As search and rescue crews scoured the area northwest of Kamloops Lake for signs of a single-prop 172 Cessna plane or its pilot for a second day, David Cruz of TylAir Aviation Ltd. said staff at the Kamloops flight school are waiting and hoping their student will return home safely. “We’re waiting for search and rescue to hopefully find him and he’ll be well and healthy and returned to his family,” Cruz said. The pilot took off from Kamloops Airport in the four-seat training plane on Tuesday, Aug. 6, at 10:30 a.m. for what was supposed to be about a twohour flight, performing exercises in the area near Kamloops Lake. “He was cleared by his instructor to go out into this area and not venture off from there,” Cruz said. “Once those exercises were complete with the circuits, he was to return at 12:45 p.m. yesterday [Aug. 6]. When he was not at the tarmac at 12:45 p.m., the company immediately dispatched two planes to search for him in the area he was supposed to be.” X See TEENAGER A3

BEGINNING TO GET TRAIN BACK ON TRACK By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

HEN YOU’VE SPENT AS MUCH time working on the 2421 steam engine as some Kamloopsians have, you know where every bolt belongs. Despite that intricate knowledge, the folks who started this week to strip the powerplant for the heritage train will take another seven or eight weeks to take it apart. They need to do that to let inspectors check out how much work is needed to get a federal operating licence the society that runs the train needs to get it back on track. Brian Kelly, a director with the Kamloops Heritage Railway Society, said volunteers “who

know the engine inside and out” gathered at the society’s workshop, where the engine is housed, with an eye to identifying everything that needs to be done, information the city has requested and which Kelly said the society promised to provide by October. This part of the three-phase project to get the train back taking tourists throughout the Kamloops area will cost about $54,000, which the city has provided. The final price tag could go as high as $400,000 to complete the repairs, society members were told at their annual general meeting in June. That makes fundraising vital, Kelly said, and much of it is centred at his store — Kelly’s Caboose at 634 Victoria St. — where people are dropping off donations.

It’s not all cash and cheques, though. Retired railroaders and train enthusiasts have been bringing in memorabilia to be sold, with the proceeds going to the society’s fundraising campaign. So far, about $24,000 has been collected. “And this is without starting to write letters to the big corporations,” Kelly said. He’s hoping the average-person fundraising continues to be a success because, from his point of view, it’s better to go into an office to ask for money with a funding foundation established. “There are two ways you can do things,” Kelly said. “You can go to people with your cap in your hand or you can go and say. ‘Look, we’ve busted our butts, so what can you do to help us?’ “Which do you think will work best?”

E WAS diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth and, while he is not capable of doing many of the daily tasks most of us take for granted, he has accomplished more than many of us ever will. Wai Hung Ma has done a lot in his lifetime, but he is not ready to settle just yet. At 50 years of age, Ma spends each day looking for “the next step.” Unlike many of us, he takes it. “I don’t know why people do it,” Ma said, noting even when people know where they want to go, they are to afraid to move ahead. “It is easy to hold yourself back.” It is, Ma added, putting in the effort to move ahead that is the challenge. It is this premise on which Ma has focused his latest book — the idea that we are our own biggest obstacles. Ma said people get stuck in one place because they are afraid to move forward. However, he said,

it is not about taking a giant leap, but a single step at a time. Just get yourself moving in the right direction, he explained. “Whatever it is,” Ma said, “it is right in front of us.” Ma uses himself as an example. He is unable to walk, yet he recently decided he wanted to go horseback riding. So he did. Ma not only learned how to do it, but he furthered the experience by taking part in a fiveday cattle drive. It is these types of accomplishments that has inspired many in Kamloops. However, this is not what the local motivator wants. In fact, he does not want to inspire anyone. Ma’s goal is to help others inspire themselves. That is something in which he truly finds happiness. “I don’t want to be anyone’s spark,” he said. “I want to give them the spark so they can light their own fire.” Ma’s book, Breaking Limitations, helps motivate people to find inspiration within their

own lives. Everyone has gone through tough times, Ma said, but it is how they move on that defines their life. “Anybody can say, ‘That sucks,’” he said. “But, you need to say, ‘How can I fix that?’” While he does have some difficulty talking, Ma has decided to become a public speaker. He visits schools and

has spoken to the public at the Kamloops Library and would like to visit hospitals or places where people are battling depression. Ma has also taken to social media to spread his message, using Facebook and YouTube as tools to reach a broader audience. Ma’s book took him three years to write and, he said, it was a challenge in itself. However, he is proud to

Those who wish to contact Ma can do so through his Facebook page by searching ‘Wai Hung Ma’ or through his youtube page at https:// www.youtube.com/ watch?v=Kd9B5SkO3K. More information on his book can be found online at Breakinglimitations.com.

When the planes failed to locate either plane or pilot, the school called in Coast Guard Search and Rescue, which dispatched a Buffalo aircraft and a search helicopter. At KTW press time, aerial search teams had not turned up any new evidence of the aircraft, said Rescue Co-ordination Centre spokesman Capt. Pat McSorley. McSorley said a local search coordination team had been dispatched to Kamloops and the plan is to continue searching the area near Kamloops Lake today (Aug. 8) if necessary. So far, there is no visual evidence that would lead to a search of Kamloops Lake, McSorley said. “Unless other kind of evidence drives it there, you can’t really search a whole lake underwater if something isn’t visible from directly above it,” he said. While the Cessna is fitted with an emergency-location transmitter, Cruz said it has not been activated. “He hasn’t made any contact,” Cruz said. “As you can tell, we’re kind of in the dark here.” Cruz said there’s no obvious explanation for the plane’s disappearance. “These planes are required to fly at a higher altitude, at a safe altitude, so that there is no challenge with any type of obstacles in the vicinity,” he said. “The practice area where he was instructed to perform his exercises was right above the lake, so there was no obstructions in the near vicinity. “The weather conditions were near-perfect, for lack of a better word, yesterday in the morning when he departed. So, we’re unsure at this time what has caused him not to return.” Cruz said the pilot is an experienced flyer with 70 to 80 trips under his belt, more than 30 hours of solo flight time and all the licensing required to fly a plane. “He had extensive knowledge of how to fly a plane,” Cruz said. Cruz said the pilot’s disappearance is “deeply troubling” to the school, which opened for business in June. “It’s something that really is having its toll on everyone involved.”

