E. COLI IN CHEESE MAY HAVE LED TO DEATH Authorities confirm 11 people became ill from cheese made at Gort’s in Salmon Arm By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Eleven people in B.C. and Alberta are recovering from eating E. coli-contaminated cheese manufactured at a Salmon Arm farm. Meanwhile, there may also be a connection between the cheese and the death of a person within the Interior Health Authority region. Dr. Rob Parker, medical officer of health for the Interior Heath Authority, said eight cases have been identified in the province and four others across the border. Of the eight B.C. cases, four involve people who live within the authority’s region — including the one who died. Parker said IHA officials are continuing
their investigation of the death and are not able to confirm the E.coli bacteria caused it or contributed to it. However, he did confirm the deceased had eaten cheese from Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm, had the symptoms of E.coli infection and the bacteria was confirmed to be the one identified as coming from the farm. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), which was at Gort’s Gouda Cheese Farm on Saturday, Sept. 14, to inspect it, has issued a recall for more than a dozen of the cheeses produced there. Parker said other products made at the farm are not affected. Although the first case was documented in July, the strain was not identified until recently, when a cluster of cases

were diagnosed, tests conducted and the specific markers indicating the E.coli strain determined. It took time to pinpoint the cheese as a potential cause, Parker said, because it can take days for symptoms to occur and often even longer before people see their doctor. “So, when we are interviewing them, we are often asking them
what they ate two or three weeks ago.” He said none in B.C. mentioned the cheese product until further interviews were done based on information provided by the four Albertan cases after the link to the same E.coli strain was identified last week. Some of the Alberta people indicated they had recently visited the Okanagan.
Parker said the CFIA’s inspection led to the farm owners stopping production and distribution of their raw-milk cheeses. The federal agency issued its recall late on Tuesday, Sept. 17, noting it could be expanded depending on further investigation at the facility. Parker said he saw the summary of the Alberta cases on
Monday, Sept. 16, and contacted the CFIA, which said it “had to sort out what cheeses were involved.” On Tuesday morning, Parker said, “it was clear there was a risk to people eating the cheese” and a decision was made to alert the public at about 11:30 a.m. The teleconference took place at 3 p.m. and would have occurred
even earlier had the Provincial Health Services Authority — through which co-ordination with the province’s health authorities is done — been able to get the logistics pulled together. The recall notes the products with lot codes 122 to 138 were sold in both provinces and through Internet sales from May 27 to Sept. 14. Some of the packaging may not have the lot code or indicate it was made from raw milk, particularly those sold from deli counters where clerks package it.

Prowler arrested Kamloops Mounties
LAW & ORDER were called to Juniper on Tuesday, Sept. 17, after a homeowner saw a man running through backyards at about 10 p.m. The caller confronted the man, who threw rocks at him, jumped into a vehicle and fled, almost striking the homeowner. An officer respond-
ing to the call saw the vehicle and tried to stop it but, by the time she had turned her cruiser around, the man had sped off. Officers and a police dog searched the area and, about 45 minutes later, a man was spotted walking on Highway 1.. He was arrested and is in custody, facing several charges, including dangerous driving, refusing to provide a breath sample and assault.
Fire snuffed before spreading Prairie Coast Equipment (above) was the site of a fire on Tuesday (Sept. 17) night. Machinery at the Chilcotin Road business in the Mount Paul Industrial Park was damaged, but firefighters managed to stop the fire from spreading to the building. The investigation continues.

The quiet Campbell Avenue neighbourhood in North Kamloops was the scene of a double stabbing late Tuesday (Sept. 18) night. As of KTW press time, two men were in Royal Inland Hospital — one man in stable condition and one man in critical condition. Dave Eagles/KTW
‘Let me in — I’ve been stabbed!’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Two men are in hospital — one in grave condition — after a double-stabbing on a quiet North Kamloops street on Tuesday, Sept. 17. Emergency crews were called to the 400-block of Campbell Avenue at about 11:45 p.m. after several calls to 911 reported two
men in distress. Mounties arrived at the scene and found two men suffering stab wounds on different parts of the street. A Campbell Avenue resident who did not want her name published told KTW she was startled by one of the victims. “He bangs on my door and he yells, ‘Help, I’ve been stabbed!’” she said. “‘Let me in, I’ve been stabbed!’
“He stood outside screaming and yelling until the cops came.” “I didn’t open my door. I just called 911 and let police and ambulance handle it.” The woman spent much of Wednesday morning scrubbing clean her blood-stained porch and tidying up the mess left by first responders. “It was all left out here on my deck,” she said. “I just scrubbed it and there’s
still blood on it. “You do a good deed and you end up cleaning up the mess.” She said the street is relatively crime-free. “It really is,” she said. “This is the first incident we’ve had in forever.” Kamloops Mounties said both victims were taken to Royal Inland Hospital and underwent emergency surgery. As of KTW press deadline, one
of the victims is in stable condition, while the other is critical. Police believe the victims knew their attacker and that the stabbings were targeted. No arrests have been made. Anyone with information can call Mounties at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for updates to this story.
TRU has 148 employees whose salary exceeded $100,000 in 2012 By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
He may have the title of president, but Alan Shaver wasn’t the top-paid employee at Thompson Rivers University last year. The largest total remuneration package issued in 2012 went to the late Wesley Koczka who, with a combined salary and expenses, topped out at $285,742. Of that, he had expenses totalling $108,498, according to the university’s financial statement headed for review at its board of governors meeting on Friday, Sept. 20. Koczka, who died in February, had been the university’s associate vice-president international and CEO of the university’s
World Global Operations. Shaver didn’t even come in second; that spot went to Ulrich Scheck, provost and vice-president academic, who had a combined package of $274,920, composed of $201,617 and expenses of $73,303. In the 2011-2012 fiscal year, Scheck’s salary was $201,251 and his expenses were $54,119, according to the provincial government’s database of public-sector salaries. Koczka’s salary during that same fiscal year was $157,013 and his expenses were $156,533. Shaver’s salary last year was $201,301 and his expenses were $15,464, giving him a financial compensation package of $216,765. In the 2011-2012 fiscal year, his salary was $202,431 and his
expenses were $107,518. Cliff Neufeld, the university’s vice-president of administration and finance, had a package worth more than Shaver’s as well, with a salary of $199,406 and expenses of $21,297 for a total of $220,703. His salary in the 2011-2012 fiscal year was $199,897 and his expenses were $30,856. There are 148 TRU employees who earned more than $100,000 last year and 22 who had a salary and expenses package that was greater than $150,000. The university’s executive compensation reporting for the period of April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2012, also noted benefit packages valued at: Shaver, $8,751; Scheck, $8,848; Neufeld, $8.878 and Koczka, $7,595.

