Thompson Rivers University safety manager Stacey Jyrkkanen shows the new Alertus warning system. Says Jyrkkanen: “My goal is to make sure everybody goes home safe every day.” Dave Eagles/KTW

Getting safety message across — all platforms By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s Stacey Jyrkkanen’s job to imagine the unthinkable. A train derailment like the one that decimated much of LacMegantic in Quebec. An accident on the hazardous-goods road network in the city. A plane falling out of the sky as it approaches Kamloops Airport. A building on fire. A shooter on campus. It’s Jyrkkanen’s job to go beyond imagining it, however, to developing plans to deal with anything that could jeopardize the safety of everyone at Thompson Rivers University.

As the university’s manager of occupational-health and safety, and medical services, she has to develop plans and strategies and figure out how to do something like evacuate a university. Compounding her job is the simple reality that many of the people she interacts with to get her message across are adults — young and old — who cannot even imagine something like a campus shooting happening in Kamloops. Jyrkkanen reminds them that, just a decade ago, that situation did unfold in the city as a provincial-government employee took staff in his office hostage.

Two people were slain before the gunman killed himself. One tool the university now uses is TRU Alert, an emergencynotification system that can send out key messages through desktop and mobile-online alerts should an emergency arise. Jyrkkanen said a lot of time went into preparing the array of messages, based on the type of emergency, so they can be issued quickly. For example, if one building is involved, all that would be required would be to update the preset message with that information and then send it out to emails, through texts to

cellphones or to message recorders on home phones. “What we’d be telling them is what has happened, where it has happened and what they need to do to be safe,” Jyrkkanen said. The goal is to make sign-up mandatory; systems are being reviewed that will require students registering for courses to join before they can proceed with their registrations. Jyrkkanen is also encouraging family members to sign up. “Imagine you’re in Toronto and your child is here and you see there’s been something happening here. “You want to know

right now,” she said. Receiving a message on the status of the emergency might reduce phone calls to the campus that could potentially flood the switchboard. Jyrkkanen said she and her department do as much teaching as possible on how to react in the case of an emergency. She noted there has been some discussion the programs should be mandatory for all campus staff. “We could try to teach all the students but, if something happens, you look to your instructor for what to do,” she said. The notification

system is “one piece of a larger puzzle,” Jyrkkanen said. Another way her department is planning to educate campus staff will be through a mock exercise in the spring Discussions are ongoing with the Kamloops RCMP to create the scenario of a shooter loose on campus. The safety department also works with staff to recognize the signs of someone on campus who is in crisis. “Serious violence is an evolutionary pathway,” she said. “It is rare to see someone just snap and do something. So, the good thing about that

is if people can recognize the signs, they can intervene sooner and, hopefully, avoid anything more serious happening.” The notification system, includes include status updates online to which anyone can refer. That messaging component requires police assistance to create the proper messaging, Jyrkkanen said, because the reality is, in the case of someone causing the safety issue, they might also be receiving the threat-assessment information on their phone or tablet. “My goal,” she said, “is to make sure everybody goes home safe every day.”

Bust, a BC Conservation Office dog trained to track wild animals, was attacked and killed by a cougar in the Tranquille Valley on Saturday, Dec. 28. Bust’s partner, Boomer, was also attacked by the big cat, but survived.

Mourning Bust after cougar attack By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Boomer is “living the lifestyle he’s never lived before” these days, according to his owner. But, as the dog recovers from injuries sustained in a cougar attack, Kevin Van Damme sees something is gone from his dog. It’s the loss of a partner. Boomer and Bust were the first official canine unit for the province’s conservation office, dogs trained to track. They were doing just that during a highrisk situation in the Tranquille Valley on the weekend. An injured cougar had been seen living

under a building and circling houses, looking for food. On Saturday, Dec. 28, Van Damme and his dogs went out to track the cougar and Bust — who the conservation officer said was the leader in the twodog team — found the cougar. By the time Van Damme and Boomer got there, however, the cat had attacked and ultimately killed Bust. Boomer, as partners do, ran in to help his buddy, Van Damme said, and was also attacked. “It’s amazing how he got away after what was about a 15-second attack,” Van Damme said. “Boomer was screaming for quite a while. It may have been

me screaming, too, that caused the cougar to not clamp down.” Van Damme ran to his dogs, holding Bust as the dog died. Boomer lay nearby, bleeding and in shock. “At the vet hospital, the vet scrubbed and disinfected his wounds and he just sat there,” Van Damme said. “Boomer had a lot of respect for Bust. “These dogs’ specialty is to track wildlife and they put themselves at risk with larger animals. “It’s instinctive, but I don’t know if they really get the danger they’re in.” Van Damme, who used his own dogs for years before asking the conservation office to approve a canine unit,

is not sure if Boomer will be able to go back into the field. While he knows the dog will make a full physical recovery, Van Damme said dogs can get emotionally scarred by such encounters. He is confident the service will find another dog for the unit, simply because of the way it “embraced and supported it” when he asked more than a year ago. For now, however, Van Damme’s focus is on Boomer. “He’s been missing Bust from the moment it happened,” Van Damme said. “He had significant trauma and now he’s more reserved. The wind is out of his sails.” The cougar was eventually killed.

MORTGAGE MATTERS Credit Score and Home Buying Part I Does living a debt-free lifestyle make you the best candidate for a mortgage? You manage your money well and you purchase only what you can pay cash for. You have no credit cards or loans of any kind! You must be what every lender dreams of when it comes to obtaining a mortgage, right? Well, not so fast… Let’s take a look at one of the key aspects of lending: your credit score. When applying for a mortgage, your credit score weighs heavily when it comes to the mortgage rates you will be offered, the lenders who will work with you or whether you will be denied in your search for a loan. In essence, it can make or break your mortgage application. By definition, a credit score is simply a measure of your proven habits of repaying debt. For that reason, you must repay something to have a positive score, like credit card payments, car payments and small bank loans to name a few. People who do not have or use credit cards and insist on paying cash for everything are often surprised when they are refused for a mortgage because they believe their habit of paying cash should reflect “good credit”. Credit scores are rated on a point system, ranging from 0 (no credit), to a maximum of 900 (perfect credit), with the general minimum credit needed for a mortgage sitting at around 600 points. A person who pays cash for all things will likely have a 0 credit score because they have zero history of repaying debt. So what does this mean to a first time homebuyer? Do your credit card repayment patterns reveal good things about you? As a rule of thumb, a person should use two credit cards regularly and pay them off each month to build a positive credit score. A repayment for a bill as little as $10 will build your score and produce a proven habit of repaying debt. There are two major credit score suppliers in Canada: Equifax and Transunion. Each has a credit education center for those who would like to do further reading: www.equifax.com/home/en ca • www.transunion.ca Equifax offers a free mailed copy of your credit report at www.equifax.com/contact_us/en_ca. Both these links are found under resources on my website www.mortgagebuilder.ca. Look for Mortgage Matters “Credit Score and Home Buying Part II” when I will examine several factors that lower credit score and boost credit score for those looking to maximize their score prior to a home purchase.

