Everything is instantaneous nowadays and they want their horse to be the same way.” “You don’t learn to be a doctor overnight or even in three months of schooling,” he said. “You do 13 years of school before you even go to university, where you do even more.”
If person cannot learn years worth of information overnight, Nelles said, how can a horse be expected to? “Horses really do not care what you know. They are more interested in what they feel,” he said. “Sometimes you need to let the horses find their way” Nelles does not raise his voice or his hand to his horse. He hardly even uses the reins. His directions are delivered to the horse by slight movements of the body, barely noticeable to those watching. There are many naturalist practising now, Nelles said, but there are also many who do not tell the truth or explain what good horsemanship is. There are, he said, many in it purely for the money, which does not benefit the rider. “A lot of people know me, but I try to back off of that because I do not want to become a celebrity,” Nelles said. “I would rather just stay low-key and help people.” Nelles doesn’t even advertise his services, with his clients coming to him on a word-of-mouth basis.

training at his ranch in Arizona and the constant travelling to places like Circle Creek Ranch in Kamloops, it is clear this is not a job, but a passion, for Nelles. “It is the way I like it. I don’t want to try to be somebody that I am not” he said. “I see that often with people who start to make it big, they have an image
they need to protect. I don’t want to do that.” Dressed in tanned fringed chaps and a white cowboy hat that clearly has seen a few corrals, Nelles is about as humble as they come. Instead of spending his nights in a comfortable hotel during his visit to Kamloops, he chose to sleep in a small, cozy trailer parked next to one
of the horse pastures, the sound of whinnies audible from inside. “I get a lot of enjoyment out of it,” Nelles said. “If I can show someone how to do something and they are successful at it, well, it makes me feel really good. “If I can teach just one person everything I know, I can die happy.”

Flooded out and coming to Kamloops By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER
They are coming two by two all the way from the Calgary Zoo. The B.C. Wildlife Park in Kamloops will be welcoming two black swans as early as today (July 16), according to park general manager Glenn Grant. The two latest additions to the park are in desperate need of a new home after major flooding in Calgary earlier this month destroying their habitat at the zoo. Calgary Zoo officials are assessing damage in the tens of millions and have had to close a number of habitats. “It is going to take a long time to rebuild the areas,” Grant said, noting a large number of animals will be finding new homes across Canada. For now, Kamloops will only be receiving two black swans, which will be introduced to the tundra and trumpeter swans and the snow geese, all living within the waterfowl enclosure upon their arrival. “They were able to handle the Calgary
weather, so I think they will be just fine here,” Grant said, noting the park has a heated fowl barn if needed during the cooler months. The director of the Calgary Zoo will be at the B.C. Wildlife Park this week. In the event the swans were unable to travel by plane, Grant was prepared to send some Kamloops staff to transport them via highway. There is also the possibility of more additions to the Kamloops park as the Calgary Zoo continues with its assessment. “Some of the animals they are looking at moving right away are primates,” Grant said. “We do not have the proper winter housing to care for them.” Grant and his staff have given the Calgary Zoo a list of enclosures available in Kamloops and animals that could be house within them. “We would be happy to look at taking any hoof stock,” he said. “We have a large area ready to go, which could house either elk, deer, bighorn sheep or that sort.”
The B.C. Wildlife Park is unable to accept the more exotic breeds of hoofed animals, such as giraffes and zebras, as they require special habitats not available in Kamloops. “We will not take any animals we could not properly care for,” Grant said. The wildlife park can also provide a home for smaller carnivores, such as a small cat, but
does not have space for the larger animals, such as bears or cougars. Zoos across Canada have reached out to help Calgary. “We are a tight knit group,” Grant said. It will take a long time to rebuild all that has been damaged in Calgary. As a result, the black swans will become permanent members of the B.C. Wildlife Park.

More visitors coming to Tournament Capital Tourism Kamloops is reporting an eight per cent increase in visitor arrivals to the Kamloops Visitor Centre in June over the same period last year. Although the predominant visitor to Kamloops is from elsewhere in B.C., noticeable growth markets include Washington state, California, other Canadian provinces and territories outside of B.C. and Alberta and Asia/Australia — all reporting at least a 20 per cent increase in visitor-centre visits over the same period last year. “We are very pleased with these numbers and to see the return in visitation from these markets,” Tourism Kamloops CEO Lee Morris said. “These increases are occurring as a result of our ongoing industry partnerships worldwide.”