B.C. mayors are predicting disaster when Ottawa cancels medical-marijuana growing licences in thousands of B.C. homes next spring in favour of new commercial producers. They warned
federal officials at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver this week that the transition — without any teeth to enforce closure and cleanup of the soon-to-be-illegal home grow-ops — will push them further into the grip of organized crime
and leave cities with a legacy of contaminated houses. “You created this nightmare,” Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman told Health Canada representatives, noting Ottawa refused to identify licencees so cities could inspect them and ensure they are safe.

He said the federal government therefore has a moral obligation to help ensure medical pot-grow houses are made safe so subsequent buyers don’t unsuspectingly move their families and children into homes with serious mould problems or electrical and firecode violations. “Fix the problem you helped create,” Banman demanded. “These people are going to close these homes down, they’re going to slap a little paint on and nobody is going to be the wiser. That is borderline criminal.” Health Canada would take steps to remediate if it were tied to properties contaminated with asbestos, he suggested, so it should do the same when,

under B.C. law, past use of a property as a growop must be disclosed for health reasons. Other mayors, including Chilliwack’s Sharon Gaetz and Kelowna’s Walter Gray, predicted medical growers won’t stop voluntarily. “Dave’s not here, man,” quipped Burnaby Coun. Nick Volkow in a rendition of Cheech and Chong. Asked by the mayor of Mission what will be done to ensure growers shut down, Health Canada’s Todd Cain said licencees will be notified they must cease production, decommission and remediate. “Beyond that, we’re really relying on them to follow the law,” he said, drawing laughter.

New medical marijuana grown in large-scale commercial operations will be sold at various price points, federal officials say. â€œWhat weâ€™re hearing from producers is there will be quite a range,â€? Health Canada spokesman Todd Cain said. He said producers expect to offer between four and 30 different strains at different prices, some of them as low as about $3.50 or $4 a gram, adding thatâ€™s significantly lower than what medical pot users previously feared. â€œSupply and demand, once the market is established, will drive the pricing,â€? Cain said. Pot distribution will be done only by mail or courier, not through any pharmacies or retail outlets. In response to questions about pot being lost

MEDICAL MARIJUANA PRICE TO VARY in the mail, Cain noted the existing federally run medical marijuana plant in Saskatchewan already ships product through a combination of courier and mail with a â€œgood success rate.â€? Shipments will be in the form of dried marijuana only. It will be sent in individual airtight packets of 30 grams each, limited to a maximum of 150 grams per shipment. Cain predicted the new system will close loopholes that allowed abuse while ensuring qualified medical users can legally get marijuana. Users who are prescribed marijuana by a doctor will be permitted to possess 150 grams or a 30-day supply, whichever is lower. There are 35,000 existing permitted medical pot users in Canada.

Councillor: â€˜Dude, itâ€™s not going to workâ€™ X From A6
â€œTheyâ€™re going to take that letter and roll it in product and theyâ€™re going to smoke it â€” thatâ€™s whatâ€™s going to happen,â€? predicted Mission Coun. Dave Hensman. He demanded to know how Ottawa justified licensing 700 legal medical pot grows in Mission â€” a community of 30,000 people â€” and said he opposes his municipality spending
a dime to clean up the problem. â€œIâ€™m not going to shut them down and youâ€™re not going to shut them down. So, dude, itâ€™s not going to work.â€? Cain said privacy restrictions still prevent Ottawa from disclosing permitted grows. He said Health Canada could begin certifying legal producers within weeks and some of the expected 50 to 75 producers to be chosen nationwide are expect-
ed to be in operation well before the official April 1 launch date of the new system. More than 100 licence applications have been received and about 40 are from B.C., most of them located in the Lower Mainland. Hensman said the Lower Mainland doesnâ€™t need that many commercial growers, suggesting more be located elsewhere in Canada.

Of the immortals, incumbents and idiotic ideas in Ottawa
NOTHER SERIES OF ideas that aren’t big enough to warrant their own columns, but are worth noting: • The folks charged with protecting us — often from our own stupidity — have issued plenty of reminders that school is back for another 10 months. That means a lot of realities, not the least of which is that most every school area in the city has the 30 km/h speed limit in its proximity. Some Kamloops drivers need to review what that means — anything faster than that between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. is speeding. Now, the local police, when issuing the reminder to the public, based it on the excitement some of the younger kids have to be back in class and the subsequent forgetfulness to heed all those road-safe rules they learn. That’s a valid concern, but one that isn’t really focused on is the situation one will encounter when driving near secondary schools in Kamloops. Too many students are in that “I’m immortal” stage of life and think nothing of wandering out across the street, usually with their head down while texting the friend, who is probably waiting on the other side. I watched this happen on a daily basis on Ninth Avenue for too long and have encountered it when heading to other secondary schools, as well.
DALE BASS Street
LEVEL The focus is always on back to school but, trust me, this kind of teenaged stupidity goes on all school year long — and even into the post-secondary stage. Drivers who use the Summit Connector can attest to that as they watch Thompson Rivers University students cross the four lanes of traffic there to get to class. Get some exercise. Walk to the corner, wait for the light and cross like you should. • There’s no city council meeting this week, as most of the councillors we all elected in 2011 are off at the Union of British Columbia Municipalities convention in Vancouver. Having our city-hall reporter, Andrea Klassen, around on Tuesday because of this led to some musings about who might be thinking about running in next year’s election. Which led me — and this is why some of these ideas never become columns — to wonder on what platform the incumbents will run.
Just what exactly have they done in the past almost two years other than talk about too many dogs and not talk about too many mines? They’ve got about a year to find some compelling issues to speak out on and grab some headlines they can turn into election-campaign propaganda. Can’t wait to see what they come up with. • And, sticking with politics just to round out this column, does anyone other than me and some of my closest friends see anything wrong with our federal government creating a searchable database of sex offenders? Sure, it would be good to know if they move into the neighbourhood but, so far, Kamloops Mounties have done an equally good job of alerting us — when we needed to be alerted. But, I think back to when I was a child living across the road from a park and there was a man who frequented it with the express purpose of exposing himself. My parents called the police. Some of the neighbours headed over with baseball bats. Guess who found the guy first. That’s not the kind of society we want to be and it’s not the society Prime Minister Stephen Harper should be doing anything to create. email@example.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com
Leaked documents indicate BC Hydro is planning a 26 per cent rate increase over the next two years. While the B.C. Liberal government says the rate hike will not be that high, this is at least the third time in the past year that there has been indications of a massive BC Hydro rate increase in the works. There are several concerns about this, whether or not the 26 per cent increase comes to fruition. It’s no secret that Hydro has to come up with billions of dollars to continue to upgrade the electrical utility system it operates. The infrastructure, some of which goes back to the 1960s or earlier, needs attention. Hydro also wants to build the Site C dam on the Peace River, which would cost billions in itself. At the same time, Hydro has been handicapped by the BC Liberal government in two very important areas. First, it has been required to make massive dividend payments to the province, its only shareholder. These have been used to keep the provincial budget from dipping deeper into the red. While there may be some justification for the province occasionally taking a dividend from Hydro, the size and regularity of its demands are unprecedented. When a corporation needs to raise billions for capital projects, it makes sense that dividends be cut back or even eliminated. If Hydro was a private sector corporation, that is likely what it would be doing, in order to have at least some of its own cash to spend on infrastructure. In addition, the dividends are highly political. They are used to keep the deficit down and allow politicians to boast about B.C.’s low income tax rate. This boast ignores ever-increasing Hydro, ICBC and Medical Service Premium rates, all of which must be paid by most B.C. residents. The other handicap Hydro has is that it has been forced to buy run-of-river power from small contractors at rates far in excess of what it costs to produce its own power. The provincial government needs to stop interfering in Hydro’s business, and let it run the electric utility in the efficient manner.

