Keeping tabs on gangs Police: Kelowna-style carnage unlikely in Kamloops By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

It is very unlikely a brazen daylight mass shooting like the one that shocked Kelowna residents on the weekend would happen in Kamloops. That’s the word from local police in the wake of the gang-related slaying of Jonathan Bacon on Sunday, Aug. 14. “You could never say it would never happen [in Kamloops], but the chances are remote,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. “The likelihood of that repeated type of violence in this or other communities is relatively low.” One man — Bacon, the notorious 30-yearold Abbotsford member of the Red Scorpions gang — was killed and five more were injured in the shooting on Sunday afternoon out-

side a hotel in downtown Kelowna. Witnesses reported seeing a man in a ski-mask with what appeared to be a machine gun shooting at a white Porsche SUV. Also seriously injured

road near Vernon. No arrests had been made as of KTW press time. Learned said such incidents are few and far between — but no community is completely safe.

Paramedics tend to Larry Amero, a member of the White Rock chapter of the Hells Angel. Amero was seriously injured when the Porsche SUV he was in was shot up in Kelowna on Sunday, Aug. 14. Killed in the attack was Red Scorpion gangster Jonathan Bacon. Don Sipos photo

in the attack was Larry Amero, a full-patch member of the Hells Angels’ White Rock chapter. A few hours later, investigators found what is believed to be the suspect vehicle burned beyond recognition on a remote rural

“That type of situation — a very brazen daylight shooting in a very public environment — is something that happens on a rare event,” he said. “I think it’s a bit of a wake-up call for people who feel like they’re immune.

“It underscores the need for every person to be aware of their surroundings.” Learned said Kamloops has managed to avoid much of the gang warfare that has plagued B.C. in recent years, mainly because of efforts by local police. “We have been working extremely hard . . . to keep very close tabs on what’s happening,” he said. “We have groups of people who are loosely affiliated. That’s going to happen in any city. “But those traditional gangs . . . any of those gangs are not established here.” In recent years, affiliates of the Hells Angels, Independent Soldiers, United Nations and Redd Alert gangs have all popped up in Kamloops, but none have apparently been able to establish themselves locally for an extended period.

Victim’s mom will be at inquest, still seeks charges tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Dates have been set for the public inquest into the death of Wilbert Douglas Ross Bartley, but the man’s mother is still petitioning to have charges laid. The B.C. Coroners Service will hold the inquest from May 14 to May 18, 2012, at the Kamloops Law Courts. Bartley, 50 was shot and killed by a Kamloops Mountie on July 30, 2010, when Kamloops RCMP opened fire on an SUV he was driving in the parking lot outside So Espresso Bistro and the Robo Esso station on Tranquille Road.

At some point, two plainclothes Kamloops Mounties pulled an unmarked green minivan in behind the vehicle. Police later said they wanted to speak to him about an ongoing investigation. Bartley backed into the unmarked van, damaging its passenger side. At that point, three shots were fired through the 4Runner’s front windshield. Bartley is believed to have been killed instantly. The 4Runner then accelerated and plowed through the front window of So Espresso Bistro. Bartley, who had a lengthy criminal record, did not have any outstanding warrants or conditions and was not wanted by police for any crime at the time.

Hair-raising cut for charity By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Like many high-school graduates, Katelyn Chenuz had a longstanding goal. It wasn’t to travel, find the perfect job or head to school — she wanted to donate her hair to charity. It’s something she’s wanted to do since she was in kindergarten. “I’m nervous,” Chenuz told KTW minutes before the Monday-afternoon chop at Lansdowne Village. “I couldn’t sleep last night.” Pre-cut — and since she was five — her red hair flowed past her chest. “I’ve had trims, but I’ve never cut it short,” she said. With the help of youth leader Amanda Bartel of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, Chenuz was able to raise about $500 before the big cut.

Her friends and family all pledged her and showed up for the big day. “I like my long hair, but I can cut it,” she said. “It’s something I can do. “My hair will make wigs [for women with cancer. “I think it’ll make some people really happy.” Like many, Chenuz has been impacted by cancer, with family members and friends who have had it. “It makes me sad,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to help.” She said she hopes to inspire people to support the charity Pantene Beautiful Lengths, which collects hair to make wigs for cancer patients. Chenuz collected pledges and handed out frozen treats to those who passed by before sitting down for the big cut. When it came time to measure out a ruler’s length, she looked nervous.

With a couple snips, the braid once attached to her head was in Bartel’s hand. “That was so quick,” Chenuz exclaimed before seeing her 12 inches of unattached hair. “That’s a lot,” she said as she ran her fingers through the shorter style. Within a few moments, Chenuz ran to the window of a nearby shop to check her image in the reflection. “I like it,” she said. “I haven’t had short hair since kindergarten.” The lopped locks will be zipped tightly into a Ziploc bag and sent the charity. As for the thought of someone wearing her hair, Chenuz said: “It’s kinda weird, but it’s a good thing.” For more information on Pantene Beautiful Lengths, go online to pantene.com/en-ca/ beautiful-lengths-cause/Pages/ default.aspx.

Gambling-grant review in Kamloops By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s often the lifeblood of many non-profit organizations — and now, local groups that benefit from gambling grants will get a chance to say how they would like the province to dole out the cash. The Community Gaming Grant Review will be in Kamloops today (Aug. 16) for a forum, part of a 14-city tour initiated last month. The Kamloops Search and Rescue Society (KSR) is one organization that intends to take part in the forum. KSR president Brad Russell

said he wants to make sure there aren’t going to be any unforeseen changes to the grant formula so the organization can budget properly. It received $12,000 from the latest round of grants, released last week. The organization, one of several dozen groups in the region that receives a grant, was previously given $7,000 annually in grants. KSR’s annual budget is $25,000. Other area organizations that benefitted from the recent grants include Kamloops and District Humane Society ($6,250), Clearwater & District Minor

Hockey Association ($20,200), Kamloops River City Racers Speed Skating Club ($9,000) and the Kamloops branch of the St. John Society-B.C. and Yukon ($40,000). The review has several purposes, including to look at the legislation that governs gambling-grant funding, provide options for a multi-year funding model and develop criteria and eligibility for organizations applying for grants. Russell said he hopes the review will also set some type of guideline or priority for who gets funding, noting his organization competes with sports and arts groups. “You can’t really lump

Kamloops Search and Rescue, which is an emergencyresponse service, in with a knitting club and a bingo club,” he said. The forum is open to the public and runs from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Barber Centre at Thompson Rivers University. Presentations will start after 9 a.m., with each group getting about 10 minutes. The forum will be kicked off with an address from Skip Triplett, chairman of the review. This year, the province distributed $135 million in grants for eligible community programs and services.

Miss Canada campaigns against human trafficking This year’s Miss Canada is coming to the Tournament Capital for an important cause. Miss Canada 2011 Tara Teng is in town today (Aug. 16) as part the Ignite the Road to Justice tour to speak out about human trafficking and take part in several related activities. Teng and her team of

anti-human trafficking activists will be holding a concert at the bandshell in Riverside park from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. Teng will also make an appearance at an event at the Calvary Community Church from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Both are open to the public. The tour is being

sponsored in conjunction with Bridge Baptist Church and Kamloops resident Glendene Grant, founder of Mom Against Human

Trafficking. Grant’s daughter Jessie Foster went missing five years ago in Las Vegas in one of the most well-known cases

of suspected human trafficking. For more information, go online to ignitetheroadtojustice. com.

