Rancher who shot dog awaits ruling on court appeal By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

CANVAS FOR YOUTH Instructor Thor Fridriksson shows South Sa-Hali elementary students Abbie Phillpotts and Malcolm Smith how to apply a white gloss over the canvas, to help make the colours pop, during the the Young Artists Conference workshops on Thursday, May 1, at the Old Main Building at Thompson Rivers University.

WEE WELCOME NEW PATIENTS OF ALL AGES

A giant Leonberger shot by a Bonaparte Plateau rancher was “viscously pursuing” cattle, a defence lawyer argued. Ruth Robinson is appealing her conviction last year under the Criminal Code for unlawfully killing an animal. In that ruling, provincial court Judge Chris Cleaveley found there was no justification for Robinson levering her .22 rifle, aiming and killing a neighbour’s dog that was sniffing at dead fish on the lakeshore. But, defence lawyer Jim Blazina, who led the appeal in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on Thursday, May 1, said Robinson’s evidence during trial, that the dog was chasing her cattle, was not contradicted. Under the Livestock Act, ranchers are permitted to shoot dogs “attacking or viscously pursuing” livestock. The dog, Bud, was a Leonberger, a massive and friendly breed native to Europe. During trial, Robinson testified Bud ran onto her property and briefly chased her cattle in a pen. When she killed it, Bud had just broken off chase and was sniffing at the shore of Sharpe Lake. “It’s not like the dog breaks off attacking, lays down for 20 minutes and gets shot,” Blazina told B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sheri Donegan. Blazina also said Cleaveley ignored Robinson’s evidence that Bud was acting aggressively.

EAT - SMILE - LIVE WITH CONFIDENCE

“The dog is out of control, not listening and chasing cattle . . . The uncontested evidence is he was viscously pursuing the cattle.” Even if the dog was not biting at cattle, Blazina said the rancher is protected in law by her honest belief that she and her livestock were in danger. Bud’s owner, Wayne Beck, watched the incident unfold through his rifle scope. He had also fired a warning shot during the episode. However, Crown prosecutor Iain Currie said there was no evidence Bud was attacking or viscously pursuing cattle. “Pursuing is not the same as viscously pursuing,” Currie said of wording contained in the act. “Ms. Robinson was not justified in shooting the dog.” The B.C. Cattlemen’s Association has complained the ruling removes ability for ranchers to protect their animals from aggressive dogs and careless pet owners. A representative of the association observed the hearing. In his original ruling, Cleaveley said the case did not set precedent, but was instead a “common-sense” judgement that Robinson wrongly shot the dog. The neighbours had squabbled in the past and Robinson testified she had experienced problems with an earlier dog owned by Beck. “He wasn’t a threat to anyone or anything at that point,” Cleaveley said in the ruling under appeal. “It was only the second time Ms. Robinson ever saw Bud. She’d never seen him chasing her cattle.” Justice Donegan has reserved decision to a later date.

Battling Weeds & Saving Water Have a lawn you can feel good about. Here are three lawn care tips that will save time, money and water: 1. Mow High Leaving grass 5 – 7.5 cm (2-3�) tall, shades the roots and helps prevent evaporation. 2. Grasscycle Leave grass clippings on the lawn when mowing. Eliminate bagging and raking and reduce watering and fertilizing. 3. Water Properly Water deeply, but infrequently. This means watering 1 - 2 days per week, but when you do, give your grass about 2.5 cm (1") of water.

THE CLOCK IS TICKING AND TIME IS RUNNING OUT!

Owner bemoans tenancy laws By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER

cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

The owner of a York Avenue home that has twice been the location of a bomb scare blamed B.C.’s residential-tenancy laws — rules he said give owners little control over their property. Bill Faryna, who told KTW he is selling homes he owns and rents out in Kamloops and Prince George, said he tried and failed several times to get an order under the Residential Tenancy Act to evict tenants of his two-storey duplex home at 769 York Avenue in North Kamloops. On Wednesday, April 30, for the second time in two months, police cordoned off an area around the home — including Bert Edwards science and technology school — and brought in the bomb squad from Vancouver. While the package found in early March was a pipe bomb, police said the most recent package was likely not an explosive device. RCMP have said they don’t know if the two events are related, other than being at the same home. Faryna said he finally got an order to evict the tenants, who include the 18-year-old autistic son of the tenant who signed the agreement. The order came as the result of what Faryna said was multiple instances of non- or late payment, as well as failure to provide a damage

deposit for a pet. He said he was bringing in a locksmith on Thursday, May 1, to evict the tenants. His son will live in the home while they do renovations. He plans to put the house up for sale. Faryna said he is trying to convince his wife to move to Hawaii, where he already owns rental property. “You give 45 days [notice],” he said of tenancy in the American island state. “If they don’t move, you phone the police. If they don’t leave, police grab them by the scruff of the neck.” Faryna also admires rules in other U.S. states regarding drug testing people collecting income assistance. “In Florida and Georgia they have the right idea,” he said. “If

you collect welfare, you should have piss test. If you’re on drugs, you don’t get your welfare.” According to a recent story from Reuters news service, a federal judge struck down that law in Florida, however, ruling it is an unreasonable search. In Georgia, a law was recently passed allowing testing if authorities have a “reasonable suspicion” of drug use. Those failing will be denied benefits. Their children would receive funding through another adult. Faryna acknowledged his neighbours have complained about the last three sets of tenants, including a man who worked as an airport-security screener and another family with three children whose

father was an automotive technician. In the first case, he said, after renting to the man, “I find he’s a loony.” Neighbours complained about parties in the latter instance. “Of course there were problems,” he complained. “They were under 30.” Faryna said he has been a landlord for 35 years. He said there are many new appliances in the York Avenue home, new carpet and renovated bathrooms up and down. He rents the top floor for $1,200, a month while the bottom floor goes for $800. Prior to the last three tenants, he said the ASK Wellness Centre set him up with a tenant who turned the home into a crack house.

Do you have a legal claim against another person, a business, or the government? Even if your claim is valid, you may be prevented from suing the other party if the limitation period has expired. A limitation period is a period of time in which a claim may be brought to the courts. If the claim is brought after the time is up, the court will usually not hear it. The legislation that governs limitation periods in B.C. is called the Limitation Act. In addition, there are a number of other statutes that determine limitation periods for different types of claims. It can therefore be difficult to figure out how long the limitation period is for your claim, and when that time period is up.

Record levels for New Afton Mine

New Afton Mine increased its gold and copper production to record levels in the first quarter of the year. Owner New Gold Inc. released first-quarter results this week showing gold production is up 83 per cent compared to the previous quarter, while copper production has increased by 86 per cent. The company said the mine on the city’s western boundary ramped up production to meet targets. Its operating costs also decreased due in part to a decline in the Canadian dollar. Increased copper production offset a decrease in the average price of copper, the company said. During the quarter, copper prices fell by 13 per cent and gold by 12 per cent. New Gold said New Afton also benefited from a decline in production costs. The mine is undergoing a $45-million expansion of its mill this year. It is expected to be fully commissioned and ramped up by the middle of 2015.

Accused killer smuggled hard drive out of prison By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

A transplanted New Zealander facing a firstdegree murder charge in the death of his wife must return a computer hard drive he managed to smuggle out of Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre. A B.C. Supreme Court Justice made the ruling as part of a lengthy disclosure application by Peter Beckett, who also faces related charges of counselling to commit murder and obstruction of justice.

The Crown alleges he killed Laura LettsBeckett, 50, by pushing her off a boat at Shelter Bay, south of Revelstoke, in 2010. He was arrested a year later. Police also allege Beckett plotted to kill five witnesses — including LettsBeckett’s parents, an RCMP sergeant and an Alberta lawyer — while behind bars. Beckett has fired four defence lawyers and is representing himself. He filed an application asking the Crown

to provide him 33,000 pages of disclosure documents rather than reading them via computer files. He earlier received DVDs and a computer hard drive with the Crown disclosure documents, which would ordinarily be handled by his lawyer. But, he smuggled them out of jail and they remain missing. “Mr. Beckett has admitted to sending the e-disclosure media [DVDs and computer hard drive] out of KRCC and he does not have it at this time,”

Meiklem said in a written decision released on Tuesday, April 29. “He refuses to say why or to whom, except to say it is ‘in a safe place.’” Meiklem ordered Beckett to return the missing DVDs and hardware to the Crown. “He has control over the person who possesses it and that person has the capacity to return it to the Crown,” Meiklem wrote. Once Beckett returns the drive and DVDs to prosecutors, Meiklem said the Crown will provide him new

e-disclosure, along with about 500 pages of paper documents needed to conduct his defence. Beckett complained earlier this week about the decision, calling it “surprising, credulous, inaccurate and biased.” Meiklem said availability to print documents at Kamloops Regional Correctional Centre is compromised. Prisoners cannot have printers because they can be altered to make weapons and the ink is prized for making tattoos. Staff cannot print documents because they are considered

Do not believe telephone scammers By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Mounties are warning Kamloops residents to be wary of phone scammers pretending to be police officers and demanding cash. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said at least two local residents have been tar-

geted by the scammers, who are likely calling from overseas. She said the crooks say they are calling from the RCMP’s revenue department. They threaten arrest and deportation while demanding cash. “They’re also bringing up the wording of Canada Revenue Agency and about seiz-

ing your passport,” Bush said. “In one case, they indicated they wanted the individual to transfer about $1,200.” Bush said the scammers aren’t targeting a specific demographic and, despite threats of deportation, neither of the Kamloops residents contacted were immigrants.

Beyond the red flags that raises, Bush said the RCMP “revenue department” is not a real thing. “That would not be a department that would exist,” she said. “And, that would not be a department that would be calling people and asking them to transfer money.” Bush said attempts

to trace the calls were unsuccessful because they were placed through an online service that does not track IP addresses. Anyone who thinks they might be the target of scammers can call police at 250-828-3000.

and March 2012. Leong’s lawyer, Ken Walker, said the Crown wants to schedule the trial for April 2015, but he may apply to get it moved back later in the year. A preliminary inquiry was held last month. Last September, Leong elected to be tried by judge and jury in B.C. Supreme Court. The heritage railway board resigned en masse in May 2012. A new board ordered an audit, which raised questions about the struggling society’s finances and

Leong’s role as treasurer, a position he held for two decades. None of the allegations have been heard in court. Transport Canada ordered the 2141 steam engine off the rails due to mechanical problems. While repairs were originally estimated at several hundred thousand dollars, society representatives recently said it can be brought up to standard for less and fundraising has begun. Leong was first elected to Kamloops council in 1990 and served a number of terms.