Marchand Jr. named a judge By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Len Marchand Jr. will take his place at the front of a courtroom on Tuesday, Sept. 3, when he joins the roster of judges assigned to Kamloops. Marchand, a lawyer in the city for the past 15 years, was appointed to a judge’s role by the provincial government to help ease a backlog of cases. Marchand replaces Sheri Ann Donegan, who was appointed to the B.C. Supreme Court on June 6. While the appointment does not add to the number of judges assigned to Kamloops, it will “avoid the risk of adjourning a number of matters that are presently scheduled to proceed,” according to an email from the Ministry of Justice in response to KTW questions about how the backlog was going to be eased by the appointment. Graham Kay, a Kamloops lawyer and member of the Trial Lawyers Association of British Columbia, said the appointment is “helpful in that they’re replacing a judge but, in the long run, it’s not very helpful.” Kay said Kamloops has been “short judges for quite a bit of time,” noting at one point the city had five full-time and

four part-time judges. It now has four fulltime, one half-time and one part-time judge. Kay added Judge Hermann Rohrmoser will soon leave the bench as he retires at the end of August. Kay said the backlog in Kamloops courts is getting worse; while the numbers are decreasing, the time involved with each matter is increasing. The provincial Family Law Act revision passed in March was touted as helping ease delays but, Kay said, that has yet to be seen. He noted one of the act’s provisions was an emphasis on out-of-court settlements. “They cost money and, a lot of the time, people don’t have that money,” Kay said. “And one of the things we’ve found in mediation is a lot of people want their lawyers there, so that’s not reducing the costs.” Adding night or weekend court “is an interesting concept,” Kay said, one that has been implemented in other communities. “One of the considerations is court staff are unionized, so you would need changes in collective agreements for people like registry staff and sheriffs,” he said.

“And how much are lawyers going to want to give up time with their families?” Another reason for a backlog comes from how Crown counsel deals with some matters, in particular breaches of probation or parole restrictions. Kay said he can resolve a breach charge easier in the Lower Mainland than in Kamloops “just because of how Crown approaches it.”

OPEN HOUSE

Who is Len Marchand Jr.? The son of former federal environment minister Len Marchand Sr., Marchand has experience in criminal law, but civil law has long been his focus. The partner at Fulton and Company served on a committee that made recommendations on appointments to the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He was also involved in the work done to resolve residential-school claims and was involved in filing a similar class-action lawsuit for day students at residential schools in 2011. The Tk’emlups and Sechelt Indian bands were the prime movers on that suit, noting day students also suffered abuse in the schools, but were not included in earlier claims settlements. In announcing Marchand’s appointment, B.C. Attorney General and Minister of Justice Suzanne Anton praised his “exceptional work on aboriginal issues.” Other measures announced recently to address caseload pressure in the court system include expanding the availability of child-protection mediators to rural and remote communities, creating a driving-notice review board to deal with delays in traffic court and appointing an acting chair to an online civil-resolution tribunal to reduce costs, complexity and delays for users.

Car-share in Kamloops?

t

Arjun Singh says interest is peaking after meeting By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It could start with a single truck, but a car-sharing program is looking more and more likely for Kamloops. Kamloops Coun. Arjun Singh said a small group of interested citizens has formed a planing committee to look at what type of car-share program would work best for the city. “We will see how it develops,” Singh said via email from the UK, where he is on vacation. “I am pretty optimistic about the prospects for car sharing in Kamloops.” A car-share program was one of several ideas dreamed up at the Kamloops Idea Festival Singh hosted earlier this year. “How it kind of works is usually it takes place in an area with a lot of residential density, where

lots of people are around,” Singh said. “And instead of having to buy a whole car that sometimes just sits there, you only pay for a car when you need it. “A common scheme is that you purchase a share and then you sort of pay by mileage or pay by hour.” Unlike car-rental companies, car-share programs generally offer vehicles at lower rates and make quick trips to the grocery store or doctor’s office more financially feasible. Singh said a car-share program might also appeal to residents who can afford an older vehicle, but would rather drive a car that’s newer and wellmaintained. “The car co-op itself takes care of cleaning and maintaining the vehicles, so they’re cars that are very well maintained, easy to

maintain,” Singh said. “So, you’re not in a dangerous situation where you maybe paid $1,000 for a vehicle, but the axles are going and the steering wheel could fall off.” There’s an environmental component as well. While co-op members have the option to drive, they may choose to do so less often because there isn’t a vehicle in their driveway. Depending on the model, the car-share program could also offer members trucks and larger vehicles for use. Singh said the idea of buying a truck for common use seems to be popular “as a first step down the car-sharing road.” Singh held an informational meeting on car-sharing programs last week and another meeting on the subject is being planned for September.

Help the Y help the kids By Cavelle Layes

STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops residents are being asked to help put a smile on a child’s face this year. The Kamloops YMCA-YWCA has begun its second annual Empty Toy Box Project and is looking for new toys to fill its bins. Last year’s event was a major success, allowing the local women’s shelter to provide birthday and Christmas toys to the children staying there. However, program coordinator Jacquie Brand said, they are beginning to run low once again. The shelter is looking for new toys, preferably non-violent in nature, suitable for children from newborns to age 16. While all areas of children are in need, Brand said the Y normally runs short on boys’ toys for kids ages five and older — and espe-

cially for teens. “It is easy for teen girls,” Brand said, explaining the Y can give them women’s items. “It is harder with teen boys. They often just get socks,” she said. One of the biggest hits last year were gift certificates, which allowed mothers to pick out something exactly suited to their child. “One person donated gift certificates to Ruckers,” she said, noting they were popular as it allowed a number of children to be taken out for an afternoon. “With our budget, that

isn’t something we are able to do,” Brand said. Donations like these not only give the children a nice gift, but help create memories as well. Brand said they try to make the shelter as much of a home-like setting as possible. Being able to provide children with a special treat now and then helps establish that. Instead of choosing which toy they think would best suit a child, Brand said they allow mothers to pick out the gift themselves, with wrapping paper provided. “It is a nice feeling

for the mothers as well,” Brand said. This experience, however, relies on the help of the community Brand said. This year, the Y has eight boxes set up at local businesses around the city — Chapters, YMCA-YWCA Childcare Resource & Referral, Downtown YMCA-YWCA, Lil’ Monkey’s Treehouse, Lizzie Bits, North Shore YMCA-YWCA, River City Gymnastics and Tumbleweed Toys. Donations will be accepted through Aug. 31.

How support for mine was lost due to those with the mine

I

’VE BEEN STRUGGLING with the Ajax mine situation. On one hand, I have had two sons, failing to find meaningful, well-paying work in Kamloops in the past decade, return to their home province of Ontario. Both are doing well and have good jobs with a liveable wage. I wish they were able to do that in Kamloops but, at the time, they weren’t. So, I have looked at Ajax as something that might allow other families to see their sons and daughters be able to stay in the city they want to call home and find work that pays them enough to contemplate the reality of a real life. I went to a public forum on the Ajax proposal and left disappointed that it seemed to be an all-too-familiar Kamloops event — preaching to the converted. I didn’t feel much was gained from it, other than the opportunity to pat each other on the back and reassure one another they were fighting the good fight. Still, I saw the mine as a good thing, something that might be a boost to our local economy. As for all those Aberdeen residents whining they didn’t want a mine in their backyard, well, I bought a house in Ontario with a beautiful field abutting it that, within two years, became a subdivision. My parents wisely did not buy a house in my hometown because my dad didn’t believe the realtor when he said not to worry about that hunk of land nearby.

