Kamloops United Church pre-school teacher Patti Pernitsky has been educating young minds in Kamloops for a long time. The school marks its 60th anniversary this year and will host an open house on Saturday, Feb. 15, when past students are urged to return and reminisce. Dave Eagles/KTW

UNITED THEY LEARN By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It was just another one-block walk from Kamloops United Church to Stuart Wood elementary, one the church’s preschool teacher, Patti Pernitsky, made every weekday, taking her charges in the before- and afterschool program to class. Outside the then-empty Coast Canadian Hotel building, workers were smashing entertainment centres with sledgehammers. “I stopped and asked them what they were doing and they said they had given a lot away, but nobody wanted these, so they were breaking them up to get rid of them,” Pernitsky said. “So, I smiled and said, ‘Could I have three?’’ When she showed up a few days later, pushing her little

dolly cart, the same workmen laughed and said she’d need something bigger. “Those things are solid wood,” Pernitsky said. Long story short — one of the workers delivered them to the church, got them down to the new nursery-school location in the basement and helped her set them up. That’s been the story of the KUC pre-school since the day it began, Pernitsky said — people helping out, all to ensure the youngsters who go there have a positive, fun, educational experience. It’s a story that marks its sixth decade this year and Pernitsky has planned an open house on Saturday, Feb. 15, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., for people to come back, reminisce, and check out the larger and improved area the school occu-

pies. She knows plenty of grads will come back — and, in its 60 years of operation, the school has a lot of graduates in the city — and is hopeful one in particular, Mayor Peter Milobar, will be there to help cut the ceremonial ribbon at 11:15 a.m. When the pre-school started, there was no kindergarten in B.C. and the school had upward of 600 students tending. “We filled the building from the ground floor all the way up,” Pernitsky said, noting the original structure was later replaced as the church went through renovations. Once the half-day kindergarten was added to the publiceducation system, the school switched to accommodate preschoolers and kindergarten kids when they were not at school. XSee PERNITSKY A14

Kamloops city councillors saw the insides of plenty of airports and hotels in 2013. Three of the city’s elected officials exceeded their individual $5,000 allotment for travel expenses, with two spending almost double the amount to attend meetings and conferences. Council has a global $50,000 budget for travel expenses, which Mayor Peter Milobar said has not come close to being exceeded in his time at city hall. Of the big spenders, Coun. Nancy Bepple, went the farthest in her travels, attending a Federation of Canadian Municipalities Convention in St. John’s in September. Bepple attends three extra FCM meetings each year as a member of the organization’s standing committees on environmental issues and sustainable development, increasing women’s participation in municipal politics and northern and remote communities. Those extra meetings added $5,743 to Bepple’s expense claims for 2013. Her other trips came in at $3,517, for a total

TRU warns of ‘game’ A new social-media drinking game has prompted Thompson Rivers University to issue warning letters and online alerts to its students. “Neknomination” is a drinking game that involves challenging friends to drink alcohol, generally in large amounts, in increasingly dangerous ways. Participants take videos of themselves drinking alcohol, sometimes while performing some sort of stunt or other risky behaviour, before posting it to social media and challenging others to out-do the feat. TRU became aware the game was occurring on campus on Thursday, Feb. 6, and sent warning letters to its residences that night and early the next morning. The university also issued a warning to students on the school’s website in an effort to reach those living offcampus. “It moved really quickly across the country,” TRU dean of students Christine Adam said. “When we saw that it had happened here, and because it has a sort of multiplier effect to it, we really wanted to get a message out to students quickly.”

THIS WEEK On June 4, 2013, Tanya Watkins was sitting on the couch in her Brocklehurst basement suite when somebody in the residence upstairs fired a gun. The bullet passed through the floor and struck Watkins in arm, barely missing daughter Tristan and causing serious injury to Watkins. After the shooting, Watkins and her family, including husband Cory Sabyan, moved to Watkins’ sister’s home in Merritt. Last week in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops, the man charged in the shooting, Trevor Wilvers, had charges against him stayed due to problems with witness testimony. KTW file photo

Charges stayed in shooting trial By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Crown has stayed charges against a man accused of shooting through the floor of a Brocklehurst home and hitting a young mother in the arm causing serious injury. The charges were stayed after a B.C. Supreme Court judge ruled as inadmissible a witness statement to RCMP implicating the accused. Trevor Wilvers was charged with unlawful-

ly causing bodily harm, criminal negligence, assault and uttering threats. Following the Friday, Feb. 7, ruling by Justice Sheri Donegan, Wilvers walked over to his lawyer, Don Campbell, and hugged him. Wilvers remains in jail on unrelated charges. Donegan ruled that statements to police by Trevor Newton and another woman in the Brunner Avenue home at the time of the shooting in June 2013 cannot be used as evi-

dence against Wilvers. Both later recanted, saying in court they didn’t remember anything. Newton had to be arrested and brought to court to testify. The Crown sought to enter the police statements, arguing the recantations were an attempt to cover for Wilvers. It argued unsuccessfully that Newton’s statement to police was done to the highest standard — videotaped — and he accurately described details that were corroborated by other witnesses and physical

evidence at the scene. But, Donegan said Newton blatantly lied in court, noting that, despite testifying he had a complete memory blank from that day due to a drug-and-alcohol binge, he testified Wilvers was not in the home at the time and didn’t handle a gun. “Mr. Newton, in the course of these proceedings, directly lied to the court,” Donegan said. Donegan ruled that because Newton so readily lied in court, he may have fabricated the statement to police

implicating Wilvers. She said it was obvious in comparisons between Newton’s courtroom demeanour and his demeanour on the police videotape that he was intoxicated with drugs or alcohol at the time he talked with police. For those reasons, Donegan said, she cannot allow Newton’s statements to police implicating Wilvers as the shooter. As a result, the Crown no longer had sufficient evidence with which to continue the trial.

