Kamloops-North Thompson MLA and Environment Minister Terry Lake says Premier Christy Clark is the right person to lead the B.C. Liberal Party into the May 14 election, despite calls for her resignation over a leaked strategy to court ethnic voters. The memo, released on Feb. 27 by the B.C. NDP, lists a number of steps to “re-engage with ethnic voters,” from recruiting “validators” who can call nonEnglish radio programs to respond to attacks on the party to identifying “historical failures of the NDP government on multicultural issues.” Another section of the 17-page document advises the government to use apologies for historical wrongs as “quick wins” to connect with ethnic groups. The memo also suggests the party use government resources for the project. The plan has sparked anger in the Lower Mainland, particularly in Surrey, where a group of Liberal party members has called for Clark’s resignation. But, Lake said, that’s not going to happen. “I don’t think it’s something that we would consider and it’s something cabinet certainly

doesn’t want to see happen,” he said. “If people are looking for perfection, we could have any number of people lead this party, but no one is perfect. And what I’ve told people is no one cares more about this province, or works harder for this province, than Christy Clark. I think people are very hard on her.” Cabinet ministers are “100 per cent supportive,” after meeting with Clark on Sunday, March 2, Lake said. “I believe we’ll come out of today [Monday] to the budget vote tomorrow [Tuesday] as one,” Lake said. “I really believe they feel the same way I do, that we want to work hard and do the best for British Columbians.” Lake said the language in the memo isn’t a reflection of the Liberal government. “Obviously, this is not right, when you have

things like the type of language we saw about apologies being ‘quick wins,’” he said. “That’s ridiculous, and we know that apologies like we did to the Japanese interment situation, and the same with the Chinese head tax, should be authentic and meaningful.” Todd Stone, the B.C. Liberal candidate to replace outgoing MLA Kevin Krueger in Kamloops-South Thompson, is also concerned by the memo. But, he refused to say whether Clark should resign if an investigation being conducted by deputy minister John Dyble finds taxpayer funds were misused. “I think we need to get the details, get the facts and the premier will take appropriate action at that point,” he said. Stone said his own campaign team works closely with Kamloops’ ethnic groups and he doesn’t think those relationships will be strained by the memo. “I certainly don’t believe it in any way means the efforts, the very sincere and honest efforts of our campaign team and the many folks from different multicultural communities in Kamloops who are supporting my campaign, I don’t believe it calls into question or colours the motives of anyone locally,” he said.

Frost jacking created slide Freeze-thaw cycle sent boulders tumbling down By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A rock slide that closed Hugh Allen Drive between Versatile and Copperhead drives should be cleaned up by this evening (March 5), with the road’s re-opening expected as well. The road has been closed since early Sunday morning (March 3) when large chunks of rock came crashing down on the section of road that climbs high over the Versataille commercial area, connecting Aberdeen with Pineview Valley. Dennis Luison, assistant streets manager for the city, said a geotechnical report shows the slide was caused by frost jacking. “It’s just a freezethaw cycle,” he said. “Water gets behind [the rock], cold temperatures freeze it, it just kind of jacks it out a bit. “And, over time, that may cause some rocks to let loose.” Luison said a rock slide of this magnitude is unusual, however. He estimates a five- to seven-metre

video-online] www.kamloopsthisweek.com section of the rockface, up to five metres thick in some places, broke away. “This is the largest we’ve had up there,” he said. “Normally, it’s just a few small rocks.” While there are rods drilled into the rockface in the area to hold it in place, Luison said slides are still “something that happens. “Ice has a lot of power, so all the preventative measure to hold it in place, that can change,” he said. To try to combat that, the city maintains a larger-than-average ditch along that section of Hugh Allan Drive. It’s that catchment area that is taking longest to clean up, and which is keeping the roadway closed. “We don’t want to open it until we can get the catchment area clean so it can hold more rock should it

want to fall,” Luison said. Once the road is clear, the city plans to

conduct a full geotechnical assessment of the rockface to determine if other preventative measures need to be put in place. A yellow Saturn was left at the scene of the slide on the weekend. It was slightly damaged by falling rock, though nobody was injured.

Moms for Clean Air hosts Utah sister group STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

A group of Kamloops mothers is banding together over shared concerns about air pollution in the city. Formed in December, Kamloops Moms For Clean Air aims to raise awareness of air-quality issues, said spokeswoman Gina Morris. “It’s to help the people of Kamloops to learn as much as they can about air pollution and its effects so they’re educated, so that they’re at the ready for what could be coming in Kamloops.” That includes the proposed Ajax copperand-gold mine. Morris said the group is concerned about the proximity of the mine, which would be built just south of Aberdeen, as well as the dust that could be kicked up by its operation.

Morris said the group is driven by concern over the health of its members’ children. “Children’s lungs, when they’re damaged at an early age, it’s irreparable,” she said. “There’s no going back. If they’re damaged when they’re children, they won’t have the same quality of life as adults.” As part of its education campaign, the group is hosting another mom-turnedair-activist at Interior Savings Centre on Sunday, March 10, at 2 p.m.. Cherise Udell, president of Utah Moms for Clean Air, started her advocacy group after her hometown of Salt Lake City experienced 22 consecutive red-alert air-quality days in 2007. Her group filed a lawsuit against Kennecott Utah Copper in 2011, accusing the mining company of violating the United States Clean Air Act. “With Cherise, it was just incredible, her

drive to clean up the air because they have such a bad situation there,” said Morris, who hopes Udell will inspire Kamloopsians to guard their own air more carefully. “I think the message Cherise Udell has is, if you can possibly manage it, don’t go there. Don’t let your air get so bad. Don’t go down that road if you don’t have to.” Udell will be joined by Dr. Brian Moench, president of Utah Physicians for a Healthy Environment, a group that partnered with Udell’s for the mine lawsuit. Sunday’s talk is free to the public and open to moms and non-moms alike. Udell will also hold a lunchtime meeting on Tuesday, March 12, at the Hal Rogers Community Centre in McGowan Park. The discussion, which Morris said is geared more toward mothers, will include a question-and-answer session. Moms are encouraged to bring their own brown bag lunches.

LOCAL NEWS BRIEFS

Forum in Kamloops to examine forest issues The Coastal and Southern Interior Silviculture committees and the Canadian Institute of Forestry/Institut Forestier du Canada will host a forum to address forest-management issues for the upcoming provincial election. The forum will be held on Wednesday, March 6, from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., in the Irving K. Barber Auditorium at Thompson Rivers

University For those unable to attend, it will be live-streamed online at www.livestream.com/livetru.ca. The forum will be held in a town-hall style meeting open to the public, with Vaughn Palmer of the Vancouver Sun as moderator. Candidates will be given equal time to define and articulate their parties’ policies on questions people have about forest-management

issues in B.C. There will be prepared questions from the host committee and those involved in the forest industry, as well as questions from the floor. For more information, go online to siscobc.com.

