HST VOTING PROCESS HAS BEGUN IN KAMLOOPS

WEDNESDAY

The two provincial ridings in Kamloops are among the 38 constituencies in B.C. to be first to receive the HST referendum voting packages, which were mailed to each registered voter on Monday, June 13. Voting packages will be delivered to the remaining 47 electoral districts on June 20. Voters who do not receive a voting package by June 24 may call Elections BC toll-free at 1-800-661-8683 to register to vote or update their voter record and request a voting package. Deadline to ask for a voting package is midnight on Friday, July 8. Ballot packages must be received by Elections BC, a Service

BC Centre or an Elections BC Collection Centre before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, July 22, 2011. The yellow return envelope is postage paid and no stamp is required if mailed in Canada. Locations to hand-deliver ballot packages — which may be the preferred method in light of continued job action at Canada Post — are listed on the Elections BC website at electionsbc.ca. In Kamloops, ballot packages can be delivered by hand to the Service BC office at 250-455 Columbia St., 250-828-4540.

TOBIANO FALLS INTO RECEIVERSHIP The Tobiano golf course and residential development west of Kamloops has gone into receivership, less than two weeks after developer Mike Grenier, in an interview with KTW, dismissed rumours of the property being in financial jeopardy. By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

As the future of Tobiano Resort is sorted out after falling into receivership last week, a picture of what it was like behind the scenes at the resort is emerging. Dave Behnsen was the guest-services manager at Tobiano until recently and recalled how staff cuts last season hurt employee morale at the golf course. He said the “bare bones” staff levels led to him working 55 hours a week without any thanks from Michael Grenier, the head of the Tobiano development. “Not once did Mike come to me and say I really appreciate the extra effort,” Behnsen told KTW. He believes a

change in ownership will be well-received by employees and ultimately be good for the future of the resort. “I think it’s a great thing and the future of Tobiano is bright,” Behnsen said, adding the golf course is too good not to succeed. Word of the resort’s financial woes broke on Monday, June 13, after the real-estate side of the resort and golf course were ordered into receivership by the B.C. Supreme Court on June 9. Pagebrook Inc. and Kamlands Holdings Ltd., which are both companies owned by Grenier, owe the Bank of Montreal debts totaling roughly $26 million. The Bowra Group, which also took control of the troubled Mission Hill development in Kamloops last year, has

Despite the financial turmoil at Tobiano, it’s expected to be business as usual for the golf course and residents living on Kamloops Lake. The Bowra Group has been appointed receiver. Bowra representative Douglas Chivers said the company intends to continue to operate the resort and golf course. “It’s in no way shut down,” he said.

Though the golf course has received several accolades in its short history, Grenier couldn’t make a go of the resort.

The developer blames two factors for Tobiano’s financial situation: The global economic downturn and the resort’s failure to secure funding for its planned marina. XSee DESPITE A17

THIS WEEK

Airport not affected by labour strife By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek. com

Glen Grant, general manager of the B.C. WIldlife Park, was thrilled to receive a $25,000 donation from Kamloops businessman Ken Lepin, who decided to offer the money to help save the deer fawn rehabilitation centre at the park, which was to be closed due to much-needed upgrades and a lack of funds to complete them. “It’s really nice a local philanthropist would step up,� Grant said.

Fond of fawns, philanthropist ďŹ nds funds STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

When Ken Lepin reads the newspaper, he commits more to the issues than most readers — about $25,000 more. The generous Kamloops This Week reader of Heathron Development Ltd. has saved the deer-fawn rehabilitation enclosure at the B.C. Wildlife Park from permanently closing. Lepin donated the $25,000 needed to renovate the degraded pen after reading a June 3 KTW article that detailed the pen’s poor conditions, the need for funding and the closure.

The donation is similar to when Lepin picked up the tab for a new van for the Salvation Army in 2004 after reading Dale Bass’s KTW article on the issue. “You guys always cost me money,� Lepin said with a chuckle. Lepin is no stranger to community financial aid. “I’ve supported the university, the hospital, the Salvation Army — all sorts of causes,� Lepin said. This latest cause is close to home for Lepin, who often sees deer around his house. “My wife and I both have a fondness for fawns,� Lepin said. The B.C. Wildlife Park’s decision to close the pen came after its

last fawn was released back into the wild. Park general manager Glenn Grant said the decision was difficult, but came down to needing to ensure the park’s animals were taken care of first. Priority was given to renovating the Double H Corral, which is home to eight goats, three donkeys and two llamas. The park simply couldn’t afford to renovate the deer pen and accept more fawns. The $25,000 donation from Lepin will be used to restore the pen into a healthy environment for deer rehabilitation. Some areas of the pen that

2011

need renovations include worndown grass, a fence that is too low and an elm tree that needs to be removed. Grant wasn’t expecting a donation to arrive so soon after telling the tale to KTW. “For someone to read an article in the paper, think about it over the weekend, visit the park and then write a cheque — it’s quite overwhelming.� If anything, Grant said, he expected a corporation would possibly make a donation. “It turned out he [Lepin] really wanted to help us out,� Grant said. “It’s really nice a local philanthropist would step up.�

It will be business as usual at Fulton Field, despite a strike by about 4,000 Air Canada customer-service employees. While other airports throughout the country will be impacted in some way by the strike, Air Canada flights out of Kamloops Airport are operated by Air Canada Jazz, which has its own employees and a union contract separate from that of Air Canada. Fred Legace, FRED the airLEGACE port’s managing director, told KTW the strike will have little impact on operations at the airport. “We’re anticipating we’ll see little, if any, effect,� he said. But, it won’t likely be the case at other cities across Canada. The union representing Air Canada’s 3,800 customer-service, reservations and ticketing agents picked up picket signs on Tuesday, June 14. At issue are wages and pensions, including a company bid to place new employees into a defined contribution plan, rather than a defined benefit plan, which has a guaranteed payout.

Ajax mine open house tomorrow By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s been the source of speculation and concern for several months, but residents in Kamloops will finally get a good look at a proposed mine project just outside city limits. A public open house on KGHM’s Ajax copper-gold mine is planned for Thursday, June 16, at the Kamloops Towne Lodge, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. The open house, which is part of the mining company’s environmentalassessment application, is being sponsored by the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency and the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office. Representatives from the mine will also be on hand to answer questions. The open house is not only expected to draw residents from the nearby neighbourhoods, but conservation groups worried about the mine’s impact, including the Grasslands Conservation Council of B.C. David Zirnhelt, a member of the council, said the group hasn’t taken a position yet on the proposed mine, but suggested there is concern the effect the mine will have on surrounding grasslands. “The impact on the grasslands in this area would be considerable, so we’re flagging the need for that impact to be assessed and that mitigation be planned for,” he said. Zirnhelt said it’s important for residents to attend the open house so concerns and questions can be noted

during the environmental-assessment process. The mine operation, which would be located a couple of kilometres south of the city limits in Aberdeen, stretches west to the Coquihalla Highway and is part of the old Afton Mine site. The mine is expected to produce about 50,000 tons of copper and 100,000 ounces gold per year for the life of operation, which is expected to be 23 years. John Froese, a community relations co-ordinator for Abacus Mining and Exploration, which is owned by Polish company KGHM, said it’s important to get the process started, but cautioned the open house is just the beginning. He said he expects people from different perspectives to attend the information session, including those opposed and in favour of the project. Froese said it’s up to the mining company to answer question and settle the concerns of residents. Meantime, the CEA is providing $50,000 to assist groups or individuals to participate in the federal environmental process. This funding is intended to support public participation in the process and a funding review committee, independent of the federal environmental assessment process, will assess all applications and make a recommendation on the allocation of funds. The deadline for applications is July 16.