Ian Webster BLACK PRESS firstname.lastname@example.org
The Kamloops Waterski Club (KWSC) is hosting the Water Ski and Wakeboard B.C. wakeboarding and barefootskiing provincial championships on Aug. 10 and Aug. 11.
Organizers are also interested in holding the provincial water-skiing, ski-jumping and trick-skiing championships in 2014. Located on Shumway Lake, the current incarnation of the KWSC club was formed in 1982 and has about
15 members. The club has existed in one form or another since the early 1970s. “After being dormant in 2008 and 2009, we’re just starting to see the club grow again,” KWSC president Paul Dixon said.
“We have quite a few families interested, which is great because it’s important that we promote water-skiing at the grassroots level.” For more information on the KWSC, call Dixon at 250372-9442 or visit the club’s website at kwsc.weebly.com.
Saddling up at BC Seniors Games By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Equestrian might turn out to be one of the highlights of the BC Seniors Games in Kamloops. “Age doesn’t matter for riding,” said Colleen Meyer, who owns the Circle Creek Equestrian Centre. “You start as a young kid and, once you’ve been bitten by the riding bug, you can do it all your life.” Meyer said the general public is often not aware of the dangers involved in riding
horses — no matter the age of the person in the saddle. “A horse could spook at any moment and throw you,” she said. “You’re working with an animal that has to be co-operating with what you want them to do.” There will be four separate equestrian events hosted at Circle Creek between Aug. 22 and Aug. 24: Reining, driving, dressage and mountain trail. Reining is often described as the
Western form of English dressage. In both events, riders guide their horses through a precise pattern of circles, spins and stops. Judges will grade each competitor on the ability to complete the pattern and the demeanour of their horse while doing so, with points awarded for calmness. Carts or buggies are strapped to horses in the driving event, in which riders navigate around obstacles. Mountain trail, held neither in mountains
nor on trails, is new to the Games this year. The event, held in an arena, requires riders to negotiate a variety of obstacles, such as balance beams, teetertotters, step-up boxes, log scrambles and water obstacles. “Watching horses walk across a 14-inchwide beam is pretty impressive,” Meyer said. The Kamloops Games are expected to attract a record number of entrants in equestrian. “I think the most in
the past is like 19. We have about 37,” Meyer said. “It might be because we’re introducing another discipline [mountain trail] and because we’re a horse community.” Go online to bcseniorsgames.org a week before the Games for a detailed competition schedule. “There’s a lot of training that goes into these horses,” Meyer said. “It’s a spectatorfriendly event. We’re working our butts off to get the word out.”
Venom,Tigers clash tonight in Game 2 of TOJLL championship Memorial Arena should be rocking tonight (July 16) for Game 2 of the Thompson Okanagan Junior Lacrosse League final, featuring the Kamloops Venom and the Vernon Tigers. Game time is 7:30 p.m. Vernon holds a 1-0 lead in the bestof-five series after earning a 9-6 win over visiting Kamloops on Sunday, July 14. Blaine Boomer, Jerome Thorne (2),
Kyle McLelland, Trent Maunder and Brady Jorgenson scored for the Venom in support of goaltender Dalan Etter, who made 30 saves. Joel Francillo was excellent in net for Vernon, stopping 46 shots. Game 3 will get underway at 7:30 p.m. in Vernon on Thursday, July 18. There might be a bus full of Venom supporters attending Thursday’s game. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for
more information. Kamloops earned a 3-1 series victory over the Kelowna Raiders in a TOJLL semifinal series. Kelowna entered the playoffs as the No. 1 seed after posting a 12-1-3 record in the regular season. Vernon — which, at 12-1-3, missed out on first place because Kelowna held the tiebreaker — rolled over Armstrong in Round 1, sweeping the series 3-0.
A Sun Peaks weekend
URTON CUMMINGS WEEKEND seemed like the textbook time to seek the Sun Peaks Resort summer experience. Well, seek and ye shall find. Tourism Sun Peaks media specialist Brandi Schier set things up — mountain biking on Friday, a hike on Saturday morning and the Canadian legend himself on Saturday night. The resort’s bike park was recently ranked ninth best in the world so, being the off-road cycling expert I am (. . .), it made perfect sense to check it out. Accompanied by Devin Knopf, Sun Peaks events co-ordinator, and Sam Egan, the resort’s marketing manager, I took to the trails. My guides explained the park has undergone a facelift, with work done to ensure people of all abilities can enjoy themselves. They were right. I’m a beginner and I was able to somewhat get the hang of things within a few hours on the mountain but, make no mistake about it, if you are trying the sport for the first time, expect to come home with at least a couple bumps and bruises. There’s a reason you sign a waiver before you sit your keister in the chairlift. I’ve been accused by buddies of having a milk-bag, peach of a body that bruises upon contact, so the welts sustained from four pretty epic bails (three of them over-thehandlebar jobs), might not be an appropriate measuring stick. (See the photo evi-
MARTY HASTINGS The Reporter’s RAMBLINGS dence on page A17.) Knopf and Egan were patient, allowing me time to regain my composure after the falls, listening as I littered the air with obscenity-filled tirades. Off we went. The scenery was fantastic, with colourful flowers in bloom, birds in the air and the sun slicing occasionally through the clouds. We stopped and chatted with a crew working on some incredibly steep berms (curved walls of hardpacked dirt) on a soonto-be-open trail. Knopf sampled the new terrain for the first time, pausing afterward to thank the shovel-toting trail artists. I walked my bike down that part of the run. There were jumps, off of which Knopf demonstrated what it looks like to catch big air, and there were hairpin turns, which became easier to navigate as the morning progressed. With my confidence starting to grow, it was time to show the boys that I, too, could get both wheels off the ground at the same time. I took some speed into a jump and ended up falling about 10 feet down a bank into some thick brush, in the process snapping a strap off the backpack I borrowed from the son of KTW editor Christopher Foulds.

