BACK TO SCHOOL — NOW WHAT? A primer on what teacher job action means for kids as they walk into class By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

School is back. And, 2011-2012 is shaping up to be anything but an ordinary school year. Mainly, it’s beginning with B.C.’s 41,000 public-school teachers launching job action against the provincial government. However, School District No. 73 board chairman Ken Christian said, students shouldn’t notice a difference. “No — from the

student’s perspective, it’s back to school as usual,” he said. “We really want to keep students out of this as much as possible.” Christian is, of course, referring to the ongoing contract dispute between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the provincial government. The teachers’ contract expired in April and ,in June, union members voted 90 per cent in favour of job action. The two sides

resumed bargaining on Aug. 23, but there hasn’t been much progress to report. Today, as SD73’s 14,000 students return to classrooms, teachers across B.C. are beginning phase 1 of their job action strategy.

MORE ON SD73 Turn to page A4 for more back-to-school newws According to Jason Karpuk, head of the Kamloops-Thompson Teachers’ Association, that will include teachers absolving themselves of all administrative duties — including supervision, collecting fees, distributing materials and attending staff meetings. Local teachers will meet tonight (Sept. 6)

to discuss exactly how to carry out the job action. “I’m hoping we continue to teach and do the job, and I’m hoping the pressure continues to build on the government,” Karpuk said. “Hopefully, the public will come to see teachers in this province are mistreated. “I think it’s going to be a long phase 1.” Karpuk said if and when subsequent phases begin, should a contract agreement not be

reached, what happens them will be up to B.C. teachers by way of a vote. SD73 staff will be impacted by the job action as well, with 22 district employees forced to help out at local schools. Christian said the staffers — everyone from board secretary-treasurer Kelvin Stretch to the district’s IT manager — will mainly be helping out with supervision. As part of phase 1 of teachers’ job action, they are no longer supervising

recess breaks. One aspect that should not be impacted by job action is extracurricular activities. Karpuk said coaching and supervising extra-curricular teams and groups is totally voluntary. “Extra-curricular is all up to the teachers,” he said. “It’s voluntary.” Karpuk wouldn’t speculate as to when phase 2 might commence, noting “it’s up to the membership” of the BCTF.

Falcon Lanes heroes strike up awards By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

When she took the 911 call on May 20, Cheryl Roos immediately knew it was serious. The first thing the emergency-medical dispatcher heard “was the defibrillator charging,” she said. At the other end of the call were three people intrinsically linked that day — Monica Christian, who had collapsed with a heart attack, and Joel Loehr and Don Harlock. The men knew Christian; she was a regular at Falcon Lanes Bowling on Oriole Road in Valleyview. A member of the facility’s women’s league, Christian came in that afternoon to bowl some extra frames. Loehr, a co-owner of the bowling alley, said hello and went into his office. Harlock was just starting his shift when they heard a loud bang, Loehr said. He looked out of his office to see Christian on her back, apparently unconscious, midway between the foul line and the ball-return machine of the 11th lane. Loehr grabbed the automatic exterior defibrillator (AED) — which he and his brother/business partner bought when they took over the alley — and rushed to

Joel, an owner of Falcon Lanes Bowling, and Don Harlock, an employee at the Valleyview business, were honoured for the vital assistance they gave a woman who suffered a heart attack at the bowling alley.

Christian. “She was having a hard time breathing and I was calling her name. I was yelling her name,” Loehr said. “And, I was trying to find a pulse. Her colour was going to purple so I took a deep breath and opened up the AED.” The only time he had ever used it was in training. In the meantime, Harlock was on the phone to 911, sum-

moning help. Those two decisions the men made led to them receiving awards from the B.C. Ambulance Service. In a ceremony on Friday, Sept. 2, Harlock received the Good Samaritan Award while Loehr received the Vital Link Plaque. Troy Clifford, BCAS district supervisor for the Kamloops region, said Harlock was recognized for his quick thinking and

selfless act of heroism. Loehr was similarly praised for his heroism and the critical role he played in the medical emergency. Coincidentally, Clifford learned later Christian is the aunt of another member of the BCAS in Terrace. He called the pair everyday heroes. “Unfortunately,” he said, “they are rare.” Statistics show the BCAS responds to more than 3,000 car-

diac arrests annually. The odds of surviving are four times greater if a bystander immediately starts CPR, something that doesn’t happen in 85 per cent of the cases. Clifford was working that day and was eventually called to the scene as part of the layered-response approach the BCAS follows. Roos was key to that decision. As she was talking

Loehr through using the defibrillator — which also has verbal commands built into it to make using it clearer — she was assessing the severity and calling out needed paramedics. Eventually, six paramedics would be involved in the call for help. Loehr said the decision to buy the AED was prompted by the reality most of the regular bowlers at Falcon Lanes are 50 or older.

Christian was the first person he ever had to use it on — and he hopes he never has to open the red case again. Christian was taken to hospital and has not been back to the alley since, although the men expect to see her soon. She called them at the end of August to let them know she’ll be coming back when the women’s league starts up this fall.

Back to school for drivers, too Back to school means back-to-school zones for drivers. Each school in Kamloops is surrounded by a 30 km/h speed zone, which is in effect every school day between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. “For drivers who have perhaps fallen out of the practice in the summer months, 30 km/h is a slow pace,” said Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned. “But, there’s a reason for that.”

Learned said children, especially in the first few weeks of the school year, are excited about returning to class and seeing their friends. Sometimes, that excitement can spill out onto the street. “Be focused on anticipating the unexpected,” he said. “Plan ahead in terms of, ‘What if?’” Learned said drivers should think about what they would do if, for instance, a child suddenly darted out into traffic.

“Thinking about it and preparing for it makes you better prepared to deal with it,” he said. Drivers also have to be mindful of school buses. “When you’re following a bus and it lights up, you have to stop,” Learned said. “You have to anticipate there’s a possibility someone may bolt out in front of your vehicle.” Given the traffic disruptions that generally come with the start of the school year, Learned

said it’s important for drivers to adjust their schedules. “Give yourself that mental check,” he said. “If that means you have to adjust your schedule a little bit, give yourself those extra few minutes.” And, for added incentive, Mounties will be making sure everybody is in compliance. “We will have officers out in full force,” he said. “We’ll be actively patrolling the school zones.”

14,000 students returning to class Fourteen-thousand students is right where School District 73 needs to be, according to the district’s board of education chairman. “It’s based on the declining birth rates and the aging demographics,” Ken Christian said. “I think we’ll be somewhere

stable around 14,000.” Christian said this year’s district enrolment is expected to be down about 200 students from last year. But, he said, that’s a good thing. “We’re getting close to being a sustainable size,” he said.

The district’s enrolment peaked in the early 1990s at about 20,000 students. n For all the information you need about back-to-school schedules and more, go online to the Kamloops-Thompson school district’s website at sd73.bc.ca. Click on “back to school”.

Opposed to parkade, but will not sign WHERE WERE YOU ON SEPT. 11, 2001?

By Jeremy Deutch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

If the group behind a counter-petition to quash the Lorne Street parkade is going to be successful, it will have to reach its 6,000-plus signature total without two prominent John Henrys. City councillors Denis Walsh and Marg Spina have been outspoken in their opposition to the parkade, but neither plan to sign the form. “I don’t think it’s appropriate in my role as a city councillor,” Walsh told KTW. He said he has spoken clearly about his opposition to the parkade and now believes the petition is an opportunity for the public to express its opinion. Walsh said he’ll accept the results either way. “If the taxpayers are OK with that expenditure and putting a parkade in our park, I’ll accept that,” he said. On Aug. 30, council gave the final approval to a bylaw to borrow $8 million to build the parkade, triggering the alternative-approval process. Opponents have until Oct. 11 to gather 10 per cent of the electorate’s signatures, forcing council to drop the project or send it to referendum. Spina said she generally doesn’t sign petitions because she wants to keep an open mind if new information surfaces. “I don’t think the role of politicians is to sign counter-petitions,” she said. “It’s to make sure the democratic process has a chance to be followed.”

