HALLWAY IS HOME AT RIH

Take me to the river — just don’t go in

By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Stay out of the river — that placid-looking Thompson is churning under the surface and can pose great danger. In the past few days, the river has begun to level out and has reached a height of 343 metres. Once the river hits 343.8 metres, red-stage alert is enacted. This means inspections are increased to twice daily, including weekends; required repairs due to bank erosion are carried out; public boat launches are closed and boat traffic is limited. “With the rise in water levels, the city has been working on filling catch basins, testing portable pumps and inspecting dykes,” said Tom Marstaller, the city’s utility services manager. According to the River Forecast Centre, the cool April and May led to a delay in the onset of snow melt by up to four weeks. As a result, there remains a significant amount of water left to drain into the rivers and the weather over the next couple of weeks will determine how fast the water will come. Based on information provided from Environment Canada, the River Forecast Centre and Water Stewardship Branch, no significant changes in the river level are expected through the weekend. Residents who need sandbags can pick them up, free of charge, at the public works centre, 955 Concordia Way, Monday to Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and anytime at the following fire stations: 1205 Summit Dr.; 2-1578 Tranquille Rd.; 3-1625 Valleyview Dr.; 4- 615 Porterfield Rd.; Heffley Creek and 5300 Dallas Dr. The city posts on its website (kamloops.ca/ riverlevels) river levels measured at Overlanders Bridge. For more information, residents can also visit the River Forecast Centre website at bcrfc.env.gov. bc.ca.

Judy Bruneau doesn’t like being in the hospital – but a medical condition flared up last weekend, requiring intravenous medications, tests and all those pokes and prods for which the medical profession is known. She wishes they weren’t happening in the hallway, but they are. Bruneau is one of several patients in screened-off parts of halls at Royal Inland Hospital. She is alternating between anger at her situation and humiliation that she is being treated in full view of anyone who happens to be walking down the hall. Bruneau’s area — which wasn’t completely screened off the first night — is within a couple of steps of the ward’s shower, just a few more steps away from the dirty-service room and next to a phone that seems to ring constantly. The overhead lights can’t be turned off at night and that disrupted what little sleep she was able to get, she said. Bruneau said she was in her thirdfloor room talking on the telephone with her brother about her health when a nurse came in and told her she would be relocated to the hall because there

Dave Eagles/KTW

was a shortage of beds and hers was needed. “I cried,” Bruneau said. “I told them I wasn’t moving. I told them I’m not a second-class citizen.” In the end, she was moved and RIH administrator Marg Brown said she understands Bruneau’s anger about it. “It is not the ideal situation,” Brown said, adding hospital staff “is committed to caring for these patients, whether they’re in a bed in a hall or in a room. “That doesn’t make it nice, though.” Most days, Brown said, there are people in the halls of most wards, but she couldn’t put a figure on it because “it’s very fluid. It varies day to day.” There are many reasons for the lack of space, Brown said, including the fact demand on the hospital continues to

increase while funding does not keep pace. In fact, Brown said, if a decision was ever made to fully fund all health-care costs in the province, “it would bankrupt it.” It’s important to avoid having people stuck in the emergency room waiting for admission and a bed, Brown said, because that causes a backlog and longer waits in that key department. Brown said staff don’t move people into the halls without making sure they are medically stable. She said RIH has put administrators and doctors into the hall in the past when they were patients and space was needed.

The Remy housing project in Richmond was the first of its kind being built in B.C. under new rules allowing six-storey wood-frame buildings. It was destroyed by fire in May while under construction. Black Press file photos

Taller wood-frame buildings controversial box,” Hickey told KTW. The potential problems with wood-frame developments typically occur in the construction phase. Unlike concrete buildings, which have fire-suppression and sprinkler systems installed during construction, that can’t happen with wood-frame buildings. The fire-suppression systems are placed inside once the frame is complete, which leaves the woodframe buildings vulnerable to devastating fires during construction. Many developers insist once the fire-suppression systems are in place and construction is complete, wood-frame buildings are just as safe as any other, but Hickey

It was a fire that lit up the night sky over Richmond and parts of Vancouver. But, when it was reported that a major blaze at the beginning of May involved a six-storey woodframe building still under construction, it wasn’t a surprise to Bob Hickey. The retired regional fire commissioner for the Interior, and many others in the firefighting profession, have long been sounding their own alarm on that very type of development. “It’s really just a big match-

but it changed the building code in 2009 to allow structures of up to six storeys. So far, the only development to take advantage of the change in the code in the city is Library Square in North Kamloops. It rises to five storeys and other similar buildings are being planned around the city. Hickey questioned the government’s decision to change the building code, suggesting the lobby from the wood industry was too strong. Though the proliferation of large wood-frame buildings was also a concern for the city’s top firefighter, Kamloops Fire Rescue

Chief Neill Moroz said many of his concerns have been addressed. He said when the government first announced changes to the code, it sought the opinion of chiefs across the province, who made several recommendations, including better monitoring systems and extra security at construction sites. The government listened. “Once it’s built, it’s the same as any building as long as there are no breaks in the fire guard,” Moroz said, acknowledging the fire department wouldn’t likely be able to save a wood-frame building if it went up in flames during construction.

isn’t convinced. He said no one really knows how the buildings will hold up years after completion and under fire conditions. He pointed out there has been testing in a controlled labs, but argued it’s not the same as a fire getting into a blind space between floors in the middle of the building and spreading in an uncontrolled manner. “It’s extremely serious and whether all the people will be able to get out in time is something no one can predict,” Hickey said.

In the Wednesday June 15, 2011 edition of Kamloops This Week the Extra Foods advertisement showing a “NO TAX EVENT” should not have appeared.

City road crews worked quickly to replace the stop sign and road marker at the intersection of Mark Recchi Way and the south end of the Red Bridge after the original — featuring a ‘Mark Recchi Way’ sign attached to the stop sign — was stolen earlier Thursday morning after Recchi’s Boston Bruins defeated the Vancouver Canucks to win the Stanley Cup.

By Tim Petruk Mel Recchi, father of Stanley Cup hero and Kamloops native Mark Recchi, talks about his son’s glorious exit from the NHL. Read it online at kamloopsthisweek.com.

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Perhaps he was a Mark Recchi fan. Maybe he was really upset that Recchi’s Bruins beat Vancouver for the Stanley Cup. Whatever the impetus, someone wearing a Team Canada jersey cut down and stole the Mark Recchi Way street and stop sign at the south end of the Red Bridge at about 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said the sign swindler left in a truck headed north on Mount Paul Way. And, that was just one of many calls Mounties were busy responding to in the wake of Vancouver’s 4-0 loss in Game 7. Learned said police responded to about 50 calls, though none rivalling the severity of the riots in Vancouver. Less than an hour after the game ended, at about 8:40 p.m., police received a report of drunken youths burning a Canucks flag near the cenotaph on Battle Street. As police arrived on scene, Learned said, six kids were seen fleeing the park on foot. Officers found a burned

Canucks towel near the cenotaph. The youths were not located. Just before 11:30 p.m., a man attempting to perform a BMX stunt for a group of people gathered in the 300-block of Lansdowne Street suffered “significant face trauma,” Learned said, after miscalculating a jump and faceplanting on the pavement. He was taken to hospital for treatment and testing. The final Canucks-related call came in just after 2 a.m., when witnesses reported seeing two men walking through the area of Eighth Avenue and York Street “knocking over signs and anything not bolted down,” Learned said. The suspects were not located. Learned said the number of calls in Kamloops on Wednesday was in line with a typical weekend night.

PNE dreaming of home in Sun Peaks

STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

There appears to be a hush over Sun Peaks Resort. It’s not quiet because the ski season has come and gone. People are being tightlipped about a new resident in town. Last week, it was quietly announced the Pacific National Exhibition (PNE) had purchased two properties in the Lookout Ridge area of the resort. However, getting those involved in the purchase to spill the beans on what the popular exhibition is doing at Sun Peaks is no easy task. The realtor in charge of selling the property and officials with the PNE won’t confirm anything, but speculation is the properties will eventually be featured as the exhibition’s annual prize home in 2012 and 2013. Shelley Frost, vice-president of marketing for the PNE, couldn’t comment on what the land will be used for, but did add officials with the Vancouver exhibition see Sun Peaks as a great resort destination. “We are obviously planning for the future,� she told KTW.

+2:&$1:(,03529( 6(1,256œ&$5(" This is one of two lots at Sun Peaks Resort purchased by the Pacific National Exhibition, likely for future dream homes the PNE raffles off. The two lots, which were listed by Sotheby’s International Realty Canada for $260,000, are 9,000 and 13,600 square feet in size, respectively.

This year’s PNE prize home is located in Kelowna. Liz Forster, managing broker at Sotheby’s International Realty Canada, couldn’t say much either, but called the purchase of the two properties “monumental� for the resort. In reality, the parties involved are staying quiet because of provincial gaming laws. Lotteries and prize-home draws are tightly regulated by a provincial body called the Gaming Policy and Enforcement Branch. The governing body sets the gaming rules and has strict guidelines when it comes to prize-home lotteries.

Under the rules, lotteries like the ones offered by the PNE are only allowed to advertise for 16 weeks leading up to the draw or risk losing their licence. So, for now, the two lots, which were listed for $260,000 each, will remain empty, but filled with speculation. Sun Peaks Mayor Al Raine, who noted the municipality was not involved in the lot purchase, suggested if indeed the properties are used as PNE prize homes, it will help raise the profile of the resort. “I think it makes a lot of good sense,� he said, opining Sun Peaks is the perfect destination for a dream home.