Cummings wowed crowd X From A16
Eventually, we made it back down to the village. (It’s worth noting there are cross-country trails that don’t require a great deal of skill to navigate and that provide breathtaking views. Go online to sunpeaksresort.com and see for yourself.) I thanked my guides for their time and headed to the public pool for a hot tub, which was out of order, so I lay horizontally in the wading pool, tweeting and surfing Plenty of Fish on my phone. Rarely has the resort seen a sadder, creepier sight. After a revitalizing shower, I met with friends in a hotel room overlooking the village centre. The milkshakes started to flow. Milkshakes were also on tap at Bottoms Bar and Grill, one of the resort’s most popular watering holes. Word to the wise — Second World War discussions are often better left for non-milkshakefuelled situations. I’ll say no more. On Saturday morning, I texted Schier, informing her I was a no-go for the hike. The over-the-handlebar jobs had left me with a sprained wrist, and, yes, the milkshakes had taken their toll. #SinPeaks Instead, I wandered around the village — which was as lively as I’ve seen it — and took pictures, which can be found at kamloopsthisweek.com. There were three live-music acts playing simultaneously, a bouncy castle and facepainting stations for kids, among many other entertaining attractions, and an overall goodtimes festival feel everywhere I walked. Food might have taken a while to get your hands on when the village was at its busiest. Many restaurants are against non-local vendors coming to Sun Peaks to steal business
— and who can blame them? Truth be told, it only took about 20 minutes for me to get my mitts on a couple of slices of Mountain High Pizza, which I drove back in short order. Be patient. It’s not that bad. Stop whining. The hill, which would eventually seat about 5,000 concertgoers, filled up steadily throughout the day, with some staking their claim, I’m told, as early as 6 a.m. Us gluttonous media hounds were awarded the luxury of a ropedoff area semi-close to the stage, not to be occupied by the layperson. I used it as a resting place for my camera bag — why would you sit down at a Burton Cummings show? He took the stage at 6:59 p.m., one minute early, and launched into song, warning fans there would be no pyrotechnics, just good old-fashioned rock and roll. The tone-setting remark — a clear shot at present-day gimmicks-first, musicsecond rock acts — was greeted with rousing applause and cheering. Cummings knew what people wanted — the hits. American Woman, These Eyes, No Time, Clap for the Wolfman — he rolled them out one after another. For me, the essence of the concert was captured by one man, Greg Larsen, seated close to the stage, holding a sign that read “Rainbow Stage 1969.” As soon as the moustached rocker caught a glimpse of it, he acknowledged the 62-year-old fan, asking over the speaker system, “Were you actually at that concert?” or something along those lines. I rumbled my way through the crowd and yelled to communicate with Larsen, who was still glowing from the brief interaction with Cummings. The awestruck music lover was at the 1969 show in Winnipeg, a