THIS WEEK Speak up You can comment on any story you read @ kamloopsthisweek.com
A selection of comments on KTW stories, culled online
Re: Story: Two men stabbed on Campbell Avenue: “The lady is saying she does a good deed? “What? She did nothing. “Others had called police before she called. “All she is doing is complaining about having to clean up the mess. Sad.” — posted by Ryan Jeck
Will get-rich-quick cash be worth the misery? Editor: Re: KTW’s front page story of Sept. 17 (‘Protest numbers match those at Ajax meetings’): This letter is directed at the very young and so naive James Arko, who shared some of his thoughts about the proposed Ajax mine issue during the rally at Thompson Rivers University on Sept. 12. What an ignorant young person he is if he thinks he is going to survive 23 years in this town with no ill side effects from this proposed mine. He will be in his late 20s or early 30s and he could be dead. He could contract cancer of the mouth, throat, lungs or any other part of his body. He could have emphysema or one of many other serious and disabiling lung
problems directly related to the pollution this proposed mine will create. There are just too many effects to a person’s body to name in a short letter, but I am sure Arko is savvy enough to do some web surfing to find out. After all, he has the knowledge of at least 17 years on this earth. He was quoted as saying: “It’s mainly old people here and it’s not like they are going to be around here in a bit.” They might not be around here “in a bit,” but he may be and so may his parents and maybe even a baby or two of his own — and those are the people who will be drinking the polluted water and inhaling the acidic air. Is he willing to take the chance of killing his parents, his friends and his yet unborn
“She almost sounded proud of herself.” — posted by Rosalind Sampson “Some people, hey? “Thanks for being there for your friend.” — posted by Kathy Walkus
Re: Letter: More confused than ever about Ajax mine: “It doesn’t sound like letter writer Frank is confused at all. “It sounds like he has nailed this thing right on the head! “Nice letter.” — posted by Mike Marshall “Well said, Frank. “We just don’t need to be sacrificing our city’s health for KGHM’s profits.” — posted by Ann-Marie Hunter
children for, what, a few dollars of promised get-rich-quick money? If Arko does get a job in the mine and he survives the 23 years it is forecast to operate, he probably won’t be healthy enough to find another job anywhere else when the mine closes. Has he thought that far ahead? Arko and his friends might want to look into the effects of similar mining operations in other cities and towns. He and his friends need to do their homework so they can make informed opinions. Somebody once said, “I gave up my health to get some wealth and now I’d give all my wealth to get my health back again.” Judie Rix Kamloops
Comments made by Ajax supporter and Thompson Rivers University student James Arko (middle) have drawn the ire of some KTW readers. KTW file photo
Editor: Regarding Thompson Rivers University student James Arko’s comments about those involved at last week’s protest against the proposed Ajax mine: Arko was quoted by KTW as saying: “It’s mainly old people here and it’s not like they’re going to be around here in a bit. “They need to create jobs for their grandkids and their grandkids after that, and this mine will open up about 500 jobs for the next 20 years.” Does Arko kiss his grandma with that mouth? He needs to be careful or some of us will give him a whack with our canes. Gene Wirchenko Kamloops
Without those ‘old people,’ the young folks wouldn’t exist Editor: Re: KTW’s front page story of Sept. 17 (‘Protest numbers match those at Ajax meetings’): Oh, poor James Arko. Let us try not to be so harsh on him as I am sure he meant well. Let’s analyze his statement and see if there is some way it made sense. Arko said: “It’s mainly old people here and it’s not like they’re going to be around here in a bit. They need to create jobs for their grandkids and their grandkids after that, and this mine will open up about 500 jobs for the next 20 years.” What is unclear is whether he is talking about the planet or people on the campus.
Yes, Earth is full of old people who are not going to be here as long as young people. So are people on the campus, I suppose, and they are working hard to educate students like Arko. What is also unclear is how quickly does Arko expect all these old people to make generations of grandchildren? Apparently, he expects this to happen in the next 20 years. Additionally, if it wasn’t for all these “old people here,” Arko would also not be here, which I suppose would have made my breakfast less-distracted as I would not have to write this outraged response. Because I live in a democratic system
(though it is a system that gives a large uninformed population the ability to often make poor decisions), I am willing to let or not let Ajax go ahead, though I will certainly vote against it if we are allowed to have a referendum. The Ajax tagline of “500 jobs for the next 20 years” should fall under scrutiny by even the least-scholarly TRU students. It will employ roughly the equivalent of one-fifth of the Thompson Rivers University student body until they are 40. Nigel Hanks Kamloops

Fewer lines and wrinkles, thicker hair, stronger nails and denser bones.
Collagen is the key. During youth, you have a rich abundance of collagen which prevents wrinkles from forming, gives skin elasticity, helps create thick, beautiful hair, strong nails and denser, more ﬂexible bones. But over the years, collagen diminishes.
Starting at age 21, collagen diminishes by 1% per year. By age 30, signs of reduced collagen on skin, hair and nails become visible, not to mention the increased risk of fracture for bones. Now, genuine collagen regeneration is possible with clinically proven BioSil™. BioSil, helps your body to generate its own collagen to provide support for denser and more ﬂexible bones as well as beautiful skin, hair and nails.

