‘Hope’ in wake of baby death
Brail e ballots a first in B.C. On Nov. 19, Todd Harding will be voting in the municipal election, as he has done in years past. However, this time, he’ll be doing it on his own. Harding is legally blind and, as chairman of the mayor’s advisory committee for persons with disabilities, he helped develop a ballot for the visually impaired in next month’s civic election. Kamloops will be the first municipality in B.C. to offer the unique ballot. “It enables us to go into the booth by ourselves and completely vote independently,” Harding said, adding he has until now relied on the aid of his wife to vote. Essentially, anyone who asks for the ballot will get a package that includes a template with raised plastic beads accompanied with Braille documentation.

It will be a first in B.C. when Braille ballots will be used in Kamloops during the Nov. 19 civic election. While Braille ballots were available in the 2009 provincial election, their use in next month’s municipal election will be a first at a city level. The initiative sprung from the mind of Todd Harding, legally blind and chairman of the mayor’s advisory committee for persons with disabilities, after he experienced the independence of voting provincially.

After more than two years of pain and disappointment, there is some hope for a Merritt family fighting to raise awareness of the potential damage exposure to antidepressants can have on babies. The Schultz family had asked Royal Inland Hospital to look at protocols in how it deals with newborns exposed to antidepressants. In September, a hospital committee met and started to bring forward recommendations. RIH chief of staff David Sanden told KTW the hospital’s perinatal review committee has looked into the case of baby Matthew Schultz and deemed there is “value” in exploring further the issues raised by the family. The review has been forwarded to RIH’s quality committee, another group that can continue to study the issue. Matthew died at RIH on Feb. 21, 2009, only two hours into his life. The Schultzes are convinced the cause of death can be linked to an antidepressant

drug called Effexor, also known by its clinical name venlafaxine, prescribed to mom Christiane during her pregnancy. Sanden said the perinatal committee focused on two issues that relate to babies and mothers. More specifically, it has been recommended physicians have a heightened awareness of expectant mothers who are on antidepressants and, if possible, recommend moms stop taking the drugs prior to delivery. Sanden said the committee has also suggested a general awareness that children born to mothers taking antidepressants require a closer watch after birth. XSee DOCTOR A14

Five vying for mayor’s chair in Kamloops By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER
Just when it appeared there would be no race for the mayor’s chair, a handful of candidates stepped forward at the deadline to challenge incumbent Peter Milobar. There are a five candidates vying for the city’s top political job, including Milobar, Brian Alexander, Gordon Chow, Dieter Dudy and Frank Stewart. The mayor said he doesn’t know much about some of the names on the list, but added it won’t change how he runs his campaign. Milobar said he is proud of his nine-year
KAMLOOPS VOTES NOV. 19, 2011
MORE CIVIC ELECTION NEWS PAGE A7 track record as a civic politician and believes voters need to consider council as a whole and, more specifically, candidates who can work together as a team. Milobar is planning to release his election platform on Wednesday, Oct. 19. “I look forward to discussing the next three years with the electorate,” he said.
There is one name that will not only be familiar to Milobar, but also to Kamloops voters — Brian Alexander. Alexander ran for mayor in 2008, but finished a distant third to Milobar and secondplace finisher Murphy Kennedy. The at-times controversial candidate picked up just 921 votes, or five per cent of the vote. Alexander said he decided to run again because he didn’t want Milobar to be acclaimed without a challenge. He expects the Lorne Street parkade project and the potential health concerns raised by wireless water meters to be prominent issues in the campaign, but he also plans to raise unresolved issues he
campaigned for in 2008, such as more recreational facilities in the parks for all ages. The small-business owner admitted he is in an uphill battle to unseat the mayor. Alexander first garnered attention as an outspoken critic of the previous council and drew the ire of the city after he started the website kamloopsbullshit. com, on which he made disparaging remarks about staff and council. He was banned from city facilities, but not council chambers. The ban has since been lifted. He received more attention earlier this year after several court appearances for a speeding ticket, at which he identified
himself as a freeman and repudiated the Criminal Code of Canada. Alexander said he is anticipating some voters will turn away from him because they don’t understand the issues he has tried to raise as a freeman. But if asked, he will gladly clarify his position. “Really, this is about the community and community issues and I’m not going to try and focus on that stuff,” he said. “If it comes up, I’ll address it.” Dudy said he also ran to offer some competition to Milobar. “I felt it’s not right for somebody to just get the job for nothing,” he said.
But, Dudy, who operates Thistle Farm in Westsyde with his wife, doesn’t want his candidacy to be seen as frivolous and plans to run a complete campaign. He said a major focus will be creating economic development without it being at the expense of the environment. Dudy, who is the president of the Sun Peaks and Region Farmers’ Market and past president of the B.C. Association of Farmers’ Markets, also plans to raise issues around agriculture, food security and how they work within the community. “I want to do the best I can and let the chips fall where they will,” he said.
Stewart said he decided to run because he wants to bring a positive approach to council. He said councillors may agree or disagree, but they need to be accountable for how they plan to spend tax dollars in the short and long term. Stewart wants to create a successful environment for business, especially small- and medium-sized businesses, while encouraging and supporting green initiatives. The longtime resident is no stranger to politics, as he organized and ran for the Green party provincially in 2005. KTW was not able to reach Chow and Stewart for comment before press deadline.

It’s always a tough call on how much wardrobe preparation you’ll need for winter. Several weather agencies have made their predictions for what the Kamloops region can expect this winter, but they almost always differ in some way. The most recent forecast from AccuWeather is calling for the coldest winter in B.C. in 20 years. That prediction is in part based on a second straight winter La Nina weather pattern. The Old Farmer’s Almanac is calling for temperatures in the north to be below average, while the southern portion of the province is expected to be warmer than normal. Jim Steele, Environment Canada’s Kamloops-based meteorologist, questioned the science and accuracy of the forecast put forward by AccuWeather. “I think it would be dubious at best,” he told KTW. Steele said AccuWeather is tying its prediction to a La Nina system, but explained there is no distinct link between colder weather and the winter phenomenon. Instead, Steele said, the temperatures are

more dependent on wind patterns and the jet stream from the north. La Nina is an ocean-atmosphere phenomenon, the counterpart of El Nino. La Nina results in lower-than normal seasurface temperatures; El Nino sees higher-thannormal sea-surface temperatures. For its part, Environment Canada is predicting below-normal temperatures and abovenormal precipitation for the Kamloops region in December, January and February. The agency is also predicting a La Nina system, but is instead calling for a milder version of the weather pattern. Steele noted the effects of a La Nina don’t generally start to show themselves until January and last into spring. It was a similar story last winter, when the weather pattern hovered around Kamloops until almost summer. In the end, predicting the weather is much like a horoscope, Steele said, adding many longrange forecasts ultimately turn out to be wrong. The meteorologist said it’s probably safe to go buy that ski pass you’ve been thinking about, but it isn’t likely necessary to stock up the closet with winter boots. Interestingly, the Weather Network’s fall forecast is calling for conditions to be about normal, with a slow transition to winter.