Armed with a strong majority vote by members of the Neskonlith Indian Band in the Chase area, B.C.’s transportation minister expressed confidence a project to four-lane the Trans-Canada Highway through deadly Hoffman’s Bluff could begin this fall. The band reported a referendum of members, including those who live offreserve, was strongly in favour of upgrades to the highway west of Chase through Hoffman’s Bluff. It has been the site of numerous fatal collisions for decades. Those fatalities included Neskonlith elders. “To receive a mandate, what I’m told is 97 per cent in favour, is an outstanding signal of support for the chief and the project,” Transportation Minister Todd Stone said of the band and Chief Judy Wilson. Phase 2 of the overall project, designed to eventually four-lane the Trans-Canada Highway between Kamloops and Chase, is slated to cost $42 million for a threekilometre section of roadway squeezed between the South Thompson River on

one side and cliffs on the other. The federal government has committed $18 million to the project. Next steps are to sign an accommodation agreement with the band and then receive approval from Ottawa. Stone said he doesn’t expect delays at either step following the strong vote in favour of the project by the band. With that in mind, a tender for the project could go out in late spring, with construction possible in fall. The widening is part of a larger election commitment by the B.C. Liberals to spend $650 million on the Trans-Canada Highway between Kamloops and the Alberta border. Under Stone’s leadership, the ministry recently came to an agreement on First Nations remains thought to be severalhundred years old that were in the path of the highway project several kilometres east of the Monte Creek interchange. The Shuswap Nation Tribal Council originally backed a demand the remains be untouched; however, the Neskonlith band agreed last year that the remains could be entombed deeper beneath the highway.

Liberals: Abandon austerity obsession CANADIAN PRESS

OTTAWA — Deputy Liberal Leader Ralph Goodale is urging the federal Conservatives to abandon what he calls “their obsession with austerity” in today’s (Feb. 11) budget. The former finance minister said it’s the wrong policy when households are carrying record levels of debt, the country is running a chronic trade deficit and businesses aren’t boosting their investments. Goodale said government should allot more money for infrastructure and access to post-secondary education, while eliminating tariffs on consumer goods and reducing the burden of higher employment-insurance payroll taxes. He said the Conservatives

should also stop spending millions of taxpayer dollars on advertising unless there’s some accountability on how that money is spent. Goodale said he doesn’t know whether the Tories should delay their self-imposed deadline of 2015 to balance the books because he doesn’t have access to all the financial information they do. But, he added, he is skeptical of the Conservative math because they’re planning to balance the books, in part, by simply not spending the money they’ve promised in the budget. “On one page of the budget plan, you announce big spending in things like infrastructure or national defence, for example,’’ he said. A few pages later, Goodale noted, the government said it

won’t be spending that money after all. “That’s a great hocus-pocus sleight of hand that really raises serious doubts about the government’s arithmetic.’’ Finance Minister Jim Flaherty insists he won’t balance the books on the backs of the provinces. According to Liberal MP John McCallum, that is not the case, He noted Ontario has already complained its equalization payments are being cut and Prime Minister Stephen Harper is trying to claw back money Ottawa gives the provinces for a contentious new federal jobs training scheme that’s yet to be created. “I do think he’s showing signs of riding roughshod over the provinces in his efforts to balance the federal books as quickly as possible,’’ McCallum said.

Cattle-tracking program gives ranchers an edge By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A mandatory cattletracking program in Canada gives ranchers a unique edge in marketing, a industry leader recently told a Kamloops conference. The B.C. Cattlemen’s Association and the B.C. Association of

Abattoirs recently hosted a workshop on cattle traceability and what it can offer beyond its stated goal of food safety. The Canadian Food and Inspection Agency instituted a radiofrequency tag program for all beef cattle in the wake of the bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) crisis a

decade ago. That system allows quick tracing of animals in cases of disease outbreak. But, Larry Thomas, national co-ordinator for the Beef InfoXchange System (BIXS) for Canadian Cattlemen, told KTW it also gives retailers and producers a window into production that

can be used for marketing or feedback on quality of the product. Radio-frequency identification tags are not mandatory in the United States and industry leaders asked the question: “Can we bring value to the fact we have to get tags in Canada?” Thomas said the industry believes the

tags give ranchers in Canada an advantage. For example, ranchers can retain ID numbers and determine how their animals are graded after they are sent to Alberta packing plants. “Today, a rancher sells the animal at an auction and that’s the last thing they have for that animal.”

On the other side, Thomas said, retailers will be able to use the tags to determine, for example, if beef is free of hormones or vaccines. They can advertise that fact. “It’s end-market intelligence.” While the radio-

frequency tags are mandatory, use of BIXS is not. Thomas said the Canadian Cattlemen’s Association is advising ranchers to use the system, which replaces a difficult-to-use earlier version. There is no fee to use the system.

McPhail

www.kamloopsthisweek.com

GULLIFORD, MARK

Gordon Thomas McPhail passed away peacefully in the the Royal Inland Hospital on February 4, 2014 at the age of 84.

Mark passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on February 3, 2014 at the age of 59 years. He was born in New Westminster, BC on August 2, 1954.

Tom was born in Belmont, Manitoba, on January 17, 1930. After farming in Manitoba and working in the forests of Northern Ontario, Tom worked his way across Canada at various jobs, including dairying in the B.C. Lower Mainland; building a retaining wall at Hell’s Gate, in the rugged Fraser Canyon; and putting up telegraph lines for CN Rail. In 1954, Tom started work for the BC Telephone Company in Kamloops, B.C. In 1958, Tom met Myrna in Merritt and the two were married in September, 1959. After a few years residing in Kamloops, Tom and Myrna moved to Merritt in 1962 where he continued to work with BC Tel and where he and Myrna owned and operated the Cottonwood Trailer Park in Lower Nicola until 2002. Tom and Myrna also ran the Cottonwood Store until the mid 1960s. Tom retired from BC Tel in 1985.

He was predeceased by his mother, Dorothy in 1973 and his father, Percy in 2004. Mark is survived by his loving wife of 34 years, Wilma Beddington. He will be lovingly remembered by his sons, Skye (Danielle) and Clayton; his granddaughter Kessa; twin sister Maureen Braun (Ralph); step-mother Joan Russil; step-brother Curtis (Shirley); step-sister Shaunda (Melvin); many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, godchildren and friends.

During his retirement, Tom and Myrna traveled extensively throughout North America and would often spend winter months in Arizona. Tom enjoyed many activities including curling and golf; he continued to golf even last year. Tom will be lovingly remembered for his kind, gentle nature, his dry wit and wonderful sense of humor, his horsemanship, his entertaining rhymes and songs, his unwavering generosity and helpfulness. Tom is survived by his wife, Myrna, daughter, Linda Murray, son, Lowell McPhail, brother, Bob McPhail, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Tom was a hardworking and devoted family man who will be greatly missed. At his request, rather than a service there will be a celebration of his life later this year. In lieu of flowers please donate the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC.