COVER PAGE STORY

TRACKING SISTERS — MARK BY MARK STORIES BY DALE BASS • STAFF REPORTER • DALE@KAMLOOPSTHISWEEK.COM

Then, a Seattle skier vanishes

A

TINY KNICK IN the windswept, hardened ice surface was all it took. A search team called to backcountry near Sun Peaks Resort had hope two sisters lost somewhere on the mountain would be found. The volunteers from Kamloops Search and Rescue (KSR) pressed on and found another mark, this one a bit more defined, that also looked like it had come from a snowboard. They kept going and saw new tracks, marks that looked like they might have come from skis — and searchers were pretty sure the sisters were somewhere ahead. The trackers kept going and, after doing a hairpin turn as they fol-

lowed the tracks, they came across the snowboard. A bit farther on, they found the skis and marks that showed at least one of the two sisters had crawled through the snow for about 100 metres. Searchers kept going and found the siblings about 12 kilometres from their last known point on a road that heads to Adams Lake. “It’s bizarre why they went down that road,� said Alan Hobler, Kamloops Search and Rescue’s manager who was among those out overnight on Friday, Dec. 27. “When we found them, they were done. They were completely spent,� he said. A longtime, recently retired, paramedic who also volunteers for KSR told Hobler when the pair was safe and warm, that,

“in all his years, he had never seen anybody so done.� While the volunteer searchers were out in the fog and dark, the sisters’ mom, dad and brother were doing their best to stay busy and not dwell on the what-ifs in their heads. The family spoke to KTW and asked their names not be used because they’re not sure how people will react if they find out who they are. Both experienced skiers, the two sisters had planned to go from the Crystal chair to the West Bowl, but missed direction signs in the fog and ended up crossing over the top of the area by Todd Lake. The mother said her daughters went out of bounds when they started following some tracks,

thinking those would take them in the right direction. However, by about 1 p.m., they realized they were lost and called their dad. “It was amazing to see it come together,� the mother said of search preparations. “At first, it seemed to take forever for them to get it organized, but I’m in awe of how they can manage. Once it happened, it was so extremely thorough and organized.� Her younger daughter managed to reach her brother at about 2 p.m., and let him know they had a granola bar and three sets of Hot Paws hand warmers. The brother told her to turn her phone off once he learned the battery was down to about 20 per cent, telling her to use it only when required. He spent hours with Rogers, trying to use the GPS in the phones to try to locate the pair, the mother said. They didn’t have the right applications on their phones for him to do so. Now, however, they do. “I’ve walked them through how to put them on now,� the brother told KTW. The mother has praise for Sun Peaks staff, in particular a ski patrol person who, once he learned the girls were missing, hopped onto a snowmobile and spent more than two hours checking their last known location. Mom started cooking,

assuming her daughters would be hungry when they were found. “When� was the operative word, the word she and her husband clung to as the night dragged on. “It was the most scary thing in my life,� she said. “My kids are not risk-takers. It was a bad call [trying to go to the other location in the fog], but then they made good decisions. Once home, her older daughter told her she was glad she had paid attention to a safety video in Grade 7 that gave instructions on how to build a shelter. She was trying to do that, using branches to protect her sister, when the pair was found. The family hopes others learn from what happened to the sisters and realize there are rules when one interacts with Mother Nature in the winter. Take some granola or chocolate bars with you. Wear layers of clothes. “And, if mom tells you to put on wool socks or merino or an extra layer of clothes or take another granola bar, maybe it’s a good idea,� the mother said. She noted her family plans to make a donation to Kamloops Search and Rescue to supplement their heartfelt thanks for their help. “Here it is, Dec. 27, they could have been home having a nice Christmas dinner with their families and they’re here, out there, looking for them. “I’m in awe of them.�

The quest for the missing sisters wasn’t the only search Kamloops Search and Rescue volunteers were involved in on Friday, Dec. 27, and Saturday, Dec. 28. While the majority of searchers looked for the 17- and 23-year-old sisters from Kamloops, volunteers learned a Seattle woman had also gone missing. The search for the American woman was supplemented by a team from Wells Gray, five snowmobiles (and staff to operate them from a snowmobile-tourism operation) and others with backcountry-search experience. They had been on the scene since 3 p.m. and were dealing with impending darkness, 60 km/h winds and the realization the sisters were still on the move somewhere. It became a matter of priorities, Hobler said, and indications from the woman’s ski partner, with whom she was in contact, were that she was safe and staying in one spot. The Seattle woman and her ski partner had been skiing together and were separated by a grove of trees, so her last-known-location was easy to confirm. And, Hobler said, the woman had indicated she was staying put. “We call it, ‘Hug a tree’ because it’s hard to find a subject that’s moving,� he said. Even that search, however, had its moments. Volunteers were using a snowmobile from the resort, one with an alarm the woman at one point texted to her friend she could hear. The team stopped and yelled for her, but heard nothing. They turned the alarm back on and walked in opposite directions until they couldn’t hear the sound anymore. That helped them determine she was somewhere within 200 metres of the vehicle location. Some flares were set off, some bear-bangers used and the woman was found, her cellphone with no power left in it. Earlier in the week, on Dec. 23, search and rescue volunteers were again out in the backcountry of the resort, looking for a trio of 14-year-olds who had gone missing. “That one was horrible,� Hobler said. The boys, once located, were found in an avalanche zone with the rating at high. Volunteers won’t be sent into an avalanche area, particularly one that is at a high rating, Hobler said, so they find other ways. This time, searchers trekked a long route around the area and through trees to get near the boys. From there, they gave the trio directions on how to come out, one at a time, “into the trees to us,� Hobler said A back-country ranger for about 20 years, Hobler said he’s a volunteer with the team because he’s office-bound now and misses being outside. “To me, it’s kind of a hobby and it feels really, really good when you’ve found someone.� Hobler acknowledged the debate that arises every time something like this happens. “A lot of members of the public will be screaming they should be charged for the cost of this,� he said. “But, our perspective is you should never charge a person. We’ve all made mistakes and we’ve made a difference in these lives.�

Medical Services Plan premiums have risen four per cent, effective Jan. 1, the fifth annual increase in a row. Black Press file photo

Medical, pension fees rise By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS

tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Medical premiums for all but low-income B.C. residents have risen with the start of the new year. The provincial government is increasing its Medical Services Plan premiums for the fifth straight year, by four per cent across the board. This week, the Canadian Taxpayers’ Federation (CTF) released its annual survey of tax and other payroll deductions, calculating MSP premiums in B.C. have risen 28 per cent since 2010. Effective Jan. 1, the monthly health premium for a single person rises to $69.25 from $66.50. In 2014, families of two pay

$125.50, up from $120.50, and families of three or more pay $138.50, up from $133.00. Many full-time employees have their MSP premiums paid by their employer. People earning $30,000 or less are eligible for reduced premiums on a sliding scale, with premiums eliminated for those earning $22,000 a year or less. The B.C. government has used the increased MSP revenues to offset the long-term growth of health-care costs, which are approaching half of the total provincial budget. Finance Minister Mike de Jong’s 2013 budget projected health spending to increase 2.3 per cent in the current fiscal year, 2.7 per cent in the year beginning April 1 and 2.2 per cent the fol-

lowing year. The government’s critics called that unrealistic after years of increases of more than five per cent. The CTF reports that Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance payments are also going up for many people, despite a federal government pledge to freeze EI premiums for three years. In its New Year Tax Changes report, the CTF calculates maximum EI premiums will increase by $23 in 2014, totalling $914 for the year. The maximum employee Canada Pension Plan deduction, charged to those earning $52,500 or more, goes up $70 to $2,426. Employers match employee CPP payments dollar for dollar.