Boogie rookies can be found playing training hooky

A

LL-YOU-CAN-EAT SUSHI WAS NOT THE 10 KILOMETRES I WAS SUPPOSED TO BE RUNNING THAT NIGHT. Intervals of running and walking turned into ingesting rounds of vegetable rolls and tempura. “Getting here is the hardest part,” Run Club coach Jo Berry reminded me in my head. After six weeks of weekly training for Boogie the Bridge, it all crashed down with the weight of a yam tempura roll. I considered my former enthusiasm. This training was going to prepare me for half-marathon training — maybe even marathon training — get me back into those old pants and undoubtedly change my life forever. I rallied others for the event and created a Facebook group to “hold each other accountable, post healthy recipes and motivate each other.” Reality set in fast. The online forum was nothing but crickets. And, a marathon? Ha – um, no. On this particular day, however, I had fully intended on running past Royal Tokyo during the downtown jaunt, not rolling out of it. The usual life stresses festered throughout the day and rushing from the office to run had become routine. It was nothing unusual as I pushed my way outside into the real world. Then I felt it. Rain. One-by-one, wet drops began poking me, testing my patience. I looked up into the grey abyss and came to my conclusion quickly — there was no chance in hell I

GAP would be running that night. Call me a fair-weathered runner or call it the straw that broke the camel’s back but, with less than half an hour before Run Club started, my impulse decision came down to an obvious choice. I would hope I wasn’t the only one with a case of the rainy-day blues. Fifteen minutes later, I was sitting in a sushi restaurant with six of my friends and family. That’s right — seven of us skipped running that night to indulge in allyou-can-eat sushi. (Sorry, Jo.) Not only were we Boogie-rookies playing hooky, we were testing fate at a restaurant just blocks from where we were supposed to be. I imagined a group of Run Clubbers catching us seaweed-handed as they ran by and saw us in the window on Victoria Street — stuffing our guts as they worked off theirs. Maybe they wouldn’t notice a couple of us gone, but seven is pretty hard to miss. Despite the obvious irony of skipping exercise to binge-eat, I didn’t

have a care in the world, though — the green tea, sushi and company were a comfortable, familiar setting. If anything, they were part of my usual routine. It was actually the whole runningafter-work thing that was out of my element. The fact I had signed up for the clinic at all seemed like a bonus — so, missing one session was OK. After all, seven Tuesdays of sushi weren’t all that unlikely in my regular schedule and I didn’t have to be perfect. Convincing myself of this tasted as good as the second round of yam tempura roll. That Tuesday was a bit of a training setback — clearly — but, during my two months of training, I did learn some valuable lessons. One, seemingly ironic: Driving to run means new scenery and less time focused on when it’s all going to be over. Two, running in a group is a great way to gauge fitness. If you can talk to the runner beside you, you can breathe. If you can breathe, you’re still alive — success. Three, walking is your physical break, your mental break, your friend. Plus, you can pad your stats with the extra minutes. Finally, even if you cave, call it quits and binge eat at Royal Tokyo one week, next week you can just walk a bit more, take in the scenery and be grateful for good health. Because that’s something worth celebrating — over sushi. jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a reason why we call them first responders. Police, firefighters and paramedics are the first people called when we need help. It used to be for fires, car accidents or falling from a tree. But soon, police, firefighters and paramedics are going to have to add “social worker” to their job descriptions. When they’re walking or biking the beat, police are often the ones contacting socialservice providers for people in need, checking on vulnerable people to ensure they’re safe and diffusing dangerous situations. It’s a specialized skillset that used to fall to case workers. As the provincial government closes facilities for people with mental illness and reduces services and resources, caseloads for social workers increase and people fall through the cracks. Where the police used to be the last call, now they’re often the first. Care for people with mental illness, brain injury or developmental disabilities is complex. With fewer doctors available to take new patients, those highmaintenance clients are left calling crisis lines and walk-in clinics for stop-gap measures instead of a solution. Add in poverty, poor nutrition and barriers to housing and it doesn’t take long for someone barely getting by to suddenly end up in crisis. It takes a community to raise a child, but it also takes a community to ensure our mostvulnerable people are safe and cared for. That means access to food and nutrition, health care, adequate social services and affordable housing – not a jail cell.

Editor: On behalf of the Canadian Cancer Society, I would like to thank Kamloops for supporting Daffodil Month during April. Every three minutes, another Canadian is faced with a cancer battle. It’s likely the disease has affected almost everyone in Kamloops, be it a personal diagnosis or that of a loved one. By wearing the daffodil pin in April, Kamloops residents collectively stood together to show people living with cancer they are not alone in the fight. With the support of our volunteers, donors and community partners, the Canadian Cancer Society is leading the charge in the fight against all cancers — of which there are more than 200 types. Each and every day, we are working hard to accomplish our mission of eradicating cancer and enhancing the quality of life of those living with the disease. We do this by funding the most promising cancer research, offering vital support to those living with cancer, and trying to prevent cancer in the first place by educating Canadians about early detection and advocating for healthy public policies. Thanks to the generosity of donors and our more than 7,500 volunteers, we anticipate the Daffodil Month initiative will raise $5 million in B.C. this year alone, which will have a substantial and important impact in our fight for life. The Canadian Cancer Society’s continued impact in the fight for life would not be possible without the generosity of our volunteers, donors and community partners in Kamloops. We are very grateful for your support and wish to thank you for joining us in the fight for life. Together, we can change cancer forever.

Oil-sands worker ordered to pay court fine A man convicted of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking more than four years ago has paid only $2,200 of a $10,000 fine levied as part of his sentence. A Crown lawyer sought this week to jail Bryan Moore for 95 days for non-payment, using a formula spelled out

in the Criminal Code. “He’s had three extensions and only $2,200 of the fine has been paid,” prosecutor Anthony Varesi said. Earlier extensions detailed the $300 a month Moore was supposed to pay, but largely failed to do so.

He was originally sentenced in January 2010. B.C. Supreme Court Justice Ian Meiklem said he expects $500 a month to be paid by the oil-sands worker. He told Crown to bring back its application to court asking for jail time on the first occasion Moore fails to make a monthly payment.

Have you seen Kamloops man wanted by Kelowna Mounties Robert Clarkson?

A 58-year-old Kamloops man is missing from his Aberdeen home. Kamloops RCMP said it is seeking public help to locate Robert Clarkson, who has medical concerns. He went missing from his home on Harrison Place in Aberdeen on Wednesday afternoon (April 30). Clarkson is six-feet tall, weighs 176 pounds and has grey hair. Staff Sgt. Lane Jumaga said Clarkson was last seen wearing grey ROBERT slacks, a button-up shirt with a patCLARKSON tern and a beige baseball cap. He was carrying a small bag over his shoulder. Mounties asking the public to call 250-828-3000 if they spot anyone matching Clarkson’s description.

The Kelowna RCMP is looking for a Kamloops man after an SUV was involved in a hit and run before fleeing from police early Thursday morning (May 1). At about 2:30 am, police were investigating a complaint of threats on Bernard Avenue at Water Street when a vehicle could be heard revving its engine, followed by crunching noises. Mounties said a police officer saw a dark-coloured SUV on the sidewalk and heard bystanders shouting at the driver to stop. The two men involved in the threats complaint had apparently jumped into a

Emergency crews were called to the train tracks at Ja Moore Crossing, just east of Salmon Arm, at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, April 29, for a report of a man struck by a train. RCMP say the 45-year-old man was riding his bicycle west along the train tracks and didn’t see the train coming. He suffered minor injuries, including a head laceration, and was taken to hospital for treatment.

A 37-year-old Kamloops man could face a number of potential charges, including flight from police, failure to remain, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and assault with a weapon.

