Parkade plans almost finalized Counter-petition opportunity will likely begin on Aug. 30 By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

City council is expected today Aug. 9) to approve a bylaw that will allow the city to borrow $8 million to complete construction of the controversial Lorne Street parkade at Riverside Park. The parkade is estimated to cost $7.8 million, with the project expected to go out to tender in late December. In May, city council decided to proceed with a two-level, 350-stall parkade where the Lorne Street parking lot now sits adjacent to Riverside Park. If, as expected, the initial borrowing bylaw is approved today, it will then be sent to the province for a review, with a final thumbs-up from council expected on Aug. 30. That would then trigger the alternative-approval process, which gives opponents 30 days to gather 10 per cent of the electorate’s signatures, thus forcing a referendum on the issue. The city would likely set up the time-

line for the alternative-approval process in early September. A group called the Kamloops Voters Society had originally indicated it wanted to get involved or lead a public response to the alternative-approval pro-

cess, but has since backed away, calling it a huge commitment. The parkade plan includes building 220 new stalls at a cost of $33,000 per stall and raising downtown parkingmeter rates by 25 cents. It also includes spending $300,000 to put footings in place for the potential to add an extra level to the parkade. In June, council approved a $323,000 contract for Stantec Architecture to handle the detailed engineering design, preparation of construction documents, tendering and award and construction of contract administration for the parkade. The latest report noted Stantec has completed 90 per cent of the design and reduced the number of stalls to 348 from 355. City politicians also voted against a covenant being placed on the planned two-level parkade to ensure a third level couldn’t be added without further approval from council. The city has already spent $280,000 to carry out feasibility studies, public input and detailed design work.

CATS IN THE HAT These kittens look cute and cuddly as they rest in a hat on a couch in an apartment unit on Columbia Street. However, how the baby felines and their mama arrived in the Kamloops home is anything but a cute and cuddly tale. It is a story of indifferent callousness that, but for the intervention of a caring city couple, could have had a far darker epilogue.

Sports hall of fame history arrives at Kamloops Games By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Western Canada Summer Games have stormed into Kamloops — and brought with them some amazing pieces of history from that other big sporting event B.C. hosted recently. A number of artifacts from the Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games are on display through Sunday, Aug. 14, in Riverside Park. The B.C. Sports Hall of Fame has a display set up in the park — near the bandshell — to coincide with the Games’ nightly festival. “We’ve got an outreach program, and we go into communities across the province,” said Sue Griffin, president and CEO of the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame. “Normally, we try to partner

with a festival, but we also try to have something to do with sports. “This was a natural to come out to Kamloops during these Games.” Some of the artifacts on display are sure to bring back memories for anyone who followed the Olympics in 2010. Remember Canadian skeleton racer Jon Montgomery’s iconic walk through Whistler, beer pitcher in hand? That jug is on display, as is Montgomery’s racing suit, signed Team Canada jerseys from Scott Neidermayer and Roberto Luongo and a host of other items — including Nancy Greene’s torch signed by all of the final torchbearers at the opening ceremony. The B.C. Sports Hall of Fame has been on tour for months, having been displaced from its

regular home inside BC Place Stadium. The hall is hoping to get back into the renovated building in November, when the items in Kamloops will take their place in the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Celebration Gallery. Griffin said there’s also plenty in the display to keep kids interested, including high-tech sport simulators. Inside the two ImmersaDomes, people can virtually try their luck at bobsled or sit-skiing. There are also photo cut-outs, a hockey-net shootout and an e-postcard machine. “It’s really important that when we do this, we can engaging the kids, so they can touch and feel,” Griffin said. “It’s a great opportunity for us to come out and share.” The display is open from 4 p.m. until 10 p.m. through Sunday, Aug. 14.

History can be glimpsed this week in Riverside Park as the B.C. Sports Hall Of Fame displays some of the items that will be featured in its new 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Celebration Gallery, which will open in November in the hall’s home in BC Place Stadium. Included in the Kamloops display are the 2010 Olympic Winter Games Team Canada jerseys worn by Scott Niedermeyer and Roberto Luongo of the gold-medal-winning men’s hockey team and the pitcher from which gold-medallist skeleton racer Jon Montgomery drank following his victory in Whistler.

City’s unemployment rate drops

CITY HALL

By Jeremy Deutsch

Smoking out a casino plan

STAFF REPORTER

As most entertainment destinations have started to move away from offering smoking opportunities for customers, a popular downtown venue in Kamloops is hoping city council will look favourably on a plan to build a new patio for smokers. Lake City Casinos is planning to build a covered smoking patio on its Victoria Street lot, immediately east of the of the casino, that would be in place for three years. A temporary-use application will be in front of city council today (Aug. 9) for consideration. According to a staff report, the patio would hold 28 people and could only be accessed through the main entrance of the casino. Council is being asked to approve a notice of intent, which means the surrounding neighbourhood would be notified of the plans and have an opportunity to provide input before final approval.

Petition asks city to embrace Spirit of crosswalk It may be the jewel of North Kamloops, but some residents are concerned for their safety when it comes to accessing the North Shore Spirit Square. A petition will be making its way to city hall today (Aug. 9), asking council to consider a crosswalk to improve access to the public square. The square is located at the corner of Yew Street and Mackenzie Avenue and is home to several community events, including a weekly farmers’ market The petition, which specifically suggested difficulty in crossing the street during the Friday night farmers’ market, has gathered more than two dozen signatures from area residents. The spirit square opened in 2009 at a cost of $750,000.

As fears mount over the possibility of a second globaleconomic meltdown, there is some positive news coming from the Tournament Capital. According to Statistics Canada, the unemployment rate in Kamloops dropped by more than a percentage point last month — to 7.2 per cent in July from 8.4 per cent in June. The unemployment rate in July 2010 was an even eight per cent. KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod credits the growth in jobs to the private sector stepping up and doing most of the hiring. “Really, it’s private business starting to pick up in terms of

being drivers of our economy,” she said. “Over the last few years, where we’ve had to support the economy with public-sector spending and jobs, I think this a really important transition to our recovery.” Nearly 400 people dropped off the unemployed list, putting the overall number of jobless in Kamloops to 4,400. When compared to other cities of similar size in B.C., Kamloops is sitting in the middle of the pack when it comes to workforceemployment statistics. Chilliwack and Prince George are faring better, with unemployment rates of 4.5 per cent and 6.6 per cent respectively, while Vernon is at a 9.9 per cent and Nanaimo is at 14.5 per cent. Despite the positive

local numbers, there are fears Canada could succumb to the economic troubles plaguing the U.S. and other countries in Europe. In the last few days, markets around the world took a tumble, in part due to the U.S. debt-ceiling crisis and a downgrade of that country’s credit rating. McLeod said she is concerned and watching the developments around the world closely. “We know Canada continues to be in a much better position to weather these storms,” she said. Though McLeod wouldn’t speculate on what action her government might take if indeed Canada slips back into recession, she said her government has “tools” to support the country’s economy.