Education with international ﬂavour By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Grade 12 is a big school year for most students but, for Kate Sullivan, the reasons are a bit different than most. Back to school didn’t mean rejoining her friends at Beattie School of the Arts. Instead, it meant packing her bags and flying more than 9,000 kilometres to continue her education in Bolivia. Kate’s year-long trip comes
courtesy of the Rotary Youth Exchange Program. She is one of four students from the city taking part. Also spending the year abroad are Sahali secondary students Brett Cosco, who is in France, and Narain Spolia, who is in Sweden, and Claire Ferguson of South Kamloops secondary, who chose Austria. While Kate said she was excited to leave and learn in a new location, her trip had a
stressful start when, the day before she was to leave on her exchange, she was still wondering when her passport would arrive. It came that day and she was ready to head out the next. In a blog she is writing to record her adventures, Kate noted she was in school the day after she arrived in Bolivia — and quickly realized she needs to work on her Spanish. X See FOLLOW A13

Sorrento musician dies Popular banjo player Gene Bretecher is mourned By Barb Brouwer email@example.com
Gene Bretecher died on Sunday, Sept. 15, after falling out of his boat while fishing on Shuswap Lake.
Bluegrass musicians are expressing their sorrow following the death on Sunday, Sept. 15, of accomplished banjo player Gene Bretecher of Sorrento. Bretecher was fishing on Shuswap Lake some 30 metres from shore when he fell out of his boat just before 1 p.m. Bretecherâ€™s wife, Linda, saw her husband fall into the water and called for help. A retired RCMP officer and former dive team member was on the scene in minutes and helped pull the 74-year-old Bretecher from the water. CPR was performed and emergency personnel arrived on scene a short time later. But, efforts to resuscitate Bretecher were unsuccessful. Chase RCMP said Bretecher was not wearing a lifejacket at the time of
guitar player.â€? Bretecher taught a number of different courses at Sorrento Centre every summer for more than a decade and at a variety of old-time fiddle camps. â€œIt almost sounds so patent to say, but he smiled a lot,â€? Stevens said. â€œThat was a thing about Gene, thatâ€™s what he enjoyed, the camaraderie and the music.â€? Another wellknown singer-songwriter and musician, Blu Hopkins, described Bretecher as a gentle man and an inspiration. â€œGene touched so many people. â€œIn all the time I knew him and from all the people who played with him, I have never heard a negative comment about him,â€? Hopkins said. â€œHeâ€™ll be sorely missed by all of us.â€?

the accident. The death of the talented and popular bluegrass musician has touched many in the music world. â€œI toured with him in a band for quite a number of years, in Canadian Whitewater, and he was just one of
my favourite people in the world,â€? said popular bluegrass musician Chris Stevens, who shared travel adventures with Bretecher across the globe. â€œHe was a consummate professional, a wonderful banjo player and flat-picking

Blazersâ€™ lineup ďŹ lled with new faces By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
EFORE GENERAL MANAGER Craig Bonner spoke with KTW about the future of the Kamloops Blazers, he talked about the recent past. â€œDo I have regrets? No. Because I never really promised we were going to win the Memorial Cup,â€? said Bonner, seated comfortably in the corner ofďŹ ce at Blazer headquarters on Mark Recchi Way. â€œDo we want to win the Memorial Cup and did we hope to win the Memorial Cup last year? Absolutely. Yes, we fell short, but I really feel like weâ€™ve turned the table and weâ€™ve been a competitive team and a top team in Canada for the past two years. â€œLast year, with the exception of Portland, if things were different against Portland and the situation was different with what went on in
Portland, we would have been in Saskatoon [home of the 2013 Memorial Cup].â€? Bonnerâ€™s jab at the Winterhawks organization, penalized harshly by the Western Hockey League for violating player-beneďŹ t regulations, suggests it will be a long time before the two clubs are sending each other Christmas cards, but the sixth-year GM has a more important ďŹ ght on his hands for the time being â€” replenishing a lineup that has been decimated. â€œThe reality is weâ€™ve lost probably nine of our top players,â€? Bonner said. â€œYou look at any team in our league or in the NHL or wherever and take ďŹ ve of their top-six forwards, their three best defencemen and their starting goalie out of the lineup and, yeah, thereâ€™s going to be a transition period and some growing pains.â€? Defenceman Tyler Hansen, 20, left the team in the off-season in favour

of a two-year christian mission with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latterday Saints. Colin Smith and JC Lipon, both 20, signed with NHL teams and, while they were not shoo-ins to play professional hockey this season, it appears they will not be returned to Kamloops. Bonner said losing all three of those players caught the team â€œa little
off guard.â€? The Blazersâ€™ GM was responsible for trading away starting goaltender Cole Cheveldave, who went to Prince Albert for Jake Kryski, the 13th overall selection in this yearâ€™s WHL bantam draft. â€œThereâ€™s 21 other teams that would have done that deal if it was in front of them,â€? he said. â€œThatâ€™s a trade thatâ€™s going to pay dividends
down the road.â€? Combine the unexpected losses and the Cheveldave trade with the exodus of over-age forwards Dylan Willick, Brendan Ranford and Kale Kessy, then factor in the absence of defencemen Joel Edmundson and Marek Hrbas, both now 20 and playing professionally, and the cupboard looks pretty thin. â—† See BONNER A18

Blazer GM not ready to wave white ďŹ‚ag â—† From A16
Kryski joins what the club believes is an elite crop of 1998-born Blazer forwards, including 2013 bantamdraft selections Quinn BenjaďŹ eld, the Blazersâ€™ ďŹ rst-round pick, and Jermaine Loewen, picked in Round 3. Two or three years down the road, that group will likely contribute in a big way, but little good does that for this seasonâ€™s edition of the Blue and Orange. Returning forwards Tim Bozon and Aspen Sterzer, both 19, and Chase Souto, who turns 19 on Oct. 8, along with Matt Needham and Cole Ully, both 18, will be expected to carry the load up front throughout the 20132014 campaign. Tyson Ness, 20, who the Blazers acquired this week in a trade with Red Deer, racked up 19 goals and 39 points last season with the Rebels. The Blazers received 19-year-old forward Tristan Sieben from the Vancouver Giants in a trade earlier this month. He has 29 points, including 11 goals, in 97 regular-season WHL games. Returning grinder Joe Kornelsen, 20, will provide some sandpaper up front. On the blue-line, Sam Grist, 20, and Landon Cross, 19, are the elder statesmen, with the highly touted Jordan
Thomson, 17, seeming poised to come into his own and Swiss import Edson Harlacher, 17, expected to provide stability. Josh Connolly, 18, and 17-year-olds Ryan Rehill and Connor Clouston round out the back end. Last yearâ€™s backup netminder Taran Kozun and the recently acquired Bolton Pouliot, both 19, are expected to jostle for the starting job this season. (Pouliot, itâ€™s worth noting, is engaged to Sterzerâ€™s sister, Sierra). â€œAre we going to fall short some nights because of our age and our experience, probably, but you want to win every year and hopefully we can develop our younger players quicker than most this season and be a competitive group,â€? Bonner said. â€œWho knows, if we were to get one or two of those guys [Smith and/or Lipon] back in our lineup, things change in a hurry. â€œWeâ€™re not throwing in the towel this year.â€?
The Kamloops Blazers have one home game this month, their season-opening clash with the Kelowna Rockets on Friday, Sept. 20. Game time is 7 p.m.

