Tracey Louvros will be donating her kidney on May 2 as part of a six-person transplant-operation scenario at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver that will ultimately help her neighbour, Dave Kozoris. He has no kidneys as they were removed last year, the inevitable result of polycystic kidney disease. Jeremy Deutsch/KTW

T MAY SEEM like some farfetched Grey’s Anatomy plot, but this one is true. On May 2, six operating rooms at St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver will be occupied at the same time to remove three kidneys from donors and put them into three other people who need the organs desperately. Two of those people will be from Kamloops. Tracey Louvros started the long process to determine suitability just to help her neighbour, Dave Kozoris. She had always hoped it would be simple; she would be a match for Dave, they would head into the hospital and, just like neighbours share cups of sugar, she’d share one of her kidneys. It wasn’t to be, however, so the two were thrown into the mix in what will become almost like a domino procedure. Three kidneys will be removed. XSee EXTENDED STAY A21

Janie Hebert and Emily Pile, animal-health technicians at the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic, prep Ellie for a procedure. On Tuesday, April 26, the 12-year-old lab underwent a stem-cell procedure to treat her arthritis, the first animal in B.C. do have the procedure done in a clinic. Jeremy Deutsch/KTW

Stem-cell transplant goes to the dogs By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

Just a few short months ago, it seemed unlikely Ellie would ever be able to enjoy something as simple as a long walk with her owner. But Tuesday, April 26, was a big day for the 12-year-old lab cross. The faithful canine underwent a breakthrough medical procedure at the Kamloops Veterinary Clinic — the first in B.C. to be done in a veterinary clinic. Ellie has suffered with severe hip dysplasia for years and has

Finance rates starting from

arthritis in both her hips. The two conditions have left her stiff and make it difficult for her to get up. In the coming days and weeks, however, all that will change. In a treatment that may sound to some like science fiction, Ellie had her stem cells harvested and then re-injected into the affected area. More specifically, the vet took a little bit of fat tissue from Ellie’s shoulder blades. The tissue was then processed in a machine to isolate the stem cells. They were bathed in platelet-

rich plasma and then stimulated to do the necessary repair work. From there, the cells were reinjected back into Ellie’s problem joints. The whole process took a few hours, allowing Ellie to leave the clinic the same day. “It’s really cutting-edge stuff,” said Dr. Paula Davies, a vet at the clinic who also happens to be Ellie’s owner. “It’s exciting.” And, unlike harvesting stem cells from bone marrow, which is also a common method, Davies suggested harvesting fat cells is less invasive and comes without complications like rejection or

allergic reactions. Ellie, for example only needed to be sedated for the procedure. “It’s all done in one day and the dog goes home at the end of the day,” she said. Davies said the clinic hasn’t come up with exact cost of the procedure, but she figured it will be slightly cheaper than keeping Ellie on non-steroidal antiinflammatory medication for a year. The procedure, which is also available for cats, is expected to keep Ellie in good shape for up to three years. The medical advancement

also has the clinic looking into the future by harvesting and banking stem cells to be used for injections at a later date. As for Ellie, she should start to see positive results from the procedure almost immediately, but will likely need sometime before she starts running and jumping again. But, when the lab has fully recovered, she will be able to join Davies on all kinds of outdoor adventures.

$40-million mall sale a ‘good sign’ By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It was a big purchase that seemed to catch some in the business community off-guard. But, the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association (KCBIA) is cautiously optimistic the sale of the downtown Lansdowne Village shopping centre to an Ontario company will be good for the area. KCBIA general manager Gay Pooler said there is always some trepidation when a business changes hands, but she sees the blockbuster sale as a sign of confidence in the downtown. “It shows outside investors are looking at Kamloops as a positive place to invest their money,” she said. “That’s a good sign.” Last week, it was announced Lansdowne Village had been sold by Progressive Properties for $40.7 million. Toronto-based Whiterock Real Estate Investment Trust, a real-estate investment trust that trades on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol WRK.UN, has partnered with Return on Innovation Capital Ltd. to make the purchase, with the sale expected to be complete late this spring. Whiterock will hold a 40 per cent interest and be property manager for Lansdowne. A call to the company for comment was not returned by KTW press deadline. Pooler noted the mall is the singlelargest commercial property downtown and she hopes the new owners will continue the working relationship the former owners enjoyed with the KCBIA. Lansdowne Village underwent a major renovation in 2005 when the Property Development Group transformed what was the enclosed Thompson Park Mall into what is now a 191,000-square-foot shopping centre, anchored by Cooper’s Foods and housing London Drugs, Tim Hortons and Fields, along with other tenants. Lansdowne is 96 per cent leased, with an average lease term of seven years. Meanwhile, other malls in Kamloops are holding their own. Donna Markin, general manager of Aberdeen Mall, told KTW there has been plenty of activity in the mall in the first quarter of 2011.

Though a couple of stores in the mall closed, a handful of new ones are set to open, including a Blenz Coffee, Baskin Robbins and a 2,000 square-foot ultrasound clinic. Markin noted the mall only has two vacancies. “I think there is interest in the marketplace,” she said, also noting an increase in the reinvestment by tenants already in the market. Sahali Centre Mall is also finding success with events it holds. Mall manager Marg Archibald said events in the mall have brought new people into the shopping centre, with some becoming regular customers. In January, it was announced American retailer Target had purchased up to 220 Zellers leases across the country. Zellers is one of the main anchors at Sahali Centre mall, along with Safeway. Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC), the parent company of Zellers, sold its leases to the Target Corporation for $1.8 billion. However, under the agreement, Target doesn’t actually have to take control of all 220 leases and can take as many as it wants. It is expected between 120 and 150 Target stores will open across the country by 2013 or 2014. Archibald said mall officials are in talks with Target, which does indicate some interest by the U.S retailer, but nothing has been confirmed as to its plans for the local Zellers store. Freda Colbourne, a spokesperson with the HBC, told KTW in January the remaining stores will continue to be operated as Zellers, while others could be sold to competing retailers interested in purchasing the leases. “It just depends on the community. It just depends on the area,” she said. Meanwhile, whether Target can use the Target name in Canada will be the decision of a court. Target will be in Federal Court on May 2, seeking an injunction to block the Canadian company that owns the Fairweather chain from using the name Target Apparel. INC Group of Toronto has owned the Canadian rights to the Target name for 10 years and operates a number of Target Apparel stores in Canada, including one in Nanaimo. INC is also the U.S. Target corporation for $250 million, alleging copyright infringement in Canada.

The Easter bruin arrives

PICKING UP BUNNY’S BOUNTY This trio of toddlers collected colourful chocolate surprises on the search for treats the Easter bunny left behind during his visit to the B.C. Wildlife Park on the weekend. Easter egg hunters Kawato Holmes (left), Shawn Hodgkiss and Lilliana Downey filled their baskets on a glorious Saturday morning. Dave Eagles/KTW

You can’t blame a bear for at least trying to get his paws on some delicious Easter goodies. Kamloops Mounties were called to the 1700block of Pinegrass Street on Sunday night (April 25) after a black bear wandered into a family’s garage and car, looking for treats. Police said the homeowners pulled into their garage and took their kids inside. When they came out to get another load from their vehicle, the bear was in the garage. By the time police arrived, the bear had firmly planted its behind in the car, noshing on leftover Easter candy. Fortunately, officers were able to scare off the bear to a wooded area and neither the bruin nor any people were injured.