Public invited to learn about Highland Road project The City of Kamloops is

hosting a public-information session this week on the plan to upgrade Highland Road between Valleyview and Juniper Heights. The Highland Road reconstruction project meeting will be held on Thursday, March 7, from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Valleyview Community Hall, 2250 Park Dr. Residents are invited to attend and learn more about the project, slated for construction this year.

The plan involves widening Highland Road, between Valleyview Drive and Qu’Appelle Boulevard, to three lanes (two up and one down), plus construction of a multi-use pathway on the east side of Highland Road. The project will also include lighting improvements at all intersections and pathways, a stormdrainage system and landscaping at selected locations.

Not only have I grown up around mining, I have also worked extensively in the industry as operations, logistics, and project manager, as well as in a corporate setting in marketing, policy, corporate development, and project planning positions. I intend to bring a balanced and robust mining background to my role as External Affairs Specialist with the Ajax Project, focusing on government relations and communication.

Through experience I know that done right and responsibly, mining’s impacts on the natural environment and local community can be minimized while providing significant socioeconomic upside to surrounding communities. I will work tirelessly to demonstrate how we can achieve Zero-Harm with the Ajax Project while contributing positively to the sustainable growth and development of this dynamic community.

Spring Cleaning Street Sweeping Notice Starting mid-March, weather permitting, City crews will begin spring sweeping of streets in the valley bottom and working into the higher elevations throughout the city. The Spring Sweeping program on average requires 6 to 8 weeks to complete. In an effort to reduce sweeping time and costs, signs will be posted in the areas that are being swept advising the public not to park on the street. Some high density areas will have parking restrictions posted and/or notices delivered in advance of sweeping, for example, downtown east.

Residents who wish to sweep the area in front of their property are advised to remove the pile of sand accumulated as these piles can damage a sweeper, and operators are instructed to swerve around such piles. Your cooperation is appreciated. Inquiries can be made by calling 250-828-3461.

First Nations court comes to city tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

A new initiative at the Kamloops Law Courts aimed at crafting more appropriate sentences for First Nations offenders officially got off the ground on Monday, March 4. The Ckucwentn (Kamloops) First Nations Court is the third court of its kind in B.C., following similar programs in the Lower Mainland. “We have closely watched the First Nations courts in New Westminster and North Vancouver and we recognize the success that these two courts are experiencing through this healingfocused approach,” said Kamloops provincial court Judge Stella Frame, who will be

one of two local judges overseeing the court. “We strongly believe that the community of Kamloops will experience the benefit from a First Nations court and we are grateful to have received a great deal of support in this initiative.” On its first day, the court dealt with three files. The court’s goal is to apply a First Nations perspective in sentencing native offenders, using holistic and restorative approaches. The judges will be from the provincialcourt level, meaning the court has no jurisdiction over offences that would otherwise have to be heard in B.C. Supreme Court. The court will only take guilty pleas and will require the offender

to acknowledge responsibility. Proceedings will likely include elders, victims and family members — not unlike a traditional nativesentencing circle. Frame said it’s anything but a loophole for offenders looking for a lighter sentence. “The choice to go before a First Nations court to undertake a healing plan is not one to be taken lightly,” she said. “It takes a true commitment from the accused to rebuild their life and become a productive member of the community. “It takes hard work and effort from the offender and it takes the support of the community. We believe strongly that this initiative will have positive

results for all the people of Kamloops.” The Kamloops First Nations court will sit

at least one day per month. A grand-opening celebration is slated for Aug. 12.

INA CAPUTO’S sisters know that, when they start to pack up their sisters things, they will find confetti somewhere. And, despite their sadness at losing their sister last month, they know that discovery will make them laugh. “Gina always decorated her gifts,” said sister Anna Harrison, “and, one Christmas, she bought those clackers — remember those — filled with confetti.” The plot, sister Rosie Kirschner said, was for the kids to take the clackers home before they tried them out, ensuring both houses would be confetti-blasted and Gina could chuckle when her sisters called her on it. They beat her to the punch, though, realizing the mischief afoot and giving the kids the clackers during the annual Christmas party at Gina’s house, telling them to “run through the house clacking them,” Anna said. Gina still laughed and declared her delight in owning a vacuum cleaner. It’s those kinds of moments that are helping Anna, the longtime co-owner of Genesis Fashion and Beauty, deal with her sudden death — unexpected only in that, having been in hospital for four months, Gina’s doctors had made plans to release her on Feb. 25, but she died on Feb. 21, just days after her 56th birthday. The family — Gina is also survived by father Alfredo, brother Peter, in-laws and five nieces and nephews — knew her funeral

would be big, but were overwhelmed when about 60 people were left standing on the sidewalk outside Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church. But, they agreed, they really weren’t all that surprised, knowing how involved their big sister had always been in the landscape that is Kamloops. It was more than the 27 years at Genesis. There was her work in the original Downtown Business Association, the years she spent with the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, the Business and Professional Women’s Club, the Can-Ital Ladies Society and so many other groups and events. “She had the gift of organization,” Anna said, noting Gina was busy planning something with her Rotary Club while in hospital with a tracheotomy tube in her throat. Gina was six when her family moved from their hometown in Italy to Canada, heading directly to Kamloops because Alfredo’s brother and sister had already moved there. She started school two months later, unable to speak English. “But, we just learned it,” Anna said. “We were thrown into the culture once we came here and we just learned it.” Gina started out in another hairdressing salon downtown before deciding to open her own and soon found herself with a loyal clientele that, in recent years, was starting to encompass three generations of families. Anna knows they’ll all want to talk about her sister in coming weeks, after she returns to the Victoria Street salon.

“It will warm my heart to know that those people were there for her and will be there for us.” Family was key, be it Gina’s blood relatives or that extended family of clients, business associates and friends, Rosie said. She loved being called the Queen of Downtown — and lived up to part of the billing, Anna said. “We’d be out shopping and, at the end of the day, I realized I was carrying all her bags,” Anna said with a laugh. “It just happened that way.” Shopping was a key component of her relationship with Lori Nelson, who met Gina the second day the Nelsons moved to Kamloops and who talked with her almost every day, including long conversations over lunches and on Sunday evenings. “She was my sounding board, my shopping buddy, and this is going to be hard,” Lori said. They would share clothes and, when they tired of what was hanging in the closet, swap with each other. “She was the queen, definitely — assertive, very take charge and a perfectionist. We both are,” Lori said. “And, she was passionate about everything in her life — travel, family, fashion, her humanitarian work, everything.” Holidays and festive events were invariably held at Gina’s house, Rosie said, replete with decorations, food and fun. And, occasionally, some strange requests. “One Christmas, she said it was going to be a formal Christmas and we were all to wear our long gowns and tiaras,” Anna said. “So we did — but the next year, we told her it was going to be a pyjamas Christmas and we all wore our pyjamas.”

