Study says Ajax feasible project By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It has yet to receive approval from senior levels of government, but the proposed Ajax mine south of Aberdeen has cleared a major hurdle. The results of a feasibility study show there is an economic case to develop the mine. According to the results of the study, which was released by Abacus Mining and Exploration on Wednesday, Dec. 21, under recent mineral prices, the value of the mine could quadruple to $1.6 billion from the initial $416 million. In a statement, Abacus CEO and president Jim Excell noted the feasibility study confirms the economic viability of the mine at long-term copper and gold prices. The study also noted that, under optimum conditions, Ajax would pay back its initial capital in just over two years. The initial capital cost to start the mine is projected to be $795 million, including a contingency of $87 million. “The Ajax mine economics compare very favourably to the leading copper projects being developed around the world, given its long life, location, open-pit mining and conventional processing,” Excell said. The mine is expected to produce 2.5-billion pounds of

copper and 2.7-million ounces of gold over its 23-year life span. The feasibility study was conducted in May 2010. According to the London Metal Exchange, in the last three years, copper has been trading for as low as a $1 per pound to a high of more than $4.50 per pound last year. The metal is currently listed at $3.29 a pound. The release of the statements noted a number of factors could alter the results, from changes to commodity prices to the mining company’s ability to get required permits, including permission from Kinder Morgan to gain access to a pipeline right-of-way. The feasibility study is likely to be a topic of discussion at upcoming public-consultation meetings. Federal and provincial environmental-assessment agencies will hold a public comment period from Jan. 11 to March 12, including a two-day public-information session on Feb. 6 and Feb. 7 at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre on Rogers Way. Located partially within City of Kamloops boundaries and two kilometres from a pair of Aberdeen elementary schools, the Ajax mine operation would stretch west to the Coquihalla Highway and is part of the old Afton mine site.

Lorne Street transformed By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

In a couple of years, Lorne Street near Riverside Park is going to look very different. But, before major changes to the road and landscaping around the street begin, a smaller construction project is almost complete. The city has just finished installing underground BC Hydro and cable lines along Lorne Street between First and Third avenues as part of the overall plan to beautify the area. Crews are also just finishing work to get the sidewalk back in place. The project was budgeted at $725,000, with BC Hydro covering $145,000 and the city picking up the rest of the tab. Though the project resulted in some traffic delays along the street, the real work and ensuing traffic snarl doesn’t start until spring. Beginning in April, city crews will be ripping up Lorne Street to replace sewer and water mains and, eventually,

the road top itself. The intersection of Lorne and Third will be shut down to build a roundabout, while new landscaping is being installed during the summer. David Trawin, the city’s director of development and engineering services, noted the city is chipping in about $3 million for the project, which includes the hydro work from this year. Another large portion of the cost of the roundabout will come from development cost charges to the tune of $800,000, while the Sandman Hotel, which is being built on Lorne Street across from Riverside Park, is contributing $400,000. “At the end of the day, that area will look very different and a lot nicer than it does now,� Trawin said. In 2013, the city is planning a complete realignment of the intersection at Lorne Street, Lansdowne Street and First Avenue. That project is expected to cost another $850,000.i

Holiday Greetings from the Mayor Happy Holidays! As we look forward to another productive year, it is a good time to look at some of the highlights from 2011. Kamloops was proud to host the Canadian Indoor Masters Athletic Championships and the Western Canada Summer Games. Construction was completed at Slo-Pitch City in Rayleigh and the project was renamed the Tournament Capital Ranch. The Tournament Capital Centre welcomed its 1 millionth visitor for the second year in a row. The multi-family curbside recycling program was initiated, and will be operational by April 1, 2012. Sustainability Plans 1 and 2 were completed and the Parks Master Plan review has been initiated. The Transit Garage on Ord Road was completed and the Valleyview Bikeway Interchange is near completion. Construction at Fire Hall No. 7 in Aberdeen is near completion and will be operational in the spring. After receiving consecutive National/International Communities in Bloom titles, the City of Kamloops was awarded National Mentor status. We have collectively undertaken many exciting projects, which have been accomplished with the help and vision of our dedicated staff. On behalf of my family, City Council, management and staff, Merry Christmas to you and your family. We hope that you have the opportunity to spend time with friends and family and truly appreciate the meaning of the holiday TFBTPO)BQQZ/FX:FBSBOECFTUXJTIFTJO

So, this is Christmas — and see what you have done!

