OR YEARS, IT SAT in a crawlspace in a house in Brocklehurst, literally collecting dust. As soon as the latches on the old green suitcase were undone, it overflowed with curled-up memories — photos of oldtime Kamloops, Jerusalem, Egypt and Denmark, among others. The suitcase offered few clues, other than a name — Andy Paulsen, who appears to have had soft spots for cars, women and gardening — and approximate dates. Who was Andy? And why was this suitcase not with his family? KTW helped track down Andy’s relatives and was there for the much-delayed family reunion of sorts.

City, firefighters agree on contract By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

IN BE T KA ST HE M VI LO EW O PS !

After more than three years without a contract, Kamloops firefighters have inked a new deal with the city. The previous contract expired in December 2010. Under the new deal, the 112 members of International Association of Firefighters Local 913 get a 1.25 per cent pay increase effective Jan. 1, 2011, a 1.25 per cent pay increase effective July 1, 2011 and a 0.5 per cent pay increase effective Jan. 1, 2013. In addition, wage increases for 2012, 2013, and 2014 will be the average of the percentage increase agreed to by the majority of 15 Lower Mainland municipality IAFF contracts. Firefighters and the city were headed to arbitration next month, but union president Kris Krutop said the union decided to sit down with new Kamloops Fire Rescue Chief Dale McLean, which turned into two days of discussion with the department’s upper management and the city. Eventually, a new deal was reached, one that will expire at the end of 2014. “It wasn’t really that complicated or anything. It was just a matter of throwing some ideas out there,” Krutop told KTW. “I think what kind of bogged us down there before was that we basically had our position and they had their position and we weren’t really analyzing the business.” This time around, he said, both sides looked for practices that could be changed to make KFR more efficient and less costly to run, which in turn would offset some of the firefighters’ wage demands.

Firefighters had asked for parity with other operations around the province, a standard practice for the union, which Krutop said this deal achieves. The average Kamloops firefighter will now make just over $80,000 a year. Among the changes are an increase in the number of “flex firefighters” on staff to eight from four. Those firefighters move around between halls to cover vacations, sick leave and other staffing gaps. Another change will require firefighters to take banked leave in full shifts, instead of allowing for partial shifts, which McLean said will cut down on overtime payments and scheduling difficulties. “We really fully anticipate with some of these changes, and there’s a couple others, we will be way more fiscally responsible for those costs and that will help us to meet our budget,” McLean said. Krutop said he credits McLean, city director of corporate services and community safety David Duckworth and city CAO David Trawin with being willing to take a new approach to making a deal. “They honestly looked at everything with an open mind and, really, I think the public will be better served,” he said. “It’s going to put more boots on the ground — and that’s what people pay for.” While the two sides will have to negotiate another new contract at the end of 2014, McLean said management and the union are already having discussions that will help shape the next round of bargaining. “This is something we’re doing on a daily basis, so when we do sit down for formal negotiations, it won’t be a huge stretch to go where we need to go,” he said.

Domtar stench was rancid — but harmless By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

It was not dangerous, but the smelly gas released from the Domtar pulp mill on Wednesday night (March 26) was “very obnoxious” a Ministry of Environment spokesman told KTW. Kamloops Fire Rescue (KFR) got a bevy of calls about the gas, which offended noses in neighbourhoods across the city. Assistant Chief Les Noel said the callers generally assumed they were smelling natural gas. Domtar spokeswoman Bonny Skene said the company was in the process of starting up

the mill after an annual two-and-a-half-day maintenance shutdown when the incinerator that usually burns the mill’s most odorous compounds “tripped out.” The backup incineration system was also not online and the mill released high-concentrated, non-condensible gases to the air from about 8:25 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. Ralph Adams, an air quality meteorologist for the Ministry of Environment, said the gases were carried straight through town by a steady westerly wind, leading to complaints from across the city. Because the gases contain sulphurous chemicals related to

the mercaptan added to natural gas to give it a distinctive smell, it’s easy to mistake one for the other, as Adams did himself. Similar chemicals are found in sewage fumes. While the ministry monitors for the gas — and saw a slight uptick on its Kamloops equipment on Wednesday night — Adams said there’s no cause for alarm. “This kind of gas is very obnoxious, it’s very offensive to many people, but it does not carry a health risk,” he said. “It’s not an indication that something dangerous is in the air.” However, the minis-

try does try to prevent this kind of venting from happening often and Domtar is required to notify the province if it lasts for more than 30 minutes. Skene said the company also notified other authorities once venting began and is now conducting an internal investigation into what caused the incinerator to go offline. “We apologize to the community members for the nuisance of the odour causing,” she said. Until the investigation is completed, which will take approximately two weeks, Skene said it’s too early to determine whether the incident was the

result of mechanical or human error. Noel said when KFR gets a influx of smell-related calls, it first talks to Terasen gas and sends firefighters

to investigate the site of the complaint. But, if no gas is detected, the mill is usually the second choice of culprit. “The dispatch-

CHANGES COMING GIFTS TO CHILDREN

On March 31, 2014, British Columbia will enact new legislation that governs how a person’s Will is to be drafted and interpreted. One significant change is that gifts made to children during the will-maker’s lifetime are no longer considered to be an advance of that child’s inheritance. Take the following example of how the new law will be applied. Frank leaves a will dividing his estate equally between his two children. Frank later helps one child, Lucky, with the down payment on a home but passes away before helping the second child. The gift to Lucky is not considered and Frank’s estate would be distributed equally between his two children. Lucky has “double-dipped”. This result may be unfair and not what Frank had intended, causing family strife. To avoid this, Frank should have drafted his will to avoid this outcome. A qualified lawyer who understands the new legislation can help your estate avoid this scenario.

Pair arrested in connection with thefts at Talasa Two people will likely face theft charges after a brief crime spree in two Sun Rivers parkades last week. Kamloops Rural RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said the break-ins took place on Saturday, March 22, between 4 a.m. and 5 a.m., when crooks broke into the underground parking

garages at two Talasa condominium buildings. Aird said the thieves broke into multiple vehicles and storage units in the garages, making off with stereos,

tools, credit cards, IDs, garage-door openers and insurance. On Monday, March 24, police pulled over a vehicle heading eastbound on the

Trans-Canada just west of Kamloops. Aird described the occupants as a couple who had recently moved to Kamloops from Vancouver.

