Ajax foes want more test blasts By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
ROY BARON SEPT. 19, 1942 - FEB. 6, 2013
A life lived to the fullest By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
HE BIG, BURLY MOUNTIE COULD face down a criminal – but needed his cab-driver buddy to ask out the pretty nurse he would see each day as she walked to work. Forty-nine years later, that nurse was there when her Mountie looked into the eyes of each member of his family and peacefully passed away. Between those two moments was a life lived to the fullest by Roy Baron, with his wife, Joyce, right by his side. Joyce didn’t even pause to consider it before accepting the date request relayed through the cabbie. After all, she’d seen the six-foot-three-inch officer when she had walked by the barracks in Oliver and had been interested since the first time she looked at him. Roy was 21 when they wed. Joyce was 22. Roy’s job took them from Oliver to Prince
George to Vancouver and, finally, to Kamloops, where Roy decided it was time for a career change and left the force to start the next stage of his life as a businessman. First came the Inlander Pub in Valleyview — just west of its location today in Falcon Plaza. Next came Duffy’s Pub in Dufferin — hence the name — and, while they still owned it, Roy started up Jack Daniel’s downtown. The name didn’t last long as the Lynchburg, Tenn. distillery took exception and had its lawyers send a letter relaying that message. Cactus Jack’s Saloon was then born and the nightclub at Fifth Avenue and Lansdowne Street is where stories of Roy Baron’s life will be told on Saturday, Feb. 16, during a 7 p.m. memorial service. ◆ See MEMORIES A21
Kamloops’ antiAjax activists are calling on the proponents of the proposed copper and gold mine to conduct more test blasting, calling previous efforts “totally inadequate” at predicting the effects of the project on the community. However, the author of a study the Kamloops Area Preservation Association (KAPA) is using to back up its demand said there is no need for more blasts. “I do not see the need for more testing. It really will not provide any more information,” Dr. Takis Katsabanis, an associate professor of mining engineering at Queen’s University, told KTW via email. KAPA spokesman John Schleiermacher said previous blast tests, conducted in February 2011, weren’t representative of what Kamloopsians living closest to the mine would have to live with on a daily basis. “They did it in the middle of the week, in the middle of the winter, when nobody was around to have a
full assessment of what the impact of that blast was,” he said. KAPA was able to obtain a copy of the Ajax blasting report from the provincial Environmental Assessment Office (EAO). Schleiermacher said it shows the test blast was only a fraction of the size of the blasts that will occur at the site. He said KGHM Ajax needs to conduct larger blasts that will model “extreme” work done at the Ajax site south of Aberdeen. He said the company also needs to give the community notice that blasting will occur so people can judge the effects for themselves. Schleiermacher cited Katsabanis’ report, produced for the Canadian Explosives Research Laboratory (CERL) at the request of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency, which he said showed the need for more blasting tests. “Our experts have identified many inadequacies of this test blast,” Schliermacher said. “So, the EAO is basically going to allow an inadequate test blast.”
But, Katsabanis said his report actually concludes the opposite — that the experiments KGHM Ajax has done provide enough information to predict the effects of other blasting at other locations around the site. CERL, which did its own review of the blasting data, reached the same conclusion. “Basing decisions on a single, larger production test blast would serve little purpose,” wrote Bert von Rosen, head of the laboratory’s explosion effects group, in a letter posted on the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office website. Von Rosen said the computer modelling KGHM Ajax plans to do with its test data “is a credible means of establishing potential hazards to the local community.” Norm Thompson, community relations manager for KGHM Ajax, said more test blasts could still happen. “We haven’t ruled out anything at this point. “We still need to understand the geological makeup of the whole site, and we’re still trying to determine that,” he said.

Concern over no docs in early hours By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When Shelley Ross was a practising doctor, she knew one thing to be true — babies don’t check the clock to see what time it is when they decide to arrive into the world. It’s one of the reasons why the president of the B.C. Medical Association (BCMA) is concerned about a plan by the Interior Health Authority to remove doctor availability between 3 a.m. and 5 a.m. The decision doesn’t impact all medical provision, just service provided under the Medical On-Call Availability Program (MOCAP), a provincial plan designed to meet the needs of new or unassigned patients needing emergency care that is provided through an on-call rotation. Kelly Murphy, IHA’s corporate director for medical affairs and clinical network, said the program pays doctors on-call even if their services aren’t required. Removing that coverage for the two hours, a time-frame experience has shown to be the slowest, is one way to save money, Murphy said, and help ensure the susatinability of the program. The program is being reviewed by the BCMA and the provincial
government, but that study won’t be completed until the fall, Murphy said, and existing program contracts with doctors expire at the end of March. Ross said her organization is asking its doctors in the IHA region to not sign new contracts until the change is thoroughly reviewed and discussed. A letter sent to IHA doctors said the move “is a unilateral change on behalf of the IHA. Neither the BCMA nor the Joint Standing Committee on Rural Issues [which is reviewing MOCAP] was consulted in advance.” Murphy said any doctor who has to treat a new or unassigned patient during the two-hour period will still be paid, but there will no longer be a blanket payment to doctors to simply be ready to answer the phone during that period. That is an issue to which Ross takes particular exception, saying patients deserve round-the-clock care and the IHA is counting on doctors picking up the phone during that twohour period, even though they won’t be paid to even listen for it to ring then. Ross couldn’t speculate on how long it would take to review the change, noting she suspects it will have to be referred to the MOCAPreview committee.
$11-million winner Mitchell Shuter, a 50-year-old Merritt resident, matched all six numbers in the Feb. 6 Lotto 6/49 draw to win the $11.07-million jackpot. He bought the ticket was purchased at the Courtesy Corner Store.

MP McLeod welcomes proposed changes to act By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
Proposed changes to laws governing people found not criminally responsible of committing serious offences, including murder, is being welcomed by Kamloopsâ€™ MP. â€œIt is a really important piece of legislation on public safety,â€? said Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod of the Not Criminally Responsible Reform Act â€” legislation welcomed by B.C. Attorney General Shirley Bond. Among the crimes that prompted the federal governmentâ€™s action was the case of Darcie Clarke of Merritt, whose three children were murdered by her former husband, Allan Schoenborn. The courts found Schoenborn not criminally responsible, which put him into a system in which he could be given access to the outside world without Clarke or any other person affected by the murders being advised of the decision. McLeod said thatâ€™s an important part of the proposal that is not getting as much attention as the creation of a new high-risk category for those deemed not criminally responsible, a designation that will see their opportunity for a review of their case changed from annually to every three years. McLeod noted the existing law led to the possible release of Schoenborn in 2011 on day passes in the same community where Clarke lived â€” Port Coquitlam. Schoenbornâ€™s pass allowance was later revoked after a public uproar. McLeod said the need to advise family of any impending release under any conditions is also a valuable change that will avoid putting people already affected by a crime from being revictimized. Prime Minister Stephen Harper chose Burnaby to announce the new legislation, a city not far from where Schoenborn is scheduled to attend a hearing this week to determine if he should be allowed out of the psychiatric hospital where he is not detained for any set time. Harper also met with Clarke to talk about the changes. Bond issued a statement thanking the federal government for safeguarding families that have been affected by horrific crimes and expressed a hope the new law will be in place soon. McLeod couldnâ€™t speculate on a timeline, noting the legislation must first be debated in the House of Commons.

City caterers applaud changes to liquor rules By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
As if a mother of the bride doesnâ€™t have enough to worry about, she has had to get a Serving It Right certificate to put on a bar at the wedding reception. Thatâ€™s why a planned change to the provinceâ€™s liquor rules to allow caterers to have liquor licences is welcome, said Shawn Harnett of At Your Service Catering. The certification is needed now to obtain a licence and with that came liability to the mom or whomever was the official person handling the bar â€” even if theyâ€™re not actually staffing it. â€œWe should be liable because weâ€™re the ones serving,â€? Harnett said. The new rules, introduced last week by Energy Minister Rich Coleman â€” who also oversees liquor legislation â€” are designed to help the catering industry and boost the provinceâ€™s tourism appeal. The changes will also apply to restaurants, hotels and conference centres when liquor is served at catered events outside their
establishments. Donovan Cavers of Conscientious Catering said he welcomes the changes â€” â€œa great part of the election goodie bag the Liberals haveâ€? â€” because he has also dealt with clients who have had to do all the steps to provide a bar at an event he caters. â€œItâ€™s going to make life a lot easier,â€? Cavers said. Judy Basso, who runs her own event and decor company in the city, agreed. â€œIt will be so much easier for the client,â€? Basso said. â€œThere really was no good reason to have had it that way.â€? She also encouraged her clients to get temporary insurance to cover any potential liability. With the change, the liability falls under the caterersâ€™ insurance policies. Years ago, Basso said, caterers and similar establishments were allowed to have liquor licences but the rules were changed. There has been a strong advocacy group lobbying the government in recent years to change things back, she said.