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL It was zoned agricultural. A shopping mall was built there. However, the most recent news to come out about the mine has me rethinking my position. Any time a story combines the words “Ajax mine” and “sonic boom,” it’s worth paying some attention. I’m referring to stories by KTW reporter Andrea Klassen about a city-commissioned report that speculated air blasts could cause sonic booms that would be heard through most of the city. I’m no longer convinced this mine is a good thing. And, if that’s not enough, the reaction from the Ajax folks to these stories has me pretty sure this entire project, despite the economic boom and jobs it could create, isn’t worth it. Consider this: Before most of you had read your Thursday, Aug. 1 KTW paper, Ajax staff were on the phone accusing KTW of a misquote. When pushed, that “misquote” became a “we don’t think you accurately portrayed our position” statement.

Pushed a bit further, manager of external affairs Yves Lacasse insisted that a plan he presented to KTW — that he would only reply by email to emailed questions — was his idea of the best way to handle the situation of KTW coverage of Ajax. Now, I’ve been a journalist long enough to know that when someone goes from “you misquoted me” to “you didn’t say what I wanted you to say” to “I won’t talk to you anymore,” you’ve hit a nerve. That reality has fueled my belief this mine project is not good. So, here’s when I sit right now and, while I’m just one person, I’m a mom who worries about my kids’ economic future. I want to believe this mine is a good thing. But, given the way the local office has handled its public relations — let’s not forget Lacasse’s statement that it really doesn’t matter what our local council says — there is something wrong here. Maybe it’s time KGHM’s headoffice staff in Poland come over and answer questions their local spokespeople don’t want to. And maybe it’s time those same head-office people start to realize Kamloopsians won’t be wowed by some “big names” telling them everything is just hunky-dory. It’s not. The moment the Golder report mentioned sonic booms, it stopped being a matter of we simple folks just not understanding things. We get it. KGHM doesn’t. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

They’re called smartphones, but the way some people use them is anything but smart, giving us all legitimate cause for concern about public safety. A new poll that shows 64 per cent of adults in B.C. own a smartphone also reveals, more disturbingly, about 18 per cent of those who do consider themselves “strongly addicted to the device.” Predictably, the majority who placed themselves in that particular category describe their addiction as “manageable.” It’s a rare addict, after all, who acknowledges his or her addiction is galloping out of control. That all changes, of course, when the addict is faced with incontrovertible evidence — usually some severe crisis or tragedy — that calls for an immediate change in behaviour. The question is: Should we, as a society, be expected to pay the price of such a crisis or tragedy, particularly when it’s something like an accident caused by driving without due care and attention? Smartphones offer entertainment and information through a multitude of apps and they have very practical uses in terms of communication, particularly in emergencies, that have, so far, merely scratched the surface of their potential. But, it’s no news they also function as a distraction. According to the recent poll, those who describe themselves as addicted estimate they spend an average of 2.5 of their waking hours staring at their diminutive keypads and screens. If that 2.5 hours were spent in one block of time, it might be a different matter, but it’s spread throughout the day, usually while the users are multitasking in some way. We should all be more aware of the imminent dangers such devices present and make sure we are actually controlling them — not the other way around. The human animal is flawed and there is always the temptation to make just one short call, check one detail, complete a half-finished text or glance at that incoming message. A quick look, a few more words, just this once — who could it hurt? The answer is not only ourselves, but many others as well.

KGHM is corporately responsible to Kamloops

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

A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online

Re: Story: More ore means Ajax assessment delay: “I’m sorry, but I couldn’t have any less confidence in any of these big-business propositions. They care nothing about our home.” — posted by Rocko Martin

Editor: During all this jostling for position and while the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) approval process runs its course, we have seen that Poland’s KGHM has been corporately responsible to Kamloops in the following ways: 1) The purchase of Sugarloaf Ranch and retention of all employees. 2) Working successfully in arrangements made with New Gold to mutually build a pump house on Kamloops Lake (through the Ajax mine property).

3) KGHM Ajax also allowed New Gold exclusive use of two buildings on Ajax property. 4) Although the B.C. EAO has not required human-impact testing be done to gain approval, KGHM Ajax is doing it. To further exemplify that corporate responsibility, KGHM Ajax has just publicly announced it has discovered (and is investigating) a new ore body. 5) KGHM Ajax also stated it is looking at increasing the distance between the mine facilities and the city.

KGHM Ajax has been corporately responsible to Kamloops thus far and corporately responsible to its neighbour and bordering mine, New Gold’s New Afton operation. Therefore, KGHM Ajax has shown Kamloops it is here to open the old mine and, yes, make money. That’s the nature of any Kamloops business. Les Evens Kamloops

Re: Story: Ajax letter ‘disappointing’: “Aberdeen is a hot spot for unstable terrain movement. “Damages to homes range in the thousands of dollars as tests provided information that thousands of gallons of water is moving under the ground in this area. “The City of Kamloops spent thousands of dollars to try to stop the shifting of homes due to this water. “Blasting from Ajax could certainly be very dangerous venture. “Movement from the blasting could certainly exacerbate this problem, causing a major landslide.” — posted by Sophie Smith

No reason not to have Ajax perform mine blast test Editor: Re: (‘Ajax rejects calls for Ajax blast test,’ Aug. 1): I can’t imagine anyone in our beautiful city would not find it necessary to experience (in other words, hear and feel) a fullsize Ajax blast test. Experiential learning is the most informative — and with it we would have a much clearer picture about what we would be in for if the mine were to be approved. Does this really seem unnecessary? To me — and, I think, most Kamloopsians — this is very necessary. I wonder if Yves Lacasse, Ajax’s

manager of external affairs, finds it “not necessary” to first test the water before he dives into a lake, or “not necessary” to first meet the person he’s going to share his house with for the next 30 years. Why wouldn’t Lacasse want to be fully transparent about such important awareness for Kamloops’ citizens to have? There seems to be plenty of money to solicit various high-profile people to help with Ajax’s publicity efforts and plenty of money to hand out to various local charities to win favour, so why not spend some money to really let us experience what the future holds in this one aspect of

potential effects of having a mine in our backyard? We see through Lacasse. Many people see and may not really care because money speaks louder than Lacasse’s very obvious attempts at manipulating public opinion. Lacasse may have actually fooled some of the people, but the majority of residents in Kamloops care very much about the health of their community — even more than the proposed economic boon the mine would supposedly offer.

