From panning plan to loving Family Day By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

Michael Sutherland watches daughter Makena (right) follow in mom Karyn’s footsteps, as the 13-year-old is about to make her on-ice vocal debut, singing the national anthems at tomorrow night’s (Friday, Oct. 7) Kamloops Blazers-Spokane Chiefs game at Interior Savings Centre. Michael was marketing director with the Victoria Cougars when he first met Karyn as she rehearsed her anthem singing in the B.C. capital. Dave Eagles/KTW

NOTE • WORTHY VOCAL GENES By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

ichael Sutherland can be excused if he’s watching the audience closely when the Kamloops Blazers host the Spokane Chiefs tomorrow night (Oct. 7) — because you just never know when history might repeat itself. After all, Sutherland, a lawyer in Kamloops, met his wife when she was standing on the ice of the old Victoria Memorial Arena, auditioning to sing the anthem — and his

daughter will be on the ice tomorrow at Interior Savings Centre, following in mom’s musical footsteps. Of course, the situation is a tad different: When Michael met Karyn, he was handling marketing and PR for the Victoria Cougars, tasked with hiring anthem singers. Karyn, already a winner of the talent competition of the Miss Canada pageant in 1990, had been singing the anthem for the Cougars for four years. However, she had to audition because of a change in team ownership. When Makena takes the mic tomorrow, she’ll be just a

few weeks into her 13th year and making her debut at the rink. As you might expect, Michael remembers Karyn’s 1994 audition well. “I had to take her to the rink. The Billy Graham Crusade was setting up around us and there was a lot of noise. “I handed her the mic and said, ‘OK, let’s hear it’ and she started singing — and the whole place went quiet.” Karyn doesn’t quite recall it that way. “I don’t remember a lot of noise,” she said. “I don’t remember that moment like he does.

“I do remember him staring at me.” From that moment, a relationship developed that led to marriage, some career changes for Michael — he gave up hockey to study law, coming to Kamloops and the Mair Jensen Blair firm in 1998 — and three children, Makena and younger brothers Connor, 8, and Carson, 5. Makena, a student at South Kamloops secondary, said she saw an ad looking for singers and thought it would be cool to perform the anthem, “because my mom was an anthem singer.” XSee MAKENA A11

They warned about the potential harm it would bring to the economy, but Kamloops’ two Liberal MLAs now approve of a plan to add a late winter statutory holiday. As a leadership hopeful for the B.C. Liberal Party at the beginning of the year, Christy Clark promised to introduce a Family Day holiday during February. Nine months later, the proposed holiday became a reality as part of the premier’s Oct. 3 throne speech. At the time of the leadership contest, Kamloops-South Thompson MLA Kevin Krueger told KTW he was opposed to the idea. He said he had looked into a February holiday to celebrate the Olympics, but said his research showed it would come at a “horrendous” cost to the government and private sector. Krueger noted during a statutory holiday, collective agreements kick in for all kinds of 24-hour government services, from police officers to hospital staff, who get paid double or triple time. “It’s a big-ticket item,” Krueger said at the time, arguing it would

take money away from other programs, such as arts grants and children’s and sports programs. He also added he wished Clark had spoken with some Liberal MLAs before floating the idea. Today, Krueger is defending Clark’s creation, calling the holiday “something that is affordable” and in keeping with Clark’s family-first agenda. “She made promises as a person seeking the [Liberal party] leadership. She won the leadership, so she’s keeping her promises,” he said. “I certainly don’t fault her for that.” Krueger still believes the stat will be costly, but he praised the premier’s decision to wait to implement the holiday until 2013. He suggested the delay is in recognition of the tough economic time facing the province and the financial hit from losing the harmonized sales tax. Kamloops-North Thompson MLA Terry Lake was also cool to the idea earlier this year, but has since warmed up to Family Day. He said there is always a balance between the interest of business and families, and he predicted the holiday will be popular with the latter.

City council candidate Donovan Cavers has a mobile message as he uses transit buses to campaign. The cost of such advertising, and the source of the funding, was questioned this week by Radio NL’s Jim Harrison in an on-air editorial, prompting Cavers to hold an information session today (Oct. 6) at 1 p.m. at the transit maintenance yard, 1550 Ord Rd. “Goading questions are being asked (namely by Jim Harrison) and I just want to clarify why I chose to place my signage on transit buses, what the costs associated with bus ads were and whom it was that funded the ads,” Cavers said.

And they’re off — nomination papers are filed By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The race is on to elect the next Kamloops city council, as a handful of potential candidates have filed their nomination papers. As of Oct. 5, five candidates have officially filed, including councillors Nancy Bepple

and John De Cicco and challengers Ken Christian, Nelly Dever and Dennis Paget. The period for candidates to file their papers at city hall began on Oct. 4, giving candidates until Oct. 14 to return their nomination forms and officially join the race. The list is expected to grow, as 10 candi-

Nov. 19 election. Arjun Singh, Ray Nyuli, Bryce Eberle, Andy Philpot, Donovan Cavers, Peter Sharp,

and Dever have announced their intention to challenge the incumbents. Among the incum-

bents joining Bepple and De Cicco seeking re-election are Tina Lange, Marg Spina and Pat Wallace. Last year, a flurry of candidates filed in the last few days of the nomination period. A total of 26 candidates ran in the 2008 civic election, including sitting councillors. Mayor Peter Milobar

has yet to file his papers, but said he intends to do so before the deadline. Regardless whether he is acclaimed as mayor, Milobar plans to unveil his election platform by mid-October. “I think the voters need to see something in a reasonable timeframe,” Milobar said. Links to the list of

official candidates, their contact information and polling stations can be found on the home page of the city’s website at kamloops.ca. • A mayoral hopeful, Travis Nolt, had filed papers on Tuesday, but reconsidered and withdrew his nomination package from city hall late yesterday afternoon.

Kamloops-Thompson board of education will have at least one new trustee around the board table. “We’ve had a history of competent governance, especially with some of the issues we’ve had to deal with over the last number of years,” he said. “Unlike municipal governments, we can’t tack a couple points on the tax rate if we want to raise money. We need to deal with the funding we have. I think we’ve been fortunate to have some very competent people.” Trustees Joan Cowden, Diane Dosch, Denise Harper, John Harwood, Annette Glover, Kathleen Karpuk, Joanne Stokes and Gerald

There will be at least one new face on the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s board of education come November — but there could be as many as eight returning trustees. Of the nine trustees on the SD73’s board, all but one — board chairman Ken Christian, who has announced he’ll be seeking a spot on Kamloops city council — are running again. SD73 superintendent Terry Sullivan said he would be happy to see plenty of familiar faces

Finance rates starting from

Watson have all indicated they will be seeking re-election. Dosch, who had been the trustee for the area of Logan Lake and Savona, will now be running for a spot representing Kamloops. Stokes represents Barriere, Harwood represents Clearwater and Harper represents Chase, Sun Peaks and the T’Kemlups Indian Band reserve. Sullivan said Christian’s departure will definitely be felt on SD73’s board. “He’s a major loss,” Sullivan said of the 18-year trustee.

Topping Trees is a ‘Growing Problem’ STOP TOPPING TREES

RESULTS OF TOPPING

The tree retaliates by producing an unruly crop of weakly-attached watersprouts, prone to disease and breakage. Disease enters via the stub ends, making the tree a short-lived and potentially dangerous one. The tree ends up looking even bulkier than before; it soon needs re-pruning.

1. Remove dead, damaged, or diseased branches. 2. Remove suckers and watersprouts. 3. Remove badly placed branches: t$SPTTJOHPSSVCCJOHFBDI other t(SPXJOHJOUPDFOUSFPGUSFF t(SPXJOHJOUPXBMLXBZT SPBEXBZT  or buildings 4. If desired, trim slender branch tips a few inches, to a bud or a parent branch.

Stub ends are a sign of poor pruning. This kind of pruning destroys the health & beauty of the tree.

Prune It Right! Four easy steps:

Prune It Right! Here’s how: Make mostly thinning cuts (removal of branches right back to the parent branch or trunk). Avoid creating stub ends. Make your cuts just outside the branch collar (a slight thickening where the branch joins its parent branch or trunk). Flush cuts destroy the tree’s defense zone. Remember: remove no more than 20% of the green.

Now stand back and admire the great pruning job. Your tree will look airy and graceful, and your pruning job will stay done much longer than stub-end pruning. Trees add beauty and value to your home. Protect your investment with proper pruning. Attend our workshop: Pruning Fruit Trees, Ornamental Trees & Shrubs - #178664 on October 19, 2011. To register call 250-828-3500.

STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The former head of a grassroots community organization has added his name to the growing list of candidates looking for a seat at city hall. Chris Ortner, the former president of the Venture Kamloops board and erstwhile president of the Kamloops Voters Society, unveiled his election platform outside city hall on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Ortner said he intends to promote a balanced approach that includes taking into account community issues, business interests and the collective interest of future development in Kamloops. He wants the city to be an education and regional health-care centre and has plans to develop a “green” initiative to get residents to shop local within their neighbourhoods. If elected, Ortner said he would establish a seniors’ council to identify future needs of the aging population. He also wants residents to feel involved in decision-making by council and more comfortable approaching city hall. “Just a bit of a culture change in how we do business I think is appropriate,” he said. Ortner weighed in on two issues likely to dominate the upcoming election campaign — the planned Lorne Street parkade and the proposed Ajax mine south of Aberdeen. He wouldn’t say whether he supports the parkade, but said the new council should look at the entire parking issue in the city and restart the debate with more community involvement. As for the Ajax mine, Ortner said the process is still in its early stages, but he praised work by city staff to seek answers to questions regarding the project. He said he would like to see the mining company provide answers to the city in a public-forum setting. Ortner, who owns his own economic development and mediation firm, helped organize the Kamloops Voters Society earlier this year in response to what the group felt was a lack of consultation and transparency by city council on key issues, such as the parkade. He stepped down as society president to run for council. Nine candidates — Arjun Singh, Ray Nyuli, Nelly Dever, Bryce Eberle, Andy Philpot, Donovan Cavers, Peter Sharp Brenda Prevost and Dennis Paget — have announced their intention to challenge the incumbents. Among the incumbents seeking re-election are John De Cicco, Tina Lange, Marg Spina, Nancy Bepple and Pat Wallace. Nomination papers are available at city hall and can be returned until Oct. 14. The election for city council, school board and regional district seats will be held on Saturday, Nov. 19.

TRU joins prestigious provincial research council tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

If it wasn’t before, Thompson Rivers University can now count itself as part of the big leagues when it comes to postsecondary institutions in B.C. TRU has been accepted into the Research Universities’ Council of B.C. (RUCBC) — a group composed of the University of B.C., Simon Fraser University, the University of Victoria and the University of Northern B.C. “Today, Kamloops truly became a university town,� said Christopher Seguin, TRU’s vice-president of advancement, at the Tuesday, Oct. 4, announcement. Royal Roads University in Victoria

was also admitted into the council on Tuesday. TRU president Alan Shaver said the university’s inclusion on the list of the province’s largest and most prestigious post-secondary institutions marks an important milestone. “It means that we’re part of that network and it opens the doors to a lot more collaboration,� he said. “It’s going to contribute to the advancement of our research.� TRU’s standing on the RUCBC will likely mean easier access to research dollars and, therefore, more money for research, but Shaver wouldn’t speculate on a possible amount. He said it will also attract better faculty and increase TRU’s profile as a university. But, what about the impact on students? “I think the students

will probably find better connections,� Shaver said. “I suspect this will get them into a bigger league, so to speak.� Shaver said inclusion in the RUCBC also brings with it much more potential for existing and future graduateschool options. “Obviously, it will encourage graduate students to come to us,� he said. “But, it will also open doors for them to collaborate with researchers at other universities.� TRU prides itself on its small class sizes and intimate education atmosphere, and Seguin said that won’t change just because the university is now on a list alongside UBC, UVic and SFU. “Being a part of this lets us be perceived differently,� he said.

Ottawa to be invited into Ajax debate

Having Trouble with your

PATIO DOOR?

City council will ask for a federal review panel to look at mining project By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com.

The proposed Ajax mine, to be located on the edge of the city’s boundaries, could be the focus of a new set of eyes. In a close vote, city council this week passed a resolution to ask federal Environment Minister Peter Kent to set up an independent jointpanel review for the project. It is still up to Kent to approve a review. Members of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association (KAPA), a group opposed to the proposed mine, once again asked council to ask Ottawa to appoint an independent joint-panel review for the project. In August, council denied a similar request, deciding to stay the course with the comprehensivestudy process underway as part of the environmental-review process for the project. Councillors Tina Lange, Marg Spina, Denis Walsh and Jim Harker voted in favour of the motion, while

“If we’re going to be living with such a project, it needs to be reviewed by the best possible methods.” — Ruth Madsen Pat Wallace, John De Cicco and Mayor Peter Milobar voted against the request. Coun. Nancy Bepple excused herself from the debate due to a potential conflict of interest as she owns shares in a mining company. A panel review is one of two routes to take for the environmental-review process for a project like the Ajax mine. The mine is undergoing a comprehensive study that includes a working group. Ruth Madsen, speaking for KAPA, said the comprehensive study is not the best method to review the project and argued it could be harder for a panel-review request

to be granted the longer the city waits to ask. “If we’re going to be living with such a project, it needs to be reviewed by the best possible methods,” she said. The majority of council ignored the advice from the city’s sustainability and environmental-services manager, Jen Fretz, who recommended the city continue with the study for now. Lange said she wants the best for the city, arguing having both a review and working group is a sign council is doing everything possible to represent Kamloops through the process. Walsh expressed concern the city could

lose the chance to ask for a review if it continues to wait. “I think the time is now and I’m willing to live with whatever the result of the review would be,” he said. However, Wallace said she was concerned asking for a panel review would prompt the province to walk away from the comprehensive study process. She wanted clarification from the province before voting in favour of a panel review. Echoing fears the province might walk from the study group, Milobar suggested without assurances from the working group, it could be more difficult for the city to access information and provide a comment on the project. Typically, the comprehensive study has the proponent — in this case KGHM Ajax and Abacus Mining Corp. — put together the vast majority of the information on the project, guided by regulations from the provincial and federal

assessment agencies. The study includes a working group, in which the city is taking part, that convenes prior to the information being released to the public. Members of the working group, such as the city, have the ability to comment on the information. The working group also gives the city an opportunity to ask the experts in the provincial and federal government specific technical questions related to the project and mining in general. A review panel is different in that it is a quasi-judicial system made up of three to five independent experts. The panel is appointed by both senior levels of government, with no municipal representation. The federal environment minister can call for a panel review at any time during the assessment process if there is great public concern or the likelihood of significant environmental impact on a specific project.

Following council’s resolution, Fretz said she was pleased with the decision, adding the request likely does no harm to the pro-

CRITICAL ILLNESS INSURANCE “It always happens to someone else, right?” Wrong, a critical illness can strike anyone at any time. If this was to happen to you, how would you deal with it? • Would your life change if you were to suffer a critical illness such as a heart attack, stroke or life-threatening cancer? • Where would the money come from to cover additional and unexpected expenses that may be associated with medical treatment, time off work and recovery? • 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 financial needs. Meanwhile, you can focus on what’s really important - your recovery. Plus, if you don’t use your coverage, you could get your money back.

Running for city council? Open your ears to one and all

M

AYBE IT’S JUST ME but isn’t this let’s-talk tempest the folks behind the proposed Ajax mine have created just a bit too over the top? I was at the meeting when Donovan Cavers, a candidate for city council, told the members of the Kamloops Voters Society he had been approached by the mine company for a private session to answer any questions he might have. Cavers was backing up a presentation the society was receiving from Don Barz of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association about the mine. Within 24 hours, this “secretive” move by the mine company was making headlines and the company eventually rescinded the invitations. Seems to me there was nothing “secretive” about this at all. Candidates who were contacted weren’t sworn to keep their mouths shut. Nobody was there at the voters society meeting to stop Cavers from letting others know of the invitation. Nobody called Nancy Bepple and told her to stop letting reporters interview her about how she handled the request. I’m betting nobody would even try to tell Pat Wallace not to speak out on her response to the invitation — or anything else, for that matter. Maybe KGHM hasn’t been out talking to the public as much as people want, but it has held an open house and, more tellingly, the voters society learned the president of

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL the company owned by KGHM, and which is leading the drive for the mine, has agreed to attend and speak at any public forum the society might hold. And, yes, maybe they were going to try to influence potential councillors. But, if they were, that was a dumb idea. I’d like to think they aren’t so arrogant as to assume their project is a done deal for the city. Just to be clear, I’m a big fan of municipal government. Sure, the other two levels get the bigger bucks and the higher profiles, but it’s local government that has the most immediate impact on our everyday lives, with each decision that it makes. I think anyone running for council should take advantage of any opportunity to learn about the issues that matter to voters. So, what’s the difference between listening to a pitch by the mine company or having a coffee with someone who is vehemently against the project? Unless one of the two on the other

side of the tables is holding a gun, there is nothing forcing any candidate to change his or her mind. There’s no evil conspiracy at work here. Invitations were offered, it looks like most of them were refused and life goes on. When you stop being just a voter and become someone for whom the rest of might vote, the rules change. You need to educate yourself. You can’t assume you have all the facts — because you never really will. I want every one of those brave folks who are putting their names on the ballot to talk to as many people as possible about every issue we face. If they want, they can call me and we can talk about smart meters, the parkade, transit in the city or any other hot button. I’ve got some strong views on each of them and plenty more. I liked it when Denis Walsh went into neighbourhoods when he first ran for council, holding town-hall type meetings with groups to find out issues that mattered to them. Sure, there would be citywide ones, but there are always those nagging neighbourhood problems that too often our politicians don’t hear about until one neighbour gets mad at another neighbour and they both head off to the public portion of council meetings. So, let’s stop looking for conspiracies and focus on the job at hand. For all of you candidates, that means educating yourself on the issues — and yes, that means listening to every side.