fundraising performance for some up-andcoming band named the Guess Who, which was in need of money to tour and release a record. There was a whole demographic of people like Larsen in that crowd, reliving their youth, partying for a few hours like they were kids again. The shirtless guy — if you were there, you likely know who I’m talking about — was a treat to watch. He also makes an appearance or two in the slideshow on our website. I turned my camera on the masses and began snapping photos, capturing when I could the nostalgic moments shared by people with a common love for Cummings’ brilliant singing and songwriting. The performance was superb, if not cut too short, in my opinion, ending just before 9 p.m. I haven’t been able to track down how much it cost Sun Peaks to hire the aging rocker, but it’s safe to say it was a hefty chunk of change. Both Sun Peaks and the show’s promoter are mum on Cummings’ asking price. According to celebritytalent.net, he charges between $75,000 and $100,000 for U.S. shows. With 7,000-or-so people making the trip up Tod Mountain Road on the weekend, it seems the resort’s investment in Cummings paid off. There were plenty of wallets and purses emptied around the village

and the outdoor show proved — much more so than last year’s Kevin Costner performance — that Sun Peaks can throw a party. Most people went home happy, meaning, obviously, they are likely to come back. Colin James, by the way, will play a free concert at the Peaks on Aug. 31. Cummings had cancelled on Kamloops once. He apologized for the snub early in his set and all was forgiven by night’s end. His reconciliation with the Tournament Capital could not have worked out better for Sun Peaks, improving the summer credibility of a resort that has poured time and money into advertising itself as a four-season destination.

Kryski signs The Kamloops Blazers wasted little time signing Jake Kryski, a 15-yearold forward acquired from Prince Albert in exchange for goaltender Cole Cheveldave, 20. Kamloops signed Kryski on Friday, July
12, two days after the trade. “Jake is a dynamic two-way forward that we have watched closely this past season,” Blazer general manager Craig Bonner said. “We are excited to watch Jake in training camp next month and believe he will be a quality player for the Blazers in the near future.”
Classics nab 19 provincial medals, set 11 club records The B.C. AAA Provincial Swimming Championships were held at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver earlier this month. There were 24 Kamloops Classic Swimming club members in attendance, combining to win 19 medals, break 11 club records and establish six new Canadian Age Group Championships (CAGC) qualifying times. The CAGC will be held in Montreal from July 24 to July 29. Austin Phillips, in the 12-year-old boys’ age group, won a gold medal in the 400m individual medley (IM), silver medals in the 200m freestyle and 100m butterfly and a bronze medal in the 1,500m freestyle. Phillips set two new club records — in the 200m freestyle and 400m IM. Emily Dagasso, swimming in the 13-year-old girls’ division, won bronze in the 100m backstroke, achieving a new CAGC time. Megan Dalke, in the 14-year-old girls’ category, won three silver medals — in the 200m freestyle, 200m butterfly and 400m IM — and two bronze medals — in the 400m freestyle and 100m butterfly. Her times in the 800m freestyle and 200m butterfly were new club records. Colin Gilbert, in the 14-year-old boys’ age group, won gold medals in the 1,500m freestyle
and 200m butterfly and a silver in the 200m freestyle. All three times were new club records. Makena Sutherland, in the 14-year-old girls’ division, placed third in the 50m freestyle. Ethan Phillips, in the 14-year-old boys’ category, won gold and set a new club record in the 200m backstroke. He also achieved two new qualifying times for the CAGC — in the 100m backstroke and 400m freestyle. Eloise Ladyman, in the 13-year-old girls’ age group, won bronze in the 100m butterfly while achieving a new CAGC qualifying time. Dylana Milobar, in the 15-and-over girls’ division, set a new club record in the 200m breaststroke. Ben Branchflower, in the 15-and-over boys’ age group, set new club records in the 200m freestyle and 100m butterfly, reaching a new CAGC qualifying time in the 100m butterfly. Ethan Jensen, in the 14-year-old boys’ category, achieved his third qualifying standard for the CAGC, making him eligible to attend the Montreal event. The club won three medals in relays. The 14-andunder girls’ team of Sutherland, Dalke, Taryn MacLeod and Marina Ackermann won bronze in the 4x100m freestyle. Ethan Phillips, Gilbert, Jensen and Kieran Waterous — the 14-and-under boys’
team — won silver in the 4x100m freestyle. Gilbert, Ethan Phillips, Austin Phillips and Waterous won bronze in the boys’ 4x200m freestyle relay. The Classics are sending two swimmers — Milobar and Gilbert — to the Summer National Championships, which run from July 17 to July 20 in Pointe Claire, Que. Meanwhile, 11 members will prepare for CAGC in Montreal. Kamloops placed 11th out of 50 teams at provincials.
Open-water provincials The Classics had six swimmers at the B.C. Open Water Swimming Championships in Abbotsford on Monday, July 8. Austin Phillips won the 12-and-13-year-old boys’ two-kilometre swim and Ryley McRae was third. In the 12-and-13year-old girls’ twokilometre swim, Marina
Ackermann was fifth and Eden Saari was 11th. In the 14-and 15-year-old boys’
three-kilometre swim, Logan MacLeod placed seventh, Ethan Phillips was eighth and Carel Ackermann was ninth.