Learned said the driver of the car stayed at the scene and witnesses confirmed the vehicle only brushed Hubic and did not hit her directly. Learned said RCMP were advised Hubic died on Christmas Day from injuries resulting from the fall.

Resolving to help others as we begin journey into 2014

EGINNING TODAY, my bet is the YMCA/ YWCA will be more crowded than usual, workouts at No Limits Fitness will be shoulder-to-shoulder and, if this is even possible, a parking spot at the Tournament Capital Centre will be even more difficult to find. Yes, it is the first week of January — a week that brings with it the full enthusiasm of New Year’s resolutions, foremost among them the exercise variety, as people vow to lose weight, add stamina, slim down and tone up. The more experienced regular gym users may opt to find alternative exercise routines for the next couple of weeks, after which the vast majority of those resolving to be fitter will fall by the wayside and into familiar routines. Making New Year’s resolutions is always a tough task as one is betting his or her willpower can, based on an arbitrary tick-tock of a clock on one arbitrary day, overcome 365 days (or more) of training one’s mind and body to embrace a far less healthy (but far more enjoyable) lifestyle. Sure, finishing a five-kilometre run may feel fantastic at the very end, when the endorphins mimic the high of the most alluring drug — but leaving the Nikes in the closet and making a date with the couch, Old Dutch, Heineken and the Canucks on TV can rival the delight of a night of absinthe. Resolutions, like promises from politicians and every road in

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS Kamloops in the winter, are meant to be broken. So, rather than contribute to society’s decay and pledge to simply break a vow, perhaps we should spend this week offering 2014 resolutions for our fellow Canadians to attempt to master: • I, (insert name of Conservative MP here), resolve to meet with my doctor, have the Stephen Harper implant removed from my pre-frontal cortex and attempt to organize a thought all by myself. • We, the Kamloops Blazers, resolve to bring transparency to our three-star selection process, the first step of which is sending Tim Bozon a letter of apology for the transgression of Dec. 6, when Digger was chosen as first star over the former Blazer. • I, (insert name of overworked and underpaid city councillor here), resolve to try to balance personal life with work life and cut down on the many hours spent working as a city councillor. If I, the overworked and underpaid city councillor, skip a ribbon-cutting ceremony, a

planter competition, a chamber of commerce social and the odd outof-town, out-of-province or out-ofcountry vacation, er, work trip, it just might be possible to recover 50 per cent of my time. • We, the Canadian Union of Postal Workers, resolve to fight with tenacity the decision of Canada Post to terminate urban door-to-door delivery. Joining us in our fight are unions representing the horseand-buggy industry, members of the Save the VHS Club and a few Blockbuster employees with time to kill. • I, (insert name of Canadian senator here), resolve to resolve that irritating expense controversy thing that focused on my dear colleagues Pamela, Mike and Patrick and get back to the business of cashing taxpayers’ generous cheques and snoozing in the Red Chamber for eternity, as the constitution intended. • I, (insert name of B.C. Liberal MLA here), resolve to step aside the next time the premier loses her seat and needs a quick replacement — and I resolve to maintain, with a straight face, that such a sacrifice has no link to future plum postings with healthy pay in exotic foreign locales. • We, proponents of Sedric’s Water Park, resolve to build the greatest water park Kamloops has ever seen. This year. For sure. We really mean it this time. Seriously. We do. Honest. Really. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com twitter.com/ChrisJFoulds

It’s a new year but, as with all things in life, what is new is old. The year 2014 will begin as previous years did — with myriad increases in the cost of living. From medical premiums to ICBC rates to BC Hydro charges to the annual hike in municipal property taxes, the year will begin with our pockets picked far more voraciously than they are filled with any semblance of a pay raise to compensate. What’s new is old in the political world, as well. This year will see the B.C. NDP attempt yet again to find its way out of the wilderness as it elects a new leader. Wasn’t it only a few months ago that Adrian Dix was measuring the drapes in the premier’s office? In Kamloops, and in communities across the province, voters will elect a new city council, though it seems like only yesterday that a longshot named Dieter Dudy very nearly defeated heavily favoured incumbent Peter Milobar in the mayor’s race. Kamloops is the Tournament Capital of Canada and, as such, will be host to numerous worldclass sporting events in 2014 — including the Brier (Canada’s men’s curling championship), North American, Central American and Caribbean Under-23 Athletics Championships and the Hockey Canada Four Nations Cup. And, of course, the ongoing saga that is the proposed Ajax copper and gold mine will guarantee what is new is old in our fair city. Individually, one can indeed do something new and we should all use the changing of the calendar to improve our lives and the lives of others. Go for that walk, join that running club, commit to taking those music lessons, save for that dream trip, pledge to volunteer at that soup kitchen, make time for your children, work less and play more, stop every now and then and take a deep, deep breath. It is 2014. Before we know it, it will be 2015. Life is but a series of moments. Enjoy them all.

HO, HO, HO! NOW YOU KNOW Editor: Santa Claus Parade day is an annual tradition. For more than three decades, Kamloops parents have been bundling up their children and bringing them downtown to catch a glimpse of the big man himself. What many don’t realize is the vast amount of behind-the-scenes work it takes to prepare for Santa’s arrival. The committee of elves start planning two months in advance. They bring together representatives from various parts of the community, including sponsors, facilitators, logistics, participants, volunteers and sponsors. The logistics personnel are first in. They include the Downtown Kamloops Business Association, RCMP, City of Kamloops, Rotary Clubs of Kamloops, BC Transit, Kamloops Search and Rescue and CFJC-TV. They close streets, re-route traffic, deliver and setup barricades, book and organize the many entries and much more. The sponsors — Kamloops Square Management, Interior Savings Credit Union, Doubletree Hotel, Kamloops Daily News, Kamloops Toner, KGHM Ajax, Kamloops Branch Foresters — and sponsor non-profits judge entries and host and provide breakfast. Each year, the parade hosts more than 75 floats. Each float has a team of volunteers that dedicates days of work. The teams bring down dump trucks and back hoes, fire trucks, cars, kids, decorations and animals.

They build structures, ride horses and dress sheep. You name it, they do it — and do it well. This already long list doesn’t include the most important inner workings of the parade — the volunteers. The annual Santa Claus Parade would not be possible without its many volunteers — more than 75 of them on parade day. These include Rotarians from almost every club in town who marshal the parade and the head volunteer and chief marshal of the parade, the North Shore’s own Tom Hammer. Tom has been chief marshal for more than a decade — or at least as long as we can remember as we took over the parade in 2004. There you have it — a little look into the underbelly of the annual Santa Claus Parade. With more than 75 entries each year, it is one massive undertaking. There are hundreds upon hundreds of volunteers who dedicate their time and effort in an attempt to bring joy and happiness to all the children of Kamloops. The elves at the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association would like to thank everyone involved for their help in hosting the 33rd annual Santa Claus Parade. It is truly a community event put on by the community itself. Gay Pooler general manager Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association

Editor: The Program for International Student Assessment is an international assessment of randomly selected 15-year-olds in a large number of jurisdictions around the world. The most recent results published earlier this month indicate that, while students in many Canadian provinces are declining in math ability, students in B.C. and Quebec remain competitive with students in other top-performing education systems. These results demonstrate British Columbia continues to be held as one of the premier public-education systems in the world. Few jurisdictions demonstrate the same continued success spanning many governments as the only consistent factor in the system are the teachers who work within it. These results invalidate the provincial government’s need to reform a system that continues to perform well. In fact, it is these reform movements across Canada that are causing harm to the education of students in other provinces. Like any system, the public-education system needs stability and funding, rather than continual change. To avoid the trend that education systems in other provinces have shown, the provincial government needs to provide true stability in B.C.’s public-education system. This can be done by restoring classroom and learning conditions, providing genuine support for teachers and providing appropriate funding to school boards to avoid continual reduction in programs.

