RENDEN DUECK HAS never really fancied himself much of a writer, but that might change. That’s because the 12-year-old Grade 6 student at Dufferin elementary penned a Remembrance Day essay that is now on its way to Ottawa. The 331-word piece took top spot in the junior category of the provincial Royal Canadian Legion Poster, Essay and Poetry Contest and is now headed to nationals. Dueck’s essay describes a war veteran

The city will get a look next week at what the new co-ed shelter in the former Rendezvous Hotel site will look like. The project, estimated to cost about $2.5 million, will eventually have about four-dozen beds to provide shelter for men and women in separate, secure areas. Spearheading the project is the Kamloops branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). BC Housing is providing the cash for what will eventually be known as Emerald Centre. CMHA executive director Doug Sage said that, if the city approves the rezoning required for the facility, he’s hoping to have the renovation complete and the centre open by late fall. The goal is to also accommodate various needs of the homeless, so, while it is largely a segregated facility, there will be some spaces available for spouses. “One of the things that keeps couples sleeping on the riverbank is the fact they can’t stay together in a shelter,” Sage said. The designs being submitted also allow for accessibility by the physically disabled. There will also be space available for families for the same reason, Sage said, and rooms to be used for transitional housing for women who may not yet meet the clean-and-sober requirement of the Y Women’s Emergency Shelter, something the new facility will not require. Safety has been a priority — not just the locks and alarms required, but creating a sense of safety as well, something Sage said is particularly important to homeless women. The design includes separate men’s and women’s entrances, with steam-like showers at each entrance to reduce the possibility of bedbugs or lice entering the centre. The plans will go to city council to consider the rezoning application at its April 19 meeting.

KAMLOOPS

THIS WEEK

Kamloops shines among continents’ cities By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

After getting a less-thanimpressive rating on a national best-of list, the Tournament Capital has come out on the other side of an international survey. Foreign Direct Investment Magazine, a branch of the Financial Times, has ranked Kamloops ninth on a list of North and South American cities in its Americas Cities of the Future 2010/11 competition.

Essentially, the competition ranks which cities are best for future investment. For Venture Kamloops, the economic-development arm of the city, the ranking allows the organization to promote the city as a great place to invest. “Our ranking is very significant,” said Anita Grover, Venture Kamloops’ economic-development manager. She said the ranking can be used as a marketing tool to get the interest of people who have not

thought about Kamloops as a place to invest. “To break the top 10 is wonderful,” Grover said. “We had not done that in the past.” The ranking looked at 405 cities across North and South America and evaluated them in seven categories: Economic potential, human resources, cost effectiveness, quality of life, infrastructure, business friendliness and foreign direct investment (FDI) promotion strategy.

Kamloops was recognized in the micro-cities category for communities with a population less than 100,000. In the survey, the Tournament Capital finished second for its FDI and fifth for its cost competitiveness. Last month, Kamloops received a less-than-inspiring score of 106 on MoneySense Magazine’s 2011 list of Canada’s 180 Best Places to Live. At the time, Mayor Peter Milobar said he didn’t read too

much into the Moneysense survey — and he echoed the same sentiment when discussing the latest gauge of the city. “You always want to be on the positive side of any of these,” he said, but added he’s not going to “jump through hoops” over the ranking. However, Milobar said the survey does back up what both the city and Venture Kamloops have been saying for quite some time — Kamloops is a competitive, costeffective place for business.

Judge won’t release suspect in cellphone thefts By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A New Westminster man alleged to have travelled to Kamloops with a group of crooks to steal smartphones from electronics stores can’t be trusted to abide by bail conditions, a judge has ruled. Christian Carlo Santos was denied bail in Kamloops provincial court on Tuesday, April 12. The 24-year-old was arrested alongside five associates on Sunday, April 10, after the group allegedly stole more than a dozen IPhones and BlackBerries from a Sahali retailer. Crown prosecutor Chris Balison called them an organized group of thieves. “The Crown is alleging a crime ring, essentially,” he said. “These six people worked in concert with each other to pull off significant thefts in electronics stores during business hours.” Court heard an employee at Andre’s Audiotronic on Notre Dame Drive called police just after 3 p.m. on Sunday, after a customer alerted staff to a group of men apparently stealing smartphones. The men are alleged to have entered the store in two groups — one of which browsed product while the other went to a locked cabinet.

Balison said one man in the group targeting the locked cabinet was wearing a backpack. “Others surround him, essentially putting up a shield to anyone to view what they’re doing,” he said. Court heard an Andre’s employee followed the six suspects as they fled in two vehicles — a Toyota Camry and a Toyota 4-Runner — to the Save-OnFoods parking lot on Columbia Street. Police arrived at about 3:20 p.m. and arrested the men. Using serial numbers, police were able to trace 14 smartphones — seven IPhone 4s and seven BlackBerries — found in the vehicles back to Andre’s inventory, Balison said. Also found in the vehicles, court heard, were GPS units, PlayStation 3 games and accessories, computers and other cellphones. As Santos was being booked into jail, Balison said, police found a piece of paper in his pocket listing the names and addresses of electronics stores in Kamloops and Kelowna. Court also heard Santos has a history of committing similar offences, having pleaded guilty in February to charges stemming from a short-lived crime

spree on Vancouver Island. On Sept. 12, 2010, Santos and five others — including one of the other men arrested on Sunday — hit a Canadian Tire, WalMart and Real Canadian Superstore in Nanaimo. “They attended as a group and essentially damaged items in the store — removed security equipment — so they could come back

later and steal those high-value items,” Balison said. “He [Santos] has a history of doing this. He will continue to do this.” Santos was on bail when he was arrested on Sunday, facing outstanding theft charges from Richmond. Defence lawyer Sheldon Tate proposed a bail plan which would have seen Santos’ moth-

No. 6 in a series

“Mr. Santos’ occupation, as I would describe right now, is one of a minor thief. It seems to me that he has one business and that is stealing the property of others.” Also arrested on Sunday were Parker Allan Adams, 20, Connor Stephen Adamus, 19, Bajraj Gill, 23, Norbert Kovacs, 20, and Brandon Anthony

Think Local

Winters, 19. All six are facing charges of theft over $5,000 and possession of stolen property over $5,000. Adams is also facing a pair of breach charges. Adamus, Gill and Kovacs have since been released from custody. Santos is scheduled to return to court on Monday for an arraignment hearing.

Looking for a Lincoln Kamloops Mounties are on the lookout for a stolen Lincoln from Alberta after the driver of the vehicle managed to get away from police during a chase on the North Shore early Wednesday (April 13). RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said an officer making patrols in Batchelor Heights spotted a suspicious vehicle coming from Lac du Bois Road at about 3 a.m. and checked its Alberta plates, learning they were stolen. The officer tried to pull the late-model Lincoln MKZ over. It stopped briefly and one male passenger got out, then the car drove off again. Learned said the Lincoln sped away from police in the area of Jasper and Alberni avenues. The passenger who exited the vehicle was later questioned and released without charges. The Lincoln was last seen bearing Alberta plates BCCC3013. Anyone who sees the vehicle can call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

er, with whom he lives in New Westminster, provide a $5,000 cash deposit or a $10,000 surety for his release. Kamloops provincial court Judge Chris Cleavely, however, didn’t buy it. “In this situation, I can’t trust Mr. Santos,” he said. “And, I think Mr. Santos’ mother’s loyalty is misguided if she is to be his surety.

THEY CAME,THEY BUILT,THEY DEBATED When KTW invited the five local federal-election candidates to take part in a political debate while playing the tower-stacking game of Jenga, we weren’t sure what the response would be. To their credit, each candidate took part and had a wonderful time playing while asking tough policy questions of each other. Each Jenga game piece had a colour and policy printed on it (bottom right photo). When a candidate pulled a game piece, they asked a question relating to that policy and directed it to the appropriate candidate. There were six categories: Taxes, defence, environment, health care, Kamloops and wildcard, the latter meaning a non-political question was posed. Such questions led to the revelation Liberal candidate Murray Todd acquired his pilot’s licence before his driver’s licence. Those taking part were, in photo to the left, Todd, Chris Kempling (Christian Heritage), Michael Crawford (NDP), Donovan Cavers (Green) and Cathy McLeod (Conservative). To watch your candidates in all there dexterous glory, you can view the video now at kamloopsthisweek.com. Dave Eagles photos/KTW

“The government topples!” quipped NDP candidate Michael Crawford when, after 40 minutes and numerous rounds of questions, the Jenga tower finally collapsed as Conservative candidate Cathy McLeod was tasked with removing one more piece from the increasingly rickety structure.