Think Local

MARG SPINA: Will let democracy decide parkade issue.

DENIS WALSH: Will accept any decision arrived at by taxpayers.

Spina said she is prepared to listen to what residents have to say, but suggested that, based on the calls and emails she has received, there isn’t support for a parkade in that particular location. “I think democracy will tell us how people feel about the parkade,” Spina said. The counter-petition drive is being led by a group called Friends of Riverside Park. The city has determined the electorate number to be 65,332, which means the group will need to collect 6,533 signatures. It’s been reported the group gathered 250 signatures on the first day of its campaign on Aug. 31. In May, council decided to proceed with a two-level, 350-stall parkade in the Lorne Street parking lot adjacent to Riverside Park. The parkade is estimated to cost $7.8 million, with the project expected to go to tender in late December.

Sharp runs for council again By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

He came ever so close in the last civic election. Now, a former city councillor is hoping a third time is his charm for a seat at the table. Peter Sharp has decided to run for city council, joining a handful of other names seeking a political job. The long-time Kamloops resident said if elected, his focus will be on creating jobs and maintaining the infrastructure so residents don’t have to be concerned about quality of life in the community. “I think people live here because of the quality of life,” Sharp said. “Kamloops is my home by choice. I just want to continue to keep the city where families can grow and prosper.”

ronmental assessment to be complete before taking a stand. Sharp suggested the mine could benefit Kamloops by creating jobs, but then added he wouldn’t support the project if it’s deemed to have a major environmental impact. Six candidates — Arjun Singh, Ray Nyuli, Nelly Dever, Bryce Eberle, Andy Philpot and Donovan Cavers — have announced their intention to challenge the incumbents. There will be at least two new faces on council with John O’Fee’s departure earlier this year to join the Tk’emlups Indian Band as CEO and Jim Harker’s decision to move to Vancouver Island later this year. Of the remaining council members, John De Cicco has yet to confirm a re-election bid. He’s expected to make an announcement this week.

Sharp was a city councillor for six years, but lost his spot in 2005. In that election, he finished out of the top eight by 200 votes. He ran again in 2008, but suffered a similar fate, missing the cut by just 80 votes. He said he has a following that supports him, which he’ll be counting on to make a breakthrough. Sharp weighed in on a couple of issues likely to dominate the upcoming election campaign — the Lorne Street parkade and the proposed Ajax mine south of Aberdeen. He said he wasn’t privy to all the information that led to the parkade decision, since he wasn’t on council, but he sees no problem with a referendum if the counter-petition succeeds. As for the mine, he said it’s important to wait for the envi-

Water-usage fines declined in summer By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

It could be the weather — or, it might just be Tournament Capital residents are a little more conscious about their water use than in the past. The number of fines handed out to property owners not following seasonal water restrictions has dropped dramatically in the last three summers. According to the city’s bylaw department, 34 fines were issued this summer, compared to 61 in 2010 and 120 in 2009. Community and corporate affairs director Len Hrycan said the numbers are proof the city’s overall waterconservation strategy is working. “I think these numbers are reflecting a much greater degree of both compliance and concern and awareness for the environment,” he said. Hrycan explained the purpose of introducing the restrictions was to cut down demand on the water system during the peak season of summer.

The city’s water restrictions are in effect each year from May 1 to Aug. 31. Those contravening the restrictions are subject to a fine of $100 for a first offence and $200 for each subsequent offence. In May and June, the city handed out 14 tickets. The lousy weather was being credited with the low number of fines at the time. The weather turned around in the last half of the summer, with August being the driest in record. Still, the city gave out just 20 fines in that time. “From an environmental point of view, what these restrictions have demonstrated is that there is ability for us to reduce our environmental footprint and still maintain what we have come to expect, in terms of our backyards,” Hrycan said. Though Kamloopsians may be more cautious about their water use, the city indicated the annual restrictions will continue to be in place for years to come.

Word up! And down. Gibberish now joins the King’s English

I

CAME ACROSS THE Princes in the Tower on my way to a rendezvous with prerogative. Proofing a story that was to be published in KTW, I came across the word “prerogative”, which had been spelled “perogative”. Based on previous encounters with this oddly spelled word, I knew I had to check to ensure it did indeed have that funny silent “R” at the beginning. So, I turned to my trusty, thick, hardcover Canadian Oxford Dictionary, which sits like a language sentry on a side table in my office, a quick step-anda-half from my desk. The option to remain seated and use my fingers to visit any number of dictionary websites was there. It’s always there. However, rising from my chair, taking that step-and-a-half and picking up the hefty Oxford is very comforting. Turning the firm cover and running my finger down the side until finding the letter I need, and feeling the weight of the pages bypassed crash down with a thud is reassuring, a habit that remains even as books continue to be endangered in this Internet/iPod/iPad/bit torrent/ ebook world. On this day, I was on my way to “prerogative” when I flipped those familiar pages and they flopped with that familiar thud — and I came eye-totext with the Princes in the Tower. I had flipped just past my destination and the five words — Princes in the Tower — jumped out at me. I read the definition and was intrigued enough to find out more about this fascinating case that may or may not have been a Royal Family-inspired double child murder in 1483. In a nutshell: Princes Edward

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS and Richard may have been slain in the Tower of London by their uncle, Richard III, who wanted them dead to ensure he held onto the throne. The point here is I would never have come across this intriguing story had I remained seated and simply clicked on a dictionary website, where I would have typed “prerogative” or “perogative” or anything that resembled the word and been delivered straight to its correct spelling, pronunciation and definition. It’s fast, direct and flawless — and sterile, frigid and boring. The Internet is amazing and can bring you what you need to know in a nanosecond. But, unlike the dictionary in my office or the 1968 World Book of Encyclopedia set that may still be sitting in the unfinished basement of my childhood home, the Internet is all about the destination, not the journey. The Internet is a direct five-hour flight from Los Angeles to New York City; the dictionary or encyclopedia a multi-day road trip that absorbs Americana in all its forms. As the world changes at a dizzying pace, all staid old Oxford can do is take note — and it has with the addition of words that, a decade ago,

were gibberish. Oxford has added “retweet”, “sexting”, “jeggings” and “woot”, among others, as the English language continues to evolve (or regress, as some would lament). Words change. Some have their popular meaning altered radically (see “gay”); others mean the opposite of what most of us think they mean (“peruse” means to read something thoroughly, rather than to skim words as most of us believe to be the definition). Words die. Words are born. Whether words can be considered words is left to the folks at Oxford and Merriam-Webster. If you haven’t yet, pick up a copy of Simon Winchester’s The Professor and the Madman, an engrossing account of how the world’s most authoritative dictionary came to be with the considerable help of a murderous logophile confined to an insane asylum. A decade or so ago, I began compiling a notebook with words for which I wanted to know the origin. I also began a collection of words that are not words, yet should be, in my humble opinion. If the 26 letters of our alphabet can be rearranged by someone to make a word deemed acceptable by someone else, why can’t I declare a word official, regardless of whether Oxford or Webster agree? So was born “dilemmascent”, a word I felt perfectly described a person prone to misfortune. I liked it so much I used it once, in an editorial, with nary a grammarian raising an objection. As my dear old dad would say, with conviction: “Irregardless, I know what the hell you’re trying to say.” editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Today is the de facto start of autumn, in spite of the heat wave that continues to blister Kamloops. Today is the first day of classes as the 2011-2012 school year begins. Across the massive Kamloops-Thompson school district, 14,000 students are shaking off summer and getting ready to learn anew. Unfortunately, students will also be learning a bit about labour law as teachers begin job action tied to the fact their union, the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, cannot agree to a new contract with the government-appointed B.C. Public School Employers’ Association. Job action should not impact students at this point as teachers will still teach. What they will not do is administrative duties, such as taking part in parentteacher interviews, taking attendance or supervising school grounds during recess. That we are beginning the school year today and the two sides remain a Grand Canyon’s width apart on a long list of issues is all the more frustrating when one realizes both sides enjoyed a nice, long summer vacation (longer than any other working stiff could manage). The BCTF’s contract expired on June 30, yet the two sides did not sit down to meet until Aug. 23. That’s almost two months of bargaining time wasted, despite rhetoric from both sides claiming they want to reach a deal that is fair and that students and teaching conditions are the true focus of this battle. On behalf of parents and students across B.C. — get it done already.