While Kamloops’ unemployment rate dropped by more than a full percentage point from June to July, fears of a global economic meltdown continue, following the downgrading of the U.S. credit rating and continued crises in the economies of various European counties.

City to learn emissions levels By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

This fall, Kamloops will learn just how far it has moved in becoming a more environmentally friendly city. The Community Energy and Emissions Inventory (CEEI) is part of a provincial effort to track and report on communitywide energy consumption and greenhouse-gas emissions every few years. While city officials will be watching the results closely, the report won’t necessarily be a reflection of what’s taking place at city hall. Jen Fretz, the city’s sustainability and environmentalservices manager, said the CEEI is different from what the city is doing in that the report measures all energy consumption and greenhouse gases for the entire community. For now, the city is just tracking its own numbers as a corporation while it works on a strategy to become carbon-neutral by 2012. “We want to make sure our house is in order before we go

out to the community and ask the community to get their house in order,� Fretz said. The effort is part of signing on to the province’s Climate Action Charter. From solid waste to fuel consumption in city vehicles, Fretz said carbon neutrality is a huge challenge because almost everything has some kind of emission. “It’s so big and all encompassing,� she said. “It’s a complicated and challenging process.� Fretz is confident the new CEEI, with statistics from 2010, will show the community has made strides in reducing energy consumption and greenhouse gases. The last report provided an interesting snapshot of how much energy and greenhouse gases the city uses and produces. Of all greenhouse-gas sources in Kamloops, 61 per cent come from on-road transportation, 29 per cent from buildings and 10 per cent from solid waste.

Bullrider Brady Fuller of Williams Lake had a wild time on Second Star at the Pritchard Rodeo on Saturday, Aug. 6, when his hand got caught in the rope. As seen in these photos (left to right, top to bottom), Fuller starts to slide under the bull, pushes himself out and onto his feet again, only to have the bull’s hind hoof come up, push him to the ground and stomp on the back of his neck. Thankfully, Fuller suffered only minor injuries. Allen Douglas photos

Duck! Dr. Don’tlittle is coming!

C

ALL ME DR. DON’TLITTLE. As in, don’t even think about wildlife, much less try to approach an animal. A 24-hour visit to Loon Lake near Clinton last week confirmed yet again I succeed only on grating on the Great Outdoors and all its inhabitants. From my arrival on Thursday morning at cabin No. 9 at Loon Lake’s Marigold Resort to my departure on Friday morning, I succeeded in killing a fish I was trying to save, maiming and likely murdering a plump, pheasant-type bird that was minding its own business and possibly suffocating a duck or two that were resting peacefully next to me and the campfire. And, this carnage resulted in not a speck of meat to eat, save for the hamburger patties I brought along from Save-On-Foods. The plan was to take my two kids — as unfamiliar to the Great Outdoors as their dad — to the lake to visit my oldest brother, who had rented a cabin for a few nights and who is very good at catching trout. The kids would swim in the lake, we’d roast marshmallows at night, we’d marvel at the thousands of stars and, maybe, finally, I’d learn how to fish. That learning curve got steep right away when one of three rods my brother has set up for trolling in the rented pontoon boat began bending. “Fish on!” he cried, rushing to start reeling it in. He made sure there was indeed a bite and handed me the rod. Here would be my first chance to actually reel in a catch. It was easy. Just turn the handle fast and watch dinner get closer to the boat. Just then, the spinning reel thing came off the pole and I was left holding the rod in my left hand and the reel thing in my right hand. My left hand jerked, confirming the fish was still attached to the hook. At that point, I ceded control to my brother, who, while re-attaching the spinning reel thing to the rod, noted in his 51 years on earth, he had never seen such a thing happen. “If I sat here for a month and tried, I couldn’t possibly do what you did,” he said of my fishing prowess.

So, it was left to him to bring into the boat a fish that would surely inspire future stories around the campfire. Up it came to the surface. I managed to grab it and hold it to the floor of the boat, at which time the fish was declared too small to keep. So, back into the water it would go — once I removed the hook. Which was stuck in its mouth. Which was gaping desperately for air. Which caused the whole fish body to convulse. Which made my hand skip and further twist the hook into the poor thing’s jaw/ mouth/lip. By the point, the fish was barely

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS moving and I had a scene that made Saw look like a Disney film. Between the blood and the slime, my brother finally managed to remove the hook and I tossed the little guy back into the lake, whereupon he promptly floated on the surface, having succumbed to my hooking penalty. As the little fish floated, a shadow crossed the boat. That shadow was an eagle, who scooped up the fish with his talons and flew away, without even a thank you. That night, while roasting marshmallows in a campfire at the lake’s edge, I asked my brother if the ducks around us can eat the fluffy white balls of sugar. He thought I was kidding and answered in the affirmative, only to ask what the heck I was doing after I tossed a marshmallow to the ducks. Apparently (and I found some information on this subject later on the Internet), sticky foods like marshmallows and peanut putter can create all sorts of problems with the duck’s bills and throats. So, as a duck grabbed the marsh-

mallow and swam away, attempting to consume the sticky square puffy white thing, I could only imagine my toss leading to duck suffocation. My rampage didn’t end that night, unfortunately. The next day, having packed up and still feeling horrible about the fish and duck, the kids and I set off down Loon Lake Road, heading home. A few hundred feet ahead, there were three birds sitting in the middle of the road. Having always seen birds fly up and out of the way as soon as my vehicle approached, I thought nothing of the feathered trio. Two black bodies with wings did indeed swoop up, across my field of vision and to a tree at the side of the road. The KA-CHUNK! sound and hardy bump under my front tire that followed told me the third bird didn’t take flight. I looked in the rearview mirror to see a horribly wounded pheasant-type bird hobbling madly to get to the side of the road. I didn’t stop. I couldn’t. Images of too much blood and guts and slime and constricting duck throats raced through my mind. I just had to get back to the city. My brother was following about 10 minutes behind and, knowing nothing of my third attack on wildlife, called me when he arrived home in the Lower Mainland. He was leaving Loon Lake, he said, when he came across a wounded bird by the side of the road being pecked at by a crow and being watched by a hawk in a tree. He stopped to scare away the crow, but didn’t know what he could do about the pheasant-type bird. He didn’t have a box in which to place the bird. And, if he did, where would he take it? So, he had to leave my victim to the laws of nature, laws that should have as the eternal first commandment: Thou shalt not allow Foulds to leave the city limits, anywhere, at any time. My apologies to my victims. I promise to limit my fishing to the card game, my ducks to the rubber ones in the tub and my foul to watching baseball. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com chrisfoulds.blogspot.com

