A Welcome War . . . while it lasted Kamloops resident Russ Sterling didn’t mind lining up for lower gas prices on Wednesday morning (May 11) at the Chevron station on Eighth Street in North Kamloops. Vehicles were waiting as long as 40 minutes to fill up for a price per litre — $1.07.9 — that, for the day, was the lowest in Kamloops. Some other stations, including Costco and Safeway, were also selling gas for the bargain rate earlier in the week. Alas, by mid-week, most non-Chevron and non-Costco gas stations elsewhere in the city had jacked up their prices to as much as $1.34.9 a litre. Dave Eagles/KTW

When a buck-seven is an hour-long bargain By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It had been a long time since Russ Sterling filled up his Chevy pickup truck. “I never fill it up,” he said. “I haven’t filled it up probably in five years.” That changed on Wednesday, May 11, when Sterling took advantage of the low fuel prices being offered by one of a few select local

gas stations. Sterling waited 40 minutes in line to pump about $100 worth of regular unleaded gas into his vehicle at the Chevron on Eighth Street in North Kamloops, which had a posted price of $1.07.9 per litre. “For me, definitely it was worth the wait,” he said. “Just down the road it was $1.35 [per litre].” According to gasbuddy.com, four Kamloops stations had posted prices on Wednesday under $1.08 per litre — the three local

Chevrons and Costco. A handful of other retailers were offering gas for under $1.20 per litre, but the majority were up in the $1.30 range. Sterling said he and other motorists weren’t frustrated at all by the long waits at the North Shore Chevron — which reportedly lasted as long as an hour at some points during the day. “Everybody was happy,” he said. “There was one lady who came to fill up her car, then half an

hour later she came back with her minivan. She was happy.” North Shore Chevron manager Kevin Wallace said he doesn’t set the pump price — a task handled by Chevron’s head office — but he was happy to see the station so busy. “It’s unbelievable,” he said. “Right now [Wednesday afternoon], people are lined up all the way around the block on both sides.” Wallace said he’s never seen

anything like it. “Not this busy,” he said. “It’s crazy busy. We’ve basically quadrupled our business compared to when the prices were stabilized.” Wallace said the amount of fuel his station has gone through in the last couple days has been staggering. He said they have four 10,000-gallon tanks, which are usually filled every nine or 10 days. This week, they were refilled after a day and a half.

Ajax mine reps to hold open house in June By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops residents and city council got their first public look at a plan for what is already a controversial proposed mining project just outside city limits. Officials from Abacus Mining and Exploration, which is owned by Polish company KGHM, gave council a 10-minute presentation on the proposed Ajax mining project. The mine operation, which is would be located a couple of

kilometres south of the city limits in Aberdeen, stretches west to the Coquihalla Highway and is part of the old Afton mine site. Council learned the mine is expected to produce about 50,000 tons of copper 100,000 ounces gold per year for the life of operation, which is expected to be 23 years. It will take about 1,000 people to build the project over a two-year period, which, if approved, would start in 2013. The mine would eventually employ 350 to 400 full-time people.

As for its environmental impact, the mining company said the mine would draw its water from Kamloops Lake, taking potentially 2,000 cubic litres per hour from an existing station at the lake. However, the company noted it is working to reduce that figure. The tailings from the mine would be pumped and stored in a facility between the Coquihalla Highway and Lac Le Jeune Road, while the Inks Lake area would be used for a process and runoff-water pond. Mark Whittaker, project

manager for Ajax, said the mine would work around Jacko Lake and respect the area. “It was very clear to us that Jacko Lake was the centrepiece of the area,” he told council. The company said it has no plans to change the access to the popular fish-bearing lake to the public. City councillors didn’t offer up any opinions on the plan, but Mayor Peter Milobar noted approval of the mine ultimately rests with the federal and provincial governments. Several residents at the meeting expressed their concerns.

Local environmental activist Ruth Madsen argued heavy blasting from the mine will traumatize the fish and destroy the habitat around Jacko Lake. She questioned whether the city wants to be known for killing a lake to build another mine. Meanwhile, the company said it expects to hold a public open house on the project sometime in late June. Mine officials met with the city and staff and the directors of Thompson-Nicola Regional District in the spring of 2010 to introduce the project.

FIRE WALKERS A small but dedicated group of walkers headed out from Valleyview’s Fire Station No. 3 and toward downtown in an effort to raise funds during the May 7 third annual Firefighters Burn Walk. Leading the charge was Dianne Smith (left), and Candice Baytaluke. Money raised will go to help send children who have received burns and scalds to a one-week summer camp.

LOCAL NEWS

Taking on tanning Owner miffed at lack of consultation By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The owner of a the province’s largest tanning salon is burning over a decision by city council to support a ban on minors using indoor tanning devices. Bill Sanesh, owner Bikini Bill’s on Victoria Street in downtown Kamloops, said he is disappointed council didn’t speak to anyone in the industry before giving support to ban requested by the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS). “We’re 100 metres from city hall and no one phoned or checked with us before moving forward on this motion,” he told KTW. The issue arose at the Tuesday, May 10, council meeting after representatives from the local CCS chapter asked council to endorse a resolution, which is expected to be debated at this year’s Union of B.C. Municipalities meeting, for provincial legislation to prohibit minors from

using indoor-tanning devices. The CCS is also looking for a ban on advertising aimed at youth and government regulation of the indoor tanning industry. The society said using indoor tanning equipment before the age of 35 can increase the risk of melanoma by 75 per cent. Sanesh disagrees with the CCS data and instead argued indoor tanning offers little to no risk for users. He said his business takes all necessary precautions, which include being strict with eye protection and not allowing someone to tan for three days straight. The current policy at Bikini Bill’s is for anyone under the age of 16 to have parental consent before tanning. Sanesh said nearly all of the minors who do tan are doing so for medical reasons. He believes the decision to tan should be left up to the consumer. Council voted in

favour to endorse the resolution, with councillors Pat Wallace and John DeCicco opposed. Wallace argued the city does business with the entire community and for council to get in the middle or suggest parents aren’t properly educating their kids is stepping “over and beyond our mandate.” However, she did say she would likely support the resolution at UBCM. Coun. Tina Lange said parents sometimes need help and government often decides what minors are able to do. “I don’t see this as taking away people’s free choice or hurting business,” Lange said. “I see this as supporting healthy living.” Lange noted Kamloops is a community that supports healthy living. The original UBCM resolution to ban minors from indoor tanning was brought forward by the community of Esquimalt on Vancouver Island.

RV park also eyed for former sanitorium By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It used to be place where people were forced to go to recover from a deadly disease. Now, the developers of Tranquille on the Lake are hoping people will want to spend some time at the old tuberculosis sanatorium for recreational reasons. City council has “We’ve got lots of given its support to golf courses, so an an application by BC option for people to Wilderness Tours, the do something company that owns the different, I think property, to temporarily turn some of the it’s awesome.” land into an RV park — Coun. Tina Lange and farm market. The fate of the application will ultimately be decided by the B.C. Agricultural Land Commission. The developers want to take a portion of the property out of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) to operate an outdoor boat-storage yard, a 115-stall RV park and a market for a two-year period starting this summer. The company is hoping to operate the park this summer in an effort to raise some money as it develops an overall neighbourhood plan. As part of the ALR application, the devel-

oper has decided to scrap a plan to build a golf course for the resort. The new plan elicited mostly positive reviews from council. Coun. Tina Lange said she’s excited about an urban farming-market area and pleased to see the project move forward. “We’ve got lots of golf courses, so an option for people to do something different, I think it’s awesome,” she said. However, Coun. Nancy Bepple said she couldn’t support the request, arguing the RV park is “well outside” a use the city originally envisioned. She also suggested there are other places the RV park could be located that are not part of the ALR. “In the end, it would be no use to agriculture going forward,” Bepple said. She was the lone councillor to vote against the motion to support the application. The development has been years in the making and could look a bit different than first planned when the property is completely filled out 15 years from now. The golf course is gone, but the idea of getting the farm up and running and turning it into a food-production centre still remains. An overall neighbourhood plan for the development is expected to be back to council by the end of the summer.

And justice for all? No son, justice for some OLLEAGUE TIM Petruk received a pretty nasty letter recently, berating him for a court story he wrote on a man accused of threatening some students. It’s unfortunate the letter writer didn’t realize Petruk was just reporting what happened in court. I have to admit, though, I felt for the writer. I share the outrage the letter writer felt when hearing these young men testify they felt threatened by the dad who confronted them, accusing them of bullying his son. I was equally furious when I heard these young men, just hours after the incident, talk about how they felt the dad was deliberating driving his vehicle at them as they stood at a bus stop, about how frightened they were when the vehicle came up over the curb. I believe them, but I have some advantages over the judicial system that has acquitted this dad. First, I know these kids. I’ve watched them grow from youngsters into fine teenagers who have themselves been the brunt of bullying because they attend Beattie School of the Arts. Apparently, in some minds, that makes them gay and, hence, victims of all kinds of bullying — to the point the police have been called on at least two occasions. I believe them because I saw the fear in their eyes at the time. I listened to my own son, one of their friends who wasn’t at the bus stop but on his way there, talk about how angry they were to be

LEVEL accused of bullying this man’s young son. I believe them because I’m a mom. And, this is where the tough life lesson comes in. I just believe them. The judge, however, had to apply other criteria. He had to consider testimony, believability, credibility, likelihood of truth, possible doubt — all those questions I don’t have to think about because, in my heart, I believe these teenagers. So, now comes the need to explain why the result isn’t what they had expected would happen. It’s the justice versus what-webelieve-should-happen talk — and that’s been made a bit harder by another reality some of these kids witnessed earlier this week when two police cruisers rolled up outside their school and a handful of RCMP officers waded into a crowd of teens gathered on private property. A neighbour had called the police, claiming the teens were smoking pot. These officers approached what school district officials say was about two dozen teens and proceeded to search some.