Playing Monopoly with BC Hydro’s golden board

I

T’S A BASIC STRATEGY for the board game Monopoly. If you land on one of the utilities, buy it and reap the steady revenues. Real-world investors follow the same rule. BC Hydro’s debt may be enormous, but it’s one of the safest investments around. The crown jewel of B.C. utilities is such a money machine that it can allow extravagant practices and still deliver some of the cheapest, cleanest, most stable energy in North America. Some of those extravagances were described in a new report on BC Hydro by three senior bureaucrats. Headline items included a 41-percent increase in staff in just four years, lavish management bonuses and union overtime pay and a communications department almost as big as the B.C. government’s own. You won’t find this kind of luxury in private companies that have to compete in today’s ruthless marketplace. And, you won’t learn much about it from listening to B.C.’s political debate, dominated as usual by the NDP’s union-approved talking points. According to those, the only serious problem here is the intrusion of private-power producers onto the turf of this government monopoly cash cow. BC Hydro is only now getting a taste of the business discipline that has been applied to other areas of the provincial government. A case in point is the utility’s 650 staff engineers, part of what the

TOM FLETCHER Our Man In

VICTORIA reviewers termed a “gold standard” corporate culture. Why does BC Hydro have six times as many engineers as the Transportation Ministry, which manages about the same amount of complex construction? According to Energy Minister Rich Coleman, the transportation ministry used to work the same way. Staff engineers would design a new bridge down to the specifications of the last bolt that holds the handrail. Then this design would be put out to tender, with the winning bidder micromanaged at every step. The remaining transportation ministry engineers now speak wistfully of this bygone golden age. Today, they are expected to set cost and performance specifications and let the private sector design and build the bridge to meet those targets. Innovations are thus encouraged, not prevented, and their former colleagues do just fine in the private sector. A brisk pruning — the report recommends reducing total staff to

6,000 from 4,800 — gives Premier Christy Clark what she asked for. An expected 32-per-cent rate increase over three years will be limited to only 16 per cent. And, it leaves BC Hydro’s huge capital works program more or less alone: Rebuilding old dams, preparing for Site C and expanding both the grid and generation capacity. The review team also leaves the smart-meter program alone, finding more evidence it will pay off in savings. The reviewers found BC Hydro’s overtime costs are higher than other electrical utilities and 84 per cent of that is paid to unionized electricians. The top five overtime earners doubled their base salary with overtime pay between $113,000 and $130,000 last year alone. With a smart grid, at least they won’t be collecting so much overtime to drive around searching for downed wires. I suppose it would be nice to have all overtime paid at double-time and 17 to 20 “flex days” that can be taken off or traded for cash. But, other public-sector workers don’t get that. The government milks this cow, too. It overcharges BC Hydro for water use, for one thing. What this overhaul may also lead to is an end to former premier Gordon Campbell’s aggressive climate strategy. That’s a complicated issue that I’ll tackle in a subsequent column. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Kelowna is not exactly the 2011 version of Prohibition-era Chicago, but, for a few shocking minutes on the weekend, the Lake City was the scene of a significant gang hit. Gangster Jonathan Bacon of Abbotsford was slain and White Rock Hells Angel Larry Amero was seriously injured in the gunfire attack outside the Delta Grand Okanagan Hotel. The hit is likely to spark yet another bloody round in B.C.’s gang wars as the various players (Bacon was a Red Scorpion and the Red Scorpions don’t like the United Nations gang, which in turn is not in the good books of the Hells Angels) have fellow gang members seeking revenge. While Bacon and Amero were/ are Lower Mainland-based gangsters, they were in Kelowna to meet about something, perhaps to do so outside the intense scrutiny of the Lower Mainland police agencies. Kamloops RCMP have long held the line on allowing gangs to get a significant foothold here, but there are people in the Tournament Capital with links to various B.C. gangs. While Kamloops is a safe community, gang violence can happen anywhere at any time. Following Sunday’s shooting in Kelowna, various blogs were filled with comments, some speculative, others more on the mark. One posting on a reputable blog claimed the killers of Bacon were going to “lay low” in Kamloops for a while. At this point, there is no way to know whether this is the case, but we agree with local Mounties that similar revenge-type carnage is unlikely to occur on our streets. The caveat is that nothing is impossible. So, as advised by Staff Sgt. Grant Learned, it is never a bad idea to be aware if your surroundings.

The Portraits of Honour tour included this sketch of Master Cpl. Erin Doyle, the Kamloops native who was one of 157 Canadian soldiers to die in Afghanistan.

Tour coverage raised awareness Editor: On behalf of the national association of Kinsmen and our local K-40 Club, we would like to thank you for your kind co-operation in providing publicity for the national Portraits of Honour Tour. KTW’s coverage of this event, especially the front-page story July 22, was very helpful in letting Kamloops know the importance of this tour. The mural was here on July 28 and is a presentation of the facial portraits of all of those we have lost while serving in Afghanistan. The emotions shown, here in Kamloops and across our nation, serves to show the people of Canada care about those in the military. This

applies to all of the missions in which they may be involved. Total coverage from the media was a tribute to our city spirit and an understanding of the importance of this tour to Canada. Kamloops This Week was a very important part of this and, for that, we thank you. For those who were not able to come to Riverside Park on July 28, donations may be made to the Military Families Fund by sending cheques to Kinsmen Canada, 395012 St. NE, Calgary, Alta., T2E 8H9, or to the Master Cpl. Erin Doyle Bursary (for heavy-duty mechanics) at Thompson Rivers University. R.A. (Bob) Iverson president K-40 Club of Kamloops

Editor: My heart bleeds for Amery and Christiane Schultz (‘How did these babies die?� Aug. 2). As the Shultzes are learning, doctors and health services in British Columbia are not accountable for their mistakes. Amery Shultz has a legitimate point to make and I’m more than sure he has written to every government official you can think of, only to have his words fall on deaf ears, Having done this for another cause, I found that it’s a pass-the-buck world we’re living in and nobody is really interested in your problems, your personal loss or the reason for it. The College of Physicians and Surgeons of B.C. is really no help in this area, either, and, all too often, people in the medical industry get off scotfree, instead of losing their medical licence or the right to practise. Doctors and others in the health-care industry in this province get paid big bucks for the job they do, but can quickly duck out of the picture when the crud hits the fan. The same goes for drug companies and those who promote them. Anybody out there remember a drug called Thalidomide? The three words you’ll never hear from the health-care industry are “We screwed up.� John Woods Logan Lake AY TUUEESSDDDA

Train dispute still off-track Rocky Mountaineer and its locked-out onboard attendants still aren’t talking By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

For nearly two months, onboard attendants for the Rocky Mountaineer train have been locked out — and it doesn’t appear the labour dispute is going to end any time soon. Both sides in the dispute haven’t met in weeks and no talks or negotiations are planned. “I would characterize the situation as we’re currently at an impasse,” said Ian Robertson, Rocky Mountaineer’s executive director of corporate communications. He noted the company put forward a contract offer to employees a few weeks ago, but it was rejected. Teamsters Union Local 31, which represents the 108 lockedout attendants, claims Rocky Mountaineer is responsible for dragging out the dispute. “If they want us, they can find us and easily put an end to

this,” said Rod Blackburn, secretary treasurer of the union. The onboard attendants have been locked out since June 22, after serving strike notice just a few days earlier. The collective agreement ended earlier this year. “We felt we had no other option but to lock out the onboard attendants,” Robertson said. A conciliator has been called in to help the two sides reach an agreement. In the meantime, Rocky Mountaineer has hired replacement workers to keep the service rolling smoothly. Blackburn said the company is trying to break the union and make it “disappear. He said the biggest stumbling block in reaching an agreement, from the union’s perspective, is overtime, with employees asking for overtime to kick in after 11 hours of work. Under the old deal, overtime was based on an averaging of hours over an eight-week period.