A year ago this very week, the price of crude oil on the world market had dipped to about $83 a barrel. As a result, the average priceper-litre at the pumps in Canada sat at about $1.02. Yesterday, the price of crude oil on the world market had dipped to about $83 a barrel. As a result, the average price per litre at the pumps in Canada sat at about $1.25. Huh? How can identical $83-a-barrel prices yield such disparate pump prices in a 12-month span? Calls to various oil-company spokespeople will yield the tried-and-true responses, all of which we can take with a healthy dose of skepticism. They will disavow significant links between pump and barrel prices — unless the pump prices are skyrocketing in conjunction with barrel prices, in which case they will blame the rising price-per-litre on the rising price-per-barrel, which, they will note, is out of their control. They will cite pipeline problems. They will cite refinery capacity. They will cite geopolitical problems in faraway places. What they will not do is simply admit the price-per-litre remains artificially high today (25 per cent higher than one year ago, despite identical barrel prices on the world market) because they wish to keep raking in annual profits by the billions. Profit is not necessarily an evil word, but surely the oil industry can still live like a collective king while treating customers with respect and offering the price of its commodity at a fair price as reflected by world markets. Greed is never good, despite what Gordon Gekko preached.

Put spotlight in side effects of all drugs Editor: My heart goes out to the parents of two little ones in our area who died so soon after birth (‘How did these babies die?’ Aug. 2). What astounds me is the comment quoted from the B.C. Coroners Service — because the baby’s death was deemed a sudden-infant death, it was therefore labelled a natural death. Natural?

Sudden infant death is natural? The authorities say they don’t know what causes it, therefore it must be natural! Since I am not a doctor, I simply present my opinion and something smells rotten in the wood pile. I am glad UBC researcher Barbara Mintzes has the temerity to question the side effects of drugs being prescribed for pregnant mothers.

TALK BACK

May others follow her lead to question the validity of some of the other drugs being foisted — more frequently each year — upon otherwise healthy infants and children. Afraid of something? Take a drug; you’ll find one advertised. It is high time drug side effects are put under the spotlight. Colleen Carbol Kamloops

Q&A WE ASKED Do you think there will be a fall provincial election? SURVEY RESULTS

Memo to Lake: Conditions in B.C. parks atrocious Editor: In light of Environment Minister Terry Lake’s comments about how wonderful our B.C. parks are, I think his idea of roughing it is not finding a mint on the pillow. I doubt Lake and his family have been camping in the last five years. Under the contractor system, the campsites have deteriorated so badly that I do not know where Lake gets the idea we have the best parks in the world. Oregon in particular really kicks our butt when it comes to campsites. I have camped all over B.C. since 1969, and I have found the deterioration so bad that I don’t know how Lake can say something like that. On our latest trips to Clearwater and Mable Lake provincial parks, we found the outhouses were so full and smelled so bad that we were unable to use them. We saw foreign tourists refusing to use them. The roads on the way in had so many potholes it is amazing I do not need new shocks on my vehicle and fifth wheel. The campsites were not cleaned in the seven days we were there. Contractors through to 100 Mile House are definitely not doing their job when it comes to maintaining campsites as well as B.C. Parks employees did. The reservation system eliminates B.C. residents being able to camp in their own parks. Whatever happened to the first-come, first-serve system? It seems to me contractors have taken it on themselves to make the park their own business, not ours. I have spoken to many campers and it seems from talking to them it is getting to be the same all over B.C. Why are we paying taxes for services no longer being provided? I am going to send a copy of this letter to Lake, but am sure it will be filed in the garbage, as seems to be happening with any issue brought forward from the B.C. public. Bill Chapman Kamloops

Looking for a purr-fect ending By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A Kamloops couple is hoping local cat lovers will come to the rescue of a feline family they found on the side of the road this week. Kyle Bade was driving from Paul Lake to Kamloops at about 10 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 7, with his girlfriend and cousin when he spotted something on the road three kilometres east of Highway 5. “I just saw these eyes,” he said. “I thought it was a coyote, but it was too low to the ground.” Bade stopped to investigate and found a grey kitten in the middle of the highway. He looked closer and saw a few more along the side of the road, along with their mother. Bade, along with his girlfriend, Carly Logan, and cousin, Kevin Bruce, began to wrangle the animals. “I was worried about them getting hit by a vehicle,” Bade said. “Or they would have been coyote food.” With the help of the mother cat — since nicknamed “Momma” by Bade and Logan — the trio was able to get all the felines into Bade’s vehicle. “And this is all when we were there with our dog in the truck going nuts,” Bade

said of his pug. Logan sat with the kittens and dog while Bruce held Momma for the ride home. They dropped the animals off at home and then made a quick trip to Safeway to pick up cat food and kitty litter. Bade and Logan set up a litter box and cat food in the bedroom of their Lower Sahali townhouse. Immediately,

Momma and the kittens began eating the food and using the litter box. Logan said she thinks that means they were abandoned. “We think someone had just dropped them off,” she said. “There’s no way they could have walked there from someone’s house.” Bade and Logan are unsure how old the kittens are, but said they

have seen them feeding from Momma sporadically. “They’re eating dry food, too, so they’re probably fine,” Logan said. Bade and Logan are hoping to give the animals away to friends of theirs. Failing that, they plan to put ads seeking cat lovers on websites like Craigslist and Kijiji.