A colourful graduation ceremony There was more colour than normal at the recent NorKam secondary graduation ceremony. Because of School District 73’s realignment last year, the Tranquille Road high school had more than 100 extra Grade 12s this year — students who were forced to leave Brocklehurst secondary after it was turned into a middle school. NorKam vice-principal Dave MacDonald said the school is paying tribute to its additional grads with different tassels — one in NorKam’s maroon and gold and another in Brock’s blue and grey. “Obviously, the Grade 12s com-

ing here, they were pretty bitter about coming here,” MacDonald said. “This was a forced move.” MacDonald said some of the graduating former Brock students originally wanted to wear blue gowns, but NorKam nixed that idea. “They’re Brock kids — their Brock colours are blue and grey,” he said. “We wanted to say, ‘It’s been a difficult, trying year, you are Brock kids, but we hope you think of yourself as NorKam kids now.” MacDonald said NorKam ordered about 160 blue and grey tassels.

Mounties looking for ghost rider Kamloops Rural RCMP investigators are looking to talk to the driver of a motorcycle found crashed on Sun Peaks Road on the weekend.

Police located the bike just after 10 p.m. on Friday, June 10. It appeared to have gone off the road prior to the driver taking off on foot.

Police know who the owner of the bike is and are now waiting for him to report the incident, as he is required to do under the Motor Vehicle Act.

Drunk driver to be sentenced today Crown wants Merritt man jailed for 18 months after driving into children on Parkcrest By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The drunk driver who ran down a group of children walking along a North Kamloops street in March should be jailed for a year and a half. That’s what the Crown argued on Monday (June 13) as John Darren Thompson entered guilty pleas to four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm in a B.C. Supreme Court courtroom in Kamloops. But the 41-year-old Merritt man will have to wait until at least today (June 15) to find out his fate. Thompson was arrested late in the evening of March 20, after the Jeep he was driving plowed into a group of children, aged 12 to 14, on Parkcrest Avenue in front of Parkcrest elementary. Four of the children suffered significant injuries. Three of the them were treated in hospital

and released, while the other suffered more serious head injuries. He has since been discharged

from hospital, but has not fully recovered. Thompson, who has a history of alcohol- and driving-related

offences, was originally facing 12 charges, including the four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm — one for each

victim. Mounties have also said Thompson was prohibited from driving and consuming alcohol at the time of the crash, but he was never charged with driving while prohibited. His blood-alcohol level at the time of the Parkcrest crash was more than twice the legal limit. Following the incident, Thompson’s family members told KTW his drinking became a problem after he lost his son in a drunk-driving accident last summer. Joshua Lavallee, 18, was killed in a single-vehicle crash near Chetwynd last June. Thompson is also facing an unrelated charge of uttering threats to cause death or bodily harm, stemming from an alleged domestic dispute in Prince George in February. He’s slated to appear in court on both files today, when his sentencing on the Parkcrest matter is expected to wrap up.

Rotating strike means fewer mail-delivery days in Kamloops By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

“We’re itching to go out,” Nauss said of the roughly 220 postal employees in the region. She said the workers are just waiting for the call from union executives. A decision on which cities will see job action is made daily by 3 p.m. The CUPW had said it would drop its rotating strikes on the

condition the terms of its collective agreement would be reinstated. Canada Post rejected the offer. In April, members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPW), which represent 54,000 postal workers, voted 94.5 per cent in favour of striking to put pressure on reaching a new deal. According to media

reports, the union was asking for a four-year contract with wage increases of 3.3 per cent in the first year and 2.75 in years two and three. Officials with Canada Post told KTW in May proposals to the union include an annual wage increase, secure pension and a sick-leave program similar to management.

If you were waiting on an important piece of mail yesterday, it likely never showed up. That’s because Canada Post has adjusted delivery service to three days a week (Monday, Wednesday, Friday) to make up for the reduced volume of mail as a result of rotating strike action by postal workers. However, Patricia Nauss, the representative for the Canadian Union of Postal Workers in Kamloops, said there is plenty of mail to be delivered and called the service changes an attempt to “provoke” the union.

“There’s mail everywhere,” she told KTW, adding workers are “swamped” by the volume. As of Monday, June 13, all mail carriers who hold routes are being given an unscheduled and unpaid day off on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Only inside workers and relief carriers will be delivering parcels and priority mail on those days. Meanwhile, postal workers in the Kamloops area are waiting for their turn to walk off the job. So far, more than a dozen cities across Canada have been affected by the rotating strikes, which began on June 2.

Veronica and Atticus, the fantastic kids of KTW editor Christopher Foulds, probably weren’t aware of the rarefied athletic air they shared on the weekend at the B.C. Lions Fanfest. But, as the legends of receiver Geroy Simon (left) and quarterback Travis Lulay grow with every CFL season, the kids will one day look back and realize they met not only sporting royalty, but athletes who are simply awfully nice guys who, unlike so many pro stars today, take time to interact with their fans.

T’S HARD TO IMAGINE THE Vancouver Canucks throwing open the doors to their fans as the B.C. Lions did on the weekend at Hillside Stadium — and as the Canadian Football League club does every year during training camp. If they did, Canucks’ ownership would probably charge admission, jack up concession prices, threaten lawsuits against any fan carrying a homemade sign and permit autographs and conversations with players only through lawyer-approved intermediaries. Yes, the Canucks face Boston tonight in Game 7, with the winner claiming the Stanley Cup. It will be exciting and virtually all of the province will either be at the game, on the streets of Vancouver or glued to TVs elsewhere. While the Lions will never match the Canucks in popularity, the football club is unmatched in connecting with its fans — and the annual Fanfest on Sunday, June 12, was a shining example of a team that respects its fan base and bends over backwards to ensure its fans know it. Not only did the hundreds of kids attending get treated to a free T-shirt — a very cool B.C. Lion-orange Play With the Pros garment — and a free lunch, they were also brought onto the field following a 90-minute practice, where the Lions schooled the orange-clad juniors in a variety of football drills. For aspiring Leos playing in the Kamloops Community Football system, or for those kids who simply like to toss the pigskin in the backyard, the chance to step onto the pristine field at

MUSINGS Hillside and have actual Lions coach them had to be a surreal experience. Mixed with it all was face-painting, football tossing, a bouncy castle, merchandise sales, fantastic music by Swing Cat Bounce, food and a free draw for tickets to the last game at Empire Field on Sept. 10 against Toronto. A fan- and family-friendly day to mark the end of Week 1 of training camp also included a chance for Leo followers to meet Lions face-to-face, to talk to Geroy Simon, to joke with Paul McCallum, to ask Travis Lulay some questions on quarterbacking, to get an update on Paris Jackson’s injury — from Jackson himself. As the Lions fanned out across the field, fans lined up to chat, have their photos taken and collect autographs on everything from jerseys and footballs to hats and hirsute-less heads. And, with the sun beating down and the desire of fans to meet their heroes undiminished, the Leos stayed for as long as it took. During their practice, I sat on the sideline with my 12-year-old daughter

and 10-year-old son as they munched on their hot dogs and sipped their drinks. Gazing across the field, my daughter, who came to the event with great reluctance, was amazed at how fun the day had been — and even more amazed at how accessible the players were. “Well, they’re just like you and me,” I said. “Yeah, but they make millions of dollars and they are here, talking to us,” she replied. When I explained most of the Lions she had met were regular guys who earned not much more than many of their fans, and that many Lions held off-season jobs, my daughter was all the more impressed. In an era of unfortunate (mediainspired) creations such as Terrell Owens, Barry Bonds and Lebron James, the Lions — and the CFL in general — stand as refreshing beacons of what sport can and should be. In the process, one sunny afternoon showcasing the humility of the grassroots game can give birth to fans in a form as pure as other professional sports are often putrid. Of course, all televisions will be tuned into CBC tonight for the big game between the Canucks and Bruins. But, if you were at Sunday’s Fanfest and are curious as to how the players with whom you mingled look on the field of play, set your PVR for TSN2 (channel 147), which is broadcasting the Lions’ first pre-season game in Calgary tonight. Kickoff is 6:30 p.m.

