Shooting victim fingers Independent Soldiers dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Glenn Powell is relying on friends to protect him as he recovers from a shooting Kamloops RCMP say was targeted. The 48-year-old Kamloops man said he “phoned some exbusiness contacts” after checking himself out of Royal Inland Hospital on Sunday, May 12, and headed out of town. “I called some of the [Hells] Angels I know because I used to deal for them, and one of the tenants I had is the son of one of the Angels, and they said they’d be looking after me,” Powell said. On Saturday night (May 11), Powell said, he was shot in the right knee after a confrontation that

began in the carport of his Fairview Avenue home, where he and his band, Project Et3rnity, were rehearsing. Powell said the incident began when three men approached and told him they needed to talk. Powell said one man remained in the living room of the North Shore house, while he and the other two men went into the bathroom. Powell said he knew the men to be members of the Independent Soldiers gang, noting he had made a drug purchase from them about six weeks before. “They were talking and told me I was going to start selling for them and telling me to be afraid and said, ‘You’re not going to fight back,’”

Powell said. “So, I stood up and started fighting. I was cracked in the skull three times.” Powell said one of the men levelled a small handgun — which he thought might have been a .22 — at his face. “I hit his arm and that’s how I got shot in the leg,” Powell said, adding he escaped from the bathroom and the fighting continued in the hallway, with his knee bleeding, “until my friends managed to evict them.” Powell explained why he left the hospital after surgery to repair his knee. “There’s no real protection there. I know who these people are and they could just walk in.” He added the car he left the hospital in was followed by people in

another vehicle. Powell said he met the men through a former tenant, claiming he purchased drugs from them once. The former computer technician acknowledged he has dealt drugs in the past, but said he decided to stop because he gained a high profile promoting a music festival at Riverside Park on April 20, an unofficial counterculture holiday (420) for proponents of marijuana legalization and use. Powell expressed anger at newspaper reports he and his friends are no co-operating with police. “I told them everything I know,” he said, including the names he knew the two attackers to go by — A.J. and Kenny. He said he didn’t know last names.

Powell also told police he didn’t want to stay in the hospital. “And,” he said, “they told me I’d be safe at home.” Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said police do not comment on witness or victim comments. Hours after the shooting, Kamloops RCMP Sgt. Dave Prentice released basic information about the incident. Prentice said a 48-year-old man was recovering in Royal Inland Hospital after being shot in the leg on Saturday night. Prentice said Mounties were initially responding to a

10:28 p.m. call that a man had been shot in the face. When officers arrived at the home, they learned the man had been shot in the leg. His injuries are non-life-threatening. Police say the shooting was a targeted attack and investigators are seeking two men who managed to escape after the attack. A police dog was used to try to find the suspects and the major-crimes unit continues with the matter. Anybody with information on the shooting is asked to call the Kamloops RCMP at 250-8283000.

MENTORING GAINS MOMENTUM By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

I

T’S ANOTHER DAY OF SCHOOL FOR DAKODA KELM. Then Micaela Millar arrives and it’s no longer just another day for the Grade 1 student. On the day KTW visited at Bert Edwards science and technology school, it meant some one-on-one time with Micaela in the schoolyard, playing on the equipment, talking and having fun. Dakoda says Micaela is cool and she reciprocates the feeling. “I don’t think anyone could not like Dakoda,� Micaela shouts out as she races down the school hallway to keep up with the young ball of energy. Micaela, a student in police and justice studies at Thompson Rivers University, volunteers an hour every week to spend time with Dakoda through an in-school mentoring program of Big Brothers Big Sisters Kamloops. More than 100 youngsters in kindergarten to Grade 7 are involved in the endeavour, said program co-ordinator Kaila McGann.

Another one is offered for students in secondary school. The program in which Dakoda is enrolled is open to any child between the ages of six and 12 who is referred to it because they might just need a bit of extra attention once in a while. It’s not designed to boost academic knowledge, but to increase self-confidence, McGann said. Feedback shows success, said Tammy Webb, a supervisor who works with the program. “We get rave reviews. People see improvement in all areas. They look forward to school. They look forward to doing things,� she said. The agency has an agreement with the school district and Our Lady of Perpetual Help school to provide the program, McGann said. Referrals can be made by teachers or parents and schools have been supportive in allowing the child and volunteer to use their facilities if they wish. Sometimes it might be baking something in the kitchen, McGann said. Other times it might be heading to the library to read or into the playground to giggle and play. The focus is on low or no-cost activities, although volunteers will at times buy something special for a holiday or birthday. If they need craft or baking supplies, the agency provides them.

Anyone can volunteer once they have a criminal-record check and agree to commit for at least three months. McGann said secondary-school students will often volunteer because they have their eye on a future career working with children and they can get credit for their community activity. The program is paid for by funds provided by the United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo. Amber Harding, communications and resource-development associate with the United Way, said the program is just one of many examples of the kinds of projects the agency supports. The umbrella organization is more than just a fundraiser, she said. “United Way is committed to making the community the best that it can be,� Harding said. “One of the ways we do this is by investing in, and partnering with, programs and initiatives that ensure children and youth are doing well in school. Our North Thompson communityimpact council also recently confirmed investment in this same program in Clearwater.� The United Way has launched a two-week campaign called Who We Are, designed to promote the many works it is involved in and the success stories it helps agencies and organizations create. The campaign will run to May 23.

North Thompson on rise By Andrea Klassen STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

If the amount of rain forecast to hit the Tournament Capital today (May 14) actually falls, the North Thompson River could once again hit 10-year highs. While the B.C. River Forecast Centre has pulled back its highstreamflow advisories for the Salmon River, Coldwater River and Chase Creek, forecaster Dave Campbell said water from those tributaries is now making its way into the Thompson system.

“With the hot weather we had last week, we had high flows, but we chewed through a lot of the snow at mid-elevation, so some of the streams have really been improving over the last few days,” he said. Water flowing from the smaller rivers has already pushed the North Thompson River to its average peak levels, while extra precipitation in the forecast for the start of the week could take it higher, Campbell said. “Last year I think we saw about a one-in-10 or one-in-20 year

flow,” Campbell said. “We could be getting up into that territory again in the next few days.” The rise will likely be brief, however. Campbell said if the river does hit the 10-year peak, it should be back to normal by Thursday, May 16. The South Thompson River, which rises more slowly, is still below its average peak, which Campbell said is normal for this time of year. That river usually does not hit its peak until mid-June.

Ajax’s health risk at issue STAFF REPORTER andrea@kamloopsthisweek.com

Kamloopsians opposed to the proposed Ajax mine are raising questions about the Interior Health Authority’s ability to judge whether the project poses a health risk after gaining access to a letter that says the group lacks some of the “technical expertise” needed for an assessment. In a letter to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) in July 2012, IHA environmental-health officer Misty Palm wrote that the health authority hadn’t been able to track down better management practices — mitigation strategies that are proven to work in situations like Ajax’s — that it could use to judge the health risk posed by the mine. “It is beyond the scope of our regional health authority to guide the creation of defensible better practices,” Palm wrote.

