be LEAF it By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

There’s a certificate on the wall of Jennifer Elliott’s class attesting to some nifty achievement in the Maple Leaf Math Contest in 2011. Another maple leaf com-

manded the attention of the Grade 5 class at Aberdeen elementary on Wednesday, March 6, as Treysen Goddard made his bid for the Guinness Book of World Records. The 10-year-old brought in a maple leaf his grandfather found in Langley several weeks ago, one that Treysen was pretty sure

would beat the existing Guinness record. That leaf, found last November, also in B.C., was submitted by a Campbell River man and verified to be the largest in the world at 21.25 inches wide and 24 inches from top to bottom. X See MAPLE LEAF A5

Time is up for Kamloops’ fleet of parking meters. Kamloops city council has approved a package of parking reforms for the downtown that will see the city’s 850 coinoperated meters swapped out for 90 digital pay stations and parking fees increased to $1 per hour from 50 cents. But, after residents raised concerns about the cost of the plan — about $1.7 million — at a public meeting last week, the city has revised how it will pay for the changes. Instead of borrowing the cash for the pay hubs over a 10-year period, which would add $390,000 in interest to the cost of the project, council voted to pay back a loan on the project in five years, which reduces interest costs to just over $60,000. Coun. Tina Lange called the more aggressive timeline a “great compromise.� While many at the public meeting asked council to hike meter rates now to collect enough money to pay for the new stations at once,

Lange said the move would turn off some shoppers. “People need to get some value out of that increase in rates,� she said, arguing the new stations, which accept credit cards and allow motorists to pay for parking with their smartphones, offer that value. Councillors Donovan Cavers and Marg Spina weren’t so sure the city should go full speed ahead on the new technology. Cavers wanted to see a more “hybrid� approach to parking that would phase the machines in slowly. “I guess my concern is, what if it doesn’t work?� Spina added. “What if we do this and we have this big investment of 90 pay-bylicence-plate kiosks and it doesn’t work?� She suggested the city raise the rate on its meters immediately, then use the extra cash it collects to purchase enough pay stations to run a test program on a few hightraffic blocks of Victoria Street. However, other councillors believe the kiosks are already proven technology.

“I’ve used kiosks in Holland and Ottawa and Vancouver and I think we’re ready for them in Kamloops,� Coun. Nancy Bepple said. Coun. Arjun Singh said that, while he’s been frustrated by pay-station experiences at Royal Inland Hospital, he hasn’t heard the same concerns reported about similar kiosks at the Tournament Capital Centre and in offstreet lots around the city. He also pointed out changes council were voting on were originally raised by downtown business owners and pitched by the Kamloops Central Business Improvement Association. “I really thought long about whether this technology is good and I’ve also relied on the people who have the most to lose, the most to gain — the downtown businesses,� Singh said. “If people stop parking downtown, they’re screwed.� Council voted to install the pay stations by a margin of seven to two, with Spina and Cavers opposed. City staff said the pay stations, which will go to tender, should be in place in about six months.

Time to spring our clocks forward Daylight-saving time arrives this weekend and, with winter clinging on for dear life (witness yesterday’s persistent snowfall), it should be appreciated and anticipated by most. Turn your clocks back this Saturday night (March 9) before retiring for the evening, as 2 a.m. is the official time clocks jump ahead by an hour. The idea, as envisioned by New Zealander George Vernon Hudson in 1895, is to make the world a brighter (or at least, sunnier) place as spring succeeds winter.

That’s the case for most of North America, where daylight-saving time always takes place on the second Sunday in March. Daylight-saving time is not, however, observed uniformly around the world, or in Canada — or even in B.C. A couple of countries in South America do. In most of Asia and Africa, they don’t. In places like the UK and Europe, the switch doesn’t happen until March 31. Even in Canada, time has been skewed.

When Mining & Urban Populations Collide An Afternoon with Cherise Udell and Dr. Brian Moench of Salt Lake City Moderated by Mel Rothenburger

Can people make a difference when mining and urban populations collide? Cherise Udell certainly thought so when she went to London to hold Rio Tinto accountable for the mine pollution that was seriously affecting air quality in Salt Lake City. Udell took the health concerns of the Utah Moms for Clean Air directly to the corporate board room. She raised the issue of corporate responsibility to the shareholders’ meeting and also addressed the Olympic Committee, which had promised the “greenest games ever,” despite contracting with Rio Tinto, a major polluter, to produce the Olympic medals. Joining Udell is Dr. Brian Moench, President of Utah Physicians for Healthy Environment. His medical expertise has been an essential component in the struggle to make Rio Tinto address the serious consequences of the mine pollution they produce. He discusses

medical research regarding air pollution and its effects on the functioning of the human brain, lungs and heart. Come and hear their remarkable story regarding the conflicting interests of resource development and human health and safety. Don’t miss the opportunity to attend this powerful presentation! Cherise Udell is Founder and President of Utah Moms for Clean Air. The dangerous quality of Utah’s air in the winter of 2007 prompted her to invite moms to help make Utah’s air cleaner and safer. Hundreds of mothers joined her and Utah Moms for Clean Air was born, stating, “We are uncompromising defenders of our children’s health.” UMCA’s many successes in protecting children’s health include legislation and funds to retrofit all the diesel school buses in Utah and the re-routing of a major Brian Moench, M.D. is Founder and President of Utah Physicians for Healthy Environment. UPHE is dedicated to protecting the health and well-being of Utah citizens, promoting science-based health education and interventions that result in progressive, measurable improvements to the environment. Some of the best studies on the relationship between public health and air quality have come out of Utah as a result of their efforts. Dr. Moench graduated from the University of Utah Medical School in 1977, specializing in intensive care medicine and anesthesiology. He is a former instructor

Like Saskatchewan, there are many standard-time stalwarts in Canada. In B.C., daylight-saving deniers include Fort St. John, Charlie Lake, Taylor, Dawson Creek and Creston In the winter, these towns share the clock with Edmonton (perhaps to mesh with the bleakness of a season of Oilers hockey). In the summer, these towns are on the clock with Vancouver (obviously exalting in the annual optimism of Lions football). Yes, you lose an hour of sleep (to be fair, you were enjoying a bonus 60 minutes since the fall), but you gain a whole lot of light. Enjoy.