Retailers introduced to new plastic money By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
A representative from the Bank of Canada was in Kamloops this week speaking to local retailers about new bank notes slated to enter circulation next month. Farid Salji, a Vancouver-based analyst with the nation’s central bank, brought with him samples of the new $100 bills, which are made of a new material and feature
many advanced security features. “They’re more durable, they’re environmentally friendly and they’re secure,” he said of the new polymer bank notes, expected to show up at banks and stores across Canada in November. “This is state-of-theart.” The new $100 bills still feature a portrait of Robert Borden, Canada’s eighth prime minister, but the look is a departure from the 2004-series of hundreds
Canadians have become used to handling. Most noticeable is a large vertical “window” on the bill, featuring two holograms. There is another smaller window, which is shaped like a maple leaf. Salji said the windows, which would be tough for a counterfeiter to duplicate, are for security. “They cannot replicate the bill itself,” he said. “All they can do is mimic features.”
Police nab pair for own penalty box By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER
Just as the Kamloops Blazers put the finishing touches on the Kelowna Rockets at Interior Savings Centre on Sunday night (Oct. 16), Kamloops Mounties were earning a W of their own outside the Lorne Street arena. During the third period of the WHL B.C. Division tilt — which Kamloops won 3-2 — a security guard outside ISC was approached by two boys, ages 15 and 17, who said they had been victims of an attempted robbery by two men while walking in nearby Riverside Park. The security guard alerted police inside the arena. “As the two youths began providing the officers with the details of the incident, one of the youths spotted the two suspects near the entry doors to the Interior Savings Centre,” said
Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. He said officers at the site approached the pair, who ran but were arrested a short distance away from the ISC. The robbery is alleged to have occurred at about 8:30 p.m. Learned said the two suspects, ages 23 and 18, were taken back to the Kamloops RCMP’s Battle Street detachment, where they were questioned by officers. The 18-year-old suspect was later released without charge, while the 23-year-old was let go pending a potential court date in the near future. Police will likely recommend robbery charges to the Crown. Learned said no one was injured in the alleged robbery or the subsequent arrest. The 23-year-old suspect is not known to police.
Salji and representatives from the Kamloops RCMP were at Aberdeen Mall yesterday (Oct. 17), showing the new bills to retailers and educating them about how to stay one step ahead of counterfeiters. The Bank of Canada works closely with police across the country to help stop the spread of funny money. Development of the new bank notes cost approximately $20 million, Salji said, and the polymer bills cost about 19 cents each to produce. The old cotton-based bills cost about 10 cents apiece, he said. According to the Bank of Canada, polymer bank notes have a life-span of about 17 years, compared to a maximum of 10 years for cotton bills. Polymer bills are waterproof and cannot

be torn. Even so, Salji said the 2011-series notes likely won’t remain in use for as long as they could, given the everchanging technology of counterfeiters and the need for cash to be kept up-to-date and secure. There is presently an estimated $54 billion in
Canadian cash in circulation, including about 1.52-billion genuine bank notes. Polymer bank notes are made of plypropylene, a durable plastic used in everything from nylon ropes to reusable containers. They are already in use in more than

Slim, Strong & Healthy Bodies The annual return of salmon up the Adams River has defied expectations, with more than 400,000 of the fish anticipated. Earlier estimates had pegged the run at about 58,000. KTW file photos
Salmon centre of attention By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER
It may not be the once-in-a-lifetime run from 2010, but this year’s Adams River sockeye-salmon run is still expected to be a spectacular phenomenon. Early estimates for the 2011 run put returning sockeye salmon at about 58,000 — but the number has now jumped to 400,000. “It’s really good news,” said Jim Cooperman of the Adams River Salmon Society. He said those numbers are at the high end of the long-term average for the second year of the salmon’s fouryear cycle. Last year wouldn’t even be considered an anomaly, as more then 3.8-million sockeye returned to the river to spawn, making 2010 the biggest run in a century. Salmon watchers have been concerned with dwindling stocks over the years. Cooperman said there are many stresses on the salmon, includ-
ing warming ocean temperatures from climate change, salmon farms, disease, low river flows and warming river waters. “All these factors are certainly resulting in the concern about the salmon but, at least for last year and this year, things are looking up,” he said. Not only did the river turn pink with salmon in 2010 but, for the month of October, the world was welcomed as tourists descended on the region to witness history. At the centre of the celebration was Roderick Haig-Brown Park, the site of the run. More than 200,000 people visited the park during the three-week Salute to Sockeye Festival. The region isn’t expected to attract nearly as many people for this year’s run, but Cooperman still figures thousands of people will turn out. For anyone who wants to make the trek to the park, the height of the run is predicted for Oct. 21. The Adams River

Shaw cables into race representing youth KAMLOOPS VOTES NOV. 19, 2011
Shaw weighed in on two issues dominating the election campaign — a planned Lorne Street parkade and the proposed Ajax mine south of Aberdeen. He said he would prefer the city look for a better alternative for a downtown parkade and suggested the city consider a private-public partnership to build the structure. As for the mine, he said it’s too early in the environmental-review process to take a stance on the project. Twenty-four people are running for councillor position: Nancy Bepple, Dino Bernardo, Donovan Cavers, Ken Christian, John De Cicco, Nelly Dever, Aaron Duczak, Bryce Eberle, Tina Lange, Ayren Messmer, Chad Moats, John Noakes,
Ray Nyuli, Chris Ortner, Dennis Paget, Andy Philpot, Greg Power, Brenda Prevost, Peter Sharp, Brendan Shaw, Donna Shedeger, Arjun Singh, Marg Spina and Pat Wallace.
School board battle A total of 21 candidates — including 13 in Kamloops — are vying for open trustee chairs on the KamloopsThompson school district’s board of education. Eight incumbents — Joan Cowden, Diane Dosch, Annette Glover, Kathleen Karpuk and Gerald Watson in Kamloops, as well as Denise Harper in Chase, John Harwood in Clearwater and Joanne Stokes in Barriere — are seeking re-election to the board. Challengers from Kamloops are Lynda Douglas, Ryan Foster, Boris Gimbarzevsky, Mitchell Messmer, Adrian Miller, Tanya Orozco, Acacia Schmietenknop and Meghan Wade. Of those newcom-
ers, Wade is the only one with experience as a trustee in SD73, having served on the board between 2005 and 2008. The SD73 board is made up of superintendent Terry Sullivan and nine trustees, five of whom represent Kamloops. The four outlying areas of Chase, Logan Lake, Barriere and Clearwater are repre-
sented by one trustee each. Incumbents Harper and Harwood are running unopposed in Chase and Clearwater, and will therefore be back on the board. Logan Lake had previously been represented by Diane Dosch, but she moved to Kamloops and is now running locally. Four candidates —
Cara Holmstrup, Cara McKelvey, Melvin Thistlethwaite and Jodi Tilburt — are seeking the vacant trustee seat in Logan Lake. In Barriere, incumbent Joanne Stokes is running against newcomer Rhonda Kershaw. The only incumbent trustee not seeking reelection is board chair Ken Christian, who has
thrown his hat into the crowded ring of potential city councillors.

ENTER TO WIN! Where is this?
He is among the youngest candidates in the Nov. 19 civic election, but it hasn’t stopped a local realtor from seeking a seat on council. Brendan Shaw, a 23-year-old manager of Royal Lepage Kamloops, decided to run to represent the younger generation in the city. “Our age bracket is maybe not completely represented the way it should be,” he said. If elected, Shaw wants to focus on economic, social and environmental responsibilities for future generations. “I really want to make a difference politically in town,” he said, adding he’s been an avid volunteer for a number of community causes since childhood. Shaw said job creation is a big issue, noting Kamloops needs more businesses to come to town. However, he credited work by Venture Kamloops to attract employers to the city.