ELIZABETH AGNES LEE September 27, 1919 - January 28, 2014 Agnes Lee passed away peacefully in Kamloops, BC on January 28, 2014. She was 94 years old.

Grandma will be missed by grandchildren Diana and husband Sheldon, Angela and husband Mark, Steven and Andrew and by great grandchildren Corbin, Danica and Charlotte. Agnes was born in Ogema, Saskatchewan and grew up there. After nursing through the war years in Regina, Agnes and Gordon were married in Salmon Arm and moved to Kamloops. They resided in the area for over 68 years. Agnes was active in the community and formed many lifetime friendships. She commented often that she had lived a “wonderful life”. There will be a memorial celebration of her life on Saturday, February 22 at 3:30 pm at Schoening Funeral Services 513 Seymour Street, Kamloops, BC. Should family or friends desire, donations in Agnes’ name may be made to the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation at www.rihfoundation.ca .

The Ship

NOVEMBER 13 1929 — JANUARY 29 2014 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Jack Burns on January 29, 2014 at Overlander Extended Care Facility at the age of 84 years. Jack became ill with Brittle Diabetes, Parkinson’s, and Heart Disease in his 70’s and passed away from complications of Norwalk Virus with his family by his side. Jack is survived by his loving wife of 62 years, Ruth and his three children — Debra (Jay), Peace River Alberta, John (Marina), Nanaimo BC, and Lori, Sydney NSW Australia. Jack had seven dear grandchildren whom he tickled and teased and bounced on his foot: Erin (Bob), Shayne, Mykah (Heith), Amelia, Pearce, Taylor and Caitlin, as well as three darling great-grandchildren Lexie, Kashlee and Evan. Jack also leaves behind his brother Robert (Angie) nephews Norman, Shawn, and great niece Delany, his brother-in-law Ronald, cousin Peter (Jennifer) plus other extended family and numerous friends. He was predeceased by his sister Shirley in 2009. Born in 1929 in Abbotsford BC to Edward (Ted) and Harriet (Hetty) Burns, Jack was the second of three children. He was an industrious school boy and helped his Dad with his electrical store deliveries, had a paper route and also worked for the shoemaker and then in a men’s wear store after school. After graduating from Phillip Sheffield High School, he worked in Eaton’s Men’s Wear and also with the Fraser Valley Diking Board as an apprentice Surveyor before starting his 35 year career at BC Hydro in Abbotsford, eventually transferring to Hope, Chilliwack and Kamloops, where he was a “Land Rep” and retired at age 55. On December 15, 1951 he married Ruth Duveen Larson in Chilliwack BC. Jack’s passion and favorite hobby was building and about every three years in his spare time he would have the urge to build us a new house — needless to say we moved many times and were fortunate to always live in “The House That Jack Built”.

Kamloops 1965-73, Director of the Boys Club from 1971-73 and President of the Boys Club in 1974, joined the Royal Arch Masons of BC, Kamloops Chapter #18 in 1973 and in his capacity as a BC Hydro Rep presented many achievement awards to 4H Club Members. In his late teens he was a sparring partner for a wrestler. In those years he started to bowl, curl, jog and bike. After he retired he had other JOBS as he called them — such as the Lawn Bowling club, Remote Control Model Airplane Club, Kamloops Golf and Country Club and Cross Country Ski Club, where he enthusiastically helped to maintain and clear the trails. Jack was also involved in building the ski hut at Stake Lake. He belonged to the Kamloops Tennis Club and helped build an office and of course put the bubble up and down seasonally and weeded the courts with a crew of young players. He played partners tennis but his favorite sport was singles tennis where at age 67 he entered and won a bronze medal in the BC Senior’s Games. He also played pool and a mean game of crib with any and all who would challenge him. He taught most of the children in the family to play crib and tried, but only taught a few, to play tennis. He liked to hunt and fish but was generally accused of really enjoying sitting in the weeds and watching the animals and birds, so rarely came home with a catch. He loved to go camping at the lakes or beaches of BC or Washington State and was also fortunate to visit numerous countries in the world making friends and enjoying laughter with his jokes wherever he went. Jack was a loving husband and father and a true caring friend always ready to give you a hand. He was a decent, kind, honest, patient gentle man and an ardent storyteller with an infectious sense of humour. He had a ready smile and constantly teased us. He always had time to chat and had the ability to make conversation with anyone on any topic. A grateful thank you to Dr. Miranda du Preez for her care and compassion toward Jack and our family — you are the best!!. We also are so very appreciative to Teena, and All the wonderful staff at Overlander Extended Care Facility for their TLC. What a team! A special thank you to Shari, Tom and Sharon who shared Jack’s journey the past few years — you are a blessing. Cremation has taken place and a celebration of Jack’s life will be held at a later date in the spring. An announcement will follow.

He was a founding member of the Abbotsford Kinsman club, Boy Scout Leader “Aquino” in Hope as well as a Chamber of Commerce member.

I am standing upon the seashore. A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is on object of beauty & strength & I stand & watch her, until at length, she is only a speck of white cloud just wheret he seas & sky meet and mingle with each other. Then someone at my side exclaims, “There, she’s gone!” Gone where? Gone from my sight, that is all. She is just as large as she was when she left my side & just as able to bear her load of living freight to the place of her destination. Her diminished size is in me, not her. And just at the moment when someone at my side says she is gone, there are other eyes watching for her coming and other voices ready to take up the glad shout “There she comes!”. Author Unknown

Coldest Night walk to help city’s homeless By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