Blackburn said some attendants could work 16 hours in a day, but still not qualify for overtime. The union has also accused Rocky Mountaineer of dirty tactics, including spying on picketing workers, videotaping their activities and following them to a rally at city hall, far away from the closest trains, allegations Rocky Mountaineer denies. Robertson said the company has a responsibilty to maintain the safety of passengers and employees and ensure workers are picketing in a legal way. He said Rocky Mountaineer has hired security to monitor picket activities. The company has asked the B.C. Supreme Court to issue an injunction against the union picketing at Rocky Mountaineer’s stations and offices. Last week, pickets converged in Kamloops. The court has yet to make a decision on the company’s request.

CORN ROAST

Saw thief, took action A man who tried to steal two saws from a North Kamloops garage got more than he bargained for when he was apprehended by the garage owner and his brother. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said police were called to the 200block of Vernon Avenue at 1:20 a.m. on Monday, Aug. 15, for a reported break-and-enter in progress. Officers arrived to find a 35-year-old man being held by the two brothers. Police believe the suspect entered the garage twice — first taking a skill saw and then coming back for a chainsaw. Learned cautioned homeowners against apprehending burglars. “For a citizen, you have the absolute legal right to defend your property,” he said. “But, it’s not advisable. It’s not the safest thing to do.” The suspect attempted to fight off his captors and was injured in the process, receiving treatment from paramedics following his arrest. Learned said both stolen saws were recovered and police are recommending a charge of break-and-enter.

Suicidal man Tasered A Kamloops man police believe was attempting to commit “suicide by cop” was jolted by a Taser on the weekend. Learned said police received a report of a suicidal 50-year-old man on the East TransCanada Highway at 10:20 p.m. on Friday, Aug. 12. The man told 911 operators he had a knife to his throat and was going to stab himself in the stomach. When Mounties arrived, Learned said, the man squared off with officers, knife in hand. Police had their guns drawn, while one Mountie shot the man with a Taser. He was then taken

said police were called to a home in the 200block of Juniper Avenue at 11:30 p.m. on Friday for a reported break-in. “The homeowners were away, but had left a friend in the basement apartment to watch the place,” he said. “It’s that person who called police after hearing noises of items being moved in the upper-level residence.”

POLICE BEAT into custody and transported to Royal Inland Hospital for a psychiatric evaluation. Learned said police take suicidal calls very seriously. “A suicidal person is a homicidal person,” he said. “It’s someone who has turned their anger inward rather than outward, but that can change in a heartbeat.”

Arrest in mugging One man is in custody after a violent downtown mugging last week. Police say a 59-yearold woman was walking in the alley behind McDonald’s on Victoria Street in downtown Kamloops at 2:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 12, when she was attacked by a man. The suspect, a 26-year-old native man, allegedly kneed the woman in the crotch five times before taking her jewelry. He was arrested a short time later and a subsequent search turned up jewelry matching the items stolen. Police believe the same man might be responsible for an earlier attempted mugging in the same area. The investigation is ongoing.

Footsteps lead to thief A 26-year-old man will likely face breakand-enter and theft charges after Mounties busted a burglary in progress on Friday night (Aug. 13). Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird

DVDs were target of Juniper burglar XFrom A11

Police arrived to see a light on in the home’s living room and a man apparently removing DVDs from a shelf. Investigators believe the man had entered the home through a back door. The suspect has no criminal record, but is known to police. Aird said he has been released from custody on a number of conditions.

Unlucky splashdown No one was injured when a truck and boat trailer were swept away in the South Thompson River on the weekend. Kamloops Mounties were called to the Valleyview boat launch at 7 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 13, after a truck and trailer rolled into the river. “The truck and boat trailer were backed up on the boat launch as the operators were

POLICE BEAT preparing to load their boat,” said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird. “The truck was a standard, was in gear, engine off and emergency brake on when it began to roll backwards into the South Thompson River.” No one was inside the truck at the time and the boaters were able to untie their boat. The truck and trailer were swept about 100 feet downstream.

Intentional crash wise The driver of an industrial vacuum truck suffered minor injuries after intentionally driving his rig into a cut bank off Rose Hill Road on Friday, Aug. 12. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said the truck driver was headed down the

hill just after 1 p.m. when he noticed his brakes were failing. “He felt he had to take action before reaching the more densely populated Valleyview area and used the cut bank to stop the truck, crashing into it,” he said. “There is no doubt his quick thinking and evasive action prevented injuries further down the roadway.” Aird said the driver suffered cuts and abrasions. The truck was a write-off.

crews were called to Valleyview Drive near Valleyview secondary school just before 1 p.m. for a reported collision between a car and a street sweeper. Investigators arrived to find the car on its roof, with extensive damage. Police believe the driver of the car couldn’t see the city vehicle because of a large cloud of dust created by its moving sweepers. The car struck the street sweeper and flipped onto its roof. The driver was uninjured and no charges are being considered.

Don’t make hot dogs Swept into a crash A Kamloops driver was lucky to escape injury after a spectacular collision with a street sweeper in Valleyview on Friday, Aug. 12. Emergency

Kamloops RCMP are getting several reports daily of dogs being left in vehicles, with Mounties, city bylaws officers and SPCA staff called to attend each of these calls to check on the

dogs’ health. Staff Sgt. Doug Aird said it is better to leave Fido at home, rather than take him on that shopping trip during this hot stretch of weather. “These animals heat up very quickly and the temperatures in closed vehicles can reach 20 to 30 degrees [C] above the ambient air very quickly,” Aird said. In several cases, Aird said, police have come close to breaking windows to rescue a pet in a vehicle.

Dallas fence puts neighbours at odds By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

If you live in Dallas, your perspective on how much access people should have to get to the river depends on what side of the fence you sit. But, for city council, there should be no fence at all and it ordered a pair of homeowners to take down a gate they erected on city property. Two sides in an ongoing dispute over access to the river were in city council chambers on Aug. 9 to plead their case to local politicians. Curtis Schlosser owns a property on Urban Road and he and his neighbour put up a fence in April to block public access to a path that leads to the Thompson River. The homeowners said in the last few years they’ve been the victims of break-ins and vandalism, and have seen drug dealers in the area. They have called the police five times in the last couple of years. “I don’t think we should have to be held at gunpoint in our own home,” Schlosser told council. He asked the city to consider keeping a gate in place that would be locked at night, but still provide access for residents during the day.

Sixty residents in the area signed a petition asking the city to take down the fence and free up the access completely. Mary Potestio, who led the petition effort, said she’s lived in the area for more than 30 years and has never seen the kind of trouble described by Schlosser. She took exception to the characterization of the neighbourhood and questioned why it has become an issue after all these years. “We’re a really conscientious neighbourhood,” she said. City staff told council part of the creation of the subdivision at the time was to require public access to the river every 200 metres. There are some 100 similar type of access points to the river around Kamloops. In the end, council asked staff to work with both sides to come up with a compromise. Mayor Peter Milobar called the issue tough, but said he couldn’t support a private gate. He suggested the two sides have a starting point in that they agree they want the public to have access to the river and they don’t want people in the area for nefarious reasons.