Probing the portfolios of our possible politicians
NE OF THE BIGGEST issues facing Kamloops is the proposed Ajax mine, which, if approved, would begin extracting gold and silver immediately south of Aberdeen by 2013. The mine proposal has already resulted in a flurry of opposition, capped this month with Kamloops city council asking federal Environment Minister Peter Kent for a panel review. How, then, will the current civic election play out among candidates who own shares in Ajax ownership? Of the 29 candidates running for mayor and councillor, two — incumbent councillor Nancy Bepple and mayoral challenger Gordon Chow — own shares in Abacus Mineral and Exploration, the mining company that has a 49 per cent stake in the Ajax property. According to statements of disclosure filed at city hall with nomination papers, Chow’s financial assets include shares in Abacus, Colossus Mineral, Rubicon Mineral and Ivanhoe Energy. Bepple has an equally heavy mining/energy stock portfolio, including Abacus, Provident Energy, Canadian Oil Sands, Pembina Pipeline, Inmet Mining, Barrick Gold and BAM Split, the latter of which owns 53-million shares in Brookfield Properties, the company that owns the private park in New York City now occuppied by those protesting Wall Street shenanigans. Interestingly, Bepple also owns shares in Fairfax Financial Holdings, the company that brought former president George W. Bush to Toronto in September for a speaking engagement. The question is: Should a person’s financial holdings have an impact on a voter’s decision in the ballot booth?
CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom
MUSINGS Should financial holdings reflect a person’s values in the minds of voters or should those trekking to the polls on Nov.19 focus solely on what they feel the candidates can and will do within the boundaries of Kamloops? Obviously, Bepple, if re-elected, and Chow, if elected, will be forced to remove themselves from all discussions on the Ajax proposal, due to a conflict of interest. Bepple has already done so this year whenever council discussed the controversial mining proposal. But, does ownership of shares in Abacus equal even tacit approval of Ajax? After all, Ajax approval is good for Abacus shareholders. Beyond the immediate mining controversy in Kamloops, do financial holdings hold any sway over voters? Mayor Peter Milobar has interests in the energy and mining sector, with shares in New Gold and Encanna. Milobar also owns shares in Starbucks, the Seattle-based company often the target of protesters. Council candidate Ray Nyuli has shares in a number of companies, including the mining sector — Formations Metals and Teck Resources — as does fellow council candidate
Brendan Shaw — Taseko Mines, Midlands Minerals and SRSN Ventures. It is doubtful a person’s personal financial portfolio will factor in voting habits but, in these days of ethical investing and “Occupy Wall Street” protests, who knows how deep the electorate will delve in forming an opinion? ■ The nomination papers house a treasure-trove of interesting information. • Seven city hall candidates have interest in properties other than their residence — Shaw (seven properties), Tina Lange (four), Marg Spina (three), Milobar (one), Chris Ortner (one), Andy Philpot (one), Dino Bernardo (one). • Two candidates — council hopefuls Ayren Messmer and Donna Shedeger — listed as liabilities student loans. • There are many business owners and retirees among those seeking seats at city hall, but only one — Shedeger — whose income is derived from employment insurance. In this day of neverending recession, it’s not a stretch to consider Shedeger likely has more in common with the voter base than any other challenger. • Where do the candidates live? Councillor: Westsyde (5), Downtown (4), Sahali (4), South Kamloops (4), North Kamloops (3), Aberdeen (1), Valleyview (1), Juniper Ridge (1), Barnhartvale (1). The four mayoral candidates live in North Kamloops, Westsyde, Valleyview and Barnhartvale. The 13 people seeking five city seats on the Kamloops-Thompson board of education come from all corners of the city: Brocklehurst (3), Westsyde (3), Sahali (2), Aberdeen (2), South Kamloops (1), Barnhartvale (1) and North Kamloops (1).
If you don’t vote, why? In the last civic election in Kamloops, in 2008, about 28 per cent of eligible voters bothered to set aside a few moments on a Saturday to fill out a ballot. It’s not as if the process is difficult. In fact, the way it is organized makes it easy as pie to exercise the franchise on a municipal election. Voters simply need to find a nearby school and mark the ballot. Pick eight councillors — or pick one, or three, or five, or none — from the 24 names on the ballot. It’s up to you. Pick one of the five names on the mayoral ticket. Pick five of the 13 names on the board of education list. It might take you a half-hour — an hour tops — to leave home, vote and return in plenty of time to catch Hockey Night in Canada. For whatever reason, the majority of Kamloopsians don’t vote at the one level of government that most affects them. Property taxes, garbage fees, recreation costs, those potholes on the street in front of your house and, yes, that proposed parkade next to Riverside Park — they are all issues controlled by city hall. By filling out a ballot, you have some control on who at city hall will control the issues that most affect you, financially and socially. It would be interesting to know why most of us don’t vote. If you happen to be a voter who doesn’t cast a ballot in civic elections, tell us why. Send the reason(s) to editor@ kamloopsthisweek.com. Maybe there are explanations we hadn’t considered. If we receive some responses, we will publish them in a future edition of KTW.

Why should I cast my vote for you? Editor: Voting is a fundamental right of democratic citizens. However, as someone who will be voting for the first time in the Nov. 19 municipal election, I hate to say I already feel discouraged. Throughout high school and university, I have always wished I could have a say in Canadian politics and now that I can (on a small scale at least), I’m not entirely sure which of the candidates represents me. Thinking about this, it may seem strange that I want to be won over by a politician, but I might even say having that desire partly spells out why voter turnout is so low. As the last few weeks wind
KAMLOOPS VOTES • NOV. 19, 2011 down, I hope I will see more information around town. I assume nearly all of the candidates have Facebook pages but, unless I keep my head in a newspaper, I don’t know their names. I see few reasons as to why I should entitle any of the candidates to my taxpayer dollars and to represent my decisionmaking process. I hold the opinion that a candidate’s amount of devotion can best be measured by his or her signage.
Certainly, it is difficult to get people involved — especially municipally — but what better way to win friends and influence people than by telling them you’re the right choice? I invite future councillors to not stimulate more voter apathy. If they can win my heart, they can have my vote. I’m just afraid I won’t give my heart to someone whose name I don’t know. Justin Greek Kamloops
Beware the views of an open-pit mine Editor: The New Homes supplement in the Sept. 27 edition of KTW includes a great article by Jessica Wallace on the Aberdeen West Highlands development. I particularly like the description of the location, with the wonderful views and all the convenient shopping. There is even an opportunity to take part in the planning of a new park. However, the description leaves out the fact there is a huge open-pit mine planned less than two kilome-
tres west of this lovely neighbourhood. If approved, there will be daily blasting of 180,000 tonnes of rock to obtain 60,000 tonnes of useable ore. The city and the province tell us a “comprehensive environmental study” is underway, but with only one person representing the interests of the 86,000 people of Kamloops. Two elementary schools are visible from where KGHM Abacus/ Ajax officials are planning to keep their explosives. In addition, Upper
Sahali, in particular the area around McGowan Park, will have an exceptional view of the east waste-rock dump at the proposed mine. Meanwhile, another New Homes article, What to look for in a green home, doesn’t give information about how a person can check to see what is going to impact that environment in the future. People considering a purchase anywhere in Kamloops, but particularly in Aberdeen, Pineview Valley, Knutsford and Dufferin, may want to consider
checking out the petition requesting an independent panel review by federal Environment Minister Peter Kent. This should ensure Kamloopsians get the best possible environmental assessment of this huge project. Come by our display at the Kamloops Farmers’ Market in the downtown core, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, to take advantage of this initiative of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association.

Blazers set to chase ice dreams Editor: It’s my honour to be the head coach of the Thompson Blazers major midget hockey team for the 2011-2012 season. The B.C. Hockey Major Midget League is extremely competitive, with 11 teams throughout the province. It provides an elite level of competition for players between the ages of 15 and 17. This season, our team has players from several communities — from Enderby to Merritt — making us a truly regional team. The coaching staff looks forward to guiding the players as they meet the challenges of the season. Our mandate is to increase each player’s skill set and knowledge, along with expectation of team results. On behalf of the Thompson Blazers hockey club, I would like to thank several people for their support. First, the parents, without whose sacrifices the players’ dreams could not be met. Second, the Chase Recreation Society for providing us with more than for which we could have asked. I’d also like to thank our sponsors for supporting these young men as they pursue their dream. Finally, a big thanks goes out to Doug Copeland, Brad Fox, Jane Herman and Brooke Kynoch for their distinctive contributions. Tyler Forsythe head coach Thompson Blazers major midget hockey club

Mistaken-ID beating sends man to hospital Police say a case of mistaken identity was likely behind a vicious late-night bathroom beating at a Sahali fast-food restaurant on the weekend. Just after 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, Kamloops Mounties were called to the McDonald’s restaurant on Notre Dame Drive for a reported assault. Police arrested a 17-year-old male outside the restaurant. Investigators believe the teen had beaten a 22-year-old man over the head and hands with a wooden club inside the restaurant’s bathroom. The victim was taken to hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. “It would appear the victim did not know the assailant and it appeared to be a case of mistaken identity,” said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. The suspect was released into the care of his parents pending a court date.
Two-vehicle fire sdfasf Investigators are trying to determine the cause of a suspicious fire on the weekend that damaged two vehicles. Kamloops Mounties say the blaze took place at about 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, Oct. 16, in the 1400-block of River Street — east of the downtown core — damaging a Jeep YJ and a Dodge Caravan. Both vehicles were unoccupied at the time of the fire. Anyone with information is asked to call police at 250828-3000 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.
A collision — but who is at fault? Kamloops Mounties are looking for the public’s help in figuring out who’s to blame for a collision between a vehicle and a pedestrian on the North Shore on the weekend.
POLICE BEAT At about 11:30 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 15, emergency crews were called to an area of
Eighth Street in North Kamloops. An 18-year-old man suffered serious head and knee injuries and was taken to Royal Inland Hospital after he was struck by a vehicle. Police believe the
man was running across the street when the collision occurred, but are still hoping to speak to more witnesses. Anyone with information is asked to call RCMP at 250-8283000.