Interior now in Zone 2 of a revamped ALR By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Interior will be designated as part of a new Zone 2 within the Agricultural Land Reserve, where the commission will be given what the B.C. Liberal government calls “more flexibility” to consider development applications. The Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Vancouver Island are designated as Zone 1 and will be left unchanged. The B.C. Liberal government announced changes on Thursday, March 27, to the 41-year-old Agricultural Land Reserve. “We wanted to draw a separation between the critical area — where 85 per cent of revenues are produced — and the balance of the province, where we have regional considerations and may want more flexibility,” acting Agriculture Minister Steve Thomson told reporters in a

conference call. But, Thomson added, it won’t be open season on the cherished ALR in Zone 2, comprised of the Interior, North and Kootenay regions. The ultimate decision remains with the commission and new regional panels, he said. It is housing and development interests that inevitably come into conflict with the ALR in the Thompson and Nicola regions, with developers wanting exclusions. However, Thomson said that’s not the intent of the changes. “We’re not compromising the principles of the commission . . . I’d not say that’s [housing] consistent with the core principles of the commission.” Delta-South independent MLA Vicki Huntington called the Interior zone change “deceitful and a betrayal of the public trust” and accused the government of removing its obligation to con-

sult with the Agriculture Land Commission chair on new panel appointments. NDP agriculture critic Nicolas Simons accused Bill Bennett, the cabinet minister in charge of the government’s core review of programs, of keeping the changes secret until after last year’s election. “The fundamental principle is that the reserve was set up for the entire province, not for zones here and zones there,” Simons said. Kevin Boon, general manager of Kamloops-based B.C. Cattlemen’s Association, said the group supports changes, but remains wary. Much of the details are yet to come with formulation of new regulations and appointment of regional panels. “There has to be flexibility, but not at the expense of agriculture,” Boon said. “We’ve lived with it [ALR] for 40 years. Agriculture and food

security has to be the primary focus.” Boon also said there is a concern that Zone 2 will become synonymous with an open season in the mind of developers. “If we separate in zones and put in flexibility in Zone 2 does that mean it’s going to be perceived it’s easier?” The B.C. Liberal government’s line so far is flexibility might mean allowing a processing plant on ALR property that’s not primarily for that producer. But, Thistle Farm owner Dieter Dudy said, that change may allow a corporation to pay a farmer to allow production on his land, with produce from far outside the local region. Dudy said it will be critical to have people with agricultural backgrounds on the new regional panels, an idea the Liberals instituted and later withdrew under former premier Gordon Campbell. “Isn’t it funny they said it was

going to be hands-off the ALR before the election?” Dudy noted. Boon said the government has promised broad consultation in coming up with the new regulations. He said the government’s interest in promoting LNG exports from Northern B.C. — home to 50 per cent of the ALR — is doubtless behind many of the changes. “It has to be evaluated with the needs of agriculture in mind, not for the convenience of those using it.” Bennett said the only change to the Interior zones is the addition of “social and economic” factors in considering permitted uses. He gave the example from his Kootenay constituency of a market-garden operator who was refused permission to build a second home on an unproductive part of the property so the next generation could take over the business. — with files from Black Press

WHAT MAKES A BOOK APPROPRIATE By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Denise Harper welcomes an application from a dad to reconsider a book being read in his 15-year-old son’s Grade 10 class. The chairwoman of the Kamloops-Thompson board of education said she spoke with parent Dean Audet about the concerns he has with The Perks of Being a Wallflower. Audet took his issues to the media this week, providing copies of his application for reconsideration of the material that is part of his son’s curriculum at South Kamloops secondary. In it, Audet has gone page by page, itemizing the parts he finds offensive. He has read the book and watched the movie made from the journal-based coming-of-age novel by Stephen Chbosky. His application notes he sees nothing good about the book, believing the message “is clearly promoting the fact that all of the swearing and immoral behaviour and pornography should be commonplace and acceptable.� Audet, who has four children — ages 15, 12, 10 and six — told KTW he does not believe the material in the book is appropriate for kids his son’s age. While noting his son has been given a different book from which to study, Audet noted his son will be focusing on that book while classmates around him continue to read and discuss The Perks of Being a Wallflower, while also watching the movie created from the book. The book was approved for use for Grade 9 and up, said Sherry Kallergis, operations manager with the education resource acquisition consortium (ERAC), a provincial body representing all but one school district and charged with evaluating curriculum material, making the information available to districts and teachers and assisting with group purchases to keep

costs to districts down. Kallergis said the evaluation — done by teachers appointed by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation — indicated the book would be a source for “rich discussion� on safety, gender issues, journalling and homosexuality, among others. The book is written in journal format — much like a diary — by a teenaged male to an anonymous friend and includes various issues he faces as he starts at a new school. He’s not particularly outgoing, not the athlete his brother is, nor as socially active as his sister, but he is befriended by others and confronts various situations many students deal with today. Those include pre-marital sex, drugs, threats, physical violence, feelings of inadequacy, smoking, lying, abortion and mental health. Kamloops-Thompson school district assistant superintendent Karl deBruijn said he was not aware of the book until he spoke with Audet. DeBruijn then read some book reviews. “I can see how it could be controversial,� he said. The Perks of Being a Wallflower was banned by a school board in Illinois earlier this year after it had been included in the Grade 8 literacy curriculum. It is on the list of the Top 10 most-challenged books put together by the American Library Association — a list that includes Brave New World, The Grapes of Wrath, Tropic of Cancer, Slaughterhouse-Five, The Satanic Verses, Things Fall Apart, American Psycho, The Metamorphosis and Lolita. It is available at the Kamloops Library. Marc Saunders, director of libraries for the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, said the library “must rely on our patrons to make choices that are right for themselves and for parents to monitor the child’s choices of

reading and viewing. “The selection of this book for the library’s collection is not an endorsement of the values or ideas it portrays. Rather, the library serves as a window to the world with a mandate to serve a wellinformed population.� Kallergis said when books are evaluated, a variety of criteria are considered, including gradeappropriateness, the subject matter, instructional design, whether it meets the curriculum requirements and a key factor of social considerations. Teachers can access the evaluation “to ensure it is appropriate for their use,� Kallergis said. “The question is, ‘Is there value to this book?’� She said the evaluation on the ERAC website, information teachers and districts can access in researching material, showed the book was seen as “a perfect opportunity. Discussion is limitless. The evaluators also said it is noted for literary merit and is a contemporary novel.� Kallergis said it was also deemed to be valuable in helping students develop a broad understanding of their contemporary issues and was appropriate for the cognitive ability of students in Grade 9. DeBruijn said the review, which will be done by school-district library co-ordinator Andrea Wallin, will give the board another opportunity to consider the content. Neither he nor Harper can remember a book being removed from the curriculum during their years of involvement with education in Kamloops. However, deBruijn noted, the idea of acceptability has changed in literature. “There are books we wouldn’t use today that we used before,� he said. “Huckleberry Finn is one of them. I read it in school, but there is language in there that wouldn’t be considered acceptable today.�

Multi-partisan approaches have proven most effective

I

WROTE THIS COLUMN after a delightful evening spent at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce 2014 annual general meeting. At the meeting, Mayor Peter Milobar gave a speech talking about the virtues of working together. This current council, the mayor said, is the most diverse he has served with in his 12 years on council. Yet, he stated, we work well as a team and work hard to collaborate to get things done for the community. I feel the same and I am extremely proud of this council for agreeing — and for disagreeing. I am sometimes criticized for advocating for a multi-partisan approach to government and for trying to reach for the middle (which I take to mean trying to find common ground). This, I feel, is by far the most effective way to operate. I know it makes for great headlines when opposing camps go at each other vociferously, trying to beat each other down, but I think the best policy comes when people with different views respectfully sit down in dialogue, engage in give and take and try to come up with solutions that best meet the needs and aspirations of the community as a whole. The most political people in our society spend far too much time demonizing those with different views. Kamloops is a diverse community that deserves diverse representation. I think it’s critical we create space

