A life that changed — in a heartbeat By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

YLER SMITH HAS HAD HIS HEART IN HIS HANDS. Literally. He held the diseased organ, he looked at its deformities and he realized it had just days before been beating — badly — inside him. He was speechless. And, he was overwhelmed at how, in the space of a few months, he went from an 18-year-old who couldn’t keep up with grandmother on a walk to a 19-year-old hearttransplant recipient. He’s glad he’s alive to tell his story. And, what a story it is. It’s one that will break any parent’s heart, make people angry at how fallible the health-care system is and, in the end, cheer for the teenager and for the medical professionals who wouldn’t stop until they knew what was killing him. Tyler, who lives in Revelstoke, said much of his teenaged years was spent “in and out of clinics,” with plenty of trips to the local ER when he couldn’t breathe.

Heart-transplant recipient Tyler Smith will be in Kamloops on Tuesday, April 12 as part of Organ Donor Week to talk about his journey from sick teenager to living with a pacemaker (above) to — just weeks ago — receiving a heart transplant. At one point in his journey, he got to hold mis enlarged hart in his hands (below, with a normal-sized heart on the table), and the experience left him speechless. Fortunately, he says, his dad was there to ask all the questions Tyler would have, if the reality wasn’t so overwhelming.

Layton first leader here By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The federal election campaign is expected to heat up locally with the arrival of the first major party leader to the Tournament Capital. NDP Leader Jack Layton will be in Kamloops today (April 8) for a campaign rallystyle town-hall meeting at the Interior Savings Centre’s Parkside Lounge. The visit, which is open to the general public, will kick off at 4 p.m. It won’t be the first appearance in Kamloops for the NDP leader, who was one of only two nationalparty leaders to come through town during the last federal election in 2008. Green Party Leader Elizabeth May made a brief appearance during the last election on a train at 2 a.m. i. In fact, Layton was in Kamloops just a couple of months ago, and his visit today will be his fifth in about three years.

For local NDP candidate Michael Crawford, Layton’s visit not only signals how much of a priority the KamloopsThompson-Cariboo riding is to the party, but it’s a signal the seat is winnable. “We are the only party to likely bring the incumbent down here,” he said, noting the party’s second-place finishes in the previous two elections. Crawford received 36 per cent of the vote in 2008, finishing more than 5,000 votes behind Conservative MP Cathy McLeod. There is no word if any of the other party’s leaders will be making an appearance in Kamloops during the campaign. In the meantime, several all-candidate forums have been scheduled in the lead up to the vote on May 2. The first forum, hosted by the Kamloops chapter of the Council of Canadians, will take place on April 15 at 7

p.m. at Desert Gardens Community Centre. A second all-candidate forum, sponsored by the Kamloops

Teachers want realistic contract Forum updates city

on homelessness plan

By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

B.C.’s 41,000 public-school teachers — including those in Kamloops — could strike when the school year ends in June if the province doesn’t give them a raise. The head of the local teachers’ union said teachers in Kamloops are looking to change a number of provisions in their collective agreement to better reflect the realities of teaching in the Tournament Capital. “We’re looking at getting more issues dealt with at the local table, so that we can deal with issues that are specific to our location,” Jason Karpuk told KTW. He used the example of snow days — important to consider for teachers in the Lower Mainland, but not so much in Kamloops. Karpuk also cited mileage allowances for teachers on call.

Goal ambitious and will take time to accomplish By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

He said allowances in Kamloops and Abbotsford — roughly the same population — are the same. In Abbotsford, he said, substitute teachers never have to drive more than 20 minutes to get to their school.

In Kamloops, the commute could be upwards of 45 minutes, depending on where the teacher lives in relation to the school. Bargaining began last month and is expected to continue until June.

“We’ll continue to go to the table as long as we’re making progress,” Karpuk said. Provincially, B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert has said the union is calling on the government to lift its

public-sector wage freeze and hike teachers’ salaries. B.C. education minister George Abbot, speaking last month at the BCTF annual conference, said the government wouldn’t budge.

Ever wonder what teachers make? Teachers in B.C. are paid on a grid, depending on how many years of postsecondary education they have completed and how many years they’ve been teaching. According to the grid under the agreement now in place, teachers in Kamloops are paid anywhere between $47,795 (a first-year teacher with four years of university) to $81,488 (a teacher with a master’s degree and more than nine years of experience in the classroom).

2006-2008 pontiac g5

chevy cobalt cheVy aveo pontiac wave $

However, most teachers in B.C. went to university for five years, completing three years of arts or sciences followed by two years of education. Teachers with five years of postsecondary education start at a salary of $52,840 and receive yearly raises of about $3,000, to a maximum of $74,353. Under the agreement, a “year” of teaching equals 195 teaching days. If a teacher works eight hours for each of those 195 days, they will be paid

anywhere between $30.64 and $52.24 an hour, depending on education and years of experience. The category under which most teachers fall — five years of post-secondary education — begins at $33.87 per hour and maxes out at an extrapolated wage of $47.66. That said, a lot of teachers put in extra hours organizing and supervising extracurricular activities — none of which is reflected in their pay.

A positive start. That may be the best way to describe the thoughts of many on an ambitious plan to end homelessness in Kamloops. Dozens of people turned out for a Kamloops Homeless Action Plan (KHAP) forum at the Kamloops Alliance Church on Wednesday (April 6). The purpose was for KHAP to CHRIS update the public on the plan and get ROSE feedback as it moves forward. The Kamloops Homelessness Action Plan, with a goal to end homelessness in the city by 2015, seeks to bring together various social and government agencies to address homelessness issues, from the ongoing creation of new housing to employment and lifeskills for those at risk. Former school board trustee Chris Rose said he was impressed by the co-ordination of the many social agencies, noting in the past, they would have been working on their own. As for KHAP’s plan of ending homelessness in five years, Rose suggested the goal will take a long ARJUN time to reach and that some in that SINGH situation may not want the help. “I think we’re moving in the right direction. More and more people will be helped for sure,” he said. Arjun Singh, a former city councillor, was impressed with the co-ordination and collaboration of the different social agencies in town, suggesting the partnerships are crucial to building a foundation that will see the plan succeed. Singh, who is an apartment building landlord, said he’s seen a lot of situations where at risk people want to rent a place but, without proper support, they won’t succeed and it’s turned out badly. He noted a partnership with the AIDS Society of Kamloops has meant those same at-risk residents have been successful in keeping their place.

Who is Emergency Social Services? Emergency Social Services (ESS) provides short-term assistance to residents who are forced to leave their homes because of fire, floods, earthquakes or other emergencies. This assistance can include food, lodging, clothing, emotional support and family reunification. What do ESS volunteers do? Emergency Social Services is based on volunteerism, and is dependent on the willingness of individuals in the community to help plan for the well-being of their neighbours and fellow citizens in the event of a disaster. ESS volunteers assist their communities in many ways, including: - Linkage to first responders agencies - Informing local businesses of the program - Identifying potential Reception Centres and Group Lodging sites - Recruiting and training more volunteers - Completing contact lists and exercising their plan - Informing the public of help available following a disaster - Providing for the essential needs of people affected by a disaster - Educating fellow citizens about personal preparedness What are the rewards of ESS? Making a difference as part of a team that provides assistance and a shoulder to lean on when disaster forces people from their homes. Volunteers gain valuable experience, free training and contacts in the field of emergency management. Volunteers form the backbone of ESS and are recognized by local government as part of a network of emergency responders. To offer your services as an ESS volunteer, please contact the City of Kamloops Emergency Program Coordinator, Alisha Beday at 250-828-3465 or email abeday@kamloops.ca

Tucked away in Chad Moats’ home is a garbage bag full of shredded recall petitions. The organizer for the recall campaign against KamloopsNorth Thompson MLA Terry Lake said he’ll keep the shredded documents for a week and then send them off to be recycled. But the agency that oversees elections in the province and any recall efforts wants those petitions in its hands. Elections BC is now mulling its options to get Moats to give them up. However, Moats said if officials with Elections BC want the tattered sheets, it can have them. The recall against Lake officially failed on April 4, after organizers couldn’t get the necessary number of signatures needed — but that only sparked the new controversy. Instead of turning in all the signatures to Elections BC to be processed, Moats decided to shred the documents to protect the privacy of the individuals who signed them. Doing so was a major no-no, according to Elections BC. Don Main, com-

shredding the signatures was a dishonour to those who signed the recall, Moats said he doesn’t see it that way at all. Instead, he said if anything, shredding the signatures saved taxpayers money. As Elections BC considers its next move, Moats is hoping the flap won’t become a legal issues, but said it could be a possibility. The recall campaign against Lake managed to get 10,087 signatures, but the number is well short of the total needed for Lake to become the first MLA in the province’s history to be recalled. In Kamloops-North Thompson, registered canvassers had 60 days to obtain the signatures of at least 15,299 registered voters, 40 per cent of the 38,246 voters registered to vote in the last provincial election. The failure in Kamloops-North Thompson follows failed recall bids of Liberal MLAs Ida Chong in Oak Bay, Don McRae in Comox Valley and Marc Dalton in Maple Ridge-Mission. Another attempt to recall CaribooChilcotin Liberal MLA Donna Barnett was abandoned before it began.

JDRF ready for an amazing fundraiser Don’t be surprised if this weekend you see large groups of people running around the Tournament Capital looking very — well, occupied. No — it’s not Armageddon. It’s a local version of the popular reality game show The Amazing Race. More than 200 people are expected to take part in the Sun Life Amazing Race on Saturday, April 9, a fundraiser for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. “It’s great fun, everybody loves it,” said Colin Noble one of the event’s or,ganizers. “It’s the best way to spend Saturday morning.” This amazing race will begin at Riverside Park at 9 a.m., where contestants will be handed a package giving them directions to six or eight different places in town. They’ll make their way on city buses to complete the various tasks set out in their package. It’s expected contestants will make their way to all the

neighbourhoods in the city where a bus can travel. There is about $5,000 worth of prizes, from coupons to gift certificates, up for grabs. Noble, whose own son has the disease and has competed in the race in past, noted about 80 per cent of the people who ran the race in previous years have returned. It takes about an hour and half to three hours to finish the race. Children can also participate in the race. Last year, organizers raised roughly $10,000 for JDRF and are hoping to match or top that mark this year. Though the race is all about having fun, Noble pointed out it’s also for a serious cause.

It’s time to fill those yellow bags The sixth Rotary Food Drive is tomorrow (April 9). The last one, held in September, collected 48,000 pounds of food and, since the service club took over the twice-a-year event, it has seen 145,000 pounds of food collected for the Kamloops Food Bank. Last year, the food bank fed 6,931 clients, up from the year before. Of that number 782 were younger than five, 1,4904 were between the ages of six and 18 and 409 were 60 or older. Monthly visits by clients ranges between 4,300 and 5,300. The drive is fuelled by volunteers, and dozens will be at Interior Vault tomorrow to help unload Rotarians’ vehicles, sort the food and pack it up for future use. And, the reality is the mountain of food will be gone in just a few short months. Yellow plastic bags were distributed in Wednesday’s Kamloops This Week for donations, but, if people are unable to leave them out, forget or their house is missed, they can take donations to any grocery store in the city.