Healthy Landscapes, Healthy Living Pest Treatment Options Have a landscape you can feel good about: Preventing pests initially is the best way to maintain plant health. However, pests and plant diseases do exist and sometimes need to be managed. Choose pest control methods that are least hazardous. Try the following strategies: Companion Planting Techniques to Manage Pests in Your Landscape Use host companion plants like Nasturtiums and small flowered plants to attract beneficial insects. Use companion plants as traps to distract or draw pests away. Rose gardeners use Geraniums. Use repellent companion plants like Marigolds to drive pests away.

. . . .. .. .. .

Other Alternatives Replace pest-prone plants with pest-resistant varieties. Prune out infestations. Install pest barriers and sticky traps. Wash aphids and spider mites off your plants with a strong stream of water. Try a Btk spray (natural occurring bacteria) for caterpillar pests. Buy ladybugs to prey on pests like aphids, spider mites, mealybugs and other pests. Try a vinegar (acetic acid) spray for weeds in patios, pathways, and sidewalks.

Blazers join Team Recchi By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Royal Inland Hospital Foundation is hoping Kamloops Blazers fans will help push them past their goal of $3-million to build a new intensivecare unit. Fundraising ambassador Mark Recchi, three-time Stanley Cup champion and coowner of the Blazers, spoke to reporters at Interior Savings Centre on Friday, Aug. 12, about the new partnership between the hockey club and the RIH Foundation. During home games throughout the 20112012 Western Hockey League season, fans will be reminded after each Blazer goal that they can text the word ‘Mark’ to 30333 to donate $5 to the RIH Foundation. “Obviously, grow-

ing up in Kamloops and being born in the hospital there, it’s very special to try and help,” Recchi said. “This is a great honour. It’s something very special and near to my heart.” Dave Chyzowski, the Blazers’ director of sales and marketing, said the organization is proud to be involved with Team Recchi. “We are extremely excited,” he said. “We’ve put together a pretty cool little program. “Hopefully, we score lots of goals this year.” Recchi also unveiled the latest fundraising totals, noting Team Recchi efforts have so far raised more than $2 million — leaving $916,993 to go. “The community’s jumped on board and it’s just been wonderful,” Chyzowski said.

“It’s just a pleasure and an honour to be a part of it.” The Blazers join Telus, Zimmer Wheaton, Aberdeen Mall and the Iccha/ Wish Fund as contributing sponsors for the Mark Recchi 365 Challenge. There is already a text-to-donate aspect to the challenge, which was unveiled earlier

this year Donors can text ‘RIHF’ to 30333 to give $10 to the foundation. Recchi’s involvement with the RIH Foundation’s fundraising was announced in February, with the goal of raising $3-million to help the hospital complete its $11-million ICU renovations.

K

AMLOOPS product Ashley Shannik, an assistant coach with Team B.C.’s female volleyball team at the Western Canada Summer Games, was brimming with excitement after her squad won gold on Sunday, Aug. 14, at the Tournament Capital Centre (TCC). “This is amazing,”

Shannik said after B.C. topped Manitoba in four sets (27-29, 25-18, 25-23, 25-15). “It’s the end of six weeks of intense training. We’ve essentially become a family together.” B.C. went 4-1 in round-robin play, getting the better of Northwest Territories, Saskatchewan, Yukon and Alberta, and losing in five sets to Manitoba. Revenge was sweet for Shannik, a former

athlete at Thompson Rivers University. “I think this was their best game of the tournament so far,” Shannik said of B.C.’s performance on Sunday. “They’ve trained hard for this and it’s well-deserved.” A fired-up crowd inside the TCC helped provide a memorable atmosphere for all of Sunday’s bronze- and gold-medal volleyball matchups. Good-spirited —

and sometimes shirtless — Manitobans paraded in front of the bleachers, encouraging their team throughout the gold-medal tilt, and B.C.’s fans answered with chants of their own. Kamloops product Matt Lofgren, who won bronze with B.C.’s male volleyball team at the Games, was among the rabid supporters in the crowd for the women’s final. “I’ve been on the other side of it,”

Lofgren said. “When they’re cheering for us, it gets us so pumped up. “It motivates you, it excites you and it gets you in the moment.” Shannik will not soon forget the experience of coaching in a gold-medal match in her hometown. “You couldn’t ask for anything more from a player’s perspective or from a coach’s perspective,” Shannik said. “It was an amazing experience.”

Team B.C. received a major boost from Kamloops’ athletes at the Western Canada Summer Games, which wrapped up on Sunday, Aug. 14, in the River City. Kamloops’ athletes won 27 medals at the Games, 26 of those coming in Week 1. Brook McLean, Keiffer Johnson and Zach Morgan combined for 19 medals in rowing competition at Shumway Lake. McLean won two gold, two silver and three bronze; Johnson won four bronze and three silver; and Morgan won four bronze and one silver. Alizé PerriardAbdoh and Tamara Ghering earned four medals in wrestling competition. Perriard-Abdoh, 15, won gold and Ghering, 14, earned silver in individual competition at McArthur Island Sports Centre. The duo also won

bronze in the female team competition. Riley Oien of B.C.’s female basketball team earned a gold medal, while Joe Davis won gold with B.C.’s male basketball squad. Alden Smith won silver with B.C.’s men’s baseball team. Matt Lofgren of B.C.’s men’s volleyball team helped his squad to a bronze medal. He was the only athlete from Kamloops to medal in Week 2 of the Games. Three coaches from Kamloops earned medals at the Games. Pat Hennelly, head coach of B.C.’s men’s volleyball team, and Drew Venables, an assistant to Hennelly, won bronze medals on Sunday at the Tournament Capital Centre.

Wenger tests her endurance limits

J

UST WHEN I finished saying I’d rather crawl across a finish line than have the letters DNF (did not finish) behind my name, fate taught me a lesson. After 438 kilometres of road cycling with my husband, Chris, from Banff to Jasper, and part-way back, one of the biggest descents became my breaking point. Road tires on slippery roads aren’t the best for traction and, at 7 a.m., 26 hours into the ride, with only four hours of sleep through the night, my husband and I decided we’d tortured ourselves enough. The last 162 kilometres would have

SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS taken us six or eight more hours and that seemed like a brick wall in my mind, especially with the rain we’d already endured and more rain on the way. Could I have done it? Physically, yes. Mentally? No. For one of the first times in my endurance-racing experience, the mental side let me down.

I forgot how much the elevation difference affects my asthma and I found myself gasping up the hills, even in the first two hours of the ride. The most startling result was the drowsy feeling that resulted, I’m assuming, from the lack of oxygen. Even with a cocktail of cola, Red Bull, caffeine pills and chocolate-covered coffee beans, I was finding myself drifting across the white line. Falling asleep on a road bike, averaging 25 to 30 kilometres per hour, is not a safe prospect. The brutal climbs were killing me. Chris was leaving me behind. My hands were freezing. I even

cried a couple of times (once early on when I rode by my inlaws and my son cheering by the side of the road). I just don’t do that during a race. I understand now when it’s OK to admit it’s not your day and pull the pin and save it for another time. I’m still trying to decide if going beyond 400 kilometres straight through on my bike is pushing the limit of enjoyment. I’m familiar with the definition of “sufferfest”, but I’m not sure if I’m willing to expand my knowledge of that mental and physical state of being. Maybe I’ve reached the limit of my endurance on the bike. Maybe the 600- and

1200-kilometre treks are just beyond what I’m willing to subject myself to. Or, maybe I just need a different day on a different road with a different state of mind.