Killer has day parole extended By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
A 26-year-old Kamloops man who stabbed a romantic rival to death in an Aberdeen gas station seven years ago has had his dayparole extended by justice officials. Stephen Patrick Roe was convicted of manslaughter in for the 2006 slaying of David Holditch. On Feb. 21, 2006, Roe armed himself with an eight-inch hunting knife and set off for the Aberdeen Esso after coming across a series of flirtatious Internet messages between his girlfriend, Kyla Regnier, and Holditch, who worked at the gas station on Rogers Way. Roe attacked Holditch — Regnier’s ex-boyfriend — and stabbed him six times, including once in the
heart. The 18-year-old died on the floor of the Esso convenience store. Convicted of second-degree murder in 2007, Roe successfully appealed and was granted a new trial. He was found guilty of the lesser charge of manslaughter in January 2010. Following that conviction, Roe was handed a sentence of nine years in federal prison. With credit for time served, the sentence worked out to just shy of six years. Roe was granted day parole in August 2012. The term covered six months and was renewed on Jan. 29, according to documents obtained by KTW. The Parole Board of Canada (PBC) noted in its decision to renew Roe’s day-parole term that he has no other criminal history and
that Holditch’s death has been his only contact with the criminaljustice system. The PBC has previously expressed concerns about Roe’s conduct while in custody, including two violent incidents. First, the PBC states, while on remand in a provincial jail, Roe was involved “with several other inmates in an assault against another offender.” Later, in federal custody, the PBC states, Roe took part in a “major incident” involving cells being set on fire. He is also alleged to have been in possession of a “spear-like weapon” at the time of the incident. In 2011, investigators found a homemade computer in Roe’s cell. It was determined he had assembled the computer while on bail
and had it shipped to the prison. The computer had Internet capabilities, according to the PBC, and Roe used it to access email and download pornography. That discovery resulted in Roe spending two months in segregation. A psychological assessment earlier this year pegged Roe as a “low to moderate” risk to re-offend. Conditions of Roe’s release include orders he not leave the country, not possess any weapons and notify parole officers about any change in work, education or any relationships. He will also be bound by special conditions named in the document, including following “psychological counselling . . . to address your personal/

They do not want any contact with you.” Roe will be living in a halfway house, but the document does not say in what community the residence is located. He has been working since being granted day parole last summer. His sentence will not end until 2015.

Ladies and gentlemen, introducing Sen. Dale Bass
O: PRIME MINISTER Stephen Harper From: Dale Bass re: Senate appointment Dear Prime Minister; Please consider my application for a seat in the Senate. I’m pretty sure you will have one or two come up very soon. There are many reasons why I am applying and why I feel I would be a perfect senator. First of all, I wouldn’t cause any of those pesky problems Pamela Wallin, Mike Duffy or Mac Harb have caused you. I live in Kamloops, B.C., and can prove it with my driver’s licence, health-care card and library card. I used to have an Ontario healthcare card, just like P.E.I. Sen. Duffy has, but that was when I really lived in Ontario. I don’t live there anymore — after all, you have to live in a province to qualify for its health-care system. My travel expenses have been fairly controlled. I do fly back to Ontario once a year to visit some of the kids and grandkids and, if you need this on a travel-expense report, I can confirm I have spent more than the $90 Wallin has claimed flying to her “home” in Saskatchewan. Just how is she getting home when the Senate isn’t sitting? Hitchhiking? A one-way ticket from Ottawa to Saskatoon is $376 right now on WestJet and more than $500 on Air Canada. Almost makes me think she really doesn’t go home very often. I can show property-tax receipts with my name on them showing I
DALE BASS Street
LEVEL live in B.C. I bet Patrick Brazeau can’t do that — after all, he claims his main residence is his dad’s house in Quebec. Really? A 39-year-old man who still lives at home? And you want him in the Senate? Speaking of which, I’ve never boxed before, so you wouldn’t have to worry about me sullying the image of the Senate getting into the ring with that Liberal wannabe-leader-in-training Justin Trudeau. As for causing headlines by having the police show up at my door? Not gonna happen. I’m very careful when it comes to the RCMP in town because I’ve written some things about them that they haven’t really liked all that much. That hasn’t stopped me from still talking with them, so you wouldn’t have to worry that my issues might lead me to do something stupid — like hightail it out a kitchen door to avoid the media. And I’ve been a reporter long enough to know it’s really not smart to insult them by doing something stupid like answering their questions by tell-
ing them to behave like adults. Kinda funny coming from a former journalist who made his first mark as a senator by telling a crude joke worthy of a testosterone-driven teenager about the premier of Newfoundland and Labrador. Now, time for the truth. The real reason I want a seat on the senate is I could really use the $132,300 salary. It’s way more than I make now — I think it’s more than most people I know in Kamloops actually make — and I like the idea that I’d only have to show up in Ottawa once a year to keep my job. The office staff senators get would really work with this plan because my secretary could just email me if something important was to come up and really — and I mean it better really — need my attention. Heck, I could move to Mexico. Nah, that’s already happened and, boy, those headlines were embarrassing, weren’t they? Anyhow, back to the application. Here’s the best part. If you give me the job and only want to see me once a year, I could stay here in Kamloops and spend my days doing all the cool things I’ve always wanted to do. I’m developing quite the list of neat stuff to do and not having to worry about a pesky paycheque requirement would just make it so much easier. Sure, I’d pop up for photo-ops when required, but the beauty of it would be that you’d know that I’m really living where I say I live. I’d send you the photos to prove it. firstname.lastname@example.org
It took a cultural shift to battle drinking and driving, so perhaps it’s time to make another shift so fewer pedestrians die in our streets. As with drunk driving, we can do that by changing laws, attitudes and public perception. Tougher laws and costly penalties made it unacceptable to drink and drive. Groups such as Mothers Against Drunk Driving got behind the campaigns, and programs such as Operation Red Nose made it easier for people to make the right choice during the holidays. Corporations launched campaigns to make it cool to be the designated driver and drivers — thus educated and forewarned — changed their behaviour. It may take similar efforts to reduce the number of pedestrian fatalities, which last year totalled 63, according to the BC Coroner’s Service. That’s almost the same number of people who were killed by drunk drivers last year, yet where’s the outcry? The sad fact is it’s walking seniors, 70 years and older, who most often die in a collision with a car. Where do most of these fatalities occur? At intersections and marked crosswalks. When? In December and January, when it’s dark earlier. In fact, people of all ages are at greatest risk during this province’s gloomiest months. Pedestrians need to understand there are no safe intersections or crosswalks. Adults must apply the same safety rules they teach their kids: Be aware of your surroundings, look both ways, make eye contact with drivers. And, sorry seniors, old age is not an exemption from the crucial lessons we direct at our youth. But, it doesn’t stop there. Driver education must be enhanced, laws must be toughened and outerwear must be reflective or, at the very least, lighter in colour. Pedestrian fatalities aren’t any less serious than drunk driving deaths. So, why are they treated that way?