That led to some backtalk from some of these kids and the end result was two teens busted for having drugs or drug paraphernalia and two more arrested for obstruction. Where’s the fairness, my son asked? Tough question to answer. Why are police officers allowed to swear at teens, my son asked, yet teens get arrested if they swear at a police officer? Another tough question and, frankly, I have no answer expect to say police officers expect respect. Giving it appears to be another matter for some of them. The school district will “deal with” the quartet of students arrested, according to superintendent Terry Sullivan. I figure that’s a euphemism for suspension, a belief my son shares. Here’s where the hardest question comes into play: Why does the court system let one person walk and yet these kids may be punished ? Because that’s the way the world works is the obvious answer, albeit one that is hard for many to swallow. All these teens have learned some life lesson now; there are different rules depending on who is making the call. That’s called life — and nobody said it would always be fair. But, for those young men who went into that courtroom to testify or to support each other, know this: I believe you, your parents believe you and, whether you accept it or not right now, you did the right thing. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

It wasn’t long ago that smoking was not only a tolerated habit, but was also encouraged as an acceptable way to unwind from the stress of the day. From airplanes to bars and restaurants, people from every socio-economic background were targeted by tobacco companies selling the idea of smoking. When studies began to prove the link between smoking and major health problems such as heart disease, lung cancer and stroke, it was too late to stop smoking from becoming part of our culture. To this day, smoking is still regarded by medical definitions as a lifestyle choice rather than an addiction. But, an initiative from the B.C. government aims to reduce smoking and its effects that cost the economy billions in lost wages and health-care expenses annually. Premier Christy Clark announced that smoking cessation tools such as nicotine patches and gum would be paid for under the province’s prescription drug program. While critics decry the move as political posturing from a new premier trying to win a coming provincial election, it is a step in the right direction to reducing smoking. Over the next four months, Clark will develop the program further by consulting with other stakeholder groups. Studies show that people who invest financially in their own treatment are more successful, which could indicate a rebate upon successful completion of a program might be more effective. Further support, like counselling for behavioural and emotional triggers — having that cup of coffee with your mid-morning smoke — would also help British Columbians kick the habit for good.

Proposed Ajax mine will cause irreperable harm Editor: Recently, I took part in an Ajax mine information session that included a 45-minute slide show and a tour of the proposed mine site just south of Aberdeen. On the field trip, we were treated to three stops with accompanying explanations by project manager Jim Whittaker, who had trouble answering most of the questions posed to him. I tried to comprehend the magnitude of the proposed dump, a current ranch south of Goose Lake Road where, looking south as far as the eye could see, the rocks taken from the open-pit mine would be dumped. This is within three kilometres of the city limits and the residential areas of Aberdeen and Pineview Valley. The actual open-pit mine site is next to Jacko Lake. I was assured the lake would not be touched, but I find that hard to believe when drilling and hauling would take place

very close by, for up to 25 years — 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Generations of cougars, coyotes, fox, marmots, rabbits, fish, frogs, bugs, bears, birds and cattle would be born, live and die under the thundering roar of giant machinery. I am supposed to believe these animals would be just fine, simply because Jacko Lake would not be not drained? Then there is Inks Lake, where generations of Kamloops teens and young adults have partied, played hockey and ridden their bikes. Families take their children and light winter bonfires — a longstanding New Year’s Day tradition. In summer, families go there for picnics, biking, walking and birdwatching. At Inks Lake, I tilted my head back and imagined a rock wall 180 metres high, encircling and stretching from Lac le Jeune Road all the way to the Coquihalla Highway and

up the east ridge of Sugar Loaf Hill. It would contain the oozing sludge generated by Ajax mine in its drive for low-grade copper-ore profits. All this for jobs that could last 20 years, but would forever destroy 2,000-plus hectares of sensitive grassland. All the land needed, except Jacko Ranch, has already been purchased by the mining company. It holds the mineral rights. Grasslands once disturbed have never been successfully restored to the existing diverse environment. Once the tour was finished, it became clear only money counts and a clean environment and quality of life do not. I urge every Kamloops citizen to take a tour of the proposed Ajax mine. I guarantee stunning scenery and mindboggling information. Christina Mader Kamloops

Sandman can be a solution to parkade-in-park dilemma Editor: With the parkade controversy abruptly laid to rest, it’s time for a postmortem reality check. It’s a mix of things known and things not known publicly. We know the twolevel parkade on the Heritage House parking lot will provide 350 weatherproof parking stalls at a cost of $7.5 million, plus an equal amount to cover financing costs over time. The project replaces the approximately 350 uncovered city-owned parking spots lost on the parking lot and former Scoopz ice-cream location, the latter now owned by Tom Gaglardi’s Northland Properties. Cost per stall, factor-

ing in long-term financing costs: About $43,000. We don’t yet know the annual debt service and operating and maintenance costs for the parkade, nor the likely revenues from the parkade and other city-owned parking infrastructure, like metered spaces, that will help pay for it. Any revenue shortfall will have to be picked up through property taxes paid by those who will never have occasion to use the parkade. It’s almost certain the city will never be able politically to set parking fees high enough to fully fund parkade operations. We don’t have any objective data to support claims as to why the parkade is needed.

No numbers on how many downtown parking spaces and estimated deficiency. No numbers on how many business people would commit to parking on Lorne Street. Not a single fact to substantiate the claim by downtown business association manager Gay Pooler that “businesses have left the downtown core or failed to locate downtown because of lack of parking.” We know the city reneged on a 2004 commitment to require a developer buying the Scoopz lot to provide public parking. Hotel tycoon Gaglardi, now owner of the property, gave the city an imperious brush-off when asked to

help solve the parking dilemma. This despite standing to save millions from a 10-year propertytax exemption on his Sandman Hotel and having the most to gain from Lorne Street road improvements and future expansion of convention facilities at the riverfront sports palace — all taxpayer funded. A possible way of meeting the supposed business needs for more parking would be for the city to require Gaglardi to set aside 100 or so of the planned 231 parking stalls at the Sandman for use by business people during normal business hours (9 a.m. to 6 p.m.), Mondays to Fridays. During these hours, most hotel parking spots

will not be occupied by hotel guests. In the unlikely event even more spaces are needed to meet business demand, there would still be the 170 parking spots at the Heritage House site if the parkade isn’t built. Beautifying this site could still be done as a gesture to the save-thepark crowd. For its unintended humour, my award for best objection to the parkade was that it would block park and river views for those driving to work. “Sorry, officer, but the view is so incredibly lovely this morning.” “Be sure to let the court know that, sir.” Stephen Trower Kamloops

Chiefs ponder day-scholars lawsuit By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

A potential suit against the federal government on behalf of residential-school day scholars has taken a big step forward, according to First Nation leaders meeting in Kamloops. Tk’emlups Indian Band (TIB) Chief Shane Gottfriedson said the two-day meeting helped give First Nation political leaders a direction and mandate to move to the next step. The next phase will likely include a classaction lawsuit against the federal government on behalf of day scholars, but the TIB chief isn’t ready to confirm one would be filed. “I can say we’re definitely looking for a resolution,” Gottfriedson said, noting there are still technical issues to work out with respect to a lawsuit.

The TIB has taken a lead role on the issue in B.C. and has met with several other First Nations leaders during the last five months. The two-day meeting to discuss the issue, which started on May 10, brought chiefs from around the country to Kamloops, including National Chief of the Assembly of First Nations Shawn Atleo. Day scholars are First Nations members who attended residential schools during the day, but went home at night. They have been said to have suffered the same abuses as their counterparts who lived in the schools. The day scholars are looking for compensation for loss of culture, language, traditions and for traumas suffered at the schools. Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs Grand

Left behind luggage a common practice By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

There may be few things more frustrating than taking a flight for your long-awaited vacation, only to find your luggage didn’t quite make the trip. In some cases the bags may simply have been misplaced, but other times they’re intentionally taken off by airline staff to lighten the flight’s load. It’s called “bulk-outs” or weighing out, and according to Kamloops Airport manager Fred Legace, it happens more often than people might think. He said the practice is more common at smaller airports like Kamloops, but it’s not restricted to smaller markets or smaller planes. The issue came to light after a CBC News story reported customers from Kelowna complaining Air Canada had intentionally left baggage behind, but failed to tell them. “It’s a bit of a tough circumstance,” Legace said, noting the

“It’s a bit of a tough circumstance.” — Fred Legace airlines can’t mention to passengers their luggage is being removed because of security reasons. “On normal days everything is OK, but when everyone wants to travel to a vacation destination and take all kinds of stuff with them, it can be challenging.” It’s also not uncommon for a passenger, who has paid excess luggage fees, to have their bags removed. The bags are supposed to be sent out on a later flight. Legace, who has personally been on the wrong side of the bulk-out practice throughout his travels, said the luggage pulled off a plane is done randomly, other than that airlines try to take off bags that are heading home

A11

with a passenger rather than heading to a destination. Sports equipment is also one of the first pieces of luggage taken off a plane. In an effort to avoid adding to an already infuriating situation, airport officials have a few easy recommendations for the flying public. Legace recommends all luggage be tagged with a phone number and an address of the destination, along with a piece of paper with the address inside the bag, as baggage crews will likely look inside for identification. It’s also recommended all important and necessary items, like medication and I.D., be kept in a carry-on bag. Legace explained the practice became more common in recent years after a crash in Montreal a few years back. A report into the crash noted the permitted weight on planes was out of sync with the growth of people, so passenger weight loads were increased, reducing the amount for luggage.

RIH and KGH seen as partners, Halpenny says By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

There has always been a perception of Kelowna envy in the Tournament Capital with comparisons between the two cities being common. But when it comes to health care and hospitals, the man at the top of the Interior Health Authority doesn’t quite get why there is a competition between the

two cities. IHA president and CEO Robert Halpenny said the capital investment in Royal Inland Hospital in the last 10 years is greater by $10 million compared to the Kelowna hospital. He noted $75 million has been spent in Kamloops compared to $65 million in Kelowna. But that difference didn’t include nearly $1 billion being spent at Kelowna General Hospital for a new

patient care tower and the Interior Heart and Surgical Centre. “The issue of comparROBERT ing the HALPENNY two sites — we’re looking at what’s best for all of Interior Health,” Halpenny said, adding the

heart centre in Kelowna will save lives in Kamloops. Halpenny made the comments while speaking to Kamloops media as he toured and met with RIH officials on Wednesday, May 11. The hospital’s reputation has taken a beating in the last year, mostly over revelations surgical tools weren’t being properly sterilized. There has also been concern expressed in the community RIH will lose its

tertiary status, but Halpenny suggested that assumption is false. He expects RIH to remain one of the two tertiary hospitals in the region for the foreseeable future. Halpenny also discussed the development of the RIH master site plan, which is now in a draft form and looks at the physical space of the hospital and growth over the next couple decades.

c

Part of the plan, which isn’t complete yet, is to look at tackling parking issues facing the hospital. Halpenny said the IHA wants to work with the city before making any additions or changes to parking around the hospital. The next step in the draft plan is to take it to the IHA’s board, then the regional district and finally the provincial government for funding requests.