Instead, she recommended the EAO bring in third-party consultants to make up for the gaps in the IHA’s knowledge base. But, the Kamloops Area Preservation Association (KAPA) is worried the EAO is ignoring the health authority’s request. “As of March 13 of this year, this wasn’t the case because Scott Bailey of the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office told the Kamloops Community Advisory Group meeting that day that the EAO was considering contracting third-party expertise to ensure that the right scientific questions are being asked about the mine’s potential impacts on human health,” said KAPA member John Schleiermacher in a press release. Without third-party consultation, Scleiermacher is concerned any health-impact studies done by mine proponents KGHM Ajax will lack scientific rigour. Ivor Norlin, health-protection

SAVE UP TO

manager for the Interior Health Authority, told KTW he isn’t aware if the EAO has followed up. “But, we hope to see that when the formal application comes in,” Norlin said, noting the IHA wants consultants involved because there’s so little precedent for a mine like Ajax. “We don’t have an example of a large-scale copper mine in operation in such close proximity to an urban area like Kamloops and our region.” If the EAO doesn’t hire a consultant, Norlin said, it’s difficult to determine at this stage whether the IHA can assess the health risks of the mine without extra help. “It’s possible we could do the work if they [KGHM Ajax] were able to provide defensible bettermanagement practices that have been employed elsewhere, either in Canada or the United States or internationally,” he said. “But, we weren’t sure those existed, at least at that stage.”

Community needs resilience By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Don’t say Jessica Vliegenthart has overcome her disability. She hasn’t — and she’s OK with that. The Kamloops athlete who broke her back eight years ago fighting forest fires in the Northwest Territories told a crowd on Thursday, May 9, that when she reads stories about herself that say she has made that accomplishment, she’s unhappy. “This is news to me. I’m still in this chair,” she told the audience at the annual United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo communityspirit lunch. The accident fighting fires left her with a

spinal-cord injury, two broken thoracic vertebrae and 18 broken ribs. “Disability can be young,” she said. “Disability can be strong and disability can be successful.” An active athlete, Vliegenthart returned from seven months in hospital to her hometown — the Tournament Capital of Canada — expecting to find plenty of options to get out and again be active and athletic. “There were none,” she said, aside from one team of wheelchair basketball players with no capacity to expand to include her. “I was alone,” she said. “Where were the girls that looked like me? So, the second I felt strong enough, I left

Kamloops and went to a place I never thought I’d live — Vancouver.” She found plenty of adaptive-sports opportunities and soon found herself on the road to the Paralympics in basketball, all while studying law. That pairing is what fed her speech to the crowd, the simple reality that community needs resilience and resilience needs community. When Vliegenthart started her law program and wondered if she had what it would take to succeed, her athlete friends were there to remind her she was strong, capable and could conquer those fears. And, she said, as she trained for the Paralympics in 2012,

it was her law-student friends who cheered her on, telling her she was strong, capable and could do it. Now back in Kamloops articling at Fulton and Company, Vliegenhart contacted the Kamloops Blazers Sports Society for help in creating the Kamloops Adapted Sports Association. The society asked the United Way for help, a partnership was born and Vliegenhart has her association ready to welcome others who want to sink the three-pointers, race around a track and take on any athletic endeavour possible. “I don’t want an athlete with a disability to have to leave Kamloops,” she said. “Doesn’t that sound

crazy? Leave Kamloops? “It’s the Tournament Capital of Canada.”

Those funds end up here Some of the more than $2.2 million raised in the last United Way Thompson Nicola Cariboo campaign has been distributed. While the annual allocation of funds to specific organizations has been ongoing, the United Way also dedicates money for projects that have specific community impact in three areas — health, poverty and children. At a special lunch on Thursday, May 9, at Thompson Rivers University, the United Way celebrated giving $806,500 to a variety of organizations, with 40 per cent going to those that work on healthy people and strong communities, 29 per cent to those that address poverty and all it brings with it and 31 per cent to groups that support children. Money for each goes to specific programs. For example, the Kamloops Brain Injury Association is receiving financial support to help build capacity and sustainability in its life-skills program, the Street School is getting money to provide a literacy outreach worker and Big Brothers Big Sisters Kamloops has received money for its in-school mentoring program.

Discarded needles found throughout the city are picked up by an outreach worker with the ASK Wellness Centre. The reason is simple, said Ken Salter, the guy who does it. “We have a needle exchange,” he said. “They’re probably our needles.” A call from the public had Salter headed to Riverside Park this past weekend after several discarded needles were noticed. Salter said he tries to keep an eye on the area and others on his regular travels through the city as he interacts with and provides support to the marginalized. Kamloops RCMP Staff Sgt. Grant Learned said police do not have a mandate to patrol parks for needles, but noted officers will remove them if they come across them. All cruisers are equipped with the proper safety containers for this purpose.

Holman Road is an uncontrolled intersection with the highway, providing access to Riverview RV and Mobile Home Park. Kamloops RCMP said witnesses saw the northbound Impala cross from Holman to head west on the TransCanada Highway when it crossed in front of the eastbound Sienna. The Sienna hit the

driver’s side of the Impala. The witnesses said the man was following other family members who had already crossed and were heading down the highway. Police said the man died instantly, while his passengers and the one person in the Sienna had non-life threatening injuries. The man’s identity

has not been released. The coroner’s office was called in to help with the investigation. Police said speed and alcohol are not considered to be factors, the weather was clear, everyone had their seatbelts on and the airbags deployed properly in both vehicles, reducing trauma to the other occupants. No charges are anticipated.

Go ahead, enjoy being a risk-taker — but safely By Cavelle Layes STAFF REPORTER reporter@kamloopsthisweek.com

One moment, one bad decision — that is all it takes to forever change your life. This was the message shared with high-school students at Beattie School of The Arts on Friday, May 10.

summer job when he jumped on his bike, turned on his iPod and headed out. Gieni didn’t think twice about not wearing a helmet, nor did he even consider the fact he did not inspect his bike before riding. In fact, he hardly ever checked his bike.

Kyle Gieni knows the dangers of taking risks without taking the necessary precautions and he is touring Canada, sharing his story with students. Cavelle Layes/KTW

Kyle Gieni had just completed his second year of applied justice and had enlisted in the Canadian Forces. He was on his way to an interview for a

Gieni was riding down a bike path just off the highway when he realized the brakes were not working, causing him to lose control and fall.