Allow for three dogs Editor: I have been following the three-dog issue and decided it was time for a response. With respect to people registering their third dog, only to find they can’t. If city council thinks these people didn’t realize the limit and got rid of the third dog, city council would be wrong. I have lived in several neighbourhoods in Kamloops with people who have three dogs. There have not been problems with any of those households. City council is missing the point that people can move from other places where three dogs are allowed, only to find themselves in a position where they are allowed only two. They end up not licensing any of their dogs. This isn’t the solution, either. People who have encountered “problem” neighbours are the most vocal here. I think most people would agree the problem lies with dog owners. There are bylaws in place for dogs excessively that bark and that wander around neighbourhoods. That isn’t acceptable, whether it is one dog or three dogs. The bylaw needs to be changed to allow for three dogs, with the third dog costing more to licence. Hopefully, with the excess revenue dog licenses bring in, we can have more enforcement of bylaw officers. Brandy Barnes Kamloops
MP McLeod must know the abortion issue is not settled Editor: Re: (‘McLeod does not support fellow PMs’ abortion probe,’ Feb. 5): The issue of the MPs’ letter referred to is not about abortion, but about the fact babies were alive and left to die, sometimes struggling for hours. Once they are born, they are human beings under the law and must be respected and treated with all appropriate medical treatment; otherwise, it is infanticide and an indictable offense under sections 223, 233, 238 of the Criminal Code of Canada. McLeod was quoted as saying the government has to “stay focused” on its economic agenda.
In order to have a robust economy, we need to have a growing population. As a member of the Canadian public, I can tell McLeod the issue of abortion is not settled. We have lost over three-million citizens and all their future generations with all their talents. And we have used countless millions of health-care dollars to pay for this “choice” at the cost of real health care. We also expect our government to uphold the laws of our country. Ann Devlin Kamloops
Rights of nature above human life? Editor: In the Feb. 5 edition of Kamloops This Week, the cover story touched on the abortion debate (‘McLeod does not support fellow PMs’ abortion probe’). Flip a few pages in and we have a letter to the editor from Sandi Mikuse (‘Embracing Mother Nature’) referencing (and agreeing with) a David Suzuki article in the Globe and Mail about granting Mother Nature “the
constitutional right to exist and flourish.” Now, I have to ask: Am I the only one who finds it disgusting and pathetic that we, as a society, appear to be more eager to grant constitutional rights to trees, animals and rivers and not to a human being inside the womb?
Editor: The Kamloops Hospice Association would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved in the Celebrate A Life event held in December and their part in making it a huge success. Special thanks goes to Sahali Centre Mall manager and owners, mall merchants, the Kamloops community who attended the event and the support of the Kamloops media. The Kamloops Hospice Association managed to beat expectations and raise valuable funds for the ongoing operations of the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice House. The Kamloops Hospice Association also extends a big thank you to the countless hours volunteers spent preparing and attending this event. Without them, Celebrate A Life would not be possible. Celebrate A Life is an annual event for the Kamloops community to remember deceased relatives and friends during the holidays, while raising awareness and funding for the ongoing operations of the Kamloops Hospice Association.

Stone, Friedman respond to calls from independent MLAs By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
Candiates for MLA in Kamloops-South Thompson say they’re interested in a pitch by B.C.’s independent MLAs to make the legislature more accountable — but after the May 14 provincial election. Cariboo North MLA Bob Simpson, Delta South MLA Vicki Huntington and Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen are calling for a slate of reforms to party financing and measures to give backbench MLAs more clout. Among their suggestions: Move B.C.’s fixed elections from spring to fall so voters have more time to evaluate the government’s spring budget, have Elections B.C. supervise party
leadership races and put a ban on corporate, union and out-of-province donations. With the current legislative session running for just 19 days, Kamloops-South Thompson Liberal candidate Todd Stone thinks there isn’t enough time to seriously discuss any of it. “I don’t think practically speaking there’s time to act on any of these, but I certainly think we should discuss and debate them in the election campaign and make sure we understand where British Columbians are at on them,” he said. Stone said he thinks a fall election is “entirely reasonable” and won’t leave voters with a sense governments are playing election games with their spring budgets. But, he said all
parties would need to be on board to make it happen. Tom Friedman, the NDP candidate in Kamloops-South Thompson, said he hasn’t given much thought to changing the election date, but expects his party would review the idea if it forms the next government. “I think whatever works best in the interest of British Columbians as a whole is going to probably be the way we go,” he said. Friedman said the NDP already supports a ban on corporate and union donations, a position he shares. “I expect it’s something that might be part of the political platform when it comes out,” he said. Stone said he thinks campaign-finance
reform is worth examining, but only after an “open, frank discussion” with voters about reforms. “I’ll be honest and say that this issue has not come up once on the doorstep,” he said. “I’ve knocked on hundreds upon hundreds of doors, I’ve met at least 2,000 or 3,000 people since August and not once has the issue of campaign finance reform been raised. “People are asking about jobs.” Stone said he does have his own plan for increasing transparency if he is elected MLA. While MLAs are only required to disclose the amount of money they spend on travel, Stone said he plans to post much more detail on his expenses. “In practical terms,

what people really have a right to see, in my opinion, is the specific expenditures that make up those travel totals,” he said.

TRU looking for input on university village plan Thompson Rivers University is considering a development plan at the campus to create a university village and is looking for input on how the vision should proceed. The first of three public discussions will be held today (Feb. 14) from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Mountain Room of the Campus Activity Centre. The discussion came during consultations to update the campus plan and is described as a move to enhance campus life and add vibrancy at the site for anyone who visits. Similar village concepts exist at Simon Fraser University and the University of British Columbia, including market-based residential housing, student residences, retail shops, restaurants, professional offices and an assembly space for students.

The imperial papacy will continue
T’S THE ROMAN Catholic Church, not the Republican Catholic Church or the People’s Revolutionary Socialist Democratic Catholic Church. Its rigid hierarchy and its centralizing instincts are due almost entirely to the fact it became the state religion of the Roman Empire more than 1,600 years ago. The pope is still, in essence, the emperor. How Roman are the traditions and instincts of the church that Pope Benedict XVI has led for the past seven years? Well, one of his titles is “pontifex maximus,” usually translated from the Latin as “supreme pontiff.” That was the title of the high priest of the old Roman (pagan) state religion under the Republic.
GWYNNE DYER World WATCH When Rome became an empire, the emperors took it over, starting with Augustus. Somewhere in the fifth or sixth century — the timing is not clear — the title was transferred to the Christian bishop of Rome, who had become the head of the new state religion of Christianity. This is not to say popes are secretly pagans: they are monotheists to the core. (The answer to the rhetorical question, “Is the Pope a Catholic?” is “Yes”.)
But, they are Roman Catholics and the religion they lead is still run like an empire. Very occasionally some maverick pope tries to change the model, but the system always wins in the end. Benedict XVI was the emperor of a shrinking domain, for the Catholic Church has been shedding adherents not only in the West, where it is everywhere in steep decline, but also in the Latin American, African and Asian countries where it once held unchallenged sway. While secularism is the enemy that steals the faithful in the West, evangelical forms of Christianity are seducing Catholic believers away in what we used to call the Third World. There are many who blame this hemorrhage on the outgoing pope (the first time anybody
has ever used that phrase about a pope, for they normally die in office, like the emperors did). Benedict was chosen by his colleagues because they believed he would fight off fundamental change — and he performed his duty well. His resignation for health reasons is an innovation, but it is the first of which he has been guilty. He held the line on abortion (a sin in almost all circumstances), homosexuality (likewise, unless the person remains entirely celibate), married or female priests (definitely not), re-marriage after divorce (ditto) and contraception (under no circumstances, though he later said HIV-positive prostitutes might be justified in asking their clients to use condoms). It may seem weird
that all of these major controversies are about sexuality or gender, but that’s not actually the Catholic Church’s fault. It’s equally inflexible in defending the doctrines of the Virgin Birth, the Triune God and Papal Infallibility. It’s just that far more Catholics care about doctrines that affect their daily lives than about theological dogmas that have little practical effect. What the Catholic Church is really fighting is modernization, which it sees as moral decline. Perhaps it is right (though I don’t think so), but it is losing the battle. Yet Benedict XVI and the Church hierarchy are condemned to fight this battle until the last ditch because they believe, probably correctly, that full modernization would make them irrelevant.
So, there’s no point in going on about how Pope Benedict XVI (or will we go back to calling him Cardinal Ratzinger after the end of this month?) failed to modernize the Church. He wasn’t hired to do that. The only pope who did try was John XXIII and he died 50 years ago. Every pope since then (including the charismatic, but deeply conservative, John Paul II) has seen his task as being to stem the tide of change and restore the old order. The job was largely complete even before Benedict became pope seven years ago. His job has merely been to ensure there is no backsliding into liberalism, relativism and other modernist errors — and he has achieved that by ensuring almost the entire College of
Cardinals (the men who choose the next pope) are reliably conservative and orthodox. The college had already been stuffed with conservative cardinals by his predecessor, John Paul II, so even there he really didn’t have to do much except steer the same steady course. Not a single one of the cardinals who are seen as “papabili” (men who might be elected as pope) could be described as liberal or reformist. There will be a new pope, but nothing is going to change. The hemorrhage will continue.