It might not be happening on the coldest night of the year, but The Coldest Night of the Year fundraiser is hoping to help people understand the issue of poverty across Canada. The Coldest Night of the Year is a national fundraiser, taking place on Feb. 22, 2014, in 63 cities from coast to coast. In Kamloops, the event includes five-kilometre and 10-kilometre

walks, with walkers teaming up to raise money and awareness to help combat poverty and homelessness. Stan Dueck, executive director of the New Life Mission, the local organizer, said the program is about making sure those who have the greatest need get those needs met. “Go watch some of the news programs,” Dueck said. “It’s been 20 below around here — or close — for the last couple weeks and

we still had people sleeping under bridges. “What we want people to see and recognize is we’re walking on a night when probably it’s going to be cool — in Kamloops, chances are it may not be ice cold, it may not even be below zero — but, the fact of the matter is, there are people that are living outside in these conditions. They’re sleeping outside in these conditions.” Dueck said the program is as much about

raising money as raising awareness. The issue of homelessness and poverty is more complicated than people not wanting to work, he said, noting there are also issues of addiction, mental illness and a lack of supports. Nationally, the goal of The Coldest Night of the Year is to raise $2.5 million. The New Life Mission is aiming to raise $50,000 in Kamloops. As of Friday, Feb. 7, Kamloops had

Kamloops has 26 teams consisting of about 80 walkers registered, with the target being 300 participants by the time the event rolls around. Captaining one of those teams is Mayor Peter Milobar. “For us, that’s just

raised $6,209, 12 per cent of its goal, with $688,637,000 having been raised nationwide, 27 per cent of the goal. Last year, the second time the New Life Mission participated in the event, it raised between $22,000 and $23,000 Dueck said.

a big deal,” Dueck said of the city’s support, adding he is hoping Milobar’s challenge to council to get involved will bear fruit. For more information and to get involved, go online to coldestnightoftheyear.org/location/kamloops.

Snowbirds flying north — only north CANADIAN PRESS

MOOSE JAW — Canada’s famed Snowbirds aerobatic flying team has been forced to cancel all shows in the United States because of budget cuts. Snowbirds spokes-

man Capt. Thomas Edelson said the number of flying hours were cut for the squadron based in Moose Jaw, so the four U.S. shows were cancelled. Edelson said the team enjoys going south of the border, but Canadian audiences

have to be the priority. Herb Gillen, a spokesman for the Oregon International Air Show, said organizers received a call from the Snowbirds about 10 days ago to cancel a September show. Gillen said remov-

ing the Snowbirds from the lineup is a fairly big blow for the Oregon show. He said organizers are regrouping and trying to figure out what the viability of the show is if it doesn’t have a jet-demonstration team.

From Sochi to the Cold War via that iconic, scary symbol

M

UCH ATTENTION AT the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi has been focused on the exorbitant cost, the threat of terrorist strikes from militant Islamists fighting for a religious state of their own in the region near Sochi and lessthan-stellar accommodations. However, as with Vancouver in 2010 and Beijing in 2008, the opening ceremony in Sochi was breathtaking. From Peter the Great; to Leo Tolstoy’s War and Peace; to Russia’s mind-boggling span of land mass set to a musical production; to the legendary Vladislav Tretiak lighting the Olympic torch, the three-hour production was impressive — glitches and all. However, there was an image in the Sochi opening ceremony that jumped out at me like no other — an image that elicits varying reactions specific to a generation. When a giant hammer and sickle entered Fisht Stadium to symbolize the Russian Revolution and the country’s seven-decade-plus era under communism, there appeared to be enhanced cheering from the crowd. On social-media networks like Twitter, especially among Americans watching the spectacle, there was much criticism, with many opining the giant sculptures were an ode to communism. I saw it differently. I saw the hammer and sickle as but one part of a ceremony that detailed the history of the world’s largest country. I did not see glorification in the display, which featured workers toiling alongside the two most dominant images of the Cold War. But, that hammer and sickle — man, did it get my heart beating a bit faster. I thought, as I watched it sail through the air, how vastly different my reaction is to those two tools than would be my kids’ or anyone else who grew up after

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS the 1980s. Coming of age in the 1970s and 1980s, there was Us and Them — and they were the mysterious, robot-like, ungodly Evil Empire. Nothing, absolutely nothing, embodied the Cold War as did the hammer and sickle. When I was a kid, the Stars and Stripes looked powerful, our Maple Leaf was comfortable, but the mighty Soviet Union’s hammer and sickle was simply frightening. Combine those two workers’ implements with that powerful Soviet national anthem and this Western kid was occasionally jolted awake by nightmares of a decided political bent. My generation knew all about 1972 (though we were too young to remember, if we watched at all). We knew all about the Cuban Missile Crisis before that and the strange scene of Nikita Khrushchev pounding his fist (or shoe) on the table at the United Nations before that. But, it wasn’t until the Soviets invaded Afghanistan, leading to the duelling boycotts of the 1980 Olympic Summer Games in Moscow and the 1984 Olympic Summer Games in Los Angeles — both of which coincided with the beginning of Ronald Reagan’s two terms — that my generation had its

Cold War moments. Add to those events the Eagle and the Bear fighting proxy warns in Nicaragua, El Salvador and Grenada and the simplistic Us vs. Them/Good vs. Evil became a bit more complex to teenaged minds. To me, Daniel Ortega was less a villain and more a hero; Archbishop Oscar Romero’s murder was an indictment of the CIA and U.S. policy in Central America; the invasion of Grenada seemed a bit bullyish. Still, still — that hammer and sickle remained an image of fear etched in my mind. To some extent, it continues to be so today, if not inspiring fear, then rocketing me back to the pre-Internet days of yore when shaping the world view of youth was so much easier than it is today. Back then, we had Walter Cronkite at dinnertime on KIRO, the Seattle CBS affiliate. We had Knowlton Nash on the CBC and Harvey Kirck on CTV. We had newspapers. And that’s about it. Today, skepticism abounds thanks to the Internet’s power to spread voices — sane and deluded; honest and corrupt — around the world in an instant. When I read about the Sochi Olympics, my mind still imagines the Russia of my youth, the Soviet Union of terrifying lore, the land of power and mystery. When today’s kids read about the Sochi Olympics, their minds are on the sport and, perhaps, on whatever else they know of the country — and I guarantee it is much more Pussy Riot and Ovechkin and precious little gulags and communism. When I see the hammer and sickle, I see an image that defines my youth; when kids see the hammer and sickle, what do they see? editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s not often residents of a city the size of Kamloops get a chance to watch their own aim for a medal on the biggest sporting stage in the world. In the next two weeks, however, Kamloopsians will get just that opportunity as speed skater Jessica Hewitt and alpine skier Elli Terwiel take to the ice and slopes in Sochi, Russia, as part of our respective national teams. Kamloops is Canada’s Tournament Capital, a monicker firmly rooted in this city’s sports heritage. What better representation of that slogan, that lifestyle, than the two young women whose hard work and untold sacrifice has vaulted them to the pinnacle of their competitive careers? As detailed in our sports pages in this edition (page A15), Hewitt and her Canadian speedskating teammates have started the Olympic Winter Games impressively. Hewitt finished second in her opening 500-metre heat and will skate in the quarter-finals on Thursday, Feb. 13, at 2 a.m. (set those alarm clocks as the race is on CBC). Five days after that race, on Tuesday, Feb. 18, Hewitt and her teammates will skate for gold in the always-exciting short-track 3,000-metre relay (again, set your alarm clocks for that 2:45 a.m. start on CBC). Terwiel will ski for glory on Friday, Feb. 21, with two runs broadcast on Sportsnet — at 4:45 a.m. and 8:15 a.m. Do yourself a favour and try to rise and watch these hometown heroes as they embody all that is right with youth and demonstrate to all Kamloops athletes that dreams never die — regardless of how distant they may seem.