Kamloops chamber likes parkade plan By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

With only six days until city council makes its decision on the proposed Lorne Street parkade, the business community has voted. The board of directors of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce has voted to support the plan for Riverside Park. Chamber president Peter Aylen said there are several reasons for the support, including the need for additional parking in the downtown. He said the business vacancy rate is hovering in the 30 per cent range, noting taxes will increase if there is further decay downtown. “It’s something important to the business community,” Aylen said, adding the chamber doesn’t have an issue with the location, since the plan is to build on an already existing parking lot. The chamber also likes planned landscaping

for the area. All but one director voted in favour of the parkade, while two abstained. The overall plan is to take the existing Riverside Park parking lot on the north side of Lorne Street between First and Second avenues and turn it into a parkade that would accommodate 493 vehicles. The cost of the parkade is pegged at $10 million, which works out to roughly $28,000 per new stall. Aylen said it would be a huge cost if the city was to go the expropriation route and buy an alternate piece of land for the parkade. He hopes the chamber’s stance will influence council to vote in favour of the parkade, adding the business community pays a significant amount of taxes — something council should also consider in its decision making. Council will vote on the project at city hall on May 3.

Wishful thinking leads to the Oasis By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It started with a documentary on the Discovery Channel. Now, Chad Hellingman is aboard the largest cruise ship in the world. The 16-year-old Westsyde secondary Grade 10 student and his family are on the Oasis of the Seas, sailing through the Caribbean. Chad, who suffers from a congenital heart defect and is missing a pulmonary valve, received the trip from the Make-a-Wish Foundation. He said the choice for his wish was an easy one. “I saw the documentary on Discovery Channel,” he said. “I’ve been on a couple of cruises and I was like, ‘I like cruises.’” So, Chad decided to take the

ultimate cruise, aboard the ship featured in last summer’s documentary series Mighty Ships. Oasis of the Seas is a Royal Caribbean cruise ship, tipping the scales at more than 225,000 tons and measuring more than 360 metres in length. It rises 72 metres — more than 20 storeys — above the water line. And, what is Chad most excited about? “Everything,” he said. “Probably my room. I’ve never had a balcony room before.” If you asked Chad’s mom, Diana, she would say her youngest son is excited to spend the week in the Caribbean with his older brother. The Make-a-Wish Foundation’s rules generally only allow children Chad’s age to

Authorized by the official agent for the Cathy McLeod campaign

travel with their parents. But, because his 19-year-old brother, Sean, lives away from home — attending university in upstate New York — Chad is allowed to bring him as a friend. “I haven’t seen him for a while,” Chad said of his brother, who is a sophomore math major and soccer player at Daemen College outside Buffalo. Speaking with KTW at the airport prior to beginning the journey to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., where the Oasis of the Seas’ home port — Port Everglades — is located, Diana appeared almost as excited as Chad. “I’m so over the top,” she said. Chad agreed. “She’s been screaming for the last week,” he said. “We’ve been telling her to be quiet.”

Debating the issues without worrying about the score

T

ONIGHT’S DEBATE between the five federalelection candidates is already a step ahead of the last political debate to take place in the Grand Hall at Thompson Rivers University — thanks to NHL schedule-makers. There will be no Vancouver Canucks’ playoff game to compete with tonight’s forum, unlike in 2009, when the media-sponsored debate for provincial-election candidates occurred on Thursday, May 7, right opposite Game 4 of the second-round playoff series between Vancouver and Chicago. I asked moderator Bill O’Donovan to ask the audience to not spill the beans on the game as some of us were taping the contest at home. Alas, in the last 15 minutes of the evening, as the final few attendees lined up at the microphone to ask questions, a meathead prefaced his query by noting the Blackhawks had defeated the Canucks in overtime. Where was Raffi Torres when we needed a cheap shot? In any event, tonight’s debate will be free of such verbal misconducts, though whether we see another Canucks’ game this spring depends on the outcome of last night’s Game 7 at home against Chicago. The game took place after press deadline and a day after this column was written, but I staked a wager or two on the Canuckleheads, so I write this confident the squad avoided the epic collapse. As for the debate, it will likely be lively, loud and long — as these media debates always are. Unlike some other campaign forums, tonight’s features all five candidates — Cathy McLeod

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS (Conservative), Michael Crawford (NDP), Murray Todd (Liberal), Donovan Cavers (Green) and Chris Kempling (Christian Heritage) — and offers a format that allows voters to ask direct questions of those candidates, with no vetting of queries. Such forums always attract decided voters who lob softball questions at their preferred candidates: “Mr. Crawford. Can you tell me how an NDP government would be fantastic for Canada?” They also lure decided voters who preface an alleged question with a rambling statement: “Ms. Mcleod, your party has destroyed the country, catered to big business, robbed the working poor, poisoned the environment, interfered in international affairs, ruled with an autocratic arrogance and contributed to four of six Canadian NHL teams missing the playoffs this year. Can you tell me why?” These we endure, while O’Donovan has become quite adept at encouraging them to cut to the chase. Conventional wisdom has the Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo race being once again between McLeod and Crawford, as it was in the 2008 federal election. The latest national poll by Ekos,

conducted between April 22 and April 24, has the Conservatives with 34 per cent of decided voter support, followed by the New Democrats (28 per cent), the Liberals (24 per cent), the Greens (seven per cent) and the Bloc Quebecois (six per cent). The provincial numbers mirror those figures: Conservatives (35 per cent), NDP (30 per cent), Liberals (25 per cent) and Greens (10 per cent). Translated into seats federally, Ekos is projecting the Conservatives with 131 seats, followed by the NDP (100), Liberals (62), Bloc Quebecois (14) and one independent. In B.C., Ekos is projecting the Conservatives with 15 seats, the NDP with 13 seats and the Liberals with eight seats. In 2008 locally, McLeod won with 46.2 per cent of the vote, 5,600 votes ahead of Crawford, who garnered 35.9 per cent of ballots cast. Liberal candidate Ken Sommerfeld earned 9.8 per cent of support, edging past the Greens’ Cavers by only 945 votes. There are many who are calling for Cavers to finish third in Monday’s election, ahead of Todd and Kempling. Cavers has certainly run an effective campaign with few dollars, while Todd was hurt by the decision of stalwart Liberals Gur Singh and Frank Quinn to support McLeod. Tonight’s forum at TRU will almost certainly feature a packed house. The same cannot be said of electionday turnout. The last time we went to the polls, on Oct. 14, 2008, was historic in that voter turnout was the lowest in Canadian history. Only 58.8 per cent of registered voters (13.9 million of 23.7 million) bothered to cast a ballot. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