Valentine’s Day February 14, 2013 GET INKED FOR THE ANIMALS What hurts more — getting inked up or being struck by the arrow of a flying cherub? It’s tough to say, but a downtown Kamloops tattoo parlour is getting in on the Valentine’s Day spirit with a unique Valentine’s Day offer. “Any tattoos that are done that day, half of the proceeds will be given to the SPCA,” said Denise Leigh, co-owner and manager of Sakred Skin, located at 320 Victoria St. There’s one catch: The ink job has to be lovey-dovey in some way. Leigh used the examples of a heart, the name of a significant other or a couple’s matching tattoos. “Some people might want to just be spontaneous and come in — a spur-of-themoment-type thing,” she said. Here, Leigh gets stenciled with sharpies by tattoo artist Cye Delaney. Dave Eagles/KTW

No need to be lonely on lover’s day Valentine’s Day can conjure up feelings of loneliness for those without a mate. But, being alone is cheaper, easier and probably better than going out on some random date, or being with a person you’ve been meaning to break up with for months. If you don’t have a date, don’t stay at home and pout. Here are some ideas to help you celebrate the day of love: 1. Plan well in advance to do something that will not place you in the path of cooing couples. Even if you usually like dining out alone, do something else on Valentine’s Day. 2. Resist the temptation to turn off your phone and crawl into bed early. Book a deep-tissue massage at a fantastic spa, followed by a manicure and pedicure. Host a fondue party or a potluck at your house or grab a few single friends and book a sightseeing flight over your city. 3. Do you know a couple with children who never go out because they just don’t feel they can afford a babysitter? Offer them a free night of babysitting and let them enjoy a romantic night out. 4. Nothing spreads the love faster than doing a little volunteer work. Take time to remember your good fortune and learn about how you can help improve the lives of children living in poverty through
a non-profit organization like Christian Children’s Fund of Canada (ccfcanada.ca). 5. If you are single, but would rather not be, think about what is standing in the way of you and a new relationship. Find ways to work on becoming the person your dream partner would fall in love with. Start therapy. Take up yoga. Take action to change the world. It is into the fullest lives that love is most likely to fall. newscanada.com

Valentineâ€™s Day can be kidsâ€™ stuff K
IDS LOVE VALENTINEâ€™S DAY. And whatâ€™s not to love? Most classrooms allow children to exchange colourful cards or different sweets. Some teachers even set aside time for a party during class time. This year during the Valentineâ€™s season, try taking time to teach your child while participating in all the fun. Here are a few ways you can make your childâ€™s Valentineâ€™s Day more memorable: r.BLFDBSETBTBGBNJMZ5IFSF are many quick and easy crafts kids can do to make a special card for family and friends. Grab construction paper, stamps, stickers, markers â€” pretty much anything you already have laying around the house â€” and let your little oneâ€™s creativity flow. Not only will this give them an activity to keep them busy, it will give them a chance to feel a sense of accomplishment.
r(JWFZPVSDIJMEUIFPQQPSUVOJty to show compassion to another child: Valentineâ€™s Day is the perfect chance to teach your child love for others, especially for those less fortunate than themselves. By logging on to charitable websites such as ccfcanada.ca, you can browse the online gift catalogue and help your child send chickens, a food basket or even a school uniform to another child suffering in extreme poverty in a developing country. It will be something different that allows kids to think of and feel compassion for others. r#BLF7BMFOUJOFTUSFBUTGPS your childâ€™s class: Kids love helping out in the kitchen, whether itâ€™s mixing cookies or decorating premade sugar cookies. Allow your child to help out in the kitchen, creating a treat to share with their friends at school. Not only is it great family time, but it allows the child a chance to take ownership of the treat they offer to their friends.

LET THEM EAT...
Police seek armed men who put scare into downtown residents Kamloops Mounties are looking for two men involved in an armed confrontation on Sunday, Feb. 10, at about 11:20 a.m. A group of people sitting on the deck of a rooming house in the 400-block of St. Paul Street in downtown Kamloops were confronted by two men armed with a shotgun and hand gun. The two demanded to know where a specific person was and, after asking
questions, left the area. One of the people on the deck went to the Henry Leland House nearby to ask counter staff to call police. Police are looking for a medium-built white man between the ages of 25 and 30 with dark hair and a pock-marked face. He was wearing a blue hoodie, a black hat and sunglasses. He had a camouflage tactical belt
around his waist, loaded with ammunition. The second person is described as a native man with light-coloured skin between the ages of 30 and 40. He is taller than the other suspect and wore his long black hair in a ponytail. He was wearing a grey hoodie, camouflage pants and boots. The major-crime unit is helping with the investigation.

Memories of Roy to be shared Cactus Jack’s to host memorial service at 7 p.m.on Saturday ◆ From A1
No doubt there will be talk this weekend about Roy’s love of flight, a passion he had hoped would give him a career as a pilot, but his height was a problem. “He couldn’t fit in the planes,” Joyce said. “Back then, they were smaller. But, he loved to fly. He got his licence when he was 17, as early as he could. He was a good pilot who at one time owned three planes he used to run a charter airline — and to fly Joyce to vacation spots. Roy also spent a bit of time as a teenager playing hockey in high school, another love he carried through his life, playing in the local old timers’ league up until he got sick about 18 months ago. “He really missed it when we went south,” Joyce said of her husband’s love of the game. For Roy, it was a fun but, for their son, Murray, it became a passion that saw him
make it to the National Hockey League. All the Barons are still involved in the business Roy started, sharing ownership of Cactus Jack’s — although Joyce said she doesn’t go there very often. “I’d feel like everyone’s grandmother if I went.” Roy loved his boat and fishing, but never really got interested in golf, Joyce said, despite all their trips south to areas where the tee rules. It was the getting-there that was his joy, packing up the motorhome and heading off for new destinations, seeing new things and making some longstanding friendships with like-minded people. Kathy Ross was one of them and she, along with her husband and two other couples, headed north from Palm Desert last week in hopes of seeing their friend one more time. They didn’t make it before Roy died, but they have mental filing cabinets full
of memories, of stories, of moments spent with the Barons. “It’s rare to find friendship like this,” Kathy said. “He was a man of very few words, but he had that look that spoke volumes. And he had such a dry sense of humour. “He was such an astute businessman and has been part of the woodwork of Kamloops for years and years and years. He’s done a lot for the city of Kamloops.” Family and close friends knew Roy’s illness was terminal. “But, he never gave up,” Kathy said. “He went through the chemo, but he always had a hopeful attitude. “But, when he decided last Sunday that he’d fought long enough, that was it and we knew it would be quick.” And, just as that first look 49 years ago started a life together, the last one brought the chapter to a close. “He looked me in the eyes and smiled,”

