t did not take long for Scott Casey to realize Sarajevo was, as he put it, “a shitshow.” “My first day there I watched a pregnant woman get shot in the stomach,” he told KTW. “The place was literally a bloody mess. They were butchering their own citizens by the thousands.” It was the early stages of the Bosnian War — a battle that would continue for four years and eventually see nearly 100,000 people killed. Today, Casey lives in Westsyde with his family. In 1992, he was a Canadian soldier stationed in Germany. When the call for UN peacekeepers came, his November Company shipped out. “We were there within hours, as opposed to trying to get them out of Canada,” he said. “There was no peace there

to keep. Everybody was shooting at everybody and everybody was shooting at us. “We were just targets in big, white vehicles.” The rule for UN peacekeepers, Casey said, is that they can only fire their weapons if they are being fired upon. “It’s called chapter-six peacekeeping,” he said. “But, because of the severity of the fire we were under, we created chapter six-and-ahalf.” Casey said the peacekeepers were not disobeying orders or breaking any laws — just adapting to their situation.

Who’s in charge at White Buffalo? By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Attempts by KTW to learn the names of current board members for White Buffalo Aboriginal and Metis Health Society have been unsuccessful. The agency, one of two headed by Deb Canada, was the subjects of provincial audits looking into allegations of financial concerns. White Buffalo held an annual general meeting last week. There was no public notice of the meeting and it is unclear where it was held, who attended or what the agenda entailed. KTW requested information after the meeting. The first request was ignored, the second resulted in an email forwarded to KTW by the Tranquille Road agency from Verna Billy-Minnabarriet, stating “No comment.” The email was copied to agency program director Jeanie Cardinal, Aruna Gore, M. Rose McArthur Kristiansen and Canada. Minabarriet and Kristiansen are listed as board members in the agency’s 2012 Canada

Revenue Agency filing, as are Patricia Cardinal, George Girouard and Lisa Armstrong. KTW was only able to confirm Armstrong is no longer on the board as she has been involved in a program the agency is providing and identified herself at that time as a staff member. The federal filing reports the agency had 12 staff members for the fiscal period, nine making up to $39,999 and three earning up to $79,999. The audit already revealed Canada, who worked one day a week, was paid $60,000 annually. In her capacity at the Metis Commission of Children and Families of B.C., the audit noted Canada was paid $134,000 for four days work each week. The White Buffalo filing notes $32,5666 was paid to parttime or part-year employees and the total compensation expenditure for the fiscal period was $532,905. Detailed financial information shows $42,651 in cash, bank accounts and short-term investments for the 2012 fiscal year, another $24,219 in receivable assets, $26,859 in other

capital assets and $2,500 in other assets. Revenue included $201,333 from the federal government, $479,332 from the province, $331 in interest and investment income and another $35,532 in other revenue. The second-greatest expenditure after compensation was occupancy costs of $69,148, followed by supplies ($29,790), education and training ($24,912), travel and vehicle expenses ($22,318) and other expenditures ($19,891). Sheldon Johnson, a communications officer with the provincial Ministry of Children and Family Development, has declined to provide comment on the fallout from the audit other than to note the ministry is working with both agencies to resolve issues. The audits identified bookkeeping errors involving up to $151,390 in adjustments and included concern Canada was directly involved in email discussions about her salaries at both agencies. The audits also called into question the accuracy of financial reports given to the ministry in the past.

Hospital in battle with c. difficile bug By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Parking’s new age arrives Nov. 12 By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

New pay stations are set to go live on Nov. 12 on Victoria, Lansdowne and Seymour streets, but motorists parking on Kamloops’ downtown avenues will spend about one more month using the city’s old, coin-operated meters. Blame the U.S. government shutdown. While Precise Parklink, which supplies the city’s parking machines, is a Canadian company, some components of the machines are manufactured in the United States, said Kamloops’ community-safety manager Jon Wilson. “When the shutdown happened, it affected customs, the postal service, all the rest of it,” Wilson said. “So, there’s been delays.” While the city had hoped to get rid of all old meters at once, Wilson said it will likely be December before the entire downtown switches to digital parking. The city is moving ahead with the rollout where it can, however, with merchant training on the new stations running until Saturday, Nov. 9, at Caffe Motivo on Victoria Street, where a live machine has

been installed inside the coffee shop. While the new pay stations are larger than the old meters and require more information when paying, Wilson doesn’t think they will be too difficult for people to learn to use. “Unfortunately, change comes with a fear of operating the equipment, but the machines do accept coin and that’s one of the biggest fears I’ve heard from some in the community,” he said. Along with accepting American and Canadian currency, the machines will also take credit cards. An option to pay for parking using a smartphone app is also forthcoming, though Wilson said it won’t be immediately available. The new meters will offer three hours of parking at a time and will double the cost of parking — to $1 per hour from 50 cents. Under the new system, motorists will no longer pay for individual parking stalls when they come downtown. Instead, they will punch their licence-plate numbers into the pay terminals. That means a payment will still be valid even if the car attached to it is moved to another downtown block halfway through

the allotted time. “Under the old system, if you paid for two hours at a spot and left before that, you kind of lost that,” Wilson said. People who find they need more parking time won’t have to worry about running back to the meter at which they originally paid. “What these machines do is they’re integrated together,” Wilson said. “So, say if you park at the 100-block of Victoria and you initially came for an hour of parking time and you end up down at the 400 block of Victoria and decide you want to go for lunch, you can go up to another pay station, enter in your same licence-plate number and extend your parking at your original spot up to the maximum three hours of time.” To get people used to punching in their licence-plate number, Wilson said the city is planning to offer free wallet and key-fob cards on which people can write down the required information. Cards are also be available at Motivo. Once the meters are switched on, downtown ambassadors will be on the streets to offer customer support.

With an increase in the number of patients affected by the clostridium difficile (c. difficile) bacteria, Royal Inland Hospital has stepped up all the measures it takes daily to contain the bug. RIH administrator Marg Brown said 14 patients, most of them on a medical unit, have gastro-intestinal symptoms. Of that number, half have been confirmed to be dealing with c. difficile and tests on the other half are being done. Dr. Edith Blondell-Hill is the Interior Health Authority expert on infectious diseases. She said once an outbreak occurs, it’s key to get patients on oral antibiotics as soon as possible, something Brown said has happened. Clutter is a problem as the bacteria can survive for long periods of time on surfaces, Blondell-Hill said, noting over-population of the hospital — with patients having to be left in hallways — doesn’t help because hallways don’t have the same air-exchange as medical unit rooms. The key, Blondell-Hill said, is to ensure everyone — staff, physicians, specialists and patients — wash their hands frequently, something Brown said everyone at the facility is reminded of daily. “It’s incredible what just soap and water can do, the stuff our moms taught us,” she said. Blondel-Hill said having staff wear gloves isn’t necessarily beneficial. “That can be a real problem because, under the glove, any bacteria could grow in that warm environment on your hands.” RIH has doubled up its cleaning schedule and moved to a sporicidal cleaner. Sick patients are also being kept together. Those most at risk are older patients whose systems may have been weakened by frequent use of antibiotics, those who take medicines that reduce the acidity in the stomach and patients undergoing chemotherapy. Blondel-Hill said that one thing mothers taught their children may no longer be true — sometimes it’s best to not take the recommended full course of antibiotics. She said microbiologists like her have determined that it’s not necessary to take the medicine for 10 days to two weeks. “But, we are realizing we need to hit the bugs hard for a short period of time.” Longer use can affect the good bacteria in the body, she said, and make them become resistant to antibiotics.

Kamloops city councillors have renewed a call for am enhanced form of environmental review for the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine. Councillors this week passed a motion calling for a joint panel review for the mine, which KGHM Ajax wants to build south of Aberdeen. The motion was passed unanimously by all eight councillors present (Coun. Nelly Dever was absent), with

no discussion. Mayor Peter Milobar, who raised the idea of passing a new panel review motion, said the idea struck him when he was writing a letter to federal Environment Minister Leona Aglukkaq following their meeting on the mine, conducted last month when Milobar was in Ottawa for the Communities In Bloom national and international awards. It was the mayor’s first meeting with Aglukkaq since she was appointed environment

minister in July. Milobar said he made it clear the city still wants a panel review, but noticed council’s motion calling for one is from 2011, before the most recent council was elected. “I was thinking it might be good to have an updated motion that I could reference to the minister,� he said. Former federal environment minister Peter Kent repeatedly rejected calls for a panel review, opting instead for a comprehensive study process.