That was the last time Gieni would ever be able to walk, let alone ride a bike. After breaking his back and suffering brain injuries, Gieni has since lived as a paraplegic. He received an honourable discharge from the Canadian Forces and said it was difficult for him to return to school. Gieni now spends his time visiting schools across Canada to share his story. His message, however, is a little different than most. Being an adrenaline junkie of sorts, he understands most teenagers will not completely give up risktaking. Which is why Gieni stresses that, when teens take risks, they should do so safely. Go rock climbing, snowboarding, skateboarding, Gieni told Beattie students — but take the necessary precautions. Wear a helmet, he said, stay on marked trails, look before diving, bring an avalanche kit, take the proper courses. “Without risks, you

Open-fire restrictions in effect tomorrow While a wildfire raging in the Ashcroft area has led to evacuations, restrictions on the size of open fires in the Kamloops area will come into effective on Wednesday, May 15. This prohibition applies to all areas of the Kamloops Fire Centre, except the Clearwater and Salmon Arm fire zones, which will be subject to the same restrictions as of June 15, when all open burning will be prohibited throughout the Kamloops Fire Centre. Since April 1, Kamloops Fire Centre crews have responded to 43 human-caused wildfires, the largest of which — the Spatsum Creek blaze near Ashcroft — has grown to about 1,400 hectares in size. Anyone conducting Category 2 or 3 fires outside of the Clearwater and Salmon Arm zones must extinguish any such fires by noon tomorrow. The prohibition will remain in effect until Oct. 15 or until further notice. A map of the affected areas is available online http://ow.ly/kewIE.

Specifically, prohibited activities include: • The burning of any waste, slash or other materials (piled or unpiled). • The burning of more than one open fire of any size at the same time. • The burning of recreational and ceremonial fires that exceed the size specified for campfires (0.5 m x 0.5 m). • Stubble or grass fires of any size over any area. • The use of fireworks, sky lanterns or burning barrels of any size or description. The prohibition does not ban campfires that are a half-metre high by a half-metre wide (or smaller) and does not apply to cooking stoves that use gas, propane or briquettes. The Kamloops Fire Centre stretches from the northern border of Wells Gray Park near Blue River to the U.S. border to the south, and from the Bridge River Glacier west of Gold Bridge to the Monashee Mountains east of Lumby.

would be in a state of hyper-paralysis,” Gieni said. “But, the key is paying attention.” Gieni told the students that, by the time they are 20, every one of them will know at least one person who will

have suffered a serious injury. In some cases, he added, it will be them. He told the students that taking proper courses, and having their friends join them, will not only keep them

safe, but they can use the learned skills to possibly save lives — including their own. Gieni’s presentation ended with a short video featuring wellknown figures, including CBC host George

Stroumboulopoulos and federal Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau, sharing their stories and delivering the same safe-risk message.” “It is your life,” Gieni said, “and you are in control of it.

Don’t leave your pets in your vehicle! Kamloops Mounties are reminding people it is too hot to leave a pet in the car after responding to several calls from people reporting animals in heat-related distress in enclosed vehicles. Doing so could lead to a charge of causing cruelty or unnecessary suffering to an animal, a Criminal-Code offence that can lead to a variety of penalties, including a maximum $10,000 fine, up to five years in prison or a combination of fine and imprisonment not exceeding 18 months. On the weekend, Kamloops reached the end of a recordbreaking early-May heat wave that has seen the temperature rise to 32 C. Environment Canada is forecasting temperatures to fall to seasonal norms, with readings in the low 20s through the week. Here are some symptoms of heatstroke in your pet. • Exaggerated panting (or the sudden stopping of panting); • Rapid or erratic pulse; • Salivation; • Anxious or staring

According to the polls, the NDP will win — or the Liberals

E

LECTIONS BC STATES publications such as Kamloops This Week cannot publish poll results on election day if those poll results have previously been published. We can, however, remind voters what the polls have been saying as election day approached. Then again, pollsters are not infallible, as voters in Alberta learned last year during that province’s general election On April 23, the results of the election were as follows: Progressive Conservatives (43.9 per cent of the popular vote), Wildrose (34.3), Liberal (9.9), NDP (9.8) and other (2). Only 24 hours before election day, Forum Research had Wildrose at 38 per cent of the popular vote and the Progressive Conservatives at 36 per cent. The difference between what was forecast for the Progressive Conservatives and what actually occurred was eight per cent — which is a massive difference when calculating votes and seats won or lost. Other polls leading to the April 23 election were as skewed, with Abacus Data on April 20 calling Wildrose at 41 per cent and the Progressive Conservatives at 31 per cent. On April 17, Leger Marketing pegged Wildrose at 42 per cent and the Progressive Conservatives at 36 per cent. As can be seen, the polling predictions for the frontrunners hardly resembled the voting patterns of the electorate. (The Alberta polls concerning

CHRISTOPHER FOULDS Newsroom

MUSINGS also-rans like the Liberals, NDP and Alberta Party did not have the same disparity between prognostication and reality). Well before the B.C. election campaign began, one could have lined up the buses of all political-party leaders side by side and driven them through the gaping hole that was the difference between the favoured NDP and trailing Liberals, based on polls. Even as the campaign began on April 16, the Liberal baggage (HST, BC Rail et al) was still significant enough to produce double-digit NDP leads in all polls. However, as today’s voting day approached, those same polls began showing a dramatic narrowing of the gap between voter preference for the NDP and Liberals. Four days ago, an Oraclepoll Research Ltd. poll had the NDP at 41 per cent, the Liberals at 37 per cent, the Greens at 12 per cent and the Conservatives at 10 per cent. However, those numbers were from decided voters. Consider that 24 per cent of respondents remained undecided. All of which means do not be

surprised in the least if all the polling numbers of the past 28 days do not resemble final tallies after 8 p.m. tonight. As for the parties, it is evident that an NDP win would herald the end of Christy Clark’s stint as leader of the Liberals. Would a Liberal win solidify her hold on power despite the rocky road to this election and despite having a lone MLA’s support (Harry Bloy) at the February 2011 leadership convention? If Clark leads the Liberals to victory, will the shadowy (and cowardly) 801 group pull back on its plan to have her ousted? Would a Liberal win impact Adrian Dix’s leadership? Does he have the benefit of more time or will a loss be seen as a collapse on par with Sergio Garcia this past weekend in Florida? The only safe statement can be directed toward the Conservatives and Greens, where a “win” will be defined by something as simple as electing a single MLA — and that likelihood is extremely slim for John Cummins’ crew and possible for Jane Sterk’s team in Oak Bay-Gordon Head, where Andrew Weaver is carrying the Green flag. It’s all so interesting, in particular because nobody knows what the heck will happen tonight. Last night, the NHL featured two winner-take-all Game 7 playoff games. Consider tonight the political equivalent of a Game 7 — where laying a wager on the winner is a mug’s game. editor@kamloopsthisweek.com

Today’s provincial election will be one of the most important in a generation. At a time when the economy appears to be in slow motion, yet demands on the public purse are increasing, voters need to pay attention to who is running — and why. Of course, it’s the same for every election — to little avail. In the 2009 provincial election, only about 50 per cent of voters bothered to cast a vote. Who is to blame and will things be any different this year? Is it helplessness and apathy that keep people away from the polls? Many people simply don’t connect with government. Perhaps B.C. voters simply distrust anything politicians say. When there is a real issue, such as lack of funding for health care or education or transit, many eligible voters simply don’t see the connection between their vote and government policy. Instead, they leave the field to special interest groups — business, unions, lobbyists — to influence the results. The truth is that politicians will only be accountable if we hold them accountable. We have a right to toss any of them out if they don’t do what they promised, so voters need to pay attention to what politicians say and they need to find out who they are. Over the past several weeks, Kamloops This Week and other city media have covered the campaigns in the Kamloops-North Thompson and Kamloops-South Thompson ridings. You can learn their positions on issues, view photos, examine their profiles and read what they think is important and what they intend to do about it if elected. You can find this information online at kamloopsthisweek.com/ news/election. It’s important information to have before going to the polls. More critical, of course, is that you actually cast a ballot. Go online to elections.bc.ca and turn to today’s front page to find out where to vote. Then do so.