Location:

772 Battle Street West, as shown on the following sketch:

Purpose:

To rezone the subject property, which is currently zoned RT-1 (Two Family Residential-1), on a site-specific basis to modify the definition of family to permit a maximum of 12 people to occupy a two-storey singlefamily dwelling with a walkout basement with a total footprint of not more than 243 m2, a minimum setback of 2 m along the east property boundary, and a minimum of seven unobstructed parking spaces. In addition, the registration of a housing agreement prohibiting the renting of individual rooms will be required. The proposed rezoning will facilitate the establishment of a co-operative home on the property.

A copy of the proposed amendment to City of Kamloops Zoning By-law No. 5-1-2001 may be inspected at the Legislative Services Division, City Hall, 7 Victoria Street West, Monday to Friday between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm.

IKE A PLAGUE OF locusts that returns on a regular basis to wreak havoc, politics in B.C. have been, in the last generation, cursed with the implosion of parties in power. This self-destruction happens every decade or so and is accompanied by scandals of varying degree. In 1991, we saw the mighty Social Credit dynasty of 36 years destroyed in a few turns of the calendar by Bill Vander Zalm, a lady fond of hats, a hotel room and much other sordidness. In 2001, we saw the Gordon Campbell-led B.C. Liberals almost render the B.C. NDP extinct, leaving only Joy MacPhail and Jenny Kwan as NDP MLAs the morning after the election. And, this year, we are seeing the stunning dessication of those same B.C. Liberals, being ripped apart by scandals while their leader, Christy Clark, perfects the art of doing all the wrong things in response. The latest scandal to hit the governing Liberals is the one that will seal victory for the NDP in the May 14 election. The Multicultural Ethnic Outreach Plan is a 17-page document obtained by the NDP. It documents a B.C. Liberal plan to use taxpayer funds and staff to secure ethnic voting support. The document is brazen and insulting, citing apologies for past wrongs as “quick wins” with ethnic voters. There is more, much more, and it is so bad even Liberal stalwarts recognized no amount of spin could help. Deputy Leader Rich Coleman read Clark’s apology in the legislature. Clark apparently felt it more important to meet with the Vancouver Sun’s editorial board. “The language in this draft document and some of the recommendations are absolutely inappropriate,” Coleman said. After failing to face the heat in person, Clark flew to Prince George to do some ribbon-cuttings and attend a luncheon. There, she noted the person who drafted the obscene document, her deputy chief of staff and longtime friend Kim Haakstad, had resigned. (Haakstad emailed the plan to a number of taxpayer-funded staffers, including Pamela Martin, who gets tens of thousands of taxpayer dollars as outreach director for Clark’s office, a fancy name invented to reward the former TV newsreader for helping with Clark’s leadership campaign and subsequent byelection win. If Martin and others received and read those emails in the past year and did not alert Clark and others, should they not be sacked forthwith?) Clark claimed she knew nothing of the plan and seemed to believe Haakstad’s resignation was

appropriate closure. Not even close. As we say in the media, this story has legs and the B.C. Liberals are the ones pumping those limbs. Had the NDP not been given the document, this immoral (and possibly illegal) venture would still be in the works. If Clark had a shred of integrity, she would resign now. She may not have known about the scandalous plan, but it happened on her watch, in her office. Would her resignation help the party’s fortunes at the polls? It might, though the Liberals will be clobbered in any event. Think back to 1995. In November of that year, the governing New Democrats were not unlike the current Liberals — a party with a majority with a major scandal making headlines day after day. The scandal involved former

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS NDP MLA Dave Stupich eventually pleading guilty to fraud for using the Nanaimo Commonwealth Holding Society to take money raised for charity via bingo and send it back to the NDP. Premier Mike Harcourt was not involved and had no clue this was happening in the society, which had been created in the 1950s Yet, the premier resigned out of principle. Among those who gave Harcourt kudos for falling on his political sword was then-Liberal leader Campbell, who told Maclean’s magazine: “Mr. Harcourt has done the right thing.” As Harcourt was stepping down, the prevailing wisdom among pundits and politicians was that the NDP of the early 1990s would emulate the province’s first NDP government — led by Dave Barrett in 1972 — and be a oneterm wonder. Indeed, Jack Weisgerber, the former Socred MLA who became the leader of the fledgling B.C. Reform Party, all but dismissed the New Democrats. “The NDP is done like dinner,” he told Maclean’s. “The next election is going to be a two-way contest between us and the Liberals to determine who forms the government and who forms the opposition.” Kreskin he wasn’t as, only six

months after Harcourt stepped down, the NDP, led by the young and brash Glen Clark, won a second successive majority, leaving the Liberals as opposition again and wiping Reform from the political map. Should Clark resign, would a new leader change party fortunes, with the election two months away? Not a chance, but a new face, perhaps someone as respected and likeable as George Abbott, could mean a few seats here or there. And, while Clark emerged from the weekend’s emergency cabinet meeting claiming cabinet and caucus is united behind her and pointed to today’s budget vote as offering proof, happenings among riding associations would indicate anything but global support for the leader. If, as expected, all Liberal MLAs vote today in favour of the budget, it means they support the government, not necessarily their leader. After all, Harry Bloy stands alone among those who backed Clark in her leadership bid. Several riding-association presidents are disgusted enough with party shenanigans to have quit. “My experience with the B.C. Liberal Party is that the people that are involved in the local riding associations are nothing more than procedure,” Cory Cassel, who stepped down as president of the Abbotsford-Mission Liberal riding association, told the CBC. James Plett quit as vice-president of the Surrey-Tynehead Liberal riding association and terminated his membership, citing the ethnic-voters scandal as the last straw. “What makes it so repugnant is that the government misused taxpayer dollars to put together a document explaining how the government could misuse taxpayer dollars further and to offer apologies for absolutely horrible things all for a bump in the polls,” Plett wrote on his blog. “Not to actually apologize for the events, but with the end goal of winning popularity points.” The fact is, this latest scandal involving a plan to use government resources for partisan purposes is not the first. Last year, the Province revealed an anti-Adrian Dix website was being worked on by taxpayer-paid government workers. It really is overwhelming how a political party can plumb such depths of desperation when the end is nigh. It is overwhelming, but not surprising. Not in B.C. If Dix and the NDP manage to win re-election in 2017, look for another implosion of government about a decade from now. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