Heather – Assistant Manager HAPPY POND FISH!

• Last week’s column was all about getting that pond sparkling clean and ready for your fish to enjoy their summer! Yes…fish have summers, too. It’s their time to shine! • Remember to wait until your pond water maintains a steady 8 degrees Celcius before feeding your resident fish, and then start out with a wheat germ spirulina food. It’s easier to digest in cooler temps. • Water should be maintaining a steady 10 degrees Celcius or more before adding any new fish. We know it’s tempting, but for the sake of your fish, wait for the right time. • Andrea recommends shubunkins, sarasas, comets as your easier-to-keep pond fish. Koi are fantastic, too, but they will get a lot larger than goldfish and watch! they can be jumpers! • Here’s some ‘cool’ pond tips from Petland about introducing new fish to your pond: 1. Never place new fish directly into your pond without first conditioning their environmental temperature. The water temperature change could easily kill them. 2. Gently empty the fish bag into a clean 5 gallon bucket (one you use only for your pond). Use an air stone and air pump, if available, this will help. 3. Over a 40 minute period, add one cup of de-chlorinated pond water into the bucket every 5 minutes. Keep this up until, using a dip thermometer, bucket water and pond are the same temperature. 4. Once temperature is regulated, gently remove your fish from the bucket with a net, and carefully place into pond. 5. Use contents of bucket to water plants in the garden but don’t add water from bucket back into pond, as this could cause a pH imbalance. 6. Avoid feeding your new fish for the first 24 hours until they have had time to adjust to the water conditions and their new home. They most likely would not eat and the uneaten food will cause unnecessary pollution in your pond.

OF KAMLOOPS

out of the KID By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HEY ARE DOING IT IN Europe, Australia, Japan, Quebec and even Vernon — but not in Kamloops. Not yet, anyway. However, if a local massage therapist has her way, elementary students in the Tournament Capital will soon be rubbing each other’s shoulders to become better students and better friends. Jenn Johnson, a Kamloops-based registered massage therapist and the B.C. organizer for the Massage in Schools Program (MISP), is attempting to get local kids involved in the idea. “In schools where they’ve implemented it, they’ve found that there’s been a decrease in aggression and the students are learning better,” she said. “It somehow just seems to foster respect and empathy between kids and it makes them better learners.” The program sees a certified instructor — in this case, Johnson herself — go to elementary schools and teach children basic sit-down massage techniques. Students then pair up with friends and take turns — for seven to eight minutes each — rubbing each other’s shoulders, backs and heads. “All the massages with the kids are fully clothed and seated,” Johnson said. “And the strokes are quite simple.” Johnson said the techniques taught to kids help brain integration, co-ordination, stress reduction and, of course, relaxation. The massages would ideally be done at the beginning of each school day, taking about 15 minutes. Johnson said she has talked to “a few” local principals, but has yet to hear back. “I’ve been talking to some of the schools, but I haven’t had anybody take me up on it yet,” she said. “It’s mostly been sort of a, ‘We’ll call you’ response. “I think it’s a bit of a hard sell. Before people have seen it and know what it’s all about, it’s kind of a hard concept to see the benefit of.” Kamloops-Thompson School District superintendent Terry Sullivan said he hasn’t heard anything about MISP — but that doesn’t mean it couldn’t take off locally. “I think it’s something the board would have to think about,” he said. “I don’t know anything about it. But, if we were approached with a proposal, we would try to contact some of those schools where it’s being offered and look at that.” One such school is just down Highway 97 in Vernon. Tom Watkinson, principal of

Okanagan Landing elementary, said his school has been taking part in MISP for about five years. “We had a parent who was in England and she actually brought back a newspaper clipping from over there about massages in schools,” he said. “When I started investigating it, it was exactly what we wanted.” Watkinson said Okanagan Landing has partnered with the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy to offer the program, which sees a registered massage therapist and two or three massage students visit the elementary school for three eight-week sessions each year. The program is offered to students in grades 1, 2 and 3. “We teach the children how to massage each other,” Watkinson said, explaining the once-a-week sit-down massages cover the head, back and arms. “And, we’ve had a definite decrease in bullying.” But, Watkinson admitted, it wasn’t easy to convince School District No. 22 to allow him to run MISP. “I did a presentation to the board and they were really reluctant — very reluctant,” he said. “But, I just kept talking to them because I thought it was really important.” Eventually, Watkinson made another presentation to the district’s assistant superintendent, who then took the issue back to the board. “He brought it forward and they said yes,” he said. Watkinson said the program empowers children and arms them with tactics to fend off unwanted touching in the future. “You have to give your permission for someone to touch you. So, again, it’s developing respect,” he said, adding letters are also sent home for parents to sign. “There’s such a fear out there of inappropriate touching, but I’m trying to put out there to the children that they’re in charge of their body — they give permission. “It teaches boundaries and it puts them in charge.” Johnson is hopeful she will have a program running in Kamloops within a year or two. “I think once it catches on here, it will really be embraced,” she said.

Learn more here Jenn Johnson is holding a course on the Massage in Schools program in Kamloops on May 28 and May 29. The course will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Academy of Learning, 699 Victoria St. For more information, email Johnson at info@jennjohnsonrmt. com.

Father acquitted of assault Judge says man’s actions ‘inappropriate,’ but he did not break any laws By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

His actions were “highly inappropriate,” a judge said, but a Kamloops dad didn’t break any laws in 2009 when he scolded a group of teens who he believed had been picking on his son. David Frank Vasil was acquitted on Wednesday, May 11, on charges of assault, uttering threats and dangerous driving. Kamloops provincial court Judge Sheri Donegan said there were too many inconsistencies in the testimony of six teenage boys who witnessed the May 5, 2009, incident at a bus stop near the former Beattie School of the Arts secondary campus in Sahali. Vasil, 43, was alleged

to have driven his truck at a group of Grade 10 students he believed were bullying his son, who was in Grade 7. The Crown said the man then threatened to hurt the group and assaulted at least one student. However, as Donegan noted in her decision, the testimony of the alleged bullies and their friends — six of whom testified at trial — was wildly inconsistent. “Although these witnesses were all present [for the incident] . . . the differences between what they believe they saw and heard struck me as significant,” the judge said. “No two witnesses saw or heard the events the same way.” One witness testified Vasil drove his truck half-

way up a grassy hill near the bus stop at the corner of Springhill Drive and Springview Place, while another said the vehicle stopped with two wheels on the sidewalk and two on the road. Some witnesses claimed they heard Vasil threatening to “rip out [the] throats” of the supposed bullies, while others said they heard no threats at all. “The inconsistencies were so significant on key points that I’m left to wonder exactly what did happen and what was said,” Donegan said, noting the teens were not being “deliberately untruthful or dishonest” in their testimony. “There were simply

laws by approaching and yelling at the teens. “His frustration boiled over that day,” Donegan said. “While his conduct as an adult and as a parent was clearly inappropriate, it was not criminal.”

too many inconsistencies for me to be convinced beyond a reasonable doubt.” Donegan said she accepted the testimony of defence witness Chris Neurauter, another Beattie parent who was present for the entire incident. At trial, Neurauter claimed he saw Vasil park his vehicle near the bus stop and approach the group of Grade 10 students, but said he didn’t hear any threats. The altercation ended when Neurauter removed Vasil from the group of teens. “I believe Mr. Neurauter,” Donegan said. “There is absolutely no reason not to believe him. Therefore, I must acquit Mr. Vasil.” The judge condemned Vasil’s decision to confront the students, but said he didn’t break any

BEST INTEREST RATES PROTECTED BY: $100,000 CDIC Insured $100,000 Assuris Insured Unlimited Credit Union Insured

Chase RCMP are hoping a tip from the public will help them track down a missing Neskonlith Indian Band councillor who disappeared while camping last weekend. Neskie Arrow Manuel was last seen in the early-morning hours of Sunday, May 8, while on a family camping trip on the west end of Neskonlith Lake near Chase. Manuel was still missing as of KTW press deadline on Thursday, May 12. Family members told investigators the 30-year-old walked away from the campsite at about 1 a.m., leaving his cellphone and other personal items behind. Air and ground search efforts by police, Shuswap Search and Rescue and Kamloops Search and Rescue have yet to turn up any sign of Manuel, who is a former member of the United States Navy. According to family members, Manuel recently suffered a “traumatic experience” and had become disoriented. He is described as a native male, standing about six feet tall and weighing between 180 and 190 pounds. He has short black hair and brown eyes.

Domtar ahead of next year’s emission reductions Tests mandated by MOE revealed positive air-quality results By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It may not be easy to spot from the naked eye, but the air around the Domtar mill is getting cleaner. Results of emission tests from the first quarter of 2011 showed Domtar is not only in compliance with its new air-quality permit, but the mill is also ahead of next year’s reductions. According to emission tests, which were provided by Domtar and submitted to Ministry of Environment (MOE), the mill is discharging 158 milligrams of particulate matter, well below the 200 milligrams allowed under its new permit. “We’re pleased we’re in compliance with that plan and we’re on

track to reducing those emissions,� said Bonny Skene, the public affairs manager for Domtar. As part of an amended permit handed out by the MOE in 2009, the mill is subject to emissions testing every three months. Domtar had until the end of March to complete its first official test under the new permit. After receiving a $57-million boost from the federal government for its black-liquor credit last spring, the MOE sped up the requirements to meet the amended air-quality permit several years sooner than originally ordered. Black liquor is the spent cooking liquor left over from the kraft process when digesting pulpwood into paper

pulp. It can be used as an energy source or fuel. By 2012, particulate must be reduced to a further 180 milligrams, a full year earlier than the amended permit intended. By 2013, the two proposed double powerboiler stacks must be in place, with a 50-milligram limit. Domtar had been

given until 2016 to meet the requirement. Finally, the highelevation stack must drop its emissions to 90 milligrams by 2014, completing all the work required two years earlier. The mill started last summer to make sure it meets the new schedule, which included work on its recovery boiler during a major shutdown.