Less than two weeks ago, KTW called Mike Grenier at Tobiano to ask him about the stalled marina project. The call was spurred by a call received from a Kamloops resident who was miffed at the fact Tobiano’s marina project was not materializing as advertised. When we spoke to Grenier about concerns relating to the marina, he said the project would be completed. Grenier also denied Tobiano was in financial difficulty, despite the fact there were five civil filings from the Bank of Montreal in B.C. Supreme Court in Vancouver on May 11. Instead, Grenier blamed the marina delay on changes in Canada’s economic and financing environment. “You don’t go to the bank of marina,” he said. “They [banks] look at something that is a floating-dock structure and they have a different perception. It takes a while to get people acquainted with the opportunity. That’s been part of the challenge.” Today, of course, the truth has emerged. Tobiano is in receivership as Grenier — through his Pagebrook and Kamlands Holdings — owes the Bank of Montreal nearly $26 million. Grenier told KTW this week failure to find financing for the marina ultimately led to him losing control of the massive development. While the bank and the company handling the receivership deal with the money, Tobiano residents and golfers on the fairways shouldn’t notice anything different. Here’s hoping investors come forward and bring tranquility to Kamloops Lake.

Editor: As we all are enjoying the Stanley Cup playoffs, a Polish company — KGHM — is in the process of developing a low-grade open-pit mine that will reach well within the boundaries of the City of Kamloops. According to its own project overview, the waste-rock management facility will be less than 2,000 metres from homes in Aberdeen and Pineview Valley. If you live in one of those areas, be prepared to endure 23 years of blasting, dust, noise and diesel exhaust — 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. If you live in the Lac le Juene area, be prepared to deal with 80 trips a day of huge and slow trucks as they transport their concentrate to the Coquihalla Highway on their way to the Coast. If you live in any of these areas, be prepared to take a major hit to your property values and quality of life. On the other hand, we can attend the Thursday, June 16, public open house at the Kamloops Towne Lodge, 1250 Rogers Way, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., and tell these guys we don’t want them in our backyards.

Re: Mental-health program changing, not closing: “Just part of the continuous downgrading of health care by the Interior Health Authority. “When the IHA was created, it closed about half the beds and, since then, has replaced only a few. “Other downgrades in care include replacing registered nurses in emergency rooms with licensed practical nurses and replacing licensed practical nurses with care-aides in long-term care homes. “The only thing there are more of are administrators who are known by bewildering titles, such as ‘professional practice leader’. “The IHA’s focus is on public relations, not health care. “Let’s follow Alberta’s lead and get rid of these top-heavy, bloated, wasteful, money-sucking monstrosities that have yet to save the taxpayer one cent. “They cost us in terms of money and our health.

I’m not a tech person, but perhaps someone could create a “Stop Ajax Mine” website. I hate foreseeing the destruction of an area I love and I feel this has to be fought and stopped in the early stages. It’s not only an environmental issue, it’s our quality of life, for we will see it, smell it, hear it and breathe it in.

The mine will get its water from Kamloops Lake, on which there is a proposed marina at Tobiano. How much water will it take for the 60,000 tons of mineral ore they plan to process per day? This mine will be an ugly blot for tourism and there are jobs in tourism if we keep Kamloops attractive. In the grasslands south of Kamloops, there are grouse, badgers, reintroduced burrowing owls, wildflowers and ponds that support a variety of species. The first of the Ministry of Environment meetings, where the public can voice its concern, takes

future growth. The mine will add more tax money to city coffers, but Kamloops will be so adversely affected that it will end up a loss. Remember when the pulp mill first came to town, promising not to pollute? We put up with stench for years and people moved away. There will be jobs created by the Ajax mine, but at what cost in the long run? When copper prices drop and the mine closes, there will be nothing left but ruined land. I have seen showcase restoration and actual restoration, which is an uneven mess of tumbled rocks and dirt in which stunted trees barely survive.

which is a substantial polluted body of water in which nothing can survive. It will seep into the groundwater, which travels downhill to Kamloops. Ajax has plans to divert Peterson Creek, so you can expect nasty toxins to sweep right through town with the high water, if any water is left. No more leisurely drives on Goose Lake Road, where there is presently grasslands and beautiful treed areas. As half of the proposed mine is within city limits, I hope city council will look to the future and fight this, as some of this land will be needed for

Kamloops drivers continue to flout road rules Kamloops drivers still aren’t getting the message about laws meant to do away with distracted driving, according to police. RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said a one-day enforcement blitz on Saturday, June 11 — targeting drivers not wearing a seatbelt and using their cellphones, among other infractions — resulted in nearly 100 tickets being issued. The operations were conducted at the intersections of Eighth Street and Fortune

POLICE BEAT

Drive and Third Avenue and Columbia Street. Mounties handed out 31 tickets for failing to wear seatbelts, 21 tickets for using a cellphone while driving, 39 tickets for intersection violations — running yellow lights or failing to stop at reds — and four other Motor Vehicle Act infractions. One car was also impounded during the blitz. Last month, police handed out more than 100 tickets during a similar operation — this one taking place over two days. On May 22 and May 23, RCMP set up covert operations at a number of high-traffic intersections, handing out 37 seatbelt tickets, 22 cellphone tickets and another 26 citations for intersection violations. Learned said another traffic-safety blitz is scheduled for later

this month. “Throughout the summer, traffic officers will continue their road-safety campaign with a strategic focus on seatbelt use, distracted driving and traffic-light violations at high-volume intersections,” he said.

No charges in hairpin head-on Neither alcohol nor speed were factors in an early-morning headon collision on the Summit Drive hairpin curve on Monday, June 13. Mounties say a white Jeep was travelling down the Summit Connector when the vehicle’s steering mechanism malfunctioned and the driver lost control. The Jeep crossed a concrete divider and sideswiped a Ford Mustang before colliding head-on with a Dodge Caravan. Several people suffered minor injuries. Police say no tickets were handed out and it’s not likely any charges will be laid.

Arson suspect released to Hillside Centre By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

THE COURTS

A psychiatrist will decide whether a Kamloops woman facing arson charges following a blaze at a North Shore apartment building last month can be held criminally responsible. Melody Joy Baum is facing one count of arson in relation to an inhabited property and another count of arson damaging property after fire tore through a thirdfloor suite in an apartment building at 111 Knox St. on May 30. The 51-year-old appeared briefly in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, June 13.

She has been in custody since turning herself in to police on June 1. On Monday, she was released on bail with a condition requiring she reside at the Hillside Psychiatric Centre. Defence lawyer Michelle Stanford said Baum will undergo testing to determine whether she can be found not criminally responsible by way of a mental disorder (NCRMD). Court heard Baum, as part of her NCRMD testing, will admit to

Prolific given ‘unorthodox’ sentence A prolific offender who has apparently cleaned up his act was given a big break in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, June 13. Peter Ritchie pleaded guilty to a curfew breach stemming from an incident in February in which PETER police RITCHIE checked the Kamloops motel room the 21-year-old was living in and found no sign of him. Ritchie was on two probation orders at the time, each with a curfew condition. “He has a number of convictions, especially in the last year or two,” said Crown prosecutor Alexandra Janse. He was added to the Kamloops RCMP’s prolific offender list last year, after “a brief but intense” period of criminal activity, Janse said. Ritchie, who has had substance-abuse issues in the past, has kept his nose clean since, completing a 28-day stay in a local detox

facility and now living in a recovery house in Kelowna. Someone with a record like Ritchie’s would usually receive a jail sentence for a probation breach. However, Janse suggested he be given a 60-day conditional sentence to allow him to further his recovery. “Mr. Ritchie has made significant strides in the last few months,” she said. “It may seem a bit unorthodox given his record, but I can tell you Mr. Ritchie has been watched very, very closely the last few months and he’s done well.” Provincial court Judge Jim Threlfall, who normally sits in Kelowna, but was filling in in Kamloops on Monday, placed Ritchie on a 60-day conditional sentence, with orders requiring him to report to his probation officer, abide by an 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew and abstain from drugs and alcohol. “Keep up the good work, Mr. Ritchie,” the judge said after handing down his sentence. “If you don’t, I’m in Kelowna, so you’ll be seeing me.”