Another ringworm quarantine at SPCA By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

One more week of growing cultures has led to another quarantine at the Kamloops branch of the SPCA. Sarah Gerow, animal-care supervisor, said although it appeared a ringworm outbreak had ended, a stool culture from one of the dogs in the North Kamloops shelter showed positive three weeks after the sample was taken for testing. Normally, if nothing shows after two weeks of growing cultures, the animals are considered to be free of the parasite, but the lab continues growing the cultures after that point, Gerow said. “And, one of our dogs tested positive,” she said, noting the dog room at the shelter on Eighth Street is closed. One cat is also in quarantine, but the shelter is open for adoptions of its 30 cats and kittens, two rabbits and two rats. Anyone wishing to adopt a dog is asked call the shelter at 250-376-7722 and be added to a list of people who will be contacted once the ringworm issue is resolved. The shelter was closed and all animals quarantined after a ringworm outbreak in early November, re-opening on a restricted basis on Dec. 16. At that time, however, it was still waiting for results on about 10 dogs and 20 cats. Gerow said early results are expected by the end of the week.

HUBIC Anne Hubic passed away peacefully in Kamloops on December 25, 2013 at the age of 85 years. She is survived by her daughter Deb (Sam), sisters Victoria, Jean (Harry) and Rose (Ed) as well as many nieces, nephews, additional relatives and friends. Anne was predeceased by her husband Metro “Matt”, sisters Emily (Steve), Stephanie (Joe) and Kay (Morris), and brother-in-law Wally. The Reverend Father Pavlo Myts will lead Prayers in the Schoening Funeral Chapel on Thursday, January 2nd at 7:00 p.m. The Reverend Father Peter Nguyen will celebrate the Funeral Mass in Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church on Friday, January 3, 2013 at 11:00 a.m. A private interment will follow at a later date.

RONALD ARCHIE CARSON December 11, 1937 - December 28, 2013 What a Guy! Ron was born in Cornwall, Ontario to Jenny (Price) and George Carson. Survived by his wife Rose (née Mastruk) of 54 years, siblings Helen, Floyd, Dot and Ann. Ron is also survived by children Ron (Polly), Judy (Al Newstead), Debra Marie (Jason Strumecki) and John Mowatt (Yaneth). First grandchildren: Chad, Gerry & Katelyn, and extended family of grandchildren and great grandchildren. Ron left home at 18 years of age to begin his career as a Hudson’s Bay Company factor, Northern Stores Division. He was a fur trader, working in isolated areas where the store was not locked. He hunted and fished for fresh food as supplies and mail were delivered just once a year. He met his future wife, Rose, a school teacher, in Cumberland House, Sask., another isolated site. He sent her a ring by snail-mail when he was transferred. He then told everyone he ordered her from The Winnipeg Free Press. Ron was then transferred to the Arctic on the coast of Hudson’s Bay where the monetary trading system was tokens. He had a pet polar bear cub named Snowball who was later donated to the Winnipeg Zoo. Other unique pets included a snowy owl, a runt lynx, a black bear cub and a timber wolf. Ron then had a long and rewarding career with Indian Affairs. He valued his time working with First Nations people in BC. He was enriched with many friendships. After retirement, he and Rose spent 17 years travelling every winter to Mexico, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru and/or Ecuador. They took Spanish lessons in Guatemala in order to converse more effectively with local people, many who have become lifelong friends. Ron was caring and giving, a big-hearted man. He was like a magnet, drawing children around him everywhere - children who loved him despite often having a fun prank pulled on them. How many kids believed the yarn about his ”polar bear bite” on his elbow? Actually a scar of an operation located there. Ron’s interests in later years were gourmet cooking; seafood cocktail was a favourite to many, gardening, carpentry and framing pictures, and he interfered in so much more. Ron suffered for a year or more with an undiagnosed disease, identified only in the last two weeks of his life: Multi System Atrophy, for which there is no cure. We are eternally grateful to friends and neighbors for assisting Ron and Rose through this ordeal. Special thanks to Dr. Dong, Dr. Hollman, Nurses on RIH 4 North and Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home.

Hearts are red My love is true We had a great time In your life, and mine, too! - Katelyn (11)

Ron preferred that there be no service. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ron’s memory may be made to Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home.

SIMPSON, DR. SHARON DOROTHY RN, BSN, MSN, EdD (Nee Howatt) June 9, 1946 – December 25, 2013

After a short illness with pancreatic cancer, our beloved wife and mother passed away at the Kamloops Hospice on Christmas day.

Mr. Wendell Howatt (Truro, Nova Scotia) and Dr. Eric Howatt (Wolfeville, Nova Scotia). She was generously loved by aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and colleagues too numerous to mention. A good student, she followed a friend in to nursing at P.E.I. hospital and graduated with an RN diploma in 1966. Looking for adventure she first moved to Guelph Ontario then on to Vancouver in 1967. She became an avid skier and decided to stay on the west coast. She enjoyed teaching student nurses at VGH and returned to UBC for a BSN degree in 1971. She was an early faculty member in the School of Nursing at Cariboo College. She went on to earn an MSN degree from 1988 – 1991 at the University of Portland, Oregon. A good teacher and lifelong student, she completed her education doctorate (EdD) from Simon Fraser University in the summer of 2013 prior to her illness. A casual acquaintance as a medical student, Terry Simpson became her husband in June 1973. The family wishes to thank the many friends, colleagues, doctors and family members who have contributed to Sharon’s care and comfort over the past six months. A Celebration of Sharon’s life will take place Saturday, January 4, 2014 at Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way at 1:00 pm followed by a reception. Her ashes will be interred at a later date following a memorial service in Kensington, P.E.I.

City disputes allegation shot dog untreated By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The mother of a woman involved in a Christmas Day incident that saw a dog shot by police wants to know why she was told any treatment for the animal had to be approved by the city’s bylaws department. Debra Milenk said Askim, a 15-monthold Labrador-pit bull cross, remains in a city impound and she is concerned damage from the bullet has affected the dog’s ear. Milenk said she has asked for further tests to determine why the dog continues to shake its head as if the ear is both-

ering it, but nothing has been done. The dog was shot on Christmas Day by an officer who was arresting its owner, Milenk’s 27-year-old daughter, at Milenk’s ex-husband’s house on Kimberley Crescent in North Kamloops. Milenk said her daughter had gone to visit her father and retrieve some items before joining her mom to celebrate Christmas. Milenk said her daughter has had “a horrible year� of problems and has been depressed. She said an argument broke out between daughter and father. Kamloops RCMP said officers responded

to a call of a distraught woman wielding an axe at the home, but Milenk disputed that, saying her ex-husband was angry the daughter had called police earlier on him, complaining about irrational behaviour. “He just said that to get back at her,� Milenk said of the axe call. The dog had been restrained in the basement, Milenk said, but tried to run upstairs when the father opened the door to speak with the officers. It came close to one of the two officers, who shot it point-blank in the head. According to Milenk, the dog was restrained when it was shot.