T

HAT JOHN LENNON was one smart guy. He knew there was more to life than taking, that it was important to give back, too. And so, this is Christmas — and what have you done? In Kamloops, a lot was done in the past year to help make the Tournament Capital an even better place in which to live than it was last year. There are so many places to start, so let’s go with one that is near to my heart — the Kamloops Food Bank. I can’t count the number of times this year its executive director, Bernadette Siracky, and the woman who organizes all of its events, Kari Smith, have said how the generosity of Kamloopsians overwhelms them. In fact, there are fundraisers that happen all the time that the food bank folks don’t know about until someone shows up at the office with a bag full of money, a cheque, a bundle of food items. In a perfect world, there would be no food bank, no hunger, no need to ask for baby food and diapers for the youngest of us, who are also clients. But, since the world is far from perfect, it’s heartwarming to see how

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL the city steps up. In the past many months, I’ve written stories on three kids dealing with cancer. The youngest is a toddler and the oldest isn’t yet a teenager. For each, so many others have stepped up to help out, from shovelling a driveway to helping raise money to cover those non-MSP expenses to just being there to listen, to lend a hand and, yes, to cry with them sometimes. In a perfect world, our children would never know cancer or any other horrible disease. Until then, these stories remind us of the true meaning of community. I also followed the story of Brocklehurst neighbours.

One needed a kidney; one was willing to give hers to him. The story of Dave Kozoris and Tracey Louvros ended with six surgeries in one day, three kidneys donated and three kidneys transplanted. Six lives changed forever — and for the better. You can read more about their story next week in KTW. Hometown hero Mark Recchi lent his name, his face and his enthusiasm to Royal Inland Hospital to help pay for the new intensive-care unit. He didn’t have to do it; Kamloopsians will keep on loving him just because he’s Mark, he’s awesome and he brings the Stanley Cup to town when he has the chance. About 1,300 of you helped the city host the successful economyboosting Western Canada Games in the summer. It’s not easy to keep the moniker of Tournament Capital of Canada if the city can’t pull off these big-ticket events — and that can’t happen without volunteers. And, then, there are others who have done things to help the city. There are all those folks who comprised Friends of Riverside and

who took on city hall and won. That’s not an easy task and, whether or not you agree with them, they at least took part in the democratic process — and I’m betting they all voted in November’s municipal election, too. There’s another group out there asking hard questions about the proposed Ajax mine. Again, they’re butting heads with a large international corporation, but they’re willing to do it because they care about their community and its health. There are so many more stories like this out there and we’ll likely never hear about many of them because they are the result of individuals doing something in their own quiet, private way to strengthen the fibre of the Kamloops community. In a way, they keep the Christmas spirit alive the other 364 days of the year by giving the gift of caring for others. And, so, this is Christmas — and you’ve done some great things. Enjoy the holiday now and let’s do it all again next year. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

Kamloops Mission offers New Life to many in desperate need Editor: I have been with the New Life Mission (NLM) as the executive director for 13 months. The most amazing part of the journey has been the people I have met. The NLM serves a unique part of our community who need love and support in a variety of ways. Our staff and volunteers carry a burden of love that is like no other. When you see a person who is suffering turn it around, there is nothing more special. As we head into 2012, the need

for our services continues to rise. We have been serving a record number of meals at the Outreach Centre in the past months. In fact, we will dish up more than 45,000 meals in 2011. We also offer many other services for the community. We have booked in more than 600 people to see our in-house dentist, doctor and nurses. We also provide a foot-care clinic, emergency clothing, haircuts, employment assistance, a pro-bono law clinic and more. The most dramatic transforma-

tions we see at the mission are in our addiction-recovery programs. The NLM and the House of Ruth long-term residentialrecovery programs are committed to providing safe, clean and sober environments for men and women working to overcome gambling, drug and/or alcohol dependencies. Our recovery programs are the only long-term option in our region. Clients can reside with us for up to two years. With counselling, around-theclock staffing, food, accommodation and other expenses, the mis-