date in B.C. One of the issues mentioned as B.C. gets set for a provincial election, but only on occasion, is whether the fixed election date should be changed. When then-opposition leader Gordon Campbell promised a fixed election date, long before the 2001 election was held, he was a pioneer. No provincial government, and certainly not the federal government, had even suggested fixed election dates. Premiers and prime ministers wanted to keep the power of when to call an election to themselves and give their parties the greatest possible advantage. Thus, if the party was doing quite well, as Social Credit did under W.A.C. Bennett, an election was called every three to four years. When a party was facing annihilation, as the federal Conservatives were in 1993 and the NDP was in B.C. in 2001, the government would stretch its term out to the maximum five years. Campbell was true to his word and set up fixed elections. There have now been two of them, in 2005 and 2009, with the third set for May 14. Other provinces and the federal government have followed suit, although in the case of Ottawa, it has yet to abide by a fixed date, largely due to the fact the first two Stephen Harper governments were minority governments. A number of observers have suggested B.C. would be best to hold its elections in the fall, after the audited books for the previous fiscal year have been made available to the public. It is obvious from this year’s budget (and indeed from the 2009 budget) that budgets produced just before an election have more to do with attracting votes than managing public finances. All provinces except Nova Scotia have now set fixed election dates. All but Alberta hold their elections in the fall months — September, October or November. B.C. would be wise to follow suit. No matter which party is elected on May 14, a move toward holding the next election in September 2017 would make a lot of sense. September would be the best choice, given that municipal elections are held in November, and there will be occasions when both are held in the same year. The fixed date for a federal vote is in October. While it is unlikely to see elections in the same year (the next federal date is likely Oct. 19, 2015), any likely conflict should be avoided. — Langley Times

Krueger makes use of his bully pulpit Many errors Editor: Feb. 27 was the day Kamloops and area joined the anti-bullying campaign that has become a growing force in the country in the form of the annual Pink Shirt Day. Local area young people gathered in various places to demonstrate their determination to show their desire to bring an end to bullying and its effects. The news media, both local and provincial, had the job of bringing viewers a blight on a local event. Kevin Krueger, our Kamloops-South Thompson MLA (sorry, the word “esteemed” does not apply here) once again showed his lack of knowledge in appropriate behaviour for a politician. Granted, he is known as being like a volcano, erupting at the slightest irritation and spewing forth vast amounts of unintelligent verbal diarrhea, this time pointed at a political opponent. Krueger’s actions were a per-

fect example of bullying. He is unaware and most likely uninterested to learn bullying is not just physical, but mental, emotional and verbal. It affects adults as well as children. It reaches far and wide. In adults, we see a form of

it in elder abuse, in racial and homophobic slurs hurled at those of other lifestyles and on and on. As adults, part of our focus in life should be to set an example for our youth. We want them to grow up in a positive atmosphere and desire to contribute to their communities in a positive way. What an example this person (man is also not appropriate here) has set. Thanks go to our visual andprint media for not covering up this incident. I guess since this politician is not running again in the upcoming election, he chooses to go out in a blaze of smoke and fury — to the benefit of many. To all who put such effort in the anti-bullying projects, many thanks as your efforts will bear fruit. For more information on this vastly growing project, go online to the bullyproject.com.

Beware coyotes roaming in Valleyview Editor: I want to warn residents that there is a coyote running around that is not scared to venture off Valleyview Drive and wander into an area where many kids and pets live. This area is very close to the former Ralph Bell elementary.

Last year, we moved into a home near Vicars Road. On the weekend, we woke up to find our precious cat, Karma, dead inside the pool in our backyard. Her stomach was ripped open and all her insides were gone, as was part of her rib cage.

We had a conservation officer investigate and we are sure it was a coyote for a few reasons — the paw prints (with distinct claw marks) in the dirt, scratch marks as it obviously had a bit of a hard time trying to climb out of the pool and feces it left in our yard. This is added grief

for our family as March 29 will mark seven years since our daughter, Jessie Foster, has been missing. She vanished while living in Las Vegas and we had Karma the cat since shortly after Jessie went missing. Glendene Grant Kamloops

in Krishna column

Editor: Re: The Feb. 28 Rational Thoughts column by Bill Ligertwood (‘Jesus, may I introduce Krishna?’): It is a little surprising Ligertwood is still convinced Jesus is a copy of Krishna. Jesus’ life has been compared to numerous mythological characters over the years, most notably in the farcical online movie Zeitgeist. A simple check of the facts of these supposed parallels is all one needs to do to realize the parallels are very recent fabrications. Here are a few of the things Ligertwood gets wrong: 1. Krishna was born of a virgin. False. Krishna was the youngest of eight children. 2. Mother and child were visited by shepherds. False. Krishna was born in a prison and there is no record in the Hindu scriptures of a visit. 3. A tyrant ruler ordered the deaths of all firstborn. False. King Kamsa only targeted Krishna’s siblings. 4. Krishna’s parents’ flight to freedom. False. They were in prison. 5. Retirement to the desert. Possibly true, but trivial. 6. Baptism in a river. Trivial. 7. Transfiguration. False. Krishna had no foreknowledge of his death. 8. Anointed by oil by women. Trivial. 9. Fish story. Trivial. So, Ligertwood’s list of supposed similarities between Jesus and Krishna is nothing of the sort. It is simply a transparently puerile attempt to discredit Christianity by inventing parallels.

People in Motion executive director Heather Brandon is hoping a campaign to raise money for the agency’s bus will result in a March to remember for maintaining the vehicle in the months ahead. Dave Eagles/KTW

People in Motion has a notion By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

People in Motion (PIM) gave rides to more than 1,000 people last year taking part in the agency’s programs and events. And, given the bus used only seats 16 people, that’s a lot of trips. In fact, said executive director Heather Brandon, for a simple three-hour social event in an evening, the bus would be on the road for two hours before picking up and delivering people — and two hours after to get them all home again.

That’s plenty of wear-and-tear on a sixyear-old vehicle and the agency is starting to run into maintenance issues and the costs that accompany them. To help offset these expenses, Brandon said, the agency is running a Keep Our Bus in Motion campaign in March, with all money donated going to keep those four wheels turning. There’s no goal, Brandon said; anything donated will be gratefully applied to the busmaintenance costs. Expenses have been running at about $2,000 a year in recent years.

However, she added, as the bus ages, more things are likely to break down. PIM offered 180 programs last year, Brandon said, leading her to describe the place she has been at the helm of for about 18 months as “the little non-profit that does so much.” It has 280 members, 120 of them active members and the rest families, friends and supporters. Thirty per cent of the active members are youth, another 20 per cent are young adults and 23 per cent have autism.