2013 BC SENIORS GAMES
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.
table tennis By Sarah MacMillan SPECIAL TO KTW email@example.com
Zone 8 co-ordinator Jarvis Wice plays table tennis three times a week and will participate in the BC Seniors Games. His love of table tennis started when he was a child. “When I was growing up, my dad got a couple of sheets of plywood and two saw horses and put it in the basement,” WIce said. Table tennis, also known as ping pong, involves hitting a small hollow ball with a table-tennis racket back and forth across a hard table. The table is divided in half by a net and points are
scored when a player fails to return the ball. Though the game sounds simple, Wice said it is mentally demanding as you have to learn your opponent’s style — some play more controlled and others play faster. Table tennis is also a very quick sport, one in which games are played to 11 points in a best-of-five format. There are six men and six women per age category allowed per zone, excluding the over-80 age category, in which an unlimited number of players can participate. Participants may compete as singles or doubles. Table tennis also has two different divisions. “Table tennis is one of the activities that have both a recreational and a competitive division,” Wice said, noting the competitive division includes all of those who
wish to play competitive, those won gold medals the previous year and, possibly, previous silver medallists as well. The recreational division is made up of all those who register as recreational players. At the end of the round-robin tournament, gold, silver and bronze medals are awarded. However, for Wice, medals are not the most important experience of the games. “I like the camaraderie,” he said. For more information regarding table tennis, contact Wice by phone at 250-833-9161, by email at bwice@ telus.net or visit the BC Seniors Games website at bcseniorsgames.org.

Now, the outgoing museum supervisor is looking to the future and planning her retirement, with her last day of work slated for July 20. “Even though, working in a museum, we’re still working for the future, not the past,” Duckworth told KTW. “If we were just looking for old stuff, we might as well go to a second-hand store.”
Born and raised in Ontario, Duckworth moved to Kamloops with her family as a teenager in 1975. She graduated from Kam High and took a two-year university transfer program at Cariboo College before heading to the University of Toronto for bachelor’s and master’s degrees in classical studies. After six years away, Duckworth wound up back in Kamloops and started working at the museum in November of 1988. Duckworth said she plans to do some exploring in her retirement — starting locally and then expanding her circle — as well as “puttering in the garden.” “I will miss the staff,” she said. “They’ve become friends and not just colleagues.” Duckworth will also miss what she called the “privileged moments” when people offer up bits of history to the museum.
“I wasn’t born here, but there’s nowhere else on the planet I know more about than Kamloops.” That’s how Elisabeth Duckworth summed up her affinity for all things Kamloops and her work for the past 25 years at the Kamloops Museum and Archives. Dave Eagles/KTW