On Friday, April 29, an estimated two-billion people around the world will be glued to their televisions at all hours of the day and night to watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton. They’ll also be able to view the pomp and ceremony on an official royal YouTube channel, or a royal wedding app on their iPhone, or follow it on a live blog with integrated Twitter feed. There’s no escaping the hype. According to the technology firm Greenlight, the royal wedding is being mentioned 9,000 times a day online, or about once every 10 seconds. There are six times more people excited about the wedding than those that couldn’t care less. No detail is too minute or mundane for scrutiny, from speculation on Middleton’s dress and who’s designing it, to the guest list, the gifts, the appetizers, the menu. The cynics, meanwhile, roll their eyes. They dismiss the royal family as irrelevant; they don’t make decisions, they don’t create policy. They scorn their lavish lifestyles of privilege as a needless burden on taxpayers struggling to pay the rent and buy groceries in recessionary times. They shake their heads at the expense and attention paid to a royal wedding as an affront when people are dying in wars, struggling to rebuild their lives after disasters, dealing with the daily challenges of disease, starvation and poverty. But, it’s those very realities that pique our interest and curiosity about the royals, their wealth, their lifestyles, their foibles. It’s human nature to seek escape from all the challenges of just getting through the day, whether it’s turning up the volume on a favourite song as we’re stuck in traffic, to popping into the coffee shop for a calorie-laden snack, to scanning the headlines on the gossip magazines as we stand in line at the grocery store checkout. For most, the royal wedding is no more than that, a diversion. So sit back and enjoy. The problems of the world return on Saturday. — Burnaby NewsLeader

Re: Kamloops Chamber of Commerce likes parkade plan: “A parkade in the park is not going to have people running downtown to open up a business. “How stupid. “The price for rental space will need to go way down for that to happen and people will need to have a reason to go downtown to shop. “I don’t shop downtown for the simple reason that prices are far too high for what you get. “I don’t need the latest fashions. I just want to dress cleanly and neatly at the best price I can find. “Downtown businesses need to find a way to compete with the malls and other stores and then people will go downtown, more space will be rented and the downtown will thrive. — posted by Grouchy1 “The chamber was also pro-ACC. They don’t get it!” — posted by KamloopsBC “Question for chamber president Peter Aylen: Are you, or the Chamber, opposed to a parkade, in the same price range, being built elsewhere downtown?” — posted by Dorite

Please — no more atheist ads Editor: When I heard of the atheist ads on city buses, I thought I could deal with them. However, once I read that they were here, I get a sick feeling in the pit of my stomach thinking

about them. Please, for my love of our great and awesome God, they should not be allowed again. Jeanette Noordam Kamloops

Editor: As fire chief for the District of Hope Fire Department and a member of the Fire Chiefs’ Association of B.C., I have seen firsthand the dedication of volunteer firefighters and their positive impact on the lives of residents and businesses around British Columbia. Did you know that more than 70 per cent of all firefighters in Canada are volunteers? They might be your teacher, plumber, home builder or community leader who gives up their own time to train and prepare for when they are called upon in desperate times of need. The Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association (CVFSA) — a national organization created to benefit the community by maintaining and strengthening Canadian volunteer fire services — has partnered with Duracell — a company with a dedicated history of supporting fire services while promoting fire safety — to develop a campaign that calls on all Canadians to show their support for the thousands of brave men and women who go the distance to protect more than 3,000 Canadian firedepartment jurisdictions across the country whenever a fire emergency strikes. I encourage all British Columbians to show their thanks for our Canadian volunteer firefighters by supporting the Power Those Who Protect Us campaign on now by the Canadian Volunteer Fire Services Association and Duracell. All you have to do is buy a specially marked pack of AA20 Duracell batteries and two batteries will be added to a donation that goes to volunteer fire departments across Canada. Batteries might seem like a small item but, just as they power many important devices in our homes, batteries are the key power source in a variety of firefighting and lifesaving equipment. Communication devices and life-saving equipment like flashlights, thermal imaging cameras, chemical detectors, and defibrillators are just some examples of the battery-powered tools that firefighters use to protect the communities they serve. Thank you for your support, Tom DeSorcy fire chief District of Hope Fire Department Hope

Driver versus crosswalk sign means tickets A driver will likely get some face time in front of a judge after crashing his car into a crosswalk sign in South Kamloops. The incident began Sunday night (April 25) after police received three reports of a possibly impaired driver on Summit Drive near the 7-Eleven. A short time later, emergency crews were called to a crash at Ninth Avenue and Dominion Street, where a Pontiac Sunfire was damaged after hitting a crosswalk sign. Police noted the driver and passenger were intoxicated, arrested both and took them back to RCMP cells. The driver gave two breath samples in which both came back over twice the legal limit. Police are seeking charges including driving while impaired and driving while over the .08 legal limit.

Flip-flop — oh dear! The same evening, in an unrelated incident, emergency crews were called to a single-

POLICE BEAT vehicle accident in the 1600-block of Rose Hill Road. A witness told police they heard a crash and saw a vehicle flip on its side on the roadway. When Mounties arrived, the vehicle was already back on its wheels. The driver, who was unhurt, told police he swerved to avoid a deer. He was not charged.

Teen cut by machete A Kamloops teen is recovering in hospital after being attacked by a machete. Mounties were first called to the corner of 10th Street and Tranquille Road Saturday night (April 23) for three men fighting. A witness saw two of the men carrying a knife and a machete. Police discovered two 18-year-olds had been slashed. One teen had a cut

on his forearm and refused treatment, while a second teen received a serious head injury and was taken to Royal Inland Hospital for treatment. As of Saturday (April 23), the victim was listed in critical but stable condition.

Investigators are trying to piece together what was behind the fight, but note one of the victims involved in the attack was involved in another incident earlier that day. During the first altercation at Eighth Street and Tranquille Road, the teen received minor wounds to his chest. Police said the two attacks appear to be

targeted, noting the victims in both cases haven’t given any information to investigators.

Easter ticket parade Kamloops Mounties were busy handing out a number of tickets during the Easter long weekend. In all, a dozen people were taken to RCMP cells during a three-night period and given fines of $115

under the province’s liquor laws. A man was knocked out in front of Cactus Jack’s Saloon just before closing on Sunday morning (April 24), but, when emergency crews arrived to help, he woke up, refused help and fled. Down the street at Rivers Night Club, police arrested a man after he kicked a door, causing significant

damage. The bar’s staff told police the 25-year-old man had been kicked out of the club earlier and returned. When he wasn’t refused entry again, he kicked a door. He was taken to RCMP cells to sober up and later released with a charge of mischief and ticketed for being drunk in public in public.