Teachers wary of wireless By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Maintaining Rocky Mountaineer in city When the Rocky Mountaineer delivers its last guests of the season to their destinations each October, its trains have one more trip to make. Each off-season, 75 rail cars and locomotives funnel into the company’s maintenance yard on CN Road in Kamloops for servicing. This year, however, there is something new to see at the site — a state-of-the-art maintenance centre the rail-tour company is touting as a significant investment in the city. The 20,000-square-foot building was under con-

A3

struction for about two years and replaces a series of less-permanent structures on the site, said company spokesman Ian Robertson. “They were temporary, modular buildings. It looked like a very temporary facility,” he said. “This really signals our commitment to Kamloops and to that area.” The new setup allows the company to roll up to six cars into the building at one time. “We have lifting hoists and it’s all enclosed within a facility that makes it much more accessible and easy for

our staff to maintain the equipment,” Robertson said. In addition to the year-end checkups, rail cars are also funneled through the building when the Mountaineer makes overnight tour stops in Kamloops, as do two of its four routes. “Kamloops is kind of the midway point. Ever since the company started, our maintenance facility was in Kamloops,” Robertson said. More than 40 people maintain the Mountaineer’s rail equipment year round, along with another 28 seasonal staffers.

Teachers in the Nicola Valley want protection from the radiation of technology in the classroom, but their Kamloops counterparts aren’t ready to take a stand on the issue. KamloopsThompson Teachers’ Association president Jason Karpuk said his group is looking at the research on wireless routers, laptops and tablets and the amount of radiation they emit. The Nicola Valley Teachers’ Union has gone one step further, sending a resolution to the annual general meeting of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, asking the union to support teachers who want to exercise precautionary measures to limit exposure to radiation. The meeting is scheduled for Vancouver from Saturday, March 16, to Tuesday, March 19. The resolution notes a cancer-research agency with the World Health Organization has classified the radiation emitted by the wireless devices as a potential carcinogen. The American Academy of Pediatric Physicians has also warned of potential harm to children from overexposure to the radiation.

So, with official witnesses the record keepers require watching, City of Kamloops horticulturalist and arborist Karla Hoffman unwound the yellow measuring tape provided by Treysen’s mom, Shalyn. Hoffman stretched it out — and out — finally determining the width of the leaf to be 57.4 centimetres or, in inches, 22.5984, definitely wider than the Campbell River leaf. Next came the height, one that had to be measured from the top of the leaf to where the stem starts and then from the top of the stem to the bottom. Once again, Hoffman stretched out the tape, counting off 34.4 centimetres for the leaf portion — 13.54 inches — and another 31.8 centimetres for the stem itself. The last measurement brought the height of the leaf to 26 inches and, in the minds of Treysen and his schoolmates, is good enough to be named the new record holder. Hoffman told the class it was the largest

Year off to strong start in construction sector By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

For the second month in a row, the value of building permits issued in Kamloops has exceeded 2012 monthly totals. The city doled out $6.6-million worth of permits in February, compared to $4.2 million in the same period in 2012. But, bucking the trend of late, February’s

surge wasn’t driven by commercial construction. Commercial projects accounted for only $814,091 of the month’s totals, while residentialpermit values totaled $5.7 million. In 2012, residential construction accounted for only $1.3 million of permit value. Multi-family projects accounted for the greatest amount of permit value, at $3.1 million. Development and

engineering director Marvin Kwiatkowski said that’s a trend that will likely continue. “It’ll be higher than last year and you see that already,� he said. A number of larger projects have yet to come through and the city is predicting it will add about 220 multifamily dwelling units by year’s end. After a run of bigticket commercial projects in previous months, Kwiatkowski said there

aren’t many more major builds on the horizon. On the institutional side, however, the city

is expecting a $30-million bump from permits for the Royal Inland Hospital’s new clini-

cal- services and parking building some time this year. So far, the city has

Central America mining talk in Kamloops The Kamloops chapter of the Council of Canadians will host El Salvadoran activist Vidalina Morales de Gamez at the Smorgasbord Deli, 225 Seventh Ave., on Sunday March 10, at noon. The Council of Canadians is one of 10 organizations — mining justice, environmental, faith communities and public-interest groups — who have organized a continent-wide speaking tour by de Gamez, a member of the National Roundtable Against Metallic Mining in El Salvador.

LOCAL NEWS GO, BLAZERS, GO! Three-year-old Evelyn Wood and mom Kira are passionate Kamloops Blazer fans who took in the club’s recent victory over the Kelowna Rockets. The Blue and Orange are in a neck-and-neck battle with their rivals from the Okanagan for the Western Hockey League’s B.C. Division title, with this weekend’s home-andhome series likely settling the question of which team will wear the crown. Kamloops hosts Kelowna on Friday, March 8, at 7 p.m. at Interior Savings Centre before travelling to the Little Apple on Saturday, March 9. Kamloops’ final two games of the regular season will be a home-and-home series with Prince George on March 15 and March 16. Allen Douglas/KTW

‘Perfect storm’ led to boy’s journey By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Calling it a perfect storm of circumstances, Kamloops-Thompson school district Supt. Terry Sullivan said new procedures will be put in place to ensure a situation like the one the Steinley family experienced last week doesn’t happen again. Five-year-old Dainen Steinley was left behind by his day-care provider when staff in the front office of Bert Edwards science and technology school in North Kamloops said the youngster had not been at school that day when the child was actually playing in the schoolyard. Sullivan said an early dismissal, new staff at the school that day and Dainen being unaware only the front door would be unlocked led to no one noticing he had been forgotten.