Let’s expand Royal Inland with green plan in mind Editor: Both the NDP and Liberals say they support the Royal Inland Hospital expansion. But, neither party has said it will go green.

In this day and age, we have the technology to build environmentally friendly buildings. The Kamloops hospital should have geothermal heating and air conditioning, among

other green products. Let’s build this hospital to today’s standards as it will pay for the new technology in a short time and be less costly in the long term.

Perhaps MP can mail out information on missing billions Editor: I have just received KamloopsThompson-Cariboo Conservative MP Cathy McLeod’s householder mailout highlighting the great benefits of Economic Action Plan 2013. I might find it more credible if the Conservatives could explain the $3.1 billion unaccounted for up to 2009. We can’t know how much has gone missing since then because, in 2010, the Treasury Board (which is headed up by Tony Clement whom, as we all recall, spent $55 million on outdoor bathroom facilities and gazebos in his own riding from funds allocated to border security) approved the Terrorism Secretariat’s request to end the government-wide reporting requirements on its spending. It would be more credible if the Conservatives would collect the $29

billion in income taxes owed. It would certainly be more credible if the $2.4 billion paid for outside consultants hired by the federal government came with an explanation for the work done. Despite Treasury Board guidelines requiring it, Clement refuses to make that explanation. It might be more credible if the guidelines issued by the Treasury Board that state government ads are supposed to inform citizens about programs and services were followed. Unfortunately, the $113 million of taxpayers’ money that Prime Minister Stephen Harper has spent on ads since 2009 don’t generally do that. The ads being run during the NHL playoffs contain no new initiatives or measures. I realize McLeod is simply parroting

Harper’s talking points, but her householder has to be suspect — because how would we know the truth? When $3.1 billion can “go missing” with no documentation available to the auditor general, when the government won’t explain about billions paid to outside consultants, when millions are spent on television ads that say nothing, how can we possibly believe what we are told? I’ll bet McLeod wishes the $13-billion surplus her government inherited in 2006 and frittered away on swimming pools and curling rinks (before the recession hit) was still around. Then her government and her householder might have some credibility. Diane McLeod Membership chair Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo federal Liberal Riding Association

LOCAL NEWS

Ottawa to close research centre in Kamloops By Dale Bass STAFF REPORTER dale@kamloopsthisweek.com

Although two years ago she called it a fantastic facility, Kamloops-Thompson-Cariboo MP Cathy McLeod said she understands why the federal agriculture-research centre in Kamloops must be shut down. The centre, a fixture in the city’s agriculture sector for almost eight decades, will be closed in the fall and the 14 staff there have been laid off. Bob Jackson, regional executive vice-president with the Public Service Alliance of Canada, which represents nine of the 14 staff, said the likelihood of finding another federal-sector job in Kamloops is unlikely. McLeod, who praised the facility in 2011 when it was also facing closure, but refocused and renamed the Grassland Applied Technology Centre, said the building and its labs are

first-rate and might find another use. When asked if that meant the building could be sold, McLeod said an intensive analysis would be done, other stakeholders consulted and a decision will be made. The Conservative backbencher said she is disappointed at the decision, one of many layoffs and closures announced nationally this week, but said the Growing Forward 2 program will help fill the gap. KTW sent an email to Agriculture and Agrifood Canada (AAFC), asking why the centre was being closed. Its explanation: “We are consolidating our national science capacity in key locations in line with our efforts to concentrate expertise and use our resources more effectively to generate the science and knowledge needed to advance the industry. “AAFC will continue to support the beef sector along the innovation continuum. AAFC performs the science at the early

stages of the development cycle that industry will build upon through research collaborations with academia and the private sector using GF2 federal investments.” Jackson said the federal government wants out of doing scientific research, “They don’t believe in it,” he said. “It’s a sad tragedy, it really is.” Jackson said a national health and safety conference his union held last month showed the percentage of public-sector workers now accessing mental-health counselling through programs “has gone through the roof.” McLeod said she was told no research has been undertaken at the centre since 2011; however, Lauchlan Fraser, a science professor at Thompson Rivers University, said TRU has worked in partnership with the researchers at the centre for some time. “It’s a shame,” Fraser said. “We have such a long history of excellent research coming out of that station.”

Former Kamloops resident in the running for world’s greatest job Henschel lived in Kamloops until moving to Montreal for school in 2005, and still considers it to be his hometown. It was in the Tournament Capital that his career in photography and film began. If Henschel wins the contest, he will work as a lifestyle photojournalist in Melbourne, Australia, with Time Out magazine. He will be expected to produce blogs and video diaries as well as create city and country photo shoots, while working with wellknown Aussie personalities, designers and artists. Henschel will be capturing the experiences of Melbourne’s laneways, cool cafes and hidden rooftop bars as well as hot-air ballooning and attending major festivals and music events. Some of the assignments will include surfing on the Great Ocean

A former Kamloops resident has the chance to get paid over $100,000 to do his dream job. Chris Henschel applied for one of the Best Jobs in the World without ever expecting to get it. Since receiving an email indicating he was one of the top 25 candidates for a contest put on by Tourism Australia, his life has been a whirlwind. He has spent the last few weeks attending television interviews and working to promote himself in hopes of landing a sixmonth photojournalism position that would require him to put his “MacGyver” skills to the test. “While working on a film set you have to make do with what you have,” Henschel said. “You need to be MacGyver.”

In addition to the gross wage of $50,000 AUD for six months work, he would also be given $50,000 AUD to cover accommodation and transport, as well as a laptop supplied by Dell. For Henschel, however, the experience itself would be worth well more. “It has already given me the confidence to promote myself,” he said. “To get out there and just know that I can do it has motivated me.” Henschel also believes he would be able to learn a number of valuable skills through the job, allow-

the final phase of the process. There has been no word as to what it will entail, he said, explaining organizers are keeping a lot of details of the contest — and job itself — quiet. Henschel said he expects to find out as soon as tomorrow (May 15) if he’s made it to the top three.