We will all be screaming for ice cream tonight

F

or many ice cream lovers, it will be like turning back the clock a few decades. For one evening tonight (April 27), Baskin Robbins ice cream shops across the country, including the North Kamloops location, will be selling a scoop of the good stuff for just 31 cents. The low price, a throwback to a previous generation, is part of a national fundraiser for the Canadian Fallen Firefighters Foundation. All money raised from the event will go toward the fund, which supports families of fallen firefighters. The money is also going toward the construction of a firefighter memorial in Ottawa. Anisha Nihalani, owner of the Kamloops Baskin Robbins at 685 Tranquille Rd., said it’s

important to honour firefighters who gave their lives to service. “We have to remember our firefighters, who have given up their lives to save and protect us,” she said. At the Kamloops store, the event will include activities and appearances from Kamloops Fire Rescue members. As residents wait for their scoop, they’ll get a chance to tour a fire truck and mingle with local firefighters. The fundraiser runs from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., with a limit of two scoops per person. It’s likely to be a busy night as it will be the first time the new Kamloops store, known for its 31 flavours, will be taking part in the event. Nihalani noted the shop has been fielding plenty of calls from people interested in the fundraiser.

A river won’ t run through it in Westsyde Riverbank stabilzation project is completed as mighty North Thompson is kept at bay By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It may not have looked pretty, but the heavy construction and loud noise just a few feet from Tony Berkhout’s backyard was music to his ears this month. That’s because the work was the culmination of more than four years of effort by Berkhout and his Westsyde neighbours to stop their yards from being gobbled up by the North Thompson River. “It’s excellent,” he said of the construction, noting he had lost between 15 and 20 feet of ground from river erosion. More than two years ago, 10 Westsyde property owners approached city council for assistance, insisting their properties — located between Bermer Place and Bank Road — along with a right-of-way at the end of Garnet Road and a sewer outfall have suffered serious erosion since an ice jam in the river in 2006. Beginning in mid-February, crews were busy stabilizing the river bank, which included work on sloping

the bank and building out 40 feet of heavy rock. Eventually, $90,000 worth of plants and irrigation will help beautify the area where the repairs took place. At the time of the residents’ request, the city had put the request third on its list of priorities for provincial flood-protection funding. However, residents received good news in September 2009, when the project qualified for federal stimulus, or “shovel-ready”, funding. The cost of the work was estimated at $960,000, with the residents picking up one-third of the tab. Eight of the 10 affected property owners signed on to a local areaservice agreement that will see them cover $275,000 worth of work to halt riverbank erosion in the area. Berkhout, who has lived in his home at the end of Garnet for 38 years, estimated his cost of the project would be between $30,000 to $45,000. “It’s costing us a lot of money, but it’s worth it,” he said, noting he wouldn’t want to move and look for a new home.

Tony Berkhout, a longtime Westsyde resident is happy to see the work along the rivershore get underway. The cost of the work to keep the Thompson River at bay was estimated at $960,000, with the residents picking up one-third of the tab. Eight of the 10 affected property owners signed on to a local area-service agreement that will see them cover $275,000 worth of work to halt riverbank erosion in the area. Dave Eagles/KTW

LOCAL NEWS WHAT A DEAL! No, it’s not a dream — nor is it reality, unfortunately. The Esso station at Hillside Way and Rogers Way in Aberdeen appears to be offering the best in gas prices. Actually, the readerboard has been reset to $0.00 while maintenance work is being done at the station. The brutal truth about gas prices can be seen on the Petro-Canada sign in the background.

TRU, faculty association reach tentative deal Thompson Rivers University has reached a tentative two-year agreement with the Thompson Rivers University Faculty Association under the government’s 2010 mandate of zero net increase in costs. The tentative agreement covers approximately 500 full-time employees, including faculty-instructors, counsellors, librarians and instructional support employees at TRU. Faculty association members are expected to vote on the agreement in the coming weeks. Last year, government announced its intention to control spending on wages during this round of bargaining, with no funding for new wage increases as collective agreements are renewed. “It’s great news that a tentative agreement with the TRU Faculty Association has been reached within the negotiating framework,” said Finance Minister Kevin Falcon. “This is another example of collaborative work resulting in a positive outcome.” Added TRU president and vice-chancellor Alan Shaver: “We are extremely pleased to have come to a tentative agreement. “We believe that this partnership with our faculty will continue our tradition of academic excellence and quality student experience.”

COVER PAGE STORY According to the Kidney Foundation of Canada, a kidney transplant is now widely considered to be the best way of treating chronic kidney disease for many people. A transplant may offer the best chance of returning to a more normal life, but it is not suitable for everyone. Before any transplant, some of the recipient’s blood and some of the donor’s cells are mixed together to determine if the recipient’s blood will damage or kill the donor’s cells. This is called a cross-match and it is done to ensure there are no substances in the blood, called cytotoxic antibodies, that may cause the recipient’s body to reject the transplanted kidney. A positive cross-match test means the donor (whether live or deceased) is not compatible with the recipient and cannot donate a kidney. Overall, transplant success rates are very good. Transplants from deceased donors have an 85 to 90 per cent success rate for the first year. That means that, after one year, 85 to 90 out of every 100 transplanted kidneys are still functioning. Live donor transplants have a 90 to 95 per cent success rate. Long-term success is good for people of all ages.

Tracey’s will go into one of the recipients and Dave will get one of the other two donor kidneys. The couple doesn’t know who the other four people are — but it doesn’t matter. All that’s important now is getting it done. They got the call earlier this month and were given May 2 as the tentative date and to be ready to go. “The biggest holdup was they needed six operating rooms at the same time,” Dave said. “The logistics are quite a feat.” The surgeries will take a couple of hours, he said, and, while Tracey’s recovery is expected to just take about six weeks, Dave has to stay in Vancouver for a couple of months, at least, so medical staff can monitor him and watch for organ rejection. That’s going to be a bit of a challenge since he has no place to stay and is looking at motels near the hospital because he has to be within a 15-minute drive to St. Paul’s in downtown Vancouver. Insurance doesn’t cover accommodation, but Dave and his wife, Betty, don’t care. They will find a way to make it work because they just want the transplant and an end to the more than four years of dialysis Dave has had to live with, the last three using equipment in his house. Dave has no kidneys. They were removed last year, the inevitable result of polycystic kidney disease that meant the organs filled with grape-shaped growths, shoving his other organs out of position. When the kidneys were removed, one weighed 20 pounds; the other was seven pounds. Healthy kidneys rarely weigh more than four ounces. It’s been a long haul for Tracey and Dave. In addition to loads of paperwork, Tracey’s medical history had to be studied and she had to ensure her body was not only healthy, but at a specific body-mass index level. There have been dozens and dozens of vials of blood taken out and plenty of other medical procedures, all to ensure she and her kidney are healthy when the first incision is made. Neither is worried, the neighbours agree. Instead, they are both excited to see this path they’ve shared coming to an end. “I’m just as excited as can be,” Dave said. “It’s gonna be great.” Future Shop – Correction Notice Please note that the incorrect image was advertised for the Fujifilm XP20 14.0 Megapixel Digital Camera (WebID: 10164965/62) found on page 13 of the April 22 flyer.