We said it in January and we will say it again — toss the turkey and add the family. There are nine statutory holidays in British Columbia, only three of which occur during the first six months of the year. It is a bleak fact the coldest, darkest and, for many, loneliest months of the year are afforded the fewest holidays. This is why Premier Christy Clark is banking on her Family Day holiday brightening minds — and, perhaps, her chances at winning re-election in 2013. Clark has followed Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Prince Edward Island in adding a statutory holiday in late February. It would be a welcome break in the vast monotony of winter that stretches from New Year’s Day (Jan. 1 ) to Good Friday. That’s almost four months without a non-weekend break. Yet, British Columbians enjoy a holiday per month from Canada Day (July 1) to Christmas (Dec. 25). Packing days off in the months of good weather makes sense (Victoria Day in May, Canada Day in July, B.C. Day in August and Labour Day in September). But, is there really a need for three more statutory holidays in the colder months that follow, at the expense of the annual expanse of blah that follows New Year’s Day? Clark’s decision has businesses concerned about the costs incurred in increased wages, lost revenue and decreased production. They are fair concerns, which is why Alberta did not increase the number of stat holidays when in 1990 it introduced Family Day on the third Monday of each February. To address business concerns, Alberta eliminated the Heritage Day stat holiday in August when creating Family Day. B.C. can do the same — adding a much-needed holiday in February to help bridge this most barren of seasons, while scratching a stat from the holiday-rich back end of the calendar. We suggest Victoria hold onto the summer vacation days as Lotuslanders love their lakes and cabins. Instead, Thanksgiving can be sacrificed, as is done with turkeys each year. This year, Labour Day falls just 35 days before Thanksgiving and Remembrance Day arrives only 32 days after Thanksgiving. Surely, workers in B.C. would choose a February break over an October reprieve.

KTW knows diversity

convince even himself? Editor: Re: Bill Ligertwood’s Rational Thoughts column of Sept. 27 (‘Doing fine without God’): Ligertwood’s columns also provide content that is “perversely entertaining.” Furthermore, I find his columns to be puzzling. What was the event and/or circumstance that triggered such opposition to the concept of God? Whatever the event and/or circumstance, it must have been traumatic as the criticism of faith in God is pursued with evangelical passion. One wonders if Ligertwood is perhaps trying to convince himself. What about the possibility of doing finer work with God? Remember the Spy vs. Spy feature in Mad Magazine? Here we have a faith vs. faith issue — faith in God vs. faith in reason. And, an Old Testament writer records God claiming, “My thoughts are higher than your thoughts.” The Bible is a theological book. The theology presented is there is an eternal existence beyond the gave. No one needs to fear death because God has a solution and a place. For those who are “doing fine without God,” there is also a place, which the Bible describes as a place of torment — and not the place one would want to go. The choice of destination is made on this side of the grave, which does allow opportunity for change. Ray Jones Kamloops

Seven-year-old Nevaeh Roy with her beloved dirt bike, which was stolen on Oct. 2 from the side of Upper Heffley Louis Creek Road.

Stolen bike, broken heart Editor: On the afternoon of Sunday, Oct. 2, I joined my daughters on a beautiful, sunny, autumn Sunday dirt-bike ride. We were travelling on Upper Heffley Louis Creek Road, close to our home in Whitecroft Village, just below Sun Peaks Resort. Unfortunately, my seven-year-old daughter’s dirt bike broke down. We got the bike going three times before it became apparent it was not going to make it home. I made the decision to leave it behind a bush on the side of the road, double up on my dirt bike and head for home to get our truck and pick up the bike. Being that the road we were on is very rural, not heavily travelled and only five minutes from home, I did not think it was necessary to take the dirt bike off

into the thick brush and hide it. Unfortunately, when we returned within 10 minutes, her dirt bike was gone. This bike was the only thing she asked for on her seventh birthday in June. She happily sacrificed an expensive birthday party and any additional gifts in hopes of receiving this one and only gift. We are not a family made of money, so her father, myself and both sets of her grandparents pitched in to finally make it happen for her. The devastation she went through once we realized her bike had been stolen is something a child should never have to go through. Yes, we are blessed that it is a material item and our family is in good health with a roof over our heads. However, try explain-

ing that to a seven-yearold girl who just lost her prized possession. My hopes in writing this letter is to convince the thief to take a look at the situation. The police don’t need to be involved. Please, just leave it anywhere in Whitecroft Village and it will get home to console my daughter’s broken heart. The bike is a 1997 black and white Yamaha PW 50-cc auto. It was stolen between the 3.5-kilometres and four-kilometre mark on Upper Heffley Louis Creek Road on Oct. 2 between 4:50 p.m. and 5 p.m. It was taken on Sunday October 2nd between 4:50pm-5pm.

Editor: Kudos and congratulations for changing the heading and artwork on the worship service advertising page to make it generic and open to all. The KTW staff is obviously well aware of the growing diversity of the Kamloops population and now reflects it in the heading for the space for advertising of worship services. I’m sure all those who enjoy worshiping in mosques, temples, synangogues, meeting halls and homes will enjoy being able to find the information about their services there, along with those who worship in churches.

Park has a lot of friends

Look Good - Feel Good!

Group trying to stop parkade bests its second goal

Have a Safe and Happy Thanksgiving Weekend

By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

In less than a week, the group behind a counter-petition to stop the Lorne Street parkade project will be handing its papers over to city hall. Friends of Riverside Park is hoping to turn in a petition with the signatures of 8,500 Kamloops residents. As of Tuesday, Oct. 4, the group had reached 7,896 names on the counter-petition as part of the city’s alternate-approval process. The total does not include petitions collected at city hall. In the second-to-lastweek of the campaign, the group managed to get 1,600 signatures. “We’re feeling good,” said Bob Gamble of Friends of Riverside Park. “The support of the community — not just downtown, but across the whole community — it’s been just great.” On Aug. 30, council gave final approval to a bylaw to borrow $8 million to build the parkade, triggering the alternative-approval process.

The city plans to build a parkade to replace this lot at Riverside Park.

Opponents have until Oct. 11 to gather 10 per cent of the electorate’s signatures (6,533), forcing council to drop the project or send it to referendum. The group is trying to get 8,500 signatures to create a buffer in case some counterpetition signatures are not valid. The group has been aggressively targeting events like farmers’ markets, but Gamble noted the bulk of the new signatures has been gathered by volunteers going door-to-door. If the petition is successful, he said his group would like council to walk away from the project and revisit the parking issue. “There’s no question in a lot of people’s mind we need another

parkade, but not in Riverside Park,” Gamble said, arguing council doesn’t need to spend money on a referendum.

If the counterpetition is successful — and if council decides to go to referendum — the cost would be approximately $90,000. A referendum cannot be held in conjunction with the Nov. 19 civic election as the Aug. 31 deadline to add such measures to the ballot has passed. In May, city council decided to proceed with a two-level, 350stall parkade in the Lorne Street parking lot adjacent to Riverside Park.

U . O . Makena could become Blazers’‘lucky star’ SSTUDY.WORK. XFrom A1

Once she floated the idea of trying out for the gig, Makena was encouraged by her mom and her vocal teacher, Jesse Jones. Now, with her debut a day away, Makena is more excited than nervous about her pending performance. Makena is used to the spotlight, though. Besides her singing lessons, she is also learning to play the French horn, has studied piano

and dance and is determined to become a successful competitive swimmer. Her specialty is the backstroke. Karyn said swimming has perhaps been the biggest influence on her daughter’s selfconfidence “because that’s quite a dream for her.” The family finds time for hockey, though, with season’s tickets to Blazers’ games and Makena’s favourite team the Vancouver Canucks and her favourite players Sidney Crosby

and Jarome Iginla. She’s not sure if she’ll be getting any other opportunities to perform the anthems — although she has learned the Star Spangled Banner in addition to O Canada in case she has more chances to sing when U.S. Division squads visit Kamloops. Karyn said the team has not let her daughter know about possible repeat performances. “I guess it depends on if the Blazers win. She could be their lucky star.”

Meter hogs face tougher fines By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

Parking-meter cheaters hoping to skirt the rules around staying too long in a spot could soon be faced with tougher city bylaws. City council has authorized staff to amend its traffic bylaw to stop vehicles from parking in the same metered space in a time-restricted area for a period of time after having previously parked at that location. The change would mean vehicles would have to wait at least two hours before parking in a previously held spot. The bylaws department has encountered situations where people parking downtown at metered spaces are repeat metering and avoiding tickets while remaining in the park-

CITY HALL ing space beyond the maximum time. In some cases, the drivers are moving the vehicle slightly forward or back, creating doubt whether the vehicle had actually left the stall. The intent of the bylaw is to free up parking spaces to keep a constant turnover of spaces downtown. “The fundamental premise of the meters in the downtown core wasn’t to generate revenue. It’s to create turnover of spaces,” said Len Hrycan, director of community and corporate affairs. The fine for repeat metering is $50, with no discount for paying early.

• The city has also decided to give a restaurant in North Kamloops another chance. Council has agreed to give the owners of the North Shore Subway restaurant a second public hearing for a proposed drivethru. Council earlier rejected an application to allow a drive-thru at the Subway, located at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Fortune Drive. The city doesn’t allow drive-thrus in what is considered the North Shore Town Centre, instead encouraging a pedestrianfriendly environment. Had the original request been approved, the North Kamloops Subway would have been the first in Kamloops to feature a drive-thru.

Rivers growth delayed Nighclub’s expansion bid to wait until Halloween By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It will be a few more weeks before the owners of a downtown nightclub learn the fate of an application to increase its capacity. City council has decided to delay a decision on an application by Rivers Night Club to expand occupancy, likely until after the Halloween weekend. The bar’s owners and city staff are expected to meet and discuss a time when the application could go back to council. Both sides appear to want to wait until after Halloween, when the club will have a temporary permit to increase capacity. On Tuesday, Oct. 4, council again delayed

debate on the issue in order to get more information from the RCMP and the proponent on the application. The Lansdowne Street bar’s owner is seeking to nearly double the size of the venue to accommodate 380 patrons, up from its current capacity of 210. The club also wanted to lengthen its hours of operation on Sundays — to 2 a.m. from midnight, but has dropped that idea from its plan. Club owner Angela Jackson is hoping more time and information will help the controversial application to expand the business. She said it’s her job to show council and police management skills at the bar are in compliance and capable of handling larger crowds.