Money for seniors’ programs About $8.4 million will flow from the provincial government to Interior Health Authority to address health care for frail seniors, people with chronic disease and those with mental illness or substance-abuse issues. The money is part of provincial spending of $50 million. The IHA will use $2.2 million for a BreatheWell program for people with chronic obstructivepulmonary disease, hiring two respiratory therapists to work with those patients to manage their symptoms and avoid unnecessary hospital visits. About $2.7 million will be applied to nine communities in the IHA region to deal with

mental-health clients. Some of the money will be used in Kamloops to hire four full-time-equivalent staff for the King Street IHA clinic, including social workers, a nurse and lifeskills workers. A Home First program to help seniors will receive $3.5 million throughout the health-authority area, which will be used to hire 23 full-time-equivalent staff to create support teams. In Kamloops, the program has hired an occupational therapist, physiotherapist, two part-time rehabilitation therapists and one full-time nurse to work with seniors with complex health-care needs.

PIM offers educational, recreational and social programs, many of them in the evenings and on weekends. The bus is also taken to local schools, along with a wheelchair for students to try out and attempt to use the bus lift to load onto the vehicle. The sessions are followed by a discussion on accessibility. Donations can be sent to the PIM office at 182B Tranquille Rd., or people can call the agency at 250-3767878.

Much, much more than just a Games Exhibit at Kamloops Museum looks at the 1936 Olympics — and the impact the Games had on Canada By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

They’re known as “The Nazi Olympics.” In 1936, some of the world’s most elite athletes converged on Berlin to compete in the 11th Olympic Games. The Games were awarded to Berlin five years earlier, before Adolf Hitler’s Nazis rose to power. But, the Führer used the world’s collective gaze to his advantage — and the result was one of the most controversial Olympics in history. “Different people had different opinions on the Olympics,” said Richard Menkis, a history professor at the University of B.C. who will be giving a talk on the 1936 Games — and the Canadian implications — this week at the Kamloops Museum and Archives. “But, for sure, the Nazis used it as a propaganda ploy.” XSee CANADIAN A155

Instead of looking ahead to the 2014 4 Olympic Winter Games — which begin inn less than a year in Sochi, Russia — the he Kamloops Museum and Archives is looking ng back to the 1936 Games in Berlin, widely ely regarded as the most controversial Olympics cs in history.

The festival, which began on March 1 and will run through March 23, showcases more than 20 stunning images — all shot by members of the Kamloops Photo Arts Club within the boundaries of the City of Kamloops and the Tk’emlups Indian Band reserve. Images include shots of the new roundabout on Lorne Street stitched together to show a unique perspective, the iconic Moose Squadron fighter jet lit by moonlight, an infrared tornado over Mount Paul and other unique shots of buildings and landmarks every Kamloopsian will recognize. Throughout the festival, Kamloops Photo Arts Club members will be available on Saturdays between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. to explain how the images were accomplished and captured. For more information about Kamloops Thru the Lens, log on to the club’s website at kamloopsphotoarts.ca.

Free copies of a zine publication for A Narrative Corpse are now available at the Kamloops Art Gallery. A Narrative Corpse began in 2011 with a series of comic strips passed from artist to artist in an “exquisite corpse” drawing game. The final panel from 2012 was the starting point for the exhibition drawn on the walls of The Cube. Artists involved include Michelle Anderson, Marlaina Buch, Ben Eastabrook, Ryland Fortie, Emilie Hope, Nick Klie, Krystal Klymchuk, Ross Macauley, Nelina Magliocchi, Justin McLean, John Morstad, Phil Ryan, Melaina Todd, Martin Tuba, Dawn Vernon, Luke Vigneault and Randy Wagner. A Narrative Corpse runs through March 23 in The Cube. The zine publications are available at the KAG store.

Canadian Olympic officials turned blind eye to Nazis XFrom A13

Menkis, who, along with University of Toronto history professor Harold Troper, is writing a book on Canada and the 1936 Games, said Canadian officials handled the situation poorly in 1936 — essentially pretending there was no issue at all in Nazi Germany. “Canadian Olympic officials, their view was, ‘We’re the elite — we know what’s best for Canadian athletes,’” he said. “They weren’t interested in hearing what the dissenting views were. “They really didn’t allow for any kind of proper voicing of a debate. They just behaved like

they didn’t need to listen to anybody.” Canada’s 97-athlete contingent returned from Berlin with nine medals. Menkis said the decision by Canadian officials to treat the Games like any other — at least publicly — is a black mark on Canadian Olympic history. “There was, in the press [prior to the 1936 Games], some debate,” he said. “But, the organization [the Canadian Amateur Athletic Union] didn’t participate in that. “If you don’t allow for discussion or debate, good will can’t flourish. It was a terrible thing.” Menkis said he and Troper began researching the topic of

Canada and the 1936 Olympics prior to the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. The two put together an exhibit that ran for about a year — including the length of the Vancouver Games — delving into the Maple Leaf and the 1936 Olympics. Now, the Kamloops Museum and Archives is hosting the exhibit, titled More Than Just Games: Canada and the 1936 Olympics, through May. Menkis’ presentation is slated for Thursday, March 7, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at the museum, 207 Seymour St. Admission is $8 and attendees are asked to pre-register by calling 250-828-3500.

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I test drove the 2013 VOLKSWAGEN CC. This luxury car was awesome! It handled very smoothly and the 3-in-1 transmission let me choose from three driving modes (automatic, manual or sport). I LOVED the Adaptive Front-lights - when I turned a corner, a side light came on to show where I was going! And it was powerful but also great on gas, with a surprising amount of interior room for a sports vehicle!

Mercedes-Benz coming soon . . . to your living room Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. (SCEI) has presented Driveclub a brand new racing franchise developed exclusively for Playstation 4 by Evolution Studios. The car lineup in this pioneering game, which conveys better than ever before the heart and soul of motor racing and the passion it inspires, includes several sports cars from Mercedes-Benz — first and foremost among them the new CLA 45 AMG and the new A 45 AMG. Both these highperformance vehicles will be celebrating their real-world premiere in March 2013.