The dog’s skull, however, saved the animal as the bullet did not penetrate it. Instead, it broke through the skin and whipped around the skull, exiting near the neck. Milenk said when she arrived at the house, the dog was bleeding. She said she wanted to take it to a vet, but was told she could not. “I had to wait for someone from bylaws to show up so Askim sat there, bleeding all over, for three hours until some lady from bylaws came,� Milenk said. The shooting further traumatized her daughter, Milenk said, who

was on the floor, pinned by an officer who was handcuffing her. “All she heard was the shot. She didn’t know if it was her dad, her friend and what it was,� Milenk said. The two women have visited the dog at the city impound yard and, while massaging its head, Milenk said Askim showed signs of pain when her fingers came near one ear. She said she has also been called by the veterinary clinic and asked who will be paying for the Christmas Day treatment. “But, we’re not going there right now,� Milenk said. In the meantime, she

Thompson Rivers University to close Accolades restaurant By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops restaurant that has regularly been called one of the best in the country is closing. Accolades restaurant at Thompson Rivers University has received recognition from Where to Eat in Canada, an independent national restaurant guide. Jason Brown, president of the university faculty association, said he had heard rumours of the closure, but Ed Walker, an instructor in the culinary-arts faculty,

confirmed the impending shutdown, stating in an email to KTW it is “simply a budgetary decision.� The student-run restaurant, which has a focus on local, regional and sustainable food sources, has provided students with a practical way to learn the skills taught in the classroom. In past speeches, TRU president Alan Shaver has identified skills-training programs as a priority the university is expert at addressing. However, neither he nor Christopher Seguin,

vice-president advancement, could be reached for comment on the closure. While Brown did not want to discuss the closure, earlier this year he told the province’s select standing committee on finance and government services the culinary-arts department was at risk of some program closures. “TRU has had a long tradition of connecting to the community through our culinary arts, meat-cutting and horticultural programs,� he told the committee in September when it met in Kamloops.

Patching up our hole-y roads By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s pothole season in Kamloops, but city crews are running behind as they attempt to patch up roadways around the Tournament Capital. City streets and capital projects manager Kristen Meersman said she has reports of potholes across the city as temperatures see-saw from frozen to thawed. But, extra precipitation is making the usual repair work more difficult. “It’s not abnormal but, certainly, we’ve had our fair share of the snow melting, freezing and the freezing rain that’s preventing us from getting to the potholes,”

CAN SHE DIGGER IT? Three-year-old Lily Zinger is delighted to meet Kamloops Blazer mascot Digger during the Blazers’ Sunday, Dec. 29, game against Vancouver. While the visiting Giants skated off with a 4-3 win at Interior Savings Centre, Lily left with memories a toddler can truly cherish. Allen Douglas/KTW

Meersman said. “We’ve been trying to still keep the streets drivable, but we’re not getting to the potholes as fast as we’d like.” She was hoping for drier weather this week, which would give city workers a chance to start patching in the evening. While the city formerly used a cold mixture to fill the pits in the road, Meersman said crews are now using an asphalt-recycling machine that fills the holes with a hot mixture. That has the benefit of staying put longer, but full repair of roadways can’t be done before spring. “Any solution in the winter, it doesn’t bind to the existing road

material,” Meersman said. “It’s not a permanent solution. We’ll have to fix them in the spring anyway, but we hope with this they’ll last a little longer through the winter.” While the number of potholes being reported isn’t unusual so far, Meersman said she’s not sure that will be the case as the city heads into January and February. “The freezing rain and everything has been pretty tough on the roads,” she said. “So, we’ll see over the next month or so how that impacts it.” To report a pothole, call 250-828-3461 or download the myKamloops smartphone app online at kamloops.ca.

FAITH

Dabbling with the occult is risky business

T

HE RITE, The Possession, The Amityville Horror, The Possession of Emily Rose, The Exorcist (and all the sequels). These are just a few of Hollywood’s menu of movies about demon possession. Some claim to be based on true stories. Is demon possession a real phenomenon or is it just Hollywood taking advantage of people’s fascination with the macabre? In Christian theology, demons are fallen angels. Revelation 12 says: “And the great dragon was thrown down, the serpent of old who is called the devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.” The Bible says a considerable amount about demons and demonic possession. Jesus and his disciples were renowned as exorcists, implying that demon possession was fairly prevalent in their day. Some were violent to their hosts, including a little boy whose demon propelled him into bonfires. In another example, Jesus cast out multiple demons from one man, who then invaded a large herd of pigs, causing them to stampede over a cliff. The apostle Paul earned the great enmity of two owners of a possessed slave girl who could accurately predict the future. After Paul exorcised her, she lost her abilities. But, exorcism is not for amateurs. It is dangerous and hard work. The apostle Luke recounts one story in which seven sons of a rabbi named Sceva attempt to do an exorcism. The possessed man “jumped on them and overpowered them all. He gave them such a beating that they ran out of the house naked and bleeding.” The Vatican’s former principal exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, was

CHRIS KEMPLING You Gotta Have FAITH interviewed by Gyles Brandreth in 2000 for the Sunday Telegraph. Amorth is very familiar with demons and their wiles, but cautioned that physical and psychological maladies, such as epilepsy, Tourette’s syndrome or schizophrenia, need to be ruled out before considering possession as the cause of someone’s problems. “Of the thousands of patients I have seen, only a hundred or so have been truly possessed,” he stated. One of the determining signs of a genuine possession is the marked aversion to sacred things — the Bible, the crucifix, holy water or religious speech, such as the name of Jesus. Those suffering from possession tend to become very agitated or even violent when confronted by holy objects or sayings. Amorth related a story similar to the sons of Sceva tale. “During one exorcism, I saw a child of 11 held down by four strapping men. The child threw the men aside with ease.” Other phenomena associated with possession include inexplicable stenches, freezing temperatures, slamming doors, clairvoyant powers usually related to moral matters, unusual distortions of the face or skin, speaking with unnatural voices, levitation or “possessed gravity” (the person becomes physically immovable). Few people who have seen The Exorcist can forget some of the shocking scenes, such as Linda Blair levitating, vomiting pea soup or performing an unmentionable act with a crucifix. Amorth, when asked about the movie, said, “Of course, the special

effects are exaggerated, but it is a good film, substantially exact, based on a respectable novel which mirrored a true story.” The true story he refers to is that of a Maryland boy (not a girl) given the name Roland Doe to protect his anonymity. Roland was 13 and apparently tried to contact a beloved aunt who had died in 1949. The aunt was a spiritualist who had introduced Roland to the use of the Ouija board and he attempted to use it to contact her. He got much more than he bargained for. Strange things started to occur in the Doe household. Furniture moved on its own, objects levitated and marching feet were heard. The family’s Lutheran pastor, Rev. Miles Shulze, arranged to have Roland sleep at his house for observation. Shulze heard vibrating noises coming from the bedroom and large scratches appeared on the wallpaper of the room. Convinced that the possession was real, Shulze referred the case to Catholic priest Father Edward Hughes. During the exorcism (held at Georgetown University Hospital), Roland inflicted a wound on Hughes that required stitches and the attempt failed. On a family visit to St. Louis, Roland developed strange welts on his body and another exorcism was attempted. The priests saw furniture move on its own, observed Roland’s extreme aversion to holy objects and heard him speaking in a guttural voice. He also broke the nose of a priest. But, after many attempts, the exorcism was eventually successful. Dabbling with the occult is extremely risky and may lead to demonic possession. Fortunately, Jesus has granted believers the authority to exorcise these spirits, but it is not a job for the weak in faith.