Re: Mitra column: Back to school — confessing God on campus: “Another desperate column full of circular arguments and contradictions. “Here Narayan Mitra seems to infer institutes of education are a challenge and an affront to religion and faith, and that fear of God is wisdom, but God is love. “He states we can have no wisdom, morality or worth without believing in God. “Balderdash! He is chaplain at a university and appears to have no respect for knowledge or our educational institutions and no understanding of the universe. “Mitra seems to greatly fear the quick pace at which science is unravelling the secrets of the universe, which have yet to present any evidence whatsoever of any deities. “There are many places for students to worship off-campus or they may attend Trinity Western University in Langley. “I contend there is no place for religious dogma on a secular campus. “As the students say, ‘Don’t pray in my school. I won’t think in your church’.” — posted by Moonoverthenile

The perks of the public payroll Editor: I used to wonder who could afford some of the big luxurious homes that have recently been built in several areas of Kamloops. Now that the city has released some of its salary figures (‘City payroll rises by $1 million in 2010,’ Aug. 30), I don’t wonder any more. There is no way most of those people would make that kind of

money working in the private sector. Shame on whoever let things get this out of control. Apparently, the provincial government is appointing an auditor for municipalities to protect taxpayers. The cows have already got through the gate, though. Kim Young Kamloops

Why can’t city staff walk and work? Editor: Re: The Aug. 25 letter from Kristin Saunders (‘Pulsating meters cause concern about effects on health’): I think we should have meters, but I don’t want a smart meter. We do not need to be bombarded by radiofrequency signals day and night. Not everyone will be adversely affected, but the constant pulsations will be coming at us from every side. They will probably bother us more than we realize. The electronic age has provided us with helpful tools.

Let us remember they are tools and not our masters. Other places have banned smart meters and they must have reasons. Kamloops city council should take heed of the recent HST events. British Columbia residents did not want the HST, but the government pushed it on us anyway. Now the people have spoken and caused the recall of that tax. Kamloops residents didn’t want water meters, but city council says we have to have them anyway. If Kamloops breaks the contract with

Neptune Technology — the company installing the meters — it will cost us. However, if those meters are installed and cause health problems for our citizens, think of how much it will cost the health system. Removing the meters after 10 or 20 years will be costly, too. Guess who pays no matter what? What is wrong with plain-old wired-in meters with city staff who walk down the street every month or so to read them? We hear enough calls for job creation.

Editor: Kamloops voters now have an opportunity to sign a counter-petition regarding funding for the proposed parkade in Riverside Park. If at least 10 per cent of eligible voters sign the petition, council has two options: Hold a referendum or forget the idea. Provincial law says the city must make the counter-petition available. The legislation does not say where or how. Kamloops city council has ordered the petitions are only to be available at city hall and agreed that petitions can be downloaded from the city’s website at kamloops.ca. Those are the two options. Counterpetitions cannot be picked up in any other city buildings throughout Kamloops. Although the counter-petition will be available on the city’s website, it can’t be completed online. The form must be returned to city hall either by mail or in person. To succeed, those opposing the parkade must get the signatures of more than 6,600 eligible voters. I did a little number-crunching regarding 6,600 people all showing up at city hall to pick up and/or sign the counter-petitions. About 6,600 signatures are needed and city hall is open eight hours a day (8 a.m. to 4 p.m.), five days per week (Mondays to Fridays). That means counter-petitions will be available for about 30 working days. Thirty days multiplied by eight hours (city hall hours per day) equals 240 hours. If we divide 6,600 people by 240 hours, we have 28 counter-petition signees every hour city hall is open until the Oct. 11 deadline. That’s 28 electors visiting city hall every hour it is open, all of them asking to sign the same counter-petition. These are averages. There may be fewer at 8 a.m. and more during the lunch hour. Can we anticipate lineups? Perhaps signees could take a petition, sign it and drop it in the door mail slot? Would it hold 6,600 pages? It is time to move from the proverbial “man in charge to the woman who knows how to do this.” Would a reasonable staff person please organize this?

The heat remains on By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

The start of a new school year tends to signal the end of summer but, for those who keep a close eye on B.C.’s forests, the season isn’t done just yet. That much has been evident by weekend work to douse wildfires in Falkland and near the New Afton gold and copper mine 10 kilometres west of Kamloops. With temperatures this week expected to hit the low 30s, the fire-danger rating remains high in the Kamloops area and officials continue to warn people to be careful in the outdoors with the dry conditions across the region. “When we do start to see these conditions, it means the forests are continuing to be susceptible to fire starts,” said Alyson Couch, an information officer with the province’s wildfire co-ordination centre. Just last week, fire crews responded to a pair of fires in the Kamloops Fire Centre, one just outside the city limits near the Lafarge Bridge and a second near the community of Falkland, between Kamloops and Vernon. The fire near Kamloops scorched five hectares of land, while the Falkland fire torched 22 hectares. “This is actually the largest fire we’ve had since May,” said Lindsay

Carnes, fire information officer for the Kamloops Fire Centre, of the Falkland blaze. “It’s been a good year for people in the area with less smoke in the air and less worry about fires.” Quick action by the Falkland Volunteer Fire Department, fire suppression crews, air tankers (deployed from Kamloops, Penticton and Castlegar) and helicopters helped contain the blaze from reaching any nearby structures. “It got within less than half a kilometre of homes so we did have crews spraying on the ground to soak the area,” said Carnes. Despite the close calls, it’s been a very quiet summer for forest fires. As of Sept. 2, there were only 508 wildfires in the province — less than one-third of the 10-year average of 1,800, and 1,000 fewer than 2010. Only 11,844 hectares have been lost to fire, compared to 322,000 hectares in 2010. To date in the fire centre, there have been 209 reported fires — burning just 281 hectares. The 10-year average is 16,000 hectares. Fewer fires means more money stays in the province’s coffers. British Columbia has spent $50 million in 2011 to fight forest fires, but half of that amount has been spent sending local

firefighters to help out in other parts of the country — expenses that will be reimbursed. More than 1,700 firefighters have been sent to hot spots in Alberta and, more recently, Ontario this season. The government has recovered $24 million for its out-of-province contribution. The province spent $209 million fighting fires in 2010, nearly half of the $403 million it spent in 2009. Last year proved to be

a difficult fire season. There were 1,606 fires in the province, a sharp decline from the 2009 fire season, which saw slightly more than 3,000 fires burn the landscape. The seasonal average is 1,800. However, fewer fires didn’t mean crews weren’t busy. More than 334,000 hectares were burned in 2010, compared to 225,000 in 2009. Much of the damage was concentrated in the Cariboo-Chilcotin region.

Buron Healthcare Ltd. has been awarded the contract to create 125 residential-care beds in Kamloops. The facility, to be built on Tranquille Road in Brocklehurst next to Riverbend Seniors Community, should begin construction in early 2012 and be complete in 2013. The facility will be near the corner of Tranquille Road and Southill Street. The beds were announced in April, when the Interior Health Authority allocated $5.9 million for residential-care beds throughout the region. Buron operates the Haven Hill Retirement Centre in Penticton, which will soon be expanded by 66 beds, and the Simon Fraser Lodge in Price George. Eight proposals were submitted for the project. Residential-care beds provide roundthe-clock care for people with complex care needs, including the elderly and people with dementia.

