Share your vision with your business association Located up the stairs above Victoria Street in a humble office is the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association. Known as the KCBIA or simply Downtown Kamloops, the association was formed to help promote business growth and economic development in a format that will make the central business area of Kamloops a better place to visit, live and work. This among other things includes the marketing of Downtown Kamloops and hosting a wide variety of events. The KCBIA already hosts and plans the annual Santa Claus Parade, Spring Arts Festival, Downtown Merchant’s Market, Lights in the Night Christmas Party, Live at Lunch and much more. “One the goals of the KCBIA is to help our businesses be successful,” explains association general manager Gay Pooler. “We are in the midst of planning next year’s agenda, calendar and putting together our marketing plan and we want to know what is and is not working for our businesses. It is very important to us.” With that being said, the KCBIA is organizing a Marketing Visioning Session which is being co-hosted by Hotel 540 on their new Terrace Lounge. They are asking all area business representatives, especially retail and restaurants to come and share their thoughts on what events

KCBIA visionaries Tanya Orozco and Gay Pooler of the KCBIA, along with Tammy Campbell, business and client services manager for the City of Kamloops, prepare for the upcoming Marketing and Visioning Session.

and marketing is working for them. “We are making plans for 2014 and beyond,” continues Gay. “We want you to come and take your seat at the table.” Some of the discussion will revolve around events; both revising current events and adding new ones as well as programming like Live at Lunch, marketing, advertising, attracting and retaining retail business and creating a vibrant and happening downtown. They

want to know what is currently working for businesses and what roadblocks they are facing. They are also open to hear and discuss other great ideas to add to the plan. The Marketing Visioning session is happening Tuesday, September 24 at 5:30pm at the Hotel 540 Terrace Lounge. All visitors will be treated to an informative Roger Brooks webinar on how to bring Downtown to life, roundtable discussion and social hour. All guests

Bill Bissett to read at TRU

Sensible signing

(L-R) Carl Anderson and Gyula Dagger collect signatures for their petition to decriminalize marijuana outside of the Desert Hemp Hut on 4th Avenue. Carl plans on spending the next 87 days petitioning for the cause. If you would like to find out more information on changing the marijuana laws in B.C. visit SensibleBC.ca or email info@sensiblebc.ca.

Members of the public have two opportunities to experience a reading, talk and book signing by poet, artist, and 2008 TRU honorary doctorate recipient Bill Bissett. Winner of the 2007 George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award, Bissett is the author of over seventy books of poetry and two novels, as well as children’s books. On Wednesday, September 25 from 2:30 to 3:30pm in room 2472 of TRU’s Old Main building, Bissett will read some of his work of the 1970s and 1980s, as well as more current work. This presentation is sponsored by the Writers Union of Canada, the Canada Council, and TRU’s English and Modern Languages Department. Please contact Ginny Ratsoy (gratsoy@tru.ca) if you require further information. On Thursday, September 26 at 1:00pm, Bissett will read from his

current work at Chapters Indigo on Hillside Drive. These are opportunities to hear the man James Reaney called “a one-man culture” and “ a lesson to us all” share his wit and wisdom, and perhaps even discover why Margaret Atwood said, “Bill Bissett is my astral twin.”

reach their potential, both as individuals and citizens. “There was a recent study done by the Boston Consulting Group that shows that for every $1 given to Big Brothers and Big Sisters, $18 is delivered back to society through a number of different ways,” shares Matt, a Big Brother himself. “The kids who are in our programs end up getting higher-paying jobs, which means they end up paying more taxes. They end up doing more volunteer work, giving more to charities, and being better financial planners. And it keeps them out of trouble, meaning a lower crime rate and less burden on the criminal jus-

tice system.” The band is also hosting a music workshop for participants of the program sometime in October. For details or tickets for either event, contact Matthew by email at info@vandamsel.com, by phone at (250) 574-1445 or stop by the Big Brothers Big Sisters office at 821 Seymour Street. To keep up to date with all of their gigs and their progress in the Peak Performance Project, visit vandamsel.com or peakperformanceproject.com. The PEAK Performance Project is a seven-year, $5.29 million contest open to all musicians in British Columbia.