LOCAL NEWS

Prosthetic gives duckling a new leg up on life By Lachlan Labere SICAMOUS EAGLE VALLEY NEWS classifieds@eaglevalleynews.com

Dudley has taken to walking on two legs like other ducks take to water. On Wednesday, Dec. 18, Dudley the call duck’s right limb was fitted with a prosthetic leg and foot. Only two days later, Dudley’s owner and caretaker, Debbie Fortin of K9-1-1 Animal Rescue and Services, said the little water fowl was walking on both legs as though he had them his whole life. “He also thinks now that he has a leg, he can run away,” Fortin said

with a laugh. “When we go to get him now for his bath, because he still has to have rehab, instead of just sitting there and letting us pick him up, he’ll try and run away — and he’s very successful at it, but he’s in a confined area. “It’s really good to see that happen because before he couldn’t.” Dudley lost his foot and part of his leg when he was a wee duckling. Not long after, Fortin’s son, Brandon Schweitzer, contacted his friend Terence Loring, a mechanical engineer who recently started his own Kamloops-based

company — 3 Pillar Designs. Loring specializes in 3D architecture and design and paid the duckling a visit, deciding to take on the challenge of designing a prosthetic leg. Loring came up with a few different designs and two models, with the actual printing of prosthetics being done by Canadian company Proto3000. The first design was at a wrong angle and more complex than needed. “I thought I’d try to make it very realistic, but it just made it super cumbersome, so I decided to go back to something very simple

and build on that,” Loring said. “At least we got him walking and, if need be, we can do something a little more complex. “But, at this point, at least he’s got his balance and everything.” Loring and Proto3000 donated all of their time and materials for the project, for which Fortin is grateful. Dudley is still getting used to moving on the new leg, with some surfaces and obstacles that he was used to going over with one leg posing a bit of a challenge. But, in general, Fortin said, he’s getting around better and his health is improving as a result. “He also now is

won’t stop circulation . . . you can see it’s doable.” When news of his humane design project broke, Loring said he received calls from other people with injured animals, including someone with an emu that had lost its leg. Loring was interested in taking on the project; however, due to other complications, the animal had to be put down. And, while his curriculum vitae includes much larger design projects, Loring is enthusiastic about his work with Fortin and Dudley and how he was able to have a positive impact on both their lives. “A lot of people say it’s trivial and, in some ways. it might be, but

using his wings more because he’s more upright, so he’s able to flap them fully open,” Fortin said. “We had to clip his wings so he doesn’t fly, but he has his flight wings, so he spreads them and flaps them because he can stand up and be like a real duck. “He seems pretty proud.” A remaining challenge is the fastening of the prosthetic to Dudley’s stub — something more secure is needed. “We’re looking into a strap or something to hold the actual leg on his stump,” Fortin said. “That’s a transition we’re making, too, but we’ve got several people trying to come up with ideas that

a lot of people really care for this little animal, so I guess that’s why I really wanted to take this on,” Loring said. “If they think it’s important enough, well, why not?” As someone who cares for animals professionally, Fortin said her eyes are now wide open to the world of 3D printing and the potential benefits the technology can offer animals and humans alike. “There’s lots of possibilities and I know we can’t look at funding those things because we don’t have the financial backing,” she said. “But, just knowing that it is possible to do that gives us a lot more insight as to what we can do.”

GLOBAL VIEWS

Opportunity costs, as Russian bombings prove

I

F RUSSIA SPENT as much on intelligence agencies as the United States does — $52.6 billion in 2013, according to the “black budget” published by the Washington Post last August — would it have been able to stop the suicide bombers who killed 31 people in two attacks in Volgograd early this week? Can you solve the problem just by throwing money at it? And how big a problem is it, anyway? Russia doesn’t really have that kind of money to spend on “intelligence,” so let’s narrow it down to the $10.6 billion that the U.S. National Security Agency spends each year. Of the 16 intelligence agencies working for the U.S. government, the NSA is the one that places the most emphasis on its alleged ability to stop terrorist attacks through monitoring everybody’s communications. Would the NSA’s $10.6 billion, spent in

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH the same way by the Russians, have stopped the Volgograd bombers? We cannot know for sure, any more than we can know if another billion dollars spent in the United States would have stopped the Boston marathon bombers last June. So maybe we should reformulate the question. A total of 785 people have been killed in terrorist attacks in Russia in the past ten years, and Moscow does not pay for an operation remotely comparable to the NSA. In the U.S., a total of 26 people were killed by terrorists in the same period. So, does this mean that the NSA has saved 759 American

lives in the past decade? Probably not. Russia has a far worse terrorism problem than the United States, because some 6 million citizens, living in the Muslimmajority republics of the northern Caucasus, belong to various ethnic groups who see themselves as living under Russian occupation. The United States has no comparable domestic groups, and its ferocious border controls make it very hard for foreign-based terrorists to slip into the country. There was one exception, twelve years ago, when foreign terrorists did manage to get into the United States and carry out an attack. However, the 9/11 attackers were using a brand new technique. Such innovations are very rare, and are only a surprise the first time. No subsequent terrorist attack, in the U.S. or anywhere else, has been remotely as ambitious. The NSA has cer-

tainly not prevented ten 9/11s in the past decade; it’s very unlikely to have prevented even one. But, let us accept, for the sake of the argument, that the NSA’s activities have really saved 759 American lives in the past decade. In fact, let’s round it up to 1,000 lives, to make the calculations easier. That would mean that over the past decade the NSA has spent around $100 billion to save 1,000 American lives. That works out at $10 million per life saved (on the heroic assumption that without the NSA the American terrorism problem would have been even worse than the Russian). Economists talk about “opportunity cost” — when you spend the money on one thing, you are foregoing whatever benefits you might have got from spending it on something else. Are there other ways of spending that $100 billion that

would save more than a thousand American lives? Consider spending some of it on better pre- and postnatal care for poor Americans. Just a billion dollars a year — an extra $250 per baby — would enable the U.S. to get its infant mortality rate down below Cuba’s, maybe even as low as Portugal or South Korea. Over 10 years, that would be 60,000 more American kids who lived to grow up. Or, for another example, take highways. Highway engineers can estimate how many people will die each year on a given stretch of highway fairly accurately. It depends on the width and surface of the road, how many sharp curves and blind hills there are, whether there are guard rails, etc. All those things depend on how much

money you have to spend on that stretch of highway. Approximately 34,000 Americans died on the roads in 2012. Another $5 billion a year, spent on making highways safer, would probably reduce that toll by an extra thousand people each year. Over 10 years, it would save around another 60,000 lives. That’s 120,000 lives saved, and there’s still $4 billion a year left to spend on other lifesaving improvements. You almost certainly end up saving at least 150,000 American lives with your $100 billion investment. That’s at least 150 times better than your return on investing the money in the NSA — and we haven’t yet even considered the cost in alienated allies and violated civil rights of giving the NSA all that money. Unfortunately, Americans dying in infancy or on the

highways don’t make headlines, whereas victims of terrorism do. Politically, their lives are much more important, and so that’s where the money goes. Indeed, even making calculations of this sort about the relative value we assign to human lives is thought to be in poor taste. Never mind. As Herman Kahn, the dean of American nuclear strategists, said when people criticised him for making cold-blooded estimates of how many millions of Americans would be killed as a result of various different U.S. strategies for fighting a nuclear war: “Would you prefer a nice, warm mistake?”