By Jeremy Deutsch STAFF REPORTER

jeremy@kamloopsthisweek.com

For those let down by the summer’s weather, the onset of fall won’t likely foster a better feeling. Environmental Canada is predicting below-normal temperatures for the next three months for the west and east coasts of the country. The forecast includes much of the Interior and Kamloops. However, Jim Steele of Environment Canada noted it will be dryer than normal through November. Only the southeastern corner of the province is expected to see a normal fall. “Normal temperatures aren’t that bad, but anything can happen,” he said, adding there is no specific weather phenomenon causing the chillier forecast.

However, the Weather Network’s fall forecast is looking a little more positive for anyone hoping to be swinging a golf club in November. The Ontario-based network is forecasting fall conditions to be around normal, with a slow transition to winter. Only B.C.’s Central Coast is expected to see cooler-than-normal temperatures. Most will remember Kamloops couldn’t shake the effects of a La Nina weather system that brought wet and cool conditions through to the end of July. But, the season did finally show its warm face in August. The month was the driest on record, recording a minuscule 0.2 millimetres of rain. The previous record was set back in 1955 at just 0.5 millimetres. There was only one

day of measurable rain, compared to the average of nine for the month. According to Environment Canada, the average daily high of 29.6 C was slightly above the normal of 27.8 C for the month. The weather began to turn around in late July and is set to continue into this week, with temperatures in the 30s. There were also 18 days where the mercury topped the 30-degree mark, seven more than the average of 11 for August. Though the summer of 2011 will likely be remembered as a dud, the stats show a slightly different picture. The average daily high for the three summer months of June, July and August was 19.8 C, just shy of the 19.9 C average. It was also drier than normal with Kamloops, recording 61.3 millime-

tres of the wet stuff, or 65 per cent of the typical 93.8 millimetres. There were a total of 25 days where the temperature rose past the 30-degree mark, which was one less than normal. The warmest day of the summer was back on July 6 hitting 34.2 C. The summer didn’t pass by without a few wacky moments. A giant, but brief, storm rolled through Kamloops on July 26, dropping more than a 10 millimetres of rain on parts of South Kamloops in less than an hour. For about 60 minutes, parts of the South Shore were in chaos as emergency crews raced to keep up with flooded roads. The storm was classified as a once in a five- or 10-year event for the Tournament Capital.

Class is now in session New TRU law school welcomes first students By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER

tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

The new law school opening today (Sept. 6) at Thompson Rivers University could mark the beginning of a new era of legal education in Canada, according to the university’s president. “I really hope that this is an icebreaker for legal education in this country,” Alan Shaver told KTW. “Demand in Canada for law education is overwhelming. With our school, we’ll make a slight increase in this, but I hope we might open the doors for others.”

TRU’s is the first new law school in Canada in more than 30 years. There will be a ceremony this morning at the Brown Family House of Learning to officially open the law school. On hand will be Chief Justice Lance Finch, Chief Judge Thomas Crabtree, TRU chancellor and former B.C. Supreme Court Justice Wally Oppal and other government officials. Shaver said of the new school: “Someone stopped me on campus the other day and said he could feel the excitement building.” All TRU’s ducks are

in a row for the first year of the school to go off without a hitch. “We’ve got faculty,” Shaver said. “I’ve met them recently and I’m very impressed with them as people and their CV experience. “This is really very important.” Shaver said the students are also promising. “We’re looking at a really good group of students that are going to join us,” he said. “Our numbers look strong.” There are eight faculty members in place for the first year of the law school, which has accepted 65 students.

The number of faculty is expected to grow to 14 next year. The school will be housed in the new House of Learning for the time being, but will move into a revitalized Old Main building when renovations are complete.

Kamloops docs will be in action in Gambia By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

For Anna Peron, spending three weeks in Gambia helping to set up a surgical program is a small thing — but she knows the impact it will leave will be huge. Peron, a nurse at Royal Inland Hospital (RIH), is part of a Medicos en Accion (Doctors in Action) health-care team leaving for the West African country next month. It’s the second trip there for the Kamloopsbased organization. Peron said a team visited the country last year to do some reconnaissance, establish relationships and determine what would be best to do there. They found a hospital with equipment that didn’t work, frequent power outages, no control over sterility and staff struggling to cope with the poor conditions. While they were there, the first team also did about five-dozen operations. This year’s team will also be doing surgeries,

but the main goal is to help medical staff set up a surgical program of their own in Serekunda, the largest city in the smallest country in Africa. It was the group’s first trip to Africa. Most of its work in the past has been centred in Guatemala, but a surgeon who has spent time in Third World countries suggested the group consider Gambia. Team members pay their own way and will be using donations to buy surgical supplies. Most of the team is from Kamloops and members will be joined by some people who used to live in the Tournament Capital. When they leave, colleagues at RIH will be “picking up the slack so that, when we’re gone, it doesn’t impact the patients here,” Peron said. While the work they do will help others, Peron said it has a benefit for team members, as well. ‘”We bring back a sense of teamwork. “In a complex institutional setting [like

THEATRE

RIH], you get to just focusing on the people you’re working with at the time. “And, it makes you aware of what we really do have here.” The team leaves on Oct. 21 and is still accepting donations. Contact information is online at medicos-enaccion.com.

CELLPHONE COMMON SENSE IN SCOOTER Chuck McGillis chats on his mobile phone while stopped along the McArthur Island parkway. New to using a scooter, Chuck said that, with gas being so expensive, he finds it a great alternative — and he meets lots of nice people in the park. Dave Eagles/KTW

My name is Angela Veltri and my torrid love affair with Kix 4 Chix started in January 2008, after years of failed New Year’s Resolutions to work out more. I grew up in an Italian family and eating is in my blood. I love food and I’m not willing to give it up so I can fit into a pair of skinny jeans made by the Olson Twins. The alternative is to work my butt off. But, I needed something to match my energy and the gym was so boring and routine! I wanted something exciting and interesting that made me want to “work at” instead of “work- out.” My first day at Kix 4 Chix was the torrid part of this affair. How could something so simple such as punching and kicking make me want to throw up? I was sweating like I had come from the sauna, my face was redder than my hair and every muscle in my body was on fire — it was awesome! I had never felt so strong and in control of my body. Kickboxing requires all the muscles in your body to work together to create an unstoppable powerful energy, and it also keeps your mind sharp. My path to re-opening the Kix 4 Chix outlet in Kamloops has been long and sometimes very difficult. When Kix 4 Chix closed last November, a lot of women were angry. While my heart goes out to the women caught up in the aftermath, I am here to promise it all happened for a reason — to bring about change for the better, a positive, drama-free atmosphere where you can leave your day at the door and walk out a brand-new, energized and stress-relieved person. I genuinely love kickboxing and Nicole Neuert has created an amazing program guaranteed to kick your butt into shape while laughing your butt off! There is no other program like it and I welcome everyone to join me in celebrating the opening of the brand new-and-improved Kix 4 Chix studio on Tuesday September 6. Angela Veltri

THE HIGH LIFE Braden Derker, 15, is a high-flying track athlete whose star is on the rise. The South Kamloops secondary student won gold at the Legion Canadian Youth Track & Field Championships. Marty Hastings/KTW