Local band uses big opportunity to host big fundraiser Local indie-rock band Van Damsel has earned a place among the finalists in the fifth year of the Peak Performance Project, which chooses 20 of BC’s best in musical talent to benefit from mentorships from some of the music industry’s top professionals and performers. Finalists receive an intensive, one-week training program in the music business, live performance, songwriting, marketing and promotion. The project has seen past winners like We Are the City, Kyprios and Current Swell go from relative obscurity to widespread recognition. Bringing the kind of exposure money can’t buy and a potential $102,700 prize, these boys are taking the opportunity seriously. “It’s pretty surreal,” says lead vocalist Sebastien Ste. Marie of being chosen to compete in the project created by 102.7 The PEAK radio and Music BC, admitting, “I knew it was a lot of work (making it in the music industry) but I didn’t know it would be this much.” Besides attending the weeklong industry ‘boot-camp’ this summer, each of the 20 competitors must complete several challenges, from merchandising to media, including a charity challenge. “The Peak Performance Project is all about mentorship. We chose to raise money and awareness for Big Brothers Big Sisters, which also believes in mentorship,” says drummer Matthew Barron, who is the Mentorship Coordinator at BBBS

of Kamloops by day. “I was really happy to be able to promote our agency with the project. At first I worried it was a conflict of interest, but our mentors at Peak thought it was a perfect fit.” The band has two events planned for the agency. The first will be a dinner at Sports Central Lounge on Wednesday, September 25, with live acoustic performances from Nick & Mohsin and Van Damsel’s own Sebastien Ste. Marie. The second is an all-ages show called Bands Give Back featuring Van Damsel themselves alongside Kelowna’s Fields of Green, who have competed in the project in the past, and local band Earthea. The show will be at the Sagebrush Theatre on Sunday, September 29 with all proceeds going directly to BBBS for their programs.  Bands Give Back was the Van Damsel’s chance to say a huge ‘thank you’ for all of the hometown support that has helped propel them this far. “We called it that because want to give back to the community that supports us, from writing our first demo with Mike Turner, winning Battle of the Bands, having the community come out and support us at shows, all of that,” says Matt. “This felt like the best way to do that. And, we really believe in Big Brothers Big Sisters.” As a child and youth mentoring charity, BBBS facilitates lifechanging relationships that inspire and empower children and youth to

Growth at Kamloops Foundation adds up to two new staff members The Kamloops Foundation has recently hired two new staff to move their organization forward toward their 30th year of operation in 2014. “I am delighted that we were able to find talented and gifted staff members that will help advance the mission of the Kamloops Foundation,” says Foundation president Greg Reid of the new staff members. “Nancy Plett has joined our organization as the Fund Development Officer and Shona Moore as our Office Administrator.” Nancy has over 25 years experience working with government and non-profit organizations in the area of resource development, public relations and project management. Formally from the Lower Mainland, Nancy moved to Kamloops in 2001. Her diverse background includes working with the TRU Alumni Association, the Canadian Cancer Society, the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops, the Certified Organic Association of BC, and United Way of the Lower Mainland. “What excites me about the Kamloops Foundation is the direct connection donors have to addressing the changing needs in their community. By donating today, people can have such a huge impact on enhancing the vitality

of their communities for future generations,” says Nancy. Shona Moore has lived in Kamloops since 1997 and brings 15 years of office administration experience to the Foundation. She has worked at both TRU and through federal government contracts. She has a Social Work Degree and in-depth knowledge of resources in Kamloops and surrounding areas. “I am excited to be part of a Foundation that has made such positive contributions to our community and look forward to assisting in the continued expansion of this

organization,” adds Shona. The Kamloops Foundation is dedicated to improving the quality of life in the Thompson, Nicola and South Cariboo regions. With over $4 million in endowed funds, the Foundation provides in excess of $225,000 in grants and scholarships to both organizations and individuals. To learn more about the Kamloops Foundation and how to set up an endowment fund or how to apply for funding, contact Nancy Plett at 250-434-6995 or visit their website at kamloopsfoundation.com.