Great conditions, so-so crowds Like the chairlifts, ski season was up-and-down By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The ski season at Sun Peaks Resort is over, but you wouldn’t know it by all snow still blanketing the runs. However, the unusually late winter at the resort is a fitting end to an up-and-down year for the renowned ski hill. Tourism Sun Peaks president Christopher Nicolson said the numbers aren’t final, but the resort will likely end up seeing flat growth for the 20102011 season. “We would certainly like to see more growth,� he said, noting the numbers are still decent compared to other winter resorts in the province. He said the first half of the season — in December and January — was strong, but business trailed off in the last couple of months. However, the numbers picked up again in late March, along with the snow conditions on the mountain. Nicolson said the resort did expect a bit of a dip this year, suggesting the market is still being affected by concerns in the global economy. Though Sun Peaks may have stayed even for the season, that can’t be said for some of the hoteliers in the rural area. At the Heffley Boutique Inn, business this season was down 15 to 20 per cent, according to owner Manfred Kasprzik. “It was completely unexpected � he said

adding the hotel was hoping to see a postOlympic boost that never materialized. Instead, Kasprzik said, it was an up-anddown season, much like that experienced at Sun Peaks. The hotel’s numbers were at near-record highs in the first half of the season — and at near-record lows in the latter half of the season. Kasprzik believes the weather, more specifically the handful of cold snaps that whipped through the resort during the win-

ter, contributed to a disappointing season. “It didn’t encourage people to come out skiing,� he told KTW. Though the weather at Sun Peaks may have been up and down like a chairlift, it was near-perfect at Harper Mountain, the family resort 25 minutes from Kamloops. Harper general manager Norm Daburger, said 2010-2011 was a great season, though not quite a record year for the mountain above Paul Lake. “We had good snow conditions. We had

good attendance,� he said, adding the mountain lost very few days to bad weather. He said Harper Mountain’s success tends to rest on the weather. As for Sun Peaks, the resort now looks ahead to summer. Besides offering a bevy of activities, from golf to mountain biking, the resort is adding more events to attract yearround visitors. Some of those include a wine and culture festival in July and the annual Music in Mountains festival in August.

Dave has an Eagle eye that is appreciated by the city

T

ODAY’S COLUMN IS brought to you courtesy of technical woes and the local branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association (CMHA). It features a colleague here at KTW, photographer Dave Eagles. Now, let me state I am writing this as a favour to CMHA branch executive director Doug Sage — and not to necessarily promote Eagles, because I’ll never hear the end of it from him. Apparently, Doug and the others at the CMHA office think Dave’s great. They love his photography, they love his compassion and they love his dedication. That’s why they gave him an award at the recent Kamfest — and this is where the technical problems come in. It seems these good folks prepared a video of Dave’s work shooting photographs to accompany stories we have done here at KTW on the homeless in the city. They even had a song composed by Kamfest headliner Dominic Miller playing in the background, aptly titled David. However, something went awry and the plan to drag Eagles up on stage — we had assigned him to shoot the event, leaving him to think that was why he was there — and play the video as he stood in front of the sold-out audience of about 700 at Sagebrush Theatre fell flat. In the end, the award was placed on a table in the lobby, alongside ones given to the United Steelworkers here in Kamloops

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL for community service and to Dr. George Wiehahn, who was given the award for public education. That’s how Dave learned about receiving the Greg Jones Memorial Award for the Arts — he showed up at the theatre, asked me what I wanted shot and I suggested getting one of the awards. It was kind of fun watching him go over to the table start looking around for the perfect shot. I hovered so he couldn’t leave and look for something more interesting in his lens. And, then, he saw it. Days after Kamfest, Doug and CMHA co-worker Shelley Trudeau came up to our office to officially give Dave the plaque — bearing pizza to ensure those of us who work with him every day would still show up — and to talk about why Dave was chosen. This is where the favour to Doug comes in because he really wanted to extol Dave’s virtues publicly. Doug wanted to tell people that, when he looks at Dave’s photography, he doesn’t just see an image.

He sees what our language cannot adequately describe when it comes to mental illness. He feels what Dave hopes others will feel when they look at his work. He gets the message without having anyone try to explain it to him. And, it’s not just the homeless photos that got CMHA’s attention. Doug told us — we were still there really just for the pizza — that one of his favourite photos shows MLA Rich Coleman surrounded by media, each reporter having a skeptical look on their face as if to say they really weren’t buying the stuff Coleman was trying to sell. Even a simple cheque presentation looks unique because Dave tries different angles or settings, Doug said. That’s what Kamfest is all about, he added. It’s about sharing and educating and understanding. It’s about coming together to have some fun — Miller was phenomenal — and to honour folks like the Steelworkers and the good doctor and, yes, Dave. To us who work with him, what was being recognized was just Dave doing his thing. We’ve all been out on assignments with him so much that we pretty much take for granted what he does. I think Dave also often takes his own work for granted. So, it was good to hear that the way he fills his workday, the care he just naturally puts into his work, is not only seen, but appreciated and recognized. The pizza was darn good, too.

Voters are used to politicians breaking, or not fulfilling, the promises made during election campaigns. For 36 days, Canada’s federal leaders are crisscrossing the country expressing their devotion to Canadians, trying to woo support of voters — many of whom would rather not be having another election. This time, Stephen Harper’s Conservatives have made some promises that would actually benefit ordinary Canadians. A $2.5-billion tax cut to allow income-sharing between parents with children, a $275-million fitness credit for adult taxpayers and an increase to the annual limit Canadians can deposit into taxfree savings accounts, to $10,000 from $5,000. But, all three promises come with a clever catch. All have the proviso that they wouldn’t be enacted until the federal budget is balanced. Don’t hold your breath. With this year’s budget $29.3 billion in the red, most analysts predict it will take four to five years to balance the books. And, that’s assuming there aren’t any extraordinary expenses like another recession, natural disasters or an international crisis. Canadians may never see the Tories’ pledges come to fruition. Even if they win a majority this time, those promises likely wouldn’t be enacted until the waning days of their mandate. Nevertheless, these conditional promises are a clever strategy. They come with a built-in excuse so Harper can never be criticized for breaking them. And, they’re a ready-made platform for the next election campaign — a seductive enticement for voters anxious to keep a little more cash in their pockets to tune out or forget about the conditions attached to those tax breaks when they mark their ballots.

Re: A city voters society is born: “A very good idea and welcome news, indeed. “Mayor Peter Milobar and company have created some serious concerns regarding lack of meaningful consultation — and the parkade-in-the-park is a good starting point. “Thank you, Chris Ortner, and I wish you and your group good luck.” — posted by Dorite

Give citizens the right to protect their loved ones Editor: I have just read that our RCMP want to trade in their shotguns for rifles with large capacity magazines because they find, under the present circumstances, they need them. Now, I don’t doubt our main frontline of defence provided by our government needs more firepower to combat crime. It’s strange, though, when we have been told crime is on the decline. What concerns me is the automatic response we hear from their spokespeople that they don’t want people to “take things into their own hands,” even when they are

not available to protect us. Would they not be very happy to have honest citizens, who are properly trained in the use of self-defense, help in the preservation of life? Perhaps all Canadians should be offered training so they can properly protect themselves while they are waiting for a response to their 911 call. If the RCMP sees the need for “proper tools” to protect their lives, what about the Canadian citizens who have to wait for a police response? Instead of making it harder for honest citizens to have “proper tools” to protect themselves, perhaps the powers-that-be

Atheist ads on city buses ‘disgraceful’ and ‘insulting’ Editor: Re: (‘Atheist transit ads in Kamloops a first in B.C.,’ April 1): For BC Transit to say it had no choice but to accept the advertising policy is a lame excuse.

I hope the RCMP understands I will protect my life and the lives of my loved ones by whatever means available to me — as would every officer. Chris Gilmore Logan Lake

The Provincial Festival would love your help! Editor: As many readers will be aware, the Kamloops Festival of the Performing Arts is hosting the Provincial Festival from June 5 to June 9. During that week, more than 400 of the most talented young musicians, dancers and speech/dramatic-arts performers from the 34 festivals throughout our province will perform in at least nine venues in Kamloops, most bringing along their parents and teachers. They will perform, compete, attend workshops and enjoy Kamloops — and all performances will be open to the public. An event of this magnitude requires a great deal of

I am writing this letter as a plea for help in two specific areas: ■ We need to be able to provide the music performers with a place to practice and rehearse with their accompanists. If you have a piano in your home that has been tuned within the past year, would you be able to open your home to a festival participant to practice? We need hundreds of practice hours, with the most hours needed on Sunday, June 5, and Monday, June 6. Participants sign up for practice time at the festival office and are sent to various

If you can help us out with an hour or two, or more, please call Sandy, practice-piano co-ordinator, at 250-828-1566, evenings and weekends, or leave a message during the day. The reward for offering your home will be having it filled with beautiful music. ■ We will also need many volunteers to manage the venues, facilitate registration on the Sunday, drive and help with various tasks in the weeks before the festival begins and during the event.