AURELIO CINEL Born January 6, 1930 (Nogare-Crocetta del Montello, Treviso, Italy) On February 7, 2013, surrounded by his family, Aurelio Cinel peacefully ended a life well lived. Aurelio is survived by his devoted wife of 50 years, Franca, his daughter Daniela (John) O’Fee, his son Giovanni (Cynthia Strong) and his two loving grandsons, Lucas and Colin. He will be sadly missed by his brother Ivo (Bianca) and family. Also left to cherish his memory are the Mazzotta, Porco, and Palermo families of Kamloops, the Sartori family of Burnaby and his closest cousin Angelo Gasparetto of Ottawa. Predeceased by his brother Emilio and sister Rina, he leaves many relatives in Italy to mourn his passing including his sister Agnese. Aurelio grew up under the shadow of the Second World War as the third of ﬁve children in a hardworking and self-reliant family. As a boy of 12, he began his training in a factory as a shoemaker. In 1954, he left Italy to set down roots in a new country and pursue a job with the CNR. Five years later, he and his brother Ivo established a new business that would apply his craftsman’s skills as a shoemaker. He took special interest in the unique footwear challenges of the physically handicapped and applied his keen mind to designing and building shoes to ﬁt their individual needs. For over 43 years, Centre Shoe Renu was a downtown ﬁxture where he would enjoy the company of many friends and customers before retiring at the age of 72. When not at the shop, Aurelio was busy growing a beautiful garden, making quality wine, enjoying bocce with his friends at Paul Lake or walking and cycling down by the river. He will be remembered for his strong tenor voice, his ease on the dance ﬂoor and his warm sense of humour. Aurelio had the heart of an artist and the mind of an engineer. From the handmade fountains in his garden to the ingenious solutions he found to any construction problem, he was a man who could build or ﬁx nearly anything. On a warm summer evening his back deck would be a place where friends and family would gather over a ﬁne glass of his wine and enjoy the simple pleasures of friendship celebrated in the setting of a well tended garden. Many a small child has held his hand in wonder and delight as he showed them his thriving vegetables and blooming ﬂowers. These are the moments we will all miss the most. At the onset of ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), Aurelio applied the same determination he put towards every challenge he faced. Always thinking ahead, he personally installed handles and mobility aids throughout the house and even crafted his own special cutlery that he knew he would need in time. Our family shares his thanks to Dr. Jill Calder and the team of nurses and therapists who enabled him to stay in the home he built until his ﬁnal day. Father Peter Nguyen will celebrate a Funeral Mass on Saturday, February 16 at 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church (635 Tranquille Road). In lieu of ﬂowers, please remember Aurelio by making a donation to the ALS Society of BC, the charity of your choice, or just spend some time in a garden with your children or grandchildren. Aurelio would like that. Arrangements entrusted to Schoening Funeral Service.
ROBERT ‘BOB’ WALTER CROUSE It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved husband, father and best friend Robert ‘Bob’ Walter Crouse on February 7, 2013 at the age of 63. Bob passed away peacefully at home with his wife Jocelyn and son Ryley by his side. Bob fought his 2 year battle with cancer courageously never once losing his sense of self and pragmatism. Along with Jocelyn and Ryley, he leaves behind his step-son Joe (Marissa), step-daughter Amanda (Rob), brothers Gary, Michael (Pauline), and Donald, sisters Cathy (Mike) Wiseman and Pamela Downey, five stepgrandchildren – Ashton, Araya, Ty, Reece, and Gracie, numerous nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, and cousins . Bob was predeceased by his son Ryan (1995), his father Walter (1998) and his mother Rose (2009). Bob first came to the Shuswap over 30 years ago to become the voice of news, sports, and weather for CKXR Radio and the Big R network. He loved what he did, the people he met and worked with, and the many opportunities for outdoor recreation that living in the Shuswap afforded. Bob touched many lives during his time here and he will be forever missed by all those who knew him and loved him. There will be no service at Bob’s request. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to a children’s charity of one’s choice. Cremation is in the care of Bowers Funeral Service & Crematorium. “May God grant you always… A sunbeam to warm you, A moonbeam to charm you, A sheltering angel so nothing can harm you. Laughter to cheer you, Faithful friends near you, And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.” -Celtic Prayer-

Norman and Karen had 49 wonderful years together, he will be missed everyday. Norm was a man totally devoted to his family, as his main goal in life was always to provide for them which he put his heart and soul into accomplishing. He succeeded beautifully.
The two most important things to Lillian were her family and her garden. She grew spectacular roses that she enjoyed sharing with friends and neighbours. We will miss her sunny smile and her helping hand.
His happiest times were working in his ﬂower garden, building cedar products and hunting with his good friend and hunting partner of 30 years Zane Turriff.

Do Not Go Gentle Into That Good Night DYLAN THOMAS
Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Though wise men at their end know dark is right, Because their words had forked no lightening they Do not go gentle into that good night. Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Wild men who caught and sang the sun in Áight, And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way, Do not go gentle into that good night. Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay, Rage, rage against the dying of the light. And you, my father, there on the sad height, Curse, bless, me now with your Àerce tears, I pray. Do not go gentle into that good night. Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Pack eye playoffs By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
After an unimpressive first half of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League season, the TRU WolfPack have earned points in their last six games heading into this weekend’s road trip to Vancouver Island. “I‘ve always quoted John Wooden, who said that adversity defines character,” WolfPack bench boss Don
Schulz said. “We certainly have had our share of adversity this season and now the team’s true character is coming through. This weekend is another huge challenge and opportunity for us.” TRU (8-8-0-3) will play the Vikes (7-120-1) twice in Victoria — the first game slated for Friday, Feb. 15, with the rematch set for Saturday, Feb. 16. With five games left
in the world and holds 23 world records. Kotelko owns every athletics world record in her age group — in events ranging from sprints to hammer throw to triple-jump. Joining Kotelko is the North, Central American and Caribbean World Masters Athletics 2012 female athlete of the Year, Christa Bortignon, 75. Bortignon returned to track and field in 2009 after 55 years away from athletics. She holds records in 28 Canadian events. Parking and admission is free.

Proceeds from the event will go to two annual Thompson Rivers University scholarships, the reformation of the Kamloops men’s soccer team and the annual Errol Wild Soccer Tournament. Wild was a strong supporter of soccer in Kamloops, volunteering time as a coach, league executive and a mentor to others. There will be music by Tony’s DJ, silent auctions and late-night snacks at the event. Tickets are $20 and can be bought at Hansport, by calling Claude or Carly at 250-573-5280 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

March 8. Schulz is hoping his charges are firing on all cylinders by then. “We are a team on the rise and it’s a good time to do it,” he said.

Kamloops horse-racing coma gallops on By Marty Hastings
Dark clouds hang over the River City’s horse-racing scene. Marty Hastings/KTW
STAFF REPORTER email@example.com
The supposed hot tip phoned into KTW’s newsroom proved to be nothing but an expansion of the black mark on horse racing in Kamloops. Yes, there was, as the informant suggested, an Interior Horse Racing Association (IHRA) meeting in the Tournament Capital on Saturday, Feb. 9 — but returning race days to the city was not on the agenda. “I believe Kamloops is finished,” said IHRA board member Karrie Crucil, president of Princeton Racing Days. “Most of us have always felt that if anybody should have been able to make it, it would have been Kamloops.” It turns out the Hub City is just a central location for members of the IHRA board representing cities that still have race days — Vernon, Princeton and Osoyoos. For the first time in about 15 years, Osoyoos is expecting to host racing — two days, one in June and
one in August. The summer of 2009 saw eight days of big hats and fast thoroughbreds at Sagebrush Downs in Kamloops; the summer of 2010 saw four; and, by the summer of 2011, horse racing had been eradicated from the city. “Personally, I don’t feel it’s good for us not having Kamloops,” Crucil said. “I think having all four tracks — Kamloops, Vernon, Osoyoos and Princeton — worked best for the industry. “It gave the owners and trainers and breeders a circuit. “When they had their young horses that weren’t quite ready for Hastings Park yet,
City of Kamloops
they could start in Princeton, go to Vernon, go to Kamloops, go to Osoyoos and then go back to the bigger tracks.” The City of Kamloops handed over the Sagebrush facilities to the Tk’emlups Indian Band several years ago and funding backslid in the transition. Also among the reasons for the sport’s decline in Kamloops: Online gambling, a lack of purse money and funding from the provincial government, a dwindling number of race horses in the province, B.C. Lottery Corporation’s decision not to have slot machines at Sagebrush and, according to some, including Luigi
Sale, the former president of the Kamloops Exhibition Association (KXA), the general public’s waning appreciation for the sport. “The people now just don’t really care about horse races,” he said. There are plenty of people who do care, though. Doug Peterson, a longtime member of the KXA’s horse-racing committee, for example — “It breaks my heart,” he said. “You bet it does.” Crucil said a fresh start in a new location might be the only way to revive horse racing in the River City. “There are still lots of people that really hope and dream for Kamloops,” she said. “Best-case scenario is they need to find a different facility. It would have to be a complete do-over.” The Tournament Capital Ranch in Rayleigh might prove a suitable spot for a new facility. There have been preliminary discussions between the City of Kamloops, the KXA