Kamloops This Week is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry. The council considers complaints from the public about the con-

sion spends $120 per day for each client. That works out to $43,800 per year for each client. The provincial government provides $40 per day per client, while the NLM needs to raise funds to pick up the remaining $80 per day. The investment is minimal in comparison to other alternatives the people we serve would face. The 20 to 30 clients we have in recovery would be facing life on the street, trouble with the law, jail, court, the need for emergency services, hospital time, medical care — the list goes on and on.

We Can’t Do it Alone The BC SPCA cares for thousands of orphaned, abandoned and abused animals each year.

Special rate of 0.50% discount off loans placed by Feb 10th, 2012 Reasons for considering a RRSP Loan • Are you short of the cash needed for an RRSP contribution? • Are you looking to maximize your income tax return? • Are you looking to take full advantage of your unused RRSP contribution room? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then a RRSP Loan could be just what you need. What are the advantages? • Using a RRSP loan to maximize your RRSP contributions this year. Or catch up on previous year’s contributions can save you from paying taxes today while helping you save for a comfortable retirement. • With interest rates at historical lows and with Canadians having more unused RRSP room than ever before, it’s a great time to utilize the value of an RRSP loan. • Compared to the tax refund, the cost of borrowing is low. Remember, you can always apply any tax refund you receive directly to your RRSP loan and further reduce the cost of borrowing. Reducing the amount of tax you pay is easy! Call or visit us today to learn more about this offer.

Deadline for RRSP’s is Feb 29th, 2012

Volunteers are urgently needed to care for animals and assist with SPCA events. If you can help, please contact your local shelter today. www.spca.bc.ca

The Seniors Outreach Society, Volunteer Kamloops, Thompson Rivers University and the City of Kamloops are joining to launch the Snow Angels program. City bylaws require people keep their sidewalks clear but some — like the elderly and disabled — have difficulty doing this. Snow Angels matches volunteers with seniors or people with mobility issues who need help clearing paths, stairs, sidewalks and driveways of snow and ice. Seniors can nominate a “snow angel” with Seniors Outreach, which will send the volunteer a letter of commendation and enter the person into a prize draw. Anyone interested in becoming a snow angel can call 250-372-8313, email snowangelskamloops@gmail.com or go to the Seniors Outreach Society website at kamseniorsoutreach.ca.

ROAD SHOW UNCOVERS HUGE TREASURE IN KAMLOOPS By Amy Luccianio - RoadShow Staff Writer

Canada’s largest appraiser and buyer of silver coins and gold estate jewelry has uncovered a massive collection of gold and silver during their current stop in Kamloops. The Canadian Treasures Road Show four day stop in Kamloops this week was nothing out of the ordinary with local folks coming into the show selling their silver and gold coins and unwanted or unused gold jewelry. People usually have a few hundred dollars coming to them from the sale of their items reports Road Show manager Amy Luccianio however we were in shock when a gentleman walked into the show with a dolly loaded with three card board boxes full of silver and gold coins. When we began to sort through the coins it became very obvious that this would take several hours as there was thousands and thousands of coins both Canadian and US. The huge collection was accumulated over fifty years by the now current owners grandfather. Kevin Scott who himself just recently retired shared his amassing story of how his grandfather found most of the coins while working at the municipal dump in Brandon Manitoba. Papa was the only employee at the dump for thirty three years and during that time he set up a small car washing and cleaning side business at the dump and it was free of charge in exchange for any pop bottles or beer bottles the customers would donate.