Hunchak takes over behind the bench By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
The Dave Hunchak era is set to begin, but donâ€™t expect too many opening-night jitters from the Kamloops Blazersâ€™ bench boss. â€œHaving done this before, itâ€™s not like itâ€™s new to me,â€? said Hunchak, head coach of the Moose Jaw Warriors from 2007 to 2011. â€œYou have to have trust and delegate a lot of stuff to your staff and allow them to do their jobs. We have great staff in place with a lot of people with knowledge and experience.â€? Hunchak joined the Blazers in June 2011 as an associate to then head coach Guy Charron, who moved down the depth chart this off-season into a new role, advisor to hockey operations. Blazersâ€™ general
manager Craig Bonner brought in Mark Ferner â€” formerly an assistant and head coach with Kamloops â€” to occupy the associate-coach position vacated by Hunchak. The new man in charge inherits a team that is not expected to make much noise in the Western Conference, but he has no plans to lay down for anyone. â€œWeâ€™ve got a lot of new faces, but I think itâ€™s important that our standards donâ€™t change,â€? Hunchak said. â€œWhat I mean by that is we expect to win every night. Weâ€™re going to have to do it in a different fashion than weâ€™ve done the last couple of years, but thatâ€™s what our expectations are. â€œWe donâ€™t want to change our culture or our environment.â€? KTW asked several
players what differences they have noticed in the way things are run since Hunchak took over. Cole Ully said not much has changed. â€œItâ€™s just different coaching styles, but not too big of a difference,â€? said Ully, a forward from Calgary. â€œThereâ€™s just more technical work on systems now, but we did get that last year with Hunch, so thatâ€™s why itâ€™s not that different. Guy is more vocal and likes to talk a lot, but not really too many differences.â€? Defenceman Sam Grist agreed: â€œItâ€™s not as vocal. Itâ€™s more rolebased. He [Hunchak] will give examples instead of getting after the player in a vocal way.â€? Much of the success of the 2013-2014 Blazers will depend on the progress of its 16- and 17-year-old players.
Guy Charron stepped away this off-season from the head coaching position with the Kamloops Blazers and Dave Hunchak took over. Allen Douglas/KTW
Here are Hunchakâ€™s Coles Notes on a group of young forwards: Mitch Friesen is a second-year player with a big body and a big shot. Nathan Looysen is an awkward skater with good hockey sense and skill. Nick Chyzowski is a hard-working two-way player. Jesse Shynkaruk
has championship pedigree, having went to the national midget championship Telus Cup last season with the Saskatoon Contacts. Mitch Lipon is not like his older brother, JC. Mitch has more skill than JC and plays the game a different way. â—† See HUNCHAK A22

Needham to captain Blazer ship By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The next Kamloops Blazers captain is Matt Needham, and he will lead both by example and with his vocal cords. “I think a captain needs to be a mix of both,” said Dave Hunchak, the Blazers’ head coach. “Dylan Willick was a good captain, but he was a quiet leader. “He didn’t say a whole heck of a lot. “It wasn’t hard for him to talk, but it just wasn’t his nature. “Chase Schaber was a barker.
“Those are two different ways of leading.” Willick wore the C last season. Schaber was his predecessor. Needham, 18, and 20-year-old Sam Grist were the two frontrunners for the Blazer captaincy heading into the season. The Penticton product, a centreman, was the choice that best suits the club’s future. At 18, he still has some maturing to do, but Needham, unlike Grist, will be around for at least another year and Hunchak is willing to let a captain grow into the role. “It’s something I’ve been looking to do — step up and take a bigger role with the team,” said Needham. “I try to find a happy medium [between being vocal and leading by example]. “I don’t want
photo pph hootto
to be too all over guys and you can’t be saying anything unless you’re doing it yourself. That’s something that I pride myself in. “If I’m not doing it, I’m in no position to be telling other guys to do it.” Grist, a sizeable D-man from North Saanich, has the respect of his teammates and is not afraid to be vocal. “After the period or after the game, if it’s important that someone needs to hear something, then, for sure, I’ll let them know,” Grist said. “I feel like I am ready to wear a letter. I don’t know about the whole captain thing, but I’m ready for whatever. “It’s not up to me. “It’s up to the boys and the coaching staff.” The team will rotate the alternate captaincies this season, and Grist will likely find himself on that list. Other players who might wear an A this season include Joe Kornelsen, 20, Tim Bozon, 19, Aspen
Matt Needham has been named the Kamloops Blazers’ captain for the 2013-2014 WHL campaign. Allen Douglas/KTW
Sterzer, 19, Cole Ully, 18, Ryan Rehill, 17, and Chase Souto, 18. “I think a true leader exemplifies all those assets as far as being able to communicate, fire guys up, calm guys down and
be able to deal with other individuals’ problems,” Hunchak said. “He needs to a be leader in the room and be an extension of the coaching staff, sending the same messages we’re sending.”

LUNCH WITH HUNCH Kamloops Blazersâ€™ head coach Dave Hunchak made an appearance at the second annual Kamloops Daybreak Rotary Ribfest in August at Riverside Park. Allen Douglas/KTW
Hunchak: â€˜Better buy a programâ€™ â—† From A20
Connor Clouston is a budding twoway defenceman and Jordan Thomson, drafted fourth overall in the 2011 WHL bantam draft, is expected to come of age this season. With so many fresh faces, â€œpeople better buy their programs so they can ďŹ gure out who is who,â€? Hunchak said. With many
pundits pegging the Blazers to spend time regrouping at the bottom of the B.C. Division, Hunchak was asked if the clubâ€™s brass had a time frame in mind for its return to the top of the West. â€œTo say that thereâ€™s a plan in place as to how weâ€™re developing our players, yes, there is, but thereâ€™s an expectation to win every year,â€?
Hunchak replied. â€œItâ€™s difďŹ cult to answer because you need a lot of things to line up. Those 98-born forwards (read about them on page A18), thatâ€™s an elite group but, who knows, you could be sitting here talking to me in February and weâ€™re at 42 wins and youâ€™re asking me a different question. It just depends on how things come together.â€?