ABOVE THE LAW: FAMILY COURT

LIKE US ON FACEBOOK

FACEBOOK.COM/KAMLOOPSTHISWEEK

Government insists it is god, legislating against the divine natural law of a father’s love for his child, self-evidence of gov’s crimes and its latest victims are plastered in the news; at least three times last month a father was driven to the extreme of murdering their ex after courts ruled heavily prejudiced in favour of the woman as is to often the case, without ANY consideration for the father’s feelings. Frankly the treatment a parent is subjected to by family court judges often can be described as “legal” cruel and unusual treatment; it’s one thing to demand unreasonable alimony as often is the case, but to arbitrarily deny a parent access to their child, there is no greater punishment; a fate worse than death, slowly tearing away at a person from the inside out, turning an otherwise good man to bad, sometimes leading to death as we all witnessed. It’s these kinds of events that make a man lose faith in government and the society they have created acting as gods of the public domain. [keep in mind the devil is considered a god by some] These events are not the exception; there are literally thousands of parents subjected to this kind of torture day in and day out in this sick society because god/government “thinks” it knows best; yes indeed even going so far as to sometimes remove BOTH parents for what gov bureaucrats deems as a sin. I know of parents who were forced to subject their child to ten vaccines at once because the child had never gotten any shots over the span from birth, [and was perfectly healthy] but in order to get social assistance it was god/gov’s law that the child had to have them even though it made the child sick. Regardless of what anyone “thinks”, In reality government is nothing more than a heartless apathetic machine like the presumptuous titanic, steaming towards an iceberg of ignorance and malice without consideration for its passengers.[understand a god is one who is not held accountable for its actions] It’s interesting to note, out of all the child deaths in Canada, it’s more common for more deaths to happened in the care of gov child services than in parents care. I couldn’t ¿nd the numbers for BC, but a recent article stated, from 1999 up to last year, 145 children died in Alberta’s ministry care, half of them were NEVER reported. And in no case were any public servants held accountable. As humans we have emotions and feelings that we can’t control because they are caused by outside factors; Just like I ¿nd myself getting angry just reading the statistics and watching the news knowing innocent children are being harmed by governments incompetence. The insanity of humanity playing gods as if it were girls playing Barbie dolls, government really is childish in its actions to disregard human emotions as if we were all robots that could have legislation programmed into us while shitting alimony payments out like golden eggs. Ignorance of the law is no excuse, its only because we are incompetent to act or think for ourselves that we need a nanny state to legislate; but think outside of the box, learn to be responsible for your own actions; Understand you are sovereign, you bring the law in your family court. [Mathew 5:25] In my case, before our child was born, we agreed on worst case scenarios; in case of divorce we would share custody and costs, there would be no alimony or power trips. Eventually years later we did grow apart, during the legal proceedings, my ex was given a high priced lawyer from her union. Before we went in court, the lawyer was making usual demands and threats. When we got into court, I stood up and told the judge we had it all arranged and organized long ago, there would be no alimony or demands. The judge asked my ex if that was the case, and she agreed. The lawyer objected n wined but the judge told her to sit down and shut up because we had come to an agreement on our own that was binding and lawful. Today we now have a great relationship as ex’s/friends, rarely do we have a problem, we both support each other and adjust to our sons needs, and best of all our son was not put in the middle to be used as a physiological weapon. Now our agreement was verbal, but I would recommend in this day n age to do a simple written agreement with witness before the child is even born, preferably even conceived. This way if things go sour, one parent can’t use the kids as a weapon. Law doesn’t have to be complicated. The same can be said for a simple relationship; last year the nanny state legislate sticking its narcissists nose where it doesn’t belong; legislating a mate is entitled to half your property if you have lived together for merely a year, which only serves to Àood the fragile court system and create wars of wicked words, which as we witness in the news can lead to deadly outcomes. By crafting a written agreement, [with two witness signing] you are creating a legal binding contract/agreement stating both agree not to claim the other’s property, nor will you seek support from the other so that in this way you can be con¿dent a person isn’t loving you for your ¿nancial assets. It is also better get an agreement early on when things are good, because often when things go bad, feelings get the better of a situation that can lead to a dangerous build up of human emotion from a cause and effect that is ABOVE THE LAW.

Annette Glover is pleased with the number of motions with a Kamloops link that were passed last weekend by the B.C. School Trustees Association at its annual meeting. Glover, a member of the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s board of education and chairwoman of the Thompson/Okanagan branch of the BCSTA, said all but one of the branch’s 10 motions sent to the AGM were passed — almost one-third of the 34 considered at the meeting. While some of the subjects might be seen as motherhood issues, they remain real and essential to learning, Glover said. The branch included motions on issues including providing student teachers with learning to boost their ANNETTE GLOVER: Kamloops-Thompson school skills to support students in social and emotional trustee at AGM. learning; to improving the provincial system in place to address youth mental-health; to providing full funding for boards of education. Special-education funding was another issue addressed in a motion that notes classrooms often have students with issues that are not formally recognized by the Ministry of Education and do not receive additional supports required for them to be successful. Glover said she was happy to see a motion addressing the management and executive-staff compensation freeze addressed, noting it is becoming more difficult to fill administrative vacancies.

parents] to leave me alone,” she said with a laugh. She was 22 at the time and thought, “Yeah, right.” But, Gingrich enjoyed the company of students she had never spoken to outside her own program and soon realized it wasn’t the technical “fixing” of people that drew her into the medical field. A visit to the doctor made it even clearer. Piles of paperwork and limited doctor-patient time pushed her further away from the dream. “I remembering thinking, ‘OK, is that what I am signing up for?” “I realized actually being a doctor wasn’t a good fit.” She graduated from UBC and continued down her new path, earning her master’s in 2012 from Lutheran Theological Seminary in Saskatoon. She wanted a break before committing to the mandatory three-year pastoral role after graduation and went to Madagascar for an accompaniment-form of ministry. Gingrich taught English, ethics, pastorship and baking — having learned to cook with charcoal in Benin. But, despite kindness and hospitality from her community, she felt isolated due to language barriers and lonely from the culture shock that comes with starting a new life across the planet. That’s when a curious street dog started coming around. She opened its eye because it was permanently shut closed and the dog seemed to gravitate toward her. “She was just this little pup, always dirty and covered in fleas and ants,” Gingrich said of the Madagascar multi-breed dog.

BC SPCA Kamloops Branch takes on the Prince George Branch in 2014 City Challenge this month.

BY JESSICA WALLACE • STAFF REPORTER • JESSICA@KAMLOOPSTHISWEEK.COM ANE GINGRICH AND her dog landed at Hills of Peace Lutheran Church unexpectedly. Had the journey taken a different turn, Gingrich today could be practising medicine and her dog could still be on the streets of Madagascar. Instead, Gingrich is the church’s new pastor and the dog is right by her side. The 30-year-old VancouverIsland native always thought she’d be working in the medical field — or at least be doing something science-related. Faith always played a role in her upbringing — her father was a pastor and her brother eventually became one, too — but she had different life goals. Gingrich grew up on a farm with a love for animals and thought she might become a veterinarian. But, upon learning of a demand for health-care workers for the elderly, she settled on geriatric medicine, leading her to UBC’s science program, where she took courses in biology, physics and calculus. The first red flag was her grades. “I’d failed a few classes,” she said. Gingrich considered her options and, like many university students, opted for travel, backpacking in Europe before joining a youth exchange to Benin in Africa. She lived with a local family and volunteered while still “convincing myself I wanted to be a geriatrics doctor.” She returned home to B.C. to begin a new path — a bachelor of arts degree. Despite a lack of experience, Gingrich landed a job as a chaplain, “mostly to get them [her

Did you know that most people will survive cancer, a heart attack or stroke?

Gingrich didn’t want the attention. “Dogs are taboo and dirty. You don’t touch dogs,” she said of the feeling toward canines on the African island. “It’s bad enough when you’re the white girl down the street.” She considered companionship from the animal, however, and asked around her community to determine if it would be possible to bring the dog home. Gingrich didn’t want to turn students away from her opendoor policy and she didn’t want to start feeding a dog when she would inevitably leave for home. “It’s not my culture, but it’s your culture,” was the resounding community response. When she came back to Canada with her dog, she reconnected with people. “The first view months, it was definitely an internal struggle,” she said of another dose of culture shock. She wanted to find a balance to be “authentically me with the experience integrated into who I am, but be present in a culture that doesn’t understand,” she said. Gingrich’s experiences have changed her. She notices individual ownership versus communal ownership has been the biggest contrast and she’s built her life around a slower mantra — walking to work and chatting with people on the streets. But her dog — named Finara after the community in which she lived — is a humbling reminder of Gingrich’s experience abroad when she text messages with her friends in Madagascar. Because her friends call Finara by a different name — “lucky dog.” “Because she was going to Canada,” Gingrich said.

Throughout the month of May, the two SPCA branches will be holding community events to raise as much money as possible to fund programs for abused, neglected, homeless and injured animals.

Skill for Jobs raises some concerns By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

While she’s grateful for the attention the provincial government is giving to trades education, Denise Harper is concerned about the new Skills for Jobs Blueprint: Re-engineering Education and Training, which was announced this week. For example, the chairwoman of the Kamloops-Thompson board of education welcomes the idea of industry partnering with education as students study the trades, but wonders why shop classrooms can’t be properly equipped and why the province is promoting students using those same industry worksites

as classrooms. “It seems like a shaky way to plan,” Harper said. She’s also unclear about the funds connected to the plan announced together by various miniseries — advanced education, education, natural-gas development and aboriginal relations and reconciliation — noting she hasn’t seen anything that indicates it is new money being put into the program, rather than existing funds being reallocated. Harper is pleased to see the number of accelerated creditenrolment spots in the province doubling to 5,000. The school district had 68 students enter that program last year and, Harper said, that number has grown through the years.

“So, this gives us room to grow more,” she said, adding that many elements of the provincial program are the kinds of things the district’s current and past principals for trades and technologies — Sheryl Lindquist and, before her, Greg Howard — haven been introducing, starting with the trades trailer the district used to take the learning to students and now with the new NorKam Trades Centre of Excellence, which is scheduled to open next February. “We’ve been doing our best, and so have many other communities, to turn out well-rounded, engaged students,” Harper said. “This [provincial plan] isn’t going to change our jobs at all.”

Scouts are making Good Turns all week STAFF REPORTER

jklymchuk@kamloopsthisweek.com

Scouts Canada is making an effort to highlight the power of a small gesture of kindness during its fifth annual Good Turn Week, which runs to Sunday, May 4. Scouts from across Canada will be encouraging community members to participate in random acts of kindness and the pay-itforward mentality. Kamloops area Scouts youth commissioner Owen Paetkau, 18, said the Scouts practice good turns regularly, but will take this week to encourage the rest of the community to do the same. “I hope by the end of the week there are

A

people doing good turns just for no reason,� he said. Every once in a while, there is word of a succession of free coffees at the local drive-thru, but how often are Canadians actually participating in random acts of kindness? Scouts Canada commissioned a survey that showed 51 per cent of Canadians are the recipient of a good turn at least once a month, while 28 per cent report the same happening at least twice a week. “As Canadians, we are astoundingly friendly people,� Paetkau said. “So, we can up those numbers a lot

more, I think, by doing things like going and holding open a door or spotting someone a few cents if they are missing it at the cash register or helping them with their groceries. “Small things are good turns and that’s what we’d like to promote.� Holding the door open for another, giving up your seat on public transit and buying coffee for someone else are all encouraged in this challenge given by Scouts Canada. In the past, the local Scouts have helped out at the food bank and worked in community neighbourhoods cleaning up garbage. Paetkau was hoping to organize a cloth-

ing drive during Good Turn Week and donate the collection to the Salvation Army. About 40 members of the 1st Couteau Scout Troop — consisting of 11- to 13-yearolds — cleaned up the site at Ink Lake on April 23. “It’s important that we try and do something for good turn week because it’s an emphasis on the good turns, even though we do it throughout the year,� Paetkau said, noting he hopes every scout will spread the word. Scouts Canada funded good-turn projects across the country after challenging Scouting youth to come up with their best ideas to help their community. In Richmond, non-certification CPR-training sessions will be offered to 144 residents. In Port Coquitlam, Scouts will build nesting boxes for the diminishing population of purple Martins in the Pitt River intertidal wetlands. “I think Scouts Canada is trying to show Canadians that if we can do good turns even more, the world will become a happier place,� Paetkau said.

