RCMP have identified the victim of Kamloops’ first homicide of 2017 as 26-year-old Cody Foster of Kamloops. Foster was killed Saturday night at an RV park in the 9000-block of Dallas Drive, adjacent to the BC Wildlife Park. Police and emergency crews were called to the address around 9:30 p.m. Feb. 11 about a disturbance where a man was being detained by witnesses. When they arrived, police found a 56-year-old man being held down by several witnesses and the man was taken into custody. Investigators entered a trailer where they found Foster, who had succumbed to his injuries.

The suspect is described as dark-skinned, but not First Nations; 5’10” to 6’ tall; his face was covered with black bandana with white skulls; he was wearing a black-rimmed baseball cap, black jacket, and black skater shoes.

Beat the winter blues with garden-inspired scents

Many of us crave the fresh sights and scents of the warm weather in the depths of winter. And even though it’s not spring yet, you can beat the winter blues by transforming your home into a fragrant, garden-scented oasis. Fragrances from common backyard plants can enhance our mood and lift our winter-weary sprits. “Plants have scent characteristics that evoke specific emotions and even have wellness properties,” said Pam Helms, co-founder of Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day and scent sommelier. “There’s relaxing lavender, cool and crisp basil, energizing lemon verbena or soothing honeysuckle. Energizing scents work best in the kitchen, while something more relaxing is ideal for the bathroom or bedroom.” Helms said how you can bring different scents into your home. Natural, plant-scented candles or diffusers are

an easy way to bring freshness to every room, explained Helms. If you’re feeling creative, make your own indoor scented garden with pretty planters,” she related. “Not only will it smell amazing, but it’ll add a pop of colour, too.” Another practical way to add incredible scents to your home is through cleaning and creating an aroma therapeutic experience while you do it. “It provides you with a wonderful sensory experience while cleaning to make the process more enjoyable, and also leaves your home smelling like a fresh garden,” Helms stated. “Use products that combine essential oils in fragrance compositions. The products include pleasing scents that you’ll want to use again and again.” To bring garden scents to your home, check out a DIY planter project from Grace Bonney, founder of Design Sponge, at www.mrsmeyers.com. – NC