Scouts out to tout at Male U16 B.C. Cup By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

F AN INORDINATE number of middle-age, well-dressed men holding Starbucks’ cups are seen huddled, talking quietly among themselves, on the streets of Kamloops’ downtown core this week, do not be alarmed — they’re probably hockey scouts. The talent assessors (OK, not all of them wear pea coats and prefer the Seattle java giant’s brand) are in the River City for the Male U16 B.C. Cup, which gets underway on Thursday, April 28, and runs through May 1. “It’s the last time we get to see the players play

before the bantam draft,” said Matt Recchi, the Kamloops Blazers’ director of player personnel. “Typically, it’s the best kids in the province, so you get good competition throughout the weekend.” The province’s top-200 players — selected based on their performances at under16 zone camps — will be split into 10 teams, which face off in a jamboree-style tournament. Valleyview Arena and Interior Savings Centre will host the practices, which run from 10 a.m. to about 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, and the games, which get underway at 8 a.m. on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

For a full schedule, log on to bchockey.net. Ken Fox, Greg Batters, Grant Evans, Rick Allen and Royel Caswell are the Blazers’ scouts joining Recchi at the B.C. Cup. Kamloops will draft fourth at the WHL Bantam Draft, which is scheduled for May 5 in Calgary. Recchi said the Blazers’ brass have narrowed down their group of potential firstround picks to about six players but, as is to be expected, the club is mum on their identities. Two of the players from B.C. expected to go high in the draft are forwards Jacob Virtanen of Abbotsford and Ryan Gropp of Kamloops,

both of whom will be in action this week in the Tournament Capital. Gropp played for the tier 1 Kamloops Jardine’s Blazers, as did Carter Cochrane, Carson Bolduc, Joe Hicketts, Chad Butcher, Mason Harding, Nicholas Fidanza, Liam McLeod, Mitchell Barker, Kyle Michalovsky and Matt Murray, all of whom were selected to participate at the B.C. Cup. Kamloops’ Connor Brown-Maloski, who played for Kelowna’s Pursuit of Excellence, will also suit up at the B.C. Cup. Every player in action this week has a chance to improve their standing with WHL clubs or, on the flip-side, slip

down the draft board with a sub-par performance. But, for the most part, scouts have done enough homework to know what the majority of the participating players have to offer. “A player can go up or down a little bit, but we don’t put too, too much stock into the event,” Recchi said. “It’s just another tool that we use to gauge players throughout the whole year. “We see these kids anywhere from 10 to 20 times. If you judge it all on how they perform in one tournament, you’ll be in trouble at the end of the day.” All the players at the B.C. Cup-level have been scrutinized before — that’s

nothing new. What might be new — and what will be interesting for scouts to watch — is how they perform under pressure against lineups that are stacked, top to bottom. “If they’re going to be a high first-round pick, they’re going to have to learn to perform under pressure,” Recchi said. “The top players, you want to see them perform at their best at this event.” Those who do perform at an optimum level will have a good shot at being selected to attend the U16 Provincial Camp, which runs from June 29 to July 4 in Penticton.

Kamloops’ tournament count grows by one By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops has yet another reason to call itself the Tournament Capital of Canada. After a successful trial run at the Canada Games Pool earlier this month, the Evergreen Invitational, an under14 Western Canadian water-polo tournament, will likely be an annual event in the River City. “It was a great facility, a lot better than we have in Vancouver, actually,� said tournament director Bruce

The Storm’s president, Rob Fraser, said it’s his club’s goal — and Water Polo B.C.’s goal — to promote the game in the Interior and the Evergreen Tournament is one way to do that. Tout echoed Fraser’s sentiments. “We’re trying to get

I was amazed by the help I got getting that tournament going.� Tout made special mention of the city’s aquatics co-ordinator, Heidi Ogilvie, who did her part to make sure the event went off without a hitch. The Evergreen tournament featured teams from B.C. and Alberta — the Storm, the Calgary Torpedoes,

Blazers ponder first-round selection XFrom A23

The top 68 players from the B.C. Cup get a chance to strut their stuff at the provincial camp, which a B.C. Hockey press release describes as a place to “showcase the best talent that B.C. has to offer at the male under16 level.” The Blazers’ strategy with the fourth pick is simple: Pick the best player available, regardless of position. “We feel we’ve got depth at forward and defence, so now we’re planning just to take the best player available, whether it’s a defenceman or forward,” Recchi said. Kamloops will select at least 10 players at the draft, added Recchi. Highly-touted youngsters who might wind up on the Blazers’ roster with the fourth pick include Gropp, Virtanen, Chase Martin, a defenceman from Calgary, Ryan Pilon, a defenceman from Saskatchewan, and Jordan Thomson, a defenceman from Manitoba.

That being said, the Classics will enter a team in the Evergreen tournament next year. “It would just be a fun thing for us to do,” Dalke said. “It’s certainly not a focus.” The Classics already use water polo as a training tool twice-weekly. “I just sort of use

it as a cross-training thing with the kids,” Dalke said. “We’ve been swimming since September and I do it just to change things up for the kids, rather than pulling them out of the water and doing dryland activities.” Kamloops’ summer swim club — the Tsunami — does not

coach for a Kamloops squad. “It would be neat if we could get the summer swim club up there involved with water polo in the summertime,” Tout said. “I think B.C Water Polo was actually going to talk to [the Tsunami] because we could supply a coach for them.”

Wanna rock and roll all night?

And party every day? As the radio ads have been hinting, KISS is a band that’s been around for more than 35 years and has recorded 37 albums that have sold in the multi-millions around the world. Now, Kamloops prepares for its KISS as the band brings its tour to the city on June 26 for a 7:30 p.m. show at Interior Savings Centre. And, to think it’s all thanks to Epic Records, which rejected an album in 1972 recorded by Wicked Lester — a New York-based band fronted by Paul Stanley and Gene Simmons. The duo saw an ad in Rolling Stone magazine later that year from a drummer “looking to do anything to make it” and auditioned Peter Criss. In January 1973, the three auditioned Ace Frehley for lead guitarist and Wicked Lester became KISS. Stanley takes credit for the name; Frehley designed the logo that has stood the test of time — as has the band. And, for you trivia buffs out there, the first time Simmons tried his fire-breathing stunt in concert was Dec. 31, 1973 — and he set his hair on fire. In making the announcement, local promoter Bill Jaswal of Jelly Productions says landing Shania Twain was big, but this is bigger and definitely the biggest rock concert in the B.C. Interior. And, befitting a mega-band, ticket prices are memorable, too, starting at $125 and climbing to $175 plus service charges and taxes. Tickets go on sale on Friday, April 29 at 10 a.m. at ticketmaster.ca, the ISC box office at 300 Lorne St., or by calling 1-855-985-5000. There’s a limit of eight tickets per order.

Artists and artisans are needed for the annual Spring Festival sponsored by the Kamloops Centre Business Improvement Association. The event runs from May 11 to May 14 downtown and, on the final day, the 300-block of Victoria Street will be open to creative Kamloopsians to sell or demonstrate their craft. Registration is $25 and participants must meet Kamloops Arts Council criteria. Applications and payment must be received by the council at its office, 7 West Seymour St., by May 7.