WOLFPACK WOES Jake Hein and the TRU WolfPack were unable to reach the final of the Canadian College Baseball Conference Championship, which wrapped up on Sunday, May 12, at Norbrock Stadium. Instead, the Prairie Baseball Academy Dawgs won their third-straight title, beating the Calgary Dinos 5-4 in the championship game. TRU has hosted the tournament since 2010. The WolfPack were unable to win a title in that stretch, with the championship moving next season to Lethbridge. The WolfPack posted a 2-2 record in round-robin play, tying them with the Dinos, but Calgary, with a victory over TRU in pool play, held the tiebreaker and advanced to the semifinal. The Cowtown squad, which finished last in CCBC regular-season play, beat Vancouver Island Baseball Institute of Nanaimo 4-3 to advance to the final. The Dawgs clawed back from an early deficit to down the Dinos and claim gold. Allen Douglas/KTW

Hilton adds national handball gold to résumé By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

S

TUDYING on scholarship in Calgary, summering in Sweden and winning handball gold for Canada in Guatemala. Emily Hilton leads an interesting life, to say the least. The 19-year-old Sa-Hali secondary graduate was part of the under-20 national team that placed first at the International Handball Federation Pan-American Women’s Continental Cup, which wrapped up earlier this month Guatemala. “I was really happy with the tournament,”

said Hilton, who led the competition in shot blocks. “It was a unique experience for sure. There was a bit of culture shock.” It was not just Guatemala City that took some getting used to, with Hilton playing on a Canadian team full of francophones. “Handball is big in Quebec,” Hilton said. “All the players were French. All the coaches were French. Most of the coaching was done in French. Most of the practices and pre-game talks were in French. “I actually had to have one of the assistant coaches translate word for word what the real coach was saying and

my Sa-Hali secondary Grade 12 French came in handy.” Hilton, the only player on the team not from Quebec, was unsure on arrival how she would fit in with her teammates, but any fears were soon quelled. “A lot of these players had played together for five or six years on the juvenile national team and on the Quebec provincial team, but they welcomed me,” she said. Canada qualified for the Pan-American tournament by winning the under-20 North American championship in Mexico City, an event Hilton could not attend due to commitments at the University

of Calgary. In May 2012, she earned one of Canada’s most prestigious scholarships — the Loran, conferred to only 30 of the nation’s best students each year. The Loran — awarded based on academics, character, service and leadership potential — is worth about $80,000. Canada lost to Mexico in roundrobin play at the North American tournament, but won the rematch with gold on the line in the final. The Great White North handballers enjoyed a similar fate at the Pan-American championship, losing by two to Venezuela in pool play before dump-

ing the South American country 21-19 in the gold-medal tilt. With the victory, Canada claimed a spot at the under-20 world championship, to be held in October at a yet-to-be-determined location. Hilton might not be able to attend, with commitment to school being a priority. The Kamloops product did not have much time to rest after the trip home from Guatemala on May 5. She left on Monday, May 13, for Jonkoping, Sweden, where she will spend the summer interning, studying climate control. It will be a homecoming of sorts for

Rugby club hunts players

HEAT SCORCHED

Athletes age 14 to 18 interested in playing rugby are invited to the Tournament Capital Ranch tonight (May 14) and on Thursday, May 16. The Kamloops Rugby Club is holding registration sessions, at 5:30 p.m. on both nights, with clinics to follow at 6:30 p.m. No past experience is required. The club is also on the lookout for coaches, managers and trainers with first-aid.

Golf at the Peaks

The Kamloops Heat men found out the jump to the Pacific Coast Soccer League’s premier division will not be easy. Oriol Torres beat a diving goalkeeper (pictured) to score the River City squad’s only goal in a season-opening 3-1 loss to Bellingham at Hillside Stadium on Saturday, May 11. The Heat are this year competing in the premier division after finishing atop the reserve division standings in 2012.

Blazers: In Bones we trust By Marty Hastings STAFF REPORTER sports@kamloopsthisweek.com

There are not too many sure things when it comes to the Kamloops Blazers this off-season, but Craig Bonner’s contract extension came as no surprise. The Blazers’ vicepresident and general manager signed a multiyear extension with the club on Monday, May 13. “Craig has done a tremendous job improving the Kamloops Blazers over the past five seasons,” Blazer majority owner, president and governor Tom Gaglardi said in a press release. “He has provided the stability, leadership and foresight necessary to create a program that will continue to allow

General manager Craig Bonner signed a contract extension with the Kamloops Blazers on Monday, May 13.

the Blazers to be competitive year after year.” The length of Bonner’s new contract was not disclosed. Bonner, who became the club’s GM in April 2008, has a busy week ahead of him, with decisions on coaching staff expected to be finalized soon, likely by Friday, May 17. Rumours have Dave Hunchak vacating the

associate coach role in favour of the head coaching job, with current bench boss Guy Charron taking more of a backseat role. Nothing has been confirmed by Blazer management or ownership. Bonner has occupied three roles — player, coach and GM — in 16 seasons with the Blazers, winning the

WHL championship as a player in 1990, along with the league and Memorial Cup titles in 1992. The Blazers missed the playoffs under Bonner’s guidance in the 2010-2011 campaign, but have since posted back-to-back 47-win seasons. Kamloops won the B.C. Division crown in 2012 before bowing out of the playoffs in Round 2, losing in seven games to the Portland Winterhawks. In May, the Winterhawks disposed of the Blazers in the Western Conference final, winning the series in five games. “Craig has built a solid foundation and has positioned us for continued success moving forward,” Gaglardi said.

Opportunity to chase Olympic dreams The search for Kamloops’ next Olympic athletes continues at Podium Search on Friday, May 17, at the Tournament Capital Centre. Podium Search is a free, half-day talentidentification camp, aimed at discovering youth with the skills needed to excel in one of Canadian Sport Institute’s (CSI) talentdevelopment programs. The camp, for ath-

letes age 15 to 22, is a CSI event, administered by PacificSport Interior B.C. Each athlete receives basic physiological and anthropometric test results to find out how they measure up against national-team standards. Assessments include the verticaljump test, medicineball throw, 30-metre sprint and 20-metre shuttle run, among

other drills. Those who perform exceedingly well may be contacted for further assessment and receive an offer to enrol in a talent-development program. Jessica Vliegenthart, who competed for Canada in wheelchair basketball at the 2012 Summer Paralympic Games in London, will speak at the event. Athletes can register online at csipacific.ca.