By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER

sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

B

RADEN Derker is a soft-spoken individual who lets his athletic ability do the talking. The 15-year-old Kamloops Track and Field Club member won gold in high jump at the Legion Canadian Youth Track & Field Championships, an Athletics Canadasanctioned event that was held from Aug. 5 to Aug. 7 in Ottawa. “Braden is a very

good athlete,” said his coach, Lauren Jensen, who joined the local track club about three years ago. “We spent a lot of time this year working on technique and building up strength and speed.” The hard work paid off in Ottawa when Derker matched his personal best, jumping 1.85 metres to earn a first-place finish at nationals. “I didn’t really realize what happened until I was on the podium,” said Derker,

a South Kamloops secondary student. To get an idea how high Derker is soaring these days, picture six-foot-tall Vancouver Canucks forward Mayson Raymond standing upright — then picture the budding track star elevating his entire body over Raymond. Derker set his personal best in June at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships, where he won gold. He also won gold with a 1.80-metre leap

at the B.C. Athletics Championships Jamboree in July. Derker began focusing on high jump four years ago, when an injury suffered during a hurdles tumble left him with a lingering hip problem. Other track disciplines, such as shortand long-distance running, were too hard on the hip, so he began high-jump specific training. Jensen, who has a high-jump background, and her husband, Ryan, began

training with Derker about two-and-a-half years ago. “When I first coached him, you could tell he was an athlete, but his technique sucked,” said Jensen, who attended Calvin College, a Division III NCAA school in Michigan. “We’ve been able to work on that over the years.” Much of Derker’s training is aimed at developing speed and explosiveness, but without the use of weights, as to steer

clear of extra bulk. The rigorous workouts contrast greatly from the calm demeanour Derker tries to maintain when he approaches the bar. “I usually just take one thing from my last jump and try and correct it,” Derker said. “You can’t overthink it.” There is one challenge for Derker that all the hard work in the world cannot overcome — his height. He stands 5-foot-9, which is well under the average height of

a prototypical high jumper. “I was the shortest guy at nationals,” Derker said. “They were all over six feet.” Derker is entering Grade 10 at South Kam — he’s still young and he might keep growing. Even if he doesn’t sprout skyward in the coming years, Derker’s track and field future is a bright one, in Jensen’s eyes. “He’s not super tall yet, but he has a lot of potential,” she said.

Prince George wants to join BCFC The Chilliwack Huskers and Kamloops Broncos played a B.C. Football Conference pre-season game in Prince George in July, showcasing the league for possible expansion. By all accounts the game was a success, but PG Free Press sports editor Alistair McInnis says there’s work to be done to make a BCFC team feasible. Having a franchise in Prince George would boost the B.C. Football Conference. The league could use its existence in B.C.’s Northern Capital to attract more newcomers, expand its schedule and add new business partners. The support exists in the city. Attendance at the exhibition game wasn’t as high as it could have been (about 500, with organizers optimistical-

ly saying 700 or 800). But, it wasn’t a disappointing turnout either. A team of 50-plus chipped in to help run the event. It’s easy to rave about a one-day event, but bigger issues must be resolved if PG’s bid to land a BCFC expansion franchise is successful. The city’s geography is consistently the biggest hurdle it has to overcome in joining any major junior sports league and that hasn’t changed. Kamloops is the closest BCFC city at 525 clicks away — under normal driving conditions, that’s six hours on the road. The two current squads situated furthest apart, Victoria and Kelowna, are separated by 471 kilometres. Ferry and highway time combined, that’s a six-and-a-half hour

trip, minor compared to what would be an 11-hour, 863 kilometre trek from Victoria to Prince George (time and distance figures from the Ministry of Transportation distance calculator). Considering their relative isolation from southern B.C., PG residents pushing for a franchise understand the importance of accommodation arrangements. In a league in which overnight stays are rarely required, payment of hotel bills for visiting teams may have to come out of Prince George wallets. The business proposal they’re preparing to apply in October would have to outline accommodation arrangements and they’d have to be willing to offer a package appealing to the rest of the league. Perhaps only the

Broncos would be willing to avoid staying overnight. However, if the two Lower Mainland teams (the Huskers and Langley Rams) and the Kelowna-based Okanagan Sun are offered hotel arrangements for a night, it’s likely that Kamloops would follow suit. Gathering support from the Island may be hardest of all. Since ferries don’t travel overnight, the Nanaimo Raiders and Victoriabased Westshore Rebels could be looking at two nights of hotel accommodations on trips to Prince George. Organizers have stressed the need for an all-weather field in Prince George, something that may seem more realistic if they land a BCFC franchise. Prince George has about a month to put together its proposal.

In the meantime, they can gather feedback from the league on ways to strengthen their bid. The league will vote in January. Preparation is critical in processes like this. With a successful bid, the Prince George group plans to enter a team in the BCFC to start competing in 2013.

Pendrel claims gold in Switzerland Kamloops mountain biker Catharine Pendrel capped a sensation season on the weekend by winning the UCI Mountain Bike World Championships in Champery, Switzerland. The 31-year-old became the first Canadian woman to win the cross-country world championship since Alison Sydor performed the feat in 1996. The world championship left Pendrel entering the off-season celebrating her bestever mountain-bike season. In addition to the global crown she claimed on Saturday, Sept. 3, Pendrel this year chalked up three World Cup wins, two second-place finishes and an Olympic Test event victory, good enough for second on the UCI World Cup Tour.

IN HER OWN WORDS: Catharine Pendrel maintains a very informative blog at cpendrel.blogspot.com. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sample: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be happier with the way this race season has finished. World Champion. I will have to repeat that to myself many times and keep staring at my jersey and medal to make it feel real. This season I have matured as a racer. Having a competitor as strong and consistent in performance as Julie Bresset forced me to look at what I could change in my racing to come out on top. How do you win against an equal?â&#x20AC;?

Pendrel has been steadily climbing the world mountain-biking ranks, having finished fourth at the 2008 Olympic Summer

Games in Beijing. In Switzerland, Pendrel won the world title by finishing the 31.8-kilometre course in a time of 1:46:14.

Dylan Armstrong of Kamloops (see here throwing to a fourth-place finish at the 2008 Olympic Summer Games in Beijing) earned a silver medal in shot put at the IAAF world track and field championships on Friday, Sept. 2, in Daegu, South Korea. He threw 21.64 metres, a distance bettered only by Germany’s David Stori, who won gold with a throw of 21.78 metres. Stori beat Armstrong’s mark on his last throw. Armstrong made history by becoming the first Canadian to medal in the event at a world championship. At the Canadian Championships in June, Armstrong threw a Canadian-record 22.21 metres, which is still the longest throw in the world this year. Armstrong leads the Diamond League’s standings. If he can hold on to first place, he will win $40,000 and a diamond trophy worth about the same. He earned $40,000 for finishing second in Daegu. Ryan Remiorz photo

Broncos tame gridiron Colts The Kamloops Broncos defeated the Salmon Arm Colts 18-7 in weekend pee wee minor football action in the Tournament Capital. The win was the Broncos’ first of the season. Hunter Dairon scored a touchdown on a 57-yard run, while William Bogie and Callum Gorman also found the end zone following long receptions by Rorik Munson and Victor Church. Defensive standouts were Dairon and Jonathan Larocque, who made several tackles that led to yards lost for Salmon Arm. Tristan Hunt and Ripley Martin were also solid on defense. Meanwhile, the Kamloops Wildcats were edged 18-16 by the visiting Westbank Sun Devils in weekend pee wee play. Mattias Nelson, Nick Berry, Jimmy Gustason

An understanding that transcends language by Allison Gibbard SPECIAL TO KTW

editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

There is an ocean of difference between Kamloops and Cambodia — and it entails more than the mighty Pacific. However, as three Sahali secondary students discovered this year, there can be found a mutual understanding that transcends barriers, language and otherwise. The three Sabres — Rosemary Langford, Miles Marchand and Noah Marchand — joined retired teacher Trudie Bonbernard in a Developing World Connections (DWC) volunteer vacation. DWC is a sevenyear-old international charitable Canadian organization that arranges volunteer vacations in which travellers do more than sightsee. “Volunteering through Developing World Connections is an opportunity to connect with families and communities in a way that a traditional tourist does not,” said DWC founder and president Wayne McRann. The Sahali group travelled to the small town of Chamcar Bei, Cambodia in March, where it was paired with Ontario volunteers. There, the Canadian contingent spent two weeks constructing buildings and teaching English. “It’s been the best experience of my life” said Miles Marchand, noting he would recommend a DWC adventure for everyone.