A decision on the expansion application was first tabled on Sept. 19, with RCMP opposed to it. A letter from RCMP Insp. Jennie Latham noted the club is considered the biggest drain on police resources compared to other establishments in the downtown. The club’s licence was also suspended by the Liquor Control and Licensing Branch in August for seven days due to liquor infractions. The licence suspension occurred after an undercover operation in March. Speaking on behalf of Kamloops RCMP, Staff Sgt. Mike Savage told council the operators need to show they can deal with the current clientele, noting the

bar generates a disproportionate number of calls compared to other clubs.

Foul play ruled out in Loewen death tim@kamloopsthissweek.com

The B.C. Coroners Service says thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no evidence of foul play in the mysterious death of a Kamloops man in August, but his family is still looking for answers. Bill Loewen disappeared in the earlymorning hours of Aug. 30. His vehicle was found empty on Overlanders Bridge. The 68-year-oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body was discovered by a kayaker at the mouth of Kamloops Lake on Sept. 3. The coroners service is still investigating the death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At this point, basically, things are still ongoing,â&#x20AC;? regional coroner Mark Coleman told KTW. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From our point, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still undetermined. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no evidence of foul play.â&#x20AC;? Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt Grant Learned said the police investigation into the death has concluded, with no suspicion of any criminal activity. There are still questions that remain unanswered. In an interview with KTW last month, Dave Loewen, an Abbotsford city councillor and Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, said the family was left with uncertainty based on what the coroner had said. Loewen said the family had been told suicide had been ruled out and that Bill had four cracked ribs. The family was also

left with questions about the vehicle, which was found abandoned facing the wrong way on the Overlanders Bridge. Loewen and other family members have met with Kamloops RCMP. He told KTW on Oct. 5 the family is still waiting to hear the official coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report. The widow of a Kamloops man who was murdered on the Overlanders Bridge in 1999 said the story of Billâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disappearance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and the questions still surrounding his death â&#x20AC;&#x201D; brought back memories. Sandy Gormleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband, Douglas, was attacked and killed on March 18, 1999, while riding his bike across the bridge after a shift working as a cook at a restaurant. He was kicked and beaten to death by three men. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That bridge needs more lights,â&#x20AC;? Gormley said, speaking to KTW from her home in Courtenay, B.C., where she moved after her husbandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you walk by the bridge late at night or you drive by there, there is lighting, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not enough.â&#x20AC;? Gormley said she petitioned Kamloops city council in 2000 to increase lighting on the bridge, but was told the lighting was adequate. Coleman said it could be weeks or months before the full coronerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s report into Loewenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death is completed.

Chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new prez eyes civic election The voice of business in the Tournament Capital has a new leader at the helm. The Kamloops Chamber of Commerce has named Maurice Hindle, sales manager for Moly-Cop Canada, as its new president until 2013. He takes over for Peter Aylen, who headed the organization for

the last 18 months. Hindle told KTW he expects a busy term as president and plans to focus on ensuring the chamber remains the â&#x20AC;&#x153;voice of businessâ&#x20AC;? in the city. He said the chamber has a stellar record of advocating policy issues on behalf of local businesses at both the federal and

provincial levels. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think what I want to do is to make sure we continue to be successful in that vein,â&#x20AC;? he said. Hindle served on the chamberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors for five years and moves into the position mid-year due to a realigning of the executive in March. The chamber will

RECYCLING

Conserve during WRW in Canada

Waste Reduction Week (WRW) in Canada is intended to raise public consciousness about waste and its environmental and social ramifications. This year, Waste Reduction Week will be marked from Oct. 17 to Oct. 23. The WRW theme, “Too Good To Waste”,

is about conveying an appreciation for the richness and beauty of the diverse world and the importance of working toward ecological sustainability by conserving resources and curbing wasteful practices. The ultimate goal is to educate, engage and empower Canadians to reduce waste

through provision of access to relevant information, opportunities and options. WRW in Canada is coordinated by a coalition of 13 recycling councils and sister organizations from across Canada. For more information, go online to wrwcanada.com.

WANT TO RECYCLE YOUR UNWANTED ELECTRONICS? Here’s where you can recycle them safely and free of charge in Kamloops:

Full Refund Bottle Depot Unit 115, 805 Notre Dame Drive, Kamloops (250) 851-9746

General Grant’s North Shore Bottle Depot 611 Fortune Drive, Kamloops (250) 376-9600

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS STEWARDSHIP ASSOCIATION OF BRITISH COLUMBIA (ESABC) PROGRAM? ESABC is a not-for-profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia to provide a province wide recycling system for unwanted electronics.

WHAT ARE THE ACCEPTABLE ELECTRONIC ITEMS INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM? Effective July 1, 2010, the following items can be recycled free of charge at any Encorp Return-It Electronics™ Collection Site: display devices, desktop computers, portable computers, computer peripherals, computer scanners, printers and fax machines, non-cellular phones and answering machines, vehicle audio and video systems (aftermarket), home audio and video systems, and personal or portable audio and video systems.

Lorne Street Bottle Depot 270 Halston Avenue, Kamloops (250) 372-3721

ISN’T IT IMPORTANT TO REUSE BEFORE RECYCLING? While the program is designed to manage unwanted electronic products that have exhausted their reuse potential, we strongly encourage users to first reuse their products. If you choose to donate to a charity, make sure you have backed up your data and wiped your drives clean prior to donation.

HOW ARE ELECTRONICS RECYCLED? Electronics collected for recycling are sent to approved primary recyclers in North America. They are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products are separated into their individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products.

RECYCLING

British Columbia on the cutting edge of recycling The environment ranks high on the priority list of British Columbians. But does this commitment to go green extend to recycling? Turns out, it does. British Columbians are on the cutting edge of recycling. Every time they recycle products like used electronics, beverage containers, beer bottles or oil, they are taking part in one of B.C.’s many industrymanaged recycling programs. In 1971, B.C. became the first jurisdiction in North America to establish a mandatory depositrefund system for soft drink and beer containers. In the following 40 years, the province introduced many other innovative recycling programs and earned a reputation as a recycling pioneer. These widely supported programs have since put B.C. in a leadership position throughout Canada and across North America. Today, many British Columbians do not realize how extensive their recycling programs are, or that these programs are managed and operated by industry. In fact, B.C. has 12

industry-managed recycling programs in operation, ranging from beverage containers to tires, electronics, batteries, paint, gasoline and other flammables, and oil. B.C.’s industry-managed recycling programs operate on the policy of extended producer responsibility (EPR), a concept based on the principle that suppliers, manufacturers and consumers share the responsibility to minimize their environmental impact by managing the life cycle of the products they make, sell and use. As a result of the province’s recycling regulation, B.C. is currently at the forefront of EPR in North America. Generally, EPR programs are managed by non-profit industry stewardship associations. This structure has led to effective and efficient programs, which prevent greenhouse gas emissions, divert more and more material from landfills each year, and ensure toxic substances — including paints and flammables — do not end up in our soil or water. Just how effective are our recycling programs? Consider:

• Recycling one glass bottle saves enough energy to power a light bulb for four hours; • In 2009, recycling redirected over one billion beverage containers, cartons, cans and drink boxes from landfills; • Recycling four tires can save the equivalent of 18 gallons of gasoline. In the future, expect to see B.C. add more industry-managed recycling programs to divert items away from landfill and help trim the $250 million annual bill local governments pay to manage the solid waste produced provincially each year. A recent survey conducted by Leger Marketing found 63 per cent of British Columbians prefer buying products from recycled materials. Due to the success of B.C.’s industry-managed recycling programs, they should have even more of these products to purchase in the future. Further information on recycling or on finding a local recycling depot, can be found online at bcstewards.com.

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.

He loved family get-togethers, cooking, fishing, camping, tending to his large vegetable garden and Sunday picnics with friends. His passing leaves a big void in many hearts which will be impossible to fill. Prayers will be recited in Sacred Heart Cathedral on Friday, October 7, 2011 at 1:00 p.m., with the Reverend Father Vincent Asomugha celebrant. Private interment will follow at Hillside Cemetery. A special thank you to Cheryl from the Home Support Program who was there to get medical help for Sergio, and thank you to all other Home Support Care Aides that helped Sergio take care of his wife.