In addition, BCUOMA is reprising its successful ambassador program this summer – with two ambassadors touring the province to educate and raise awareness of the importance of used oil and antifreeze recycling.

ROAD SHOW UNCOVERS HUGE TREASURE IN KAMLOOPS
PUBLIC NOTICE: THE ROAD SHOW
HAS MOVED TO NEW LOCATION DAVID THOMPSON HOTEL VICTORIA ST. By Amy Luccianio - RoadShow Staff Writer
Canada’s largest appraiser and buyer of silver coins and gold estate jewelry has uncovered a massive collection of gold and silver during their current stop in Kamloops. The Canadian Treasures Road Show four day stop in Kamloops this week was nothing out of the ordinary with local folks coming into the show selling their silver and gold coins and unwanted or unused gold jewelry. People usually have a few hundred dollars coming to them from the sale of their items reports Road Show manager Amy Luccianio however we were in shock when a gentleman walked into the show with a dolly loaded with three card board boxes full of silver and gold coins. When we began to sort through the coins it became very obvious that this would take several hours as there was thousands and thousands of coins both Canadian and US. The huge collection was accumulated over fifty years by the now current owners grandfather. Kevin Scott who himself just recently retired shared his amassing story of how his grandfather found most of the coins while working at the municipal dump in Brandon Manitoba. Papa was the only employee at the dump for thirty three years and during that time he set up a small car washing and cleaning side business at the dump and it was free of charge in exchange for any pop bottles or beer bottles the customers would donate.
Papa also offered a free interior vacuum service with the car wash and he would always find a few coins in the ashtray or on the floor and 99 % of the time his customers would tell him to keep the coins. For thirty some years Papa would come home each day and put the few coins in a glass jar and over the years the collection turned into hundreds of jars of silver coins. I can clearly remember my grand father saying some day we will be rich, rich, rich when I sell my coins and then he would break into a big belly laugh that would rattle the dishes in grammas china cabinet. Papa never did cash in his coins however he spent many a night picking out what he thought would some day become rare or collector coins and would tell me some day this coin or that coin would be worth a fortune. My grand father passed on many years ago and left his collection to my sister and I. Now with us retiring we decided we would see what the collection would be worth so we brought them to the Canadian Treasures Road Show in Kamloops. After several hours of going over the coins the road s h o w staff had in fact
discovered twenty one US silver dollars that had the rare mint mark from the San Francisco Mint mint and these coins alone are worth eight hundred dollars apiece. They also uncovered one half ounce gold coin and seven ¼ ounce gold coins. The gold coins we decided to keep and give to our grand children however as none of our children or grandchildren have an interest in coin collecting we decided to sell the baulk of Papas collection as they were worth many times their face value as the price of silver is at world record highs The total weight of the coins was 102 lbs and the Road Show staff offered us a fantastic price of...well lets just say Papa was right when he said some day we would be rich. It was sad to hand over Papas coins but we are sure he would get a huge belly laugh if he knew his silver coins earned us enough to pay for a big part of his great grand children’s schooling. The Road Show is back in Kamloops at the David Thompson Hotel on Victoria St. all this week from Monday Oct. 17 to Sunday Oct.23

Last month’s heat has gone south and frost has arrived in the mornings — sure signs fall is here to stay. And, with the brisk season comes the annual fall edition of the BC Home Show, which rolls into McArthur Island Sports Centre for three days this weekend. Jim Rice created BC HomeShows in 1998 and has built the venture into one of the province’s biggest and best home shows. And, as always, admission is free. This weekend’s fall show takes place on Friday, Oct. 21 (5 p.m. to 9 p.m.), Saturday, Oct. 22 (10 a.m. to 6 p.m.) and Sunday. Oct. 23 (10 a.m. to 4 p.m.). At least 10,000 people are expected to wander through McArthur Island Sports Centre this weekend to check out the wares and services of the hundreds of exhibitors taking part in the B.C. Interior’s largest home show. The fall home show gives consumers a chance to see new products, new green products — all kinds of products related to house and home.
Home-related products, interior decorating, renovations, winter recreationrelated products and services are some of what visitors will experience. But, there will be much, much more. And, because the Kamloops show is among the best-attended on the BC HomeShows circuit, patrons are urged to take Rice’s advice when planning their visit. Since the home show is extremely popular and can be very busy, Rice said the best time to attend is right when the doors open. “You miss the rush and you get good parking,” he said. BC HomeShows Ltd. has grown to 12 shows annually since its inception 13 years ago. Rice produces more than 150 shows and now operates the largest independent home show in the British Columbia Interior. BC HomeShows Ltd. serves the communities of Kamloops, Kelowna, Merritt, Penticton, Salmon Arm and Vernon.

Doctor grateful family raised issue XFrom A1
He noted there has already been what he called a “soft implementation” of the recommendations at Royal Inland. The Schultz case will also be passed on to Catherine Cronin, the Interior Health Authority’s new medical director of perinatal and child health network, for further review. The family is expected to meet with the medical director sometime in the near future. However, there is no timeline for when a formal policy or protocols will be implemented, as the recommendations still need to be passed on to several larger committees at the hospital and health authority. But, Sanden is thankful the Schultz family has raised the issue within the hospital. “I think it’s important. In many ways, I’m grateful they brought it forward,” he said. “I think it’s been a good thing.” Word that Matthew’s case has started to spur change at RIH was greeted as good news by the Schultzes. “We’re ecstatic it’s moving forward at least on one front,” said Amery Schultz, Matthew’s father. The family was hoping the BC Coroners Service would order an inquest into the death of their son, but was

disappointed when the agency declined. The Schultzes are also looking for the government to acknowledge there could be a problem with pregnant women taking antidepressants and to implement protocols to monitor babies exposed to the prescription drugs, as is done for illegal drugs. Schultz said he’s not sure the protocols — which are now being considered at RIH — had they been in place at the time of Matthew’s death, would have saved his son, but he said it might have given
him a chance. “If they are going to be exposed to this stuff [antidepressants], let’s give them a fighting chance at birth,” he said. According to the original coroner’s report, a detailed autopsy on Matthew showed no anatomic cause of death, but the possibility was raised of venlafaxine exposure being a contributing factor. Brain-tissue samples were sent to a research facility in the U.S. for examination to determine if there was an underlying susceptibility to the class of antidepressants. But, the report noted, it was unclear how prenatal exposure to Effexor might have contributed to Matthew’s death, if at all. The report concluded the significance of the exposure to venlafaxine in utero is unknown and made no recommendations. Unbeknownst to the couple, venlafaxine had been under a Health Canada warning since 2004. The government agency had advised that newborns may be adversely affected when pregnant women take a specific group of antidepressants during the third trimester of pregnancy. The list included venlafaxine.

Braille ballots could be used by about 300 XFrom A1
Harding said what makes the system so easy is that the Braille ballot will have a list of candidates and corresponding numbers. He said the Braille documentation is the key because it is impossible to memorize the order of all the candidates. For this year’s civic election, there are five mayoral candidates, 24 council candidates and 13 school-trustee hopefuls. The visually impaired-friendly ballots will be available at all polling stations, including at the advance polls and at the hospital polling station. There are about 300 residents who are considered legally blind
in Kamloops. Harding said he first got the idea after the last provincial election in 2009, in which a similar ballot was used to help the blind vote. He figured it could work in Kamloops for the civic election.
Chief electoral officer Cindy Kennedy said the city was more than happy to help with the project, but noted it was mostly Harding’s work. “For the visually impaired, the opportunity for them to be
in a voting booth by themselves, rather than having someone there with them so they can mark their own ballot, I’m sure that’s huge for them,” she said. It costs less than $1,000 to offer Braille ballots for the election.
“I have learned that Nelly does not have predetermined ideas but rather wants to see all the facts and listen to both sides of any issue to decide what is best for Kamloops. These are the qualities you need in a councillor. For these reasons I am supporting Nelly in her bid to become a councillor.” Jack Juusola - Canadian Tire Store Owner