While Paetkau has been b a little unnerved by b all the vaccinations he has had to get in the last few weeks, he’s excited about helping to help improve life in Madagascar. “In my letter, I talked about wanting to help a Third-World country,” Paetkau said. “Being part of scouts, one of the things is you want to help others, you want to make the community a better place. “By going to Madagascar, I have the opportunity to do that.” Paetkau said the project has a budget of $86,000. Each brick the scouts lay will be done at a cost of $5, once labour, transportation and materials are factored in. He is now working to pay his portion of the trip, which will come at a cost of $3,750. Scouts Canada is doing an online fundraiser (https://scouts.thankyou4caring.org/madagascar) to fund the trip and Paetkau is working on some fundraisers of his own — bottle drives and possibly a move night featuring the DreamWorks film Madagascar — to cover his costs. The physics major is confident he can raise most of the money he needs to make the trip to Africa, but will cover any remaining costs personally. For the scout who believes it’s his duty to make the world a better place, it’s a small price to pay.

FOR A O WAYSCOUTING TO GIVE BACK WEN Paetkau believes it’s his duty as a scout to make the world a better place for the youth of tomorrow. That’s the driving force behind the Kamloops rover scout’s July trip to Ambato Boeni, Madagascar. Paetkau and 14 other scouts from across the nation will be building a three-classroom school in the African community — where Scouts Canada has previously completed projects in 2010 and 2012 — providing 150 youth with education. The group will also help to install an irrigation system for the community’s crops. Paetkau is one of four B.C.-based scouts making the trip overseas. He will be in Ambato Boeni from July 12 until August 7. “I’m looking forward to experiencing the culture and meeting all these new people who have a different way of life than we do,” the 18-year-old Thompson Rivers University science student said. “Just getting that real-life experience that you don’t get at home.” The project’s 15 participants were selected by Scouts Canada after each submitted a letter explaining why they wanted to go on the trip and what made them good representatives for the organization.

Longboarders warned By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops Mounties are warning longboarders to obey rules on local streets or face steep consequences. RCMP Cpl. Cheryl Bush said city bylaws set out clearly what longboarders, skateboarders and in-line skaters can and canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do on the streets of the Tournament Capital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting calls from concerned citizens,â&#x20AC;? she said, noting boards can be seized for 60 days and fines of up to $2,000 can be levied. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are parameters within the city bylaws under which they are to operate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we get calls from the public, we respond to them. And, if we see something unsafe, generally, we will address it.â&#x20AC;? According to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bylaws, boarders are not allowed on any arterial road in Kamloops or any roads or sidewalks in downtown or along the Tranquille business corridor on

the North Shore. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also an all-encompassing bylaw prohibiting boarders from â&#x20AC;&#x153;any road in such a manner that impedes, obstructs or otherwise interferes with vehicular traffic or movement or without due consideration of others using the road.â&#x20AC;? In addition, the city has a list of â&#x20AC;&#x153;steep gradesâ&#x20AC;? (see below) on which boarders, skaters and scooter-users are never allowed to operate, no matter the circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Obviously, the downhill grades are enticing to them [boarders],â&#x20AC;? Bush said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But, you really have to keep motorists in mind.â&#x20AC;? Anyone with complaints or concerns about boarders can call police at 250-828-3000 or City of Kamloops bylaw enforcement at 250-828-3409.

MOTHER’S DAY

Give a new mom gift of memories Ask any new mom what she’d like this Mother’s Day, and she’ll likely ask for a few extra hours of sleep. Between feedings, diaper changes and interrupted nights, most mothers of newborns can use all the help they can get. If you have a new mom in your life, help make her first Mother’s Day one that she’ll always remember. Canadian lifestyle expert Janette Ewen offers these tips for choosing thoughtful gifts for the new mom: • Time is precious. If you arrange something like a cleaning service, the delivery of groceries or a qualified baby-sitting service, you will surely ease the workload and put a smile on her face. “Even volunteering a few hours to empty the dishwasher and fold some laundry can be a huge help for parents of newborns,” Ewen points out. • Make her feel special. How about a gift card that ensures she takes time out for her body, mind and soul? A voucher for a pedicure or hair appointment makes her feel pampered, it also gives her some much needed alone time. • Celebrate special milestones. If you prefer to give her a keepsake to honour her first year as a mother, a gift of jewelry may be just the thing. “Pandora Mother’s Day collection of charms, statement rings, pendants, clips and earrings are all eyecatching symbols of love and motherhood,” says Ewen. “If you’re buying for a new mom, why not start a charm bracelet, so you can continue to add to it in years to come? “Motherhood is filled with milestones, so imagine if the first sterling silver charm is the new Baby Girl or Baby Boy charm or the new

two-tone Vintage Heart. “One of my favourite gifts for a new mom is a sterling silver letter pendant with the baby’s initial,” says Ewen. Spring is in full bloom by Mother’s Day, and this year Pandora jewelry designers bring the two occasions together with hand fin-

ished pink enamel roses, spring flowers, symbolic hearts and filigree lace. “And, all of the pieces are made from sterling silver or 14-karat gold,” Ewen points out. Additional information is available online at Pandora.net. newscanada.com

MOTHER’S DAY

Go nutty for special Mother’s Day dessert Show mom you care this Mother’s Day by adding a nutritious spin on one of her favourite desserts. Packed with crunchy wholesome almonds, fresh strawberries and tasty rhubarb, this crumble is the perfect little treat to enjoy on this special day. The recipe was created for the Almond Board of California by Emily Richards, author of Get In The Kitchen and COOK. Serve the crumble with a drizzle of velvety almond cream for that added hit of deliciousness. Strawberry Rhubarb Almond Crumble with Almond Cream Serves 8 3 cups (750 ml) fresh or frozen chopped rhubarb 2 cups (500 ml) halved fresh strawberries 1/4 cup (50 ml) packed brown sugar 3 tbsp. (45 ml) ground almonds 1/4 cup (60 ml) whole wheat flour 3/4 cup (175 ml) large flake oats 2 tbsp. (30 ml) chopped almonds 2 tbsp. (30 ml) soft non hydrogenated margarine Almond Cream 3/4 cup (175 ml) almond milk 1 tbsp. (15 ml) cornstarch 1/2 tsp. (2 ml) vanilla

Crumble: In a large bowl, combine rhubarb, strawberries, sugar, ground almonds and half of the flour. Divide among eight one-half cup (125 ml) ovenproof ramekins or mason jars; set aside. In another bowl, stir together oats, chopped almonds, remaining flour and margarine until crumbly. Spoon on top of fruit and place jars on a baking sheet. Bake in 375 F (190 C) oven for about 30 minutes or until fruit is tender and bubbly and top is golden. Let cool slightly. Almond Cream: Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, heat almond milk and vanilla over medium heat until just bubbling. Whisk together cornstarch with one tablespoon (15 ml) of water and whisk into almond milk. Cook, stirring for one minute or until thickened. Drizzle some of the almond cream over each crumble to serve. More recipes can be found online at almonds.com. This recipe has been evaluated by the Heart and Stroke Foundation registered dietitians and is part of a healthy diet based on recommendations in Canada’s Food Guide.

NATIONAL NEWS

Father wants daughter’s case public HALIFAX — The father of the alleged victim in a prominent child-pornography case says he’s opposed to a publication ban on her identity because it will erase her tragic story from public. A provincial-court judge in Halifax cited a mandatory publication ban Wednesday that prohibits the identification of victims in childpornography cases. The girl’s father said in an interview Thursday he plans to oppose the ban

before the courts if it isn’t lifted. The teenaged girl died last year and the case has resulted in national headlines since then. “You’ve just taken something very public with my daughter and hidden it in a closet and I don’t want this in a closet. I want this out in public for all to see,’’ said the father, who cannot be identified because of the ban. The man also said his

ability to make effective arguments for reforms and to raise public awareness may be harmed by the judge’s ruling. “I think it [the ban] would have a very negative impact. “A lot of what’s happened in the case has happened because it’s been very public,’’ he said. The girl’s mother was unavailable for comment Thursday. Two teens face charges of

distributing child pornography in connection with the case, while one of them also faces a charge of making child pornography. Judge Jamie Campbell cited the ban under Section 486 of the Criminal Code, which prevents the naming of victims of child pornography, after a Crown lawyer noted the relevant section. “At this point, that’s a mandatory order and the mandatory order has been made because it is manda-

tory,’’ the judge said in court after listening to the Crown’s comment. Campbell said he expected the order to “create considerable difficulty’’ for media outlets. John Piccolo, a spokesman for the Nova Scotia courts, said Campbell has informed him he will address the publication ban in court on Friday, May 16. In his comments on Wednesday, Campbell also cited Section 111 of the

Harper announces money for autism and Alzheimers research

MONTREAL — The federal government will spend more than $9 million supporting five research projects to study autism and Alzheimer’s disease. The goal of the research is to discover new treatment and prevention strategies. Prime Minister Stephen Harper made the announcement on Thursday, May 1, in Montreal. “It’s fair to say that, directly or indirectly, there’s hardly a Canadian who does not know someone affected by neurological illness,’’ Harper said. “Roughly three pounds of water and fat, our brains are the source of so much of our potential and the starting place for much of the accomplishment of human history.’’ The federal funds are part of a public-private partnership that involves the Brain Canada Foundation, the Azrieli Foundation and the Chagnon family. Ottawa also announced it would match $3.25 million in new funding by the Azrieli Foundation. The government investment is part of Ottawa’s commitment to provide up to $100 million over six years, from 2011 to 2014, to support research in neuroscience and the treatment of brain disease and mental disorders. Researchers at McGill University, the University of Toronto, McMaster University and the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health will lead the projects. — Canadian Press