While in Cambodia, the Sahali quartet helped build two houses, two latrines and a pair of community gardens. In addition to the physical labor, the Kamloops visitors also taught English at the Chamcar Bei community learning centre. While the days were long and work hard, Noah Marchand said the experience was, ultimately, satisfying. “I wouldn’t change anything because, looking back, it was all worth it and all part of the DWC experience.” All three Sahali students agreed DWC is a great way to connect with new people, whether it’s helping the locals or working alongside fellow volunteers. In fact, the Kamloops students remain in touch with many of the other students with whom they formed friendships. While the language barrier is a challenge, it is not insurmountable. “You get past it and there’s an understanding that doesn’t require language,” said Noah Marchand. Part of that understanding included the students teaching Cambodian children games as a way to get to connect with them. As a retired teacher, Bonbernard found the experience appealing because she knows the money she provided for the trip went toward a long-term solution and was not a quick fix. The Sahali quartet plans to continue to help make a difference

Whether it’s the colourful cartoon packaging, the fact it’s free or the interest in children’s activities, the Kids Map released this by Tourism Kamloops has been extremely popular. “Every day, we’re filling them twice a day,” said Tim Rodgers, general manager of the Best Western Plus Kamloops hotel. “They’re [guests] so hungry for information.” Sahali Mall manager Marg Archibald said regular maps of Kamloops have been

Archibald attributes the coupons as contributing to the publication’s success. “First of all, there’s ideas and, second of all, the means to make them a little more available,” Archibald said. “Some people come back for a second one because they want to go back to a place,” she said. “It’s a brilliant idea.” “I think next year, Tourism Kamloops will have to bump up how many are produced.” Kids Maps can be found at the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce visitor information centre across from Aberdeen Mall and at various businesses, hotels and motels.

Making music isn’t child’s play Hot Flyer FEATURES By Dale Bass

STAFF REPORTER

dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T’S FITTING AN INTERVIEW WITH EVAN LURIE IS FILLED WITH LAUGHTER. After all, this is the man who, along with Douglas Wieselman, composed songs for the children’s show The Backyardigans. The humour, however, isn’t based on strange child-creatures in bright colours who sing and dance. It’s based more on Lurie describing the process he and Wieselman had to work with as they created almost 400 songs. It was a job Lurie said he didn’t realize would be as intense as it became — after all, it’s just music for a kids’ show, right? — and, conversely, he’s pretty sure the producers didn’t expect what they got in the deal, either. “Thank you for not asking me how hard it is to write kids’ music,” Lurie said, “because it’s not kids’ music. It’s music.” That’s what fuelled the drive to create songs and background music that did more than just move the animation along. Each episode featured a different genre of music, so Lurie would research everything from the many forms of African music through to opera and balalaikas. The goal was not only to meet the needs of the show, but to do it in a way that would expose younger minds to music — and then hope it would stick with them “so that in 20 years, maybe they’ll have forgotten all the stuff on the radio and realize there is real music to listen to,” Lurie said. “Well, not all the stuff on the radio, but a lot of it.” With a background in scoring films and television shows, Lurie said he wasn’t prepared for the tight deadlines of Backyardigans. The music would be composed, demonstrated, approved, transcribed to paper, recorded, sent to children to sing for the soundtrack, shipped off to animation and choreography departments. The next week, it would begin again. “It was an enormous number of songs,” Lurie said, “and I didn’t realize this going in. “We got realer and realer as time went on but, after the first 20 shows of the season, we had to start on another season and we didn’t want to have songs that sounded like the first season.” “But, it was eight years of deadlines, of composing on cue — and then we were finished.” His songs are included in the stage show, The Backyardigans Quest for the Extra Ordinary Aliens, which comes to Sagebrush Theatre on Sept. 15 for shows at 3:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. There are a limited number of tickets still available for the evening show and more for the afternoon performance. Tickets are $33.50 plus service charges and taxes at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 1025 Lorne St., 250-374-5483, kamloopslive.ca. Now that the series has ended, Lurie said he’s not sure where his love of music will take him next. It’s taken him a long way from the time, as a teenager, he decided he could teach himself to play the trumpet. “That didn’t work out well.” He switched to piano, took lessons and eventually worked on films directed by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Roberto Benigni, Steve Buscemi and Stanley Tucci. While scoring for a film might seem less challenging than producing five new songs a week for a children’s show, Lurie said it was just different, no less difficult. “The great terror in movies, though,” he said with a laugh, “is the director telling you he plays guitar.”

The Backyardigans will continue their search for aliens at shows in Kamloops this month.

Fuelling up after reading Wouldn’t it be great if old newspapers and junk mail could be used to generate biofuel, instead of taking up space in landfills? Scientists at Tulane University in New Orleans have discovered a strain of bacteria capable of turning old newspaper into butanol. Better yet, the newly discovered bacteria is capable of doing so in the presence of oxygen, something other strains of cellulose-eating bacteria are not. To be precise, the bacteria is the first to convert the cellulose found in old newspapers directly into butanol, which can then be used to fuel vehicles or create a gasoline/butanol blend. Since the research is still in its infancy, we won’t be seeing any “brew-it-yourself” butanol kits on the market just yet. The bacteria was discovered in animal dung by Tulane researchers and named TU-103

in honour of the university. While any commercial applications are still years away, researchers felt there was enough promise in the technology to patent the particular strain of bacteria isolated. There are roughly 323 million tons of cellulosic materials discarded in the U.S. each year. How much butanol this would produce remains to be seen, since Tulane researchers weren’t quoting specific production numbers from the TU-103 bacteria. Compared to other biofuels, such as ethanol, butanol is more energy-dense and can be used to fuel existing cars and trucks without engine modifications. Still, automakers would be hesitant to approve butanol (or butanol blends) for use in their vehicles without a considerable amount of further research and testing. The Tulane research is hardly

California’s Orange County Sanitation District recently opened a tri-generation fuel cell and hydrogen energy station, and it uses sewage biogas to produce hydrogen (as well as heat and electricity). The hydrogen comes from recaptured methane gas, which is converted to hydrogen via a process developed by FuelCell Energy. The hydrogen then goes to a fuel cell, where electricity generated is used to power the facility. Leftover hydrogen is further purified to fuel-grade hydrogen, then sent to a hydrogen fueling station operated by partner company AirPower. There’s no shortage of methane gas, and researchers estimate that enough hydrogen could be produced from existing methanegenerating sources to fuel 200 million fuel cell vehicles.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Ensuring kids are ready as classes resume As students head back to school today, here are some tips to help them have a successful year and get the most out of their study time:

Parents of primary students: • Let your children see you read and set aside time each day for family reading. • Ask your children to read to you while you prepare a meal. • Get your children excited about reading by taking turns reading pages or acting out characters. • Talk to your children about what they read. Ask them questions that require them to read between the lines and think about what they have just read. This will help improve their reading comprehension. For some tips, check out this video at http://www. youtube.com/watch?v=9Wq FPWSBG18&feature=play

er_profilepage. • Introduce your children to a variety of literary genres and see which one they most enjoy. • Introduce your children to aboriginal culture and history through stories and other learning opportunities. • Help your children get a library card and take weekly trips with them to the library.

Parents of intermediate/middle school students: • Set up a daily homework routine. Designate a homework area away from distractions like the television and Internet, and with adequate lighting and supplies. • When it is time for your children to do their homework, reinforce strong study habits by also doing yours: Balance your chequebook, pay your bills or immerse

yourself in a book. • Let your children read comic books in their spare time because comics can encourage positive reading habits and can play a role in improving literacy. • Help your children identify difficult and easy homework tasks and get them to tackle the most difficult subjects first. • Make yourself available to answer questions and offer help, but do not do your children’s homework for them. • Ask your children questions and have them explain what they have just read or studied. • Encourage your children to write stories, poetry and songs. • Keep an assignment calendar on the fridge for quick reference of due dates, exams and how they fit with other activities.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Consider this the essential back to school do-not-do list You have purchased 16 coloured notebooks, a Disney lunchbox and a pair of â&#x20AC;&#x153;to-grow-intoâ&#x20AC;? running shoes. You have circled the date on your calendar and arranged day care, transportation and lunches.