Kent said the process examines the same facts as a panel review. But groups with concerns around the mine have argued a review panel, which would have

the power to hold public hearings and summon witnesses, is a more rigorous process that would better protect the city from any environmental fallout.

Suite music to homeowners’ ears A Sahali couple will have another shot at getting city approval for a secondary suite in their home. Jordan Lester and Christina Hamaguchi were at city hall this week to appeal a rejected rezoning application for 1926 Tinniswood Ct. Lester said council originally turned down the application because of strong resistance from neighbours

and concerns about parking and traffic safety. But, in re-canvassing the neighbourhood, Lester said he found more support than previously appeared. He plans to downsize the suite to a one-bedroom and supply off-street parking for its tenant. Council agreed to send the application to a new public hearing.

Kinder Morgan plans new routes in Kamloops By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kinder Morgan plans to reroute another section of its Trans Mountain pipeline in Kamloops if its planned expansion gets the go-ahead from the National Energy Board. During an information update on Tuesday, Nov. 5, Kinder Morgan representative Kate Stebbings told Kamloops city council the company is planning to give Jacko Lake south of Aberdeen a wider berth with its new pipeline. Stebbings said the position of the lake in relation to the existing Trans Mountain pipeline has changes substantially since its installation in the 1950s, noting the company doesn’t want to damage the lake by following the original course. It’s not the only place in the city where the pipeline company won’t follow the route of its original pipeline, which transports oil and other petroleum products from Alberta to the Lower Mainland. Earlier this year, Kinder Morgan announced it wants to route portions of the pipe through a Telus right of way in the Lac Du Bois protected grasslands area north of Westsyde and Batchelor Heights. That would allow the company to bypass residential areas of Westsyde, where the original pipe lies. The expanded Kinder Morgan line would carry nearly 900,000 barrels of oil per day, up from 300,000. The price tag for the project is set at $5.4 billion. Stebbings told council an expanded pipeline would have significant tax benefits for the city, increasing Kamloops’ tax haul by more than $1 million annually. She said the city would also act as one of the crew-hosting sites during construction.

Watching the vultures at court, with ticket book hot in hand

B

ACK IN MARCH, WHEN I was still covering courts for KTW, I was five minutes late getting back to my car. It was in the short-term lot at the back of the courthouse and I had put in enough money for two hours, even though I was there for just one case on a short docket. And, thanks to the efficiency of our court system in moving the accused through the process and on to the next date, the sorry bunch waiting to have their cases dealt with was done within the two hours. No problem — until someone stopped me outside the courthouse and wanted to talk. The result? I got to my car and there, firmly waving at me from under the windshield wiper, was a ticket that had been written out just five minutes after my paid-for time had expired. OK, no problem. This is something that happens and, noting an online option to pay the $50 — an amount that would double if not paid within a week — I went back to the office to make the payment and put the receipt in to the office manager for reimbursement. That’s when I discovered Precise Parklink is the Ontario-based company that has the contract with the provincial government to provide parking services at the courthouse. For interest’s sake only, I would note this same company sold the city the pay stations that are now popping up on downtown streets. Fortunately for Kamloopsians, the company will not be doing any more than providing the hardware and bylaw officers will still be handing out tickets. The Precise Parklink website won’t

LEVEL accept an online payment in the first 24 hours, apparently, so I called the Toronto phone number for customer service to ask why. A person answered the phone — the only person from the company who has actually spoken to me in the past seven months — and put me through to customer service. No answer. Leave a message. Done. Next day, no reply, so I called again. Got the same person who told me customer service is busy, but that someone will call me back. However, it being a Toronto company, it only works on Eastern Standard Time. Never heard from them again and never received a single response from the company to the seven emails I sent, asking for someone to answer some questions. In the meantime, here’s what I learned about parking at the Kamloops courthouse: • The parking station in the shortterm lot is usually broken. • The parking stations in the longterm lot are a bit better and you can walk over there to make your payment. But, earlier this week, with severalhundred people arriving for jury duty,

one of the stations back there also broke down and, eventually, the courthouse declared there would be no parking tickets issued that day, I’m told. The contract clearly states Precise Parklink is to maintain the meters “as required for the efficient operation of a parking facility.” A bit deeper into the contract, it again notes Precise Parklink is responsible for “regular parking-meter equipment repairs and maintenance.” Precise Parklink receives what its contract calls a management fee that is a percentage of net operating revenue. One of the clauses it also agreed to in signing the contract with the province was: “The issuance of parking-violation notices by the operator should not be perceived by the public to be aggressive. Accordingly, a parking-violation notice will be issued only after granting a 10-minute grace period after the expiration of the parking period.” If there’s one complaint I heard while covering courts for many months in the past year, it was the zealousness with which tickets were issued. I watched one of the staff stand in front of a car with an eye on a watch, waiting for the time to tick off to write the ticket. I checked after the staff member moved on. One minute had expired. I contacted the government at the beginning of the week, asking what it felt should be done about this situation. Someone from the communications department of Shared Services BC said a regional representative from Precise Parklink would call me to talk about this. I’m still waiting. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

The editorial cartoon on this page is conveying a message that should be remembered every day of the year, not only on Nov. 11. Yes, it has been repeated ad nauseam to the point where it now sounds like a cliche, but we really do need to always remember those who sacrificed their lives so that we may live ours in freedom. It is disheartening to hear, as a KTW staffer did this week, high-school students wondering amongst themselves when Remembrance Day fell. The consensus among the group in the Tournament Capital Centre lobby was that Remembrance Day was on Nov. 8. Or Nov. 9. Or maybe Nov. 11. Don’t even ask if they knew the significance of 11:11 on the clock. Remembrance Day — and the poppy and the ceremony and the Last Post and all of it — is not some annual, dusty, by-rote practice that we undertake while our minds are on more pressing matters. Remembrance Day is about taking time — real time — to thank those who fought and died and fought and were injured. They sacrificed then and they sacrifice now, as you read these words. If you ever doubted the importance of the day, head down to Riverside Park on Monday, Nov. 11, and tune into the History Channel this weekend to watch a documentary on peacekeeping, featuring Kamloops soldier Scott Casey. Lest we ever forget.

Re: Story: City needs to recoup $1 million: “Our mayor and council keep skirting the real issue. “The fact is 55 per cent to 60 per cent of the increase in operational spending is wages and benefits. “If they really want to know how to cap spending and reduce property-tax increases, they need look no further than Penticton. “In five years, Penticton managed to go from worst to first in per-capita taxation. “Of course, they had to make some tough and, at the time, unpopular decisions. “They instituted a hiring and benefits freeze, they laid off some workers, they decreased salaries of some middle managers — in other words, city council took responsibility for looking after taxpayers’ interests. “Unlike Kamloops, with its 3.55 per cent property-tax increase this year, Penticton has actually seen its property taxes either flatlined or decreased in recent years.” — posted by Tim Francis

Editor: Many proponents of the proposed Ajax mine state the future of Kamloops is in jeopardy if the mine is not approved. Further, proponents often suggest those who do not support the too-big-and-too-close disaster should move. I have talked to miners, gone to information sessions and studied the proposed project. My wife comes from a family of miners and she grew up in a mining town in B.C. Her community was promised that, with the “latest technology,” the landscape would be left in pristine condition, the community would prosper and money would be provided for clean-up when the mine closed. The mine is now closed. Those who prospered have left. The valley is now polluted. The mining company went into receivership. There were insufficient funds put aside to complete all aspects of clean-up. Even the cemetery is so contaminated by mine residue that burials cannot take place. Those who took over abandoned houses

do not have the financial ability to restore former amenities. My grandparents settled in Kamloops in the 1890s. They, my parents and I have worked hard to see that Kamloops has developed into the prosperous and attractive community it is. I well remember the serious economic downturn our community faced in the 1980s when we depended primarily on forestry and mining as economic drivers. Civic leaders, including members of city council, provided leadership in getting widespread input from citizens and experts to see how such economic disasters could be prevented in the future. It was determined that we should encourage economic diversity and develop a clear vision for the future. I believe we have followed that plan and are now a prosperous, attractive and progressive community. What logical person can argue for us to turn back the clock and once again become dependent on the boom and bust pattern of

so many mining communities? I do support economic development and appreciate the importance of mining to our economy; however, let us not allow one mine to destroy a very attractive and wellfunctioning community by being too big and too close. We are happy with the way our community is developing and appreciate the efforts of so many to make Kamloops what it is. Yes, I am a senior citizen, but I do have children and grandchildren living in the community and I am committed to leaving them the kind of community my grandparents, parents and I worked hard to create. If one thinks about it rationally, rather than those who are happy with their community moving elsewhere, does it not make more sense for those who ardently want active mining in or immediately adjacent to their community moving to a community that welcomes such activity?