Papa also offered a free interior vacuum service with the car wash and he would always find a few coins in the ashtray or on the floor and 99 % of the time his customers would tell him to keep the coins. For thirty some years Papa would come home each day and put the few coins in a glass jar and over the years the collection turned into hundreds of jars of silver coins. I can clearly remember my grand father saying some day we will be rich, rich, rich when I sell my coins and then he would break into a big belly laugh that would rattle the dishes in grammas china cabinet. Papa never did cash in his coins however he spent many a night picking out what he thought would some day become rare or collector coins and would tell me some day this coin or that coin would be worth a fortune. My grand father passed on many years ago and left his collection to my sister and I. Now with us retiring we decided we would see what the collection would be worth so we brought them to the Canadian Treasures Road Show in Kamloops. After several hours of going over the coins the road show staff had in fact discovered twenty one US silver dollars that had the rare mint mark from the San Francisco Mint mint and these coins alone are worth eight hundred dollars apiece. They also uncovered one half ounce gold coin and seven ¼ ounce gold coins.

The gold coins we decided to keep and give to our grand children however as none of our children or grandchildren have an interest in coin collecting we decided to sell the baulk of Papas collection as they were worth many times their face value as the price of silver is at world record highs The total weight of the coins was 102 lbs and the Road Show staff offered us a fantastic price of...well lets just say Papa was right when he said some day we would be rich. It was sad to hand over Papas coins but we are sure he would get a huge belly laugh if he knew his silver coins earned us enough to pay for a big part of his great grand children’s schooling. The Road Show is back in Kamloops at the Thompson Hotel on Victoria St. for two days only Friday, Saturday December 22nd & 23rd 2011.

We can’t thank enough the dedicated doctors and nurses on the ICU and on 7 North, for their compassionate care of our mom and gentle support they extended to our family.

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.”

Merry Christmas to our y Jesseboy y 2011

Prayer For Peace Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. When there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon;

c

Gentle snowÁakes touch our faces, As a tear trails down our cheeks, Among crowds and glistening tinsel Your face, we once more seek. Another year has come to pass .. With not one glimpse of you Except in dreams, you visit us In shades of hazy blue. Christmastime will soon be here, We long to see your face, Just once again, to see your smile And dream of your embrace. Christmastime is boxed up In tones of purple hue. It’s wrapped in misty memories, And laced with thoughts of you. ..

c

Forever Loved Jess y Mum, Dad, Kyle, Char, Lil Jesse yyyyy 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

Where there is doubt, faith;

ALDO PULLANO

Where there is despair, hope;

September 21, 1958 – December 24, 2010

It has been one year that you were taken away from us. There is not one day that we do not think of you. We shared lots of years and fun with you. We just can’t believe it has ended this way. There were so many things we wanted to say. We just can’t believe such a tragic accident and death has left a big hole, but we’ll try not to fret, you’re now a Free Soul. So when times are great and happy as such, we will think of you, our brother. For now, Goodbye. You were part of our life that we will never forget. Love you, miss you always in our hearts. Ada and all of your family

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.

Where there is darkness, light; It’s been a year since you’ve been gone It still hurts all day long There isn’t a day that goes by Without me thinking “why?” So many things I wanted to say I never imagined you’d be so far away In my heart you’ll always be Until the time is meant for me. I never got to say goodbye But I know you’re always by my side We share so many happy memories My little brother . . . my friend May our love for you reach Heaven today You’re sadly missed by all Until we meet again Maria & Victor Pagnotta and your family

I thought I would share some tips to ensure that your new laptop does not die prematurely. Here are the things I commonly see every month that kill laptops: It is easy to lift your laptop the wrong way and snap a USB device plugged into the side. USB ports are hard wired to the laptop motherboard and snagging a USB device will often break the port. This means a new motherboard and likely no warranty. Plug USB devices in carefully, because it is easy to plug them in upside down and break the port (Again no warranty). If you use your laptop on a soft surface such as a bed or sofa it covers up the cooling ports , resulting in overheating and blown components. Dropped laptops are another common problem. It’s so easy to trip over the power cord, or fido jumps up enthusiastically or knock the laptop from a precarious perch. Surprisingly, breaking the screen is not as expensive as you think. Call me for a quote. If you need help with any computer issues please call me at the number below and I will schedule a visit to your house or business!