On Tuesday, June 14, Dr. Dave J. Hayes gave a 25-minute lecture, followed by a question-and-answer period, to a class at NorKam secondary. What was unusual was the fact Hayes gave the lecture from Ottawa. Dave Eagles/KTW

Cross-country lecture By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

There were no textbooks, no overhead projectors and no chalkboards in Gina Kiem’s familystudies class on Tuesday morning (June 14) at NorKam secondary. There wasn’t even a smartboard. Instead, the 28 high-school students in the classroom were treated to a guest lecture from a neuroscientist thousands of kilometres away — all done via webcam. “Basically, it’s a video-conference session with current researchers from Canada who are coming to give a different learning environment for the students,” Kiem said. “They’re leading researchers from all across Canada.” Tuesday’s video-conference — part of a program called Virtual Researcher On Call (VROC), in partnership with NorKam and the University of Ottawa — was a first for Kamloops schools. Dr. Dave J. Hayes gave a 25-minute lecture, followed by a question-and-answer period. Hayes is a neuroscientist postdoctoral fellow at the Institute of Mental Health Research at the

Royal Ottawa Hospital, University of Ottawa. He opened his talk — throughout which he was seated at what appeared to be his office desk, wearing a headset microphone and occasionally sipping from a Tim Hortons cup — by noting the unusual nature of the lecture. “This is a first for you guys and it’s a first for me, too,” he said. “I’ve given a lot of lectures, but none where the people are 5,000 kilometres away.” He spoke about physiology and brain functions as they relate to mental health — something Kiem has been teaching to the familystudies class this semester. NorKam principal Sheryl Lindquist said her school was eager to make use of the technology. “It’s an opportunity for researchers that are absolutely up to date and current to have conversations with students at the grassroots,” she said. “It’s much better that a textbook or even YouTube, because it’s interactive. “Teachers are starting to use any and all technology they can get their hands on because it’s more

up to date than a three-year-old textbook.” VROC is an Ontario-based education program run by Partners in Research. It was started in 2006 by the Ontario Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. It expanded to Quebec and Alberta in 2009 and the rest of Canada last year. There is no cost for a school district to become a VROC partner, which entitles the partner to two free video-conferencing sessions per year. Lindquist said NorKam is the only Kamloops school to have so far taken advantage of the program — and she’d like to see it happen more in the future. “Any of the web technology offerings — kids are web-based individuals this day and age,” she said. “It makes it more believable and real.” Kiem would also like to see more video-conference lectures. “I’d love to do it again — I think it would be a great idea,” she said. “I’m just interested in technology and different ways for children to learn.”

Common sense should often trump rigid contract language

I

WAS RAISED IN A STAUNCH union household. Walked my first picket line at 12. Met my husband when I asked him to run the strike at the newspaper we both worked at in Ontario. Even got a very special strikerelated memento at my retirement party more than a decade ago — yes, I did once retire, only to get drawn back into this business after our move to Kamloops from Ontario. I’ve negotiated contracts on pensions, pay equity, basic wages and working conditions, won arbitrations and never once lost a grievance. That doesn’t mean I always won, just that there was always a solution, a way out of a staffing situation that might have seemed impossible. So, it is not lightly I say there’s something fundamentally wrong when a child has panic attacks at the thought of setting foot in a classroom in our city. There is something amiss when parents complain to the school board only to be told it’s difficult to deal with teacher issues because, as one school district person told me, their union contract is so iron-clad it’s impossible to mete out discipline. In the past several weeks, I’ve received phone calls from parents upset about a classroom situation causing their children significant stress. At least two of these parents said that, given no satisfaction from school-board administrators, they would be moving their children to other schools. Each complained of the same basic issues: A teacher who berates students to the point some would leave in tears. I’ve been lucky. My children have had, for the most part, wonderful teachers who were engaged, communicative

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL and had an enthusiasm for their chosen profession. Yes, there were a couple who were a bit less to my liking than others, but my rule has always been if my children are happy and learning, that’s all that matters. I’m not all that familiar with the contract the B.C. Teachers’ Federation has, so I called some education-related friends who would know about this, to ask them if it’s true parents really are facing an impossible fight if they are upset about a teacher’s behaviour in the classroom. To a person, they said yes. They said the teachers’ contract is so rigid it is virtually impossible for the school district to affect any meaningful discussion, let along discipline, on issues about teacher performance. I’m not going to doubt them. Some are charged with administering that contract, while some benefit from its apparently strong pro-teacher language. So, what’s a mom to do, I asked them? What’s a mom to do when her child is leaving school in tears, afraid she’ll flunk if she doesn’t do everything exactly the way the teacher demands, who does everything but throw up at the thought of going to class?

One of those school-district people I talked with said, as a person with a strong union background, I had to know that contracts protect employees. True, but common sense also has to play a part, I told him, pointing to a management-union meeting I had once to deal with a co-worker accused of harassment. Technically, there was little proof. It was a he-said, she-said, but we both knew there was a problem. The manager and I talked, we agreed he’d come down hard on the employee we both knew was behaving badly — to put it mildly — and the union would tsk-tsk to him in private about it, but tell him it was best to accept the employer’s offer of free counselling, some time off with pay and pointed encouragement from all to deal with his issues. It played out that way, the guy got counselling, the harassing ended and, more than a decade later, he’s still employed and has not had another complaint lodged against him. The letter of the contract could have precluded that kind of discussion; common sense dictated it was a talk that needed to happen. Which brings me right back to the calls I’ve had and the conversations I’ve been involved in trying to make sense of it all. Students should not be afraid to go to school. They should not fear their teachers. They should not have to change schools because of a teacher who cannot control their temper, emotions and language. And, any union that allows that to continue is failing the very people it claims to care about. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com kamloopsstreetlevel.tumblr.com

Canuck fans did not riot in downtown Vancouver following Game 7 on Wednesday night. Nor did hockey fans burn cars, attack police and loot stores. The rioting was started by a small group of thugs intent on recreating the shame of 1994 and using the big game as the launching pad. Of course, their criminal acts were aided and abetted by the majority around them who, while not taking part in the riot, silently spurred it on by snapping photos with their cameras, cheering on the carnage and refusing to heed police orders to leave the downtown area. This happened on June 14, 1994, after the Canucks lost Game 7 of the Stanley Cup final in New York City. Following that riot, the city and province did much soulsearching, launched inquiries and made plans to ensure this never happened again. But, it did. When more than 100,000 people converge in the concrete canyons of the province’s largest city, it only takes a small number to overwhelm a police force. The riot was disgusting, but not unprecedented. In Montreal, people rioted and caused millions of dollars in damage in 2008 and 2010 after the Canadiens won crucial playoff games. The difference between 1994 and 2011 is technology. On Wednesday night, thousands of photos were captured on cellphone cameras. The public can go to Facebook, Tumblr and other social-network sites to view photos of rioters and help identify the perpetrators so the police can get on with arresting those responsible.

Editor: We would like to dearly thank the staff at Royal Inland Hospital for the caring and comfort of our friend, father and grandfather, Michael (Mickey) Dunn, in his last few days of life. Special thanks to the nurses in emergency triage, to Carolyn on 7 North, to Judy and Edith on 5 North and to those we unfortunately didn’t have the pleasure of meeting. Thanks also to the understanding and treatment from the triage neurologist and to doctors Howie and Mahmood. These people deal with sickness and death on a daily basis and still show the compassion and professionalism appreciated by families. Keep up the good work as we’re all counting on you at some point in our lives. The Dunn Family Kamloops

The question remains: What is HST benefit to Ottawa? Editor: I’ve had some time to mull over KTW editor Christopher Foulds’ question as to why the federal Conservatives have managed to avoid the HST wrath in B.C. (‘Curiously, the Conservatives have escaped HST wrath’, June 1). This is by no means a complete answer, but I think it’s partly because the provincial Liberal government gave the electorate so much to focus their repugnance on, there was little left

basking in wealth or jobs. At any rate, none of it came true. The B.C. Liberal party is not renown for its collective intelligence, but was MLA Blair Lekstrom the only one who could see this lying (what else can you call it?) defied every piece of basic economic theory known to man and contrary to 4,000 years of observing government and taxation? So, that’s why I’m primarily mad at the B.C. Liberals.

over for the federal government. All the feds did was bribe the ethically and financially weak Liberals with $1.6 billion of our own money. Then the lying started: It will create 113,000 new “goodpaying” jobs; it will be “revenue-neutral”; consumerism will be up. In fact, the other provinces will be left weeping that they hadn’t thought of this before. Some of them had, of course — notably the Atlantic provinces, which are not exactly

dan dobrovolny ABERDEEN CUL-DE-SAC

(doe-bro-vol-knee)

But, Foulds’ point raises other important questions. For example, what was in it for the Conservatives to spend nearly $6 billion to persuade B.C. and Ontario to go with an HST? There is no obvious benefit for the federal Conservatives to promote an HST as they still only get five per cent of the 12 per cent HST in B.C. and the 13 per cent HST in Ontario. Think about that. I can’t find anybody with an answer.

My best guess is that when the feds have got all the provinces onside with an HST, they’ll bury the tax in the price, as Britain with its VAT. That in itself isn’t a bad idea but, once it’s hidden, it becomes far easier for the federal and provincial governments to increase the tax with only a brief mention of it on a newspaper’s back page. We’ll hardly notice it. The time to kill that possibility is now. John Richardson Kamloops

NDP focus of mystery poller By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Someone is polling Kamloopsians about a potential NDP challenger for Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but who it is remains in the dark. Kamloops-North Thompson NDP riding association president Rick Turner thinks itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the provincial Liberals. Kamloops-South Thompson Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger said his party is not conducting the poll. The provincial NDP office staff, when asked by Turner, said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not them and again pointed the finger at the Liberals as possible culprits. The three local people identified in the poll â&#x20AC;&#x201D; declared candidates Cecile McVittie and Kathy Kendall, along with anti-HST local campaign chairman Chad Moats â&#x20AC;&#x201D; each said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing the polling. Kendall and Moats both pointed out the cost to do that kind of polling would be prohibitive for most people to do on their own. The pollster, John Murney of Kontact Consulting in Regina, said he is bound by confidentiality to not reveal his client. Murney did confirm the poll, the gist of the questions â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which were sent to KTW â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and that he is surveying 1,000 people in the city. McVittie and Moats said they had received a call from the pollster. In fact, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how Turner found out about it, when McVittie called him after listening to an

answering-machine message about it and wondering what it was about. Whoever is behind it is clearly looking at the candidate qualities. The questions include voter preference and impressions of the three, along with questions to rank the importance of living in the riding, being well-known and having a strong voice. Kendall, who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t live in the riding, said she considers Kamloops to be â&#x20AC;&#x153;one entity, except during provincial elections,â&#x20AC;? and noted she has worked throughout the riding. As for the results, the poll shows the race for the nomination is essentially between two people, with Kendall receiving 42 per cent in the candidate-preference question and Moats 58 per cent. McVittie was preferred by none. In terms of impressions, all three ranked highest in the no-opinion category (McVittie, 64 per cent; Kendall, 50 per cent; Moats, 40 per cent.) Adding the favourable and very favourable rankings creates another 18 per cent for McVittie, 21 per cent for Moats and 40 per cent for Kendall. Response to the need to live in the riding showed 90 per cent said it is very important, while the rest ranked it as important. Meanwhile, Moats likely has joined the two in the quest for the nomination as he planned to file the appropriate paperwork and fees with the provincial NDP office and local president Turner by the deadline of 5 p.m. Thursday, June 16.