If the lineups seemed extra long at local McDonald’s restaurants on Wednesday, May 11, there was a good reason — it was McHappy Day, when $1 from several food items on the menu was earmarked for a new Ronald McDonald House to be built at B.C. Children’s Hospital. Helping out at the Aberdeen location are Cynthia Bigland, whose family has benefitted from the house, her daughter Ciara and son Clayton, who were given the drive-thru window for their shift. The day saw the restaurants in Kamloops and Merritt raise $50,957.95, more than was collected last year. Dave Eagles/KTW

School District 73’s aboriginal girls’ groups have been meeting since October, and now it’s time for them to get together — and perform Zumba. The annual year-end gathering will be held at Thompson Rivers University on May 18. SD73 First Nations family counsellor Marilee Draney-Welch said the event will show the girls how many of them are involved, allowing them to network and form a community. Prayers with elders, a scavenger hunt, swimming and, of course, Zumba — a fitness workout involving international music and salsa-like dancing — will take place throughout the day. The Zumba sessions will be led by Jacqueline Geofferion of the Kamloops YMCAYWCA. “One-hundred [girls] all doing a big dance,� Draney-Welch said. “It’s powerful seeing them all together.� Zumba ties to one of the main purposes of the groups — building self esteem. “It’s neat seeing them come out of their shell,� Draney-Welch said. There are 13 aborigi-

nal girls’ groups in SD 73, with participants ranging in age from nine to 18. They are led by trained counsellors and meet regularly, usually once a week. The meetings combine activity-based learning, guest speakers and talking circles to look at such areas as cultural identity, sense of belonging, critical thinking, crisis, coping and building self esteem. “They offer a safe place to explore,� said SD 73 district principal of aboriginal education Deb Draney. Traditional talking circles are “basically a sharing circle,� Draney said, where the girls talk about bullying, body image and tough situations. The meetings give them a chance to become role models and mentors for other students, even getting older students to mentor younger ones. The groups began four years ago and run from October to May. The year-end event begins at 9:15 a.m. and finishes at 2 p.m. at various locations on campus. The Zumba dance will take place at 10 a.m. on the field at the Tournament Capital Centre. “It’s going to be a lot of fun,� Draney said.

slightly tannic and not as productive as other lakes in the region, its hatches are strong enough to make the phrase “match the hatch� worthwhile advice.

Facilities: Anglers should consider Harper Lake a daytripper as there are no facilities on site.

The lake is deep, which makes it popular with trollers in the summertime, high temperatures push trout off the shoals. Electronic fishfinders are good at finding the right trolling depth during the summer. Good fishfinders can even locate the thermocline — the band of water that separates the cool depths from the warmer surface water. Trolling just above or below the thermocline is a well-proven technique. Go with the usual trolling patterns, such as spinners and Flatfish, spoons and Wedding Bands.

healthy landscapes, healthy living 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. Grass grows deeper and stronger roots that can overpower weeds. Avoid cutting off more than 1/3 of the grass height.

Royal LePage raising money for women’s shelter By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

An annual fundraiser organized nationally by Royal LePage Realty arrives in time for spring cleaning. On Saturday, May 14, a garage sale will be held beside the Royal LePage Kamloops office at 322 Seymour St., with 100 per cent of the proceeds going to the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter. Last year’s garage-sale revenue, combined with realtors’ commission contributions throughout the year, raised $20,000. “Like so many non-profit organizations, they operate on a shoestring, and $20,000 goes a long way,� said Mike Shannon, owner of Royal LePage Kamloops Realty, explaining why they chose Y Women’s Emergency Shelter. More than 400 women and children rely on the shelter annually for an emergency haven. The shelter offers refuge, support and services. “When I contacted them, I didn’t

realize how many women and children they house each year,� Shannon said. Garage-sale items have been donated throughout April and May. “There’s loads of furniture, household items, books, electronics, sporting equipment and exercise equipment,� said Darlene Case, realtor and co-ordinator of donations for the fundraiser. “We’ve had fantastic support from the Kamloops community.� Any leftover items will be donated to another charity or to thrift shops. This is the second year Royal LePage Kamloops Realty has participated in the national event. Last year, Case said, approximately $5,800 was raised through the garage sale alone and the goal this year is to double that. The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation has raised $12 million nationally supporting nearly 200 shelters across Canada. A silent auction, barbecue and raffle will also take place at the garage sale, which begins at 9 a.m.

GLOBAL VIEWS

A golden opportunity to leave Afghanistan

“W

ith a single

bound, our hero was free,” as writers of pulp fiction used to say when they saved their hero from some implausible but inescapable peril. U.S. President Barack Obama could now free himself from Afghanistan with a single bound, if he had the nerve. The death of Osama bin Laden, founder of al-Qaeda, matters little in practical terms, but Obama could use it as a means of deflating the grossly exaggerated “terrorist threat” that legitimizes the bloated American security establishment. He could also use it to escape from the war in Afghanistan. If he acted in the next few months, while his success in killing the terrorist-in-chief still makes him politically unassailable on military matters, he could start moving U.S. troops out of Afghanistan and even begin to cut the Homeland Security Department down to size. His political enemies would accuse him of being soft on defence, but right now the accusation would not stick. The Homeland Security Department’s reason for being is the “terrorist threat.” Drive home the point

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH that bin Laden is dead, and that there has been no terrorist attack in the West at even 1/50th the scale of the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the past five years, and its budget becomes very vulnerable. Obama promised in 2009 that the first of the 30,000 extra U.S. troops he sent to Afghanistan in that year will be withdrawn this July. It would be harder to get the remaining 70,000 American troops and the 50,000 other foreign troops out, but it is now within his reach. Since it is politically impossible for a U.S. president to acknowledge military defeat, for half a century the default method for extracting American troops from lost wars has been to declare a victory and leave. It was pioneered by Henry Kissinger in the Vietnam era, it worked for the George W. Bush in Iraq and Obama could use it to get out of Afghanistan. It just has to look like a victory of sorts

until one or two years after all the American troops are gone so that, when the roof falls in, it no longer looks like the Americans’ fault. Kissinger talked about the need for a “decent interval” between the departure of U.S. troops and whatever disasters might ensue in Vietnam — and the concept applies equally to Obama and Afghanistan. The case for getting Western troops out of Afghanistan now rests on three arguments. First, that the Taliban, the Islamist radicals who governed the country until 2001 and who are now fighting Western troops there, were never America’s enemies. Al-Qaeda (which was almost entirely Arab in those days) abused their hospitality by planning its attacks in Afghanistan, but no Afghan has ever been involved in a terrorist attack against the West. Second, the Taliban never controlled the minority areas of the country even during their five years in power, so why assume they will conquer the whole country if Western troops leave? Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai’s deeply corrupt and widely hated government would certainly fall, but Afghanistan’s future would probably be decided, as usual, by a combination of fighting

and bargaining between the major ethnic groups. Third, Western troops will obviously leave eventually. Whether they leave sooner or later, roughly the same events will happen after they go. Those events are unlikely to pose a threat to the security of any Western country, so why not leave now, and spare some tens of thousands of lives? This last argument is, of course, disputed by the U.S. military, which insists that victory is attainable if the brass is only given enough resources and time. But, Karzai’s government is beyond salvage, and this month’s strikingly successful Taliban attacks in Kandahar City discredit the claim that pro-government forces are “making progress” in “restoring security.” Western armies have fought dozens of wars in the Third World since the European empires began to collapse 60 years ago and they lost almost every one. The local nationalists (who sometimes call themselves Marxists or Islamists) cannot beat the foreign armies in open battle, but they can go on fighting longer and take far higher casualties. Afghanistan fits the model. When a delegation from Central Asia visited a U.S. base in

Afghanistan, one of the delegates was a former Soviet general who had fought in Afghanistan during the Soviet occupation in the 1980s. He listened patiently as eager young American officers explained how new technology and a new emphasis on “winning hearts and minds” would defeat the insurgency. Finally, his patience snapped.

Crews were kept busy serving up hamburgers and hot dogs in support of M & M Meat Shops’ 23rd annual Charity BBQ Day. Even somewhat erratic weather couldn’t dampen spirits. Nationally M&M Meat Shops raised $1,550,000 for CCFC – over $21,000,000 in the past 23 years!

Probably not, for in terms of domestic U.S. politics, it would be a gamble — and Obama Obama is not a gambler. Gwynne Dyer’s latest book, Crawling from the Wreckage, can be found in book stores.

Populist HST coming soon from Clark’s Liberals

P

REMIER Christy Clark’s shifting position on the harmonized sales tax finally appears to have come to rest. Her government is preparing to “fix the HST” — and the terms of that fix will be made available before people mark their ballots in a mail-in vote in June, Clark told reporters at the legislature last week. There has been a flurry of activity on the HST in recent days and a few things are becoming clear. Clark and Finance Minister Kevin Falcon are preparing to do what I’ve been saying for months the government must do — make a solemn vow to cut the HST rate to 11 per cent as soon as they can. And, in keeping with Clark’s fondness for populist, headlinehunting gestures, the government will also likely rebate the HST on bicycles and bicycle helmets and possibly fitness club memberships as well. A couple of other “family-first” exemptions may also be gleaned from the town halls, online surveys and polling taking place. A well-known polling firm was in the field last week, asking not only about people’s impressions of their new premier and opposition leader, but also their view toward a reduction in the HST rate. Win or lose the mail-in referendum on the tax in June or July, the B.C. Liberals are getting ready for a fall general election. Falcon estimates cutting one point from the HST would cost the provincial treasury $850 million. Given that revenue from the HST is running well ahead of the finance ministry’s estimates, that figure could be low. The government’s independent panel issued its report last

TOM FLETCHER Our Man in

VICTORIA week — and it confirms the HST is bringing in more revenue than expected. Going back to the PST would not only trigger huge costs of paying back federal transition funds and reconstructing a provincial sales-tax office, it would cost the B.C. government more than $500 million in net revenue in the first year and more after that. Here’s one reason why HST revenue is higher than originally projected.