â€˜Collector of memoriesâ€™ retires X From B2
â€œThatâ€™s when you become a bard â€” a collector of memories,â€? Duckworth said, cupping her hands as if holding something invisible and very precious. â€œTo become the recipient of that is really something.â€? In her role as museum supervisor, Duckworth wore a number of hats â€” archivist, part-time curator and even, on one occasion, amateur meteorologist. â€œSometimes, if people canâ€™t think of who to call, theyâ€™ll call here,â€? she said. â€œWe get some weird calls. â€œIâ€™ve got calls about the weather â€” people asking what the weather would be like.â€? Duckworth said she did her best to help out. â€œI think I looked out the window and said, â€˜Well, I see some clouds coming from the west, so it might rain in the next 24 hours,â€™â€? she said. â€œWe always try to accommodate.â€? Kamloops has a quirky history and Duckworth knows it better than anyone. â€œWeâ€™re right at that crossroads, so everything that happens in the province comes through here,â€? she said. â€œWeâ€™re also a tough environment, so Kamloops always had to be a little flexible. â€œIt ended up being a strength because we never had a boom but we never had a bust. â€œWeâ€™ve never been a wealthy
city,â€? Duckworth said. â€œIt just never happened here and that kind of had an effect on our culture. â€œItâ€™s been a working town and itâ€™s never had a glamorous reputation â€” you have to get to know it but, when you do, you love it.â€? Duckworth also pointed to the lack of boom and bust as something that helped Kamloops develop in a sustainable way over time. â€œBecause weâ€™ve never exploded, our growth has been very steady and well-planned,â€? she said. â€œIf Kamloops stays on its present track, weâ€™ll probably just continue to be this steady, well-grounded city. â€œAll of the sudden, people â€” people not from here â€” are going to wake up and say what a great city Kamloops is.â€? Duckworth pointed to the 1993 Canada Summer Games as a major turning point for Kamloops. â€œThat really changed the confidence of the town,â€? she said. â€œThe four-year preparations for those games, and then we pulled it off, that was a real boost for Kamloopsâ€™ confidence.â€? Duckworth expects her last day to be bittersweet. â€œItâ€™ll be strange the day I hand in my keys,â€? she said. â€œI walked through those doors for nearly 25 years. â€œI wasnâ€™t born here, but thereâ€™s nowhere else on the planet I know more about than Kamloops.â€?
Losing weight has never been easier
After suffering a back, knee, and hip injury, I had given up all hope of losing the excess weight that I had put on in the past 8 years. When Powertone opened, I was excited that I could finally do some form of exercise which didnâ€™t further aggravate my injuries and cause me more pain. I was very confident that this would work for me because I knew Irene from her health studio in Richmond and had been a steady client of Margaret hers for over 15 years. She is very professional, Very satisďŹ ed customer knowledgeable, and customizes the exercise program to achieve the best results for every individual. She also combines specialized body treatments for spot reduction. I was not disappointed! I started going to Powertone Health Studios twice a week, followed a healthy nutrition plan, both of which fit easily into my busy schedule. In 2 months, I had lost over 40 lbs*, went down 3 sizes and feel fantastic! I have more energy and a zest for living that I never thought possible. I donâ€™t find myself bored with Powertone and actually looked forward to it because not only did it firm my body, but I feel really good afterwards. I highly recommend everyone to try Powertoneâ€Śâ€Śit can give you a new lease on life!
â€˜If Kamloops stays on its present track, weâ€™ll probably just continue to be this steady, well-grounded city.â€™

to develop their skills and catch their first trout. It is annuallyy stocked with “catchable” rainbow trout that will continue to grow, which gives kids the opportunity to truly get “hooked on fishing”. Regulation changes intended to make Isobel Lake the first age-
restricted lake in the region have been submitted. At 14 hectares (36 acres), Isobel Lake is small compared to other lakes in the region. An island by one bay of the lake and adjacent marshy wetlands allow anglers to explore and interact with the environment in ways