Travel Advisory Update

Temporary Zopkios Brake Check Closure 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. The closure begins on June 15, 2011 and continues until September 2011. A temporary brake check will be set up nine kilometres north of the Zopkios site at Coquihalla Lakes rest room area. 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.

Benjamin Friedman was looking at his drink — “a carbonated beverage,” he said, either Sprite or ginger ale, he can’t remember — and noticed bubbles rising to the top at a significant speed. “I thought, ‘Are those bubbles accelerating, or do they eventually get to this constant rate?’” he said. So, the 16-year-old 10th grader at South Kamloops secondary devised an experiment. He separately injected one-millilitre amounts of three liquids — gasoline, hexane and vegetable oil — into a cylinder of water and watched them rise. But, not with his eyes. Instead, Friedman rigged up a contraption to film the liquids rising and measure their acceleration by viewing the video frame by frame. They reached terminal velocity. Then he reached the top of the Canadian science-fair scene.

Your Welcome Wagon Representitives Grade 10 South Kamloops secondary student Benjamin Friedman proudly displays the medal that he won for his science project Terminal Velocity of Drops Rising in Water Due to Buoyancy: What A Drag! Friedman was the only intermediate winner from across B.C. to win gold at the national level. Dave Eagles/KTW

Friedman’s project garnered de facto top honours at his school fair — he was the only entrant in his age category — and earned him a spot at regionals in April at Thompson Rivers University. There, he was one of five students selected to go to the Canada Wide Science Fair. And, at the national competition in Toronto last month, Friedman earned a gold medal in the

intermediate age category for his fizzinspired experiment. “My science teacher was definitely impressed,” he said. “All my teachers, actually. They said things like, ‘Good job, way to go’.” Friedman said the project took serious dedication. “I worked on it for about six months,” he said, estimating he put about four hours into the project each week during that period.

“I put a lot of time into it.” But, Friedman’s ride isn’t over yet. In August, he’ll take it to Thailand for the APEC Science Festival, an annual science fair put on by the AsiaPacific Economic Co-operation. After that? “I’m definitely planning on doing another project next year,” he said. “I just don’t have any ideas yet.”

Credit Blowing Up On You?

Here are a few considerations to review when deciding if you are ready to buy. 1) The Rental Market – What are the rents projected to be in the near future, how much

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

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

Renters!! Are you ready to buy? People rent for very good reasons, and you may have many of them...but have you ever wondered if you are ready to buy?

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

Mortgage Matters

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

Park death spurs coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inquest By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inquest into the death of a man found dead in a downtown Kamloops park a year-and-a-half ago is slated to begin in November. John Gibbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body was discovered on Nov. 22, 2009, in the park next to Stuart Wood elementary. An inquest into his death will begin on Nov. 14. The 39-year-oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death was never deemed suspicious by police. Gibbons had spent most of his life bouncing between subsidized housing and living on the street. Following his death, ASK Wellness Centre

outreach co-ordinator Ken Salter speculated Gibbons was probably drinking at the Cenotaph on Battle Street the night he died and fell down a flight of stairs, hitting his head on a steel railing. Salter said Gibbons was found with four broken ribs and a ruptured spleen. Gibbons also had a full bottle of alcohol and his wallet by his side when he was found. Not much is known about Gibbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; activities in the hours leading to his death. He was arrested by Kamloops RCMP on the morning of Nov. 20, 2009, and spent much of the day before he died in custody. Police later said there was a minor altercation

between Gibbons and officers as he was being arrested, but they say he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t suffer serious injuries. Gibbons was released from police custody at about 6:45 p.m. on Nov. 21, 2009. After leaving city cells, Salter said, Gibbons turned up at Henry Leland House, where he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be in any pain or suffering from any injuries. He is then believed to have gone to the Cenotaph to meet some drinking buddies at about 9 p.m. After Gibbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; body was discovered, Kamloops Mounties issued a plea for witnesses to come forward with information about the hours before his death.

Gibbons gained notoriety following an altercation with former mayoral candidate and RCMP officer Pete Backus in the summer of 2008, caught on camera by KTW photographer Dave Eagles. Photos taken at the time appeared to show Backus gouging Gibbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eye and attempting to force him out of his wheelchair. Gibbons was injured in the scuffle. A police investigation concluded Backus should face criminal charges, but Crown counsel eventually decided not to proceed, saying there was not a significant likelihood of conviction. The inquest into Gibbonsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; death will be

presided over by coroner Roderick MacKenzie. A jury will hear evidence detailing the circumstances surrounding the death and will then have the opportunity to make recommendations based on those circumstances.

Mayday! Mayday! Construction tumbles By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The month of May was not only disappointing for people craving a little sun — it was also forgettable for development in the Tournament Capital. According to the city’s building-permit department, construction activity in Kamloops took a major tumble in May. The number of single-family permits issued in May reached 14, less than half of the 36 permits issued in May 2010. That helped drop the overall construction value for the month to $14.9 million from $31 million the previous year. Even more startling is the decrease in value among residential permits. The city handed out $8.6-million worth of residential permits last month, compared to $29 million in May 2010. David Trawin, the director of development and engineering services, couldn’t put his finger on a reason for the slow month, but predicted the city will meet its original targets from the

beginning of the year. “We feel going forward it isn’t that bad. We’re hoping it’s just a glitch,” he said, noting May 2010 was an unusually busy month, while last month was one of slowest in recent years. In the first five months of 2011, the city has seen $68 million in construction activity, compared to $95 million through the same span last year. In 2010, the city issued $191-million worth of building permits, but expected that number to drop in 2011 to about $140 million. Trawin did have some positives to take from May, noting building-information requests, which are made when people are looking to buy a new home, are up from last year. The city also issued $5.4-million in commercial-building permits for the month, a significant increase from the $1.4 million value in May 2010. Kamloops has only topped the $200 million in permits once, in 2008, when it doled out $207-million worth of permits, which remains a record.

ABORIGINAL DAYS

KIB welcomes everyone to remember their roots

E

VERYONE IS WELCOME. It’s the message the Kamloops Indian Band (KIB) is sending out in celebration of National Aboriginal Day on Tuesday, June 21. The national event is held to acknowledge and celebrate aboriginal people. Each community puts on its own events in celebration of the day. “We want to share our culture and our customs,” said Vi Manuel, KIB events co-ordinator. Manuel said approximately 300 to 400 people showed up for last year’s event in Kamloops. New this year is Interactive Indian Idol, designed to give youth the opportunity to showcase themselves and compete with any special talent they may have. “We’re trying to get the youth to show their inner voice,” Manuel said. Winner of the competition will earn a cash price, a beaded medallion — and bragging rights. Other festivities at this year’s event include a bouncy castle, traditional

games and sports, a music festival, guest speakers, self-guided tours of the Secwepmec Museum, crafts for sale, food and entertainment. The highlight of the day comes at the end. Ryan McMahon — also known as Clarence Two Toes — will be featured after musical performances by Jordan Froste, Nitehawks, Coffee House Co., C-Solow and Michaela Dennis. “It’s a chance to celebrate,” Manuel said. The day begins at 11 a.m. with self-guided museum tours, the children’s festival, Interactive Indian Idol, sports day and a traditional lahal tournament. At 11:45 a.m., there will be a barbecue and prayers by elders, followed by guest speakers. Music begins at 1 p.m.and continues to 4 p.m. The event is free, open to everyone and takes place outside the IIB Annex building, 200-355 Yellowhead Hwy. “It’s based on the fact you always remember when you came from,” Manuel said.

Law school hires faculty By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Thompson Rivers University is one step closer to opening the country’s first new law school in more than three decades. TRU announced this week the bulk of the inaugural faculty for the law school, which will open its doors to students in September. Anne Pappas, the law school’s founding administrator, said the faculty will offer a great educational experience to students. “Our faculty are coming from all over, internationally as well as nationally,” she said. “But, all our Canadian educated.” The faculty includes Ken Cooper-Stephenson, an internationally recognized expert on tort, and Janna Promislow, an expert in First Nations Law. Cooper-Stephenson is Cambridge-educated and most recently taught at the University of Saskatchewan and a pair of law schools in Australia. Promislow received her law degree from the University of Victoria and has taught at York University, the University of

Alberta and University of Victoria. Tuition for the law school is $16,800 per year, but students in the first intake will receive a $3,700 grant for each of their three years — working out to $13,100 per year. Pappas admitted the costs are higher than B.C.’s two other law schools, but said rates at UVic and UBC are under a tuition freeze — and both receive provincial funds, which TRU does not. Tuition for the 2011-2012 school year is $8,507.92 at UVic and $10,338.17 at UBC. Pappas said the biggest hurdle to date in setting up TRU’s law school has been negotiations with the faculty association about lawfaculty salaries. A tentative deal was reached in April and ratified in May. Terms haven’t been made public, but, Pappas said, some law-faculty members will be paid more than instructors in other faculties. “It’s what the market dictates,” she said. “If it wasn’t in line, we wouldn’t have been able to secure these people who are coming from other institutions or are experts in

their areas. “You’ve got leading-edge academics and people who are groundbreaking in the areas they’re researching, which is exciting.” In the coming weeks, Pappas said, the law school will hire its two remaining faculty — for a total of eight — and a chief law librarian. The eight faculty members will be enough to manage the 65 firstyear students who will begin law studies in September. Pappas expects six more to be hired before next fall and more again before the 2013-2014 school year begins. Members of the law-school faculty will begin work on July 1. Classes are slated to begin on Sept. 6. TRU’s law school is the first since the University of Moncton’s school of law opened its doors in 1978. The school of law at Thompson Rivers University will be housed in the new Brown Family House of Learning for the time being, but will move into a revitalized Old Main building when renovations are complete.