Re: Story: How Rivers rose — and a brief history of publc-art protocol in Kamloops: “Now, if we could extend the ‘artistic’ approach to everything we do in this city, we would have a daily spectacle! “The ideas and thinking that goes through a person’s mind when contemplating an art piece, regardless of what it is, is the true value of what art is all about. It inspires. “Let’s extend ‘artful thinking to all public spaces in our city, not only static displays, but the living part as well — the plants!” — posted by Lyman Duff

Re: Story: Thrive Festival seeks $37,500 from city: “It’s hard to believe the city would even consider hosting a festival that charges $10 per ticket at a cost of $250 per ticket holder. “And then we have organizers thinking of cancelling if the city isn’t willing to fund it for a second time! “Meanwhile, it’s 20 below and there are dozens of homeless people throughout the city.” — posted by TheDude

Editor: Federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau has made a bold move in his release of Liberal senators from the party caucus, while members of the Conservative party are dismissing the significance. Trudeau makes the point that the Senate is broken and needs to be fixed and, given recent media reports, police enquiries and public sentiments, the Canadian public agrees. Also in agreement for Senate reform are members of both the Conservative and New Democratic parties. There is, however, no consensus, nor even a mature discussion, on how to affect any reforms. The Conservatives favour an elected Senate and the NDP would abolish it altogether. The Senate model, with its partisan wrangling over short-term power strug-

But, over time, with senators unfettered by the election cycle fears of Parliament, perhaps we can begin to see a relevant function in the form of independently applied wisdom from within the Red Chamber. Perhaps at some point we can even appreciate NDP views among Senate debates. In context of today’s political realities, Trudeau’s release of Liberal senators from the caucus is a practical, intelligent move that disrupts the current mechanics of appointment and allegiance. It demonstrates bold new thinking, savvy politics and intellectual weight. I appreciate the new thinking and the fact somebody actually stepped forward and did something. Peter Mutrie Kamloops

gles, has usurped the original intention of providing sober second thought as a counterbalance to parliamentary decisions. As an aside, it is worth noting there are no NDP senators to help balance upperchamber debates. The Conservatives are right when they state no immediate changes in Senate function are forthcoming. Trudeau’s disentanglement transcends the immediate and does not require the lengthy, angst-ridden, costly and complicated constitutional changes that would accompany abolishment proceedings or triple-E status as proposed by the other parties. Senators with Liberal hearts, as well as those with Conservative hearts, will still apply their world views to the debates of the day and short-term changes will be hard to notice.

COVER PAGE STORY ‘It fluctuates that little bit and, with the cost of airfares and even a night in a hotel, all it takes is an extra trip or two and suddenly the number can creep up a bit.’ — Mayor Peter Milobar

Total expenses below $50K XFrom A1

Milobar’s totals do not include the expenses for a visit to Kamloops’ sister city, Uji, Japan, with Coun. Donovan Cavers and other community members. Council’s airfare, which Milobar said was about $1,400 each, is paid for out of a special sister-city reserve fund. Council expenses totalled $38,833 for the year. That’s on the higher side when compared to 2012, when councillors spent $31,850, and 2011, when expenses totalled $25,999 (though the 2011 election meant those councillors had only 10 full months in which to travel). But, Milobar said, he doesn’t think this was an unusual year for council travel. “It fluctuates that little bit and, with the cost of airfares and even a night in a hotel, all it takes is an extra trip or two and suddenly the number can creep up a bit,” he said.

“Then there’s things like the Mayors’ caucus, which was just created over the last year and a bit, which adds another trip a year.” Milobar attributes the rise in council expenses to the number of meetings councillors attended because of their work on other boards. Coun. Marg Spina, who is president of the Southern Interior Local Government Association (SILGA), was the only other councillor to exceed the $5,000 limit, with $5,519 in expenses. Most of those were split between the UBCM and FCM conventions held in Vancouver, both of which cost more than $2,000 to attend. As head of SILGA, Spina attends several additional UBCM board meetings a year, as does Coun. Arjun Singh. However, because both she and Singh serve on the board, not on committees, those travel expenses are paid for by the UBCM instead of the city.

While many will spend Valentine’s Day — and perhaps the weekend that follows it — immersed in all things hearts-and-flowers, David Darwin will be focusing on another aspect of love: Marital relationships. Darwin, a local psychologist, is again offering a one-day workshop based on principles he learned during a training period at the Gottman Institute in Seattle, which works to help couples and mental-health or health-care providers confront all the things that make a marriage. Darwin said that, while communication is important, it’s equally as vital to be friends who can work their way through any conflict to create a better marital foundation. This can involve issues like avoid-

ing criticism, stonewalling or contempt, he said. The workshop involves “very structured, simple exercises,� Darwin said, as well as debriefings. “Some couples said we had covered more ground in that one day than they had in years,� Darwin said of the response after last year’s workshop. He is holding it at the Southwest Community Church, 700 Hugh Allan Dr. in Aberdeen, but emphasized there is no religious connection — it was just a convenient space that could accommodate the workshop. Registration is $345 per couple. For more information and to register, go online to perspectives-counselling.ca.