What about the children, Premier Clark?

T

HIS IS THE STORY OF TWO MEN, A WOMAN AND MANY, MANY CHILDREN. First, we have Ted Hughes, a retired judge, a respected law expert, a man the province turned to when it wanted to come up with solutions to its child-protection system. Next, we have Terry Lake, a member of the provincial legislature, a former city councillor and mayor and a respected veterinarian who genuinely cares about animals. And then there’s newly elected Premier Christy Clark, who has declared the family to be her main priority. Let’s take a further look. Hughes spent months looking into the failures of the child-protection system. In particular, he looked at all those cases that should still today make us all wonder about our society — the deaths of children whose safety and care were being overseen by that same government Lake now belongs to. You remember some of them, I’m sure. The one that continues to break my heart is Sherry Charlie, a 19-month old girl whose life, the inquest into her death heard, was one of constant battering and, eventually, death at the hands of her uncle, the same adult whose home the baby was placed into by the government for her own safety. Lake spent about the same length of time as the campaign to have him recalled for supporting implementa-

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL tion of the HST looking into the killing of dozens of sled dogs. Lest you all think I hate animals, the reality these dogs — brought into service to cater to Olympic Winter Games tourists who obviously had way too much disposable income — were not only viewed as surplus once the circus left town but were killed is also heartbreaking. Not the same level of pain the death of Charlie caused, but, still, a truly tragic reality. I’m not really sure what Lake did in his inquiry into the deaths of the sled dogs because the study was not only quick but seemed to happen pretty much under the media spotlight — but I certainly know what Hughes did. He spent months asking questions and learning, most all of this time spent in the media spotlight. He made 62 recommendations, including creation of a representative for children and youth. The government followed through on this and hired Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond for the job. She’s spent much of her time

fighting with the same government that hired her, accusing it of ignoring her reports and eventually taking the government to court to get documents she needed to do her job. Which brings us to today. Lake’s brief review of the death of the sled dogs has led his government to introduce legislation that has been called the toughtest animal-cruelty law in the country. Good on him for getting this done. We’re still waiting for the government to act on Hughes’ recommendations with anything that vaguely resembles sincerity, however. Maybe Lake was successful because it was simply easier to change the system to protect dogs — but, if that’s true, it’s a crying shame because, no matter how hard it is, those recommendations were made almost five years ago. Time to bring in the third main character in this column, the new premier. The same one who says she’s putting families first as she takes over running the province. If she’s serious about that — if it really is more than just a warm and fuzzy slogan to her — maybe she could dust off her copy of the Hughes report and do something about the flaws and faults he found in the child-protection system. The dogs are protected — it’s time to do something about our children. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

Has empathy become so foreign to people that heinous acts of violence can be shrugged off with little bother? The desensitization of youth has been a concern for decades. From comic books to rock music to video games, it seems almost every new media trend has been blamed for turning kids into unfeeling monsters. Most research indicates good kids don’t turn bad because of what they read, watch or play. However, just as disconcerting is what seems to be a diminishing sensitivity toward other people experiencing pain. In Sooke, RCMP report a young girl had become dangerously intoxicated at a public soccer game and could have died if not treated. The girl’s “friends” apparently looked on as if they were being treated to a live version of a viral YouTube video. Fortunately, two other girls alerted authorities. There’s the heartbreaking story of Kimberly Proctor. In that case, two months after the murder and with no arrests, the RCMP made a public plea for people with information about the crime to come forward. Thankfully, they did. When Reena Virk died under a bridge in 1997, the case touched a nerve across the world. It seemed shocking to think kids — more than a dozen by some accounts — could know firsthand of a violent crime and not report it to the authorities. It was a watershed moment that launched anti-bullying campaigns aimed at teaching kids about preventing violence on a personal level. It’s time for a new discussion about violence experienced on a public level and why it’s critical each of us understand our responsibility to the ideals of justice and serving the greater good.

Re: Hells Angel link to weekend event in Kamloops, say police “Why can’t the RCMP work with the biker fund raiser’s as a team. Here on Vancouver Island,we have full support from the police. On toy runs, they even give us police car escorts. We have motorcycle clubs from all over Canada show up at these functions.” — captdoc200 “Newsflash — bikers have been around here since the 50s. While their club names have changed, the bike of choice certainly hasn’t. Don’t worry, good citizens of Fruitloops, we aren’t about to be overrun . . . again.” — Conservative_1 “Are the police intelligent or what? They have a keen eye on things. Next, we’ll hear people in the Catholic church are clearly connected to the priests. “Watch for a increase in funding requests for the police department. I think they should share with the motorcycle clubs. Only fair, since the clubs do so much in the way of being boogiemen to the public for them.” — northfield35 “What happened to the RCMP saying that no gangs were represented in Kamloops ? Either there is or there isn’t. Can’t have it both ways, gentlemen.” — Grouchy1

Are servers lower than low? A tale Editor: I gave myself a few days to process the information on the changes to minimum wage in British Columbia and now feel I can calmly write this letter. I am a 42-year-old server who has voted only for the Liberal party, both federally and provincially. I am happy with the repeal of the training wage. I, like the rest of British Columbians working for minimum wage, was ecstatic at the increase from $8 per hour to $10.25. It wasn’t until late in the afternoon on the day of the announcement that I learned the career I have been in for 30 years is not getting the same minimum wage as the rest of the jobs. Servers are only entitled to $9 per hour. I was of the understanding minimum means the lowest. If this is the definition of minimum, then how can servers be paid lower than the lowest? In my years as a server, it has almost always been common practice for servers to give five per cent of our tips to the dishwasher, cooks and hostess. So the question here is does the government include cooks, hostesses and dishwashers in this group that is only entitled to $1.25 below the minimum wage? Are hotel employees and cab drivers who also receive tips below the minimum also included? If not, why not? Who is classed as servers? Is it just this profession largely made up of single parents and students?

TALK BACK

of two countries

I understand the reason behind this decision is servers receive tips so do not need the extra $1.25 offered to the rest of the province. I can honestly state tips have gotten lower, not higher, in the past decade, especially at smaller cafes and restaurants. Servers go through a lot that people not in the industry don’t realize. The number of steps taken in an eight-hour shift in a small cafe is approximately 3,500. I know this because I wore a pedometer at a former job. WCB does not recognize some injuries and medical conditions as coming from long-term

serving — but that does not make them disappear. When the confusion clears and questions are answered, then it may make sense but for right now as a 30 year server and lifelong Liberal supporter I am upset and insulted. I feel this is a lack of respect for the serving profession when the person sitting in the gas station taking money is entitled to minimum wage and the person waiting on others (literally) is entitled to less than minimum.

Q&A

Editor: What an interesting contrast — in the Canadian news I read that two men who were convicted of luring, sexually assaulting, then murdering and dismembering a young woman ( nd also were unsuccessful in their attempt to lure a second victim) were sentenced to life imprisonment, but will be eligible for parole in 10 years. Then I read that a Merritt man who just a few short years ago murdered his three children wants to be granted permission for supervised visits in the community so he can enjoy a Starbucks coffee and maybe even a swim. That decision oddly enough is pending. In the same news day, there is a story on CNN where a New Jersey man convicted of murder in a robbery case was sentenced to 245 years in prison. With good behaviour, he will be eligible for parole when he is 131 years old. Enough said.

Parkade report headed to council By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s been relatively quiet around Kamloops on the topic of a new parkade, but that’s about to change next week. A final report on the parkade, which includes a detailed cost of the project, is expected to be in front of city council on April 12. Council will then vote to move to the public consultation component of the project. The report is actually expected to be released today (April 8) as part of council’s agenda. If approved, the city is proposing having information booths set up at Aberdeen Mall and Northills Mall on April 16 and April 17 respectively. A public forum, with council present, would then take place at the Interior Savings Centre on the evening of April 18. The city would also post the report on its website and include a questionnaire for residents to complete. The results of the public

cost $85,000. Coun. Denis Walsh said he’s pleased the city is going to the public on the issue, but still has a few concerns about the process. He would like more time between the setup at the malls and the public forum. “I think people probably need a little time to digest it and discuss it amongst themselves,” he said.

GRAND OPENING Cathy McLeod

Dear friends, Come celebrate the Grand Opening of our Campaign Headquarters at: 803 SEYMOUR STREET KAMLOOPS, FRIDAY APRIL 1, 12 NOON – 2PM Join us for BBQ and Refreshments.

Take this opportunity to meet with Cathy one on one.

Martin lends support to literacy campaign A prominent Kamloops lawyer has been named the national spokesman of a campaign to help promote literacy awareness in Canada. Lesra Martin will be the face of Look Under Learn — a program being run by ABC Life Literacy Canada. Look Under Learn is designed to help Canadians with literacy challenges get in touch with government and business groups to help them improve their reading and writing skills. “The hope is we will be able to improve the literacy of 42 per cent of Canadians who were surveyed and found to have low

literacy skills,” Martin said. “For a fellow like me, who couldn’t read or write at the age of 15, being involved in an organization like this is fantastic.” Martin grew up in a New York City ghetto. He was taken in by a group of wealthy Torontonians as a teenager and given access to high-quality education and private tutoring. He eventually earned his law degree from Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia. He is most recognized for his role in the release of former middleweight boxer Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, who had been wrongly imprisoned for

more than two decades. Following his involvement in Carter’s case, Martin was made the subject of a documentary film. He eventually landed in Kamloops, where he worked as a Crown prosecutor. He now has a civil law practice in Sahali. When the Hollywood blockbuster The Hurricane, starring Denzel Washington in the lead role, was released in 1999, Martin was invited to be a guest on Oprah and Larry King Live. For more information about the Look Under Learn literacy program, visit lookunderlearn. ca.

AT HOME WITH YOUR HAMSTER

• Hamsters are one of Canada’s most popular pets. The Golden Hamster (smooth hair),the Fancy (multi-coloured), and Teddy Bear (fluffy longer fur) are the most common. • What you need to know about Hamsters is that they are NOT social animals like gerbils, mice, and guinea pigs. Past their infancy, they do not like to live in groups/pairs, and happily live alone, with just their peoplebuddies for company. They should only be kept as single pets. • The optimum room temperature they should be kept in is between 68 and 74 F. or 20-23.8 C. Respiratory problems can result from rapid temperature changes. Place cage away from direct sunlight, drafts, and heat or air conditioning vents. • These little furballs are masters of escape too, so it’s very important to have an escape-proof cage for them to live in. It can be a two-story cage with a removable plastic bottom, or one of the fantastic enclosed plastic units with tunnels and add-able attachments, but do not underestimate your potential escapee! Make sure to give them enough room to run, sleep and tunnel, and materials to ‘nest’ in. • Spend social time with your hamster every day. Holding, talking, and discovering their favourite treats are an important part of life with your pet. Treat foods such as those with nuts, fruits, corn, can be offered but only as a treat! Carrot, apple, parsley, some lettuces, are also safe choices. Only about 5% of their daily diet should be treat foods (a half-teaspoon per day). The main diet for your hamster should be a staple diet. Extruded foods will assist with not only digestive and nutritional health, but is beneficial to their natural chewing needs. Grass hay stimulates natural foraging behaviours and helps prevent obesity. They will love to nest with it and they love to munch on it too! Oat hay is another favourite.