Editor: Re: KTW story of Nov. 5 (‘Kamloops Airport prepping for upgrades’): How does Kamloops Airport manager Fred Legace figure taxpayers should be responsible for runway maintenance at the airport? That should be covered under his own budget and the airport-improvement tax.

Perhaps airport staff can chip in and help pay to keep their jobs. Once again, a pile of money is spent to benefit the wealthy who use the airport. What ever happened to the promised charter flights to tropical destinations? There are no cheap flights to anywhere from Kamloops. Where are our city coun-

History Channel to air peacekeeping documentary this weekend X From A1

“We were taking our blue helmets off at night and going out in camouflage,” Casey said. “The rules there would get you killed. We had to do something to make sure we came home. “We were there to help them and they were shooting at us. “There were so many times we could have been dead. And, what were we doing? Bringing them aid. It was all to bring them aid. “People just assume we went there and wore blue helmets and saved lives. It was a lot more than that.” Casey recently wrote a book — In the Devil’s Courthouse, which is now in the hands of a publisher in Vancouver — detailing his time in Sarajevo. Word of the book’s contents got out and, last year, he was approached by a production team

working for the History Channel. The full story of Canada’s role in Sarajevo will come out, for the first time, this weekend, in a two-hour documentary on the History Channel called Sector Sarajevo. “This story has never been told,” Casey said. “People have this warm, fuzzy idea of peacekeeping. This is going to blow the lid off of what Canadians’ view of our peacekeeping is. “It was all considered peacekeeping in that we were delivering humanitarian aid. “It’s just that there were operations no one knows about — and that’s what’s coming out. “It was the change from warm and fuzzy peacekeeping — ‘You guys play nice’ — to where we were actually engaging in operations, and that’s what people have no idea about.” Sector Sarajevo will air on the History Channel on Sunday, Nov. 10, at 6 p.m. and 9 p.m., with more airings on Monday, Nov. 11. Damage from the civil war was everywhere during the peackeeping mission. Scott Casey of Kamloops has penned a book about his time in Sarajevo. In the Devil’s Courthouse is now in the hands of a publisher in Vancouver. “People just assume we went there and wore blue helmets and saved lives,” Casey said. “It was a lot more than that.”

Creating smiles at Parkcrest

945 Columbia Street, West Kamloops, B.C. V2C 1L5 (250) 374 3033 www.sahalicentremall.com

Students busy putting together care bags for needy By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Ryan Petrie’s mom had a friend visit last year — and the effect is being felt in Parkcrest elementary this month. Ryan’s mom, Kerri, said her friend, Chantal Stefan, created a program in her hometown she calls Everyone Deserves a Smile, which sees people create Christmas care bags to be distributed to the needy. “She visited us and, after, Ryan kept saying, ‘Let’s do this’ to me, so we decided to bring it here,” Petrie said. She met with Jameel Aziz, principal at Parkcrest, where Ryan is in Grade 3, and he was excited to make it a school project. Everyone is involved in decorating the brown paper shopping bags, creating Christmas cards and collecting hats, mitts, socks, scarves, toothbrushes, tubes of toothpaste and soap. The younger grades are doing the bag artwork, while the older children are making the cards. On Dec. 16, students will pair up as buddies to put their bags together.

From there, they will hand them out at the New Life Mission. Leadership-club students are overseeing the project with the assistance of school staff and, in particular, learning-assistance teacher Sonja Corea. Donation boxes are set up throughout the school at 2170 Parkcrest Ave. on the North Shore to collect the items — all of which must be new — and the public is invited to contribute. Donations will also be accepted at Puddle Jumpers Daycare at 725 York Ave. in North Kamloops. Getting involved in a project that helps others is old hat for Dallas Smith, a Grade 6 student who has done it before with a boys’ club. It’s new for Shanty Tallio-Milton, however, another Grade 6 student who sees it as “a really cool thing to do for the homeless. They deserve to see a smile, too.” Maddie Oike, a Grade 5 student, thinks the project is a great one for the leadership students to get involved in and noted they are using some money generated from the recent Halloween school dance to buy items for the bags.

Skyler Wiltsie, another Grade 6 student, is involved because she believes everyone “should get what they need to be healthy,” adding it bothers her that there are hungry children in Kamloops. Owen Bell, a Grade 5 student, said the project is important because it’s wrong people should be living on the streets and in alleys. Skyler and Shanty want to do more than fill the bags. They’re hoping they can go with Ryan and his mom to deliver the bags at the mission so they can sing some Christmas carols or put on a seasonal play for the people in the dayroom. Shanty wants to make sure the public knows they can contribute She’s hoping to talk her parents into letting her put up a display at a mall to create awareness. Mission outreach-centre manager Terry Butcher said the project is “absolutely awesome. “Change starts with youngsters. The problem [the mission addresses] is big and complex and it can be easy to just turn away, but the thing about this — you do even just one little thing and the world changes.”

Princesses are coming to the downtown library! River City Gymnastics and Kamloops Princess Parties is presenting Princesses at the Library, a storybook event at the downtown Kamloops Library, 465 Victoria St., on Saturday, Nov, 9.

Should we target ‘rats with wings?’ Canada geese remain community’s formidable foe By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Each spring and fall, Kamloops parks staff square off against a familiar foe — the Canada goose. As park use hits a lull, flocks of geese descend on McArthur Island and Riverside Park in greater numbers. But, parks and civic facilities manager Jeff Putnam said, the problem isn’t so much the birds as the droppings they leave behind. “They like the sports fields because they’re maintained really well and people play on them, children play on them,” Putnam said, noting that not only gets messy, but can pose a health risk. It’s a problem other Interior communities are posing some drastic measures to solve. In September, the Union of B.C. Municipalities passed a resolution calling on the Canadian Wildlife Service to issue more kill permits, allowing for a cull of Canada Geese. The resolution came with the backing of the Southern Interior Local Government Association, of which Kamloops is a member city.

TO CULL OR NOT TO CULL? Should the number of Canada geese be reduced through a cull? Would you dine on goose meat? Do you have a better idea on how to keep goose poop out of our parks? Email us your ideas at editor@kamloopsthisweek.com.

“The Canada Goose is causing health concerns for those using local lakes, beaches, parks and playing fields, with high coliform counts having been detected in some areas,” the resolution states, arguing the geese are having “detrimental effects on the economy, tourism and health in the communities affected.” Kamloops councillor and SILGA president Marg Spina said the geese have been described to her as “rats with wings” and are a real problem for communities like Penticton and Osoyoos, which drafted

the original resolution. She said the communities have tried a number of relocation methods, but they haven’t been as effective as they would like. That led some municipalities to hire a consultant to draft a goose-cull plan. “What it is, is a clash between wildlife management and our wish to preserve nature as much as possible and to not do things inhumanely,” Spina said. “But, it did affect drinking water and people being able to swim in certain lakes.” In Kamloops, Putnam

said the city has tried several methods to move the geese along. “We’ve tried using a dog handler that specialized in relocating geese. It is effective, but the downside is when the handler and the dog are gone, the geese tend to come back,” he said. “Another thing we tried was using a strobe light for night time. The strobe light does actually bother them to the point where they will relocate.” Putnam said he didn’t know enough about the UBCM resolution to say if the city would be interested in a cull. Spina believes goose droppings have hurt the atmosphere in Riverside Park. “I do think it’s one of the areas where we do want to be sensitive to having spots where we can enjoy wildlife, but also clean spots where toddlers can play and children can romp around on the beach without being covered with duck manure,” she said. Spina said she would want a cull to be the last option looked at and any goose meat produced in the process donated to the Wildlife Park, SPCA or other nonprofit groups.