No. 5 in a series

$10,000 bail. Shane Stitch was charged with uttering threats and killing an animal following an incident on Feb. 17 at the St. Paul Street home he shared with his girlfriend. Court heard the 34-year-old became involved in an argument with his girlfriend the previous night. She left to stay with a friend, but the two

talked on the phone a few hours earlier. During one conversation, Stitch is alleged to have told his girlfriend he was going to kill her cat if she didn’t come home. He is also alleged to have called relatives and told them the same thing. When his girlfriend returned home the following morning, court heard, the cat was dead.

Stitch admitted to killing the cat, but said it was an accident. He is alleged to have told police he was looking for something under the couple’s couch and accidentally dropped it on the pet. Court heard the cat had a crushed skull and crushed ribs. Stitch was detained on the same file last month. He made a new bail

application because a separate breach charge was stayed. Provincial court Judge Jim Threlfall granted Stitch bail on a $10,000 surety. It was unknown whether or not he had posted the $10,000 for bail as of KTW press time.

NDP sets nomination date By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The sooner the better. That’s the sentiment from the NDP’s Kamloops-North Thompson constituency president Rick Turner following word the party’s executive has given its blessing for a nomination meeting on July 23. “Waiting until the writ is dropped to pick your candidate is leaving it too late,” he said. The local constituency had planned a nomination meeting for June, but it was postponed by the party’s executive. Turner said the new date still gives the candidate a chance to get ready if a provincial election is called this fall. As it stands, NDP supporters in KamloopsNorth Thompson will likely have at least a pair of candidates to choose

Candidates to be selected on July 23 from as Cecile McVittie and Kathy Kendall have put their names forward as candidates. A third potential candidate is still considering his options. FightHST organizer Chad Moats said he is considering running for the nomination, but won’t make a final decision until the last minute. He said he wants to make sure he has the support and funding necessary to stage a campaign for the nomination. Aspiring candidates have until 5 p.m. on Thursday, June 16, to file their application. Turner noted Kendall’s bid has been approved by the party, while McVittie’s application is still being processed. Turner said three

other people have expressed interest in the job, but have yet to submit nomination papers. At the time of the postponement, Turner blamed himself for the delay, noting as president he hadn’t gone through the proper process needed to get approval from the provincial party for a nomination meeting. Now the plan is for the constituency to hold nominations in Clearwater and Barriere that day, then join Kamloops-South Thompson members for an meeting in the city. By combining the two nomination meetings, Turner said the ridings hope the turnout will be greater and attract a high-profile member to attend — quite possibly party

The Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure would like to advise the public that due to the Zopkios Brake Check Reconstruction Project, the Zopkios Brake Check on the Coquihalla Highway will be temporarily closed.

leader Adrian Dix. The race for the NDP nomination in Kamloops-South Thompson won’t be quite as close to call. Tom Friedman, who ran as the NDP candidate in the 2009 provincial election, is the only person to put his name forward. Kamloops-South Thompson constituency president Ruth Fane doesn’t expect anyone else to come forward before the deadline.

All southbound commercial vehicle traffic exceeding 5,500 kgs. will be required to stop at the temporary location. This site has limited space, so truck operators are asked to conduct their brake check as quickly as possible to allow room for the next vehicle. During the brake check closure there will also be a temporary speed zone for southbound traffic adjacent to the Zopkios Brake Check location. Commercial vehicles will be required to slow to 50 km/h, and all other traffic will be required to slow to 80 km/h from north of the southbound exit into Zopkios to past the onramp from Zopkios part-way down Snowshed Hill. Your patience during this work is appreciated.

COVER PAGE STORY

Despite turmoil, tee times continue XFrom A17

The banks passed on financing the marina, while a pair of applications to the federal and provincial governments for grant funding was rejected. “They did not allow us to advance the marina, which would have been the next logical step in this successful project,” Grenier said. Despite the financial turmoil, it’s expected to be business as usual for the golf course and residents living at Tobiano. Douglas Chivers, a representative with the Bowra Group, said the company intends to continue to operate the resort and golf course. “It’s in no way shut down,” he said. Though Chivers couldn’t give specific details on the future of Tobiano, noting the process is still in its early stages, he said the receiver could sell the resort to a new owner as a whole or sell individual lots. “There’s a lot of options and possibilities,” he said. Chivers noted it’s the court-ordered receiver’s role to take possession

of the assets in an effort to operate, assess and recover those assets to repay creditors. He also pointed out the resort isn’t technically in bankruptcy, noting the court appointment was facilitated by the application of its secured creditors. Bankruptcy involves a different set of laws. As the court-appointed receiver works out the resort’s financial troubles, the local tourism industry is pulling for the golf course to

succeed. Tourism Kamloops CEO Lee Morris was surprised to learn the resort was in financial trouble, but is pleased to hear the golf course will remain open. She said Tobiano is very important to the overall golf product in Kamloops, noting the resort has been a factor in getting consumers to come to the area. “I think it really helped take us to the next level as a golf destination,” she said.

LOCAL NEWS

Spend summer with a book Summer is approaching and, with it the inevitable complaints from the kids about boredom and the overwhelming lack of anything at all to do. Canadians’ on-the-go lifestyle makes it challenging for caregivers to keep their children entertained all day during the summer months. There are a few fun and easy daily activities that can keep kids engaged and busy without plopping them in front of the television or playing video games: • Challenge artistic talents: Document your precious outdoor summer memories by creating a summer scrapbook. Kids can stay busy by taking photos of the things they’ve done or places they’ve been and write a journal entry about their day. At the end of the summer, this will be a great keepsake for the family. • Get outdoors and learn about nature: Pack a picnic and visit the local conservation area for a light hike and see how nature

unfolds. Be on the lookout for ponds or other water bodies that might have some interesting wildlife. Just don’t forget to lather on the sunscreen first. • Keep those brains active: School is just around the corner, so it’s important to keep young minds fresh. Sign them up for a fun summer program like the reading clubs at the library. These programs encourage kids to participate in free, fun summer reading activities, which means they’ll bring books home to read and occupy their time. Whatever your summer days hold, great summer memories can be made and young minds can be engaged through fun and educational activities. newscanada. com

Roger that! Merritt’s Sloan wins the Western By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Roger Sloan is no Chi Chi Rodriguez when it comes to celebrating. Instead of wielding his putter like a sword and dancing around the green as though he was Zorro after tapping in to win the Western Championship at Rivershore Estate and Golf Links, the 24-yearold from Merritt calmly acknowledged the crowd — then he hugged his parents. “My mom always jokes, ‘Make sure that your first win comes when I’m around,’” said Sloan, who was followed by his mother, Cathy, and sisters, Valerie and Karlie, from start to finish on Sunday, June 12. “Don’t take no reaction on No. 18 [as though] this isn’t meaningful to me, because it really is, it’s really special for me to win here,” he said. Sloan’s four-day, 23-under par total — 265 (64-70-6566) — was three shots better than that of the Western’s runner-up, Stuart Anderson of Victoria, who fired a 65 on Sunday. The Merritt product’s only bogey of the tourney — yes, he made only one bogey — came on the par-4 ninth in first-round play. It looked like a 60-hole bogey-less streak might come to

an end on Sunday on Hole 16 when Sloan, who was only two shots in the clear at the time, sprayed his tee shot right, into the fescue. Sloan’s caddy at the Western was his father, Curtis. They had a decision to make on the challenging par 4 — should Roger try to clear a water hazard and go for the green from the thick, wet rough, or lay up and attempt to get up and down for par? “The big thing is he hadn’t bogeyed since the ninth hole on the first day but, at the same time, you have to say, ‘Hey, that’s not important anymore,’” Curtis said after Sunday’s round. “What’s important here is winning the tournament.” A crowd of about 75 watched as the blondelocked sharpshooter stuck his approach shot to about five feet and drained the putt for par. The conservative decision to chip out of the rough was made after a five-or-so minute conversation between Sloan and his father in the rough on 16. Curtis deserves credit for pulling back on his confident son’s reins. “That was my caddy’s call,” Sloan said. “It’s a shot where I could go back right now and I could probably pull it off. But, to lay up there was definitely the prudent decision.” Sloan’s clutch tee shot on the par-3 17th led to a birdie, which