Doctor after doctor examined him; none could come up with anything more than the asthma with which he was diagnosed five years ago. “I took the medicine they told me to take but it never got better. I kept having the quote-unquote asthma attacks.” At a family wedding last July — the same one his grandmother “cruised away from me, leaving me at the back of the pack” — he showed his aunt Michelle Reith, a Kamloops nurse, his swollen ankles. She noticed his legs also had little hair, both indicators of heart disease. Three more doc-

tors later, the best he got was one promising to send him to a cardiologist “to ease my mind” but not to expect the appointment for months. Within days, there was another trip to the ER with chest pains and difficulty breathing —

“It always happens to someone else, right?” Wrong, a critical illness can strike anyone at any time. 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. A critical illness policy would provide you and your family with a lump-sum payment ($10,000 - $2,000,000) to look after your financial needs. Meanwhile, you can focus on what’s really important - your recovery. Plus, if you don’t use your coverage, you could get your money back.

and, Tyler said, “I was faking a heart attack to get someone to see me.” This ER visit resulted in more tests and an ultrasound “to ease my mind” — and, after it all, two doctors are standing over him, talking about irregularities in his heart.

One went so far as to say that, had he not met Tyler but had simply looked at the ultrasound, “he would have thought I was 70 or 80 years old. “That was on a Friday. On the Saturday, I was told to go to Kelowna right away, that there was a cardiologist at the hospital waiting to see me.” Tyler was admitted, tested some more and diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, a thickening of his heart walls. The Kelowna doctors flew him out that night to St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver for a heart biopsy. And here’s where some luck steps into the teenager’s story.

A new sun will rise on Kamloops! The Canadian breakfast leader unveils its first restaurant in British Columbia

Cora Franchise Group, Inc., Canada’s breakfast leader is proud to announce the opening of the first Cora restaurant in British Columbia. The Grand Opening will take place on Monday April 11 at 9:00 a.m. at the restaurant located at 1285 Trans Canada Highway, Kamloops by the new Rexall Pharmacy. Also a special ceremony will be held on Wednesday April 20 at 9:00 a.m. The Cora team along with owner-franchisees Jennifer and Shaun Clark, Ms. Cora Tsouflidou, Founder and Mr. David Polny, Executive Vice President, will proudly welcome Kamloops dignitaries and customers for a true Cora-like celebration that will feature the symbolic cracking of eggs. During this event, a cheque will be presented to the Cancer Society Relay for Life. Donations will be raised at a special Family and Friends event. The Kamloops opening is part of a nationwide expansion of the Cora network, making it the 1st British Columbia location. The chain’s growth and western expansion will continue, as more openings are scheduled for the months to come. Madame Cora originated the concept in 1987, as a single mother of three in need of a career; she bought a small diner on Côte-Vertu Boulevard in Montreal’s St-Laurent area. Focusing on breakfasts, the restaurant quickly became the talk of the town, often having line-ups to get in. The Cora restaurant chain is famous for its all-day breakfast fare that boasts mounds of fresh fruit artfully prepared. Over the years, inspired by family traditions, health trends, customer requests and suggestions from her children, Cora has conjured up more than 100 menu ideas. The restaurant will be open Monday to Saturday from 6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and on Sunday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Before he could go for the biopsy, a porter came and told him he was to have an echocardiogram, a non-invasive test. To this day, Tyler said, no one knows who ordered the test, but it showed a blood clot inside his heart — a clot that likely would have been pierced in a biopsy, causing a stroke or seeing it move to another part of his body. Tyler was scheduled to be sent home with blood thinners to remove the clot — but, before he could be discharged, another doctor came in and told

him he had a choice. “He said to me, ‘Do you want the real truth or do you want me to make it easy for you’?” Tyler opted for gritty honesty — and learned he needed a heart transplant. At the time, he was 18, although the surgeon told him he had no idea what it meant to be that age. “He said I’d been sick for so many years, I had no idea what it felt like to be 18.” Tyler was sent home with a pacemaker and a pager and told to take his meds and wait. They’d call

Marie and Barry Smith visit with their son Tyler after the ventilator and tubes were taken out — and the new heart was beating just fine.

him when they had a donor. There were more complications but none that couldn’t be handled. As March approached, however, he said he started to get nervous and worry the specialists had forgotten him. Although most days were bad, where he did little more than sleep, some were good. Feb. 25 was one of them. He felt good enough to get up, visit some friends and go out for a burger and a beer with one of them. It was the first complete meal he had eaten in months — and, ironically, the last one he would have for some days. “We were sitting around and my friend was asking me a lot of questions, how I felt, what it was like to be waiting, when the phone rang and it was a 604 number. I knew what it was right away. I answered and she said ‘Tyler, is that you?’ I said yes and she said ‘ We have a heart here for you’.” Told to not hang up the phone and to listen to the instructions carefully, Tyler went home — his friend picked up the tab — to a pre-packed suitcase and anxious parents and girlfriend. They couldn’t get a flight to Vancouver out of Revelstoke, so ended up driving to Kamloops to get

a plane. All the while, Tyler worried because he had been told a donor heart has a short shelf life. After some delays at St. Paul’s, some conversation with the surgical team and an admonition to the anesthesiologist — “Let’s do it up, let’s get it done” — he was out, the new heart was in and he was waking up with tubes, a ventilator, Vaseline in his eyes to stop them from drying out and that post-surgery haze where all you want is to go home. The ventilator was removed later that day and he stood, taking three supported steps. Within a couple of days, he was in a lessintensive ward and walking laps around it. By the fourth day, he was going to the bathroom and ready to go home. On the fifth day, he was discharged and moved into a government-owned apartment across from the hospital so he can continue with outpatient care. He’s had one small scare — a bit of organ rejection that was gone by the following week — but said he’s feeling like he’s never felt before. Tyler has joined the Gift of Life cardiac team entered in the annual Sun Run marathon in Vancouver on April 17 — his first

marathon attempt ever. He’s asked about the donor but confidentiality laws keep most of the infor-

mation private. His doctor was able to tell him, though, that the heart is “an ideal match, no, it was a

Class hopes to see Layton @BlueWave94 attracted the attention of the NDP’s national HQ — but is it enough to woo Jack to WSS? By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A local high school class has garnered national attention with its unique project involving social networking and the federal election, but now teacher Jeremy Reid is setting his sites even higher. Reid’s Grade 11 social studies class at Westsyde secondary school is hoping to see federal NDP leader Jack Layton make a stop at the home of the Whundas during his visit to the Tournament Capital today (April 8). The class has set up a Twitter account — @BlueWave94 — to ask questions of local candidates and party leaders ahead of next month’s federal election.

JACK LAYTON

JEREMY REID

In addition to coverage in local media outlets, the class project was featured over the weekend in a Globe and Mail story about voters using Twitter to reach out to candidates. Reid said he got a call from the NDP’s national campaign headquarters this week offering the class “seating in a special section” at Layton’s town-hall meeting in Kamloops today. “I said, ‘Wow, that’s cool,’” Reid said. “‘But is there any way Layton

could drop by Westsyde secondary for 10 minutes or something?’ “She said she didn’t know and she’d email me.” As of KTW press time, Reid was still campaigning to have the party leader visit Westsyde. “The kids are really excited about it,” he said. “This is certainly a way to get them talking about government.” Reid said students are showing up to class interested in the federal election, and he credits the Twitter project. “I was just looking for a way to engage the students with the candidates,” he said. “And whenever there’s a minority government it’s nice for social studies teachers, because there are more elections.”

Man, 37, admits to sex with 13-year-old girl By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops man has pleaded guilty to sexual interference charges after surprise evidence surfaced at his Internet luring trial last month. Owen James Armstrong entered a guilty plea to one count of sexual interference — having sexual contact with a person under 16 years old — in Kamloops provincial court on Wednesday, April 6. The 37-year-old was charged last summer after the mother of a 13-year-old Kamloops girl went to police with information about a

relationship between the man and her daughter. Armstrong is alleged to have replied to a Craigslist ad posted by the girl, in which she stated she was looking for a sexual relationship with an older man. The Crown said the two began talking online and then met in person on a number of occasions over the course of about a month beginning last June. The girl testified at trial on March 11. She said the Craigslist ad listed her age as 18, but said she later told Armstrong she was 14, despite the fact she was actually a year younger. The girl, whose

identity is protected by a court-ordered publication ban, testified she had sex with Armstrong five times, and engaged in oral sex with him on at least two other occasions. During the girl’s cross-examination by defence lawyer Richard Kaiser, information surfaced regarding a number of additional Facebook messages and emails between her and Armstrong which hadn’t been uncovered during the police investigation. Court was stood down while the messages and emails were printed off, at Kaiser’s request. The trial was then

adjourned to allow both Crown and defence to review the new evidence. Details of the additional emails and Facebook messages have not yet been made public. The girl, who is now a 14-year-old Grade 8 student, said she received replies from about 40 men after posting her ads on Craigslist. She said she met with 20 of them in person. Armstrong, who is not in custody, was ordered to undergo examination for a presentence report. He’s slated to return to court on April 28.

Schoenborn eligible for supervised trips By Tim Petruk

LOCAL NEWS

STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Merritt man who killed his three children in 2008 will be allowed supervised trips outside the Lower Mainland psychiatric facility at which he’s receiving treatment. The B.C. Review Board ruled on Wednesday (April 6) that Allan Dwayne Schoenborn should be allowed to apply for super-

vised escorts in the community. The ruling came three years to the day after Schoenborn stabbed to death his 10-year-old daughter, Kaitlynne, before smothering his sons Max, 8, and Cordon, 5. He was arrested in the

psychotic episode will be allowed to apply for unsupervised overnight trips from the hospital he’s been in since October. John Lorne Bandura was granted unescorted leaves of up to four weeks from Forensic Psychiatric Hospital in Coquitlam, where he’s been since shortly after his arrest. The 31-year-old was found not criminally responsible by way of

hills outside Merritt on April 16, 2008, after a 10-day manhunt. Schoenborn was found not criminally responsible for the murders by way of a mental disorder following a trial in Kamloops last February.