MORTGAGE MATTERS PAYING OFF YOUR MORTGAGE FASTER For many Canadian homeowners, one of their highest financial priorities is to pay off their mortgage as quickly as possible. Making extra payments in the early years can shorten the life of a mortgage — and dramatically lower the mortgage interest costs you’ll pay over the long haul. Those extra payments can be a sacrifice, so here are some tips to help motivate you: TIP #1: Start small - Round up your payments Try adding $10 or $20 extra per payment, the amount of interest you are saving will make a difference over time, and it’s relatively painless to part with. TIP #2: Increase your payment annually to the most you can afford Most lenders will allow you to increase your monthly payment by 10%, 15% or even 20%. Increasing your payment means you won’t have to be disciplined to save up a lump sum payment, it will be added to your payment each month, and go directly against your mortgage principle. If you find the payments are too much, most lenders will allow you to reduce your payment to the original contract rate. A small fee may apply. TIP #3: Pay a lump sum whenever possible Lump sum payments are extra payments which go directly against your mortgage principle. Now remember, your monthly payment of interest and principle was based on you making NO extra payments – so in fact, because of your payment, less interest will accrue and now more of your regular monthly payment will go toward paying down mortgage principle. TIP #4: Invest in your mortgage for tax free savings If you prepay $1000 of your mortgage balance and your mortgage interest rate is 5%, you will save about $50 per year. Now, because of income taxes (estimated at 35%), you actually have to earn $77 to make $50 in real after tax dollars. An argument could be made that your $1000 payment/investment in your mortgage, actually pays a 7.7% return per year, not just 5%. Thats more than most GICs or bonds and the savings are not taxable! TIP #5: With variable rate mortgages, keep payments the same when mortgage rates fall If the payment amount has not been a problem, try keeping it the same and pay down the principal faster. TIP #6: Raise payments in line with increased income If your income increases, consider applying at least some of the surplus toward your mortgage. The long-term benefits of becoming mortgage free faster should be a strong motivator to make an increased mortgage payment. Don’t waste your hard-earned money on interest!

DOWNTOWN CHRISTMAS

HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS! That’s right — the Jolly Old Elf will be making his annual visit to downtown Kamloops on Saturday, Nov. 30. Despite his incredibly busy schedule, Santa Claus has once again accepted the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association’s invitation and will be the focal point of the Santa Claus Parade. This year, the parade’s theme is The 4 R’s of Christmas — Reduce, Reuse, Recycle and Rudolph! Being as St. Nick will be tuckered out from appearing in so many pre-Christmas parades, kids will be required to wake up Santa in Kamloops Square (at Seymour Street and Second Avenue) at 10:30 a.m.

From there, the rosy-cheeked one will join his elves and jump on his sleigh, which will be led down Victoria Street and through the downtown core from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Those wishing to catch a glimpse of Santa can find a spot anywhere on Victoria Street between Second and Sixth avenues. • Meanwhile, for those who cannot wait to get into the Christmas spirit, the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre, at 7 Seymour Street W., is the place to be this month. Until Nov. 30, Holiday Magic can be found at the centre in the form of one-of-a-kind gifts, all made by local artists. Holiday Magic runs Tuesdays to Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

New new buses en route to the city The KamloopsThompson school district will be getting nine new school

buses thanks to almost a million dollars in funding from the provincial government. Each bus can transport between 61 and 77 students. The Ministry of Education has worked with the Association of School

Transportation Services of B.C. to buy the buses, which has resulted in savings of 10 to 15 per cent each year. The nine buses will be delivered next spring. To qualify for replacement, a bus needs to be on a regular route to school

and must meet or exceed the following criteria regarding age and kilometres driven: • 80-plus passenger buses: 15 years or 400,000 kilometres.

• 34- to 76-passenger buses: 12 years or 325,000 kilometres. • 20- to 29-passenger buses: 10 years or 250,000 kilometres.

Smoke-alarm program a roaring success Due to an overwhelming response from seniors, Kamloops Fire Rescue’s smoke-alarm program has come to an end. As a result of the strong response to the offer of free smoke alarms, the fire department now knows there is a need for such a service in Kamloops. As a result, Kamloops Fire Rescue will be working with other groups to make such programs available in the future. As the department received more than 300 requests from seniors for smoke detectors,

those who have asked for one, but have yet to receive it, are asked to be patient. Kamloops Fire Rescue received approximately 315 requests and, as of Tuesday, Nov. 5, had visited 70 homes throughout the city. In those 70 those homes, firefighters replaced 91 smoke alarms and 66 batteries. Eight of the homes visited had no smoke detectors. “It is important that we protect the people in our community who are at highest risk from fire,” said Kamloops Fire Rescue Chief Dale McLean.

“This program was not just about smoke alarms; it gave the firefighters the opportunity to meet with the seniors and share other important fire-safety tips,” In January 2012, a report prepared by the Surrey Fire Services and the University of the Fraser Valley, Smoke Alarms Work, But Not Forever, as released to the public. The report identified the importance of smoke alarms and the groups at highest risk of dying in a house fire, with seniors one of the target groups.

THE 2014s ARE HERE

The Canadian choice: Compact cars and compact SUVs By Zack Spencer So many cars to choose from, so few words available in this tight space! Yes, I know that’s the complaint of every writer, but we truly do have a lot of choice today. And the quality of vehicles is so much higher than it ever was, so there is much to celebrate. In the run-up to 2014, I will be testing a lot of what’s new and improved. Today, I’ll just offer you five models to consider adding to your shopping list. 2014 Mazda3 The compact-car segment in Canada is the biggest by far, with

over 20 per cent of all vehicles sold. So, the introduction of the Mazda3 is important because it is currently the fourth-best seller in this class. The outgoing car was already one of the best-handling cars and now, with a lighter and sexier looking body, this new car is both eye catching and solid on the road. The base engine is a 2.0L 4-cylinder with 155hp, thanks to direct injection. The larger 2.5L engine puts out a healthy 184 hp. It is the interior buyers will care most about and the Mazda3 is a nice surprise, due to class-leading available options and a high level of finish. Starting at $15,995 and running up to $29,895, there is a Mazda3 for all budgets. X See A23

2014 Toyota Corolla Continuing with the compact-car theme, the Toyota Corolla is the third-best selling car in Canada, but Toyota believes this new model can take the overall sales crown away from the Honda Civic. This new 2014 model is made, and partly designed, right here in Canada with our needs in mind. The Corolla now has a longer wheelbase for amazing interior space, especially in the back seat. The dash is wide and flat for ample room and covered in nice looking and feeling materials, plus there is an available centre screen to use for the radio and backup camera. Powering the 2014 Corolla is the same 132hp 1.8L engine from the last model, with one exception. The LE Eco model has a modified valve system to improve fuel economy and pump the power to 140hp. The biggest change is the introduction of a continuously variable transmission for a greater range of gears, improved economy and a smooth drive.

2014 Volkswagen Golf This new Golf will be made in Mexico alongside the Beetle and Jetta sedan and will go on sale in the spring of 2014. It is wider and longer than the last Golf, but also significantly lighter and safer. The base engine will be a new turbocharged 1.8L engine with 170 hp but don’t worry — the TDI diesel is carried over. The sportier GTI trim is fantastic, with an estimated 225 hp, in the Canadian Model, thanks to a new 2.0L turbo engine. The interior materials used inside are almost Audi quality. No price yet, but building these new cars inside the NAFTA zone will save money and that will be reflected in the price. 2014 Jeep Cherokee The Cherokee is back and it looks nothing like the boxy truck of old. In fact, this new, small SUV is based on the same Alfa Romeo platform used in the Dodge Dart. It is smooth and quiet and a pleasure to drive. The Cherokee is also the first vehicle in the world to be equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.4L 4-cylinder with 184hp or the optional 3.2L V6 with 271hp, for just $1,300 more, offering good value. Not to worry, Jeep fans, this new Cherokee is available with three AWD systems.