You are doing everything you can to ensure your kids are as happy as you are about school starting again. Here are a few things that you might want to consider not doing as you get your children ready for back to school:

â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t try to pack everything the first day. Even if the list says they need pencils, pens, paper, markers, an eraser, highlighters and a calculator, nobody will call the school-supply police if your child doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have everything in their bag on

If your child is trying to play the â&#x20AC;&#x153;everybody else has it and I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;? card, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play too much into it. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let young children take unnecessary things to school. We can safely assume your child will not be

the first day. â&#x20AC;˘ Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m the only oneâ&#x20AC;? story. Do not forget that, contrary to what your children would have you believe, other parents also put limits on designer clothes, high-tech gadgets and lunch money.

BACK TO SCHOOL

Make this a pedestrian-friendly school year

A

S SCHOOL bells ring this week, more families will fill the streets across Canada as they walk and cycle their children back to school. Drivers should be aware and adjust their behaviour accordingly. Chloe, a grade 8 student, notes a common pedestrian danger: â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is one spot on the way to school where I have to listen and watch really closely before I can cross. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cars come around the bend so fast they wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be able to stop if I was halfway across. I think the littler kids have to be with a parent to cross safely.â&#x20AC;? According to Jacky Kennedy, director of Canada Walks at Green Communities Canada, the lead organization for the Canadian School Travel Planning initiative, greater numbers on the streets leads to greater safety. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When drivers see more children walking and cycling, their natural reaction is to slow down,â&#x20AC;? Kennedy said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The larger the group of children, the slower vehicles will travel. When our streets are sparse of walkers and cyclers, driving behaviour becomes more dangerous to the few who do walk. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need to learn to share the road with all users, especially children, who are most vulnerable to road dangers.â&#x20AC;? The great irony is that many of the cars that endanger walking children are actually carrying fellow students on the way to school in a family vehicle. The largest Canadian household survey concerning school transport, recently conducted by Green Communities Canada, found the car was the most common way children got to school nationally (43 per cent driven versus

34 per cent walking). Parents also reported several safety concerns about vehicles in the school zone, with observations such as: â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been close to being hit in the parking lot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers do not

stop at stop signs.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;˘ â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers do not respect the school zone areas or the cross walks.â&#x20AC;? However, more and more people are supporting a change in car culture across Canada and around the world.

steps to change carcentric road policies and school boards support those measures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Walking to school has been one of the greatest things that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done over the last couple of yearsâ&#x20AC;? said Bruce Krentz, a father

in Thompson, Man. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really some special time together and it also starts to get people out and get them moving â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it shows your kids that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s OK to walk, that you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always have to take a car to wherever you go.â&#x20AC;?

My 9 yr old son started going to Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts almost 6 months ago. He absolutely loves it! The instructors are so good with kids. Not only do they get great martial arts training, they get life lessons. The instructors reinforce attitude, respect and are so motivational. I think it’s great. I can honestly say that having my son join Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts has been the best experience.  It has helped him be less shy and more confident.  He is very proud of his achievements, it’s been a huge boost to his self-esteem. I know he will continue to train for many years to come. It is worth every penny and I highly recommend Master Viani’s Tiger Martial Arts.

Political intrigue at Gur Singh Invitational Mayor Peter Milobar, KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod and Interior Health Authority CEO Dr. Robert Halpenny will go tee to tee in a competition of accuracy at this year’s annual Gur Singh Invitational Charity Golf Tournament. Spearheaded by retired Kamloops neurosurgeon Dr. Gur Singh, the tournament raises funds to enhance services offered by the local Brain Injury Association. Money raised through the tournament will go directly to Kamloops residents living with the lasting effects of brain injuries, including family-support and skill-development programs. The tourney, one of the largest charity events in B.C., will be held at The Dunes on Friday, Sept. 9, with more than 200 golfers taking part and more than 150 sponsors signed up. Although all tee times are full, there remains room for sponsors to donate to the cause. For more information, go online to gursinghgolf.com, call 250-372-4856 or email gursingh@telus.net.

A&W helps raise a million for MS Society A&W and its customers raised more than $1 million in support of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada during A&W’s third-annual Cruisin’ for a Cause Day, held at the chain’s restaurants on Aug. 25. In total, the national fundraising event has raised more than $2 million during the past three years to help end MS. More than 730 A&W restaurants across Canada, including locations in Kamloops, helped raise funds through the sale of cutouts, customer contributions and donations of $1 from every Teen Burger. Supporters can still text “MS” to 45678

Take a Coffee Break for Alzheimer research

LOCAL NEWS until Sept. 30 to make a $5 donation to the Cruisin’ for a Cause campaign. Canada has one of the highest incidence rates of multiple sclerosis in the world, making research and support for people with MS and their families critical. Multiple sclerosis is the most common neurological disease of young adults in Canada and affects from 55,000 to 75,000 Canadians.

Do you know the “Gutsiest Canadian”? The Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada (CCFC) is once again searching for the “Gutsiest Canadians.” Canada has among the highest rates of Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis in the world. There are more than 200,000 Canadians affected by Crohn’s and colitis and there is a much larger network of caregivers, friends, family and members of the medical community whose lives are dedicated to these diseases and who deserve to be recognized. Seven outstanding Canadians will be honoured in the month of November as CCFC marks Crohn’s and Colitis Awareness Month 2011. Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis are two similar, yet distinct, conditions that affect the digestive system and cause intestinal tissue to become inflamed, form sores and bleed easily. There is no cure, no known cause and little public understanding of the pain and chronic suffering the condition creates. If you know someone who bravely faces inflammatory bowel disease and is making a difference in their community or in the lives of others, or if you know someone who deserves recognition for their support of an individ-

ual with IBD, you can nominate a member of the IBD community by completing the nomination form online at getgutsymonth.com. Entries will be accepted until Oct. 1. For more information about CCFC, go online to ccfc.ca.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is calling on local residents to take part in British Columbia’s largest Coffee Break on Sept. 15. The do-it-yourself event is the society’s nationwide fundraiser for local communities, which each year raises funds to support more

than 70,000 British Columbians living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Anyone can host a Coffee Break — friends, families or corporations — at home, at work or at a public venue, by exchanging a cup of coffee for a donation on behalf of the society. This year’s national goal is $1.5 million. For registration,

tips and information on how to get started with Coffee Break, go online to www.alzheimerbc.org/Get-Involved/ Coffee-Break.aspx. “The dementia crisis is now and it’s in our communities,” said Jean Blake, CEO for the Alzheimer Society of B.C. “We still don’t have a cure for the disease, but support, education

and information about what to expect on the dementia journey help families to develop the skills and confidence to live well and independently longer. “Our programs are increasingly vital. “We need community support and funds to keep them active.” An estimated 1.3 million Canadians will be affected by Alzheimers by 2038.