Public to learn petition numbers
PICKS OF THE WEEK!
By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER
The results of a counterpetition to stop the Lorne Street parkade — and perhaps the entire fate of the project — will be revealed at today’s city council meeting. City officials were just completing the final verification of signatures Monday afternoon (Oct.17), and confirmed a report with the results
from the petition will be made public at the Oct. 18 regular meeting. “The process will be finished and there will be a final report,” said corporate community affairs director Len Hrycan. He noted, depending on the results, council could be asked to decide the fate of the parkade project. On Oct. 11, Friends of Riverside Park, the group leading the counter-petition, ended
a five-week campaign by handing in a box with 9,752 signatures. Opponents had until Oct. 11 to gather 10 per cent of the electorate’s signatures (6,533), forcing city council to drop the project or send it to referendum. Members of Friends of Riverside Park said they are expecting about 15 per cent of the signatures to be considered invalid. On Aug. 30, council gave
final approval to a bylaw to borrow $8 million to build the parkade, triggering the alternative-approval process. The results of the petition are expected to include a breakdown of the number of petitions received, rejected and the reasons behind the rejection. Last week, Mayor Peter Milobar suggested if the petition is successful, the entire parkade issue be dealt with by the next city council.
Wagamese waits for sentence firstname.lastname@example.org
It will be at least another month until Richard Wagamese learns whether or not he’ll be spending the holidays behind bars. The 56-year-old former TV personality had his matters adjourned in Kamloops provincial court on Monday, Oct. 17. In May, the award-winning native author and journalist pleaded guilty to three impaired-driving charges, all stemming from incidents taking place in a two-week period last year. The Crown is seeking a jail sentence in the range of 11 months, while the defence wants a sentence to be served in the community. Wagamese, whose legal name is Richard Gilkinson, was supposed to be sentenced last week. Before that hearing could take place,
however, the Crown received word from police indicating Wagamese is a wanted man in Eastern Canada. He has three outstanding warrants in Ontario — two from 2002 for breaching his probation and one for credit-card fraud from 1993. At the Kamloops Law Courts last Tuesday, prosecutor Chris Balison entered the warrant documents as exhibits for Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame to consider in sentencing Wagamese for the drunk-driving guilty pleas. Defence lawyer Michelle Stanford said Wagamese would like to have the Ontario charges waived to Kamloops, so he can plead guilty to all of them. However, the court heard it could take upwards of six months for the paperwork to arrive in B.C. Two of Wagamese’s

three impaired-driving charges stem from incidents in Kamloops, while the third took place in Calgary. All were in the first two weeks of March 2010. Court has heard his blood-alcohol levels following the incidents were between 0.233 and 0.321 — well above the legal limit of 0.08. During sentencing submissions earlier this month, Stanford said Wagamese has been diagnosed with posttraumatic stress disorder relating to abuse suffered at the hands of residential-school staff as a child. Stanford said her
client was in a “dissociative state” at the time of the incidents. Wagamese, who used to host the CFJCTV7 series One Native Life, has more than 50 convictions on his criminal record, including three previous entries for drunk driving. Most of the other convictions are for property-related offences and breaches of court orders. He is considered one of Canada’s foremost native authors and journalists, with a career spanning three decades. Last summer, he was recognized with an honourary doctorate
from Thompson Rivers University. Wagamese has written several books, including the awardwinning Keeper ‘n Me, Dream Wheels and Ragged Company. Lawyers will meet on Thursday, Oct. 20, to fix a date for sentencing on the drunkdriving guilty pleas, which is expected to be some time during the week of Nov. 14. At some point before then, Stanford hopes to have the Ontario charges waived to Kamloops so Wagamese can plead guilty to them here and receive one sentence reflecting all the charges.

Say Amen to dementia worries
ANY PEOPLE KNOW DR. DANIEL AMEN – WHO IS REGULARLY SEEN ON PBS – WAS HERE IN KAMLOOPS EARLY IN 2010. Hundreds of people came to hear him speak about how to improve brain health and functioning and ward off dementia. Thanks to School District 73, Amen is back in town on Thursday, Oct. 20 at 7 p.m. at the Calvary Community Church, 1205 Rogers Way. SD73 is bringing Amen to Kamloops to address teachers and staff during a two-day in-service conference and, through a partnership with Thompson Rivers University and the Kamloops branch of the Canadian Mental Health Association, is offering a public session. If you have seen him on PBS, you know what to expect: Complicated, difficult neuroscience made easy to understand with a healthy dose of laughter and fun. This is a must-see presentation for people
who have a dementia history in their family or for those who just want to do everything they can to improve their brain health. In fact, drag your teenagers along — kicking and screaming, if need be — because Amen’s message is as positive as it is powerful. You can improve your brain’s health and impact all areas of your life positively with simple, easy-tofollow steps. And, like most things related to our health, it’s never too late to start and the earlier you start the more you benefit. If you come to this presentation, you will leave with information but, hopefully, also with some powerful skills, including methods to change your negative thinking and moods. You will pick up seven tips to create a brain-healthy life for yourself and
your family. You will find out what foods, nutrients and brain-body exercises will increase your brain health and delay or prevent Alzheimer’s. (Here’s a hint: Amen is an avid table-

If you have questions about your brain health or any other mental health issue, write to us at Kamloops@cmha. bc.ca, because any question you have is also in the minds of hundreds of others too shy to ask — and because we love to hear from you.

Good for your Health!

Construction in Kamloops this year could go down as the tale of two sectors. While residential-permit activity at city hall has taken a bit of a dive in 2011, commercial construction has been there to pick up the slack. Through September in 2011, the city has handed out $50 million in commercial building permits, compared to $40 million at the same time last year. However, the $79 million in residential permits issued is a drop from the $107 million in 2010. The city has recorded $137 million in construction activity in 2011, compared to $153 million through the same span last year. In September, the city handed out $11.4 million in building permits, compared to $14.8 million during the same month in 2010. David Trawin, director of development and engineering services, said the solid numbers from September were better than expected. “It’s one of the strongest commercial years, which has helped keep us strong,” he said. Trawin is now predicting the city will hit $150 million in overall permits, exceeding the target for the year. In 2010, the city issued $191-million worth of building permits, but expected that number to drop in 2011 to about $140 million. The city issued $2.3-million in commercialbuilding permits for the month, a slight dip from the $2.9-million value in September 2010. The number of single-family permits issued in September hit 14, two-thirds of the 21 permits issued at the same time last year. The city handed out $7.6-million worth of residential permits last month, compared to $10.8 million in September 2010. Kamloops has only topped the $200-million mark in permits once, in 2008, when it doled out $207-million worth of permits, which remains a record.

Storm sheds hockey light on Rising Sun By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
HE KAMLOOPS Storm are a junior B hockey club, but some of the team’s members must have felt like they were in the NHL on Thursday, Oct. 13. A group of about 25 hockey-crazy female Japanese exchange students attending Thompson Rivers University visited McArthur Island Sports
Centre, where the Storm gave them a tour of the dressing room and a quick hockey tutorial. “It’s kind of neat,” said Colten De Frias, the Storm’s leading scorer. “To bring a bunch of people in who don’t know anything about hockey and showing them our dressing room and all of our gear, I think it’s pretty cool.” The students from J.F. Oberlin University in Tokyo are studying
English, tourism and cultural studies at TRU as part of a four-month program. Most of them plan on being flight attendants, so learning to interact with Westerners in a casual setting is part of the course’s curriculum. “The goal for today is to get them familiar with Canadian culture,” course instructor Heather Young said. “A lot of them have expressed interest in knowing more
about hockey.” And, truth be told, a lot of them have expressed interest in knowing the boys who play the game. “In Japan, I haven’t seen a hockey player,” exchange student Yuka Kobayashi said. “I want to meet them.” The girls were given a tour of the Storm’s dressing room and some of them were brave enough to try on sweat-soiled equipment. “[The] pads are very
big and smell a little bit stinky,” Kobayashi said. Many of the students covered their noses and wondered why the odd smell lingered on their hands. “They take their hands out of the gloves and it’s just smelly and they give you that disgusting look like, ‘How do you wear that?’,” De Frias said. After the tour of the dressing room, the Storm faced off with some of the students in a road-hockey game

outside McArthur on a basketball court. “These girls haven’t had much coaching, I don’t think, but they’re enjoying themselves,” Storm bench boss Geoff Smith said. “All the girls are smiling and happy and it’s nice to introduce our sport to the Japanese students.” Hundreds of pictures were snapped, many of them by a row of girls peering through a chain-link fence at the road-hockey action.
“I like Jacky [Lu],” said Eriko Nara, a Japanese student who took a liking to the Taiwanese Storm forward. “He’s so muscular.” Storm owner and GM Barry Dewar said the experience was rewarding for both his players and the visiting students. “It’s good for the kids to get to meet different people and, if we can help attract more Japanese students in the future, that’s good, too.”