LOCAL NEWS

City to expand number of gender-neutral washrooms By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It’s an awkward situation many who either have young children or care for a disabled person likely experience on a regular basis in Kamloops. When someone with a disability needs to use a public bathroom, and their caregiver is the opposite sex, washroom the options are limited, But, that conundrum just got a little easier to deal with in Kamloops, as city council has approved spending $3,500 to label and designate bathrooms in a handful of recreational

facilities as genderneutral. Byron McCorkell, director parks, recreation and cultural services, said the move to the nondescript bathrooms is an effort to make public facilities more accessible for all residents. “We identified that we have disabled people who need to have a caregiver and their having difficulties using facilities in our recreation building,” he said. “It’s just a means to help them have a quality of life.” A handful of community halls and sports facilities, including the Brocklehurst Recreation

Centre, Memorial Arena and Valleyview Arena, will get the genderneutral bathrooms. The cost to make the changes in most facilities ranges from $200 to $300 for new signs and door-locking mechanisms. When questioned about the seemingly high cost to install a sign, McCorkell explained the price is a quote from a sign shop based on the mounting, printing and production of the signs. He noted the cost for each bathroom could end up being less than estimated. Interior Savings Centre, McArthur

“It is not the ideal situation [but hospital staff] is committed to caring for these patients, whether they’re in a bed in a hall or in a room. — RIH administrator Marg Brown

Dave Eagles/KTW

Number of RIH beds down to 224 XFrom A1

Brown said she couldn’t speak to the fact the number of beds in the hospital has dropped to 224 — from what Bruneau said a nurse told her was more than twice that number — because that decision was made before Brown became RIH administrator. However, Brown said she would expect the number of beds has decreased because stays in the hospital are no longer as long as they used to be for many procedures. Meanwhile, being in the hallway has led to Bruneau, who is being treated for a bacteria-related skin infection, meeting other patients

who have shared her experience. She took KTW to meet one of them, who said she was moved in and between a room and the hallway more than once one day, adding that if it happened again, she would check herself out of the Columbia Street facility. Bruneau said she was also pushing hospital staff — each of whom she praised for their kindness and understanding — to let her go home and have home-care provide the nursing she requires. “But, I’ll tell you,” she said, “if they don’t get me a room soon, I’m just going to check myself out and go home.”

Multi-family recycling approved By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

After watching the neighbours in envy for years having their recycling picked up at the curb, residents living in multi-family units in Kamloops are finally getting the same service. Following a successful pilot project, city council has approved expanding the city-wide curbside recycling program to all multi-family complexes. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expected the expanded service will be in place by the end of the year. Mayor Peter Milobar called the expansion â&#x20AC;&#x153;positive,â&#x20AC;? adding it sends a good message about the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to help the environment. According to a staff report, there will be a $430,000 capital cost for the expansion, with an additional $180,000 needed annually to operate the program. Based on a new rate structure, roughly one-quarter of the 280 multi-family sites in the city will pay more for the service,

about $8.50 per unit annually, while the rest will either have costs stay the same or decrease by as much as $6.50 a year. The recycling program is expected to divert 1,400 tonnes of material from city landfills annually, which is roughly 230 per cent more than whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being diverted from the four recycling depots around town. The city will start advertising and providing educational materials in the next couple of months, followed in the fall by setting up the recycling carts and bins and finally beginning collection by January 2012. Complexes receiving the wheeled-cart service would be charged the existing curbside rate of $36, while buildings getting the bins would be charged the current bin rate of $34 plus an additional bi-weekly collection rate of $17. Milobar said once the program is up and running, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d like to see the city drop to just one recycling depot, most likely keeping the Mission Flats location given its proximity to the businesses who still

rely on the depots. As for commercial city-wide recycling, Milobar suggested that service could still be a few years away. Originally launched in June 2010, the city added another three months to its multi-family curbside-recycling pilot project to gather more data on the program. During the first three months, it was noted 25 to 30 per cent of overall garbage was diverted from the landfill, which works out to about 10 metric tons a week. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s slightly higher than the average expected diversion rate. Kamloops had planned to run the pilot project in 2009, but council tossed it out of that yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. At a cost of $50,000, it made its way into the 2010 budget. A total of 2,000 residents living in 40 buildings across the city took part. In March 2008, Kamloops started its curbside-recycling program for nearly 23,000 single-family households. That program typically diverts 20 tons a day.

Thrupp Manor purchased and rezoned for multi-family use By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

What was once home to low-income seniors now sits empty. In a short amount of time, the Thrupp Manor property on Royal Avenue will be barren and waiting for redevelopment. The city recently purchased the former seniorsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; complex for $900,000 and rezoned the property for multi-family use.

Though no timeline was given for when the property would be developed, Mayor Peter Milobar said he would like the property turned into some type of housing that would fit in with the current revitalization in the neighbourhood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it lends itself to the next phase in that neighbourhood,â&#x20AC;? he said, noting the work the city has done to fix up nearby McDonald Park and completion of Library Square.

CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE â&#x20AC;&#x153;It always happens to someone else, right?â&#x20AC;? Wrong, a critical illness can strike anyone at any time. If this was to happen to you, how would you deal with it? â&#x20AC;˘ Would your life change if you were to suffer a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or life-threatening cancer? â&#x20AC;˘ Where would the money come from to cover additional and unexpected expenses that may be associated with medical treatment, time off work and recovery? â&#x20AC;˘ Would you have to withdraw from your saving account, your RRSP or borrow from your Line of Credit to pay the medical bills (more than 70% of the costs linked to cancer are not covered by the provincial health insurance plan) and every day expenses. A critical illness policy would provide you and your family with a lump-sum payment ($10,000 - $2,000,000) to look after your ďŹ nancial needs.

LOCAL NEWS The provincial government changed the building code in 2009 to allow wood-frame structures of up to six storeys in height. So far, the only development to take advantage of the change in the code in the city is Library Square in North Kamloops. Dave Eagles/KTW

Construction phase most vulnerable to fire XFrom A3

Moroz noted his fire department works closely with the city’s building department and developers to ensure all precautions are taken during and after construction, as in the case of Library Square. The developer behind the North Kamloops development is also standing by the safety of wood-frame buildings. Developer Casey van Dongen said there is always a fire potential with wood construction, but he’s confident of its safety once complete, adding he tries to get the fire doors and firewalls installed as soon as possible during

construction. “I’m not any more concerned than I was before,” he said, noting there is a firewall for every 12,000 square feet of floor area in Library Square. Van Dongen doesn’t believe the code needs to be adjusted based on the fire in Richmond. In fact, he has plans to build more wood-frame buildings in the future. The provincial government also seems undeterred by the Richmond fire. Pat Bell, the minister of jobs, tourism and innovation and the cabinet minister who introduced the code changes in 2009, said the Richmond

fire was a disappointment, but pointed out it occurred at a time when the building was most vulnerable to fire — prior to the installation of drywall and fire-extinguishing systems. “We know that is the time that it’s most vulnerable,” he told KTW. Bell believes building taller structures out of wood is safe and can be done in a way that puts no one is at risk once fire-suppression systems are in place, noting Library Square as an example of a success. However, he said, the province will analyze the Richmond fire to determine if anything more can be learned.

Read online at www.kamloopsthisweek.com City of Kamloops healthy landscapes, healthy living Have a lawn you can feel good about. Here are three lawn care tips that will save time, money and water:

1. Mow High Leaving grass 5 – 7.5 cm (2-3”) tall, shades the roots and helps prevent evaporation. Grass grows deeper and stronger roots that can overpower weeds. Avoid cutting off more than 1/3 of the grass height.

2. Grasscycle Leave grass clippings on the lawn when mowing. Eliminate bagging and raking and reduce watering and fertilizing. 3. Water Properly Water deeply, but infrequently. This means watering 1 - 2 days per week, but when you do, give your grass about 2.5 cm (1") of water. As with mowing high, this also produces deeper stronger roots and helps the grass withstand dry periods. Other practices that will encourage a healthy lawn: Dethatching – Aerating – Topdressing – Overseeding - Fertilizing Try corn gluten meal to manage weeds. It is an organic fertilizer that prevents the germination of seeds, however, it does not control existing weeds.

Quarter-century of non-violence

T

HE PRAGUE Spring of 1968 was a gallant attempt at a non-violent democratic revolution, but it was crushed by Soviet tanks. Eighteen years later, in the Philippines, the first “people-power” revolution succeeded and, since 1986, non-violent revolutions have driven a great many dictators from power. The most recent was in Egypt, in February, but there never was a guarantee these revolutions would turn out well. It depends partly on how bad the ethnic and religious cleavages are in a country: Bulgaria and Romania were OK, but Yugoslavia was a bloodbath. It depends to some extent on how poor and illiterate the population

Bloodless revolutions can succeed

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH is, although even very poor countries have made a successful transition to democracy. And, it depends on good leadership and good luck, too. But, it is the dominant political phenomenon of our time. The revolution in the Philippines succeeded because, by the late 1980s, everything was happening in real time on global television. Oppressive regimes that had never had much

compunction about killing people who challenged them didn’t feel confident about doing it before a global audience. They no longer felt free to use massive force unless the protesters gave them an excuse by resorting to violence themselves. The Marcos regime overthrown in the Philippines in 1986 was a mere kleptocracy with little ideology beyond a vague anti-communism. When the infection spread to China in 1989, the outcome was different, because a disciplined communist dictatorship was willing to kill large numbers of its own people in front of the television cameras. It understood that if it failed that test, it would

not survive. Less ruthless communist dictatorships in Europe, longer in power and ideologically exhausted, did fail the test. The non-violent revolutions that began in East Germany in November, 1989, and ended communist rule in the old Soviet Union by late 1991, could have been stopped if the local communist regimes had been willing to follow the Chinese example, but none of them had the stomach for killing on that scale. So, about 350 million Europeans got their freedom and almost nobody died. At almost exactly the same time, the apartheid regime in South Africa released Nelson

Mandela and began talks that led to majority rule in 1994. A very well-connected African friend of mine told me later what had actually happened. In late 1989, after the East German, Czech and Romanian regimes had fallen with scarcely a shot being fired, the head of the National Intelligence Service, the South African secret police, went to President F.W. de Klerk and warned him that if the African National Congress put a halfmillion people on the street in Johannesburg, he would only have two options: Kill 10,000 of them or surrender power unconditionally.