Mitsubishi will unveil three worldpremiere concept cars later this month at the 43rd Tokyo Motor Show. The AR concept is a next-generation compact MPV, which combines SUV manoeuvrability with MPV roominess. It uses a lightweight mild hybrid system, which comprises a downsized 1.1-litre direct-injection turbocharged MIVEC engine. The GC-PHEV is a full-size SUV with full-time 4WD. It is based on a front engine; rear-wheel drive layout plug-in hybrid EV (PHEV) system comprising a 3.0litre V6 supercharged MIVEC engine mated to an eight-speed

2014 Nissan Rogue You might notice a trend — my 2014 model choices are all compact cars or compact SUVs. This is the direction Canadians are heading when it comes to buying a new vehicle. With this in mind, Nissan has an all-new Rogue compact SUV with enough room inside for three rows of seats and room for 7-passengers. This is practical for people who require extra capacity, but don’t want to buy a bigger or more expensive mid-sized or larger SUV. Under the hood is a 2.5L 4-cylinder used in other Nissan products and is matched to a new continually variable transmission featuring more available ratios and reduced friction. The interior is very well executed, with a dash that looks similar to the bigger Pathfinder. Goes on sale just before Christmas.

Communities in Bloom committee invite families to share links to historic Red Bridge

November 16/2013 Saturday 7:30 pm Sagebrush Theatre Gordon Gerrard, guest conductor Marc Djokic, violin

By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The donors behind nine new memorial benches erected in Pioneer Park and at the Red Bridge each have a family connection to the historic crossing. One family’s mother used to reminisce about diving off the bridge during the summer following her 1936 high-school graduation. Another’s father owned a house a few doors down. For Rae Long, the bridge connection is simple and direct — her late-husband’s family built it. The Long family owned Kamloops Lumber, which sat just below the bridge on the city side. Long said the family told her stories about her father-in-law cutting the bridge’s distinctive directional timbers. When she was approached by Communities in Bloom about donating a bench at the bridge’s Lorne Street entrance, Long said it seemed like the ideal way to memorialize her husband, Darrel, who died in 2010. “If you don’t stop and recognize history, it’s all gone far too fast,” she said. She also wants the bench to be a place she can take her grandchildren — all under the age of seven when her husband died — to remember him. “They can sit on grandpa’s bench and we can look out and talk about lumber and things,” she said. Each of her grandchildren also has a brick with their name on it set into the ground in front of the bench. Besides the new benches,

How does it feel to be eight years old living in poverty? Rae Long and her brother, Roger Parkes, sit on the bench made from Douglas fir timbers from the second Red Bridge. The bench is one of seven installed there to commemorate families with links to the bridge. the family of Long’s husband built the original structure. Dave Eagles/KTW

Communities in Bloom committee members unveiled historical kiosks at both sites that feature information and photos that trace the bridge’s history back to its original construction nearly 130 years ago (it’s since been rebuilt twice). The new installation is the second of three phases

ofTupgrades Communities in Bloom members have planned for the historic bridge. The final plan is to have the bridge lit with red floodlights, a goal the committee hopes to accomplish by 2015, when Kamloops is due to host the national Communities in Bloom convention.

THE RACE TO MARS space programme operates on an amazingly small budget (about $1 billion a year), but it has put dozens of satellites in orbit that provide practical benefits for earthbound Indians: Remote sensing, flood management, cyclone alerts, fishery and forest management, etc. But, that’s all in near space. The question is really whether long-range space exploration is a rational proposition. Nationalism is part of the motivation behind every country’s space program and, while it has its comical side, it does at least persuade the political authorities to

and techniques. It will fill some of the gap left by the loss of momentum in the older space powers and some useful science will get done. But, the biggest reason for welcoming the entry of major new players in space exploration is the one everybody is too embarrassed to mention — the future of the human race. Well, almost everyone. Elon Musk, the founder and CEO of SpaceX, the private company that aims to dominate the delivery-to-orbit service once provided by NASA, actually wants to

create a human colony on Mars in his own lifetime — and he’s 41 now. Musk is a serious player whose large fortune (derived from his creation and subsequent sale of PayPal) is now devoted to manufacturing electric cars and building space-transportation systems. Both projects are prospering and he sees them as providing the financial and technological basis for pursuing his real goal — spreading human beings beyond this single planetary habitat while the launch window for that is still open. Musk was quite frank about that in an interview with Rory Carroll in the Guardian newspaper in July. “The lessons of history suggest that civilizations move in cycles,” he said. “You can track that back quite far — the Babylonians, the Sumerians. We’re in a very upward cycle right now and, hopefully, that remains the case. But, it might not. “There could be some series of events that cause that technology level to decline. Given that this is the first time in 4.5 billion years where it’s been possible for humanity to extend life beyond Earth, it seems like we’d be wise to act while the window was open and not count on the fact that it will be open a long time.” I’ll let you in on a little secret. That is a big part of the motivation (though a rarely admitted part) for half the people who work in any of the national space programs, including India’s. They value the science and they may even revel in the glory from time to time, but that’s what it’s really about. gwynnedyer.com

HE CURSE of Mars also applies to Asian countries. About two-thirds of the attempted missions to Mars have failed, many of them even before leaving Earth orbit, and most of the rest when they tried to land. Japan’s only Mars mission failed in 1998. China’s first attempt failed when the Russian rocket carrying its Mars orbiter into space fell back to Earth in 2011. So, India seized the opportunity to be the first Asian country to go to Mars. Fifteen months after the decision was announced by Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in an Independence Day speech from the Red Fort in Delhi, India’s half-tonne Mangalyaan vehicle blasted off from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre on the country’s east coast on Tuesday, Nov. 5. It is already in Earth orbit and, within two weeks, it will set course for Mars. Unless the Mars Curse gets it, of course. There is something faintly ridiculous about India and China racing to be the first Asian country to reach Mars, but it’s no more ridiculous than the Russian-American space race of the 1960s. Besides, to be fair to the Indian Space Research Organization, the launch window for making a relatively low-energy transition to a Mars orbit will close before the end of this month — and it won’t open again for more than two years. Once Mangalyaan gets there, if it does, it will go into orbit around Mars and carry out various scientific experiments, notably a search for methane (an indicator of the presence of life) in the Martian atmosphere. At this point, various arrogant and/or sanctimonious people will point out the American Mars rover Curiosity has already reported finding no methane on Mars and that India is too poor to be indulging in such foolishness anyway. The Indians will reply that NASA, the American space agency, also said there was no evidence of water on the Moon

Breathe to a better brain

T

HERE ARE SOME researchers who now believe deep breathing could be the most powerful brain-management method we have because breathing is one of those automatic or unconscious bodily systems we can also control consciously. In other words, we breathe without thinking about it but, when we do think about it, we can control or even stop breathing. Once again, Western health practises have been slow to catch up with Far Eastern methods, where deep breathing has been used as a central feature in many medical treatments for centuries. Deep, controlled breaths differ slightly from place to place but, essentially, it involves three basic components: • Inhale deeply through the nose for a count of five, expanding the abdomen; • Hold your breath for a bit; • Exhale completely through the mouth for a count longer than the inhalation. Research has shown that this technique helps to calm a person by completely unwinding the fight-or-flight response in our bodies. When you look at all the research done lately on breathing, there are five very good reasons to pay attention to your breathing styles: • Managing stress: This is the most direct application of controlled breathing and the one we

hear about most. It may be the most important way we prevent our brains from keeping us in constant stress. • Managing anxiety: Controlled breathing stimulates the vagus nerve, which runs from the base of the brain to the abdomen and impacts the nervous system responses and lowers heart rate. Along with this, the vagus nerve may also play a role in treating depression, even in people who are resistant to antidepressant medications. • Lowering blood pressure and heart rate: Research suggests that when practised consistently, controlled breathing will result in lower blood pressure and heart rate, which in turn results in less wear and tear on blood vessels. Try this while you are waiting for your doctor to enter the examination room and impress her with your low blood pressure. Over time, using controlled breathing to lower blood pressure and heart rate can help prevent stroke and lower risk of cerebral aneurysm. • Sparking brain growth: One of the more intriguing research

developments involving controlled breathing is that when it’s used to facilitate meditation, the result can be an actual increase in brain size. Specifically, the brain experiences growth in areas associated with attention and processing of sensory input. Best of all, this effect seems to be greater in older people. • Deep cell transformation: An unexpected discovery is that controlled breathing can alter the gene functioning involved in immune systems, energy metabolism and insulin secretion. In essence, controlled breathing combined with meditation helps to treat diabetes and heart disease — and fights off the common cold. It seems like we are frequently talking about how our mental health and physical health are intertwined and nothing is as basic as our breathing to highlight that point. So, breathe your way to better mental health and, if you have suggestions or questions for us, contact us at kamloops@cmha. bc.ca and follow us on Twitter @CMHAKamloops, because we always love to hear from you.