Artists needed

Yuk Yuk’s comedian Garrett Clark was born in Canada but spent much of his life in Australia — and he used that life experience as fodder for his set at a comedy night at Rivers Night Club. Dale Bass/KTW

HE GOAL was to provide an alternative to what co-owner Angela Jackson called the “mature” crowd — and Rivers Night Club succeeded. The club plans to offer a night of comedy twice a month with an eye on the crowd that, for the most part avoids venues that advertise DJs, loud rock, metal — all that stuff that appeals to the younger set. The first comedy night on Thursday, April 21, was sold out; in fact, I moved from my table to a seat at the bar so a couple celebrating their anniversary, but who hadn’t bought tickets, could have a place to sit. The evenings will begin with a buffet dinner created by nearby Bistro 3.2.6. On the opening night, the menu included ribs, lasagna, Thai rice, shrimp, mashed potatoes, salads, hummus, desserts — yes, I made two trips. Comedians will come from the heralded Yuk Yuk’s entourage

For example, in Australia a thong “is a flip-flop, people, not a G-string,” he joked. And, he cracked wise about his beginning career, noting he’d prefer to avoid shows in places with the words “Prince, Fort or Lumby” in their names. Miller used his First Nations heritage for much of his set, calling himself Caucasionally impaired and joking that, if he stood in an aisle at Wal-Mart too long, “you’d hear ‘security in aisle 5’.” The next comedy night is May 12 with entertainment yet to be announced.. Tickets have to be bought in advance at the club, 355 Lansdowne St. Tickets are $20 for the buffet and show, $5 for the show. For more information, email ang@riversnightclub.com.

KAG ďŹ ghts funding-cut blues

The Pregnancy, Baby and Juvenile Expo (Formerly the Kamloops Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Expo)

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Government cuts to the arts are enough to give its supporters the blues. They might even crack open some brews to deal with those blues. The folks at the Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG) are putting the two together with the first Brews and Blues Night on May 5 at The Noble Pig Brewhouse, 650 Victoria St. KAG fundraising committee member Trudi Backman said the group wanted to do something different to help out the gallery. A meeting last summer generated a long list of ideas but the one that resonated the strongest was a night of fun â&#x20AC;&#x153;where you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to get dressed up, where you can go in your jeans,â&#x20AC;? Backman said. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve even got the right mascot for the event, using a blue giraffe sculpture play-

ing a saxaphone â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a piece of art Backman bought years ago for her husband. He normally sits in a corner of their house but is on display in the gallery window now to promote the event. A combination of music, beer or wine and appetizers

anchors the evening, with entertainment provided by Cathi Marshall, Henry Small and Mike Turner â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although, Backman said, she wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised to see others in attendance get up and start a jam session going. The bar was chosen to promote the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

only micro-brewery. And for those wondering about the acoustics at the bar, the bands will be set up in a wood-panelled area toward the back of the site to boost the sound. Appies are on tap from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m., and then the music takes over. Door prizes and draws are also planned. Tickets are $40 plus HST and attendance is limited to 150 people. Tickets are available from KAG board members, at the gallery or at the pub. Money raised is not geared for any specific KAG program. Backman said there are many options and the committee is leaving it to gallery staff to decide.

Pre-Registration The ďŹ rst 100 Pregnant women to register will receive a goodie bag full of great and informative items.

Dine out for life

Celebrate Arbor Day Mayor Peter Milobar and city councillors will celebrate Arbor Day on Friday, April 29 from 10 a.m. to noon at McArthur Island Park, just west of the Boys and Girls Club of Kamloops.

Walking for peace

LOCAL NEWS Milobar will discuss the Operation Re-Leaf initiative, which envisions Kamloops planting 20,000 trees in four years. In its first three years, the city has planted 14,946 trees. Tree coupons valued at $20 will also be distributed at the event. People unable to attend who want a coupon can get one at city hall or the public works centre on weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tree coupons are available on a firstcome, first-serve basis and are limited to one per household.

Day of Mourning The Kamloops and District Labour Council marks the Day of Mourning on April 28 at 6 p.m. at St. Andrews on the Square. The annual event recognizes workers killed or injured on the job. The event is open to the public. There will be guest speakers and refreshments. It is scheduled to end at 7 p.m. April 28 is the International Day of Mourning, as recognized by the United Nationsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; human-rights efforts through the International Labour Organization (ILO). Every year, about 1,000 Canadian civilians lose their lives on the job or from workrelated disease. Thousands more suffer debilitating injuries and hundreds of thousands are injured in largely preventable accidents and incidents of workplace neglect.

Chris Rose Walk for Autism The first Chris Rose Walk for Autism is on Saturday, April 30, to

raise awareness and funds to benefit children with autism. Money raised will help the Chris Rose Therapy Centre for Autism continue to meet the needs of local children. The walk begins at the parking lot of NorKam secondary and continues around McArthur Island. Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the walk starts at 10 a.m. It wraps up with entertainment and the North Kamloops Lions and M&M Meat Shops will be on site selling lunches. Pledge and team forms can downloaded from chrisrosecentre. com or picked up at the centre, 1111 Tranquille Rd.

When the annual Kamloops Peace Walk happens on Saturday, April 30, there will be some special attention. The walk â&#x20AC;&#x201D; possibly the 36th annual although organizers arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sure when it began â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has attracted the attention of the Peace Team at the Canadian War Museum. Local organizers are working with the team to showcase artifacts from the walk, believed to be the oldest in the country, as part of a travelling exhibition that explores Canadiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work for peace over time, in various corners of the world. In particular, the museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team is interested in the walks puppets and handmade signs. X See TOMA B7

TRU nurses honoured for excellence The College of Registered Nurses of B.C. (CRNBC) has recognized two Kamloops residents with Nursing Excellence Awards. Joanne Jones and Jeanette Murray each received the Award of Excellence in Nursing Education. Both teach nursing at Thompson Rivers University. Thirty-three awards were presented this year. Through the CRNBC Nursing Excellence Awards, registered nurses honour colleagues for outstanding contributions to the nursing profession and for demonstrating excellence. The CRNBC is the regulatory body for more than 37,000 registered nurses, nurse practitioners and licensed graduate nurses in B.C. Jones was praised as being an exceptional teacher, proof of which is her colleagues ask to sit in on her classes and mentor them. “Joanne has the ability to explain difficult concepts to her students in a way they can understand,” said Murray. “There was a student who could understand the pathophysiology content if he could relate it to the operation of his car. “Joanne was able to modify her teaching to take into account his learning style.” She is famous for

her varied teaching techniques and props, such as an “anticoagulant Jeopardy” game or a “liver challenge” class. To help her students understand the effect of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease on patients, Jones brought in straws for them to breathe through while walking on the spot. Murray, who heads TRU’s school of nursing, is known for advancing nursing education on the local, regional and national level.

While her reputation has grown, colleagues still remember the impact she had over the years. Murray is recognized as a leader in her field of acute-care practice in maternal and child nursing. She has worked at the national level on the Canadian Registered Nurses Examination (CRNE) for more than 10 years, in part developing and maintaining a bank of questions. Combining expertise in maternal-child health issues with

that long-term commitment to the CRNE, Murray was recognized as one of the Top 100 Nurses in Canada by the CNA Centennial Awards. She remains active as a tutor for the TRU open-learning program, focused on perinatal nursing practice. During the transition to become a fullfledged university, Murray provided key leadership, through developing committees, educating faculty, adapting systems and ensuring academic standards.