ARJUN SINGH View From

CITY HALL for dialogue and not for demonization. One week, not so long ago, I went to see federal NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair speak on a Tuesday and, on the Friday, I went to a B.C. Liberal dinner. I do wonder why this confuses people. I’m happy I am as welcome and feel as comfortable at a chamber meeting as I am at a roundtable addressing poverty or at an art-gallery reception or on a Sunday morning Run Club training session — or in myriad other places. This is a large part of what makes Kamloops magical. A multi-partisan approach does not mean one is silent on important issues or that hard decisions are not made. For example, I take as many chances as I can get to talk about the importance of reducing our greenhouse-gas emissions and of the possibilities of green economy. I have also been quite active in advocating controlling city spending. Hard decisions are indeed difficult

for me. I like to be liked and don’t naturally embrace conflict. I easily empathize with different points of view. Hard decisions, though, are unavoidable. They are a regular and important responsibility of council. Also, our rules state a council member cannot abstain from voting in a city-council meeting. So, I take a deep breath, rip the metaphorical Band-Aid off and raise my hand one way or the other. I’ve done so for nearly six years. Many of my council colleagues have done it for longer and we are all quite used to it as we finish our last term of this council. So, there ways to work together, to take a multi-partisan approach, talk about big and important issues, take tough decisions and be very effective in community work. I don’t say that it always works perfectly. I am so proud and pleased this has, in the main, been a collective aspiration of this city council. I’d say we are heirs and the current keepers of a strong collaborative streak that has run through this community for a very long time. I hope we will help promote these practices to those who come in the future. Our corporate mission is “making Kamloops shine.” Arjun Singh is a Kamloops councillor. Each month, KTW will feature a column from a member of council. Singh can be reached by email at asingh@kamloops.ca.

It’s not just about Nigerian inheritance schemes or people stealing credit cards or financial information. Questionable activities touch each and every taxpayer whose hardearned dollars are siphoned by politicians for unjustified “expenses.” If we have learned anything from last year’s Senate expense scandals, and the recent revelations concerning former Alberta premier Alison Redford’s travel expenses, it’s that this is a problem that crosses all party lines and involves all political stripes. A recent example is publication of details of the vacation expenses billed by NDP MLA Jenny Kwan to the Portland Hotel Society, a not-for-profit organization already under fire for its expenses record. Kwan’s subsequent repayment of the sum was a reason for rejoicing on the right. That jubilation has been tempered somewhat by the revelation, also this month, of travel expenses billed by B.C. legislature speaker Linda Reid, a B.C. Liberal MLA, for her husband — so he could join her on a trip to South Africa. In addition to issuing a public apology, Reid has also repaid the sum in total. Whatever the mitigating circumstances of each case, neither inspires confidence in our system. Abusing public trust and dipping into public funds is, or should be, indefensible, no matter the spluttering rants of entrenched ideologues on the left or the right, who will always claim that whatever the other party did is worse. Oddly, when it comes to political impropriety, our society long ago suspended any notion of justice or punishment that automatically applies to scammers in any other walk of life. With politicians going on to reap the rewards of generous pensions, lucrative posts and valuable consultancies, it’s no wonder so many average Canadians shrug their shoulders and walk in the other direction when urged to exercise their democratic rights.

Join Team Cops for Cancer Editor: Our daughter Paige was three years old when she was diagnosed with stage 4 Wilms tumour — cancer. When we found out, my only wish was to change places with Paige and allow her a childhood shielded from the realities of surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation and countless pokes from needles. Her treatment took us from Saskatoon to Ottawa to Penticton to Vancouver. Fifteen years later, she is poised to graduate from high school in B.C.’s Southern Interior and begin the next chapter of her

life in university, albeit with the physical and emotional scars of someone that has truly been to battle. The depth of thanks we have for the care and support we have experienced over the years is immeasurable. I’m doing what I can to express my gratitude by paying it forward on July 13. I’ve signed up for Team Cops for Cancer, a squad of emergency-services personnel who are rid-

If you work in emergency services or know someone who does, please tell them about Team Cops for Cancer and encourage them to register to ride with us. Together, we can make a difference and I need your help. Registration deadline is April 7. All the information can be found online at copsforcancer.ca.

Q&A

Editor: Reports suggest Kamloops may be at risk due to spring break-related travel through the measles-infested Fraser Valley (now upwards of 200 confirmed cases). My six-year-old son is immunocompromised and immunosuppressed due to his kidney disease and cannot receive the MMR vaccine. Therefore, the only thing standing between him and the measles is herd immunity. If you’re not vaccinating your child, you’re playing Russian roulette with mine. The efficacy of a single dose of measlescontaining vaccine given at 12 or 15 months of age is estimated to be 85 per cent to 95 per cent. With a second dose, efficacy in children approaches 100 per cent. The MMR and MMRV vaccines are safe. They are effective. They do not cause autism. Get vaccinated and you can save a life. It’s that simple. Erin Mitchell Kamloops

HIS LOOKS LIKE IT SHOULD BE ON THE TITANIC.� Those were Doreen Stefanyk’s words as she loaded the old green suitcase into the trunk of her Honda Civic in the alley behind St. Andrews on the Square. She’s right. The suitcase Stefanyk was placing carefully into her vehicle is an old piece of luggage. It used to belong to her uncle, Andy Paulsen. But, how Stefanyk came into possession of the old green suitcase is not such a straightforward story. The suitcase turned up in a crawlspace in a home in Brocklehurst and was later passed on to the Kamloops Heritage Society. It was then given by executive director Mel Formanski to KTW, where it sat in the newsroom for a couple of weeks until Stefanyk was contacted. The piece of luggage itself would certainly qualify as an antique. According to a boarding pass stamped onto the thing, it’s what Paulsen, a Dane, took with him when he crossed the Atlantic and moved to Canada.

IInside id th the suitcase it are hhundreds d d off photos h t ttaken k around the world — Egypt, England, New York, the Cariboo, Denmark, Palestine. There are family photos, tourist shots, portraits of military buddies and pictures of old flames. Paulsen’s name was on that boarding pass, as well as on an old financial document inside the suitcase. With a little luck and lots of help, KTW and the Kamloops Heritage Society tracked down Stefanyk. She said her Uncle Andy died in 1990. “He was quieter, kind, had a bit of a sense of humour,� Stefanyk said. “He never had children of his own, but he was quite particular — particular about his vehicles, his flowers.� That comes across in the photos. There are a number of pictures of gardens and cars. And women — none of them Stefanyk’s aunt. “Oh, he was a charmer,� she said. “I can see that now.� As Stefanyk pored over the contents of the suitcase, she would make seemingly random exclama-

Andy Paulsen bought a parcel of Brocklehurst land off his brother, Stefanyk’s dad, in 1967. It was an orchard, but Andy turned it into residential lots — now known as Paulsen Place. Stefanyk said she hopes to create something to preserve the photos and memories.