gave the Merritt secondary graduate a three-shot cushion heading to the 18th tee. He made a two-putt par on the par-5 18th to close the book on a tournament he will never forget. Scott Hawley of Ottawa and Josh Habig of San Diego tied for third at 19-under par. Sloan’s victory came with it a few perks — a trophy, a bull-shaped belt buckle and, oh yeah, a cheque for $20,000. He now sits second on the Canadian Professional Golf Tour’s money list with $31,532.00. Jose de Jesus Rodriguez, who has played two more events than Sloan this season, is in first place with $52,969.55. It would be easy to gloat about his performance but, in Sloan’s mind, the victory at Rivershore is just the start of something special. “It’s just part of a process to get myself to the top-20 in the world,” Sloan said. “This is just another step. It’s like graduating from high school.” Just a step in the process it might have been but, judging by his mother’s words, it’s one Sloan and his family will treasure for a long time to come. “I’m so proud of him,” an emotional Cathy told KTW. “We’re so proud of him.”

Cathy Sloan hugged her son Roger after he tapped in on Hole 18 to win the inaugural Western Championship at Rivershore Estate and Golf Links on Sunday, June 12. The Merritt golfer took home a $20,000 cheque. Marty Hastings/KTW

Speed-skating Spence sisters are cyclists, too By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Tori Spence (left) has already qualified to cycle for Team B.C. at the Western Canada Summer Games, which get underway in August. Her sister, Josie, is on the short list of girls being considered for a spot on the squad.

The Spence family is best known for its speed-skating talent, but it’s their cycling abilities that might take centre stage in Kamloops at the Western Canada Summer Games (WCSG) in August. Tori Spence, who turns 19 on Sunday, June 19, has already earned one of five spots on Team B.C.’s female cycling squad and her sister, Josie, 17, is on the short list. “Personally, I think that she will make it because she has the strength and we both have the racing mentality from short track,”

said Tori, who competed alongside her sister for Team B.C. in speedskating competition at the Canada Winter Games in Halifax in February. “It’s not like we’re totally unfamiliar with how to prepare for the races.” The choice, however, is not Tori’s to make. Team B.C.’s head coach Jeff Ain will make the final decision. “All three of the Spence sisters are obviously incredibly talented athletes in both summer and winter sports,” Ain told KTW. “They came off of long and very successful speed-skating campaigns this past winter

and straight onto bikes where they were all competitive in the selection process for WCSG.” The youngest Spence sister, Sara, 15, struggled through injury throughout the spring evaluation camps and did not receive enough points to be considered for the team. Ain got one last look at the seven short-listed female riders — Tori, Josie, Kristin Drygas, Gillian Ellsay, Jasmin Glaesser, Christy Moser and Amanda Wakeling — at an evaluation camp in Kamloops on June 4 and June 5. Ain said he will name the team and its alternate members “in the next couple weeks.”

Contact Bill Bilton, Jr.

Welcome to Day 1, Lesson 1. In this first lesson, I am going to teach you, in my opinion, 80 per cent of how to strike a golf shot well without telling you one thing about the physical swing itself. The secret lies in the address position with five key fundamentals — grip, posture, stance, ball position and aim. Players without these fundamentals are simply hoping to hit good shots. I want all of my students to expect to hit good shots. We are going to cover grip, posture and stance in the first lesson. A good grip starts by placing the club diagonally across the fingers of the top hand so that, when you close your hand, the V-shape formed by the thumb and forefinger points to your right shoulder. The bottom hand goes on the grip more across the middle of the fingers, but the V-shape will still point to your right shoulder. You may then interlock the baby finger of your bottom hand with the pointer finger of the top hand, or overlap the baby finger on top of the pointer finger. Grip pressure should be light, with no tension in your forearms. A good checkpoint is to look

down at your top hand and you should see the first knuckle of the first two fingers — if the top hand is on the grip correctly, the palm of your bottom hand should be facing the palm of the top hand. Posture in the set-up is very important because you need to be set in a position that will allow you to use the big muscles of your body effectively — shoulders, core and quadriceps, specifically. The width of a golf stance varies depending on the club of choice, so we will presume that you are setting up with a 7-iron for now. We start by taking a shoulderwidth stance. In this case we would set our feet apart so that the outside of our shoulders would line up with the middle of our feet. Knees are flexed so that the end of the knee cap is over the middle of your shoe laces. Next, bend from the waist, keeping your spine nice and straight, until your shoulders are slightly in front of your toes. Body weight should be dis-

tributed with 50 per cent on each foot but, more specifically, on the balls of your feet. I like to see the knees pointing in just a little. This should bring a little body weight to the inside of your feet/ stance, which will help promote a better turn when we get into swing mechanics. Once set with your body, you can now let your arms hang freely from your shoulders. You will find that your hands are about five or six inches away from your left thigh. A few deep breaths will take away any tension. Next week, we will finish the address position with ball position and how to take dead aim.

Clapp deserves a standing O Local golfer turns himself in at qualifier, disqualified STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

Brad Clapp didn't win the Western Championship on the weekend, but he can now lay claim to playing the most expensive golf shot in Kamloops this year. The 24-year-old assistant professional at Sun Rivers Golf Course was disqualified on the first hole of the Western Championship's Monday (June 6) qualifier after he used his trusty Bushnell rangefinder. "I looked over and he had it up to his eyes, peering through it, getting the exact yardage," said Scott Allan, who was caddying for Clapp at the Canadian Professional Tour tournament qualifier. "As much as I wanted to say, 'Whoa, Brad, they're not allowed in this event,' I wasn't 100 per cent. "I looked at him and said, 'Are those legal in this event?' "He looked at me really shocked and said, 'What's the rule sheet say?'" Golf's rule book contains 34 entries. Rule 14-3 B, which

outlaws the use of devices used to measure distance, among other things, was in effect at Rivershore Estate and Golf Links. "I'm sure some of the guys out there would maybe think, 'Oh, well nobody saw it," Allan said. Some golfers might have put the device back in the bag and kept playing, but that's not what Clapp did. He immediately told his playing partner what happened. Clapp was forced to pick up his ball and walk alongside his competitor, who played out the first hole. A dejected-feeling Clapp then trudged back to the clubhouse with Allan to explain what transpired — he had disqualified himself on the first hole of a qualifier for a professional tournament, which was to be held in his hometown. "It was about a 350yard walk from the first hole to the clubhouse," Clapp said. "It took longer than I wanted." On Tuesday, June 7, Clapp learned 17 players, some of whom shot as high as 77, qualified

for the Western — a host of them were his local golfing buddies. "That day was a long day for me," Clapp said. "Shooting the scores [my friends] do and shooting the scores I usually do, that was a tough one to see. It took me another day to not be mopey." The range finder blues had subsided significantly by Wednesday, June 8, when Clapp embarked on a 24-hour golf-athon to raise money for ALS patient services. "I was joking about it by then," Clapp said. "I brought out the Bushnell. If I can make a joke of myself now, it's pretty much in the past." At Rivershore, Clapp read the tournament rules 10 minutes before teeing off, but could not abstain from adhering to his pre-shot routine after an errant drive on the first hole. "I like to do the same routine before I swing because it keeps me calm and focused," he said. "That's part of my routine, to grab that piece of equipment and use it." Clapp paid $225 to enter the qualifier, in

which he played only one shot. "That was a big opportunity for me," Clapp said. "It would have been the biggest tournament I would have played in. The sad thing is that's probably the most confident I've been in three years." Clapp will no doubt be champing at the bit to qualify for the Western when it returns next year (all signs point to the event coming back to Kamloops in 2012). Needless to say, his rangefinder won't be making the trip. "Brad will have countless more opportunities to prove himself with his golfing talents, but he only has a few opportunities in life to prove to his friends, family and fellow Canadian PGA Professionals that he truly is a man of strong integrity," said Allan, the owner of GreenGolf Designs, a company that designs golf websites. "I am proud to know Brad and even more proud to witness his true character."