Public to get say on parkade in the park By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

As residents get ready to provide input on a parkade in Riverside Park, one outspoken councillor still has plenty to say on the idea. Denis Walsh contends city officials are fixated on the Lorne Street location and suggested there could be other sites to consider. “I think there are a lot of stones that haven’t been looked under in the city,” he told KTW. Walsh, who has opposed the parkade plan from day one, said the city should get “creative” and look for alternative spots, perhaps teaming with the Interior Health Authority, which is also looking at solving a parking crunch at Royal Inland Hospital. Council approved a report that recommends it move forward with

the public-consultation portion of the project. The city will have information booths at Aberdeen Mall from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 16 and Northills Mall on Sunday, April 17 from noon to 5 p.m. Another information session with council present takes place at Interior Savings Centre’s Parkside Lounge on April 18 from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The city will post the report on its website and include a questionnaire for residents. The report noted the three-level, 493-stall parkade on Lorne Street will cost $10 million. That works out to roughly $20,300 per parking stall. The annual cost of the parkade, with a 30-year amortization period for payment, has been pegged at $780,000, including a $100,000 annual operat-

ing cost. The study estimated the parkade would generate $485,000 a year in revenue. The study also suggested council increase downtown parkingmeter fees by 25 cents per hour to make up the $295,000 shortfall. Walsh questioned the information the city was expected to provide the public, claiming there are inaccuracies. For example, the design shows 70-yearold trees around the proposed parkade, but those trees have not been planted. Walsh said revenue projections for the parkade are optimistic, arguing it could be a couple of years before revenue reaches what is predicted in the report. “I believe there’s some manipulation with the presentation,” he said. Mayor Peter Milobar hopes residents will

look at the entire proposal, including the cost, before making up their minds. The mayor said he supports the plan and added the city has been trying to identify a site for several years, but hasn’t been able to acquire any other property. Milobar noted that using a site the city already owns helps keep the cost down.

Skeetchestn Indian Band councillor to wait weeks to learn his fate By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Skeetchestn Indian Band councillor will have wait at least a few more weeks before finding out whether he will be found guilty of animal-cruelty charges after 11 horses were seized from a pasture in 2009. Darrel Draney’s trial on charges of causing unnecessary pain, suffering or injury to animals and failing to provide adequate food, water, shelter or care wrapped up in Kamloops provincial court on Tuesday, April 12. The Crown alleges 18 emaciated horses found on two properties on the Skeetchestn Reserve were owned by or in the custody of Draney. Court has heard evidence from an SPCA investigator outlining the condition of the horses. BCSPCA Const.

Jamie Wiltse testified she issued an order to Draney on March 6, 2009, after finding a number of underweight horses on his property. A follow-up visit a week later resulted in the issuing of another order, court heard. On April 2, SPCA investigators executed two warrants — one on band land on Taylor Road and the other at Draney’s property on Deadman-Vidette Road. Eleven horses were seized from the Taylor Road property on a veterinarian’s recommendation, according to the Crown. Court heard the only food available on the pasture was mouldy hay. At Draney’s property on Deadman-Vidette Road, investigators found 16 horses — eight of which were found to be in distress, in the opinion of the SPCA. Those horses were not seized because one

of them was believed to have had a highly contagious disease that could have been spread to other animals in the seizure process, Wiltse said. Court heard one of the eight horses in distress on the DeadmanVidette property — and several of the horses seized from Taylor Road — were marked with Draney’s brand. After the seizure, Draney wrote a letter to the SPCA, asking the horses be returned. He eventually got one animal back. Draney testified in his own defence and described the winter of 2008-2009 as particularly harsh. He said he didn’t own any of the animals found by the SPCA. He said of the horses marked with his brand, he recognized

only one, and said that animal had been traded to somebody else. Draney said beetlekill trees had knocked over fences in 20082009, allowing a number of horses to escape into the mountains. When they returned, he said, they were in poor shape. Draney said when animals showed up on his property, he would take them in and try to nurse them back to health before taking them to the Taylor Road pasture. However, he said, the Taylor Road property also had insecure fencing. Kamloops provincial court Judge Stephen Harrison reserved his decision. Lawyers are expected to meet on April 21 to fix a date for decision.

If this was to happen to you, how would you deal with it? • Would your life change if you were to suffer a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or life-threatening cancer? • Where would the money come from to cover additional and unexpected expenses that may be associated with medical treatment, time off work and recovery? • Would you have to withdraw from your saving account, your RRSP or borrow from your Line of Credit to pay the medical bills (more than 70% of the costs linked to cancer are not covered by the provincial health insurance plan) and every day expenses.

Heather – Assistant Manager EASTER & OUR PETS

• At Easter, it’s a toss-up who begs more for all those chocolate treats, the dogs or the kids! Let the kids win, chocolate is toxic for dogs. Even half of your piece of chocolate can cause a great deal of discomfort for a dog. • Severe stomach pain, vomiting, diarrhea, laboured breathing, and even seizures can strike a pooch after ingesting chocolate. If this happens, contact a veterinarian immediately to reverse the ill effects of what started off as a very tasty treat. • Theobromine in chocolate is the ingredient most dangerous to your dog, even though it’s easily digested by people. We aren’t talking large quantities here, either! Only four ounces of milk chocolate, or one-half of an ounce of unsweetened chocolate is considered a fatal overdose for a dog of 20 pounds or less. • There are a number of imitation chocolate (carob) coated treats that are perfectly delicious for an Easter pet treat. If your much-loved dog participates in some little Easter basket hunt fun of their own, why not hide a few toys and favourite treats along the way for them! • Easter lilies are a beautiful plant shared as a gift by many. These are, however, toxic to cats. If you have a little ‘curious-george’ cat that nibbles on plants, this is one to place in a safe spot that your kitty can’t access. Signs of the poisoning may be in the form of vomiting, lethargy, or even just loss of appetite within a few hours of ingestion, and immediate veterinary care should be sought to prevent the kidney failure that can occur as a result of this exposure. • Include your pets in all the fun activities in your home at Easter. It’s sure to be a beautiful day, just perfect for sharing a walk with your four-legged buddy, maybe a special fresh sprig of millet for your budgie, or some oneon-one time with your kitty or your guinea pig!

last October. Liberation treatment is a medical procedure much like angioplasty, in which veins and arteries are unplugged, increasing blood flow to the brain and other parts of the body. The treatment was only made available in the U.S. a few months prior to O’Reilly’s trip. It’s based on the theory of Italian physician Paolo Zamboni that blood flow from the brain is compromised by narrow veins in the neck, causing MS symptoms — a condition termed chronic cerebo-spinal venous insufficiency. Within a day of treatment, the 27-year-old said he was already getting back much of the feeling he lost from the disease and, within a week, he was working out at a gym. Though the treatment worked for O’Reilly — and he knows of at least a half-dozen Kamloops residents who have undergone the same procedure — even he said it’s not for everyone. He said patients can’t go in expecting a miracle because, in some cases, it doesn’t work.

By Jeremy Deutsch OR MIKE O’REILLY, THE WORRY IS GONE. Not the same worry that most 20-somethings have, like finishing school, getting a job or maybe getting married. It’s the worry the Kamloops resident won’t be able to do any of the physical activities he once enjoyed. It’s now been six months since O’Reilly, who has multiple sclerosis, hopped on a plane to California to receive treatment for the disease not available in Canada. So far, the Venture Kamloops employee is nearly symptom-free. “It was always on the back burner,” O’Reilly said of his MS. “You’re always wondering when’s the day going to come that you’re not going to be able to do something, or you’re going to be in a wheelchair.” He said he’s back to living a normal lifestyle and the “cloud” — as he referred to his MS — is gone. O’Reilly dropped $13,000 to fly to a clinic in the Golden State to have Liberation treatment

Mike O’Reilly is happy with his controversial MS treatment — but acknowledges it’s not for everyone. KTW file photo

O’Reilly wishes B.C. would do trial X From A14

Many in the medical community, including the MS Society of Canada, are cautioning patients against having the procedure until further clinical trials are complete. In fact, Zamboni himself told an MS conference in Gothenburg, Sweden, in October that patients shouldn’t go ahead with such surgery, except in clinical trials, according to NeuroSens, a subscription-based news service on neurological matters. Just this week, a study out of the University of Buffalo suggested MS patients might have blocked veins from the disease, rather than those restricted veins being a cause. O’Reilly believes the debate about the

treatment will likely continue for years, but he’s encouraged Saskatchewan and Manitoba have teamed up to fund their own studies on the procedure. However, he’s disappointed B.C. is falling behind other provinces in research and hopes it will become an issue in the next provincial election. Occasionally, O’Reilly will get a little twinge. He said it’s a reminder he still has the disease and that the services offered to MS patients are still critical. But if, in a few years, the treatment wears off, O’Reilly said he wouldn’t hesitate to go back and do it again. “At least now there’s an option. I can put my $10,000 on the table

COVER PAGE STORY

An essay to remember heads to Ottawa Here is the Remembrance Day essay penned by Brenden Dueck. The 331-word piece took top spot in the junior category of the provincial Royal Canadian Legion Poster, Essay and Poetry Contest and is now headed to nationals.