Looking for a job that doesn’t bite? Research has shown that people who walk approximately 20-25 miles per week outlive those who don’t.

B.C. finishes on top at Kamloops’ Games The biggest winner at the Western Canada Summer Games (WCSG), which wrapped up in Kamloops on Sunday, Aug. 14, was unquestionably Team B.C. B.C. finished atop

the WCSG standings with 261 medals, 130 of them gold, 68 silver and 63 bronze. Alberta finished second with 232 medals, 53 gold and 99 silver, while Saskatchewan wound up third with 133 medals,

45 gold and 41 silver. Manitoba won 115 medals, 22 of them gold and 40 silver, to finish fourth. Northwest Territories, with three medals, one silver and two bronze, and

Nunavut, with two bronze medals, round out the standings. Yukon Territory did not win a medal. B.C. has finished atop the medal standings at every WCSG, starting with the first

RiverDogs need cash flow The midget AAA Kamloops Riverdogs are struggling to find funding for a trip to Victoria, where the squad will compete in the Western Canadian Championship from Aug. 24 to Aug. 28. The Dogs, who won the B.C. Minor Baseball Association midget AAA championship on July 31 in Kamloops, are sending 21 people — 18 players and three coaches — to Victoria. A media release said the team needs about $10,000 for the trip to cover ferry, hotel, transportation and uniform costs. A letter was sent to Kamloops businesses earlier this month, but the squad had only raised about $1,500 as of Monday, Aug. 8. Anyone who is able to pitch in can call the Dogs’ head coach Sean Wandler at 250-5743990, Krista Halland at 250-319-0229 or Janet Gilfillan at 250-3193864.

Broncos lose, drop to 1-2 on season The Kamloops Broncos lost 60-7 to the Raiders on Vancouver Island on Saturday, Aug. 13. Quarterback Drew Jacobson’s 20-yard touchdown pass to Brennan Plante in the fourth quarter was the

Broncos’ only touchdown of the game. The loss moves Kamloops’ record to 1-2 ahead of Saturday’s (Aug. 20) clash with the Langley Rams (0-3) at Hillside Stadium. That game gets underway at 7 p.m. If the Broncos hope to make the British Columbia Football Conference (BCFC) playoffs for the first time in franchise history, they cannot afford a loss on

Saturday. The Raiders and the Okanagan Sun sit tied atop the BCFC standings after Week 3. The Westshore Rebels of Victoria are in second place with a 2-1 record. The Broncos are in third place, ahead of the Rams and Chilliwack Huskers, both of whom are winless on the season.

Rivershore set to host B.C.’s best pros The PGA of B.C. Championship will be hosted at Rivershore Estate and Golf Links from Monday, Aug. 22, to Wednesday, Aug. 24. Professional golfers

from across the province will gather at the tournament, which will feature several local pros, including Brad Clapp, Shannon McGeady and Michael Chmilar of Sun Rivers Golf Resort. Shawn Fagan and Chris Power of Rivershore are also expected to compete. Brynn Parry from Seymour Creek Golf Centre in North Vancouver is likely the man to beat. He is the No. 1-ranked player in the Canadian Professional Golfers’ Association. Round 1’s action tees off at 1 p.m. on Monday.

Games in 1975. The WCSG trophy, which goes to the team with the most points during the competition, was also won by B.C. B.C. had 213 points and Alberta was a distant second with 187.

A Games release explained the points system: “At the conclusion of every sport in the Games, each province/territory was ranked according to a system outlined in the sport’s technical pack-

age. Games Trophy Points are then awarded. When all the sports are complete, the points for each province/territory are added together. The team having the highest point total wins the trophy.”

B.C. settles for bronze By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

EAM B.C. men’s volleyball head coach Pat Hennelly wanted gold, but won bronze after a less-than-excellent round-robin performance left his squad in a battle for third place. B.C. knocked off Saskatchewan in three sets (25-13, 25-18, 25-17) in the bronzemedal match at the Tournament Capital Centre on Sunday, Aug. 14. “It’s unfortunate we didn’t get a chance in a playoff round,” said Hennelly, head coach of the Thompson Rivers University WolfPack men’s volleyball squad. “The format of the tournament is the way it is and I think we

would have had shot at a different colour [medal], but Day 2 was the crucial day and we couldn’t pull together our best volleyball.” B.C. lost to Alberta and Manitoba on Day 2 (Friday, Aug. 12), and finished the round robin with a 2-2 record — not good enough to secure a spot in Sunday’s goldmedal showdown. Alberta topped Manitoba to win the gold medal on Sunday at the TCC. B.C.’s wins in the round-robin came against Yukon and Saskatchewan. Hennelly was pleased with the play of Team B.C. members Brad Gunter and Nic Balasz, both of whom will start their careers with the Pack in the fall. “Nic played well

in the bronze-medal game and Brad, in the Manitoba match, proved he was one of the best, if not the best, player in this tournament.” Kamloops product Matt Lofgren, a Sa-Hali secondary graduate, also had a strong tournament for B.C., Hennelly said. Drew Venables of Kamloops was an assistant to Hennelly on the men’s volleyball squad. The Pack’s bench boss, while not thrilled with bronze, is proud to have coached B.C. at the Games in his hometown. “I saw lots of people from Kamloops in the crowd and lots of people I know spent time volunteering,” he said. “That’s what these Games were all about. “Hopefully, it brings the city together.”

Spence narrowly misses medalling Tori Spence of Team B.C. had strong performances in the cycling and mountain biking events at the Western Canada Summer Games, but was unable to win a medal. Spence, with a time of 1:16:45.3, finished fifth in the cross-coun-

try mountain biking race at the Kamloops Bike Ranch in Valleyview on Sunday, Aug. 14. Anna Schappert of Manitoba won gold with a time of 1:09:20.1, while B.C.’s Amanda Wakeling won bronze, finishing the race in 1:12:41.4.

Spence placed fourth in both the road race and time trial portions of the cycling event at the Games. In the 80-kilometre road race, which was held on Dallas Drive on Friday, Aug. 12, Spence crossed the finish line in 2:37:29.20, less than a second

behind first-place finisher Schappert (2:37:28.40). In the time trial event on Thursday, Aug. 11, Spence finished a 14-kilometre trek on Dallas Drive in 23:04.40. Caeli Barron of Alberta won the race with a time of 22:02.8.