not always possible at other lakes. The kids will enjoy cruising through the shallow channel that cuts through the marsh at the end of the bay. The parents will enjoy seeing the excitement on their children’s faces when they hook into these active trout. Eating their catch with the family will invoke a sense of p pride for the young y g anglers. g For families that don’t have access to a boat, plans are currently underway to install a fishing dock on Isobel Lake. When the fishing slows down, the family can take a relaxing walk around the lake on a well-maintained interpretative trail. A kiosk with picnic tables on the trail is a great spot to stop for lunch. For fly-fishers, an underwater point, a couple hundred metres away from the boat launch, is a good place to start searchingg for fish. Anchor down where the point borders deeper water and try the usual assortment of chironomids or nymphs. Trollers should work the edges with spinners, spoons or small Flatfish. Popular techniques for fishing Isobel Lake include a slowly trolled black leech, dragonfly nymph or Doc Spratley. Flatfish and other lures also attract the attention of trout, while a small live earthworm dangled beneath a slip bobber will be difficult for trout to ignore. Nearby Pass Lake offers a challenging sport fishery for trout up to 4.5 kilograms (10 pounds). F ILITIES: A recreation site, which is FAC
managed by the Kamloops Indian Band, offers camping at $10 per party per night. A rough boat launch provides cartop boat launching.

Last week I got to test drive the new 2013 MERCEDES-BENZ GLK 250. The redesigned GLK Diesel is a powerful 4 cylinder turbo engine. I enjoyed the double sunroof, super comfy seats, keyless entry, and AMAZING fuel economy! It was very handy to have the armrest control knob right at my ﬁngertips instead of a touchscreen display. There’s even a removable fold-out storage bin in the back to put your groceries in! I didn’t expect this, but it was awesome!
Now it’s your turn! Come test drive it yourself!

AUTO MARKET Audi has a new entry in the premium compact class — the four-door A3 sedan, which arrives in Canada next April as a 2015 model. It will replace the A3 hatchback, which is currently on sale in Canada as a 2013 model.
Audi aims to make A3 No. 1 JULY SPECIALS wheelstalk.com
udi is looking to grow its small car sales in Canada when the new A3 sedan arrives next April as a 2015 model. Now in its third generation, the A3 sedan will replace the A3 hatchback now on sale in Canada and go head-to-head wiht the new MercedesBenz CLA in a growing compact-luxury segment of the market. This new sedan is being introduced to appeal to two particular markets — China and North America. China will have its own production plant, while the rest of the world will get vehicles built in Hungary at a factory in Gyor — which is also the largest engineproduction plant in the world. This facility currently builds 1.9 million engines a year for both Volkswagen and Audi. Although no prices have been announced, look for the A3 sedan to start in the $32,000 range and become the new entry-level vehicle in Audi’s Canadian lineup. Right now, the A3 comprises about 20 per cent of worldwide sales for Audi and the aim with the new sedan is to grow those numbers significantly. Size-wise, the new A3 sedan is 24 centimetres shorter than the current A4 model. It is 4,456 millimetres in length, sitting on a wheelbase of 2,637 millimetres.
Unless you’re a true Audi-ophile, you would be hard pressed to tell the two models apart at a quick glance. Nevertheless, Audi thinks there will be a growing market for the new A3 sedan, in the 3,000 units per year range, as value-conscious buyers look at the starting price of the A4 (currently $37,800 for the
2013 model) and compare the two. Power for the A3 sedan will be in the form of three turbocharged four-cylinder engine choices — a 1.8-litre TFSI, a 2.0-litre TFSI and a 2.0-litre turbodiesel. The 1.8-litre TFSI and 2.0-litre diesel will be front-drive models, while the 2.0-litre TFSI with
quattro all-wheel drive is expected to be the bulk model for Canada. At the launch in Budapest, we sampled a couple of vehicles with six-speed manual transmissions, but Canadian vehicles. will come only with a six-speed S tronic double-clutch gearbox.