࠙ࠓࠜࠜࠓࠢࠖࠒࠓࠤࠗࠑ࠙

EVELYN CHARLOTTE

August 28, 1945 – October 30, 2013 It is with great sadness we announce the passing of William “Bill” Gordon Whyte on Wednesday October 30, 2013 at Royal Inland Hospital, in Kamloops, British Columbia. He is survived by his loving wife Sharon; daughters Lori and Shauna (Norm) Wojak and son Brad (Megan). Grandchildren; Danielle, Kayla, Liana, Hunter, Scotia, adopted grandson Josh Spink and great-granddaughter Zoe. He will be sadly missed by his sister Norma (Blake) Price and brothers in-law Robert Black, Laverne (Ruth) Clary and Sister-inlaw Janice Werbenuk.

FOREMAN Evelyn Foreman of Kamloops passed away on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at the age of 98 years. She is survived by her loving children Dennis Foreman of Australia, Richard Foreman of Penticton, BC and Wanda (Dave) Mitton of Kamloops, BC. Also left to mourn are many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Bill was pre-deceased by his parents, William Gordon and Edna, his brothers Gary and Jim and his sister-in-law Aileen Black. He was born in Grandview, Manitoba on August 28, 1945. Early on in life he developed a passion for the great outdoors, which he never lost. He was a true sportsman – fishing and hunting were definitely his game. A pipefitter by trade he worked for Gulf Refinery and retired as a maintenance specialist for Petro Canada. Bill and his soul mate Sharon enjoyed 47 years together of happy marriage. Raising their family was their greatest enjoyment in life. Though he will forever be missed, he has left us with a lifetime of memories, and a legacy of love.

Evelyn donated her knitted socks and mittens to the New Life Mission.

A private family graveside memorial will be held at Hillside Cemetery on Thursday, November 7th. An open reception will follow at 1:30 pm.

Kamloops bidding to host national-team centre By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T’S A LONG SHOT, but Canada’s best female volleyball players might spend a four-year term in the Tournament Capital. The City of Kamloops and Thompson Rivers University are bidding to host the Team Canada Women’s Volleyball Centre in Kamloops from 2016 to 2020. “It’s a year-round program where players live in the community and train and compete at the national level,” said Sean Smith, the city’s liason on the host committee. “Currently, they’re in

Winnipeg and they’ve been there for 20 years. They’re looking to move out of Manitoba and looking at other parts of Canada. We’re hoping that they’re going to look favourably toward B.C.” The bid, which features the Tournament Capital Centre as its centrepiece, is in its early stages. Kamloops first has to impress Volleyball BC and become its nomination for the centre. “We’re in some tough competition, with the Richmond Oval and the Langley Events Centre and UBC, but what we have to offer is everything under one roof and we’re right next door to a university,” said Smith, the city’s Tournament Capital co-ordinator.

If Volleyball BC chooses Kamloops, it becomes the province’s nomination for the Volleyball Canada centre. “At that point, we’d be in competition against the Edmontons, Montreals, St John’s

and Ottawas of the country,” Smith said. “It’s a long way off yet.” Volleyball BC is expected to have its decision made by early January. Volleyball Canada is expected to put out its request for proposal early in 2014. “There are two terms to the camp, May through August, when all the players playing overseas come back and train, and September through April, when the younger players that don’t have European contracts are going to school and continue their training,” Smith said, noting some players would attend Thompson Rivers University and work in the city.

“We’ve got a community that these young athletes can afford to live in and potentially establish roots in.” Smith said having the centre in Kamloops would benefit the sport locally at all levels — elementary, high school, university and club — and put another jewel in the Tournament-Capital crown. “We’d be looking to have another high-profile sport to get us some national attention to show Canada what we have for facilities and what we can offer,” Smith said. “We’re building on what we’ve already developed with the B.C. Lions.”

City clears way for MMA event STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Professional mixed martial arts is coming to Kamloops. Unified Combat League is holding UCL 20 Ascension at the Tournament Capital Centre on Feb. 22. There were plenty of hoops to jump through, but the City of Kamloops eventually gave the go-ahead to UCL promoter Jesse Eller. “It wasn’t that the city wasn’t interested, it was that they didn’t want to rent venues to MMA events until all the prop-

er legal avenues were pursued,” Eller said. “It’s been something we’ve been talking with the city council about for two years.” When Bill S-209 passed in the House of Commons earlier this year, the way was paved in Canada for the provinces to create athletic commissions which could regulate and sanction professional MMA bouts. “We are licensed through the athletic commissioner at the B.C. ministry of sports,” Eller said. “We went back to the city and lobbied more

event will likely feature a fighter from B.C. and a contestant from Season 9 of the Ultimate Fighter, but he chose not to reveal their names. There will be fighters from Kamloops on the card.

WolfPack eye Canadian finals, win national soccer awards The TRU WolfPack men’s soccer team is one victory away from competing for a national championship after winning a quarter-final tilt at the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA) Championship in St. John, N.B. TRU blanked the Mount St. Vincent Mystics of Halifax 3-0 on Wednesday, Nov. 6. The WolfPack will play MacEwan University of Edmonton today (Nov. 7) in a semifinal showdown. “I thought we came out strong,” WolfPack co-head coach Sean Wallace said. “Our game plan was to keep possession of the ball. We knew that they would play a defensive style of game — and they did. They did it quite well. But, we were able to get behind their back line and put some pressure on them.” Dion Gouldsborough, Kyle Logan and Kyle Fertile scored for the WolfPack on Wednesday in support

of goalkeeper Travis Froehlich. The WolfPack women’s soccer team played its quarterfinal matchup against the NAIT Ooks of Edmonton at the women’s national championship in Surrey after KTW’s press deadline on Wednesday. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for the result.

Elli Terwiel could use a financial hand on her journey to the Olympics. Sun Peaks photo

Terwiel, Hewitt could use some help Speed-skater Jessica Hewitt and downhill skier Elli Terwiel need money if they are going to realize their Olympic dreams. They are asking for help from Kamloopsarea residents, with the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, just months away. Donate to Hewitt at jessicahewitt.ca/ donate or to Terwiel at makeachamp.com. The cost of training and travel adds up for both athletes.

The Kamloops Long Blades, Hewitt’s home club, will be accepting donations at a pair of upcoming events — the New Gold Big Chill Challenge on Saturday, Nov. 9, and Sports Day in Canada on Nov. 28. Those who donate $20 or more will be entered to win free lessons with the Long Blades and an autographed photo from Hewitt. The club is collecting donations

until Dec. 7. Anyone attending the events will have a chance to sign a Canadian flag that Hewitt’s family plans to take to Sochi. Sun Peaks Resort is aiding Terwiel in her effort to get to Sochi by hosting a contest of its own, which will see five lucky winners skiing or snowboarding before the resort opens to the public.

‘I was lucky to survive’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

T DOESN’T MATTER WHAT THE CALENDAR SAYS — EVERY DAY IS REMEMBRANCE DAY FOR THOMAS BOWEN JONES.

The 91-year-old — who earlier this year became the only veteran in Kamloops to be awarded the Arctic Star, a British military honour for soldiers who served above the 66th parallel — survived two close calls serving with the British Royal Navy in the Second World War, but insists he’s not a hero. “I’ve been a lucky man,” Jones told KTW. “But, I’m not a hero. “The real heroes are the ones who died for their country.” Growing up in the small Welsh village of Waunarlwydd, Jones quit school at age 17 to join the military. He said he initially wanted to join the Air Force — but his mom put a stop to that after three fellow villagers died in the skies. “My mother said, ‘You’re not going there,’” he said. “’You follow your brother on the ground staff.’” So he did — sort of. “I was called up at 19 and I had training as a seaman,” Jones said, describing his job as that of an electrical mechanic on Navy vessels. “Our job was to hunt the U-boats and kill them and destroy them.” Jones’ first close call was on Feb. 20, 1944, aboard the HMS Woodpecker. “We had destroyed six U-boats and we’d used up all the

charges on the Woodpecker,” Jones recalled. “That’s whenn we got hit by a torpedo.” The Woodpecker’s stern was blown off and it would eventually go down, but Jones and much of the crew made it offf safely. lose Jones’ next close call was almost a b. year later, on Feb. 17, 1945. utiful “It was a beautiful day,” he said. “The sea wass all ell calm. Then all hell ause broke loose because iti underd the U-boats were waiting neath.” Again, Jones made it safely to another ship and returned to shore. “The journeys back and forth were terrible,” he said. “We were very cold — bloody cold, as we used to say. “But, we carried a punch, those ships did.” All told, 19 villagers from Waunarlwydd — including two of Jones’ relatives — were killed in the Second World War. Through his service, Jones met

his future wife, Nancy, who served in the British Women’s Royal Naval Service. They became engaged and were married after the war ended — a marriage that lasted 64 years, until Nancy passed away. “I was lucky to survive and get married and have a lovely baby

daughter,” Jones said. In the 1970s, when Jones’ daughter and her young family decided to move to Canada, Jones and his wife followed suit. Having spent decades in the Lower Mainland, Jones has called Kamloops home for the past 14 years.