Singing the praises of theatre camp Young actors rehearsing for The Emperor’s New Clothes By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE CURTAINS ARE DRAWN. Soon, there will be music as students at the Stage One theatre camp rehearse this summer’s production, The Emperor’s New Clothes. The production will stay true to the traditional story. “It’s the classic story of a man who’s greedy,” co-director Stephen Sawka explained. “He learns that having material goods isn’t the way to run his life.” “It’s a well-written play.” Terri Runnalls, co-director with Sawka, said the play is also adult-appropriate. “While it’s a play done by children, it’s mature,” she said. This is the first time the camp has tackled a play with musical numbers in its almost 20 years of existence. The directors said students weren’t bothered by the idea of singing and dancing and they are confident the kids will pull it off. “They’re adaptable,” Sawka said. There’s a core group of students who have gone to the annual camp in the past and that is something Runnalls said they can build on with the production. Twelve of the 20 students are returning performers. “That speaks to what they learn and to the fun,” Runnalls said. Sawka has been with the camp for two years and said for him, “it’s interesting to see how kids have grown and changed.” The musical components are a fun new challenge for the students, but also for Sawka and Runnalls. “It makes the show a little more exciting,” Sawka said. The new element adds more work but, for the students, practising at home after camp hours is nothing new. “The kids are here because they want to be,” Sawka said. In the two-week camp, students receive their scripts at the beginning of the first week and perform for audiences two

BACK TO SCHOOL

Worried about school year? Help is a call away

T

HROUGHOUT the summer, Kids Help Phone counsellors often hear from children who have imagined scenarios about what the coming school year will be like. Young students who are transitioning into middle or high school sometimes fear being targeted by bullies or cyberbullies, or that their new school will be violent. They also sometimes fear their peers will pressure them to do drugs. Often, these worries are based on things kids have heard in the media or from older siblings who are trying to scare them. While some kids have big fears about going back to school, others have big hopes. To a kid who’s been bullied, moving on to a new school might mean that old problems will disappear. To another kid, a new

The pressure to perform, to succeed against all odds, to make the right choices, to save face or to prove their worth in the eyes of others are common reasons kids and teens reach out to us.

grade or a fresh wardrobe might mean increased popularity. But, after the first few weeks of school pass, kids whose high expectations haven’t materialized start to crash as a new reality sets in.

Helping kids prepare for going back to school is about helping them to build realistic expectations. “A kid’s biggest hope or worst fear probably won’t come true,” said Alain Johnson, clini-

cal director of Frenchlanguage services at Kids Help Phone. “What is their Plan B? How do they grasp reality? On what grounds are these fears based?” Evidence tells us wellbeing is becoming more

Tips for parents Johnson said parents should first ask the question, “Is back to school a problem for my kid or not?” Johnson and other Kids Help Phone professionals are available to talk about what parents can watch for if their children are worried about going back to school, and how to help build realistic expectations for the start of the school year.

Send them to class with a healthy breakfast Experts worldwide agree breakfast is the most important meal of the day — for kids and adults alike. Unfortunately for parents, some children just don’t see it that way. Whether it’s the taste or that they’re just not hungry, fussy eaters can be hard to please first thing in the morning. Regardless, it’s important kids consume a well-balanced and nutritious meal, especially as they go back to school. Since mornings can be hectic, serving ready-to-eat cereal is a great option for many parents as

as sliced bananas, strawberries and apples. Let them name it and post the “recipe” on the fridge so they feel as though they’ve created something special and unique. 2. Let them choose the cereal: Kids will often eat what they have had a say in choosing, so give them an option of a few selections at the grocery store. There are plenty of options that are fun and delicious, while also being low in fat and nutrient dense, with many essential vitamins and minerals such iron, B vitamins and zinc. 3. Dress up the table:

it’s quick, simple and they can feel confident their kids are getting the important nutrients and the energy they need for the day. More information about the nutritional benefits of choosing cereal can be found online at Kellogg’s website at loveyourcereal.ca. The following are a few tips on how to jazz up your child’s breakfast cereal so they will actually look forward to eating in the morning and, hopefully, develop a life-long habit. 1. Top it up: Give them the option of creating their own special recipes with toppings such

Serving cereal in colourful or patterned bowls, with a fun spoon and placemat, just might do the trick. Your child might make the association between breakfast and play time if they have visual stimulation that lets their imagination run wild. 4. Join them: Kids will often mimic what their parents are doing so they feel “grown-up”. So, if everyone at the table is eating the same cereal, including big brothers and sisters, they are more likely to get on board. newscanada.com

My 9 yr old son started going to Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts almost 6 months ago. He absolutely loves it! The instructors are so good with kids. Not only do they get great martial arts training, they get life lessons. The instructors reinforce attitude, respect and are so motivational. I think it’s great. I can honestly say that having my son join Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts has been the best experience.  It has helped him be less shy and more confident.  He is very proud of his achievements, it’s been a huge boost to his self-esteem. I know he will continue to train for many years to come. It is worth every penny and I highly recommend Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts.

Subaru raises the core value bar with the 2012 Impreza

P

ITY POOR SUBARU. They have a fine new car in the 2012 Impreza compact but, due to the Japanese earthquake and tsunami, production is still hobbled by damage done to some if its parts suppliers, meaning cars won’t start arriving here in quantity until October. It may be worth the wait.

JIM ROBINSON First DRIVE The Impreza has been around since 1992, when it replaced the

much-loved Loyale. In fact, during the press introduction held in Victoria for the new, fourth-generation Impreza, I saw three Loyales, all in great condition. Subaru is first and foremost an engineering company. Like Porsche, it has kept its core values, which it keeps improving and refining. People in the know

buy Subarus because they are robust and reliable. But, with the new Impreza, Subaru wants to include fun to drive

in the mix. In fact, Subaru’s brand statement is “confidence in motion.” The new Impreza will be aimed at buyers who appreciate allwheel-drive and want crisp handling in all conditions — but not at Euro sports-sedan prices. I’ve known the people at Subaru for more than 25 years, since they opened Canadian offices in Mississauga, and, with the exception of the ultra-niche WRX STI, fun to drive was not something discussed a lot. It was all about allwheel-drive, value for the money and durability, qualities all Subarus, then and now, have had in spades. I would love to comment on the riding and handling, but driving impressions are embargoed until Ocotber. However, I can’t

Subaru Impreza 2012 at a glance Body style: Compact four-door sedan/fivedoor hatchback. Drive method: Front-engine, all-wheel-drive. Engine: 2.0-litre, horizontally opposed DOHC four-cylinder (148 hp, 145 lb/ft). FUEL ECONOMY: With CVT, 7.5/5.5L/100 km city/highway. Price: Not available. Webtsite: subaru.ca. wait that long to tell you about the rest of the car. It starts with a new engine, a 2.0-litre DOHC producing 148 horsepower and 145 pound-feet of torque. “New” is a relative term for this powerplant. In essence, it is a still a horizontally opposed or “boxer” four-cylinder, a core technology of Subaru that goes back in a straight line to the GL/ DL in 1963. However, twin overhead camshafts replace the singles in the older engine and much of the interior architecture is

improved. The same core-value concept goes for the subaru symmetrical all-wheel-drive system that is standard on every model made. Subaru has been refining its patented system for some 30 years to the point it is one of the best in the world. One of the reasons it is so good is the crankshaft of the engine is in a straight line to the transfer case and the front and rear wheels. X See SUBARU B11

AUTOMARKET Subaru proud of safety pick record EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN

With the windshield moved forward by 200 millimetres, engineers were able to make the front doors 125 millimetres wider and the rear doors wider by 480 millimetres. Making entry and exit easier is a 20-,iollimetres lowering of the doorsills. Trunk space is also enlarged, the sedan, for instance having a completely flat cargo floor even with the rear 60/40 split/fold seats folded. Big gains were made in the area of chassis rigidity. Using more highstrength steel, bending stiffness is up 25 per cent. In a rollover, the new Impreza can support four times its own weight on the roof. There are six main airbags, with a seventh for the driver’s knees. All the latest safety and driver aids are

there, like electronic stability control, ABS, traction control, brake assist and brake override. Subaru is proud of the fact every one of its models is listed as a Top Safety Pick by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2012 Impreza will be available in four trim levels, the 2.0i, 2.0i Touring, 2.0i Sport and 2.0i Limited. Pricing will not be announced until October. With the current base Impreza at $20,995, expect pricing to remain pretty well constant. All Imprezas get liberal use of soft-touch interior materials that were confined to armrests on the outgoing model. Other standard equipment includes heated body-colour outside mirrors, power

ing which wheels are getting the torque and how much. It even shows the front wheels turning — very cool.