‘Non-violent revolution works often enough and its results are positive often enough that it is still the most hopeful political development of the past quarter-century.’

XFrom A28

If de Klerk didn’t like either of those options, he should start negotiating the transfer of power now. So, Mandela was released and, eventually, there was a peaceful transition from apartheid to majority rule. Then there’s a long gap, perhaps partly explained by the fact the number of dictatorships in the world had already shrunk considerably. An attempted non-violent revolution in Iran in 2009 was mercilessly crushed. People worried repressive regimes might have finally figured out how to counter non-violent revolution. Then along came the Arab spring. So, the technique is still alive and it worked in Tunisia and in Egypt. On the other hand, it has been stamped out in Bahrain,

whose fate resembles that of Prague in 1968. And, while the revolt in Yemen has probably displaced the old regime, it has been very violent — and the new regime may be no more democratic than the old. Same goes for Syria and, of course, Libya. There are no one-size-fits-all techniques for revolution or for anything else. But, the desire for democracy, equality and fairness survives everywhere and the least-bad technique for trying to achieve those things is still non-violence — even if sometimes the revolution succeeds but the aftermath doesn’t. The original “people power” revolution in the Philippines was followed by two decades of political turbulence. Yugoslavia splintered into a half-dozen warring fragments. Russia, though it escaped mass

violence, is not exactly a model democracy. On the other hand, South Korea, Indonesia and South Africa are now all democracies, as are Poland, Romania and Taiwan. The aftermath may not be what most people hoped for in Egypt, and it probably won’t be in the case of Syria. But, non-violent revolution works often enough and its results are positive often enough that it is still the most hopeful political development of the past quarter-century. The glass is half-full and getting fuller. Even the most wicked and ruthless rulers must now take world public opinion into account, and we expect them to behave much better than dictators did in the bad old days. They may disappoint our expectations, but that is the standard by which they will be judged, and they know it.

Fifteen months for driver who mowed down kids status of the most seriously injured of the four children. Crown prosecutor Sarah Firestone told court the boy was in hospital for two weeks following the March 20 incident and has yet to return to school. “There are a good many changes in him,” she said, explaining he suffered frontal-lobe injuries to his brain. “But, it’s important at this point to determine whether they’re [changes] from the injury.” Thompson was arrested late in the evening of March 20, after the Jeep he was driving plowed into a group of children, ages 12 to 14, on Parkcrest Avenue, in front of Parkcrest elementary.

By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The man who drunkenly drove into a group of children walking along a North Kamloops street earlier this year, sending four to hospital and leaving one with a brain injury, will spend the next year behind bars. John Darren Thompson was handed a 15-month sentence in B.C. Supreme Court in Kamloops on Wednesday, June 15. Thompson pleaded guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm. He has served three months in custody since his arrest, leaving another 12 months on his sentence. Before the 41-yearold Prince George man was sentenced, court heard an update on the

tial street at the time of the accident. Firestone said police estimated his speed to be upwards of 90 km/h. Thompson had been drinking in Merritt earlier in the day. He drove with a friend to Kamloops and was out looking for women and drugs at the time of the crash. 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. Thompson, who now has three drunk-driving convictions on his criminal record, was originally facing 12 charges, including the four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm — one for each victim. His blood-alcohol level at the time showed

readings of 0.170 and 0.190 — both more than twice the legal limit of 0.08, and statutorily aggravating under the Criminal Code. Court heard Thompson had a handle on his drinking problem until last June, when his 18-year-old son was killed by a drunk driver near Chetwynd. “The irony escapes no one,” said defence lawyer Jeremy Jensen. “He goes to that crutch [alcohol] hard — hard to the point, he tells me, there wasn’t really a day of sobriety from the day his son died to the day he was arrested.” But, Jensen said, Thompson immediately took responsibility for the crash. “From the very beginning, he’s admitted his guilt,” he said. “Even at the scene he did. He’s

very remorseful.” Thompson was also handed a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to an unrelated uttering threats charge stemming from an altercation with his wife in February. After Thompson is released from jail, he will spend a year on probation, during which time he’ll be barred from drinking or using drugs. He was also handed a three-year driving ban.

Theoren Lefevbre was one of four children hit by a Jeep Cherokee driven by John Darren Thompson on March 20. The kids were struck when Thompson lost control of the vehicle while driving on Parkcrest Avenue, in front of Parkcrest elementary. On Tuesday, June 14, Thompson was sentenced to one year in prison after pleading guilty to four counts of impaired driving causing bodily harm.

NorKam wrestling legend Brian Dick calls it a career By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

T

HE IMPACT Brian Dick has had on the people of Kamloops will be felt for generations to come. “I was over at [Brocklehurst Middle School] the other day and out of the 20 kids there, 10 of them had parents that I either coached or taught,” said Dick, who is retiring from teaching after 28 years at NorKam secondary. “It was uncanny.” The 58-year-old father of three — one son, Matt, 27, and two daughters, Miranda, 26, and Taylor, 24 — is known best for his accomplishments as a wrestling coach, but his work with students away from the mat is just as impressive. Dick, who graduated from Simon Fraser University in 1979, has spent the last 30 years running NorKam’s work-experience program. “The daily interaction with kids and working with work-experience kids, which is what I’ve done my whole career, is what I’ll miss most,” said Dick, an avid rugby player and wrestler in his

younger days. “These kids aren’t university-bound and they often graduate with no skills. “To see them get the skills that they need to go on and get jobs or go on to post-secondary . . . it’s just real rewarding.” NorKam’s athletic director, Mike Kern, did his best to express the importance of Dick’s body of work, which spans three decades, at the school’s athletic banquet. “He has played a major role in positively influencing the lives of many youngsters,” Kern said. “Certainly, our students have benefited the greatest under the influence of Brian’s leadership. “As a matter of fact, he’s made a great impact even beyond this community, provincially and nationally.” Kern took time to outline Dick’s accomplishments as a wrestling coach, which include leading NorKam’s men’s wrestling squad to three provincial championships (1987, 1988 and 1991) and more than 25 Okanagan championships. He also led South Kam’s girls’ wrestling team to provincial gold in 2005.

Notable individuals who got their wrestling starts with Dick include Scott Bianco, an eighttime national champion and a former Canadian Olympian Dean Dehamel who went on to great success in the U.S. college ranks, and both of his daughters, Miranda and Taylor, who achieved success on the national stage. Watching his wrestling apprentices develop from pubescent pipsqueaks into perennial champions of the mat was similar to tracking the development of his work-experience students, who often learned a trade and went on to successful careers, Dick said. “You start off in Grade 8 and you’re getting beat up. You literally get beaten up for your first two years. You don’t win many matches. But it’s that longer-tem development and the individual nature of wrestling that makes it such a great sport. “The time and the dedication it takes to be succesful . . . it’s amazing.” Dick, a Point Grey secondary grad, is often approached by former students who remind him how much he is appreciated. “It’s nice when they

come back and say, ‘Oh, you had an effect on my life,’” Dick said. “If you can impact some sort of change in a positive way and have people set goals and realize they’ve got lots of ability, that’s always a good feeling.” Dick, who taught at McArthur Park junior high for three-and-a-half years before moving to NorKam, will continue to coach wrestling at elementary and secondary schools (including NorKam) across the city after he retires from teaching. He doesn’t have to keep on coaching (neither did he have to spend countless hours at South Kam and Sa-Hali secondaries when their wrestling programs were struggling), but he wants to ensure the sport flourishes in the River City. “There’s a limited number of coaches around,” Dick said. “It’s tough to keep programs going.” The former scrum half of the Burnaby Buffaloes has also been hired by the British Columbia Wrestling Association to recruit coaches around the province and teach coachingcertification classes.

1” BEVELLED MIRRORS

Plenty of fitness ideas band-ied about Wenger: The use of excercise bands might change the way you work out You know when you discover a great new activity that you’d really like to add into your life, but you really don’t know where it’s going to fit? I took a workshop in iFlow last weekend and I’m determined to find space in the week to practice the routines. I’ve always liked using exercise bands as part of my strength routine. They’re light-weight and portable and can challenge core stability in a variety of different movement patterns. So, when I saw iFlow for the first time a few years ago at a fitness conference, I managed to incorporate a few moves into my classes and workouts. Now that I’ve taken the instructor-certification courses, I’m excited to take it a little further and learn more about how to do it, as a whole rather than in little pieces. Research done during a continuous routine

SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS shows exercises burn between four- and sixcalories per minute, which is equal to jogging on a treadmill. The bonus is the continuous resistance of the bands provides muscle toning and dynamic flexibilty at the same time, so it becomes a threein-one solution for timecrunched participants. The movements are done with an anchored band and specially designed handles that can be connected to different bands, depending on the resistance required. Watching the course instructor work through a routine was beautiful to behold.

The movements are fluid and flow from one pose to the next, giving it elements of dance, pilates and yoga. You need to be present and mindful of each move in order to maintain control and balance. When I headed out for my long bike ride the day after the certification, I tried not to contemplate how many squats and lunges I’d done the day before. As I climbed up Tunkwa Lake Road, they all came back to memory. The beauty is that each lunge has an upperbody element and each upper-body element has a lower-body connection, so each time you move from one pose to the next, there are very few muscles that are not being utilized. The fundamentals are based on circular movement rather than linear movement, since the shoulder and hip joints have circular ranges of motion; kinesthetic resistance versus static

resistance, since the tubing provides a constant energy exchange that we don’t get from traditional weights; a level of engagement that keeps your head in the game, since you can’t maintain control without maintaining your focus; and functional flexibility which helps to strengthen and stretch muscles through a full range of motion, giving them strength and control at all positions in that range. Visit iflowfitness.ca for more information. The ten different bands, ranging from 10 pounds of resistance to 100 pounds of resistance, make the workout a challenge for all ages and abilities. The routines can be adapted to all levels. I’m thrilled to be learning something new that has the potential to challenge not only myself but also many of my classes and clients.