Although it wasn’t available for test drives, Audi will also offer a high-performance S3 model in Canada, which will feature a 300 horse power 2.0 TFSI gasoline engine. Designed by Quebec native Dany Garand, the A3 sedan is every bit an Audi with its signature grille making it instantly recognizable. However, it is a totally new car, built on a new lightweight platform and doesn’t have one single piece of sheet metal in common with the current A3 hatchback. Audi engineers have worked long and hard on weight reduction for improved handling and fuel efficiency and the car comes in at a sleek 2,755 pounds. With a drag co-efficient of 0.29 and the lightweight body, fuel economy and handling are first rate, although we’ll have to wait for an S3 to get our hands on a true sports sedan rather than a premium compact family car. Inside, the interior lives up to Audi’s reputation as the builder of one of the finest cabins in the world. I drove both a 1.8-litre TFSI and a 2.0-litre TDI along with a couple of other models and all exhibited refined, polished-looking interiors that would not be out of place in the luxury class. Seating is comfortable up front, less so in the cramped rear seat area, but one must remember this is a compact car, not a mid-size. Cargo capacity in the trunk is 425 litres and 880 litres with the rear seats folded. The leather seats are comfortable and supportive. Our test vehicles had the optional seven-inch touch screens with navigation and they worked flawlessly, getting us to pre-arranged destinations without a hitch. Production of the 2.0-litre TFSI engine has not yet begun, so we weren’t able to sample that model. The 1.8 TFSI produces 180 horse power and powers from zero to 100 km/h in a quick 7.3 seconds, according to Audi. Meanwhile, fuel consumption is rated at 5.6L/100 km using European test results. Audi says the 150 horse power 2.0-litre TDI does the zero to 100 km/h run in 8.4 seconds, while sipping diesel fuel at a rate of 4.1L/100 km. The diesel and gasoline models with the S tronic transmission shifted smoothly, either automatically or with the optional steering-wheel mounted paddles. Steering is electrically assisted and a bit too light for my liking. An optional feature will be Audi’s magnetic ride system that offers auto, comfort or sport mode depending upon the driving situation. Audi is packing a lot of other high-tech features into the A3 sedan including available LED headlights — a first in the premium compact class according to Audi. Blind-spot warning, active-lane assist and adaptive cruise control will also be available, as will a new emergency braking system that Audi calls City Emergency Braking. The system operates automatically below 30 km/h when a radar sensor indicates the driver isn’t reacting to an imminent collision. Most controls will be operated via a MMI controller on the centre console. In Europe, Audi Connect will allow passengers to connect up to eight mobile devices like iPhones and laptops to a wifi hotspot so they can surf the web or send emails. For audiophiles, a 705-watt, 15-speaker Bang and Olufsen sound system is optional. When it arrives next spring, the 2015 A3 sedan will be Audi’s entry-level vehicle in the North American marketplace. While it will start in the $32,000 range, it doesn’t take long for the price to escalate when you tick off several of the option boxes. Nevertheless, this sedan should appeal to more buyers than the current hatchback model and will help grow Audi sales in our market.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT
New festival on tap for North Shore Overlander Days are coming to the North Shore in August. The North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA) is launching a new summer family festival — Overlander Days — featuring myriad attractions for all ages. “We’re really excited to get this off the ground this year,” NSBIA executive director Steven Puhallo said. “In talking with businesses and people in the community, this was a major hot topic — to start building a summer family festival on the North Shore.” Overlander Days organizers are planning to incorporate a number of different attractions for the Aug. 17 event at McDonald Park. “We’re planning to have everything from a children’s area with a bouncy castle and face painting to a ‘pioneer’ area with things for the
seniors in our community to take part in,” said NSBIA director and Overlander Days committee member Greg Power. There will also be a Tastes of the North Shore food fair for visitors to sample different dishes from the North Shore’s restaurants and food vendors. “We have a great restaurant culture on the North Shore and we want to show if off,” said Mike Ward, owner of Reubin’s Diner on Tranquille Road. “This is a great opportunity for North Shore restaurants to get exposure and promote our product.” Part of the proceeds from the food fair will go to the Meals on Wheels program. Overlander Days will also feature live entertainment and a business expo. The festival will take place on Saturday, Aug. 17, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Her Journey’s Just Begun 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