The boy couldn’t get into the school when he tried and, in tears, walked the three kilometres to his house, a trip that took him several hours to complete. Sullivan said he has met with the boy’s parents, school principal,

office staff and teachers. “Everyone is upset,” Sullivan said. “We have checks and balances in place to make sure it doesn’t happen and what happened shouldn’t have happened.” New systems and

checks are being put into place to ensure that “even with a perfect storm, it doesn’t happen again,” Sullivan said. “And I think that’s what the parents wanted, too, just to be sure it doesn’t happen to another little guy.”

On death (sort of), parking tickets and peanut galleries More odds and sods that will never grow up to be full columns, but deserve some ink just because of the complete stupidity of the situations: • The federal government has apologized to Constance Herrington. It killed off the Chilliwack senior last month, sending a letter to her estate clawing back her HST/GST tax credit. It cancelled her Old Age and Canada Pension Plan cheques. When she contacted the vital-statistics agency to try and convince the staff that an error had been made, she was told she would have to pay $25 for an investigation to affirm she is, in fact, alive. Herrington’s case isn’t unusual, it seems. Last year, a 51-year-old woman in Ontario was also declared dead by the federal government, which stopped sending her a disability cheque she required for living expenses as she battled leukemia. Letters were also sent demanding payback of tax credits she had received during the time she was, in the eyes of the government, dead. A Kamloops woman also received an apology from the feds after it decided she had died. She was alerted to her situation when she inquired about her pension benefits. The opposite can happen, as well. My brother-in-law died more than two years ago and yet the government — both federal and provincial — seems to think he’s still alive. During the time since his death, his wife has received mail asking why he hasn’t renewed his driver’s licence,

DALE BASS Street

LEVEL advising him his gun permit is being amended and another one asking why he hasn’t paid his MPS premiums. Each time, she has called the agency involved and told the staff there to check their files again, because she did all the paperwork quite some time ago to let everyone who needs to know in the government that her husband — the love of her life who was taken from her suddenly — is, indeed, dead. And, each time, it causes unnecessary stress and frustration. • On to Christy Clark’s government and, no, this has nothing to do with ethnicgate, or whatever the media is calling it. Enough has been said about the unmitigated disaster that memo has caused to the soon-to-be-gone Liberal party in B.C. This has to do with the Kamloops courthouse and a parking ticket but it’s a precautionary note to our city councillors, too, as they go shopping for their new electronic meter stations. Part of my job now is to cover the courts and, last week, I was sent for what should have been a brief appearance by a local man who was making an application before the courts.

I put in enough money to cover a period longer than that which I thought this would require but, upon leaving to head back to work — five minutes after the ticket expired — I discovered something called a parking invoice under the windshield wiper blade. This is not a problem; it’s a cost of doing the job so I tried to pay the ticket, only to discover that, in the land of the much-vaunted B.C. Jobs Plan, buy-B.C. promotions, keep-itall-in-B.C. credo continually mouthed by our premier and her minions, this ticket required payment to an Ontario company. That company gets to set the ticket amount, as well, according to a government spokesman when I asked why it was $50, rising to $100 if not paid with one week. It also keeps a portion of the money, with the remainder going to the building — in this case, the Kamloops Law Courts. I’m still waiting to find out how much money we’re talking about here but must say paying a parking ticket obtained at a B.C. government building to an Ontario company — where no one ever responds to voicemail requests to call, as well — just seems wrong. • Donovan Cavers has been on city council long enough to have grown some thicker skin, which makes me wonder why, when he voted against something and reporters tweeted he had done so, he got defensive and likely thought they cared when he called them “the peanut gallery.” Not a good decision. dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Last Wednesday was Pink Shirt Day, or Anti-Bullying Day, as many people call it. It began six years ago at a high school in Nova Scotia. Most schools in this community and others across the nation held rallies, or drew posters, or hosted speakers. The Abbotsford Youth Comission did all three during its event. Even in the earliest elementary school grades, young students were learning about, and talking about, the issue of bullying. In countless offices and workplaces, people were wearing pink shirts, or at least something pink. Governments of all levels issued supportive messages. Social media was blanketed with the topic. There is no doubt that bullying is a high-profile issue, and such behaviour is roundly and soundly condemned by the vast majority of people. Yet, last week, we told readers about Cameron and his mom Shannon, who had the immense courage to tell their tale. Cameron has been the victim of bullying for some time. A month ago, his tormentors pushed the Grade 9 student into oncoming traffic, and he was nearly struck by a car. The bullies were suspended from school for a week. He and his mother would like to find that driver to thank him, and possibly, criminal charges can be laid. Hopefully, for Cameron, this is the end of it. Yet his situation does pose this critical question: If bullying is such an important issue in this society, and public awareness is so high, and so many people are so opposed to bullying behaviour, why are there still victims? As Cameron’s mom asks: “Where does it end and when will it stop?” —Abbotsford News

Make museum TALK part of new BACK arts centre Q&A

Singh surprised by criticism in letter Editor: I was a little taken aback by Rene Pellerin’s letter of Feb. 28 (‘Singh’s job rant rankles’), essentially criticizing me for comments I apologized for more than five years ago. To say that praising a potential increase of 35 jobs at Moly-cop is a slap in the face because I did not, in the same breath, make mention of the regrettable loss of 125 jobs at Domtar seems quite a stretch. I am indeed sad to see 125 people lose their jobs at Domtar and, perhaps, some of these people might find work at Moly-Cop. I also think it is very important that heavy industry be

held to very high environmental and health standards. I appreciate all of Pellerin’s efforts on behalf of the employees at Domtar and would suggest I am much more a friend of those efforts than someone who is opposed to them. I extend an offer to meet with Pellerin at his convenience to learn more about his issues and concerns. I can be reached by phone at 250-574-3509 and by email at asingh@kamloops.ca.