HEN YOU HEAR THE WORD “MUGSHOT,” WHAT COMES TO MIND? Is it Nick Nolte’s legendary crazy-hair photo taken after a drunk-driving arrest in 2002? One of the pics documenting Lindsay Lohan’s latest probation violation? Maybe you think of NFL player Desmond Bryant’s derpy look in his mugshot from earlier this year or, to get more local, Mark Lindsay’s apparent Wolverine-inspired mug that’s received a lot of ink in this newspaper over the last 12 months. These are what we know as mugshots. One picture, face-forward — sometimes augmented by a profile shot, sometimes not. There is cold fluorescent lighting, a dull background and no posing. That has not always been the case. When you look at the 100 historical mugshots hanging on the walls of the Kamloops Museum and Archives, one thing becomes immediately clear. A lot of them look nothing like mugshots. All of the photos are more than a century old, with dates ranging from 1886 to 1907, and some of them are of the standard one-head-on-one-profile mugshot variety we’ve become used to seeing. But, a lot of them look like portraits — a man, seemingly well-dressed, sitting in a chair and almost posing in front of a draped curtain. Beautiful images, to be sure, but a far cry from the cold, boring mugshots we’re used to seeing. “When these mugshots were taken, most police departments didn’t have their own equipment, so they’d take them to commercial photographers,” said museum curator Dennis Oomen. “At this time, the 19th and early 20th century, police departments were trying new tools and using new technology to have reliable identification.” The exhibit, Arresting Images, opened last week at the Kamloops Museum and Archives and will run through August, with an opening reception slated for May 23. All of the mugshots are on loan from the Ontario Provincial Police Museum in Sarnia, Ont. Oomen said he plans to augment the exhibit with some local historical mugshots from the museum’s files. But, the images are universally powerful on their own. “From my point of view, crime and criminal behaviour affects every community,” Oomen said. “Ontario police, at this time, was dealing with new methods, and western police forces were coping with the same problems in positive identification and trying new technologies as well.” The photos, probably because of the equipment used at the time, are much deeper than the digital mugshots seen in news stories today. “Some of them are very revealing just of charac-

He is acclaimed for the beauty of his voice, incisive musicianship and his generosity with his audience. The program includes songs by Franz Schubert, Robert Schumann, Benjamin Britten, Samuel Barber and others.

Once the mugshots are cleared out of the exhibit space at the Kamloops Museum and Archives in August, curator Dennis Oomen said the next display will be about the War of 1812 — the years-long battle between the U.S. and the British Commonwealth, fought on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border, that had lasting impacts on Canada’s development as a country.

ter and circumstance,” Oomen said. “They’re mesmerizing photos in and of themselves. You can just sit there and look at them and try to imagine the stories behind them.” Most of the photos also include an identification card, which lists the name, age and charges against the alleged criminal. “At this time in policing history, you could be arrested for vagrancy or on suspicion, or for being a ‘loose and disorderly person,’” Oomen said. “Every community had to deal with criminality and, more than most professions, police services and bureaus were looking for consistent approaches to identification. “This exhibit just has universal appeal. The subject is universal to all communities and to all people. “You have personal stories that intertwine with the larger community and you have, in some cases, beautifully rendered photographs that give a real glimpse into another time.” The Kamloops Museum and Archives is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Admission is by donation.

‘I made my husband a promise and I’m not going to let it go’ Widow of award-winning local author and historian vows to finish her husband’s latest book By Tim Petruk

To read an excerpt from Taken at the Flood, go online to kamloopsthisweek.com and click the Community tab

STAFF REPORTER tim@kamloopsthisweek.com

Peter Grauer died before he could finish his latest local-history book, but that doesn’t mean it won’t get done. “He wrote it all, but PETER GRAUER we haven’t assembled it yet,” said Karen Grauer, Peter’s partner of more than four decades. “We’ve got pictures to do and that sort of stuff, and we have a few committed people.” Peter was born in Revelstoke in 1941 and studied at the University of British Columbia, but settled in Kamloops in his adult life. He died in Kamloops on April 27. Always keenly interested in history, Peter became fascinated with the story of Bill Miner. In 2006, after years of research, he released his first book, the self-published Interred With Their Bones, detailing the Miner story. That work garnered praise from historians and a high honour in the form of the B.C. Lieutenant Governor’s Award for history writing. During his research for the Miner book, Peter

came across interesting tidbits that inspired his yetunfinished book, Taken at the Flood. Karen said her husband spent six years working on the book, which will be published posthumously by Peter’s family and friends. “I made my husband a promise and I’m not going to let it go,” Karen said. “This new book is going to be fantastic and it has to be out there.” An excerpt from Taken at the Flood was published last summer on Page A3 of KTW’s special edition celebrating Kamloops’ bicentennial. The excerpt detailed what Fort Kamloops was like in the mid-19th century. The book itself describes, in very great detail, the early years of the Cariboo gold rush.. Peter leaves behind his wife as well as a daughter, Kirsten Marie Grauer, five-year-old granddaughter Noah Marie Grauer Bell and son-in-law Timothy John Bell, all of Kamloops. He was predeceased by his son, Karl, in 1999. Karen said the family will not hold a service at this time, instead planning to celebrate Peter’s life at the launch of Taken at the Flood later this year.

B uckle up with B rittany

Last week I got to test drive the NEW 2013 DODGE DART. The Dart is sleek and stylish - it’s like driving a sports car, yet has the room of a family car. I was surprised at how large the trunk was! You can fold the seats down as well if you need more space. The seats are very comfortable, and I loved the look of the dashboard as it was very clean and uncluttered. The Dart is very smooth to drive and having the options for both automatic and standard transmission was Fantastic!

Now it’s your turn! Come test drive it yourself!

“Whoa, man, that’s big.” It wasn’t the first time I was hearing the comment — and it wouldn’t be the last. That’s because the 2013 Traverse is Chevy’s largest crossover utility vehicle (CUV), almost rivaling the truck-based Suburban SUV when it comes to full-size interior space and dimensions. The Traverse first debuted as a 2009 model, replacing the Trailblazer and sharing its new Lambda platform, doors and running gear with the GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave. Built to bridge the gap between minivans and SUVs, the Traverse first debuted at the Chicago Auto Show in 2008. Frankly, it didn’t create much of a stir at the time because, let’s face it, this “new gathering place for families” doesn’t quite carry the cachet, the tag line or the sex appeal of Chevy lineup all-stars like the Corvette or Camaro. But, give GM points for trying to jazz up the Traverse for 2013, giving this big-boned baby a mid-life makeover complete with a little more design flair, new exterior sculpting and lighting jewelry tweaks and better ride and handling, along

with improved interior accommodations and updated technologies inside. The Traverse benefits from a long wheelbase and an independent suspension that has been improved for 2013, with new rebound springs in the front struts for roll control and new shock valves for a smoother ride. It eats up highway miles with a smooth and stately grace. The Traverse comes with one engine — a standard 3.6-litre V6 that puts out near-V8 power thanks to directinjection technology and continuously variable valve timing. It is rated at 281 horse power at 6,300 r.p.m. and 266-poundfeet of torque available over a broad rev range from 2,500 to 6,000 r.p.m. — more than enough moxie to move even this almost 4,900pound behemoth up to speed. Chevrolet does offer one incremental engine tweak — a top-trim dual-exhaust system that ups the power to 288 horses and 270pound-feet. The 3.6-litre V6 engine is mated to the second-generation Hydra-Matic 6T75 six-speed automatic transmission that has been geared for fuel economy, but upgraded for 2013 with a quicker, more consistent shift pattern. Front-wheel drive

comes standard, but an all-wheel drive system (add on $3,000), as tested here, actively manages torque distribution between the front and rear axles and is available in all trim levels. Fuel economy for this AWD tester has been rated by Transport Canada at 13/8.6L/100km (city/ highway). As usual, American EPA testing rates the Traverse less optimistically at 14.7/10.2L/100km (city/highway), more realistic numbers, but not as realistic as my particular mix of city and highway driving — 13.9L/100km (combined). Inside, the Traverse offers a high driver’s vantage point, even at the lowest seat setting, and room for up to eight adults — or seven in this case, courtesy optional second-row Smart Slide bucket seats instead of a bench. Chevrolet boasts class-leading spaciousness and more cargocarrying capacity than any other vehicle in its segment. The 2013 Chevrolet Traverse comes in four trim level choices — LS ($32,995), 1LT ($36,035), 2LT ($40,125) or LTZ ($45,875). As mentioned earlier, the all-wheel drive option adds $3,000 to those MSRPs. As expected, the Traverse comes com-

Michelin helping Canadians stay safe on the road risk of fishtailing and loss of stability in wet conditions.