Top 10 Money Savers Simple ways to help you save a little. Here are a few ideas to help you save money and get ahead. 1. Reduce your high-interest, non-deductible debt (like credit card balances) by paying it off with a lower-interest line of credit. Consider an allin-one account to manage house debt and reduce the amount of interest paid over the years. 2. Make the biggest RRSP contribution you can afford every year in order to maximize your potential tax return. 3. For any large purchase – especially one that you intend to finance – try to negotiate the purchase price and/or the financing conditions. 4. Cut back on impulse buys by taking a few days to reconsider any purchase over $50. 5. Shop when items are on sale and buy groceries in bulk.

6. When deciding to buy or lease a new car, work out the math carefully before you choose. A monthly lease payment may appear to cost less, but in the long run a leased car may cost you more, depending on your circumstances. 7. Take advantage of last-minute vacation package sell-offs rather than paying the full cost in advance. 8. If you receive a holiday bonus – ask if you can receive it in January as opposed to December which can defer the tax for almost a year. 9. Negotiate for non-taxable benefits at your job, such as on-site daycare, extra vacation time or better health benefits. 10. Transfer cash balances to a high interest savings account and/or an account with low fees. Speak to your advisor for other ways to help you save a little money that can add up over time.

New courses in classes By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Kamloops-Thompson board of education has approved two new courses in the district. Level-one drumline will be offered at Valleyview secondary and a hockey academy will be added at Clearwater secondary. Drumline is a fine-arts course that combines musical elements with body movements and precision-team skills. In promoting the course, district board-authority authorized course principal Kent Brewer described it as a performance course designed for students with or without musical experience. It will be offered to all secondary

grades and will involve fundamentals of drumming, musicianship, performing in an ensemble, developing critical listening and exposure to world music. The hockey academy in Clearwater is similar to one offered in Kamloops at Valleyview secondary. The school is next to an arena and the District of Clearwater has offered use of the ice for free. Head coach will be Bianca Mirabelli, who is certified by Hockey Canada Development, plays for the Kamloops Vibe elite women’s senior A team, was an assistant coach of the women’s hockey team at the University of B.C. and played two years of junior A hockey in Toronto. Cost of the academy will be $300 for the semester.

Sun Peaks students get two weeks Students at Sun Peaks school will also get a two-week spring break starting next year. Kamloops-Thompson board of education trustees have approved a recommendation to keep the school at four days a week, as it now operates, but provide the same extended break put in place for all other schools in the district in 2015. The two-week break in the school district will be double the one-week rest students have been afforded to 2014. The school district made the change as part of implementing new provincial school-calendar regulations. Surveys in Kamloops indicated a desire by parents for the longer break in March, with adjustments to the daily schedule required to provide the mandated hours of instruction. Because of Sun Peak’s unique school week, with instruction over four days for more hours per day than in the rest of the district, the board had to address the March break issue separately. Thompson Rivers University student Larissa Pepper has won $500 and a plaque after being awarded he Association of Co-Operative Education BC/Yukon University Co-Op Student of the Year Award.

TOOLS STOLEN FROM VEHICLE Sometime in the early morning of Thursday March 20th, thieves broke into truck that was parked on Juniper Ave. This has been an ongoing problem throughout the City, this time various hand tools and telephone cable were taken. The value is over $1000, but one of the biggest problems

is it interferes with the owner’s work day, to take time to replace all the tools & cable. Although this was a work truck, these thieves steal anything and do not care who they affect or what it cost to the victim. This is just another reminder to remove items of value from the

vehicle, if that is not practical find away to secure the vehicle so thieves cannot take items. If you have any information on this theft or any other thefts from vehicles, please contact Crime Stoppers, you will receive a cash reward upon arrest of the suspect.

EXPENSIVE BICYCLE STOLEN On March 17th two thieves worked together to steal an expensive bicycle from Taboo cycle in Valleyview, at approximately 2:30 pm. One male came into the store to purchase a chain, he was in and out of the store a couple of times to get various tools. This male, when finished went to

use the washroom to clean up, the owner stayed inside and was helping other customers. The bicycle was stored in an outside display rack, in front the store, when it was taken. The bicycle is described as a metallic grey Transition Bandit 29, with black Revolution wheels and Fox shocks front

and back, there not many other bikes like this in the area. The serial numbers have been recorded by the police. If you have any information on this theft, please contact Crime Stoppers, only your information will be used and never your name.

Old parking meters will stick around By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

With the Nov. 15 civic election firmly within vision, Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar asked the crowd at Wednesday ngiht’s annual general meeting of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce: “What does, ‘Time for a change’ mean?” Andrea Klassen/KTW

Mayor pushes for status quo

Milobar’s state-of-union address praises current city council By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Mayor Peter Milobar took a stand for the status quo during his annual State of the City address at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce’s annual general meeting this week. “What does, ‘Time for a change’ mean?” the mayor asked a crowd of local businesspeople at the South Thompson Inn on Wednesday, March 26. “If my car’s working well, I don’t go and change the engine out just for the hell of it.” The mayor used much of his address to praise the current city council, the chamber and other levels of government for their ability to work collaboratively, pointing to projects such as Library Square on the North Shore and the new Royal Inland Hospital expansion as fruits of those relationships.

“It’s a competitive advantage,” he said. “It’s a competitive advantage because, when we go talk to other levels of government, they know we don’t care what political stripe they are. They know we’ll work with them.” But, during a question-and-answer session following his speech, Milobar turned that praise into a cautionary tale, warning what could happen if voters rock the boat too much in the Nov. 15 civic election. “It takes a long time to create relationships, not just with the politicians at the senior levels, but the staff that work with them, to have a seat at the table for a lot of things,” Milobar said. “We have more representation provincially than we’ve had in a very long time in this city and that doesn’t come easily,” he said. “It’s not quite as simple as flicking the switch and switching people out.” Milobar said the city is already going through a transition and training period on

its staff side — its CAO and three of its directors are new to their current roles this term, as are many of the city’s senior-level managers. For that reason, he said, 2014 may not be the best time to toss out too many sitting councillors. “It can take 15 years to get us to where we’re at today and it can take one-and-ahalf bad years of bad governance and then you’re taking 15 year to catch back up again,” he said, encouraging the crowd to get out and vote and cast ballots for candidates with solid positions. Milobar also fielded questions on the sale of the Kamloops Daily News property, which will begin the alternativeapproval process in early April (allowing residents to oppose the $4.8-million purchase plan via a counter-petition), the process to build a performing-arts centre and property taxes for commercial and industrial ratepayers.