O

NE MISTY cold autumn Remembrance Day, an old army veteran slowly walked through a grave yard full of the graves of his friends, friends that he had known for a long time, good friends but gone forever.

As he walked, he thought about the day he’d marched into battle, marching through the trenches, heart pounding, when all of a sudden he’d heard the signal. He remembered the sounds of gun fire, the deafening explosions of bombs, and his friends falling to the dirt. He’d run over to his one of fallen friends and checked for a pulse but there was none. Then suddenly the bombs stopped exploding and the guns stopped blasting and he was back in the grave yard. He stared down at his friend’s grave and

saw a small glimpse of red. He looked over and saw a small patch of poppies. He remembered what you do on Remembrance Day. He walked over and picked up one of the poppies. He took it over to his friend’s grave and laid it down. As he walked away, he saw a small boy selling poppies. He bought one to stick on his outfit. Then he went to the ceremony, planned to remember those who fought in the war. During the ceremony they laid wreaths and had a moment of silence to honour the soldiers.

My great grandfather was a soldier in the war. He came back afterwards but then died soon after. He and many others helped give us freedom. Today, there are still soldiers risking their lives for our freedom. I wonder now that we have freedom, we can achieve peace? Peace means a lot to people, but this is what peace means to me. No wars, everyone being treated the same, that would be awesome! The world has many problems that need to be fixed.

Author has proud mom and tearful dad XFrom A1

The success of the essay also thrilled Dueck’s parents. “My mom said that she was really proud,� Brenden said. “And my dad said he got tears in his eyes because he was so proud.� But, don’t expect to see the award-winning essay hanging on the fridge at the Dueck house. “I accidentally deleted it,� Dueck said.

“When I was going to open up the file, I accidentally replaced it with something else. “Luckily, my teacher kept a copy of it.� If you ask Dueck what the best part of this experience has been, it’s not the accolades from the Legion or the tears in his dad’s eyes. It’s the $125 prize that came with the provincial title, presented to him in front of an assembly at Dufferin.

“Everybody gasped when they heard the $125,� he said, smiling. “I was like, ‘Oh crap. $125?’ I started freaking out.� Where did those winnings go? “I got an IPod — finally,� Dueck said. “An IPod Touch.� The winning essay will be chosen later this spring and will eventually be displayed at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.

Urban voters dominate NDP race By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS tfletcher@blackpress.ca

The B.C. NDP is completing its first one member-one vote leadership contest on Sunday, April 17, with as many as three-quarters of its members coming from the populous southwest corner of the province. That’s the system the B.C. Liberal Party changed for its vote in February, in an effort to balance influence beyond Metro Vancouver and southern Vancouver Island. Education Minister George Abbott, who pushed for that change as a leadership candidate, says the NDP’s decision will come back to haunt it. “I think they’ve sold people from rural and northern British Columbia short by not moving to a weighted vote system,” Abbott said. “If a half-a-dozen ridings end up determining who wins the leadership of the party, it may give them some pause, I think, to consider whether to look at this in the future.” NDP leadership frontrunner Mike Farnworth estimates that of the party’s 28,000 members, there are about 5,000 in Vancouver, 7,000 in

CORRECTION A story appearing in the April 13 edition of Kamloops This Week contained incorrect information. In the story, Harasser ordered to stay on his side of river, KTW incorrectly stated Duncan Fortin’s criminal record had not been entered in to court during a sentencing hearing in January. It had in fact been fully disclosed to the court in January.

Surrey, another 2,000 in the suburbs north of the Fraser River and 7,000 on Vancouver Island. That’s a distribution of NDP members that roughly reflects the population of B.C., and the party will probably review the one member-

one vote system at its next convention, he said. “And I’m sure constituencies from rural B.C. will weigh in with their perspective,” Farnworth said. “I wouldn’t be surprised if we get resolutions saying, ‘let’s go to a weighted system.’

I wouldn’t be surprised if you get resolutions saying, ‘go to a regional system.’” “At the end of the day, it’s the person you choose,” Farnworth said. “You can have an idiot elected from Fort St. John and just because

they’re from rural B.C. doesn’t mean they’re going to be a particularly good premier. “Likewise, you could have somebody from Vancouver who might not be that good a leader in terms of even dealing with urban issues.”

These students rock in the Heavy Metal category Twenty-six School District 73 highschool students completed their threeday Heavy Metal Rocks program on April 2. The annual program involves students operating heavy equipment at the Tk’emlups Indian Band gravel pit. The final day involved students and operators showing parents how they operate the big machines and wound up with a celebratory barbecue and awards, sponsored and hosted by Warner Rentals, one of the many community members to help make Heavy Metal Rocks possible. “Approximately 50 companies and sponsors, along with a large number of individuals, volunteered hours, equipment and supplies to make this a success,” said Greg Howard, SD73’s district principal of trades and transitions. “The smiles on the faces of our students as they maneuvered the large pieces of equipment spoke volumes about the relevancy of this program.”

Rattlers poised to strike again

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

It tends to be the junior B Rattlers and Venom that get most of the attention when it comes to lacrosse in the River City but there is another team in town, and they’re pretty damn good. The senior C Kamloops Rattlers, part of the Okanagan Extreme Lacrosse League (OXLL), brought a championship trophy — the Shaw Cup — back to Memorial Arena last season.

Kamloops’ first game of a new season is scheduled for 8 p.m. on April 22, when the Rattlers will host Kelowna at Memorial. A title defence will not be easy, considering the Rattlers are without eight players who helped the squad win it all in 2010, but it can be done, said captain Mark Jurista. “We still have a strong defensive unit, with basically all of our key defencemen returning this year,” said Jurista, a NorKam secondary grad who teaches at Brocklehurst Middle School.

“The graduating juniors will add more speed and scoring potential to the team.” Four junior B graduates — Liam Hagerty, JJ Woldum, Ryland DeRose and Devon Larsen — are joining the senior squad this season. The Rattlers’ roster will also consist of four or five players who have been away from the game for a while, on lacrosse hiatus, some for as long as 10 years, Jurista said. Whether the bodies of the young juniors and veteran returnees can hold up in a league

known for its rough and tumble style remains to be seen. Jurista, who led the team in scoring during the regular season last year with 12 goals and 30 points in 11 games, will again be relied on to produce up front. Backstopping the Rattlers this season are Stu Ford and Mike Smith, both of whom will see action between the pipes. Smith carried the bulk of the load in 2010, posting a 7.30 GAA in 10 games. Joining the Rattlers in the OXLL are senior C squads from

Kelowna, Armstrong and Vernon. Each team plays each other four times, twice away and twice home. The playoffs begin at the end of July and the league winner advances to the senior C provincial tournament, which runs Aug. 19 to Aug 21 in Prince George. If the Rattlers earn the right to play at provincials, they will have met their captain’s preseason goal. “So far, the team is looking very strong,” Jurista said. “We are looking

forward to the season, with our goal being to defend the Shaw Cup.”

The roster Stu Ford, (G) Ryan Kurzac, Mike Smith, Mark Jurista, Matt Vezina, Liam Hagerty, Ryan Watson, Kevin Pakkala, Jeff Dairon, AJ Lockwood, Jason Glover, Ryland DeRose, Brett Baker, Lee Black, Jesse Wessel, Tyler Knox, Nathan Woldum, Scott Martin, Devon Larsen, Rob Smith, Jordan Henry, JJ Woldum, Chris Phillips and Ryan Hildebrand.

The staff Head coach John Aldred, assistant coach Rick Baker, trainer Brian Turner and ball boy Wyatt Henry.

Snake bites The Rattlers’ new website — kamloopsseniorrattlers.com — is under construction, but should be operational by the end of this weekend, Jurista said. A full regular-season schedule will be available on the site. Rattlers’ season tickets will be on sale at the home opener.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Sunrays host regional synchro meet By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

It might be elegant, but that doesn’t mean synchronized swimming is for sissies. The Kamloops Sunrays Synchronized Swim Club is encouraging spectators to see for themselves on Saturday, April 16, when the Regional Synchronized Swimming

Championships get underway at the Tournament Capital Centre. “Someone who’s never been might get the preconception that it’s just like water ballet, and there’s not much to it, but the girls swim really hard,” said Sunrays vice-president Irene Klossner. “It’s a full-out workout. Cardio, strength and everything.”