25 years of original art at the Kamloops Art Gallery The Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG) is celebrating its 25th anniversary of the Original Art Auction. Over the years they have showcased the work of local, regional and national artists and raised operating funds for the Gallery. Local artists and artists from around BC as well as several businesses from BC and Alberta have donated several items to be auctioned off at this event. KAG is hoping to raise $25,000 to support activities at the Gallery. Guests can participate and show their support in two ways. First, a seven-course gourmet dinner held at Hotel 540 on their new terrace. Here, guests will also have the option to have first biding on three exclusive art auction pieces. Following the dinner, guests can come back to the Gallery for the live, silent auction and sealed bid auction as well as special anniversary celebrations. The second option for guests is to opt to only attend the auction and anniversary celebrations. Here guests will enjoy live jazz entertainment, great snacks, a cash bar and the opportunity to bid on original works of art and special packages.

Judy Basso, fundraising event coordinator for the Kamloops Art Gallery, stands with some of the beautiful art up for auction at the 25th Original Art Auction and dinner on Saturday, October 5 from 7:30-10:00pm.

North vs South: Lawn bowlers square off at year end event McArthur Park Lawn Bowling is finishing off this season in fine style with tournaments, awards and sport recognition. The members have been visiting Vernon, Kelowna, Vancouver and Regina showing their prowess and honing their skills. They are very proud that members of their very young club is venturing forth and bringing recognition to themselves and the club. One of the clubs more recent events was their invitation to introduce lawn bowling at Overlander Days at McDonald park. Everyone got in the act and had a chance to try the sport, including mascots and dignitaries. A group from the Boys and Girls Club also came out and spent a day trying the sport. Many of the McArthur Park Lawn Bowling members volunteered for the BC Senior Games here to assist various sports and the organizers.

Part of the season wrap-up will include a Novice Lawn Bowling Tournament with new bowlers on September 21 and concludes with the Annual Kamloops Interclub Tournament at Riverside Lawn Bowling Club on September 28 for a friendly rivalry. It will be time to put the greens to “bed” for the winter with special fall grooming, which is assisted by all members, and wait patiently for spring to begin another season If you are interested in joining the McArthur Park Lawn Bowling Club, join them Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings next year with free instruction in April and May.

OPEN SEASON

From left: Garret Smith as Freddie Seven Horses, Roseanne Supernault as Izzy and Dakota Hebert as Dreary in Western Canada Theatre’s Dreary and Izzy, playing until September 28 at the Pavilion Theatre. For tickets and info go to kamloopslive.ca .

Thirteen ambitious oil portraits of remarkable Kamloops citizens either born in Kamloops or achieved notoriety here, have been painted by artist Mairi Budreau, who reveals more than a likeness of these familiar personalities. In an installment entitled Walks of Life, the works are available to view in the KAC Main Gallery at the Old Courthouse from October 5 to 26. Mairi Budreau originated the “significant people idea” in early 2012 to gain experience in portrait painting and to acknowledge the achievements of remarkable Kamloops residents. Each painting’s progress is recorded on her blog at budreau.ca and caught the attention of Agora Gallery in Chelsea, New York last August, where they were subsequently shown for a period over this past year. Mairi is from southern Ontario but has lived in BC since 1991 and in Kamloops since 2005. She is a self-taught artist. In 2004 Budreau received awards in photography and in 2010 and 2012 for her drawings. She is a member of the Federation of Canadian Artists,

KAC, KAG, CARFAC. After traveling to New York state, Walks of Life will be on exhibit for local audiences in the KAC Main Gallery from October 5 to 26, with an opening reception on Saturday, October 5 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. Gallery hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10:00am to 5:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am to 4:00pm.