About that proposed Ajax mine . . . If the Ajax copper and gold mine south of Aberdeen is approved, Milobar said taxes from the project should be used to bring down property-tax rates for business owners, rather than residents. “I think it’s only fair to use that assessment growth within that industry,” Milobar told the crowd. “It’s industry and business helping each other.” Milobar believes taxes from the proposed copper and gold mine, as well as increased tax revenue that would come from a twinned Trans Mountain oil pipeline as Kinder Morgan is proposing, should be used in much the same way as revenue

will be used from taxes from New Gold’s New Afton mine, if the city succeeds in annexing the operation. Milobar wants to see New Gold’s taxes used to bring down rates for Domtar and other heavy industries in the city, who have complained their share of the tax bill is too high compared to what similar operations pay in other cities. Milobar said residential ratepayers would still benefit indirectly because projects like Ajax and Trans Mountain would bring more workers to town, resulting in more homes being built and more properties contributing to the tax roll.

They were supposed to go on the chopping block in November, but Kamloops’ old, coinoperated parking meters will be hanging around for a while yet. David Duckworth, director of corporate services and community safety, said the city is holding off on installing 40 digital pay stations downtown until its contractor, Precise ParkLink, comes up with a pay-by-phone app that will work with the city’s bylaw-enforcement systems. The city had originally planned to roll out all its pay kiosks at once, but hit a snag when some of the machines’ parts got delayed at customs during last year’s government shutdown in the United States. At the time, community safety manager Jon Wilson said, the remaining stations would go up in about a month. While the city added a few new stations on Lorne Street and on Victoria Street in front of the Memorial Arena in advance of the Tim Hortons Brier, Duckworth said the remaining kiosks could be more than a month from arriving. The city wants the new machines to come with a wrap that will explain the new pay-by-cellphone app, as well as a new startup screen that will prevent people from accidentally entering incorrect licence-plate information, something Wilson said has been a problem so far. But, getting an app to work with both the kiosks and the city’s licence plate-reading technology has not been easy. “If you don’t type in a space where you’re supposed to, you get the wrong information back,’ Duckworth said. “It’s all very technical.” Precise ParkLink has indicated it may look for a new app developer for Kamloops, which could lead to another two months of delays. Duckworth said it’s up to Precise to work out how it will supply the app and the city won’t pay more if there is a developer switch. “They’ve promised us a product and we’re waiting for them to deliver,” he said. Parking rates downtown doubled to $1 from fifty cents per hour when the first kiosks were rolled out and are due to rise to $1.25 an hour in 2015.

Yellow means green Dropping coins into the yellow parking meters in downtown Kamloops will help feed the needy at the New Life Mission. City council has agreed to donate money from its yellow meters to the Mission for its communitymeal program for the next three years. The Mission was selected as the organization of choice for the funds by the city’s social planning council, which looked at various community meal programs. The decision was based on frequency of meals, the organizations’ needs and other criteria.

Literacy group frustrated with funding plan dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

— a lot of the literacy co-ordinators did this — about what we do. “That committee, funded by the government to go around and listen, voted unanimously that community literacy should continue to get $2.5 million a year.�

She said there are no statistics to show the success because it’s hard to know how many children will benefit from even one parent taking a Come Read With Me workshop. “None of this would happen without that coordination.�

CORRECTION NOTICE In the Progress magazine that was published by Kamloops This Week the Convoy Supply Ltd advertisement showed the incorrect fax number. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

THE CONTRACTORS CHOICE

E TH

Fiona Clare received a call this week from a man recently released from prison. He wants to learn how to read better, she said, so he can have a chance at getting a job and staying out of the kind of trouble that landed him behind bars. Clare, the literacy-outreach co-ordinator in the city, said it’s moments like that when she knows the value of her job. It’s a job the provincial government has funded through the Decoda Literacy Solutions agency for, in Clare’s case, $12,000 a year. She’s one of 102 literacy coordinators in the province working in more than 400 communities. Each of those positions saw its funding slashed by the provincial government earlier this month — in Clare’s case, the amount drops

to $7,000 — only to get a last-minute reprieve on March 25, when the Ministry of Education said it would put $1 million back into the community-literacy budget. It’s the same thing that happened last year, Clare said. Clare said her job ranges from taking phone calls from adults wanting help learning to read to organizing literacy workshops, bringing groups together for fundraisers like the Heap a Honda book collection, ensuring the 15 Bright Red Bookshelves scattered throughout the city stay stocked with books and working to ensure the One-to-One reading programs continue in local schools. She works with a battery of volunteers. “One of the most frustrating things about this,� Clare said, “was there was this standing committee on finances that went around the province and I gave a presentation

Ireland’s ancient burial mounds By Irene B I B Butler tl TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES travelwriterstales.com

M

Y HUSBAND RICK and I are intrigued to hear of tombs dating back to 3200 BC — making them about a millenium older than Stonehenge and 400 years older than the Pyramids of Giza. We drive from Dublin to the archeological landscape of Brú na Bóinne, with its three major tombs — Newgrange, Knowth and Dowth (with smaller satellite tombs around). At the visitors’ centre we are swept up in the intrigue of these Neolithic places of ritual, called Passage Tombs, for their long entries into the burial chamber. Cairns were built above each tomb and the mounds encased in kerbstones; many of these gigantic stones bearing chiseled markings. Following the Neolithics (3000 BC to 2000 BC), the tombs continued to be used in succession by Iron Age civilizations, early Christians and Normans. We line up to catch the shuttle

to Newgrange, the most visited tomb. Its mound with 97 kerbstones covers an acre. Lindsey, our guide, points out that during the restoration process soil and grass were added to the cairn rocks to help preserve the tombs; ledges were also built out from on top of the kerbstones to keep them from weathering. “The white quartz, once on the ground at the entrance to the tomb, was incorporated into a side wall at reconstruction time. This type of stone is found over 70 kilometres away — so it is thought pilgrims may have brought these stones with them.” “Those who are not claustrophobic follow me,” says Lindsey. Passing the mega entrance stone with its mysterious swirls, we enter

th narrow tunnel. the Even with my sideways crabwalk my jacket brushes the stone along its 19-metre length, and I often scrunch down in places where the ceiling dips. I look back to see how Rick is faring. His larger stature acts as a plug to most of the natural light from the tunnel entrance. My breath catches as we enter the dimly lit burial chamber, with space enough to fit the dozen people in our group. Lindsey’s voice resonates with an eerie echo. “The corbelled roof rising six metres from the floor is as it was 5000 years ago,” she says. “It has never been restored.” I look in wonder at the huge layered rock slabs with small stones wedged between to absorb the weight stress, which with another four metres of cairn stone above the roof is immense. Lindsey draws our attention to stone basins on opposite sides of the cruciform chamber where the bones of the dead were placed during ritual, and to arcane designs on the back wall.