No wonder half of the Touaregs sold in Canada are diesels. The Touareg for 2011 is also offered with a 3.6-litre 24-valve direct-injection V6 gasoline engine, producing 280 horsepower and 265 pound-feet of torque. With the V6, the Touareg achieves a fuel economy rating of 12.3L/100 km city and 8.8L/100 km highway. It uses premium unleaded fuel. Volkswagen also offers a gas-electric hybrid Touareg in the U.S, however VW Canada has chosen not to bring it here. For 2011, the Touareg is again offered in three trim lines — Comfortline, Highline and Execline, with prices starting at $53,190 for the TDI version, $48,400 with the gasoline engine.

That’s a hefty price to pay for any vehicle but, with the Touareg, you’re getting a luxury SUV that is a match with the best on the market. The wood-trimmed interior is among the nicest available and the soft, plush leather seats are extremely comfortable and at the same time supportive. Even after a long trip in the Touareg, you still feel refreshed and relaxed, unlike some vehicles where you can’t wait to get out to stretch and walk around for a while. In Comfortline trim, the Touareg comes with features like 18-inch alloy wheels, Bluetooth phone connectivity, dual zone electronic climate control and Sirius satellite radio. X See TOUAREG B11

If the vehicle runs out of AdBlue it will not start, so Touareg TDI owners can buy small containers of the solution to top up the tank located under the spare tire, if needed. Three warnings are given to drivers to alert them when AdBlue is low. While some people may find the need to refill the AdBlue tank a turnoff, the fact remains this new breed of diesel engines is head-andshoulders better than the ones they are replacing.

All Touaregs come with 4MOTION, a fulltime all-wheel drive system that can handle the worst roads you can throw at it, making the Touareg a great choice for cottagers. Volkswagen bills its 3.0-litre TDI as one of the cleanest diesels on the planet, thanks to its ability to reduce harmful nitrogen oxide emissions by up to 90 per cent. To do this, a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) catalytic converter is used. The oxidation catalytic converter and a particulate filter are integrated into the emissions system. A solution called AdBlue is then injected into the system to treat the exhaust. It is made up of water and urea and has to be replen-

VW delivers power to spare X From B11

In fact, the only smell you’ll really have to contend with is when you’re refilling them at the diesel pumps. While the TDI is more expensive than the gasoline version, you can travel up to 1,200 kilometres on a single tank — and that is benefit for anyone doing lots of long-distance driving like back-andforth to the cottage on the weekend. On the highway, the Touareg is smooth and quiet. Volkswagen estimates a zero to 100 km/h time of 7.7 seconds for the 3.6-litre and 8.2 seconds for the 3.0L TDI. Of course, where the TDI shines is in the torque department so you have the feeling of power to spare. The eight-speed automatic transmission is slick and smooth with the vehicle never seeming to be searching for the right gear. Both engines have a tow rating of 3,500 kilograms (7,700 pounds), so you can pull a big boat or travel-

trailer if needed. The 60-40 split folding rear seats slide 160 millimetres fore and aft and the seat backs recline. The front seats also feature either an eight- or 12-way power adjustment (depending on the trim level) with standard heated front seats. The rear seats have a heat feature on upperend trim models. If cargo space is an issue in your SUV, the Touareg has 908 litres (32.1 cbic feet) with the rear seats up and a whopping 2,007 litres (70.9 cubic feet) with the seats folded. While the price tag of my tester was a jaw-dropping $63,840 plus freight and PDI of $1,580, the Touareg is among the best luxury SUVs on the market, sharing its DNA with the Porsche Cayenne. So, if you’re shopping the Lexus RX 350, Infiniti FX, Mercedes ML350 Bluetec and the like, be sure to give the Touareg a go, particularly in TDI form. I think you’ll be impressed.

AUTOMARKET Chrysler unveils Ram 1500 Express Chrysler Canada has unveiled the new 2011 Ram 1500 Express pickup. The Ram 1500 Express is a new Ram Truck model aimed squarely at first-time buyers and owners who are looking for a vehicle with performance and style that they can customize and make their own. The new Ram 1500 offers buyers a standard 5.7-litre Hemi V8 engine with FuelSaver MDS technology offering 390 horsepower, 407 pound-feet of torque and 28 m.p.g. highway (10.2L/100km), for the same price as what the competition charges for a V6 with up to 195 less horsepower. The Ram 1500 Express offers an unprecedented level of style and functionality for only $1,000 MSRP over a Ram 1500 ST Truck. The first thing drivers will notice is the Ram 1500 Express’ clean, monochromatic

paint scheme. A body-coloured grille with black honeycomb inserts, bodycoloured front fascia and body-coloured rear fascia with chrometipped dual exhausts shout “high-performance.” The new Ram model will also get fog lamps and 20-inch aluminum wheels. Ram 1500 Express is proudly positioned as the most affordable truck in Canada with 20-inch wheels. Other standard features include air conditioning, six-speaker media centre with CD and MP3 player, as well as audio jack input for mobile devices, automatic headlamps, behind-the-seat storage bins, driver and passenger assist handles, power accessory delay variable intermittent windshield wipers, and much more. Ram 1500 Express is available in bright silver metallic, bright white, flame red, and mineral grey metallic.

AUTOMARKET Shine up your bikes — it’s time to ride, ladies EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN

On Friday May 6, women riders around the world will get on their motorcycles in unison

to celebrate the fifth globally synchronized International Female Ride Day.

In 2011, this unique motorcycling event unifying women motorcyclists around the planet

spans its reach yet further as more countries and women riders join the action. International Female Ride Day, whose simple theme asks women to “Just Ride,” is a designated day aimed at bringing awareness to the existing and mounting numbers of women motorcyclists, a prominent, escalating segment of the motorcycling community who ride just as much as their male counterparts. “We ride on a Friday to emphasize the fact that motorcycling for women is not only a hobby but something women incorporate into their every day lives,” said Vicki Gray, founder of the event. Since its introduction in 2007, International Female Ride Day has continued to expand. This has also been a result of the endorsement and support from the

AUTOMARKET Montante builds Maserati 8CTF EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN

Montante Cicli is building a limited-edition bike for Maserati with Unique details and an exclusive design. The new Montante Maserati 8CTF was designed to celebrate the 70th anniversary of Wilbur Shaw’s victory of the 500 miles of Indianapolis behind the wheel of a Maserati 8CTF. The Sicilian company, famous for the amazing bikes it produces, has teamed up with Maserati to deliver a product which embodies the excellence and the Italian style from both brands. The Montante for Maserati 8CTF is produced in a limited edition of just 200 pieces individually numbered. Montante for Maserati bicycles are made-tomeasure to fit the rider perfectly. As sizes vary from person to person it is important, when purchasing the frame, to choose the perfect size. The 8CTF model, a single speed bicycle, comes from one of Montante’s original designs which made it one of the leading industries in the field. Developed and produced by Montante Cicli in Italy, the Maserati 8CTF is embellished by unique and distinctive details: The silver Trident on a grey background on the hubs are inspired by the Maserati’s supercharged threelitre engine; the Maserati logo in a 1930s’ style on the frame reprises the metallic plate

identifying the car’s chassis; and the enamelled oval is a faithful reproduction of the one on the car’s hood. Last — but not least— the number one is the same as the one featured on Shaw’s car with which he won, twice in a row, the world’s most-famous American race. From the Montante-Maserati collaboration, a new bicycle has been produced for all the admirers of the Trident Marque. The limited edition Montante for 8CTF Maserati bike is made to order and is available through the online Maserati Store at maseratistore.com.