Midnight mugging leads to warning By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloops Mounties are looking for two men after a violent North Shore purse-snatching on Thursday, Aug. 4. RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said a group of three women was walking in the 600-block of Fortune Drive at about 12:30 a.m. when the trio was approached by a pair of men. Police believe the suspects asked the women for the time and possibly directions before one of the men shoved one of the women and grabbed her purse. The two muggers then ran south on Fortune Drive. Patrols by Mounties and a policedog unit were unable to turn up any sign of them. Ward said people should be cautious when walking late at night. “At 12:30 in the morning, you want to make sure you’re basically able to look after yourself,” he said. “Three people should be able to, but this kind of hit-and-run-type stuff is tough to protect yourself from. “But, realistically, this could happen at 12:30 in the afternoon.” Ward said the number of mug-

gings and purse-snatchings in Kamloops are down in 2011 compared to previous years. “A lot of it comes down to the mix of people you’ve got living in the area,” he said. “Last summer, there was a lot of robberies and that kind of thing.” Ward said many of those offenders were caught and thrown in jail, which made the streets safer. “It’s a crime of opportunity,” he said. “So, if the person who’s committing it is in jail, then you see less of it. “It’s great. But these folks can get out of jail and it can go back up.” The suspects in the Tranquille Road mugging are described as men in their 20s or 30s, who may have been on drugs at the time of the incident. One man is believed to be white, standing approximately six feet, with blond hair. He was wearing jeans and a black hoodie, with the hood up. The second man is believed to be shorter and native man. He was also wearing a dark hoodie and jeans. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 250-828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Police say kidnapping tied to drug trade Two men are in custody and two more are being sought by Mounties after what police are describing as a kidnapping and “brutal assault” in Kamloops on Aug. 6. According to Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird, police were called to an area on Mount Lolo Road — off Paul Lake Road north of Kamloops — where a man had shown up at a rural location with serious injuries. “After talking to the male, it was learned he had been held against his will at a residence on Sherwood Drive on the North Shore,” Aird said. “He was taken out to the rural location where he was attacked with what appears to be a bat.

Kamloops (250) 314-0888

The majority of injuries were to his hands and ribs.” Aird said seriouscrime unit investigators were able to identify four suspects, two of whom were arrested shortly thereafter at the Sherwood Drive home. A second male believed to have also been held against his will was found unharmed. Police say the attack

was targeted and linked to the drug trade. Two men were arrested and will appear in court today (Aug. 9), but police are still looking for two more. Yesterday, police said they were closing in on a third suspect. In addition, two vehicles were seized, with one found in Barriere. No names have yet been released.

Mounties seize drugs in North Kamloops

More than $10,000 worth of drugs is off the street after a bust at a North Kamloops house last week. Mounties also seized thousands of dollars in cash and a large haul of stolen goods from the home on Chestnut Avenue. At about 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 3, police entered the home and arrested a man and a woman, both 37 years old and both known to police. Officers seized two ounces of crack cocaine, a half-ounce of heroin and a small amount of mari-

juana, in addition to stolen items, including a generator, firearms and laptop computers. Kamloops RCMP Const. Bernie Ward said drugs and stolen property often go hand-in-hand. “A lot of times, stolen property and drugs are found [together],” he said. “It takes cash and currency of property of value to have an exchange [for drugs] and, often, that’s what we see.” Ward said investigators will now examine the property to determine if it can be returned to its rightful owners. Until then, it cannot be known how many

victims are involved. Kamloops RCMP Cpl. Chris Bonnerholt, with the detachment’s property-crime unit, said the investigation took a few weeks. The man and woman arrested at the home have been released on promises to appear in court at a later date. Police are recommending charges of possession of a controlled substance for the purpose of trafficking, possession of stolen property and possession of the proceeds of crime. Their names have not been released.

More Savings for Canadians Who Make Home Improvements TORONTO — Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Joe Oliver, and Jacques Gourde, Member of Parliament for Lotbinière–Chutes-de-la-Chaudière, announced today that the Harper Government has renewed the popular ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes program. This initiative is helping Canadians save on home improvements and energy costs while protecting the environment.

“Our Government is committed to easing the burden of high energy costs on Canadians and putting more money back in their pockets,” said Minister Oliver. “With this program, Canadians can make their homes more energy-efficient and help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in Canada.” “Canadians can apply today,” said MP Gourde, speaking in Quebec City. “Especially during summer and construction season, we want as many Canadians as possible to take advantage of this grant.” Until March 31, 2012, homeowners may be eligible to receive grants of up to $5,000 to make their homes more energy-efficient. The program could help up to 250,000 Canadian homeowners improve their homes’ energy efficiency and generate as much as $4 billion in economic activity across Canada. Prior to Budget 2011, the Government of Canada provided retrofit incentives to over half a million Canadians. Homeowners who participated in the program saved an average of 20 percent on their energy bills. For more information, visit ecoaction.gc.ca/homes or call 1-800-OCanada (800-622-6232). TTY: 1-800-926-9105. Grant amounts are listed in the “Grant Table for ecoENERGY Retrofit – Homes.” For more information visit www.chbaci.ca

LOCAL NEWS

This weatherman’s report is no surprise By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Though Kamloopsians eagerly anticipated the arrival of beach season, they were more likely to pull out a rain jacket than a bathing suit in the cool, wet days of July. Although the hottest day reached 34 C on the sixth, it was the coolest July since 1999, with a mean temperature of 20.1 C— a degree below the normal of 21 C. July did not deliver the usual period of dry heat Kamloops usually experiences in the summer. A blanket of clouds plagued the city for much of the month, showing little promise of sunshine — and a historic storm later in the month summed it all up. There were only six days when the daytime high reached 30 C or more, half as many as usual. The average daily temperatures were below normal, with the average daily high of 26.9 C below the normal of 28.3 C and the average daily low of 13.2 C below the normal of 13.7 C. The coolest day was 7.2 C overnight on the first of the month. A new record-low maximum was recorded on July 21 at 18.3 C, compared to the previous lowmaximum of 18.9 set in 1965. For more surprises throughout the month, there was 39.2 millimetres of precipitation, 132 per cent of the normal 29.5 millimetres. There was measurable precipitation on 11 days, which is above the normal of nine days. All of the rainy days could not have prepared residents for the thunderstorms that occurred on July 16 and July 26, causing significant precipitation in areas of Kamloops — and even causing flooding on July 26, when more than 10 millimetres of rain poured down in less than an hour. Although it seems odd for July to be so damp, it should come as no surprise after the wet spring. The total year-to-date precipitation is128 per cent of the normal at 195.9 millimetres compared to the usual 152.7 millimetres. Though Kamloopsians were disappointed by missing out on a month of summer, the rest of the south-central Interior suffered the same summer blues. The mean temperature in Prince George was 13.6 C, Quesnel was 14.8 C, Williams Lake was 13.4 and Blue River was 15.0.