Contrary to the apocalyptic predictions of some in the restaurant industry, the panel compiled Statistics Canada figures and found B.C. restaurant sales rose by three per cent in the first seven months of the HST. That’s exactly the same increase as the rest of the country, despite the supposedly crushing effect of the tax and B.C.’s new impaired-driving regulations. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell has pitched in as a host for the telephone town-hall program that continued this week. Bell said his call for the Interior and North Coast had more than 30,000 people on the line. Some were still upset about the HST, while others had misconceptions about what costs it does and

doesn’t increase, he said. And, lifting the tax from bicycles was a popular choice. I continue to get emails from people who are misinformed about the HST. One reader said he is paying it on heating oil. I suggested he check his bill again and there it was — a rebate for the sevenper-cent provincial portion. The GST applied before and continues to apply now. These telephone town halls have gone a long way toward putting the discussion on a factual basis. Voters may yet be persuaded to keep the HST. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Pack chase revenge The TRU WolfPack men’s baseball team is out to avenge a crushing CCBC defeat By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The red-hot TRU WolfPack might dish up a serving of cold revenge for the Vancouver Island Mariners this weekend at the Canadian College Baseball Conference championship. The five-team — TRU, Vancouver Island, Okanagan College, Prairie Baseball Academy, University of Calgary — championship tourney, which began on Thursday, May 12, and runs through Sunday, May 15, at NorBrock Stadium, gives the Pack a chance to avenge a 7-4 home loss to the Mariners in 2010’s final. “There’s a lot of guys that were here last year and that was a really sour taste in their mouths that they don’t want to taste again,” said the Pack’s head coach, Ray Chadwick, who’s squad finished the regular season on a tear, winning nine of its last 10 games. TRU squares off with Okanagan College tonight (May 13) at 7 p.m. before a date with Prairie Baseball Academy on Saturday at 4:30 p.m. The top four teams will advance to the playoffs, which consist of semifinal tilts on Saturday at 7 p.m. and Sunday at 9 a.m. Sunday’s final is scheduled for noon. The Pack, should they

make Sunday’s final, will likely pitch either Denver Wynn or Danny Moore, both of whom started on Thursday.

RAY CHADWICK

“The big thing for us was to get that No. 1 seed so that we could get those two games in on Thursday and be able to bring guys back on Sunday,” said Ray Chadwick, a fixture in the Pack’s dugout for the past eight years. Dillon Morgan, powerhitter Dave Hole and leadoff man Reid Flasch, a rookie, are expected to carry a great deal of the offensive load for the Pack.

Shortstop Adam Halland and catcher Aaron Lystang will be relied on to play solid defensively throughout the championship tournament, as they have all season. TRU has been in the league’s championship final every year since 2005, posting a 3-3 record in those title matchups. The Pack’s victories came in 2005, 2007 and 2009 — every second year — so it would only make sense if they raise a banner again in 2011. Losing in front of their home fans last year is an experience none of TRU’s player want to repeat. “I didn’t really like that feeling last year, coming up second, so I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that doesn’t happen again,” said Pack infielder/ pitcher Dillon Morgan, who finished the season with a 1.32 ERA and .373 batting average. Wynn, a Kamloops product, was a medical red shirt in 2010. He bounced back this season, posting a 5-0 record and recording a team-best 40 strikeouts. “I was injured last season, but I watched the final game,” said Wynn, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 212 pounds. “I know what the sting is like and we want to do everything we can to avoid it this year.”

Danny Moore of the TRU WolfPack shaves Mike Riddle’s head as part of rookie day on Tuesday, May 10, at NorBrock Stadium. The fun and games are over now.

Dream season gets better for Brown rink By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

What can Brown do for you? There isn’t much she can’t do when it comes to curling and the 15-year-old Kamloops product’s dream season was capped this week with a couple of honours from Curl BC. Corryn Brown was named Curl BC’s junior female athlete of the year and her rink — third Erin Pincott, second Samantha Fisher and lead Sydney Fraser — was named

team of the year. “My dad [Ken, the Brown rink’s coach] comes up to me, and I’m with Sam, and he shows me an e-mail that says you’ve been nominated for team of the year and also for junior female athlete and you won both. “He had a big smile on his face.” The South Kamloops secondary student had a smile on her face, too — and so she should have. In addition to the Curl BC awards, Brown was selected in April to play for

Team Canada at the inaugural Youth Winter Olympics in Innsbruck, Austria, next January. “It’s going to be a culture shock,” Brown said. “I had never been past Manitoba until this year.” Halifax, where the Brown rink won gold at the Canada Winter Games, and Toronto, where the girls placed fourth at the Optimist International under-18 Curling Championships, are not Austria, but those were still amazing trips.

The excursions might never have happened this year if it were not for curling. “I got to travel to do something I love,” Brown said. “It’s just awesome.” Rounding out the Brown rink’s major accomplishments this season was a gold medal at the provincial juvenile championship in March. Brown also skipped her high school rink — featuring Pincott, Fraser, Katie Lukow and Desiree Daley — to a provincial title in March.

All four 15-year-old girls will compete for a third-straight juvenile crown next season. And, the formidable

rink plans to stick together for a while after that, at least until they age out of under20 junior competition,

Brown said. “We have such good team dynamics that we want to stay together as long as possible.”

DEVELOPMENT VARIANCE PERMIT HEARING Notice is hereby given that Council will consider issuance of Development Variance Permit 01-11 on TUESDAY, May 17, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. in the FIRE HALL Training Room, #1 Opal Drive, Logan Lake, for the property legally described as Lot 78, DL 2217, KDYD, Plan 30880 (276 Poplar Drive), to vary the provisions of Zoning Bylaw 675, Schedule C, Section “4-1 Except for uses in the C1 or C4 zones, off-street parking spaces shall be located on the same parcel as the use they serve”, by not requiring lot consolidation as the property has a covenant for parking; AND vary the provisions of Section “5-4 Parking spaces provided in the R5, C1, C2, C3, C4, C5 and M1 zones shall be hard surfaced with asphalt, concrete, brick or similar pavement so as to provide a surface that is durable and dust-free and shall be graded and drained as to properly dispose of all surface water”, by permitting a gravel surface for the said parking lot for a three year period from May 17, 2011 to May 17, 2014.

• At the bank even though you pay your premiums, the coverage is not guaranteed, as the underwriting is done at the time of claim. • Banks coverage decreases with every mortgage payment, but the premiums remain the same • The bank owns the policy, and if you die, only the bank gets paid • The bank can cancel the insurance at anytime • Private owned insurance is underwritten at time of issue and once approved it is guaranteed for as long as you pay the premiums • Privately owned insurance coverage never decreases and premiums remain level throughout the term period • Premiums are often lower than the bank • If you die with privately owned insurance, the death benefit is paid to your beneficiary who can use it as they see fit, not just to pay off the mortgage • Privately owned insurance cannot be cancelled, unless you request the cancellation in writing

These are some of the reasons mortgage insurance should be chosen carefully. So wouldn’t it be better to own your policy and maintain control? Before you sign anything, take a minute to look at our website carolgoddyn.com and click on the Mortgage Insurance heading tab and watch the video IN DENIAL.

Minor football season almost here STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The next Geroy Simon might be playing tetherball at a local elementary school today, but he will likely never mature into a passcatching all star unless Kamloops develops a high-quality minor football scene. Marty Gibbons, a Kamloops Community Football (KCF) director, is encouraging parents to take their children to the gridiron this season. “Some of the players that are coming up today haven’t had the chance to build their skills up,” Gibbons said. “That’s what our goal is — to have the kids go out, get some exercise, build some teamsmanship and build some skills.” Gibbons said parents are often misinformed about several aspects of minor football. “One of the biggest myths that we’re going against is that football is an expensive sport,” he said. “It’s $200 to play. All the kid has to do is bring himself and some cleats. “The other myth is that little guys can’t play. “We actually start them out at eight and play them right up until they get into high school ball.”

Gibbons said KCF is willing to accept sevenyear-old players, too. “No one gets turned away and everyone gets to play.” Both males and females are invited to sign up for KCF season. KCF is part of the Southern Interior Football Conference (SIFC), which includes, among others, teams from Kelowna, Westbank, Salmon Arm and Vernon. The SIFC season runs from August until October. Games are usually played once a week, but

there is the occasional doubleheader. On Saturday, May 14, and Sunday, May 15, the Kamloops Rugby Club (471 Chilcotin St.) will be open between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. for KCF registration. The cost to register for players between the ages of eight and 13 is $200. The fee for players between the ages of 14 and 18 is $250. Questions can be directed to Leesa Warner, leesawarner@ gmail.com, or KCF president Dave Arthurs, 250-828-8755.

Ko’s call home music to his ears

Clockwise from back left, Susan Bertoia, Barbara Pollard, Alison Kelly, Deborah Williams and Jill Daum perform in an earlier production of Mom’s The Word: Remixed, which comes to Western Canada Theatre next week. For the Kamloops performances, Bertoia — who portrays TRU theatre-arts teacher Robin Nichol — will be replaced by Beverley Elliot.

These moms are rock stars By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

H YES, NEW MOTHERHOOD. Robin Nichol remembers it well. Tiny baby, all those kitchy-cooing moments — dirty diapers, teething, neverending-unexplainable crying. “It was a lot like ‘Oh my god, I can’t believe this is my life’,” the theatre-arts instructor at Thompson Rivers University said. But, should Nichol’ children be reading this, she’s not referring to reality — much — but, rather, the little moments she shared with her new-mom friends in the theatre, those moments that gave birth to Mom’s The Word. The play was an instant hit when it was first staged in Vancouver and has gone on to be performed in many countries. Building on that foundation — and recognizing their 12 kids were getting older — Nichol and her friends created a sec-

ond work, Mom’s the Word 2: Unhinged. A third version — Mom’s the Word: Remixed — takes the best of both earlier works and creates a raucous trip through motherhood all the way to one of Nichol’s favourite moments, a song in the second act called Here Comes Menopause. Remixed will be at Sagebrush Theatre from May 18 to May 20, another bonus to Western Canada Theatre’s season that is being staged as a fundraiser. Remixed is a full-production stage show, a long way from those first performances of Mom’s the Word, times that were just Nichol and her friends “just up there talking, with a few props from Sally Ann.” Nichol isn’t in this version; she hasn’t had time to rehearse with her friends so someone else will have her role and she is helping as a script consultant. But, that doesn’t minimize how important Remixed is for her as she prepares to face another stage of motherhood: A child moves out of the nest to go to school. And it brings back fond memories

of the original one, when Nichol, Jill Daum, Alison Kelly, Deborah Williams, Linda Carson and Barbara Pollard would perform one night and be out with their infants the next day. “We were rock stars on the playground,” she said of the creation they did through Saturday-morning get-togethers to create a script, times that were more often than not taken up with laughing and crying at each other’s stories. Until deadline approached, giving them just three weeks to get it together for opening night. Ironically, Mom’s the Word ran at the Arts Club Theatre in Vancouver for nine months before taking off into the world, where it has been translated into 12 languages. Some lessons the moms took from their experiences: The best age for children is prenatal and, in response to if teens are easier or harder than babies, they agreed the answer has to be “Yes.” Tickets are $35 and are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.com.