ICBC says thanks for being safe It’s a big pat on the back for volunteers who help keep roads safe in the Kamloops area. In recognition of National Volunteer Week, ICBC is thanking Kamloops, Logan Lake, Merritt and Chase volunteers for their continued support in making communities safer. In these communities, approximately 120 volunteers work out of four community policing offices and police detachments to help deliver road safety programs including Speed Watch, Lock Out Auto Crime and the Stolen Auto Recovery program. “The extraordinary dedication to road safety shown by volunteers and community policing offices is remarkable and truly appreciated,” said Jon Schubert, ICBC’s president and CEO. Both local MLAs

are also grateful for the volunteers work. “The dedication and hard work of local volunteers has helped in raising awareness about auto crime and how to prevent it,” said Kevin Krueger, Kamloops-South Thompson MLA. “They are helping to make our communities safer and I want to thank them for that.” “The work done by volunteers in Kamloops and the North Thompson to help with ICBC’s road safety programs is of great value for our area,” said Terry Lake, Kamloops-North Thompson MLA. “These volunteers deserve our thanks for all they do to give back to their communities.” In 2010, Speed Watch volunteers in Kamloops, Merritt and the surrounding area contributed over 750 hours to help reduce

speed-related crashes in their communities. With the support of volunteers, speedrelated crashes have steadily decreased in B.C. over the last five years. Volunteers use radar and speed-reader boards supplied by ICBC to show drivers how fast they’re actually traveling. Over 70 per cent of drivers traveling

10km/h over the speed limit slow down when they see a speed-reader board. In 2010, Lock Out Auto Crime volunteers scanned approximately 2,800 licence plates to help identify stolen vehicles in Kamloops, Merritt and the area as part of the Stolen Auto Recovery program. Each year, volunteers help to recover hundreds of stolen

vehicles in B.C. “These volunteers work tirelessly,” said Ingrid Brakop, local ICBC road safety coordinator. “Many give up their Friday evenings to go out on a cold, rainy night to try to locate stolen vehicles. With their support, we’ve seen an astounding 65 per cent decrease in auto crime in B.C. since 2003.”

TRU hosts tourism conference Innovations Chair in Tourism and Sustainable Rural Development at Vancouver Island University has worked with communities and regions to explore solutions to diversifying rural economies through tourism. “At a time when many rural areas are becoming depopulated, it is important for leaders to understand the broader role that tourism plays in regional economic development,” Vaugeois said. “This conference will allow delegates to learn more about how to not just put themselves on the map, but set themselves up for success.” Topics being discussed during the three day conference include: linking tourism to local and regional amenities, successful business and marketing

The second annual Rural Tourism Conference will be held at Thompson Rivers University from April 19 to April 21. The annual event is an opportunity for tourism operators, community representatives, and others invested in supporting rural tourism to discuss topics important to developing and managing tourism in a manner that helps to sustain rural livelihoods and communities. “The conference is a way to raise awareness and bring attention to the value of tourism in rural areas, and that it is a legitimate option for maintaining a rural way of life and contributing to local economies,” said Rob Hood, chair of TRU’s School of Tourism.

strategies, moving the trails agenda forward, building tourist experiences with collaboration, and programs to support tourism initiatives. “Tourism is about visiting places and people. It provides the opportunity to meet and host interesting visitors who in turn will find locals interesting, if managed in a way that satisfies mutual needs. “This can add to the social and economic lives of rural citizens, and build appreciation for the place they live. Conference delegates learn that tourism does many things for their community in addition to supporting their economy,” Hood said. The event is being sponsored by TRU, the University of Northern BC and Vancouver Island University.

Hydro rate hikes to be probed

Ladies Auxiliary Fraternal Order of Eagles

Bake Sale & Bazaar

Government to review the plan — and may kill it The expected large rate hikes by BC Hydro may not be in the works as first planned. The provincial government has appointed a panel of senior officials to review BC Hydro and develop options to reduce the impact of hydro rate increases. “Our government’s priorities are to create jobs, build our economy, and support families,” said Energy and Mines Minister Rich Coleman. “Our goal is to find the right balance between investing in our hydro system, while keeping rates as low as possible for B.C. families — and this review will help us do just that.” The panel will conduct an examination of

BC Hydro’s financial performance, including operating and capital requirements, reliability of forecasting systems, administrative expenses, procurement processes, costcontainment strategies and opportunities for savings. The panel will also consider rate structures, corporate structures and business planning. The panel members are also free to examine any other matters that may arise over the course of the review. The objective of the review is to provide recommendations and options to ensure costs are minimized and benefits to B.C. families and BC Hydro customers are maximized. The panel will

report back to the premier and Coleman by the end of June. Ultimately, the recommendations will inform an amended BC Hydro rate application to the BC Utilities Commission (BCUC). Any amendments to the rate application will be assessed and approved by the BCUC through its open public-hearing process. The three panel members are deputy minister to the premier, John Dyble, deputy minister of finance, Peter Milburn and associate deputy minister of the environmental assessment office, Cheryl Wenezenki-Yolland. Following completion of the review, a final report containing recommendations will

resume after the government’s review. The report is also expected to help inform discussion of BC Hydro’s Integrated Resource Plan, where the first round of extensive public consultations on B.C.’s long-term energy needs has just been completed.

Spring Home and Garden

Non-traditional flooring gaining ground More and more homeowners are thinking bamboo and cork when it comes to floors Bamboo floors (left) are sturdy, smooth and shiny. They create a decor that is both modern and very special. Cork tiles (below) can add style to any room.

Bamboo and cork have become the stars of the flooring market. These eco-friendly materials are prized by home owners who are concerned about the environment and who appreciate the unique look of natural flooring. Bamboo is as tough as nails and has a smooth, satiny finish. Bamboo floors are ecological in that they are made from plants that grow and regenerate eight times faster than hardwood. Listed as an invasive species in most areas, the use of bamboo in home renovations does not have the slightest destructive impact on the environment or on agricultural crops. The bamboo used in flooring comes from mature plants that are about five years old, the age by which they have become hard and resistant to damage. Bamboo wood is surprisingly stable — 2.5 times more so than a traditional floor. It does not expand and contract with variations in humidity levels, as does a wood such as maple. That makes bamboo flooring ideal for our changeable northern climate. Moreover, bamboo is 33 percent more resistant to developing bumps and cracks compared with white oak.

Cork: comfy and hypoallergenic Cork flooring is as resistant as bamboo and is naturally resistant to shocks, stains, and the sun. Composed of millions of cells filled with air, cork is both insulating and comfortable to walk on. It is also appreciated for its ability to absorb noise and vibration and for its hypoallergenic qualities. It is, however, very sensitive to humidity. Flooring stores offer cork tiles in many different colours and finishes and can contribute to a warm, cozy home decor.

Cleaning out — and reorganizing — the closet You use your closet every day. Re-designing it can be an easy way to change your bedroom Spring fever often drives us to put away, organize and classify. Leap into action this year with a ready-toassemble closet storage unit that suits your needs. This type of modular storage kit is generally made up of support columns and racks to support drawers and sliding shelves. To these basic elements can be added different accessories, such as closet rods and shoe racks. If you know the exact measurements of the available space, some retailers even have software to produce a computerized design of your choice. At home, a jigsaw is useful for cutting prefabricated strips that are sometimes too long. Depending on the model, don’t forget to leave sufficient space for the opening and closing of folding or swinging doors. If you have a closed room to devote to this project, you can create a walk-in closet in which you will have plenty of room to move about and choose your clothes. You will need at least four square metres or six square metres if you intend to use the walk-in as a dressing room as well. You can also create a new space for a walk-in closet. You will need to buy side panels to erect as walls. To these, you must add angle supports to hold shelves as well as columns that will hold the angle supports and a sliding rail system. Once this stage is completed you can start assembling a modular closet unit. You’ll find an electric screwdriver very useful for this task.

When you arrive home with a newly purchased closet kit, make sure you have all the pieces.

HOME & GARDEN

Go wild — but not too wild Animal motifs should be used sparingly . . . Animal motifs are a classic theme in fashion and decorating magazines, and they are everywhere this season. Do you feel ready to welcome some wildlife into your home? Because of their natural colours and their silky texture, animal skins can create a warm atmosphere in a home. Just as if they were real animals, these skins must be carefully incorporated into a decor adapted specifically for them. Creating a cream coloured

background is a great way to highlight beautiful skins. Whites tinged with the warm yellow tones of the savanna are a good base for walls and drapes. Avoid the modern, urban range of bluish whites that are totally unsuitable for a wildlife theme. Position your animal print accents with the goal of not overcrowding the room. In a bedroom, try covering the sides of the bed with suede or add a sheepskin rug or a collection of picture frames covered in

Mongolian goat hair. The effect will be indisputably soft, warm, and comfortable. In your living room you can rely on a zebra skin rug and fur cushions to create the desired effect. You could even hang a panel covered with a colourfully dyed fur on the wall. The most important thing to remember is that every wildlife element has to be in its proper place so that it doesn’t create an outrageous effect.

It’s spring — time to spruce up your shutters Add life to your exterior easily Owners of beautiful old homes know that window shutters suffer from the ravages of winter storms. Restoring shutters to their original state after the winter will prolong their lifespan and enhance the value of the home they adorn. There are unmistakable signs that it’s time to breathe new life into yours: the coating is split, the varnish is worn and cracked, insects and fungus are encrusted in the wood, and the hinges are rusted. In northern countries such as ours, you may need to tackle this job every three years. The first step in restoring shutters is to remove them from the windows. Usually they are opened and closed with hinges on pintles, which are either sealed or mounted on the structure with expansion anchors. In this case you can just lift the

shutters off. If the shutters are attached with strap hinges you’ll have to unscrew them. Hinge supports must be cleaned of all traces of oxidation with the help of a stripper, and all the other metal parts must be brushed with a metal brush. Once the hinges are clean the metal should be wiped dry and treated with an anti-rust product. If varnish on the wood shutters has softened, this can be removed with a scraper. To spruce them up, choose a water-based paint that is durable and eco-friendly. Two coats should be applied with a brush working in the same direction as the grain of the wood, and the wood should be sanded between coats.

Why not use slate for your roof? Used for centuries in the old country as a roof covering, slate is a type of schistose stone that is easily adaptable to all shapes of house frames. Ideal for slopes varying between 11 and 90 degrees, slate shingles can resolve the most intricate roofing problems, including roofs with three different slopes or pitches. This natural stone has many advantages when it comes to roofing. Slate’s durability is exceptional, and good-quality slate shingles can have a lifespan of between 75 and 150 years. It is extremely weather-resistant, making it ideal for roof construction. Non-porous, waterproof, and unaffected by the cold, slate is resistant to water infiltrations and to deterioration caused by such things as ice and natural wear and tear.

It is suitable for very windy locations and is resistant to salty air. The overlapping of shingles during installation ensures a water-tight roof. What’s more, slate shingles will not burn or rot. Today, slate shingles are recognized for their charm and elegance. The finished look of a slate roof is visually pleasing, without any joints or expansion ridges. Available in different styles, colours, and thicknesses, this stone is adaptable to all types of roof and keeps its original colour as the years pass. Best of all, in the majority of cases slate does not require any maintenance work. When breakage does occur, the replacement of a damaged tile is an easy job.