LOCAL NEWS

Pernitsky will add to her 25 years at school XFrom A1

It’s always been parent-participating, Pernitsky said. In addition to ensuring there was always someone else there to help with the kids, having parents involved created its own larger pre-school family. She started as a substitute teach-

er a quarter-century ago, going fulltime when then-teacher Joan Lyons left. Pernitsky has her own retirement plan, one that sees her ideally leaving in about five years. “I want to retire while I’m still a good etcher,” she said. She’s thrilled with the new school, which now has its own

fridge, stove, microwave, dishwasher and deep freeze. There are a lot of items that will be familiar, though. There’s an animal cage, this year providing a home to a chinchilla. There’s a dress-up area for kids’ imaginations to soar.

The kid-sized tables and chairs are still there and artwork adorns the walls. Her rocking chair is still there, a stack of books nearby for story time. Even the old cubbies kids used to keep their shoes and coats in are there — but they benefitted

from another Pernitsky walk. “I was walking by and one of the workmen asked me if I could use the old ice buckets from the rooms,” she said. They’re now filling each cubby, holding a variety of fun items for kids to play with — and from which to learn.

‘Because this had that social media and the peer pressure aspect to it, we were just concerned that it might counterbalance some of the things we know they make good decisions about normally.’ — Chistine Adam, Dean of students, Thompson Rivers University

Neknomination is being blamed for two deaths in Ireland last week and has spread across the globe rapidly. Adam said her office is not aware of any injuries to TRU students playing the game. Of particular concern with Neknomination is the bullying or peer-pressure aspect, with individuals singled out for the challenges. Adam said the university is monitoring social media to ensure the game isn’t taking place on campus and is educating its students

and residence staff members about the dangers of playing. Adam added recent surveys conducted on student health, including drinking behaviours, leads her office to believe TRU students already take steps to reduce risk and drink responsibly. The nature of the game, however, is what has TRU officials concerned. “Because this had that social media and the peer pressure aspect to it, we were just concerned that it might counterbalance some of the things we know they make good decisions about normally,” Adam said.

Hewitt advances in two Olympic events Canadian short-track speed skater Jessica Hewitt had two strong performances at the Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia, on Monday, Feb. 10. The Kamloops product finished second in her heat in the ladies’ 500-metre event, posting a time of 43.447 seconds. Kexin Fan of China was first with a time of 43.356. “I felt pretty nervous beforehand but, once I got on the ice, I took it all in for a second and I felt really calm,” Hewitt told KTW from Sochi. “My race went well I had a good start and I finished with the secondfastest time, I’m happy and I’m confident. “We were expected to be in the final for the relay, so it’s a good result and I can’t wait for the final. “Things here are crazy with a lot of excitement, so I’m trying to relax as much as I can. Hewitt will race in the quarterfinal round on Thursday, Feb. 13. The races begin at 2 a.m.

Kamloopsians should also think about getting up early on Feb. 18, when Hewitt and the Canadian women’s team compete for gold in the 3,000-m relay final. They are scheduled to race at 2:54 a.m. Hewitt, along with teammates Valerie Maltais, Marianne St. Gelais and Marie-Eve Drolet, placed second in their heat in the semifinal round on Monday. It appears the 27-year-old is peaking at the right time.

Cycling accident Hewitt had an unfortunate runin with metal spikes in Sochi on Saturday, Feb. 8. “I was biking last night back from the rink to go to the dining room and I cut across a pathway and I didn’t see some big metal spikes sticking out of the grass,” she told the media. “So I hit that and fell face-first.” The cuts on her face were visible at training on Sunday.

Cotter coming home for Brier; Yamada, DeCap fall short Jim Cotter will be heading to his home town of Kamloops as the reigning B.C. champion for the 2014 Tim Hortons Brier. Cotter’s team, with Olympic champion John Morris calling the shots and Kelowna residents Tyrel Griffith and Rick Sawatsky rounding out the team, were crowned B.C. champions after a decisive victory over Team Montgomery on Sunday, Feb. 9. “Going to a Brier in my hometown is going to be a phenomenal feeling. I still have a lot of friends and family there and I am really looking forward to it,” Cotter said. The Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship final ended 12-2 after eight ends. Morris and Cotter were in control from the start, opening with three points. It

was then up to Jason Montgomery and his team of Jody Epp, throwing fourth rocks, Miles Craig and Will Duggan to catch up. But, it was not to be. The team from Victoria was never able to take control of the game and its fate was sealed in the seventh end, when Team Morris secured a four-ender, putting the score at 10-2. The game followed a thrilling semifinal tilt on Saturday that saw Montgomery’s rink edge 2009 B.C. champion Brent Pierce on the last rock of the 10th end. This will be the fourth trip to the Brier for Cotter, who grew up in Kamloops but now lives in Vernon. It will also be the fourth trip to the Brier for Sawatsky and the second trip to the Brier for Griffith.

Skip Morris, who joined the rink at the start of the season, is no stranger to the Brier, with six purple hearts to his name, but this is the first time Morris will represent B.C. Kamloops rinks skipped by Scott DeCap and Brent Yamada fell short at the provincial championship. Yamada’s was the closest of the two Kamloops Curling Club rinks, winning four straight games after losing its first to New Westminster’s Pierce rink. A rematch against Pierce in the B-event final ended in a 6-4 loss for Yamada and the team was eliminated from contention with a 10-4 loss to Tom Buchy’s Kimberley rink. DeCap led his rink to victories in its first two games, before losing three

straight and falling out of contention.

Brier field set Curling fans in Kamloops now know who will compete for the national title next month at Interior Savings Centre. The field: John Morris (British Columbia), Brad Gushue (NewfoundlandLabrador), Jeff Stoughton (Manitoba), Steve Laycock (Saskatchewan), Glenn Howard (Ontario), Jamie Murphy (Nova Scotia), Eddie MacKenzie (Prince Edward Island), James Grattan (New Brunswick), Jeff Currie (Northern Ontario), Jamie Koe (Northwest Territories/Yukon), Kevin Koe (Alberta) and Jean-Michel Menard (Quebec). The Brier runs from March 1 to March 9 at ISC.