Wet Driving Wet road conditions present dangers of less grip and longer stopping distance. • Slow down — Slowing down dramatically decreases the risk of accidents in rain. • 10 and two — Always drive with two hands on the steering

— Only brake in a straight line before the turn and do so gradually. Do not brake during the turn. • Give them room — Increase your following distance from other cars to allow for more stopping range. • Try not to panic

— If hydroplaning, do not accelerate or brake suddenly. Keep your foot lightly on the gas and steer the car forward until your tires regain traction.

Blowouts This can be one of

the most frightening moments on the road. • Be safe — As a precaution, always drive with both hands on the wheel. • Stay calm — If you have a tire blowout, don’t panic. The loud noise will startle you, but follow

these rules and you’ll quickly and safely regain control. First, keep your foot on the gas, grip the wheel firmly and stay in your lane. Then, slow down gradually and carefully steer toward the shoulder of the road.

Check Your Tires After all, your tires are the only part of your car that touches the road. • Check your tires for wear — Using the penny test, put the edge of the coin into the tread with the Queen going in headfirst. If the top of the Queen’s head is covered by tread, that’s good. If the top of her head is entirely visible, it’s time to replace the tire. • Check the air pressure — Tires have been known to lose up to 1 psi (pounds per square inch) of pressure every month. Use a proper pressure gauge to check pressure when tires are cold (before driving or three hours after driving). Make sure your tires are inflated to the psi on the sticker inside the driver’s door of your car. Do not compare to the psi on your tire’s sidewall. • Don’t mix tires — If you’re replacing only two new tires instead of four, be sure they are the same size and type as the current ones. Always install the new tires on the rear axle of your vehicle, which will reduce the

wheel • No drifting — Slow down before turning and maintain a consistent speed throughout the turn. • Don’t be a jerk — While turning, don’t make sudden steering wheel movements. • Straight up

Welcome The staff and management of Smith Chevrolet Cadillac Ltd. are pleased to welcome

Dale McNutt.

Dale has worked in the automotive industry for 15 years, and we are excited to have him as part of our team!

Refined interior and centre-stack among inside upgrades It also included the new-for-2013 Chevrolet MyLink system that seamlessly integrates entertainment, communication and online services such as Stitcher SmartRadio using hands-free voice and touch-screen controls as well as via Bluetooth-enabled phones. All Traverse models, regardless of trim level, feature a more refined interior this year, with upgraded materials that include soft-touch surfaces on the instrument panel and front door uppers, contrasting stitching and chrome and silver accents. Available blue ambient lighting adds elegance. A new centre stack for 2013 showcases a 6.5-inch colour touch radio display, an ergonomic layout and large illuminated

climate controls. With new articulating head restraints that can be adjusted up or down and fore and aft, new levels of fit and finish and an all-new and industry-exclusive added side impact air bag between the front seats, the list of improvements goes on and on. And all this is wrapped in a new exterior design featuring a wider, split grille — the new corporate face of Chevrolet sedans and crossovers. A new powerdome hood also adds a little machismo to the mix. New, sleek headlamps, chrome accents around the grille and fog lamps complement revised, sculpted corners that hint at Malibu design. And, in back, the licence-plate pocket moves off the bumper and up into a recess in the new, sportier liftgate.

If you squint your eyes a little, you might even find a hint of Camaro influence in the darker-tinted taillamps. With these recent revisions and changes, inside and out, the 2013 Chevy Traverse should carry over with only minor yearly updates until an expected next-generation vehicle for 2016. But, in the here and now, it offers a viable alternative to competitors like the Ford Explorer and Mazda CX-9. And, although tested here in fairly posh 2LT AWD trim at $43,125, in typical Chevrolet price positioning the Traverse offers consumers a more affordable entry point into the full-size CUV lineup (starting at $32,995) compared to its more upscale GM siblings, the GMC Acadia (starting at $36,210) and Buick Enclave (starting at $41,525).

AUTO MARKET

Sierra safety alerts bolster driver awareness The 2014 GMC Sierra arrives this summer with available advanced active-safety features never offered to full-size pickup truck owners, including forwardcollision alert and lane-departure warning. The manner by which alerts from the system are delivered to the driver is equally innovative, thanks to GMC’s optional safetyalert seat. With the seat, Sierra drivers get feedback transmitted as a vibration through the surface of the driver’s seat-bottom cushion. When the lane-departure warning system’s camera detects the Sierra is leaving a lane without a turn signal active in that direction, a vibration in the left or right

side of the seat bolster directs the driver’s attention to the side of the lane encroachment. When a potential collision is detected ahead by the forwardcollision alert system, both sides of the seat vibrate. Forward-collision alert uses a camera behind the windshield to monitor traffic ahead and estimate time to collision. A green vehicle-shaped icon on the instrument cluster lets the driver know the system detects a vehicle ahead. When the Sierra gets too close to a vehicle ahead, the icon turns orange. When approaching a vehicle too rapidly, red lights flash on the windshield and the driver is alerted

either audibly or through the optional safety-alert seat. Using the same sophisticated camera technology, lane-departure warning uses an icon of a vehicle crossing a dotted lane marker and shines green when detecting a lane ahead at speeds above 56 km/h. The icon glows amber and flashes when a warning is active. Both forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning can be deactivated if the driver desires. Both, along with the safety-alert seat, are available on select trim levels. Sierra’s other active safety features include standard StabiliTrak and optional technologies like a rear-vision camera and front and rear park assist.

The 2014 GMC Sierra pickup is now available with GM’S safety-alert seat that warns the driver of possible collisions and lane departures through vibrations in the seat.