Designing and building your dream deck A well-designed deck should combine comfort, intimacy, and functionality while looking as inviting as possible. If it’s well organized, it will be an indispensable place for relaxing and entertaining friends. If you’re feeling creative and are good with your hands, you can create your own deck. Be organized: establish a budget and make a list of the different steps involved in the project, including the purchase of building materials and plants and flowers. You might consider hiring a landscape architect or a landscape gardener to do the design or planting work for you. These specialists will know how to design and bring to life your dream deck. Think about how you want to use the space. For relaxation, choose a banquette with big cushions, attractive chairs, a hammock,

or a hanging seat. A small table will add functionality to this space. If you’re more interested in creating a dining area, choose a versatile table and opt for long benches rather than chairs. You’ll maximize the available space and be able to entertain more people. For a deck with a country look, choose traditional materials, such as wrought iron, wood, or bamboo, combined with accessories in soft, natural colours. For a more contemporary decor, choose furnishings in teak or composite and be daring with colours, opting for dark tones such as black or brown accompanied by brightly coloured accessories. For the finishing touch, place hanging plants, potted plants, or even climbing plants in strategic positions. You could even grow fresh herbs as well as flowers in colours that harmonize with your decor.

The design of any deck should combine comfort, intimacy, and functionality.

HY IS INDIA’S FUTURE BRIGHTER THAN CHINA’S, ESPECIALLY IN A WARMING WORLD? Because India has more good agricultural land per person. That will get more important as the temperature goes up. I first encountered the concept of Real Population Density (note the “Real”) when I was interviewing people in the Netherlands last year about how the country would fare as the temperature rose. My initial focus was on sea-level rise because 20 per cent of the country is already below sea level. But, the Dutch are confident they have the sea-level problem under control, at least for the rest of this century. They are already committed to spending large amounts of money to prevent flooding, not by raising the dikes even further, but by beach replenishment. When dikes fail, it is generally because they are battered by huge waves — but, if you extend the beaches far out to sea (by dredging up sand from even farther out), then the waves do not reach the dikes. The Dutch sea-level experts were also confident the Netherlands would not face any problems with food when the temperature rises. The country is, after all, the second- or thirdbiggest agricultural exporter in the world. But it still feels like a

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH very crowded country, so I looked up a few agricultural experts and they explained the concept of Real Population Density to me. “It would take a country three or four times the size of the Netherlands to support our present diet,” said Huib Silvis of the Agricultural Economics Research Institute at Wageningen University. “We import huge amounts of soybean and other animal feed, which we could not produce ourselves. If we had to be self-sufficient, we would not be eating meat.” The Real Population Density of the Netherlands — how many people there are per square kilometre of farmland — is 2,205. That’s higher than Bangladesh (1,946 people per square kilometre), and it means the Netherlands, to be self-sufficient in food, would have to feed 22 people from each hectare of land. So, how can the country be the second- or third-biggest agricultural exporter in the world? Because that’s the cash value of its exports, which are mostly high value-added products. You get a lot more

for a tonne of cut flowers than you do for a tonne of potatoes — but you can’t eat cut flowers and the Dutch could barely feed themselves from their own resources even now. Global warming makes matters much worse, because it hits food production hard. The rule of thumb is the world loses about 10 per cent of its food production for every rise of one degree Celsius in average global temperature. So, the amount of food for sale on the international market drops drastically, because some of the big food-exporting countries aren’t producing enough food to export it any more. As the food gets scarce, the price goes up. Countries that can’t feed themselves either pay huge amounts to buy the limited amount of food that is still available on the international market (if they have the money), or else they go hungry. Which brings us back to India and China. Almost half the total land area of India is good arable land, whereas only 15 per cent of China is. So, although China looks bigger on the map, India has a significantly lower Real Population Density: 753 people per square kilometre of farmland compared to 943 for China. Add in the fact China is losing about one per cent of its arable land per year to buildings, roads and parking lots, and the numbers for China start to look seriously bad.

They look even worse for the East Asian countries that are already fully industrialized: Around 2,900 people per square kilometre for Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. That’s off the scale: Nowhere else is that bad apart from some tiny island states like Kiribati, the Maldives and Singapore. At the other end of the spectrum, look at the big industrialized states in Europe. Italy and Germany are in the 700s, but Spain, France, Sweden and Poland are all in the 300s. So are Brazil, South Africa and Turkey, the most promising of the rapidly developing countries. The lucky ones still have room to grow; the others don’t. And the uncontested winners in this new lottery? The United States has only 179 people per square kilometre of good agricultural land. Argentina has 144 and Russia has 117. Canada is 78, and Australia is 43. Australia, in other words, has more than half a hectare of good land per person. This is deeply unfair, given which countries are actually responsible for the global warming. To them that hath, shall it be given. But then, you already knew that the universe isn’t fair.

And, while Donovan Cavers admitted he would be hard-pressed to devote as much time to this campaign as he did with his 2008 bid, the catering-company owner is getting out and about. On March 31, befitting the environmentally conscience platform of candidate and party, Cavers decided to ride every route on Kamloops’ transit system.

It’s free-tree time again It’s that time of year, for the city to hand out cash for trees. Starting Monday, April 11, the city will be giving out free-tree coupons valued at $20. Residents who would like a tree coupon can pick one up at city hall on Victoria Street, or the Public Works Centre at 955 Concordia Way, during regular business hours, Monday to Friday. There are 2,000 coupons available on a first come, first served basis, at a limit of one coupon per household. Also, for this year, the coupon can be used toward the purchase of fruit trees. This program is part of the Operation Re-Leaf Program, which aims to plant 20,000 trees in four years. The program has resulted 14,946 trees planted to date and is hoping to achieve the goal by

this fall. The city has other tree planting incentives for residents.

WIDE PLANK HARDWOOD LTD.

To restore visual screening where there has been a significant loss of trees due to pine beetle infestation and increasing wildfire protection to residential homes, the city will provide aspen trees to qualified homeowners if they agree to irrigate and care for these trees. The boulevard tree planting program allows neighbourhoods to apply for trees to be planted on their street if homeowners agree to be responsible for irrigating them. Kamloops Community Forest is a Communities in Bloom legacy project where people can dedicate a memorial or celebratory tree in the area set aside between Riverside Park and Pioneer Park or in other park areas.

Mortgage Matters Renters!! Are you ready to buy? People rent for very good reasons, and you may have many of them...but have you ever wondered if you are ready to buy? Here are a few considerations to review when deciding if you are ready to buy. 1) The Rental Market – What are the rents projected to be in the near future, how much

are you paying compared to similar rental units, what could your rental dollar do if it was put toward a mortgage payment? 2) Employment – How safe is your employment, are you committed to the work force or considering school, is your income showing signs of stability/ increase/ or decrease, are you happy with your job? 3) Happiness – Is your current home meeting all your needs today, will your needs change in the near future, can your home suit your future needs? 4) Rate Trends – Low interest rates can mean your payment dollar can go further. Taking advantage of periods with low interest rates can put you in a higher value home for the same monthly payment as a less expensive house with a higher interest rate. What are the interest rates expected to do?

Credit Blowing Up On You?

5) Inventory – Perhaps most importantly...what is available for sale in your price range, in the neighbourhood you prefer and in the style of home that you desire? A premature step into something that is only second best for you and your family begs a “for sale signâ€? in your future. Get it right the ďŹ rst time. Shop the market and be prepared to take a break if what you see doesn’t make you happy.

Guaranteed Everyone Approved!

6) Down Payment – Down payment is not always an obstacle if you are ready to buy. Some lenders will provide the downpayment as well as the money for the house. However, in most cases, lenders like to see a 5% downpayment and 1.5% closing costs. This can come from a gift from family, savings, RRSP withdrawal etc.

TAKES TIME

7) Nobody Moves Nobody Gets Hurt – Staying exactly where you are involves the least amount of work, least amount of change and least amount of money out of your pocket...in the short term. Preparing yourself for home ownership is something that can start today and gets you set up for the long term. A trip to your mortgage broker is part of that plan.

Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett draws a crowd in November 2010 with his blunt criticisms of former premier Gordon Campbell. Black Press

Open House

Bennett back in caucus By Tom Fletcher BLACK PRESS tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Kootenay East MLA Bill Bennett has been welcomed back into the B.C. Liberal caucus, as Premier Christy Clark prepares for a provincial election that could come this year. Clark and ParksvilleQualicum MLA Ron Cantelon, the B.C. Liberal caucus chairman, made the announcement after a caucus meeting in Vancouver. Cantelon said Bennett has always been a valued contributor to the party and his return is welcome. Speaking to CKNW radio Wednesday, Bennett said he was “very graciously” welcomed back by his fellow MLAs after his expulsion late last year,

and said he was not aware of any MLAs who opposed his return. Bennett was fired as the energy minister in November after he publicly criticized former premier Gordon Campbell’s reorganization of natural resource ministries. He then launched a lengthy tirade against Campbell’s “bullying,” suggesting B.C. Liberal MLAs suffered from “almost batteredwife syndrome” from Campbell’s domineering behaviour. Bennett was expelled from the party caucus at its next meeting. He has since said he regrets his personal comments about Campbell, which were intended to put pressure on him to step down sooner, and Bennett was willing to apologize to

the caucus for his conduct. Shortly after Clark’s selection as B.C. Liberal leader in February, the caucus welcomed Peace River South MLA Blair Lekstrom back. Lekstrom quit the cabinet and caucus in the spring of 2010 because his constituents objected to the harmonized sales tax, but later said Clark’s plan to hold a referendum on the HST this June was sufficient to bring him back. Lekstrom was immediately reappointed to cabinet as transportation minister, a signal of the importance of conservative-leaning areas along the Alberta border where criticism of the HST has been intense. While in exile, Bennett said he was considering running

as an independent in Kootenay East or looking at a rejuvenated B.C. Conservative Party. He has consistently advocated for rural B.C. in a province dominated by the three quarters of the population living in the southwest. The B.C. Conservatives have closed their nominations for the long-vacant leadership, with former Delta-Richmond East MLA John Cummins the only candidate to lead them. The party has a convention scheduled for May 28. Clark has kept her options open for her own return to the B.C. legislature, hinting it is most likely she will seek the VancouverPoint Grey seat vacated by Campbell.

In terms of feedback, Tangie Genshorek, co-ordinator of KHAP, said the organization will look at addressing the difficulties some people are having with landlord references along with the housing needs of seniors and youth. “The key to it [the plan] is just having everybody continually engaged like this, so ideas keep coming forward and we’re not missing anything,� she said. Genshorek said the next step in the plan is to take an inventory of the support services in town to see if there are any gaps or overlapping. There is no date for doing any inventory yet, Genshorek said. KHAP also intends to hold similar type forums every year to update the progress of the plan.

Clockwise from top left: Bob Hughes executive director of the AIDS Society of Kamloops, Tangie Genshorek, co-ordinator of the Kamloops Homelessness Action Plan, Kelly Row, executive director of the New Life Mission, Ed Temple, executive pastor of the Kamloops Alliance church and Ken Salter, street-outreach worker with the AIDS Society of Kamloops were part of the audience at the Alliance church as Genshorek and the rest of the plan’s committee updated the community on what it has accomplished in the past year to reach its goal of ending homelessness in Kamloops by 2015.