“This chamber was discovered in 1699 by the farmer who owned the land. It remained in private ownership for 200 years,” says Lindsey. “And, during that time, these inner walls suffered graffiti and it’s not known what was removed.” It is time to envision what eyes witnessed for thousands of years. Lindsey turns off the lights. We stand in total darkness for a few moments. She then clicks a switch. A thin shaft of pale light appears through the opening above the entrance door. I watch with bated breath as it slowly moves along the tunnel with increasing brightness. Whispered “oohs” and “ahhs” escape our small gathering. In this replication of the winter solstice, the light crosses the chamber floor and illuminates us in a golden glow. In ancient times, and still today during the Dec. 21 solstice, the chamber remains lit for 17 minutes. This heralding of increasingly longer days was no doubt met with jubilation by these ancients for

its promise of spring and crops to replenish their dwindling food supply after the long winter. About 1,000 years ago, Newgrange was abandoned for reasons unknown — perhaps famine or war. Outside again, we have time to wander on our own and examine the decorative swirls on the kerbstones, their meaning now lost. Two thirds of all the Neolithic artwork in Europe is here. Each stone weighs between one and 10 tons, and it is believed they were brought up the Boyne River by raft-type boats, then dragged on cut logs to the site. It recently took 80 men four days to move a kerbstone this distance. It is estimated to have taken 50 to 100 years to build Newgrange which, with the Neolithics’ lifespan of 30 to 35 years, meant generations. Whisked away from our captivating glimpse of long-ago human existence, we remain in awe of their engineering and astrological skills — and enveloped by an aura of mystique like a silent breath.

New Tobiano owners hoping to put an end to sales drought By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tobiano’s purchasers are hoping a change in legal status and local ownership will end a drought in sales that has brought development to a standstill. Michael Ternier, one of five new local partners in the project, said he expects the final legal hurdles will be cleared in the next three to four weeks that will see ownership transferred, through a court-ordered process, to West Winds Holding Ltd. Ternier’s partners are Fred Fischer, Stan Moskwa, Enzo Lizzi and Tarn Ollek. Lizzi is the longime operator of Excel Cabinets in Kamloops, while Ollek owns On the Rocks Pub. Ternier is part-owner of Aberdeen Highlands Development Corporation.

The new company will own undeveloped real estate and utility companies. Since 2011, Tobiano has been operated by a receiver appointed by mortgage holder BMO. The bank triggered the receivership after Tobiano owner Pagebrook Inc. could no longer meet its debt obligations. Only one lot was sold by the receiver last year. “We want to bring some stability and confidence back to it,” Ternier said. “It’s a beautiful golf course and marina. It’s close to Kamloops with fantastic lots.” The new owners will adjust overall pricing downward to reflect market realities, although some lot prices will move higher. Lots will range in price from $130,000 to $380,000. At the low end, prices are less than a lot in Aberdeen.

The resort, now a bedroom community of Kamloops, was originally billed as a tourist destination by Pagebrook president Mike Grenier, who lost control of the project and is no longer involved. Ternier said the new owners will not deviate from Pagebrook’s master plan, at least not in the near term. There are 67 serviced single-family lots available now, with another 60 in the final phases of the Ranchlands subdivision. Ternier said the company expects those to be developed in the next five to 10 years. Another 600 lots on the west end of the project also remain for development, but will await longer-term planning and sales. Two hotel sites are also available for purchase, as well as multi-family sites. The golf course is owned and operated by an unrelated company.

S

HE CALLS IT CHEMO BRAIN. After 48 hours of being able to do nothing but sleep, Madison Egli wakes up dizzy and lightheaded. She tries to do homework, taking notes for her English class, but it leaves her feeling drained. All her symptoms are side effects of drugs that have been coursing through her since her chemotherapy treatment a few days ago, on Feb. 13 — attacking the cancer. In January, Madison had no idea she had cancer. Inside her chest, a 15-centimetre mass was growing, unbeknownst to her, her family and her doctor. But a dislocated rib, the result of the mass pushing against the

KAMLOOPS

‘CHEMO BRAIN’ inside of her chest, drew their attention to what they didn’t previously know. Now, the 16-year-old NorKam secondary student is on the road to recovery, chemotherapy fighting the cancer that progressed quietly for so long, before turning her life upside down. “I can’t really focus or concentrate,” she says. “It takes a couple days of the drugs wearing off before I can think more clearly but, even a couple weeks later, it messes with your brain.” There’s also chemo mouth, a “chemically” taste, Madison says, though it’s difficult to describe. Her tongue feels slimy, foods

taste funny. It will be like this for a week or so, before things return to normal. She hopes by then she’ll be able to think well enough to do homework and foods will taste like they should again, though she finds even weeks later, chemo brain comes and goes. Madison is at home right now, in a quarantine of sorts. Her white blood cell count was low before her chemo treatment and was expected to drop even further afterwards. She needs to be careful. She can’t risk an infection. Her voice sounds tired as it travels the phone lines — she talks just as quickly, but the words

sound laboured. She’s not as upbeat as she was just a few days ago, her tone less chipper. Her nausea wasn’t as bad this time, but the last few days have taken their toll nonetheless. “Every time you get chemo, you just get knocked down,” Madison says. She feels better today, though she’s not back to feeling like herself yet. Not the type to sit idle, she longs to be exercising, to be playing basketball or riding her bike, but she knows she can’t do those activities.

XSee THE LONG A23

Canada’s premiere amateur ski and snowboard slopestyle event is underway at Sun Peaks Resort. The Dew Tour AM Series (DTAS) slopestyle competition will see men and women competing in the Rockstar Terrain Park on six of its biggest rail and jump features. “Because slopestyle has been included in the Olympics, people are getting more familiar with it and it’s being taken more seriously,” Tourism Sun Peaks media specialist Brandi Schier said. The best amateurs have already received invites to the finals on Saturday, March 29. The women get underway at 10 a.m. and the men begin at 12:30 p.m. There are open qualifiers being held today — the skiers starting at 10 a.m. and the snowboarders at 1:30 p.m. — with the winners advancing to the finals. A purse of $20,000 will be split equally between the men’s and women’s divisions. “The first-place winners get berths on the professional Dew Tour in the States,” Schier said. “That’s right up there with the X Games.” The weekend will also include the Mountain Dew Junior Rail Jam, open to boys and girls ages 13 to 16, for both snowboarders and skiers. That gets underway at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Sheepdogs will take the stage at 8 p.m. on Saturday, playing a free outdoor conert.

