Fill your Fridays with a market and music Fridays are anything but boring here on the North Shore. With warmer weather blowing in and longer daylight hours you have much more time in the day to get things done and enjoy the outdoors. So why not start your weekend off right by spending it in your community? The North Shore Business Improvement Association (NSBIA) and the City of Kamloops have made this task easy by planning RSOE - fr ear 2011.indd 1 Fridays which are packed full of entertainment and frolic here on this side of the river. The NSBIA once again started the Friday fun with their popular Friday night Farmer’s Markets. Happening each Friday afternoon/evening from 4pm to dusk until the Thanksgiving long weekend at Spirit Square, the North Shore Farmer’s Market is a must hit spot on the way home from a long week at work. “The North Shore Farmer’s Market is back!” explains Ula Chauvet, project coordinator at the NSBIA. “It all takes place at Spirit Square, Fridays from 4pm until dusk. We have various vendors including our favourite regulars and new arrivals each week. Every week you can find great goodies and fresh, local foods like honey, eggs, salsas, organic meats, and grass fed beef. The produce should be coming in People come from miles around to pick up their fresh eggs from Joe Vassallo. He’s just one of the quality vendors that sell their wares at each real quick as well.” The Farmer’s Market is a great Friday afternoon’s Farmer’s Market at Spirit Square on the North Shore.

place to go and stock up on local and fresh food as well as find other exciting buys which sometimes include wild salmon, pottery, plants and creative crafts. Never a better place to buy fresh and in season produce and fruit, the hardworking merchants at the market bring you the best our area has to offer most of the times right from the field ready for your plate. “The Farmer’s Market is a great place to come and get to know your neighbours and experience what your community has to offer,” continues Ula. “Each vendor has its regulars and each vendor brings people to the market. Those people then see what everyone else has to offer and tries things from other vendors, that’s how farmer’s markets go. You should make the Friday Farmer’s Market part of your routine, come out and support your local farmers.” In addition to being able to buy fresh, local foods and goodies, the North Shore also hosts Music in the Park live each Friday night during the summer in McDonald Park.

Real life littlest hobo makes long journey home

Suki (whose real name is Pollux) has quite a “tail” to tell. The Kamloops SPCA received the Lab cross as a stray on June 30th from a good Samaritan who found her a few weeks previous and cared for her. On her arrival at the SPCA, Suki was checked for I.D. and her microchip was traced not only to a veterinary clinic in Quebec, but to her owner as well. Suki’s family was overjoyed to hear that their dog, which went missing from Montreal over a year ago, had been found. Through the generosity of a grant from SPCA International, Suki will soon be flying home to reunite with her family.

“This is an amazing story. We have no idea how Suki got to Kamloops from Quebec or what has happened to her over the last year, only she knows. We are happy to have had a small part in reuniting Suki with her family and are ecstatic to be sending her home,” said B.C. SPCA Kamloops Branch acting branch manager Sarah Gerow. The SPCA reminds everyone to have some permanent identification on your pets, such as a tattoo or microchip. “Without Suki having a microchip, we would not have been able to find her family.” For more information contact Kamloops SPCA at 250-3767722 or

Cathy McLeod, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of National Revenue and Member of Parliament for KamloopsThompson-Cariboo, announced recently on behalf of the Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities funding that will allow the Kamloops Airport to make important safety upgrades. With a federal investment of $905,700, the airport will be able to purchase a new fire truck and equipment to improve the airport’s emergency response capacity. “The support that Kamloops Airport receives from the Government of Canada is essential for our continuing operation.” said Kamloops Airport Managing Director Fred Legace. “Major purchases like this are outside of

the capacity of regional airports like Kamloops but are necessary to ensure safety of the airports system. The service should begin operation within the coming 12 months with the delivery of the truck and the hiring and training of personnel.” Airports Capital Assistance

After a very long year away from home, Suki (aka Pollux) was happily reunited with her family in Quebec!

Airport receives funding for needed upgrades Program (ACAP) finances capital projects related to safety, such as rehabilitating runways and taxiways, and purchasing visual aids and heavy airside mobile equipment like fire trucks and snowplows. Since ACAP was first introduced, the Government of Canada has invested a total

of $556 million in 678 projects at 171 airports, including today’s announcement. Over 99 per cent of these projects were airside safety-related projects such as runways, taxiways and visual aids, as well as heavy airside mobile equipment such as fire trucks and snowplows.