Driveclub and the new Playstation 4 console will be launching this holiday season. Playstation 4 is SCEI’s next generation computer entertainment system that redefines rich and immersive gameplay with powerful graphics and speed, intelligent personalization, deeply integrated social capabilities, and innovative secondscreen features. Driveclub is a networked game to be played in real clubs, encouraging players to team up and to collaborate and compete with one another while experiencing the thrill of driving the best cars in the world, on the best

Volvo’s 60 cluster gets dynamic boost Scandinavian design is exemplified by beautiful, simple shapes and surfaces with any unnecessary clutter removed. This is evident in the redesigned interior and exterior of the new 60 cars. Inside, the attention to detail, the authentic materials — such as wood and leather — and the easy-to-use controls contribute to the in-command driving experience. Supportive yet comfortable seats that ensure a fresh and relaxed arrival after the longest of journeys have been a Volvo strength for decades. The buyer of a new S60, V60 or XC60 in R-Design specification now benefit from a new sport seat that retains this traditional comfort and makes a perfect addition to the in-command feel of a true driver’s car. The new dynamic S60 design, with its purposeful, dynamic appearance, accentuates the car’s sporting nature. Inside, there are upgrades such as new upholstery colours, new wood inlays, a new headliner, and the silk metal frames around the air vents and light controls. The new Volvo V60 is the car for people who need the versatility of an estate but want the handling of a sports sedan — all in a stylish Scandinavian package. As with the new Volvo S60, the design team has increased the new V60’s road presence by emphasizing its horizontal lines, which visually connects the car directly to the road. At the heart of the extra versatility of the V60 is its intelligent seating. The rear seats can be folded down in three 40/20/40 segments, so that the rear 430 litres of load space can be supplemented quickly and easily.

roads in the world. The audiovisual quality of the cars and the tracks is staggering, and the view from the cockpit is absolutely true to life, immersing the player in every race and recreating the power and the drama that they would feel if they were actually sitting in the driver’s seat.

The Mercedes-Benz CLA 45 AMG (shown) and the A 45 AMG, along with further vehicles with the three-pointed star, will join Driveclub on the Sony PS4 Playstation.

Who knew Jeeps could go like this? wheelstalk.com

“It’s not a race,” they tell you repeatedly. The laps are not timed. The stands are quiet and empty. There are no pit crews. No TV cameras. No paparazzi. No Carl Haas running after your car, waving his cigar and a racing contract. No cup. No trophy. No champagne. I know all this. We had already driven the surrounding roads and this was, after all, just a controlled venue to explore performance capabilities. But, what a venue! The Circuit of the Americas is carved out of the Texas hills, designed to Formula One specifications and features a wide track with changes of elevation, hairpin corners, sweeping curves, challenging esses and long high-speed straightaways along its fiveand-a-half kilometre length. The pavement is fresh, almost virginal, marked with only a few of the rubber trails and tales of disaster that angle into the walls and runoff areas. It would be easy to be cowed by a track like this and I am suitably respectful, especially after the “no-race” lecture. Until, of course, I catch sight of the vehicle ahead of me. It is growing ever larger in my windshield. A few more turns and then the long 130m.p.h. straightaway and you try to gain ground by holding your nerve longer than the other guy, roaring in at full-bore closer to

the corner, outbraking, tracking through the apex and then back on the gas. The gap is shrinking. The pace heats up — more corner squeals and then the home straight and an arm comes out of the vehicle ahead and waves me by. It’s one of the young pups, which makes it even sweeter. I mash the gas, blast past and crack my own windows to hear the distant cheers of a vivid imagination, along with the grandstand echoes of the Jeep’s engine and exhaust roar. And, yes, you did read that right — Jeep. As ludicrous as that may sound at first — a descendant of the original army offroad warrior lumbering about on a track designed for Formula One cars — anyone familiar with the SRT legacy will know that it really isn’t that much of a mismatch. The 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT is the performance offshoot of Jeep’s premium flagship. It makes its muscle the old-fashioned way — with brute force and V8 power — but that classic combo has been stroked with technological changes made across the board for the 2014 Grand Cherokee lineup, modifications that make this the fastest Jeep ever. The SRT promises

performance times of zero-to-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds, zero-160-zero km/h in 16.3 seconds and it can cover the classic drag race quarter mile in the mid-13second range — all of which is pretty impressive for a beast boasting a 2336 kg (5150 lb) curb weight. Top speed is rated at 257 km/h. The standard 6.4litre Hemi V8 carries over with 470 horse power at 6,000 r.p.m. and 465 pound-feet of torque at 4,300 r.p.m. But, that power is now mated to an allnew 8HP70 eight-speed automatic. This is a fully electronic transmission with an adaptive shift map that improves performance, enhances fuel economy and finally brings the SRT up to towing par with its other Grand Cherokee siblings. The new tow rating, at 7,200 pounds, is a 44 per cent improvement over the 5,000-pound towing capacity from the previous model, giving the SRT practical application to match its performance jones. Working alongside Chrysler’s FuelSaver Technology, a system that deactivates four cylinders when conditions allow, the increase in the number of cogs makes a nod to better fuel economy. There’s even a new

$ Eco button on the centre-stack that will adjust shifts and performance on those rare occasions when an SRT driver isn’t giving the gas pedal the full welly. Fuel economy is now rated at 16/10.7L/100km (city/ hwy). I last tested a 2012 SRT8 predecessor (rated at 17.1/11.4L/100km (city/hwy)) and averaged 17.2L/100km. My combined numbers are usually closer to the “city” rating so I would expect the new 2014 SRT to give you a real world average of around 16L/100km. While I’m not too sure how often SRT drivers will engage the Eco button, I’m pretty sure they will be fascinated with the new “Launch” button designed to control initial acceleration. Stab the button, floor the gas and the big behemoth will optimize engine power and traction to hustle you down the road. That power is put

down to the pavement through an improved and retuned Selec-Track full-time four-wheeldrive system that adapts torque distribution through five driverselected mode settings on the console — auto, snow, tow, sport and track. XSee RACE-INSPIRED A21

Race-inspired ‘bells and whistles’ inside new SRT XFrom A20

The front/rear power ratios for those different setting are 40/60 auto, 50/50 snow and tow, 35/65 sport and 30/70 track. After all this discussion about get-up-and-go, it wouldn’t hurt to mention that the 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT also has some other impressive performance values, like 100-zero km/h braking in 35 metres (116 feet) and a taut and sport-tuned suspension designed to handle its mass and muscle. All of this performance potential is wrapped in a handsomely revised package. The signature, seven-slot grille is shorter and gnarlier. New slimmer headlamps are set against a unique black back-

New for 2014, an SRT-exclusive heated three-spoke steering wheel gives drivers a chunky grip, a flat bottom, bigger paddle-shifters and comfort, convenience and connectivity controls.