Clubs from Vernon, Kelowna and Nelson will be in attendance on Saturday for the event, which is a pre-requisite for provincials in May. The Sunrays will have two recreational teams and three competitive teams in action at regionals. Klossner said anyone wishing to watch the action should be at the TCC between 2 p.m. and 4:30 p.m., that’s

A33

when the solo, duet and team competitions are scheduled to happen. Kamloops’ synchro club boasts 44 members between the ages of seven and 60. The ladies train 10 months of the year at the TCC, Westsyde Pool and, occasionally in the summer, at Brocklehurst Pool, an outdoor facility. Klossner, who swims in the masters’ age-

class, said the Sunrays have been around since the late 1980s. Anyone wishing to join the club can call her at 250-851-0505. For those who have never seen the sport live, Saturday’s meet is a perfect opportunity to do so, Klossner said. “It’s the culmination of the year’s work. It’s fun to come and watch and see the athleticism that’s involved.”

CLEANSING IN COMOX

Colleen Friesen photo

By Colleen Friesen SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

T

HERE ARE SOJOURNS, TOURS, JOURNEYS and vacations, but then there is travel of an entirely different sort. On a recent trip to Fresh Start Health Retreat near Comox, I crossed far out of my comfort zone to spend five days in an entirely different world — the planet of plant-based eating. I spent four of those days drinking nothing but freshly juiced fruits and vegetables. But, fear not — I have not become one of those vegans with a vengeance. Instead, I discovered a way to rejuvenate and nourish my body. This was an inner journey, the kind without passports and visas.

LES LEARY SALES ASSOCIATE

Cell 250-318-5100

250-374-3331 lleary@telus.net www.lesleary.com

Real Estate (Kamloops)

The word at Fresh Start is that a plant-based diet can reverse the damage we’ve created through the SAD (standard American diet). It seems we really are what we eat and most of us eat too much meat. The resulting fatty cholesterol builds inside our arteries, reducing blood and oxygen flow to the heart (read attack) the brain (read stroke) and the tissues (read cancer). To fight this, Fresh Start administers liver-cleansing smoothies that are prepared and doled out on a regular basis throughout the four-day juice fast. There are beet juices made with lemon and apple, juices from spinach, celery, apple and cucumbers and the real crowd-pleaser of sauerkraut, cabbage and carrot. Not! Let’s not forget the shots of juiced wheatgrass that tasted like you’d licked your lawnmower blades clean — and don’t get me started on the warm saline-water flush (with

304-15 Hudsons Bay Trail - $323,000

flush truly being the operative word) that started each day. Yet, this journey not only gave me a kick-start in clearing my body, but also gave me the tools to incorporate some new healthy habits. We learned how easy it is to make tasty meals using only raw plant foods. They won me over with the freshesttasting cheesecake of my life — with not a speck of cheese in sight. I don’t imagine I’ll be regularly slamming wheatgrass shots and, though I hate to say never, I’m thinking I will never drink the aforementioned cabbage swirl. What I will be doing is eating more fresh produce each day. I felt energized throughout my stay and, surprisingly, only felt hungry a few times, which was quickly remedied by the next juice. I could only have done this in their temptation-free, supportive and XSee RETREAT B8 gorgeous environment.

Vertical Axis WIND TURBINES VBINE has developed the world’s first direct drive vertical axis wind turbine. Vbine’s Turbine uses patented technology to deliver 5kw of power while providing unmatched durability and performance in lower wind applications. With a patented blade design that truly starts on its own with just a breeze and still draws the maximum horsepower from the wind. Vbine has built a 5kw generator with low maintenance. Ideally suited for applications that require the utmost safety, Vbine’s low tip speed and stealth operation make it a perfect choice for urban setting with either a grid tie application or battery charge controller for remote installations. The direct drive technology and low rotation speed lends itself perfectly to inline installations on communication towers (a first for the industry). dealer inquiries invited

Brian Lauer a “Regular Joe” This guy, Darren Weeks, promises all sorts of things to us average Canadians about how we can get out of the “Canadian Rat Race” and on to the “Fast Track” He claims that people can start from scratch and become “Rich” in 5 years or less. He talks about wrestling back control of your finances from the Big Banks and Financial Planners. He says he teaches people how to buy Canadian Real Estate with “No Money Down”, and many other “creative” money making ideas and so on. Every time I used to read one of his ads, I thought, “Who could be dumb enough to fall for this guy’s smoke & mirrors?” Now, I’m going to tell you the raw truth about Darren Weeks and his “How to Get Rich in Canada” stuff. My name is Brian Lauer. I live in Kelowna, B.C. with my wife Donna and our 2 kids. I grew up in Saskatchewan, moved to B.C. in the early 70’s. After doing different jobs in the Alberta oil patch, and then in construction, I married Donna in 1991. A few years after getting married I was out of work for a few months and I decided to get into plumbing. It was pretty rough trying to make it on apprentice wages of only $9 bucks an hour back then – especially with a family to support. Once I got my Plumber’s ticket things were OK, but I always thought I could do better in life instead of just grinding it out 9 - 5. I was doing OK with my plumbing work. But at the end of the day I was always trading hours for dollars – and there always seemed to be more expenses than money in the bank. If I ever stopped working, the money stopped coming in. I had a $15,000 line of credit that I honestly thought I’d never pay off. Then in 2001 I saw an ad for one of these “Free Rich Dad” events. I had read “Rich Dad, Poor Dad” and I thought what the heck, maybe I should be a little more open minded – what can I lose at a ‘free’ seminar anyway? But in the back of my mind I was sure that they were going to try to get me all jazzed up and excited, and then try to sell me some $5,000.00 real estate course. I had told myself that I would only stay at the event until the “pitch” started, then I’d go home. What Donna and I discovered at Darren’s “How to Get Rich in Canada” seminar really shocked us. First of all, I was waiting the whole time for the “other shoe to fall” and wondering when I was going to get “pitched” the expensive Real Estate course. It never happened. The most expensive thing I could buy there was a book – and they weren’t hardly mentioned. What was mentioned were rock solid ideas, tips and strategies that Darren himself has put to use in his own life to create millions of dollars in income and equity in his businesses, investments and Real Estate. The man doesn’t like the Big Banks or Financial Planning companies very much, and he showed us why not. He opened our eyes to a whole different way of thinking about money and wealth – and most importantly, he inspired us to take action and go for it! Within a week of attending that event we decided to make Real Estate investing our

vehicle to wealth (but Real Estate is not the only subject covered at Darren’s events – he also goes in depth about Business and investing). Over the next couple of months we got cracking and started buying our first investment properties. Now, just a few short years later, we have over 29 ‘doors’ (rental units) in B.C. an Alberta and we are looking for another apartment building to buy with our investors. The positive cashflow from our properties is more than enough to replace my plumber’s wages. Now I work at plumbing because I want to, not because I have to. While others in my field are worried about the economy and impending work shortages – all I can see is opportunity! And I know that if anything ever happened to me, we would be just fine with our Real Estate. Not only that, but we learned how to buy them right and at the right price, and our Net Worth now officially makes us millionaires twice over! (Which is sweet revenge for all the snickers we got from friends and family when we first told them what we were up to). Now you might be asking yourself how such a thing could happen to a blue-collar guy like me. The answer is simple. It’s all about learning how real proven and effective wealth creation systems work. I’m not talking about the “late nite t.v.” crap that comes in from South of the border either. I’m talking about proven methods and strategies that work right here in Canada – our home and native land. In spite of everything you’ve heard about investing in Real Estate being ‘risky’ – or the failure rate of starting your own business – or how crappy investing can be (and it can be – if you do it the way the ‘establishment’ tells you to) you too can learn how to get rich sooner rather that later. So here is the raw truth about Darren Weeks: Unlike most of those ‘pretend’ experts out there, he actually teaches stuff that works. He not only teaches it – he does it! He walks his talk and has businesses, investments and lots of Real Estate. Just like me, you’ve seen his ads in this paper before. You’ve gotten postcards from him. Or maybe you’ve seen him on TV, or heard his ads on the radio. If you haven’t been to one of his “How to Get Rich in Canada” events yet, I don’t know why not! Maybe you think you’re too smart and know it all, or that it is going to be a rip off, like I did. But if you’re so smart, why aren’t you rich and happy? Maybe you are doing well already – but you could do better (many of Darren’s students are ‘retired’ in their 30’s or 40’s). Maybe you just don’t want to be sold something that’ll be a waste of your hard-earned money. About that

You must register immediately to attend my upcoming FREE “How to Get Rich in Canada” event.