ORONTO URBAN-FOLK ARTIST KO writes music from what he knows — and, so far, he knows the journey to recovery from drug addiction and life on the streets. “As I get older, I’ll experience better things, so I’ll write brighter things,” Ko said of his album, Let’s Blaze, released August 2009. Ko sold and consumed a variety of drugs, eventually living on the streets of San Francisco before making an addict’s most-difficult call — he phoned his family and asked for help. “I don’t want to forget,” Ko said of his experiences. He said he broke free of the lifestyle through a lot of support, a lot of love — and music. With support, he went to rehabilitation and started his music career in open-mic clubs, going several times a week. Since then, he has collaborated with artists like Snoop Dogg and De La Soul. Ko’s new outlook on life is a positive one. “You can’t give up when the bricks fall on your back,” Ko said.

Notes on: Matt Stanley and the Decoys ■ WHO: Matt Stanley and the Decoys includes Stanley — obviously — along with Jarrett Boyetchko on lead guitar, Brandon Donovan on bass and Sean Poissant on drums. Stanley also plays guitar and does lead vocals. As for that last couple of words, here’s how they ended up Decoys: “Before our first show in November of 2008, we still hadn’t chosen a name for the band. So, out of desperation, we sat around in our rehearsal space and passed around a dictionary. Each person would go to a random page and put their finger on a word,then they’d read a word out loud. We went around a couple of times and nothing seemed to actually work. Then our former drummer Rob Simpson had another turn and put his finger on the word decoy. It was the first word that actually worked as a band name — we liked it and it stuck.” ■ WHAT: The band is pretty much straight-up rock and roll with some alternative rock thrown in just to keep the audience hopping. Next month, they’re releasing a new recording that pretty much sums up their kind of music: Stripped, Bare, and on Display. It should be available online in June and in stores in early summer.

■ WHEN: Well, now, here’s the story: In 2006, Stanley broke from his old band and started working on his own. In the summer of 2008, that work led to him releasing a six-song EP of his own works. That led to a call from Boyetchko, who liked what he heard and wondered if Stanley needed a band. Boyetchko knew Donovan, Stanley knew Poissant and, at the end of the day, the Decoy was created. ■ WHERE: When they play Kamloops, most of the time they’re out in Brocklehurst at the Pogue Mahone Irish Alehouse, one of a few bars in town that really works hard to promote local musicians. But, the band has also headed out of town often for gigs in Kelowna and Vancouver.

■ WHY: Sometimes there’s a reason for a band to be together. Sometimes there’s not. Best way to sum up the existence of Matt Stanley and the Decoys? They’re musicians through and through. Heck, when he’s not jamming or peforming, Stanley’s teaching guitar, bass and drums. ■ HOW: How to follow them? Go online to mattstanleyandthedecoys. com, myspace.com/mattstanleysongs or facebook.com/ pages/Matt-Stanley-and-TheDecoys/158788897487642. Notes On is a feature that focuses on local musicians.

Choosing the safest car for your new driver By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC Many families wonder about the first car their teen will be driving when they turn 16, so we are often asked, “What’s the safest vehicle for my son/daughter to drive?” Generally, the safest cars are the newest cars. Vehicles have come along way in terms of crash-worthiness and have important safety additions such as front and side airbags. After all, new drivers are more likely to have a serious crash than more experienced drivers and the crashes that they are involved in are generally more severe. When talking to your teen, you may well

notice that your choices of vehicle will likely differ – this is often the case. Stick with the safety issue and don’t fall into the “coolness” factor when it comes to a vehicle your teen will be driving for at least the first two years of his or her driving career. Here are a few things to consider: 1. Size matters – a mid- or larger-sized vehicle can make the difference in a life and death crash. Many smaller cars that earn high crash ratings are being judged by how well they protect in a crash with a similar sized vehicle. Having said that, some large SUVs are also not an appropriate first car either as they can be difficult to maneuver in emergency situations.

2. Speed kills – Of course, teens want the sporty version of a car. This again plays into the “coolness” factor. However, teens are more likely to take risks behind the wheel of a vehicle that has the look of speed. The last thing you want is to encourage risk-taking. 3. Teens can pay too! – Always include your teen in the expense of purchasing a vehicle. Have them provide the gas and pay for insurance and any other expenses that may occur, such as oil changes and maintenance. This makes a new driver much more responsible. Car shopping for a teen can be a rewarding experience for a family. Make sure you take the time to work together as a team to provide the safest car you can afford. • Road Test Packages • Get 6 Months Off your ‘N’ • Get School Graduation Credits

Life a challenge Ko is up to X From B1

Recently prescribed percocet for a toothache, Ko said it was strange taking drugs for pain relief. He said people were worried about him taking the pills — even with his legitimate need for them — but he insists he only smokes marijuana. “I try to keep my nose clean,” Ko said, laughing. “I’m not a fan of drinking.” Ko appreciates how far he has come and said he thinks of his old life everyday. “It’s made my songwriting better,” Ko said of his experiences. “It’s also made me more equipped with some things I’ve seen on the road.” Ko said as a musician, he is confronted with drugs, but most people know what he’s been through and are sensitive to his lifestyle choice. “Occasionally, there’s a guy who’s like ‘Let’s do some coke’ and, when I say no, they can tell I’m serious.” Ko takes charge of

his destiny now, overseeing everything from the graphic design of his posters, to songwriting and social media. “I’m behind everyone, telling them what I like.” He plans to release four songs to his Canadian audience

after trying to promote Let’s Blaze in the United States. Singles Capable and Moving Mountains have received accolades in Canadian radio. He has teamed up with Daniel Wesley and Rebel Emergency on a 22-date Canadian

tour, The Joint Venture, which began early May in Ontario. The tour stops in Kamloops at The Blue Grotto, 319 Victoria St., on May 26. Tickets for the 19-plus show are $25 and are available at Long and McQuade, 955 Lorne St.

Lifestyle choices influence child’s mental health

D

ID YOU KNOW MAY IS MENTAL HEALTH MONTH? Of course you did, but you likely did not realize Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week and Building Day happened in May as well. What can you do to build a child’s mental health — even if you do not have one living in your house? Here are some other things you may not know: When exposed to a traumatic event, children as young as 18 months can have serious emotional and behavioural problems later in childhood and in adulthood. More than 35 per cent of children exposed to a single traumatic event will develop serious mental health problems. Young children exposed to five or more significant adversities in the first three years of childhood face a 76 per cent likelihood of having one or more delays in their cognitive, language or emotional development. The good news is we can reduce the impact of trauma on children when parents

show resilience, there are more social connections with others (like relatives, neighbours and friends), when there is knowledge in the family about child development and when families receive support in time of need. Each time a child experiences another traumatic event, the risk of mental illness in their adult life increases. Children who experience multiple traumas often experience a combination of symptoms including depression, alcoholism, drug abuse, suicide attempts, heart disease, high stress, uncontrollable anger, and of course, family, financial and job problems. If we want to focus on mental health, what can a parent do? For toddlers, encourage development through play, physical activity that encourages development of coordination and through laughter.

watching television for extended periods does not help children develop brain connections, language skills or relationship skills. For preschool kids, activities that help promote social skills, physical prowess, and creativity will be great ways to encourage mentally healthy growth. For school-age kids, limit TV, video games and computer time. Some time spent on these things is great, but too much is really, really bad. Pay attention to the changing needs, behaviour and moods of children because often kids cannot easily communicate the difficulties they are experiencing. For teenagers, just forget it, because by definition, they’re a lost cause.

Just kidding! At CMHA, we see

teens who come to our youth program as some of the most creative, eager to learn and interesting people on the planet. Their potential for skill development and eagerness for direction seem limitless. Teens are still developing brain power (in fact the brain continues to develop until mid-20s) so encourage them to use their minds and imagination. Drugs and alcohol are absolutely destructive to a developing brain, but rather than focus on this negative downer, (because teens will not) it is important to build a positive self-regard in your teen with messages of confidence and trust. Nobody said it would be easy, but it can be a great deal of fun, so enjoy your child — and even your teen — (or the child in you that never grew up) and tell us all about it at kamloops@ cmha.bc.ca because it is always great to hear from you.

FAITH

The open grave and the closed church

T

HE EXPRESSION, “GO AND TELL” (Matt.28:7; Mark 16:7) is a compelling and, at the same time, comforting benediction of Christ, conqueror of death, to his disciples or the church today. “Go and tell.” But, tell what? At the outset, it may be the good news they saw Jesus alive, but the resurrection has much more to report. The church has to assert the supreme authority of Christ that subdued or defeated the legitimate authority of the Roman rulers, the legalistic authority of religious leaders or the fake power of the devil. To every believer today, the resurrection of Christ gives meaning to his belief and sets the grammar for Christian living. When this revelation sinks deep in our conviction, the church will not stop from moving out to tell the world

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH Jesus is alive. Yes, the open grave reaffirms the ultimate authority of Christ over all worldly rule and power (1 Cor.15:24). Further, this authority revitalizes a vibrant relation not only with the Saviour but also with his resurrection power (1 Cor.6:14). Consequently, the statements, “all authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me,” or, “anyone who has faith in me will do what I have been doing, he will do even greater things,” (Jn.14:12) come alive. In another place Jesus said, “I will give you the keys of the

kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven” (Mt.16:19). We should not forget all these declarations establish a concrete foundation that the church, the body of Christ, is conferred with the authority of God. Because of the inward-looking mindset of the church, she believes she is powerless, and that leads to survival mentality, rather than maximizing the potential of members toward kingdom maturity. The church has shut herself in because of internal, external, political, structural and spiritual issues. Today, the church is not able to fully realize the strength she possess. Very often, the church gives a signal to the society that she is “afraid” and “full of doubts” (Jn.20:19; Mt.28:17).