A Vanished Friend Around the corner I have a friend In this great city that has no end; Yet days go by, and weeks rush on, And before I know it a year has gone, And I never see my old friend’s face, For life is a swift and terrible race. He knows I like him just as well As in the days when I rang his bell, And he rang mine. We were younger then, And now we are busy, tired men, Tired of playing a foolish game, Tired with trying to make a name. “Tomorrow, I will call on Jim, Just to show that I am thinking of him.” But tomorrow comes and tomorrow goes, And the distance between us grows and grows, Around the corner, yet miles away “Here’s a telegram, sir,” “Jim died today!” And that’s what we get, and deserve in the end, Around the corner a vanished friend! 450 Lansdowne St. Unit 111 Kamloops, BC V2C 1Y3 374-9188 or 1-800-403-8222 BRITISH COLUMBIA AND YUKON DIVISION

Man on a mission After a disastrous end to the 2010-2011 campaign, forward Brendan Ranford is deadset on redemption By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

B

RENDAN RANFORD made a mockery of many a goaltender last season, but it was he who turned out to be the joker in the end. The 19-year-old forward from Edmonton had racked up 28 goals and 58 points by the time St. Nick made his December rounds. When January began, Ranford was dead even on points with Medicine Hat forward Linden Vey, who went on to win the Western Hockey League scoring title with 116 points. Then, things went horribly wrong. “My conditioning wasn’t totally there after the Christmas beak,” Ranford told KTW as he prepared for his first regular-season game tomorrow (Oct. 7) at home against Spokane. “I wasn’t in good shape and I needed to be to play the minutes I was playing.” Too much of grandma’s famous holiday gravy? Perhaps, but there is more. “I felt maybe a little bit overconfident,” the 5-foot10, 189-pound left winger said. “At the start of the season, I was working hard and, when I got to the midway part, I thought it was

going to come easy.” It didn’t. Ranford finished the season with 86 points, scoring only five goals in January, February and March combined. He was minus-18 during the same time period. The sharpshooter with a toothless grin was doing anything but smiling when he hit rock bottom in March, his team fighting for a playoff spot with four games to play. Ranford cross-checked linesman Kris Hartley across the chest during a home tilt against Kelowna on March 11. He was suspended six games. “I hurt my team and it was a selfish play,” Ranford said. “It wasn’t the right thing to do and I’ve learned from that over the summer.” Kamloops, with its top scorer out of the lineup, stumbled across the finish line and missed the playoffs for the second time in franchise history. To make matters worse, Ranford’s play in the second half of the season might have scared the Philadelphia Flyers away from signing their seventhround pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. “I feel that, if I would’ve kept up and stayed more consistent, I would’ve signed a con-

tract with Philadelphia,” Ranford said. “That’s my fault and I take full responsibility for not doing that.” Kamloops’ 8-2 home victory over Victoria on Sunday, Oct. 2, marked the last game of Ranford’s suspension. It also signalled a new beginning for the budding hockey star, who cannot wait to return to the lineup when the puck drops at 7 p.m. in Interior Savings Centre tomorrow night. “This is a whole new year,” Ranford said. “It’s a fresh start for me with everything.” One look at Ranford on a bike inside the Blazers’ training facility is telling: He is in very good shape. He spent the summer with his grandparents in Red Deer, where calorieburning cycling excursions and lengthy runs were the norm and gravy was nowhere to be found. The pitfalls and bad decisions of last season are now in Ranford’s rear-view mirror — and there’s nothing but open road ahead. It seems the only thing that can stop him is a U-turn halfway through this season. “I’ve got to learn from last season and move on,” he said. “I’ve served all my games and I’m just ready to play hockey.”

Kamloops Blazers’ forward Brendan Ranford has a lot to prove this season. Dave Eagles/KTW

HERE MIGHT be a tilt for the ages on Friday, Oct. 7, when the Kamloops Blazers play host to the Spokane Chiefs at Interior Savings Centre. Defenceman Josh Caron, 20, of the Blazers established himself as a WHL heavyweight in the 2009-2010 campaign, dropping the mits 20 times against some of the WHL’s toughest competitors. The 6-foot-4, 212pound Blazers’ D-man missed much of last season due to injury and 6-foot-2, 210 pound Spokane tough guy Darren Kramer, 19, became one of the league’s most dominant fighters.

I am meeting with many folks this spring who have found themselves wondering if it is time to sell their home. Bills, household expenses and poorly structured mortgages can wreck havoc on the family finances. If this sounds like you, there are other options to explore, and you often don’t have to sell your home unless you want to! High housing costs can sometimes be addressed by looking at two things: 1. Amortization

DARREN KRAMER 46 CAREER WHL FIGHTS

Entry Draft. Former Blazers’ D-man Corey Fienhage squared off with Kramer in Kamloops on Oct. 6, 2010. The fight produced no clearcut winner. On Friday, Caron and Kramer will share an ice surface for the same time.

For years, many lenders have been advising clients to choose 20 or 25 year amortizations so the client doesn’t have to pay very much interest. The problem here is that sometimes the payments are so high that the client ends up putting emergency expenditures, vacations and other costs on credit cards. The result is that people will be “cash poor, house rich” and the high credit card interest becomes unbearable. I have come to recommend choosing a longer amortization, BUT, we pick a lender that allows you to put 20% extra on your mortgage each year penalty free. When you see “amortization” think “minimum payment”. There are several ways to approach paying off your mortgage faster that don’t involve longer amortizations. For example, we can write up your mortgage with a “minimum payment”, but allow that when you have extra money, you can payoff your mortgage principle penalty free. Ask to see what this looks like on paper for you. 2. Refinancing In some cases, we can use the equity from your house to payoff credit card bills, car loans, etc. This means we pay off high interest debt with low interest debt. We don’t change how much money you owe, just how much interest you get charged on it. If you are struggling with month to month bills or know someone who is, call me BEFORE you miss a payment. Once you have missed payments on your credit bureau, lenders are less likely to approve your mortgage change.

TRU WOLFPACK SPORTS

Piggot pegged player of the week Ashley Piggot was named the Pacific Western Athletic Association’s women’s soccer player of the week for her performances against Vancouver Island University (VIU) and Capilano University on the weekend (Saturday, Oct. 1, and Sunday, Oct. 2,) at Hillside Stadium. She scored two goals and was a major influence in the middle of the park, winning challenges and forcing quick turnovers with stifling defence in the Pack’s 3-1 win over Vancouver Island on Saturday. Nine minutes into the match, midfielder Alanna Bekkering crossed to Piggot, who directed a header past

the VIU keeper, Shelby Walker. In the 59th minute, the Bekkering-Piggot tandem connected again. It was a similar play, off a corner kick, with Piggot finishing the set play with a wellcontrolled header. “She had an excellent game, with two headers and the chance for more,” TRU head coach Tom McManus said after the match. “I told the players all year long that I wanted to see some goals coming off headers. “Ashley took advantage of the opportunity today.” On Sunday against Capilano University, Piggot was a rock in the middle of the park as she not only distrib-

uted the ball effectively to the TRU outside midfielders, but was a force in shutting down Capilano’s top offensive threats in a nil-nil draw at Hillside. McManus said any coach would love to have Piggot on their team. “She trains hard, plays hard and seems to be a player you never see as she plays a lot of one- and two-touch, opening up defences,” he said. “You see her when she scored goals, which she did on Saturday, scoring two goals with her head. She is in her final year and she will be greatly missed next year. Great leader and a true quality player.” — PacWest sports

Busy weekend for the WolfPack There is plenty of TRU WolfPack action for fans to feed on in the River City this weekend. The Pack men’s soccer team hosts the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) Timberwolves at 2 p.m. on Sunday,

Oct. 9, at Hillside Stadium. TRU’s women meet UNBC at Hillside at noon on Sunday. On Friday, Oct. 7, TRU’s baseball squad meets the Okanagan Athletics of Kelowna in a doubleheader, with the first pitch scheduled

to be thrown at 5 p.m. at Norbrock Stadium. The WolfPack’s women’s basketball squad tips off against the Mount Royal Cougars in exhibition play at 6 p.m. on Saturday at the Tournament Capital Centre.

Ashley Piggot is the Pacific Western Athletic Association women’s soccer player of the week.

Penton: Rivera’s cutter a saviour for Yankees Forty-year-olds playing major professional sports have almost always been hangers-on, once-great players merely playing out the string. Let’s cut to the chase and meet the exception — Mariano Rivera of the New York Yankees. Rivera, a Panamanian, will be 42 years old this November and he is still Major League Baseball’s best, most reliable, and certainly most amazing — considering his age — relief pitcher. This year, the ace closer saved 44 games for the Yanks, the fourth-best total of his career. Let’s also cut to the chase and zero in on why Rivera has defied every age-related athletic assumption and continued to mow down hitters and save victories for the

BRUCE PENTON From PRESS ROW Yankees, who are chasing yet another World Series title: The baffling ‘cutter.’ Rivera’s ‘cutter’ — a cut fastball — is the only pitch he throws. Normally, a onepitch pitcher has about as much job security as a hockey player who goes over on his ankles, but that cutter is so dominating, so infuriatingly hard to hit that Rivera has racked up 603 saves since 1996 — the most in baseball history. Hardballmechanics. com says the break

on Rivera’s pitch is “so late, the batter must commit to swing before he knows where it’s going. That late break is a product of maximum rotation and just the right finger pressure on the ball.” Rivera throws with such ease of motion that his right arm seems like it could throw 95-m.p.h. cutters for another 10 years. When he finally decides to retire, he will have established a saves’ record that will stand forever. Perhaps his longevity is due to his late start in baseball. Rivera was almost out of his teens before a scout noticed him — and, even then, he was a shortstop who pitched in an emergency one day when the regular starter didn’t show up. He underwent elbow surgery at the age of

23 and the Yankees thought so little of him, they didn’t even protect him when the Florida Marlins and Colorado Rockies held drafts to stock their expansion teams. But, something clicked for Rivera in 1995 — he discovered

his cutter. He’s been dominating hitters ever since. Will he be a firstyear inductee in the Hall of Fame? Automatic, just like that reliable cutter.