STRAIGHT OUTTA COMPTON By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
HE NIGHT BEFORE SHE was scheduled to speak to the media about art, Elena Compton had dinner at her grandparents’ house. After dinner, while grandma and her mother cleaned up, Elena plunked herself down crosslegged on the couch, her sketch pad and coloured pencils in hand. By the time the women were done and it was time to head home, Elena had created a snowy owl in such striking detail one looking at might believe the bird was staring right back. The 12-year-old doesn’t remember exactly what the jury said about her submission to last year’s Kamloops Arts Council Juried Art Show and Sale — but she knows she went home with a smile on her face. She’s in the event again this year, the youngest of the 65 area artists who will show their work at the Old Courthouse Cultural Centre from Feb. 16 to Feb. 24. Elena discovered art when she was two, she said, and it’s been her passion ever since. She’s studied with local artist Joey Nash, entered some of her works in other art shows in Kamloops, taken classes at Thompson Rivers University — and given classes at her school, Arthur Stevenson elementary, for other students in grades six and seven. “I love eyes,” she said while showing some of her work. “There are so many things you can do with them. So many colours, the reflections, I just love them.”
The snowy owl came after some prolonged nagging from her dad, who had liked one she had done earlier on black paper. The quality of the paper led to the work fading “and my dad kept saying ‘Do a snowy owl. You have to do another one’,” Elena said. Her work is hung throughout the house — and has also inspired her to use it as the base for a book she’s been working on for about a year. Kaza Wolfe is the story of a young girl who discovers she is part wolf. She meets others like her. The story’s not done yet, Elena said, but much of the artwork for it is started. Art is her career goal, although she is interested in the animation side of art and hopes to study it in university. This is the third year the arts council has had an open show and sale. Glen Mantie, himself an artist and participant in the event, said it’s open to any amateur artist, providing them with an opportunity they might not otherwise have to show and perhaps sell their works — and get feedback from professional artists. The jury this year includes Alan Brandoli of the visual-arts department at Thompson Rivers University, Craig Willms, assistant curator at the Kamloops Art Gallery, and Tricia Sellmer, a local artist and curator. The show is open at the centre from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Prizes will be awarded on the opening night, Friday, Feb. 15. First prize is $300, second is $200 and third is $100. There is also a $100 prize for the People’s Choice Award.

Canadian â€œSuperfoodâ€? Gaining International Attention Creator of UMAC-Coreâ„˘ UMAC-CORE is a unique product created out of an urgent need. In 2004 Tom Harper was diagnosed with a life threatening illness caused by asbestos exposure and given only months to live. He had been raising shellďŹ sh at his Research Sea Farm on Vancouver Island, simultaneously perfecting the only method worldwide of growing wild phytoplankton for use in the Aquaculture industry. Based on the wild planktonâ€™s powerful nutritional proďŹ le, upon his diagnosis he decided to consume the blend of micronutrients as an energy source he so desperately needed at the time. Every day he ingested the minute ocean plants and every day he felt stronger and experienced less pain. Finally a surgeon performed exploratory surgery. To the doctorâ€™s surprise he was inexplicably able to deliver Mr. Harper a clean bill of health.

Love Letters takes unique approach R.A. Gurney play details 50 years of romance — read from love notes Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the Kamloops Players Society is putting on a touching play detailing the love of two people — presented in a unique way. Love Letters, which began yesterday (Feb. 13) at the Stage House Theatre on the North Shore, depicts five decades of a relationship between a man and woman, Andrew Makepeace Ladd III and Melissa Gardner, beginning when the pair was five years old. “It’s their life story over the next 50 years read through cards and letters they have received from each other,” said Betty Nelson, the play’s producer. “Quaaout Lodge did this as a dinner theatre years ago and it’s very interesting. “It starts off with Melissa’s birthday when she was five years old and it carries throughout their entire lives.” Love Letters was written by A.R.
Gurney and first performed in 1988. The play runs through Saturday, Feb. 16. Evening performances are at 7:30 p.m. The $25 admission fee comes with coffee, tea, a glass of wine and dessert. Matinees are also being staged each day at 2 p.m. Admission for the early shows is $10, and comes with coffee and snacks. Nelson said the play shows the Kamloops Players Society is cementing itself in the local theatre scene. “We’re a young, amateur group, but we’re starting to pump out a lot of plays and get our name out,” she said. “We are here, and we have our own little theatre here.” The Stage House Theatre is located at 422 Tranquille Rd. Parking is free. Tickets are available at the Kamloops Live Box Office, 250-3745483.

The Vagina Monologues returns to Kamloops By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
The curtain rises at 7:30 p.m. on Valentine’s Day, but organizers of this year’s Kamloops run of The Vagina Monologues want women to get in on the action a little earlier. Producer Rebecca McLean is asking women to turn their radios to B100 at 11:30 a.m. today (Feb. 14) and dance to Canadian artist Nelly Furtado’s Spirit Indestructible. Around the globe, other women will do the same. “The whole idea is, for the length of one song, you get up and leave your daily routine,” McLean said. “For three minutes
just to go outside and join with others around the world in solidarity.” The event is part of the One Billion Rising campaign, which seeks to end violence against women. “Their slogan is ‘One billion women being violated is an atrocity, one billion women dancing is a revolution,’” McLean said. “It’s a positive response to a really negative statistic.” Performed by 27 local women, the show is based on more than 200 interviews playwright Eve Ensler conducted with women of all ages and sexualities. The show — which is performed around the world each February — is free to stage as long
as groups commit to donating their profits to community organizations that combat violence against women. Locally, McLean estimates the show has raised $50,000 during the last six years. This year, profits will go to Interior Community Services, Kamloops Immigrant Services and The Family Tree DropIn Centre. Originally run as a single night at Thompson Rivers University, the show has expanded to three nights and routinely plays to sold-out theatres. McLean thinks the show’s success locally is a matter of attitude. “That’s a big part of it, that it’s fun,” she said.
“When you walk into the convention centre, you have to walk through these huge fabric vaginas to even get into our theatre.” Outside the theatre, there is a silent auction and a host of vaginathemed items for purchase, including cupcakes and underwear. The Vagina Monologues can be seen at the Kamloops Convention Centre from Thursday, Feb. 14, to Saturday, Feb. 16. Doors open at 6 p.m., with showtime at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $20, or $25 for table seating, through the Kamloops Live Box Office, 2015 Lorne St., 250-3745483, kamloopslive. com.

SHE TAKES THE CAKE By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
When Sharaf Alsalim graduated from Thompson Rivers University last year, there was a very special mortarboard hat waiting for him — and it was definitely not the academic kind. It was a cake his wife, Hamedah Alismail, made for her husband, an exact replica of the gear atop his head during convocation. While all things business dominate their education lives — Sharaf has a master’s degree in business administration and Hamedah is finishing a degree in accounting — at home the cake is the thing, generating plenty of requests from friends and colleagues for Hamedah to work her magic for them. The international student from Saudi Arabia wanted to learn cake decorating, but wasn’t sure how to start. Someone referred her to Michaels, which runs classes in various types of cake decorating. She took a class and, at the end of the twohour session, went home and put in another two hours working on the skill she had learned. Four classes later, Hamedah has mastered the various types of icing required, can create almost any kind of flour, turn a cake into a woven basket
or a springtime hat — wherever her imagination takes her. Sometimes she’ll use a cheesecake base for her creativity; other times, it might be several layers of regular cake, each a brilliant shade of the rainbow. “I like colourful,” Hamedah said. “Anything with colour, I like to do.” The pair came to Kamloops from Saudi Arabia five years ago. At the time, they knew nothing about the city other than it was the destination they were being sent to as part of a scholarship program in their country. When they arrived, Hamedah said, “it was a shock for the first few days and there were only about 30 Saudi students at that time.” But, the community — and their own love of Kamloops — has grown through the years. They’ve talked about returning home and starting a cake business but, first, Hamedah wants to take some additional courses in Vancouver to master decorating wedding cakes. That might happen after she graduates next year, she said, but for now, she’s kept busy with cake requests from people who have seen her work — as well as from her two children. “My dream is to be more proficient,” Hamedah said. “So, I make cakes — lots of cakes.”