Blazers off to red-hot start By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER
HE KAMLOOPS BLAZERS are tied with the Tri-City Americans atop the WHL’s Western Conference. In fact, the Blazers were tied atop the WHL’s standings with the Saskatoon Blades as of KTW’s press deadline on Monday, Oct. 17, but the Kootenay Ice, with a win on Monday night against Lethbridge, had the chance to take sole possession of first place. Log on to whl.ca for Monday’s result. Nine games into their season, the Blazers boast a 7-2 record, with three of those wins coming on the weekend against the Portland Winterhawks, Prince George Cougars and Kelowna Rockets. “It’s been a great weekend and they deserve a lot of credit,” Blazer bench boss Guy Charron said on Sunday, Oct. 16. “Especially to face Portland and come back home and win.
“I thought we rose to the occasion.” Kamloops travelled to Portland and edged the Winterhawks 5-4 on Friday, Oct. 14. Brendan Ranford scored four goals and added an assist in support of netminder Cam Lanigan, who made 37 saves in the win. Cole Cheveldave took over the goaltending duties on Saturday, Oct. 15, when the Blazers blanked the Cougars 3-0 at Interior Savings Centre. Goals from Ranford, Colin Smith and JC Lipon lifted Kamloops to a 3-2 win over Kelowna on Sunday at ISC. Cheveldave posted his second win in as many nights. Taran Kozun, the third goaltender on Kamloops’ roster, was re-assigned to the Nipawin Hawks of the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League on Monday. “With two goaltenders, there’s a better rotation,” said Charron, noting Kozun was the youngest of Kamloops’ netminding trio. The Blazers start
a three-game Alberta road swing in Red Deer against the Rebels on Wednesday, Oct. 19. Lethbridge will host Kamloops on Friday, Oct. 21, before the Blazers finish the trip in Medicine Hat on Saturday, Oct. 22.
The road trip will be a homecoming of sorts for Cheveldave, a Calgary product who is looking forward to playing in front of family and friends. “My parents have yet to be to a game and they’re going to be at all

three,” the 18-year-old netminder said. “I can’t be any more pleased to go back home.” ISC will not host another Blazers’ game until Oct. 28, when the Rockets return to the River City.

Wenger: How to get out of that ďŹ tness funk
There are plenty of ways to keep workout routines fresh, just ask KTWâ€™s resident expert
Tâ€™S EASY TO GET INTO A FITNESS FUNK. We set up a routine. We do the same thing week after week or day after day and soon, weâ€™re going through the motions or having trouble with motivation. What I enjoy most about going to fitness conferences periodically is the demonstration that there are so many ways to keep exercise interesting. Whether the body or the brain gets bored first, the result is the same â€” we stop making progress. We get a little stale. It might be as simple as adding the odd group workout with
SHAWN WENGER Fitness For MORTALS some friends. The Facebook workshop showed me how to use social networking to organize workouts with friends and stay connected through a medium Iâ€™m not very familiar with. I was one of the few people raising their hands when the instructor asked, â€œWho here is not
on Facebook?â€? The workshop on training muscle imbalances got me fired up to do those physio exercises I seem to always avoid as well as the self massage with the rollers and tennis balls I have stashed in the corner of my living room. I re-learned the valuable lesson about not overdoing something new even when it comes to stretching. I came home with a pulled anterior deltoid (front of the shoulder). Apparently, my lack of shoulder flexibility doesnâ€™t lend itself to externally rotating the upper arms and, while keeping that external rotation, internally rotating the lower arms
and then trying to lace my fingers together behind my back and press my arms backward. One day Iâ€™ll learn. Unfortunately, the workshop on the secrets of fat loss delivered the disappointing message that there is no secret. I get it, but a few small tips besides â€œdo more and eat lessâ€? would be sweet nonetheless. The one message I did enjoy was that there are many genetic hands dealt. Some are royal flushes, while others are a solid full house or, for the unlucky ones, a measley pair of twos. The point is, we
have to make the most of what we are dealt. We can develop our own personal strategy for nutrition and exercise to maximize our genetic health potential. But, if we were not dealt the royal flush, weâ€™ll never have the long shapley legs of a runway model or the abs of the gymnast or the shoulders of an Olympic swimmer. Depending on body type, we may get one or two great features, but thinking we can train the rest against the genetic rules is setting us up for failure. No matter how many squats I do and
how much cardio I log to promote fat loss, Iâ€™ll never lengthen my femurs. But, that doesnâ€™t mean I canâ€™t reap the benefits a weekly interval workout to strengthen heart and lungs and even change my personal body composition percentages. The last workshop of the day featured a Hollywood choreographer who used to work with Michael Jackson and other well-known stars. Heâ€™s started a company called Baby Boomer Bounce and teaches fitness dance classes that are full of simple but sassy
step patterns to classic music like Soul Man and R-E-S-P-E-C-T. It was a fun way to end the day before the long drive back and it reminded me that the fun factor is the most important part. Whatever the goals and the chosen way to get there, donâ€™t forget to shake it and have a few laughs.

Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

A show for big and small By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
Markus de Domenico knows that, for every child in the audience to watch Big and Small, there’s going to be at least one adult. “And we want them to be engaged, too,” said the man who, with his partner, is taking the Treehouse show on the road, making a stop in Kamloops on Nov. 26 for two shows at the Kamloops Convention Centre. To do that, de Domenico writes the script on two levels, one accessible immediately to children and another that, while it might seem funny to the younger set, will resonate for the adults. For example, he said, there’s a scene where Small says to Big: “You like me. You really like me.” “The adults get it because they know Sally Field said that [when she won an Academy Award], but the kids hear
something else.” Big and Small is the story of two friends — one big, one little — who are different not just in stature. It’s hard to tell what creatures the two of them are, but that doesn’t matter to the target audience, de Domenico said. The humour comes from how the two interact, the adventures they go on, the situations they encounter. “It’s a cute show,” de Domenico said “ and it’s a great first experience for kids in the theatre because the characters are warm and lovable.” De Domenico said his own performing career has helped him and his business partner, Douglas John Cameron, understand how to engage the many age groups that watch the show. “Adults get a thrill watching their kids, but they need to be engaged, too. “A parent doesn’t want to be neglected at the show.” De Domenico got his start
as a kid’s entertainer in a simple way: He started writing songs for the mothers’ group his wife attended with their son, Eric. “That was a great audience and they loved it,” he said. “I could be silly, but I always dealt with positive images. “To be able to do this and make my career out of it has been a gift.” It’s important to him his young audience not be exposed to “stuff that is too heavy.” Sesame Street was a game-changer, de Domenico said, bringing an intelligent approach that not only entertained and educated children, but appealed to adults. Tickets for the show are $35 and include a hot dog, chips and drink. Part of the proceeds will go to the Harbaruk family, whose young daughter is being treated for cancer. Tickets are available at Lizzie Bits Baby Co., 204350 Lansdowne St., and at Aberdeen Mall.

ANS WERE GIVEN EVERYTHING THEY WANTED TO HEAR AND MORE AT 54-40â€™S SHOW IN KAMLOOPS ON FRIDAY, OCT. 14, AT INTERIOR SAVINGS CENTRE. Gone are the days when the Vancouver band â€” which is celebrating 30 years together â€” could attract crowds big enough to sell out large arenas, but its drawing power hasnâ€™t diminished because it doesnâ€™t sound good anymore. Neil Osborneâ€™s distinctive voice is as sharp as ever and the rowdier members of Friday nightâ€™s crowd â€” most of them located close to the stage, a stoneâ€™s throw away from the singer/guitarist â€” were treated to all the hits. Baby Ran, One Gun, One Day in Your Life, Lies to Me, Casual Viewinâ€™, Ocean Pearl . . . 54-40 played them all. The middle-age rockers also played a few tracks from their latest album, Lost in The City, but knew enough not to push the 2011 release on a crowd that was there to hear all the hits.

It may be 30 years later, but Neil Osborneâ€™s voice is as distinctive and strong as it was back when 54-40 started. Marty Hastings/KTW
The band played for about 90 minutes, returning to the stage for a couple of encore songs when ISC faithful wouldnâ€™t let them go. Highlighting the concert were a couple of crowd sing-a-long
moments, when the band turned the microphones toward screaming fans, who did their best to emulate Osborne and his bandmates. It was not anything like the early 1990s, when crazed fans were

pouring onto the stage and jumping off it. Those days are gone. The band is older and so are its fans, but the sound is pretty much the same and everyone seemed to go home happy.