“QUOTE, UNQUOTE” • Dwight Perry of

the Seattle Times: “Of all the soccer teams to be fined because fans threw cups of excrement, why did it have to be Cologne? • Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel recalls a couple of his favourite quotes from legendary Clemson

coach Frank Howard: — “I retired for health reasons. The alumni got sick of me.” — When the school president asked him to keep his salary quiet: “Don’t worry, I’m as ashamed as you are.” brucepenton2003@ yahoo.ca

SPORTS

Curling a fun and affordable winter sport By Randy Olson SPECIAL TO KTW sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

A

S WE START A new season, you may be thinking of locating your curling equipment or perhaps investing in some new technology. Curling is generally seen as an affordable sport and, for the most part, it is.

Types of Broom While it’s lovely to have a carbon-fibreshaft curling broom, at $200 bucks a pop it seems like an excessive expense if you’re just starting out. Fear not! There are lots of reasonable options out there that will work just fine for someone who is curling once or twice a week. Most brooms sold

today are synthetic. Lower-priced brooms don’t have a swivel head. These work fine for new curlers. As you move up in the price range, the broom shaft changes from wood to fibreglass to carbon-fibre. Whichever one you choose, remember to replace the synthetic head with a brand new one every year. The head may need to be replaced the more often you curl. Top competitive teams replace heads after every major event. When purchasing a new synthetic broom, buy a broom head brush to clean the broom head after each use, rather than with your bare hand. It will stay cleaner longer using a brush and it will not become wet during the game.

GET ON THE ICE The Kamloops Curling Club welcomes new members, regardless of age or experience level. Whether you are a new or seasoned curler, the Victoria Street facility has a league that’s just right for you. The Kamloops Curling Club has 13 leagues offering a wide variety of social and competitive leagues for all ages and skill levels. Most leagues begin in October and run through to April. If you don’t have a team, no problem. Simply join as an individual or a couple and league organizers will set you up on a team. For more details on each league, including contact information, call 250-372-5432.

ROCK

THE

HOUSE Welcome to Rock The House, a regular column on all things curling. Whether you are an ice addict or someone who still thinks curling is done only in anticipation of a Saturday-night date, this column will educate. Hurry hard and read on!

Curling Shoes As for shoes, for your first season, you may wish to opt for a slip-on slider. They’re inexpensive and they work great. They do get a little

tiresome after a while, as they tend to move around a bit on your foot. You have to remember to take it with you to the end you’re throwing from and, often, you have to sit down to take them on and off.

If you do want to purchase shoes, keep in mind that top-of-theline isn’t always best for beginners — nor is it economical. The more expensive shoes often have very fast sliders on them. The thicker the slider, the faster it goes and the more expensive it is. Ask in the pro shop for a beginner shoe. There will generally be several different styles (they’re even starting to come in colours other

than black now!) If you are going from a slip-on to a shoe with a fixed slider, be aware you will likely find it to be a little slick at first, but you’ll get used to it quickly. Grippers should be replaced at least once a year For someone curling once a week, they should be replaced at least once a year. Top competitive teams go through several a season. Keep an eye on the

rubber to make sure it isn’t flaking off as, often times, when rocks are consistently picking, it can be blamed on flaking grippers. Also note that after a few weeks of use, a build-up of grime is found inside the gripper. The gripper needs to be turned inside-out and washed with soap and water. This grime may cause rocks to pick (turn sharply) on the ice.

Every used Volkswagen you'll find here has been carefully hand-picked and inspected by a Volkswagen dealer.

Valdy still writing songs about freedom By Dale Bass

He’s still a hippie at heart

STAFF REPORTER ’dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

P

AUL VALDEMAR HORSDAL GOT A PHONE CALL IN EARLY JUNE The caller wanted to know if — should he be nominated — he would accept the Order of Canada. “I didn’t say ‘Duh’,” Horsdal said with a laugh. “And, then he told me I was getting it and I couldn’t say anything to anyone about it until it was announced on July 1. “So, I forgot about it,” said the man most Canadians know simply as Valdy. “And then, I got a text from someone in Calgary on June 30 congratulating me. The Globe and Mail had released the information.” He’s proudly wearing the pin that signifies the honour, Valdy said, and accepted it “in the name of all music instructors everywhere in Canada.” Valdy is passionate about music, about its role in society, about how it enhances life — and about how it’s being given, in his view, not nearly enough attention by government. It’s why he’s about to embark on his 11th tour of the Interior with his longtime friend, Gary Fjellgaard, all to support the George Ryga Centre. Touring as The Contenders, the pair takes the stage at Sagebrush Theatre on Oct. 29. He’s happy to help the Summerland-based centre named for the renowned B.C. playwright that mentors and fosters writers and artists. “It is an important place,” Valdy said. “It gives writers who are the voice of dissent a place to go because, in our [Stephen] Harper world, they’re never gonna get a cent to be writers. “So, we sing about it — but they write about it.” Valdy’s still a militant on issues that matter to him, but said “the edges 3 BEDROOMS STARTING AT $

have been knocked off a bit from all the mileage” he’s experienced in his decades-long career. “But, you have to stand up for things once in a while.” He loves playing at the Sagebrush, he said, because it’s the kind of place built for his kind of music. “It has beautiful sound there and they have this sound guy there, Doug Perry, who has a very good ear.” Talking about the theatre that is also home to the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra takes Valdy into another musical direction in the conversation. “We forget about how much work the musicians in symphonies put in. They practise for hours every day and then there are the rehearsals for the shows. “There is such a huge amount of work that goes into one show.” Classical music is as vital as dissent in some ways for Valdy — it will always find a way to exist. “If the symphonies all tanked, we’d see classical music start to show up in bars and smaller places. “It will always find a way.” He’ll be adding to the body of Canadian music in coming months as he finishes off another studio recording, tentatively titled Read Between the Lines. For those who think of him just as the guy who sang Play Me A Rock and Roll Song — and haven’t heard anything else since it was released in 1972, they may be surprised. “It’s very inconsistent,” He said. “It goes from acoustic to full rock.” There are horns, woodwinds and brass included and, although there are no strings yet, “we may use some to fill in some gaps.” He hopes it will be released by the end of the year. Tickets for the Sagebrush show are available at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca. PHASE 6

The king lives on dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a very simple reason why Gino Monopoli spends a lot of his time dressed as Elvis Presley. He looks like the iconic singer — at least Monopoli’s friends all convinced him of that. “I have a strong Elvis look, especially of him when he was young,” Monopoli said from his home in Toronto, explaining why he performs in a Presley tribute show. He’s bringing the full-stage production to the River City on Oct. 14 for a show at the Kamloops Convention Centre, 1250 Rogers Way. It’s more than just the physical similarity that led him to his current persona, Monopoli said. Sure, it helps that the weekend gigs belting out Hound Dog and Love Me Tender were successful, but there’s something about that vast discography that connects with all generations, Monopoli said. He takes his audience through the Presley musical life, starting in the 1950s and 1960s — with some of the more famous movie songs thrown onto the playlist — and even heads to the famous leather-jumpsuit comeback in 1968. From there, he moves through to the last years of Presley’s performing life.

While music is the raison d’etre, there’s a philanthropic side to his Elvis tribute, Monopoli said. Whe he tours — “and we’re always in motion, it seems” — Monopoli tries to link up with a charity or social agency to help promote their cause and raise some cash.

For the Kamloops show, he’s partnered with the Canadian Cancer Society. “They’re not all fundraisers, but we try to do it when we can. Sometimes it’s just with maybe a children’s group or a seniors’ home, but it’s important to make them part of it and help them.”

Tickets for Gino Monopoli’s Elvis Tribute 19-plus show are $32.50 plus taxes and service charges. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and Elvis takes the stage a 7:30 p.m. Tickets are at the Kamloops Live box office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca.

T

HIS YEAR, Oct. 2 to Oct. 9 is the week set aside to raise awareness about mental illness. Mental Illness Awareness Week is an annual national publiceducation campaign designed to help open the eyes of Canadians to the reality of mental illness. The week was established in 1992 by the Canadian Psychiatric Association. National Depression Screening Day always occurs during this week. This year, you can participate in our free depression screening in the Old Main Building at Thompson Rivers University today (Oct. 6) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

If you time your visit, you can also hear Heather Reibin of Kamloops Mental Health and Addictions talk about depression and get your questions answered. Find out more about mental-health first aid and see if this is training that makes sense for you to take. Most businesses know how to handle a physical injury or illness, but do you know what to do when someone is experiencing a panic attack or appears to be going through an acute mental-illness crisis? Mental illness will be diagnosed in one of every four Canadians. We can only assume

it is present and remains undiagnosed in others. Regardless, mental illness affects everyone in the family, classroom or workplace, and all of us are touched by the impacts of mental illness either directly or through the costs to employers and the health-care system. Depression is a very common mental illness in Canada, with one in 10 people being diagnosed with a serious depression. When there are downturns in the economy, there is a concurrent increase in the number of people seeking treatment for the blues. Thanks to the efforts of many people and organizations, there is more acceptance now

than in years past for people seeking help when they suffer from depression or any other mental illness. Can you name any five of the most common symptoms of depression? If you said low mood (sadness), decreased interest in activities, weight changes, sleep disturbances, restlessness, fatigue, feeling guilty or worthless, or experiencing foggy thought processes, give yourself an A+. If you are experiencing any of these, see your doctor and find out if you are experiencing depression or some other illness. The sooner depression is treated, the better the outcomes tend to be.