Story from the school paper John wrote an article in the school paper about how this chemical, dihydrogenoxide, has killed over 100,000 people world wide, usually through inhalation. The story also went on that even if you wash your food, you could never get this chemical off. No matter what you do you will be exposed to this very dangerous chemical every day of your life until you die.

was quoting were from drownings. Anyhow, this reporter ran the article in a paper and started a local push for a government study before they realized what the story was about.

Simple science Feathers are light. The sun gives off light. Therefore, the sun gives off feathers.

The biggest jerks While reading a newspaper, Walter came across an article about a beautiful actress and model that married a boxer who was noted for his IQ. “I’ll never understand,” he said to his wife, “why the biggest jerks get the most attractive wives.” His wife replied, “Why, thank you, dear.”

A frog telephones the Psychic Hotline. His Personal Psychic Advisor tells him, “You are going to meet a beautiful young girl who will want to know everything about you.” The frog is thrilled, “This is great! Will I meet her at a party?” “No,” says his advisor, “in her biology class.”

Night of Drinking A man and his pet cougar walk into a bar. It’s about 5pm, but they’re ready for a good night of drinking. They start off slowly, watching TV, drinking beer and eating peanuts. As the night goes on they move to mixed drinks, and then shooters, one after the other. Finally, the bartender says: “Last call.” So, the man says, “One more for me and one more for my cougar.” The bartender sets them up and they shoot them back. Suddenly, the cougar falls over dead. The man throws some money on the bar, puts on his coat and starts to leave. The bartender, yells, “Hey

buddy, you can’t just leave that lyin’ there.” To which the man replies: “That’s not a lion, that’s a cougar.”

Site preparation for RIH Clinical Services Building underway Interior residents are one step closer to a new $79.8-million Clinical Services Building at Royal Inland Hospital, with the

start of Phase 1 of the hospital’s redevelopment on September 13. “It is very exciting to watch

as development gets underway and work progresses at Royal Inland Hospital,” said of Minister of Health Terry Lake. “Once complete, the Clinical Services Building will feature new expanded clinical outpatient space, improved building access and additional parking that will benefit patients not only in Kamloops, but across the Interior.” The site preparation consists of excavating the front lawn of Royal Inland Hospital and relocating hydro and other utility services to prepare for construction starting next spring.

The new Clinical Services Building will improve access to care and provide expanded space for a variety of services, including the UBC medical school and clinical educational program, expanded medical outpatient services, up to 350 additional parking stalls and a walkway connecting the new building to the main hospital. Construction on the Clinical Services Building is expected to commence in spring 2014 and take approximately two years to complete. Following the invitation to tender issued earlier this month to pre-qualified contractors, the contract for site preparation was issued to Delnor Construction on August 28. “With site preparation work now underway, it’s great to be here with the community to

acknowledge the start of a significant project for Kamloops and the surrounding region,” said Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Todd Stone. “This work brings us one step closer to the beginning of construction on the hospital’s new Clinical Services Building.” In addition to the site preparation work, Interior Health is in the process of selecting a preferred proponent to design and build the new Clinical Services Building. The request for proposals for the design/build was released to three shortlisted proponents on August 30. The successful proponent is expected to be chosen next spring. “Interior Health is committed to delivering quality patient care to its residents. The Clinical Services Building will help us continue to deliver that care, and to ensure access for patients in the Kamloops region,” says Interior Health board chair Norman Embree. The Clinical Services Building is cost-shared between the Province and the Thompson Regional Hospital District. “As a tertiary referral hospital, Royal Inland plays an important role in the health care of not just residents in Kamloops, but across the entire Thompson region,” said Thompson Regional Hospital District chair and Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar. “It’s good to see the ground broken at the hospital, and we look forward to the continuation of work when construction begins on the Clinical Services Building next year.” Royal Inland Hospital’s redevelopment is just one example of the added capacity the government of British Columbia is building in the health system as part of record investments in health services. Since 2001, more than $8.4 billion has been invested in health capital projects province-wide.

