House fire cause undetermined The cause of a fire that left two North Shore families without homes after a fire engulfed a duplex on Tues. Sept. 10, remains undetermined. Ray Brown said he was working in the driveway of his home at 363 Alexander Ave. over the lunch hour when he heard a loud bang come from his garage. “I saw smoke and I grabbed a garden hose,” Brown said. “Then another explosion blew me back.” Brown suffered first-, secondand third-degree burns to his head and arms. The fire had spread from Brown’s garage to his home before Kamloops Fire Rescue crews were able to douse the blaze; unfortunately Brown’s half of the duplex was destroyed and the other half of the building suffered significant damage. There was also minor damage caused to the property next door to the duplex. Kamloops Fire Rescue fire inspector Arlene Ball said the explosions could have been any number of items stored in Brown’s garage, including singleuse propane cylinders, paint cans and other chemicals. “There were many chemicals in the garage, so lots of the evidence has been ruined,” she said. “Now, we’re looking for what was in the garage that could be
HOUSE FIRE. A large black plume of smoke rises from the North Shore early Tuesday afternoon. Fire crews were called to a house fire in the 300 block of Alexander Avenue Sept. 10 where a blaze erupted during the lunch hour. One person was taken to hospital with burns to his head and arms.
an ignition source – electrical or heat sources – and fire patterns. You eliminate the causes that you can and try to determine the cause of the fire.” Brown’s wife and two children – ages four and 10 months – were not home at the time, but the family’s four-year-old pit bull Caesar died in the fire. In addition to the loss of their pet, the family lost all of their belongings. If anyone wishes to help the family get back on its feet – they are looking for food, children’s clothing, diapers, baby cereal, shoes and winter clothes
– there are ways to do so: • Contact Ed LaPierre of Ace Courier Services, who will be picking up items for donation on Sun. Sept. 15. His phone number is 250-851-1131 and his email is email@example.com. • Contact Sarah Wade or Vance Tyrrell More on Facebook on Kamloops Barter Kings, Kamloops Buy and Sell or Random Acts of Kamloops. • Drop off donations to Brown’s neighbours, Tammy Durand and Willie Prokop at their home at 369 Alexander Ave.

Twenty-two riders and six support people from RCMP and supporting enforcement agencies within South East District have embarked on this year’s annual Cops for Kids Ride, which began on Fri. Sept. 6 from Kelowna. The ten-day journey will see the cyclists test their mettle on some of the province’s most grueling mountain passes and scenic highways in the Southeast region of B.C., making stops in 19 communities raising awareness and funds along the way for children in medical, physical or traumatic crisis. This year to date, the 2013 Cops for Kids Ride Team has raised almost $85,000 to date during the various fundraising events. Ride captain, Cpl. Brian
Burke, said the team has come together to make a difference for local children. “They’ve all been training and fundraising all summer, and now they come together as a team to ride rain or shine to raise even more money and awareness for children in our region,” he said. The Cops for Kids Ride will be in Kamloops on Friday after stops in Salmon Arm and Chase, then will head out to Vernon on Saturday before the Ride ends in Kelowna on Sunday. They will be at the RCMP station on Battle Street at 4 p.m. Daily updates will appear on the team blog during the ride. To follow the team along their journey or to make a donation, log on to copsforkids.org/. You can also like them on Facebook or follow them on Twitter.

First day of preschool
September 16 - September 22, 2013 Communication with others can have some interesting twists and turns. Be sure you pay attention to what they actually mean. This leans more towards enjoyment or pleasure than anything else. There can also be other situations where others are secretive and difficult to fathom. Don’t get too tied up in wondering about them. It’s better for you to understand what is expected of you even if you do feel it involves obligations you would rather not accept. This could encourage you to view your future differently. The opportunity to sort out the details so that a good foundation can be established is there and could lead to surprising results. There can be much to enjoy and you could easily spend a lot more money than you intend. This is a good time to either go on a holiday or to arrange one for later. Any involvement with a group of people should be stimulating and could produce some fiery conversations. Maintain a sensible routine when it comes to your health. A significant turning point involving somebody else can take place – this can have a deep sense of something that is meant to be, bringing much growth and development to you personally. You can suddenly be making plans to establish a different structure to your life that can be both personally and financially rewarding. There will be a lot going on and you will need to ensure that you remain focussed as you will be easily distracted and this could lead to wasting valuable time. The more single minded you are, the greater will be your success in establishing a balanced framework that you can continue to work from with almost anything you desire. Something can become obvious about another person but be careful this does not take your attention away from yourself. You can become aware of how you could benefit by adopting a more carefree approach to letting go, where necessary. Peace of mind is important and this can be established now and continue long term.
Mommyisms Idolizing her big brother in every way, Aubrielle copies Zachary in many aspects: some mannerisms like a sigh when frustrated, preferring to play Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman with him than princesses, and following him around the house and in his room. It came as no surprise when she could not stop talking about going to school like Zachary too. “I want to go to pink kindergar-
The comments or ideas you express could get a surprising reaction, especially if obligations are tied into this in some way. This is an important turning point regarding the way you establish a personal sense of peace and security that can remain in place for a long period of time. It won’t just happen – you have to seek it. You could realise that creating balance on a personal level is something that has to come from within. This will stem from the decisions you make or the way you decide to think about things in your life. There is something about this that you have never experienced before and it can make a profound difference to your life. Involvement with a group of people can throw up some surprises. Rather than comment too much you would be better observing. You are best to keep important things to yourself, as you cannot be sure of whom you can trust. At the same time, there can be much to enjoy and you need to view this in a light-hearted manner. Look back over the last 18 months of your life and any experiences that have had a profound effect on you personally. You could gain great understanding of why this was meant to be and how you have contributed to anything that was uncomfortable. A strong message of your purpose in life could emerge as well as your true wishes. Get comfortable with commitments you are willing to make or accept. Most of all, listen to your inner voice on this, which might mean you need to spend some peaceful time on your own without distractions. Others will have no qualms in pursuing what they want, likely requiring you to think about what this means long term. This week can bring personal matters to a point of completion or to a stage where they cannot be ignored. You could possibly feel detached from most other things going on, or will want to be. Weighing the future up in a serious way could be helpful as well as what needs to become a priority.