WHERE TO WATCH TODAY’S FINALS!

The size of the fight in the dog By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kent Alacida is a microcosm of the Northwest Territories’ (NWT) team at the Western Canada Summer Games in Kamloops. He might even be considered a micromicrocosm. The not-quite-fivefoot point guard is undersized, but his heart is the size of Yellowknife. “He competes like

crazy,” NWT coach Nick Diem said of the 14-year-old. “He’s almost two years younger than everyone else at the tournament and he starts for our team.” Alacida, the northern Canadian squad’s primary ball handler, tallied three points, three rebounds, two steals and five assists in 29 minutes of action against Saskatchewan on Sunday, Aug. 7, at the Tournament Capital Centre. NWT mounted

a late comeback and lost by just two points, 63-61, to Saskatchewan. The smiles on the faces of Northwest Territories’ players when the final buzzer sounded made it tough to tell who had won the matchup. “This is awesome,” Alacida said of participating at the Games. “It’s a great opportunity to match levels with the rest of Canada.” Saskatchewan was expected to win the

game — the prairie province boasts a population about 25 times the size of the Northwest Territories — and it did. The fight displayed by the blue-clad underdogs was inspiring, as is Alacida, who makes up for his diminutive frame in other areas of the game. “I don’t have the height, so I practise my handling because that’s all I got . . . and speed,” the Yellowknife product told KTW. The average spec-

tator might question Diem’s decision to start a player who is often dwarfed by his opposition. “I’ve even had some people say, ‘Why is there a seven-year-old playing?” Diem said. The answer is simple — Alacida deserves to be on the team. “He plays against grown men in the men’s league in Yellowknife, so this is not as hard as what he’s used to,” Diem said. “He’s a great kid.”

Week 1 of the Western Canada Summer Games comes to a close today (Aug. 9) in Kamloops. Athletics finals will be happening at Hillside Stadium from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. The men’s and women’s basketball finals will take place at the Tournament Capital Centre. On the men’s side, the gold-medal matchup gets underway at 6 p.m., with the bronzemedal tilt set for 10:30 a.m. On the women’s side, the gold-medal tilt is scheduled for 3:30 p.m., with the bronzemedal game slated for a 1 p.m. start. Norbrock Stadium will host the men’s baseball final, which is scheduled for a noon start. The bronze medal matchup, also to be played at Norbrock, gets underway at 9 a.m. The men’s and women’s beach volleyball tournaments will finish on Tuesday at Overlander Park.

Both the men’s and women’s gold-medal showdowns are scheduled for 1 p.m., with the bronze-medal games set to go at 10 a.m. Canoe and kayak finals will be held at Shumway Lake from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. The 500-metre mixed war canoe and the 2000-metre men’s and women’s K1, K2, C1 and C2 competitions will be decided, as will the K1 and C1 men’s and women’s 200-metre competitions. The men’s and women’s softball finals will be held at Charles Anderson Stadium. On both the men’s and women’s sides, the gold-medal games are scheduled for 6 p.m. and the bronze-medal matchups are set for 4 p.m. The male and female individual sport relay triathlons will be featured at Lac Le Jeune. The male event gets underway at 11:45 p.m. and the women start at 10:15 a.m. XSee TENNIS A18

ILEY OIEN of Kamloops led Team B.C. to victory in a Western Canada Summer Games women’s basketball game that had at it all. The 14-year-old South Kamloops secondary student was named player of the game in B.C.’s 52-50 win over Saskatchewan on Sunday, Aug. 7, at the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC). Jessica Hanson of Vancouver connected on a deep, baseline jump shot with 7.5 seconds left to put B.C. in front for good.

The Kamloops Broncos recorded their first win of the 2011 British Columbia Football Conference season against the Chilliwack Huskers on Saturday, Aug. 6. Kamloops travelled to Chilliwack and topped the Huskers 37-14. It was the first BCFC win for Broncos’ head coach Duncan Olthuis, who took the reins from outgoing head coach Rob Ellis after the 2010 campaign. Derek Apps led the way for the Broncos, scoring two touchdowns, the first a 65-yard interception return, the second a 100-yard punt return. The defensive back also intercepted a Huskers’ pass in the Broncos’ end zone to prevent a touchdown. Brennan Plante caught a 30-yard pass from quarterback Drew Jacobson, running back Mike McMaster ran one in from eight yards and Sean Poeppel snagged a 35-yard touchdown toss to round out the Broncos’ majors. Kamloops’ kicker Aaron Smit converted on four extra points and one field goal. The Broncos are now 1-1 on the season ahead of this Saturday’s (Aug. 13) matchup on Vancouver Island against the Raiders.

HEN JUSTIN HAYWARD ISN’T TOURING THE WORLD — SOMETHING HE DOES ABOUT SIX MONTHS OF THE YEAR — HE SPENDS HIS DOWNTIME WRITING AND RECORDING MUSIC. In fact, said the singer-songwriter-guitarist for the Moody Blues, “I can’t imagine not doing music.” Perhaps that’s because he’s been doing it for more than four decades and, in the process, created some of the most memorable songs ever recorded. Hayward wrote perhaps his most famous song, Nights in White Satin, when he was just 21. That was 44 years ago. And, although he’s performed the song hundreds of thousands of times, it never gets old. In fact, Hayward said from his home in England, he finds something new with every concert “because the audience is different every night.” “I never get fed up. I get something out of it every night. “It’s nice to think that the music means something to people.” While Nights is perhaps his most famous, it’s not his favourite song to perform. Hayward said he loves the time on stage when the band does I Know You’re Out There Somewhere. Both will be on the set list when the band performs in Kamloops at Interior Savings Centre on Oct. 5. Hayward said the show will touch on every decade, including more recent works. “There’s something for everyone. If you found us early, you’ll know those songs. If you came to us in the 1980s, you’ll know those songs. “There’s always something for an audience member to discover.” The tour starts next month with a couple of dates in the U.S., then it heads north for several weeks of Canadian dates. After that, Hayward said, the band’s heading to New York for some television