ALL STAR WRESTLING, GAMBIAN STYLE By Chris McBeath SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

It was a Coca Cola umbrella that first caught my eye. It seemed somewhat incongruous, flailing around in the middle of traditional Africa ... rather like the opening scene from the movie The Gods Must Be Crazy. For a moment, I mused if the parent company was taking a stranger-than-fiction moment and propelling it into a larger-than-life television commercial until a sharp, shrill whistle jarred me to reality. In The Gambia, wrestling is serious business. It’s the country’s national sport and, deep seated within its culture, wrestling is a source of community honor, personal pride and cold, hard cash. To be a Gambian wrestler is akin to playing in the National Football League

and this, the weekly championships at Serrekunda, are like the regional finals. Candidates, the best of their village, come from all over the countryside and when they reach Serrekunda, Mandinka is pitched against Fula, Jola against Wolof, Serahuli and others. The competition is fierce and while wrestlers in the preliminary rounds look as if they’ve had too much Yamba (local palm wine) the night before, the action soon takes on a life of its own. Superstition also plays a big role in traditional wrestling and most fighters enlist the help of the Marabout, a medicine man, and wear small amulets and shells in the belief they hold various protective and strengthening taboos. Like their North American counterparts, these young Gambians must be as skilled at bringing their opponent to the ground as they

are as posturing their “in your face” egos around the arena. Sound familiar? However, unlike All Star Wrestlers, these village warriors wrestle each other in a sand pit arena, the rules are minimal — no fancy hand-locks or technical throws — just get him down, and candidates must be extraordinarily adept at strutting, dancing, sparring and bragging any challengers into action. To wrestle and win is to make money so pity the six foot tall, 350 lb champion who cannot find a challenger for the night. And they don’t do it alone; every one of the fifty or so athletes is accompanied by an enthusiastic band of noisy followers. Beating drums and blowing whistles, these groupies trail their heroes in a discordant chorus and when their man wins the entire troupe does a victory lap of the arena, hold-

ing out cache bags into which appreciative spectators throw Delasi coins. With up to twenty matches being wrestled simultaneously, it’s easy to lose track of who’s on parade, who’s touting for a challenger or who’s wrestling who. Heads are locked into shoulders, hands grasp frantically for any advantage and feet look as if they’re dancing on hot coals, kicking up clouds of sand until there’s an eye level haze around each tussle. And above it all, a red and white umbrella, attached to a soda-filled cart, wobbles its way through the crowds — one cultural icon trespassing upon another. By the time the final championships arrive, the feverish atmosphere has given way

to hushed expectation. Side bets are heavy and spectators are at the edge of their seats — which seats, by the by, found their way into the stadium thanks to NASA. Yet another anomaly. The Gambia’s strategic geography made it one of the Space Shuttle’s back up landing sites and Uncle Sam was quick to replace the Air-force inspired K-fields — metal flats used as rough-andready runways — with tarmac. It’s virtually the only paved road to be found in the country and today, those metal flats are landing strips of a different nature with their chain links sinking an impression into every derriere. But for 10 dalasi, nobody’s complaining.

Stripes worth Keeping By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kayla Keeping has a firm handshake — she’s also got a grip on what it takes to be a top-class hockey official. The 20-year-old Kamloops product was one of two officials from B.C. selected by Hockey Canada to ply their craft at the ESSO Cup, the national midget AAA girls’ championship, which runs from April 17 to April 23 in St. Albert, Alta. B.C. Hockey’s referee-in-chief Rob Fryer passed the good news on to Keeping. “I was really excited,” said Keeping, who grew up just outside Kamloops near Deadman’s Creek. “It’s just another step up the ladder and you get your name known in other provinces. I was really happy.” Keeping first laced up her skates as a player when she was eight and played minor hockey for a mixed team in Ashcroft. She is still playing — and playing well. Keeping patrols the blueline for the Kamloops Vibe, who won a female senior A provincial championship and are vying for a Western Canadian title this weekend in Winnipeg. The Kamloops kid, who works for Sam’s Custom Cabinets, started officiating five years ago, when the province was especially short on female linesmen and referees. She immediately gained a newfound respect for those who call the game. “It totally changes your mindset,” Keeping said. “You have a whole new respect for the job that they have and you accept when they make mistakes and you just kind of deal with it. “Before I was officiating, you wanted them to be perfect all the time.” Keeping, a Level-3 certified referee, will be serving as a linesman in St. Albert. The only other official from B.C. attending the ESSO Cup is Nanaimo’s Jamie Scriver, a referee. Being selected to work a national event like the ESSO Cup is the culmination of a lot of hard work for Keeping, who learned from her mistakes along the way. “In my second year reffing, I had all of the parents screaming at me from both teams, and both coaches, and that was the worst for me, traumatizing-wise. “I talked to my team [of officials], asked what could we have done differently, and talked to the referee-in-chief of Kamloops and said, ‘Look, this is what happened, what can I do differently?’” Calling games at nationals — Keeping expects to line a game each day during the round-robin — is an honour in itself. Getting the nod to man the lines in the playoff stage or, in a perfect world, during the nationally televised final, would be the proverbial cherry on top. It isn’t likely that Keeping, who is making her first trip to nationals, will be selected to take the ice for the final. That doesn’t mean she won’t be waiting by the phone in her hotel room the night before the big game, though. “I would be very excited, that’s a big step,” Keeping said. “The competition is getting tough when you get to this level.” Keeping, chuckling to herself, said she has peaked as a player — but sky is the limit as far as officiating goes. “I really want to improve and learn from the other women that are there that have done these levels before,” she said. “As a referee, I can keep going up.”

McLean resigns from KTFC post Jarett McLean has resigned from his post as the Kamloops Track and Field Club’s head coach. The Saskatoon product joined the club in 2006 and has decided to leave to pursue other opportunities, according to a KTFC press release. “On behalf of the board of directors, we want to thank Jarett for his significant contribution to our club and to the sport of track and field,” the press release said. “We are grateful for his dedication and committment to the board and the athletes within our club and wish him well in his future endeavors.”

TRU soccer girls fighting breast cancer The TRU WolfPack women’s soccer squad is putting on a clinic,

with the proceeds going toward breast cancer research (CIBC Run for the Cure). Players age six to 16 are invited to Hillside Stadium for the clinic on Sunday, April 10. A donation of $10 per player participating is recommended. “This is something the girls love to do,“ WolfPack head coach Tom McManus said. “I put together the practice plan, but the players themselves are responsible for running it. It gives them great experience and, at the same time, reaffirms our athletic department’s desire to be involved in the community.” Younger players will take the field between 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. The older group will participate from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. To register, email TRU sports information officer Larry Read at lread@tru.ca.

10 Questions with a Super Bowl champion Mitch Berger, a Kamloops-born Super Bowl champion punter, was on his way to the golf course in Scottsdale, Arizona, when KTW’s Marty Hastings caught up with him. Berger was happy to answer 10 questions that dealt with his 15-year National Football League career.

The best coach you ever played for was? — “Mike Tomlin. I have lots of reasons: “How well he managed the game. How well he managed me and how, even though I got injured that year (2008-2009), he planned to bring me back after I rehabbed my injury and be his playoff punter and win the Super Bowl with him.”

The worst coach you ever played for was? — “Tie. “Rich Kotite, who cut me from my original job in Philadelphia, who was no kind of head coach, and Josh McDaniels in

Denver, who was the last coach I ever had. “Both of them cut me and got fired the next year.”

Biggest party animal you played with? — “Robert Smith (former NFL running back and current ESPN college football analyst) in his prime. “Of the guys that I played with, he was the biggest culprit with me.”

Who is the best QB in the league today? — “Tom Brady or Peyton Manning. “They’re champions. They make everybody better. They’re truly franchise quarterbacks. “They’re guys that live for the game.”

A cancer in the dressing room? — “Cris Carter I despise more than anybody I’ve ever played with. “Every teammate that he has had will tell you the same. “He thought he was

the biggest deal ever. He was arrogant. “He made the guys on the team worse. “He made fun of the defensive backs. Our DBs were the worst in the NFL. In practice, he used to scold them. In games, he used to be on the field screaming at them and yelling at them. “Guys had to be pulled apart that wanted to fight him all the time. “He was the biggest, most arrogant, self-absorbed jerk that anyone has ever played with.”

pranksters and that’s one reason why our team was so good. “Everybody was such good buddies. Everbody loved hanging out together. “One of the biggest in Minnesota was Randy Moss, believe it or not. “He’s only that way around people he knows, in places that he feels comfortable.”

Player smoothest with the ladies was? — Me, again, of course. “Robert Griffith, a safety in Minnesota, was pretty smooth. He was like a little GQ model.

The 2012 Super Bowl champion will be? — “It’s hard to say, but the Green Bay Packers are going to be the favourite. “Aaron Rodgers is only going to get better. Clay Matthews is only going to get better. “They’re young and they’re talented.”

Least sane player you played with was? — “John Randle. “We nicknamed him the motor. “He never stopped talking. He never stopped moving. It’s just like the way he played football. He’d wrestle guys in the locker room. “He’d be talking shit the whole time. He was just nuts.”

Biggest prankster you played with? — “Jeff Reed in Pittsburgh, but it seemed like half the team was

A minute with Mitch The best leader in the dressing room? — “I’d say Brian Dawkins in Denver, even though we were terrible. “He was a great leader. “Drew Brees in New Orleans. He was great in the community. “Pittsburgh was by committee, but I’d say James Farrior and Hines Ward, in Pittsburgh.”

Berger recently sold his house in Arizona and is moving back to Vancouver in May.

WCT season closes on a Sexy, funny note (Editor’s note: The following is an updated review of Western Canada Theatre’s production of Sexy Laundry in its last season. WCT is bringing it back, with the same cast and director, next week — so a recap will give you a good idea of what to expect.)

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE GENIUS OF JEREMY TOW WILL again be evident Thursday night (April 14) as Western Canada Theatre wraps up its new season, one with WCTs late artistic producer’s fingerprints all over it.