TRU not interested in partnering with private educational companies By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Although other universities are opting to partner with private educational companies, it’s not a road Thompson Rivers University is interested in travelling. Christopher Seguin, TRU’s vicepresident of advancement, said the university is “not exploring privatized teaching” and “not in contact with Navitas, Study Group or any others.” Navitas and Study Group are private companies involved in recruiting international students for universities. Study Group works with Royal Roads and Study Group with Simon Fraser University and the University of Manitoba. Concerns about a private educational venture arriving at TRU were sparked in late 2011, when the university’s faculty association sent an email to its members expressing concern one of the companies might add TRU to its roster. A freedom of information request earlier this year, asking for any documents of contact between TRU and the two companies, or any other private educational providers, generated a series of heavily redacted emails.

The emails came from a redacted source at Study Group and were sent to university president Alan Shaver. They indicate the company was interested in discussing what it could offer. One email has the author telling Shaver an international study centre set up by Study Group “is at no cost to TRU. Study Group pays all the recruitment and marketing costs, as well as all international study-centre set-up and operating costs, including costs of instruction, facilities rentals and student services access fees. Study Group would look to you for premises it could rent from you, preferably on campus.” It noted it would share tuition with TRU and hire teaching and administrative staff only with the university’s approval. An email sent late last year from Shaver to the redacted recipient advised Study Group TRU administrators “are well-informed” about the company and that its model “functions well for some institutions who need students, but we are not presently in that position.” Seguin said Navitas offered to recruit students for TRU. “But, we never got back to them,” he said.

Private donors help launch health centre

In about three months, a new health centre will be ready to accept patients — decidedly non-human ones. After an official groundbreaking earlier this week, work is moving ahead on the Fawcett Family Wildlife Health Centre at the B.C. Wildlife Park, a facility that has been long planned for, said David Edwards, the park’s manager of education and special events. The $850,000, 3,200-square-foot project is being paid for by a variety of sources, with Rea and Ron Fawcett the major donors, handing over a cheque for $300,000. Mark and Ellen Brown also contributed $100,000 through their personal resources, their company — Northern Trailer — and its parent company, Horizon North Logistics. Northern Trailer is also providing modular buildings that will be part of the new centre. Lafarge and Redi-Mix are donating the concrete needed for the project, Edwards said, and the City of Kamloops also added to the fund. “It’s really come together through a lot of people,” Edwards said. The centre replaces an existing, smaller one and will have improved equipment to care for the animals.

STAN OLSEN

ROBERT BRUCE BOYD

Surrounded by his family, Stan Olsen of Kamloops, BC passed away on August 4, 2013 at Royal Inland Hospital. He is survived by his wife, Barbara and their children Bob (Terry), Shirley (Boyd) Gallant, Doug (Marian), and Dorothy (Stan) Barron. He is also survived by nine grandchildren, Brant and Kendra Olsen, Jeff (Cristin) and Krista Gallant, Meghan and Mitchell (Mel McMillan) Olsen, Melissa (Tyrone) Hamm, Teresa (Pat) Grant, and Payton Comazzetto. He also leaves behind Àve great grandchildren, Madison and Makaela Gallant, Emelia Olsen, and Jack and Alex Grant. He was predeceased by his brother Harvey, his parents, Darce and Billie, and his grandson, Brennan Comazzetto.

March 17, 1964 ~ August 3, 2013

Dad was born April 11, 1928 in High River, Alberta where he attended school until the family relocated to Beiseker, Alberta. Stan worked with his father, Darce in the family garage selling machinery, cars as well as becoming an excellent mechanic. He was a perfectionist with his vehicles and he was a devoted “Dodge” man. He met and married his wife Barbara in 1950 and remained in Beiseker until they moved the family to Kamloops in 1964. With a heavy heart, we announce that Bruce Boyd, loving father, son, brother, uncle and friend passed away Saturday while doing something he loved and surrounded by family. Left to mourn are his loving daughter Thea and her mother Nolene, mother and father Ann and Bob Boyd, brother Andy (Kim and sister Lien), sister Karen (Richard Van Camp) adoring nephews and niece (Wes, Colton and Maëlle). Predeceased by his soul-mate Sara. Bruce, an avid outdoorsman, felt happiest on the water and it brings peace to his family knowing his spirit rests there. We would like to thank all the kind people who came to our aid. Donations may be made in his memory to: The Fraser River Sturgeon Conservation Society, 604-664-7664 ext. 107. The Celebration of Bruce’s Life will take place on Saturday, August 10th, 2013 in the Kamloops Funeral Home Chapel. Please bring your favourite photo of Bruce to his celebration. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home 250-554-2577

Dad was an extremely hard working man and was employed as a truck driver sometimes as an owner/operator as well as working for various companies including Royalite, Gulf Oil, Nu Road Construction, and Gallant Trucking. His real passion was with his family as he took particular pride in his children and grandchildren always encouraging and interested in their achievements. His sense of humour is his legacy as he was always ready to tell a good joke and could have a laugh even during his last hours. Stan was an avid Àsherman and hunter and loved to reminisce about the days when he and his buddies would pack up their horses and trek miles over the glaciers into Pinto Lake located in the Rockies. In recent years, Dad loved to start his day watching the “Weather Channel” followed by “Red Green” then a game of crib. He was always up for a game of “Stop the Bus” or “Bid Wist” whenever a challenge was presented. He enjoyed watching old John Wayne movies and never missed a Toronto Blue Jays game even if it meant having to put the card games on hold. He occasionally would slip out to the casino where he would enjoy himself playing a few slots but was always cautious not to donate too much of his hard earned money. He also loved the bird sanctuary he created in his back yard and was quick to scare away anything that might threaten a newly built nest. He could often be found sitting in his back yard enjoying the sounds of the birds and his surroundings. As Dad requested, a simple celebration of life followed by a luncheon will be held for his friends and family at 11:00 am, Saturday, August 10th in the hall at St. John Vianney Catholic Church, 2826 Bank Road. In lieu of Áowers, donations may be made in Dad’s memory to either the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation, 311 Columbia Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 2T1 or the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 South Whiteshield Crescent, Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9.

Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

ROBERT, (GAGNE) BARBARA CAROL June 3, 1957 – July 29, 2013

Rise Up Slowly . . . Rise up slowly, Angel. Do not leave me here, alone, Where the warmth of mortal essence Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Wrap me in a downy cape Of sunshine, warm with love, And kiss a tear-stained mother’s face With moonlight from above.

Rise up slowly, Angel. I cannot let you go. Just drift softly ‘midst the faces, In sorrow now bent low.

Speak to me in breezes, Whispered through the drying leaves, And caress my brow with raindrops Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Then, wait for me at sunset, Beside the lily pond, And guide me safely homeward To your world, which lies beyond.

Ease the searing anger, ..... Born in harsh, unyielding truth That Death could steal my loved one From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel, For I cannot hear the song Which calls you through the shadows Into the light beyond.

Just spread your arms to take me In reunion’s sweet embrace, And we shall soar, together, To a different time and place.