Janes: Western will likely return to Rivershore By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The chances of the Western Championship returning to Rivershore Estate and Golf Links in 2012 are “pretty good,” says tour commissioner Rick Janes. “We had a very good meeting today with some key people from the organizing committee,” Janes said on Sunday, June 12. “We just need a few months to put together the finances to make it financially viable.” What the tournament really needs is a title sponsor. “That would do it,” Janes said. The Canadian Tour fronted the $125,000

purse at this year’s event. That is not likely to happen again next year. Janes said the addition of a third tour event in B.C. (there are two

now, the Western and the Times Colonist Open in Victoria) might attract potential sponsors. “There’s some chance we’ll have

three events in British Columbia, which makes it pretty attractive for a sponsor to be part of that kind of circuit in this province,” Janes said.

These Folk are oddly committed

Newlyweds Lauren Mann and Zoltan Szoges balance each other in music — and life By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER

reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

MUSICAL MARRIAGE INSPIRED LAUREN MANN TO COMMIT. About a year ago, she and longtime friend Zoltan Szoges tied the knot — in their relationship and in music — when they married. “He [Szoges] made me think I could do this as a fulltime gig,” Mann said. Mann is the singer, songwriter, ukulele player and pianist of Lauren Mann and the Fairly Odd Folk. She said Szoges has the business brain of the duo, but he also plays backup instruments, including percussion and the melodica.

She said she didn’t have business sense before Szoges came along. “Never order 200 shirts at a time,” Mann said, chuckling about just one of the lessons she learned from Szoges. Mann has enjoyed touring with her husband. “We dream together about what we can do,” she said. The balance between creative and business has allowed them to visit many places, one of Mann’s favourite aspects of touring. They have more than 80 under their belt since last August. Playing with various artists who become her Fairly Odd Folk, the couple has toured throughout Canada and the U.S. promoting her album Stories from Home. The album is a compilation of songs Mann recorded

from 2006 to 2009 as a collection of tales from her life. The next album is expected to be released early next year. With Szoges’ influence, Mann’s music has gone from being burned on her computer to being recorded with Aaron Marsh of the alternative-rock band Copeland. “It was a big deal for me,” Mann said about working with Marsh. “It’s someone I’ve always looked up to.” After spending seven weeks in Florida recording the new album — what Mann called a break — they hit the road again on their Summer of Colour tour. They will be stopping at The Art We Are, 246 Victoria St., with Reeves, a band from Quesnel, on Monday, June 20. The show starts at 7 p.m. and admission is free.

Win some, lose some KAG won’t receive provincial grant, while KSO gets large pot of change from federal government By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Listen to the groan coming from the folks at Kamloops Art Gallery (KAG). It’s a combination reaction to the news a provincial grant will not be received this year and the belt-tightening the loss of that money requires. KAG executive director Jann Bailey said the $36,500 grant from provincial gambling proceeds has been discontinued. That, coupled with the loss of a JANN B.C. Arts Council BAILEY grant of $5,000 means the gallery will not be replacing a laid-off staff position. It will continue with reduced hours of operation, produce just one publication a year rather than the previous two and reduce its acquisition program. Bailey said she was surprised at the grant loss, given the province added $1.5 million into arts funding to be dispersed throughout B.C. The gallery will continue to rely on the Canada Council for its funding, but Bailey noted that becomes challenging because, with the reduced cashflow, the institution is not able to do many of the things it’s required to do in order to keep getting the money. Kamloops-South Thompson

MLA Kevin Krueger said he realizes the arts “contribute every which way to make people happy and fulfilled and live longer,” but the reality is the province is in a deficit position. That means first focusing resources on key areas like education, social services and health care. KEVIN KRUEGER He praised the KAG staff for its ability “to leverage a little grant into a whole lot of support.” Krueger — who noted he donates to the gallery, symphony and theatre in Kamloops — said he understands members of the local arts community being upset about the grant loss, but noted the money “is a grant for a reason. It’s not guaranteed. “When people are used to receiving something, they react when it changes.” Bailey praised both Krueger and Mayor Peter Milobar for the work they do to promote the arts and culture in the city, noting studies have shown for every dollar spent in her sector, there is a $5 or $6 spinoff to the economy. “So, not having that $36,5000 is a lot of money not coming to this community.” Meanwhile, as the gallery worried about the grant loss, the staff at the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra were celebrating receiving — through the Kamloops Foundation —

of $114,167 from the federal government. The money is to be administered for the symphony by the foundation. It comes through the Canada Cultural Investment Fund, which matches dollar for dollar local donations. The foundation administers about 120 endowment funds, including one for the KSO. Bailey said she was delighted to learn the sister cultural organization was benefitting, noting its staff and volunteers work hard in the same tough economic times to generate donations. The art gallery does not qualify for the matching federal funds, she said, because that program is not open to visual arts. In an email response, Genevieve Myre, media relations officer for the federal Department of Cultural Heritage explained: “There is currently no endowment matching program for heritage organizations, which include art galleries and museums. However, the Department of Canadian Heritage has a variety of programs that support art galleries and museums, such as the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund, Young Canada Works in Heritage Organizations, and the Museums Assistance Program. “The Canada Council for the Arts, a portfolio agency of the Department of Canadian Heritage, also directly supports visual artists in a variety of ways.”

Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much more on the standard and optional equipment lists, best explored at leisure on Lincolnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website. Under the hood, the MKT offers a choice of two powerplants. A 3.7-litre, 24-valve V6 engine makes 268 horsepower at 6,500 r.p.m. and 267 poundfeet of torque at 4,250 r.p.m. In the old days, Lincoln would probably have offered an optional V8 as a more potent step up

in power. But, now that Ford has rediscovered the power and fuelefficiency rewards of turbocharging, that role has been assumed by Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Ecoboost lineup, in this case, a twinturbocharged 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 offering V8 power numbers with V6 fuel economy. This engine, as tested, delivers a classleading 355 horsepower at 5,700 r.p.m. While not quite up to the original conceptâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 415-horsepower aspirations, it is more

AUTOMARKET VW has new Golf concept

Need a Car? Have Poor Credit?

EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN

At the recent GTI meeting in Worthersee, Germany, Volkswagen unveiled the Golf R Cabriolet as a concept car with 270 horsepower of power and a top speed of 250 km/h. Volkswagen just recently introduced the new Golf Cabriolet and the designers and engineers of Volkswagen have already come up with a sporty variant of this model, the Golf R Cabriolet Concept. The R Cabriolet concept races to the 100 km/h mark in less than six seconds making it the fastest open-top Golf ever. Like the closed-top Golf R, the cabriolet was lowered by 25 millimetres via a sport chassis. A 17-inch brake system with internally ventilated discs at all wheels and blue-painted high-performance

brake calipers (including R-logo) enables impressive deceleration values. Making contact to the road surface on the Golf R Cabriolet Concept are 19-inch Talladega alloy wheels with size 235 tires. Naturally, the Golf R Cabriolet Concept also

presents an especially sporty interior concept. Motorsport shell seats in dark blue carbon leather, combined with high-end nappa leather in pure grey set the tone. The backs of the shell seats are painted in black piano paint. Upholstery piping

and decorative seams provide for colour contrast. Carbon accents emphasize the concept’s technical-sporty character. The sand blasted aluminum doorsill plates with black piano paint inlays display finely crafted workmanship.