By the way, I wasn’t paid even a penny or given anything to write this about Darren Weeks. I am a regular Joe just like you. I did this as my way of saying thanks to Darren for everything he’s done for me and my family. And I’m not the only person who feels this way. Darren has spoken to over 200,000 Canadians at his events since he started in 2001. Many, just like me, are now making more money than they ever did before and are reaching their own financial dreams. My wife Donna just says “Wow” about how much we have accomplished and how much more we are going to do and have. We continue to go to Darren’s events as often as we can, because we always learn something new, and meet great new people. All I can say is, “Don’t envy us. Join us” BRIAN LAUER, Kelowna, B.C. P.S. Please don’t get my number and call

Retreat rewards your health XFrom B1

This brings me to the other part of this restorative retreat. Fresh Start takes place at the Ocean Resort in a rural area outside of Comox called Oyster Bay. The seashore is right out front, ensuring an ongoing symphony of surf and waves. The interior utilizes sun-bleached wood for the tables, light fixtures and signage, creating a beachquiet sanctuary that is restorative and a welcome change from most standard resorts. There is no clutter or cuteness — just serene and calming quiet. There is time for mossy green walks along forest trails and on the windswept beach. The morning yoga class is a gentle start to each day. The afternoon discussions on health and the cookless-cooking classes are both infor-

mative and fun. My favourite was the nightly steam bath. Sitting in the hot fog was another chance to talk to the guests, who were finishing a two-week program. I learned one couple had come from Alberta in the hopes of building her immune system to fight her cancer. Her husband was there to support her. Being Albertan lovers-of-all-things-beef, they were reeling with

all the new information, but excited at a chance for change. Another woman had no idea she was coming until three days before she left. Her daughters sent her after watching her deepening depression. She was glowing on that last day. “I feel stronger and more in control of my life. I’ve lost 11 pounds and . . .” she said with a laugh. “Can you believe it? I’m actually excited about introducing

green smoothies into each day.” Green smoothies are the easiest takeaway lesson from our stay. They are essentially fresh-fruit smoothies blended with any fresh dark greens. The fruit disguises whatever greens you choose, delivering a body blast of raw green goodness. As people like Bill Clinton take up the torch, plant-based diets are making headlines.

The gift of mental health Successful Kamfest is done for one more year

E

ACH YEAR, our everyday partners at Interior Savings Credit Union, the Jim Pattison Broadcast Group and Lee’s Music, along with the Canadian Mental Health Association, provide the gift of mental health through comedy or music. This year, the Dominic Miller Band performed what many have said is the best concert they have ever seen. CMHA’s vision for Kamfest is to bring short and long-term positive impacts from Kamfest. We want an immediate boost to mental health after the winter, as well as benefits to overall health through raising revenue and trade to Kamloops’ businesses — the same businesses that support non-profits and the community all year long. Kamfest is CMHA’s way of giving back to the community, especially to the commercial establishments that make Kamloops great. Our vision is to grow Kamfest into a full-day or weekend event that brings affordable fun to Kamloops’ families, while attracting visitors to the city to benefit our economy.

Here is the quick and dirty behindthe-scenes look at Kamfest 2011: This year, Kamfest concert-goers brought 530 pounds of food and $550 in cash for the Kamloops Food Bank. Technical problems prevented us from showing the slideshow of Kamfest Award winners set to Dominic Miller’s song David, which included Kamloops This Week photographer Dave Eagles’ photos that earned him the Greg Jones Memorial Kamfest Award for the Arts. We hope to have it on our website soon. CFJC-TV7 used six high-definition cameras and had to rush some of them to the theatre after producing the live evening news. The station worked in combination with Lee’s Music’s giant screen to produce an amazing live-feed show. The crew’s tantalizing angles and closeups, along with Rob Kovac’s enormously talented camera direction, will wow you when you see the show air on CFJCTV7. Lee’s Music not

only provided the large screen and light show, but it recorded the sound on 24-track digital stereo in order for us to produce an amazing television soundtrack to accompany CFJC-TV7’s high-def video for air and for DVD sale. Miller told us his only regret about the performance was that he failed to tell the crowd that Lee’s Music was the very best sound team he has ever worked with and, after 21 years with Sting and more than 200 CD recordings, that is amazing praise. Lee’s Music provided rehearsal instruments for the sixbedroom guest house we rented for the band on ranch land overlooking the Thompson River. On stage, Miller told the crowd that Kamfest was the highlight of his career and he hoped we will have him back. Privately, he called Kamfest “food for my soul” and talked about the cleanliness of the city and the air (our dirtiest time of the year) and about how he wanted his son to work for a year with CMHA in Kamloops

to experience what we were doing here. In addition, all band members said privately they hoped to bring their families back to Kamloops on vacation to spend more time and show their families what one of them called “a beautiful part of the planet.” We lured Miller to Kamloops with the promise we would start his world tour with fun to produce lifetime memories. The band indicated we achieved exactly that. They have already agreed to come back in a few years and spend longer in Kamloops and play more Canadian dates. They could not say enough about the people, the community and the environment we have here in Kamloops — but we all knew that anyway. For backstage insights and personal tidbits about Miller and the players in the band, as well as some not-before revealed trivia about their stay in Kamloops, check out our website at Kamloops.cmha.bc.ca. If you saw the concert, write to us at kamloops@cmha. bc.ca and tell us if you liked the gift of music from Interior Savings, CFJC-TV7, Lee’s Music and CMHA.

Sunday, April 10 the Kamloops Gurudawara Sahib Society presented $12,000 to the Red Cross. The funds are earmarked for the relief efforts in Japan. Congregation members gathered round to watch Avtar Singh-Chahal, Hardev Singh-Mangat and Ajaib Singh-Serown present the cheque to John Richey, Canadian Red Cross operations manager. Kamloops Japanese Canadian Association president Eugene Ebata was also on hand to oversee the donation. This March the Canadian Red Cross sent $5 million in cash to the Japanese Red Cross to support relief efforts following the March 11 earthquake and tsunami. The money will be used to support emergency health and the distribution of relief items to people impacted by this disaster. The Canadian Red Cross will send additional financial support as the needs of people affected by this disaster unfold. Canadians can continue to support Red Cross relief efforts by making a financial donation to the Canadian Red Cross Japan Earthquake/Asia-Pacific Tsunami fund. Donations can be made online at www.redcross.ca/helpnow, at your local branch office or by calling toll free 1-800-418-1111.

Hopefully, it will spark some conversation and raise the profile of our group. We have Gary Bauslaugh delivering a lecture on Thursday, April 21 at 7 p.m. at the Thompson Rivers University Alumni Theatre on the topic of mercy killing and, specifically, the case of Robert Latimer. Bauslaugh has written a book on the subject — A Story Of Justice and Mercy. On Saturday, May 7, we are hosting our inaugural conference at the Kamloops Convention Centre.

Understand the rules of green lights to stay safe By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC Traffic lights are used to organize the flow of traffic on our roads. Throughout the years, we have been taught that a red light means “stop,” a yellow light means use “caution” and a green light means “go.” However there can be so much more meaning to each of these “colours.” Green lights, for example, are often misused and many drivers don’t take the extra time they should at intersections. Typically, when we see a green light, we think “GO!” But, we really should be thinking, “Is this light going to change before I am through the intersection?” There are two types of a solid green light. A fresh

green light is a green light that has just turned green. It is not likely to turn yellow soon. As you are approaching a fresh green light, scan – Left, Centre and then Right – before you enter the intersection. You may enter the intersection on a green light: 1. If it is safe for you to do so 2. If the intersection is clear The second type of green light would be a stale light – one that has been green for a long time, and is about to turn yellow. Chances are, if you didn’t see the light turn green – it’s STALE. Stale green lights can cause problems when drivers are not prepared. Many drivers don’t know how to recognize a stale green light and are so not prepared for the light to turn yellow. When it does, the worst situation happens: Hesitation!

As drivers approach a stale green light, they need to watch their speed, road conditions and the traffic behind you. Ask, “If this light turns yellow, can I stop?” Do this until at the POINT OF NO RETURN. This is the point at the intersection where you can no longer stop safely in time. If the light turns yellow and you have passed the point of no return, you would remain at your speed – scanning left, centre and right – and if it’s safe, travel through the intersection. Never accelerate to “get through the intersection faster” – just keep doing the speed limit. As you can see, a simple green light has its own rules to keep us all safe. Make sure you approach these traffic lights knowing what to do.

IHA adds $5.9 million for residential-care sites An additional $5.9 million has been allocated through the Interior Health Authority, to be spent on care for residents in publicly funded residential-care sites. The IHA said the money will be used to standardize the delivery of residential care across the health region and will be spent on staffing and education initiatives. “This funding will improve the quality and consistency of care for seniors, so that regardless of where clients live, they have access to the same standard and level of quality service,” said IHA board chairman Norman Embree. Across the IHA, the hours of direct care residents receive at all residential-care sites will now be an average of 3.15 care hours per resident per day. Care hours include the care provided by RNs, LPNs, care aides and activity and rehab staff. “While not all sites will see a direct increase in hours, I am very pleased that our broad investments in staff education and care planning will benefit all sites,” said Donna Lommer, the IHA’s vice-president of residential services. The IHA will also be hiring people to support frontline staff and will create four quality-coordinator positions.