It is with great sadness that wee announce the sudden passingg of Barbara Robert, 56. Barbara will be greatly missedd and forever loved by herr (Predeceased Father) Aurrellee Gagne and survived by herr (Mother) Verna Gagne, (Bestt friend and long time Partner)) Alfred Gray, (Son) Michaell Robert, Daughter Crystall (Darryn) Martin, (Grandson)) Dayton Davis, also (Step-Granddaughter) Emma Martin n and many other family andd friends.

Water Music on the River Thompson By Dale Bass

The venerable Wanda Sue paddlewheeler will be the stage for musicians as they perform a free concert on the South Thompson River on Sept. 1. KTW file photo

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

On July 17, 1717, King George took his seat on a barge for a trip up London’s Thames River. Also floating on the river was another barge with 50 musicians performing — for the first time ever — the Water Music suites by George Frederick Handel. Whether Handel did it to make up for failing to fulfil some royaltyordered duties or simply to please the king, the result was a success as George asked for the hour-long music to be played three more times before he returned to his palace. Now, 296 years later — give or take a few weeks — 30 local musicians will re-create this musically historic moment as they board the venerable Wanda Sue paddlewheeler to perform the iconic Handel piece on Sunday, Sept. 1, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m., at Riverside Park. Cvetozar Vutev, music director of the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops,

said the idea for A Concert Fit For a King came to him one day when he happened upon a video of a similar reenactment on the Thames about five years ago. Having played the Handel work many times, Vutev thought it might be a good piece to bring to the ears of Kamloopsians. He contacted Gunnar and Gail Slack, owners of the paddlewheeler, and, after some discussions and getting the tape measure out to ensure the boat will accommodate the musicians, the plan was made. The Wanda Sue once took tourists up and down the South Thompson River before it was taken out of the

city by the Slacks and moved to Shuswap Lake, where it ran tours for about a year before the couple docked the craft at their Valleyview riverfront home. Vutev said the paddle-

wheeler is in great shape and there’s enough room for the musicians of the Brandbenburg Orchestra — supplemented by the chamber-music group and some music students — to fit comfortably

while they perform. Slack has offered his time to drive the boat down to the pilings of the old harbour by the beach on the South Thompson River, where he will tie the craft up for the hourlong concert. Musicians will dress in period costume, thanks to the folks at Western Canada Theatre and Pandora’s Costume Box — and King George will also be on hand.

SUN PEAKS SPARTAN

For Sparta — but at Sun Peaks Sun Peaks’ mountain terrain will be utilized to its full potential during the upcoming Spartan Beast race on Saturday, Sept. 28. As the only location in Western Canada for competitors to run the challenging 21-kilometre obstacle race, the event is drawing a large and diverse crowd of athletes from across Canada, the Pacific Northwest and other parts of the North America. Only one level down from the most difficult Spartan race offered — the subtly named Ultra Beast Marathon — racers will encounter 30 obstacles throughout the course, which includes Sun Peaks’ Top of the World 2,152-metre summit. Unlike other hobby obstacle runs, competitors race against the clock and each other, wearing timing chips for accuracy. The weekend also includes the popular five-kilometre Spartan Sprint race with 15 obstacles on Sunday, Sept. 29. Sun Peaks’ unique mountainsprint race course and venue is expected to draw approximately 1,000 would-be Spartans from across the region. Sept. 29 will also include a Spartan Kids race with all proceeds going to the national charity KidSport. To increase intensity for competitors, the Spartan Race doesn’t supply a course map and creates venue specific obstacles meant to challenge racers — on top of the regular obstacles which include fire, mud, water and barbed wire. Spectators are encouraged to watch and cheer on competitors. Five obstacles and the beginning and finish lines of the race course can be viewed from Sun Peaks’ village. Registration is open until Sept. 25. To register for the Spartan Beast or Spartan Sprint at Sun Peaks, go to sunpeaksresort.com/ spartan.

Maurice Parobec is thankful to finally have the heart to compete Dave Eagles/KTW

By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T WAS MIDNIGHT ON JUNE 8, 2008, WHEN MAURICE PAROBEC’S PHONE RANG. It was the most important call of his life. Hours later, he had a new heart — and, for the first time in years, he was on the road to recovery. Parobec had cardiomyopathy, a condition that ran on the male side of his family for generations. He had already lost his grandfather, father and a number of uncles to the disease and, before the operation, he wasn’t falling far behind. In the months before Parobec received the transplant, the disease had begun to take over. His heart had enlarged and, as a result, his kidneys began to shut down and his liver stopped working. Parobec was fighting a daily battle he knew he was quickly losing. While the surgery was success-

ful, Parobec said it took him longer than normal to recover. “There was some question whether I would pull through,” he said. “I was pretty far gone.” For 15 years, Parobec’s illness had prevented him from taking part in physical activities — leaving him with very little muscle. While it made recovery more difficult, Parobec refused to give up. “I know how precious life is,” he said. “And, if you don’t do it now, you might not get a chance to ever do it.” Parobec began to play pickleball, baseball, tennis and table tennis, among many other sports. He became more active than he had been in high school and he was feeling better than he ever had. “Because you get that extra chance in life, you put everything in,” Parobec said. “Before, I would say, ‘That is too hard,’ and just give up. “Now, nothing is too hard.” Parobec became interested in

the Transplant Games after hearing a woman speak about them at one of the transplant centre’s educational days. Parobec had never competed in an event of such a high calibre, but decide to sign up out of pure curiosity. “I wanted to see how I compared to other people who went through the same thing,” he said. He began training immediately and was soon stepping onto the field with competitors from across Canada. Despite being his first time in the Canadian Transplant Games, Parobec brought home six gold medals and four silver medals after competing in 11 events, including singles and doubles table tennis, ball hockey and volleyball. Everyone competing in the Games has undergone some form of transplant surgery, Parobec said — either lung, heart, kidney, liver, pancreas or a combination thereof. While he loved the thrill of competing, Parobec said the experience was about much more than standing on top of the podium. “It is the atmosphere,” he said.

“Everyone there has a similar story to tell.” Being in the same place as hundreds of people who have all stared death in the face is a powerful thing. To say Parobec is hooked on the Games would be an understatement. After training for months in Arizona and Kamloops, he has just finished competing in his first World Transplant Games in South Africa and is now awaiting the upcoming 2013 B.C. Seniors Games in Kamloops. Parobec competed in tennis singles, badminton singles, table tennis singles, volleyball and golf while in South Africa. The World Games normally attracts 2,500 top athletes. This year, the Canadian contingent was 70. The competition alternates between national events and world events each year, Parobec said. Next year’s Canadian competition is set to take place in Moncton, N.B., with the worlds in Argentina in 2015.