Balancing act in Saudi Arabia

I

T’S AMAZING how much sub-text you can pack into a single word. Consider this recent announcement by King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia: “Women will be able to run as candidates in the municipal elections and will even have the right to vote.” Well, hurray. On the other hand, you could easily accuse the 87-year-old monarch of dragging his feet on reform because he waited until this year’s municipal elections were almost upon the country before announcing that women could vote the next time, in 2015. Boo. But that’s not fair to King Abdullah. He’s actually moving fast on women’s rights because 2015 will be only eight years after Saudi Arabian men were allowed to vote for the first time, in the 2007 municipal elections. And, women will henceforward also be eligible for appointment to the Shura Council, the 150-member unelected congress the king consults with on matters of public concern. Hurray. Hang on a minute. Two days after Abdullah made that announcement, a Saudi court sentenced a woman to receive 10 lashes for the crime of driving. Boo. The king then overturned the court ruling and spared the woman.

GWYNNE DYER World WATCH Hurray. And, on and on, in a endless counterpoint of progressive measures and conservative crackdowns. So, what is actually going on here? What we are seeing is a few surface manifestations of the struggle that is happening among the Saudi elite about how to respond to the “Arab spring”. The pro-democracy movements are operating right along Saudi Arabia’s frontiers, in Jordan, in Yemen and, most frighteningly, in Bahrain. Everyone agrees that something must be done — but what? In the case of Bahrain, where a largely Shia protest movement threatened to infect the Saudi Arabia’s own Shias (who live mostly in the eastern province, where the oil is), the answer was clear. Bahrain’s democratic movement was crushed by force, with much of the force being supplied by Saudi troops that Riyadh lent to Bahrain’s ruling family. Indeed, it was probably Saudi pressure that swung the balance in Bahrain in favour of an

armed crackdown. Elsewhere, what happens beyond the borders is of less importance, for Saudi citizens know they are vastly richer than Yemenis or even Jordanians. But, they are probably not entirely immune to dreams of democracy, so what should be done to strengthen their immune systems? When King Abdullah returned from three months’ medical treatment abroad in February, he announced a vast new package of welfare measures, including education and housing subsidies and 15 per cent pay raises for government employees. Total cost: about $36 billion. That’s about $1,300 for every man, woman and child in the country. Thus began the latest round in the perpetual tug-of-war between those (including the king) who feel some economic and political concessions are necessary to head off worse trouble, and others (including much of the royal family and most of the religious establishment) who believe that even one step back from the status quo would put the regime on a slippery slope. This is an argument that breaks out inside any autocratic regime whenever change threatens and it’s clear which side Abdullah is on, but he has very limited space to manoeuvre. His first priority is to keep his immediate family — around 22,000 at last count

— in the style to which they have become accustomed, and their expectations are very high. If they collectively decide his decisions are endangering their privileges, they will remove him. In a system of succession that does not have a strict rule of primogeniture, that is easily done. Then he must contend with the ulema, the senior religious authorities of the Wahhabi sect of Islam the Saudi ruling family has been allied to for more than a century. Their support is vital to the regime’s legitimacy and it would certainly weaken if Abdullah carried out reforms that conflicted with their austere and deeply conservative vision of Islam. If, despite all that, he chooses to make major reforms to the political system, he cannot even be sure they will stop the slow decline in the ruling family’s authority. When 40 per cent of those in the 20-24 age group have no work, and fully half the country’s population is under-19s who will be looking for work in the

next two decades, you cannot call the system stable, no matter how good the welfare system is. There is a striking difference in what the pro-democracy movements have led to in the one-party dictatorships of the Arab world and in the traditional monarchies. In the dictatorships, mostly military, the outcome has been revolution and regime change: Tunisia, Egypt, Libya and, perhaps soon, Syria. In Jordan and Morocco, by contrast, there is a good chance the outcome will be much democratization backed by a stable constitutional monarchy. Such an outcome is unlikely in Saudi Arabia, which has a great deal further to travel. On the other hand, there is not much visible demand for full democracy in the kingdom; maybe some cosmetic measures will suffice. King Abdullah is old and ill — and he is hoping that will be enough.

TRAVEL

Experience Palau’s underwater wonders By Jane Cassie SPECIAL TO KTW travelwriterstales.com

I

’M NOT A HUGE FAN OF SURVIVOR BUT, AS I PREPARE TO JUMP INTO THE SWARM OF JIGGLING JELLYFISH, I WISH I WAS. A few tips from its Palau escapades might come in handy right about now. “Just take that leap of faith,” Loreen Sugiyama said with a cheeky grin. It’s easy for her to say; she’s not wearing the snorkel. But, reflecting back over this day there are a couple of things I knew about my Palauan guide. She’s true to her word — and she’s all about the adventure. Sugiyama does, after all, work for Fish n’ Fins, a tour company that offers some of the best ways to check out Palau’s treasures. As well as land excursions that loop over the hilly terrain, its aquatic lineup caters to any waterbaby — from veteran divers to senior snorkelers. Either way, it’s like dipping into an aquarium — rain or shine. “No worries,” Sugiyama reassured when we headed out earlier under a dome of cloud. “It never rains for long.” I gave her a questioning glance when monster-size droplets spill from the swollen skies. But, instead of seeking refuge beneath the cruiser’s sheltering pop-top, I remained riveted to the bow — spellbound by Mother Nature’s surrounding beauty. Palau’s famous Rock Islands have that alluring effect. The 500 or so jungle-draped landforms, in the western corner of Micronesia vary in size from mushroomshaped mounds to undulating masses and, over millions of

years, pounding wave action has eroded their undersides, giving each a cute bowlstyle haircut. Thirty minutes after leaving the main hub of Koror, we glided into a tranquil bay where a colourful coral garden is home to giant Tridacnas clams. “Some are 100 years old,” Sugiyama said, “and weigh 250 pounds.” My heart quickened when thinking about these yawning creatures that thrive beneath. But after checking them out, it’s easy to see they’re totally satiated by their inhouse bounty of coral and tropical fish. Although the display superseded my visual expectations,

after coming up for air, Sugiyama assured there was more to come. “You’ll be blown away by the Cemetery,” she said as we trolled into the next snorkeling site. Layers of more fragile organisms enshroud slabs of concrete that were dropped here many years ago. And after planting my facemask water-side down, I discovered this ocean graveyard is anything but lifeless. Schools of tiger and parrotfish gave me the eye as they breezeed on by. Goat, lion and cowfish soon followed. And, feeding this frenzied safari are flourishing sponges and eco-rich coral.

Some looked like mushrooms, others like clumps of cauliflower. Our lunch came a little later. After a quick skim over the turquoise surface, we reached an island that could dubbed Eden. And, living up to her promise, Sugiyama’s weather prediction panned out. While soaking up the rays on this Gilligan Island lookalike, we dined on delicious teriyaki chicken, sticky rice and tiny bananas. Palau’s cuisine is a reflection of its history — a combo of home-grown, Japanese and all-American rolled into one. Past dictators rotated through this country more frequently

than London’s changing of the guard. Spain, Germany, Japan and the United States all enjoyed a piece of the Palau pie. But, I was fixated on the present. It was a day of visual overload and this final plunge was likely going to put me into overdrive. Jellyfish Lake was formed by the rising seas more than 12,000 years ago and was named in honour of its inhabitants. Millions of these swimmers that have a symbiotic relationship with the sun and algae flapped their way through the crystal clear water like wavering golden bells. And, because they’re not threatened by any predators — and have lost their sting — they weren’t a threat to us. “Fear not,” Sugiyama said. “It’s an experience you’ll never forget.” And, after submerging into this bath-like ethereal lake and feeling totally connected with nature, I realized my tour guide wass, once again, true to her word. Like the rest of this day in “Rainbow’s End,” it was quite the adventure.

EW RULE: In addition to fork and knife at the restaurant table, I require a little rubber spatula. Please. Otherwise, chefs, stop serving dishes with velvety sauces and meaty drippings. Drippings that glisten like beads on porcelain, imploring eater to bend forth and lick. While dining lately (l’Abbatoir in Vancouver’s Gastown), as I swirled my last gnocchi around the surface of my place, in a pattern meant to mop up every last gob-

DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT bet of goodness from the remnants of my bacon-wrapped halibut, I asked our server for a rubber spatula. He, thinking I was kidding, laughed. No spatula was produced. Which got me think-

ing about a certain bacon brioche roll that had been served before the meal — and nearly made me abandon plans to order anything at all and just ask to be shown to the bakery. Had I saved a corner of that roll and defended it against being cleared away, I wouldn’t now stand to lose the last of the best flavours from my main course. But, this is getting ahead of the story. It had, you see, already been a butterand-flour sort of day. That morning, Chefhusband had struck out in search of choco-

late croissants. And, by the time he returned to our 20thstorey lookout over English Bay, he had not only found those, but apple-almond danish and ventis of coffee. From there, our wanderings took us to Granville Island, a short water-taxi ride away, where shoppers yielded for the strange woman with a camera and two lenses, snapping pictures of cherries and berries, figs, fish, cheese, meat, bread and bushels of carrots. Over lunch (a turkey smokey that snapped deliciously when bit), I helped contribute to the

island’s pigeon problem with the remnant of my bun — until I ran out of crumbs and the whole flock flocked in the direction of a little girl with a cookie. We’d made reservations well in advance of our l’Abbatoir meal and, after some dealings with a piggish parking meter, we were seated with an aerial view of the bar and presented with a basket of said bacon brioche, companion with anchovy twists and caraway crisps. Two hours later, after four courses that hit all the right notes — and although I was quietly planning next week’s

diet as atonement for this week’s indulgences — we sat quietly, in the positively bovine contentment of those who have been properly fed. Even though, it has to be said, my dinner plate was, in fact, taken away with unclaimed drippings, and noth-

ing with which to mop them. Darcie Hossack is a food writer and author of Mennonites Don’t Dance. For past recipes, visit nicefatgurdie.wordpress.com. She can be contacted at onepotato2potato@shaw.ca.