Last year, the IHA spent $4 million in health-authority contracted private sites.

The IHA said the $5.9 million is being taken from revenue from the new formula

introduced by the provincial government last year that sets residential care-rate fees at 80 per

beds for residents requiring around-theclock complex care through facilities owned

and operated by the IHA and those operated by contracted private partners.

HOME SHOW

THE HOME SHOW CAPITAL OF CANADA T

HERE MAY BE A BIT OF SNOW IN THE HILLS AND A LINGERING CHILL IN THE AIR, BUT A SURE SIGN OF SPRING CAN BE FOUND OUTSIDE OF DATES ON THE CALENDAR. This weekend marks the return of the annual spring edition of the BC Home Show, which rolls into McArthur Island Sports Centre for three days. “We are the Tournament Capital of Canada, but we are also the Home Show Capital of Canada,” said Jim Rice, who created BC HomeShows in 1998. This weekend’s spring show takes place on Friday (5 p.m. to 9 p.m.), Saturday (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Sunday (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.) and, as usual, offers free admission. This weekend’s event features a record number of exhibitors, with more than 215 set to show their wares to the thousands who will

visit McArthur Island. “It’s the largest show in the Interior,” Rice said. “And it’s a sign of the economy — businesses are out advertising again. “Consumers have a great opportunity of selection. Rice said the process is back in the hand of the consumers. “This show is a great opportunity to see new products, new green products, all kinds of products,” he said. Exhibitors are arriving from Kamloops, from throughout B.C. and from across Western Canada. If there is something around the home that needs attention, Rice said, the spring BC Home Show is the place to be. From renovating inside and out to landscaping, to adding that little knick-knack to the patio, the home show will have an exhibitor to interest you. A word of advice for those

wishing to attend. Since the home show is extremely popular and can be very busy, Rice said the best time to attend is right when the doors open. “You miss the rush and you get good parking,” he said. BC HomeShows Ltd. has grown to 12 shows annually since its

inception 13 years ago. Rice produced more than 150 shows and now operates the largest independent home show the British Columbia Interior. BC HomeShows Ltd. serves the communities of Kamloops, Kelowna, Merritt, Penticton, Salmon Arm and Vernon.

Update tired interiors with a quick flooring transformation Is your home in need of a quick makeover to go from boring to brilliant? What better time than now to update your home’s tired, worn interior? Look no further than right under your feet for a simple and affordable way to freshen your décor — updating with flooring that mimics natural stone or ceramic tile but without the upkeep or high cost. Installing new flooring can quickly and dramatically change a room’s appearance without breaking your budget, thanks to stylish, durable and affordable new flooring options like luxury vinyl tile (LVT). Whether you’re looking to update a bathroom, kitchen or living room, LVT, such as Tarkett NAFCO Luxury Floors PermaStone Collection, can help you make a spectacular transformation that offers practical performance and stunning looks. “Today’s luxury vinyl tile echoes the style of natural, hard-surface flooring options, such as stone, slate and marble,” said Erica Hubbard, Tarkett NAFCO marketing director. “These designs pop with depth and realism and combine both classic and

contemporary elements, providing a wide range of style options.” LVT delivers all of the luxury of natural flooring but without the hassle and fuss. Warm, soft and quiet underfoot, wear–resistant LVT holds up to the rigors of daily household traffic much better than stone, ceramic or hardwood. It also resists water and moisture, making it a great option for “wet” areas of the house, such as a kitchen or bath. Many LVT products offer various installation options. PermaStone, for example, lets you choose from the following: ■ GroutFit: Creates grout lines that mimic the look of real grout; ■ GroutFil: Features 14 pre–mixed acrylic grout colors for customized grout options; ■ GroutLess – randomly cut tiles give floors an individualized, custom design feel. The design possibilities are endless for a luxurious new room. And, with LVT’s quick and easy installation, you can finish an amazing DIY spring decorating spruce–up in a weekend or even less. newscanada.com

HOME SHOW

Let instinct be your decor guide What makes a room truly beautiful? Beyond good light and good proportions, what makes the difference between a showstopper and ho–hum? Designers know it has nothing to do with its physical attributes or the cost of the decor. The most beautiful rooms are the ones that are used. This is why — ironically — living rooms are usually dead, and kitchens and family rooms are the lively centres of our homes, the places we like to hang out. A room that is exquisitely designed but left undisturbed will never be as welcoming and pleasing as a well–used room. When it’s a little frayed — or marked by life — we love it more. This comfortable melding of life and design is captured in Instinct, a 2011 design trend from PPG Pittsburgh Paints. Instinct is about “decurating” — the idea that a room is an evolution, edited over time to leave behind meaningless stuff in favour of meaningful objects gathered on travels, or family treasures passed down. It embodies an appreciation of the simple, the organic and the unadorned. Forego clean and decorative colours in favour of shades that represent natural materials. Opt for the butterscotch hues of wood grains set against the greys and whites of slate, stone, and marble. This palette is earthy and grounded, but the juxtaposition of raw wood and honed

marble, smooth cast iron objects in primordial shapes and sleek metal details will give it sophistication. Floorboards are hand-scraped; planks are wide and look oil-rubbed. Leathers are another key material, but black and dark browns give way to warmer, worn finishes of old luggage, boots and saddles. It is old-world relaxed simplicity. A wide range of patterns will work, from traditional through contemporary. Animal prints bring in the patterns of nature. This slightly masculine style is adaptable. It can lean toward an urban or rural aesthetic, depending on how we choose to layer and balance. In the city, use more white and slick metallic surfaces and curate to a spare minimalism. In the country, use more wood, more matte and honed finishes, as well as old and weathered patinas. But, always maintain a mix. After all, it’s all about the textures, patinas, and handmade objects gathered over time into a pleasing blend. It encourages us to capture comfort along with beauty. It is those signs of wear that take away the curse of unsullied perfection and bring a room to life. This décor assures us a room is meant to be used–and that is our cue to relax.

Ordinarily, gifts that are connected to a person’s work are among the most ill-received of all presents. No accountant wants an anniversary ledger. The landscaper in your life doesn’t want a birthday rake. And every farmer I’ve ever known would rather receive a box of chocolate-covered nuts

than a gift certificate to have the inner workings of the milk separator re-tinned. But, if you’ve a professional cook or baker in the family, there’s nothing — from tiny timbals, heavy-duty whisks and French rolling pins, to Silpat muffin moulds and icecream makers — that they won’t get abso-

lutely silly over. For exactly this reason, I’m in the blessed position of never having been afflicted by gifter’s block when it comes to sussing out presents for my chef husband. He takes similar liberties come gift time, receiving big squeezy hugs for anything from stainless-steel ring molds for cookie cut-

Love doesn’t mean a $1,000 knife X From B17

Without a doubt, love of eating, especially together, is part of the glue that’s kept us happily married for going on 17 years. And so, last time I was in Calgary — and feeling particularly soppy and lovestruck for a husband whose unqualified support meant I was there on a book tour — my Visa became dislodged from my wallet. But, not for the sake of just any gift. I’d wandered into Knifewear in Inglewood, a boutique Japanese-knife shop. Here were blades fashioned by some of the planet’s most-skilled artisans. Admittedly, my budget didn’t reach anywhere near the store’s ceiling. There’s never going

to be a $1,000 knife in our block. But, the knife I chose, an Oshishi Tsuchime blade, turned out to be such a hit that the chef hasn’t even taken it to work for show and tell. It’s in his office here at home. Which effectively means he loves it so dearly he doesn’t trust me with it. That’s OK, though because tonight, some of our favourite gifts to one another are coming out of the cabinets for a little cedar-paper and bacon-salt celebration. I’m so happy I could squeal like a chef! Darcie Hossack is a food writer and author of Mennonites Don’t Dance. For past recipes, visit nicefatgurdie.wordpress.com.

Soak cedar cooking wraps in water overnight. This will make them supple enough to work with and gently steam the lamb as it cooks. Slice lamb loin into two pieces. Season with salt and pepper. Pan-sear on all sides. Combine maple syrup, barbecue and Worcestershire sauces in a small bowl. Add seared lamb and toss to coat. Place each piece of loin in the centre of a cedar wrap. Roll up and tie snugly with butcher’s twine. Place bundles on a heated grill. Cook to medium rare (or desired doneness), using a meat thermometer if necessary. Remove from grill and let rest for five minutes. Snip and discard twine. Discard cedar wraps. Slice each loin into three pieces on an angle. Sprinkle with bacon salt. Serve with your favourite sides (we chose a white bean, chorizo and short-rib cassoulet). Where to find it: For the Cedar Cooking Wraps, visit bccoastalgrillingplanks.com. For bacon salt, visit seatoskyseasonings.com.