Classic Cost an issue for transplant athletes haul in Montreal X From A16

There were 10 Kamloops Classic Swimming club members at the Canadian Age Group Championships, which wrapped up on Wednesday, July 31, in Montreal. The Classics finished 36th overall, won five medals and set eight new club records. Colin Gilbert, in the 14-year-old boys’ division, established four new club records, winning gold in the 1,500m freestyle and 200m butterfly events, placing second in the 100m butterfly and 800m freestyle and seventh in the 100m freestyle. Megan Dalke, in the 14-year-old girls’ category, set three new club records, winning bronze in the 200m butterfly, placing fourth in the 100m butterfly and fifth in the 200m individual medley. Makena Sutherland, in the 14-year-old girls’ age group, set a new club record while finishing fourth in the 50m butterfly. Dylana Milobar, in the 16- to 18-year-old girls’ division, was seventh in the 50m breaststroke and 10th in the 100m breaststroke. In the 14-year-old boys’ division, Ethan Phillips finished sixth in the 200m backstroke. The 15-and-under boys’ 4x200m freestyle relay team — Gilbert, Ethan Phillips, Carel Ackermann and Austin Phillips — placed ninth. The 15-and-under boys’ 4x100 freestyle relay squad — Ackermann, Gilbert, Ethan Phillips and Ethan Jensen — finished ninth. Ethan Phillips, in the 14-year-old boys’ age group, finished his five-kilometre openwater swim race in one hour 48 minutes and 38 seconds. There were 902 swimmers from 160 different clubs across Canada in Montreal for the meet.

“If somehow I could afford to go to them all, I would, but I don’t know,” Parobec said. Canadian competitors must fund their training and travel costs themselves. Unable to work, Parobec relies on disability assistance.

While he would like to continue competing as long as his body will allow, his bank account most likely will keep him from doing so. “You just never know what is going to happen tomorrow,” he said. Because of his transplant, Parobec must take multiple medications each day.

Although it’s commonly accepted that oil and antifreeze are

If he misses one, he risks serious complications and possible death. The pills required to keep him alive also make Parobec 10 times more likely to develop cancer. Parobec said he has escaped death once, but never knows what the next day will bring. For now, he will continue to com-

pete and keep living his life the best he can. Parobec said he competes for his brothers, children and grandkids to prove the disease can be beaten. His brothers are both fighting the disease. Neither of them qualify at this time for a transplant.

In a continued effort to encourage higher rates of recovery, BCUOMA has built a strong support network across the

not household garbage we can simply throw out, more

province. Today, participation includes 219 brand-

than one million litres of used oil ends up in BC

owner members, 39 collectors and processors,

landfills every year. When you consider that it only takes one drop of oil to contaminate a

500+ return collection facilities and more

million drops of water, the problem is clear:

than 4,000 generators. In addition,

there’s just too many drops to count, too many to ignore. BCUOMA is a not-for-profit organization that encourages British Columbians to responsibly recycle used oil, oil filters, oil containers, used antifreeze and antifreeze containers. Since the launch of the program in 2003, British Columbians have done an exceptional job of recycling their used oil materials.

ONE DROP MAKES A DIFFERENCE.

BCUOMA is expanding its successful ambassador program this summer – with two teams of ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling. By recycling your used oil and antifreeze products, you’re playing an important role in preserving our environment for future generations.

COMMUNITY

Native author returning to Kamloops Monique Gray Smith has come a long way from the 11-year-old girl who began drinking with friends during school lunch breaks. Now a successful author, consultant and motivational speaker, Smith has been sober and involved in her healing journey for over 20 years — and she’s coming back to Kamloops. “So many wise and wonderful people helped me during my recovery [from alcohol addiction],” she said. “What a gift to be able to give back to the community by sharing some of what I have learned.” Smith will be speaking about her life and reading from her new book at an event at the downtown Kamloops TNRD Library today (Aug. 8) between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Tilly: a Story of Hope and Resilience is finding an audience beyond those in recovery or members of First Nations communities. Gray Smith’s message is powerful and universal: When we know and honour ourselves and our communities, we are capable of deep healing and achieving what our hearts most desire. Published as a work of creative non-fiction, Tilly is loosely based on the author’s life experiences. “Like Tilly, I began

to drink at the age of 11,” Smith said. And, like Tilly, it didn’t take long before Gray Smith’s drinking was a problem. Gray Smith, too, was blessed with encounters with people who helped her not only find a way to recovery, but also to a deeper understanding of the history of indigenous peoples in Canada. A thoughtful and articulate communicator, Gray Smith said she is constantly amazed and delighted by how powerful Indigenous teachings, families and communities can be. “It’s striking just how resilient our communities are,” she said, describing how her life’s work as a consultant and motivational speaker now focuses on ways for communities to heal and move forward. “Nurturing, loving, and fostering the potential of each and every child is one of the most profound ways to make a positive difference in the world.” In Tilly, characters speak about the ‘60s Scoop, residential schools and TB hospitals. They also talk about the importance of traditional teachings, dreams, family and community. Though written from an indigenous perspective, the lessons learned apply equally to anyone interested in building stronger communities.

What’s hotter — hundreds of vintage and tricked-out muscle cars or rack after rack of professionally barbecued ribs? If you answered something like, “Neither, I like both of those things equally,” then this is the weekend for you. Saturday, Aug. 10, is when two Kamloops summer institutions — one very young and one well-established — will cross paths, creating some sort of chromedout eclipse dripping in barbecue sauce. Kamloops Ribfest and Hot Nite in the City will bring thousands of people into the city centre — and both events are hoping to capitalize on one another. Hot Nite in the City is celebrating its 19th anniversary in 2013, while Ribfest is back for the second consecutive year.

WHAT’S GOING ON IN THE KITCHEN? Kamloops Ribfest is back for its second year, taking place this weekend at Riverside Park. On Saturday, Aug. 10, with Ribfest in full swing, Hot Nite in the City will be going on just a couple of blocks away, on Victoria Street.

‘It just adds to the value of the experience’ X From B3

Bryce Herman, spokesman of Ribfest — which runs Aug. 9 to Aug. 11 — said organizers of the two events have been in contact since last summer, when they also shared a Saturday date. “Hot Nite really wanted to be involved,” he said. “They said, ‘Wow, what a great addition to what we do. It gives our people something else to do.’” Herman said Ribfest is trying to iron out the details of a potential show-and-shine featuring some of the Hot Nite in the City vehicles at Riverside Park on Sunday, Aug. 11 — the last day of Ribfest. “It just adds to the value of the experience for them [people who take in both events],” he said. “And, beyond Ribfest and Hot Nite, there are a lot of other great opportunities for people in the downtown.” Neither event charges a fee for admission, but the food at Ribfest is not free, Herman said. In addition to barbecue and collector cars, both Ribfest and Hot Nite in the City also feature live entertainment and family-friendly activities. For more information about Hot Nite in the City, go online to hotniteinthecity.com. For more on Ribfest, visit kamloopsribfest.com.