Holiday Wishes from the Kamloops Homelessness Action Plan (HAP)

The HAP would like to send many thanks to everyone who has been helping to end homelessness in Kamloops. There is a long list of people who have been helping house, feed and care for people at-risk of homelessness. Perhaps the most fitting place to start is at the front-line where Outreach Workers and Street Nurses make contact with people in need. These dedicated, strong and compassionate people work with people in crisis every day and we thank them for their selflessness. We would also like to thank all of the Community Agencies, Churches, Non-Profits and Public bodies who provide Housing and Support Services all through the year. Everyone involved deserves high praise for their tireless efforts. Another thank you goes to the Vancouver Foundation and the Tula Community Fund for supporting the HAP with $6,000.00 that will go towards a Community Assessment of Life Skills Training Services, and to Teck Industries for their generous donation of $50,000.00 that will be used to implement solutions that help people transition to Financial Independence. Huge thanks also go to Thompson Rivers University for their involvement on many levels, and in particular for all of the students who have been involved in Community Based Projects. We would also like to thank the Community Partners in the HAP; the City of Kamloops, United Way, ASK Wellness Centre, Elizabeth Fry Society and Canadian Mental Health Association, along with the amazing volunteers who have dedicated their valuable time to become involved through Changing the Face of Poverty, the HAP Leadership Council, and the Kamloops Housing Board. We look forward to working with you all in 2012, and we look forward to all of the progress we will make towards providing safe, appropriate, housing for everyone in our community. Thank you Kamloops!

Kayla Griffiths, age 9

Can you be seen? Lighting the way to safe driving By Kate Wells, DriveWise BC When I was 16 and learning to drive, I was taught to turn on my lights during the day, and not just at night. And to this day, I still do. Even though every vehicle I have owned has come with daytime running lights, I still turn on my low beam headlights. It’s become as automatic as turning on my car. Why turn on your headlights when your car comes equipped with daytime running lights? Simple. When you turn on your headlights, not only is the light bright-

er, but you are also illuminating the tail lights on the rear of your vehicle. This makes you even more visible from the front and the back. Daytime running lights are a dimmer version of your headlights and fail to light up the tail lights. One of the biggest defensive driving techniques is simply to be seen on the road. Using the headlights and taillights will make it easier for other drivers to judge your speed and your distance. Plus, depending on the colour of your vehicle, visibility can also be difficult. Many silver, grey, blue or even black cars are less visible than, say, a bright red vehicle.

In this picture you can see the van coming toward the camera does not have headlights on. The vehicle behind it does and is much more visible. The car in front of the camera does not have headlights on either, as you can tell by the tail lights, however the white van in front of the car, does. The tail lights are also much more noticeable. • You must use your headlights from 30 minutes after sunset until 30 minutes before sunrise or if visibility is reduced to less than 150 metres. • High beams must be dimmed if a

vehicle is within 150 metres of you so you don’t blind the other driver. • In fog, use low beam headlights or fog lamps, not high beams. A challenge to all drivers: TURN ON YOUR LIGHTS at all times during the day so we can all BE SEEN.

December The gift giving gets out of control, but who cares, Capricorn. Go with the flow and have fun. Dinner plans get even better with the arrival of unexpected December 22– guests.

January 19

January 20– February 18

February 19– March 20

Family members go all out to make this week special for you. Your presence is the only thanks needed, Aquarius. A colleague achieves the impossible. Congratulate them. Cash flows increase considerably, giving you the funds you need to finish a project at home. Go ahead, Pisces, and bring in a pro. You won’t regret it.