Workers in favour of strike

BURNABY — The union representing 47,000 B.C. health-care workers, including emergency dispatchers, dietary staff and care aides, has voted 96 per cent in favour of a strike. The workers belong to 11 unions represented by the Facilities Bargaining Association, which says benefits, employment security and improved health and safety provisions are key issues. Workers seeking a new contract are employed at hospitals, residential-care facilities and in emergency-health services. — Canadian Press

Youth Criminal Justice Act, which says the parents of a deceased youth may provide a waiver allowing for the identification of a victim. Michael Scott, the father’s lawyer, said he is awaiting instructions from his client on when to proceed with an application to lift the publication ban, and he will be watching to see if media outlets make a similar application.’ — Canadian Press

Questions about university overhaul in Saskatoon REGINA — The Opposition NDP is raising concerns in the legislature about an overhaul of the University of Saskatchewan, but the government says everything is under control. The Saskatoon-based university has released a plan that includes cutting jobs, reorganizing the administration and dissolving some programs to try to save about $25 million. NDP Leader Cam Broten says students are on edge over program cuts and the government is dismissing concerns from faculty. Broten notes the plan calls for the School of Public Health

to be rolled into the College of Medicine, which he says could jeopardize the college’s recently earned international accreditation. Advanced Education Minister Rob Norris says concerns from students, staff and faculty are not overlooked. Norris says the restructuring is an internal university matter that will make the school better and not jeopardize any accreditation. The plan is part of a bigger response by the University of Saskatchewan to address a projected $44.5-million deficit in its operating budget by 2016.

It was developed by the provost’s committee and includes proposals to cut three dean positions and dissolve the Centre for Continuing and Distance Education, as well as the Education and Media Access and Production unit by the end of the year. It also warns almost every level of the university and virtually every employee will be affected by a new organizational design. The provost’s committee says due to the magnitude of the changes being contemplated, the journey will be “arduous.’’ — Canadian Press

SASKATOON — Saskatoon police discovered the body of a woman in a culvert just 15 minutes after searching an area where her husband’s truck had driven to a few days before. David Woods is on trial charged with first-degree murder in the death of his wife, Dorothy. On Jan. 2, 2012, police GPS tracked Woods’ truck leaving Saskatoon on Highway 11, heading south and exiting onto a dirt road before heading back onto Highway 11 and turning around somewhere south of Blackstrap Lake and north of Hanley. Sgt. David Hudson, the lead investigator in the case, testified on Thursday, May 1, the route Woods’ truck took around 4 p.m. struck him as strange. He said police decided to search the Blackstrap Lake Valley area two days later on Jan. 4 — 15 minutes into the search, they found a body in a culvert. Hudson said the body was face-down, wrapped in polyurethane wrap and encased in ice, which had to be melted. — Canadian Press

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Broken manâ&#x20AC;? Rob Ford headed for rehab TORONTO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mayor Rob Ford left home on Thursday, May 1, bound for rehab hours after announcing plans to deal with his substance-abuse problems amid a triple dose of scandalizing revelations that have raised further questions about his fitness for office. Confronted with reports of a recent video showing him allegedly smoking crack cocaine, an audio recording of the mayor spewing profanities and making lewd comments about a fellow mayoral contender and witness accounts of him

snorting cocaine at a city nightclub, Ford took a leave of absence to seek â&#x20AC;&#x153;immediate help.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a broken man. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a lot of demons,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer Dennis Morris. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He realizes that heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not well and in need of help. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just running off the rails. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something he now appreciates.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Ford did not speak to reporters in front of his home as he left in a two-car convoy on Thursday, May 1. A private plane flew him to

Chicago, Global TV reported, while CBC cited Coun. Doug Ford as saying his brother would be spending 30 days at an unspecified addictions facility. At a news conference, an emotional Doug Ford said facing your problems and deciding to seek help is not easy and that he loves and supports his brother and family. The scandal-plagued mayorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s latest woes began late Wednesday, April 30, with a trio of damaging newspaper reports that raised new questions about his conduct.

The Globe and Mail said a drug dealer had shown two of its reporters video of Ford allegedly smoking what was said to be crack in the basement of his sisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home early Saturday morning. The paper said it paid $10,000 for frame grabs showing Ford holding a copper pipe. American website Gawker.com, which first broke word of a video purportedly showing Ford smoking crack cocaine a year ago, published similar photos. Gawker said it had rejected a

Electoral reform bill debate gets ugly Cheap beer may get OTTAWA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Conservative bill to tighten up election laws is in the final stages of review at a House of Commons committee and things are getting ugly. After long hours of scrutiny of the Fair Elections Actâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s many clauses, only two technical amendments by the opposition had been approved by Thursday, May 1, and those Liberal measures only tweaked some wording. The only substantive amendments allowed to pass came from the government. Changes to the legislation have been fuelled from within the Conservative caucus.

New Democrat MP David Christophersonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frustration boiled over when the committee rejected a proposal to ensure voter-information cards are marked prominently to indicate they are not considered valid ID. The proposed act has eliminated the cards as a fall-back ID for voters who discover they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the right documents when they show up to cast a ballot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even vote for this, then the last bit of the fig leaf, as ugly as that image is, is gone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we know, and Canadians know, that this is all about trying to get the fix in for the Conservatives in every

way they can, and that voter suppression is alive and well in the government of Canada,â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; said Christopherson. The Conservatives countered that the chief electoral officer already has authority over the markings placed on voter identification cards and so the NDP amendment was not needed. The opposition has argued hundreds of thousands of voters, including First Nations, the homeless and students, will be disenfranchised by eliminating the use of the voter cards, as well as by new limitations on citizens vouching for the identity of others. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Canadian Press

more expensive

WINNIPEG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Some discount beer may soon cost a little more in Manitoba as the provincial liquor authority revamps its minimum-price rules. On June 2, Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries is doing away with a so-called social responsibility premium that is added to any beer with an alcohol content of seven per cent or more. The premium is a flat rate of $5.64 per litre and applies equally to beer with an alcohol level of seven per cent or more. A new sliding scale will be used to determine a minimum price â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the higher the alcohol content, the higher the price. A case of 24 bottles of six per cent beer, for example, will have to sell for at least $28.16, plus deposit and taxes. Liquor and lotteries spokeswoman Susan Harrison says the change will only affect a few â&#x20AC;&#x153;economyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;&#x2122; products, as most beer already costs more than the new minimums. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Canadian Press

GLOBAL VIEWS

MUSING ON ISRAEL AND THE ‘A’ WORD H ILLARY Clinton would never have used the word when she was U.S. secretary of state because she still has presidential ambitions. John Kerry, the current U.S. secretary of state, has no further ambitions in that direction, which may be why he dared to use the words “apartheid” and “Israel” in the same sentence. Or maybe he just didn’t realize the world would hear about it. Kerry spoke last week to a group of high-ranking officials from the U.S., Europe and Japan known as the Trilateral Commission about the failure of his year-long attempt to revive the peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. Somebody at the meeting secretly recorded his comments, which were published by the Daily Beast on Monday, April 28, and suddenly Kerry was in very hot water. What he said was the long-sought “twostate solution” was the only real alternative to a “unitary” Israeli-ruled state that included all the territory between the Jordan River and the Mediterranean Sea — and millions of Palestinians in the territories that have been under Israeli military occupation since 1967. Those Palestinians,

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH most of whom cannot remember a time when they did not live under Israeli control, have no political rights within Israel. The two-state solution, under negotiation off and on for the past 20 years, would give them a state of their own, but most people had despaired some time ago of getting Israel to agree to an independent Palestine. Kerry had not, so he was surprised and disappointed when his efforts came to naught. That was why he blurted out the truth American politicians are never supposed to acknowledge. He said that without the two-state solution, “a unitary [Israeli] state winds up either being an apartheid state with second-class [Palestinian] citizens — or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel to be a Jewish state.” It was clumsily phrased, but the basic idea is common in both Israeli and Palestinian

political discourse. Even if Israel never formally annexes the occupied territories, it has been building Jewish settlements all over them for decades and the Palestinian inhabitants are effectively controlled by the Israeli government. If this situation continues indefinitely, and the Palestinians must live out their lives as mere residents without no political rights, then they are in the same position as the black South Africans who lived all their lives under white rule without citizenship or the vote. That was the very essence of apartheid. Alternatively, of course, Israel might grant them citizenship and the vote. That’s what happened when apartheid ended in South Africa in 1994. But, there are already a great many Palestinians living under Israeli rule and their higher birth rate would make them a majority in that “unitary” Israel in less than a generation. That might or might not be a state where Jews are happy to live, but it would definitely no longer be a Jewish state. That’s all Kerry was saying: If you don’t accept the two-state

solution, then willy-nilly you get the one-state solution, in one of two flavours — an apartheid state in which the great majority of the actual citizens are Jews and the Palestinians have no voice in how they are ruled, or a more broadly defined state in which everybody is a citizen, but Jews are no longer the majority. Many Israel senior politicians who favour the two-state solution, including former prime ministers Ehud Olmert and Ehud Barak, have made exactly this point, even using that same inflammatory word

“apartheid” to underline the gravity of the choice. Senior Palestinian politicians talk about it all the time. However, senior American politicians are not allowed to talk like that about Israel. U.S. State Department officials tried to defend their boss’s comments for a few hours but, as the firestorm of protest by American Zionist organizations grew, the Barack Obama administration realized Kerry had to be forced to apologize for speaking the truth.

the technical definition of an apartheid state, either, because that would be a public-relations disaster. However, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu seems convinced he can avoid that outcome simply by hanging on to the occupied territories indefinitely, but never formally annexing them — and many Israelis agree with him. They might even be right, but John Kerry doesn’t think so. Or, at least, he didn’t until his own people worked him over a bit.

It’s not an apartheid state now because the non-citizen status of the Palestinians for the past 47 years is technically only temporary, pending the creation of their own state.

The Angel On Your Shoulder By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder.