The long road back XFrom A22

Madison says she will head over to Westsyde secondary eventually, down the street from her house, to shoot on the basketball hoops there. Though even that will have to wait a while, until her energy returns and the weather warms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to be careful now,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to bounce back faster and go and exercise and play basketball and all that, but I have to be careful and really aware of my body.â&#x20AC;? The NorKam Saints won a game and lost a game on the weekend, putting an end to their highschool basketball season. Madison knows she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be returning to the court any time soon, but is still sad knowing there are no more games or practices on the horizon. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll eventually get back in the gym and train with her basketball coach, Lindsey Karpluk, keeping her fitness up and working on her skills. But, that too will have to wait until she feels better. And, all the while, the International Baccalaureate student knows thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schoolwork to be done, assignments to be completed, projects that take more brain power than she can muster right now. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard because you miss lots of school and then when youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling good, you try and put everything into it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; so, like two weeks of work in a week â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re obviously always going to fall behind,â&#x20AC;? she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Just trying to keep up.â&#x20AC;? Despite sounding exhausted, with the chemicals in her bloodstream affecting her concentration and the taste of her food and her homework piling up, Madison remains positive. She says things will be better tomorrow and the next day and the day after that. Though this is only her second round of chemo, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been down this road before. This time was no worse than the last. *** The evidence was on the chest X-ray, right there in front of father Cameron Egli. He flipped back and forth between the films â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first from

The tumour was shrinking. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Between the firstt X-ray, when she first got admittedd to Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and this was after one dose of chemo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; it had been reduced in size by about a quarter,â&#x20AC;? Cameron says from B.C. Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, where he and Madison were preparing for another round of chemo. The image showed the mass, a dark cloud underneath her ribcage that stretched as high as her collarbone and as low as her heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said it was shaped a little bit like Quebec. So, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lost the GaspĂŠ Peninsula and a chunk of the northern tip of Quebec.â&#x20AC;? At first the Eglis werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure they wanted to look at the images. Knowing a 15-centimetre mass of cancerous cells had been growing in Madisonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chest was bad enough; seeing it on film was a bit too real. But, for Cameron, a pharmacist, the medical background kicked in. After getting over the initial shock and fear of his daughterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s diagnosis, he decided it was time to have a look at the tumour. Madison, who initially thought she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see the tumour until after she had rid herself of it, decided she was ready, too. The trepidation they had initially felt gave way to elation when they saw the progress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were like â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Yeah, this is good, keep going,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Cameron says. Madison has felt the progress, too, despite the short-term side effects of the chemo. The bump in her chest feels smaller; the irritating skin itch that baffled family

and physicians for weeks a distant memory. The long-term side effects of the drugs are still a concern â&#x20AC;&#x201D; among the possible impacts are damage to her cardiac tissue and lungs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but doctors will monitor those in the years to come. The family is now focusing on the positives. The chemo is working and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited to see the progress Madison has made after four or five treatments. She will have an updated PET scan in the first week of April, which Cameron says will be the real indicator of cancer life in his daughter. After all the progress theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen in a short time frame, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re optimistic about the results. Optimism is what has kept Madison going. It has helped her stay on top of things after braving a tough couple of months. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only able to attend half her school days, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

Bekkering, a two-time all-Canadian who led the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack women’s soccer team to back-to-back Pacific Western Athletic Association gold medals and a nationalchampionship bronze, was named the conference’s female athlete of the year this week. The award is the most recent accolade to recognize

the WolfPack graduate’s final season. Bekkering was also named the conference’s female soccer player of the year, a first-team all-star, the provincial championship’s top midfielder and a national championship all-star. She led the conference with 13 goals in 14 games played.

Brink makes triumphant return to Kamloops Tennis Centre By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Junior Indoor Tennis Championships were a homecoming of sorts for Kamloops native Ian Brink. In the Tournament Capital for spring break, the 15-year-old Brink captured the under-18 boys’ singles

title at the Kamloops Tennis Centre on Sunday, March 23, defeating No. 2 seed John Schriemer 7-6, 7-5 in the championship final. Brink considers Kamloops home — he’s in the city most every weekend, but the tournament’s No. 1 seed attends North Vancouver’s Carson

Silver & Gold

Graham secondary during the week. “It’s tough,” Brink said. “My friends are all here and stuff. “I don’t mind Vancouver, I have a good time there. I come back on weekends so it’s all good.” Brink and his mother, Amanda, moved to Vancouver nearly two years ago, so he

could become a part of the North Vancouver School District’s Peak Performance Program. Peak Performance is available at six schools and allows elite-level athletes to schedule their schooling around demanding competition and training schedules. Brink, for example, only goes to school

until 1 p.m. He also hopes being in Vancouver and making connections in the sport there will open the door to scholarship opportunities in the U.S. down the road. Brink didn’t qualify for nationals in the winter this season, but is hoping he will be in the mix during the summer season.

Thompson Okanagan, which features five players from Kamloops, will square off against the Fraser Valley Phantoms in the provincial-final series, which runs from April 4 to April 6 on the Lower Mainland.

Collectors share passion for stamps By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Russ Kidd’s interest in stamps started when he was a youngster, probably about 10 or 11, he said. He saw an magazine ad for a package of stamps from around the world and ordered it. “I lost interest quickly,” the retired math teacher said, but it was rekindled as a young adult. “Early in my career, I was sitting with some colleagues who said they were going to a stamp auction on the weekend. I asked about it and they invited me to come along,” he said. “So, I did — and that was it. I got hooked. For Ingrid VanTamelen, her interest also began as a child — but she hadn’t anticipated it happening. She said she was 13 years old and the mailman came with a huge bundle of mail for her. “I was extremely surprised,” she said She realized a missionary she had spoken with at church — whom she told she liked to write letters — had returned to his mission in the South Pacific and told children there about the teenager in Canada who would love to be a pen-pal. Kidd and VanTamelen are busy now helping the Kamloops Stamp Club prepare for its upcoming show, sale and auction at Calvary Community Church on Saturday, April 26.

VanTamelen is involved in organizing the annual event, while Kidd is mounting some of his collection and putting it on exhibit. One he’s preparing involves per fins — stamps that were perforated with letters or symbols. It dates back to the 1860s, he said, when companies would perforate office stamps to discourage employees from taking them for personal use. “If someone used it, the post office would see the per fin and look and see if the mail was personal and could report it,” Kidd said. The first postage

stamp ever created was called the Penny Black and it went into production on May 1, 1840, in Great Britain. It featured a profile of Princess Victoria. Its creation came from a proposal to the British government three years earlier by Rowland Hill to require pre-payment of postage — until then, recipients were required to pay on delivery. Hill was given a two-year contract to run the new pre-paid system and had a competition to find a design. None of the submissions were chosen, so the government treasury opted for the profile

VanTamelen said she learned quickly the club, once vibrant, had become “three people who met in a coffee shop.” She set about revitalizing it and now the Kamloops Stamp Club, marking its 60th anniversary this year, has about 30 members. The club will be taking over the Fireplace Room at the church for the sale and,

VanTamelen said, past shows have her confident this one will be busy, too. The club is also holding monthly meetings with about 20 showing up most months. It’s not structured but more a gathering of people with a common interest. “We just want to get together and talk about stamps.”

of the teenaged queen because Hill thought it would be difficult to forge. “Collecting stamps is a hobby with such a vast range of interest,” Kidd said. “You can do general collections or specialize in a single country, mint versus used; some only collect stamps still on envelopes.” His interest has been shaped by a trip he made through Europe and Northern Africa, from where he prefers to collect stamps. VanTamelen’s area of interest flows from those bundles of letters she received as a child, focusing on the South Pacific and New Zealand. The couple, who moved to Kamloops a few years ago, said one of the first things they wanted to know was where to buy or trade stamps and when the local club meets.