Sierra also benefits from available trailering safety technologies, like trailer-sway control and an integrated trailer-brake controller. In addition to active safety features, the 2014 Sierra features six

standard air bags and high-strength steel in the A-pillars, B-pillars, roof rails and other body structures to create a solid and protected safety cage around the passenger cabin. kia.ca

The organizing committee of the Shanghai International Auto Show awarded Best Chinese Premiere to Infiniti’s latest model, the all-new Q50. In co-operation with sohu.com, one of China’s leading news websites, the Q50 was chosen for its fresh design, sporty appearance and advanced powertrains as the committee expressed its conviction that the car will attract great consumer interest. China is a key market in Infiniti’s global growth strategy. Last year, the company established its global headquarters in Hong Kong, from where it can further its foothold in the Chinese market. At the Shanghai show, Infiniti announced local production of two vehicle versions that will be specifically developed for the Chinese market. The Infiniti Q50 debuts with a world’s first in production performance technology — Infiniti’s directadaptive steering technology and active lane control. The new steering system allows advanced control of the Q50’s tire angle and steering inputs, transmitting the driver’s intentions to the wheels faster than a mechanical system. Four different steering settings are offered, allowing customization by driver preference or road condition. The active lane control uses a camerabased lane marker detection system to further enhance oncenter driving capability and improve the vehicle’s straight ability. Inside, the Infiniti Q50 interior offers a driver-centric cockpit with an array of premium comfort and convenience features. The new Infiniti InTouch communications system includes large dual touch-screen displays and puts communication with the outside world within

MARY FAYERS After several years of failing health, Mary finally got her wish to be with Frank. Mary passed away May 5, 2013. Mary is survived by her brother in England Leslie and his wife Doris. Mary is also survived by nephew Leslie and nieces Diana and Mary. Mary is survived by her children: Valerie (Howard) Frances, Margaret (Flick), Dennis (Crystal) and David.

is now situated. At the hall and in their homes the ladies held various events to raise funds for needed equipment. Mum along with Beatrice Moore after asking the operators to “clear the line” would phone the volunteers to advise them that a fire was in progress. Mum worked for a time at Tranquille when it was a T.B. Sanitorium. She was on the dietary staff and when she was in charge of the menu would order cream puffs which made the patients happy, but not the cooks. When Dennis and David started to play hockey mum got involved with Minor Hockey. She did billeting for K.I.B.H.T. for several years. She enjoyed meeting players from across Canada and the U.S.A.. She tells a story about meeting then up and comer Jarome Iginla. Mum was an avid hockey fan and when she could no longer attend Blazers Games she listened to them on the radio.

Grandchildren: Beverly (Kevin), Kelly, Michelle (Stacey), Mike (Nola), Daryl (Angel), Doug (Jen), David (Robin), Jeff (Dallas), Kevin (Kimi), Nicole (Cody), and Byran.

Her favourite Canucks were Trevor Linden and Daniel Sedin. When mum met “Mr. Hockey” Gordy Howe she gave him a scolding for his treatment to Trevor Linden in a game she watched. She will be watching for a Canucks Stanley Cup.

Great grandchildren Jen, Taylor (Cody), Cary, Ben, Carley, Tahira, Cody, Casey, Travis, Rebecca, Chantel, Stephanie, Ember, Kendra and Emma.

Mum was quite the fisher woman in her day. Many a Saturday the car would be loaded with a big picnic and we would be off to a favourite lake, usually Pinantan, where she was sure to “catch a whale.”

Great great granddaughter Ilo-Rayen Mary was pre-deceased by Frank in 1975. Brothers George, Bill, Charlie and Peter. Sisters Edie, Dorothy and Joan. Mary was born in England. We gather from her stories that she was quite the Criket player. She met Frank during the Second World War. They married and after the war mum emigrated to Canada. Mum and Valerie, along with many other War Brides, were carried to Canada on the ship Queen Mary. After landing in Halifax in the September 1946 they travelled by train to Kamloops. Frank and Mary built a house on Williams St. where she resided until her death. When the volunteer fire department was formed for the town of North Kamloops Frank was Fire Chief and Mary was on the Ladies Auxiliary. The fire hall was built on MacKenzie Ave. where Spirit Square

“Scottish Angel” Christina Zawislak

Mum was a pretty good senior bowler and has several trophies to prove it. Mum was very generous to her family and always very proud of their accomplishments. Mum requested that there be no service. We will have a family gathering at a later date to put her ashes with dad.

Rest in Peace Mum. In lieu of flowers donations to K.I.B.I.T. in memory of Mary would be welcomed. Funds will be used to give an annual award to a Bantam player who displays good sportsmanship. Donations payable to K.I.B.I.T. can be sent to: K.I.B.I.T. c/o Kamloops Minor Hockey Association PO BOX 24018 Northills Centre Kamloops, BC V2B 8R3

Pennies From Heaven I found a penny today, Just laying on the ground But it’s not just a penny, This little coin I’ve found.

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Grant Ford on May 1, 2013. Rick was predeceased by both his parents, Delores and Raymond Ford. Our beautiful beloved mother and grandmother, Christina Zawislak (nee Forbes Douglas) passed away peacefully April 26, 2013 in the arms of her son David and his loving wife Heidi. Christine was predeceased by her loving husband John and caring parents Gregor and Elizabeth Douglas, her loving sisters Mary (John) and Hilda (Herb). Christine also leaves behind her loving sons David (Heidi) and Douglas (Suzanne) and her precious grandchildren Jared and Natalie, cousin David (Roseanne) Douglas, nephew Orland, loving nieces Elizabeth and Jacqueline (Roderick), and their sons Richard and Christopher (Lynsey). Mum had a special love of life, travelling on several adventures and meeting many people. She was always ready to give her trademark smile to all. She worked at R.I.H., the YWCA and the Kamloops Art Gallery, as well as countless other volunteer jobs. Special thanks to Dr. D. Hamilton for thirty years of continuous attention to Mum’s needs. Mum’s character could never be repeated and there was never a piece of chocolate she would pass by. Mum will be missed forever and ever, and will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers. Arrangements entrusted to Kamloops Funeral Home Condolences may be sent to the family from www.kamloopsfuneralhome.com

Rick is survived by his daughters Rene (Mike) McCormick of Kamloops, Angie (Brent) Neufeld of Prince George and Charmaine Ford (Dave) of Kamloops. Also left to cherish his memory is his sister Marlynn (Howard) Cameron of Nova Scotia. Oompapa had six wonderful grandchildren in which he loved to tease, Alijah, Austin, Isaiah, Stephanie, Brooklyn and Carter. He was born August 10, 1948 in Athabasca Alb and moved to Kamloops around 1966. “Tricky Ricky.” worked for CP Rail from 1969 until he retired in 2003. Dad will always be remembered for his antique cars, building his models and collecting and playing with his “Dinky Cars” The Family would like to thank Dr. Farrell and the IHA Nurses who took great care of Dad, especially Holly In accordance with his wishes, there will be no service. The family kindly requests, in lieu of flowers, that donations be made to the Salvation Army at 344 Poplar St. Kamloops, BC. 250-554-1611

“Found” pennies come from heaven, That’s what my Grandpa told me He said angels toss them down; Oh, how I loved that story.

You are missed. Memories are all we have. We keep them close to comfort us. You are loved and longed for always. “Mourn ya ‘til we join ya” Love Mom, Dave, Jacqui, Sarah & Jackson XOXO

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 aven penny from heaven That an angel tossed to you.