Limited headroom one drawback Ford Canada elected to make all-wheel drive standard across the lineup. The AWD system works seamlessly with myriad dynamic technologies to provide a smooth and seamless driving experience. Also standard on MKT models with EcoBoost, an electric power-assist steering (EPAS) system replaces the traditional hydraulic

power-steering pump. This intelligent system constantly measures steering input to adapt to changing road conditions and can even compensate for road crowning or crosswinds. The EPAS system allows active park assist to offer hands-free parallel parking. I just don’t have the space to list all the features of the MKT, although you can see some of the options added to this tester on

the pricing listed. Yes, the styling is different and the sloping roof does limit headroom in the third row, so the MKT’s boxier Ford Flex cousin — no slouch itself in available options and technology, might also be worth considering — although both designs are so polarizing it really comes down to personal choice. The Lincoln MKT was a pleasure to drive, marvellously quiet and

comfortable, the kind of vehicle that would take all of the stress out of a long cross-country trip. This is why you will soon be seeing them in limousine livery as they take over from the Town Car. And, with an almost limitless slate of standard and optional features, and with qualities to rival any competitor, the 2011 Lincoln MKT is a grand tourer worthy of consideration.

FATHER’S DAY The Canadian

How-To-People

Doing it right www.rona.ca

E T A M I T UL ’S DAY GIFTS! FATHER

Don’t forget grandfather If you think dads feel neglected after years of forgotten Father’s Day fanfare, grandfathers feel it even more. Every Mother’s Day, we lavish our mothers and grandmothers with heartfelt cards and flowers but, when Father’s Day rolls around, we hardly remember to call. Though most men will often shrug that “it’s no big deal,” you’ve vowed to make things better this year. Get inspired with these gift ideas. • Quality time with you: Most grandfathers would prefer spending time with their loved ones to a cheesy joke card and No. 1 grandpa tie. Tear out a page from your day planner

and literally give your whole day to grandpa, participating in his favourite activities like fishing or birdwatching. Or, buy tickets to watch a concert, movie, stand–up comic or sports event together. • Donate in his honour: Show your appreciation to your grandfather and all the ways he helped to shape you into who you’ve become. Charities like Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (ccfcanada.ca) offer valuable gift items, like fruit trees, mosquito nets, clean water wells, and business loans to help struggling families overseas. You can customize a card for your grandpa and show him how his

generosity inspired you to help others. • Mp3 player: Rummage through his old vinyl records and cassette tapes and find matching mp3s to load onto a player. Then, show grandpa how to use his new gadget so he can enjoy music he loves on–the– go. • Photo gifts: Load all your favourite photos of children and grandchildren into a digital picture frame. Or frame a collage print of your favourite memories for display. Your grandfather is probably not expecting anything from you, but a simple gift can touch his heart and will show him how much his support has meant to you. newscanada.com

FATHER’S DAY

Gift ideas for the stressed–out dads Hard times may mean dad is staying later at the office, losing sleep, and occasionally phasing out during conversations. Your father works hard and does his best to keep the family afloat in the roller coaster of life. This Father’s Day, don’t

forget to show him your appreciation with these meaningful gifts: • Sports equipment, activity classes or a gym membership: Pending layoffs and the rising cost for gas, food and services are stressors that can cause long–term health issues if they are not

addressed. Exercise is a great way to relieve stress and keep the heart healthy. Commit to joining dad at the gym with a membership, install a basketball hoop outside the house or enrol your parents in a ballroom dance class (Note: this may be more of a gift for mom). • Perspective gifts: Sometimes dads need to be reminded that there is a big world out there. Camping under the stars together or watching a meaningful documentary about the Earth is a great way to do this. You can also make a donation in dad’s honour to a charity. Your dad will feel good about improving the life of someone in need and it may get him to look at his own problems in a different light. • A “few of his favourite things” bucket: Fill a large bowl or container with some of dad’s favourite snacks, movies, drinks and seasonings. If your dad likes spicy food, get a special hot sauce

you think he will enjoy. If he prefers cashews over almonds, make note of it when you’re out shopping.

Your dad will be touched that you’ve been paying attention to him and will appreciate being able to

It’s Happening!

FATHER’S DAY

Dad can give family gift of health The last thing on a man’s to-do list is likely a visit to the doctor. But regular check-ups and monitoring of health can be the best gift for ensuring optimal health. For example, prostate cancer is the most-common cancer in Canadian men and can often be cured or managed successfully when caught early. Many men with this disease never have symptoms, do not receive therapy and eventually die of other causes. Therefore, it’s important for men to add health care to their task list:. “It is quite natural for men over 60 to experience physical changes,” said Dr. Doug Tkachuk at LifeLabs, a leading diagnostic-test centre. “Most discomforts are not life– threatening, but it is important to monitor even minor changes. Expert opinion is required because some of the symptoms of prostate cancer are similar to those of normal aging. “Urination is a good illustration of this. As a man gets older, the prostate may become enlarged and block the urethra, or bladder. An enlarged prostate is a common condition called BPH

[benign prostatic hyperplasia], but BPH is not cancer. On the other hand, a tumour on the prostate can also press on the urethra making it difficult to pass urine, so medical testing is required to confirm a diagnosis.” When problems arise, the key prostate symptoms to monitor are inability to urinate, intensely needing to urinate, a sense of incompletely emptying the bladder, the need to urinate often, especially at night, blood in the urine or semen, weak, decreased or interrupted urine stream and painful ejaculation. You can’t change some of the risk factors for prostate cancer such as your age, ancestry, or family history, but you can control how you take care of yourself with food and exercise. Obesity is being studied as a possible risk for prostate cancer. Insisting on a program of regular aerobic exercise plus a nutritious daily diet low in saturated fat and high in fibre, vegetables and fruit is a smart thing to do for overall good health. newscanada.com

Aberdeen Mall and Royal Inland Hospital Foundation staff celebrate the shopping centre’s $30,000 donation to a campaign to help pay for a new intensive-care unit at the hospital. The amount recognizes the 30th anniversary of the mall.

The Butler Says: Make memories this summer! We have the BEST DEALS, the LOWEST PRICES and the

$30,000 boosts ICU campaign Aberdeen Mall has joined Team Recchi in the bid to raise money for the new intensive-care unit at Royal Inland Hospital. Kamloops’ largest mall has donated $30,000 to the Mark Recchi 365 Day Challenge, which began on Feb. 14 with the goal of raising $2 million in one year. To date, the campaign has raised almost $1 million, thanks to individual donors, Aberdeen Mall, Telus and Zimmer Wheaton. Aberdeen Mall general manager Donna Markin said the $30,000 donation fit with the fact the mall is celebrating its 30th anniversary. “We are extremely excited about joining the ranks with the Team Recchi 365 Day Challenge,” Markin said. “With 30 years under our belt, we thought it was a great way to give back to our community.” Supporters of the campaign can help by using their cellphones. Text the word “RIHF” to 30333 and a $10 donation will be added to your next mobile-phone bill. With a $10 donation, your name can be put on a puck and added to the eight-foot Team Recchi jersey on the second floor, outside the Royal Inland Hospital Foundation’s office at the hospital. • The ICU fund also benefits from the 14th annual South Central Trucking and Industry’s charity golf tournament, which raised $87,000 at the event at Rivershore Golf Links. To date, the association has raised about $1.4 million for various programs at RIH.