ten,” Aubrielle announced. How about preschool first? The weeks leading up to school, Aubrielle became more excited and anxious to start school. Once we bought her new “first day of school” outfit, Aubrielle would stare at it hanging in her closet and ask me when she could go to preschool . . . every day! And alas, Aubrielle’s first day of preschool arrived, and she wasn’t the only one excited! I excitedly woke up ready for the day to begin. My big girl counted from one to ten in English and in French as she ate her breakfast, and I brought out the cutest outfit from her closet that I had envisioned months ago: a blue skirt, a purple and green, plaid, button-up blouse, blue tights with colourful hearts, and black Mary-Jane-style shoes. Was I more excited to dress up Aubrielle or for this milestone in her life? (I am still unsure! Ha!) I do put emphasis on education, learning, working hard, and trying your best – for both of my kidlets. I could not help but stare at my beautiful, big girl with adoration as she walked in the room, immediately went over to the other kids, and waved “good-bye” to me as I stood at the door, just like her big brother. Aubrielle loved her first week of school and still asks daily if she is going to school, and is sad when I say, “No.” Now, I am starting to rethink having her only in preschool for two days a week. I may just put her in for three! (I can only hope she is going to be just like me when it comes to a love of learning!) ANOTHER FIRST. Aubrielle is all smiles on her first day of preschool. And now she loves every minute of it and want to go more often.

Blazers go down two in a row
The Kamloops Blazers couldn’t find their scoring touch in a 4-0 home ice loss to the Kelowna Rockets in WHL preseason action last Friday night. The Blazers had a decent start in this one and likely had their best chances in the first period as they failed to score on two separate two-onone opportunities. The Rockets got on the scoreboard first with about five minutes remaining in the first period for a 1-0 first period lead. The Blazers and Rockets both had 12 shots in the period. The second period started off on the wrong foot as the Rockets got a lucky one from a shot that deflected off a Blazers defender and in to make it 2-0 only 2:15 into the period. The Blazers were far from their best in the second period as the Rockets extended their lead via a power play to make it 3-0. The Rockets took advantage of three power play opportunities
to gain momentum and outshot the Blazers 18-5 in the period. Penalties continued to haunt the Blazers in the third period as the Rockets had 10 opportunities in the game and converted twice, while the Blazers finished 0-for5 on the night. Kelowna added a power play goal with 5:40 remaining in the game roofing a shot from the short side to give the Rockets a 4-0 win on the night. Taran Kozun had a busy night in goal making 36 saves while Jordon Cooke had the shutout for the Rockets with 26 saves. The Kamloops Blazers couldn’t find ways to score in a 5-1 loss to the Vancouver Giants in Burnaby last Sunday night. The Blazers didn’t have their best start as the Giants were all over them early on. The Giants earned a goal to make it 1-0 Vancouver midway through the first period. The Blazers got better as the period carried on despite being outshot 16-9 in the period. The Blazers were the better team in the second period. They created some good chances and Deven Sideroff and Matt Needham were both denied in tight by goaltender Payton Lee. The Blazers got on the scoreboard as Landon Cross took a shot from the point that ricochet in to tie the game at 1-1. Matt Needham and
Mitch Friesen picked up the assists on the power play goal. The Giants replied shortly after at the end of a five-on-three power play as a stick on a puck in the air made it 2-1 Giants. Cole Kehler played the first half of the game allowing two goals on 21 shots. Early in the third period, the Blazers had their chances as Nick Chyzowski got a great shot on goal but was denied by Lee. The Giants added on to their lead in the third period scoring three times on only seven shots to break the game open for a
5-1 win. The Blazers finished 1-for-5 on the power play, while the Giants also were 1-for-5. The Blazers outshot the Giants 29-28 overall. Payton Lee made 28 saves for the Giants, while Kehler made 19 saves for the Blazers in the first half of the game and Taran Kozun turned aside seven shots. The Blazers play their final preseason game in Prince George on Sat. Sept. 14. The Blazers open the WHL regular season on Fri. Sept. 20, when they host the Kelowna Rockets.