“I had been thinking that I should thank Gina and Anna for offering me the job at the salon almost 20 years ago. “It was an introduction to Kamloops and all it had to offer, such as meeting my future husband through the Caputo sisters. “Thank you, Gina. “We will miss you.” — posted by Arlana VanBuren “So proud of you, my sister. “Our hearts are broken, but we will carry on, as hard as it will be without you. “You didn’t deserve this. Love you forever.” — posted by Rosie Caputo Kirschner “I was very sad to hear about Gina, but very proud to have known her as I was her roommate in hair school. “I talked to Gina at the hair show in Kamloops in September. “I have a salon in Vernon and we talked about that and the good old days in hair school. “R.I.P. my friend.” — posted by Cyenthia Robertson

Stone’s letter a groan-inducing ‘pile of blather’ Editor: Todd Stone’s letter of Feb. 26 (‘Stone disputes columnist’s viewpoint’) made me groan due to the Kamloops-South Thompson B.C. Liberal candidate’s overt butt-kissing. Stone wrote “I know our government would love to provide more program grants for programs like it [Big Little Science Centre]. Obviously, tough choices are required in order to bal-

ance the budget and, hopefully, with a strengthened economy that will result from our government’s prudent financial management, government will be able to provide more funding soon.” What a pile of blather. Here’s a very simple solution based on a Globe & Mail headline of the same day: “Banks awash with profits.” Let me be the first to solve the government’s problem, not

“soon,” but right away by having Prime Minister Stephen Harper tax those bank profits. Now there would be an obvious source of immediate money to support programs like Big Little Science Centres across Canada. Stone’s is one letter the KTW editor should have edited for brevity. Christina Mader Kamloops

Editor: A temperature of 103 prevented me from taking part in the recent public hearing on the possibility of a new performing-arts centre. I hope it was well attended by ordinary people whose only vested interest is the evolution of our beautiful city. All of us will benefit from this landmark facility and the choice of tenants will influence our usage. Let’s include the jewel-box Kamloops Museum and Archives to create additional reasons to go there. Upgrades to their permanent exhibits, the development of the interactive children’s centre and world-class exhibits — like the current one on the 1936 Olympic Games in Berlin — show us the museum is ready to be taken seriously as a part of our cultural community. And it may be out of space. How fun to explore an exhibit that gives historical insight to a theatre production such as Billy Bishop Goes to War — right in the same building for the audience to browse before the show! Come on, ordinary people, let’s get behind this huge project. It needs us all and we’ll all benefit. Let’s encourage planners to include the museum in early conceptual thinking.

TRU law students make Moot point Opening a law school on campus last year led to Thompson Rivers University taking part in the Kawaskimhon National Aboriginal Rights Moot for the first time. Four students — Mardi Edmunds, Murray Sholty, Miranda Schmold and Chrystie Stewart — were in London,

Ont., to attend the annual event, created in 1993 by the Native Law Students Association at the University of Toronto to look at aboriginal legal issues. The subject chosen allowed the students access to a local expert as they prepared to discuss the transference of reserve lands into fee-simple holdings,

an issue former Tk’emlups Indian Band chief Manny Jules has been advocating for years. The moot is a non-competitive event designed to incorporate aboriginal values to resolve conflicts. The moot took place from Friday, March 1, to Sunday, March 3.

CITY HALL by council this week is “not ideal,” but is being supported by his organization. The charges, better known as DCCs, are a levy on new contruction the city uses to pay for water, road and other infrastructure projects that support new developments. Kamloops recalculates its DCCs every two years. The revised rates will increase charges on a single-family home to $9,525 from $9,342 and were developed in consultation with the CHBA. Association president Brian Hayashi said the rate change takes into account homebuilders’ concerns about keeping their products affordable and shows the city

The city’s arts commission is on the hunt for a new piece of art to highlight the entrance to Riverside Park. Kamloops city council has given the commission the go-ahead to start an expression of interest project for an “artistic entrance feature” for the park worth up to $75,000. The new piece is one of two being planned for the area. Another public artwork is slated to be displayed at the Lorne Street/Third Avenue roundabout. Both works will be funded using cash the city has set aside explicitly for public art.

The Merry Lark The merry, merry lark was up and singing; and the hare was out and feeding on the lea, And the merry, merry bells below were ringing, When my child’s laugh rang through me. Now the hare is snared and dead beside the snow yard, And the lark beside the dreary winter sea, And my baby in his cradle in the churchyard Waiteth there until the bells bring me.

MARCELLE JEANNE LEIBEL (nee CAES) Born in Ellezelles, Belgium, Nov. 9, 1922 – d. Feb 24, 2013 Kamloops, BC. She was best known by members of the Kamloops Heritage Bridge Club and volunteer at the Canadian Cancer Society. A strong opponent of the fluoridation of drinking water, she worked tirelessly for years creating the Kamloops Safe Water Foundation, to educate the public with tireless distribution of pamphlets at the Kamloops Farmers Market. She ultimately obtained with her group members enough signatures to have a referendum on the issue, preceded by a televised debate over the local Shaw Cable channel where they conscripted Dr. Hardy Limeback, then the head of the Dept. of Preventative Dentistry at the University of Toronto, who charged no fee and together succeeded in defeating the practice of fluoridating the Kamloops Water System on October 13, 2001. Another of her crowning achievements was attending the BC Senior’s Duplicate Bridge competition in Chilliwack in 1998, where she received a Gold medal with her team mate and good friend, Harry Larsen. She was a fighter in her life, taking on poverty and breast cancer, as well as numerous other physical ailments, overcoming all with a solid determination to conquer what stood in her way. This “will to survive” and to take on all health challenges took her beyond her 90th birthday, achieving personal independence and dignity in the process. Marcelle is survived by her four children: Jackie Bruce of Calgary, AB, Dan Leibel (Marilyn) of Langley, BC, Patrick Leibel (Sue Northcott) of Kamloops, BC, Mike Leibel of Calgary, AB. She also is survived by 10 grandchildren and six greatgrandchildren. Marcelle will be greatly missed by her family, long-time and dear to her heart companion Art Jones, her very dear friend Audrey Weeks, as well as many other long-time friends. A memorial will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home located at 285 Fortune Drive at 2:30 p.m. on Saturday, March 9th, 2013 with Janet Kusler officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Marcelle's memory to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Hospice Home, 72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC V2E 2S9.