Subaru Canada is aiming for 33,000 sales in 2013. With the new Impreza, they are well on track to get there.

Subaru Canada is having a good year. In fact, year-to-date sales are the best in the company’s Canadian history.

That means not only a lower centre of gravity, but direct routing of torque to the wheels. On the 2012 Impreza, there are two AWD versions. With the standard five-speed manual transmission, there is a viscous-coupling, limited-slip centre differential that splits power 50/50 between front and rear. With the optional, second-generation Lineartronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), there is a variable clutch to shift more power to the rear under acceleration. In normal driving, the torque is split 60/40 front/rear. CVT-equipped models also feature steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, giving the driver six pre-set virtual gear ratios. Subaru claims the new Impreza is the most fuel-efficient AWD car in North America at approximately 7.5/5/5L/100 km city/ highway. The 2012 Impreza will be offered as a four-door sedan or fivedoor hatchback, but the latter, because of its long wheelbase, looks like a station wagon. It is also the first to carry Subaru’s new hexagonal grille treatment which will be applied to all future products. While the 2012 model is the same width and length as the outgoing model, the wheelbase is increased by 25 millimetres, most of which is in the back seat where passengers get 50 millimetres more knee room.

Chevy ready to hold the hill Hyundai named a top green brand

terrain with a manual as effortless as an automatic, allowing drivers to get started without rolling backward or forward. In a Sonic equipped with hill-hold, a pitch sensor detects the tilt of

the body when the car is stopped on a slope and sends a signal to the stability-control system. This triggers the electronically controlled brake hardware to keep the wheels clamped for

up to two seconds after the driver releases the brake pedal. Hill-hold is like giving Sonic drivers a third foot, enhancing both the safety and the convenience of driving in hilly terrain.

Go RVing Canada launches map tool Go RVing Canada has announced its newest website feature, a blog/mapping tool available for viewing by all RV enthusiasts who visit GoRVing.ca. This new feature will be an excellent source of personal RVing stories, tips about RVing, suggestions for campgrounds to visit and ideas for your next RV adventure. The information tool will be guided by RVers who will blog about their exciting RV experiences at particular RV parks and campgrounds across Canada. Once they have written their review, the park will be plotted on a map to show

exactly where the park is located geographically. The address and website of the park will also be provided in each entry, allowing RVers to not only view the precise location of a particular park, but also have an idea of what the park is like and what to expect upon their visit. Go RVing Canada hopes this innovative tool will encourage more RV enthusiasts to take advantage of the hub of RV related information found on the Go RVing Canada website. Canada is full of spectacular campgrounds and this online initiative is a perfect opportunity

for Canadians to share their own RV experi-

ences, as well as learn about others.

We’ve all needed an extra hand at one time or another — but what about an extra foot? The 2012 Chevy Sonic offers just that, an “extra foot” with standard hill-hold technology on all manualtransmission models that can help novice and veteran stick drivers better manage hills. Typically, car manufacturers introduce cutting-edge technology and new features in luxury models and gradually filter them down to mainstream vehicles. However, Chevy is introducing hill-hold technology in the new Sonic, a sub-compact car. Hill-hold technology makes navigating hilly

Durango named a top safety pick Dodge Durango has been named a top safety pick for 2011 by the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The IIHS recognizes vehicles that perform “good” in front, side, rollover and rear crash test evaluations performed at its vehicle-research centre. This award applies to Durango models built after May 2011. Additionally, to be considered, vehicles also must have available electronic stability-control systems, which, research has shown, significantly reduce crash risks. The 2011 Dodge Durango offers consumers 45 safety and security features, including standard electronic stability control), which delivers three security features to improve over-

Keep flexing that crucial skeptical muscle

D

A

IE RR

BLYTHE NILSON Rational THOUGHTS the definition straight — being skeptical means raising an eyebrow when someone tells you something that sounds, well, fishy. It doesn’t mean being negative or being a denialist. When someone approaches you with a piece of news, you might believe it automatically because they are reliable or it sounds reasonable. If the claim is a bit outlandish (“I just saw Ogopogo do back flips off the bridge!”), you would raise your eyebrow and ask, “Did any one else see it? Where’s the video?” If your friend can supply neither corroboration nor video evidence, you‘re better off thinking he is pulling your leg or was mistaken. The most reasonable explanation is not that Ogopogo did back flips solely for him; rather, he was mistaken about

another perfectly normal and natural phenomenon or he was playing a joke on you. In the words of the late Carl Sagan, “Extraordinary claims require extraordinary evidence”. But, what about claims outside your field of expertise? What about frightening or dangerous claims? How do you assess those? For most people, there is no easy answer. Let’s take the recent spate of WiFi scares as

an example. A group of parents convinced Barrie, Ont. schools to turn off their WiFi because of fears the radio signals would harm children. Why were they so firm in their belief? One reason is that strongly worded appeals to emotion — especially regarding children — will temporarily short-circuit your bunk detector. Another reason is that the person making the claims, Henry Lai,

professor of bioengineering at the University of Washington in Seattle, sounded authoritative. However, according to the World Health Organization, “Despite extensive research, to date there is no evidence to conclude that exposure to low-level electromagnetic fields is harmful to human health.” Common sense also tells us that if WiFi did have such a negative effect, it would be widely felt because WiFi is now everywhere, but

there are, as yet, no measurable problems to be found. In this world of complex science and technology, it’s difficult to know what to believe. There are scam artists who will sell you “protective devices” that don’t do anything and, sometimes, these scoundrels fan the flames of manufactured scares. To be able to criticize these claims requires a fair bit of scientific knowledge. Unfortunately, many

people do not have such knowledge, so we need to rely on experts. For example, one good place to begin researching is the magazine Scientific American, which recently did a nice job of explaining why cellphones do not cause cancer. The trick to determining what may or may not be realistic is to avoid listening to just one person— because a single person may or may not be correct.

Do you believe that buying a particular brand of beer will make you incredibly popular and get you invited to all the best parties? Do you respond to emails asking you to type in all your bankaccount numbers and passwords? Probably not. If you raise an eyebrow at claims like these, you are a natural skeptic. Being skeptical means not being gullible. There are countless scoundrels out there trying to get your hardearned money and it is only by being skeptical that you can avoid being scammed. It is the seasoned skeptic who is always asking questions and being curious and, if you are like this, you are well on your way to having a naturally scientific mind.

Pirate Pak purchase helps kids White Spot restaurants are once again serving up help for the Zajac Ranch for Children. The restaurant chain will be selling its specialedition Adult Pirate Paks on Wednesday, Aug. 17, with $2 from each sale going to the Mission-area ranch that gives kids with life-threatening illnesses and chronic disabilities a summer-camp experience. With more than $105,000 raised during the past three years, White Spot has sent 50 kids to Zajac Ranch since 2008. A traditional White Spot menu favourite since 1968, the Pirate Pak was first created by founder Nat Bailey to provide a unique dining experience for kids ages 10 and under. White Spot’s special edition Adult Pirate Pak starts at $10.49 and is served in the iconic boat, which houses the burger, fries, soft drink, ice cream and chocolate gold coin.

Tee time is at 4 p.m. All proceeds go to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. Golfers must register by August 15. For more information or to join the tournament, call Jacki Andersen at 250-579-0195 or email janderso6@shaw.ca.