Beattie harvests perfection in Wingﬁeld By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
OU HAVE TO FEEL FOR WALT WING-
FIELD. A high-powered stockbroker, he gives up the six-figure income and stress-filled job for what he hopes will be the peaceful, back-to-the-earth life of
a farmer. He buys the old Fisher farm and immediately starts to meet the neighbours, a cast of characters that would have felt perfectly at home in Green Acres. There’s Ed, the newspaper editor. There’s his closest neighbour, Freddy, and nephews Willie and Dave. There’s Don, who
knows all things farmrelated, and Jimmy, the nervous mechanic who must work with a beer at hand. There’s the wise old farmer everyone calls The Squire. And, they’re all portrayed by Rod Beattie in the production of Letter from Wingfield Farm, now on at the Sagebrush Theatre. To call this a one-

actor play would be wrong. Sure, there is just Beattie on stage, but he becomes each character before we have even noticed. His facial expressions change. His voice changes. The way he stands changes. It is a joy to behold this award-winning actor who has portrayed Wingfield more than 4,000 times — there are seven plays based on the character — move seamlessly through a year in the life of a gentleman farmer who grieves the death of a duck and can’t send his pigs to market. Each scene is set with Beattie reading his most recent letter sent to the town newspaper. It’s based on playwright Dan Needles’ own life, in which he wanted to be a stockbroker, then tried farming and then moved on to become a small-town newspaper editor who wrote a column based on his experiences. A longtime friend of Beattie’s, Needles allowed his columns to become the genesis of the Wingfield franchise. In an interview with KTW, Beattie said Needles’ humour isn’t slapstick or in-yourface, but rather the type one can find from everyday life — the bemused skepticism of the onlooker wondering

what the heck Wingfield thinks he’s doing, the horse team that has a mind of its own when it comes to farming, the visit to the neighbour’s house that ends the next morning with a hangover and a house full of smoke.

Argent golden for Zombies
A sector of ASETS
Some songs just last the test of time — even 50 years later By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER
WASN’T AT ALL INTERESTED IN SEEING THE ZOMBIES WHEN THEIR SHOW WAS ANNOUNCED WEEKS AGO. They were vaguely familiar — some British band that was big when I was a teenager and not allowed to listen to rock music because my parents detested it. My husband, however, was ecstatic — and with good reason. The show they gave on Wednesday, Oct. 12, may end up in my Top 10 ever seen. The opening act was The Strawbs, another band from back in the 1960s. They did a great acoustic set, with lead singer Dave Cousins appearing more like a band conductor, his hands moving along with the music played by bandmates Chas Cronk and Dave Lambert. The only disappointment was they didn’t do their 1973 hit, Part of the Union. The Zombies didn’t disappoint at all. They opened with Sticks and Stones and I Love You and then introduced the crowd in the theatre at

It was with this last song that Rod Argent took complete command of the stage from lead singer Colin Blunstone. It’s no surprise the band made the decision decades ago to have him move from the microphone to a seat behind the keyboards — the man is simply gifted and, unlike Blunstone, eager to engage the audience. Argent moved on to a single he recorded after leaving the Zombies, Hold Your Head Up — and people were on their feet. They ended with a Gershwin classic that was on their first album — and apparently the first song they ever recorded. It was a reverent, thoughtful rendition of Summertime that capitalized on the amazing harmonics of the group. So why is it going to likely end up in the Top 10? One simple reason: 50 years later, these guys are as tight as they ever were, their voices and musicianship have not failed a single quarter-note and their body of work, which I’ve not paid much attention to in years, includes some of the best lyrics ever written. As my husband said, Argent and Blunstone aren’t Lennon and McCartney — but they’re damn close.

FJ Cruiser still makes a bold statement NEIL MOORE First DRIVE
ESIGNING AN AUTOMOBILE IS RISKY BUSINESS. Play it too safe and you’re in danger of being outshone by the competition. Go bold and you may create another Pontiac Aztek or Trans Sport, — or, perhaps, a first-generation Tribeca. Then there are those designs, like the PT Cruiser and New Beetle, that were novel at the time, even headturning when they debuted, but now just looked tired. I don’t believe Toyota’s FJ Cruiser, modelled after the classic FJ40 from the 1960s, has suffered either fate. I liked its Tonka truck styling when it was revealed in 2003 (and then launched in 2007), and still enjoy it today. The FJ continues with the same styling: Beefy tires on 17-inch alloys pushed to the corners, large wheel openings, wide track and 79-inch height with roof racks. Coming or going, the FJ cuts an imposing Hummeresque figure. Fans of the old FJ40 will appreciate the heritage cues, like the white roof and round headlamps that are tied
into the front grille. Wrap-around rear windows are another signature FJ element and, while you’d think they would enhance rear visibility, the huge side pillars they tie into prove otherwise. Thankfully, the FJ comes with big-rig side mirrors that stick out like Dumbo’s ears and help with the massive blind spot. And, like the original FJ, which was a legendary off-roader that still commands a high price, today’s
vehicle is as good a rock crawler as you’re likely to find. There’s loads of ground clearance (245 millimetres or 9.6 inches), along with 34-degree approach and 31-degree departure angles. It can even ford 27.5 inches of water. All the better for extreme terrain and, to protect the FJ’s underbelly, there are protector plates for the engine, fuel tank and transfer case. The powertrain was upgraded last year with
dual variable-valve timing with intelligence (along with other improvements), giving it a 21-horsepower boost over previous models. It is also more fuelefficient. Today’s 4.0-litre V6 delivers 260 horsepower and 271 poundfeet of torque — plenty of grunt to haul its 1,967-kilogram (4,336pound) curb weight up steep inclines — not to mention launching it with authority. This engine is either mated to a five-speed
automatic transmission (with part-time 4WD) or six-speed manual (with full-time 4WD). A double-wishbone in front and solid axle in rear with four-link configuration are fitted with stabilizer bars, gas shocks and coil springs. Bolted to a rigid ladder frame, this longtravel suspension delivers a surprisingly quiet and forgiving ride, yet is sure-footed on the trail. Inside, the FJ wears a look that pays tribute to its off-road ability.
Most noticeable are the body-coloured door inserts and console faceplate that houses big rectangular buttons, along with beefy HVAC knobs that can be operated while wearing winter gloves. My tester, a 2011 model, was equipped with the five-speed automatic ($33,725), and also came with the adventure package ($5,995) that includes a cool dash-mounted accessory meter cluster that features a floating ball-type compass, inclinometer and tem-
perature gauge. The 2012 model is a carryover and the Adventure group has been replaced by the urban package which, for $5,020, provides keyless entry, power mirrors, backup camera, 10-speaker JBL audio system with subwoofer, cruise control, 115-volt power outlet, leather-wrapped steering wheel, rear privacy glass, cargo mat and the previously mentioned multi info display.

Teen drivers — read this ﬁrst Results from consumer research conducted by Be Car Care Aware clearly shows today’s youth are neglecting their vehicles, posing a safety threat to not only themselves, but others on the road. Today’s driving youth (18 to 24 years) are less likely than more experienced drivers to change their oil regularly and one-in-five have no idea when to change their oil. Only 45 per cent of youth bring their vehicle in for maintenance at least once a year compared to 76 per cent of people over 50. Ten per cent of young drivers reported they never put air in their tires and nine per cent admitted they do not know how to determine the correct tire pressure. These results identify an urgent need for parents to educate young drivers in their house about the need for regular vehicle maintenance. If you don’t know much about automotive maintenance and repair, do yourself a favour and learn it along with your kids. Here are a few tips: • Explain that all cars, new and old, need regular attention. Make sure your teenager knows and follows the maintenance schedule for his/her car. Preventive maintenance increases safety and saves money. • Remember the owner’s manual. This automotive bible is full of information about your car. • Take them to the repair facility, the tire store, the body shop and wherever you have automotive work performed. Get them accustomed to the automotive world — its people, places, jargon and prices. • Make a plan. What happens if the car breaks down, he/she has an accident or the car gets stolen? What if no adults are home to receive the panic call? For many parents, driving age is the final frontier. Certainly, it is an important rite of passage for teenagers. Don’t let your child pass into this stage of his/her life without being prepared. Take the time and the necessary materials to make your young driver feel competent and secure.