The BIG Little Science Centre will be moving

The BIG Little Science Centre will be at a new location starting in September 2011. The demand for teaching classrooms at Bert Edwards Science and Technology School has made it impossible to continue the many offerings of the BIG Little Science Centre in the limited space that was available.

At the George Hilliard Elementary School building, the science centre will have access to eight rooms, a great improvement over the three rooms available at B.E.S.T. The move will be made gradually over the summer, and most of the summer camps will likely be at B.E.S.T.

Moving will be a huge task, so lots of help will be needed. The BIG little Science Centre thanks Gord Stewart and the Directors who worked so hard to make this move to a larger facility possible as well as the Board of School Trustees of District 73 for approving this move to a larger facility.

Community grants help policing services Kamloops, Barriere, Chase, Clearwater, the Sun Peaks Mountain Resort Municipality, and the Thompson-Nicola Regional District will be receiving Strategic Community Investment Fund (SCIF) grants. Funds come from the Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program (TFRS) and Small Community and Regional District Grants (SCG). This is important because SCIF grants allow communities to invest in their own priority projects.

The Traffic Fine Revenue Sharing program helps municipalities that directly pay for police enforcement costs. The grants come from ticket fines and court-imposed fines on violation tickets, and the amount of money a municipality receives is based on its contribution to total municipal policing costs. This money will provide additional funding for local policing services and crime prevention programs.

“Local issues are understood best by local governments. That’s why programs like the Strategic Community Investment Fund make such a difference. They give local governments the freedom to re-invest money in projects they have identified as priorities,” said Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake.

Tour Ukrainian Church from inside out Tour Ukrainian Orthodox Church of All Saints from inside out While traveling to Europe, South America or elsewhere at some point it is almost guaranteed that you will visit a church. Whether you are religious or not, it is almost impossible not to be taken in by the beauty of some of these works of art. Why not check out a local piece of art here at home? Here in Kamloops the Ukrainian Orthodox Church of All Saints is offering icon tours of the interior of the church during July and August and they invite you to come and see the masterpiece for yourself. “Icon Tours can be as formal or informal as the person would like,” explains Gareth Howell. “Our church is painted from floor to ceiling in icons which are depictions of the saints, Christ, the Virgin Mary (Theotokos) and events from the Bible. Icons in Orthodoxy are considered an integral part of our worship. Anyone is wel-

come to come and see the inside of our church and there will be two people there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays to help with any questions they may have as they walk through the history of the Christian faith as well as the history of Orthodox Christianity in Ukraine. The tours are being offered even if people are merely curious to see what the church looks like inside, if they’ve ever driven past the green domes and wondered what

was inside, or for those interested in history, art, or religion.” The Ukrainian Orthodox Church of All Saints is open to the public on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1pm until 3pm or by appointment. You will find the church with the green domes at 1044 8th Street. For more information or to book a tour call Father Mykola (Michael) at 250-3185480 or 778-220-5584. You can also email

Hilarious advice on how to look after your husband This advice was allegedly in a Home Economics textbook. Have his dinner ready. Plan the night before to have a delicious meal ready for him on time. This will let him know that you’ve been thinking of him and concerned about his needs. Most men are hungry when they come home and the thought of a good meal is part of the warm welcome he needs. Make yourself look nice. Take a 15 minutes rest so that you will be refreshed when he arrives home. Touch up your make-up and put a pink ribbon in your hair. Don’t forget he has just been with a lot of work-weary people, so he will need you to look fresh. Be gay and interesting, as his boring day will need a lift. Clear away the clutter around the house. Make one last trip through the main part of the house just before your husband arrives home and gather up school books, toys, paper, etc. Run a duster over the tables. Then, when he arrives home, your husband will feel he has reached a haven of rest and order. It will give you a lift too.

Prepare the children. Take a few minutes to wash their hands and faces, comb their hair and if necessary, change their clothes. They are little treasures and he would like to see them playing the part. Minimise all noise. As soon as he arrives home, turn off the washer, dryer, dishwasher and vacuum. Encourage the children to be quiet. Be happy to see him. Greet him with a warm smile and look glad to see him. Don’t greet him with problems and don’t complain if he is late for dinner. Count this as minor compared to what he might have gone through that day. So make him comfortable. Have him lean back in his armchair or suggest that he lie down in the bedroom. Have a cool drink ready for him. Arrange his pillow and offer to take off his shoes. Speak in a low, soft, soothing and pleasant voice. Allow him to relax and unwind. Listen to him. You may have a dozen things to tell him, but the moment of his arrival is not the time. Let him talk first. Make the evening his. Never complain if he does not take you