shooting and then it’s Down Under for an Australia-New Zealand tour. Then it’s home time and, for Hayward, that means returning to songs he’s working on, recording and debating on what to do with them next. When asked if bandmates Graeme Edge and John Lodge do the same, Hayward laughed. “I don’t know what they do,” he said. Perhaps that’s been part of the secret to the band’s longevity — and ability for the three of them to still like each other offstage, too. “There were the three years we went our own ways,” Hayward said, “but, for me, I did all my growing up in the band and I

needed to just get a life. “But there was nothing said that couldn’t be taken back. “And this is the nicest incarnation of the group that we’ve ever had.” When he says he grew up with the Moody Blues, Hayward’s pretty accurate. He was asked to join the band when he was just 20 — and the offer came about when Hayward was unsuccessful in a bid to join Eric Burdon’s band. Burdon was impressed with the musician, though, and sent his application, along with several others, to the band to consider as a replacement for Denny Laine, who had quit to create the Electric String Band. Hayward had already been performing

with the Marty Wilde Three in England. It was Wilde who encouraged him to write songs, telling Hayward “that if I was going to survive in the business, I had to find my own identity. “He thought I could do it through writing songs and I’m glad I did because it’s how I got the job” with the Moody Blues. And even 40-plus years later, songwriting is work for him, he said. “Easy is not the word,” Hayward said. “Cathartic, fulfilling, those would be the words because, once it’s done, it feels good. “I can’t imagine not doing it.” Tickets for the show are $66.75 and $79.25 and available online at ticketmaster. ca or at the ISC box office.

House band wanted Who needs Canadian Idol? Kamloops is about to get its own musical reality event — and the prize is a contract to be the house band at Cactus Jack’s Saloon until May 2012. Battle for the Saddle-The Ultimate House Band Showdown is open to any B.C. band but the winner has to be available to fulfill house-band requirements for the saloon. Sixteen bands will be chosen from all applicants; they’ll compete over a six-week period, one show night each week with four bands going against each other the first four weeks. The fifth week will see all runners-up given one more chance to compete for the final, which happens during the sixth week. The schedule starts Sept. 14, continues Sept. 22 then every Wednesday until the finale on Oct. 19. In addition to the house-band contract, the winner will receive $2,500. Part of the proceeds will go to a trust fund for local musician Raul Alcantara, who had a debilitating stroke last December. Judges include Korina Felhauer of the Kamloops Night Out website, Sabrina Weeks of Swing Cat Bounce, Doug Perry of Perry Studios, Rob Medvez from the saloon and one more yet to be named. Organizers, which include E3media, Kamloops Night Out, Shots by Rick Photography and GK Sound, are also looking for additional sponsors. To apply, email e3media@hotmail.com.

HOT DEALS from this week’s flyer Jessica Stuart calls her music art pop — a bit jazz, a bit pop, a bit rock. Her band is at Music in the Park on Wednesday, Aug. 10.

Building on a Few musical ideas By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Jessica Stuart had a creative vision — and it wasn’t the one she was overseeing during her time working at a vintage clothing store. It wasn’t in linguistics, which she studied, or in landscape and horticulture, another occupation she tried out. Her muse lay in music and, although she says it’s not always “good for the pocketbook,” the many incarnations of her band “have been good for my piece of mind.” She calls her group the Jessica Stuart Few because it sometimes performs as a duo, most times as a trio and occasionally with even more. It’s the trio that will be at Music in the Park tomorrow (Aug. 10). Her music is always evolving but relies on the kinds of harmonics you’d hear in jazz, with choruses that might encourage you to sing along and grooves that are definitely made for dancing, Stuart said. With one studio-produced recording out — Kid Dream was released earlier this year — the band is working on its second professional release. As part of her creative process, Stuart also made her first video for Kid Dream using a type of animation that required 80 volunteers tracing 2,700 frames onto paper. Stuart said she was hoping they might get 1,000 hits on it the first month — “but we got 5,000 the first week.” To see the video, go online to youtube.com and type in the band’s name.

Camaro lets the sun shine in

I

T SEEMS LIKE A LONG TIME COMING BUT THE CHEVROLET CAMARO CONVERTIBLE HAS FINALLY ARRIVED AND JUST IN TIME FOR SUMMER. With wilder styling than its neo-retro pony car competitors (Dodge Challenger and Ford Mustang), getting the soft top to blend in with the styling is not as easy as you might think — especially when the objective was to mirror the roof lines of the Coupe. What Chevrolet engineers did was borrow some of the features from the Corvette including the same centre latching using the same supplier. The result is a Z-folding structure that goes up and down in 20 seconds. It is weather-tight and has lots of acoustic foam to help keep out noise. The 2011 Camaro Convertible is offered as a V6 and a V8, each of which has two trim levels. Pricing starts at $33,995 for the base 1LT V6 up to $47,835 for the fully loaded 2SS V8 (as tested). While the SS is available with a 6.2-litre overhead-valve V8, power is slightly different depending on transmissions. With the standard six-speed JIM ROBINSON manual, there is 426 horsepower First and 420 pound-feet of torque. DRIVE With the optional six-speed automatic (as tested), it produces 400 horsepower and 410 poundfeet of torque. FYI, the base 3.6-litre V6 in the LT produces 312 horsepower and 278 pound-feet of torque with either the manual or optional automatic. Just to add a little confusion, the V8 with manual is termed the LS3 engine, while the V8 with the automatic is the L99, which is derived from the LS3. The difference is the latter features GM’s active fuelmanagement system. It saves fuel by shutting down half of the engine’s cylinders during certain light-load driving conditions, such as highway cruising. Costing an extra $1,710, the L99 option’s automatic has “Tapshift” sequential manual-shift mode, including paddles on the steering wheel. Fuel consumption the manual is rated at 13.2/8.2/11.0L/100 km city/highway/combined and, for the automatic, 13.3/8.0/10.9L/100 km city/highway/combined. One of the goals of the engineers was to produce a drop-

top that felt as solid on the road as the coupe. With a track as wide as that of the Camaro, it could not have been easy. One noticeable difference is a broad and thick stress bar connecting the two front shock towers. There are also braces for the transmission on the prop shaft tunnel and the V-shaped under body braces fore and aft. Additional safety structural reinforcements are designed to improve noise and vibration characteristics while also contributing to the elimination of cowl/steering wheel shake. They include a hydroformed tube in the A-pillars, an inner reinforcement bracket in the windshield header, a reinforced front-hinge pillar and reinforcements inside the rockers. On the SS, I noticed there was no steering wheel shake and the expansive hood was as flat as wine on a plate. With the LT V6 I briefly sampled, there was minor cowl shake, but only at speed on frost heaved secondary roads. X See CAMARO B6