100 km/h times and much more. There’s a new leather-wrapped, T-handle shifter, new gauge display and a redesigned, SRTexclusive heated three-spoke steering wheel with a flat bottom, bigger paddle-shifters and comfort, convenience and connectivity controls on the spokes. Laguna leather, surround sound, I could go on and on. But, the only surround sound I want switches on with a stab of the “Start” button. On pit lane, I watch the SRT ahead of me start up the sharp incline towards Turn 1 as I wait for the track marshal’s “Go!”. I start to wonder if I can catch him. Even though this, uhh, isn’t really a race.

ground to distinguish SRT from other 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee models. LED light treatment is mirrored front and back. And, a more aerodynamically efficient rear spoiler tops an all-new, one-touch powered liftgate branded with a new SRT badge (the engine cylinder number reference has been dropped). Inside, the race-inspired interior features all the bells and whistles you’d expect from this premium trim level. New enhancements inside the 2014 Grand Cherokee SRT include the new Uconnect 8.4-inch display screen and multimedia controls with SRT-exclusive Performance Pages, including recent track times, lateral acceleration, zero-

Convention centre prepping for $1.7-million renovation By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Sometime this month, the venue most people know as the Kamloops Convention Centre will be closed and a $1.7-million renovation project will begin. When it reopens for events later in the year, the site will have a new look, said Wade Sutton, director of food and beverage at the Coast Kamloops Hotel and Conference Centre. Little structural work is planned but new wall and floor coverings, improved acoustic tiles and many more esthetic aspects will be enhanced. Some minor work will also be done at the adjacent theatre — attention to wall and floor coverings — but it will still be in use, with a planned dinner theatre with the Laughing Stock Theatre Society, the same group that brought Kamloops Cinderella two years ago at the theatre and Puss N Boots last Christmas at Sagebrush Theatre.

Sutton said he’s anticipating a September or October relaunch for the ballroom and is looking at events that will help showcase it to the community and to organizations looking at Kamloops as a site to hose their events. Prestons — the restaurant that was originally known as Ora — will also have work done on it although Sutton said he’s hoping that does not require a shutdown. The project is expected to begin in late March or early April and take about two weeks. The work is part of an overall renovation to the Rogers Way 200room hotel complex that saw the south tower of rooms completed last year and work about to finish on the north tower. When it is all done, about $8 million in renovations will have been completed, Sutton said. And, while the look may change in the rebranding, one thing remains the same — the chef in the kitchen.

Award-winning chef Romeo Oloresisimo remains in charge of the menu, which has been changed to reflect the Coast’s Preston-chain theme. “And, when you have a chef like Romeo, only good things can come from that,” Sutton said.

ORRYN BROWN got off the schneid at the World Junior Curling Championships in Sochi, Russia, on Monday, March 4. Brown’s Team Canada rink — third Erin Pincott, second Samantha Fisher and lead Sydney Fraser (with alternate Cathlia Ward and coaches Ken Brown and Brian Fisher) — moved its

record to 1-4 with a 9-4 victory over the Czech Republic. “It feels really good,” Brown said of earning her first win. “It took a while, but we finally got it under our belt. Now, we can just keep moving on and get some more wins on the way.” Canada is in a threeway tie for seventh place with Switzerland and Sweden. The top four teams after round-robin play advance to the Pagesystem playoffs.

Russia, at 4-2, holds the fourth and final playoff spot. Scotland’s Hannah Fleming is atop the women’s standings at 6-0, with Denmark’s Stephanie Risdal Nielsen and Japan’s Sayaka Yoshimura, both at 4-1, tied in second place. Brown will likely have to sweep her four remaining pool matchups and hope the teams in front of her falter, if an unlikely playoff berth is in the cards. “After that game,

I think it’s possible [to win the rest of our draws],” she said. “We just have to hope for the best. “Certain teams have to lose certain games, but all we can do is concentrate on ourselves and not what happens in other games.” Next up for Brown are draws today (March 5) against the U.S. (3-3) and Switzerland.

Blazers look to build momentum against Royals By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

The Victoria Royals will not be kings of the B.C. Division this season, but the Kamloops Blazers still have a shot at the throne. Kamloops welcomes Victoria to Interior Savings Centre tonight (March 5) in what might be a first-round playoff preview. If the Blazers cannot catch the Kelowna Rockets, who hold a three-point lead atop the division with a game in hand on the secondplace Blue and Orange, then they will meet Victoria in Round 1. Game time tonight is 7 p.m. Cole Cheveldave is expected to start in net for Kamloops. The Royals have posted a 1-7-1-1 record in their last 10 games, but Blazer captain Dylan Willick is not letting his guard down. “They’re a team that works hard,” Willick said. “They’re not going to give us anything, like we’ve seen in a couple games where they came back on us. “Maybe they’re not playing as good as

they want to, but at any moment they can score goals.” Kamloops is coming off a three-win weekend in which it downed lowly Prince George and Vancouver before blanking the Rockets 3-0 on Sunday, March 3, at ISC. “Everybody’s finding their place,” Willick said. “All of our defencemen are going. Cheveldave is playing great. The forwards have found some chemistry in their lines. It’s a good time for that to happen.” Forwards might have found chemistry “in their lines,” as Willick said, but there is likely still some juggling to be done before the postseason arrives. Matt Needham’s absence from the lineup due to an upper-body injury (he is not expected to return this week)

has forced Blazer head coach Guy Charron to experiment with different pairings. JC Lipon landed on a line with Cole Ully and Brendan Ranford on Sunday. The Regina product scored a hat trick and the unit combined for seven points. Ully had found chemistry on a line with Needham and Chase Souto before the centre from Penticton was injured. If the Blazers do surpass the Rockets and repeat as division champions, then a first-round matchup with either Everett or Seattle will be in the cards. Willick, as one would expect, said his team is more concerned with its own play than which opponent it will meet in the first round. “Ultimately, winning the division title is what we want,” said Willick, who’s racked up 15 goals and 29 points in an injury-shortened season. “Looking at it in a sense of who we’re playing in the first round, we’re comfortable playing anybody. “We’re a confident team.”

Spence spills, but gets up to nab provincial gold Eric Spence of the Kamloops River City Racers managed to claim gold after hitting the deck in the 3,000m race at the provincial shorttrack speedskating championships in Mission on the weekend. The 14-year-old speedster was tripped on Lap 9 of the T2T 14 Division race, but recovered by Lap 17 and went on to win. Spence finished second overall

in the 10-person division, placing second in both the 1,500m and 400m races and fourth in the 200m pursuit. The results helped Spence qualify for the Western Canadian Championships, held in Canmore on March 23 and March 24 Tori Spence, Eric’s elder sister, placed fifth in the 3,000m and ninth in the 1,500m at the North American championships in Salt Lake City.