Serious About Your Game? BOZONâ€™S BACK Last year, Blazer forward Tim Bozon found the back of the net 36 times â€” not including this bat-in beauty that was disallowed because, as you can see, his stick was a bit high. In addition to 36 markers, Bozon also tallied 55 assists for 91 points in the 2012-2013 WHL campaign, which is the most among all returning Blazers. KTW file photo

Hurry hard to Logan Lake! Curling season is about to begin in Logan Lake. The Logan Lake Curling Club will be holding its 2013/2014 season registration general meeting on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 7 p.m. in the foyer of the Logan Lake Curling Rink. New and experienced curlers are welcome. Sign-up sheets for weekday afternoon and evening draws will be available, with league play set to begin on Oct. 15, subject to minimum numbers. The club makes special accommodation for curlers with a sore back or knees by allowing curling with a stick rather than the normal practise of crouching in the hack. Equipment loan and instruction for new curlers is always available. Zach Morgan of Kamloops performed well last week at an Olympic Hopes competition in the Czech Republic. Morgan, seen here competing at the recent Canadian Nationals, is a member of the Kamloops Canoe and Kayak Club, which trains at Shumway Lake.

He will be lovingly remembered by his wife Linda, daughter Sandra (Dan), son Keith (Dana), grandchildren Jordan, Noah, Connor, Lane and Ryder.

Prayers will be recited on Friday, September 20, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. in St. John Vianney Catholic Church.

Starting pivot Sheldon Aiken managed another rushing TD as well as a passing major to Issa Diaou. On defence, Kash Minion, Tino Dziba and Liam Milovick all played strong games. The pee-wee Broncs took on the first-place Vernon Magnums — and it showed. Vernon stomped Kamloops 32-0.

Russian to learn new language at TRU By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
If the only Russian word you’ve ever spoken is simply “vodka,” that’s still enough to register for a new course in the language being offered at Thompson Rivers University. In fact, said instructor Susanna Fawkes, if you’ve never spoken a single word of Russian in your life — but want to — the new course is tailor-made for you. Fawkes, who was born in Armenia when it was part of the Soviet Union, said the course is designed to provide enough competency to at least function in speaking, listening to, reading and writing Russian, her own first language. But, there will also be a cultural component, a bit of an immersion into the Russian way of life and history that would be beneficial for people who want to travel to or work in the country. Fawkes said Russian is one of the most-spoken languages in the world, with 160 nationalities using it. In fact, it’s ranked as the eighth most-spoken language.
Chinese tops the linguistics list, followed by Spanish, English, Bengali, Hindi, Arabic and Portuguese. Add in those who speak it as a second language and it climbs to fourth in the list, behind Chinese, English and Spanish. “In North America, it is considered a top strategic language,” Fawkes said. “It will open new doors and help with career success.” Fawkes said languages and their instruction are her passion. She also speaks Armenian, German and English, and has a bachelor’s degree in Russian language and literature from a university in her homeland. She acquired a master’s degree in applied linguistics and teaching English as a second language (ESL) from the University of Massachusetts Fawkes is also teaching ESL at TRU. The introductory course runs weekly on Tuesdays from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The next level will be in the second-semester schedule at TRU. For more information, Fawkes can be reached at 250-371-5930 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

NEW! Temporary Exhibit at the Kamloops Museum THE WAR OF 1812 IN THE WEST - THE OREGON COUNTRY LEGACY September 10th to January 4th, 2014 at the Kamloops Museum and Archives For many, the War of 1812 happened in eastern Canada, far away from presentday British Columbia. While no battles were fought here, the war had great impact on the settlement of Western Canada and the eventual location of the international boundary. In 1812, two trading posts competed for the local fur trade in Kamloops. One was owned by the American-owned Pacific Fur Company, the other by the Northwest Company of Montreal. As a result of the war, the Americans decided to sell their trading post in 1813, ending their presence in the Canadian west. Join the Kamloops Museum and Archives and explore the twists and turns of this fascinating story in our new temporary exhibit! Kamloops Museum & Archives

BEAR BRANCHES OUT This little guy found himself the object of some attention — and cast back his own curious looks — after he took shelter recently just outside Centennial Park in Westsyde. Several people called conservation officers, who asked people to leave the park so the bear could come down and move on, which he did.

Studies say rape is an African problem
N MAY, WITH considerable trepidation, I wrote an article about what seemed to be extraordinarily high rates of rape in Africa. The original data came from a study by South Africa’s Medical Research Council in 2009, which found more than a quarter of South African men — 27.6 per cent — admitted they had committed rape. Almost half of those men had raped two or three women or girls. One in 13 had raped at least 10 victims. So, I wrote a piece called An African Iceberg, in which I said this was a phenomenon that needed urgent investigation continent-wide. However, it did occur to me to wonder if there were similar icebergs in other developing countries. The only figures available for developing countries elsewhere were official ones — and those normally only record the number of women who tell the police they have been raped. Most don’t. Women are reluctant to report rape in any society — even more so in traditional societies. The South African study was the only one that had adopted the strategy of asking men directly. Maybe if the same sort of study were done in other continents, I thought, it would return equally horrifying figures. Well, somebody else had the same thought and the resources to do something about it. The new report, conducted under the auspices of four United Nations agencies cooperating as “Partners for Prevention,” was published this month
GWYNNE DYER World WATCH in the online version of Lancet Global Health, a respected British medical journal. The study was undertaken quite specifically to learn if the South African figures were duplicated in developing countries outside Africa. The researchers chose six countries in the AsiaPacific region: China, Cambodia, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Papua New Guinea. As in the South African study, the word “rape” was not used in the questionnaire. The 10,178 men interviewed were asked if they had ever “forced a woman who was not your wife or girlfriend at the time to have sex” or “had sex with a woman who was too drunk or drugged to indicate whether she wanted it.” There were further questions about forcing a wife or girlfriend to have sex (which is also rape), about gang rape and about raping males. But, for simplicity’s sake, let’s stick with the questions about what the researchers called “single perpetrator rape” of a woman who was neither wife nor girlfriend. The answers varied from country to country, but the overall picture was clear — Africa (or at least South Africa) is all alone out there. In most of the Asian countries involved in the study, between two and four per cent of the men interviewed said
ARE YOU PLANNING A GARAGE SALE?
DO YOU WANT A FREE LUNCH?
they had raped a “nonpartner” woman. That falls into the same range that prevails, one suspects, in most developed countries (although their reported cases of rape are much lower). But, Papua New Guinea was right up there with South Africa: 26.6 per cent of the men interviewed had committed “single perpetrator rape” of a non-partner woman.
And the other numbers were just as startling: 14 percent of men in Papua New Guinea had participated in a gang rape and 7.7 per cent had raped a man or boy. So, Asia as a whole is quite different from Africa on this count, but Papua New Guinea is practically identical. What is so special about Papua New Guinea? It is a country with an
extravagantly large number of different tribes and languages. It is an extremely violent country, where most people live in extreme poverty. It is a place where the law is enforced only sporadically, and often corruptly. And it is a place where traditional tribal values, patriarchal to the core, reign virtually unchallenged among a large part of the population.
Remind you of anywhere? Well, you already suspected that this was at the root of it, didn’t you? You just didn’t want to say so, for fear of being accused of being racist, anti-African or something of that sort. But, it does need to be said, loudly and repeatedly: Women and girls are more likely to be the victims of sexual
violence in Africa than almost anywhere else — and the only way to change that is to change the behaviour of African men. This can happen by persuasion if possible, but also by enforcing the law. Gwynne Dyer is an independent journalist whose articles are published in 45 countries. gwynnedyer.com