KATHERINE ELLA NICHOLSON Sept. 16,1921 - February 23, 2013 Katherine Ella Nicholson passed away on February 23, 2013 at her home in Ridgeview Lodge with family by her side. She will be forever loved and remembered by her daughter Lynda (Allen) of Salmon Arm, sons Don (Doris) and Ken (Judy) of Kamloops, brother-in-law Eric of Tsawwassen, B.C. and sisters-in-law Terry and Marion of Vancouver B.C. In addition, there are numerous nieces and nephews and their families scattered across Western Canada and the United Kingdom. Ella was predeceased by her husband Ed, her parents Bill and Dorothy Yearley, her brothers Frank and Gordon and her granddaughter Twyla. Ella was born in Vancouver and raised in North Bend B.C. where she met her future husband Clarence Edmund (Ed) Nicholson. In 1944, after graduating as an R.N. from Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, Ella and Ed were married and moved to Kamloops. Ella quickly found work as a nurse. Over the course of her long career she worked at Tranquille T.B. Sanatorium, Burris Clinic, Royal Inland Hospital and in Community Health. She was the Àrst registered nurse to work weekend and holiday shifts in the Kamloops area Home Care program. She also worked for many years at Royal Inland Hospital in the Emergency Department, the Renal Dialysis Unit and the Psychiatric Unit before her retirement in 1991 at the age of 70. She established the Àrst Future Nurses Club in the area, was involved with the Reach to Recovery program for mastectomy patients and served three terms as president of the Kamloops Chapter of the RNABC. She received the Award of Honour from the Registered Nurses Association of British Columbia in 1987. After her retirement she continued to stay involved with the nursing profession through her alumni work and by meeting with student nurses. Ella loved Kamloops and gave freely of her time to support many local organizations. She was also very devoted to her children and was always available when they needed her. She was a member of the Nu Master Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi and for many years the Kamloops Golf and Country Club. The family would like to extend a special thank you to her colleagues and friends. Their support and friendship enabled Ella to remain connected to the activities and people she loved. The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at both the Renaissance Retirement Residence and Ridgeview Lodge. Their care and dedication helped to make Ella’s life full and enjoyable in later years. A celebration of Ella’s life will be held at 1:30 pm Saturday, May 4, 2013 at St. Paul’s Cathedral in Kamloops.

He served in the military and after being discharged he started a career of professional driving, hauling everything from logs, equipment, people and freight. He retired in 1995 with a distinguished professional driving career and was deserving of a well earned rest. Retirement was sweet with his beloved wife Joan.

Jim’s caring, tender, humourous qualities made him the loving gentle man that he was.

MLA wants truck restriction on Highway 5A By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

As his political career winds down, outgoing Kamloops-South Thompson Liberal MLA Kevin Krueger is taking another stab at getting commercial trucks off Highway 5A. In the legislature on Monday, March 4, Krueger tabled a petition with more than 1,400 signatures gathered from homes along the highway between Kamloops and Merritt. Krueger said volunteers who collected the signatures “knocked on more than 95 per cent of all households adjacent to Highway 5A and they only had six people turn them down.” He said it shows the support for a restriction,

which would limit commercial truck traffic to local vehicles. Krueger said he would also like to see lower speed limits placed on the remaining trucks. Though he’s been calling for it since 2010, the government has been reluctant to take Krueger up on such a ban, which would be the first of its

kind in the province. “I know that it’s a precedent that the ministry is reluctant to set and, yet, people are terrified of the truck traffic on that highway, and there is a great alternative in the Coquihalla,” Krueger said. “We’re beseeching government to do this.” Krueger said government doesn’t need to

legislate a ban — which it wouldn’t have time to do before the writ drops for the May 14 provincial election — but can enact it through regulation. He plans to write Transportation Minister Mark Polak and Premier Christy Clark, encouraging them to give the plan another look. Krueger said the pro-

posal will save money because a truckless Highway 5A will require less maintenance and a decreased police presence. If a ban inspires other communities along numbered highways to make similar requests, Krueger said the Kamloops situation could be used as a benchmark to measure the severity of the situation.

Battle Royale SPORTS If the Kamloops Blazers and Victoria Royals meet in the first round of the WHL playoffs — look out. There were 156 penalty minutes in total, 93 of them assessed to Victoria in the third period, in a 6-0 win for Kamloops at Interior Savings Centre on Tuesday, March 5. The most controversial point of the game came in the third period when Tim Traber of the Royals jumped Kale Kessy of the Blazers and began choking him with his own jersey. Kessy, by many player accounts, was rendered unconscious. Victoria head coach Dave Lowry, Traber and Keegan Kanzig will be suspended by the WHL for their roles in the team’s third-period indiscipline. Should the Blazers finish second in the B.C.