Rain-soaked Raiders return winless The Kamloops Rugby Club Raiders left Langley with a bag full of wet jerseys and a bus full of bruised egos on Saturday, March 2. Langley beat Kamloops in B.C. Rugby Union men’s first-division play, 58-3, and men’s second-division play, 7-0, on a muddy field, which by day’s end offered little traction for the combatants. Brandon Kicia was the only Raider to reach the scoresheet, booting one penalty kick for the first-division men, who dropped to 6-5 on the season. The second-division men are 2-9. Both men’s teams head into a bye week and will not play again until March 16 against the UBC Thunderbirds in Vancouver. The Raiders’ next home fixture will be

played at Rayleigh Rugby Park on March

23, when Seattle is in town.

ANN BRENNAN PHILLIPPI

RAYMOND STRATTON

April 18, 1944 - February 28, 2013

1927-2013

She passed away in the loving arms of Dewayne, her husband of 43 years and surrounded by her daughters.

O Daddy…….with heavy hearts and all our love we send you back to the Lord.

Ann is survived by her husband, Dewayne, daughters Michelle Phillippi, of Bowling Green, Kentucky, Brenda (Dewayne) Edwards of Georgetown, Indiana and grandchildren Kyleigh and Tanner, brother James (Judy) Brennan, sisters Mary (Phil) Weetman, Norah (Gary) Williams, Yvonne (Garth) Dickie, Helen Clark and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, William and Yvonne Brennan, her brothers Willie and John. Ann was born and raised in Kamloops. She graduated from NorKam High and went on to UBC where she received a teaching degree followed by a Masters in Education from Boston University. She taught in numerous schools in Kamloops before marrying a man in the American military. Ann taught school in Kentucky, Germany and Kansas before retiring in 1993 to Somerset, Kentucky. Ann loved her sports, watched and cheered on the U of K Wildcats. She enjoyed many cruises and trips with her siblings. She will be sadly missed by all. Services to follow in Kentucky where she will be laid to rest in the military cemetary.

On February 28, 2013 at 85 years of age, Raymond Stratton passed away. He will be lovingly remembered by his children; Donna (Gary) Kroeker of Peace River, BC, Darlene (Bruce) Moffatt of Kamloops, BC, Gordon Stratton of Cobble Hill, BC, Robert Stratton of Skutz Falls, BC, Douglas Stratton of Mission, BC, Debra (Paul) Gagnon of Cobble Hill, BC, Daughter in-law Dee Stratton of Salmon Arm, 9 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren, Siblings; Albert, Helen, Frances and Bill, and numerous nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his loving wife of 60 years Betty Stratton, eldest son Ron Stratton, granddaughter Trisha Moffatt, two sisters Marion and Isabell, three brothers Clark, Albert, and Warren. Ray spent the last few years of his life at the Hillside Village. The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Weicker, the staff, the Chaplains Bill & Veronica Kiesman for their loving care. Words cannot express our gratitude.

NorKam IB students Peaking with task They’re on the eighth draft of a survey they are creating, but the International Baccalaureate (IB) students at NorKam secondary remain resolute. They will complete their one-month task to promote one of the millennium development goals of the United Nations — the one that talks about the 72-million children around the world who never finish Grade 2. With the help of a youth grant from CIDA-funded Global Changemakers, the students have been researching their topic and deciding ways to promote its awareness, said teacher Jackie Niblock. The students call their enterprise Project PEAK — the acronym comes from the concept of primary education for all kids — and have developed several social-media resources to promote the information they have learned. They have created a website (projectpeak.net), a logo (a figure made of basic school supplies millions of children never have) and a Twitter feed. They’ve had to learn about writing press releases and approaching the media, Niblock said. They’re spending time at A.E. Perry elementary, Brock middle school and their home school sharing the informa-

tion they’ve learned — wearing special T-shirts they designed to help identify their program. “A lot of research has been done in their spare time,” Niblock said of the project, one that helps them meet the IB requirement to create and complete something outside of their regular school timetable that addresses community service, fitness and creativity. The survey they’re creating has two parts to it: One to gauge what students know about the issue before they hear the PEAK presentation and one to be completed later to help determine how successful the impact of their talks has been. It’s been interesting watching them learn, Niblock said. Take the survey, for example. When they decided to create one, the students assumed it would be pretty easy — but they’ve now learned there’s an art to create such a resource. The grant requires the work be completed within a month and, halfway through, Niblock’s confident they’ll succeed — but she knows that won’t be the end of it. The students are already looking at ways to raise more money to help them expand their project and do more with it.

In Loving Memory of CHRISTINE RAE SCHAAK 1945 - 2013 Christine Schaak (nee Gammelseter) was born on May 17, 1945 in Winnipeg, MB. She died suddenly at home in Barriere, BC on February 26, 2013 at 67 years of age. Christine leaves behind her soul mate and friend of 46 years, John; sons Jason (Marnie), and Dana of Kamloops, BC; brothers Ralph (Dolores) and Robert (Diane) of Winnipeg; sisters Ellen (Terry) and Maureen (Al) of Winnipeg; grandchildren Erik, Kayla, Emily, Nicole, Sanna and Lauren, all of Kamloops, as well as many nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles all across North America. Christine was predeceased by her father Ralph and her mother Ruth, as well as her infant son, Jason. After her schooling, Christine worked in the printing business in the Bindery Department back in the ‘Peg. She came out to Kamloops, BC in 1976 with John and they moved to Surrey in 1982 where she spent her spare time (if any) at the Kinney’s Shoe Store in the Guildford Mall. Back they went to Kamloops in 1983 to raise their two sons until they left the nest. Then, Christine worked for Liquidation World. In 2008, Christine and John moved to Barriere, making retirement “semiofficial.” In Barriere, Christine volunteered with the Thrift Store, she helped at the Flower Shop and was very active with the Garden Club. Christine’s family was very important to her, and she earned the distinction for being chosen as the best place for her sons and their friends to go to after school for cookies and snacks on Sandpiper Drive. She was known across the province for having the best “Rum Balls” and “Chocolate Brownies.”

A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00 pm on Wednesday, March 6, 2013 at the Kamloops Alliance Church with Reverend Wayne Sieward officiating.

Following cremation, there will be a gathering to pay tribute to Christine Schaak at a later date. Donations would be appreciated in Christine’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of BC & Yukon, 1212 West Broadway, Vancouver, British Columbia, V6H 3V2.

Pennies From Heaven I found a penny today Just lying on the ground But it’s not just a penny this little coin I’ve found. “Found” pennies come from heaven That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down Oh, how I loved that story . He said when an angel misses you They toss a penny down Sometimes just to cheer you up Make a smile out of your frown So don’t pass by that penny when you’re feeling blue It may be a penny from heaven That an angels tossed to you.