LOCAL NEWS HE HAS A $10,000 SWING! Wade Billey knows golf is not a good walk spoiled. The Kamloops resident took part in the annual JDRF Swing For a Cure tourney at The Dunes on Sunday, Sept. 15 — and walked away with a cool $10,000. The prize was the result of Billey acing the 147-yard, par-3 seventh hole. When did he know he had shot a hole-in-one? “When the lady sitting behind the green jumped up and started screaming!” Billey said. The Mardi Gras-themed tourney raised money for research into juvenile diabetes. KTW photo

FortisBC has received approval from the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC) to decrease the natural gas commodity rates for most customers beginning on Tuesday, Oct. 1 The decrease will mean a savings for Kamloops residents who use natural gas supplied by Fortis. Residential customers in the Tournament Capital will see a decrease to the commodity rate of 64.1 cents per gigajoule (GJ). This will result in a decrease of approximately $61 per year for an average residential customer using approximately 95 GJ. Customer Choice program participants will not be affected by changes to the commodity rate. â€œNatural-gas prices have fallen since spring,â€? said Cynthia Des Brisay, vice-president of energy supply and resource development for FortisBC.

Aaron Pritchett talks about his influences ahead of Kamloops show By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
LAME IT ON MOM. Easy for Aaron Pritchett to do — it’s because of his mom that he’s a country singer today.
Pritchett, who is bringing an acoustic show to On the Rocks Pub and Grill on Friday, Sept. 20, said he always liked music and singing, but it was his mom signing him up for a country-music competition that got everything moving. He didn’t know she had done it until after the paperwork was in, Pritchett said, and, although he was successful at the provincial level, he didn’t bring home any trophies at the national level. What he did return to Terrace with was a love of performing. “I was thinking this country thing is kinda cool, so I put a band together and we started performing,” Pritchett said. As a child, he grew up listening to the names that are iconic today — Elvis Presley, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Van Morrison — but, eventually, Bob Marley’s name joined the list after Pritchett’s dad became a fan of reggae. A lot of that musical heritage shows up in his music, although not all of it works with the country style. “Elvis is a no-brainer,”said Pritchett, the Canadian Country Music Association’s songwriter and male artist of the year back in 2007. “It’s kind of hard to put Motown inflections into country, though.”

Series underway CFBX drive in home stretch
The Kamloops Film Society’s 41st annual fall film series is underway on successive Thursdays. The event kicked off last week with a screening of Before Midnight. The film follows the two characters introduced by director Richard Linklater in the 1995 movie Before Sunrise. He revisited their lives’ stories in Before Sunset in 2004 and, with this third film, returns to the couple two decades after their first meeting as they reunite in Greece. The next film, on Sept. 26, is the documentary Good Ol’ Freda, the story of Freda Kelly, a teenager who went to work for a local band — The Beatles — and stayed with them for 11 years. It is directed by Ryan White. On Oct. 10, the society screens Frances Ha, directed by Noah Baumbach and starring his partner, Greta Gerwig. The comedy follows Gerwig’s character as she deals with her best friend moving across the country, possible unemployment, failure at love and her dream of becoming a dancer — even though she is not good at it.
The Hunt, directed by Thomas Vinterberg, is next in the series, scheduled for Oct. 24. The Danish drama stars Mads Middelsen as a high-school teacher whose life is shattered by a divorce and a lie. Museum Hours, on Nov. 7, stars Mary Margaret O’Hara as a woman who frequents the Kunsthistorisches Art Museum in Vienna, where she befriends the guard. Together, they explore their city, the works in the museum and their own lives. The series concludes on Nov. 21 with Wajda, directed by Haifaa Al-Mansoure. The drama tells the story of a 10-year-old girl living in Saudia Arabia and rebelling against her culture. She wants a bicycle, which her mother says is inappropriate for a girl and, to get it, she enters a competition to recite parts of the Koran. All films begin at 7 p.m. A society membership is required and available for $2 at the venue or at Moviemart, 444 St. Paul St. Tickets are $8 and available at both locations.
The annual volunteer drive at CFBX, the campus/community radio station at Thompson Rivers University, will wrap up on Friday, Sept. 20. CFBX is an entirely volunteer run and programmed radio station and is always looking for energetic and creative volunteers to help out on air and off air. Volunteers do not need to be TRU students to get involved. CFBX programs a wide variety of music and spoken-word programming with a non-commercial focus. CFBX is an excellent place to build up job skills in audio editing, interviewing, writing, organization skills and computer use. There are numerous ways to get involved at the station on air and off. Anyone interested in getting involved with CFBX can call the station at 377-3988, email radio@ tru.ca or drop by the station at House 8, behind the Campus Activity Centre on the TRU campus.

The Longest Ride
Ira Levinson is in trouble. At ninety-one years old, in poor health and alone in the world, he ¿nds himself stranded on an isolated embankment after a car crash. Suffering multiple injuries, he struggles to retain consciousness until a blurry image materializes and comes into focus beside him: his beloved wife Ruth, who passed away nine years ago. Urging him to hang on, she forces him to remain alert by recounting the stories of their lifetime together – how they met, the precious paintings they collected together, the dark days of WWII and its effect on them and their families. Ira knows that Ruth can’t possibly be in the car with him, but he clings to her words and his memories, reliving the sorrows and everyday joys that de¿ned their marriage.