Cruiser a practical people-hauler X From B9
Last year’s roof rack and Bilstein shocks have been dropped, but backup sensors added, which are nice when you’re doing most of your time in the urban jungle. Besides, if you want the rack and Bilsteins, there’s an off-road package that includes this equipment and more. All FJ Cruisers get water-repellent seat fabrics with a rubber floor and all-weather floor mats a sensible combination whether you’re transporting a couple of mud-covered mountain bikers or your ice creamcovered kids. Front seats offer plenty of butt and shoulder room and the seatbacks have been carved out to enhance
knee room in the rear, which is tight for lanky passengers. There’s also decent head room, but the upright windshield provides a relatively narrow band of glass, making it difficult to spot traffic signals from up close. The cargo floor is made of a tough, moulded plastic, as are the backs of the rear 60/40-split folding seats, giving you an easy-to-clean and damage-resistant surface for mucky boots and cargo. Door panels are also a rugged plastic. Just about everything below the window line is a dark colour to help hide the dirt you haven’t yet wiped or hosed off. Overall, the cabin appears utilitarian but not unattractive.
I’d call it contractor chic. And, despite the vehicle’s robust demeanour, it is a comfortable environment for both driver and passengers. The interior is also relatively free from road noise, squeaks and rattles. Even wind noise is minimal, which is unexpected due to the FJ’s boxy styling. Sure, there’s a fair bit of exhaust noise, but that adds to its offroad cred. Save the silky exhaust note for crossovers and cityslicker SUVs. New for 2012, the base six-speed manual model has returned. From $32,725, you get a good, basic bush-basher that includes a full-time 4WD with centre differential lock, rear

differential lock and two-speed transfer case, along with vehicle-stability control (VSC) and active -traction control (ATRAC). The automatic gets an automatic disconnecting differential and two-speed transfer case. VSC and ATRAC, along with rear diff lock are also standard. The FJ has one oddity — the rear suicide doors— but these open nearly 90 degrees to give good access to the relatively tight quarters in back. The rear two-part hatch (with flip-up glass) makes it easy to load and unload small or long objects. Of course, comparisons will naturally be drawn between the FJ and the highly capable Jeep Wrangler.
Body style: Mid-size 4x4 Sport Utility. Drive method: Front-engine, four-wheel-drive. Engine: 24-valve, DOHC 4.0-litre V6 (260 hp and 271 lb/ft of torque). Fuel economy: Automatic - 12.4/9.5/11.1 L/100 km (city/hwy/comb); Manual - 14.0/10.4/12.4 L/100 km (city/hwy/comb). Towing capacity: 2,268 kg (5,000 lbs). Cargo: Behind front seats, 1,890 litres (66.8 cu. ft.); behind rear seat, 790 litres (27.9 cu. ft.). Price: Base manual $32,725; base automatic $33,725; manual with offroad package $37,395; automatic with offroad package $38,395; automatic with urban package $38,745. Website: toyota.ca.
The fourdoor model (the Unlimited), does begin at a lower MSRP, but I will confess everyday road manners give the FJ an advantage — at least over the 2011 Wrangler. I’ll reserve further judgment until I’ve road tested the 2012. And, like the Wrangler, the FJ Cruiser does rise boldly in a sea of bland sport utilities — perhaps even more so, as there are fewer on the road. It may not be the most cushy vehicle in this segment, but the FJ Cruiser is definitely a standout and is surprisingly practical for a purpose-built off roader.

EXPERIENCE LIFE ACROSS ALL TERRAIN
Mercedes app issues Mazda CX-5 introduces ultra-strong high steel drive challenge Mercedes-Benz Canada has released an interactive, locationbased gaming app — Drive & Seek. A Canadian first, Drive & Seek was released with the launch of the new 2012 C-Class Coupe. The intent is to create an engaging and interactive brand experience that will connect with a more youthful audience and offer players the opportunity to win the grand prize of a 2012 C-Class Coupe. The espionagethemed app builds off a larger campaign and interactive movie, challenging players to hunt for virtual briefcases dropped at various GPS locations. Using their smartphone and the game app, players must find 10 briefcases a week for four weeks through radar that pinpoints their location and the secret location of the next briefcase. The app features a compass and distance metre guiding players. If they need help, players can use location tips to receive hints about the briefcase’s
location, or engage Facebook friends to help them track down the briefcase. Once players are close to the briefcase location, the app will switch to sonar, telling them through sound how far they are away. When players find a briefcase, they can collect it and unlock it to reveal information about the MercedesBenz C-Class Coupe. In addition, every 10th briefcase will unlock an augmented reality experience, where participants can interact with a 3D model of the car for an in-depth look at the myriad technological advancements and luxurious features of the refined and sporty new C-Class Coupe. By locating as many briefcases as possible within their radius, the top 125 game players will receive additional contest entries to win a grand prize of a 2012 C-Class Coupe or one of four secondary prizes. The winner of the C-Class Coupe will be announced in November.
Mazda has become the first car manufacturer to successfully develop vehicle components using 1,800 MPa ultra-high tensile steel. This super-strength steel will debut in the all-new Mazda CX-5 compact crossover SUV that will go on sale in 2012. Mazda’s new production technology uses 1,800 MPa ultra-high tensile steel to fabricate bumper beams, which fit inside the front and rear bum-
pers and minimize damage in the event of a collision. The bumper bars are 20 per cent stronger and 4.8 kilograms lighter than previous
versions and are a key part of Mazda’s next-generation, lightweight and highly rigid vehicle architecture. The new body-architec-
ture was developed as part of Mazda’s breakthrough SKYACTIV technology program and the CX-5’s bodyshell incorporates a new energy absorbing structure as well as expanded use of high-tensile steel to reduce weight. The use of high tensile steel enables vehicle parts to be thinner yet still retain the same degree of strength as previous, thicker components. This leads to significant savings in vehicle weight.

Mervyn Mostyn Williams 1941 - 2011
Mervyn Mostyn Williams of Kamloops passed away in Hospice at North Vancouver on July 26, 2011 at the age of 69. Merv was born July 29, 1941 in Manitoba. Merv met his cancer challenge with courage and strength. He is lovingly remembered and sadly missed by sons James (Roxanne) of Williams Lake and Robert (Lorna) of North Vancouver; estranged wife Lois Copping of Williams Lake; his four delightful grandchildren Jessica, Lee, Tate and Kael; sisters Frankie and Karen; brothers Ted and Michael. Merv had many friends and acquaintances in his lifetime and in various circles in Kamloops, Williams Lake and the surrounding areas. He especially enjoyed people, horses, bowling and his chosen career which was in car sales and mobile home sales. Family and friends got together in North Vancouver on July 29th which would have been Merv’s 70th birthday and so became both a birthday event and a celebration of his life. Lorna prepared a memory book of pictures for Merv’s birthday gift and presented each grandchild with a specialized copy. She also prepared a wonderful DVD. Music was played and sang by the talented in the family, the food and cake were awesome and the balloon release will be forever remembered.

Rise Up Slowly . . . Rise up slowly, Angel. Do not leave me here, alone, Where the warmth of mortal essence Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.
Wrap me in a downy cape Of sunshine, warm with love, And kiss a tear-stained mother’s face With moonlight from above.
Rise up slowly, Angel. I cannot let you go. Just drift softly ‘midst the faces, In sorrow now bent low.
Speak to me in breezes, Whispered through the drying leaves, And caress my brow with raindrops Filtered by the sheltering trees.
Then, wait for me at sunset, Beside the lily pond, And guide me safely homeward To your world, which lies beyond.
Ease the searing anger, ..... Born in harsh, unyielding truth That Death could steal my loved one From the glowing blush of youth.
Rise up slowly, Angel, For I cannot hear the song Which calls you through the shadows Into the light beyond.
Just spread your arms to take me In reunion’s sweet embrace, And we shall soar, together, To a different time and place.
Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the softly falling snow. I am the gentle showers of rain, I am the ﬁelds of ripening grain. I am in the morning hush, I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling ﬂight. I am the start-shine of the night. I am in the ﬂowers that bloom, I am in a quiet room. I am in the birds that sing, I am in each lovely thing. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there – I did not die.