Court dates for accused in assaults A pair of men charged in connection to unrelated assaults on nurses at Hillside Psychiatric Centre are scheduled to appear in Kamloops provincial court this month. David Gray, 56, and Chad Neuendorf, 33, are facing separate counts of assault related to alleged incidents involving staff at the psychiatric facility adjacent

to Royal Inland Hospital. Both men have Huntington disease. Gray is facing one count of assault stemming from an alleged incident on Dec. 14. He’s scheduled to appear in court on Jan. 7. Neuendorf is facing two counts of assault. Court records list the offence dates as being Nov. 15 and

Nov. 17. He will return to court on Jan. 23. On Dec. 20, the Union of Psychiatric Nurses held a press conference at which reporters were told staffers at Hillside do not feel safe given the recent assaults. The Interior Health Authority has since responded by saying staffing levels at the facility are adequate.

Mac’s store robbed yet again For the second time in as many weeks, Kamloops Mounties are looking for a robber after a hold-up at a North Kamloops convenience store. Just after 3 a.m. on Sunday, Dec. 29, police were called to the Mac’s store at 205 Tranquille Rd. for a reported robbery. Investigators were told a man, armed with a knife, fled the scene after making off with a small amount of cash. He is described as a white man between 20 and 25 with dark hair and a lazy left eye. On Friday, Dec. 20, RCMP responded to the same Mac’s store after an afternoon robbery. In that instance, a white woman in her late 30s pulled a knife and took cash from the register. She was wearing a red jacket with a hood and grey sweatpants or snow pants. Anyone with information on

either robbery can call police at 250828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-8477.

TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, enjoy an active week ahead that includes a very busy social schedule. Instead of trying to swim against the tide, let it take you along.

SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 You won’t be able to rest until you solve a problem that has been bugging you, Sagittarius. But the solution won’t immediately present itself.

BROWN HUNTS FOR GOLD

The Tim Horton’s BC Junior Women’s Curling Championship in Chilliwack was hanging in the balance at KTW’s press deadline on Tuesday, Dec. 31. Corryn Brown and her Kamloops Curling Club rink were up 5-4 on Kalia Van Osch’s Delta-Nanaimo quartet after eight ends of play. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for the result and for reaction from the River City rink. Brown was looking to repeat as provincial champion, having rolled to a 7-4 win over Van Osch’s team in Coquitlam in last year’s B.C. final. The Kamloops foursome claimed gold at the 2013 M&M Meat Shops Junior Canadian Curling Championships in Fort McMurray, Alta., in February. After winning gold at nationals, the four curlers, each of them now 18, finished out of the medals at the World Junior Curling Championships in Sochi, Russia, in March. The 2014 junior national championships will be held in Nova Scotia from Jan. 18 to Jan. 26., with the 2014 World Junior Curling Championships set to run from Feb. 26 to March 5 in Films, Switzerland.

WolfPack set for Hawaii matches The TRU WolfPack men’s volleyball team is kicking off 2014 in style. TRU, which is enjoying its best Canada West campaign in three seasons, is jetting to Hawaii for training and exhibition matches. The team is going to the island Oahu, where they will play the University of Hawaii. “I know the University of Hawaii assistant coach Jeff Hall,” WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly said. “I was in Hawaii on a family vacation last year and he toured us around a bit and we started talking about exhibition matches. It fit into our schedule for us to come at this time.” The WolfPack will be playing the NCAA Div. 1 Warriors today (Jan. 2) and on Thursday, Jan. 4. “We will be doing some workouts, as well as hikes, to regain fitness,” Hennelly said. “We have planned one day for sightseeing in the North Shore and around the island.

TRU will return to Canada West play on Jan. 10, when the Brandon Bobcats visit the Tournament Capital Centre. Game time is 7:45 p.m. The rematch will get underway at 6:45 p.m. on Jan. 11.

“I feel trips are an important part of any program. It functions as a reward and motivation, and playing NCAA Division 1 teams is always good competition.” Hennelly has taken his team to Europe and

to California in the past. TRU played before some big crowds at home earlier this year, they are expecting the same in Hawaii. “NCAA teams play a different style and it will hopefully mimic playoffs, where you

have to adapt during a match. We always have some type of competition during the break, which is essential to being competitive.” Both matches with the Hawaii will be played at the Stan Sheriff Center.

Paramedics save Tilley’s life after heart attack By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Interior Grasslands Cycling Club coach John Tilley had a heart attack six days before Christmas. If it were not for a group of paramedics, Tilley’s wife Lynda would likely have been mourning his death on Dec. 25. “I just wanted to say thank you to those people who came up here and saved me,” said Tilley, who lives about 26 kilometres up the Tranquille Valley on the Tranquille-Criss Creek Road. “The road was horrible that day. It was icy and snowy. It’s a major canyon with no shoulder — a challenge for any driver at the best of times. These people were just so marvellous.” Tilley walked into his house at about 12:30 p.m. on Dec. 19 and began having heart pains. They quickly became more severe and Lynda called 911. “I’m 75, but I’m fairly fit, too,” he said. “I rode at the games [BC Seniors Games] in August

Lynda Tilley must have been ecstatic to have her husband John home for Christmas, six days after he suffered a heart attack. John coaches the Interior Grasslands Cycling Club.

in the masters category. You’d think if I was going to have a heart attack, I’d have it then. I was

just getting my icefishing hut ready to go to Red Lake and do some fishing . . . you never know with

these things.” The BC Ambulance Service sent a team from Kamloops by road and a helicopter

crew was dispatched from Kelowna. Both units arrived at about the same time and started administering treatment. “If they took me to Kamloops, they’d just give me an injection there to thin out the blood and remove the blockage, but I’d still have to go to Kelowna for the stent treatment,” Tilley said. “And, the trip in the ambulance back to Kamloops would have been 45 minutes. “At 3:15 p.m., I was being wheeled into recovery in Kelowna, feeling no pain and amazingly still awake and alive. “These tremendous paramedics saved my life with their onboard decisions. They get no thanks for what they do and they certainly need to.” He returned home on Dec. 23. Tilley was planning to quit coaching next year because, admittedly, he is getting a little old. His recent brush with death has expedited that decision and he plans to move into the role of director. It won’t be a surprise if he excels in

that position, considering he plugged the club in the middle of a conversation about his near demise. “We’re working on a program with Catharine Pendrel and Cycling BC, trying to get into School District 73 with some learn-to-ride and learn-to-race classes, hoping to get more kids on bikes,” Tilley said. “And oh, there’s the Kamloops Indoor GranFondo and Family Day Festival

on Feb. 9.” He later emailed to say there is a warm-up for the GranFondo. It runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at SaveOn-Foods in Sahali on Jan. 25 and the stationary-bike event is a fundraiser for the MS Society. For more information on the club, visit interiorgrasslandscycling.ca or email interiorgrasslandscyclingclub@hotmail.com. There might even be a coaching position up for grabs.