Corryn Brown’s Kamloops rink will not qualify for the playoffs at the World Junior Curling Championships, but it will go home with North American bragging rights. Team Canada — skip Brown, third Erin Pincott, second Samantha Fisher, lead Sydney Fraser, alternate Cathlia Ward and coach Ken Brown — beat the U.S. 10-4 on Tuesday, March 5, in Sochi, Russia. “We definitely played a little more

aggressive, put a little more rocks in play and watched how things ended up,” Brown said. “We have nothing to lose, to be honest, so we might as well give it everything we’ve got.” Earlier Tuesday, Switzerland edged Canada 4-3. Brown, 2-5, will wrap round-robin play today (March 7) with draws against Norway and Sweden. Scotland, skipped by defending champion Hannah Fleming, remains the only unbeaten team at 8-0,

with Sayaka Yoshimura of Japan (5-2), Alina Kovaleva of Russia (5-3) and Zuzana Hajkova of the Czech Republic (4-3) rounding out the top four. On the men’s side, Canadian skip Matt Dunstone will finish round-robin play today. The Manitoban rink can clinch a playoff berth with a win against against China. Canada moved its record to 6-2 with a 9-6 victory over Norway on Wednesday, March 6. — with files from Al Cameron, curling.ca

ORTH OF Savona above Kamloops Lake, Red Lake is long, about 270 acres in size and orientated roughly northwest. It has a few islands and a narrows in the center. There are three public access points located on the southern shore. Red Lake is one of the lakes that has made the Kamloops region world famous for small-lakes fishing. It is stocked with rainbow and eastern brook trout, which are genetically triploid. That genetic alteration results in fish never going through a spawning cycle, allowing them to grow to

an exceptional size. Unfortunately, the lake suffers from winter oxygen depletion, which kills many fish. Another problem was the difficulty anglers had in accessing the lake due to the steepness of the shoreline or exclusion through private property. In spite of this, Red Lake supports about 3,000 angler days annually. Works undertaken through the co-operation and support of a number of agencies has helped with those problems and, combined with an oxygen-injection project, may just transform the lake into a very productive one.

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.

Other significant contributors to works at Red Lake included the Highland Valley Enhancement Fund, Terasen Gas (Fortis BC), the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and the BC Wildlife Federation. The Kamloops and District Fish and Game Association provided coordination, funding and considerable groundwork. In addition to funding efforts, a large amount of time was used in obtaining permits and in creating co-operative efforts with a multitude of agencies. Those included sev-

eral ministry branches of forests, lands and natural resource operations, BC Hydro, land owners, a surveyor, a faller, a heavyequipment operator and an archeologist. As work was to begin, one of the access areas became a designated archeological site. More permitting with attached work conditions was required and was obtained with the assistance and support of the Skeetchestn Indian Band. Access improvements are the work of Bob Goldie and his crew of Kamloops and District Fish and Game Association members.

be much more complicated and took three years. The northernmost access is a winter site used to reach the lake only when shore mud and vegetation are frozen. It is found at kilometer 39 on the Tranquille-Criss Creek (Red Lake) Road as measured from its start at Tranquille Farms in Kamloops. That site has had the parking area increased, levelled and gravelled with a pit toilet installed. The middle site has had the slope reduced, the road realigned, widened and gravelled and a toilet installed. To find this boatlaunch location, continue southwest from the first site about a kilometer onto Red Lake Drive and then to Strom Place Road.

The southernmost launch site was not improved as it is too cramped between the lake, the road and rock cliffs. Complementing access improvements is a hypolimnetic oxygen-injection system installed in Red Lake by Steve Maricle and Andrew Klassen, the Kamloops region’s Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations fisheries biologists. Hypolimnetic injection is a new procedure using pure oxygen extracted from air and piped directly into the lake. A previous solution to low oxygen levels were aerolater systems, which sprayed water above the lake surface to mix with air. However, this method, still used on seven other lakes in the region, cre-

ates large openings in the ice requiring temporary signage and fencing each winter. The oxygen-injection method is designed to eliminate the danger of thin ice or open water and the need for many hours of fencing work. At the heart of the lakeside oxygen-generation process is zeolite, a microporous aluminosilicate mineral. It is a naturally occurring substance with wide and fascinating uses in industry. The generation system uses compressed air forced into zeolite, which separates oxygen from nitrogen due to molecule size difference. Oxygen is retained, then pumped as very fine bubbles through a diffuser below the lake surface. The diffuser was installed with the use of a helicopter carrying the

huge device out to where divers anchored it to the bottom with large weights and cables. Just the top portion of the diffuser shows at the lake surface, while the four chambered outlet

pipes below ensure a wide distribution of oxygenated water when needed. With oxygen injection, regular winter survival of Red Lake fish is expected to increase fishing activity to 10,000 angler days,

generating about $1 million worth of revenue for the local economy. It is likely that Red Lake will now be mentioned often in angling circles and should create some pleasant memories

from around the family dining table. Geoff Swannell is with the Kamloops and District Fish and Game Association. Go online to kamloopsthisweek.com to view more photos.

‘You don’t have to be a cowboy to enjoy the festival’ By Tim Petruk STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

M

ARK MCMILLAN WANTS TO MAKE ONE THING PERFECTLY CLEAR: THE KAMLOOPS COWBOY FESTIVAL IS NOT JUST FOR COWBOYS.

It is for regular townspeople, mysterious loners on horseback and everyone else. “You don’t have to be a cowboy to enjoy the festival,” McMillan, the president of the B.C. Cowboy Heritage Society and the chairman of the festival, told KTW. “It’s put on by cowboys for the general public.”

Need extra cash?

Call us at 250-374-0462 and we’ll get you on your way to making money.

The festival, in its 17th year, begins today (March 7) and runs through Sunday, making use of two Aberdeen venues — the Kamloops Convention Centre and the Calvary Community Church. There will be two stages running simultaneously all weekend, McMillan said, featuring cowboy poetry and cowboy music.