New wrinkles in this year’s Kamloops Marathon races

Karen Weins in action at the inaugural Kamloops Marathon in 2012. KTW file photo

The Kamloops Marathon will see a handful of changes in 2014, which organizers are hoping will help registration swell to more than 400 racers. Each of the marathon’s races will be held on the same day — July 27, 2014 — rather than spanning two days, with staggered start times allowing for all runners to finish at similar times. The 10-kilometre race will be shortened

to an eight-kilometre event, while the fivekilometre route will be downgraded to a threekilometre walk/run for families. The half-marathon will be included in the Interior Running Association’s Canadian Tire Road Race Series in 2014. Organizers have also added a marathon relay — with four runners racing about 10 kilometres each — which is expected to bring more people

on board. The marathon distance will again be a qualifier for the Boston Marathon in 2015. This will be the third annual Kamloops Marathon and, for the third year, a portion of the race’s entry fees will go toward bursaries for athletes at Thompson Rivers University. All participants will receive a shirt and a medal and will be able to partake in a pancake breakfast.

Tricario comes up big for WolfPack volleyball squad It was Jacob Tricarico’s tribute night on Friday, Feb. 7, inside the TRU gym, an evening intended to honour the fifth-year middle from Huntington Beach, Calif. Tricarico used the spotlight to help sew up the WolfPack’s playoff plans, picking up the team’s final kill in a 3-1 victory against the Manitoba Bisons, clinching TRU’s firstever home playoff series in men’s volleyball. With the victory, TRU improves to 13-9 on the season, while Manitoba is 10-12. “He had a great match,” WolfPack head coach Pat Hennelly said of Tricarico. “I love it when a guy — on his night — comes through.” The WolfPack were playing without right side hitter Brad Gunter, who remains out of the lineup with an ankle injury. In Gunter’s absence, Casey Knight led the WolfPack with 19 kills in 44 opportunities. Colin Carson had 47 assists, while Stuart Richey had a teamhigh 11 digs. Tricarico totalled 13 kills on the night. The WolfPack fell 3-1 to the Bisons on Saturday, Feb. 8. TRU will host the Saskatchewan Huskies (11-11) in the first round of the playoffs. Match 1 of the best-of-three series will be played at the Tournament Capital Centre on Thursday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m., with Match 2 set for Friday, Feb. 14., inside the TRU gym.

Simon Fraser improves to 16-2, while the WolfPack falls to 9-10. “I think the problems we have gone through over the last few weeks finally caught up to us,” WolfPack head coach Don Schulz said. “We weren’t moving our feet or doing anything that we taught the players. Against a team like SFU, you can’t let that happen.” Anthony Delong and Duncan Schulz scored the goals, while Chris Solecki and Mark Menicucci split time in goal. TRU is tied for third with the Trinity Western Spartans. The B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League’s top four teams receive playoff berths.

Don’t fret about this quartet By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Strings brought Trent Freeman and the rest of The Fretless band together. “Through the fiddle, we’ve known each other a long time,” Freeman said of the group that includes Ivonne Hernandez, Karrnnel Sawitsky and Eric Wright. While one might expect a quartet that plays violin, viola and cello to lean more to Mozart, The Fretless is all about folk music, Freeman said. Its beginnings came from the simple joy of jamming together, Freeman said, although the idea of forming a quartet was always there somewhere. “We have similar traditional backgrounds” in music, he said, “but each of us comes a it from a different place.” Hernandez, who plays violin and viola and step-dances, has performed with Alan Jackson, Steve Winwood, Natalie MacMaster, Ben Heppner and film composer Howard Shore. She takes folk music and turns it upside down. Sawitsky, who plays violin and viola, draws his influences

from almost anywhere music is played, including classical, country, rock, blues, jazz, bluegrass, Celtic, Ukrainian, French-Canadian, Metis, Irish and Scottish. Cellist Wright’s musical roots are based in traditional Irish and folk music and Freeman — whose parents wanted him to learn piano — said he’s willing to follow in any musical journey the band wants to take. The musical dispute in the Freeman house ended when fiveyear-old Trent opted for violin “because it looked like a guitar.”

The group is popular with festivals and does a fair amount of touring. “We go over big in the Maritimes,” Freeman said. Tonight (Tuesday, Feb. 11), the four are at The Commodore Grand Cafe and Lounge, a venue Freeman is familiar with and finds a cool place to perform. With a photographer accompanying the group on this tour, he’s particularly delighted to be at the Commodore because the setting itself will likely lead to some “amazing candid shots.”

Growing up in Mexico City, he was surrounded by the music of the country but preferred to listen to pop and rock. “Every penny and all my allowance went into buying 45s and I listened to the radio,” he said. “And, as a teen, I really got into rock music.” (For those of you unfamiliar with 45s, they were seven-inch vinyl records that rotated 45 times per minute — hence the name — and invariably contained one song

Civic boasts big changes for 2014 By Lorne Drury METROLAND MEDIA wheelstalk.com

W

HEN YOU have a car that has topped the sales charts for 16 straight years, you simply leave it alone. Right? Wrong — at least when you’re talking about Honda and its Civic compact. After a major redesign in 2012 with the introduction of the ninth-generation model and a refresh of the sedan for 2013, Honda has concentrated much of its efforts for 2014 on the two-door coupe. The Civic Coupe gets a significant redesign on the front and rear flanks, while the sedan boasts a snappy new interior look. Also new for 2014 is a continuous variable transmission (CVT) that promises improved fuel economy and performance without much of the dreaded “whine” that most CVTs exhibit. It replaces an outdated five-speed automatic transmission. So how has Honda been able to keep the Civic atop the sales heap in Canada for all these years? According to Dave Gardner, vice president of sales and marketing for Honda Canada, it’s because the Civic is such a well-rounded car with variants that appeal

The Civic gets a new taillight treatment along with a restyled rear bumper. It also comes with a 1.8-litre SOHC four-cylinder engine making 143 hp and 129 lb/ft of torque.

to all walks of life. “Our strategy is to continue as the benchmark,” Gardner said, as Honda Canada introduced the new Civic model to Canadian auto journalists here in the land of Disney and sunshine. “We’re going to give it our best shot to keep the Civic the best-selling car for 17 straight years.” Honda Canada says the Civic is rated at or near the top for each of the five key purchase reasons for compact car buyers — value for the money, dynamics, safety, premium exterior and technology. For 2014, the Civic Coupe gets a sportier look with a bold new grille, headlights and taillights along with a sculptured hood, front fenders, side mirrors and rear bumper. Step up to the performance-oriented Si Coupe (the Si is also

available on the sedan as well) and you get a bolder, more aggressive look again with an exclusive grille design to set it apart from the regular Civic Coupe. There is also a floating spoiler on the rear deck lid to emphasize the high performance of the vehicle. New 18-inch aluminum alloy wheels add to the sportiness. Inside the cabin, the 2014 Civic is also upgraded with new upholstery fabric, a seven-inch display screen for audio and navigation functions and a snappy new red colour combination for the Si. All this follows a significant interior refresh in 2013 to combat criticism that quality and features within the cabin were lagging behind the competition. The familiar dualtiered dashboard returns with displays top and bottom.