Is depression common in your workplace? A MONG THE MOST frequent questions we get at the Canadian Mental Health Association are queries about depression. This is not surprising since many people are afflicted with low-mood symptoms at any given time. What may be a surprise to many of our readers is just how common it is — and we are only now beginning to see how widespread depression has become. According to a survey conducted by Depression Alliance in Britain of 1,200 workers in various professions like the Royal Mail and Barclays, one-third of employees had symptoms of stress, burnout and depression that made it difficult to cope. One-third. In your office, look to the person on the left and to the person on the right. One of you is in trouble and likely afraid to talk about it. Worse, the survey found more than 80 per cent of these people felt very lonely and isolated as a result of their depressive symptoms. The good news is that half of those people confided in a colleague and almost three-quarters of those who did said it actually helped them to feel a little better — and certainly less isolated. This has been a significant topic of concern to businesses who see a growing number of employees on disability as a result of depression and other mental illnesses. Many large corporations are instituting new policies and support programs to enable employees to come forward sooner and this will enable those companies to save millions of dollars a year. Depression is best treated when caught early. So, how can you tell if an employee or co-worker may be dealing with depression? Here are a few of the tell-tale signs: • Increasing frequency of sick days: Depressed people have more physical illnesses and symptoms than most. They are more likely to have colds, flu or other maladies and, sometimes, their mood is just too low to get moving. • Loss of motivation: Low motivation is often a companion of depression. These employees have lost their “spark” and their “enthusiasm” and often seem to be shadows of their former selves.

• Changes in social behaviour in the workplace: Depressed people show a change in their social behaviours. Ones who are sociable seem to withdraw from their friends or colleagues, while those who used to be unnoticed can suddenly become aggressive and outspoken. • Incomplete duties or tasks: Energy required to start and work on projects feels just out of reach for people with depression. Memory loss is common and analytical decisions are a major chore. • Someone who complains of fatigue and tiredness: If a co-worker seems to yawn incessantly, he or she may well be showing a sign of depression. • Increasing number of absent days for various reasons: If someone at work is taking more days off, they may be having great difficulty focusing and finding interest in life in general. If this is happening to you, it is important to seek some help and consider some short time away from work for intensive treatment. The longer you try to “work through” these issues, the worse it may become. Many employees “hang in there” because they think they can overcome it but, when they do not, the feelings of isolation and failure can mount dramatically and make work even more difficult. Talk about this where you work. Chances are, you recognize a coworker — or even yourself — in the description above. If you do, retweet this article to your followers and be encouraged that treatment and recovery from depression is common — even expected — and a return of energy may be closer than one thinks! Thank you for writing to us about depression in the workplace and, if you have a comment or question, you can reach us at Kamloops@ cmha.bc.ca or follow us on Twitter @CMHAKamloops. We always love to hear from you. Note: We recently had a reader comment that people who do not have computers may have trouble reaching us.

Welcome home, Don By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Don Hay will be the head coach of the 2014-2015 Kamloops Blazers. KTW learned on Thursday (May 1) Hay will take the reins, with the official announcement expected to be made today (May 2). Hay, 60, was an assistant coach with the Blue and Orange from 1986 to 1992 before he took over the head-coaching position, which he held from 1992 to 1995. He won three Memorial Cups in Kamloops — one as an assistant in 1992, when Tom Renney was in charge, and two as a head

coach, in 1994 and 1995. Hay’s first 144 wins as a head coach came in his stint behind the Blazers’ bench. The revered bench boss posted his 600th win as a WHL head coach when his Vancouver Giants thumped the hometown Blazers 6-2 at Interior Savings Centre on Jan. 17.

He is in the last year of his contract with the Giants. Kamloops has reportedly struck a deal to acquire his rights. The Kamloops product has coached Vancouver for nine seasons. He won a Memorial Cup with the Giants in 2007. Hay succeeds Guy Charron, who took over from Dave Hunchak partway through the 2013-2014 campaign. News of Hay’s hiring overshadows what was a very busy day for the Blazers at the WHL Bantam Draft in Calgary on Thursday. Turn to page A29 for a draft recap.

GE IS JUST a number for Gavin Dodd. Competing last month at the fourth B.C. Trampoline provincial trials in Port Coquitlam, the Kamloops Trampoline and Gymnastics Centre (KGTC) product finished atop the podium in both trampoline and doublemini trampoline — another handful of gold medals to add to an already successful season. What makes Gavin’s

performance this year so astounding is he’s just 10, a Grade 5 student at Juniper Ridge elementary, competing against athletes as much as eight years his senior. Gavin was competing in the national 18-and-under stream in Port Coquitlam. He also grabbed gold in tumbling, in which he competes at the provincial level. With his first season in the national stream coming to a close, Gavin is heading to Ottawa at the end of May to compete in the national championships,

where he will again be one of the youngest athletes on hand. “I don’t really find them as much older. I don’t think of it that way,” Gavin told KTW at the KGTC, where he trains 14 hours a week. “I kind of just think of them as all national athletes,” he continued, though he admitted, “It was kind of cool to win against some of the other older kids.” Gavin said his first season in the national stream has been filled with a lot of lessons — he’s learning

what sets a good routine apart from a bad one and what he needs to do to consistently compete at that level. He’s learned some of those lessons by virtue of being in an elite program. Regular training and working with, and against, stronger athletes has helped him hone his craft. The rest, Gavin said, is from the motivation he finds in watching other athletes compete.

This photo was taken at the 2013 Kamloops Ranch Camp, a mountain-biking camp organized by Lorraine Blancher, a pro rider who loves the Kamloops Bike Ranch. This year’s camp runs on May 10 and May 11. Danielle Baker photo

Lorraine Blancher is looking to follow up with another successful Kamloops Ranch Camp. The mountain-biking camp runs on Saturday, May 10, and Sunday, May 11, at the Kamloops Bike Ranch (KBR). Blancher is bringing a host of professional coaches — including Chris Kovarik, Claire Buchar, Dylan Sherrard, Katrina Strand, Kirt Voreis and Lindsey Voreis — to the event, which in 2013 attracted about 30 female riders from the Pacific Northwest to the Tournament Capital. This year, the camp is co-ed.

The KBR facility has made it easy for Blancher to attract top-quality professional coaches. There is expected to be about one coach for every five camp participants. “It sets a standard for amazing community bike parks and I hope more cities embrace the concept,” said Blancher, who lives in Revelstoke. “It’s the high caliber of venue that’s attracting the level of coaches.” Last year’s camp received media attention from bikemag. com, freehubmag.com

and pinkbike.com. There will be an informational session about bike setup at the Bicycle Cafe on Friday, May 9. That gets underway at 6 p.m. On Saturday and Sunday, coaches and camp members gather at the top of the KBR each morning to stretch before a full day of riding. Blancher plans to keep the number of camp participants to about 35. To register, call Blancher at 1-250-828-2453 or go online to karelo.com. The camp costs $345.

4th Annual

Hot Dog Sale!

Kamloops selects blue-liner third overall By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

With the highest selection in franchise history, the Kamloops Blazers elected to shore up their back end, selecting defenceman Nolan Kneen of the North Shore Winter Club Winterhawks third overall in the 2014 Western Hockey League bantam draft in Calgary on Thursday, May 1. Kneen played 20132014 with NWSC and stands 5-foot-11, 165 pounds. In 69 games with the Winterhawks this season, the assistant captain netted 60 points, including 22 goals. “It’s very exciting,” Kneen told KTW from his home in North Vancouver, where he watched the draft with friends, family and teammates. “I used to live in Merritt, so I used to go up there all the time . . . I like it. I have some friends up there. It’s a nice city.” For the full list of Blazer draftees, turn to page A31. Kneen describes him-

self as a 200-foot player who likes to take the body and can compete down low in the corners. He told KTW he wasn’t expecting to be selected as high as he was, but is overjoyed to be coming to the River City. “We felt he was the best defenceman available,” said Matt Recchi, director of player personnel for the Kamloops Blazers. “We felt we needed to draft a defenceman and it was a tough choice between a defenceman and some forwards that were available, but any time you can draft the best defenceman available, I think you’ve got to do it.” Recchi described Kneen as a good allaround defender who knows how to win and has good mobility, size and puck moving ability. He scored the game-winning goal in the Western Canadian Bantam Championship earlier this year, a double-overtime marker against the Lloydminster Heat. Kneen wasn’t the only NSWC product

to be selected by the Blazers. With their secondround pick, 24th overall, the Blazers went back to the Winterhawks and selected Kneen’s defensive partner, Conner McDonald. McDonald stands 5-foot-10 and weighs 170 pounds. “When he was there, we just felt it was a real good fit to keep these two guys together,” Recchi said. “They played together all year, for the most part, and they were pretty dynamic two players there.” While the Blazers selected Kneen, they passed over local product Brendan Semchuk. The Kamloops Minor Hockey Association product played his bantam hockey for the Jardine Blazers and had 77 points, including 45 goals, in 51 games this season. “I’ve just been waiting anxiously, waiting for my name to be picked and it was a relief going to Vancouver, since it’s a great organization and close to home,” Semchuk told KTW.

He said he hopes he has the opportunity down the road to make the Blazers regret passing on him. “It’s always in the back of my head,” Semchuk said. “I want to prove the people who didn’t take me wrong, but also I’m more than happy to be with Vancouver.” The Blazers also made some noise on the trade front, dealing 20-year-old Matt Bellerive to the Vancouver Giants in exchange for a sixthround pick in 2014 and a fourth-round pick in 2015. Bonner also traded away the first of the Blazers’ third-round picks, acquiring 20-yearold defenceman Brady Gaudet from the Red Deer Rebels. Gaudet played 117 games with the Blazers between 2010 and 2012, racking up seven goals and 34 points. Seven Kamloopsbased players were picked in the draft, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com for details.