He was presented the Arctic Star honour on Sept. 14 in a ceremony at the Royal Canadian Legion branch on Lansdowne Street. “They did a good job,” Jones said. “I’m giving them full credit for everything that went on that day.”

Being with the construction branch of the Engineers, Glenn did not technically see combat in the Korean Conflict. By accident, though, one day he and a North Korean soldier encountered each other across a small creek. Both dived for cover and lay there, looking at each other across the water. The North Korean moved first and Glenn shot and killed him. He always said that looking into that man’s eyes and then having to kill him was the biggest regret of his life. He last told me that story in 2009, a year before he died, and it still brought him to tears all those years later.

FTER BEING LED TO a semi-circle of rearranged dining-room chairs, where a dozen or more other people look up with a mixture of real and pasted-on smiles, I’m worried. When I’m handed an inflated purple balloon with a slip of paper coiled up inside, and warned by the game leader, “Don’t pop it early,” my heart begins to beat sideways. And when the person next to me offers a mutually understood look of anticipated humiliation, I know it. We’re in hell. And hell looks a lot like a surprise birthday party. It’s not the first, and likely not the last, clandestine celebration I’m likely to attend. Not because people might stop wanting to throw them. Rather, because I intend to become better at talking them out of it. Or catching the flu. Or both. For now, however, it’s too late. I’m here. And no amount of

eating competition, where I come in last and lose a critical bit of dental work. After that, we pair off and one partner, with their mouth full of dry crackers, whispers a secret instructions into the other partner’s ear. I don’t understand the point of the crackers, but with crumbs in my ear, I allow someone to tie a string to my back belt loop, after which I bob up and down and around, trying to make the end of the string go into the mouth of a pop bottle placed on the floor. Dollar-store prizes are handed out to winners and losers alike. Then, and only then, are we allowed to tuck into the cheese dip. It’s good cheese dip, too, made with a creamy blend of three white cheeses, melded together with cream and mildly spiced with chilies and cumin. By now, with a trip to the bowling alley still ahead of us, I need a bowl of cheese, which is as close

to a bowl of courage as I’m going to find. Cake comes next. And when I can’t figure out how to end it all with a plastic fork, I pull on a second pair of socks to protect me from a visceral dread of rented shoes. As we all pile into cars to head to the lanes, I get to sit next to Chefhusband for the first time today. He pastes on a smile that makes me laugh and we get ready for one more game.

Is the increasingly early onset of darkness getting you down? Lighten up with the Kamloops Arts Council’s Lumiere Lantern Parade. The parade itself will take place on Thursday, Nov. 28, but there are three workshops before to help participants shine with their lanterns. The workshops are Nov. 14, Nov. 21 and Nov. 28, all at Lansdowne Village and all between 3 p.m. and 6 p.m. The parade is slated to begin at 6:15 p.m. on Nov. 28 at Lansdowne Village. Participants and lanterns will march to Stuart Wood elementary for prizes and entertainment, culminating in the lighting of the St. Andrews on the Square Christmas tree at 7:15 p.m. The first-place lantern will win $100. There will also be a prize for the best lantern created by a Thompson Rivers University student. There is no charge for the workshops or the parade.

The biggest used-book sale in Kamloops is back for 2013 — at a new location. Barb’s Used Book and Music Sale, in support of the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, will be held at Aberdeen Court, 302-1150 Hillside Dr. adjacent to Aberdeen Mall. Organizers have secured a 6,000-square-foot space for this year’s event, slated to run from Nov. 16 to Nov. 30. Starting on Nov. 12, anyone can bring gently used books, records, DVDs, CDs and sheet music to donate to the sale. The items will be categorized by a team of volunteers and then sold at bargain prices with all the money raised going to help keep the KSO running. Barb’s Used Book Sale is the KSO’s longestrunning and most-successful fundraiser. For more information, call 250-372-5000 or email info@kamloopssymphony.com.

CFBX Record Fair this weekend By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

The biggest record store in Kamloops is only open in Sahali Centre Mall for a few hours on a single day of the year. But, organizer Brian Saunderson noted, that’s part of its appeal. “You go to Vancouver and you see a whole bunch of cool record stores,” said Saunderson, who co-ordinates the annual CFBX Record Fair, run-

ning this year on Sunday, Nov. 10. “For one day, Kamloops has that.” The Record Fair is the Thompson Rivers University campus and community radio station’s largest fundraiser of the year, attracting about 400 people last year. When it began seven years ago, the Record Fair had about 20 vendors in a room at the university. It has since grown to include about 40 tables.

‘Pretty much everything musical’ X From B13

The 2013 iteration looks like it could be the largest yet. “It’s not thrift-store stuff,” Saunderson said. “There’s serious record collectors in town and we’ve got out-of-towners coming from Calgary, Vancouver, Kelowna.” Saunderson, a former record-shop owner, said most vendors are there to sell vinyl, but there’s more than records up for grabs. “We’ll have stereo equipment, musical instruments,” he said. “We’ve got posters coming from Calgary, rock-and-roll T-shirts. “Pretty much everything musical will be at the fair.” For those who are new to or just getting back into the vinyl game, the Record Fair will also have turntables for sale. The fair has proven Kamloopsians have stockpiled seri-

ous record collections. “You hear stories, and they’re true, of guys who have tens of thousands of records in their basements,” Saunderson said. “It’s sort of like they’re hoarders, but it’s a library.” “There’s guys who have basements full of Beatles and Stones and Zeppelin and jazz and blues.” There is usually a diverse range of music on offer at the Record Fair. There are rock classics, but the selection also caters to punk, new wave, metal and hip-hop fans. “Everyone leaves with something under their arm,” Saunderson said. The CFBX Record Fair will take place on Sunday, Nov. 10, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., at the Sahali Centre Mall, 945 Columbia St. W. Admission to the fair is $2. Money raised will be used to replace aging equipment at the radio station.

Comedian Steve Patterson is having no trouble finding new material these days. When KTW caught up with Patterson by phone, he was following, with some glee, the latest developments in Toronto Mayor Rob Ford’s ongoing crackcocaine scandal, including news that police had viewed a video that may have showed the mayor smoking the drug. “The fact that his office is decorated with grim reaper Halloween decorations and they’re broadcasting that around the world right now is extra funny,” Patterson said “It’s a marvellous time to be a comedian. It’s almost too easy, actually. I don’t know whether to write punchlines or just report the news.” Chances are pretty good that, by the time Patterson’s comedy tour hits Kamloops on Saturday, Nov. 9, Mayor Ford will have worked his way into at least one or two of his jokes. He likely won’t be the lone politician. Patterson also tips his hat to senators Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin whose ongoing battle over expense claims offers its own yuk potential. “I really like to take the positive side of all this,” he said. “Which is that we are making international news on an almost daily basis now for just general stupidity. “As much as you lament the crash of democracy, it’s kind of nice that we have actual world-class incompetence in our politics that is making the news.” The show is a

change from Patterson’s regular gig as host of CBC Radio’s The Debaters. While moderating the twice-weekly throwdown between comics requires him to wax comedic on topics from Dr. Seuss to the eternal pirates vs. cowboys debate (the outlaws, not the sports teams), there’s a certain amount of holding back required. “On The Debaters I’m essentially a referee and the worst thing I could do would be to step on other comics’ jokes,” Patterson said. “I have to hold back, hear what they say and try to add to it when they’re done speaking, if I can.” As moderator, taking sides in an argument is also frowned upon, even if Patterson does have passionate feelings on hobbits and Oktoberfest. “Even though — and I want to be very clear about this — there is no prize money or anything involved, people still want to win and they don’t want me to unfairly influence the debate,” he said. “So, I can’t take a point of view on any of the topics. Whereas, in this show, it’s all topics that I have a distinct point of view on.” Thus, the name of the tour itself: This is Not Debatable. And, as he’s touring the country doing comedy, Patterson is thankful for Canadian politicians. “It’s great to have targets like this that everyone knows and everyone’s talking about,” Patterson said. “I don’t really like when comics make fun of have-nots in the world that are innocent and that haven’t