Camaro a solid cruiser X From B5

The result is a solidfeeling car which GM says has better chassis rigidity than a BMW 3 Series. With a weight distribution of 52/48 front/ rear, handling is good for a car tipping the scales at 1,891 kilograms (4,168 pounds). Part of this is due to a sharp turning circle of 11.5 metres (37.,7 ft) plus a stout suspension system fore and aft, especially the 4.5-link independent rear. The driving route was up and through Ontario cottage country with few other cars on the road and brilliant sun in the sky. I know I’m supposed to be politically green these days but that Big V8 exhaust note at full song was music to my ears. It was a day meant for cruising — which is just perfect in a car like the SS Convertible. But, it is fast too. I didn’t try it but GM quotes a zero to 100 m.p.h. acceleration time of 4.9 seconds for the LS3 and five seconds for the L99. Despite the weight gain, the V8 Convertible has a stopping distance equal to the Coupe of 100 to zero m.p.h. in 36.2 metres (128 feet), thanks to the four-piston fixed Brembo aluminum

front and rear callipers. At normal highway speeds, you never have to lift or brake on a bend in the road and that goes for most curves as the balance of the car makes the most of the nearly equal front and rear weight distribution. Like the coupe, the sills on the convertible are high so you sit down inside the car, rather like being in a fighter plane cockpit. Gauges and controls are intuitive with four secondary gauges mounted down and under the centre stack in a signature-design tip of the hat to the early Camaros. Because the combined OnStar/XM/

AM-FM radio antenna is mounted on the roof of coupe models, it had to be relocated on the convertible. On RS-equipped LT models and SS models, which include a rear spoiler, a small shark fin OnStar/XM antenna is mounted on the deck lid, while the AM/FM radio antenna is hidden inside the rear spoiler. With the top up, visibility is at a premium especially to the rear. A backup proximity sonar is fitted, which helps but, even with the top down, watch out when reversing. My co-driver almost took out the rear bumper backing up at GM’s Oshawa headquarters when he did not see a

long-slung decorative planter. Trunk space is expectedly limited due to the need for somewhere to store the top and folding mechanism. With the top up there is 290 litres (10.25 cubic feet) of cargo space and 220 litres (7.85 cubic feet) with it down. But, who cares? If you need to stow some golf bags, throw them in the back seat and get out there and enjoy the summer we Canadians so sorely crave. And, when you think about it, there aren’t too many ways you can enjoy it more than in a canary yellow Camaro SS drop-top.

EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN

AUTOMARKET

Canada gets its first LEAF Nissan Canada made history when it recently delivered the first all-electric Nissan LEAF in Canada, signaling the arrival of sustainable mobility to the Canadian mass market. PowerStream, the second largest municipally owned electricity distribution company in Ontario, received keys to its two white Nissan LEAFs MY11, at an event at its head office in Vaughan, Ont. Through Model Year 12, Nissan expects to release around 600 Nissan Leaf on the Canadian market. In addition to these MY12 models, Nissan Canada has secured 100 MY11 Nissan LEAFs with 40 allocated to

consumers, ahead of the arrival of MY12 cars which will start to arrive later this year.

To be eligible to reserve a Nissan LEAF, consumers must be registered on nissan.ca/leaf and live within the vicinity of a Nissan LEAF certified dealer. Those meeting these criteria will receive an email in the coming weeks with all the details on how and when to order a Nissan LEAF. Reservations will be limited for MY11 and made on a first-come-firstserved basis.

LOCAL NEWS

Buoy, where did that sandbar come from? Day in the sun ended early for Logan Lake family boating from Kamloops Lake. By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

They’re meant to help guide boats and keep them out of trouble on the water, but said to a Logan Lake family, the buoys along the Thompson River did nothing to prevent them from smashing into a sandbar. Lelonnie Hensens and her family were on a leisurely boat ride from Kamloops Lake up the Thompson River on July 24 when their trip went sideways. On the water, nearing Kamloops, Hensens’ boat hit a 20-foot sandbar — grounding the

vessel and nearly sending several passengers overboard. Hensens herself narrowly avoided disaster when her legs hit a railing keeping her from flying out of the boat. Besides the bruises, the newly christened boat’s motor was completely filled with sand and the vessel needed to be towed to a dock for repairs. Hensens blames her trouble on a lack of attention paid to the buoys by the Thompson Nicola Regional District (TNRD) — the organization that manages the marking system along the waterway.

The TNRD contracts the maintenance work to an independent operator. Hensens said she’s talked to homeowners along the river who have told her there isn’t anyone checking on buoys. “I would like proof of that, I’d like to see something that shows me those things have been checked,” she told KTW. “They should be checking those things every couple of days, not once every year.” The private contractor in charge of the buoy system is confident the markers are being checked on a regular basis.

Andy Philpot said the buoys are required to be checked every month, but he’s out at least every couple of weeks. Philpot said he was out four times in July inspecting the buoy system along the river. Any repairs are also required to be complete as quick as possible. Philpot said the buoys are just aids to navigation. “They’re not there to be fully relied upon for navigation,” he said, adding a lot of people boating don’t have local knowledge of the river, which can also lead to problems. Philpot noted the river is

marked from Kamloops Lake to the Shuswap but from west of the airport, the river is constantly changing. He said two weeks ago the water level was about 17 feet through the entire channel, but suggested that has likely dropped to 12 feet. He did point out a delay in getting the buoys in place because of the delayed snow melt and high water levels late in the spring. The buoy system is usually in place by April, but was held back until June, just before the river peaked in July.

Help Wanted Editor The Merritt Herald, an award-winning twice-weekly newspaper published in the Nicola Valley, is seeking an editor. The editor will manage a newsroom of one reporter and both will be responsible for all aspects of getting the newspaper to press — writing, editing, taking photographs and laying out using InDesign. The successful candidate will be community-oriented and have a serious interest in current events — locally, provincially, nationally and globally. The successful candidate will also be tasked with maintaining the Herald’s standing as the dominant newspaper in Merritt. The ideal candidate will be a self-starter with some experience in journalism, one who works well with others in an office setting, one who thirsts for an opportunity to improve their skills while helping to mentor those around them, one whose copy of CP Style is dog-eared and one who has a passion for new ideas. Qualifications • Proficiency with InDesign and Photoshop are required, as is a background in the community newspaper industry. • Previous experience in the community newspaper industry • Own transportation required. Please apply to: Kelly Hall Thompson River Publications 2090 Granite Ave. Merritt , BC V1K 1B8 Tel: (250) 374-7467 Fax: (250) 374-1033

He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years, Ida, his daughters Sharon (Kevin), Judy (Ron), son David, ¿ve grandchildren and one great granddaughter.