If Dick’s schedule isn’t busy enough, his new landscaping company — Brian Dick Contracting — should do the trick. The venerable coach’s wife, Maria, will be happy to hear

her husband plans on taking a few months off a year to travel. The couple will visit Maria’s native country, Portugal, where Dick intends to become a student of the Portugese language. Dick said the recog-

nition he has received from family and friends since he announced his retirement has been overwhelming. “Sometimes, during your career, nobody recognizes what you do, and you don’t do it for that reason, but it’s

nice to have people say, ‘Oh, wow’ . . . it’s just nice.” Dick’s students and fellow staff members — past and present — will know every word of praise and encouragement he receives is well-deserved.

Reaching back to move forward ...

Corinne Bexson gets set to launch her disc through the pine trees on Hole 13 at the Rose Hill East course. That course, along with the west course at Rose Hill and a Logan Lake track, will host the Canadian Disc Golf Championships, which get underway on Saturday, June 18. KTW file photo

The Canadian comes to Kamloops STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

They might not attract the same fanfare as golf’s U.S. Open, which is underway in Bethesda, Md., but the Canadian Disc Golf Championships will be a spectacle in their own right. “We’re really stoked and really proud to be having this,” said Robbie Mensing, the Kamloops Disc Golf Club’s (KDGC) vicepresident. “It’s the Canadian championships and we’ve got some really good courses that we’re proud of.” The Canadian, as it’s known, will tee off

on Saturday, June 18, in Kamloops at two courses — the east and west courses at Rose Hill — and in Logan Lake at the Copper Ridge track. Turn south off of Valleyview drive on Rose Hill Road and drive about three kilometres to find both Rose Hill courses. Professional and amateur players will compete in separate divisions at the Canadian, which will feature about 115 golfers. On Saturday, the pros will tee off at the Copper Ridge course (located across from Logan Lake’s rec centre) at about 9:30 a.m. before moving to the

Rose Hill East course for a 2 p.m. tee time. The pros will play their final 18 holes at the Rose Hill West course on Sunday, June 19. “Rose Hill West is the premier course,” said Carrie Neal, The Canadian’s tournament director. “If spectators want to see some big drives, like throwing 500- to 600-feet, Sunday at Rose Hill West is the day to do it.” Disc golf’s current pro men’s world champion, Eric McCabe of Texas, and the sport’s 2009 world champion, David Feldberg of Oregon, will likely go toe-to-toe for The Canadian’s biggest

prize, a $1,200 cheque. “We basically have the Tiger Woods of disc golf coming up this weekend,” said Mensing, who was obviously referring to Woods’ on-course success. On Friday, June 10, however, the two discgolf experts will be working together, putting on clinics. McCabe will be hosting a putt-andapproach shot clinic, while Feldberg will be teaching the art of the long drive. The first clinic will get underway at about 4 p.m. Registration costs $20 per clinic, or $35 for both.

Disc golf championships a family event XFrom A33

Tee times for the amateur division can be found online at kdgc. yikesite.com. The B.C. Wildlife Park will be setting up a viewing station at 11 a.m. on Sunday at Rose Hill. Handlers will be featuring animals and critters native to the grasslands, such as snakes and owls, until 1 p.m. There is no cost for spectators to attend the Canadian, nor will they be charged to check out the wildlife setup, which will be located at tournament central (the tennis courts at Rose Hill park). Organizers will be on-hand at tournament

central all weekend to direct spectators toward the best viewing areas. Neal wanted to make special mention of The Canadianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s major sponsors â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Oils Sands safety Solutions, the City of Kamloops, Tourism Kamloops, Picket Fence Graphics, McCracken Station Pub, the Professional Disc Golf Association and KDGC â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because without them the event would not be possible. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because disc golf is not as well known as it is in the U.S., itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard for us to get sponsors.â&#x20AC;? Neal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re struggling to find the average business to come on board.â&#x20AC;? Unfamiliarity of the sport is not reserved

only for businesses, Neal said, as many people have never seen disc golf in action. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve ever played golf, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve already got 75 per cent of it under your belt,â&#x20AC;? Neal said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You tee off and you play it from where it lies. Every time you throw, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a stoke, and rather than a hole we have a basket.â&#x20AC;? Mensing would like to see newcomers to the sport get hooked, as he did five years ago. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The first time I played it, I fell in love with it,â&#x20AC;? said Mensing, a construction safety officer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thought it was the greatest thing ever.â&#x20AC;?

THE RISE 8500 Rising View Way Vernon Par-72, 18 holes 6,451 yards (blue tees) 5,329 yards (red tees)

Tips from the pro By Lee Ranger CPGA PRO therise.ca

The Golf Club at The Rise is a beautiful yet challenging Fred Couplesdesigned golf course that plays just under 7,000 yards from the tips — known as “The Boom Boom Tees.” If you haven’t played The Rise before, there are a couple of holes you will LEE RANGER: likely want to play again Enjoy the view once you see where the at The Rise ideal drive should be hit. One of the keys to playing here is to choose your club wisely off the teebox. Driver can be hit on almost every hole, but is not necessary to set up a good approach shot and, in a few locations, it may put you into the tightest part of the fairway. Our in-cart GPS system is loaded with all the yardage information one should need and at the beginning of each hole the screen displays a tip which tells the player exactly how to play the hole. Overall, be sure to enjoy the view and use our local rule for balls hit into the fescue. A one-stroke penalty for a drop at the point of entry may save you a few punishing results for trying to be a hero.

FEATURED HOLE: Once you’ve caught your breath after taking in the view from the teebox on No. 17 at The Rise Golf Club — Lake Okanagan straight ahead, Vernon to the left — be careful with your tee shot. Drives to the right side of the fairway are preferable and will roll to the middle. The hole is long, playing 428 from the blues, but the drastic drop in elevation shortens it up a bit. Tim Petruk/KTW

If you go, don’t forget . . . Fred Couples knew what he was doing when he attached his name to The Golf Club at The Rise. The course overlooks Vernon and offers breathtaking views on almost every hole. Whether it’s the towering trees that line some of the more protected fairways or the vast panoramic views

of Okanagan Lake, there is always something pretty at which to look. What wasn’t always pretty, though, was my golf game. It might have been a little better if I had played the track before, as there are plenty of holes that require a great deal of strategy.The Rise is a challenging track, but five tees allow

the golfer to choose just how much they want to be challenged on any given day. Next time, I might be a little less liberal with my driver use and stick to the rescue club. I would advise you do the same. — Marty Hastings

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT

Cold Driven by accord By Jessica Wallace STAFF REPORTER reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Armstrong-based rock band Cold Driven has struck a unique chord with its two sets of brothers and perfect fifth. The band is made up of Billy and Dennis Nickell, Shane and Ben Bouthillier and their friend, Jeremy McLachlan. The brothers began playing music together in 2005, with McLachlan joining them in 2009. Billy takes up vocals, with Dennis on bass, Shane on rhythm guitar, Ben on lead guitar and Jeremy on drums. There have been major and minor notes with the family dynamics in the band. They have endured their share of squabbles — as any siblings do — but Billy, the younger of the two Nickell boys, said the bond between the brothers has benefited them more than hindered. “It gives us a competitive edge,” Billy said. “[With family], you can have the hard discussions. “There’s no one you’re going to stand

beside or be there for as long of a time as family.” Musically, Billy said he and his brother grew up listening to the same music. “We are always 100 per cent on each part we agree on,” Billy said. The band is on tour promoting its new EP, The Wicked Side, which was produced by Danny Craig of Default. Billy said they were worried Craig would make their sound too soft, but he brought a positive influence bringing out melodies while retaining the rocksound. They will be stopping in Kamloops at Pogue Mahone Irish Alehouse, 843 Desmond St., on June 23. Expect to see a show full of light bars and LED lighting. The breaker blew at their first performance in Vernon, but Billy said there are always speed bumps when trying new things. “It [the light show] brings a lot more atmosphere,” he said. The show starts at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 and include a CD and entry into a draw to win KISS tickets.

Brock neighbours Tracey Louvros and Dave Kozoris were part of a three-kidney, six-person marathon operation last month. A fundraiser is being held to help Kozoris with uninsured medical costs as he recovers from his transplant in Vancouver. KTW file photo

Tracey Louvros gave up her kidney for her Brocklehurst neighbour â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and now, the communityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pub is stepping up to help Dave Kozoris, too. The Pogue Mahone Irish Alehouse is working with friends of the two Brock families to hold a fundraiser to help Kozoris with some of the expenses medical insurance doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover as he recuperates from his kidney surgery last month. Kozoris is required to stay in Vancouver no farther than a 15-minute drive from the hospital, but accommodation is not provided for him. His transplant was one of three that were done the same day at St. Paulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Hospital. Louvrosâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; kidney went to one of the three recipients and Kozoris got his from one of the three donors. The Pogue is hosting Celtic band Bansheeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Wail on June 22 and part of the $8 admission at the door will go to Kozoris to help him cover those other costs. The Winnipeg-based band is made up of brothers Brenda and Murray Jowett â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who started playing fiddle and violin at ages five and six â&#x20AC;&#x201D; their cousin Steve Barkman, Steveâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s close buddy Adam Sims and Nick Turnbull. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve performed with Sloan, The Trews and wote and performed the theme song for the PBS series The Red River Showcase. For more information, go online to bansheeswail.ca.

ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT Mike Edel says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thrilled to be on tour with fellow Victoria musician Steph MacPerhson. The duo is travelling through B.C. and Alberta, making a stop in Kamloops on June 21 at The Art We Are.

Musical worlds combine reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

Steph Macpherson began her music career singing Part of Your World from Walt Disneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s The Little Mermaid â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which may be the reason she draws her musical inspiration from the world. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Inspiration comes] not just from my personal experiences but things Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m privy to,â&#x20AC;? Macpherson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I pay a lot of attention.â&#x20AC;? Macpherson was five years old when she began 14 years of voice and piano lessons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My parents put me in voice and piano because I would not stop singing Part of Your World,â&#x20AC;? she said. She has invited musician and friend Mike Edel into her world for a two-week tour throughout B.C. and Alberta. The two Canadian artists met in Victoria, where they live. Macpherson said Victoria has an extreme-

Z

ly tight-knit music community â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what brought the two together. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all go out and support each other,â&#x20AC;? Macpherson said. Edel agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to be involved with people who are doing simlar things,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to piggyback off each other.â&#x20AC;? Edel moved to Victoria from Alberta on a whim. He said he felt a move coming and something about the West enticed him, luring him into searching for whatever it might be. Nearly three years later, he found himself touring with Macpherson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty stoked,â&#x20AC;? Edel said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really great vocalist.â&#x20AC;? Edel said he and Macpherson complement each other well; she is technically precise while he is more poetic and free-spirited. Edel considers himself made up from three

musical parts â&#x20AC;&#x201D;his English literature background, his guitar skills and his vocals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m more of a songwriter,â&#x20AC;? Edel said. Enjoy part of their world when they stop in Kamloops on June 21 at The Art We Are, 246 Victoria St. Tickets are $8 at the door. The show begins at 8 p.m.