“A lot of them inspire me to learn more and do more,” he said. “It’s really cool to watch some of the people I compete against. “I look up to Mario and Emily [fellow KGTC athletes Bruno and Schmidt],” Dodd continued. “I look up to some of the people from different clubs who have won things like worlds and have won Indos [Indo Pacific Championships] and some of them could be going off to the Olympics.” Dodd started at the lowest level of the provincial stream in trampoline five years ago, but has progressed quickly. His coach, Gail Salmon, said Dodd is able to pick up skills often just by watching others do them first. His progression in the sport has been limited only by his age, with athletes needing to be of a certain age before they can advance to the next stream. Those restrictions, which kept him from entering the national stream until he turned 10, will keep him where he is for the

next three seasons, until he’s 13. From there, he will have the opportunity to compete in Espoir (where Schmidt competes), junior (where Bruno competes) and senior levels. “We’ve been coaching him since he was about five — and he’s now 10 — and we always knew he had a natural ability of knowing where he’s at in the air,” Salmon said. “He’s kind of got a talent that he can see something and he can just do it. “He works really hard, too. It’s not just that. He has great parents. He’s just got what it takes, that’s all there is to it. “The only ones that are ahead of him — but that’s just because they have been in the program and are older — the only ones that are ahead of him right now are Mario and Emily,” she continued. Dodd has a number of competitions on his radar in the

next few months, including the national championships and the Western Canadian championships in Calgary, where he will compete in tumbling. He’s the top provincial athlete in tumbling in B.C. His mentors will also have a packed competition schedule. Bruno scored high enough this season to qualify for the Indo Pacific Championships — he is waiting to hear if he has been selected to be a part of Canada’s team. Earlier this season, at Elite Canada, he finished fifth in the junior stream. Schmidt is hoping to attend World Age Groups Nationals in Daytona Beach, but will have to wait until Canada Cup in July to find out if she qualifies. Both Schmidt and Bruno will join Dodd, Jaxson Coull and Rachel Beauchamp at the Canadian national championships. “All three of them are very talented athletes,” Salmon said. “We’re really starting to build our program and just get it going to where we want it to be.”

The rise of Kendall Fitzgerald Sister Gunter joins the WolfPack TRU has added another Gunter to the WolfPack. Carly Gunter, younger sister of menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball star Brad Gunter, has committed to playing with the WolfPack womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball team for the

By Adam Williams STAFF REPORTER adam@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kendall Fitzgerald hoped she would get a call. The midget A Kamloops Mystixs forward was by no means certain she would be named to a team for the 2014 female under-18 B.C. Cup, but she was hoping. So, when B.C. Hockey contacted Fitzgerald, informing her of her spot on Team Inferno, she was excited. The forward had played on similar teams in the past â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she was on Team Okanagan as an U16 player and played in the B.C. Winter games in 2012 and the U16 B.C. Cup in 2013 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but this was the next level. Even better, this time around her team won the championship. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was pretty cool,â&#x20AC;? the 16-year-old told KTW. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I mean, all the teams there are really closely matched. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re with the top 80 players in the province, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be good competition. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really cool to be able to pull out the win and be part of that team.â&#x20AC;? Fitzgeraldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Team Inferno defeated Team Thunder 1-0 in a nailbiter of a gold medal game on Sunday, April 27. Team Inferno was

2014-2015 season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I decided on TRU because I really like the school and the campus,â&#x20AC;? Gunter said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted to go to a university and challenge myself both in academics and athletics.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;TRU has a strong business program and it will be nice to go to the same school as Brad.â&#x20AC;? The 5-foot-8 Gunter is a setter and is graduating from Courtenayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Georges P. Vanier secondary in June.

Kendall Fitzgerald, captain of the midget A Kamloops Mystixs, jostles for position in front of the net. She won gold with Team Inferno at the female under-18 B.C. Cup.

3-1 in the B.C. Cup, an invitational jamboree that saw the players divided among four teams. Fitzgerald wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only girl from the Kamloops area to attend the tournament. The Mystixsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; captain was joined by goaltender Emma Gottfriedson of the B.C. female midget AAA leagueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Thompson Okanagan Rockets. Gottfriedson played for Team Stars, which finished the weekend with a 1-3 record. Though Fitzgerald finished the tournament without registering any points, she was pleased with her play in Salmon Arm. She told KTW she felt better as the tournament progressed, with the pace of play taking some time to

get used to. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now hoping she did done enough to be given the opportunity to attend the tournament again in the future â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as a 16 year old, she was one of the younger players in the U18 jamboree. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It made me realize that thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably a lot more that I can improve on,â&#x20AC;? Fitzgerald said. She made note of the time her fellow competitors put into training and the things she needs to do in order to get to the next level. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I might have to up my training a little,â&#x20AC;? she said. Fitzgerald isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just hoping to return to the B.C. Cup in 2015 though. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eagerly awaiting another call from B.C. Hockey, to see if she will be attending the U18 provincial

camp later this month. The camp, which will take place in Lake Cowichan from May 16 to May 19, is the next step in the formation of Team B.C., which will represent the province in the 2015 Canada Winter Games. For the Valleyview secondary school student, making Team B.C. would be the next step in a progression that she hopes will land her on the ice for a college or university club one day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice because now I have a better understanding of the commitment and dedication and everything that it takes,â&#x20AC;? she said of the B.C. Cup. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, even if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not successful this year, then I still have another year to prepare and hopefully see what happens next year.â&#x20AC;?

Hanes hopes to fill the net with WolfPack The TRU WolfPack hockey team added a little Western Hockey League experience today, as the team announced the signing of forward Ryan Hanes. Hanes, who played 224 regular-season games in the WHL with the Kamloops Blazers and Prince George Cougars, will join the club for the 2014-2015 season. “I had to change my game a lot after minor hockey,” Hanes said in a news release. “I was put on the third or fourth line and became a grinder. “I feel coming into the BCIHL, I hope to be able to regain that scoring touch.”

TOURNAMENT CAPITAL SPORTS

The 5-foot-10 forward had 51 points in his WHL career, including 23 goals. “I am excited to be taking advantage of the WHL education fund and to stay at home and go to TRU is a bonus,” Hanes said. “I took a year off and was missing hockey. Joining the WolfPack and getting an education while playing seems like the ideal fit.”

Countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corb Lund has Cabin Fever Lund and Hurtinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Albertans stopping in Kamloops on cross-Canada tour By Cam Fortems STAFF REPORTER cam@kamloopsthisweek.com

C

ORB LUND AND THE Hurtinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Albertans donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a playlist on this tour. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got seven records and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been together for 10 years,â&#x20AC;? said Lund in an interview from Barrie, Ont. But, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bother repeatedly shouting out for songs when Lund and his band play the Sagebrush Theatre on Monday, May 12, as part of a crossCanada tour that includes a diversion to a country-music festival in the appropriately named Indio, Calif. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Normally, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do it that way,â&#x20AC;? said the Canadian Country Music Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots artist of the year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have been Tweeting at me and Facebooking. Someone is compiling it for me.â&#x20AC;? And, if a booze-fueled fan near the front is shouting for a particular song, Lund said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inevitably the paean to Alberta gumbo â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Truck Got Stuck, featuring Ford, Dodge, Chevy, Hutterites and genetically modified canola seed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my Copperhead Road,â&#x20AC;? he laughed, alluding to venerated roots rocker Steve Earlâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s megahit. Lundâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most recent release is Cabin Fever, released on New West Records, also home to roots and country legends ranging from Dwight Yoakam and Earle to the Flatlanders. His roots-cred also got him into Sun Studio in Nashville, an official U.S. landmark where Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash once played. Lund and his three-piece band Hurtinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Albertans recorded a live record at Sun Studio in June last year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; not live as in audience, but live as in â&#x20AC;&#x153;four of us in a roomâ&#x20AC;? with no overdubs or studio tricks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very historic, very cool,â&#x20AC;? Lund said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really changed it and made it into Disneyland. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a dingy room.â&#x20AC;?

TICKET INFORMATION

WHO: Corb Lund and the Hurtinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Albertans. WHERE: Sagebrush Theatre, 1300Ninth Ave. WHEN: Monday, May 12. MORE INFO: corblund.com. TICKETS: $49.50 from Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250374-5483 or kamloopslive.ca.

As part of the recording, Country Music Television shot a video documentary. The album is slated to be released in June. Lund has also started writing a new album for release next year. He wrote the 2012 album Cabin Fever from an isolated cabin he built out of logs an hour out of Edmonton. This time, some of the writing came out of Berlin, where he spent one month writing songs and another month touring. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll also write again at his cabin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half sensory overload, half isolation,â&#x20AC;? he said of his writing environments. Of course, his Mein Deutsches Mottorad (My German Motorcycle) was often requested in Germany. But, Lund said, some were unhappy that title encompassed the extent of his German. And, yes, he has two BMWs at home in Alberta, including a 1970sera R75/5. Lund is familiar to Kamloops and said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking forward to coming back to the Interior. His recent dates in the past decade have been eventful musically, but lacked the drama of a riot that occurred in the former Oddfellows Hall when Lund was with the hardrock band The Smalls. Tickets are $49.50 and can be purchased from Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483 or at kamloopslive.ca.

Kamloops business owner Lisa Holzman survived the Dragons’ Den. Dave Eagles/ KTW

BUSINESS IS BREWING By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

Lisa Holzman may have felt differently about her appearance on the Dragons’ Den if Kevin O’Leary was still on the show. “The new dragon, he’s funny. He’s really sassy,” said the Kamloops barber-shop owner. “He’s completely different — he’s not mean, he’s just sarcastic.” The owner of Central Barber Shop on Lansdowne Street recently returned from Toronto after filming for CBC’s investment-pitch reality television show. Holzman flew there with her boyfriend after successfully making her way through auditions in Abbotsford. When she arrived on set, she said she wasn’t nervous, and it wasn’t just because O’Leary was missing from the panel, having left the show in March, along with fellow dragon Bruce Croxon. Holzman was rushed — pushed ahead in the cue, touring the studio,

being paired with a producer, prepping and pitching her idea. “I didn’t have time to think about it,” she said. Holzman was also prepared, having started planning eight years ago. “I was like, ‘I’m going to think something up,’” she said, adding she’s always inventing “stupid little things.” She wouldn’t talk about her product and could not divulge whether the dragons accepted her deal, having signed a confidentiality agreement with the show. She did, however, hint that her original contraption is designed for beer. “I’m only allowed to say that I participated and that it went well,” she said, adding that her first-to-market product idea can still be stolen. In preparing for the show, she learned that beer companies are harsh critics, but she’d do it again. “If I had a product that was in the stage that was ready to go,” she said. “I had really valuable feedback.”