Mounting Sexy Laundry in the Pavilion Theatre remains a wise decision, one Tow made deliberately when he was preparing the season, taking advantage of the intimacy of the smaller setting and focusing on two incredible actors in the comedy by Michele Riml. The audience will gaze into a hotel-room scene for two hours of laughter as Alice and Henry tried to recapture the zest that, after 25 years of marriage, has vanished. A floundering marriage isn’t usually food for frivolity but, in the capable acting hands of Janet Michael and Gerry Mackay, it

apy, massage, fantasies and even black leather and a whip in attempts to save her marriage. And Mackay is the perfect husband, truly in love with his wife, but at the comfortable stage in the relationship that Alice didn’t seem to understand. He’s as funny as Michael and matches her confusion word for word as the couple tries to figure out why

Alice is so sad. You simply couldn’t ask for a better wrap-up to what has been a memorable WCT season. Sexy Laundry, directed by the equally gifted Andrew McIlroy, continues to April 30. Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live! Box office, 250374-5483 or online at kamloopslive.com.

ever about to do more than propel me forward, Alice sees this inability as yet another reason for her unhappiness. It would be easy to dislike Alice as she rants and cajoles, all the while using Sex for Dummies as her guide, but Michael is just too gifted an actress to let that happen. I feel for her, too, as she tries aromather-

CFBX sets lofty goals By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

The future of campus radio station CFBX can be summed up simply: Equipment. “We have the power now,” station manager Brant Zwicker said, noting the purchase of a new transmitter boosted the FM station to 400 watts, “that improved the quality of our sound.” But ongoing equipment replacement remains a priority. The station bought a new console late last year, after doing significant fundraising to pay for the purchase. Now, the long-term goal is “to get to higher ground,” Zwicker said. FM signals are different than AM signals; they don’t travel up and down hills very well and they bounce around when they encounter obstacles. “Another 1,000 feet would improve the quality of our signal a lot,” Zwicker said. But, like everything for the student-funded, mainly non-commercial station, that means finding money and a location that will accept them. Zwicker said station staff have looked at some of the larger buildings on campus, as well as elevated

locations nearby, but none will work. He’s found one spot that he thinks would work but discussion with its owner is moving slowly. Once a site is identified, the station would have several governmental hoops to go through to get permission to make the move. “It would also mean a lot of fundraising,”

Zwicker said. He’s considered adding some more commercial spots to the programming but is reluctant to do that for many reason. Mainly, he said, it just wouldn’t work well with the block programming they use, with an hour or more dedicated to different musical genres and talk shows. Going to round-the-

clock programming is also being looked at but that move would need to have even minimal staffing to run an automated programming between midnight and 8 a.m., when the station is now off-air. Being a volunteerdriven station with shows hosted by students and others from the community, it’s not easy to find someone interested in a graveyard shift, Zwicker said. The station’s licence comes up for renewal in August and work has been done to see it through the process, something Zwicker hopes leads to a sevenyear licence, the maximum possible. In the immediate future, one change is moving the annual record fair — a fundraiser for the station — from June to likely October is expected to see it do better than in the past. There aren’t many students on campus in June, Zwicker said, while in October, the new influx is there, likely settled and ready to do some vinyl shopping — although the sale includes CDs and, at least a few times in the past, even eighttracks. For more information on the station, go online to thex.ca.

loopsfilmsociety.org/ festival.htm. ■ The KFS is also about to screen its spring series of films. The first film to be featured is Heartbeats on March 31. It’s the story of three friends in search of the perfect love who are involved in their own romantic triangle. On April 14, the society screens Of Gods and Men, which won the Grand Prize last year at the Cannes Film Festival. A docudrama, the film tells the story

of the final weeks of a group of Trappist monks living in Algeria. The monks have been threatened by fundamentalist terrorists and must decide if they stay in their remote mountainside village or flee. Birdwatchers will be shown on April 28, The film by Marco Bechis begins with a boatload of tourists sailing up a river through a jungle. They come upon a group of Indians armed with homemade weapons. The tourists are excited, they sail on and the Indians don their jeans, get their pay and continue on with the day. A story of the clash between cultures, destruction of rainforests and the quest for oil, the cast includes

real Indians with no acting experience. The series wraps up with Biutiful on May 12, a film that garnered an Oscar Award nomination for lead actor Javier Bardem. The film tells the story of a man who is both father and criminal, dying of cancer and on the road to redemption, stumbling over hurdles to achieving his goal. The films will be shown at the Paramount Theatre, 503 Victoria St.

Admission is $8. Tickets can be bought at the theatre or at MovieMart, 520 Seymour St.

How to get fat on carrots — really

F

UNNY THINGS HAPPEN WHEN CHEFS GET TOGETHER FOR DINNER. Oh, sure, at the home of chef Brett Thompson and his wife Tara, it seems like any other dinner party. People arrive, wine is poured and mingling begins. There’s small talk to start. “Cute dog. Pointer?” “Yep.” And then, as inevitably as time and gravity, all paths of conversation lead toward food. “Were you at the last chefs’ meeting?” “The pate en croute?! I stole a piece off someone else’s plate when they got up to go to the bathroom.” Soon enough, one at a time, the cooks in the house begin to make surreptitious reconnaissance missions to the kitchen. “Need help?” “Away with you, stealer of secrets! Here, have a cookie and go.” Thus banned, the cooks resort to peering from vulnerable spots over the counter, positing innocent questions about the pedigrees of the vegetables. “Special order for those yellow DARCIE HOSSACK beets?” Bon “And they were late by a day. Gave APPÉTIT the produce manager a piece of my mind.” The cooks next engage in collective scent analysis, attempting to sort aromas into categories. “Potato pave must be for that braised beef.” “It’s oxtail. I made him tell me that much.” Finally, the first course is ready and the first plate styled to perfection. Those of us who’ve come without an agenda beyond enjoying the meal move gleefully toward the dining room — at which time our gratification is delayed when one cook or another shouts: “Wait! I need a picture.” There’s a pause while several snap-happy smart-phone users document the birth of pan-seared trout nestled on a salad of petalthin beet slices. Over first forkfuls, while the cooks make queries about methods and equipment used, I and the other wives provide ambient yummy noises and wonder whether licking the plates would be taken as a compliment or indication of poor upbringing. We decide to pace ourselves. There are, after all, five more courses to come, each paired by the resident amateur sommelier. For the slow-roasted pork belly with pea shoots, glasses of mead are poured. A first for everyone present, the honey wine surprises by tasting of honey without the sweetness. Sublime. Suddenly, the smart phones are out again and everyone is Googling. The mead was brought in a suitcase from England but, having remembered an article on honey wines being produced in the Okanagan, no one can rest until they’re sourced and bookmarked. Only then can the eating resume. There’s hoisin duck breast next, followed by the oxtail and pave. And, before each, more closeups. X See DINNER B8

Dinner with chef memorable X From B7

Now pleasantly full, no one minds the delays so very much. Eating at leisure is a luxury and, by now, hours have passed with-

out much notice of the time. We’re all aware, though, that the fifth course, the one we’ve all been eating toward, is next.

Spiced carrot ice cream, with shortbread cookies sandwiched with cream cheese frosting. Carrot cake: Deconstructed. I think there was applause. There was a cheese course, too, with a story all its own (I’ll be getting t to that at another date). But, the happy ending i to this story is that, around midnight, we all waddled away from the

In a small pot, steep carrot juice, cinnamon sticks, allspice and cloves over low heat. Keep at barely a simmer for several minutes. Remove from heat, allow to cool completely, then strain out the spices. Whisk eggs until light and fluffy (about five minutes using a power mixer). Slowly add both sugars until completely combined, continuing to whisk until the result is a light and foamy mixture. Add cream and carrot juice and mix gently until just incorporated.

The second annual Kamloops Target Sports Association 3D Archery Shoot was held at the Kamloops Archery Range, located south of the weigh scale on the West Trans-Canada Highway on April 2. Two courses, each with 20 life-size, threedimensional targets made of foam, provided archers throughout B.C. the opportunity to hit targets each day during the two-day event. For target-shooting clubs from smaller communities, it offered a chance for some first-rate target shooting and camaraderie with other shooters. To become involved in the sport, contact Brian Dennis at 250-319-1201 or email kdennis2@telus.net.

Any job is better than no job at all — isn’t it?

A

N AUSTRALIAN GOVERNMENTsupported survey recently discovered people who have a demanding job without any security or fair compensation had lower mental-health scores than people who were unemployed. Even a single negative aspect of job quality was associated with poorer mental health in the study, prompting one of the researchers to say: “The erosion of work conditions may incur a health cost, which over the longer term will be both economically and socially counterproductive.” Knowing that, it would not surprise you that, when unemployed people found a highquality job, mental-health scores improved. The problem is in defining what a “good” or “bad” job really is. In this study, this was determined by fairness of pay, working conditions and other factors. What is remarkable is the government that paid for the study found out government policies that promoted jobs of any kind may end up costing more in health and mental-health factors.

The “make-work” projects governments adopted to raise employment after the economic meltdown may have some unwanted costs and issues. We know all people have four major psychological needs: Power, the sense that one belongs, the freedom to move or grow and the need to have fun and laughter. Essentially, for many people, work is one of the key areas in which we find our identity — and we know our identity is linked to our self-esteem and personal power. Unhealthy work environments are marked by the absence of laughter and fun. Just like unhealthy classrooms where students are punished for laughter or and diminished for making choices, productivity declines, absenteeism increases and health suffers. The higher the stresses and demands of a job, the more important it is to have an employer who recognizes these four needs all people have and

who makes attempts to create an environment at work where these needs can be met. It is true there are always those employees who do not seem to know when to stop having fun and start doing work, but these people are surprisingly few and should be dealt with individually. Instead, many workplaces punish and put restrictions on the whole crew instead of the one or two who require them. If you want tell us the good and the bad news about your workplace, we would love to hear your stories. You can write to us at Kamloops@cmha.bc.ca and tell us about the place where you work, and we may well report back (discreetly and anonymously) about some of the things you tell us. Thank you for reading our column and remember to have fun responsibly at work, because in the words of Confucius, “Choose a job you like and you’ll never have to work a day in your life.”

Throughout the world, volunteers play an inval and defending their respective nations. This collective movement of volunteerism spans across many boundaries. More than 12-million Canadians contribute more than two-billion hours of their time every year. Volunteers contribute to our nation’s economy, benefit our environment and create safer communities. Volunteering is linked to better physical and mental health. New Canadians use it as an effective means to offer skills and talents as they integrate into our society. Overall, volunteering makes people feel proud to be Canadian. This is indeed the power of volunteerism. It is also a cornerstone of democracy. During elections, it is often easy to take for granted the volunteers who ensure the health and vibrancy of our democracy. Volunteering is at the core of democratic participation and the election process. This truth gets lost while citizens and political parties contemplate the issues relating to the future of the country. Today, it seems as though election campaigns are focused more on who wins and who loses. With the help of the mainstream media, average citizens are taken on a wild ride of volatile polling numbers, often ridiculous political punditry and the odd scandals that only seem to build up a sense of cynicism towards our democratic process. In the recent past, Canada has certainly experienced some of the lowest voter-turnout rates in history. Recognizing and highlighting the role of volunteers in safeguarding democracy is critical to turning civic disengagement around. Democracy is more than just voting. It’s all about volunteering, participating, being engaged. Campaigning, political work, activism and protesting all show the critical components of democratic involvement: volunteering, participating and being engaged. When we look closely behind all of the bravado and posturing of political campaigning, we see an active citizenry that holds our democratic system together. Behind every local and national campaign, countless volunteers are assigned tasks which vary from making phone calls, knocking on doors or delivering pamphlets to

unteering effort in the country. The role of volunteers in supporting democracy is not, however, solely relegated to involvement in political campaigning. Volunteers play an important role in building civic participation and encouraging such participation in the holistic democratic process. While the range of activities can vary from delivering one pamphlet to a neighbour to putting a name on the ballot and running as a candidate, they are all examples that make one of Volunteer Canada’s main mantras come alive — the value of one, the power of many. During the last election, Volunteer Canada, as the national voice for volunteerism, led a national awareness campaign to highlight the role of volunteers not only during elections but in all aspects of our communities.