Lorne Elliott set to play Sagebrush on April 8

Tickets $23.50 each @ Kamloops Live Box Office • 250-374-5483

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Invite Lorne Elliott into your living room and he won’t insult your choice of wallpaper. That’s just not the kind of comedian he is, Elliott said — although he might crack some jokes about it that will have you laughing at your wallpaper, too. He’s a storyteller, he said, a man who created Madly Off in All Directions, a CBC Radio staple for years, and who has won awards for his comedic creations. He’s been described as keenly Canadian in his storytelling and will mix his musical background with his physicality as he pokes fun in an oh-so-Canadian way at wherever he might be or whatever might have grabbed his attention. The Kamloops audience can count on something homespun, perhaps involving the sagebrush Elliott hopes is in bud by the time he gets here for his show at Sagebrush Theatre on Tuesday, April 8. The man who has been a fixture at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal said the days are long gone when he would do 300 shows a year, although he loves to be on tour. “It’s the only honest part of show biz,” Elliottt said. “There is no laugh track. People tell you honestly what they’re thinking. “Live is good because it gives something nothing else gives.

City of Kamloops Spring Cleaning Street Sweeping Notice Weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the City. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete.

Tickets for Lorne Elliott’s Kamloops show can be purchased online at kamloopslive.ca.

“In fact, just talking to you, I got an image of being on stage facing a lot of strangers with new material. “They’re looking at each other, don’t know each other and you’re doing your material and, when you hit something right, there’s a big laugh and everyone’s smiling at each other. “It’s the knitting of the community, sharing the same experience.” Elliott doesn’t remember his first time on stage — he said it must have been bad and he’s blocked it out — but he does remember his sister’s first time in front of an audience. It’s the type of memory that

he can spin into a side-splitting yarn but suffice to say the sister was going to be singing, was worried she’d forget the lyrics, taped them to the side of her guitar, got onstage and discovered she’d taped them to the wrong side. One can just imagine him shaking that head of hair as he might recount the story, all to the embarrassment — goodnaturedly, of course — of his sibling. Elliott’s in the middle of writing another novel; his first, Beach Reading, published in 2013, was a finalist for the Hugh MacLennan Fiction Prize. He also won the Playwrights Guild of Canada

Award in 2012 for best new musical for Jamie Roswell Lives. It remains the lure of the live audience that attracts him the most, he said. “I remember reading an interview with Bob Marley and I was 10 years in, it wasn’t really clicking, and he said, ‘I don’t play an instrument, I play a room.’ “That sorted things out for me. “Live gives something nothing else gives.” Tickets are $22.38 plus taxes and service charges and are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

Religion does impact mental well-being

T

HIS WEEK we received one of the most difficult questions ever: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Does religion affect our mental health in a positive or negative way.â&#x20AC;? Why is this question tough? Partly because the answer can be complex and partly because people who have strong beliefs about religion (either for or against) feel like they already â&#x20AC;&#x153;knowâ&#x20AC;? the answer. Sometimes in health (as in science in general) our personal experience is not evidence yet, at the same time, it is very difficult to deny. Maybe we are avoiding the question â&#x20AC;&#x201D; we may as well start the angry emails with a direct answer: Yes, religion affects mental health. But, the tough part is explaining that in 600 words or less. Does religion make

us mentally healthy? Yes and no â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and we arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t being wishywashy. The answer is yes if we are emotionally stable, secure and motivated appropriately. If we have some insight into our personal beliefs and how they line up with the religion we practise, then yes. Are psychological needs met from church, beliefs or congregation? Do we feel loved, that we belong, are we able to discover in healthy ways more of who we are as individuals and is that individuality supported? If yes, religion can support mental health. Can religion make us mentally unhealthy? Unfortunately and unequivocally: Yes. You see, it partly depends on how mentally well a person is in the first place, what religion they practise or believe in and many,

causes these situations rather than people who already show symptoms of neurosis and hysteria and are attracted to religion as a means of coping, understanding and finding support for their feelings and symptoms. In 1980, Dr. Albert Ellis, a psychologist who founded rational emotive therapy, published an article in the Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology claiming there is a causal relationship between religion and emotional and mental illness. Canadian psychiatrist from Hamilton, Wendall Watters, wrote that Christian doctrine discourages development of adult coping behaviors and relationship skills that enable people to adapt to anxi-

many other factors. Religious beliefs that blame symptoms of mental illness on the devil or sinful behaviour can be destructive. Counselling offices are filled with people dealing with guilt, angst, depression, rejection, divorce, suicidal thoughts and more because their lifestyle and behaviour donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t line up with religious teachings they were raised with or belong to. Did religion cause this mental disease? Some prominent figures and researchers say yes and others say no. The great French psychologist Charcot â&#x20AC;&#x201D; along with his pupil Sigmund Freud â&#x20AC;&#x201D; associated religion with hysteria and neurosis. And again, it is unfair to claim religion

ety caused by stress. To him and physicians who shared his views, religious experience could be labelled as a psychosis. It is certainly true that people who suffer from mental illness involving delusions or

hallucinations can be made to act impulsively and sometimes destructively if they believe their thoughts. So where does all this leave us? Right where we started: Each person has to determine if their

COMMUNITY Kamloops Foundation development officer Nancy Plett. Dave Eagles/KTW

A STRONG FOUNDATION By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Interest has helped grow the Kamloops Foundation. Both community and compound interest have made the non-profit successful from the first grant it received 30 years ago to its current financial base of about $5 million. “Over the last 30 years, we’ve established over 160 funds,” foun-

dation development officer Nancy Plett said. “It’s the income from those investments that have been used to give back to the community.” The organization is one of more than 190 community foundations across Canada raising money — often through memorial donations — allotting it into endowments, legacy funds and scholarship grants and bursaries. On Saturday, March

29, the local foundation will mark its 30th anniversary with a celebration at the Colombo Lodge. Plett hopes to maintain the momentum, with money raised from the event going toward building up the foundation’s community-granting funds. They are different from other funds because they are flexible — allotted at the foundation’s discretion

for community projects and programs based on need and time-sensitivity. “Our granting committee basically looks at the most pressing needs in the community,” Plett said. “We’ve supported the arts, the science centre in town, playgrounds at school grounds, the food bank.” Plett said community-granting funds account for a small portion of the foundation’s overall funds and she’d like to see them grow to match demand. “We give out approximately $30,000 each spring and fall,” she said. “But, we can’t meet the needs of the requests we get.” She said part of the demand comes from money being shared by multiple communities supported by the foundation in the Thompson, Nicola and South Cariboo regions. While the foundation

wears Kamloops in its title, it reaches to communities far and wide — Ashcroft, Chase, Clearwater and more. “There’s lots of organizations that are looking for support,”

Plett said. Tickets for the Kamloops Foundation’s fundraising anniversary dinner and auction are $65, which includes a $30 tax-deductible receipt.