Out with the old and in with the new, Aries. There is no time like the present to clear away the clutter and learn how to do more with less.

March 21– April 19

Your calendar begins to open up, and that’s fine by you, Taurus. You had more than your fair share of fun, and now it’s time to get back down to business.

April 20– May 20

Hold on to your hat, Gemini. A blast from the past returns with surprises in tow for everyone. Mark the occasion with plenty of food and fun.

May 21– June 21

Paige, age 4

Week One celebration ends and another one begins. Play your cards right, Cancer, and you may have something worthwhile to celebrate. A relative needs your help.

June 22– July 22

You’re inching closer to your dream, but you’re not there yet. Don’t give up, Leo. Plunge ahead and use every resource to make it happen. A memo sends a message.

July 23– August 22

At last, you complete your to-do list and get ahead in several other areas of your life. Do something fun to celebrate, Virgo. Go dancing or see a movie.

August 23– September 22

September 23– October 22

October 23– November 21

The calm settles in after the storm. Take time out to smell the roses, Libra. A project at work wraps up just in time for another one to begin,

Startling revelations at a holiday function put everyone on edge. It’s up to you to work your magic and get the party back on track, Scorpio.

A slip-up gets your heart pounding, but lucky for you, Sagittarius, few notice it or take you seriously. A junk find has serious hidden November 22– potential.

The evils of squaring off on the holidays

“G

go to waste.” And that’s how it happens — 10,000-calories worth of pastryshop trimmings meet an individual, sometimes collective, lack of Christmastime willpower. All because of some gooey lemon filling and shortbread crust. Or pecans nestled in buttery

sugar and more shortbread. Or gingerbread slices, Turtles squares or peppermint ganache bars. Squares of sticky chocolate. Squares of coconut and condensed milk. Squares made with crunchy sugared almonds, or dates and crumble. Squares to tempt the most abstemious among us, adding flabby flotation devices around our middles and, later, driving the industries that profit from New Year’s resolutions. That, however, is a matter for next week. Meanwhile, ‘tis still the season of indulgence and, if baking at home is fraught with pitfalls — like batter bowls and beaters that need to be licked clean before washed — having access to a professional pastry shop is the next circle of temptation. When the mixing bowl belongs to a hotel or catering kitchen, you see, chefs from the savoury side of the prep table tend to flock to the scraps like pigeons to bread crumbs. And, because chefhusband likes to bring goodies home to chef’swife, whose December evenings grow long on account of so many Christmas parties, I do not get an exception. This is how it works: Before squares become squares, they are baked in sheets that, for the sake of uniform cuts, have an inch of edge trimmed on all sides. All those cuttings, not pretty enough for presentation, are very nearly as delicious as the centre cuts. There are only two ways to dispose of them. (Three, really, but the third is an industry secret and I’ve been sworn.) One: They are scraped into the rubbish bin. Two: They are fobbed of on coworkers.

From there, they are dusted with confectioners’ sugar and smuggled home in doggie bags. They are shared with friends and family to become cookie fingers at coffee time or snacks while gift wrapping. They become rewards for surviv-

ing the mall and postal lineups and sugary sedatives for post-familyreunion syndrome. In short, they are the everyprescription — and pastry chefs are their pushers. nicefatgurdie.wordpress.com.