Family affair continues on X From B1
While he writes his own songs, Pritchett decided to take another piece of music history and put his own mark on it when he recorded a cover of The Weight by The Band. “I got a compliment from Robbie Robertson on it when he heard it,” Pritchett said of the man credited with writing the song. “He said he really liked the version. I just wanted to do a country version without butchering it. “One of the challenges I had was to cut it down to under four minutes,” something he felt he had to do because “country radio is picky about the time of the song. “I think it comes in at three minutes and 50 seconds.” While Pritchett loves the big shows in the large arenas with his full band behind him, he sometimes thinks the smaller acoustic ones are better — or, at the very least, more personal and intimate. “I get to tell some of the stories behind the songs and I get as much of a kick out of telling those stories,” he said. And, he gets to continue the parent-child musical relationship, as his son Jordan will be the only other person on stage with him. The first time the two of them did the acoustic show — Jordan

It was great to play off each other. “And he’s a great guitarist,” something the dad said with a laugh is through no assistance from him. “I’ve never pretended to be a great guitarist. “No, Jordan, he’s just one of those kids who sat in his room for hours and hours and hours and learned by himself.” But, perhaps taking his lead from his mom, Pritchett did have a hand in his oldest son’s own musical success, encouraging

Hispanic community hosting potluck dinner Event celebrating Latin American culture and food comes during Hispanic Heritage Month By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Liza Ferris recalls going to a store and overhearing someone speaking Spanish. “I was surprised because I had never heard people speaking Spanish in Kamloops before,” she said. She hears it a lot now. Along with Yamilka Zienowicz, the two started the Kamloops Hispanic Society — Sociedad Hispana de Kamloops for those who speak the language or who want to find it on Facebook — and they’re ready to go public. The group came about after Zienowicz visited the Kamloops Immigrant Services (KIS) office looking for a contact with a Latino group. Told it was one of the few cultures represented in the city that did not have a group,
she was encouraged to start one and, with Ferris, who works at the centre, a meeting was held on Jan. 4. Twenty-four people came out. Most recently, membership has grown to 75 — and they’re planning to share some of their culture at a potluck party on Saturday, Sept. 21, from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. at KIS at 448 Tranquille Rd. All that’s required is a dish to contribute and an interest in the Latin culture. Members come from Mexico, El Salvador, Costa Rica, Peru, Argentina, Chile, Honduras, Nicaragua, Colombia, Venezuela, Guatemala, Puerto Rice and the Dominican Republic, Zienowicz said, with the majority from Mexico and El Salvador. They get together monthly — the first Monday one month and the first two the next — to support each other,
keep their language alive and promote their cultures. The date was chosen because it’s in the middle of Hispanic Heritage Month, which
runs from Sept. 15 to Oct. 15. It’s a month designated by the U.S. in 1988 to recognize the contributions of the Hispanic and Latino communities in the U.S. to the country’s heritage and culture. The month begins on Sept. 15 because that’s the anniversary of independence for five Latin American
nations — Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua. The month also includes the independence dates of Mexico (Sept. 16), Chile (Sept. 18) and Belize (Sept. 21). The women hope to make the potluck an annual event and plan to highlight more than foods.
Objects, books, pictures, videos and other items from the many countries represented will be on display and some of the group’s members will be talking about how they celebrate their heritage in their own countries. Having spent this year growing and connecting, the group plans to register as a formal non-profit society next
and hopefully begin lessons to teach others their language. More cultural events are planned and they’d also like to help members who have just arrived in Canada to succeed in the Kamloops workforce. For more information, contact Zienowicz by email to sociedadhispana@ hotmail.com.

AM A CAT WHISPERER. As a girl, on weekends when I’d visit my grandparents’ farm, I often wandered across the lane to my aunt and uncle’s house. There, on frosty, pre-winter days, I’d help my aunt make the cats’ dinner. Filling three enameled bowls with dry cat food from the store, we’d pour boiling water over top and set them aside to soak. Then warm milk, still frothy from hitting the side of the pail, was poured over thick slices of yesterday’s bread. And, when the contents of the first bowls had turned to stew, we carried our dishes out to the barn. After all the cats had eaten, I’d crouch near the empty dishes, and there remain perfectly still on the cow-trodden concrete, hand extended in a gesture of amity. I’d wait until my muscles ached.

And, I was so close to missing assorted deadlines, I could almost feel windows of time slamming on my typing fingers. But that was why we were here. I was both writing about the farm for a travel feature in a local publication, and I needed a change of scenery to recharge my creative cells. To be honest, if I’d ever had a calm centre, it had since shifted to the side and thrown me disastrously off balance. “Just relax,” said Chefhusband when the first llama turned away from me and bolted for the back of the pack. Meanwhile, several llamas began to gather around him. One
snuffled his head and nuzzled his neck. And at the same time, a baby llama ran away from me and hid behind its mother. “Well,” said the farmer, seeming to sense that I was becoming distraught. “It takes most people time. “Your husband there just seems to have a natural calm. “If you came to work here for a week, you’d be as tranquil as a monk.” Tranquil, I thought, wondering whether there might be any tranquilizers in the barn. Without a week to spare, I never did get to hug a llama. I did, however, get to go home, sort my deadlines by their due dates, hug a chef, and cheer up with a warm bowl of consolation, cannellini beans, kale and sweet Italian sausage. email@example.com

DEAR RELATIVE OF MINE —I’LL CALL HER CLARE — WAS MENTALLY ILL. She was treated by a psychiatrist, put on medication and didn’t seem any better. People prayed for her — people in her hometown, relatives and friends. On the advice of a friend, I wrote to a group of nuns and asked them to pray. Sadly, Clare’s condition deteriorated. She began spending whole nights and days screaming in a voice that didn’t sound like her own. She spewed out dissatisfaction with her life, hatred, and even death threats against individuals she believed were persecuting her. People kept praying. Some urged her to read the Bible and pray for help. Though she was a Christian, she didn’t seem able to do this. She wouldn’t go to church and refused to say the name of Jesus. She definitely didn’t want to see another psychiatrist.

in faith. On the seventh day, during a long trumpet blast, the people shouted and the walls fell. What’s your Jericho? For me and many other Kamloopsians, today’s Jericho is the huge open-pit mine attempting to rise on the edge of our city. We concerned residents include scientists, physicians, mining experts and lots of ordinary people. Based on extensive research, we believe that dust, finelyground metals, diesel fumes, noise and other pollutants from the mine would harm people’s health. This project would simply be too close to our population of 90,000 women, men and defenceless children. We hope Ajax’s walls come down before they’re ever built. If you agree, what can you do? You can believe God is capable of doing something we’ll thank God for for the rest of our lives. You can unite with others to convey your concerns to politi-
cians and the media. Most of all, I invite you to pray. If you disagree with our position, I’d like to invite you also to pray. Perhaps our united petitions will help clarify and resolve this issue in a way that will be good for everyone. God has lots of ideas. He’s a God of surprises and he loves us. Last spring, I and several others committed ourselves to praying about the proposed mine for 10 minutes a day. Will you join us for whatever length of time works for you? This is an issue that warrants going right to the top. Elma Schemenauer is a Kamloops-based author who has also edited many books including The Unseen Hand: The Angela Tran Story by Bob Cretney; To the Ends of the Earth: A History of the Canadian Bible Society by Gerald E. Benson and Kenneth G. McMillan; and Pope John Paul II by Father Robert Bulbrook et al.