Prices in effect from Saturday, April 23 to Friday, April 29, 2011

GLOBAL VIEWS

Entire region at risk if Syria’s Assad should fall

I

T’S SAFE TO SAY we will never see an alliance between Israel and al-Qaeda. Yet, Syria’s government-controlled media hints this evil alliance exists as it grasps at any explanation, however implausible, to discredit the anti-government protests that have shaken the Baath Party’s halfcentury grip on power. The regime’s security forces have killed more than 200 Syrians since the protests began in mid-March, but government spokesmen insist they were shot down by “armed elements” who also attacked the police and the army. These armed elements are allegedly in the pay of the Israelis or al-Qaeda. It’s ridiculous and nobody believes it, but what else are the official media going to say? That the Syrian people, without distinction of ethnicity or creed, are moving toward a non-

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH violent revolution aimed at overthrowing President Bashar al-Assad and the Baathist apparatus of power? They can’t admit that, so they tell lies instead. Assad’s response to the threat has followed the pattern of other Arab dictators who have lost power: He makes concessions, but always too little and too late. On Thursday, for example, he finally declared the 48-year-old state of emergency that allowed the regime to arrest anybody and hold them without charge had been lifted.

It wasn’t much of a concession, really, since the security forces still have immunity no matter what they do and the courts are under the regime’s thumb. But, if Assad had announced it two weeks ago, it might have taken some of the steam out of the protest movement. Now, it’s too late. On Friday, the protesters came out of the mosques after prayers as usual and the regime’s troops killed some of them, as usual. The Syrian regime seems even more unimaginative and inflexible than the regimes that have already gone under in Tunisia and Egypt, so it really could go down. It’s time to ask what the fall of Assad and the Syrian Baathists would mean for the region. The answer is: It could change everything. Syria is the lynch-pin of the alliance system that has defined the region’s politics since the

late 1970s. That was when Egypt made peace with Israel, and the “Islamic” revolution overthrew the Shah in Iran. It was a complete reversal of the old order, for Egypt had previously led the Arab resistance to Israel’s conquest of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, while Iran, under the Shah, had been America’s closest ally in the Middle East. Egypt, in order to regain its own Israelioccupied territory, abandoned the Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and became a tacit ally of Israel. Jordan also made peace with Israel and, after Israel’s invasion of Lebanon in 1982, the south of that country remained under 20 years. Of all Israel’s Arab neighbours, only Syria remained a serious military opponent. Maybe the Baathist regime there would also

have made peace with Israel if it could have got its own occupied territory in the Golan Heights back, but Israel was never willing to make that concession. So, Syria was alone and needed allies — and the only potential ally in sight was the new Islamic regime in Iran. It was unusual for any Arab country to make an alliance with Iran. It was doubly strange for Syria to do so, because the Baathist regime there has always been militantly secular. But, international politics makes for strange bed-fellows, so Syria got into bed with Iran. When the Hezbollah guerilla resistance to Israeli occupation emerged in southern Lebanon, it also became a member of this peculiar Syria-Iran alliance. And, when the Hamas movement emerged in the Gaza Strip, it also joined the club.

This ill-assorted group of countries and movements — Iran and Hezbollah run by Shia extremists, Hamas dominated by Sunni fanatics and Syria a totally secular state — has provided the only real opposition to Israeli policy in the region for the past 30 years. Without Syria, it would fall apart and both Hezbollah and Hamas would be gravely weakened. That could easily happen if the Baathists lose control in Syria — and almost every other government in the region is deeply worried by the prospect of a democratic Syria. Iran fears the loss of its main Arab ally and condemns the Syrian protesters even as it praises the revolutionaries in other Arab countries. The remaining dictatorships in the Arab world are appalled the rot has spread to Syria:

If this bastion of tyranny can go down, what hope is there for the rest of them? Israel doesn’t even know what to hope for. It loathes the Baathist regime in Syria and would love to see Hamas and Hezbollah weakened, but it fears a democratic government in Syria would be an even more implacable enemy of Israel. The same goes for the United States, so the Syrian protesters are entirely on their own. If the Baathists try to solve their problem by massacre, as they have done in the past, nobody will raise a finger to stop them. But, the protesters could still win. Massacres don’t always have the desired effect. Gwynne Dyer’s latest book, Crawling from the Wreckage, was published in Canada by Random House.

OBITUARIES AND IN MEMORIAM Antoinette Beulah Wijeyesinghe 1922- 2011

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Antoinette Beulah Wijeyesinghe on April 23, 2011. She is survived by her loving son Cornel (Hema) and grandsons Angelo and Udara as well as numerous nephews and nieces. She was predeceased by her husband Earle and siblings Edith, Rene, Cora , Patsy and William. Antoinette spent her entire working life in the area of Medical Statistics. She was awarded scholarships by WHO to represent her country, Sri-Lanka, internationally on at least two occasions. She was deeply spiritual using her God given strength to fend for herself and her son following the premature death of her husband. It also provided sustenance and gave her the fortitude to accept and tolerate the iniquities she suffered during the last few months of her life. The Reverend Father Derrick Cameron will celebrate the Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, April 30, 2011 at 1:00 p.m. Cremation to follow. Special thanks to staff, 2B at the Kamloops Seniors Village, Dr. P. Sigalet, L. Cameron, B. Hanes, Father D. Cameron and the Franciscan Sisters. Donations to the Kamloops Pro-Life Society, Box 24051, 70-700 Tranquille Rd., Kamloops, B.C. V2B 8R3 in memory of Antionette would be appreciated. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoenings.com Arrangements entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service, telephone 250 374-1454

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.

The Angel On Your Shoulder

I’M GLAD I TOUCHED SHOULDERS WITH YOU

By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder.

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.

There’s a comforting thought at the close of the day When I’m weary and lonely and sad That sort of grips hold of this crusty old heart And bids it be merry and glad. It gets in my soul, and it drives out the blues, And finally thrills through and through. It’s just a sweet memory that chants the refrain, “I’m glad I touched shoulders with you.” Did you know you were brave, Did you know you were strong, Did you know there was one leaning hard, Did you know that I listened and waited and prayed And was cheered by your simplest word? Did you know that I longed for that smile on your face, For the sound of your voice ringing true, Did you know I grew stronger and better because I had merely touched shoulders with you? I am glad that I live; that I battle and strive For a place that I know I must fill; I’m thankful for sorrows I’ll meet with a grin What fortune may send good or ill; I may not have wealth, I may not be great but I know I shall always be true, For I have in my life that courage you gave, When once I touched shoulders with you.