Lemon squ ares Makes two dozen 3/4 cup butter, frozen 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour 3/4 cup confectioners’ sugar For the filling: 4 large eggs, lightly beaten 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar 3 tbsp. all-purpose flour 1/4 tsp. kosher salt 3/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 4 lemons) Zest of one lemon 1/4 cup half and half Prepare a nine-by-13-inch glass baking dish by buttering it, then lining it with parchment paper. Smooth the parchment into the butter to seal it. To make the crust, grate the frozen butter using a box grater with large holes. Place back into freezer. Meanwhile, whisk together flour and confectioners’ sugar. Add frozen, grated butter, and stir with a fork until mixture is crumbly and evenly combined. Transfer crust mixture to the prepared dish. Press crumbs into the bottom with the flat bottom of a measuring cup. Place in freezer for 15 minutes, then into a 350 F oven for 18 minutes, until barely golden. Meanwhile, make the filling. Whisk together eggs, sugar, flour and salt until smooth. Whisk in lemon juice, zest and half and half. Pour over baked crust. Reduce oven temperature to 325 F and bake for about 25 minutes, until filling is set and edges are golden. Set on a wire rack to cool for five minutes, then lift from pan using overlapping parchment, and allow to cool completely on wire rack. Using a sharp chef’s knife dipped in a cup of hot water, trim (and eat — I dare you not to) edges (wiping clean and reheating knife for each cut). Cut the rest into 24 two-inch squares. Dust with more confectioners’ sugar. Store, refrigerated, in a single layer inside an airtight container. Will keep up to three days. Baker’s notes: Lay sheet of parchment so it overlaps on both lengthwise sides. This will help you lift the baking later. Leave the widthwise sides buttered only.

An apocalyptic view of Christmas

W

HAT IS Christmas and is it anything important at all? There’s certainly nothing important about Dec. 25, the date, because that came from the pagan birthday observance of a young, conquered sun. It’s certainly isn’t in the Bible. During that period of time, the pagans held two weeks of feast, parades, gift giving and lighting candles on green trees. And, some ambitious church folks living in that culture, decided to Christianize the holiday. In 330 A.D., Emperor Constantine declared Jesus Christ’s birthday an official Roman holiday. There were some protesters, such as Bishop Chrysostom, who rebuked Christians for adopting this pagan thing, but it stuck. We really don’t know when Jesus was born. Dec. 25 is really a grab-bag day, dedicated to a pagan festival that

NARAYAN MITRA You Gotta Have FAITH has nothing to with Scriptures. So, if it isn’t really the date that has historical significance (like July 1 or Nov. 11), what about the name? It’s a short form of Christ’s mass, which grew out of a specific feast day called Christos Masse, which was established in 1038. Again, it has nothing to do with Scriptures. Christmas is not a holy day, not a divinely prescribed day. In fact, it was in 1224 that St. Francis of Assisi really started the babymanger thing when he started the worship of Mary by surrounding her in a manger with a baby.

So, what is Christian about Christmas? None of it! None of it is biblical, commanded by the Lord. None of it is apostolic. None of it was ever observed by the early church. In fact, the Puritans in early America deliberately worked on the first Dec. 25 in order to show disdain for the pagan holiday. In 1644, English Puritans even passed a law making Christmas day a working day. So, what is Christmas? Strip off the date, the name, the cards, the presents, the tree and the food and what have we got? Nothing! But, what about the birth of Christ? That sure is something to be celebrated — not once, but every day. We say if Christmas is nothing, then are we wrong to recognize it? Not necessarily, if we recognize it’s nothing. Secondly, we enjoy the time with family and friends — sharing our

love and being together. But, mostly I think Christmas is important because it gives Christians the opportunity to catch a world at least aware of Jesus and give them the truth. That’s really what we should be doing today. Christmas isn’t anything to us if we know Jesus Christ, any different than any other day because every day is a celebration for those who know and love Jesus. In fact, Christmas is a depressing time for most people. An article by Dr. J.M. Stubblebine, the former director of California Department of Mental Hygiene, goes like this: “The Christmas season is marked by greater emotional stress and more acts of violence than any other time of the year.” Christmas is an excuse to have a party, get something, give a little, leave work, get out of school, spend money, overeat,

get drunk. It is also an opportunity for us to exalt Jesus in the face of a world that is at least tuned in to his name. And, we should be ready to take advantage of it. As C.H. Spurgeon said, “Look, Christmas is here. We might as well live with it and take the opportunity to exalt Christ.” I think we are a lot closer to the Second Coming of Jesus than when he came for the first time. He came more than 2,000 years ago and I am confident it wont’

be another 2,000 years before he returns. I am confident also the world is quite happy to let Jesus be a baby in a manger, but not the sovereign King and the Lord that he is. At the end of Book of Revelation, we read the words of Jesus as he summarized: “I, Jesus, have sent my angels to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David.” The question is always asked, “Who is Jesus Christ?” XSee HONOURING B15