The lodge at Harper Mountain is shown under construction in the 40-year-old photo to the left, while, below, skiers can be seen lining up on the first day of operation for the hill’s chair lift in 1977.

Music on the mountain By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Max Daburger, like many people, had a dream. He wanted to build a ski hill, a place where he could share his passion for the sport with others. “So, he went looking for a hill,” said his daughter-inlaw, Lisa Daburger. “Literally hiking until he found the right spot.” He found that spot in 1973 on Harper Mountain and, drawing on his construction skills, proceeded to clear trees, using the logs they provided to build a lodge. Four years later, the Huser Ski Lift, named for Max’s business partner, Peter Huser, was built. Huser died three years later in a construction accident. “This was his dream,” Lisa said of Max, “and it’s been kept through the generations.” Max and wife Elisabeth’s sons Martin, Tony, Norman and Edwin, have all been involved; Norm is general manager as the site celebrates its 40th anniversary.

It was always important the facility have a welcoming environment, that it be a place where families would want to come and would feel welcomed when they arrive, Lisa said — a place where “Harper families bring their out-of-town family when they visit.” And, while it’s a popular spot for the novice skier or snowboarder, Lisa said people are often surprised “at some of our higher terrain. We’ve got some excellent runs for expert skiers.” This season, the Harper experience has been expanded to bring in music. “I love music,” Lisa said. “Who doesn’t love music? And there are so many talented people in Kamloops. Everyone’s quite excited about it. “I thought, when we said we’d be adding music, people would say, ‘Oh, that’s nice’ — but people really are excited.” The schedule is still being developed, but the plan is to offer music at least one night each week. Dec. 28 featured Brooke Denill and Corey Hermiston, who had a spe-

cial song on their set list, one written by 10-year-old Max Daburger, named for his grandpa. Mickael Maddison and Chris Brock are scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 4, with Joshua Hyslop — so far, the only non-local performer who will be at the mountain — on Friday, Jan. 10. Tanner Dawson is booked for Thursday, Jan. 16. Other musicians who have expressed interest in performing, but don’t have dates yet, include Luke Desaulnier, Shayne Berlinski, Brett Fichtner, Keegan Robertson, Tyler Norn, Amber Lussier and Jon Treichel. Lisa said it was easy to find musicians; she just posted the idea on the Harper Mountain Facebook page and the responses came in. They’ll be set up in the lodge and plans are to start each night of music at about 7 p.m. The slopes are busy, Lisa said, and will likely stay that way until mid-March. More information can be found online at harpermountain.com.

Lineup set for Kamloops Film Festival By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Canadian films dominate the lineup for the 18th annual Kamloops Film Festival. The 10-day festival, March 6 to March 15, kicks off with one that touches on a controversial Canadian issue — the Alberta oil sands. Oil Sands Karaoke was filmed in Fort McMurray and focuses on some of the people who work in the tar sands as they prepare for a karaoke contest at Bailey’s Pub, a popular gathering place in the Stonebridge Hotel. The 83-minute film looks at five of the oil-patch workers, why they work there, what they think of the controversy — and why they want to win the karaoke contest. The following night sees Sex After Kids screened. The Canadian film stars Paul Amos and Shannon Beckner as newlyweds trying to adjust to a new baby, with various other parents weighing in with their own advice. Saturday, March 8, has three more Canadian films — Cas & Dylan, If I Had Wings and Whitewash. Cas & Dylan, directed by Jason Priestley, is a comedy/ drama about a dying doctor (Richard Dreyfuss) who some-

how ends up on the run with a 22-year-old (Tatiana Maslany). The movie won the Audience Award at the Whistler Film Festival. If I Had Wings was shot in Langley and stars Richard Harmon as a teen who dreams of joining his school’s cross-country track team and of flying. Neither seem likely because he has been blind since he was two. With the help of a First Nations youth, the teen faces his challenges. Whitewash stars Thomas Haden Church as a snowplow operator who accidentally kills a man during a drunken joyride. He hides the body and goes on the run from authorities — and his own conscience. Sunday, March 9, also features multiple flicks, starting with The Broken Circle Breakdown, a Belgium/ Netherlands production about a couple who love each other despite their many differences. Their daughter becomes seriously ill and their love is challenged. Later that day, another Canadian film, this one directed by Bruce McDonald, is screened. The Husband is about Henry (Maxwell McCabe-Lokos), who must look after his infant son after his wife (Sarah Allen) is sent to prison for cheating on

him with a 14-year-old. Henry accidentally meets the youth and it sends him spiralling into disaster. Le Week-End, a British comedy/drama, stars Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan as a couple trying to put the spark back in their marriage with a trip to Paris on their 30th wedding anniversary — where they run into an old friend (Jeff Goldblum). It is scheduled for Monday, March 10. The following night sees The Past, a France/Italy production screened. The drama is the story of an Iranian man who leaves his French wife and their children to return to his homeland. He returns when his wife, who has begun dating an Arab, files for divorce. The film was nominated for one of the top prizes at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and is nominated for best foreign-language film in this year’s Golden Globe Awards. Gloria is on the schedule for Wednesday, March 12. The Spain/Chile production is about a free-spirited but lonely woman who meets a man at a dance club. It has been nominated in the foreign-language category at this year’s Academy Awards. X See CANADIAN A28

Canadian ďŹ lms dominate lineup X From A27

It’s back to a Canadian film for March 13 with No Clue, starring Brent Butt (who will be in Kamloops on Feb. 9 at Sagebrush Theatre in a tour promoting the comedy.) Butt also wrote the script for the film, in which he plays a detective trying to help a femme fatale (Amy Smart) find her missing brother. Siddharth is scheduled for Friday, March 14, but has not yet been confirmed. The Canadian drama is the story of a man who sends his young son out for work but learns the boy has been kidnapped by child traffickers. He sets out across India to rescue his child. The final day of the festival features Finding Vivian Maier, an American documentary, and That Burning Feeling, a Canadian comedy/drama. Finding Vivian Maier, directed by John Maloof and Charlie Siskel, is the story of a street photographer whose work, more than 100,000 photographs, was not discovered until her death in 2009. The final film, That Burning Feeling, is a comedy about a real-estate hotshot coming to terms with a social disease he somehow acquired during one of his one-night stands. The movie shared the Best Canadian Feature award at the Vancouver International Film Festival with Rhymes for Young Ghouls. Tickets will be available later this month at Bookland (685 Tranquille Rd.), Moviemart (520 Seymour St.) and the student-union desk in the Campus Activity Centre at Thompson Rivers University. The Paramount Theatre, 503 Victoria St., will screen all films. For more information, go online to kamloopsfilmfest.ca.