done anything.” This is Not Debatable hits the

Vitamin C and Lysine Powder Help Prevent Heart Attacks W. Gifford-Jones, MD

W

hy is heart attack the number one killer in this country? Ninety-nine percent of doctors say it’s due to atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries) and that cholesterol lowering drugs are the primary way to treat it. But I suggest cardiologists have closed minds and are ignoring facts that could save thousands of North Americans from coronary attack. Years later Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of vitamin C and lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twentyfive years ago Pauling reported that animals make vitamin C and humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived. Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack. Williams Stehbens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University in New Zealand, proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Dr. Sydney Bush, an English researcher, has now proved that vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Bush took retinal photographs, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C and lysine. One year later additional pictures showed atherosclerosis had regressed in retinal arteries. So what has happened to these monumental findings? Bush, like Semmelweiss, has been ridiculed by cardiologists. One has to ask whether cardiologists, by ignoring his results, are condemning thousands of people to an early coronary heart attack. Fourteen years ago following my own coronary attack, cardiologists claimed it was sheer madness for me to refuse cholesterol-lowering drugs. Instead, I decided to take high doses of vitamin C plus lysine with breakfast and the evening meal, for several reasons.

ENTER

I knew that Dr. Graveline, a physician and NASA astronaut, had twice developed transient global amnesia from taking Lipitor. I was also aware that patients have died from CLDs. Others have developed kidney, liver and muscle complications. I also believed the research of Pauling and Stehbens irrefutable. Now, the work of Dr. Bush has convinced me my decision was prudent. But to take large doses of vitamin C and lysine requires swallowing many pills daily. It’s a tall order for those who dislike swallowing one pill. So for several years I’ve been trying to find a company that would manufacture a combination of vitamin C and lysine powder. Now Medi-C Plus is available at health food stores. The dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal. Those at greater risk should take one flat scoop three times a day. If high doses cause diarrhea, the dose should be decreased. This column does not recommend that those taking CLDs should stop them. This is a decision that can only be made by patients and doctors. Most of today’s, cardiologists are impervious to persuasion. They continue to believe that cholesterol-lowering drugs are the be-all-andend-all to prevent heart attack. They’ve been brain-washed by millions of dollars worth of promotion by pharmaceutical companies. It reminds me of the saying that cautions “It’s not what you don’t know what gets you into trouble, it’s the things you know for sure that ain’t so!” It’s time for cardiologists to have an open mind and stop ignoring this research. As for me – I bet my life on it!

WEEKLY CROSSWORD

And it goes to pot By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Sheila Macdonald has tackled a lot of subjects and styles in her 22 years with the Thompson Valley Potters’ Guild but, when a client summed up her work earlier this year, two types of work stood out in particular. “I had an order and someone said, I think of you as the crow lady and the lady lady, so she wanted something with crows and ladies,” said Macdonald. “Then I just goofed them up.” The results of her experiment — a series of mugs, plates and other pieces featuring human heads on crow bodies and vice versa — will be up for grabs at the guild’s annual winter sale, which runs this weekend. A painter turned textile artist turned potter, Macdonald’s work marries simple, hand-built and moulded forms with hand-painted scenes. By painting the clay before it’s fired, Macdonald said she’s able to get truer, brighter colours than with traditional glazing techniques. This year’s show will feature pieces painted with bright, geometric blocks of colour or various figures, including what Macdonald refers to

as her “silly” nudes and the crows. “For me they’re like crones, wise women,” she says of the birds. “They’re cheeky and naughty and nice and very bright, the brightest of the bird population.” In another nod to crones, Macdonald also paints some of her works with bird feet. “I give them to friends and tell them to keep your crow’s feet on your mug, not on your face,” she said. Macdonald is one of a dozen potters and two weavers selling their wares at this year’s potters’ guild show, which runs at Desert Gardens, 540 Seymour St., from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 9. Besides her crows and crowhuman hybrids, she’ll also have work featuring elves, geometric designs, and a few contributions to the guild’s charity bowl sale. Each artist in the sale has produced a number of bowls that will be sold for $18, with all proceeds going to the Kamloops United Church’s PIT Stop program. Not only does the money go to a good cause, Macdonald said the price is unusually generous for a piece of handmade pottery. “They’re getting them for nothing,” she said.

FAITH

We do not matter to God. We matter to God

I

HAD A GOOD friend, a devout Christian man, raised in a Christian home, whose equally faithful wife developed Parkinson’s disease. This is a terrible illness and, in the five years it took her to die, she suffered terribly. Doctors had a difficult time balancing her medications. Too much and she developed paranoid hallucinations and did not recognize her family. Too little and the wracking pain she had to endure was excruciating to watch. My friend prayed relentlessly, as did our whole congregation. His wife was anointed with oil in the healing ritual of the Christian faith and had hands placed on her by the elders. She suffered and she died — a frail 85-pound

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH wisp of her former self. In my last column, I discussed the character of God and why it was consistent with his character to order the complete annihilation of the Canaanite peoples of Israel. Here we have a case of unanswered prayer, of torturous suffering from an incurable disease by a gentle, faithful Christian soul, despite the earnest and repeated pleadings of dozens of loved ones and friends. Obviously, there are countless other stories

just like this one. It certainly made my friend question his faith. Just what is point of belief in a God who doesn’t answer prayer, who capriciously heals some, but not others, who allows years and years of suffering by one of his faithful ones? That is a very good question. Let me go out on a limb — we don’t matter to God. Wait — we matter tremendously to God. This is the great paradox of our faith. No one can honestly say faithful Christians don’t suffer and die from horrible diseases, senseless accidents or terrible persecutions like other people of differing faiths (or no faith at all). Bad things happen to good people and some bad people enjoy long and prosperous lives. So, where is God in

all of this? If we do matter to God, where is the evidence? Christmas is coming soon and most of us have seen the following situation: You buy a very expensive toy for a two-year-old — costly, hard to find, very high quality, guaranteed to last for years and years. You anticipate the joy and pleasure and long hours of play the little tyke will have with that toy. He opens the package, plays with it for a few minutes, then spends the rest of the day playing with the big box it came in, totally ignoring your precious gift. Doesn’t he know how much thought and financial sacrifice went into that gift? Why is he spending all his time focusing on something that will be in the trash by the end

of the day? How frustrating! But, obviously, it’s a matter of perspective. Big boxes are cool to two-year-olds. They can hide in them, make a fort, play peek-a-boo and generally exercise their imaginations in countless ways. But, at the end of day, it is still something destined for the recycling bin. Likewise, we have a physical body, a mere vapour in the winds of time. It lasts 70 or 80 years, maybe longer, but, in the end, nothing remains but dust and bone. By contrast, we also have a soul, an iridescent shard of the eternal, a gift of immortality crafted in the image of the Creator. It lasts forever. Our bodies, our physical selves, matter, but not that much.

Our souls, though, matter very, very much. The entire Bible, the whole relationship between God and Man, is about how precious and how valuable our souls are to God and why He persistently and repeatedly urges us to focus on that which is eternal. We don’t live forever. We will live forever. We don’t matter to God. We matter tremendously to God. It’s a mystery with no easy answers. What happens to us along this very short physical road we are on may be wonderful or tragic, blessed or full of pain, joyful or replete with barely endurable horrors — or maybe all the above. The important point is how we choose to live despite our circumstances. We take care of our soul by living with hon-

our, with purity, with honesty, with generosity, with love and with faith. Focusing too much on the body, with all its frailties, illnesses and ravages of old age, is a failure of perspective. Don’t fret about the box — it doesn’t last. Not only that, we are promised a brand new box when we get to heaven. Frankly, though, I think there will be a lot of people inside the pearly gates asking, “My God, my God, why did you forsake me?”

We Match Prices! *Look for the symbol in store. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match select items in our major supermarket competitors’ flyers throughout the week. Major supermarket competitors are determined solely by us based on a number of factors which can vary by store location. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and for fresh produce, meat and bakers, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us).