Healthy eating can help create healthy heart

A

CCORDING TO THE CANADIAN HEART AND STROKE FOUNDATION, EVERY SEVEN MINUTES SOMEONE IN CANADA DIES FROM HEART DISEASE OR STROKE. Heart disease and stroke are two of the three leading causes of death in Canada, costing the Canadian economy $22.2 billion every year in physician services, hospital costs, lost wages and decreased productivity. Luckily, through a healthy lifestyle, we are able to control or prevent many of the risk factors for heart disease, like physical inactivity, being overweight, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol levels, stress, smoking and excessive alcohol consumption. Being physically active and eating a healthy diet will have a significant impact on the health of your heart and blood vessels. If you are looking for ways to make your diet more “heart-smart,” here are a few things to consider. • Concerned about cholesterol? A low-cholesterol diet is not necessarily the key to healthy blood cholesterol levels. The truth is the types and amounts of fat we eat actually have just as much or more influence on our blood cholesterol than dietary cholesterol does. If you have elevated cholesterol levels, you should limit high-cholesterol foods like egg yolks, shrimp and organ meats to twice a week — but it is also important is to follow the tips below to increase fibre and healthy fats. • Get the facts on fat. Not all fat is created

SIMONE JENNINGS Healthy HELPINGS equal, so following a strict low-fat diet is not the solution to a healthier heart. It is actually important to eat moderate amounts of healthy fats, such as avocadoes, olive oil, nuts and seeds and cold-water fish. However, you do want to limit saturated fat and trans-fat, as they can increase ‘bad’ cholesterol levels. Try to limit these fats to fewer than 20 grams per day combined, by choosing low-fat dairy products, lean meats, non-hydrogenated margarines (or butter, in moderation), and by avoiding baked goods made with hydrogenated oils. • Focus on fibre. Soluble fibre is particularly important for heart health as it helps keep cholesterol levels in check. Soluble fibre is found in oats, barley, ground flaxseeds, nuts, legumes, psyllium husks and apples. Fibre not only helps lower cholesterol, but it also helps prevent overeating and promotes a healthy body weight. • Be sodium savvy. Excess dietary sodium is a major risk factor for developing high blood pressure. Read the nutrition label on packaged foods to check the sodium content. Most packaged or canned foods contain added salt. It is recommended to limit sodium intake to 1,500 milligrams per

day. Look for products that state “no added salt” and rinse canned foods before eating. The best way to start making healthier choices is to be informed about what you are eating. Before putting an item in your grocery cart look at the nutrition labels. This means looking past the health claims on the front of the

package and reading the nutrition-facts table and ingredients list. For more information, go online to Health Canada’s website and check out the new interactive label reading tools at hc-sc. gc.ca/fn-an/labeletiquet/nutrition/indexeng.php. Simone Jennings is a registered dietitian in Kamloops.

FAITH

Columnist challenged to prove his beliefs

I

READ BILL LIGERTWOOD’S latest instalment of his Rational Thoughts column and was once again disappointed. For a man who speaks so much about critical thinking, science, evidence, reason and logic, he unfortunately seems to exempt himself from the very ideas he champions. I cannot recall a column Ligertwood has written in which he provides any evidence for his claims, nor have I read a column of his in which he shows how his assertions disprove or provide evidence against the truth of Christianity. Furthermore, Colin Madland his arguments You Gotta Have against Thompson FAITH Rivers University chaplain Narayan Mitra, the Bible and religion are clearly based on a juvenile understanding of the actual claims of the objects of his criticism. For example, in his latest column, he criticizes Mitra for a column he wrote in August. I read Ligertwood’s article before I read Mitra’s and was (not really) surprised to realize Ligertwood argues against views that are not advocated by Mitra at all. Ligertwood wrote: ‘The university chaplain is, in fact, warning students to beware of any science that does not follow a view of the world based on bronze-age mythology.” Even a cursory reading of Mitra’s column shows that idea is not mentioned anywhere,

explicitly or implicitly. For the sake of brevity, I will let readers examine for themselves what Mitra actually said. Ligertwood’s propensity to mischaracterize views he clearly does not understand is evidence he seems to be unwilling — because I am sure he is able — to truly think critically about ideas with which he disagrees. This is evidenced in his obvious misunderstanding of the controversy between Galileo and the church. Galileo never recanted his science or his faith and the Catholic church wasn’t afraid of his scientific ideas. It was afraid his philosophical ideas would upset their Aristotelian view of the world. (For further discussion on this topic, read The Soul of Science by Nancy Pearcey.) Another habit Ligertwood can’t seem to break is padding his articles with long lists of Bible verses or Old Testament commands he finds distasteful. He then assumes those things which he doesn’t like (or understand) must certainly disprove the Bible or the existence of God. This fact alone doesn’t make Ligertwood wrong, but he never provides any evidence from science or logic or intuition that suggests he is correct. If a scientist tried to submit a paper to a respectable journal with the level of evidence Ligertwood provides, the scientist would be summarily dismissed without a second thought. There is one point in Ligertwood’s article with which I, and most other people, would agree — that the universe began with a big bang about 13.5 billion years ago (likely closer to 14.6 billion, but I won’t quibble).

Now, this is an interesting point about which we could have fruitful discussion. Ligertwood goes on to claim “there is no evidence of any intelligent force, divine or otherwise, behind this event.” Here I disagree and it is easy to demonstrate why Ligertwood must be wrong. Imagine you are sitting at your computer on a quiet evening and you suddenly experience an explosion of sound, heat, light, smoke and flying debris that leaves your ears ringing, your eyes stinging and your lungs gasping for oxygen as your den fills with pungent gases. As the smoke clears and you begin to recover from the shock, you realize the explosion happened in just such a way that the contents of your garage, including some silicon, aluminum, glass and other assorted bits of debris have been turned into a fully functioning Apple computer. (I might have used a MS Windows-based PC, but those are clearly not intelligently designed.) Such an event would be impossible to ignore and would leave telltale signs that would linger for a long time afterward. But, more than that, nobody in their right mind would ever think this event could just happen without any cause at all. Everybody knows objects that begin to exist always have a cause for their existence. This statement is intuitively obvious and it includes universes. Ligertwood agrees the universe began to exist about 14-billion years ago, but simply asserts “there is no evidence of any intelligent force, divine or otherwise, behind this event.” What Ligertwood misses completely, because he fails to examine his assumptions

(critical thinking), is the brute fact of the big bang — just like the little bang in the preceding paragraph — is, in itself, evidence of a cause. When we talk about the beginning of the universe, we are saying all matter, energy, space and time came into existence at the moment we call the big bang. Since we already have established nothing comes into existence without any cause, we know something must have caused the universe to come into existence. And, by virtue of the fact matter didn’t exist without the universe, the cause of the universe must be non-physical. Since time also began with the beginning of the universe, the cause of the universe must be timeless. Finally, since the universe is so clearly complex and ordered according to laws of nature, the cause of the universe must be intelligent and rational. If Ligertwood wishes to show how my arguments fail, I would be grateful, but he must provide evidence one of the following premises is wrong: Premise 1: Everything that begins to exist has a cause for its existence. Premise 2: The universe began to exist. Conclusion: Therefore, the universe has a cause for its existence. I await his reply.

Most fatal Àres occur in residential settings where people feel safest. Fire can spread quickly through your home, leaving only precious minutes to escape. Your ability to get out fast depends on advanced warning from smoke alarms and advanced planning – creating a home Àre escape plan. Reduce your family’s risk from Àre by following the tips below. SMOKE ALARMS • Make sure everyone in your home can recognise the sound of the smoke alarm and knows exactly what to do when it sounds. • Install working smoke alarms near sleeping areas and on every level of your home. For maximum protection also install smoke alarms in bedrooms. • Smoke alarms should be tested and maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Alarms should be tested once a month by pushing the test button and listening for the alarm. • For battery operated smoke alarms, replace batteries at least once a year or for extended life batteries according to manufacturer’s instructions. Batteries should also be replaced when the smoke alarm makes a chirping sound. • Smoke alarms should be cleaned at least every 6 months, by gently vacuuming the exterior. • Smoke alarms do wear out and should be replaced at least every 10 years. HOME FIRE ESCAPE PLANS • Create a home Àre escape plan showing 2 ways out of every room. Practise your plan with your entire family by having a home Àre drill at least twice a year. • Choose a Family Meeting Place a safe distance away from your home. All family members should be taught to report to the family meeting place after leaving the home. • One person should then go to a neighbour’s house or the nearest phone in a safe location to contact 9-1-1 or your local emergency number.