TRAVEL

A trip of perfect design By Jamie Ross SPECIAL TO KTW

W

travelwriterstales.com

E PADDLE SLOWLY ALONG the meandering course of the Bowron River, slipping silently through the marshland. Around every bend new life emerges from the smoky river surface; beavers diving with a slap of their tail, mergansers scurrying to safety, blackbirds squawking from cattail perch and common snipes swooping with whistling wings. Then, this huge apparition appears, silhouetted in dawn’s light. An enormous head rises from the river, water cascading from dished antlers. A bull moose stands belly-deep in the sedge, its body glistening in the soft morning glow. It is the defining moment of our six-day Bowron Lake canoe trip, coming on the last day, when we had scrambled from our comfortable bedrolls in the dark, searching for magical early morning sights. We were rewarded — 15 moose in the first hour of daylight. Still, the whole trip has been charming. Each of the circuit’s lakes has its own personality — Skoi Lake

is enchanting but short, hardly long enough to get a paddle wet, while Isaac Lake, dark and sombre, seems to go on forever. Lanezi is a murky leaden grey and Rum a tiny sheltered gem bordered by wide beaches. Abundant wildlife and rich flora are set amidst a backdrop of azure lakes, cascading waterfalls and high glaciated peaks. Exciting rapids and chutes contrast lazy river drifting. Even the weather is unpredictable and dramatic. Here in B.C.’s Central Interior, a talented designer has laid out the consummate canoe circuit. Nowhere else would you find a route so perfect, a 116-kilometre chain of 11 lakes, seven portages, rivers and whitewater that, without repetition of any part of the route, returns the canoeist to the point of origin.

The route takes from six to 10 days to complete, although the record for the loop is an inane 11 hours by a pair of focussed speedpaddlers who, I assume, did not take the time to enjoy their surroundings. We are not in a hurry. Our journey begins with a 2.4-kilometre portage from the Park Registration Centre to Kibbee Lake and a leisurely paddle across Kibbee to our first camp site. Our next two days are spent paddling down 38-kilometre Isaac Lake. The park was created in 1961 and, by 1965, it seemed remarkable 150 canoes per year were

using the circuit. The park has now reached its capacity and a limit of 50 canoeists per day has been set. Though the Bowron has a reputation as a busy circuit, we saw only one other canoe in the first three days of our trip. The Isaac River begins where Isaac Lake empties through a narrow channel. We set camp and then did some practice runs through the wild chute. On the fourth day, it was an enjoyable run down the Cariboo River, running eight kilometres of chutes and rapids. We paddled up Lenezi Lake to a camp at Turner Creek, half-

replaced by low marshland. Our fourth night is spent on Rum Lake, which has the warmest water and the best swimming on the circuit. A trail off Unna Lake leads to the roaring, 24-metre high Cariboo Falls. In the late 1950s, BC Hydro debated harnessing the hydro-electric power of this magnificent cascade, but decided, in the end, the torrent was too remote to make such a venture economically viable. On the fifth day, we paddled north up Babcock, Skoi and Spectacle lakes.

There were more canoeists now, as many have the time to canoe only the western lakes. Our final camp was on the Bowron River at the fringe of the massive Bowron Marsh, site of our magnificent moose sighting. The big bull moose posed for some time and then we paddled off, leaving him in peace. We complete our trip, dawdling over Bowron Lake. It is a civilized trip, well-used, well-maintained and very organized — but still, the wilderness you reach is spectacular and unpredictable.

Your Mountain Adventure Awaits.

FAITH

The legacy of the faith of our fathers

O

NE OF THE GREAT HYMNS, FAITH OF OUR FATHERS, CELEBRATES NOT ONLY FAITH IN GOD, BUT ALSO THE MOOD OF PIETY WITHIN THE FAMILY. A part of the hymn’s lyric goes like this: “Faith of our fathers living still/In spite of dungeon, fire and sword/How sweet would be their children’s fate/If they, like them, could die for Thee.” It’s a picture of the deep relationship between regard for parents and regard NARAYAN MITRA for the faith which they have You Gotta Have given us. FAITH It is indeed sweet to have a faith for which we could die. Sadly, as author C.S. Lewis has said, those who are willing to die for their faith easily become willing to kill for it. When we try to understand what the Bible has to say about faith in the family, we should be careful to understand it in the biblical sense and not in a sense of uncritical adoration of parents or their faith. There is a trend of thought today that says submission to parents is part of an authoritarian age which has passed away. Certainly, the most conservatives of us have no desire to return to ancient Germanic or Roman concept of father. In ancient Rome, the father had right, without incurring any legal penalties

whatsoever, to kill his children if they displeased him. The right of life and death over the children was held by dads. Fortunately, this is not a Christian concept. As a matter of fact, such patriarchal authoritarianism must never be confused with piety. Let us not undermine the biblical teaching with unbiblical reactions. A reaction to excessive authoritarianism is found in the current attack upon the family. The renowned sociologist and anthropologist Margaret Mead tells us we must totally reorganize our society because children today know more than their parents do. Their education is much better and knowledge is changing so rapidly, says Mead, it is ridiculous for parents to assume that they have the right to tell their children what to do. It is interesting that the Bible itself does not subscribe to a totally authoritarian picture of the family relationship. Jesus went to the temple at 12 years of age and apparently forgot about his parents. They left for home, then they missed him and started a search. When his mother finally found him in the temple disputing with the scholars, she scolded him. His reply was, “I must be about my Father’s business.” Hardly sounds like total submission to parents. St. Paul could, in one sense, never have sung, “Faith of our fathers…” He left the faith of his father and repudi-

ated it in one sense. He was not one who submitted to a belief just because his parents did. One of the great commandments from the scriptures is: “Honour your father and your mother, that your days may be prolonged in the land which the Lord your God gives you.” Sometimes, in order to obey God, we may have to go against our parents’ wishes. But, there is no time when we may dishonour them. In the case of unworthy parents, there is the honour due them as persons, as those who have sacrificed something for us even though we might have suffered wrong at their hands. It is true Paul repudiated the Jewish orthodoxy of his parents for the new Christian religion. But, in defending himself before Governor Felix, he said, “I do serve the God of our fathers,” (Acts 24:14). His conversion was not totally a repudiation, but a fulfillment. It’s as if he was saying, “I’m really going back to the true religion of the fathers.” Many of the secular attacks on the family today are without justification. Underlying so much of the talk we hear today is the idea that, because they are young, youth know more and achieve. It is certainly true that many great things have been accomplished by young people, both today and yesterday. But, let’s not forget Moses was an octogenarian when he led the Israelites out of Egypt. Let us forget the business of old and young and together walk the path of

filial piety. Respect is due every human being. The young people’s incapacity to accept this fact in regard to their parents will destroy their capacity to relate to anybody else. They cannot have a lousy relationship with their parents and have a good relationship with everyone else. Even the worst parent is worthy of respect as a person. The biblical standard of honouring and obeying parents does not mean that children are without recourse. The church does not endorse carte blanche everything parents do or say. We do not live under Roman law today. The laws of the land say parents are denied the right to do certain things to their children. Let’s remember, above all, the example of Jesus because “he learned obedience from the things which he suffered” (Heb. 5:8). When the Father asked him to die, he said, “Father, save me from this hour.” There wasn’t any voice, but he knew there was an answer. Jesus replied, “Not my will but yours be done.” In Psalm 103:10, David said, “He [God] has not dealt with us according to our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” If we really understand a right relationship with God, we will rightly relate to both our parents and to our children.

FATHERâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S DAY

Say goodbye to ties and tools this Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Having exhausted their quota of ties, tools and sports paraphernalia, many Canadians struggle every year to come up with thoughtful and affordable gift ideas for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. TD Credit Cards associate vice-president, Stacie Pearson offers her top three present ideas for the dad who has everything: 1. Quality time with dad â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day is a great time to sit back and relax with dad but why not get out and enjoy the day together? You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to break the budget â&#x20AC;&#x201C; get outdoors and shoot some hoops at a local park, spend an afternoon at the movies or catch a game together with tickets to his favourite sports team. 2. Gift cards â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; No longer the faux pas of present giving, a gift card will give your dad the opportunity to have fun picking out a gift that he is truly excited about. 3. A new skill â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C;Who doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love mastering a new skill? Surprise your dad with classes to something heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always wanted to try like gourmet cooking, home beer brewing or sailing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best gifts donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always come

in big, expensive boxes. When it comes to buying presents for your dad, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always the thought that counts. So, set a realistic budget and stick to it,â&#x20AC;? says Pearson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And, if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re stuck for a unique gift idea or are shopping last minute, a gift card will give your dad the freedom to treat himself to the perfect gift. You can even use a travel rewards credit card such as the TD First Class Travel Visa Infinite Card to redeem points on gift cards from top retailers through tdrewards.com.â&#x20AC;?

The scent of fatherhood Think back to your childhood. One of the things youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to remember about dad is how he smelled. According to Steve Diersing, male grooming scent expert for Old Spice, the sense of smell is directly linked to memory and emotion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Giving a fragrance as a Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day gift helps to create that unique identity and signature for your father,â&#x20AC;? says Diersing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I gave my dad Old Spice every year and would feel so proud when I smelled it on him and knew he was

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.

The Fresh Collection scents â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Fiji, Cypress, Denali and Matterhorn â&#x20AC;&#x201C;â&#x20AC;&#x201C; all evoke the spirit of aspirational geographies and are available in a selection of antiâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;perspirants and body washes. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not to say that the classic Old Spice scent hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t endured the test of time. Old Spice Classic is an aromatic fougere, enhanced with notes of citrus and wood. The best part, however, for Diersing, is that it smells like dad.