The interesting phenomenon is that, even after admitting to these misleading expressions, she pretends to be bold, active and productive. Instead of accepting the setback, she tries to cover up by making a big noise and keeps herself busy with activities within the four walls. The New Testament testifies it is the will and command of the Lord that Jesus’ disciples and the church shall work as his witnesses in the world (Acts 1:8). It is unfortunate today’s church gives in to statistical reports, building architecture, and high-tech equipments as displays of their power and strength. It might be helpful to depict to the outside world that we are a community to be reckoned with. But, the reality is something different. In the early period of church establishment, people who were

in secular authority got confused and scared about a tiny group of Christians and pointed to them, saying: The people who have turned the world upside down have come here as well (Acts 17:6). That meant people around them saw a convincing boldness and power within the church that pushed them forward. The secret here is that, when the church yields herself to the lordship of Christ, she will join Paul in reiterating his words in Phil.2:9-11. When this truth grips the church, she will recognize the strength in her and won’t compromise her conviction for the sake of survival. The church, as a body, has a distinctive role to play in the society. She is called to be a community that brings glory to God through believing, living, and manifesting the reconciliation and redemption

of God. For this purpose, she was created through the death, resurrection and the reign of Christ which means her existence has eternal value. The church which is governed by the resurrection power will naturally reflect unity, mutual love, exemplary conduct, unquestionable hope, radiating joy of salvation and a sacrificial mercy ministry. These qualities have an infectious element within them by nature. Since society is eagerly looking forward to have a way out to experience the unity, peace, real love, deliverance from sin/sickness/slavery, the church is expected to bring answer to a severely wounded society. The church has no excuse because, in the mission perspective, she is not a missionarysending body, but is sent to the society as a missionary. In other words, the church moves beyond

the four walls and makes her presence felt meaningfully by involving herself in the mission of evangelism, justice and peace. To achieve that end, members of the church are released, equipped, and empowered by the Holy Spirit to fulfill their calling. In a society which is fast decaying, the church is the only community that can translate the kingdom message in an understandable way. The open grave reminds the church to come out of her inwardlooking mentality and be open to listen to the voice of God and appropriate the power of God so that she keeps herself open for people to experience the love of Christ and celebrate the everlasting kingdom.

THE GOLDEN, BUT EPHEMERAL, INCA CIVILIZATION By Hans Tammemagi SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

O

UR GUIDE SAID IT WAS PRONOUNCED SEXY WOMAN. She was referring to Sacsayhuaman, an impressive fortress on a hill overlooking Cuzco, Peru, erected over five centuries ago when the Incas ruled. Smiling at her comment, I wandered amongst towering walls made of huge rocks, some weighing more than 100 tonnes. I tried to imagine the religious ceremonies and bloody battles these silent stones had seen. This fortress is a remnant of the oncemighty Inca empire, which at its peak in the late 1400s stretched from southern Colombia to southern Chile, about 4,000 km. My goal was to visit the impressive monuments that dot this stretch. We descended to Cuzco, once the capital of the Inca empire. Both figuratively and literally breathless (at an elevation of 3,326 metres), I marvelled at the artistry and engineering skills of the Incas as I strolled through Coricancha, a temple built for the Sun God Inti. The temple walls and floors were once covered in sheets of gold and the courtyard was filled with solid gold statues. When Spanish conquistadors led by Francisco Pizarro arrived in 1553, they were dumbfounded to find such superior metallurgy, elegant architecture and wealth. The Spaniards proceeded to gut Cuzco and built the ornate Santo Domingo Cathedral and convent. The main square, which is lined with restaurants, shops, and old buildings with attractive balconies, was bustling. Indigenous women wore colourful shawls and bowler hats. We drove into the Sacred Valley and, with the snow-capped Andes glistening in the sun to the east, followed a dirt road to Moray, about 75 kilometres from Cuzco. A series of sinuous terraces are laid out

in concentric circles and arcs on a hillside so they mimic different climatic zones. We watched an archaeological excavation, where a scientist explained that with a temperature difference between the top and bottom of about 15 C, Moray was probably an agricultural laboratory that was used to help develop food for the empire. The Incas, who ate little meat, grew more than 20 varieties of corn and 240 varieties of potatoes. Our next stop, Maras, is renowned as the oldest and most unusual salt mine in the world. It consists of about 2,000 small pools that glisten like a surreal white honeycomb along the valley bottom. Water from a saline-rich stream is directed into the pools, where water evaporates leaving salt, which is shovelled into bags. I was amazed at the simplicity of the operation, which is still “mined” as it was in the Inca days. The flow of water is controlled by a man who meanders about, raising and lowering piles of rocks placed like dams in the network of channels. As we travelled through mountainous country toward Machu Pichu, I was impressed by the administrative skills of the Incas. They constructed an extensive road network including two main roads that ran the length of the empire, one in the highlands and one along the seacoast. All travel was by foot, nevertheless, they achieved excellent communication by using trained runners, who carried quipus, i.e. several coloured strings knotted in different positions conveying numeric and other information. It was the closest the Incas came to writing. I stifled a scream as the bus careened around a hairpin turn and clung on desperately as we dodged downward bent buses on our ascent up an absurdly steep mountain to Machu Pichu. But the scare was

quickly forgotten as I walked through what Condé Nast magazine considers the world’s number one tourist attraction. Stone buildings, temples and terraces, overwhelming in their elegance and size, lay before me arrayed high on the side of a frighteningly precipitous mountainside. This architectural masterpiece is in perfect balance with its surroundings and is also aligned with the sun’s orbit. The structures are built of chiselled boulders that fit pefectly without using cement and are extraordinarily stable, an important feature in an earthquake-prone area. Abandoned by the Incas when the Spanish invaded, Machu Pichu was not rediscovered until 1911. With my back resting against an enormous sun-warmed boulder and the splendour of Machu Pichu laid out before me, I wondered at life’s ephemerality. The mighty Inca empire was built in just under a century. But, it crumbled as the conquistadors lust for riches led to treachery and cruelty. In a decade, they destroyed one of the most advanced societies in the world. Now only these amazing, silent stones remain.

Flaking out with fieldberry pie

I

MADE A TERRIBLE MISTAKE. FOLLOWED BY ANOTHER. First, I bought Martha Stewart’s new Pie and Tarts book. Then, at my favourite discounter of housewares, a ceramic pie dish. Next thing I knew, all the ingredients for a pie showed up in a grocery bag and my husband fixed me with a look DARCIE HOSSACK that required no words to pass Bon between us. APPÉTIT Just pie. There are two reasons I haven’t made a pastry crust for almost 20 years. (A figure that puts me all the way back in high school home economics class.) My first excuse for shying away from

pastry crust is that there’s a seat at the next Weight Watchers meeting with my name on it, if I do. Second, pastry is tricky. It requires patience. That you both stalk up to it with a certain swagger, yet treat it like the diva of the bakeshop that it is. Pastry, in other words, has personality. It requires all ingredients and implements be ice cold, suffers no one with warm hands and, if over-manipulated even a little, turns irreversibly tough. But, for someone who spends as many words as I do, writing about food as though I know exactly what I’m doing, 20 years without producing a single crust is a shameful amount of time. It came to an end yesterday, though, when a fieldberry pie emerged from my oven at 8 p.m., seven hours after first setting a bowl and pastry blender in the fridge to chill. Then, with butter almost too cold to work with and cream cheese to predispose the dough towards a bit of forgiveness, I

cut the fat into the flour and salt until no crumble was larger than half an inch. Correcting for a typo in Martha’s recipe (two tablespoons of liquid simply cannot bring together anything that begins with three cups of flour: A fact confirmed by her other recipes) the crumble was sprinkled with ice water and cider vinegar, pressed, patted into two disks, chilled and rolled. Folded into the pie plate, filled with sugared berries, covered, crimped, vented, egg washed, sugared, chilled again and finally baked until golden brown. For five more hours the pie sat cooling. Overnight in the fridge. Back on the counter top to reach room temperature before dessert the next evening. And how did it turn out? Perfection. Flakey, tender perfection. Honestly, I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner. Oh right. Reason No. 1. nicefatgurdie.wordpress.com. onepotato2potato@shaw.ca.

Preheat oven to 400 ° F. In a large bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Cut in butter and cream cheese using a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, with pieces up to 1/2 inch. Combine vinegar and ice water. Sprinkle over crumbs, stirring, until mixture just begins to hold its shape when squeezed. Divide crumbs in half and place each amount on a length of plastic film and wrap tightly. Press wrapped dough into a disk using a rolling pin. Refrigerate for at least one hour. On lightly floured surface, roll out the first disk to 13-inches. Fit into a nine-inch pie plate. In a large bowl, toss frozen berries together with sugar, cornstarch, cinnamon and lemon. Allow to thaw. Stir and heap into pie shell. Roll out second crust and fit over top. Trim and crimp or flute edges, then cut six three-inch vents in crust. Beat together yolk and cream. Brush over surface and edges of pie (some will be leftover: discard). Sprinkle generously with sugar. Chill for 30 minutes. Transfer pie to a baking sheet and into oven. Bake 20 minutes, reduce temperature to 350 ° F and bake 55 more. Cool completely on a wire rack before serving.

HANK YOU ALL Kamloopsians! It is well known Kamloopsians are notoriously slow in buying tickets for any event in town. Many an event organizer has torn out his or her hair during sleepless nights, worrying whether the concert will go ahead with dozens of empty seats, only to find themselves out of tickets — as well as hair — at the last minute. This makes the fifth annual Celebrating Survival dinner on May 27 all the more amazing as all 350-plus tickets have been sold out since before they even went on sale — all this in support of the Kamloops Brain Injury Association (KBIA). Of course, reputation has a lot to do with this success. Dr. Gur Singh and his wife, Manju, always come up with a spectacular event, with great food and fantastic entertainment. The decorations themselves are often worth the price of admission. Then there is the cause. The KBIA is well recognized in the community for all the great work it does providing specialized services to survivors of brain injury and their families and caregivers. The KBIA also offers education and

TERRY-LYNN STONE View from the KBIA prevention information to the public — either at schools, in the park or at special events. However, the quick ticket sales are only half the story. The other half is the wonderful donors and sponsors who provide funds for a great cause. Once again, BMO, the Bank of Montreal, is taking the lead by being the presenting sponsor. HMZ Law, Zimmer Autosport, Platinum Realty, Daley & Company Chartered Accountants and MJB Law are all platinum sponsors. But, it doesn’t end there. We have a reception sponsor (Chances), a wine sponsor (Acres Enterprises), an entertainment sponsor (Excel Industries) and a decorations sponsor (Darlen Ventures Ltd.). There are, of course, many other sponsors and donors but, if I listed them, this entire column would be a list of names. There are the media sponsors, those who provide fantastic donations for the silent and

Give the gift of life Canadian Blood Services is calling on Kamloops residents to make an extra effort to donate blood this month. The blood agency is launching a new blood-donor clinic schedule that will offer more choice and convenience for Kamloops donors. “Last year, we visited Kamloops 13 times; this year we’ll be coming 19 times,” said Kamloops-area community development co-ordinator Tamara Sweet. “By running our clinics more frequently, we trust Kamloops donors will have more options to choose from when booking their blood donor appointments.” Upcoming clinics at Calvary Community Church (1205 Rogers Way) will be held on May 16 (1 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.), May 17 (noon to 7 p.m.), May 18 (10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.), May 30 (1 p.m. to 5:45 p.m.), May 31 (noon to 7 p.m.) and June 1 (10 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.).

live auctions, those who design the posters, those who print them and, of course, those who attend. We are so very lucky to live in such a caring, devoted town; a town that supports those less fortunate, especially those who often fall through the socialnetwork cracks just because their condition is misunderstood. We at the KBIA sincerely thank everyone

involved in this event — those who organize it, those who run it, those who sponsor it and those who simply enjoy it. Thank you, too, for buying your tickets early!