That’s cowboy music, not country music — another thing about which McMillan wants to be perfectly clear. “Country music is basically love songs,” he said, pointing out a very thin, bandana-wearing line riding off into the sunset with a scowl on its face. XSee EXPECT B2

“Cowboy music is about riding horses and moving cattle — the life of a cowboy.” McMillan said the festival generally sees most attendees come from the other side of the Rockies, where the buffalo roam, but that’s starting to change. “I’m going to say 70, maybe 75 per cent of the crowd is from Alberta,” he said. “This year, we’re getting more locals. But, Albertans are still pretty big for us.” And, McMillan said, some of those Albertans are extremely loyal to the festival. “We have our people that come back every year,” he said. “They’re true followers.” In addition to the performances on stage, the festival also features a 50-booth trade show, a juried art show and artist workshops. “We describe it as good, clean family entertainment,” he said. “There’s tons of humour, and just the type of entertainment anybody could enjoy.” For more information on the festival, including a full schedule of events, log on to bcchs.com/ festival/html.

KSO and Telus team up for kids

Are you Disco Stu? The Kamloops Eagles Club is looking for a few good funky men and women. On Friday, March 22, the club is hosting a Disco Fever party — and they need dress-up volunteers to help make it work. If you still have your bell bottoms, drop by the club — 755 Tranquille Rd. — on Saturday, March 9, at 2 p.m. for a disco-volunteer recruiting meeting. One caveat: You must attend the meeting dressed in disco garb. So important is this fact that it is underlined and in bold print on the invitation sent out by the club. If you don’t want to volunteer to be a time traveller but are still interested in attending the disco party later this month, tickets to the 19-plus event are $10 in advance and $15 at the door and can be had by stopping by the Eagles Club on the North Shore.

A year ago, the Kamloops Symphony received a substantial grant from Telus for a program to help educate children. Last month, it became a reality as the program got off the ground. Symphony general manager Kathy Humphries said she found out about the telecom giant’s newly created communityboard grant program and applied with a plan to engage Grade 4 students through a handson experience linking sound and science. Humphries said she chose Grade 4 because sound is part of the science curriculum at that level. It paid off in the form of a $10,000 grant last year from the Telus Thompson-Okanagan Community Board. The program — which involves the Kamloops Symphony,

the Big Little Science Centre and School District 73 — launched in February to rave reviews from students and teachers. Two classes can be accommodated during each 90-minute time period, with the sessions taking place at the Big Little Science Centre. Classes move between a science demonstration in one classroom, an instrumentmaking workshop in another classroom and a performance ensemble from the Kamloops Symphony. At each station, scientific concepts are demonstrated and discussed — through the use of lab equipment, the construction of basic instruments and the classical-music performance. More than 400 students have signed up so far, Humphries said, representing interest

from 13 schools across the district. Because of the grant from Telus, there is no

charge to the students. Teachers of Grade 4 students are encouraged to contact the Kamloops

ners — and the study links chocolate consumption to better cognitive abilities. This and other studies have shown chocolate not only improves brain function, but has several other health benefits as well. KTW readers know better brain and overall health mean much better mental health. So, why are we not told to eat more chocolate? Like the old expression goes, “The left hand giveth and the right hand taketh away.” Here is the dilemma: Not all chocolate is good for you. The sugar-rich, highcalorie, processed and popular milk chocolate (most common at Easter and on Valentine’s Day) is actually very unhealthy and provides no health benefits at all — except for fun and that is at least something.

It is cocoa-based chocolate, or dark chocolate, that has at least 70 per cent cocoa content — and, preferably, no added sugar — that has health and mentalhealth benefits. Dark chocolate comes from the seeds of the Theobroma cacao tree and, like tea, it is high in flavanols, which are praised for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Choose a flavanolrich dark chocolate for Easter. Granted, it is an acquired taste and many people (especially kids on Easter morning) will not thank you for the dark chocolate, but that is the time to start teaching children to appreciate and enjoy the healthy version over the high-cholesterol, highfat, high-sugar milk chocolate.

ounce of high-quality dark chocolate three times a month, they will have a 26 per cent lower risk of developing heart failure. One to two servings a week lowered the risk to by 32 per cent. After that, health benefits are replaced by health risks and moderation is the key. People who had dark chocolate regularly saw their blood pressure drop and the risk and occurrence of stroke reduced significantly. Dark chocolate also appears to lower cholesterol — a huge surprise to the medical community when this was discovered, causing those in the science field to re-think lipids and fats. Cocoa intake has also been found to dramatically improve mood, although the risk is that people will start to self-medicate mood with high-calorie chocolate.

Too much chocolate at one time or consumed too often will cause a sugar low and mild depression. As if that is not enough positive impact, people with mild cognitive impairment appear to benefit from upping their chocolate intake. And, strangely enough, those who regularly ate dark, cocoa-rich chocolate were found to have a lower bodymass index. Sorry if you like the sweet milkchocolate treats because that stuff will kill you, but develop a taste for moderate amounts of dark chocolate — an ounce three times a month — and watch you physical and mental health improve! Until next time, enjoy your dark chocolate treats this Easter and send us your questions or comments to kamloops@cmha.bc.ca because we always love to hear from you.

ROWING UP ABOVE A BUTCHER SHOP HAD ITS MOMENTS. Not, perhaps, great moments. But, for the indelibility of its sights and smells — all of which travelled up the creak of wooden stairs that clung to the outside of the red brick building to the second floor where we lived — impossible to forget. This was a place where a teenaged determination to become vegetarian lasted fewer than three days, upon discovering that simply voiding meat from a butcher-shop diet not only left one with nothing but peanut butter and bread, but also scouring looks from the maker of the bacon. Among things I can-stillsmell-but-never-actually-ate were boiled calf brains, pickled pigs feet and lard on toast.

Transfer to the bowl of a food processor fitted with a blade attachment. Cut the butter and lard into half-inch pieces and add them evenly on top of the flour. Cover and pulse in eight one-second bursts, until the fat is cut into the flour and the mixture is coarse and crumbly. Uncover and sprinkle one third of a cup of the ice water over top. Cover and pulse three times. Repeat with another one-third cup of water. Pulse four or five times, until the mixture begins to come together. If it doesn’t, add a little more water and pulse again. Transfer dough onto a work surface, gather into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour. Assembly: Divide dough in half and refrigerate one part.