SYLVIA (SYLVI) OLSEN June 16, 1919 - June 6, 2011 It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our cherished mother, grandmother, auntie and friend, Sylvia just ten days before her 92nd birthday. Sylvia leaves her son Don Hill (Penny) of Vernon and three grandsons, Jody, Sean and Kevin Hill. Sylvia also leaves her step daughterin-law Anita Olsen and Anita's children Adrienne and Desmond (Eriko) Olsen; as well as her step daughter Shelley Reeves and Shelley's children Samantha and Jackie Reeves. In addition Sylvia leaves six devoted nieces and nephews and their families: Sylvia Heath, Jerry Latvala (Kay), Eddie Latvala (Jackie), Ann Lewis (Earl), Sandra Gerrard and Audrey Vaile. Sylvia was predeceased by her husband Philip Olsen, her daughter Carol Hill, her sister Siiri and Siiri's husband Gus Latvala, her niece Shirley Latvala, her mother Sandra Honkanen and Sandra's husband Richard; her brother Oiva Saatela, her father John Saatela and her stepson Garry Olsen. Sylvia was born in Rossland, BC and educated in Kimberley before moving to Vancouver as a young woman. She married and worked with her first husband Jack Hill on fishing boats before raising her two children. After her children were grown, she returned to Kimberley and married her high school sweetheart, Philip. They lived in Kimberely until Phil passed away in 1998. In 2003, Sylvia made her final move to Kamloops, to be more centrally located to all family. Niece Audrey Vaile and great niece, Sherry Robinson continued to provide support to Sylvia in her final years. Family often referred to Sylvia as "our special lady". She shared many stories of adventuring outdoors camping, hiking and skiing. She enjoyed dancing, and travelling and maintained a very limber body by practicing yoga. She was also appreciated for passing on her Finnish heritage and family memories. Sylvia was always fully engaged with life and a passionate animal lover, especially her beloved cats. She devoted many hours of volunteer time in all of the communities she lived in and was always willing and able to help her family and friends. Sylvia was very friendly, taking time to relate to people of all ages and made many friends throughout life. By Sylvia's request, there will be no service. Any remembrance donations may be made to the SPCA, 1211 – 8th Street, Kamloops, BC V2B 2Y3. Condolences may be expressed at www.schoenings.com

It was there that Dad graduated from high school, and went on to pursue a career in Forestry. He began his career with the BC Forest Service in Nelson, BC. It was in 1957 that he met the love of his life, our mother Anne whom he adored, and affectionately called his Angel and little Miss Sunshine. In 1958 they were married and made a big move away from their family in Trail to Prince George, BC where he took a position in the drafting office with the BC Forest Service. They missed their family in the Kootenays but it wasn’t long before they started their own family. Daughter Shirley was born in 1959, with their son Ollie following a short time later in 1960, and youngest son Michael in 1964. Their family was complete. During their time in the north they met many very special people some that became life long friends. In 1969 Dad packed up the family and accepted a Drafting Superintendent position in Kamloops with the Ministry of Forests. The move was hard at first, the summer heat was a change from the cooler northern weather, but the bonus was that the winters were shorter and milder. Dad and Mom settled in and enjoyed the shorter commute to family in Trail. They embraced all that the interior had to offer. Dad was proud of the work he did for the Ministry of Forests for 35 wonderful years, and many of his former employees said he was the best boss they ever had!! Dad’s love for the outdoors, animals, nature and prospecting was surpassed

Thank You

Others Who Have Gone Before

Breakthrough

By Joanetta Hendel, Indianapolis, Indiana

by Nel de Keijzer

Others who have gone before Hold up my trembling hand. They comfort me in the blind despair I cannot understand. They suffer with me when I hurt, Weep with me in my pain, Remind me that we are not lost ... Though I must now remain. Those who’ve gone before me, Hear me when I cry. Sing softly with me soothing chords Of unsung lullabies. Mourn anniversaries never marked, A future I cannot keep. They gently kiss the pain away, And love my heart to sleep. The ones who’ve gone before me Hold me in my dreams. They gently stroke my furrowed brow, And calm my silent screams. They love me in my heartache, Wait quietly nearby., Hold patiently, one to another Till I join them by and by.

Santa Barbara, California We would like to thank everyone for the support and encouragement shown to our family during the illness and passing of Hans Weisbrich. In particular we would like to thank the management and staff of Fortune Safeway store and a special thank you is extended to Elli. To our family, friends, and neighbours, thank you for your love, care, and support, we received. Also thank you for the cards, flowers, fruit baskets, sausages (Hans’ favorite!), baking, Mass Intentions, and messages of support and condolences. Hans was an excellent husband, father and grandfather, but above all a true friend to so many.

only by the love for his family. He was a quiet spoken man, with a kind heart who lived his life with a profound sense of values, it is those values that we his children admired the most. Dad so enjoyed traveling with mom, and just being with mom….they were meant for each other, he would do anything with her and for her. Dad enjoyed time spent camping with his family, family dinners, hunting and fishing trips with his sons, and grandsons Zach, Ryan and Drew. His granddaughters Alanna and Sara were his darling little girls….. always smiling and free with the hugs when their Papa was around – he never got enough of those hugs that he loved so much. He was a great spectator and avid fan at his grandchildren’s many sporting events, and was even known to brag a little about each and every one of them. The last few years Dad experienced many health problems but was never one to complain, or burden others. He was the best husband, father and friend anyone could ask for. Until we meet again Dad, thanks for being the best!! We will miss your presence amongst us, but the memories you created will be with us forever, wherever we are. Rest in Peace!! Oh Great Spirit, let your winds be gentle and your skies be heavy, let there be a blanket of fresh snow to track the Antlered One as did my forefathers, and grant that I find him with antlers like a tree, branches wide and mighty. Grant that my hand be steady, my aim be true, and my drag short. But most of all grant that my children, and their children, and their children’s children have the wisdom to preserve your work in the forest, field, and stream, so that they too can one day hunt the Antlered One in the footsteps of their forefathers.” Special Thanks to Dr. Waller, Dr. Nair, Dr. Michaud, Mr. Zentner, the exceptional Nurses at RIH 7 North, the special Doctors and nurses in the RIH Emergency Department, BC Ambulance Service , Kamloops Fire and Rescue and the many special friends and relatives that helped us all in our time of need. Your caring, your hugs and your many special gestures, they did not go unnoticed, they were very thoughtful and greatly appreciated. Our family is also so grateful for the loving support and care that “our Angel” Laura Tjader gave Dad these past few weeks. We can’t thank you enough Laura, your love and nurturing brought Dad, as well as all of us much peace and comfort. We could not have got through this without you!! Love you always!! At Dad’s request there will be no formal service, A celebration of life will be held at a latter date. In dad’s memory please remember him by helping someone you care about, a person, a pet or a stranger. Should friends and family so desire in lieu of flowers, please donate to the MS Society of Canada – Kamloops Chapter, 180 – 546 St. Paul Street, Kamloops, BC V2C 5T1 For more information call 250-314-0773 or email Info.kamloops@ mssociety.ca Arrangements entrusted to John Moore and his staff at Personal Alternative Funeral Services 250-554-2324. Thank you John!!

The tears of grief Have washed away The clouds of sorrow, And vision now is clarified I miss you still, But see you new In light of joy And smile at your remembrance. The love we shared Still here to give And to experience The joy that comes from that, IS YOU!!

Thank you Hans, for all the great memories. We will keep you in our hearts always. Sincerely, Suzy Weisbrich and families

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

Of beautiful birds in circling flight. 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.

Lets Make Cancer History

HANS CARSTENSEN

Hans, as he was known to most people came to Canada in 1952. He spent many years in Quebec & Manitoba working with heavy mining equipment. When Lornex Mining Corp. was under construction in 1970 Hans moved to BC. He was one of the first shop foremen at the mine. He also was the third person to move into the newly constructed town of Logan Lake. Some people will remember the great parties in his house. Fifteeen years ago his loving partner Wera joined him and took good care of him as he got older. Hans passed away two days before his 92 birthday. He sure will be missed by many. Hans is survived by his partner Wera Drescher, his sons Uwe Carstensen and wife Maria, Carl Friedridh Carstensen, Claus Carstensen and Tochter, Wenke, Hauke Carstensen and wife Ina.

Since we originally teamed up with local businesses to introduce our campaign to create a $1,000 scholarship to a deserving local student, a couple of interesting things have happened. First, we have been overwhelmed by not just the number of entries, but also by the quality of the submissions. We are reviewing and judging each entry and will announce the winners on Friday, June 17. That’s right — winners, plural, as in more

than one. We will have winners, not just a winner, thanks to Princess Auto in Valleyview, which has climbed onboard with a second generous offer. Princess has decided to match the original $1,000 scholarship, thereby creating two $1,000 education gifts to deserving students attending accredited schools. We thank all of these participating businesses in aiding deserving local students in their further development.