FAITH

Honouring Christ as the sustainer of life Here, at the end of Revelation, the offspring is the one born in Bethlehem of the lineage of David. But, he also added, “I am the root of David,” which is an outstanding statement. For in it he is saying not only I am born the seed of David, but I am the one who made David in the first place. Now, if the Book of Revelation is to be a presentation of this child, this fruit and this offspring of David, then we need to see clearly who he is. The Jesus whom we exalt on Christmas Day is not just a baby in a manger. He not a children’s story. He is far more. First time he came veiled in the form of a child and not too many really knew it. The world didn’t take much notice. Some did, but most did not. But, the second time he comes, he comes unveiled, without the robe of human flesh. When he comes again, it would be abundantly clear and immediately clear to all the world just who really he is! The first time, a star marked his arrival. Next time he comes,

the whole heaven would roll up like a scroll and all the stars would fall out of the sky. He himself will light it. The first time he came, wise men and shepherds brought him gifts. Next time, he would bring gifts, rewards for his own. The first time, there was no room for him in the inn. Next time, the whole world won’t be able to contain his glory. The first time, a few attended his arrival. Next time, every eye shall see him. There are many other portraits of Christ in the Scriptures. We could approach Christmas, perhaps as we did in years past in the Old Testament, seeing him presented in Isaiah as the messiah, the wonderful counsellor, the mighty God, the prince of peace. We could study him as the angel of the Lord, as one co-equal with God in the Old Testament. Or, we could see him there as a gentle baby, as an unique child, a humble man, a loving friend, and as a powerful miracle worker, as a suffering saviour, as a risen and ascending Lord. We could study the gospels and see the

Entry-level earnings start at $30.79/hour to $40.42/hour. Train Locally – The only program of its kind in BC, students can learn within their local communities via distance education, local and/or regional clinical placements, and some regional classroom delivery. This 23 month program is accredited by the College of Registered Psychiatric Nurses of BC (CRPNBC). Government student loans, Employment & Labour Market Services (ELMS), band funding & other financing options available to qualified applicants.

Operation Red Nose Treat yourself to a safe ride home this holiday season. PacificSport Interior BC is hosting OPERATION RED NOSE again in Kamloops. Motorists who have had a drink or who simply do not feel fit to drive their own vehicles can phone Operation Red Nose and a team of three volunteers will pick you up and drive you in your own vehicle home. Motorists sit comfortably and safely with a designated RED NOSE driver and volunteer navigator. The escort vehicle drives the Operation Red Nose team to other clients or back to the headquarters. The service is free and confidential, however, donations are accepted and will go towards amateur sport right here in our own community.

OPERATION RED NOSE WILL BE RUNNING ON THE FOLLOWING DATES: Friday Dec. 9th, Saturday Dec. 10th Friday Dec. 16th, Saturday Dec. 17th Friday Dec. 30th, Saturday Dec 31st City of Kamloops

Shammi could light up a room with his dazzling smile and fun-loving spirit. You could meet him just once, but you never forgot him. He could inspire you and make you feel so positive after only a brief conversation. He was killed instantly on his way home from work by an impaired driver. Celebrations, parties and family gatherings are so difÀcult to attend now. For all of us. There will always be one empty place at our table. This is my plea to you ... don’t drive impaired ... prevent this from happening to someone else. Kay Ramnarine (Shammi’s wife)

Drive smart this holiday season.