Gifts to take dadâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stress away Hard times may mean dad is staying later at the office, losing sleep and occasionally phasing out during conversations. Your father works hard to keep the family afloat. This Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to show him your appreciation with these meaningful gifts: â&#x20AC;˘ Sports equipment, activity classes, or a gym membership. Pending layoffs and the rising costs of living are stressors that can cause longâ&#x20AC;&#x201C;term health issues if they are not addressed. Exercise is a great way to

using my gift. As I grew older, I would sneak and use a little on myself because I wanted to be the same man that my father was. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It created an emotional connection that was mine alone.â&#x20AC;? Diersing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t alone in giving a fragrance for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day. A recent survey revealed 47 per cent of Canadians have also given dad a fragrance in the past. Old Spice has enjoyed a resurgence in the last couple of years, thanks in part to the commercials featuring the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Old Spice Guyâ&#x20AC;?, Isaiah Mustafa, but also

FATHER’S DAY

Learning to shave from Dad Only one in three Canadian men learned from fathers –– most taught themselves Father’s Day can conjure Norman Rockwellian images of fathers teaching sons to shave, side by side, one generation passing tips (that only a man can) to the next. However, that wasn’t the case for most Canadian men. According to a recent study conducted by men’s grooming company, Gillette, only onethird of Canadian men learned to shave from their fathers, leaving roughly six in ten Canadian men who taught themselves how to shave. For those men planning to share grooming guidance with the younger generation, GQ magazine style correspondent, Brett Fahlgren, suggests the most important tip is to pass on is ensuring he has the right tools before, during and after the shave.

The study also shows 49 per cent of Canadian men shave five or more times a week. Three-quarters of men who shave weekly wet shave with a bladed razor. In order to get a more comfortable wet–shave, Fahlgren offers the following wet–shaving tips that a man can both incorporate into his own shaving regimen and/ or pass on to a boy just starting to shave. 1. Shower and exfoliate before you shave. Although beard hair can be as tough as copper wire, applying warm water helps hair to expand, making it softer and easier to cut. Try the Gillette Fusion ProSeries Thermal Face Scrub which gently warms, exfoliates and cleans to help soften hair before shaving 2. Apply plenty of shave gel and let

stand for two minutes. Shave gel provides a coating keeps beard hair soft during the shave. Try Gillette Fusion Hydra Gel Pure & Sensitive which is free from fragrance or dyes. 3. Use a light touch. Try a fresh cartridge on a Gillette Fusion ProGlide razor and use light, gentle strokes when shaving. 4. Shave hard–to– reach spots last. Shave cheeks, sides of face and neck first. The toughest whiskers grow on the chin and around the lips. Shave these areas last, as more time soaking in shaving gel will soften hair further. 5. After the shave. After shaving, rinse your face and neck with cool water and pat dry. Finish with an intense cooling lotion that will hydrate shaved skin.

Kitchen prep for a wedding

T

his summer, my love and I are gathering our closest friends and family to celebrate. As a show of gratitude, I would take on all of the food preparation myself. Thankfully, this feat of heroics is unnecessary. I am blessed to have a host of loved ones on the planning team. Personalities run the gamut from the faithfully efficient and task-oriented to the fanciful and imaginative. How does a “go with the flow” couple make a delightful cast of amateur wedding planners feel at ease? The best-laid plan gives comfort to the

ELLEN DUNCAN Healthy HELPINGS taskmasters in the crowd without stifling creative energy. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? The free spirits are happy knowing the food plan remains fluid — plenty of room for the spontaneous addition of steamed mussels and the half-turkey Nan has been saving for just such an occasion.

The dutybound are relieved to have a meal plan on paper, complete with grocery list and cooking rotation. I have a sneaky suspicion even the devoted planners in the group will relax in the company of the veteran cooks on our team. There was no question who we would ask to prepare the cake for our wedding. The obvious choice came from a winterwedding experience that lifted the spirit as the mercury dropped. My love and I sat chatting by waning candle light, the New Year’s polar plunge just hours away. Wedding revellers

had taken the party elsewhere, leaving a treasure behind in their haste — tiny pieces of wedding cake, wrapped in frilly paper, left in their wake. We gathered a pile at our table and savoured each velvety bite. I like to think it was Nanny Cole’s famous pound cake that warmed my insides as I jumped for the Atlantic’s frigid embrace. There will be no tiered layers with flourish and ribbon cascade, no iced replicas of our favorite things, just the melt in your mouth goodness of cake made for good taste.

Here’s a great opportunity at a great price to show your Grad how proud you are of them! Whether it’s your family, friend or neighbour!. A great price of only $28.00 (HST included) Payment may be made by cash, cheque, money order or credit card.

What do you do for your mental health?

D

O YOU know five ways to improve mental health for you and your family? Of course you do, but here are some suggestions you may not think: • Bullying is one of the greatest stressors and contributors to anxiety and depression out there. If you or your child is being bullied, get help and stop it; If you are watching it happen to someone, take action. Not all bullying is preventable, but there is a dynamic between bullies and their victims we can stop.

Bullies choose targets and there are actions we can take to not be the victim. • Overall physical health will impact your mental health. Your brain depends on a healthy body to supply oxygen, blood, nutrition and more. How happy did you feel the last time you had the flu? Mental and physical health work side by side. There is a mountain of research that shows when

Naturally, there are

Everyone’s needs seem to differ; some people can get away with less sleep than others. In the long term, if you do not get enough sleep, there will be serious consequences to your physical and mental health, as well as to your quality of life. • Activities and interactions with friends, family, sports teammates, neighbours and work colleagues is one of the most effective ways to improve

ships but underlines the need for people to have more than just their marriage partner to meet emotional needs. • Exercise is linked to mental health. One of the obvious benefits of exercise is the improvement of overall health but there’s more. Exercise helps us think better, ifeel better about ourselves, gives us social opportunities to meet friends and releases hormones like endor-

mental health. Our emotional and psychological needs are best met through close relationships. How important is this? Have you ever experienced the phenomenon where one of the spouses from a 50-year marriage passes away and the other spouse dies within weeks? This not only demonstrates the life-saving nature of close relation-

phins that provide many health and mental health benefits. Exercise also helps you relax more completely and gives your rest time a higher quality of restorative powers. And of course, you should be exercising your brain with puzzles, reading and other cognitive training methods. Write to us at Kamloops@cmha.bc.ca with your comments and questions.

6 ice cubes 1 cup mango juice 1/2 cup coconut milk 1/4 cup crushed pineapple (undrained) 1/2 cup frozen mango chunks Combine ice, juice, coconut milk, pineapple and frozen mango into the pitcher of a blender. Blend until smooth. Recipe serves four in 240-ml stemless martini glasses. Garnish with slices of fresh mango, skin intact. Optional: Add a splash of rum to turn these cooling drinks into cocktails. Where to find it: Mango juice is usually available in either the bottled juice, or ethnic section of supermarkets. Ceres is the most commonly found brand. Try other tropical juices, including passion fruit, papaya or lychee, for more summer drink ideas.

One, two, three, four, sound off, Capricorn. You have kept quiet long enough. Time to let it all out. Yes, there will be shock, but for once, you will be heard.

You’re good with money, but not nearly as good as an acquaintance. Seek them out for advice, Aquarius. What they do is not unique, but how they do it is.

Hang on to your hat, Pisces. A fresh face is about to rock your world. Sensible ideas fall flat at work. Time to think outside of the box. A project is approved.

Tragedy befalls a friend. Do what you can to help, Aries. Old friends drop by for a chat, and before you know it, the photos come out and the trip down memory lane begins. You hate to rain on people’s parade, but you’re in charge, and you’re going to have to nix the idea. The bottom line warrants nothing but, Taurus.

Cheer up, Gemini. Better times are coming. Clotheshorses get into an all-out war. Step in and play peacemaker, or prepare for your home to fall apart.

Prayer For Peace

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. When there is hatred, let me sow love; Where there is injury, pardon; Where there is doubt, faith; Where there is despair, hope; Where there is darkness, light; Where there is sadness, joy. Grant that I may not so much Seek to be consoled, as to console; To be loved, as to love; For it is in the giving that we receive; And it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. 450 Lansdowne St. Unit 111 Kamloops, BC V2C 1Y3 374-9188 or 1-800-403-8222

Kamloops Art Gallery

It’s about Family, Food & Fun! Open daily ‘till October 31 davisonorchards.ca | 250.549.3266 | VERNON

It also features a gallery store, hosts special events and offers programs for children and adults who want to explore their artistic side. Location: 101-465 Victoria St.

Kamloops Symphony Orchestra Some say there is nothing like experiencing live orchestral music — and Kamloops can provide that experience. From September to May, the KSO offers live music by composers from around the world and in a range of styles. Performances are held at the 710-seat Sagebrush Theatre, 1300 Ninth Ave., and the Pavilion Theatre.

Kamloops Firehall Museum The City of Kamloops Fire Rescue Service has created a museum that showcases the 117-year history of firefighting in Kamloops. Location: 1205 Summit Dr.

REVELSTOKE, BC

In order to experience the cultural history of the First Nations people of this area, a visit to the Secwepemc Museum and Heritage Park is in order. The museum exhibits incorporate the oral history and legends of the Secwepemc People, along with historical photographs, illustrations and artifacts. Also on display are birch canoes, summer mat lodge and exhibits on hunting, fishing, clothing, games, food gathering and cooking. Heritage Park is located on the banks of the South Thompson River on a 12-acre property and is a complement to the museum. There is more than one kilometre of trails leading visitors through the archeological remains of a 2,000-year-old Shuswap winter village site, four reconstructed winter pit houses and a summer village. The village features a tule mat lodge, hunting lean-to, fish drying rack, fish trap, smoke house and traditional plant foods.

Western Canada Theatre From September through March, those looking for a play or two need not search very far. Plays include comedies, cutting-edge new Canadian works and plays from around the world. The 2011-2012 season includes Betrayal, Letters from Wingfield Farm, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again, Ubuntu (The Cape Town Project) and The 25th annual Putnum County Spelling Bee. A special presentation brings M*A*S*H star Jamie Farr to the city to star in Tuesdays with Morrie.