COMMUNITY Ten-year-old Bronson Sens will be on the Variety’s Show of Hearts telethon on Global TV this weekend. The Parkcrest elementary student was three when he was stricken with encephalitis. To donate to the worthy cause, tune into Global from 7 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 16, to Sunday, Feb. 17, or go online to variety.bc.ca.
Credit Score and Home Buying Part II What many prospective borrowers don’t realize is that the pricing of mortgages and other loans is based in part on their credit-worthiness, and a person’s credit score is the established measure for credit-worthiness. People with a lower credit score can ﬁnd themselves paying a higher interest rate, or denied access to certain types of loans. The good news is that by taking a few basic precautions, prospective borrowers can protect their credit report and credit score, and increase their access to better rates and a better choice of mortgage products. Do you understand the difference between your credit report and your credit score? A credit report is a detailed history of how consistently you meet your ﬁnancial obligations and provides a picture of your ﬁnancial health based on your past behaviour. A credit score is an objective summary that translates personal information from your credit report and other sources into a three-digit number representing your overall credit-worthiness. Both your credit report and score are important. When deciding whether or not to grant a mortgage loan, lenders refer to an applicant’s credit report and score, along with a range of other factors such as income, employment history, and down payment size. Generally, a credit score uses your past credit history to help predict how you might manage your credit in the future. The credit score used most often by Canadian lenders is the FICO score (developed by the Fair Isaac Co.), which is a number between 0 and 900. The higher your score, the more likely you are to be approved for a mortgage and receive favourable rates because the lender considers you to be a better credit risk. Several factors are used by the two credit agencies in Canada (Equifax Canada and TransUnion Canada) to calculate credit scores: • • • • • •
Debt payment history. Amounts owed compared to your current credit limits with lenders. How often you seek new credit. Length of time you have had credit accounts. Type of credit, such as car loans, lines of credit, credit cards, ﬁnance company loans. Recent new credit or cancelled cards
Fortunately, there are a number of steps that consumers can take to keep their credit report and credit score healthy: Pay your debts on time – always meet due dates. Do not ignore unpaid bills. Borrow only the amount you can afford to repay. Numerous inquiries for your credit report can sometimes worsen your score. If someone is seeking a new credit card, furniture and department store loans then their credit score will be adversely affected. However, multiple inquiries within a 30 day period for car or mortgage loans have less effect. Reviewing your own credit ﬁle regularly to stay informed about the details on your ﬁle.

Local lad is Variety telethon’s featured child By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER firstname.lastname@example.org
As you read this, Bronson Sens is likely getting ready to pack his suitcase for a flight to Vancouver this weekend. Bronson, 10, and his brother Cooper, 8, are pretty excited about the trip, said their mom, Kim Becker, even though it’s just less than an hour up in the air to arrive for his moment as the featured child on the weekend’s Show of Hearts telethon. Getting to this point, however, has been seven years of hard work. When Bronson was just three, he came down with what his mom thought was the flu. The doctors thought so, too, but, within days, he was falling down and saying his legs felt like they were broken. The family lived in Pinantan at the time and Kim said by the time they got their boy to Royal Inland Hospital, he had lost his motor skills.
That flu-like illness Bronson had was actually encephalitis and, by the time it had run its course, Bronson not only lost his motor skills, he almost died. That’s when Variety-The Children’s Charity stepped in. “When he got well, instantly they were right on me,” Kim said, ensuring she had support, referrals to wherever she and Bronson needed to go and, most importantly, the equipment he would need to get on with his life. That has included a wheelchair and power chair, a walker, a bicycle and so much more. Variety’s support of her and Cooper was also invaluable because, Kim said, there were many days when she wondered, “Why me? Why me? I was afraid to take him home from the hospital even, but then you realize you have to suck it up and do this for him. “So, the goal is to make him as independent as possible.”
Some of Bronson’s motor abilities returned; he can get by with a walker and there are railings on all the walls at home to help him, but his muscles are still developing and learning to cope with the legacy of the disease. Bronson has fallen a lot — he has a chipped tooth to prove it — but he always gets right back up again. “He’s a redhead,” Kim said, “so he has a little bit of fire in him.” Both boys attend Parkcrest elementary and everyone was thrilled when people from the Global television network — which will air the telethon on Saturday, Feb. 16, and Sunday, Feb. 17 — arrived to do an interview. “The school is great. Everywhere we’ve gone, people are so good,” Kim said. The telethon starts at 7 p.m. on Saturday and continues to 6 p.m. on Sunday. To donate, go online to variety.bc.ca and follow the links.

Grieving a MacBook and the warm comfort of soup The often-heard wisdom when bringing home a new companion is, “Don’t get too attached.” “These things don’t live forever,” they say. “It’s not worth crying over in the end,” they say. And yet, when my faithful helper of only three years began to suffer a series of ministrokes, I felt a lurch in my stomach that made it hard to think about food and writing about food. “We’ll just make soup tonight,” said Chefhusband, knowingly. “Chicken broth with a few ingredients. OK?” I nodded and looked
DARCIE HOSSACK Bon APPÉTIT toward the phone, waiting for news, good or bad. That was back in July. At the time, the news was promising. But, these last seven months have been spent in a slow decline, with a nagging thought worrying at the back of my mind.
“What will we do when the time comes?” For the time being, I hid a box of chocolates in my desk drawer, followed by a carton of goldfish crackers, for which I’d reach whenever my optimism began to waver. In denial whenever I could manage it, I went about the daily business of putting down thoughts about food. Until this morning, when while affixing sentences to a page, my faithful MacBook once again slipped into a terrible and seizure-like state. This time, electronic dementia settled in, not little by little, but all of a sudden.
Suddenly, there was no more pretending. And, though it was too soon, it was well beyond the help of the warranty. Rather than a second trip to the emergency counter at the Genius Bar, I raced to keep in front of a wave of error messages that fell like damp leaves that smack you in the face on an autumn walk. As quick as anyone has ever clicked, converted and dragged, I translated Pages documents into Wordfriendly files and dropped them onto a data stick. Now that it’s almost over, I’m left looking back.
After decades of using bulky PCs, I adored my MacBook laptop. With its bright little apple on the cover and its magnetic power cord that clicked free whenever I wanted to take it for a walk, it was the perfect creative companion. Elegant. Created by intuitive designers who understood how to gracefully fit components and programs together; the way a cook designs a kitchen so everything is at hand and no steps are wasted. Nevertheless, it had been for years of glitch-free use that I first turned toward all

things Apple — for the all-but-promised freedom alluded to by its makers. “We’ll just make soup tonight,” said Chefhusband as he pulled a Ziploc bag of veal meatball mix from the freezer and sat down
to set up my new computer. Then, as the apple light on my MacBook grows dim, it’s time. I close the lid and move on, and into, a new computer. And it, for better or worse, is a PC.