THIS IS THE LIFE Two big events. Three days. One downtown. Kamloops Ribfest runs from Friday, Aug. 9, to Sunday, Aug. 11, in Riverside Park. Each day, live music will be performed between 11 a.m. and 8:30 p.m., with a different act taking the stage each hour. There will also be a Family Fun Zone, featuring tumbling demonstrations, gymnastics, crafts and a fish pond, as well as prizes and giveaways. Hot Nite in the City runs on Saturday from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Victoria Street between First Avenue and Fifth Avenue, with trophies being presented beginning at 4 p.m. The event will also feature live music throughout the day on two stages. Hot Nite in the City also includes a poker run on Friday, Aug. 9, which will begin at 3 p.m. and run until 8:30 p.m., with the last stop coming at the Lansdowne Village A&W restaurant.

INTERESTED IN PLAYING AND/OR REFEREEING?

LOCAL VIEWS

The art — or science — of concentration CMHA Kamloops has a message for your mind

P

ro golfer Tiger Woods requires complete silence as he concentrates on a golf ball to hit with the flat edge of a driver. Pro baseball player Miguel Cabrera of the Detroit Tigers uses a round bat to hit a round ball curving and dropping at speeds of 150 km/h while 50,000 fans scream wildly. In pro sports, concentration — even with many distractions — is everything. In this column, we frequently refer to the brain as “the organ of mental health” and, although that is true, it is simplifying things considerably. The brain coordinates a seemingly infinite amount of information, processes and stimulations at the same time — and on some days, we notice distractions more than others. There are many schools of thought about the brain’s ability to concentrate on some stimuli and ignore others, but one things all experts agree on: If we were unable to filter out noise and focus on one thing, we could not interact very effectively with the world around us. The processes in brain cells that allow us to do that have remained a mystery for a long time, but we are beginning to understand it better now. Brain cells do not actually touch each other. Finger-like structures in neurons reach out and the material that connects one neuron’s fingers to another is called the synapse. The synapse basically allows neurons to pass the right kind of information to the right receptor on a neighbouring brain cell. It is not helpful for visual information to reach your nose, for example, although it is helpful for smell information and visual

information to get to the respective organs as close to the same time as possible. With a complex and sensitive experiment done that School of Medicine at the University of Southern California, scientists were able to study what happened to the communication between nerve cells when people shifted their attention away from or back to visual stimulation. They were able to determine it is in the synapse that the brain focuses attention on visual information while reducing and ignoring auditory information — thus allowing one to focus on what they were seeing — and vice versa. In other words, the synapse connections of nerve cells allows

the brain to be more precise in receiving and interpreting information while at the same time reducing the amount of disruptive information that comes from other senses. If you enjoy meditation — and this study tells us all why we should — another way to think about this is our perception of the world around us is shaped by and altered by the ability of our synapse to sort out what is real and what is relevant from all the noise around us. It also gives us a better insight into how difficult it must be for people with delusional mental illness to understand and interpret gestures, facial expression, voice tones and other information that many take for granted.

On those days when you are struggling to concentrate on the task at hand because you are too tired, too hungry or too whatever, your frustration will not help you get focused and will actually hurt the process. Rather, take a few minutes to meditate, relax and get back into emotional and physical balance again. After all, when Cabrera is stepping out of the batter’s box between pitches, he is not really adjusting his batting gloves, he is clearing his mind — his synapses, actually — and he does it better than most at his level. Thank you to Jerry for asking us about concentration and how it happens. If you have a question, write to us at kamloops@cmha.bc.ca or follow us on Twitter @CMHAKamloops and you may see your question in a future column!

WEEKLY CROSSWORD

Music — on the water George Frederick Handel’s Water Music is a set of suites that was originally performed for a huge royal party held by England’s King George I on July 17, 1717. The party took place on a barge packed with guests and musicians, floating down the Thames. Now, the Chamber Musicians of Kamloops are looking to recreate that atmosphere with A Concert Fit for a King — during which 30 musicians will play Handel’s composition on the Wanda Sue paddlewheeler in the water off Riverside Park. The Chamber Musicians of Kamloops is a group of professional musicians who promote chamber music in a variety of different settings.

A&E The show, which will be free to attend, is slated for 7 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 1 and the Riverside Park beach.

Improv night is back Project X Theatre is bringing its popular Improv Night back once again — this time to Prince Charles Park. The show will run on Friday, Aug. 9, featuring Project X’s improv troupe alongisde X Fest cast members. Showtime is 9:30 p.m. Tickets are $25 and are only available at the door beginning 30 minutes before the show.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPE ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Reserve judgement for another time, Aries. When someone needs your advice, simply offer it instead of lecturing on what should have been done. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 There’s not much you can say or do to change someone’s mind. Instead of getting worked up about it, simply move on to someone who is more receptive. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, few things rile you up more than dishonesty. But don’t allow this person to get the better of you. Take the high road instead. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, it’s alright to tell someone the truth. However, sometimes you have to soften your words. Not every person is receptive to brutal honesty at all times.

Fill in the blank cells using numbers 1 to 9. Each number can appear only once in each row, column, and 3x3 block. Use logic and process of elimination to solve the puzzle.

LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, when you introduce a new idea, expect it to be met with some opposition. However, later in the week others will start to see the merits of the idea.

SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, although you have attacked a problem from many angles, you can’t seem to come to a resolution. Someone will offer the “ah ha” moment this week. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, boredom might reign early in the week, but there are plenty of memorable activities on the horizon. Surround yourself with friends. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, it is OK to reminisce about old times, but trying to relive your youth is not advantageous. This week, make a few new memories that you can be proud of. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, even though others around you don’t always act as you would hope they would, you have to look at the merits behind their actions. Don’t be critical. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 A problem proves a tough nut to crack, Pisces.You’ll find a way to get to the center of the issue and resolve things by the weekend.

VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 The saying goes, “If you can’t beat them, join them.” For you,Virgo, these are words to live by this week. Don’t be the odd person out; join with the group. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, check your figures again because something simply isn’t adding up in your finances.You may need to ask a friend to go over things with you again.

Darcie Hossack’s spaghetti with baby zucchini and ricotta is a recipe the KTW food columnist never wants to forget.