TRAVEL

The Swiss adventures of Sherlock Holmes “It is, indeed, a fearful place. The torrent, swollen by the melting snow, plunges into a tremendous abyss, from which the spray rolls up like the smoke from a burning house.” By James Ross TRAVEL WRITERS’ TALES travelwriterstales.com

I stand atop Reichenbach Falls and watch the raging waters tumble 120 metres into the black-rock chasm below. I listen to the booming roar of the water and feel the fresh spray on my face. My wife and I were touring Switzerland, passing by car from Interlaken to Lucerne, when I had insisted on a little detour near Meiringen to the site of the spectacular falls, the place where Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle had tried to kill off his fictitious super-sleuth in the story The Adventure of the Final Problem. The walking path along the cliffside might now be a little better maintained. Otherwise, I imagine, not much has changed from the scene that Conan Doyle

described on May 4, 1891. It was here that Holmes met his archenemy, Professor Moriarty, and, after a fierce fight, the two had purportedly fallen to their deaths. One would suspect that, had Holmes been as pugilistically adept as Robert Downey Jr. in the latest Holmes’ film adaptations, he would have had little problem coping with an aging villain. And perhaps he really didn’t. Faced with a great public outcry, Conan Doyle was forced to alter his narrative plan and bring Holmes back from the abyss, back for further adventures on the pages of The Strand Magazine. He resurrected his nemesis by claiming that Holmes had managed to grab a tuft of grass during the fall into the “dreadful cauldron” and so had lived to

solve another mystery. A memorial plaque at a viewpoint reminds visitors of the fictitious incident. Even without its literary connection, the beauty and wildness of the waterfalls would make Reichenbach a worthwhile side trip. From a parking lot at the hotel below, a short trek accesses the three viewing terraces that offer breath-taking views. A railway tram also transports visitors alongside the raging waters of the Reichenbach to the uppermost waterfall. The charming Swiss town of Meiringen is, for many Holmes fans, a kind of Mecca. Set in the heart of the Hasliberg hiking region, the town has long been a favourite mountain walking resort. Conan Doyle stayed here many times, taking up residence at the Park Hotel Du Savage, and used it as lodging for Holmes and Watson in The Adventure of the Final Problem. Near the hotel is Meiringen’s town

square, refurbished in the 1980s and renamed Conan Doyle Place. A statue of Holmes sits contemplatively on a park bench and the Sherlock Holmes Museum can be found in the basement of a quaint English chapel. The centrepiece of the museum is a life-size replica of the sitting room at 221B Baker Street, put together with scrupulous accuracy. Many items are strewn around, including Holmes’ violin, a bust of the detective used to decoy his enemies and a copy of The Times left on the floor in an attempt to convey the impression that Holmes and Watson had only moments before gone out. It might be fair to ask, other than being the background for one Holmes story, why there is such a fascination for the great detective here in Switzerland, so far from his London home. Well, in a country renowned for its clockwork efficiency, order and logic, the answer is elementary, my dear Watson.

FAITH

Finding solidarity for the good of everyone By Paul Corcoran SPECIAL TO KTW editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

AM SURE WE have all seen the ads by World Vision, Foster Parents Plan and others that pull at our heart strings by showing the poor and hungry children of the Southern Hemisphere. I dare say there is not one person who has not felt some pain, guilt, distress, compassion or similar emotion when they have seen these pictures. That’s good because it shows that we care. Jesus calls us to much more than just a fleeting response. He calls us to use this grace we have to feel the pain of others to move forward and use our minds as well and ask the uncomfort-

able questions. Why are the majority of the people in the Southern Hemisphere so poor compared with most of the population in the Northern Hemisphere? Is there anything about our socioeconomic systems that allow this disparity? These are difficult questions for us to ask because they may cause us to rethink some of the assumptions we may have held for a lifetime. This is exactly what Jesus calls us to do when he says (John 12: 24-25), “Very truly I tell you unless a grain of wheat falls to the earth and dies, it remains just a single grain; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. “Those who love their life lose it and those who hate their life in this world will keep

it for eternal life.” This transformed life starts now, when we can let go of our assumptions and put the poor and disadvantaged first. How are we to do this? The first step is to stand in solidarity with Jesus and the poor. What exactly is this solidarity? Here is a good definition from Pope JohnPaul II in his encyclical On Social Concerns: “Solidarity helps us to see the other, whether a person, people or nation . . . as our neighbor . . . on par with ourselves.” In the same encyclical, he states solidarity “is not a vague feeling of compassion or shallow distress. “On the contrary, it is a firm and preserving determination to commit oneself to the com-

mon good; that is to say to the good of all and each individual because we are really responsible for all.” In short, solidarity is walking with the other — not paternalistically leading from the front or pushing from behind, rather simply walking with and sharing another’s struggles and joys. In this light we see the incarnation as an act of solidarity. God sent His son to be one of us — to share our sorrows and our joys. We, too, are called to be in solidarity with each other. We have a special responsibility to be in solidarity with the poor wherever they may be; indeed we are to realize a preferential option for the poor. That is we are to put the poor first, for exam-

ple when we consider the socioeconomic policies of our governments and institutions our first question should be, how will this particular policy or decision affect the poor both at home and abroad? We are asked to be in solidarity with the people of the Southern Hemisphere by sharing of our means. Jesus challenges us to die a little to ourselves so we can bear fruit for others. Solidarity is a process. Just as Christ did not fulfill his ministry in one day but took a life time, so too should we take time to foster a relationship with the poor through learning and understanding. The poor of the Southern Hemisphere do not ask for our favour, rather they chal-