VOLUNTEER KAMLOOPS Enhancing Our Community For Over 20 Years

Banker volunteers for those in need By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

F YOU’RE DEALING WITH Bev Bloomfield outside of her day job at a bank, it might be the last thing you would want. However, her face will likely be a most-welcomed sight. That’s because Bloomfield has been volunteering her time for 13 years to help those facing the biggest personal crises in their lives. She’s the co-director of the city’s emergency social services (ESS), and she’s been out to lend a hand at all the major fires or disasters in the community. When wildfires raged in the region back in 2003 and thousands were evacuated from their homes, the Kamloops resident worked non-stop for six weeks to help the displaced. When hundreds of residents in Lillooet were evacuated to Kamloops in the summer of 2009 after a wildfire there got too close to homes, Bloomfield was also on hand, making sure the temporary refugees needs were met. More recently, when a man tried to set a Brocklehurst home on fire in January, Bloomfield was called to help the family find a place to stay for night. “It’s very rewarding,” she said, noting she keeps a beeper by her side 24 hours a day. Specifically, ESS is called for any natural disaster, fire, floods, police standoffs or any situation where Kamloops and area residents are asked to leave their homes. In the case of a house fire, ESS will support the victims for 72 hours, providing food, clothing and lodging as necessary. “It’s a very stressful situation, because you don’t always know what the other person is coming

Any time there’s an emergency, Bev Bloomfield lends some help from,” Bloomfield said. She said at times, she’ll forget to eat, drink or go to the bathroom. That stress is somewhat alleviated in that she has support from

her employer, RBC. The bank allows her to take time off when she needs it and recently the RBC Foundation donated $500 to ESS.

Dealing with the toxic spirituality of temptation

T

HE SEASON OF LENT temptations.” It is not possible for any one is upon us, reminding of us to go far through life blind to many faithful the to the awful, insidious force of place and purpose of temptation. worldly temptations in believing There have been times in the lives, not just for this season but lives of all of us when somethroughout the year. times we have felt As far back as that escape seemed 2,000 years, James, almost impossible. the half-brother of At Jesus’s bapJesus, reminded the tism, after the persecuted and the Spirit of God had scatted Christians descended upon him, the godly privilege he was driven into of believers underthe wilderness to be going temptations tempted by the devil. in these words: NARAYAN MITRA Again, as he Blessed (or, happy) faced Jerusalem for is the man that You Gotta Have the last time, which endureth temptation FAITH of us can realize (James 1:12). the awful agony as Temptation is one he cried out to one of his own of the inescapable facts of life. beloved disciples who tried to Temptation was a fact in the dissuade him from all that the life of the Holy Son of God cross meant? when he was on earth. Then, at Gethsemane, in that It is a fact to be reckoned awful paroxysm of the fury of with in the life of every man the evil one, there was Jesus’s and woman seeking to serve the experience. Lord. At times, we, too, face our As we read the record of the version of Gethsemane — only temptations of Jesus, if we write then, let us remember that we that down as only allegory, we shall also have the angels of God wipe out the inspiration that standing by to strengthen us. leads people to victory. We are not alone there. It was not only during the 40 There is a danger sometimes days in the wilderness that Jesus lest we think of the Christian life suffered being tempted. There was one occasion when far too much in terms of some catchy hymn tunes, whereas it he was talking to his disciples is a contest in which we feel we and summed up his three years’ can never afford to be caught ministry in just two words: “My

off-guard. It was not for reclining on couches of scented rose leaves that we were bidden to take on “the whole armour of God.” But, no matter how fierce, how overwhelming the forces that are arrayed against us, these are not greater than the forces that can lead us on to victory. Right into the very heat of the furnace there stands beside us One like unto the Son of God and says: “I, too have felt the scorching flames. I know what it means. I, too, have suffered being tempted, yet without sin.” Let’s blot out forever from our mind the thought that, because Jesus was God, therefore in some mysterious way temptations did not have the same power as they have for us. It means Jesus, when he was a boy, was tempted just as we were when we were boys. That, as he grew up to be a young man, those temptations that attacked us attacked him too. But, here is the glory of it for us — he came through victorious, without sin. So, to every child of God, we can say: Take those word for strength and consolation, and encouragement — the words of power — and just hold on to them in the hour of temptation. They are the very words of God. And not only he suffers with us when we are tempted, but “he

is able also to succour them that are tempted.” That is the crux of the whole thing for us. He overcame and his power is available for us if we want to overcome. What does it all mean? First of all, it is true that we are being tempted more than ever before. The devil will not easily part with his slaves, even though the redemption money has been paid. Also, before we gave our life to Christ, we were drifting, we were just going easily down the stream and were not conscious of the terrific force of the current that held us in its grip. Now, we have begun to pull against the stream and are realising how strong the current is. We cannot drift against the stream. But perhaps this is the most encouraging fact of all, that God has allowed us to go into the wilderness to be tempted, because God knows we are going to win. Again, listen to the Word of God: “When he is tried he shall receive a crown of life.” That crown is promised to the person who is tried and tested, and who triumphs. Here is, then, the promise of victory: “No temptation has overtaken you but such as is common to man; and God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you

are able. “But with the temptation will provide the way of escape also, so that you will be able to endure it.” That means every temptation carries with it its own way of escape. This is the promise of victory. Narayan Mitra is a chaplain at Thompson Rivers University,

GIOVANNI MACCHIONE

In Memorium VINCI NICODEMO June 30, 1926 April 10, 2010

Aug. 14, 1921 – March 26, 2011 To a great loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather, Giovanni Macchione, who suddenly passed away March 26, 2011 at the age of 89 years old, in Belgium. Giovanni was born in Grimaldi, Italy, August 14, 1921. He and his wife, Rosalbina, then moved to Belgium. Predeceased by his wife of 59 years, Rosalbina on July 10, 2001. Also predeceased by his brother Pietro in Toronto and his sister Nierda in Italy. Giovanni is survived by his six children; his oldest daughter Teresina (Guido) Plastina of Kamloops, BC and his other five children in Belgium: Maria (Franco), Raffelle (Dominica), Peter (Patricia), Alba (Pasquale) and Mirella (Marino). Also survived by his 13 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren and his sisters; Mellia Rocheta of Belgium, Maria (Rosalbino) Presta of Toronto, Tonina (Victorio) of Toronto and Silvia Macchione of Toronto. Numerous friends in Belgium and Italy.

It is with sadness we announce the sudden passing of Howard N. Horning on April 3, 2011. Howard is survived by his two sons, Don (Rodicel) Horning, Richard (Elaine) Horning and several grandchildren.

To lose a loved one is hard to bear, so deep is all the sorrow. The pain, the anguish, the loneliness and the great dread of tomorrow! But the love, the memories and the joy, death can never take away. For they are ours to hold and keep, till we see that loved one again some day!

Dad and Nonno You will always be in our hearts. We all miss you dearly - love you always. Your daughter Teresina and Guido Plastina, grandchildren: Frank, Lori, Maria, Sara and Anthony

She is survived by her loving husband Tom, daughter Kaylie Walsh of Kamloops, her mother Sandra Grier of Clearwater B.C., mother in-law Shirley Walsh of Kamloops B.C., brother Wes (Julie) Grier of Prince George B.C (Amanda, Louie and Jessie), and sister in-law Linda (Paul) Anderson of Burnaby (Catherine and Rachel). Predeceased by father Herman Grier; father in-law Jim Walsh, aunts Louise & Lynnette; and cousins Bill & Brian. Marlene was born in Williams Lake on December 17, 1964.

A memorial service will be held at Bethel Funeral Chapel, 5605 - 27th Street,Vernon, BC on Tuesday, April 12 at 1:30 pm (250-542-1187)

STAGES OF GRIEF

Dad you are dearly loved and missed by your children and families, Romeo/Marino, Simpatico, Sia, Vinci, Harvey, Woods, and Embury

DENIAL One of the initial feelings we experience at the time of a death and often for a few days to a few weeks afterwards is that of denial. We simply have difficulty believing and accepting that the death has even happened. If the death is sudden, our denial may be even more pronounced. But even when we know that the death will occur, as with someone who has a terminal illness, we still can feel this strong refusal to accept the inevitable loss when it actually happens. SHOCK Along with denial comes shock. We can often feel numbed and overwhelmed by the loss. Sometimes we act and react slowly, or we may become confused or unable to function in our usual way. Nothing may seem real, especially our loss. This first stage is simply nature's way of protecting us at the time of our initial loss. Shock cushions us and insulates us. In turn this helps us to deal with the reality of our loss as we attend to the various tasks surrounding the funeral arrangements and the notifying of family members and friends. It provides the internal buffer zone that we need to be able to cope. Just as a tortoise that is threatened will retreat into its shell for a period of time until it feels it is safe to venture out again, so too do we emotionally retreat for a time in order to cope. GUILT AND ANGER Within the initial period of our grief we may experience guilt or even anger. Often the "if only I had" phrase is invoked over and over. We may blame ourselves or the doctors or even God for the loss of our loved one and then become angry and upset. Guilt is actually another expression of denial, since somewhere within our psyche we blame ourselves for the death and feel that we might have prevented it "if only" we had followed, or not followed, some par ticular course of action. We do not always comprehend in our grief that there is no real correlation in reality between the death and our own action or lack of action. So, we tend to say things like: If only I had not given him permission to use the car. If only we had gone to another doctor. If only I had been a better wife/mother, husband/child. Sometimes the guilt may come from even more specific circumstances. We may also feel guilt because of unfinished business or an argument that was had prior to the death. If a husband dies of a heart attack at work, the widow may feel guilty if that very morning there was an argument and words were exchanged. Or, two buddies were involved in a boating accident and the driver of the boat survives while his friend does not, guilt may engulf the survivor. In both examples, because of the circumstances, guilt may be overwhelming, even if there is no actual causal relationship. Blaming and punishing oneself over such incidents are unfortunately all too common. The anger comes from the fact that we are hurting so much that we want to find something or someone to lash out at and to blame in order that we can express our pain and rid ourselves of the guilt. It is not unusual to become angry at the same people that we blame for our loss: i.e. ourselves, the doctors, or even God. We may even be angry at the deceased, for "abandoning" us, or for not following the diet and routine that the doctor gave them. If death was the result of a suicide then we may feel even more rage at the senselessness and selfishness of this act. It is not unusual to feel anger even at the deceased or God. This is again a natural expression of our pain and sorrow. It is only by expressing and sharing our grief that we are able to ventilate and unburden ourselves and thus, continue healing. Even a scar or wound needs to bleed and may scar up, then bleed, and then scar up again on its road to recovery.

I am in the graceful rush Of beautiful birds in circling ´ight. I am the start-shine of the night. I am in the ´owers 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,