Suzuki cycle’s power not for every rider

E

NTER THE BEAST. There seemed to be something almost malevolent about the way the C190RT was waiting for me, hunkered down in its parking spot, as if the sheer mass of its weight was pushing it into the pavement. “Jeez Louise,” I muttered. I was giving up a sensible, all-purpose friendly V-Strom 650 for this? For this poster child of poseurism? For this retro-throwback of classic styling in heavyweight form, all attitude, all muscle, all mayhem? “Make sure you stand her up before you accelerate out of a corner,” Marcus from Suzuki advised, his finger tapping the throttle as we circled the bike. Oh, I’ll be careful all right, I thought, wincing at the memory of my introduction to the C109RT’s sibling, the M109R, a few years ago. When I pulled that M109R out of the driveway for my first ride, I was probably thinking those famous last words: “Let’s see what ROB BEINTEMA this baby can do.” First I quickly found myself hanging DRIVE on for dear life as my butt started sliding back, the laidback-seating pose not helping, slipping fingers only pulling the throttle open wider . The acceleration was astonishing. Anyone watching my aggressive takeoff might have thought, “Wow, that guy sure can ride,” but I still break into a sweat just thinking about how close that came to ending badly. The C109RT takes its model name from its engine displacement — 109 cubic inches. The brutally powerful 1,783-cc V-Twin (C1800RT in other metric markets) harnesses pistons with a 112-millimetre bore and 90.5-millimetre stroke, probably the fattest pistons in the industry. But, while the engine may throb with the classic V-Twin beat, it features high-tech modifications that include a dual spark plug per cylinder ignition system controlled by a 32-bit ECM for improved combustion efficiency and reduced exhaust emissions. A new idle-speed control system improves cold starting and stabilizes engine idle speed under any conditions. And, it is built for power. The M109R takes the “M” for Muscle Cruiser and, in its elemental performance form, traces its technological heritage to Suzuki’s championship-winning GSX-R supersport race bikes. As tested here, the C109RT (“C” for Classic) maintains the power punch while establishing a more traditional identity with wide body architecture, pullback handlebars, a studded seat with a relaxed riding position, comfortable floorboards, whitewall tires and slash-cut mufflers. Standard touring additions to the bike include the windshield, saddlebags, a passenger backrest, engine guards and a light bar. A linked front- and rear-disc brake system is also standard. The rider looks down on a simple tank-mounted analogue speedo with digital readouts for clock, odo, trip meters and even — thank you very much — a fuel gauge. X See THIS B16

big V-Twin into its chugging rhythm. The odometer read only four kilometres but Marcus assured me the engine had been benchrun. Even so, I left gingerly, treating that first ride as a shakedown cruise. Shakedown is the operative word. The big bike is a handful, shaking and shifting at speed or in any headwind, dancing across its highway lane like a hippo in high heels. This is a sledgehammer to the sportbike’s scalpel, its unaerodynamic dimensions bludgeoning the air rather than cutting through it. Add in the snarling chugging of the engine, the growl of the 2-into-1-into-2 stainless steel-chromed exhaust system, the hard thunk-

ing into gear of the five-speed transmission and the thumping of the bike’s half-ton girth across bumps and road seams, and you have all the over-the-top aggression any die-hard cruiser fan could wish for. I must admit, I found the bike a little imposing. On my first ride out after getting it home, I dropped it in the driveway. I’d made the mistake of being to timid with the clutch and throttle. Having a big bike is like owning a pit bull. It can be your best friend, your loyal companion and the one thing you look forward to coming home to. But, you have to let it know who’s boss. You have to be forceful, aggressive and confident. X See RIDER B17

Ford Harley F-150 ultimate style Rider needs to take control The 2012 Ford HarleyDavidson F-150 delivers on the custom, cool design the lineup has been known for, with new snakeskin-leather interior accents, a new stylized bodyside graphic and a new wheel and premium paint colour. Combine that with a standard 6.2-litre V8 engine and plenty of technology and it delivers power, capability and style like no other. The successful collaboration between Ford and HarleyDavidson has produced 10 F-150 models, as well as six Super Duty F-250 and F-350 models, and in 2009 the first HarleyDavidson F-450 edition truck. Ford has sold more than 70,000 Ford Harley-Davidson F-Series trucks since the brands teamed up in 1999. The exterior offers a bold front fascia and six-bar billetstyle bright chrome grille. It boasts Harley-Davidson bright chrome badging. The truck also has a lowered appearance with a standard, fully integrated deployable running board. Also standard are new 22-inch

Interior trim panels are covered in high-gloss tuxedo black paint, while the console lid and upper steering wheel carry the snakeskin leather.

Premium snakeskin leathertrimmed seats come with accent color inserts and unique cloisonne badge.

So, after refreshing my Jerry the Motorman skills in a nearby parking lot and re-establishing my dominance, I started to relax into the ride — and the bike was better behaved. It didn’t take long to feel more comfortable on the ride and the touring package certainly adds some long-haul utility. My combined fuel efficiency rating was 5.7L/100km for a range of over 300 kilometres per tank. This motorcycle wouldn’t be every rider’s cup of tea and it’s probably not mine. But, there are those riders who like rising to the challenge, who can’t resist the “mine is bigger than yours” comparisons

and who would just love the idea of a big touring cruiser that can stand on its own in spec show-

downs against any of the competition. Nothing succeeds like excess, so they say.

DICKERT Métis son, Terrance Dickert passed away, August 21, 2011 at the age of 61 in Coquitlam, BC. Beloved Son of Mother, Katie Ann Ferguson b. 5 Apr 1924 d.18 Mar 1996 and Father, Reginald Beverly Dickert b, 11 Oct 1923 d. 28 Oct 1963.

In Loving Memory of LYLE NELSON June 19, 1920 - Sept 7, 2001

By Joanetta Hendel, Indianapolis, Indiana

Terry’s roots ran deep in the Northwest. He was a direct descendant of Fur Trader, Peter Skene Ogden & daughter of a Great Flathead Indian Chief, Julia Rivet, Kamloops Pioneer, Charles Thomas Cooney & Elizabeth Allard and Cattle King, Johnny Wilson & Mary Anne of the Lillooet Tribe. He was a very sweet man; father, fly fisherman and hunter, made great Yorkshire Pudding, and deeply loved by many. Even better, Terry loved us back. We are deeply saddened we will never know his big hugs, quiet laughter, and sardonic humour or watch him casting his line into Tunkwa Lake again. He gave the best of himself. Terry was truly loved and will sadly be missed by his family including his brother and sister of another mother, cousins Mark & Linda Ferguson, Mark’s wife Glenda and Uncle Dave Ferguson. He is survived by his sister, Diane Dickert, niece, Farah Walker, brother Leigh Dickert, nephew, Donovan Dickert, his beautiful sons, Andrew, Christopher and Timothy, and of course his awesome granddaughter Taya and baby, Emory, children of Andrew and Tracy Dickert. His loyal family at Vancouver General Hospital, Biomedical Engineering, where Terry worked for 25+ years deeply mourns his loss.

Mourn anniversaries never marked,

Hold up my trembling hand.

A future I cannot keep.

They comfort me in the blind despair

They gently kiss the pain away,

I cannot understand.

And love my heart to sleep.

And we still miss you so today

They suffer with me when I hurt,

The ones who’ve gone before me

Weep with me in my pain,

Hold me in my dreams.

Remind me that we are not lost ...

They gently stroke my furrowed brow,

Though I must now remain.

And calm my silent screams.

Those who’ve gone before me,

They love me in my heartache,

Hear me when I cry.

Wait quietly nearby.,

Sing softly with me soothing chords

Hold patiently, one to another

Of unsung lullabies.

Till I join them by and by.

We know you are in a better place But do wish we could see your face Every day in some small way Memories of you come our way We all miss your loving and caring Along with your gift for giving and sharing Your life was a blessing You are still loved beyond words

Terry’s ashes will join his grandmother, Winifred Cooney, his mother, Katie Ann Ferguson and many other relatives at Tunkwa Lake cabin, which has been in the family since the 20s.

Love and miss you dearly Dad

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

Others who have gone before

Ten years ago you went away

Terry was highly respected by his colleagues where his knowledge and amiable personality made him an exceptional mentor to many and liked by all. His memory will live on within the hospital community as he touched so many people in a positive way. The entire Ferguson/Cooney clan mourns his passing.

Rest Peacefully Brother

Others Who Have Gone Before

Your memory a treasure And missed beyond measure

Mom, Barb, Fred, Becky, Ronda and families 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.