Dr. Edward T Takahashi, B Sc, OD, Optometrist Clinic Director

New patients and referrals welcome!

Amblyopia is the lack of full development of vision in one eye which is not fully correctable with lenses and is not the result of any identifiable eye health problem. The cause of amblyopia is usually due to conditions such as crossed-eyes or a large difference in refractive error (prescription) between the two eyes. One eye becomes very dominant and the other one “lazy”. If found early enough the effects of amblyopia can be reversed. It is important that all children have a thorough visual assessment by the age of three or before if there is a family history of crossed eyes or the child occasionally crosses his or her eyes. See Takahashi Optometry Centre for all your eye health needs.

Two black swans have a new home in River City.

Special heroes receive credit For Medichair Kamloops, it’s all about giving back to the community in which they operate. “That was the driving force behind the Caregiver of the Month Program that we developed with CFJC TV,” says Chris Sellmer, a co-owner of Medichair Kamloops, a locally owned franchise that specializes in home medical equipment. “Sometimes we don’t give enough credit to the many caregivers in our community who play a vital role in improving the quality of life for those who have physical or mental disabilities. These unsung heroes often put their own life on hold to help others who otherwise wouldn’t receive the level of care

that they need.” “With that in mind, Medichair Kamloops and CFJC-TV’s Midday Show have created the Caregiver of the Month Program to recognize those people in the Kamloops area who selflessly make a difference in the quality of life of others. We are offering a monthly prize pack, which will be promoted on the CFJC-TV Midday Show Monday to Friday. Viewers are asked to nominate a special hero caregiver utilizing the link cfjctv.com/care-giver-contest. php and describe in 150 words or less how a particular caregiver is providing excellent care and service for those in need.”

Russian Magic and Culture Days On Saturday, September 28 at 7:30 pm, the Kamloops Symphony, conductor Bruce Dunn and piano soloist Maxim Bernard take to the stage at Sagebrush Theatre to thrill you with a full program exploring the depth, heart and soul of Russian Romantic music. You will hear the haunting introduction to Mussorgsky’s unfinished opera, Khovantchina, Rimsky-Korsakov’s musical depiction of enchanting tales of treachery and love, Scheherazade, and the passionate melancholy of the world’s most beloved piano concerto, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto #2. Canadian pianist Maxim Bernard has already established himself as one of today’s most promising young artists. Qualities that have been praised by critics include his commendable technique, surprising maturity, boundless imagination, and rare musical sensitivity. In addition to the ticketed evening performance, the Kamloops Symphony is participating in Canada’s Culture Days by offering free public access to our rehearsal on Saturday, September 28 at 1:00 pm in Sagebrush Theatre. Come and see the orchestra and soloist at work. Doors open at 12:30 pm and everyone is welcome.

Culture Days raises the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. With the support of volunteer groups at the national, provincial and local levels, hundreds of thousands of artists, cultural workers, organizations and groups host free public activities that take place throughout the country over the last weekend of September each year. This fall marks the introduction of free pre-concert chats with host Ray Chatelin. With 25 years as the Vancouver Province’s music critic, five years as a JUNO award classical music judge and his writing on cultural travel for a variety of magazines and websites, Ray’s presentations are guaranteed to entertain and enlighten. On Saturday, September 28, join Ray before the performance at 6:45 pm in Sagebrush Theatre for a discussion about music’s place in your life, what influences your enjoyment of music, musical language and how to get the most enjoyment from a listening experience. Expect lots of laughs and plenty of opportunity to participate in the discussion. More program and ticket information is available on the website kamloopssymphony.com.