LeafSource stops woman’s pain within days! “It works! I’ll take another two bottles please!” This coming from a customer who had tried every other natural remedy under the sun in the past few years to take away her pain. Ian, the owner of the health food store couldn’t believe his ears. He had finally found the perfect product to stop his customer’s miseries. This is what every owner of a health food store dreams about, a natural product that receives so many outstanding testimonials on such a wide variety of health issues. “I had recommended a new product called LeafSource, which we recently started carrying. We have had tremendous success with this product, and almost everyone we have recommended it to over the last few months has come back and thanked us over and over again” said Ian. Before trying LeafSource, the woman had complained about her ongoing joint pain and was at her wit’s end. Although she had experienced some relief through the numerous natural remedies she had tried over the years, the pain would never fully go away. “She returned to my store, in tears, less than one week after buying LeafSource. I didn’t know what to make of this woman standing in front of me crying, until she told me that within a few days of taking LeafSource her pain started to disappear and within a week it was completely gone as if it was never there.” Ian goes on, “This coming from a woman whose painful joints and ongoing sciatica were so bad just one week earlier, that the pain was unbearable but now has completely subsided.” By now you are probably wondering what is LeafSource and why is it so effective? LeafSource is a 100% natural product derived from a proprietary organic mineral composite with over ten years of university research. LeafSource helps regulate the inflammatory process and the body’s ability to repair itself. The vast majority (70 - 80%) of the population over the age of 50 have joint problems — often called osteoarthritis. This is due to the natural (or unnatural) wear and tear on joint tissue that develops

through the aging process. With joint inflammation, movement is limited and pain can be constant. LeafSource seems to have the ability to help people get their mobility and zest for life back. Millions of people seek treatment for their joint and inflammation problems by resorting to expensive, toxic prescription drugs (i.e. NSAIDs) with multiple side effects. These range from nausea and vomiting to serious intestinal disorders (bleeding, gas, pain) and even kidney and liver failure. Isn’t that too large a price to pay for a little pain relief!? LeafSource is a safe alternative to these destructive anti-inflammatory drugs that cause more problems than they solve. There are absolutely no side effects and it doesn’t interfere with any other medications. Controlled experiments and observations have revealed that LeafSource is a potent anti-inflammatory that has been shown to bring a reduction to inflammation and pain within a few days. People notice great results in terms of more energy and less pain by taking anywhere from 2 to 6 capsules/day. Typical maintenance is usually 1 capsule twice daily. This product gets results! LeafSource is scientifically validated through more than 10 years of research at 4 universities, including the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Mercer University. Aside from its incredible anti-inflammatory and pain reducing ability, it has also been shown to improve the performance of your daily nutrition and vitamin programs. It helps increase the absorption of vital nutrients, which in turn helps these nutrients work better. Better absorption = better results! It’s almost as if they have become supercharged! LeafSource has also been shown to help enhance energy levels, improve intestinal health, strengthen hair, skin and nails and improve immune function. To see someone go from intense pain to a new lease on life within a week is truly incredible. Imagine being able to move freely without pain. Who wouldn’t want to get out of bed in the morning with more energy? It’s amazing how much of this stuff we take for granted, until it’s gone! Ian adds, “I often recommend that LeafSource be taken with other natural joint products in order to help them work better and provide even faster relief. One of the things I hear most often from people

Nature’s Fare Markets Live Well. Live Organic.

#5 - 1350 Summit Drive, Kamloops, BC 250-314-9560

who have tried LeafSource is they just plain feel better, have more energy and less pain. We’re so confident, we guarantee LeafSource 100%! That alone should be enough to try this incredible product.”

Shame on you, Capricorn. You get so caught up in your own troubles that you let down a friend. Work quickly to make amends. A debt is repaid.

Budgetary issues can no longer be avoided. Take the time to sort them out, Aquarius, and make an effort to get ahead and stay ahead. A phone call stirs up controversy.

You like to help, but sometimes you go overboard, Pisces. Lend your ear to a friend, but don’t go out on a limb for them. This is their problem.

The solution you seek is near, Aries. It is not what you were hoping for, however, which may explain why you have yet to see it. Flowers bring cheer.

Knuckle down, Taurus. Hard work is key to getting out of the pickle you’re in. A snide remark makes it clear that all is not right at home. Start poking around.

The emotional roller coaster ride you’ve been on comes to an end, leaving you calmer and more in control. Celebrate with a night on the town, Gemini.

Keep at it, Cancer. You’re on the verge of a breakthrough. A move you made some time ago backfires. Someone you least expect comes to your rescue.

Hang on, Leo. Ditch that invite, and you’ll regret it. Yes, you’re busy, but this is one event you don’t want to miss. The contacts alone will make it worthwhile.

You’re too kind for your own good, Virgo. It’s ok to get angry now and then and let others know you’re not their rug to step on. A deadline is moved up.

September 23– October 22

October 23– November 21

You’re usually on top of your game, but not this week, Libra. Give the reins to someone else and take a break. It will do you good. A fitness goal is reached.

Pack your bags, Scorpio. A loved one is about to whisk you away on the adventure of a lifetime. Don’t forget your camera. You’ll definitely want to capture what’s coming.

You’re not in the doghouse yet, Sagittarius. Take steps now to turn things around and get back in the good graces of everyone November 22– involved.

KARRIE SANDRA MAYHEW (nee Keech)

DAVID LEWIS

It is with sad and heavy hearts that the family of Donald Way MacArthur announce his passing from the world minutes after midnight,Thursday May 5, 2011, in Kamloops, BC. It was in the wondrous care of the amazing staff at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House that he finally lost his battle with cancer. Having survived a previous battle with colon cancer, and living in good health over the last few years, it was of great surprise when he was diagnosed with aggressive cancer, only a few short weeks ago.

June 20, 1947 – May 3, 2011

July 13, 1941 – May 8, 2011

Donald was bom December 9, 1929 in Brandon, Manitoba to his loving parents, James and Lavada MacArthur. Though he was born in Manitoba, it was in BC that he spent the bulk of his life. Living in Kitimat, Prince George, Prince Rupert,Victoria and Kamloops, Donald traveled around the province through the course of his career as a member of the RCMP, with 25 years service, and later, 20 years service as a liquor inspector for the province’s Liquor Control & Licensing Branch. It was in Prince George where he started his family, but it was Kamloops where he finally settled his roots.

With great sadness Karrie left us peacefully with daughter Roxie and granddaughter by her side. Residing at Overlander Extended Care since 2009, she kept staff on their toes, and was well taken care of. Thank you to all staff. Karrie will be remembered dearly by a quick witted sense of humor, down to earth ways, love of pets, and the outdoors. Karrie was predeceased by David Mayhew in 1997 and Amanda in 2009.

DONALD WAY MacARTHUR December 9,1929 to May 5, 2011

John was born in Kelowna and always held a soft spot in his heart for the Interior of British Columbia. As a young man, he left British Columbia in 1951 to join the Royal Canadian Mounted Police. And soon after, he met Fem and they married (in 1956). John and Fern returned to BC and were posted to many communities within the province, making life long friends along the way. The final RCMP posting was Kamloops in 1974, where John and Fern bought their first and only house, and finished raising their girls. John finally retired in 1987 with over thirty years of service. Following that career, John drove school bus for 10 years, where he frequently gave the students tickets for making too much noise. He truly had enforcement in his blood. John had many interests including hunting and fishing, most notably though was bee keeping which he did for many years. His “Kamloops Honey” was the absolute best. Our Dad was a man of honesty and integrity and we will miss him more than words can ever express. We were more than fortunate to have him as our father. We will miss you Dad. All of our love, your girls. There will be a memorial service on Saturday, May 14th at 2 pm at Schoening Funeral Home, 513 Seymour St. Kamloops, BC (5th & Seymour). Please feel free to express your condolences at www.schoenings.com

For those wishing, a donation may be made in Dave’s memory to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Cres. S, Kamloops, BC. V2E 2S9

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the ³elds of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush

October 15, 1930-May 7, 2011

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of John Niblock in his 80th year.

Through the course of his years, Donald enjoyed fishing, hunting, wood working, watching curling, football, hockey (he was an avid Kamloops Blazers fan and Season ticket Holder for years) and movies. Though, no matter what he was interested in, the thing he loved the most in life was his family. Regardless how gruff or terse he would seem, one could never mistake the love and pleasure in his eyes when his grand and great grandchildren were around.

IN MEMORIAM

Rise Up Slowly . . .

JEFFREY JOHN DANIEL CRADDOCK Sept. 14, 1978 – May 14, 2005

Do not leave me here, alone, Where the warmth of mortal essence Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

We miss you Jeff…. As the years go by we have had to accept what we can’t change. We move forward, but our tears are still fresh and every so often we turn and look back just in case you are there, we will never forget who you were…. In our memories you are near, loved and longed for always …….. Love Mom & Dave, Jacqui Sarah & Jackson XOXOXO

Rise up slowly, Angel. I cannot let you go. Just drift softly ‘midst the faces, In sorrow now bent low.

Speak to me in breezes, Whispered through the drying leaves, And caress my brow with raindrops Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Ease the searing anger, Rise up slowly, Angel, ..... Born in harsh, unyielding truth For I cannot hear the song That Death could steal my loved one Which calls you through the From the glowing blush of youth. shadows Rise up slowly, Angel. Into the light beyond.

Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the fields of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling flight.

I am the start-shine of the night. I am in the flowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there – I did not die.

Wrap me in a downy cape Of sunshine, warm with love, And kiss a tear-stained mother’s face With moonlight from above. Then, wait for me at sunset, Beside the lily pond, And guide me safely homeward To your world, which lies beyond. Just spread your arms to take me In reunion’s sweet embrace, And we shall soar, together, To a different time and place.