Free comics for all Comic-Con fans rejoice, mini event By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER jessica@kamloopsthisweek.com

If it’s been a while since you caught up with Archie and the old gang, mark Saturday, May 4, on your calendar. The industry-wide Free Comic Book Day returns for the annual comic-book blit — and a downtown store is amping up with some advice for those who plan on coming out for the event. “The early bird gets the worm,” said Nick Klie, manager at High Octane Comics. Comic-book companies release promotional comics to be given out by stores everywhere for free every May. Klie called the event a celebration of comic books, prominent throughout North America, featuring about 50 different titles, specially created for the annual event. Some of the free comic-book titles include: Archie, the Justice League, Megaman, Streetfighter,

Spongebob Squarepants, Hello Kitty, the Simpsons, the Smurfs, Buck Rogers, the Power Rangers, the Tick and more. “It’s a big tradition in the comicbook industry now,” Klie said. In his nine years at the store, Klie has seen people get dressed up for the occasion — and he expects to see some Star Wars-themed outfits this year. “People go all out. It really is a fun day,” he said. But, the event isn’t just geared to current comic-book fans. “It’s to introduce new readers, it’s to reward current readers — it’s for everybody,” he said. “There’s a wide variety of titles for children and adults.” Readers will have the opportunity to pick up a couple of different free issues each from High Octane Comics, 250 Third Ave., from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. The store will hold a sale in conjunction with the event. “It’s just a big day to celebrate comic books,” Klie said.

returns to library for teens in May

Comic-Con comes back to the TNRD library on Saturday May 10, at 2 p.m. This is the second year the Thompson-Nicola Regional District has held the event, open to teens ages 13 to 18. It features special appearances from manga artist Nina Matsumoto (Space Coyote) and John Delaney of Bongo Comics, who will be judges for the event’s art contest.

Artists are encouraged to create original two-dimensional art in comic or manga style and submit them at the children’s desk at the Kamloops Library by Wednesday, May 7, at 5 p.m. Works should be no larger than 18 inches by 24 inches. For more information, email Susan McCowan, head of children’s services, at smccowan@tnrd.ca or call 250-372-5145.

Notes On: The Riss Band By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

• Who: Riss Wiebe on guitars, Lisa Wiebe on drums and both handling vocals. • What: The Riss Band was formed late in 2012. The husband and wife duo does mainly its own work. Early last year, the band released its first recording, Nashville Trailer Park and, last month, released Wristbands & Watches. The couple strives to be 100 per cent independent rock and roll, recording, mixing and mastering their own songs, doing their own artwork and shooting and editing its videos. Riss has been in a few bands over the years, including Mechanized Death, The Narrow Way and, more recently, Bonskaan. Lisa was an accomplished pianist prior to The Riss Band. She had only been playing the drums two months before the band recorded Nashville Trailer Park. • Where and When: The band is in rehearsal mode right now, working with guitarist Greg Chartrand for upcoming live shows. Bass players are also being auditioned — and the couple welcome hearing from any more who are interested — and they’re in the midst of booking a backyard summer tour. You’ll also find the band at this year’s Ribfest at Riverside Park. Check out the band’s website for more

Memories Welcome HAZEL GRACE

information about upcoming shows and how to book the couple — they say no venue or back yard is too small for their music. • Why: Riss explains: “If you enjoy rock and roll with catchy riffs and endless hooks you will enjoy The Riss Band. We

&

are not trying to re-invent the wheel by any stretch. We just want to make music we like and, if other people like it, that’s just gravy on top.” • How: rissband.com, facebook.com/ TheRissBand, reverbnation.com/therissband, youtube.com/user/therissband.

TRAVELWRITERSTALES.COM editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T’S MORE THAN THE ROOM’S COOL TEMPERATURE THAT SENDS CHILLS DOWN MY SPINE. The hull of the “Ancient Galilee Boat” my husband Rick and I are gazing upon was the type of boat used by fishermen and for ferrying people and goods on the Sea of Galilee during the time Jesus preached along these shores — which earned it the appellation “Jesus boat.” It is mind-boggling as to how this wooden vessel, or most of it, survived being buried beneath the sea for 2000 years. The top of this 8.2-metre-long boat is missing due to being exposed to Galilee’s sweet water (as it is actually a lake), whereas the bottom is believed to have been instantaneously engulfed in a preserving blanket of thick mud. Thus, saved from decomposition is a shell 2.3 metres in breadth and maximum height of 1.2 metres. It once flaunted a sail to catch the winds, and capacity enough for four oarsmen, a helmsman and a dozen passengers — or a substantial catch of fish. It now rests on an iron frame within Yigal Allon Centre Museum, which edges the Ginosar Kibbutz communal farm on the sea’s northwestern shores where it was discovered. Imagine the stir in 1986 when, during a severe drought that lowered the sea’s waters, Moshe and Yuval, fishermen brothers from this kibbutz, found a row of wood prongs sticking out of the mud. Luckily, they were also amateur archaeologists and alerted the Antiquities Authority, which brought an archaeological excavation team of the highest calibre to the site. It took 11 days of labour to rescue this fragile shell. “A platform was suspended above the vessel for excavators to lie on while removing mud, thus minimizing handling,” says the museum’s expert Marina. “Continually spraying water on exposed wood kept it from drying too rapidly and shrinking.” The freed hull was cocooned in fibreglass and polyurethane foam to once again float on Galilee, this time to a specially designed conservation facility. A seven-year-long stay in a tank of solutions was undertaken to replace the water in the soggy wood with wax, thus keeping its form and preventing infestation of larvae hatching from two-millennium-old eggs. Carbon-14 tests confirm the boat was constructed and used between 100 BCE and 70 CE, leaving me to wonder what circumstance ended its use. Perhaps it was sunk in the Jewish revolt against the Romans in 67 CE. Or, was it simply swallowed by mud during a violent storm? “The boat, made mostly of cedar and oak, was repaired over its lifetime with bits and plugs of ten other woods,” says Marina, “some repairs more professional than others.” This gives a very human dimension to its story, with the added possibility of Jesus seeing it on the lake or leaning against it while talking to its owner — or, perchance it was the boat He sailed in with his disciples. It is enough to know this craft was raised from the mud after 2,000 years to be relished by ours and future generations. Venturing farther north along the shores of Galilee, we

The Monastery of the Twelve Apostles (left) is a mustsee on any trip to Israel. The structure was built in 1025 over the ruins of a previous church. Special tanks and treatment were required to restore the ancient Galilee boat known as the Jesus boat (below), to replace water in the wood with wax, a necessary step to preserve the vehicle’s shape and integrity. It can be found at the Yigal Allon Centre Museum on the northwestern shore of the sea. Rick Butler photos

come to Capernaum. Now predominantly archaeological ruins, at the time Jesus came from Nazareth it was a fishing village. Gospels relate it was in Capernaum that Jesus recruited four fishermen apostles — Peter, James, Andrew and John — and where He performed many miracles. The ruins of the fourth-century synagogue we stand in is built atop the synagogue where Jesus taught. Nearby is the modern octagonal church built in 1990 over a fifth-century church which, in turn, was constructed over the site of St. Peter’s traditional house — a glass floor allows us to view the stone ruins of his home. Around these structures are remnants of Roman houses, attesting to its being a prosperous town for merchants and farmers as well as fishermen. Farther along, on a slight rise before the water’s edge, is the Monastery of the Twelve Apostles, built in 1025 over the ruins of a previous church. The iconography on the inside is stunning, depicting scenes from gospels, such as Jesus calming the storm and the miracle of the loaves and fishes. Outside again, we follow a path to the sea where, sitting on rocks with only the sounds of lapping waves and songbirds in treetops, we ponder how Jesus may have sat in this very spot. We leave with a heady feeling at having walked the shores of Galilee, through ruins and relics steeped in historic events and biblical passages as inextricably linked as threads in a bolt of multi-coloured cloth.

LOCAL NEWS

New branch manager at Valley First Valley First Credit Union has appointed a new branch manager at its RiverBend location in Brocklehurst — longtime Kamloops resident and veteran financial-services leader Charla Johnstone. Johnstone brings 15 years of financial services industry and leadership experience to Valley First. During her career, she has served in a variety of increasingly

senior roles in retail and commercial banking. Johnstone has developed a strong reputation for her coaching and business development skills, valuable assets as Valley First’s RiverBend branch grows. “I’m truly excited to be joining the Valley First team,” Johnstone said. “I’ve been in the financial-services industry for many years and I know Valley First has a

fantastic reputation for member service as well as serving its communities. “The opportunity to lead a new branch is one I couldn’t pass up. Kamloops is a growing, vibrant city and looking forward to helping Valley First firmly establish itself on the North Shore. RiverBend is a young branch, a little over a year old, so there is plenty of potential all around us.

NOW HIRING

GET WELDED TO A LASTING CAREER Job opportunities are plentiful, but Canada is facing a shortage of highly trained welders. This skilled trade is critical for the success of many major development projects across the country and welders are in high-demand to apply their skills to everything from the pacemakers that people have, to the cars they drive, to the airplanes they fly in, to the bridges they go over. Nothing would be achieved without welders. In fact, did you know the welding industry contributes over $5 billion to the Canadian economy and employs more than 300,000 individuals? But, since the average age for most skilled positions is approaching 60, before long an alarming shortage of manpower is anticipated. “Given the shortage of trained welders in

HELP WANTED

Canada, we were extremely pleased to see that there are many emerging programs to support the skilled trades,” said Dan Tadic, executive director of the Canadian Welding Association. He noted it is critical for all levels of government, industry and training associations to work together in order to ensure the safety and integrity of Canadian infrastructure. According to a survey by the Canadian Welding Bureau, nearly all Canadians feel that expert industry approval “is important” when considering the safety of a product — and 76 per cent view it as “very important.” A lack of skilled welders, Tadic said, increases the risk he work may not be as reliable as it has been in the past.