Bus trips through time in The Loyalist City Canada’s first city, Saint John is full of history and charm By Rick Millikan TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES travelwriterstales.com
When a hurricane forced a cruise liner to seek refuge at the mouth of the Saint John River, halfway up the Bay of Fundy, Saint John first appeared on tourist radar. While stranded there, passengers and cruise line operators discovered this New Brunswick port’s extraordinary history, nature and warm hospitality. To thoroughly investigate this intriguing port-of-call, we board hop-on, hopoff buses offering three narrated routes. Painted pink, these double-deckers raise funds for cancer research. The first takes us above the dock area to Reversing Falls Rapids. On arrival, the tide is rising slowly, and then forces the river’s flow to reverse. These upstream rapids boil into raging whirlpools beneath the bridge, which provides two kayakers some rollicking rides. In the nearby information center, we learn that this tidal surge is not only highest in the world, it’s felt as far inland as Moncton — a city more than 120 kilometers away. Pathways lead us high above the falls into Wolastaq Park, where wooden sculptures eight metres tall represent contributors to Saint John’s development. Plaques tell us about the legendary giant beaver, indigenous Maliseet natives and Samuel de Champlain, who discovered the river below on St. John Baptiste Day — explaining its name’s origin. Another depicts Françoise-Marie La Tour, first European woman in New Brunswick and one who was instrumental in running the family’s trading post. Benedict Arnold also stands in this park. This heroic general and infamous traitor of the American Revolution lived in New Brunswick for six years, operating a shipping and trading business until he relocated to England. And, yes . . . there’s even a statue of George Oland, celebrated founder of Moosehead Breweries — Canada’s oldest and largest family-owned brewery. From up here, we gaze over historic Saint John and spy Carnival Glory, our dockside ship. To the north, we see Oland’s brewery and a small pulp mill. The wood-products enterprise is part of the Irving family’s vast empire, which includes Canada’s largest refinery, shipbuilding, media and transportation. As local benefactors, the Irwins sponsored the creation of this lofty park. A second bus ride takes us to centuryold Rockwood Park, the area’s primary recreation area. Pathways follow the edge of a forest to
Fisher and Lily lakes, where we enjoy the bright yellows, oranges and reds of fall foliage. Afterward, we walk along the road to a bronze monument to labour, where we board another bus. Hopping off again above the downtown, we check out Fort Howe — built on high ground to repel American raids. Only one cannon and stockade remain. We hear that a royal charter in 1785 integrated loyalist communities surrounding this fort establishing Saint John, the first incorporated city in British North America. Our last bus carries us into the historic city centre where we view the Old Burial Ground, Imperial Theater and County Courthouse. Strolling through King’s Park, we behold an ornate wrought iron bandstand, a 1909 memorial to King Edward VII. Across the street, the City Market boasts an original ship’s hull roof design. Built to last, this solid red-brick structure survived the city’s great fire of 1877. Inside, we browse produce, seafood and craft stalls, eventually settling into a cozy spot for bowls of piping-hot chowder. Our stroll continues toward Loyalist House, Saint John’s oldest building, where the Union Jack of 1783 still flies. Five generations of its original family resided here for over 150 years, all the while maintaining its colonial charm. Loyalist House has long celebrated local craftsmanship and those true to the English monarchy, migrants from the rebellious U.S.
The Reversing Falls Rapids (above) are a fascinating tourist attraction in Saint John. The city is also home to Wolastaq Park, where a statue (left) of The Father of New France — Samuel de Champlain — stands in honour of one of the first Europeans to arrive in the area more than 400 years ago.

King’s Park was created in 1909 to honour King Edward VII and remains a popular spot.
Pieces of history preserved in Saint John XFrom B12
We see the kitchen’s original furnishings, including an iron pressure cooker dating back to 1795 and then head upstairs noting the bedrooms’ cabinet toilets — a glimpse into what life was like prior to indoor plumbing. In the master bedroom, a mahogany canopy bed supports a high mattress accommodating a servant’s sleeping space below. Though a system of bells alerted servants, the guide explains, this bed design allowed for immediate help. Our ramble back to our ship pass-
es the New Brunswick Museum and several art galleries. We stop to admire delightful public art along the waterfront, including a surreal lighthouse and huge bronze moose. Across the street, we pose for photos with zany wooden folk waiting at a bus stop and duck into 18th century Barbour’s General Store. Now a museum, souvenir shop and tearoom, we browse absorbing its historic charm. Re-boarding, we’re soon sharing our interesting experiences in Saint John with shipmates as we bid farewell to Canada’s port extraordinaire.

WEEKLY HOROSCOPE ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 It’s best not to make any trouble this week, Aries. Simply ﬂy under the radar, and others may not know you are around, which can work to your advantage.
SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, a change of pace will prove refreshing this week. Instead of sticking to your normal schedule, do things out of the ordinary for some excitement.
TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you might want to keep a few things close to the vest, but sharing with others might help as well. Consider both angles and make the best decision for you.
SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Emphasize spending quality time with family this week, Sagitarrius. Tackle a few home-related tasks or simply hang around the house for some good times.
GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Hiding emotions will be difﬁcult this week, Gemini. Your emotions will be written right on your face when you interact with others, but that’s OK because you’re in a good mood.

CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, ﬁnances may be tight for a while, but it’s nothing you haven’t seen before.You may need to buckle down a little while longer until the accounts ﬁll up. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, a spending spree is about to end. While it was enjoyable while it lasted, it’s now time to replenish the coffers and go easy on the shopping. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, there are certain health remedies that you can try to improve your levels of energy. Stick with the regimen.
VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, fun might have to be put on the back burner this week. While it’s healthy to enjoy yourself, it’s now time to get back to business. Step up your game at work. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, it is almost crunch time for you, and you’ll have to buckle down for the next few weeks to get everything completed. Don’t leave things until the last minute.
B14 THURSDAY, February 14, 2013
Trust plus obedience equals real faith “Whatever He says to you, do it” (John 2:5). Some people think a life of full trust means a do-nothing life. Instead, it means a life of implicit obedience. It is not to do some things, but to do “whatever He (God) says.” The gospels say Jesus “learnt obedience” and he knew the blessedness of it. We shall, too, if we follow those words. Who said it? His mother. She knew so much about that dear Son of hers. He would never ask them to do anything that not for their good. She knew it was well worth doing what he said. When we know as much of Jesus as his mother did, we shall not only long to do everything he says ourselves, but we shall wish to lead others to do the same. To obey is a happy thing when it is to obey Jesus. Obeying at once is comparatively easy, but if we wait, it becomes harder. A little longer and it becomes very difficult.
which is expressed Jesus’ command to in Hebrews 12:2: the servants was: “Fill “Fixing our eyes on the water pots with Jesus, the author and water.” perfecter of faith.” Mary did not know We need to keep what He would say fixing our eyes on but we read that the Jesus moment by servants, following moment, if it is to be the strange comNARAYAN MITRA an effectual “fixing. mand of Jesus, filled We cannot take a the vats to the brim. You Gotta Have look which will last They did not mind the FAITH long into the future. trouble. If we want to Perhaps some of us know the time, we look at the would have filled them only halfwatch or the clock. full. Let us not obey the Lord in But that look will be of no avail part, but with a brimful obedience. in a few minutes — we have to Then Jesus said: “Draw out look again. now.” Similarly, we must keep lookHow strange to draw water for ing continually to Jesus. the governor of the feast! Psalm 112:7 says of the good But, because Jesus said, they man, “He will not fear evil tidings; did it. his heart is steadfast, trusting in the They took the water that had Lord.” become wine and bore it. The person who trusts in the If they had reasoned or refused, Lord will have “evil tidings,” but there must have been delay or no wine at all. They trusted a stranger! he will not be moved. It is such a blessed experience From the incident of waterthat if an archangel were to tell us turned-into-wine, we learn the we were to have no more trouble, attitude our soul ought to assume,
we would not thank him. Christ learned obedience by suffering. Should we shrink from them? If we hope for the companionship of God throughout eternity, He would expect the disciplined ones down here in His own way. We can’t have a stock of grace. We want our hearts just fixed on Him who gives grace. What the Lord wants is to keep us chronic beggars. All we have we receive from Him. It ought to be so – I am a poor beggar, but I have my hand on the open purse of a true friend by my side who is both able and willing to supply my need. He keeps telling us to take as much as we want. The more we take, the better He likes it. We shall always have enough moment by moment, but we shall never have more than enough for the moment. The moment a Christian’s heart is unfixed and he begins to doubt and murmur and regret God’s will, he is on the high road to distrust and unbelief.
The more trouble we have, the more we are to repose on Jesus. If we have very many troubles and the Lord were to say: “I only can undertake half of them,” our case would indeed be a sad one. But He is willing to take every trouble from us and He does it with much love. But, perhaps we say: “I have no faith.” This is not true though we may have very little. Perhaps we think we must wait until we have strong faith. Where do we find this in the Word of God? We must make use of the faith we have, then we may pray for more. If we do not exercise the faith we have, we are almost mocking God in asking for more. Let’s put all in the hand of the Lord, remembering that unbelief is sin. Let us throw ourselves at His feet, with little or much faith, with emotion or no emotion. And, let us do it today. firstname.lastname@example.org