It gives the interior a unique look, but the top tier readouts are sometimes difficult to rear in bright lighting conditions. Otherwise, everything is top notch with new high-tech features like the available seveninch capacitive touch screen that will handle HondaLink, an application-based platform that allows integration of your car and your smartphone, providing access to online and cloud-based content and information. LaneWatch is Honda’s blind-spot monitor that goes one step further than we’ve seen before. It uses a camera, mounted under the passenger-side mirror, which can be activated by turning on the right turn signal or tapping the end of the signal stock. The driver sees what the camera picks up on

the big display screen atop the centre stack, meaning less time with your eyes off the road. The Civic Sedan, which starts at $15,690, comes in four trim levels — DX, LX, EX and Touring. A five-speed manual transmission is standard on all but the Touring model, which gets the CVT. The CVT is a $1,300 option on LX and EX. For the Civic Coupe, trims include LX, EX and EX-L Navi, which offers only the CVT. The others get the 5-speed manual as standard. The Coupe EX and EX-L get steering wheel mounted paddle shifters. The engines are unchanged, but power and fuel efficiency are improved over last year.

Chev unveils pricing for 2014 Camaro

Maserati for your ears

true sound performance that is synonymous with all Bowers & Wilkins audio products, combined with design elements and materials drawn from the rich Italian heritage of Maserati. The P5 Maserati Edition is crafted from fine-grain natural leather, in Maserati’s distinctive deep blue, for a luxuriously comfortable fit. P5 Maserati Edition also features the iconic Maserati Trident emblem on both the headband and the exclusive quilted leather travel pouch. The Trident was designed by Mario Maserati, based on the statue of Neptune in the fountain of Bologna’s Piazza Maggiore. The P5 Maserati Edition is available online at maseratistore.com.

valve dampers, which allow four-way damping control, enabling engineers to precisely tune both bump and rebound settings for high-speed and lowspeed wheel motions. The wider tuning range also allows dramatically greater damper stiffness without a significant change in ride quality. Additional

chassis changes include stiffer spring and bushing rates for improved cornering response. Lightweight, 19-inch forged aluminum wheels and Pirelli PZero Trofeo R tires reduce unsprung weight by 22.5 kg (49.6 pounds) per car compared to the 20-inch wheels standard on Camaro SS and ZL1.

Civic’s performance sportier in ‘14 XFrom B6

The Civic Sedan and Coupe feature a 1.8litre twin-stage VTEC engine, with power up three horses to 143 and torque up one to 129 lb/ft. Thanks to the new CVT transmission, fuel efficiency improves to 6.9/5.1/6.1L/100 km city/highway/combined. Unfortunately, the performance-oriented Si wasn’t yet available for testing, but it has an additional four horses to 205, and torque jumps from 170 to 174 lb/ft thanks to refinements in the exhaust system. Suspensions on both the regular Civic Coupe and Si model have been tuned to improve handling and the steering has been tweaked to provide a more linear feel. All this sounds great in theory, but it’s how it all comes together that really counts. Here, the Civic shines with perfor-

mance and responsiveness that is sportier than ever before. This is a car that has always handled well, but the upgrades for

2014 move it up among the class leaders in all areas. The ride is generally smooth and composed with little road noise making it into the cabin except on sub-par pavement. There’s enough power in the Civic for everyday driving situations, but keep in mind the regular coupe and

sedan are tuned for fuel efficiency, not performance. For that, move up to the Si version and the 200+ horses it provides. And, if even greater fuel efficiency is what you want, the Civic Hybrid will be on sale in March. For the Si Coupe and Sedan, you’ll have to wait until March 12 and

Bowers & Wilkins has announced the P5 Maserati Edition Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones. These join the Bowers & Wilkins 805 Maserati Edition loudspeaker and Bowers & Wilkins uniquely tuned in-car audio systems for the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte. The highly regarded Bowers & Wilkins P5 Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones are now available in a special Maserati Edition, matching the unbeatable audio performance of Bowers & Wilkins with the understated elegance of Maserati. Paying homage to the design heritage of both brands, the P5 Maserati Edition delivers an immersive mobile listening experience and the

the 7.0-litre LS7 engine, with dry-sump oiling, rated at a SAE-certified 505 hp and 481 lb/ft of torque. The engine will be built by hand at the new Performance Build Center within GM’s Bowling Green assembly plant. A close-ratio sixspeed manual transmission is the only transmission offered and power is distributed to the rear wheels via a Torsen limited-slip differential featuring a helical gear set, rather than traditional clutch packs, for optimal traction. The differential works in unison with Chevrolet’s proprietary Performance Traction Management system, allowing drivers to adjust the level of throttle and braking intervention to match their capability and driving environment. The Camaro Z/28 is also one of the first production cars fitted with race-proven, spool-

TOP ACHIEVER FOR THE MONTH OF JANUARY

Extending the collaboration between two legendary brands, Bowers & Wilkins has announced the P5 Maserati Edition Mobile Hi-Fi Headphones.

Chevrolet has announced the 2014 Camaro Z/28 will go on sale this spring in Canada with a suggested retail price of $77,400, plus a $1,600 destination charge. The new Z/28 is offered in five exterior colors – Red Hot, Black, Silver Ice Metallic, Ashen Grey Metallic and Summit White. The Z/28’s unique exterior is designed like a racecar to produce downforce that presses the tires against the track for greater grip – up to 1.08 g in cornering acceleration – and faster lap times. The aerodynamically optimized design helped the Camaro Z/28 log a lap on Germany’s legendary Nurburgring road course that was four seconds faster than the Camaro ZL1’s and beat published times for the Porsche 911 Carrera S and the Lamborghini Murcielago LP640.