Summer — the season to taste and serve

C

ARROTS. Beets. Broccoli. Salt. Pepper. Butter. Summer. I’ve been trying all week to think up a recipe that uses any one of the in-season veggies that keep coming to our door as part of a weekly produce plan (aka: Thursday Veggie Box). We could make soup — borscht, even. A casserole. Veggie lasagna. Fresh salad. Cooked salad. Some kind of buttery sauce in which to smother the vegetables themselves. I simply can’t do it, though. These veggies, cooked until just tender, then dotted with butter and seasoned with nothing but flaked kosher salt and freshly ground pepper to bring out their natural, from-the-garden, qualities, are the beginning of so much glory that while we wait for a pair of chicken breasts to finish their last seconds of grilling (free range chicken, also needing nothing but the slightest nudge towards perfection), I stand in front of the stove, pluck-

DARCIE HOSSACK

Bon APPÉTIT ing buttered carrots from the pot and stuffing them into my mouth until Chefhusband reminds me I’m getting close to stealing from his share. Protesting, but really just making yummy sounds, I lift the lid on another pot, this one filled with smashed baby potatoes (I forgot about the potatoes!) and am soon wrapped up in a momentary pocket of garden-season nirvana — the kind that only comes around when the produce we’ve just bought is so fresh, local and in-season that I could

stuff myself silly with them and never wonder whether we bothered to think of a main course. All of this leaves me back where I started. Needing a recipe and thinking “season to taste” isn’t really something other cooks will think is worth clipping. Anyone can season to taste, right? I pause, think fondly of a few friends who would surely ask me to explain what exactly I mean by season-to-taste, then keep thinking. Finally, it comes to me — a memory I can’t quite put my taste buds on. It’s from two summers ago, while on a rare and much-needed long weekend break spent roaming through our favourite places in Vancouver’s English Bay. It involves pasta. And, when I close my eyes and roll the thought around on my tongue, I taste spaghetti, twirled on a fork. There’s fresh ricotta. And . . . meatballs. Meatballs?

I shake my head. It’s the right memory, but not the way I want it to go — not even the way it should have gone back then. And, so, looking into our weekly “fresh box” to see what’s left, the perfect huddle of baby zucchini are practically offering themselves up. From there, it doesn’t take much. Just a quick stop in the dairy aisle for a bit of ricotta. Then, a pound of the best possible spaghetti gets tossed into a pot of salted water. The little zucchini are sliced into coins and, in just a little more time than it takes to cook noodles, we have dinner — and I have my recipe. It’s a take on pasta primavera that’s so fresh, so seasonal, so simple, that even those who usually read-but-don’t-cook may want to clip this page — or grab a pen and recipe card. I’m know going to. This is something I already don’t want to forget.

Spaghetti with baby zucchini and ricotta 1 lb. good-quality spaghetti (such as Barilla) 7 baby zucchini, sliced into coins 1/2 bunch parsley, stems removed, finely chopped 1/2 bunch chives, finely sliced 2 cups ricotta cheese Canola oil to sauté zucchini Flaked kosher salt/freshly ground pepper In a large pot of boiling, well-salted water, cook pasta to al dente. Meanwhile, prepare zucchini by heating a small amount of canola oil over mediumhigh heat. Add zucchini and sauté for about two minutes, turning over, and seasoning a little with salt and pepper. When pasta is ready, drain and transfer back to pot. Stir in ricotta and herbs, then toss in zucchini. Adjust seasoning. Transfer to a serving bowl and serve immediately.

The truth about antioxidants Responsive, Reliable, Professional.

By Jerique Arqueza IHA DIETETIC INTERN

This just in: Eating fresh salad on a regular basis can improve your health.

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

E

very time I walk into a grocery store, drug store or even a book store, I see advertisements, products and books promoting the newest antioxidant supplement. Internet, newspaper and magazine articles tout the wonderful, healthful effects of a new product almost every week. Extracts from green tea, pomegranate, Acai berry, Goji berry are a few of the “magic pills” available in the market today. They are advertised to contain a significant amount of antioxidants and other disease-fighting properties. Many pharmacies and stores also carry a variety of antioxidant supplements such as Betacarotene, Vitamins C and E and selenium, to name a few. How can we decipher ones, if any, are worth getting? Antioxidants are naturallyoccurring food compounds that protect cells from damage, and thus play a role in preventing disease. Cell damage can happen natu-

rally from aging, but can also be due to stress or exposure to environmental pollutants such as cigarette smoke. Some people may turn to antioxidant supplements hoping that effects of aging and cell damage can be reversed just by taking a pill. In reality, taking supplements alone does not result in the same improvement in health when compared to eating a healthy diet rich in antioxidants. It is not a single food nutrient that does the trick. Rather, the combined effect of eating a variety of whole, natural foods. Natural foods are one of the

best ways to promote health and cell repair. Canada’s Food Guide recommends adults aim for seven to 10 servings of colourful, antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables a day to help meet your needs for vitamins, minerals and other nutrients. The required seven to 10 servings can also reduce your risk of obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer. Incorporate these foods into tasty dishes such as colourful, chunky soups or a fresh salad. To improve health and overall vitality, make sure to eat enough fruits and vegetables everyday.

FAITH

Digging deeper into the ‘God particle’

T

HE PUBLISHing industry would find it well nigh impossible to produce a full list of books either under the subject or on just the title “God,” being innumerable as they are. In our generation, books like Experiencing God or Knowing God have sold in thousands, signifying current interest in the unseen and the unknowable personality who still eludes human comprehension. One of the bestknown words in the Greek language is theos, simply translated as “God.” Many of us are familiar with its derivatives such as, “theocentric,” “theocracy” or “theology.” The ancient Greeks had a quite different view of God than the Jews and Christians. To the Greeks, theos

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH spoke of an ordered universe. Their gods were sustainers of all that existed and guarantors of natural order. They were assumed to be impersonal forces. Later, in Homer’s time, gods were thought to be eternal, though their actions and reactions were marked by human frailties. They were unable to alter the fates of people viewed as sources of evil. When a god was offended, he supposedly

sent trouble on people. To Aristotle, a god was the final cause of all that exists. The Jewish-Christian view of a personal God is foreign to Greek mythology. For this, one has to turn to the biblical scriptures to take in the personal, eternal and infinite God. The scriptures contain some general references to god. When King Herod pretended to be a god, the true God punished him with death. At least twice Apostle Paul was mistaken for a god because he performed miracles. Scriptures condemn any exaltation of a person or a thing to the position of God. By tracing theos, one can learn much about the God of the Bible. In Christ, God came down among people. Hence, Jesus is

called “Immanuel, God with us.” People understood God mostly by the things said about Him. He was seen as the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Following on from this statement is the truth He is also our God (Romans 1:8). Another aspect of the relationship with God is His position as a Heavenly father. Christ often referred to God as his Father. The apostles, too, echoed this truth in their writings. Paul referred to Christ as the God of all comfort. He was seen as the God of hope, joy and peace. It is the genius of the New Testament that Jesus is identified as God in the flesh. According to both Paul and Peter, Jesus is both God and Saviour,

the one and the same person. Moreover, Paul wrote that Jesus is supreme over all. Just as the Scripture is full of references to God, so are other literatures. H.G. Wells, novelist and historian, said, “Until a man has found God and been found by Him, he begins at no beginning, he works to no end. “He may have his friendships, his partial party loyalties, his scraps of honour. “But, all these things fall into place, and life falls into place, only with God.” Oxford don and Cambridge professor C.S. Lewis wrote: “There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, ‘Thy will be done,’ and those to whom God says, ‘All right, then, have it your way.’”