He also enjoyed camping, ¿shing and traveling throughout BC, Alberta, Alaska and the U.S. No formal service by request, please take a moment to reÀect on his life. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoenings.com

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

She is survived by her loving husband Joe Jackson, two daughters, Christine Jackson and Sarah Jackson, her parents Bob and Susann Gordon, sisters Karen Marion, Donna Hambley, and brother Rob Gordon, and their families, as well as many extended family members. Shelly was born Aug 16, 1958 in Port Alberni BC and lived in Kitimat BC where she was a strength and support to many. Shelly was bilingual in French and English and worked as a high school teacher and counsellor, where her passion for people was evident. Join us in a celebration of Shelly’s life on Friday August 12, 2011, 1pm at the Kamloops Free Methodist Church 975 Windbreak St. Kamloops BC, and a remembrance tea to follow at the church. A cremation memorial will also be held at a latter date in Kitimat BC so others can show their support. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Free the Children Foundation www.freethechildren.com

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

One night a man had a dream, He dreamed he was walking along the beach with the Lord. Across the sky flashed scenes from his life. For each scene, he noticed two set of footprints in the sand: one belonging to him, and the other to the Lord. When the last scene of his life flashed before him, he looked back at the footprints in the sand. He noticed that many times along the path of his life there was only one set of footprints. He also noticed that it happened at the very lowest and saddest times in his life. This really bothered him and he questioned the Lord about it. “Lord, you said that once I decided to followed you, you’d walk with me all the way. But I have noticed that during the most troublesome times of life, there is only one set of footprints. I don’t understand why, when I needed you most, you would leave me.” The Lord replied, “My precious, precious child, I love you and I would never leave you. During your times of trial and suffering, when you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you.” Margaret Fishback Powers

The colours of the logo also have distinctive meanings. • The red represents the Canadian mosaic of participating athletes, coaches, officials, artisans, performers and volunteers. • The light blue represents the bright northern sky. • The gold represents the rolling wheat fields of the Prairies and the flame from the Games torch. • The green represents the field of competition for many of the sports that are part of the Games. • The dark blue represents the water that many of the sports need to compete in.

The half Maple Leaf represents the four participating Western Canadian provinces: British Columbia , Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Three festive swoops illustrate the Northern Lights and represent the three northern territories: the Yukon, Northwest Territories and Nunavut. The dark blue ring is the friendly ring of competition that brings the three northern territories and four western provinces together in celebrating young athletes and a variety of cultures.

August 5 – 14, 2011

Celebrating the spirit of youth Chief Shane Gottfriedson stepped to the podium at Interior Savings Centre on Friday night (Aug. 5), resplendent in native headress and bringing greetings from his Tk’emlups Indian Band. Gottfriedson then produced out a plastic baggie and pulled from it his speaking notes because, he told the thousands in attendance, he had just arrived at the arena after paddling in a canoe from Tk’emlups territory. Indeed, Gottfriedson was the second-last Western Canada Summer Games torchbearer on Friday as the flame made its way to ISC for the 2011 Games’ opening ceremony. There, after many words from various politicians and Games officials, and after a series of native-based vignettes focused on sport and youth, the Games torch made its way into the hands of Kelly Smith, a Paralympian who formerly called Kamloops home. Smith wheeled the torch from the east end of the arena, bisecting the athletes from the seven provinces and territories seated on the floor, and arriving at the Games’ cauldron, where he lit the torch to officially start the 10-day event. Smith’s lighting of the cauldron wrapped up a scheduled 90-minute cer-

emony that came in at about 80 minutes — despite starting about 20 minutes later than anticipated. The ceremony actually began as Gottfriedson stepped off the canoe on the beach at Riverside Park, holding the torch aloft as dozens of people cheered him on. The chief then walked the torch through the park and to the rear/east entrance to ISC, while, simultaneously, the athlete march was underway inside the arena. There, athletes from the seven participating provinces and territories — Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Yukon, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and B.C. — were introduced by emcee Larry Read as they walked onto the floor and took their seats, accompanied by the loud cheers of the audience. While Games’ officials were looking at about 1,000 unsold opening-ceremony tickets last week, it appeared there was a rush on tickets in the meantime as the venue had precious few empty seats by the time the festivities began (the upper tiers at ISC were not used). Those who attended were treated to entertainment by Salmon Arm rap group Jimmy Current, the Rube Band, the Kamloops Interior School of Music band, tenor Peter Collins’ rendition of O Canada

and Kate Morgan, the Kamloops teenager who wrote and performed the Games’ official song, You Were Made For This. Between every speech, a group of dancers, ages seven to 19, performed a continuation of vignettes behind a screen and in silhouette, featuring the trickster shape-shifting coyote of native lore, with each vignette representing a different territory and province. GAMES NOTES — Kate Morgan’s link to the Western Canada Summer Games extends beyond writing and performing the 2011 official song, You Were Made For This. The teen was a bronze-medallist in sport canoe at the 2007 Games in Strathcona County, Alta. . . . Environment Minister (and Kamloops-North Thompson Liberal MLA) Terry Lake and Kamloops Mayor Peter Milobar officially greeted Team B.C. as it arrived in the arena . . . Lake spoke on behalf of Sport Minister Ida Chong, who had to miss the opening ceremony to attend a family memorial service . . . Tk’emlups Indian Band Coun. Evelyn Camille was chosen to give the blessing to athletes . . . After Kelly Smith lit the Games cauldron, it was left to Lake and Games’ president Henry Pejril to officially declare a start to the event. Lake deferred to Pejril, citing his four years of hard work, to which Pejril declared: “Let the Games begin!”

Kelly Smith, a Paralympian and former Kamloops residents, was given the honour of being the Games’ final torchbearer. Smith lit the Games Cauldron at the conclusion of Friday’s opening ceremony, signifying the official start to the 10-day sporting event. Jeremy Deutsch/KTW