Make Muscles Move Canada Safeway has launched its fundraising and awareness campaign — Make Muscles Move — to support Muscular Dystrophy Canada. The month-long campaign started on July 30 and is intended to raise funds to support research and award Safeway mobility grants to hundreds of families living with neuromuscular disorders. Last year, $1.2 million was raised in Western Canada through a variety of in-store fundraising events, the Safeway Walk for Muscular Dystrophy

Guaranteed Lowest Prices on Home Health Care Supplies! Ostomy, Mastectomy, Bras, Braces & Compression Stockings

and through donations received from customers. During the campaign, Canada Safeway customers can make a donation at the checkstand when shopping at their local Safeway store. When a donation of $2 is made, customers receive five Air Miles reward miles.

Instead, it is important to examine the consensus of many scientists from the same field of study to see what their collective results reveal. Having a PhD or MD attached to your name is no guarantee of authority, but the combined results of a majority of experts in the same field of research do an excellent job of highlighting truths. When confronted with extraordinary claims, a seasoned skeptic always raises an eyebrow and says, “Wait a minute. I think I need to look into this a bit more.” The more you flex your skeptical muscle, the more finely tuned your bunk detector will be and the safer, healthier, richer and happier you will become.

The Kamloops Centre for Rational Thought and Centre For Inquiry Canada are hosting Christopher diCarlo on Sunday, Aug. 21 at 7 p.m. at the Desert Gardens community centre, 540 Seymour St. DiCarlo, a professor at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology, will be discussing his latest book, How To Become A Really Good Pain In The Ass: A Critical Thinker’s Guide To Asking The Right Questions.

CAMERON EARL TAYLOR It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Cameron. Cam ended his journey on August 5, 2011 surrounded with the love of the greatest treasures of his life, Bonny, Tammi, Cheryl, Karrie, Brayden, Rylan, Makayla, Kashlee, and Kytinn. Cam was very thankful he did not travel this journey alone. With him were those who loved him dearly and will remember him always. Bonny, his wife of 41 years, his mother Mabel, his girls Tammi (Bryan), Cheryl (Richard), Karrie (Brian), and his grandchildren Brayden, Rylan, Makayla, Kashlee and Kytinn, his sons by choice Warren, Heith and Josh. Much love and thanks to all who selÁessly gave of themselves in every way possible throughout Cams’ courageous battle with cancer. Although not named, please know your actions, kind words and positive energy does not go un-noticed. Special thanks to the friends and family who supported Cam and his ladies from the beginning to the end of his journey. Cams’ brothers and their wives, Bob and Bonnie, Kel & Jackie, Malcolm & Carol, family and friends, Laverne & Rudy, Randy & Vera, Roland & Linda, Lavona & Bucky, Raymond, Steven & Cheryl, Audrey and Diane. Cam was born May 23, 1951 in Enderby, BC and moved to Westwold at a young age where he met a little girl who was to become his soul mate, Bonny. They were married in 1970 and lived in the Westwold, Monte Lake area where they raised there three daughters. Cams’ love of logging began at age 14 and after 45 years it still gave him a thrill to get up and go to work. He became partners of Martin Mountain Logging in the early 1980’s and sole owner in 2007. He earned respect from everyone who worked with him. He never expected anyone to work harder than him or do anything he wouldn’t do. He was truly the hardest working man ever. If you were lucky enough to know Cam, you were given a gift of a lifetime. Cam had a contagious laugh and radiant smile that will be forever remembered and always missed. His love of nature, hunting and Àshing was shared by many friends and family. All who knew Cam will remember him and his constant canine companions. To some he was known as the Dog Whisperer. It was very important for Cam to share these passions with his children and grandchildren; he spent countless hours patiently teaching them all they needed to know. His plan this year was to retire with his wife in their cabin at Scuitto Lake, of which they affectionately named “A Little Piece of Heaven”. Although this did not happen we are sure his spirit will forever be tossing out the line searching for the big one or following the trail of the elusive mule deer buck, big horn sheep, elk or bear.

Cam, you will be forever loved, and greatly missed. We invite all to participate in The Celebration of The Journey of Cams’ Life. Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 2:00 pm Cam and Bonnys’ home, 3620 Garrett Road, Kamloops ( 5 minutes up highway 97, turn left on to Hannah Road, and then a right on to Garrett Road.) Donations warmly welcomed to the SPCA in the honor of Cam Taylor and his love of dogs

She Walks in Beauty

STEPHAN ANDREW MAZE 1927 ~ 2011

Stephen Andrew Maze of Kamloops passed away on August 3, 2011 at 83 years of age. He is survived by his loving wife Nancy, children Richard Maze, Peter Maze (Tamara Nesbitt) and Karen (Tyrone) Kennedy, all of Kamloops; grandchildren Stuart & Silken and Stephan & Thomas Maze, Hannah & Emma Kennedy; sister Julie (Jake) Redekop; Mike & Dorothy Lofting, Wendy & Ron Ward, David & Chris Lofting, and numerous nieces and nephews. Predeceased by parents Andrew and Katherine Mazurevich, and brothers Alex and Freddy Mazurevich. The Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 pm on Saturday, August, 13, 2011 in the Valleyview Bible Church, 2386 Trans Canada Hwy, with Pastor Dan Warkentin officiating.

She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all that’s best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes: Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven trees, Or softly lightens o’er her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling place. And on the cheek, and o’er that brow, So soft, so calm, so eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow; But tell of days in goodness spent, A mind of peace with all below, A heart whose love is innocent!

Special thanks to Dr. Steve Rollheiser, and to Home and Community Care Services. If friends so desire, donations in memory of Stephan may be made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Cr., South, Kamloops BC V2E 2S9.

Giovanni (John) Ramunno

(1926-2011)

Born October 10, 1927 - Celano, Italy Died August 16, 2000 - Kamloops, BC

The years are quickly passing Though still we can’t forget For in the hearts that love him His memory lingers yet. Your loving wife Teresa, children Gaudenza (Ben) Overmars Dante (Sandra) Ramunno Anna Thelheimer (and children) and grandchildren 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

One year has passed Since that sad day When the one we loved Was called away; His smile is gone forever His hands we cannot touch We have so many memories Of the one we loved so much His memory is our keepsake From which we’ll never part God has him in his keeping We have him in our hearts Love Your wife Giuliana and family

Maria will be laid to rest beside her husband John who predeceased her in 2006. The Graveside Service will be held at the McBride Cemetery on Saturday, August 20, 2011 at 1:00 pm. Pastor Dan Carlaw officiating. Friends and family are invited to a reception after the service, to share stories and memories of Maria. We will miss you Mom

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

The Angel On Your Shoulder

MARIA WASSING

By Jackie Huston Lena, Wisconsin

There’s an angel on your shoulder Though you may not know she’s there, She watches over you day and night And keeps you in her care. There’s an angel on your shoulder Watching you learn and grow Keeping you safe from danger And nurturing your soul. She’ll be there through your triumphs She’ll dance on clouds with pride, She’ll hold your hand through disappointments and fears, Standing faithfully by your side. In her lifetime this angel was strong and true, And stood up for what was right. In your life you’ll be faced with decisions and trials And she’ll shine down her guiding light. Life holds so much in store for you, So remember as you grow older, There are no heights you cannot reach ‘Cause there’s an angel on your shoulder. Bereavement Publishing Inc. 5125 N.