Generally speaking, moist products that have low acidity and are high in protein are most at risk of bacterial contamination. This is the case for deli meats and dairy products. Foods rich in unsaturated fatty acids, such as oils, nuts, and grains, tend to go rancid over time. Here are a few examples

of how long a product should be kept once it has been opened: Mayonnaise, one to two months; commercial salad dressing, three months; commercial jams, four to six months; maple syrup, four to six months; butter, one to three weeks; margarine, one to three months; cottage cheese, one week; cream cheese, two weeks.

Mayor’s name lives on in the kitchen Sisters Sandra Sponaugle and Louise Millar (above) have won the BC Living Arts (BCLA) challenge to create a confection named after the city’s mayor. The sisters’ submission, originally called the Yummy Bar and now renamed the Kamloops Milo Bar, was one of 23 sent in after the competition was created in February. The competition was the brainchild of Alan Corbishley, the BCLA’s artistic director, who said Mayor Peter Milobar’s last name always reminded him of a dessert.

According to evangelist Mark, early on a Sunday morning, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James and Salome made their way to a tomb to anoint the dead body of Jesus. Mark also tells us these women had earlier watched the crucifixion of Jesus “from a distance.” When it was all over, they saw Joseph of Arimathea pull the dead body off the NARAYAN MITRA cross, wrap it in a You Gotta Have linen cloth, lay it FAITH in a tomb cut out of a rock and roll a stone over the door of the tomb. The women began to watch what happened from a distance. That is our favourite perspective on death — we do all we can to keep our distance. We try to stay healthy, work out and watch what we eat. It’s all a way of keeping death at bay. But, occasionally it catches up to someone we love and then we know we have to see death up close. About six years ago, it became painfully clear death can always bridge the distance to find any of us when four young RCMP officers

were shot and killed on a farm in Mayerthrope, Alta. When these peacekeepers became victims of a peace hater, what fell on that day was not just four Mounties, but also the illusion that somehow practitioners in use of firearms could save themselves from their own deaths. When the twin towers in New York crumbled in 2001, Americans woke up to the realization they were far from safe from the violence the rest of world has known for a long time. It does not matter how wealthy, welldefended or far-removed we are from evil men. Terror can still find us. In the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11, 2011, many of our social commentators repeatedly said: “Everything has changed.” It remains to be seen just how much we have changed — beyond tolerating longer lines at airports. The women who made their way to the tomb on the first Easter morning had been with Jesus since his Galilee days. In Galilee, Jesus had been so full of life and was constantly restoring the lives of others. Before Mary Magdalene met him, her soul had been torn apart by seven demons. All the women knew they were something less before meeting Jesus. This man was their saviour but now, he was dead. Maybe as the women walked down the road toward the tomb, someone mentioned the world has always been hard on saviours. Or, like most people in deep grief, maybe they said nothing as they closed the distance between themselves and the tomb of death.

Their only dilemma, according to Mark, was how they would get the stone rolled back. Many of us also know about pushing against stones of life. We have all been pushing against something for a long time. Maybe this Easter is finding us pushing against a superior who is hard to satisfy or against the threat of being downsized in our jobs (or, for some seniors, having to downsize a large home they have lived in for years). Or, maybe some of us are pushing against a marriage that seems destined for the ditch or against a disease, depression, loneliness or some obstacle that is between us and our dreams. Lately, we are pushing against the anxiety a tsunami, earthquake or radiation might hit us. We think that if we can just get this burdensome thing rolled back, we will be fine. But, as the story goes, even if we get rid of our huge stone, all that is waiting on the other side is death. When the women arrived at the tomb, they were startled to discover the stone was already rolled back. They walked inside, saw an angel in white and became alarmed. No wonder the women fled the tomb in fear. We may not care much for death, but we understand it. It’s what sets the agenda for the rest of life. That is why we push so hard at life — against aging, diseases, or terrorists. We want to stay away from death as long as possible. According to Easter message, the point of life is not to collect as many things as possible,

to hold your loved ones as tightly as possible or to waste our precious few years of life trying to postpone death. Easter declares the point of life is to discover a death-defying hope. That is why it is such a profound opportunity this Easter to join the two Marys and Salome in staring at the tomb of Christ. Then, we can stare at our own tombs of loss and death without fear. When the church first began, it struggled through periods of persecution for centuries. Every week, when believers gathered, they took time to embrace each other because they did not know who might be martyred for the faith before their next assembly. They died with Christ, however, only to be raised to a new life with him and in him. Only in Christ’s death and resurrection, it is possible for us also to die to the old agendas and rise to a changed life no longer crippled by fear. The greatest catastrophe of history happened not on Japan’s shore on March 15, 2011 or on Sept.11, 2001 in New York. It took place 2,000 years ago, when we crucified the Son of God. That was the ultimate experience beyond humanity’s limit. But, it was then thathistory was given the possibility of resurrection also. When Jesus defeated death, he did so that we may experience something beyond our limits — to rise with him into a new life. But, it will be up to us to walk out of our graves as new creatures.

We will always remember your kindness. Thank you. Every sign of affection that you have shared with us has been a tribute to Dad. We know that he and Mom are dancing together in Heaven. They are in our hearts forever. ERNIE COLMAN FAMILY

by Peggy Kociscin,Albuquerque, New Mexico

But, as he grew and learned of life, The sparkle in his eye Grew misty as he realized Just what it means to cry.

The unicorn tried tirelessly, And gave the climb his best; But he felt it was not good enough, He felt he’d failed the test.

He learned that there are shadows In spite of shining sun. The more he grew, he found that life Was never always fun.

He could not understand it When he felt himself rejected – When all his gentle being asked Was but to be accepted.

For now he’d learn of feelings That come from deep within; No longer in the “dream world” Where (for so long) he’d been.

All this was just too much for him, He knew not what to do. That he was special as himself, Somehow, he never knew.

His gentle heart desired But to know the pleasure of To give and to receive The very precious gift of love.

He laughed and played with rainbows, So happy all day through, He loved to kiss the flowers As their petals shone with dew.

His spirit crushed, he felt defeated, And lonely tears would start. Not understanding how to love, It simply broke his heart.

To love meant to be happy, And yet it also brought him pain; For those he loved could hurt him Again.. and yet again.

He wandered through the meadows In the moon’s soft, silver light. He loved to gaze at all the stars That lightened up the night.

His mother held him lovingly And tried to ease his fears About the sadness life could bring... The lonely, bitter tears.

But now he’s in a loving place Where all his pain has ceased, Where all accepted him and his love, Where all he knows is peace.

He listened to the music Of the birds that graced the trees. He frolicked with the butterflies And raced the gentle breeze.

She said, “Life is like a mountain, (And surely this is true) That we must climb as best we can. There’s no ‘around or ‘through.’”

1936 ~ 2011 It is with heavy hearts that we announce the sudden passing of Al Wipp ( Wipper) of Kamloops on April 11, 2011 at the age of 75, Al passed away at R.I.H. surrounded by his family. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Millie, and also left behind to cherish his love and memories are his children Lyle (Debbie) of Kamloops, and Melody ( James) Grominsky of Kitchener Ontario, his grandchildren Jessica (Cody), Katie (Roland), Jennifer and Nick and great granddaughter Cierra, his brother Harvey (Albina) and sister Fern (Albert) Volcano and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Predeceased by his parents Gunnard and Esther Wipp and brother Irving (Audrey).

He will be greatly missed.

Born in Medicine Hat, Alberta in 1936, Al first moved to Vernon and then Kamloops where he married Millie in 1961. Logging was his life’s work for 32 years. He loved the outdoors and was an avid skier and loved to hunt, fish, snowmobile and camp with family and friends.

Friends and Family are invited to a Gathering that will take place from 1 to 4pm on Saturday, April 16th, 2011 at 2555 Tupela Drive Kamloops BC.

The illness that caused Indigo’s departure was quick and painless. She died with the same dignity and grace that characterized her life.

The family of Ernie Colman would like to express our heart-felt gratitude to our friends, neighbours and coworkers for the many acts of kindness, words of comfort, flowers, messages of sympathy, remembrances and donations in lieu of flowers following the death of our Dad.

There lived a little unicorn (From when the earth was new), His coat so white it glistened, His eyes a sparkling blue. In innocence and beauty, He danced through woods and streams. The animals danced with him, His heart aglow with dreams.

A loving Being tells him, “You’re delightful as you are.” His spirit free, his brilliance now Outshines the brightest star!
